Kyle: It looks like I’ve interrupted something. What are you two talking about?

Summer: Kyle, chance was just here. He told us the news that, um, he found proof that our mom is alive.

Daniel: No more doubts. No more questions. It’s undeniable. Chance is absolutely sure.

Summer: That means that the charges against diane are gonna be dropped. You believed that your mom was innocent this whole time. You were right. I’m sorry that I blamed her for a murder that didn’t even happen.

Kyle: You were racked with grief. I know how hard it is to face a pain like that.

Summer: And you know exactly what it feels like to find out that it was all lie.

Kyle: Of course, I do.

Summer: I’m so sorry. I hope that you can forgive me.

Kyle: Of course, I can. You were in pain and needed answers. All the clues pointed to my mom because that’s what stark wanted. I’m just glad he can never hurt anyone ever again.

Summer: So hasst that happened yet? Has she been formally released?

Kyle: It’s true. My mom is free.

Lucy: Thanks for letting me hang out at your offices today.

Lily: Of course.

Lucy: Those coders were so cool. I mean, it’s a totally different crore than my mom’s office friends.

Lily: Yeah. I know. Well, of course. And they have amazing fashion sense. They definitely keep our offices on trend.

Lucy: I didn’t see a single blue suit, which is basically my mom’s entire office uniform.

Lily: Well, I mean, lawyers are really cool too, in their own way.

Lucy: Um… lily…

Lily: Yeah? Lucy, whatever it is, I promise you can ask me.

Lucy: Is it true that you and my dad were married when you guys were basically kids?

[ Sally sighing ]

[ Sally panting ]

Sally: What is going on? Oh, did you feel that too?

Faith: Mariah, you don’t have to stay to help clean up. I’ve got this.

Mariah: Oh, no, you– you just got home. You can go unpack or hang out with dorm cat.

Faith: His name is borgnine, as you know. And he’s probably still sleeping. So, I’m on cleanup duty. And you know just how much I love washing dirty dishes.

Mariah: I know that. So, I’m gonna let you wash and I will dry.

Faith: Thanks. How kind of you.

Mariah: Well, I gave you a chance to escape, but you sort of blew it, so.

Nick: I mean, will you look at these pictures? The greatest collection of women who’ve ever been assembled. The photographer’s obviously very talented. He crushed it.

Faith: Poor dad. You can’t actually take credit for all of our fabulousness. All you did was take the picture.

Nick: That’s a skill, faith. I mean, you can’t just aim and shoot, all right? The framing, the lighting, it’s all perfect. I mean, ask your mom. She’s impressed.

Faith: Mom?

Sharon: Huh? Yeah. Uh, you’re all wonderful and– and talented.

Mariah: Uh, sort of out of nowhere, but I will take it.

Faith: What’s going on? What’s got you so distracted? Ma ma ma ma

[Clears throut]

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Mariah: Is it all the mom and grandma overload? It’s too much joy all at once?

Sharon: Yes. That’s exactly what I was thinking about, our family and how lucky I am to have all of you. But it is time for you two to go. There’s no reason for you to hang out. Nick can help me clean up.

Faith: We don’t mind. Really.

Sharon: No, no. Faith, you just got home. Why don’t you go and visit your friends or visit family. I know that victor and nikki are dying to see you.

Faith: I did promise granddad I’d be by to lose at chess.

Mariah: Wow. That’s the fighting spirit.

Faith: Guess the dirty dishes are on you, dad.

Nick: It is my welcome home gift to you, kiddo.

Sharon: Have fun.

Faith: Bye. Maybe we can go to the tack house first so I can video chat moses and show him the new baby.

Mariah: Perfect. I mean, if she’s asleep, she will not be for long. Trust me. Bye, guys.

Nick: Bye.

Sharon: Bye.

Nick: You did a great job covering. What was in the box that was delivered?

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: This is the motel where cameron attacked you. The son of a bitch has a twisted sense of humor.

Sharon: Makes me sick to my stomach to think about it. But, he’s in prison, right?

Nick: I mean, he certainly should be. There’s no way this lunatic should be out in the streets ever again.

Sharon: Cameron is up to something. Sending me all of these little packages and gifts. What can he possibly want? What message is he trying to send?

[ Door knocking ]

Chance: Hey.

Nick: Hey.

Chance: I got news about kirsten. It’s not great.

Cameron: Miss? Hey, I– I don’t mean to bother you, but, um, are you okay?

Sally: Yeah, I’m– I’m fine. I just– I had a little double vision. It’s just making me dizzy.

Cameron: Yeah. Well, look in– in your condition that’s– that’s nothing to mess around with, uh. Can I– can I call somebody for you?

Daniel: Well, you must be relieved, kyle. Your mom’s been vindicated. What our mother put you and the rest of your family through was brutal. Still can’t believe she would do such a thing.

Summer: But it wasn’t mom’s fault. You know, it was stark. He was the one that lured her in, manipulated her, threatened to kill her when she didn’t do what he wanted. I mean, that’s what she told you, right?

Daniel: Right. And, you know, I’m sure stark didn’t expect to wind up dead.

Summer: If stark had it his way, then mom would be the one that was dead right now. Both mom and diane are stark’s victim.

Daniel: Exactly. Just let your mom know how happy I am that this part of the nightmare is over for her and I’m sorry that I couldn’t do something to clear her sooner.

Kyle: I’ll certainly pass along your message. And we’ll always owe you a debt of gratitude for coming forward after hearing about phyllis.

Daniel: It was the only right thing to do.

Kyle: Even so, you could have kept phyllis’s secret. I know you wanted to protect her at all costs, but you didn’T. You came forward and set my mom free.

Daniel: Well, I can never stay quiet when someone’s entire future is at stake. I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself otherwise.

Kyle: I– I realize the emotions are complicated for both of you, but the good news is your mother is alive. It’s like a miracle you secretly hope for, but never out loud. I get it. And when phyllis comes forward and explains why she did what she did, christine, the police, they’ll listen. They’ll try to be fair. I know you’re worried about the repercussions, but phyllis is tough as hell. She’ll get through it.

Summer: There shouldn’t be any repercussions. Anything criminal my mom did was in self-defense. She’s not a murderer. She’s just not. The D.A. Is gonna see that. She has to. (Vo) nature valley is committed to protecting our national parks.

Lily: Um, who told you that your dad and I were married?

Lucy: So, it’s true.

Lily: Well, it was a very long time ago.

Lucy: Wow. That’s a yes.

Lily: Okay. Have you talked to your dad about this?

Lucy: No, not– not yet. But– but I can if you’re not comfortable talking about it. I mean, dad will tell me the truth no matter what, even if it’s that awful.

Lily: Well, no, no, no, no. It– it wasn’t awful. I mean, that’s definitely an overstatement.

Lucy: How old were you guys?

Lily: Uh, we were not old enough to be married, that’s for sure.

Lucy: This is crazy. I mean, you’re literally my dad’s ex-wife and you guys just act like your old friends.

Lily: Okay, listen. I do not condone what we did at such a young age. I do not.

Lucy: Okay. Okay. I get it. I won’t run off and marry some kid from homeroom. Tell me everything.

Lily: Oh, gosh. Um…

[ Laughs ] Well, we were married for almost a year, but you know, we were just way too young and, you know, couldn’t handle the responsibility that came our way.

Lucy: I mean, you guys said vows and there– there must have been a marriage license and then a divorce? I mean, just think about all the teasing I can get off of my dad. And wait, doesn’t that make you guys each other’s first loves? Wow. How romantic is that? Now you guys are together again. I mean, that’s a book I’d totally read.

Lily: Okay, hold on.

Lucy: Wait. And if my dad ever tells me that I’m too young to know what love is, I can just point at you guys. I mean, star crossed lovers destined to finally be together.

Lily: Okay, listen.

[ Lily laughing ] We were way too young to handle what was coming our way, okay? The only thing we were destined for was failure. That’s it.

Lucy: Weren’t you guys in love?

Lily: Of course. Yeah, we were very much in love and–

Lucy: Good. Then, you can–

Lily: Hello?

Daniel: Hi.

Lily: Hi.

Daniel: These two little rays of sunshine. What did I miss?

Lucy and lily: Nothing.

[ Lily laughing ]

Sharon: I’m sick to my stomach already.

Nick: What’d you find out?

Chance: So, cameron kirsten was released after serving his original sentence.

Sharon: Oh, no.

Chance: And then he relocated to los angeles.

Sharon: Is he still in L.A.?

Chance: Well, he was arrested there for assaulting his girlfriend.

Nick: That’s his thing. This coward, he goes after women.

Sharon: Same thing he did to me.

Chance: Look at this.

Sharon: That’s his girlfriend?

Chance: Yeah. She looks just like you. I doubt that’s a coincidence.

Nick: Well, do you know where he is now?

Chance: No. He was released six months ago and his whereabouts are unknown.

Nick: Doesn’t he have like a parole officer keeping tabs on him or something?

Chance: I read the report and I’ll admit, it’s kinda sketchy. So, what’s the deal with this guy? I mean, clearly he’s dangerous and outta control. Why don’t you fill me in on what cameron kirsten is capable of?

Cameron: Look, miss, I– I– I don’t wanna crowd you or disturb you or anything like that, but I don’t feel right just leaving you here like this. Are you sure you don’t need medical attention?

Sally: Yeah, I’m– I’m okay. Really. There’s someone else I can call.

[ Sally sighing ]

Adam: Sally?

Sally: Adam, I– I really hate to do this, but can you come get me?

Adam: Um, a– absolutely. What– what’s wrong?

Sally: I– I think I should go see my ob.

Adam: Okay. Um, I’m on my way. Where are you?

Sally: I’m in the park.

Adam: Okay. I– I’ll be there soon and we can get you both looked at, okay? Sally?

Sally: Yeah.

Adam: It’s gonna be okay.

Sally: Right. Yeah. Yeah. It’s– it’s probably nothing.

Adam: Just sit tight.

Cameron: Well, sounds like your hero’s on the way. (Wheezing) deliciously flavored at the turn of a dial, with zero sugar and zero calories. And cirkul has over 40 flavors, so your water can be as unique as you are. Try cirkul, available now at walmart. And now please welcome ana montoya.

Sharon: I met cameron when I was in denver and I made a terrible mistake. Nick and I were together at the time, but our marriage was in trouble. I tried to drown my troubles in alcohol, and cameron took advantage of that. I trusted him and he became violent.

Chance: He assaulted you.

Sharon: I didn’t want nick to find out what cameron had done to me. I was just going through so much at the time. So, I kept quiet and I never went to the police. I just hid out in denver and waited for my wounds to heal. It was a really hard time in my life. I just wanted to forget that it had ever happened, but I didn’t have a choice when cameron showed up in genoa city. You have to realize that when you saw me in denver, I was a different person.

Cameron: Oh, oh yeah? When– when exactly was that? When you were sitting on that bar stool pretty as a picture slamming tequila shots?

Sharon: I was in a very down, a very down time. I was running away from my own life.

Cameron: But now you’re back.

Sharon: And, um, in a way, you– you did me a favor. Beating me to a pulp like that I realized that I needed my family back.

Cameron: I never beat you. We had a lovely time together.

Sharon: All right. You– you– you believe whatever you wanna believe. I know what my face looked like after you were finished with it.

Nick: If I had known what that bastard had done to you.

Sharon: I was too ashamed. I didn’t want you to know. And cameron exploited that. He blackmailed me into meeting him one night. Made my skin crawl every moment that I was with him. But I just, I still kept telling myself that I can handle this myself. I can handle him. Cameron, I’m begging you. Okay? I’m married. I– I have children. Will you please, please just leave me alone.

Cameron: You were married and you had children when I met you in denver, and you still slept with me.

Sharon: No, no. I– I told you why that happened. Look, I– I was drunk. I– I was horribly depressed and my life was a total disaster.

Cameron: You’re the sexiest woman I’ve ever been with.

Sharon: I was out of my mind, damn it! Do you honestly think that if I had known what I was doing, if I had known what kind of man you are, I would let you take me back to that hotel room?

Cameron: You think I’m a monster? Am I a monster? Look, I don’t know why it happened that way in denver, but I know this. It doesn’t have to be that way this time.

Sharon: Oh, meaning this time you won’t beat me up. Now, there’s an offer I can’t refuse.

Cameron: Don’t– don’t– don’t you do that. Don’t get smart with me.

Sharon: Why are you doing this?

Cameron: I want you like I haven’t wanted a woman in a very, very long time.

Sharon: Too bad.

Cameron: Come on, sharon. I can be anything you want me to be. I can be anything you want me to be. I can be gentle. I can be tender. I can be a little rough if that’s what you want. You tell me.

Sharon: You just don’t get it. I want you out of my life.

Cameron: Yeah? Guess what honey? We don’t always get what we want. Where are you going? You’re not going anywhere. Not yet.

Sharon: Get– get– get off of me!

Cameron: I don’t think so. I have waited too long for this.

[ Cameron shushing ] I promise you. I promise you, you’ll like this.

[ Sharon grunting ] Sit down! You wanna play it this way, huh? Huh? Take off your dress. Get that dress off. Do it. Take it off. Take off that dress now! Don’t make me ask you again.

Sharon: I would rather die.

Cameron: You little whore.

[ Both grunting ]

[ Grunting ] Ah, you bitch!

Sharon: I thought he was dead. I thought that I killed him. I hid his body. I tried to just move on with my life. I thought that the nightmare was over, but it was only just the beginning.

Adam: Here you are. I’m glad that you called me.

Sally: Oh, thank you for coming.

Adam: Of course. Of course. You can call me anytime. Always. Um, do you think that you’re okay to walk? The car’s just right over there.

Sally: I’m– I’m so sorry for interrupting your day. Really. I feel so silly. I just, I had double vision and it passed after I sat down for a little bit, so.

Adam: Well, that’s good, but I still think that we should go to the doctor anyway. I don’t think it would hurt to get you checked out, okay?

Sally: Yeah, no, you’re probably right.

[ Sally panting ]

Adam: What is it? Did you forget something?

Sally: No. There was a guy that was really helpful and he wouldn’t leave until I was okay. I don’t know. I was gonna thank him, but I guess he’s gone.

Adam: Well, I’m glad that somebody was here for you, but come on. I really wanna get you outta here and I wanna get you to the doctor.

Lucy: Dad, your tech team is on fire. The things they were creating were– were amazing. I mean, I just can’t wait to see the animation when it’s all finished.

Daniel: I’m glad you were so impressed.

Lucy: Princess louisa is gonna slay.

Lily: [ Laughing ] I mean, she was so enthralled she didn’t wanna leave.

Daniel: Oh, sounds like we have a hit in the making.

Lucy: And to think, I inspired it all.

Daniel: Best muse ever. Hey, uh, listen. Best muse ever, why don’t you head over to the bar and order some of that pie that you’re so obsessed with.

Lucy: At the bar?

Daniel: Yes, at the bar.

Lucy: And then I assume I’m supposed to eat it there too, so that you two can talk?

[ Lily laughing ]

Daniel: Well, that’s a great idea.

Lucy: Subtle. Seriously.

Daniel: Thank you. I try.

Lily and daniel: I have news.

Lily: Okay.

Kyle: Well, my parents aren’t upstairs.

Summer: They’re not out back or in the kitchen either.

Kyle: Guess mom couldn’t wait to get back out in the world. So much of rushing home to celebrate. I guess they were in a hurry too.

Summer: Who can blame them? You know, they must be over the moon. Nobody thought that it would happen this quickly. You too. I’m really happy for you.

Kyle: Yeah. Well, the relief is intense and I imagine it will only get better. But to be honest, I was terrified in certain moments, just like I know you are with phyllis right now, but I promise you, summer, we will find her and we will bring her home.

Summer: You’re so loving thinking about me and my worries right now.

Kyle: Hey, what else would I be thinking about? You know, we’re a team. I love you, summer. You’ve gotta know that.

Summer: I love you too. I gotta go.

Kyle: What? Where?

Summer: I, um, I’ve got an errand that I need to run and since nobody’s here to celebrate anyway–

Kyle: You’re leaving now? Just like that? Looking for a smarter way to mop?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.


Daniel: You go first.

Lily: No, you go first.

Daniel: Okay. Um, well, it’s huge. I mean, chance found proof that mom’s still alive and the charges against diane are being dropped.

Lily: That’s great. That’s amazing. See, wasn’t it worth it coming forward with the news about your mom? You did the right thing and it paid off.

Daniel: It does feel like a big weight’s been lifted.

Lily: So what’s gonna happen to phyllis?

Daniel: I have no idea how things are gonna turn out for her. And I highly doubt that she’s gonna suddenly come out of hiding and face the consequences for what she did.

Lily: Why do you think that?

Daniel: Oh, I don’t know. Maybe ’cause of who she is and what she’s done so far. Honestly, I’m not really sure of anything anymore. Except one thing.

Lily: What?

Daniel: Summer definitely knows where mom is, but she’s not gonna tell me. It’s driving me crazy. You know, thinking that she could be close by somewhere and I can’t see her. I can’t talk to her. I would give anything just to be able to hug her and just tell her that I love her and tell her how much I miss her.

Lily: I’m sorry. I know that’s really hard knowing that she’s close by and you can’t reach her. But listen, no matter what, you set something very important in motion and that’s diane’s freedom. So no matter what happens with your sister, you did the right thing.

Daniel: Summer would disagree, but it was a good thing. It was the right thing. I needed to be reminded of that. What was it you wanted to say?

Lily: Oh, uh, lucy knows that we used to be married.

Daniel: Who told her that?

Lily: I don’t know.

Daniel: Okay. How’d she take the news?

Lily: She was thrilled because she now feels like we’re star-crossed lovers who were destined to be together again.

Nick: If kirsten has a nerve to show his face in this town again after what he did, thinking he could weasel his way back into sharon’s life again–

Sharon: We don’t know that’s the case.

Nick: But he was obsessed with you, sharon, and he clearly still is. He’s deranged. The things he did to you, sharon thought he was dead and gone.

Chance: Meaning what?

Sharon: He made every moment a loving hell for me. He started all of that by haunting me outside of a window, somewhere in the shadows, so I could never get a moment away from my crime or my shame. It’s just all pain. Hold me tight. I was on edge, I was unraveling. And then one day, cameron showed up. He was alive and well. He said that he had been away on some island or something. He was acting as if nothing had ever happened. But this time he didn’t want me, just me. He wanted revenge. He wanted me to suffer.

Nick: He framed sharon for murder, then took her hostage.

Sharon: If it weren’t for nick, I wouldn’t be here right now telling you this. Nick, be careful. You’re gonna kill him.

Cameron: We’re both dead already.

Nick: Just like frank barrett, huh? I got the whole thing on tape. You’re going down, bitch. And this is for frank.

Pilot: Mr. Kirsten, everything all right back there?

Sharon: Nick, we are gonna parachute out of the airplane?

Nick: Babe, this may be our last chance to get out of this alive.

Sharon: God! Have you ever done this before?

Nick: Yeah. A couple times. It’s no sweat. Now listen to me. You jump out of the plane. You count to three, you pull this, all right?

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: Count to three. Pull that.

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: And we’re taking him with us.

Sharon: Nick, I’m so scared.

Nick: Don’t be. We’re gonna be fine. Now, come on. You’re gonna be fine. Count to three and pull. Let’s go. Get down there. Babe, when I open this door, you gotta hang on.

Sharon: Okay.

[ Door opening ]

Nick: I don’t care if you do it or not, but in three seconds, you might wanna pull that cord. Come on, babe. You turn. Come on. You can do this. You can do this. I love you. In three seconds, pull it.

Sharon: Okay.

Nick: Three seconds, okay?

Sharon: Okay.

Cameron: You are so sure that you’ve won.

Nick: We have won. Look at you. You’re pathetic and you’re gonna wish you were dead when all this is over.

Cameron: Then, you better kill me now, slick, ’cause if I walk outta here, you are dead.

Sharon: It was supposed to be over then. He was arrested, convicted.

Nick: He still needs to be in a cell.

Chance: Well, unfortunately that’s not the case.

Nick: But you understand what we’re dealing with.

Sharon: He’s relentless, vicious, and I will never let him terrorize me like that again.

Summer: I’m sorry, kyle. I– I’ll be back soon and we’ll all toast to your mom and her freedom. I– I promise you. It’s just– I– I have some things that I need to check on at the office.

Kyle: Now? Can’t you make a few calls and handle it from here?

Summer: I won’t be long. Please understand, okay? I’m not gonna be long. Ladies…

[ Sally sighing ]

Adam: Oh, false alarm. Just like we hoped. You and the baby are gonna be just fine.

Sally: It’s not that simple.

Adam: No, I know. You’re right. But your new medication is gonna be delivered soon. The doc is taking care of things. You’re gonna take the meds, you’re gonna ease up on stress and anxiety. And like she said, smaller, more frequent meals, okay? This is very doable. We got this. Look, everything is going to be alright.

Sally: You can’t be sure of that. I’ve been so careful. I have done everything that the doctor said. I’ve been eating well, I’ve been getting sleep, I’ve been taking my vitamins. How can I be at risk for preeclampsia when I’ve been doing all the right things?

Adam: I don’t know. It’s– it’s one of life’s mysteries. But now we know, so we’re gonna follow the doctor’s orders.

Sally: Yeah, but it’s not we. It’s me.

[ Voice breaks ] And I did something wrong.

Adam: No, you did something very right. That is why you called your ob exactly when you needed to.

[ Sally sniffling ]

Sally: Chloe and i really need to dive in to this assignment for chancellor-winters. Taking it easy is not on the agenda right now.

Adam: I’m sure that chloe would love the chance to shine. I mean, this could be her chance to show everybody how brilliantly talented she is. Why not ease up on the work and let her do more of it? I know that she could dazzle chancellor-winters. She could knock their socks off if she had the chance.

Sally: You really think so?

Adam: As a friend and a colleague, let her show what she’s got. Just– just delegate. That’ll give you more time to rest.

Sally: Since when did you become so calm and reasonable?

Kyle: Summer.

Summer: Kyle. What are you doing here? Did you follow me?

Kyle: Actually, I did. But only because you left the house without your tablet. I figured you would need it since you were going to the office, but I was surprised when you didn’t go to marchetti. What are you doing here?

Chance: I’m sorry to make you go through all that again. This guy is clearly a dirt bag. I appreciate you sharing that with me.

Nick: What good is it gonna do? You can’t do anything until this guy crosses the line and he knows that. He’s smart. He hasn’t made his way to genoa city, but I’m sure it’s on the agenda.

Chance: Look, I– I get it’s frustrating, but know the guy’s on my radar now, all right? He is a known perp contacting a former victim. That’s a dangerous combination. So, here’s what I think we do. If you guys get any more mysterious messages, keep sending them to me. I’m gonna see if I can find out where he’s been since he got outta L.A.

Nick: I do not want this guy anywhere near sharon or the girls.

Chance: I understand that. One step at a time, brother, okay?

Sharon: Thank you, chance. Just find out where cameron is and what he’s up to. We’ll decide what to do from there. (Bridget) with thyroid eye disease

Summer: I– I just came here to pick up a spa gift certificate for diane.

Kyle: That’s thoughtful of you, but you could have told me about it.

Summer: I know. I know. It’s just, you know, I’m feeling my way here ’cause things have been so ugly and difficult.

Kyle: Yeah, it has been for everyone. And I appreciate you doing everything you can to try to get past what’s happened. Well, I guess I better get back to the house in case my parents have gone back. Um, don’t forget your tablet for the office.

Summer: Kyle, wait. Hey, we can both go home together.

Kyle: You sure? What about the gift card and the office?

Summer: Well, I can get the gift card online and the office, it can wait ’til tomorrow. I would much rather be with you right now.

Kyle: Well, I’d much rather be with you too.

Summer: Hey, why don’t we pick up some bubbly on the way home so we can celebrate with your folks. And some balloons. Think that harrison might like that?

Kyle: Oh, champagne for the grownups, a balloon for the boy. Now, it’s a party. Come on.

Daniel: Yeah. I really wish you didn’t have to leave so soon.

Lucy: Yeah, I know. I’m meeting mom back in savannah. We have a few parties and some friends we’re meeting up with. I’ve missed them a lot.

Lily: Aw, I’m sure they miss you too. So, back to europe?

Lucy: Yeah. Mom’s got work to go back to. The blue suit gang.

Lily: Ah, the blue suit gang.

[ Lily and lucy laughing ]

Daniel: I’m sorry, the who?

Lucy: Inside joke.

Lily: Yeah, we have those now.

Adam: Me? Calm and reasonable? Hm.

Sally: It’s pretty shocking, huh?

[ Adam laughing ]

Adam: Uh, well if I’m acting that way, it’s only ’cause I’m– I’m putting you and the baby first. And in order to do that, I have to be calm and reasonable, no matter how much it goes against my nature

Sally: And boy, does it ever. But just so you know, I– I really appreciate it.

Adam: Can I tell you something?

Sally: Sure.

Adam: I’m just glad that– that you called me instead of nick. Oh, you– you– you did call nick, didn’t you? You– you– you called him first. Okay. I mean that makes sense. I get it. Um, I’m fine with that.

Sally: Really?

Adam: Really. Really. Uh, but you need to get your rest, so, um, I can, uh, I can stay or I can go. It’s your call.

Sally: Um, actually I would really appreciate it if you stayed. Maybe just for a little longer.

Sharon: Chance will have an update on cameron’s whereabouts as soon as he can.

Nick: Not if cameron doesn’t wanna be found.

Sharon: He’s screaming for attention. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have sent me the champagne and the postcard and the cigar box. Maybe that’s all it will be. Some creepy deliveries. He’s already been in prison twice before. Is he really gonna risk a third?

Nick: Who knows what he’s gonna do? He’s incapable of rational thought. Seriously, what is to stop him from making his way back to genoa city again?

Faith: Oh, my gosh. I’m so sorry. I wasn’t paying attention to where I was going.

Cameron: No problem at all.

what’s in the box? Is it ticking? Digital detonators don’T. Yikes. I was just kidding. Even still, it is…light. Spencer, after everything we’ve been through with your uncle, you don’t need to open that. Mom, please. Call diane. Make the deal and testify against sonny. Josslyn, I don’t know how much of the conversation you heard — oh, my god. I heard enough. It’s a no-brainer. You don’t belong in prison. But sonny does. No, it’s just — I just wish you were here. You should be here, you know, with your daughter. Sonny, it’s very kind of you to say that. It’s true. Well, don’t worry. I’m not giving up. I’m gonna do whatever it takes to be with the people I love.

[ Breathing heavily ] I’m so gonna get fired! It’s not that bad. No, no, no, no. A-a-and on my first day. I — just — just take a breath. Take a breath.

[ Breathing heavily ] What is going on? Thank you. I’ll go get your lab results.

[ Elevator bell dings ] Taggert: Trina? Dna results? For trina? Trina decided that she wanted to know who her biological father was, so she had her dna tested against marcus’… and curtis’. And now the results are in. Marshall: What y’all waiting on? Get your butts over there to the hospital. Go ahead and be with trina. Come on. You’re right. I should get going. Sorry about dinner, dad. Oh, don’t worry about dinner. I’ll save you a bowl. Don’t worry about it. Just go. I can’t believe it. In minutes, I’ll find out if I’m gonna be a father.

Thanks for getting here so fast.You call and I come. That’s the way it is, and that’s the way it’s always gonna be. And besides, I wanted to have a little you and me time. Well, I only called curtis a few minutes ago, and the nurse just went to get the dna test results, so we should be good. How are you feeling?

[ Sighs ] I’m all over the place. Relieved that the wait is over. Terrified that the results won’t be what I was hoping. I hear that. Mostly, I’m worried about the future. I know we said nothing was gonna change — nothing is gonna change. Not between us. Yeah, I want — I want to believe that, but… it happens all the time. People think nothing’s gonna change, and then in a heartbeat, everything’s different. That’s people, not us. That’s what I keep telling myself, too. But it’s just not realistic. And the truth is, those results could change everything. Curtis, I just want you to know, no matter what those results say, we all love you, and we’re here for you. A-and your father and i would be happy to come with you if — if you want the support. Thank you, aunt stella. I appreciate it. Portia and i will be fine. Oh, I-I don’t think that trina would want me there. She’s your daughter. This is a potentially life-changing day for her. And whose fault is that? Trina called you. She didn’t call me. I-I think that speaks for itself, so I — portia, I know the two of you have some things you need to work through. But one day, trust me, she’s gonna look back and she’s gonna be glad her mama was there for her. Okay. And if — if either of you need anything — stella, stella, we’re gonna be here holding down the fort, just a phone call away.

[ Door closes ] Yes, sonny hurt me. He hurt all of us. And I’m not saying we forgive and we forget, but we move past it. We move on. What I won’t do, what I definitely won’t do is have someone else pay for my mistakes. I’m sorry to interrupt. Uh, I got to — I got to be somewhere. Can you tell willow that I’ll see her tomorrow? Will do. Alright. You gonna go see nina? Uh, yeah. Take care of yourself. See, he’s, uh — he’s still choosing nina over his own family. Okay. You know what? It’s his fiancéE. Mom, if you don’t make this deal and you actually go to prison, he gets donna full-time with nina. Why are you sacrificing yourself for him after everything he’s done? Alright, josslyn, josslyn, enough. This is mom’s choice, okay? We have to respect that. Oh, and you’d know all about making choices that hurt innocent people, wouldn’t you? I’m so sorry. I-I-I so screwed up. It’s hardly a disaster. Can one of you please tell me what’s going on? This is all my fau– not you. I-I just got like 5 million text messages in the last half-hour. What happened, and — and why are you here? I’m here because I was made aware of a minor snafu, and I thought I might be able to help put out some fires. Fires? Plural? It — it seems esme, uh, inadvertently forwarded an e-mail from a source to the global address book.

[ Gasps ] Opening us up to being scooped? Making our source vulnerable? It — it — it — it was an accident. I thought I was just gonna be answering phones. I’m trying to do everything that’s expected of me, but all I can think about is how ace is staying with people who are trying to take him from me, and I — as you can see, esme was already pretty frazzled by the time that e-mail came in. How bad is it? I worked with the staff to blunt the damage. Now everything’s handled. It’s all fine. Really. Really? Really? Really. Esme. I need to be able to count on you to handle sensitive information responsibly. Mm-hmm. But it’s your first day, so I’m going to trust that you can and that you will learn from your mistakes. Wait, so I’m not fired? Not today. But you never know what tomorrow will bring. Clock out. Clock out! Yes. Thank you. I’m so sorry. I promise you won’t regret this. Um, at least not more than you already do. Um… think she’ll show tomorrow? I’m calling a temp agency. I feel like I should at least know what it is. Everyone else’s gifts were innocuous enough. Ava: Open it or don’t, spencer. But whatever it is, don’t keep it. It’s up to you.

[ Knock on door ] Anna, you made it. Please. Hi. Yes. Come on in.Sorry. I got held up at G.H. That’s alright. Uh, this is victor’s executor. Anna devane. Jb brown, esquire. Oh, mr. Brown. Yes. I saw your name on the invitation to this — whatever — get-together. Do I even want to know what I missed? Uh, victor has found a way to be present from beyond the grave. Please take a seat. Thank you. Hi. I’ll open this later. Let’S…get this over with. Mr. Brown: Shall we continue? Please.

[ Computer beeps ]

And now for my other nephew, nikolas cassadine.

Victor: Or should I say…

Was nikolas invited to this? Does victor know where my son is?

…Prince nikolas mikhail stavrosovich cassadine. I’ll never forget how you came to my aid when I needed you. While your family mourned your death, we helped each other build new lives. Sadly, hard times have finally caught up with you. But when the going gets tough, you need a — a home away from home. I trust spencer will take good care of my gift to you until you return.

[ Computer beeps ]

[ Computer beeps ]

I’ve left perhaps the greatest gift of all to my formidable opponent, special agent anna devane. Oh, my dear anna, we’ve both been in this business long enough to know that eventually, our sins catch up with us. So I leave you… the truth. So, you think everything’s gonna change? Why? The only way nothing’s gonna change is if that test says you’re my biological father. And if not, I’m still your father. You’re still my daughter. I mean, there’s no test gonna tell us how we feel about each other. It’s not about what the test says. It’s about what blood says. I know we’re not gonna stop loving each other, but we’re both gonna have to live with the fact that I have another father, one who I’ve missed out on 20 years of getting to know. Oh. So, um, do you regret spending all of that time with me instead? Of course not. Then what’s the problem? If it turns out that curtis and I… I’m concerned the more I get to know curtis and his relatives and the closer I get with them… …the more I’ll hurt you. Okay. Can you explain to me what really happened with that e-mail that she sent to the entire planet? And — and what are we gonna do about the fallout? How did you manage that?

[ Sighs ] The editors were divided about the best way to handle the leak. So while the staff tried to reach you, and they did try… I was at my genocidal uncle’s will reading. I couldn’t take any calls. …I have had some experience with sources in the past. Fortunately, this one was communicating to us through an anonymous e-mail account, so… and we refused comment to anyone who called to follow up and, uh, legal watchdogged everything to ensure there was minimal damage to the invader. All in all, great way to spend an evening.

[ Sighs ] I appreciate that you came in to handle it. My pleasure. I must admit that I’m a little surprised to see you, in that you’ve been ghosting me. It’s very kind of you to come keep me company. Well, I thought that you would be, you know, worrying about willow, so here I am. Thank you. Yeah, I am. But I just keep thinking, if I stay away now, then I might be able to get her back later. But I don’t want to talk about this subject anymore. I want to talk about something happier. What do you have in mind? I do have something in mind, and that’s a little bit of a clue. I think I know what this is about. Yeah, so I have some ideas about our wedding, and I’d love to share them with you. Well, I’d be happy to look at them. I know you don’t really care about that. Well — grooms usually don’t care about things like this. You know what I care about? Spending my life with you. And knowing you care about that… is what keeps me going. What the hell is going on? Why don’t you go ahead and tell her, michael? Look, mom’s got enough on her plate right now that we can figure this out on our own, okay? Or you could just tell me.

[ Cellphone rings ] It’s pilar. I have to take this. If this isn’t over when I come back, I want to know. Look, josslyn, you can be as pissed off at me as you want. Oh, well, thank you, but I don’t need your permission. And I don’t want to be mad at you. But you — I know what I did. I’m just saying leave mom out of it. She’s got enough to worry about. She doesn’t need to be taking on anything else right now. Michael, I don’t want to drag mom into what you’re doing to dex, either. You know, maybe it’s a good thing you didn’t turn sonny in.

I’m sorry about going radio silent. I thought about reaching out, many times, actually. Why didn’t you?

[ Sighs ] When I was diagnosed with als, I-I — all I could think about was not wanting to be a burden to anyone. Even though you urged me to tell the truth, by telling you, I felt like I had dumped this massive burden on you. And then when I didn’t hear from you, I assumed I was right about that — that I scared you off. That is, until I got that last text message you sent. Gregory, the reason I didn’t contact you is because I was a-afraid that you would think I was disregarding your boundaries. And then I-I talked to my daughter. I didn’t tell her anything. No details. I — but she told me there’s a big difference between inserting yourself into someone’s life when you’re not wanted and — and just simply reaching out to let you know that I’m thinking about you. I convinced myself that I could go it alone. But then your text helped me realize I was wrong about that. And how much I need a friend. Eat this gumbo before it get cold.

[ Sighs ] I can’t even think about food right now. Don’t think. Just eat. As we speak, curtis, portia, and trina are going through something momentous, and they need the support of their family. We are supporting them, stella. W-w-we’re supporting them by giving them the room they need to deal with this issue, regardless of what happens. Then — then they gonna come back to us. Come to you. Curtis might come to you, but [Scoffs] My nephew wants nothing to do with me. He’s still upset that I ran away from his wedding. Ah, you may have — you may have run and hid, but at least you came back. Took you long enough. And here you are, letting my gumbo get cold. I-I appreciate what you’re trying to do. And I know you think curtis will forgive me. But I wasn’t there for him when he needed me the most. And I’m just afraid that I’ve — I’ve lost him forever. When I look at you, I see that little baby I used to hold in my hands and sing to sleep at night. I see that girl who demanded I take her training wheels off her bike and the same little girl whose skinned knee I was patching up when she crashed not even moments later.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] When I look at, um, you, I see your whole life. The good, the bad. I see parts of your life that I wasn’t even a part of. Because you’re gonna be here. ‘Cause you’re always gonna be a part of my life, and I’m always gonna be a part of yours. So if, um — whew. Um… if you end up being another — part of another family, it doesn’t mean you’re not mine. Oh, come here. Anna: Alright, so that’s it? Victor wanted to taunt me one last time? Are we finished? Not quite.

[ Computer beeps ] Victor: Finally, to our illustrious mayor, laura collins. Oh, my dear, dear laura. If you’re watching this, it means you’ve won. You are the sole survivor of the great game we began all those decades ago. So I leave you… to live the rest of your life in peace with my respect and admiration, knowing that you were indeed a worthy adversary. Congratulations.

[ Computer beeps ] That concludes the reading of victor cassadine’s last will and testament. I leave you to your grief.

[ Coughs ] Thank you for everything, mr. Brown, and thank you again for coming to the apartment. I appreciate that a lot.

[ Sighs ] I’ll get the door for you. Bye-bye. So… so, spencer, what’s in the envelope? Oh, this? Yeah. This is a, uh… private family matter, and you’re no longer — spencer, I’d like to know what’s in it, too. Okay.

[ Clears throat ]

[ Sighs ] Well, it’s in russian. So, anybody? I think anna can speak russian. Anna. What?Can you read russian? Uh, yeah, a little. Why? Okay. Let me see. Oh, I-I don’t know. It’s like a deed to a property. Uh, right here — right here’s the address. See? I mean, I-I can’t — sorry, I — sorry I can’t be of much more help. Thank you, anna. Uh, could i get you something? I mean, I think we could all use a stiff drink at this point. I’m sorry, no, I — I have to get going, really. So, what do you think this, um, is about? This truth that you’ve inherited? Oh, I don’t know. It’s just a mind game, really, isn’t it? Victor’s attempt to get me to obsess about something, drive me to distraction? Whatever. Oh. That old song. I know it well. I’m not worried about it. Still, I don’t think any of us should take a gift from victor at face value, right? Yes, we know better. Yeah. Mm-hmm. Excuse me. Thank you. Thank you for coming. Oh, thank you, laura. Yeah. Bye. Take it easy, now. Yes. Okay, so why would victor leave nikolas property? Look, mom has to defend herself against the insider trading charges. And now that you’ve left dex hanging out to dry, she can. Look, joss, nothing is official. We don’t even know if the justice department is even going to make her an offer. Well, why does she have to wait? She can bring the offer to them. She could save herself and drew. Once, you know, you give her the smoking gun. Oh, come on, joss, you don’t mean — yes, I do mean the recording that dex risked his life to make. The one that makes sure sonny goes to prison for the rest of his life.

I’d like to set the date far enough away to give willow a chance to recover, just in case she wants to go. I know it’s a long shot. Whatever you want, we will do. Uh, that’s — I’ll be right back. Yeah? Oh. Hi. Anna, good to see you. Yeah. Nice to see you. You, too. I know you just got back from answering questions about greenland. We — we need to catch up. Yeah, I would like that. I’m sorry. I just — I have to do this. Oh. Oh, okay. You — you risked your life to save my aunt so she could save my daughter. And for that, I will be grateful to you forever. It — it was nothing. That’s — anna, it was everything. I had my reasons for not wanting to use that footage against sonny. Mm-hmm, and how do those reasons compare to our mother going to prison? Something that you have the power to stop. Give the video to mom and tell her to take it to the feds. Guys, look who I found. Tj: I was just coming to find you. I have an update about willow. Well, is the transplant finished? I looked up the address. It’s in chechnya.

[ Sighs ] Well, the cassadines are originally from russia, so maybe it’s an old home of theirs?

[ Sighs ] Is the will reading over? We just finished. Okay. What is this doing here? This is ace’s favorite blanket. Why — why doesn’t he have it? Where is he? He’s asleep, esme. You put him down without his blankie? God, I can’t leave him alone for a second. Can you believe her? You know, she just got ace back, and then she had to leave him again for work. Uh, it’s just hard on a mother. Anyway, victor said that nikolas had helped him. And we know that nikolas gave him shelter, and then victor returned that favor. Well, I got wyndemere in the divorce, so maybe victor is using this as a replacement? In chechnya? Well, it would guarantee I wouldn’t visit. I don’t know. He said, “when the going gets tough, you need a home away from home.” What are you thinking? I’m wondering if this is where nikolas has gone to hide. We’re still waiting. I hope it’s okay that — that I’m here. I can leave if you want. No, no, you — you should stay. I’m sorry. I should have — I should have called you. It’s okay. I was with curtis when you called. I know. I moved my things back in tonight. So have you two worked things out? One day at a time. Miss robinson. Here you are. Thank you. I guess it’s now or never.

It says that curtis is my biological father. Hey, you know what? Um, it’s okay, baby. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s okay. I wanted to know the truth. And now I do. But, um, I want to make one thing clear. I care about you, curtis. I do. And I know we’re gonna need to figure out where we go from here. Whatever our relationship is, whatever — wherever it goes from here… …I just need you to know that I’m not looking for a replacement father. And I hope that you can accept that. Stella, you raised him to be loving and — and trusting and to have faith in his opinions and to hold himself and others to high standards. But you know what else you did? You raised him to be forgiving. As upset as he was with portia, he still decided to move back in here so he could work on his marriage. And it was her secret that you were holding. You were also holding my secret. Now, if he could forgive me and portia, he definitely can forgive you. You really think so? Oh, shoot, girl, I know so. Thank you for admitting that you need a friend. I need a friend. And I’m glad for friends. It’s mutual. And I promise that I’ll follow your lead regarding your illness. And I hope that you’ll just let me be a part of it while you’re going through it. Deal. Deal.

[ Chuckles ] Awesome. Thank you. And also thank you for stepping in to handle esmegate.

[ Scoffs ] It’s nice to feel useful. You miss it. Of course I do. Oh. I was expecting a little pushback, but go on. I-I really enjoyed volunteering here. Yeah, it was exciting and — and gave me some purpose. I missed it. And…you. Can I make an observation? Has my objection ever stopped you?

[ Chuckles ] I know you wanted this job, and you didn’t take it because you didn’t want people to know you were sick. Because if they did, they would think you wouldn’t be able to handle it. Tell me if I’m wrong. If victor had nikolas safely tucked away in chechnya, why mention it here? But if nikolas was aware of the place already, maybe he went there without victor knowing. Ace is sleeping soundly, with his blanket. If you’ll excuse me, grandmother. Esme, sit down. Um, no, thank you. I’ve been sitting all day, and it wasn’t exactly a very good day to begin with, so… okay. Whatever it is, please just tell me. We might know where nikolas is. W-where? Is he in port charles? No. No, no, not in port charles. But if this information is what I think it is, then it’s possible that nikolas is holed up in some remote part of chechnya. Or not. Laura, there’s no proof at all that he’s there. But it’s the best lead we’ve got. I mean, maybe we can find him and finally bring him home. Yes, willow’s bone marrow transplant is complete. Oh.

[ Laughs ] Thank god. So, uh — so what are the next steps? So, willow will remain in the hospital to give the donated bone marrow cells time to create new cells in her body. Now, that process is called engraftment, and it can take some time. How long? Every patient is unique. Sometimes as little as two weeks. On the outside, maybe six or more. Now, once engraftment has occurred, willow can go home, but we’ll still want to track her recovery in case complications arise. What kind of complications? Willow’s body is essentially rebuilding its immune system, so she’ll be highly susceptible to infection. We want to monitor that. Another possible major complication is graft-versus-host disease, which is when the patient’s body rejects the donated cells. Wow. That’s — that’s a lot to take in. Try not to worry. Willow is getting excellent care, and we’re optimistic that she’ll make a full recovery. Okay. How is willow? Receiving her bone marrow transplant thanks — thanks to you. I’m happy to hear that. You okay? Probably not. Agent anna devane. Anna: Yes. Can I help you? You…are under arrest.

I understand how you feel, laura. And even though things ended badly between us, I want nikolas back with his family. But you can’t go on some wild goose chase to chechnya. It’s dangerous. I’ve been worse places. You know that nikolas has managed to vanish more than once before. He would hide someplace where nobody would think to look, not on some old family property, right? I just don’t want you to set yourself up to be disappointed or shocked. Well, I appreciate that, ava, but, uh, I can’t just sit around here wondering, you know? I have to see for myself. If there’s even a chance that I can find nikolas, I have to take it. The doves I was gonna give to trina. Uncle victor saved them for me. But why? It’s true. I was afraid to take you up on the editorial board position. I didn’t want anyone to find out I was sick. Well, I didn’t tell anyone, and I’m not gonna tell anyone, so we’re over that hurdle. And…

[ Sighs ] …I wasn’t sure I was up to the job. Are you kidding me? You just proved to me and to the entire staff that you are more than capable of — of getting in the thick of things. And more importantly, you proved it to yourself. So… is that position on the board still open? It’s funny you should ask, because as luck would have it, I never got around to filling it. You know curtis means everything to me. I do. Thank you for being there for my sons when I couldn’t be. And I want to thank you for stepping up… when I wasn’t strong enough to face curtis myself. That’s what a family does. We help each other out. Yeah. When we’re at our best. And when we’re at our worst. That’s when we need the most help, right? Yeah. What I need right now is some of your gumbo. Ooh.

[ Laughs ] ‘Cause I’m hungry and it smells good. You ain’t said nothing there! Let’s partake. Let’S… why don’t you say it, stella? Come on. Oh, dear lord, thank you for our family. I understand. And I want you to know the last thing I would ever try to do is take your father’s place. I care about you a lot, trina, okay? So from here on out, I’ll just take your lead. I appreciate that. You could, um, do worse, having two dads. Especially one as good of a man as curtis. So, um, I’m — I’m just gonna leave you guys to — to work this out, okay?

[ Crying ] Okay, wait…

[ Elevator bell dings ]

[ Crying ] Tj, thank you so much. I’m just happy to finally deliver some good news. Uh, can I — can I see her? Of course. And if you need anything, let me know. Thank you. Thank you. Did you hear that? Yeah. Full recovery.

[ Laughs ] We have to be, you know, still careful, but — we will. We will. We’re gonna follow all the guidelines. And at the end of it, willow is gonna be okay. So whatever’s going on between you guys, just end it, okay? Because nothing’s more important than being here for each other as a family. You’re absolutely right, mom. We’re — we’re gonna do what’s best for the family. Right, michael? Anna: What is this about? I can’t say more until we’re in a secure location. Well, I have a right to know why I’m being arrested. Or I’m not going with you until I find out. I’m sure you’ve clocked the agents in position in this room. Yeah. I expect there’s a lot more of them stationed around the hotel to prevent any escape. And all of this is for me? I’m flattered. It would be best if you came voluntarily. But if not, we can do this the hard way. Anna, you want me to call diane for you? No. Thanks, I’m good. Well, I look forward to finding out whatever the truth is. You have the right to remain silent — I know my rights. Then by all means. .

I brought you some painkillers. Oh, thanks. I’m fine.

How’s Mayor Carver? He’s still in the hospital. He’s recovering from surgery and it looks like he’ll be okay. Thank God. Please, Colin will be charged with murder. Now

you bitch, you’re doing. I beg your pardon? I’m sorry. I, I know you’re pulling a price

and I thought. Waiting for the doctors to finish. Operating was bad. Sitting here seeing you like this.

Come on, Abraham. You’ve been outta surgery for hours now. Biggest time that you opened those big, beautiful eyes and came back to us. Can you do that for my love? Please

wake up. Well, you heard what Taylor said, mama. He suffered a serious head trauma and then there was a long surgery. His body needs time to recover. He should come around soon. Oh damn. Colored Bedford. Whacking my sweetheart in the head like that. Oh, that son of a bitch is pure evil. Yeah. Told you too. She played a big part in this.

Oh. Oh, you don Oh, I can’t take it anymore. I’m gonna, I’m gonna go have to find, okay. I’ll stay here with you. Okay. Thanks baby.

Nicole. Hey, why haven’t you called me? You said you got the swab right? That’s in my hand as we speak. Can you meet me at the park in an hour? That, um, little area near the rec center. I’ll be there. And Sloan, I, I’m. I am really grateful that you got the sample from Eric. Yeah, well, like I said, I have a vested interest.

I’m just hoping to hell. His DNA is not a match for that baby you’re carrying.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Nicole, Anna. Hi. So how did it go last night? Were you able to get a, a DNA sample from each a. Unfortunately, no. No, but that sleeping pill should have knocked him out like a light. I, I’m sure it would’ve if he had taken it, but he got called away on business before he could. Oh no. Darn it. Well, when do you expect him back?

I don’t know, but, uh, it doesn’t matter. What are you talking about? How will you get a sample now? I don’t have to. Sloane did she got one from Eric last night.

Oh, that was fast. Helps when you know the owner, I got us an egg sandwich with cheese and a black coffee for you. Ah, that’s so sweet of you. Yeah. Do you mind if I just take it to go though? I kind of wanna get to the hospital and check on Colin. Yeah. Well, you need to take a test first, right? Test. Yeah. The virus outbreak that you and Nicole went on and on about, on the 10th floor.

Remember you even said you had to prove it to the hospital that you weren’t carrying the virus before they let you visit. Oh, right. Actually, I just called the hospital. They said apparently, I don’t know, they contained the virus. So I don’t have to take the test today. Great. Truth is you never had to take a test, did you?

So you think I’m pulling a price? Huh? What? Do all black women look alike to you? No. No, no. I just, I only seen you from the back and a little on edge, as you can imagine. Yeah. On edge and nasty and rude here. This is some medicine to ease your pain. Although you don’t really deserve it, do you for all the pain that you caused our beloved mayor, no full story.

All right. Uh, maybe I should just ask to assign another nurse. Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Mr. Bedford, I am your nurse whether you like it or not, and I will do my professional best to heal your body, but you are gonna have to heal your own soul. You hear me? Young man, it’s gonna take prayer and, and humility and repenting for your sins and.

If you believe this with your whole heart, maybe the good Lord will see fit to allow you entry into the kingdom of heaven.

You’re seriously worried about that monster at a time like this. Have you forgotten where you are and what you did to aid? And I bet that son of a bitch, the only person that you need to worry about right now is Talia. Look, okay. I know this is bad, okay? But I mean, this is my first defense. They can’t go that hard on me.

Right? Wrong. I just had a visit with Da Trask and she intends to throw the fuck at you. Wait, what? You can’t be surprised. She was one of your victims. She ended up in the hospital thanks to your poisoned biscuits. She could have died, although as as tragic as I would’ve been. I mean, that would’ve been better for you because now you have a pissed off.

A very pissed off district attorney who is gunning for you. Love you. Why Talia? What the hell were you thinking?

You don’t deserve to be lying in this bed. You wouldn’t be If I hadn’t gotten involved in Nathan Bedford all those years ago. Everyone keeps saying that it, it isn’t my fault that he was in a position of power and he, he took advantage of me, but I can’t help feeling responsible for what happened to you.

Colin wanted Mama and me to pay, and now you’re stuck suffering the consequences. And for that I am so, so sorry.

Oh my God.

Oh, oh, I got you. You’re awake. I I wait until I’m gonna get back. Actually, I’m gonna, I’m gonna text her. I’m gonna text her right now. Where,

where am I? Oh, um, you’re, you’re in the hospital. Do you remember what happened?

Well, um, you were attacked, you were hit over the head and then you had to get brain surgery, but now you’re awake and you’re gonna be okay. Thank God. Thank God.

Who are you?

Colin Bedford. I’m Commissioner Hernandez. As you know, you’re under arrest. I just wanted you to know that you’re gonna be facing a long list of charges. Attempted murder, kidnapping, false imprisonment. Is that it? Well, I’ve probably forgotten about a few, but, uh, well, there’s plenty of time for that. In fact, your doctors tell me that you’re all enough to be discharged.

So I got a detail on its way down here to take you to the station. Well, you’ll be booked, officially charged, and then, uh, taken to a holding cell. What about Talia? What about Talia? Anyone should be charged with attempted murder.

Help me understand this. Okay. You graduated at the top of your med school class. You had your pick of residencies all across the country. You were on track to star what was sure to be an amazing career. But instead you, you threw that all away. To what? To come to Salem. To what? To terrorize two people that you didn’t even know.

I didn’t terrorize them then, what would you call it, Talia, you trash polling in’s office. You, you tried to ruin Chanel’s business by poisoning half the town. People were seriously hurt because of you. Okay. I get it. Okay. I feel bad enough as it is. I get it.

Oh, I don’t think that you do, and I wasn’t kidding earlier. You are incredibly lucky that no one suffered permanent damage or worse. Why Talia? Why in God’s name would you wanna hurt so many people that you don’t even know? I mean, especially Paul and Chanel. I did it for Colin, but that’s what I don’t understand.

What kinda spell did the sick bastard have you under? Why would you do it? What would make you do this?

Sloan got a DNA sample from Eric. You mean that woman that Eric has been seeing? Yes, she found out that I was pregnant through an unhappy accident, although maybe not so unhappy because she agreed to help me get the samples for the paternity test, and she got a swab from Eric last night. Okay. Well that’s good, but don’t you need to get a swab from EJ as well?

Well, only if this was a legal case and hopefully it will never go there. But Kayla said she only needs one sample for comparison. And if she does have a swab from Eric and the d n A doesn’t match, then, then the baby must be ejs.

Listen, I, I have to go, I’m, I’m meeting Sloan at the park and she’s gonna give me the swab. Okay. Okay. But Nicole, there is one thing I’ve been meaning to ask you. Okay. What is it, Anna? Well, I know I did ask you before if, if you wanted this baby to be Eric’s and you didn’t answer me, so, um, maybe if I ask you a different question, if you find out that this baby is Eric’s, what does that mean for you and ej?

Honestly, I, I’ve been so stressed out about who this baby belongs to. I, I haven’t even thought about it. Well, I can only assume he will be fairly upset. Yeah. Especially since he just told me he loves me. He did right after he proposed,

Eric, what are you talking about? Why wouldn’t I have to take a test? I talked to my mother. I was checking on Abe to see how he was doing or if I could visit him today. Or if the hospital still had restrictions on visitors because of the virus. She had no idea what I was talking about. Okay. Well, maybe she just wasn’t aware.

I mean, Eric, your mother’s been slow. Stop. I know you were lying. You lied to me yesterday. You and Nicole didn’t have to take some test for some non-existent virus. What was that test for?

You’re clearly keeping something from me. I want to know what you gonna call are up to, and you’re gonna tell me right now.

Okay, fine. We are keeping something from you

close pregnant.

Pregnant? Yes.

When were you gonna tell me? She begged me not to.

She’s not sure. She doesn’t even know when she conceived. She doesn’t know if it was. With EJ or the night the two of you got high on those biscuits,

that explains the swab.


I just don’t understand. How did you get involved in this?

I found out Nicole was pregnant because she dropped her prenatal vitamins in front of me, and then I just happened to run into her again after Kayla had given her a paternity test kit. Yeah, she didn’t know how she was gonna get the DNA n a samples from you or EJ without one of you knowing. So I told her I could get one from you, which I did.

BJ proposed. When did this happen? Why didn’t you tell me? Well, because I turned him down. I, I didn’t feel like it was a sincere proposal. Not sincere. Let’s just say EJ started caving to peer pressure. We found out that Stephan. Proposed to Gabby. So EJ started to get worried and soon they would be a couple and it would look like that Stefan had the advantage and you know, more people in the rinks, so to speak.

So EJ thought if he proposed to me, there would be another dememer on his side. At least that’s how I saw it. And you told him that’s how you saw it? Oh yes. I was very blunt. Yeah. Well, I can’t imagine that he reacted well to that.

Actually, that’s when he told me he loved me. Oh, I almost forgot that part. That very important part. So how did you react to that? Do you love ej? Nicole? Look, I told you why I did it. Colin convinced me of how awful Paulina and Chante were and that justified C committed crimes against them because that sick bastard decided that they needed to be punished.

Look, it’s not like I said yes right away. I was against it at first.

But then I saw how much it meant to him, and he said If I truly loved him, then I would do whatever he wanted. Dear God, look, I was afraid of losing him, so you did whatever this guy said because you were afraid that he would leave you. I was in love, Gina. Okay, and when you’re in love, I don’t know. You, you do things that make that person happy, not illegal.

Criminal cruel things. Talia, you’re smarter than that. You are a better person than that. Yeah. Well, apparently not. Jayna. I tried, I I tried to talk him out of it. I swear I did, I promise. But every single time I tried to convince him that what we were doing were wrong and that Paulina and Chanel were actually cut decent people.

I don’t know. He, he would just get mad and I would, I would just drop him. What do you mean? He would get mad. He had a temper and he would accuse me of not caring enough of being a coward. Did he ever get violent with you? Talia? Did he ever hurt you? Answer me, Talia.

That double crossing bitch pushed me off the very Oh, that’s lovely. Double crossing, bitch. That’s how you describe your girlfriend. Huh? I would, just so you know, she’s also been arrested for her. Pardon? Your crimes? My crimes. She’s the one who Tres pointing his office. Who poisoned the biz? Yeah. Well, from what I understand, you’re the one who put her up to all of it.

Is that what she said? I swear I never held a gun to her head. She’s a grown woman and she can make her own decisions. I. Never ever forced her to do a damn thing that she didn’t want to do. Uhhuh. Right. Well, I guess that’s something that two of you can discuss with your lawyers, but uh, right now you got a date with the jail cell.

So, uh, few. Excuse me. I’m gonna see what’s keeping your transfer.

Hey, it’s me, Chanel.

Yeah. Yeah. I I’m your stepdaughter. Uh, you married my mom last year. Paulina Paulina Price. She’s your wife. Look, look, I’ll show you a picture

here. The ceremony was last Juneteenth. It was in the park, and it was such a wonderful ceremony and so full of love surrounded with family and friends. See, there’s mama. She’s beautiful, isn’t she? You remember her now, don’t you?

That woman.

You don’t recognize my mother, your wife. Sorry, I, I, I don’t, and you don’t recognize me either.

Okay. You know what? I am gonna go grab the doctors and I’m gonna tell them you’re awake cuz this might just be effects from the anesthesia. Are gonna leave me alone, Chantel. Chanel and I will be right back.

What? No, Colin never hit me. Well, you just said that he would get mad at you. And, and that’s why you would do the things that he asked of you. Yes. That, that’s true. Colin has a temper. I mean, he’ll even tell you that, but you have to know it’s because his parents died in the most awful way possible. Okay.

And he’s, he’s never recovered from that. So yes, he gets upset when things don’t go his way, and when he did get mad at me, it’s like he was sorry. Almost immediately. He would literally go out of his way to make it up to me, to show me how much he loved me. Like he’d, he’d go get me little presents. He would tell me how beautiful I was to him and how special I was to him.

My God. Snap outta it. Talia, can you please not be mad at me too? Oh God, I’m sorry. Okay. I’m sorry I’m not, I’m not mad at you. I am mad at this situation. I’m mad that I was oblivious to any of this going on. I’m, I’m sad heartbroken. Really? How could I have not known that you have been in an abusive relationship?

Wait, no. I, I literally just told you, Colin never hit me. Like not even once, Talia, you and I both know that there are other kinds of abuse.

Bedford’s discharge papers have been processed and he’s ready to be taken to the station. Oh, Ray Frank. Well, I’m glad you’re here. Yeah. The prisoners in room 10 14. I’ll be there in a few minutes. Yeah. What’s up, Paulina? Wait, is Abe okay? No, then that’s the problem and he, he still hasn’t woken up from his surgery and I, I can’t find Kayla anywhere.

Okay, well, hold on. I’m sure that Kayla is with the patient. Someone here can probably help you find her. Well, even if I do find her, you, uh, I’m almost too scared to even ask about Abe’s condition, you know, almost lost 10 months before, and now with them taking so long to come back to me. Well, I’m just a You don’t, worried I don’t, I’m, I don’t, I don’t.

Paulina. Hi, Paulina. Breathe. Okay. Okay. There you go. Hey. Hey. Keep breathing. All right, Uhhuh. Okay. Better help’s helping. Okay. Good. Okay. Is this help? Oh, yeah, that does. It does. It helps. It does help. Oh, I’m sorry. This happening here too. No, I love that man. I hate that this has happened to him. Listen, no, listen.

The best way that we can help babe. It’s by helping ourselves. Okay. But take care of yourself. Yes. Yes. Okay. Yes, yes, you’re right. I, I do know that. Okay, good. You know, good. And I know the best way that I can help Abe is by finding the bastard that did this to him and making him pay. Yes. All right. So he’s, find someone who can tell you what Kayla is and I’m gonna go do my job.

Okay. All right. Okay. Good. All. Hey, hey. And remember you help babe by taking care of yourself, okay? Yes. All right, babe. Forbes sake.

Hello, you. You are awake. How are you feeling,

Pauline? Excuse me. I know. I don’t know who you are. You’re my wife.

You took a swab of my DNA without me knowing.


what do you think? Come on. You know, you sleep like a rock


Supposed to go deliver this to Nicole? No, don’t. Don’t you have a brother to go see?

But what about Nicole? I can take it from here.

Oh, come on Nicole. Do you love ej? Or am I just being too nosy as usual? No, no. Anna, you are not being nosy. I know you’re only asking because, you know, you’re concerned for me and, and for ej, but it, it’s just, it’s, it’s complicated. Mm-hmm. EJ and I haven’t been back together that long and, and, and like I said, I.

I do care for him and we do have a long history and it obviously, I loved him enough at one time to, to marry him not long ago. And

I’m just, I’m just confused. That’s Holland. I really, I really need to know who this baby’s father is because if, if it is ejs, And Eric’s no longer in the picture then, oh, come on, honey. Honey, why don’t I put the question in another way and maybe it’ll be easier for you to answer. Hmm. Is it Eric that you love?

Oh, sweetie. I’m not trying to put you on the spot, and I hope you know that no matter what I am on your side. I do, I do know that, Anna, but please, can you, can you stop? Asking me questions and, and giving me advice because I just can’t deal with it right now. Oh, I understand. I understand. I, I, I really do need to be going.

Of course, of course. Honey, you are going to be strong. Because you know, no matter what happens, you’re gonna take care of things because you have to, right For the baby.

Thank you. What are you gonna do with that?

My guy said I’ll handle it. You have enough to worry about with your brother?

Yeah. So how to get to the hospital then,

Eric? Yeah. If this child does turn out to be yours,

I really hope it doesn’t change anything between us.

Talia. You know very well that emotional abuse is a real thing, and it sounds to me like that’s how Colin was abusing you.

Based on what? Based on what, how could you ask that this guy had you committing crimes for him and you told me that he had a temper? Uh, I’m not naive. Okay. Like, yes, I know that Colin has done some terrible things, but I mean, he didn’t just do them for no reason. Say that he had a hard life. You know, I believe we had a conversation about this sometime before Natalia, and I believe that I pointed out that a lot of people have had a hard life and they don’t resort to trying to murder people.

In fact, I know a lot of people who have had a hard life, and you know what? It’s made them stronger because they had to fight. They had to be resilient. I mean, Talia, how can you just sit here and be okay and give this man a pass because he had a hard life. So you’re telling me that anything Colin Bedford does is justified?

No, of course not. He could have killed Mayor Carver. He could have killed Paulina and Chanel. Hell, he could have killed me. Look, I know that. Okay. Why do you think that I pushed him off the roof. That is why I was trying to save you. I was trying to save Chanel. I was trying to save Paulina, and I know that I’ve made a lot of excuses for Colin before.

When I saw him point that gun at Chanel Jay, I know she knew I had to do something. I couldn’t just let him shoot her. I could not let her. Mama. Oh, what? Oh, sweetheart, I thought you were staying with Abe. Abe was awake. What? He woke up a few minutes ago. Oh, thank the Lord. Oh, oh, oh. I have to go see him. Okay.

Wait, wait, wait. Before you do, there’s something you need to know. Oh, okay. What is it? Uh, well, when he woke up, he didn’t recognize me. What? Oh, no, honey. Oh, please. Now I’m sure he, he, he’s just confused now. Come on now, let. Here. Let’s go see him together. He didn’t recognize you either. I, I, I showed him your picture and he said he’d never seen you before in his life.

What? No, no, no, no. I’m sure that’s just the drugs talking. Come on, you take me to him right now. Okay.

You’re asking if I’m your wife. Yes.

Now I, I, I’m. I’m not sure. I, I’m sorry. I, I just, oh, I just can’t seem to remember anything.

I, uh, except, except that there was a,

there is a young woman. And, uh, she said, uh, she said that she was your daughter, Chanel. Mm-hmm. Chanel. She, she, she was just in here, just in here,

and she showed me a. She showed me a picture of our wedding. She said we were married a year ago and, and, but she didn’t, she didn’t mention you were a nurse. Oh.

So you don’t remember anything at all? No, not much. Not much. Anyway, I. But your daughter Chanel,

she said I was attacked. Yes, yes, yes, that is correct. You were attacked by a horrible and despicable man, and I don’t see how anyone could hurt anyone As Sweden and kind as you are. Gentle. And the worst part of all is that you’re still in danger. Danger. Why? Because that horrible man is in this hospital right now as we speak.

Oh my darling. Sweet, sweet, Abraham, you are not safe.


Listen, let’s just forget about calling Bedford for now. Huh? We need to get you arraign. I hired Bere to represent you. Wait, you got me a lawyer? Of course. What’d you think? I’d abandon you?

You’re my sister. I love you.

I love you too, Jada. And I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry about everything.

Shaw. What the hell happened? I went to unlock the guy and got the better of me. What? So, so pet got away. Oh my god.

Don’t worry, mama. I’m, I’m sure as soon as eight sees you, it all come rushing back. Oh, oh my God. Where is he? Where’s my husband? Where is he?

Don’t you worry my sweet Abraham, you are. Safe with me now.

Okay, little one. It’s time to find out who your father is.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Relaxing music ]

Carter: Katie’s handling the italian media.

Ridge: Look at you putting together an advanced team. Good for you, carter.

Carter: Thank you. All from international. Steffy wants them handling all the logistics in rome.

Ridge: All right, I gotta ask a question. Can anyone think of a more perfect place than rome in spring?

Eric: No. It’s a beautiful place. You’re right. But look, hope and thomas have been working really well together, but this is gonna be an intense experience for them. Is there any reason for us to worry about them working together?

Brooke: Steffy should have kept her concerns to herself.

Taylor: Steffy was just defending her brother.

Brooke: No. Steffy was accusing hope of having feelings for thomas, and she was getting liam to not trust his wife’s commitment. Come on, taylor, please. As my friend, just step up and help me. Go to your daughter, talk to her, and don’t allow her to do anything that’s gonna come between hope and liam.

Deacon: We’ve got some fantastic new chardonnays in the wine list. I’m gonna send victoria over now. Okay, great. Victoria, do me a favor, bring the new wine and serve it at table three, okay?

Victoria: Yes, deacon.

Hope: Ahem!

Deacon: Oh, look at this. It’s my favorite customer.

Hope: It is… busy today. Do you, um, have a table for me?

Deacon: You have a res? Uh, of course, I do. Best seat in the house. Bar side, up front with your old man.

Hope: Sounds great.

Deacon: So, what are you in the mood for?

Hope: Mm. Not really sure. I just, uh, needed to see a friendly face.

Deacon: Uh-oh. What’s going on, hope? Oh, god. Let me guess. This has to do with thomas, doesn’t it?

Hope: Ugh! Is it okay if we don’t talk about thomas?

Deacon: Honey, if he’s causing problems or– or if he’s done something, you can talk to me.

Hope: Dad, it’s not what you think, okay? It’s not what anyone thinks. I mean, everyone is so worried about thomas and me when there’s no reason to be, all right? And I’m– I’m tired of people not believing me, okay? I have the situation under control.

Deacon: What situation? Hope, please talk to me.

Eric: Thomas and hope have been working really well together, but an event like this can be very challenging.

Carter: They’re ready for it.

Eric: Any concerns, ridge?

Ridge: No, I think their work speaks for itself.

Eric: Well, it’s all about collaboration and teamwork, so.

Carter: It really is. And I’m– I’m so impressed with hope. Allowing thomas to rejoin the line. She knew what they could accomplish if she gave him a chance.

Ridge: So obviously, thomas’s past didn’t turn out to be the problem everybody thought it was gonna be.

Taylor: You know, steffy made it clear to liam and hope that she wasn’t trying to cause any trouble at all. She was just defending her brother.

Brooke: But you could imagine how liam reacted.

Taylor: Yes. Yes. Yes, I can. And what I would hope is that it would prompt a conversation between liam and hope because if your daughter is having feelings for my son–

Brooke: Well, hope doesn’t have feelings for thomas, so you don’t have to worry about that.

Taylor: Okay. Well, normally I– I probably wouldn’t worry about that, but I don’t know. You, um, you didn’t listen to me when I was saying the same things about thomas.

Brooke: Well, I couldn’t just forget about his past.

Taylor: Okay. Well, I guess I can’t forget that hope has logan blood in her.

[ Brooke scoffing ] When you have chronic kidney disease.

Ridge: All right. Carter, what else?

Carter: Uh, actually I wanna run this by you. I reached out to our associates in milano. Thomas and hope, they’re very excited about doing press, so they wanna set up some social engagements.

Eric: The more exposure, the better.

Ridge: Yeah. Okay. Uh, but they need to focus on what they’re doing, right? Let’s not have them run around having their picture taken.

Eric: Eh, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it? I mean, every time you and brooke went over there, you were front page news. Is– is brooke going with you?

Ridge: Is brooke go– why?

Eric: Well, hope for the future is her daughter’s line. Shouldn’t she go?

Ridge: You know what, dad? You’re not as subtle as you think you are. Thomas is lead designer, so should taylor go as well? Or what do you think?

Carter: I love this. I like this a lot. I like when we veer from the meeting and we explore your love life.

Ridge: My love life?

Carter: Yeah.

Ridge: There’s no love life. Those two women, they’ve sworn off of me for whatever reason.

[ Carter laughing ]

Hope: I’m telling you, dad, there’s nothing wrong. I mean, that is the problem. But I’m tired of everybody worrying about me constantly.

Deacon: Should I be worried? I– I mean, am I falling down at the job here?

Hope: No.

Deacon: Hope, listen, you can come to me anytime you want. You know that, right? If you wanna talk. Is that what this is about?

Hope: No, I don’t wanna talk about this, okay? Liam has already been concerned about thomas and me working together for a while now.

Deacon: Can’t say I blame the guy.

Hope: Except there’s no reason to be anymore, dad. I mean, it’s like I keep trying to reassure him and everybody else that thomas is fine now and no matter how hard I try, no one believes me.

Deacon: Define fine.

Hope: He’s better.

Deacon: Better– better than how crazy he was five minutes ago, better? I mean, it’s a pretty low bar, hope.

Hope: He is a professional. He has been a gentleman. He’s a better father to douglas now and let’s not forget, he is a very, very valuable part of my team.

Deacon: Okay. All right.

Hope: Okay.

Deacon: Great. I– I’m honestly happy to hear that, you know? I mean, look, I trust you not to put yourself in a tough situation, all right? You– you get your best qualities from your mother, but you get your street smarts from me, all right? You know your own feelings. I mean, look, if thomas isn’t setting off alarm bells, you know, you’re not getting that weird twisty feeling in your gut, I’m gonna say that you probably don’t have to stress about it. I mean, you know, you’re closer than anyone. Seeing him with new eyes, I guess. I’ll be right back.

Brooke: Hope has logan blood in her? What is that supposed to mean?

Taylor: Let’s see if I can clarify it. Honestly, it just means that hope has logan blood in her.

Brooke: Oh, my god.

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Seriously?

Taylor: Seriously.

Brooke: Seriously, you’re gonna go there?

Taylor: Come on, brooke. I’m not– I’m not trying to fight or anything. No. But I will always defend my family and thomas has changed. He’s doing so well. You have nothing to worry about when it comes to him working with hope, unless…

Brooke: Unless what?

Taylor: Well, unless hope is the one having inappropriate feelings for my son.

Brooke: Oh, my god. I– I thought we were friends.

Taylor: Well, friends can disagree.

Brooke: Respectfully.

Taylor: Right.

Brooke: Right.

Taylor: See, I have been very respectful about the way that you feel about my son. I don’t understand why– why is it wrong for me to share my feelings with you?

Brooke: It’s not the same thing, taylor.

Taylor: Oh, okay. Okay.

Brooke: You know what? You know what? Our pact meant a lot to me and I don’t want anything to happen to our friendship here, so I’m gonna do the right thing and I’m gonna take myself out before I say something that I’m gonna regret.

Taylor: Well, it’s too late for that.

[ Door closes ] (Wheezing)

Deacon: Don’t wanna take you away

Hope: I knew I came to the right place.

Deacon: Any time, kiddo.

Hope: Well, I, uh, don’t wanna take you away from your customers.

Deacon: Are you kidding me? Look, if my daughter wants to come in and talk to me, there’s nothing more important.

Hope: Well, I actually didn’t, uh, just come for pep talk or delicious food. I– I do have some news.

Deacon: Give.

Hope: My big press event.

Deacon: Uh-huh.

Hope: It’s happening in rome.

Deacon: Oh, you’ve gotta be kidding me. That is so fantastic.

Hope: I know.

Deacon: It’s fantastic. You know how much I love italy.

Hope: Absolutely. And– and it is just so exciting to me. The planning and the preparation. I mean, the whole office is buzzing.

Deacon: I would say that you’re buzzing.

Hope: Yeah. Well, you know, I’ve done business overseas in the past, but something about this time, it just feels different.

Deacon: Yeah. You’re launching a new collection. I mean, you gotta do it up big. I know you’re gonna kill it.

Hope: Thanks, dad.

Deacon: I just want you to know, I’m so proud of everything that you’re doing, all your accomplishments. More than anything, I’m just proud of who you are. Can’t believe you came from me.

Hope: Um, what was that you were saying a little bit ago about, uh, street smarts?

Deacon: Just wish that I’d been around to watch you grow up, you know, watch you grow into this incredible person.

Hope: Yeah. Hey, you’re here now.

Deacon: Damn straight. I’m not going anywhere. I know I messed up a lot in the past, but that part of my life is finished. The best thing that I have ever done with a little help from brooke is make a remarkable woman like you.

Ridge: That’s good. Just a couple of things you need to check on.

Charlie: Yeah. I’ll make sure we photograph all the locked items. And, you know, uh, by the by, I just want you to know I have this phrase book almost totally memorized. Just, you know, in case you need me at the last, uh, at the last, uh… momento.

Ridge: No, that’s– that’s great. If we have any frogs that need lipstick, we’ll give you a call.

Charlie: Oh, sure. Well, yeah. Yeah. Well, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, fosse, uh, uh, possibilimente, huh?

Ridge: Sure.

Charlie: Yeah.

Ridge: Okay.

Charlie: Are you okay? Well, uh, ciao, ciao.

Ridge: Ciao.

Charlie: Ciao [Indistinct].

Ridge: Okay. No, it’s good. I’ll look at the thing. All right. Almost there.

Eric: All right. Good. It’s good we have a moment alone together.

Ridge: What’s up?

Eric: Look… you know how much I love having family around. I love that you’re staying at the house.

Ridge: You’re throwing me out right now, aren’t you?

Eric: I am not throwing you out right now.

Ridge: You are politely asking me to get out.

Eric: No, there’s not a polite way to ask somebody to get out and that’s not what I’m doing. You can stay as long as you want. I’m just surprised that you feel you still need to and that the situation hasn’t resolved itself by now.

Ridge: Dad…

Eric: Look, you and brooke are capable of making your own decision by yourselves.

Ridge: She’s made her decision.

Eric: Yeah. And you know where I stand on that. You and brooke belong together. You always have and you always will.

Brooke: Oh, glad you’re both here. I need to confirm some details for the preview.

Eric: Uh-huh.

Brooke: If I’m not interrupting.

Eric: No, you’re not. In fact, it’s perfect timing. I have some things I have to do and I’m sure the two of you can sort things out on your own. You’re perfectly capable.

[ Ridge laughing ]

Brooke: Uh, okay. What is that supposed to mean?

Ridge: Oh, I don’t know. I’m not sure. It’s dad. He, um, you know how he feels about us.

Deacon: Hey, forget something?

Taylor: Um, yeah. Ironically, I– I did. Um, I forgot that brooke logan is brooke logan. I brought in ensure max protein with 30g of protein.

Brooke: Eric’s always been very supportive, very encouraging.

Ridge: Mm-hmm. Yeah. But he did give me a bit of a kick in the pants today, which I wasn’t expecting. He, um, he doesn’t wanna be my landlord anymore.

Brooke: Well, that’s not true. He misses you when you’re not around.

Ridge: Maybe. But, uh, I think he’d rather have me live somewhere else.

Brooke: Oh, so he thinks that we should work things out.

Ridge: Mm-hmm. He’s not subtle about it.

Brooke: No.

Ridge: You know him. He’s got an opinion, it’ll just– it– it’ll come out. He’ll tell everybody. His kids, grandkids. He’s always been your champion.

Brooke: Yeah, he’s always had my back.

Ridge: And why wouldn’t he? Look at you. You’re so beautiful, talented, great mom.

Brooke: Okay. Keep going. I could use all the compliments I could get today.

Ridge: You’re kind, you’re caring. You– you’re great.

Brooke: I’m kidding.

Ridge: Okay. You’re fun at a party. Even more fun after the party.

Brooke: Oh, my god. Okay.

Ridge: I miss you.

Brooke: I miss you.

Deacon: Do I need to remind you that you and brooke are supposed to be friends now?

Taylor: Yes, I know. Do you think maybe you could remind brooke that we are?

Deacon: Okay. Maybe I was getting mixed signals here, but it seemed to me like you were trying to get me and brooke together so that you’d have a clear path to ridge.

Taylor: No. That– that is not what I was doing. No, that– that’s not what I was doing. I– I was just– I was trying to do what was best for everyone at that point. I– you know, deacon, you’ve loved brooke for a long time. You– you have a child together. Your feelings for her have never changed.

Deacon: Pretty sure she doesn’t have the same ones.

Taylor: Well, but I– I was just saying, hey, give it a chance. You never know. You gotta go for it. And how great would it be if hope had her family together?

Deacon: Taylor, come on. Knock it off. You didn’t come all the way down here to tell me that hope wants to see her parents reunited. What’s going on with you? Just talk to me.

Taylor: Something’s going on. I– I– I’m not trusting brooke. I’m not trusting our pact. I’m not trusting anything right now. We had some words.

Deacon: Okay. Look, if the– the gloves are coming off, maybe I wanna take cover.

Taylor: But deacon, I– I wasn’t, and I’m not trying to manipulate brooke or stab her in the back. I just really believe that– well, you are a catch, you know. You’re– you’re handsome and you’re successful and charming and–

Deacon: All right. I– I– I– stop, dr. Freud. You’re gonna overinflate my ego. It doesn’t need any help.

Taylor: No, I’m serious, deacon. I just wish you could see what I see.

Deacon: Well, you really are good at what you do, aren’t you? ‘Cause you have got a knack for making people feel good about themselves.

Taylor: Yes. Well, that is why I get paid the big bucks.

Deacon: And because you’re a world renowned psychiatrist.

Taylor: That’s right. And don’t you forget it.

Deacon: How could I?

Taylor: Deacon, after today, I… oh, I don’t know. I, um… I think you might be able to help.

Deacon: Okay.

Taylor: You might just be the key, deacon.

Deacon: Me?

Taylor: To ending this toxic, destructive cycle that’s been going on for so long. You need to call brooke. You need to do it, deacon. Do it now.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Talia sits in the interrogation room with her arm in a sling. Jada enters and brings her painkillers but Talia says she’s fine as Jada removes her handcuffs. Talia asks how Abe is. Jada responds that he’s still in the hospital and recovering from surgery but it looks like he will be okay. Talia is relieved that Colin won’t be charged with murder now.

Colin wakes up in his hospital bed and thinks his nurse is Paulina.

Paulina sits at Abe’s side in the hospital, complaining about waiting for him to wake up. Paulina urges him to open his eyes, noting the surgery was hours ago. Chanel enters the room. Paulina questions why Abe won’t wake up. Chanel encourages that his body just needs time to recover and he should wake up soon. Paulina calls Colin pure evil. Chanel points out that Talia played a big part in this too. Paulina decides she’s going to find Kayla while Chanel stays with Abe.

Sloan is at her apartment with her cheek swab of Eric when she gets a call from Nicole, who questions why she hasn’t called her. Sloan asks Nicole to meet her at the park in an hour. Nicole says she’ll be there and tells Sloan that she’s really grateful that she got the sample from Eric. Sloan repeats that she has a vested interest and she hopes like hell that Eric’s DNA is not a match for the baby Nicole is carrying.

Anna joins Nicole in the living room of the DiMera Mansion and asks if she was able to get a DNA sample from EJ. Nicole says unfortunately no, explaining that EJ got called away on business before he could take the sleeping pill. Anna asks when she expects him back. Nicole doesn’t know but says it doesn’t matter. Anna questions how she will get a sample now. Nicole reveals that she doesn’t have to because Sloan got one from Eric last night.

Eric brings Sloan a sandwich and coffee. Sloan thanks him and says she’s going to take it to go because she wants to go see Colin at the hospital. Eric asks if she’s going to take a test because of the virus outbreak that she and Nicole were going on about. Sloan claims that she called the hospital and they said they got the virus contained, so she doesn’t have to take a test anymore. Eric guesses the truth is that she never had to take a test.

Colin’s nurse asks if he’s saying all black women look alike. Colin explains that he only saw her from behind and he’s a little on edge. She calls him nasty and rude. She says she has some medicine for him even though he doesn’t deserve it after what he did to Abe. Colin offers to ask for another nurse but she says she is his nurse and will heal his body, but he will have to heal his own soul which will take prayer, humility, and repenting for his sins then maybe the Lord will allow him in to Heaven. The nurse then exits the room as Rafe enters.

Jada questions Talia being worried about Colin at a time like this and asks if she’s forgotten where she is and what she did. Jada tells Talia that the only person she needs to worry about right now is herself. Talia knows it’s bad but argues that it’s her first offense so they can’t go that hard on her. Jada tells her that she’s wrong as she just met with Melinda and she plans to throw the book at her. Jada adds that she can’t be surprised since Melinda was one of her victims and ended up in the hospital thanks to her poisoned biscuits and could’ve died. Jada remarks that would’ve been better for Talia because now she has a very pissed off district attorney gunning for her. Jada questions what the hell Talia was thinking.

Chanel sits at Abe’s side and talks about how he doesn’t deserve to be in this bed and he wouldn’t be if she hadn’t gotten involved with Nathan Bedford all those years ago. Chanel says everyone says he took advantage of her but she can’t help but feel responsible because Abe is now paying the consequences. Chanel cries that she’s so sorry for that. Abe then wakes up which excites Chanel, who says she will text Paulina right now. Abe asks where he is. Chanel informs him that he’s in the hospital after being attacked over the head and had to get brain surgery, but now he’s awake and is going to be okay. Abe then questions who Chanel is.

Rafe introduces himself to Colin and says he just wanted him to know that he will be facing a long list of charges including attempted murder, kidnapping, and false imprisonment. Rafe adds that doctors say he’s well enough to be discharged so he has to take him down to the police station where he’ll be booked, officially charged, and taken to a holding cell. Colin asks what about Talia and remarks that the only one that should be charged with attempted murder is her.

Jada asks Talia to help her understand, going over how she graduated at the top of her class and was on track to start an amazing career but she threw it all away to come to Salem to terrorize two people that she didn’t even know. Talia claims she didn’t terrorize them. Jada goes over how Talia trashed Paulina’s office and ruined Chanel’s business while getting half the town sick. Talia says she gets it and feels bad enough as it is. Jada doesn’t think that she does. Jada repeats that Talia is incredibly lucky that no one suffered permanent damage or worse. Jada asks why Talia wanted to hurt so many people that she didn’t even know, especially Paulina and Chanel. Talia responds that she did it for Colin. Jada says that’s what she doesn’t understand and asks what kind of spell he had her under. Jada questions what would make her do this.

Anna questions Nicole about Sloan getting a DNA sample from Eric. Nicole explains that Sloan found out that she was pregnant by accident, but she agreed to help her get the sample for her paternity test and got a swab from Eric last night. Anna asks if she doesn’t need a swab from EJ as well. Nicole says that’s only if it was a legal case and hopefully it will never go there. Nicole adds that Kayla said she only needed one swab, so if the DNA from Eric doesn’t match then the baby must be EJ’s. Nicole says she has to go meet Sloan at the park to get the swab. Anna stops her and reminds her that she didn’t answer when she asked if she wanted the baby to be Eric’s. Anna now asks what it means for her and EJ if she finds out the baby is Eric’s. Nicole says she’s been so stressed out about who the baby belongs to that she hasn’t even thought about that. Anna assumes that EJ will be fairly upset. Nicole says that’s especially because EJ just told her that he loves her, right after he proposed.

Sloan questions what Eric is talking about and why she wouldn’t have to take a test. Eric reveals that he talked to Marlena about trying to visit Abe and he asked about the virus outbreak but she had no idea what he was talking about. Sloan tries to suggest maybe she just wasn’t aware. Eric tells her to stop because he knows she’s lying. Eric argues that she and Nicole didn’t have to take some test for a non existant virus and he questions what the test was for. Eric says she is clearly keeping something from him and he wants to know what she and Nicole are up to. Eric demands that Sloan tell him right now. Sloan gives in and admits they are keeping something from him. Sloan then reveals to Eric that Nicole is pregnant. Eric is shocked and asks when she was going to tell him. Sloan responds that Nicole begged her not to. Eric questions why and if the baby is his. Sloan admits that Nicole is not sure and doesn’t know if it was with EJ or the night she and Eric got high on the biscuits. Eric realizes that explains the swab but he still doesn’t understand how Sloan got involved in this. Sloan explains that she found out because Nicole dropped her pre-natal vitamins in front of her and then she happened to run in to her again after Kayla gave her the paternity test and she didn’t know how to get the DNA samples from Eric or EJ without them knowing, so she told her that she could get one from Eric which she did.

Anna excitedly asks Nicole about EJ proposing and why she didn’t tell her. Nicole reveals that she turned him down because she didn’t feel like it was a sincere proposal. Nicole says that EJ started caving to peer pressure after they found out Stefan proposed to Gabi which caused EJ to worry that Stefan had the advantage and more people in the ranks, so EJ thought proposing to her would mean another DiMera on his side which is at least how she saw it. Anna doesn’t imagine EJ reacted well to that. Nicole responds that it’s actually when EJ told her that he loved her. Anna asks how Nicole reacted to that and if she loves EJ.

Talia tells Jada that she told her that Colin convinced her of how awful Paulina and Chanel were. Jada questions her being justified because Colin decided they needed to be punished. Talia argues that she didn’t say yes right away and she was against it at first, but then she saw how much it meant to him and he said if she truly loved him, that she would do whatever he wanted. Talia cries that she was afraid of losing Colin as she was in love with him and when you’re in love, you do things to make that person happy. Jada argues that you don’t do illegal, criminal, and cruel things. Jada says that Talia is smarter and a better person than that. Talia says apparently not. Talia swears she tried to talk to Colin out of it, but every time that she tried to convince him that Paulina and Chanel are good, decent people, he would just get mad so she would drop it. Jada asks what she means by he would get mad. Talia admits that Colin has a temper and would accuse her of not caring enough or being a coward. Jada asks if Colin ever got violent and hurt her. Jada demands that Talia answer her.

Colin tells Rafe that Talia is the double crossing bitch that pushed him off the roof. Rafe questions that being how he describes his girlfriend. Rafe informs Colin that Talia has also been arrested for her part in his crimes. Colin argues that Talia is the one who trashed Paulina’s office and poisoned the biscuits. Rafe says he understands that Colin put her up to all of it. Colin swears that he never put a gun to Talia’s head and she’s a grown woman so he couldn’t force her to do a damn thing that she didn’t want to do. Rafe guesses they can discuss that with their lawyers, but right now, he has a date with a jail cell. Rafe says he will go check on his transfer and exits the room.

Chanel tells Abe who she is and reminds him of Paulina by showing him a picture of their wedding. Abe says he’s sorry but he doesn’t remember her, claiming he has never seen that woman before in his life. Chanel questions Abe not recognizing her or Paulina. Chanel decides that she will go get the doctors to tell them that he’s awake. Abe questions her leaving him alone. Chanel assures that she will be right back as she exits.

Talia tells Jada that Colin never hit her and that he only has a temper because his parents died in the most awful way possible and he never recovered from that, so he gets upset when things don’t go his way. Talia adds that when Colin did get upset at her, he was sorry almost immediately and would go out of his way to make it up to her and show how much he loved her. Jada yells at her to snap out of it. Talia asks Jada not to be mad at her too. Jada says she’s not, but is mad at the situation and that she was oblivious to any of this going on. Jada feels heartbroken for not knowing that Talia has been in an abusive relationship. Talia repeats that Colin never hit her once. Jada says they both know that there are other kinds of abuse.

Rafe informs the cop at the hospital that the discharge papers are complete and Colin is ready to be taken to jail. Paulina comes over and says she’s glad Rafe is there. Rafe asks what’s up and if Abe is okay. Paulina says that’s the problem because Abe hasn’t woken up from his surgery and she can’t find Kayla. Rafe is sure Kayla is with a patient and that someone can help find her. Paulina admits that she’s almost too scared to ask about Abe’s condition as she worries. Rafe encourages her to breathe as he hugs her which Paulina admits does help. Rafe assures that he loves Abe and hates that this has happened to him, but the best way they can help him is by helping themselves. Rafe reminds Paulina to take care of herself. Rafe knows the best way he can help Abe is by finding the bastard that did this to him and making him pay. Rafe tells Paulina to find someone to tell her where Kayla is while he goes to do his job. Rafe reminds Paulina that it helps Abe to take care of herself as he walks away.

The nurse from Colin’s room enters Abe’s room and he also imagines that she is Paulina, saying that he knows she is his wife.

Eric questions Sloan taking a swab of his DNA without him knowing. Sloan admits she did it while he was asleep and now she’s supposed to go deliver it to Nicole. Eric stops her and tells her that she has a brother to go see, while he can take this from here.

Anna asks Nicole if she loves EJ or if she’s just being too nosy as usual. Nicole knows she’s only asking because she’s concerned for them, but says it’s complicated as she and EJ haven’t been back together that long. Nicole assures that she does care for him and they have a long history. Nicole states that she did love EJ enough to marry him not long ago. Nicole says she’s just confused and really needs to know who the baby’s father is, because if it is EJ then Eric is no longer in the picture. Anna then asks if it’s Eric that she loves. Anna says she’s not trying to put her on the spot and that she’s on her side, no matter what. Nicole asks Anna to stop asking her questions and giving her advice because she can’t deal with it right now. Nicole says she needs to get going. Anna hugs her and encourages her to be strong because no matter what happens, she’s going to take care of things because she has to for the baby. Anna then exits the room as Nicole holds back tears.

Sloan gives Eric the swab and asks what he’s going to do with it. Eric repeats that he will handle it as Sloan has enough to worry about with her brother. Sloan decides she will get to the hospital then. Sloan adds that if Nicole’s child does turn out to be Eric’s, she really hopes it doesn’t change anything between them. Sloan then exits her apartment.

Jada tells Talia that she knows very well that emotional abuse is a real thing and it sounds to her like that’s how Colin was abusing her. Talia questions what that is based on. Jada argues that Colin had her committing crimes for him and he had a temper. Talia argues that she knows Colin has done some terrible things but they weren’t for no reason since he had a hard life. Jada believes they’ve had a conversation like this before and that people with hard lives don’t resort to trying to murder people. Jada encourages that it made people stronger because they had to fight. Jada questions Talia giving Colin a pass just because he had a hard life and asks if everything he does is justified. Jada adds that Colin could have killed Abe, Paulina, Chanel, and her. Talia cries that she knows that and that’s why she pushed him off the roof. Talia says she was trying to save Jada, Chanel, and Paulina. Talia knows she’s made a lot of excuses for Colin before but when she saw him point the gun at Chanel, she knew she had to do something and couldn’t just let him shoot her or hurt her.

Chanel finds Paulina at the hospital and informs her that Abe woke up. Paulina is excited and wants to go see him but Chanel reveals that Abe didn’t recognize her. Paulina is sure that Abe is just confused and suggests they go see him together. Chanel adds that she showed Abe her picture and he said he’s never seen her before in his life. Paulina is sure it’s just the drugs talking and asks Chanel to take her to Abe now, so they walk off together.

The nurse questions Abe asking if she is his wife. Abe apologizes and gets upset as he says he can’t seem to remember anything, except Chanel being in there and showing him a picture of their wedding but he didn’t mention her being a nurse. The nurse questions Abe not remember anything at all which he confirms. Abe brings up Chanel saying that he was attacked. The nurse confirms that he was attacked by a horrible, despicable man and she doesn’t see how anyone could hurt a man as sweet, kind, and gentle as Abe. She adds that the worst part is that he’s still in danger because that horrible man is in the hospital right now as they speak, so Abe is not safe.

Rafe returns to Colin’s hospital room but is shocked by what he finds.

Jada tells Talia to forget about Colin for now as they need to get her arraigned. Jada informs Talia that she hired Belle as her lawyer which surprises Talia. Jada asks if she thought she would abandon her when she is her sister and she loves her. Talia cries that she loves her too and she’s so sorry about everything.

Rafe finds his cop in Colin’s room, now cuffed to the bed with his clothes swapped and questions what the hell happened. He informs Rafe that he went to unlock Colin, but he got the better of him. Rafe can’t believe that Colin got away.

Colin sneaks through the hospital, now in a cop uniform. Sloan arrives so Colin hides around the corner as she walks by. Colin then escapes through the elevator.

Chanel brings Paulina to Abe’s room and tells her not to worry as she’s sure when Abe sees her, it will all come back. They then discover that Abe is gone so Paulina questions where the hell her husband is.

The nurse wheels Abe through the hospital and tells him not to worry because he’s safe with her now as they wait on the elevator.

Nicole prepares to leave the DiMera Mansion and declares that it’s time to find out who her baby’s father is. Nicole opens the door right as Eric arrives.

Update written by Joseph

Gwen works in her room at the Salem Inn when Xander shows up at the door. Gwen questions what he wants and if it has to do with work because she’s busy. Xander says it does and guesses her bad mood is because Kyle at work turned in his resignation and now she’s scrambling to clean up the mess she made. Gwen argues that she only suggested he and his team worked harder while Xander argues that he quit because she cussed him out. Gwen complains that he was looking for a reason to quit since she shoved Jack off of his own paper, which she states she did for Xander. Gwen repeats that she’s very busy and tells Xander to get the hell out so she can pull a new sales manager out of a hat. Xander tells her that she doesn’t have to because he already found one in Chloe Lane. Gwen says over her dead body.

Brady shows up to see Chloe at her apartment and says he’s sorry for not calling before showing up. Chloe mentions already having the pleasure of running in to Kristen. Brady asks if she threatened her or anything. Chloe says no and that it was fine. Brady is sure Kristen will leave her alone now that they are no longer together. Chloe remarks that as always, Kristen got what she wanted. Brady says he doesn’t want to talk about Kristen as he has a proposition for Chloe.

Alex is with Stephanie at her home and they have beers. Alex talks about not having to worry about being clear-headed since he’s unemployed and can work remote. Stephanie still thinks he just needs to give Maggie time to cool down and she will realize how much Titan needs him. Alex says he won’t hold his breath because screwing up that deal for Maggie was the last straw. Alex declares that his career at Titan is over.

Justin enters the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion and welcomes Maggie home. Maggie tells him that Victor is resting as he didn’t sleep at all on the plane. Justin is surprised they came home rather than stay in Greece with Bo. Maggie explains that the doctors are moving Bo to a long term care facility since he’s still in a coma, but they aren’t giving up hope. Maggie says there was nothing they could do there and that was hell for Victor, so she convinced him to come home because seeing Bo like that was hard on him. Justin understands that family is everything. Maggie asks what Justin is doing here since Henderson told her that he and Bonnie were going to Chicago to see Mimi and Emily. Justin responds that Bonnie went but when he heard Maggie was coming home, he decided to stay. Maggie says he didn’t have to do that but Justin states that he did because he had to ask her why the hell she fired his son from the family business.

In Chicago, Rex is working out at home until Bonnie shows up at his door and surprises him. Bonnie says that Mimi told her that it was his day with Emily, so she came to see her grandbaby. Rex says he’s sorry but she’s already asleep. Bonnie asks if she can peek in on her still which Rex allows. The doorbell then rings and Sarah arrives, surprising Rex. Sarah says she’s sorry to show up like this but she has news that she had to tell him in person. Rex says he has news as well. Sarah excitedly tells Rex that after he left, one of their clinical patients had a breakthrough and his immune system is responding just like they predicted it would. Sarah excitedly talks about how great this is until Rex stops her to tell her that Bonnie is there. Bonnie then comes back in and greets Sarah.

Xander argues that they are desperate to replace the position but Gwen says they are not so desperate to hire Xander’s girlfriend. Xander tells her that Chloe is not his girlfriend and they are just roommates. Gwen doesn’t believe him. Xander asks why she’s so interested as he thought she was busy shagging Alex all the time. Gwen reveals that’s over now because Alex ended it and said he wanted to be a better person which Xander calls an impossible dream. Gwen argues that they need someone qualified to work, not an unemployed lounge singer. Xander points out that Chloe ran a successful restaurant and had important jobs with both Basic Black and DiMera Enterprises so she’s more than qualified. Gwen says that she can get a job elsewhere then as she declares they are not hiring her and that’s final.

Brady asks Chloe if he can come in to talk about this. Chloe questions if he wants to come in to check things out, insisting that she and Xander are just roommates. Brady clarifies that he doesn’t want to talk about Xander as he has a business proposition for her. Brady informs Chloe that he wants her to come back to Basic Black.

Maggie understands that Justin is upset with her but says he has no right to use that tone with her. Justin asks what tone he should use when she canned his son over the phone. Maggie responds that Alex didn’t follow direct orders and as a result, they lost a multi-million dollar that was already negotiated and all Alex had to do was close it, but instead he scared him off. Justin argues that Alex didn’t scare him off, the deal did because there were problems in that deal from the start. Maggie guesses that’s Alex’s version of what happened as he’s very good at coming up with excuses. Justin mocks Maggie being a corporate mogul for five minutes and asks who she is to say that Alex isn’t qualified. Maggie guesses that Justin doesn’t think she’s qualified, but Victor does and he agrees about Alex.

Stephanie tells Alex that he’s being too hard on himself as he had no idea how the client would behave at the meeting. Stephanie believes Maggie completely overreacted by firing him. Alex thinks Maggie might have a point. Stephanie goes to get Alex another beer as he apologizes for being lousy company. The doorbell then rings, so Alex answers the door as Chad arrives, looking confused to see Alex there. Stephanie greets Chad with a hug and they kiss, noting how they missed each other. Chad says he got in a couple hours ago, tucked in the kids and came straight here. Stephanie asks him to tell her everything because she was worried. Chad first asks about Alex being there.

Chloe questions Brady wanting her to come back to work at Basic Black. Brady explains that Nicole is working with EJ at DiMera, so he’s all alone and he needs her. Chloe is unsure. Brady promises they will keep everything strictly professional. Chloe says that’s easier said than done. Brady gives his word and says it’s not the same without her. Brady talks about how they work well together and he respects her work. Brady pleads with her but Chloe says she can’t. Brady says if it’s because of Kristen, he’ll beef up security but Chloe says it’s not Kristen. Brady questions what the problem is then. Chloe responds that it’s not a problem, but that she was offered a new job and she will be working at the Spectator with Xander.

Xander reminds Gwen that they run the Spectator as a partnership so she doesn’t get to make unilateral staffing decisions. Gwen assumes they both want the most qualified candidate for the job, so they can put a job notice up and together, they can true the most qualified candidate and Chloe is more than welcome to apply. Xander calls Gwen’s jealousy sad. Gwen argues that she’s not jealous, especially not of Chloe.

Sarah greets Bonnie and questions what she’s doing in Chicago. Bonnie explains that she came to see Mimi and Emily. Bonnie then notices that Sarah is pregnant.

Stephanie explains to Chad that she was at the meeting and knows that Alex was doing everything he could to save the deal. Alex doesn’t think Chad cares. Chad understands that getting kicked out of the family business sucks but laughs about getting fired by Maggie. Stephanie says it’s not funny. Chad agrees and says that’s the worst part as it must have been so damn humiliating. Alex decides to let them have some alone time. Alex thanks Stephanie for the beer and says he appreciates it. Alex agrees that Maggie is the nicest person he’s ever known, so he feels horrible about letting her down. Alex then exits. Stephanie asks Chad if he really had to kick Alex while he’s down. Chad assures that he’ll be fine. Chad then apologizes and says he just got back from Greece where Kate was almost killed, Steve got shot, and Bo is still in a coma so he didn’t have the patience for Alex crying in his beer over a job he never should’ve had in the first place. Stephanie responds that Alex was a guest in her home. Chad questions why, asking how she can forgive Alex after what he did to her.

Maggie tells Justin that she’s running a business and letting Alex go was a business decision. Maggie says she gave him a chance but he didn’t deliver, so she doesn’t think it’s fair for Justin to make it a personal family issue. Justin argues that it’s a family business, so it’s all personal. Justin understands he can be protective of Alex because of his childhood and notes his struggles with relationships with women. Justin mentions Alex being in therapy. Maggie says that doesn’t change the fact that she left Alex specific instructions on how to handle this meeting and he went rogue. Justin understands that Alex blew the deal, but what’s killing him is not that he lost the job, but that he let her down. Justin asks if there is some way that Maggie can give Alex one more chance.

Bonnie talks about Maggie not saying anything, so she had no idea that Sarah was expecting. Sarah reveals that Maggie doesn’t know and no one in Salem does. Bonnie questions why not and then guesses that she doesn’t want anyone to know because it’s Xander’s baby.

Gwen argues that Xander just wants to feed his huge ego by thinking she’s jealous Chloe. Gwen complains that Chloe isn’t qualified for the job. Xander points out that when he showed up, she was desperate for anyone to take the job. Xander insists that Chloe is qualified and that she can start right away like they need. Xander reveals that he already offered Chloe the job so it’s hers and declares that’s the end of it as he’s putting his foot down. Gwen tells Xander to go ahead and hire Chloe, but when it turns out to be a disaster, it will come out of Xander’s profits. Xander says he will go tell Chloe the good news and exits, leaving Gwen frustrated.

Sarah tells Bonnie that she is way off base. Bonnie doesn’t think so and brings up how fast Sarah left town, believing she wanted him out of her life and her baby’s life. Bonnie knows Sarah couldn’t trust Xander with a baby and children are everything to Kiriakis men, so Xander would never leave her alone. Rex argues that Sarah doesn’t need this right now. Bonnie relates to how Sarah is feeling because of her ex husband, but says she really believes Xander has changed this time for the better. Bonnie adds that she could forgive Xander for kidnapping her and Susan. Sarah shouts that this has nothing to do with Xander. Bonnie argues that Xander has a right to know, but Rex steps in and declares that he is the father, not Xander. Bonnie notes that Mimi didn’t tell her they are back together. Rex admits they aren’t, so Bonnie takes it that they had a one night stand. Sarah reminds her of Xander hooking up with Gwen right after she told him their marriage was over, so she slept with Rex on the rebound. Sarah says she got pregnant and they didn’t find out until getting to Chicago. Sarah claims they tried dating but it didn’t work out. Bonnie questions keeping it a secret then. Sarah says she didn’t want Maggie to judge her or tell her that she’s making a mistake. Bonnie doesn’t believe them and says she knows they are lying through their teeth.

Stephanie tells Chad that her mom is back, Marlena is back, and Kate is alive and safe, so she asks if Alex is really what they want to talk about. Chad agrees that he doesn’t want to talk about Alex anymore. Stephanie brings up Chad saving Kate and his new relative, Dimitri. Chad jokes that Dimitri is a very fun guy and sociopathic and egomaniacal like his mother. Chad calls them like James Bond villains and says he doesn’t really want to talk about them either. Chad decides he doesn’t really want to talk at all as they begin kissing onto the couch.

Gwen exits the Salem Inn and runs in to Alex in the town square. Alex says he was just on his way to see her. Gwen asks if he’s rethinking the better person rubbish. Alex says no but he heard a rumor that her ad director quit and he’s now looking for a job. Gwen is surprised and says he has a dream job as she questions why he would ever leave Titan. Alex clarifies that he didn’t leave Titan, he got fired. Gwen calls that unfortunate. Alex brings up that he does have experience in marketing. Gwen tells him that she’s sorry but they just hired a new ad director. Gwen calls it a shame because Alex would’ve been quite good at it. Gwen informs Alex that Xander forced her to hire his roommate as it turns out he wants to spend even more time with her. Alex points out that she doesn’t seem too happy about that. Gwen argues that Chloe is unqualified and makes her skin crawl. Alex remarks that it sounds like her night is going about as well as his. Gwen suggests they could help each other get their minds off of their troubles.

Brady asks Chloe about Xander offering her a job, arguing that he and Gwen stole the paper from Jack and Jennifer. Brady asks how Gwen feels about this. Chloe claims that she’s fine with it. Brady questions if Chloe really wants to be living with Xander and working with him. Chloe admits it’s not ideal. Brady calls Xander a sleaze, but says he’s nothing compared to Gwen, warning that she’s pretty rough on women who rub her the wrong way. Chloe questions why he’s doing this and why where she works is his business. Brady calls Xander and Gwen horrible people who know nothing about running a newspaper. Brady warns that it won’t be long before they tank the Spectator, so he doesn’t want to see her get hurt in the fallout. Xander then comes home and tells Brady to tell them how he really feels.

Rex questions Bonnie not believing them. Bonnie says it doesn’t make sense. Bonnie believes Sarah wanted to have Xander’s baby and got pregnant, before she found out that he was kidnapping people. Rex argues that this is none of her damn business. Sarah thanks Rex for trying but admits it’s not going to work. Sarah then informs Bonnie that she is right that the baby is Xander’s.

Brady guesses he better go. Xander feels he was just getting started. Brady wishes Chloe luck with her new job, feeling that she’s going to need it. Xander remarks that it’s always a pleasure as Brady exits. Chloe questions if that was really necessary. Xander asks if he’s supposed to come home to Brady talking crap about him in his own living room and just take it. Chloe responds that the mature thing to do would’ve been to ignore him. Xander admits maturity has never been his strong point. Chloe asks how Gwen took him offering her a job. Xander informs her that she got the job.

Alex tells Gwen that he doesn’t know. Gwen says she forgot he turned a new leaf, so no more random shags. Gwen asks how that’s working out for him and if he’s becoming the new and improved Alex Kiriakis. Alex says it’s going well and that Marlena is helping him out a lot. Gwen says she’s glad. Alex thanks her and says now all he needs is someone to help him get his career back on track. Gwen wishes him luck and says she’ll see him around. Gwen walks away and then Brady approaches, asking about him needing his career back on track. Brady informs Alex that if he needs a job, he may have something for him because Nicole left and he’s swamped at Basic Black. Alex questions Brady wanting him to come work for him. Brady asks why not. Brady brings up it was Alex’s idea to put and Eric and Nicole on the cover of their magazine and that flew off the shelves, so he has a knack for marketing. Alex isn’t sure if Victor and Maggie would agree. Brady responds that Victor has dangled the CEO at Titan position over all of them for 30 years and the best thing he ever did was get off that treadmill. Brady suggests Alex claim his independence and come work for him.

Maggie tells Justin that she’s given Alex so many chances. Justin insists that this time will be different because he will personally be watching him like a hawk. Justin says that Alex really needs this. Maggie complains that the Kiriakis men don’t give up until they get what they want. Justin says it’s in their DNA and asks if Maggie will think about it. Maggie gives in and agrees to let Alex start tomorrow. Justin thanks her. Maggie swears it is Alex’s last chance. Justin assures that she won’t regret this as he hugs her. Maggie hopes not for all of their sakes.

Chad and Stephanie kiss on the couch until Stephanie gets up to get them beers. Stephanie asks him to tell her about Dimitri. Chad responds that he definitely has DiMera blood in him as he managed to work deals for he and Megan. Stephanie asks about Megan being his half-sister. Chad jokes that apparently his father never wore protection. Stephanie points out that Dimitri is still on the ISA radar, so it’s only a matter of time before he commits another crime and ends up back in there. Chad informs her that it won’t be out there because he’s coming here, adding that he wanted to fly back on the same plane and thinks they are going to be best friends. Stephanie questions what there is in Salem that he could want. Chad says he said family but he didn’t take him at his word. Chad doesn’t think Dimitri is coming to be apart of the family, but to destroy it.

Alex comes home to the Kiriakis Mansion and questions what’s going on as he thought Justin was heading to Chicago. Justin informs Alex that they have some good news as he and Maggie just had a long conversation. Justin announces that Maggie has agreed to give Alex his job back. Alex is shocked. Justin questions Alex not thanking Maggie. Alex says it’s been a weird night and it took him by surprise. Justin explains that he just spent an hour trying to convince Maggie. Alex then informs Maggie of how happy it makes him that she thinks she can trust him again, but he’s not going to be able to take back the job because he has another job since Brady wants him to work for him at Basic Black.

Gwen walks through the town square and runs in to Brady, who asks if she has a minute. Gwen says no after the way he talked to her the last time. Brady mocks her being fragile and then apologizes and says he needs to talk to her about a mutual problem they have that only she can solve. Gwen tells him to go on. Brady brings up Xander offering Chloe a job at the Spectator and he guesses that Gwen thinks it’s a terrible idea like he does which she confirms. Brady guesses he can count on her to stop it from happening but Gwen says she’s sorry as that ship has sailed as she gave Xander permission to hire Chloe. Brady questions why she did that. Gwen says you have to pick and choose your battles. Gwen states that it turns out their exes are going to be spending even more time with each other. Gwen then heads back in to the Salem Inn.

Chloe asks Xander if Gwen is really okay with her coming to work at the Spectator. Xander says that she wasn’t exactly thrilled about it but she gave the green light and will come around when she sees how amazing she is at the job. Xander remarks that the only alternative is Chloe going back to work with Brady and they can’t have that. Xander shakes Chloe’s hand and welcomes her aboard.

Rex questions what Sarah is doing. Sarah tells him that Bonnie is onto them so there is no sense in keeping up the lie. Sarah admits that Bonnie is right that she wanted a baby with Xander, but that was before she found out what he did to Bonnie and Susan and that he was mixed up with Gwen again. Sarah doesn’t want to be married to a man like that and doesn’t want him around an innocent child. Bonnie tries to argue that he’s changed but Sarah states that this isn’t Bonnie’s news to tell, so she has to promise her that no one in Salem can find out that Xander is the father of her baby.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: Have you seen your mother?

Kyle: No, but I’m sure she’s around here somewhere. House arrest humor.

Jack: Not funny. And don’t let your mother hear you joking like that.

Kyle: Have you seen summer this morning by chance?

Jack: No. Have you tried texting her?

Kyle: I was hoping I wouldn’t have to. Last night, it felt like we were reconnecting. She apologized for being distant and pulling away, but she’s left without a word to me. Again, I wish it didn’t get to me, but it does.

Jack: Well, we’re all under a pressure cooker. There’s no telling how anyone’s going to react.

Diane: Oh, the conquering hero has returned.

Jack: Well, I don’t know about hero, but I got a book.

Diane: Yes, from a bookstore. So, you spoke to people. Thank you.

Jack: When you are a free woman, I will take you anywhere you want to go.

[ Diane exhaling ]

Diane: You know what? Let’s just go now, okay? Come with me, jack. Let’s just get out of here.

Michael: There she is, my favorite district attorney. Beautiful morning, isn’t it? I assume, since you picked the restaurant, I’m gonna pay.

Christine: Always a pleasure, michael.

Michael: Oh, oh, and you’re gonna offer, um, an insulting plea bargain, I’m gonna let you know right now that my client will most assuredly decline it, in the light of the fact that her supposed victim is, um, wait for it, still alive. Boom.

Christine: No deal.

Michael: And if I’m not paying, then why are you wasting my time?

Christine: There’s been a development.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: Getting coffee?

Daniel: No. I’m picking up something for lucy.

Summer: Let me guess, cinnamon bun?

Daniel: How do you know that?

Summer: We’re a family of cinnamon lovers.

Daniel: Must’ve skipped me.

Summer: Like so many other traits.

Daniel: Hm?

Summer: Let’s just skip it.

Daniel: Good idea. How are you doing?

Summer: I don’t know. My mom is in exile, jack and kyle just want to drag her back so she can be arrested and diane is dying to be my bestie, so I’m pretty much living a nightmare.

Daniel: Well, I know one thing that can make all your worries just disappear.

Summer: Magic?

Daniel: Mom comes home. No matter the consequences. Just like that.

Summer: Just like that? I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

Daniel: You know, when I talked this through with lily earlier, she made a lot of good points about accepting responsibility and earning forgiveness.

Summer: You told lily? All of it? Wow. Daniel, are you seriously incapable in keeping a secret? What’s wrong with you?

Daniel: I’m sorry, because I want our mother to come home? Yes, how dare I?

Summer: She’s not home if she’s in a prison cell. That part doesn’t seem to bother you at all, does it? But, there’s still time. Our special guest hasn’t arrived yet.

Nick: I’m gonna stop by later. I’m, uh, really calling about cameron. Have you talked to chance? Does he know anything about cameron’s location?

Sharon: Not yet. But on the bright side, I haven’t received anymore creepy postcards or bloody souvenirs.

Nick: Well, let’s hope it stays that way.

Sharon: You know, maybe this is all a misunderstanding and cameron’s still in prison. The twisted gifts are the last desperate acts of a man who’s locked away from society.

Nick: But why reach out now? You know, after all this time?

Sharon: I’m trying to set this aside for today.

Nick: Yeah, I hear you, sharon, but until we hear from chance though, we have to err on the side of caution. If cameron has been released, you have to protect yourself and you can’t do that until you know for sure.

Nikki: Nicholas?

Nick: I gotta run. Call me if you learn anything, okay?

Sharon: I will. Bye.

[ Footsteps ] Hello?

[ Door opening ]

Faith: That’s how you welcome your daughter? What are you doing?

Sharon: Um, I’m cleaning up. Come in. You’re here. You’re home. You made it.

Faith: Oh, mom. It’s so good to see you.

Sharon: Let me look at you, my sweet girl.

Faith: Wait. I brought someone home from school. He didn’t have anywhere to go. I really hope you don’t mind.

Nick: We should be ready to close that deal once we get the paperwork back from legal.

Nikki: To hell with the paperwork. Cameron’s been released? Where is that monster now?

[ Cameron sighing ]

Cameron: Ah.

[ Cameron sighing ] Oh. Oh.

[ Cameron sighing ] Oh, hey there, you handsome devil. And since no one’s told you yet, welcome back to genoa city. It is been way too long. Febreze!

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Nick: We don’t know if cameron’s been released. It’s just speculation at this point.

Nikki: Well, how did this issue even come up?

Nick: It’s just curiosity. Nothing more.

Nikki: Because if he has been released–

Nick: Mom, we will be all over it. I promise you, if anything changes, I will tell you.

Nikki: Please do. Because we can’t have a repeat of that situation. How’s everything else?

Nick: Well, I’m glad you asked. We need to talk.

Nikki: Okay, if it’s about the abu dhabi deal–

Nick: It’s not. It’s about vic and nate. What’s your opinion about that? Actually, let me give you mine first. It is a disaster waiting to happen.

Summer: Do you even… do you even know what loyalty is? Or– or how to keep a secret?

Daniel: Yeah, you might be used to this level of chaos and deception. I am not.

Summer: Right. Your life is perfect and righteous. I forgot.

Daniel: Yeah, I needed one person to talk to. Someone who wasn’t going to condemn me. Someone who could maybe see my side of things. That person happened to be lily and you just can’t accept it. You gotta turn it into this huge betrayal.

Summer: Fine. Have a friend, but you better hope that she is better at keeping a secret than you are. I’m so stupid. Like, why did I even tell you any of this?

Daniel: It doesn’t matter. Mom called me too. She may not have spoken on the phone, but I knew it was her. So, I would’ve figured it out eventually.

Summer: You know what, daniel? You need to be careful. Because if other people start finding out about this. I don’t know, people who… own media companies, then you are putting our mom in serious danger.

Daniel: You seem to be the one with all the knowledge. So, what do you suggest we do?

Summer: She stays hidden. Until we can prove that the situation she was in was kill or be killed. I don’t know, maybe we– we try to find the emt. Stark must’ve paid him off to do what he did.

Daniel: That’s a good point.

Summer: So, we find him, we get him to corroborate mom’s story–

Daniel: We can’t put all our trust in one guy though. Especially when his whereabouts are unknown.

Summer: Well, what else are we gonna do? We can’t just do nothing.

Daniel: What about kyle?

Summer: What about kyle?

Daniel: You know that this is upsetting him. You know he doesn’t like seeing his mother suffer like this.

Summer: Yeah, living in the lap of luxury, surrounded by her family. Poor diane.

Daniel: Mom started this. She’s the one who chose this path.

Summer: People make mistakes, daniel. Chance. Hi.

Chance: Hey.

Daniel: What’s up, man?

Chance: A lot, actually. I have some news.

Summer: How bad is it?

Chance: Depends on how you look at it.

Kyle: Uh, can I get you anything?

Diane: Yeah, yeah. A night at the movies. A day at the park. Feeding the ducks at the pond with harrison.

Jack: We will have all of that if we just show patience and a little bit of faith.

Diane: I’m trying.

Jack: I know.

Kyle: I was worried you were gonna bolt. Set off the alarm bells.

Diane: No. I’m not running anywhere. I have too much to stay for. But phyllis, on the other hand, she’s probably off on some island, sunning herself.

Jack: I know it’s frustrating, but we’re not giving up, are we?

Kyle: Someone will find her, the charges will be dropped, and we’ll all go back to our normal lives.

Diane: But time is running out.

Jack: Wait, why do you say that?

Diane: Because the longer it takes to find her, the farther away she can get. She can change her name. She can meet all the right people who will help her do all the wrong things. Trust me, trust me. I know how easy it is for a motivated person to disappear.

Kyle: They are going to find her.

Diane: I don’t know. By then, I may be rotting away in some prison cell. I think– I think we all just need to come to terms with it. It is what it is.

[ Doorbell ringing ]

Kyle: Hi. Um, come in.

Christine: Sorry to barge in like this.

Michael: But this is one of those times where you, um, don’t wanna kill the messenger.

Jack: Has something happened?

Michael: I wanna see the look on diane’s face when she gets the news.

Christine: We’re dropping the charges.

Diane: What?

Kyle: Yes! I knew it.

Jack: Some prayers are answered. Wow.

Diane: Wait. It– it’s true? This is real? It’s over?

Christine: It’s really over.

Diane: Oh, god. Kayaking is my thing.

Sharon: You– you brought a friend home?

Faith: I hope it’s not a big deal. I told him it wouldn’t be.

Sharon: Well, it’s not moses, is it?

Faith: No, but moses loves him too. I’ll be right back.

Sharon: You know, if you’d told me that you were bringing someone, I would’ve straightened up the guest room.

Faith: He can fall asleep anywhere. You’ll love him. Everybody does. Mom, borgnine. Borgnine, mom. He’s a cat.

Sharon: Yeah. Well, welcome borgnine. As long as you’re here, you’re family.

Faith: Speaking of family, when do I get to meet my new niece? I can’t wait to cuddle something that doesn’t shed on me.

Tessa: Did we hear someone asking about a niece?

Sharon: Hey! Come on in. Come in. Ah, I love having a full house. Everybody please, take a seat.

Mariah: What is going on here?

Sharon: Um, this is a cat.

Mariah: Oh.

Sharon: Who is staying in faith’s room, right now. Just a sec.

Mariah: Wow.

Faith: Is this our bundle of love?

Mariah: Oh, yes. Aria, I’m so glad you’re awake because you are about to meet somebody very important.

Tessa: See, this beautiful young woman is your aunt faith.

Faith: Hello, aria. I’m so happy to finally meet you. I have waited for this moment for such a long time. Normally, I would tell you that I’ll be the one to take you for your first tattoo or concert, but since your moms came pre-loaded with that stuff, I’m pretty sure it won’t be a problem.

Tessa: Well, that will be a long way off.

Mariah: Thank you.

[ Mariah and faith laughing ]

[ Faith sighing ]

Faith: She’s so beautiful. I love her already. Welcome to the family, aria.

Nikki: Well, it’s a shame that elena had to be hurt in this. She’s a lovely young woman. But victoria seems very happy.

Nick: Oh yeah, she was real happy about ashton too. And we know how that turned out.

Nikki: Yes. But, there was no way she could have known that he was the monster he turned out to be and anyway, we all welcomed him into the family.

Nick: No, not all of us.

Nikki: All right. The thing is, victoria does not need a chaperone.

Nick: We’ll agree to disagree on that.

Nikki: What do you have against nate? I mean, we’ve known him forever.

Nick: He was different then. Now, I don’t know. It’s like he can’t operate, so now he’s just stabbing everybody in the back. This isn’t gonna end well. Not for any of us.

Nate: Latte delivery.

Audra: You’re a mind reader. Thanks. Come in. Tell me everything I need to know.

Nate: What? About the streaming deal?

Audra: You said that you had some updated numbers that we can plug in.

Nate: Ah, yes. I meant to bring that printout, but I got distracted by something else.

Audra: Something… important?

Nate: Breakfast with victor.

Audra: What did he want? And how bad did it get?

Nate: Oh, it was going great. And then, we started talking about his daughter. And my future.

Diane: No murder charge? No– no trial? It’s all just wiped away?

Christine: The lead detective found evidence that phyllis was alive at the time of her memorial.

Michael: No body, no murder, no crime.

Diane: This is unbelievable.

Kyle: But how?

Christine: Well, chance followed up on the strand of hair that you found at the motel, which led him to finding a program from phyllis’ memorial.

Michael: Yeah. The lab examined the evidence, they found phyllis’ fingerprints as well as her dna, which proved that she was very much alive after she was declared dead.

Jack: There it is. What did I tell you? The proof we’ve been hoping for.

Kyle: You made it, mom. You’re free.

Christine: So, on behalf of the prosecutor’s office, and myself, I just, want to apologize. These were extraordinary circumstances.

Diane: So, what happens now? Now that you know that phyllis is alive? What happens to phyllis?

Chance: So, the lab ran some tests on evidence I found and they just called me back with the results.

Daniel: Is it a match to our mom?

Chance: You were right to believe your brother. Phyllis is alive. And you did see her, like you said.

Summer: So everything daniel said is true.

Daniel: I would imagine that this means D.A. Will drop the charges against diane.

Chance: Yeah. They’re telling her right now.

Summer: Oh, she must be thrilled. I’m sure you are too, right? Is this what you hoped? Diane is free. But what about my mom? What’s gonna happen to her?

Chance: Look, it’s out of my hands at this point. All I know is that when we find phyllis, she will be facing charges.

Summer: If you find her.

Chance: Oh, we’ll find her. Christine is not gonna let her get away with this. I guarantee, she’ll call a press conference and have a perp walk when we find her.

Summer: Christine has always had a grudge against my mom.

Chance: Well, after the money, the man hours, and the embarrassment, phyllis is now the poster girl for what happens to the rich and powerful when they bend the law. Christine wants her to pay.

[ Summer exhaling ] I won’t let me moderate to severe plaque psoriasis

Faith: Is it possible that aria’s even cuter when she’s asleep?

Tessa: No, that’s what I’ve been saying.

Faith: You can wake her up and do a comparison.

Tessa: Don’t you dare.

Mariah: I will kill you.

Faith: I’m kidding. I would never.

Mariah: We have house rules.

Tessa: You wake her up, you put her back.

[ Faith laughing ]

Faith: I want to know everything. Every time that mom calls, she’s always too busy to asking me about myself to tell me what I’m missing.

Sharon: Well, some things you need to hear about in person.

Mariah: I mean, you know about the gala. And phyllis.

Faith: It’s awful. Poor summer. I’ve called and texted but she never answers.

Sharon: Don’t take that personally. She needs time.

Faith: How’s dad?

Sharon: You will see for yourself soon.

Faith: And how about new motherhood to the world’s cutest baby?

Tessa: It’s the hardest job we’ll ever love.

Faith: I love that. Anything else I’m missing?

Sharon: Um, I’m just happy to have all my ladies here with me. Other than that, um, nothing unusual.

Cameron: Money doesn’t have much of a conscience.

Sharon: Yeah. Well, what about you, mr. Kirsten?

Cameron: Well, my conscience is, um, is kind of like my lawyer, my accountant. I can consult it, but, uh I don’t always follow its advice.

Sharon: If you ever, ever, mention to my husband having met me before, I will make sure that the whole world knows what a sicko you are.

Cameron: Don’t threaten me. Because you know what? I got nothing to hide. Now you, on the other hand, you seem to feel you have quite a bit to lose.

Sharon: My children are young, okay? They need me. Now, what possible pleasure could you get out of harming them? Well, that was a stupid question, wasn’t it?

Cameron: Not at all. I like that you came looking for me. So, we can discuss this privately.

Sharon: Please tell nicholas that you can’t make this dinner.

Cameron: Let me ask you something. Do I get a, uh, a little something in return?

[ Cameron sighing ]

Christine: At the very least, phyllis is guilty of fraud and obstruction of justice. On the other end of the spectrum, we have the murder of jeremy stark.

Michael: Which was reportedly self-defense.

Diane: Yeah.

Christine: Once they can track down how the ambulance crash was staged and how the bodies were switched out, that list is gonna get longer and longer.

Jack: It finally happened. Kyle, what do you think?

Kyle: It’s great. I mean, we can pick back up where we left off, wherever that was.

[ Laughing ] I need to find summer. She has to hear this from me.

Daniel: I’m just glad that diane can be back with her family, for good. We both are.

Summer: Right. Yeah. Of course.

Daniel: I just wish we could do the same for mom.

Chance: Well, look. Everything’s up in the air until we get a statement. I gotta run, but I’ll be in touch with any updates.

Summer: Wait, chance. That can’t be it. You must’ve found something else in the motel. Evidence to prove that it was self-defense?

Chance: The room wasn’t even preserved a crime scene. I was lucky to find what I did. Any sign of struggle, it was long gone somewhere.

Summer: Well, how am I supposed to help my mom?

Chance: You know I can’t advise you on that.

Summer: But she is innocent until proven guilty, right? All I’m asking for is that she’s able to come home without an extended prison stay. Look, any guidance that you can give me.

Chance: I’ll do what I can. Within the bounds of the law, okay?

Summer: Of course. I wouldn’t expect anything else.

Chance: First of all, phyllis needs to come home and she needs to make a statement. We all need to hear this from her lips. (Wheezing)

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Audra: You went toe-to-toe with victor newman himself and lived to talk about it.

Nate: It wasn’t toe-to-toe. It was a friendly conversation.

Audra: Does victor do friendly? He was trying to get a read on you, which basically determines your entire future. So, tell me all the details.

Nate: Well first, we started talking about my past as a physician. All the while, I’m trying to figure out what this meeting was about. Then, he brought up victoria.

Audra: Nothing like a little fatherly interference.

Nate: That’s when I knew that the only way out was being totally honest.

Audra: And that’s when you lost your job.

Nate: Will you please let me finish the story? He mentioned a time I did him a favor, that almost led to me losing my job. I was his personal physician for a while, and it almost cost me my medical license. Boy, was I furious, for a while. But, I understand him and his family better now.

Audra: I mean, it sounds like he trusts you. That’s worth a lot to men like him. You impressed an actual legend. That’s pretty huge. And now you’re seeing his daughter, and it sounds like you have his blessing.

Nate: But there’s this one problem.

Audra: Name it.

Nate: Nick.

[ Girls laughing ]

Mariah: Hey.

Nick: There she is.

Faith: Hello.

Nick: Look at that. We sent away a little girl, they sent back a scholar.

Faith: Oh, it’s so good to be home.

Nick: Hey, don’t stay away so long next time. I mean, noah got tired of waiting and he just took off.

Faith: Untrue.

Nick: Okay, that’s probably right.

Faith: It is so not my fault. He opened up a glam club in the uk.

Sharon: He’s back in his old stomping grounds.

Mariah: And it’s safe to travel there now because his ex lives here.

Faith: And allie’s learning the ropes at the jabot lab in paris?

Sharon: Oh, did he tell you? It is the sweetest thing. Each weekend, one of them takes the train to visit the other. Or, they both spend a few days in some other country in europe.

Faith: Poor kids. Their lives are so empty.

Nick: Yeah, their passports are probably junked up with a bunch of stamps from exotic locations.

Tessa: Yeah. Like, why couldn’t they just do something romantic instead?

Mariah: Like come babysit.

Tessa: Yeah.

Faith: As gorgeous and time consuming as aria is, it’s no excuse to put your music on hold, tessa. Next on my road to building my business portfolio? I think I should start guiding your music career.

Tessa: Can we bring the baby on tour?

Mariah: I mean, I can work remotely for jabot.

[ Doorbell ringing ]

Nick: Are you expecting anyone else?

Diane: Right now, I am thinking about the one person who can give me what I want.

Michael: Don’t look at me, I’ve done all the tricks I know.

Christine: Oh, I think I know who she’s looking for. Oh.

Michael: Ah.

Christine: Right on cue.

Chance: Morning.

Diane: Good morning.

Christine: And on that note, my work is done here.

Jack: Christine. Thank you.

Diane: Yes, thank you so much.

Christine: All right, she’s all yours.

Chance: All right.

Diane: And I cannot wait another second.

Chance: It’ll be quick. I promise.

Kyle: Chance, we owe you our thanks, and probably a few apologies.

Jack: Absolutely. I wasn’t always my best self in all of this and I know that.

Chance: Well, work usually starts with the worst day of someone’s life, so I get it. No apologies needed. All right. You are free to go. Or stay here because you live here.

Diane: I am free to come and go.

Kyle: You can live your life again. How do you feel?

Diane: I feel fantastic. Thank you. Thank all of you for everything. You’ve– you’ve given me my life back.

Daniel: I just hope that wherever mom is, she is staying safe.

Summer: You’re the one that put her in danger. Now, you’re worried about her? That’s really rich.

Daniel: I know, it’s all my fault. You did nothing wrong. She did nothing wrong.

Summer: Daniel, I told you that she was alive in confidence. And look at what you’ve done?

Daniel: God, I am so sorry that I have a conscience.

Summer: There’s a full-blown manhunt for our mom.

Daniel: I know.

Summer: All she wanted was to get her ducks in a row. Was that really too much to ask?

Daniel: Diane might disagree.

Summer: Yeah, well diane has her own family that is worried about her. Mom is supposed to be our family. I mean, you heard chance. Christine is out for blood.

Daniel: Do you wanna keep going off on me? Or do you wanna actually try and maybe work together and figure out a way that we can help mom.

[ Summer exhaling ] Okay, look, have you left anymore messages for her on that number that she called you from?

Summer: No.

Daniel: Maybe we need to change tactics. Maybe, I should call her, I leave her a message, tell her that the police are looking for her, beg her to come home.

Summer: Absolutely not. You do that and she’s gonna run and she’s never gonna look back. Not for her own sake, but for us. All she cares about right now is protecting us.

Daniel: Why does it sound like you have inside information? Like you know what’s going on inside mom’s head?

Summer: Because we think alike.

Daniel: Have you been in touch? Have you seen her again? Summer, do you know where she is? We’re done.

Audra: How is nick a problem for you?

Nate: He’s had it out for me at least since victoria gave me sally spectra’s job. And now, he sees I have the chops for this job he didn’t think I deserved. I’ve watched him over the years.

Audra: What’s your read?

Nate: Tenacious. And that’s when he doesn’t even give a damn. But this is about me and his sister. He didn’t trust ashland and he was right to do so, but now he thinks he’s victoria’s noble protector. And he’s not giving up.

Audra: What will you do?

Nate: Handle the problem.

Audra: Well, he’s a newman. Handling him is going to be a delicate operation.

Nate: And that’s where you come in.

Nick: Did that wake up the baby?

Tessa: No, I don’t think so.

Nick: I thought I heard her fussing a little.

Faith: I didn’t hear anything.

Nick: Well, that’s because you don’t have supersonic parent hearing like we do, faith. I mean, even while she’s asleep, she’s adorable.

Tessa: I just could not agree more.

Mariah: I mean, sometimes we’ll just look at her at home for hours and hours. It’s very, very hypnotizing.

Nick: What about you, faith? Are you hypnotized by your niece?

Faith: She’s great. But when will she start doing… stuff?

Mariah: Well faith, that is a very good question. You know the child development books say that around six months, she starts doing stuff.

Faith: I didn’t mean it like that.

Mariah: Is my child boring to you? She’s boring you.

Faith: No. I love her. I could just use some feedback.

Mariah: Oh, I’ll give you some feedback, college girl.

Faith: Oh, what’s in the box?

Mariah: I wish it was pizza.

Tessa: In the morning?

Mariah: What? I’m hungry.

Faith: I thought it might be cat food for borgnine. I placed an order before I came home.

Nick: What? You have a cat?

Faith: Yeah.

Nick: A live one?

Faith: Yeah.

Tessa: Cute.

Nick: Where is it?

Mariah: It’s in her room.

Tessa: When do we get to see him?

Faith: I know. I have to show you.

Jack: It feels like christmas.

Diane: We have so much celebrating to do.

Jack: Kyle said this day would come.

Kyle: Yeah, I just wish summer was here.

Jack: You know this isn’t gonna be easy for her. Great that phyllis is alive, but–

Kyle: She’s gotta wonder where she is, worry about what’s next for her legally. Not to mention all the guilt. Knowing her mother was so hell-bent on revenge, she was willing to go to–

Diane: Nothing from summer yet?

Kyle: She’s not answering my texts.

Diane: Oh, I saw her this morning. She was taking a big bag of things to the clothing drive at the women’s center.

Kyle: She didn’t mention anything about that to me. I’ll see if I can catch up with her. Let you two get reacquainted.

Diane: But before you go. Kyle I– I don’t know what I would’ve done without your love and your faith in me.

Jack: Hey, he wasn’t alone.

[ Diane laughing ]

Diane: Okay. Both of you. No, seriously, I will never forget what you did for me and um, I will spend the rest of forever showing you how much you mean to me.

Jack: Get over here.

Kyle: Aw.

Summer: I know what mom’s thinking because I know how she thinks.

Daniel: If you know where she is and you’re not telling me–

Summer: Then I’d have a very good reason, wouldn’t I?

Daniel: Oh, come on, summer. Is she okay? Will you at least tell me that? I mean, I deserve to know that. Is there something that I can do to help?

Summer: Our mom is a survivor. She can take care of herself.

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right, summer. You and mom, you are just two of a kind. But you know, as tough as you are, sometimes you need some help. You can’t just fix this on your own.

Summer: You’ve done enough already. So thanks, but no thanks.

Daniel: If you wanna blame me, fine, blame me, but at least give me the chance to help turn things around and help with this. We need each other right now whether you want to admit it or not. Mom knows that too.

Summer: I know where she is.

Daniel: How is she?

Summer: She is not turning herself in, I know that much. Not until we can be sure that she can get her life back.

Daniel: Okay. Okay, so what’s the plan? What do we do?

Summer: There’s no we, daniel. I told you that she’s safe. That’s all that you need to know. I’m handling this on my own, without your special brand of help.

Diane: I have been dreaming about it for weeks.

Jack: Name it, it’s yours.

Diane: I wanna go out. I wanna go over the threshold and down the street.

Jack: And that’s it?

Diane: No, of course not. And then, I wanna put on a really nice dress, one that shows off my ankles that are monitor-free.

[ Diane laughing ]

Jack: Then what?

Diane: I wanna go out on the town.

Jack: Yeah? Any place in particular?

Diane: Oh, I wanna go to every place in particular. And then, maybe we can talk about our wedding?

Jack: Oh, I like that.

Daniel: You can’t do this on your own.

Summer: Watch me.

Daniel: Is this like a loyalty test? Did mom put you up to this?

Summer: It’s my choice.

Daniel: I can help.

Summer: Not if I can’t trust you.

Daniel: Summer, this is a mistake. This is too big. It is too risky for you to do on your own. You need to let me in.

Summer: I can’t do that. Not with mom’s freedom at stake.

Daniel: So you’re just gonna cut me out? Just like that? Even though I can help.

Summer: You know what you can do to help? You can back off. I’m the one that’s helping her. And I swear to you, daniel, if you tell anyone else about this.

Daniel: Hey, kyle.

Kyle: Yeah, what’s this? It looked intense. What are you two talking about?

Chance: Detective chancellor. Yeah, yeah, I was the one who left that message. Did you get that information I was asking you about? That’s right, the name is cameron kirsten. You don’t say.

[ Cameron clearing his throat ]

Faith: If I had to sum up borgnine, I’d say he’s complex.

Nick: Well, I just can’t shake the feeling that this cat is gonna be nothing but trouble.

Faith: He is just a little kitty, how much trouble could he be?

Nick: Famous last words.

Faith: You’re gonna love him. I mean it.

Nick: Faith, your roommates stuck you with a cat for the summer. They clearly know who the sucker is.

Faith: It just means I have a big heart.

Nick: Well, now you are back where you belong. You and borgnine.

[ Girls laughing ]

Tessa: We missed you so much.

Faith: It’s so good to be home.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


I hope that you’re okay with me picking you up a little bit early from daycare at the invader. Yeah, i know. You probably miss your mom, but today’s her first day on the job, and she has to stay a little bit late. You understand? You get this. I think what’s most important for you to remember, though, is that this is your home and as long as i need to remind you that our guests will be arriving soon. Yeah. Oh for uncle victor’s will. Reading? Yes. Well, i guess that means that we should probably put ace down, huh? We should. I think that you don’t need to hear anything about uncle victor being abducted and then dragged on to the haunted stars. Enough to last you a lifetime. I think so, too. Fortunately you’re not going to remember any of that, right. How oh.

[ Chuckles ] Come on. Okay. What do you think? More cayenne? Oh, my goodness. It’s perfect. Don’t touch it. Mmm! Where’d you learn to make gumbo that good? Mmm! Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. See, that’s one of the benefits of being a musician in new orleans. Now, the locals say, you go on and give them the blues, they gonna give you cooking lessons. Okay.

[ Both laugh ] Mmm. Hey. Hey. Hmm? Man. That was a happy day, wasn’t it?

[ Chuckles ] It was until it wasn’T. Aww. I’m still waiting for my happy ending. Hey.

[ Door opens, keys jingle ]

[ Door closes ] Carly, it’s me. I, um… I just wanted to let you know that I was thinking about you and I wish I could be with you right now. But I know the best thing for me to do is to stick to our plan to find some way to pressure ned to get the government to drop the charges against us. I know that. I’m on it.

[ Sighs ] I’ll check in with you soon, okay? And please let me know if there’s any updates on willow. Okay. Bye.

[ Sam chuckles ] Dad!

[ Chuckling ] Hi! Oh, man. Hi. Sam: You know your daughter. Once I told her there was a sleepover at daddy’s, there was no stopping her. Mm. Are you sure it’s a good night? Of course it is. Right, dad? Every night that I’m with you is a good night, and I will never take one for granted. Never. Yeah. Diane. I was just thinking about you. Really? So, you think that the feds have been monitoring you and those close to you and saw carly mess up and pointed the sec in her direction in order to try and pressure her to flip on you? Find out how and why the feds got involved. Sonny — anything you can come up with, just let me — I have pretty much exhausted all of my sources. What about the D.A.? I was just thinking about you, as well. That’s not fair. The feds can’t use carly against her own husband. Ex-husband. Th-that’s even worse. She’s not protected by spousal privilege now. I am sure that the feds think that carly’s got all sorts of incriminating information about sonny. And — and they would be right, by the way.

[ Sighs ] There’s got to be a way to keep sonny from taking the fall. Oh, olivia. I hope you’re right. Michael, how’s willow doing? Uh, she just started the procedure. The bone marrow transplant’s going to work. And willow’s gonna be with us for a very long time. We were outside her room a few minutes ago, and she was being really brave. You know, willow’s gonna need a lot of support. And I think we should put everything aside and — and stick together for willow’s sake. Can we all agree on that? If only we were still this happy. I need a consultation, dr. Robinson. Oh, come on. Okay what do you think? Okay. Oh my goodness. It’s perfect. Don’t touch it. Mhm. Where did you learn to make gumbo that good? Hm mhm. Mm hm. See, that’s one of the benefits of being a musician in new orleans is now the locals say you only give them the blues. They going to give you cooking

Of course we can put everything aside. ‘Cause what matters right now is willow. Speaking of which, I don’t think I can just stand here. I’m gonna go see how the procedure is progressing.

[ Sighs ] So, any word on willow is gonna happen soon, you think?

[ Cellphone chimes ] I don’t know. Probably not. Uh, mom, trina just texted me. She’s downstairs. Okay. Go, go. I’ll text you if anything happens. Okay. Okay. They could not get away from me soon enough. Diane: It’s very ironic that you and i run into each other. If the, uh, rumors are true and it’s sonny that the government really wants, then carly is just the means to that end. Now I feel terrible for arguing with carly about this. I mean, if we hadn’t, we maybe could have put our heads together and figured a way out of this whole insider trading mess. Yeah. I-it must be painful knowing that your friend and ex-business partner thinks you’re fooling yourself about your husband. Yeah, well, maybe I overshared with you a little bit about that. Carly understands that my loyalty is to ned. She just — she can’t figure it out. She’s — she’s convinced that he’s the one that blew the whistle on her and drew. Well, carly’s always convinced of carly’s point of view, as if there’s never a possibility for another. I’m sorry. I don’T… I know that you guys are friends, and I respect that. I do. I do. And I agree with you, despite their divorce. And despite that rock on your finger. Yeah. Carly is a proud woman. She cares about her kids. She — she does. She cares about sonny. She’s never gonna send him to prison. But on the other hand, I do believe that someone’s gonna go down for this. And if it’s not sonny — it won’t be sonny. So, that means it’s either carly or drew, and you’re really, really good friends with both of them. Do you think that there’s a chance that one of them will turn against the other to save themselves? Alright. What do you got there? It’s my workbook from school. Ooh. Oh, I think that’s her subtle way of saying, “I hope daddy helps me with my homework.”

[ Chuckles ] Can you believe there’s only a few weeks left before summer vacation? By the way, I heard the metro court pool is opening soon, so we can get in there and we can start working on your swimming strokes, okay? “Working on –” no, no, no. She already swims like a seal. And I think she gets it from you. Hmm. I’m a mermaid, not a seal. I’m so sorry. That’s right. Yeah. Don’t — don’t forget.

[ Chuckles ] Yes. And on that note, mermaids love music, right? This was… this was your brother oscar’S. Wow. Oscar sure did love music, didn’t he? Yeah. And, scout… I think that oscar would have loved for you to have that. What do you think about that, scout? I love you, daddy. Aww. I love you, too. I’m gonna take this upstairs. Oh, could you put it in the guest room, please? You’re right on time, curtis. To celebrate your homecoming, I-I whipped up my world-famous gumbo ya-ya.

[ Chuckles ] I love it, dad. When do we eat? Oh, not we — you. I’m just the cook. This a meal for two. Welcome home. Hey. Any news? Any news? They just started the transplant. It’s a lot like a blood transfusion, so willow is gonna get dr. Obrecht’s bone marrow, and that takes as long as it takes. We just have to wait and pray that the new marrow starts producing healthy cells. I’m sorry. My little problem hardly seems to matter when willow’s life is at stake. Oh, stop it. Of course it matters. I mean, your life could change with these dna results. I’m not gonna let it. Marcus is always gonna be my dad, and curtis is always gonna be curtis, a man that I’ve grown to love and respect. And what about your mom? My mom is always gonna be my mom, even if I never trust her the same way again. I thought you guys patched things up.

[ Sighs ] Have you ever tried to fix a flat tire with a patch? It’s not a permanent fix. Yeah. And, uh, when’s the last time you changed a tire? Okay. Never. Mm-hmm. I’ve never had to change a tire. But I could if I had to. I’m sure you could. After everything you did in greenland with spencer, you guys can do anything. You can, too. Which is why we make the best roommates. I know, I know, but we only have two more days in the dorm, remember? I know. But now I need a place to stay for the summer. Any suggestions? You don’t want to move back home? How’s trina? Grandmother, were you eavesdropping on me? I didn’t have to. I could tell by the smile on your face who it was. That could have been, uh, molly or alexis. You know, I smile when other people call me, too. Not the same smile.

[ Knock on door ] Excuse me. Ava, alexis, please come in. Hi. Thanks. Hi, laura. Thank you. I’ve been dreading this ordeal since I got my invitation. Hello, nephew. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Expecting to inherit something, ava? No, no, no. I don’t care about any bequests. It’s just that, after the hell that that man put me through, I can’t hear often enough that victor cassadine is truly and most sincerely dead.

[ Clears throat ] Oh, dear. I’m so sorry I didn’t see you there. Please come in. I don’t think that we’ve met. I’m laura collins. That’s mayor laura collins. And you are? Jb brown, esquire. Brown, brown, & whitlow. Victor cassadine’s attorney and executor of his estate. You may have seen my letterhead on the invitation we sent regarding this will reading. So, you can go ahead and go, and I’ll — I’ll just stay here until I get word about willow. I can stay.

[ Sighs ] Have you heard from the sec? Not so far. Haven’t heard from the justice department, either. I think you’re gonna hear from them real soon.

Thanks, spencer. Uh, mr. Brown, thank you so much for being willing to do the reading here at my apartment. It saved all of us a trip to your office. Happy to accommodate. The late mr. Cassadine didn’t stipulate where he wanted his will read, only the parties he wanted in attendance. Mm.

[ Knock on door ] Excuse me. Mm. I know, I know. Hey, martin! Forgive me, baby sister. I’m sorry I’m late. It’s fine. Had a minor crisis at the… well, look at this.

[ Chuckles ] Jb. I should have known you’d be here. Huh. You two know each other? Know him? This man is a legend in his own time. Graduate of princeton, oxford,

and yale law school. That’s victor’s lawyer, alright. Only the very best for the absolute worst. Martin. Hello. What are you doing here? Well, seeing as how my client, valentin cassadine, couldn’t make it, he’s asked me to stand proxy in his stead. Are you anna’s proxy, too? No. No. Anna’s on her way. She may be running late. I’m afraid my schedule’s rather tight. I don’t have time to wait for ms. Devane’s late arrival. Uh, well, I can certainly fill anna in. Everyone, why don’t we make ourselves comfortable so that we can get started? Well? Shall we begin?

[ Locks disengage ]

[ Sighs ] I’m just so comfortable living in the dorms. I don’t know why we can’t live there in the summer. Really? Come on. Would it be that bad to move back in with your mom? I don’t know. Things are a little better with my mom, and I don’t know if I’m ready to be part of a family, especially with the dna results hanging over our heads. Well, if you don’t want to go home, I have another option. How’s trina? Good. S-she’s good. I mean, the spring semester is ending soon, and so far, she hasn’t made any plans to come home, but, um… well, maybe when the dna results come in. Yeah. I don’t know about that.

[ Sighs ] Depending on the results, it might be harder for trina to think of this as her home. Well, um… I came home, didn’t I? I guess you heard the news. Of course. Um, I’m sorry you got it secondhand. I wanted to be the one to give it to you in person. I don’t understand. Why was it up to you to tell me? Well, my complicated life just became a little less complicated. Um… w-what are you talking about? Holly’s left town. Uh…what are you talking about? Um… no, I-I don’t believe that carly and drew would ever turn on each other. I mean, d-drew just risked everything to go bring your aunt liesl back to save willow’s life, and the whole time he was gone, carly could not stand the suspense of knowing if he was safe or not. No, no. Those two are completely in love. Yeah, but if the rumors are true — and maybe the rumors are just that — they’re rumors. Well, there’s only one way to find out. Diane: I’m gonna tell you what I’m gonna do this time.

[ Sighs ] We can’t be sure that the feds are gonna take my case from the sec and offer me a deal if I give evidence against you. Not that I would take it if they did. Well, I appreciate that, but like I told you before, I’m not gonna let donna grow up with a mother behind bars. I think we’re worrying about nothing. Like I said, no one from the justice department has approached me. Yet. They haven’t approached you yet. Alright, look, I, uh — I had diane work robert scorpio. He has contacts in D.C., And it’s pretty well known he hates my guts. So, if the feds are gonna make an offer, he’s gonna know about it. That puts diane in an awkward position. You know what? For what I pay diane, she can be in an awkward position, especially when it comes to you. You’re way too important. Thank you. I appreciate that. Thank you for what?

Willow? The transplant’s still in progress, but so far, so good. Okay. But again, what were you thanking sonny for? Um… come on. You have so much on your plate right now. You don’t have to worry about your parents. So, in other words, there is something to worry about? Look, there’s something that I want to talk to you about. And I-I wanted you to hear it in person so you don’t hear it from anybody else. Hear what? Nina and I just got engaged to be married. You and robert are friends, right? Yeah, but I would never — impose on that friendship. Yeah, I totally get it. Totally. But robert is the D.A., And if anyone knows what the U.S. Attorney is doing, it’s — it’s robert. But why would he tell me? Because, olivia, your — your husband’s reputation, not to mention your marriage, are suffering because of these rumors of backdoor deals swirling around. You know, no one knows what’s really true. I think you would be doing everyone a service if you would… go over there, find out what’s going on. Clear the air. Never mind what I was talking about. Why on earth would holly leave town? Her son’s in trouble, so she’s gone to the rescue. Oh. Well, good for her. I’m assuming when all that’s over, she will come back to port charles. Yeah, but I don’t think I’m a factor in that decision. I’m sorry, robert. Don’t be. Ah, good. You two are, uh, talking shop. So you won’t mind telling me if it’s true. If what’s true, liv? Um, I can take a little powder room break if you guys want to talk in private — not necessary. Diane, I believe you are already involved in this. Involved in what? The deal that would make carly give up sonny.

[ Harmonica playing ]

[ Chuckles ] Aww. That is so good. Good. Right? You know, honey, it’s such a nice day out. Why don’t you go practice for the birds? Do you think they’ll sing along with me? I think there’s only one way to find out. Aww.

[ Birds chirping ] You know, I think she’s probably gonna sleep with that harmonica under her pillow. Mm. Well, it’s her harmonica now, so that’s — that’s up to her. It’s funny, isn’t it, how precious the little things can be? You’re not gonna lose her. I don’t know. I mean, if those insider trading charges stick, then… then what? I mean, isn’t there any way to fix this? Well, that depends on the whistleblower. I mean, ned’s got the clout. Ned’s got the contacts to make this whole thing go away. But he’s not gonna do that. The less you know, the better. Are you — are you kidding me? If you want to dig up leverage on ned, that’s what I do. It’s in my wheelhouse. All you have to do is ask. You did come back home.

[ Chuckles ] And I’m beyond grateful. I just hope that you’re back for good. The ashford/robinson party, right this way, please.

[ Both chuckle ]

[ Doorbell rings ] Oh, my goodness. You don’t think that… maybe trina thinks of this as her home after all. I know! I don’t know why I didn’t think of that before. You can move in with me. There’s plenty of room. Shouldn’t we ask your mom first? Why? She’ll love the idea. Are you sure, joss? What about spencer? What about him? I was thinking maybe the worst is over and I have nothing to worry about with this will reading, and then I remembered what a monster victor was. Well, go ahead and worry. I’m going to enjoy this. Mm. Everyone, it’s time to let my client speak for himself.

[ Computer beeps ]

Hello, everyone. And welcome to the reading of my will.

If you’re watching this video, congratulations. You survived. And sadly, my attempt to make the world a better place has failed. His warped view of the world. The shame is that you’re going to have to carry on for the rest of your lives in an overpopulated, under-resourced planet. But hopefully my bequests will help provide a little comfort to you as civilization continues to crumble all around you. Ava, my dear, until my nephew nikolas returns — if ever — to rekindle your romance, I bequeath to you a rendering of your first true love.

[ Computer beeps ]

[ Light laughter ]

Ava: Oh! Eh. Maybe I can donate it and get a tax write-off. [ Laughs ]

[ Computer beeps ]

Alexis, my dear niece, I’ll never forget the kindness that you extended to me, inviting me into your home for that thanksgiving. This matryoshka doll dates back to the romanovs. Inside are ever-smaller versions of itself, each one representing your daughters. This is actually nice. And to one daughter in particular, samantha, I bequeath this deck of very rare tarot cards. Who knows? Maybe one day she’ll use them to make herself lucky in love [Chuckles] For once. And there it is. Victor the monster. I know you and spencer aren’t as close as you used to be. Hey, he is always welcome to come by and see you. He can even bring ace, just as long as esme is not a part of the equation. And what about dex? What about him? Oh, come on, joss. Dex and spencer hate each other, and you know it. Surprise!

[ Chuckles ] I take it tj didn’t let anyone know I was back in town. Tj does work extremely long hours at G.H., So — I-I know. I… and I know he has a lot on his mind now, so… I took it upon myself to — oh. Is this a bad time? Really, I’m — okay. I’ll just text, and I’ll contact you guys later. Stella, stella, you’re not going anywhere. Is she, curtis? Aunt stella’s always welcome. Am I really? I wouldn’t blame either of you if — curtis is absolutely right, stella. You are always welcome here. Then why are we standing around like strangers? Stella, girl, you look great! Come on here and give me a hug. Come on, now.

[ Laughs ] I’m glad to see you two are together, in spite of me. Olivia, where did you hear that there is a deal on the table regarding carly? I heard that carly can get out of these insider trading charges if she gives up sonny. Is there any truth to that, district attorney? Now, look, you two are not playing by the rules here. I care because, “a,” sonny is dante’s father, “b,” carly is my best friend, and, “c,” my husband is suspected of being the one that blew the whistle on drew and carly. And, “d,” diane is sonny’s attorney, so I assume that she is very interested in this, too. So, why don’t you stop stalling and just answer the question? Okay. Let me make it easy for you. If you stay silent, that’s all the confirmation we will need. What I can say is, um…

[ Sighs ]

[ Clears throat ] You got your answer? Michael: It’s no surprise that you and nina would eventually take the next step. But our agreement still applies. It’s always gonna be willow’s decision whether she wants nina in her life or your children’s life. The — my engagement doesn’t change that. Glad to hear it. Alright, well, I got to go. I got to make a call. Um… look after your mother. Always do. You knew? I-I did. I happened to be at the metro court last night when nina couldn’t wait to, uh, announce that they were toasting their engagement. And then sonny stopped by the house today so he could tell donna. And that’s why you were thanking him for being so up-front about it? Or, um, is it something else?

victor: And now to other family members. To my darling granddaughter charlotte, I bequeath this necklace and pendant engraved with the cassadine crest in the hopes that it will remind you of who you are and who you will one day become. As for your father, the rotten apple of my eye, valentin cassadine, to you, my son, and to all of those who have betrayed me, I make this bequest. In this satchel, you will find a rare piece of antiquity. It was unearthed on cassadine island in greece. It’s the last surviving piece of a once-majestic statue of the sun god, apollo.

[ Laughter ]

Whenever you look at it, I do hope you remember me.

[ Light laughter ] Hey, sonny. Uh, hi. How is she? The transplant is still in progress. Everything seems to be going well.

How are you holding up? Well, um, I’m not gonna lie and say that I’m not worried ’cause obviously I am. I’m just trying to stay positive and believe everything is gonna get better. Hey, sailor. Buy a girl a drink? Hey, the drinks are on you.

[ Chuckling ] Okay. Well, I deserve that. Just so you know, though, I was only doing my job. Corinthos still paying your retainer? He is entitled to legal representation, as well. Or — or have they totally dropped the sixth amendment? Come on. Why do you always got to be so right? Because I am always right. Actually, I’m not. Take that back. For instance, I thought you and holly were meant for each other. So did I. Come on, trina. When we move out of the dorms, move in with me, at least just short term.

[ Sighs ] And what about the fact that our boyfriends can’t stand each other? Let’s not worry about them. So, dex didn’t tell you? Tell me what? At the gym the other day, spencer took a swing at dex. What?! I saw dex that day. He was fine. You saw him, too. Because dex blocked the punch and landed one of his own. Spencer’s lip is cut. Oh.

[ Chuckles ] You don’t seem overcome with concern. Okay. To be fair, spencer punched dex first, remember? In kelly’s right before christmas? And dex didn’t even fight back. Spencer probably thought that he wouldn’t or couldn’t, but dex knows how to defend himself, and it’s about time spencer realized that. I would love to think that spencer learned his lesson, but most likely, he’ll keep antagonizing dex. He just can’t seem to help himself. Okay, well, trust me, dex has a lot more to worry about than getting along with spencer. What does that mean? I — you know, he’s really busy. And working for sonny isn’t exactly a low-pressure job. Uh, I have to get back to my family. Okay. I love you. And I-I hope you get those test results soon. And I hope that willow comes through with flying colors. Thank you. Me too. See ya.

[ Cellphone chimes ] It was a beautiful wedding, wasn’t it? It was. Yeah. It absolutely was. And, um, laura — she did a phenomenal job filling in for you, stella. I’m sure she did. I…only wish… you’re not the only one who wished things had been done differently. Yeah. Hey, what kind of homecoming is this, huh? What kind of — you know what I’m gonna do? Forget the table for two. I’m setting two more plates. There’s plenty of gumbo to go around.

[ Chuckles ] Well, aunt stella, might as well settle in. When he sets his mind, you got two choices — either give up or give in. I did not come all this way just to give up. And neither should the two of you. Like I said to tj, love is always worth fighting for. I don’t want to add to your worries today of all days. Let’s just wait and make sure that the bone marrow transplant worked successfully — h-hold on a second. Y-you’re actually worrying me more trying to dodge. Just tell me — why are you so grateful to sonny? Okay, hold on. You came in at the tail end of that conversation. So fill me in on the rest. There’s a rumor that the justice department is gonna offer me a deal. They will forget about the insider trading charges if I give them evidence against your father.

Oh, darn. I have to go. Crisis. Too bad. Here. Enjoy. Good luck, everyone. See ya. I think I’ve done my part for my client… bye-bye, alexis. …So, uh, I’ve had enough. Unless, of course, my sister needs me to stay. Oh, no, not at all. I am just fine. I’ll walk you out. Well, all that’s left is you, kid. Mr. Brown: Mayor collins?

[ Door closes ] Yes, yes. Please.

[ Computer beeps ] Victor: As for you, spencer, oh, we’ve had many discussions about safeguarding your family. I may not be there in person to explain this to you, but I trust you’ll know what to do with my bequest. Dinner is ready.

[ Cellphone rings ] Mm-hmm. Y’all better come on. Hello, trina. Curtis. I hope I’m not interrupting if you’re at the club. No, no, no. I’m at home here with your mom. Is everything okay? Okay. Bye. Curtis? What is it?

[ Chuckles ] It’s trina. She’s at the hospital. What? W-what do you mean? Is — is she okay? What happened? She’s fine. She’s fine. The dna results are in. What ultimately happened with holly? Life happened. What was it you said to her? You said, um… if we couldn’t make it work for all those years, why do we think we can make it work now? I’m sorry, robert. I really am. Next time you want to pump me for information, have your office call my office and let’s put it on the books. Drew: I just wanted to thank you for offering to dig up dirt on ned. That means a lot, but… I’m gonna really need you to stay out of this one. Because… what? …If I do go to prison, if I do, scout is gonna need one of us to stick around.

[ Chuckling ] Hey! Look who was giving a concert out in the garden. There she is. Hi. Baby, I’m gonna leave. I love you, sweet dreams, and have so much fun. I’ll see you in the morning, okay? See you in the morning. Okay. Bye. Bye. Thank you. Bye. See ya. You know what? I think that there is a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie in the kitchen with your name on it! Oh, man! What do you think? There she goes. Look at that. Hey, I thought you had a meeting. I did. Lucky for you. Because that little girl is gonna need her daddy. Sam and I were just talking about that. Yeah, well, if you want to stick around for scout, I got some information you need. Did you tell michael about our engagement? Yeah. Um… he wasn’t thrilled, but he wasn’t hostile. And now that it looks like there’s a future for both of us, maybe we can have hope that willow will recover and find room in her heart for you. At this point, it’s only a rumor. Sonny has diane looking into it to see if there’s any truth to it. Well, if there is… will you take it? You know better. Mom, I — [ Sighs ] I’ve watched you protect sonny my whole life. Now maybe — maybe you should think about protecting yourself instead. Michael — if — if this government deal is legit and all you have to do is give them sonny and you’ll go free, then… what — what are you waiting for? Mom, take the deal.

On the next “General Hospital” —

[ Dramatic music ]

Hope: I can’t believe that you would tell liam that I have feelings for thomas. I mean, your perception of my working relationship with your brother is–

Steffy: That’s the thing. Thomas has his head on straight. He isn’t the problem.

Hope: OH. And I am?

Steffy: Well, it isn’t thomas, so that’s why I felt it was a need to protect him. All the progress he’s made.

Hope: Thomas doesn’t need protection, especially not from me. Can you just do me a favor and stay out of my business?

Ridge: So this is for me?

Taylor: Yes, it is. Burrata and pesto. Your favorite.

Ridge: That is my favorite. Why don’t you stay, eat it with me?

Taylor: Uh, well, I already ate.

Ridge: Oh, okay. So, I gotta do everything on my own. Fantastic.

Taylor: Yes. You have to do everything on your own. I just came from ii giardino with brooke.

Ridge: I see. So, you can eat with her, but you can’t eat with me.

Taylor: Well, I mean, I could, as long as it’s not a date.

Ridge: A date?

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: What is a date? Really, I’ve forgotten. I’ve been in exile for so long.

Taylor: Okay. Well, a date is finishing dinner, and then getting lost in eye contact, minds racing, hearts pounding and then you… pay for dinner. That’s a date.

Ridge: Okay.

Steffy: I was never trying to sabotage your relationship.

Hope: Oh, well, it sure feels that way.

Steffy: Someone had to stick up for my brother.

Hope: Oh, okay. By throwing me under the bus in the process.

Steffy: That was never my intention, hope.

Hope: Of course, it was, steffy. That’s exactly what you were doing by going to liam. You knew that he would be upset, but you’re wrong, okay. You’re dead wrong. I am fully committed to my husband.

Steffy: Okay. Fine. Then, there shouldn’t be a problem then, right? Okay.

Ridge: So that almost kiss was the closest I’ve got to getting any action since you guys put me in the timeout.

Taylor: Oh, stop. Stop. There are– there are tons of women out there for you.

Ridge: Why are you trying to hand me off to another woman?

Taylor: I don’t think I would ever do that.

Ridge: Because it sounds like you’re done with me.

Taylor: I am. That doesn’t mean that I– I don’t think about you and all the wonderful times we shared.

Brooke: Hi, honey. I got your text.

Hope: Yeah.

Brooke: What happened? You seem upset.

Hope: Oh, yeah. Yeah. Upset doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface, so.

Brooke: What’s going on?

Hope: It was just steffy. It’s steffy. She’s up to her old tricks again.

Brooke: What did she do?

Hope: Oh, you know, just interfering in my marriage.

Your heart

is the beat of life.

Ridge: You know, I’ve got a real spring in my steps and I think it’s because of you. Thank you.

Taylor: Really? Because of the pizza I brought you?

Ridge: Yeah. Yeah. Pizza. And, uh, what you said earlier.

Taylor: What did I say earlier?

Ridge: That you think about me sometimes.

Taylor: I think about you all the time. I mean, you know, I– I see you and our kids every day. I’m so proud of steffy and thomas. I’m– I’m proud of us too. You know, as– as their parents.

Ridge: Yeah, me too. I’m– I’m proud of us.

Taylor: We’re doing good. Like, we’re all doing so good. I just wish–

Ridge: You wish what?

Taylor: No, I– I don’t think I wanna–

Ridge: No, you started, so you’ll finish. What is it?

Taylor: No, no. It– just all this talk about me and brooke and our– and our friendship.

Ridge: Did something happen or?

Taylor: We had a disagreement and, uh, it just kinda opened my eyes a little. I’m not sure if brooke has been honest and transparent with me when it comes to you. You know, we have this pact. Has she broken that? Has she done anything to go against it? ‘Cause, you know, you– you’ve had dinners, you’ve– you’ve hung out. Is there anything that I should know about?

Ridge: Doc, I–

Taylor: Okay. You don’t need to say anything. I– I get it. I was right.

Ridge: No, no.

Taylor: It’s okay. No, it’s– I just wish–

Charlie: Hiya, boss.

Ridge: Oh.

Charlie: I, uh… oh, dr. Hayes. I’m sorry. I– I didn’t know you two were having this session.

Taylor: We’re not having a session.

Ridge: What do you need, charlie?

Charlie: Well, I heard we were going to rome, and so I got my italian phrase book and– and I got my passport renewed. And– and– and I, uh, look, I– I– I know it’s mostly for the– the hope for the future crew, but… you know, you’ve seen

the godfather. I mean, you might need me.

Ridge: I think we’ll be okay. I– I appreciate you offering, but we could really use you here. Inventory.

Charlie: Right. Okay. I’m– yeah, I’m on it.

Ridge: Okay.

Charlie: Oh, oh, oh. Uh, dr. Hayes, listen, I’ve been having these dreams.

Taylor: What are they about, charlie?

Ridge: Oh, no. Absolutely not. It’s all we have time for today. Thank you. I’ll see you soon.

Charlie: Good.

[ Speaking italian poorly ]

Steffy: Your frog wears lipstick?

Charlie: What? Is that what I said? But wait, I gotta– I gotta fix it. I just–

Steffy: Okay.

Taylor: Hi, baby.

Ridge: Why would you–

Taylor: I was just– I– how is our– how is our favorite co-ceo?

Steffy: I am not great.

Ridge: Come on.

Steffy: I– I don’t– I really don’t wanna get into it. I really don’T.

Taylor: You always feel better when you talk to us.

Steffy: Hope’s upset.

Ridge: She’s upset. Why?

Steffy: You know how thomas always gets accused of being infatuated with hope? What if I told you it was the other way round? I think hope has feelings for thomas.

Brooke: I really can’t believe this. I mean, what would drive steffy to go to liam?

Hope: Mm. I don’t know. She has some nerve, though, insinuating herself into my marriage like this. I mean– actually no, no. Wait. This isn’t the first time, right? So, I shouldn’t be surprised. It’s just what she does.

Brooke: Just to be clear, steffy is mistaken.

Hope: Oh, yes. Obviously. Yes.

Brooke: Okay. Okay. I’m just trying to get things straight here. I mean, this really is very surprising.

Hope: Well, yeah. I mean, it would be– it would be one thing if she just came to me, right? And asked me these questions and brought up these concerns, but it’s another thing to go behind my back and gossip to my husband and plant seeds of doubt.

Brooke: I’m sure liam was upset.

Hope: I mean, he was blindsided. I mean, how could he not be hearing that his wife has feelings for another man, let alone thomas, after all the things that he’s done? I mean, it’s– it is ridiculous, but, um, you know, liam, I think he– he realizes that now, and– and he– he understands, but it took some persuading.

Brooke: So what do you think could have prompted steffy?

Hope: Oh, to attack me like this? Yeah. I, uh, asked her point blank, and she said that it was one particular incident in this office. Yeah. Except that’s not at all how it happened. Thomas and I were excited. The numbers were good. We got caught up in a celebratory moment, taking pride in our work. But, you know steffy. Suddenly, it becomes intimate. And thomas and I are caressing each other’s hands, and I’m gazing into his eyes and it’s just…

[ Laughing ] Just– just gimme a break.

Brooke: Uh, okay. Look, please don’t take this the wrong way, but I really have to ask again. Is there any validity to this?

Hope: Mom!

Brooke: I need you to be honest with yourself and with me. Is steffy right? Have you developed feelings for thomas? Martial arts is my passion.

Taylor: I’m glad you stood up for your brother.

Steffy: Yeah, I had to. Liam kept going on and on about not being able to trust thomas when hope is the one that should be called into question.

Taylor: Yeah. Well, I mean, I understand where you’re coming from. I’m– I’m sick and tired of hearing the same messages about thomas too. That– that he’s reckless and unhinged.

Steffy: Liam has some serious reservations about hope and thomas working together and we all kind of dismissed him because we thought thomas changed.

Ridge: He has changed.

Steffy: No, you’re right. Absolutely. But maybe liam was right about some vibe between them.

Taylor: Yeah. But he didn’t realize that the vibe was actually coming from hope.

Steffy: But hope likes to say, this is all in my head.

Taylor: Of course. Yeah.

Ridge: Well, whatever it is, it’s getting a little messy.

Steffy: Look, I know hope loves liam and she doesn’t wanna lose him. I’m sure she wasn’t trying to find someone else to be attracted to, let alone liam’s worst nightmare. I was just looking out for him. I’m not trying to make trouble in their marriage.

Taylor: Of course, you’re not. You– you did the right thing. You know, you weren’t trying to be hurtful. We all know that. Whatever happens now is up to hope.

Hope: We’ve already gone over this.

Brooke: You never gave me a clear answer.

Hope: There’s nothing to worry about, okay?

Brooke: Okay, so you can say unequivocally, that you don’t have feelings for thomas.

Hope: I don’T. I– I don’t want anything from thomas more than– than to be co-parents, to be coworkers and– and to be friends. So wrong to admit that I– that I am human?

Brooke: What does that mean?

Hope: It’s– I– I have eyes. Okay, mom. So yes, I can appreciate that thomas happens to be good looking and he’s funny. And yes, we just happen to spend 10 to 14 hours working together in a day. That’s all.

Brooke: And what does that mean? Hope, come on. You’ve gotta be honest here.

Hope: I am. That’s what I’m doing here. I am being honest, okay? I– I– I might have felt a little something.

Brooke: For thomas?

Hope: Yeah. Yeah. But it’s fine, mom. It’s fine. I can handle it, okay? It’s nothing

Brooke: Oh, my god. No. No. It’s not nothing. You have to be upfront.

Hope: I am, okay? And– and– and– that’s normal, right? Isn’t that normal for people to just sometimes have thoughts and desires? And– and this is okay as long as you don’t act on them, right?

Brooke: If you’re having thoughts and desires, that could lead to something else and that would be dangerous.

Hope: But this not– that’s not for me, okay? ‘Cause I– I wouldn’t do that. I wouldn’t cross the line. I am in control of myself, okay? So, you don’t have to worry about that when it comes to me. What I just had wished was that steffy would’ve kept her big mouth shut because liam has had issues with thomas and me collaborating already and now, I have her gossiping. And it’s just… my relationship means everything to me and I’m not going to let anything or anyone, including myself, destroy that. I love liam. I love him. He’s my husband. He’s my daughter’s father. Liam is the love of my life. When you have chronic kidney disease.

Ridge: Too bad your mom had to go back to the office.

Steffy: I hope I didn’t bring the mood down when I walked in.

Ridge: What? You? Stop it. You are a ray of sunshine. Everyone’s been so happy around here. I just hope that this is not a disruption.

Steffy: Yeah, let’s hope not.

Ridge: Couldn’t come at a worst time.

Steffy: Tell me about it.

Ridge: We got previews. We got all kinds of stuff–

Steffy: Traveling to rome.

Ridge: Of course.

Steffy: Most romantic place in the world. Hope and thomas working even longer hours.

Ridge: And you think everything between them is strictly professional?

Steffy: I– I’m certain that’s the case for thomas.

Ridge: What about her?

Steffy: I wanna believe hope. That she’s not interested in thomas. I’m just not convinced.

Steffy: I’m just trying

to make sense of all of this.

Steffy: So, are you lying?

Are you attracted to thomas?

Liam: Hey, this is liam.

I can’t come to the phone

right now. I’ll call you back

as soon as I can.

Hope: Liam, hey, it’s, um, it’s me. Um, I know that things have been a bit challenging lately, but I just, uh, wanted you to know how much I love you, how much I love our life together. Um, okay. Yeah. I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you. Okay. I will see you at the house later tonight. Bye.

Brooke: Oh, it’s okay. I’m sure dr. Hayes won’t mind.

Taylor: Hello, brooke. Gosh, I didn’t see you on my schedule.

Brooke: Have you spoken to your daughter today?

Taylor: Yes. Yes, I have.

Brooke: Well, it was kinda strange the things that she said to liam, to hope’s husband.

Taylor: Okay. Well, she was just defending her brother. He’s worked very hard to get to where he is right now.

Brooke: Okay. So, that’s all that it was. There’s no other motivation.

Taylor: What other motivation could there be?

Brooke: I don’t know. Steffy knows that it’s a very volatile situation. Thomas and hope working together. She knows that liam doesn’t like it, that he’s very uncomfortable with it.

Taylor: I– I think that steffy was just being a protective little sister. That’s all.

Brooke: Really? Okay. She was pointing fingers and she was getting liam to not trust his wife. It seemed like she was actually trying to tear apart their marriage.

Taylor: Okay. That’s enough. Steffy wouldn’t do that. I don’t know– that– that is just unfair what you’re saying.

Brooke: Doesn’t matter anyway because hope would never cheat on liam.

Taylor: Oh, okay. Oh, no one was saying that she would.

Brooke: We’re friends, right, taylor?

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Are we? Because I know we worked really hard on this friendship. We worked really hard to get where we are and right now, I am asking you to step up as a friend and help me. Go to your daughter, insist that she take back every word that she said to liam because that wasn’t fair. My daughter has a family. A family that she loves very much and I sure as hell, I’m not gonna let your daughter step in between hope and liam.

What do you want? I’m busy and in a swell mood. I see. Yes. Well, I’m working, so if this doesn’t have to do with work, then it does have to do with work, as does your foul mood. I bet. You’re upset because Carl Gottle handed in his resignation. Your Elon Musk managerial style blew up in your face, and now you’re scrambling to fix the mess you made.

Aren’t you? The mess I made, I didn’t bloody sack him. The whiny little tosser quit because you treated him like an incompetent temp. I merely suggested that he and his team work a little bit harder to secure more digital ad buys this quarter. Mm. You cursed him out in front of his entire team. So he walked and now we don’t have an ad sales director.

Look, he was looking for an excuse to quit. He saw my father as walking on water and he saw me as the bitch who shoved him off of his own paper. You are the bitch. You shop jack off his own paper. I did that for you.

Now, as I said, I’m very busy, so if you don’t mind, just get the hell out of here so I can pull a new sales manager out of a out of a hat. You don’t have to. I already found one. What? Who? Chloe Lane. Dead.

Hey. Hey, yourself. I’m sorry for not calling. Before showing up. Well, if you’re here to tell me that, Kristen’s out of prison. I already had the pleasure of running into her. It was a really nice surprise. Uh, did she threaten you or anything? No, it was fine. Okay. Okay, good. I’m sure she’ll be leaving you alone now that we’re no longer together.

Yeah. As always, Kristen got what she wanted. Well, I don’t wanna talk about Kristen. Listen, I uh, I have a proposition for you.

Thank you. Mm-hmm. You know, looking on the bright side like I always do, there’s a real upside to unemployment. Mm. And that would be, I don’t have to worry about keeping a clear head in the morning, cuz even hungover, I can still work the remote. Mm. Well, I still think you need to give Maggie some time to cool down and to see that Titan needs you.

Yeah. Well, I’m not gonna hold my breath screwing up that deal from Maggie. That was the last straw. Sad fact is my career at Titan is over.

Hi. Welcome home. It’s scared to be home. Victor’s, uh, he’s resting. He didn’t sleep at all on the plane. Yeah. I was surprised when I heard you were coming home. I thought you’d wanna stay on in Greece with Bo The doctors are moving him to a long-term care facility, so he’s still in a coma. Mm-hmm. We’re not giving up hope, though.

Of course not. You know, there’s just really nothing we could do there. And the thing is, for Victor not being able to do something was hell. I know that. So I finally convinced him to come home. Sing Bo like that. Hmm. It was hard on him. I understand. Family is everything. So what are you doing here?

Henderson told me that you and Bonnie were going to Chicago to see Mimi and, and Emily. Yes. Uh, Bonnie went. But um, when I heard you were coming home, I decided to stay here. You didn’t need to do that. Yes, I did because I needed to ask you why the hell you fired my son from the family business.

Surprise. Hello buddy. How I would’ve called, but I didn’t want You have to come up with an excuse, huh? So you, yeah. Well, I’m up to see Mimi and Emily and Mimi. Tell me tonight was your night with Emily and what were you doing just now You look like you’re about to audition to replace Captain America. I’m just working out.

Huh, soon as to be working for you. Well enough about you. Where’s Emily? Oh, let me get my sweet grand baby. I know. I’m so sorry. It’s late and she’s already asleep. Oh, darn it. Yeah. So, um, sorry you wasted the trip. Well, can, can I, can I just take a peek at her please? I won’t wake her up. Please listen. Okay.

Okay. I just. A peak, Ken’s first bedroom on your right. Oh, you’re a adult. Thank you. Thank you. Thank

about Grand Central Station.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Sarah wasn’t expecting you. I, I’m so sorry to show up like this, but I have news and I just, I had to tell you one person. Yeah, I have some news too, so, okay, so when you left, One of our patients in our clinical trial had a breakthrough. His immune system is responding just as we predicted it would. Really?

Yes. I ran the test three times and we did it. We did it. Oh my God, that’s so great. But listen, you, you have this, this is gonna change the way that we treat infectious diseases, Sarah. Bonnie’s here. Sarah Horton. Is that you?

Over my dead body. Come on Gwen. You’re desperate. We have to replace got bay s a desperate, not so desperate, to the point where we resort to hiring your girlfriend. Chloe’s not my girlfriend. We’re just roommates. Yeah, right. Well, you’re so interested in what’s going on with me and Chloe. I thought you were busy shagging Alex all the time.

Wow. Well that’s over now. He ended it. He indeed. Yeah. Something about. Wanting to be a better person or something. I don’t know. It’s all about the impossible dream. Look, if we can just go back to talking about what we were talking about. We need a qualified, seasoned sales professional to replace Gotley, not some outer work, bloody lounge singer.

Close an opera singer. Oh yeah. That changes everything, doesn’t it? Singing La Traviata isn’t exactly an MBA in three years experience like we are looking for, Chloe ran a successful restaurant and she’s had important jobs at Basic Black and Amara Enterprises. She’s more than qualified. Oh, brilliant. Well then she can get a job elsewhere, can’t she?

Because we are not hiring her at the Spectator. And that’s final.

Do you mind if I come in so we can talk about this? Do you wanna come in to talk about things or do you wanna come and check things out? How many times do I have to tell you? Xander and I are just, we’re all close. I don’t wanna talk about Xander. I don’t care about Xander. Okay. I have a business proposition for you.

I want you to come back to Basic Black.

I understand you’re upset with me. But you have no right to use that tone with me. What tone should I use? You canned my son over the phone because he didn’t follow direct orders, and as a result we lost a multimillion dollar deal, a deal that was already negotiated and all he had to do was close it. But what he did in reality was scare the client off.

Alex didn’t scare him off the deal. Did there were problems in that deal from the start? Really? Well, I guess that’s Alex’s version of what happened. He’s very good at coming up with excuses. It’s the other part of the job that he’s having trouble with. Hmm. So that’s your call, right? You’ve been a corporate mogul for all of what, five minutes.

Who are you to say that Alex isn’t qualified? Hmm. And there it is. That’s it, isn’t it? You don’t think I’m qualified? Well, the fact is, Victor die. And by the way, Justin, he agrees with me about Alex. Alex, you’re being too hard on yourself. You had no idea how the client was gonna behave at that meeting.

Maggie completely overreacted by firing you. He really thinks so. Yeah, I do. I think she might have a point here. You’re impossible. Do you want another beer? Yes, please. Thank you, and I’m sorry for being such a rotten company. Maybe uh, maybe you can talk to Dr. Evans about that. Yeah, I’ll get it.

Hi honey, I’m home.

Chad, you’re back. Hey. Yeah. I got in a couple hours ago. I talked to the kids and uh, came straight here.

I really missed you. Same. Tell me everything. I was worried. Uh, first Alex to, uh, what do we owe? The pleasure.

You want me to come back to work at Basic Block? I do. Look, Nicole is working with EJ at Damara. All right. And I’m all alone over there. And, I need you, Brady. I’m not sure. Wait, I promise if you come back, we’ll keep everything strictly professional. That’s easier said than done. You have my word on it. Look, it’s not, look, it’s not the same over there without you.

You know that we work well together. And you know that I respect your work and your work ethic and what you do over there at the base of black office. So come on, just please tell, say you will, Brady. I’m, I’m sorry, I can’t, if if it’s Kristen, don’t worry about it. I’ll beef up security. No, it’s not. Kristen, what’s the problem then?

It isn’t a problem. It’s just that I was offered a new job. I’ll be working at the spectator.

What is Xander?

Uh, the way I understand it. We run the spectators as a partnership. You don’t get to just make unilateral staffing decisions. You know what? You are absolutely right. We do run this business together, don’t we? And so that means I assume that we both want the most qualified candidate for the job. Is that right?

Right, right. So perfect. Then you and I can put a job notice up and then together we will choose the most qualified. Candidate for sales marketing director and Chloe is more than welcome to apply. It’s actually kind of sad. What is your jealousy? Just the thought of seeing Chloe and I working together is making you greener with envy than she hawk, isn’t it?

Oh God. For God’s sake, I am not jealous. Especially jealous of Chloe Bloody lane. Yeah, just keep telling yourself that,

Sarah. Aren’t you gonna turn around and say hi? Oh. Funny. Frankton told you were here. You didn’t let me. Oh, what are you doing in Chicago? Well, I came up to see Mimi and Emily and I’m sorry, but that handbag isn’t fooling anyone. One, there’s no luggage picking up to hide the fact that you’re knocked up, sweetie.

And like I said, I was at the meeting so I know that Alex was doing everything he could to save the deal. Yeah, I don’t think he really cares for stuff. Oh, man. No, no. I, uh, I realized that getting kicked out of the family business, man, it sucks, but damn What I mean, getting fired by Maggie. And they’d be like getting canned by, uh, Glen to the good witch.

It’s not funny. No, it’s not. It’s actually, that’s the worst part about it, is it’s just, it must have been so damn humiliating. You know, I’m gonna let you guys, uh, have a little alone time. Uh, thank you again. Stuff for the beer, Alex. Appreciate it. No, no, no. You know. No, you know what? He’s right. He’s, he’s right.

Maggie is just about the nicest person I’ve ever known. Yes. I just feel horrible about letting him down.

Okay. Did you really have to kick the guy while he is down? Okay. He’ll be fine. Trust me. What? Okay. Look, I’m sorry, I just, I just got back from Greece where Kate was almost killed, or your father was shot and Bob Brady is still in Tacoma. So, you know, I’m, I’m, I’m sorry if I don’t have the patience to come in here and, and see Alex pretending to cry in his beer over a job that, quite honestly, he never should have had in the first place.

He was a guest in my home. Why? I’m Stephanie. How can you forgive him after what he did to you?

Justin, I’m running a business letting Alex go. What’s a business decision? He asked me to give him a chance. I gave it to him regretfully, but he didn’t deliver. I don’t think it’s fair of you. To make this a family issue, to make it personal. This is a family business, Maggie. It’s all personal. Okay. Look, I understand that I can be a little protective of Alex.

Adrian and I did our best to keep things steady for him at home. But Angelica would swoop in and swoop out and I mean it’s, it’s no wonder that he seems to struggle in his relationships with women. In his personal life and in the workplace he’s in therapy. I’m sure you’re aware of that. Yes, he told me, but it doesn’t change the fact that I left him specific instructions on how to handle this meeting and he went rogue.

Okay, Maggie, look, I understand that Alex blew this deal by going rogue as you put it. But what’s killing him? It’s not that he lost the job, it’s letting you down. So isn’t there just some way that you can just give him one more chance?

Remind me to never play poker with Maggie. She sure knows how to keep her cards close to her. Vesta had no idea you were expecting, sweetie. Yeah, that’s cuz uh, she. Doesn’t know no one in Salem does. Oh, why not? You don’t have to answer that. You don’t want anyone to know because it’s Santa’s baby, isn’t it?

That’s what you wanna think. Isn’t it because it would already feed your huge ego to think that I’m jealous of Chloe la, which I am not. I don’t wanna hire that bloody dullard of a woman because she’s not qualified for the bloody job. And yet when I showed up here, you were desperate to get some anyone.

In place. I guess she just meant anyone but Chloe. Huh? Anyone who is qualified. She has qualified and she can start work immediately. Gwen, we don’t have time to recruit and screen candidates. I’m putting my foot down. I offer Chloe the job. It’s hers. End off

fine. Hire her. But when this turns out to be an absolutely unmitigated disaster, it’s coming outta your half of the profits. Agreed. You know, it is a pleasure as always, hashing things out with you partner. I’ll go tell Chloe the good news. Run along. Do that.

Bonnie, you’re way off face here. Oh, I don’t think so. Look how fast you left town after you found out Xander was up to his old tricks. You wanted him out of your life and out of your baby’s life too. No, you, you don’t understand, you know, you couldn’t trust him when there’s a baby. And you know how Kira, cuz men are, their children are everything to them.

And Xander would never leave you alone. Bonnie. She doesn’t need this right now. Okay? Trust me, honey. I know what you’re going through better than anyone. My ex-husband was a complete piece of work. But listen, I really truly believe that Xander has changed this time, the better. And if I could forgive him for kidnapping, me and Susan, this has nothing to do with Xander.

Yes, it does. Honey, he has every right to know that he’s the father of this baby. There’s nothing to do with Xander because he’s not the father. I.

You’re the father. Mm-hmm. Yes I am. Mimi didn’t tell me you too. Were back together because we’re not. So you had a one night stand? Um, Bonnie. Do you remember when I found out that Xander had hooked up with Gwen Right after I told him that our marriage was over? Yeah. Well, um, I slept with Rex on the rebound and I ended up pregnant.

We didn’t find out until we moved to Chicago and yeah, we, we tried dating, but it didn’t work. Oh, okay. So Forex as the father, why keep it a secret, especially from Maggie? Especially from her. I said I didn’t want her to judge me or tell me that I was making a mistake. You know how my mom can be. Yeah.

Forgiving and open-minded and sweet as the day is long. Sounds like you don’t believe us because I don’t, cuz I know you two are lying through your teeth,

John. My mom is back. Marlena is back. Kate is alive and safe. Is Alex really what we wanna talk about? No. Okay, so then can we please just rewind, I don’t want to talk about Alex anymore. It’s not like there’s nothing else that we can talk about.

You saved Kate, and I understand that you have a new relative, Dimitri Von Leischner, isn’t it? Yeah, he’s a very fun guy. He’s a lot like his, his mother, um, sociopathic . Him and his mom are, uh, They, like James Vaughn owns Mm, I don’t really want to talk about them either. Mm. In what the, uh, stock market, the Cubs,

uh, I don’t really want to talk about any that stuff. I, um,

Hey Glen. Hey. How yourself, oh, you think maybe you could hold up a minute? I was actually on my way to see you. Oh. You, um, rethinking all of that better person rubbish. Hmm. No, but I did hear a rumor that your ad director quit. And the thing is, I happen to now be looking for a job. A job. Mm-hmm. You have a job, you have a dream job.

Why would you ever leave Tyson? Well, I didn’t leave Titan. I got fired. Oh. Oh, that’s unfortunate. It is unfortunate. But as you know, I do have experience in marketing and I’m a damn good salesman. So yeah. Maybe Alex, I’m so sorry, but we’ve just hired a new ad director already. Yeah, it’s a shame too, because you would’ve been, you would’ve been quite good.

But, um, Zander’s forced me into hiring his roommate. Turns out he wants to spend even more time with her. You don’t really seem too happy about that? Well, aside from the fact that the person in question is unqualified inci and absolutely makes my skin crawl, no. Yeah, I’m thrilled. Hmm. Well, it sounds like you’re knight and is going just about as well as mine is.

Yeah. Sounds like.

Uh, maybe, maybe you and I could, I dunno, help each other get our minds off of our troubles.

So Xander offered you a job at Jack and Jennifer’s paper. It’s Xander and Gwen’s paper now. Yeah. Yeah, because they stole it. How does Gwen feel about all this? Gwen, she’s, she’s fine with it. Is this really what you want? I mean, you really want to be living with him and working with him. I’m not saying it’s ideal.

Ideal, Chloe, my God. I mean, Xander’s Ale, but he’s nothing compared to Gwen. I mean, you might want to consider hiring a food taster if you go to work for her. I heard she’s pretty rough on women who rub her the wrong way. Oh my God. Why are you doing this? And what business is it of yours where I’m working, Chloe?

They’re not only horrible people. They know nothing about running a newspaper. It’s not gonna be long before they tank the spectator, and I don’t want to see you get hurt in the fall out. Tell us how you really feely.

Sounds like you don’t believe us because it doesn’t make any sense. You two are doctors. You do know where babies come from. Even doctors have accidents. See, I don’t think it was an accident. I think you wanted to have a baby. Sanders’s baby, and I think you got pregnant with Sanders before you found out he was running around town kidnapping people in a damn clown city.

All you enough, this is none of your damn business.

Thank you for.

It’s not gonna work.

You’re right. Okay. The baby is.

Hello Xander. Guess I better go. Oh, no, no. Stick around. I get the feeling. You’re just getting started. You know Brady. Brady don’t. Okay. Okay. Um, Good luck with your new job. I have a feeling you’re gonna need it pop by anytime. It’s always a pleasure. Was that really necessary? What? Come home to find him talking crap about me in my living room.

I’m just supposed to take it. The maturing thing would’ve been to ignore him. Trudy’s never been my strong point. Has it? Yeah. I’ve noticed. Speaking of mature and rational people, how did Gwen take you? Offering me a job? Well, I think you should be more careful how you speak about one of your new employers.

Are you serious? What did I tell you? You’ve got the job,

Gwen. Um, I don’t know. Yeah, I forgot. You’ve turned a new leaf, haven’t you? No more random shags. How’s that working out for you? By the way? Are you down the road now to becoming the new and improved Alex Kakkis? It’s going well. Actually, Dr. Evans is helping me out a lot. That’s good. I’m glad. Mm. Well, thank you.

Now all I need now is somebody to help me get my career back on track. Yeah, well good luck with that and I will see you around or not. You’ll see me around.

Did I hear somebody say they needed to get their career back on track? Oh, there he is. It’s up. Brady, I didn’t hear you coming in. I wasn’t. He was dropping. But um, if you need a job, I may have something for you. Nicole left. I’m swamped at basic plaque. You want me to come work for you? Yeah. I mean, why not?

Look, it was your idea, right? To put Eric and Nicole on that cover to launch our new collection and that thing flew off the shelves. I think you, you got a natural knack for marketing. Well, I don’t know if Uncle Vic and Auntie Mag would agree with that. I’ll tell you about Grandpa Vic. For 30 years, he has dangled that c e o Titan position over all of us.

Hmm, I get carry on a stick. The best thing I ever did is get off that treadmill. Why don’t you declare your independence and why don’t you come work with me?

Justin, I’ve given Alex so many chances. I know, but this time. Will be different because I personally am gonna be watching him like a hawk. Becky. He really needs this. Ah, you carry us men. You just don’t give up until you get what you want. It’s in our dna. N So you’ll think about this? No, no, no. Okay. You win.

He can start tomorrow. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. This is his last chance. I swear, absolutely. You’ll not regret this. Oh, I hope not For all of our.

Thirsty. Oh, am I parched?

So tell me about this Dimitri guy. Well, thank you. He got here. He, um, he definitely has damara blooding him. He, uh, he managed to burn hostages from Unity, not only for himself, but for him and his mother. Who’s your half sister, right? Megan Hathaway. Mm-hmm. Yeah. Apparently my, uh, my father never wore protection.

So back to this Dimitri guy, maybe he got immunity, but he’s still on the issa’s radar. It’s only a matter of time before he commits a crime somewhere out there. And yeah. And then he loses his immunity. No, no, no. Not out there. He’s coming here to Salem. What? Oh yeah. I didn’t tell you that. Yeah, he wanted to fly on the same plane back here.

He thinks we’re gonna be best friends, but why? What’s there in Salem? He could want, I know. Family. At least that’s what he says. I mean, you didn’t take him in his word. No, I didn’t. No, I don’t, I don’t think he’s here to be a part of the family. I think he’s, uh, coming here to destroy it.

Dad thought you’re going to Chicago. What’s going on? Well, we have some good news, Maggie and I just. Had a long conversation and she has agreed to give you your job back. Really? Wow. That’s all you can say. Nothing like, thanks and Maggie, that’s so nice of you. Well, I’m sorry dad. It’s just been kind of a weird night.

It took me by surprise. When it rains and pours. Hey Alex. I just spent the better part of an hour trying to convince Maggie that you’re not a flake. So for me, can you just try not to act like one? Right.

Well, auntie Mag, I can’t tell you how happy it makes me that you think you can trust me again, but I’m not gonna be able to take back the job. What? Why not? Well, this just happened, but I have another job. Brady wants me to work for him at Basic Black

Minute. Hey, you have a minute. No, not after the way you talked to me the last time I had the pleasure. I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were that fragile. That was uncalled for. Sorry. Sorry. Cut. Go Gwen. Please. Please. I need to talk to you about a mutual problem that we have that only you can solve. Go on. I know you know that Xander offered Chloe a job at The Spectator, and my guess is you think that’s a terrible idea just like I do.

Yes, I do. Good. Then I can count on you to stop it from happening. Yeah. Sorry mate. That ship has sailed. I gave Zander permission to hire her. Oh my. Why did you do that? I dunno. You have to pick and choose your battles, both in life and in business, you know? So it turns out our exes are gonna be spending even more time with each other.

So Gwen is really okay with me coming to work at the Spectator. Well, she’s not exactly thrilled about it, but she gave the green light and she’ll come around when she sees how amazing you’re gonna be at the job. Plus, the only alternative is you go back to working with Brady and we can’t have that, can we?

I suppose we can’t. So welcome aboard Ms. Lang.

Sarah, what are you doing?

She’s onto us and there’s no sense in keeping of a lie.

You’re right. I did want a baby with Xander.

But that was before I found out what he did to you and Susan and before I found out that he was mixed up with Gwen Riz check again. I don’t wanna be married to a man like that, and I sure as hell don’t want him around an innocent child, Sarah. No, but nothing. Bonnie, this isn’t your news to tell. You have to promise me no one in Salem can find out that Xander is the father of my baby.

No one.

Previously on Ride, you don’t like the fact that Misty and I are getting close.

There’s Abel, you got all that memorabilia and it could be put to good use. We need to find an investor who believes in the possibilities like we do. How did you know? My husband? You don’t wanna know. Did he cheat on me? You are more than good enough. You took him from me. I just wanna know why

Recap written by Terry

Chance reported to DA Christine that dried tears on a program at Phyllis’ memorial matched the DNA from the blood found in the ambulance that crashed and burned while supposedly carrying Phyllis. Chris concluded it meant only mean one thing – Phyllis is alive. Chris became furious, stating that what Phyllis did was vindictive and vicious and was done to get back at one woman (Diane). Chris said Phyllis had no idea what she had unleashed and vowed to prosecute everyone involved in the scheme.

Summer met with her mother in her room to bring her food and personal items. Summer warned her not to leave. Phyllis asked her daughter if she trusted her, but Summer replied that she didn’t. Phyllis apologized for what she had put Summer and Daniel through and promised to make it up to them. Summer said that first they have to clear her name. “I didn’t do all this so you could go to prison,” Summer said. Earlier, in an effort to avoid prison, Phyllis searched online for something about the EMT that Jeremy Stark paid off, and for something to give her proof she was right to protect herself when she killed him.

Daniel told Lily that Phyllis is alive and that she killed Jeremy Stark in self defense after he attacked her. Lily was furious, saying a mother is supposed to protect her children and be a role model, but Phyllis let her kids think that she was dead and let them grieve. She said Phyllis was taking the easy way out and won’t come back until she faced zero consequences. Lily called her selfish and a coward. She told Daniel that while she did not support the choices of Summer and Phyllis, she supports Daniel because he loves them. Daniel said he did love them, but he didn’t know if that was enough anymore, unaware that Summer told her mother that repairing their relationship was not a priority now.

Earlier, at the Abbott mansion, Diane told Summer she was sorry for the stress her situation is causing Kyle and Summer and that she is there for them.

Victor apologized for his harsh statements against Chance, regarding the breakup of Chance and Abby’s marriage. Victor said he had a deeper understanding and that Chance had every reason to raise a fist against him. Chance replied that he would be foolish to try. Victor asked if the accusations against Diane were true. Chance said he could not comment on the investigation.

Nate met with Victor and asked if he, Nate, was in for a grilling (because he’s dating Victoria.) Victor said it was just a friendly catch-up. Nate thought he was meeting with Victor because Nick is completely opposed to Nate being in the company and with Victoria. Victor asked him what his intentions were regarding Victoria. Nate stated he had no intentions of undermining the company or Victoria.

Billy noticed a spring in Victoria’s step when he saw her at Crimson Lights. She admitted she was dating Nate, but she steered the conversation towards their children and the dinner that Johnny attended with Chelsea, Billy, Lily, Daniel, Lucy and Connor. Victoria said Lucy’s name came up a few times in conversation later, so Lucy must have made a real impression on Johnny. Billy said he felt something was in the air.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Lily: Hello. The only thing you’re gonna find at the bottom of that coffee cup is a case of the jitters.

[ Lily laughing ] Are you still not sleeping?

Daniel: Is it that obvious?

Lily: Well, only to the trained eye.

Daniel: Do you want a cup?

Lily: Um, no, I’m good. I’m gonna be charged and centered.

Daniel: Yoga?

Lily: Yeah. You wanna join me?

[ Daniel chuckling ] No? Okay.

[ Lily laughing ] You know you can always call me, right? Even if it’s the middle of the night. I really wish there was something I could do to help you.

Daniel: Would you, um, would you actually come up to my room for a minute? I gotta tell you something.

Phyllis: Every slug leaves a trail. Where’s your trail, stark? And will it help clear my name?

[ Phyllis sighing ]

Diane: Summer, where are you sneaking off to and what’s in all the bags?

Victor: Good morning, detective.

Chance: Morning.

Victor: How are you?

Chance: I’m all right. How’re you doing?

Victor: All right. You know, I often thought about our last few conversations and I now have a deep understanding of what happened between you and abby. So, if I said things to you that were hurtful, I apologize. You got every reason to raise a fist against me.

Chance: At you? I’d be foolish to try.

[ Victor chuckling ]

Victor: Anyway, I think you’re a good man. You do well. All right?

Chance: I appreciate that.

Victor: Okay. Before you go, let me ask you something else. The accusations against diane jenkins regarding the murder of phyllis summers, are they true?

Chance: I know this is not what you wanna hear, victor, but I am not at liberty to divulge any information about an open investigation.

Victor: So, this is your polite way of saying you won’t keep me in the loop?

Chance: It’s exactly what I’m saying.

Victor: All right. Have a good day.

Chance: You too.

Victor: Nate. Very good. Have a seat, old boy.

Nate: Thank you.

Victor: What a beautiful day outside. Now, I’m starving. What are you having?

Nate: Uh, just curious as to why I’m here. Is this a meeting about newman media or is this a barbecue and I’m what’s on the grill?

Victoria: Good morning, billy.

Billy: Ooh, la, la! What do we have here? Who the heck are you?

Victoria: Same me I’ve always been.

Billy: No, this is a decidedly different ms. Newman than I’ve seen in a very long time. You got a little pep in your step.

Victoria: Well, it could be the shoes. I had them flown in from milan.

Billy: I noticed the shoes. It’s not your shoes. No, this is–

Victoria: A woman on the top of her game. So, how’s everything going at jabot?

Billy: You’re trying to change the subject and I can’t let that happen because it’s me.

Victoria: You know, I was having such a lovely morning until I ran into you.

[ Billy chuckling ]

Billy: Just tell me what I wanna know and I’ll go away.

Victoria: Quietly?

Billy: You know me too well, just like I know you. So, this pep in your step, when do I get to meet the guy? I used to wait to run my dishwasher

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Victoria: All right. As a matter of fact, yes, I am seeing someone.

Billy: Well, now, look at you. That’s great. I’m very happy to hear that.

Victoria: Thank you.

Billy: Look, you went through hell with he-who-shall-not-be-named. Those shenanigans are enough to put anyone off of love and romance. So, who is the guy?

Victoria: It’s nate hastings.

Billy: That’s funny. Same name as the guy who’s living with elena dawson.

Victoria: He’s not anymore.

Billy: I should hope not.

Victoria: And before you say anything, billy, I have no intention of introducing him to the kids in the near future, so.

Billy: I hadn’t even gotten there yet, vic.

Victoria: Well, what happened to all of your support? The “way to go, victoria?” Am I about to get a ticket from the billy abbott morality police?

Summer: Oh, um, I was just getting donations together for the clothing drive at the women’s center.

Diane: Oh, how charitable of you? I– I wish I would’ve known. I’m sure there’s a few things I could have added.

Summer: Well, they do it a few times a year, so. Uh, and this one actually is just for kids’ clothes, so.

Diane: Oh, I see.

Summer: I’ll let you know next time.

Diane: Oh, please do. You know, I wish I could go with you and help out. I’m going crazy stuck in this house.

Summer: It’s just as well, because I– I think I’m gonna go for a long drive afterwards to clear my head, you know.

Diane: Of course. Summer, I don’t mean to keep you.

Summer: What’s up?

Diane: I’m sorry. I’m sure you’re wondering what I’m apologizing for, but I’m sorry that my situation is causing so much stress between you and kyle.

Summer: Kyle and I are gonna be fine.

Diane: Well, just know that I want this case resolved as much as you do. More even.

Summer: I’m sure that you do, diane.

Diane: Yeah. And while I have my own issues with your mother and the horrible position that she’s put us all in, especially you, I want you to know that I– I do still care for you. And I am here for you and kyle, whatever you need, just let me know.

Summer: Thanks.

Daniel: Thank you for giving me a minute. I don’t even know how to say this.

Lily: That’s okay. Is it about lucy?

Daniel: No, she couldn’t be better.

Lily: Okay. Good. Is it work? And I’m– I’m asking as your friend, not your boss.

Daniel: We are on schedule and under budget.

Lily: Okay. Good. I love hearing that.

[ Lily laughing ] It’s about your mom?

Daniel: That’s the one. Yeah. That whole general area right there.

Lily: Yeah. What’s going on?

Daniel: Did you notice that I haven’t been grieving as much as I was when we first heard about what happened?

Lily: Well, I mean, everyone grieves differently. That’s natural.

Daniel: No, there is nothing natural about it and that’s the whole point. There are things that have happened that I had no control over, but I did not do something and I regret it.

Lily: What did you not do?

Daniel: I did not tell you the truth. And it’s only because I was sworn to secrecy and I don’t know. The whole thing is just driving me crazy.

Lily: Okay, daniel, what’s going on? What happened?

Daniel: My mother is alive.

Daniel: So that’s, um, that’s the whole story for now. Can you say something please?

[ Lily exhaling ]

Lily: I– I don’t think I can, ’cause I think if I do, you’re gonna end up hating me.

Daniel: No, never.

Lily: Daniel, like what? Like what– what world does your mother think it’s okay to fake her own death?

Daniel: I mean, in her defense–

Lily: Are you– are you being serious right now?

Daniel: She wanted to end the charade, but stark stopped her. I mean, he tried to kill her, so she had to stop him first.

Lily: Sorry. Stop him how?

Daniel: It was self-defense.

Lily: Wait, are you telling me that she killed jeremy stark?

Daniel: He attacked her first. He attacked her first.

Lily: I– I– I– I– I don’t even know what to say. Nope. Not gonna say anything. It’s your mother. You thought she was gone and you’re happy she’s back and that’s your priority.

Daniel: Listen, I brought you here because I wanna hear what you have to say.

Lily: Daniel, this is not what a mother does. A mother protects her children and behaves in a way to show her children how to behave in the world, whether you’re an adult or a child. She let you think that she was dead. She let you grieve and then she kills jeremy’s stark? She frames diane. She won’t come home to clear diane until she’s sure that she’s off scot-free. I am sorry, but your mother is selfish and she’s a coward.

Victor: Now, this is not a grilling, it’s a friendly catch up. It’s been a while.

Nate: It has.

Victor: You’ve seen our family go through ups and downs. We have known you for a while.

Nate: Things were, uh, complicated then.

Victor: Yeah, that’s putting it mildly. So, you’ve learned how our family operates.

Nate: I’m gonna take a stab in the dark. I’m here because nick is opposed to me on every level. Not only does he want me out of newman media because of sally, now, he’s questioning my character.

Victor: I form my own opinion about people, nate.

Nate: I appreciate that about you.

Victor: So, it’s no secret that your relationship with my daughter, victoria, has gone beyond the professional.

Nate: This is true.

Victor: But as her father, you can imagine that I would like to know a bit more about you personally. What do you think?

Nate: I like that very much.

Billy: So, I’m a hypocrite for having an opinion about nate?

Victoria: Oh, having it is one thing, but sharing it with me, that’s another thing.

Billy: Okay, fair enough. The view from my glasshouse is legendary. So, how about this? I’ll put down my sticks and stones if you do the same thing. No talk of romance or relationships or any of that. We’ll talk about the kids. How about them kids, huh?

Victoria: Let’s talk about the kids, yeah. You know, johnny, he, um, he’s been going on and on about this big family dinner that you had the other night.

Billy: Yeah. Crazy times.

Victoria: Yeah. You wanna remind me of that eclectic guest list again? It was your ex and her current and your girlfriend and johnny and connor and daniel’s daughter.

Billy: All came out of the blue.

Victoria: Yeah. Well, I can’t see anybody wanting to plan that on purpose.

Billy: It was the spur of the moment and we went with it.

Victoria: That’s nice.

Billy: You actually sound like you mean that.

Victoria: I do. I’ve heard lucy’s name mentioned around the house a few times, so i guess she’s made a real impression on our son.

Billy: Yeah. Felt like there was a little something in the air. How about that? We’re all following our hearts, as it should be. ‘Cause you never know who life is gonna throw your way.

Victoria: Yeah, that’s true. God knows I didn’t– I didn’t see this coming–

Billy: Careful. This is a risky conversation. But since you brought it up, are you happy?

Victoria: I’m very happy.

Billy: Then, I’m happy for you.

Victoria: Thank you. Because at this point I would hate to have to hide anything in my life. And work and family and personal, it just– it keeps getting better and better.

Chance: What’s new in the lab? Please tell me you’re calling about that miracle I asked you to work? Yeah. What do you got? Walk me through it. Okay. Yeah. What do you know? Okay. Yeah. Thank you. I, uh, I owe you big time. Dinner it is. Absolutely. Yeah. You’re the best. We’ll see you.

Phyllis: Everybody leaves breadcrumbs, stark. Everyone. There’s gotta be some sketchy search or some email you forgot to encrypt. Something that gives me proof that I did the right thing by defending myself. I’ll find it.

[ Door knob jiggling ] Oh, it’s you. Good, good, good. Oh, my gosh. I missed you. Not just because I’m starting to talk to myself and I am really starting to talk to myself, just so you know. Are you okay?

Summer: Yeah, I’ve been better.

Phyllis: Oh, all right. Good. I’m glad you’re okay. So, so…

[ Summer exhaling ] Did anyone see you in the lobby?

Summer: No, I took the stairs.

Phyllis: Okay, good.

Summer: What have you found out?

Phyllis: Um, I’m trying to find out something about that emt guy.

Summer: The one that stark paid off?

Phyllis: Yeah, his name is carson.

Summer: Oh, I’m sure that stark paid really well. He’s probably living on a tropical island by now.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, it’s not a lost cause. We can still find some proof.

[ Laughs ] So, um, talk to me about, you know, your monster in-law. I mean, is she just in all her glory wrecking me over the coals because she knows I’m alive?

Summer: She restrains herself.

Phyllis: Hm. Does she? There are other ways to be awful. Trust me. What about christine? She still doesn’t buy daniel’s story that I’m alive?

Summer: Oh, my god, daniel. I–

Phyllis: Oh, my god, daniel what?

Summer: I don’t wanna talk about him, okay? He opened his big mouth to the wrong people.

Phyllis: Okay. Well, I mean, I understand what you’re saying and I have a problem with him doing that too. I mean, I would’ve loved to have more time to come up with a plaN.

Summer: What we needed was an ironclad justification for what you did. That was supposed to be step one.

Phyllis: Let’s look at things from daniel’s perspective, okay? Let’s just–

Summer: No. I don’t wanna look at it from daniel’s perspective. I don’t– I don’t understand his perspective and I’m never going to. Ultomiris is for adults with generalized myasthenia gravis

Phyllis: All right. Sorry. I don’t wanna tell you how to think or feel. You’re an adult. I just hate it that my kids are at odds, that’s all.

Summer: I just don’t– I don’t understand why he’s so infuriating. I– I literally asked him to do the simplest thing.

Phyllis: Well, it’s because he’s danny’s son. And danny has a moral compass that’s just stuck at do the right thing.

Summer: What does that say about ours?

Phyllis: Well, our moral compass is sort of like, uh, you know, do what you have to do. Do what’s necessary to get the job done. Listen, if you both had been raised by me, daniel would be, you know, more like us. You know, more shoot from the hip, more flexible.

Summer: Didn’t turn out that way, did it?

Phyllis: No. But you know what? We’re a family. We are a family, summer. And sometimes we disagree and we fight and we do the wrong thing, but we make up. I mean, look at me. I came back from the dead. Anything can happen, so.

Summer: Mom, I sincerely hope that you have a backup plan.

Phyllis: Obviously, I have a backup plan.

Summer: One that doesn’t involve you disappearing if things don’t go your way?

Phyllis: Yeah. You know what I wanna do? I wanna repair what’s been broken. I did this. I ruined the relationship between you and your brother, okay? I wanna repair that. I mean, I cannot believe that I’ve put you guys in this position, all right?

Summer: Mom, what you need to do is focus on clearing your name so that you can come back to us for real. My relationship with him, it’s not a priority.

Lily: Look, I’m sorry. That came out a lot harsher than I meant it to.

Daniel: No. No. I mean, if we can’t be honest with each other, why even bother, right?

Lily: Look, I understand your mom’s instinct to wanna run away from what’s coming for her, but at some point, you have to face your fears. And what she’s doing is she’s taking the easy way out.

Daniel: She’s not gonna stay gone forever.

Lily: No. Just until she faces zero consequences.

Daniel: She’s coming back one way or the other.

Lily: Really? Are you sure?

Daniel: Yeah. I have to be sure because, you know, the alternative is… it’s unthinkable.

Lily: God, I– I hate what her choices are doing to you.

Daniel: What was it like for you? After the accident with hilary. Going to prison.

Lily: It was awful, you know. I didn’t wanna go, but I knew that I wouldn’t be able to look at myself or look devon in the eyes again if I didn’t pay for what I did. Like someone died because of my actions. There has to be consequences to that.

Daniel: Prison must have been brutal.

Lily: Yeah, of course, but, you know, there’s a silver lining to everything. And I met a lot of amazing women. You know, I got to help a few and– and I came out stronger for it.

Daniel: Not many people would’ve done what you did.

Lily: I don’t think that’s true, daniel.

Daniel: Look at my mother. I mean, she’s willing to frame an innocent woman and let her go to prison for murder, and summer, summer’s not much better. She’s following right behind mom in her footsteps.

Lily: Absolutely. I agree with you. And I do not respect their choices, but I support you and I know that you love them.

Daniel: Yeah, I do love them, but I don’t know if that’s enough anymore. I mean, how the heck are we supposed to ever be a family again?

Victor: If I hadn’t seen that with my own eyes, I wouldn’t have believed it.

Nate: That is an incredible story.

Victor: I know, right? Another example of how life can surprise you when you least expect it, you know?

Nate: Truer words were never spoken.

Victor: That’s right.

Nate: You know, um, I know you’ve heard this a thousand times, but you’re the reason I enrolled in business courses in college.

Victor: You serious?

Nate: Yes. I– I picked up a copy of your biography, man and myth.

Victor: That was from another lifetime.

Nate: I wanted to learn more about the company and the man that meant so much to neil.

Victor: Yeah, well, neil was one of the few men I trusted, you know?

Nate: Yeah.

Victor: He was a good friend.

Nate: Yeah. Deeply missed. And, uh, as I got deeper and learned more about your life, what struck me was how you managed to create so much, build so many companies from practically nothing

Victor: Got lucky.

Nate: [ Laughs ] I’d say it’s more than that. But I admire your modesty, as well as the way you’ve nurtured and raised your daughter.

Victor: So, just cut to the chase, nate. What are your plans for my daughter?

Christine: Hey, I got your message. You said you had news?

Chance: I just got off the phone with the lab.

Christine: So, the results are in? Okay. Break it to me gently. How bad is it?

Chance: You might wanna sit down for this. Hi.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue. Hi.

Nate: You’re, uh, asking my intention vis a vis victoria?

Victor: You’ve known her for years. In fact, you were best man at her wedding to ashland locke.

Nate: I wish I’d known then what I know now.

Victor: Don’t we all?

Nate: I know a few ceos and even fewer surgeons who are shrinking violets. I think what led me to medicine was my mother. I wanted to follow the example she set, so when I learned I couldn’t operate anymore, um, I felt I needed a new outlet.

Victor: Ah. Let me ask you, doing surgery must be incredibly stressful.

Nate: Indeed, it was. Yeah. But I– I lost that gift and found I had another in business.

Victor: Uh-huh.

Nate: And victoria has been a big part of that. Her support, her faith in me. She accepts me for who I am and where I am. It’s been, um, it’s been a hard road lately. I’m not sure how much you’ve heard.

Victor: Some.

Nate: Mm-hmm. When your family turns their backs on you, when they revile you, say you’re bringing shame to the name that you’re different.

Victor: And you feel less than appreciated.

Nate: [ Laughs ] Exactly. So, it’s reassuring to be appreciated so fearlessly.

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nate: I need people like her in my life.

Victor: Now, you know what she had to endure during her marriage with ashland locke.

Nate: Oh, I would never undermine her or the company in any way. Hell, she’d never allow it, neither would you.

Lily: Forget about my feelings about phyllis and summer and what they did, okay? What matters is you helping your sister get your mom back here to clear diane, okay? Do it for diane. Do it for yourselves. It’s the only way to move forward.

Daniel: Yeah. What mom did–

Lily: Let a judge and jury decide what should happen.

Daniel: There’s no way summer or mom are gonna let that happen.

Lily: Well, you know what? You’re not responsible for their choices. You’re responsible for your own. And that includes you mending things with your sister.

Daniel: Summer doesn’t want anything to do with me.

Lily: Why not?

Daniel: Because I opened the vault. I told everyone that mom was alive.

Lily: Yeah. You were just doing what you thought was best for your mom.

Daniel: Exactly. I mean, I thought michael could come up with a solid self-defense case while diane was being cleared of the charges against her.

Lily: Okay. Look, just let michael deal with the legal stuff. All that matters right now is you fixing things between the three of you. You will never regret giving someone forgiveness and grace because that’s who you are.

Summer: You know what? There’s a lot that I would do for you, a lot. Because you’re my mom and I love you, but I’m– I’m sorry you don’t get to dictate how I feel about your other child.

Phyllis: My other child? Seriously? You won’t even say his name? Summer, what is this? This is not nothing.

Summer: What we need to focus on right now is this mess that you’ve created.

Phyllis: That jeremy stark created. I was manipulated.

Summer: Yeah. Your husband.

Phyllis: Summer, I made a mistake.

Summer: Mom, this mistake– this mistake is gonna land you in prison if we don’t get this right.

Phyllis: That laptop right there, that’s gonna bolster my case.

Summer: Okay. Well, I would hope that you’d be doing more than online shopping on this thing, so it’s good.

Phyllis: I got that at a pawn shop.

[ Chuckles ] Ask me about the wisconsin penal code. I know it by heart, by the way.

Summer: Is there anything in there that would help you?

Phyllis: Well, I haven’t come up with anything yet, but I’m doing research on, you know, jeremy stark’s emails. I’m doing a deep dive.

Summer: Okay. Anything there that would prove your case?

Phyllis: To support my claim of self-defense? That’s what you mean, right?

Summer: Yes.

Phyllis: No, I haven’t found anything yet. Summer, I will. Summer, you gotta trust me. And we gotta think smarter. You know why?

Summer: Tell me.

Phyllis: Because the two of us together are way smarter than jeremy stark ever was. And there is something out there that will get me off the hook for this. I know it and we will find it.

Chance: The program from phyllis’s memorial was covered in prints. And miracle of all miracles, we managed to get dna results from the tear stains.

Christine: And what did they tell you?

Chance: Everything is a match for the deceased.

[ Diane sighing ]

Billy: Hi.

Diane: Hey.

Billy: How you doing?

Diane: I’m good. How about you?

Billy: Good. Good. Is, uh, is the man of the manor home?

Diane: Oh, no, no, no. He went off on an adventure.

Billy: An adventure? For what?

Diane: Oh, precious treasure. He’s buying me a book.

[ Laughs ] Can you imagine the sites he’s going to see today? People on the street enjoying their day, cars passing by. Bits of conversation that have nothing to do with my court case.

Billy: Sounds like you need to get out more.

Diane: Yeah. Tell it to my ankle monitor. So, what brings you by?

Billy: I just wanted to talk to jack, little bit of jabot business.

Diane: Oh. Well, tell me everything. How’s it going for you there?

Billy: Sounds like you’re running outta ways to spend your time, huh? You know, I have a whole list of podcasts you can listen to.

Diane: Oh, true crime? Not my thing f or obvious reasons.

Billy: That’s good. You’re still working on your gallows humor.

Diane: Yeah, it comes with the territory, you know?

Billy: So, what’s going on there? Any new developments?

Diane: Same old, same old. I am still innocent and I can’t wait for everyone else to know that too.

Billy: Well, how do we make that happen? Because if you don’t rise up out of this as a free woman, it could very well destroy my brother and quite possibly my entire family.

Victor: Well, nate, this has been edifying. Thank you for your candor.

Nate: It’s been my pleasure. I always enjoy spending time with you, victor, with the icon and with the man.

Victor: I’m sure we’ll see each other soon again?

Nate: Count on it.

Victor: All right.

Victoria: What did I miss?

Victor: What do you mean? What did– were you spying on us? You could have joined us.

Victoria: No, I wasn’T. I was walking back to the office and I saw the two of you talking. I didn’t wanna intrude. It looked important.

Victor: It was.

Victoria: Well, are you gonna tell me anything else about the results of your grilling?

Victor: Why do you always assume that I grill people? Can’t I just have a normal conversation with someone?

Victoria: [ Laughs ] No, not that I know of. So?

Victor: He’s all right. He’s a good guy.

Victoria: Yeah, he’s driven. He’s very ambitious.

Victor: Well, now those are qualities that I really appreciate, unlike your brother.

Victoria: But do you approve of us, daddy?

Victor: You don’t need my approval. Yes, I do.

Chance: So, they matched the dna from the tear stains to the blood sample that was recovered from the crash. And as for the prints–

Christine: Yeah. Well, for all the time she’s been brought up on charges, her fingerprints are definitely in the system.

Chance: A match.

Christine: So, what’s the rest of the bad news?

Chance: Since the programs from the memorial were printed after her death–

Christine: It can only mean one thing. Phyllis is alive. Oh, how I would love to get my hands on phyllis summers. Don’t you quote me on that.

Chance: Didn’t hear a thing.

Christine: I– I’m glad she’s alive, but I’ve never wanted to kill someone as much as I wanna murder her right now.

Chance: It was a lot simpler when she was dead. This is off the record, by the way.

Christine: Damn it, phyllis. This was supposed to be my great return to the prosecutor’s office, and she engineered this whole thing. What in the hell was she thinking? And now you’re telling me she did actually show up at her memorial? Think about that. She watched her family grieve and give their eulogies and cried. I mean, what kind of narcissistic, self-absorbed, twisted personality does such a thing?

Chance: She could have got the programs from stark.

Christine: Oh, and cried afterwards? Why? Because she was so moved by the type setting?

Chance: Maybe her conscience was getting to her after she thought about what she did.

Christine: I mean, think about it. She did all of this, all of it to make one woman suffer. It was vindictive. It was vicious. And if she went to all this trouble to fake her death, you can be damn sure she went to that memorial. She watched it play out. God, I wish I had thought and believed that phyllis was alive.

Chance: And the plan was for me to keep eyes on the suspect. I didn’t know I was supposed to watch out for the victim too.

Christine: You know what really gets me? All these big fish in the small pond, bending the law to fit their needs, they want us to protect them and give them resources when a crime is committed against them, but when they’re the ones that cross the line, no, they want us to look the other way. Well, forget it. I am gonna make sure they all get the justice they deserve.

Daniel: There is, uh, something that we haven’t discussed.

Lily: What is it?

Daniel: How good are you at keeping secrets?

Lily: Daniel, I’m not gonna say anything to anyone. I promise you.

Daniel: You have this quality that makes me wanna tell you things. I’m just wondering if I should ignore that voice in the back of my head.

Lily: Look, I am here to support you, but from what you told me, I’m not the only one who knows about this. So when it goes public, there will be fallout.

Daniel: Yeah, I know. I thought about that. No one’s gonna come out at this looking good, including me.

Lily: Look, I’m here for you, okay? I know who you are.

Phyllis: This is all extraordinary. All of these snacks.

[ Phyllis laughing ]

Summer: Guess everything tastes better when you’re in hiding.

Phyllis: Well, you know what? I was right when I called you my secret weapon. You are. You know all the foods that I love, even the products I love.

Summer: Mom, those are your products that you left at the grand phoenix when, you know.

Phyllis: Oh, when diane poisoned me and I died? Okay. Listen, I’m not trying to make a joke. I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what I did. And I want you to know I’m going to spend the rest of my very long life trying to make it up to you and your brother.

Summer: Focus on clearing your name so you actually can come back to life, okay? I didn’t do all of this just so you could go to prison.

Phyllis: All right. I’ll do my best.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: But for the time being, this room, this is your prison cell, okay? Until further notice. I– I’m serious, mom. Don’t leave this room for any reason.

Phyllis: You don’t trust me?

Summer: No. Stay put.

Diane: She who laughs last laughs loudest. Just wait and see.

Billy: Do you have a judge in your pocket?

Diane: Better. I have truth on my side.

Billy: I’m sure half of the people in prison say the same thing, so… what is it? Do you know something that your lawyers don’t?

Diane: Just this, I have no intention of going to prison for phyllis’s murder. They’ll clear my name. They have to. My future with jack depends on it.

Christine: Phyllis and stark did all of this. They fabricated and planted the evidence that directed us right to diane.

Chance: Yeah, a lot of work went into this plan.

Christine: They had the entire town grieving. They exploited the services of the emergency medical team. And don’t even get me started on the storm they created at the morgue. It’s reprehensible and chance, it’s just the beginning.

Chance: Does this mean you’re buying the evidence?

Christine: I can’t ignore the obvious. Phyllis is alive and she has no idea what she’s unleashed.

This seat taken cowboy? Yes. I’m waiting on my dates. Oh, Wilson. She or he or they isn’t or aren’t here yet. Perhaps you’d like to give Lady Whistleblower the inside scoop on your recent family drama. What recent drama haven’t you heard? You’re indefatigable, auntie Kristen. I think that’s the appropriate adjective.

Bit of a mouthful. But anyway, she was released from prison. What again? What did, did she get another pardon? Mm-hmm. Immunity. It’s like a revolving door with her, isn’t it? One minute she’s in. The next minute she’s out. But that is boring. Boring and old news. I am way more interested in your other Aunt Megan Hathaway.

I think it’s long overdue that I take the family name. After all, I’m not a half the way. The purpose of that name was served long ago. I am now claiming to be a dememer completely and entirely,

uh, here, here. To Megan Dira. Cheers. Cheers. Thank you both for your lovely words on behalf of the family and now ej. That is something I’d like to say to you.

Well, fine. You figured it out. You’re a genius. Okay, but please, Tony. You can’t tell a soul. No. Tony, I can’t let you do this.

Hey, you. How you doing here? It’s nice to see you. Yeah, you too. I knew you’d be tending to your brother most of the day, so I thought I’d stop by and see if you needed anything. That’s very sweet of you, but I’m okay. And Collin is, he’s fine too. Good. So what are you two up to? Hmm? What do you mean? Well, when I came around the corner, I found the two of you with your heads together that seemed to be very interested in that box.

So what’s in it? It’s a medical test kit. A a test for what?

Like Sam through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

A test for a virus. A a virus. Yes. There was an outbreak on the 10th floor. I mean, it’s contained now, but to protect all the other patients from getting it, the visitors for the next 24 hours have to test negative before they let ’em in. Wow. That’s crazy. Yeah. So I, I was gonna share one of my tests with Sloan.

You know, since the hospital is low on supply, otherwise she wouldn’t. Be able to see your brother and as generous as Nicole’s offer is. I, I have to decline because I, I really think you should. No, you should have that test, Eric. Me. Why? Because me carver’s a family friend. I mean, despite my own feelings about his family, I’m sure you’d like to visit him.

What do you think, Nicole? Yeah, I, I think it makes sense. Yeah. You know what, Eric, why don’t you take a test right now and I’ll bring it straight to the lab.

Anna Wooden Gold’s name is wrong with you. I think she’s been guzzling too much wine at the bar again, excuse you. I am perfectly sober. My husband, on the other hand, obviously knocked back one too many at the bistro. What I’ve seen so sober as a judge to me. Well, that’s because I am, well, Kristin, you don’t know him like I do.

He’s obviously. Sous love Billy’s sake, and when he gets like this, he makes unwise decisions and I wouldn’t want him to say anything that he will regret later. Damn it, Anna. Anna, I think it’s adorable that you’re so protective of Tony, but we’re all family here and we should feel free to say whatever we want to each other.

Absolutely. You have the floor brother.

So tell me about Auntie May. I heard everyone thought she kicked the bucket in a hot tub incident back in the eighties. You’re asking the wrong guy. I’ve, I’ve never even met the woman. Hey, sorry, I’m looking for this slate. Hey, that’s okay. Wait a minute. Your Johnny’s date. Yes. Why?

I just assumed it would be Chanel Dupree.

What the hell, man? Like I told you before, there is nothing going on between Chanel and me. It’s history. Well, history has a way of repeating itself, so the engagement is definitely off. Oh, for God’s sake, it was never on. All right. I’m dating Wendy. Okay. My mistake. It is just so hard to keep up with things around here.

People change partners the way they change underwear. And speaking of flip flopping shin, did you really believe Johnny’s? I was high on Biscuit story. Well, Johnny wouldn’t lie to me, so yes I did. Not that it’s any of your business. So you believe he only has eyes for you? She believes it because it’s true.

Oh, that is so sweet. Too bad my shin doesn’t feel the same way. What the hell? What are you squawking on about now? My spies. Uh, Sources tell me that Ms. Shin ran off to Seattle to be with Trip Johnson, but since you’re back here now back to knock him back with this fine chap, does that mean that you’ve dumped the Good Doctor?

Was his bedside manner lacking? Oh my God, no. Of course not. Okay, so it’s double your pleasure. Double your fun. You little makes.

Well, what is it you wanted to tell me, Tony?

To be perfectly honest, I thought you deserved a toast in your honor as well, Jay, A toast or a roast, because I completely agree on the roast. I, I’ll get it started. I said a toast. Over the last seven months. Ejs done a tremendous job as c e o. You mean as Co c o Stefan, we all know that you’ve been promoted recently, but I’m talking before that.

EJ was doing very nicely on his own. As a matter of fact, under his leadership, Demer Enterprises has attained tremendous heights. Ah, you are right, Anna. He’s completely wasted. Sorry, just Megan, you haven’t been around to witness the ups and downs of Demira over the years, but trust me when I say that ej.

Is best suited for the job and it would be wise of you to wholeheartedly support him. You as well, Kristin, quite an endorsement. Indeed. Perhaps it would be prudent to just skip the actual toast. You’ve made your point, Tony. Ej. Artie thinks she’s the second coming. Tony, darling. Now that you’ve said your peace, may I have a word with you in private, why make a.

Come darling.

Well, I can see that Anna is still quite the drama queen. Tony, what were you thinking? I asked you not to tell EJ about Nicole’s pregnancy, and yet you were ready to blab that news in front of everyone. Oh, heaven’s sake. I’m just gonna do nothing in the sort. Oh, don’t play innocent with me. I’m just glad I got you to back down.

And thank God you came up with that cover story, Anna. You know, if you would just calm down and listen to me for a change. It was not a cover story. I said what I intended to say in the first place. Oh, you did? Did you? Yes. There’s a power struggle going on in there between EJ and Steph. I’m fine for my sister’s votes.

I just wanted to make it clear that I support ej. Really? Yes. Really. So you were not planning to expose Nicole’s secret? No, I was not. But you almost did that on your own.

Yeah. Thank you. But no, it wouldn’t be right. I. Tests seem to be scarce, so I’d much rather slow down it. Oh look, I was with my brother earlier. Really? I can’t wait to see him, but you shouldn’t have to as much as I’d like to see am I think it’s more important that you’d be with your family. Okay. If you insist.

I, I do listen. How about I just meet you back at your place? Great. Okay. I’ll see you too later.

Damn. Well it was a good idea I that it failed miserably and now we’re back to the same problem. This is not a problem. It’s. It’s impossibility. Try getting a cheek swab from someone without explaining to them why. Look, Sloan Moon is forcing you to help me. You can still back out. No, no. I’ve invested interest in this too.

Obviously, since my boyfriend can be your baby daddy.

I pray to God he’s not

okay. I am sorry. I doubted you sweetheart. There’s nothing new there. Oh, come on. Give me a break. I mean, when we were at the bistro, you seem to be on the fence about it and I had just promised Nicole that I wouldn’t tell a soul that she would, you know, in the family way. I still don’t feel right about this, and I’m still on the fence as you put it.

EJ has a right to know, a right to know what.

Look, you’re making Wendy very uncomfortable. Okay? Oh, come on. I’m just having fun with her. No, you are making fun of me. There’s a big difference, sweetie. Relax. Everybody loves a good love triangle. Just ask Olivia Wild. She hasn’t been this relevant since well ever. Okay. Can you make him go away please? So tell me, did you serve your special salad dressing to trip Johnny?

Both. I don’t know what that means, but if you print a word of this, I will hack into all of your accounts and make your life a living hell. Good thing I make a point to always delete my search history. Oh, good thing. Nothing on a computer is ever really deleted. There’s no need to get Tessie. Honey. I am on your side.

On my side. Well, how the hell are you on my side? Because I sympathize with your conundrum. God, I love that word. Anyway, I understand why you are torn between these two men. They are both super hot, although I would say that trip probably has a slight advantage. No, just shut up. Okay. He’s a successful doctor.

Good with his hands. Valuable member of society. Where’s Johnny here? I mean, even though he is swimming in Dir, money is basically just in. Out of work, Dante. Oh, okay. Well that’s, it looks like I lost, struck the nerve now. Okay. Hey, I heard that Gabby and your brother filed for divorce. Please feel free to give Lee my number.

And is it true that Gabby and Stephan are already engaged?

I said I wouldn’t trust a word. Tony says, uh, not only does he have a screw loose, he’s completely biased. It’s basically e j’s lap dog. Yeah, I mean, have you seen the way these two fawn over each other? It’s nauseating. I mean, it’s like, come on, get a room. It’s a big crass considering they’re brothers. I didn’t mean it literally, they’re not related by blood.

By the way, let’s not forget that Tony’s the gardener son, not to mention he’s hooked up with one of his siblings. You mean Renee? Actually, I was talking about Kristen, you and Tony. Relax it, uh, was more or less an arranged marriage set up by father, and the man that I married turned out to be Andre. Kevin, eventually you did marry Tony when you were pretending to be Nicole, and as I recall, you use that marriage of convenience to seize control at Dera.

But that’s fine. That’s forgiven and forgotten. Well, obviously not forgotten. However, we would love to work with you two very impressive sisters to ensure our family and the company’s very bright future. But to do that, we need to have Stephan solely in charge of Dara because, because he is more in tune with the.

Today’s modern world in either one of his brothers, so trust us. If you want Damara to thrive for decades to come, you need to back my brilliant fiance

out with you two. What is it that I have a right to know? Well, Anna thought that my speech before was somewhat impolitic in that I seem to be stirring the flames of your rivalry with Stephan. Oh, come now. That ship was sailed. He’s had his sight set on ousting me from the moment he returned to the land of the living.

My lover of was what I was trying to argue and that it was important that. I was proud to say that I am firmly in your corner and I sincerely appreciate that Tony and this family full of liars and vultures. It’s good to know that you’ve always hurt my back.

I am all for whatever is best for the company, but I do have to ask, what is it that you two can do for me? First off, we’ll welcome you back into this family where you belong with open arms. Make you feel at home. You’re not gonna get that from me, Jay. Believe me, he’s only looking out for himself. He won’t sacrifice a damn thing for you, not the way that Stephanie and I will.

Oh, that is simply not true. Gabby, I’m sure Megan sees through your malicious spin on my relationship with my family and this company. Furthermore, I’m sure she knows that I am more than happy to do whatever it takes to make our beloved sister feel welcomed and valued. In fact, Megan, in regard to the former, I’m willing to turn over my master suite to you after being locked up in Statesville.

I think you deserve the largest room in the house, which also boasts the best of you.

I was locked up in Stayville too, you know? Ah, yes. But Megan has seen your. Otherwise, I would’ve of course offered you the room, Krista. Mm-hmm. Of course, of course. Don’t sweat at Elvis. I wouldn’t accept your offer anyway. Not after you stabbed me in the back.

I just hated lying to eat. J just now. Oh darling, that’s because you are a kind and decent man, which is what I love about you. But darling, despite your bleeding heart, we do have to be. Careful and just keep this between us. I mean, it means that we have to be very careful and not chat about this, you know, unless we know we’re all alone and no one else is around.

I mean, if someone overheard us talking about Nicole’s pregnancy, like EJ almost did Anna, what the hell?

Hey, I am so sorry about everything Leo just said. He’s just trying to stir up drama as usual, but you know, nothing’s changed. All right, snow and I are just friends, not Johnny. You don’t have to keep telling me. Okay. I totally believe you. Good. And I know Leo was wrong about the two of you, but. He wasn’t exactly wrong about me and Tripp.

I know that. And Johnny, if it’s ever too weird or uncomfortable, I’ll understand you. Kidding me. Afraid of a little competition. No,

I’m not giving up on you without a fight.

I was wondering when we were going to get to all the demerit trauma that I’ve so sorely missed. So tell me, Kristen, how did EJ stab you in the back? Can we not go to that please? He and I were once very, very close. For God’s sake, what’s the point? I helped save his life when he was shot, and I put mine on hold as I supervised his rehabilitation.

And then a few years later when I had legal trouble, he refused to represent me for good reason. Well, whatever the reason, it doesn’t sound very brotherly. As C E O I, regrettably had to distance myself from Kristen. It was what was best for business at the time. Sadly, he shunned me again, even more hurtful.

Hey, uh, He barred me from attending the funeral of my dear friend Susan, a dear friend who happened to be my mother, whom you tortured Musclely much like you’re torturing me now. You know, I must concur. EJ does have a knack for back stabbing, especially when it comes to his siblings. And I’m not just talking about Christian here.

I’m talking about me, Chad. Ah forbid he’s saying it. And how can you be sure he won’t do the same thing to you? Just saying, and I’m just saying the bottom line, E j’s loyalty to this family is pretty much non-existent. So he might wanna think twice about taking his so-called offer

and Nicole. I, I, I didn’t, I didn’t mean to tell Tony it, it was an accident, I swear. And EJ almost overheard. Was that an accident too? Yes. That EJ is still in the dark and Tony managed to cover, so we’re all good. You know, Nicole, I still don’t feel good about this. I think my brother has the right to know if you might be carrying his child.

Look, um, I’m doing a paternity test in a few days, and as soon as I find out who the father is, I will deliver the news. But until then, I, I need you to keep this under wraps. Can you do that, please? Of course, of course. I promise. We promise, right, Tony? Fine. Thank you. Well, while I have you here, maybe you could help me speed things up, gimme some advice.

Of course. So for the paternity test, I need to swab e j’s cheek without him knowing and, and it would be easiest if he was sleeping, but he is such a light sleeper. I, I don’t, oh. No worries. I have the perfect solution.

Give him one of these. What’s this? It is a sleeping pill. Whenever I have insomnia, I just popped one. It’ll knock EJ right out and he will sleep deeply for hours and hours. Believe me.

Hey there. Hey there to you. What are you doing? Well, I saw all these towels in the dryer, so I thought I’d fold them. Oh, how very domestic. Yeah. Well, I know you got a lot going on. Hmm. So I just wanted to see what I could do to help. Thanks. I appreciate that. By the way, what are you doing home? I thought you were gonna be with your brother for a while.

Oh yeah. Well, the hospital, they canceled the visiting hours until tomorrow because of the virus? Yeah, I guess they just wanted to be safe. Yeah. And um, Eric, thank you for being so understanding about all of this, especially considering you probably think my brother is a monster and I don’t blame you one bit, but I can’t turn my back on him.

I mean, he’s in some serious trouble and Well, I should probably let you know that, um, I agree to defend him in court. I know I overheard you telling him yesterday and you’re okay with it. Well, I’m appalled by what he did, but I know you are too. My sister Sammy, she’s done a lot of terrible things over the years and I too struggled to defend her, but I stood by her to the best that I could and I admire and wanting to do the same for him.

I mean so much. Hmm. With everything going on, I really, I couldn’t stand with Lucy. You won’t. I’m here. I’m here for you. I’m not going anywhere. You know that. Right.

You know, as much as I hate to admit it, Leo was right about one thing, one time. Well, when he called me an out of work diante, I wanted to kick him in the, you know what? But he did have a point. Ah, I need to hurry up and jumpstart my film career. Okay. Well, you sound like you have a lot of family drama to mind from.

Maybe you could do a documentary about them. Not a bad idea, although. It didn’t go very well the last time I tried to tell my family’s story, so maybe I could tell yours. Mine. Mm-hmm. Thought that would be very interesting. Kidding me. Let me tell you about Wendy Shin. Bright and ambitious. Her sexist family relegates her to the wilds of Alaska, sorely underestimating our Wiley heroin.

She comes to Salem guns blazing, demanding a seat at the table. She also finds herself investigating a plot involving a mad evil scientist risking her own life. To uncover the truth along the way. She falls in love with a dashing and super hot filmmaker. Oh, super hot. Well, that’s lady whistleblowers, or it’s not mine.

Hmm. Wendy briefly finds herself torn between two guys. Before realizing that there is only one man for her. Really? Mm-hmm. And which guy was that? Well, you have to buy a ticket to find out.

Megan, I assure you that I am offering you my room as a sincere gesture of goodwill and not asking for anything in. Accept to vote my shares in your favor. Well, in that regard, I’m no different to Stephan than am I. Well, in order to avoid choosing sides of this early juncture, I think I’ll choose a different bedroom.

I’m sure there are plenty to choose from in this house. Oh, definitely Megan. I would take a look at the east wing. The sunlight in the morning is breathtaking. You know what? Come on sis. We’re gonna take a look at all the wings and uh, we’ll find a place to crash. So this will gimme a chance to give you a tour of the family homestead.

Hello? Hello there, Nicole. Kristen, you’re out of prison again? Yes. My resourceful sister got me immunity sister. Mm-hmm. Oh, Megan, this is ejs on again, off again, girlfriend Nicole Walker. Pleasure to meet you. Oh, likewise. Well yeah, stay in chat. We need to find our. Bedrooms, or should I say suites? Oh my God.

You’re gonna be living here. Of course we’re damira is darling. Where else would we live? Well, I’ll be into, mm-hmm.

I am impressed with you Eric. Grading. Yeah, because I’m folding your towels. No, because you could have cut and run. A long time ago when the whole tile thought that I was a stalker. You stood by me. You defended me to, and Abe, your sister fell. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

You know what? Don’t gimme too much credit. I’ve had my own share of doubts as you know, but ultimately I got another person that you were, you are, and I know you aren’t capable of committing the crimes that your brother did. God, I still cannot believe he terrorized Paul and Chanel. Tried to kill them. I mean, I was angry too, but my God, I just wish I knew how broken he was, how troubled he was.

I mean, he was good at hiding things, obviously. No, still I should have been there for him, but instead I moved here to Salem to ex exact, my own revenge. Setting a bad example for him. I mean, even though I’m gonna fight like hell for him, the truth is that Colin’s probably going away to prison for a long, long time.

With both my parents gone.

You won’t be alone. Hey, you have me.

The funny thing is that for so long I was so scared of opening up my heart to anybody, letting anybody in. I’m so glad I.

I’m glad you did too.

Yeah. I love you. It’s out. Yeah. Don’t feel obligated to say it back. Don’t.

Truth is


Let me guess. This is about the Sanderson sisters. I just ran into them downstairs. The Sanderson sisters, the witches from Hocus Pocus. Oh, ugh. Why are you letting those two nightmares move in here? For the simple reason that Kristin is a shareholder and soon Megan will be too. I see. And you need their votes to maintain power.

Right. And so far I am doing a miserable job getting them on my side. Dammit. I feel like my head is about to explode. I can imagine.

Oh, so do you think you’ll be able to sleep? Oh, I don’t think so. I’m too wound up. Well, in that case, um, Maybe Ha, you could, you could try one of these. What’s that? It, it’s just a sleeping pill. I don’t normally take them, just, you know, when I’m feeling anxiety or when my head is gonna explode and it’s not addictive.

It’s a mild. Instead it did to just help you sleep well through the night, and then you can wake up and you can form a plan of attack with a clear head,

fine. Sure. Sounds like a plan.

In spite of that jerk Leo turning up. I have a really nice time tonight. No, just doesn mean I’m winning. Okay. I wish you wouldn’t put it like that. I mean, it’s not a contest, it’s just me being conflicted. Then indecisive, which I do tend to be by nature or wish I weren’t, but hey, it’s okay. However indecisive you might be.

I think you’re great. And though we are not calling it a contest, Since it’s a choice that you have to make, hopefully this will, I dunno. Hope you decide.

That’ll definitely go in your column. That’s what I was hoping.

Good night.

You think we should go back downstairs? Keep working. Your sisters. Ah. Now let’s quit while we’re ahead. Best not to overplay our hand. You’re right. I mean, good thing we’ve stopped EJ from, uh, making any inroads, Megan. Hmm. And for now, Christian seems to be on our side. Yeah. Well if we keep that up, then we’ll have enough folks to ask your brother, and then we’re gonna be in control, baby.

Mm-hmm. You know, I never would’ve guessed my sister’s getting out of prison would’ve been such a major win for us. An answer to our prayers.

It’s very satisfying that our brothers are working overtime to win our allegiance A bit demeaning. If one had thin skin, how do you mean? Well, it is obviously chauvinistic of them to assume that our only option. Is for one of them to run the company. Hmm. You’re right. Huh? How the boys had their turn at the top.

Perhaps it’s time for the girls to take charge. You catch on fast? Yes. Let’s hear it for the girls.

I’m not one to take sleeping pills, but as I said, I’m so worked up right now. But you need to sleep, AJ, and honestly, it’s just one pill. It’s not gonna hurt you. Right. One second. Ah, damn. It’s where Shin at this hour. Hello, Mr. Shim. What I thought you said it was a done deal.

Of course. No, no. I, I understand. I’ll take care of it.

A potential investor is getting cold feet and need to take the jet to Chicago, talk ’em off the ledge. What you don’t mean tonight, I do. It’s too important to let it wait, especially with Steph and nipping on my heels. Look at every and any opportunity to gain the upper hand. So unfortunately, I need to depart.

I’ll see you tomorrow. Okay. Well, good luck.

Hello, it’s me. How are things going with ej? Total Bus. He just left for an urgent business trip, so obviously I won’t be able to get a sample from him. It’s all up to you now. Well, actually that’s why I’m calling Mission accomplished. I’ve got Eric’s sample in my hot little hands. Oh, thank God.

I’ll be in touch. Okay,

well, it won’t be long now. Now, soon we’ll know whether your daddy is ej. Oh, Eric.

Hope: Hey, you’re still home.

Liam: Yeah, I’m, um, just answering a few emails before I head in. How was drop off?

Hope: Well, uh, first in line three days in a row.

Liam: That’s a new record. Good.

Hope: Are we… good? Liam, you know I love you more than anything else.

Hope: Okay, I just, um… I want to be sure that we’re on the same page before we go to work.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: Thomas and I, we strictly have a professional relationship and I understand that we’ve been working a lot of long hours, but–

Liam: Hope, I know.

Hope: Our focus is on saving the line. Liam… our life, our marriage, our family, it means everything to me and I– I would never want to risk that. So, steffy can say what she wants to say and she saw what she saw, but she’s wrong.

Ridge: That’s a valid point, son, but I do feel that everything is going to be worked out between thomas and hope before we leave for italy.

Rj: You really think that liam’s just gonna be chill with it by then?

Eric: He’s always been supportive of hope before. I don’t see why this would be any different.

Rj: Come on, steffy. You agree with this?

Steffy: Yeah, I do agree. I think it’s an amazing opportunity. Hope for the future was on its way out and then thomas came in and started–

Rj: Yeah, I know, thomas. Thomas to the rescue.

Ridge: Hey, don’t do that. He did come to the rescue. He turned this thing around. He’s talented, just like you, just like you, and I’m glad you’re here. We’re all together again. And I know I said there wasn’t gonna be any family drama, and I– I do think that. I think we’re at the end of it.

Rj: That go for you, too? How’s the whole situation with, you know, you and mom and taylor going?

Deacon: So, that’s how I see initially scaling it. I mean, what do you– what do you guys think? Is it too ambitious?

Brooke: No! No, that’s exciting!

Taylor: Yeah, it really is. It is. It– it’s, um, it’s a roadmap to the future, a very successful future. One that you and– and everyone you know can be proud of.

Deacon: I mean, you know, as a businessman, you have to have goals, right? I don’t wanna get ahead of myself, but I wanna, you know, increase the visibility of the brand and maybe, I don’t know, strategically open up a couple of new restaurants. And I’m going full in on the frozen pizza.

Brooke: Oh.

Deacon: It’s very exciting.

Brooke: That is, that’s very impressive.

Taylor: Yeah, it really is. Especially when you think about how– how you got here. You know, you– you saw something you wanted and you put your heart into it, and then look at this place! It’s a huge success. You’ve really come a long way, deacon, don’t you think, brooke?

Brooke: Yes, of course. Absolutely. And now please welcome ana montoya.

Hope: Steffy misinterpreted what she saw and as your wife, I would hope that you would listen to me and take my word for it instead of your ex-wife’S.

Liam: The last thing I want to believe is that you have feelings for thomas.

Hope: Well, then don’t believe it. Don’t, liam, because it’s not… it’s not true. I swear.

Liam: Yeah. Um, all right. I’m, uh, I’m gonna head to the office because I’m kind of late as it is.

Hope: Um, yeah. I mean, I– I need to get going to forrester as well, so.

Liam: Okay. All right.

Hope: I love you.

Liam: Yeah, me too.

Ridge: Why does it feel like I’m on the hot seat once again?

Rj: Oh, we’re sorry. You know, we really don’t mean to make you feel that way.

Steffy: No, not at all. We just want to know what your intentions are where our mothers are concerned.

Ridge: What my– what my intentions are?

Rj: Yeah. I just wanna know where, you know, things stand between you and my mom.

Steffy: And mine.

Eric: Well, I think the two of them have made their intentions very, very clear.

Ridge: Yes, they have.

Eric: Yes, they have, but it’s also very clear to me that those two are the loves of your life. You share children and grandchildren with them.

Ridge: I know that. I know that, but part of history is the choice that they made. They put their friendship first.

Rj: Their friendship, but that doesn’t mean that mom doesn’t still love you.

Ridge: And that’s nice and I realize that.

Steffy: Well, that must mean you also realize that mom still loves you, too.

Ridge: I am aware of that also. Yes.

Eric: Look, we all admire and respect what the two of them are doing, but I have to say–

Rj: But how much longer before one of them is sharing their life with you?

Taylor: You know what’s really, really cool about this whole thing is that you have become one of L.A.’S most eligible bachelors.

Brooke: Ooh.

Taylor: Yes!

Deacon: Uh, according to who?

Taylor: According to everyone.

Deacon: Ah.

Taylor: Yeah. Just don’t be modest.

Deacon: Deacon sharpe, modest? That’d be a first.

Taylor: You know what I mean.

Deacon: Oh, I do.

Taylor: Glad you do. I’m– I’m sure brooke would agree.

Brooke: Hm? Oh, yes, of course. I mean, deacon knows that I want nothing but the best for him. I gotta go back to work. Sorry, but this was wonderful. Thank you for suggesting it and we’re gonna do it again soon, right? Oh, here, let me give you some–

Taylor: Stop. I got it.

Brooke: Okay. Thanks. Bye.

Taylor: We’ll talk later.

Brooke: Bye.

Deacon: Uh, laying it on kind of thick there, weren’t you?

Taylor: Was I?

Deacon: L.A.’S most eligible bachelor?

Taylor: Well, you are. You really are and it doesn’t hurt to remind brooke.

Steffy: We’re excited too. Rome’s the perfect location for what we have in mind. All right, I’ll keep you posted. Ciao.

[ Door slamming ]

Hope: You just had to do it, didn’t you? You just had to interfere in my marriage. Scout is protected by simparica trio,

Rj: Hey, dad, look at this. Check it out.

Ridge: What am I looking at?

Rj: It’s– it’s a video I posted yesterday and it blew up overnight.

Ridge: It blew up and that’s a good thing?

Rj: Well, yeah! I mean, I– I got a ton of followers from it. Come on, it’s pretty awesome, right?

Ridge: I’m sure it’s awesome.

Rj: Yeah, it’s not as awesome as if I were designing here at forrester, right?

Ridge: Hey, don’t do that. I told you I’d love for you to work here with me. I think it’d be great, but the most important thing is for you to be happy, and if that means blowing things up on the world wide web, then do that. Come here.

Rj: Thanks.

Brooke: Aw. I love walking in and seeing two of my most favorite men in the world.

Ridge: I thought you were gonna be here earlier.

Brooke: Yeah, I, uh, lost track of time. I was catching up with taylor.

Deacon: Laying it on a little thick there, weren’t you?

Taylor: Hm? What do you mean?

Deacon: What do you mean, what do I mean? Come on. It wasn’t that long ago that you were urging me to take a shot with brooke and obviously, you haven’t gotten over that idea.

Taylor: Right. Right. I just– I just happened to think that it was a good opportunity. You know, now that brooke’s sworn off ridge, right? This could be your opportunity, deacon.

Deacon: What if I told you that I didn’t want another chance with brooke?

Taylor: Oh, well, I would say you are a big fat liar ’cause brooke has always been the one for you.

Deacon: Just like ridge has always been the one for you. What– what’s going on with you?

Taylor: No, no, no, no, no, no, we are not– we are not talking about ridge and me. We’re talking about you and brooke.

Deacon: Which has me wondering.

Taylor: What does it have you wondering?

Deacon: It has me wondering if you’re using me so that you can reunite with forrester.

Steffy: So, if you have

any concerns about hope

and thomas, if you have

any suspicions, it’s not

because of thomas.

I think it’s hope.

Steffy: Obviously, liam spoke to you about what I said.

Hope: About your ridiculous suspicions. Yes, he did. I mean, how dare you, steffy? How dare you go out of your way to tell my husband that I have feelings for thomas. I mean, it’s pathetic.

Steffy: Is it, though?

Hope: Yes. What you thought you saw in this office couldn’t have been further from the truth. I wasn’t coming on to thomas. I told you we got caught up in that moment and– and yet, you insist on believing otherwise. It’s almost like you’re trying to undermine my marriage.

Steffy: Of course not. Though I have to wonder… are you?

Hope: How could you even ask me that? You of all people should know how much liam means to me.

Steffy: And you should know how much thomas means to me. So, are you lying? Are you attracted to thomas? If you think you, a child in your care,

Brooke: Oh, I– I realize I keep saying this, but I am so excited to have our wonderful talented son back here in los angeles.

Rj: Oh, mom.

Brooke: Well, it’s true. And when did you grow up and become an adult and carve this amazing career out for yourself? Oh, I love you so much.

Rj: I love you too, mom.

Ridge: See, that’s what it’s all about, right? Us being back together. Everything’s fine now that you’re home. Come here.

Brooke: It’s true.

Taylor: Do I want ridge back?

Deacon: That’s the question.

Taylor: I mean, I will always love ridge. You know, our love story was hijacked all those years ago and I–

Deacon: And that’s something that you still blame brooke for. Look, I get it. You guys have your little gal pal pact and everything’s supposed to be forgotten from the past, but my question to you, taylor, is, can it be? Really? I mean, if ridge is still in both your lives?

Taylor: Look, ridge is always gonna be in both our lives. We– we both have families with him and you are right, ridge has been in brooke’s orbit longer than mine.

Deacon: And now with rj back, I mean, that just reaffirms that brooke and ridge, they’re family.

[ Phone ringing ] Sorry. [Indistinct] Hello.

Guard: Deacon sharpe, please

Deacon: Yeah, you got him. Who’s this?

Guard: I’m with the lundberg

correctional facility.

We have a collect call

for you from inmate

sheila carter. Will you

accept the charges?

Deacon: Yeah, I’m sorry, I’m not going to be able to talk right now. What?

Taylor: I don’t know, that call.

Deacon: What about it?

Taylor: I don’t know. You seem a little flustered. It sounded mysterious.

Deacon: You know–

Taylor: Is that someone that you’re dating?

Deacon: You–

Taylor: Is that someone that you’re dating? Is that–

Deacon: You need to stop and be careful because your– your matchmaking is becoming very obvious. Let’s get back to you now. So, um, what happened to this, this gal pal pact the two of you had? Oh, no, there’s trouble in paradise, isn’t there?

Taylor: You’ve kept how

you feel about thomas from me

because, brooke, I–

I thought that we had a–

a– a real friendship.

Brooke: We do.

Taylor: Is there anything

else I deserve to know?

Anything happen with ridge? I am– I am– I’m not trusting our pact so much right now. Um, long story short, um, she doesn’t– she doesn’t trust thomas. She’s not being honest. So, our pact was about honesty and transparency across the board, especially when it comes to ridge and I… I think I’m just, I’m– I’m trying to do what’s right for everyone. Especially you, deacon.

Deacon: And yourself.

Hope: The answer is no,

liam. I love you.

My commitment is to you.

Our relationship is nothing

but professional.

My heart

is here with you, always.

Hope: This is my life you’re messing with. My marriage, my family. Yes, I care about your brother. I care about thomas. I am so grateful that he’s become a good father to douglas. I am grateful that he’s working on the line, but there is nothing more than that.

Steffy: But if you’re totally honest with yourself–

Hope: Can you just stop for a second, please, and listen to me? Liam knows how much I love him. I told him that he is the only man for me. He’s the only man that I want to spend the rest of my life with. And thomas? I’m not interested in him. I never have been interested in him. I never will be interested in him. Liam and I have been through too much. We have faced our fair share of challenges, and some of those were because of you, by the way.

[ Steffy scoffing ] So, we deserve to be happy. So, could you maybe try to not ruin that for once? Keep your comments to yourself. Stay out of my marriage.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Johnny is sitting at a table at the bar when Leo walks in and asks if the seat is taken. Johnny informs him that he is waiting for his date. Leo decides to sit down since his date isn’t there yet and asks if Johnny wants to fill him in on his latest family drama. Johnny questions what he’s talking about. Leo informs Johnny that his aunt Kristen was released from prison which shocks Johnny, who asks if she got another pardon. Leo reveals that she got immunity and now he is way more interested in his other aunt, Megan Hathaway.

Megan steps forward and announces she thinks it’s time that she take the family name as she is now claiming to be a DiMera completely and entirely. EJ then toasts to Megan DiMera. Tony thanks them for their kind words on behalf of the family, but now there is something he’d like to say to EJ, causing Anna to worry as she thinks back to asking Tony not to tell a soul about Nicole’s secret. Anna then speaks up and tells Tony that she can’t let him do this.

At the hospital, Nicole then opens the swab kit, but Eric arrives and questions what is going on here. Sloan greets Eric, who says he knew she’d be at the hospital all day with Colin so he decided to come see if she needed anything. Sloan thanks him but says they are fine. Eric says that’s good and then questions what Sloan and Nicole are up to. Nicole asks what he means. Eric points out that he saw them with their heads together and seemed really interested in that box, so he asks what’s in it. Sloan admits it’s a medical test kit, so Eric questions what the test is for. Nicole claims it’s for a virus because there was an outbreak on the 10th floor and to protect all patients, all visitors have to test before being let in. Nicole says she was going to share a test with Sloan since the hospital is low on supplies so that Sloan would be able to see her brother. Sloan says that as generous as Nicole’s offer is, she really thinks Eric should have the test. Eric questions why. Sloan points out that Abe is a family friend, so she’s sure he would like to visit him. Nicole agrees that it makes sense and suggests Eric take the test right now, so she can take it straight to the lab.

EJ questions what is wrong with Anna. Gabi remarks that Anna must have had too much wine but Anna assures that she is sober. Anna argues that Tony must have had one too many at the Bistro. Kristen points out that Tony seems sober to her. Tony says that he is but Anna disagrees. Anna remarks that when Tony gets like this, he makes unwise decisions, so she wouldn’t want him to say anything that he will regret later. Megan says they are all family here, so they should feel free to say whatever they want to each other and tells Tony that he has the floor.

Leo asks Johnny about Megan as he heard everyone thought she died in a hot tub incident back in the 80s. Johnny responds that he’s asking the wrong guy because he’s never even met Megan. Wendy then arrives and apologizes for being late as she joins Johnny. Leo is surprised to learn that Wendy is Johnny’s date because he assumed it was going to be Chanel. Johnny tells Leo there is nothing going on between he and Chanel and that’s history. Leo remarks that history has a way of repeating itself and asks if the engagement is off. Johnny insists it was never on and he’s dating Wendy. Leo apologizes and says it’s hard to keep track of things around here, commenting that people change partners like they change underwear. Leo then asks Wendy if she really believed Johnny’s high on biscuits story. Wendy assures that she did because Johnny wouldn’t lie to her. Leo asks if she believes that he only has eyes for her then. Johnny assures that is true. Leo remarks that it’s too bad Wendy doesn’t feel the same way since his sources tell him that Wendy ran off to Seattle to be with Tripp. Leo then asks that since Wendy is back here with Johnny, if that means she dumped Tripp. Wendy says no, so Leo comments that it’s double her pleasure, double her fun.

EJ asks what Tony wanted to tell him. Tony claims that he thought EJ deserves a toast in his honor too. Gabi mocks that and suggests a roast instead. Tony talks about EJ doing a tremendous job as CEO over the last several months. Stefan points out that’s co-CEO. Tony says he’s talking about before Stefan’s promotion, as EJ was doing very nicely on his own and under his leadership, DiMera Enterprises has attained tremendous heights. Gabi then agrees with Anna that Tony is completely wasted. Tony acknowledges Megan not being around over the years but assures her that EJ is best for the job, so it would be wise of her to support him and tells Kristen the same. Megan and Kristen call it quite an endorsement. Kristen suggests skipping the toast since Tony made his point. Anna asks for a word with Tony in private and takes him out of the living room. Megan remarks that she sees Anna is still quite the drama queen.

Outside the room, Anna questions what Tony was thinking since she asked him not to tell EJ about Nicole’s secret, but he was about to blab the news to everyone. Tony argues that he wasn’t going to. Anna says she’s glad that she got him to back down and he came up with a cover story. Tony insists that he said what he intended to in the first place because he just wanted to make it clear that he supports EJ. Anna questions Tony not planning to expose Nicole’s secret. Tony assures that he wasn’t, but Anna almost did on her own.

Eric tells Nicole that it wouldn’t be right, so he’d rather Sloan have the test. Sloan insists and says she was with her brother earlier, so she can wait to see him. Eric feels that she shouldn’t have to and says as much as he’d like to see Abe, it’s more important for Sloan to be with her family. Sloan agrees if he insists. Eric tells her that he will just meet her back at her place. Eric says he’ll see them later and exits the hospital. Nicole tells Sloan that it was a good idea even though it failed miserably and now they are back to the same problem. Sloan argues that it’s not a problem, but an impossibility to get a cheek swab from someone without explaining why. Nicole tells Sloan that she doesn’t have to help her and can still back out. Sloan argues that she has a vested interest in this too since her boyfriend could be her baby daddy, but she prays that he’s not.

Anna apologizes for doubting Tony which he calls nothing new. Anna argues that at the Bistro, he seemed on the fence about it and she promised Nicole that she wouldn’t tell a soul. Tony still doesn’t feel right about it and admits he is still on the fence because EJ has a right to know. EJ then comes out from the living room and asks what he has a right to know.

Johnny tells Leo that he’s making Wendy very uncomfortable. Leo argues that he’s just having fun with her while Wendy feels that he’s making fun of her. Leo encourages that everybody loves a good love triangle. Wendy asks Johnny to make Leo go away. Wendy threatens to hack in to all of Leo’s accounts and make his life Hell if he prints anything about her in his column. Leo tells her that there’s no need to get testy as he is on her side. Wendy questions how the hell he is on her side. Leo says he sympathizes with her conundrum as he understands why she’s torn between Johnny and Tripp. Leo remarks that Tripp has the advantage of being a doctor while Johnny has the DiMera money but is out of work. Johnny then has enough and forces Leo out. As Johnny is escorting Leo out, Leo calls out to Wendy that he heard about Gabi and Li’s divorce, telling her to give Li his number, and asking if it’s true that Gabi and Stefan are already engaged.

Gabi says she wouldn’t trust a word Tony said as he’s completely biased towards EJ. Megan points out that they are brothers while Stefan argues that they aren’t blood. Gabi brings up that Tony was once married to Kristen which Megan questions. Kristen explains that it was more of an arranged marriage set up by Stefano and the man she married turned out to be Andre. Gabi points out that she eventually did marry Tony while pretending to be Nicole and used that to seize control of DiMera. Gabi decides that’s all in the past and talks about how they would love to work with Kristen and Megan to ensure the family and company’s very bright future, but they need to have Stefan solely in charge to do that because he’s more in tune with today’s modern world than his brothers. Gabi declares that if they want DiMera to thrive for decades to come, they need to back Stefan.

EJ questions Anna and Tony about what he has a right to know. Tony claims that Anna thought his speech was somewhat impotent and stirring the flames of his rivalry with Stefan. EJ says that ship has sailed as Stefan has had his sights set on ousting him since the moment he came back to life. Tony assures EJ that he is firmly in his corner which EJ says he sincerely appreciates. EJ comments that in a family full of liars and vultures, it’s good to know that Tony has always had his back as he hugs him.

Megan states that she is all for what is best for the company, but she does have to ask what Gabi and Stefan can do for her. Stefan says they will welcome her back in to the family where she belongs with open arms and make her feel at home. Gabi argues that she won’t get that from EJ as he only cares about himself and won’t make any sacrifices for her like they will. EJ walks back in and says that is simply not true. EJ is sure Megan sees through Gabi’s vicious spin on his relationship with his family and the company. EJ adds that he will do whatever it takes to make Megan feel valued. EJ declares that he’s willing to turn over his master suite to Megan, feeling that after being in prison, she deserves the biggest room in the house. Kristen argues that she was locked up in prison too. EJ points out that Megan has seniority, otherwise he would have offered Kristen the room. Kristen tells EJ that she wouldn’t accept it anyway after he stabbed her in the back.

Tony tells Anna that he hated lying to EJ just now. Anna says that’s because he’s a kind and decent man which is what she loves about him. Anna says despite that, they have to be careful and just keep this between them which means they can’t chat about this unless they know they are alone with no one around. Anna comments on if someone heard them talking about Nicole’s pregnancy like EJ almost did, right as Nicole comes home and asks Anna what the hell.

Johnny returns to Wendy after getting rid of Leo and apologizes about everything Leo said as he was just trying to stir up drama as usual. Johnny assures that nothing has changed and he is just friends with Chanel. Wendy insists that she totally believes him. Wendy adds that she knows Leo was wrong about them, but not exactly wrong about her and Tripp which Johnny says he knows. Wendy says she will understand if it’s ever too weird or uncomfortable. Johnny responds that he’s not afraid of a little competition. Johnny holds her hand and declares that he’s not giving up on her without a fight.

Megan wondered when they would get to all the DiMera drama that she sorely missed. Megan then asks Kristen how EJ stabbed her in the back. EJ doesn’t want to go there. Kristen talks about how they were once very close and she saved his life after he was shot. Kristen says she put her life on hold to help with his rehabilitation, then a few years later when she had legal trouble, he refused to represent her. EJ argues that was for good reason. Megan remarks that it doesn’t sound very brotherly. EJ explains that as CEO, he regrettably had to distance himself from Kristen because it was what was best for business at the time. Kristen adds that EJ shunned her again and it was even more hurtful when he barred her from attending the funeral of her dear friend Susan. EJ argues that Kristen tortured Susan mercilessly. Stefan intervenes to state that EJ does have a knack for backstabbing, especially when it comes to his siblings including himself and Chad. Gabi asks how they can be sure EJ won’t do the same to them. Kristen declares that EJ is not loyal to the family, so Megan might want to think twice about taking his so called offer.

Anna explains to Nicole that she didn’t mean to tell Tony and swears it was an accident. Nicole questions if it was an accident that EJ almost overheard. Anna assures that EJ is still in the dark and Tony managed to cover, so they are all good. Tony repeats that he still doesn’t feel good about this as he thinks EJ has a right to know if she might be carrying his child. Nicole tells them that she is having a paternity test and when she finds out, she will share the news, but until then, she needs them to keep this under wraps. Anna and Tony promise to do that so Nicole thanks them. Nicole then asks if they can help her speed things up and give her advice. Nicole explains that in order to do the paternity test, she needs a cheek swab from EJ. Anna declares that she has the perfect solution and presents Nicole with a bottle of sleeping pills, assuring that it will knock EJ out and he will sleep deeply for hours.

Sloan comes home where Eric is folding towels from the dryer, saying he knows she has a lot going on so he wanted to do whatever he could to help. Eric asks what she’s doing home as he thought she was going to be with her brother. Sloan claims the hospital cancelled visiting hours because of the virus to be safe. Sloan thanks Eric for being so understanding about all of it, especially considering that he probably thinks her brother is a monster and she doesn’t blame him one bit, but she can’t turn her back on him as he’s in serious trouble. Sloan adds that she should probably let him know that she agreed to defend Colin in court. Eric admits that he overheard her telling him yesterday. Sloan asks if he’s okay with it. Eric says he’s appalled by what Colin did and he knows Sloan is too. Eric relates to his sister Sami doing a lot of terrible things over the years but standing by her as much as he could. Sloan tells Eric that it means so much to her because with everything going on, she couldn’t stand to lose him. Eric assures that he’s here for her and not going anywhere.

Johnny tells Wendy that he hates to admit it, but Leo was right about one thing when he pointed out that he is out of work. Johnny states that he needs to hurry up and jumpstart his film career. Wendy notes that he sounds like he has a lot of family drama to take from, so maybe he could do a documentary on them. Johnny calls that not a bad idea but points out that it didn’t go so well the last time he tried to tell his family story. Johnny suggests maybe he could tell Wendy’s instead. Wendy doubts that would be very interesting. Johnny talks about her life as a movie and everything she’s been through since coming to Salem. Johnny says in the movie, Wendy finds herself briefly torn between two guys but in the end, there’s only one guy for her. Wendy asks which guy that is, but Johnny says she’d have to buy a ticket to find out.

EJ assures Megan that he is offering her his room as a sincere gesture of good will and not looking for anything in return. Megan says except for her to vote her shares in his favor. EJ says in that regard, he’s no different than Stefan. Megan decides that she wants to avoid choosing sides this early, so she will pick a different bedroom as she’s sure there are plenty to choose from. Gabi encourages her to check the East wing. Kristen decides they will take a look at all the wings and find a place to crash. Kristen adds that it will give her a chance to give Megan a tour of the family home. Kristen and Megan exit the room to see Nicole with Anna and Tony. Nicole is shocked that Kristen is out of prison again. Kristen informs her that Megan got her immunity. Kristen then introduces Megan to Nicole. Kristen says they need to find their bedrooms. Nicole is shocked to learn they will be living there. Megan responds that they are DiMeras, so where else would they live. Kristen and Megan then head upstairs.

Sloan tells Eric that she is impressed with him because he could have cut and run a long time ago but he stood by her and defended her when the whole town thought she was a stalker. Sloan tells Eric how much that means to her. Eric says not to give him too much credit since he did have his share of doubts, but ultimately he got to know the person she is and he knows she’s not capable of the crimes that her brother was. Sloan still can’t believe Colin terrorized Paulina and Chanel and tried to kill them. Sloan says she was angry too but wishes she knew. Eric says Colin was obviously good at hiding things. Sloan feels she should’ve been there for him, but instead she moved to Salem for her own revenge and set a bad example for him. Sloan declares that she will fight like hell for Colin, but the truth is that he’s probably going to prison for a very long time. Sloan starts to cry about both her parents being gone. Eric encourages that she won’t be alone as she has him. Sloan responds that for so long, she was scared of opening her heart to anybody and letting them in, but she’s so glad she did with him. Sloan then tells Eric that she loves him and says he doesn’t have to feel obligated to say it back. Eric responds that the truth is, he loves her too as they kiss. Eric then picks her up and carries her to bed.

EJ has a drink in his room. Nicole walks in and guesses this is about his sisters. Nicole questions why he’s letting them move in. EJ points out that Kristen is a shareholder and Megan will soon be too. Nicole realizes that he will need them on his side. EJ complains that so far, he’s doing a miserable job and feels like his head is about to explode. Nicole then asks if EJ thinks he’ll be able to sleep. EJ doesn’t think so and says he’s too wound up. Nicole takes the opportunity to suggest he try a sleeping pill, claiming that she takes them when she feels like he does and says it will help him sleep through the night. Nicole says then when he wakes up, he can form a plan of attack with a clear head. EJ agrees that it sounds like a plan.

Johnny brings Wendy home. Wendy says in spite of Leo, she had a really nice time tonight. Johnny asks if that means he’s winning. Wendy doesn’t want to put it like that because it’s not a contest, just her being conflicted and indecisive. Johnny tells her it’s okay and says he thinks she’s great. Johnny agrees that it’s not a contest but a choice that she has to make. Johnny hopes to help her decide as he kisses her. Wendy jokes that will definitely go in his plus column as they say goodnight and she heads inside.

Gabi asks Stefan if they should go back to keep working on Megan and Kristen but Stefan says it’s best not to overplay their hand. Gabi says it’s good that they stopped EJ from making any in roads with Megan. Stefan adds that Kristen seems to be on their side. Gabi declares that if they keep it up, they will be in control in no time. Stefan says he never would’ve guessed that his sisters getting out of prison would be such a major win for them. Gabi calls it an answer to their prayers.

Kristen and Megan sit together in the living room, talking about their brothers trying to win them over. Megan comments on them thinking the only option is for one of them to run the company. Kristen remarks that the boys had their turn on top, so perhaps it’s time for the girls to take charge. Megan says she catches on fast as Kristen toasts to the girls.

EJ tells Nicole that he’s not one to take sleeping pills but he is so wound up. Nicole encourages that he needs to sleep and one pill won’t hurt him. EJ then gets a call from Wei Shin and answers. EJ thought he said it was a done deal, then says he will take care of it. EJ tells Nicole that a potential investor is getting cold feet, so he needs to take the jet to Chicago to talk him off the ledge and it’s too important to let wait, especially with Stefan looking for the upper hand. EJ declares that he unfortunately needs to depart and he will see her tomorrow. EJ kisses Nicole and she wishes him luck as he exits, thwarting Nicole’s plan.

Sloan sits in bed next to Eric as he sleeps. Sloan then sneaks out of bed to retrieve the cheek swab from her purse and goes to use it on Eric. Sloan then calls Nicole and asks how things are going with EJ. Nicole says it’s a total bust as he just left for a business trip, so it’s all up to her now. Sloan reveals that’s why she called because she accomplished the mission and has Eric’s sample in hand which relieves Nicole. Sloan says she’ll be in touch as they hang up.

Nicole declares that it won’t be long now and they will soon know if her baby’s daddy is EJ or Eric.
