Sloan comes home and announces to Eric that her new client is very impressed with her which means a lot of money. Eric remains distracted on the computer and asks if she knows how much money that will be. Sloan questions him still worrying about their finances. Eric asks how he can not when they are having serious problems.

John is on the phone at the Brady Pub. John says he wants public records scanned on Konstantin to find anything that could lead them to his ex-wife. John hangs up and wonders where she is and what she may know.

Konstantin sits in his room at the Kiriakis Mansion with a photo of his daughter Catharina. Konstantin promises to find a way to stay and finish what he started. Konstantin thinks back to using his card to control John as The Pawn in the park. Konstantin then pulls his book from the drawer and goes to retrieve the card but finds it is gone. Konstantin gets upset and questions where the hell it is.

Marlena goes to visit Paulina at the hospital but finds Paulina is gone from her room.

Julie tells Johnny that help is on the way and the first responders will be there as soon as they can get through. Johnny questions where Chanel could be. Julie suggests she could’ve slipped on the ice or got turned around in all the snow. Johnny admits the visibility is pretty bad so she could’ve just lost the trail. Johnny decides he has to get back out there and find his wife and he’s not coming back until he does. Julie warns him to be careful out there as he exits the cabin.

Marlena calls John and says she needs his help as Paulina is gone when she was supposed to be isolated in her hospital room. John asks if she went for more tests but Marlena says she checked and that she was supposed to stay in her room, but there is no sign of her. Marlena worries that Paulina could be exposing people to harmful levels of radiation.

Julie thinks back to being on the phone with Paulina and telling her about Chanel missing. Julie pulls out her phone and calls Maggie. Maggie tells her that Doug filled her in on everything and asks if Chanel is safe. Julie says not yet but Johnny just went to look for her again. Maggie asks about the first responders. Julie explains that they can’t get through since the roads are blocked. Julie then hangs up as he thinks the first responders are there but she is shocked by Paulina arriving instead. Paulina warns Julie to stand back. Julie questions her not being in isolation. Paulina complains that she couldn’t sit in the room while her baby girl is missing. Julie argues that Johnny just went to find her. Paulina asks why they are standing here and suggests that Julie go one way and she’ll go the other.

Sloan asks Eric if he’s considered the expenses of a newborn baby. Eric assures that he’s been extremely careful in trying to figure out how they are in the red. Sloan offers to take a look and tells Eric that some of the entries are fixed and some are variable, so it’s all just a matter of navigating the tabs on the screen. Eric questions why people use accountants if it’s that simple. Sloan says it’s not fun so most people don’t like doing it. Sloan tells Eric to let his brain relax and promises to work it out. Sloan asks about Jude. Eric tells her that he’s in the crib. Sloan decides that she will go get him because they could all use a little Jude time.

Maggie has papers delivered to her at the Kiriakis Mansion by the maid.

Marlena meets John at the Brady Pub and asks if he got anything. John informs her that he just learned that Chanel is missing in the snowstorm as she and Johnny went out to the Horton Cabin. John explains that Johnny called 911 but first responders can’t get over the bridge so Johnny’s out looking for Chanel, but not by himself as he just learned from public works that Paulina commandeered a snow plow and is out there looking for Chanel on her own. Marlena realizes that’s why Paulina left isolation and says they have to notify the first responders because they can’t go anywhere near her since she’s radioactive.

Sloan brings Jude to Eric and says he’s the most precious creature she’s ever seen. Eric comments on how settled down Jude has been since the Christening. Sloan says that God works in mysterious ways. Eric suggests he should be more specific in his prayers for new clients in his business. Sloan asks if he’s still stressed about that and promises that things are going to look up with her payments from Stefan DiMera. Eric doesn’t want her to have to carry the whole load. Sloan says she doesn’t mind. Eric says he does and he’s been thinking about putting more focus in to editorial photography. Sloan calls that a great idea and suggests he could work for the Spectator. Sloan suggests he go see if he can persuade someone there to hire him on. Eric agrees to do that. Sloan wishes him luck as he exits. Sloan tells Jude how Eric is such a good man but if he knew that he and Nicole were Jude’s real parents, Eric would never trust her again and would never want anything to do with her. Sloan declares that they can’t have that so that’s why it’s their little secret, so she can be Jude’s mom forever.

Konstantin storms into the living room and confronts the maid over cleaning his room. Konstantin complains that a very important red and black card is missing from his room and questions if the maid has seen it, threw it out, or stole it. Maggie asks how dare he talk to her like that. Konstantin apologizes for his outburst and says it was completely unfair of him to make that accusation. Maggie argues that Ellie has been a model employee for several years. Konstantin explains that the card has sentimental value to him as a memento from his time with his daughter but apologizes again. Ellie the maid agrees to check with the staff if they have seen it and exits. Maggie notes that she’s never seen Konstantin like this. Konstantin says she knows how he is when it comes to his daughter. Konstantin claims the card is something Catharina carried with her. Maggie says if the card is in the house somewhere, they will find it. Konstantin thanks her for reassuring him and apologizes for how he acted. Maggie tells him that it’s alright and she forgives him. Konstantin says she always has a way of calming him down. Maggie doesn’t know how calm he’ll be when she tells him what she just learned. Maggie reveals that it’s unsettling news.

John tells Marlena that the first responders have been notified of the radiation threat and he offered to go up there himself but they said they will handle it. Marlena questions what Paulina was thinking. John says she obviously wasn’t thinking. Marlena worries about Paulina exposing everyone she comes in to contact with to radiation. John says she only cared about saving her daughter and argues that if anyone can relate to that, they can since they’ve been there with almost losing Sami and Belle. Marlena remembers those difficult times and they got through them because John was strong, amazing, and kept her from falling apart. John remembers Marlena being the strong one keeping him together through the whole thing. Marlena thanks him for the credit but says she wasn’t strong. John calls her his person and says he loves her with all his heart. John considers himself the luckiest man on Earth to be able to share his life with her. Marlena feels the same way and calls him so amazing. Marlena calls him her hero as they kiss.

Paulina successfully finds Chanel and brings her back in to the cabin. Chanel can’t believe she came looking for her. Paulina is just relieved that she found her. Paulina sits her on the couch with a blanket. Chanel thought she was hearing the angels when she heard her voice. Chanel calls Paulina her angel on Earth. Paulina talks about finding her. Chanel guesses she slipped in the snow and got caught between the rocks. Paulina tells her it’s okay now. Chanel stops and questions Paulina not being in the hospital. Paulina guesses she shouldn’t have left but she heard Chanel was missing and it was like the world turned dark, so she couldn’t sit there and do nothing as she had to find her.

Sloan puts Jude down for a nap and pulls out her phone to call Leo. Sloan tells Leo that Eric is on his way to the Spectator office to ask about photography work, so she hoped he could help him out. Leo says he would love to work with Eric but they already have a full time photographer on staff. Sloan argues that she and Eric both need this because of finances as Eric wants to make more money. Leo says he’s flattered that she thought he had any power at the Spectator but he doesn’t. Sloan declares that she’s not taking no for an answer and tells him to use some of his Leo magic. Sloan says no one knows better than her how persuasive he can be when he puts his mind to it. Sloan reminds Leo of his vow of silence in regards to certain subjects Sloan warns Leo to make sure Eric gets the job or else. Leo argues that he’s the one blackmailing her, not the other way around, right as Eric walks in to the Spectator office. Leo then quickly hangs up and greets Eric, calling it a lovely surprise. Eric apologizes for not calling. Leo tells him that he’s welcome anytime. Eric questions who Leo is blackmailing these days. Leo jokes about it and calls it a tactic with his Lady Whistleblower sources and admits gossip is a dirty business. Eric hoped he could catch Chad or Everett and not Xander. Leo guesses he’s throwing his hat in the ring for any photography work he can find. Eric asks how he knew he was looking for anything job related. Leo tells him he’s solo today since Chad and Xander are at the district attorney’s press conference while Everett is out trying to find himself. Leo says he’d be more than happy to put in a good word for Eric. Eric agrees to send him a link to his portfolio.

Marlena tells John that all Chanel and Johnny wanted was a mini-honeymoon and they ended up with a blizzard. They hope that Chanel is found. Marlena tells John that she’s so glad he is here and not in Greece. John says there are so many holes in his memory about what happened in Greece and why, so now Steve is as determined to get to the truth as he is. John talks about putting feelers out to try and find Konstantin’s ex as maybe she was there or maybe it was why they got divorced. Marlena suggests maybe John shouldn’t do anything until he’s prepared for what he will find.

Konstantin asks Maggie what her bad news is. Maggie reveals that she heard back from her legal team and they’ve tried every angle, but they have not found a path forward to extend Konstantin’s VISA. Maggie says she’s so sorry. Konstantin says she has nothing to apologize for as she has gone above and beyond. Konstantin says he will miss the place so very much and he will miss Maggie most of all. Maggie says she will miss him too. Maggie hoped they could figure out something to find a way for him to stay. Konstantin decides he will go pack his bags and exits the room.

Sloan tells Jude that Leo better come through or else he’s going to lose a lot more than his fairy Godfather title.

Leo tells Eric that he will make sure Chad gets his portfolio as he will do anything he can to help Eric. Leo tells Eric to let him know if he ever needs babysitter for Jude. Eric admits that Jude lights up when he sees Leo and likes being around him. Leo says that makes his day but remarks that it’s too bad that Jude is the only one in town that lights up when he sees him. Eric feels that’s not true. Leo says he understands he’s not a great guy and he has a long way to go.

John tells Marlena that he has to be ready for the truth of what happened in Aria. John thinks Marlena would encourage him to follow his gut if she was his therapist and not his wife. John gets a text from his contact in Greece, informing him that Konstantin married a woman named Elizabeth in 1970 in Aria, Greece. John declares they’ve got it. Marlena tells him to make that call, so he does.

Paulina looks out the window and thinks back to being on the phone with Johnny about Chanel missing. Paulina then tells Chanel that she shouldn’t have been that close to her. Chanel says it already happened so there’s no reason to worry now. Paulina prays it wasn’t a mistake. Chanel jokes about her being radioactive. Chanel then points out that Paulina saved her life. Paulina realizes that she didn’t call Abe so he’s probably worried out of his mind. Paulina goes to call Abe. Johnny then returns and is relieved to find Chanel inside. Johnny talks about seeing the snow plow and hoping someone found her and they did. Johnny then sees Paulina inside and realizes it was her. Paulina declares that she wasn’t going to let anything stop her from finding her daughter. Johnny says he was losing his mind as he’s never been so panicked in her life. Chanel feels pain so Paulina worries that she has a sprained ankle. Paulina then realizes that Julie is still out there.

Konstantin angrily goes through his room, searching for his card. Maggie enters and tells him that they need to talk.

Jude wakes up crying as Sloan complains about wanting a break. Sloan remarks that every time she thinks she’s in the clear, something goes wrong.

Eric thanks Leo again and says he should get going, so they will talk soon. Eric exits as Leo gets a call back from Sloan, who asks how it went. Leo says he will do his best, give Eric a top level endorsement and work every angle he can. Eric remains in the open doorway and listens in on Leo.

Julie returns to the cabin, relieving Chanel, Johnny, and Paulina. Julie says she’s fine and thanks Johnny for calling her. Johnny calls it a miracle that their phones are still working. Julie checks on Chanel, who says she’s grateful to be indoors but might have sprained her ankle. Julie calls it such a relief and asks who found her. Johnny explains that Paulina drove the snow plow across the bridge to save Chanel. Paulina repeats that she was going to find her girl. Julie says they are all very grateful but Paulina should’ve stayed in isolation as she exposed all of them to radiation, so she hopes that Paulina didn’t do more harm than good.

John talks on the phone, saying he hoped it would be all good news but they know how these things work out. John tells his guy to keep looking and let him know if anything else is found. John hangs up as Marlena reveals that she just spoke to Abe, who confirmed they found Chanel safe and sound. John asks about Paulina. Marlena says she is keeping her distance until the first responders arrive. Marlena guesses John’s news isn’t as good which he confirms. John reveals that his source found Konstantin’s divorce papers and there has been no sign of Elizabeth since.

Konstantin apologizes to Maggie for his frustration. Maggie says she’s sorry about Catharina’s card as none of the staff have seen it. Konstantin calls it another disappointment but it doesn’t compare to leaving Salem, Maggie, and Victoria which makes him the most sad. Maggie then says he won’t have to leave as she then proposes to Konstantin.

Harris helps Ava pack her things at Tripp and Wendy’s apartment. Harris jokes about moving it in to his place as they kiss.

Ava can’t believe Clyde wants another favor with his black book. Harris wishes he was there when Clyde called her. Harris mentions trying to track Clyde’s location but he hasn’t left any trail.

Harris declares that he’s going to bring Clyde to justice.

Nicole confronts EJ in the town square and questions his half-hearted apology where he didn’t even mention Tate and his family. EJ claims that he did right before they got there. Nicole questions him as she thought he was genuine about this. EJ argues that he did exactly what he said he would do, no more and no less. Nicole feels it was a lot less since the press barely arrived. Nicole guesses that EJ wants to bury this and questions if he’s even sorry that he locked up Tate. EJ argues that he has a very busy day and they were lucky to get an apology. EJ adds that he just met with the judge over the whole Stefan fiasco and the judge said they will take the plea under advisement, so he has no idea if they will accept or reject the deal. EJ repeats that it’s a very busy day so he has to go as he doesn’t want to deal with the press. EJ tries to walk away but Xander and Chad arrive.

Ava is glad she’s not doing this alone. Harris is glad she told him about Clyde’s call right away this time and thanks her for trusting him. Ava says there’s no one that she trusts more.

Sarah tells Paulina that she knows isolation is a drag but she will be back with her family soon and this whole ordeal will be over. Sarah knows Abe, Chanel, and Johnny are missing her.

Chad says that’s bull and they all know it. Xander calls EJ unbelievable by starting the press conference early to avoid the press. Chad calls it not a good look for EJ. EJ tells them to get out of his way but Xander stops him and says EJ is a civil servant and the press have more than a few questions. Nicole steps away with her phone while Xander tells EJ to start by telling them what he missed and asks if he even apologized to Tate and his parents. EJ states that an apology was given, the family was there, and the matter was resolved. Xander argues there has to be more to it and asks what exactly was said. Chad walks over to Nicole and asks if she doesn’t want to stand by her husband while he’s getting grilled. Nicole claims that’s not her job and he has his own office.

Nicole adds that she’s not interested in talking about this. Chad asks how Holly is doing. Nicole says she’s okay and goes back to school today, so she hopes it all goes well. Chad says he hopes so for both of them and asks how Nicole has been holding up. Nicole thinks she’s at a crossroads after taking care of Holly for almost a year and now she doesn’t know what to do with herself as she thought she would be raising her son. Chad says he’s sorry. Nicole states that God has other plans for her but she doesn’t know what they are yet. Ava and Harris enter the town square as Xander asks EJ if the family were satisfied with his apology. EJ claims they were completely and now he must get going. Xander stops EJ and asks if there’s any progress in finding out who shot Harris and set him up. EJ talks about the police investigation and claims his office have offered their full support. Xander then notes Harris and Ava walking through, so he asks Harris if there are any leads in finding the actual shooter. Harris says a public statement should come from the police commissioner. Xander asks where they are in the search for Clyde Weston. EJ responds that they have initiated a nationwide manhunt for Clyde which Xander questions. Ava suggests to Harris that they go grab a coffee and walk away.

Paulina checks her laptop and sees that her office just sent her a transcript of EJ’s press conference.

Sarah warns Paulina about her heart rate rising and suggests she finish work a little later. Sarah encourages her to think happy thoughts for now.

Chanel’s phone rings with a call from Paulina so Julie asks if they should just let it go to voicemail. Johnny says then Paulina will start to worry and just keep calling, so he answers it. Paulina questions where Chanel is. Johnny claims she’s in the shower and he saw it was her calling so he didn’t want her to worry. Paulina responds that she is worried because she heard about the storm, so she asks if everything is okay there. Johnny claims everything is great and asks how isolation is. Paulina says it’s boring but she’s fine and will get through it. Paulina apologizes for interrupting their honeymoon and says she just wanted to check in. Johnny says it’s no problem and he will tell Chanel that she called. Paulina tells him to tell Chanel to call her after her shower. Johnny agrees to do so and hangs up. Johnny tells Julie that he will go find Chanel and then Paulina will never know and won’t have to worry. Julie warns Johnny to be careful as he exits the cabin. Julie then prays to St. Anthony to help Johnny find Chanel. Julie thinks back to talking with Chanel and telling her about the time capsule before she left to go help Johnny. Chanel’s phone then rings again with a call from Paulina. Julie answers so Paulina questions why she’s at the cabin. Julie explains that she came for an overnight getaway to get out of the house but she had no idea that Sarah had told Johnny and Chanel they could use it for their honeymoon. Paulina guesses that Julie had to stay because of the snow which she confirms. Julie says the roads are blocked and nobody can get out. Paulina asks where Chanel is since she told Johnny to have her call after her shower. Julie says they decided to take advantage of the weather, so they are out playing in the snow. Paulina hopes they dressed warmly. Julie assures that she bundled them up. Paulina tells Julie to have Chanel call her. Julie says she will and hangs up.

Ava and Harris walk through the town square with their coffee. Ava tells Harris that she’s sorry he had to be put on the spot with questions. Harris understands that Xander wants to know who set him up. Ava says she’s sorry for all the trouble she brought his way. Harris argues that Clyde did that, not her. Ava says she made things complicated and he still covered her. Harris says he used Stefan to help her and he would do it again. Harris calls Stefan a weasel but says he was under Clyde’s control like Ava was, but not for long. They look over where Chad and Xander are still trying to interview EJ. EJ tries to say he has to go but Chad asks how much time the district attorney’s office is recommending that Stefan serve in his plea deal. Chad says any nepotism or conflict of interest would be interesting for the readers. EJ asks if Chad interviewing him isn’t conflict of interest. EJ states that there was a hearing this morning but the outcome has yet to be decided. EJ says that Stefan’s attorney gave it her best go, but he is quietly confident that Stefan will serve justly for his role in the distribution of tainted narcotics throughout Salem. Stefan then interrupts and announces he actually already has which surprises Harris and Ava as they watch.

Julie calls Doug and tells him that Johnny is out looking for Chanel and as soon as they come back and the roads are plowed, she is going to get the hell off the island. Chanel’s phone rings with another call from Paulina. Julie questions her not giving it a rest. Julie tells Doug that Johnny said she has to pick it up or it would be much worse if it went to voicemail. Julie answers the call as Paulina questions what is going on out there and where Chanel and Johnny are. Julie says to let her check and puts her on hold. Julie tells Doug that she needs an excuse for why Chanel is not answering Paulina. Julie says she can’t tell her the truth but accidentally says in to Chanel’s phone that Paulina will panic if she finds out Chanel is missing which Paulina hears. Julie tells Doug that she will call him back and hangs up. Julie then goes back to her call with Paulina, who questions her daughter missing. Julie realizes she heard her. Paulina demands Julie tell her the truth and asks how long Chanel has been missing and where Johnny is. Julie informs her that Johnny went out to get some firewood and he was gone awhile, so Chanel went out to find him and then after ten minutes, Johnny came back with the firewood but not Chanel, so now Johnny has gone back out to find Chanel. Julie apologizes as she didn’t want to worry her as she’s sure they will walk through the door any second. Johnny then returns without Chanel. Julie asks him where Chanel is.

Stefan asks EJ if he’s surprised to see him and says he’s sorry to steal his limelight. EJ asks how this happened. Stefan reveals that the judge followed the law and agreed to time served, announcing he is now a free man. EJ angrily declares that they are done here and that’s all for questions. EJ storms off as Chad calls out to him that they aren’t done yet and Xander questions if EJ advocated for Stefan’s release. Chad realizes EJ won’t answer and suggests they go talk to Stefan. Xander says he has somewhere else to be and asks Chad to handle it. Chad agrees and thanks Xander for showing up. Xander admits his motivation was to grill EJ about who set him up but that EJ didn’t seem too eager to find out who is behind it or who shot Harris. Chad tells Xander that he’ll let him know if he finds anything. Xander warns Stefan that he’ll see him later as he walks by. Nicole calls this unbelievable as Chad questions how Stefan pulled off worming his way out of prison. Nicole calls Stefan a son of a bitch and demands he start talking now.

Xander joins Sarah at the Brady Pub. She asks how the press conference went. Xander calls it a joke as EJ called the conference before the press even arrived, so they missed most of it. Xander adds that there’s no news on his case and he doesn’t expect any change there. Xander calls the whole thing bizarre, revealing that Stefan showed up. Sarah is shocked and questions that with Stefan being in jail but Xander says not anymore.

Harris and Ava confront EJ in the town square about letting Stefan go. Harris asks how he could be so reckless. EJ argues that Harris is the one who covered up his own shooter to protect Ava. EJ remarks that someday, Harris will regret that. Ava asks EJ how his mother Susan is doing these days. Stefan asks Nicole what her problem is. Nicole responds that Stefan helped put the drugs on the street that almost killed Holly. Nicole gets that Holly is not a DiMera, but argues that they are family. Stefan says he feels terribly about that and he never intended on anyone getting hurt. Stefan says he only let the drugs be picked up and dropped off under the threat of bodily harm to his wife. Stefan says Nicole has to believe him when he tells her that he had no idea the drugs were laced with opioids. Stefan states that he only did it to protect his wife and he’s so sorry. Nicole tells him that he should be apologizing to Holly, but she doesn’t want him anywhere near her. Stefan says that might be difficult since they live in the same house. EJ interrupts and says he wouldn’t be so sure about that. Nicole storms off in tears while Chad goes after her to ask if she’s okay. Nicole doesn’t understand how Stefan could be free after what he did. Nicole knows Clyde was putting screws to him, but argues that he could’ve told the police or EJ. Chad says that Stefan thinks he can handle everything on his own. Chad tells Nicole that he’s sorry. Nicole asks why since he didn’t do anything. Chad says it’s his family and that should’ve never happened.

Julie tells Johnny that Paulina called again and knows Chanel is missing. Johnny instructs Julie to call 911 as he takes the phone to talk to Paulina, who asks if he found Chanel. Johnny says not yet, but Julie is calling for help. Johnny apologizes for not telling her sooner. Paulina asks how long she has been missing. Johnny guesses 30 or 40 minutes. Paulina worries about Chanel freezing to death in the snowstorm. Johnny tells her not to panic and vows to find her even if he has to search the whole island. Paulina says he better as she hangs up and worries about Chanel being out there, cold and alone. Paulina declares that she can’t just sit here and do nothing, so she makes a phone call and says they need to connect her to the Salem Public Works now.

Xander tells Sarah that it looks like he won’t be visiting Stefan at the jail today after all. Sarah brings up Stefan confessing to helping Clyde run drugs through the Bistro and questions how the hell he’s out of jail. Xander guesses he made a deal with the judge and maybe there’s blackmail involved, pointing out that he’s a DiMera so they can’t be surprised at him playing dirty. Sarah complains that this is so wrong and talks about the amount of overdoses that she’s seen come through the hospital and lives being destroyed. Xander calls it unbelievable as Stefan helped poison the whole town. Sarah suggests maybe EJ finagled a deal for him and wonders if he got him out. Xander says it doesn’t seem like they care much for each other but the DiMeras are shady. Xander argues that Stefan was up to his neck in the mess with Clyde, so he wonders if Stefan played a role in making it seem like he was guilty in shooting Harris. Sarah asks what if he did. Xander declares that if Stefan was involved in throwing him under the bus, there will be hell to pay.

Nicole tells Chad that he is not his family, so he bears no responsibility for what Stefan did. Nicole brings up that Chad wrote the article that put out what Stefan did. Chad credits Everett for writing that story but Nicole points out that Chad published it when he didn’t have to and put his family’s dirty laundry in the headlines which says so much about his integrity. Chad argues that he’s made his share of mistakes. Nicole says they all have. Nicole encourages that Chad did the right thing. Nicole remembers when she was a TV reporter having decisions hard to make. Chad questions her being a reporter. Nicole calls it a really long time ago and says she loved chasing after a story and figuring out how to tell it, saying every day was exciting. Stefan warns EJ about reneging on his deal this morning. EJ asks what deal since Stefan signed over everything to him. Stefan argues that he agreed to give back half. EJ asks how to give back half a house. EJ says to forget the house, but they go back to running DiMeras co-CEOs. EJ argues that the board and shareholders will not want that since Stefan is a convicted felon and they made it very clear they don’t want that. Stefan says fine to EJ being CEO but says he gets everything else. EJ refuses. Stefan looks back over at Chad talking to Nicole and asks if EJ told Chad or Kristen about their deal. EJ says he didn’t. Stefan says that’s good because he would hate to see anyone else try to get their paws on what is rightfully his. Stefan brings up EJ saying his blackmail was better than his but says he was wrong. Stefan then threatens that if EJ doesn’t give back what is his, then he will tell Nicole that EJ knew about the drugs being distributed through the Bistro and that he came to him for help but he refused. Stefan warns that if Nicole finds out that EJ could’ve prevented Holly’s overdose, she will never forgive him.

Julie tells Johnny that help is on the way and the first responders will be there as soon as they can get through. Johnny questions where Chanel could be as he’s looked everywhere. Julie suggests she could’ve slipped on the ice or got turned around in all the snow. Johnny admits the visibility is pretty bad so she could’ve just lost the trail. Johnny decides he has to get back out there and find his wife.

Paulina complains on the phone about being told it will be hours before they can clear the bridge. Paulina says she realizes the snow is still coming down but that is not acceptable. Paulina declares that she is the Mayor of Salem and tells them to have the head of their company call her immediately. Paulina thinks back to Chanel yelling at her to stop talking about leaving the planet during her cancer treatment and then promising to get through it. Paulina gets out of the hospital bed after getting dressed, grabs her things, and declares that mama’s coming as she exits the room.

Update written by Joseph

Johnny and Chanel wake up on the couch at the Horton Cabin on Smith Island. They kiss on the couch until Julie walks in. Julie worries that she did it again and says to pretend she’s invisible as she heads back out.

EJ joins Nicole in the living room of the DiMera Mansion and notes that she’s up early. Nicole says she actually went for a run as she needed to clear her head, but she couldn’t stop thinking about how she’s spent the last two months of her life from grieving their son to almost losing Holly. Nicole questions what to do now. EJ asks what she wants to be next. Nicole responds that she doesn’t know. EJ encourages her to take her time and think about it as it will come to her eventually. Nicole mentions that she and Holly will go to the press conference and then she will take her to school. Holly comes in and remarks that she hoped it would be a snow day. EJ informs her that the storm just missed them and remarks that Smith Island got the brunt of it. Nicole encourages Holly that getting back in a routine will be good for her. Holly informs them that she wrote her apology letters to Tate and his family, but questions how to deliver them if she’s not allowed to see Tate.

Brady and Tate eat breakfast at the Brady Pub. Brady encourages Tate to eat but he says he’s not hungry. Brady guesses he’s anxious about the press conference and school. Theresa joins them and talks about how she can’t wait for EJ to have to eat crow in public. Tate asks who else they think is going to be at the press conference.

At the police station, Sloan is with Stefan in the interrogation room. Sloan informs him that they can move forward if he chooses to retain her services but notes it’s an unusual case since he had already worked out a deal prior to seeking an attorney. Stefan responds that he is a DiMera and fearlessness is in their DNA.

Chanel and Johnny eat breakfast at the Horton Cabin. Julie comes back in and announces that she’s not crashing their honeymoon anymore as she is leaving, but Johnny and Chanel revealed that Julie is not leaving because they are snowed in and the bridge is closed. Julie remarks that she’s trapped in a cabin with two newlyweds.

Theresa encourages Tate to eat his breakfast since he has a big day ahead of him. Brady adds that they do have something important to talk about. Tate complains that’s all they ever do. Brady informs him that they know it’s inevitable that he’s going to see Holly at school and instructs him to keep his distance. Theresa states that under no circumstances is he to hang out with Holly which Tate mocks. Theresa warns about Holly dragging him down again while Brady says they are trying to protect him. Tate says he gets it. Theresa hopes he does because Holly is trouble and will screw up his life.

Nicole offers to hang on to Holly’s apology letters so she hands them over. Nicole says she’s proud of her for writing them as she knows it couldn’t have been easy. Nicole asks if EJ is ready for his speech. EJ mocks that it being his dream to issue a public apology. Holly says she’s sorry that he has to do it. EJ says he did what he did because he was sure Holly never would’ve taken those drugs on her own, but she proved him wrong. Holly questions why she did it and suggests her life isn’t as perfect as everyone thinks. Holly brings up being on her third stepfather and EJ’s last name coming with a whole lot of baggage, pointing out that a DiMera put those drugs on the street. Nicole tells her to stop it and not to blame her or EJ because she made her choices and now has to live with it. Nicole tells Holly to get her stuff and they will go, so she exits. Nicole tells EJ that she’s sorry. EJ says that Holly is lashing out at them, but deep down is just mad at herself. EJ then gets a phone call and says he’ll be there. EJ hangs up and tells Nicole that he has to go to a meeting, but he will not be late to the press conference. Nicole says she’ll see him there then and kisses him goodbye as she exits. EJ then tells himself that in this “meeting” which is actually Stefan’s hearing, he will present the judge with a case so weak that she’ll have no choice but to reject his plea agreement.

Sloan tells Stefan that some would call his behavior rash. Stefan points out that he’s hiring her to represent him. Sloan calls it a little late but says they will first discuss her retainer and guesses he’s not so fearless on that. Stefan responds that his finances are in flux at the moment. Sloan notes that he’s a DiMera so funds are at his fingertips. Stefan states that his access to those funds is temporarily on hold. Sloan is suddenly not feeling confident about this arrangement and goes to leave but Stefan stops her and promises to pay her handsomely. Stefan adds that she could also benefit from representing him since he hears her practice has slowed down quite a bit. Sloan tells him that he’s mistaken as her practice is flourishing. Sloan tells Stefan that if he’s not paying upfront, it will cost him double at the end which Stefan agrees to. Sloan says she still has questions and asks why he needs her when EJ made him a sweet deal. Stefan says the deal is only sweet if the judge signs off on it and there’s no way that EJ won’t try to double cross him.

Julie asks Johnny and Chanel what they are going to do. Johnny says they will just have to ride it out, but at least they still have power. Chanel offers Julie some of the breakfast they made. Julie feels terrible, like she’s invaded their honeymoon. Julie suggests after breakfast, Johnny and Chanel can go make memories in the snow. Chanel says they didn’t pack for a snowstorm but Julie says she has them covered.

Tate tells Brady and Theresa that he won’t hang out with Holly. Brady tells him to just focus on making good choices. Tate asks if he can talk about something else and declares that he wants to start working at the Pub again, arguing that it’s good to be productive and he still has to pay back the damages to his old school. Theresa doesn’t feel like it’s a good idea since he’s starting school again and needs to focus on that. Brady agrees that Tate should focus on school work and summer is right around the corner. Tate argues that Roman needs him and he’d be helping family. Tate says if it gets to be too much, he can just quit. Brady decides they will table the conversation for now because today, they need to focus. Nicole and Holly then enter the Pub, so Holly and Tate see each other.

EJ meets Stefan in the interrogation room. Stefan remarks that he’s so glad he could fit him in to his schedule and asks if it’s a busy day. EJ wants to get it over with and asks what he needs. EJ mentions being surprised that his hearing was moved up to today. Stefan says his attorney arranged that for him. EJ questions why he needs an attorney. Stefan argues that his life is on the line. Stefan says EJ may be his brother, but he’s also the district attorney prosecuting him and he doesn’t trust him one bit. Stefan says he needs someone on his side that doesn’t benefit from sending him to prison. EJ feels that he’s wasting time and money. Stefan admits the offer is very generous and a win-win for both of them as EJ gets to brag to the citizens of Salem while he gets the time served sentence. EJ brings up Stefan blackmailing him in to agreeing to the terms. Stefan reminds EJ that he also won a high stakes chess game. Stefan states that at the end of the day, they are family, so he hopes EJ would return his half of the DiMera funds when he returns home. EJ laughs at Stefan thinking he’s coming home. Stefan warns that if he doesn’t, EJ will pay.

Theresa complains about Nicole and Holly entering the Pub. Nicole suggests to Holly that they go to the Bakery instead. Holly argues that it’s a small town, so they can’t just run away every time this happens. Nicole says they can now since she gave Brady and Theresa her word that they would keep Holly and Tate apart. Holly points out that she can give them her apology letters now. Nicole questions if that’s a good idea. Holly feels there’s no better way to make amends than in person. Nicole reluctantly agrees and gives her the letters. Holly then approaches their table and informs Brady, Theresa, and Tate that she wrote each of them a letter and gives them the letters.

Julie gets Johnny and Chanel dressed up in jackets and hats, pointing out that they always keep extra clothes here. Julie says she’s going to call Doug and encourages them to go play in the snow. Chanel decides they should just make the best of it, but says she will want a do-over on the honeymoon somewhere that is hot and tropical as they then exit the cabin.

EJ, Sloan, and Stefan see the judge. EJ talks to the judge about the drug epidemic but the police being able to cut off most of the pipeline. EJ says Salem is now a safer place to live and says the state agrees that time served is in the best interest for all parties. The judge asks if he’s joking, arguing that Stefan is his brother and the plea is nepotism. The judge declares that she is appalled which makes Stefan worry while EJ holds back a smile.

Chanel and Johnny head back inside and tell Julie about how it was cold but they had a lot of fun. Julie suggests they play charades after warming up. Chanel says she’s never played. Julie assures that she’ll love it and says she’ll make hot cocoa.

Tate reads his letter from Holly, which says she’s so sorry for everything she put him through and she wants to be better, noting that next time she’ll keep his sweatshirt to have something of him to keep close to her. Tate then thinks back to being in the park with Holly. Holly and Tate smile at each other. Brady thanks Holly and says she obviously understands how her actions hurt Tate. Brady adds that they appreciate the letters. Theresa thanks her as well. Brady feels like they are finally coming to an end of this situation and he’s very grateful for that. Nicole says they are too. Theresa warns Holly that the letters don’t change how they feel about her hanging out with Tate. Nicole insists that they understand and will continue to abide by their wishes.

EJ tells the judge that all required paperwork is included and the people have spoken. The judge argues that this plea does not support the interest of the public or address the nature of the offense. Sloan presents the judge with a sworn affidavit from the attorney general’s office including the information that Stefan provided, leading to the seizing of narcotics. The judge says that’s well and good but that Stefan shouldn’t get a free pass just because EJ doesn’t want to prosecute his brother. Sloan argues that they are all safer knowing that Stefan curbed the enterprise of Clyde’s. Sloan brings up Clyde having Gabi assaulted in prison because of Stefan refusing to take Clyde’s orders. Sloan says those additional crimes would add years to Clyde’s prison sentence when he is recaptured. Sloan feels time served is a reasonable sentence for Stefan, considering all he has done to make amends. The judge then states that she’s heard from both sides and they may have accepted the court to accept the plea agreement, but in the interest of justice, she will take it under advisement and her clerk will notify them when she has made a decision. She adds that the guard outside will escort Stefan back to his cell as she needs to get to court. EJ thanks her as she exits. Stefan asks Sloan what this means. Sloan says they just wait and she’ll check in on him later. Stefan thanks her for advocating for him today and says he appreciates it. Sloan then exits. Stefan confronts EJ and argues that he deliberately presented a weak case. EJ says that he did exactly what they agreed to and he doesn’t make the rules, so whatever the judge decides is under her discretion. EJ argues that it’s out of his hands. Stefan threatens that he may not have destroyed the only copy of the recording of EJ. EJ threatens back that he will have no problem revealing who really shot Harris Michaels and his blackmail trumps Stefan’s. EJ adds that he still has the agreement where Stefan signed over all off his possessions. EJ tells Stefan that he’ll see him in a few years and storms out.

Johnny, Chanel, and Julie play charades. Julie notes the fire getting low so Johnny decides that he will go out and get some more firewood and exits. Julie comments to Chanel that Johnny is a really lovely guy, bringing up Johnny standing by during Paulina’s illness. Julie asks how Paulina is doing. Chanel says she’s doing really well but is in radiation so she’s in isolation. Julie asks if that means she’s in the home stretch. Chanel says that’s what they are hoping for. Chanel calls the Horton Cabin a really special place. Julie calls it wonderful for the family with beautiful memories. Julie talks about her grandparents always having board games and puzzles for them on bad weather days like this. Julie then brings up the time capsule and informs Chanel how they found it after the house fire and they think it was something to challenge the new generation like a puzzle. Julie mentions it getting colder so Chanel decides she will go help Johnny to bring more firewood.

Nicole and Holly sit at table together at the Pub. Nicole asks Holly if she feels better after handing out the letters. Holly says she was nervous but is glad that it’s over now. Nicole thinks it will help her heal, make better choices, and understand the consequences. Holly apologizes and says she never wants to hurt her like that ever again. Nicole tells her that she loves her. Tate then loudly asks “what the hell” after seeing something on his phone but tells Theresa and Brady that it’s nothing. Theresa says he wouldn’t react like that if it was nothing and takes his phone to see. Theresa then reads a post from a student, saying today is the day that the pill pushing dirtbag comes back to school and asks when he’s going to cause Holly another overdose. Theresa shouts that she’s going to have a conversation with the principal. Tate asks her not to make this a thing today. Brady declares that all of this is going to stop when EJ makes the public apology as that will be all over the news and it will die down. Holly comes over and says she will tell everybody at school that what happened was completely her fault and had nothing to do with Tate. They thank her as Nicole says they are going to get going as they press conference is about to start. Brady says they will see them there as Nicole and Holly exit the Pub while Tate has a smile.

Brady, Theresa, Tate, Nicole, and Holly go to the town square where EJ is speaking at the press conference. Brady questions it already starting and if they were late. Nicole guesses EJ was early. EJ finishes his speech. Brady confronts EJ and asks what the hell was that.

Julie works on a crossword puzzle and complains about a snowstorm in the middle of April. Julie wonders where Johnny and Chanel are so she steps out to look for them. Julie calls out but there’s no answer, so she heads back inside, worrying that they’ve been out there too long.

EJ asks what Brady means. Theresa argues that he started before the press even got there. EJ points out the press but Brady says that’s just EJ’s PR guy and this is not an acceptable apology. EJ tells him it is what it is, so he can take it or leave it. Tate wants Brady to just let it go as he doesn’t care and says he wants to go so he’s not late on his first day back to school. Brady agrees to leave, but tells EJ that he wants a written copy of his apology sent to his office by the end of the day. Nicole tells them that she’s so sorry as she had no idea EJ was going to do this. Nicole knows it’s not what they wanted, but insists that EJ is very sorry and just isn’t very good at apologizing which Theresa mocks. Nicole knows it’s not an excuse but assures that their whole family is really sorry. Brady thanks her as he and Theresa walk away with Tate.

Julie decides that Johnny and Chanel have been out in the cold too long so she’s going to find them but Johnny returns with the firewood. Julie asks what happened. Johnny says the wood was wet so he had to go further to find some. Julie asks where Chanel is. Johnny thought she was here with her. Julie explains that she went out looking for Johnny. Johnny responds that he hasn’t seen her so Julie questions where Chanel is.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh, Nina, how you feeling? Oh, a little groggy. I can’t seem to focus on my work, on the TV, everything. I miss my family, my husband. Yeah, well, the fogginess is from the radioactive iodine, which is normal. Oz is missing your loved ones during the isolation. How are you feeling? Is the nausea still affecting you a bunch?

Some, yes, but the nurse gave me medication. Good, good. Bet your mouth is pretty dry, huh? Oh, I could drink a river. Oh, you should drink a river, please. I’m gonna touch your neck if that’s okay. Let’s just see how we’re doing here.

Do you have any soreness or neck pain? A little. So, how long till I can be released and get back to the real world? It’s like we talked about. It’s a minimum two day stay. It could be up to four. We’ll keep monitoring your radiation levels and as soon as it’s safe to release you, we will. And then you’ll, you’ll have to take some precautions for about a week before you can fully enter the public life.

Ugh, Phil. No wind in sight.

There you are. What happened? Hey, yeah, sorry, I, uh, took so long. The, uh, Chomped wood out back was wet. I think the, uh, the tarp must have blown off during the storm last night. So, I had to go down to the shoreline and find some dry wood. Oh, great. Where’s Chanel? Huh? What do you mean? I, I, isn’t she here? I don’t know.

She’s out looking for you, Johnny. Well, I haven’t seen her. Oh my God. Where could she be? Uh, how long ago did she leave? About ten minutes. Okay, then she can’t have gone far. Um, I’ll call her. I’ll just call her. I’ll let her know that I’m, that I’m back.

Oh no.

Yeah, this is the last of it. You know, I, I moved in here just in October. I swear I did not have all this stuff when I moved in. Yeah, well we’re gonna have to shoehorn this into my place. And I don’t, I don’t think I can bring furniture. What? I’m just not gonna fit. No, come on. Maybe just, um, my reading chair?

Okay, I’ll see what I can do. Thank you. I don’t know. I’m glad to be getting out of here. Because the trip in Wendy? Yeah, I just don’t want them caught in the line of fire again now that Clyde’s still in my hair. God, I just, yeah, I can’t believe he wants another favor with this damn black book. I just, I wish I was there when he, when he called you.

Yeah, well, hearing his voice makes my skin crawl. I’ve been trying to track his location, he hasn’t left any trail. It’s cause he’s a reptile. He’s stealthy and lurking about, just waiting to strike. Yeah, well I’m pretty sure I’ve had more stealth training than that guy. And he’s definitely underestimated who he’s dealing with.

Yeah? You or me? Both. But I’m the one who’s gonna bring his ass to justice.

What the hell was that? That half hearted apology. You didn’t even mention Tate and his family. I did, just before you arrived. Well, it wasn’t much. AJ, I thought you were genuine about this, that you wanted to make amends. I did exactly what I said I would do. No more, no less. Well, it was a lot less, because the press has barely arrived.

You want to bury this, don’t you? Are you even sorry that you locked up Tate? Or are you just embarrassed that you have to make a public apology? Darling, I have a very busy day today. That family is lucky to even get an apology on a morning like this. I just had a hearing with the judge over this whole Stefan fiasco.

Well, how did it go? The judge said that they will take the plea agreement under advisement, which means I have no idea yet if the court is going to accept or reject the deal. And darling, I really do have to go. I have a lot to deal with and I have no time or interest in dealing with the press. Okay.

Press is here. I’ll be hungry, bro. Cause you’re about to eat some krull.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

For you, justice is putting Clyde behind bars. For me, it looks a little different. You know, the last time I saw Clyde, I swore I would slit his throat. He tried to kill the two men that I love most in this world. I’m not gonna let him hurt Tripp again. For you. Or you. You know, I like you better alive. Yeah, so do I.

What if I can’t find this damn black book? You know, I don’t, I don’t even know where to begin looking for it. I worked at the bistro for months. I know every single inch of that place. I never came across it. Okay, we just, we have to, we have to have a plan. We can’t just bust in and tear the place apart. No, no, no, no.

Okay, so we’ll map it out. We’ll do an organized search. Yeah. I’m just glad I’m not doing this alone. And I’m just glad you told me about Clagg’s call right away this time. Thank you for trusting me. There’s no one that I trust more. Well, now that I’m in on this from the start, we can be clad at his own game.

He wants you to find Gil’s black book, we’re gonna find it. And we’re gonna give it to him. And then we’re gonna take his ass down.

I know, the isolation is kind of a drag. But, you’re gonna be back with your family very soon. And this whole ordeal is gonna be over. I know that Abe is missing you. And Chanel and Johnny are gonna be back in a couple of days. They’re up at my family cabin in Smith Island right now. Mm, yeah, I know. Chanel told me all about it.

Oh, a little honeymoon getaway. Yes, it’s very sweet. Johnny was, uh, very excited to surprise her. Although I don’t think the snowstorm was what they were expecting. More of a winter wonderland than a spring fling. Exactly. I just hope they didn’t lose power and have enough firewood. I mean, we have plenty of firewood.

Warm blankets, and cozy clothes, so I’m sure they’re gonna be just fine.

Damn, okay, uh, Chanel doesn’t have her phone, which means she can’t call us, we can’t call her. So, what are we going to do? I’m gonna go out there and find her. Honey, you circling around looking for her, her circling around looking for you, lost in the snow, it’s the last thing we need. Right, okay, yes, but, I’m taking my phone, obviously, okay, so, if she comes back, you call me, and if I find her, I’ll call you.

I’ve got 80 percent battery, I’m gonna pull up a map, make sure I know where I am in case I stray away from the cabin. Well, let me make you a thermos of something hot you can give it to her when she’s so cold, you know? Uh, only if you hurry. Oh, yeah, I’ve got the Coca Cola already made. Just take a minute.

Too late, gentlemen. I just wrapped up the press conference after my office’s public apology to Master Black and I was just discussing how well it went with my wife. Isn’t that right, Nicole? That’s bull and we all know it. You’re unbelievable. Sung a press conference early to avoid the press. That’s not a good look, D.

A. DiMera. Oh, spammy direction. Now get out of my way, news boy. Yeah, not so fast. You’re a civil servant and as members of the press in the city in which you serve, we have a few questions. More than a few.

Why don’t you start by telling us what we missed? Did you apologize to Tate Black and his parents? An apology was given, the family was here, the matter is resolved. There’s got to be more to it than that. What exactly did you tell him?

What’s the matter, you don’t want to stand by your husband while he’s getting grilled? That is not my job, he runs his own office. Right. So, why would he start the press conference early? He didn’t want the press here? Honestly, I have no idea. Were you here for it? Just at the end. And I’m really not interested in talking about this.

How’s Holly doing? She’s okay. She goes back to school today, so I’m just crossing my fingers that all goes well. Well, I hope so. For both of you. How have you been holding up? Alright. I’m at a crossroads, I think. You know, I’ve been taking care of Holly for almost a year, and um, Now I just don’t know what to do with myself.

You know, I thought I’d be raising my little boy, and, I’m sorry. Well, God has other plans for me. I just, I don’t know what they are yet.

Was the family satisfied with your office’s apology? Yes, completely. Now really, I must be going. What about Detective Michaels? Any progress finding a shooter or who set me up? The Salem PD’s investigation into Detective Michaels is ongoing. My office has been giving its full support in the search for the perpetrator who gunned down one of our brave men and women in blue.

We will keep you apprised of any developments. Oh, well, here’s Detective Michaels. Now, excuse me, the D. A. here is attempting to answer my question about the status of the police investigation into your shooting. Any leads, Detective? Is your department any closer to finding the actual shooter? Well, um, you know, a public statement about that case or any other investigation should come from our police commissioner.

Well, what about Clyde Weston? Where are you in the search for him? We’ve initiated a nationwide manhunt for Clyde Weston and his accomplice. Oh, I see. A beyond the lookout alert is a nationwide manhunt. All leads and tips will be investigated. I like this. Let’s go grab a coffee.

Look at that.

My office just sent me a transcript of E. J. DiMera’s press conference.

The drug crisis has a strangled hold over our fair city. Blah, blah, blah. At times we must err on the side of caution. Blah, blah, blah. This was the case with Tate Black as District Attorney of Salem. It’s my job to follow the evidence and prosecute those who have wronged our community. Sometimes the system doesn’t work that way, and for that I offer my apology.

Oh, what is he doing? Oh, so smug. Sleazy! This is not the way that you apologize to a wrongfully accused teenage boy! Your heart rate is rising. Maybe we can finish working a little bit. I guess I’d better. We can dive into all of Salem’s problems later, but for now I just want you to think happy thoughts.


It’s Paulina. Check your divorce file? No, if we don’t answer she’s just going to start to worry and she’s just going to keep calling. Okay. Hey, Paulina, how’s it going? Johnny? Where’s Chanel? Uh, she’s, uh, she’s, she’s in the shower. I just, I saw it was you, so I wanted to pick up. Didn’t want you to worry, you know.

Oh, well I am worried. I heard there’s a storm out there. Everything okay there? Yeah, yeah, no, everything’s, everything’s great here. Uh, how’s isolation? Boring. Uh, but, uh, fine, I guess. I’ll get through it. Sorry to bother you. Didn’t want to interrupt your, your honeymoon. Just checking in on you two. That’s okay.

No, it’s, uh, it’s not a problem. I’ll tell Chanel you called. Yes, please, please. Tell her to call me after, um, the shower. Bye. Will do. Bye bye now.

Okay, I’m gonna go find Chanel. Paulina will never be the wiser. We don’t need to worry her with this. She’s been through enough already, okay? Right, right. Okay. Johnny, be careful out there.

St. Anthony? Patron saint of lost souls and lost things. Please help Johnny find Chanel.

Julie, this, this is a really special place you have. Yes, it is, and it’s been wonderful for the family, always such beautiful memories. And on bad weather days like this. My grandparents always had plenty of board games and puzzles for us. Sort of like the, the time capsule. The what? After the fire at our house, we found a time capsule that my grandparents had left for everyone.

And we think it must have been something to challenge the new generations, you know, like a puzzle. It is getting colder, isn’t it? Yeah, yeah, um, you know what? I’ll go help Donnie. Oh, honey, you don’t have to do that. I’ll be right back. I know, I know. But still, I think that two hands will bring back more firewood for us all.

Very practical. Thank you. Thank you, darling. Be careful out there. Paulina,

it’s Julie. Julie? Why are you at the cabin? Well, I just wanted a little overnight getaway. You know, just take a break from the house. And, uh, and I had no idea that Sarah had told the kids they could use the cabin for, for a little honeymoon. Oh, you had to stay there because of the snow. Exactly. Exactly.

And the roads are all blocked and nobody can get out. Even the ferry has stopped service. Oh, well, uh, where, where’s Chanel? I told Johnny to have her call me after her shower. Ha, but it’s the sweetest thing. They decided to take advantage of this weather. And the two of them are out, playing in the snow. Oh, well, well, I hope they, they dress warmly.

Oh yeah, yeah, I, I bundled them up, nice and toasty. Um, all right. Well, just please tell her to call me. Yeah, yes, yes. Bye bye. I’ll have her do that. Bye. Um, I’m sorry that you were put on the

spot like that. Yeah, yeah. Alexander questioning you and all. Comes with the territory. Can’t blame him when he wants to know who set him up. And my shooter is his link to finding out. Honey, I hate all the trouble that I’ve just brought you away. Clyde did that, not you. Yeah, but it made things complicated.

You still covered my ass. Yeah, I used Stefan to help you, and I would do it again. Look, Stefan’s a little weasel, but he was under Clyde’s control, like you were. And not for long.

I really do have to get going. How much time has the DA’s office recommended that Stephan DiMera serve as part of his plea deal? Considering you guys are family, any nepotism or conflict of interest would be very interesting for our readers. Oh, and yet here you are. Questioning me? Isn’t that a conflict of interest, little brother?

And in regards to the Stefan DiMera case, there was a hearing this morning. The outcome has yet to be decided. Now, while Stefan’s attorney gave it her best go, I am quietly confident that he will serve justly for his role in the distribution of tainted narcotics throughout Salem and the surrounding areas.

Actually, I already have.

Doug, darling, I am taking deep breaths. Well, Johnny’s out looking for Chanel and the moment he comes back with her and the roads are plowed out I’m gonna get the hell off this island Of course, of course, I’ll be careful darling it did hang on It’s Paulina again, can’t this woman give it a rest

Johnny said I had to pick it up, otherwise it would be much worse if she went to voicemail. Honey, hang on, hang on, just hang on a second.

Me again! Julie, what is going on out there? And where’s my daughter? And my son in law? Uh, just let me check. Darling? Darling, it’s me again. Uh, listen, I need an excuse for Chanel’s not answering Paulina. I can’t tell her the truth. Listen, if she finds out that her daughter’s missing, the woman will panic.

Well, honey, if you can’t come up with any Listen, I gotta I gotta take this. I’ll I’ll call you back.

Paulina, you’re not gonna believe this. You’re damn right I’m not. My daughter is missing. Oh, God, you heard me. Tell me the truth, Julie. Now, how long has Chanel been missing, and where is Johnny? Okay, this is exactly what happened. Johnny went out to get some firewood and he was gone a while and Chanel thought he’d been gone too long, so she went out to find him.

About 10 minutes went by. Then Johnny came back with firewood, but no Chanel. So now Johnny’s gone out again to find Chanel. Oh, my lord. I’m so sorry, sweetheart. I I I didn’t want to worry you because there’s no reason to worry. I’m sure the two of them are gonna be just walking through that door any second now.

Well, there they are. Where is Chanel?

You surprised to see me, brother? Sorry to steal your limelight. And, uh, how did this happen? Judge followed the law, agreed to time served, and I’m a free man. That’s it for today. No more questions. Thank you all for coming. EJ. EJ, we’re not done here yet. Did you advocate for your brother’s release? He’s not going to answer.

Let’s go talk to Stephen. Hey, uh, do you need me? There’s somewhere I need to be. Uh, no, no, no. Thank you for coming. I got it. Sure, but honestly, my motivation was to grill EJ about who set me up. He doesn’t seem very interested in finding out who’s behind it. Or who shot Michaels. Well, I’ll let you know if I find anything.

This is unbelievable. I’ll catch up with you later, mate. So you wound your way out of prison. How’d you pull that off? You son of a bitch. Start talking, now.

Hey, you made it. How’d the press conference go? I don’t know. What a joke. EJ called the conference before the press even arrived. We missed most of that slimeball. Did you confront him about your case? Yes. No news on that front. I wouldn’t hold your breath for anything to change there. The whole thing was bizarre.

Why? What happened? Well, get this. Stefan DiMera showed up. What?! He’s in jail. Not anymore.

You allowed Stefan to go free. How could you be so reckless? Me? You covered up the ID of your own shooter to cover for this slippery snake. Someday you’ll regret that. Speaking of which, how’s Susan doing these days?

What is your problem? You are my problem. You are my daughter’s problem. You helped put those drugs on the street that almost killed her. My God, those pills could have slipped through your hands. You know what? I get it. Holly is not a Demira. But she is family. You and I are family. Nicole, I feel terrible.

About what happened to Holly and I never intended on anybody getting hurt I only allowed those drugs to get picked up and dropped off the loading dock and that was under the threat of bodily harm to my wife You have to believe me when I tell you I had no idea those drugs were laced with opioids I Only did what I did to protect my wife.

That is it and I am so Sorry Well, you should be apologizing to my daughter. But you’re not going to because I don’t want you anywhere near her. Well, that may be difficult since we live in the same house. What? Oh, don’t be too sure about that. Hey, hey, hey. Are you okay? I, I, I don’t understand this. Chad, how could that loser be free after what he did?

I know Clyde was putting the screws to him, threatening Gabby, but he could have told the police or EJ or anyone. Someone could have done something. Because Stefan thinks he can handle everything on his own. Okay, well he’s handled it brilliantly this time. I know. I’m sorry. Why? You didn’t do anything. I know, but that’s my family.

And that should have never happened.

Paulina called again? Yes! And she knows that Chanel is in the sink. I just called 911.

Hey, Paulina, hey, it’s, uh, it’s Johnny. Johnny? Did you find her? No, not yet, but Julie’s calling for help. All right. And, and, uh, and I’m, and I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I didn’t tell you sooner. Oh, well, how long has she been missing? I don’t know. Maybe 30, 40 minutes. My God. Oh, she’s out, out there in the snow storms.

Oh, she could freeze to death. Okay, look, Paulina, please don’t panic, all right? I will find her. I’ll search this whole island if I have to. Well, you better. Oh, my poor baby girl. It’s a snowstorm out there. She’s cold and alone. What? Oh, I cannot just sit here and do nothing.

Hey, Shelby, Shelby, it’s me. Yes, you need to connect me to the Salem Public Works. Now!

So, um, Um, Looks like I won’t be paying a visit to Stefan at the jail today, after all. But didn’t Stefan confess to helping Clyde run drugs through the Bistro? Yep. Then how the hell is he out of jail? He must have made a deal with the judge. I mean, look, he’s a demerit. Can’t be surprised that he played dirty.

Maybe there was blackmail involved. This is so wrong. You have no idea the amount of ODs I have seen come through the hospital. Holly wasn’t even close to the worst of it. There’s lives being destroyed, families are grieving. It’s unbelievable, I mean, Stephan helping to poison his own town. Maybe EJ finagled a deal for him.

You think he got him out? I mean, it doesn’t seem like they care too much for each other, but You know, these DiMeras, they’re shady tricks, who knows, right? But Stefan, he was up to his neck in this mess with Clyde. I just can’t help but wonder if maybe he did play a role in making it seem like I was the guilty party in Harris shooting.

What if he did? Believe me, if Stefan was involved in throwing me under the bus, There’ll be hell to pay.

You are not your family, Chad. You bear no responsibility for what Stefan did. Quite the opposite, actually. I mean, you wrote that article about Stefan working for Clyde. No, Everett Lynch dug up that story. He’s the one that wrote it. Okay, but you published it and you didn’t have to. You put your family’s dirty laundry in the headlines.

That says so much about your integrity. Well, I’ve made my fair share of mistakes, Nicole. Haven’t we all? Look, you did the right thing. And I, you know, I remember when I was a TV reporter, And we had decisions that were hard to make, some tough calls. Wait a second, you were a reporter? Yeah, I mean a really long time ago.

Oh gosh, I remember those days. I loved it so much. You know, chasing after a story and figuring out how to tell it and working against the clock. Every day was exciting. Don’t get any ideas about reneging on our deal, brother. After that pathetic performance in court this morning. What deal? You signed over everything to me.

And you agreed to give back half. How can I give you back half a house? Shall we grab some chalk and draw a line through the center of the mansion? No, forget the house. DiMera, you and I go back to running DiMera together as co CEOs. I don’t think the board or the shareholders will want that. They will not want you back.

You’re a convicted felon. They made it very clear that it would not be a good idea for the company or you. Fine, you’re CEO, but I get everything else. I don’t think so.

You didn’t happen to tell Chad. About our little deal, did ya? Or Kristen? Certainly not. Good. Because I’d hate to see anybody else try to get their paws on what’s mine. You said earlier that your blackmail is better than my blackmail. You’re wrong. You see, EJ, if you don’t hold up your end of the deal, and give me back what’s rightfully mine, I’m gonna tell Nicole that you knew drugs were being moved through the bistro.

And that I came to you for help, and you refused to do a thing about it. You wouldn’t. Wouldn’t I? EJ, if Nicole finds out That you could have prevented Holly’s OD. She’ll never forgive you. And you know it.

Are they coming? Help is on the way. Uh, those first responders will be here as soon as they can get through and until then we just gotta sit tight. Damn it. I mean, where, where, where, where could she be? I’ve been everywhere. She could have slipped on the ice. She could have just gotten turned around with all the snow falling and Yeah, yeah, the uh, the visibility is pretty bad.

She could have just, she could have just lost the trail. Right. I just, I came back to get the, the sled in case uh, In case she’s hurt or something. I gotta get back out there and find my wife. What do you mean it’ll be hours before you can clear the bridge? Yes. Well, I realize that it’s still coming down, but that is not acceptable.

I’m the mayor of Salem and you will have the head of your plow crew call me immediately. I need you to understand that you are my mother, and I love you, and I need you. So don’t you dare talk about leaving this planet any time soon, because I will not put up with it. Do you hear me? Oh, alright, baby, alright.

You have officially gotten through to me, okay? I’m sorry, I’m so sorry. Yeah, you should be. Oh, well. Okay, how about this? Promise, I will not leave this planet for a very long, long time. And, in fact, I’m gonna go in there tomorrow and kick cancer’s ass so hard they won’t I don’t even know what hit it. That’s more like it.

Now I love you. Hang on, baby girl. Mama’s coming.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh, good morning, beautiful. Hey, take a wild guess what day it is. Besides our honeymoon? Yeah, just take a wild guess. Tax day? Technically, yes, but take a wild guess. Yeah. I don’t know. Why don’t you tell me? Uh, okay. If you insist. Today is national take a wild guess day. Oh man, they have a day for everything now.

What’s the next, sleep on the couch day? No, actually it’s kiss your new husband day. Oh, really? Yeah, so.

And would you believe it? Today also happens to be get naked in a cabin day. No, isn’t it? Yeah.

Oh no, I did it again. I’m not here. I’m invisible. I see nothing. I’m going back there. Carry on.

Penny for your thoughts? Take a wild guess.

Mwah. Good morning, darling. You’re up early. Yeah, I actually went for a run. Just needed to clear my head. And did you? Well, um, the cold air felt good, and it certainly woke me up. But I couldn’t stop thinking about how I’ve spent the last few months of my life. And now grieving for our son and almost losing Holly and then going through recovery with Holly and, and now what?

I mean, what do I do now? What do you want to be next? I don’t know. Well, the good news is you don’t have to decide this very minute. Think about it. Take your time. It’ll come to you eventually. Yeah. Well, Holly and I are going to go to the press conference and then I’m going to take her to school. I was hoping it’d be a snow day.

Oh, I’m sorry, sweetheart. The storm just missed us and school is still in session. But be thankful you’re not on Smith Island. They copped the brunt of it. And getting back into a routine will be good for you, honey. I guess. So, um, last night I wrote my apology letters to Tate and his family. But, how am I supposed to deliver these if I’m not allowed to see him?

Come on, you gotta eat up. We gotta get going soon. Not that hungry. Tate, I get it. I know you’re anxious. You got the press conference this morning at school. I’m not that anxious. Good morning! Morning. Everybody ready? I know I am. Oh, I can’t wait for that Mr. Big District Attorney to eat crow publicly. Oh, I’m so, so, so terribly sorry.

I never meant to treat that dear boy Tate like a criminal. I’m such an idiot. I don’t think EJ’s going to admit he’s an idiot. Well, a girl can dream. So, who else do you guys think is going to be at the press conference? Who will?

Okay, I think I’m up to speed. If you choose to move forward with my services, I can represent you at today’s hearing. Though I have to say, this is, uh, unusual. Case, saying as though you’ve already worked out a deal prior to engaging an attorney. That’s a very bold move. Hmm. What can I say? I’m at the mirror.

Fearlessness is in our DNA.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Oh, good morning. I’ll get you a cup of coffee. Uh, no thank you. I’m not going to be a third wheel on your honeymoon any longer. I’m leaving. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you’re not going anywhere. Why not? We’re snowed in. It’s April! Until further notice, the Smith Island Ferry will remain docked, and the bridge closed due to heavy snow and debris.

I’m trapped in a cabin with two hot little newlyweds.

Please eat your breakfast. You got a big day ahead of you.

It’s gonna take more than one bite to humor me. Tate, look, we do have something important we have to talk about. God, all we ever do is talk things important. Just listen, please. Your mom and I, we know that it’s inevitable that you’re gonna see Holly at school. Just keep your distance. Right. If you see her You keep walking, okay?

Under no circumstances are you to hang out with her. Otherwise, go directly to jail. Do not pass code. Do not collect 200. Okay, Mr. Smart Alec, there’s not gonna be a get out of jail card if you let her drag you down again. I’m not trying to punish you. I’m trying to protect you. Oh, from Holly, the teenage werewolf.

Yeah, well, if the fangs fit. Okay. Mom. You understand what we’re saying, right? Yeah, I get it, okay? Well, we hope so. Because that girl, she’s trouble. I will be damned if she’s gonna screw up your life.

Honey, those letters are starting to look a little crumbled up from your backpack. Do you want me to hang on to them?

Sure, I guess so. I’m really proud of you for writing these. I know it couldn’t have been easy. It was fine.

And are you ready for your speech? Can’t wait. It’s every district attorney’s dream to have to issue a public apology for the wrongful prosecution of a minor. I’m really sorry you have to. I did what I did because I was sure you never would have taken those drugs on your own. You proved me wrong. Gee. I wonder why I did it.

Oh, maybe it’s because my life isn’t as perfect and smooth sailing as everyone thinks. I’m on my third stepfather, and FYI, your last name, it comes with a whole lot of baggage. Is that so? Yeah. Aiden Murrah helped put those drugs on the street. Stop it, okay? Do not blame EJ or me for this. You made your choices, you have to live with it.

Whatever. Alright, you know what, honey? Please, just Get all your stuff and let’s go. I’m sorry. She’s lashing out at us, but deep down she’s just mad at us all. Oh. Uh, I have to take this. Yes? Now? That’s highly irregular. Fine, I’ll be there. I have to go to a meeting, but I will not be late to the press conference.

Okay. I’ll see you there.

And in this meeting, or rather Stefan’s hearing, I will present the judge with such a weak argument that she will be appalled and have no choice but to reject. My plea agreement.

Some would call your behavior rash, Mr. DiMera. He who represents himself as a fool for a client. But see, I’m not representing myself, I’m hiring you to represent me. A little late, but okay. First things first, let’s discuss my retainer. Ah, not so fearless on that, are we? Let’s just say that my finances are, uh, in flux at the moment.

Well, as you pointed out, you’re a Demira. Funds are at your fingertips. Except that my access to those funds is temporarily on hold. Mm hmm. You know, suddenly I’m not feeling so confident about this arrangement. Wait, wait, wait. Please. We will pay you handsomely. That is a promise. But also, from what I hear, you can benefit from representing me because your practice has slowed down.

Quite a bit. Uh, you are gravely mistaken. My practice is flourishing.

But with no payment up front, it’s going to cost you double on the back end. Agreed.

Not so fast. I have questions. Ask away. Your brother made you a very sweet deal. Why do you need me? Because the deal is only sweet if the judge signs off on it. And you’re worried EJ might try and wiggle out of it? I know my brother. There’s no way he’s not going to try and double cross me.

Well, what are we going to do? What can we do? We’re just going to have to rat it out. What? At least we still have power. No television, but we do have Wi Fi, because they rewired the whole island a couple of years ago. And there’s plenty of food, so you might as well have some of the breakfast that we made.

Oh, thank you. I, I feel terrible. I feel like I’ve just invaded your honeymoon like Genghis Khan. Oh, I know. After we all have breakfast, you can go out in the snow and frolic. Make memories. We, we didn’t pack anything for a snowstorm. Don’t worry about that. I got you covered.


Mom, I get it. Okay, you’ve, you’ve told me a million times I won’t hang out with Holly. But, uh, Good. Just keep your distance and focus on making good choices. Yeah. Okay. But, can I talk to you about, uh, something else? Oh, this isn’t about a car, is it? No. Not yet. Uh, but, but it is about, uh, making good choices.

Like you said, being responsible. Um, I want to start working here at the pub again. And, and before you say anything, it’s good for someone my age to be working, being productive. And, and, and I still have to pay you back for the damages to my old school. Yeah, I don’t think that’s a good idea. Look, just let me finish, okay?

You’re, you’re starting back up at school again. You’re still catching up. You really need to just stay focused on that. Okay, Mom. But, no. Tate, I’m with your mom on this one. Okay, I think you should focus on your school work. Summer’s right around the corner anyway. But I already talked to Uncle Roman and he needs me.

I’ll be helping family. That’s important too, right? It’s, it’s good for someone. I know. If it gets to be too much, I can just quit. Mm hmm. And I’ll tell you what, we’ll table this discussion for now. Because today we need to focus on

So glad you could fit me into your schedule. Busy day? Let’s get this over with. What the hell do you want, Stefan? Ah, want. Need. So many things. Really. Let’s start with today’s hearing, though. Yes, I was surprised to get a call that it had been moved up to today. My attorney arranged that for me. Your attorney?

Why do you need an attorney? Because my life is on the line, EJ. Now, you may be my brother, but you are also the district attorney who is prosecuting me. And let’s be honest, I don’t trust you. Not one bit. Feelings mutual. See? So can you blame me? EJ, I need somebody on my side who doesn’t stand to benefit from sending me to prison.

Considering my very generous offer, you’re wasting time and money on legal representation. Let me worry about that. But yes, your offer is very generous. It’s a win win for both of us. You get to brag to the citizens of Salem how you saved them from a very costly trial by finagling my plea deal, and I get the recommended sentence of time served.

Yes, I’m familiar with the terms, since you blackmailed me into agreeing to them. Yes, I blackmailed you using a recording that I made of you incriminating yourself. Not to mention winning a very high stakes chess game. Let’s not forget that. But EJ, yes, we are family at the end of the day. And as my brother, I would hope that you will return my half of the DiMera funds upon my return home.

Home? You think you’re coming home? Oh, I know I am. Because if I don’t, you’ll pay. Huh?

Dammit, what are those two doing here? Um, honey, why don’t we go to Sweet Bits instead? Mom, it’s a small town. This was bound to happen. We can’t just run off every time it does. Well, we can run off now because I told Tate’s parents that I supported their decision to keep you two apart. And I am not going back on my word, okay?

Let’s go. Wait, my letters. I could hand them out to them since they’re all here now. Are you sure that’s a good idea? Um, well, you’re the one who said I need to make amends. So what better way to do it than in person? Won’t it mean more that way?

I suppose you’re right. Here.

Miss Donovan, Mr. Black. Tate, I wrote each one of you a letter. I was hoping it’s okay if I give it to you now.

See? We always keep extra clothes up here, just in case. So glad you do. Yeah, yeah, they’re really nice. They fit really well. Nice and roomy. Well, I’m gonna call Doug, and you kids go out and play!

Are we five? Are we five year olds? Hey, let’s just make the best of it, okay? Okay, fine. What else can we do? Hey, look, I do want to do over on this honeymoon, and I want it to be somewhere nice and hot and tropical where I can wear a bikini. And I can take it off you without Julie walking in. Let’s go. Get out!

Okay. Your Honor, as you’re aware, our city has been plagued with a drug epidemic that has destroyed lives, torn families apart. It’s been an uphill battle. But, with the information provided by Mr. DeMere in regards to his business arrangement with Clyde Weston, the police have been able to cut off much of the pipeline of drugs into our fair city.

Our, uh, office has cleared several cases, and by doing so, Salem is now a safer place to live. Based on all this, the state agrees that time served is a fair sentence and in the best interest of all parties.

You’re joking, right? Of something of this importance, I would not. Stefan DiMera is your brother. This Plea is the epitome of nepotism. Considering the nature of the offense and taking into account the best interests of this community, I must say, I am appalled.

How was it? It was cold, but we actually had a lot of fun. We made snow angels. Yeah? Yeah, and then I got stuck in mine, and I couldn’t get back up again. And I tried to bend down and help her, and then I fell. We both got stuck. Yeah, and then we were just both on the ground, upside down, like some upside down turtles.

Oh, what an image, what an image. Well, listen, once you warm up, what do you say we have a nice game of charades? Charades, huh? Oh, I haven’t played charades since. I actually don’t think I’ve ever played charades. Oh, darling, you’re gonna love it. You’ll just love it. I’ll make us hot cocoa. And as I remember, Grandpa Tom always kept some, some rum to spike the cocoa with.

There might be cognac, too. Yummy.

Dear Tate, I’m so sorry for everything I put you through. I promise I’ll do better. I want to be the kind of person who deserves someone like you. But, next time, I’m keeping your sweatshirt. Just so I have something of yours to keep close to me.

My hero.

Well, thank you, Holly. You obviously understand how your actions are important to us. I do. And we do appreciate the letters, don’t we? Yes. Thank you. I feel like we’re finally coming to an end of this situation. For that, I’m very grateful. We are too.

Just so you know, Holly, These letters that you’ve written here do not change how we feel about you hanging out with our son. We understand and we will continue to abide by your wishes, right honey?

Your Honor, all the required documentation is included here in this file. It’s clear the people have spoken not to my satisfaction. This plea does not support the interest of the public, nor does it sufficiently address the nature of the offense. Your Honor, may I approach?

May I refer you to the affidavit prepared and sworn to by the Attorney General’s office? It includes a breakdown of all the cases resulting from the information that Mr. DeMera here provided on Clyde Weston’s criminal enterprise. Thanks to my client, you’ll note the many incidents resulted in the seizing of narcotics.

Thank you. That’s all well and good. But Mr. DiMera shouldn’t get a free pass just because this Mr. DiMera doesn’t want to prosecute his brother. Your Honor, as citizens of Salem, we are all much safer knowing that my client curbed the enterprise of a well known drug kingpin. He did so under extreme duress.

Mr. DeMera’s wife was assaulted and under constant threat from Mr. Weston’s associates while in custody of our state’s prison system, which obviously failed to protect her. Mrs. DiMera suffered severe injuries, including a broken leg, because her husband refused to take orders from Clyde Weston. These additional crimes will add years to Mr.

Weston’s prison sentence upon his recapture. Whenever that may be. I’m confident that the authorities will apprehend Mr. Weston. In the meantime, time served is a reasonable sentence, considering all that Stephen DeMere has done to make amends.

I’ve heard from both sides. And while you may have expected this court to accept this plea agreement, here and now, and enter it into the record, in the interest of justice, I’m going to take this under advisement. My clerk will notify you when I’ve reached a decision. Mr. DiMera. The guard outside will escort you back to your cell.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get to court. Your Honor. What’s this

mean? It means we wait. I’ll check in on you a little later, okay? Thank you for advocating for me today. I appreciate it. Thank you. Okay.

What was that? What? What? You were going to let her throw out our agreement. That was not the deal. You deliberately presented a weak case. You wanted her to be involved. I did exactly what we agreed upon. No more, no less. We are both beholden to the justice system. I don’t make the rules. Whatever the judge determines is based on her own discretion.

Okay? Oh, so that’s it, huh? You think I’m gonna let some funky judge ruin my plans? It is out of my hands now. Is it? Hmm? Maybe, brother, I didn’t destroy the only copy of that tape. Oh, I wouldn’t put it past you, so, so take this in. I am more than happy to reveal who shot and nearly killed Detective Michaels.

You would not. Oh, try me. So why don’t you get your ass and go back to your cell and keep your mouth shut like a good little boy. My blackmail trumps your blackmail any day of the week. I am sides. I still have a binding agreement. Turning over all your wealthy possessions to me. See you in a few years. O broski

flat. It’s, it’s a box. It’s a flat, flat. You’re un, you’re op, you’re unscrewing it. You’re opening it. You’re ouch. It was hot. Hot. It did it. It’s a, is it a stove? It’s a stove. Cat on a hot tin roof! Yes! Oh! You’re really good at this. Oh, you’re too kind. You guys need a break. Gee, the fire’s getting pretty low, isn’t it?

Ah, fear not. I will go out and get us some more firewood. Oh, thank you, Johnny. Thank you very much. You got it. Thank you. Watch out for the bears!

He’s really a lovely guy, isn’t he? Oh, yeah. I will definitely have to agree to that. Yeah. So, I know he’s been standing by wonderfully for you during your mother’s illness. Yeah, he’s been amazing. And Paulina. How is she doing, really? Tell me. She’s getting better. Um, she’s going through radiation right now, which requires complete isolation, so you can imagine how much she’s loving that.

Yes, I can. But if it’s radiation, that means she’s in the homestretch. Yeah, that’s what we’re hoping. Julie, this, this is a really special place you have here. Yes, it is, and it’s been wonderful for the family, always such beautiful memories. And on bad weather days like this, my grandparents always had plenty of board games and puzzles for us.

Sort of like the, the time capsule. The what? Oh. Well, after the fire at our house, we found a time capsule that my grandparents had left for everyone. And we think it must have been something to challenge the new generations, you know, like a puzzle. It is getting colder, isn’t it? Yeah, yeah. Um, you know what?

I’ll go help Johnny. Oh, honey, you don’t have to do that. Oh, I know. He’ll be right back. I know, I know. But still, I think that two hands will bring back more firewood for us all. Very practical. Thank you. darling. Uh huh. Careful out there.

You feel any better handing out those letters? Yeah, I was kind of nervous, but I’m just glad it’s over now. Well, I think it’ll help you heal. And make better decisions by understanding that our choices can have severe consequences. I know. Mom, I’m so sorry for everything. I never want to hurt you like that ever again.

Thank you, honey. I love you so much. I love you too. What the hell? What? What is it? It’s nothing. It’s nothing. Don’t worry about it. Nothing? You wouldn’t react like that if it was nothing. Let me see that. Let me see. Today’s the day the pill pushing dirtbag comes back to school, bets on when he slips H. J.

some more dance fever and she O. D. ‘s again. Dance fever? It’s slang for opioids. Who wrote this? No, some jerk. It doesn’t matter. Well, you know what? After I drop you off, I’m gonna go and have a little conversation with the principal.

Um, please, just don’t make this a thing, just not today, okay? All of this, all of this is gonna stop once EJ makes the public apology. Alright? It’ll be all over the news. Yeah, well, teenagers don’t watch the news, do they? Well, it’ll die down. My mom and I just saw the post. They’re being really unfair. Yes, they are.

Well, I just want to let you know once I get to school, I’m telling everybody that what happened was completely my fault. It had nothing to do with Tate. Corey, thank you. Um, sorry. We’re, we’re gonna get going. The press conference is gonna start. Okay. Uh, we will see you guys there.

As District Attorney of Salem, it is my job to follow the evidence and prosecute those who have wronged our community. It already started? What are we, late? Sometimes the system doesn’t work that way, and for that I offer my apologies. I, I, I guess E. T. ‘s early. I will continue to try

to make Salem a safe a snowstorm in the middle of April. Where are the kids?

Chanel? Johnny? You out there? They’ve been

out there too long.

What do you mean, what was that? The press conference, per your demands. You started before the press even got here. That is not what we demanded. The press is right there. Are you kidding? That’s your PR guy, EJ. This is not an acceptable apology. It is what it is. Take it or leave it. Excuse me? Dad, just let it go.

I don’t care. Well, I care. No, it’s over. It’s done. Hey, let’s just go. I don’t want to be late on my first day back to school. Mom, come on. Tate, okay. We’ll leave. I want a written copy of that apology sent to my office by the end of the day, okay? Go tell Bob. He’ll give you what you want. Uh, Tate, I am, I am so sorry.

Brady, Teresa, I had no idea EJ was gonna do this. And I know it’s not what you wanted, but I do know that EJ is very sorry for everything that Tate went through. And he’s just not very good at apologizing. Oh, fool. Poor EJ. Okay, I know it’s not an excuse. But our whole family, we are really sorry. Thank you.

Let’s go.

That does it. They’ve been out in the cold too damn long. I’ll just go out myself and Walk around the cabin and Hey! Oh! There you are! Johnny! What happened? I, uh, it just, uh, the wood out back was wet. Oh. I think the tarp flew off in the storm. And so I had to go down by the shoreline to find some dry wood.

Good. Looks great. Yeah, yeah. Where’s Chanel? What? Isn’t she here with you? No, Johnny. She went looking for you. Well, I haven’t seen her. Oh my god. Where is she?

Days of Our Lives Update


Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Paulina uses her laptop in her hospital room. Sarah enters to check on her. Paulina says she’s fine and isolation is great for work, but she’s looking forward to getting out. Sarah reminds her that the treatment is essential to her recovery. Paulina understands being radioactive and asks if Sarah is worried since it’s dangerous to babies and she wouldn’t want to hurt Victoria. Sarah assures that she’s taking all necessary precautions and has her treatment progresses, the amount decreases significantly. Paulina mentions that she’s not bad other than a bit of nausea. Sarah says they can get her something for that and the pharmacy will have it up to her ASAP. Sarah asks if there’s anything else. Paulina says she can’t think of anything else other than to thank her as she’s grateful for the wonderful care she is getting. Sarah tells her that it’s her pleasure. Sarah encourages her to rest and hydrate. Sarah then presents an “I love you” card that Abe made for her. Sarah says if she needs her, she’ll just be a call away as she exits.

Konstantin tells Maggie that he can’t thank her enough for opening her home to him and she has saved him in so many ways, but his time here is truly done. Maggie insists that she doesn’t want him to leave. Konstantin says leaving her will be truly hard so Maggie tells him not to leave and that there must be another way. Konstantin suggests perhaps there is.

Julie has a drink in the hallway at the Kiriakis Mansion while commenting to herself on what a day it’s been. Julie says the mansion is chaos 24/7 with too many guests, drama, babies, and children. Julie declares that it’s time for her to relax with a really good book but Thomas runs into her, knocking her drink out of her hand.

Johnny and Chanel return to the Horton Cabin from hiking on Smith Island. Johnny talks about getting the full experience. Chanel admits it was amazing. Johnny calls her his stunningly beautiful wife as they kiss. Johnny and Chanel drink Italian wine as they reminisce on their time in Italy. Johnny surprises her by having their favorite dinner from Italy set up, revealing he cooked it and brought it with them so it’s heating up as they speak. Chanel calls him the best. Johnny says he’s married to the best as they toast to their honeymoon.

Abe thanks Sarah for delivering his card to Paulina. Sarah tells Abe that he can visit Paulina virtually since it’s against policy for him to enter her room. They sit together as Abe asks how Paulina is really doing since she puts on a brave face. Sarah encourages that she’s doing really great. Sarah says Paulina’s only job is to rest and stay comfortable. Abe knows Paulina never wants to stop working. Sarah hopes that she lets her body recuperate from the trauma and surgeries, but she knows Paulina. Sarah thinks if anyone can break through to her, it’s Abe. Abe agrees to see what he can do.

Thomas apologizes to Julie. Julie questions why he was running in the house like that. Chad comes in and apologizes, explaining that they were playing hide and go seek. Chad acknowledges that everyone’s a bit on top of each other here. Thomas comments on the weather. Julie says there’s rotten weather everywhere as she dreamed of getting outside for a few hours. Thomas apologizes to Julie again. Julie says it’s just wine.

Maggie asks Konstantin how she can help. Konstantin talks about only having a work VISA and he has no family to sponsor him while joining the US army is out of the question, so the only other option he can think of is something he’s mentioned before but he’s reluctant to bring up the possibility. Maggie assumes he’s talking about marriage which he confirms. Maggie thinks it would set off red flags and they’d see right through it. Maggie mentions having access to the most brilliant lawyers in the country, some of whom are dedicated to immigration law, so she will get them to look in to this. Konstantin calls her far too gracious and generous. Maggie encourages that they can get through this and find a way to extend that VISA. Xander enters with Victoria. Maggie tells him how happy she was when she spoke to Sarah and heard the good news which Konstantin questions. Xander informs him that he’s been fully exonerated from the shooting of Harris Michaels and he’s a free man. Konstantin congratulates him and calls him a very lucky man, but Xander notes that luck had nothing to do with it as he was innocent, so the truth was on his side. Maggie says they knew that for sure. Xander adds that maybe luck is with him today if he heard Konstantin is having VISA troubles. Xander asks if he needs a ride to the airport.

Johnny and Chanel finish their dinner. Johnny notes they still have dessert and he likes spoiling her. Johnny suggests they stop talking about how much they love Italy and just go back to Italy. Chanel assures they will get there, but right now she’s just loving being in this cabin with him as they kiss. Chanel suggests they skip dessert. Johnny says he first wants to show her something that he thinks she will get a major kick out of. Johnny heads outside in to the cold and returns with two sticks, revealing they are going to make smores but Chanel doesn’t think so.

Sarah sets Abe up on her tablet and tells him to take as much time as he needs while she goes on break. Abe then opens up his virtual chat with Paulina. Paulina tells him that she’s just finishing up a text. Abe points out that the work day ended a few hours ago. Paulina talks about having reports and spreadsheets still to go through. Paulina mentions a funding bill. Abe advises her on it but Paulina assures that she’s got this and can do the job no matter what’s going on with her.

Julie tells Chad that it will be lovely when they can just go home again, but for now, she will settle for a glass of wine and a good book. Chad apologizes again as Julie says goodnight and heads in to her room. Chad tells Thomas to slow down in the hallways and stay out of the bedrooms as they resume their game of hide and seek. As Chad starts counting, Thomas then enters Konstantin’s bedroom.

Maggie tells Xander that she has her lawyers looking in to extending Konstantin’s VISA. Xander questions why. Maggie explains that Konstantin has come to enjoy this country, so she doesn’t want him to be rushed to leave as he should be able to decide when is the right time for him to go back to Greece. Konstantin thanks Maggie and doesn’t know how he will ever be able to repay her. Xander remarks that he could exit graciously. Konstantin declares that home is where ever he may lay his head. Xander argues that they all know Konstantin can’t go home because a certain criminal syndicate in Greece has made it clear that he can never go back. Maggie understands there will be logistical issues and she has no doubt that when the time is right, Konstantin will return home to Greece. Konstantin thanks Maggie and claims that he looks forward to returning home as well as to taking Maggie back to Greece as well. Xander points out that Maggie won’t have much time for traveling as Sarah told him that Maggie is considering returning to work at Titan which she confirms. Xander says that Titan would be lucky to have her. Konstantin agrees. Maggie asks what’s next for Xander now that his nightmare is over and asks if he’s thought about returning to Titan as well. Xander thinks he will have his hands full with the Spectator to better serve the town’s best interests. Victoria wakes up crying, so Maggie goes to get her teething ring. Maggie runs in to Julie, who complains about the noise. Julie tells Maggie that she loves her and is grateful for her but she has to get out of the mansion for at least one night as she needs a break from this. Julie says she loves the family but she’s pining for her own house. Maggie encourages her to go. Julie asks her to keep an eye on Doug as he’s already asleep. Julie says she’ll be back sometime tomorrow and will just go pack a bag. Julie doesn’t know where she’s going but says she’s going to have a lovely time.

Abe encourages that Paulina can do anything she puts her mind to but he wants her to rest. Paulina questions sitting on her hands even after getting a message that EJ has called a press conference tomorrow without any notice to her office. Paulina remembers she has to call EJ and tells Abe that she will call him back in a few minutes. Abe says to let him know when she’s back online as they hang up. Paulina then calls EJ and tells his assistant that it can’t wait, so she expects him to return this call immediately as they need to discuss serious issues, starting with his press conference. Paulina declares that she will be waiting for EJ’s call as she hangs up.

Johnny asks Chanel what’s wrong with smores and calls it a classic dessert. Chanel explains that her problem is with the sticks and reveals she found actual supplies while the sticks are dirty. Johnny argues that the sticks come from nature but agrees to go along with Chanel’s way. Johnny decides happy wife, happy life as they kiss.

Xander gets Victoria settled down. Maggie returns with the teething ring. Xander thanks her but points out that Victoria is no longer screaming. Maggie gives him the ring anyways just in case. Chad enters and asks if anyone has seen Thomas but they haven’t, so Chad says he will continue the hunt. Xander asks if they can chat about work stuff. Chad says they can make it quick. Konstantin decides it’s a perfect time for he and Maggie to take an evening stroll, so they exit.

Paulina gets on video chat with Chanel. Paulina says she’s much better now that she’s seeing her. Chanel asks about the radiation which Paulina makes jokes about. Chanel doesn’t want to worry about her, so Paulina assures that she’s fine. Paulina asks how Chanel is. Chanel tells her that the woods are beautiful, it’s really peaceful and it’s been great. Paulina says she’s needed to decompress after a crazy couple of months. Paulina tells Chanel to get back to her honeymoon. Chanel sends their love and asks her to let them know if she needs anything. Paulina says she will as they hang up. Paulina then gets a text message that upsets her as she declares that is not going to work for her at all.

Thomas remains in Konstantin’s bedroom and says he can’t give up as he has to win the game of hide and seek. Thomas starts looking through the drawers in the room and finds the book that includes the card that Konstantin used to control John. Thomas picks up the card and calls it so cool.

Chad guesses that Xander is not a big fan of Konstantin which Xander calls an understatement. Chad thought Konstantin was redeeming himself as he’s been great with the kids. Xander asks about the repairs on the house. Chad notes him changing the subject very fast. Chad says the repairs are going well and asks what he wanted to talk about in regards to work. Xander says he just wanted to give him a heads up that he plans to be more active at the Spectator now that he’s a free man. Chad says that’s great as they are poised to break some big stories this cycle. Xander asks how Everett has been doing. Chad responds that he’s a strong investigator with great instincts but he has been distracted with some personal stuff lately that he doesn’t want to get into. Chad notes that he could really use the help. Xander tells him that he has a story for him as he’s interested in who framed him which he wants to run with. Xander adds that he’s surprised there wasn’t more coverage on Stefan’s arrest as he thought Chad would have the inside scoop. Chad says he won’t make excuses for Stefan but he thinks he made some choices based on threats made against Gabi and he thinks they would do the same thing in the name of love. Xander still feels Chad would have more insight based on having one brother on the side of the law and one brother not. Chad says he makes a conscious effort to stay out of his family’s business for his mental health and his children’s safety. Chad tells Xander that if he wants to get his hands dirty, he can go nuts. Chad adds that EJ has a press conference tomorrow and he doesn’t know what it’s about but he’s going to be there. Xander decides he will join Chad, so Chad agrees to text him the details. Xander says he should get Victoria home while Chad notes he should get his kids to bed and they agree to talk tomorrow. Xander wishes Chad luck in finding Thomas in hide and seek which Chad says he’s going to need as Xander exits with Victoria.

Maggie and Konstantin sit together in the park. Konstantin comments on Salem being a magical place and understanding why Victor settled there and how it inspired Victor to create a new life for him and his family. Maggie notes that she wasn’t born in Salem but she will always consider it her home. Konstantin says it seems to have that affect on people. Konstantin adds that something about Salem feels right for him. Maggie asks if he’s sure about that after everything that has happened.

Paulina gets back on video chat with Abe and asks what is going on. Abe says he was planning on telling her and maybe he overstepped, but he wants her to focus on healing. Paulina thanks him which surprises Abe. Paulina admits that Abe overstepped, but she’s glad that he did because with everything going on, her mind is not operating how she wants as it feels foggy which the doctors said would be a possible side effect. Paulina talks about not liking being separated from Abe. Abe encourages that it’s only a couple more nights. Abe says at least Paulina is warm in her room because they might get snow tonight which surprises Paulina. Abe adds that the real storm is going to miss them as it seems to be heading south towards Smith Island. Paulina worries about Chanel and Johnny and wonders if they should tell them to come home. Abe says it wouldn’t be safe to drive anywhere, so the safest place for them is to be cuddled up in front of the fireplace at the cabin, enjoying their honeymoon.

Johnny asks Chanel if everything is okay. Chanel says she’s just worried about Paulina as she knows she’s hating the isolation. Johnny encourages that it is the last of her treatment. Chanel also worries about Paulina’s job as Mayor being stressful. Johnny thinks Paulina is doing an incredible job and that she thrives under pressure. Johnny adds that Paulina has all their support, so she’s going to be fine. Chanel tells Johnny that he’s also doing an incredible job at knowing exactly what she needs to hear as they hug. Johnny and Chanel start kissing on the couch until Julie walks in to the cabin, startling them.

Paulina reminds Abe to water the plants in the kitchen window. Abe says he will take care of everything and encourages her to rest. Paulina complains on having another day of isolation tomorrow. Abe says he’ll download some magazines for her to read. Paulina thanks Abe for being her person and taking such good care of her. Abe says he loves her to the stars and back. Abe tells her to sleep well as they hang up.

Chanel apologizes to Julie as they weren’t expecting her. Johnny questions what she’s doing there. Julie points out that it’s the Horton Cabin. Chanel explains that Sarah let them use it. Julie realizes it’s their honeymoon and apologizes. Chanel and Johnny say it’s ok. Julie says she’s leaving now but they say she can’t since the snow is picking up and there’s no street lights on the island. Julie admits the last mile of driving was challenging. Chanel asks her to stay as they’d be really worried about her. Julie points out there is only one bedroom. Chanel tells Julie to take it after the drive she had but Julie argues that it’s their honeymoon. Johnny assures that the couch is comfortable and they’ll take it. Julie admits she doesn’t want to drive back in the snow and dark, so she agrees to stay and promises to lock the door and stay out of their way. Julie then takes her bag and heads to the bedroom.

Xander brings Victoria to join Sarah at the Pub. Sarah asks about the visit with Maggie. Xander says it was fine apart from Victoria teething like crazy. Sarah asks if Konstantin was there. Xander confirms that he was and he just doesn’t feel right when Konstantin is around. Xander adds that he sensed something was more off than usual. Sarah says maybe he’s overthinking it. Xander does not like their daughter being in Konstantin’s presence and now every time Maggie takes care of her, he’s going to be in the picture. Sarah states that his feelings are valid but points out that nothing has happened in months. Sarah declares that ever since Maggie paid off Konstantin’s debts, life has been quiet and safe. Xander doesn’t equate quiet to safe, pointing out that the Greek mafia don’t just go away.

Maggie tells Konstantin that she loves him having there but she sometimes wonder how he tolerates being surrounded by people who wronged him in the worst ways like John and Steve. Konstantin talks about letting go and says if his time in Salem is running short, he wants to make the most of the time he has left. Konstantin asks Maggie to dance with him. Maggie points out there’s no music. Konstantin responds that when he’s with her, there is music in his heart so they dance together.

Thomas talks about how cool the card is until Chad finds him in Konstantin’s room. Chad questions what he’s doing there as he’s not supposed to be in there. Thomas apologizes and says it was a cool place to hide. Chad asks how he’d like it if someone was in his room. Chad asks Thomas if he touched anything. Thomas swears that he didn’t while crossing his fingers and hiding the card behind his back. Chad then sends Thomas to go brush his teeth.

Great for work. Although am I ever looking forward to getting out of here. I do appreciate how hard this must be, but The treatment is essential to your recovery plan, as you know.

I know, I do know that I am literally radioactive. Mm hmm. And, uh, Sarah, aren’t, aren’t you worried? I, I, I mean, uh, whatever I got inside of me is definitely dangerous to babies, no? Last thing I would want is to hurt your little one. I really, really appreciate your concern, but I am taking all the necessary precautions.

And, as you progress through your treatment, the amount of radiation emitted decreases significantly. So now, how are you feeling? Oh. Not bad, honestly. Aside from a bit of nausea. Hmm, maybe more than a bit. Alright, we can get you something for that, that is no problem. Done. Pharmacy will have that up to you ASAP.

Anything else? No, nothing, nothing that I can think of. Except, except to say, Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m so very grateful for all the wonderful care that I’m getting here and especially from you. It’s my pleasure, Paulina. I want you to take this time to rest and hydrate. Oh, and uh, Gabe gave me this to give to you.

Now you just remember if you need anything, I am a call button away. Okay.

Maggie, I cannot thank you enough for opening your home to me. You have saved me in ways nobody ever has. But it would seem my time here is truly done. Constantine, no. That can’t be. I don’t want you to leave. Well, the truth is, leaving you will be very hard for me. Don’t, Constantine. There must be another way.

Well, perhaps there is. What a

day this has been. I am in a bad mood. And so I’m elixir of the gods.

This place is chaos 24 7. Too many guests. Too much drama.

Too many babies yowling. Children stand beating up down the staircase.

And cookie crumbs and everything.

Well, now it’s time for me to relax with a really good book. Ow!

Okay. Where’s the oxygen? Come on, there’s nothing to it. When you said that we were going to go for a hike, I thought you meant a brisk walk around the property. I didn’t think you meant the Oregon Trail. Yeah, but I wanted us to get the full experience. You know, I mean, we were so close to that amazing park.

I mean, I couldn’t believe how stunning that overlook was. Yeah, it was amazing. But nothing is as stunningly beautiful as my wife. I’m sorry, your what? Oh, my, uh, my wife. One, one more time. My wife.

Our favorite, Italian wine. Let me guess.

This is, uh, Castello di Monsanto Chianti. Wow. I am impressed that you remembered. Yeah, and I remember where we discovered it. Mm. Cafe Torino, right? Yeah. Everyone there, they were so friendly. Signore, Signore. Benvenuti. We were there for like seven hours just eating and drinking and talking. Ah, and eating. Uh huh, yes.

Yeah, I’m still working that off. I think we went through two bottles of wine that night. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, I can still smell that bread. Wait, wait, I think I actually do smell that bread. Johnny, you did not. You didn’t think that I wouldn’t have our favorite dinner set up for tonight, did you? Oh, stop! And, that sauce.

You made that sauce? Mm hmm, salsa bolsa nina. I, uh, cooked it at the house, brought it up here with us. It’s heating up as we speak. You’re the best. No, I am married to the best. To our honeymoon. To our honeymoon.

Well, thank you for showing my card to our favorite patient. You are very, very welcome. You can visit her virtually. You’re not going to throw me into her room with a hazmat suit? It’s against hospital policy, unfortunately. Ah, I figured that. Let’s go get you set up. Alright. So How is she doing? I mean, how is she really doing?

Paulina tends to put on a brave face. Yeah, I’m very aware of her tenaciousness, but She’s doing really great. She is. We’re gonna scan her, um, in a few days and see what her radiation levels are. And if those levels are good, then she can leave isolation. So, right now, her only job is to rest and stay comfortable.

God forbid she stop working. But, that’s what makes her the best. Yes. Well, still, I do hope she takes this time for herself. You know, she lets her body recuperate after the recent trauma and surgeries. But I also know Paulina. So do I. Well, I think if anyone can break through, you’re the man for the job.

Let’s see what I can do. I’m so sorry. Thomas! Why were you running in the house like that? Were you on your way to play a soccer match in the atrium? I wouldn’t doubt it. Oh, no, I’m, I’m sorry, Julie. We were, uh, we were playing hide and go seek. Ah. Um, it’s a huge house, so if you, uh, if you play right, you can stay hidden for quite a while.

I should have tried that. Yeah, we’re, uh, a bit on top of each other here, aren’t we? It’s the weather, too. That’s right, Thomas. You know, nobody saw that cold front coming through, but it’s a brave new world. Rotten weather everywhere. To think I dreamed of going outside the house for just a few hours today.

We were going to try to get to the playground to burn off some energy, but best laid plans, right, buddy? Did you apologize to Julie? I’m sorry. Darling, it’s just wine under the drawbridge. I’m just glad it was white. Not red. I can get you a refill if you want. No, I don’t think so.

Constantine, how can I help? Well, it is difficult to get a work visa because of the quotas. Add to that the fact that I have no specialized skills or no family here to sponsor me. Joining the U. S. Army is obviously out of the question. So the only other option I can think of is, well, I have brought it up before, but I am reluctant to even mention it, the possibility of it.

I assume you’re talking about marriage. I am. Yes. Well, won’t that send up a lot of red flags? I mean, I mean, wouldn’t they see right through that? Perhaps you are right, yes. On the other hand, hmm, I have access to the most brilliant and ferocious lawyers in the country. Some Hmm. Let me, uh, let me get them to look into this.

As always, you are far too gracious, Maggie, and generous. We can get through this, Constantine. We’ll find, we’ll find a way to extend that visa. Oh, there they are. Sleeping beauty. And the beast. My little sweetheart. Oh my goodness. Oh, Xander, I can’t tell you how happy I was when I spoke to Sarah. She told you the good news.

Yeah. And what good news is that I have been fully exonerated of the attempted murder of Harris Michaels health. Charges against me have been dropped. Hey, congratulations. You are a very lucky man. Luck had nothing to do with it. I was innocent. The truth was on my side. Yeah, and we knew that for sure.

Although maybe luck is with me today. Meaning? Did I just hear that you’re having visa trouble, Constantine? Do you need a ride to the airport?

Well, I guess somebody owed dues to the Clean Plate Club. And we still have dessert. I like spoiling you. Do you remember that panforte we had after we got married the first time? Oh, it was divine. That entire trip was molto bene. Perfecto. You know what I think we should do? I think we should stop talking about how much we love Italy.

And just go back to Italy. Yeah, we’ll, we’ll get there, okay? But right now, I’m just really loving being here. In this cabin. With my handsome, thoughtful, sexy husband.

How about we skip dessert? I see where you’re going with this. And I like where you’re going with this. But first. I want to show you something that I think you’re going to get a major kick out of. Okay. Okay. Okay. I’ll be right back. Okay. It’s

really getting cold out there. Okay. Here we are. Well, what are we, jousting? Ha ha, very funny. No, we’re going to make some s’mores. Yeah, now who’s being funny? No, I don’t think so.

All right, here you go. All right, thank you. for setting this up. Yes, I’m about to start my break, so just take all the time you need. You sure? I am. I’ll let you get to it. Holler if you need anything. Oh,

oh, one sec. I’m just finishing up a text. You know, the work day ended hours ago, Paulina. Well, maybe so. That may be so. But I have an unholy backlog of e mails, reports, and spreadsheets to go through. Oh, oh. Plus, my favorite council person has to stop pestering me about that funding bill. Tell McPherson to be nice.

He’ll cut that bill in half, and if that doesn’t work, call JP. Abraham! I’ve got this. I can do this job no matter what’s going on with me. And don’t you forget it.

Won’t it be lovely when we can just go home again? But for now, I’ll settle for a full glass of wine and a good book. And now we’ll be mindful with, uh, with the hiding. I’m sorry again. Thank you. Good night.

Start counting! Okay, only if you promise to, uh, slow down in the hallways. Fine. And, stay out of the bedrooms. Alright, those are private areas, we have to respect that. Okay, whatever! No, start counting, please! No, no, no, no, whatever. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six. 16. 17. 27. I was just telling Constantine, I have my lawyers looking into extending his visa.

Why? Constantine has come to enjoy this country. And I want to make sure that he doesn’t feel like he’s being rushed to leave. He should be able to choose when the right time is for him to go back to Greece. The right time for him. Thank you, Maggie. Your generosity is boundless. I don’t know how I will ever be able to repay you.

Maybe a couple million ways. Sander? He could at least consider when he might have won his welcome and exit graciously. You make an excellent point. But the beauty of this country, as I see it, is home is wherever I may lay my head. In theory. Let’s be honest, Constantine. We all know that you can’t go home because certain factions of a certain criminal syndicate in Greece have made it very clear that you can never go back.

Look, nobody is saying there won’t be logistical issues. Logistically, that’s quite the euphemism, Maggie. Okay, look. I know when the time is right, I have no doubt that Constantine will be able to return to his homeland. I thank you very much. Those words mean the world to me, Maggie. I so look forward to going back to my village and I look forward somehow, someday, to be able to take you back to that beautiful corner of the world.

Don’t think Maggie’s going to have much time for traveling, though. Sorry, I was mentioning the You’re considering maybe returning to work at Titan? Yes, I am. I was considering it, yes. Titan would be lucky to have you. I could not agree more. So, um, now that, uh, your nightmare is over And behind you, what’s next for you, Xander?

Have you given any thought to returning to Titan yourself? Oh, yeah, I gave it some thought, but I don’t know, I think I’m gonna have my hands full at the Spectator. Hoping to use my position there as a platform to better serve the public’s best interests. You know, keep the citizens of our fair town informed of all the latest news.

Oh, she’s teasing. Oh, baby, baby. Take care, sweetheart. Perhaps a little whiskey on the gums? Yeah, I don’t think so. Um, you know what? I remember the last time that Sarah was here. She left a TV ring in the freezer. I’m gonna go get it.

You certainly has a set of lungs, or a dozen chains. Victoria! Soprano, echoing through the corridors. Uh huh. Kidding tones. Right. Maggie. You know I love you. Uh huh. And I’m eternally grateful for your hospitality, but I gotta get out of this place, if only for one night. Is everything okay? Everything’s wonderful.

I love everybody. Everybody loves me. But I cannot continue to be Miss Congeniality unless I have a break from this. Okay, I understand your feelings. More than you know. Ha! I love family life. I love the family. I just, I’m pining to be in my own house. Do I sound like an ungrateful grumpy old grouch? No, of course not.

You just sound human. So go read, watch a movie, sleep in. Thank you. Thank you. Do me a great favor. Keep an eye on Doug. He’s already gone to bed for the night. Of course. Okay. I’ll, I’ll, I’ll write him a note and say I’ll be by sometime tomorrow. Afternoon ish, and I’ll just go up and pack a bag. Well, spread your wings and fly, my dear friend.

I don’t even know where I’m going. Who cares? But I’m going, and I’m gonna have a lovely time. Paulina, my love, you can do anything you put your mind to, but I want you to rest and get back to full strength. So I just sit on my hands, even after getting a message that EJ has called a press conference for tomorrow without any notice to my office.

Which, which reminds me, I have to call him. You mind if I ping you back in a few minutes? Okay. No problem. Text me when you get back online. Love you. Love you too.

Paulina Price for EJ? No, I’m afraid it can’t. Could you, uh, put him on the phone now? Yes, I realize what time it is. Yes. But I am the mayor and your boss needs to remember that. I am responsible to the people of Salem and he reports to me on their behalf. Yes, please convey that and my expectation of him returning this call immediately.

We need to discuss some, some serious, serious, serious several pending issues. Starting with that press conference that he’s planning. I will be awaiting his call.

What’s wrong with s’mores? Okay, you have the other charred goodness of the marshmallow. You have the chocolate, the flaky crisp graham cracker. It’s a classic dessert. It’s American. It’s an American staple. Yeah, I agree. My problem isn’t with the dessert. It’s with those sticks. I found these when I was putting supplies away and I found the marshmallows.

Johnny, those sticks are dirty. Oh, come on. We’re, we’re in the woods surrounded by nature. These sticks, these sticks were foraged. Okay, bequeathed to us by mother nature herself. Well, agree to disagree. Fine.

All right, now please accept this confectionary treat and get to roasting. These marshmallows are not going to roast themselves. Okay, well, happy wife. Happy life.

And will you look at that? Not only is she settled, she’s actually smiling at me, aren’t you, darling? I found the ring. Thank you, Maggie. But as you can hear, no more screaming. Our little angel has decided all is well, nothing to complain about anymore. Well, that’s good. But I’m gonna give you this anyway in case our little angel decides that all is not well.

Thank you, Meg. Okay. Uh, hi. Hey! Anybody seen Thomas? Kid’s like an Olympic level hide and seek talent. No, I haven’t seen him, Meg. Okay, well then, uh, I continue the hunt. Oh, hey, before you go, um, can we chat? This is work stuff. Uh, yeah, yeah, gotta make it quick though. I don’t want the kid hiding in a closet or something too long.

Totally understand. Just be a couple minutes. Well, this is the perfect time for us to take an evening stroll, shall we? We’ll let the, uh, boys talk shop. Yes, will you excuse us?

Hi mama. Janelle, oh my sweet baby girl. Are you good? Oh, much better now that I’m seeing your beautiful face. Oh, sight for sore eyes. How’s the radiation going? Ah, honestly, well, never had so much fun. Stop. Oh, feeling like I’m 18 years old again. Oh, did I say 18? I meant 118. Yeah, well, don’t make me start worrying about you.

I was joking. I am fine. How’s the nausea? Oh, nausea I can handle. It’s the isolation that’s got me hanging off the chandelier. Shout out to Syl! Right. Oh, but enough about me. How are you? Well, the woods are beautiful. And, um, it’s really peaceful here. And it’s been great. Just, you know, decompressing. I’m fine.

Well, you needed a sweetheart. It’s been a crazy couple of months. Ah, but, now go, go, get back to honeymooning with that handsome husband of yours. Okay, Johnny sends his love, and I do too. Send mine back. And please, please, please, let us know if you need anything. Oh, I will. Take care, darling. Bye bye.

What? What the? That isn’t going to work for me at all. This stinks.

No, can’t give up. Gotta win this.

Oh, so cool. So I take it you’re, uh, you’re not a very big fan of Constantine.

Kind of an understatement. I thought he was, uh, redeeming himself. He’s been pretty good with the kids since we moved in. Yeah, so I’ve been told. Hey, uh, any progress on the repairs at the house? You change the subject very fast. Um, yeah, repairs are, uh, are going well. So what’s up? You wanted to talk about work?

I did, yeah. Well, I just wanted to give you a heads up that now that I’m a free man, I plan on being more present at the Spectator. That’s great. Especially because we’re poised to break some pretty big stories this cycle. Fantastic. How’s, uh, Everett been doing? Um, you know, he’s a, uh, he’s a strong investigator.

He’s got great instincts, but he has been distracted with some personal stuff lately. So, uh, yeah, I don’t, I don’t want to get into it. Uh, anyway, I could really use the help. Well, I have a story for you. Shoot. The way I see it, the cops might not be too interested in finding out who framed you, I certainly am.

Sounds like a great series for the paper. You want to run with it? Damn right I want to run with it. I want to fly with it. But, uh, about your brother’s arrest, I’m surprised that we didn’t have a bit more coverage of that. I mean, I thought you’d have had the inside scoop, no? Right. Well, look, I’m not going to make excuses for my, uh, for my brother, but I think he made some choices based on some threats that were made towards Gabby, and, uh, and I suspect that you or I would probably do something unexpected in the name of love.

Be that as it may, I don’t know, I thought maybe with you having one brother on one side of justice and one on the other, that you could at least provide a little bit more insight. Yeah, no. Uh, uh, no. I made a conscious effort to stay out of my family’s business for my mental health and my children’s safety.

Uh, but hey, if you want to get your hands dirty, go nuts. You know, my other brother, the uh, inimitable EJ, he uh, he’s got a press conference that he’s holding tomorrow. What about? I don’t know, I tried to figure out the topic, but I’m gonna be there though. Well, maybe I’ll join you. Can you text me the details?

I will. Great. Well, I should probably get this one home. Great, uh, and I should probably, uh, wrap up this game of hide and seek. Get the kids to bed. Uh, we’ll talk tomorrow? Less. Great. And hey, Chad, good luck finding Thomas. I’m gonna need it. Dad? This place. Your home, it truly is magical. Each day I’m allowed to remain, I understand why Victor settled here.

How Salem inspired him to create a new life for himself and his family. Even though I wasn’t born here, I consider Salem my home. I always will. It seems to have that effect on people, yes? Yes. Something about this city, it feels right for me, Maggie. Really? After everything that’s happened? Are you sure about that?

Oh. There you are. Abraham, what is going on? I just got a call from McPherson. I was planning on telling you about that. Look, maybe I overstepped, but I just want you to focus on healing. And I thank you. You do? Yes, I do. Did you overstep? You damn right you did. And I’m glad you did.

With everything going on, my, my mind’s not operating the way I’d like it to. It feels foggy, in the clouds. Doctor said it, Would be a possible side effect. But I don’t like it. What I even like even less is being separated from you, especially after all the time you lost. A couple more nights apart mean we get many more nights together.

I know, I know. Hey, at least you’re all cozy and warm in your room. We might get snow tonight. Snow? In the middle of April? Woo! Well, forecast is for possible flurries. But the real storm is skipping us and heading south. Should be over Smith Island in a few hours. Wait, Smith Island? That’s where the Horton cabin is.

Well, should we call Chanel and Johnny? Maybe they should come home. No, it wouldn’t make any sense to drive anywhere in this weather. Safest place for them to be right now is cuddled up in front of the fire enjoying their honeymoon.

Hey, everything okay? Yeah, yeah. You know, I’m just worried about mama. I know she’s hating the isolation. Yeah, but this is the last of your treatment, right? Yeah, if things go as planned, then yes. But, you know, I also worry about her job. Being the mayor is so stressful and Yeah, well, I think your mom is doing an incredible job.

And plus, I think she kind of thrives under pressure, you know? And she’s got all the support from Abe, from you, from me. Your mom. Is going to be fine. Okay. And you know who else is doing an incredible job? Who? You. At knowing exactly what I need to hear. And giving the best hugs. Come here. Oh

And I um I need you to water the plants in the kitchen window tomorrow, okay? Just put them in the, um In the sink. Run the water for two minutes, no more, no less. Well, it’s just that Chanel is very particular in her plant care, and with her gone, I just I will take care of the plants. I will take care of everything.

Now you go and get some sleep, okay? Right, better get all rested for another day of isolation tomorrow. Oh, can’t wait. I’ll download some magazines for you to read. Well, if it’s a distraction, send it my way. And Abraham, thank you for being my person. And for taking such good care of me. I love you. To the stars and back.

Always. Sleep well, my dear.

I’m so sorry, Julie. We weren’t expecting you. So it seems. Yeah, uh, what are you doing here? This is the Horton Cabin. But Sarah, she told us that we could use it. This is your honeymoon. Oh my God. Oh, I’m so sorry. I’m sorry, John. I’m sorry, Chanel. No, no, no, no, no. It’s fine. It’s just, uh It’s just unexpected.

That’s all. Exactly. Lord, is there no place on Earth where I’m not underfoot? Okay, I’m leaving. I’m leaving now. No, wait. Julie, you can’t leave now. Why not? I’ll go back where I came from. It’ll work. No, no, no. I think he means the snow. It’s really picking up. Yeah, and besides, it’s pitch black out there.

There’s no street lights on the island. You know that. Yeah, well, I noticed it was challenging, that last mile of driving. Yeah, no, just please stay. We’d be worried sick about you out there. There’s only one bedroom. Hey, well, after that drive, you need it. You take it. Oh, on your honeymoon? That’s out of the question.

Don’t worry about it. Okay, look, we’ll, we’ll sleep on the couch. It’s very comfortable. I say you’ve tested it. So, you’ll stay then? All right. I admit I don’t want to drive in the snow and the dark. I’ll stay out of your way. I’ll, I’ll lock the bedroom door. I’ll put on my eye mask. I’ll even put in my earplugs.


was the visit with mom? Well, we Victoria was teething like crazy, but apart from that, it was fine. Was Constantine there? Yes.

And And as you know I just don’t feel right when that guy’s around and, I don’t know, something was even more off than usual. I could just sense it. Maybe you’re overthinking it. Maybe. And if it were just you and me, I’d grit my teeth and barrel through, but I do not like Our daughter being in that man’s presence.

And now, every time your mother takes care of her, he’s gonna be in the picture.

Your feelings are valid. And, nothing has happened in months. In fact, ever since mom paid off Constantine’s debts, life has been Quiet. Dare I say, even Safe. Well, I don’t equate quiet to safe, Sarah. The people Constantine owed, the Greek mafia, They don’t just go away when they’re made whole. That is not their M.

O. Not by a long shot. Constantine, though I love having you here as you know, I sometimes wonder how you tolerate being surrounded by the people who wronged you in the most devastating ways. I mean, knowing what John and Steve did at Victor’s behest. Maggie, I have come to realize that living life to the fullest means letting go of all that does not serve you.

And if my time in Salem is running short, then I would like to make the most of what time I have left.

So dance with me. What? There’s no music. When I’m with you, there is music in my heart. Whoa,

so cool. I’ve never seen one of these before. Maybe it’s an original glare! Thomas, what are you doing in here? This is Mr. Constantine room. You’re not supposed to be in here. I know, but it was an awesome place to hide. That’s not the point. Okay, how would you like it if someone was hanging out in your room?

What am I Did you touch anything in here? I didn’t. I swear. Okay. Come on, let’s go. Go brush your teeth. Don’t run in the hallway, please!

Hi. Hi. Well,

I can see you’re still upset with me. You left these flowers I brought you in your office. I guess I’ll just find a vase to put them in. Be on my way.

I’m really sorry I disappointed you. I regret helping Ava with Weston. But like I told you before, I was scared. I was afraid I was going to lose my son. And it made me do something stupid and reckless.

I guess I’m just going to have to She’s gonna have to live with that. Wait, I need to say something. I know that you feel bad for what you did. As you should. But because I love you, I am going to forgive you for the reckless and boneheaded risk that you took breaking Clyde Weston out of prison. Oh, sweetness.

However, I need to stay mad at you. For at least today. Understand? I do. Good. Thank you for the flowers. They’re beautiful.

So kiddo, what are your plans for spring break this year? No spring break for me. A ton of school work to catch up on, so I’ll probably just hang out with some friends or something. Got it. Tate, I know that your parents have forbidden you to see Holly. Told you that, huh? Yes, they did. How do you feel about that?

Um, it sucks because I like Holly and she’s a friend of mine. They’re probably right about us being toxic for each other, so it’s probably for the best.

I am so proud of you, Holly, for telling the truth that the drugs you used on New Year’s Eve were yours. I know. That couldn’t have been easy. Why are you proud? I should have told the truth from the beginning. Yes, but I know you had your reasons for not doing that. That you were worried about your mom.

Yeah, I was. But still, I lied, Grandma, and I got Tate in terrible trouble. Yeah, you did. Hey, do you have any more tea? Oh, and those lemon berries you usually bake? Yeah. Coming right up. And Holly, listen, um, when I get back, I’d like to continue our discussion. Okay? Okay.

SOS meeting, whatever. I’ve gotta get out of here


Hi. Hi.

I’m kind of in a rush, so. Steph, uh, wait.

I just want to say, I’m so sorry. About everything. I know. This has been hard on you in so many ways. Including how it’s hurt your friendship with Jada. I was really worried when you two stormed out of the spectator office. Actually, Jada and I talked through some things. That’s none of your concern.

However, there is something that I’m curious about. Okay. Do you still have feelings for her? For Jada? What?

Uh, no. No.

How could I have feelings for someone I, I don’t even know? Well, if that’s true, then why would you want to stay married to her? Why won’t you sign the divorce papers?

Ah, well, this is a surprise. What’s up? Uh, nothing. I just, um, I needed to see you. What for? Um, this.

Stands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Look, I, I, I’m not going to sign divorce papers as a man who I, I, I do not even know who he is. But you do know who he is. It’s you. You were ID’d as Robert Stein.

Don’t call me that. Don’t you ever call me that again.

Mmm. You remember that time? A while back when we snuck onto that riverboat on the Mississippi. You were wearing that pretty yellow dress. Your hair was up. Oh my God, you look so beautiful. Every pair of eyes on that boat was just drawn to you. You know, I appreciate you trying to butter me up. But you are not out of the doghouse yet, okay?

I’ll let you know when you are. Uh, okay. Mm hmm. Well, since I’m still in the doghouse, I guess there’s something else I want to get off my chest. And it doesn’t have anything to do with Ava or Weston. What? This happened a long time ago, before us. When I was working for Victor. Okay, I’m listening.

On Victor’s orders, I escorted John to Greece. He was the pawn then and I was his handler. It was my job to protect him and see him through a mission. The mission was to send a message to a man. A man named Constantine. What? Yeah. The same Constantine who recently turned up here in Salem.

Anyway, While we were on the mission, Something terrible happened. Constantine’s daughter, Katharina, Was shot and killed. Possibly by John.

For years, I, I tried to bury it, put it out of my mind, pretend it didn’t happen.

And all this time I did everything I could to protect John from knowing about it. And recently, when he found out he was ready to fall on his sword. And just give himself up, fly to Greece, turn himself in, and possibly spend the rest of his life in a foreign prison.

The thing is, because I was spending so much energy and time protecting John, I forgot to deal with my own feelings about it.

My own guilt. And shame. I think it’s about time I did.

Tate. I’m glad you understand your parents decision that you shouldn’t see Holly. I know it’s gotta be difficult because you’re, you’re fond of her and she’s, and she’s also fond of you. Um, excuse me. Is everything alright? Yeah, uh, It’s my friend Aaron. He’s helping me study for this chem test that we’ll be taking after spring break.

Do you mind if I meet up with him? No, not at all. School comes first. Go study with your buddy. Before I go, everyone’s water’s looking a little low. Let me get a pitcher from the back. Oh, that’d be great. Hey, listen, while you’re back there, could you grab me a hot sauce, please?

You sure about that? Because I distinctly remember somebody begging, pleading, for a glass of milk the last time they used that stuff. No, I wouldn’t call it begging. I just happen to like a little bit of, you know, milk with my, with my hot sauce. I see. Ah, well, who am I to judge?

It’s nice to see you smile. I’m working on a doc. Makes me happy. Well, you’ve been helping me a lot, honey, as always. But you know what? The talk I had with Harris gave me some perspective. And I’m gonna, I’m gonna try to take his advice on how to deal with that. Self forgiveness. I’m going to try to remind myself.

And this is the hard part that I was a victim too. And I choose not to be one anymore. And I, I kind of figured if Constantine was willing to forgive me. Maybe I can try doing the same thing. So I’m trying, Doc. I’m, I’m really trying.

My Katarina. Not a day goes by my heart does not ache for you. Your beautiful life cut short so, so cruelly.

And though I pretended otherwise,

I will never forgive your murderer.

Hands where I can see them. I need you to see something, and tell me what it means, and I will go away.


Are you okay? John?

Who’s John?

If you are not John, then are you the Pong?

I’ve been called that, yes.

My God! I made it! Finally, after all these years. And found you, the one who killed, and I promise you, my precious daughter,

your death will be a,

well, the lemon bars and. Your English breakfast tea. It’s your favorite, right? Yes, it is. Thank you. You’re welcome. Oh, I hope I am not interrupting. Oh, no, not at all. Konstantin, this is my granddaughter, Holly. Holly, this is Mr. Meliones. Holly, I’ve heard so much about you. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Most of it fat, I’m sure.

Oh, no, no. Only that you had a difficult time, and I am so very happy, as your grandmother is, obviously, that you are better now. Thank you. And I must say, you remind me of my daughter, Katharina. She was around your age when she died. Oh my God, I’m so sorry. Constantine is, uh, an old friend of Grandpa Victor’s.

This ting, from Greece. Oh, cool. Uh, well, I really should be heading out now. But you haven’t had your tea or the lemon bars. Yeah, I know, but Mom’s expecting me. Okay, I understand. Sorry. Well, it was nice meeting you. Likewise. Bye, Grandma. It’s my pleasure, darling. Thank you for having me. Listen, you’re gonna go straight home, yes?

Your mom said you needed to promise me. Of course. I’m going home. I love you. I love you too. Bye. It’s terrible. I’m so sorry. But maybe now that it’s out in the open, everybody that was involved in what happened with Grease can let it just, you know, be in the past.

I’m not sure that we can. Why do you say that? Because Constantine’s forgiveness is being all understanding. Letting go of his anger. You don’t think it’s genuine? No, I don’t. I don’t believe it. I mean, his daughter was murdered. His only child. And he’s been grieving. He’s been grieving her. Ever since she died, and he’s been hell bent on avenging her death.

So for him to do a 180 all of a sudden, I’m just not buying it. And as for his devotion to Maggie, I thought from the moment he arrived in Salem that he was scamming her. And I still believe that. So you better believe I will be keeping my eye on him.

Sorry. Didn’t mean to offend you. Everett?

No. No, uh, I’m the one who should be sorry. I, uh, I’ve been really stressed, you know, um, Beyond stressed about, about all of this, uh, It’s Crazy making stuff. As I’m sure you’d agree,

I’m trying really hard to figure this out. In fact, I’m on my way to go see Dr. Evans right now for another Another session. That’s good. Hope you get some answers. Some peace of mind.

Sorry about everything.

Have I told you lately how much you mean to me? I always like to hear it. How lucky I am to have someone. It was so good to me.

Who I can count on.

Who doesn’t judge.

Who won’t abandon me. Even when I’m in trouble. Why,

why, why you say it like that? Are you in trouble?

I need, I need you to answer me. Are you, are you in trouble? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Look, I, I was just, I was, I was just getting a little emotional because I just, I never had someone who’s been so kind to me. You know, it’s, um, caring, and

You know, the only trouble I’m in right now is, I told, uh, Wendy and Chip that I’d be moving out. And I don’t have a place to live. Um, Why don’t you, why don’t you stay here with me? Really? Yeah. Harris, I wasn’t fishing for you. No need to explain. No, as long as you’re cool with being roommates. Roommates?

With benefits? Definitely. Tate, where are you?

I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I didn’t think that that was gonna Scare me? Well, it did, you dork. But hi, um, I’m really glad to see you. Good to see you. Oh, did you turn your phone tracker off? I did, yeah. Good. You know, the only good thing about my mom taking my phone away is she can’t track me. So she has no clue where I’m at.

That is one good thing. How’s the burner working for you? I know the reception can be a bit iffy. No, it’s perfect. Decent reception for sure. But I’m just grateful you could score me a phone at all. We’re good here. And I know my mom and dad are at a meeting. And my mom and EJ are out to dinner on the other side of the park.

Okay. Isn’t it Is it so dumb that our parents are forbidding us from seeing each other? Yeah. It’s like It’s like if Romeo and Juliet had really annoying, overprotective parents. Actually, they kind of did. Yeah, you’re right. Maybe even more annoying than ours, if that’s possible. Well, me and theirs probably wore ruffled poet shirts.

Yeah, I don’t think ours would go for that. No, probably not. Do you think that I would make a good Romeo? I suppose you’re cute enough. Wow, you suppose that I’m cute enough? Okay, fine, fine. Just cute enough? Fine, you’re off the charts cute. Um, and hey, I know this might sound like weird to say, but are parents not wanting us to be together?

It only makes me want to be with you more. Same.

Well, um, I am going for some much needed girl time with Stephanie. See you later tonight? I’ll be here. Okay.

Hi, Kayla. Hello, John. I have something for you. Yeah? What’s that? What was that for? I think you know.

You told her? I did. Would you like a beer? Maybe an ice pack? You can beer me. Okay. Full transparency. I not only told her about Weston’s prison break. I told her about Constantine and Katharina. I just couldn’t keep those secrets anymore. It’s eating me up. Now I feel, I feel relieved. Like a weight’s been lifted off me.

Well, I know that feeling, pal. All too well. Everett. Hi. Hi. Come in. Have a seat. Thank you.

I’m very glad that you’re here. I’m very glad that you’ve committed to learning more about your past.

How are you feeling today?

Honestly, Dr. Evans, um,

I’m struggling. Wishing I were. Anyone but me.

I cannot believe you got my favorite donuts in the whole wide world. I did. Took a little detour to Sweet Bits after bailing on my grandparents at the pub. You know, when they asked me my order, I completely forgot, so I just told them it was the weird shaped one with the chocolate drizzle. Mochi delight.

There you go. Thank you.

It’s, uh, a bit chillier than I thought it’d be, I don’t know. Cheers.

My hero.

Holly is a delightful young lady. Yes, she is. I thank God every day that she’s come back to us. Of course, you do. I don’t think I could have handled another loss, but you know, Holly, when I’m around her, I feel like. I feel like a part of my, my son, Daniel, is still with me. Oh, my children and my grandchildren.

They are the lights of my life.

Oh, Constantina, I’m so sorry.

Um, Let me get this straight. So, Everett is still married to Jada, as Bobby Stein. Someone he doesn’t even remember being. Yeah. I actually ran into him in the square earlier. And he said that he had another session with Marlena lined up. Oh. And um, Well, I hope that he makes some progress figuring out who he is, who he was.

What? Uh, well, you know, nothing really. I mean, I just, I remember you bringing him into the hospital a while back for an examination. It was clear that he had significant trauma to his head, but There was no real proof it had anything to do with memory loss. I remember that too, obviously. Yeah. So, I, um, asked Marlena if maybe she thought he was faking it.

What? I didn’t know that. What did she say? Well, she didn’t really have a clear answer. But she didn’t rule out the possibility. Everett, if you don’t have any memory of being married to Jada, and you, you say you have no feelings for her, and, and you tell me that you love Stephanie,

why don’t you sign the divorce papers?

I just,

I can’t sign as, as someone else. I am not Robert Stein. It would be forgery to sign as him.

I see. But, that’s, that’s not the only reason that I, I wanted to see you here. Today, um, I wasn’t completely honest with you about what I saw. During hypnosis.

What did you see? I saw myself. Staring back at me.

I really need to know what it means.

God, the air is so fresh. I forgot it was even like this. Yeah, I know. We both were stuck inside for way too long. Aside from that, it’s just, it’s really nice to be here, together. Yeah, it really is. Are

you sure about this? It would be great to have your company.

You know, it’s gonna be much safer. Your trip and Wendy. Me not being there.

You know, I still feel so terrible. About all the trouble that I put them through. Putting their lives at risk. No, no, no, but we can’t. You can’t stare in the rearview too long. There’s a big, beautiful road ahead. I know. It’s just that with, you know, Clyde still being out there on the loose, it’s just You know, who knows what goes through his crazy head and he’s gonna come back again or You know, speaking of which,

you got any new leads on Clyde or Officer Gordon? Unfortunately, the trail has, uh, gone completely cold. I mean, they, they know what they’re doing. I suspect they’re long gone by now, if not out of the country. Paris. How I wish she was long gone. Oh, I wish he was long gone by now.

Hey, John. You’re my best friend. My partner. We’ve been through so much together.

So I’m gonna be honest with you. I think that it would help ease my mind, too. If we can get to the bottom of this thing. So will you please let me help you?

Okay. Let’s give it a shot. Good. So where do we start? Where we always do. With facts.

So, on the night that Katerina was killed, there were only three people there, and that was you, me, and Konstantin. Three that we know of. Okay. There were no videos or photos from back in that time. So how are we sure someone else wasn’t there? Well, without surveillance, I suppose we’re not. No, we’re not. If someone else was there, that person could be holding a very dark secret.

Holly! Tate! Nice to see you. Yeah, you too. How’s the physical therapy going? Really well, thanks. Yeah, Kayla, uh, Stephanie, would you guys mind not telling our parents that you ran into us? Why not? Um, because we’re not really supposed to be here with each other. Oh. Please, can you just pretend like you didn’t run into us?

Oh. Well, I won’t say anything. I guess it’s not my place to do that. Thank you. Thank you so much. Yeah, thank you.

Alright, well, enjoy your day. You too. See you later. Bye. Oh my god. That was a close one. Yes, that was. Look, I, I think it’s probably best if we just Yeah, let’s, uh, let’s call it. My mom and EJ are probably gonna be home soon anyways. Okay. Um, okay. Well, I should Yeah, I’m, I’m gonna miss well. Yeah. Oh, your sweatshirt?

Right. Yeah. Oh. Yeah, I, I I would let you keep it, but, you know, your parents might notice. Right, they definitely would. Better you take it. Um, thanks for letting me wear it though. Yeah, you’re welcome. Anytime. See you soon, I hope. Yeah, you will. Soon.

I have to say, I feel kind of bad about not telling on Holly and Tate. Me too, but, Mom, they’re young and in love. And didn’t it kind of remind you of when you and Dad first started dating? Being told to stay away from him. I admit, yes, it did. Made me think of Everett and me too, actually. Although, my parents haven’t told me to stay away from him, I’ve told myself that.

I know you have.

But mom, for some reason, I don’t want to. I think you have very conflicted feelings about him. Very.

And I know I should hate him, block his number, move on. But I,

I still feel drawn to him. And I feel bad for him, for what he’s going through. Baby girl. Well, as your mother, I always, always want to protect you. Tell you to move on. As you said, to not get hurt any further. But I am so proud of how kind and compassionate you are. Two of my favorite things about you.

Everett. Seeing your own image, staring back at yourself, well, I’m not really entirely sure what that means. But clearly you are, are struggling with leading a dual life. And I also think you’re probably struggling with feelings that you’ve got for Jada that you’re not really ready to accept at this point.

Would you be comfortable having another drink? hypnosis session and see if we can’t get to the bottom of some of these things. I’m sorry, uh, no, no more, no more hypnosis, no more, uh, digging. I don’t want to, I don’t, I, some things are better left unknown. Excuse me.

Could Victor have been there? No, he couldn’t have been. He was in Monte Carlo at the time. Because I heard that he bet and won big on a thoroughbred. Wolfgang Amadeus was the name. Hey, what about, uh, maybe one of Stefano’s men?

What about Katharina’s mother? I heard she was living there, right? She was. Yeah, I remember Constantine said that they separated a few years after the girl’s death, so She could have been in the house. Maybe she knows something or saw something. So what do you think partner? Open up a little investigation.

See if that woman’s still alive. And if she is, we can track her down. I think that’s a very good place to start.

No, no, no, no. You have nothing to apologize for Maggie. Oh, I do. It was very insensitive of me to go on about my children and my grandchildren. No, no, no, it was not. I, I delight in your delight. I love knowing that your heart is full. Wow, that’s very kind.

I am going to miss you, Maggie. Miss me? My travel visa is expiring, and I have been denied another extension. I’m afraid I’m going to have to leave Salem.

I’m under the impression you think Clyde is still around.

I don’t think. I know.

Update written by Joseph

Steve brings Kayla her flowers at home but she’s not interested. Steve sees she’s still upset with him and says he will be on his way. Steve tells Kayla that he’s really sorry that he disappointed her as he regrets helping Ava with Clyde, but repeats that he was afraid of losing his son which made him do something stupid and reckless. Steve guesses he will just have to live with that. Kayla stops him and says she knows that he feels bad for what he did, but because she loves him, she’s going to forgive him for the risk he took by breaking Clyde out of prison. Kayla states that she needs to stay mad at him at least for today. Steve says he understands. Kayla then accepts the flowers and thanks him.

Tate eats with John and Marlena at the Brady Pub. John asks Tate about his spring break plans. Tate says he has a ton of school work to catch up on and he’ll probably just hang out with some friends. Marlena brings up Tate’s parents forbidding him from seeing Holly and asks how he feels about that. Tate says it sucks because he likes Holly and she’s his friend but they are probably right about them being toxic for each other so it’s for the best.

At the Kiriakis Mansion, Maggie tells Holly that she’s so proud of her for telling the truth about her drugs. Holly says she should’ve told the truth from the beginning. Maggie understands she was worried about her mom. Holly points out that she still lied and got Tate in big trouble. Maggie goes to get snacks from the kitchen and says she wants to continue their discussion. Holly then texts Tate, saying she has to get out of there.

Stephanie walks through the town square and runs in to Everett. Stephanie says she’s kind of in a rush but Everett stops her and says he just wants to say he’s sorry about everything as he knows it’s been hard on her in so many ways, including how it’s hurt her friendship with Jada. Everett says he was really worried when they stormed out of the Spectator office. Stephanie informs him that she and Jada talked things through but it’s none of his concern. Stephanie then asks if he still has feelings for Jada. Everett says no and asks how he could have feelings for someone that he doesn’t even know. Stephanie questions why he’d want to stay married to her then and why he won’t sign the divorce papers.

Ava goes to Harris’s room and says she needed to see him. Harris asks what for. Ava responds by kissing him.

Everett tells Stephanie that he’s not going to sign divorce papers as man that he doesn’t know. Stephanie argues that he was identified as Robert Stein. Everett warns her not to ever call him that again.

Steve reminds Kayla of the time they snuck onto a river boat on the Mississippi and how beautiful she looked. Kayla says she appreciates it but she’ll let him know when he’s out of the doghouse. Steve says there’s something else he wants to get off his chest that doesn’t have anything to do with Ava or Clyde. Steve adds that this happened a long time ago before they were together when he was working for Victor. Kayla says she’s listening. Steve explains that on Victor’s orders, he escorted John to Greece when he was The Pawn’s handler. Steve says it was his job to protect John and see him through a mission which was to send a message to Konstantin which shocks Kayla. Steve informs her that while they were on the mission, something terrible happened and Konstantin’s daughter Catharina was shot and killed, possibly by John. Steve says for years, he tried to bury it out of his mind and pretend it didn’t happen while doing everything he could to protect John from knowing about it. Steve adds that when John recently found out, he was ready to fall on his sword and give himself up by flying to Greece, turning himself in, and possibly spending the rest of his life in a foreign prison. Steve says that because he was spending so much energy and time protecting John, he forgot to deal with his own feelings, guilt, and shame about it. Steve thinks it’s about time that he did.

Marlena is glad that Tate understands his parents decision that he shouldn’t see Holly. Marlena knows it has to be difficult because they are fond of each other. Tate gets a text from Holly but claims to them that it’s a friend helping him study for a test. Tate asks if they mind if he meets up with him. John tells him to go ahead because school comes first. Tate says he will refill their water before he goes. John asks for some hot sauce too as Tate heads to the back. Marlena tells John that it makes her happy to see him smile. John says she always helps him and notes that a talk he had with Harris gave him some perspective, so he’s going to try to take his advice on self-forgiveness by reminding himself that he was a victim too and he chooses not to be one anymore. John figures if Konstantin was willing to forgive him, maybe he can try doing the same thing, so he’s really trying.

Konstantin sits in his room with a photo of his daughter Catharina and talks about his heart aching for her every day as her life was cut short so cruelly. Konstantin declares that he pretended otherwise, but he will never forgive her murderer. Konstantin then flashes back to his confrontation with John in the park where he was able to control him with a card, turning John back in to The Pawn. Konstantin promises Catharina that her death will be avenged as he then exits his room.

Holly gets Tate’s text to meet in the park in ten minutes. Maggie returns to the living room with snacks. Konstantin enters and hopes he’s not interrupting. Maggie introduces Holly to Konstantin. Konstantin says he’s heard so much about her and it’s a pleasure to meet her. Konstantin says Holly reminds him of his daughter as she was around her age when she died. Holly says she’s so sorry. Maggie explains that Konstantin is an old friend of Victor’s, visiting from Greece. Holly decides she should get going. Maggie points out that she didn’t have her tea or lemon bars. Holly claims that Nicole is expecting her and promises to go straight home as she exits.

Kayla tells Steve that she’s so sorry but maybe now that it’s all out in the open, everyone involved can leave it in the past. Steve is not sure because he doesn’t think Konstantin’s forgiveness is genuine. Steve talks about Konstantin grieving Catharina’s death and planning to avenge her, so he’s not buying his 180. Steve adds that he thought from the moment he came to Salem that he was scamming Maggie and he still does, so he will be keeping an eye on him.

Stephanie tells Everett that she’s sorry as she didn’t mean to offend him. Everett says he should be sorry as he’s been really stressed about all of this. Everett says he’s trying really hard to figure this all out and he’s on his way to see Marlena now for another session. Stephanie hopes he gets some answers and peace of mind. Everett says that he’s sorry about everything and walks away.

Harris and Ava lay in bed together. Ava tells him how much he means to her and talks about having someone who is good to her that she can count on, who won’t abandon her even when she’s in trouble. Harris questions her saying that and if she’s in trouble. Ava claims she was just getting emotional because she’s never had someone be so kind to her. Ava mentions telling Wendy and Tripp that she would be moving out, but she doesn’t have a place to live. Harris invites her to stay with him. They joke about being roommates with benefits as they kiss.

Holly meets Tate in the park. Holly says she’s really glad to see him as they hug. They talk about turning off their phone trackers and Nicole having no idea where Holly is. Holly is grateful that Tate could get her a burner phone. Tate mentions his parents being in a meeting while Holly says her parents are at dinner. They talk about it being dumb that their parents are forbidding them from seeing each other and joke about comparing it to Romeo and Juliet. Holly says that their parents not wanting them to be together only makes her want to be with him more as they kiss.

Kayla tells Steve that she’s going out for some much needed girl time with Stephanie. Kayla says she’ll see him later tonight and goes to leave right as John arrives. Kayla hits John, who questions what that was for. Kayla says she thinks he knows and then exits. John guesses Steve told her, which he confirms. Steve admits to John that he told Kayla about Clyde’s prison break and about Konstantin and Catharina because keeping the secrets were eating him up. Steve says he now feels relieved, like a weight has been lifted off of him. John responds that he knows that feeling all too well.

Everett goes to Marlena’s office for his next session. Marlena is glad he’s there and that he’s committed to learning more about his past. She asks how he’s feeling today. Everett responds that he’s struggling and wishing he were anyone but him.

Tate and Holly eat donuts from the bakery in the park. Holly mentions being chilly so Tate gives her his jacket and wraps a blanket around her as she calls him her hero.

Konstantin tells Maggie that Holly is a lovely young lady. Maggie talks about being grateful that Holly came back to them and how she makes her feel like part of her son, Daniel is still with her. Maggie calls her children and grandchildren the lights of her life. Maggie then apologizes to Konstantin.

Kayla meets Stephanie in the town square. Stephanie explains to Kayla how Everett is still married to Jada as Bobby Stein, who he doesn’t remember being. Stephanie mentions Everett telling her that he has another session with Marlena lined up, so she hopes he makes progress in finding out who he is or was. Kayla remembers Stephanie bringing Everett to the hospital for an examination and it was clear he had head trauma but no signs of memory loss. Kayla reveals that she asked Marlena if she thought Everett was faking it. Stephanie is surprised and asks what she said. Kayla says that Marlena didn’t really have an answer but didn’t rule out the possibility.

Marlena questions why Everett won’t sign the divorce papers. Everett responds that he can’t sign as someone else because he is not Robert Stein, so it would be forgery to sign as him. Everett adds that’s not the only reason he wanted to see her today. Everett then reveals that he wasn’t completely honest with her about what he saw during hypnosis. Marlena questions what he saw. Everett informs her that he saw himself staring back at him and he really needs to know what it means.

Tate and Holly hold hands and talk about the fresh air as they were both stuck inside for way too long. They agree that it’s really nice to be here together. Kayla and Stephanie then walk through the park and run in to them.

Ava texts Tripp that she will be home soon to collect her things as she found a place to stay. Ava asks Harris if he’s sure about this. Harris confirms he is and they kiss. Ava feels it will be much safer for Tripp and Wendy with her not being there. Ava still feels so terrible about all the trouble she put them through with their lives at risk. Harris says she can’t stare in the rear view too long because there’s a big, beautiful road ahead. Ava worries about Clyde still being out on the loose and who knows if he’s going to come back again. Ava asks Harris if he has any new leads on Clyde or Goldman. Harris says unfortunately, the trail has gone completely cold so he suspects they are long gone by now and possibly out of the country. Ava responds that she wishes Clyde was long gone by now.

Steve tells John that he’s his best friend and his partner. Steve says they have been through so much together so he’s going to be honest with him. Steve thinks it would ease his mind if they could get to the bottom of this thing, so he asks John to let him help him. John agrees to give it a shot. Steve asks where to start. John says with the facts. John brings up the night that Catharina was killed, there were three people there and that was them and Konstantin. Steve points out that’s all they know of but there are no videos or photos, so he questions how they can be sure that someone else wasn’t there. Steve states that if someone else was there, that person could be holding a very dark secret.

Kayla greets Holly and Tate, saying it’s nice to see them. Kayla asks Holly about her physical therapy which she says is going well. Tate asks them not to tell their parents that they ran in to them because they aren’t supposed to be with each other. Holly asks them to pretend like they didn’t run in to them. Stephanie agrees not to say anything and Kayla guesses it’s not her place to tell. Tate and Holly thank them, so Stephanie tells them to enjoy their day and Kayla says she’ll see them later as they continue on. Holly tells Tate that was a close one. They decide it’s best to call it a day. They agree to see each other soon as they kiss goodbye.

Stephanie and Kayla walk back through the town square. They admit they feel bad not telling about Tate and Holly. Stephanie points out that they are young and in love and compares it to Kayla and Steve. Stephanie admits it also made her think of her and Everett since she has told herself to stay away from him, but for some reason, she doesn’t want to. Kayla understands she has very conflicted feelings. Stephanie knows she should hate him, block him, and move on, but she still feels drawn to him and feels bad for what he’s going through. Kayla tells Stephanie that she always wants to protect her and tell her to move on to not get hurt any further, but she’s so proud of how kind and compassionate she is as she hugs her.

Marlena tells Everett that she’s not entirely sure what seeing his own image staring back at himself means. Marlena says he’s clearly struggling with a dual life and thinks he’s also struggling with feelings for Jada that he’s not ready to accept. Marlena asks if he would be comfortable with another hypnosis session to get to the bottom of these things but Everett says no more hypnosis or digging. Everett declares that some things are better left unknown as he then leaves her office.

John asks Steve if Victor could’ve been there. Steve says he couldn’t be as he was in Monte Carlo at the time where he won big on a bet. Steve asks about one of Stefano’s men. John brings up Catharina’s mother living there. Steve confirms that Konstantin said they separated a few years after so she could’ve been in the house or maybe she knows something. John suggests they investigate to see if she’s still alive and if she is, maybe they can track her down. Steve agrees that’s a very good place to start.

Konstantin tells Maggie that she has nothing to apologize for but Maggie feels it was insensitive to go on about her children and grandchildren. Konstantin says he delights in her delight and he loves knowing that her heart is full. Maggie calls that very kind. Konstantin tells Maggie that he’s going to miss her as his travel VISA is expiring and he’s been denied another extension, so he’s afraid he’s going to have to leave Salem.

Harris guesses that Ava thinks Clyde is still around. Ava reveals that she knows he is. Harris asks what she knows. Ava informs him that Clyde called her earlier and wants her to do another job for him.

Update written by Joseph

Eric calls the landlord at home, who informs him that he and Sloan have been late on rent two months in a row which surprises Eric. Eric notes that things have been hectic with a new baby but Sloan will be home soon and they will get the rent to him. Eric hangs up and guesses Sloan forgot about paying the rent. Eric tells Jude not to worry about it and they will get it all squared away.

Sloan meets Jada at the Brady Pub. Sloan says she was knee deep in research for her case. Jada asks if she found a way to get her out of her marriage. Jada pays Sloan her retainer fee and asks if she found any loopholes. Sloan informs her that unfortunately, the law leans in Everett’s case because of his condition.

At the Spectator, Stephanie tells Leo that the article on Stefan’s arrest is gaining a lot of traction. Leo comments that he knew Stefan had a dark side but didn’t think he was a drug dealer. Leo wonders how Chad is taking the news. Leo hopes the readers also check out his column and remarks that it may be his last. Stephanie encourages that things always look up. Stephanie says she has to go check on another account so she’ll see him later. Stephanie then goes to exit as Everett arrives. Stephanie greets him and asks where he’s been.

Xander and Sarah walk through the town square with Victoria. Xander talks about feeling almost like a free man. Sarah encourages that he will never be locked up again. Xander says he appreciates her support which Sarah says she will always have. EJ walks in to the town square and gets a call from Kristen which he ignores. EJ runs in to Xander and tells him that he has some news about his case, so he might as well hear it from him.

Kristen is at the DiMera Mansion and leaves a message for EJ, complaining about DiMera stock plummeting. Kristen demands EJ prove that he cares about the company and call her back before they lose the family fortune. Kristen hangs up and questions if this day could get any worse. Nicole then storms in and asks what the hell is wrong with her.

Stephanie asks Everett if he’s okay. Everett says he’s good and it’s nothing he wants to get in to right now. Everett asks how the article on Stefan is doing. Stephanie says it’s great and shows him. Everett calls that good news at least. Leo suggests a follow up article but Everett tells him to stay in his lane. Leo remarks that Everett is clearly singing the blues so he will steer clear of him. Stephanie asks Everett to tell her what’s wrong but Everett says not now as he’s trying to work. Jada then arrives and asks if Everett is as stubborn as he is psychotic and demands that he sign the divorce papers.

EJ informs Xander that he believes he belongs behind bars and admits he would’ve relished putting him there but their forensics team have examined the images and confirmed that Xander did not shoot Harris Michaels, acknowledging the difference in pants. EJ reveals he has officially dropped the charges against him and congratulates him as he walks away. Xander can’t believe it and asks Sarah if that really happened. Sarah encourages that Xander made it happen with his determination and wants to celebrate his freedom. Xander jokes about being congratulated by EJ as he kisses Sarah.

Nicole questions Kristen telling Holly that she’s a bad influence on Rachel. Nicole complains that Kristen is picking on a girl who nearly died and now she’s upstairs crying. Kristen calls Holly a drama queen and a drug addict. Nicole argues that she’s not a drug addict. Kristen points out that Nicole had no idea that Holly was doing drugs before. Nicole says she made a mistake while Kristen complains that Holly covered it up and lied about it while Tate got beat up in prison over it. Kristen argues that she has every right to keep her daughter away from Holly. Nicole tells Kristen to come after her if she wants to go after someone so Kristen asks if she wants to fight.

Sloan goes home and thinks back to arguing with Leo about him costing her a fortune. Eric greets her and asks how her day was. Sloan calls it exhausting. Eric says he just put Jude down and thought maybe they could talk. Sloan notes that he sounds serious. Eric reveals it’s about their finances as he came home and found the rent note under their door.

Jada asks Everett again to sign the divorce papers. Stephanie questions them still being married while Leo calls this juicy. Jada explains that Bobby never signed the divorce papers and he still won’t do it now. Leo questions who Bobby is. Jada tells him that it’s Everett, leaving Leo confused.

Nicole asks if Kristen punching down makes her feel powerful. Kristen argues that she just told Nicole’s daughter to stay away from her daughter. Nicole tells Kristen to come to her if she has anything to say to or about Holly. Kristen mocks Holly being a druggie and calls her just as selfish and manipulative as her mother. Nicole asks if she wants to compare daughters to mothers, calling that a dangerous place for her to be. Nicole talks about feeling sorry for Rachel and remarks that she’s bound to be a bad seed just like her mom.

Sloan tells Eric that she feels terrible that the rent must have just slipped her mind. Eric says he figured and points out being late last month too, but he knows she’s had a million things on her mind. Sloan talks about the expenses increasing with formula and diapers. Sloan promises to be more on top of it and says she will send the rent now. Sloan adds that her case load is increasing so it shouldn’t be a problem. Eric adds that at some point, his business will pick up. Eric suggests they make a family budget together. Eric grabs a paper to come up with a list of expenses but Jude wakes up crying so Sloan says she will go take care of that.

Jada tells Everett to just sign the papers as Robert Stein so they can get this over with as they don’t want to be married to each other. Jada argues that it’s just a signature and no one will know or care. Everett responds that he’s sorry but he can’t sign the way she wants him to. Leo asks for clarification on Everett being Bobby, then points out Stephanie being with him so he asks if Stephanie knew him as Bobby. Stephanie tells Leo not to go there. Leo asks how he can’t when his gossip column has been starving for a scoop. Everett also tells him not to go there. Jada questions how long he’s going to torture her with this.

Xander and Sarah go home to eat together. Sarah says they are going to sleep like babies tonight now that this whole nightmare is over but Xander says it’s actually not completely over.

Kristen warns Nicole to keep Rachel out of this because Rachel isn’t a screw up like Holly. Nicole argues that Holly has been nothing but kind while Rachel is an entitled brat. Nicole brings up Kristen’s felonies so Kristen asks if she wants to compare notes as they yell at each other. Kristen brings up Nicole kidnapping Jude while Nicole brings up Kristen stealing Tate as a fetus. Kristen argues that she learned baby stealing from Nicole and goes over her past including breaking up Daniel and Jennifer. Nicole says she actually regrets it and is trying to turn her life around. Kristen tells her to spin her way to Hell where she belongs. Nicole brings up Kristen drugging Eric and having sex with him. Nicole adds that Kristen paraded around town in a mask of her to seduce Brady. Nicole declares that Rachel only exists because Brady had sex with Kristen, thinking she was her. They start to fight until EJ runs in to break it up, screaming at them to stop and questioning what is going on.

Sloan returns from changing Jude’s diaper as Eric shows her a list of expenses that he came up with. Sloan tells him it looks all good. Eric questions what is missing. Sloan claims she isn’t thinking of anything but Eric says something isn’t adding up right. Jude starts crying again so Sloan decides to go feed him.

Everett tells Jada that this isn’t personal. Jada complains that they are still married and she takes that very personally. Jada asks what the big deal is as no one will even care and they can move on with their lives. Leo points out that it would be forgery but Jada argues that he is Robert Stein legally. Jada tells Leo to shut up and stay out of it. Everett repeats that he’s sorry but he can’t sign it right now. Jada then storms out, so Stephanie goes after her.

Sarah questions Xander saying the nightmare is not over. Xander talks about every night in jail, trying to figure it out because he knew he didn’t shoot Harris but the evidence was stacking up against him. Xander thinks he was framed and whoever set him up did a bang up job, but the only question is why him.

EJ separates Kristen and Nicole and questions if this is the example they want to set for their daughters. EJ questions Kristen attacking a teenage girl. Nicole thanks EJ for sticking up for Holly. Kristen asks EJ if he heard the things Nicole was saying about Rachel. EJ argues that the difference is that Nicole said those things to Kristen while Kristen fired her missiles right at Holly’s face. Kristen asks if EJ is kidding by giving Nicole a pass. EJ states that Nicole is his wife and Kristen will show her respect. Kristen calls Nicole a scheming gold digger while Nicole calls Kristen a homicidal maniac. EJ screams that is enough and warns that if Kristen is unable to get along with Nicole, then she will have to find another place to live.

Sloan puts Jude to sleep so Eric asks if she can sit down and go over the expenses now. Sloan says she would but she just noticed Jude is out of diapers. Eric asks if she’s sure as he thought they had one more pack but Sloan says they are all out, so she will be right back and then exits. Eric wonders where all their money can be going.

Leo tells Everett that he can only imagine what this is doing to him. Everett calls the whole thing a nightmare with Stephanie right in the middle of it. Leo talks about no one seeing this coming. Everett states that he’s not the victim but the bad guy in the situation since Jada thinks he’s a two timing bastard and Stephanie is debating whether he’s that or a nutjob. Everett adds that either way, Stephanie has lost trust in him and he hates this. Leo says if he doesn’t remember, he doesn’t remember and encourages him to stop being so hard on himself. Leo insists that Everett is a good guy who is going through an identity crisis. Leo says he can only imagine what it would be like to be two people with two sets of rotten memories. Everett tells Leo that he appreciates his support. Leo says they all need someone to listen to their side of the story. Leo asks if he can write about this in his column and promises to be gentle with the story. Everett asks if he’s out of his mind and tells him to drop it. Leo decides he will leave so that Everett can clear his head. Leo adds that he’s there for him, but he does agree with Jada that he won’t be able to move forward until he puts this behind him, so he has to figure it out. Leo declares that otherwise, he’ll never get Stephanie back and it’s obvious that he’s in love with her. Leo says he knows the feeling as he exits the office.

Stephanie and Jada go to the Pub. Stephanie thanks Jada for telling her about the divorce snafu and trusting her enough to open up about it. Jada knows it can’t be easy for her either. Stephanie admits it’s been pretty shocking. Jada tells her that she’s sorry for biting her head off more than once as she realizes she’s been taking all her anger out on her. Stephanie says she can’t imagine what she went through when her marriage ended and what she’s going through now. Jada says it’s no excuse since Stephanie is a victim here too. Jada asks if Stephanie can forgive her for the awful things she said.

Xander tells Sarah that someone went through a lot of trouble to set him up, starting with the phone call. Xander thinks back to the night he got that call. Xander says someone obviously duplicated his jogging outfit and planted the gun in their apartment. Sarah adds that they put the money in his account. Xander says it has to be someone who knows him with money. Sarah wonders if it was Clyde. Xander calls it possible that he financed it since he does have a vendetta against Harris, but questions why Clyde would pin it on him when he hasn’t had any contact with him in years. Xander thinks it would be odd for Clyde to go to such lengths to set him up. Sarah brings up the Spectator article saying that Stefan was doing Clyde’s bidding through the Bistro, so maybe Stefan hired the hitman. Xander decides he’s going to visit the jail to see if he can see Stefan. Sarah asks if he’s sure that’s a good idea.

Kristen asks EJ who he thinks he is and says he doesn’t own the house, adding that she’s been a DiMera longer than Nicole has. Nicole tells Kristen that it’s a big house and suggests agreeing to keep their kids away from each other. EJ says that’s settled and now he’s going to DiMera Enterprises to show some leadership as the board made it clear Stefan is out as head of DiMera, so he needs to take the reigns. Nicole asks if he can do that and still be district attorney. EJ says he can and the company needs someone with the family name while Tony doesn’t want that responsibility while he’s traveling with Anna. EJ adds that Chad never expressed interest while Johnny is too young and inexperienced. Kristen argues that there’s a DiMera right here which EJ laughs off and says he doesn’t think so.

Xander asks Sarah why it would be a bad idea for him to see Stefan. Sarah says he’s all free and clear now so she thinks it’s a bad idea to poke the bear. Xander feels he has to figure out who did this to him. Sarah says they are in this together. Xander thanks her and decides he’ll see about visiting Stefan tomorrow. Sarah jokes with him about bringing her cheese in bed which Xander promises to do every night as they kiss.

EJ says he’s off and asks if he can trust Kristen and Nicole to be there alone. Nicole decides she will go with EJ and he can drop her off in the town square as she could use some retail therapy and then they can have dinner out. EJ calls that perfect. Nicole says she will go check on Holly and let her know they are heading out. Nicole and EJ exit the room while Kristen grabs her phone and calls Mr. Shin, saying she thinks they need to have a talk.

Jada tells Stephanie that she really let her have it but it was all misguided anger as she’s not to blame for any of this and she believes that she had no idea Bobby was married. Jada hopes that Stephanie will forgive her someday when she’s ready. Stephanie admits the things that Jada said really hurt. Stephanie knows she was coming from a place of pain and wasn’t trying to hurt her, so she forgives her as she knows she was only trying to protect herself. Stephanie says they just process things differently. Jada calls Stephanie the calm and rational one while she’s a total hot head. Stephanie says she’s had her moments too. Jada says she’s been so wrapped up in her own world that she didn’t take time to think about how this was affecting Stephanie. Stephanie admits it’s been rough. Jada asks Stephanie if she’s furious with Everett. Stephanie confirms she is half the time, but the other half she’s thinking about what he must be going through. Jada asks if she believes his story. Stephanie says she doesn’t know but she feels for him, losing chunks of his life and identity while having nobody. Jada points out that he has Stephanie and guesses she still has feelings for him. Stephanie wishes it was that black and white.

Everett remains at the Spectator office and declares there is no escaping Robert Stein. Everett then grabs his phone and calls Marlena but it goes to voicemail. He leaves a message, saying he needs to see her.

Sloan meets Leo in the town square. Leo asks if this was really urgent since he has a pedicure. Sloan complains that he just had one and her baby comes first. Sloan talks about what Jude needs. Leo remarks that she should be on a budget. Sloan complains that she can’t keep hiding Leo’s expenses as her bank account is drained and she’s late on rent. Sloan points out that Leo is legit working now and compliments his article on Paulina. Leo is shocked that she didn’t insult him. Sloan calls him a decent writer and points out that he’s getting more assignments. Leo talks about those assignments costing money too. Sloan encourages him being a talented writer and asks for a little bit of help. Leo says because of his fondness for Jude, he will cut her allowance by 10%. Sloan was thinking 40%. Leo says they’ll meet in the middle at 25% only because she complimented his writing. Sloan hugs Leo and says he has no idea what this means to her.

Eric continues going over expenses and says he doesn’t get it as something’s not right here. Eric guesses that Sloan must have some big expenses that she’s not sharing with him. Eric declares that he’s going to get to the bottom of this.

Days of Our Lives Transcript


Days of Our Lives logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Uh, I’m sorry, Amir. This must be an oversight.

Two, two months in a row?

Yeah, things have been a little hectic, you know, having a new baby and all.

Okay, hey, listen, my wife, she’s, she’s gonna be home any minute, and um, we’ll just get this cleared up and get it to you today, okay? Okay, thanks.

They must have forgotten all about paying the rent.

Hey, don’t you worry about it, little guy. Mommy’s got a lot on her mind.

I mean, look at your face. Mommy just takes one look at you and all the things on her mind go right out the window. But don’t you worry, we’ll get this all squared away. Hey, sorry I’m late. I was knee deep in research about your case. And? Did you find a way to get me out of this nightmare marriage? Before we get started, do you mind if we just take care of my retainer fee first?

Oh, sure. Sorry, I completely slipped my mind.

There. Sent. Okay, thank you. So, did you find anything? Anything that’ll help push through this divorce? Like a loophole or something? Unfortunately, it’s just the opposite. The law is in favor of Bobby’s case. Well, when a party suffers from a mental illness like a brain injury or some other mentally debilitating condition, the law states that they lack the cognitive ability to enter into a contract.

I mean even If they do sign a contract in that condition, it’s avoidable.

The article on Stefan’s arrest is gaining a lot of traction. I even posted it to four different social media platforms to get even more traffic. Who’d have thunk it? I knew Stefan DiMera had a dark side, but drug dealer was not on my bingo card. I know, right? I wonder how Chadwick is dealing with the news that his brother from another mother is a pill pushing lowbrow headed to the Who’s Go.

Come on, Leo. What? I just hope after our readers have done rubbernecking at Stefan’s story, they detour over to my Lady Whistleblower column. It may be my last. Hey, things will look up, Leo, okay? They always do. Yeah. Hey, I gotta go check on another account, so I’ll see you later. Okay, see ya. Hey, where have you been?

I feel like I’m walking on a cloud. With two girls, almost like a free man. You are never going to be locked up again. Ever. God, I love your optimism. And you’re undying support. And you will always have been.

D. A. DiMera. Fancy meeting you here. Likewise. Actually, I have some news about your case, and you might as well hear it from me.

Dammit, E. J., stop ignoring me. Have you seen the price of DiMera stock? It’s plummeting by the second. Now you say that you care about this company. Well, prove it. Call me back, now. Before we lose our family fortune. Ugh. Oh, could this take it any worse? What the hell is wrong with you?

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. You

okay? I’m good. Really? Because you, you look kind of razzled. Yeah, well, uh, it’s nothing I want to get into right now. How is the article on Stefan doing? Great. Take a look. Oh. That’s good news, at least. Hey, Everett. Lightbulb moment. I was thinking I could do a follow up human interest story about a family who was immediately impacted by the drugs that Stefan was trafficking through the bistro.

You know what, Leo? Until I, um, say it, why don’t you stay in your lane? Ah! Snark you much? Sorry, Leo. Well, since you are clearly singing the blues today, I will steer clear. Tell me what’s wrong, Everett, please. Not now. I’m trying to work, you know?

Are you as stubborn as you are psychotic? Sign the divorce papers, damn it!

As much as I believe. You belong behind bars and, uh, Anne, make no mistake, I would have relished putting you there. Our forensic team has examined the images of the perpetrator and have confirmed that you did not shoot Detective Michaels. They saw the difference in the tracksuit pants, right? There was a slight difference, but a difference nonetheless.

I’ve just come from my office where I have officially dropped the charges against you. Congratulations. Oh my god. Did that just happen? You made it happen. You did. You were determined and tenacious and you found proof. And I am so, I’m so proud of you. I couldn’t have done it without you. Did you hear that, little angel?

Your daddy’s a free man. We’re gonna celebrate. Look, I know that my freedom is the big news here, but uh, I’d just like to point out that I, Xander Cook was just congratulated by that frig E. J. Zemera.

You actually told Holly that she’s a bad influence on Rachel? Yep, I did. Oh, the audacity. I mean, what are you, picking on a teenage girl that almost died? She’s upstairs in her room crying right now. Oh, boo hoo, poor Holly. She’s such a drama queen. Drama queen? Yes. That is rich coming from you. Oh God, let’s face it, Nicole.

No mother wants her child hanging out with a drug addict. She’s not a drug addict. Okay, well, how would you know? You had no idea she was doing drugs before? Well, she’s a teenager, Kristen. Okay, she made a mistake. Okay, she made a mistake, yeah. And instead of taking responsibility for it, she covered it up and lied about it.

Blamed Rachel’s big brother, Tate, for it all. And, and now he has no freedom. He got beaten up in prison. Okay, well, she was unconscious when all that happened, okay? Spare me the fine print. Your daughter was doing drugs behind your back. And when I called her on it, a little brat went tattling to mommy. I have every right to keep my daughter away from that little liar.

Okay, you just stop yourself right now. Look, if you want to go after someone, you come after me, alright? Alright. You wanna fight? You wanna fight? No, I do. Okay, let’s do it. Come on. Let’s go.

Very impressed to find out that you have a 30, 000 limit. My God, you can’t keep doing this. It’s costing me a fortune as it is just to put you up with this sailor man. Oh, my suite by the way, major upgrade from that dingy little room I used to share with Gweny. Lovely view, very comfy king size bed. Oh my God, when is it going to end?

Honey, it ends whenever you’re ready to give up your baby. To give that precious little boy back to his real mother. Hey. Hey. I thought I heard you. How was your day? Exhausting. Yeah, well, I, uh, just got you down. And I thought maybe you and I could talk. Oh, sounds serious. It is. It’s um, it’s about our finances.

I came home from our breakfast and I found this under our door.

Would you please? Just sign the damn divorce papers. You two are still married? Jada and Everett. Hashtag Jefferet. Married. Juicy. Apparently, the divorce decree was never officially finalized. Yeah, because Bobby never signed the papers and he won’t do it now. Wait, who is Bobby? He is. Jada and Bobby? Hashtag jobby.

To make you feel powerful, Kristen, punching down. Punching down? Yeah. All I did was tell your daughter to stay away from mine. That is it. Well, from now on, if you have anything to say to Holly or about Holly, you come to me first. You got it? Oh, yeah. Well, I think I pretty much covered it. Oh, you have? Oh, and hey, guess what?

God, it can’t be easy having a druggie for a daughter. Especially one who pretends she’s Snow White singing to animated birds while everyone kisses her feet. The facade is crumbling, honey. Lo and behold, Holly is just as selfish and manipulative as her mother. Oh. Oh, we’re going there, are we? Yeah, we will go there.

Yeah. Comparing daughters to mothers? It’s a very dangerous place for you to be, Kristen. I feel really, really bad for Rachel. Because she has an evil serpent for a mother. Stinking her fangs into innocent people. Spreading her poison all over town. And you know what it looks to me? Huh? That Rachel is bound to be a bad seed.

Just like her mummy. Wow.

I feel terrible. I, I must have just slipped my mind. I figured. You know, I’ve never even been late on rent before, so this Actually, you were late last month too. But I know you’ve had a million things on your mind. Yeah, I really have. But it’s not just that, it’s, you know, the, the expenses are increasing.

It’s the formula, the diapers. No, electricity and gas. But look, I promise you, I’m going to be more on top of it. Look, right now, I am going to send the landlord the rent. And with my caseloads increasing, this shouldn’t be a problem. And at some point, my business will pick up. Yes. You know what? But this is what we should do.

We should make a plan. A family budget. Great. I can do that. I can make a, a spreadsheet at work tomorrow. No, no, no. Actually, you know what? We can, uh, kind of do this together, you know? Like, uh, look. It’s not that hard. We can kind of, uh, put a list of all our family expenses together. Right? So, uh, Here, I’ll give you that.

Oh, you know what? It’s okay. I’ll take care of it. Just hold that thought. You

said you would sign the papers. Yes. As myself. You are yourself. Listen, just, just sign Robert Stein. Okay? So we can just get this over with. You don’t want to be married to me. And I don’t want to be married to you. It’s just a signature. No one will even know or care.

I’m sorry. I can’t. I can’t. I can’t sign those. Not the way that you want me to. Oh my god. Uh, I’m sorry, just so that I’m clear. Everett is Bobby. Bobby is Everett. And wait, you two were an item when you were in Seattle. Did you know him as Bobby? Don’t go there, Leo. How can I not go there? Lady Whistleblower has been starving for scoop, and now here comes a triple fudge sundae served up with sprinkles.

Leo! Huh? Just don’t go there, okay? Just So what’s it gonna be, Bobby? I mean really, how long are you going to be torturing me with this?

This may be the best cheeseburger I’ve ever eaten in my entire life. And that’s because everything tastes better with a side of freedom. So true. Incredible. Although, what’s with your obsession with cheese? It’s like you’re a little mouse who can’t get enough. You’re only saying that because I asked you to bring me string cheese in bed one time.

Once. More like you woke me up and demanded that I bring you string cheese at midnight three different times. Well, I was breastfeeding Victoria. I couldn’t exactly get up and go get cheese. And nobody’s waking up tonight. We’re gonna sleep like babies now that this whole nightmare is over. Actually, it’s not completely over.

You keep my daughter out of this. Unlike Holly, Rachel is not a screw up. You know, her only mistake is that she looked up to someone who is unworthy of her admiration. Unworthy of her admiration? What are you talking about? Holly has been nothing but kind and loving to Rachel, and Rachel is nothing but an entitled little brat.

Rachel is not a brat. Yes, she is, and she needs to come with a warning label, just like her mother. Felony after felony. Okay, you know what? I do. Let’s do it. You kidnapped Daniel, you blackmailed Sammy, you stole Teresa and Brady’s fetus and inserted it in yourself. That’s crazy, that’s disgusting, yes it is.

You know who I left the baby stealing from? You, Nicole, you. Yes, you stole EJ and Sammy’s baby, you lied to Daniel about how your baby died, and you blamed it all on Jennifer. And you broke their relationship up. Yeah, but you wanna know the difference between you and me? What? I actually regret it. Oh, ho, ho, ho.

I am trying to turn my life around. Oh, well, keep on turning, sweetheart, and maybe you’ll spin your way all the way down to hell where you belong. Oh, my God. You know, I haven’t told you the worst part about you. Oh, goody. What you did to Eric. Okay, I can’t wait to hear this. Oh, I bet. You drugged him. And you had sex with him, and there’s a word for that, and I can’t even say it because you totally disgust me.

Oh, and then you go parading around town wearing a mask, impersonating me so you could seduce Brady. Bad news for you. The only reason Rachel exists is because Brady had sex with you, thinking it was me. Okay, don’t you do this to me! Stop it! Stop it! Both of you! Stop it! Stop it! You’re such a liar! You’re a liar!

Stop it! Both of you! Stop it! What is going on here? Stop it!

I’m guessing he just needed a diaper change. All sparkly clean now. It’s been a big time with me. Here’s the spreadsheet so far. Here, take a look. Okay, rand electric, gas, food, personal stuff, hair, manicure, clothes. Yeah. That look about right? Yeah, looks, looks all good. Yeah, but what’s missing? I can’t really think of anything off the top of my head.

Well, something’s not adding up right. Okay. Oh, uh oh. I’m guessing he’s getting hungry. I’m gonna go feed him.

This isn’t personal, Jada. We are still married. I take that very personally. Just, what’s the big deal? Okay, just sign it Robert Stein. It’s just a technicality. No one will even care. You can move on with your life and I can move on with mine, okay? Well, wouldn’t that be forgery detective signing somebody else’s name?

No, because he is Robert Stein, legally. Are you? Leo, shut up and just stay out of this. I’m sorry, I I can’t sign it. Not right now. Damn you. Jada, wait.

What do you mean it’s not over yet? Night after night, in that jail cell, I kept trying to figure it out. I mean, I knew I hadn’t shot Harris. But the evidence just kept stacking up against me, as well you know. Well, when you got arrested, you thought that somebody had framed you. Right, and I still do, now more than ever.

I mean, whoever set me up, they did a bang up job, didn’t they? Only question is, Why me?

Stop. Stop. Is this the example you both want to set for your daughters? My God. What if I hadn’t walked in when I did? And honestly, Kristin, a grown woman attacking a teenage girl. Thank you for standing up for Holly. Oh, please. Did you hear what your precious wife was saying about your niece? It was obscene.

There’s a big difference here, Kristen. She said those things to you, whereas you fired your missiles right at Holly’s face. Are you kidding me? You kidding me? So she gets a pass because she didn’t tear Rachel to shreds behind her back? Nicole is my wife. And you will show her some damn respect. She’s a scheming gold digger.

And always has been. And you’re not a homicidal maniac! Enough! Enough! Kristen, let me make this very clear. If you are unable to get along with my wife, you will find another place to live.

Ten whole ounces. You wolf that down. Hopefully that can last him out for a little while. Good. Can you sit down and go through this with me now? Um, yeah, of course I can. Definitely. But I just noticed that Jude’s completely out of diapers. So I’m gonna run and go get some. Are you sure? Because I thought we had another package.

Nope. All out. I’m going to be right back. And, grab some diapers. Love you. Damn, where can all my money be going?

I don’t even have a horse in this race, and I am breathless. I can only imagine what this is doing to you. This whole thing

is a nightmare. It’s a nightmare, with Stephanie, right in the middle of it. Poor thing. The two of you, flittering around town like a pair of lovebirds, then all of a sudden, wham! You careen into a glass window, feathers everywhere, no one saw it coming. Except, I’m not the victim. No matter how you try to spin this, I am the bad guy in this situation.

I mean, Jada thinks I’m a two timing bastard, Stephanie is debating whether I’m a two timing bastard, or a nutjob, I mean, either way. She’s lost trust in me. I hate this. I hate myself. Everett Everett. Come on, man. If you don’t remember you don’t remember stopping so hard on yourself. Look, you are a good guy.

Who’s going through an identity crisis. Hey, sometimes I feel like I need a lobotomy, and I am just one person with one name and one set of rotten memories. I can only imagine what it would be like to be two people with two sets of rotten memories.

Appreciate the support, Leo.

We all need somebody to listen to our side of the story, right?

Speaking of stories, I mean this really delicious one just fell into my lap and if Lady Whistleblower could write about it, I, well I promise, I promise I will be, I will be very, very gentle with the story and respectful and Are you out of your mind? What? Are you out of your mind? No. Drop it, Leo. I am. I’m sorry.

Okay, but we Okay, but Okay, I’m gonna get out of here so you can clear your heads. I’m sorry. Bobrit, I want you to know I am here for you. But I have to say, I do agree with Jada. You are not going to be able to move forward until you put this behind you. Get it figured out. Otherwise, you’re never going to get Stephanie back.

And it is obvious you are head over heels in love with her. Heartbroken. I have feathers everywhere.

I know the feeling.

Thank you for filling me in on the divorce snafu. Trusting me enough to open up about it. Yeah, well, I know this can’t be easy for you either. I mean my goodness, it’s just, when you thought that things couldn’t get more jaw dropping, you find out that the guy you’re involved with is still married. To me.

Yeah. Yeah, it’s been pretty shocking.

Hey. Listen. I’m really sorry that I bit your head off. More than once. I realize that I’ve been really just taking all my anger out on you. Well, I can’t imagine. What you went through when your marriage ended and what you’re going through now. Yeah, but still, it’s, it’s no excuse, Stephanie. You are a victim here too.

So what do you say? Do you think maybe you can forgive me for the awful things that I said? The thing is, someone went to a lot of trouble to set me up, right? And they did it oh so cleverly. Starting with that phone call. Hello?

Xander Cook. Yeah, who’s this? I have a job for you. What kind of job? I have someone who must be eliminated.

And then, obviously, someone duplicated my jogging outfit. And Planted that gun in our apartment. And they put the money in your bank account. That’s an awfully big expense, right? Whoever it was, they, they wanted to take me down big time. Damn it, I just, there’s gotta be someone who knows me, someone with money.

Clyde? It’s possible. I mean, obviously there’s no love lost between him and me. And he had motive for offing Harris, yeah. He could’ve financed this, but, but why pin it on me? I mean, I haven’t had any contact with that bastard in years. It seems odd that he’d go to such lengths to Set me up.

The Spectator article said that Stefan was doing Clyde’s bidding through the Bistro. So maybe Stefan hired the hitman. Maybe he knows something. I’m gonna visit the jail. See if I can get in to see Stefan. You sure that’s a good idea?

Who do you think you are? You don’t own this house. And I’ve been a mayor longer than you have.

Look, Kristen. Mm hmm. This is a big house. Why don’t we just agree to keep our kids away from each other? Alright? Fine. Good. That settles that. Now, I’m leaving. I need to head to DiMera. Show some leadership. The board has made it clear, Stefan is out as head of DiMera, and I need to take the reins. Can you do that?

Can you step back in and still be DA? I could. The board does need an interim CEO immediately. Someone with a family name. Ugh. I’m told he wants to travel the world with Anna, doesn’t want that kind of responsibility at this stage in his life. Chad’s never expressed interest and Johnny is just far too young and inexperienced.

Hello. There’s a DiMera standing right here. Oh, you’re serious? Oh, my darling sister. No, no, no. I don’t think so.

Why would it be a bad idea for me to see Stefan? Oops. Because you’re all free and clear now. I mean, don’t you think it’s a bad idea to go digging around? It’s like poking the bear. I think I have to. I mean, I have to figure out who did this to me, Sarah. No.

We have to. Because we’re in this together. Thank you. I mean some. And tomorrow I’ll see about getting into the jail to visit Stefan. As long as you promise me one thing. Anything. When this is all over, I want you to bring me cheese and bed as much as I want without complaining. Every. Single. Night.

Okay, I’m off. Can I trust the two of you to be here alone? Actually, why don’t I go with you? And you can drop me off at the town square. Because after all the fun I’ve had today, I could use some retail therapy, and then maybe we can have dinner out. Hmm. Perfect. I’ll meet you in the car. Actually, I’m gonna go check on Holly and let her know we’re heading out.

Sounds good. Okay. Bye. Goodbye to you too, little brother.

Yes, Mr. Shen. This is Kristen DiMera. I think you and I need to have a talk. I really let you have it. And like I said, it was all misguided anger, Stephanie. You’re not to blame for any of this. And I believe you when you said that you had no idea that Bobby was married. So I really hope that you’ll forgive me.

If not now, someday, when you’re ready. I’m not gonna lie, those things you said, it really hurt. I know you were coming from a place of pain. You weren’t trying to hurt me. I forgive you. Of course. I know you were only trying to protect yourself. We just process things differently. Yeah. You’re the calm and rational one, and I blow my top.

Total hothead. Oh, believe me, I’ve, I’ve had my moments. Not that I would know. I’ve been, I’ve been so wrapped up in my own world and all the things happening that’s messing it up that I didn’t even take time to think about how this was affecting you.

Yeah, it’s been rough.

I’m sure. So, tell me the truth. Aren’t you furious with him? Yes, I am.

Half the time. The other half I keep thinking about what he must be going through. So you believe his story? I don’t know. But I do feel for him. You know, losing chunks of your life, your identity, it must be terrifying. And he has nobody. Except you.

You still have feelings for him, don’t you?

If only it were so black and white.

There’s no escaping you. Is there, Robert Stein?


Doctor Evans. This is Everett Lynch. I need to see you.

Uh, is this really that urgent? I was about to get a pedicure when you beckoned. Oh, you had a pedicure just last week. I know, I paid for it. Yes, but if I wait too long, my feet get hard and crusty, and I need them to be soft and smooth like a baby’s bottom. My baby comes first, pal. Look, just cut me a little break, okay?

June needs diapers, wipes, food. You should probably be on a budget. I can’t. Eric wants to, but I can’t keep hiding your crazy self indulgent expenses. Meanwhile, I have drained my bank account paying rent, which was late for the second time. Look, you’re working now. You’re doing legit reporting. I saw that piece on Mayor Price.

What did you think? It was good, actually. Wow, did you just not insult me? I’m shocked. I did just not insult you. You’re actually, you’re a decent writer. And look, you’re paid by the article, right? And they’re giving you more assignments now, I’ve noticed. Well, those assignments cost money, too. See, I had to finagle my way into Mayor Price’s welcome home party by posing as a flower delivery person.

And you paid for the flowers? Well, no. Chad did. But at that faboo shindig, I managed to spill champagne all over my shoes. I ruined them. And girl, new Ferragamos do not come cheap. Come on, Leo. No, really, you are such a talented writer. And your features, I mean, they are just taking off. Lady Whistleblower is practically a household name now.

Come on, please, I’m just asking. I’m really talking to you, though. Please. Well, I do offer a unique perspective, and that does make my career outlook rosy.

And because of my fondness for your son, And because I want his diapers to be ultra absorbent so that his booty can be smooth and soft like my pedicured feet. I will cut your allowance by ten percent. I was thinking forty. Fifteen. Thirty five.

I’m feeling generous, but only because you complimented my writing. Why don’t we meet in the middle and say twenty five percent? Steel. No. What? You have no idea what this means to me. Okay.

I don’t get this. Something is not right here. Sloane must have some big expenses she’s not sharing with me. I’m gonna get to the bottom of this.

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Abe and Paulina have breakfast at the Brady Pub. Paulina complains about everything being on her special diet while she’d rather have a bear claw. Abe encourages that she will be able to have one very soon. Paulina says she doesn’t mean to complain as she is very grateful that the treatment exists but she’s dreading the treatment because she hates being away from Abe for even a minute.

Chanel runs in to Johnny in the town square. Johnny reveals the key to the Horton Cabin and announces they are starting their mini honeymoon today which surprises her. Chanel says there’s one problem that she has to work. Johnny guesses it will just have to wait then. Chanel thanks him for understanding as they kiss. Chanel then heads to the Bakery to work.

Kristen walks through the town square, reading the news on her phone and says she can’t believe that Stefan confessed to running illegal drugs through the Bistro and that he’s now behind bars.

At the DiMera Mansion, EJ is on the phone, saying the Spectator did not get the exclusive because it’s run by a DiMera and that his office will be releasing a statement today. EJ hangs up as Holly enters the room. EJ knows she’s upset about being punished but says she chose to do drugs and lied to them about it. Holly asks if he’s never lied. EJ says everyone makes mistakes but this needs to be a lesson learned. Holly complains about her and Tate not being able to see each other anymore. EJ says that was Tate’s parents decision and he can’t blame them. EJ knows Holly wants to be with Tate now, but thinks in time that she will see this is for the best. Holly thinks EJ blew everything out of proportion right from the beginning and declares that this is all EJ’s fault.

Tripp and Wendy go to the park. Wendy asks about his first day back to work. Tripp says it felt good to get back to normal and asks if she’s decided when she’s going back. Wendy says she’s not sure as Rafe left it up to her. Tripp feels that’s good. Wendy asks what they are doing out here and worries about a storm coming soon. Tripp informs her that they are going to work up a sweat. Tripp then opens his bag and presents her with boxing gloves and tells Wendy that she’s going to punch him.

Ava gets a phone call from an unknown number. Ava answers and it’s Clyde, calling from the park. Clyde says hello and bets that she thought she was rid of him. Ava asks what he wants. Clyde wants her to listen up. Ava says that Clyde almost killed her son and his girlfriend, so unless he called to tell her where he is, so that she can come slit his throat and watch him bleed, she has nothing to say. Clyde questions her hostility and remarks that he’s heard Tripp is just fun. Clyde warns her to listen to what he has to say unless she wants him to disavow Stefan’s confession to the police. Clyde informs Ava that he just finished reading this morning’s news about Stefan being arrested and that he’s awaiting arraignment while his ex-business partner, Ava, declined comment. Clyde questions her being called his ex-partner and says he doesn’t think so because he has one more little job that he needs Ava to do for him. Ava flashes back to when Clyde first asked her to run his new drug empire. Ava tells Clyde that the Bistro closed because of everything that went down. Clyde instructs her to force her way back in. Clyde doesn’t know or care how she and Harris got Stefan to take the fall, but they both know she is far from innocent on this. Clyde warns that if Ava wants to keep flying under the radar, she will do what he tells her.

Wendy questions punching Tripp as he instructs her to put the gloves on and explains that physical activity is good for working off nerves and stress. Tripp says after what they went through, it’s not surprise that they have PTSD so he thinks it might be good to work their feelings out in a physical way that’s perfectly safe. Wendy says she’s never tried boxing before. Tripp says he hasn’t either but always wanted to try. Wendy was thinking more like jogging but agrees to give boxing a try.

Chanel returns to Johnny in the town square and says her staff was wondering why she showed up when she was supposed to be on her mini honeymoon. Johnny admits he may have talked to them and they agreed to cover. Chanel says it was sweet, generous, and she really wants to go but brings Paulina starting her treatment. Johnny says that’s why he scheduled this now because Paulina is going to have to be in isolation, so she won’t be able to be with her for the next few days due to being radioactive. Chanel acknowledges that’s true. Johnny adds that the Horton Cabin is fairly close if she had to come back but assures that everything will be fine. Chanel admits she can’t say no to that. Johnny promises it will be the best time ever as they kiss.

EJ walks through the town square, on the phone with Mr. Shin, saying he has everything under control as he walks past Kristen. EJ promises Mr. Shin that he will handle it as he hangs up. Kristen complains about finding out their brother is in jail from the Spectator. Kristen questions nobody telling her. EJ tells her to get a grip. Kristen argues that Stefan was running the company, so she questions where the hell that leaves DiMera Enterprises. EJ assures that there’s nothing to worry about and he has to run. EJ walks off as Kristen shouts about the family business going under. EJ runs in to Johnny, who informs him that he and Chanel are going out of town to the Horton Cabin for a mini honeymoon. EJ tells him that’s great and long overdue but says he’s in a rush. Johnny stops him and says he also wanted to know about Stefan being in jail. EJ questions if he even cares. Johnny insists that he does since Stefan is his uncle. EJ points out that Stefan was supplying the drugs that nearly got Holly killed and assures that everything is under control. EJ tells Johnny not to worry and to go enjoy his honeymoon as they both deserve some time off. EJ then hurries off.

Wendy worries about hurting Tripp with a punch but Tripp assures her that she did good and they joke about it. Wendy mentions being a brown belt in taekwondo but says she’s never punched someone. Wendy takes off her gloves and tells Tripp it’s his turn but Tripp decides jogging doesn’t sound like a bad idea, so Wendy says she’ll race him.

Ava tells Clyde that she doesn’t care about flying under the radar so he can go ahead and tell someone that she was just as involved as Stefan. Ava says she’d rather park her ass in jail than do anything for Clyde again. Ava declares that she’s hanging up and tells him not to call back. Clyde asks what would Harris say if he knew how he got out of prison. Clyde guesses that got her attention and says he’s only asking for one small favor. Ava refuses to launder his money. Clyde says this job is easy. Clyde reveals that Gil hid a little black book at the Bistro and inside that book is all the information on his suppliers and dealers. Clyde says there is no digital trail on him as everything is in that book. Clyde declares that Ava is to get him that book and it is not to be placed in anyone else’s hands. Clyde points out that he’s not asking Ava to kill anybody or kidnap anybody or even betray her friends. Clyde says that book is the only trail back to him, so if she gets it to him, he will pick up and move his operations elsewhere so she’ll never have to hear from him again. Ava then tells Clyde that this is the last thing she will ever do for him and then she’s out.

Abe and Paulina talk about her upcoming treatment. Chanel arrives and says she brought some treats that are made to be on her approved foods list which excites Paulina. Chanel says she has to go but will have her phone on if they need her to come back as she reveals that she and Johnny are going to the Horton Cabin for a mini honeymoon. Paulina calls that wonderful and insists on them going.

Holly sits at home and thinks back to being with Tate. Johnny comes in and greets her, then asks what’s wrong. Holly complains that she has no life. Johnny has no idea what she’s talking about. Holly informs him that she and Tate are no longer allowed to see each other which Johnny says sucks. Holly adds that she’s not in love with Tate in case anyone tells him that, but she does really like him. Holly says it doesn’t matter because Nicole and EJ decided they are toxic for each other. Holly remarks that she thinks EJ and Nicole are a total mismatch. Johnny says he’s sorry that she and Tate can’t hang out. Holly blames herself for making such a mess out of everything. Johnny says they all mess up and she’s paying the consequences, but soon it will just be a bad memory. Johnny mentions that he and Chanel are getting away for the weekend, so he has to go pack. Holly says she’s really happy for them and hopes she finds that one day. Johnny tells her not to rush as she has loads of time. Johnny says when he gets back, if she still wants to talk, there will be no judgment. Johnny heads upstairs and then Rachel comes in and greets Holly. Rachel suggests they go paint their nails which Holly agrees to.

Wendy and Tripp return home as they finish their jogging. Wendy pulls out her phone and sees the Spectator article about Stefan being in jail after confessing to running drugs out of the Bistro. Tripp asks if it says anything about his mom. Wendy says just that Stefan’s ex-business partner declined to comment. Ava then comes in and greets them, asking if they are okay. Tripp responds that he’s fine but she has some explaining to do as he shows her the article. Tripp asks Ava what’s going on and why Stefan would do that. Ava claims not to know. Tripp thought they were both forced in to this shady stuff and threatened by Clyde. Ava guesses that Stefan felt so guilty about what happened to them. Tripp feels that doesn’t sound like Stefan but says who cares since it’s great news and Ava can finally put all of this behind her. Ava declares that she’s going to make a fresh start and she has started by quitting the Bistro since it’s too much bad luck and bad memories. Ava adds that her fresh start includes finding a new place to live.

Rachel and Holly paint their nails. Holly asks Rachel about school. Johnny and Chanel come in. Johnny announces they are taking off for their honeymoon. Holly tells them to have a great time. Johnny and Chanel then exit together.

Abe tells Paulina that he’s going to miss her. Paulina says she’s going to this procedure, knowing he will be at home waiting for her. Paulina says it comforts her knowing that he remembers their history and loves her as Abe hugs her.

Tripp questions Ava moving out. Ava jokes that newlyweds need their space. Wendy says they aren’t exactly but Ava says she heard they exchanged vows which Tripp and Wendy flash back to. Ava asks if they are going to make it official. Tripp says maybe, but for now their vows are on the backburner. Wendy agrees that they are just happy being together. Ava feels they still need their space. Tripp says she doesn’t have to do this. Ava argues that she nearly got them killed. Ava says they have been too generous and let her stay way too long. Ava thinks moving out on her own will be best for everyone.

Abe brings Paulina to the hospital where she prepares for her treatment. Abe encourages that it’s only for a few days. Tripp enters and greets them. Paulina says it’s good to see him. Abe adds that they are so relieved that Tripp and Wendy were rescued. Tripp thanks him. Paulina calls it a horrifying ordeal. Tripp says it was but they are okay now and feeling very lucky. Tripp mentions hearing they had an ordeal as well but with a really happy ending. Abe says they are blessed. Tripp tells Paulina that they will get started and explains that she will be taken to a special room to take the radioactive pill. Paulina asks if she and Abe can have a minute before she goes. Tripp agrees to send a nurse for her in ten minutes and exits the room. Abe then hugs Paulina.

Johnny and Chanel arrive on Smith Island as Johnny carries her in to the cabin. They talk about the place being private and cozy. Johnny jokes that they can be as loud as they want, unlike at the DiMera Mansion. Chanel wonders when anyone was last there. Johnny guesses it’s been awhile and decides he will get some firewood for them as he then exits.

Rachel tells Holly that she doesn’t like boys and is never getting married. They talk until Kristen walks in and orders Rachel to go upstairs, so she exits. Kristen questions what the hell Holly is doing. Holly responds that they were just hanging out. Kristen says not anymore and tells Holly to stay away from her daughter. Holly argues that they were just doing manicures like they used to. Kristen argues that Holly used to not do drugs back then. Holly says she’s not doing drugs now. Kristen questions if she’s lying now like she was before when she let Tate take the fall. Kristen complains that Tate is like a son to her and he’s also Rachel’s half-brother.

Update written by Joseph

At the Brady Pub, Steve works on his laptop. John arrives and asks if he got anything. Steve gives him bad news that he’s done several deep searches and nothing has come up yet, so where ever Clyde has gone is definitely off the grid. Steve still can’t believe Clyde got away and says he should’ve known that Ava would double cross them. John says he won’t make excuses for Ava but she obviously wasn’t thinking straight since she was worried about her son’s life. Steve argues that Ava going rogue led to Clyde and Goldman getting away while Tripp and Wendy could have been killed anyway. John questions how they know that Ava doesn’t know more than she’s letting on.

Harris gets up and joins Ava in the kitchen at her apartment. Harris comments on her letting him sleep in and they kiss. Harris asks how she’s feeling after quitting her job at the Bistro. Ava responds that she feels free for the first time she can remember and like her life belongs to her again. Harris calls that a great way to start the day as they continue kissing.

Konstantin joins Maggie in the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion and asks if she’s okay. Maggie says she’s been reconciling in her mind with the many sides of Victor. Konstantin says they all have their past but what’s important is the present. Maggie calls him a remarkable man. Konstantin responds that he’s inspired by her.

Alex goes to the Titan office and finds Theresa. Alex tells her that her performance at their meeting was very impressive and that it’s good to have her back. Theresa admits it’s great to be back in the office and seeing sales go up. Brady arrives and jokes about it being true that Theresa is back in the office. Brady tells Theresa that he was going to call her as he was wondering if he could talk to her for a minute about Tate and Holly. Theresa questions what Holly did to their son now.

Harris and Ava have breakfast together. Harris comments that she made him a believer in vegan bacon. Harris gets a message on his phone that the audit has been wrapped up at the Bistro, the books are clean, and there’s nothing linking Ava to anything illegal at all. Ava is relieved and acknowledges Stefan taking responsibility. Harris points out that it was either that or go down for attempted murder of a cop. Ava still can’t believe Stefan took the fall. Harris assures that he did and that means it’s over but he’s not sure that she really believes it. Ava says she wants to, but feels too many people know she was involved and that it wasn’t Stefan working alone. Harris encourages that no one will say anything and that Clyde won’t care who takes the fall. Harris insists that those who know, Tripp, Wendy, Steve, and John all want to protect her. Harris declares that Clyde can’t hurt Ava now, so she’s free to start her life.

John asks Steve if he thinks Ava knows something she isn’t telling them. Steve says it’s hard to say but he knows she wants Clyde to pay for what he did to Tripp. John points out that it is Ava. Steve admits that as soon as you think you can trust Ava, you can be quickly reminded of being a gullible fool. John decides they should talk to Ava again before Clyde hurts anyone else while on the run. Steve says they wouldn’t be able to live with that. Kayla comes over and questions what they wouldn’t be able to live with.

Brady informs Theresa about Tate going to see Holly even after they told him not to. Theresa is shocked that Tate lied. Brady adds that EJ and Nicole were there, so he told them that they have to keep Holly away from Tate. Theresa says they obviously see that Holly and Tate are totally toxic for each other. Theresa doesn’t understand why Tate wants to see Holly after all she’s done to him. Brady calls it teen infatuation but thinks as long as the adults are aligned, things will settle down as they are kept separate and it will all be good. Theresa hugs Brady and thanks him so much for handling this because she would’ve lost it if she was there. Brady admits he almost lost it but they have to do what’s best for their son as Alex watches on from the corner.

Maggie tells Konstantin that she’s still processing his relationship with Victor, questioning how they developed a friendship over the years. Konstantin claims that they were mortal enemies but even in their darkest moments, they felt like kindred spirits. Maggie remarks that she didn’t think she would ever fall in love again when she lost Mickey, but she did and Victor was her second chapter. Maggie says she couldn’t have been more surprised as Victor had a big heart and deep devotion for his family. Maggie declares that’s the Victor she knew and loved. Konstantin says that’s the Victor they should both remember.

Steve tells Kayla that he’s surprised as he thought she was going to work. Kayla thought she’d pick up some food on her way and questions what Steve can’t live with. Steve responds that he can’t live with the fact that Clyde Weston got away or that he’s still out there. John tells Steve that they got to get a move on for their client meeting, so Steve tells Kayla they will talk later. Steve tells Kayla that he loves her and then exits with John.

Maggie tells Konstantin that he is very kind. Konstantin says she brings out the best in him, as she did with Victor. Maggie says she and Victor needed and adored each other, but she’s still struggling with what she knows about Victor’s past. Maggie adds that seeing Konstantin find peace has given her hope. Konstantin says hope holds them together and shines light on what is to come. Julie walks in and screams that the place is turning in to a madhouse, then asks if she’s interrupting.

Theresa tells Brady that she was a handful as a teenager but not like Tate and Holly. They agree they have to be united. Theresa prays that EJ and Nicole are on the same page. Theresa realizes she has to get to a meeting. Alex tells Theresa that he will be cooking dinner for when she gets home. Brady questions if he missed something. Alex then informs Brady that Theresa moved back in with him.

Harris asks about what Ava is going to do next. Ava talks about dreaming of being a fashion designer as a kid but that wasn’t in the cards with her family. Ava says cooking is now her passion so Harris suggests culinary school could be her next move. Harris says that whatever she chooses, he will be there and cheering her on as he believes in her. Ava says that means more than he knows. They are then interrupted by a knock at the door. Ava assumes it’s the groceries but answers the door to see Steve and John. Ava questions what they want. They respond that they are there to talk about Clyde Weston.

Julie tells Maggie that she’s not complaining but she’s just a little tired. Julie says she loves Thomas and Charlotte but questions when spring break ends. Konstantin says it’s time for his morning walk and asks Maggie to continue their conversation later over afternoon tea in the garden which Maggie agrees to as Konstantin exits. Julie then questions what she walked in on.

Brady is surprised since Theresa said she was staying at the Salem Inn. Theresa explains that she was but then she ran in to Alex. Alex points out that Theresa never really moved out since half of her belongings were still there. Theresa repeats that she has to go and tells Alex that she will see him at home as she exits.

Steve tells Ava that they didn’t realize she had company so they can come back another time but Harris says if it’s about Clyde, he’d like to hear it too. John says they were going over everything and wondered if Ava remembered anything new. Ava wishes she did but says she wasn’t Clyde’s confidant. Ava says she wants Clyde caught and put away as much as anyone. Harris talks about law enforcement doing their best and points out that John and Steve are really good at their job, so the more eyes looking for Clyde, the better. Harris asks John and Steve to let them know if they find anything because he wouldn’t want them taking things in to their own hands. John claims they wouldn’t dream of it. Steve decides they’ve taken up enough of their time. Ava decides she’s going to get ready to start her day and heads to her room. Harris suggests they keep each other in the loop. Steve agrees while John asks Steve to go ahead as he wants to pick Harris’ brain about a couple things. Steve tells John that he’ll see him back at the office and exits. John asks Harris since they are keeping each other in the loop, if he can get a look at Goldman’s personnel file. Harris says they’ve scoured everything they have on her while John feels fresh eyes can’t hurt. Harris tells John that he already knows that’s against policy. John argues that it might help put Clyde behind bars. John says they have both worked outside the lines from time to time. Harris asks if her personnel file is all she needs. John adds that he also has a personal question for him about them that they both have in common. John calls it a shared experience and he’s talking about what Megan did to him. Harris says he tries not to think about that. John asks how that’s working out for him. Harris admits in the beginning, it wasn’t good, until he went to Bayview and that helped a lot mostly thanks to Marlena. John wonders if that’s enough sometimes. Harris asks what he means. John asks Harris if he’s afraid that he’s nothing but a ticking time bomb and that anytime, it could happen all over again.

After Maggie fills Julie in, Julie calls it terrible for Konstantin to lose his daughter that way and worries about the agony for John feeling responsible. Maggie comments on knowing that Victor played a part in it and says she’s had to dig deep in her feelings about who Victor really was. Julie calls Victor a complicated paradox but says Doug is too as he certainly has a past, but now he’s a model citizen and the most loving man she ever met. Julie encourages that Maggie brought out the best in Victor. Maggie says Julie has a gift for saying the right thing and lifting everyone’s spirits. Julie toasts to them knowing how to pick them.

Brady questions Alex about he and Theresa going from almost engaged to roommates again. Alex asks why not since it gives Theresa a chance to find her own place and claims there’s no hidden agenda, as he just wants what is best for her. Alex thinks Theresa has the ability to make serious waves in the company. Brady comments on Alex sounding like Victor there, so he’s glad that he’s pushing that legacy forward. Alex says finding out Victor was his father put another level of pressure on him, so he just wants to make him proud. Brady encourages that he thinks Victor would be very proud. Alex says he appreciates that and he’s happy to hear that Tate was exonerated. Brady talks about the challenges and wanting Tate to know what a healthy relationship is. Brady adds that he wants the same thing for Theresa which is why he’s warning Alex not to screw with her.

Theresa walks through the town square and runs in to Konstantin, who says he’s been trying to reach her but she never responds. Theresa argues that she’s been busy, the world doesn’t revolve around him, and she’s in a rush. Konstantin wants an update on her relationship with Alex. Theresa informs him that he’ll be pleased to hear that she moved back in to Alex’s apartment, but she’s keeping it strictly platonic as roommates in separate rooms. Konstantin says that’s for now. Theresa questions if she’s not moving fast enough for him. Konstantin responds that what he’s about to say might surprise her.

Steve brings flowers to Kayla in her office. Kayla questions what he did. Steve asks if he can’t just bring his wife flowers. Kayla says not unless he’s done something she won’t be happy about. Kayla adds that it was so obvious at the Pub that something was going on. Kayla asks Steve to talk to her. Steve says he hates keeping secrets from her but he doesn’t want to put her in a position of having to lie for him. Kayla argues that he knows she has his back and would do anything for him, so she asks him to tell her what’s going on. Steve tells her to sit down because it’s a long story.

Harris tells John that he’d be lying if he said it didn’t cross his mind that it could happen all over again, but working with the doctors and working on himself saved him. Harris says he has to live with what he did as that’s never going to change. Harris admits in the beginning, it was tough as he was so overwhelmed with the guilt. John asks how he dealt with it. Harris says he just kept reminding himself that those actions were not committed freely, so he wasn’t responsible for those actions. Harris can see that John is still struggling. Harris says it took him a long time to come to terms with his past. Harris encourages that John has to tell himself every day that it was not his fault and put the blame where the blame belongs on the people who tried to control him. Harris declares that they were victims, but to continue to not be victimized by them, he has to forgive himself.

Kayla can’t believe it and questions Steve, John, and Ava creating this whole hazmat incident as a cover to extract Clyde Weston from prison. Kayla goes over Steve breaking a dangerous criminal and convicted murderer out of prison. Steve says he was desperate and afraid he’d never see his son again. Kayla complains that he negotiated with a terrorist. Steve feels he had no choice because he knew Clyde would kill Tripp and Wendy if he didn’t do something. Kayla questions breaking him out of prison being the only option. Kayla adds that it’s not shocking that Ava double crossed him which Steve admits they should’ve anticipated. Kayla complains that Steve would trust Ava. Steve argues that time was not on their side and he thought he was going to lose his son. Steve knew it’d be dangerous. Kayla asks how he could do something so stupid.

Alex says that Brady has given him a lot of insight and advice in regards to Theresa. Alex feels his subtext was that a recovering addict is always on the verge of a relapse and now he’s telling him not to screw with her. Brady doesn’t want things to end badly for her and just wants her to be okay. Alex feels it just goes further than that with all his interventions. Alex believes Brady is far more interested in Theresa than just as the mother of his child. Brady assures that’s not the case as he wants Theresa to be stable as her life is complicated enough without involving Kristen. Alex questions why she’d have to deal with Kristen. Brady points out that Kristen is going to be around if she and Alex are dating. Alex points out that it’d be a plus for Brady because Kristen being around would drive Theresa right back to him. Brady repeats that he just wants the best for Theresa and that’s the extent of his concern. Alex says he’s not very convincing and he thinks Brady is lying to himself. Brady decides he should leave then. Alex reminds him that Theresa is back under his roof and whatever happens between them is between them. Brady says the notice is served loud and clear as he exits the office.

Konstantin tells Theresa that nothing attracts men like Alex more than forbidden fruit. Konstantin says he’s observed this over the years. Theresa mocks his expertise. Konstantin argues that they both know men like Alex will want what they cannot have, so she must create that illusion for him, so he will run right in to her arms and her bed. Theresa says she already knew that and that he’ll be pleased to know her plan is to slow burn until Alex is consumed by the flames of passion. Theresa then walks away.

Steve tells Kayla that he’s not proud of what he did and he wishes he hadn’t agreed to it, but it was an awful sudden turn of events and asks Kayla to try to understand that. Kayla can’t understand why Steve ever trusted Ava. Steve argues that he keeps telling her that he was desperate and thought his son was going to die. Steve adds that things would’ve been different if Ava came to him as soon as Clyde got his hooks into her. Kayla complains that she didn’t because Ava is incapable of thinking about anyone other than herself before it’s too late. Steve shouts that she doesn’t have to remind him. Kayla feels she obviously does because Steve was deceived by Ava again in the worst possible way. Kayla complains that every time they are sucked in to Ava’s vortex, they are the ones who suffer and Steve should know better, but he let it happen again. Kayla declares there is no damn excuse for that as she then storms out of her office.

Brady joins John in the town square and says he wanted to talk to him. John asks if everything is okay. Brady says there’s nothing to report but he knows something has been weighing on John and he feels he hasn’t been attentive. John says to forget about him and talk about something good for a change like Tate coming home. Brady calls that a big relief and mentions their plan to go to a Cubs game this weekend. Brady invites John to join them which John says he would love. Brady still wants to know how John is doing. John responds that he’s feeling a lot better today. Brady says he can see that in his eyes, like he finally found peace or something. John says that’s what he’s been praying for and he’s starting to feel like his prayers are being answered.

Maggie tells Julie how much she lifts her spirits and how she keeps her optimism even in the darkest of times. Julie says the alternative would be to sink in to despair. Julie says Maggie makes her faith in the human race rise because she is all heart. Julie asks Maggie how Holly is doing. Maggie says she’s fine, physically, but confessed that it was her drugs that she overdosed on and not Tate’s. Maggie says on one hand, she’s relieved that Holly is home and Brady and Theresa have that weight off their shoulders but on the other hand, she’s sad to know her granddaughter is using drugs. Julie encourages that they are all here for her and Maggie is not alone. Julie then points out that Maggie is not alone that often these days as she and Konstantin seem to be growing closer. Maggie confirms they are and says he’s become a very good friend.

Alex comes home to Theresa, who is folding her lingerie as part of her laundry which distracts Alex. Alex says he’s going to shower and then will start cooking. Theresa remarks that her mission is close to accomplished.

Ava comes back to the living room and kisses Harris. Ava asks what’s wrong. Harris says he was just going to his place to get some clothes for work and assuming he’s going to stay the night, so he will be right back. Ava tells him that he knows where she’ll be as he then exits. Ava then gets a phone call from an unknown number. Ava answers and it’s Clyde, calling from the park. Clyde says hello and bets that she thought she was rid of him.

Hmm. So, everything here is on my special diet, huh? Definitely. You want oatmeal? Wheat toast? Fresh fruit? Would you like some tea? Black coffee? Hmm. What I would like is a bear claw. Well, you’ll be able to have your bear claws very soon, my dear. I know, I know. And I don’t mean to complain. In fact, I am sorry.

I’m very, very grateful that this wonderful treatment exists and the only reason that I’m not looking forward to it has Nothing to do with food or even having no one to talk to for a few days. Oh What’s oh, it’s gonna be hard for me since in case you haven’t noticed I do like to talk I noticed Oh, no.

The reason I’m dreading the treatment is that I hate being away from you, Abraham, or, uh, for even one minute.

Hey, what are you doing here? What is that? The key to the Horton cabin. Sarah gave it to me. We are starting our mini honeymoon today. Today. Like, like now? Today. Yeah. A few cozy days away from it all. Just the two of us. Yeah. There’s just one problem after work, you know that. Oh, right, right. Um, well, I guess our mini honeymoon will just have to wait then.

I’m sorry. That’s okay. It’s your job. I get it. Thank you for understanding. Sure. I

don’t believe this. Stefan DiMera confessed to running illegal drugs out of the Bistro Cafe. Demira is currently behind bars? What the hell?

No, this spectator did not get an exclusive because it is run by Demira. My office will be releasing a statement as soon as possible today. You can follow up with my communications officer. Okay. Good morning. Holly. Yeah? Look, I know you’re upset about being punished. But you chose to do drugs, and then you decided to lie to us about it.

Excuse me, you’ve never lied? Everyone makes mistakes. But this needs to be a lesson learned. Hmm. Okay, well, if everyone makes mistakes, how’s it fair that Tate and I can’t see each other anymore? We’ve already been over this. That was Tate’s parents decision, and under the circumstances, I can’t say that I blame them.

Look, I know that you think you want to be with Tate right now, but I believe in time you’ll realize that this separation is for the best. You want to know what I really think? I think you blew everything out of proportion right from the beginning, arresting Tate when there was no real reason to. So guess what?

This is all your fault, EJ.

So? How was it? Your first day back at work? Uh, it felt good. Getting back to normal. Yeah. But, uh, what about you? Have you decided when you’re going back? I’m not sure. Rafe left it up to me. That’s very generous. Yeah. Okay. That’s good. You mind telling me what we’re doing out here? I’ll show you. It is pretty chilly out.

They say a storm’s coming in soon. Oh, that’s okay. We’re gonna work up a sweat. What are those for? You’re gonna punch me.

Hello? Well, hello there, little lady. I’ll bet you thought you were rid of me, huh? What do you want? Well, I want you to listen up. Okay, no, you listen to me. You almost killed my son and his girlfriend, so unless you have called to tell me where you are so I can come slit your throat and just watch you bleed out, I got nothing to say to you anymore.

Good gracious, such hostility. Take a chill pill, mama. Word on the street is your little boy’s doing just fine. Now, unless you want me to disavow Stefan’s mere culprit confession to the police, I suggest you just sit back and listen to what I have to say. Now, I just finished reading this morning’s news.

Uh, Stephan DiMera arrested, blah, blah, yeah. Here we go. The DiMera heir is currently behind bars awaiting arraignment. His ex business partner at the bistro, Ava Vitali, declined comment. Um, ex partner Ava? I don’t think so. Because I have one little more job I need you to do for me.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

You want me to run your new drug empire? You used to run bangs for the Philly mob, didn’t you? That was a long time ago. I’m going straight. Trying to put my life back together in that. Starts with getting a legitimate job. Well, I’ll set you up with a legitimate job, all right? That’s not a problem. I got connections at the bistro.

You still there? Yeah. Good. You know, for a second there, I thought maybe you hung up on me. I’m here. Well, you’re a smart lady. Look, the bistro closed. I got forced out because of everything that went down. Well, you better force your way back in. Look, I don’t know or care how you and your robo cop boyfriend got Stefan to take the fall, but we both know that you’re far from innocent on this.

So if you want to keep flying under the radar, you’d best do what I tell you to do.

Punch you? Come on, put the gloves on. Physical activity is great for working off nerves and stress. You know, against the endorphins flowing. Hmm. Okay. Look, Wendy After what we went through, I mean, it’s no surprise that we have PTSD. And so it might be good for us to work some of our feelings out in a physical way that’s perfectly safe.

Okay, but boxing? I’ve never done it before. I mean, either, but I’ve always wanted to give it a try. You know, I was thinking more like jogging. But I guess I could give boxing a try. All right, cool. Let’s do this.

You are one sneaky fella. Oh, me? Uh huh. My second in command was wondering why I even showed up when I am supposed to be on my mini honeymoon today. Okay, okay, I admit I did speak to some of your staff and they agreed to cover you for the next few days. Okay, well that was good of them, but Johnny, it’s not right.

What? Of course it is. Look, Dee. Adore you. And I also conspired with them on your behalf to pay them time and a half while we’re gone. Don’t worry, I’ll cover it. Okay, that was very generous of you and really, really thoughtful, but But? What? You don’t want to go? No, no, I really want to go. Like, so much, but We’ll just go.

Mama, you know, she starts her treatment today. Which is why I scheduled this for right now, because she’s gonna have to be in isolation. You’re not gonna be able to be with her for the next few days, and I figured that you’re gonna want to spend as much time with her as possible once she’s no longer radioactive.

That’s true. And the Horton cabin is fairly close in case you have to come back here for any reason, which you won’t because everything’s gonna be fine with your mom with sweet bits. Well, how do I say no to that? Well, I’ll tell you. You can’t. And I promise you that this is going to be the best time ever, Mrs.

DiMera. Well, I already know that, Mr. Dupree. Because I’m going to be alone in a cabin with the sexiest husband in the world.

Yes, Mr. Shin, I have everything under control. I know the story’s out. Stefan was arrested and is incarcerated. I realize it’s not a good look for the company, but I just want to EJ! No. Mr. Shin, I promise you, you have my word. I’ll handle it. And furthermore Hello? You know what? I don’t believe this. Our brother is in jail on drug charges, and I have to find out about it in The Spectator.

Yes. What the hell?

One of my brothers locks up my other brother and my youngest brother Publishes a story about it and no one thinks to tell me get a grip Krista. Okay, you know what? I’d love to get a grip I’d love to get a grip around all three of your necks Stefan was running the company. Where the hell does that leave DiMera Enterprises?

Incapable hands. Look, you have nothing to worry about, and I have to run, so if you’ll excuse me. Oh, oh, nothing to worry about except the family business going under!

Dad! Oh, sorry son, I’m in a bit of a rush. Oh, hey, I just, uh, wait, I just, uh, I wanted to let you know that Chanel and I are going to be out of town for the next couple of days. We’re headed out to the Horton cabin for a mini honeymoon. That’s great, that’s long overdue. Oh, wait a second, I also wanted to ask you about Uncle Stefan, he’s in jail.

What the heck? You two, do you even care? Yeah, of course I do, he’s my uncle. And he was supplying the drugs that nearly got Holly killed. What? Look, everything is fine and taken care of, okay? So don’t worry. So please go enjoy your honeymoon. You both deserve some time off, okay? Oh my god. Oh my god, Tripp, are you okay?

Oh, I’m so sorry. I was aiming for the mitts. I guess I just went a little overboard. No, no, no. It’s okay. It’s okay. You, uh Mean right hook, though. You sure you’ve never done this before? Well, I studied taekwondo for about eight years. I’m a brown belt. Oh, well. But no, I’ve never punched anyone before. Well, I think you’re ready for the black belt, just saying.

Remind me to never get in a fight with you. Well, taekwondo. Is about kindness, forgiveness, building a peaceful world, not fighting. Good to know. Your turn. You know, uh, more than I think about it, uh, jockeying doesn’t sound that bad of an idea.

Then I’ll race ya.

Oh, I don’t care about flying under the radar. You want to tell someone that I was just as involved as Stefan? Go right ahead. It’s gonna be his word against yours. And I would rather park my ass in jail than ever do anything with you again. Is that so? I’m hanging up now. Do not call me back. What would Sweetie Pie Harris say if he knew how I got out of prison?

Yeah, that caught your attention, didn’t it? Love it like that. That’s a hard thing to give up when all I’m asking is just one itty bitty favor. Uh uh. No, I’m not doing it. I am not laundering your money. I am not your distribution hub. Well, who said anything about that? No, this job is easy peasy. Listen up.

Gil hid a little black book at the bistro. Inside that book. Is all the info on my suppliers and my dealers. There is no digital trail on me. Everything is in that book in pen and ink. Now, I need you to get that book to me. That book needs to be placed in my hands and no one else’s. And I mean no one.

Comprende? Now, I ain’t asking you to kill nobody or kidnap them or Or even betray your little PI friends. At least, not to their faces. But that little book is the only trail back to me. So, if you get it to me, here’s what I’ll do. I’ll pick up and move my operations elsewhere. You’ll never have to hear from me again.

Ava. Speak to me.

This is the last thing I will ever do for you. And then I’m out. Absolutely, Ava. Absolutely.

Finished! You? Not quite. Oh, you are strict. You need your strength for this treatment. I need my strength to sit all alone twiddling my thumb.

Happy now? Very. Now, don’t worry. You’re going to be able to eat all your favorite foods again. I know, I know. Mama. Oh, oh, my sweet baby girl. I brought you some treats. Oh, you’re an angel. But, uh, Oh, um, Chanel, honey, bear claws aren’t on the approved food list. Well, mama, you underestimate me because these are made with non iodized salt.

So, you’re all good. Oh, really? Oh, wait, wait, wait. Uh, uh, uh, are they made with iodate dough conditioners? Definitely not. Oh! Ha ha ha! Good amyloid! Mmm! Okay, uh, well, I have to run, but I will have my phone on me 24 7, so if you need me to come back, you just call me. Okay? Come back? From where? Oh, yeah, I forgot that little detail.

Johnny and I are going to the Horton Family Cabin for, like, a little mini honeymoon. Oh! How exciting! But, but if you want me to stay, I’ll stay. Ah, ah, ah, no, no, no, no. I’ll go. I insist. Oh, and you bundle up because it’s gonna get cold later. Oh, well, I’m sure they’ll find a way to keep warm. Ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah, ah.

Ah, ah, ah. Ooh, ooh. Ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah. So, some spring break, right? Yeah, it was a total waste. I’m so not ready to go back to school. Yeah, me neither, but we don’t really have a choice. There is one good thing, and it’s our parents can’t keep us separated while we’re there. I know, right? So, how about we make a pact?

What do you mean? Okay, um, let’s agree to find each other between periods. And we’ll hold hands in the halls and talk. And then, and then for lunch we’ll find a really private, secret space to, you know, be together. With no one staring at us or anything. I have the perfect spot, under the oak tree at the far end of the quad.

Yes, that’s perfect. But, in the meantime The

gardeners? Hey, why don’t we sneak up to my room before anyone sees us? And I’ll be sure to lock the door this time. Yeah, yeah, I’m down. Let’s just make sure the coast is clear.


Holly! Hi. Uh oh. I’ve heard that tone before. What’s wrong? Nothing. Except that I literally have no life. And I already know what you’re gonna say. That I’m overreacting. Feeling sorry for myself. Oh, fuck. I’m not going to say that, because I have no idea what you’re even talking about. Um, Tate and I are not allowed to see each other anymore.

Ah, damn. That sucks. Yeah, tell me about it. Oh, and just so you know, I’m not in love with Tate. In case, like, anyone tries to tell you I am. Nobody’s told me that. Good, because I’m not. Okay, got it. I, I do really like him though. I mean, he’s a good guy. But it doesn’t matter because my mother and stepdad number three have decided we’re toxic for each other.

And like, they’re not. Sorry Johnny, I know EJ’s your dad and all, but I think him and my mom are a total mismatch. Well, I don’t know about that. But I am sorry to hear about you and Tate, that you can’t hang out with each other anymore. Me too. Bye. It’s my fault, really. I made such a mess out of everything.

Look, Holly, you messed up. Okay, we all do it. And now you’re paying the consequences. And pretty soon, this is going to be nothing but a bad memory for you. Okay? Um, hey, look, I hate to do this, but Chanel is gonna be here any minute. We’re getting away for the weekend, so I’m out. I kind of need to go back.

Yeah, I know. Totally. I’m really happy for you guys. You love each other so much. I hope I can find that one day. You will. You will. But don’t rush it, okay? You’ve got loads of time, okay? And hey, when we get back, if you still want to talk, I’m available. No judgment, okay? Okay, thanks Johnny. Have a good time.

Thanks. Holly? It’s me, girl! Hi! Hi, you busy?

You want to paint nails like we used to? Uh, yeah, let’s do it. Come on, let’s go get our mani pedi bag. Oh. You beat me by like 10 seconds. No, I slowed down so you wouldn’t choke on my dust. Or I caught up because of my lightning speed. Oh, nice try. You want some water? Yeah, please. Oh

my god, did you see this? What? The Spectator article about Stefan O’Meara. He confessed to running drugs out of the bistro. He’s in jail. Does it say anything about my mom? Just that his ex business partner declined comment. Hey. Mom. What’s wrong? You okay? Yeah, I’m fine, but you’ve got some explaining to do.

What’s, what’s going on? Mom, why would Seven confess? Beats me. I thought you were both forced into this shady stuff. I thought you were both threatened by Clyde. Yeah, we were. I guess He felt so guilty about what happened to the two of you. That doesn’t sound like Stefan. Who cares, right? I mean, this is great.

I mean, you can finally put all this stuff behind you. Yeah, absolutely. Yep, I’m going to, uh, make a fresh start, starting with quitting the bistro. You’re quitting? Yeah. I already did. Too much bad luck and too many bad memories. Again, a fresh start. And that includes finding a new place to live.

How’s this? Impressive. Very unique. My mom says I’m one of a kind. But you definitely are. So how’s school going? What’s your favorite subject? Lunch. Mine too. You were always good at math though. I remember when I was your tutor. It’s okay. I like reading better. Reading’s fun.

Okay, we’re taking off. Where are you going? On a much needed honeymoon. Aw, well, you guys have a great time. We will

all, I’m tapping away.

Mm. I am going to miss you. Oh. Oh. Not as much as I’m going to miss you, and I’m going through this procedure knowing that you are gonna be at home waiting for me, . And that you remember our history again? Oh. It comforts me so, knowing that you love me now, then, and always. And with all my heart.

You’re moving out. Newlyweds need their space. We’re not Exactly newlyweds. Well, I heard you exchanged vows. Wendy Shin, with my whole heart, I take you as my wife. I promise to respect you as a person, as a partner, and an equal. You know, before you came along, I wasn’t sure I believed in finding the one. And, uh, relationships brought me a lot of heartache, a lot of pain.

And now I know that things just didn’t work out in the past because fate was just sending me to you. Tripp Johnson,

with all my heart I take you as my husband. And I promise to be by your side, to learn with you, to encourage you. To respect you and accept you. We are equals. We’re friends. We’re lovers.

And now we’re husband and wife.

And I vow to love you and to cherish you with all my being. Till I draw my very last breath on this earth.

You gonna make it official? Maybe, but uh, for now our vows are on the back burner. Yeah, we’re just happy being together. Okay, well still, you two need your space. You don’t have to do this alone. Please, I nearly got you guys killed. Okay. Look, you guys have been too generous. You’ve let me stay way too long.

I just think moving out on my own is going to be the best for everyone.

Well, well, not the Ritz, but it’s pleasant enough. Well, it’s only for a couple of days. And then I’ll be, I’ll be back at home. But still having to stay a few feet away from everybody. Strange how a little tiny pill can radiate for days. Oh. Hello, Mayor. Former Mayor. Good to see you, Dr. Johnson. Good to see you guys as well.

You know, we’re so relieved that you and Wendy were rescued. Thank you. What a horrifying ordeal. It was, it was, but, you know, we’re, we’re doing okay now and we’re feeling very lucky. Oh, as am I. Yeah, I heard you had, uh, quite the ordeal yourself while I was away, but with a really happy ending. Well, you know, we are all, we’re all very blessed.

Yeah, we sure are. Well, I think, uh, we should get you started. Okay, and, uh, but one thing, though. There is something I have to ask all my female patients. Uh, is there any chance you might be pregnant? Oh, ha! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Oh. Um. Are you gonna card me for alcohol, too? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. I’ll take that as a no.

Boy, I’m big. I’m being this big. Okay, then we should be good to go. Alright, we’re gonna take you to a special room to take the radioactive pill, and then you’ll be brought back here to stay until the doctors give you the green light to leave, okay? Okay, um, before we, uh, go to the special room, can my husband and I just have a minute?

Sure. I’ll send the nurse to come get you in about ten minutes. Are

you going to do this every time we show up at a new place? Every single time. Wow. Wow. This place is really charming, isn’t it? It’s cozy. Private. Which means that we can be as loud as we want. Unlike Che DiMera. Well, that is a definite selling point. I wonder when was the last time anyone was here? Oh, well, judging by the firewood, quite a while.

So, I’m going to go outside and bring us some back in. Oh my god. Are you gonna chop down firewood to keep me warm? I am so turned on right now. Well, in that case, I won’t mention that Sarah told me there’s a wood pile outside. Yeah, definitely don’t mention that. Okay. Okay. All right, I’m gonna go chop some manly wood.

Woman, don’t worry, I’ll be back in two shakes of a lamp still.

Hey, Missy. What’s with the face? Do you like boys? Some of them. I don’t. I’m never getting married. Oh, yeah? Well, you don’t have to. What do you want to be when you grow up? A vet. No. A pilot. Wait! A professional scuba diver. To study sea animals. That sounds like fun. So you like animals, huh? Me too.

Rachel! Go upstairs. Why? Because I said so. Don’t you want me to paint your nails? Rachel! Now!

What the hell are you doing? We were just hanging out, that’s all. Well, not anymore. Do you understand? You stay away from my daughter.

Did you hear me? You stay away from Rachel. We were just doing manicures. That’s all. Like we used to. Like you used to. Well you used to not do drugs back then. I’m not doing drugs anymore. Oh Holly, is that just another lie? Like you lied about doing drugs before and let Tate take the fall? That boy was like a son to me.

Not to mention that he is Rachel’s half brother. How do you think she is gonna feel when she finds out what you did to him? You know what? Rachel and I No! No, no, no. There is no Rachel in you anymore. And unfortunately, we live in the same house. But mark my words, if I find you seeing her again, you will regret it.

Hey! That’s enough! You will not talk to her like that anymore! You know what? Rachel and Holly, they were getting down Oh, they were doing what? Doing their nails, listening to Cannibal Corpse? Are you serious? Okay, you know what? Rachel is my daughter, and I will decide who she spends time with. Oh, that is rich coming from you, considering your villainous history with Brady and Teresa, Malena, Eric, just to name a few.

Would you like me to list your villainous history? You know what? Get off your high horse, EJ. Okay. Oh,

that woman makes my blood boil. I, I’m sorry I lost my temper. I’m not. Thanks for having my back. You’re welcome. Um, if my sister gives you any more trouble, just let me know, alright? Okay. So, I

was, uh, thinking, you need help looking for a new place. Oh, I can manage. Eva, you really don’t have to go. You’ve been really good to me, Wendy. I appreciate it.

Okay, the fire. So we should start to warm up in here soon. Might take a little while, though. Well, you know, I have an idea of how we could speed that up. Oh, you do?

I will love you forever, my husband. I will love you forever, my beautiful wife. And dream a life Dream a life

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Alright, partner, you got anything? Bad news. I did several deep dive searches and nothing’s come up yet. Wherever Weston is, he’s definitely off the grid. God, I still can’t believe that son of a bitch got away. I damn well should have known that Ava would double crosses. Yeah, you know, I’m not gonna make excuses for her, but obviously she wasn’t thinking straight.

Worried about her son’s life and all. Yeah, well, her going rogue let Clyde and Goldman get away, which could have cost Tripp and Wendy their lives anyway. Yeah, yeah, it was a big league screw up, but you know I’ve been thinking. Yeah, what have you been thinking? How do we know that Ava doesn’t know more than she’s letting on?

Alright, you let me sleep in. Ah, well, you know, when the body speaks, you must listen. When you’re tired, sleep. When you’re hungry, Mmm.

Mmm. I was gonna say eat, but that works too. Mmm.

How you feeling? Slightly flushed. Elevated. Heartbeat. No, I meant What? I meant, I meant today. Oh. Oh, okay. So you mean, um Since I quit my job at the bistro.

You know I feel free.

The first time and I, wow. I don’t even, I don’t even remember. I feel like my life belongs to me again. It’s a great way to start a day. Yeah. You know, I can think of an even better way to start it. A penny for your thoughts. But

I always thought the price was a measly sum. Given inflation and Are you okay, Maggie? What is it? Oh, it’s just something I’ve been grappling with before. You know, I’m trying to reconcile in my mind the many sides of Victor. We, we all have our pasts, Maggie. Some more troubled than others, but what is important is that we are here in the present.

You are truly a remarkable man. I’m inspired by the woman that stands before me.

Now that is the very picture of being in the zone. What can I do for you, Alex? Nothing, I just wanted to tell you that your performance in the status update meeting was excellent. Very impressive. And I want to tell you that it’s very good to have you back here in the flesh. Not just on the screen. Oh, yeah screens just don’t cut it, huh?

I’d have to say it really is great to be back in the office. Seeing ad inventory go down while sales go up. Oh my god, it’s true. What? Uh, the word on the floor was that, uh, T Boss, uh, is back in the office, and here you are. Oh, yeah, you’re gonna have to find me a better nickname than that. No, no, it’s flattering.

If the marketing department doesn’t like you, they don’t give you a nickname. Okay, well, it doesn’t improve the name, but it does blunt the cringe, so Hey, um, I was gonna call you, but now that you’re here, I was wondering if I could talk to you for a minute. It’s about Tate and Dolly. What? What did you do to our son now?

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Mmm, now I’m gonna say this, and I can’t even believe I’m gonna say this. Vegan bacon? Vegan bacon, you made me a believer. Okay, well, I will just tell you that in my humble opinion, Tempeh is the undisputed king of the soybean genre. Well, it does, uh, it does taste good. Oh, you should check that. It might be about the audit.

Yes, it is. And? They wrapped it up. Hold on. Everything checks out at the bistro. The books are clean. And there’s nothing linking you to any illegal activity at all. Oh, thank God. Oh my gosh. Well, you know, Stephan taking responsibility for what happened. I mean, that was huge, obviously. Yeah, I mean, he had no choice.

It was either that or he was going to take the fall for attempted murder of a cop. Yeah, but I mean, the fact that he actually took responsibility, I mean, he took the fall. He did. Yeah. And it’s over. But from that look you just gave me, I’m not sure you really believe that. Look, Harris, I want to. I do, but too many people know that I was involved.

They know that it wasn’t just Stefan acting alone. Yeah, Clyde, and Steve, and John, I mean, even Tripp and Wendy suspected it. Yeah, but nobody’s gonna say anything. I mean, if Stefan doesn’t, you think, you think Clyde cares who takes the fall? And anything you did, you were forced to do. And nobody’s gonna say anything that contradicts Stefan’s statement because they all want to protect you.

Tripp, Wendy, Steve, and John.

Clyde has no power over you now. You’re free. You’re free to live your life. And you’re free to plan your future.

So what do you think, partner? Does Ava know something she’s not telling us? It’s hard to say. I do know she wants Weston to pay for what he did to Tripp. Yep, but this is Ava. Exactly. As soon as you think you can trust her, this, this time, and she won’t do something reckless or destructive, you’re quickly reminded that you’re nothing but a gullible fool.

Yeah, that’s a fact. All right, let’s talk to her again. Maybe she will remember something new that will help us put that Animal back in his cage because if Wesson hurts anybody else while he’s out there on the run, that’s on us Yeah, and I know that neither one of us can live with that What can’t you live with The tate showed up at holly’s yeah after we told him over and over again not to he just defied us He lied!

Were EJ and Nicole there? They were. They were. And after we all got over the shock of seeing him there, I told them, I said, you got to keep your daughter away from our son. Period. Well, it’s obvious that they see what we see. That these two kids are totally toxic for each other. But what just boggles my mind is, why does Tate still want to spend time with this girl after everything that she’s put into it?

Because this, this, this teen infatuation thing, it’s powerful. As, you know, as we know. But as long as the parents are aligned, and all of us agree that they should be a part, I think this thing will settle down. It’s all good. Brady, thank you so much. Oh, it’s okay. so much for handling this the way that you have.

Honestly, just so maturely, and you’re just so sensible. If I had been there, I would have completely lost it. Lisa, I almost lost it. Trust me. But, hey, we have to do what’s best for our, uh, our boy, right? Yeah. I’ve got to do what’s best for our son. I am still processing.

Your relationship with Victor. I mean, how did the two of you develop a friendship over the years? Considering our history as mortal enemies, I suppose it does seem rather implausible, but even in our darkest of moments, we both understood that there was a feeling of being a kindred spirit with one another.

And as I have told you, Victor became a very important part of my life. Yeah. As in yours, obviously. Obviously.

I didn’t think that I would ever fall in love again. When I lost Mickey. But I did. Victor was my second chapter.

I couldn’t have been more surprised. And he couldn’t have been more surprising. He had a heart as big as the cosmos. He was. And deep devotion for his family.

And that’s the Victor. That I, uh, knew and loved. Well, that is the Victor that you should remember. That we both should remember.

Sweetness. It’s a surprise. I thought you were going to work. Uh, well, I thought I’d pick up a little takeout on my way. So I parked in the back, came through the kitchen, and What can’t you live with? I can’t live with, uh, the thought that Clyde Weston got away. Or the fact that he’s still out there. Barney, we better get a move on here.

We don’t want to be late to that client meeting. Right. Hey, baby, can we talk later? Of course. Okay. I love you. Yeah. Love you. Bye.

You’re very kind, Constantine. You bring out the best in me, Maggie. As you did with Victor. You were his rock, clearly. His guiding star, if you will. We needed each other. We adored each other. And I’m still struggling with what I know about Victor’s past. Constantine. Talking to you and seeing how you’ve chosen to move forward with your life and, and you found peace.

Well, it’s given me hope. Hope is what holds us together. Hope is the light that shines on what may come. This place is turning into a manhouse! I beg your pardon. Am I interrupting?

Uh, look, I will be the first to admit that I was a fool when I was a teenager. But, uh, Holly and Tate, I did not bat in their league. Uh, me neither. But, um, however we handle this, we have to be united. Agreed? Yeah. We can only pray that EJ and Nicole are on the same page. Yeah. Oh, Roy, let me see that. What? I have to go.

I have a meeting in, like, ten minutes. Oh, hey, Teresa. By the way, on my way home, I was thinking about grabbing some chicken, making my world renowned chicken piccata for dinner. Oh, yeah, yum. I love your chicken piccata. Mm, good. Uh, what? Did I miss something? Oh, you didn’t tell him? Theresa moved back in with me.

Alright, speaking of what’s next for you, what do you want to be when you grow up, Ava? Oh, well, you know, when I was a kid, I had some crazy career aspirations. Fashion designer was at the top of the list. Okay. You know, when I was a kid, I used to just cut out all these images from magazines and put them on a board, kind of like a vision board.

I can see you doing that. But, you know, it was pretty obvious that wasn’t in the cards with my family, so. It’s all good. Because, you know, if I had gone to some elite fashion institute, I probably wouldn’t have found my love of cooking. And you know that’s my passion. I do, so maybe culinary school is the next move.

Mmm. Yes, it could be my calling, huh? Yeah. But whatever you decide, I just want you to know I’m, I’m gonna be there for you. I’m cheering you on. And eating the homework. And devouring the homework. Yeah. I believe in you.

That means more to me than you know.

That’s probably my groceries.

We need to talk about Weston. Maggie I’m not complaining. I’m

just a little tired. I love Thomas. I love Charlotte. They’re wonderful children. When does spring break end? Please, Julie, relax right here. It is time for my morning walkabout anyway. Maggie, I would like to continue our conversation if you will indulge me. Afternoon tea in the garden, perhaps? That would be lovely.

What did I walk in on?

Huh. I’m just surprised, that’s all. You said you were going to be staying at the Salem Inn. I was, and then I, I ran into Alex. Yeah, and I pointed out that she never really moved out of my place. I mean, half of her belongings are still there. Yeah, so, yay, we’re roomies again. Uh, okay, I really, I really, I gotta go now.

Um, so, see you at home? Yeah, you got it, roomie. Rumi, really? Oh,

didn’t realize you had company. We can come back another time. No, no, this is about Clyde. I’d like to hear it too. Why? Well, we were going over everything we knew about him. We got to thinking that maybe you have Remember, it’s something new that could trigger lead force. Hmm. Yeah, I wish I did. You know, it’s not like I was Clyde’s confidant.

I, um, I want him caught and put away just as much as anyone else. Yeah, and you guys know, law enforcement’s putting a lot of resources into finding him, and you guys are really great at your job, so the more eyes looking for Clyde, the better. Definitely. Yeah, and obviously this, I don’t even have to say this, if you guys find anything, you just let us know, because I wouldn’t want you taking things into your own hands if, uh, if you know what I mean.

Wouldn’t dream of it.

Well, we’ve taken up enough of everyone’s time. But, uh, no stone unturned, right? Right. Well, look, I’m gonna go, uh, pull myself together, get ready to start my day.

Let’s, uh, let’s keep each other in the loop. Hundred percent. Hey, Why don’t you go on ahead? I want to pick Harris brain about a couple things. Alright then. I’ll see you back at the office. Yeah.

Well, so now that we’re keeping each other in the loop, Any chance I can get a look at Goldman’s personnel file? We, we scoured everything we have on her. Ah, fresh eyes can’t hurt. John, you know, come on, it’s against policy. You already know that. Well, what I know is it might help put Weston behind bars.

Come on, Harris. You and I have both worked outside the proverbial lines from time to time.

Goldman’s personnel file, is that all you need? Yeah, that and I’ve got a question for you, and it’s personal. I mean, if it’s, you know, if it’s about No, no, no, no, it’s got nothing to do with that. This is about you and me. Something that we both have in common here. Let’s, um, let’s call it a shared experience, and I’m talking about what Megan did to you.

Yeah, I just, uh, you know, I try not to think about that. Yeah, and how’s that working out for you? In the beginning, that wasn’t good. Until I went to Bayview, and that helped a lot, mostly thanks to your wife. Yeah, well, she’s the best at what she does, but I wonder if, if it’s enough sometimes. What do you mean?

Well, what happened to you, what, what? What happened to me?

Aren’t you afraid you’re nothing but a ticking time bomb? And somehow, someway, at any time, it can happen all over again. How

terrible for him to lose his daughter that way, and what, what agony for John to think he was in any way responsible. Well, it’s been traumatic for him, obviously. And for me, too, frankly. Knowing that Victor played a part in it. I’m sorry, darling. You know, I’ve had to dig deep into my feelings about who Victor really was.

Well, Victor was, uh, complicated. A paradox. But then again, so is Doug. I mean, Doug certainly has a past. And look at him now. A model citizen, honest as the day is long, full of empathy for everyone and The most loving man I ever met. He is that. And Victor Victor’s great virtue was falling in love with you.

Aww. Because you brought out the best in him. Well, I don’t know about that. But I do know That you have a gift for saying just the right thing and lifting everyone’s spirits. Well, I try. Let’s have a toast. Okay. What are we toasting to? Oh, to us. Okay. Because. Yes. We know how to pick them. Okay.

So just like that, you and Teresa go from being almost engaged to roommates again. Why not? It was the chance for Teresa to find a place on her own. And there’s no hidden agenda here. If that’s what you’re wondering, Brady, okay. I just want what’s best for her personally and professionally. And I think she has the ability to make some serious waves here within the company.

You sound like granddad right there. Oh yeah. Yeah. You know, when it came to business, he always strived for excellence and he always wanted to set his people up for success. And I’m glad that you are pushing that legacy forward, Alex. I like it.

You know, when I found out Victor was my father, it just put this whole other level of pressure on me when it comes to the family business, so Just want to make him proud. I think if you stick to who you are and know that what you’re doing is right, yeah, I think Victor would be very proud. Appreciate that, man.

Speaking of father and sons, I’m happy to hear that Tate was exonerated. It’s gotta be a huge relief for you and Theresa now that he’s home, right? Yeah. Despite some challenges that may be coming with it. I assume you overheard most of what we were saying and Yeah. You get the gist of the challenge, right?

I do. I mean, aside from just wanting my son to be, you know Stable and healthy and generous and kind. I want them to know what a healthy relationship is. There’s nothing more important. Agreed. Which is why I want the same thing for Teresa. The mother of my son. Which is why I’m going to say this to you again.

Told you in Greece when you two were getting to know each other. Alex, don’t screw with her.

Oh. Damn it, Constantine, you are like a bad penny. I have been trying to reach you. You never respond. Yeah, well, I’ve been busy and this is going to surprise you. But the world doesn’t revolve around you. I’m in a rush. Actually, I would like an update on your relationship with Alex Kiriakis, if you don’t mind.

Given the fact that you made a rather rash and idiotic breakup. Okay. You’ll be pleased to hear that I have moved back into Alex’s apartment. I am pleased to hear that. Yeah, but don’t get too excited because I’m keeping it strictly platonic. Just roommates in separate rooms. For now. I’m not moving fast enough for you, huh?

Actually, Theresa, what I’m about to say might surprise you.


Ah, what did you do?

Can’t I just bring my wife some flowers? Uh uh. No, ma’am. I don’t think so. Unless you’ve done something that you know I’m not going to be happy about. And since I already know something’s going on with you, it was so obvious at the pub. Talk to me.

I hate keeping secrets from you, baby. Well, then don’t. But I don’t want to put you in a position of having to lie for me. Come on. After all these years, you know that I have your back, and I will do anything for you. So tell me what’s going on. I think you might want to sit down. It’s a long story.

I’d be lying if I said that didn’t cross my mind. That it could happen all over again, as you just put it. But, working with the doctors, I Working on myself, that saved me. I still have to live with what I did, that’s, that’s never gonna change. And John, in the beginning, I, I, it was tough, man. Like, I was so, so overwhelmed from the guilt.

How’d you deal with it? I just kept reminding myself, like I do now every day, that those actions were not committed freely. That my will was not my own. Therefore, I was not responsible for those actions. We’re still struggling. I can, I can see it. And look, it took me a long time to come to terms with my past.

And I hope I’m not making it sound like it was easy. No, no, you’re not at all. Okay, John, you, what happened to you? You have to tell yourself over and over every single day that it was not your fault. It was not your fault. You got to put the blame where the blame belongs on the people who try to control you.

Because you and I were victims. But to continue not to be victimized by them,

you have to forgive yourself.

Look at this straight. You, John, and Ava created this whole hazmat incident as a cover for, what’s the word you use? Um, an extraction, an extraction of Clyde Weston from Statesville. So many words, yeah, that’s about right. So you’re telling me that you broke a dangerous criminal off? A, uh, convicted murderer.

In fact, the man who murdered our niece, Abigail, out of prison. What the hell? I was desperate, Kayla. Tripp and Wendy were missing. I was afraid I would never see my son again. So you essentially negotiated with a terrorist. What choice did I have? I knew that Weston would kill Tripp and Wendy without batting an eye if he didn’t get what he wanted.

I had to do something. Oh, so breaking him out of prison was your only course of action. And oh, how shocking that Ava double crossed you. John and I should have anticipated that. Yeah, maybe you should have. I mean, how on earth did you I can’t believe that you would trust her. Listen, everything was moving so fast.

Time was not on our side, and I thought I was going to lose my son. I knew it was dangerous. I knew it going in. But you still went in. My God, Steve. How could you do something so stupid? You

know, Brady, you’ve given me a lot of insight to Teresa, and a lot of, um You know, advice. The past few months. From making sure she feels accepted at work, to being aware that she’s fragile and needy, and that a recovered addict is always on the verge of a relapse. I never said that. Well, it was a subtext of everything you said.

And now you’re telling me not to screw with her. Alex, I don’t want things to end badly for her. I just want her to be okay. Not just for her sake, but for my son’s sake. Right, you know? Right, absolutely. And I get your point on that concern. Right. It just seems like it goes further than that. You know, with this little intervention, if you will, as well as all your previous ones, it suggests to me that you are far more interested in Teresa than just being the mother of your child.

Not so. Are you sure? I’m very, very sure about that. Look, I, I want her to be happy, I want her to be stable. Her life is complicated enough without having to deal with Kristen. Now, why would she have to deal with Kristen? Alex, She’s gonna be around, right? I mean, since you and Kristen are, uh, dating? Right, right.

And that would be a plus for you, wouldn’t it? Because if Kristen is around, as you put it, that could just drive Teresa right back into your arms, wouldn’t it? We’re doing this again? I mean Alright, let’s, let’s do it again. Listen, I, I am not interested in Teresa that way. As I said, I want her happy, I want her stable.

That is the extent of my concern for her. That’s it. Done. Period. End of story. Truth be told, you’re not very convincing. I think you’re lying to yourself. And then I think I should probably just go. Okay, well, just know that Teresa’s back under my roof, Brady, whether you like it or not. And whatever happens, or does not happen, between Teresa and I is between her and I.

Notice served. Loud and clear. Cheers.

Allow me to provide a little insight into the mind of a man. How many times can I say no thanks? Nothing attracts men like Alex more than forbidden food. I have observed this type over the years. The forbidden fruit type, yeah, got it. A rare specimen among the male species. You know, I have to say, I really, really treasure your expertise, Constantine.

It truly, it is just revolutionary. Mock me if you like, but we both know that men like Alex, we want what they cannot have. So you must provide that, create that illusion for him. So he will run right into your arms. And your pet. Mm hmm. Yeah, I already knew that. And you’ll be pleased to know that my plan is to create a slow burn until Alex’s Oh, forgive the purple prose here.

Consumed by the flames of passion.

You think I’m proud of what I did? I wish I hadn’t agreed to it. But I’m telling you, baby, it was just this This awful, sudden convergence of events. Can you at least try to understand that? No, I can’t. I can’t understand why you ever trusted Ava. I keep telling you why because I was desperate. I thought my son was gonna die.

And yeah, things would have been different if Ava had come to me in the first place, as soon as Weston got his hooks into her. But she didn’t, did she? Because she is incapable of thinking about anybody but herself, or thinking about the possible consequences of her actions before it’s too late. I know that.

You don’t have to remind me of that. Well, obviously I do. Because you were deceived by her once again, and in the worst possible way. And every time we are sucked into Ava Vitale’s little dark vortex, we are the ones that suffer. And you and I both know that. No, no, actually, you know it better than I. You know it better than I do, or at least you should.

And yet And yet you let it happen again. And there is no damn excuse for that. None.

Hey, Dad. Hey, there he is. How you doing? Good, man. Where you coming from? Uh, work. Work. But I’m glad I ran into you, because I really actually want to talk to you. Everything okay? Yeah, with me, um, nothing to report, but, uh, I know that something’s been weighing on you, and I, look, man, I have not been that attentive.

I haven’t had the bandwidth to even like You’ve been totally fine here, so forget about me anyway. Let’s talk about something good for a change, like uh, Tate coming back home, huh? Yeah, no, it’s a relief. A big relief for him, huh? But um, we were thinking about going and checking out the Cubbies this weekend.

Their lineup is unreal, isn’t it? I know it is, I know it is. And I was thinking, why don’t you come? Come on, three generations in the stands. Hell yeah! Yeah? I love that. Alright, I’m so glad. I’m so glad you said yes. Legally it is. But, but, I want to know how you’re doing, seriously. Actually, I’m feeling a lot better today.

Yeah, I can see that. I see it in your eyes, it’s almost like you, I don’t know, you found some peace or something. Oh, kid, that’s what I’ve been praying for. I’m starting to think my prayers are finally being answered.

Have I told you lately how much you lift my spirits? Tell me more. I’d love to hear it. Well, it’s not just your words of wisdom and compassion, but it’s the way you keep that wonderful optimistic perspective, even, even in the darkest of times. Well, Maggie, what’s the alternative? Just to sink into despair.

Self pity is so unattractive.

Then I look at you and my whole faith in the human race rises up. You’re all heart, Maggie.

Speaking of heart, uh, how is your little granddaughter Holly doing? Um, she’s fine. Physically. Thank God! She confessed that the drugs she overdosed on were hers and not Tate’s. Oh, I’m so sorry. Yeah. On one hand, I’m relieved. I’m relieved that Tate’s home and free of the charges and Teresa and Brady have that weight lifted off their shoulders.

And on the other hand, I’m, I’m so sad to know that my granddaughter is using. Of course. Of course. You don’t have to shoulder this burden alone. You know Doug and I are here for you. Everyone is here for you. You’re not alone. Come to think of it, you’re not all that alone these days, are you? Because of Constantine, you mean?

Well You seem to be growing closer.

We are, actually. Um, He’s become a very good friend.

Hey. Oh, hey.

Getting some laundry done? Huh. Gave it away.

Did you, um, get the chicken? What? You know, the chicken you were going to make us your amazing chicken piccata. Right, yes, yes, I have the chickens right here. I’m going to bring it in the kitchen, and I’m going to take a shower, and then I’m going to start cooking.

Sounds good. Okay.

Mission close to accomplished. Is the coast clear? Commence. All clear. Good. We can do this. Okay.

What’s wrong? Nothing’s wrong. I’m just going to go to my place and grab some clothes. We don’t need clothes for what I’ve got planned. Oh, well I do need some for work. Okay, and assuming I’m going to stay the night. Oh, okay, right, right. Okay, I’ll be right back. Okay, well you know where I’ll be.


hello. Well, hello there, little bitty. I bet you thought you were rid of me, huh?
