(when Jada showed up and saw Konstantin’s dead body)
Jada: Who’s gonna start?
Alex: Xander killed him.
Xander: Way to throw me under the bus, cuz.

(about Steve getting shot at the wedding)
Stephanie: You were the one who got hit.
Steve: Yeah, I was too slow. Maybe I shouldn’t have skipped that second cup of coffee.

Marlena: Leo, what kind of help do you need?
Leo: Mental health help of course. My brain needs major fixing, but then so does my heart.
Marlena: Well cardiology is one floor up. As far as your brain, you can make an appointment.

(to Marlena)
Leo: I bet in this crazy town you have a line of nuts waiting around the block for your services.

(about Gabi)

Transcript provided by Thane and Suzanne


[scoffing] I’m under arrest? What the hell?

I just spoke with Eric. That got your attention, didn’t it? You lied to me, Melinda. You lied to me about the kidnapping of Nicole’s baby and Jude’s so-called adoption when the truth is you were into this up to your neck!

[tense music]

OK, what I’ve been thinking is there must be a part of this baby switch story that isn’t public knowledge.

Meaning what?

Meaning why did you pay me off to not tell people, not even your own wife, that you had a kid? Doesn’t make any sense. And why wouldn’t you want your own son back the minute you found out the truth about him?

I wouldn’t expect a plebeian like yourself to understand my reasoning.

[Leo scoffs] Especially one as inebriated as you were.

[scoffs] Well, I’m stone cold sober now. And all those new zeros are still sitting in my new bank account.

[inhales deeply] So there must be a method to your mishegoss that even a journalistically-savvy fellow like myself isn’t quite cluing into.

[suspenseful music] So what is it, Daddy DiMera? Why did you make me rich? Well, given inflation, interest rates, back taxes I owe, student loans, more like comfortably getting by–wait. What was the question again?


Oh, yeah. Why did you pay me all that money just to keep you from your own son?

Oh, now we’re really getting down to brass tacks, aren’t we? All this endless drivel about how you’re risking your freedom and you can’t live with yourself and you had to come here and explain and apologize, it’s just another lie. You don’t want to live on the run. And you think I’m stupid enough to buy your BS so you can avoid it? But lucky for you, you don’t have to disappear. That’s what Statesville is for. And I’m sure they will be thrilled to welcome you for an extended stay.

[scoffs] You hypocrite.

Oh, really? Call me what you want, but I’m calling the cops!

[tense music]

+- What the hell are you doing here?

[soft orchestration] announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “Days of Our Lives.”

[sighs] So what does this place have? Hot dogs? Chicken wings? Can I at least get a glass of wine?

We’re here to talk, Kristen.

What, we couldn’t have talked in the mansion in one of the rooms?

No, not with EJ there doting over his new bundle of joy.

All right, so what is going on? What is so urgent that you had to subject me to this low-class little Eatery?

Well, I went and paid a visit to my old friend, Melinda Trask. And since she has slithered her way back into the DA’s office, I thought that maybe, just maybe, she would be able to help me reopen Gabi’s case.


Not so much. Totally screwed me.

[soft dramatic music]

[scoffs] Up to my neck, huh? Is that formal police jargon? Because the last time I checked, that wasn’t grounds for an arrest.

OK, then how about this? You told me that you weren’t directly involved in giving Sloan and Eric Nicole’s baby, but Eric just told me that you were the one that handed him off to them. Burning question is ow did you get little Jude in the first place?

OK, whatever legal action I took on behalf of my client, Ms. Petersen, obviously falls under client-attorney privilege, which I assume you’re familiar with that term.

How about you enlighten me on the way downtown, where you will be booked for kidnapping?

[tense music]

Hmm, since when do you care where money in your pocket came from or why it’s there?

[inhales deeply] Well, let’s just say I’ve heard stories about suitcases full of cash that mysteriously find their way into your possession. Lady Whistleblower knows all.

Fine, here’s the truth.

I’ll be the judge of that.

Do you want to hear it or not?

Better make it good. I have a very low boredom point.

Well, I don’t think you’ll be bored by this since it’s, well, quite poignant.

I’ll also be the judge of that.

I didn’t want Nicole to learn that there was a possibility that this baby was our son before we were absolutely certain. After everything she suffered, the last thing I wanted was to get her hopes up only to have them cruelly dashed yet again. That is why I paid you off, so I could have more time to make sure that when this baby was returned to Nicole’s arms, she would never have to give him up again. Poignant enough for you?

[intense music]

Can somebody please answer me and tell me what she’s doing here?

She showed up out of nowhere, wanting to make some kind of truce and I told her to go to hell. And I also told her that I’m going to call the cops, which I’m going to do right now.

No, stop.

[phone beeps]

[phone line trilling]

Rafe, it’s Nicole. Sloan Petersen is at my house. You need to get here right away and arrest her.

[somber music]

[Roman exhales deeply]

[chuckles] Jude, Roman, Brady.

[laughs] It does have a nice ring to it, yeah, yeah.

Would you like to hold your namesake?

Oh, you bet I would, yes. Nothing would make me happier.


[Eric sighs]

[chuckling] Oh, my God. Oh. Hey, Jude. You know what? Getting to think I was never going to meet this little guy and they had me a little worried, you know? Because, you know, when Rex told me he didn’t want me to meet Victoria, turns out she wasn’t his kid. But that is not the case with Jude. I know he is your baby and my grandson, right, Jude?


And I thought bartenders were supposed to be good listeners.


I have been calling your name for two whole minutes.

Oh, Kate, I’m so sorry. I guess my head is elsewhere.

Where is it?

Well, EJ was just in here picking up lunch.

He had baby Jude with him, that sweet little guy who was my grandson.

So it was all for Nicole’s benefit? That’s why you paid me off?

Do you doubt my love for my wife?

[suspenseful music]

Well, I’m kind of doubting your love for your son. ‘Cause even if you were trying to protect Nicole, why not just ask me to keep the truth to myself?

Oh, well, the answer to that is quite simple. You have a tendency to blurt, and so I thought it was wise to offer you a financial incentive to keep quiet. And don’t worry, I won’t be asking for that incentive to, uh, come back to me. Consider it a token of goodwill, OK?

Yeah. You’re just bursting at the seams with goodwill, aren’t you?


Surprised you’re not one of those Salvation Army bell ringers.

[EJ laughs]

[Leo chuckles]

You know what? I might just sign up for that. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take my son to go and see my wife.

Don’t you dare move an inch.

I just left Rafe a voicemail. He should be here as soon as he hears it.

Yeah, and you’re going to finally pay for what you did to her and to me.

I am already paying for what I’ve done! There is no punishment that could be worse than losing you, Eric.

[dramatic music] Or that little boy that made us a family. You once said to me that your faith in God is still informing everything that you do and how important forgiveness was. Listen to me. You quoted a passage from the Bible. I committed it to memory. “If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them. If they repent, forgive them.” You even went on further to explain how forgiveness is a matter of the heart, how… it’s the practice of seeing the other person for what they are.

So you basically handed Trask a smoking gun?

Right. She gave me this whole song and dance about how it’s not enough evidence, about how we need even more evidence to reopen the case.

More evidence than Li’s blood on Gil Carter’s book?

And what do they want? A signed confession from Gil from beyond the grave?

Damn. Why is this woman fighting this? I mean, she dated Li, right?


I mean, you’d think that she would want justice for him.

You have the right to remain silent.

I wouldn’t do that if I were you.

You have the right to an attorney.

I am warning you.

You are a criminal, Ms. Trask! You are complicit in the kidnapping of a newborn baby, which is not only illegal, but caused a great deal of misery. And for that, you will be punished.

Even if it’s at your sister’s expense?

I understand that it is impossible for you both to forgive me now. I–I can’t even forgive myself. I think the only thing that’s really getting me through, at least somewhat, is knowing that I did what I did out of love.

Out of love?

[somber music] Out of love, you let me fall in love with the child that doesn’t even belong to me?

I did. I–I hoped–

[scoffs] Foolishly, in retrospect, that no one would ever find that out.

Yeah, it was foolish! It was cruel! It was deluded.

But you don’t understand. That’s–that’s not the whole story.

[suspenseful music]

Why is Trask playing hardball? And how do we get that wretched woman to reopen Gabi’s case?

Well, Kristen, since this is not just about me getting Gabi out of prison, but it’s also about you securing that CEO position you so highly coveted–

Oh, right, right, yeah. I’m thinking. I’m thinking.

[suspenseful music]

[Kristen sighs]

Yes. I got it.

That was fast.


[clears throat] This isn’t about getting more evidence, which will be tricky.

[chuckles] Obviously, damn near impossible at this point.

OK, so if this isn’t about getting more evidence, then what?

Well, didn’t Melinda have a, uh… crush on you once upon a time?

[chuckles] Yeah. So?

Mm. So you… rekindle that, uh, attraction with her.

What exactly are you saying?

What I am saying–

[chuckles] Oh, my God. What I am saying is that you get Melinda to think that you are a man with needs since your wife is unavailable.

Oh, my God.

[sighs] You want me to seduce Melinda Trask?

Ah, by George, he’s got it.

[suspenseful music]

What does stealing Nicole’s baby have to do with my sister?

Oh, come on, Commissioner. Isn’t it rather obvious? As I tried to tell you yesterday, Stefan DiMera came to see me. And he directed me toward some evidence pertaining to the murder of Li Shin: Gil Carter’s book with Li’s blood on it.

Yeah, I’ve seen it. It’s compelling evidence.


Yeah, which I’m hoping to use to clear my sister.

Well, that it could if you could get your hands on it.

What do you mean, that’s not the whole story?

What the hell does that mean, Sloan, half right?

It means that Jude is Nicole’s baby. But not yours.

Not mine?

He’s Eric’s. Eric is the biological father.

There’s more to it. There’s more than you know–

[door closes]

Nicole, are you in there? I got some takeout, Brady burgers and– Eric. Sloan, what the hell?

Well, she came here to apologize. And now she’s telling Eric that there’s more to the story.

And your hand?

[sighs] It’s a little sore because I punched her in the jaw.

Oh, my God. Well, whatever the rest of the story is, I don’t want to hear it. What I do want is this woman out of my house and in a prison cell, so I am going to escort you to the station, Ms. Petersen.

I’m going to come with.

No, Eric, you will not! I am that little boy’s father. So I’m going to make sure that the lying bitch who kidnapped my son is taken to the authorities immediately. You go get some ice for Nicole’s hand, and I will take care of this.

Wait, Eric! I’m sorry, and I love you.

Bye, Sloan.

[tense music]

[sighs] Look, I’m sorry. I know how painful that had to be to see Jude, little baby Jude.

[soft dramatic music]

Mostly, I am in pain for my son. He was in earlier.

How is he? Never mind. Don’t answer. He has to be going through hell, right?

Well, you know Eric. He’s trying to stay stoic, you know? But I think he’s channeling his grief into this search for Sloan.

[Roman sighs] Damn it, Kate, I knew that woman was bad news from the minute she told me she didn’t like my chowder.

Oh, well, that is a Brady litmus test.

Never fails. I only hope that Sloan and anybody else who was involved in hurting my son gets what’s coming to them.

[door opens]

Oh, I am famished. What do I want? What do I want? Can you tell me about today’s specials?

Knuckle sandwich. How would that be?

Hmm. I’m assuming you mean pork knuckles, AKA Schweinshaxe, which I actually had once on a trip to Bavaria with my German cousin, Wolfgang. Third cousin, actually, but we were quite close. Um, I found it to be a little fatty and a little bit chewy, so I think I will go with an oldie but goodie… Brady’s famous chowder. What? Are we out of chowder today?

For you, we’re out of everything.

Excuse me?

I’m refusing you service, Leo.

Why? Is it because of the way I’m dressed? I know my pants are a little loud, but–

I wouldn’t serve you if you were wearing white tie and tails.



We know, Leo.

Yeah, we know. My son told me everything.

Everything, as in–

Yeah, everything as in. Everything like you blackmailing Sloan to support your shopping sprees while all along knowing that the child that they were raising was Nicole’s. And to profit out of the misery of other people, my God, how pathetic is that, Leo? How damn pathetic is that? So that is why you are not welcome in this pub.

[tense music]

[door slams]

Damn it, Sloan! You told Eric and Nicole there was more to this story? Please tell me you weren’t about to blurt out the truth about that baby, that Eric’s the father.

You know, he deserves to know.

We had an ironclad deal, Sloan. I pay you a lot of money and you disappear forever. If you open your big mouth and tell anyone about that child’s paternity, I swear to God, I’m going to make your life a living hell!

But what good is money, EJ, whenever every knock at the door, every phone call could be the police? I wanted insurance. I thought maybe I could talk to Nicole and she would–

If you talk to her, what? She would say, “Oh, you know, no harm, no foul. “I know you kidnapped my son “and made me think he was dead for six months. “But now that he’s back in my arms, everything’s fine. Hey, can we be friends? Can I braid your hair?”

[Sloan sighs]

I just thought if I talked to her face to face that she would understand why I did what I had to do. And I don’t know, she–

[scoffs] She’d call off the dogs, you know? Tell the cops to back off.

Mm. And how did that go?

She punched me in the face and called the cops.

You’re lucky she didn’t kill you with her bare hands. Now you are going to do what you were supposed to do in the first place. Take the money and go. You are going to disappear forever. Do you understand me?

That was pretty intense with Sloan. I’m sorry.

This can’t be easy for you either. But I’ll be fine. Really. Once I know she’s paid for what she did to me.

Yeah, her and her friend, Melinda Trask.

[suspenseful music]

Melinda? What are you talking about?

I ran into Rafe. Apparently, she tried to pass off some lie about what she did with Jude.

What lie?

She claimed that she really wasn’t involved. But I set him straight.

What do you mean, if I could get my hands on the book? You just said that you and Stefan went over. You have it.

Exactly, I have the book and no one else knows where it is.

Oh, my God, you’re saying–

I’m just trying to do what’s right for everybody that’s involved.

By blackmailing the police commissioner and hiding evidence? You think that’s right?

I’m just holding on to the book for safekeeping. We wouldn’t want anything to happen to it now, would we?

So this is your brilliant solution? I bed Melinda Trask and all of a sudden, the little black book becomes sufficient enough evidence after all?

Well, she did have a thing for you. And you will be highly motivated to make her happy.

OK, Kristen…

[Kristen laughs] Have you forgotten why I’m doing this in the first place? That I need to get Gabi, my wife, the love of my life, out of prison?


Huh, what?

Oh, well, all that passion for your wife, the love of your life, didn’t stop you from sleeping with Ava Vitali now, did it? Oh, I’m just saying.

[suspenseful music]

[tense music]

You look a bit shocked, brother.

Why wouldn’t I be? You come at me with some crazy accusation–

Oh, come on. You know well that this is the truth.

[chuckles] I mean, it’s not crazy that you slept with Ava. I mean, she’s a very attractive woman. It’d be crazy if you did not sleep with her, I mean, given the fact that the two of you were in such close proximity for a while there.

[suspenseful music]

How did you know?

I know all, brother.

[silverware rattles on table]

How did you know?

Well, you’re more discreet. Ava, not so much.

Oh, damn it.

Listen, in her defense, she literally just spilled it out.


I mean, I spoke with her about Li’s murder and hoping that she could help clear Gabi. And she literally just spilled it. About the two of you doing the dirty.

[clicks tongue and chuckles] To put it delicately.

[laughs] Oh, brother, come on. Looks like you’re wracked with so much guilt.

Oh, yeah.

Hey, you’re human.

[takes deep breath] I’m going to make this abundantly clear. If you ever tell anyone about this–

Come on. I mean, who am I going to tell?

[chuckles] You should be worried about Ava blurting to someone else. Because I’m sure if Gabi finds out, I’m guessing that there’s going to be hell to pay.

[Stefan sniffles]

So you expect me to let you off the hook in this horrifying kidnapping scheme? In exchange for protecting evidence that could potentially free my sister?

I don’t see what the problem is. After all, Sloan is the actual perpetrator of this crime.

But she didn’t act alone.

Well, who’s to say? I mean, even if I did happen to know something about it, and that’s a big if, the most you can do is charge me as an accessory. Besides, all is as it should be, isn’t it? Nicole’s beautiful, bouncing baby boy is back in the arms of his loving mother. And all is right in the world. So if you want your sister to have a chance at freedom with the help of that little black book, you will tell everyone, unequivocally and emphatically, that I was never anywhere near that baby.

Looks like he’s down for his afternoon nap.

He used to take a morning one too.

[somber music] And now just one, actually.

[Nicole chuckles] His bedtime is :.

Yeah, OK.

I used to rock him to sleep.

[chuckling] You know, now, he self-soothes, as they say

You noticed. You know, Holly used to do the same thing. You know, Eric, if– if this is hard for you, being around Jude–

[sighs] Yeah, actually, it is. If it’s all right… maybe I should just catch up with EJ and make sure Sloan is taken care of.

Yeah. Yeah, you should do that.

All you should really worry about right now is making up for lost time.

With your son.

[Nicole sighs]

[Nicole sighs]

[door closes]

That is a very serious and insulting accusation, Mr. Roman Brady, to even suggest that I would stoop to blackmailing someone for my own personal gain.

Well, that is usually how blackmail works, Leo.

That is true, and that is one of the reasons I am so opposed to it. In fact, it’s one of the things I am most opposed to, including but not limited to racism, homophobia, and that “Grease” sequel, my God. But I will also have you know I have contributed to anti-blackmail causes. I joined a march against blackmail a few years ago. And I even have a “blackmail is a fungus against society” T-shirt to prove it. With the sleeves cut off.

Yeah, I bet.

And with that, I will be on my way.

You’re guilty. You’re not going to get away with this, Leo.

Get away with what? That baby was taken from his parents, which I had zip to do with. And then that baby was returned to his parents, which I also had zip to do with. But obviously, that is a very happy ending. And I will have you know, I did some research. , babies a year are switched in hospitals. Quite a staggering number. And unlike the happy ending of this baby switch story, most of those babies are never unswitched. How, again, did you hear that I was blackmailing your soon-to-be ex-daughter-in-law?

I told you I heard it from my son, and Eric heard it straight from the horse’s mouth.

And by horse, I assume you mean that lying liar of a baby thief who would probably say I stole the baby myself if she thought she could get away with it?

Did you?

Did I what?

Did you steal that baby?

[Leo sighs]

Stop threatening me, Leo.

Well asking nicely hasn’t done the trick, has it?

[suspenseful music]

[sighs] Look, I know how much you love that kid. When you thought I had kidnapped him, you almost spilled everything to the cops. You risked prison to let them know I may have had a motive for kidnapping him. Thankfully for both of us, it didn’t come to that. But since I know how far you are willing to go for the sake of Jude, I know you’re willing to pay me whatever it takes to keep my mouth shut. Am I right? Of course not! What would I do with a baby? Besides dress it in some cute outfits and try to be a better parent to it than my mother was to me, which is a very low bar, because that woman was a narcissistic lunatic who wished I’d never been born? Look, we cannot believe a word that Sloan Petersen says. Obviously, she would do anything to protect herself.

[door opens]


[tense music] EJ. Oh, my God, what happened?

[Stefan sighs]

Listen up, sis. I love my wife.

[soft suspenseful music] And my only concern right now is getting her out of prison.

Right, that’s why I was suggesting that you–

Enough. I’m not going to repeat this. We’re never going to talk about this again. But what happened with Ava– what happened with that woman was a mistake. And I’m never going to do it again with anyone. Gabi is my wife, my soul mate, and I love her with my whole heart, my whole being.


I will never betray her again.

So what you’re saying is that you won’t sleep with Melinda?

No, I will not. So we’re going to have to come up with another way to get Gabi out of prison.

[Kristen sighs]

Aw, don’t look so glum, chum. You are getting everything that you want. I mean, I assume that you truly hate your sister being stuck in that prison.

All right, stop talking about my sister.

[tense music] And I never said I wasn’t arresting you.

Oh, oh, you still want to do this?

OK, fine, go ahead. Arrest me. I will go quietly, commissioner. But I just hope that Gabi doesn’t mind that you were so concerned with bringing me to justice that you couldn’t get any for her.

[Rafe sighs]

Give me the evidence when I need it?

Yep, I will, along with a little immunity for myself. That is the deal, Commish.

All right, I know what the deal is.

[Melinda laughs]

[tense music] So you better keep your word. My sister continues to serve time for a murder that she didn’t commit. I am going to find a way to lock you up in that jail. And I’m going to throw away the key.

Look, we both know that Sloan Petersen, AKA the baby thief with a heart of stone, would think nothing about sullying the good name of Lady Whistleblower. And without anyone to corroborate her claims, obviously, this is just a scurrilous rumor. Yes? No? You two are wonderful conversationalists, I have to say.

Leo, we don’t converse with you because you generally don’t make a hell of a lot of sense. So not responding to your BS is pretty much my default.

Mm, mine too. But I got to say, you little creep, you better hope they don’t find Sloan. Because she will definitely drag you down with her.

First of all, the name-calling, it’s uncalled for. And second, I will not be dragged down by the likes of Sloan Petersen or anyone else for that matter. But if I do happen to fall down, in the words of the wise Confucius, “our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Another favorite quote, this one attributable to none other than yours truly, which I am making up on the spot, so bear with me–

[Leo sighs] “Be kind to Lady W for, despite her transgressions, “which were the result of having had, “as I mentioned earlier, a horrible mother, “who made me feel unseen, unheard, “altogether invisible… “much like the character in the song ‘Cellophane Man’ “from ‘Chicago The Musical,’ well, despite all that, “the lady does mean well and in fact, has a heart as big as all outdoors.”

[somber music]

[door closes]

Oh, my precious boy.

[somber music]

Ever since you were born, my heart ached for you.

[sighs] Missing you so much. And I dreamt about you almost every night. And in that dream–

[chuckles softly] you would look at me with those big beautiful eyes. And it was–it was like I knew somehow as…

Somehow, I had this sense that you weren’t gone.

Nicole. Oh, my God.

I’m sorry, EJ. I’m–I’m so sorry.

[Nicole sighs]

[Nicole sighs]

Because… well, because… you were very much alive… in my heart and in my soul.

[sniffles] Oh, my precious boy, I am so glad to have you back.



[tense music] And Mommy is going to make sure that Sloan pays for taking you away from me.

[EJ groaning]

What happened? Where’s Sloan?

I was taking her to the car, and then she– she hit me over the head with that. I think she got away.

Maybe I can still catch her.

I think she went that way.

Hey, you’re going to be OK?

I’m fine. Go, go, go.


Thank you.

Don’t thank me. Just get the hell out of here, and don’t ever darken my doorstep again.

[ Upbeat music ]

Hope: Are you sure I didn’t scare donna off?

Brooke: You didn’t, honey. You heard her. She wanted to check on eric and make sure he was doing okay in his workout.

Katie: Well, that was her excuse. I have to admit all this talk of war with steffy feels a little intense.

Hope: Well, that’s exactly how it should feel. But steffy is about to find out that I am not going put up with her antics any longer.

Brooke: I just can’t believe that she would do this. Threaten to kill hope for the future.

Hope: Well, it’s not going to happen. I won’t let steffy do it.

Steffy: You seem shocked, but I’m serious, carter. I think it’s time we permanently end hope for the future.

Ridge: What’s this?

Steffy: We were just talking about the hope for the future numbers.

Ridge: No, I heard you. And you’re suggesting what? We get rid of hope’s line?

Bill: We don’t know for sure. Haven’t done the testing yet.

Liam: But, whoa. But she– she’s admitting this. Like, after all this time getting reacquainted with you, she’s only now telling you you could be her daughter’s father?

Bill: Better late than never.

Luna: Bill spencer could be my father?

Poppy: It’s possible. It’s highly possible.

Luna: I– what, I– I don’t understand. When I brought it up earlier, you–

Poppy: I wasn’t ready to face it yet, sweetie. I mean telling you. And telling him. I just wasn’t sure.

Luna: So, now you’re saying that I might’ve already met my father? And it’s bill spencer?

Poppy: Yes, honey. Yes.

Liam: I mean, you seem pretty psyched.

Bill: I am.

Liam: Just– okay. Is there any– any part of you that’s, I don’t know, upset with poppy? I mean, she’s been back in your life for a while now. You’d think it would’ve come up already, right?

Bill: She was afraid to tell me, liam.

Liam: Okay, but why?

Bill: Come on, you know as well as I do how many opportunistic gold diggers wanna tag me as their baby daddy? She didn’t want me to see her that way.

Liam: I mean, yeah, all right, fair. I get that. It– it’s just– there’s nothing wrong with tagging you if it’s true. And besides, luna’s an adult, right? It’s not like she’s coming at you for child support.

Bill: No, but– but there was something else. Another reason that poppy was afraid. Getting hurt. She’s in love with me, liam.

Poppy: I wish I knew how to explain.

Luna: I can’t understand. What, that you’re just telling me this now after all these years? That bill spencer could be my father?

Rj: Wait, what? Bill, actually?

Poppy: Uh, yes. He could be luna’s dad.

Luna: Can you believe it, rj? I might get to finally know my father.

Ridge: So you’re suggesting we cut a line that’s been a staple here for years?

Steffy: Well, forrester is couture, first and foremost. And I think we need to set aside our feelings and just focus on what’s best for the company.

Ridge: Oh, all right, so this is just business. There’s nothing personal about any of this stuff.

Hope: Steffy is trying to destroy every part of my life. I mean, she couldn’t be satisfied with just destroying my relationship to thomas. Sending my son out of the country. No, now she has to go after my job.

Brooke: Not just your job. Hope for the future. And that’s been your passion for years.

Katie: Right, and the message behind it.

Hope: But steffy doesn’t care about the message. Don’t you see? She doesn’t care about what good it does in the world. All she cares about is about sticking it to me and to our family. Because believe me, it is not just about the line. It’s about her versus the logan’S. And I am tired of her continually attacking us. And I’m not going to stand for it any longer.

[ Upbeat music ]

Hope: Are you sure I didn’t scare donna off?

Brooke: You didn’t, honey. You heard her. She wanted to check on eric and make sure he was doing okay in his workout.

Katie: Well, that was her excuse. I have to admit all this talk of war with steffy feels a little intense.

Hope: Well, that’s exactly how it should feel. But steffy is about to find out that I am not going put up with her antics any longer.

Brooke: I just can’t believe that she would do this. Threaten to kill hope for the future.

Hope: Well, it’s not going to happen. I won’t let steffy do it.

Steffy: You seem shocked, but I’m serious, carter. I think it’s time we permanently end hope for the future.

Ridge: What’s this?

Steffy: We were just talking about the hope for the future numbers.

Ridge: No, I heard you. And you’re suggesting what? We get rid of hope’s line?

Bill: We don’t know for sure. Haven’t done the testing yet.

Bill: Poppy said that she never truly loved a man before. Till me.

Liam: Well, that’s, uh, that’s intense.

Bill: Yeah, very. And it explains her fear of getting hurt.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, I guess if she told you about luna and you rejected her, it’s like you’re rejecting poppy and her daughter.

Bill: But liam, you’ve got to understand, it’s always just been poppy and luna. You know, they have an extraordinarily tight bond. And it’s taken poppy a long time to come to terms with sharing her daughter with anyone else.

Liam: But you- you’ve, I mean, you’ve thought about this and you’re ready and willing if it does turn out.

Bill: Absolutely. Yeah, I– I told poppy that if I’m luna’s dad, I am going to make a place for both of them in my life.

Liam: Wow. Well, wait a second. Does luna know about any of this?

Bill: As a matter of fact, poppy’s talking to her about it right now. And I hope she’s as excited as I am.

Rj: You’ve been wanting to know who your father is forever. I’m so happy for you. Even if it is bill.

Luna: Okay, okay, well, we don’t know for sure yet, but I’m dying to know if it’s true.

Poppy: Well, let’s go to bill now and put this in motion. He’s expecting us. I told him that I wanted to break the news to you first.

Luna: Yeah, yeah, let’s do it.

Poppy: Okay.

Luna: Wish me luck.

Rj: Yeah, good luck.

Steffy: I don’t know what you’re suggesting. Okay, look, is hope my favorite person? Absolutely not. But if her line were bringing in the numbers like it used to be, then I would be telling carter to fund the hell out of it.

Carter: Ridge, your daughter’s proven herself. She’s a smart businesswoman. There’s a reason why she’s co-ceo of this company.

Ridge: And there’s a reason why you do what you do. You agree with this?

Carter: I don’t disagree.

Steffy: I wouldn’t think of cutting the line if it was as successful as it used to be. But it isn’T. And now that thomas is gone, I don’t think it ever will be again.

Hope: If he wants to go to battle with the logan’s, fine. Let her. She won’t win.

Brooke: Honey, do you really think that’s what this is about?

Hope: I mean, mom, she’s practically despised our family for, I don’t know, most of her life. It’s like stephanie passed it down to her with her name.

Katie: Hope isn’t wrong about that.

Brooke: Okay, so what do we do? How do we stop her?

Hope: Well, for starters, I don’t think we should be having this conversation here. I think we should be at forrester creations, in the trenches, not sitting on the sidelines and just letting steffy steamroll us all.

Katie: Well, she is ceo. She has authority.

Hope: Co-ceo. With ridge. Which… why am I even saying that? We don’t even need ridge. Mom, you have clout there. Everything you have done for that company, no really, you’ve taken a backseat there for far too long.

Katie: Hope could be right. Your contributions to forrester are legendary. They continue to pay huge dividends and to this day, and we were just talking to your mother about becoming more involved in the company. I mean, you used to have such a place of prominence.

Hope: Well, maybe it’s time. Maybe it’s time to reclaim your place at forrester creations. Reclaim your power. Katie and I will support you. And who knows? Maybe with us together working as a team, steffy won’t stand a chance. All of the things thatyou’re looking for in a pad, that is always discreet. Look at how it absorbs all the liquid. Oh my gosh! And locking it right on in. Look at that! Totally absorbed. I got to get some always discreet.

Katie: Oh, hey, rj.

Rj: Hey.

Katie: Nice to see a friendly face.

Rj: Hmm?

Katie: Oh, nothing, just sometimes it feels like there are teams around here. Uh, my sister and hope are looking for steffy. Do you know where she is?

Rj: Uh, steffy, um, yeah, she’s, uh, she’s across the hall.

Katie: Are you okay? Seems like your mind is elsewhere.

Rj: Yeah, you could say that.

Katie: Rj? What’s up?

Rj: I just– I walked in on luna and poppy earlier. You know who poppy is, it’s luna’s mom?

Katie: Yeah, we’ve met.

Rj: Right. Well, she had some huge news for luna. She’s been keeping it a secret, who luna’s father is.

Katie: Okay.

Rj: Well, the secret’s out. Um, turns out her father might be bill.

Katie: What?

Poppy: Bill?

Bill: Hi.

Luna: Hey.

Bill: So it looks like your mom gave you the news.

Luna: Yeah, she did.

Bill: I imagine you’re in a bit of shock right now. I know I am. I mean, this is so crazy, right? We were just talking about this not that long ago.

Luna: Yeah, and we both thought it was impossible, but now…

Bill: But now, it could be true. I might be your dad. How do you feel about that, luna?

Ridge: Steffy, I don’t ever wanna question your instincts as the ceo of this company. I love what you do. You’ve grown into this businesswoman, this– this person that can deal with the corporate world, and– and you’re good at it. You love it. I don’T. I– I just wanna get back to designing, that’s it.

Carter: Ridge, what are you saying?

Steffy: Are you thinking about stepping down?

Brooke: Oh, good. Just the people I wanna talk to.

Steffy: Ah, we’re in the middle of a very important meeting.

Brooke: Have you heard what your daughter’s up to? She wants to cancel hope for the future.

Ridge: We were just talking about that, yeah.

Brooke: A line that has a proven track record, has been very profitable for this company.

Steffy: Well, that was then. We’re talking about now.

Ridge: And we’ll see what tomorrow brings.

Hope: Well, I’m not going to let steffy kill hope for the future. Not without a fight. Missing out on the things you love because of asthma? Get back to better breathing with fasenra, an add-on treatment for eosinophilic asthma that is taken once every 8 weeks. Fasenra is not for sudden breathing problems or other eosinophilic conditions. Allergic reactions may occur. Don’t stop your asthma treatments without talking with your doctor. Tell your doctor if your asthma worsens. Headache and sore throat may occur. Tell your doctor if you have a parasitic infection. Step back out there with fasenra. Ask your doctor if it’s right for you. Want the power of 5 serum benefits in 1? Olay super serum activates on skin to hydrate, smooth, visibly firm, brighten, and improve texture. It’s my best skin yet. Olay my name is juanita segura, and I was diagnosed in november of 2014 with non-small cell lung cancer. Through just doing online activity, I found out about biomarker testing.

[Juanita segura] My fear was I wasn’t going to be here to see my children grow up. That gave me hope, knowing that I have that chance. Ask your doctor how comprehensive biomarker testing before treatment treatment may help you decide on the best treatment for you. Visit noonemissed dot org for more.

Steffy: Hope, I appreciate your passion for the line. It’s part of what made it so popular.

Brooke: So you admit, hope for the future is successful.

Steffy: Was successful. Fashion evolves, and so do we.

Brooke: Steffy, this has nothing to do with the company. This is about you and your vendetta against my daughter.

Steffy: Okay, I don’t know what hope told you, but this is not a personal attack.

Hope: Are you really going to stand there and say that with a straight face?

Steffy: It’s a business decision. Carter, tell her. Tell her about the numbers.

Carter: It’s true.

Hope: Well, in this moment, yes. The line is in a period of transition, and we all know why. Steffy got into thomas’ head and urged him to move out of the country.

Steffy: Okay, that’s not what happened. And honestly, if you believe you only need one designer for hope for the future and he’s not there–

Hope: Hope for the future has a strong, creative design team with or without thomas. And I am certain that we will bounce back.

Brooke: Yes, you will. I believe in you, honey. And your line. Ridge, it’s your turn to chime in here as co-ceo. Steffy says this isn’t personal, but we all know better. She is determined to take every bit of happiness from hope. Her relationship with thomas, her son, and now her line? Come on, this is ridiculous. This is going a little bit too far, don’t you think?

Steffy: Dad, please do not listen to brooke. She is being an overprotective mom, and she only cares about hope’s wants and needs. That’s not how it works around here. I think we need to talk about this. Hope for the future needs to come to an end. Today.

Rj: Listen, listen, I get it’s a shock for you for so many reasons, but it does kind of add up.

Katie: Oh yeah, oh yeah, it does, absolutely. I mean, poppy runs across this extremely rich guy that she hooked up with years ago, and suddenly he’s the father of her child.

Rj: Aunt katie, come on, you’re not saying…

Katie: Why hasn’t she come forward sooner?

Rj: I don’t know. She’s proud of being able to raise luna on her own and not needing the father’s help.

Katie: Well, I hope he’s at least smart enough to get confirmation.

Rj: Aunt katie though, if this is true, and bill is luna’s father, then your son just gained a sister.

Bill: If you have mixed feelings, I totally get that. I mean, I wouldn’t expect you to embrace the idea right away. But if I am lucky enough to be your dad, that would make me incredibly happy.

Luna: Um, I’ve wanted to know who my father is for a really long time, and it’s always been like this question mark hanging over my head for like all my life. And now for the first time, my mom’s given me a name, and it’s not just any name or any man. It’s– it’s a man that I can tell my mom loves, and a man that’s been nothing but good and kind to me.

Bill: I will continue to be that person no matter what we find out. That is my promise to you. But if it’s true, and I am lucky enough to be your dad, I promise you I will step up in every way. And I will be the best dad to you that I could possibly be.

Poppy: Well, we can find out right away. I picked this up on my way to see luna. Unless you’d rather wait and– and test at the hospital?

Bill: No, no, no, no. It makes some kind of public spectacle out of this. That’s the last thing I want. These tests are very reliable, and honestly, I don’t wanna wait any longer. Uh… luna, you deserve to know. Is that what you want?

Luna: Yes, definitely. The sooner the better. I wanna know. I– I’m praying that this test proves you’re my father.

Steffy: Here’s a look at what’s ahead…

Luna: Okay, let’s do it.

Li: Hold it right there.

Hope: The disrespect that you have continued to show my family is ridiculous.

Ridge: So, what do you say?

Steffy: Here’s a look

Steffy: Here’s a look at what’s ahead…

Luna: Okay, let’s do it.

Li: Hold it right there.

Hope: The disrespect that you have continued to show my family is ridiculous.

Ridge: So, what do you say? Will you help steffy and me lead this company forward.

Some Salemites ready to go nuclear on radioactive mayor? Lame play on words. Cliched, hackneyed, ugh. No offense, Everett, but the quality of the writing for The Spectator has really gone downhill the last couple of months. That is about to change, starting today. Lady Whistleblower will see to that. Gird your loins, Salem.

I think you better gird yours instead, Stark.

Sloane, you have got to stop calling. No contact, get it? Burner phone or no burner phone? Yeah, Wraith came by yesterday asking questions. But thank God for both of us, that poor sap is as clueless as ever. I gotta go. Yeah, just file a motion and tell the judge you can complain to me if he doesn’t like it. I had forgotten what of a crybaby my ADAs can be.

Well, not everyone can be you. Ah, right? Heavy lies the crown. Yep. Sorry to interrupt. Oh, no, don’t be silly. I was just telling that ADA how much I’m looking forward to working with you again. Oh, I’ll bet you were. So, uh, what can I do for you? Well, uh, just following up from yesterday. Still have some questions about how Sloane Peterson ended up with Nicole DiMera’s baby.

I’m so sorry you had to endure all that, little one. Stefan and Kristen can’t go on and on like a couple of prized idiots, can’t they? But, we mustn’t let them ruin a beautiful day, so how about we go for a walk and talk about your new name? Yay! Something befitting the family you now proudly represent.

Because biology be damned. I’m your daddy now, not Eric Brady. And your mommy will never know otherwise. It’ll be our little secret.

What secret?

We will all get through it, Roman. I’m just, mostly I’m worried about Eric. Yeah, no, I don’t think, uh, Judah will be traumatized. He’s, he’s so young still.

Well, look, if you, if you need anything, just please call me, okay? Thanks, you too.

Come in. Oh, Stephanie, hi. Come on in. Sorry to interrupt, Dr. Evans. Do you have a minute? I do. Come sit.

Jada and I touched base about staging the intervention you’d suggested. I, um, I just wanted to check in before going to see Everett. I’m so glad you both agreed to it. So am I. We’re both on board. Anxious to start. We’re on board. Split personality. It’s so crazy. You know that when you talk to Everett, that’s a word you don’t want to use.

Right. Of course, I know that. Uh, I just, I’m a bit, I’m a bit overwhelmed. That’s understandable. But as you’ve said before, it’s important to get Everett the help that he needs. And the good news is, Jade is on her way over.


Are you here? The front desk said you were

Good morning.

Something wrong?

Oh, I had the most terrible dream last night. The dream that I lost you. Lost me? That can never happen. You are my wife. You are Mrs. Bobby Stein. Now and forever.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. Oh my god, I am so

relieved. I thought we were over. Must have been some dream. It was. I dreamed that you had a split personality. Oh, is that right? So, which one of me was sexier? I’m serious. You kept calling yourself Everett and all this crazy stuff happened and it went on for months and months and it made absolutely no sense.

You know, I don’t even think I could explain it if I try. You don’t have to. You don’t have to. The dream is over. I’m here. Flesh and blood. A Bobby you love. And it goes without saying, there is no Everett. Everett? What the hell is going on here?

Look, it’s quite normal to feel Reluctant. Uncomfortable, if you’ve never been part of an intervention before. I admit, I am anxious. Yeah. And with Everett being so resistant, um, well, it’s going to take everything we have to help him go through this. Now, I know that, uh, I’ve told you I won’t be there as part of this.

I just think it’s much more important to, to have Him involved with people that he’s had a longstanding relationship with. Right. That makes sense. I’ll be close by. And if anything goes wrong, if you need me for anything, I can be there immediately. Sounds good. Thank you. Um, I also wanted to say, I’m so sorry.

Uncle Roman told me about what happened with Jude. Here. How is Eric doing? Never mind. Stupid question. I, I can’t imagine how heartbroken he must be. How much he must be missing that sweet little guy.

Oh, don’t mind us. We were having a father son chat. Oh, about? About what our son’s new name should be. What do you mean? You want to change his name? Eric and Sloan chose the name. Don’t you want to reserve that pleasure for ourselves? We are his parents, after all. I know. I mean, I kind of like Jude. Well, he’s used to it, anyway.

Okay. Nicole, he’s a baby. He’ll get used to his new name very quickly, I assure you. All right, I’ll sure add him in. You are his daddy. I am indeed. Now, our son and I were about to leave and go for a walk. I am determined to put my unexpected free time to good use bonding with my son here. And, I might be persuaded to pick up some delectables on the way back.

Any requests? That is so thoughtful. Um, surprise me. My favorite thing to do. Alright little man, let’s go. Choo, choo, choo. Say goodbye to mommy.

Have fun, you know? All right, let’s go.

Hello, Nicole.

Cheer, are you okay? Uh, yeah, definitely. I just, I had this weird dream that I’m trying to remember. You know how that can throw you off? Sorry, what are you doing here? I was hoping that we could talk. Okay, uh, hold that thought.

Hi, everyone. Steph, uh, Jada’s here too. Oh, okay. Hi, Jada. This is a surprise. Yeah. I’m sorry, am I, uh, am I supposed to believe that this is some sort of coincidence? No point, right? Okay, no games. We’re here because Dr. Evans suggested that we both talk to you. Oh my god. You gotta be kidding me. What, she just wants me to have more therapy, and more therapy, and more therapy?

Like, yes, there are gaps in my memory, but it’s because I was in a car accident. You know she doesn’t believe that’s the cause. I’m sorry, just exactly how much did she tell you about me? You’re not her patient anymore. So? And it is pretty obvious that something very serious is going on with you. Unless throwing punches in bars is normal for Everett Lynch.

No, it’s not. Alright, but please, I, I, I had a few drinks, alright? Like, it was one night. You insisted that you were Bobby Stein. You made a pass at me. What? No, I didn’t. Yes, you did. First thing the next morning. Look, I know this is really confusing for you. Not being able to remember. But it was like you were too Very different people yesterday.

And that is when Dr. Evans said, She thinks you were dissociating. She thinks you have DID. Marlena.

Good morning, AJ. Uh, meeting at house call? Oh. Something like that. Hmm.

Good morning, you little charmer. Oh my goodness, you look just

Sorry. Um, I’m used to him being my grandson. I’m the one who’s sorry, Marlena.

Rafe, I explained this to you yesterday. You did, yeah. But the thing is, the more I thought about it The less your explanation made sense. Excuse me? You’re the attorney. You’re the attorney who arranged for the adoption, right? So how the hell did you not know that it never went through? You don’t think that Sloan was motivated to keep me in the dark?

So the adoption agency never got in touch with you? You were never involved in the handoff in any way after Sloan took over? Even after starting off as attorney of record. Really? Look at you. So fresh. No, no, no. Don’t cry. That’s his quiet cry. It’s okay. Well, I’ll leave you two to bond with your son. Thank you so much.

It’s my pleasure to Okay. Getting my free time back made me happy. Just like it would in this moment. Are we done, Commissioner? Why, Eric Brady, you are the last person I’d expect to be commenting on my loins. Not that I’m complaining. It’s about time you and I had another chat. Great, your place or mine?

It’s about Sloan. She told me everything. Uh, about? About Jude. Who you knew all along was E. J. Nicole’s son. What you used to blackmail her. Wait, she told you that? Yeah, right before she skipped town. So did you help her? Leo, do you know where she went? Do I? No, no, I have no idea where Sloane could be. You, you sick, disgusting, I was told you fled Salem.

Keep your distance. Oh, keep my distance? Really? Well, how long were you waiting there? Were you waiting for EJ to leave? Subs I’m not worried about EJ. You’re not worried about EJ. Well, you should be. And you should also be worried about me because, so help me, Sloan, if you come ten feet near my baby, I will kill you.

Okay, listen. I’m not here to see Jude. I came to see you, Nicole. There is something that you have to hear.

TID. Dr. Evans thinks that I have multiple personality disorder. She thinks, she thinks that you may have developed this as some sort of coping mechanism when you were a child. Oh. Because of the abuse that you suffered. Oh, okay. Don’t you see how this could make so much sense?

Does it, does it make sense? Uh, no. The short answer is no. It does not make any sense. Think about it. Why does Jada only remember you as Bobby, when I only know you as Everett? And you don’t remember cheating on me with Stephanie, because you weren’t even conscious of it. And you don’t remember your childhood, because you did everything in your power to bury those memories.

Or, or, or there’s uh, there’s another explanation. You know? One that makes actual sense. This does make sense. You have an alter ego. And he exists to protect you. Oh, okay. Thank you so much, Jada, for your armchair diagnosis. But I don’t need any protection. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Okay. I get that this can feel scary.

Overwhelming. But you’re keeping your past buried. Shh, shh, shh. Dr. Evans is confident. Shut up! Everett doesn’t need to know any of that. And I’m gonna make sure he never does.

You don’t have to apologize to me. We’re all victims here. And I know how much you both suffered and I’m so glad that you have been reunited with your son. Thank you, Marlena. I want to assure you that, um, he had an enormous amount of love the first six months of his life. I don’t doubt that for a minute.

I know you’re very good to your own children, and, um, that gives me comfort. And I know that you and Nicole will be amazing and loving parents to I love you. I will always love you. Marlena. I just wanted to say that you’ve been very gracious about all this. Thank you. Of course. Give my best to Nicole.

Why are you in such a hurry to get rid of me? You’re right, because I have nothing else better to do. Look, Melinda, I’ve got a job to do. Yesterday you said that you and I have to be on the same side, and I agree. You catch the criminals, I put them behind bars. But it is no wonder that your case clearance rate is so low.

Because you don’t start with motive first. I mean, truly, what would I have to gain by giving Nicole and EJ’s baby to Sloan? I mean, the risk alone to my career, my reputation, and the ever vengeful DiMeras. I mean, we’re talking madness. Now, you have known me a long time. Do I seem mad to you? Well, all right, I guess the detective in me just needed, uh, Tyler’s loose strings and a bow.

I’ll let you get back to work. Man, I’m


Wait, does Sloan have Jude? You poor thing, is that why you is where he belongs. When I learned the truth, I took him right to Nicole and EJ. Wow. How incredibly honorable of you. Yeah, but when the thing is, I got back to my place, there was no sign of Sloane. Well, that’s too bad. Look, if I knew where she was, I would tell you.

The hell you would! I would, Eric, I swear. Look, I can tell by the way you’re looking at me with your eyes all squinched up and your nostrils flaring that you think I’m this horrible, amoral creep. Because that’s exactly who you are. No, I am not. Look, I tried to do the right thing more than once. Yeah, right.

Look, at the, at the christening, I almost said something. Almost! Okay, look, I admit, I can be Leo the Cowardly Lion sometimes. But, I swear, Eric, on all that is holy. And no, I’m not a religious person, but I do have respect for the sacred that I have been trying, I really have, to be, to be brave and noble and honest.

You’ve got a noble bone in your body. That is very hurtful. You sat on a story. You kept from publishing it because you didn’t want to kill the goose that laid the golden egg. Yes, well that very apt idiom was given rise to, uh, if my preternaturally retentive memory serves, by one of Aesop’s fables referring to an unprofitable action motivated by Exactly.

So money’s all dried up, and there is no more Sloane. She’s gone. And you’re gonna start dealing with me now.

I thought I could just turn my back and walk away. But I realized I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I didn’t face you. Oh, that’s the only reason that you couldn’t live with yourself? Not to mention all the other awful, unforgivable things that you’ve done? At least let me try to explain. Now you stole my baby and you made me believe that he was dead!

You know what, Sloan? You want to be accountable? Bend the ear of the police commissioner with all your pathetic excuses, okay? In fact, I will call him for you. But just wait, please. Don’t you I am so sorry. Profoundly sorry. I regret all the pain that you’ve suffered. I do. But you need to hear, and no, I didn’t plan it.

Oh, well, why didn’t you just tell me that in the first place? So taking my baby was what? Just an impulse, a knee jerk reaction? Dimitri showed up at my doorstep with your son. I had just had a miscarriage. The adoption, I had counted on it falling through. I had hit bottom. And then, all of a sudden, A baby showed up at my, my, in my home.

It, it felt like it was fate. Fate? Fate? I’ll show you fate.

Eric, listen to me, please. The day I figured out what happened, the very day that I learned Nicole’s baby was still alive, I went right to EJ and Nicole’s to try and tell them. They wouldn’t listen to me. So you went to Sloan instead? You took our money to keep your mouth shut? I had just lost Dimitri. I had nothing left.

I was desperate. Selfish son of a Police! Help! Help! Please! Hey, Eric! What’s going on here? Go. Get out of my sight. Hey. I’m sorry I lost my control. Obviously. Yeah, well, I can’t say I blame you. I just Thought he might help lead me to Sloan, but turns out to be worthless. Yeah. Look, uh, I’m sorry that we haven’t come up with anything solid yet, but we’re not giving up.

I know. I also know that’s not gonna change anything finding her. It’s not gonna make me a father again.

I deserved that. Oh, you deserve more than that.

You know what, Sloan? When you and I were pregnant at the same time, and I didn’t know who the father was, I thought, Okay, this is going to be a very interesting journey. And then you missed Harry. And my heart went out to you. Because I know that pain. I know it so well. I lost Two babies before Jude.

But when he was born, it was a miracle. Have you? When that doctor told me that they cremated my son before I could hold him one last time, do you have any idea, any sense of what that was like? Because you don’t! You don’t! And because of your lies, I’ve missed six months of my son’s life! And I am not the only one who’s suffered.

Your husband. You’re, you’re wonderful. Husband who’s only wanted a child his entire life. One wish, one wish, Sloan. And when he finally got that wish, the child he thought was his was ripped from his hands. And mine. Oh my god! I love that child with all of my heart. Stop! The child doesn’t want or need you anymore.

You are never gonna see him again. Ever!

You know, when I thought Jude was my son,

you made me out to be a lunatic. And when I stole him, when I stole him from the Horton Town Square that day because you negligently left him alone, you made me grovel for forgiveness. What kind of person sinks that low, Sloan? I don’t know. Maybe a person like you, Nicole. What kind of person? Didn’t you do the exact same thing?

Bobby? Jada. I am so glad you stopped by. You have no idea how much I missed you. Bobby, what are you doing? Ah, you’re my wife. Come on, baby. You’re my wife. We are divorced. Oh, no. No, we’re not. We’re not divorced. We’re not divorced. You signed the papers. Actually, I think it was Everett who signed the papers.

Yeah, that was Everett. I’m no lawyer, but I’m pretty sure that makes them invalid, right? Why would you want to be married to me? Why would I want to be married to you? Oh, come on. You know the answer to that. Because we were so, so, so good together. Good? Our marriage fell apart. And then you bought a ring for Stephanie.

Oh no, that was Everett. Everett bought the ring for Stephanie. Sorry, but uh, spoiled princess thing isn’t really my vibe. No offense. None taken. But what we had, that was special. Yeah. That was real. Are you serious?

Are you even real? You are just a part of someone’s psyche. Am I even real? I’m standing right in front of you. What kind of a question is that? What kind of a conversation is this? This conversation is pointless. Everett. Everett’s not here! You know what? I want you both to get out. I said get out. I SAID GET OUT!

I’m sorry, man. I know that nothing is gonna bring Jude back to you. It may not feel this way right now, but I do think bringing Sloane in will help. I’m sure leads are hard to come by. Yeah. Yeah, I just, um, questioned Linda Trask, which unfortunately was a dead end. I mean, it It’s crazy to me that she was not involved in the handoff of the baby, which she swears she wasn’t.

I don’t see any motive there. What did you just say? I said I don’t see any motive there. No, before that. That she wasn’t involved in the handoff of the baby. No, she said Sloan cut her out of the loop before it all happened. No, she didn’t. That wasn’t even close. Melinda’s the one who handed off Jude at the door.

What? God, why haven’t I even seen this sooner? Eric! I mean, I was just, I was overwhelmed. Eric, Eric, this is it! This is it. This means that Trask knew all along that she knew that Jude was Nicole’s baby.

I am never going to get any work done, am I? I just ran into Eric Brady, who told me that Sloan confessed everything that hit the Yellow Brick Road to Nowheresville. Not everything requires a Wizard of Oz. And not everything requires a snark, Elphaba. Elphaba? Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, played brilliantly by Margaret Hamilton.

Oh, for God’s sake! Look, Leo, I already heard all about it from Rafe when he came around asking questions. Well, he’s definitely gonna have questions for me. Everybody knows I blackmailed her. Your problem, not mine. Come on, you are the DA. When they come for me, I need to know you’re gonna have my back. Deep breath, Leo.

I just got Rafe to take his snooping around elsewhere. I am more than capable of getting him to pursue juicier avenues than you. Avenues? Honey, I am a full fledged boulevard and as juicy as they come, I’ve also been told I’m quite scrumptious. Right. I didn’t mean to insult you, Leo. The point I’m trying to make is to get you to calm down.

Because the only person that can truly prove that you were blackmailing Sloane is Sloane. And she is long gone.

You don’t think I’m caught up to speed on the Salem history, Nicole? Oh girls, you better get to work. Get out of my house. Oh no, Aaron told me all your gory details about what you did to his twin sister, Sammy. Yeah, obviously you were as desperate as I was. But maybe, maybe, you could extend the same grace that you were once extended.

And just let me What, get away with it? No, never, Sloane, never!

We’re not going anywhere, Everett. Jada and I are here for you. I said, I do not Get out!

Please get out. Oh,

here he is here. Fantastic, Dr. Evans. Come right in, please join the circus. Isn’t this fantastic? Let me guess, you’re to scoop me up and deposit me to the loony bin. You have a, you have an illness that needs treatment, Everett. Bobby? It’s Bobby. Okay, Bobby, the good news is you can be helped. Oh, thank you so much.

Thank you so much, but I’m fine. Everett’s not fine. Everett is fine! Everett is fine. I will make sure that Everett is fine.

There are ugly things from Everett’s past that the three of you cannot even begin to imagine. Things that he does not need to face again. So get it through your heads. He doesn’t want your help. He doesn’t need your help. He has me! So you admit that you’re keeping things from him. Your words. Why do you get to decide whatever it can or cannot handle?

Because I do. That’s why. I forget. Did I, did I ask you to leave? I think I did. Evan, I know you’re in there. And I believe that you do want to deal with your past. That’s how you can move forward. That’s why you went to Dr. Evans in the first place.

You know she’s right. Everett, I will be there for you every step of the way. Don’t listen to her. Don’t listen to her. Don’t listen to her. Don’t listen to her. Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! My head.

Lay still. Lay still. You’re gonna be alright. I know what you wanna do to me. You’re Now you’re never gonna see Everett again. Never. Ever. Never. Your blood pressure is highly elevated. You need to get treatment. Now if you won’t do it for, for yourself, then do it for Everett. Please.


I’ll get you some water. This is, this is good news, right? Are you okay? He, he was so adamant. What if I never see the real Everett again?

Oh, for heaven’s sake, what now? You lied to me with the MDA. Oh, and you know this to be true because? I got proof. That you told me to go catch criminals, that’s exactly what I’m doing. You’re under arrest. Stand up. Hands behind your back.

My main man, Jude. Hey, hey, hey, keep your voice down, would you? He’s napping. We’re also changing his name. What? Jude is such a great name. We’re changing it. Alright, you don’t have to get snippy. Well, baby boy DeMiro, you cute little thing. I am so glad you are back where you belong. And I am so glad I ran into you and your snooty daddy.

Oh, are you? I am. See, now that the switcheroo is I thought that you and I could clarify the terms of our agreement. Obviously, I don’t have to keep my mouth shut about what I know anymore. But I do get to keep the cash, right? Think of it as free money? Nothing in this life is free, Leo. Spoken like a true cynic.

I can be cynical, too, when I put my usually Pollyanna, cockeyed, optimist mind to it. What the hell are you blathering on about? Well, I’ve been thinking. Always a dangerous endeavor, I know. But in this case, I think thinking is the way to go. And I think ending this conversation is the way to go. Are you sure you don’t want to hear what I have to say?

That might change your often condescending and insulting behavior toward me. It might even cause you to Suck up to me and lick my boots. What are you talking about? Speak English, would you, Leo? I’ve been thinking that there must be a part of this baby switch story that isn’t public knowledge. Meaning what?

Meaning, why would you pay me not to tell anyone, not even your own wife, that you had a kid? It doesn’t make any sense. And why wouldn’t you want that kid back as soon as you found out the truth about him?

Yes, now we really get down to brass tacks, huh? Wow, all this endless dribble about how you’re risking your, your freedom. And you can’t live with yourself and you have to come here to explain and to apologize. Well that’s just a big lie. Lie. Because you don’t want to live on the run. And you think I’m stupid enough to buy your BS so that you can avoid it?

But you know what? You’re lucky, honey. You don’t have to disappear. That’s what Statesville’s for. And they would be thrilled to welcome you for an extended stay, I’m sure. You hypocrite. You call me what you want. I’m calling the cops.

Previously on The Way Home When a new family member was born, they would add the name to the list. And when he died, they would write down the date, close the book, and move on. Wherever we end up, let’s promise to meet at the Roxy on this date. A certain wayward son, you decided not to show up. I needed to be held!

I needed to be kissed! I’ve been waiting for Jacob to walk 20 years and he’s not coming home. What if I could just talk to him? You’ll warn him somehow. Yeah.

I’m so sorry. Hi. Haven’t you been working long enough? Um.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Summer: I’ve heard, um, some buzz about a deal between jabot and jasper foley, is that confirmed?

Kyle: Uh, the details are still being ironed out, but it’s in the works.

Summer: That’s major, he’s a legend.

Kyle: It will be a significant asset. The licensing of his products is in our best interest.

Summer: Yeah, of course, nobody could think otherwise.

Kyle: Well, you may be surprised.

Summer: What does that mean?

Kyle: They haven’t called.

Summer: What?

Kyle: Claire and harrison haven’t called because everything’s fine, so don’t worry.

Summer: I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m checking my phone for work messages.

Kyle: Hmm, right.

Summer: It’s her, it’s claire. Something’s obviously wrong.

Jack: Hi.

Nikki: Oh, jack. Thank you for meeting me on such short notice.

Jack: I’m sorry I didn’t respond to your text right away. I was in the middle of something.

Nikki: Oh, I hope I didn’t take you away from something important at jabot.

Jack: No, no, no. It was personal, nothing business. It’s all been settled now.

Nikki: I can read you better than you think. What’s going on?

Victor: Hello, diane.

Diane: Victor, what a surprise.

Victor: Were you trying to hide from me?


Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Kyle: Don’t panic. Claire sent a photo.

Summer: It’s harrison with the caterpillars.

Kyle: He wanted her to tell us they’re still, quote, “munching along”.

Summer: Look at the way that he’s pointing at them.

Kyle: Like one of the price is right models. You feel better?

Summer: I’m just so glad that harrison’s okay. After everything that he’s been through, he’s still himself.

Kyle: He’s resilient. Thank god for that. It’s amazing how just a picture of him can turn my whole day around.

Summer: I know, right? I didn’t even know what that was like before harrison came along.

Kyle: Yeah, so, clearly, he and claire are having fun. So, we can stop worrying.

Summer: It was nice of her to message us.

Kyle: Does this mean you’ve changed your mind about claire? Do you feel better about claire being harrison’s nanny?

Claire: There were so many. That was so cool.

Harrison: I know. Did they like it?

Claire: Yeah, I think your parents really appreciated the update. That was so thoughtful. Hey, you know, we could start a log to keep track of the caterpillar’s progress.

Harrison: Have you ever seen a caterpillar turn into a butterfly?

Claire: In fact, I have. There were caterpillars in the backyard where I grew up, and I watched them build their cocoons. And then, I waited. And I waited.

Harrison: Waiting is hard.

Claire: You’re telling me. I was worried the day was never gonna come or that I would miss it. And then one day, I was sitting outside when I had just about given up, and I heard crunch, crunch, crunch. So, I turned around, and then I saw it. A butterfly made its way out, and then took off flying through the sky.

Harrison: Wow!

Claire: Yeah, it’s pretty cool, isn’t it? I mean, they start out just crawling around, and then they go to sleep for a really long time. And then, one day, they’ve grown wings, and they can fly. It’s a metamorphosis.

Harrison: A meta-what?

Claire: Metamorphosis. It means change. I feel really hopeful when I see something like that. You know, you start off as one thing, and then you become something else.

Harrison: You’re so lucky. Daddy said I have to be patient.

Claire: Well, good things come to those who wait. Or so I’ve been told.

Harrison: I hope it happens. Then we can see the butterflies together.

Claire: Yeah!

Jack: First, tell me why you reached out. What’s going on? Did you feel the urge to drink?

Nikki: Oh, no, no. Just the opposite. I was calling to share some news with you, but it starts off bad.

Jack: Okay, I’ll brace myself.

Nikki: Jordan has been found. Alive.

Jack: Wait, she survived the fall into the river? She can’t be in very good shape. Please tell me she hasn’t hurt anyone else.

Nikki: No, no. She’s in custody, locked up in a maximum security.

Jack: Good. How are you dealing with that news?

Nikki: Well, it was quite a shock. I would rather she be gone for good.

Jack: Yeah, given what she did to harrison and claire, that makes two of us.

Nikki: The last time I got news like this, it drove me straight to the bottle. But this time, I didn’t feel the need.

Jack: So what do you think was different this time?

Nikki: Well, I had my outpatient session earlier, and I shared at a meeting. I’m just feeling more grounded than I have been.

Jack: Wonderful. It’s real progress. Thank you for sharing that progress with me.

Nikki: I put a lot on you. I thought it would be nice for you to hear something good for a change.

Jack: I’m very proud of you.

Nikki: So, at this moment, I am stable enough to hear what you clearly don’t wanna tell me.

Jack: When you asked for my help earlier, I immediately, automatically said yes.

Nikki: This is about you being my sponsor?

Jack: Yes. I’ve given that idea some more thought.

Nikki: Because of the lengths you went to save me that night, I completely understand. Are you trying to tell me that you can no longer be my sponsor?

Victor: Your husband put my wife in danger. He, um… spent the night with her. In her hotel room, he got drugged up and she got sloshed. What’s your opinion about that?

Diane: Well, it was– it was a complicated night, but jack ended up in more danger than nikki. I mean, he passed out. She didn’T.

Victor: So he told you about all that?

Diane: Yes, we don’t keep secrets.

Victor: So you knew where he was all night, and you knew that he took pills and acted like an idiot?

Diane: Jack had his reasons. He– he wanted to get nikki to go to rehab.

Victor: He could’ve killed them both.

Diane: Victor, he did what he thought was best in the moment.

Victor: Let’s recapitulate this. Your husband spends all night with my wife in a hotel suite. He takes pills, gets all hopped up, she is sloshed. And you don’t think that’s a betrayal? Uhhh.

Summer: Don’t push me.

Kyle: That’s not what I’m doing.

Summer: You are. I– I just saw an adorable photo of our son. You are taking advantage of my warm and fuzzy mood.

Kyle: Okay, forget I said anything.

Summer: Look, yes. Fine. I would like to let go of my mistrust of claire. But it takes time.

Kyle: I see you’re trying. I appreciate it. I know it’s hard for you.

Summer: I know it’s not all about me. After harrison’s kidnapping, he deserves to be around somebody that makes him feel safe and secure. And who makes him smile. And claire does that.

Kyle: And if you have doubts, just take a look at this happy kid.

Summer: Okay. I will try to embrace your certainty. Just give me a little breathing room, okay?

Kyle: Will do.

Summer: Gosh. All right, now that we have proof that our son is okay, should we maybe stop slacking off and head to work?

Kyle: Do we have to?

Summer: Is there something that you’re avoiding at the office? Wait, whatever happened between you and your mom, did you smooth all of that over?

Kyle: Definitely not. It’s bad. It’s tense. Awkward. She thinks I’m undermining her.

Summer: Are you?

Kyle: My skill set is stronger than hers. I one-up her without even trying. If she was actually on top of everything, this wouldn’t happen.

Summer: I don’t disagree with you. Look, as long as you’re not making underhanded moves behind her back, you should be fine. Kyle? Are you? What have you done?

Diane: Jack was in that hotel suite to stop your wife from drinking. He wanted to do whatever it took to get nikki sober.

Victor: He could’ve killed my wife. All because of his desperate need to act like a hero.

Diane: Well, it was a calculated move on jack’s part. I– I think what he did was selfless.

Victor: You really believe that? You’re trying to convince yourself. If I were you, diane. I’d take a very close and cold and hard look at the man you married to before he ruins your future.

Jack: Believe me, I do not take this decision lightly. I wish I could stay on as your sponsor, but I have to accept that this impacts you and my family.

Nikki: Of course. Family first. Kyle and diane need to know that you’re safe.

Jack: Diane was terrified by what I did. Not just staying out all night, but finding out I was with you and that I overdosed.

Nikki: I’m surprised she’s still speaking to me.

Jack: No, she’s happy that you found help. She is devastated by my choices.

Nikki: It was awful for me to see you like that. I’m sure it was equally devastating for her to hear about it.

Jack: She thinks it’s gonna happen again, and I tried to reassure her, but as you know, we addicts cannot guarantee anything.

Nikki: True. Now, jack, I just wanna ask you one more time. Please be honest. Have you really not been tempted to take any pills since that night?

Jack: I will admit it was a heady experience. But no, I have not had another pill. I’ve gone to meetings. I’ve gotten in touch with myself. I’ve tried to be as honest with myself as I can be, and…

Nikki: And what do you find?

Jack: I don’t wanna take that risk again. I’ve got too much to lose.

Nikki: Well, I’m glad you have your priorities straight. I did not, until you snapped me out of my self-pity and self-hatred.

Jack: Yeah, I knew that wasn’t you in the moment. I knew that was your addiction talking.

Nikki: You risked your sobriety and life to save mine, and I will be forever indebted to you. My god, what does it say about me that I would do it all again in a heartbeat?

Nikki: And that is why you can’t be my sponsor. It’s not fair to you or your family or diane. Funny, there was a time I would’ve been happy to cause some trouble for her.

Jack: Yeah, I remember it well.

Nikki: But to be honest, I owe her a debt of gratitude also. I mean, she let you be my sponsor, and she was surprisingly accepting. Please don’t feel guilty about this. I will find another sponsor. And you will always remain my dearest friend. Slowing my cancer from growing

Kyle: Jasper foley agreement. My mother was the person who worked on it initially.

Summer: And then what happened?

Kyle: I closed the deal without her input, and when she found out about it, she told me not to finalize it.

Summer: Because you went behind her back.

Kyle: It’s a good deal. It’s fiscally responsible. The only reason it hasn’t progressed is because of her fragile ego.

Summer: Kyle, I know you don’t wanna hear this, but your mom is technically your boss. If you did that with any other superior…

Kyle: No, I get it. I get it. I just hoped that she would see that I was doing what was best for the company, that I’m capable of more.

Summer: Look, I know that jabot is your world. I’ve seen how much time and energy and effort you’ve poured into its success. Jack should see that. So should diane.

Kyle: I just hope she doesn’t destroy the deal because she’s upset with me. Who knows what she’ll do.

Summer: Your mother is unpredictable.

Kyle: You have anything else you wanna add to the subject?

Summer: You know how I feel about your mom. She abandoned you as a child and repeatedly put herself first. As a mom, that makes me angry. And as someone who still cares about you, I don’t like it at all.

Kyle: Thanks for that. I appreciate the support.

Summer: You know, it’s ironic.

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: A lot of the issues in our marriage were because of my distrust of diane. And now you’re feeling the way that I did.

Kyle: I love my mom. But I’m starting to see things about her differently.

Summer: Just be careful. Don’t lose sight of your ultimate goal.

Kyle: Thanks for the advice.

Summer: Thanks for not pushing me about claire.

Kyle: We have a pretty good kid, don’t we?

Summer: He’s the best.

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: And he’s gonna be okay.

Kyle: Yeah, we’ll make sure of it.

Jack: Even if I’m not your sponsor, we could still go to meetings together.

Nikki: I would like that.

Jack: Promise me you’ll stay in contact.

Nikki: You do the same.

Jack: Yeah. Well, if there’s any upside to this, victor will be happy.

Nikki: I have a confession to make. I didn’t tell him that I asked you to be my sponsor again.

Jack: Gee, I wonder why.

Nikki: Oh, he would’ve come around.

Jack: About you, maybe. Not me. No, when you went away to rehab, he came to visit and he was out for blood. No, he warned me in no uncertain terms to stay away from you.

Nikki: I’m sure he’s calmed down since then.

Jack: About me, I don’t think so. No, he hasn’t forgiven me. I think he’s gonna hold this against me for a long time.

Nikki: Well, that would be wrong of him. Our spouses may not understand what we lived through that night. But we do.

Victor: There was a time when you and I were on the same side, right?

Diane: Yes, we were. But our marriage ended when you left me for nikki.

Victor: I used to admire you. You know, you were tough, you were savvy. Took no bull, you were a survivor.

Diane: And yet when i returned to town alive, a lot of people weren’t pleased, including you.

Victor: Because no one understood, including me, why you turned to jack abbott. He’s weak. You, on the other hand, are a viper.

Diane: Well, there’s the victor that I know.

Victor: So you allowed jack to defang you. He took power away from you. And your son is in the process of doing the same. I used to admire you, respect you. Now I pity you.

Michael: I’m sorry I’m late. I was getting a status update on jordan. All good.

Victor: I have no time for this, okay?

Michael: When you said that you wanted to meet, I was hoping we could, uh, grab a drink, clear the air.

Victor: There’s no need.

Michael: Victor, I know you’re displeased about how things turned out with jordan, that cole and I stepped in and undercut your plans, but–

Victor: Let me tell you something, michael baldwin. You betrayed me. You’re fired.

Michael: Seems I’m out of a job. Wanna buy me a drink? Looking for a smarter way to mop?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Sally: Summer, hi.

Summer: Sally.

Sally: Getting some fresh air?

Summer: Yeah. I mean, it’s a beautiful day, right? I guess the traveling carnival’s not here anymore. Did you get a chance to go to that?

Sally: No. No. Been there, done that. Did you take harrison?

Summer: He– he loved it. He loved the rides, the candy.

Sally: Yeah, I bet connor would’ve loved it, too.

Summer: I’m sorry he wasn’t here for it. I hope that chelsea and adam’s visit with him goes well.

Sally: Yeah, me too. I mean, you know, they’ve all had a really rough time with it, and adam’s been a wreck. But, you know, he just– is doing his best to be there for connor.

Summer: I’m sure adam leans on you a lot.

Sally: Yeah, but, you know, I want to be there for him, so…

Summer: It can be hard to be the supportive one. Though I don’t imagine being adam’s girlfriend is very easy.

Sally: We have had our challenges, but we are great. And right now, connor comes first. And I support that completely. You know, he adores connor, and I just wanna do what I can to, you know, get him through this.

Summer: That’s very mature of you. And perceptive.

Sally: Two things you normally don’t associate with me.

Summer: Look, I have reason to doubt your sincerity.

Sally: Can’t argue with that.

Summer: Sally, look, I assume you’re aware that chelsea suggested you take over for her at marchetti while she’s on leave?

Sally: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I am.

Summer: Look, from a business standpoint, it does make sense. You’ve got the fashion experience, you have knowledge of the brand.

Sally: But the fact that it’s me, that’s the sticking point, right?

Summer: You and i working together? Yeah, it’s kind of hard to imagine how that would go. But look, I do think it warrants a discussion.

Sally: Yeah, yeah, okay, let’s– let’s talk.

Diane: Here’s to being schooled by victor newman.

Michael: I’d say being bludgeoned with a hammer would be a more accurate description.

Diane: So, what did you do for him to be so angry at you?

Michael: Well, I can’t exactly get into details. Let’s just say I disobeyed orders.

Diane: Wow, it must’ve been some orders. Pretty bad for him to fire you.

Michael: This isn’t the first time I’ve been fired by victor newman. And I don’t anticipate that it will be the last.

Diane: I mean, what is the deal with that guy? Why does he wield so much control? Why is whatever victor says considered gold?

Michael: You two were having a very intense conversation when I walked in. Leave an impact?

Diane: I just hate that he gets to me. I mean, I should know better.

Michael: Let me guess. He did that victor thing where he says something horribly disparaging that somehow rings true.

Diane: Yes. He wanted to talk to me because he is angry at jack for just something that he did to try to help nikki.

Michael: What, as her sponsor?

Diane: Yes. He says that what jack did was reckless and dangerous and he blames jack for putting nikki at risk.

Michael: And how did you see it? This thing jack did.

Diane: Same way victor does. Of course, I couldn’t admit that. But I– I find myself siding with victor on this.

Kyle: Sorry to interrupt. Just wanted to check on how it’s going.

Harrison: Oh, hey, dad.

Nikki: Hey, big guy. Victor. I didn’t expect to see you here.

Victor: How are you doing? I’m alright.

Claire: You know what? Harrison, why don’t we, uh, why don’t we go play?

Victor: Now harrison, you better come back down again because I’m a cookie monster. I’m gonna eat all of them.

Claire: Let’s go.

Harrison: We have to come back.

Claire: Yeah, we will.

Kyle: Well.

Victor: These are good.

Kyle: I take it you are here for the cookies.

Victor: Hmm.

Kyle: Maybe a little something more?

Victor: I came by to deliver some news about jordan.

Kyle: Did they find her body?

Victor: My security team found her on the banks of the garewood river. She was still alive. And they put her into custody.

Kyle: Um, well, we– we have to increase security here. And– and for harrison, look, jordan can’t get to him again.

Victor: Well, don’t worry about that, okay? I would make absolutely certain that does not happen.

Kyle: Look, with all due respect, I don’t wanna underestimate her. She’s gotten out before.

Victor: Not gonna get out now. She’s in a maximum security prison. And I will make absolutely certain that nothing will happen to harrison.

Kyle: Thank you. Now, may I ask, who else knows? Because I was just with summer, she clearly doesn’T. She’s going to be freaked out. Does claire know?

Victor: Well, claire was shocked when I told her. But, um, I intend to talk about this with summer later.

Kyle: Would you mind if I was the one who told her?

Victor: No, of course not. So kyle, how do you– how do you like working at jabot?

Kyle: Um, yeah, things are great, thanks.

Victor: Yeah? Aren’t you now working under both of your parents? How’s that going?

Kyle: Um, we’re, uh, making it work.

Victor: Oh, yeah? Must be hard to take orders from your mother. You should be in her position, you know that.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Michael: Jack took pills? Pills, after all these years. And he overdosed.

Diane: Emt’s were called.

Michael: Yeah, well, he’s taking one hell of a risk.

Diane: Yeah, I just– just don’t get it. Why he would gamble with his addiction like that, and his life.

Michael: Well, really, diane, you might not wanna be reminded of this, but… nikki and jack, they go way back. I mean, they have a long, long-standing relationship. And if one were to look at it through that lens, one might understand why he would go to such an extreme for her.

Diane: Well, that doesn’t sit well with victor.

Michael: Nor with you, by the looks of it.

Diane: Yeah. I, uh, I told jack that if he was gonna be nikki’s sponsor again, that I would walk away from our marriage. And then he backed down.

Michael: Wow. That’s quite a bluff.

Diane: Yeah. I did what I needed to do. For myself, and for jack.

Michael: Would you have done it? Walked away from the marriage? From the man you’ve wanted all these years?

Diane: I can’t live in fear of another night like that. When– when he doesn’t come home. When– when the outcome could’ve been so much worse.

Michael: Well, you better be prepared.

Diane: For what?

Michael: I mean, jack may have changed his mind about sponsoring nikki. But, um… he may resent you for putting him in that position. Remember… they have a profound relationship.

Diane: All right, michael. Nikki might be jack’s friend. But I’m his wife. And I would like to think that his love for me is more than his concern for her.

Summer: Obviously, you and i have a very… complicated history when it comes to marchetti.

Sally: Yes, there is no excuse for what I did. Working with tara to blackmail you into leaving town. Although it did lead you to running marchetti, so…

Summer: It’s not easy for me to trust you.

Sally: I get it. Really. And I– I regret what I did. I’m so sorry.

Summer: And then there’s everything with my dad. How you chose adam over him. You really, really hurt him, sally.

Sally: Look, it makes sense why you wouldn’t want me to work at your company. But I’m not gonna apologize to you for my personal life, if that’s what you’re asking.

Summer: Okay, hang on. Look, you did push me out of jabot. But… I have to admit, I’m grateful for how everything worked out. I moved to italy. Kyle and I got married. I… became harrison’s stepmom.

Sally: So not all bad.

Summer: No. And being at marchetti gave me this opportunity to lead. And that has kept me grounded through a lot of changes in my life. Moving back home, everything with my mom and my marriage ending. This company is very important to me.

Sally: I get that. I’ve loved having my own companies to run.

Summer: But it doesn’t mean that I don’t want a life outside of that. And I do want the same thing for my employees. That’s why when chelsea came to me and asked for time off to be there for connor, of course I said yes. I really want marchetti to be a place where everybody’s needs are met, so that their talents can flourish.

Sally: I’m sorry, I’m probably sticking my foot in my mouth again. But that… seems different for you.

Summer: Well… I’m not the same person I was when you first met me.

Sally: Neither am I.

Summer: Look, I can’t just forget everything that you’ve done to me. And I wouldn’t expect anything less than your best behavior at marchetti.

Sally: And you shouldn’T.

Summer: Look, sally, I have been through hell lately, so I really don’t have the time or the energy to hold a grudge anymore. You have the credentials. I’m told you’re available.

Sally: Yeah, free as a bird.

Summer: If you want the job, on an interim basis, it’s yours.

Kyle: My father wanted my mother in the co-ceo position, and I respect his choice.

Victor: Er. Oh. Wouldn’t you wanna be in charge someday?

Kyle: Well, doesn’t everyone wanna move up?

Victor: Yeah. Well, kyle, I don’t blame you if you have visions of taking over the company. You know, of all the abbots I’ve known, you’re the closest to what john abbott was like. Calm, steady.

Kyle: Wow, that’s quite the compliment.

Victor: Don’t ever underestimate your own potential.

Kyle: I won’T. I promise you that.

Victor: Okay, bye. Nice to see you, kyle.

Kyle: Thanks for coming by, victor.

Victor: I’m sure you will take care of things.

Kyle: Yes, sir. I will.

Victor: You have a nice day.

Kyle: Yeah, you get home safe.

Claire: Harrison is worn out. We had a very busy day. You saw the caterpillars?

Kyle: Yes, I did.

Claire: Is everything all right? Did– did victor say something to upset you?

Diane: I just saw victor’s car pulling out of the driveway. What did he want?

Kyle: Uh, victor came by to tell me that they found jordan. She’s alive. But in custody.

Diane: Oh, my god. I can’t believe she survived.

Kyle: Um, victor said he already told you.

Claire: He did. He wanted to tell the family himself. He’s certain that we don’t need to worry about her anymore.

Diane: Well, I hope so. For everyone’s sake.

Kyle: Are you just coming from the office?

Diane: Oh, no, no. I had some, um, outside meetings. I– I haven’t been– I haven’t been in yet.

Kyle: Hmm, outside meetings? With who?

Diane: There it is again.

Kyle: What?

Diane: Oh, that judging tone of yours. What’s the problem, kyle? Are you looking for new ways to disparage my job performance? When migraine strikes,

Sally: I would be honored to be the interim creative director at marchetti. Thank you.

Summer: You’re welcome. Don’t let me down.

Sally: I won’T. I won’T. And I am ready to hit the ground running. Although, I– I really don’t wanna bother chelsea right now with any questions.

Summer: Agreed. I think that’s for the best.

Sally: Okay, so, um… if you don’t mind, I would really like to come by the office. You know, whenever works for you. To, you know, see where you’re at with the line, see what’s needed. Maybe speak to some of the staff. Is there a problem?

Summer: Um… no. Everything’s fine. Um, I actually… have some time right now. Should we get to work?

Nikki: Hello.

Victor: Hi, sweetheart. How did your session go?

Nikki: Very well. I feel strong and positive.

Victor: Uh-huh. Now, have you thought about a new sponsor? Can’t be jack abbott. He fell off the damn wagon.

Nikki: Actually, I did ask jack if he could continue as my sponsor.

Victor: I don’t get it. After what he put you through?

Nikki: Well, don’t worry. He turned me down.

Victor: Really?

Nikki: Yeah, I think it’s just been too taxing for him and diane. I can’t blame her. If I were in her shoes, I would probably feel the same way.

Victor: How could you even consider this?

Nikki: Jack has been a tremendous help to me as a friend and as a sponsor, and I will continue to rely on him.

Victor: No! You can’t go back to him. I don’t want you anywhere near that guy.

Claire: I’m gonna go check on harrison.

Kyle: You know, mom, why do you always assume the worst of me? I was just curious if you were having a meeting with the accounting team.

Diane: Sure you were.

Kyle: You know, I just wanna stay in the loop on top of things. Most companies would value that in their coo.

Diane: Well, most coo’s wouldn’t constantly be questioning their ceo. When is this gonna stop, kyle?

Jack: What’s going on here?

Diane: Nothing, nothing. Uh, did you talk to nikki?

Jack: I did. It’s done. I’m no longer nikki’s sponsor. So somebody wanna tell me what I just walked in on?

Kyle: There’s nothing. Nothing at all. Everything is fine.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless.

Mariah: All of this admiration for claire. Is there maybe something else going on?

Audra: This has nothing to do with vengeance. That’s your game and your weakness.

Tucker: What is it you want?

Audra: I want glissade. I want it all.

Ashley: Am I creating some kind of a psychosis? Am I delusional? What is happening?

Alan: No, I think it happened exactly as you say. It just didn’t happen with me. I believe you spent the evening with, uh… my brother.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Hey, jason. You free? ‘Cause I’d like to, uh, clear the air.

[ Siren wails ] Elizabeth. Hey. How are you? I am so sorry about your dad. And I’m sorry you and brook lynn couldn’t go on your honeymoon. It’s okay. There’ll be other opportunities to travel. I’m just glad we didn’t get on that plane. Yeah. You know, I didn’t know your dad for very long, but he really touched my life. And my boys were really fond of him. Cameron was sad to hear the news, but he sends his best. I know he was fond of your family. And he loved you, elizabeth. The feeling was mutual. If there’s anything I can do, any support I can offer, will you just tell me? Oh, well, in that case, uh, my dad named me executor. Do you know who I can talk to to get a couple copies of his death certificate? I need them for insurance, social security, and a couple other things. There’s so much red tape. Yeah. Normally, the funeral home can provide a copy of that. Right. I knew that. Um, I am so scattered right now. I’m sorry to bother you. Wait. Actually, you know what? The hospital’s record department should have it. You’re already here. Let’s figure this out. This is just absurd! They’re acting like I’m leading the charge to have heather’s conviction overthrown, to have her walk out of prison a free woman! All I have done is request copies of her records.

[ Sighs ] We could have a problem here. And I was well within my purview to do it, too. Not as the mayor. As a citizen. Because, for better or worse, heather gave me her power of attorney. We’ve got to find out who got their hands on this information and leaked it to the press. Curtis: I th ought I should bethe one to show you this. I’m glad you haven’t seen it yet. Portia: Wait a minute. She’s really going through with this? No. No, no, no. H-how could laura even think of letting heather webber walk free after everything that she has done? I thought jordan was overreacting when she spoke with aunt stella and trina about revisiting heather’s case. Honey, I’m just as shocked as you are to learn that they’re moving forward. But there’s got to be something more to this story because the laura I know would never do this. Fbi. Alright, brennan. Let’s go. Where’s your jumpsuit? Dry cleaners? Well, let’s hope we can find you another one. What you got on is gonna be a little drafty where you’re going. And that is? Back behind bars where you belong. You’re a dangerous prisoner. And a flight risk. And the sooner you’re back in pentonville… the safer we’ll all be. Carly! Hey, molly. Hi. Hey. Um, do you have a second to talk in private? Ohh. I’m so busy right now. I’m so sorry. Oh, please, please. It’s about what happened at brook lynn and chase’s wedding reception. I just — I need to know what happened with kristina.

Thank you. Okay. The records department will have your copies in 20 minutes. Oh. Thanks, elizabeth. This helps a lot. I was dreading having to track this down. It’s one thing I can check off my list. And if I’m being honest, it’s a pretty long list. You’ve got a lot going on. It seems that way, although maybe it’s because the reality of my dad’s death keeps hitting me in the face about every 30 seconds. It’s like I’m moving underwater… like everything is slower because — because I’m slower. Well, it’s good you recognize that. And if you can stand a little advice, just accept that what you’re going through is a lot. And don’t be afraid to ask for help. I just did. And you came through. Um, now that we have a little bit of time, can I talk to you about something else? Sure. Uh, it’s about finn. I thought you might ask. Uh, he was drinking when you showed up? He was. In retrospect, I may have handled that wrong. Finn wanted some time with violet, so instead of going straight from the airport to his place, we went back to the quartermaines’ first. But I-I didn’t want him to be alone, and I thought that violet could use the support, so I called you. Obviously it blindsided him when you walked in. Chase… finn… he’d already been drinking by the time I got there. Yes, I surprised him, but his reaction was his own. It had nothing to do with the timing, and it certainly wasn’t your fault for calling me. Finn realizes he was out of line, and I-it really shook him up — not just that he drank, but, you know, how it made him feel acting the way he did towards you. But he’s doing all the right things, okay? He’s going to the meetings. He’s doing the work. He told me. Finn is gonna be okay. He’s not gonna keep turning to alcohol. I wasn’t at chase and brook lynn’s wedding or their wedding reception. I was at home with my feet up. So I don’t really know what I could tell you. So you don’t know that sonny attacked dex? Look. This isn’t an official inquiry, carly. I’m not here as the A.D.A. And you’re not the first person I’ve spoken to. I talked to anna, off the record. But I don’t know what else I can tell you. You’re — you’re family. Carly! You were kristina’s stepmother for years and my aunt by marriage, which shows you just how convoluted our family ties are. But what I mean is… you’ve known me my whole life, and I’m asking you for help. I don’t know what I can tell you. I wasn’t there. But jason was. Jason tells you everything, right? Kristina witnessed an altercation, and she had a physical response, one that could impact the baby she’s carrying for tj and me. I would ask her myself, but I-I just… I can’t risk upsetting her right now. She’s too fragile. But I think I have a right as the mother of the baby she’s carrying to know what happened. As long as you understand that what I say stays between us. If you turn this into a statement for the D.A., I will have no recollection of his conversation whatsoever. Understood. I still can’t imagine laura taking this on. Well, I can. No, she is testing the waters on this, and this article is proof of that. This is another step on the road that ends with heather webber being released. [Scoffs] Okay. Honey, we’re not gonna let that happen. Alright? That’s what I’ve been trying to say. But, um, realistically… what can we do? If laura finds a lawyer to take heather’s case and a judge to reopen it? How are we gonna fight the whole justice system? Excuse me? Dr. Robinson? Yes. I need you to sign this patient’s outtake form. Oh. Just give me one second. You know what? Uh, I gotta go. And we’ll talk tonight. Yeah, you better believe it.

[ Sighs ] No. No, no, no. This — this isn’t right. Who ordered this? Since when does the fbi supervise prisoner transfers? Only when the prisoner was the head of the wsb and arrested for violations of the national security act. And I haven’t overlooked your involvement with pikeman or how you funneled money between pikeman and the bureau. You’re no garden-variety criminal, brennan. You’re a trained intelligence agent. You are dangerous by definition. You should be insulted if i didn’t show up to take you back to the pen. You know, it’s not unusual for the feds to feel inferior to the wsb. Don’t play into it. Dr. Robinson. Say goodbye to your patient. He’s leaving immediately. Agent cates, I hate to disappoint you, but this patient isn’t going anywhere. Uh, it’s been a while since you stopped by. Yeah. Yeah. I’m not gonna stay long. I just wanted to let you know that I reached an agreement with dex. I’m done with him. He’s free to do whatever he wants to do. He wants to be a cop. Doesn’t matter to me. I’m not gonna get in his way. That sounds like the right call. I want to make the same deal with you. How would that work? I want you to go work for the fbi, whatever it is that you’re doing. I don’t want to have anything more to do with you.

Finn was very apologetic and embarrassed for what happened, both for the drinking and just his behavior. He said that he was — he was in shock after finding your dad… but that talking to you really helped. Finn came home from dropping violet off from school, expecting to see my dad up and waiting for him. Instead, he found him dead. Finn is the one who had to call 911, who had to sign the paperwork, who had to watch our father — watch his body be taken away. If that bourbon wasn’t in the apartment, there is no way that he would have gone out to find a drink of alcohol. Chase, you don’t have to defend your brother. I understand the sequence of events. What I didn’t understand is his reaction to me. He was argumentative and angry with me for suggesting he go to a meeting, which he refused. And I know finn feels terrible about that. Violet was in the house. I feel terrible about that. I get it. Finn made bad choices, and he knows it. Look. We’re all pretty raw right now. I know I’m not at my best. All I’m saying is my brother screwed up. Nobody’s questioning that. But don’t you think, that given the situation, he merits a little understanding? Alright. Look. The first time I had heard that anything had happened is when jason called me to tell me that sonny went after dex and kristina witnessed it. Now, then jason asked me to come to the metro court for sonny. I never saw kristina, but I do know that sonny tracked her down first. Do you know what happened? I-I know that sonny was upset. He didn’t go into detail, but from what I understand, when jason was pulling sonny off of dex, they realized kristina saw the whole thing. She ran off. Sonny took off after her. He found her in a ladies’ room right off the ballroom, and he tried to explain to her what had happened, but kristina was really upset. He said she was hysterical and that she was afraid of him.

[ Scoffs ] Can you blame her? No. No. And I — I think that kristina was scared of sonny because she saw him act in a way that she had never seen before. I mean, kristina grew up hearing whispers about sonny being a mobster. I mean, I’m sure you heard it, too. Absolutely. And I just think that kristina told herself that, in sonny’s case, being a mobster in this day and age, it’s just somebody with some shady business practices. So witnessing the attack and then hearing sonny threaten to kill jason and dex… I mean, I’m sure that was devastating for kristina. Yeah. For the first time, she realized what they all mean by “mobster.” Sonny, we had this conversation months ago. My position hasn’t changed. Coffee business is half mine, and I’m not leaving. The offer to buy you out still stands. What’s your price? I’m not — I’m not selling. Did the fbi order you to stay here so you can keep tabs on me? I’m not selling because this is our business. We founded this company together as equal partners. The partnership was based on trust. That trust has been broken. You broke it. So I’m offering you a way out. If you’re smart, you’ll take it. I’m not staying for me. I’m staying for you. With all due respect, dr. Robinson, this man’s a security risk. He’s handcuffed to the bed, and he’s guarded around the clock. Look, I don’t have to like the patients that find themselves in this hospital, but I do have to provide them with the absolute best medical care possible. And his surgeon hasn’t cleared him to be released. I don’t think you realize who this man is. He’s a former intelligence agent, a national security risk, and well-trained in the art of disinformation, making things look like what they’re not. You’re playing right into his hands. You think this is a game for me? ‘Cause I’m certainly not playing it. Mr. Brennan was wounded severely and was bleeding excessively, and it required surgery. And he will not leave this bed until his surgeon says that he is okay to be released. Now, I’m not sending him back to prison so his wound can open up and he can bleed out. My decision stands. This patient stays right here. You were saying, agent cates? Donald. I have a favor to ask. Jordan ashford would like to come down and talk to you about a confidentiality concern that we have. Thank you. Yes. She’ll be down later this afternoon. Thanks. Bye-bye. Okay. Donald rollins — waiting for you in the records room. Here you go. Okay. Mm-hmm. I’ll check it out. I know you warned me that this might happen. And… I just want to say thank you for not saying “I told you so.” Well, I didn’t expect it to happen this fast, but I really think you should get ahead of the story — now. Issue a statement saying you have no intentions of reopening heather webber’s case and of trying to mitigate her sentence. I don’t want to paint myself into a corner, making a promise that I might not be able to keep. Yeah, but you don’t advocate for freeing heather, correct? Correct. Then draft a statement saying that.

[ Knock on door ] Come in! Hi, laura. Hi, curtis. What can I do for you? You mind if we talk for a minute?

Jordan. I am sorry ifI’m interrupting your meeting. Oh. No worries. We were just wrapping up. Curtis. You look wonderful. It’s so good to see you up and about. Thank you. Feels good to be up and about. Yeah. Well, um… I’ll get going on that project we were just discussing. I’ll be in touch. Yeah. Good to see you, curtis. Likewise. Okay. I think I might know why you’re here. Laura, a few months ago, around the time of heather’s initial diagnosis, portia was worried that you were looking into — into heather’s diagnosis, her case being reopened. I didn’t pay it too much concern at first because I didn’t think you would do that. Fast-forward to today, and I read an article in the invader that says just that. Please sit down. That article should never have gone to print. I agree… if it’s a lie. But I don’t hear you saying that it is. The headline is a lie. I am not looking to get heather freed. So you’re not examining the legal ramifications of her medical diagnosis? I am exploring whether or not there are any legal ramifications. And since I’m not a lawyer, I need to consult one. In order to do that, I needed to request copies of heather’s records from the time of her arrest through her sentencing. Curtis… I can’t predict how a judge will decide. I can’T. But I can tell you it’s my personal feeling that in light of heather’s recent diagnosis, she deserves to have her case reopened. You know, um, we are family. And I’ve seen the relationship between kristina and her father. She is truly a daddy’s girl. Yeah. And sonny loves her so much. But she was going to have to see sonny more realistically at some point. I’m sorry that it happened now. Yeah. I’m still trying t o figure outhow I feel about it all. I bet you are. What are you gonna do about it? Nothing. I think. Just gonna sit on it. I mean, I can’t tell tj. He would just go straight to kristina and confront her, which would only make things worse. So I will just sit on pins and needles and send up a silent prayer, hoping that kristina will be alright, that she will do the right thing — for herself and this baby. Everything else is out of my control. Wow. You already sound like a mom. You do! I mean, all those feelings you’re talking about. They’re always gonna be there. I don’t mean to scare you, but you’re gonna be afraid and you’re gonna be worried. That’s never gonna go away. And you’re gonna constantly be sending up those silent prayers, praying that your kids are happy and healthy, all the while knowing that it’s all out of your control. Kristina’s made of good stuff. I have a feeling that she and the baby… they’re gonna be just fine. Thank you, carly. I really appreciate you being honest with me. Okay.

[ Both chuckle ] I have to stay because corinthos coffee is your only legitimate business. It’s your only shield left against rico charges. Is that what your handlers told you to say just in case I try to push you out? Who do you think has been running the business while you were doing whatever you were doing? You pay no attention to this place. It was barely operational when I came back. I increased the inventory. I added some staff. I’m trying to build this business back up. Because it’s the best cover that you have. You’re not protecting me. You’re spying on me. I want you out of my business. Out of my life. I am your friend. I’m your friend for as long as I can remember. And I’m telling you right now… …you are in real trouble.

I know finn feels bad about his behavior, and I am sympathetic to what your family is going through. Maybe it’ll get easier. Or things will make more sense once the memorial is over. I keep telling myself that finn and i will start to feel closure. I hope you both find that. My dad wanted his ashes scattered. We’re planning a small gathering of those closest to him — just friends and family. I’d love it if you were there. Finn already told me. And of course I’ll be there. It’s been 20 minutes. Your copies should be ready. I’ll go get them. Oh, no, no, no. I’ve imposed enough. I can bypass the line. I’ll be right back. As the good doctor pointed out, I’m still recovering from surgery. I tire easily. Care to clear out and give me some rest? Since I can’t take you back to pentonville… …I’m just gonna have to question you here. Oh, you can ask all the questions you like. I have nothing more to say to you without my lawyers present, and they are

very busy people. Maybe it’s time for new lawyers. I mean, it isn’t it curious that you spend months behind bars without your case being brought to trial? What are you paying these people for? What’s the holdup? You’d have to ask the justice department. I have. It seems your lawyers are very busy asking for postponements, and their justifications are flimsy at best.

[ Chuckles ] Almost as if they’ve been given a directive to stall. You better watch that legal bill. It’s gonna be a doozy. Yeah, I-I told them to take their time because I wanted the full pentonville experience. My stay just wouldn’t be complete until I’ve been stabbed in the showers. Yeah, maybe I’ll tell them I’m ready for them to move things along now. Or maybe you’re waiting for something else to happen. Maybe you don’t want to leave… until the time is right. -Hey. -Hi. Thanks for stopping by. Couldn’t get away. Yeah. Here’s your phone. And yours. I promise. I will get a different-colored case. Bound to happen eventually. I’m just glad I wasn’t on call. Yeah, you didn’t miss anything important. Your gym membership is about to expire. Oh. I get many calls? Not really. I, uh… kind of expected to see some calls from kristina, but nothing. No. Yeah. I-I saw her at my mom’S. She okay? If you mean kristina, she seemed fine. If you mean my mom, she’s pretty sure she’s gonna lose her case. But she’s not that worried about it right now. I think, um, gregory chase’s death really put things in perspective for her. I, uh, called your office a little while ago. They said you were out? Yeah, I-I’ve been on the go. I just was, um… wrapping up a meeting at the metro court when you called, and I came straight here. So the paper was right. You do want to set heather free. No. I don’T. I am advocating to have her case reopened, taking into consideration that she was suffering from an undiagnosed illness at the time she committed those crimes. Even if it results in a lesser sentence?

[ Sighs ] Curtis… I-I know how upset you are about this, but really, at this point, this is all just speculation, okay? All I’ve done is ask for some records. There’s — no action has been taken yet. “Yet.” If I decide to go forward with anything, I will let you know first, okay? Trina’s family does deserve the truth. We deserve justice. I do understand that sentiment. Laura, it’s not just a sentiment! Imagine if it was your child that watched their friends and their mentors being stalked, attacked, and killed. Now imagine if it was your child who was the real target all along, that the killer was just waiting for an opportunity. Would you still be okay with “mitigating” the sentence, a-as the article put it? Or would you want that killer locked away in a super-max so they would never have the opportunity to hurt your child again? You attacked a police cadet at a wedding. You threatened to kill me and dex not 200 feet from your closest friends. And kristina saw the whole thing. She saw a side of you thatshe never even knew existed. Sonny, you’re making sloppy decisions. You’re not — you’re not thinking clearly. You’re not thinking things through. You have to rein it in. Please let me help you. I’m trying to be friendly. Just for the record… you’re turning me down. So I’m not gonna be friendly anymore. You don’t get out of my way… you’re done, you’re gone.

I can tell you this much. My lawyers aren’t stalling. They’re trying to make sense of the charges. Well, they’re pretty straightforward, actually. You’ve been charged with, among other things, criminal conspiracy and attempted murder. Just who did I try to kill? Carly spencer? Even she doesn’t believe that. Anna devane. And dante falconeri. When anna and the detective showed up — with their guns drawn, I might add — I wasn’t holding a weapon. I made no threatening moves whatsoever. Now, granted, there was a slight misunderstanding with ms. Spencer. I had neglected to tell her that I was the director of the wsb, and she mistakenly thought that she had to defend herself. Now, anna, on the other hand, she knew exactly what she was doing when she came through that door. That was a nice deflection.

[ Chuckles ] I was talking about the hit you put out on anna and dante at the pier. But let’s talk about anna’s involvement in your takedown. Very convenient, wasn’t it? Well, that’s not how I felt when she had a gun trained on me at point-blank range. And I happen to know from prior experience she’s an expert shot. Now, if this lackluster interrogation is over, I’m getting very tired. You and commissioner devane were at the wsb together in the ’80s, weren’t you? You know we were. So, what are the odds that when you get busted your old friend crashes through the door at the perfect moment to take you down? I’ll catch up with kristina later. It just seemed strange that she’d go radio silent. She’s in her final trimester. The baby’s due in august. It just stands to reason that we would want to know how our baby’s doing. Maybe go with her to her next doctor’s appointment. I could check with dr. Navarro. I-I wouldn’T. You know how kristina feels about boundaries. Molly, I understand boundaries, but I also understand that we are the baby’s parents. Yes. So we — I am so sorry to interrupt. Molly, I really need to speak with you as soon as you have a free moment, okay? Oh. No, no. Yeah, I-I’m free now. What’s up? Tj, would you mind giving us a moment? I’ve got rounds. Uh… see you at home, moll. What can I do for you? Have you seen the invader today? No. Um, I’ve been pretty busy today. Why? Well, laura collins is attempting to free heather webber, and I’m extremely concerned. I would just like to knowhow the D.A.’S office would plan to fight this. I understand completely how you feel. You want to protect trina, and you have every right. What about everybody else’s rights? Brando corbin. Rory cabrera. Britt westbourne. Those young people had a right to live. Heather killed those people. What about the survivors? Ava jerome. Diane miller. Have you once asked them how they feel about you reopening heather’s case? Heather does not deny her crimes. Okay? I am having a hard time locking this woman away for the rest of her life when she may not have possessed the — the mental capacity to tell the difference between right and wrong. Those people are dead still either way. I know that! But metallosis could have been the deciding factor there! Now, I think that should go — I think it must go in the record. And if it alters her sentence? That’s for the court to decide. Okay. What i can tell you is that no motion has been filed that I’m aware of. There’s no hearing scheduled. Whatever’s in this article, it’s pure speculation. Would your mother maybe know more? I doubt it. She’s been out of town the last few days, and she only just got back. She’s probably going to be livid this got published without her. It’s full of holes. But if a motion is filed, how are you gonna fight it? Heather’s attorney is probably going to argue that heather is not guilty because she lacked the mens rea to commit the crime — there was no way for heather to be in control of her actions because the cobalt poisoning was controlling her behavior. Therefore, she is not responsible for what she did. And if she’s no longer responsible and no longer a danger to others — no, that woman

is a danger to others. And don’t give me this technicality about the diagnosis of cobalt poisoning. Really, allowing this woman to walk free? I mean, isn’t it the D.A. Office’s duty to see that justice is done and to ensure that this woman remains behind bars? You owe her victims that much.

[ Carly laughs ] Carly: Sonny. Sonny! Hey! What are you doing here? Where are you going? Uh, I have business to attend to. Okay. Well… have you talked to kristina? Not today. Today I’m dealing with jason.

Sorry. That took longer than I thought. Here are 10 copies. Thank you, elizabeth. I really appreciate you going through all the trouble. Just glad I could help. You okay? It’s just so official. So formal and real. This is all that’s left of my dad. No.

You are what’s left. You and finn and violet. He loved you guys. He’s always gonna be with you. I haven’t seen any motions to reopen heather’s case, but I feel confident that, should that happen, the D.A.’S office can successfully argue against any mitigation of her sentence. Look, I want to believe you, molly, but I can’t just sit here and relax and hope that you take it from here. I am gonna fight against any type of release because I’ve learned the hard way that when it comes to heather webber anything is possible. Laura, this whole thing reeks of what happened to heather’s daughter. Esme was never held accountable for her actions because of her supposed amnesia. My daughter, trina, didn’t press charges against the “new” esme because esme wasn’t aware of what the “old” esme had done. So look at what we have now. What if some legal loophole puts heather back on the street? Do you want to open the door to that possibility? It is up to the court to decide.

[ Scoffs ] I still think it’s the fair thing to do. Life is not fair, laura! Certainly wasn’t fair to those young people who were murdered by a poisoned hook. Now, you know… you know I respect you and I consider you a good friend. But you’re wrong on this one. You’re wrong. And you’re leaving portia and me no choice but to fight you on it. And we will. You can trust and believe we will with everything we got.

[ Door closes ] I’m not sure I understand. Why are you bringing my prior relationship with anna into this? Maybe you and anna planned that bust. That’s interesting. Why? Maybe you were too conspicuous as the head of both pikeman and the wsb. But I’m not head of pikeman. Maybe that bust was a hand-off of power from you to anna. What’s her role in pikeman, anyhow? Oh, you’ll have to ask anna about that. Don’t worry. I will. Heal fast. He’s all yours. You were dealing with jason? What’s going on? Did you guys talk? I offered to buy him out of the coffee business, gave him a chance to walk away. He refused. So… what happens next is on him.

[ Knock on door ]

[ Knocking continues ]

Tucker: Audra? If you’re in there, please open up.

[ Audra sighs ]

Audra: What the hell are you doing here, tucker?

Tucker: I could ask you the same question, couldn’t I?

Alan: Thank you.

[ Alan exhales ]

Traci: Ashley, you okay?

Ashley: Yeah, it just feels strange to be back.

Traci: Strange how?

Ashley: I didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t sure if maybe one of my other personalities was here and did something to the apartment, but it does seem to be pretty much the same way as it was when I left it. Then again, I guess something could’ve happened and I just don’t have access to it, right?

Alan: Well, that’s what we’re here to find out. But just take our time, okay?

Traci: Look, it was a really long flight and I bet you spent most of it worrying. You must be exhausted.

Ashley: Yeah, I think I’ll go freshen up.

Alan: That’s a good idea.

Traci: Well, I– I think it’s going okay. Do you? I mean, she seems a little nervous, but that’s understandable in the circumstances.

Alan: Yeah, of course, she’d be on edge coming here, not knowing what to expect, but hopefully being in her own apartment will bring her some comfort and make it safe enough for her to unravel what happened.

Traci: It must be just terrifying to realize that you’ve got alternate personalities vying for control.

Alan: Yeah, and that’s clearly a shock she’s still processing.

Traci: But this is our ashley with us. I’m– I’m convinced that this is my sister here with us.

Alan: No, I agree. I saw no sign of any of the other personalities coming out.

Traci: So, what is your game plan? I mean, now that we’re all here, what do we do?

Ashley: We need to get out of here and fast before it’s too late.

Claire: It’s hard to decide. I’m starting a new job today and I want to take some treats to make a good impression. It’s for a kid, so you can’t go wrong with brownies, right? I’ll take three. Actually, sorry, hold on. He can’t eat those for breakfast. Maybe muffins? Um, no, muffins would be a huge disappointment. Brownies it is. He can have them after lunch.

Kyle: No, that’s it, buddy. Oh, straighten up a little bit. Just watch where you’re going. Oh, look at that boy riding a bike. He picked it up pretty quickly.

Summer: Maybe a little too quick– harrison, be careful.

Kyle: Well, today’s a big day for all of us.

Summer: Yeah, it’s a little nerve-wracking. At least it is for me.

Kyle: I’m really proud of you, summer.

Summer: I don’t need you to be proud of me, kyle. I need you to be right about claire.

Harrison: Mommy, daddy, look at me. I’m going fast.

Summer: Okay, maybe a little too fast, sweetie. Can you slow down?

Kyle: Good job, buddy. Okay, it’s time to come in and wash up for breakfast, okay?

Summer: Put your bike in the garage first.

Jack: Turns out that grandson of ours has some skills. He picked up that bicycle riding thing without a hitch.

Diane: Hmm. He amazes me every day. He can do anything he sets his mind to.

Jack: I think he got that from you.

Diane: Oh, I don’t know. There are some things I can’t do.

Jack: Like forgive me? Look, I know you’re still upset with me for agreeing to be nikki’s sponsor again, I–

Diane: That’s right, I am. And the more I think about it, the more upset I become.

Jack: Okay, well, we have to find a way past this. Could we at least talk about it some?

Diane: What more is there to say, jack? You know how I feel.

Jack: Yes, I know.

Diane: No! I’ve made a decision. I can’t take this anymore. I’m done. Ok, someone just did laundry…

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Jack: Wait, you say that like you’re done with us. Surely, you can’t mean that.

Diane: It does seem impossible, doesn’t it? After everything we’ve been through to end up in this sad place. You know, my– my return with your doubts and suspicions and then falling in love again so completely that we didn’t care what anyone else thought.

Jack: Yes, the kind of love that doesn’t just disappear.

Diane: No, it doesn’T. And that’s why this breaks my heart, but maybe this is what it has to come to.

Jack: All because I agreed to be nikki’s sponsor?

Diane: No, no, jack, it’s more than that. It’s that you don’t seem to care about my feelings in any of this.

Jack: You have always been supportive of my helping her.

Diane: Outwardly, yes. I have tried to understand why this is so important to you, but honestly, it’s been tearing me up inside and I just– I can’t do it anymore.

Jack: Wait, wait, wait. Can’t– can’t do what?

Diane: Oh, come on. Pretend that it doesn’t bother me when you run out at the drop of a hat just because nikki calls. I mean, you have made your priorities very clear over and over again.

Jack: You, our marriage, our family is my priority. Nikki’s going through a rough time.

Diane: Oh, god.

Jack: She’s depending on me and I think I can help her.

Diane: Really? Like you helped her last time when you almost od’d trying to help her?

Jack: No, I realize I went too far. I have promised you that’s not going to happen again.

Diane: Well, I don’t think that’s a promise you can keep, especially since you have agreed to be her sponsor again.

Jack: When I commit to doing something, you can count on me. You know that.

Diane: Jack, you made a decision in that moment to put nikki above everything, including your own life. And– and that kind of instinct comes from deep inside you and it’s not something that can be promised away.

Jack: What can I say to make you believe me? I swear nothing like that will ever happen again.

Diane: You swore that you wouldn’t be tempted to use the first time you agreed to be nikki’s sponsor and you did.

Jack: That was different. This wasn’t out of temptation or craving.

Diane: It doesn’t matter why you did it, jack. You used. And how do you know you’re not going to do it again?

Jack: Because I know myself.

Diane: Oh, really? Do you? You told me before that an addict will use any excuse to use. What if on some deeper level, watching nikki give into her addiction made you want to give into yours? To feel that high again?

Audra: What are you doing here?

Tucker: You should check your email ’cause I just sent you some legal documents. It’s a– an order to cease and desist on any and all glissade interactions.

Audra: Look, I’m sorry, tucker, but you don’t get to decide who I can and can’t speak to. And I don’t care what your legal papers say.

Tucker: What makes you think that you can meet on your own with the heads of the companies I acquired for my company.

Audra: What I do and who I choose to do it with is my business.

Tucker: Yeah, and glissade is mine. You think you can just waltz in here and rip it out from under me?

Audra: Sorry, tucker, but i don’t owe you any explanations. What I’m doing in paris is my business. Now, you can just leave and get the hell out of my room. Go back to genoa city to the people you claim to care so much about.

Ashley: Don’t listen to another word they’re saying. Get out of here now while you still can.

Alan: I wish I could say I had a specific plan, but I think we’re gonna have to take our cues from ashley.

Traci: Okay, what signs are you looking for?

Alan: Well, uh, mainly her memories coming back. Uh, whatever the traumatic event was, likely happened after her fight with tucker. So once we identify that, we can get at the root of what caused her to split her off into these different personalities.

Traci: Oh, this is just unnerving. The risk to her, that she has to remember something so that she can deal with it, and that means facing something terribly painful. I hate that for her.

Alan: I know, it’s– it’s a delicate process. It all hinges on whether or not ashley can suppress her alters.

Traci: Wait, you– you mean you think they could take control again?

Alan: It is a distinct possibility, and we should proceed accordingly.

Traci: Well, alan, I– I had thought that once she understood what was happening to her, that our ashley could have the strength to resist.

Alan: I wish it were that simple, but it looks like ashley’s alters have a– well a fairly firm grip on her psyche.

Ashley: Oh, honey, what are you doing? You shouldn’t be here. Why don’t you let me handle this? Don’t be afraid. Just let go. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Jack: I can’t believe you would think that. The last thing I wanted was to join nikki in her wasted state of damn near incoherence. I can’t believe you think any part of that would appeal to me.

Diane: But you did it, jack. Whether it appealed to you or not. You risked your life, and I can’t live with that uncertainty again. Worrying every day that if nikki slips, you might too.

Jack: What do I have to say? What do I have to do to get you to believe me? Tell me, I’ll do it.

Diane: How about not being her sponsor again? I mean, what– what am i supposed to do? Am I supposed to be the silently supportive wife left to wonder every time you run to nikki’s side whether or not you’ll even come home or take pills or worse?

Jack: I wish you would just believe in me.

Diane: Oh no, that’s not fair, jack. Don’t you dare make this about my lack of trust or faith in you. You broke that. And now I have to live in fear every day that kyle will end up without a father or harrison without a grandfather or– or me without the love that i waited so long to have.

Jack: I waited a long time for that love too. I am not going to do anything to jeopardize our future together.

Diane: Well, I don’t know about that. And while I can’t stop you from helping nikki, I can’t be here to see how far you might be willing to go to be that help.

Jack: Okay, I hear you. Clearly you’re very serious or you wouldn’t be talking about walking away from what we have. But what do we do now?

Diane: I’m going to give you some time to think about this. To let it all sink in.

Jack: Diane!

Tucker: How did we end up here, audra?

Audra: You know exactly how. You followed me to paris, tracked me down, then barged in here uninvited.

Tucker: That’s not what I mean and you know it. We were on top of the world. We were genuinely happy. At least I was. I… I was ready to commit my entire life to you. With or without the ring. With or without the vows. I still am. Why? Why are you doing this?

Audra: You can be so smart about some things, but so utterly oblivious about others. You chose everyone else over me. You changed your plans because of ashley and then you changed them because of devon. Look, I was never the most important one to you. You say that you love me, but you couldn’t put me at the forefront of your life. Not once. And I was a fool to believe in your promises. That as soon as you helped ashley or as soon as you got back into devon’s good graces, then I’d be the center of your world. I fell for the oldest lie in the book. That I could change you. That my love would change you, but you will never change. And I’ll never let myself believe you again.

Ashley: Get out of here now, ashley. Let me help you, honey. Let me out. No, I will not.

Alan: Well, I better head back to my apartment, drop off my bags, i’ll take a quick shower, but I will be back soon, okay?

Traci: Okay, alan, what should I do while you’re gone? I mean, what can I do to keep my sister safe?

Alan: Just do whatever you can to keep her focused and engaged.

Ashley: Hey, do you guys want some coffee?

Alan: Oh, no, thanks. I gotta go back to my apartment, but I’ll be back soon. Give you time to get settled, okay?

Ashley: Thank you so much.

Alan: Of course.

Ashely: For everything you’re doing, I’m so grateful.

Alan: Ah, of course, hon, of course. I’ll be back soon.

Traci: Ashley, you must be just exhausted. If you’re tired and you need to sleep–

Ashley: I can’T.

Traci: I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to push you.

Ashley: No, it’s not that. I’m just afraid. I’m afraid to go to sleep.

Traci: What are you afraid of?

Ashley: I can feel them around me, tracy. I can hear them. They’re in my head right now. I can hear them. They– they want to take charge. I’m sorry. They’re looking for a chance, and I just– I have to stay awake.

Traci: Okay, I– I know that you’re frightened, but listen to me, we’re on the right path. We are on track to finding out what’s going on with you, and we are going to find solutions. We are. Once and for all.

Ashley: I believe that, but I can’t let my guard down. I know that they’re trying to protect me from something, but I can’t let them. I can’t let them take over. Not right now.

Disco music

Summer: Today’s a big day, isn’t it?

Harrison: Uh-huh. Claire is coming.

Summer: That’s right. She is gonna hang out with you while mommy and daddy are at work, and you are gonna be just fine.

Harrison: We’re gonna have a lot of fun.

Summer: I’m sure you are. Harrison, you know that I love you more than anything in this world, right? And I am going to be thinking about you all day long, and I’m gonna be imagining all the fun that you’re having. But listen, if you get sad or upset, or even if you just miss me or your daddy, just have claire call us, okay? Anytime. Or you can call us yourself. You remember how to do that, right? You just pick up the phone, you press one, and it’s all set for you to call us anytime, okay?

Harrison: I know.

Kyle: You know what? I have a feeling today is going to be a really good day for all of us.

[ Knock on door ]

Harrison: Claire, you’re here!

Claire: Hey.

Tucker: Are you really gonna throw away what we have because I want to help my son. That’S… what kind of a person just walks away from his family?

Audra: Wait, isn’t that what you wanted ashley to do? Wasn’t that what your big blow-up was about? You were willing to walk away because she wouldn’t sever her relationship with her family. Sounds like you’re getting a bit of karmic payback.

Tucker: You’re using ashley as your defense?

Audra: I’m just pointing out your hypocrisy.

Tucker: One situation has absolutely nothing to do with the other.

Audra: You know, you’re absolutely right. They are very different. Ashley’s family actually cares about her. She would’ve lost a lot if she’d given them up for you. You, on the other hand… your son doesn’t give a damn about you. He has no use for you and probably has no intention of ever giving you a second or tenth chance.

Tucker: Well, you know that things are complicated between him and me and hell, you’ve been around for my efforts to–

Audra: All of which have failed.

Tucker: I see, so I should just– just give up? Devon, dominic’s nice knowing you, but forget it.

Audra: I never said to forget your son and grandson. I simply asked you to follow through on the plans you made with me. You’re the one who set up this either-or scenario. Okay, either I accept your priorities or our business and personal partnership is over.

Tucker: It was never, ever either-or. It was always you, end. There was never a scenario where there was no you, audra. Never.

Audra: I am tired of this argument. And I don’t need to justify my decision to you. Look, my eyes have finally been opened. You will never make me a priority, so I’m done. Now, please get out and leave me alone.

Tucker: So that’s it. Really? It’s over? Stay away from glissade.

Ashley: Thank you.

Traci: Mm-hmm. Ashley, I think I might understand how scared you must be.

Ashley: I don’t think you do. I don’t think anybody can, really. I mean, you know, I just kind of wake up and I realize that I’ve been doing things and saying things that I have absolutely no memory of. It’s like I have no control over my own being, and that’s so frightening. I mean, I just wouldn’t wish it on anybody.

Traci: I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to diminish the severity of what you’re going through.

Ashley: No, I know. I didn’t mean it that way. I guess I’m just trying to explain it to you as much as I’m trying to explain it to myself. You know? I, like, don’t understand. Why would I reconnect with tucker? What would motivate that?

Traci: Okay, you know, I think we should wait for alan for this. I mean, he’s the one that’s trained and prepared to walk you through it.

Ashley: But I don’t understand. If they’re trying to protect me, then why would I drag tucker back into this?

Traci: I don’t know. Maybe they think tucker could protect you somehow?

Ashley: Does that make any sense to you? I have family for that. I’ve got friends for that.

Traci: You do. And we’re people who love you and want only the best for you.

Ashley: Thank you. I guess I should wait, right? Wait for alan before I try digging into my psyche.

Traci: Yeah, but for now, I mean, tell me. Is there anything you want? Anything you need? What can I do?

Ashley: There is one thing.

Traci: Name it.

Ashley: Could you just keep an eye on me? I mean, could you just watch me and just… I don’t know. Make sure if I do anything out of character or something. Just make sure I’m me. I would’ve called yesterday.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue…

Jack: Diane? Diane, hold up. I can’t let you walk away like this. We have to talk this through.

Diane: There’s nothing more to talk about. How many times do I have to explain how I feel?

Jack: As many times as it takes to work this out. Look, I hate that I worried you so much that night. That’s why this will never happen again.

Diane: Yeah, you say that, jack. But you clearly don’t get what I went through all night when you didn’t come home. You know, I had no idea what could’ve happened to you and all the horrible scenarios that went through my head. A– a– an accident, a mugging, a heart attack.

Jack: None of those things happened. I am fine. I am healthy. I’m here. And I am determined to build our life together.

Diane: You deliberately put yourself in harm’s way without thinking about how it would affect me. Without thinking about how much I need you. How much your family needs you. How am I supposed to live with that?

Jack: I don’t know. I will apologize a million times over. I will swear on everything i hold dear that I will never do this to you again.

Diane: All right, just stop. It’s not enough because I have seen how far you’ll go for nikki and how far you’re not willing to go for me. I mean, what if the situation with her gets bad again? What’s to stop you from doing something just as dangerous? I’m sorry. I’m sorry if it seems unfair. But I have to end things now. I don’t have another choice.

[ Cell phone buzzes ]

Jack: This is not fair. Nikki needs help. She still needs help. This is not the way to handle this.

Diane: Nikki needs help? What about us, jack? Our marriage needs help.

Jack: They are two completely different situations and I will tell you walking out on me is not the way to help our marriage.

Diane: You know what? Don’t tell me how to handle this. Leaving is a decision that I have to make for myself. I am the only one who gets to decide what i can live with and what I can’T.

Summer: It would be great if you could limit harrison’s junk food intake in between meals. We’ve got plenty of healthy snacks in the fridge for him. And it– it was nice of you to bring brownies but those will definitely need to wait until after lunch.

Claire: Yeah, of course. I completely understand and will follow all of your rules. I understand the importance of boundaries for all of us.

Summer: Um, and I don’t want you leaving the property for now.

Harrison: No? No ducks today? They might be hungry.

Kyle: I’m sure they’ll survive. At least until claire gets a booster seat for you.

Claire: Oh, I’ve actually been doing some research about that for the safest brand and i wanted to ask you if you had a preference.

Kyle: Proactive thinking. I’m impressed.

Summer: Ah, I appreciate that, claire but I will be picking out the booster seat.

Harrison: Will claire be here all day? How much time do we have? Because I’ve got a list of stuff to do.

Claire: I am so glad to hear that and I have a list too but we don’t have to cram it all in today. We might get a chance to hang out again soon.

Traci: Ashley, I am here for you and I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that my sister, who I love so much, stays present and safe and in control.

Ashley: Thank you. I couldn’t do this without you. I have so many questions.

Traci: Ah, we both do and i wish I had answers for us but ashley, we’re gonna get some soon.

Ashley: You think so? Because I heard– I heard alan talking about his plan or lack of a plan. I mean, I get the dilemma, right? He’s counting on me to guide us but I mean, I– it’s like a dead zone. It– there’s–

Traci: Okay, alan has gotten us this far and I have to believe he’s gonna find a way to break through.

Ashley: I hope so because I’m just putting all my faith in him but the problem is he’s counting on me.

Tucker: Oh, excuse me. Hey, alan. How’s it going? Where’S… when my doctor gave me breztri for my copd

Alan: How you doing, ashley? Did you get some, uh, rest?

Traci: Oh, no, she’s so full of caffeine. She couldn’t possibly sleep.

Ashley: Yeah, I was afraid to. I didn’t want one of the other personalities to get a foothold.

Alan: Well, that’s understandable but exhaustion can bring them out as well.

Ashley: So what are you telling me? No matter what I do, they’re gonna take over?

Alan: No, of course not. I’m just saying I– I want you to go easy on yourself. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself, okay?

Ashley: I wanna do this now.

Traci: She’s been so eager to jump right in, you know, piece together everything that’s happened to her but we decided that we’d wait for you to return before we got started.

Ashley: But I do wanna do this now.

Alan: Okay. Coffee and talk is what we’ll do. We’ll, uh, we’ll piece this all together, okay?

Ashley: Okay. So what exactly are you hoping for? I mean, I know you want me to remember things but how am i supposed to do that?

Alan: Well, I want us to try to revive memories of what happened after your fight with tucker and before you came home. I think it’s in that window of time that something happened to you, traumatic enough to, uh, bring out those protective alters.

Traci: So ashley, can you think of what that might be?

Ashley: Ah, listen, I’ve been trying. I’ve been wracking my brain. I’ve just got nothing.

Alan: Well, even if you can’t remember exactly what happened, do you have any idea of maybe where you went or what you did or… well, what did you and tucker do before the bistro?

Ashley: Uh, I’m not sure about that exactly but I do know that I’d been up the whole night before. I’d been really wrestling with the, uh, the thought of having to just walk away from my family and give up jabot and I– I knew I had to talk to tucker about it. I knew it was gonna be, you know, difficult. So I was apprehensive but I was hopeful but obviously the whole thing unraveled.

Alan: Okay. Well, do you remember maybe what happened after then, um? Did you go somewhere to clear your mind or something? Have coffee or get a drink or… just, you know, try to close your eyes and retrace your steps ’cause any little detail could, uh, trigger a really important memory.

Ashley: Okay, that scares me when you say that. When you tell me that I have to retrace my steps, it’s very frightening for me.

Alan: That could be because your subconscious doesn’t want you to face what happened. Your mind’s been blocking this out. And that’s why it’s so important that we do this.

In unison: One, two, three, four. I declare a thumb war.

Harrison: Yeah!

Claire: Ah, you got me!

Kyle: Okay, you two. Mom and I are leaving now.

Summer: But because it’s your first day, we’re not gonna be gone too long.

Claire: No problem. Harrison and I will be just fine.

Summer: You know what? Maybe I should just work from here actually. Out of the way, in the office or the den or something so I’m– I’m nearby just in case.

Kyle: Summer, I’m sure they’ll be fine. We just love you so much. We hate to leave. We like having fun with you and hanging out but we have to go to work. Now, we’re all gonna be brave today, right?

Harrison: Mommy, don’t worry. Claire’s going to take good care of me. We’re gonna have a lot of fun. Right, claire?

Claire: You bet.

Kyle: Okay.

Summer: Bye, sweetie. I love you. Have a good day, okay?

Kyle: See you later, buddy. All right.

Harrison: Come on, claire. Wait till you see where the caterpillars hang out.

Claire: What? Let’s go!

Kyle: Let’s go.

Jack: Keeping nikki sober is the only thing I am trying to do here.

Diane: You act like I’m being selfish. I’d like to see nikki sober too. But this is not an either-or situation. You are not the only option for her, jack. Even victor thought you were a terrible choice to be nikki’s sponsor.

Jack: Well, now we’re going to quote victor? His opinion doesn’t hold any weight with me.

Diane: Well, neither does mine.

Jack: No, that is not true and you know it. This is– this is about a recovery support group and what they do. They support each other. That’s all that’s happening here. Nikki and I have a rapport. We have a trust that she’s not gonna find with anybody else. And to ask her to start all over with a new sponsor right now of all times is just– it’s cruel.

Diane: So you think I’m being cruel?

Jack: No, I’m not saying that you’re cruel. I’m saying you don’t understand why I am ideally suited to be her sponsor right now.

Diane: Jack, have you considered the possibility that nikki chose you because she knew that you’d go easier on her than some unknown sponsor? Let’s be honest, she certainly found a way to do a lot of drinking on your watch.

Jack: It’s a lot more complicated than that. The fact that she was drinking is why she needed a sponsor. If I hadn’t been there, it could’ve been a whole lot worse.

Diane: So she can find another sponsor. You could even help her. You could help her find someone more suited to her needs.

Jack: Well, you have really thought this through, haven’t you?

Diane: Yes! Okay, you– you have made a lot of decisions about this whole situation without me. And I’ve been playing catch-up from the very beginning. But right now, I am drawing a line in the sand.

Jack: And that’s it? Just like that, the line is drawn?

Diane: Just– jack, I am sorry if that’s not what you want to hear. But you have brought this on yourself. You’re the one making the choice. I love you. You know that. And this is breaking my heart. But right now, I need to walk away from you.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Kyle: You know, we could’ve gotten coffee back at the house. Or we could get it from the break room at jabot.

Summer: Okay, maybe I needed to ease into this transition a little bit. Take a little breather. Before going right to work.

Kyle: Summer, harrison’s had a nanny before. You’ve left strict instructions for he and claire not to leave the property. And mrs. Martinez is there. What is there to be nervous about?

Summer: Really, kyle?

Kyle: I know, I know. It’s been a while since we left harrison with a caregiver.

Summer: And it’s the first time since the kidnapping. And his new nanny is that psycho’s niece. So yes, I– I have some nerves.

Kyle: And you’re handling it great. We’re setting an example for harrison. Trust and resilience are important values for him to learn. There’s nothing to worry about. It’s all good, don’t you think?

Summer: I hear you. I hear you. And I agreed to go along with this decision. I just hope that we never have any reason to regret it.

Kyle: We won’T. This might just be a good reset for us all.

Jack: I’m not gonna let you do this. I’m not gonna let you walk away. I refuse to lose you over this.

Diane: And I refuse to lose you to an overdose.

Jack: I can’t believe you would even consider giving up our marriage.

Diane: You think I want this? I just– I just don’t know what else to do.

Jack: I do. I’m not gonna let you walk away from us. Nikki will have to find herself another sponsor.

Diane: Ah, I’m sorry. I love you.

Alan: Well, let’s just stay with that night, okay? And remember, your memories are in the past and they cannot hurt you. I know– I know you’re afraid of bringing them up again, but just know you have support, okay? And we’re here with you.

Ashley: Okay, thank you. I’m safe, right? With the two of you and I’m safe and my memories can’t hurt me.

Alan: That’s right.

Ashley: Okay.

Alan: So that night, did you come back to your apartment here or did you stay at the hotel with tucker?

Ashley: I went for a walk. I called you and I asked you to meet me.

Alan: You called me? What day was this?

Ashley: Uh, I don’t remember the exact day.

Traci: It was the first week of september.

Ashley: No, I know that, but I don’t know the exact day. I mean, does it matter? I mean, we spoke, so don’t you remember the day?

Alan: Um, are you sure you called me?

Ashley: Yes. I remember it specifically because you told me you would meet me after your last session.

Alan: Ashley, I was in florence the first week of september.

Ashley: No, that can’t be. I know it was the same evening. I know it.

Alan: Well, I’m– I’m afraid that’s not possible.

[ Dramatic music ]

Hope: You can’t be serious.

Steffy: I don’t say things I don’t mean, especially when it comes to the fiscal health of this company. Tough decisions have to be made.

Hope: And you’re making this decision without any input from me.

Steffy: Hope, your line is in trouble. I wish that weren’t the case.

Hope: I somehow seriously doubt that.

Steffy: Okay, you can think whatever you want, but I have to think about this company. If that means cutting your line, then I’ll have to do that.

Brooke: You’re not sure about luna’s mother?

Donna: What exactly do you mean by that?

Katie: Just what I said.

Brooke: Well, you told us that she and bill are an item, but you and bill are close too, despite the fact that you’re not married anymore.

Donna: So, we have to ask you again, sis. Is there still a part of you that wants another chance with bill?

Bill: It’s really true. You and I could have a daughter together.

Poppy: Yes.

Bill: I mean, I could be the dad that luna never had growing up.

Poppy: Yes, bill. Yes, you could be luna’s father.

Luna: My mom’s told you that I don’t know who my father is. Well, has she ever mentioned anything or any ideas on who it could be?

Bill: We discussed it. And for a while, I thought, maybe hoped, that it could be me.

Luna: Is bill spencer my father?

Poppy: No, honey. Bill isn’t your father.

Li: I need to speak with you, luna. It can’t wait.

Luna: What can’t?

Li: Your mother and bill’s relationship. I need to know where things stand. Tell me everything.

Katie: I’ve already said that I don’t see a future with bill.

Donna: Yes, you said that, but is that how you really feel?

Katie: Are– are you accusing me of not knowing my own heart, my own mind?

Brooke: We are not accusing you. We love you.

Donna: Sweetie, we just want you to be happy.

Katie: I am happy.

Donna: Okay. But could you be happier? You know, if you had what you once had with bill. When things were really good between you two.

Li: I know poppy’s been spending a lot of time with bill, but I’m also aware that your mother has a history. A pattern of dating older, very wealthy men. I don’t think her intentions are pure.

Luna: So you’re saying my mom uses men? That she’s a gold digger?

Li: That’s precisely what I’m saying.

Poppy: I’m so sorry for not being more transparent with you earlier.

Bill: No, you– you don’t have to apologize. I understand. You were afraid. You have nothing to be afraid of. This could be the most incredible blessing. And not just for you and me, but especially for luna. We both know what needs to happen next, poppy. A paternity test. Today.

Hope: You can’t just shut me out like this.

Steffy: I’m not. I’m including you in the decision making. Especially where the financial viability of hope for the future is concerned.

Hope: Well, if that were true, I– I feel like I would’ve been a part of the conversation much earlier, so that I could make some corrections in order to save the line.

Steffy: Okay, how could you do that?

Hope: Oh, so in other words, you are tanking the line.

Steffy: As co-ceo of this company, it’s my job to make this company more profitable. Make tough decisions, hope.

Hope: Exactly. Co-ceo. Steffy, you aren’t running this company just on your own. I mean, have you even run this by ridge?

Steffy: Okay, that’s besides the point.

Hope: Because he had a very different view.

Steffy: It’s besides the point, hope. Okay, well, you know, I think it is– it is the point, if what I suspect is true.

Steffy: Which is?

Hope: That this decision to cut my line, it’s not strictly business. And I’m right, aren’t I?

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Steffy: Seriously, you think I’m canceling your line to teach you a lesson?

Hope: Oh, so you admit you are canceling it.

Steffy: That is yet to be determined.

Hope: Oh, but it’s heading that way.

Steffy: Hope for the future has lost its footing.

Hope: Well, I’m not the one who strong-armed thomas into taking my son and leaving the country and costing my line its lead designer.

Steffy: Okay, thomas had to do what was best for him. And his son. So, we’re done talking about it.

Hope: Well, of course we are, because you know–

Steffy: The one thing I know is that I’ve been concerned about hope for the future for a very long time. And I gave you time. You and your team to pull it together, but you haven’T. Now, it’s time to take action. So yes, I will be talking to my father. And I will be talking to carter. A decision has to be made on your line.

Katie: Wow, you two really know how to put your little sister on the spot.

Donna: Sweetie, that– that is not what this is about. We just wanna make sure that you’ve really turned the page with bill or is there something more that you wanna explore?

Brooke: We can tell on some level you still love him and miss him. Unless we’re misreading you. Are we?

Katie: No, you’re not entirely off base. I mean, bill gave me a life. We had a lot of good times together. He opened up the world for me, in a way. He gave me a love that I never could’ve imagined. And the best gift of all, our son. I mean, will, is– he is– he is the light of my life.

Brooke: And bill’S.

Katie: Yeah, he’s been a remarkable father to will. He really has. And we’ve had a lot of amazing times as a family.

Donna: Look, you and bill share– share a child together and that is something luna’s mother will never have with bill.

Luna: Please, aunt li, let’s not do this again. Okay, I realize that you and my mom have your differences, but–

Li: It’s much more than that. I see who poppy really is. The way she’s lived her life.

Luna: She’s lived her life raising me. And caring for me and– and loving me.

Li: Spoken like a loyal, devoted daughter. Who perhaps is wearing blinders where her mother is concerned.

Luna: Until recently, maybe that was true. Maybe I did put her on a pedestal, but I’ve realized that she’s human. And she’s gonna make mistakes, just like the rest of us. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love her. And I’m not gonna defend her when I feel like she’s being unfairly attacked.

Li: By me. Because of what I said about her and bill.

Luna: My mom has fallen for bill. He means a lot to her.

Li: Of course, he does. He ticks all the boxes. He’s handsome, older, rich, very rich, but he’s also kelly’s grandfather. And as everyone knows how protective I am of finn’s family. I won’t allow poppy to take advantage of bill.

Luna: Okay, this is ridiculous. My mom’s feelings towards bill are nothing but genuine. And he’s crazy about her, too.

Bill: Luna could actually be my daughter.

Poppy: You really want that?

Bill: I can’t wait. Are you kidding me? You know, luna has spent her– her whole life not knowing who her father is. And if it’s me, I’ve gotta make up for lost time. I wanna get that relationship going yesterday. We need to do this paternity test. Right now, today.

Poppy: Hey, I agree. But– but first, I wanna talk to luna alone.

Bill: Yeah. Yeah, absolutely. I just hope she’s as excited as I am about the possibility of me being her father.

Katie: I appreciate both of you saying what you’re saying, but bill and I have been apart for quite some time and he seems quite smitten with luna’s mom.

Brooke: Maybe. But it seems deep down, he would like to reunite will’s family.

Donna: And not just for will’s sake. Look, if the love that you have for bill has never gone away, katie…

Hope: Hi. Mom, please. Katie, donna, I’m sorry to interrupt. I just– I heard my mom was here, so.

Brooke: Hi, honey. What’s up?

Hope: Um, I just came from a meeting with steffy and something needs to be done about her. She’s completely out of control.

Carter: It doesn’t look good. I mean, hope for the future’s in transition, but these latest projections…

Steffy: They’re worse than what we expected.

Carter: It’s definitely falling short. But like ridge said, if we give the line time to bounce back.

Steffy: Carter, you’re our coo. Do you really think we should just wait around, cross our fingers, until hope for the future comes roaring back? I didn’t think so.

Liam: Okay, you have been pushing me to get this deal wrapped for weeks now. I’ve been working day and night, nonstop, just to make it happen for you. And then finally, when we’re down to the wire, I can’t find you. I gotta come chase you down at home just to get a– a sig– a– hello? Hello, dollar bill spencer. Hi.

Bill: What? What? What?

Liam: Have you heard a– a–

Bill: No, no, I haven’t heard. No, not really, ’cause you’re like, blah, blah, blah.

Liam: Okay. Ooh, not sure what to do here. Um, what is going on with you today?

Bill: Um, well, poppy was here just before you arrived.

Liam: Oh. Oh. Oh, god. Did I almost interrupt like a–

Bill: No, no, no, no, no. It’s not what you think.

Liam: Okay. What is it, then?

Bill: What is it? Uh, it’S… well, poppy, uh, told me something that was just mind-blowing.

Poppy: Hey, luna? Can you take a break? I really need to talk to you.

Luna: Mom, I’m working.

Poppy: This is important. Very much so.

Luna: What? What’s going on?

Poppy: There’s something you need to know. It’s about your father. To give your teeth a dentist clean feeling.

Liam: You said poppy just left?

Bill: Yeah.

Liam: You guys argue?

Bill: What? Do I look upset to you?

Liam: No.

Billy: Angry?

Liam: No.

Bill: Well, then?

Liam: Well, then what?

Bill: Ah, you know, liam, you are my son, and I consider you to be a fairly intuitive person, and yet, when it comes to read your old man, you’re like, whew. When I said that poppy told me something mind-blowing, I meant in a good way. Hell, in a great way. I mean, I’m thrilled.

Liam: Oh. Okay. All right. You’re thrilled. You’re thrilled? I’m thrilled you’re thrilled. What– what– what– what are we thrilled about?

Bill: Ah, life, liam. Just life. Poppy and I were reminiscing about that– that one night that

Liam: Music festival. We spent together.

Bill: Yeah, yes. Well, um, the one regret that i always had is that it was just that one night, that I let all of my business distractions get in the way, and I– I never reached out to poppy again. And I– I never even thought for a moment that there was a possibility that– that, um… well, poppy, she told me something yesterday. And, uh, liam, poppy finally admitted that I could be luna’s father.

Luna: My father? What about him?

Poppy: Um, I know that for most of your life, you’ve wondered who your father is.

Luna: Yeah. Only you’d never tell me, for reasons I still don’t completely understand.

Poppy: I’m sorry, sweetheart. It’s– it’s just that I loved our life together so much that I didn’t think that I needed anyone except– except my beautiful and my precious daughter.

Luna: And what, that’s changed?

Poppy: Over 20 years ago, on one magical and unforgettable night, I was with the most amazing and unique man. It’s a man that I fell in love with from the moment I saw him. And that’s why I always told you that you were made from love.

Luna: Okay, mom, I need to know. You have to open up. You need to finally tell me who my father is.

Poppy: Yes, and this is why I’m here, to give you the incredible news. Now, I am not 100% certain, but there is a chance, a very good chance, that your father… is bill.

Luna: What? Bill? My– my father could be bill spencer?

Poppy: Yes. Yes, honey.

Luna: Oh, my god. I– I’ve almost given up hope to ever knowing, uh– uh… and to hear you say that it– it might be bill spencer?

Carter: You’re really considering killing hope’s line?

Steffy: Hope for the future is underperforming in a very big way, and thomas isn’t here to save the day.

Carter: I know, but come on, steffy. There’s no way brooke will let that happen.

Steffy: Well, brooke isn’t ceo, carter. I am.

Brooke: What has steffy done now?

Hope: Oh, you won’t believe it. Actually, wait, what am I talking about? What am I saying? You will believe it because it is just so typical of her.

Brooke: What is?

Hope: Well, pulling rank. You know, her vindictiveness. I, look, I– I am not going to deny the fact that hope for the future is going through a rough patch right now, given the way that thomas left.

Brooke: Thanks to steffy convincing him to run off to paris and leaving you and your line in a lurch.

Hope: Exactly. That is something that takes time to recover from. And I knew it was going to be challenging and I wasn’t about to throw in the towel. I mean, hope for the future means so much to me, and it is so much more than a clothing line. It’s about empowering women and backing the causes that we care about. And that doesn’t matter to steffy at all. My name is on the line, she wants to destroy it, just like she’s trying to destroy me.

Donna: Wait, hope, what are you saying? This– this–

Hope: Well, steffy’s already helped destroy my relationship to thomas. You know, encouraged him to move across the world and took my son with him, and now she’s trying to take hope for the future away from me as well.

Brooke: What? No, sweetheart.

Hope: No, mom, it’s true. Steffy wants to cancel hope for the future. She says that it’s a business decision, but we all know that is not the case. This is about her personal vendetta against me. This is about her trying to take something that I care so much about away from me yet again, and I am tired of it. I’m not going to allow it, mom. Look, I’ve tried to play nice, but if she wants to do this, if she wants to go after my line and pit the forresters against the logans, then let her. Steffy has another think coming and she’s going to regret it because this time, it’s war.

Teresa Donovan. As I live and breathe. Hello, Stefan.

It’s been a while. Welcome to the bistro. Oh, delighted to be here. So I take it you have everything you need? Indeed, I do. Your staff has been And just so you know, this is a celebratory mocktail. Okay, uh, uh, what are you celebrating? If it’s your birthday, I can have the waitstaff come out and sing you a song.

Nah, no, no, no, it’s not my birthday. I’m actually celebrating moving into the Kyriakos Mansion. Or Kyriakos Domicile, as I prefer to call it. It’s a little less pretentious that way, don’t you think? Uh, it is, it is a mansion, Theresa. It’s a mansion. Yeah, I know, it is pretty enormous, isn’t it? And Alex and I practically have a whole wing to ourselves.

Oh, you moved in with Alex, huh? Mm hmm. Yeah, we just left our crime department just a few days ago. You know, we had the servants unpack for us. So we’re all settled in. Lucky you. I know. Lucky me indeed. So Alex, tell me, oh, oh my god, did you, uh, wake up this morning and, uh, just come straight to my bed from Teresa’s?

Would it bother you if I said yes?

Maybe. Would it bother you less if I told you I got a present for you? It might help. Well then.

I stopped by the jewelry store. On my way over to you. While I was walking through the square. Oh my god, Alex. That is beautiful. I saw it in the window the other day, and uh, it made me think of you, so I went back and I bought it. That’s gorgeous. Yeah, I really like it. Uh huh. I love it. Let me just show you how much.

You’re up early. Did something happen?

Yeah, we just got a major break on Weston.

He’s being stoic, but I know that he’s heartbroken. Yeah.

You love that little boy, and you love being a father. God, I’m just, I’m so glad that you’re there for him, Roman. He really, he needs you right now. Hmm. Okay, I will check in with you. Thanks. Bye. This

is just heartbreaking. So heartbreaking. So you prefer to sleep during the day? Is that it, little one? Or perhaps you’re just still adjusting to your new home? New family? And is that why you were up every hour on the hour last night crying your little heart out? Well, don’t you worry. That’ll change as soon as you start to settle in with your mom and me.

You may have also noticed that I’m not using your name anymore. Well, that’s because I don’t want you to get used to it since we’re going to be giving you a new name. Once your mother and I settle on something more suitable. You see, Jude DeMirra doesn’t work for me. Not at all.

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

How much do you want to bet that’s Maggie right now? I’m wondering why the hell I’m not in the office. And why are you not in the office? Isn’t that obvious? Okay, listen Alex, as much as I enjoy lying in bed with you all morning, if my brother Titan’s vulnerable. He’s sure to take advantage. He’s always watching.

Let him watch. He can’t touch Titan as long as I’m in charge. Well, my God, this woman’s extra persistent. Maggie, come on. Oh, damn, I’m late for an appointment. Okay, well, you know what? Then go. We’re just getting started. You gotta get to work.

Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay.

Speaking of luck, you were certainly born with a proverbial silver spoon in your mouth, huh? Being a DiMera and all. Your point. Why would you choose to run this, oh, so very popular bistro? Because, Teresa, I never leave anything to chance. And, if you’ve been paying attention, you’d know that my inheritance has changed hands quite a few times.

That explains it, then. And yes, I admit, it has been a little Slow here. Slow? It’s empty. It’s early. Our lunch crowd hasn’t trickled in yet. And, in fairness, we did just lose our GM, and Ava had a knack for helping people feel welcome and at home. Me? I’m just the money guy. Right. Well, sounds like you need a new manager then.

One with all those people skills you just talked about. You’re probably right. Maybe I do.

So the ISA teamed up with Naval Intel and I just heard this from Andrew Donovan. They cracked the code in Clyde’s black book. That’s amazing. I know. Well, how, how did they do it so quickly? I don’t know. These guys are pros. Andrew said they found a list of dealers, their numbers, and that they’re forming a multi agency task force to track them all down.

Oh my god. That’s fantastic. Yeah. And the best part of this? Three of those dirtbags on the list are local. Andrew gave me their information. I’m telling you right now, one of those guys is going to lead me to Clyde.

Okay, so for the record I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but here take a look do you think

Yeah Looks pretty good. You know, I had to learn the hard way, though, at Bella, that SEOs for job searches are incredibly specialized. Yeah, well, DiMera’s marketing department usually would take care of that stuff for me, so Oh, God. Job searching. I’ve been doing that ever since I left Bella. It’s just so cold now, you know, with all the computers.

There’s like, nothing personal about it. Exactly, and that is not the way I operate. I’m a people person, believe it or not. I would like to put an emphasis on social connections. Camaraderie.

You wouldn’t happen to know somebody perfect for this job, would you?

Come here. Wow, what is this? Is this some new fetish of yours? Good morning, Kristen. Alex. Hey, Jay. Well, you have great timing, you two. There’s breakfast in the kitchen. And would either of you be interested in meeting my son? Uh Your son? I’m sorry. I actually am running late. Maybe some other time, though. I gotta, I gotta go.

I’ll see you guys. See ya. What? Ahem. Oh, yes, well, I thought I heard a baby crying last night. Figured I just imagined it. No, no, no, you were not imagining. There was certainly a lot of crying last night, poor little fellow. I think he’s still getting used to his living arrangements. Is it? Okay, let me, this is your, your son.

Do you have a minute to sit down? It’s a long story.

No way am I staying behind, Harris. No, you know what? You listen to me, okay? I am the one who helped you track down Clyde. I am the one who sent the email with those photos. And I sure as hell did not come all this way to sit on my ass. Okay, we don’t want to take the chance of tipping Clyde off. Okay, please remember who you are dealing with here.

I’m not an amateur. I know that, but the DEA, the FBI, we’re all going to be following the same leads. If we tip Clyde off, he’s going to panic and he’s going to get out of town. Yeah, and he’s going to be caught off guard, so he’s bound to make some mistakes. That’s true, and he will be running scared. And that’s when I’ll take him down.


was the last time this motel was remodeled? The 60s or something? Yeah, maybe not even that recently. Well, beats the monastery, I’ll tell you that. Although I don’t understand what Harris is doing, dragging me all the way out here in the middle of nowhere just to do nothing. Doesn’t make sense. He didn’t.

What do you mean he didn’t? Well, I just got a text from him. He’s got a new lead. Oh yeah? What? So apparently, Goldman is supposed to go to the post office today to pick up some package. Yeah. So he wants us to go there and stake it out in case she shows up with Clyde. Well, that’s odd. I don’t know, he was pretty adamant about us staying here, so Yeah, well, that was before we got the new information, okay?

Harris can’t be in two places at once, so We’re up. Get dressed. Okay, cool. Ahem. Well, no one comes to mind for the manager position, but what I think you could really use is a PR firm to help you get your reputation back on track. You know my cousin Stephanie, she is fantastic. She runs SJPR. I know Stephanie Johnson.

Ava and I brought her on to rep this place before things went south. But I’m gonna need somebody who is on site and I don’t think Stephanie would be interested in that. You could ask her. I could. But before I do, before Bella went south, did you have any part in the Brady family restaurant dynasty? Well, the Bradys are my family.

Right. Obviously. And I have spent my fair share of time at the pub, so I don’t know, does that make me part of the restaurant dynasty? Sure does. Huh. Okay, well then I guess I am. Why are you asking? Because I think this ad was written especially for you.

Sorry I’m late, Dr. Evans. Only by five minutes. Yeah, right. It’s a good thing that office sent out the reminder text. Got us slightly distracted. Yes, well, distractions happen. Yeah. You cancelled your last three appointments, though. That’s right. Uh, and that will never happen again, I swear to God. Things have just been very, very hectic at Titan recently, and it’s kind of hard to find the time, you know?

Yeah. Yeah. Is there something you want to talk to me about? I had something on my mind, yeah. Okay. I’m listening. Okay, well, um, as you know, originally when I came here, it was, um, to put my Playboy ways behind me. Right? Yeah. At that time, I was pursuing Stephanie. That didn’t work out, as you know. And because I thought she was the one, foolishly, in retrospect, I had a very hard time getting over it when she rejected me.

And Teresa showed up in my life, and we have been together. off and on since then. And right now we are pretty much on. Tate told me that she had moved back into the mansion, uh, and that, uh, the two of you are back together. Yeah. I mean, sort of. Sort of? I mean, we are living together, Teresa and I, yes. Um, but I’m also seeing Kristen DiMera.

So, let me get this straight. Sloan paid off some skeevy doctor to tell you and Nicole that your son was dead. And then she took the baby, which obviously is not dead, and she adopted him. Boggles the mind, doesn’t it? No, it’s just pure evil. Good. I mean, I knew that woman was horrible, but to steal a child.

And then, out of the blue, she confesses the truth to Eric and vanishes from Seven without a trace. Oh my God. And how is Nicole taking this? Well, she’s obviously over the moon about the baby and would love to throttle Sloane. I don’t blame her. Where is Nicole anyway? Oh, she’s upstairs resting. The baby had a wakeful night.

Up every hour on the hour, in fact. The So the baby, your son Well, he’s napping right now, as you can see. And I think it’s gonna be quite a, quite a long one, seeing how he was up all night, as I said. But, as soon as he wakes up, you will get to meet your new nephew. Aww, I look forward to it. But, um, But what?

I’m just processing what you just told me. And, uh, I don’t know, it’s horrible as Sloan is. I just, I don’t, I don’t get it. But what’s to get? You know the whole story. Well, I don’t think I do, and I don’t think you do either. What’s that supposed to mean? Alright, well, I will, I know miracles happen. I got Rachel back when I thought she had died.

So the undead baby part, uh, I mean, that’s not what strains humility for me. Then what does, Diane? What are you talking about? Well, what I’m, what I’m talking about is, I mean, that Sloane, I mean, you think that she did this all by herself, this major deception? I don’t know. I mean, doesn’t that sound fishy to you?

So, you’re seeing Kristen and Teresa? Yeah. And to be honest, Dr. Evans, I actually really like it that way. Variety’s the spice of life, right?

Understood. Yeah, I didn’t expect you to approve that. Actually, I’m just more curious how this all affects you. Right. So, Kristen and Teresa, do they both know? Well, Kristen knows, yeah. She doesn’t care, you know. She actually told me she was in the middle of her driest spell of her life when I showed up. So, for her, I think it’s more, you know, just about being close to someone, uh, physically.

You mean the sex? Yeah, you could put it that, yeah, that, yeah. And Teresa? And Teresa, I think it’s mostly about the money.

You think she’s with you for your money? Nah, I mean, look, I know I’m a decently handsome guy, charming, good for a laugh, but, um, ultimately, I think it’s because I am rich, to be quite frank. Hmm. How does that feel to you? Not good for the ego, of course. You know, we all want somebody to be into us for who we are.

How fascinating of a person we are, right? But, you know, to be honest with you, Dr. Evans, I think nowadays, it’s about the money for a lot of women. For a lot of women? Yeah. Have you done a survey? No survey, but I am speaking from personal experience. And what have you learned? I have learned that since I have become the heir to the Kiriakis fortune, women are throwing themselves at me a lot more than usual.

And you’re just having to bat them away. That, pretty much. So, you and Teresa are now living together at the mansion. Yeah. Big step up from apartment living. Why did you ask her to move in? Um, because it makes sense. You know, she didn’t want to live alone in the apartment, and the Kiriakis mansion is huge.

She doesn’t have a job right now, so her not having to pay rent is a big help. Do you think that asking her to move in with you would suggest a certain level of commitment that you don’t feel?

Um, I guess I didn’t really, uh, I didn’t really think about that, but, um, I don’t think she’s expecting anything. Well, have you asked her? I mean, do you have any idea what she might be expecting? I guess I don’t know for sure. Well, don’t you owe it to her to find out? And, and also, let her know where you are.


Yeah. I guess I do.

Are you seriously offering me a job? I am. Well, thank you. I am truly flattered. But, I would have totally taken this opportunity if this was like a week ago. But, you know, I’m in a relationship now. You’re welcome. With Alex, Kiriakis, and this might not sound terribly feminist of me, but I get it, I get it.

You don’t need to work. Not now, anyway. So, uh, how do you plan on passing your time?

I don’t know, I haven’t really thought about it since I just moved in with Alex, but, um Thinking maybe, learn to play the piano, maybe guitar lessons, or, I don’t know, maybe I could do some volunteer work, or travel. Sounds enriching. Yeah. It might be really tiresome though too, right? I mean, who knows, maybe being rich is like, really boring.

I don’t know, I just want to keep my time free. For now. Got it. But if I think of anyone, I’ll let you know. Thank you. Appreciate that. What? You don’t find it hard to believe that Sloane pulled this off all by herself? I mean, the, the baby switch, having your son declared dead, I mean, et cetera. I mean, this is a pretty complex scheme, EJ.

I am just telling you what she told me, and the police are searching everywhere for her. The Salem police. Ha ha ha. Don’t make me laugh. The Salem police and me, I’ve offered every demure resource in tracking down that horrible woman and bringing her to justice. So, is that the same? Resources to track down, uh, Clyde Weston.

I mean, how’s that going? Are you loosing your, uh Magic touch, little bro?

Shut up, Kristen. This is ridiculous. Don’t you think I look conspicuous? Like the guy dressed in full camo didn’t look conspicuous? No, he didn’t. He was blending in. That’s what camo does. You blend in when you have camo. Everybody’s dressed for deer season here. Deer hunting and cattle wrestling. Okay, alright, I get it.

I get it, okay? You are just like every man I’ve ever met. Deep down, you want to be a cowboy and you’re mad I didn’t get you the cowboy hat. Yeah, the cowboy hat would have been perfect. I would have blended in great. This makes me stick out like a sore thumb. I hate this stupid robe. Okay. The whole point of religious clothes is to make you look non threatening, okay?

We are going to have to talk to some people, right? We’re gonna have to ask them for help, for some information. They’re gonna be more likely to talk to a man of the cloth than a cowboy. Fine, if you say so. I do say so. I’m done talking about this, okay? I’m gonna go into the post office, and I’m gonna talk to the clerk.

See if she knows anything about Clyde and Goldman, alright? Alright, I guess that makes sense. They have been here a while, so Here’s to hoping someone has seen them. Fingers crossed. Alright, you stay out here, okay? Keep your eye out for Goldman, and if you see her, you text me, okay? I got it. Will do. Okay. Oh, and please, Lucas, don’t confront her, okay?

She’s probably armed, and we know she’s dangerous. Yes, I know. Last time I ran into her, she almost shot me and killed me. Confrontation with her is not on my list. Don’t worry about it. Okay, good. Keep your eye out, alright? Watch the door. Alright, go for it.

Hey, you got an extra smoke? You know how expensive these things are? What the hell up, dude? Having your way, dude. You’re Snake, right? Who the hell’s asking?

Thank you, Dr. Evans. Talking to you was really helpful, as always. I’m glad. Good luck with everything and say hello to Maggie for me. Thank you, I will. Although we’re not really speaking too much nowadays, I don’t think she’s very thrilled that Theresa and I are moving in. Good. Correction, she loves Teresa.

I’m sure she’s fine with her living there, but uh, me? Not so much lately. Well, I hope you’ll work things out. Yeah, for sure. Stranger things have happened, right? The thing is, it’s not even the fact that I’m just not getting along with Maggie. Now that she’s involved with this creep Constantine, it’s just making things even more awkward, you know?

Yeah, I understand how you feel. For the life of me, I can’t understand why she’s letting that guy stay there. You know, or why she’s so devoted to him. I mean, I get that she’s lonely, but it’s like everything this guy does exudes phoniness. And every word out of his mouth is just like I don’t know. Total BS.

I can’t say I’m a fan. I think Maggie’s his only fan, actually. Yeah, uh, keep an eye on her, would you please? I will. For sure. Well, I’ll see you soon. I would like to make an appointment for next week. I’d like that. I’ll keep it. Thanks.

Ah, EJ, what a week you have had. It’s, it’s been eventful. Well, at least, uh, you got the baby back. I mean, that’s gotta be a happy thing. Indeed it is. Oh, I am really sorry about, um, John. I admit I was blindsided by Mayor Price’s decision, but she will soon regret making an enemy of me. I’m sure she will. Um, oh, um, actually I heard of, uh, rumblings of a recall election, I’m assuming.

Thank you, Mayor. That’s your handiwork? Well, uh, are you thinking of replacing her? You never know. Hmm, well, actually, I mean, if being DA and DiMera CEO, I mean, that was considered a conflict of interest, uh, what makes you think that being there? Is any less so. That is simple, Kristen. You see, the mayor makes the rules.

I love to make rules.

Oh! My fault, I wasn’t watching my own. You. You.

Hey Roman, I’m just checking in. Oh, you saw him. He just left. How did he seem to you? Um, I’m so glad you were there. I bet that helped a lot. Yeah, no, I agree. He’s going to need his family more than ever now. Now

that he’s lost his son. Ah, still here. Well, since I no longer have to be in my place of employment, where else would I be? Huh. Have you heard about, uh, that thing? I have, yes. Have you had the pleasure of meeting our family’s newest addition? Well, I have. Before he nodded off. But, uh, he’s very sleepy this morning.

Yes, well, he was awake all night. I really do hope this, uh, baby miracle, uh, takes some of the sting off you’re getting. Indeed it does. I feel very blessed to have the cause of my son back where he belongs. Well, you know, I think we should let EJ, uh, have some time to bond with his baby. Well, that’s hard to do while he’s sleeping.

Well, I’m sure he’ll wake up soon. That will give you and I some time to get some air. Good idea. Bye. Bye.


Hey. Where are you coming from? You were up and at them before I even saw you this morning. Yeah, yeah, I had a session with Dr. Evans. How was breakfast? Interesting. You? Also interesting. How so? Well, um, After speaking with Dr. Evans, I realized some things. And I need to be up front. With everyone. Everyone? You.

I’m Kristen. What about Kristen? I’ve been seeing her.

Seeing her as, as in? Yeah, yeah.

I thought that was over, Alex. I thought that that was just an act to make me and Brady jealous. And it was, at the beginning. You know what, it’s okay. I just don’t even explain it. I don’t need to hear it. Um, I just, um. I just want to know, where does that leave us?

Theresa, I really do like living with you. I mean it. I just need you to understand that I’m not in a position to be pulling out a ring anytime soon. If you were expecting that. No. No, I was, I wasn’t expecting that. Okay. I mean, We’ve got a good thing here. You know, we’re just like having fun. We’re, we’re compatible.

It’s all good. Yeah, no, and I agree. I’m glad. It’s just after that whole first engagement ring debacle, you know, I, it hurt you and I don’t want to hurt you, Teresa. But I do need you to understand that, A, just because I’m asking you to move back in with me, I Doesn’t mean I’m ready for like a big commitment.

I know, I don’t, I didn’t, I didn’t think it did, I said that. Okay, good.

You know what’s really cool about this whole thing, for me? Is that I don’t need to follow the rules of a commitment. Because if I’m understanding correctly, you and I are in an open relationship, right? Since you’re obviously still involved with Kristen.

Yeah. Yeah. You understand, correctly. Good. I’m really glad we cleared that up then. Yeah.

Oh my God, I told you not to confront her. I didn’t confront her. She ran into me. I had no choice. She was going to blow my face off if I didn’t do something. So I did something. Yeah, I can see. So what happened to her eyes? Bear spray. I got the bear spray at the convenience store. Well, they said the bears come out of the woods to forage for food.

So, you know, I’m a little proud of that. Paranoid when it comes to wild animals. Like, I shot it with bear spray and it works on people too, doesn’t it? Hey!

You know, I’m really glad that you made me wear this because this is how I hit the bear spray. I can hide a lot of things in here. You never know when I have them. Yeah, I don’t want to know. It doesn’t matter. Did you find out anything about Clyde? I didn’t find a thing. Remember, we got who we want, don’t we?

We have our ex, Officer Goldman. We got you right where we want you. And you’re going to lead us straight to Clyde, aren’t you, Officer? You, uh, Oh yeah Police no kidding find you a mile away Uh, look, I just uh, I want to talk so maybe we just dropped this attitude. Maybe you should get out of my face

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Josslyn, if you got something to say, say it. It’s a fantastic opportunity, drew! And what a compliment — that he wants you? Yeah, it’s, uh… definitely intriguing. “Intriguing” was the total eclipse a month ago. You are being recruited to run for a powerful congressman’s seat — by that very congressman! Aren’t you excited? Well, possibly not as excited as you are, but, no — yeah, I am. It’s — it’s a rush. It’s kind of crazy and — and obviously an honor, but what makes you think that I can do this? And I’m not fishing for compliments here. I-I really want to know. Are you kidding? You single-handedly changed the course of my life — and my family’s life. You risked your life for me, drew. You — you genuinely care about people. Think about what you could do with — with more resources on a wider scale and a bigger stage. Oh. Drew. Hey. Hey. Is this — is this about the new tomorrow institute? I’m not interrupting a work session, am I? Actually, drew has something important to tell you. So, I hear this wedding was really something. Very eventful. Uh, yeah. Why? Did you, uh — did you talk to kristina? Sam. I haven’t actually talked to kristina much since the wedding. I’ve just a lot going on at work, and, um, I need to tie up a bunch of things so I can take time off when the baby comes. Oh, yeah. The baby. Congrats again. Yes. [ Chuckles ] Uh, do you have, uh, tj painting the nursery or something like that? No, but I should. Yeah. You should. Yeah. -Yeah. -That’s a good idea. -Get him working. -Thank you. Soon. Very…soon. Hmm. Um, well, I’d better get going. I’ll — I’ll see you later, dante. Yeah. Yeah. See you around.

[ Exhales sharply ] Thanks for meeting me. Hi! Allie!

[ Chuckles ] Molly! Been a minute. I know. My family calls me a workaholic, and I’d love to deny it, but…

[ Both chuckle ] Um, hey, have you seen kristina lately? I just left her at her mom’s house. At your mom’s house, actually. She wanted to see how alexis was doing. Yeah. No. I-I’m headed there, too, after I just drop something at the courthouse. The davis girls will be in full support. We should hang out soon. Kristina and i and you and tj. Yes! I would love that! Maybe we can all talk about what went down at this eventful wedding.

[ Chuckles ] No pro blem, mom. Just gethere as soon as you can. No, molly is not here yet. Okay. I’ll see you soon. I love you. Did she say anythingabout gregory? How did she sound? Okay…ish. I hope she’s alright. I mean, she’s just been so upset since gregory passed. Yeah, I know. Gregory’s death hit her pretty hard. I mean, she and gregory were supposed to go to the wedding together until the hearing came up. Yeah, I know. I hope it was worth it. I just worry that if she loses her law license, she — no, no, no, no, no, no. Don’t — don’t — don’t — don’t say that please. Because I worry, too. But we have to remember that sometimes mom is a lot stronger than we give her credit for. Yeah. And so are you. That’s a lovely sentiment. Why are you looping me in with that? Because sometimes things can get… conflicted. And you are fiercely loyal and protective to the people that you love. But in the end, you have to be just as fiercely loyal and protective to yourself. And I believe that you will. You believe I-I will what, sam? Uh, well, when push comes to shove, I believe that you will do the right thing. Even if it comes at a cost to sonny.

Alright, so the reason your “minecraft” log-in has been so glitchy is because of, well, cookies.

[ Gasps ] I warned you not to eat over your keyboard. -I don’T. -Oh, that’s interesting. Why is there all this dried frosting caked around the touchpad? Okay, well, the cookies I’m talking about are more of a cyber variety. I suspect james has accumulated an ungodly amount of those pesky website cookies, which can slow down your processor. But I’ve run a quick cleanup app, and voil…

[ Beeping ] You’re back in business, bud. -[ Laughs ] -Thanks. You’re the best. -Ohh! -Thanks, dad.

[ Maxie clears throat ] Oh. Maxie, you’re home! Hi, honey! We were so engrossed with spinelli’s wizardry, we didn’t hear you come in. Clearly. Yeah, I tried for two hours to figure out what was wrong with the computer. Dad fixed it in, like, 10 minutes, the same as he did that one night that I was writing a paper and the computer crashed and I thought I lost it, but he saved it. Yeah. Your dad is a tech genius. There’s no question about that. Yeah, and he’s super-handy to have around. Yeah, it was great when he lived here. Can’t you move back in? Pl-e-e-ease? Don’t worry about kristina. I mean, she’s still a bit fragile, but she’s doing better. She’s fragile? Why? You were just talking about the wedding. I thought you knew. Okay. Seems we just got our wires crossed. What? I-I think you should talk to her about it. Oh, but — but you’re right here. That’s not my business. If kristina wants to tell you everything, that’s up to her. Well, but — and you just said she’s fragile, so kris might interpret any well-meaning questions I might ask as an interrogation, and that would really blow things up between us, so… okay. Okay. Um… her father went after dex. And kristina saw the whole thing.

[ Sighs ] She called me from the ladies’ room hysterical, sobbing, hyperventilating. At first, I was afraid it was the baby, but it wasn’T. Okay? I-in fact, I suggested that we go to the E.R., But kristina didn’t want to. She just needed to calm down. I just caught a glimpse of dex’s face inside. He looks really banged up. I mean, if kristina saw that, no wonder she’s so upset. Well, she was, but… she’s doing fine now. Really. Okay. Um… yeah. Thank you. Thanks for letting me know. Blaze: Bye. Obviously you know about what happened at the wedding, so who told you? Sonny. He stopped by looking for dante, and he gave me his version of the story. That’s why dante’s been blowing up my phone. You haven’t spoken to dante? I’ve been busy! What, busy avoiding his phone calls? Dante is worried about you, kristina. And so am I. Wait. You just got finished telling me how strong you think I am.

[Chuckling] Wow. Wow. You were actually listening to me. Sam. Strong people hurt, too. And I’m just worried that you’re carrying this weight about what to do with sonny, and it’s wearing on you. Sam, it’s already been decided. Dex isn’t filing charges. Oh. Well, how do you feel about that? How do I feel about that? How do I feel that my dad isn’t potentially facing prison? Well, yeah, that…and the fact that he hurt dex and isn’t gonna have to face any consequences. You know, look, at the end of the day, he has to face himself. And he — he knows what he did, and he knows that i know what he did. So… it’s wrong!

[ Door opens ] It’s — hi. Kristina: Hi! Hi, girls. Not a word to mom.

[ Door closes ] Hey, mom. I’m so sorry about gregory. Oh. Uh…

[ Chuckles ] Thank you. Sam: How are you doing? I’m, uh — I’m okay. Um… you didn’t have to upend your day and come over here. But I’m glad you did. We brought lunch. How sweet. That’s sweet. How was albany? Um, how about we talk about that when molly gets here? You look pale. Me? No. That’s ’cause she stays out of the sun. You should try it sometime. She’s fine. Are you doing okay, man? Up a few stitches, down a deductible.

[ Sighs ] I guess it looks like it could have been worse. Yeah, thanks to jason, it wasn’T. I guess you have a decision to make. It’s already made. I’m not filing charges. Really? You’re not? Why not? Partly for kristina. She was a witness. And I’m not gonna put her through that, with the baby and all. I can’t do that to her… even though she told me not to back off for her sake. She did? Kristina’s always been a friend to me. What kind of a friend would I be if I made her testify against her father? So, you said part of the reason was kristina. What’s the other part? Best case scenario, sonny gets a year and some change behind bars. That’s after a bitter court battle where I end up getting dragged through the mud. So is it worth it? And why bother for such little benefit? Sonny would still have reach. He’d still probably run his organization. And on his release, he’d have me killed… assuming he even waited that long. I’m not wasting my breath sharing my thoughts with you. And you’re not gonna listen anyway. Maybe not, but you can get it off your chest. We used to be honest with each other, sonny. You were my stepfather. You were there for me when oscar died. You were there for everyone with mike. But you’re not that person anymore. You think that you can do whatever you want to anyone at any time, and you never have to pay for it. You’re very young, josslyn. You don’t know what I’ve been through. I know that you should be in jail for what you did to dex. You should be locked up praying that all of your prior crimes don’t get diane laughed out of court. I bet you’re not even grateful to dex. Grateful for what? For him trying to rat me out to the pcpd?! Sonny! You attacked dex unprovoked. You threatened to kill him! But you lucked out, again, because dex isn’t pressing charges. Why’d he back off? Out of concern for the people that you so willingly shoved aside. He did it for your kids.

You’d be taking mcconkey’s seat and he — and he’s — he’s backing you? Well, he’s, um, retiring, and he thought I’d make a good candidate. He came to drew and proposed it to him. Isn’t that amazing? Yeah. No, it is, it is. I just — I had no idea you were interested in politics, drew. I’m not disinterested. I mean, obviously I’ve never thought about running for office until he pitched it to me. Well, mcconkey made the right call. I’d vote for you. What about you? I value your opinion. I want to hear it. I mean, obviously, there’d be implications for aurora.

[ Sighs ] Okay. Um… well, off the top of my head… I think that it’s a dicey time to split focus with the launch of the wellness division. Curtis at the helm of wellness is the right choice, but he lacks c-suite experience, and we were counting on your supervision there. I mean, he’d catch on. I’m not worried about it. Plus, you could help with that. Drew, if you’re elected, you’re gonna have to put your stock into a blind trust, and you know the sec is gonna be watching. No doubt about it. And you’ll have to take time away from the company, robbing aurora of your vision and guidance. All valid points. Look. I’m sorry. You asked. If you were hoping for a blanket endorsement, I-I’m sorry. I can’t — I can’t give it to you. So, so sorry. Gregory was such an amazing guy. Yeah. It’s hard to believe he’s gone. You know? Yeah. I mean, you know, I knew he had als, and I know what that meant. And I knew that he was declining, but I-I just didn’t expect it this way this soon. I mean, we just jumped out of a plane together!

[ Laughter ] Well, we all know the parachute opened and the jump worked. How about the appeal? Alexis: How about the appeal? That bad? Wasn’t good. Turns out that neil’s brother, fergus byrne, sat on the disciplinary committee when my case first came up. Neil’s brother? That’s a massive conflict of interest. Yeah, that’s what we said. And we gave a strong argument. We fought hard, and he fought dirty. H-he put a tainted take on everything I said. Well, hopefully the judges will see right through that. You know, I don’t think the odds are very good. So I’m gonna prepare myself for a ruling against me. How long will that take? 30 days. A month. That long? They’re really gonna make you wait that whole time? Hey, you were right to fight. However this goes, I’m proud of you for standing up for yourself and making the appeal. Yeah, well, at least we know who turned me in for perjury. Ava jerome. Sam: What? I was with dex when michael asked him to reconsider turning you in. Michael? Yes, michael. Your son. The one that you had renounced. Kristina was such a wreck over what might happen to you that she went to michael and she asked him to “fix it,” which meant going to dex, and that’s what michael did. So, what? I’m supposed to be grateful to michael?

[ Chuckles ] No. That would mean that you can see the good in other people instead of focusing on yourself, so, no, I don’t expect you to be grateful. Just know that if you lift your hand against dex again, the only reason you can is because the man you wanted dead had the grace to let you go. Sonny came to me and told me what happened.

His version of the story. At least that’s how I found out. I see. I told him I wasn’t gonna step in. So I’m not here on his behalf. Didn’t think you were. But I also didn’t arrest him, either. The least I thought I could do was warn him, try and make him understand the gravity of the situation, that if something had happened to you or something does happen to you, he’s the one we’re coming looking for. Think it made a difference? I don’t know. In the past, when I’ve had these conversations with my father, they have deterred him, but right now I don’t know — I don’t know what’s going on. He’s got his temper, sure, but he never openly flouted the law. And right now he’s acting like he’s untouchable. So I don’t know. I guess I misjudged my father… like I misjudged you.

Ava? Of all people? S-she murdered connie, she sabotaged morgan, and — and she goes to the bar and tries to get your license taken away for essentially what amounts to a white lie? Ava’s vicious and ruthless, but she’s smart. She knew how to hit you where it would hurt you the most. I mean, as far as I’m concerned, she took away your law license. Well, she had help. Fergus byrne. That guy should have been disbarred. Not you. No kidding. We pointed out the conflict of interest, and I don’t know that if it swayed the judges or not — I hope so — but at least it’s on the record. Mom, I’m proud that you stood up for yourself. Yeah, and when the outcome we want isn’t guaranteed.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh. It’s dante. I-I gotta handle this. Hey. Why don’t you let me drive you there? Okay? Thank you for coming by. You girls always make me feel better. -Love you. -Love you, too. -I love you, mom. -Alright. -I’ll see you soon. -Alright, honey. Alexis: Be careful. Sam: You know we will. -Bye. -Bye.

[ Door closes ] Okay. So what’s up? You didn’t even touch your food. Oh. Um… I don’t want you to worry that I’m gonna start drinking. Alright? I’m sober. Resolutely so. I’m glad to hear you say that. And I meant what I said. I’m really, really proud of you. I’m sorry. I just have a lot on my mind. What’s on your mind? No. Today’s not about me. No. Today’s about us. So, again, what’s on your mind? How did kristina seem to you just now? Pale. Subdued. Why? Because apparently sonny lost it and assaulted somebody at the wedding right in front of her. I’ve been avoiding you at the station because I didn’t want people thinking I was indirectly trying to pressure you to protect sonny. Well, I’ve been avoiding you, too. To be clear, I never felt any kind of pressure from you. I will admit, I was a little worried when you asked to meet with me today.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. But the problem is, by giving distance, I’m also probably making you think I doubt you as a cop — and I don’T. I think it’s pretty cool you’re trying to turn your life around. That’s all I’m out to do. I should have never gotten tangled up with sonny. Working for him was turning me into someone that I never — never meant to be. I just want to put that behind me. I want to… do better and be better. Earn a badge and be worthy of it. That’s good. That’s good to hear. Look. I appreciate you. You helped save my life. And I am grateful that you aren’t pressing charges, mainly for kristina. Look, I’ve witnessed how much sonny loves his kids. He’s probably shaken up about letting kristina down. Ahh. I don’t know, man. I used to think that, but right now… right now I just don’t know. James, um, whose idea was it for you to ask spinelli to move back in? Was it georgie’s or grandma’s? It was my idea. Georgie: But it’s a good one, and I’m here for it. Please, dad. Move back in. We love having you around, and you’re really helpful around the house.

[ Gasps ] Good point.

[ Gasps ] O-okay. Who wants ice cream? Come on! Let’s, uh, go find a treat! Follow me! Yeah, that’s grandma’s way of giving them time to talk. Felicia: After you.

[ Door closes ] I thought you were coming over for dinner. It’s a little early. Yeah, I was. And I hope to still stay. Um, I don’t think georgie and james engineered my early arrival. I think the computer was truly buggy. Well, I-I’m glad it was. Glad? A cookie-fied laptop is no trifling matter. No, spinelli. I’m glad it was because it — it gives us a moment to talk. I didn’t want to say this in front of the kids, and I don’t want to put you on the spot, but… I miss having you here, too, and I would love it if you would move back in.

Michael, I thought you’d understand why it’s so important for drew to run. No, it’s okay, willow. I asked for michael’s opinion. I wanted to hear what he had to say. That’s what he has to say. And he’s pragmatic. He’s looking out for aurora. Looking out for me. This is what I need to hear. Mcconkey was already facing a real challenge from an opponent who’s had their ground game up and running for months. I mean, you’re — you’re late coming in. Drew has a name and his own money. His opponent will try and accuse drew of buying a congressional seat. Politics gets dirty. Opponents say anything. Yeah, speaking of — the opposition’s research is going to be daunting, so expect mudslinging that’s going to be very hard to shake off. I can handle that. And let’s not forget about mcconkey’s endorsement. That’ll only get drew so far. Look. Okay.

[ Sighs ] Worst case, you lose… and the wellness division’s roll-out is compromised and aurora is destabilized right when we were recovering from the stock inflation scandal. All sound arguments for why I shouldn’t run. You asked for my opinion. I just — I think you have more to lose than you do to win. I couldn’t disagree more. Josslyn: Blaze. Josslyn. How was your run? Ah. It was good. I had to let out some steam. Ha. I hear that. Nice seeing you. Good to see you. Hey, um, how’s kristina doing? She was doing better… until I let slip to molly about what happened between dex and sonny… and how kristina reacted. Molly is the last person kristina would want to worry about her. Welcome to the madness.

[ Exhales sharply ] I’m sorry that you’re pulled into it. Kristina’s worth it. I just… wish I had a better perspective about things weeks ago. And, in fact, I owe you an apology.

[ Scoffs ] For what? You were right about sonny. Blaze said that kristina witnessed sonny going after dex and just got all hysterical. And then I did some quiet checking with anna, and, yeah, sonny assaulted dex. I mean, apparently it would have been much worse if jason hadn’t pulled sonny off. And kristina witnessed the whole thing! It must have been terrifying for her. I imagine it was terrifying for dex, too, though he’s elected not to file charges, which is his own right. I can’t even worry about him right now. I’m just worried about kristina and the baby. She didn’t even call me! She hasn’t said a thing about it! If I hadn’t run into blaze, I wouldn’t know that she had some meltdown in the ladies’ room! She didn’t mention it to me. I-I’m sure she didn’t because she worried that I had too much going on. I don’t know if kristina is keeping quiet because I’m the A.D.A. Or because she doesn’t want me hovering, which, of course, is my natural instinct because she’s my sister and she’s carrying our baby! And now I’m tiptoeing around her boundaries. But what about mine? I mean, don’t I have a right to know about her emotional and physical state?! I understand. She should have told you. No I can’t even bring it up to her without risking setting her off, and so now I’m in this horrible position of having to choose whether to tell tj or hide it from tj, knowing full well that he will go straight to kristina if he knows, which will absolutely set her off, so what am i supposed to do? Sam said dad came looking for you yesterday, so I assume that’s why you wanted to talk to me? Yeah, he did, but that’s not why I’m here. I’m here for you — because you’re my sister and I love you. Sorry. I’ve just… been kind of a mess since the wedding. Well, yeah. You — nobody should be subjected to that. You shouldn’t have witnessed something like that. Dad tracked me down after, and he tried to justify it, but anything he said or ever says is never gonna make me forget that image. I-I just — he was hitting dex, and — and the blood was just, like, dripping down his face. And then he was yelling at dex that he was going to kill him — and jason. It was awful. Look. Dex is okay. I just talked to him. Well, I’m not okay. I’m all over the place. All I kept thinking about at first was just like, “this can’t be happening. This can’t be happening.” And then I was looking at him and I just kept thinking, “that can’t be my dad.” But it was. And look. I know that my dad has flaws. And I know that he’s, you know, hurt people, but not like that. Not, like, directly, physically like… or maybe he has. I don’t know. I don’t know. Just — the man that I saw, he was so ugly and — and full of rage and… I don’t know, dante. It was like he was, like, wearing a mask or something. Or maybe he’s been wearing a mask this whole time whenever he’s with me.

[ Sighs ] Look. It’s, um… it’s a complicated situation. But you’ve seen him like that before, haven’t you? When he shot you. Uh, no. Actually, he was quite the opposite. He was like a stone. Unemotional. It was like… shooting me was nothing. Except it wasn’t on purpose. It was an accident, right? T-that’s why he didn’t go to jail. Uh, no. No. I lied about that.

I never should have kicked you out. I overreacted. You were wonderful. The kids really miss you being here, and so do I. Will — will you move back in? I can’t believe I’m saying this, um, but I must respectfully and regretfully decline. Maxie… I love you. I don’t want to be roommates. I-I want to… I want us to be partners. I want to be a couple. Well, I do, too. Okay, well, then, how would this work? Would we — would we share a bedroom? I mean… are you ready for that? Uh, no, not yet, but I am open to that in the future. It’s just…the kids. Yes! No, no. Right. Georgie’s at the age where it could be awkward. Look, spinelli. I-I do want to be a couple, but I think we need to take things slowly. I mean, can’t we just be roommates for now? You can move back in — into the guest room. Or would that be too difficult if we’re not… “together, together”? Relax. I just want to talk to you. How’d you find me? You probably know by now I can find anybody I want to. You gonna invite me to sit down? I’m unarmed! I’m alone! You wanna frisk me? If this is an ambush and you came to finish the job, I won’t take it lying down. Noted. I heard you opted to keep what happened… in-house. I’m not in your house. Not anymore. No, I’m not filing charges, but I didn’t do it to help you. I did it to help kristina. It would have been bad for her. I appreciate that. That’s why I’m here. I just want to let you know that… as far as my part… this is over. Let’s just sit here and put our emotions on the side and put our lawyer caps on, okay? Mm-hmm. What’s the primary goal? A healthy baby. And how do we accomplish that? With a calm and centered kristina. And how are you going to assist in that? By not confronting her.

[ Groans ] Don’t rile her. What? So just tread lightly? Treat kristina like a minefield keeping me from my baby? As you know, I didn’t know sonny was my father when I was working undercover. But I got to meet you guys. And I fell in love with all of you. I mean, michael the fixer, morgan the wise ass, and you — you’re the princess. I felt like we were all family even before we knew we were. And I wasn’t gonna take him away from you. And I didn’t want to take him away from me, either. It’s, uh… it’s really hard growing up without a father. I mean, I had a lot of family. Look. They were great. They made a lot of noise at my little league games, but I — I didn’t hear that one voice that I always wanted to hear. And in the playground and in the street when kids are saying all sorts of things about my mom because we didn’t know who my father was, like… look, I gave as many bloody noses as I got, but I’d always say something stupid like, “you guys are gonna get it when my dad shows up.” But, um… he never did. And after a while, I stopped kidding myself that he ever would. So when I woke up at G.H. With a bullet hole in my stomach and lulu told me I had a father… …I justified not turning him in. For his kids. For you. But I’m one of his kids, too, so I did it for me, too. Finding out I had a father, that was a gift, and I wasn’t gonna give it back, no matter who he was. So I did what I had to do to keep my dad out of prison. I know that dex is keeping quiet because of me. And, honestly, part of me feels relieved that I don’t have to testify. But the other part of me is scared that I’m making everything worse.

Waited years for you, maxie. Suppose I’ve always been waiting for you. So, yeah.

[ Chuckles ] I can wait. As long as needed. So… you’ll move in… and we will date. Nothing would delight me more than being here with my family.

[ Door opens ] Felicia: We’re back!

[ Laughter ] We got you rocky road and birthday cake. What?! Those are your favorites, right? Yes! Yes, yes, yes! Dad, we’re bribing you. Please say you’re moving back in! I’m moving in.

[ Laughs ] Yay! Everyone is so tired of politics. Reason being, why bother? Why believe in someone? Most of the time. It’s ugly and people aren’t listening to each other, any more than the politicians are listening to the people. And congressman mcconkey was one of the rare ones, who actually tried to govern fairly. He didn’t suffer fools gladly, and he has hand-selected drew because he recognizes drew’s potential, his desire to make a difference, to serve the people. He’s a decorated war hero who has already served our country, a man of determination and strong character who can more than withstand any bad press the opposition might throw at him. And as for his wealth, no need to shy away from it because it’s actually proof that drew won’t have special-interest groups behind the scenes pulling the strings. And as for aurora, michael, you know you can handle it without drew. You’ve done it before. Whatever expansions are on the horizon, you’ll manage them. Because right now drew has something more important to do. Contributing to a functioning government is worth a few sacrifices. Wow. Maybe I should get you to be my campaign manager. I would say yes, but I want you to have someone who knows what they’re doing. Well, I gotta say, uh, you have convinced me. Yeah. Me too. I mean, I was on the fence, but… willow, you made me realize that I have an opportunity to make things better. And if I turn it down, it’s like I’m skipping out on my duty, and I can’t do that. So if I do this, I’m gonna need some help from you two. Yeah, you got it. We’re all-in. Yeah. Congressman cain. Hm. Aside from likening yoursister to an explosive device, you’re on the right track. Just tread lightly. All I can do now, I suppose. And I will serve as a buffer between her and sonny. No, mom, I don’t want you getting involved with sonny now. Trust me. I can handle him. I’m concerned about my girls. One needs to calm down, and the other needs to get some rest, ’cause you’re gonna need all your energy when you become a mom. I can handle anything if it means keeping this baby healthy. Yeah. And in a couple of months, I will not need to be relying on kristina anymore. When this baby comes, I am going to keep kristina and her drama far away. This is not on you. No. It’s not. This is on sonny. Okay, but what about tomorrow or the next day or the next year, or the next time that he does something like this? Then it is on me because I didn’t stand up and stop him when I had the chance. Okay. If that’s the way you want to be about it. If it’s gonna be on you… then it’s gonna be on me, too. I thought you were way out of line.

[ Chuckles ] Now I see you were just trying to warn kristina, make her see her father for who he is. I see how kristina could have illusions about sonny. But now the blinders are off… and she’s seen what he’s capable of with her own eyes. And a part of me really wishes she hadn’T… and that she was still safe in those illusions. It’s ironic, isn’t it? I’ll see you. This thing between us, this bad blood. It’s over. Just like that? You’re a distraction. A distraction I don’t need. I got more important things to deal with. You’re not one to back off a grudge. You don’t know me as well as you think you know me. As a matter of fact, I don’t — I don’t even want you to think about me at all. Please. You want to be a cop. Be a cop. You’re not worth my time and energy. You’re nothing to me now. For your sake… keep it that way.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Steffy: Yes, we are very excited to be working with you next season. I’ll have my father contact you personally about the fitting. All right. Ciao, mariella. Buona notte.

Hope: You wanted to see me?

Steffy: I did. Ah, could you please close the door? I’ll just get right to the point. We need to discuss hope for the future.

Bill: Do you know who luna’s father is? Could it be me?

Poppy: Yes, bill. It could be you. You might be luna’s father. Here.

Bill: Thanks.

Poppy: You must be tired. You were tossing and turning all night.

Bill: Well, can you blame me after what you told me yesterday? Your daughter could be my daughter.

Rj: Are you serious? That you wish that, you know, bill spencer could be your dad?

Luna: Yeah, I think about it sometimes.

Rj: Even though your mom denied it?

Luna: I mean, my mom and bill had just started reconnecting when I first brought it up. And don’t get me wrong, okay? I– I think about us a lot more often. But I don’t know. I can’t help but find myself wondering about bill. What that would be like, especially now that they’ve gotten so much closer.

Brooke: Hm. I do miss seeing you at the office, eric.

Eric: Yeah, you better. I’m glad to hear it. Although, I am enjoying myself here, taking my time, healing and spending time with donna. Planning a trip here and there, and allowing ridge and steffy to run the business for the time being.

Brooke: And they do. I mean, ridge grumbles about not having enough time to design.

Eric: He does.

Brooke: We all know how important it is for the two of you to spend time together.

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: But quite frankly, sis, I think you should spend some more time at the office again.

Eric: Actually, I think that’s a really good idea. I mean, you’ve contributed a lot to our success.

Brooke: Oh, well, thank you. But like you, I have taken a step back.

Eric: If that’s what you wanna do, that’s fine. But, um, we can always use your input.

Brooke: Well, I do miss having an active role at the business.

Eric: You’re a legend in the business. You really are. I mean, the belief formula alone, let alone brooke’s bedroom and the first men’s line, all of them innovations that we couldn’t have done without.

Donna: Oh, he is so right. If you wanna get back there, you should just go for it.

Brooke: I’m not sure how steffy would feel about that.

Katie: Hello, hello.

Donna: Hello. Oh, my gosh, you got my message. Thank you for coming.

Eric: The house is full of logans. Very nice.

Katie: Isn’t it nice? Oh, and since you’re both here, I wanna share a little news. I stopped by bill’s yesterday and met the new woman in his life.

Donna: Anyone we know?

Katie: Luna’s mother, poppy.

Rj: I just didn’t realize you still wondered about bill being your father.

Luna: Yeah, sometimes. You know, if he could be or what he’d be like. I know, I know it’s stupid. My mom already said that bill isn’t my dad, but then again, she said that about every guy in her past, so.

Rj: I don’t understand. Why has your mom been so secretive about who your father is?

Bill: Luna could really be my daughter.

Poppy: Are you absolutely sure that you’re not upset?

Bill: Upset, no– I told you last night, I’m not upset. I’m– I’m surprised. I mean, I asked you before and you didn’t want me to know?

Poppy: I was afraid.

Bill: Afraid of what?

Poppy: You and I hadn’t been seeing each other very long, and then luna and I were at odds. There was just a lot to consider. I raised luna on my own. We were a team. That’s how I raised her. I’m an independent woman and I never needed a man. Or so I thought. Until you.

Hope: Well, I can run back to the design office so you can see our newest designs.

Steffy: No, no, no, you don’t have to do that.

Hope: I– I thought you said this was about hope for the future.

Steffy: Yes, it’s current iteration. Look, rj and zende, they are great designers, but the collection hasn’t been the same since thomas left, so…

Hope: Well, I don’t disagree, but, uh, thomas also left in large part due to your interference, steffy. I have active psoriatic arthritis.

Steffy: No, no, no, no, no. Don’t blame me for what happened between you and thomas.

Hope: Well, I wasn’t the one who told him to leave town with douglas.

Steffy: You’re the reason why thomas left.

Hope: You know how much I miss them and how difficult this has been for me. Having to be a mother halfway across the world, having to hear the change in thomas’s voice on the phone.

Steffy: I know you’re dealing with a lot. That’s why I delayed this conversation with you.

Hope: About hope for the future?

Steffy: Yes.

Hope: Okay, well, I’ve already had this discussion with ridge and carter, and they both assured me that I would have the company’s support during this transitory time.

Steffy: That was then, but as co-ceo, it’s my job–

Hope: Steffy, do I need to remind you that you essentially were the one who packed thomas’s bags and shipped him to another country? I understand that we need results, but results take time. But I’m putting together an entirely new creative team here, and I would really appreciate some patience and understanding, but honestly, when it comes to you, steffy, you’ve never wanted to give that to me. Gosh, I have put up with it for so long, but honestly, enough is enough, steffy. I’m not going to let you mess with my life anymore.

Brooke: So, bill and poppy have known each other over 20 years?

Donna: And you have never heard of her before?

Katie: Apparently, they were just together that one night, and then they lost contact with each other until they randomly bumped into each other again. I mean, I– I have a lot of questions, but it didn’t really seem like the time. They didn’t seem like they were expecting company, and I don’t know, bill seems quite taken with her.

Eric: We all think the world of luna.

Donna: And if she’s anything like her mother, poppy must be lovely too.

Brooke: Luna is very much her own person.

Donna: Yeah, I wonder– I wonder actually if– if luna is getting to know bill, because if– if bill and poppy are getting close like this, it would make sense for them all to want to get along.

Eric: I can’t imagine a man as full of himself as bill is wanting to have any role in luna’s life.

Luna: Yeah, I don’t know. Like, I– I thought that it’d be different when I got older, like when I finally became an adult, she’d tell me who my dad is, but she’s actually become more reluctant to talk about it.

Rj: Well, you told her it won’t change your relationship with her.

Luna: Yeah, but maybe she doesn’t believe me. Or maybe she’s afraid that it will. Sometimes, it felt like she didn’t want someone coming in. You know, she don’t want someone interfering with our little family.

Rj: You said she dated, right?

Luna: Yeah, but it was nothing serious. Like they were nice guys, but there was no commitment.

Rj: I mean, maybe that’s just not poppy’s thing.

Luna: Or maybe if it was the right guy, the guy that she truly loved and loved her back.

Rj: Someone like bill spencer?

Bill: I– I guess what I couldn’t wrap my head around yesterday, and I’m still having a hard time with it today, is you didn’t want me to be luna’s father?

Poppy: No, it wasn’t that.

Bill: But then– then what? Because you obviously didn’t feel like you could be honest with me.

Poppy: It’s not a simple yes or no answer for me, bill. All right? Luna’s paternity is a very complex and emotionally charged question for me. And when you asked me a while back, I just– I got overwhelmed thinking about the fallout. I’ve never loved a man. I’ve only ever loved my daughter. She’s my everything. And I’ve only ever been completely committed to her and only her.

Bill: And that’s commendable. But poppy, if– if you thought that I was luna’s father, I mean, I told you how happy that would make me, how proud I would be.

Poppy: Please try to understand that I didn’t tell you the truth because I wasn’t ready to face it. My sister, li, has berated me for most of my life, calling me an opportunist, a gold digger. And I can only imagine how many women have crawled out of the woodwork claiming that you were the father of their children. I didn’t want you to judge me or think that I was one of them.

Bill: I know that you’re not.

Poppy: I didn’t want to think about luna’s father and what his presence could do for the life that I had made for us… until you came back into my life. Until I fell for you. My dry eye’s made me a burning,

Steffy: Hope, why are we making this personal? This is a business meeting.

Hope: Hope for the future is personal to me.

Steffy: And normally, I’d be all for that. I love the passion. I love the energy. But what you’re doing right now, it’S…

Hope: I’m– I’m not going to back down when it comes to my line or my team.

Steffy: Hope, this industry isn’t patient. It’s all about what’s new, what’s next. We keep it moving.

Hope: And I understand that we have hit a rough patch, but I am confident that we will be able to move past it.

Steffy: Well, as co-ceo, I’m not confident of that at all.

Brooke: Well, it’s nice to know that eric’s taking his recovery serious.

Donna: Yeah, yeah, he just, uh, loves his trainer. He always comes back so invigorated and…

Katie: I’m glad he’s taking care of himself.

Donna: My god, I just love my honey bear so much and I just want him to be as healthy as possible, you know? I mean, I usually go with him, but my sisters are here.

Katie: Oh, well, we don’t wanna keep you.

Donna: Are you kidding me? I wanna know everything you know about bill and poppy.

Katie: I’ve already told you everything I know about bill and poppy.

Brooke: You know how bill raises his children, how he’s been raising will. Maybe you have a different perspective.

Katie: That he would wanna be a part of luna’s life? I mean, I don’t know. Bill loves his sons, and he’s fiercely protective of them, but I don’t think that extends beyond his family.

Donna: Yeah, I– I agree. I mean, I can’t see bill being involved in luna’s life. And, I mean, come on. I mean, he’s good with his boys, but other people’s children? I don’t think bill spencer’s gonna be involved with luna.

Brooke: Well, with everything going on in luna’s life lately, I think she would be even less interested in this new man that her mother’s seeing.

Luna: I know you’re not bill spencer’s biggest fan.

Rj: No, I’m not. Honestly, my whole family feels that way, luna, and for good reason.

Luna: Okay, well, I don’t know what bill was like in the past, but he’s been really good to my mom. And he’s been nothing but kind and sweet to me.

Rj: Really? Bill spencer? Sweet?

Luna: Like, there was this one time, um, he came to the apartment, and I had just gotten into an argument with my mom, and he was really understanding. And he told me what it’s like to be a parent, and how he wanted the best for his kids. I couldn’t help but think to myself, like, “what would my life be like if I had a dad like that?” Because that bill is exactly the kind of man that I’d want as my father.

Poppy: You know, I’m not afraid of rejection. I like myself the way I am.

Bill: Well, there’s a lot to like. And I saw that the first time we met. So confident.

Poppy: I thought I saw something in you too, bill. And what we shared that night, it was like nothing I’d ever felt before. And I thought you felt the same. But then…

Bill: But then you never heard from me again. I’m sorry, poppy. I can see how much I hurt you.

Poppy: Well, there’s no need to apologize now, right? What we’ve shared, and reconnecting like this, it’s been amazing. It’s everything I thought it could be, and more.

Bill: I agree. And that’s why if there’s even the slightest chance that luna could be my daughter, I need to know. We both need to know. Moving forward withnode-positive breast cancer.

Hope: Steffy, hope for the future is one of forrester’s most impactful lines, and zende and rj are talented designers. You’ve said so yourself.

Steffy: Yes, they are. They are the next generation of forrester creations, but they could be working on more lucrative projects.

Hope: Well, our sales have been wonderful up until this point.

Steffy: Up until this point. A high-concept line? That has a lot of overhead. Marketing, materials, charitable affiliations. Look, I just don’t see hope for the future as one of my visions anymore for this company.

Hope: Your vision? Look, my team will prove themselves, okay? We just need time.

Steffy: I think your time is up, hope. That’s why I wanted to speak to you one-on-one. I didn’t wanna blindside you. I’m thinking about cutting hope for the future.

Donna: So, now that eric is gone, tell us how you really feel.

Katie: I’m just as honest around eric as I am with you.

Brooke: You said you were surprised to see bill with poppy.

Katie: Yeah, I didn’t realize he was seeing anyone.

Brooke: How do you feel about that?

Katie: I didn’t expect him to live like a monk, brooke. And as I told bill, he doesn’t answer to me.

Brooke: Would you like him to?

Katie: Would I have liked him to tell me that he was seeing someone, poppy or whoever? Yes, I would have liked that because I thought we had that kind of relationship, but I don’t know. I– I will always love bill. You know, not just because he’s will’s father, but because we’ve meant a lot to each other and do I see a future with him? I don’t know. I do have to say though, luna’s mother, I’m not so sure about her.

Luna: I don’t know why I’m acting like this. I mean, it’s stupid to go on and on about bill being my father because he isn’T.

Bill: If luna is my daughter, I will stand by her and you. You will both have a special place in my life, poppy.

Poppy: I was right about you. You are the most wonderful man.

Bill: Well, let’s see if you’re right about the rest of it. You know what we have to do, poppy? We need to know.

Poppy: Yes. Thank you. This is what I was afraid of. Opening up. I love you, bill. And I loved you from the moment I first saw you.

Bill: Let’s do it now. Today. Let’s find out if luna’s my daughter. A daughter. I could have a daughter.

Poppy: Yes, you could have a daughter.

Bill: Wow.

Alrighty, what did you end up getting? Well, I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.

Do you think that Jude Or like This? Well, I think he’s gonna love it. And I also think that I just One upped you. You went upside down, Pete. Uh, best grandma in the galaxy. And that you are. Oh, darling. I think I’ll have some dinner. Grandchildren determine that. Yeah, well, speaking of that, Eric and Sue should have been here already with our newest grandchild.

You’re right. I wonder what’s going on. I’ll, uh, Maybe I’ll just be there if you call. Alright, let me see if I can get our table ready. Oh, perfect. Thank you, honey.

Okay, table for four and a half is waiting. We’re not going to need it.

What’s, uh, what’s going on? Eric just texted me. They’re not coming. Something is wrong.

Oh, yeah. Mm hmm. This is great. So thanks for meeting me here. Well, thanks for inviting me. It’s always great hanging out with you. You know, I gotta say, it feels really good to be back here at the good ol Brady Pub. You miss it, do you? The food, yes. I’ll tell you what I don’t miss. It’s a racket from every Tuesday night karaoke.

Oh, I bet. So are you off duty for the night? Uh, actually I’m not, so I’m gonna have to leave soon, so I only have time for a quick dinner, unfortunately. Ah, boo hoo. Yeah. You’re working late, huh? Yeah, you know, we’re shorthanded at the station. I mean, Harris came back for medical leave, but then when he came back, he immediately asked for more days off.

Is he okay? Yeah, I mean he’s physically cleared for duty, but I don’t know what’s going on in his head. And from what I’ve seen, he likes to play things pretty close to the vest. So he just asked Brave for a couple of extra days off? Yeah, unpaid leave. Did he say why he needed those days? He didn’t. And it’s safe to say that he’s not somewhere on a beach with an umbrella drink.

So I see you decided to spring for the Buffalo Bill room. Was the Roy Rogers room already booked? It’s, uh, trout season here in Montana. We were lucky to get this room. Oh. Hey. Hey, guys. Lucas. They’re, uh, bringing in a rollaway for me. Where do you want them to put it?


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

Now obviously you two lovebirds can have the big bed and I’ll just put my little tiny cot in this little tiny western room somewhere. What is this, trout season? Yeah, yeah, it is. So we’re lucky, apparently, that we’re not sleeping in the car. I just don’t want to cramp your style as well. This is not a romantic getaway.

Um, we’re here to catch Clyde. I just don’t want to be the third wheel. I hate that. Lucas, I brought you as a driver and a lookout. And I appreciate that. I do, and I’m going to do my part. I’m going to make sure that Clyde ends up in that, that cage right where he belongs, you know? So no one else gets hurt, you know, including you.

We lock Clyde back up, and you get your permanent release. Yeah, yeah, that would be nice, wouldn’t it? Except, uh, I will miss the make your own Sunday bar.

It’s an inside thing. Don’t worry about it. What’s the plan?

So even though you’re shorthanded at the station, Rafe still let Harris take those extra days off? Harris wasn’t going to take no for an answer, apparently. The man’s intense. He is ex Navy SEAL. Yeah.

You worried about something? Yeah, I’m always worried about something.

It’s Ava. She’s not around, and I’m assuming Harris is with her. Wherever Eva Vitale goes, trouble is sure to follow. Yeah, well, Harris is a big boy. He can take care of himself. Yeah, I guess he can.

You’re worried about something else too, aren’t you? You know me too well. I’ve known you all my life. I’m worried about my daughter. Okay, banana nut muffin and, uh, vanilla lattes. Hey, you remembered. Of course I did. Oh.

Sorry, once again. Hi Marlena. Chad, I’m trying to reach Eric and he’s not answering his phone. Is he at work today? No, I haven’t seen him. But he did send me a text earlier saying that a feature he was working on was on hold for a few days. I see. Um, I don’t know. It could be because of what happened with Everett at the bar.

So maybe he’s trying to keep his distance from the spectator for a little while. Did you hear what happened? I did. I did. Um, if you, uh, if you hear from him, would you ask him to please call me? Yeah, I will do. Take care, Marlena. You too.

Eric is not at work. Okay, maybe you can try slow.

What is it? What’s going on? Our number has been disconnected. Disconnected. Ah, that’s strange. That is strange, and it’s also alarming. I don’t like this, uh, uh, There’s something going on. Let’s find out what.

Hey, Eric, you in there, buddy? Where, where could he be? His car is downstairs, so is Sloan’s.

Eric, there you are. We’ve been so worried about you. Apparently for good reason. What’s happened, darling? Everything.

Stephanie told Kayla and me that Everett gave Eric Brady a black eye at the small bar. It was a misunderstanding. Really? He was arrested for assault. I’m sure the charges are gonna be dropped. You know what? I can, uh, I can get a hold of that police report. I can read it myself. But I have a feeling something else is going on here.

Isn’t that right, Jada? Steve, listen, given our history, um, I really hope that you can understand if I really just don’t want to get into Everett’s personal life and his business. I do understand, but the guy is dating my daughter. He were once married to him. So I need to know one thing. Is Everett Lynch a violent man?

Look, during the time that we were together, he never raised his hand to me. I don’t think he’ll hurt Stephanie. Not like that. Wow. Ah, there’s still something you’re not telling me. Listen, Stephanie knows what she’s getting into. You know, where are our burgers at? Gosh, you know, it looks like they’re shorthanded here too.


Oh! There you go. Thanks. So, we were able to track Clyde, or Goldman, or whoever downloaded the photos to a local library. Right. That’s why we’re here in the middle of nowhere in the woods, risking getting mauled by bears or eaten alive by mosquitoes. I get it. Yeah, that’s exactly why, and I think it’s worth the risk in my book.

I think it’s worth the risk too. But, if you, if you both know that Clyde is here, why didn’t you just call the FBI? Because I want to deal with that son of a bitch myself. I get it man, it’s personal for you. It’s personal for all of us.

Sloan took Nicole and EJ’s baby? Jude is their son? Not mine. Oh, darling, I’m so sorry. Sorry too, kid. Well, I imagine what you’re going through right now. So, Sloane’s on the run, huh? Yeah, she took off when I took Jude back to Nicole and EJ. I should have never left her alone. No, it wasn’t your fault. You were in shock.

I did the right thing, taking that little bitch. Boy back to his real parents. What can we do for you right now? I just want to be alone. Um,

don’t worry, I’m not gonna drink. No one thought you were. When’s the last time you ate? Since I found out. Okay, well. We’ll get you some supper.

I’m sorry about all the questions. I promise you I didn’t invite you to dinner to interrogate you about my daughter’s love life. You’re a concerned dad. That’s I get it. I am a concerned dad. But I have to be careful that that concern doesn’t cross the line into interference. Stephanie really hates that.

As you can imagine. Yeah. Stefan’s lucky. You know, I really wish that my dad was still here. Giving me grief about my life choices. I miss him every day. I miss my homeboy Marcus too. And he would be so proud of you. You know that, right? Yeah, you’ve told me that more than once. And I’m going to keep on telling you.

And hey, if you want me to step into that role, I can grill you about your, uh, boyfriends, people you date, and give you unsolicited advice. I’m good. I will say one thing on the record. Ray Fernandez is a good guy. He’s a great guy. Yeah, he is. And he’s not just my boyfriend. He’s also my boss. So I need to hurry up and eat this and get back to work soon.

Go ahead. Hey, your bun is different than mine. Yeah, it’s gluten free. Why eat it if it doesn’t taste good? This brand does. You know, I told Roman about it when I was living up here. It’s the one good thing that, um, Rebecca Goldman did when she was at the PD. What’s that? Oh, she just told me about this, like, niche bakery that she found online.

And they sell these buns. Goldman has celiac disease, so it’s the only bread that she can eat. Is that right?

So you think that Weston and his girlfriend are the ones who downloaded the photos? Yeah, I reached out to a librarian here in town, I texted her the photos of both of them, and she was very happy to cooperate. Well, did they give a positive ID? She thinks it’s Goldman. Did she say she saw Clyde? No, and it’s no surprise that Clyde’s laying low given his high profile escape from Statesville.

Oh. I guess that makes sense. So the librarian, the woman she saw, she said, came in and out of the library a lot in the past few weeks to use the computer. Yeah, and Rafe got a tip from the APB that he put out that Clyde was spotted here some time back. Well, did the local police follow up? They said it was a false lead.

Maybe it was. Or maybe it wasn’t. Or maybe Clyde’s got the local police in his pocket like he does everybody else. Yeah, wouldn’t surprise me. But you know what? Either way, we can handle this without their involvement. Yeah. This town isn’t very big. If Clyde and Goldman are here, we’ll find them. It’s really not like Eric to go AWOL.

I mean, Marlena sounded really worried. I’m sure he’s okay.

Everything okay? You keep checking your phone, you kind of seem like, uh, you know, a little, uh, out of space. Is that why you wanted to meet here and not the spectator? Yeah, it is, actually. I didn’t want Everett to walk in on us. Why? Because of what happened with Eric? Were you afraid he’s gonna slug me in the face?

No, no. I’m, um, I’m worried about him in general. He’s just so unpredictable right now. Well, I thought we made it pretty clear that we’re just friends. We did. But But? Seth, come on, let’s go. Hit me with it.

Marlena thinks that Everett has DID. Oh. And I don’t want to violate his privacy, and it feels wrong to speculate about his or anyone’s mental health, but He’s acting so out of character lately. Like Katie and Eric? Yes. And Jada said that he came on to her in the holding cell. He insisted that he wasn’t Everett Lynch, that he was Robert Stein.

He was a totally different person. And then it was like someone flipped a switch and he went right back to being Everett again. So Bobby Stein isn’t, isn’t a pseudonym, it’s a, it’s a distinct identity. Right. I wish I would’ve, I wish I would’ve seen it sooner. None of us did. No, but I, I should’ve. Yeah. I mean, I went through it with Abby.


I can’t, I’m not even hungry. Honey, you’ll feel better if you eat something. No, I doubt that. Mom, will you just do me a favor and tell the rest of the family? Of course I will. Come on Harry, come eat. Food’s a weapon. Look, you and Nicole are good friends. And I’m sure she’s gonna find a way so you can still be part of that little boy’s life.

I can’t. Nicole and EJ are together and Judith Judith’s her son. I need to stay away. I have to stay away.

I’m so sorry, I shouldn’t have brought this up. No, no, no, it’s fine. You weren’t even here when she was sick. But my parents filled me in. It wasn’t like it was a family secret. I know that she suffered from the same illness that Marlena thinks Everett has and that she would people. Yeah, Gabby and Dr Laura.

I also knew she made a full recovery. She did. Y was, I was very proud of h from the illness from D. I It was, yeah. Which Kind of makes me second guess my, uh, my position. On what?

Look, Steph, I know you’re not one to run away from trouble. But, you know, if Everett has DID, it’s gonna be a rough ride.

Are you sure you’re up for that?

Everett? Excuse me.

Dr. Evans? Hi. We’ve been looking all over for you. Who’s we? Stephanie. Me. I’ve been around, you know. I’ve just been walking around. Are you okay? I’ll be fine. You haven’t, uh, answered your phone. I’ve left you several messages. Stephanie has too. Yeah, well, um, I’m sorry. I lost battery this morning. I didn’t have a charger.

So why? What is so important? I want to talk to you about what happened last night.

So you think that Weston and his girlfriend are still here? Yeah, the librarian believes she saw Goldman this afternoon and she was printing out a lot of pages. Right, images from the book. Right. So how are we going to figure out where they’re staying? That’s tough. Yeah. Yeah, well, it’s not likely they’re staying on one of the motels given the demand for lodging here.

Oh, you mean because of trout season? Right. I mean, they probably have a place out in the woods somewhere. Well, Clyde is a country boy, you know, he’s from the Ozarks. Probably have no problem staying in the woods for a while, but we’re city folk man that puts him at a distinct advantage Don’t you think but he does send his girlfriend for errands?

So most likely she’s gonna have to come to town for food and supplies. We follow her. She leads us to Clyde Then what we turn him over to the FBI, right? When you said we were looking for a more permanent solution to the Clyde Weston problem Did you mean what I think you meant?

He tried to kill my son. Our son. He needs to pay.

That’s the plan.

And now I’ve got to get back to work. You know, Rafe wants me to take a look at Harris caseload in case there’s something immediate that needs my attention while he’s gone, doing whatever he’s doing. Ah, ah, ah, ah. Put your wallet away. Your money’s no good when you’re eating with me. That’s a rule with all my kids.

Are you sure? You know, Roman chart is extra for the gluten free buns. I don’t care. Surrogate Papa pays. Okay, Papa Steve. Well, thank you, and it was so great talking with you. You too. We should do this more often. Yeah. And we have to set a date for that dinner with you and Rafe, huh? Oh, we do. We’ll do that soon, okay?

Definitely. Yeah. Well, tell Kayla I said hi and give her a big hug for me. I will. Okay. Now you give me a big hug. No, no, no. Bye. Oh, babe. Okay. Okay. Bye bye.


Alright, Ava. Harris. Thanks to Jada, I might have an idea how to find you.

We’ve gone over this, haven’t we? I went out with Stephanie and Leo to blow off some steam. We went to a bar, I had a few too many drinks, I blacked out, you know? Which is why you don’t remember punching Eric. I don’t.

Excuse me.

Eric, hi. Um, I owe you a huge apology. Look, I don’t remember exactly what happened last night, okay? I might have blacked out a little bit. But, from what I understand, I think, I, I, I owe you an apology. I assume that because I saw you and Sloane fighting, I, I misunderstood what you were doing, alright? I thought you were trying to hurt her.

Which, by all accounts, doesn’t make any sense, because apparently, you’re a great guy, and, and she’s your wife and you love her. So, anyway, I’m, I’m sorry. I want you to know I’m, I’m sorry. Eric? Eric? I got this. Okay. What, did, did I say something wrong? No, he’s not upset with you. I every right to be. Well, John will take care of her.

Right now I want to talk about you. Look, I know that you’re concerned about losing time. And I know that I’m not your therapist anymore, but I would like to help you with that. Would you let me?

Look, I know it must be very challenging dealing with someone who’s mentally ill. Yeah, you really have no idea until you live with it. Right. I get that. I have a history with Everett. I care about him. So How can I just turn my back on him? Especially knowing he’s not well. I mean, it just abandoned him because he’s got this terrible illness.

Wouldn’t it be the more honorable way to go to show him support? To help him get the help he needs? Sure, if he wants the help. He went to Marlena for therapy. Yeah, but then he decided he didn’t need it. From what you said. Look, I know from, I know from personal experience that there can be A ton of resistance when it comes to DID.

Everett may, may want help, sure. But for Bobby Stein? It might take a hell of a lot for him to admit that there is a problem.

Abigail was lucky you were there for her. Yeah, I wasn’t there for her enough. Why do you say that?

She’s not here, is she? Chad, you’ve gotta stop blaming yourself.

I’m gonna say to you again what I’ve said to you many times before. What Julian has said, what everyone who cares about you has said, Clyde Weston is the only one responsible for Abigail’s death. And I’ll be brought to hell.

So, pretty small cop. Well, I’m a small guy, so it’ll work. Beats my bunk at Statesville, or my bed at the monastery. That was the worst bed ever. I hated that. Anyway, um, while we wait for info on Clive, maybe we should, I don’t know, get something to eat or something? What do you think? Yeah, I think our options here are going to be pretty limited, you know?

And I think everyone goes to bed here early, so. Oh, great. Well, desperate times call for desperate measures. Look what I got from the airport. Uh, this is elk jerky. This is really good. Come on. We can all share it. No, I don’t have anything. Portion. Come on, Harrison. No, I’m going to hold off on the elk jerky.

Um, saw a gas station at the edge of town. I think they had a convenience store. Oh, right. I saw the signs. They had guns. And, uh, ammo. And fireworks. And bait. Oh, guys, but I had bait for lunch. Oh, yeah. I’m sure they have something else that’s edible. Should we check it out? Yeah, we might as well. Alright, you know what?

Why don’t you guys go and I’ll just stay here and hold down the fort. Okay, just be careful. You be careful. Watch out for bears. I think the bears need to watch out for him. We’ll be fast.

Yeah, hello? Ava. Steve. How’d you find me? Well, that’s what I do for a living. I find people who don’t want to be found. So listen, you know, service at the pub has really slacked off since you decided to take a few days off to deal with personal business. Coincidentally, Harris, uh, took some time off to do the same thing.

You want to tell me what that was? Well, it’s called personal business because, well It’s personal. I know you’re both in Montana to look for Clyde Weston. And I’m coming out there to join you.

Look, I appreciate you offering to help, but, you know, Harris and I have got this. Uh, I’m not so sure about that. And as I said, I’m pretty good at finding people who don’t want to be found. So is Harris. Well, I think he would appreciate some assistance. You’re acting like you don’t trust me. Oh, it’s not an act, Ava.

You lie to me so much. And you just lied to John and me when you enlisted us to break Clyde Weston out of prison. I did what I needed to do to save my son. Our son. You’re not going to talk me out of this. I’m coming out there. Steve, this is a small town. You know that Clyde’s got eyes and ears everywhere.

You know, he’s probably got the local police already in his pocket. So if you and John show up here, that’s going to increase the chances of him being tipped off. That we are already on his trail. Come on. Look, I know. I know that you do not trust me, and I get that. It’s fine, alright? But you can trust Harris.

He’s just like you. He always does the right thing. Well, I have no problem trusting Harris. But, uh, you know, you have a tendency to get people to do things they wouldn’t have otherwise done. So let me do this. Okay? Let me do this for Tripp, for Wendy, for Abigail, for all the people that Clyde has hurt. Okay.

But you have to keep me in the loop, starting right now. Do you have any leads? Someone saw Goldman in town. Good. When? Today. Okay, so you find her, lead you straight to Weston. Yeah, that’s the plan. I think I can help with that. I found out that Rebecca Goldman only eats one brand of gluten free bread. Yeah, well, she’s going to have a hard time finding anything like that out here.

Well, that’s what I thought, but I found out that that company ships their product all over the world. You call the business? Yeah. They have a weekly shipment to a P. O. box in Ennis, Montana. And the first shipment went out to a Faith Silvers a week after Clyde Weston broke out of prison. Dammit, Steve, why did you wait so long to tell me?

When is the next shipment scheduled to arrive? Tomorrow. Okay. I’ll tell Harris. Ava, be careful. I don’t want to see Chip get his heart broken if something happens to his mother. I don’t want you coming home in a body bag. Yeah, well Don’t you worry, Steve.

You know that I can take care of myself. Okay. Goodbye for now. And you keep me in the loop. Yeah, I promise I will.

Don’t worry, Steve. The only person coming home from Montana in a body bag He’s Clyde. Hey babe, what’s up? How’d it go with dinner? You eatin something? I, I think we did good. Yeah, so they did have something at the convenience store, huh? Oh yeah, they had a great selection. Yeah, I hope you’re ready for slushies and flaming hot cheese puffs.

Oh wow, well, my mouth is just watering thinking about it. There you go. Digging it up. I’m sorry about that. The last thing I want is an apology from Everett. Hey, I get it. I get that. I’m just trying to wrap my head around the fact that Jude is Nicole’s baby. I know when

you were about this tall. I had to give you and Sammy back to Roman. So I sort of know what you’re You’re going through right now. And you two were just little squirts and I had you for years. No, but speaking for myself, By still staying in your life. By still loving you even though you weren’t mine. Over the, over the years that pain just kind of went away.

I’m glad you made that choice back then. I’m glad I could have you now. You can make that choice for Jude right now. No, I’m not sure about that. Why? What are you worried about? EJ won’t allow it? I mean, that’s part of it, mostly. It’s the last thing that I want to do is make Nicole’s life any harder. I appreciate you looking out for me, Dr.

Evans, but I think I’ve made myself very clear. I do not want your help. We’re worried about you, Everett. And Stephanie paid your bail. You haven’t even called her. I told you. My phone died. We both know that’s not true.

We also both know that there’s something that’s not right with you. And I think you’re afraid to talk to anybody that might confirm that. This conversation is over. Please stay away from me.

Dr. Evans, hello. I just ran into Everett, in the square. Did he say where he’s been? Uh, no, it’s pretty clear that he’s been avoiding people. He, he walked into the Salem Inn. How is he? Oh, well, he did apologize to Eric. Uh, but then I told him how concerned we all were about him, and he got really upset.

Agitated. So he’s still refusing help? Yeah, it seems that way. Look, I would like to meet with, uh, with you and, um, Stephanie and see if we can’t create an intervention. Whatever you think we can do to help Everett, I’m in.

Yeah, Everett’s lucky to have you in his corner. I know, uh, I know he doesn’t have much of a support system. He doesn’t. I feel kind of bad for being a jerk to him in the beginning. Maybe I should have taken the higher road. You apologized for that and he forgave you. Well, you know, if you’re going to be there for Everett, I want you to know that I will be there for you.

Thank you, Chad. It’s Jada. Everett’s okay. Well, that’s good news. Yeah, it is. She also texted that. Marlena wants to stage an intervention. Okay. Alright. Well, if you need any help, you let me know. I will. Thank you, Chad. Thank you for listening and um, for caring. Of course. Back at you. Bye.

Steve. Any leads on where Clyde is? I don’t know. I can’t tell you anything yet, Chad. Except that Harris Michaels is on the case. And I’m confident that he’s gonna bring Weston back. Dead? Or alive?

I don’t think I have to tell you which one I prefer.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Claire: Are you mom-spying? Is that what this is?

Victoria: Maybe. I am a little. Cute and healthy recipes for kids. That’s an interesting search choice.

Claire: I didn’t get a chance to tell you last night. You’re looking at harrison abbott’s new nanny.

Victoria: Oh, I am?

Claire: Summer changed her mind. She decided to give me a trial run. Hence my search for adorable snacks.

Victoria: That’s wonderful. You should be proud.

Claire: I’m really excited. Harrison’s the best and I’m really grateful for this opportunity.

Victoria: Is there something else?

Claire: It’s all a little bit nerve-wracking. Small kid means big responsibility. Summer’s been wary of me. So she’s gonna keep a very close eye on me.

Victoria: She has no reason to doubt your abilities.

Claire: I really wanna earn her trust. Make a good impression. Really just be the best nanny ever.

Victoria: You’ll be great. You will do all of that without putting so much pressure on yourself.

Claire: You’re my mother, don’t you have to say that?

Victoria: No, I mean it. Look, you’re very smart. You’re capable. Just follow your instincts. Everything will fall into place. Hello. Hi.

Cole: Hey, hey.

Victoria: Hi cole, come in, I-

Cole: Hey.

Victoria: This is a surprise.

Victor: Hi sweetheart.

Victoria: Seeing the two of you here together. Hi, good morning!

Cole: Ah, nice to see you. I’m glad you’re here, both of you.

Claire: Yeah, it’s great to see you too. But what’s up with the drop by? Is everything all right?

Victor: Have you seen your mother?

Victoria: No, not since this morning. Has something happened?

Victor: There’s some news regarding jordan.

Jack: Hi there.

Nikki: Jack, is now a bad time?

Jack: No, no, no. Come on in, come on in. I just didn’t expect to see you so soon. You look wonderful.

Nikki: Thanks. I just got back yesterday. I finished my initial treatment at the rehab facility and they approved me for outpatient care. So I’m home.

Jack: Well, that’s great news. Sounds like you’ve made real progress.

Nikki: I still have a ways to go, but I will get there.

Jack: Yes, you will. I have no doubt about it. And you look terrific. You look rested and strong and it’s all over your face.

Nikki: Well, it wasn’t easy to go away, but it was necessary. I realized that I needed more significant help.

Jack: I’m glad you made that choice for yourself.

Nikki: I didn’t get there on my own. You helped me get there. You are the reason why I am back on the right path.

Chelsea: Adam, I’m almost ready. I just have to– hi, it’s you.

Billy: It’s me.

Chelsea: What are you doing here? Oh, I’m so happy to see you. But you were away on business. I didn’t expect you back so soon.

Billy: Well, I cut my trip short because you’re more important. Wanted to see you before you head off to see connor.

Chelsea: That’s so sweet.

Billy: Mm-hmm. Thought you could use a little extra encouragement and support.

Chelsea: Well, you didn’t have to drop everything and fly home for me. We were calling and texting every day. You could’ve reassured me over the phone.

Billy: Yeah, that’s true. But I can’t do this over the phone.

Sally: Morning.

Adam: Oh, man. You just ruined my brilliant plan.

Sally: Sorry.

Adam: I was gonna bring you up coffee and pastries. Give you the breakfast in bed treatment.

Sally: Well, aren’t you just the best host? Were you able to get back to sleep last night?

Adam: Eventually, yeah. Thanks for staying up with me.

Sally: You’re worried about your son. It’s understandable.

Adam: Having you here makes things easier. With you around, everything’s better. Um, but now that you’re awake, we can have some breakfast.

Sally: Uh, wait a minute. I think we should talk about your offer. Auntie, you can’t put that right in the dishwasher. Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Adam: Look, about last night, I hope that I did not put too much pressure on you when I asked you to move in with me.

Sally: I mean, it is a big step.

Adam: I know. And, you know, if it’s– it’s too much pressure, I completely understand. You know, it as kinda spur the moment.

Sally: So, what are you– what are you saying? That you changed your mind? You don’t want me to live with you?

Adam: Look, I don’t know what you’re thinking. So I will just be honest with you. I do want you to move in. It’s been on my mind for a while. But first and foremost, I want you to be happy. So if this is not what you want, just say it.

Sally: Okay, okay, okay. I’m gonna put you out of your misery.

Adam: Please.

Sally: My answer is yes. I will move in with you.

Adam: You will?

Sally: Mm-hmm.

Adam: Are you sure?

Sally: Yes, yes. I’m ready. I’m ready, and– and I think it’s time.

Adam: Oh, thank god. Oh, thank god.

Billy: So how’s your head right now?

Chelsea: Uh, kind of all over the place. This is the first time we’re gonna see connor since he went to the facility. I mean, we attempted to before, but it was a complete disaster.

Billy: But he’s in a better headspace now, and he’s ready to see you in person.

Chelsea: Yeah, that’s what he says.

Billy: Great.

Chelsea: That’s what he says. And, um, the doctors agree. So we’re gonna meet with him in a controlled environment to make sure he feels safe and secure.

Billy: Sounds like a recipe for success.

Chelsea: I hope so. I’m just torn. I– part of me feels hopeful. The other part feels absolutely terrified.

Billy: Yeah. Well, you’ve been through a lot. All of you have, especially connor. And I just wanna be here to help in any way I can.

Chelsea: Well, just being here with you right now, it’s everything.

Billy: If the best thing I can do is hold your hand and tell you that you got this, then that’s what I’ll do. You got this, chels.

Nikki: We didn’t get a chance to talk before I went away about what happened in the hotel suite.

Jack: Yeah, it was one hell of a night, wasn’t it?

Nikki: Are you all right? Please tell me that you haven’t used since then.

Jack: Yeah, I’m fine. I’m fine. Honest. Gone to a few meetings, checked in with myself. No urge to take pills.

Nikki: Oh, thank god. I have gone over that night so many times. My mind, my spiral. How cruel I was to you.

Jack: Nuh-huh.

Nikki: And ultimately what you did to finally wake me up.

Jack: It was a calculated risk.

Nikki: You sacrificed your sobriety for mine.

Jack: I was desperate. I would’ve done anything to save you.

Nikki: Well, jack, what you did was very dangerous and you went too far.

Jack: Believe me, I have done my share of soul searching on that. And I’ve had to admit that my actions were too extreme. Things could’ve gone very differently.

Nikki: Oh, my god. When you passed out, it was like my whole world stopped. I– I was frozen in time. But I guess it took that to make me realize how far you had gone to bring me back from the brink.

Jack: I honestly thought I’d lost you.

Nikki: Well, what you did was the stupidest and bravest thing anybody has ever done for me.

Jack: Well, you’ve done the courageous part now. You dug deep, got yourself out of that hole. You went to rehab. You’re doing the work now.

Nikki: And I will continue to. I can’t afford to be cavalier. I’m still an alcoholic. I always will be. But I’m better than I was, thanks to you.

Jack: And this outpatient treatment’s working for you?

Nikki: So far, yes. But I still need a sponsor. I hope it’s not too much to ask that that still be you.


Jack: I am here for whatever you need. You need me to be your sponsor, that’s what I will be.

Nikki: You have been my rock. I don’t know what I would do without you.

Jack: You’re one of the strongest people I know. You’re strong, you’re smart, you’re kind, you’re loyal. Is it any wonder everyone’s so devoted to you?

Nikki: Well, even though I don’t deserve it.

Jack: No, give yourself more credit than that. Every time you’re knocked down, you end up stronger.

Nikki: Thanks to you. And I am so grateful, more than you’ll ever know. Hi, victor. All right, I’ll be there soon. Bye, darling. I am needed at the ranch.

Jack: Okay, go, um… call me if you need anything.

Nikki: Thank you, jack. Thank you so much for everything.

Jack: Here.

Nikki: Ooh, diane, nice to see you.

Diane: You too, nikki. Glad you’re looking so well.

Nikki: Thank you. You two have a good day.

Jack: Well, that was a surprise. Nikki’s home. She’s in outpatient treatment.

Diane: With you as her sponsor? Why would you agree to that without talking to me first?

Jack: Because I didn’t think you would have any objection.

Diane: Oh, really? Or did you think I’d just let it slide?

Jack: Wait, diane–

Diane: No, no, the facts haven’t changed. Your role in nikki’s sobriety caused you to risk your own.

Jack: That’s the past. It won’t happen again.

Diane: That’s right, it won’T. Otherwise, you and i are going to have a problem.

Adam: I present to you your keys with a little stylish button for decoration because fashion is your thing.

Sally: Well, that is adorable. Thank you.

Adam: Mm-hmm. And if there’s something you don’t like, poof, it is gone. Okay? Bring in new pillows, lamps, whatever you like. Okay, you wanna paint? Just have at it. You want new wallpaper? Okay, fine.

Sally: I– I really don’t think that’s necessary. I really love this place as is.

Adam: Hey, I mean, I live with a designer now who has impeccable taste. So I want this place to be yours. It’s our home. Together.

Sally: Wow, I haven’t had many places I could call home.

Adam: Oh, we can build one. Welcome home, baby.

Nikki: Hey, I got here as soon as I could. What’s going on?

Victor: Hello, sweetheart. Come here. Um, there’s something I have to tell all of you. Please sit down.

Nikki: Victor, please just tell us what has happened.

Victor: I was informed by my security team that they found jordan on the banks of the garewood river. And cole was there when they told me.

Nikki: Thank god.

Victor: Apparently, she was barely breathing. In other words, she was alive.

Nikki: What?

Victoria: No, it can’t be. Well, where is she now?

Victor: They took her into custody. And apparently, she was just spewing nonsense, babbling. Taken her in for mental and physical examination.

Cole: With maximum security measures in place.

Claire: We thought we were free of her, but all this time she’s still been out there.

Victoria: Mom, are you okay?

Nikki: I had assumed that she was gone forever, that she could never be a threat to us again.

Victor: And she won’T. I don’t want you to worry about that, okay? Really, don’T.

Victoria: I’m grateful that she’s in custody, but–

Claire: But she’s found a way out before.

Cole: Well, the authorities are fully aware of the danger she’s capable of. She’s been sent to the highest maximum security prison there is.

Victor: By the way, that’s from a place that no one has ever escaped from.

Nikki: You know, there’s something very strange about this.

Victor: What?

Nikki: You said that she was chased by your men and fell into the river.

Victor: Yeah.

Nikki: So how did she survive that fall? And how did she stay alive all this time? Your heart is the beat of life.

Adam: Hey, I didn’t know you were back in town. Chelsea told me you were gone on business.

Billy: I was, but I know that you’re gonna see connor, so I wanted to be here to support chelsea.

Adam: Ah, that’s very generous of you.

Billy: Well, chelsea said that you’ve been a big support while I’ve been gone. You’ve been reasonable and steadfast and determined.

Adam: It’s a big surprise coming from me, huh?

Billy: Guess what I’m trying to say is good on you, adam.

Adam: Well, thank you. We’re gonna get through this together.

Chelsea: That’s the plan. I guess we should go, huh?

Adam: Yeah, the, uh, jet’s all fueled up.

Chelsea: Okay, please tell victor I said thank you again.

Adam: I’ll give you two a minute.

Chelsea: Oh, you know, you’re pretty wonderful, you know that?

Billy: Well, you can tell me that when you get back. Right now, you focus on your son.

Chelsea: I really believe sending him to this facility was the best thing for him. I do.

Billy: Good. You trust that feeling, okay? And just know that you’re on the right trajectory and that you need me for anything at all, let me know, okay? I’m always here for you no matter what.

Chelsea: Thank you.

Billy: Okay. Have a good flight.

Chelsea: Okay.

Victor: How did jordan survive? Well, I would say out of pure evil, as she always has.

Nikki: She should be at the bottom of the river. On second thought, drowning is too good for her. I would prefer for her to suffer.

Cole: Well, jordan will spend the rest of her life in prison with no power, no control.

Claire: Till she rallies and tries to come after us again.

Victor: It’s not gonna happen, okay? She will never bother our family again.

Nikki: I pray you’re right.

Victor: I assure you that jordan will not cause any more damage.

Chloe: Any updates?

Sally: Um, unfortunately, no.

Chloe: Well, I guess it would be a long shot to hope for victor to go along with adam’s plan to help us out. I mean, listen to me. I can’t believe I thought that victor newman would rescue us.

Sally: Chloe, this isn’t easy for me to say. But I think we have reached the end of the line.

Chloe: What? No, no, no, no, no, no. We just haven’t found a solution yet. But we will. I– I know we will. It’s– it’s there somewhere.

Sally: I don’t think so. I mean, we’ve exhausted all of our options and we’ve turned over every rock.

Chloe: Yeah, but we’ve always come across setbacks and then we always figure it out. I mean, besides, neither of us have anything lined up. So, I mean, we might as well stick it out.

Sally: That’s the thing, um… so, I’m sure that you have heard that chelsea is taking a leave of absence from marchetti.

Chloe: Yeah, yeah. Chelsea told me that she wants to spend more time with connor.

Sally: Exactly. So, adam spoke with chelsea and chelsea’s gonna put in a word with summer for me to see if I can take over for her while chelsea is gone in the interim.

Chloe: Oh, wow, um… okay, so you didn’t think to maybe have a discussion with me first about this, your partner?

Sally: It all happened so fast. I– I reached out to you as soon as I could.

Chloe: Okay, so did summer make you an offer?

Sally: No, and– and she probably won’T. I mean, she doesn’t like me with good reason. So, she probably doesn’t want me to be the creative director.

Chloe: It’s possible, though. Or we wouldn’t be having this conversation.

Sally: Look, the role would be temporary just until chelsea feels ready to come back.

Chloe: But if summer offered it to you, you would take it and leave me behind. Oh. Wait, what’s– what’s with the bag?

Sally: I am moving in with adam.

Chloe: I’m sorry, I just– this day just keeps getting better and better.

Billy: Hey, mom.

Jill: Billy, where are you?

Billy: Uh, I’m at the office. I– I got back into town just now. What’s going on?

Jill: Uh, I should’ve made it clear that this is a personal conversation.

Billy: Okay, I’m sorry. I didn’t know. I just– I wanted to get back to you as soon as possible.

Jill: Are devon and lily around?

Billy: No, they’re in a meeting. They actually don’t know that I’m back yet. We have privacy, if that’s what you’re asking. Is everything all right?

Jill: There’s something you need to know. It ain’t my dad’s razor, dad.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Jack: Clearly, I’ve upset you. That was never my intention.

Diane: I have tried to make the best of this situation between you and nikki. And I had concerns when you first agreed to be her sponsor, but I kept my mouth shut because I know how important it is to you.

Jack: Nikki is one of my oldest and dearest friends. I want to help her.

Diane: And you have made that perfectly clear. Even though you know how hard it was for me to accept that you put your life in danger for her. Jack, you took pills and you could’ve died. All because you were trying to save nikki.

Jack: That was one moment, one night.

Diane: No, no. She takes up so much of your time and energy. And– and I have tried to be the bigger person, but you are making this very difficult for me.

Jack: That was never my intention.

Diane: No, it’s too much. You gambled with your addiction and you could’ve died. Why? Why would you take that chance again?

Jack: You saw nikki just now. She’s doing better. She is. She’s stronger. She’s more herself. I saw it.

Diane: Well, I’m glad she went to rehab and I’m glad she’s improving. That’s wonderful. But there’s no guarantee it’ll stay that way.

Jack: No, I think it’s gonna be different this time.

Diane: Yeah, but what if it’s not? What if she slips? What are you going to do? Are you gonna call up your dealer and risk everything to pull her back from the edge again?

Jack: No, I have promised you that’s not going to happen again. I just finished telling nikki my actions were extreme.

Diane: But in your mind it worked, right? You accomplished your goal. You got nikki to wake up and set herself straight.

Jack: I can’t say I am disappointed with how it turned out.

Diane: That’s fine. But as your wife, you need to know what your decision to be her sponsor again is doing to me. Because I don’t know if it’s something I can live with.

Victoria: Is there anything else that we don’t know?

Victor: No, my darling, you know everything that’s important. So, as far as I’m concerned, you’re all safe.

Claire: Thank you, grandpa.

Victor: I’m sorry, but there’s something I need to take care of. My darling, you need me, you call, okay?

Nikki: Oh, I’ll be fine. Don’t worry.

Victor: My baby. Okay, you two.

Victoria: Bye, dad.

Victoria: So, you were with dad when he got the news about jordan. Did you see her alive?

Cole: I did.

Claire: How was she?

Cole: She looked weak, worn out, just a shell of her former self.

Claire: I guess after everything she went through, being in the river for that long.

Nikki: Do you think she could’ve been faking?

Cole: No, no, no. She, uh, she was definitely broken, defeated. It was over.

Claire: I can’t even picture her defeated. But I guess she brought it on herself.

Cole: The bottom line is that none of you should be afraid. We don’t need to worry about her anymore.

Victoria: You know, every time that we think that jordan is out of our lives, she proves us wrong. She escaped from prison, she escaped from the hospital, and now somehow she’s cheated death?

Cole: Well, I totally understand your fears. I would feel the same way if I hadn’t seen her myself. My aunt will never harm anyone again.

Billy: Mom, what’s going on? Is– is everything okay?

Jill: I’ve, um, had some issues with my health. You know, little things. You know, like my heart beating too fast and difficulty in breathing. Just some lightheadedness.

Billy: Okay. Well, that’s a little worrisome given your heart attack you had a few years ago.

Jill: Yeah, I felt the same way. So I went to the doctor and, um… and there are some complications, billy.

Billy: Okay. What does that mean exactly?

Jill: I don’t wanna get into it.

Billy: Okay, well, you’re gonna have to give me something, all right? Because you’re telling me that– that you’re not well and I don’t know what to do, so–

Jill: I’m in london now with snapper and he’s overseeing my treatment.

Billy: Okay. Well, that’s good. Um… I mean, is this serious, mom? I just have to take it easy and avoid stress. Honestly, snapper is being as irritating as hell. He’s just hovering over me like a mother hen.

Billy: Okay, well, it sounds like he’s being a good brother. Um, I mean, is this– is there a significant risk here?

Jill: Well, if I’m not careful, things could get worse. Yeah, they could… get much worse, but I am not going to let that happen.

[Billy sighs]

Billy: You know, when you told me that you were stepping away, I thought something was up because that doesn’t sound like you. I got a bad feeling in my gut.

Jill: Oh, for god’s sake, your gut doesn’t know anything. Nothing is gonna happen to me. I won’t let it. Darling, don’t you get sentimental or scared on me. You hear?

Billy: Yeah, I hear you. Um, is this the type of situation that has a prognosis?

Jill: I won’t bore you with the opinions of others or statistics. Just know this, my son. I am confident that I can take this on.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Victoria: You know, there is nothing online about jordan being found, at least not yet.

Claire: I should tell summer and kyle about this. Don’t you think they should– they should know, for harrison’s sake?

Victoria: Mom, claire has some wonderful news. Kyle and summer have hired her to be harrison’s nanny.

Nikki: Really? How wonderful.

Cole: Congratulations, sweetheart. Well deserved.

Claire: It’s just a trial for now. Today’s actually my first day.

Nikki: Ah, I’m so happy for you. And harrison is a lucky little boy.

Claire: Well, I was really excited about it before, but now with this news about jordan, I…

Cole: Hey, don’t let that ruin your excitement.

Nikki: This is quite an accomplishment for you. Savor this moment. It’s the beginning of a whole new chapter for you.

Chloe: Well, this is unbelievable. How long has this been in the works with you and adam?

Sally: He just asked me to move in yesterday. But this feels like the next step for us.

Chloe: Swell.

Sally: Look, we all know how you feel about him, but this really feels like a good thing.

Chloe: Fine. Fine, I… I’m not going to say anything about adam. I’m not gonna warn you off of him ’cause we know how that has worked before. So I, um, I hope that your living arrangement is not awful.

Sally: Thank you.

Chloe: Okay, but, I’m sorry, but I just need to be a little selfish right now. So if our company goes under and you go to marchetti, what happens to me?

Sally: We will figure something out. I won’t leave you in the lurch.

Chloe: Well, sorry, honey, but you already have. I mean, I don’t know if I can go to marchetti. I burned that bridge with summer when I quit.

Sally: Yes, but if I am the creative director, I will fight for you. You are an asset to any company.

Chloe: I mean, do I even wanna go back there? It wasn’t a good fit.

Sally: But maybe it’ll be the perfect fit if I’m there.

Chloe: You don’t even know if you have the job. So if our company dissolves… I’m sorry, but I can’t base my whole future on hypotheticals.

Sally: Yeah, I understand.

Chloe: And have you even talked to nick? I mean, does he– does he know that he might lose his entire investment?

Sally: Not yet, but I will. Look, I will get all of this sorted.

Chloe: Have you thought this through at all? Have you seriously considered that you are going to throw away a company, the one that we have built from the ground up?

Sally: We’re still a team, chloe. That doesn’t need to change.

Chloe: No! No, if this is happening, then I’m on my own.

Billy: I’ll never doubt your ability to pummel anything into submission, including heart disease.

Jill: Correct answer.

Billy: Okay, so what do we do now?

Jill: Just keep this to yourself. I don’t want anyone else to know.

Billy: Yeah, of course, but what else? I mean, I know you’re there with– with snapper, but I’ll come and see you. I can leave tonight.

Jill: Don’t be stupid, sweetheart. You need to stay put and manage the company.

Billy: Mom, that doesn’t matter right now, okay? You’re the most important thing, and you’re telling me that you’re not well.

Jill: I’m well enough, thank you. And it’s far too messy there for you to just walk away. Your job is to protect chancellor-winters from outside threats. Protect its legacy, billy.

Billy: Yeah, I can do that. But I’m not gonna do it for chancellor’s legacy, okay? I’m gonna protect the abbott legacy. Your legacy. With moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,

Jill: I’m glad you understand the importance. Look out for the company. I need you fully on board.

Billy: I won’t let you down.

Jill: Oh, and let’s be clear. This is not forever. I will be back. And when I am, I expect to find the company stronger than ever with you in charge and mamie gone.

Billy: I got this.

Jill: I’m counting on you.

Billy: Well, just promise me that you’re gonna keep me in the loop, okay? You let me know about your treatment. Okay? You can promise me that, right? And, uh, you need me, you just let me know and I’ll– I’ll come see you.

Jill: Thank you. I’m proud of you, billy. And I love you, my son.

Billy: I love you too, mom. You don’t worry about this place, okay? Because I’m just getting started. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Sally: I swear, we will work something out. I won’t leave you behind.

Chloe: You’re on your own track. Totally separate from mine. You’ve got adam and a potential job with summer and you don’t need me.

Sally: That is not true.

Cloe: So, um, I guess this partnership is considered over, right? Well, thank you for the opportunity. Um, really, it’s been great. This has been fun.

Sally: Chloe, please!

Chloe: No, really. It’s no hard feelings. Okay, I wish you the best with adam. And, um, I sincerely hope he doesn’t break your heart.

Jack: Look, I realize you’re upset. I’m just telling you this is a non-issue.

Diane: You’re not hearing me, jack. I don’t even understand why this is up for debate. You shouldn’t be nikki’s sponsor. And I would think that the professionals at her rehab would’ve told her that.

Jack: Nikki is free to choose her own sponsor.

Diane: Oh, right. And she chooses you. And– and you feel justified in continuing because your stupid plan worked and no one died this time.

Jack: Do you think I’m choosing nikki over you? That is not what this is.

Diane: What am I supposed to think? When– when you’ve chosen to be her sponsor again, when you know how I feel about it.

Jack: I am torn. I– I do not wanna let you down. But you’re asking me to abandon a lifelong friend. It’s not an obligation I can easily walk away from.

Diane: Jack, I don’t think I can get past this. And I don’t think you realize how serious I am. This is about trust. This is about our relationship. This is about our marriage. And you and I are, we’re looking at things so differently right now in a way that I never, ever expected. And I don’t know how we’re going to survive this.

Cole: Where do you want these?

Victor: Uh, put them there for the time being.

Cole: You sure about this?

Victor: Well, cole, we have no other choice, you know.

Cole: We did the right thing, victor.

Victor: Yeah. All right. Let’s go. We lock this down here.

hey. Good morning. Want some coffee, or are you gonna go back to bed? Uh, coffee. I have to meet my brother, and I don’t want to be late. Well, I’m sure he’ll understand. Uh, no, it’s not like that. I have to support him. I need to make sure he doesn’t feel guilty or alone or whatever he felt yesterday that had him reaching for a bottle. Look, finn’s grieving. Okay? And — and he’s not just grieving the loss of your dad. He’s also grieving the time he stayed away. He’s gonna feel what he’s gonna feel. And you think I should just let him feel it? There’s no stopping it. Look, you can reach out, offer your support. I know finn would really appreciate that. I’m so sorry about your dad. I know he meant a lot to you, too.

[ Sighs ] Come in. Thanks. You just get back? Yeah, 10 minutes ago. I wanted to get here before you did because I, uh — I made some coffee, and if you — I figured you’d want that. And while we’re waiting, I thought maybe we could talk. How did things go in albany? I want to talk about your dad.

[ Crying ] I’m so sad. I’m so sad that I missed the wedding.

[ Sighs ] You know, um… it wasn’t perfect, but it was close. There was A… there was a moment where I didn’t think my dad was, uh, gonna be able to finish the wedding. Yeah. But then tracy and violet — they got him back on track and… he just willed himself through the rest of the ceremony and… it was beautiful. I know how much that would have meant to him. I do, and I’m so glad that his last day was beautiful. I am. -Hey. -Ooh. Thank you. -This one’s for you. -Thank you. And thank you so much for meeting me. As soon as ava gets here, we can head out, and then we can check out those apartment listings. Of course. Yeah. Um, but I thought you had the day off. Yeah, I don’t know. All I know what happened was that ava called me. She wanted me to open up. She said that there was an emergency meeting at “crimson.” These deception ads are gorgeous. Yeah, the camera really loves blaze. I can’t wait to run them. Be careful, maxie. Integrity isn’t nina’s strong suit. Not that that’s news. Madison! Oh, she’s not at her desk. She couldn’t have stopped me anyway. Note to self — buy madison a taser. Ava! As you can see, we are busy. So how about you go out there, make an appointment for, I don’t know, next millennium? I’d be happy to see you then. You’ll see me now. You broke our deal. I wanna know why. Hi, boss. [ Chuckles ] Come in. Well, I’m not hereon business, so you can just call me mr. Cain. Oh. Sir, yes, sir. Ha, ha! Is michael around? There’s something I want to run by him. So this isn’t entirely a social call? Nope. Not entirely. It was michael’s turn to run wiley to school. But he’ll be back soon if you’d like to wait. Happy to. Great. Coffee? Always. But what I really need from you is… I need your opinion on something. About what? Well, there’s something that I want to run by you, but you gotta promise that you’re not going to tell the rest of the quartermaines.

For the apartments… mm-hmm. …Location-wise I’m thinking around pcu, but does that work for you?

[ Sighs ] I don’t know. I-I haven’t decided whether or not. I’m going back after my semester off. But if I do, I’m done with dorm life. It just — it reminds me too much of spencer. Well, I hear you there.

[ Chuckles ] And to be honest, I’m pretty tired of drunk people no, yeah. In our halls at all hours of every day… …and the cafeteria food. And I’m tired of smelling everybody’s takeout, and it’s coming through our walls. Yeah, and just the noise of other people in general.

[ Chuckles ] What? Nothing, except… I don’t think you are in a position to be complaining about other people’s noises when you made your fair share of noise yourself. Right. I did not. Because you only made those noises at dex’s house.

[ Laughs ]

[ Chuckles ] Okay, okay. Uh, you know what? It — it doesn’t even matter now. So when was the last time you ran into dex? At the wedding. So how was it? Um, it was surprisingly good. Mm. Yeah. My parents told me that it was really beautiful. Yeah, it was. And so was the reception… right up until sonny attacked dex. I am not sure what deal you are referring to, but you are more than welcome to forward a copy to my assistant. You know very well what deal. You promised me that you would devote two pages to the U.S. Debut of harriet nekaya at the gallery. Oh, now I recall that discussion. Yes. The assistant editor that you lobbied lobbied me, and I had every intention of including it. Then why isn’t it in here? Space. Space? You see the size of this magazine? Of course I see it. I published. Then how is it possible there isn’t any space? Like I said, ava, I have every intention of putting her in the magazine. But in this issue, I needed to make space for something a little bit more timely. Like what? Like an in-depth profile on an exciting new charity initiative that my daughter’s involved in.

[ Scoffs ] Willow doesn’t even talk to you. Since you and i aren’t friends anymore, how could you possibly know what’s going on between me and my daughter? Or a gentleman friend that I may or may not be seeing? Let me guess. I wouldn’t know him, right? He lives in canada.

[ Laughs ] Yeah, I would love to stand here and dish with my bestie, but since you put a knife in my back, that’s not you, so how about you leave and report back to sonny? You know something, nina? I think it’s really sad that your head trip as — as queen of crimson is all you have left in your… little life.

[ Sighs ] That was nuts. Right? I mean, she was

way out of line. Yeah, she was definitely out of line, but I was talking about you. Me?! Nina, why would you antagonize ava jerome like that? So, I happen to know that congressman mcconkey is not gonna be running for reelection next fall. And I met with mcconkey recently and… he’s urging me to run for his seat, which means — wait, wait, wait, wait. I just want to make sure I understand. Larry mcconkey wants you to run for his seat in congress? Yeah, that’s what he said. I mean, I haven’t fully wrapped my mind around this yet. Are you going to do it? You would be perfect! Took violet to school. When I got home, I found my dad had… passed in his sleep. But I don’t think he felt any pain. Well, at least that was a blessing. Uh-huh. Then I called 911, and they took forever. And while I was waiting, I… I looked over and I saw this — this bottle of bourbon, this gift from the cerullos that they gave to me at the rehearsal dinner. And I was gonna give it away. Instead, I drank a third of it. Okay. You don’t seem entirely surprised. It’s okay, finn. You know, I keep asking myself, would I have drank yesterday if I didn’t accidentally drink that glass of champagne the night before? And I’m 99% sure I-I wouldn’t have. But then there’s that 1% of me that’s not so sure. And that’s the part that’s winning. You have to try to look at it objectively. I’ll try. I mean, regardless of you slipping the night before, you woke up the next morning, and — and… it was tragic. It was heartbreaking. So you have, um, a pretty sympathetic reason to break your sobriety.

[ Sighs ] Doesn’t excuse it. Forget about excuses because I’ve learned that, you know, nothing really excuses anything. There’s just explanation and forgiveness. And after everything you’ve been through, it can certainly be explained. Hey, you know, I’m not the only one that has suffered a difficult loss here. How are you? You mean, do I want a drink?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah.

Did you drink? No. No. And I have no intention of it. Yeah, well, neither did I, but here we are. I think maybe it’s — it’s a two-a-day meeting kind of thing for a while, huh? Way ahead of you. I was at a meeting this morning. That’s — that’s why I didn’t pick up when you called. Yeah, that’s a damn good reason. I drank. But I’m never gonna drink again. For now. Yeah, for now. So… you know, the thing to really remember is you know, you and me…

[Voice breaking] We have each other. Yeah.

[ Both chuckle ]

Why am I antagonizing ava, maxie? Yeah. Well, um, maybe it has something to do with, I don’t know, telling me that she was going to go to bat for me with sonny and help me save my marriage… I know that — …then sandbagging me because she wanted to get her claws into sonny herself. All that was awful — she implied that if I sold the metro court to jason, that sonny would approve of that, knowing full well that sonny hates jason now. Okay, nina, do you regret selling the metro court? No. Do you regret signing the divorce papers? No. I regret

having to sign them. But sonny and I were broken beyond repair. Then why take the time to make ava your enemy? Becoming my enemy was her choice. That woman has a history of murder and mayhem with a touch of poisoning. Please, who doesn’t? Maxie, come on. I don’t think I’m in any physical danger. Okay, maybe not today. But if you keep this up… I’m telling you, though — did you see that scowl on her face? Now, that — that was almost worth a little arsenic. Chase: I’m so sorry. What do I tell you about apologizing, huh? That this is how we’re spending your dream honeymoon. Honeymoons are two things, okay? First of all, they are a vacation. Italy’s not going anywhere. We will take that trip later and make up for all the lost time. I like the way you think. I know. What about the other honeymoon? The other honeymoon is this — everything else. Ah, forever. This is my dream. Coffee and scones? Being with you through good times and bad. And, yes, the coffee and scones are a definite bonus. Are you sure you don’t want another one? Yes. If I haven’t made myself clear, whatever I can do for you, for us, for our family, if — if that’s jumping in and helping or giving you time to grieve with finn, or both, I’ll do it, okay? I got you. You are amazing. I really am. I love you so much. Ditto. How are you? Not great. I’ve since learned there are greater losses than my law license. I’m so sorry about gregory. I know how important he was to you. I called him last night, and chase answered the phone. That’s how I found out. Any word on the — from the court of appeals? Well, the wheels of bureaucracy do not accelerate to steamroll over you, no matter how much it seems like they want to. Any new insights? I thought we stood a really good chance of at least having your disbarment reexamined, if not completely vacated. Yeah. And now? Now it’s clear that your disbarment was motivated by personal animus, no vigilance toward the law, and that animus stemmed from two conspiring sources — ava jerome and fergus byrne. By the way, I’m going to be filing a harassment complaint against counselor byrne a little later on today. Maybe more than one, depending on my mood. Well, if you need any ammo… please. …We had a little run-in at a diner in albany. Say more. I was just sitting there, minding my own business, drowning my sorrows in a salad, and the avenging angel strolled by. What did he say? You know, it’s not what he said. It’s what I think is true. It’s not about his vengeance. It’s about his guilt because he was estranged from both his brothers when they died about some inheritance issue. Oh, interesting. Maybe I can use that. Oh, go ahead. You know, if I’m being blamed for destroying two of the byrne brothers, might as well make it a trifecta.

[ Chuckles ] I like the way you think. I’ve been getting all the flack for this, anyway. It was harmony who killed neil in my bed and then shoved his brother brendan off a cliff. So why is that idiot after me? I’ll make sure to ask him at his disciplinary hearing. In the meantime, I am off to general hospital. I’ve got to meet with gregory’s sons for the reading of his will. I’m glad that he retained you. After I represented the plaintiff suing his son, even I was a little surprised. He knew you were just doing your job. I mean, we both know that the justice system works best when there’s capable attorneys on each side. And you are capable attorney. You’re not as good as I am. Oh. But you’re a capable attorney. Okay. I’m really glad he retained you. Listen, you are mentioned in this will. You want to attend? Amy said you’d be in here. Is this okay? I want to — I need to apologize. I was wrong, and you were right. And I never should have spoken to you that way. I have no excuse. I was grieving my father, and I drank to numb the pain. Again, that’s not an excuse. It’s just what happened. But chase — he talked me through the worst part of it, and I’ll never drink again. I’ve already been to one meeting this morning. I ju– I just wish I had the words to explain how sorry I am to you. Thank you for saying all that. I know you mean it. And I’m really glad to hear that you’re doing what you need to take care of yourself. But I hope you understand that I wasn’t trying to take charge or tell you what to do. It was only thinking about violet and how she just found out that she had lost her grandfather, forever, and… I needed to put her first. I understand. Good. Because you didn’t seem to yesterday.

You know what’s funny?I didn’t think this was a thing, but now that we’re married, I feel different. In what way? It’s kind of hard to explain. It’s like, you know when you’ve been away for a while and you finally come home and you crash in your own bed? Oh, yeah. Yeah, it’s like that, but everything is better. Even the bed is better. And somehow you love everything even more. It’s like your capacity to love has just leveled up in a way that you didn’t even know was possible. And here you are. Here we are. We’re home. We belong, and we’ll always belong, because the person we belong with is always by our side. And it’s not like some huge, major revelation. It’s just like remembering something that we always knew but now we won’t forget. Because here we are. Because here we are. So is dex okay? Is he — is he gonna press charges? How are you feeling? I’m pissed off. I’ve been so angry at sonny for so long. God, it’s like I’m permanently stuck like this. Yeah, I hear you. So is — is dex… well, I took him to the E.R., And we had to wait there all night because he needed stitches. Dex needed stitches? Oh, it could have been a lot worse had jason not been there to pull sonny off of him. Josslyn. You more than anybody should know better than to spread gossip. Um, it’s not gossip. I was there. Oh. You saw sonny hit dex? No, but I saw dex right after. So, no, you didn’t see anything. And yet… and yet kristina saw

everything, and she was very freaked out by it. And how far along is kristina? Now, what you girls wouldn’t know is that when you’re pregnant, sometimes the — the littlest thing can freak you out. Oh, this was not a little thing, sorry. But what you do know, both of you, by now, is that when men drink, they fight. And I’m sure this encounter between dex and sonny wouldn’t have escalated if jason hadn’t insinuated himself. Okay, you know what? This conversation isn’t going anywhere, so maybe we should just dead it here. And we have those apartments to go see, yes? No, you know what, trina? You’re so right. And I shouldn’t argue with your boss, who wasn’t actually

at the reception — I can’t imagine why you weren’t invited — um, and couldn’t have possibly known what actually happened. I’m not gonna go to the reading. I think that’s for finn and chase. Oh, honey. I’m sure they’d welcome you. Besides, I have to pay a visit to a certain gallery owner. Ah. Give ava hell. Anyhow, I think I know what gregory would like me to do from his will. You can guess, but I can neither confirm nor deny till the will is read. He wants me to be literary executor, and I’m proud and happy to do it.

[ Chuckles ] I had a feeling you would be. I really wish that I had gone to the wedding… …and seen him in his proudest and finest moment. I just really never thought that it would be his last.

Violet has always been your first concern. But yesterday, you…

[ Sighs ] You made it seem like she was something that belonged to you that I shouldn’t take, instead of a little girl who had just lost her grandfather and probably needed a lot of reassurance. Not only have I never seen that side of you before… …I honestly didn’t think you were capable of it. You’ll never see that side of me again. And I want to thank you for looking out for my daughter.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry. Um… chase is here. Is he okay? Yeah. He’s, uh… diane miller’s coming by my office to read my father’s will. So there is a subtle but clear narrative direction that — I mean, who does ava think she is telling me that I don’t have a life? I’m literally a trendsetter. The question isn’t whether or not we should — anyone can hang paintings on a wall. I dictate fashion. It’s more like how much space to — I mean, the woman doesn’t even have a place to live. She’s imposing on the father of her child, a man who will never, ever love her. Okay, since we’re obviously not going to talk about the ads, which is the actual reason for this meeting… I’m — w-what are you doing? What — I’m sorry. What were you saying? No, no, no, it’s too late for what I was saying. You clearly need to get this out of your system. Um, who was the gentleman friend you were mentioning to ava? Maxie. You know. Yeah, but I was hoping I was wrong. You and drew are still, um… whatever? Yeah, well, he’s no gentleman, and he’s certainly not a friend, but we have a good thing going.

[ Sighs ] Nina, he’s your boss. It doesn’t hurt business. And you two don’t like each other? Well, that definitely doesn’t hurt business. Can the sex really be that good? It’s a huge decision. I mean, this is gonna affect everybody that I care about. But you want to do it, right? You want to run for mcconkey’s seat? I mean, I didn’t even take it seriously at first. I thought he was kidding when he brought it up. But the more I think about it, I mean, I do see the upside. You seem to think it’s a good idea. Uh, no, I think it’s a great idea. But it’s crazy, right? I mean, it’s nuts. I mean, would I even have a shot? Absolutely. Government needs people like you. Really? People with no previous government experience? Because that typically doesn’t work out very good. Well, it does when those people are unselfish and open-minded, when they get involved in order to try and help make life better for people. Yeah, those people typically stay out of politics. Which is exactly why we need more of them in politics. And if you don’t mind my saying so, I think — I think it’d do you good. How so? Well, you were in a very dark place for a while, and I know you’ve made it out the other side, but that darkness — it stays with you. And you think me running for public office is gonna cure whatever is ailing me? I think being in office, making a difference — no, it won’t cure it, but it will help. It’s why I loved being a school teacher and why I’m going to love being the spokesperson for the new tomorrow institute. Raising awareness of the need for bone marrow donors will make a difference. It will help make people’s lives better, or it’ll help them live at all. And I will — I will get to help make that happen because you offered me the chance to. And I’m very glad that I did. Okay, I promise I will not say a word to anyone else about you possibly running for congress, but I really, really hope you’ll do it. Hey. Hey. Oh. Come on in. So how are you this morning? I’m okay, all things considered. How are you? I didn’t sleep much. Ended up sitting in dad’s room half the night, trying to feel close to him, I guess. I didn’t drink again. Matter of fact, I went to a aa meeting this morning. Good. I’m glad you’re doing what you gotta do. Just so you know, I’m not checking up on you. Really? Why not? Because I trust you to take care of yourself and violet. Ah, alexis. Good morning. Are you shopping for yourself or somebody else? No. I just got back from albany. I met an old friend of yours. How? I don’t know anybody in albany. Oh, sure you do. Fergus byrne. Fergus byrne. Hmm. Any relation to those other two byrnes whose lives you destroyed? Actually, it was harmony miller who destroyed their lives. But, yes, he’s their brother. But, of course, you already know that because you hired him to get me disbarred. Oh, him.

[ Chuckles ] Of course. I remember him now. How’s he doing? I imagine he’s having a very, very good day. You know what I’m really curious about is why you chose to be anonymous. Because I would’ve thought you’d be thrilled at the thought of me knowing that you were responsible for the implosion of my career and my life. No, alexis. You are responsible for that. But I was more than happy to help. Will that be all?

“I, gregory chase, being of sound mind and unsound body, et cetera, et cetera” — and just so you know, in addition to the regular legalese, he actually wrote out, “et cetera, et cetera” — “the first order of business, I suppose, is to name my executor. And that would be my son, harrison chase.” Wait, what? Yes, sir. You are responsible for seeing to it that your father’s wishes are followed. Uh, okay. Um, what are his wishes? Brief and clear. Just take a breath. Don’t worry. If you need any advice, I’m always here to help. Thank you. I will take you up on that. “While harrison will be the executor of my estate, such as it is, I also name alexis davis as my literary executor. As for my rather modest estate, it is to be divided evenly between my two sons, harrison and hamilton, with the exception of my library, which I leave to my brilliant, imaginative granddaughter, violet, to enjoy when she is ready.” She’s gonna love that. Yeah. “Finally, I request that my body be cremated. Rather than a church ceremony and a burial, I want an open-air memorial with my family and closest friends gathered to witness the scattering of my ashes near my favorite tree in the park. Violet knows which one. I want my family to focus on life, not death — the sky and the world around you, not a hole in the ground. In setting my body and spirit free into the air, I can happily return to the earth, which has been so generous to me.” Well, if that’s what dad wanted… that’s what we’ll do. I’m not talking about sex. That’s really not part of it anymore. Oh, no. Nina, are you developing feelings for drew? What? God, no! You know that saying about protesting too much? You are, like, the literal illustration right now. No, it’s just that…

[ Sighs ] Somehow the — the frenemies with benefits really did have benefits. Because of drew, I’m back on semi-speaking terms with willow. Okay. What’s he getting out of it? What else is he getting out of it? I got him a meeting with congressman mcconkey on this big urban-renewal project aurora’s working on with the city. Okay. Hmm. Yeah, I know. We’re actually, like, business partners, sort of. I still have to ask, what — what are you gonna do if temptation a-arises again? Maxie, don’t worry. For me, drew cain is the opposite of irresistible. Nina, if that were the case, why do you keep

not resisting him? Why would you go out of your way to destroy my career? Oh, alexis. It wasn’t out of my way at all. And as to the why, you knew my brother loved you very much. And you used that against him over and over again, leading him on, drawing him in, only to cast him aside. It didn’t matter that he saved your life more than once, or that he dried you out after you ran him over with your car while out on a bender. Actually, I was on a bender after being manipulated by julian to defend carlos rivera, who he then murdered, which your bestie fergus described in glorious detail to the court. Well, I wish I could have seen that. So you’re still blaming julian for all your failings? No, ava, I’m blaming you for getting me disbarred. I see, so here you are standing in my gallery, blaming me, even though you committed perjury. I mean, did I call the bar and make a statement? Yeah. Did I tell them you committed perjury? Yep. Which you did. So don’t blame me. Blame yourself.

The more I learn of public service, the — the more I like it. But the campaign could get nasty. I was in prison not too long ago for insider trading. Which you’ve owned up to. And now you’ve seen firsthand what prisons are like, so you can campaign on reform. You’ve paid your debt to society, which appeals to those who value accountability. You’re an ex-navy seal, which appeals to the military-minded. You’ve already shown a commitment to the public good, which appeals to mcconkey’s base. Wow! Will you be my campaign manager? Thanks, but I’m busy. Oh, yeah? Really? Well, you’re fired. Oh, okay.

[ Laughs ] Oh, I love the sound of that — “congressman cain.” Yeah, yeah. Mcconkey had something to say about that, too. Hey, thank you. Really. This is… this is way more than I could have hoped for. You can thank me by agreeing to run.

[ Knock on door ] Thought you’d still be here, even though you’re not working today. Yeah, I figured since I was here anyway, I might as well catch up on some paperwork, maybe it would help keep my mind off…things. Is it working? Eh. What do you got there? Dropping off x-rays seems like it’s beneath the head nurse’s pay grade. I’m never too busy to help the people I love. Thank you for that. How’d it go? The reading of your dad’s will? He left all his books to violet. Sounds like him. Instead of a funeral, he wants his ashes scattered in an open-air memorial. That sounds beautiful. Yeah. And if you don’t mind my asking… ask me anything. …When’s your next meeting? In about an hour. Do you want me to pick up violet from school? Is she even at school? Yeah. I didn’t — I didn’t want to disrupt her schedule. And she insisted it’s what her — her grandpa would want. She’s probably right. Then consider it done. Thank you. I’m — I’m sure violet will love that. I should get back to work. Yeah, me too. How’d the reading go? Uh, good. My dad made me executor. Really? Wow. What an honor. Yeah. I always thought I would go to finn because he’s the oldest, but it’s almost like my dad knew that he’d be struggling and shouldn’t be burdened. Or maybe your dad just trusted that you could take care of things. Yeah, I guess that’s a possibility. So how are you feeling with everything? Better. I’m glad that I have one more thing that I can do for my dad. Now I just have to not let him down, or anybody. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself, chase. Well, not only do I have to carry out my father’s wishes, but I have to worry about finn and violet. I have to get them through this. Wow. Yeah. It’s just so awful that you don’t have anyone by your side to help you through any of this. Oh, wait. There you are. Here I am. Don’t you forget it. Did you even see the affidavit I signed? Yes. Was there anything in there that wasn’t true? Nope.

[ Chuckles ] Then what in god’s name are you objecting to? I’m objecting to your cruelty, ava. You have only two ways of dealing with adversity. Just two. You either deflect blame, or you inflict harm. My brother would be alive today if he hadn’t been on the receiving end of what you call love. I got nothing to apologize for. You mean nothing that you’ve been caught and prosecuted for…yet. Which makes me miss being able to practice law that much more. But license or not, you’re going to regret making that complaint.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Upbeat music ]

Steffy: You were at sheila’s wedding?

Finn: By accident. Okay, I was picking up the pizzas from il giardino.

Steffy: And deacon and sheila just happened to be getting married?

Finn: Yeah. Steffy, I had no idea it was going on. The ceremony was supposed to be at the beach.

Steffy: You weren’t just there, finn. You were part of the ceremony.

Liam: Well, I know how you used to feel about sheila, and now she’s your stepmom, so that’s fun.

Hope: Ooh, yes, definitely not my first choice. But she is my dad’s, so I– I have to support him.

Liam: Correction. You don’t have to support him. You’re choosing to support him, ’cause that’s the kind of daughter that you are and he is beyond lucky to have you.

Hope: I don’t know. You know, the weird thing is, they seem really, really happy together.

Liam: Gross. You know what the weird thing is to me? That finn showed up. What, is he out of his mind?

Rj: So, I’ve done the math. We have about 98 more kisses to make up for, okay?

Luna: I hated every second away from you, rj?

Rj: Not as much as me.

Luna: I’m just– I’m really glad that we were able to work through everything because it’s been so hard.

Rj: Yeah. On both of us. Which reminds me, how are, um, how are you and your mom doing?

Poppy: Bill and I go way back.

Bill: Way, way back.

Katie: Yeah, yeah. Twenty years. That’s a long time to be friends.

Bill: Yeah, poppy and I lost touch for a while.

Poppy: Yeah, and then we just happened to run into each other again.

Bill: Totally unexpected. I was grabbing some lunch, and then there she was.

Poppy: Fate brought us back together again for a reason. Gave us a chance to reconnect.

Luna: Yeah, I wish things were back to normal with my mom, but, you know, we’re trying to get to a better place, but i honestly haven’t seen that much of her recently. She’s been hanging out with bill spencer. I’m starting to think that she’s really falling for him.

Katie: So, how did you two meet?

Bill: We met at a music festival in the bay area.

Katie: A music festival?

Bill: Ah, here we go. Yeah, a music festival. Why is that so weird?

Katie: Um, I’m just trying to visualize dollar bill grooving it up in the grass.

Bill: Oh, well, you just– you take all the time you need. Uh, the fact is that poppy caught my eye. And here we are, some 20 odd years later, back in each other’s lives.

Katie: Well, that must’ve been one hell of a night.

Liam: Look, I’m not here to give you a hard time.

Hope: Oh, I would appreciate it if you didn’T. Besides, you probably won’t get where I’m coming from.

Liam: I mean, I rarely agree with my father, but he’s still my dad, so I kind of do.

Hope: Yeah, it’s just my dad and I were estranged for so long, and I just– I don’t want to go back to that.

Liam: I know your reason for feeling obliged to be there kinda at least makes some sense. Finn is a whole different story.

Steffy: What were you thinking? What, you just happened to stumble upon their ceremony?

Finn: Yeah. Now, look, I told you, I had no clue it was even taking place.

Steffy: Why wouldn’t you just take the pizza and leave?

Finn: They weren’t ready.

Steffy: So, you just stayed around and participated?

Finn: Look, I just– I– I don’t know. I didn’t know what to do.

Steffy: Well, you gave sheila exactly what she wanted. How could you do that?

Rj: So, poppy’s actually falling for bill?

Luna: Yeah, that’s the vibe I’m getting.

Rj: I mean, well, I can’t say I’m surprised. I mean, they’ve been on a ton of dates recently. I mean, what– what makes you think it’s gotten more serious?

Luna: Well, is it that serious for him? It’s hard to tell, but…

Rj: Luna, come on. Poppy’s this pretty, creative, smart– I mean, she’s all the good things. I mean, why wouldn’t bill be into her? Come on.

Luna: My mom’s always been super popular with guys, but it’s always been casual. I mean, my mom’s focus has always been the two of us, you know? Nozawa power. But I’ve noticed like this change in her recently.

Rj: Because of bill spencer?

Bill: Well, I’m sure you’d rather not discuss my love life, katie.

Katie: Oh, I don’t mind if you don’t mind.

Bill: No, it’s not awkward for me. I don’t want you to be uncomfortable.

Katie: I don’t feel uncomfortable. I mean, you don’t have to explain anything to me. You haven’t had to do that in a long time. I’m just– I can see how happy you both are and– and as soon as I walked in here, I could tell that you had become close.

Bill: Poppy and luna have become a very important part of my life.

Katie: That’s good. I’m happy for both of you. I’m gonna take off. And, uh, truly, um, good luck.

Bill: Thanks, katie.

Poppy: It was lovely to meet you.

Katie: Yeah, same.

Bill: I’ll walk you out.

Liam: You know, he could’ve put his wife and his family first, but instead, he went with the not that option.

Hope: To be fair, sheila did kind of guilt finn into staying.

Liam: And he caved. Which tells me that if steffy asks finn for one thing, and sheila asks finn for the opposite thing, finn goes sheila.

Hope: Finn had no idea they were going to be at il giardino.

Liam: So what? So what? Let’s say it was dumb luck that he goes to pick up dinner and he just accidentally crashes his mom’s big day. What did he not do? Make a beeline for the door like any sane, rational, ethical human being. Instead, he stayed for the celebration.

Hope: Oh, my gosh, that is not how it happened. Finn felt deeply, deeply uncomfortable being there.

Liam: Yeah, I know. It’s uncomfortable when you directly disobey your wife’s wishes. She’s gonna be pissed.

Steffy: Were you planning on saying anything?

Finn: Of course, I was.

Steffy: When? Before or after the photo was posted?

Finn: I was just about to tell you, honey. And then you got the photo notification.

Steffy: Yeah, that photo just makes me sick.

Finn: I’m– I’m sorry you found out that way.

Steffy: So am I.

Finn: It was poor judgment on my part.

Steffy: Yeah. I asked you one thing. One. To not associate yourself with sheila. And what did you do? What did I just see? I see a picture of the two of you at her wedding.

Bill: You like it?

Poppy: A girl could get used to this.

Bill: Well, you ought to spend more time here.

Poppy: I’d love to.

Bill: I was also thinking we should take a little trip together.

Poppy: Hm.

Bill: Maybe the south of france. Monte carlo.

Poppy: Oh. Well, I’m gonna have to check my schedule.

Bill: Hm. Okay, you do that. You check your schedule. I’ve already been talking to my captain.

Poppy: Your captain?

Bill: I wanna take you on my yacht.

Poppy: You have a yacht? Like an actual yacht?

Bill: An actual yacht, yeah. The stella maris. Here, wait a minute. Ah, all right, take a look.

Poppy: Oh, wow. Uh, she’s yours?

Bill: Mm-hmm. All mine. What do you think?

Poppy: She’s beautiful, bill.

Bill: Yeah. She is beautiful. But not as beautiful as you. Something wrong?

Poppy: It was just meeting katie.

Bill: Yeah, I’m sorry about that. She has a tendency just to pop in. I– I guess she likes to talk about things in person. Like the parents weekend.

Poppy: Oh no, she’s fine. I mean, she was really lovely. She couldn’t have been sweeter, actually. But she was also intimidating.

Bill: Because she’s my ex?

Poppy: That, and she’s so accomplished and impressive. She’s so smart, stylish, pretty. It makes me wonder.

Bill: Wonder what?

Poppy: Why you weren’t together anymore. What happened between the two of you?

Bill: Uh, that is a very long story and I would just truthfully rather not get into it.

Poppy: Well, I just couldn’t imagine being married to you and then letting you go.

Hope: I don’t wanna lose my dad again. But that does not mean that I condone everything that he’s doing. I mean, believe me, this– this has not been easy for me.

Liam: Okay, well, there you go. I understand that you’re– you’re under a lot of pressure and this is complicated for you, but can we circle back one more time to the no sheila and beth in the same place at the same time? Can we just agree?

Hope: Yes, I understand, liam. But, food for thought, sheila did fight sugar to try to protect steffy and the kids. So maybe, just maybe, she is capable of change.

Liam: Ugh, now you’re really starting to sound like finn.

Finn: Look, I just– I don’t like seeing you upset.

Steffy: I can’t understand how you keep putting yourself in these situations.

Finn: Oh, but look, this was a total coincidence, okay? I had no intention.

Steffy: Of what? Being a member of the wedding party?

Finn: No, and it wasn’t like that.

Steffy: No, it was just the two of you. You and hope. You guys were the only guests. And now this photo of you, sheila and deacon, it’s on the internet for everyone to see.

Finn: Hey, I’m sorry. Is there anything I can do to make this right?

Steffy: You just have to learn to say no.

Finn: Okay, yeah. Honestly, you’re right. That’s exactly what I should’ve done. I should have just done a 180 and got out of there.

Steffy: Finn, this can’t– this can’t keep happening. I told you over and over again to stay away from sheila. And I hate to say it, but you– you let me down, again.


Luna: My mom and I have always been so close. I mean, I know her better than anyone. And I am positive that she’s falling in love with bill.

Rj: How do you feel about that?

Luna: I’d be supportive.

Rj: Hm.

Luna: I mean, bill’s been nothing but kind to me. Sometimes, I kind of wish he was my dad.

Poppy: It’s funny, we only spent that one night together, but I don’t think you realize how much it meant to me, bill. Even more than I realized at the time.

Bill: In hindsight, I wish that I hadn’t been so totally engrossed in my business. That I had reached out, tried to find you. Gone on that second date instead of waiting two decades.

Poppy: I wish you had too.

Bill: It’ll always be a big regret of mine.

Poppy: I was heartbroken.

Bill: Sorry for hurting you, poppy.

Poppy: You know, it’s crazy. Our lives went in such different directions. And, you know, if only we could go back and do it over again and not spend all those years apart. The difference it would’ve made.

Bill: Poppy, with everything you’re saying, I have to ask.

Poppy: Ask what?

Bill: Is there any chance at all that luna is my daughter? Do you know who luna’s father is? Could it be me?

Poppy: Yes, bill. It could be you. You might be luna’s father.

Hope: We don’t get to choose our biological parents. I mean, it’s not finn’s fault.

Liam: Does finn really not understand how much he’s undermining his marriage? How much he’s putting his family at risk with this whole connection to sheila? I mean, you, you’re you. I can’t, you know, if you wanna have a relationship with deacon and sheila, that’s fine. That’s your choice. I can’t stop you. Once again, though, the kids.

Hope: Yes, I– I heard you and beth will not be around them.

Liam: Thank you. Just be careful, okay? Because I don’t want you putting yourself in danger either. Sheila is dangerous and I don’t want you to listen to anyone who tries to tell you otherwise, including and especially finn.

Hope: Great talk.

Finn: I’m sorry for letting you down. You know, obviously my interactions with sheila are making you feel unsafe.

Steffy: You don’t make me feel unsafe. But staying at deacon and sheila’s wedding, like that is, that was the wrong move.

Finn: Okay, yeah. Look, I’m sorry, but you gotta understand, like, today– today was random. Okay, it was the last thing I expected. And I just– I didn’t– I don’t know, man. I just– I didn’t know what to do.

Steffy: You knew exactly what to do.

Finn: Look, I’m not making any excuses, but I was in a weird spot.

Steffy: How many times do i have to tell you this? You need to stay away from sheila. I don’t care that she’s your mother. I don’t want you to have a relationship with her.

Sheila: Finn, I– I’ve been given a second chance. Thank god, my son, thank god.

[ Kelly coughing ] Thank you, finn, for– for being at my wedding, baby. I love you.

Steffy: How many times do I have to say it? You need to stay away from sheila. I don’t care if she’s your mother. You can’t have a relationship with her.

Hope: I– I know you’re a little nervous about how steffy’s gonna react to this, but I don’t know if she should be the one dictating what your relationship looks like to your birth mother. I mean, maybe that should be up to you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


EJ’s personal effects, I take it. Surprised you left them in his office. My office. And, um, I was going to send them via messenger, but since you’re here, you can bring them to your brother. Save me on the delivery fee. Sure. Can I help you with something? I actually came by to offer my congratulations. Can’t say that felt entirely genuine.

Why wouldn’t it be? I helped push EJ out of office and I’m a big reason why you’re back in this job, Melinda. You’re also a demure, so I would be a fool to trust you. Look, I lost this job once before and I have no intention of letting it go again. And if you even think about doing to me what you did to your brother, you will find yourself a very dangerous enemy.

Oh, God. I’m sorry, I didn’t know you were working. It’s alright. Hello, stranger. Well, hello, Maggie. Oh, it feels like it’s been forever. Where have you been? I’ve just been laying low. I mean, it’s been a little too hectic around here for my taste. I mean, you are a gracious human for opening your house to the Horton clan, but It was a lot.

Well, it was very lively. Those kids can be rambunctious. Well, the kids are great. It’s the oldsters you gotta watch out for. You’re in present company, excluded, obviously. Obviously. Peace and quiet at last. You and Constantine, me and Justin, we finally have a place to ourselves. Am I right? Oh my god. So, how’s our baby boy doing?

Well, besides being perfect, because he is perfect, you know that, right? I do indeed. Every time I walk into the room, I can hardly believe my eyes. Our precious son is alive. The answer to our prayers. And you knew it all along. I felt it in my heart the moment I set eyes on him.

I know I said it before, but I will forever be sorry that I didn’t believe you. Can you ever forgive me? Honey, of course I forgive you. How could you have known? I had a connection with him because I carried him inside of me. You can’t beat yourself up for not recognizing your son in the same way. It’s not your fault.

There’s only one person to blame for what happened. I’m sorry.

Sloane! Did the place look like this when you left? No.

Look who thinks we’re gone. What’s this?

It’s the um, The gift that I gave Sloane for Mother’s Day. A jute spur stone. Damn it, she took off. I can’t believe she just left. She’s gotta know that running is just gonna make her situation worse. I’ll find her.

Hey, it’s me. I’ve got to put out an APB on Sloane Peterson.

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

Alex. Theresa, I wasn’t expecting you so soon. I, I didn’t know we needed to make an appointment to walk into our own home, but Bonnie, good to see you. Oh, oh. back. Got you handsome. So you two women in, you haven’t heard, uh, not right till right this minute. , Alex, you didn’t tell Justin. You know, we didn’t get a chance to connect, but uh, it’s not like it’s a big surprise or anything.

Well, he sure has missed you those last couple months. I’m sure he’ll be thrilled that you’re gonna be under the same roof. Right, yeah. I am gonna be pretty busy for the foreseeable future. I got a lot of businesses going on, but You know, I’m sure we’ll connect soon. Sure, I’ll have him penciled in soon into his calendar.

Right. Yeah. Okay, so where are your things? Movers are on their way. We should probably let Henderson know, right? You are welcome to alert him yourself. He’ll probably get the staff to come, you know, help you if you need it. Great Thank you so much Maggie for your hospitality. Honestly, it means so much. Of course, dear I am so happy that you are going to be living here

Look Melinda, I don’t want to get off my wrong foot here. Oh, is that what’s happening here? My only interest is in proving that my wife is innocent. Your wife who was convicted of murder. A murder that she didn’t commit. Now, EJ had no interest in righting that wrong, but I am hoping that you’ll Look, I am just getting settled back into the job here.

I haven’t made any decisions on any cases as of yet. All I’m asking is that you follow the law. Just out of curiosity, why didn’t your brother help you? Because EJ had his own personal agenda. But I believe that you are an honorable public servant. Plus, this could curry some favor from the police commissioner.

Oh, you understand I do not work for Commissioner Hernandez. Yes, I, I do understand that, but Wouldn’t it be a great message to restart your tenure as DA by bringing justice to Lee’s real killer? Look, like I said, I haven’t had a chance to look at the files yet. Could you look it over now? I’m sure that you will see that the new evidence that Commissioner Hernandez found is compelling and overwhelming.

Okay, I think I remember seeing the file around here someplace. Um, Ah, Here it is. The Lee Shin murder case. So does that mean you’re reviewing? Let me know as soon as someone gets a lead on Sloane Peterson. Thank you. And I want updates every 30 minutes. Listen, this just doesn’t make sense. Her passport, her driver’s license are still here, and her keys, they’re right here.

Well, obviously she left in a hurry. Which leads me to believe that she left a clue behind listening. We have officers at the airport, the bus and train stations, the APB, it is statewide. I just want you to find her because I want this to be over with. Yeah, we will. You have any idea how much of a head start Sloan has?

When was the last time you saw her? I assume she just left after I took Jude to Nicole, so, maybe a couple hours. Okay, that’s good. Salem PD is going to use every resource that we have. I also want to explore a couple other avenues.

We are never going to get that time back that Sloan took from us. And all those days and nights that we were away from our little boy. And I, I know holding him is going to make things better, but I can’t stop thinking about what we lost and how we suffered. Jude will heal us, Nicole. It’ll just take time, okay?

Yeah. I know, but I can’t seem to let go of all the questions I have about the details of that night. Very confusing to say the least. You know, after the accident, I trusted Dimitri to take our baby to the hospital because saving him was all that mattered. But when we got there and no one knew what was going on I think we were just all in shock.

The doctor not only told us that our child had died, but that had been accidentally cremated. We couldn’t even say a proper goodbye. E. G., that was awful. I thought I lost everything.

I never thought my life would be whole again. And it is now.

Now as far as how it all went down, the scheming, the manipulation You heard Eric. He and Rafe are going to make sure that Sloan faces the consequences. What about that doctor? And Dimitri, they owe us answers too. I suppose, yes. You know, I’m sorry E. J., but I don’t think Sloane pulled this off by herself.

She had to have had help.

So? I have to say, this is some interesting reading. Interesting? Yeah, uh, most of the cases that cross my desk are deadly dry, but this one, it has it all. Twists, turns, cliffhangers. I’m so glad you’re entertained. Listen, I can assure you that every piece of evidence in that folder has been thoroughly investigated.

All of the witnesses vetted and the bloody fingerprint on that black book, Rafe ran it himself. The brother of the accused ran the test. Well, I went through the lab, obviously. Obviously, I can’t take anything as fact until my office has run its own independent investigation. Well, sure. But you have to admit, these facts in this folder, seem pretty convincing in Gabby’s favor.

Do I? I’m sorry, what does that even mean? It means that Gabby Hernandez was found guilty of a crime by a jury of her peers. And as much as you and her brother want to paint a certain picture of innocence, that doesn’t make it true. What the hell, Melinda? You’re gonna review this case? Or do I need to go over your head?

Not sure if Constantine told you or not, but our plan is to move into the East Wing. Oh, that’s where the Hortons were living. Yes, I’m aware. But now that they’re gone, I’m thinking that should be a good enough space to suit our needs. Well, the East Wing it is. Henderson is, uh, cleaning it out now. All right, well, I’ll alert him to set up our rooms.

Rooms? Hold on, I thought we were sharing a room. Baby, this is the East Wing. This is a massive space. You’re gonna have a room. I’m gonna have a room. We’re gonna share a room. No more cramped apartment living. You know, and you’re gonna have a giant walk in closet that you’ve always dreamed of. And I’m gonna get you a wardrobe befitting for the, um, Someone with the cariocas air.

Someone with Really? Well, we haven’t really defined ourselves yet. We’re not really in the labels these days. Come on. Let’s go. Let’s go. We’ll set up. Okay. Thanks again, Maggie. Good luck.

What in the holy hell was that? What do you think the deal is with those two? That is a very good question. There are so many lingering questions about what happened the night of the accident and perhaps there always will be. But when I look into our son’s eyes, none of it matters. Nothing except making sure that he has the most incredible life a kid could ask for.

We need to count our blessings and focus on being the best parents we can be. I know. I’m trying, EJ. It’s just, Every time I think of Sloan, I just want to take my hands and wrap them around her neck. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. You’re right. You’re right. I, I, I cannot let my anger take over. Away this moment, you, my precious boy deserve a mommy who is present and loving and hopeful.

And we’ve wasted too much time not being a family. And I’m not going to waste any more time thinking about that. Horrible. Sorry to interrupt. Have you brought in Sloan? No. She’s gone. Without a trace.

Okay, just got off the phone with Justin. He was surprised to hear that Alex was moving back in. Okay, good surprise or bad surprise? Well, mostly good. I mean, he’s Mm hmm. Mm hmm. to be able to spend more time with Alex, but he voiced some concerns over, let’s see, how did he put it? Ah, yes. The corrosive nature of the Kyriakos fortune.

Mm hmm. Well, I share that opinion. See, I’m counting on Justin to be a good influence on Alex. Worked on me.

We’re back. Everything alright up there? Oh, my goodness, more than alright. I’m telling you, I’ve probably moved 50 times in my life. I have never had a personal maid unpack my things. Oh, you better get used to it. That’s our life now. Oh, okay. So, will you two be joining us for dinner? Absolutely, but I do want to check out the menu.

A cook is probably out in the garden now, and I’m sure he’ll be happy to go over the menu with you and offer any alternatives, if you’re not pleased. Great. Alright, well, I’m going to actually head down to the stable. I want to check a few things out. And maybe later we can go for a swim. Wow. Work on that breaststroke.

Oh, sounds good.

Wow, I could really get used to this. Yeah.

Let’s be clear about something, Mr. DiMera. I am not your brother, nor am I some toady from DiMera Enterprises. I am the District Attorney of Salem, and I will not be pushed around no matter what your last name is. I wasn’t trying to push you around. Oh, okay, so that wasn’t you who was threatening to go over my head, whatever the hell that means?

I was attempting to apply pressure. I am very anxious to bring my wife home. I understand. It must be terrible having her locked away. Away from you, away from her daughter. It is. But we can right that wrong together. Melinda, I know that you and I, well, our past hasn’t always been pleasant, right? But I need you to know that I hold you and this office in the utmost respect.

I appreciate that. I heard your press conference. You said that you were committed to making Salem a safer, more just place. Doesn’t that mean releasing innocent women from prison and getting killers off the streets? Stefan, I have no personal issue with reopening her case. As long as the facts, they, they check out.

But you and I both know that only a judge can make that decision. So you’d be willing to take it to court? The court is, is awfully backed up at the moment. Okay, all I’m asking is that you do your best. And I will wait as long as it takes. You’re not hearing me. You might be waiting forever.

You don’t know where Sun went. Not yet. I’m sorry. Just while I was bringing Jude to you, she obviously took off. You don’t have to apologize, Eric. You brought our son to us. I should have called police first. Well, you were just acting like a parent, and you did the right thing. She’s right. Jude is our priority, too.

Look, we all hope that Sloan faces the consequences, but That’s out of our hands. Uh, so what are you doing to, to find her? Well, we’ve put out an APB, but so far she’s eluded us. I mean, honestly, I don’t know what she was thinking to run like this. Well, obviously she was thinking that she didn’t want to face the consequences or me.

So instead of taking responsibility, she ran like a coward. Yeah. Why are you here, Riff? Excuse me? Why are you here wasting valuable time when you could be out there finding her and bringing her in? Well, actually, I have questions for you, that’s why.

I’m not sure how I could be of assistance. How would EJ know anything about where Sloan is? Well, Sloane took off without her passport, her driver’s license, even her credit cards. And, uh, her car is still there. She left with nothing? Nothing. Well, maybe she plans to go into hiding and change her identity. I mean, she’s changed her name before, right?

Right, yes. But last time, no one was looking for her. Do you think she actually has the resources to stay in hiding and start over? I don’t know. I wouldn’t suppose so. I can’t believe you were able to get this done so

fast. You hold in your hands everything you need to start a new life. Driver’s license, social security number, passport. There’s a number for a driver in there who will take you to Chicago and provide you with an airline ticket in your new name. And the money? The details of your offshore account are included.

You’ll discover that it has been generously funded to last you a lifetime. Well, I’ve, um, I’ve never been to the Amalfi Coast. Oh, you’re going to love it. Sand, sea, and sky. You’ll never want for anything. As long as you promise never to return to Salem. Or tell anyone that Eric is Jude’s biological father.

E. J. Based on my initial investigation, I tend to agree. Sloan was resourceful, but she wasn’t exactly flush with cash. No, she wasn’t. I don’t even know how she got this far. Right, exactly. Um, quite far, in fact, considering her resources were so limited. Yours, EJ, on the other hand, are not. What

the hell? Why would I have to wait forever until my wife’s case is reopened? Melinda, you are sitting on evidence that an innocent woman is in prison. Isn’t it your duty to see that justice is carried out? And I do want justice. But as long as we’re being honest here, I, I believe he already got it. My wife is not a killer.

Look, that’s debatable. But let’s start by talking through what we already know about the case. A motive. Everybody knows that Gabby hated Lee. He blackmailed her for months, forced her to stay in a loveless marriage. A lot of people had issues with Lee. But not Gil. The guy that you allege murdered Lee? He didn’t even know him.

He was a known criminal. So is your wife. You are wrong about this, Melinda. I suppose it’s, it’s possible. And look, I, I’m, I’m still open to the idea that things might possibly change, but from my professional opinion, what you have here, circumstantial evidence, bias witnesses, it is not enough to reopen this case.

Or free her. Goodbye, Mr. DeMiro. No, no, no. Listen to me, please. Look, look, look. Do me a favor. Close the door on your way out.

If there is anything you need, anything at all, you just let me know. I want you to, I don’t know, feel at home here. Thank you. Honestly, you’re so kind. I’m just so grateful that I, I can be somewhere where I don’t have to worry about Brenton Utilities. I’m just glad to help. I know about your struggles.

About Brady and Tate and your career. Um, I just hope you take this time to sort out your life. You know, to figure out, well, what you want to do next. Yeah, I hope so too. Your friend Alex seems to know exactly what he wants to do next. Well, now that he’s coming to all that money. Oh, yeah, he is. So focused and so confident and so rich.

You just be careful Teresa. Money has a way of changing people. Amen sister. And I’m going to speak with Alex. Why is something wrong? No, there’s nothing wrong at all. It’s just a family matter that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. Excuse me. Have at it Maggie. Okay.


You remind me of someone. I get that a lot. No. You remind me of me. I mean, sure, there are a few differences. I mean, I’m a little bit curvier. You’re a few years younger, but How exactly do I remind you of you? Well, it’s no secret that the first time I waltzed into this house, I had my eye on the prize, too.

Cariacas Cash? Yep. I tried to marry Victor to get it. But with Justin, it’s a whole different story. Seems to me, you’re going for door number one. Are you accusing me of being a gold digger? Oh, hey. No judgements here, sweetheart. Believe me. It’s perfectly fine to fall in love with a man and his money. As long as you’re not trying to con him like that miserable creep Constantine.

Word to the wise, stay away from that piece of garbage. I heard. You knew. As far as I’m concerned, as long as you love Alex, as much as you love his money. Look at me. Yeah? Do a poll for it.

What do my resources have to do with Sloane’s escape? What are you asking, Rafe? I am just saying that the DiMeras have resources well beyond what Sloan could muster on her own. Beyond what Salem PD could access, honestly. I’m sure that’s true. I’m sorry, you’re thinking that someone helped Sloan disappear?

I mean, no offense, DiMera like. That’s why we’re here. Okay, I still don’t understand. Okay, EJ, you and Nicole would like Sloan brought back to Salem, right? Of course. Yes, we want her to get what she deserved for taking our son. Right, exactly. Okay, so, it might be helpful if you were to, let’s say, reach out to some of your, uh, Connections that could possibly have insight on Sloan’s disappearance.

I see. You want our help in tracking Sloan in case this goes beyond the scope of the law. Well, I didn’t say that. But if you were to come up with some answers. Of course. Whatever you need. I’ll make some calls. Great. Okay. Excellent. Uh, I’ve got to get back to the station. Do you need a ride? Yeah, sure. Okay.

Um, you, do you want to say hi?

I don’t want to wake him up. Another time then.

You alright, pal? Yeah. No. No, no.

I know, man. It’s hard. Judy’s where you’re supposed to be. My heart.

Yeah. I know. I felt that pain. Yeah, I did. I had to turn David over after I was raising him all those months. It just doesn’t feel right. Reheal. He feels like my son. Yeah. It’s gonna feel that way for a while. Will. Hey. I’ve been through. Okay. I just want you to know that I am here for you. Whatever you need, okay?

Appreciate that. Yeah. And you know, I hated it. I hated it because people told me this all the time. But it’s true. Whatever you are feeling right now, It will get better over time. I promise. You’re right,

EJ. I cannot give any more of this energy to Sloan. And like you said, she will get what she deserves. But right now, I We do need to focus on Jude. I am very glad to hear you say that because we have a lot of work to do, starting with rebuilding the nursery. I can’t believe we’re starting over. I’ve already placed some orders.

We’ll have enough for at least the first week. Thank you for doing that. Of course, anything to make Jude’s transition as smooth as possible. And speaking of which, we do need to talk about your job. Right. I haven’t really thought about it. I know, I know, but you need to be honest with yourself about what you want.

Yeah. I mean, I can’t really see myself leaving Jude right now. I had a feeling you were going to say that. I will call Chad and talk to him about maternity leave. Okay. I know you love your job, but you need to take advantage of this happy time. No, um, I, I will. It’s just What is it?

I feel so lucky right now. And also a little guilty. Guilty? Why? Because now I, I have everything. And Eric lost everything. And he’s wanted to be a father for so long, and he’s had so many disappointments, and now this child’s been ripped away from him, and I feel for him. I do. But this is our child. Our son.

Eric was misled and duped. Okay, the happiness that we are experiencing right now should have been ours all along.

Maggie. Oh, you’re just the person I wanted to see. Likewise, I just came back from the stables. They’re an absolute mess. I mean, even the horses are embarrassed. It needs a complete renovation. When was the last time you actually had somebody go there and like, do the, like an inspection of the conditions of the stables?

Well, I can’t say for sure. Neither can I. Luckily, I have an architect who can come up with a whole new plan. He’ll create the whole thing and, uh, build it from scratch. I mean, it’s not gonna be cheap, but I can get a Titan construction crew out there and start demo right away. There is gonna be no construction on the grounds until after the weddings.

Weddings? Like plural? That’s right. Mine and Sarah’s. Xander and Sarah are engaged. Isn’t it wonderful? Sure. It’s great. Glad you agree. Yeah. I do hope that Teresa and I will be invited to the wedding though. We are family after all. We know Victor would want everybody to get along. The MDA. Do you have a minute?

Commissioner, if you’re here to talk about your sister, I’ll tell you what I already told Stephan DiMera about her case. I’m not here to talk about my sister. Well, not yet anyway. I promise you, we will be having that discussion very soon. I am here to talk about the disappearance of Sloane Peterson.

You’re family, Alex. And I think we can find a way to coexist in the house. Because that’s what family does. Why do I sense a but coming on? But I just want to be clear about the boundaries. Your boundaries or my boundaries? Both. Oh. I’m not going to roll over. And I’m not going to acquiesce to your every wish.

Now that you’re the Kiriakou’s heir. I mean, you talk about what Victor wanted, I promise you, he wouldn’t want you disrespecting his wife or anyone he cared about. Now, is that a warning? Oh, no, no, no, no. I just have limits. Yeah. And I have ideas, Maggie. About the stables. About this house. About the staff.

About how to shake off decades of stale thinking. Luckily, I am the future of this family and I’m going to take this family into the modern world. I hope. And I’m not going to hold back just because it might hurt your feelings.

Oh, well, so that’s what you think. This is all about my feelings. What else would it be about? I can tell you just love being in karaoke. You relish all the trappings of the lifestyle and the title and the power, and I don’t blame you. I’ve gotten caught up in it myself, at one time or another. But there’s more to it than a name.

So you’re saying you don’t think I understand? What it means to be Victor Sloan. I think that along with the perks, you’re going to discover a great deal of responsibility and sacrifice that comes along with it. And unless you’re ready to embrace all of it, you’re just merely playing at the job of being an heir.

What do you mean Sloan disappeared? Uh, well, she left the apartment that she shared with Eric just a few hours ago, took nothing with her, and vanished.

Sloane, promise me, promise that you will not take that little boy if you go on the run. I, I know you love him, but you just can’t do that. Don’t, don’t worry. I mean, maybe I can outrun the FBI, but E. J. DiMera Exactly.

If I do what E. J. says, maybe I get something out of it. If I admit that Jude’s Nicole’s, if I make Eric believe the lie that EJ’s the father, Uh, EJ helps me disappear. And you’ll be safe. Why would she do that? Because she got caught. Caught? Wait, where is her son? She didn’t take Jude with her, did she? Well, that’s interesting that you mention him.

I don’t know. He’s the reason that she took off. I don’t understand, Commissioner. Are you saying to me that you know nothing about this baby switch? Did you say baby switch? Okay. Sloan confessed to Eric that the adoption that you were helping to arrange many months ago fell through. But instead of telling Eric the truth Sloan somehow faked the death of EJ and Nicole’s baby so she could take him and raise him with Eric.

What? No. No, no. Sloan? She would not do something like that. I don’t believe it. You helped to arrange this adoption. You You honestly expect me to believe you knew nothing about this? That it had fallen apart? Once the details were confirmed, Sloan, she took over. As far as I know, Jude was the baby that they adopted.

She didn’t claim that I knew something, did she? No, Eric didn’t say that she mentioned you. But I have so many questions about this whole thing. Well, I do hope that you find Sloan soon. So do I. And I hope that I can trust you to see this through. Of course. You’re the DA now, and we need to be on the same side.

I am on the side of justice, for all who deserve it.

Oh my. Hey, hey, hey, shh. Please don’t slam the door. Sorry if I’m a bit frustrated, but if you had just reopened Gabby’s case when I asked you to. What the hell is this? You guys babysitting? No. This is our son. You what? Jude is awesome. I, I, I, I don’t understand. Short version, Sloane Peterson stole our baby and tried to play him off as hers and Eric’s adopted child.

Um, how the hell would she do that? That’s a good question. And so what, now she just decides to bring him back? No, Eric learned the truth and he brought June to us.

I can’t believe it. I’m so happy for you. For both of you. Thank you, Stefan. Yes, thank you.

I saw how badly you suffered when you thought you’d lost your child. My God, nobody

has the right to break a family apart. And sometimes the universe just makes things right. It shows us that miracles do happen.

Do we go from here? What’s the one thing we should do?

We were holding in our hearts The thing we wanted to


Seems we’ve lost that love too much

Temporary beauty was our crutch

Happily embracing an emptiness we’re chasing Cause we need to believe The light of love is shining bright, Will it get us through the night? What’s our story now? Ooo, Ooo What’s our story now?

What’s our story?

Alrighty. What did you end up getting? Well, I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.

Do you think that Jude. We’re like This. Well, I think he’s gonna love it. And I also think that I just One upped you. You went upside down, Pete. Uh, best grandma in the galaxy. And that you are. Oh, darling. I think I’m happy.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Laughing ]

Kyle: Hey, bud, how’d you like that ferris wheel?

Harrison: It was fun.

Claire: Thank you for grabbing my hand when I got a little bit scared. It was like you knew exactly when I needed some extra courage.

Kyle: You got scared, huh? How about you?

Harrison: I might have got a little nervous, just a little bit.

Claire: Really? I had no idea you were so cool under pressure.

Harrison: And the ducks were super hungry.

Kyle: Those ducks are getting chubby. I think you may be feeding them a little too much, sir.

Harrison: Nuh-uh.

Kyle: Well, go on up and get washed up for dinner, okay?

Harrison: Is claire staying?

Kyle: You know you’re more than welcome to, right?

Summer: Oh, my god, chelsea. My heart goes out to you and adam. Seriously. I know how hard it is to see your child suffer, especially when there’s nothing that you can do to take their pain away.

Chelsea: Yeah, it’s been very difficult. I feel helpless. Cut off from my son. Which is why I asked you to meet with me. Connor’s doctors say he’s ready for a visit from us.

Summer: That’s great.

Chelsea: It is. Um, but I’m afraid I have a huge ask.

Summer: Ask away.

Chelsea: Well, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate how supportive you’ve been to me. You know, not just as my boss, but as my friend. Um,, I feel like I really need to be more present and available for connor as he goes through this, so, I’m asking to take a leave of absence.

Summer: Of course. I mean, take whatever time you need, chelsea. Whatever connor needs.

Chelsea: Thank you. I know the timing couldn’t be worse.

Summer: We’re up against some deadlines for the winter collection, but…

Chelsea: Which is why I don’t wanna leave you in the lurch. I have a suggestion that I hope you’ll keep an open mind about.

Adam: I know that I’m gonna feel better once I can see connor’s face in person. You know, these video calls are just not cutting it.

Sally: I can imagine you’re relieved.

Adam: But I’m not looking forward to leaving you.

Sally: Well, we have tonight.

Adam: Yes. But there is something more that I, uh, I need to tell you.

Sally: I don’t know if I like the sound of that.

Adam: Okay, it’s nothing bad. At least I don’t think it is. I just– I wanna be completely up front with you so there’s no repeat of a misunderstanding. I don’t want you to get angry at me like you did when I spoke to my father about bringing your design company under the newman umbrella.

Sally: What did you do this time?

Jack: I’m actually feeling hopeful about ashley now that she and traci and alan are headed to paris. He seems convinced she experienced something significant that undermined her stability. Hopefully they’ll get to the bottom of whatever her problem is and work it out there.

Diane: Well, that’s– that’s good. But ashley’s not the only one I’m concerned about.

Jack: If you mean me…

Diane: Yes, I do. And how you’re dealing with all of this. Now that you have professional confirmation about ashley’s psychological problems and on the heels of everything that happened with nikki, it’s a lot. And I’m sure it’s weighing heavily on you.

Jack: It is a lot. You’re right. But I’m doing fine. I’m not fixating, I’m not spiraling, not having trouble functioning. I’m not in the least inclined to hide behind a haze of pills or anything else.

Diane: Well, I certainly hope that’s the case.

Jack: I want you to believe that. Look, as far as ashley goes, I am optimistic that once she gets to paris, she will turn a corner.

Tucker: Ashley’s in paris?

If you have wet amd,

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Summer: Okay, I will try to keep an open mind.

Chelsea: What you need is someone who’s a great designer, who knows how to launch a line, can manage a team, make sure everything is done on time. Very few people can seamlessly take that ball and run with it.

Summer: That is true. If you have somebody like that in mind, I mean, that’s– that’s great.

Chelsea: Okay, so I know you don’t have a great history with sally.

Summer: Sally?

Chelsea: I know, but listen, she’s changed. Trust me, I had my reservations about her at first too. But seeing how supportive and wonderful she’s been to adam when he’s had to handle all this very upsetting connor news, I think that’s just who she is as a person.

Summer: Okay, well, based on my experience with sally, she really had nowhere to go but up, so…

Chelsea: Okay, but you have to admit, from a creative and business perspective, she is very talented.

Summer: Sure, sally has put out some great designs, but, I mean, she’s not even in fashion anymore. She moved on to interior design.

Chelsea: Well, apparently she’s not happy with that decision. And, I mean, she is a fashion designer at heart. It’s, like, in her dna. And according to adam, she misses it.

Summer: I’m really not thrilled with this idea. Sure, it would solve some of the problems, but… it’s sally.

Adam: Okay, like I said, it’s not a bad thing. In fact, you may see it as a great opportunity.

Sally: Okay, now I am concerned. What– what is this opportunity?

Adam: Chelsea’s planning on taking a leave of absence from marchetti. She wants to have more time for connor. She wants to be available to focus on his needs. So, I asked her if she would suggest to summer that you fill in to finish the winter line.

Sally: Wait, you asked chelsea to pitch me to summer?

Adam: Yeah, but don’t get upset, okay? I did not commit to anything on your behalf. I just suggested it to test the waters out.

Sally: So, your ex is supposed to tell the woman who hates me, “hey, what about this option?”

Adam: You told me how much you miss working in fashion. And this possibility just opened up. I felt like I had to say something. I mean, anything to get you a shot at getting back to your dream, your one first love. I hope I didn’t do the wrong thing again.

Sally: I’m not upset. I’m not. How could I be? I mean, everything that you’re going through, and you still thought about me. I– you’re amazing.

Adam: I’m just relieved you’re not upset. And this could be a perfect thing for you.

Sally: How did chelsea respond?

Adam: She sees the logic. She’s totally open to the idea.

Sally: Wow. Okay, well, I’d have to thank her for that. And yeah, yeah, it would be an amazing opportunity for me right now. I’m just not gonna hold my breath. I mean, the likelihood of summer actually wanting to work with me is probably slim to none.

Adam: Come on, you don’t know that. There is a chance that she’s let go of the acrimony between you. You’re talented, and you’ve got a lot of business savvy. Summer’s father had enough faith in you to back your business. Nick’s opinion counts for a lot. So with some luck, you know, maybe summer will recognize that this could be a smart move for marchetti.

Sally: I really appreciate your faith in me. But it’s a long shot, adam. It’s great. But it’s not likely. And I really do not wanna spend our last night together for a while talking about me and my career.

Adam: Well, I did not want tonight to be all about business either. And I can think of a few more appealing topics.

Sally: You can, can you?

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Sally: Like what?

Adam: I think we deserve something special before I go back to the east coast. Don’t you?

Jack: This is a private conversation. Just because you overheard something doesn’t mean you’re entitled to know more.

Tucker: Yeah, but I thought I overheard you say that ashley’s in paris. Is that something dr. Alan approved of? Has he weighed in on her diagnosis yet?

Diane: Tucker, now is not the time.

Jack: Where ashley is, what she does, what her diagnosis is, is none of your damn business.

Tucker: Jack, don’t you realize by now that I only have the best intentions for her and her recovery at this point? Oh, I guess he didn’t tell you that I was the one who brought her home after she collapsed.

Jack: Why would I tell her anything about you? You have nothing to do with this.

Tucker: Oh, really? Nothing to do with it? She hit on me, you know. She wants to start back up with me again.

Diane: Tucker, I think you heard what you wanna hear.

Tucker: No, no. She wants me to believe that we could still have everything we might have had as a couple. But I am not gonna go there with her, so I took her home.

Diane: Well, good for you. But I’m wondering why you suddenly decided to be her hero. What’s– what’s in it for you?

Tucker: Nothing. I just don’t wanna make matters worse for her. ‘Cause I still care about her, believe it or not.

Jack: As if you ever did.

Tucker: Yes, I did. I still do. So why don’t you tell me what she’s doing in paris?


Summer: Chelsea, I really appreciate you trying to find a fix for this. I’m gonna need to think about it.

Chelsea: I understand. And I’m sorry I’m not giving you much notice.

Summer: Well, personal issues don’t really adhere to a work schedule. It– it’s fine. It– it will get handled.

Chelsea: This is really stressing you out, isn’t it?

Summer: No. Not this. Well, I mean, not just this. A couple of things have come up recently. It requires me to make a big decision. And to trust people that I have a very good reason not to. Actually, you might wanna get a refill. I have a lot to catch you up on.

Claire: Thanks for the invite, but I should get home.

Harrison: I wish you could stay. We had the best day ever.

Claire: Oh, I had the best day too. But fingers crossed we’re gonna have even better days, you and me.

Kyle: That’s right. Go on, dinner’s almost ready.

Claire: So… do you think that summer was being sincere about considering me for the nanny position? Or was she just being polite?

Kyle: In front of harrison? She wouldn’t get his hopes up just to shoot them down.

Claire: I guess I’m nervous about getting my hopes up too, so I’m being cautious.

Kyle: I mean, summer had to have seen how happy and comfortable harrison was around you. I mean, how could she not? And I told her that being around you puts his little mind at ease, so it makes sense that she’d be open to reconsidering her position on this.

Claire: Open’s great, but that doesn’t mean it’s a done deal. I mean, it must still be hard for summer to trust me. Why should she?

Sally: Dinner was perfect.

Adam: And so were you.

Sally: I’m gonna miss you. But my heart will be with you the entire time you’re in maryland.

Adam: It helps to hear that. I am a little tense about going. I have this constant worrying in the pit of my stomach, you know, just wanting him to be okay. We haven’t seen him in person since we dropped him off at the facility. I mean, it feels like forever.

Sally: Well, maybe that’s been good for connor. He’s probably been improving every day.

Adam: No, that’s what worries me. You know, how will our trip affect him? Is it gonna help or is it gonna trigger a setback? Are we selfish to go? Is this more about us than him? You know, ’cause the last thing that I wanna do is set him back anymore or undo any progress.

Sally: Adam, come on. Don’t create negative scenarios around the unknown. Seeing you and chelsea may be exactly what connor needs right now. Having in-person time with his parents could make all the difference in the world.

Adam: You think so?

Sally: I mean, the doctors would tell you otherwise, wouldn’t they?

Adam: Oh, they sure would.

Sally: I am sure connor misses you. And having the comfort of the people that love him more than anything in this world could really, really lift his spirits.

Adam: Well, I hope you’re right.

Sally: But, connor will be taking cues from you and chelsea. So, if you’re tense, he’s gonna know it.

Adam: Well, that’s the last thing that I want. I don’t want him to worry about us.

Sally: Right.

Adam: Or our feelings.

Sally: So, then all you need to do is be the calm, devoted, insightful father that he loves and adores.

Adam: You always know the right thing to say. Especially when I need to hear it the most. And I can’t tell you how much I love you for that. Among other things.

Jack: Okay, fine. You wanna know why ashley’s in paris. Alan seems to think that this situation with ashley stems from an incident that happened after her fight with you.

Tucker: Please don’t tell me you’re trying to convince her or alan that it was our fight in paris that’s the underlying cause of these issues. Really? Just blame tucker again?

Jack: No, no. This isn’t about tucker mccall for once, or about your little fight. I said it was after the conflict, but you blew right by that.

Tucker: Oh. In that case, I’m sorry. I apologize. Please go on.

Jack: Do you have any clue as to what might have happened after? Anything that might inform this conversation?

Tucker: No, I wish I did. But, I came right back here after the fight and I didn’t see or talk to ashley until much later after she got back. So is the plan that dr. Alan’s taking her back there so she can face the trauma head-on? Sounds reasonable.

Diane: I’m glad you approve.

Tucker: I wish her the best. And I will– I will try not to run into her while I’m there.

Jack: Wait. You’re going to paris as well?

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Diane: Tucker, seriously? You’re going to paris? What is wrong with you?

Tucker: My trip was already booked, diane. Would you like to see my itinerary? It’s a business trip for glissade, which is headquartered there, if you recall.

Jack: Oh, yes, I do recall. A convenient coincidence, isn’t it? God, I’m so sorry I told you anything about ashley’s whereabouts. It’s just the kind of information you would abuse.

Tucker: Don’t you get tired of this? Always playing the blame game with me?

Jack: Oh, I am sick and tired of it. But for what it’s worth, it’s not a game. I have no doubt in my mind you played some role, however minor, in what’s happening to ashley right now. And no, I don’t trust you not to interfere and drag her further back. Stay the hell away from ashley.

Tucker: I intend to, jack. The last thing I would like to do is muddy things for her. If she’s truly serious about dealing with this.

Jack: If?

Tucker: Yeah, her decisions have not exactly been set in stone lately. That’s not a judgment on her, that’s just an observation.

Jack: You don’t get to doubt ashley, or question her judgment. You don’t get to have any questions about anything in her life. You understand that?

Tucker: May I be a concerned observer in that case? And no matter what her diagnosis is, or whatever…

Jack: This is none of your business, do you hear me? And you care to keep this to yourself. The last thing ashley needs right now is her personal life dragged around by outsiders.

Tucker: I haven’t told anyone.

Jack: Good, keep it that way.

Tucker: Of course I told you a while ago, didn’t I? And what did you do? Instead of listening, you just went off on me. Because you’re part of the problem, jack. Yeah, you’re part of the reason she didn’t get the attention she needed when she needed it. Now, I would love nothing more than for her to beat this thing, and go back to being the person she was. Do you?

Jack: Boy, we can’t get that bastard out of our life, can we? If he does anything to jeopardize her recovery…

Diane: You know what, jack? Maybe we should just accept what tucker’s saying.

Jack: What?

Diane: I mean, I– I don’t like him or trust him either, but think about it. What motive does he have for interfering?

Jack: Oh, far be it for me to try to guess at his motivations. All I know is he could do real damage now that ashley has finally agreed to get help. Seeing him on the streets of paris would trigger her immediately.

Summer: Kyle wants to hire my new cousin claire as harrison’s nanny.

Chelsea: Oh, victoria’s daughter.

Summer: Yeah.

Chelsea: Adam mentioned her. Is she qualified? I don’t know much about her.

Summer: Oh, my god, chelsea, it is so ugly. I mean, it’s beyond ugly. It was very dangerous. Basically, claire came to genoa city with a mandate from her crazy aunt to get in good with the newmans.

Chelsea: A mandate?

Summer: Yes. Her aunt, jordan. She’s been out to destroy the entire newman family for years. All because of this slight to her late sister that happened decades ago. So she was using claire, and the two of them poisoned basically my whole family. They tried to kill my dad, my grandparents, my aunt victoria, I mean, claire’s own mother. And if her aunt jordan weren’t dead, she would be trying to finish the job. And all of the newmans have just forgiven her. They’ve welcomed claire back into the family, and now she’s supposed to look after my kid.

Chelsea: Wow. That was a lot that happened in a very short amount of time.

Summer: I know. And the whole thing is like, “poor claire.” That’s what everybody says. She’s jordan’s victim, because she had to deal with all the psychological damage from 20 years of brainwashing. And– and I– I get that. I do. What I don’t understand is how they just trust her suddenly. I– I can’t do that. I’ve been the lone holdout because I have to protect my son.

Chelsea: Yeah. I mean, I’m a firm believer in having caution, especially where our kids are involved. We need to protect them at all costs. I don’t know. I mean, if the newmans of all people have come to accept claire after everything she did, they must trust her. They must see something in her that gives them confidence. Maybe eventually, one day, you’ll be able to see that too.

Kyle: So, are you trying to talk yourself out of a job?

Claire: No, no, no. I’m just saying, look at me. On paper, I shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near a kid. Or an adult. Or anyone, really.

Kyle: Well, this isn’t on paper. This is in person. And practically everyone has said you were a good fit as harrison’s nanny.

Claire: Well, that makes me feel really good. But if summer can’t overlook my history, no hard feelings. I get it.

Kyle: Well, don’t worry. Summer wouldn’t have said anything if she wasn’t seriously considering it.

[ Cell phone buzzes ]

Kyle: Hmm. Well, I can’t be sure what this means, but summer says she’s on her way over. To talk.

Adam: Hey, something just hit me.

Sally: Something good or something bad?

Adam: Well, potentially something great. But that depends on you.

Sally: Okay. What is it?

Adam: Move in with me.

Did you know…

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Summer: Claire, hey. I didn’t know that you’d be here. Is everything okay with harrison?

Kyle: Yeah, he’s upstairs getting washed up for dinner. I’m happy to report today was a massive success.

Claire: The ferris wheel was a big hit. So were the ducks.

Summer: Good. I’m glad. And, um, actually, I’m glad that you’re here. I was thinking about our conversation in the park and I– I wanted to follow up on that.

Kyle: Have you made a decision about the nanny position?

Summer: Not yet. There were some questions that I wanted to ask.

Claire: I’m ready to answer anything and everything that you wanna know.

Summer: Well, um, okay. Most importantly, what would you do in case of an emergency?

Claire: I would call 911 immediately, depending on the severity of the emergency, and then I would text or call you and kyle.

Summer: Do you have any first aid training?

Claire: I took a course in high school, so I know the basics, including cpr. Do you have any qualifications in childcare, like a certificate or a degree or diploma? Anything like that?

Claire: No, but I’ve been doing extensive research on childcare.

Summer: What have you learned so far?

Claire: So much. I’ve learned that children harrison’s age need to have an established schedule, and I would be responsible for honoring it at all times when I’m with him. I would also need to know his likes and dislikes, things like how much outdoor time is best for him. What kind of after school activities would you do with him?

Claire: First, I would limit his screen time. It’s fine to have a little bit, but there are just so many other things to do for fun. I love art and music, and it seems like he does too, so we would paint or draw or color while listening to music. Maybe we could get a keyboard and figure it out together. You guys would be more than welcome to join the jam sessions.

Summer: Well, you’ve clearly put a lot of thought into this, and you’ve done your homework.

Claire: It’s been really fun for me. But on the flip side, I understand the trauma that harrison has faced. Not just the recent abduction, but my mom filled me in on the whole history with his biological mother and the man he thought was his father. And I can relate to those feelings of abandonment and– and confusion that harrison must have felt.

Summer: Kyle and I have done everything in our power to mitigate the damage from all of those early losses.

Claire: And that is what is so beautiful about your family. You have dealt with every trauma. It’s obvious that he still sees the world as a magical place that he can’t wait to explore. That adorable, caring, and resilient little boy is a testament to your love.

Sharon: Chelsea! Nice to see you! How’s connor? How are you?

Chelsea: Um, honestly, things are a lot rockier than I’d hoped. And right now, I’m not sure how much rockier they’re going to get.

Sally: Wait, you want me to move in with you?

Adam: I want… is it too out of left field? You look shocked.

Sally: No, I’m not shocked. I’m just surprised.

Adam: Even though you’re here most nights?

Sally: I mean, yeah, that’s true.

Adam: And I mean, you have stuff in the bathrooms and extra outfits in the closet, just in case.

Sally: Yeah, I mean, that’s also true.

Adam: And this place, it’s pretty great.

Sally: I’m not arguing any of that. Look, we don’t have to talk about this tonight. I mean, you’re getting ready to go out of town.

Adam: But, I’m not gonna be gone long. You could move in while I’m gone. I mean, take over the closet to your– your heart’s content. Redecorate if you want.

Sally: This is a really big decision, adam.

Adam: I mean, look, I know that you have housekeeping at the club, but you know what they say. There’s no place like home.

Sally: That’s a really loaded word, you know.

Adam: It is. Home means something constant. Something you can count on. It’s a place where you can recharge and be yourself. There’s something to be said about having your own key and your own refrigerator with your own food. Your own bed. I mean, look, I know that it’s a very big step.

Sally: Yeah, it’s a huge step, especially when things are so up in the air for you right now. Adam, please look at me. You don’t have to give me my own closet and my own key to know that you can count on me. You know that, right? I’m not going anywhere.

Adam: Well, maybe I want you to know you can count on me.

Sally: That sounds beautiful. But I am gonna take a moment to think about this. And I really want you to do the same.

Adam: Hmm. Well, take all the time you need. But just know how much this would mean to me. Think of how happy we would be. Let me give you a place to call home. It was one thing when my mom got alzheimer’s,

Sharon: You must be so happy finally getting to see connor again in person.

Chelsea: Happy, yes. But also torn between excitement and absolute terror.

Sharon: Well, there’s nothing to fear in seeing your son.

Chelsea: I know. You know what? I think I’m just– I think I’m just missing billy. You know, he’s my– he’s my touchstone. He keeps me grounded.

Sharon: Well, don’t sell yourself short, okay? I know that you have a wealth of strength and a bottomless reserve of love and compassion for connor. And that’s exactly what he needs right now.

Chelsea: Well, thank you for the kind words, sharon. But I’ve really had to rely on a lot of people to get through this. Adam, actually, being one of them, he’s surprised me through this journey.

Sharon: Yeah. When he lets himself care, I think he has a lot more to offer than even he realizes.

Chelsea: It’s true. And don’t get me wrong. I mean, he certainly has stumbled, but so have I. Overall, though, throughout this whole thing, he’s been really open and caring and compassionate. I’m grateful that I could rely on that.

Sharon: Well, I love that for you. And for him. You know, adam can really rise to the occasion just when you need it the most.

Hold me steady now

and I need your solid ground

to carry on

’cause I’m not ready

so hold me steady

Summer: Look, I appreciate all the research that you’ve done for harrison’s sake. He really is such a special little boy, and he has experienced a lot of loss. But that joy that he has, the excitement to meet every day, I want, well, I mean, we want to nurture that.

Kyle: And the projects and the music and the rest, we love that.

Claire: Your son is so sweet. And I feel like we’ve bonded after everything we’ve been through. I guess, privately, I was hoping that you would change your mind about me. So, yeah, I did a little bit of research. But also because I feel like this is my career path, working with kids. It feels right.

Kyle: You’ve definitely gotten a good start.

Claire: Well, I wanted to learn as much as I could so that I could get a strong sense of harrison. So I could best serve his needs. And, to be honest, I– I’m envious of how lucky he is to have such loving and supportive parents.

Summer: Okay. We get it. You don’t have to lay it on so thick. It’s fine.

Claire: I must sound so serious. Um, well, I mean every word of it. And I’m not looking for pity here. But I would’ve loved to have grown up with parents who put their child first. Makes the world a different place when you know where you belong and who you belong with.

Audra: I got your message, tucker. How did you find out I was in paris? Are you keeping tabs on me?

Tucker: No, I’m not.

Audra: What part of I’m done with you don’t you understand?

Tucker: If that’s the case, why would you be meeting with personnel at the companies glissade acquired?

Audra: So you are tracking my every move.

Tucker: No, uh, I’m not. Um, what part of all or nothing don’t you understand? You walked away from me. You walked away from everything.

Audra: Okay, just because you think that way doesn’t mean I do. You and I are done. Glissade and I are not.

Tucker: Audra, do you really think that’s how this is gonna work? I’m afraid you’re very mistaken. (Vo) struggling with moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Audra: You’re stalking me, tucker, and I’m not gonna stand for it. So you better tell whoever is tailing me to back the hell off.

Tucker: I am not stalking you, I’m not keeping tabs on you. An employee at glissade contacted me to ask me if i would be attending the meeting with ms. Charles. A meeting I had no awareness of and did not approve of.

Audra: I can meet with whomever I wish. You don’t control me.

Tucker: But I do control glissade, audra. So that’s why I canceled that meeting. And then I heard that you were uh, meeting with the companies that glissade acquired, so I canceled those too. Stay away from glissade. It’s you… you walked away from me. And that means you have nothing to do with glissade, okay?

Audra: We’ll see about that.

Summer: Harrison does enjoy spending time with you. And honestly, seeing him so worried about you just hurts my heart. So maybe this is the answer. Maybe if he can see that you’re okay, he can go back to being his normal, adorable self. So, I guess with that and all the research that you’ve done and knowing that kyle is already on board, I would like to offer you the position. On a trial basis.

Harrison: All washed and clean.

Kyle: Ah, good job, buddy.

Harrison: Mom, are you staying for dinner?

Kyle: Well, I have good news. Everything’s all worked out. So are you still okay with claire being your new nanny?

Harrison: Yay!

Jack: Hey there. Did we miss a party or a celebration?

Kyle: Well, summer and I just hired claire as harrison’s new nanny.

Jack: Well, congratulations, claire, and welcome.

Adam: Look, I know that– that it’s too late for me to ask for favors for myself, so I’m not gonna start now. But… please just help my son make it through this and get better. And please help chelsea have the strength to get him there. Okay, what happens to me, I– I probably deserve. But them, just– just look out for them and help them get to the other side of this. They deserve that. And so much more. Please.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


another visit? I had to come. I hear you stabbed yourself for me.

Yesterday I saw you dining alone? How you doing there? I can’t believe he’s really gone. I know. Keep looking at the present he got us, thinking he was just holding this. Such a sweet and thoughtful gift. Unexpected but perfect. Typical of your dad. I feel like i should be doing something, but all I want to do is sit here right now. Hey, then that’s what you should do. You know, I’m going to make myself useful and, um, start unpacking our suitcases.

[ Sighs ] This is so surreal. We’re supposed to be on our honeymoon right now. I know.

[ Knock on door ] Are you expecting anyone? No. Somebody probably found out about my dad. I’m not sure I can handle any more sympathy right now. Don’t worry. I will get rid of whoever it is. Ah. Fair samantha, come in. Thank you. Oh, gosh.

[ Chuckles ] Welcome to my humble workspace. You can never have too many external hard drives. -That’s what I always say. -So, you know, I’ve been thinking about what we discussed at the wedding. So much was going on. And, you know, of course, I was naturally, deeply troubled by the revelation that jason was coerced into working for the fbi. So upon further reflection, I feel like I just have to re-emphasize that tangling with the federal bureau of investigation is highly ill-advised. What do you mean, spinelli? Are you saying that you don’t want to help me anymore? It’s, uh — it’s late. Something happen? You tell me. You don’t have any bruises, huh? Why would I? Last night you got in the middle of sonny attacking dex.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Obviously, I’m dining alone — by choice. So feel free to move on. My salad is getting cold. What are the odds? Both of us choosing the same diner? I think you’re following me. Go away. I haven’t even ordered yet. How’s the food? Now, fergus, am i gonna have to report you to your own disciplinary committee for harassment? I’ll leave you to your salad and your novel momentarily. But first, I’m curious. Why now? Is that a metaphysical question? You were disbarred years ago, but yet you weren’t even interested enough to show up in person to hear the verdict or to file an appeal. And yet, here you are on a pilgrimage to albany, where the fate of your law career hangs in the balance. So I’ll repeat the question — why appeal now? Chase, I’m so sorry about your father. He was a wonderful man. I will cherish him always. Thank you. I know he really enjoyed your friendship, too. We appreciate you coming by, but, um — I brought you something. This is in lieu of a casserole, which I couldn’t make anyway. I brought you this. Oh, my. Barolo? Wow, this isn’t easy to find here. Well, the two of you should really be on your honeymoon, strolling arm in arm through a piazza under the moonlight. And since that isn’t possible, I thought I’d bring a taste of italy to you. -Thank you. -It’s very generous. Thank you for everything. I’m going to go open one of these up. I’m glad to have a chance to thank you for being such a good friend to my dad at a time when he really needed one. That’s very kind, but I would prefer to skip the platitudes, if you don’t mind. I haven’t changed my mind, per se. And, you know, if jason had asked me directly, I’d gladly do anything I could, but… going behind jason’s back feels wrong. You know how much jason trusts you. I think the only reason why he hasn’t contacted you is ’cause he doesn’t want to drag you into this. It is very jason-like to try to handle everything on his own. It is still near impossible for me to believe that he’s been acting as an fbi informant. I know, which means they must have something on him, something huge, spinelli. I mean, what sort of circumstance could force him to be an fbi informant? I don’t know, but that’s what we need to figure out. De x came to my office earlier.Interesting conversation. Said sonny had attacked him and you intervened and kristina witnessed it, obviously traumatized by it. Why wouldn’t she be? It’s a hell of a thing to see your father do. Is dex pressing charges? No. He — he decided that he didn’t want to do that to kristina. Thank you. Don’t thank me. It was dex. He made the call. Do you agree with him? Yeah, I do. I mean, if we could get a conviction, what, sonny would serve two years max. Better to wait to bring sonny to justice with a charge that carries a longer sentence. So why are you here? Well, I heard dex’s version of events… …and now I need to hear yours. Well, normally, I’d send flowers, but my options were somewhat limited in prison. Ah. And a self-inflicted wound was the next best thing, huh? See, you, you get me. -Let me see the scar. -[ Laughs ] Well, unfortunately, my wound is bandaged, so the scar will have to remain a mystery for now. But if it makes you feel any better, pretty epic. I look forward to seeing it at another time. So are you gonna tell me what really happened? Some thug jumped me in the showers, uh, waited until I was vulnerable, then he made his move. Oh. I’m not buying it. -Why not? -Aren’t you a spy? Well, that’s not the job title on my business cards, but, uh, I suppose that’s an accurate description of my skills. Exactly. And with your experience, you would never let yourself be that vulnerable. And I’ll bet that you could outpower most of the prisoners at pentonville. Well, maybe I did just want to see you. Well, I understand that. I am good company.

[ Chuckles ] But I don’t believe that you would leave a liter of your blood on the shower floor for a chance meeting with me. So what’s really going on?

It’s not a platitude. It is the truth. I’m sorry. That came out all wrong. You’d think, with all the people I’ve lost in my life, that I would be able to do this better, but it just never gets easier. I’m sorry for offending you. It’s fine. I didn’t mean to snap at you. Tu rns out I’m not very goodat this grief stuff. You know, if it had been up to me… …your father and I really never would have been friends. I don’t know if you noticed, but, um, I have acquaintances but very few friends. That’s because I find most people annoying. But not your father. Caring about him as much as I did sort of… it snuck up on me. Yeah, he — he does, uh… he did that to people. He was… warm and engaging and never self-pitying, even when his illness gave him every right to be angry and feel sorry for himself. That was one of the most impressive things about him. He faced the end of his life with great dignity and courage. Chase, you should be very proud of him. I am. I’m so proud. And that is why it is killing me that — that I, uh…

[ Sighs ] That you what? It doesn’t matter. Oh, chase. If there’s one thing that I learned from my husband luke’s death, it’s that regrets only bring you more pain. And I don’t think your father would want that for you. So if, in fact, there is something that’s bothering you, you need to let it go. I can’T. Why not?

[ Sniffles ] Because it’s all my fault.

[ Sniffles ] My dad pushed himself so hard because I asked him to officiate my wedding. I wanted him up there so bad at the altar that I didn’t even think about what it would do to his body. That wedding was too much for my dad, and that is why — oh, chase. Do not do this to yourself. Clearly you think there’s some big secret here. But there’s really nothing nefarious about this. It just took me a long time to recognize what a huge miscarriage of justice my disbarment was.

[ Scoffs ] I don’t buy that for a second. Well, it’s a good thing your opinion doesn’t matter then. I think you’ve been playing the long game, biding your time until you figure everybody forgot about what you did so you could sneak back in the side door and plead procedural violations to get your law license reinstated with minimal pushback.

[ Sighs ] I cannot believe how well you know me. You’re right. This was all part of my master plan, because now I have the legal system just where I want it. Oh, stop painting yourself as some sort of helpless victim. You clearly are not helpless. You have an excellent command of the law, and you are nobody’s victim. You essentially did this to yourself. With a lot of help from you. And on that note, I have a question for you. What’s the real reason that you made it your mission to keep me from practicing law? That’s a bit of an exaggeration. Is it? Because you went out of your way to track ava down to get her to sign that affidavit against me. It’s very complicated. Uh, you wouldn’t understand. Oh, well, maybe if you talk real slow and I can try and sound out the big words, I might be able to keep up. I’ve offended you. That wasn’t my intention. I’m not offended. I don’t like being lied to. My evasiveness has nothing to do with your intelligence. I think you are extremely smart. But as you said, I’m a spy. And these are spy games. All that entails. Everyone plays fast and loose with the truth, and everyone has a double or triple motive. It is, to quote a master of our craft, a wilderness of mirrors. Nothing is as it appears to be. So you’re not really guilty. Is that where you’re going with all this? I’m in prison because I’ve been accused of being the head of pikeman. But I haven’t been tried yet for my alleged crimes because they’re afraid of what would come out in a courtroom. So there I sit. Well, everyone is entitled to due process. But you’re not exactly innocent. Not by a long shot. But neither are any of the people that I’m playing against. And that includes anna devane. I didn’t see the fight start. When I got there, sonny was kicking dex, and I just — I just pulled him off. How did you even know the fight was happening? I mean, I could see that sonny wasn’t happy that dex was at the reception, and I just, you know, had a bad feeling. Rightly so. And when sonny followed dex out, I — I went after them just in case. And you found sonny attacking dex? Anything else? Dex has already decided he’s not going to press charges. This isn’t an interrogation. It’s informational for me, jason. I’m trying to understand what the hell is going on with sonny. Is it off the record? Yeah. I mean, he lost it. He threatened to kill me and dex. What exactly did he say? -I’m sure dex told you. -No, I need to hear it from you.

[ Sighs, clears throat ] He said, uh — sonny said something about emptying a gun in both of our heads. Oh, gosh. I-I — I do not understand how sonny would allow something like this to happen in a public place where anyone could witness it. I mean, I was — I was 200 feet away, not to mention the bride and groom and bride’s extended family, who, for all intents and purposes, seem to think that sonny walks on water. They certainly wouldn’t if they saw that, though. No, they wouldn’T. Do you think that sonny would try to have you and dex killed?

Officiating your wedding was the honor of your father’s life. You saw him at the reception. He was fully present and over the moon watching you in brook lynn. But you saw what happened to him during the vows. I mean, what if that was too much for him? What if it was exactly the opposite? Your father was struggling recently. But he was determined to seeyou and brook lynn married. Officiating your wedding was the thing that was keeping him going. It’s what kept him alive. I never thought about it like that. Sometimes we get too close to a situation to really see it clearly. You trusted him to officiate. You didn’t infantilize him. You made sure he had his dignity to the end of his life. Do not punish yourself for his death. It was sad and unfair. But sometimes that’s just the way life is. And it’s nobody’s fault, least of all yours. But I tell you something else. I never heard your father brag… …except… when he talked about you and finn.

[ Chuckling ] He was so proud of you. He loved to talk about you. He never stopped talking about you. In fact, it was his only truly annoying quality.

[ Laughs ] Oh, man. I think that was the first time I laughed since I got the news. Glad I could amuse you. Care to let me in on the joke? You had to be there. Okay. Here you go. Oh, uh, actually, I cannot stay. So you two enjoy this. And don’t bother to show me out. This place is the size of a postage stamp. Don’t listen to my grandmother. It’s just who she is. She calls them like she sees them. Spinelli, I would not be involving you if I thought I could do this alone. But there’s no way I can hack into the fbi’s system by myself. Finding evidence like that is next to impossible. Jason is far too important of an asset. Whatever they have against him, the fbi will be protecting with their strictest of security protocols. Look, I know that I am asking a lot, maybe even too much, but I would never be asking for your help if it were just for me or — or for jason. But please, spinelli. Do it for danny. He is just a kid, and he’s been through so much already. And he adores his father. And he just got him back. I don’t know what danny would do if he lost jason again. You know, there was a time I would have told you that sonny would never think about targeting me. Because you two were so close. Because it would be the wrong call. I mean, something happens to me, something definitely happens to dex? Sonny’s the first suspect. He’s got to know the pcpd and the fbi will do whatever it takes to put him away for life. Of course. I mean, the sonny that I knew was smart, he was cool-headed. There were lines that he would not cross. I’m hoping that’s still the case. But you can’t be certain anymore. Anna and I go way back. We came up in the wsb together. We worked side by side on, uh, ah, too many ops to count. Which may be why anna suspects me of all kinds of nefarious things. A few of which I’ve actually done. But no one is innocent in our world. That’s just how it works with espionage. It’s hard enough to navigate that twisted universe when you’ve been trained for it, and you clearly haven’t been. What is that supposed to mean? If you were a spy, you never would have made the mistake of visiting me at pentonville. And here I thought you enjoyed that visit. I did. Which is why it pains me to say this, because I worry it means this will be the last time you come see me. But you have no idea what you gave me that time. Okay. You’re a spy. Former head of the wsb. Mm-hmm. I assume, even in prison, you have a way of keeping yourself in the loop. Mm-hmm. What could I have possibly told you that you don’t already know? Well, allow me to give you your first lesson in espionage. A good spy never tells.

Really have to hand it to my grandmother. She really knows her stuff about wine. This is exactly. What I needed tonight. Yeah. Me, too. Something wrong with that sip?

[ Sighs ] No. No, actually, I’m really enjoying it. Good. It’s just crazy how fast everything can change. I mean, one minute, we’re about to go enjoy our honeymoon. And the — the next, I’m getting the worst news of my life. It’s like I have whiplash. Does that make sense? It does. Chase, you are grieving an incredible loss. I know how much pain I’m in. And it must be even worse for finn. I mean, dad is the last parent that he had left. So how can I blame him for drinking when I’m — I’m doing it, too? Your situations are very different, though. You don’t have a problem with alcohol. Finn’s in recovery. -Yeah. Alcohol is dangerous for finn in a way that it just isn’t for you. Yeah, you’re right. I talked to finn when you took violet on a walk. Mm-hmm. He said he’s aware that he broke his sobriety and what that means. And he told me to pour out the rest of the bourbon. And then he promised he would never have another drink. That’s good. I’m not saying that it isn’t a big deal that he had a drink because he’s been sober for so long, but… …finn is the one that found dad. Every time I think about what that must have been like, I… look, I don’t — I don’t want to add to how much finn is already beating himself up. If I’m as supportive as possible, I-I know… I know that I can get him through this without another drink. Okay. That’s what you’re going to do. And I’ll be right by your side supporting him through it. Thank you. Hacking into the fbi is a federal crime which can land us both in prison for life. Are you willing to chance losing your freedom over this? I would never risk being separated from my family if I didn’t think it was absolutely necessary for both danny and jason.

[ Knock on door ] Knock, knock. Sorry I’m late. James was refusing to eat his broccoli. Ooh. Sam, hi. Maxie, hi. It was so great seeing you guys at brook lynn’s wedding. Dante was really getting his groove on.

[ Chuckles ] After everything he’s been through, it’s nice to see him doing so well. I know. Right? He’s, like, basically back to his old self again. The doctors are really amazed how quickly his recovery has been. -I really love that. -Me, too. You know what? I am, uh — I’ve got to get going, but why don’t the four of us grab dinner sometime? On me. That sounds great. Right, spinelli? -Yeah? -Offer most delightful, yes. Okay, so I’ll call you, and we’ll schedule something? -Yeah. -Okay. Think about what I said? I’ll be in touch. Bye, maxie. -Bye. That was cryptic. I’m guessing I interrupted something? What is it sam wants you to think about? She contacted the paneland offered to sign an affidavit that you had perjured yourself. Fergus, did you ever think about checking into ava’s past before you decided to take her on as an unimpeachable witness? The woman is quite literally a murderer. Doesn’t make her allegations any less true. How about the fact that she had a personal vendetta against me? Well, ava did mention the fact that you essentially destroyed her brother’s life. Strikingly similar to the way you destroyed both my brothers’ lives. You know what I find interesting? Neil never once mentioned you to me. I mean, that’s weird. We were very close. I mean, that’s not normal that he didn’t tell me that he had a brother. So, fergus, why do you think that is?

That’s the hardest part my brothers and I… had issues. Emotions were running high after my father’s death, and we argued over his estate. Angry words were exchanged. Feelings were hurt. I didn’t speak to either of them for a decade. So much for brotherly love. I deeply regret that we weren’t able to resolve our differences before they passed. But how was I to know that, within the span of two years, they’d both be gone? And all because of you. At lea st I was able to consolemyself with the knowledge that you’ll never be allowed to practice law again. And I intend to do everything in my power to make sure you never are.

Yet another reason that you’d be able to take somalie going after me isn’t going to make up for abandoning your brothers, alienating them, or the decades of time that you wasted that you’re not going to get back. You know, I was actually hoping that you’d be able to take some responsibility for your actions, but clearly that’s not the case. Yet another reason you’re probably not fit to practice law. I’m just upholding the ethics and standards of my profession. Despite what you think, it’s not personal. You know, if you were under oath right now, you would have just committed perjury. Actually, you’re the perjurer, and I’m the one with the law license. Enjoy your salad. When I first heard about my dad’s als diagnosis, I did a lot of research. I know that it’s always fatal. Intellectually, I knew that it would eventually take my dad’s life, but… my dad’s so strong. I mean, he was superman to me. But now that he’s gone, I realize that there was a tiny part of me that actually thought he’d beat it. Beat a fatal disease. How insane is that? No, it’s not. It makes sense.

[ Sighs ] I just wasn’t prepared for how much this would hurt. I’ve called him — or, I’ve tried to call him like four times today. I just can’t believe I’m never gonna talk to him again. I just wish there was something I could do to make this even a tiny bit easier for you. Just you being here. That makes all the difference. And I think my dad knew that. What do you mean? Your grandmo ther made me realizehow much it meant to my dad to see us getting ready to spend our lives together. And… I think that he felt like it was okay to go after the wedding. He knew I wouldn’t be alone. He knew I’d have you. Always. Sam thinks it’s the only way that jason can retake control of his life. By you hacking into the fbi? Ah, I know how it sounds. In light of our — you know, our renewed closeness and — and — and our daughter, I just — I thought you should know what was going on. But you haven’t told sam yet whether you’re going to do it or not. Well, at the wedding I-I said that I’d do it, but just now I was telling her I was having second thoughts, and she had some very persuasive and heart-tugging arguments. So your entrance was incredibly well-timed, because it now gives me some breathing room to — to think it over. Okay. First, I think it is insane what the fbi is doing to jason. And, of course, I want you to help him get out from underneath their thumb. And I really do understand where sam is coming from as far as danny is concerned. She’s just trying to protect her son. But, spinelli, isn’t hacking the fbi a felony? A federal crime of the most punishable nature. Mm. They could lock me up and throw away the key if I get caught. Yeah, yeah, that’s what I thought. So you doing this could put you at risk, and in turn, your family. That’s — that’s why, if you don’t want me to do it, I’m — I’m — I’m happy to turn sam down. So I had ahold of sonny, and I told dex to — to go, and sonny was just yelling threats. And then we heard some plates drop, and we turned and we saw kristina. And kristina was in shock. She was staring at sonny, and then — and then she took off. And I told dex to go again, because I still had sonny. And it wasn’t — you know, he was still not rational, but he was no longer completely out of control, and I let him go. And then he went after kristina, and I called carly. To talk sonny down. She’d be the only one who could get through to him. Carly to the rescue again. What do you mean? What does that mean? Who else did carly rescue? I don’t care. I don’t care what information I gave you in pentonville. I don’t care about the crimes that anna suspects you of. I don’t care that you stabbed yourself because I know you’re going to be fine. The only thing I care about is that my friend, my best friend, jason, that he stays safe. Never met the man. But he must be a great guy if he can inspire you to be this loyal to him. He deserves peace now that he’s home. Ah, yes. Peace. I remember what that’s like. It’s been a while, though. I’m just asking. Whatever is going on, keep jason out of it.

[ Monitor beeping ] Given the respect I have for your intelligence, I won’t go through the motions of assuring you that I’ll never harm your friend when I’d probably kill him if I had to. But cheer up. I mean, what are the odds I’ll even run into your mr. Morgan? After this little vacation, I’ll be whisked back to pentonville and locked away in a cell again. Glad to hear it. I should go. Get some rest. Maybe I’ll come back and see you before you head back to prison. You shouldn’T. You should stay far away from me.

If I wasn’t a part of this equation, would you do this? Despite a plethora of misgivings, I would. Okay, I think you should help them. -Really? -Yeah. Yeah, you’re the only person with the skill set who could actually pull this off. I just — I have one requirement. Anything, maximista. Don’t get caught. I wasn’t planning on it. I mean it, spinelli. You can’t get caught. You have to promise me you’re going to be careful. And if it seems like the fbi is even a little bit onto you, you abandon ship because no one, especially jason, wants you to sacrifice yourself for him. I’ll be cautious and untraceable. You better be, ’cause the kids and I really need you. -You do? -Yeah. They asked about you like four times today. James even said you would not have made him eat his broccoli. That little scamp. He’s right. He’s right.

[ Both chuckle ] Everybody really misses you living with us. Think maybe you could come over for dinner tomorrow night? Just try and stop me. Brennan was stabbed. Pentonville. He is currently undergoing treatment at G.H. And the stab wound was serious enough he lost a lot of blood. He’s going to be fine. Timing seems a little suspicious, don’t you think? Yeah, the placement of the wound, it makes me believe that the injury was self-inflicted. Get-out-of-jail-free card. Because he knows that, at G.H., He’s going to have a much easier time communicating with whoever it is that’s running pikeman for him. Yeah, so what does any of this have to do with carly? Initially, brennan insisted that he had been stabbed in the shower by another prisoner when his guard was down. But I know this man. His guard is never down. And he could tell that I wasn’t buying his explanation, and he changed his story and said that actually he had stabbed himself in order to see carly again. Is that possible? It’s not impossible. I mean, he does seem to be genuinely taken with her. But we both know that brennan is up to something, and he might be using carly as a cover. People will tell you I’m a bad, bad man that you should avoid at all costs. I don’t listen to people. I make up my own mind. Beautiful and smart. I have never meant anything more than the vows I said to you. Me either. I’m so glad my dad was there to hear them. Me, too.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Did you change your ringtone? Uh, no, I think that’s my dad’s phone. I took it from finn’s place. It’s alexis.

[ Ringing continues ] She must not know yet. My dad mentioned she was going out of town. Well, you should answer it before it goes to voicemail. Alexis, this is chase. Hi. Hi, chase. Can I talk to gregory, please? Yeah, I am — I’m sorry to do this over the phone, but, um… there’s something I got to tell you.

[ Gasps ]

[ Exhales slowly ] I’m sor– I’m so sorry, chase. I’m so sorry. Will you tell me if there’s anything I-I can do and details about the service? Yeah, take care. Take care of yourself.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Well, thank you so much for inviting me out for tea. We’re delighted you joined us, Marie. Well, I guess you noticed how quickly I got here after I got your text. I didn’t realize how much I needed to get away from the mansion. And Constantine? No, no, he and I are doing just fine. Although, you know, there are such things as too much togetherness.

Bop. I hope we never go that way. That’s never gonna happen, love. Oh my goodness. Does this mean? With a little assist from Victoria, I asked your daughter for a hand in marriage and she made me the happiest man on earth by it. I said yes. Oh! So you’re engaged. Oh, that’s wonderful! Ah! Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness!

Hey. Special delivery for Black Patch. Hey, dude. Thanks for coming, man. Well, I was glad to get your call. I was hoping to bring you guys on board with this whole Clyde thing. Hoping someone at the ISA can help decode that mess. Well, we know some pretty sharp code breakers over there. How are things going down at the station?

Well, you know, busy and, uh, with Harris out, we are, uh, we’re understaffed, as usual. And I’ll bet you a lot of those cases are linked to the drugs Clyde’s minions are pushing out on the streets right now. Oh yeah, yeah, the sooner we can crack that code. The sooner we can take him down and his whole operation.

Yeah, for sure, but to be honest, I’m more interested in what was on the outside of that book than what it says on the inside. What do you mean? What I mean is that it could be the key to securing my sister’s freedom and defining leash. Chen’s real killer.

Are you waiting for someone special or you just keep your door open for any old stranger? Only the handsome one. Oh, welcome home. Feels so good. I missed you. I missed you too. You know, I would have been home earlier, but I stuck around for the Memorial Day service at Arlington. That’s a pretty good reason.

Yeah. Was it emotional for you? I know that you’ve got friends who died while serving. Yeah. Yeah, you know, visiting the gravesites of people you lost, it’s always tough. But it always fills me with gratitude. Well, I’m grateful that you are still here. Thank you. I’m grateful for their sacrifices. I mean, they’re really fighting a good fight against the evil in the world, and we should always pay tribute to that.

Especially, Since today is the day, we have Clyde Weston in our sights. Time to rid the world of that evil bastard.

Eric, I don’t understand. How could you be our son? Yes, please explain. I’m still processing myself. Someone just confessed to me. Confessed what? None. None of your action. Dimitri never took your son to the hospital. How could that be? He brought him to the slum. That’s impossible. No, it’s just that Dimitri, he was on the run and he thought that slum could help somehow and He left the baby with her.

And I guess just given the timing What about the timing? We, our private adoption had just fallen through. So she kept your son. She told me and everyone else that he was our, our adopted child.

Oh my God. Now that we know the truth, Jude is your son. He belongs with his mommy

like Sands through the hour class. So are the days of our lives.

So, tell me everything, wedding plans, dates, yeah, we’re still trying to figure that out. We have talked about visiting Scotland for the honeymoon. I’ve always wanted to go, it just seems so romantic. Highlands and Castles, I want to show you all my favorite childhood horns the ones i’m allowed to go back to So, yes, we are we’re still talking about it.

Oh, that sounds wonderful And your ring is just very unique. Isn’t it beautiful? Yeah It’s very you Well, I sure hope so That’s gonna be with me forever and always Just like I know. Just like I know. So

Gil’s fingerprint was found in Lee’s blood on the outside of that book? Yeah, it was a bit smeared, but, uh Definitely a match. I ran it several times. So you’re convinced this guild dude is the one who killed Li Shen? Well, it sure seems like it to me. I mean, how else would he have come in contact with Li’s blood?

Yeah, well, hope you can prove it, Rafe. Can you imagine what your sister’s going through, wrongly accused of murder? Does she know about these prints? No, not yet. I’m not going to say anything until I’m sure that we can get the case reopened. Any progress on that? Yeah, we’re working on it. Well, it’s a damn good thing EJ is out as DA, huh?

Yeah. Especially given EJ’s feelings about Gabby. I mean, not that Melinda Trask is any fan of my family, but I know that she definitely cared about Lee, and I’m hoping she’s going to be motivated to find the truth about his killing. I hope so too, buddy. For your sake, and for Gabby’s.

You really did, you really did miss me, huh? Something about a man in a unicorn. I’m out of it. You’re gonna be, hey, you’re gonna make me lose focus. We have to stay on point right now. We have to. I know, I know, I know, I know. Aww. For Toothy! Believe me, I want to make up for lost time as much as you do. But the clock is ticking, okay?

And once Clyde is out of commission, we have all the time in the world to spend together. It’s all the more reason to just get rid of him, and make things right in the world. Yeah. I mean, who, who’d have thought, finding Clyde’s black book. Could help Gabby get off the hook for Lee’s murder. Yeah, well, a lot has happened since you left.

You know, EJ’s out as D. A. Yeah, no, I heard that. Yeah. So, have Stefan and Rafe convinced the new D. A. to reopen the case? Mm mm, not yet. But they are hell bent on, um, proving that Gil’s the one who murdered Lee. Okay, so what’s that theory? That Gil came over to Wendy’s house looking for me and found Lee instead.

They got into it somehow. Gil killed him and then days later when he came looking for me, well We know what happened then. God, you know, it’s just, Wendy is such a good soul. She’s so good, and she makes Tripp so happy, and I mean, how am I going to tell them that Lee might be dead because of me? I mean, her poor family, they just They finally got closure with Gabby’s conviction and now

all those wounds are going to be reopened all over again.

How could that be? The doctor said our baby was dead. Why, why would he say that? I can’t explain what happened at the hospital. Someone must have paid somebody off. Oh my gosh, I can’t, I can’t believe this is happening. Yeah, there’s just a lot to process. The only thing that matters right now is that Your son is in your arms.

I mean, is this really true? Imagine you’re going to want to run your own test to prove that it’s true. I don’t understand why Sloane, she would make up something so awful if it wasn’t. No, that wouldn’t make any sense, would it? All those months ago, when I held Jude for the first time, I always felt like he was my son.

I remember. And then you agreed to a DNA test, just to prove that it wasn’t true. But how? How? So, she said that the results were tampered with. Oh, by her. We’ll make sure all the necessary tests are performed. What’s the most important thing right now is that we all know the truth and our son is back home where he belongs.

Yeah. It’s incredible, E. J. Our son. And you knew all along.

Even when I had to let it all go. I always felt he was my boy. Yeah. I don’t know, I mean, I guess it’s just something to do with parent intuition. Yeah. When it’s your child, you, you just know deep in your soul.

Sweetheart. Yeah, I love you. I do with all my heart. I’ve always loved you.

Well, you both deserve a wonderful wedding. You fought long and hard to get to this place. And you’ve hit a few bumps in the road. Bumps? I don’t remember any bumps, honey. Do you remember any bumps? Nary a one. Nary a one, mom. That being said, and at the risk of dampening the incitement of your good news, I have a favor to ask.

Yeah, sure. What is it? I’d appreciate it if Constantine and I could get married first. That you would wait until our wedding to have your own. Um, before I agree, can I ask why? It’s okay, sweetheart. I know, I know there’s gonna be so many changes. Yes, there are. There’s gonna be so many changes and a new house and a new family and I’m so excited.

Oh my god. But you know what? We’re gonna take such good care of you, okay? Because you mean everything to us. Yeah. And we’re gonna be a family. Like we were always meant to be. Yeah. Yeah. I’m your mommy and this is your very silly daddy. Yeah. Yeah. He likes you. I brought all his essentials from my apartment.

I can bring the rest tomorrow. Oh, thanks. That won’t be necessary. We’ll purchase whatever we need for the nursery, fresh start and all. Here you go. Koi. I’m sorry. I just don’t know what else to say. What do you have to be sorry for, Eric? I mean, you’re a victim here too. This was all Sloan. I just don’t know why I didn’t see it.

Maybe I didn’t want to. That bitch stole my baby. Our baby. She needs to be arrested, EJ. And they need to put her away and never let her see the light of day again. Nicole. No, I want her to experience the same kind of pain and suffering and awful emptiness that we did all those months. There’ll be plenty of time for that.

She needs to be punished. And she will be. Sloane is obviously a depraved woman, but she can’t hurt us anymore. No, she doesn’t just get to confess and then go on her merry way. She is a criminal. She needs to suffer. And so help me, EJ, if I get my hands on her.

What’s going on? Why is Jude here?

What is taking so long? Yes, I know that Lynch was released on bail.

No, there is no other crime. I just want him located, and then I want that reported to me. You are wasting time debating this. Just do it! Thank you. Honey, you’re not gonna believe this, but your brother, he He didn’t die on the day he was born. What?

This isn’t my baby.

Our baby.

Jude is your little brother.


Mom, are you sure that everything is okay with you and Constantine? Has he done something to upset you because if he has no no, no, it’s nothing like that Okay, then why do you want us to wait to get married Because Because I want to be fully present when my beautiful daughter marries my handsome son in law and You wouldn’t be able to be fully present Earlier, because Uh, because I’d be thinking about my own plans.

It’d be all about me and not about the two of you. So, every choice that you made, I would be, uh, comparing it to my own. But you’re having a small civil ceremony, right? Just family and a few friends. Yeah, but it’s still a wedding, and with that comes, uh, complications. Not unlike the activity that’s going on at the mansion right now.

The Hortons are moving out and Alex and Teresa are moving in. Wait. Did you say Alex is moving in? Wow. Rafe seemed really stressed out, huh? Yeah. You know, I remember that feeling when I was on the force. All these open damn cases here and not enough hands on deck. Yeah. Seems like the Salem PD is always understaffed.

Especially when it comes to hanging on to good, clean cops. Yeah, well, and on top of all of that, he’s trying to clear his sister on a murder rap. It’s all the more reason. To hope that the ISA can decipher Clyde Weston’s black book. I’m just glad that Rafe trusted us enough to bring us in on it. So now he’s got two more good guys here that are going to work overtime to put an end to Clyde Weston.

Yeah, yeah.

What’s bugging you, man?

Let me ask you something. What kind of mission do you think this is?

What do you mean by that? I mean how far are we willing to go to get Clyde Weston out of our lives?

So are you asking me if I’m Willing to go outside the bounds of the law. No, man. I’m just thinking, uh, It’d be a good idea if I run point on Weston and you take the lead on Maggie and Constantine. You sure about that? Yeah. I think so. Well, why the shift? Is there something I don’t know or I need to know? I just need to keep a close eye on Ava.

I’m pretty sure she’s on Clyde’s tail. I am telling you, I agree with you. If Clyde gets captured, yeah, he is gonna sell all of us out. You, me, and John. So we need a way for that not to happen. A permanent solution to the Clyde situation.

I just have to make sure Ava doesn’t screw anything up.

Key. Sounds like a plan. But I gotta say this. You must have more patients than a hospital to put up with that crazy ex of yours. So you and your naval buddies weren’t able to decode Clyde’s black book, huh? No, not yet. But I do have the encrypted images for you to send to Clyde. And then? And then, once he opens them, we’ll get notified of his location.

So once you finish packing up, I’m gonna go check in with Rafe, okay? Hey, and when, uh, you need it back, we’re gonna send the files to Clyde, right? Yeah. And once Clyde opens the email, we’ll know exactly where to find that son of a bitch. How,

how can that be? He’s my brother? It’s a miracle, Holly. A true miracle. But how? Well, there’s been a terrible mistake. And Eric’s here to make it right. Your mother and I suffered so much grief when we lost our son, but when I look down at This little guy, it’s turned to pure joy.

I’m so happy for you, Mom. For all of us.

I should go. Eric, I’m confused. I thought you and Sloane adopted Jude, no? So do I. Turns out Sloane was lying to us. To all of us. Judah’s your mom and EJ’s son. Wait. Eric, so that means you’re losing your son?

Yeah. Hey, boss. Harris. Good to see you. How was your memorial day? It was, uh, It was meaningful. Thank you. No, glad to hear it. Uh, thank you again for your service. Thank you for yours. So, uh, did you get a chance to review my request for a couple more days of unpaid leave? Mm hmm. Yeah? Yeah. No can do, man. I’m drowning here.

Do you not see that? I mean, we need you. Okay, I I hear you and I hate to even be putting you in this position but I really need those few days and I’m gonna have to take them one way or another. Hmm. So you’re saying if I don’t give you the leave that you’re gonna quit? Well, I mean, I hope it doesn’t come to that.

I mean, why don’t you just tell me what’s going on? Does this have something to do with your Navy friends? The, the, uh, information they found in Clyde’s black book? No, they haven’t been able to crack the code yet. Okay. Okay. I took it over to John Black, see if maybe ISA can help out. That’s good, the more people working on this the better.

I’ll just, I’ll just coordinate with John. Okay, if you just told me what you’re doing. Look, I can’t, I can’t explain right now. I just, I just need, I just need a few days.

Please. Trust me.

Okay. Fine. Take the time you need. And then hopefully I will have your job waiting for you when you come back.

Thank you.

So, um, you and Ava, But you’re on good terms now? Good is too strong a word, man. No. I think I’m just getting better at accepting her for who she is. Predicting her erratic behavior. Oh, now there’s a skill set you can put on your resume. We have Ava Vitale Wrangler. Yeah, very funny. Well, I think what it is is we’re all on the same page now.

We all want the same thing. Clyde Weston out of our lives. Yeah, well, of course you know that we’re all at risk if he blows a whistle on us when he’s caught. You know I know that. And you also know that if he tells the world that we helped him escape, you and I could be behind bars when Maggie and Constantine’s situation comes to a head.

I didn’t think of that. So we would be leaving Maggie hanging out to dry when she needs us the most.

I can promise you, partner. I won’t let that happen.

You’re letting Alex move into the mansion. I didn’t have a choice. It’s his father’s home. And Victor left him half of the estate. So that technically includes the mansion.

But he’s moving in with Teresa. Hmm. I didn’t know that they were back together. I try not to pry to the nature of their relationship. But they’re, um, you know, they’re close together. On some level. Yeah, on the level that Teresa’s after his money. I don’t know. But they are close. And I feel that Trace really cares about him.

Oh, I’m sure she does. Honey. Mom has a soft spot for Teresa. Yeah, I’ll never understand it. Well, Teresa’s no angel. But I just think she wants to be loved, like we all do. Sure. And when you say loved, you mean Showered with the Kyriakos fortune. You’ve made your point, honey. Alright, I’m just I’m worried for you, Maggie.

If you were stressed having the Hortons there, imagine the chaos of having Hurricane Alex and Tornado Teresa there on a daily basis. Come on. Well, like I said, it’s his father’s home. That means it’s his legacy. And luckily, The house is big enough for all three of us. Three? I mean, don’t forget Bonnie and Justin, and of course your beloved Constance here.

What was it you were saying about too much togetherness? Eric,

I’m so sorry. I’ve been so caught up in my own shock and joy, I didn’t even think about what you were going through. It’s okay. This is not about me. No, but, but it is. I mean, Jude. Jude was your son. Well, you need to focus on your family.

Jude belongs with his mother.

Eric, I’m so sorry. I know how much you love him. Thank you. It means a lot.

I just want you to know that I love you. I’m not gonna fight for any custody or anything like that. Oh, Eric. I wasn’t worried about that. But I’m worried about you, and if there’s anything I can do Don’t be. Don’t be. I just All I want is you to be happy. But Eric Really, I appreciate Yeah, I can get on the thoughts, but there’s nothing you can do.

I need to go. I need to deal with Sloan. Good luck. Cause I know that’s not gonna be easy. Someone’s gonna pay for what you did, I promise. Here I come. I’m so sorry. Me too. More than you know. Let me walk you out. I want to thank you for doing the right thing.

Very quick. Wait.

Don’t you want to hold Jude before you go?

Alright. Hey, how’s the packing going? Hey, I am ready to go as soon as we know where we’re headed. Okay. Then it’s showtime. Do you have the email address that Clyde sent? Yeah, it’s right here. Okay. Here’s this. Yeah. You ready? Yeah. Send away. Now what? Now we just wait. But we gotta be ready

to hit the ground running. Did you tell Wilma that she needed more time off? Not yet. I didn’t really have a chance, you know, and I honestly, I’m a little nervous since he just hired me. I don’t want him to think I don’t care about the job. I get that. Rafe wasn’t happy about giving me more time either. So hopefully we can just get this done and our jobs will still be here when it’s over.

I still can’t believe you’re doing this for me. I mean, and now you’re putting your job at risk too.

I am doing this for you. And I’m doing it for Tripp, and I’m doing it for Wendy, and I’m doing it for me, and every person whose life Clyde has ruined or tried to ruin.

I took an oath to serve and protect. I take that very seriously. Even if it means breaking some rules. So I guess it’s just you and me against Clyde.

Actually, no. Um, there’s somebody else I’d like to loop in.

So Maggie’s all in on trapping Constantine. Oh, yeah. She’s got them all set up in a corner office at Titan there. Gave them full authority over all of Victor’s charitable funds. Wow. Gotta hand it to her. She is one brave woman. I’m pretty shrewd, too. So how’s the setup work? It’s pretty simple. Just move some money around and make it look like Cos Teen has embezzling Titan funds.

Well, let’s just hope we can get him busted before she has to go through with actually marrying him. Yeah, well, that’s the plan. He’s trying to nail down the timing here because that bastard has messed around with her life enough already. It seems like a revolving door at the mansion these days. Ever since, you know, we lost.

Victor, there always seems to be somebody coming in and out. That’s because you’re a generous person, Mom. Maybe a little too generous. Oh, look who’s up! As she wants everyone in the square to know it. I think our little princess needs her diaper changed. Oh, I’ll do it. No, no, no, no. Let Daddy do it. Yes! Glue that mummy in nine and a half smooth on time, yeah?

Thank you. My pleasure.

Well, I might be biased, but she is obviously the most beautiful baby in the world. You’re not biased. She is. You’re right, I’m not at all. Um, actually, I’m glad that it’s just you and me for a minute, because I wanted to talk to you about something, but I didn’t want to say it in front of Xander. Are you

sure it’s okay? Of course. I know how much Jude means to you. And how much you mean to each other.

Oh, I like that. Hey, sweet boy. Hey.

Hey. I’m gonna be grateful. For all the time we shared. And I will always love you.

More than you will know.

Thank you. Yeah. Come by and see him anytime, okay? Yeah, I think it’s best that, uh, You have time to bond with your son and all he is. With your brother. I love you. Take care. Your mommy. EJ.

Well, that will definitely make your wedding special. Not that your wedding wouldn’t be special anyway. Do you really like the idea? Oh, I do. I do. But I, I think you ought to run it by Xander first. I mean, it is his wedding, too. True. All right, I guess I’ll tell him. I hope he approves. Okay. Fingers crossed.

All right.

Alright, I’ll get these pages off to Andrew and some of the other big brains at the ISA. They’re cracking codes is what they do. Good. And we’ll have everything we need to find Weston and wipe him off the map. The man’s a menace. He’s hurt a lot of our friends and family. Yes, he has. Yes. Hey. Be careful. I know you want to take the lead on this western angle here, but it’s important that we finish this out as partners.

Scratch that, man. We’re more than partners. We’re more than friends. You’re You’re my brother, Steve.

I feel the same way about you, partner. And nobody, even Constantine, is ever gonna drive a wedge between you and me. I trust you with my life.

Right back at you brother.

Why isn’t Clyde downloading these messages? I guess he’s a little busy. Did you talk to Roman? Uh, no, he was busy too. So I left him a note, I let him know I needed to leave town on an emergency. Yeah, well I’m sure I’ll understand. Yeah. Is that it? Did he get a signal? Bingo. Clyde is at a public library in a town called Ennis in Montana.

Our book is the next flight out. You know, I have never been to Montana. I hear it is beautiful. Yeah, big sky country. Not sure we’re going to see a lot of it. So are you ready to put this mess behind you once and for all? Let’s do it. There’s one pit stop on the way.

All the same, Mom, he looks really happy to be in your arms. Yeah, he does, doesn’t he? Hey, honey, um, listen, I know things have been rough between us lately. No, you don’t have to do this right now. I just want to thank you for the text you sent me. It really meant a lot. I’m sorry. I hope you know I didn’t mean any of those horrible things I said.

Of course not, sweetheart. I love you. I love you. And I love you. Look at him. Look at him. Oh, look at your daddy. Oh, this is like a new beginning, huh? For all of us. It is. Yeah. For all four of us. Oh, he’s a mover and a shaker. He’s a mover and a shaker. Hey, man. Hey. Thank you for meeting me. Yeah, man. Glad you called.

Listen, I just I’m so sorry about all this. Everything that Sloan’s putting you through. Yeah. Me too. You think she’s home? She should be. Sloane! Is this the place like this

when you left? No. Where do you

think she’s gone? What’s this?

It’s a necklace that I gave her for Mother’s Day with Jude’s birthstone. Oh, boy. Damn it, she took off. Oh my god, I

knew it. I knew it. Yes, I did. I knew it. Yes. I can’t believe you, you’re here, you’re here, oh my god, yes I know, I know, I know, look at us, look at us.


EJ’s personal effects, I take it Surprised you left them in his office my office And uh, I was going to send them via messenger, but since you’re here you can bring them to your brother Save me on the delivery fee Sure. Can I help you with something? I actually came by to offer my congratulations. Can’t say that felt entirely genuine.

Why wouldn’t it be? I helped push EJ out of office and I’m the big reason why you’re back in this job, Melinda. You’re also a demure, so I would be a fool to trust you. Look, I lost this job once before, and I have no intention of letting it go again. And if you even think about doing to me what you did to your brother, you will find yourself a very dangerous enemy.

Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were working. It’s all right. Hello, stranger. Hello, Maggie.

Poppy: Hi, it’s nice to meet you.

Katie: Likewise.

Bill: You must know her daughter, luna. She’s interning at…

Katie: Oh, yeah, of course! Of course, I love luna, she’s lovely.

Poppy: Thank you.

Katie: Speaking of lovely children, have you given any thought to going and seeing will for parents’ weekend? We gotta rsvp.

Bill: Oh, oh, oh. You know will. Talking with him on the phone only goes so far, but, yeah, yeah, I’m in.

Katie: Okay, good.

Poppy: Oh, you’re that katie!

Katie: Yeah, that katie.

Bill: That katie.

Steffy: Hmm.

Liam: Nothing?

Steffy: No, he still hasn’t texted me back.

Liam: I mean, if he’s driving, that makes sense, right? Like, he’s gotta be on the road by now.

Steffy: Or il giardino’s maybe a little slow. Deacon’s not there to call the shots, so.

Liam: That is true. I mean, that place descends into utter chaos every time deacon takes a day off to marry the local psychopath.

[ Steffy sighs ]

Steffy: Maybe I shouldn’t have sent finn to il giardino.

Tom: Um, I just– you need to sign right here, uh, right next to hope.

[ Finn sighs ]

Finn: You– you really need two?

Tom: Well, two’s better than one. I mean, you did witness the wedding, didn’t you?

[ Finn sighs ]

Finn: Yeah. Yeah, I did.

Tom: Well, then here you go. Right there. Great. I’ll get this right over to the county recorder’s office.

Deacon: Hey, tom. Hey. Listen, I just wanna tell you, sheila and I, we will be forever grateful to you. Thank you.

Sheila: Yeah, we couldn’t have done this without you.

Tom: Oh, no, please. I forgot how much I enjoyed doing these. I mean, it has been a long time. You know, I clean up pretty good.

Deacon: Damn straight you do! Look at this suit. I picked it out. What do you think?

Sheila: I’ll tell you what, it makes your eyes pop.

Deacon: I’m talking about more the ceremony, though. I mean, we wouldn’t have been able to do our vows at all if it wasn’t for you.

Hope: Aww. Our parents grow up so fast, don’t they?

[ Finn chuckles ]

Finn: Yeah.

Hope: I still can’t believe this just happened. I mean, I really just stood up for sheila carter as her maid of honor. [ Laughs ] But the, uh, reception has been lovely.

Finn: Yeah. No, it– it has.

Hope: Uh…

[ Both chuckle awkwardly ] Well, I– I could see that it meant a lot to her, you being here.

Finn: Yeah. I mean, I just was completely blindsided. I thought that– I thought they were getting married at the beach. I mean, I came here to pick up some pizzas.

Hope: Oh, pizza with a side of “I do.”

Finn: Yeah, well, it’s something that’s gonna take some explaining.

Hope: To steffy?

Finn: Yeah. She’s not gonna be thrilled about this. Not thrilled at all.

Hope: Toe?

Finn: Mmm.

When dry eye symptoms

Bill: So, did will tell you that his streak of a’s continued on his latest exam?

Katie: No! He’s not an open book with me the way he is with you. I have to, like, pry out every little, tiny tidbit.

Bill: No, you see, that’s what happens when you’re the favorite parent.

Katie: Oh, yeah, right. Sure. [ Chuckles ] Sorry. You don’t need to listen to us debating parental rankings.

Poppy: Oh, no, I don’t mind. It’s a funny concept to me, actually. I raised luna on my own, so I got to be the favorite parent by default.

Katie: Well, you did a wonderful job. She’s super smart. She helped me tremendously with a project that we just finished today, actually.

Poppy: Thank you. That makes me really happy to hear.

Katie: And you know what’s funny? She never once mentioned that her mom was friends with you.

[ Chuckles ]

Liam: You know, if you hadn’t given finn that ultimatum, he could very well be at sheila’s wedding right now.

Steffy: No, I don’t think he would have gone. Okay, maybe he was entertaining the idea, and you’re right. I’m glad that I spoke to him.

Liam: Do me a favor, if nothing else, for kelly’s sake: Look out for that husband of yours. Make sure he doesn’t get conned again.

Steffy: No, I– I will. I’ll be there for finn. No matter what sheila throws at him.

Sheila: Now, come on. You sure I can’t, like, toss you the garter on the way out?

Tom: Oh, no, no, no. Please, please. Been there, done that when it comes to marriage.

[ Sheila laughs ] But wait, don’t let my bad luck reflect on you guys at all. I’m sure you will ride off in eternal bliss. Thank you for including me in your ceremony.

Sheila: No, thank you for officiating it and… doing all that you did. I mean, you helped save my life, and– and– will I see you again?

Tom: Well, I don’t know.

Sheila: I hope so.

Deacon: Hey, what do you say we commemorate this moment? Come on, guys, get in here. Come on.

Tom: What? Oh!

Deacon: Smile! Yeah! Here we go. Look at that. That is a good-looking group. Deacon: All right, okay, put tom in the middle. Yeah!

Sheila: I like that. Here we go.

[ All laughing ]

Tom: Let me. Let me.

Deacon: You wanna take some? All right, okay. All right, I’m gonna get–

Tom: Let me be the wedding photographer.

Sheila: Okay.

Tom: That’s good. You guys are a beautiful couple. Wait, let’s get some family shots. To the beautiful, gorgeous family. Come on, come on.

Finn: You know, let’S…

Tom: Oh, come on, finn. Will you say no to the wedding photographer?

Deacon: All right.

Tom: Now, everybody get close. Come on, you guys are a family now. Come on. Okay, here we go. Here we go. Oh, that’s good.

Sheila: You’re getting us all in?

Tom: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Hold on. There you go!

Deacon: All right.

Tom: God, you guys are beautiful.

Deacon: Thanks, tom. Give me this. Hey, come here. Let me talk to you for a second.

Tom: Sure.

Deacon: Let me ask you something. Um, so, uh, where– where are you going after this?

Tom: Well, I’ve got a motel room for the next couple nights, but, you know, after that, it’s– it’s kinda iffy.

Deacon: I was thinking that maybe you could come back during business hours. Look, tom, I know that you’ve hit some hard times, like a lot of good people, and I’d like to talk to you about working here.

Tom: Really?

Deacon: Yeah. I mean, the pay’s good, and as an added bonus, you get all the free food you want, even on your days off.

Tom: You know, I don’t know much about the restaurant business.

Deacon: Hey, that’s okay. I’ll train you myself. Just think about it, okay? And you come back real soon. Hey. Take these.

Tom: Are you kidding?

Deacon: No!

Tom: Thank you, deacon.

Deacon: You’re welcome.

Tom: I appreciate it.

Deacon: Thank you.

Tom: Thank you. Can I have one of–

Deacon: You take whatever you want. Please, take as many of the toes as you’d like.

Tom: These are really good.

Deacon: Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] Hey, I just, uh– I just wanna thank you both for being here. I mean, it really– it means a lot to both of us that you were here to share this. Hope, it was just– it was powerful for me to have you here. And, finn, I know you didn’t intend to be here, but damn, it just meant the world to your mother.

Finn: No, I– I– it was a sweet ceremony, and, you know, I really do wish you guys the best.

Deacon: Thank you.

Finn: But I– I really do need to get going home and get those pizzas, yeah. Okay? All right.

Did you know…

[ Sheila laughs ]

Sheila: Hey! One more hug before you go.

[ Both chuckle ] Oh, and thank you. Thank you again. I mean, it just– it meant the world to me having you here today.

Finn: Hey.

Waitress: The boss said it’s on the house.

Finn: Oh, hey, thanks.

Deacon: It’s not gonna be an everyday thing just ’cause we’re family now, all right? Wife, let’s go.

Finn: Well, I appreciate it.

Sheila: Hey, thank you again.

[ Hope clears throat ]

Finn: Yeah.

Hope: That was, uh, something. Uh, good luck on your journey home. I– I know you’re a little nervous about how steffy’s gonna react to this, but, uh, you had no idea that this was going to be going on here, so I hope that she will be understanding. And besides… your parents are happy, and I think that should count for something.

Finn: I don’t think steffy’s gonna see it that way.

Hope: Who knows? Maybe she will.

Finn: She’s gonna–

Hope: No, I– I totally get it. You are in a very difficult position.

Finn: Yeah.

Hope: You want to respect your wife’s wishes, but at the same time…

[ Sighs ] I don’t know if she should be the one dictating what your relationship looks like to your birth mother. I mean, maybe… that should be up to you.

Finn: Hmm. Well, thanks for understanding that.

Hope: Yeah, well. Here for you.

Finn: Well, right back at you. Especially in the headache department. Okay, you– don’t hesitate to call me if they continue, all right?

Hope: All right. I– I will do so.

Finn: Okay.

Hope: Good luck.

Katie: So, how did this, um, budding friendship come about? Do you have business with spencer?

Poppy: “Budding” doesn’t exactly describe it. Uh, bill and I go way back. We, um– we have a lot of history.

Bill: I first met poppy some 20 years ago, and we just recently reconnected.

Poppy: And I’m very glad that we did.

Katie: Hmm.

Steffy: Wait, wait, wait. All this talk about you being hungry, and now you’re gonna leave before the pizza even gets here?

Liam: Trust me, I’m not happy about it, but–

[ Door opens ]

Steffy: Oh! Hey!

Finn: Hey.

Liam: Oh, my god. Finally. Sorry. Forgive me. I’m taking one for the road. Thank you. Mmm. And it’s cold. That’s great.

Finn: Hey, are the, um– are the girls in kelly’s room?

Steffy: Uh, no, they’re– they’re next door at nellie’S. They’re going for a swim. And haynes is sleeping. Wait, did you not get my texts?

Finn: Oh, I don’t know. I was– I was on silent.

Steffy: Uh, why did you have it on silent?

Finn: Uh, liam, you were– you were headed out, right?

Liam: Yep, sure was. Uh, I’ll come back for kelly.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, you got it.

[ Door opens, closes ] What’s going on?

[ Finn sighs ]

Finn: Okay, um… okay, you’re– you’re never gonna believe this. I–

Steffy: What?

Finn: I– I go to the pickup window at il giardino, and it’s– it’s closed. So I go into the restaurant to get the pizzas, and, um… there they are. And I never thought that they would be there.

Steffy: Who?

Finn: Sheila and deacon. Always dry scoop before you run.

Katie: So, you’ve known each other for years?

Poppy: We have. You could even say that, um… I had him first.

Katie: Hmm.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Deacon & sheila laughing ]

Deacon: Hey, you know I had to do it! I had to do it.

Sheila: Oh, my gosh. Are there any other newlywed traditions you’re going to do?

Deacon: Oh, I got a couple traditions in mind.

Sheila: Oh.

Deacon: Listen, I know this isn’t some fancy resort, but I promise I’m gonna make our honeymoon night a night that you’re never gonna forget.

Sheila: Ooh.

Deacon: But first things first…

Sheila: Mmm?

Deacon: One tradition. A new one.

Sheila: What’s that?

Deacon: I promised I’d do– well, hollis convinced me to start an account for il giardino, you know, to post things like, um, I don’t know, recipes and specials and wine pairings and, you know, things like when the boss marries the star waitress, things like that, so.

Sheila: Well, let’s hope it gets more likes than the daily soup, right? Okay, what we got?

Deacon: That’s not bad.

Sheila: That’s not too bad.

Deacon: What do you think? Is that the one?

Sheila: Look at your smile. And look at finn, too. That’s definitely the one.

Deacon: Okay.

[ Phone chimes ]

Sheila: I still can’t believe that he came. To our wedding. Wow. Our wedding.

Deacon: Yeah.

Sheila: I love you so much.

Deacon: I love you too, baby. Come here.

[ Knocking on door ]

Liam: Hey. Thought I’d find you in here.

Hope: Hey.

Liam: Well, you look beautiful.

Hope: Thank you.

Liam: Got a night out on the town planned, or, uh… a wedding?

Hope: Ha.

[ Clicks tongue ] Yeah, I might’ve just come from one of those.

Liam: Oh, please tell me there was some other random one happening tonight, please!

Hope: Liam, he’s my dad, and it was his wedding day.

Liam: Oh, man! I mean, just ’cause you’re his kid doesn’t mean you have to support everything he chooses. Hell, even finn found a way to say no.

Hope: So–

Liam: What? What?

Hope: I– I wasn’t the only one there at the wedding. I mean, finn was there, too.

Liam: Finn was at the wedding? Today?

Finn: We knew the wedding was today. We just– we thought it was at the beach.

Steffy: Yeah, but why were deacon and sheila there? We placed an order at il giardino. They probably knew that you were coming, so they ambushed you. That’s exactly what happened.

Finn: No, no. They didn’t ambush me, okay? They were just as surprised to see me as I was to see them. And hope was there, too. Apparently she decided to be sheila’s maid of honor. And tom, the, um– remember the homeless man I told you about, the one that helped lead us to sheila? Believe it or not, he was there and… performing the ceremony.

Steffy: So you actually walked in, into the ceremony?

Finn: Yeah. Look, I– steffy, I just–

[ Phone chiming ]

Steffy: Okay, wait. Just wait for one second. I wanna make sure that the kids are– the kids are okay. Just… oh, my god. Oh… my god. What am I looking at? It’s a picture of, uh– a wedding photo of deacon, sheila and you? You’re standing right next to her!

Finn: I mean, I realize that looks like–

Steffy: You were there! That’s why you– that’s why you didn’t call me. That’s why your phone was on silent, because you were at sheila’s wedding! Answer me, finn.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Adam: Well, it’s got to be a good sign that they’re gonna let us see connor.

Chelsea: After that call we had with him earlier, I wasn’t gonna take no for an answer.

Adam: Well, the doctor did back up connor’s explanation. It was the timing of the call. Thirteens.

Chelsea: Which is our fault, again.

Adam: They’re working on this. Yeah, it’s a small thing, but it’s part of a bigger problem. And we’re just gonna have to roll with it.

Chelsea: I know. I just hate this. It doesn’t seem like we’re making things easier for him. It seems we’re making things harder.

Adam: Well, let’s just hang on to the fact that we’re gonna get to see him in person. You know, think about that hug you’re gonna be able to give him.

Chelsea: The biggest.

Nick: Hey, I’m glad I ran into you. Did you have that call with connor? How’d it go?

Adam: Oh, we did. It was– it was really great to see his face.

Chelsea: Yeah. The doctors say he’s progressing.

Nick: Okay, um, I know you both better than that. How’s he really doing?

[ Door closes ]

Jack: Hey, it’s such a beautiful day outside. Traci and I decided to go for a stroll. Maybe you and alan could…

Traci: Where is alan?

Ashley: I asked him to leave.

Traci: Why?

Ashley: Because I can only handle so much at one time. I mean, my head is absolutely spinning.

Traci: Okay, well, we can reach out to him later. I’m sure he understands.

Ashley: I need more than a few minutes. I don’t know what I need.

Jack: Okay, well, look, just take all the time you need. Maybe we can help you think things through.

Ashley: Oh, my god. It’s a lot to process. I mean, did he… did alan tell you what his opinion is of what’s going on?

Jack: You mean about what you’re dealing with?

Ashley: You can say it. He thinks it’s, uh, dissociative identity disorder. Multiple personalities.

Jack: Well, that’s just a theory right now. He wants to do a full medical workup.

Ashley: I know, but jack, have I really had entire conversations that I simply don’t remember, where I was a completely different person?

Traci: That’s kind of difficult for us to answer, ashley. You know, it’s been confusing for us, too.

Ashley: Okay, so you actually sent for alan to come here for me. And wasn’t I supposed to see a therapist that sharon…

Jack: Yes, and you agreed to both.

Traci: But at the last minute, you seemed to change your mind.

Ashley: Do you really think I’m this unbalanced? I mean, really, do you really think I need to commit myself?

Victor: What are you doing here?

Jordan: Saving me from you. You monster.

Victor: Over, my dead body.

Jordan: Oh-ho-ho-ho. Don’t you listen to him, okay? You’re good, you’re decent, you’re good and–

Victor: Shut up. Stop talking.

Jordan: No, no, no. You don’t listen to him, okay? Because he has a worse plan for me, and if so, my blood will be on your hands. Anthony: This making you uncomfortable?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Victor: What are you doing here?

Michael: As your lawyer and friend, I couldn’t stand by and let this happen, victor.

Victor: As my lawyer and friend, you went behind my back.

Cole: Okay, don’t blame michael. Right this is all on me, victor. You know I was suspicious. I just put the pieces of the puzzle together. Then I just debated on what the hell to do.

Victor: Who have you told?

Cole: I’ve not told anyone but michael. And I didn’t say a word to victoria, I didn’t wanna implicate her.

Michael: He called me for advice.

Cole: He’s been telling me not to do anything behind your back.

Michael: That’s not true. Cole is trying to protect me. I’m as much a part of what was about to happen as he is.

Victor: Is that why you tried to lure me and nikki away for lunch? Huh?

Jordan: They’re my angels of mercy. They’re gonna get me the hell out of here.

Victor: Shut up! Two of you follow me upstairs.

Traci: Having yourself committed is not at all how we would describe this. If you’re asking, do we think you need to get help? I know my answer is yes. You trusted me enough to confide in me about your blackouts is reason enough to get some kind of treatment.

Jack: We’ve all seen personality shifts big enough we can’t ignore them. And frankly, they’re dangerous.

Traci: Yeah. I think both of us would be so much less terrified about your safety if you were supervised around the clock with a team of doctors who can help you–

Ashley: I’m not going there. I’m telling you right now, I’m not going to fairview.

Jack: No, no, no, no, no, we agree. That would do more harm than good.

Traci: Ashley, there are wonderful facilities. We’ll find you the very best care.

Ashley: I don’t know.

Jack: Look, I know you feel you need time to think about this. I think waiting would be a mistake.

Ashley: Alan said the same thing. He offered to help me.

Traci: How?

Ashley: He thinks that i suffered some kind of a trauma after the argument I had with tucker in paris. And he said that I need to figure out what that is before I can get treatment. Did he tell you that too?

Traci: He did.

Jack: So what do you think about that?

Ashley: I’m so sorry.

Traci: Sorry about what?

Ashley: I’ve put you both through such hell, haven’t I? If you think I should go, I’ll go.

Chelsea: To be honest, the call was hard. Connor got very upset because we called a couple of minutes early. It set him off.

Adam: Well, it set his ocd off.

Chelsea: Right, right, it’s the ocd, it’s not him. At least that’s what the doctors keep telling us. But it’s hard, ’cause it certainly feels like connor in those moments. Just feels like we’re failing him over and over.

Nick: Yeah, I hate hearing that. It’s gotta be so rough not being able to see him in person.

Chelsea: Yeah, that’s why it makes it all the more upsetting when a call like that falls apart.

Adam: But we knew that there was gonna be ups and downs going into this, you know, two steps forward, one step back.

Nick: Um, did they give you any idea when you might be able to visit with him?

Chelsea: We’re actually just talking about that. They’re ready for us to come for an in-person family therapy session. It’ll be the first time we see him since he’s gotten there.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Nick: Well, that sounds promising.

Adam: Yeah, I was gonna clear the trip with you and dad first.

Nick: Adam, stop, you don’t have to do that, all right? Of course, you need to go, and dad will insist that you go as well. Remember, it’s family before business, always.

Victor: This is my plan. Neither of you have the right to interfere, is that clear?

Michael: I beg to differ. We can’t unsee what you’re doing.

Cole: We’d be accomplices to a crime.

Victor: What crime? What crime?

Michael: I can name a few. Kidnapping, illegal imprisonment, intent to cause harm, all felonies, with hefty sentences.

Victor: Enough! This is my plan. She’s done enormous damage to my family. That’s why I want that woman to rot in hell. Now, I would like you to leave the premises, not speak of this again, ever.

Cole: Sorry, victor. Not gonna happen.

Michael: We’re not going anywhere.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Victor: Do I need to remind either of you of the damage that woman has done to my family? She almost killed the love of my life, for heaven’s sake.

Michael: We’re well aware of that, and the court will be too.

Cole: Vic, she’s gonna spend the rest of her life in prison.

Victor: I can’t take that risk. What if she escapes again? Visits even greater harm on our family.

Michael: Victor, what’s your plan? To keep her locked up forever? To let her starve to death?

Victor: So what? She deserves it, after what she has done to us. Almost killed nikki. Almost killed your daughter.

Cole: I’m not gonna lie to you.

Victor: What?

Cole: I thought about leaving her down there.

Victor: Yes. Just forgetting that I ever even seen her in that cage that you set her up in. But I can’t do it, victor. I’m not gonna become her. I’m not gonna stoop down to her level because it’s wrong. And somebody else is gonna figure this out, by the way. Your staff is gonna be on to this, and so is nikki and victoria.

Victor: I have an alarm set, which went off because you went down there.

Michael: Victor, listen to your logic here.

Victor: Stop that nonsense! There is no logic or argument for you to make. That woman has to rot in that dungeon.

Michael: Victor, you do–

Victor: Wait a minute. What about the prison inmates? What about all the prison guards? People who died as a consequence to when she set fire to that damn prison. No one does that kind of damage to my family. No one! Let her rot in hell! She’s exactly in the place where she belongs.

[ Jordan sobbing ]

Jordan: I was so close. I was so close. I was so close. I was so close. So close to my– to my freedom. My freedom. And away from this damn slow death! Oh, it’s all– it’s all slipping away it’s all slipping away again.

[ Jordan crying ]

Tucker: Hi, audra. Um, so, it would appear you decided to go on our paris trip after all. I just wanted to give you a heads up that it might’ve been a waste of a plane ticket unless you have some shopping to do. Uh, that– that meeting you scheduled without my knowledge, I canceled that. And, if you schedule another, I’m gonna cancel that too.

[ Tucker sighing ]

Traci: Well, ashley, I know it must be really terrifying to think about going back to paris. The place where probably all of this started.

Jack: We trust alan. And if you’re in his company, well, he can get you to the source of all of this.

Ashley: Stop listening to them. Listen to me. Yeah, honey. Those two don’t know what they’re talking about. Where am I? What is this place? Who are you? Oh, now, honey, I know it’s a lot to take in. You need to think of it like this. We don’t have time for some long, boring diagnosis. I wasn’t gonna get all clinical. And as I was saying, there are so many parts to the human mind. And you are a flower and we are your petals. Or perhaps you are the onion and we are the many layers. And we don’t have time for poetry and stupid metaphors either. You are the voices that have been tormenting me for months. Well, now, she is actually more of the tormentor. I’m the fun one. If only you could remember when we were at that piano bar. Now, that was a good time. That was when you almost blew our cover for the umpteenth time. At least I didn’t try to murder anyone. I don’t remember any of this. But you’re the ones that caused my blackouts. Nice job, you stupid idiot. You’re freaking her out. Now, sweetie pie, just take it easy, okay? We are here to help you, aren’t we? Absolutely. You are our number one priority, which is why you can’t be in control right now. And you absolutely cannot go to paris with alan. When anyone in this house wears white,

Adam: So we will let connor’s doctors know that we’re ready to try again for an in-person visit.

Nick: I know connor really appreciates that you’re there for him. It may not always seem like that, but I promise you on some level, he knows you’re both fighting for him.

Adam: Well, thank you for saying that.

Nick: And if there’s anything I can do for connor, do not hesitate to ask.

Adam: I wish there were, but we’re gonna have to put our faith in the doctors right now. Are you okay? ‘Cause I should go find sally and tell her the plan?

Chelsea: Go, I have to check in on mark anyway.

Adam: Okay. Thank you.

Nick: Yeah.

Nick: Well, you don’t have to try and hold it together for me. How are you really doing?

Chelsea: Not great.

Michael: Victor, I know you. I know the way your mind works, what drives you and what keeps you up at night. And I know as furious and as repulsed as you are by jordan, you are not a killer. It will haunt you if you let that woman die out there.

Victor: I will be the judge of what haunts me.

Michael: It doesn’t work that way. We don’t get to choose in advance. We both know that more than anyone else.

Cole: You put her through hell for weeks, victor. Can’t that be enough?

Michael: She’s a shadow of her former self from what I could see. And don’t you wanna be free of the burden of having to keep her prisoner down there? Think of the price you’d have to pay if she was discovered. You’d have to spend the rest of your life in prison.

Victor: The only way that will happen is if one of you goes to the authorities. Is that what you’re planning to do?

Cole: No, no, of course, of course not.

Michael: No, we’re trying to help you, to protect you.

Cole: We’re trying to protect you the way that you’ve always protected everyone else.

Victor: What’s your plan?

Michael: Jordan is a prison escapee, an arsonist. The system will be prepared to contain her at all costs. She’s tipped her hand. They know all her tricks, all her scams.

Cole: The woman I saw in that cage isn’t capable of any new scams.

Michael: Agreed, agreed, but if something were to change, we’re talking about a facility with the tightest security possible. The kind of place that no one gets out of, ever.

Victor: What if that woman squeals? She goes to the authorities and tells them I kept her in a damn dungeon. What then?

Michael: She is a psychopath and she can claim what she wants.

>>Cole: Who’s gonna believe her, right? Let her rant and rave.

Michael: They think she’s just trying to get a lenient sentence, but it won’t change the judge’s mind about what she’s done.

Michael: There’s one more thing we need to do.

Victor: What?

Michael: Just in case. Destroy the dungeon and the cell. Bury all evidence.

Ashley: Jack and traci are right. Something is so very, very wrong with me. Oh now, honey, please don’t fret. This is what we do. We are here to protect you. Yes, because clearly this is way too much for you. What you need to do is just sit back and take a nice long nap. And let me take charge. Well, actually, I should take charge. I have a much better chance of getting us out of this situation, especially if alan is involved, because you see, he has a thing for me. The point is you need to stop fighting me and let me take it from here, okay? How am I fighting you? I had everything under control until that stupid tucker woke you up from your nice, deep sleep. Are you talking about the lounge earlier? Why– why was I there? Why were you there? Well, I was trying to take care of you like I’m trying to take care of you now. But you keep resisting me. Now stop it and let me take over. Okay, now you just cool your jets, miss meany. Sweetheart, she’s telling you the truth, though. You don’t wanna go to paris. It won’t be good what you find there. You could make things a lot worse. What am I gonna find in paris? What do you mean?

Traci: Oh my god, jack, what’s happening to her? Ashley, ashley, can you hear me? Ashley? Are you all right?

Jack: What happened just now?

Ashley: I went to this incredibly strange place.

Jack: What place?

Ashley: I’m falling apart. I’m breaking apart.

Traci: No, no, it’s okay, it’s okay. We’re here, you’re with us, you’re safe.

Ashley: I’m telling you right now, alan’s right. I have to go to paris. The answers are there. I know it. Before my doctor and I chose breztri

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Chelsea: I thought I’d be tougher. I thought I’d be more resilient, you know, considering everything I’ve been through, all of my own mental health issues, all the therapy. When this all started, I thought that I was gonna be a rock for connor because I’ve been there. I know what he’s going through, but truthfully, nick, I am running on fumes here.

Nick: Has it ever occurred to you that this is so hard because you know what it’s like? You know, you’re feeling your feelings and connor’S. Chelsea, you gotta let yourself off the hook for that. Don’t try and take that on. This may not be easy to accept, but you gotta let connor work through his own feelings. That’s what’s gonna get him stronger.

Chelsea: Yeah. But to watch my kids suffer and do nothing.

Nick: It’s almost impossible, I know.

Chelsea: Yeah. Oh, anyway, sorry. Thank you for letting me, uh, crumble a little bit. It’s been hard ’cause billy’s been away.

Nick: Where’s billy?

Chelsea: Oh, he’s just– he’s away on business meeting some chancellor-winters executives.

Nick: Don’t like hearing that. This is a lot to take on by yourself.

Chelsea: Well, you know what? I actually haven’t been by myself. Believe it or not, adam’s been pretty great.

Nick: Yeah, I was surprised to hear him talk about the process. Like it’s two steps forward, one step back.

Chelsea: I know, right? Don’t get me wrong. In the beginning, he was very adam. He, uh, fought the diagnosis. He threatened to yank connor out of the school, then threatened to yank connor out of the treatment program. Didn’t trust any of the doctors. But then, you know, he, um, he did a bunch of his own research and he came around. Believe it or not, he’s been the more stable parent.

Nick: I didn’t think I’d see the day anyone called adam the stable one.

Sally: How’d it go with your call?

Adam: Not great. But the upside is, the doctors want chelsea and I to come for an in-person family therapy session. So, we are gonna leave first thing in the morning.

Sally: How long will you be gone?

Adam: They suggested a week or two. You know, give or take.

Sally: Well, that sounds like a very important step. I really wanna get connor a present. Just something that shows him that I’m thinking about him. Maybe that card game that we always play. And you should bring him that soccer jersey that he loves. I saw that he left it at your place. I really think it would bring him a lot of comfort.

Adam: You know, you’ve been really great through all this. And you’ve been so patient.

Sally: Of course. You know I love connor.

Adam: And I love you. So, I need you to stop putting on a brave face ’cause I can tell something’s wrong. Something’s bugging you. And before you say anything about being a burden, will you just let me in?

Jack: You sure you’re feeling strong enough for a trip like this, chasing down what happened?

Ashley: I’m gonna do whatever I have to do to make these voices get out of my head. And if alan says I need to go to paris, then I’m going.

Traci: Okay, good. Good. I– I– I’m so glad that you feel strong enough to get to the bottom of this. And alan’s gonna help you every step of the way. But ashley, I’m going with you to paris. And I’m not gonna take no for an answer.

Ashley: I’m not gonna fight you on that.

Traci: Oh, good. Oh, good, because I’m not gonna interfere with alan. And whatever process he feels will make you better. But I’m gonna be there for you to give you the love and the support that you need.

Ashley: Thank you. Would you mind packing for me, please? And could you call and get the jet ready?

Traci: Of course, but where you going?

Ashley: I’m gonna go see alan.

Jack: Hold on, wouldn’t it be easier just to call him?

Ashley: I need to see him in person. I need to tell him what I experienced while it’s still fresh in my mind and let him know that I’m gonna take his advice. I promise you, my word of honor, I will do whatever I have to do to get better. I’ll see you soon.

Cole: You feel betrayed.

Victor: Yeah.

Cole: I understand. But we felt like this was the only way, victor. I mean, I swear, we only have the family’s best interest at heart.

Michael: What would happen if nikki were to stumble upon that secret panel, like cole did? What would happen to her sobriety if she were to find out that jordan was living in her basement?

Cole: Nobody wants to see you go to prison. My aunt is ruthless. If she somehow or another got the upper hand, if you slipped going down the stairs or she figured out a way to jimmy that lock, things could go wrong.

Michael: Unpredictable things. Things that would put everyone on the ranch in danger. In our plan, the only person who suffers is jordan.

Victor: So what’s your suggestion?

Cole: You be the hero. Just say your men found jordan washed up on the riverbank, barely alive.

Michael: You be the one to bring her in. Justice prevails because of victor newman.


Alan: Yes, I will call you as soon as she arrives, all right?

[ Knock on door ]

Alan: Oh, hold on. That may be her. Oh, come on in.

Ashley: Thanks.

Alan: Um, she’s here. Yes, will do.

Ashley: My brother?

Alan: Uh, your sister. They’re worried about you. Wondering if you’d disappear or wouldn’t show up where you said you would. I wish you’d called me. I would’ve come right over.

Ashley: You’re right. I’m losing my damn mind.

[ Cell phone chimes ]

Tucker: Hey, jean-jacques. Yeah, I’m sorry I had to cancel your meeting with audra, but she is to have no further contact with anyone at glissade, okay? Hold on, wait a minute. She’s meeting with the companies glissade acquired? How many do you know about? Uh, no, no, I’ll– I’ll take it from here. Um, yeah, I’ll… thank you. I’m gonna call you later.

Chelsea: Oh, oh, no.

Nick: Everything all right?

Chelsea: I completely missed a meeting with your daughter, also known as my boss.

Nick: Summer will certainly understand given the circumstances.

Chelsea: You know, adam’s really lucky you cover for him. I’ve been trying to focus at work, but it’s difficult. I’ve been really, really trying, but between you and me, my team has basically been on their own. I feel guilty.

Nick: Just take a leave of absence, chels. I mean, summer is a mother. She will absolutely understand.

Chelsea: No, I’d be letting too many people down. I thought about it, but I can’T. We’re finalizing our winter line. And my team is amazing, but I’m the only senior designer.

Nick: Okay, first, you gotta stop thinking that you’re letting anyone down. There’s gotta be a solution.

Chelsea: I can’t think of one.

Nick: There’s gotta be someone who could step in and help you finish the line.

[ Sally sighing ]

Sally: I’ve just been in a little bit of a funk about work, really. It’s nothing to worry about.

Adam: Okay. Well, if I promise not to worry, will you at least talk to me about it? ‘Cause it would make me feel a hell of a lot better to support you in a fraction of the way that you’ve let me lean on you.

Sally: Well, if you must know, I feel lost.

Adam: I knew it. I’ve been too distant lately.

Sally: No, no, no, no. This has absolutely nothing to do with you or us. We’re great. This is about my career. I’ve never been so unsure about my future.

Adam: Look, I know that I– I dropped the ball with victor about pushing your design company, okay? And I can pick that up with him again when I get back in town.

Sally: That’s the thing. I realized I don’t want you to. I think moving into interior design was a mistake. That may be the reason that my business hasn’t been a success is because my heart isn’t fully in it. I tried to convince myself that designing offices is the same as designing clothes, but I miss fashion. It’s in my dna.

Adam: So go back to it.

Sally: I’m just afraid that it’s too late. No, I mean, I’ve had my moment, a few of them, actually, and the business is fickle, memories are short. I could go to try and launch a line again and people are like, sally, who?

Adam: Okay, come on. I’m not gonna let you think like that. It is never too late to start over. Okay, and when I get back in town, I’m gonna do everything I can to help you do that.

Sally: Hearing you say it almost makes me believe that I can.

Jordan: My judge and jury. So, what’s the verdict? What are you gonna do with me?

Victor: Those two here will have me deliver you into the care of prison guards or the doctors of the loony bin.

Jordan: Is this some new trick, victor? You want me to believe this? No, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, you– you want me to die a slow and miserable death right in front of you?

Victor: You are an evil woman. You have done extraordinary damage to my family. Perhaps the story that i concocted, that you went onto that bridge whilst fleeing from my security guard, you slipped and plunged into waters 100 feet below. Maybe we make that story a reality. How’s that?

Jordan: Okay. I can’t play your game. You’ve won. You’ve won, you’re right. Done. Do with me what you will. Just put me out of my misery.

Victor: Not yet. With chewy, it’s never been easier

Adam: All right, the newman jet is all locked in. Are you, uh, good to go for first thing in the morning? Clear it with work?

Chelsea: I didn’t clear it with work yet, but I will. You know, I just had the most interesting conversation with nick. He suggested I take a leave of absence, step away from marchetti for a bit so I can focus on connor, not be pulled in a million directions.

Adam: I mean, that’s– that’s not a terrible idea.

Chelsea: Well, I’m sure nick would let you do the same.

Adam: No, I know he would, but working at newman is one of the few things that provides a welcome distraction. But then again, nick can step in for me at a moment’s notice. You don’t have the same luxury.

Chelsea: Yeah, my creative work certainly taps a different part of my brain, but I can’t access that when my heart is a thousand miles away with connor.

Adam: Okay, so do it.

Chelsea: I can’t, adam. I don’t have anyone to cover me. I’m not gonna leave summer in the lurch.

Adam: Look, I hope that this doesn’t sound too opportunistic, but I was just having a conversation and it might help both of you.

Chelsea: Okay, if you have an idea, go on.

Adam: Would you consider letting sally step in?

Alan: Why don’t we just take a breath, okay?

Ashley: So did traci tell you what happened?

Alan: Why don’t you tell me?

Ashley: Okay. Um, I’m talking to jack and traci and then I– I– I get kind of lightheaded and I– i guess I blacked out, which is what apparently I’ve been doing. And then I– I’m in this room and it’s all white, very bright white light and I’m there, but there’s two others of me, but we’re different. One is a– a bitch and the other one has like a southern accent and they’re fighting over me. They’re arguing over me.

Alan: What were they saying?

Ashley: They were saying that I should absolutely not go to paris with you and that I should let them take over. Is this what you meant? Is this what you were trying to explain to me?

Alan: I believe so, yeah. These personalities, alters, call them, they think they’re doing the right thing, ashley. They think they’re protecting you, but the fact that they exist at all means that there is something terribly wrong.

Ashley: Well, what are they protecting me from?

Alan: Well, that’s what we need to find out. I think you should go to paris with me as soon as possible.

Tucker: Yeah, hi, hayley. Uh, I need you to book me on the next flight to paris. Absolutely, tonight.

[ Jordan groaning ]

[ Jordan sobbing ]

Jordan: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. No, no, I will not die like this. I will not die like this. Not at your hands, victor, no. No, I will not. Help me, help me, help. Oh.

Cole: Just don’t fight.

Jordan: Please, please have mercy, please. Please, please.

[ Jordan panting ]

[ Jordan crying ]

Cole: Okay, put her back, put her back.

Victor: This is victor newman. We found that jordan woman who escaped from prison twice and who terrorized my family and almost killed my wife. We found her on the banks of the galewood river. Yes, that woman. She’s alive, we’ll bring her to you.

Cole: You’re doing the right thing.

Victor: No, cole, you and michael betrayed me. And that I will not easily forget. Thththe itch and rash of moderate to severe eczema <

Straight to voicemail again.

Everett, it’s Stephanie and I’m starting to worry. Where are you?

So you know why Everett was acting so strangely? Why he attacked Eric completely unprovoked? Look, you both understand that I can’t give you any information based on, on prior psychiatric sessions that I’ve had with him. I can only give you insights that I’ve gained from, from right here during the interview in this room because I am no longer his psychiatrist.

Understood. And since I am not his psychiatrist, I, I’m not privy to his latest thoughts or feelings. Do you have any possible diagnosis? Yes. It would only be possibilities. But they’d be based on what the four of us saw right here in this room. Well, I sure as hell know what I saw. And it was like he was two very different people.

Right. Bobby and Everett. Yeah. Bobby and Everett. And as you said, they’re very different people and they both are They both live inside his head.

Mmm. Mmm. Wow, this brownie is so good. I might have to get the recipe so I can add it to the menu on Sweet Bitch. Looks like someone is over their morning sickness. Yeah, it’s definitely subsiding. I can see that. In fact, I’m ravenous now. Yeah, I’ve noticed. But more than that, Johnny, I’m not just ravenous, but I’m excited.

About this little person that’s growing inside of me. Yeah, I’m excited too. So you know what? Screw it. Screw what? Fear and doubt and worry. I am deciding right here, right now, that I am done living in a perpetual state of dread over what being exposed to that radiation may or may not have done to our baby.

Okay. I, okay. So, I want to tell all of our friends and family that we’re expecting. And I want them to be just as excited about it as I am right now. I think it’s time that we shout it from the rooftops of Salem, the news of our pregnancy. So, what do you say?

I had cook prepare us a nice afternoon snack.

Darling, are you alright? Yes, um, Actually, I’m relieved. I just got a text from Holly saying how sorry she was for what she said to me. That’s so good, darling. But I knew she would come around eventually. Express regret over how much she hurt you. Bollocks. Yes. Rita, dammit, this could wait. I told you not to bother me today unless it was urgent.

That’s fine. Set it up for Monday morning. And don’t call here again without a damn good reason, alright? Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa. What? What? What? How you just snapped at Rita. There’s nothing new there. Really? I have never heard you speak to her like that. She has thick skin. She’ll be fine. Maybe so, but I’m sure she was thrown by it, just like I was.

AJ, I can tell something’s upsetting you. I’m fine, I promise. No, no, you’re not. What is going on? And what has got you so wound up?

Sloane, sweetheart. It’s obvious that Jude isn’t ours biologically. I know that you’re still mourning her loss of her baby and Stop. Stop. Please. Jude isn’t ours biologically or otherwise. Is this why Melinda was here? Is there something wrong with the adoption? No!

Sloan. Baby, don’t confuse. What is it?

That’s what I’m trying to tell you. What I did. You know what, you had a lot to drink last night. Let me get you some more, okay? He’s Nicole and EJ’s.

Nicole and EJ’s baby. He’s not dead. He’s very much alive. He’s right there. Jude is their son.

No, it’s not possible. It can’t be. It is. It’s true. I’ve been lying. I lied the whole time. Why? Because I didn’t want to lose you. Like sands through

the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

You don’t want me to tell people I’m pregnant, do you? What? No! No, of course! I want to tell people eventually, I just You, you want to wait until we’re sure that the baby is, is okay, that the radiation didn’t cause any, any problems? Yeah. Yeah, I, Johnny, I get that. I’m concerned about that too, obviously. But, I mean, aren’t you sick of just obsessing over all the what ifs?

Our baby could be perfectly healthy, right? So, why not think about the positive outcome? You know, isn’t it better to focus on that instead of the alternative? Yeah. Yeah. I guess it is. Yes, it definitely is. So, should we, I don’t know, throw, throw a party at the mansion to announce that we’re expecting? Or, ooh, I know, you can make us a video and then we can put it on, um, social media and blast it all over.

Okay, babe, let’s just, let’s slow down. No, I don’t want to slow down. I want to enjoy everything. every moment of this pregnancy and we can’t do that until we stop treating it like some big dark secret. What? What are you thinking? I’m just, I’m thinking that’s not the only reason, okay? It’s not just the scare of the radiation exposure that I’m hesitant to tell people you’re pregnant.

Okay, well, what’s the other reason?

It wasn’t so long ago that my dad and Nicole lost their baby. Oh. Yeah, right. Well, maybe E. J. and Nicole finding out that they have a grandchild on the way will be I mean, I know it’s not Nicole’s grandchild biologically, but still, maybe it’ll be just the news that they need to help them finally start to heal.

Yeah. Yeah, maybe. Johnny, we’re gonna have to tell them sometime. I mean, it won’t be long before I start showing. Oh. Uh, yeah, I actually hadn’t even thought about that. Well, daddy, it is high time you start thinking about it because this little one is here to stay. So, uh, it is time that we start thinking about the future.


Okay, I’m waiting for an explanation as to why you bit Rita’s head off on the phone just now. And why are you acting all edgy and anxious? It’s not a big deal, really.

I suppose I was hoping Paulina might be calling to say that she had come to her senses that she was going to keep me on as DA. Well, she damn well should come to her senses about that. Well, she’s not going to. She was final in her decision. Well, it was a terrible decision. Hey, you know what? You did a really good job.

It’s gonna be her loss. Most assuredly will be. And once I have her recalled as mayor, she is going to rue the day she crossed the DiMera. Okay. You will have plenty of time to figure out how to exact your non violent revenge against that woman. But, um, honey, aren’t we supposed to be relaxing this afternoon?

Yes, yes, yes, I remember. Yes, yes, yes. Okay, so why don’t you come here and sit down and I will rub your neck. Ooh, yes, please. Okay. How’s that? That’s lovely. Lovely, lovely. You have a hot date? Huh? Hmm? Why do you keep checking your watch? Don’t be silly. I’ve already snagged the hottest catch in town. Then why are you so concerned about the time, especially since said hottest catch has her hands all over your body?

There’s no reason. Oh, wow. Best up da Mira. Otherwise I’m going to have to play my hardcore techniques. Oh. Yeah. So tell me, why do you keep checking your watch? And why are you so on edge? Okay, okay.

Let’s just say I’m expecting a delivery.

You took another woman’s child? Because you were afraid to lose me?

I was grieving at the miscarriage and then I was told I was infertile. Knowing how much it meant to you to be a father, I thought that if I, if I couldn’t give you a baby, I thought that you would leave me. I wanted to have a family with you so badly. Especially after losing my parents, my brother. And when you agreed that we could adopt, I, I was so happy.

I was, oh, I was relieved. It felt like, you know, we’d been given a second chance.

What I didn’t tell you was that that adoption, that second chance, it fell through, like, very last minute. What? The parents of the little boy that we were supposed to get, before the baby was even born, they decided last minute to pull out. What? Why? Because, because they did some research into my background and they found that they didn’t want a horrible person like me raising their child.

I was devastated. It was like there goes our second chance. You know how bad living a happy little life with our family together. And then. And then what? And then Dimitri von Leuschner showed up on my doorstep with the baby. Well, hold on a minute.

He and Leo Stark, they delivered Nicole’s baby. On the roadside. And Dimitri, he was supposed to, he was supposed to take the baby to the hospital. Right, but he couldn’t because he was swarming with cops. He couldn’t take him to the hospital because he was on the lam. So he brought him to me instead. And that’s when I saw him holding a precious little baby boy.

I, I decided to, to keep him.

I saw it as our last chance of being parents. Our last chance at happiness. It was my last chance to hold on to you. And, uh, and that’s when

I made the choice to keep Nicole’s baby and take him as ours.

Are you saying that I’m saying that I think that Everett has DID. Dissociative Identity Disorder. Have you heard of it? I am kind of familiar with it, yes. Abigail DeMera had it. Right. Right. It’s very rare and it’s often misdiagnosed. Usually it happens because of some early childhood trauma. I think that Everett may have lashed out at Eric because he was triggered by something that happened in his own childhood.

Right. Okay, and so that triggering event, um, I am to turn into Bobby. Hmm. Oh my God. If this is true, this would explain so much. Yeah, Stephanie posted his bail. We should call her. Water.

Jada, hi. Hey, Steph. Have you seen Everett? I mean, today, since he’s been out on bail? No, actually. And I’ve been calling him, trying to reach him, but he’s not picking up. Do you know where he is? I don’t. But listen, there’s some new information that’s come to light. Can you come down to the station? We need to discuss some things.

So what kind of delivery are you expecting? Oh, uh, nothing that you need to concern yourself with. Not now, anyway. Not now. Why are you being so cryptic about all of this? Hey. Oh, hi. Hi there. . Oh, Nicole. Dad, I haven’t, uh, had a chance to talk to you since you lost your DA job. I’m, I’m, I’m sorry. I, uh, I appreciate that, Johnny.

Yeah. Um, me, me too. And I would put in a good word for you, but, uh. My mom and I are not really on the best of terms. I suppose that even you think your mother is in the wrong, leaving isolation and, um, subjecting you and others to radiation. Yes, I do. Especially because

I’m pregnant.

Horrible nightmare. Just tell me it’s not true. Yeah, I wish that I could. What about, what about those DNA test results that prove that Nicole and EJ weren’t Jude’s parents? The um, the results were, they were tampered with. What?

By you. Eric,

Eric, believe me, my heart is broken. I know yours is too, probably more than mine. I wish I didn’t have to tell you any of this right now. Then why are you? Why are you coming clean with this now? So you need to make a decision, Sloan. Do you want to say goodbye to your freedom? Spend the rest of your life surrounded by barbed wire, fencing, and surly guards.

All for a pyrrhic victory. Where do you want to start, and you? Anywhere in the world. Have you ever been to Milan? I hear there are quite a lot of single billionaires roaming around there.

Please, please, I can’t, I can’t, I need just more time. I, you have only 24 hours and not a second more. I’m coming clean now because I, I had to, I, I had to. Why? Why? Why?

Because you were getting closer and closer to the truth. Every fire that I would put out, another fire would pop up. What are you talking about?

Leo knew the truth. Leo delivered the baby on the side of the road. That’s why he felt such a bond with him. And then Dimitri told Leo that he dropped the baby off with me. That’s when Leo was, he was gonna tell me at the salium, isn’t it, that night that

when the money all dried up. Yeah. Nicole and I, we found a bar drunk and that’s when he said he had news to share with Nicole to make her happy and make me sad. That’s why Nicole, Felt such a bond with him as well, she must have just sensed it. You shunned her. You, you accused her of kidnapping your child.

I wanted to keep her. When you knew all along that you was her child, that her baby was alive. You, you put, Nicole and EJ threw hell making them think that their child was dead. I did it because I love you! No! I did it because I love you! Don’t tell me you love me! Don’t tell me you love me or Jude! Because nobody would have ever done that to me.

You’re not even capable of love.

Wow. You know, I have to say, I Out of all my years as detective, I’ve never run across anyone with DID and I have to admit that I kind of thought it wasn’t real. Well, there are lots of myths about DID but it is an actual illness, right. Was right. Abigail suffered with it and uh, had a hard time, as did Chad.

Yeah. But she was successfully treated, right. She was. And I think that Everett can be as well. Yeah, but, uh, who the hell knows where he is right now? Only Stephanie hadn’t bailed him out. Yeah. I assume you’re talking about my having bailed out Everett? That’s what we were talking about. Well, why shouldn’t I have?

What’s going on? Oh my goodness, this is so exciting! Congratulations! Oh, wow! Isn’t this exciting, EJ? It is, yeah. Yeah! You knew, didn’t you? I did. And you didn’t tell me? Neither of you told me? Is Is it because you think I couldn’t handle it? Or Oh, no, no, no, Nicole. It isn’t that. Nicole, look, we weren’t telling anyone at first, really.

And I only told my father in confidence. Yeah, and as soon as we decided to spread the word, we wanted to make sure that you were the first to know. Oh. Oh. Oh, that’s, that’s very sweet. Oh, you two are going to be such great parents. Johnny, may I have a, uh, private moment with you? Just a little father son talk.

Yeah, sure. Excellent. Sure. Excuse us both, it might be a moment. Yeah, of course. How could you do this? How could you do this to E. G. and Nicole? How could you do this to me? How could you Believe me, please. I know it was terrible. I don’t want to hear that. I did it because I love you. Please believe that. Can I just say it?

No, I just, I love you. I did it for us. I wouldn’t do anything for her. Don’t touch me. I love you. I love you. Stop. Stop! I love you. No! Stop! You ready to

go, big guy? What are you doing?

Can’t you figure this out? I’m gonna take,

I’m gonna take Jude back to his real parents.


God, I don’t believe this. But if you look at all the mixed signals that Bobby was sending, it makes sense. And now I realize that everything I was so angry at him about, everything he did to hurt me, the lying, the cheating, walking out on me, he only did that because his other personality didn’t know the other one existed.

It was, it was because of his illness. And now the question is, what do we do to help him? First thing that has to happen is he has to admit that he needs help. But you, you discharged him from your care. Do you not realize that he No, no, I, I did not discharge him. I urged him to stay in treatment. So he lied to me.

Yes. He’s resistant to getting help. For good reason, he’s He’s frightened. He’s terribly frightened. And that is where you come in. You’re not thinking straight, Johnny. Don’t do this. Why would you make this decision when you know full well that it is a mistake, a catastrophic mistake, in fact? Honestly, it’s none of your business.

Oh, but it certainly was my business when I flew that specialist in from Switzerland, right? You only did so that you could control our decision. Not true, damn it. I was trying to be helpful. You want to be helpful? Then be helpful. Okay, look. Chanel is excited. And happy. About this baby, okay? She has chosen to be optimistic.

She has chosen to believe that this baby will be a blessing to us no matter what. Okay. And what about you? Have you chosen to believe that too? Yeah. Yeah, I have. Okay. Okay, and I’m trying to be optimistic. I’m trying to be happy and excited. Okay, trying. Really? Because you are having serious misgivings about this.

I know you are. Okay, okay. I’m not gonna lie to you. I’ll admit I’m a little worried. Okay, I don’t know if going through with this pregnancy is the right thing, but I also don’t feel that it’s my place to say so. What do you mean it’s not your place? You’re the child’s father. I understand that, but Chanel is carrying our child, okay?

She’s my wife, whom I love and respect. And I’m not just gonna overrule what she wants. Well, as I said, I think you’re making a terrible mistake. Well, you’re entitled to your opinion. To me, if it makes my wife happy, then it’s never a mistake.

Here, I want you to have this. Tales of the Cuddly Bunny? Yeah. I, I got it at my baby shower, and um, You know, I thought I gave all the gifts away, and I came across this, and I, I just couldn’t give it up. And, and maybe this is why. Well, I’m really grateful. This is our, our first baby gift. And, Nicole, I know that this must be really, really hard for you.

It is. I have to admit. But I think it’s because seeing how excited you are reminds me of how excited I was to have a baby and to raise another child. But I, I want you to know, honey, I’m so very happy for you. Thank you. Thank you so much. That’s so wonderful.

Oh, my sweet little baby boy. Stay away from him.

At least let me say goodbye to him. No, you don’t get to do that. And don’t say another word.

Oh, oh gosh, I’m, I’m so sorry. What? No, you, you have nothing to be sorry about. Yes, yes I do. I mean, here you and Johnny have brought such wonderful news and I’m falling apart.

Nicole, darling, what’s wrong? Oh, uh, Chanel and I were just talking and I, I got emotional, understandably. No, no, not understandably. I should be focusing on the positive, and this baby is going to bring so much joy to all of us. Right, Grandpa EJ? Oh, of course, yes. Yeah. Okay, well, uh, I think we probably better head upstairs.

Okay. Right. Okay. And thank you, Nicole, for I’ll, um, I’ll see you guys later, okay?

Oh, my precious Nicole, I wish I could take your pain away. No one can. But I, I, I do, I do seem to move forward since, you know, I, I have a daughter. And I have a husband and a new job. Uh,

but I just, I have to accept the fact that The pain is always gonna be there. It is never gonna go away.

Hey, sweet boy.

I’ve come to love so much.

I’m gonna miss you. So much. I’m never, I’m never gonna stop missing you. Do you think it’s, what

you think about going to meet your own mommy and daddy now? Yeah.

I know. And don’t think about leaving at all. I’ll be back.

And you’ll pay for what you’ve done. I

want to help Everett in any way that I can, but what can I do? The most effective treatment for DID is intense, prolonged psychotherapy. Well, that’s if Bobby or Everett is a minimal to being helped. Right. And you’re hoping that I can convince him to get back into treatment? I think you’re the best shot we have.

You have a prolonged friendship. He trusts you.

Then I’m in. I’ll do whatever I can. All right. And this is the first step. Right. Um, is there any particular strategy to, uh, You know, persuade Everett that he has to get help. I think the best strategy is to proceed carefully. If he has a sense that you’re forcing him, he’ll become defiant and resistant.

Right. I understand. In short, we have to proceed very carefully. Yeah. But first, we have to find him.

So, how did it feel finally telling people about the pregnancy? Well, uh, EJ and Nicole are family, so It felt right. And, uh, what did your dad have to talk to you about? Why did he need to talk to you privately? Um, yeah, he just, um, you know, since he, you know, He hired that specialist. He now knows of all of the risks and dangers associated with the baby being exposed to radiation, so.

So? So Johnny, what did he say to you? So he just said, you know, he didn’t want me to worry about any of the bills that he’s got us covered. Oh! Wow, well that was, that was really, really kind of him. Yeah. So how was your talk with, um, Oh, man, it was so sad. Yeah, oh, look at this little book she gave me. She said she got it at her shower.

And she, uh, she kept it? Yeah. Yeah, she got rid of everything else, but she said she couldn’t bring herself to get rid of this book. Oh, that was, uh, very sweet of her to give it to you. Yeah. Yeah But Johnny she is just She’s still in such terrible pain Still grieving that little boy. She and your dad boss now with us You know having a baby of our own.

Yeah, it’s gonna make it even harder for her to heal I mean once I start showing and then the baby is born It’s just gonna be a constant reminder of her loss, you know, but there’s there’s No avoiding that, right? Yeah, there is. We could move out, get a place of our own.

Feeling better, I hope. I am. Thank you, honey, for taking such good care of me. It’s what I love to do. I’ll get it. Oh, maybe it’s the delivery you’re expecting. Geez. We’ll see. Oh.

Eric. Jude. What brings you by? Hey, Eric. Oh, hey cutie. What are you doing here?

Eric, what’s going on?

Jude. What about Jude? Your son.

He didn’t die.

Jude is your son. What? How? What? How?

Oh, I know, I know. I know. I know. Hey, buddy. Hey, buddy.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[String playing classical music]

Sheila: [Laughs] Oh… I have been praying for this…

Finn: [Sighs]

Sheila: …Hoping that– that you would make it to my wedding, and here you– you are, my beautiful, beautiful boy.

Finn: [Exhales]

[Seabirds calling]

Steffy: What are the girls up to?

Liam: Oh, they’re just making sock puppets of us and finn and hayes.

Steffy: Oh, no.

Liam: Oh, yes.

Steffy: [Laughs] I’m almost afraid to ask. What do we– what do we look like?

[Laughing] Is…is that you?

Liam: [Goofy voice] Spitting image, right?

Steffy: [Laughs] I don’t even wanna know how I turned out.

Liam: Ooh. Still working on that. Uh, kelly wants to get the, uh, the hair just right.

Steffy: That makes sense.

[Laughter] I love when they are together.

[Girls giggling in distance] I also love how it’s making me forget about deacon and sheila’s wedding today.


Brooke: Oh, eric, you are looking better and better.

Eric: Makes me wonder what I looked like before.

Brooke: [Laughs]

Eric: Thanks for checking in on me. I appreciate it. So, uh, is it true, what I’ve been hearing?

Ridge: Is what true?

Eric: Donna’s with katie, and they just texted me, and they said that, uh, deacon and sheila are getting married today?

Ridge: Bad news travels fast.

Eric: What the hell is deacon thinking?

Eric: Well, I’m one to talk, aren’t I, having been married to sheila myself?

Ridge: That is not the same thing. There’s no comparison.

Eric: [Sighs] Yeah.

Brooke: Eric, you had no way of knowing all those years ago what a sociopath sheila was.

Eric: But deacon knows. He’s gone into this eyes wide open.

Ridge: He knows exactly what that woman did to her family. But apparently, that makes no difference to him.

Steffy: If deacon was smart, he’d call off this wedding, save him all the pain and misery later down the line.

[Girls chattering indistinctly in distance]

Liam: Do you think they’re doing the deed right now?

Steffy: [Sighs]

[Girls giggling in distance] Probably. I don’t know. Deacon and sheila told finn that they’re gonna have the wedding at the beach.

Liam: Oof. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was happening…right below us.

Steffy: Trust me, I’ve already looked. I know sheila wants nothing more than to have finn at her wedding.

Finn: Look, I, um… I just came to pick up some pizzas.

[Horn honks in distance] Okay, why–why are you get– you two said you were getting married on the beach.

Sheila: Oh, we– we changed our mind.

Deacon: Look, you–you gotta wait for your pizzas anyway. Why don’t you just stay?

Finn: [Sighs]

Sheila: Yes. Sweetheart, please stay. This–this was– this was meant to be.

Finn: [Sighs]

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Eric: How’s hope doing with all this? I mean, it’s one thing to realize the two of them are sharing an apartment, but… but for her father to marry this sociopath?

Brooke: You know my daughter. She says she’s never going to forgive or forget all of the horrible things sheila’s done to our lives, but…

Eric: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Meanwhile, she loves her father, and she’s over there supporting him right now.

Eric: You didn’t try to talk her out of it?

Brooke: No, I did try to talk her out of it.

Eric: Well, did you succeed?

Brooke: Apparently, she thinks that there may be a change in sheila.

Eric: What?

Brooke: Well… [Sighs] She thinks that it’s because of her father, because of his positive influence, and the love that deacon has for sheila is actually making a difference.

Ridge: I’m so sorry. And this is ridiculous. I know you love your daughter, but if she thinks that sheila has changed, that’S…not just concerning. That’s dangerous.

Steffy: [Sighs] The girls will be getting hungry soon.

[Girls chattering indistinctly in distance]

Liam: Yeah, well, I’m sure, ’cause making… eerily realistic sock puppets…

Steffy: [Laughs]

Liam: …Works up an appetite.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh.

Liam: It’s actually really nice of finn to go pick up the pizza.

Steffy: Yeah, it’s nice of him to drive all the way to il giardino, especially when there’s so many pizza joints around here. But kelly–I mean, she just… loves deacon’s specialty pizza, so…

Liam: [Laughs] She’s very particular.

Steffy: She is.

Liam: It’s kind of ironic… finn going to deacon’s restaurant today of all days.

Steffy: Well, at least he doesn’t have to worry about running into sheila today.

Sheila: Please, finn, sweetheart.

Finn: I… [Sighs]

Sheila: Say that you’ll stay for the ceremony.

Deacon: Come on, finn. What do you say? Look, tom’s gonna keep it short and sweet. Won’t you, buddy? I mean, you remember tom, right?

Finn: Yeah, uh, from when we found sheila.

Deacon: Yeah, he told us to look in the warehouse, you know, where sugar was keeping your mother. I mean, we never would have known to look. In my book, that makes this guy a superhero.

Sheila: In mine, too.

Tom: Oh, s-superhero is laying it on a little thick, don’t you think?

Deacon: No, I don’T. You helped save my bride’s life. In my book, that makes you a superhero, and I’m just glad that you’re here. I mean, life is so crazy, right? I mean, who knew when I invited tom to come to the wedding that it would turn out that he’s actually a licensed wedding officiant?

Finn: Huh.

Tom: I wore many a hat in my past life.

Deacon: [Laughs] I mean, are we lucky, or are we lucky? And hope’s agreed to be your mother’s maid of honor.

Finn: You have?

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Deacon: So, come on, finn. What do you say? Just stick around to the end of the ceremony while you’re waiting for your pizzas.

Sheila: Finn, sweetheart, please. Uh, deacon’s right. I… it’s gonna be a short ceremony. It’s just us exchanging our vows.

Finn: Uh… [Sighs] S-sure. Sure.

Sheila: Yes!


Tom: First of all, I wanna say how honored I am to be here. Now, I have not known you two for very long. Life works in mysterious ways. Fate brought me here… just as fate brought you two together. Now, deacon, I saw the passion and care you had in saving this woman’s life. You, too, finn. I mean, you are both amazing men. And, sheila, I look into your eyes, and I see the passion and love that you have for deacon and finn. Now…I’ve spoken with deacon, and I know a little bit about your past. I think all of us here believe in the power of redemption and second chances.

Bladder leak

underwear has one job.

Eric: I agree with ridge. I think it’s frightening that– that hope–that hope would even buy into this, this whole idea that sheila’s changing.

Brooke: Wait. Okay. [Laughs] I don’t think she’s buying into it. I just think she’s being open for her father. By the way, I did tell her how I felt about it, especially her being maid of honor.

Eric: Wait. Wait. She’s standing up for sheila?

Ridge: Yeah. Can you believe that?

Brooke: Yeah. I just– I just hope she doesn’t go through with it.

Ridge: Why can’t she just do what finn did– just walk away from it?

Brooke: Well, about that– she did say that she thinks there’s a part of finn that would like to be there for his mother.

Ridge: Oh. I’m sure there is. The point is, finn is gonna be nowhere near that wedding. I promise you.

Liam: Hey, can I ask you something?

[Girls chattering indistinctly in distance]

Liam: Uh…

[Girls giggling in distance] Finn wouldn’t tell me, but how is he really doing, knowing that his birth mom and deacon are getting hitched today?

Steffy: Honestly, I’M… I’m not completely sure. But I-I do know this. Finn totally gets why he can’t make an appearance at the wedding today.

Tom: Well, all righty. You two lovebirds didn’t come here to listen to yours truly gab.

[Laughter] So… it’s time for you to talk to each other, speak your vows.

[Horn honks in distance] Have at it, deacon.

Deacon: Okay, um… I didn’t write anything down because I wanted to make sure that I-I spoke from my heart, not from my head. Sheila, you came into my life like…a hurricane, and you turned it upside down in every possible way, in the best possible ways. You know, I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life, and tom talked about redemption and second chances, and the good lord has also seen fit to give me quite a few of them, coming out of prison, reconnecting with my beautiful daughter… having this unbelievable business, but most important, having the second chance to be with the woman who I love more than anyone in this world and to be the very best husband that I can be, and that’s one second chance that I’m gonna make the most of because I love you.

Sheila: Wow. Well, you talk about miracles. Brushed up my life, and I’m here getting married to you. I have hope as my maid of honor, and I have my son, who… is here to share on my wedding day. My heart has never been so full. Deacon, you have always stood by me, no matter what. When I need strength, you are my strength. And when I need guidance… you make me a better person. You complete me. And all I’ve ever wanted… I have right now. Because all I’ve ever wanted is to be loved… completely. And I feel that. True…complete love. And you give that to me. You give that to me every day, always. And I love you.

[Mouths words]

Sheila: [Exhales] (Chef vo) fancy feast. at that

[Birds chirping]

Eric: Finn is not gonna be at that wedding today.

Ridge: No, of course not.

Brooke: Well, unfortunately, hope said there is a part of finn that would like to be at the wedding. However, his loyalty, his commitment will always be to steffy.

Ridge: It better be.

Liam: It was deacon’s idea, right, to invite finn today?

Steffy: Apparently, he knew how much it would mean to his bride if her son were there.

Liam: Yeah, yeah. Do you think sheila put deacon up to it?

[Girls giggling]

Steffy: You know what? Sheila can try to manipulate him, but it’s not gonna work. Finn’s not gonna be part of her life ever.

Liam: What is taking finn so long at il giardino?

Seffy: I know.

Tom: [Exhales deeply] Well, it’s time to get to the nitty gritty.


Tom [Clears throat]

Tom: Do you, deacon, take this woman to be your wedded wife? And will you be faithful to her for as long as you shall live?

Deacon: I do, and I will.

Tom: Then repeat after me. “I, deacon…”

Deacon: I, deacon…

Tom: “Take you, sheila to be my wedded wife…”

Deacon: Take you, sheila, to be my wedded wife…

Tom: “To have and to hold…”

Deacon: To have and to hold…

Tom: “From this day forward…”

Deacon: From this day forward.

Tom: “For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.”

Deacon: For richer, poorer, in sickness and in health.

Tom: “To love and to cherish till death do us part.”

Deacon: To love and to cherish until death do us part.

Tom: Do you, sheila, take this man to be your wedded husband and will you be faithful to him for as long as you shall live?

Sheila: I do.

Tom: Then–

Sheila: Yes, I will.


Tom: Then repeat after me. “I, sheila, take you, deacon to be my wedded husband.”

Sheila: I, sheila, take you deacon, to be my wedded husband.

Tom: “To have and to hold from this day forward.”

Sheila: To have and to hold from this day forward.

Tom: “For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.”

Sheila: For richer, for poorer, sickness and in health.

Tom: “To love and to cherish till death do us part.”

Sheila: To love and to cherish till death do us part.

Tom: Um… the rings?

Deacon: Oh. Finn, would you hand these to tom for your mother and me?

Tom: These rings are symbols of eternity in the unbroken circle of love. Love freely given has no beginning or end. You’ve chosen to exchange rings as a sign of your love. Deacon, put this ring on sheila’s finger and repeat after me. “With this ring, I give you my heart.

Deacon: With this ring, I give you my heart.

Tom: “I promise, “from this day forward, you shall not walk alone.”

Deacon: I promise, from this day forward, you shall not walk alone. All nine toes of you.


Sheila, put this ring on deacon’s finger and repeat after me. “With this ring…

Sheila: With this ring,

Tom: “I give you my heart.

Sheila: I give you my heart.

Tom: “I promise, “from this day forward…

Sheila: I promise, from this day forward…

Tom: “You shall not walk alone.”

Sheila: You shall not walk alone. No, you will always be walking beside me with my nine toes.


Well, by the power vested in me by the state of california, it is my great pleasure to pronounce deacon and sheila husband and wife. Deacon, you may kiss your bride.


Sheila: [Laughing]

Deacon: [Laughing]



Announcer: Here’s a look at what’s ahead.

Poppy: And I’ve loved you from the moment I first saw you.

Bill: Let’s do it now.

Brooke: Steffy, this has nothing to do with the company.

Steffy: It’s a business decision. Hope for the future needs to come to an end… today.
