Tuesday Jan 3

Kiriakis mansion - Part 1: Brady comes down the stairs decked out in a track suit and finds Madison in the living room working away on her laptop. He was disappointed to wake up and not find her in bed with him. Madison played last night so she had to make up for it this morning. Sami couldn't have quit at a worse time. Now they are not only behind on all these Mad World projects, she has to find and train a brand new executive. Brady tells her if there's anything he can do to help ... Madison appreciates that. She's going to have to make some very tough decisions. I'm going to have to push back the date of the Men's line promotional tour. Brady - Yeah, I know you get crazy when I try to tell you how to run your business but you're not doing that. Madison asks why. Because it's tied together with too many Titan cross promotions - it would completely throw off the schedule. Madison argues that her company is not ready and she's not going on a tour of this importance without proper preparation. Brady tells her to put all her available resources behind prepping for this tour. It would be too damn expensive to change the dates now. Madison has more important projects to focus on like the development of her new product line. Brady doesn't mean to pull rank here but ... Madison - If you're going to remind me again that you own my company, please don't, because I am the CEO of Mad World Cosmetics and I will damn well run things the way I see fit. I thought you respected me enough to let me handle things my way. Brady does respect her but Mad World is not the only company he has to worry about. I have to worry about Titan and I can't play favourites. If I push back the promotional dates, it not only affects Mad World, it affects Titan as a whole. Madison - You know what you're doing, right? You're overcompensating because we're dating. You're being harder on me than you are on any other executive because you don't want anyone to think you're favouring Mad World. Brady - That's completely untrue. I can't let you operate under a different set of rules then the other execs just because we're together. I'm treating you just like I'd treat anybody. Madison - Really? You didn't even want to hear why it was the better thing to do to push back the promotion tour. You just dismissed me out of hand. Would you have done that to any other executive if you weren't sleeping with them? Brady - Would you complain like this to a boss you weren't sleeping with? Madison - Maybe that's the problem. That's what I was afraid of all along. Maybe we shouldn't be sleeping together.


CW - Kate's office - Part 1: Kate asks Sami if she enjoyed her first day tour. She did. Her office at Mad World was just on a blueprint so it will be nice not to have to work out of a table at her grandmother's pub. Yes, she completed her HR paperwork and if I haven't said it before, thank you for the job. Kate - Come to think of it, I don't think you did thank me. Sami - I just hope neither of us regrets this. Kate - You're welcome. Sami knows she can contribute a lot to Countess W. She holds out a file - I've put together a list .. Kate - That's enough. You can put that away for later. Right now we're going to get down to the main reason you were hired. I want you to tell me everything you know about Mad World Cosmetics. Sami - So that's why you hired me; because you want me to give you all the Mad World secrets. I actually believed you the 10th time you told me you were hiring me because I was good. How could I be so stupid! Kate - I did mean it. I think you're smart and I think you're driven. I wouldn't have hired you if you weren't but the main asset you have right now that I'm interested in is your knowledge of the inner workings of Mad World. Sami - What you're asking me to do is unethical and probably illegal. Kate - Yeah probably. Why are you asking? Sami - Because for people that have a conscious, it's a problem. Kate - Then it shouldn't be a problem for you. Sami - It's not right. Kate - There's no room in this business for rightneous indignation so stop the nonsense and tell me what Madison has planned for her company. Sami - No, I'm not doing it. I'm not selling out Madison to you. Kate asks why she's suddenly so loyal to Madison. She didn't exactly treat you well. Wasn't she part of the reason you left the company? Sami - One thing you can say about Madison is that she's very straightforward and loyal. Kate says that's a joke. Sami is serious. She worked really hard to build her company from the ground up and I don't think it's right that it just gets destroyed because I'm passing along trade secrets to you. She gave me an opportunity and I owe her for that. Kate - Now you owe me for giving you an even better opportunity. Sami - This isn't right. Kate - So you've said over and over again. Since when have you cared about what's right? Because as long as I've known you the only person important to you is Sami Brady. And when I hired you I was hoping to benefit from that legendary self-absorption. Sami - It is my self-absorption that is making sure I don't go along with your stupid plan. Kate - How's that? Sami - I signed a non-disclosure agreement with Madison. If I get caught I'd be arrested for industrial espionage and then I would go to jail which is probably what you planned all along. Kate tells her to stop being so melodramatic. There is no way Madison could ever prove that you told me anything. Sami - You're insane. You're willing to play Russian Roulette with my life. Kate - No, what's insane is you screwing up a once in a lifetime career opportunity. This job can take you places you've never dreamed of. Sami - Right, like the minimum security prison for white collar criminals. Kate - I'm being serious. Be a team player and move up the corporate ladder. Sami - And if I'm not a team player? Kate - You'll be fired. It's your choice.


HTS - Part 1: Jen thanks Nicole and EJ for meeting with her, Abe and Lexie. Jen thinks they've been having a hard time coming up with a forum or even an agenda for the mayoral campaign and the clock is ticking. EJ is surprised that Alexandra is here - he thought she had patients to look after. Lexie reminds him that Abe is her top priority; the debates are a crucial part of the process. Jen - Unless you're afraid to face down Abe when it comes to the actual issues. EJ scoffs. Abe - The sooner we get this settled, the sooner we can get back to work and you can get back to doing whatever it is you do. EJ says let's get this going then. Jen mentions that there is one sticking point. We feel the people need to get their voices heard so I'm curious as to why you don't want to let the voters ask questions. Nicole - We have a limited amount of time to get our point across. Do we want to give the mic to Joe the plumber! Jen - So you're saying you don't think it's important for the candidates to hear and respond to the issues the voters care about the most. EJ steps away to take a phone call. Abe gets a call as well so he also steps away. Nicole belittles Jen's point about letting the voters be heard. She claims the typical voter puts more thought into which reality contestant they're going to keep on their show. EJ and Abe both finish their calls. They can hear the women talking so EJ suggests giving them a little more time. Abe chuckles - Sounds like a plan. It sure seems like they haven't noticed that we're gone. EJ - I'm not sure they actually noticed we were there in the first place. Abe - You would think they're the ones running for office. It's EJ's turn to chuckle. He says Nicole is doing a good job but all this strategizing is very tiresome. I wish we could just jump to the end of this whole thing. Abe - You mean after you've won the election and you get to run this city your way. If you're elected, you'll we be working for her and all of us. I can see you at the County Fair in the dunking booth. One of the good things about you being a candidate is you raised a hell of a lot of money there. I know you're used to being in complete control of your life and everyone else's and you probably think that's what being mayor is all about. And sure, you do get to run the city but you don't control the city council. EJ asks if he's advicing him to sit back and be mainly ineffectual. Abe - Actually what I was saying is that you need a strong vision. You have to stick to your guns after all the buck does really stop with the person in charge. EJ - For once I actually agree with you. They look over as Jen and Nicole's voices get louder. Nicole gets up and tells Jen to cancel the whole thing.


John & Marlena's townhouse - Part 1: Will comes into the living room and thanks Marlena for letting him stay over last night. I didn't want to go home after what I told you. Marlena tells him he can stay over whenever he likes. Will asks if John was upset. Marlena - Why would he be? Oh, I didn't discuss our conversation if that's what you mean. But he did make us some breakfast. Do you feel hungry? Will says thanks. He thanks her for not pushing him last night. He knows she wanted to talk more about what he told her but he couldn't. Marlena understands but she is glad that he confided in her. She would like to talk to him about what he saw and how he is feeling. Are you up for that now? Will thinks he should go home because his mom and Rafe are probably worried about him not coming home last night. Marlena texted his mom to let her know where he is. Marlena knows it's hard talking about this but if he keeps it bottled up inside, it's going to make him sick. Will thinks it already has. Marlena - Then let's get it out of you so it can't do anymore harm. What you saw with your mom and EJ ... Will - You know what, you want to talk about it - fine. Let's talk about it but let's also call it what it is. They were having sex, not 'what happened', they were having sex. I caught my mom and EJ having sex. She broke her vows to Rafe and she betrayed our family so I am not going to forgive her. Marlena asks when all this happened. Will - When Johnny was missing. Can you believe that? Marlena - That doesn't make any sense. Will - Since when does anything my Mom does make any sense. And meanwhile Rafe was looking like crazy for her son. And when we found him I had to go look for her because she turned her phone off and she wouldn't answer her calls. Marlena remembers that happening. Will - I ended up going to the DiMera mansion to tell EJ that we found Johnny alive and that the news report was wrong. Marlena - What happened then? Will - I knocked on the door and no one answered. I remembered it was the servants night off so I got my key out and walked in (As he's talking we're shown a replay in black and white) and they didn't hear me. Marlena - So they had no idea that you were there? Will - No. I got the hell out of there before they could see me. I wish that I could erase that picture from my mind because I knew my mom was selfish. I knew that. I wish I never had to know what a heartless, evil, slut she really is. Marlena - I want to tell you something. Your mother loves you and she's still your mother. Will - Okay. What kind of mother is that really? Because no she does not love me. She's doesn't love me. She doesn't love Rafe. She doesn't love Johnny. The only person that she's ever loved EVER is herself. Marlena - Will ... Will yells - No. Stop. Don't tell me to calm down okay because she finally did something right by marrying Rafe. And because of what she has done, our family will be torn apart and I hate her for that. I hate her because she did that.


HTS - Part 2: Abe and EJ are now standing by the women's table. Nicole argues with Jen that it's not too much to ask that the questions be pre-approved. Abe declares that it's time for a cease fire. EJ and I could hear you all across the plaza. Nicole - So. EJ - So in the interest of curtailing World War 111, Abe and I have made some decisions on our own. Jen - You made decisions without any input from us? Nicole - This ought to be good. Lexie - What did you come up with? EJ - There will be 3 televised debates ... Abe - And the topics for the debates will be first jobs and the economy in Salem. Second, social issues and third, the enviroment. EJ - There will be one moderator approved by both campaigns. They will ask the questions. The public will have the opportunity to submit questions in advance. The moderator will then pick from those questions. Abe - And neither candidate will have the right to approve or disapprove any question and the content of the question will be held in confidence from all parties until before the debates. EJ - So those are our terms. Do you ladies see what actually can be achieved when you handle things coolly and calmly. Nicole laughs. So do Lexie and Jen. EJ asks 'what's so funny?' Nicole - Jennifer, Lexie and I pretty much came up with that same plan. Abe - So what was all the arguing about? Nicole - That's how we reached our decision. Jen - Just because we were passionately defending our position doesn't mean we were being unproductive. Nicole - And you would never make that assumption about a professional argument between men ... just saying. Lexie - Abe, don't you think that's a bit sexist? EJ - Don't answer that Abe, it's a trap. The women laugh again.


Kiriakis mansion - Part 2: Brady asks if they made a mistake trying to make this work - do you want to break up? Madison - No. I'm sorry. I'm just frustrated. So is Brady. I'm trying really hard to balance these two worlds; the professional and the personal. It's hard to do. Madison tells him he's doing a great job and she appreciates it. It doesn't matter how professional we are, what we're attempting to do is pull off an incredibly delicate act ... Brady - And it's a lot harder to do than I thought but I want to make it work. So does Madison. You and Mad World are the two most important things in my life right now and I'm not giving up on either one of them. They agree to hit the restart button on this conversation and come up with some sort of compromise.


CW - Kate's office - Part 2: Sami - I still can't believe how far you're willing to go to get what you want. Kate - I don't know why you're so surprise; we're just alike. Sami - I am not that ruthless. Kate - In business, no because you haven't had a job for more than 5 minutes. But in your personal like you put me to shame. Sami - Oh really. I don't go around poisoning people's brownies. Kate - No, you just gamely pump a bullet into your ex-lover's brain. Maybe if you could use that killer instinct in your career, you wouldn't be always out of work. Sami - You know what, I should never have left Mad World to work for you. Kate - You should have stayed and been a slave to Madison James for the rest of your life. Would you have liked that? Regardless, it's too late now. There's nothing you can do. You can't go back. What I'm asking of you is no big deal really. It happens in the corporate world all the time. Madison is probably expecting us to do this. And if all goes right, you will be amply rewarded. Sami - What do you mean, if it goes right. Kate - I didn't expect you to have a sudden attack of personal ethics. Let's just get real. Jobs are scarce. I need you right now and you need me so let's make it simple. Are you in or are you out? Sami - Fine, I will tell you everything you need to know. Kate - I knew you would see the light so tell me what Madison has planned. Sami - She spends all her time working on a top secret project that she's convinced will be a sure fire hit. Kate - What is it? Sami - It is a new product line for young, vibrant, bold women. Kate - The oh so elusive but profitable 18-34 set. Sami - Yes. Believe me, she set aside a ton of money for the ad campaign. Kate - When's the launch? Sami - I don't know. I think the launch date has been pushed back because there's been problems, delays on the product line. Kate - 'Til when? Sami - We don't have a date yet and Madison is very upset about the delays. Kate laughs - I could kiss you right now.


John & Marlena's townhouse - Part 2: Will - You know what it was like for me growing up; my mom wasn't around for me because she was too busy jumping from one guy to the next. Marlena - Sami was very young when you were born. Will - That doesn't excuse the things that she did. She lied to me about who my dad was. Marlena - I know she made mistakes and she knows that too. Will - Then why does she keep making them? Because I don't want Johnny, Allie and Sydney to have the kind of life I did. All I ever wanted for them was to grow up and have a solid family that they can count on. Marlena - They have that right now. Will - Yes they do because of Rafe. Rafe was the one that made our family whole and Mom was the one who ruined that. Marlena - Do you have any idea if Rafe knows what happened. Will - I'm sure he doesn't know because my mom would never admit that. Marlena - So it might not be a good idea for him to know, you think? Will - Personally, I feel like I owe it to him to tell him the truth because if your wife cheated on you, for God's sake, you deserve to know. Marlena - What would happen then? Will - He would leave and Johnny and Allie and Sydney would lose the only good thing they've ever had in their lives. Marlena - You don't want that to happen, do you? Will - No, but Mom doesn't deserve Rafe and Rafe deserves to know the truth but honestly I am too scared to be the one who ruins that; who ruins that family and takes that from them. So I don't know what to do. You know what made me sick. The vow renewal ceremony. My mom promising, hey, I'm going to be faithful. Yeah, like that's ever going to happen. Marlena - It's so clear now. Why Sami was so desperate to renew her vows in front of God and her family. She was looking for a brand new start. Will - Isn't it a little late for that? Marlena - I know Sami made a terrible mistake but she was filled with so much fear when Johnny went missing. And then the news report came on saying they'd found his body. She thought she had lost her son forever. Will - So she had to have sex with EJ to make herself feel better? What kind of excuse is that? Marlena - That kind of fear makes people do things that they would never do normally. I don't think Sami and EJ got together out of lust. I think because Johnny was missing they were so terrified, in so much pain, they were doing anything they could just to get out of pain. Will - Grandma, it doesn't matter why she did it. She cheated on Rafe with a man that she hates. She slept with the man who has hurt our family so many times. How do you know that was the only time? Marlena - I don't know that but I believe it was the only time. I believe that Sami loves Rafe so much that's why she wanted to renew her wedding vows; to make that marriage new again, fresh again, safe again. And that guilt must be eating her alive inside. Will - How can you defend her? Marlena - Because I made the same mistake. You know that. I betrayed my wedding vows to your grandfather and sent our family into utter chaos, especially Sami who went into a tailspin at that point. And now all these years later my sins have come full circle.


CW - Kate's office - Part 3: Kate is on the phone - I don't care if it's your day off. Be in the office in an hour or you're fired. Kate tells Sami they're set to meet with the head of product development today. Sami - Great. Let's plan this out because if we launch a product that's too similar to Madison's, she'll know that I gave everything away. Kate assures her that it's all taken care of. I have people who's sole mission in life is to take care of things like that. Sami - Is that the only way Countess W succeeds - by stealing ideas from the competition? Kate - I have complete confidence in everything we do. We have great, top quality products but in this market we need to cover all our bases. Sami - You mean, in this case, covering our asses. Kate - Whatever rinky dink ideas Madison has, we're going to improve them tenfold. So do you have more information that could get us on the fast track? Sami - Yeah, I have some other stuff at home on my laptop. Kate - Go get it and be back in the office in an hour. Sami - Why the rush? Kate - Because we need to beat Madison to the market and we're behind right now. The only way we're going to pull this off is if we get a move on. Now go.


John & Marlena's townhouse - Part 3: Will - You can not blame yourself for something my mom did. Marlena - I know that Sami is responsible for her own actions but a part of me feels that what John and I did was so deeply scarring for her that she's still troubled by it even today. Will - That was years ago. That was before I was born. Marlena - I know that and I can't condemn your mother. And even if I could, it's not my place. Any you know what else, it's not your place either. Will - If you're asking me to forgive her, I don't think I'm going to be able to because I can't even look at her the same way. Marlena - You need to try. Will - No, I'm sorry I can't. No. Marlena - If you won't do it for her, than do it for yourself. I have seen firsthand what happens to someone that carries a terrible, dark secret. Sami acted out in unthinkable ways. She did things so awful she regrets them to this day. I don't want you going down that road. I don't want you having the same kind of difficult relationship with your mother that your mother has with me. I hate to say it but in all this time we haven't been able to recover from what happened. I don't want you making those same mistakes. I want you to go find your mother, put the animosity behind you because if you don't, the only person that it hurts is going to be you.


Kiriakis mansion - Part 3: Brady and Madison are now working together. Brady says first - bring in some executives from your other offices to cover the slack of Sami leaving. Madison - I'll still have to push back the men's tour, but not by much. Brady will inform the other corporate heads that they'll have to adjust their calendars to accomodate hers. Madison - Then I can focus on my new top secret line. Brady likes the sound of that plan - he wants to kiss her now. They kiss. Brady just thought of something bad though. Sami was very instrumental in developing that new product line, wasn't she? What is she takes that information to Kate? Madison - She signed a confidentality agreement. Brady - Good. Madison - She wouldn't break that, right? Brady - No. Sami's done a lot of crazy things in her life but one thing she's not is stupid. Madison is getting ready to leave. Brady wants her to know that when it comes to the workplace, he's going to be as fair as possible and give her the same consideration as every other Titan executive officer. Madison - Except for this - she kisses him - he kisses her back.


Rafe & Sami's loft: Will comes in and sees Sami working on her laptop. He didn't think she would be home. Sami - I just have to grab something off the computer. I'll be out of your way in a second. Her cell rings. Will - Before you go, I was wondering if maybe ... Sami - I have to take this. It's Kate asking if she has that information yet. No, she's just pulling it up now. Kate - Chop chop. Sami mutters that the laptop is freezing up on her - she's going to have to take it with her. What were you saying? Will - Nothing. You better go. Sami is sorry. I will be home later and we can talk about whatever you want. She leaves.


John & Marlena's townhouse - Part 4: Marlena gets a call from Will. I just talked to Mom and she made it pretty clear that she doesn't have time for anyone but herself. Marlena is sorry. Tell me what happened. Will - She was all involved in some work thing and before I could say anything she rushed back to the office. Marlena - Well it was a bad time. Isn't this her first day at work? Will - Yes, that's no excuse. Marlena - I know it's not. You have to try again. This time pick a time when she's not busy or distracted. Will - No. I'm sorry. I think this is a bad idea. I'm not ready to hear anymore of her crap. I know I won't be able to forgive her and I'm not sure that I ever will. He hangs up.


HTS - Part 3: As Nicole and EJ are strolling through the square she comments that it looked like he and Abe were old buddies back there. EJ - We have our moments. Oh, you have a problem with that, do you? Nicole - Should I? You're still going to go in for the kill, right? EJ - Absolutely. Nicole - Good, because I have a plan. I'm going to make sure I get the questions from the moderator ahead of time. She tells him not to worry about the details, you just worry about the results, which means you will have your answers ready and Abe won't know what hit him. EJ - I knew there was a reason I hired you. He kisses her. They leave. Jen watches and then says - It's clear to me that Nicole does't want any unscripted moments which means she is going to get those questions for EJ before the debate. Abe - You really think so? Lexie is sure of it. Nicole and my brother will do anything to win. Jen - Don't you worry, I intend to find a way to stop them.


CW - Kate's office - Part 4: Sami returns. My computer froze up but I think it's working now. Kate - Email everything to me. Sami - I can't do that. That leaves a paper trail. I'm just going to show it to you. Kate - Good idea. You know it's funny, for so many years we've been at each other's throats when we should have been working together. Now that we're a team I have a feeling we're going to be unstoppable.


John & Marlena's townhouse - Part 5: Marlena looks at a picture of Will and Sami and recalls when Sami confronted her about about making love with John. (Classic scene!) She picks up the picture - Oh dear God, this can't be happening again.


Preview: Bo to Marlena - I'm responsible for what happened to our little boy. (Hope is there with him). Sonny to Will - You can tell me anything. Abigail confronting Melanie and Chad - What the hell is this?

he says fine
she says after we eat maybe we can play poker
kids are at grandmas so we can have fun

she wants him to tell his mom, get it off his chest
he says he cant ,,,it would kill rafe
she says maybe his mom would find the courage to tell rafe herself
he says she would never do that , she is so selfish she would make me feel guilty for telling her and she would make me keep her secret for life
she is going to take this one to the grave
marlena says im not so sure
we all have secrets,we may be afraid to share those secrets
but your mother knows better than most ,secrets have a way of getting out
they have a way of getting exposed when we least expect them
he says tell it to mom , she is the one hiding it
she says he can talk to her

she kisses him
he wonders what that was for
she says for being the most wonderful thoughtful perfect husband in the world
he says she has been overly affectionate lately
she says you are suspicious of me, because you assume something is wrong, you are right
when she thought she lost johnny
changed everything , made her realize she doesnt want a day to go by without telling him how
much she loves him.

******************************************

Skye's Spoiler Report - Monday, January 9

Ej motions for Will to come in
he says you have my attention
Will says you know what I'm talking about
Ej says I can assure you , I do not
Will says yeah you are right because
scum like you must have hundreds of secrets , well im going to be a little bit more specific with you
im talking about what you did with my mother
Ej says maybe we should go into the living room and talk about this in private
Will says privacy is a good idea
They go into the living room and Will says I'm sure you are not going to want anyone else hearing what I have to say.

Ej pours himself a drink
Will says ok,
if you don't want everyone in Salem including your wife to know what you did , you will give me what I want
Ej says enlighten me
Will says fine, ill tell you and your whole smug demeanour will be gone
do you remember when johnny was missing , so do I, when that happened
i saw you and my mom in this room
Ej says whats so scandalous about that?
Will says you were having sex, while the whole city was out searching for your son, you were cheating on your wife with my mom
Ej says really
Will says don't deny this, i saw you with my own eyes
so you will help me leave Salem or i promise you i will tell everyone what you did

Ej says i fund your little adventure and in return you keep your mouth shut, is that what you are suggesting ?
Will says you must be slow, yes money for silence, i would have thought a guy like you would be familiar with that kind of an arrangement

Ej says im quite impressed
you have grown a spine in the last few years
Will says you dont want to listen to me, ok, i dont care
i will get out of this town eventually
but you , i will ruin your life
your wife will leave you , you will lose the election for mayor and when rafe finds out that you had sex with his wife, you will be as good as dead
Will says , we both know , i'm holding all the cards here
Ej sits down and takes a cigar out
he sets his drink on the coffee table and Will picks it up and drinks it
he says Why dont you give me what I want and I will leave you alone
Ej says what does your mother say about this encounter you claim you witnessed
will says i havent told her yet
because i cant stand being in the same
room as her , let alone have a conversation with her
Ej says so im assuming she is one of the reason you are leaving town
Will says she is a reason
but that doesnt matter, what matters is whether or not we have a deal
Ej lights his cigar and says
i have to commend you
a blackmail achievement at your age
i suppose to a certain degree it must come naturally
Will says don't
Ej says however you are not the one holding all the cards dear boy
will says really?
Ej says you will do well to remember
that I know something about you
something that you would not want to be made public
Ej says I have always seen a little bit of myself in you , you know troubled young man, very angry at the world
will says i am nothing like you
Ej says we both had a difficult upbringing , a lot of mistakes were made
Will says everybody makes mistakes
Ej says but not everybody gets caught
and you got caught
Will says what the hell aer you talking about
Ej says I don't know,,, what could i know ,,it is something that could send you to prison for the rest of your life
Ej says i can see the headlines now Horton scandal , your
whole family would melt wouldnt they?
You the precious one, the anointed one
in jail,,,eh?
your mother would be such a mess
although maybe that would be a benefit eh?a fitting punishment
will says I have no idea what you are talking about
Ej says really, I'd be lying if i didnt say
that hurts my feelings a little bit
you don't remember it?
It was one of the most important moments of my life
Will says you got nothing
i know you got nothing i know you are bluffing, too bad it didnt work
he smacks Ej's arm and says nice to know you chap
Will starts to leave
Ej says am i bluffing when i say i know it was not your father who shot me
you already know that don't you
because it was you
you tried to kill me

Ej says you thought you could get away with murder didnt you or attempted murder
Will says my dad shot you , not me
EJ says you know after years of denying that to yourself, maybe you really cant remember
but i can assure you , i can remember that day very clearly
Will says you are delusional
Ej says for a very long time , i couldnt
i really couldnt understand why your father did that
but then i had children off my own and i understood exactly what it was to want to protect your children, what ever the cost
Will says if it was me , why would you keep it to yourself all this time
why didnt you send me to prison when you had the chance
Ej says i have something that you lack
patience
when i get some info i weigh it
i look for the right opportunity and i bide my time
you should take something from that
Will says how to be an manipulative
bastard like you
Ej says the next time you try and pull something like this, esp. To a Dimera
you better make sure they dont have any secrets on you

EJ says I'm sure
the toll of killing an innocent
man has taken a toll on your psyche
Will says an innocent man?
Ej laughs and says maybe not
will says my only regret is that i didnt get the job done the first time
Ej says is that a threat?
Will says
this time ill aim a little bit higher
he aims at his head with his hands held like he is holding a gun
Ej says i really dont think you are in the position to be making such bold statements
Will says
here call the cops, i dont care
Ej says yes you do
you care a lot, your life is very challenging you dont need me to bring you to court , to bring all that emotional turmoil into your life
you are very
confused mixed up emotionally
have you spoken to your grandmother
it would be good if you share you deepest darkest secrets with the world
thats something that can be arranged
Will says you wouldnt do that
Ej says I would
Will says you sick son of a bitch
Ej says the name calling has got to stop
i think we have a new appreciation and understanding for each other
Will says no one is going to believe you
you are scum
EJ says i hear prison is not a very nice place, particularly for a man of your disposition
are you sure you want to play this game
will says ok
i won't tell anyone you had sex with my mother
you have my word
EJ says im not a very forgiving man
an apology isnt nearly enough
you need to be taught a lesson for what
you just did and i know just the thing
Ej says did you ever hear the saying
you keep you friends close and your enemies closer
you are going to be close to me
you are going to assist me
Will says you have tons of minions to order around
EJ says you are an upstanding young man , you,are so innocent , nobody is going to suspect you
and if you want to stay a free man
if you want to keep yourself out of jail
you are going to do everything I ask you to do
welcome to your worse nightmare William, i own you.


jack out in the square talking on the phone
watches jen and dan sitting together says what the hell
he runs and gets a newspaper,
and eavesdrops
jen says i know we are not seeing each other anymore
but i care about you a lot and you will never be a burden to me
Dan says thank you but im a big boy i can take care of this my self
she says you had a stroke you may never be able to operate again
if that is not a reason to lean on a friend, i dont know what is you lost a career that you love its ok to feel something,,, talk to me
im a good friend
you gave me the confidence
im so happy working for abe right now
i wan the same for you
you can do anything you want
let me help you the way you helped me
jack sneezed
jen sees him and says are you kidding me
jen says jack what are you doing here
he says he was curious when he saw them holding hands
dan says it was innocent
jack says he knows that now
tells him he is sorry for what he is going through
he knows whats its like when life throws
a curve ball
dan says you were held by terrorists i have tremors
jack says its not so different when he got back he had to make some changes he had to figure it out out and he will too
he will look back at this , its a dot in the bigger picture
you will see that it led you to something you never would have imagined
Dan says i guess everything happens for a reason
jack says you dont have to believe me , my life is a mess
jen tells him he is doing alright
jacks says he hit a lot of road bumps and she has helped him
if she wants to help you let her
jen says you are being reasonable about all this
jack says after watching the 2 of them and seeing the concern they have for each other, the
3 of them cant go on this way
go on like this
fighting over which one of us is right for you,i can see now how much this hurts all of us
Jennifer still loves you
she wants to be your friend you need a friend you want her to be a friend, you should let her
she says i agree with jack, but this is
between me and Daniel
Jack says
how can we pretend this is real
dan you may think you took yourself out of the equation but as long as jen has feelings for you,,,you are still in it
we should put an end to this
jack says he is taking himself out of the equation ,
Dan tells him not to do that
jack says its best thing for all of them esp Jennifer
he is taking the pressure off, she know longer has to chose
dan says he understands where he is coming from, wasnt easy but he did it
he tells jen he loves her very much but sometimes you got to walk away
she tells them they are both amazing men and she would never do anything to hurt either one of them
dan says she made his life better, showed him he can love again
Jack says see how amazing you are you have 2 men fighting over you
jen says and now i lost you both
jack says she couldnt lose him if she tried
jen says it sounds final
jack says nothing is final
he will always love her,she is his
wife, mother of his children
but there will always be a part of him
that will wonder if she is still in love with him, points to dan
wait take some time ,so you can figure it out
jen says we should have seen this coming what were we thinking
jack says i thought, i could win over the girl, but Dan is a stand up guy
Dan says he feels the same about Jack
jen says i am still as confused as i was to begin with
jack says you need time you need space
you dont need the 2 of us
i hate backing off but it is for the best
jen says were do we go from here
what do we do now
jack says we need to move on with our lives and get back to normal
jen says i dont know what is normal anymore
he says i want my family back but
pressuring you like this isnt going to solve anything
dan kisses jen and leaves
jen says so
jack says so
she says its getting late i should get home
he says goodnight
she says good night
no kiss goodnight for jack

Bo and Hope in bed
he says he was thinking about the session with marlena
and he says its a lot more difficult than he thought it wound be the things that came up he though they worked threw those things more or less , but they havent
what if with marlenas help things dont get better

Bo says
we are a stronger now than we ever were
what if going through this tears us apart again
Hope says if we dont talk about it we will never heal
bo says i dont want to lose you because of choices i made a long time
ago
she says i dont want to lose you because we are scared to talk about those choices
if we want our marriage to survive we have to be committed to this, no other choice
Hope says the thought of losing you again
bo says im committed to making our marriage as strong as we can
seeing how much it hurt you is killing me
Hope says we cant just talk about out issues in therapy we need to be able to
take them home
losing zack was the most devastating thing i have ever been through
most of our problems step from loosing zack and the choices we made
bo says he is sorry he let Chelsea drive that night,
she says you didnt trust me to tell me the truth that night
just like you didnt trust me when ciarra was kidnapped or when carly came back
Bo says we will get through that
i promise you i wont ever lie to you again
she says i want to believe that
im afraid to trust you with my whole heart
there is always a small seed of doubt in the back of my mind
he knew the day he met her he wanted to change and she helped him , deep inside , he is still that kid, scared, has trouble relying on people is still there
he knows he can rely on her, she is his
life partner.

Hope says i have faith in us
i know im not perfect plenty to work on
he says sure do
just kidding
you are perfect
she says thats better
we can make it through this we can
make it through anything as long as we are together

Bo and Hope break in to the pub

they dance

Hope says she believes in her heart the therapy is good for them
he says i will do what ever it takes as long as he is with her
she says just remember that what when therapy gets hard

Hope says you always know the right thing to say
Bo says we made it through so much shipwrecks,Stefano Dimera
Sean Ds teen age years

Hope says i feel its destiny
Brady says i feel that way when ever im with you.

she is nervous and is sorry she cant be with him for interviews today
she is so proud of him
liquidating his company to pay back the people
he hates how his money problems have affected her
she says she is working and he will be working soon enough
the important thing is he is free and he is the same honourable man he always was
and she says how lucky i am to have you at home,making me breakfast in bed and watering the plants
and who is full of energy at the end of the day
he says you are making me sound like some kind of a boy toy
she says ill check with you in about 12 hours
she has to get ready for work
and she hopes Brady leaves Titan to join him
he says he cant help wonder how vic is going to react

Brady tells Vic about his dad rebuilding Basic Black
Maggie says she thinks its wonderful what john is doing
vic says indeed, if anyone can make a successful comeback, its john

Brady tells Vic he wants to help his dad rebuild his company
vic thinks he needs money to help
brady says he is going to take a hands on approach
he has decided to go work with is dad
which means he is leaving Titan

chad tells Abigail that he and Melanie never hooked up when he was going with her
she thinks they are lying to her
chad leaves and Melanie stays to try and get through to Abigail
mel tells Abigail she hates how things are between them
it isnt her fault her and chad broke up
she didnt know things were going badly for her and chad before she told her and what about the guy she has a crush on

Abigail says whatever, at least i know the real reason why things with her and chad werent working out
mel says you cant blame me for that
i didnt want to have feelings for chad , didnt want anything to come between us
Abigail says its too late for us, we are not best friends anymore

john tells marlena he is glad him and Brady are close again, hated the distance between them , he knows
he left him high and dry when he left salem
marlena tells him he was fighting to get on his feet, took every bit of strength he had
john says bottom line was he needed me and i wasnt there for him

marlena tells him he was afraid brady was going to run it off the road
john says for good reason
holding Vivian prisoner, stealing Titan from victor
starting a war with the Dimeras
marlena says that was when he shut you out,now you are back , ive seen a very big change in him already havent you
john says i could take a little credit for that , but i think a lot of it goes to madison james

she yes yes i suppose you are right but you have always given him love and support and now he is in a place where he can recognize that
you are so lucky
you got a 2nd chance to create the kind of relationship you have always wanted with your son


Vic says you cant leave titan i forbid it
i admire for you for wanting to help john
but Titan is your birthright

you took the reins from me and went to a great deal of trouble to do it
you are the ceo
you cant walk out on the family business

brady says you and my dad built Bella magazine together, to honour my mother for my sake
he is my Dad, i need to help him right now
vic says how can you go from running a multinational , multibillion dollar corporation to running a start up that doesnt have a dime to its name
brady says i dont need you to understand , i need you to accept my decision
vic says i thought all of your foolishness was behind you and now this
i believe in you but look at the mess he made of basic black the first time around and look at the hit he has taken to his reputation, you know how hard it is to do a start up in this economy , its practically impossible , you go down that road you are going to end up living in a box under a bridge
brady says his decision is final, leaving Titan and going to go your with my father
vic says then you are a fool

Big white sectional couch in the middle of Salem square

Abigail thinks she jumped in bed with him already
and she thinks she told chad that she was interested in someone else
she remembers how she did this to Stefanie and Phillip oh and Nathen too
when Stephanie heard they were friends she warned her
but she defended her because that is what friends do
but i am an idiot and you are a selfish bitch

john tells marlena that maybe she and sami can patch things up too since he and brady did it
marlena says yeah i would like to have that happen between sami and me but its more complicated than that
its a thing between girls and moms holding a grudge business going on
i cant blame her
john says i love Samantha, i raised her ,i know her and i know she blames me for the grief i brought to the family when johnny went missing
but i have been found innocent so she doesnt have any reason to continue being so damn disrespectful to you or to us
marlena says over the years i have hurt her a lot
john says we both have but we loved her a lot, sometimes
more than she loves herself

Brady says i stole it and i was wrong
im not only resigning as ceo of Titan , im giving back all the shares of the company
Titan is now yours grandad
vic says he wasnt expecting that or him washing his hands of him
brady says he loves him and the time has come to move on
has to learn what he needs from his father
he was a real bastard there for awhile
hopes going to work for his father will make him more like him
he wants to be like his dad
vic says you couldnt learn any integrity from me, its over rated anyway
brady says he wants to earn it not have it handed to him
Vic says our legacy is not our names in lights, its knowing that
those that come after us will be safe and secure
brady says thats your legacy not mine
i want to earn my place in this world
im walking in your footsteps

sonny says did you hook up with mel when you were dating my cousin

abi says i didnt act on them feelings
she didnt go after her best friends girlfriend
look me in the eyes and tell me nothing happened between the 2 of you when we were together
mel thinks about the other kisses
Abigail says just what i thought
some best friend you turned out to be huh
she leaves
mel cries

vic tells brady he is making a mistake
maggie says when she hears Brady say
he wants to follow his heart and be his own person , not only do i think what he is doing is right
i also think he sounded more like his mother
she was strong,and passionate and caring
vic says and stubborn
maggie says Isabella loved john more than anything think of how happy she would be knowing her husband and her son were working together
Vic says Maggie is right
your mother would be proud
and as much as it hurts to admit it , im proud of you too

At the university
marlena finds an upset Abigail and tells her to come in to the office to talk

Mel goes to talk to chad at the square
tells chad Abigail hates her and she will never forgive her for being with him
she is a traitor to her
he says she will get over it
he thinks they would have broken up sooner or later
she says but not because of me, she was my best friend
she starts crying says she ruined all that
i lost my best friend and i never wanted it to happen
he says she will forgive her
she thinks she hurt her too much and she cant be with him
ever

Vic says if anyone can help john get basic black on its feet again its him
brady says that means alot to him
he hugs vic and says he has to tell his dad the news
madison stays behind
vic tells her he has to discuss her future and bradys place in it

in marlenas office
Abigail says she cant believe her boyfriend and best friend were together behind her back
marlena says maybe it didnt happen
they told you they didnt cheat so maybe they didnt
give them the benefit of the doubt
they both really care about you
they dont want to have happiness at your expense
you feel betrayed
maybe its true what they are saying


brady talks to john and the pub
he tells him he will be working with him,they are partners
john says thats a dream come true
brady says for me too

madison says you dont approve of my relationship with brady?
Vic says he is glad she stood by Brady, smart and loyal, we need to discuss mad worlds future
now that brady is leaving
going to have to bring in a new ceo
phillip doesnt want it, wants to have time to parent his son
only 1 person who can take bradys place at Titan and thats her

Abigail tells marlena that her friends betrayal hurts her more than chads
marlena says maybe they did not mean to hurt you
look at your dad he never meant to hurt her or her mother but he did
maybe the same thing is true of her friend and maybe she can find a way to forgive her friend
Abigail says no i can never forgive her , our friendship is over

chad tells melanie he knows she is upset
he feels bad but them being apart isnt going to help anyone
she says this is wrong
he says just guilt talking
she says
i use to do whatever i wanted i didnt care who it hurt, if i chose you over abigail
im going to go right back to that girl so sorry i cant be with you
she leaves


john says he went through hell because of stefano dimera
in the end he gave me a great gift
i got my son back

madison says you want me to be ceo of titan
vic says why not, he has been
keeping an eye on her, strong and almost as savvy as him and brady put together
how she took mad world in to a global franchise wonders what she could do with titan
she says she will have to give up mad world
he says she will still be overseeing mad world
she says i dont know what to say

Will says how, i doubt if abe wil hand his computer to me
Ej says you are quite right, i asked you to do this because i thought you could be a little bit creative,

you can use your creative little mind to get out of it
Will says i know what you want me to do
you want me to steal the files

Will says it was a big deal to me,he trusted me and i used that to get the information that i wanted from him

Ej says thats politics my boy
will says no its not its blackmail
Ej says im surprised you are complaining because thats exactly what you tried to do to me
Will says whatever
Ej says why dont you think of our arrangement as an apology
for shooting me in the back all those years ago
all these little tasks that im giving you , you can think of it as
your gift to me so that i keep my mouth shut about that and your other questionable behaviour
Will says so what do you want
Ej says thats hardly the kind of attitude i would expect from somebody in your position
i think you are getting a little bit of a
kick out of all these errands
Will says why would you think that
ej says cuz i was your age once , eager to prove myself
to be a man, be honest with me when you connected that flash drive to abes computer and you were praying that you didnt get caught , didnt you feel a little bit of a rush
didnt your heart beat a little bit faster
didnt you feel right in the moment

Hope asked her what was she going to do

Ej says where would the fun be in that

he says yes that key is for the box but
i cant allow you access to the box

Ej says he is working for me,, my dear, hes the newest member of my campaign team
she says you are kidding
tell me you are kidding
she goes to Will and says you are not working for EJ
Ej says i dont know why you find this so troubling, he is capable of being employed and unlike you he is very industrious
she says oh shut up Ej
Ej says why are you so upset
i had an opening in my campaign and i found somebody perfect to fill it
she says yeah right and that perfect person to work for you is Will?
Ej says he is young, he is capable ,he is smart and he has incredible tenacity
She says i dont need to talk to you about my son
he needs a reality check
if he thinks im going to let him get involved with you or your ridiculous campaign for mayor
Ej says he is a little old for a time out
she says you dont tell me how to parent my kids
Will says did you say you are not going to let me?
She says you cannot be serious about this , im not the only one who sees how wrong this is
Will says whats so wrong about it
Ej is watching them talk
she says if you need me to tell you there are consequences to getting involved with the Dimeras
Will says you would be the expert on that wouldnt you
sami says ok we are not having this conversation here, lets get out of here, she grabs his arm
Will says no no and dont touch me again

nic says alright if you dont give me my phone , you are going to find yourself getting reception in a very bad place , i dont know whats going on with you but
you do not want to mess with me
Jen says do you think im scared of you
nic says yes , why did you call me a thief
jen says dont pretend you dont know what im talking about cuz your fingerprints are all over this yours and Ejs
you knew abes plan for new jobs in salem and some how you stole his research
you manged to get EJ on tv and make it look like this whole thing was his idea
nic says ej was on tv?
Jen says stop acting like you dont know what im talking about cuz you will regret it
you are so smart
cuz you tweaked a few details, so you would have plausible deniability
nic says we didnt steal anything from abe, there is no secret people need new jobs in this town
that plan ej laid out is 100 percent his
abe has been in office for 3 years
and we are just now seeing a new job plan
maybe you stole from us

The bank tells hope and bo he can not open the box
or tell them anything other than the other owner is alive



dan asks jack why he wanted to buy him a beer
jack says i thought you could use it
dan is reading up on drugs to treat his condition
his hand shakes a lot as he is holding the paper
dan wants to talk about jack
i am not the only one dealing with a life altering medical condition
jack says ptsd, what can i say its a lot of F...U...N
Dan says anymore episodes?
Jack says no i think i got a handle on it , if you
want to fix anything, got to recognize that something needs to be fixed
talking to marlena , wants him to get involved with a
support group
dan says thats good
you got a family and its important for you to know that what you are living with is manageable
you can have a life that you want
jack says there is a fix out there for you too ,got to track it down

Jen says thats your defence,you had it first
2 seconds ago, you said you had no idea what it was i was talking about
nic say i dont have to explain myself to you
jen says cuz you cant
nic says you are the one running around here screaming that we stole from Abe
you dont think we are capable of coming up with our own initiatives?
Jen says no, you dont want whats best for salem, just want to make sure Abe doesnt have a plan
the only thing you and Ej have proven is you are not worthy
nic says you are taking this personally
because you feel bad cuz you made a mistake and abe got
caught with his pants down
you made a very big mistake and you have no one to blame but yourself
jen says no i didnt make any mistakes
nic says im sorry , your
track record proves that you are not very good at making decisive choices
everybody knows that you couldnt chose between jack and daniel
and you lost them both just like you lost this election to EJ

Sami says you want to stay here
will says you can not tell me who i can and who i can not work for
she says this isnt some job at the mall
he says oh i know
she says are you forgetting everything he has done to us to our whole family?
Will says i could ask you the same thing
she says my relationship with EJ was a mistake , a million mistakes and you already know
Will says this isnt personal its a job
sami says think about what Ej did to rafe , never mind everybody else
rafe almost lost his life because of ej
how do you think rafe is going to feel
when he finds out you wanted to work for EJ
Will says how do you think rafe is going to feel
Ej says i think rafe will be pleased that William has been able to put the past behind him
sami says stop talking Ej stop it
Ej says i think he will be able to see there is something valuable that can be learned from that
maybe there is a lesson that we can all take away from it.
She says the only lesson he will learn from you is how to be a criminal and i want more for my sons future than that
ej says will is going to be exposed to a full blown political campaign this is an opportunity for him to develop and hone skills
that will last him a life time , do you have any idea how many people would kill for the opportunity that im just giving him
she says its a trap
she looks at Will and says and you dont see that
thats what scares me the most
Will you are smarter than that
i know it
he says i made my decision and when i explain why you will understand

he says why would you bring her up
she says im tying to understand whats going on here
he says nothing
she says you have been angry since you broke up with her
havent been acting yourself
maybe you miss her more than you thought you would

dan says it was my idea
she says you are an idiot
i was going to give some credit for seeing the light
she walks off





jack and jen sit on white couch
she says it isnt enough they stole the jobs program
its that she wont own up to it
how can she deny it
he says thats the way politics is played, you lie and deny
and you will laugh all your way into office
jen says i hate it
he says i know,you made me hate it too
i though this job would be perfect for you
you are a decent person, better than most
you want to change the way the game is played , bully for you
not a pushover
you are ready to throw down in public with the opposition
she says thank you for showing up when you did you and daniel
you showed up at the same ti e
jack says yeah lucky for nicole
jen looks over at dan
jack tells her dan is thinking about leaving town

sami says alright will i wont try and change your mind
he says good
she says there are some things you havent thought through
if you chose to associate with the dimeras , what are people going to think
think that you have the same values as the dimeras

he says values
you are going to talk to me about values ,,,,,you ?
She says im your mother
i made a lot of mistakes in my life and i dont want to see you make a mistake that you will regret for the rest of your life
he says im not
she says i know you cant see it,you have to trust me, i know what EJ is capable of
he can do anything , he can convince anyone of anything to get what he wants
will says you think he is using me
she says i dont know what his end game is
he doesnt have your heart or your conscience , the things i have seen ej do to people
will says i know whatn he is capable of doing
she says i know you do
please just think about this
he opens the doors and hollers for Ej
Ej comes in and Will says i think we are done here, my mom is leaving


While Bo was looking of the list of criminals he notices stefanos name isnt on the list

dan asks jen if she is ok
jen thanks him for what he did today
jack just told me you are thinking about leaving town thats not true is it?

Will flops down in a chair and puts his feet up on the coffee table
Ej sits in the other chair and says everything ok?

Abe says his office is behind this program
a mayors top priority is the safety of his citizens
lexi says abe needs to win before my brother hijacks this election away from him

ej says i can find much more enjoyable ways to start the day than talking about Will
she says tell me why you hired him and we will move on to those more enjoyable ways
he starts kissing her
she says i know what you are doing and its not going to work, why dont you want to tell me
he says are you still talking
he kisses her again

Marelana asks Will if he was meeting somebody here
Will says i have a full day
they talk about their word game
she asks him if he was still thinking about leaving salem
he says no im going to stay
she says now you can find some time to talk to your mom
he says how can i bring up the subject, hey i just happened to walk in on you and Ej sleeping together, but there wasnt any sleeping going on

he is laying there with his eyes closed
she says you arent really asking me to believe that it was a coincidence are you?
He says nothing

Mar tells Will she understand his anger
but the only person hurting is you
you have to get past this anger, the only way to do it is to confront your mother, let her explain, let her apologize to you
he says there is nothing that will make me forgive her
she says she is your mother and she is my daughter
he says a daughter that has blamed you for everything that has gone wrong in her life
she has never given you a chance so why should i give her one

Ej says Will is a very smart kid and he needed a job thats it

carrie says good thing we are married to people who are employed
he says hello
Sami smiles awkwardly

abe says im as frustrated of ej s tricks as you are
we have to kick this campaign into over drive, i
have a few tricks up my sleeve
there is no way EJ can lower the crime rate in salem
Hope says esp when his speciality is raising it
abe says as long as he has been mayor he wanted to launch this anti crime program but my hands are tied with budget
constraints
we need bodies on the street to wage this fight
he was able to move money from one line item on the budget towards crime reduction
he is authorizing hope and bo to hire who ever they need to clean up salem

nic say s the point isnt whether or not jennifer can get the best of me in a cat fight the point is about you not sharing information with m e , i didnt even know you went on tv about this jobs plan
he says you were taking the day off at the spa
she says now i know why
you wanted me out of the way when everything went down
i should be so furious with you
he says but you are not and you had a lot of fun kicking ass
he says you know your problem , you think too much
i told you that there would be times during this campaign it would be in your best interest to not know whats going on and this is one of those times
im going to take a shower,, he gets out of bed
she gets her phone and calls someone and says
hi i need some personal files on Ej
yes of course he authorized it, we were just talking about it

Will says why should i give my mom a chance she never gave anyone a chance esp you
Mar says thats not so
Will says ever since you came back , shes has been treating you like crap and shes tried to turn everyone against you
i dont know how you can love her
Mar says i love her with my whole heart
i love her cuz she is my daughter
and she feels the same about you

sami tells rafe and carrie how she was working at mad world and had no office, i dont think they are listening to her , so she says she should get back to work
rafe thanks her for stopping by

Abe thanks Bo and Hope for getting the program up an running
Abe says the criminals in Salem will be quaking in their boots when they find out they are in charge of this task force
Lexi says my brother among them
Hope says this must be hard hoping and praying Ej and stefano will change
lexi says i wish i was more like my brother and father
i could predict their tricks and somehow stop them
Abe says ill make sure this latest dirty trick is his last
Lexi and Abe leave

mar tells Will she is as much to blame for not healing this relationship as his mother was
we just let our anger and hurt fester too long
thats why you have to talk to her now
he says i dont think i can do that
she says it will make things so much easier
Ej and Nicole walk in
Ej tells Will , he thought they were meeting at the entrance,,are you ready to get to work
Marlena says whats going on here?

Will says sorry i was waiting at the entrance but i ran in to my grandmother
Ej says not a problem you know how i feel about family
marlena , its lovely to see you
she jumps up and says im hoping there is a misunderstanding here
Ej says William works for me , he is my new campaign intern,, he is a very valuable member of the team

Hope meets with rafe and carrie at the pub
they talk about the wanted criminals in salem
and they want to hire them to get the job done
they agree to take the job
carrie isnt too happy about it though


mar says if you like to work on a campaign , i can talk to Abe for you
Will says he didnt have any openings
Ej says i was very happy o help him out
Mar says i was speaking to Will, if you dont mind
Ej says i was merely explaining
mar says you can merely be quiet
ej says to nicole sweetheart take a seat
he sits her down at the table
mar says im sorry we are having a private conversation
you werent invited to join us
Ej says can i look at the menu, im famished
mar says you and me Will alone
Ej says go ahead, its going to take me awhile to pick out something to eat, we can talk when you are finished
mar says i guess he got his manners from his father
they walk away from nicole and ej
nic says to ej,, grandma isnt too happy
ej says well that is her problem
now whats good for breakfast



Will tells his grandma , working for Ej is just a job ,its cool it has perks
she says what kind of perks
concert tickets and
she says you are working for a Dimera
he says i done it before i worked for stefano and nothing happened
she says i will call Abe
he says i am fine , i dont mean to be rude but i have to work cant talk right now
be ready,,,my word for the win

Ej tells Will to run over to the place he sent him to the other day they have posters for him and he can take them to the campaign headquarters
thank you
Ej tells Nic ,, he is a good lad
Will runs off past lexi and abe
she tries to talk to him
they see ej and nicole eating
abe says you do have a pair of brass ones EJ, committing atrocities one day and enjoying
a meal in the square the next
EJ says im just having breakfast and hobnobbing with the locals , something i plan on doing a lot of when im elected
i have no idea what you are talking about
Abe says how about hacking , theft, plagiarism?
Lexi says compared to blackmail and assault and murder that probably seems like nothing to you , right EJ
Abe says i know you stole my jobs plan
Ej says instead of spinning these theories
why dont you spend time preparing for the debates
abe says you are not going to get away with this
not only will you lose the election you are going to believing proof of that old saying crime doesnt pay
not while im in charge






lexi says every time, i think you cant sink any lower you find yet a deeper cesspool to swim in
ej says i dont know what you are talking about
lexi says im putting you both on notice
im calling the debate moderator to tell her theres a good chance that your campaign would most likely steal the questions in advance
nic says you must feel insecure about abes reelection chances to go to such lengths
nic says ej knows what the people want and the people want EJ
abe says well they wont once they know the truth
smoke and mirrors wont last forever
Ej says they dont need to last forever just until the election

marlena runs in to sami at the square
sami says she is busy working
mar says you are working for kate
sami says you have a problem with that
you have been after me to get a job since i was 16
now i have a career and that isnt enough for you
mar says i want to talk about will
his employment choices, are you aware he is now working for ej
Sami says i just found out about it
mar says you dont seem very concerned
have your feelings for ej changed?
Sami says of course not i despise Ej
i did try to talk him out of working for Ej, but he is not listening to me
mar says i wish you would try talking to him again
Will needs his mother more than anything
sami says im surprised of this, coming from you
where were you when i needed you


Lexi says you know ej in a few rare occasions i glimpsed a real human being in side of you , i must have been imagining it
you dont have a soul
you are an expensive empty suit
Ej says im sorry, its politics
you cant take this too personally
the other day abe and i were standing there having a chuckle
lexi?

Abe says thats the last chuckle we will have together
lets go lexi
they leave
ej takes out his phone
nic asks him if he is alright
he says im fine no text from Will, how long does it take to pick up some bloody posters
nic says the look on marleans face when she found out will was working for you was priceless
wish i could se ethe look on samis face , she must know by now
ej says i know what you are doing iand m not answering any questions about Will so just drop it

She says cuz you are a Dimera thats the

he says you probably still think i have some secret agenda to destroy you and your husband
she says not too secret would you say
he offers her a seat
she sits and says
must have really irked you when john was found to be innocent
i know you and stefano worked so hard to frame him , there went your class action suit and your bid for mayor
he really made a fool of you, so now you are paying him back by going after Will
he says why do you think this is all about you?
my father hasnt thought about you or john in years
she says you made it about me when you went after Will
so if you want to target somebody in my family
target me

nic meets Will at the square
she says i want to officially welcome you to the team
he say im excited to get started
she says get started are you kidding i have heard you have been a tremendous help to the team
he says i just do what im told
she says we are a wonderful
fully dedicated to winning this election we will do what ever it takes and i trust you feel the same ?
He says i want whats best for Salem
she says yeah lets get down to it
i would like to start with a few important things

Ej says where is all this hostility coming from
do you have problems at home?
Is John not satisfying your needs?
she says you never disappoint do you EJ?
He laughs and says look, you came here to get me to talk, and frankly, im concerned about you, you seem very confused and you are angry and thats not good for your health my dear
she says well if you keep going after Will , the concern will be for your health
he says but there isnt anything i can do about that
he works for my campaign and if you have an issue with that i suggest you take it up with him
she says i did that but it seems you cracked the code on tying to keep a teenager loyal
Ej says hmm?
She says you bought him a new car
he says did you see the car he was driving?
He represents the campaign cant have him driving around in Samanthas old bloody mini van
she says i dont understand why you are trying to buy him off
he says i didnt initiate this ,Will came to me
she says you could have turned him down , why the hell didnt you?
Ej says im telling you the truth this is not some conspiracy theory
she says im wondering why i should believe you
he could have worked for almost any company in town
yet he chose to work for somebody who is so corrupt , somebody he just intensely dislikes , why would he do that?
He says im going to ignore all these little insults and say that i dont know.. when he turned up at my door
i was just as surprised as you , then i realized the truth of the matter

nic tells Will i want to talk to you about your mother
sami and i have a very complicated history we dont get along
he says you want to claw each other eyes out
she says you work for ej now which means you work for me , you have to keep family business at home
dont carry it to the office ,what happens behind closed doors stay behind closed doors
Will says he gets that

Marlena says oh please enlighten me
he says i thought it would be obvious , we are connected because
we are family
johnny and Sydney are his siblings
his grandmother is my step mother , you can deny it all you wish but we are connected
she says please dont pretend that you care about Will
he says i care about William very much always thought of him as a son
he may not have Dimera blood in him but he has been
and always will be part of this family

Abigail and Austin continue working
he says why dont i take you to dinner
she agrees

vic asks dan when does he leave
he says as soon as i can
maggie cries and hugs him she is going to miss him more than he knows
last few months with him in her life have been amazing
he says he is going to miss her too
tells vic to take care of maggie
they leave melanie and him alone
she cries some more
wonders what she is going to do with out him
he tells her to be strong
and call him if she has a problem
he may not be the best father but he loves being her father and that will never change
he loves her
she cries i love you too dad

Will asks Nicole what does she want
she says i need you to do something for me

Marlena says have you completely lost your mind
Will is not a member of your family
never was and never will be
he says obviously he feels connected to us though doesnt he?
Or he wouldnt be here
she says Will is working for you because you found a way to use his emotions , he is a very young confused man
he isnt working for you by choice
he is working for you because you want him to
he says what ever you have to tell yourself
but i know the real reason he is here
i give him something he doesnt get from the bradys and hortons
i treat him like a man and with respect
she says you treat him like a toy like a puppet
using him for your own amusement , but i will not let you destroy his life
i will see you and your father dead before i let that happen

Tomorrow...Bo and Hope
he figured out how to get to stefano

Madison and Sami
sami says never get on your bad side

gabi says to melanie
would you ever consider hooking up with chad

******************************************

Skye's Spoiler Report - Friday, January 20

At the spa
gabi and Melanie talk
Melanie is crying
gabi asks her why
she says her dad was taking time for himself
leaving town
she just found him now she is losing him
hugs

Chad comes to visit Stefano at the mansion ,having very bad hair day
he is looking around,
no one seems to be there
he picks up a cup of coffee beans and smells them
stefano comes in and says those are kona beans the others here from Jamaica is blue mountains and kope lowak are from Indonesia, they are very rare, best coffee beans in the word
my favourite
chad says why did you ask me here ?
Stef says i heard of your latest venture with sonny kiriakis
going to change the cheating heart to a coffee house
i would like to help you
i have a lot of connections and i know a lot of the right people
they will make sure you get all of you want of what you have in your hands and the price will be beyond anything, anybody could touch
chad says oh those right people
stef says i would like to invest
chad says why
stef says because you are my son and i
want you to succeed
chad says i dont want your help

kate and sami are at work looking at pics of chad and gabi
they say they are hot
sami says those 2 belong in a fashion magazine
i believe we found the faces to represent countess Ws youth line
kate says the best part of this is it will blow Madison James and her little company right out of the water

Bo and Hope at the pub
she is starring at the key, trying to figure out what their next move is
Hope agrees with him about stefano being the other owner
Bo says he isnt going to admit it to us
she says going to have to find a way to make him talk or
we will never find out the truth
thought about getting a search warrant for stefanos house see if they can find other key
he says they cant get a search warrant on speculation
she says i will try anything right now
even debated on whether to break in to stefanos house
Bo says we cant have that , have to keep this
operation on the up and up
we play by the rules more or less
she says what if we run out of options they might never find what we are looking for.
Madison is there and she takes a pic of hope with her phone and smiles at it

sami says what do you think of the slogan youth is served
kate likes the idea, she says
hiring you was one of the smartest things i done in years

Madison comes over to bo and hope and introduces herself
she wants to talk to Hope
about being a cop

stef says i knew you would react that way
but i want you to hear me out
to start a business at any time is difficult , but this day and age , they are ready to knock your head off right from the start
chad says i know that
stef says i know our relationship has been strained lately but
im still your father and its every fathers duty to see that their children reach their top potential
dont think about the name stefano Dimera being anywhere in the business , id be a silent partner
chad says and im the only one who will know where the money is coming form
stef says of course
chad says you dont care about some coffee house tell me
it is that you really want
stef says i just saw an opportunity for us to do something together that was positive
chad says a silent partner with connections doesnt sound positive
stef say this motive is very sincere
then we get together and work out a real relationship between a father and son
chad says all because you bought some beans
stef says you know there is more to it than that
chad says you have more money than god
this gesture is meaningless
stef says i never not once invested in something i didnt believe in and i believe in you
he says why cuz i have your genes
stef says no cuz you earned it ,you are never going to be able to cut me out of your life
i want this rift between us to heal
chad says and i all have to do is sit back and let you do all the work
stef says you are my son and i miss you
i dont apologize for that
i stay awake nights trying to think of a way so you could be back in my life
i came up with this plan so we could have a future together as a father and son

gabi and melanie talk some more about Daniel
gabi says this will be good for her father
hiking surfing , he will get a tan or get tanner
melanie cries that she doesnt know when the next time she will see her dad

kate says they have to sign them , book a studio , hire a photographer
she wants her to get right to it
sami tells kate to approach chad
kate says she can pull strings with chad
kate tell sami to talk to gabi , get her
signed contract with gabi this afternoon
if this campaign works she hopes to start a reconciliation between chad and stefano
if sami gets to know gabi better , she might find out what happened between her and Will

Hope says you want me to model for mad world?
Madison says when i look at you i think wow
Hope says thats out of the blue
mad says she has a great look
theres an essence about her
Hope says i love being a cop
Madison says what if you could do it all
be a cop, a mother and model
you done it before right
you know the ropes you would be a natural , her products are developed for real woman and she cant think of anyone who
fits the mold better than her
Hope says its not for me right now
madison says ok, and gives her , her card
call her if she changes her mind
she leaves
Hope says can you believe this
Bo says i can believe it, you dont get this kind of offer everyday

stef says i can be more than a father , i can be your
friend, a mentor
chad says you a mentor,,wow
stf says yes, i know
that you dont want anything to do with anything i do
i get that ,but to reject your family
that i can not take
you think you will never have regrets but the day will come
i will never give up on you my son
and i pray the day will come that you will not hate me for it

gabi and mel look at the pic from the photo shoot
gabi says i felt sexy
even chad had a good time
it was a good distraction for him since he broke up with abigail
she asks melanie would you ever consider hooking up with chad

chad says you arent shy about putting someone on the spot
stef asks him to stay for dinner
chad says i get you are being sincere when you are offering to help out with the coffee house
but i meant what i said, i want to do this on my own
stef says i understand and admire you for it
chad says as far as dinner goes i cant
instead of buying coffee for me you can buy a cup from me one of these days
stef says i would like that very much
he leaves
stefano seems sad

Bo tells Hope she is the most beautiful woman he has ever met inside and out
hope says madison is asking me to be someone im not anymore
bo says thats it
i frgured out how we get to Stefano

Madison is talking (dont show who she is talking to)
saying Kate and Countess W are more than just our competitors they are in our way the more they push, the harder we push back we have to stay ahead of them always , what else can we do
then they show Sami , she says i think we have done the most important thing ,putting someone on the inside of countess W. was genius and its already paying off
we are hitting kate where its going to hurt the most right in her ego
mad asks if she suspects her
sami says she is too busy patting herself on the back to see whats right in front of her face
staging those fights and timing them so she would walk right in
i didnt have to play surprised when she offered me the job
she was betting she was going to turn you against me
and use you to spill all mad worlds secrets and then she was going to use that against me
sami says she is running with it
she made the most of that information, she revised her entire line cause she wants to beat you to the shelves and all of its based on false dates i have fed her
mad says her strategy is to market towards the youth
Sami says she has completely forgotten about any other demographic
mad says good that way when we launch our youth campaign while still marketing to the over 30 crowd , we will attract all the clientele that she has ignored
im going to go with real woman
none of that glossy wannabe teenage angst crap
Sami says i just want to make sure that we are still focused on
everything at titan and making sure we cover our tracks
kate might have spies and bugs
mad says im sure she does but she is so sure shes ahead of her game she is going to let her guard down
she is going to relax and she is going to be the one twisting in the wind

mel says why would i want to hook up with chad
gabi says i see the way you look at him sometimes
mel says we are friends thats all

kate comes in and talks to gabi
wants to know if she spoke to sami
gabi says about what
kate says i guess you didnt
she wants her to text chad and tell him to meet them there

sami and Madison have drinks
sami says i didnt think i could be behind the scenes at countess W thought it was a dumb idea
never thought kate would want to hire me
mad thanks her for everything she did for her and her company
sami says when it gets tough she reminds herself there is an exit strategy in mind
madison says i will take care of you
sami says kate is going to hire some new inexperienced models
one of them is my sister law feel bad the plan is doomed to failure
mad says your sister in law will be ok but for kate it wont be pretty
they have a toast
sami says i cant believe i convinced kate to plan a whole campaign based on the idea of fresh new faces
mad says she really thought that was an original idea?
we are going to unroll our new campaign featuring fresh new faces of all ages
mad says kate will look like she is playing a real bad game of catch up
Sami wonders what she does now at Countess W
how does she mess things up more
mad says she can do what she wants to do
sami says i love my job , thinking of more ways to torment kate


chad asks melanie if she is ok
want to talk about it
he says he got a text from gabi kate wants to talk to him at the spa
mel says its probably about those hot pictures
they talk about their dads
he says his was so relentless wants to be a part of my if life, i dont know what to do right now
she says you are so lucky
you are not the only one having dad problems

Bo and Hope talk to some woman at the pub
she says how was that, has a phone in her hands and she leaves
Bo says you said the hardest part was getting stefano to talk to us
Hope says not anymore huh

Mel tells chad her dad is leaving
she cries about it
she doesnt know when he is coming back, never saw it coming
chad says its not forever
she names off all the people that left her
her mom, Max, dario
she feels left behind
he hugs her and says im still here
and your dad cant stay away for long
she says i shouldnt be doing this and she runs off

gabi asks kate what she wants to talk to them about
she says your future

bo and hope at the square
talk about stefano
Hope says hope he hasnt figured out what we are doing
he could be waiting for us to try something like this all along
bo says he doesnt know that we know about the safety deposit box and he doesnt know that we found the key
she says ill have faith when i see him walk through the arch
bo says well start singing cuz here he comes
stefano walks into the square

sami tells mad no one knows she is there and no one knows she is working for her
mad tells her she appreciates this is not easy stuff
corporate espionage thats not all fun and games
brady couldnt be told
no way he would agree with this
sami says she hates not telling rafe
madison thinks they can tell them now
since they were successful
sami wants more than anything is to see the look on kates face when she knows the truth
mad says done

kate tells gabi this photo session was to evaluate you and chad
she wants them to model for her

stef at the square
Hope says i cant believe it worked
bo walks over and says oh my goodness stefano dimera
stef remembers getting a call talking about his safety deposit box with A. Greyson
he has to get to the bank , problems with his box
bo says my goodness what are the odds of running into you here
stef says pretty high i assume
Hope says we were just talking about you and the safety deposit box you share with my grandmother
Stefano rolls his eyes

no interest in becoming one

chad thinks there must be something in it for her
he thinks she wants to get him back under his dads thumb

sonnys 2 friends go to get a drink and sonny says to Will
what do you think about Dustin
will says he seems like a good guy
are you asking if im interested in him ?
sonny says no for me, we hung out last weekend and i think i want to see him again
Will looks uncomfortable and says go for it
i could see the 2 of you together
sonny says can you put in a few good words for me
Will laughs and says yeah it will be a tough sell though
dating advice

sonny says im unfunny
Will says im thinking of you here
he lets out a big sigh

Jen leaves
dan talks to vic
he tells him he went above and beyond the god father thing and he gives him the pocket watch his dad gave him when he became his god father and he gave it to him (Dan)
and said you wanted to earn it , well you have
vic says its a nice watch
after he lost his parents and rebecca no place felt like home, but this place feels like home and he made him feel like he has a home and he thanks him for that
vic says just remember the whole point of an odyssey is to end up at home and this will always be your home

she isnt doing this for stefano
chad doesnt believe her
she says your father doesnt even know about this

kate says no i saw chemistry between the 2 of you
either i hire both of you or neither of you

mad makes brady swear not to say anything to anyone
sami never quit mad world she is still working for me , we staged a number for kates benefit
we had a feeling if kate saw us not getting along, she would try to steal sami from me
and we were right
you can never underestimate the sneakiness of kate
he says i know
she says she hired sami and coerced her into giving up mad world secrets
he says she just gave her misinformation
did it bother you that you are sinking to kates level and what you did was
unethical
she says all is fair in love and lipstick i was just protecting my company
he says why did you do that ,why did you tell me about this

bo and hope are in a waiting room
waiting for stefano to come out
Hope say she doesnt have a good feeling
she understands her gran helping to save ejs s life she would do that for anyone
but there is something more
its grans birthday today , maybe its a sign
today is going to be a big day for her and us

my dads company owns countess w
if i do this he will own me too and thats what kate is after, she is using you to put pressure on me
she says what was i thinking me a model
he tells her she is gorgeous, beautiful
she says she doesnt know that
will said he loved me but there was something about me that turned him off
and she thought if he saw the pictures , maybe he could see that
he was wrong about me

Sonnys friends talk about coming out to their parents
one guy said his mom already knew
he didnt figure it out till he was 15
his dad was great too
sonny says his parents were great too
one of the guys asked Will what happened when he came out to his parents
Will laughs

brady is mad she lied to him and put sami in a dangerous situation , do you
know about the history between sami and kate
kate had sami framed for murder
kate would bury sami, wipe her out and take her kids away from her and you sent sami into the wolfs den
mad says sami wanted to do it
he says of course she did she thinks she is invincible , the kiriakis family owns your company and now you
are playing games with the dimera family
the last time that these 2 familys went to war people almost died there were
real bullets and everything
she says she had no idea
he says i cant believe you did this
mad world was doing great
and now you do this
she says i dont care who kate is marred to , maybe i shouldnt have used sami
i didnt know
i would do anything to beat kate
this is personal to me

vic and dan have a drink
he wants want vic to look after melanie and maggie
he wishes he had found out sooner that maggie was his mother , they might have had more time to bond
vic says there is something i need to tell you about maggie being your mother....
Dan says what
vic says i knew that your leaving would devastate maggie
she come to love you very much
he says ill be back
vic leaves to check on the car
maggie , Melanie and jennifer
are there
maggie gives him a compass belonged to her father
and when he looks at it he can think of her when he is gone
he says ill call you , keep in touch
maggie cries
hugs him

brady asks what does she have against kate
she says we have crossed paths before and she probably doesnt remember, it was business stuff
he says and she made you mad enough
she says mad world is everything to me, im ensuring its survival , i should have told you from the beginning
but im being honest with you now
and i need you to forgive me

hope puts the key in the box
then stefano says you know before we open this box
you should ask your self
if your grandmother wanted anyone to know about the secret why did she go thru so much trouble to keep it hidden maybe she was trying to protect you or someone that you love, it looks to me like you are opening Pandoras box are you sure you want to do that ?

Chad tells gabi when he first met her he thought she was an amazing person
but she met Will
she is beautiful inside and out and thats why kate picked her
she thanks him
means alot to her that he said that

they say give it up Will
will says im
they says they have to run

they put him on the spot
will says they just assumed i was gay no big deal
sonny says no big deal

melanie cries some more saying good bye to Daniel
he promises her she will never lose him
maggie and jen watch

brady hates that she lied to him
she thought it was the best thing
and if she had any idea it was such a big deal she wouldnt have done it
he says he needs some time to digest what she has done and no more secrets
it was a terrible idea to put sami in there as a mole
she better get her out of there before someone gets hurt
she says we cant she is in too deep
he says this could blow up in everybodys face especially yours

will goes home
no one is there
he looks at a pic of him and sami
then he looks in the mirror
and spits at it

gabis says she didnt mean to guilt him she is fine not being a model
he says he hasnt seen her this excited about something in a long time
he doesnt care why kate is doing it
they could use the money
my new goal in life is to be a super model
kate comes in and says thank you
you made a wise decision


mad says no one will find out about sami
she looks over at abi and Quinn

******************************************

Skye's Spoiler Report - Tuesday, January 24

It is a new day in Salem

Hope and Bo at the pub
they talk about being at target practice
her dad and Julie come in

Carrie and Austin
in their hotel room
start to make out
Carrie tells Austin to stop she has a busy day at work and so does he

sami and rafe at home
she tells him she didnt really leave mad world
she is a spy ,,a mole
working at kates and letting her think she can trust me while reporting everything back to Madison , its great right ?
he says i hate it

Will comes in to the mansion and leaves an envelope for Ej
he starts to leave and Nicole stops him
she says im beginning to think you have been avoiding me since i told you i needed your help
he says he is busy with the campaign and school
she says helpful hint ,,,i suggest you make time for me

Ej is sitting out in the square
lexi walks by and he says hi Lexi good to see you
she tries to walk by him
he says lexi please , i was just hoping we could have a quick conversation about the campaign
she says there is nothing for us to discuss
he says i understand you are not very happy that im running against your husband i recognize you have to support him and not your brother
she says you are not going to make me feel guilty about that
he says no that is not my intention at all , once this stupid competition is behind us , somethings are going to be different either
im going to be mayor or abe is
lexi says abe is
Ej says but there are somethings that dont change
we are always going to be family
she says think again

Abe is at Jennifers house
she asks him if he meant it when he said that he wanted to play hardball with EJ
he says yes
jen says ej is doing exactly what we expected him to do
he has arranged to get the debate questions in advance
i have a way to stop him and ej will never see it coming


sami says all you going to say you hate it
rafe says what else is there to say
we renewed our vows ,we promised to be open and honest to each other about everything and you have been living a lie , we have been living a lie

Hope tells her dad and Julie that Stefano didnt deny he shared the safety deposit box with gran
he made her doubt that she wanted to know what was inside the box
she started questioning she might expose something that might hurt gran or the whole family
Julie tells her she is being careful which she has to be when stefano is involved

Ej says hey stop,,, Nicole is not here abes not here
can we have an honest conversation
she says honest , you were waiting for me , you know i come this way going to work every morning
he says i was waiting for you cuz i love you cuz i love my sister
im trying to bridge this gab between the 2 of us
she says you are so smug
you are thinking lexi will come around she will forgive me she always does
he says you came over at x-mas cuz you wanted to, cuz we are family
she says my real family is abe and theo, because with them its just about
love and trust and its always unconditional
he says father and i feel the same way
she says no you dont, with you guys its all about conditions and demands
ej says come on im really trying to change
she says even if you spent all your time and energy on trying to become the kind of man abe is
you will never succeed
he has the most amazing integrity, ethics and morals
you dont even know the meaning of those words

en tells abe she has a reporter friend who knows what Ej and Nicole are up to . They are working thru someone at the debate moderators office to get the questions in advance
Abe says why isnt your friend running the story
jen says cuz he knows Ej will claim plausible deniability cuz thats what Ej does , so
instead of printing a retraction and enduring public humiliation, he is warning me
i want to beat ej at his own game i want to get the questions in advance too all you have to do is say yes
abe says so this is whats its come to
jen says you said you might have to get your hands dirty
he says i meant being aggressive not cheating
jen says but Ej is already cheating
he says Ejs schemes doesnt work he will cover it up like he always does
jen says ej does that better than anyone
Abe says i know how much damage mayor Dimera would do to this city that i love,,,call your friend
jen says you are doing the right thing but its for the greater good
he says lexi cant know what we are doing
jen says we will keep it between you and me

Ej says you go ahead and compare me to your sainted husband
he is such a beacon of integrity and i am an utter disappointment
she says that sounds right
he says its an old cliche...but you cant chose your family
she says you crossed the line when you undermined my husband
you made me chose , you made me chose,,,she hits him in the chest
i chose my husband he is everything you are not and never will be ...
she walks away

Nic tells Will she wants to make sure we are on the same page
he says i dont know what you mean ,you run this whole campaign by yourself , im just a lowly intern , if you want some coffee i can get you that
she says we both know you do more than fetch coffee
i know that ej ordered you to break into abes computer and steal his job plans
we need to make sure EJ wins this election and
i need to know what is going on to with this campaign
whatever assignment you get , whatever it is , who ever its from you need to check in with me
he says are you asking me to be your spy
she says you catch on fast Will
always knew you were a bright kid

carrie says she is sorry but they are running late
he says i miss you
miss being with you
touching you
she says i know its crazy
all the work they have
he says if we dont make time for each other no one else will
time we made a date

sami says im not living a lie
rafe says you go to work for kate everyday telling her that you are loyal to her, all the time you are undermining her
she says this is kate , she has done a lot worse to a lot of people
he says so that makes it ok
she says kind of yes
you are not trying to see my side
he says i get why you didnt want to tell me
i dont know why you did it in the first place
she says cuz my boss told me to and im doing really well
he says you are excelling at this 9 to 5 of deceit and betrayal
she says police officers do it all the time under cover
he says we are talking about lipstick and perfume not life and death
seems like something Ej would do , not you

Julie tells Bo stef got what he wanted threw hope off balance
he says Hope will do everything she can to protect the memory of her grandmother and her family
she will find the right way to solve this mystery

Austin and Carrie try to find a day for their date
he tells her and rafe dont have much business she should be a little more flexible

Sami says you are comparing me to EJ
i dont think there is anything that you could say to me that could be more hurtful than that
he says im not trying to hurt you just
trying to get you to wake up
you convinced yourself that what you are doing is ok, you think its ok cuz you are doing it to
kate, someone who deserves it
she says dont condescend me
i have a pay cheque im bring in to support this family
mostly cuz you have a new career you are working on and thats fine but
you dont get to question me when i do what my boss tells me to do
he says i dont think that she thinks that
you should have to do this stuff
you are trying to find reason to justify it
she says you are wrong
he says oh really what about the candy wrapper they found in johnnys bed, he blamed it on Allie
you said lying is always wrong what if they found out about this how would you explain it

Will says im not comfortable with the direction this conversation is going
ej is not only the candidate he is my boss, so if you feel out of the loop with things
you should talk to him about that
she says very smart
but sometimes the candidate dont always look out for their own best interests thats why they need a team to look out for him, to protect him
he says you do a great job
she says if eJ gives you some future assignment it could end up hurting his chances , all im asking is for you to tell me whats going on in the campaign
she gives him a piece of paper
he says whats this
she says its the money i transferred into your bank account
and theres more where that came from
if i know that i can count on you
Ej comes home
he hollers from the foyer
is anybody home



jen says she hates doing this but ej leaves them no choice
she is going to call her reporter friend and get the questions , they will go over them and practice them , they will be well prepped, so that at the debate if ej thinks he has an advantage , he will be wrong because it will be neutralized
Abe says that wont be enough to level the playing field
i want an advantage over Ej the same way he wanted one over me
i have an idea

having the right questions is one thing we have to arrange for ej to have the wrong one
jen says he will be playing catchup through the whole debate and you will be wiping the floor with him
abe says this thing can decide the whole election but how can we make this happen
jen says she will ask her reporter friend
you are sure about this abe
he says ej has me thinking like him now
cant wait for this election to be over


Will puts the paper in his pocket
Nicole says we are in here
EJ says what are you up to
she says giving will a few things to handle
he says anything important
will says no nothing critical
just deliveries and stuff like that
Will and nic smile at each other


Doug tells Hope that when he looked at the bank statements, he noticed that the money always ended up in the same bank in Africa
Hope says i wonder if whatever is in the box is tied to the bank account
Doug says we are going to get on a plane and go there
to find out more

sami says i cant believe you are bringing up the kids
blaming something you did on your sister
we are talking about something completely different
you use to like that i was crazy and thought outside the box and you told me a million times that was one of the things you love about me
he says that is the sami i love and will never stop loving
she says you could have fooled me
rafe says trying to be honest sorry he is not jumping up and down congratulating her on her new job as a corporate spy
im sorry just worried about you
dont want anything to happen to you
she says this is just cosmetics
he says you are doing this to kate dimera
what happens when she finds out about it , she wont be ok with it
she says i have an exit strategy
he says she isnt going to be ok with, oops om sorry i quit, when you take a job its about the team and the
team comes first
she says i didnt realize that was your new motto ,is that like you and carrie she comes first for you now
he says you got to be kidding me
she says nope

ausitn tells carrie , she stood him up the other night
said she couldnt make it, so he made plans then she said she could make it , so he cancelled those plans and then she didnt show up
she says she was sorry
he says he got stood up for the same date
she says she is trying to get her business up and running so they can stay here
didnt think dinner was that important
he says are we important
she says im trying to find a date that works for both of us
he reminds her that they always found time for each other when she was going to law school
he wonders what they cant find any time now

Hope thanks Julie and Doug for going all the way to Africa to look in to it
Julie says they will make it a second honeymoon
Hope says she is afraid of what they might find
stef is implying gran was involved with something horrible
doug says stef is making it hard he saw doubt he makes people unsure all the time protecting himself
he is so self serving
julie and doug say good bye
hope says its amazing they are doing this
hope says they take the fight to stefano

jen tells abe her contact is wiling to get the questions but not willing to feed Ej the wrong ones , doesnt want
to cross a Dimera
abe says we will have to figure this out ourselves
we have to keep this between us , the
fall out could be catastrophic

Ej says to Nicole how is our little debate project coming along
she says my sources tell me, bam its a lock,, delivery in a few hours
so i have a few things to handle myself , she asks how he is
he says im more than fine,i have a few things to talk to William about
she leaves
Ej says so William anything to report
he says no
ej says no
Will says i wont have any trouble filling up my car
now that im rolling in cash
ej smiles and says it went exactly as i said it would
he says yeah except instead of cash she transferred money into my bank account
ej says the internet , she
is a smart girl
will laughs and says it was kind of exciting
i have never been bribed before
Ej smacks him on the shoulder and says oh look at you
Will laughs

lexi says what are you talking about
Abe says we are talking about the fallout from loosing the debate its so close and a bad performance could be the difference between winning and losing
lexi says you are worried about losing the debate
it doesnt matter, all you have to do is get on stage and they will seethe difference between the 2 candidates
one is a liar and the other is the best man i ever met
she hugs him
abe looks at jen

Will says how did you know that nicole was going to ask me to report to her
Ej says once you realize what women want , predicting their behaviour is straight forward
Will says i will remember that
EJ says she was very generous with you
the funny thing is that really tells me how much she cares
so dysfunctional but
i really love her for it

Austin tells carrie she is free Thursday and his meeting is cancelled
they decide to have a date on Thursday

rafe says of course carrie doesnt come first,you and the kids do
i knew it you had a problem with me taking this job with carrie thought you understood i didnt take the job to hurt you , i did it to put food on the table
she says its the same thing im doing you dont see that
he says no i dont
he says ok and puts his coat on
she says where are you going
he says going to work dont want to be late
she says you are going to leave without saying good bye
he says of course not,,, good bye
she shuts the door
she cries

took my friend and i heard him screaming , i didnt want to know that there were people who could do that i didnt want to be in a world where there are people that could be like that and now that world and those people are more real to me than any of this
its like i feel like im still back in the cave

when i got out and came back i said yes i made it i survived ,going to pick up where i left off and go
it didnt work out that way
i managed to scare the hell out of my wife, i kept freaking out
it wasnt the people back there and it wasnt everything that happened
the world had moved on with out me the people i knew had moved on without me and i couldnt cuz
i have a huge part of myself that is back there
in a cave
i wanna be a good dad to my kids i wanna be a man whose wife wants to be with him
i want to be whole again

lexi drops by jens
abe asks her what was she doing there

Lexi says i know its the last place you want to be right now

why would i want you to open the box if i did
Hope says you tried to make me believe i wasnt ready to face what ever is in the box
you dont want that box opened
Stef says all i wanted to do was protect you
what your grandmother didnt have the heart to expose you to
Bo says you are protecting us
stef says you ?no
but my little art thief here, i always think of her best interests
she says dont you dare refer to me that way or act like thats supposed to mean something sentimental to me
you used me ,you stole years of my life from me, im not falling for your little mind games again

Aby tells Austin she was going to be Modeling for mad world
ausitn says thats fantastic congrats
she wanted to make sure it was ok with him
he says he wouldnt stand in the way of that

hard to think of her as a grown up
she got upset about that

he asked her why she and Austin didnt have kids

Ej thanks Lexi for coming , it means alot that she came

abe wishes he could tell lexi what they are doing
Ej is now leading in the polls ,cant let him have control of the city he has to stop him no matter what it takes

Hope tells stef lets go open the box
stef says you are making a mistake
Hope says maybe what ever is inside that box, might be just what we need to put stefano away for good this time
stef says you are misguided
she says then prove it
stop delaying ,stop hiding behind my grandmother and face up to what you have done
Stef says you have no idea what you are talking about , how many lives those 2 secrets could destroy
Hope says there are 2 secrets inside that box?

Kayla at the pub decorating for the party
carrie and rafe arrive dressed as prince and princess
rafe says the people he hired to play prince and princess from syds fav tv show cancelled at the last minute
and he couldnt get any one else
so he is prince casper and carrie is princess miranda

At the mansion
jen talks to Will
surprised to see him there
he says he is the go between for his family and Ej
abe says thats a big responsibility
Will says no not really now that im working for him
jen says you are working for ej
Abe says since when
he says 2 weeks ago
he thought they knew
im his campaign intern
jen says you are kidding
Abe says you could have come to me
Will says you are completely staffed
abe says i would have made room
jen says you could get out of this
will says thank you but i can t
i committed to Ej, if i left it would be unprofessional

Ej goes to pour Lexi a drink
she tells him she can get her own
where is father
not like him to miss time with his grandchildren
he says this came together rather quickly , i couldnt get a holed of him, couldnt reach him on his cell
lexi says you know what that means ,he is up to no good

Bo says dont clam up tell us more about these 2 secrets
stef says he is as tired of this as they are
after your grandmother saved my sons life i went to see her , wanted to express my gratitude , she said it was not necessary , i told her
i would do everything in my power to pay her back for the debt i felt
Hope says thats why you gave her the card
Stef says yes , she told me she wanted nothing to do with me
Bo says but she hung on to the card
stef says your grandmother was a pistol she and i ,we didnt have very much in common , but i had a lot of respect for her, she was strong honourable, she was a lot more clever than i ever imagined

Austin says you are grown woman now you dont want to be treated like a kid
he apologizes
she tells Austin she might have to go to new york and Europe with the modelling job

kayla takes pics of carrie and rafe
she asks them to practice the dance
they dont watch the show
they dont know about the dance
kayla says joey watches it and at the end they do a ballroom dance
kayla says its easy
she shows them how to do it

Ej says to Nicole as they are watching sydney with lexi and theo
Look at the smile on her face
Nic says she loves being the center of attention
he says she loves being with her family
thats why im going to win this election
i want my children to be proud of the Dimera name , not growing up ashamed of it like I did
she says hey , you didnt turn out so bad
he says really, i think i could have done a little bit better
i want them to have all the things i didnt have growing up
she says i know you are dedicated to making that happen but even if you do win you could lose your sister as a result
he says that is not going to happen , even if we have some sort of fracture in our relationship at the moment
she will come back she always does
he goes to get the camera
The door bell rings
nicole goes to answer it
jen and abe look at each other

Stef says Alice was no fool
and she never allowed anyone to be one with her
a few years after i gave her my card i went to see her again
i had a favour for her
i came across some info about her family, that she wouldnt want anyone in public to know about it , i promised i
i would keep it a secret and that was one way i could pay my debt to her
she said she had something on me
Bo says what did she have on you
he says that i do not know , never told him
we were at a stalemate until she came up with a very smart compromise
Hope says the safety deposit box

carrie and rafe dance
as kayla watches
she says it was perfect
kayla says she has to go, joey hasnt been feeling well
she leaves
rafe sayst his isnt so bad
carrie says im having fun
they tell each other how good they were
then they continue to rehearse

Nicole puts the envelope in a desk drawer in the foyer as jen watches
she tells abe she thinks the questions were dropped off and she saw Nicole get them
she tells him where she saw nic put them
Nicole comes in and sits with will and syd
Abe says its now or never and he goes out into the foyer

Stef says Alice and i refused to reveal what we had on each other so we took what we had and put them in 2 separate envelopes and locked them up, and it couldnt be opened unless we were both there
hope says and my grandmother never found out what you knew about our family
Stef says and i dont know what she had on me
bo says the possibilities are endless
Stef says when she passed away i assumed that would be the end of it
if you 2 had left well enough alone , which you did not
so now we have to face something very real and a very dangerous dilemma for us all

more dancing by carrie and rafe
cheeesy it is
and a waste of time


nic gives syd a big gift
Ej says to Will see what a great time she is having ,are you happy you brought her now
will says you think this is fun wait until my mom finds out she is here
while Ej is taking pictures of sydney
Abe goes out and gets the envelope
he switches the questions with ones he brought with him
ej walks out and sees him and asks him what he was doing out here

stef says i was not bluffing when i told your grandmother what i found out should never be made public , and if i were you 2 ,i would adhere to the same advice
i done my part, now you can either leave sleeping dogs lie or awaken the beast ,the choice is yours

Skye's Spoiler Report - Tuesday, January 31

It's the day after Sydney's birthday party

Brady in bed
Madison comes and kisses his stomach and chest
he wakes up
she wants to snuggle before they go to work
they kiss
and more


sami at the pub
john comes in
she wanted to say hi to grandma
he asks how sydney liked her party
she says she loved it
john says he was glad to be included
she thanks him for the doll carriage
john says marlena is looking forward to the tea parties and games of hide and seek, the things she wishes she could have been there for you and Eric
she says yeah , i bet
he says i heard
you are working for kate how is that going
she says what do you mean by that

Carrie at work
she was pouring coffee and the top fell off and it spilled all over the desk
rafe comes in and helps her
clean up the mess
she tells him she and austin had a big fight, he stormed out and didnt come back and she doesnt know where he is

Austin spent the night in his office at Salem U on the couch
Abigail comes in and waked him up
asks if he is ok
he says he is great,,really great
every once in awhile he likes to sleep on the couch in the office
then he tells her
carrie and i had an argument came here and crashed out on couch
things arent ok

more sex for Brady and Madison if anyone cares
looks like porn

Carrie tells rafe they said awful things to each other,
he tells her to tell him what happened
she says he was mad at her because of the dance but it was a
cheery on the sundae of a messed up week. He thinks i
have time for everything but him
he says he will talk to Austin and explain to him what happened
she says no you will only make things worse

john says i didnt mean to come off sounding noisy
i care is why i asked
sami says i didnt mean to jump all over you
its going really well
he says you working for Kate
she says she works really well with me
he says maybe she has mellowed
she says i wish i had a 48 hour day, then i could get it all done
use to be a hands on mom , havent been able to do that lately
i didnt even get to plan sydney's birthday party
he says when you were the same age as your twins i was the one
who took you to school, bandaged your knees , l made mac and cheese played dolls with you
cuz your mom wasnt there
one of the biggest regrets i have i wasnt there for brady as i should have been
you are a wonderful mom , you are the room mother, you host all the sleep overs
you cheer at soccer games
Will is old enough, you can step back, but
johnny, allie and sydney, they need their mother, they need her now , so if you find this
job getting in the way that, you might want to ask yourself ,
is it worth it


rafe says i wouldnt want to cause any problems
but me leaning on you with sydneys party is causing problems for you and Austin, i just want to let him know, im not going to ask you to do that stuff anymore
she says it isnt you we started having problems when john was arrested
he knew it was going to happen and didnt tell me about it
i started looking at Austin , thinking do i even know him
thought we could put everything behind us , stay in salem and build a new life together
guess in the back of my mind i kept thinking do i really know who he is
he is wondering the same thing, this is our home now
we are still in a hotel, no time to find a place
maybe its stress
austin trying to figure out his teaching, we are trying to start a business
when she was in law school they always found time to be together
what scares me the most maybe its not so important to us anymore

abigail say she is sorry dont know what to say, you guys have
been married forever
he says people get married for different reasons but if you are lucky you get married cuz you are so in love with someone, sometimes
you could be more alone in a marriage than you think possible on your own
she says yeah my mom said something like that once
he says i bet she did , cuz when you are married there is always new things for you to deal with ,the 2 of you have to do it but sometimes you feel like saying
i dont feel like talking about us tonight
thats why i slept on the couch and it got me nothing ,things are worse this morning than they were last night, this is what happens when married people stop talking
he checks his phone and no calls from Carrie
Abigail says she must be crazy to not want to make things right with him

brady tells Madison
he isnt upset with her for what she is doing with sami, the old him would have done the same thing
the old me you never knew before you met me
she says its just business
he says what else havent you told me
she says we should get dressed
he say there is something isnt there

rafe tells carrie, with guys
we get mad we walk out the door
saying i showed her, then they
stand alone on the side walk all alone
he will be there when you get there
she says have you ever done anything like that?
he says no im too reasonable , i sit back and tell sami its all her fault
things were frosty with her last night
she was furious with Will for taking sydney over to Ejs , Will is acting all strange
he cant stand Ej and now he is working for his campaign , im
worried about that kid
she says me too
he says sami and i got in to it
i said some things too
ever since she started this job
i think her boss is using her
carrie says she is working for kate
he says she doesnt want to talk about i t
we would always work things out but now she is doing stuff i cant fathom and it doesnt seem to bother her at all
she says you are seeing apart of my sister i have a lot of experience with , i know how hard that can be

Austin says carrie has reasons to be mad at me
abi says she is lucky to have you you are a great guy, a good person


sami says you havent been around for a long time you dont know about my life , its pretty nervy for you to tell me what to do with my kids
he says im not telling you what to do
just looking back at my own life
and thinking about things i would have done differently
she says well im not you and
i am there for my kids
he says i know you are
she says i still bake cookies for them and i still cheer at their soccer games , and i matter to , this job is important to me and it isnt just to
make ends meet, while
rafe isnt making much money right now
he says how is that working out for the 2 of you , you being so busy and him not?
Saw a certain amount of tension between the 2 of you at sydneys party
wonder if this job
she says its not about the job at all ej and Nicole were at the party too
john said i wondered about that
she says and now im
messing everything up
you probably think im the kind of woman who
can not balance work
and a family, without messing it all up and you know what ?
you are probably right
she storms out

Brady says tell me nothing is coming out of the sky to screw things up
she says its not going to happen

Austin and Abigail go to the square to have coffee
rafe and carrie walk into the square and she sees Austin and Abigail and she says oh i guess he made it through the night ok
she wants to leave
but Austin sees her
carrie says i didnt realize you had a date for breakfast
Abigail says its not a date we just ran in to each other
rafe tells Abigail maybe they should give them some privacy

rafe and abigail talk about Austin sleeping on his couch in the office

sami runs in to rafe at the square
says im late for work its a been a bad morning , ran in to john , gave her some
really valuable life lessons
she doesnt have time to talk about it
she tries to leave but he grabs her
says they need to talk

carrie says to austin , you walk out and spend the night god knows where and i find you here having a cheery little breakfast with your new assistant
he says she found me sleeping on the couch, she is trying to cheer me up
i love you i married you
she says why didnt you come home
he says im tired having same old argument
i went to the office and fell asleep on the couch i wanted forget that, that day ever happened
she says i cant believe that this is us
he says i know we are never upset with each other before we got here
we never fight
can we figure this out

Brady and Madison come in to the pub
john is still there
they talk
she mentions the fashion line
john gets a call he has to take
madsion has to leave cant have breakfast with him
she heard everything he said about sami and she is going to think about it
she leaves
john says what is madison up to with Samantha

sami says she will tell him later after work
john says im screwed up
she doesnt know what he said it
but she is late for a meeting
love to spend the afternoon with you but we need a paycheck
just until him and Carrie get their business going and they are a huge success and then
she can sit at home and eat bonbons and read tabloids
he says i cant wait for that day
she says i knew it
we are good right
i love u
he say love you
kisses
he says go to work

carrie says they always wanted what the other one wanted, but
things have been different since they moved back there
he says i was a jerk, cuz i was selfish i want you to myself
you have been spending a lot of time with rafe during work, after work, after hours
she says she is sorry about that, hasnt been considerate of his feelings
he gets a call, he has a meeting scheduled
he says we are good right
she says we are better than we were,are you
coming home tonight
he say you bet, i love you and no matter what we are going to get thru this
he kisses her good bye

Brady explains to john how sami started out working for Madison and she now she is working for her chief rival kate

madison did a few things sami didnt approve of like going out with me
john says that was none of her business
brady says kate made sami an offer and she accepted it
john says im worried about her
worried this job will make sami revert back to her old tricks and if that happens
she can stand a chance to lose everything that is important to her

sami is sitting waiting for madison outside the square
sami says kate trusts her
as much as she trusts anyone
time to bring her down
Madison says good
i talked to Brady and he hates this whole thing,thinks im using you
he filled me in on your history with Kate , and he the dimera family, he
doesnt want to see anything happen to you
sami says kate is never going to know that i was a part of this
mad says as much as i want to hurt kate i dont want to hurt you or lose brady and if we go along with this plan we know that can happen

rafe is back at the office
carrie comes in and says her and Austin talked
he says he talked to sami ,but she has somewhere to go people to see
he remembers when he had a job like that
he should go a little easier on her
then they laugh over the coffee pot and he throws int in the trash

Austin goes back to his office
he says he is glad to see her he apologizes that she had to witness the scene between him and carrie
she is sorry for what he is going thru
he says he doesnt want her to worry about it

sami says since when did you let your boyfriend try to run your business
Brady is not trying to run things , he is concerned about what kate my do to you
i care about what he thinks and i care about you
i think we should just abort this whole plan
Sami says and then what, you just leave me there with her
mad says i would never do that
sami says
what are my options i could quit my job and end up with no job
or i could quit my job and go back and work for you and then Kate will poison me
mad says you are acting like we dont have a choice
sami says cuz we dont
we are in too deep ,we have gone this far we have to see it through i risked everything for this, you can not leave me hanging

Skye's Spoiler Report - Wednesday, February 1

Will home looking at his phone at a pic of him and gabi
knock on the door
its sonny
they talk about seeing a movie
devil wears Prada
sonny says his date will want to see it , so
why not watch a movie here
and dont say you are uncomfortable being alone with me
Will says its not that , lately your friends have been thinking , things about me and
how does one know when they are gay
how did you know im curious

Brady at the pub,Madison comes in
he asks her if her and sami came up with new ways to destroy kate
she says she has been thinking alot about what he said and she apologizes
for lying to him

Jennifer, jack and Abigail at the Horton house
Abigail says i have unbelievable news, my life will never be the same
jack says if you tell us you are pregnant , ill make sure that his next job will be as a eunuch in a harem
Abigail tells them she got an internship at mad world
and Madison wants her to be a model too
jack says thats great
jen says i would rather you to be pregnant
(Jennifer's hair is very nice today)

Will says he is sorry
if he doesnt want to talk about it
just curious since we are friends
sonny says without knowing what gay meant,he remembers really liking comic superheros and cute guys on tv
didnt understand it ,but didnt question it either
the way he was the way he was born
the girls came later, noticing guys when he was freshmen in high school,not just the studs just guys
they were with girls, so in order for him to hang out with them, he hung out with girls, ill be with girls too
he fooled them but didnt fool himself
didnt like lying to them and didnt like leading them on, most of all didnt like the lie he was living
every birthday during high school
when it came time to blow out candles he wished gay sonny would go away so he could be like everybody else
hard to believe he felt that way about himself
Will says i get it

abi says you would rather i be pregnant than be a model
jen says no but i dont want you to live on cigarettes and water
and you are in school
abi says i can do both
jen says there is no way
Madison James will understand when you refuse her offer

carrie's law firm cut their funding cuz they werent bringing in enough business to justify the subsidy there were getting
rafe says i guess its official , without that subsidy we are out of business


madison tells brady she is afraid the business with kate is going to make him think twice about us
he says it wont come between us , you are not going to lose me over this
mad says you are right im pulling the plug
not going to have Sami spy for me anymore

sonny says there isnt no ahah moment
lived with hating myself, thought that would be easier than being myself , but i couldnt have been more wrong
i was angry ,hated the fact i was different
i was good at school, good at sports
why couldnt i be good at being straight
Will asks what were you afraid of the most
i was afraid i wasnt going to live the life i had seen for myself
i wanted a wife, kids
house picket fence
it scared me to think i might not have that
will says that would freak me out too
Sonny says the worse part was not having anyone to talk to
i had all this stuff going on in my head and i was afraid if i asked for help that people would know i was gay and i would lose everything i was holding onto . even though it was lie
its hard, i wouldnt wish it on anybody

abi says im not asking for permission
im doing this
Jen says you are not doing any job that involves modelling
Abi explains what Madison is doing
Melanie and her were chosen
jen says i thought you Melanie were no longer friends because of chad
jack says he rather her modelling with Melanie than some muscle bound guy
jen is afraid she might flunk out of school
says i forbid you to take this job

sonny says he would break up with girlfriends when he was
afraid they were close to knowing the score
back in high school he had no friends
walls between him and everyone else
it kills me to think that there are
people out there right now living the same lie i was , they are too afraid their world would end if it came out they were gay
Will says you came out and your family was fine with it
what if somebody comes out and all hell breaks loose
what if telling the truth hurts more people than living a lie?

carrie says if we had more time
i wanted it to work, feel like a failure
he says you are amazing in so many ways
she says you are too
she smiles at him
he says what am i going to do now
work on abes campaign
carrie says she can go back to Switzerland , her law firm left a spot open for her

Abi says you cant forbid me, im a legal adult
jack says she is right,, she doesnt need our permission
but at the same time you need to take
take your mothers concern seriously, you cant let the job get in the way of your school work
she says im still modelling for Madison
jen says no you are not,you are asking for trouble
there are shady people in this world , who want to do creepy things to innocent girls
abi says i know how to take care of myself

im taking this job neither one of you can stop me
Jen says if you take this job this is not your home anymore you can move out

Brady tells Madison he is glad she dropped it
it will be all ok,means alot to me
she says for years all i cared about was making mad world successful
now there is something else i care about and thats you brady
ive never not put buisness first and its all because of you
brady says you and me , it doesnt get much better
she tells him she cares so much about him
he says no one has ever gotten to me in the way that you have
you were so worth the wait

sonny says it isnt always easy when you come out
my friend tyler, had a lot of screaming , he didnt talk to his dad for awhile,but hey are good now
for me coming out meant being free, no more hiding
no more lying no more shame
once you except who you are things get better
im even closer to my family now that they know the truth
will says you make it sound really easy, i want to believe you but i dont

rafe says Switzerland
Carrie says Austin doesnt want to leave town
but they cant survive on his salary alone
rafe doesnt want Carrie to go back to Switzerland


jen says do you expect us to pay tuition for classes that you wont be attending and add wheat grass and tofu our shopping list, while you exist on
black coffee and no sleep , im saying this because i love you
Abi says being kicked to the curb really makes me all warm and fuzzy inside
jen says you have never talked about modelling you were always a tomboy
jack says it did come out of no where
she says this is a chance for me to do something new and exciting with my life
people will notice me and take me seriously
they will see me as a grown woman
and not a little girl
jen says dont you want to be respected?
Abi say says thats why i want to be a model
jen says you want to show people your brain power not your cheek bones
Abi says talking to you is useless
i made up my mind im going to be a model
and if i have to, ill pay for an apartment out of the money i make, im sick of living with your drama anyway
she leaves
jack says to Jennifer
what were you thinking?
She says im Protecting our daughter
do you really want our daughter to be a model
he says yeah if it gets us into parties, no of course not
but we cant decide what job she gets
our daughter just walks out of the house she is leaving so she can start her modelling job
he reminded her of what happened between him and abi and chad
and someone told him to give their daughter her space
we make a mess of our lives from time to time
but we havent messed up our kids, they are good kids
they are smart and responsible , we have to let them make their own mistakes if we dont and decide for them, we can lose them forever
jen says she is afraid
i lost gram
i lost Daniel, i lost you
im not going to lose my little girl
she cries and he hugs her

carrie tried different contacts and no one has any openings for lawyers around the area
she says she loved her job and working with him
i guess we should start packing
rafe says just wait you dont want this to end anymore than i do
cant quit now just getting started
we are going to make this work together

jen says i worry about her travelling, she got kidnapped here
look what happend to him
he says she is not going to model in Kabul and
not travelling alone
jen says im not ready to let her go
he says he isnt either, hates the idea
abi is going to do what she wants whether we like it or not
better not to fight with her
and not lose touch with her all together
jen says wow,you are being the voice of reason
he says and you are listening
she says im listening always jack

brady and Madison go home
she says i have been through a lot of drama in my life more than you know and
there is something i want to tell you
i have been thinking about it a lot
her phone rings


sonny says i didnt lie to you about coming out sometimes its easy sometimes its not
Will says you made it seem like coming out fixes everything from then on life is perfect
Sonny says coming out doesnt guarantee a happily ever after
but you have a better chance of being happy if you dont keep secrets about anything
Will says you knew your family was going to be ok
but not every family is
Sonny says i thought they would be cool,, but i was still afraid to tell them
my brother alex freaked out a bit, cool now, got over it
Will says your parents are awesome your dad is
they took the news like it was great
sonny says they were a little bummed
they were afraid that i could never find love and thats what its all about, finding that special someone to go through life with
you cant find true love if you are not living your own truth

carrie says i dont know how we can keep it going
he says well rent is paid for the month , so we have some time
it takes time to build Clientele, if i have to work over time with Abe ill do it ,,are you with me
she says im with you all the way

madison wont tell him who was on the phone
he says he has to meet an investor
so she can tell him later what she wanted to tell him
he has something to say to her
i love you
i love you
she kisses him and say i love you too
more than anything or anyone
they kiss
he leaves

Abigail at the square sitting on the couch
jack comes
he sits with her by climbing over the back of the couch
and says so the big news is your big news didnt go the way you wanted it to
she says why cant she be happy for me
he says she is going to come around to your way of thinking
in the mean time
it would help if you promised to be careful ,when you are modelling if something doesnt seem right let your mom or me know that would make your mother happy
she says thanks dad for listening and being here
really glad you are home and back in our family again
hugs
he says yeah me too

Skye's Spoiler Report - Thursday, February 2

Hope is in the office with the safety deposit box
Bo says when stef arrives you can say you changed your mind

Ej and Nicole at home
they are going over the questions
Will is there at the desk
Nic says good job, sounds like it meant something
Ej says it means you dont have to make any of those pesky promises you are expected to keep after the election
Nic says it was a wonderful performance
he says its easy to be well versed when you have the questions in advance
nic says you should be careful
in what you say around Will, you
know his family is friends with Abe
Ej says oh William isnt going to say anything are you William?

sami goes over to Madisons room
sami says she has a new idea of sabotaging kates campaign
Madison says she decided to pull the plug , she doesnt want her to spy for her anymore

Ej says one thing i dont have to worry about is the loyalty of my staff, right William
Will says right
Ej says it would never cross his mind to tell Abe or anybody else for that matter , how i manged to acquire the questions for the debate
Will says of course not
Nicole says alright thats it
i want to know what the hell is going on here right now

Hope says its not like me going back and forth
she wants to know what her gran had on stefano but
part of her wants to call this whole thing off
throw the key into the river
but i cant do it
if whats inside the box affects my family as bad as i think it does
how can i walk away
Bo says getting that information involves making a deal with the devil
and so it does, here he is now
stefano says from the doorway


Nic says i said i want to know whats going on here
Ej says you have nothing to worry about
she says i think ill make that decision, i am so tired of you blowing me off , every time i ask about Will
Ej says you just dont like not knowing what im up to
she says no i dont
he says i can understand that
i wasnt thrilled when you transferred a rather generous amount of money into Williams bank account
she says you know about that?
i can explain
he says you dont need to explain
i know what you were up to
she says fine, so what are you going to do
he says im going to write a very large cheque to cover the balance of your failed bribe
she says so you are not upset?
He says im not upset, one of the joys of being in a relationship with you is
i know you very well
she says maybe you dont know
me as well as you think you do
she looks at Will and says and you Will you turned me in ?
Will says i work for him not you
Nic says fine since you have your pretty little intern here , i guess you wont miss me
i quit
ej if i am not part of your inner little circle here then i am leaving

stef says i assume you decided to use your grandmothers key
stef takes his key out and says there it is
i have given you fair warning
once you open this box there is no turning back
Bo says im sure you have as much at stake as she does
Stef says true i guess we are going to have an illuminating day ,,all of us

sami cant believe Madison wants her to stop spying on kate
she says i trusted, i have taken huge risks, and now you are
hanging me out to dry
i earned kates trust
i spied on Kate
if she finds out
she invented the word revenge, and now she is married to stefano
she will kill me if she finds out what im up to
Mad says im going to protect you
sami says she wants to hear about the exit strategy

Nic says how many times have i told you i can not do my job in the dark
he says how many times have i told you
she says yes, you are protecting me but
unless you are burying bodies
in the back yard , that i dont want to know about
but hiring an intern shouldnt be a state secret , the only person you are protecting is yourself
he says from what
she says i dont know you tell me
he says so i tell you or you are going to walk away from your job and from everything?
She says i cant live like this , i told you
he says Did you ever think that the person i might be protecting might be William
she looks over at Will and says no, what?
Ej says he has a secret and i promised i wouldnt repeat it
she says what does that have to do with you
he says what do you think it has to do with me,,,,im blackmailing him
Will looks shocked

nic says you are blackmailing him?
Ej says Will would you like to do the honour or shall i
Will says do you think this is funny , i dont
EJ says i dont but i have the upper hand i always have fun with that
it occurred to me that Wills long standing ties to the carver family
could be quite useful
Nic says and he agreed why
eJ says you werent here when i was shot at the alter
she says no i heard about it
you were going to marry sami and Lucas put you out of misery with a bullet
Ej says well thats sort of what Lucas wanted everybody to believe but the truth is , it was William who shot me


Sami says thats it thats your plan to protect me
you are double crossing me
Mad says why would i tell you what i was doing
Sami says i have broken a few laws here
when the truth comes out , you will cover your own ass and i am going to have to face the consequences
im not going to let you do this to me

Stef says have you thought this through my dear
your gran has something on me what could it be ?
Hope says something damaging to put you away for the rest of your life
stef says thats foolish,would your grandmother let me get away with murder?
And any lesser crimes have been taken care of years ago
lets talk about you and your family
i know what ever she has on me could hurt me, but i could take it
you have no idea what family member is going to be hit
when you open that box
or what is going to happen to them
hope says im doing the right thing
stef says when i open that box i only take what she left in the envelope for me, neither one of
you touch what she has left for me

Mad says you need to calm down and stop making this all about you
sami says it is about me,
mad says it was my idea ,lay it on my doorstep
sami says kate wont care whos idea it was, im the one who did it , if she finds out what i done a hoard of dragons wont stop her from getting revenge on me

Nicole says so Lucas wanted everyone to think that he shot you
Ej says oh and they did, they just skipped over the fact that lucas has never been successful at anything that he had ever attempted
Will says watch it
Ej says you are right , that was a step too far
he was looking out for his son
Will says you are a son of a bitch
Ej says im a son of a bitch and you are a bad shot
which is a good thing or neither one of us would be standing here today

Nic says i can see it in his eyes its true
Ej says William wanted me dead but not anymore right William

Mad says you didnt think this would go on forever
sami says no just until we got kate, which we havent
Mad says its too dangerous , so im ending it
you enjoy sticking it to kate and enjoy getting 2 salaries
Sami says it isnt that ,you are doing this for Brady

bo says you are scared of what you are going to find in the box
Stef says im not scared
dont give a damn what people think of me outside my family
i dont think there is anything threatening in there
Hope says it could change your familys feelings about you
Stef says what, are they going to find out i did something,baaaad
they cant find out anything worse than what they already know
i had a great deal of respect for your gran but she wasnt a match for me

mad says brady told her some things
she should have shared with her
things about the Dimeras and his family and Kate
never should have done this in the first place
not going to apologize for brady being part of her decision
sami says you are letting the guy you are sleeping with call the shots
thought she was better than this
he isnt one to judge
Mad says he isnt like that anymore
sami says ok, your boyfriend is disappointed in you , my husband is disappointed in me, i worked too hard on this project
to let rafe ruin it by being disappointed in me
mad says i made a decision and its final and im the boss
Ej says as you know sometimes relationship begin on a sour note, but can end up being quite successful , i think William here is going to make an excellent addition to our team , you are learning a lot arent you William
he says yeah a lot
ej says one day we are going to be able to trust him without this sword hanging over his head
but for now the sword is still there , i suppose the point is moot
Nic says i dont know, maybe he will take another shot at you
Ej says oh he was an agitated young man , i was about to marry his mother
those days are long gone
Will says are they?
Ej gives him a look
Nic says who else knows about this
he says just the 3 of us know and
how i found out is irrelevant
Will i can understand you being a little bit concerned about me sharing this info with nicole , one day you will understand
when you meet your soul mate you dont keep secrets
Will says i wouldnt know about that
EJ says well you will
its important the 3 of us put our cards on the table
Will says all of them?
Ej says excuse me?
Will smiles and says so how far do you want to go with this full disclosure thing
Ej gives him a look
Will says should i put my cards on the table?
the looks between Ej and Will
priceless

sami says maybe you dont know how it feels to be a parent
wondering how you are going to feed your kids and keep a roof over their heads , thats what i have been dealing with and these 2 paychecks make a huge difference
rafes last pay cheque brought in 18 cents

Nic says again what the hell is going on here
ej says William is learning to play in the big leagues
will says i dont like being treated like a child
EJ says im not treating you like a child
Will says i think you were
you want us to be honest with nicole then
shouldnt she know everything
ej says if you really think that is necessary William go ahead and tell her
will smiles




sami tells Madison she is disappointed in her
mad say go to Kate and hand in your resignation, tell her your family needs you , thats an order
sami says i would take that order if i still worked for you
this is my resignation ,my family needs me

stef says we could leave the box
Bo says why didnt you throw the key away
stef says perhaps i should have
perhaps Alice should have , its
not too late
we close this up and go home
hope says gran wanted someone to know what was inside the box
the key fell in to our hands , it
happened for a reason lets open it
she put her key in


nic says tell me whats going on here
ej says william you dont mind if i take this one
im feeling quite shabby about the way i coerced young William here to work for me
she says yeah i can see its really getting to you
he says you know me if i make a mistake im the first person to admit it , im trying to make amends for it , so
i bought him a new sports car, i gave him a nice parking space at his new apartment in the dimera complex
Will says new apartment?
eJ says its very lovely
right up on the penthouse , nice view of the town square , sort of man about town
our friend is going to have a very active social life
Nic says thats really generous of you
the phone rings , she goes out

will says wow you gave me a car and now you give me an apartment
Ej says i
thought it was time for you to have a taste of freedom
Will says thats great
Ej says so we are good
will says no you should not have told nicole about the shooting
makes me feel that you are not trustworthy

stef puts his key in the box
they open it
2 brown envelopes in the box
stef takes his out
hope is afraid
she asks bo if this i the right thing
he says its your call
she looks at sfef and the envelope

eJ says i might not be completely trustworthy, but
im bloody generous
Will says do you think im some kid you can buy off with a shiny red fire truck
Ej says no i think you are
young man thats why i bought you a bachelor
pad and nice sports car
Will says thats you trying to keep me from telling nicole what i know
Ej says if you tell nicole
its going to put a kink in our relationship
she and i have been thru worse
you will go to prison for the rest of your life
go upstairs and pack your bags
(Will doesnt live there), go over to your new apartment , door man will give you the key
and if i need you for anything
i will call you
Will says what if i say no
ej says we both know you are not going to say no
will says right
Ej says dont ever threaten me again , people have tried to before it never worked out well for the other guy ever

mad says thats crazy you cant keep working for kate
you dont trust her
sami says i trusted you and look where it has gotten me
mad says you are making a huge mistake but you know that
sami says i would love to say it has been a pleasure working for you but i cant
and countess w is going to drive mad world in to the ground good luck
she leaves

hope is taking awhile to look at her envelope
stef says they could lock the box if she is getting cold feet again
she takes the envelope and hugs it

will is home writing a note
sami comes in and
and sees his luggage
whats this
he says those are my worldly possessions i am moving out

nic says
i saw Will storming out of here
ej says yes he seems to have inherited his mothers rather volatile disposition
i gave him an apartment and a car and he gives me grief
she says but you told me in front of him that he tried to kill you
ej says he has to learn to roll with the punches
she says the sudden interest in his personal growth stems from ?
He says i see a little bit of myself in the boy
she says i understand why he has to do what you tell him
why did you have to set him
up with a car and apartment ?
if i didnt know any better i would think that he was blackmailing you

bo tells stef he got what he wanted good bye
stef says he will give them the privacy but her grandmother wen thru great lengths to make sure that envelope never sees the light of day
she didnt want her to see i t or any one else, her grandmother
did what ever she could to help her family
you should try to be a little bit like her
once you open that envelope i assure you , you will never forget whats in side
he leaves

sami says you are moving out
where will you go, this is sudden
he says its been in the works
but im staying in Salem
she says are you moving in with my mom
he says no i got my own place
she says how did you sign a lease you dont even have job, except that internship.
Ej did this ?
He says yeah he leased a great apartment overlooking the town square for me
great perks of working for him
so see you .....around ?

Sami says we have to talk about this
he says i left a note for johnny allie and Sydney, we will be in touch
she says this isnt right you are doing this to punish me
you are going to tell me what is going on

bo says there is no pressure to open that right now
forever if you want


stef looks up to heaven and sighs holding his envelope

sami says you have been so cold and mean to me
you are your old self with everyone
everyone except me
you are not the son i use to know
will says of course the problem couldnt be you
she says i know i made a some mistakes
tell me what is going on

madison sitting on the bed with her phone saying , where are you
guess he is coming to town


ej says how could William be blackmailing me
he is a kid he is very naive
she says i like the kid but he is samis son
sami who will try to do anything to get what she wants
he says yes he is just like her
and thats why he can be of use to the Dimera family
she says
if you can hold whatever will did over his head
why would you set him up with a car and an apartment , it seems to me that
he has something on you too

Sami says tell me whats wrong
Will says really mom, do you really want to know

he can be useful because of who he is connected to
nobodys going to suspect that he is with me, nobodys going to suspect that he is carrying out my plans

then more quietly, i swear to you
she touches his face and says ok
he kisses her

sami says tell me what you think that i have done

you have no idea why i might be upset with you , you have no clue at all?

At the square

jen and lexi and abe walk in
ej says it will be a spirited debate, but dont worry, we play by the rules
the mod leaves
Nic says abe should just go home now, ej laughs

Jen says look at
those 2, so sure they have this race won

Ej says to Nic, we have the advantage no way we can lose

Abe tell jen there is no way ej can win
ej and abe say at the same time, he has no idea what he is up against

carrie tells the woman rafe is her partner, not husband
she leaves
carrie apologizes,she doesnt know why she would think they were married
he says i can do a hell of a lot worse

Sami says no i have no idea why you are mad at me
he says so typical even when you demand i tell you the truth you refuse to be honest yourself
she says i dont know what has happened , i think about all the things we have been thru all the things you have forgiven me for
it has never been like this
dont understand we worked thru so many fights
so many dark times ,in the last few years we have been so close and your love and support means so much to me i want that back
he says stop,why is that my fault, you say that you can count on me, why cant i count on you
why do i always feel like im the adult in this relationship
she says im not blaming you,
he says you have made so many messes i am tired of cleaning up
you want to know why im so angry with you because
you keep destroying the only real family that i have ever had


The debate gets started
Abe and Ej are introduced
todays topic is jobs and the local economy
first question for EJ
there has been
a lot of talk about using salem U as a means to bolster the towns economy
in what way would you use the university to those ends
Nicole looks confused
abe and jen look at ej
Ej is taking awhile to answer
he says the university is a vital part of salems economic engine it provides many jobs and it could provide many more , i think the thing to do would be to create a commission to work out how better to to do that
thank you

Abe answers the question more easily, he would like to
expand the university right now
bring jobs in construction to build the new campus buildings
increase enrolment
we should in act incentives to keep the student here in salem after they graduate
everyone claps
ej and nicole look at each other then nic looks at Jen
jen smiles

rafe and carrie begin to work on the case
on the computer
they talk about how they feel bad for the woman
rafe says lets hope she is wrong
carrie brings up her feeling bad for him losing his job with the police
he says he doesnt regret what he did
john is family
she says i wish Austin could have been more like you
she thinks she and Austin have been on opposite sides of everything since johns case
she feels sad and lonely
he says you are not alone

Sami says i love you
and your brother and sisters
he says you are lying to me
you dont care about us
you dont love me
you only care about yourself
what you have done is going to tear our family apart
she says i dont know what you are talking about
he yells ,i saw you i know what you did
i saw you having sex with EJ
she says Will no , i dont know what you think you saw but
he says you are lying to me you always lie to me
when the whole town was searching for your son, you were having sex with Ej
thats why we couldnt find you
she says its not what you think
he says i know what i saw ,you betrayed rafe and our whole family, do you know what you are?
you are a whore
you are nothing but a whore

They take a quick break at the debates
Ej takes nic aside and says what is going on,im getting killed , i didnt know any of those questions
she says i dont know what happened , the mods office said we had the right questions
he says your contact was wrong
she says it doesnt matter you did fine
he says im spinning out there as best as i can and listening to Abes coronation , this guy is on point,he is poised,its like he has the
its like he knew all the questions
nic says no way honest Abe carver he wouldnt
ej says think about it
she looks over at them and says
oh my god you are right that bastard
Ej says he had the real questions and gave us the fake ones
Nic says you are not going to let him get away with it , so what if he is prepared , you can still win this, stay focused and remember you are doing this for your kids and you get up there
and think of them
and destroy abe carver

rafe says understand what you are going thru
sami and i,were a united front
when we were held up in the safe house
it was us against the world
right now i feel like sami and i are worlds apart and i have no idea why
i use to be able to look in to her eyes and know what she was thinking , but not anymore
part of me thinks im better off not knowing

sami says i didnt know what i was doing , i was lost in my grief i thought johnny was dead, thought i was never going to see him again
he says so your first instinct was to have sex with Ej?
She says no its not like i wanted him
i was heartbroken and devastated i was trying to numb the pain , not have it be real
i cant begin to explain what it feels like to think you have lost your child
he says you are making excuses
she says im not doing that
i know what i did is unforgivable
i have felt the guilt and the regret since the moment it happened
i will never forgive myself never stop torturing myself for what i have done
he says am i supposed to feel sorry for you after what you did to my family and what you did to rafe
she says you are not going to tell him are you
he says part of me would love to tell him and see him leave you ,walk out the door and never look back
but i love my brother and sister and i dont want them to lose out on the family that i always wanted, the family you were never able to give me , so its
your lucky day im not going to say anything right now
she says thank you
he says just so we are clear,i hate you and i always will and i want you out of my life for good

she says no im not going to let you get rid of me im your mother i love you , you will always be a part of your life
he says you have never been there for me, always
too busy chasing after some guy who didnt love you to even care about how i was doing
she says i love you so much
he says really, do you know what is happening to me
she says no i dont cuz you wont talk to me, you have been shutting me out but now that everything is out in the open
I can be there for you ,, i can make a difference this time if you will give me
one more chance
he says too late and thanks to Ej i never have to live under this roof again and listen to your lies every day
she says if you knew what Ej and I did
why are you working for him, you must hate him too
he says i do i went to him and i told him what i saw, but he
surprised me , i was looking for a way to get out of salem so i wouldnt have to see you again
but he gave me a way to stay here and start my life over
she says he turned you against me
he says no you did that on you own

ej says the topic of the day is the economy but i want to remind the voters that the job of mayor comes with
exacting moral standards
standards that your current mayor hasnt always been able to live up to
there has been marital indiscretion
Lexis face, lol
and whilst these personal failings do not in and of themselves disqualify him from the position, these are certainly factors that voters should be considering when they are deciding to trust with the future of their city
Abe says i would like to respond
unlike my opponent i dont think its necessary to sully the integrity of this process or this office by resorting to
personal attacks
i would like to point out
the word indiscretions does not begin to describe the many past activities of Mr. Dimera
both personal and professional
and if Mr. Dimera would like to pursue this matter further
i would be very happy to provide details

rafe got a lead on Julia
address, he wants to check it out
she wants to go with him
has nothing else to do
he says i would be more than happy to have you along

will says you should know better than anyone the hatred and disgust i feel for you right now
carrying around a terrible secret
knowing what a despicable person your own mother is you know first hand what that does to someone right
she says no what you think is happening thats not whats happening
he says history repeating itself
seems that way to me
she says what happened with me and ej is nothing like what my mother did
he says yeah it was worse at least grandma loved john
what you and Ej did was disgusting it was filthy
she says im so sorry for what i have done to you
he says what grandma did ruined your life by tearing your family apart and you just did the same thing and you ruined mine
congrats you have become what you always hated about your own mother
she says no Will
and she goes to grab him
he pushes her off, a really good shove , she almost fell on the couch
and says dont touch me
he walks out

sami is there alone crying
look sat her wedding ring
and leaves the apartment

Abe is laughing
Lexi tells him he did so great
i could kill my brother for making this personal
i wouldnt have been able to hold my tongue if i was up there
it doesnt matter you out performed him on every level
i know why
he says why
she says you speak from your heart and you stuck by your convictions and the answers came easy you have the best heart of anyone i know

nic says i think you have a chance of pulling out a win
he says im just trying to figure out how abe manged to get those questions
nic says the results for the first internet polls are coming through

Jen says 67 percent think Abe won the debate
they cheer


Will goes to the pub looks in the window


carrie and rafe come back
she thought the man was having an affair but
Julia is a party planner
he was going to have a surprise anniversary party for her
carrie says he is in love with her even after 30 years
rafe says we saved a marriage
she says this was our first real job we got paid
they hug
then they look at each other
and they kiss
sami is outside the door


ej says congrats abe you pulled off a real victory
your responses were very eloquent
nic says you were amazing if i didnt know better i would think you had the questions ahead of time
jen says are you insinuating Abe was cheating?
Nic says oh no , you misunderstood me , im accusing
Ej says you knew the questions didnt you ?
Lexi is shocked

will goes into the pub
says hey guys whats up
sonnys gay friends are there
will says he has been busy
they say they are about to head to a party, they ask him to come
will says im free

rafe and carrie continue to kiss
sami opens the door and stares at them with her mouth open

Austin is over at the mansion visiting kate in the living room
stefano is there
looking out the window
she wants him and carrie to come for dinner some night
stef is quiet looking out the window
kate asks him whats wrong

Hope and Bo at jennifers
Hope is deciding whether or not to open the envelope

They show the start of carrie and rafes kiss again
Sami comes in and
clears her throat
and gives them the look

Lexi says how dare you question me about trust, marriage or friendship
when you have 3 failed marriages and not a single friend
Abe tells her to stop its not worth getting upset over
she says no im not going to stop , im not going to stand here and let my brother and what ever she is to him
accuse you of cheating ,,,,really?
Ej says not only did he have all of the answers but he delivered them in a way that sounded rehearsed , dont you find that a little bit odd
she says abe did his homework, you planned to charm yourself
into a win and you failed
Nic says when i find out how you got those questions and i will, i will spread it like wild fire
you will lose the election, you both will lose everything

Sami comes storming thru the door,and throws her purse down , says what the hell are you doing?
Rafe says this is not what you think
sami says are you kidding me , i just caught my sister kissing my husband , its not what i think, what were you practising prince and princess again
rafe says we were excited
sami says i could see that part
carrie says we were excited because we helped a client save her marriage
sami says what were you kissing to celebrate?
Carrie says it was nothing it meant nothing
sami says how stupid do you think i am
i just caught you kissing my husband, you dont kiss someone like that for the hell of it
carrie says it was just a kiss
sami says what would have happened if i hadnt of walked in
i expect it from her she always wanted everything i had , but you ..i thought you loved me
he says i do
sami says then how could you betray me like this

kate checks stefanos blood sugar
stef asks Austin where his wife was
he says she is working
Stef says i remember carrie when she was a little girl , she would run through this house and laughing at everything and Anthony loved her as if she was his own , i miss them both
they ask Austin and carrie over for dinner
Austin says that can be a problem
he says i didnt want to get in to this
carrie and i have been having problems
kate asks what happened
he says things have been strained since the john black thing
thought things would get better
they have new jobs dont see each so much
kate says he should be with his wife now
tells him to go find carrie and find her
and surprise her
he doesnt want rafe to know , how bad things are between him and carrie
they are spending alot of time together working
kate says well not today see carrie and convince her to play hooky work on your marriage
he says you are right we both have to work this out
she says make things right with carrie we will get together and celebrate
he leaves

kate says , your blood sugar wasnt the problem before
what was


bo wonders what alice had on stef and if they will ever know
she thinks opening the envelope might be a mistake

Sami says i cant believe i was making an effort to get along with you
carrie says we were getting along
Sami says until you came back to salem and set your sights on my husband
after everything that happened with austin , this is your way of evening the score , i am happily married
i have 4 amazing children
i finally have a job and this is your opportunity to make your move
carrie says this is nuts
sami says oh really, you had your tongue in my husbands mouth and i am the one who is nuts?
Carrie says i dont want to ruin your life ,im happy you are happy and if i could take back what happened right now i would
sami starts to leave
rafe stops her
says think about it
carrie isnt the type of woman who cheats on her husband
sami says actually she is rafe
you didnt know that about her
carrie is a slut and you are a traitor
for defending her

Lexi says you will never prove abe and jen cheated cuz they didnt
Ej says im glad to have such a noble sister but your faith in certain people has blinded you to the truth
she says cant you just lose gracefully?
He says no i cant ,i will win this race she says no you wont
Ej says he certainly won there is no doubt about that but if you think im the only person who is capable of dirty tricks in this election you are a fool
She says our team
plays fair unlike yours
he says i appreciate you defending your husband i dont wish to hurt you and i dont wish to see you to be hurt
she says you are not going to
ej says then open your eyes and see what is in front of you , if you dont
you are going to get quite a shock when you wake up one day and the truth comes out and believe you me the truth always comes out in the end


Hope says imagine how the conversation went with stefano
when she got information on him
bo says she probably stuck it to him over a cup of coffee and a doughnut
she says i see him choking on the first bite
she isnt sure she wants to know whats in there, she is terrified

kate says all this time you had something on the Hortons and you could never use it cuz sweet white haired alice horton was blackmailing you ?
stef says correct
she asks what happened when you opened the box
he tells her they took their envelopes
he says its up to Hope if she opens it or not
she says and what about you
what did alice have on you
he says i dont know


rafe says im so sorry for what happened
it was one innocent kiss
sami says dont start with it being innocent
Carrie says because you are so innocent , you have never done anything you regretted?
your whole life
sami says this isnt about me
this is about you and my husband
carrie says what about you and my husband
i know what she is going to say , oh miss carrie she is so perfect but
im the one who has never cheated on the man i loved
rafe loves you and you need to trust that love
sami says how dare you tell me what to do or what i need, this isnt about me and my insecurities this is about you , and obviously you are having troubles in your marriage ,
im not im happily married and have 4 great kids things you dont have and you cant stand that
rafe says dont blame carrie , im sorry we got excited
she says oh you were so excited you found yourselves kissing each other
Austin at the door says what in the hell did i just hear , you and rafe were kissing


Lexi says you are pathetic, im so done with you
he says im sorry you are upset but im
even more sorry that your husband is a liar and a cheat
one day you will realize you put your faith in the wrong family member
EJ and Nicole leave

Lexi tells abe she is sorry the nerve of them accusing him of cheating
Jen says lexi it doesnt matter now it is done
Lexi says how can the 2 of you so easily forgive and forget you just stood there and let them say horrible and crazy thing about you
they were crazy werent they?
Abe says cant believe you would ask me that
she says this is the first time i heard you sound like a politician did you or did you not cheat to win the debate

kate says why havent you opened the envelope to see what it says
stef says i have my reasons
kate asks if he is worried
he says no just being cautious
she says what did Alice tell you
he says she said make sure you never let anyone see whats in the envelope myself included



hope doesnt know what to do
bo says there is nothing to stop stefano from going public with whats in the envelope
she takes it and goes to open it
but she stalls again says im
looking for a sign from gran if i am supposed to open it
she looks over on the mantle and sees her grandpas old book
say says i havent seen it in years
she goes and open the book, a piece of paper falls out and she says gran sent me a sign


Austin says you kissed my wife rafe
he runs and tries to grab rafe
carrie stops him and says it wasnt all his fault
he says you let him kiss you
she says no it just happened
Austin says you crossed the line
we took vows and now you are going to do this to me
i dont know
rafe says to sami you and i can go home so we can talk about this
sami says to carrie if you think ill forget this i wont,,,, ever
they leave
Austin laughs and says for once i agree with sami
anything else you want to say to me

abe says what do you think my answer will be yes honey i cheated i betrayed you, me our son everyone who believed in me so i could beat you brother in a local debate?
She says i know you are not like my brother, you are honest
the says then hen why question me
she says im sorry
he says dont be its ej s fault not yours
she says so you didnt
he says no, no, i didnt cheat
she laughs and hugs him

Ej and nicole are sitting at a table in the square
Nic says abe got those debate questions ahead of time
he says right but there is no way to prove it
she says and without proof we cant accuse him publicly for cheating
he says no not without the voters realizing we were trying to do it first
he just beat us to it
whats the bloody world coming to a man like abe carver stoops so low?
He laughs
Nic says
we now know that abe and jennfer are willing to cheat to win this election
now we can up our efforts even more
he says dont worry this debate has been quite the turning point ,this election is about to get very very interesting
Nic says and so is abes personal life
they laugh


carrie says it meant nothing believe me it meant nothing
Austin says i wasnt expecting this
she says you know i wouldnt hurt you
he says how big of a fool do you think i am
you and rafe have been a team since john was in trouble
i understand
you and rafe are close you have a bond
she says it was one time thing it will never happen again
he says are you sure you are making a promise you can keep

sami and rafe go home
she looks at her wedding picture
he says are you ever going to talk to me
she says what is there to talk about
he says how we can put this behind us
she says i dont think we can

Ej says how can a complete dullard like abe have a more interesting personal life , i listen to the man talk for 2 minutes and i just about fall asleep
why my sister is with him is one of the great mysteries of life
she says are you done ranting
he says no not yet, i find him so dull he could bore a rock into sand
im finished now
she says Abe made 2 mistakes
he got his hands dirty really dirty
and he lied to his loving trusting wife and she believed him
he says i like the way you are thinking
he kisses her

lexi says i hate that i doubted you and im so lucky to be your wife and theo couldnt have asked for a more loving father to look up to
i love you
she says she has to go and pick theo up, thanks jen for everything she is doing for abe , he wouldnt be in the position he is in now if it werent for her
jen says im sure thats not true
she leaves
jen says she is sorry
he says over the years we have been together i never lied to her once till just now

kate says my god and you have known this the whole time
hard to believe no one is going to believe it not at first
i wont breath a word
he says your silence is going to be a moot point
she says do you think bo and hope will open the envelope
he says i warned them against it but Hope is a detective she has to know all the facts no matter what they are
we are back to alices envelope
she says if you think that its something that will hurt you or the family you have to open it if not it will drive you crazy
ill open it if its important ill tell you if it isnt i will throw it in the garbage
stef says if anyone opens it it will me and me alone

hope says this is the sign
gran use to clip sayings from the newspaper and stick it in grandpas book
Bo reads it and it said if not you who?if not now when ?
She says i think she wants me to open the envelope
bo says yes she does thats a perfect sign right there

abe says i chose to lie to lexi i wasnt man enough to own up
i cheated i crossed a line i never thought i would and i will have to pay for it some day
jen says i forced you to cheat
if Ej had won this debate he probably would have won the election
i dont like lying to my friend but its
worth it to keep Ej out of the mayors office
he says im no better than Ej is
she says yes you are
he says i lied to my wife
i looked lexi right in the eyes
and i lied to her if she ever finds out she will never forgive me never

Ej says how about this one
proof of lies major drama starring trusting wife and corrupt husband
nic says thats good
ej says i smell popcorn

she says i hear doors slamming and things breaking
he says those who muck with us get mucked
going to be a sweet victory
my opponent loses the election and also his wife
nic says
the end of lexis marriage could be the one thing that brings her back to the family fold
and you and stefano have been wanting that since i can remember
just give me the word and i will make it happen
he kisses her

kate says she pities Hope if she opens the envelope and finds what you said is in it
it could change a lot of peoples lives
stef says i wonder if the same thing
holds for alices envelope could it be something that could change my life
she says whatever you find is going to be fine you have always been the master of your own destiny
he says till now
who knows whats in the envelope
maybe something thats out of my control

Hope says other secrets lead to good things
Maggie finding out Daniel was her son
and the iou got john out of jail
Bo says
this isnt mrs Hs secret its what stefano had on her, but they think stefano will tell everyone whats in their envelope
this is grans way of beating him to the punch
she opens the envelope at last
and says oh my god no
she drops it and slowly sits down

Carrie says i love you i would never do anything with rafe that would threaten our marriage
he says i want to believe you but
i need the answer to 1 question
do you have feelings for rafe

rafe says you don think we can
of course we can we renewed our vows , we can work things out
she says its too late for that
he says what do you mean i make one little mistake and you write me off i refuse to accept that
she says this is not about you only
i have feelings here too
he says im sorry
we dealt with worse and we will deal with this
she says you deal with it cuz i cant
she takes the picture and throws it across the room it hits door
and it breaks
i want you out , i want you out
rafes face expression ....nothing different,,,same old face

a Dimera trick he planned this

this says the man im married to is,,,,john

john tells marlena he is going to cook her dinner, wants to do something nice for her
she says he always does nice things for her
he is worried about basic black
getting it going again
he would rather spend all his time with her

Hope says it doesnt look like a forgery
bo says it has to be
you are married to me
i dont care what stefano thinks
look at the date its when you were kidnapped and brain washed and
made to think you were princess Gina
Hope says stefano used her for so many sick things back then
Bo says yes and mostly to get marlena away from john ,, which did not work , they got married end of story

he says john would have said something
she says maybe he doesnt know either , thanks to stefano
if it wasnt true why hang on to it

he says no,but
things have not been the same between us for a long time they have been off, just trying to figure out
why we havent been connected what happened

you are making excuses now
he says oh really ,i guess thats why you wanted to rush in to our vow renewals
she says i thought you wanted to do that
he says i did
it seemed a little desperate like you were trying to fix something
fix us, i know exactly when it happened when it all started its when johnny went missing

brady and madison talk about their feelings

their marriage is real and nothing is going to change that nothing

carrie calls marlena
she is upset
mar tells her to tell her whats wrong
carries says i screwed up did something so stupid
mar tells her to stay there she is coming over





Austin goes to his office with a bottle of booze
he is drunk


rafe says when johnny went missing
thats when this started and we never talked about it before
we were so worried about johnny
once he was home safe you were different and im trying to figure out why
she says thinking your son is dead changes a person
he says but it shouldnt have changed us
you apologized that you blamed me
i forgave you but
did you mean it , is that whats going on here
she says
whats going on is that you kissed my sister
johnny has nothing to do with it , you are
changing the subject
he says im not changing the subject its all part of this im not trying to blame you
im trying to fix things
if this didnt happen when johnny went missing, then when
there is a void between us just trying to figure out why

hope tells bo she loves him
you are my whole life nothing could ever change that
what we have can never be broken
if this certificate is real , we have to tell
john and marlena
we have to tell them about this
he says alright lets do it
they leave

abigail takes ausitns bottle away from him
asks whats going on with him
he says i treated myself out with a night with a friend

he wishes thats all it was cuz when your wife tells you she has feeling for another man upset is just the beginning

carrie tells marlena what happened
her and rafe hugged and didnt let go when they should have one of those moments when everything felt right and they end up kissing
sami walk in
she saw them
and then austin
i hurt him so bad
mar says you didnt do anything wrong you didnt mean to hurt anybody, she noticed the
tension between her and Austin at sydneys party
maybe its good to have some time apart
might need some time to sort out what is in her heart
give her time to figure out how you feel about rafe before she talks to Austin
carrie says i dont need any time to figure out how i feel about rafe

sami says me wanting to renew our vows
is just me being desperate and you breaking those vows was
cuz i pulled away from you
what about all the times you pulled away from me
when i took the job with madison you hated that
he says he didnt , just hated her spying for her
she says now you are going to have to
learn how to live with guilt just like the rest
of us
he says our marriage is in real trouble and both of us need to be willing to fight for it
you hear me
she says you keep saying how much you care about me and our family
tell me why you did it,why were you willing to risk everything

madison and brady walk to the square
there are 2 segways

she walks away

bo tells john about stefano and mrs. H secrets and safelty deposit box
he complains they will never see what gran had on stefano
hope shows john the marriage certificate

carrie says i still love Austin but somethings have changed
i knew the first time i felt it
when john was arrested
Austin and her were on different pages
rafe was on her side
carrie said it brought us together and i let it happen
it was so nice to be around someone who felt the same way and i
kept looking for more ways to spend more time with him and less time with Austin
Austin told her she broke his heart and she did and it isnt the first time

Abigail tells Austin to stop drinking
she will stay all night and talk with him
he says you dont know how bad this hurts
she says she knows what its like to hurt
he doesnt deserve this , he is a good person
he says you are amazing
you could have just left me here to pass out on the couch but you didnt, why?
She says you needed me
he says i do
i do need you
she kisses him

mad and brady continue to drive around the square
he says he thought about doing it cuz
she never got a chance to be a kid cuz she had to grew up too fast
wanted her to feel what it was like to be a kid
she said she had fun

they leave
she says he is amazing
someone is watching them

john says do you think this is legitimate
Hope says i have no idea
john says this could be nothing more than a prop, stefano messing with us
no big deal
we will get the marriage annulled
Bo says that might not be so easy
stefano warned us we would be opening Pandoras box if we opened that envelope
we all know nothing is ever simple when it comes to stefano dimera

marlena says
you and Austin have been together a very long time and even the strongest of marriages dynamics can change when that happens we feel confused we begin to ask questions
i need you to be clear what is at stake here
you are married
rafe is married
carrie says to my sister
marlena says right and they are raising children together, not saying there is anything wrong with the feelings you are having
its just the place those feeling can take you
you
you need to make sure what place you want to go
think a long time about that
before you do something you might regret for the rest of your life

Austin stops Abigail and says no no no
she says its alright its ok
they kiss again

sami looks out the window crying
rafe puts his purse on
and says i packed what i thought i need
ill be back later for the rest of my stuff
she doesnt say anything
he says im sorry
you have no idea how sorry i am , i love you
i always will
he opens the door and looks at her
she doesnt look at him
he leaves

She flashes back to kissing him
on the couch
he passed out,when she was taking her clothes off
she tried to wake him
but he didnt wake up
he says im sorry if i hurt your feelings
i drank so much everything is a blur
you are an amazing friend to me and a student i took advantage of you ,im sorry
she says you didnt take advantage of me
last night was really special you have nothing to feel sorry for nothing at all

hope tells bo when it comes to stefano nothing is as simple as it seems
Bo says no matter what happens we are in this together we are a team nothing is going to change that

marlena says i dont believe it ,no that cant be true
john says it might not be true, stefano might be just messing with us
just have to wait and see
she says damn him
he says hey easy girl, like you said we are going to get through this
she says he has tortured us for years how much more do we have to take
he says i dont know but we cant let him get to us,
thats what he wants he is trying to tear us apart

he says you can yell and scream at him all you want , its not going to change our situation
she says im not going to yell and scream
im going to kill him
he says we have to keep cool
she says im so tired of it

carrie says Austin and i love each other so much but we havent had a picture perfect relationship
rafe says they dont exist
she says we had a really long tortured road to the alter
problems started when they came back to salem
he says there was alot of baggage for you 2
she says it was my idea to stay in salem thought it would be good for all of us
this whole work situation thought we would have time to hang out with family

he says i think we have a decision to make

Austin says you know how i feel about you
you are smart and funny
she says i feel the same way about you
he says you have been a loyal friend to me, very grateful
she says its been hard because im your student and because of your wife
now everything has changed we can be together now, one night has changed our whole lives
im so happy

john says life has thrown us curve balls before
she says stefano has
he says we have always come back stronger than before
this is no different , we have
faced a lot worse than this
she says i know ,but its exhausting
we shouldnt have to be worried about someone after us all the time
we have children and grandchildren and they need us
carrie needs us sami needs us Will needs us
oh if he ever tries to come after my grandchildren
he is never going to control us again
what do we do now

Austin says last night was a mistake, i was upset about carrie , had too much to drink

She says all the evil in the world
he says and on the bottom there was hope
stefano may try to sabotage our marriage but he will never comprehend our love and how much we share
i have loved you most of my life
he can try to come between us he cant and he will never win

john says here is what we are going to do
keep on keeping on with our lives regardless of what that document says
she says ill just go to work like my husband isnt married to somebody else
he says if its fake, im still married to the love of my life and
if im married to Hope then we will get a quickie annulment and you and i will have a lavish wedding that the town of salem will be talking about for years to come

she says you dont want me to
he says he just wants her to be happy
and if thats working with rafe

feeling something bad is going to happen

the 4 of us should be together when we get the answers

Austin is sorry he turned his back on her
she says im glad you left last night
i called marlena and she helped me to see things clearly, she helped her to see that all marriages
need work everyday and i was too selfish and wrapped up in my own little world to see how little time i was putting into us
you kept trying to set up dates i wouldnt meet you half way
he says we both made mistakes
lets start over and forget what we have done and focus on making us better
let go and there is going to be
a new beginning for both of us
she says i want that

Bo and Hope meet john and marlena at the pub

married , the past is coming back to haunt them

john and hope and bo and marlena are all together at the apartment

i dont want to talk about politics anymore , i dont want to talk about statistics or polls , id like to talk
about how beautiful my wife is
my pr person can go somewhere else
i dont want to talk about politics

issues, he kisses her
she says
domestic issues are always central to a successful campaign
he says im glad we are on the same page
they kiss


madison loves the flowers
he asks if she is free
she says yes
he says good you have a very important date tonight
he made a reservation
she kisses him

stef says i like the way you put a positive spins on things
mr and mrs john black
bo and hope must be going through hell now and there
nothing to worry about as far as what alice has in the envelope
what you dont know cant hurt you
kate says so we agree not to talk about the elephant in the room
he asks about work
she tells him she is glad she hired sami
she not only brought madison secrets, she has good ideas of her own
Stef says he isnt surprised , she is her mothers daughter

marlena says we all know stefano,the worse thing to do is to underestimate him , sure he thought long and hard about what went into that envelope
Hope says the marriage can be annulled it doesnt mean anything
this isnt worth the paper its printed on
bo says its not like stefano to count on this paper to hold its value
john says might be more to this than we think
bo says we should go talk to him and tell him we have this
john says and see how he reacts to it
marlena says we should all go together

stefs doorbell rings
bo and friends come in to the house
kate says she loves it when friends stop by lets pop some corn
hope says you think this is funny,we dont
stef says you seem upset mrs brady i didn try to warn you
kate says try to be a bit more delicateyou can imagine how devastating this must be to john
stef says i tell my wife everything, its a basis of a good marriage
dont you and john, i mean bo
discuss everything, i mean what a horrible way for him to find out what you did


ej and nicole are in bed now
he says are you
still thinking about politics
she says no just thinking about some of the things we just did might shock your constituency
he says i dont give a damn about my constituency at the moment
just you
she says well thats good thing
he says i wanted you to know
i know how lucky i am to be here with you
to have you in my life
she says this is true
he says im not going to do anything to risk loosing you
she says are you implying that i might
he says , we are cut from the same cloth you and me
can you imagine you imagine you and i the first family of salem , my goodness
she says we will knock them dead

madison gets dressed in a nice dress
they chat about her not taking the ceo job and she says she has no regrets


ej and nic still in bed
she says im hungry
they laugh
he says him too
she says now that you have teken complete advantage of me
its time for you to buy me some dinner
save room for desert
she gets up
he sighs

brady and madison go to the square for dinner
he says this is where we first met
he remembers how she played along so well when he thought she was the hostesses here
the waiter brings champagne
brady wants this to be a night that she will remember
brady makes a toast
to the most beautiful woman i have ever met

Bo says your games arent going to work even if the certificate is valid
stef says of course it is, but you already know that otherwise you would not be here
john says whats in t for you
back when you had hope and me under control you could have done some real damage , but what now after all these years
Hope says bo is my husband ,marlena is johns wife that piece of paper is just an annoying technicality , so as soon as we take care of it , it will be as if it never existed
Stef says but it is whats in your heart that really counts isnt it?
As long as everything is in order,you dont need me now do you
marlena says i dont understand why you think this is great little bargaining chip, we
knew about it, we dealt with it, its ancient history
can be dealt with quite legally
stef says if thats the case there was no reason to lock it up all those years ago
right
if you really believed that you would not be here now

brady says he has something to ask her
she thinks he is trying to get her to work for basic black
he says no nothing to do with business
he feels like he has known her forever
even though it hasnt been that long
he says he gave up on the idea
of finding anyone
he thinks about her all the time
when he wakes up and he always wakes up happy now
no one has ever made him feel the way she does
he gets down on one knee
and shows her a ring
says madison will you marry me


ej and walk in to the square and see brady down on one knee
proposing to madison
nicole looks uncomfortable

madison says this was the last thing i expected
he says i love you
she says i love you too
she stands up and hugs him

ej says did that bother you
she says no why would it
he says nicole?
she says ok a little
he says its ok
kisses her head
she looks so sad

Bo says we are here to find out what you think you are going to gain from all of this
Stef says nothing
did you remember how i tried to convince you not to open the box
Kate says are you 2 kids going to write your own vows this time around?
stef says when you bring up the annulment , it could bring up the other question
john says like what?
Stef says i would love to tell you but no one here wants to hear it
kate says oh no, i do, i cant wait to hear

ej says that bothers you?
She says yes but not because i want to be with brady
they are getting engaged
he says so it bother you brady is getting marred
she says no you know how badly i react to other women being happy
he says but
she isnt going to be happy she is marrying Brady
Nic says she seems happy
he says she is crying, sort of the preview for the rest of her life
nic says she is crying cuz she is thrilled, this is the most wonderful moment in her life filled with love , hope happiness and promises
he says and its all down hill from there

Brady says looks like we have an audience
nic says they see us
Ej says oh really, thats the worse thing about being a politician ,is
you have to go and be nice to people, come on

Hope says what is it you think we dont want to hear
stef says not hear, admitting
john says admitting what?
Stef says the discovery that you and Hope are married will rekindle Bos anxiety bout you having made love to his wife once
and it will also rekindle his anger knowing it didnt come out too good i tried to keep this a secret
so you wouldnt have to worry that hope was thinking about john
when she was making love to you
and that it wasnt too good on your part
Bo says you are a bastard
marlena says stefano we know what you are trying to do and its not going to work this time

stef says what is it that im doing
you are here in my living room,i didnt come seeking you out
marlena i dont want to hurt you and i know how hard that word is thats going
marlena says please dont even reach for it
he says but i know your brain power is
you cant find it in the world that is strong enough to be able to change 2 people , force them to do something they would never do
i cant make them get married unless it was something they really want to do

ej and nicole go over brady
Ej says we couldnt help notice
that you were down on one knee
and you had a ring, i hope congratulations are in order
he shakes bradys hand and says congratulations
Brady thanks him
nic says we hope you both will be very happy , im sure you want to be alone
brady dont forget to change your status
she walks away
Ej follows

brady says i havent got an answer from you yet

john says we know you will do anything to destroy what bo and hope have and what me and marlena have
Hope says you will never have anything like it
not falling for your mind games
kate says you are all protesting a little too much
Stef says marlena you are not bothered that john took sacred vows with Hope and then went through an entire wedding ceremony with you shortly after
bo says they had no idea they were married
stef says would they tell you if they did
you are taking this info so well thinking like what the hell there is nothing to worry about

ej and nic go to a table to eat
nic keeps looking over at brady
EJ says if this is bothering you we can go some place else
she says no,im fine brady is a part of my past i moved on and i dont want to look back

madison says this is all so sudden im overwhelmed
he says its ok take all the time you need
she says im sorry i know you are disappointed
he says you could never disappoint me
he understands , he gets it thought he would never take the step again either
but everything changed when he met he rand fell in love with her
he didnt expect her to say yes tonight
wants her to take her time
she said it was a bit of a surprise but she is happy that he asked her
she is touched and she will
give her answer soon

marlena says lets go
we found out what we came to learn
the situation is what we thought it was its a
sad old man who wants to feel powerful by revisiting his past triumphs
so sad
stef says thats not bad almost believable
Marlena says did you open the envelope and
find out what alice has on you
Hope says he wont tell anyone it will haunt him forever
they leave

Ej and Nicole sit in silence
she keeps looking at brady
EJ says clearly something is bothering you , if it isnt Brady is it me
she says in a way it is

kate says you were magnificent
he says im glad you think so
she says im impressed with the way you stay one step
ahead of your enemies
he says they tried to put up a good front
but by the time they left they were shaken
this is just beginning
there is much more to come that they dont know anything about
the road to the annulment is fraught with peril
by the time they get it maybe they wont want it
stay tuned
kate goes to talk to cook
stefano looks worried

brady and madison go home
she says this is a night ill never forget
she asks him to come in
he says not tonight

ej says it is me
ok
have i done something to disappoint you
she says ej it is not something you can help
ever since i was a little girl i wanted that story book romance
the thing that only happens in fairy tales,where the prince rides up on his white horse and sweeps me off my feet
it only happens in childhood fantasies
he smiles

bo and friends go home
marlena says the worse thing we can do is let him know he has us worried
john gets a call
he says this isnt going to be as easy as i thought

stefano opens his desk drawer
and takes out the envelope
he sits at the desk
and thinks about what Hope said

Brady thinks she needs time alone without distractions
to decide what her answer is going to be
he loves her no matter what
she decides
he kisses her goodnight
she goes in and closes the door
and an old man says hello my darling
i have been waiting for you

Austin still at the square sitting on the couch
brady asks him to join him for a drink
he just proposed to the most amazing woman in the world

she is going to say yes

Ian asks madison whats new
she says nothing he already knows everything that goes on in her life
she works every minute of her life
he asks if victor found a ceo
she says no
he says
hard to find anyone as promising as her
she says i should call victor and take his offer
i really wanted that job
he says dont be a foolish girl, i never lead you astray before
i was doing it for your best interests , if you
do as exactly as i say you wont get in trouble

Carrie says i spoke with a lawyer in almania
explained the situation
the annulment is not possible because
the marriage was consummated
Hope says stefano brainwashed us we didnt know what we were doing
carrie says try explaining that to a judge
bo says there is no way to prove that the marriage was consummated
cant we fudge the truth ?
not like it meant anything
carrie says it was common knowledge that
john and hope though zack was their child
Marlena says cant lie about it
stef would be on the next plane setting the court straight, not worth the energy
carrie says they can file for a divorce

Will says so you didnt tell him
rafe says i have no idea what you are talking about
Sami says
Will has decided to move out and get his own apartment
rafe says what does that have to do with ej
Sami says ej is paying for the apartment and we were discussing that
you might not be happy about it
knowing what ej has done to all of us
rafe says Will is that true
Will says yeah thats true
but surprise , surprise, mom is leaving out some very crucial details

Mad says i appreciate everything you done for me over the years and i think its
time for me to start making decisions on my own
he says something is different about you,,,you cut your hair

Austin says maybe we use to be but life happens
brady says i know i have experience with that
Austin says thats a part of marriage it has ups and downs
right now we are down but
we can be great again

abi tells melanie how great her and her guy gets along, they have
a natural connection
she thinks her and chad would make a great couple
if they want to be together they should and she would be happy for them

Carrie says because of the countrys strict laws they have to travel to almania and take care of it in person
the judge will review the case in order to grant the divorce
they will have to stay in the country during the review
for a minimum of 2 weeks

Will says in not surprised that you would try and make me look like the bad guy here
its true ej is paying my rent but she left out why
rafe says ok you tell me
Will says because
i earned it
i have been working my ass off for the guy who everybody thinks is the enemy, but i dont care cuz i like my internship
rafe says sure working for ej has it perks but you are
making a huge mistake in trusting the guy
Will says i never said i trusted him but the longer i work for him the longer i get to stay out of this place, but you like living here so
what made you move out
sami says thats between rafe and me

my mom was always the one trying to steal the man away from

rafe says she is the best thing thats ever happened to me , so are you kids sorry
to drag you in to this
Will says im involved
rafe says im going to fix this somehow ill make this up to her

mel says maybe its just a
misunderstanding
Abi says how could he do this to me
he knows how i feel about him
i thought he was as committed as i was
melanie says did you sleep together
abi says yeah we did
mel hugs her

bo tells roman the whole story
alice and stefano were blackmailing each other
they will never know what alice had on stefano
roman says doesnt understand how this happened
bo says who does
they exchanged vows while they were in alamania
when stefano had control over them

A policeman brings in a prek who works for one of the top guys on their most wanted list ,while they are chatting
roman tells bo to see what he can find out on the perk
bo tells him to fill him in
give him a reason not to throw the book at him
tells him to play it smart instead of going to prison this time
bo goes out and talks to roman
about the guy
he was shaking down a a store owner
been arrested twice
going for 3 now
might be nervous enough to roll over on his boss
they might have a shot at the head guy maroney
roman says that name would be a big get for abes crimes program
right before the election
tomorrow

brady says does this guy have something on you
why arent you saying anything
tell me what is going on here

Bo talks to the perk
days of a free man are over
victim willing to testify
long term residence of state pen
another option you can make a deal
tell us who you are working for
tell us about maroney
da will cut a deal
perk says ill be a dead man for sure
bo says witness protection program
bo leaves and talks to roman
roman says time to bring rafe and carrie
in on this
bo tells him they are not working together anymore

Will says dont blame yourself
rafe says how can i not,i stood up and made a vow to your mother, a promise that should count for something, it has meaning
Will says you werent unfaithful
a kiss is a kiss if you are going to be married to my mom
you cant sweat the small stuff
she has no right to make you do that

rafe says i know your mother has made mistakes we all have, but i dont consider this small stuff, i let her down
i let you kids down
these vows meant something
Will says stop it

carrie and austin go back to their hotel room
she tells him she is sorry
he tells her to stop saying that
it took 2 of us to get us where we are
we are here alone like it should be
we are going to fix this if we just love each other enough
they kiss

abi and melanie go back to her house
mel says did you know he was married
Abi says yes i did but the
marriage was in trouble,she didnt understand him, took him for granted
then when she really hurt him, we came together
i wanted to help him he was so grateful
i knew what he needed and i gave it to him
i kept my distance cuz i knew he was married
last night when he found out what she had done it was over
i dont understand how he can be with carrie now
melanie says carrie?
Are you talking about austin and carrie ?

brady this wasnt supposed to happen like this
so you know this man
he says you are married
Ian says it sounds like you have connections to my wife
Brady says i didnt know about you
and you clearly had no idea about me

bo tells roman the suspect is about to roll on maroney
then roman gets a call saying maroney got to the vic he isnt willing to go on record anymore
friend in lock up gets loose
bo wants another shot on him
cant give up
bo gets aggressive
and wants to go after him
roman says he knows he is frustrated bout the whole john and hope thing and wants to take it out on the suspect but he is not stefano
Bo says you are right
there is more to this situation
there always is when stefano is involved
roman says this anger at stefano isnt going to help us get maroney

mel says Austin?
abi says its something that has been building for a long time
carrie hasnt been around she works all the time
never had any time for Austin and it hurt him
mel says they are married
abi says i never thought this would be me
never started like this thought of him as a friend , a real nice guy
mel says a really hot nice guy
abi says the more time we spent together it started to build, we had a connection both of us knew it was there
we finally made love and it was everything i knew it would be , then
to go back to her after that,i
dont understand how he could hurt me like this



rafe says sorry
i keep saying i dont want to drag you in to this mess but i keep doing it
Will says its ok, you are upset
rafe says i want to make things right with your mom
Will says he cant say anything else to help
he has to go and get a permit for the get out the vote rally for EJ
rafe says about that
you know you are working with ej accepting all these gifts from him im worried about you
Will says dont be i know what im doing and
having that apartment is like a gift from god right now i cant stay at the loft
rafe offers him a lift
he has to go down to the station


Ian says you were right young man i dont know you but my
instincts are telling me a great deal
i go away, its unavoidable
when i get back
this is what greets me
is it true is this man your lover
you betrayed me?

rafe and will at station
will is looking for the permit office, they run in to roman

rafe goes in to talk to bo
bo says he heard about him and carrie not working together anymore

roman asks Will about paper work from sonny, he is
applying for a business permit for the coffee place
tell sonny he can come to him if he has any trouble
Will wonders why Sonny would need to come to roman
roman says salem is a pretty tolerant town , have a lot of smart people who live here , but we also have a lot of
jerks and trouble makers
sonny is out and not shy about it
now that he is opening a business
people might not accept it
when a business opens if people think the business is going to cater to a certain clientele,that they dont approve of , even if thats not the case trouble can follow
if anything like that does happen come to him
Will says you know its 2012
roman says i hate it but that is reality
even in 2012

abi thinking about ausitn
crying
mel bring ice cream for them to eat
mel says she is glad that they worked everything out
feels like friends again
you shouldnt be alone right now
you are not going ot be alone

carrie and ausitn continue to kiss
in bed
he looks at her, she says i think its too soon
he says he doesnt want to force it but he wants her back
she wants it too
but we have a lot to put behind us
we need to realize what we almost lost before we move forward
he has a flashback of talking to abi
he says yeah it makes sense

carrie and Austin
lay on the bed together

bo wants to know about him and carrie, they
work well together what happened?
Rafe says its complicated
bo says the same words carrie used
rafe says its between carrie and me
bo wants to know
it was his idea to give them the job
counting on their help
rafe says its just not a good idea for carrie and me to be together right now
we kissed we made out it was a huge mistake
sami and austin walked in on us
it was a huge mess
roman walks in and says what the hell

brady says i dont know who you are or what you are doing here and im
tired of you doing all the talking, this is between her and me, so butt out
i proposed to you to day
congrats but that is unfortunate
brady says i need to know right now
is this man your husband
brady i need to explain

roman says please tell me i didnt hear you say that you kissed your wifes sister
why the hell am i not rearranging your face right now and
what did sami do to deserve this
she and carrie had troubles for a long time , they were now working it out
rafe says i know i messed up
roman says did you think, do you think
rafe says im going to fix this
roman says well you damn well better
he leaves
bo pats romans shoulder

carrie says should we go out and eat
he says i just want to be here with you just the 2 of us and nobody else

abi sits by the fire
melanie joins her
asks is she can do anything for her get her anything
Austin all i want is Austin ,he doesn t want me

brady says its true?
she says i need you to let me explain
he say get away form me

Austin tells abi she is important to him
not trying to make excuses for what happened

he says i had too much to drink, not thinking,i was hurt and you were
she says and i was just there?

Ej gets angry and says what were you thinking?
telling your mother that you saw what
happened between the 2 of us
Will says it kind of just happened
Ej grabs him and says what it just happened , the one thing you werent supposed to say just happened to get out of your mouth
Will says sorry
Ej says William sorry doesnt cut it
Will says what else do you want me to say
she knew something was bugging me
Ej is holding Will by the face
he yells lie
Will says i tired that
she wouldnt let me leave
i know it was a mistake thats why im telling you
Ej says if Nicole finds out i had sex with your mother
Will says she isnt i promise
ej says your promises dont mean very much to me at the moment
Will says this is the last thing my mom wants is for this to get out
she isnt going to tell anybody

sami says no you dont get to use my past against me ,i have changed , i have grown up since then but you are still the same
spoiled brat, had everything growing up
perfect grades, perfect hair, perfect life
carrie says i wouldnt of had a life at all if it were up to you ,you have been nothing but an insecure jealous , manipulative witch
sami says what choice did i have up against you
carrie says this competition has always been in your head you did everything to make it real
you still are


asking austin to move in to the loft with you
sami says i was trying to be nice
he didnt have anyhwere else to go while you were half way around the world
carrie says i was helping john
sami says of course john is more important than your husband
no wonder my mother likes you best
carrie says tell the truth once in your life
you saw an opportunity to hurt me
sami says no i wanted to do something nice for Austin
thought it would be nice if he got to know my kids
carrie says who is lying now, thats all you know how to do
you lied about getting in to bed with Austin
lied about Will being his child, lied about our ability to have children , no defence sami , good
now im just getting started

abi says why would you go back to carrie after what she did to you
he says we both made mistakes
my marriage is worth fighting for
i love my wife
she says how could you make love to me
maybe you dont remember it but i do the night meant something to me and you want to act like it never happened cuz you think you owe it to carrie
he says i owe it to her cuz she is my wife
she says so you just used me i was easy to you
he says no thats not what happened
she says do you love me at all?
Oh my god
he says abi i
she says dont say you are sorry you are not im such an idiot thought you cared about me
she runs off

Abe tells jen he decided not to do it
even though its tempting

already compromised his principles if he goes as far as to
steal the election out right ,im no better than ej
i want to be the man my wife sees when she looks at me

carrrie says how can you attack me for going after your husband
when all the times and all the ways you went after mine when are you going to stop blaming
me for everything , you bring this stuff on your self
you are the most self destructive person i know
sami says this time you screwed up and you are going to answer to Austin when he sees you cant hide the truth
carrie says what truth is that
sami says that you are whore,need proof
look at the way you threw yourself at rafe just like the way you threw yourself at mike horton this time when Austin leaves you it will be for good
austin comes in and says what the hell is going on in here

john tells mar do you have any doubts about my love for you
she says no none
he says hope and i were under stefanos control
she says
you had a relationship with Hope you thought you were in love with her, the feelings felt real
you and Hope shared something
he says no what i shre with you is the only thing that is real
sef cant change that
not with a piece of paper that is all he has
she says is it the worse thing we can do is underestimate stefano
his games are complex
he plots them out years in advance
and by the time the victim finds out its too late

chad asks Melanie to go see a movie
tonight
their first date

ej sits down ,Will sits beside him
Will says
my mom isnt going to tell anyone dont worry
ej says how can you be so sure about your own little slip up that its not just going to come out in the heat of the moment
will says cuz there is
no one else for her to tell
rafe moved out
ej says she told him?
Will says no he has no idea
Ej says why did he move out
Will says she kicked him out
she saw him kissing Carrie
Ej says she really
Will says yes i guess she forget she had sex with you which in my opinion is a lot worse
ej says your mothers view in what constitutes a personal slight comes with a personal bias

Will says yeah so anyway
point made she isnt going to tell Nicole
Ej calms down and says
i hope so for your sake
he leaves
Will smiles

Austin says what are you doing here sami
sami says i came here to tell carrie how i feel

the poor me thing isnt working i dont buy it and Austin isnt going to buy it ether
Austin says i dont need you to speak for me
we decided to put what happened, and move past it together
sami is shocked

john and marlena make out on the couch

Nicole on phone says its Nicole no that cant happen it will cost Ej the election i dont know what you should do ,ill have to call you back

she says everything is going as it should

abe says i cant let this election change who i am i already crossed the line
Jen says i knew you would make the right decision
lexi joins them
he says i was telling jen how much your faith in me means to me


Sami says are you insane staying with her after this , it wasnt a mistake you didnt see them kissing i did
Austin says you need to leave
Sami says im not going anywhere

she says stop kissing my sister
she runs out
he chases her
he says can we just talk
she says make it fast
he says im sorry i kissed carrie it was the wrong thing to do i will be sorry till the end of time
i will keep saying it till you understand that im truly sorry
she says i realize there were 2 of you i dont blame you for it, not entirely in fact i dont even blame you mostly
i know what carrie is capable of i went to tell her
i went to see her but unlike you she wasnt as apologetic as you are but she loves to hurt me unlike you
he says i doubt that
she says what, this is not the time to defend carrie to me
he says i dont want to fight i want to fix this i want to go home and be with you and the kids
she says do you have feelings for her ?
he says i love you,you are my wife, my commitment is with you and my family
she says nice sediment
but not an answer
to the question
do you have feelings for my sister yes or no
he doesnt say anything
she says i guess thats my answer

Austin tells jack and abi they are sorry for
interrupting
carrie says abi is upset
jack says we were having a father -daughter valentines day all guys suck heart to heart
Abi says she is lucky to have her dad to talk to about this kinds of stuff
jack says i wish you would let me read the riot act to the guy who broke your heart

ian almost kisses her
she says you know im married
he says does that mean you arent going to kiss me?
She says not a chance
he says thats noble of you
she says im a devoted wife
he says who is the lucky man
she says stefano dimera
he sent me those flowers
he says they are real
what an old world romantic
she says if he realizes you came near me you would be dead
he says he is older than you isnt he
not your usual taste in men
she says dont say it
he says you dont need a sugar daddy
hard to imagine him satisfying
you
she goes to slap him
he grabs hand and kisses it

mad says i love you
he says if you loved me you would have told me the truth
she says now you know
he says i dont know cuz you told me
i came back to the hotel, i wanted to put the ring on your finger and i walk in the room there is a guy there and he told me and he loved telling me he was so smug about it

she says im sorry, i
dont want to lose you
no matter this is my fault
but i love you so much
you know i do
you feel it
Brady says why havent you left him were you going to say yes and be married to both of us
she says you know i wouldnt do that
he says i dont know you anymore
i worked hard to get to know you
when i uncovered it ,it was a lie,now im a fool
you got me i was an easy target
i should have seen the signs coming
anyone capable of what you did with sami
certainty a woman like that is capable of lying to the man that fell in love with her

kate says you are a bastard
he says you loved that about me
she says absence made the heart grow cold
this isnt fun
he says say it like you mean it,your arms are telling me something different

carrie tells abi she is sorry she has been down that road and knows how much it hurts
she hugs her
Austin says its rude we should give them privacy
carrie says abi works for you , it would be nice if she knew she had your support
he says so sorry you are hurting
carrie says abi where did you meet this guy
she says school
Austin looks uncomfortable

sami says if it were anyone else but carrie it would be different you have no idea about our history , all the relationships she has ruined
she took Dustin away from me thats why she is with him now but thats not enough
she has to take you away from me too
he says thats not true
she says are you going to defend her again to me
he says i love you thats why i married you
she says it was carrie
and i cant get the image of you kissing her out of my mind
she ruined everything
i cant get past it
ever

kate says you are as arrogant and self absorbed as ever i dont know why i ever put up with you
he touches her face and says
i never should have let you go

mad says i stopped that plan with sami
he says cuz i told you i didnt like it , you backtracked when your back is up against the wall, you are a coward
lying is like 2nd nature to you
go be with your husband and leave me the hell alone

sami says if it were anyone else anyone besides her , why couldnt you have inappropriate feelings for some woman i dont know
it doesnt matter about carrie or any of it
i saw you and i know you well enough to know, you wouldnt kiss anyone like that unless you had feelings for them
and i dont know how you expect me to be with you knowing that.
she starts to leave and
he grabs her

Austin says abi i care about you very much im sure this guy didnt mean to hurt you
abi says but it still happened
carrie gives her a hug

jack says to Austin guys try to help they manage to screw things up
abi isnt real chatty with her mom right now
maybe good for carrie to help
carrie says ill try
tell me about this idiot
did he make promises to you he couldnt keep?

Ian says I hope to see you again
she says how long you staying
he says not leaving moved here
not Paris but it does have you
he leaves
kate looks at the flowers

mad says dont ask me to leave
he says get out and dont come back
if you see me on the street turn around walk the other way
pretend that i have never existed thats what im going to do
go
she cries and leaves

abi says carrie you want me to tell you about my problems so sweet of you
she keeps looking at Austin when talking to carrie
carrie says i care about you so does Austin
Austin says maybe you should talk to someone your own age
abi says she isnt that much older than me
and i would appreciate her perspective
you are the perfect person to help me understand why this guy did what he did

rafe says i married you for better or worse and its
not over until we both say its over and i will never ever say that
cuz blue eyes
you are my everything till death do us part
he kisses her
she kisses him back
then he walks away

Skye's Spoiler Report - Thursday, February 16

carrie and abi continue to talk at the square
Austin feeling uncomfy
carrie tells her ,her mother helped her a lot when she was her age

lexi and abe talk outside the pub
lexi says i dont think anyone would vote for ej
she looks through the pub window at jennifer talking with a guy she never saw before says it looks serious

jen in the pub
talking with her contact
he says does the mayor want to beat
EJ dimera
she says you know he does
he says want me to pull the trigger?


Ej and stefano at home watching tv
Stef turns off the tv
Ej says the polls havent closed yet
Nicole is on the phone
Ej asks who she is talking to
she says my guy is going to text me before they go live with the returns
kate is there
brings stefano something to eat
Ej asks Nicole if they had any information yet
she says just the exit polls im having the staff conduct
he says we make a good team you and i,,,he kisses her
she says wow i have been kissed by the next mayor of this fair city
stef says you sound very sure of yourself but the truth is you havent done anything to make sure he wins

nic says if you are referring to the fact that i didnt take you up on your offer to buy the election
Ej says of course he is referring to that
Nic says well EJ didnt need that kind of help
he is a great candidate, we have run a good clean campaign
abes a great guy but
stef says that is debatable
nic says salem needs a mayor who can get things done
kate says you dont have to campaign, we already voted for the man
stef says this plan of yours of playing by the rules , we are going to have to wait and see what happens
nic says the only chance Ej had was to distance himself from you
Ej says she is right i cant afford a hint of a scandal
Abe is going to be a one term mayor and there is nothing he or his little team can do about that
Stef says we will see

abe says maybe she is setting up an interview
Lexi says yeah the man who kicked ej Dimeras butt
abe says he is your brother
she says i do love him but i wouldnt vote EJ for dog catcher
she gets a call
and goes to take it
he watches jen

jen says i would do anything to make sure abe wins but
abe doesnt want to rig the vote
he says ok i just hope you arent making a mistake
exit polls dont look good. If you
change your mind you know how to reach me, he leaves
abe comes in and says bad news?

Jack asks Austin to take a walk with him and let the ladies talk
jack tells abi he is going to check with her mom
abi tells Austin he doesnt have to go
you should hear what i want to tell carrie
since we work together
carrie says you might know the guy who broke her heart

nic talks to will on the phone
in foyer
kate tells her she appreciates her and Ej making a job for Will
nic says Ej wants to take him under his wing
Kate laughs says i would like to see samis face if she heard that
my son wouldnt be too keen on it either, but this is going to give me a chance to see my grandson on a regular basis
he thrived when he lived here
maybe Ej would be a good influence on him
you are a good influence on Ej as well
nic says i got the Kate Roberts Dimera stamp of approval
Kate says dont get all chocked up about it
just because i say you are a good influence on Ej doesnt mean i changed my impression of you , im just
giving you your due
i think ej has fallen in love with you
which makes him a hell of a lot easier to get along with
nic says i cant stomach you either, but you are a good influence on stefano, he seems more civilized now

Ej sits with stef on couch
he says can we put the sound back on the tv now
stef says no there is no breaking news
Ej says lets talk then
stef says oh talk
ej says i know you hated the fact i kept you in the background , but you have a rather colourful reputation
more so even than me , it was important that you were seen to move into a more genteel retirement
stef says its better for the dimera brand i get it
ej says im not just doing this for me this is not to get custody of my children , this is for you as well
you think im that excited about being mayor of salem?
Please...he laughs
but its a first step then we can go to governor
stef says what you are trying to do to make things legitimate for the family
that is very honourable
ej says it would have been easier if john black had stayed in prison
its true , if i was still pursing the class action suit against him
Abe wouldnt be able to go out there on his little soap box and tell everybody that the reason that i wish to become mayor was so that i can make the rich people richer and when i find out how john got out of jail let me tell you something
stef says will you forget about john he is not going to help you get elected
you will do it on your own good name
kate comes in and says good name
you are not becoming a pillar of the community are you
i had such high hopes for you my love
ej says dont worry ,,,,mummy , he winks ,,despite my public persona , i stop at nothing to get what i want and abe knows it


Abe says to Jen ,what did he tell you
she says my contact covers the north side
you are falling behind in exit polls
but most people arent honest at the exit polls ,they want stefano to think they didnt go on record saying
they voted against his son
its not over yet
he says the idea of ej winning this thing
Lexi comes back and Abe tells her
ej is ahead in exit polls
she says so that could change in a heartbeat
he says we might have to get use to the idea i could lose
she says no way the people in this town are going to let my father and brother control the politics here
she leaves to check on theo
abe says wish we handled a few thing differently
jen says about the debate i feel uncomfortable about that too but it helped us ,you are running against the
heir to the crime syndicate
that was the first time we ever strayed from the straight and narrow
if you lose it doesnt matter, we fought
the good fight


lexi and jen go to the square
they wonder where abe is
think he wanted to be alone
lexi says how can anyone vote for Ej he had to give up custody of his children because of the way he lives his life
lexi is worried
she says how could the people vote off a good man
jen says we have to keep the faith
jack walks by says all ready for a victory party
lexi leaves
Jen says she is so nervous
jack says abe is going to win this thing
he tells her abi is talking to carrie, she
needs some advice
she was seeing someone after chad and he broke her heart, she is
getting some words of wisdom from an older woman
jen says she could have talked to me
he says you are her mother and she is still mad at you about the mad world thing


Austin sits with carrie and abi
abi says i was still with chad when i met him i didnt want to like him but i couldnt help myself
he is older and he got to me , he seemed interested in everything i had to say
when we were together i lost track of time
when we were apart i couldnt stop thinking of being with him , its
not a crush
i thought he was the one
carrie says did he say he felt the same way
abi says yeah he did
but then i saw him kissing someone else

Ej looks at his computer
stef says once you are declared winner
i hope you dont forget your sister is married to mr.carver , she is going to be disappointed and Theo
they are very important to me
Ej says to me too of course i will be sensitive to Lexi but she has to realize
abes time has come and gone

nicole says they are ready to announce the winner

abe and lexi at the square
abe says make sure Theos generation is not worse off than we are
Lexi says thats what will happen if Ej is mayor, people know that
he says you are right i think im going to win this thing

jack and jen join them
Jen gets the call

Nicole gets the call from her guy



carrie says this guy was seeing someone else and you didnt know
abi says i knew but he lead me to believe it was over with her
he was sweet to me
i got the feeling he loved me the same way i loved him, turned out he just wanted one thing, i feel stupid
carrie says no, you were in love
he is older he has been around, this is on him , she looks at Austin and says
can you believe this what an ass
Austin says you can say that again


ej says so
nic says im on hold
he says who won

Jen gets off the phone and says
it was close really closer than anyone predicted but you did it Mr. mayor you won
they cheer
they are happy

nic gets off the phone and says
im so sorry
Ej says what?
No, there has to be a mistake
she says the election committee are about to announce it on tv
kate says i thought you said you were sure ej would win
stef says she doesnt know what the hell she is talking about
Ej says this is not possible Nicole

abi gets up carrie asks Austin if he is going to say anything
he says from a guys perspective maybe
he is not as calculating as he sounds
maybe he didnt realize he was leading you on maybe he didnt mean to let things get too far
sometimes guys get carried away too
abi says the first time he kissed me
i could hardly breath, i know he felt the same way
he wasnt thinking about anyone else but me
Austin says maybe he realized he couldnt destroy what he had with the other woman
carrie says why are you defending this jerk
he says im not i just want abi to know she didnt do anything wrong
abi says so its fine he used me and threw me away and went on with his
happy life
im still in love with him what am i supposed to do?


ej says well
that was not supposed to happen
stef says so all the insurance
that you gave me that you dont need my help, and the election was a forgone conclusion all of
thats all wrong now huh
ej says i thought everything was under control ,in place
stef says and yet you lost
so somebody must have dropped the ball what i want to know, what are you going to do about it ?
Nic says i dont know im going to get some answers ,,,she leaves
Stef says sure
exit polls right ? finding out how many people vote sure good
ej says yeah yeah its not as effective as bribery ,threats and intimidation
stef says sometimes the old ways are the best ways
Ej says i will find out what happened
stef says i hope so cuz
you loosing this is a real knockdown
EJ yells you think i dont know that
stef says you did this not only for yourself , you also did it for your children and for me , dont tell me
i dont want people going around saying Stefano Dimeras son is not enough on the ball to become the mayor of this dinky little town
kate says stefano stop
he says no your idea for the family was a geat one but
what did yo do ?you put it in the hands of a martini -swilling bimbo
cuz you have been in bed with her
EJ says thats enough
Stef says im just getting started
Elvis you botched it up from top to bottom

abe calls theo
tells him the news
gives the phone to lexi
tells him to watch daddys speech on tv tonight
jack says he is proud of them
jack and jen leave
abe tells lexi she was right
she says sometimes playing by the rules it actually works
she goes to call the hospital

a man comes over to abe
he says he is the reporter
friend of jens
guy who got him the debate questions
sorry he couldnt get the fake questions to Dimera but he was
glad he was able to send Ej the fake questions all on his own
lexi over hears the conversation
she says please just tell me what he said wasnt true

carrie tells abi of course she feels used by the guy
Austin says maybe the guy feels horrible himself maybe he didnt have a chance to explain himself
abi says im really hurt he wants to pretend im a mistake, he wants to sweep it under the rug and forget about
it ,i wanted to spend the rest of my life with him

ej says im not going to stand here and listen to you tell me i told you so
Stef says what are you going to do
ej says same thing that i always do
find out what happened and see what i can salvage
Stef says maybe abe can appoint you to the school board
ej leaves
Kate says you were pretty tough on him
Stef says every time that
he asks to be on his own he lets me down
Kate says that class action suit was part of his strategy and it was not his fault that john black managed to walk
on the charges
Stef says why are you sticking up for Elvis
this is something he could have taken in his stride he could have proved that he was the man to run this town instead of being a lapdog to the bradys and the other bunch, what ever the hell their names are
kate says the brady and the hortons
do things their way , we do things our way , but what ever happened to Ej today this is still his family

Nicole on the phone in the foyer saying ,look you told me there would be no surprises you fix this or you deal with me

lexi says what ej and nicole said was true
you got the debate questions in advance
abe says we didnt feel we had a choice
she says i cant believe this
Abe says he was going to go all out
we had to make a preemptive strike
ej would have looked all polished and prepared and i would have looked like a
she says like an honest man

abe says im sick of ejs dirty tricks
for once i wanted to go one on one
she says i told theo doing the right thing, acting with honesty
worked told him thats what you did, it was a lie
you lied to the people who voted for you and you lied to me
he says i can make you understand
jen comes and says ready for your victory speech
lexi says you better go
she looks pissed

carrie says i dont think you are dumb for falling in love this guy is not worth shedding tears over
you deserve so much better
i feel sorry for the other woman
this guy she is with is complete scum
hugs abi and abi gives Austin a look

stef and Ej watch abes speech on tv

abe thanks everyone for coming
filled with gratitude grateful to serve as mayor for 4 more years
grateful for the support
of jen and her staff
thank you for helping me
and my partner for life the woman who stands beside this man, lexi carver
they all clap
he wants her to come up with him
she wont go up

Kate says why is she just standing there
ej says she probably cant believe what happened
stef says i wish could be happy for her
nic comes in and stands beside Ej
he says that should have been us
she says it will be us sooner than you think

i looked up to you
but not anymore

brady says so Ian married you but didnt love you
she says he can be loving but he didnt love me
i was young
he seemed wonderful

there is a side of Ian thats nothing but cold and controlling
he had other women lots of other women
i was a trophy wife, didn't have a say in what happened or with who
the other women were just play things
except one woman he put above all the rest couldnt let her go
and kate dimera was that woman
she didnt know about me but i knew about her

Kate says you always do the same thing
think ill bend to your every whim
but im not the same woman anymore
i have a lot more self respect
a backbone, i know you will go find other women
i dont want any of that anymore
he says you are wrong its never been the same since you
no other woman made me feel the way you do
there had been others
it has always been you
letting you go was the biggest mistake of my life

mad says it was humiliating the way he carried on with kate
she didnt understand what it was about kate
he convinced her it was her fault
brady says she isnt afraid of anyone she stands up to everyone but Ian
she says thats the way it has always been
and she cant change it
he expects her to be that way
brady says thats not who she is
she says she tried to change things
she owes him so much and he knows it
when he is not around she reminds herself to be strong
most of the time it works
brady says when ian walks thru the door the woman he knows disappears

abe gets a call from jen
he tells Lexi that Ej won the election
they are announcing it in the morning
there is going to be an investigation
i have a lot to make up for
i have to fix this make it better
i made a mess of things
but not going to let this ruin everything we worked so hard for
she says the marriage i thought we had doesnt exist
he says we are a family
for better or worse
right now its a heck of a lot of worse
but i need you to say you will stay
she says no its too late

nic says word is getting around you have been elected mayor
he says i should start working on my acceptance speech ,i started one but put it to one side
she says i put it upstairs with a few other things
he says of course you did cuz you are wonderful ,i owe all of this to you
just think of all the new ways im going to have to show you how grateful i am
she says but after you write your speech ,go get a head start i need to make a quick call
he leaves
she looks worried
sits on the coffee table

lexi says did you think i decided to leave on a whim that im just reacting out of anger
i did think this through , you were so focused on beating ej you became what you were so hellbent on destroying
you fixed the debate
you rigged the election
he says i needed you to understand
she says i needed you to be the man i married i defended you to my family you made me look like a fool
to find out underneath all of your moral
posturing, you are just like them , it
makes me sick

Ej is in his bedroom
looking at champagne bottle
nic comes in dressed in a black neglige
she says are you ready to perform your first act as mayor, she sits on the bed
he kisses her

brady says i get it Ian has this effect on you this negative impact on your life
why didnt you tell me
she says i couldnt
i knew you were different from the minute i met you, you are a good man
i tried to fight it
all those times you kept coming and i kept pushing you away, it
felt so good being with you
i just lost control of myself you became the thing i couldnt lose
if i told you about ian thats what would happen

kate tells Ian he is good
he says you are better
she says i know thats why im not going to fall for your act again ,never again
there is a whole,world out there full of naive woman, go find them, im not interested anymore in what you have to offer

Ej and nicole sit on the bed with the champagne
he says lets make a toast
to you
putting you in charge of my campaign was one of the smartest decisions that i have ever made
second only to one other very smart decision i made
bringing you back into my life
they drink
she unbuttons the rest of his shirt and rubs her hands over his chest and unbuckles his belt
she kisses his chest
then his lips
he throws his glass down
and pushes her down and kisses her
the glass shatters on the floor

ian says god i missed you
we get better with time
i respect your position i respect this resolve
you have to stay true to your marriage
i also know you can remember how well we fit together
and i look forward to seeing just how long your resolve holds out
he leaves

mad says there is no love between me and Ian, there is nothing between us but humiliation and pain
he says thats something we have in common
she says im sorry i hurt you
its over with ian i despise everything about him
he says that doesnt tell me what i need to know the most
i can understand how things got so complicated but why are you still with him
why you didnt try to get a divorce
ian walks in and says excellent question mr black
she has tried and she has failed she will fail again if she tries again
im never going to let Madison go ,divorce is not an option

kate comes home hollering out to stefano
sees the letter he left for her
on the chess table
she opens it
and it says i must leave for a short time ill be in touch soon
she has an Ian flashback

Lexi says how did this happen to us i woke up this morning and i knew my life
he says we can slow this down
she says no i made up my mind im not changing it
im taking theo
he says no
she says im going someplace where i can think about things
he says if anybody has to go
it should be me
i dont want to disrupt theos routine he wont understand so i will go
unless you tell me to stay
she doesnt say anything
he leaves the bedroom
she cries

Ej is sleeping in his bed ,
Nicole is down in the living room on her phone, she says its me
i didnt tell Ej what you did
but we both know the truth and we need to talk.

you cheated on daddy walked out on our family
im the one who witnessed it at 15 years old , i had to see that
and you didnt try to save your marriage you walked out on him went with john , started a new a family and left us all behind and never looked back
mar says your father moved on
why cant you do the same thing
sami says i bet that would be nice to forget it ever happened
you wouldnt have to face what you did
Mar says i faced my demons
Sami says literally
mar says cute what about you
sami says im looking at them
mar says i dont think so , try looking in the mirror
i will no longer let what happened between john and me be an excuse for your selfish, thoughtless, irresponsible behaviour
its about time you grew up



jen says you are so quiet
he says i dont do compliments well
she says when you came back you could have let the whole situation destroy you and you didnt
and all you wanted was for me
to be here for you and i wasnt, im so sorry
he says its what got me through
she says you weer strong and you stayed strong
seeing this change in you, seeing the effort you made for our children and me , it makes me realize how much you mean to me
i love you


rafe says so i heard you were helping john and hope with the divorce
she says im doing what i can but it has been one road block after another
he says i have an old buddy in the FBI in D.C. i will call him and see if he can pull some strings for you
we are still partners even though we arent working together still got your back

Austin says what happened between us was a mistake , i was drunk, i was upset and i took advantage
im sorry,
i love my wife
you are a wonderful girl but i love her not you
so sorry if i wasnt clear
sorry i let things get out of hand im being clear now
there can never be anything between us
you are stuck with me for the rest of this semester and
i will make it as easy as possible
ill schedule your hours when im not around
next semester i will find you any job on campus that you want
she says what will you tell them
im a hard working young eager student or tell them im an easy lay

he says i know you are hurt
she says you lead me to believe your marriage was over
so you could get into my pants
everything you ever told me has been a lie

Sami says tell me how you really feel
Mar says it may sound harsh but its the truth and its time you heard it
sami says i dont have to listen to this ,i dont owe you anything
Mar says no you dont but you owe your children something
Sami says so now you think im a bad parent
Mar says its time for you to stop being so selfish, time to take responsibility for your own actions , i know you have
gone thru hell to protect your children , but
rafe loves them and they love him if you hurt him you will be hurting them too
sami says what do i do let it go and accept the fact he has feelings for Carrie , let it go that he cheated on me
is it not possible for you to ever take my side
Mar says im not taking sides
Sami says at least i dont lie to my children
Mar says really
i would like you to take a long hard look at yourself and tell me if you like what you see

rafe tells carrie he couldnt help her but he will
keep bugging his friend
at the fbi
he gets up to go
she says are you leaving already

Sami says you are a hypocrite
you look in the mirror and tell me if you like what you see
Mar says i have many times
and if i could take back what happened i would do it , if i could take back causing you that much pain , i would do it in a moment
but i cant
all you have been thru doesnt give you the right to hurt the people who love you esp. Rafe
he made a mistake, he regrets it and he loves you more than the world but you are so
filled with self pity and rage that you cant see the best thing that ever happened to you is about to walk out that door
Sami says you let daddy walk out that door
Mar says every mistake that i have made in my life are the same mistakes you are making right now

jack says you and the kids mean the the world to me
these last few months made me look at our relationship and my role as a father in a whole new light
she says i can see the changes in you
he says i want to be better
she says you are perfect , i want you back, i want us to be a family again
she hugs him
he says i dont know what to say
she says i thought you felt the same way thought you wanted the same thing
he says i want you more than anything but i have changed its helped me to see our relationship and the patterns
every time you open your heart to me and every time i turn around and i break it without question without fail
Jen says this time you wouldnt hurt me
he says i wouldnt want to but i will
im through being selfish, i wont put you through this again
its better that we are separated you will see trust me
she says i cant believe this really jack
he says im not doing this because i dont love you im doing this because i do
he kisses her
and runs out
she yells after him to wait

Abi says i hope you are not breaking my heart for nothing ,if you really want to fix things with Carrie you have to tell her everything about you and me and us and the affair
he says it was one night
she says so that makes it right
he says no
she says ok we will tell carrie today

rafe says maybe sharing this office isnt a good idea
she says we can make it work
he says we dont want sami and Austin seeing us together
getting the wrong idea
she says we will come up with a schedule
ill work the first couple of hours and you work the next
he says ill come back for my stuff later
he leaves

Sami says im nothing like you, i would never do to my family what you did
Mar says look what you are doing to Will, dont you see it?
what he is going through right now, dont you recognize it ,the rage the rebellion the lies
it is exactly what you went through and if you werent so selfish you would see that yourself
sami says you know something dont you
Mar says it doesnt matter what i know
what matters is that you fix it
Sami says fix what
Mar says its not my place to say
Sami says tell me what you know and you tell me right now

carrying a terrible secret

mar says i know that
sami says im sorry Will i know it isnt enough, if i could fix it i would i just dont know how
Marlena says you are not alone im here and this will be alright, i promise you
they hug
sami cries

carrie is surprised that abi is still talking to this guy
she wants to stay and hear her story
abi says he has some issues with commitment
he sounds like a real jerk but he is a really good guy
truth and honesty mean a lot to him
its important in any relationship and
Austin says he felt the same way
carrie says of course he does

maggie asks brady if he spoke with Madison about Ian
he says she tried to make me understand the situation
i asked her to marry me and she was already married at the time

mad says why would i want to get back at you
kate says im thinking maybe payback for stealing Sami away from your company
madison says no
kate says this is something personal
mad says since i came to salem it has been all business
kate says whats up with you madison
what is this game you are playing
Mad says the one where i win
ian comes in
kate says she didnt expect to see him here
he says hello lovely wife and kisses Madison

mar tell sami to let it out, she has been holding it in too long
sami says i didnt know what to do
Marlena says we will figure this thing out together
sami says how how
mar says you want to make it right with Will ,with rafe and yourself
sami says i want that more than anything
mar says you have to tell rafe what happened with Ej

sami says i cant tell rafe that i had sex with EJ, he will divorce me for sure
we are not telling him anything we are the only ones who know and no one is telling rafe
Will says EJ knows
Sami says he is not going to say anything
he doesnt want to lose Nicole
Marlena says what if it doesnt work out with nicole , EJ is still a Dimera and if you keep a secret ,he will use it against you
you have to deal with this before he does
rafe thinks you are divorcing him because he kissed your sister, how long can you let him believe that
sami says you mean cuz what i did was so much worse
Will says yeah it was mom
i didnt tell rafe cuz i didnt want to break up the family
but you did that already when you kicked him out, so you can do something
Mar says sami, you want to save this marriage , Will and I want you to save this marriage ,rafe loves you so much he will understand and he will forgive you
Sami says really?
Mar says really and
if you try to keep a secret it gets out and the longer you wait the worse it is
go to hm and tell him now tell him today

carrie tells abi she hopes everything works out for her
they have to run
they leave

brady and maggie talk
she says she isnt defending madison, but sometimes people have a good reason for doing what they do or dont do
he says he cant trust her anymore
without trust what do you have
he believed mads reasons for being with Ian
but its too late
maggie says she sees the way madison looks at brady, Ian isnt the man in her heart brady is

kate says Madison is your wife
i didnt know she was married to you
now its starting to make sense
i always wondered why you singled me out to compete with you, you knew about my relationship with Ian
Ian and I were in love ,i didnt know he was married to you but his heart belonged to me
you couldnt handle it
i know he needs someone that is his equal, i would have been more suited
Mad says Ian and i are still married and you settled for stefano
kate says i never settled i love my husband
mad says mad world is ahead of countess W
i beat you at every turn
asks if she told stefano about her ex lover being in town
kate says you are done madison, men like me they always have they always will you couldnt satisfy Brady or Ian

maggie and victor
talk
he hurt her feelings
he says what he said was the truth
blaming her
for what happened with Ian

abi at the square
Quinn tells her he is glad her and melanie are friends again
he sits and talks to her
about her guy troubles
austin and carrie are sitting on the white couch
Abi and Austin look at each other

sami says no i dont think he will ever forgive me for sleeping with Ej
Will says so you want to keep lying and keep making rafe feel horrible?
Sami says he has a thing for carrie she has a thing for him , if i tell him it will be just the
excuse he needs to go and be with her
marlena says dont make this a competition between you and your sister,he loves you
look when he came here to see the kids pleading with you to let him come home
sami says im going to talk to rafe about the carrie thing
we will sort it out
then i dont have to tell him about Ej
you all promise me you wont say anything

vic tells maggie
she is the best thing that ever happened to him he is happy
his life is full now because of her
if things dont get the attention they deserve so be it
if hiring Ian turns out to be a bad thing ,its business
you are the love of my life
if i could marry you a thousand times i would
she says and i would let you

Quinn tells abi he has to leave town go to Paris to talk to Taylor and get her to take the rest of the journey with him

carrie and Austin talk on the couch
about their trip
he says he has so much to do before they go
she does too
they kiss goodbye

abi hugs Quinn goodbye
wishes him and Taylor best of luck
Austin comes over and asks what that was all about


Mad says you can leave now kate nothing here for you
kate says tell Quinn he is a fool to do business with you
mad says tell stefano Ian says hi
kate says if you continue to make this personal there will be war, you will lose
kate leaves

marlena says i know you dont want to hurt rafe but secrets have a way of coming out
sami says no,he will never have to know
marlena says i know, Will knows, Ej knows its a time bomb
sami says did you think of how it will make rafe feel when he finds out i had sex with EJ
marlena says dont you know you cant have lies in a marriage and expect it to survive
sami says im trying to protect rafe
Will says no you are not, you are trying to protect yourself, just like you always do
sami says well i learned the hard way i have to look out for myself cuz no one else will

maggie and vic sit on the couch together
she hopes things work out for him and ian
his business plan for titan seems amazing
he says yes it does seem that way

ian asks madison how she knew he saw kate already
she says maybe you were too good a teacher
and im a better student than you gave me credit for

Austin says he is concerned she was talking to Quinn
he is bad news
she says why do you care ,you are back with carrie
i can date who ever i want
she walks off

brady and madison run in to each other at the square

Sami says i have had to look after myself my entire life cuz you were too busy being happy with john
mar says i know i wasnt there for you as often as i should have been ,i know
i m so sorry i cant change history
sami says and i cant change who i am
cant change being selfish but i do think thats what comes from having a mother who thinks only about herself
Will says thats so funny
i know exactly how that feels

Skye's Spoiler Report - Thursday, February 23

Ej and Nicole coming home
he says that was more than a victory parade than a press conference, they didnt ask me a single tough question , those
people you hired to throw out the confetti did an amazing job
she says i didnt hire anyone
he says you mean
those people were actually happy im the mayor of salem
she says hey you are still winning
after abes ballot stuffing scandal , i think
the press and people are ready to embrace you and your new leadership
they elected you after all
he says i have some big plans for this town
cant wait to get started
she says whats 1st on the agenda
cut taxes or exiling the bradys?
he says no im going to start with more domestic issues
he takes her into the living room
there is a picnic by the fireplace
with candles and champagne
she says whats the occasion ?
he says oh really ,you dont remember
she says oh my goodness
a year ago today we got remarried
he says its our anniversary
she kisses him

rafe at johns place
with Hope and Bo
he could not get bo or marlena into almanaia, Hope and John have to go
they have to be there in person
they refused to issue visas for Bo and Marlena
john says stefano is behind this no doubt about it

Marlena and Will are still with Sami
Marlena says i know that what happened between john and me, what you saw took a terrible toll on you, keeping that secret
you are right we were selfish
Will says no she cant keep blaming you for everything that she has done wrong in her life especially not after you did the same thing
Sami says i never meant to hurt you Will
he says oh, ill take that to the town square
and see if it buys me a cup of coffee
marlena says now stop it
it breaks my heart to see that the things i have done in the past are still hurting the people that i love the most
if you want to mend the rift between you and Will and if you want to put your marriage back together ,you have to tell rafe what happened otherwise it will destroy you

Ej and Nicole sit by fire
she says i still cant believe i forgot our year wedding anniversary
he says its been a tough year spent most of it fighting or being apart
she says and dont forget working hard on your victorious election campaign but i know i still forgot
he says thats ok, we have a double celebration,i cant tell you how much i appreciate all of your hard work
i could not have done this with out you
still dont know how you managed to get the win at the last minute
she says well i cant give up all my trade secrets
he says oh a woman of mystery eh?
They drink to her

Will tells marlena he has to go
dont let mom hurt you
she says stop
he says im serious, its
not your problem its hers
he leaves

sami says now that makes sense
your relationship,how cozy you are with Will, the word games and e-mails
Marlena says we have always been close
sami says and you used that
when Will came and told you what i had done you had your chance to make sure he hated me, that he would never forgive me for what i had done
so you could be a mother to him like you never were to me

Hope says here we go again
Bo says i feel like one of stefanos chess pieces
Hope says if only we knew the secret gran had we could use it against him
wonder if he looked at it yet
Bo says if he has, i hope its causing him as much hell as it is causing us

Nic says im surprised stefano wasnt at the pres conference, why he wasnt the
proud father basking in his sons victory
Ej says he left kate a note saying he had to go out of town , really dont wish to talk about my wayward father
rather talk about us and our future
she says now that the campaign is over i guess i have to find another job
he says i thought you liked being the first lady of salem sort of a hybrid of lady Diana
she says what little girl doesnt dream about being a princes or a billionaire
could you make me one of those?
He says no,maybe
she says i never wanted to be one of those
he says no you were always more of a power broker
she says and a mommy
he says swept off her feet by a white knight
she says well dreams change and i finally found something in my work that is so fulfilling something that im good at im not ready to give it up yet
he says im glad to hear it more than a mayoral candidate
think about how much im going to need you if i run for state office or if i skip that and jump into the national stage
she says i love it when you aim high
he says you dont have to make a decision now , give it some thought
in the meantime
i will see if i can think of something to do that might sweeten the deal
kisses

Will meets Sonny at the pub
says he is so behind in his classes
sonny says thats what happens when you are a slacker student by day and a hotshot political operative by night
Will says he is going through some family stuff
Sonny asks whats going on
Will says he cant talk about it
have to keep it to himself other wise he will hurt his family
wish he could talk about it ,tired of keeping it to himself
Sonny says you dont have to do that tell me whats going on you can trust me

Marlena says how could you say that i would try and take Will away from you
Sami says you want Will all to yourself and i made it easy for you to poison him against me
marlena says no matter what i do its easy for you to think the worse of me
all i really want is for you to be happy
do you want to save your marriage?
Sami says of course
marlena says then you got to tell rafe the truth
sami says get out and stay the hell out of my life
marlena says i know how this works this kind of secret can destroy even the strongest of relationships

Will says i trust you but this is not something i can tell anyone it will tear my family apart
Sonny says maybe you are wrong might bring them closer together
when i told my parents i was gay it
brought them closer together, best thing that ever happened , i didnt have to hide it from them anymore
Will says its not going to happen here
Sonny says you dont know that
i thought Victor was going to disown me
when i came out to him
but our relationship has gotten much better
i gave him a chance to know the real me
and accept me for who i am
im sure your family would be just as supportive
Will laughs and says hey you have the wrong idea
the secret isnt about me its about my mom

Ej says you know its going to take more than a title to convince the people of this town that we have changed
she says give them time
he says i will im going to use every trick known to man
and a few tricks that are known only to women
i will convince these people that we
are legitimate...ish
she tickles him and he laughs
and says you never change
he says does that worry you
she says no, come on, i love you just the way you are are
he says you are a gift you know that
she says a gift thats waiting to be in unwrapped
they kiss and
she falls to the floor
they continue to kiss

Bo says im sure stefano thinks he can create doubt and suspicion in having them travel alone together
mar says thats not going to work i trust john
Bo says and i trust my wife
Hope says stefano must have a bigger plan
john says i have a bad feeling when we get to alamania we will be walking straight into a trap

sami picks her phone up to call rafe
thinks about what her mom said about the secret
then she throws the phone down

Sonny says this thing with your mom has been really bugging you
will says she only cares about herself
she is not a good mother to me
she is selfish , she is a bitch
sonny says thats harsh thats you mother
Will says you have no idea ,i have forgiven her for so much stuff but not for this
sonny says what ever she did cant be that bad
Will says what if i told you she betrayed our entire family
Sonny says how
Will says promise not to tell anyone
remember when johnny was missing
and rafe found him here
anyway the whole time that was going down we couldnt find my mom anywhere
i was looking for her to tell her the good news
i ended up at the dimera mansion
Sonny says then what happened
they dont notice rafe walking in and sitting at the bar
i caught my mom cheating on rafe she was having sex with EJ Dimera
rafe hears the secret

Bo says stefanos plan is to get you guys to leave the country with out us ,we have to find a way to go with you
Hope says we have to get the divorce right away , we cant be living in limbo
Mar says this could be dangerous
john says we will be on guard Hope is a cop,not like we dont know what we are doing
bo says you are walking into a county that has under ground bunkers
earth quakes, coups of state
Stefano has this way of surprising us even when we see it coming
Hope says we have been up against stefano before and we always won in the end
john looks up flights and says they can leave in an hour

nicole and ej are laying by the fire
she says we should be in some marital
record book
he says for what we just did ?
she says there cant be another couple out there that has survived what we have and made it to their first year
he says yeah
and yet you forgot about it
she says sorry but i did come up with a cool idea for a present
in honour of our anniversary im going to go upstairs and rip up those divorce papers i made you sign months ago
he says i have something to give you first, wait here
he leaves

sonny says im sorry you had to carry that around about your mom for so long
Will says i havent been fun to be around
Sonny says lets get out of here
do something fun
party
there is a club at the town square just opened, my friends are going to be there we can meet them there
Will says great i want to forget about my mom and party

he says and that made you feel better to do that with him
she says no it was the
worse mistake of my life
he says why didnt you come to me your husband
she says i wasnt thinking straight wasnt thinking at all ,i never meant for it to happen
he says
you were thinking cuz you blamed me for Johnnys disappearance , you felt like i forced you to go to the pub to see john
and put john y in harms way
you did this to pay me back
she says i didnt do that it had nothing to do with that
i was fighting with EJ and he was yelling at me telling me what a terrible mother i am and he is right
i am a terrible mother i ended up doing the most self destructive thing i could have done
he says the problem is you didnt just destroy yourself you destroyed us and
this entire family

will and sonny go to the square

she says dont worry she will be careful
he says 2 weeks its going to be rough


rafe says well you sure played me for a fool all this time i have been beating myself up over this strange distance between us
thought i was failing you as a husband
thought i done something wrong
i kept begging you to talk about it, be
honest with me
and every time you just lied to my face
the scariest part about the whole thing you are so good at it
all those years of practice i guess
she says i hated lying to you

not exactly what one thinks of when they imagine a knight sweeping you off your feet but
if you would allow me i would love to try
i want you to feel safe and loved

long kiss

sami says you are no saint here i caught you kissing my sister i know there is something going on between the 2
he says are you serious you got to be kidding me you compare what i did to what you did
you had sex with the man who continuously tried to destroy our lives
then on top of it all you kick me out of here
she says we both made mistakes
but i think if we try we can work thru this
he says maybe if you had of come to me in the beginning but you didnt you lied to me day after day
you turned our marriage in to a joke
thats unforgivable
she says i know you are upset but you cant say things you dont mean

she says shut up both of you
rafe says when johnny was missing
we found that boys body
sami says we thought that boy was my son
the news said that it was and
i was over come with grief
rafe says right of course and the obvious reaction is to have sex with another man
a man you hate

EJ says we didnt mean for it to happen

Sami says i get it you have every right to be upset
nic says you are damn right
EJ says we thought our son was dead,, we were broken,,, we werejust looking for something, anything to take our pain away
Sami says it was like when we lost grace i and i felt like i was going through that all over again
rafe says so you turned to him

Ej says it was like we were having an out of body experience or something
Nic says so that makes it better?

He says no i love you
nic says

Hope says alamanai sounds like an unstable place to me
john says its a timber box waiting to happen
she says so we get in get and get out before the bomb goes off
he says right or before stefano gets a hold of us

Bo and Carrie are eating at the pub
she tells him she is sorry about her and rafe not working out she knows he was counting on them
guess you heard about me and rafe
he says yeah its a small town what were you thinking
she says this is none of your business

she says im here for you
they hug
he says thank you

Ej says come on Nicole you know i detest Samantha
nic says you want me to believe that you had sex with her even though you detest her because you were sad thats what you want me to believe?
Sami says cuz its the truth
you know how much i hate him, you both know that,
there is nothing going on between us
the only reason i ever talk to him is because of the kids
rafe says i dont care if
you want to be with Ej go ahead you can be with him cuz i am done with you
sami says rafe i love you
he says you lied to me you manipulated me people who love each other dont do those things

Nicole says i cant take this anymore
she tries to leave
Ej says no not until you listen to what i have to say please
she says i dont have to listen to you
i dont owe you anything
he says please dont walk out that door dont throw everything we have away because i made a stupid mistake
she says you threw everything away
when you slept with a aother woman
sami sami sami it is always sami
he says thats not true i meant what i said
when i gave you that ring
we just need to have a fresh start
sami says that what it is a fresh start
rafe that was what i had in mind when i wanted to renew our vows
i wanted the chance to tell you how much i wanted to spend the rest of my life with you
rafe says dont try to romanticize what you did
you wanted to renew our vows cuz it was some sense of relief
she says i meant every word i said

Ej says to Nicole
lets start over you cant let something that happened in the past affect our future
i love you, he takes her hand
she takes her hand away and takes the ring off and throws it at his chest and says i hate you and leaves

Hope and john continue to wait at the airport
trying to be positive
they make small talk

Bo says i did screw up my marriage with Hope
carrie says sorry i shouldnt have said
he says thats my point i have been there
i had those feeling that make you doubt your commitments that destroy you marriage the hell you have to go thru to pick up the pieces and put your marriage back together
i love you i dont want you to make the same mistakes that i made


marlena and will sit on the couch
she says start at the beginning
he says sonny invited him to a party
he was still angry with his mom, so he went
friends were there
laughing having great time
but he wasnt
then a guy asked him to play beer pong
and he did
then he got drunk
then after the game
the guy followed him
and he kissed him

rafe says what is it with you 2 ?
sami says nothing
there is nothing going on
rafe says you 2 have this sickness, this obsession with destroying each others lives
but dont you know the trick EJ its really simple
ej says is it?he sits at the piano
rafe says let sami take the reins lead her the way and she will self destruct on her own she does it every time
sami says you are right i blew it just like i always do but you have to believe me what happened meant nothing
he says well it meant something to me
the end of my marriage and the end of our family
she says we can fix this what about the letter you wrote to me and said you would never give up
he says the letter i wrote after you kicked me out?
ej gets up off the piano chair and says i see you 2 have a lot to discuss
excuse me im going to go find my wife
he takes his jacket and starts to leave
rafe grabs him
and says im going to kill you
i should kill you for what you done to me
and to my family
he puts his hands around his throat
going to choke him
then lets him go
sami looks scared


carrie tells bo she started to have real feelings for rafe and she is confused
bo says he understands
the situation with carly was different
Hope and him were in a bad place she had taken Cierra and moved out , they had zero communication
her and Austin seemed like they were in a good place
she says they were but they were on opposite sides of johns case and were fighting over it
he says kissing someone is not like slipping on a banana peel , oh our lips are together ,,,eeek
you have to admit what happened with rafe
happened because you wanted it to

Will says you dont look surprised did you hear me i said i kissed a guy
she says i know i heard you
he says dont you feel shocked
angry or disgusted do you feel anything
she says i do my heart goes out to you im so glad you came to talk to me about it
he says you didnt even flinch when i told you i kissed a guy why?

EJ says You dont have the nerve do you
he goes to go after him again and
sami gets between them and says dont he is not worth it
rafe says well once you are right he isnt worth it and neither are you
he leaves

sami says we have to do something we have to fix this
eJ says we,,,,, we are not team Samantha, im going to find my wife and you can get out of my house
she says this is all your fault i have you know and she pushes him
he says my fault ,you correct me if im wrong
but werent you were on that couch when we sex?
she gets up close to him and says yeah it was the biggest mistake of my life
he yells for now we agree on something
they look at each other for a sec
then she says oh my god i have to go find rafe
ej grabs her and says you arent going anywhere
she says let me go
he says not until you tell me
why they hell you told him
she says are you stupid i didnt tell him
he says then who did
who was it will aim
she says no i don think he would hurt rafe like that
he says then who did?
She says you look after your wife
he tries to grab she but she runs off
he goes and calls someone to bring the car around

marlena says i think you know how much i love you
i think you know that i would never lie to you
he says then dont
tell me the truth
she says this is the thing i suspected you have been dealing with for a long time
he says why havent you said anything
she says its a thing you have to sort out for yourself no one else can tell you how you feel thats a thing you have to figure out on your own

carrie says i didnt try hard enough to stay faithful to my marriage vows
bo says you got to stop and take an honest look at what happened with rafe and figure out what you want for the long run
she says i want to save my marriage
but
i have these feeling for rafe they wont go away what if im love with him
bo says you are going to asks yourself, do you love him more than Austin and would perusing a relationship with him be worth destroying your marriage and the relationship with your sister and her kids

she says thats a lot of questions
he says you are going to have to answer those questions you are the only one who can tell you what you want
i cant tell you ,rafe cant tell you , Austin cant tell you , this is a decision you have to make and you have to live with
she says you have given me lots to think about

Hope and john get to leave the airport at last
she falls on the strap of johns bag and john catches her, they share a look

Will says i dont think that i can do this
she says you dont have to do anything you dont want to do
i will never ever judge you
i want you to be happy
he says i want to be happy too
i cant remember the last time that i was
she says you will get back there
i promise
he says can i ask you a question
do you think that im gay?

Bo calls Hope and leaves her a message
he misses her already

Hope says im usually a bit more graceful that this
he gets the strap off her leg
he says my mistake
she says lets go she runs in the wrong direction
he says Hope this way
the guy following them is still there

Ej comes down the stairs
on his phone
looking at the ring he had given Nicole

he is calling nicole
she looks at the caller ID but wont answer the phone
she is at the square
crying
a guy puts his hand on her shoulder
she looks up and says oh my god what are you doing here ?

rafe at his office packing boxes
Carrie comes in
he says carrie


Marlena says its not about what i think its about you, what you think
he says i dont know
she says well i think deep down you do i think you have for a while

banging at the door
marlena opens the door, its sami
sami says how could you , how dare you
tell rafe that i slept with EJ

***************************************

Skye's Spoiler Report - Monday, February 27

Sonny outside the pub calling Will
leaves him a message
looking for him worried about him
he is there if he needs to talk

Nicole at the square
gets a call from Ej
she wont answer it
crying
hand on shoulder
its Daniel
she asks him what was he doing here
he says what kind of greeting is that
she says i didnt no you were back
he says i just got back
are you alright
she says its been a rough night
one of the worse nights of my life

carrie asks rafe what happened
she says i can help you
he says i doubt that
she says im still your friend you are still my brother in law
he says not for long not the last part anyway
my marriage has been a damn lie, sami cheated on me with Ej
he throws a box at the wall

Sami says to Marlena how could you tell rafe i had sex with ej
her mom says i dont know what you are talking about
she says you dont really?
Rafe came to me and confronted me tonight
he knows that i betrayed him ,he said he is never going to forgive me
marlena says im so sorry
Sami says you did this you told him everything ,you ruined my marriage

rafe says after sami admitted what she had done i went to pay a visit to our new mayor
i would have killed him but there were too many witnesses
the only good thing nicole was there and ej had just proposed to her when she heard what he had done everything hit the fan
carrie says sounds like there is plenty to go around
i cant believe my sister would cheat
he says that surprises you ?
She says no one knows better than i do what sami is capable of but after what she witnessed with john and marlena she swore that was the last thing she would ever do
he says guess that was just
another one of her lies
carrie says she must have been out of her mind with grief otherwise there is no way she would have let that happen
he says are you trying to justify what she has done
she says no just trying to understand, i no how much she loves you and how much she despises Ej
he says yeah she despises EJ enough to have sex with him
doesnt matter all a lie thats all our marriage has been one big lie

marlena says im sorry that happened , i promise you i did not say a word to rafe i wouldnt do that
sami looks at Will, did you tell him
he says no
she says then how did he find out
marlena says we dont know maybe its for the best
now you and rafe can begin to heal
sami says he is so hurt and angry he made it clear he is not going to forgive me
which is what i knew would happen
and no matter how hard you pushed me i knew i shouldnt tell him
you just couldnt take it you thought what you wanted was for the best
you have to stop trying to help me ,you dont know me or my situation
all you are doing is hurting everybody

Dan says you want to talk about tonight
she says no
i can deal with it on my own, i always have
he says doesnt mean you have to
she says its not like we are friends
you must have better things to do than listen to me whine about my pathetic life
he says i could use a change of pace
she says thank you but i think im going to get going
welcome back, see you around
she gets up and passes out and he catches her

rafe says i always knew sami had a way of twisting the truth in her own mind
never thought she would do something like this to me , she would lie to me like this
maybe it was my fault maybe i wasnt there for her like she needed me to be
carrie says dont blame yourself
he says instead of trying to find out what she needed, i decided to spend my time here open this business with you
she says this is not your fault none of it is your fault

Will says grandma just told you she didnt tell rafe so she didnt
she is not the liar in this family thats you
sami says you dont know everything
you dont know what she is really capable of ,how many times she destroyed my life
marlena says thats not true and you know it
sami says you told rafe didnt you , you destroyed my marriage that is the worse thing you can do to me
Will says what are you talking about grandma didnt make you have sex with Ej yo did that all on your own
stop blaming everyone else for your mistakes
marlena tells Will to remain calm
he says im trying but its hard around her
i cant stand being around you anymore
im going to go
Marlena says we were in the middle of an important conversation
Sami says im sorry i interrupted
your important private conversation
i would advice you Will, you keep confiding in her and you never know what she is capable of and keep in mind she just destroyed our family
marlena says if you cant take
responsibilities for your own
actions then for once in your life ,please stop talking
she says to Will lets finish our conversation
he says i cant not with her around she makes everything about herself and i cant handle that right now

Nicole is in a hospital bed
Dan wakes her up
she says where am i?
He says i brought you to the hospital you fainted
she says i was trying to make a dramatic exit
he says im having some tests done
did you have anything to eat earlier
she says i was having a very romantic dinner right before ,i had an emotionally exhausting evening probably why i fainted i feel fine
he says stay here and rest till the test results come back ,ill call Ej have him come sit with you
she says no no o
i dont want him to know where i am , he is the last person i want here
he says so you are saying you dont want me to call EJ
should i call somebody to come be here with you?
She says no ,there is one thing i learned tonight you have to take care of yourself cuz if you rely on other people they will only let you down

rafe tells carrie she is the last person he should be talking to about his marriage problems but there is no on else to turn to
you understand, he knows he isnt completely innocent for the problems he and sami are going through
she says she is sorry she helped cause some of those problems
he says no you didnt
that was after the fact
sami did a hell of a lot worse she did more than just kiss Ej, the whole distance between us was because of her lies
when she found out i kissed you
she kicked me out of my house
how could she treat me that way
carrie says she must have felt guilty
he says you are unbelievable ,after everything she has done to you the way she has treated you, you still give her the benefit of the doubt
she says we got to get out of here right now
they leave the office

Marlena says im worried about Will , he is in a lot of pain right now
Sami says you think i dont know that
you think i dont remember what it felt like to walk in on you and john on that conference room table
marlena says thats not what i was talking about but yes
he is in pain over what he saw you doing but right now he has much bigger things on his mind
sami says like what?
Marlena says its not my place to say
sami says that didnt stop you from blabbing to rafe
marlena says stop that cant you see your son is going through hell?
Can you stop being so self absorbed for a moment and maybe be there for your son
be there for him for once

will goes to the square sits on the bench
sonny shows up
will tells him he was at his grandmas
and he told her what happened tonight he kissed a guy
she wasnt surprised
she said she had been suspecting what i have been going through for awhile then
Sonny says so she was cool with it
Will says yeah
we didnt get to finish our conversation
my mom showed up and she started raving like a lunatic
about rafe ,accused grandma of telling rafe then she thought it was me then she went back to grandma then i decided to leave
sonny says so rafe knows?
Will says everything ,,,yeah
its finally happened
i have no family anymore

dan sits with Nicole
he says he has no place to go, going to keep her company
she says why are you being so nice to me
you only tolerated me cuz i was chloes friend
he says i never had a problem with you it was the company you kept
she says oh Ej you think i would have learned my lesson by now?
He says is he the reason why you are upset?
Might help if you got it off your chest ,vent let it go
she says maybe you are right
its the same old stupid story ,Ej made me fall in love with him and he broke my heart in the worse possible way

carrie takes rafe to the pub
they have clam chowder
her grandmothers clam chowder is the best and it usually comes with a side of advice
and her grandma would say
marriages are tough and sometimes people make mistakes
then she talks about the affair her granma had with victor and how the secret didnt come out till Bo was grown up
her grandpa was hurt and angry but in the end he forgave her , they worked things out
he really forgave her and they had many more happy years together
he says you think i should do that with sami
she says marriage is a commitment sometimes it would feel easy to walk away
but if you stick with it and tough it out
its worth it in the end


Sonny says how did rafe find out
Will says dont know
mom and Ej didnt tell him
grandma wouldnt tell him, i didnt tell him
sonny says i didnt say anything
Will says i know i trust you
sonny says im sorry you were trying to keep your family together , but now
you dont have to carry that secret around anymore
and coming out to your grandmother
Will says wait i didnt say i came out to her i told her i kissed a guy that
doesnt mean im gay

sami says i tried to get him to open up to me and he wont
not because he hated me for what i did its because of you he has you he can rely on and he doesnt need me
Marlena says he doesnt rely on you cuz he doesnt think he can
for years he has been the parent in this relationship he had to look out for you
he does it cuz he loves you
maybe now you can start looking out for Will,maybe now,you can be the parent that he deserves


Nicole says i knew getting involved with Ej again was a mistake after everything he did to me in the past
he says then why did you do it?
She says i thought things would be different cuz i was stronger ,i knew what i was getting into, i thought all i was getting was a job
he broke down my defences and i fell in love with him and i swear he felt the same way about me
he says what went wrong
she says he cheated on me again
with sami of all people
he says i would not have seen that one coming
she says he lied about it for months
he says sorry
she says i deserved it for letting him back in to my life
he says stop being so hard on yourself
she says i need to be harder on myself
fairy tales like this dont happen for people like me
and i am fine with it and Ej he made me
believe i could have that kind of love that kind of happiness and
when i started to think i could have everything he snatched it out from under me
i hate him i hate Ej for what he did to me i hate myself
she starts screaming for letting him do this to me , why am i so stupid
how could i let him do it to me
she starts crying and Daniel hugs her


sami says im a terrible mother
i hear that i want to know whats going on with Will
Marlena tells her Will speaks to her in confidence
Sami says so you are telling me now to lord it over me that you know something that i dont
Mar says of course not she would be happy to see the 2 of them reconcile
you are his mother , you have known him since the day he was born and you have not seen signs of what is going on with him?
Sami says he is mad at me for what i did and he has been acting out , but he is great kid , good student ,he works hard wonderful big brother
is there something wrong with him is he going to be ok
mar says i think he will
sami says you dont know you are not sure
marlena says he needs his mother now
your support is so important to him and how he comes thru this depends in a large part on you


Sonny says sorry dont mean to push thought you had things figured out
Will says not really i dont
i have been fighting these feelings for so long and i thought, i hoped that in time they would go away
and now im afraid they are not ever going to go away im scared i have no idea what to do
Sonny says its gonna be ok

Dan hugs Nicole for awhile
he says you ok
she says yeah
he says im sorry for what you are going thru i have been there
you opened up your heart it isnt stupid its brave not an easy thing to do for a lot of people
she says thank you
for being here for me
i just really need to get out of here
need a hotel room to get some sleep its been a hell of a day i need it to be over
dan says he will see about the tests
she says i had no idea you still worked here
he says i didnt either but
now i do
she says lucky me
he says are you sure you dont want me to call somebody how about brady?
She says i dont need anyone
from now on im on my own
he leaves
she cries

carrie tells rafe about her romantic get away she is going on with Austin



will says im not ready to
accept this as my life this is not something i ever planned for myself
sonny tells him no one plans on being gay
just the cards you are dealt
Will says what if i am gay , i dont think i can accept that
i keep thinking about how my family will react
i cant stand the thought of them rejecting me
sonny says your grandmother is fine with
it
Will says she is paid to be understand she is a psychiatrist
its not going to be like that with the rest of my family trust me
my other grandmother kate she thought my dad was messing up his life so she paid nicole 5 million dollars to marry him
what will she do to me ?
granpa roman having a gay grandson i see
how that is going to go down at the police station
and my parents how can i face my
my dad , he laughs
and my mom
you know how well she takes things , she will make this all about herself i still care about what she thinks
sonny says maybe she will surprise you maybe everybody will surprise you
Will says i dont want to take that chance the thought of them turning their backs on me just cuz of who i am
they are all messed up they bu they are the only thing i got
i dont want to lose them
sonny says i remember having the same doubts and fears when i was going to tell my family
it gets so much easier
Will doesnt think it will be easy for him
Sonny says
what you need to do is accept the truth for yourself, are you ready to do that


Sami says she might lose the man she loves
marlena says im so sorry hope it doesnt happen but if it does that is of your own doing

will says if i tell people there is no going back ,my life is changed for ever i have to give up so many dreams
Sonny says its better than living a lie
Will think he isnt strong enough
sonny says if you need any help im here for you
Will says i dont even know for sure if im
Sonny says i think you do know for sure

Sami tells marlena she is going to try and put her family back together without her in it , she storms out


dan comes in to see Nicole he says i have your test results
she says great so i can leave?
He says not yet there is something i want to discus with you first
she says what is it, is there something wrong with me?
He says after what happened to you tonight im not sure how you are going to take this news
she says you are scaring me tell me what it is
he says you are pregnant
she says oh god

Ej leaves a message he is worried about her

Ian says what cant you do anymore
she says this banter back and forth between us
he says we should be honest ,direct
thats why you should tell me what is bothering you
no one cares about you the way i do
she says if you cared about me you wouldnt have taken that job at titan

EJ walks in
says Kayla have you seen Nicole?
She says no and you should just turn around and leave

she says the point is ,even if ej and i were blissful together it wouldnt make a difference
when i was pregnant before , which was a miracle i had never been happier in my whole life , then when i lost the baby
i never knew there could be sadness like that and being me i didnt just grieve
i made life a living hell for me and Ej ,sami rafe ,brady i was crazy with grief
so what here we go again,,, no
i dont even care about ej ,for the first time in my life ,this is about me and if i am pregnant , i know the chances of carrying this baby to term
i want a baby more than anything but i cant go thru this again ,re run the test this can not be happening
he says ok and hugs her

he says i will re run the tests
i want you to take some deep breaths and try and relax
she thanks him
he leaves
she lies down
Ej comes in and says thank God I found you , are you alright ?
She says get out Ej
he says i will leave i just need to know if you are ok, whats going on ?
She says im here because of what you did to me

Abe says you think i had anything to do with the election tampering?
Bo says no it doesnt matter what i think,
it only matters what the DA thinks
and he doesnt care one way or another
he is only thinking about the political leverage he can get by working with the new mayor by going after you and

what kind of mileage he will get by rooting out corruption
Abe tells him how be got copies of the debate questions ahead of time and gave EJ fake one
bo smiles and says so thats why lexi is upset with you
abe says she found out and now she doesnt trust me
Bo says why did yo do it Abe
abe says it got personal i was so tired of him taking pot shots at me decided to fight fire with fire
i told myself i was trying to protect this city from a crook
i ended up handing the city to him on a silver platter and now i lied to lexi and she will never forgive me

jen goes to the the hospital to see Dan
in his office
she says she is happy to see him
she hugs him
her friend texted her and told her he was back
she say she is surprised he didnt call her and tell her he was coming back

Madison says i owe you
ian says i saved your life started your company
she says im not trying to hurt you
i dont feel like a wife you love
your faith in me gave me faith in myself
im grateful for everything you done for me i dont want the same things anymore,my life had changed im not the same person we dont belong together not anymore
he says i see this clearly this has to do with brady black ,you have fallen in love


Ej sits on the bed and says what happened
she says i know this might come as a shock to you but i had quite a reaction
when i heard the news that you and sami comforted each other in a very special way
he says you have to understand
she says oh i understand and i figured it out that once again your connection with sami trumps everything
he says no
she says it made me feel sick ,my head was spinning so fast , i passed out
luckily Daniel was with me
he says im so sorry
she says sorry doesnt cut it
we talked about this , i told you
if we were gonna go down this road
i was fine with not knowing the dimera business but when it came to the 2 of us there had to be trust or this was not going to work
he says you have to understand what happened with Samantha there was no love
there
she says maybe i know that here, points to her head
but here she touches her chest
i know that i can never trust you ever again i will never ever forgive you
and i dont want anything to do with you ever again


mad says im sorry
he says i know you are and you are right we need to be more honest with each other
does it have to do with brady?
She says Yes we love each other
never felt love like this before in my whole life
brady is my soul mate


dan tells jen he didnt have a chance to call her, but
he called maggie and Melanie
she feels like he is avoiding her
thought they were staying friends
he says they are
she says she is happy to see him glad he is back
he asks about jack
he thinks the 2 of them got together
and he doesnt want his coming back to get in the way of that
she says no , you have nothing to worry about

Kayla pours abe some coffee
says you are not the first person to be driven to drink by the dimeras in this town
she mentions stefano and hope and John
bo says they felt like Mrs H was leading them to this, for some reason she wanted
them to know the truth
Kayla says at least now you are dealing with Stefano directly , steve and i learned the hard way, thats the best way to do it
and not just stefano either
you have to deal with ej the same way
he is a Dimera through and through
now that he is the mayor god help this town
if we dont stand up to him

Ej says i know what i did was horrific
i know that i should have told you about it when it happened
she says i think you are right because i could have walked out right there and then
and saved everyone a whole lot of grief
he says i never meant for this to happen
she says dont explain yourself , in your hour of need you turned to her
he says we thought our son was dead
she says i know all about it you dont have to explain your grief to me , i know all the horrible things it made me do except
everything i did was aimed towards holding onto you and our family all i wanted was you
she cries and says in my grief Ej i turned to you
in your grief you turned to sami

he says Nicole is there anything i can do to make this up to you please
she says no
there is nothing you can do or say we are through

ian says you are in love with him i can see that
she says he is in love with me too




dan says not sure what that means
jen says its simple jack and i are not together we are not going to be together he decided we are not good for each other he isnt good for me
he asks if she is ok
she says it hurt
more than i imagined it would i think he is right
we are not good for each other
he says some people are and some people arent good for each other
he has test results to get back to someone
he hugs her good bye


EJ says sweetheart
i know you are angry with me,i know you are hurt
she says you catch on quick
he says i want you to know that i love
you and deep down
you still love me
im not giving up im going to find a way to prove that what happened with Samantha meant nothing to me
she says i already told you there is nothing you can say or do nothing we are through
he says i dont accept that
everything we have been through
and we got through all of that because you and i are meant to be together
we havent always felt that way but thats the way it is
its not something that we can control
it is the way it is
she says that is so dimera you want something so its meant to be
he says we know each other better than we know our selves
she says we know how to hurt each other better
he says not anymore
thats in the past , its not going to happen again
i asked you to marry me because
i love you not because i felt guilty
we need to put this behind us
and look to the future to us having a family ,can we do that?
she lies back down
holding her stomach
and cries

dan tells jen everything is fine
with him
she leaves
he sits down

kayla says its not easy to do your job with ej as mayor
bo says it will be like heading up north Koreas tourist board
she says as long as ej wants to be mayor
he is stuck between a rock and a hard place
he cant do anything to blatant an protecting criminals isnt going to keep him in office for long
bo says he cant belive he made it into office in the first place

maybe we can get some kind of strategy put together before he is sworn in
tells abe he thought they would be working together but now his ally has been replaced with an enemy

ej rubs her back says think about how happy we were
she jumps up and say stop ej stop
you made me realize what a fool i was to trust you to care about you to love you
doesnt matter whether i love you or not
i woudlnt want to be a part of your world let alone your family not anymore
he says you cant mean that
she says i do mean that so get the hell out of my room
get out Ej
dan walks in and says i have your test results
Ej says what test results he looks at Nicole

ian says this love and soul mate changed everything
i know you didnt mean for this to happen
i knew something was going on from their phone calls
he sees how much she loves brady he understands
she thinks he will be happier
he will find someone who loves him as much as she and brady love each other
he says im going to be happy as can be but she will be miserable
can you imagine being with your soul mate and still being married to me
im not going to let you go that easily
im not letting you go especially not to mr brady black
she says i dont believe this
he says i own you never going to divorce you not now or never
clean yourself up we are going out
cant be looking like a hot mess

Bo tells abe he has an idea needs his help
first patch things up with lexi
then we can help out the citizens of Salem


Nic says i want him out of here
i told you what was wrong,,,you after i found out about
your little side show with sami it made me hyperventilate. it made me pass out
i passed out so dan being the good doctor he is, wanted me checked out so he ran some tests and the test results are none of you business
dan says he cant talk about it
EJ says is she going to be ok?
she screams at him to get out of here
Dan says dont let me call security on the mayor
he takes his jacket and walks out

Nicole cries
dan sits with her
she says they are wrong im not pregnant
he says you are pregnant there is no question
she cries some more

sami says im glad you can talk to my mom wish you could talk to me too
he says you dont make it easy
she says i know you had the weirdest life because of me and because i had you when i was so young
last night i thought about what i could have or should have done differently
so many time i thought kate was going to take you away from me
he says and why did you go to work for her?
she says i know i held on too tightly and other times my life was a mess and i expected you to grow up too quickly
we had tears and screaming fights and anger and silence and times you couldnt even live here because of me but we got past that and we can get past this too
i know you are furious with me for what happened with rafe and im furious with myself
i may not get him back, you are my son and i dont want to lose you too
i want to be your mom again

Ian tells kate he comes in peace has something for her
information concerning her company


Brady doesnt want to talk to Madison

john and hope go into a cafe
they dropped their divorce papers off but
they have to stay until the divorce is final
someone is watching them from a window

Will says the past 6 months all our conversations have been about you
so why the sudden interest
she says i know how you feel ,i was younger than you when i walked in on my mom and john
i know what it feels like to be carrying around your moms dirty secret
i know the anger and frustration
the rage you must feel i know you feel that
you hate me right now
he says pretty much
she says you feel like your mom thinks that your problems, your life arent important
well that stops right now
you are dealing with something that has nothing to do with me
you felt alone i dont blame you if you dont want to talk to me about it but if you do i will listen and i will have your back

he says you already did
then he gives a recap
she thought he would never be cruel to her


ian says its about Samantha brady

she says after everything sami and i have been through ,you think there is anything that i dont know about her?
he says she got the job through false pretences
Kate says Madison hired her they had a falling out and i rehired her , what is there to know?

he says when i came in here i had this feeling of deja vous
we have been here before


sami says your life sucks how
he says you know that feeling when you are driving and going down a steep hill and your breaks give out ,,its like that
she says that must be scarey but you can handle that whatever life is throwing you right now ,you are so strong
you can get through anything
you are strong like your dad
you didnt get that from me

he says i dont know what else to say
she says thats ok
im here if you ever want to talk
he says thank you
she says it was hard to learn you could talk to my mom and not me, but im sure she wasnt surprised , im sure everyone is used to it,,, something is going on with Will but im sure its samis fault
he says this little talk you wanted to have its not about helping me its about you
it is always about you


kate says i think you are making it up, no way sami would be working for Madison
he says she isnt ,,,not anymore
she says sami working for me was my idea
thats what happened
Madison was treating sami like garbage
i made an opportunity for her when she was down and out
so she owes me , and its working out
he says what you witnessed between sami and madison was a setup and you fell for it
madison was aware of what was going on in your company and sami was collecting 2 pay cheques
she says impossible
he says dont feel bad
madison has been clever but to fool someone as shrewd as you are?
hope you dont let them get away with it

madison tells brady she wants a divorce
but ian wont let it happen i dont love him i never loved him
they argue for a bit

john talked to the owner he told him they use to come in there almost every day for lunch and you are as beautiful as ever
she says things are starting to come back to me as well. I remember

something might come to us and help us
she goes outside to call Bo

she reminds him of buying her her first x-mas tree
she tells him she is only married on paper
doesnt mean anything
only thing stopping them from being together is him

will tries to leave
she stops him asks him not to go
he says all you care about is you and what other people think of you
she says i have to care about what other people think of me
im always aware of the fact that the dimeras could swoop in and try to take my kids away from me
he says where you thinking about that when you were tearing Ejs clothes off?
did you think about your kids or rafe?
She says no i wasnt thinking straight ,just thinking about johnny thinking he was dead
he says i know we covered that

bo and hope brady , they found a way to
lean on stefano
which screwed up his plans to ruin my life
the guy says actually he is not the one who set you up
john says what was that
the guy tells him they will talk about that later
we are still investigating
Walsh says they have an agent out looking for what happened , not just who set you up
but where the money went
john isnt happy to be out of the loop
he wants to know whats going on

Will says you are always crying about how you have to take care of yourself
because no one else will take care of you
did you ever think its because you dont give your mother a chance,,, good luck
she says i love you
he says i almost feel sorry for you, you want so bad to look like the perfect mother and the perfect wife and thats why you screw everything up because you have no energy left over to actually do it
at least you have your job though
he leaves

ian says he will leave for her to plot her revenge
he wants her to be kinder to him
after what he just told her



john says im sticking out my neck to help you with this case they should have told him crucial information
the agent says its too dangerous to give you the details here, Walsh will fill you in tonight
i have a bad felling about this, watch your back

madison says they dont have to be married to be happy together
he says its a fantasy and he
doesnt want to hear one more word about her and her husband

sami comes to the mansion
cuz kate called her over

she says i was told i couldnt get pregnant again then miracle of miracles
it would be something to celebrate if
my husband hadnt of cheated on me , god
i hate sami and its not even all her fault
i thought Ej changed , im never making that mistake again

Ej is at the square
face is still messy and he is wearing his pink shirt
he walks up to lexi
she says oh my god what happened to you?
Never mind i dont want to know
he says you arent even going to talk to me
she says i dont have anything to say to you
he says i understand that you are upset with me , for the way things turned out but im not the bad guy here , what did i do ,i won the election
she says its not what you did
you want to be mayor go ahead
its who you are that i have a problem with
he says and who am i ?
she says you are manipulative , self centred liar
he says as opposed to your husband
he manipulated and lied to everyone
she says cuz you drove him to it
he says you are not defending him are you
after everything that man has done ?

Rafe at his office
looking at a pic of him and sami
he throws it in the trash
sami comes in
he says what are you doing here
she says she was hoping she could talk to him

he says i cant be around you
she says i get it but kate gave me more responsibility, i have to travel

lexi says Abe is still my sons father and my husband dont speak ill of him around me

cross legs hands up here
you need to do this
asks if she is eating cuz
she is eating for 2
she is upset didnt sleep well
he says you have a lot to figure out
you have to think for yourself
including whether or not you want to have this baby


Hope and John think back
to dancing together
(Flashback)
as princes Gina
she says i dont understand this why is this happening
why are these coming back to us now
he says we are here and thats where this happened
Hope says these memories are humiliating
John says there is only one thing to do
we need to talk
we have to talk about everything that went on between us
hope says i dont see the point
he says it will make dealing with the memories a lot easier
we will be prepared for what we are about to remember
stef is counting on us to avoid talking about our feelings
we can weaken his hold on us
what happened between us back then wasnt real what is real is what we feel for bo and marlena


nic say im having this baby no questions asks
even though Ej is the father this is a baby i never thought i would have
i cant even put in to words , im terrified thats why i reacted the way i did , i
cant handle a loss like that again, i wont survive
he says you have , you can and you will
fate can challenge us in some pretty unexpected ways
she says when i walked out on Ej i was prepared to spend the rest of my life alone all of a sudden
i wasnt , she touches her stomach

lexi says im not interested in any proposition from you
he says even if its about a new heath care plan for salem ?
I know you wrote my campaign off as a joke,i understand that
but if you listen to me you will see that i have some really innovative ideas about how we can improve the community
she says ok tell me
he says i would like to find a way make sure we get health care for everybody, all those people that cant afford it or dont have it
she says no one around here wants their taxes raised
he says i couldnt agree with you more thats why i want to invest in preventative medicine
i want to help people before they get to hospital , that way everybody wins
she says what does that have to do with me
he says you supported Abe during the campaign cuz you thought he was the best person for the job right ?
I understand that
you still see me as the enemy
she nods her head
he says but you
know a good idea when you hear one
she says are you asking me for my support

rafe says you can always count on me to help out with the kids
just ask me
when do you need me?
She says not sure yet
dates arent set
he says let me know
she thanks him
says he is welcome to stay at the loft
he says lets not push it ,this doesnt change anything between us
dont want the kids getting confused
she says i appreciate you helping me ,sorry its been tough for me on my own
tough knowing if i had believed in you and our family .none of this would have happened
he says i will always love our family
i will always do whats best for them
she says does that include me ?

Nic says this baby is a blessing what if something goes wrong that i cant control?
he says for now the most important thing you can do is minimize the stress
for the sake of the child you have to find a way to be there for the baby together
she says no, ej can not know this baby is his


Ej says i need someone like you
you are widely respected in the medical community
you understand the politics of the situation
i dont know anybody better qualified
she says how would i do that
he says be city health commissioner
you can do what ever you want , you pick your own team ,, you tell me what you need and i make sure you have those resources
she says what do you get out of this
except for the pleasure of having the ex-mayors wife on your pay roll?
Thats the real reason this offer is on the table

sami says i know you would have never taken us to the pub that day if you knew it was dangerous , i should never have blamed you for johnnys disappearance
i wish i could take back everything that happened
he says all we can do now is live and learn and move on
she says to what?
I lost you and alienated Will
he says Will will come around
she says i dont know if he will
he is so mad at me i dont know how to help him
maybe you can talk to him
tell him im still his mother and i love him
he says Will knows that deep down
sorry for what you are going through
but maybe now you will realize there is consequences for your actions
she says i know there are , i just never thought losing you would be one of them, i love you
you mean everything to me
i dont want to believe that i have lost you i want you to give me another chance
he says you sleeping with Ej, maybe i could have understood, maybe i could have loved you enough and trusted you enough to work thru that but you lied to me over and over thats when you lost me


Hope asks John to go see the sights
he says he will give her some space
he starts to leave
she wants to know whats going on here
she notices the signs he is fidgety and distracted
something else is going on
she wants to know what it is

sami says you dont mean that
tell me you love me and you will give us another chance
he says i cant
she says i know what i did was unforgivable
i didnt want to tell you cuz i didnt want to see our family torn apart
he says you did what was best for you
like what you always do
above everything else including your marriage
she says im sorry
he says i can see that
she says please forgive me and give me another chance
i promise i can be better
i can do it better
i cant do it without you
he says i cant do what you want ,
im sorry
he leaves
she cries
sees their pic in the garbage and she knocks it over


Ej says its a legitimate offer
you dont have to give me an answer yet
but if you accept this position of city health commissioner , you will find it very rewarding
she says i will think about it
he says can you keep an open mind when it comes to your brother ?
She says no no no , i trusted in you too many times
he says i know its
not easy to forget when somebody you care about lets you down
she says you got everything you wanted from the election so
he says i didnt want for you and abe to end up like this
i have some idea of some of the pain that you are going through
she says somehow i doubt that
he says you are not the only person who lost something
she says really, what did you lose EJ?
he says my wife



nic says
you cannot tell Ej he can not know promise me , after Dan refusing for a bit he finally
says i will promise i will not tell ej anything
but you have to think this through
she says i am protecting this baby
he says by denying the baby the right to know his or his own father?
She says when EJ is the father?
What do you think?
He says i have been there, on the other side of this
she says but that was different
do you know how many time ej claimed to love me how many times he said things were
different and i believed him
god i helped him win that stupid election

nic says i know this is going to be hard to keep a secret from ej

She says when you left town it helped you clear your head
did you figure out what to do with jennifer
your hand your career
and no one chased you to the ends of the earth to drag you back here
he says no they didn t
she says maybe i should do that leave Salem and take a mental health break
he says no you got to keep the stress on your body to a minimum
you have to be around people who care about you
she says all 2 of them?
She says you are right
i have you
you are the only one who can help me keep this baby a secret

john tells hope about working with the isa
but they didnt tell him everything
he has to meet with walsh tonight at the cafe when its close
she wants to go with him
they leave

sami says Nicole walked out on you ?good
do you expect me to care she laughs

what i had with nicole what we had was real
she says yeah a real joke
he says compared to you and your marriage maybe
she says shut up
he says my pain is no less than yours
she says you want to compare?
i lost my husband
he says you are pathetic
the only person that you ever think about is yourself
she says im the only person i can count on
he says poor old Samantha brady always the victim
i think its about time you face the truth
you have some karma coming to you
and its going to destroy you

nic says i know what im asking
he says arent you concerned of what ej will do when he finds out

she says go to hell
he says you brought all of this on yourself and you are getting what you deserve

Hope and john come into the cafe
john found the key
he says where it always was
he looks at the key and has another flashback
of dancing with princess Gina
Hope says we havent thought about this in years why does it feel like it happened yesterday
eJ says you deserve everything that is coming to you
she says you want to see me lose everything
dont you ?
EJ says i think you are long over due for some punishment
and watching your husband and son walk out of the house
she says dont you mention their names
he says you consigned yourself to this the night you shot me in the head and left me for dead
she says well i wish that i had killed you because then , none of this would have happened
he says thats highly doubtful
you would have found another way to push them out of the house
you see you are destined to live your life alone
she says god i hate you
i really rally really hate you EJ
she grunts at him and runs off


john tells Hope to shake off the memories they dont mean anything just part of stefanos games
she says i cant stop these memories they are so real like im back in the moment again
then i feel guilty
john says that was a long time ago those feelings dont exist anymore
door opens and john says glad you could make it , he turns around and says what the hell are you doing here?

She says you dont love me and i dont love you, i dont know why you insist on keeping this marriage going
he says i dont give away whats mine so easily
she says brady and i are going to be together whether you divorce me or not whether you like it or not
he says i dont like it
she says this is not the 1800s anymore you cant force me to stay married to you
he says you are free to do what ever you want
but actions are followed by consequences

guess carrie and Austin took a shower together
he says i never stopped loving you
she says she never doubted that
even when times were tough


mel tells abi
this is not ok, we have to leave here
abi says i want to show Austin he doesnt have to stay in a marriage thats destroyed

He says yeah she is having a tough time
im going to be here for the kids for her
sami says because of rafe
kate says you came back to see her?
are you going to let this little bitch get her hooks in to you again?

brady is looking for a divorce lawyer on the phone

Ian says there is nothing i can to do to stop you from divorcing me but there something i can do
brady black was the head of titan when you sent your friend sami into kates company to spy for you
she said i did that on your advice and you know it
brady didnt even know about it
he says nevertheless legally he is responsible for any decision made under his watch
well now that im head of titan it will be easy to gather enough evidence to implicate him
white collar crime is quite a misnomer but
prison is prison
she says you set me up you set this whole thing up you are such a hateful bastard
he says you are right and you are a girl with a a decision to make
how much do you love Brady black?
You better think long and hard

**************************************

Wednesday Mar 7 (Tuesday pre-empted)


Brady Pub - Part 1: Replay of Kate talking with Lucas and Sami and Kate asking if he's going to let that little bitch get her hooks into him again. Lucas is surprised - What did you just say to her? Sami repeats it declaring it to be funny. 'I thought we had buried the hatchet; now it looks like you kind of want to bury it in my back.' Lucas states that Sami said they were getting along; that you hired her to work for you. Kate stammers - We did. I don't know where that came from. It's like it was some latent reflex from the distant past. Lucas is sceptical. It had a strange feeling of déjà vu for him. Kate is really sorry. She didn't just hire Sami; she's doing a fabulous job and she loves working with her. It seemed like old times to Lucas. Kate claims it was a terrible slip. I am so sorry. Please forgive me. I promise I will never do anything like that again. Sami asks if her forgiveness matters. It does to Kate. Sami - When you said bitch in that tone that look on your face, it brings back a million bad memories. Kate is so sorry. Sami tells her it's fine. We obviously have a history but we're working together now; I thought we had trust between us. Kate understands her suspicions but thinks her actions should speak louder than her words. I did hire you and after I hired you I continued to give you more and more important projects. Obviously, at the very least, I trust you Sami. Lucas - Right, because you never have ulterior motives, right? Kate thought they had agreed to let the past be in the past. Kate asks if Sami told him what they were working on together. No. Kate - See, that's because I asked her not to tell anyone. She tells him about the mole and that she asked Sami to help ferret out the person. Now tell me my feelings for Sami haven't changed. Lucas asks Sami if that's true. Kate declares - Of course. Deep down Sami knows I wouldn't give her something so important to do if I didn't feel that she was family. Sami decides she should leave them to talk. She has so much work to catch up on. After Sami steps away Kate tells Lucas that Sami is so dedicated and disciplined. I think we've both changed. Lucas is still not buying it - The more things change, the more they stay the same.


Hospital - Dan's office - Part 1: Jennifer peeks in and sees Dan going through paperwork. She recalls telling him about Jack's decision that they weren't good for each other. She asks Dan if he's busy. He invites her in. They talk about their earlier meeting and they both agree that it was awkward. Jen wants to make sure that everything is okay. Dan says everything is fine. Jen reminds him that when he left he mentioned staying in touch, staying friends. He asks about the postcard he sent. Yes she got it but she didn't get a 'best wishes' or 'sincerely'. Dan says she has to know that he sincerely wishes her the best. Jen - Likewise. This is so crazy. I used to think I knew everything about you. Dan asks her what she wants to know. Jen wants to know what he was doing while he was gone. Dan - I surfed and did more surfing, went to Hawaii and surfed so more. Just me and the waves and my board. Jen tells him he looks great. Dan apologises for not keeping in touch better; he had a lot on his mind. He had so much to work through - you, my career and my life. I'm getting there. If I seemed a little stand-offish with you it's because I need to put some distance between us, you know that. Part of me was thinking that if I saw you all those feelings would start rushing back to me - I was afraid. I don't think my heart could take being crushed again.


HTS - Part 1: Bo leaves a message for Hope telling her he misses his wife and his partner. He mentions how he could use her on this stakeout. Roman walks up and reminds Bo he's not assigned to go so what was he just talking about. Roman wants to know what his plan for the Moroni's is. Bo wants to run them out of town. He lists their criminal activities. I don't see them as a real asset to the community. Roman repeats that he is not assigned to the Moroni stakeout. Roman heard through certain chanels that Bo was planning to search one of their warehouses without a warrant. Bo plays innocent - Why would I do that? Roman - Because the word on the street is that they are storing a large shipment of drugs. Bo makes sarcastic comments about them sitting by and not disturbing the workings of commerce. Roman replies 'what we don't want to do is go rogue because that would be really, really stupid'. Bo asks him what makes him think he'd go rogue. Roman says maybe because he's done it 3,000 times before and he knows that the Moroni's drive him crazy. Bo agrees that he has a problem with arrogant scum. Roman points out that if he goes to that warehouse without a warrant he will almost guarantee that they get away with this. Bo asks what the alternative is - he makes several sarcastic suggestions. All Roman is saying is that they do this by the book. Bo argues that the Moroni's have informants in the PD. You pull a warrant, that will give them plenty of time to move the drugs. Would you just work with me on this? Just forget you ran into me. I'll go take a look at the warehouse, you'll get an anonymous tip ... Roman - Damn it Bo. Look what happened to Abe, didn't that teach you anything? What Abe did was wrong, what you're contemplating is wrong. Bo argues that selling drugs to kids is wrong and it's got to stop. Roman snaps that if Bo goes into that warehouse he'll be breaking the law and the Moroni's will profit from it just like EJ did. Do you want a major lawsuit against the department when we can't afford it? Do you want to lose your badge? There are reasons we have to follow the rules. Bo - Yeah, and most of them benefit the Moroni's. Roman shrugs - It's all moot anyways. I've already got the warrant. I can legally go search that warehouse. Would you care to join me? Bo is frustrated - What the hell was this about - a civics lesson? Roman - You are my little brother, I try to guide you. I know you hate me but are you going to come with me or not? Bo - Why? When you pulled that warrant, Moroni moved the drugs someplace else. Roman knows the Moroni's may have informants inside the department but he got this warrant from Judge Wyndham personally and he also handpicked the stakeout team - everyone of which he would trust his life to. They're waiting for me at the warehouse. Are you in or out? Bo is in. Roman knew he could count on him. Bo wants to be there to say 'I told you so.'


Alamania - Part 1: Hope paces in their hotel room as John assures her there isn't a trace of Walsh's DNA in this room; nothing that can link him to them. Hope - It's alright then that Stefano just showed up and then coincidentally a dead body just shows up in their room. John tells her that the ISA got all the evidence, sanitized the room and after the autopsy they'll return his body to his family. Hope recalls finding Walsh in their room. John asks if she's okay. Hope - What if it was you in that chair? How do you think Marlena would react if a representative of the government showed up at her doorstep to deliver the bad news. John declares they have enough to worry about without going there. An ISA agent he was supposed to meet shows up dead right after Stefano rolls into town. Walsh was taken out because of me. Hope argues that this isn't his fault. John disagrees. Walsh is dead because he was trying to help him. He feels like he lured Walsh right into a trap. Hope tells him to blame the person that set the trap, not himself. John is going to find out who did this and how they are tied to Stefano. The man has a lot of gall showing up here. Hope wonders why he's surprised; Stefano loves to push their buttons. John says they have one dead agent and Spencer who also seems to be MIA. Hope - Do you think he might be ... John cuts in - I wouldn't rule it out. Hope needs to know the whole story before someone else winds up dead. Or don't you trust me enough to tell me what's really going on here. John insists it's not a matter of trust; it's confidentiality. Hope asks if it's because his former colleagues at the ISA are involved. John - Not former; current. I'm back on board. Actually I never left. Hope - What? You're undercover for the ISA? And I'm just finding out about this now? Don't you think that I had a right to know? John - Let me explain ... Hope angrily exclaims, 'No, I don't think you can. I'm stuck in this godforsaken country with a spy who's in the middle of a case who technically happens to be my husband. As if things couldn't get any worse, bodies are now piling up. John isn't happy about this. He was inactive for years. The last thing he expected was for them to bring him back in. They called and said they needed him. At first he said no way in hell then they told him why they came to him. There was a lot of chatter inside the DiMera organization. Something big was happening. The chatter escalated on election day but then on the day Stefano thought his son was going to be elected Mayor he suddenly left town. Hope agrees that is very out of character for Stefano. John - Bottom line, whatever is going on, it's important enough for Stefano to be here. Hope - Why am I getting the feeling that whatever this thing is, it involves us?


Brady Pub - Part 2: Lucas and Kate sit down at a table. Kate hopes he can put this behind him. She doesn't want it spoiling the time they have together. Lucas - So why don't you stop being so nasty to Sami and stop treating me like I'm 12. Kate is sorry that he took it that way. She's now going to make a determined effort to change the subject. Why didn't you bring your fiancée with you? Lucas says she had to work. Kate - Are you sure it wasn't because you didn't want her to meet me? Lucas - Or vice versa since you have a tendency to try and murder the women I get involved with. Kate thought they were putting the past in the past. It seems to her that he decided to come to Salem on the spur of the moment. Lucas states that Sami needs him. Kate scoffs - So you drop everything and come here. Lucas - It's really hard to leave the past in the the past when the present is exactly the same. I'm not just here for Sami. I'm here for my children too. Will needs me. I'm worried about him. Kate tells him not to - she can take care of Will. Lucas - Really? He's working for EJ. He's driving a car that EJ gave him. He's living in an apartment that EJ gave him. I think something has already happened to him and I'm going to find out what it is. Kate is absolutely thrilled that he wants to be of a presence in Will's life but she doesn't want Sami and all of her problems dragging him down again. Lucas - One minute you're telling me she's your saviour at work and the next you're telling me to stay away from her? Kate - Professionally, she's making her mark at CW; personally, I don't want her to sideline you. Lucas wants the truth. Are you really happy that she's working for you or is there something else going on here?

At the bar Kayla asks Sami how it is seeing Lucas again. Sami - It's weird. We've known each other for so long and he likes me for who I am. Kayla - What about Kate? Sami asks her if she really thinks people can change. Kayla does. Look at your Uncle Steve but in my experience, it doesn't happen as often as you'd like to think. Kate tells Lucas that she loves working with Sami. Lucas wonders about that outburst about Sami trying to get her hooks into him. Kate can't help it, she's still a little overprotective of him. The two of them have a long history, most of it bad, she saw them together and overreacted. Lucas says it's not all bad and it wasn't all her fault. Kate can't help it - she doesn't want to see him go down that road again.


Alamania - Part 2: John thinks Hope is right. Hope says they're in enough trouble and now the case he's working on may actually involve them. You have to tell me what else you know. John says it's not much. All he was told was that he better watch his back until he meets with Walsh and gets all the details. Hope - Details you never got because he ended up dead in our hotel room. John adds - Right after Stefano followed us to Alamania. And now Spencer seems to have gone off the grid as well. Hope - We're stuck here, separated from our loved ones. You know what this sounds like. John - Hell, or a hell of a challenge. He was really hoping this little trip to Alamania would turn out to be nothing more than Stefanlo messing with their lives, trying to break up their marriages. Then when he saw that man walk into the cafe where he was supposed to meet Walsh ... Hope - Who turned up dead in our hotel room. John - Kind of tells you something big is going on. For Stefano, breaking up our marriages would be a happy by-product of a bigger plan. Hope says that Stefano never limited himself to one little goal; he relishes in destroying people's lives, especially yours. John - He wants Marlena because I took away his Gina. That's what this is about. Hope can't believe how strong Marlena is. I think the last thing she would want is you being back with the ISA. John admits that she doesn't know he is. Hope asks why he'd keep it a secret from her. John - Because I love it and she hates it. She would be so upset if she knew I was going after Stefano. Hope - Of course she'd be upset. Look what happened to Walsh. John - When you deal with Stefano, the stakes are always life and death.


HTS - Part 2: Bo and Roman are exiting the square through the archway when they are attacked by some thugs. Roman and Bo are left bloodied and unconscious.


Hospital - Dan's office - Part 2: Jen apologises; she shouldn't have come here. Dan protests. This is good. We should talk. I have a lot of things I need to say. He thought he put on a pretty good show when he left Salem; letting people see he was doing great, coping with everything that he had thrown at him. When he looked at his reflection in the water - instead of peaceful images people talk about - he saw one angry man. Jen understands that. She doesn't blame him for being angry with her, she's mad at herself. Dan insists he isn't mad at her, it's life - getting so close to having a future with someone and then having it ripped from his hands. I know I walked away from this. Jen says he did that because she couldn't decide - that's her fault. Dan - When Jack came back, I think I knew that it wasn't meant to be but I had to come home and see you face to face to make sure I didn't have any regrets. And to see if I have those feelings everytime I looked at you. I don't, not anymore. Jen is glad they talked. Dan - Please know I never meant to hurt you. Jen assures him she's good. Dan asks her to please look at him. She does. Dan cares about her very much and when she said she hoped they could stay friends .. Jen - You thought I meant something superficial, just acquaintances that want the best for each other. Dan - No. I meant as friends. Can we do that? Jen wants that - I will always be your friend.


Brady Pub - Part 3: Lucas tells Kate that he is in love with Autumn. Kate scoffs - You're always falling in love. You know the one constant in your life? That's Sami's ability to play you. Lucas sarcastically responds how he always enjoys their talks and how much she trusts him. Kate insists that she does trust him when he's thousands of miles away from Sami. All she's saying is that he has a chance to have a wonderlife life with his fiancée and it concerns her that he rushed back here to be with Sami. Lucas reminds her that he and Sami have kids together. We are bonded for life, like it or not. We happen to be friends too. Kate scoffs. She saw the way Sami looked at him and it wasn't friendship. She recently separated from her husband. She's lonely and miserable. All I'm asking is that you be careful. Lucas and Kate join Sami at the bar. Lucas is going to take his mom home unless Sami needs him. Sami tells him it's fine; she's swamped with work. Kate asks if she's overworking her. Sami didn't mean it like that. Kate lays it on thick - Tell me if you are. When you're dedicated and loyal like you are, I don't want to take advantage. Sami assures her she's not. Kate smiles - Just imagine, if you find the person that's been stabbing me in the back while Lucas is in town, the three of us could celebrate together. Lucas tells Sami he'll talk to her later. He knows she's under a lot of pressure. He promises to be here as long as she needs him. Sami thanks him for everything. They hug as Kate watches.


HTS - Part 3: Roman comes to and he's obviously in a lot of pain. He tries to get a response from Bo. Bo coughs - Roman is relieved. He calls out for help. He tells Bo to stay with him as he lifts Bo off the ground.

Kate and Lucas stroll through the square after Kate has given him a tour of CW's space. She tells him she has big plans. Lucas - Which obviously include Sami. I never thought I'd see you guys on the same team. Kate says when she thinks of Sami now she thinks 'expect the unexpected.' Lucas - Me too.


Brady Pub - Part 3: Kayla says it was great to see Lucas again. Sami says the kids will be happy to see him - they miss Rafe. Kayla thinks it will be great for Allie to spend time with her dad. She asks how long he's in town for. Sami doesn't know. He'll have to get back to his fiancée some time. Kayla can't believe that Sami isn't - Sami jumps in - Upset? I'm not. I'm happy for him. It's nice to have someone in your life that has something going for them. Sami says that when she asked if people could change she meant herself. Maybe it's too late to make a change. Kayla tells her it's never to late.


Alamania - Part 3: John - Now you know everything I know. I don't know when we're going to get back to Salem but I have to ask you to keep everything I told you confidential. Hope - Is that code for don't tell Marlena you're still in the ISA. John is sorry to put her in that position. Hope says how and when he tells Marlena is up to him - but you do have to tell her. John knows. Hope keeps on pushing - Not only does she need to know, it's dangerous for her ... John knows! John is upset that no one has contacted him. Something big is going on - he can feel it. Walsh knew it too, that's why he's dead. Hope - What if the same thing happened to Spencer? She agrees that something big is going on, that's why she wants to help. I'm already in this up to my eyeballs. John argues. The only reason he let her go to the cafe is because he didn't have a choice. He knew she would follow him. Now we have a man who is dead; I will not put you at risk. Hope - I'm already at risk. John snaps - More risk! If anything happened to you Bo would never forgive me. Absolutely not, it's too dangerous. Hope thinks he's forgetting who he's talking to. You need help. I'm a cop, a good one. John - A great one but ... Hope - I can take care of myself. Your partner is dead. You can't do this on your own. She also reminds him that he just spent 2 years in a wheelchair - he's not fully recovered. John insists that he's fine. He just doesn't want her involved. Hope - I'm already involved. If something happens to you then I'm all alone here in Alamania. Then what the hell happens to me? John states she can't work with him without ISA clearance. Hope - That's bull. You can't do this on your own. Do you want to end up like Walsh? Do you want to go home to Marlena in a body bag?


Brady Pub - Part 4: Roman comes in carrying Bo - I need some help. Kayla and Sami rush over. Sami frets over her dad as Kayla looks at Bo and tells at Sami to call 911. Kayla tells Bo - Don't you dare die on me! Sami rushes over with Kayla's medical bag. Kayla asks Roman what happened. Roman tells her they got pistol whipped by Moroni's men he thinks. They went down, they started kicking them - that's the last thing he can remember. Kayla is very concerned about Bo. Roman yells - Tell me he's going to be okay. Kayla - There's no pulse. She starts CPR. Roman - Don't let him die! Sami starts saying the 'Our Father' prayer. Roman and Sami continue praying as Kayla works on Bo. Sami tells them the ambulance is here. Kayla says she's got a good pulse but then he goes into convulsions. Oh no!

******************************************

Thursday Mar 8

Nicole's hotel room: Nicole places a room service order - Yes that's right! Two sundaes and one spoon. She recalls Daniel telling her that she is pregnant. When there is a knock on the door she assumes it's room service but it's EJ. She tells him to go away and tries to close the door but he stops her. He's so sorry. Nicole repeats that she wants him to go. EJ is insistent. All he wants is 5 mins to apologise for his actions. Nicole - By actions, do you mean sleeping with Sami? EJ states that he made a colossal mistake; one he'll regret for the rest of his life. We have to get past this. Please come home with me. Nicole snaps - Never! Do you really not get what you did? EJ - I committed an indiscretion with someone who means absolutely, bloody nothing to me. Nothing! And I'm bloody well not going to lose you over this. He pushes his way into her room. You can't let one ghastly mistake cost us our entire future. Nicole - It wasn't a mistake! You don't accidentally go to bed with someone. EJ claims they were overcome with grief. The television was on telling them that his son's body had been identified. Nicole sarcastically retorts - So you did what anyone would do under those circumstances, you made love. EJ argues that they didn't make love. We had sex! I loathe that woman just as much as she loathes me. You have to know that. Nicole scoffs - So that makes everything better? EJ needs her to understand exactly what happened
between the two of them so that she can begin to forgive him. Nicole exclaims - Do you know how many times I have done that? I forgave you when you dumped me for my sister and you promised me that you'd never cheat on me again. And God help me I believed you. My hat's off to you EJ because you managed to drive that knife even deeper. You slept with the one woman I despise the most in this world. EJ asks if she can please give him a chance to make it up to her. Nicole cries - Why? So you can patch my heart back together so you can tear it apart again. No thanks, I will pass this time. EJ promises he will never hurt her again; let him prove that to her. Nicole - No, EJ not this time. It's pretty embarrassing you know. I'm no smarter than those voters who pulled the lever for you on election day. You promised them and me our heart's desire knowing full well you couldn't deliver. Lucky for me I'm not stuck with you for the next four years. I get to pretend that you never existed. Time's up. Get out. EJ sits on the bed declaring he's not going anywhere. That's fine with Nicole. She'll leave and she does.


John & Marlena's townhouse - Part 1: Marlena leaves John a message to call her; she's getting a little worried. She gets a text from Will. He wants a rematch. The word is knock and coincidentally there's a knock on the door. It's Will carrying a bag. Since she's alone and missing John he thought they'd ditch the e-game and duel it out the old fashioned way. He pulls out a Scrabble game. He tells her this is the board she taught him how to spell on when he was young; something his mother probably should have done. Marlena replies that his mom was incredibly busy. Will - She sucks at spelling anyways. Marlena laughs almost choking on her tea. She comments that they never finished the conversation they were having when his mother walked in. Will tries to avoid it but Marlena points out that he did the hardest part already by telling her he was drawn to someone else. Will - Yeah I kissed him. Marlena - And? Will - Isn't that enough? He sits in an chair and swivels it around so his back is to her. Marlena can understand that he doesn't want to have this conversation with his grandmother. Will faces her. That's not it. It's hard for me to put it into words. Marlena thinks he liked that young man and there was something appealing about him for you. Will says he was nice and easy to talk to. I didn't plan on it happening, it just did. Marlena asks if he saw him again. Will says no. Marlena tells him it's okay if he did. Marlena is just guessing but he's acting like he feels guilty; like he did something wrong. Will states that he did do something wrong. I can't change it but I can make sure it never happens again. Marlena thinks he's letting his head make a decision for his heart. Will - No offense, but for a very smart therapist you're beginning to sound like my fortune cookie. Marlena laughs. What she means is don't overanalyze something that was a natural impulse; something that happened in the moment. Will replies that he was drunk. Marlena knows. And that kiss meant something to you. The sooner you figure out what that is, the sooner you'll get comfortable with yourself. Will - What if I can't? What then?


HTS - Part 1: Jack and Jen are talking about JJ and how good his grades are and how much he loves boarding school (which surprises them both). Jack comments that he better love it especially at those prices. Jen misses him so much but he's happy and that's important. Jack was thinking about the first time Alice laid eyes on him. She called him a ... Jen jumps in - "A keeper." Jack says she was right; she was always right. Jen states that she's supposed to meet Maggie here. Today would have been grandma and grandpa's 72th wedding anniversary. Jack asks if she minds if he sticks around. Jen doesn't. Jack imagines that Maggie is happy that Daniel is back in town. Jen is sure she is as well as Melanie. Jack was going to ask how she felt about Daniel being back but judging by her expression he thinks he already knows. Jen is fine with Daniel being home. He's back on staff at the hospital; he's not doing surgery. Jack - And? He adds that she's holding something back. He only says that because when she holds something back she does this thing with her mouth. Jen is doing that 'thing' with her mouth as she is saying that she doesn't do that. Jack tells her it's cute but it's a dead giveaway every time. Jen claims she doesn't know what he's talking about. Jack - It's me Jennifer. If there's anything bothering you about Daniel you can tell me.


Brady Pub - Part 1: Kayla is still adminstering CPR as Roman is asking her what's happening. Kayla can't find a pulse. Daniel comes in wondering what the EMT's are doing outside. He sees Kayla working on Bo and asks what happened. Kayla tells him that Bo was beaten. Dan takes over CPR; Kayla asks Bo if he can hear her.


Alamania - Part 1: At the cafe Hope shows Stefano's picture around asking a woman if she's seen this man. She looks past Hope as Stefano comes in. Stefano greets her just as John comes in prompting Stefano to remark - 'Look who's not far behind; the ever doting husband.' Stefano gathers that they've been looking for him.


Hospital - Part 1: Bo is now in a hospital bed. Roman is at the foot of the bed, Dan and Kayla at his side. When the nurse comes in Kayla automatically orders some tests - Dan adds some to the list as well. Kayla then suggests to Roman that they leave Dan to do his work. Outside the room Roman asks if Bo is going to be okay. Kayla replies that they got his BP up by pumping fluids into him. She thinks he's doing as well as can be expected right now. Roman is worried about losing him. Kayla suggests that he get checked out. Roman is fine; he's not leaving here until Bo wakes up. He is going to wake up, right? Silence. Roman - You're not answering my question. Kayla can't promise him that Bo is going to be alright but she can knows he's in the best possible hands. She insists that Roman take care of himself too. Roman feels responsible for dragging Bo into this. If she hadn't been there when he dragged Bo into the pub ... Kayla states that Roman saved Bo's life. If he had waited where they were for the paramedics, they would have lost him. She asks if he knows how she can get hold of Hope. Roman tried but couldn't get a call through to Alamania. How am I going to break this to her? Dan comes out and updates them on what they've done adding that his x-rays show his chest is clear. Kayla explains to Roman that they're trying to hold off doing surgery on his internal injuries. Roman asks about his head. Dan says there is some swelling; they have to wait until it subsides. He promises they will do everything they can to make sure Bo survives. Kayla tells Roman he's stable which is better than he was an hour ago. Kayla is going to update mom. After she leaves Roman asks Dan if he can go in and see him. Dan tells him not to stay to long - Bo needs his rest. Roman goes to Bo and say Damn it, you win. You scared the hell out of your big brother so wake up now. Hope doesn't know yet so please give me some good news to tell her. I am so sorry. I walked us right into that ambush but I promise you that we will find the bastards that did this and they will pay.


Alamania - Part 2: John wonders why an ISA agent wound up dead shortly after Stefano pulled into town. If you didn't kill him yourself it was still on your orders. Stefano thinks they should find a private place if they're going to discuss this. John scoffs - Like we'd go anywhere with you. Stefano laughs - Actually, I insist. He trains a gun on them. I think we should have this conversation out of the public eye. Hope tells him he's completely out of his mind if he thinks they're going to walk into a trap he's set for them. John says - The same kind of trap you set for Agent Walsh. Hope - If you're going to kill us you'll have to do it right here. Stefano - I have no intention of killing you, at least not yet. For the record I had nothing to do with Agent Walsh's death. John scoffs. You knew he was investigating you and you took him out. Hope asks if he really expects them to believe that him showing up on the day the agent died was just a coincidence. John wonders why he's holding them at gunpoint if he nothing to do with Walsh's death. Stefano claims it's for his own protection. John steps closer - Stefano warns him to step back. John says you know I'd snap your neck before you pulled the trigger. You programmed some amazing talents into my brain and I remember every second I spent as your pawn. You trained me to be a highly efficient killing machine so if you don't tell me what I want to know right now I just might have to resort back to those ways. Stefano asks why it is whenever something bad happens they always assume that he is responsible. Hope retorts - Because you always are. Stefano reminds them that he's the one that got John off the embezzlement charge. John wants to know why he followed them here. Why don't you cut to the chase so we can get to the end game. Stefano claims they are jumping to wrong conclusions. Hope asks why he's there then. He knew they were coming to end this bogus marriage. Stefano says they can call the marriage bogus but if his memory serves him right they were very much in love. Yes he did some manipulating but when it comes to your own feelings, they were very much yours. You two fell in love on your own.


Brady Pub - Part 2: Rafe is at a table with Sydney on his lap and Johnny and Allie sitting across from them. When he heard they were going to be spending the night here he asked if he could tuck them in. Allie asks him why he doesn't tuck them in at home anymore. Johnny pipes up - Because mommy made him mad, right? Rafe explains that sometimes mommy's and daddy's don't get along so they're just taking a time out. That's why he's not staying with them right now. Allie asks if that's why her Daddy came back. Rafe says no, Lucas came back because he loves you and he misses you so much just like I love and miss you so much. I won't be gone long or be far away. Scout's honour.


HTS - Part 2: Jack surmises that Daniel heard that they weren't together and he made a major play to get Jennifer back. Jen says not at all. He said that he was afraid that if he saw me it would bring up old feelings but it didn't. So that's it. He's totally and completely over me. Jack returns to the table with a bouquet of roses saying 'your grandmother loved her roses.' Jen thanks him; she can't believe he remembered. She thanks him for caring enough to ask about Daniel. Jack saw that it hurt her. Jen tells him it's okay. It was my own fault. Jack doesn't like seeing her hurt. Maybe it's none of my business but it's his loss.


Hospital - Part 2: Roman is on the phone with Kayla. She's right, Ma shouldn't see Bo like this. He asks if she got hold of Victor and asks her to keep trying to get through to Hope. He goes back into Bo's room as Dan is giving an order for meds. Roman asks what's going on. Dan tells him there's increased pressure on Bo's brain; he doesn't want him to have a seizure. When the nurse informs him the EEG is at 23 Dan orders 'manitol' NOW! The nurses tells Dan that the intercranial pressure is down. Dan tells Roman that they're keeping the edema under control as he's examining Bo's eyes. Roman asks if something is wrong. Dan tells him that his pupils aren't reacting to light. I'm afraid to tell you but Bo has slipped into a coma. Roman reacts. Dan tells him it's not necessarily bad news. It's his body telling us that it needs time to cope with his injuries. Bo needs to rest. Stay positive - positive energy is good. Roman urges Bo to get better for Ciara and Hope; they need you.


John & Marlena's townhouse - Part 2: Will always thought that he'd get married, have kids, be normal. Marlena states that he is perfectly, beautifully, delicously normal. All you have to do is figure out who you are and fall in love with that person. It's not easy but if anyone can do it, it's you. Marlena gets a call from Roman. She asks if he's heard from John, she's been trying to reach him. Roman tells her this is about Bo. He was attacked. He's in a coma.


HTS - Part 3: Maggie greets Jen and Jack. She asks if this means that the two of them are ... Jack - We are friends and parents of two great kids. He hopes she doesn't mind him tagging along. Not at all. Alice would say the more, the merrier. Maggie tears up as she looks at the plaque. Can you believe they would have been married 72 years today. If it wasn't for Tom and Alice I might not have stuck it out with Mickey. They always had a way of making everything right. Cue flashbacks of Tom and Alice. Maggie hugs Jen - They're still here.


Hospital - Part 3: Roman comes back into Bo's room and asks what the tests showed. Dan tells him they won't get most of the results until tomorrow. He suggests that Roman go home and get some rest as he was attacked too. Marlena walks in with Will - You were hurt too? Roman tells her he's fine. Will asks Roman what happened. We tried to surprise some bad guys; they beat us to it. Roman tells Marlena he's been trying to reach Hope all evening. Kayla is still trying to get through. Marlena hasn't been able to reach John either. Marlena leaves another message for John. She asks Roman - What if something's happened to him. Roman is sure it's just lousy phone service. Marlena asks Dan to step outside. Roman tells Bo if he needed some time off, all he had to do was ask. You rest and you get better. I know you haven't listened to me one time in your entire life but now would be a good time to start. Please get better. Marlena asks Dan doctor to doctor - how is Bo? Dan really can't be sure. Marlena knows that if Hope were here and he could feel her presence and love it would make a difference.


Alamania - Part 3: John tells Stefano his denials, his cover-ups and his attempt to put a wedge between him and Marlena and Bo and Hope isn't going to work. You wanted us here without Marlena and Bo for a reason and now you're going to tell us what it is. Stefano makes a joke about his master plan to get them here so he could blow up the Horton Square. Hope and John argue with him that he knew they would come here. John mentions that they were ordered to surrender their passports when they got here. Hope adds they can't even get calls through to the States - all of it reeks of you.


HTS - Part 4: Nicole rests her hand over her stomach just as EJ comes up from behind and puts his hand on her shoulder. She asks him if he's stalking her now. You better walk away right now or I will start screaming at the top of my lungs. EJ asks if they could please go somewhere and talk about this in private. You need to hear what I have to say? Nicole declares that she doesn't need to do anything. She's never going to give him another chance to hurt her again. She starts walking away. When he grabs her hand she pulls away warning him not to touch her. Rafe comes along - You heard what she said. Get your hands off her. Rafe asks Nicole if she's okay. EJ tells him to get lost. This is between me and Nicole. Rafe - The lady asked you to leave. EJ warns him to mind his own business. Rafe - Or what? EJ - You'll find out exactly what happens when you interfere in a private conversation between a man and his wife. Rafe laughs - Okay Mr. Mayor, is that a threat? Because considering what you've done to me it seems kind of ass backwards. EJ - I really don't think you want to be going there Rafe. Rafe - Going where? Talking about the fact that you slept with my wife, ruined my life, my marriage ... is that what you mean? EJ tells him to keep his voice down. Rafe - Right, because you don't want your consituents to hear about the real you at least not until you're officially in office. EJ makes a smart remark which prompts Rafe to say he should rearrange his face again. When EJ asks if he's threatening him Rafe replies - Yeah, I am. EJ - I'm not quaking in my boots in case you haven't noticed. Rafe - Maybe not tonight, maybe not this week or this month, but trust me the day will come when you are because I've lost everything. You've taken everything that matters from me and I'm not going to rest until you feel the same way although from the looks of things maybe you already are. Now either you leave the lady alone or I'm going to call my buddy at the Spectator and give him a scoop for the morning edition. EJ tells Nicole this isn't over. I'm not giving up on you. He leaves. Nicole assures Rafe that she's fine. She thanks him for showing up when he did. Rafe felt like wringing EJ's neck. Nicole knows how he feels. Rafe asks if she needs a lift home. Nicole says her home is a hotel room close by. Rafe asks if she has cell phone number; she can all if she needs anything. She does. He gave it to her in case there was an emergency with the kids. This is what Rafe hates the most - how it affects them. Nicole - They're so innocent. Rafe - Yeah. We should try and protect them from our mistakes. Nicole agrees. She asks him to tell Johnny and Sydney that she loves them. I should go, I have some melting ice cream waiting for me. Rafe - Excuse me? Nicole - Nothing. Thank you.


Hospital - Part 4: Dan leaves to go on his rounds. Roman comes out and asks what they had to talk about that couldn't be said in front of him. You keep saying he's optmistic but that isn't true, is it? Marlena doesn't know. I'm afraid it's not looking terribly good.


Alamania - Part 4: Stefano continues to deny having any plan. Hope gets a ring on her cell phone - 16 messages. She listens - God, Bo's in the hospital. He's been beaten. She tries to call the hospital but can't get through. There's no signal. We're completely powerless. John - We're going home.

**********************************************

Friday Mar 9

Green Mountain Lodge - Part 1: Melanie decides to get a massage. Abigail can't, she has plans. Mel reminds her that she promised not to bother Austin while he's here with his wife. Abby insists her plans have nothing to do with Austin. Don't be suspicious. Mel points out that Abby tricked her into coming here so she could be with her crush. Abby insists that Austin is NOT a crush. We have real feelings for each other. Mel - Yeah, or maybe a slight obsession on your part. Abby says they came here to chill out and relax; let's do that. I'll meet up with you later. Mel asks what she's going to do while she's getting her massage. Abby tells her she'll be on her best behaviour.

In their room Austin and Carrie toast each other with mimosa's. Carrie has to leave; she got a free massage. There was a knock at the door and she found these mimosas and a note saying she had won a free massage. It's for this morning so she has to go now. Austin is so happy to see her relaxed and so happy. Carrie feels coming here was just what they needed to get their marriage back on track. She thanks him for planning the trip and for being such a romantic husband. After some more kisses Carrie says she has to go. Austin tells her to hurry back; he wants to spend the entire day with her. They banter a bit about what they'll do and then she leaves. As soon as Carrie leaves Abby comes out of the shadows and goes to their door.


HTS - Part 1: Kate meets up with Chad and Gabi and tells her she's taking the ad campaign in a whole new direction. Gabi asks if this is another of Sami's brilliant ideas. No, the idea came from the co-CEO of Countess W. Chad asks who it is. Kate replies - Someone who has intimate knowledge of the line. Lucas comes up and greets her. Chad greets Lucas. Gabi asks if he's the new co-CEO. Kate says 'actually here comes your co-CEO right now." She wraps her arms around Bille; "The original founder of Countess W, my daughter Billie Reed." Billie shakes both Gabi and Chad's hand. Kate points out that the photographer is ready for them. They leave. Lucas gives Billie a big hug. Billie tells him that coming here was a little bit of a last minute decision. Lucas asks if she's really going to be Mom's partner. Billie hasn't been able to get Countess W out of her mind ever since Kate asked her permission to reboot the company. I missed my baby and then Kate called and practically begged her to come. Kate asks how Chelsea took the news. Billie says that Chelsea has Max; she's going to be fine. Lucas asks if she's here for good. Billie replies - We'll see. If Kate has anything to do with it she'll be here for a long, long time. She still can't believe she has both of them here along with Austin. It's like a dream come true.


Madison's hotel room - Part 1: Brady greets Madison with a kiss. He tells her it's going to be a great morning. He found her a divorce lawyer. It's going to be sticky but he basically said you'll be able to retain control of Mad World. Madison stops him. She has something to tell him. It's very important. First of all I want to say that I appreciate everything you've done for me. Brady says she doesn't ever have to say that because he loves her and they're going to work this thing out. Madison wants him to let her finish. Brady is sorry. It's just that he's anxious and excited to get their life going. Everything is going to be fine; don't worry about it. Ian comes in. You didn't tell me lover boy was joining us for breakfast. If I had known I would have brought him his own muffin.


HTS - Part 2: Chad and Gabi are on the couch in the square as the photographer clicks away. Lucas is going to leave them to their work but Kate asks him to stay; they'd like his input. Lucas will but first he has to try and get a hold of Will; he hasn't returned any of his calls yet. He steps away. Kate asks Billie what she thinks. The clothes and the hair - all reading too clean, scrubbed college town to her. Billie stops the shoot - she wants to loosen this up up. She makes adjustment to Gabi's and Chad's clothing and hair and tells them to sit closer together, entwine and look at each other like they're hot for each other. She says great. Kate tells Billie she hasn't lost her touch. The best thing I did was bring you back here. With us working as a team Madison and her devious company don't stand a chance. Billie watches the shoot. We're lucky to have a real life couple. The love in Gabi's eyes goes right through that lens. Chad stops the shoot to inform Billie that they're not a couple; he's dating someone else. Billie is sorry; they have amazing chemistry. Gabi says she was just pretending; trying to give them what they wanted. Billie tells Kate she hopes she has them signed to an exclusive contract.


Madison's hotel room - Part 2: Brady tells Ian he's not staying for breakfast; neither is Madison. In fact we're leaving and we're not coming back here. Ian makes a smart remark that the least Madison could do is pay her large room service bill that's she's racked up over the months. Brady states "She is divorcing you. We are in love. There's nothing you can do to stop that." Ian calmly remarks he won't stand in their way. All he wants is Madison to be happy; so be it. He remarks that Madison is being awfully quiet. Brady retorts that she has nothing to say to him. Ian - On the contrary she has something very important to say to me. If she intends to leave me for you I want to hear it from her lips. So my love do you really mean to leave me for Mr. Black? Brady tells Madison to tell Ian what they discussed. Tell him that he no longer has control over you and we are in love. Ian wants him to let his wife speak for herself. Madison tells Brady that Ian is right. I can speak for myself. What I want to say is I'm sorry Brady. I'm not going anywhere. I'm just telling you something I should have told you a long time ago. I have no intention of leaving my husband. Brady says you can't be serious; you don't love this guy. Madison says she does. That's what I was trying to tell you earlier but you wouldn't let me finish. I love my husband very much. Brady - Since when? Madison - Since always. We have a very complicated relationship; we've hit some rough patches but underneath it all we're very deeply connected. Brady - No you're not. You hate his guts. Madison admits that she was angry with him for staying away so long; she was just looking for a distraction. Ian makes a smart remark and Brady tells him to shut up; he's not talking to him. Madison asks him not to make this harder than it has to be. Brady isn't buying it. This is bull. Why don't you tell me what's really going on?


Green Mountain Lodge - Part 2: Austin is standing wearing nothing but a towel when there's a knock on the door - Room Service. He shouts out that they didn't order anything. Knock again. He opens the door - it's Abigail. She waltzes into the room. He stops her and tells her they're not doing this again. She sits on the bed. We're just hanging out. I just wanted to have breakfast together. Austin can't believe she came here. What if Carrie was here. Abby smiles - But she's not here. The way I see it we have this big old room all to ourselves.

Carrie drops her wallet and a bunch of cards fall out. She stares at the business card she had for her and Rafe's firm. Mel comes in and asks her what she's looking at. Carrie was just reminding herself that now that she's no longer working with Rafe she needs to get new business cards. Carrie has to run or she's going to miss her massage.

Austin tries to drag her off the bed. Carrie could be back at any minute. Abby states that she won't be back for at least an hour. Austin asks how she knows how long it's going to be. He realises Abby planned this. She arranged for Carrie to get the free massage. Why would you do that? Abby tries to go in his arms but Austin tells her to stay away from him. Abby did it so they could be close to each other; so he could remember what it's like to be with her. Austin raises his voice. I don't want to hurt your feelings but enough is enough. You need to back off. In fact, I want you to stay the hell away from me. Abigail chokes up - I can't believe you're treating me like this after what we shared together. Austin - I really don't know how to make you understand. The night we spent together shouldn't have happened. It was a mistake and I wish I could take it back. I don't mean to be so harsh but I don't know how else to get it through your head. Abigail - You don't mean that. You're just saying that because you feel guilty. You feel bad because you cheated on Carrie. I get that. You're a good guy and I understand that but you can not let your obligation to Carrie stand in the way of our happiness. We could be really good together. Austin - You're not really hearing what I'm saying. I love Carrie. I am committed to my marriage. If she ever found out what happened between us ... Look, do you care about me the way that you say you do? Because if you do, here's what you're going to do. You're going to walk out the door right now and not look back. Don't do it for me. Do it for yourself. Forget that you ever met me because honestly, that's what I intend to do. Abby slaps him.


HTS - Part 3: Melanie talks to Chad on the phone. After the call Gabi asks how Melanie is doing. She's having fun. Gabi says she's starving - do you want to go and get something to eat? Chad says that would be great. Lucas tells him mom and sister the pictures are very impressive. Billie watches Gabi with Chad and says she's not pretending to be in love. Those feelings she has are the real deal. She's got it bad. I hope he's not dating anyone because she could really get hurt.


Green Mountain Lodge - Part 3: Carrie comes back into the locker room. Mel comments that she sure got a speedy massage. Carrie tells her the spa was overbooked so she volunteered to give up her spot. It's no big deal. Carrie invites her and Abigail to join them dinner tonight. Mel doesn't want to interfere. Carrie insists that Abigail has done so much for Austin this semester the least they can do is buy them dinner. We'd like to get to know you both better.

Abby - I thought you cared about me. Austin - I do care for you but as a friend. That's not love. I'm sorry if I somehow misled you. You know I think you're an amazing woman but I never had feelings for you other than friendship. Abby cries - But we made love. Austin - And you know that I don't remember anything about that night. I was drunk and upset over Carrie. I have no idea what I did. Abby - No. Deep down you know, you remember, you must - you have to! Austin states firmly - I have no romantic feelings for you whatsoever. In this life I've truly only been in love with one person and that's my wife. We may have our problems but you have to know that she and I are forever. She was my first love. Abby - But you're my first love so what am I supposed to do now?


Madison's hotel room - Part 3: Brady asks if Ian is threatening her because if he is I can protect you. There's nothing to be afraid of. Madison recalls Ian's threat to send Brady to prison for his white collar crime. Madison insists no one is threatening anyone. It was nice being with you and it was fun. But for me it was nothing more than a distraction and as an added bonus I got to punish my husband for ignoring me. Brady - So you're saying that you were just using me; that the time we had together wasn't real at all. Ian thinks it's time Brady realised that there is a difference between deep and everlasting love and his wife's occasional attraction to a set of young muscles. Madison says Ian is wrong. I do truly care for you. I guess that's why it's been so hard to break things off with you. Yesterday when you were going on and on about us being together I couldn't bring myself to break your heart; to tell you the truth. Brady asks her to tell him the truth right now. Madison - You're a great guy but Ian is the only man I'll ever love.


HTS - Part 4: Lucas, Billie and Kate sit at a table and talk about how strange it that they meet up here again. Kate asks Billie if she's let Bo know she's back in town. Billie warns her mother that before she even goes there she wants her to know that she and Bo are in a really good place. He is happily married to Hope and that is that. Kate asks if there's anyone special in Billie's life. They joke that Kate never changes. Kate wonders if Lucas told Billie his good news. Lucas was going to tell her. He tells Billie he got engaged. Billie congratulates him and asks when they'll get to meet her. Lucas says they'll have to come and visit them in Hong Kong whenever they're not busy anihilating Mad World Cosmetics. Billie chuckles. Kate asks what's so funny. Billie doesn't think she realises that everytime Mad World is mentioned, she gets worked up. It's almost like you have a personal vendetta against that company. Lucas - What's up with that? Kate states that Madison James is the one who made it personal. You have no idea what that woman is capable of.


Madison's hotel room - Part 4: This still doesn't make any sense to Brady because when he found out about Ian and broke it off with her, she worked very, very hard to get back together with him. Madison tells him she thought she was going to lose her husband. He wasn't happy about their affair. Ian says he took it very hard. Madison doesn't know how to say this without sounding cruel but I guess you were my backup plan. In case I lost my husband I didn't want to end up alone. I'm sorry I made up all those horrible things I said about Ian because I needed you to feel sorry for me so you'd take me back. Brady - What about all his affairs - are you okay with that now? Madison claims that Ian has had a taste of his own medicine and he didn't like it at all. He promises to be completely faithful to me from this point forward. Ian says they are going to get it right this time. Brady still doesn't buy this. You're lying to me. Madison says she lied to him in the past but she needs him to believe her right now. I'm going to spend the rest of my life with Ian. Ian - You heard the lady. She doesn't want to be with you. I think it's time for you to leave. Brady asks Madison if she wants him to leave. She does. She is so sorry that she hurt him. I wish you all the best. Brady - You two deserve each other. I hope you're happy. He leaves slamming the door behind him. Ian tells her that was good; quite the performance. I almost believed you loved me. Madison - I hate you. I don't ever want you to forget it.


Green Mountain Lodge - Part 4: Carrie tells Mel to call her later once she and Abigail decide what to do about dinner tonight. Mel is sorry her massage didn't work out. Carrie says it was free anyway. Mel asked if that came with her room. Carrie says she won it somehow which is kind of strange because she didn't enter a contest. Mel asks how she found out that she got a massage. Carrie found this gift certificate outside their room this morning. Mel - And it ruined your plans with Austin. Carrie - Right, so I'm glad the massage was cancelled. I bet Austin is feeling pretty lonely in our room right now. I'll see you later. She leaves the room and Mel goes chasing after her.

Austin reminds Abby that she did love guys before. She insists it wasn't the same. I can't feel for anyone else what I feel about you and me. Do you have any idea how much I love you? Austin shakes his head - You're still so young. What you don't realise is that this is a crush. We've all been there but in time this is going to go away. Before you know it it's going to be like Austin who? Abby - I won't just get over you. When we first started hanging out my life was a mess. My dad came back in my life and I was so angry at him for abandoning us; my relationship with Chad was falling apart in front of my face because he was interested in my best friend. And one day I just realised that I had no one in my life that I could count on except you. Austin - I'm glad that I could be there for you. Abby - You were there for me. You were the only thing I had to look forward to; your smile, hearing you laugh, just being in the same room with you - my heart would literally skip a beat when you were next to me and when you leave I would ache for you. Austin - I'm glad I could be your friend. Abby - No. You didn't just treat me like a friend. I was special to you. You made me feel like I was important. So don't tell me that this doesn't mean anything and I'm just making this up. I won't believe that!

Just as Carrie walks up to their room Mel rushes up and tells her not to go in there yet.


Brady Pub: Gabi tells Chad that Billie has worked with tons of models so for her to say we have great chemistry is amazing. Chad - We did date for a little while so there was a spark there. Gabi thought so. Chad has always felt bad that he didn't give them a chance. Hooking back up with Mia was a huge disaster. I'm sorry I was such a butthead. I'm glad we were able to get past that and be friends again. It means a lot to me. It means a lot to Gabi too.


HTS - Part 4: Billie asks Lucas what brought him back to Salem. Lucas says it was Sami. She called and said her life was a mess. Also I missed Will, missed my kids terribly. I thought I could lend my support to Sami as well. Lucas gets a call from Will. How are you doing? What? Will, I'll have to call you right back. After the call he tells Billie that Bo was in fight last night. He was beaten pretty badly. Right now he's in a coma. Billie rushes off.

Green Mountain Lodge - Part 5: Austin sits next to Abby on the bed. You are so special and I know you don't want to hear this right now but someday you're going to meet a fantastic guy and he's going to return your love and you're going to be so happy. Abby - No! That is not true because I could never love anyone the way I have loved you. It's not possible. Why do you not understand that? Austin hugs her. I just wish there was some way to make this all go away.

Carrie asks Mel what's going on. Mel tells Carrie she can have her massage time slot right now. Carrie says that is sweet but she's going to see Austin. Mel says please don't go in there. Carrie opens the door and finds Abigail in Austin's arms. What the hell is going on here?

******************************************

Monday Mar 12

Alamainia - Part 1: Hope is frustrated because she can't get through to the hospital using her cell phone. John tells her to keep on trying. Hope says she has to do more. She can't sit around a hotel room making calls. Bo is fighting for his life. She has to get home before it's too late. John takes her phone. I'll try to get through. Why don't you take a hot bath and relax. Hope states that her husband could be dying and she has no idea what's going on because she's stuck in this godforsaken miserable place with no communication with the outside world. It's just the way Stefano wants it. What if he's the reason Bo got hurt. John points out that Stefano isn't even in Salem. Hope retorts - Did that ever stop him before? Bo and Marlena were so worried about us but has it occurred to you that he's using us to get to them? That worries me and there's not a damn thing I can do about it. John states that's not true. I told you I was going to get you home and I meant it. Hope hangs up after talking to the hotel clerk. He's sorry but there's nothing he can do. It's not uncommon in Alamainia to have trouble with long distance calls. Hope swears that if she loses Bo she will kill him (Stefano). John tells her to stop all this talk about losing Bo. Hope knows that he's worried. She caught part of his call last night; she knows he got a guard for Marlena. John is more worried about getting home; we'll deal with Stefano later. Hope reminds him they don't have their passports - how are you going to get us out of the country? John is going to made some calls. He couldn't get a long distance line either. He tried Spencer but still no answer. He talked to the US Consulate about getting their passports released. He's optimistic that will happen. The phone rings. What's the problem? Hope can tell it's not good news. John informs her that somehow the US Consulate just lost their jurisdiction here; there's no one that can help us. Hope suggests contacting the judge. She's sure once they tell him their problem he'll give them their passports back. John informs her that the judge has come up missing.


Hospital - Part 1: Billie encounters Daniel and states that she is looking for Bo Brady's room. Daniel introduces himself; I'm Bo's doctor. Billie says it's nice to put a face to a name. I'm Chelsea's mom, Billie Reed. Dan surmises she doesn't like him very much. Billie has her opinions but if he takes good care of Bo she'll give him a clean slate. Dan will do everything he can. Billie asks if she can see him. Yes. Billie sits next to his bed. I can't believe you're here in the hospital like this. Billie recalls Bo talking to her about the risks a cop takes every day. She adds - You alway had my back. It's my turn to be here for you now. She knows he's thinking she should have called first to let him know she was coming back to Salem but she thought it would be better to surprise him. It didn't matter how I did it; what mattered is that I would see you again. I was hoping you would be glad to see me. Do you even know that I'm here? Just let me see that smile and I'll know that everything is going to be okay. I don't know if you can hear me but you have to get better for your kids. They need you. You're such a great dad. Your kids love you, Hope loves you, I love you. I'm begging you, please come back to us. Maggie says Billie? Billie greets Maggie and Victor. She gives Maggie a hug.


Green Mountain Lodge - Part 1: There's a replay of the scene leading up to Carrie confronting Austin and Abigail. Austin tells her it's not at all what it looks like. Abigail jumps in - We didn't mean for you to find out this way. Austin knows how this look. Carrie - It looks really bad. Mel says they'll go and let them talk. Abigail - No, I'm not going anywhere until she hears the truth. Austin - And the truth is Abigail was upset. I was just trying to make her feel better. Carrie - Without any clothes on? Austin states he was just about to get in the shower. Carrie tells him to stop. I don't know to hear your excuses. I want to know why she was in your arms in our hotel room. Somebody better tell me what the hell is going on right now! Austin asks Carrie if they can talk about this alone please. Mel thinks that's a great idea. Abigail - No, I'm not leaving you Austin. Carrie watches as Austin tries to push Abby away from him. Carrie - Oh my goodness. I don't know why I didn't see this before. Abigail pops up everywhere we go whether it's the Brady Pub, the Horton Square; now it's the ski lodge miles away from home. Mel - No, it was my idea to come here, not Abigail's. Carrie rounds on her - You knew what I was going to find when I came into this room. That's why you tried to keep me from this. Austin goes to her - Let me explain. Carrie pushes him aside and confronts Abigail. You came here to be with Austin, didn't you? Mel continues to lie - We came here to ski. We didn't know you guys were going to be here. Carrie asks Abby if that's true. Austin answers - Of course that's true. Carrie - No it's not. I should have seen it. You two are always together. Austin states that Abby is his assistant. Carrie - And Abigail, you came to me for advice. What was that about? Were you trying to make it so I wouldn't suspect anything or were you trying to make me feel like an idiot. Abby - No! Austin - No. You guys have a history and that's why Abigail wanted to talk to you. That's it. Carrie - Yeah we do. I've known you since you were a little girl Abigail. I was so excited to see you when we came back to Salem; to see how grown up you were. And after everything you went through with your dad my heart went out to you. And then there was this jerk that wasn't treating you right and I was outraged. I understand now. It was Austin, wasn't it? He's the one that broke your heart.


Hospital - Part 2: Maggie thinks it's wonderful that Billie is going to be working with her mother at Countess W; it will be just like old times. Billie will never forget how supportive Maggie was when she started that company. Billie was so excited to be back until she got the call about Bo. Victor asks if there's been any change in Bo's condition. Billie spoke to his doctor but once she saw Bo everything went out the window. Victor agrees that it's hard to see him look like this. Dan comes in and when Victor asks about Bo Dan tells him there's still plenty of reason to be hopeful. Victor - You've got to save him. Maggie tells him that Daniel is an amazing surgeon; Bo is in good hands. Dan wishes there is something that he could do. Billie reveals that her mom told her that Daniel is Maggie's son. That must have been quite a shock for both of you. Maggie says it was a wonderful shock. Finding him was nothing short of a miracle. Victor states that Bo could use a miracle. Dan is going to check if Bo's test results are ready. Victor doesn't want him to sugarcoat anything. Tell me what you know. Dan will. Victor tells Bo that he took quite a beating. An average man wouldn't have made it off the street but then you're not the average man, are you? You're a fighter; always have been. I wish I could take credit for the man you are but I know I can't. I used to wonder what it would have been like to raise you but in the end I realised I wouldn't change anything because I couldn't be more proud of the man I see in front of me. God knows I couldn't love you anymore. Do you hear me Bo? Can you open your eyes? Maggie tells him that Bo needs his rest to regain his strength. She's going to get some air. After she leaves Billie tells Victor she can't believe this is happening. She's surprised that Hope is not here. Victor - You haven't heard; Hope is overseas with John.


Green Mountain Lodge - Part 2: Austin tells Carrie that she needs to calm down. Carrie raises her voice - I don't want to hear from you right now. I want to hear from her. Abigail is more than ready to talk about it. Mel tells Abby this is none of her business. Abby - It is my business Melanie. Carrie, ask me your question one more time. Austin pleads - Please don't do this. Carrie - Was Austin the one you were crying about the other day; the one that broke your heart. Abby - Yes he was. Carrie - You're involved with a student? Not with any student, Jack and Jennifer's daughter? A little girl you've known since ... Abigail protests - I'm not a little girl. Mel yells at her to stop. Carrie - How could you take advantage of a little girl? Austin - You have to let me explain. Carrie yells No! After the way you treated me? You blamed me for ruining our marriage. Why the hell should I listen to you? Austin - Because I am your husband. And I love you and I promise you that there is nothing going on between me and ... Abigail grabs him. Stop it. That's not true. You don't have to lie anymore. Carrie - OMG. Austin - I am not lying to you. Carrie - I've had enough of this. I don't even know who you are. Austin isn't going to let her leave until she hears the truth. Carrie - The truth is you are immoral and unethical and I will not stand here and listen to you defend your actions because there is no excuse for what you've done. Abby - He didn't do anything wrong. I wanted him as much as he wanted me and we are in love Carrie. Carrie sarcastically responds - Well you're in love. That explains everything. Austin - We are not in love. I do not love her! Abby - Yes you do. I know that this is hard for you to hear Carrie but it's the truth. He didn't mean to fall for me but when you cheated on him ... Carrie - Excuse me! Abby goes on defiantly - After you cheated on Austin he came to me. Everything happens for a reason Carrie. Austin and I, we're supposed to be together. Mel watches the train wreck in front of her in horror. Austin - No we are not. Can you get that through your head! Abby - Stop. This is the best thing that could have possibly happened for us. There's no more lying for us, no more sneaking around; you don't have to feel guilty anymore. Mel can't take it anymore - she grabs Abigail and drags her out of the room. Austin tells Carrie she has to listen to him. Abigail is confused. We are not in love. We are not together. This is crazy. I love you with all my heart; you gave to believe me.

Outside the room Abby tells Melanie to let go of her. Mel will if she'll stop. She lets her go. Abby tells her she has to go back in that room. Austin needs me. Mel can't believe what she just witnessed in there. Abby - It had to come out eventually. Mel - No. It's bad enough that you tricked me into coming up here so you could ruin their romantic getaway but now you're deliberately destroying their marriage when it's so clear to everyone else that they're trying to make it work. Abby hisses - She doesn't love him. Mel - That's not for you to decide. Abby - I know Austin and I know that he loves me. Mel - Did he say that to you? Abby - He doesn't belong with her, he belongs with me. Mel - You really believe that? Abby - Yes of course I believe that, it's the truth.


Alamainia - Part 2: John finishes up a call. Hope asks if he's had luck getting them out of this godforsaken place. John's called everyone he knows here. No one is willing to help them get their passports back or smuggle them out of the country. It seems something has spooked everyone in Alamainia - no one wants to take that risk. Hope - Great. My husband is lying in a hospital bed and I'm on vacation. We never should have left without them; we should have seen this coming. John points out that they didn't have a choice. Lets go with what we do have; I have the ISA behind me ... Hope reminds him he can't get a hold of Agent Spencer; he could be dead for all they know. John adds that they are two very resourceful people; we will figure this out. Hope - What if we really are stuck halfway around the world and something happens to Bo? John promised that he was going to get her home; he never breaks his promises. Hope states that if no one will help them they'll find a way out on their own. How about we scope out the local businesses and hop on a delivery truck and get over the border. Then we pay an airport authority to let us on a flight. John says that sounds risky. I think the key is to get our passports back. Hope asks how. The government won't release them. They're locked away in some desk drawer in the courthouse. John hopes she's thinking what he is. Hope believes she is. Why didn't we think of this first? We need to find a photo of the courthouse - blueprints. We need to know this building inside out. John tells her that before they get into this too deep we need to discuss it. We're talking about breaking into a government building and stealing official documents. Hope argues - Documents that never should have been taken from us in the first place. John warns that if they get caught they're not going to slap us on the wrist; they'll probably lock us up for life. Are you willing to risk that? Hope - To get home to my husband? Absolutely. John was hoping she'd say that.


Hospital - Part 3: Maggie knocks on Daniel's office door. Does he have a minute? He does. Maggie tells him she really missed him. Dan says the sadness isn't just about missing me, what's wrong? Maggie replies Bo is in a coma and Victor having to see his son like that, it's killing him and there's nothing I can do about it. Dan thinks that Victor knows she is there for him. He's sure that means more than she even realises. Maggie says she is being completely selfish but she can't stop thinking 'What if it were my son? What if it were you? I don't think I could survive it.' Dan says nothing is going to happen to him. I'm not going anywhere. Maggie chastises herself for feeling sorry for herself while Bo is lying in a hospital bed. Dan says she's the most selfless, giving woman he knows. It's okay to think about yourself every once in a while. She asks if those are Bo's test results. They are. He wishes he could give her some good news but unfortunately Bo's brain function is unchanged. Maggie - At least he's not getting any worse. Dan rebuts - He's not getting any better which means we have a long, long road ahead of us.

Back in Bo's room Billie tells Victor she heard everything he said but she's not absorbing it. John and Hope are married. They're in Alamainia getting a divorce and Stefano is behind it. Has anyone told Hope about Bo? Vic assumes so. He's sure she's on a plane on her way back to Salem right now. Billie would like to say she doesn't believe it but as long as Stefano is alive anything is possible. Vic says not much has changed since you left town. Billie disagrees; a lot has changed. There's the new town square, both my brothers and Carrie are home but as long as Stefano is still pulling the strings... we've got to do something. We've got to stop him. Victor tells Billie he's really sad to see her leaving Titan. Billie - And my being here is probably the last place you'd like to see me. She's sorry to leave him high and dry but she's sure he understands family comes first. Of course he does. He smiles as he said now that she's his competition she'll have to watch her back. Billie asks if he's plotting against her already. Not him but he advises her to steer clear of Madison James and Ian MacAllistair. Billie has heard all about them and she plans to face them head on. I'm a sucker for a good challenge.


Green Mountain Lodge - Part 3: Austin is now dressed. He thanks Carrie for not leaving. The only reason she stayed is because he promised her the truth. She warns him - one more lie and she's out the door. She'll take the car and go home without him. Austin promises - no lies. Carrie - So what the hell happened? Austin - I crossed the line. I messed up. Carrie - You admit it. You're in a relationship with Abigail. Austin - No. I admit I did some things I never should have done but I meant what I said. Abigail and I are not together. I don't love her. I never have. Somewhere along the line she fell for me and I was just too stupid to stop it. Carrie - When did this happen? Austin - I think it happened about the time of John's case when you were working so much. Carrie - Oh no, you do not put this on me. He isn't. I'm telling you I was alone and Abigail and I developed this friendship. After awhile it got out of hand. Look hindsight is 20/20. I thought of her as a friend, employer / employee. And I didn't see her as anything more than that. Obviously she did. Carrie - Here's the thing I don't get. Abigail's a really bright girl and if you didn't lead her on, why in the world would she think that you loved her back? Austin - Abigail wants to believe that I have romantic feelings for her. No matter what I say she wants it so badly that she's created this entire ... it's a twisted relationship in her head. Carrie - She's so young. Austin - Yes, exactly! Which is why I take full responsibility for everything. I'm a big boy, I should have seen the signs, I should have seen this coming and I just didn't. Carrie - So it's just a harmless crush gone wrong? Austin - Yes. She obviously has feelings for me. I think she mistook my friendliness for reciprocation and that's all it is. Carrie really wants to believe him. Austin pleads with her to believe him. You were right about what you said about her coming up here. She came up here for me but I promise you I had no idea! Carrie - You didn't plan it then? Austin - Are you kidding me? You should have heard me when she came in the room. I laid it out for her once and for all. I told her there was absolutely nothing between us, there is no future, there's no present and I told her that you are the only woman I love. Please, I don't want to lose you.

Abigail thought Mel was her best friend - how could you side with Carrie? Mel is her best friend that's why she's trying to get her to see what a big mistake this is. Abby argues that she's trying to keep her from being with the man she loves. Mel - Austin is married. You don't want to get involved in this. Can we please just check out and go back to Salem? Abigail - No, I will not leave Austin.


Alamainia - Part 3: John tells Hope they're on for tonight. Hope shows him the blueprints. She points out the judges office and then talks about options on how to get inside. John tells her she's good at this. Hope reminds him she was a pretty good art thief back when she was Princess Gina; she still thinks she's got what it takes.


Hospital - Part 4: Maggie suggests to Victor that they head home. After hearing the test results from Daniel Vic hates to leave Bo alone. Billie tells them she'll hang out here and if there's any change she'll call them. They leave.


Green Mountain Lodge - Part 4: Carrie - I don't want to lose you either. I know that I've made mistakes. Austin - We just have to keep doing what we're doing; just work on our relationship every day. Abby comes in as Austin says - Don't give up on me Carrie; you are my whole world. They both see Abigail. Austin - What the hell Abigail! Abigail - You do not love her! Austin - You need to stop this. Carrie is my wife and yes I do love her; I love her more than anything. Would you get out of here please! Abigail - No, if you love her so damned much than why did you sex with me! Carrie - You had sex? Abigail - It was more than sex. We made love and it was beautiful. Carrie - Austin? Austin - It was a mistake. I didn't mean for it to happen. Carrie slaps him - You're disgusting. She walks out. Austin goes after her. Abigail tries to stop him but doesn't succeed. Mel comes in the room as Abigail cries. Mel - Abigail what have done?


Alamainia / Hospital: Hope tries the phone in their hotel room and is surprised when the call to the hospital goes through. She asks to be put through to Bo Brady's room. In Bo's room Billie is asking Bo if he can hear her. She tells him so many people need him. The phone rings so she answers. Hope asks 'Who is this?' Billie Reed, Hope is that you? She's so glad Hope called. Hope asks her what she's

doing there. Just at that moment Bo has a seizure. Billie starts screaming for help; Hope tries to find out what is going on. Billie yells 'OMG, he's dying. Somebody help me.'

***************************************

Tuesday Mar 13

Alamainia / Hospital: Hope calls out for Billie when she hears Bilie screaming that Bo is dying. Lexie rushes into the room and tells Billie to step aside. Lexie declares that Bo has no pulse. Billie tells Hope that she's thinks they're losing him. Lexie tells Billie to leave the room - she loses the connection to Hope.


DiMera Mansion - Part 1: Abe meets up with Roman outside the front door. Roman says he was summoned here just like Abe was. When Abe says he thinks Roman should be at the hospital Roman tells him Lexie will call if there's any change. Abe is curious what their new mayor has planned for them. As far as Roman is concerned, because EJ is not sworn in, Abe is still the mayor. Abe states that he's a lame duck. He has no real power and he's under investigation for election fraud. Roman says he's innocent. They both know he was framed and by who and his investigation will prove that. Abe needs answers starting with what the hell are we doing here. Roman suggests they find out. EJ opens the door and asks them in. First he asks how Bo is doing. Roman says he was seriously hurt in the line of duty, how do you think he's doing? EJ expresses his sympathy ... Abe tells him to save the act. What are we doing here? EJ offers them a drink. Abe - Do you expect us to believe this is a social call? EJ is being polite. He feels Abe could use a drink considering the position he's in. Your wife left you taking your son with her and your facing some hefty criminal charges. Roman asks if they're here so EJ can harass them. EJ has a legitmate reason for asking them here. He tells Abe that he'd like to help them. Abe tells Roman this is a waste of their time. Let's go. EJ - What if I were to offer you a pardon? Abe and Roman laugh. Abe points out that EJ is not the governor - you're not even the mayor yet. EJ says he knows the chaps at the DA's offer - maybe he could be persuaded to have a word with them. Tampering with an election is a very serious ... Abe snaps - I didn't rig the damn election. EJ - Successfully. Abe - At all you S.O.B. EJ chuckles - I'm offering you a lifeline; believe me, no one else is going to. If I were you I would take it. Abe - You are not me. I will not bargain for redemption like I've done something wrong. EJ could relieve some of that unrelenting pressure that is going to come his way - that has to be worth something. Think about yourself. Abe - What's the catch. EJ - There is none. I just need you to allow things to reach their inevitable conclusion. Abe - What inevitable conclusion. EJ - Letting go of Lexie.


Rafe's loft - Part 1: Lucas opens the door to Will. Will gives him a hug and welcomes him home. They talk about Bo but neither of them have any news. Will finds out that Aunt Billie is back in town and that she's going to be working at Countess W. It's a surprise to Lucas that she's back. Will points out that he never said anything about coming home either. Lucas tells him it was spur of the moment. Will asks what he's doing here. Lucas tells Will that Sami called him. She thought he should be here for the kids while she's out of town. Will thought he was smarter than that. She called you and told you what a victim she is and that her life is a total mess and you dropped everything and came to save her ass, right? Unbelievable. Lucas says that Sami told him everything that's happened here. Will doubts that. Lucas - What do you think I don't know? Will tells him to forget it. You always have blinders on where she's concerned - you always have. Lucas - Really? But you don't? Will shrugs - Not any more. Lucas - You mean ever since you caught her with EJ. Will looks taken aback - You're not surprised, are you? Lucas is sorry that Will is the one that was hurt the most by what's happened. Will - Have you talked to Rafe? Or the kids yet? She destroyed our whole family. Lucas - Your mother knows that. She's very sorry about what's happened. Will - Oh she got to you already. Lucas denies that. I know your mother's tricks better than anyone. Will concedes that is probably true. Just promise me you're not going to get involved in them again or her. Lucas can pretty much guaranty that's not going to happen because I'm engaged and very much in love with my fiancée. Will asks when this happened and why is he just sharing this info now. Lucas says it wasn't that long ago and it's not the type of information you share over the phone. Will asks if she's here. Lucas says no, she's busy at work. Will asks Lucas to tell him about her. He does. Will asks if Mom knows. Yes and she's really happy for me. Will - We'll see how long that lasts. Lucas knows that Will is angry at her right now but don't give her a hard time. Will isn't angry with her anymore; I just see her for who she really is. Lucas admits he's not just here because of what Sami is going through right now, I'm here because I'm worried about you. Will - What did mom tell you?


Hospital - Part 1: Lexie uses the defibralator to try and get a pulse. Outside the room Billie searches for Hope's number. Kate arrives. Billie tells her that Bo went into cardiac arrest and Lexie kicked her out of the room. She was on the phone with Hope; now she's trying to get back to her but she can't get through. Kate asks why she's calling her now. Bille explains that she was on the phone with Hope when it happened. Kate thinks she should wait until she has more information. Billie says no, she thinks he's dying. I've got to get through to her. Kate - And what are you going to say to her? If Bo's dead do you think it's a good idea that you're the one that gives her the news? Billie concedes her mother is right. Kate knows that Billie still cares for Bo. Billie - Can we please not do this right now? Kate replies that this is a complicated situation; you need to be mindful of the history. Billie says that none of that matters right now. Kate asks - Don't you think it mattered to Hope that you were the one that answered the phone? Billie thinks that she is the last of Hope's concerns right now. Kate agrees. She's worried about Bo, you're worried about Bo. Billie admits that she still cares about Bo. He's the father of my child. He was a big part of my life for a very long time. Kate replies - He's a big part of why you left. Billie doesn't want to be reminded of that right now - it was a long time ago. Kate - Are you sure about that? Billie says if she wants to ask me something, ask me. Kate asks if she came back to work at Countess W because of Bo. Billie - Bo did not factor in my decision so let's just stop this right now. Lexie comes out of Bo's room and tells them that Bo is stable. Billie - That sounds like good news but you don't look relieved. Lexie - Because that's the only good news I have. For now he's hanging in there. Billie - But what, you don't think he's going to pull through? Lexie didn't say that. Kate points out that she's not saying much of anything. Billie knows that they are not immediate family but Bo is Chelsea's father so if there is something she needs to know, something I need to prepare her for ... Lexie - No, we're not at that point but the injuries he sustained were severe to begin with. That along with the coma ... Billie - Wait, I was told that the coma would help in the healing. Are you saying that's not the case. Is Bo going to be okay or not?


Alamainia - Part 1: Hope is beside herself because she can't get a line through. John tells her it's okay. Hope cries. No it won't, Billie said he was dying - she heard the alarms. John tells her they'll try in a few minutes. Hope - What if it's too late? John asks if Billie said what she was doing there. Hope doesn't know anything except that her husband needs her and Billie is there and she's not. John comforts her. Hope sobs. John tells her that Bo needs her to be strong now. Hope says they have to get home. John promises that he'll get her home. Hope says they have one shot at getting out of this godforsaken country. John asks if she's still up to going after their passports. Try and stop her. John warns her about getting caught ... Hope says they won't get caught. I'm not ruining my one shot at getting home to Bo. John says alright, the plan will remain the same. They go over the plan while looking at the blueprints. John packs their supplies for the breakin. They're both dressed in black. John says they can count on the fact that they're being watched which is why they're not going out through the lobby.


DiMera Mansion - Part 2: Abe - You want me to leave my wife? EJ - Your wife already left you. What I'm asking is for you to accept it. Abe - You're the reason Lexie and I are having problems. EJ drinks and claims that Abe did that all on his own. Maybe you didn't rig the election but you rigged the debate. Abe - I will regret sinking your level for the rest of your life. EJ laughs at him. If you had sunk to my level you wouldn't have been caught. The fact is your wife is never going to look at you the same way because you put the election ahead of her. Abe - And you think she's going to come running to you? EJ - I'm blood. I'm family. Abe - You are everything she has worked her entire life to avoid. You and your sadistic father. EJ - And you've spent your entire relationship with her trying to turn her against us. You made yourself out to be this paragon to the entire community. Now you've fallen off your little pedestal. Everyone can see you for who you really are; you're a fake, you're a phony, you're ... Abe snaps - There is absolutely no honour in you. There never was. You can dress yourself up in fancy suits but you're garbage. You're sister is hurt and delusional but she's not going to be fooled by you. EJ - You mean like she was fooled by you? Roman tells EJ that Abe has more integrity than EJ will ever know. He loves his wife. They're going to work on this and come through this stronger than ever. Roman tells Abe they should leave. EJ - I wouldn't be so quick to leave Commissioner. Your job is hardly secure. Roman - Is that a threat? No, it's more a statement of fact. EJ pulls out a report stating that his time hasn't been much of success. Crime is up; arrests and convictions are down. Roman retorts - I'm looking at the reason for that. EJ tells him that he's already started looking for his successor. Given your level of competence I don't think it should be too hard to find somebody. You can't tell me that you seriously believe you're tenure as commissioner is above reproach. This is the first time Roman is hearing of any complaints. EJ points out that he and his detective brother were mugged in broad daylight. Roman - And that's my fault? EJ thinks that hardly reassures the citizens of Salem that the streets are safe. Roman - We were ambushed; it happens. EJ fires back - By criminals that should have already been locked up. Abe - You are one to talk. You and your father should be rotting away in adjoining cells. EJ - That's exactly my point. You two have been saying that for years and yet you failed to make one charge stick. The criminals aren't afraid of you. It's the good people of Salem that should be afraid of you. The truth is a bitter pill to swallow, isn't it? Roman tells Abe he's done. He's got to get back to the hospital to check on Bo. Abe - You think you have the upper hand. EJ - I KNOW I have the upper hand. Abe - Enjoy it while it lasts. EJ - Why, you know something I don't? Abe - My love for Lexie, our committment to our marriage is stronger than you think. We're not going to allow you to ride roughshod us and we're not going to allow you to destroy the town we're sworn to protect. So mark my words, you will fail. EJ tells him that was lovely but his lame rhetoric is not going to save his marriage nor will it get him re-elected. Take the deal Abraham. Abe - Or suffer the consequences? EJ - Your words. Abe - I hope I'm as clear. Go to hell. EJ says you don't leave me any choice. I have to call the district attorney and make sure you're prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Abe - Well, do what you have to do. As they're leaving EJ tells Roman to do your friend a really big favour - get him to take the deal. If I were to find out there were any suppressions in your investigation into Abe then you would be sitting beside your friend in a penitentiary. Roman - Nice talking to you EJ.


Alamainia - Part 2: Hope and John are now in the process of breaking into the courthouse. John and Hope talk about breaking the circuit so the alarm doesn't sound. Hope is the one that disables the alarm or at least tells John how to do it. They get inside without the alarm going off. They're cover the camera lens with foam. John says lets gets our passports. The file cabinet has a padlock on it. Hope gets it opened. They work on the lock on the file cabinet next. John finally gets it open. They search for their file. The lights in the office come on ...


Hospital - Part 2: Lexie tells Billie they are doing everything they can. Billie - That's it. As she protests further Kate tells her this is not a good idea. Billie just can't stand around while his condition gets worse. Kate doesn't want her taking on this whole burden by herself. Billie states that Hope isn't here so someone has to fight for Bo and that someone is her. Lexie says they are all fighting for Bo. You're going to have to have faith that he's going to pull through this. Lexie is going in to see Bo and then Billie can go back in. She asks if Billie was able to reach Hope. No, she can't get through; she'll keep trying. Lexie states that Bo is strong; if anyone can pull through this, he can. Lexie goes back in Bo's room. Billie tells Kate the problem has to be on Hope's end because she got through to Chelsea. She left her message telling her to stay put until they more. They talk about Chelsea. Kate thinks they should go back to the DiMera mansion. Billie - Are you kidding me? The DiMera mansion is the last place I'm going. She wouldn't be comfortable staying at Stefano's. Kate - And you don't understand why am? Bille replies that it's not her place to pass judgement. Kate knows she doesn't approve of her marriage. Billie - You seem happy. Are you? Kate is in all the ways that matter. Being married to Stefano has it's advantages and disadvantages and I think the good outweighs the bad. When he tells me that he cares about me, I believe him and I care about too, very much. Billie - So you both care about each other but is that enough for you. Kate - We understand each other. We share a mutual respect and we genuinely enjoy our time together. I think those are a lot of good things. There's no misconception of what we share so yes I am okay with it. Billie - As long as you don't give me that whole true love scenario then I'm happy for you. Kate is so glad she's back. So is Billie. Kate suggests getting Billie up to date on work. Billie already knows that Mad World Cosmetics has set up shop here. Kate says that dirty blonde is just the flavour of the month. Billie points out that Ian MacAllistair was just named CEO of Titan and they own Mad World - I wouldn't dismiss them so lightly. Kate says they're no threat to us. Bille - Madison is sharp, she is focused and she has made quite a name for herself. And Ian MacAllistair is sharp and he's ruthless. I've heard he's quite a womanizer and he's left a lot of broken hearts in his wake. Kate has heard that. Lexie comes out and tells Billie she can go and see Bo now. Billie goes in and tells Bo he's going to be just fine. I promise.


Rafe's loft - Part 2: Will doesn't like people talking about him behind his back. Will reminds him that they're his parents - he asked her what was going on with you and she told me. Will - Told you what? Lucas - That you've been having a tough time lately. Will scoffs. Everything was fine until she slept with EJ. Lucas - Really? When they took down your website, you were okay with that? And you broke up with your girlfriend. Will states that technically she broke up with him. Either way it doesn't sound like things were going too hot for him in Lucas's opinion. I'm your Dad and I want you to know that you can tell me anything. Talk to me; tell me what's going on with you. He adds that he'll be staying in Salem for a while. Will says that's great. Lucas tells him he wants to spend more time with him. Living halfway around the world has made me realise how much I miss you. Will feels the same way. Lucas hugs him and tells him he loves him. Good talk - new topic now that we got that out of the way. What are you doing working for EJ? Will doesn't know but he likes his job. Lucas - What exactly do you like about it other than it was a good way to stick it to your mom. Will claims it was never about that. Lucas says it doesn't matter. Now that we got everything out in the open I expect you to quit immediately. Will can't. Lucas asks why not. Will - Because he knows that it wasn't you that shot him. He knows I was the one that shot him. Lucas - How the hell did EJ find out you were the one who shot him. Will doesn't know; EJ didn't tell me. Lucas - That's why you're working for him. He's blackmailing you! That S.O.B.. Will tells him it's not that bad. Lucas - What exactly does he have you doing for him? Will - Nothing. He doesn't make me do anything I don't want to do. Lucas - Are you protecting him now? Will - I'm not protecting him. I just don't want to quit my job because I like it. I like the power. I like the power of being on the inside. When he tells me do something I do it and I feel valued. I feel important. Lucas tells him that he used to work for EJ's brother, Tony. That was the biggest mistake of my life. I know that it's exciting. I get it. I know there's money and power involved but it's not worth losing who you are. I'm not going to let them corrupt you like this. Will - I'm not being corrupted Dad. Seriously all my life people have warned me about the dangers of working with the DiMera's so I know what I'm getting myself into. Lucas doesn't think he does. Will knows he's worried about him but seriously, I know what I'm doing. I'm sorry I have to go. I can't talk about this anymore. I'm glad you're back, I'll see you very soon. He leaves.

*******************************************

Wednesday Mar 14

HTS - Part 1: Melanie traipses behind Abigail as she rushes through the square. Mel asks if they are getting something to eat. Abby thought he would be here. I have to go check the hotel. Mel asks if she's looking for Austin. Of course she is. Mel snaps - Are you nuts? Abby tells her to stop talking to her like that. You're supposed to be my friend. Mel is her friend. I'm the friend that's going to stop you from stalking a married man; the same friend who didn't get a bathroom break after you gunned it down from that lodge after you told his wife that you slept with him. Abby tells her to stop it; give me a break. Mel - You need to leave them alone. You need to let them work this out. Abby - Have you not heard anything I've said to you on the way here. Their marriage is probably already over. Carrie was furious when she found out about Austin and me. Mel - And you're okay with that? Abby isn't. I didn't mean for her to find out this way but it's better this way. Mel - Better for who? Abby - Everyone. Now I've listened to you and I need to go and find Austin now. Mel yells - Abigail, NO. This is your fault. You're the last person Austin is going to want to see. Abby declares that Mel is wrong about Austin. Mel - When Carrie left, Austin jumped in a car and drove after her. He didn't hang out to talk to you. He's probably begging for forgiveness right now. Abby - When Philip cheated on you did you forgive him? Mel - That is not the same thing. Abigail doesn't see how it's any different. Mel doesn't believe they're actually having this conversation. Abby - Why? Because I'm actually fighting for the man that I love? Mel snaps - Then you're going to have to fight really, really hard. Do you remember him pushing you out of the way to get after Carrie? Abby claims that is because he felt guilty. Soon when his marriage is over he won't have anything to feel guilty about anymore. She adds that Carrie stopped giving a damn about Austin the second they moved back to Salem. Mel - How do you know that? Abby - She took a job defending John when she knew that Austin was working with the FBI to make a case against him. Mel - So? Abby - So she was never around. She was always working with Rafe Hernandez. He saw them kissing. Mel knows that. Abby - Then stop acting like I'm a slut. Mel tells her she's not a slut. Abigail maintains she never would have had a chance with Austin if it wasn't for Carrie having this thing for Rafe. Austin needed someone and I was there for him. Mel - What happens when he goes back to his wife? Abigail - He and I built something together; something good, something strong and that isn't just going to go away. We didn't mean for it to happen but it did. Mel - Okay, I know you believe this but I think you're just seeing what you want to see. Abigail - No, no! Mel snaps - YES! YES! Look you and Austin never would never have happened had he not had problems with his wife. I'm sorry. I've been here - done this. Abby - Done what? Mel - Make something out of nothing. Abby declares - That is not what I am doing. Mel - I believe you love him, I do. That doesn't mean that he loves you back.


Austin & Carrie's hotel room - Part 1: A dejected Austin enters the hotel room. It looks like someone is in bed with the covers pulled over their head so he starts talking. Carrie, please listen to me. I am sorry. I love you so much. I hate myself for what I did. It's the worst mistake I've ever made in my life. I was drunk off my ass or I never would have cheated on you. Billie pops out from under the covers - You dog. Wait, I take that back. I like dogs. Austin exclaims - What are you doing here? He hugs her and tells her it's so good to see her. What are you doing in Salem and more importantly what are you doing in our bed? Billie gets it. You knew it was me and you were just pretending I was Carrie, saying all that garbage ... that was just a joke, right. Silence. OMG! Austin says she still hasn't told him what she's doing here. Billie scoffs - Nice try. You're not going to get out of it that easily. Austin tells her that he screwed up and he has no idea what to do. Billie asks him to tell her what happened. He tells her that he and Carrie went away to a ski lodge - Green Mountain Lodge; the first place we were together. We went there because things have been rocky since we've been back in Salem. After all these years of knowing what Carrie was thinking I just didn't anymore. We were trying to work it out. The whole trip turned out to be a catastrophe. Carrie took off this morning and I've been trying to find her ever since. Billie - Since you supposedly cheated on her, how did she find out? Austin - Not supposedly, I did. Billie tells him to start from the beginning and tell her everything.


Carrie's office - Part 1: Carrie is in the dark crying and asking herself why when Rafe comes in and puts the lights on. He sees Carrie and comments that she looks like hell. Do you want to tell me what's wrong? Weren't you supposed to be skiing. Carrie tells him they went. I found out ... she cries and goes into Rafe's arms. Rafe has never seen her like this. What's going on? She apologises for hanging on to him and sobbing. Carrie is going to go - she came here to be alone. Rafe won't let her leave. Carrie decides she can't go - you're a part of it. I'll tell you everything. Apparently Carrie has filled Rafe in as she ends with and Abigail proudly told me the guy she was in love with, the one I was giving her advice about, was in fact my husband. Austin slept with her. Rafe - What! Abigail's like 12. Carrie says apparently she's had her eye on Austin for quite some time. She got herself a job as his assistant and one thing led to another. Rafe can't believe this. Carrie starts crying again - I've never been so humilated in my whole life. Rafe tells her she shouldn't feel humilated, Austin should. A professor sleeping with a student! Carrie feels like she was blindsided. Rafe asks if she's sure about this. Carrie tells him Austin admitted it. What gets me the most is how he and Sami acted when they caught us kissing. Rafe - That shouldn't have happened; I was way out of line. Carrie - So was I but the nerve - all that righteous indignation over a kiss when they did things that were so much worse.


Alamainia - Part 1: Stefano greets John and Hope - What a surprise. He holds up their passports - Looking for something? John calls him a bastard. Hope tells Stefano he'll have to take them both out. Do you think you can still do that? Stefano replies - If I can't the gentlemen I have waiting outside and in the hallway will take care of it and finish the job. Why don't we try and be civilized. Hope states that he knows about Bo's condition and accuses Stefano of doing that to him. Stefano understands that Bo was attacked by two thugs. If he wanted to hurt him wouldn't he use a little more finesse? Hope holds out her hand - If I got on a plane 15 mins from now it might make ... Stefano - Things are dire, huh? John says yes they are. Stefano says that's a shame but two officers of the law like you should know better than to break and enter into a government building. I'm sorry about Bo but the way things are going you're not going to be able to get a flight to be by his side. Hope asks him why he's doing this. Stefano reminds them they are the ones that broke in here. He heard something was going on so he came to investigate. Hope - With several of your goons. John sarcastically chuckles - You're such a stickler for law and order. Stefano - I think I liked you better without a brain. John says you set this whole thing up and I'm scratching my head why? Was it just to go after Bo? Stefano claims that what happened to Bo is as much a surprise to him as it to them. Hope tells him her husband needs her right now. If you have ever loved anyone in your life please don't stop me from going to him. They hear the sirens. Stefano - I'm sorry but I'm afraid it's too late. The authorities should be here at any moment and it's my understanding that the Alamainian police don't believe in innocent until proven guilty. John tells Hope he's sorry. His instincts told him this could backfire but all he could think about was getting her back home to Bo. Hope tells him not to apologise. Stefano sarcastically remarks - OMG, this is breaking my heart. John snaps - Spare me. Stefano - That is exactly what I'm thinking of doing. Hope - What does that mean. Stefano - That means I can direct my men to distract the police until I get you out of here. We better make it pretty fast. John - Yeah, right into another trap. Stefano - What's it going to be? The devil you know or the one that you don't?


Austin & Carrie's hotel room - Part 2: Billie - Abigail? Jack and Jennifer's Abigail? She's a baby. Austin argues that she's in her early 20's. Billie rebuts - You're old enough to be her father. Austin asks her not to make this any worse for him than it already is. Billie - How could it be any worse. Austin doesn't know. What he can't believe is that he let it get so out of control. Carrie and I got to the point where we couldn't even talk anymore without fighting and then along comes young Abigail who develops this huge crush on me ... Billie - And you knew that. Austin - I guess I did. Things got really bad with Carrie and me. One night I had way to much too drink ... I'm not saying that excuses anything ... now Abigail thinks she's in love with me. She's so young. Billie - Exactly. Somebody so young doesn't just think they are in love, they are in love. Delirously, over the top, incredibly in love. Oh big brother, you blew it this time. Billie places a call to the hospital to find out about Bo. Austin asks her what's wrong with Bo. Billie tells him he was beaten up pretty badly. He's in a coma and they're not sure he's going to pull through. Austin thinks that is why she came back to Salem. Why didn't you tell me? Billie informs her that Bo was already in the hospital when she got back to Salem. Austin can't believe this happened to Bo. Billie - What's worse is that Hope is not here. She's out of town, she's out of the country and she's having trouble getting back here. She called the room and I answered the phone and then he went into cardiac arrest. The last thing she heard me say was that he's dying and then our connection was lost and I've not been able to get through to her to tell her he's doing better. Austin - If Carrie was hurt and I couldn't get to her, I think I'd go crazy. I'm not so sure she'd feel the same if it were me. Billie - She would. She's incredibly hurt right now and furious. But come on, the love you two have doesn't just go away even if someone does something incredibly stupid. It's not the first time. Remember what happened with Mike. You forgave her. Austin - It took awhile, years actually. Billie - You're just going to have to convince her now that you're the same guy she fell in love with. Austin - I am. I was drunk out of my mind. I don't even remember it. Doesn't really matter, does it? Billie shakes her head no. Austin - You know me Billie. I'm not the type of guy who would ever sleep around; now I guess I am.


HTS - Part 2: Abby - Why are you talking to me like this? Mel - Because I'm your best friend and I love you. Abby declares that she's not acting like she loves her. Mel - Friends don't let friends drive drunk. Friends also don't let friends do things that they know are going to hurt them. Abby - You're the one that's hurting me right now, not Austin. Mel - So Austin didn't hurt you when he said he was going to take Carrie on a ski vacation or when he ran out after Carrie after you said you had slept with him. Abby - I already told you ... Mel yells - STOP making excuses for Austin. I know you're hurting. You need to stop now because it's just going to get worse. Do you understand what I'm saying. Abby - I know that you want to help me but how can you if you won't even listen to what I have to say. Mel - What am I not hearing? Abby - That this is a really awful time for Austin right now. He's so upset with everything with Carrie. He's probably not thrilled with me either. Mel - Good, you get that! Abby - I do. the way that she found out ... Mel - From you. Abby - Yes, that wasn't great. But what kind of marriage is it if they can't be honest with each other. They have way too many problems to work things out anyway. Trust me, he has told me all about it. So the way I see it, this is a chance for him and me. Mel - How? Abby - Because everything is all out in the open now and we can finally have a chance to see where we can go from here. Mel - The only thing that's out in the open right now is that you slept with a married man. Abby - He was in so much pain. Mel - Did you think sleeping with him would make him feel better because it didn't work. He doesn't look a whole lot better.


Carrie's office - Part 2: Carrie wants to know what Rafe is thinking. Rafe - Here we are claiming the moral high ground because we only kissed. Carrie - At least we had some self-control. Rafe - That doesn't make it right. Maybe Austin wouldn't have done what he did if we hadn't kissed. Carrie - I'm not ready to let him off the hook yet and I'm not ready to hear that it was my fault. Rafe - That's not what I'm saying. I feel bad. Carrie - Don't. You didn't make him climb into bed with another woman. Rafe asks what happened. Didn't you go away to have time together to fix things and then Abigail just shows ups? Why? Carrie - Maybe she's obsessed, maybe he invited her, I don't know. Maybe he thought it would be cool to have his wife and his girlfriend at the same motel. Rafe - You don't really think that. Carrie doesn't know what to believe. I never thought he would sleep with someone else. I never thought he would stand by and let me give her love advice when in fact it was him that she was talking about. I've been married to him for 5 years; I've been with him most of my adult life - I don't even kinow him anymore. Rafe comforts her as she cries. Carrie walks around. Here we are in our office. We were going to do so many great things here - we had such big plans but we gave it all up because we thought we owed Sami and Austin not to work together after what we had done. Maybe if we'd known she had slept with EJ or thought my husband was doing one of his students we wouldn't have been so quick to make a change. We do know now so what do they owe us? What do we get? Rafe doesn't think seeing who can hurt who the most is a very good idea. Carrie - So you're going to take the high road again. Rafe replies that he's had more time to deal with what Sami did. This is brand new to you. Carrie - I don't see how time is going to make much of a difference to me. I just found out the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with has played me for a complete fool. I don't see how that hurt is going to go away. Rafe admits that when he thinks about what Sami did with EJ after everything he had done to her makes him want to smash EJ's head against the sidewalk. Carrie - And what do you want to do to her? Rafe - I try not to think about that. I just don't want to make my life any worse than it already is. Carrie - You worry about being a good person. Austin - So do you. Carrie - I used to. Rafe - What are you saying? Carrie - On the drive over hear I kept thinking one thought. I kept pushing it to the back of my brain - It was something you brought up earlier, how much of this is my fault. Rafe didn't say that this was her fault. Carrie - Thanks but if I'm totally honest with myself I can't say that Austin is totally to blame. Don't get me wrong. I'm still furious with Austin and hurt and confused. What he did was disgusting but before this happened we were already having problems. Rafe - Every couple has problems. Carrie - He was the love of my life unfortunately Sami felt the same way. Rafe says that Sami told him about the some of the things she did. Carrie - When we got past all that and got married I thought this was all I was ever going to need. But as I got older being married to Austin wasn't enough. Law school was something I'd always dreamed about and I finally gave it a shot. I started learning all these things about myself. I started looking at Austin differently too. I started wondering if the woman I had become was still wanting the same things as the girl who had fallen in love with him. And those thoughts felt disloyal - I never told them to anyone. Then we decided to move back here and I thought that was the answer. I thought we'd come back to Salem and I'd fall in love with Austin all over again but that's not what happened. Austin cheated but in my heart I was already cheatinng on him.


Austin & Carrie's hotel room - Part 3: Billie - So you're just a bum and there's nothing you can do to fix it. Austin - Isn't that what you said? Billie didn't say there was nothing he could do. Austin - You know what kind of person Carrie is. I crossed a line with her that can not be uncrossed. Billie knows what kind of person Carrie is. She's the first person I met in Salem, she was my roomie, she's my sister-in-law. So you're going through a bad patch in your marriage and this young, beautiful girl falls for you hard and you lost your mind for a little while. Austin - It wasn't even for a little while. It was one night. It was one stupid night. Billie - You're not a serial cheater; you're a loving husband and Carrie will remember that as soon as she's done hating your guts. They both laugh. Billie says it's going to take awhile. People are going to find out about it, they're going to avoid you like crazy - giving up and losing hope is a waste of time. You messed up. Your marriage is a wreck. How do you fix it? Austin - You really think that I can fix this? Billie - I think you better try. Austin - How? Unless Carrie gets amnesia and forgets what happened, how does she get over this? Billie - Time has a way of healing almost anything. Austin - Come on. You heard me when I came in here and thought you were Carrie. You know how lame that sounded. Billie points out he slept with Abigail only once; it's not like he was having an affair with her. Austin - Carrie and I had an arguement so what do I do? I go out and get loaded and I slept with this beautiful young woman who works for me. If I were you husband how do you get past it? Billie - You think about all the good things and what's right about the relationship. Austin - I'm supposed to convince Carrie how much I love her when what I did was the direct opposite of love. In fact it took our love and it shredded it. Billie doesn't want him thinking he can't make things right. Lucky for you I'm not going anywhere. I'm not giving up until you and Carrie are back together. That's the first piece of good news that Austin's heard in a long time. You know what else - I'm so happy to have my sister back. They hug.


HTS - Part 3: Mel - I don't care how special it felt to you. Sleeping with Austin was wrong and you know it. Abby - Austin had just seen Carrie kissing Rafe. He had been drinking, he was upset. Mel - It was your job to keep your head on straight. Abby - Stop. I don't want to argue with you about this anymore. Mel - Fine. So Austin leaves Carrie, are you guys just supposed to have some great new beginning? Abby - Yeah. You have never see us together. Mel - I've seen enough. Abby declares - He's my soulmate. We are so good together, so right and we both feel it. We didn't mean for it to happen this way but it did. Mel - I don't think he felt it when he pushed you out of the way to go after Carrie. Abby argues - He was feeling guilty. He was confused and upset. He'll get over it. Mel - So your dreams come true, he leaves Carrie, you guys get married ... there's an old saying Abby - If you marry a married man who cheated on his wife you married a married man who cheated on his wife. Abby - Maybe that was your story Melanie but it's not going to be like that for us. Mel - How do you know? Abigail - Because one day he and I will finally be together. Everything will be perfect. He'll teach and I'll finish school and we'll live in a cute little apartment somewhere and all this bad stuff will be behind us because we'll be able to love each other without feeling wrong for it. We can just be together and then the first time we make love, it will be amazing ... Mel - What do you mean the first time you make love? Abby - That's not what I said. Mel - You never slept with him! Abby - I mean when we make love together the first time as a couple. Mel - No, no, no. You got so wrapped up in your little fantasy that you finally told me the truth for once. Abby - No, Austin knows what happened. Mel - You said he'd been drinking. How much was he drinking? No response. Mel - Wow! So you have Austin thinking this too. And now Carrie knows. Abby - You're twisting my words. Mel - Stop lying to me. Abby - Fine, alright. It didn't happen. Mel - What did? Abby - We were kissing and it was about to happen but then he passed out. And then in the morning I realised he didn't remember very much. Mel - What did you do? Abby - He thought that we made love and I didn't want to lose him so I let him believe that we did. Mel - So it doesn't bother you that Austin thinks he slept with you ... Abby - Of course it bothers me. Mel - Good. Abby - I didn't mean to say it; I wasn't thinking. I heard it come out of my mouth and then I didn't know how to get it back. But the longer this ... Mel - Lie. Abby - Yeah. The longer this lie went on I felt that it was ... Mel - Real. Do you hear yourself? Austin and Carrie are in so much trouble because of something he didn't do. Abby - I keep telling you that they don't belong together. She totally took him for granted and when things went bad between them she went to somebody else. So yes it was a lie and I took a huge risk. So you're right, I did lie but that lie could have gotten him out of something that has gone completely wrong. Mel - Okay. You don't have a lot of experience in lying, I do - a lot! The thing about lies is that they will always come back and bite you in ass. Abby - So what am I supposed to do? Mel - You tell him ... NOW!


Alamainia - Part 2: Hope and John go back into their hotel room followed by Stefano. Why are you running? I told you were safe. Hope thanks him for getting them out of there. Passports please - she holds out her hand. Stefano - So the two of you are tired of sharing quarters. John - Just give us our passports and we'll be out of here. Stefano has to hold on to them for a little while longer. John stresses that Hope needs to get back to Salem. Stefano - Don't worry about Bo he's doing fine because Alexandra is a very good doctor. Hope - Bo's okay? Stefano - For now. Hope - I need to get home to him. Stefano - I did not rob those passports out of that building for nothing. John - So what do you want? Stefano - I've got a job for you to do. John - What kind of job? Stefano - When you need the information you'll get all the information you need. John - If you think we're doing anything for you ... Stefano - Don't forget something - you owe me. Hope - We don't owe you a damn thing. You set this whole thing up. Why are you doing this to us? Stefano - Because it's fun. Yes, I think that's it. John tells Stefano he'll stay here and do whatever he wants, just let Hope go back to her husband. Stefano - Sorry but for this job I need the both of you. When the time comes you will be given your instructions. He leaves. Hope throws their dufflebag against the door in frustration.


Carrie's office - Part 3: Rafe isn't sure he should be hearing this. Carrie continues - Austin sensed that I was pulling away so that's why he did what he with Abigail. He could feel what I was feeling and it made him angry. Rafe - It justified him cheating with a student? Carrie - He felt betrayed and I understand why. I was falling in love with someone else. I was falling in love with you.

************************************************

Thursday Mar 15

Coffee House - Part 1: Chad, Justin, Adrienne, Gabi, Maggie & Victor are gathered around. Sonny thanks them all for being there for the grand opening. Chad and I really appreciate your support and we hope to see you here a lot. Adrienne toasts to their success. Adrienne and Justin are so proud of Sonny. Sonny is so glad Victor could make it; he didn't think he would because of what's going on with Bo. Justin thinks it's good for him to take his mind off of all of it. Maggie tells Vic that she likes this place. She thinks the boys will do great. Vic is silent so Maggie asks if he would leave to leave; Sonny would understand. Vic tells her he's fine. Adrienne comes over and asks if there's any news on Bo. Maggie tells her he's stable; fighting hard to wake up. Adrienne tells Vic they're all praying for him. She thanks him for coming here; it means so much to Sonny. Vic smiles - It's not everyday that someone starts their first business. Why he needs that DiMera kid is beyond me. Justin tells the guys the place is really hep, cool, snazzy. It doesn't look like you were on a tight budget. I kept waiting for you to hit for me up for cash. Sonny says he didn't have to; I found my own investor. That's news to Chad. Sonny states that he wanted to stay anonymous. Chad accuses him of taking money from his father. We were supposed to be in this together. I turned my father down so he comes to you because he thinks he can buy me. I really read you wrong all long. I really thought I could trust you. He walks away. Vic then confronts Sonny. You mean to tell me you don't know any better than to have nothing to do with that man. If you needed money you should have come to me. Sonny - I didn't need the money because ... Vic - There's no way you can handle Stefano DiMera all on your own. Justin asks to see the contract; I'll see if there's some way I can get you out of it. After Vic makes a smart retort Sonny asks if anyone wants to know what really happened. Adrienne suggests that they let Sonny finish a sentence. He tells Chad that his father did come to him offering to invest but I turned him down. I know how you felt and I wouldn't do that to you. Our new investor has no connection with your father or the DiMera's; I checked. Chad - You said he was anonymous. Sonny - But it's not your father, it's not the DiMera's. I know that for a fact. He then faces his dad and Vic - I know your shocked but look around, I actually know what I'm doing.


Brady Pub: Marlena delivers an envelope to Brady. He tells her he could have come to the townhouse; he doesn't expect her to play courier. Marlena doesn't mind; she's so pleased that he's
taking over Basic Black while John is gone. Brady asks if she's heard from him. Not a word. Brady says that could mean that they're on a plane ride home. Marlena hopes so for Bo's sake. She asks him how he is; she knows he's working round the clock at Basic Black. He tells her that they're going to turn that company around; it's going to be great. Marlena asks if it's by design that the company is taking up all his time. She hasn't heard Madison's name mentioned and wonders how she feels about him working 24/7. He doesn't respond so Marlena tells him she's not prying. If you want to talk I'm a pretty good listener. Brady says even if he wanted to talk about it he wouldn't know where to begin. I proposed to her and I was thinking we were going to get married. Turns out she was already married. When I first learned she was married I didn't even want to talk to her. I felt played. Marlena asks him how he feels now. He doesn't know because she made me try to understand so much that this marriage meant nothing to her. Marlena asks if she believed him. Brady - I must have because I told her that I would help her get a divorce. She was relieved and she was happy and then the 180 happened and she said she's staying with Ian. I don't understand. It's like I'm dealing with 2 different people. Marlena asks him to tell her about that part. Brady was attracted to her because she was strong, because she was independent, I loved that about her. Then when she gets around Ian, this jerk, she becomes a helpless little girl. He has this power over her and I have no idea what it is. Marlena states that the relationship between Madison and Ian sounds very complicated. Brady - If she doesn't love him why doesn't she leave him? Marlena replies that there could be a lot of answers for that. Brady describes Ian as arrogant, he's an S.O.B. Marlena can hear that he's worried about her. What she can tell him is that ending this kind of relationship isn't just difficult. In the short term, for both of you, it could be destructive. Brady asks if she's saying he should just walk away. Marlena would never tell him what to do. This is a very delicate situation for the both of them. As much as you're hurting now it could be even worse. Brady loves this woman and thinks she's worth fighting for no matter what the consequences may be. Marlena tells him then he has to show Madison that she can count on him to be strong enough for the both of them. Brady can do that. Marlena knows that but warns him that it's going to be an uphill battle.


Madison's office - Part 1: Madison informs Ian that she's going to use social media as her main source of promotion. Ian asks if she's going to corner the market by using the same thing everyone else is using. It's your company. If you're comfortable with the predictable and the mundane why don't we just cross our fingers and do it your way. Madison thinks he's really enjoying this. Ian doesn't like to see her flounder. He says she's making critical decisions about her company when her head's not in it - you're distracted. Mad World used to be your whole world now it's what, some pasttime or something? You were a strong, independent, pioneering business woman 'til until you had that cliche driven affair with that muscle bound goon. You turned into this silly little dreamy schoolgirl. Madison - And it's Brady's fault? Ian says no it's yours. I don't blame him for anything. I'm surprised at you. You knew better than to be swept off your feet by that dunce. Madison - I should have been more business-like, more rational; like you. Ian warns her to watch her tone with him. Madison confronts him. This is not about me being a schoolgirl; this is not about my edge; this is not about my business; this is you seething with jealousy because I found something with Brady that I never came to close to having with you. Ian says she can't seriously think he's jealous of Brady Black. She does. Ian is not intimidated by those young punks that have all the depth of plastic wrap. Madison informs him that doesn't change the way she feels and that's what he's jealous of. Ian states that all she's feeling is an adolescent crush. Madison disagrees. If that's all it was you wouldn't have barely noticed. Brady showed me what love is and now that I know I can't ever be with anyone but him. Ian - Now 'you' understand love? There is no you without me. I made you what you are. Before you met me you didn't exist. Madison - I know you need to think that. Ian claims he doesn't need anything. I'm self-sufficient. You on the other hand are a bottomless pit of neediness and I am your main supplier and I'm warning you, don't you be running around behind my back with him because I will find out and take him down. His life will be bad enough being in prison for corporate espionage but I could make his life a living hell behind bars. You're not the only one that finds him pretty. Madison snaps - Shut up you S.O.B. Ian snaps back - You stop right there. You know what I'm capable of, almost anything but not mercy. Pull yourself together ... fast. Madison - I despise you. Ian - There's a fine line between love and hate. Now get your head back into your business. I don't need to remind you that I'm not only your employer, I'm also your husband. Brady will not be the only casualty. I enjoyed our little chat now get back to work. He leaves.


HTS - Part 1: Mel tells Abby she has no choice. You have to tell Austin you didn't sleep with him. Abby - I can't tell him. If I tell him he'll know I've been lying for this whole time. Mel - That would be the point! He deserves to know; so does his wife. Abby - I'm sorry okay. Mel - Okay but their marriage is on the line now and you need to fix it. Abby - I don't know why you're acting like what I did was so horrible, it's not like you've lived this blameless life. Mel knows that. But I did have a marriage blow up in my face so I kind of understand what Carrie's going through a little bit for no reason. Abby - That is not true. It's not for no reason. Yes, I lied but their marriage was so on the rocks before I was ever even involved. Mel - You lied to Carrie and Austin and you're lying to yourself now. Yes, you have feelings for Austin but he loves Carrie. He took her to Green Mountain to try and make their marriage work. Abby - He took her to Green Mountain because he felt guilty. Mel - No! He didn't just get her flowers, he took her on vacation so they could be alone and work through their marriage and I think deep down you know that. He wants to spend the rest of his life with her and there's nothing you can do to change that. Abby - You don't understand. Mel groans in frustation - I do understand. It's not complicated. You developed feelings for someone and you sold yourself on the idea that he had feelings for you in return. Abby insists - He does have feelings for me. Mel snaps loudly - No he doesn't. He thinks of you as a friend, that's it!


Carrie's office - Part 1: There's a repeat of the part of the conversation where Carrie tells Rafe she was falling in love with him. She gasps - I really said it. I tried to deny it but I couldn't escape it. I love you. Rafe doesn't know what to say. Carrie - You could start by saying that you feel the same way about me. Austin pipes up - I would like the answer to that question myself. Do you love my wife? Oh, is this a bad time? Carrie didn't know he was there. Austin - Oh yeah, that's clear. Carrie tells him they need to talk. Austin thinks it's going to be a really short conversation. I came here to ask for your forgiveness and I walk in on you telling your friend here that you love him. I don't think there's a whole hell of a lot to talk about. He stares at her - That's it. It's that look; answers all my questions. Rafe thinks he should leave ... Austin looks at Carrie - I think we've said all that we need to say unless you can tell me that you don't really love him. No response. Austin - One of your greatest qualities; you just can't lie. Carrie starts to say something but he tells her not to do that. Don't say you're sorry because it's only going to make it worse. I just have one last thing that I want to tell you regardless of how you feel about your friend here. I still love you. That's the one true thing that I've always known. It's what brought me here and it was the thing that I thought was going to get us through this. But you know ... wow ... I didn't have the whole story. Just for the record. I turned to Abby because I was hurt because you kissed your partner, your friend, our pal Rafe here and sleeping with her was wrong on so many levels it's not even funny. But you know what, it didn't mean anything. When it happened I was so drunk I don't even remember it. But you can't say the same thing to me. Because although you haven't slept with him yet, you love him. Well, at least we all understand each other. Carrie tells him she never wanted to hurt him. Austin believes her except she's fallen in love with Rafe and he doesn't know what to do with that. He leaves.


Madison's office - Part 2: Madison pulls out Brady's engagement ring and puts it on her ring finger - cue flashback. Later on Brady comes in and tells her they need to talk. Madison tells she can't, she's busy. Brady isn't going to leave until they talk. Madison recalls Ian's threats. She doesn't know what there is to say. Brady thinks there's a lot to say considering they were planning a life together and now you won't even look at me. Madison states that her life is with her husband. The life that the two of them talked about having can't happen. I'm sorry - that's the end of the story. Brady disagrees. What does he have on you? Madison needs him to go. Brady refuses. You're scared, he's strong; I understand that but I'm strong and I'm not scared. The two of us together are strong enough to take that guy down. I think what we have is worth fighting for. Madison - My life is with my husband. Brady doesn't believe her and he's not leaving. She tells him to get it through his thick skull; we had fun. I belong with Ian, I love him, I don't love you. Brady knows she doesn't believe that. The other day I held you in my arms and you told me how much you wanted to have a family together. Madison doesn't want to hurt him; that was a beautiful fantasy that he fit right into - the dream every little girl has; but the truth is I'm not a little girl anymore and you're not enough of a challenge for me. Sorry. Do you really want to prolong the agony. You are such a great guy and you're going to make some woman very happy but that woman is not me. Brady - You can't look me in the eye and say that. Madison - Actually I was just looking for this. She holds out his ring. Here, get on with your life. Don't keep holding on for something that is never going to happen. Find someone else. Brady - How could I have been so wrong about you? She shrugs. He grabs his coat and leaves.


Coffee House - Part 2: Vic gets off the phone; still no change. Justin tells him that Sonny knows he needs to be at the hospital; he'll be fine. Vic spoke to Daniel. Bo is going to be having more tests so he won't be able to see him anyway. Maggie strokes his arm - Then it's very nice that you're here with your family. Vic chuckles when he looks at Sonny - That kid; basically he told me to back off right in front of everyone. He's going to do great. Sonny's friends tell him the place looks great. One asks if he's seen Will around. Sonny hasn't but he's sure he'll be here soon. Sonny sits down next to Chad and asks him what's wrong; he seems preoccupied. Chad thought Melanie was going to be here by now. Sonny says just because she's 10 minutes late doesn't mean she forgot about you. Gabi feels that whatever is keeping her must be an emergency otherwise why would she miss something that was so important to you. It's too bad that she missed the grand opening; you did such an amazing job. She touches his hand - I'm really proud of you.


HTS - Part 2: Abby suggests that Mel leave. I already know everything you're going to say. Mel - No. Not until it sinks in that you can't do this to Austin or to Carrie. Abby snaps - I didn't do anything. Mel rebuts - You made Austin think you slept with him. Abby - Maybe we didn't literally sleep together but he wanted to, I wanted to - we both did. We care about each other. When his wife cheated on him, when she betrayed him, he came to me. Mel yells - NO! No, he didn't. There's nothing romantic about this. He was mad at Carrie, he drank too much, he went to his office to sleep it off. He didn't know you were going to be there. The only reason any of this happened is because he was really, really drunk. So drunk that you were able to convince him something happened that didn't happen. Abby - Stop it. Stop talking to me like that. Mel - NO! Look, at the end of the day, the person I'm most worried about is you. Mel takes a quick trip back to reality to call Chad and leave him a message apologising for missing the grand opening. She tells him Abigail is having a bit of a meltdown right now. She hopes she can make it up to him by taking him for dinner - she'll meet him at the Brady Pub at 7.


Carrie's office - Part 2: Rafe - Carrie, aren't you going to go after him? No, I don't want to. I want to say here with you. She closes the door. You still haven't answered my question. Am I alone in all of this? Rafe - No. You're not alone in this. Carrie is very glad he said that. Rafe couldn't really deny it. There's been something going on between us for a while now. We both know it. Carrie knew how she felt but she didn't know how he felt. Rafe - What? Kissing you didn't give it away? Carrie - We said that it was a mistake and it didn't mean anything. Rafe - That's what we had to say. Bottom line, it wouldn't have happened if we both didn't want it to happen. Carrie knows she did. Rafe - Like I said, it took two of us. Carrie moves closer - I'm glad. Rafe - This is very complicated. She goes in for a kiss but he moves away. Rafe - The bottom line is no matter how we feel about each other we're both still married to other people. Carrie - So what do we do? Rafe - What it comes down to is that in spite of everything that has happened the bottom line is Austin still loves you. Don't you think you owe it to yourself or to him to at least give it a chance. Carrie - Are you going to try and make it work with Sami? Rafe - This isn't about me and Sami. It's about you and Austin and what just happened here. If you think there's a chance that you can work things out you've got to try. Carrie - And you? Rafe - Don't think about me. It's the right thing to do. We both know it. I have to go.


Coffee House - Part 3: Chad is checking his cell phone when Sonny asks him for the keys to the storeroom. Chad thinks it's stupid locking up the storeroom during business hours; it's not like they're storing gold bullion in there. Sonny tells him to come help him with the cups. Chad's cell rings. Gabi sees it's from Melanie. She listens to Mel's message and deletes it. Oops. Marlena comes in and joins Victor and Maggie, Justin and Adrienne. It looks like the boys are doing well. She asks if Will is in back. Adrienne says no but Sonny is expecting him. Maggie asks if there's been word from John and Hope. No, not yet. I know Hope would move heaven and earth to get here if she could. She asks how Bo is doing. Vic says they're running more tests which is code for they don't know why he's not waking up. Marlena assures him that Bo is in the best possible hands. Sonny brings her the specialty of the house on the house - he thanks her for being here. Marlena tells him it's a wonderful place; I think you'll attract quite a crowd. Ian walks in.


HTS - Part 3: Mel joins Abby at one of the tables. Abby thinks Chad is waiting for her so she should go ... Mel doesn't care. I left him a message, said I'm not going. Abby - Why don't you just stop; mind your own business. Mel - I'm worried about you. Abby - You don't have to be. I'm fine. Mel - You don't lie to people. You don't manipulate people. Abby - I've also never been in love, not like this. Mel - You're going to end up hurt and alone and regretting this. This is not going to turn out the way you want it to. Abby - You don't know that. Mel snaps - Yes I do! Abby - Austin would never hurt me. He loves me. Mel drops her head on the table for a second then goes after Abby - No, he doesn't want to hurt you; you're not really giving him a choice. Look, he thinks of you as a friend. And you're funny and you're smart and you're beautiful but this happened because he was mad at Carrie, he got drunk and he acted like a guy. Abby - No, that's not true. You weren't there. You don't know what it was like. I was not just a substitute to him. He wanted me. Mel chases after her - If he had gotten behind the wheel of a car, he would have been arrested. You know that. He was not in control. The problem is when he was sober and in control at Green Mountain Lodge he still didn't love you. Abby - Yes he did. He couldn't say it because he felt guilty about his wife. Mel - Don't call her 'his wife', it's Carrie. It's your friend Carrie. It's the woman who tried to help you. You don't want to be responsible for ruining that marriage because of a lie. Now go find Austin and tell him the truth. Abby - No. I won't do it. I won't. I love him. I will not lose him. Mel - You're not going to lose him because you never had him. It's going to be okay. You'll get through this. You have to tell Austin ... Austin walks up - Tell me what?


Coffee House - Part 4: Chad looks at his phone and tells Gabi she's right - his phone is off. Gabi says maybe Mel got called in to work. Chad feels she must have had time to at least send a text. Gabi is sure she'll call him. And you know what they say - a watched phone never rings so let's go get dinner or something. It'll be fun; take your mind off things. Chad is just going to wait here a little longer if that's okay. Gabi points out that it's getting kind of late. Chad tells her she's right; Melanie isn't going to show up. Gabi - You've got to eat, right? And we should have some sort of celebration of your success. Chad agrees - let's go. Ian walks over to that table where everyone else is and greets Victor - Fancy seeing you here. When Marlena asks - Who's that? Maggie replies - The new CEO of Titan, Ian MacAllistair. Vic - A real jerk that I hired. Ian comments about another Kiriakis entrepeneur. He introduces himself to Marlena. Marlena replies - I'm Marlena Evans. Vic - Dr. Marlena Evans. She's a shrink; she'll see through you in a heartbeat. Ian tells Marlena to take what Victor says about him with a grain of salt. He's a great man but he's a very sore loser. Marlena smiles - I think I know Victor pretty well by now. Ian addresses Justin and Adrienne - You must be very proud of Sonny. They are. Justin - You know Sonny? Ian - Yes I do. Impressive young man. Vic - There's a canteen at Titan. You can have your tea and keep working. Ian - Actually I am working. I'm here checking on my latest investment and so far I must say, I'm very impressed. Vic - You're the anonymous investor? Ian - Well I'm no longer anonymous but yes it is me. Vic - Why? Ian - As I said, I'm new in town and I'd like to get involved as you are.


HTS - Part 4:Austin repeats - Tell me what. You know what, never mind. I don't want to hear it. Enough damage has been done already. Mel asks him to please wait. What she has to tell you is really important; you want to hear this. You need to hear this, right Abigail. Abby - Yeah Melanie is right. You deserve to know the truth.


**********************************************

Friday Mar 16

Countess Wilhemina - Part 1: Sami comes into the office with her suitcase talking on her cell to Grandma. She asks about the kids; she's so excited to see them. She'll definitely be there soon. She sees her belongings packed into a box. Kate comes in and greets her. Sami tells her that her flight came in late. It's been a long day; she's exhausted. She's just going to go over some stuff for tomorrow's meetings and then go and see the kids. Kate wants to know everything about her business trip. Sami suggests talking about it tomorrow. She asks who's been using her desk while she was gone. Kate tells her this isn't her desk anymore. Billie walks in - It's mine. Sami asks her what she's doing here. Kate had the brilliant idea of bringing Billie back to the company she founded years ago. Sami welcomes Billie back. She apologises for being at Billie's desk. She asks where she's supposed to sit. Kate is kind of surprised Sami would ask something like that since she just gave her such great news. If I had feelings they'd be hurt right now. Billie tells her mom she doesn't want to make waves. Sami says it's okay she understands that nepotism flourishes in Salem. Now that Billie is back do I still have a job here?


DiMera mansion - Part 1: EJ is leaving a threatening message for Will. If you don't call me back you can say goodbye to your apartment, your car and your job. Will rushes in and asks what's up. EJ is annoyed - he left him 5 messages. Will points out that he's here now. What do you want me to do? EJ wants him to make sure that when he calls Will picks up his phone no matter who he is with or what he's doing. I have a task for you. Lucas walks in - Save your breath Elvis. You're not Will's boss. I'm firing you effectively immediately. EJ makes a comment. Lucas was on his way to see his mom. He saw Will pull in before him and decided this was a great time to set the record straight. Will tells him it's fine. I'm a grown up now so you don't have to worry about my job for me. Lucas - I'm your father and father's protect their sons. He tells EJ to find another lackey because Will doesn't work for him anymore. EJ - No two weeks notice? What about William's car, his apartment, his 401K? They snipe back and forth. Lucas tells Will to tell EJ he's out of here. EJ tells Will if he tells him he wants to leave, he's free to go.


HTS - Part 1: As they walk through the square Austin reminds Abigail that the deal was they would walk and talk. They're walking but she's not talking. Abby - This is hard for me. The truth is ... pause ... I think Carrie should hear this too. Austin - That's not going to happen. Abby swears she's not trying to cause any more trouble for him and Carrie. Austin - You couldn't if you tried. Carrie's with Rafe. Abby - What do you mean Carrie's with Rafe now? Austin - I'm not going to get into this with you. You said you had something to tell me, tell me, not that anything you say could possibly make this better.

After Chad goes to get them menus Gabi grabs his phone. Ringer off, Melanie's not here, life is good.


Brady Pub - Part 1: Kayla greets Brady with a hug and asks if he's meeting anyone. No. She goes to get him a drink and he recalls Madison's final words to him as her looks at the engagement ring. Mel comes in. Kayla notices her looking around and asks if she's meeting anyone. She's supposed to meet Chad here. She notices Brady so she goes over and joins him. How's it going? She sees his drink - Drowning our sorrows? She asks him if he wants to alone. Brady thinks that's the best thing. Mel - Okay, you know where I am. Dan comes in and gives Mel a hug. He asks if she's alone. She's waiting for Chad. Mel tells him he can join them or ... I feel like Brady needs a friend right now. Dan thinks she's right. We'll talk later. Dan goes over and joins Brady - Can I get you a drink? Are you okay? Brady - No. Dan asks if he wants to talk about it. He doesn't. But I do want to kill that bastard. Dan - Obviously the guy's a world class jerk but you do know that killing him isn't going to solve anything. Brady thought about ending this a long time ago but he didn't want to picture his life without her. Dan knows how he feels. Brady thinks he should take a surfing jaunt to Maui; it seems to have helped Dan. Dan says unless he knows how to surf it's not going to help. Brady doesn't think anything is going to help him. Dan has been there but now he's on the other side. It gets better, it really does. Brady doesn't belive him at all. At her table Mel sends a text. Kayla pours her more coffee and asks if she just texted Chad. Mel says he should have been here by now. Kayla sits down. Call me old-fashioned but that little black box does more than text, surf - it's common knowledge that you can actually talk to someone on that. Maybe you should try that old fashioned approach and give him a call. Mel will.


Madison's hotel room - Part 1: Madison opens her door to find Ian there opening a bottle of champagne at a table set for two. He wanted to surprise her. Madison says she is surprised as she yanks the tablecloth off sending everything clattering to the floor. After what you did, you think champagne and cavair are going to fix it? It makes me want to throw up. Ian knows she's hurt. Madison snaps - Hurt doesn't begin to describe how I feel. I just said goodbye to the man I love; I shut the door on him forever. You know what feels worse, the way that I hurt him. The things I had to say to him. I broke his heart because you made me. I can't even look at you. Ian - I'm sorry. Madison asks what he's sorry for? For letting her out of his sight for too long; for letting me run Mad World on my own? You're sure as hell not sorry for making me miserable; you seem to be taking great joy from keeping me and Brady apart. Ian doesn't like to see her unhappy with that sad face - that's the face you had when I first met you. Madison - Right, you rescued me and I owe you. Ian keeps thinking about their wedding and honeymoon and how she was smiling; how she gripped his hand tightly in hers - you were afraid to fly but not after that day. Everything that you do matters to me - he talks about their time in Paris and how she said she'd never been so happy in all her life. Were you happy or was that just a lie?


HTS - Part 2: Gabi is sorry that Melanie bailed on him today but this sure beats what I was going to grab at the dining hall today. She sees that Chad has received a text from Melanie so she pretends to be cold. She asks Chad to go find their waiter because she asked for some lattes and they never got here. Chad does as she asks - she deletes his message. Chad returns. Gabi tells him she's having a great time just hanging out with him.


Brady Pub - Part 2: Kayla returns to Mel's table and asks if she's having trouble making that call. Mel did; she left him a message. He didn't answer; it just went to voicemail like the last time. Kayla misses the good old days when you called and people were either there or they weren't. Mel thinks she is going to go old school and just find him herself. She asks Kayla to tell her dad that she left.


Countess Wilhemina - Part 2: Kate asks why she's so paranoid. Did you do something I would have to fire you for? No of course not. Kate tells her not to worry, there's plenty of work to go around. Sami thought she was handling it. Kate reminds her that just the other day she told her she was overworked. She adds that Billie really missed Salem. Billie says now that Lucas and Austin are home she felt it was the time to come home. Countess W was always my baby. Plus I can't wait to see my niece and nephew. Lucas sent her pictures. Will is so grown up and Allie is adorable. Kate says there is another reason she brought Billie back - I trust her. Sami - As in you don't trust me? Kate - No. I meant that you're going to be working on finding the mole in the company and I need to be around people I can trust. Who better than my baby? You find the mole and I will find you a very special place, I guarantee that. Sami is working on it. Kate says good. Sami just had an idea. I'm working on finding this mole maybe Billie would love to do some of the out of town stuff. You love to travel, right Billie? Billie nods yes. Kate says you're doing so well - absolutely not. You just have to buckle down and work - here take this - she handles her a file. Kate brings in more work for Sami who is now alone in the office. Sami tells her she needs to go home and see her kids. Kate - Isn't it past their bedtime? Sami says not yet. Kate thought she understood that finding the mole is her number one priority. Sami tells her it is but it's late and she hasn't even eaten. Kate tells her that's why the vending machines are filled with stuff with sugar and caffeine. Grab yourself a ho-ho and start analzying those emails and if you find anything suspicious flag it and I'll look at it tomorrow. Sami is going to put the IT department on that tomorrow. Kate says absolutely not. Anyone of them could be the mole. I need you to personally search through everything. You're the only one I trust to do it and when you find that mole I guarantee you you're going to get everything you deserve and more. Billie comes in and hears this.


DiMera mansion - Part 2: Will tells EJ that his dad doesn't have much of a say in this. I still want to work for you. EJ likes his backbone. Lucas doesn't really care what Will says. I'm your father and I say this so called job ends here and now. EJ makes a smart remark. Lucas tells him to stay out of this. Will tells his dad he loves him. I know you're just trying to help me and I appreciate it but I love my job. Because of EJ I've got my own car, my own apartment; I've got money, independence and I like the things he has me doing for him because it's challenging and always different. Lucas - He's blinding you to what's ahead. It's just a matter of time before he has you committing arson or maybe killing someone; is that what you want? EJ - I don't think Samantha would be alive if that were the case. Lucas wants Will to leave with him. Will refuses. I'm working for EJ. I never asked for your permission. Lucas - You're not working for EJ. I forbid it. EJ tells Lucas he really doesn't have any say in the matter. Will wants to work for me. Lucas - I know you blackmailed him into this. EJ - That does explain why you're in a bit of a snit I suppose. After all you did move heaven and earth to protect William after he shot me. Even went so far as to turn yourself in for the crime. What was harder - doing the time or having to fend off all those gentlemen courters. Lucas - I wish I did shoot you; you'd be dead. I paid Will's debt to society. There's nothing you can use to keep him under your thumb anymore so either you let him go or I'll go to the media and tell them everything. EJ - If you tell them everything you'll ruin your son's reputation that you're working so hard to protect. Lucas - I doubt the media will hear anything past The Mayor and blackmail. Will - Please don't do this. Lucas - It's up to EJ, it's his call. EJ - I wouldn't worry about it William. Your old man isn't going to have to make good on his threat. Lucas knew he would cave. EJ is simply letting Will go. You're free to do whatever it is you wish to do. You can keep the car and the apartment and keep quiet about your homicidal tendencies. Lucas is going to hold EJ to that. Let's go. Will - Sorry, I think I'm going to stay here. Lucas tells Will that working for EJ is like sleeping with the enemy. You know what the DiMera's are like and what they put our family and friends through. Look what Stefano did to your grandmother Marlena - what EJ did to your mom and Rafe - do you really want to cast your lot with this guy. Will does. Lucas asks if he's afraid of EJ. No he likes working for him. Obviously he didn't at first because he didn't have a choice but he's glad of the way things worked out. He's a great boss. Lucas points out that there are better bosses and even better role models. Will can't think of any. EJ thanks him. Lucas - I'm your father and I care about the direction your life is going into - working for EJ is not the way to go. Will - No offence Dad but it's a little too late for you to start telling me what to do. If I want role models, you're not the perfect one. I'm sorry but it's true. Lucas knows he hasn't been here for him lately. I'm really sorry but I love you and I want you to think twice about working for this idiot. Will - You talked about sleeping with the enemy; your mom is married to Stefano so why are you freaking out because I'm working for a DiMera. Lucas - Because it's different. You don't know the history between your grandmother and Stefano. Will concedes he doesn't but she loves him and I love my job with EJ. I don't care that he's a DiMera anymore than I care that Chad's a DiMera. He has a bad rep but I think he's an okay guy. EJ thanks him again and adds that he's a very valued employee. Lucas can't believe it's come to this. Will - Maybe you're upset because the man you call the son of Satan was here for me when you weren't. EJ smirks. Will thinks Lucas needs to go because he and EJ have some work to do. Lucas tells EJ he may have won this round but it's just a matter of time before Will sees you for the sick bastard you really are. They exchange barbs. Lucas warns that if he hurts Will in any way you'll answer to me. He leaves. EJ congratulates Will. You are your own man. He offers him some brandy which Will accepts. I have big plans for you William.


Madison's hotel room - Part 2: Madison tells him it wasn't a lie; she was happy. I grew up with nothing and I was hungry for a pat on the back, for any kind of attention from you. Ian still finds it hard to believe that he was the first person to stand up and notice her. Madison - Well you were. You were so worldly and smart and charming. I couldn't believe that someone like you was interested in someone like me. Ian states that he was. Madison - You really made me feel like I was worth something. Ian - You are worthy. Madison - Of what? A man who cheats on me, sleeps with other women and flaunts it in my face; who's only interested in using me? Ian says that's not true. Madison disagrees. The first time I found out that you had been unfaithful to me you ruined my trust; you destroyed it. Then when I found out about the next woman and then the next and the next, I just somehow convinced myself it was okay that way. I didn't think it could get any worse. But it has. I met Brady and he showed me what real love is. Ian recalls her saying the very same thing about the two of them. Madison didn't know better but now she does. The minute I found something that makes me happy you took it from me. You destroyed me once again. If you owe me anything it's a real answer. Why? You don't really love me. What the hell do you get from destroying my life?


HTS - Part 3: Abby - I thought if Carrie knew the truth about how drunk you were the night that you were with me it would make things better. Austin - That's it? That's what you made such a big deal about - that you had to get off our chest? Abby - I was trying to help you. Austin - I told her all those things and none of it matters. She's never going to get over the fact that we slept together. Abby - I'm sorry that you have to go through this. Austin - I just can't believe that I lost her. After all these years of being happy and then ... Abby - And then I came along? I'm still here. I'm right here. I care about you. You have no idea how much and I love you. I would never leave you. Austin wriggles out of grasp - Abigail! This has to stop. Do you understand me? This stops RIGHT NOW! Abby - I don't understand. Why won't you be with me? If Carrie is with Rafe we can be together finally! Austin - Because one thing doesn't have anything to do with the other. What you don't understand is that no matter what happens between Carrie and me you and I can't be together. I'm sorry. There never was an us and there never will be. He walks away.

Chad asks Gabi if she's done - she only had like 2 pieces of lettuce. She reminds him they have that big TV shoot coming up. Chad - Like you have anything to worry about. Gabi sees that he's come to terms with this whole modelling thing. How come? Chad says if he has to be in front of a camera half-naked with a beautiful woman, he's glad that woman is her. Mel rushes up. I knew I would figure out where you were. Chad thought she was busy with Abigail so Gabi and I decided to grab a bite. Mel says she was; I called you and I texted you. Chad checks his phone. You never heard from me because my phone is turned off; how the hell did that happen. All that matters is that you're here now. Mel is so sorry she missed the coffee house opening. Chad tells her it's okay - do you still want to hang out. Mel points out he's having dinner with Gabi. Chad looks at Gabi - We're done, right? She says yes, go hang out with Melanie. Chad leaves money for the bill and they leave. Gabi is not happy.


Brady Pub - Part 3: Brady gets that Jennifer would still have feelings for Jack but Madison doesn't love this guy. She can't possibly love him. I know who she loves. She loves me. Dan says that's crazy. I get that you're tearing yourself apart trying to figure out why she's doing this but trust me it doesn't matter. Do you really think that you have her whole heart? And do really think that you can get past what she's done to you? Don't make the same mistake I did; don't keep rushing back into the war zone. Turn your butt around and keep on going. Get on with your life. Trust me, you do that and it will be the best thing for the both of you.


Madison's hotel room - Part 3: Ian is upset that she still doesn't believe he wants to be with her. Is this what he's done to you? Turned you into this insecure, little girl? Have you any idea what you mean to me? I created you. You are nothing without me. Madison says that isn't true. Ian claims it is. And I won't let someone walk in here and reap the rewards of my hard work. Madison - You own me, is that right? Do you have any idea how sick you are? Ian warns her to stop testing him. If you think Brady is suffering now then you have no idea. Madison - Are you threatening Brady? Ian - No. I'm just saying you're no good for him. Look what you've done to him. He's no good for you either. He's turned you into a snivelling mess. I won't allow anyone to destroy the person that I love. Madison - You're the one that destroyed me Ian. How do you not see that? Ian will send someone up to clean up this mess. Goodnight. Madison sits on the bed and cries as Ian listens outside the door.


Countess Wilhemina - Part 3: Billie asks what's going on. Kate she just had a thought. We could take Sydney, Allie and Johnny out to dinner tonight. Sami says that is a great idea. Kate meant the two of us - You have to stay here and work. Sami - But they're my kids. Kate knows but you see them all the time and we don't. Besides you have that project you're working on and I need a presentation on the highlights of your trip by tomorrow morning. Sami points out that it will take her all night to do that. Kate says that's alright. Billie and I can put the kids to bed. Kate tells Sami she appreciates all the work she is doing. I'll see you in the morning. After they leave Sami murmurs - Bite me bitches.


Brady Pub - Part 4: When they arrive at the pub Billie asks Kate what's going on with her and Sami. You hate her so much why would you make her a top executive at Countess. Kate says she and Sami bonded over the grandkids a bit. She was working for Mad World at the time and doing a fantastic job. I decided to hire her away from Madison. Well it turns out that Madison and Sami set me up. Sami is the mole. Billie - OMG. Why haven't you fired her? Kate - That isn't good enough punishment for her. I am going to making her suffer and suffer she will. I guarantee it.


Countess Wilhemina - Part 4: Sami is juggling a stack of files when she glimpses a picture of her and Rafe and the kids.

Monday Mar 19

Spa - Part 1: Billie is quite impressed by the backside physique of a guy working out. When he turns around she sees that it's Daniel. Billie tells him he doesn't have to stop on her account; that was a pretty intense workout. Dan could use a break. Dan thought she'd be at home; she needs some rest. Billie asks if she has dark circles under her eyes. Dan says she looks great but she's been logging a lot of hours in Bo's hospital room. That can get pretty draining pretty fast. Billie is fine. She's just glad she's here. Dan says since they can't reach Hope it could make a big difference that Bo hears her voice. Billie thanks him for saying that but it doesn't make a difference; I just wish he'd wake up. Dan says it doesn't hurt to keep wishing. Billie knows he can't be there 24/7 but he left Bo in good hands, right? Dan has it covered. He has his pager with him in case there's any change. Billie - You're not sugar-coating any of this, are you? Bo really has a chance at getting better. Dan replies 'You know how strong he is.' Billie says
he has a lot to fight for; his wife, his family, his kids. Dan - What about you? Billie - Bo and I are over. We were over a long time ago. We're just friends, that's all. Dan - Are you sure about that? Billie - Yes. Bo was a huge part of my life for a really long time. He straightened me out when my life was a mess. He gave me a beautiful daughter and he will always be an important part of my life but yeah, I'm sure.


Brady Pub - Part 1: Abe brings Lexie a fresh coffee. He saw her at work. She asks him to join her. Lexie sometimes needs to escape the insanity of the hospital. Abe remembers when she used to come home to him and Theo when she needed that kind of escape. Lexie - You say you don't want to put pressure on me then you make a comment implying that I'm the one who broke up our family. Abe reminds her that she is the one who said they had to be apart. Lexie argues that he knows why. Abe apologises. He asks how Theo is doing? He's with a sitter tonight. Abe tells her she could have called him. Lexie points out that he has a lot to do. Abe - Yeah, handing my job over to EJ. He tells her it was never about the job, it's about protecting this town. Lexie sarcastically replies - I know, from my amoral family. Abe - Theo should be with me; you both should be. I just miss you both so much. We've all lost so much. Lexie tells him to stop. Abe knows he lied and broke their trust but you have to believe me when I say I did not fix that election. Look at me - after everything we've gone through are we really going to let it end over this. Lexie - In other words my past mistakes are much worse than yours. (Abe makes a remark that I didn't quite catch - sounded like - That's one way of saying it or he didn't say it ... but I'm not sure.) He asks again how Theo is doing. Lexie - He's ... Abe - Does he ask about me? Does he understand that I didn't leave because I wanted to. Lexie - Yeah. I talked to Marlena about what to tell him and I told him the truth. He's having a hard time. Your story is all over the news. The kids at school talk. Theo doesn't understand why the father he idolizes would do something so bad. Abe - He doesn't actually believe I'm guilty of fixing the election. Lexie - It's too complicated for him to understand. He knows you're not going to be the mayor anymore. He knows you're not one of the good guys anymore and it's rocked his world. Abe is so sorry. Lexie did ask him if he wanted to see you. Abe - And he said ... she shakes her head no. Abe - OMG. He said no.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 1: Nicole rubs her stomach as she stands in front of mirror. She hides her pregnancy pamphlets when Rafe knocks on her door. Nicole asks him what he's doing here. He was worried about her. Nicole tells him she's fine. Rafe - That was a pretty intense altercation you got in with EJ at the square; I'm glad I was there. So is Nicole. Rafe - Are you sure you're okay. She's as fine as she can be under ... Rafe - If you want to press charges ... Nicole says no. He grabbed my arm, I got upset. It was no big deal. Rafe thinks it was a big deal. He's the mayor of Salem now. I think the people deserve to know what kind of person he is. Nicole - Seriously? You don't think they know? Come on, he's a liar, a sociopath, a serial cheater, scum; yet they elected him anyway. And I helped him get there because I was stupid enough to climb into bed with him again. Rafe doesn't think it's healthy for her to think that way. Nicole tells him he's right. I'll keep thinking to myself 'Look on the bright side Nicole, you're not as stupid as he was.' I mean you have to be as insane to go back to Sami. No offence. Rafe completely understands why she feels that way. No offence but you're looking a little stressed. It's okay. I haven't exactly been taking good care of myself either. You know what I miss the most ... having a kitchen. Nicole - You're telling me. But you were Sami's chief cook and bottle washer; I had a french chef. Rafe - Who really likes french food anyway. Nicole - Me. Rafe - Really? Rafe unpacks the brown bag he was with him. I brought good old American comfort food; greasy fried chicken, mashed potatoes and all the fixings. Nicole runs for the bathroom and throws up.


Countess Wilhemina - Part 1: Sami is surprised to see Lucas come in. He heard his mom had her burning the midnight oil so he'd thought he'd come and see how she's doing. What is all this? It's her quest. Remember your mom put me in charge of finding the mole at Countess W. Lucas offers to give her a hand. If I do you'd be able to go home besides it would be nice to find out who that lying, backstabbing mole really is. Don't worry. We'll find out who the mole is tonight. Nobody is that good that they can hide their trail. Everything leaves a record. Sami tells him he doesn't have to do this. Lucas reminds her he hopped on a plane to help. Sami snaps - If you really want to help me then just leave me the hell alone. Lucas asks her what her problem is right now. Sami says her problem is that he made it clear he was here for Will too. Your son needs you. Lucas thinks what he needs is a break from me. I just had a little encounter with EJ. I told him Will wasn't going to be his employee anymore. Sami - I bet that went over well. Lucas - It went over worse with Will. He actually likes working for EJ. Sami doesn't believe that. I'm sure he's just doing it to get back at me. Lucas - That's not what he says. He says he likes the independence it gives him. He's 18 years old. He's not flipping burgers. Have you seen that kid's apartment; the view he has? Sami hasn't seen it. Lucas - Well, he thinks he's living the good life. Sami - How about that new car? Did he take you for a spin? Was he speeding? Lucas just smiles - What do you think? He tells Sami to relax. Will has a good head on his shoulders most of the time. I think he's going to be okay in the end. Sami - No you don't and I don't think that either. He is working for EJ. Who knows what is going to happen to him. Who knows what he's going to do when EJ tells him he's got to steal something or make a drug run ... Lucas - He's not going to make a drug run, relax! He's going to know when to draw the line. Hopefully we taught him the difference between right and wrong. Sami - What if we didn't? What if I didn't? What if I screwed him up for life? I'm scared for our son.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 2: When Nicole comes out Rafe apologises. Nicole asks him why he's sorry; I'm the one that ran in the bathroom and lost my lunch. You probably shouldn't get too close to me because I think I'm coming down with a bug or something. Rafe asks if she's taken her temperature. No. Rafe checks her forehead. You don't have a fever. She asks if he's a human thermometer. Rafe had lots of practice with the kids. Nicole asks if he's seen Sydney lately. No, not so much. Nicole - They must miss you. Rafe is sure they miss her too. She covers her mouth. She waves at the food - Could you please ... Rafe - Got it. It's out of here. He sets it outside the door. He asks her how long she's been feeling this way. Not too long. Rafe - Maybe it's something you ate. Nicole - Please don't mention any kind of food. Ever since this happened I haven't been able to ... Rafe - You don't have a bug, it's not something you ate ... Nicole, any chance you're pregnant? Nicole? OMG! Wow. Please tell me the baby's not EJ's. Nicole - Of course the baby is EJ's. What kind of woman do you think I am? Rafe - I'm sorry. I did not mean to imply anything it's just that it would be a hell of a lot easier if the baby wasn't EJ's; if he wasn't the father. Nicole snaps - Don't you think I know that? Rafe sits next to her on the bed. What did he say when you told him? Nicole - Nothing because he doesn't know that I'm pregnant and he's not going to find out because what you just heard stays in this room. Rafe - Absolutely. You do realise though that I just figured it out so chances are EJ is probably going to figure it out. Sami tried to keep a baby from him and we all know how well that turned out. Nicole - You don't have to remind me. I'm not going to show for a while so I have time to figure it out. Rafe asks if she's feeling any better. She wishes she was. I haven't been able to keep anything down. Rafe - I don't need to tell you that's not good. Have you seen a doctor? Nicole - Of course I'm seeing a doctor. Rafe thinks she should call him. She insists she's fine. You can't just walk into an OB-GYN office's or call a nurse and ask her questions because EJ has eyes and ears everywhere. I've been through this before and I know what feels normal and what doesn't. Rafe - If you say so. Nicole - I do. The baby and I are fine and it's going to stay that way because EJ is never going to hear about this.


Spa - Part 2: Billie is now going at the punching bag. Dan sees her and says that's impressive. Remind me not to get on your bad side. Billie - As long as my daughter stays on the other side of the ocean, I think we're good. Sorry, I know I owe you one for taking such good care of Bo. Dan asks where she learned how to box like that. From her brother. We had it kind of rough growing up; came in handy. Dan - If you got some footwork going with that uppercut you'd be lethal. Billie - What's wrong with my footwork? Dan - Nothing, you could kick it up a notch. Billie - Would you like to show me? Dan - Would you take your gloves off? Sure. Let's go. Dan helps her remove her gloves. Billie says her brother is a piano player and he boxed. How could you be a surgeon and box? Don't you worry about your fingers. Dan informs her that he isn't a surgeon anymore. Hand tremors aren't very helpful in the OR. Billie is sorry. He tells her not to worry about it. He's actually making peace with the fact that he can still be a doctor and help people; just not the way he thought he could. Billie understands. So Dan starts the footwork lesson - during the lesson she sucker punches him in the gut - it's actually quite funny. Billie asks if he's okay. Dan wasn't expecting that - he's okay. He brings up the fact that she used to work for the ISA. He notices her favouring her hand and asks if she hurt it. He asks if he can look at it. Yes. When he starts examining it she pulls away - On second thought I'm fine.


Countess Wilhemina - Part 2: Sami - I can't believe Will is doing this to me; I mean to himself. I know he knows what a monster EJ is. Lucas talks about how his mother made him work hard when he was growing up; she said it would build character. The point is we basically taught Will the same thing. He's 18 years old; someone dangles those kind of perks in front of you ... I've got to be honest ... I don't know if I could say no. Sami - Really? Will is a smart kid. I can't believe he doesn't see what this is really all about. Lucas - It's his first taste of the real world and a real job. Sami - Working for EJ is not the real world. Lucas - Yeah, I know. I'm afraid he's not going to understand what's at stake; the consequences, until he's face to face with them. Lucas closes a file - There's nothing useful in here. Sami tells him he's right. She's just going to report to Kate that this is a wild goose chase; we're never going to find the mole. Lucas thinks they just need to be a little smarter about it. We could use this computer to find out who in this company has been in contact with Mad World Cosmetics. All we have to do is look up the IP addresses and the proxys and that will lead us right back ... Sami - I should do that. Lucas insists that he's good with computers. Sami is better besides she works for the company - she brings up proprietary information. He tells her to relax; his mom owns the company. Sami tries to convince him to let her do this. Lucas says she's acting like she doesn't want him to find out who the backstabber is. Sami snaps - You're right, I don't! Lucas - Why? Sami - Because it's me. I'm the mole.


Brady Pub - Part 2: Lexie is sorry. She didn't want to have to tell him that. Abe is sorry. I just can't believe my own son doesn't want to see me. Lexie - Marlena said not to force the issue; give him time. Of course he'll want to see you, he loves you. Abe - Just tell him that I love him so much. Lexie tells him that every night. Abe talked to Marlena too. I talked to her about us. She said we have to keep communicating. She talked about how she and John lost so much time together when he was paralyzed. She didn't know if he'd ever be well again. When he was in jail she didn't know when he would ever be free again. Now she doesn't know when he's going to come home. Lexie - So you're saying I should count my blessings. I'm trying. I'm just having a really hard time doing that right now. Abe - I'm just saying that life is short. The most important thing my mother taught me is to keep the faith. Lexie doesn't know if there is hope for them. Abe - For Theo's sake ... Lexie - Don't push me. Abe - What can I say to make this better. Lexie - Nothing. No matter what you say I'll still have my doubts. Abe - What doubts? Lexie - About whether or not I can trust you. Abe - I'm not going to give up. I'm going to do everything I can to put those doubts to rest and win back your trust. After everything John and Marlena have been through, doesn't that give you hope? Lexie - There's one difference between John and Marlena and me and you - John was innocent. He didn't lie to Marlena. I need to get back to work. You take care. She leaves.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 3: You saw how nuts he acted because he doesn't want me to let go. Can you imagine how he'll act if he finds out a baby is involved? But he's not going to because he thinks I can't get pregnant. I didn't think I could get pregnant. Rafe - What did the doctor say? Nicole - It's a miracle. Rafe - How do you feel about this miracle now that EJ's not in the picture? Nicole - Crazy, confused and incredibly happy. At one time I would have done practically anything to have a baby with EJ; I practically did do everything. Rafe - Yeah. You don't need to remind me. Nicole - I know I don't. It's ironic, isn't it? Sydney is not in my life or yours. And all I have is this baby. The doctors told me that I'd never be able to carry a baby full term. So when I lost my little girl it was the worse thing that could ever happen to me and that's saying a lot. If anything happens to this baby I don't know what I'll do. I'll die. Rafe - You've got to take care of yourself; avoid stress. So what are you thinking anyway - you just going to leave town? Nicole - I don't know. I don't have any friends. I don't have any family. But you know what, I'm never going to be alone. I'll get a really good divorce settlement. Rafe - Great, and how do you think you're going to travel when you're feeling this lousy. Nicole - I figure I have some time before I start showing. Rafe - Maybe forever if you don't eat, don't stay hydrated. Nicole - Are you a doctor? Have you ever had a baby - no, I don't think so. Rafe - You're right. I'm not a doctor but neither are you and you need one. Who did you see before? Nicole - Daniel. He helped me the night I found out I was pregnant. Rafe - Do you trust him? She does. Rafe - You should call him. Nicole - I can't keep calling Daniel everytime I feel morning sickness. She heads to the bathroom and throws up again. Rafe - It looks like you have morning, noon and night sickness to me.


Countess Wilhemina - Part 3: Sami states that this was all Madison's idea. She tells him all about the plan and admits that Kate fell for it. Lucas - So you were giving her false info, trying to take down my mother. Sami - She started it. She was trying to take down Madison first. Lucas can't believe she did this. Sami tells him that's not the whole story. She came to work here and got everything in place for this plan to work and then Madison got cold feet. Lucas asks why. Sami doesn't know; maybe because of her relationship with Brady. The point is she totally left me here working for Kate. Lucas - And you knew my mom would kill you if she found out what you were doing. Sami - Yes so that's when I decided to quit Mad World and now I'm really working for Kate. Lucas - That's great. Now I have a headache. My head is spinning because of you. Sami - Come on. I'm serious. I really am. I'm really going to work for Kate and make this work at Countess W. Everything was going great. Don't you see the irony in this. Kate thinks there is a mole now when there isn't. I'm totally being loyal now. Lucas - You are driving me nuts. I can not believe this! I can't believe I didn't see this coming. Of course you're the mole. Who else would it be? It's just so you! Sami - Is that really all you have to say? No he has a lot more to say. When you called me and told me your life was a mess, I flew here for you. We spent the whole first night talking about EJ and then you told me that you felt so bad because you screwed things up with Will and Rafe. But yet you didn't tell me about this. Don't you think this is something I should know. Sami - No. Because I knew you were going to lecture me like you're doing now. Lucas - Of course I'm going to lecture you and here's to somebody lecturing you and having it sink into that head of yours. But I won't hold my breath for that. Sami - I'm tired of the Sami bashing, it's time to start problem solving. Lucas isn't done with the Sami bashing because the Sami I know doesn't know right from wrong. It's all about her ongoing rationalization of whatever's happening to her at the moment. Sami - Wait a second. You're exactly the same way. Lucas - I was - I'm not like that anymore. Sami - Oh you grew up, did you? What about your bimbo ex-wife Chloe Lane? She was so loyal, smart and supportive. Now you have another bimbo, April. Lucas - April is ... Autumn is not a bimbo! Sami sarcastically retorts - I'm sure she's terrific. Lucas says she is and she cares about me, she understands why I'm here. She's very supportive and she can't wait to meet my family. I told her all about Will and what a great kid he was; how mature he is for his age. How when he was little he was like this little old man all wrapped up in one. Now I can't even recognise the kid. Sami - What is that supposed to mean? Because he spent so much time with me? Lucas - I don't know. If the shoe fits, you've got to wear it. If he can rationalize working for EJ as a good thing ... Sami - Even I couldn't rationalize working for EJ. We can't keep talking about this. We have to focus on what's really important right now - making sure Kate doesn't find out I'm the mole. Lucas - You know how my mother is especially when she's betrayed. She's determined to find out who the mole is so it doesn't matter whether I keep your little secret or not. Don't you see, eventually it's going to come out. The truth always does.


Spa - Part 3: Dan asks what is wrong. Billie knows his M.O. You feels someone's glands, then you take their liver out, then you put their heart back in their chest and then ooh, all of a sudden Dr. Dan's in love. Dan - You think I purposely ... no, I was just checking to see if you broke anything. Billie - I don't want you to check anything or I will break you. You've been with my mother, you've been with my daughter ... what, are you trying to keep it in the family. Dan - Whoa - You actually think ... You have the completely wrong idea. You're an attractive woman but if you really think I'm interested in you, you're out of your mind. Billie - Thank you for making your no interest in me so clear. Dan - I just got out of a relationship; I'm trying to get over it. Billie knows he got out of a relationship with Jennifer. She's an old friend of mine and so is Jack. She apologises. I know you had a very special relationship with Jennifer and I'm sorry to belittle it. I didn't mean to jump down your throat. Dan tells her it's okay. I'm just trying to put this year behind me. Billie - Tell me about it. Billie tells Dan she likes this place. I think I'll spring for a membership. He asks if she's staying in Salem for a while. A while - I guess our boxing lesson was a bust. Dan says they can do it another time as boxing buddies. Billie - As in not interested in me ... Dan - Exactly. He's glad they got that cleared up. They talk a bit more and then she walks away.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 4: Rafe calls out to Nicole - Are you okay? I think I should call Daniel. She comes out of the bathroom. I feel like I have the worse flu ever. I should start painting my nails green to match my skintone. Rafe - At least you haven't lost your sense of humour yet. Nicole - No, just everything else. Rafe offers to help her back into bed. Before he gets a chance to do that she passes out.

****************************************

Tuesday Mar 20

Chad's Dorm Room - Part 1: When there's a knock on the door Chad quickly gathers up clothing from the floor and throws it under a chair. It's Gabi. She has the most exciting news for him. She tells him to close his eyes ... she pulls out a magazine and opens it. She tells him to open his eyes. It's our first magazine ad; we're going to be famous. Chad is quiet so she thinks he doesn't like it. No, he's in shock - we're in a magazine! Gabi - I know. She thanks him. She knows this wouldn't have happened if he hadn't agreed to model with her. Chad says she could have totally done this on her own. You're a natural. Look at how beautiful you are - he holds up the magazine. Gabi tells him this is the best night of her life and I owe it all to you. She hugs him. Chad hands her a glass of OJ and makes a toast - Here's to us; the newest superstars of the modelling world. To us. Gabi still can't believe this is actually happening. First magazine ads, then billboards and then if we're lucky, tv commercials. This is just the beginning. Chad - Maybe for you. Modelling isn't exactly the career path I had in mind. Gabi - Are you crazy? What's not to like? The fame, the glamour, the money? That stuff doesn't really appeal to Chad. Gabi - That's because you grew up rich and you don't know what it's like to be without. Chad - And you do Ms Designer Jeans? Gabi - I'm wearing designer jeans yes, but I worked my butt off to get them. You want to know why I work so hard. My mom worked 3 jobs and still struggled to put food on the table. When I was a kid I promised myself I would do anything to not get to that place - to do better for myself and my family. So if modelling does that for me I'm going to do whatever it takes and nothing is going to stop me.


Coffeehouse: Abby apologises for pulling Mel away from her date. Mel was already on her way home but she would have left her date; she knows this is really hard for Abby. Mel knows it doesn't feel like it now but telling Austin and Carrie that you didn't sleep with Austin is the best thing for everybody. I'm so proud of you; that took serious guts. Abigail confesses that she didn't tell them the truth and she's decided that she's never going to. Mel snaps - You were supposed to tell Austin the truth. Abby knows. Mel - So what changed? Abby - Everything. Mel doesn't want to hear anything else. Austin and Carrie love each other and there's nothing you can do to change that. Abby - Carrie left Austin for Rafe. Yeah, and apparently she admitted to having feelings for him. Austin was a wreck about it but it's okay, I'll help him get through it. Mel - No. Abby - Listen to me. All this is happening for a reason. Carrie is supposed to be with Rafe and I'm supposed to be with Austin. It's like we're meant to be together. Mel - You might think this whole thing is meant to be but what about Austin? Has he mentioned to you that he's interested in being with you? Abby - Of course not. Not right now. He's still confused about what's happening to him. I mean his wife gave up on their marriage. Mel - But what happens when Austin finds out you two didn't sleep together? Abby - Nothing. I told you Austin will never find out because I will never tell him. Mel - You HAVE to tell him! Abby - No I don't. It doesn't matter; not now that Carrie is leaving him for another man. I'm not going to let one silly little thing come between us and neither are you. You're my best friend in the whole entire world. I've never asked you for anything but please do me this one favour - don't say anything to Austin. He can't ever find out the truth. Mel - I'm not going to tell Austin ... Abby - Thank you thank you thank you ... Mel - Because you are. Abby - No, no way. Mel - If you and Austin start a relationship this secret is going to hang over your head for the rest of your lives. And it's Salem and he's bound to find out and he'll never forgive you. But if you tell him now, who knows. Maybe he'll be totally understanding and you can start your new relationship secret free. Abby - Yeah, maybe you're right. Mel - Of course I'm right. Abby - Okay. I think you're right. I have to tell him. Mel - Yes you do. You should tell him tonight. Abby - Yeah.


Brady Pub - Part 1: Kayla asks Austin if he wants another beer. He passes; I make stupid mistakes when I've been drinking. Kayla offers him a water instead. Austin asks how Bo is doing. About the same. Kayla thanks him for his concern. She gets back to work just as Jack comes in and asks Austin if he's dining alone. He is. Jack asks if he can join him. Sure. They make small talk and then Jack asks - Where's the lovely wife? Austin - That kind of beats me. Jack asks if something is wrong. Austin - You could say that. My wife is falling in love with another man. Jack says that not too long ago he went through a similar situation with Jennifer. Austin knows. Jack - I'm here if you need anything. Austin - I really appreciate that. I really do. Jack gets that he wants to change the subject. He does want to ask Austin a question. it's about Abigail. Austin - So, what about Abigail? Jack - Ever since she broke up with this guy she refuses to name, she's been withdrawn; she hasn't been herself. Austin - What's that got to do with me? Jack - I know you two spend a lot of time together - more than she and I spend together. I know that you're her friend; maybe she talked to you. Austin is sorry. She hasn't said anything to me about it. Jack - It burns me up seeing her so upset over this loser. Austin really thinks she's going to be fine. She just needs a little bit of time to get over it. Jack - You know what makes me so crazy about this whole breakup thing. I see my little girl hurting and I know that the guy who did it to her is right under my nose; maybe in one of my classes. Maybe I wave hello to him when I walk across campus. If I ever find out who it is, I'm going to make sure he pays and pays for breaking my little girl's heart.


DiMera mansion - Part 1: EJ is working on a speech where he asks the citizens of Salem to see him as a friend; as man's best friend. Kate walks you - You mean a dog? EJ snaps - I can't write a speech. Kate reads it - This is bad; it's terrible. Did Johnny write this? She tells him he's capable of writing a brilliant speech; he just has to find the right words. What EJ needs is his PR person back. Kate suggests he go out and buy himself a blowup doll, spray it with cheap perfume and it will be just like Nicole never left. EJ is serious; I'm completely lost without her. Kate - I know that you miss Nicole but you need to get over this. EJ says it's not that simple. Kate thinks it is. You need to stop whining and get back to work; you have a city to run. EJ - Nicole has the spreadsheets; Nicole has the databases; Nicole has the action plan. Kate says okay we can talk about Nicole. Maybe talking about her will get her out of your system and you can start functioning like a normal human being. EJ can't help feeling bad. If he had told the truth and not lied to Nicole, none of this would have happened. Kate isn't going to go down the 'what if' road with him. You didn't tell her the truth and things just went forward and that's what you need to do. You need to concentrate on the things that are important to you like your career and your children. That's what needs your attention. EJ knows. Kate - It's not like you haven't been through this before. You survived just fine. EJ - I'm certainly not going to let this happen again. Kate asks if some good news would get him out if his funk. EJ - Depends on the news. Kate - Let's just say that in the not so distant future you're children are going to be spending a lot more time in this house. Which is another reason I need you to get your act together. I don't want Johnny and Sydney witnessing this little pity party you have going on. EJ - What are you talking about? Kate's said too much already. Just know that I'm working on it and when everything is worked out, past wrongs will be righted for you and for me. EJ - Whatever you're up to, stop it. I can't afford a scandal. Kate - I'm hurt. I thought you had faith in me. EJ - I don't have faith in anybody. I'm sure your intentions are wonderful but I can't afford to take the risk. Kate - No noble thing happens without the risk. EJ - Whatever it is you're trying to do, stop it. Kate - Well, if you insist. He does. He walks out of the room; Kate mutters - You'll thank me in the long run.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 1: Rafe cautions Nicole to take small sips from the glass of water he hands her. She assures him she's fine. He disagrees; you were just passed out cold. Nicole argues that she has morning sickness. I'm tired, I feel like crap - which is totally normal. Rafe was with Sami most of the time she was pregnant with Sydney and this is not normal. Nicole rebuts - Sami rocks at being pregnant; it's one of her only talents. People say if you feel really lousy that means the baby is sticking and that's all I care about. Rafe tells her she needs food and water. With the stress she's under, he's worried about her. Nicole - You don't even like me which definitely means you don't have to worry about me. Rafe - We'll see what Daniel says. Cue Daniel's knock on the door. Rafe let's him in. Nicole - A house call? Don't I feel special. Daniel takes it she's feeling better. She is. She gets out of bed and almost immediately collapses again. Dan says she's severely dehydrated. Rafe asks if they should get her to the hospital. Dan - No, she doesn't want EJ finding out she's pregnant. Rafe knows that but ... Dan has IV bottles with him, he'll adminster it right here. Rafe - Then she'll be okay? Dan hopes so. Nicole comes to and asks what happened. Dan tells her she was demonstrating how perfectly fine she was when she collapsed again. Nicole is sorry. Dan - Don't be sorry. The next time you feel this way you call me. Rafe - I told you. Nicole - Yes you did. Hopefully there won't be a next time. When I was pregnant last time I had morning sickness for 8 or 9 weeks. I should be better soon, right? Dan can't promise that; some women experience nausea for the whole 9 months. He tells her what she can do to help with that. If you continue to lose weight you will need to be hospitalized. Nicole promises she will eat and drink - she'll do whatever it takes. Dan says with her history they need to air on the side of caution. Nicole completely agrees. Dan - Which is why I insist that somebody stay with you here just to be on the safe side. Nicole - I don't have anyone. Rafe - I'll do it. Nicole - Really? Rafe - Yes, unless you don't want me too. Nicole - No, I just don't want to put you out. Rafe - Where else am I going to go? Nicole - Okay. Thank you. She then thanks Dan for everything. She will call him if she needs anything - she promises. Dan leaves. Nicole thinks they should start off the night with a good old fashioned pillow fight and then get in our jammies and talk about boys - what do you say? Rafe - Let's talk about EJ. Nicole groans. Rafe - Trust me, I can't stand the guy either but you really think keeping this pregnancy from him is the best way to go? Nicole - Yes. I think it's great and it's none of your business. Rafe - You're right, it's not my business but I think we both agree that right now the most important thing is what's best for your child. Nicole - Keeping my baby away from EJ is the best thing I could ever do. Rafe - Sami thought the same thing and we saw how that turned out. Kidnapping, custody battles ... is that what you really want for this baby?


Brady Pub - Part 2: Kayla brings Jack a beer and Austin more water. Jack asks how his big brother is doing. Kayla - He's good; working hard. Jack - He must miss you and Joey. Kayla - Of course he does but he understands I need to be here for my mom. How about you? Can I report anything back to him; any big news. Jack - Yeah, maybe there's something. I'm actually working on a book about my time in Afghanistan. I've been journalling while I'm in therapy and I got a lot of encouragement from Marlena. And I realised that there's a lot of people who deserve to have their story told. Kayla - If anyone can do it I'm sure it's you. She leaves to wait on another table. Austin - So when is the publication party? Jack isn't counting on any chickens yet but he should have some good news soon. Austin congratulates him. My contract says I have to publish 5 journal articles. I'm just getting used to the whole teaching thing but writing ... I don't know the first thing about it. I don't even know where to begin. Jack - If you need any ideas, come to me; I'll help you. Austin thanks him but you have so much on your plate. Jack - After everything you've done for Abigail, it's the least I can do.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 2: Nicole throws a pillow at Rafe - I thought you were on my side. Rafe isn't taking sides. I'm just asking you to think about what's best for the baby. Nicole - You don't think I know that? Rafe - I know you know that. I know that's all you're thinking about right now. Would you let me say one last thing and then I promise I will keep my opinions to myself. Fine. Rafe - What you're about to do right now is going to be really hard. Trust me, I know. I'm begging you to think about what Sami went through and ask yourself - Is it worth it? Sami suffered a lot. It was hard on everyone. Nicole - Are you still in love with her? Rafe - Despite what she did to me, yes, I still have feelings for her. They don't just go away. Nicole - Are you going to take her back. Rafe - No. Even if I could forgive her for cheating on me there's no way I could forgive the lies. Nicole - I know what you mean. I don't regret leaving EJ - it's the best thing I've ever done. Rafe - But? Nicole - But I still miss Johnny and Sydney and sometimes I think going back to him would be worth it just to have them in my life again like he promised I would. Rafe knows how she feels. Nicole - Sami is an idiot. Messing things up with you - you're a fricken' saint. Rafe - Whoa! To be fair it wasn't all her. Nicole scoffs. Rafe - What she did ... it was ... anyway, I kissed her sister. Nicole - You kissed Carrie? Good for you - giving Sami a taste of her own medicine. That's fantastic. Rafe - No, I did it before I found out she had cheated. Nicole - Oh. So is there something between you and Carrie? Are you in love with her too. Rafe - She's married. Nicole - You're worse off than I thought. You're in love with sisters, Brady sisters, you really are in trouble.


HTS: Dan and Mel hug. Mel is just so glad that she gets to see him finally. Same for Dan; things have been crazy since he got back. Mel asks if it's weird being back at the hospital without doing surgery. Dan says he still feels useful. He thinks he has put things in perspective; gotten his priorities straight - family, friends. Kate pipes up - Well isn't that nice. You go away on vacation and come back a whole new man. Mel decides to head home. Dan asks Kate what she wants. She doesn't want anything. She noticed him and decided to say hi and ask about Bo's condition. Dan - Since when do you care about Bo's condition? Kate - I don't but my daughter Billie does. Any updates would be appreciated. Dan is off duty now but he'll be checking on Bo soon. If there's any changes I'll let Billie know first. Kate - You've been spending a lot of time talking to Billie, haven't you? Dan - She's been spending a lot of time at the hospital. Kate - And at the spa. Dan - Where we ran into each other. Kate - Yeah, right. Don't let it happen again. Dan reminds her that they live in the same town. Kate - I don't care. You stay away from my daughter. Dan laughs. Kate - I wouldn't laugh if I were you. Dan - Do you think you can dictate who I talk to and where I talk to them? Can I dictate that you never come within a 100 ft of me ever? Kate - Things would be so much better if you had just stayed in Fiji or wherever it you went. What is it with you Daniel? First me, then Chelsea, then Billie. Are you trying to make a record of it - all three generations of Roberts women? Dan - You have no idea what you're talking about. Kate - I know your sickness. Dan - Paranoia is a sickness - maybe you should see a doctor about that - a witch doctor. He walks away.


Chad's Dorm Room - Part 2: Chad can see how much this modelling means to her. So he doesn't screw it up for her he promises to be as studly as possible. Gabi laughs - I don't think you have to try very hard. Chad gets a call from Melanie - he turns to take it. Mel asks if he's having a good evening. He is. Gabi came over to celebrate the publication of their first ad for Countess W. Mel can't wait to see it. Chad suggests a romantic date for tomorrow night; you bring the wine, I'll bring the magazine. Chad gushes about all the good things going on in his life. He tells Mel she's the best thing in his life right now and he's so happy he's with her. While he's setting up their date Gabi removes her earring and puts it under the covers in his bed. Chad tells Mel it doesn't matter where they go as long as he's with her.



Nicole's hotel room - Part 3: Nicole comes out of the bathroom. I'm in my jammies; are you ready for girl talk. Rafe thinks they've done enough talking for tonight. Get some rest. He dares her to go to sleep. Nicole - This is weird isn't it ... me and you getting along, sleeping in the same room. Rafe - Weird is an understatement. Nicole takes his hand - Thank you for doing this. I know we're not exactly friends. I do appreciate you sticking around. Rafe - Like I said, no trouble. Now get some rest; we need to get this baby strong and healthy. Nicole - Yes, this miracle baby - it's the best thing EJ's ever done for me. God, we could have had a really great life. I can't believe I went back to him. I'm so stupid. Rafe - You're not stupid, just human, that's all. Don't you worry, it's going to be okay. Rafe comes out of the bathroom and notices that Nicole is asleep. He drops a blanket on the floor next to the bed and removes his tee shirt just as EJ lets himself into the room. Rafe - What are you doing here? EJ - I should be asking you the same question. What the hell are you doing in bed with my wife? Nicole wakes up.


Brady Pub - Part 3: Abby walks in, sees Austin and makes a beeline to his table - we need to talk. Austin tells her he's having a drink with her father. Jack asks her what she's doing here. Is something wrong. Abby - Nothing, you just surprised me that's all. Jack - It's funny, we were just talking about you. What are you doing here? Abby - Actually I need to talk to Austin about some private work stuff so can you give us a couple of minutes alone. Jack - Trying to get rid of me, I see. Austin - We're off the clock. Work can wait. It can't be important. Kayla comes over. She just got a call from the hospital. The nurse thinks Bo is starting to come around. I think I should get over there right away. Jack asks if there is anything they can do. Kayla - I was wondering if someone here could watch the place and lock up for me. Jack will. Austin volunteers. Kayla hands the keys to Austin and tells Jack next time. She leaves. Jack - That's great news about Bo. Austin - Yeah. That's really great. I better get to work closing up. Good to see you. Austin is bussing tables - he tells Jack it's on the house. Jack comments to Abby that it looks like Austin is going to be busy the rest of the night. Abby - Yeah. Jack - You're really worried about this work thing, aren't you? Abby - It's okay. It can wait. I'll talk to him about it tomorrow. Jack asks if she wants a ride home. Sure. He goes to get the car. Abby stares at Austin and then leaves.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 4: Nicole demands to know how he got into her room. EJ got a key from the front desk. Rafe - What the hell are you doing? You can't just barge in here uninvited. EJ - I suppose you were invited, were you? He glares at Nicole - I knew you didn't like to keep your bed empty for very long. Nicole snaps - Look who's talking. Rafe - DiMera, I'm warning you. Get out of here ... NOW! EJ - Are you ready for another round - go ahead, be my guest. Rafe - You're way out of line. EJ - I'm out of line? You're the one who's in bed with my wife. Nicole - Wait a minute ... EJ - Do me a favour Nickie and shut up. Nicole snaps - How dare you break into my room and act like the victim after what you did to me! EJ - I knew you were a deviant little bitch but for some reason I actually believed that you fell in love with me. I suppose once you're a whore, you're always a whore. Rafe punches him. EJ wipes his bleeding mouth - You're going to regret that. Rafe - Bring it on DiMera. EJ - On second thought maybe I won't even bother. And you my dear, I knew that you had no dignity and no class so maybe you've done me a favour after all. EJ then tells Rafe to get himself checked out ... he leaves ... Nicole throws a glass of water against the door. You son of a bitch! She cries.


********************************************

Wednesday Mar 21

Brady Pub - Part 1: Marlena meets up with Lucas and Sami outside the pub. Marlena finishes a call to Will who was asking about Bo. Sami doesn't understand what's going on. First the hospital said he was getting better and then they had to put him in a medically induced coma. It seems like they don't know what the hell they are talking about. Marlena explains that in this kind of trauma maybe his body needs to rest to heal. The doctors are doing all they can for him. Sami mentions that 'it could be daddy'. Marlena understands. Sami - You didn't see them when they came into the pub covered in blood. It would be nice to feel safe again. Lucas comforts her.


HTS - Part 1: Jen looks at the dias and flag and tells Abe it should be him being sworn in as Mayor. You won the election fair and square; you did not rig this election. Abe - Unfortunately not very many people believe that. Jen promises him that they will prove he was set up. The people responsible will not get away with this. Abe looks around - It seems to me like they already have. EJ arrives with Kate.


Brady Pub - Part 2: Marlena hugs Kayla and asks about Caroline. Kayla notices that her mom has joined them - I thought you were going to rest. Caroline can't - her mind is racing. Everything was so hopeful last night and now it's ... Kayla knows it's an emotional rollercoaster and it's difficult for you to see Bo like that. But he would want you to take care of yourself. Caroline says they have to be strong for Bo and they have to pray. She thanks them all for coming. Marlena thinks it's wonderful to hold a special prayer mass for Bo. Lucas - We're all happy we could be here. Austin comes in and is surprised to see Lucas there. He hugs him - You didn't tell your big brother you were coming home. Lucas didn't tell anybody; it was all pretty last minute. Sami asks Austin if he's seen Carrie. No, why? Sami - No reason. She wasn't with the family at the hospital last night, of course neither was Rafe.


HTS - Part 2: Carrie is sitting on a bench when she notices Rafe. He asks her if she's here for the inauguration. No, who wants to see EJ being sworn in as mayor. Rafe - Not me. How's Bo. She went by the hospital earlier. They have no idea how long he'll be in the medically induced coma. She came here because she didn't want to go back to the hotel room and deal with Austin and all that. Rafe doesn't want to deal with Sami either. Carrie lets it be known that she could use a friend to kill some time with. Rafe - Is that what I am, a friend? Carrie - Do you have a better word for us? Rafe - No, I'm just not sure I'm the person you should be spending time with right now. It might make things worse. Carrie doesn't see how things could get much worse. Rafe asks if she's had breakfast yet. She's not hungry but she could go for a cup of coffee. Rafe doesn't see any harm in that.

Jen tells Abe she can't stay around and watch this. Abe understands. He's worried about John and Hope and he's worried about Bo. Lexie rushes up - I know you're worried. She tells him there's no change from last night. Abe is glad and grateful that she's here. Lexie - I'm not here for you. I'm here for EJ. Jen - Really? Supporting EJ? Abe - I understand that you're angry with me ... Lexie - Yes I am angry and disappointed but that's not the reason I'm doing this. Abe - You publically support your brother on the first day he replaces me ... what am I supposed to think. Lexie - Fine. Do you want to know why I'm here. EJ made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Kate tells EJ she knows that Stefano is very proud of him and wishes he could be here. This is everything he wanted for you. This isn't exactly how EJ envisioned today. Abe follows Lexie outside the gates and asks her what kind of offer EJ made her. Lexie - He offered me a position on his staff. Abe - And you said yes? What the hell were you thinking? Lexie - I was thinking that maybe as Health Commissioner I could make a difference. Abe didn't know. Sorry and I don't mean for just today. I'm sorry about all of this. Lexie knows he is. I told you I'm not ready to talk about this yet. Abe - For how long? Lexie doesn't know. Maybe forever, I don't know. She walks away. Kate tells EJ that he's about to become mayor, your father aside, to hell with Nicole, you should be on top of the world. EJ tells her she's right. She was a liability. I'm better off without her. Kate - Yes! You're carving out a new legacy for the DiMera family. Billie brings Sydney, Johnny and Allie who run up and hug EJ.


Madison's office: Ian comes in and greets Madison. She asks him what he's doing here. He brought her breakfast because she left so early this morning. He looks over at the folder she has in her hand - Now I can see why. That's very good. Having me around brings out the best in you. I'm very proud of you darling. Madison thinks it's pretty brave of him to try and feed her again after what happened last time. Ian trusts this food won't end up on this floor. I'm really proud of you. You have your vision back, your focus, your talent will turn Mad World into a very valuable asset for Titan not that I ever doubted it. Madison - All these compliments from you make me feel like I'm about to be set up. Ian is a little offended - can't he extend his very beautiful and talented wife compliments. Madison points out that they don't have a marriage. Ian - Maybe we should. The things you said to me last night really made an impression on me. I know I have not been the husband you wanted or deserved for quite some time. I would like to improve relations between us. She asks why. Ian - Because you're important to me. Madison - Important to your image maybe. Ian is sorry if he's upset her but he keeps thinking about the happy days back at the beginning. Madison - That was a long time ago. Ian knows. I have more than my fair share to make up; that's why I'm here. That's why I'm in Salem. That's why I took the CEO job at Titan; so I can be close to you. Madison - Really - You're here because of me. Ian - I'm in this town and I'm doing this job for you. I love you Madison. I want you to be happy. Madison - If that's true then I need you to prove it. Let me go. Let me be free to be with Brady. You want me to let you go so you can be with another man. How many times are we going to have this discussion? You understand perfectly well why that's not going to happen. Madison - I don't. You said that you love me. Ian - I love you very much that's why you can't ask me again. Do you hear me? She does. Ian - Good. Now get yourself cleaned up. We're going to the Mayor's inaugaration and I would like you to dress and act the part of the perfect wife.


Brady Pub - Part 3: Austin has been trying to reach Carrie too. Maybe her cell phone is off. Marlena - Why were you trying to reach her? Weren't you with her this morning. Rafe and Carrie walk into the pub. Carrie asks if something has happened to Uncle Bo. Caroline says there's no change. Marlena tells her they were trying to contact her because Caroline is holding a special mass for Bo. We were about to head to the church. Sami - Something you would have known if you had been with the family at the hospital last night. Marlena - Sami! Sami - I'm just pointing out that everyone was there except her and of course Rafe. That worked out great for both of you, didn't it? Rafe - Maybe I should go. Carrie - No, you didn't do anything wrong. I wasn't with Rafe last night Sami. Sami - Why should I believe that? You're a terrible liar. Marlena - Let's just all take a deep breath and calm ourselves down. Sami - You don't know what you're talking about. Marlena - What is going on here? Sami confronts Austin - I don't understand how you can stand to be in the same room as her right now. Austin - You don't know the whole story. Sami - What else is there to know? She and Rafe show up together first thing in the morning. I can do the math. Carrie snaps - I am not the one having an affair. Austin - Carrie, don't. Carrie - Don't what? You're the one who slept with someone else, not me. Sami - You cheated on Carrie? Lucas - No way. Marlena - This isn't the time or the place for this. Austin - I made a mistake alright. Sami - How did it happen? Carrie - You want to know Sami? He was drunk. Isn't that what you told me? Austin - Yes, that's what I told you because I was. And it's not an excuse. I swear to God I didn't mean for it to happen. But by the time I realised what Abigail and I had done ... Sami - Abigail? Abigail Devereaux? Lucas - You slept with my niece? Dude, what's the matter with you? Austin - You think I'm proud of it. I'm not proud of it but I'm not the only one that broke vows in this room. I don't have feelings for Abigail. I have only loved you Carrie, can you say the same? Go on, tell me. Rafe - Austin, come on ... not now. Austin - Shut up. That's my wife, stay out of it. He looks at Carrie - Go ahead, answer the question. You can't. So it's okay for you to come in here and embarass me in front of our family and friends but I've got to keep my mouth shut about walking in on you telling this son of a bitch that you've fallen in love with him.


HTS - Part 3: EJ sits with Johnny and Sydney. He tells them that today is all about their family. You're daddy is trying to build a better life for all of us so you can be proud of who you are and where you came from and who your daddy is. Johnny - Why? Because I love you two more than anything in the world. Everything I do, I do for you two - don't forget that.

Jen is shocked that they didn't ask Abe to stand on that stage during the ceremony. He was actually. Jen - You said no. Abe didn't want to give EJ a chance to create a spectacle at his expense. Jen says eventually he'll show his true colours; it's inevitable. And he will be responsible for his own downfall. Abe hopes Lexie isn't caught in the crossfire.


Brady Pub - Part 4: Sami to Lucas - Did you hear that? Carrie's falling in love with Rafe. Austin - Yeah, I heard her say it myself. Sami snaps - You are unbelievable ... Rafe - Let's not blow this all out of proportion. Sami - Excuse me, my sister falling in love with my husband ... I can't pretend like it's not happening. Carrie - Just give me a chance to explain. Sami - Explain what because I already gave you that chance. I asked you straight to your face and you lied to me you little slut. Marlena holds Sami back - That's enough. What is happening here? Your Uncle Bo is in the hospital fighting for his life. We're going to church to pray for him and all you can do is make it about yourselves. Yes, it is difficult right now but we don't stand here and hurl accusations at each other and we don't air our differences in public. That is not what a family does and we are a family, make no mistake. Sami - We're not. Marlena snaps - Don't you DARE speak. She talks about dignity and respect. This family is in trouble. This family is in pain. They need you all and you should all be ashamed of yourselves. Silence. Rafe goes over to Caroline and tells her that he's praying for Bo. I was proud to work for him and I'm looking forward to doing it again someday. Caroline thanks him. Rafe - As for everything else, sorry. Marlena - I appreciate the apology but it doesn't really do much good, does it? Kayla asks Carrie if she's okay. No. She never meant for any of this to happen. Kayla knows that. Carrie - You tried to warn me. It's just when Austin slept with Abigail ... Kayla - You can't blame her. She's a young girl; she can't be in the middle of your marital problems. Sami tells Austin she can't believe he cheated on Carrie. Lucas - And with Abigail, my niece. Come on, she's practically a kid. What were you thinking? Austin - I wasn't thinking. I was drinking. I made a mistake. I wish I could take it back but I can't. I'm pretty sure it cost me everything.


HTS - Part 4: EJ is sure his sister as Health Commissioner will be a dedicated advocate of the people. On a more serious note, on the last day of Mayor Carver's administration the police commissioner and a high ranking detective were brutally attacked while serving in the line of duty. Det. Brady is in hospital fighting for his life and we have compelling evidence that one of Salem's most notorious crime organizations, the Moroni family is responsible. Abe tells Jen they run a distant second to EJ and his old man. EJ - That kind of irresponsible governing is now over. As your mayor I vow to bring an end to the corruption in our town's government as well as the violence in the streets. Jen can't believe that EJ is making it sound like Abe is responsible for the attacks by the Moroni's. Abe says a lot of stuff to Jen while the 'crowd' is clapping - hard to hear - but the end result - whatever EJ is saying is to make Abe look bad.

Ian with Madison greets Kate as she's with the kids. Madison tells Ian these are Sami's kids when he asks Kate who the children are. Madison introduces herself to Billie - I don't believe we've met. I'm so sorry about what your mother's done to the company. Kate - There's no need to make apologies for me. Madison - You must be in some kind of trouble if you called Billie to help you out. Kate - That's because she's twice the executive and innovator that you are. Ian - Let's play nice ladies. Ian introduces himself to Billie. I look forward to a healthy competiton between your company and ours. Watching strong women do battle is one of my favourite specator sports especially when they're young and beautiful. Ian and Madison say goodbye and leave. After they walk away Billie says she doesn't seem so bad - too bad he's married though. I find him interesting not to mention very attractive. Kate - Stay away from him. I mean it. You said it yourself, he's an absolute womanizer and he's in bed with the competition. Billie - What's with you? It's just an observation. Kate - I mean it. I'm giving you a warning and I hope you heed it. She takes the kids to get some cocoa. Madison comes back and tells Billie she heard a lot of good things about her. Billie - Same here. Madison - Not from your mother. Billie - She's not a fan. Madison - The feeling is mutual. Billie - I'm not my mom and I have a feeling we have a lot in common like the way we started our business - a lot of heart and soul, a lot of help from friends. Madison - I just want you to know that whatever happens between us, it's not personal. Billie - All's fair in war and business. Madison - Not love. Billie hopes that's one area they aren't competing in. Madison - Amen to that. Ian goes over and introduces himself to EJ. EJ - Your reputation proceeds you. Ian - As does your. I just heard your speech. You're planning to make order out of chaos. EJ says they have to do what they can. It was a pleasure to meet you. Ian - Likewise. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful and productive friendship.


Brady Pub - Part 5: Lucas points out that Jack and Jennifer are going to go ballistic when they find out. Austin realises that. Sami asks how it happened. Austin - She works for me. Lucas knows; she's your student. Austin - She was there one night at the office when I showed up. It happened the night we caught Carrie and Rafe kissing. I was hurt, I was upset, I thought my marriage was over. Lucas - So what? You just jumped into bed with Abigail to make yourself feel better? Austin - I was drunk and I don't even remember it happening. Abigail had to tell me about it the next morning. It was humilating. Lucas - That kind of thing happens to you a lot. Austin - You're not back 5 minutes and you're already ... let's just get it out there. Sami drugged me ... we've been over this. Sami - Really, you have to bring that up? Just drink your coffee. She walks away. Lucas - This time you've got no one to blame but yourself. Sami asks Rafe if she can ask him something. He doesn't want to fight with her. Sami - It's not a fight. Carrie told you she's falling in love with you, are you falling in love with her? Rafe - You want to talk to me about love after what you did to me? To our family? With EJ. You don't deserve an answer. He walks out. Carrie leaves as well. Caroline asks Sami if she's alright. No. Caroline asks if she wants to talk about it. Sami - There's nothing to talk about. It doesn't matter what Rafe says, it's obvious that he's falling in love with her. So my sister has managed to ruin my life again. We're not going to talk about it now Grandma - she goes back to where Austin and Lucas are standing. Outside the pub Carrie tells Rafe she's sorry about all this. Rafe tells her it's not her fault. Carrie - We have to talk to them, Austin and Sami, it can't go on like this; it isn't right. Rafe agrees. We should. I don't know what to say. He looks through the window and sees Sami in Lucas's arms. Maybe there's no point, maybe she's already moved on. People told me Sami can't be trusted; she plays games with other people's lives but I defended her every chance that I got. Carrie - Because you loved her. Rafe - Yeah. People told me not to trust her though, she'll never change. Turns out they were right. Back inside Austin says that mom said Lucas is engaged. He is. Lucas shows him a picture of her on his phone - her name is Autumn. Austin tells him she's beautiful. He asks how Autumn feels about him leaving Hong Kong and coming here to hang out with your ex-wife. Lucas replies that Autumn knows about his history with Sami and my history with Nicole and my history with Carrie. We have an honest relationship; we don't keep secrets from each other. That's what makes it so special. She's nothing like anyone I've ever dated before. Austin - It sounds like you really lucked out. Lucas - I did and I know it. Sami is really happy for him; she sounds amazing. Kayla gets a call - it's the hospital. After the call she tells them Bo is stable - Carrie and Rafe come in and hear this. Caroline thinks they should all go to mass now. Marlena tells Sami she'd like to talk to her after mass. Sami can't - she has so much work to do - Kate's been all over me lately. Lucas - I wonder why. Sami - Stop it. Lucas will give her a ride if she wants - maybe take his mom to lunch. Sami tells him that his mom has taken the kids to EJ's swearing in ceremony. Lucas still can't believe he won that election. Sami doesn't think 'won' is the right word. Caroline tells Marlena it's really hard when everybody you love is suffering so much. Marlena knows - especially when you can't do much to help them except pray.


HTS - Part 5: EJ tells Lexie he needs her budget and agenda on his desk by the end of the week. Lexie - You don't waste time, do you? EJ - With due respect, the last 4 years were a waste of time. Lexie says that is not true. EJ feels it's time she started to see the truth about who Abraham really is. Lexie - What truth is that? EJ - He's an awful leader, he did nothing good for this town ... I know your instinct is to defend him ... Lexie - And yours is to tear him down. EJ - Not at all. He did that all by himself. He showed the people who he really is over the last couple of weeks. In fact, I'm glad he's out of your life. I can't wait for you to get shod of the guy. Lexie - Enough. You are talking about the father of my child. EJ says now she's going to have to work hard to set up something for Theo like he is for Johnny and Sydney. Abe tells Jen that EJ is working hard to convince Lexie not to have anything to do with him. Jen - It doesn't matter, Lexie's way too smart to fall for that. Abe - It seems to be happening.

Ian finds Kate alone - Your daughter is lovely; very much like you when we first met. Kate - You stay away from Billie. Ian - Or what? Kate - It's not a question of what. If you even look in her direction you'll regret it. By the way, when I finish with Sami for spying on me, I'm going to go after that bitch you call a wife because she is not going to get away with what she did to me. Ian - Nobody did anything to you. You are fine. You can do whatever you like to Sami, I could care less. But if you do so much as look at Madison, you will regret it. I take care of what's mine at all costs.

Abe confronts EJ - Leave Lexie out of it. EJ has no idea what he's talking about. Abe - If you're going to come after me then come after me but leave my wife out of it. EJ - You should take your own advice, I think this town and my sister would be a lot better without you in it. Abe - You son of a bitch ... Jen grabs him - Don't do this. He wants you to cause a scene. EJ tells her - I think if anyone should cause a scene it should be me. He waves an officer over - you know what to do. He puts cuffs on Abe as the cameras flash. My first act as Mayor is to order your arrest for ballot tampering. The cop calls Abe Mr. Mayor and tells him he's really sorry about this. Lexie asks EJ if this is really necessary. EJ is just keeping a promise he made before he was elected which is that he would keep the streets clean and get rid of corruption. Jen snaps - Abe is not corrupt. Jen tells Abe not to worry - she'll call Carrie to meet them down at the station. EJ - Officer would you please ... The cop takes Jen's phone away and places her in cuffs. Jen - You're arresting both of us - for what? EJ - You were an accomplice to the election fraud. Jen - How dare you? Abe and Jen are led through the square in cuffs with the media buzzing around.

********************************************

Thursday Mar 22

Alamainia - Part 1: John suggests that he try calling home when Hope can't get through. Hope tells him he won't get through. John tells her she's not giving up when Bo needs her the most. Hope - Exactly. Bo is in the hospital in critical condition and I can't get home to him. I can't even get a call through. I can't even tell him I love him. John is worried about Bo and Marlena too but they need to keep a level head or they're never going to get out. Hope thinks they should do what Stefano wants. John doesn't. Hope - He said he'd let us go if we cooperate. John - That's what he said - do you trust him? Hope - What choice do I have? I can't just sit around here while my husband is fighting for his life. John says they are going to take charge of the situation and this time they are going to get her home.

In his room Stefano is giving instructions. His guy understands what he is to do. Stefano warns him that when it comes to John and Hope the element of surprise is crucial. The guy replies - They won't see it coming. That's what Stefano is hoping for.

Hope wants to believe they'll get home as much as he does but Stefano has their passports ... John - What did I just say about not giving up? Hope - Okay? What's our latest plan of attack? How are we going to get home? John feels they need to figure out exactly what Stefano wants from them. Hope - This is such a nightmare. You do realise this is my fault. If I hadn't opened Gran's safety deposit box ... John - Just stop right there - no one knew what was in that box. Hope - Gran did. She knew that secret would destroy us which is why she hid it in the first place. John feels the truth would have come out eventually. Hope doesn't know. She just can't help thinking that if she hadn't opened that box, Bo would be safe not fighting for his life. John says that Stefano said he had nothing to do with that. Hope - Do you believe him? John wants to because if he is behind Bo's attack ... Hope - It's just a matter of time before he goes after Marlena.

Stefano is now on the phone - Are you sure you got in undetected? Remember what I told you and make it fast. It's almost time. Call me when the job is done.

John stares at a picture of Marlena - Sorry, baby. As he picks up his room service tray to set outside the door, he knocks the picture to the floor. As he's going back into his room, He is attacked from behind and injected with a drug. He tries to fight but ends up unconscious. Hope comes back and tries to run when she sees the guy but he grabs her and injects her as well.


HTS - Part 1: Austin is sitting on a bench when he sees Abigail. He gets up. There's something I want to talk to you about. Abby knows what he's going to say. Austin - No actually I don't think that you do. Abby - Yeah I do. You're going to say that I ruined your life, I ruined your marriage, that I never should have gone to the ski lodge and did what I did and you're right. I'm really sorry, I am. Austin - Want me to be honest with you? I was furious with you. I blamed you for the way that Carrie found out but the truth of the matter is I'm the one to blame. I should have told Carrie about our night together from the very beginning. I should have listened to you. What's done is done and that's not what I wanted to talk to you about. I just wanted to say that I'm sorry about what happened to your mom. Being arrested for ballot tampering is so ridiculous. Everyone in town knows that EJ set her up. Abby - Wow. Austin - You don't think EJ set her up? Abby - Of course I do, I can't believe how nice you're being to me after everything I did to you. Austin - What Abby? Abby - I told myself I shouldn't feel bad about this but I do. Austin - We both made mistakes, okay. And you know what, I made most of them. Abby - That's the thing, it was me. All of this is my fault. Austin - All your fault? No, I'm the one who let things get out of hand. You're so young. Abby - I'm old enough to know the difference between right and wrong. Austin - I'm the one that let our relationship get past a certain point. You were my student, you were my assistant but more importantly, you're a dear friend and I let one bad night ruin everything ... Abby - Stop. You have to stop. There's something you really need to hear about that night.


Brady Pub - Part 1: Jen and Jack walk up outside the pub. Jen asks what they are doing here. Jack feels she had such a rough day he thought she could use some Brady chowder. Jen tells him that is sweet but she has been in jail all day and all she really wants is a shower. Jack tells her she looks beautiful. Jen doesn't believe him. Jack okay - you smell. She protests. He asks her which she believes, you smell or you don't smell. Jen can't believe everything he's done for her today. You bail me out of jail, you make sure I get fed and you're just making everything feel a lot easier. Thank you for that. She hugs him. They are inside now. Jen says - That was good. You were right Jack, I feel better. Thank you again for everything. If you hadn't shown up who knows how long I'd have been sitting in that jail. Jack - I tried to get you out earlier. I was there in the morning but EJ did everything he could to make sure the bail hearing was held off til later. I guess his first act as Mayor is to make sure all the law abiding citizens stay off the streets of Salem. Jen wonders how long Abe is going to be sitting in there. We did not rig that election, you know that, right? Jack - You don't think that's what I'm thinking. Jen - We crossed the line and I feel bad because I feel like I pushed Abe to compete on EJ's terms. Now I feel like he's lost everything; his job, his reputation, his wife, his son and possibly his freedom. Jack - That's not going to happen. Jen - No it's not because I'm going to do everything I can to prove that EJ set us up. Jack - And I'm going to be right there with you every step of the way. Jen - No, no, no. I know that look and you are concocting a scheme. You need to stop it right now. Jack doesn't know what look she is referring to. Jen - The one on your face right now. It means you're planning something dangerous and irrational - that means watch out. Jack - I think you're referring to the old Jack, not the new Jack. The new Jack looks before he leaps. Jen - I appreciate your help. I want to get EJ as much as the next guy but I do not want you to get hurt in the process. Jack - I won't get hurt. I promise - cross my heart. Jen - When I was in that jail all day I thought about a lot of things. You know what I thought about? I thought about you because I was in there for one day and I had a lawyer, I had a cot, I had a hot breakfast and I knew that I was going to be going home soon enough. And then I thought about you in Afghanistan and I can't even imagine ... Jack - Don't ... Jen - I can't stop thinking about it because I wasn't there for you. Jack - You didn't know. Jen - No, I didn't but you needed me and I needed you today and you know what, you were there. Jack - I couldn't very well leave my ... the mother of my children rotting in jail. Jen - I think that I have spent a lot of time telling you how much you haven't been there for me and now I need to spend some time thanking you for being here for me. Jack protests but Jen says - I want to thank you - let me thank you. Thank you.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 1: Rafe hopes the lunch he brought her goes over better than the last time. How are you feeling? Nicole - Really, what's it to you? Rafe - I promised Daniel I would look after you so here am I. Do you want it or not? Nicole - Look, I really appreciate you staying here with me last night ... Rafe - Oh, is that what it is? EJ walking in on us when he did? Nicole - Okay, you know what, I don't care if EJ thinks that we're sleeping with each other. I don't care what he thinks at all; he just can't find out about this baby. Rafe - I promised you I wouldn't say anything. Nicole - Oh come on, no one is this nice to someone they hate just because so why the hell are you really here? Rafe - Alright, I get it. I've lied to you in the past. Nicole - Used me is more like it. Rafe - Use, really? Nicole - Yes. Rafe - You're right I did. I pretended to care for you to get what I needed from EJ and I'm sorry. But I would think last night showed you that I'm not here to manipulate you or hurt you. I'm just here to help. Nicole doesn't need a babysitter. If Rafe recalls correctly Daniel said she had to eat something or go back to the hospital. If it makes you nauseous I'll take it out of here. Nicole tells him he doesn't have to leave. I would blame my bitchiness on my hormones but you probably think I'm always this way. Rafe smiles - Not always. Shouldn't you be resting. Nicole - Yes. I'm sorry. You don't deserve my paranoia. You have been, dare I say, a great friend lately. Rafe - Don't worry about it. Nicole - It's just when you're lied to by the people you love the most it's really hard to trust anyone. Rafe - Yeah, tell me about it. Nicole - And now EJ thinks we're sleeping with each other. They both laugh. Nicole - Oh my. Be warned sir because all hell is about to break loose. Rafe is ready. Nicole - What about when Sami finds out. Rafe - My life is not her business, not anymore. Nicole - Wow, Sami Brady, completely shut off from the man she loves. It is hard to believe but I think she's gotten exactly what she deserves. Rafe doesn't want to talk about Sami. Nicole - Why, it's so much fun. Rafe points out that her soup is getting cold. Nicole is actually a little hungry. What is it? Rafe - Chicken noodle. As soon as she gets close she starts feeling nauseous. Rafe - Okay, it's gone but it's obvious your morning sickness is not. Nicole thought she was feeling so much better. Rafe - How can I help? Nicole suggests getting out of here - she needs some fresh air. You don't really have to come with me. Rafe - Are you trying to get rid of me again? Nicole - No, I'd like the chance to repay a favour. I know what you're going through and I know it's not easy so if you do want to talk, I'm here. Rafe - Thanks.


CW office - Part 1: Sami rushes in and says 'I'm here. Where's the fire?' Kate - What a surprise, you're late. Sami tells her she was at a mass for Uncle Bo with her family - everyone was staring at her because Kate texted her at least 6 times. Kate - I would think you're used to that. Hopefully you said a few prayers for yourself. Sami - Why? Kate - You're going to need them. Sami - Am I sensing some sort of ... Kate - Hostility? Is that the word you were looking for. Yes, why, what have I done. Kate - You've been keeping secrets and I know what they are. Sami pretends she doesn't know what Kate is talking about - I know better than to keep secrets from you. Kate would have thought she would have. You know what I'm going to say, don't you? Cue flashback of Kate asking Sami to find the mole. Sami has no idea - she stands up. Kate barks - Sit down. See this folder. Sami isn't blind. Kate - I would keep the sarcasm to myself if I were you because there's enough proof in this folder to blow you out of the water. Sami - A lot's been said but I still don't understand what you're talking about. Have I done something wrong because if I have, I'll fix it. Kate doesn't think this is something she can fix. Sami - Is this about Chicago? Because I told you right from the beginning I didn't think Garcia was serious and he's not and he's not right for this company. Kate - And you know all about the company, don't you? Sami - Well it's my job and if I may say, I'm damn good at it. Kate - That's true. You are an asset to the company because you're smart and you take the iniative. There's just one little problem - you're a liar.


HTS - Part 2: Austin - If it's alright with you I'd rather not talk about that night. Abby tries to say something but Austin stops her. I think that we should probably not see each other for a while. That way we can come to terms with what happened and we'll both move on with our lives. Okay. He turns to leave. Abby - Please don't go. I need to tell you about the night we made love. Jack and Jen walk up at just that moment. Jen - What? The night you did what? Jack - Please tell me I heard you wrong. Please tell me that I did not hear that the two of you ... Abby - It's not what you think Dad. Jack - Oh. It was just a joke, right? The two of you are just playing a joke on your ma and dad. Austin - Jack, Jen, I'm so sorry that you had to find out this way. What you heard is the truth. Jack - No, no - you bastard you ... Jen has to hold Jack back. Jack points his finger at Austin and yells - You sat there and you drank beer and you talked to me about your troubles with Carrie. And I asked you about Abigail as a concerned father. Abby - Dad ... Jack yells - NO! He turns back to Austin. I asked you and you sat there and said nothing, nothing! And all the time you knew that you were the reason - you broke her heart. Austin - Jack, I should have told you the truth. I just didn't want anyone to get hurt. Jack yells - You hurt Abigail. Austin - I know. Jack - And you ... you took advantage of a student, you took advantage of someone who looked up to you - Abigail looked up to you. Abigails screams - Stop. STOP! Look at me. I understand that you are upset Dad but this thing with Austin was my choice. I'm an adult and it is my life so I would really appreciate it if both of you would just leave me alone. Jen - We are not leaving you alone. We are staying right here. Austin - Abigail, Jack, Jen, please, we need to talk about this. It's time that I take responsibilty for what I've done.


Brady Pub - Part 2: Nicole is chowing down on a burger. Rafe - Fresh air really helped huh? Nicole - It's unbelievable how much better I feel. She holds out her burger - Want some? Rafe is good. Anything else you want to share - we could talk about EJ. Nicole - You've gone and done it. You ruined a perfectly delicious meal. Rafe is sorry. I just thought after what happened last night that you'd want to share some of those feelings. Nicole - I have some feelings alright. Anger, hurt, frustation, humilation - none of which I want to talk about. Rafe - Are you sure? It's not good for the baby to keep that all bottled up inside. Nicole - Trust me, it's not bottled up. It comes out with my morning sickness all day long. Just because I don't want to share doesn't mean you can't. Sami cheated on you. She hid it from you for months. How does that make you feel? Rafe - What's there to say? She's not the person I thought she was. Everyone warned me not to trust her but I didn't listen so I got burned. Nicole - Yeah, what the hell were you thinking? Rafe - I wasn't. I was in love. Nicole - But you understand now, right, that she's never going to change. She's who she is - she's her own worse enemy. So you fell for Sami Brady, don't sweat it. There are many, many, many, many guys that have gone down that same road and they all turned out the same way. Rafe - Hurt and confused? Nicole - Drunk. But look at you - you're sober - you're so much better off than those other guys. If it makes you feel any better I fell for the same act. EJ told me he changed AGAIN and like the dummy I am I gobbled it up. Rafe - You're not a dummy. Nicole - I feel like it. Just for once I wish I was that girl who could have the right guy for the right reasons. I just want a man who is trustworthy and caring and most importantly I want a man who will be a good father to my baby. Rafe - He's out there. Nicole - Once upon a time I did believe that was true but it's time for me to get over that dream. Rafe - Since when does Nicole Walker sell herself short or give up on anything? Nicole - There's a lot of things I wish I did give up on. For example, EJ. Now I'm pregnant. I'm done with bad boys forever and the good guys, why would they want someone like me? Rafe - Are you serious? Do not sell yourself short. Nicole - What about you? Has Sami turned you completely off love or you hoping she's way out there somewhere. Rafe - Way ... They laugh. Rafe - I don't know. Nicole - Just for the record, if there is anyone that deserves to be happy it's you.


CW office - Part 2: Sami states that she hasn't lied about anything. Kate - Now you and I both know that's not true. She reminds Sami that she said she was going to find the mole - you haven't done that yet. Sami protests - I'm not a detective. I'm doing the best I can. Kate - You're lying. You haven't lifted a finger. Sami says that is not true. I've done a lot. I just need more time. Kate - That's not going to happen. You've run out of time. Sami reminds her that she asked for her workload to be reduced so she could concentrate on this mole thing but she refused. Just give me a couple of more days. Kate - Do you know what a spy could do with a couple of more days. No, I want answers, and I want them now. Sami will tell her what she knows. Kate - So you do know something. I thought so. Tell me - who's the mole. Sami doesn't know exactly. Kate - Then it's one person, not a group. Sami - I didn't say that. Kate - No, you're not saying much of anything. I'm getting fed up with that. Sami - They work for our competition. Kate - Well obviously. Just spit it out. Oh unless it's someone you know. Is it someone who works for Mad World. Sami - No. Kate - I don't believe you. I think you're protecting someone. Who's that Sami?


Alamainia - Part 2: John comes to first. It looks like they're in a cell in a basement. He gets Hope to wake up. John thinks they got attacked. Hope looks around - Where are we? John has no idea but don't worry, we'll get out of here. Stefano appears on short circuit TV. I apologise for the commotion in your hotel room earlier but you seem to be determined to make this as difficult as possible. John - Why don't you just tell us what you want? Stefano hopes their accomodations are comfortable. Hope wants to know why they're here. Stefano - I have a proposition and as long as you cooperate nobody gets hurt. John - I thought we made ourselves clear. We're not playing any of your games Stefano. Stefano - But you are my two favourite player. They try to leave but the guy who attacked them steps in. Stefano - Did you honestly think I would make it that easy. Now if I were you I would pay attention and listen because Martin has impeccable aim. You know I train only the best. John - I know and I could take out your Martin before you even say fire. Stefano is well aware of his capabilities - after all I did create you my pawn. The two of you are quite the team. Hope tells him to save himself the trouble and let them go. Stefano - Go, run. You're not going to get very far. You are miles and miles away from civilization. Stefano - This could have all been avoided but since you've arrived in Alamainia you've been nothing but uncooperative. You've let me no choice. Hope - You have our attention. Now tell us what you want us to do. Stefano - What I want from you is very simple. As I told you I need your help with a special project and that's it. Hope - Nothing's ever simple with you Stefano. John - What's the catch? Stefano - No catch. I will spell out all of my terms up front. Either you assist me or ... John - Or what? Stefano - Guess. Of course Bo and Marlena will think you chose to stay on your loving honeymoon forever. Hope - We're not doing it. We'll never help you again. Stefano - That's too bad. I was hoping that it would not come to this. He calls for Martin ... if you please. Martin raises his gun.


HTS - Part 3: Austin - Jack, Jen, I am so sorry. If I could take this back I would. Carrie and I were having problems and one night I was drinking and ... Jack - And you used my daughter. Abby - No. He said he's sorry Dad. Jack - Sorry? I'm going to make him so sorry ... Abby - Stop please. Jen rounds on Austin - Are you kidding me? What kind of man are you? You have known our daughter since the day she was born. You have been my dear friend and my co-worker. My god, you donated bone marrow to save her life. Do you know how disgusting this is! I feel sick right now ... sick. Austin - I don't know what to say. Jen snaps - You have nothing to say. You had your chance to talk. I thought you were a good man but you're not even a man and I'm going to make sure the dean and others at Salem University know they have a professor who has a horrible lack of judgement. And you will not work there anymore. Abby - No, Mom, stop ... you ... Austin stops her and tells Jen - You're absolutely right. Abby - No, they are not right. No. You guys both want to yell at someone so desperately then yell at me because it's my fault. I am the one who messed up here, not Austin. Everyone needs to stop blaming Austin and start blaming me. Austin - Abigail, would you please stop saying that. Abby - No Austin. Stop, stop please. You don't understand. All of this is my fault. Jen - Honey, don't ... Abby - Mom, stop. Mom, listen to me. I need to say this. Jen - Okay, say what you have to say. Abby looks at Austin - Austin, we didn't have sex. Austin - What are you talking about? Abby - The truth is, I made it all up.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 2: Nicole comments that Rafe was awfully quiet on their walk back. Rafe has a lot of stuff on his mind. Nicole - Stuff? Were you thinking about her? Rafe wasn't thinking about Sami. Nicole - Not her, Miss Right. You know a certain little lady whose name starts with C and rhymes with Mary. Rafe - I wasn't thinking about Carrie. I was thinking that you need to get off of these feet. Nicole - Okay, I'll drop it just this once. Rafe - There's nothing to drop. Nicole - Thank you for everything. Rafe - You're welcome. I'm glad to see you feeling better. I should get going - get some rest. Nicole - I will. I just want you to know that you are a really great guy. You are smart and you're funny and you're going to be just fine. Rafe - So are you. In the mean time call me if you need anything. She tells him he's on speed dial. He leaves. She cradles her stomach with her hand and sighs.


CW office - Part 3: Sami - It's no secret that Madison doesn't like you. I know her ... Kate - Yeah you do know her. The two of you were quite close at one time. Sami - We were but it didn't end that way. You saw all ... Kate - Yes, I witnessed that. It was quiet convenient - it was almost if I was meant to see it. Sami - What are you talking about? Kate - I know. I've always known. You are caught you deceitful witch. You were going to try and ruin and now I'm going to ruin you.

*************************************************

Friday Mar 23

Alamainia - Part 1: John looks at the guy with the gun - Stefano, you know we're not done here. Stefano barks - I told you to take care of them now. John - Stop it. We both know you're not going to kill anybody. You kill us, you destroy your only chance at getting whatever it is you're after here. You need us and you need us alive. Stefano was hoping that they could do this the easy way without him having to resort to more persuasive measures. Such a shame, now all Bo's pain and suffering will be in vain. Hope - What did you say? Stefano thinks she heard him. Hope - You swore you weren't responsible for Bo's attack. Stefano laughs - And you believed me? Hope - Why? Stefano - To send you both a message. Help me or suffer the consequences. Hope - Bastard. Stefano - Fine, have it your way but do not say that you were not warned.


Coffeehouse - Part 1: Sonny is glad Will finally made it here. Will would have made it to the opening but his car battery died. Sonny - Really? In your new ride. Will - Yeah, it sucked. The place looks great. Sonny's been trying to tell him that since they opened. Sonny starts twirling his towel - If I find out you've been giving business to our competitors ... Will smiles - Put that away, I wouldn't do that. Sonny - You better not because I've been saving something for you. He shows him a 'free coffee for life' card - this is for exclusive, loyal customers only. Sonny waves it in front of his face and then pulls it away - I don't know if you deserve it now. Will will take it - he tries to take it away from Sonny who is holding it behind his back. The mock fight stops and they stare at each other (Will kind of has his arm around Sonny) just as Lucas walks in. Sonny then holds out the card - If you want it that badly you can have it. I'm working, I shouldn't be messing around. Sonny greets Lucas. Lucas tells Sonny the place looks great. You should be proud of what you've accomplished. Sonny is. He asks Lucas if he wants anything. He's fine. Sonny has to get back to work. Lucas asks Will if he can talk to him for a second. Yeah sure. Lucas suggests sitting down as this may be a little awkward. When I walked in and noticed you and Sonny fooling around like that ... I know there's nothing to do it - that it didn't mean anything but you know if someone else saw what I saw, they might get the wrong idea. Will - About what? Lucas - About you, come on Will.


CW office - Part 1: Sami's reaction to being outed as the mole - That's insane! Kate doesn't think so. Would you like to see the evidence? Sami insists there can't be evidence. I know I didn't find the person soon enough ... Kate raises her voice - Just stop. I know it was you. I've always known it was you and I just let you twist in the wind because it was so much fun to watch. But now the fun is over. You should have seen your face when you were promising to find the mole for me. I knew you were a world class liar but I never thought you'd be this stupid. (Audio was wonky here) Kate - It was an act, wasn't it. Sami - In the beginning yes. Kate - Finally an admission of guilt. Sami - You don't know the whole story. Kate - I know that you came to spy on me for Madison, what else do I need to know. Sami - That it was Madison's idea. She cooked up this entire scheme. Kate believes that because Madison is desperate and she's second rate. That is something you two have in common. Sami - I quit working for Madison months ago. Kate - Really? Why? Sami - Because I like working here. I like being part of your team. Kate - You sold me out. Sami - I have been completely loyal to you since I stopped working for Madison, I swear. Think about all those nights I gave up being with my kids, I skipped recitals and family dinners and bedtime stories so I could work for you. Doesn't that tell you how much I want this job. Kate - All that tells me is that you're as loyal a mother as you are an employee. Sami - Come on, you know I'm on your side. You have to believe that.


Rafe's loft - Part 1: Rafe lets himself in and looks around. He picks up a family picture as Marlena walks in. You miss it don't you. You miss her. It's okay to miss her. Rafe - Of course I miss her. I walk in here and I'm reminded of what we had, what we lost. So can I either spend the rest of my life regretting it or find a way to move forward. Marlena - Are you really ready for that? It won't be easy. Could you consider forgiving Sami for what she did? Rafe - What she did was tear this family apart. Marlena knows that. I'm not defending her but she loves you so much; she loves you more than anything in the world. Rafe - More than she loves herself? I didn't want this for us. I thought what we had was solid. I would have fought through anything for her - hell, I did. At some point you've got to stop fighting and protect yourself.


HTS - Part 1: Austin looks at Abby - What did you just say? Abigail - I'm sorry. Austin - You're sorry? Jen - Maybe this isn't the best time to have this conversation. Austin - No, Jen. I'm not going anywhere until I get some answers. Carrie stands in the background. Abby starts to cry - This is the worse thing I've ever done in my entire life. I made it up - all of it. We never slept together. I just let you think that we had. Carrie walks up - What's going on? Abby - I'm doing something I should have done a long time ago. Carrie - Which is what exactly? Abby - Telling the truth. Carrie - I thought you already did that when you admitted that you slept with my husband now you're saying you didn't sleep with him. Which truth are we supposed to believe? Jack - Carrie asked you a question Abigail. Please answer her. Abby - What I told you that night at the lodge was a lie. Carrie - Which part? Abby - All of it. We're not in love. We're not supposed to be together. I made it all up - all of it. I made it all up in my head - none of it is real. None of it. Jen - You're saying that you and Austin never ... Abby - No never. Jack - So what the hell did happen? Abby - I came to the office that night. We did kiss but that was only because he was really drunk and you two had had that terrible fight about Rafe. And that is why he kissed me, not because he wanted to. It didn't even go any further than that. I swear because he ... he ... Jen - What? Abby - He passed out. Jen - Why didn't you leave? Abby - Because I didn't want to mom, okay? Austin, when you woke up that next morning and I was there, you just assumed because the last thing you remembered was us kissing that we had had ... and I didn't want to tell you that you were wrong. You all have to stop blaming Austin, please. None of this is his fault. Jen - Sweetie, listen to me. If you are lying to protect Austin that is not going to help anyone. What if this happens with another student? Abby - No! He would never do that. OMG, none of you believe me. Carrie, you have to believe me. I'm telling you the truth, I swear. Austin - Why ... I mean why are you telling us this now? Abby - Because I felt too horrible. I couldn't do it anymore. Carrie - Really? You came to me, remember? Grabbed my shoulder, told me about the guy you supposedly slept with. Here's what I want to know. Were you sorry when you asked me what you should do? How you could get this guy to pay more attention to you? I mean you were basically asking me how you could steal my husband. Abby - I know what you probably think about me ... Carrie - No sweetheart, you don't. Abby - Austin is still the amazing man that you fell in love with and he always has been.


CW office - Part 2: Kate - I'm supposed to believe that you didn't destroy me and my company because you like it here? Sami gets it. You're angry, you have every right to be. And I would be too given our history but that's just it, don't you see? Kate - What am I missing? Sami - I had the chance to bring Countess W, to bring you down and I didn't. I chose not to. I chose to come and work for you instead of Madison. Kate - That might have been the smartest decision you made in this whole mess but I don't think it's enough to keep you out of prison. Sami - What? You called the police? Kate - No, I haven't yet. I still have decided when I'm going to do that. You're going to have to keep looking over your shoulder wondering when I'm going to lower the boom. Believe me, it will happen. Sami - Don't do this. You know I'm a good employee. You said yourself that I'm an asset to this company. Kate - I think you have a lot more to worry about than your employment here because not only am I going after your freedom, I'm going after your life. Sami - What are you talking about? Kate - What I'm saying is go home and hold your children tight because pretty soon you won't be able to do that.


HTS - Part 2: Abby asks her parents for a couple of minutes alone with Carrie and Austin. Jack - No way in hell. Jen - We're not going to leave you alone. We'll be right here okay. Abby goes to Austin and Carrie. I know that you think that I'm a liar Carrie, and I did lie but I'm not lying now. Austin, he's an incredible man. He's a good guy and I think there's a part of me that knew I never had a chance with him and that is why I let him believe that we slept together. Because I wanted so badly for him to have the same feelings that I did. He never did. He couldn't Carrie because of you. You are the woman that he loves. I know that I messed up. I know that I hurt a lot of people and I'm trying to fix this; not for my sake but Austin's because he doesn't deserve this. He didn't do anything wrong Carrie. You have to believe me. Carrie - I do, I really do. You bitch! - She slap's Abigail. Abby cries.


Rafe's loft - Part 2: Sami comes in and finds Rafe sitting on the couch. What are you doing here? Rafe apologises, he probably should have called first. Sami tells him it's his house too, he doesn't have to call. Rafe - We need to talk. Sami - If it's about the kid's schedule for next week I'm working on it. Rafe - No. It's about us. We have some decisions to make. Sami - We can talk. It's been a long time since we've had a real conversation. Rafe - I'll say. Maybe if we'd had a few more of those we wouldn't be where we are now. Sami - And where is that exactly? Rafe - Things aren't the same; haven't been the same in a long time. Sami - The way you're talking, you make it sound like you've already made up your mind. Rafe - I can't do this anymore. Sami - Are you saying you don't want to be married to me? You can't even answer - you can't even say the words which means we still have a chance. Rafe - No. That's it. It's over. We're over. Sami - Okay, you wanted to talk so let's talk. Rafe - Talking isn't going to change things. Sami - I get it. I understand that you are still hurt. Rafe - This isn't about being hurt, it's about what's broken - us. Sami - I made one mistake, a huge, horrible, terrible mistake but just one. Rafe - You're not listening. Sami - We all made mistakes here. Rafe - Listen to what I am saying. Listen. I can't get past this, I can't. You slept with the man who tried to destroy our family. After everything he did to you, to me and to the kids. I kept wondering what the hell is wrong with her - I just didn't get it. And then I figured it out, it's you. That is who you are. I can not live with that person anymore. Sami - I'm still the same person you fell in love with. Rafe - That person that I thought you were is nothing but a lie. Sami - How can you say that? Rafe - You don't think about what you're doing, you don't think about the consequences. As long as it's okay with Sami then it doesn't matter, nothing else matters. Sami - Okay fine. I'm not perfect, not like you. I have major, MAJOR flaws. I get that. But I know you love me and you don't just get to turn that off. Rafe - Maybe I can't but you sure as hell did when you slept with EJ.


Alamainia - Part 2: Hope accuses Stefano of hiding behind that screen - she calls him a coward. You knew if you were to tell me that you were the one responsible for Bo's attack we wouldn't be having this conversation because you'd be a dead man. Stefano - Are you through with your theatrics? John tells him to spit it out - just tell us your terms. Stefano - You know John, on rare occasions you can be quite perceptive. You were right, I do need you, both of you. Hope - Why would we ever help you after what you did to Bo? John - Because he isn't going to stop until we give him what he needs. Stefano would hate to have to engage in these drastic measures again but I will as much as it pains me to do it. John - Not that perceptive so what are you talking about. Stefano - I think you know. He holds up a picture of Marlena. John - This is between you and me, Marlena is an innocent victim. Stefano - Than you would be wise to start co-operating otherwise ... John - You wouldn't hurt her, not the way you feel about her. Stefano - These are not empty threats, I assure you. He brings up a screen that shows Marlena sitting at a table in the square. John - You lousy son of a bitch, stay away from her.


Coffeehouse - Part 2: Will - Why would people get the wrong idea about me? Lucas - I'm just going off what I saw when I walked in. Will - It was nothing. Lucas - I just need you to know that there are some people out there who jump to the wrong conclusions. I know you're straight but there was something about the way Sonny was looking at you. Will laughs - Really dad come on. Lucas - I'm not saying this to upset you. Will - I'm not, I just think you're overreacting. Sonny is not an axe-murderer, he's just gay and he's a great guy. Kate walks in and hears this. Lucas - I have no problem with Sonny or anyone else who is gay. Will - That's big of you. Lucas - I'm just saying that if you choose to make it public you know you're going to risk being treated like a second class citizen by a lot of people. Will - WOW, you sound exactly like Grandpa Roman. Lucas - I'll stop right there, I don't want to sound like Grandpa Roman. Hey, it's 2012, we probably shouldn't be having this conversation anyway. It's just that I care about you and I don't want to see you get hurt. Kate chooses this moment to make her presence known. Will excuses himself to get himself a drink. Kate asks if he's fine. Lucas says he is. Kate asks if he has his phone on him. He does. Kate - Do me a favour. If it rings, don't answer it because there's a chance it will be Sami in a tizzy calling you. Lucas - Good to know. What did you do to her this time? Kate - Not this time, this is all on her. I found out she is the mole in my company. Not that I'm surprised - deceitful witch. Lucas asks her how she found it. Kate - Because she wasn't smart enough to bring the whole scheme to successful fruition. Lucas - So you confronted her about this? Kate - I did more than confront her. I warned her to enjoy her time before she goes to prison. Lucas - Are you serious about that? Kate - Yes! Of course I'm serious. She tried to ruin my life; she tried to ruin my company. Lucas - And you're surprised about that? I mean you had her give up Madison's secrets, right? I think you've been paid back in full - I think it's even. Kate - So are you defending her now? Lucas - No. I'm just saying that if you accuse her like that ... Kate - What kind of hold does this woman have on you? Lucas - She is the mother of my children, what do you think? Kate - I've warned her. I'm going to get custody of those children away from her. Lucas - You know, this is exactly why I didn't tell you about his. Tell Will I had to go because of you.


HTS - Part 3: Jack rushes over - Keep your hands off my daughter. Carrie - You're daughter is a pathological liar. Jen - What do you think you're doing? Carrie - What am I doing? What about what she did? Jen - I'm sorry. If I had known this was going on but I didn't know, none of us did. If we knew that it was Austin that Abigail was ... Carrie - Obsessed with, because that's what it was. It was a sick obsession and her lies tore my marriage apart. Jen - I know that and she owned up to it. She said she was sorry. Carrie - And that's supposed to make it all better? Jen - Does assaulting her make you feel better? Carrie - Yes, it does. Jen - Really Carrie? Carrie - No. Jack - Look we're all adults here. I think we can talk this out. Carrie - You're right. She's an adult, not a naïve kid, which makes her accountable for what she did. Abby - I know, Carrie. That is why I'm trying to fix it. I will do whatever I can to make it up to you, I promise. Austin - Abigail, how could you? We were friends. I never treated you like an assistant, I never treated you like a student ... Abby - I know. Austin - No, no, no. Maybe that's my fault because I should have drawn clear boundaries. But I thought I could trust you. When you care for somebody you don't, you do not turn their life into a train wreck. Abby - I know. I know. That is why I am trying to make this right. How can I make this right? Please tell me. Austin - Make this right? Do you have any idea what your lies have cost me? Carrie walks away when Austin looks at her.


Rafe's loft - Part 3: Rafe - You carried this damn lie around for months hoping that it would go away, that you'd never have to answer for it. I knew it. I knew you were keeping something from me. I asked you so many damn times, just tell me the truth but you wouldn't tell me. Sami - I didn't know how. Rafe - Instead you blamed me for everything, you pushed me away. Sami - I felt so guilty for what I had done. Rafe - Why couldn't you just tell me the truth? Maybe we could have saved our marriage. Sami - Maybe we still can. Maybe you're just too angry right now to see it. Rafe - Unfortunately this has nothing to do with me being angry. Sami - Rafe, this is everything to do with you. Nobody knows better than me what happens when you act in the heat of the moment and then the next day you regret the choices you made. I'm just asking you not to make the same mistake I did. I'm asking you not to throw away our family, everything we have, without thinking it through. Rafe - I don't know how to get through to you. I'm not going to wake up tomorrow or the day after that or anytime thereafter wishing that I had changed my mind about you. Sami - What am I supposed to do? Rafe - You should stay here with the kids, it's their place. They've already lost me, there's no need for them to lose their home too. Sami - This isn't a home without you Rafe. They miss you. Rafe - Maybe you should have thought about that before you did what you did. He goes to the door. Sami - So that's it. No goodbye, no nothin'. Rafe - There's nothing left to say. Sami - I love you and I know you love me. Rafe - You should get a lawyer, file papers so you don't have to be served. Sami - What would you like me to say to the children? Rafe - I'll talk to them. They'll always be a part of my life. Don't drag it out, file the papers.


Coffeehouse - Part 3: Kate walks over and asks Will if she can join him. He asks where his dad went. Kate tells him something came up that he felt it warranted his immediate attention. I think he'll be back when he finds out it's a waste of time. But I don't think you're too upset that he left when he did. Will - Why? Kate - Some of the things he was saying about Sonny; kind of hitting close to home. Will - In the sense that I didn't like the things that Dad was saying about Sonny, that's all. Kate - Yeah, because he was talking about Sonny, right? Will nods yes. Kate - The thing is, I think that he could have just as easily been talking about you. Am I wrong here? That's what made you so uncomfortable. Don't worry, you're secret's safe with me.


Alamainia - Part 3: John - I swear that if you so much as lay a hand on her I will spend the rest of my life making you pay. Stefano - Me, I would never lay a hand on my Queen of the Night but I can't say the same about that man, the one coming up behind her now. John watches as the man approaches Marlena holding up a rose. I found this on the ground back there, is it yours? Marlena says no. The man says - Then it should be it's as beautiful as you are. John mutters - Get away from him Doc. Marlena tells the man he's very kind but as she said, it's not hers - and I'm very happily married. He replies - Your husband is a very lucky man. Marlena - That's funny, because I think I'm the lucky one. Stefano - Marlena doesn't even know that she's in danger and she won't until it's too late. John watches as the man comes up on Marlena from behind.


HTS - Part 4: Jen promises Abby that it's going to be okay. Abby - No it's not going to be okay. Everyone is going to know what I did. Everyone is going to find out that I lied and broke up Carrie's and Austin's marriage. Jack - Yes, they will and you're going to have to deal with that. Jen - Jack, she knows that. Jack - I hope so.


Carrie's office: Carrie lets herself in - she's crying. Austin comes in. Carrie didn't expect him to follow her. Austin thinks she knew that he would. I had to. Carrie - Why? Austin - Because I needed to know. What happened today, does it change anything between us?


Brady Pub: Lucas encounters Sami outside the pub. I tried to call you, why didn't you answer? Sami - This is not a good time. Lucas - I heard what happened. Sami - What? Lucas - My mom confronted you about being the mole. I swear to you I didn't tell her. She says she's going to send you to jail. Sami - I can't believe I almost forgot about your mom and her threat. Lucas - How could you forget that? What's going on with you? Sami - A lot. Your mom and her threat to send me to prison is actually one small part of a spectacularly bad day that I'm having. I really don't want to talk about it. Lucas - Relax. Talk to me. I want to help you. Sami - You can't. There is nothing you can do to help me and I definitely don't want to talk about it. She walks away.

************************************************

Monday Mar 26

Brady Pub - Part 1: Dan rushes in and apologises to Billie for being late. She tells him she was early. Dan wasn't sure that she would show up. Billie thought that maybe her right hook had scared him off when he suggested coffee over the spa. Dan says coffee is safer but he also thought that she was warned to steer clear of him. Billie asks him why he'd think that. Dan was ordered not to go near her again. Billie - Who would say that? Dan - Kate. Billie - Oh no she didn't. Dan - Kate is nothing if not direct. Billie - How did she know you were near me, did you tell her? Dan - That there was nothing romantic growingbetween us, that it would be a stretch to call us friends? I tried ... Billie says her mother has a way of blowing the most innocent things completely out of proportion. Dan agrees that's why he learned to take Kate in stride. Billie - One day you'll have to tell me how to do that. Dan - Well it would be a long day. As you said yourself, I do have a lousy track record with your family. I'm sure she just wanted to warn you not to fall prey to my questionable charms. Billie doesn't fall prey to anyone. Dan just wanted to give her a head's up so she'd know what she's in for. If she really doesn't want to be seen with him ... Billie - Don't be silly but you can forget coffee. I need a beer! Dan likes her style. Billie's cell rings. Agent Spencer is outside. I need to talk to you; this can't wait.


Coffeehouse - Part 1: Kate hopes Will doesn't feel embarrassed. I've known this about you for ages. Will - Um, sorry, I'm not sure what you're talking about but whatever it is I'm sure you've got it wrong. Kate - Do I? Okay, I don't want to put you on the spot. I just saw that your Dad was making you uncomfortable. Will says he's alright. Kate - He loves you so much and I think that he's been gone for a while and he's out of touch. Will - Look ... Kate - I know what it's like to have a secret that you feel you have to keep hidden from everyone so I just want you to know that I love you no matter what. And I don't give a damn what your sexual orientation is. I suppose you wonder how I know this about you. I work in the fashion industry, we sense these kind of things. Come on, my God, I'm just trying to make you feel comfortable. I feel like you deserve to know that there's someone in you life who understands, who'll be there for you, who's not going to judge you. I know that I'm your grandmother but I hope to God you know that you can be comfortable about coming to me about anything. Will - Honestly, I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm sorry. Kate - I have an idea. Why don't we go someplace private and talk about it. Will - I want to but I've a got someone I've got to meet. See you later.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 1: Nicole is surprised to see Rafe twice in one day. Rafe thinks he might have forgotten his wallet. Nicole didn't see it but she'll look around for it. She finds it on the floor. Rafe says it must have fallen out of his jacket, sorry. I'll see you later. Nicole - Wait, where are you going? Something happened with Sami, didn't it? What did Sami do this time? Rafe - I did it. Told her she should hire a lawyer. I'm getting divorced. OMG, I never thought I'd hear myself say those words. Nicole - Take it from me, the more you say it, the better you feel. Nicole brings a beer for Rafe and some milk for himself. She tells him the beer isn't hers, it was in the back of the mini-fridge. I know you don't feel like celebrating but trust me you will. She pours herself some milk - bottoms up! Rafe - How do you do it? You were in love with EJ, you were about to spend the rest of your life with him. Look at you, you've got this smile in spite of everything that's going on in your life. Nicole - Well yes I feel lousy but that means the baby's sticking. Sure, I'm going to be a single mom but I'm not going to give up because this kid needs me. And you're going to be okay too. Rafe - Yeah. Nicole - I know you feel crappy about ending your marriage, that's natural. But I know Sami and part of you is going to be relieved to have that cup of crazy out of your life. Rafe - Maybe, I just feel so unsure about what's going to happen next. Nicole - It's a weird feeling but it's not all bad. Not knowing what's in store is exciting in a way. Rafe - If you say so. She does. How did Sami take it? Rafe - As you'd expect I guess. She thought there was hope for us. Nicole - Because she's insane. That will pass. Rafe - What does that mean? Nicole - We're talking about Sami here. Soon she'll be messing with some new guys head if she isn't already. Hey, trust me, Sami is going to be enjoying her life again as much as one can enjoy Sami's life with someone else. So what about you?


Carrie's office - Part 1: Austin ascertains that Carrie now believes that he never slept with Abigail. I've never cheated on you. I've never broken our marriage vows just answer me ... does this change things for us or is it too late? You know that I had to come after you. You know me. You know that I can't stand not knowing where we are with each other. Carrie - At Green Mountain when Abigail announced that you had slept together you didn't deny it. That was the worse moment of my life. Austin - And I am so sorry but you know that was the worse moment of my life too. But now we know that Abigail lied. Carrie - I'm just so damned angry. Austin - Are you so angry that you don't see this as a second chance for us? Just tell me that I'm not too late. Can't you at least please tell me what you're thinking. Carrie - I don't know. Austin - I'm just looking for one word. Just please tell me that we still have a chance.


Alamainia - Part 1: John asks Stefano if his goon is still tracking his wife. Stefano will show him instead - cut to the feed - the guy is still behind Marlena in the square. John tells Stefano to call off his man - I'll do whatever you want - just don't hurt her. John watches as the guy gets a call and leaves. John tells Stefano - You win, damn you, you win. I'll do your dirty work whatever it is on two conditions. Stefano - As if you're in a position to dictate terms. John - #1 You're going to stay away from Marlena. You will instruct your goon to back off and never go near her again. #2 Let Hope go back to Salem right now. She needs to be with Bo. Stefano can grant his first request. John - What about Hope? Bo needs her, let her go to him. Stefano - Impossible. What I have in mind requires both of you. John - No deal. Stefano is so sorry to hear him say that. You know how fond I am of Marlena. John - As God is my witness, if anything happens to Marlena I will hunt you down and I will kill you. Hope tells John she appreciates what he tried to do for her but Stefano is right, we are in no position to negotiate. We need to do whatever it takes to keep Marlena safe. Hope tells Stefano the answer is yes.


Coffeehouse - Part 2: Lucas returns and tells Kate they need to talk. Kate can tell by that tone that he means he's going to talk and she's going to listen but if it's about Sami, you're thinking incorrectly. Lucas says Sami is a wreck. There's a lot more than she's telling me but I know she's upset by the threats you made. Sending her to prison, taking her kids away - those kind of threats. Why can't you just fire her like a normal person and be done with it. Kate - Fire her? She committed a serious crime and she's going to go to prison. Do you want some coffee? Lucas - You're unbelievable. You really are a piece of work. Kate - Where's your anger on my behalf. You hardly even blinked an eye when I told you she was the mole. Lucas - That's because I knew already. She told me a while ago. Kate - Why didn't you come and tell me? Lucas - Because she told me that she was going to stop spying for Mad World and I believed her. How did you find out? Kate doesn't think that's the issue. The problem is he's taking Sami's side. My own son is up against me. Lucas - I'm not. You can't stand that I had a relationship with Sami that's been over for years. Kate - When are you going to realise what this girl is capable of? Lucas - All I'm asking is that you back off on the threats. Can you do that for me please? I think she's been punished enough. Kate - Actually her punishment hasn't even begun. Before you came barging in here on her behalf I wasn't sure if I was going to press charges against her, I wasn't sure I was going to go for custody but now I've made a decision, I am. Lucas - Why are you going to do that? Kate - Because it's the only way I can keep that bitch's claws out of you.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 2: Nicole - Too blunt? Rafe - No, it's just ... Nicole - Don't lie to me. I am too blunt but that's what you get with me. Sami is a survivor. I know you don't want to hear this but she's going to find some loser to replace you ASAP. Rafe - That's great. How about we not talk about Sami anymore. Nicole - Yeah. Congratulations! That's your first step. Do you remember telling me earlier how nice it would be to be with a woman who doesn't lie to you every 10 minutes. Rafe - I wasn't saying I was ready to move on. Nicole - Why not? You're available now or about to be. Rafe - It's not that simple. Nicole - You're scared and it's okay to feel that way. Rafe - You sure talk a big game for someone that's holed up in a hotel room. Nicole has her priorities. You already found that woman that doesn't lie to you every 10 minutes so what are you waiting for? Rafe - Nothing. I'm going to tell Carrie. I'm getting divorced. She's getting divorced. We don't have to fight this anymore. Nicole - I hope Carrie knows how lucky she is. Good luck. She hugs him. Rafe thanks her and leaves.


HTS - Part 1: Marlena sees Will walking by and calls out to him. What's going on? Nothing. He tells her she looks great. Marlena says there's going to be a fancy party here later on tonight. I didn't want to come without John but I promised. Maybe you can keep me company for a while? Will has something going on. Marlena can tell something is bothering him. Will is going to be okay. Marlena knows that but sometimes being okay means you can talk about it to somebody. Will doesn't think that's a good idea. Marlena - What's got you so spooked? Will - Do I have a sign on my back? Seriously, I was at Sonny's coffee shop and my dad was weirded out because I was goofing off with Sonny. My other grandma, Kate, says she's known about me for a long time. Marlena - That must have been very disconcerting. Will - They weren't saying the same thing but still ... have you told anyone about me? Marlena - Of course I haven't. I wouldn't do that. Everything you say to me is in strict confidence. Will - I know and she just said she knew, I couldn't even tell what my dad was thinking. If he thought that ... Marlena - If he thought what? Will - Maybe we should do this another time. Marlena - No, maybe we should do this right now.


Brady Pub - Part 2: Outside the pub Billie tells Dan they'll do this again sometime. Okay, he'll call her. After he leaves Agent Spencer steps out. Billie thought he was assigned to another case - what's going on? Spencer tells her the agency is chomping at the bit for her take on the Stefano situation - everything you've found out since you got back to Salem. Then we'll put him away for good. I wish I could have gotten John and Hope out of Alamainia but after Agent Walsh was killed I had no choice but to go underground. I'm doing everything I can to get back. In the meantime we have to keep pressing our case against Stefano. Even if DiMera didn't frame John for the embezzlement charges, I still believe he had something to do with it. Billie agrees. I haven't got to the end of the money trail yet but all signs are leaning towards EJ. Spencer - Stefano's son? Billie - Yes, he's the one that benefited the most from John's indictment and arrest. He exploited the case while he was running for mayor. Spencer asks why EJ didn't just go after Abe the. Billie - He did that too. Spencer - Still there's got to be more to this story which means it's time for you Agent Reed to up your game. You EJ angle makes sense but we need proof. Billie - But I told you I've turned over every stone. I don't have anything else. Spencer - I know but that may all change once your inside the house. You'll have greater access to all of DiMera's personal files. Billie - What do you mean once I'm inside the house? I hate that mansion; it gives me the creeps. Spencer - That's unfortunate as you'll be living there for as long as it takes to get the goods on Stefano. Billie - You want me to move in with my mother? I will need hazard pay for that.


Alamainia - Part 2: Stefano says years ago when Hope was Princess Gina and John was a worthy pawn, he gave the two of them an assignment to steal an item of great value and bring it to him. Hope - And did we? Stefano - You succeeded in stealing the item but you never delivered it to me. You kept it for yourselves. You hid it. Where it is has yet to be found. John - So all this is about some stupid art theft? Stefano - The only thing stupid was your decision to defy me. Hope asks what they supposedly stole. Stefano has a collection of priceless Anastasia eggs. Individually each one is worth a great deal but as a set the value soars. I am one piece short of completing the set because the two of you decided to go rogue. You owe me. He shows them a picture of the piece. It's mine and you are to bring it to me. Hope and John have a short conversation. John - Sorry but we can't help you pal. Stefanoo - 5 minutes into a new arrangement and you are already reneging. Do I need to call my man in Salem again? John says they're not reneging. Hope - After what you did to Bo, we take your threats very seriously. John - It's just that your plan won't work because we have no memory whatsoever of your priceless egg. We don't remember stealing it so we don't remember where we might have hidden it. Hope - We wouldn't even know where to start looking. Stefano hoped the picture would jog their memory. Hope - It didn't. Stefano considered that possibility and he has a solution.


Nicole's hotel room - Part 3: Dan tells Nicole to relax, she's too tense. As he listens to her heart he asks how her stress level has been. Nicole - What's to be stressed about? I have maid service, room service ... I'm sitting around talking to my baby. Now that I don't have morning sickness every 2 minutes it's easy peasy. Dan - That's because you're in the first trimester. How long do you think you can keep this a secret, just for the record? Nicole - Thank you for reminding me that soon I could look like a contestant on the Biggest Loser. Dan is just saying that she can't stay in this room and have this baby. Nicole hasn't figured it out yet but she will. You will be proud to hear that I did pop out and get some fresh air. Rafe came by and took me to the pub and got me a cheeseburger. Dan - Great. Sounds like he's the right guy in a pinch. Nicole - Yeah, he's great. He's been good to me. He even stood up to EJ. The funny thing is I thought it was just going to be me and my baby muddling through this whole thing ourselves. But it turns out I have this hunky support system with two of the greatest guys who actually seem to like me. Go figure.


Carrie's office - Part 2: Carrie - You want to know what I'm thinking? I'm thinking how different things would be if Abigail's lie didn't shatter my faith in you, in us. Austin - Since we're doing cards on the table here, Abigail was not our only problem. There were some other issues between us. Carrie - But me thinking you had been unfaithful to me was the tipping point. Abigail's not the first girl to fall head over heels in love with an older guy but to go so far as that deception; to be that destructive ... Austin - What she did was wrong but I'm the adult. I didn't mean to but I guess I led her on. And I let her twist our friendship into something much more serious in ner mind. I should have headed it off at the pass. I should have stopped it before it got out of hand - that's my mistake. Carrie - Yes, it is your mistake. Austin - I'll live with that one for the rest of my life. Carrie - Once you were convinced that you had slept with her why didn't you tell me about it. Austin - Because I was afraid that was the thing that was going to put us over the edge. All I could think of was saving our marriage and I could not face the idea of living my life without you. I still can't. Could you please tell me that you feel the same way. Rafe comes up to the door that is partially open. Carrie - I know a marriage isn't something that you can just toss aside when times get hard. If you love the other person you have to be willing to do the work and sometimes see the other person's perspective. You have to admit that you're wrong sometimes. Austin - That's what I'm doing; I'm trying to do that. Carrie - I just felt so betrayed when I thought you had slept with Abigail. In fact, I was ready to end our marriage. Austin - And now? Carrie - Everything I was feeling was based on a lie and it's all different now. Rafe hears all this. Austin - You have no idea how much I hoped you would say that. I know that it's going to take time like you said but we can really put all our mistakes behind us and start over. He takes her in his arms. That's all I want. Rafe leaves. Carrie - It's not that simple. I wish it were but it isn't. The truth about you and Abigail isn't what I thought it was but the feelings it brought up for me can't just be switched off. Austin - What are you saying? Carrie - I'm saying I don't know how to answer your question. I don't know what the future holds for us. I don't. She grabs her purse and leaves.


DiMera mansion: Kate leaves a message for Stefano. I know you're busy but can you call so I don't worry about you. The doorbell rings. Kate calls for Harold but then answers the door herself. It's the goon that was following Marlena with a package for Stefano. Kate - You know he's not home. He knows but Stefano told him to leave it here for when he comes back. Kate - When did you speak to him? The guy has to go. Kate sets the parcel down in the living room but can't seem to ignore it. She opens it and pulls out the dossier and flips through it. He's tracking her every move - she flips through the pictures of Marlena.


HTS - Part 2: Marlena tells Will if he wants to go someplace alone and sort things out it wouldn't hurt her feelings. Will shakes his head no. Marlena - It's just mighty hard for me to see you hurting. Try to sort things that are confusing for you - sometimes it helps just to say things out loud about your feelings to somebody else. Will - You don't understand. I can't. Marlena - Oh but you can. It seems like you want to dash out of here. Will - That's because part of me does. The other part of me says if I don't get it out now, I'll explode. You know I don't know because I think it's going to make it worse. Marlena - Honey, you won't know until you try. Will - How do I know now is the right time? How do I know anytime is the right time. Seriously, how does anybody know that? Marlena - I don't have the answer for you. Will - Feelings suck Grandma. You try to ignore them and you try to push them away but it's not working for me. I think I might be gay.


Alamainia - Part 3: Stefano wasn't sure if they would retain any memory of that phase in their lives so he retained an expert that can help. John - We didn't sign on for this. Stefano - It shouldn't be that difficult to transform you into the people you were when you stole that priceless object. Hope - You want to turn us into Princess Gina and the pawn - you're completely insane. Stefano - I intend to get what is rightfully mine. Now if you don't like the approach, tell me yours. I'm all ears.

********************************************

Tuesday Mar 27

Brady Pub - Part 1: EJ walks in to the pub to find Sami sitting at the bar drinking alone. She tells him the kids are upstairs with her grandma. EJ just came to say goodnight to them. He thought she was going on a business trip. Sami tells him there's been a change of plan. When EJ asks what sort of change Sami tells him if he wants to see the kids he should go up now; they're about to go to sleep. EJ comes back down and tells Sami that Sydney fell asleep on his shoulder. Sami - Oh, I guess they're planning on staying here tonight. EJ - You were planning to take them with you? Sami - I was just about to figure out what to do next. EJ - Because Kate cancelled your business trip? Sami - She cancelled more than that. Your stepmother is out to destroy me. The last thing EJ wants is to get involved in her business dealings with Kate. Sami - Who asked you to get involved? Kayla steps up - Everything alright here? Sami tells her everything is great. Somehow Kayla doesn't believe that. EJ - asks what Sami is drinking and then tells Kayla they'll take a bottle. Sami wonders why he ordered a bottle of wine if he doesn't want to get involved in her problems. EJ - 2 reasons. The first is you're the mother of my children and the second - you look like you could use it. Sami - It's the fact that I'm the mother of Lucas's children that makes Kate want to kill me. EJ thought she and Kate were getting along swimmingly. Sami - I never should have gone to work for her. EJ - Maybe these things will just blow over. Kate has this thing right now. She's got it in her head that somebody is spying on her organization. You could ingratiate yourself by finding out who this little rat is. Silence. EJ - OMG. It's you.


HTS - Part 1: Kate recalls opening the dossier on Marlena. She calls Stefano and leaves him yet another message for him to call her. Madison walks up to large table set up for the dinner to find Ian there - she's not pleased. Ian knew she'd look fantastic in that dress the minute he saw it on the runway in Paris. Madison tells him this was supposed to be a dinner with 2 fashion editors. It is; he invited two editors of Titan subsidairies. He told them it was time they met some local talent. He comments - Here comes our first guest. It's Brady.

When Will says 'I think I might be gay' Marlena's response is - Is that it? Will - Yeah, I said I think I might be gay. I told you that I kissed Neil because I was drunk but I ... I ... Marlena - I think it's okay. Remeber that Lady Gaga song you played for me once where she said sexuality is like the colour of your eyes. It's the thing that you're born with. I happen to agree with that. You were born with great good looks, charm and wisdom and a wonderful future. And if you're figuring things out about yourself now and acknowledging it, it's nothing to be ashamed of. It's a cause for celebration. Will - I didn't say that I was sure that I was gay. Marlena - Okay. Will - I don't want my Grandma Caroline in church praying for my soul trying to save me from eternal damnation. Marlena chuckles. Honey, do you think there has never been a Brady or DiMera that was gay? Will - If there was he didn't let anyone find out about it. He notices she's calling someone and asks who. Marlena doesn't think she needs to be at that dinner party representing Basic Black. I thought I'd cancel. Will tells her not to do that. Marlena loves being with him; talking to him. Will loves talking to her too but you always change your plans for me. I've actually got to pick up my friends and I'm late so I've got to go. Sorry. He takes off.

Brady comments that the invitation he got was from 2 fashion editors. Madison got the same one. Kate walks up and asks what they're all doing here. Ian - As head of Titan I felt it was incumbent of me to promote all of the businesses here in Salem. Marlena walks up and greets everyone. Ian will order some champagne for a toast. Kate comments that Marlena is late - what kept you? Marlena ran into Will on the way in. Kate - He's alright, isn't he? Marlena thinks so. Kate reminds her that she's not the only one that cares for will. He has two grandmothers. I want nothing but the best for him. Marlena knows that.


Alamainia - Part 1: John can't believe he agreed to be the old man's errand boy once again. When Hope wonders why he needs someone called Princess Gina John responds 'Because it's fun for him. If we want to keep Bo and Marlena alive the old man is calling all of the shots now. We have to do whatever it takes to get home. I was hoping there would be another way but it looks like this is it. We'll give Stefano whatever the hell he wants and then get out of here.' Hope - But letting Stefano get into our heads? John - Even if we find that jewel ... Hope - He doesn't care about that. He just wants to control us and we said yes. John - What else were we going to say? Hope - We're damned if we do and Bo and Marlena are damned if we don't.


Coffeehouse - Part 1: Chad and Melanie walk into the place and a pretty young thing starts gushing over Chad - he's the guy in the magazine ad. Chad points to Gabi who is also there and says she was in the ad too. He puts his arm around Melanie - This is my girlfriend. The girl wants him to sign her shirt. He reluctantly agrees. After she leaves Chad apologises for that. Melanie - It's just the price of fame.


HTS - Part 2: Melanie stands to the side as Kate introduces Chad and Gabi as the faces of Countess W to the fashion editors. The female editor comments that they have such chemistry together. Gabi agrees. Chad introduces Melanie to them. The male editor asks Gabi - How long have you and Chad been together? Chad says they're not together. Gabi adds that they used to be but that was a while ago. Chad pulls Melanie close - Actually I'm with Melanie. Marlena tells Brady she thinks they should use tonight to promote Basic Black and she's going to do that right now. Kate stews about the 'Queen of the Night'.


Coffeehouse - Part 2: Chad, Mel and Gabi return. Gabi is texting her mom to tell her she met the editors of those fashion magazines she reads at the hairdressers. Mel is glad they were there for just the drinks. She doesn't know how much more talk of the 'wow factor' she could have taken. Gabi notices Will and says they were worried about him. Will apologises. Gabi tells him it was fantastic. We drank champagne and met all these fabulous people. She had a great time. Gabi suggests that they go to a club. Chad says that he and Melanie are heading back to his place. Gabi recalls planting her earring in his bed. She tells them to have a great time. Will and I have a lot of catching up to do.


Brady Pub - Part 2: EJ and Sami move to a table. EJ - I'm right, aren't I? Sami - It wasn't my idea, it was Madison's. EJ - You went along with it; are you out of your mind? Sami - I thought it was a good idea at the time. She was my boss and anyway she chickened out of the whole thing and I quit. I don't work for her anymore. EJ - That doesn't mean it's not espionage sweetheart. Sami knows that and Kate is threatening to press charges; the whole thing. You're a lawyer. OMG. Am I really desperate enough to ask you for advice right now. Yes I am. Kayla comes over with the wine. Kayla offers to get Sami something to eat but Sami refuses. Sami asks EJ - What do I do now? EJ tells her the first thing she needs to do is calm down. Sami - And then what? EJ - Without any specifics I can't really give you any advice. Sami - I just need the name of a good criminal lawyer and then I'll figure out how to pay him. EJ knows someone; he might waive the fee. Sami - What's his name? EJ - Elvis, god help him. Sami - You're going to represent me? EJ - Precisely. Sami - Why? What do you get out of this? Unless you're going to work with Kate to take my kids away from me. EJ - I would not do that to them. Sami - You've already done that to them. EJ - I wouldn't do that to them ... again. Sami - Why? Because you're a changed man? Puh-leese. EJ - If you were not the mother of my children you could disappear and never come back; I wouldn't care. But you are and they love you. So for their sakes I'm going to keep you from making an even bigger mess of your life than you already have. Sami - Do you know that it's your fault that my life is a mess? Yes, it is totally your fault. If it weren't for you, I'd have Rafe to help me out of this mess right now but I don't so I'm all by myself. He wants a divorce.


HTS - Part 3: Marlena sees Brady guzzling champagne - Easy there big boy. Brady - Does she look like a woman in love to you? Marlena - Yes she does, just not with Ian. Brady - Exactly. Marlena - But that's not the point. There's obviously some reason she's staying with him and you can't change that. Ian announces that dinner is about to be served. Everyone takes their places - conveniently Brady and Madison are seated next to each other. Ian thanks everyone for coming. I know we're all competitors but we do have one thing in common; we appreciate beauty and understand power. Some campaigns will prosper and some will not so may the best man or woman win. Here's to attaining your heart's desire. Ian has an announcement to make. I have worked very hard and I've been lucky but heading Titan is something I could only dream about when I was young. Proud as I am of my achievements, I'm more proud of the beautiful lady who shares my life. Helping Madison to become successful is one of my greatest achievements. And when you are as happy as we are together and as fortunate, I feel that's it's only right to give something back. That is why I've created a foundation in Madison's name. A portion of the sale of every Mad World product will be used to help young ladies in underprivileged areas to realise their dreams. Applause. Madison doesn't know what to say. Brady does. I have one or two things to say about your wife. Brady pours himself more champagne. I would like to toast your lovely wife. Oh by the way, she's not something you created. Marlena tells Brady to sit down. No. You'd like everyone to think that but it's bull. This woman is who she is and where she is because of her, not you. Madison - Thank you Brady. That's enough. Ian doesn't think so. Brady - She didn't need you then, she doesn't need you now so why don't you go back to where you came from and leave her the hell alone. That would be great. Madison snaps - I said that's enough!


Chad's room - Part 1: Chad sets the mood in the room. He notices Mel is a bit jumpy and asks her if there's something she's not telling him. Mel - Yeah. Chad quickly blows out the candles and puts on the light. Mel is sorry. Ever since you got this modelling thing I feel like I have to fight off half the women in America. Chad - I let all those girls know that I'm with you. Mel knows - she's not used to being jealous. I'm not jealous, jealous but the bitch with the shirt ... I almost ripped her head off. And Gabi. Chad - What about her? Mel - Everybody says you have so much chemistry together and you do. I just don't know where it's coming from. Chad - So you're jealous of Gabi? She and I get paid to look like we're hot for each other. It's not real whatsoever. Mel knows but it seems like Gabi thinks it's real. She looks at you like she's madly in love with you. It doesn't bother you at all? Chad - It doesn't matter what Gabi thinks. It doesn't mean anything. But if you want to see what madly in love looks like, look at me when I look at you. Mel - You're madly in love. Chad - Yes and I want us to be together. They kiss.


Alamainia - Part 2: Hope asks John - What are we doing? John - We are keeping the people we love alive. And right now we cannot allow ourselves to think the worst. We have to stay strong. Hope - How do we do that? Once Stefano is through with us we won't even remember Bo and Marlena. When I talked to Billie she said Bo was in really bad shape. John - Stefano said ... Hope snaps - I don't believe a word out of his lying mouth. She yells at the monitor - I want proof that Bo is still alive or I'm not doing anything for you. Damn it - answer me. No response. She keeps yelling so John pulls her away and tells her that she saw the video of Marlena. If Bo had died you would have seen it in her eyes. She would be with Bo's family not walking around Salem with one of Stefano's goons trailing her. That is why we're going to do exactly what Stefano wants. Hope - Once we lose our free will, how do we know we'll ever get it back.


Brady Pub - Part 3: Will and Gabi walk up outside the pub. Will - What's the deal with you and Chad? Gabi - There's no deal. Your apartment, btw, is amazing. Will - Don't change the subject, what's the deal. Gabi doesn't want to talk about Chad. I want to know why EJ pays your rent and why he bought you a car? Will - Perks of the job. Gabi - How does your mom feel about you working for EJ? Will - Oh she loves it. Gabi - What about Rafe? Will - He doesn't get a vote anymore. Gabi - So you honestly like working for EJ? Will does. I didn't at first but it turned out better than I expected.

EJ - So you don't think Rafe is going to get over himself and forgive you? Sami - If he were screaming and fighting with me, I'd think I had a chance. But he's not. He's so calm about the whole thing. He's offering to let me and the kids stay in the loft - like I could stay there without him. Now I have to find a place to stay with the kids that I can afford with no job. I'll get right on that if I don't end up in jail. EJ - It doesn't sound very much like you Samantha. Sami - What do you mean, like me? EJ - You sound like you've given up. You sound lost, defeated. Sami - It's not just what you and I did, I have a little problem with my sister to deal with too. Carrie set her sights on Rafe the moment she met him. She's having trouble with her marriage now too. EJ - Do you really think that Carrie's the problem? Sami - Are you kidding me? After all the problems I caused her and Austin she's loving every minute of it. How are things with you and Nicole? EJ - Well, I signed the divorce papers, just waiting for her to file them. Sami - There goes your big idea to keep it a secret huh. What the hell were we thinking? EJ - We weren't thinking. I thought that I had lost my son. In the moment I thought the only person that felt that pain was you. Sami - But why can't we experience pain like normal people; you know, hold hands, cry? Why were we tearing each other's clothes off? Either we're the most disgusting people on the planet or we're crazy. We can't leave each other alone.

Gabi - If you're happy, that's all that matters. It's cool that you're getting everything you want. Will - Not everything I want. Gabi - But you could, right? Technically if you had somebody backing you up. Will - What somebody? Gabi - Maybe it could help to have a woman around. Will - What are you getting at?


HTS - Part 4: Marlena follows Brady out of the square - Let's get you home. Brady - Somebody has to get through to Madison. She has to know how much ... that guy is a jerk! Marlena - Somebody has to get through to you. She mentions the 12 steps. How many drinks did you have tonight? Brady doesn't know. But I'm not an alcholic and I can handle it. Marlena - You can handle it? Let me share with you. Besides making a fool of yourself tonight you also put Basic Black in jeopardy. Do you even have any idea of what you've done?

Back at the table Kate has her say. There's one thing to be said about Brady. He knows how to bring a deadly evening to life. Madison is going leave. Ian barks - Sit down. Madison - No. Damn it Ian. This was not about business. This was about you torturing Brady. That's why you set this up. I'm not going to help you do that anymore. She leaves. Kate comments that Ian is going to need a whole 'nother bottle of champagne to take the curse off this evening. I think you should accept the fact that the person you married is in love with someone else. That's what I did. Oh yes, I found out Stefano is still obsessed with Marlena.' Ian - How do you know? Kate - I have proof that he's tracking her every move. I don't even know why I'm telling you this. Ian - I do; because in your heart of hearts you know that I care about you the way that Stefano never will. Ian pours them some champagne. It may interest you to know that I did not come to Salem for Madison. I came here for you. Kate finds that difficult to believe considering he forbids her to use what she has on Madison to destroy her and that you force me to witness your gag inducing display of husbandly pride. Ian - That was just my attempt to remind Madison of how much she owes me. Like you saw, she went chasing after Brady like I knew she would. She's so predictable. At least she left me alone with you; a woman who gets more and more beautiful. Kate - Well I'm not yours anymore. There was a time when I wanted that more than anything but you preferred Madison and now I prefer my husband. Ian - Even if he prefers Marlena? Kate - That won't last long. I'll fix that. Ian takes her hand. I want you to know that whenever you're ready I'll be here waiting for you. Kate pulls her hand away and gets up and leaves.

Brady knows he lost it a bit tonight. It's going to be fine. I can fix it. Madison runs up - Thank god, I thought you were in your car somewhere. Marlena - I wouldn't let that happen. You two need to talk. She leaves. Madison tells Brady he has to stop letting Ian push his buttons. Brady - Ian doesn't scare me the way he scares you. Madison - Well he should. When you wanted to leave I should have said fine, go. Brady - Don't you know I wouldn't have left you behind. He kisses her. After kissing him back she pushes him away and tells him they can't do this. Brady - Yes we can. We want to do it, I want to do it, let's do it. Madison - You have to let me go. Brady - You can't tell me what to do. Madison - You will lose everything. Do you hear me? You will go under and take your dad's company with you.


Brady Pub - Part 4: EJ empties the bottle into Sami's glass. Sami - You didn't say anything about what I said. EJ - About the two of us being out of our minds? He laughs. I don't know. Maybe the two of us are unique. Sami - That's a good word to describe us. EJ - Well, we both seem to think we're the center of our own universes. Sami - Maybe that's what makes the sex so good. Sorry, I'm just saying ... I mean it's a horrible set of circumstances. I can't believe we're the only two people on the entire planet who would do something like that under those circumstances. No wonder Rafe can't understand it; I don't understand it either. Were you happy with Nicole? EJ - Yeah of course eventually. Sami - What does that mean? How does that happen? How do we ruin everything like we always do? We just blow it. I don't understand; it's not like ... now here we are sitting here all alone. EJ - You're not alone Samantha.

Gabi asks Will why he's looking at her like that. Will is just trying to figure out what she wants. Gabi - My whole life I've done everything by the book; that's how I was raised. Will - Me too, believe it or not. Gabi - Sometimes when you do everything by the book then you just end up with the book. Will - Yeah. The people who tell you to live one way aren't doing it themselves. Gabi - Exactly. You're working for EJ and your life's better, right? Will - Yeah. Gabi - Waiting around for things to happen a lot of the time just gets you nowhere. I think bending the rules a little bit isn't bad. Will agrees. Gabi - Teach me how to do that. Will - Do what? Gabi - Stop being perfect Will and got EJ to do all of this for you. Will - What do I get out of it? Gabi - Well I meant it when I said we could both help each other. Marlena walks up and greets the two of them. Will asks about the dinner she was supposed to be at. Marlena says dinner ended early. Maybe we have some time for coffee. Will - Maybe some other time. Gabi and I are about to go out so goodnight. See you. Marlena watches them leave - Really?


Chad's room - Part 2: Cut to the romantic scene complete with music as Chad and Melanie make out. They start to undress each other. He lays her on the bed and stretches out her hands. Ouch. Chad asks her what happened? She holds up an earring. Where did this come from? Chad has no idea how it got there. What is it? Mel - It's someone's earring. I feel like there's something you're not telling me. Okay. Mel starts getting dressed. I'm going home. Chad - This isn't what you think it is. I told you I have no idea how it got there. Mel thinks she has an idea. Just for the future, when you set up a little seduction scene, change your sheets. She leaves.


Brady Pub - Part 5: Sami - What do you mean I'm not alone? Oh, you mean because of the kids, right? Pause. EJ - Right. Sami - I'll have to find a way to tell them that everything's going to be alright. I just don't know to rally to do it this time. EJ - Samantha, I'm not going to let you and the children go under. Sami - Oh good. You'll find a way to buy them off just like you did Will with that fancy apartment that he won't even let me go inside. You know he's barely talking to me. You know why I took that job with Kate and why I stayed there. Because I was proud and I was good at that job. And I had a paycheque with my name on it. And I could support my kids and take care of my family. And I liked it and now I don't have that or Rafe. EJ - Samantha, you and I will get through this. We're strong. We overcome any obstacles that are put in front of us. You just keeping being you, okay? He covers her hand with his. You'll be fine.

Wednesday Mar 28

Police Station Interrogation Room: A cop is removing the handcuffs from Abe. Abe asks if Roman posted his bail when the cop informs him that his bail has been paid. Lexie - No, I did. The cop leaves to get Abe's paperwork. Abe doesn't know what to say other than thank you. Lexie tells him he doesn't have to thank her. He does. You didn't have to do this. After everything I put you through you had every right to turn your back on this whole mess. Lexie - At the very least I couldn't let the father of my child spend one more day in jail than he had to. Abe asks how Theo is. He misses his daddy. Abe - I miss him and you more than anything. You don't have to say anything. I don't know what got into me during the campaign; everything I did to win when winning isn't nearly as important as just one night at home with you and Theo. Lexie misses that too; more than you know. I owe you a huge apology. Abe - You're apologising to me? For what? Lexie - For treating you so terribly these past few weeks; for turning my back on you, shutting you out. You didn't deserve that. Abe - I cheated in the debate and I lied to you. You had every right to be angry. Lexie - Yeah well anger doesn't preclude forgiveness especially when my life hasn't been blameless. When you were arrested and they put you in those handcuffs it just made me see how wrong all this is. You are a good man who made a mistake. I should have been at your side not up on my high horse. I am so sorry. I hope you can forgive me. Abe - Sweetheart there is nothing to forgive. I love you and I always will. So what are we going to do now. I'm no longer the mayor. I can't go back to the force with these charges hanging over my head. Lexie - I know there's something very important I have to do. Abe - What's that? Lexie - Help you move back home where you belong.


Coffeehouse - Part 1: Billie joins her mom. Kate comments that she looks pale. You've been spending too much time at the hospital. Billie thinks it's good for Bo to have voices around of people that care for him. Kate points out that he's in a coma; he doesn't know you're there. Billie thinks he does sense people around him. Kate rebuts that there are a horde of Brady that could hold vigil which would be an upside to all their unchecked breeding. Billie thinks she could be a little more sympathic to his situation. Kate decides to let the subject drop. Billie wants to talk to her about something. I'm concerned that no one has been able to reach Hope and John. I think somebody does know; I think Stefano is behind all of this. Kate - Every time something goes wrong in this town everyone immediately thinks it's Stefano. Billie - And 98% of the time they're right. So come on, spill it. What's your new hubby up too? Kate - There's a line and you just crossed it. If you can't talk about Stefano with respect then I would prefer you don't talk about him at all. You need to listen very carefully. Stefano is away on business and that business has nothing to do with John or Hope. Billie - No, because it has all to do with Marlena. Kate - What's that supposed to mean? Billie doesn't think Stefano is over his obsession with Marlena; I think he's still addicted. Kate - No! Billie - Let's think about that. Marlena comes back to Salem and what does Stefano do? He makes sure Marlena is left vulnerable and alone by making sure John is a thousand miles away. Come on - don't you think this is déjà vu all over again? Kate - Stefano has absolutely nothing to do with John and Hope's situation. Think about it, they were completely different people before. Maybe the warped into new people and they're taking a cruise together. Billie - This is not funny. Kate - You know what's not funny; my daughter denigrating my husband, my marriage and my happiness. Billie - You really love him, don't you? Kate - I do love him. Billie - Then you're in a much bigger mess than I even thought. Kate leaves the table in a huff.


HTS - Part 1: Marlena is on her cell leaving John a message. Please call me, I'm getting concerned. I love you and I'm missing you. Will sees her sitting on the bench so he comes over and asks if this is a good time - are you going to make another call? Marlena tells him it's a very good time. I woke up thinking about you; about our conversation last night. Will - That's actually what I want to talk to you about because I think maybe you might have gotten the wrong impression about some of the things I was saying. Marlena - Really? Will - Yeah. I want you to know that I don't really think that I'm gay. I meant that basically I overreacted because my Dad overreacted. He saw Sonny and me messing around and he got weirded out by it. Marlena - And what else? Will - He and Grandma Kate are living in the past; they're perpetuating these stereotypes. For example, being on the football team doesn't mean you're straight and hanging out with a gay guy doesn't mean you're gay. Marlena - Stereotypes can be very inaccurate; they can also be very damaging. Will - Yeah ... so thinking I was gay ... basically what I'm saying is if I was gay I would know it and I'm not. So let's just forget what I said. Marlena - 'Fraid I can't do that. I won't discuss it with anybody but I can't behave as though it didn't happen. You're clearly upset, very upset, at the thought of people, of your family thinking that you're gay. Will - It doesn't matter because it just isn't true. Marlena - It matters to me. So I need to say something; maybe I need to say it over and over and over. I love you, always will no matter what.

Nicole sees Rafe so she calls out to him. You look like a man who hasn't had his morning coffee yet. Rafe apologises - I'm just a little distracted. Nicole can see that - Carrie? That doesn't make any sense. You were going to tell Carrie how you feel and you know how she feels; you should be flying high right now. Rafe went to talk to her yesterday. When I got there she was already talking to Austin and they're apparently going to work things out which is good for them. I'm happy for them. Nicole - No you're not. Come on. You're a great guy so naturally you feel you have to say that. Rafe scoffs - This great guy really doesn't want to talk about that right now. More importantly, how are you? Nicole - I'm fine. Ever since you took me out for that cheeseburger it's been like my morning sickness is cured so thank you. And thank you keeping my secret for me. Rafe thought about it and figured pregnancy is a personal thing so you should feel free to tell whoever you want. Nicole - Still I shouldn't have dragged you into my mess. Now EJ thinks we slept together. EJ walks up - If it isn't Salem's latest lovers out for a stroll. How wonderfully nauseatingly romantic. So what exactly was it that set the sparks flying? Was it 2 for 1 drinks at the sports club. Nicole - As usual you're wrong. Rafe - Nicole, you don't owe him an explanation. EJ - More than that, she wouldn't be able to give me one even if she tried. How could she possibly explain ending up with a man who she used to call a self-important jerk. Nicole - So I called him a few crappy things in the past. Now I know who the real jerk is. Rafe suggests they get out of here. Nicole tells him to go ahead. There's a few things I'd like to talk to His Honour about. Rafe asks if she wants to stick around. She's fine. Rafe tells her to call if she needs anything. She will. He leaves. EJ - You really disappoint me Nicole. I understand you want to pay me back but really, come on, Samantha's leavings? Nicole - You're a real charmer but newsflash, what I have with Rafe is none of your freakin' business. EJ believes it his business when she decides to flaunt what she has with Rafe in public to embarrass him. Nicole - Just a minute, you kidnap children, you have hitmen on speed dial and you think I'm the one who's tarnishing your image? EJ - You're my wife in case you've forgotten. Nicole - No, I haven't forgotten. I'm rectifying the situation. EJ - How do you mean? Nicole - You know those divorce papers that I had you sign, I filed them. EJ - No. Nicole - Yes. Before long our divorce will be final and I for one can't wait. She walks away.


Brady Pub - Part 1: Sami is on her cell - Let me get this straight. You allow people with pets but not people with kids; how is that even legal? She hangs up on the person. She sees Carrie come in. Carrie thinks they should talk. Sami doesn't want to fight with her. Carrie - Good, neither do I. I was thinking we could clear the air; talk things out. Sami - Are you kidding? After what you have done there is no way I would absolutely ever forgive you. Carrie - Don't you think with everything our family is going through we can try and talk this out. Sami - No. Carrie - I can't believe you won't even try to be civil about this. What am I saying, of course I believe it. Sami - You stole my husband and you expect me to be civil? Carrie - I didn't steal your husband. Sami - Really? Then why did he ask me for a divorce? Carrie - What? Sami - Don't act like you didn't plan the whole thing. Carrie - I didn't know. Sami - You don't care. You tried to steal my husband. You did everything you could to take him away from me. Carrie - You can't blame me for what happened. You slept with EJ, Rafe finally found out about it and that's what ended your marriage. Sami - You had no idea what happened with EJ when you made a play for my husband. You were having trouble in your marriage with Austin, you saw Rafe and went in for the kill. Carrie - Stop playing the victim and for once in your life take responsibility and stop blaming everyone else. Sami - I know what I did was wrong but I didn't mean to hurt Rafe or anyone else. I'm a screw-up, big time but at least I'm not a husband stealing hypocrite.


HTS - Part 2: Will - So you think I'm gay too? Marlena - The truth? I don't care. I just like the whole package. Nothing is going to change that, gay or straight to be determined. It just doesn't matter. Will - I know, you're the only person in the whole world I know that about. Marlena - I think you might be selling some people short. I know that you were upset by your dad's reaction but I'm not sure it reflects how he feels about you. Will - He was disappointed in me. How do you think my mom's going to react if it were true. Marlena - Okay, we'll just speak in hypotheticals. I think your family would need time to rethink their assumptions about you but I'm a little more worried about you. If your family can't accept what's going on then that's their problem but if you can't accept who you are, you'll be in for a very unhappy life. Will - No, I won't because I'm not gay. I won't be gay. I just won't. Marlena - Do you think there's something wrong with being gay? Will - No. Look at Sonny, he's great but the thing is he's fine with being gay because it doesn't bother him. But it bothers me because I want a family and I want kids and I want a normal life. Marlena - What's normal? You know gay people have spouses, they have children. Will - It wouldn't be the same. Marlena - Same as that picture in your head of what a family is? I want you to go for it because that's what we do. We take what we've been given and most of the time what we've been given is better than anything we could have imagined for ourselves. Will - You know Grandma ... you know when I'm hanging out with Sonny and his friends I feel like I fit in. God, I can't believe my grandma is my best friend. Marlena laughs and gives him a hug - I love you so much. I have watched you for so long and I've seen you go through so much and you keep on getting stronger. Will - I don't know about that. Marlena - Well it's my call and as we both know, I'm always right. Will laughs. Marlena - You are so strong. You are so honest and you are becoming a hell of a man. It gets better and you get better every single day and I am unspeakably proud of you. Will hugs her.


Brady Pub - Part 2: Carrie - I did not go after Rafe. I did not talk badly about you. I did not manipulate him. Sami - Right, you just couldn't help yourself. It was bigger than the both of you. You were swept away on a sea of emotions. Carrie - You're not even feeling a tad hypocritical, are you? Sami - You admitted that you were falling in love, right? That you couldn't help yourself from falling in love with my husband. That's what Austin overheard you say, am I right? No wonder he cheated on you. Carrie - Oh, he didn't cheat on me. Abigail lied. Sami - What? Carrie - They never slept together. Austin was drunk and he passed out. Sami - So he didn't betray you? Carrie - No he didn't. Sami - Well that changes everything or does it? What are you going to do now that you know the truth? Carrie - I don't know what I'm going to do about Austin. I have a lot to think about. Sami - Take your time. It's fun having two men on a string, right? Carrie - Funny coming from you. I wouldn't do that on purpose. Sami - Again you mean. I think you enjoy it having two men fighting over you especially since I have no one. Carrie - Come on, that is not fair. Sami - Not fair? What's not fair is you waltzing back into Salem ruining my marriage and then you get to go back to your husband as if nothing happened. Or you get to be with Rafe. Either way you win - that's what's not fair. I hate you for it. She walks out.


HTS - Part 3: EJ catches up to Nicole - You're going to divorce me? Nicole - Better late than never. EJ - I see. You're tacky little affair with Hernandez isn't enough now you have to hurt me. Nicole - Do you really want to bring up the topic of fidelity? Don't you think your little tryst with Sami was humilating and hurtful for me? God EJ, maybe you're right. Maybe I don't have any self-respect. Maybe I agree with you - I know it's not my long suit but I know enough that I'm never, ever going to take you back. EJ - You know why it kills me to see you with Hernandez. It's not that I'm angry or jealous, it's that I pushed you to do it. I love you. You're the only girl that I've ever loved. Please, that's the truth. He grabs her hands - What we have is special. We can survive this. Nicole struggles until she pulls away - Stop it. Save your rhetoric for City Hall. I am not going to let you suck me in. Once this divorce is final I don't have to deal with you anymore and there will be nothing left to bond us together - nothing. So goodbye. Have a nice life. Actually, have a lousy life. She walks away. Sami witnesses Nicole walking away and walks up to a dejected EJ - You look like hell. She sits next to him. I know the feeling.


Coffeehouse - Part 2: Billie goes to Kate and apologises for going so far. It's just kind of hard for me to accept the fact that my mother is married to Stefano DiMera. And I'd just feel better if someone was watching over you in that mausoleum. As a matter of fact I was just thinking that I'm back in Salem for a while and I don't really like living out of a hotel, maybe I could live with you? Kate - I think that I don't need anyone watching over me. Billie - Well what if I said that I just didn't want to say that I'm lonely and want to spend time with my mom. Kate smiles - Then I would say I think I have a spare key. When do you want to move in? Billie - How about today? Kate - That would be great but don't you think it would have been a lot more pleasant if you had just said this, been honest about it in the beginning? Billie - You're right. I should be a lot more like you. Kate gives her the key and hugs her. I'm so thrilled to have you there. I'll call Harold to get a room ready for you. I have to go to work but I'm going to spend the whole day thinking how wonderful it's going to be when I come home and have my girl there waiting for me. Billie thanks her - it will be fun. Kate - I know you're going to find out that you're wrong about Stefano.


Brady Pub - Part 3: Rafe comes in and sees Carrie so he comes over and greets him. She asks him to sit down so she can tell him what's happened. I found out ... I still can't believe she did it ... Rafe - She? Carrie - Abigail lied. She and Austin never slept together. Rafe - She lied? Wow. That changes everything, doesn't it. Carrie - It means that Austin didn't cheat on me but ... Rafe - It's fine. I get it. This is your chance to work things out with Austin. I'm happy for you. I really am.


HTS - Part 4: Sami - I saw Nicole storm off, obviously things didn't go well. EJ - She's filed for divorce just so she could be with that ... Sami - Who? Are you serious? She's already hooking up with someone? EJ - It's probably better that you hear this from me. I went to Nicole's hotel room last night. Rafe was there. Sami - Oh. What was he doing there? EJ - They're sleeping together Samantha. Sami laughs. You really are crazy. Come on. Rafe would not sleep with Nicole. He would not stoop that low. EJ - I saw them together in the hotel room, both of them half naked. Sami - Obviously you were hallucinating. EJ - I thought maybe it's a one time thing and I come down here to the square today and I see both of them together, very close. Sami - Do you think they're doing it to get even with us? It's one thing he's with my sister but Nicole - the one woman I hate more than anyone on the planet and we're not even divorced yet! EJ - Come on, it's not like your husband has a lot of class. Sami - I just can't believe that he hates me that much.

Marlena and Will finish up their meal. Will needs to get back to class. Thank you for the advice. She laughs as he places money on the table. I'll bill you for it minus your healthy little tip. Will will call her later. Kate walks up - You're leaving, don't you have a minute? Will doesn't. I'm late for class. He leaves. Marlena greets Kate. Kate - He was confiding in you, wasn't he? Well confiding in me or not, it's confidential. Kate - I know he's gay and I know he's upset about it. Marlena - I don't ask Will about his conversations with you so maybe that would be a good thing to make a two-way street. Kate - I'm not a doctor, I'm his grandmother and I love him just as much as you do. Marlena - I know you do and when Will choses to speak to you, he will but please don't ... Kate - But please don't what? Push? Thank you so much for your guidance because I was going to give him a boxed set of the first threes seasons of Will and Grace. How insensitive of me! Thank God I have you here to pass judgement on me. Marlena - I'm not passing judgement. I'm just trying to protect the boy. Kate - Protect him from me? Let me tell you something Doc, you try and come between me and my grandson, you'll be a very sorry woman. Will is strong. Will doesn't need to be coddled. Will is going to accept the truth. Marlena - I agree and he will do that in his own good time. Kate - Just stay out of my relationship with Will. As a matter of fact stay out of all my relationships. Marlena - What does that mean? Kate - That means that something is going on between you and my husband and I want to know what it is NOW! Marlena laughs. Oh my goodness.


The Carver house: Abe sits on the bed as Lexie unpacks his suitcase. I never thought I'd see this room again. I used to close my eyes and I would imagine this room and you. He holds her - That's the only way I could get to sleep in that place. Lexie - I was just thinking about how happy Theo i
