A Look At Tomorrow for Monday, Jul 2nd
HTS - Part 1: Carrie tells Marlena that shopping with her is way different then shopping with Kate. Marlena hopes so. Carrie - You have no idea. Marlena asks if Kate tried to pick out all her clothes. I won't do that to you; I'll be picking out all the baby's clothes. She pulls out a baby outfit - they gush. Carrie was reading a pregnancy book and the baby is about this big (she shows with her fingers) but it already has hair and fingernails. Marlena - It's amazing, isn't it? Carrie exclaims - My actual baby is going to wear this. Marlena drops it just as Sami comes along. She offers to help. She looks at the baby outfit. What's going on? She looks at Carrie - You're pregnant. Carrie - Yes I am. Sami - Busy morning; finding out you're pregnant, calling my mom, rushing out to do some baby shopping. Marlena - Don't do this; not here. Sami - Or is it that you've known you were pregnant for a while and my mom has known. That's why Grandma asks me how you're feeling every single day now for weeks. Maybe that's why you've been shopping for homes. Maybe the realtor knows; maybe the girl in the ice cream shop at 2 in the morning. Maybe everybody knows except your sister. Carrie - You're right. Sami - Why didn't you want me to know?
DiMera mansion - Part 1: Spencer and Rafe walk up to the front door. Spencer proclaims that this is not good. Rafe is so glad that he's there to point out the obvious. Spencer - Well there's no way around the fact that your pal Nicole has blown this case sky high. Rafe - So you've said repeatedly. Spencer - What she did constitutes an illegal search. Those bullets she found are fruit of the poisoned tree now. We're in the position of having possible proof against DiMera that we can never use as evidence. Rafe - We'll just have to play our trump card. Spencer - We don't have one. Rafe - We do. DiMera does not know we have those bullets. Let's go. When there's a knock on the door EJ puts Alice's letter into the desk drawer. EJ opens the door to Rafe and Spencer. Something tells me this is not a social call. Rafe thanks him for talking to them again. EJ states that he doesn't really have a choice. Rafe - Of course, you always have a choice. EJ feels there must be something urgent, of devastating importance for them to come into his home the day after he buried his sister. Rafe - You're right. It is of devastating importance. What could be more important than finding the cold blooded killer of one of the most prominent citizens of Salem. And since we are talking about your father, we're actually surprised by the lack of cooperation we've had in this investigation. EJ - You and I see things rather differently. I don't think you are trying to find my father's killer, I just think you're trying to cover your own ineptitude by harassing me. Rafe - I'm sorry you feel that way. EJ - It is the basic M.O. of the SPD, isn't it? Every now and again you put down a bagel and you go and throw baseless accusations at a DiMera. Rafe - I never accused you of anything. EJ - Let me ask you something. When you called Judge Dearborn for a warrant to search this house, what was that, fishing? Rafe - Doing my job. EJ - Oh brother. Knock yourself out. You enjoy your job while you still have it.
Brady Pub - Part 1: Sonny is reading the newspaper when Will joins him and asks if he's still on the front page. No, man, you've been bumped to Pg 3. Will pretends to be upset sure that his family is disappointed that his sexual orientation isn't the lead story anymore. Sonny - Yeah, that was rough. Will - At least I won't have to struggle to find the words to tell the world because it was on Pg 1. Sonny - I think the whole point of the story was to say you were cleared as a murder suspect. Will - Because I was with a gay guy at a gay bar. Do you ever see a newspaper article describe a place as a straight bar? Sonny says that place has seen a spike in business since the news broke; it was good publicity for them. Will - Maybe people are trying to get a look at a murderer. Sonny - People do not think you did it. They think your boss did it. Will - Really? EJ? Sonny - My guess is you think he did it too. Will - I never said I thought EJ shot his father. Sonny - I didn't say you said it, I said you think it. Will - So you can read my mind now? Sonny - No, but I can make my deductions. You did say he was hiding something or keeping some kind of secret. Will - Yeah, but there are secrets other than 'I killed my father'. Sonny - Such as? Will - I don't know because whatever the secret is, he's keeping it a secret. Sonny - So that's what you're working on; trying to find out, aren't you? Will - Yes I am. When I find whatever that is then I'll use that to my advantage. Sonny - So you're going to prove he killed Stefano so I don't have to worry about this anymore. Will - I can't prove what's not true. Sonny - You have to admit that with his history he's a prime suspect. Will - He's done horrible things but Stefano was his father, his flesh and blood and that is everything to the DiMera's.
DiMera mansion - Part 2: Rafe - I know what it's like to lose a sister. Believe me, if this were not part of a murder investigation, I would not be here today. EJ - Right. Rafe - But this is a murder investigation. I am a police officer, you are an elected official; threatening my job is way, way out of line. Not too mention, kind of stupid. Think your pops would make a rookie mistake like that? You are aware that Agent Spencer here reports to the Governor. The Governor's not such a big fan of yours. You can only imagine the political points he'd score with something like this. EJ - Are you threatening me? Rafe - No, I'm just trying to help you not to make a huge mistake while you're understandably off your came. Agent Spencer, why don't we forget about what he said. He is mourning. Spencer - Of course. EJ - When I made that comment earlier, it really wasn't a threat. It was a valid concern. What do you think is going to happen when news of that warrant gets out. What do you think the people and the press are going to say when they find out about this little witch hunt you've been conducting against me? Rafe - Is that what you think it is? EJ - You're hardly impartial when it comes to me and my family. I don't know how I could look at it any other way. With my father gone, the two of you are unable to nail him with all these crimes you keep accusing him of so you do the next best thing, you go after me. Rafe - I know you have a hard time believing this but I'm very sympathetic to your situation. EJ - I find that very comforting. He sits at the chess table and signals for Rafe to sit across from him. Rafe - Here you are, a high profile person with this high profile murder investigation; I have to be honest, I'm not the type of person who believes all publicty is good publicity. EJ - My father was just murdered and I just lost my sister, surely you're not that concerned about publicity. Rafe - I think you're concerned about being an effective mayor. I know I would be if I were in your shoes. It's pretty much all you have left so I would think it would be hard for you to follow through with all those campaign promises with this gigantic cloud hanging over your heard. EJ - If there is a cloud over my head it's because you put it there. Rafe - Really, is that what you think because honestly anyone, no matter who the investigator would be, would make you a suspect in this case. So if I were you I would just do my best to try and clear your name and move on. EJ - I've already told you I did not kill my father. You seem to be determined not to believe me so I'm not sure what else there is I can do. Rafe - Take a lie detector test. Take one today.
Brady Pub - Part 2: Will - When I find out what EJ is hiding I'll have something to negotiate with and get him off my back. Sonny - But you're talking about EJ DiMera. You can't stick your nose in his business. If you find out something he doesn't want you to find, you could be seriously hurt. Will - I work for the guy. I've spent a lot of time with him. I've watched him and learned from him. So if anybody can do this, it's me. Sonny - Are you listening to yourself? Yeah, you might have learned from him but now you're starting to sound like him. Will - Only because I've been forced too. Sonny - I don't like where this is going. Will - I don't either but I don't have a choice. Sonny - Might seem like it but I think you do have a choice. Will replies that he's been backed into a corner. Sonny asks if he can help. Will - You just finished telling me how dangerous EJ is. Sonny - So? Will - What are you going to do? Face off with him and tell him to leave me alone? Sonny - Something like that. Will - No, then you'll be his enemy. This is my fight. Sonny - Why can't a friend help you? Will - What could you do except get your name on EJ's hit list. Sonny - I just want to be by your side. I am a Kiriakis and I have a history of dealing with the DiMera's. And I'm a lawyer's son, btw, so I can help you. A guy walks in and Will gets get to greet 'Brian'. He introduces to his good friend Sonny. Brian - So Will, I haven't seen your around The Spot since old man DiMera was killed, how come?
HTS - Part 2: Marlena tells Sami there's no need to make this confrontational. Sami doesn't want it to be confrontational. I thought it was a simple question. How far along are you? Carrie - A couple of months. Sami - Obviously mom knows, and other people; everybody else knows. Why didn't you tell me? Carrie - I'm sorry. I should have. Sami - Or was it because you were worried that I would ask you the next logical question. Marlena warns - Don't go here. Sami - Who's the father? My husband or yours? Carrie gets sarcastic - Gee, I wonder why I didn't tell you about the baby. I had this crazy thought that you'd take one of the happiest things that has ever happened to me and turn it into something ugly. Because even though you have 4 beautiful children, that's not enough for you. You're still jealous of me. Sami - I am not jealous that you are pregnant. You can have it, I've done it plenty. I just wonder why you're trying to turn things around on me and you're not answering my question about who the father is. Carrie - I don't live my life like you. I don't have to look at the calendar to figure out who the father is. Marlena - Okay, that's enough of that. Sami - So, you take her side again? Carrie - I know Austin is the father. And you know how I know that? Because he's the only man who could be. I never slept with Rafe. Sami scoffs. Carrie - We were both married and marriage vows actually mean something to us. Sami starts talking to Carrie's baby in a negative way. Carrie says - Don't. Sami - Don't tell me what to do. I can talk to you any way I want. You stole my husband. Carrie looks at Marlena - Are you hearing this? Marlena - Time to go. Carrie doesn't budge. The fact that you slept with EJ is why you're not with Rafe. You destroyed your own marriage. I had nothing to do with it so don't you dare blame me.
DiMera mansion - Part 3: EJ - Okay, I don't think that's a bad idea. Rafe - Thank you. I happen to think it's a good idea. EJ - I agree with you. So how would something like this work out? I would just go down to your impartial police station, talk to the trustworthy police force, give up several civil liberties for a test that is inadmissable in a court of law. Thank you Detective, I think you've solved my problem. Rafe - Now that right there is just criminal lawyer, knee-jerk reaction but you're a politician now. Now you've got to look at this another way. This is not an invasion of your privacy, this could be an opportunity for you to connect with your constituents and show them you are not afraid of showing them the truth. EJ - I'm not afraid of showing them the truth. I am rather afraid of the SPD because they seem to have a vendetta against myself and my family. I don't trust you and I don't trust your department not to leak some skewed version of the test results to the press. Rafe - I can promise you confidentiality. EJ - If, and it's a very big if, you could do that, you could not guarantee it. Rafe - Now you see that. That's one of those image problems we were talking about. What if word got out that I asked you to take a lie detector test, offered you confidentiality and you refused. I don't think that's going to sit well with your constituents. EJ - It sounds suspiciously like you're threatening me again. And of course if word of that did get out, there are only three of us in this room so it won't be too hard to figure out where it came from. Rafe - I'm really just trying to help you. You don't care for our questions, you don't care for our solutions, ball's in your court now. EJ - Thank you. I will give that some thought. In the meantime if you'll excuse me, I have some work to do. You can see yourselves out. Rafe - Thanks so much for your time. There is one more thing though. Do you own a gun?
Brady Pub - Part 3: Will says he's been busy lately. Brian - I'll bet, fighting a murder charge and all that. Sonny - Thank God that's all over. Brian - It could have been over a lot sooner, all you had to do was tell the cops where you were that night; at The Spot with me and Neil. Sonny excuses himself. Brian - So why'd you wait so long Will? Will - I knew I was innocent so I figured the truth would come out eventually. Brian - And you too with it. Unless that's what you were really trying to avoid. Will - You know what, you don't really understand the circumstances. Brian - You're right. I don't understand. Will - Then I'll explain it to you. My grandfather is Commissioner, my whole family is on the force basically. Brian - So? Will - So maybe I didn't want to come out to them like that. Hey, I didn't do the shooting, I was at a gay bar drinking Cosmos. Brian - Right there is a lie. You were drinking beer. Will - The point is that I didn't want it in the papers that I was gay. Brian - But that you're a suspected murderer is somehow better? God, Will, think about that. Will - Why are you still on this? I thought this was over. Brian - Because I don't understand why you'd go to such extremes to hide the fact that you're gay. Will - I'm not hiding anything. Brian - Not anymore. If you hadn't been charged with murder .... Brian gets a call that he has to take. He steps away. Will asks Sonny - What is that guy's problem? I swear he's on a freakin' crusade. Sonny - Don't let it bother you. Some people get that way when they feel like someone is uncomfortable with people knowing about them. Will - Yeah but my being gay is only my business. Sonny - I know. Look at it this way. You're a Brady, right? So how do you think you'd feel if someone in your family didn't want other people to know that you were a Brady but you are; for some crazy reason they're ashamed to be associated with you. Will - I'm not ashamed. Sonny - I know you're not. I'm saying that's maybe how it came off to Brian. Will - Whatever. I've got to go. Thank you for not doing what Brian did.
HTS - Part 3: Carrie - You have no claim on Rafe anymore, none at all. If he wanted to go out and get a 100 women pregnant that would be his business, not yours. Sami - You stupid bitch. Carrie - You threw away the best thing that ever, ever happened to you. You threw it away with both hands and you never, ever appreciated Rafe for what he is; a good guy. A guy you could actually count on. But you don't deserve him. Marlena - Carrie! Carrie - You know it's true. I mean when things got tough you just had to run back to EJ; the man who had done such horrible, horrible things to Rafe. Yeah, that's how much you care about your husband, isn't it? Sami - You don't know what you're talking about. I'm out of here. Carrie stops her - Part of me wishes this were Rafe's baby. And you know why? Because after everything you have done to me and to Austin and to Rafe, you would deserve it. Sami goes into attack mode but Marlena steps between them and says that's enough. She turns to Carrie - You have to stop this. Then to Sami - You find out your sister is going to have a baby, a child she and Austin wanted for so long, a child they thought they might never be able to have ... Carrie - Yeah, thanks to your lies. Sami - You really have to bring that up? Marlena - And what is your reaction to it? To say congratulations, I'm so happy for you. I can't wait to see if I have a niece or a nephew. No! You go right for her throat. Sami - She's not a delicate flower mom. I mean she's going to have to go through labour; that's a lot worse than this. Marlena - You have a right to be upset. Your marriage, your family, is falling apart. You need some time to heal. I will be there for you. I will help you through it but this is not the way to do it. Carrie, your sister, is putting her family back together. This baby is a blessing and your part, well nothing has changed as far as you're concerned. You still begrudge her any happiness. Sami - No, I don't. Marlena - Fine. Then you tell her that you're happy for her. Sami - Because you're on her side? Just like you've always been. Team Carrie all the way.
DiMera mansion - Part 4: EJ - Do I own a gun? What sort of question is that? Rafe - A yes or no question. EJ - That is an unnecessary question because we both know the first thing you did when you took over this investigation was check the gun registration of everybody involved. So you know full when that I do not own a gun. Rafe - You're right. Of course I checked the database but I still don't know that you don't own a gun. I know you don't own a registered gun but maybe you own a gun that you forgot to register or maybe you have a gun that the registration was accidentally misplaced. EJ - What are you trying to imply? Rafe - I'm not implying anything. I'm saying there is only so much I can conclude from not finding something. EJ - It's about time you gentlemen left. Rafe - Fair is fair. The question was rather broad so more specifically do you happen to have let's say a 45 caliber lying around, maybe one you forgot to licence? EJ - Do I look like the type of person who'd forget to licence a gun? I'm the mayor so it's my job to uphold the law, not break it. Rafe - That's true. You don't strike me as someone who would forget to licence a gun. EJ - Then why do you ask this question. Rafe - Dotting all the i's and crossing all the t's. Thank you for your time. If you change your mind about that lie detector test, give me a call. They leave.
Brady Pub - Part 4: Brian joins Sonny and comments that Will left. Sonny - Sure looks like it. Don't you think you were a little hard on him? Brian - I think the bigger question is why weren't you? Aren't you all Mr. Out and Proud? Sonny - Maybe but that's me not Will. I've had a lot more time to adjust than he has so I don't force him to be somebody he's not. Brian - Why not? He's really good at it. Sonny - That's not fair. Brian - Will is gay, gay as you, gay as me, but he'd rather people believe he killed that DiMera guy than know the truth about him. Hanging out with a bunch of gay guys is worse than being charged with murder. You get how messed up that is, right? Sonny - You don't know anything about him or what he's been through. Brian - But you do? Sonny - Yeah I do and I think you should cut him some slack. It wasn't easy for him to come out. Brian - He's out now. I just wish he realised that's a good thing. Sonny - He will eventually. Brian - After you're done mentoring him? I see the way you look at Will. You're into him, that's why cut him so much slack. Sonny - He's a good friend of mine. Brian - But you wish he was more than that. It's cool, I get it. He's hot. I'd want the same thing but someone like Will comes with a lot of baggage. Good luck. He leaves.
DiMera mansion - Part 5: EJ quicky stuffs Alice's letter in the drawer when he hears Will's voice. When EJ points out that he's late Will apologises. Was that Rafe going out of the driveway. EJ - Yeah, just throwing around unwarranted accusations and grasping at straws. Will smirks - Did he get to you a little bit? EJ - No he did not. Take a lie detector test, please! As if I have anything to hide. Will - Don't you? EJ - I think you should be rather careful about how you speak to me. Whatever secret you think you have on me I can assure you it's nothing compared to the secret I have on you. Will - I know. Thanks for that. You're just looking out for me; it's not blackmail or anything like that. EJ - What I'm doing is teaching you. Your actions have consequences. Will - Except if you're a DiMera. EJ - I'd be very careful about how you speak to me, seriously. You'd do well to remember that I'm the person who bailed you out of jail. I'm the person who instructed you in how to communicate with the police so they would recognise you were not responsible for my father's murder. So whether you like it or not, I'm the best friend you have. If you push me I may be inclined to drop you as a friend. And I can assure you William, the police would be very interested to know that you tried to kill me. There is no statue of limitations on attempted murder. Will - I could use temporary insanity as a defence although it was one of the saner moments of my life. EJ - You have some of your mother in you. You're very lucky that I like your mother. You're both at your defiant best when you're up the creek without a paddle. Stop smiling. He instructs him to finish up something and then walks out of the room. Will sits at the desk and opens the laptop. He notices a drawer is partially open.
Police Station - Part 1: Rafe - I think that went quite well. I knew EJ wasn't going to agree to a lie detector test. Spencer - So why did you bring it up? Rafe - To see how he'd react; see if I could get him to slip up. Spencer - Or maybe it's just fun to stick it to him. Rafe - Alright. You've forced me to tell you something personal. I don't like the guy. Spencer drolly replies - Thanks for sharing. I never would have guessed. Did you notice I didn't say much this time. Rafe - No. Spencer - You're not one for having a partner. Rafe - Sorry if I hurt your feelings. Spencer - Please! Let's get one thing straight Hernandez. You're a good detective. I'm here for a reason so from now on no more stunts. Rafe - I wasn't aware I had pulled one. Spencer - That whole lie detector idea; you made it sound you thought of it in the spur of the moment but we both know that's not true. You went in there today expecting DiMera to back himself into a corner before suggesting it, didn't you? Rafe - Of course I had a plan. Spencer - From now on, run your plans by me first, would you? Rafe - Fine. You have to admit it was a good idea. Spencer - No, it wasn't. Rafe - It was. Spencer smiles - It was great.
HTS - Part 4: Marlena - I'm so tired of these accusations. I don't play favourites and you know that. Sami - This has been going on practically my entire life. You wish she were your daughter and not me because she is perfect and I fly off the handle and overreact to things. You know what, I don't think you can overreact to your own sister stealing your husband. Carrie - You drove him away. Sami - Yes. I made a mistake that my mother and my sister made before me. I was unfaithful but you know what, I wanted to work on my marriage. I wanted to figure out how we could get through it but I couldn't because you were in the way. Because you made sure that wasn't possible. You were with Rafe ... I know my sister Rafe, she's so evil. Carrie - Come on I didn't say that. Sami - Whatever helps you sleep it at night but you said one thing that was true today. You said you wished that baby were Rafe's. That wasn't some random thought; it came straight from your heart. Good luck with that. Marlena calls out Sami's name and goes after her. Marlena returns to Carrie. I'm sorry. She just kept going; she wouldn't stop. Listen to me. You are to ignore what she said. She's only lashing out. Carrie - I can't ignore what she said because part of it might be true. Maybe she and Rafe didn't work things out because of me. Marlena - We don't know that's true and even if it were it doesn't matter now. What matters now is that you and your husband recommitted to each other. Carrie - I'm committed to making our making or marriage work but it's not that easy. It's not easy at all. If I weren't pregnant with this baby, if it wasn't Austin's baby ... Marlena - I know. There's no sense in overstating the obvious; this is going to take some time. Carrie - To get over Rafe, is that what you mean? I know that's what I should be doing and I know it's what I have to do. She cries. I don't know if I can.
Police Station - Part 2: Rafe - I knew EJ was going to refuse to take that lie detector test. Seeing his face when I asked him the question, priceless. Spencer - I like how he reacted when you so casually asked him about owning a gun. Rafe - You see, that's what I'm saying. These things are starting to add up. Spencer - Up to a point. Just don't be so convinced that you've got your suspect and neglect to focus on the other equally viable suspects. Rafe - What other suspects? You mean anyone DiMera ever met. Spencer tells him not to focus exclusively on EJ. He's going to check in with the Governor. I'm sure he's already received a call from EJ complaining about you. Rafe - No surprise there. Give the honourable my best. Spencer leaves and Sami storms in. How long have you known Carrie was pregnant?
DiMera mansion - Part 6: Will gets up and checks if EJ is near by. He then pulls the letter out of the drawer and reads it. OMG!
I was afraid you weren't going to do it today. My printer's warmed up and ready to go.
