[From different sides of the room, Zach, Kendall, and David train their guns on Adam who's standing in his study]
Opal: Krystal, what are you doing? Did you come through the house?
Krystal: It's bad, Opal. It's bad.
Opal: No, is it with Tad?
Aidan: What's going on?
[Opal and Krystal scream]
[In the study, Adam falls to the floor with a loud thump]
Kendall's voice: You better not say a word, Adam. If you do --
David's voice: You are through messing with my life, destroying lives, people I love. I promise you, Adam, I will come to you in the dead of night.
Krystal's voice: I've got nothing left.
Zach's voice: If my son doesn't make it --
Krystal's voice: Because of you.
Zach's voice: And if anything happens to my son because of it, if he suffers one second, I will kill you.
J.R.'s voice: It's not going to be easy.
David's voice: I will kill you.
J.R.'s Voice: You square in --
Krystal's voice: I swear I will kill you.
David's voice: You will go to hell with my smile burned into your eyes.
Adam's voice: I must die for all I've done to all of you.
[Using only their flashlights to see with, Jesse and his officers enter Chandler Mansion with guns drawn]
Jesse: It's clear. I want you to cover this floor first, be careful. I've got a body in the living room, shot in the back.
Kendall: Wait, wait, wait, Ryan, no, no, I -- I can't just leave him there. I can't leave him. We have to go back.
Ryan: If the cops find us, Kendall, we got to go.
Kendall: No, I will not leave him. I will not leave him.
Ryan: Ian is alive.
Kendall: What? What, what are you talking about?
Ryan: He's alive, ok? He's alive, and he needs you, Kendall. Come on, let's go, let's go.
Jesse: Looks like the shot came from the terrace. Police! Don't move!
Officer: He's got a gun --
[Jesse shoots multiple times through the terrace door]
Jesse: Tad, come on. Oh, my God. Call an ambulance!
Officer: We need a bus, 300 River Road.
Jesse: Go, go, go.
Opal: Don't shoot.
Krystal: Is -- is he --
Officer: The chief told you two to wait in the car.
Scott: I just heard shots. Is everybody --
Officer: Don't move!
Scott: I don't have a gun. Let me -- let me help my uncle.
Officer: You can't help him.
Jesse's voice: Where's that damn ambulance? Man's bleeding to death out here!
Krystal: Someone else got shot?
Officer: Suspect trying to -- lady, wait! You guys -- you can't -- wait! This is a crime scene.
Jesse: You shouldn't be out here.
Officer: I tried to stop them, sir.
Krystal: Who did this? You?
Opal: Tad, no, no, no, no.
Jesse: The ambulance is going to be here any second, all right? Get out there. You meet them, and you send them right back here. Secure the crime scene.
Opal: How could you do this to my son, to your best friend, how?
Jesse: Opal, Opal, it was dark. I thought he was the shooter.
Opal: Well, you thought wrong. Tad did not come here to put a bullet in Adam. He came here to stop J.R. from doing it.
Officer: You can't come in here.
Scott: J.R. --
Scott: Adam's gone, J.R.
J.R.: Get off me!
Scott: Come on, J.R. --
Scott: J.R., he was shot in the back.
Scott: Look at me, look at me! Your father's dead. I'm sorry.
J.R.: What? Wha --? Oh my -- You did it. Didn't you? You just couldn't wait to get your hands on Chandler Enterprises. Little A. Little A? Little A!
Aidan: Hey, buddy, Emma was just here, right? Where did she go?
Little Adam: I don't know.
Aidan: You sure?
J.R.: You ok, buddy? You're ok, yeah. I'll be right back, ok?
Aidan: Look, I can explain why I'm here, all right?
J.R.: No, I know what you're doing, ok. You're looking for that crazy Annie.
Aidan: You saw her?
J.R.: Oh yeah, I saw her. She had that gun --
Colby: J.R., I need your help. Emma wandered off. I can't find her anywhere. What are you doing here?
J.R.: Colby, Emma didn't wander off anywhere. Annie kidnapped her right after she put -- right after she put a bullet in Dad.
Colby: Wha -- what happened? Is Dad ok?
J.R.: Come here, come here. No, that's why I need you to stay right here, ok? Just stay right here, really, all right? Ok? Stay here.
Colby: How can he not be ok? Where are you going?
J.R.: I just going to -- I'm going to get the cops, all right?
[Aidan escapes out the window]
Opal: I knew this was coming. I saw it, clear as day, Tad's head all covered with blood.
Krystal: Opal -- Opal, sit down. Sit down.
Opal: But in my vision, he was alive. Now I see him slipping away.
Krystal: No, no, Tad is not going anywhere. He has two little girls, and they need him.
Opal: This is all my fault, Krystal. I never should have let him get anywhere near this house of horrors.
Krystal: You are not the reason why he's here. If -- if it's anybody's fault --
Opal: Who's that?
[Running footsteps across the terrace]
Jesse: Could have been Adam's killer.
Krystal: Krystal, keep pressure on his wounds until the paramedics -- Krystal!
Opal: I've got it, I've got it.
Opal: Don't worry, shh. Just be careful.
Krystal: It's ok, it's ok. He's going to be all right.
Jesse: Another suspect just took off across the back lawn. He's headed west. I need you to get out there and call for back up. I want this guy locked up.
Officer: You got it, Chief.
J.R.: The guy that you're looking for is Aidan. He's working with Annie. She's the one that -- shot my dad.
Jesse: Annie is halfway across the globe, J.R. Interpol is watching her.
J.R.: Really, I just saw her in my house with a gun!
Jesse: You been drinking?
J.R.: God! Emma is missing from the nursery! I went up there to check on my son, and Aidan was interrogating him. When I told him I was going to get the cops, he jumped out the window.
Jesse: I need you to put an APB out on Annie Lavery, and issue an Amber Alert for her daughter, Emma. Where does that tunnel go?
Scott: That could lead to a couple of places on the property.
J.R.: No, it only goes to one place. That's the garden. Some of it got caved in during the tornado. If you come with me, I'll show you.
Jesse's voice: All officers, suspect is headed for the garden. I repeat, suspect is headed for the garden.
Officer: Chief, this is Bailey. I'm in the garden. I got two sets of footprints, one male, one female, over.
Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Kendall: No, no, no, Ryan, I need to see Ian. I need to see him.
Ryan: I know, but not yet, not yet --
Kendall: No, no, listen to me. I thought he was dead, ok? I need to hold him. I need to feel his heart beating. And I need to remember why we did this.
Ryan: There could be a cop outside Ian's door, ok? You need to clean your shoes off, they're muddy. They're going to see the mud, they're going to know that you were --
Kendall: I don't care, I don't care. I don't give a damn, Ryan.
Ryan: Really, you want them to put you in jail? Kendall, is that what you want right now?
Kendall: Maybe they'll arrest me anyway.
Ryan: They won't arrest you anyway because you didn't kill Adam, Zach did.
David: I need your assistance, please.
Gayle: Of course, Doctor Hayward. If this is about Mr. Chandler firing me --
David: Adam Chandler is dead.
Gayle: Did he overdose on pills?
David: No, gunshot wound.
Gayle: How can I help?
David: All right, if anyone comes around here asking questions, you tell them that we were together tonight. Can you handle that?
Gayle: On one condition -- we actually do spend the night together, all night.
[David kisses Gayle]
David: Soon, very soon.
Kendall: Oh, thank God. Oh, thank God.
Angie: We were able to resuscitate him and put him back on the ecmo machine.
Kendall: How long did his heart stop?
Angie: Several minutes. We were giving him oxygen, and chest compressions kept the blood flowing to his brain.
Kendall: Thank you so much. Thank you for saving my beautiful boy.
Angie: Sweetheart, you know, as much as I try to separate the two, I'm as much a mother as I am a doctor, and I know -- I know what it's like to want to have your child back healthy and whole. But you know, it's really Jake you need to thank, because he refused to give up.
Kendall: I -- I still can't believe this. I mean, I really, really thought that he was gone.
Angie: Yeah, we all thought we'd lost him. Jake performed a true miracle. And I have to tell you, Kendall, you know, before that, when Zach came in to say goodbye, and he took Ian's tiny hand, and seeing how much that man loves his son, it broke my heart. Jesse tried to find you and Zach, you know, and give you the good news, but you were gone. I really hate to think that he is still lost in all that grief.
Ryan: I'm sure Zach is just fine. He can pretty much handle whatever comes his way.
Kendall: Uh, how -- how are the kids?
Ryan: Well, I haven't been able to get in touch with Colby. She's probably still dealing with Little A and Emma but Corinna put Spike down hours ago -- ok?
Jake: We have a critical coming in from the Chandler Mansion.
Angie: Any word on the victim?
Jake: Just that it's, uh -- male, and it's a gunshot wound.
Kendall: Ryan, if Adam survives he'll -- he'll talk. He knows everything. We have to find Jesse right now.
Ryan: Let Zach handle the cops, ok?
Kendall: No, you don't understand. Adam saw me at his house with a gun. If Adam talks, Ian will lose both his parents.
Ryan: Adam's not going to talk. I'll make sure of that.
J.R.: My God, what the hell happened?
Opal: You happened, that's what. Tad got shot trying to keep you out of trouble.
Krystal: Oh, my God.
Jesse: Whoa, whoa, whoa, I need to ask the two of you a few questions.
J.R.: I already told you, Annie killed my father. What else do you want to know?
Officer: Chief --
Jesse: Um -- what was Tad doing with this?
[Zach makes sure an officer sees him running by the gate, then fires his gun in the air]
Officer's voice: Hold it, hold it right there! Come out where I can see you.
Jesse: Come in. Any available officer, come in now.
Officer's voice: Chief, this is Bailey.
Jesse: Bailey, I heard a gunshot. It sounded like it came from the front gate. I can't get any response.
Bailey's voice: On my way.
Jesse: Come in. Come in, officers at the front gate, come in, damn it.
Zach: Coming out.
Officer's voice: Toss the gun, and come out slowly. Turn around, hands behind your head.
[Gun hitting the ground]
Officer: On the ground, on the ground. Chief, at the gate, suspect in custody.
Jesse: What about the girl? Any sign of Emma Lavery?
[Everyone speaking at once as Tad and Adam are brought into the hospital on stretchers]
Angie: Page Dr. Steele in Neuro right away.
Opal: Please --
Jake: Tad. Who shot my brother?
Opal: Thought he saw a shadow on the Chandler terrace, assumed it was Adam's killer, fired away.
Jake: Tad? Can you hear me?
Officer: I'm going to need the bullet you pulled out of Chandler's back. We need to see if it matches the weapon found on the scene.
Jesse's voice: Dispatch additional units to the Chandler Mansion. I need all officers on the lookout for the missing child.
Ryan: Whoa, whoa, whoa, a child is missing from Chandler's?
Officer: A little girl, taken by her own mother.
Officer: Chief, where do you want this guy?
Jesse: Slater, where's Annie? Where's -- where's Devane?
Officer: I haven't seen him. This guy who shot at me by the gate.
Jesse: Who else is here in the house?
J.R.: Colby's with Little Adam, that's it.
Jesse: I want you to take these three to the library, hold them there for questioning.
J.R.: Chief, I want to go to the hospital.
Jesse: Yeah, so do I, but I got work to do. Listen, I'm going to need your cooperation so this investigation, unlike some others, gets done right. Get Colby to come downstairs, you stay with the little boy.
Female Officer: Ok.
Jesse: Bailey, go get those lights back on. Find out what happened. You, I need everybody else to spread out, find that little girl. And you are here because --
Zach: I came to kill Adam.
Colby: Daddy! I want my daddy!
Scott: It's ok.
Colby: Why did she have to kill him? Why couldn't Annie just take Emma and go?
J.R.: Maybe that was her plan, and Dad tried to stop her.
Colby: So, she shot him?
J.R.: It wouldn't be the first time that lunatic killed someone who got in her way.
Scott: What makes you so sure it was this Annie person?
J.R.: Because I saw her with a gun right before my dad got shot.
Scott: But you didn't stop her. Why? You too drunk?
J.R.: Come on, Scott. I was sobered up by then.
[J.R. recalls a woman throwing a glass of water at his face]
Scott: You were passed out, but Annie wakes you up, so you would know that she was stealing Emma? Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
J.R.: What? You a got a better theory there, Chandler?
Scott: Yeah. There's a guy out there in handcuffs. We risked his son's life. Did you honestly think that Zach wouldn't make us pay?
Zach: I came in through the terrace. The parlor was empty. I went to the foyer. That's when I saw the gun. I searched the rest of the house, and then finally found Adam back here, in the parlor.
Jesse: And then what? Finally. Then what, Zach?
Zach: I heard someone coming, I went out the house, and then around to the terrace, so I could get a better shot, and then I fired.
Jesse: And you killed Adam.
Zach: He killed my son.
Jesse: Your son is not dead, Zach.
Kendall: You just rest, my strong little man. Mama's here. Daddy's with you, too. No matter what, we will always be with you. And I'm so sorry, baby. We underestimated you. I should have known you'd have the strength to hang on. But when your heart stopped beating, ours did too, and after everything you've been through, after what they did to you, we had to get justice. Oh, my God. Oh, my God, what have we done?
Ryan: It's going to be ok. It's going to be ok.
Kendall: Ryan, Adam saw me.
Ryan: Adam was brought to the hospital in a body bag, Kendall.
Kendall: No, no, no, no, no, no. Jake said he was in critical condition.
Ryan: Jake -- Jake was talking about Tad. Jesse saw somebody sneaking around the mansion. He thought he was the killer.
Kendall: My God, is Tad ok?
Ryan: They don't know yet. They don't know. No word yet.
Kendall: Well, what about Zach? I mean, if he's not a suspect, then why isn't he here?
Ryan: I can't really think about Zach right now. Annie took Emma, and I've got to go and I've got to find my daughter.
Zach: What did you say? Ian is alive?
Jesse: Yeah. He's alive, Zach.
Zach: Ok. Take these off me. I've got to go.
Jesse: Hey, whoa, whoa.
Zach: I've got to go see my son.
Jesse: You're not going anywhere until I'm done with you, ok? I'm tired of you running all over me like this.
Officer: Someone broke into the box, tripped all the breakers -- had to reset them all.
Jesse: Any sign of Annie? Emma?
Officer: So far, we got nothing. All right, get back out there. They can't have gotten far.
Zach: How is he doing?
Jesse: Well, when I left the hospital he was stable.
Zach: My boy's stable, and you won't let me see him, because I killed the man that tried to kill my boy.
Jesse: Listen to me. Listen. Hey, hey, hey, come on. Zach, emotion took over, right? You flew into a rage. You came here with the express order to kill Adam. Then you stopped to turn off the lights. You shoot him in the back -- I don't know. It doesn't make sense to me.
Zach: Why doesn't it make sense to you -- why?
Jesse: Because you were on a mission to shoot him in the head -- look him in the eyes, shoot him in the head. That didn't happen. He was shot in the back -- coward style. You're not coward. You want to tell me what the real story is? I saw you at the hospital when your boy flatlined, Zach. You flew into a blind rage. The only thing on your mind was to get here, kill Adam. Why am I going to believe that you would stop at the fuse box first?
Zach: Other people in the house -- women and children.
Jesse: Yeah. That kind of thinking, you know, that's kind of logical, rational. All you had on your mind was that your boy was dead. There's no rationale after that.
Zach: I told you what happened.
Jesse: You're lying, Zach. You lie to me all the time. I have proof.
Zach: You have evidence. My fingerprints on the murder weapon, powder burns on my hand, motive.
Jesse: You and everybody else in this town had motive. Everybody wanted to see Adam Chandler dead.
J.R.: Slater wanted my dad dead, but a bullet in the back? No. That's not his style.
Scott: Well, maybe he wanted to throw off the cops -- get them sniffing around someone else.
J.R.: Who? Annie? Zach didn't know that she would be here.
Scott: Maybe he wanted to frame one of us. Think about it. Aside from Colby, everybody in this room had a motive. Adam blackmailed Krystal to get custody of Little A. You thought that he might have killed Dixie. I'm in line for Chandler Enterprises --
J.R.: Will you just stop it? I told you who did it. Just keep your mouth shut.
Scott: J.R., we are all suspects. That's why there's a cop outside this door making sure we don't leave.
Krystal: All right, stop it, ok? This isn't some game -- "Who shot Adam in the parlor with a gun."
Scott: I want to make sure that the right person goes down for murdering my uncle.
Krystal: This isn't some mystery that needs solving. Zach Slater shot at a police officer while running from this house. Does that sound like an innocent man to you? No. Case closed.
J.R.: Slater takes the fall. Well, that would work out perfectly for you, wouldn't it? Where were you when my dad got shot?
Krystal: Don't even start, J.R.
J.R.: When I came home tonight you were holding a gun on him.
Krystal: And when I left, you were holding a gun on him.
Colby: That's not true.
Krystal: Colby, I'm very sorry, but there's a very good chance that your brother did this.
Scott: Hey, Krystal, back off.
Colby: J.R. would never shoot our dad.
J.R.: But Hayward would. That's why Krystal wants this wrapped up real quick. She knows that if we think about it, we'll realize that David had more motive than any one of us.
Krystal: My husband is not a killer.
J.R.: Come on, would you look at the facts? A bullet in the back? That's classic Hayward. The tunnel door was left open. David practically lives in our walls. Plus, I saw him at the front gate. That gun that I had? I took it right out of his hand.
[Krystal recalls talking to her husband]
David: And why shouldn't I be the one to end it? Just go the hell home.
Krystal: No, no, no, no, no, no. You can't. You cannot go over there.
David: I'm not giving you a choice. Adam is dead man.
Krystal: I saw David, too. I ran into him in the garden after I left. He was headed for the mansion, but he turned around.
J.R.: How do you know?
Krystal: He got an urgent call from the hospital, and he took off. David hasn't been in this house all night.
Little Adam: Yes, he has.
Jake: Ok. So, is this my brother's CAT scan?
Dr. Steele: The bullet is lodged in the anterior frontal lobe.
David: A rather precarious spot.
Dr. Steele: If we remove it, there's a good chance your brother will come out of surgery a very different man.
Jake: Well, if we don't remove it, he'll come out of there a dead man. I'd rather see him alive and a little different than very dead and in a box. I'm sure his children would agree.
Dr. Steele: We'll get him prepped.
David: All right.
Jake: I'll scrub in.
David: No, that's not going to happen, Doctor. You're too close to this case. If Dr. Steele needs assistance, I will provide it.
Jake: Really? And let me ask you this, what if we did let you root around in my brother's brain? That is the last thing he would ever want in this life.
David: That's you're opinion, Doctor. Unfortunately, your brother is not able to provide his own at this moment.
Jake: Well, you're just going to have to take my word for it, aren't you?
David: You're wasting valuable time. Why don't you go sit and wait in the waiting area with Opal?
Jake: Or you'll what? You'll have me fired again? I don't really care. All I care about is saving my brother's life.
David: So, why don't you do him a big favor. Stay away from the OR.
Erica: You're here.
Kendall: Yeah, of course, I'm here. Where else would I be?
Erica: He's all right. Look, I had several messages from the hospital. They were looking for you and Zach, and they didn't know where either one of you were.
Kendall: Well, the doctors prepared us for the worst, and we really thought it was here. So, I needed some air, and I went up to the roof.
Erica: For how long?
Kendall: I don't know, Mom. I didn't know there was a search party out. I mean, if you really needed me, why didn't you just call?
Erica: Because I was in a hot bath, and I had my phone turned off. I just got my messages myself now.
Kendall: So, you haven't talked to anyone?
Erica: About what?
Kendall: Adam. He's dead. Ryan was in the ER when they brought in his body. Adam was murdered.
Erica: How awful.
Kendall: You already knew.
Opal: He's going to be all right. He has to be.
Angie: Listen, Dr. Steele is a brilliant neurosurgeon.
Jake: Tad shouldn't need surgery.
Angie: I am absolutely sure that there is a reasonable explanation.
Jake: You think he was angry enough to try to kill Adam?
Opal: Well, no. But J.R. sure was.
J.R.: You saw Grandpa David here tonight?
Little Adam: He took me up to my bed when the lights went out.
J.R.: Did Grandpa David come to the house to see you?
Little Adam: No, Grandpa Adam.
Officer: Sorry, buddy. No one comes in. No one goes out.
Ryan: Look, Officer Bailey, my daughter is missing, ok?
Officer Bailey: Emma Lavery? Yeah, we searched the whole property. No sign of the girl -- no sign of her mother.
Ryan: Well, then where the hell is she?
Aidan: Annie? Emma? You still here?
[Aidan finds Annie's passport still in the basement]
[The wall in the Chandler's linen closet moves, signifying that someone is hiding in the mansion's tunnels]
Ryan: Look, I know you searched the house, but this is my daughter that we're talking about here, so I need to see for myself.
Officer Bailey: Listen, buddy, I am under strict orders --
[Ryan punches the officer down and runs onto the Chandler property]
Jesse: I know there's a lot more to the story, but I can wait as long it takes for you to give it up.
[Zach recalls Kendall's promise]
Kendall: If Ian dies, I'll kill Adam.
Jesse: I know you're angry. You just lost your boy, but killing Adam is not going to bring him back. You hear me? Listen to me, listen to me. There's still time, Zach. If you want to take back your confession, I will erase everything, and we'll start over. Ready to tell the truth?
[Front door closes and Ryan appears in the room]
