Tad: You're going to sit there and tell me you didn't find our evening at the Philharmonic inspiring?
Liza: No, I didn't.
Tad: You're lying.
Liza: No. But the night with you was kind of magical.
Tad: Well --
Tad: It's getting kind of late.
Liza: Yes, it is. And, uh, well, I would invite you back to my place, but would you believe my heat is out? It's kind of like an igloo in there.
Tad: Well, there's nothing wrong with the heat in my house. I mean, the man cave isn't exactly the most romantic place in the world --
Liza: No, but it sounds kind of perfect actually.
Krystal: Ah, well, glad we finally made it to that movie.
Rob: We'll have to do it again. Soon.
Krystal: Yeah. You know, um, it looks like everybody's gone to bed, so -- we could have a nightcap. Or -- ha! It's obvious I haven't done this in a long time.
Rob: I had a great time, but I should get going. Big meeting tomorrow.
Krystal: Oh, that's right. That's right. You have to go over the designs for the cafe.
Rob: I want to be prepared. I've got thing for the owner.
Krystal: Well, then good night it is. Ha ha. Bye.
[Knock on door]
Rob: That was nice.
Krystal: Yeah, yeah, it sure was.
Rob: But I think I can do better.
[Rob kisses Krystal]
J.R.: Are you ok?
Marissa: Um -- no, I am definitely not ok.
J.R.: What happened?
Marissa: Uh, David. He admitted everything. And now I finally see what everyone has been telling me all all along. My father is a monster.
David: I came by to tell you and Jake that I'm sorry.
[Jake begins punching David out]
Jake: No. It's his turn. What's up, Dave? Welcome to our house, Dave. That's right. How does it feel, huh? Huh?
Amanda: Ok, Jake!
Jake: You like hurting people? Stop it. Do you? Do you like it?
Amanda: Ok, ok, baby, stop!
Jake: Do you like how it feels when you hurt people?
Natalia: Coffee, black, please.
Brot: Make that two.
Natalia: I'm beat.
Brot: Well, you can always go home and take a nap if you're too tired.
Natalia: Nice try, but I think that this caffeine will give me a second wind. I'm gonna nail this guy.
Brot: I'll tell you, Natalia, whoever this guy is he's pretty risky. I mean, come on, one break-in after another.
Natalia: Right. Well, you'd think he'd change it up, but no, he stays with the same thing every time. I mean, he breaks in, the alarm goes off, we get there, he's gone.
Police dispatcher over radio: We have a burglar alarm at 3900 Glenview Road. Repeat, 3900 Glenview Road.
Natalia: That's Wildwind. Let's roll. Come on.
Marissa: I've been so stupid, enough to think that I was special. You know, I'm his daughter, he wouldn't hurt me.
J.R.: Well, unfortunately in David's twisted world, everyone's fair game.
Marissa: He's not dying. He faked the whole thing knowing what I had been through with my adoptive parents, and knowing what we're going through, and he knew that Trevor wasn't his son. I just -- I just don't understand.
J.R.: You started having doubts when we were waiting on Trevor's DNA results. I mean, after everything that David's pulled, this can't really surprise you.
Marissa: It doesn't.
J.R.: Then what don't you understand?
Marissa: How can I still care about David? What is wrong with me?
J.R.: There's nothing wrong with you. You're always gonna feel that way because he's your father. It's the same thing with Adam. You want to love him because you have that connection.
Marissa: But I can't.
J.R.: Then don't. Fight it. Take it from me, if you love your father too much, it'll ruin your life.
Amanda: Jake, please stop!
[Jake stops strangling David]
Amanda: Don't. Don't apologize. Don't thank me. I was not defending you. I will never defend you again. You're not dying, are you, Dave?
Amanda: You know, that's how we found out. We never would have even tested Trevor's DNA if you hadn't lied about being sick. Your own scheme screwed you up.
David: I just came by to tell you that --
Amanda: Just stop. Don't. Just leave. You have nothing here.
[David stumbles out]
Jake: He needs to suffer. He needs to suffer like we did.
Amanda: He will. He has nothing and no one. He's going to spend the rest of his pathetic life alone and miserable.
Jake: That's not enough.
Amanda: So you want to beat him to death?
Amanda: Jake, why? Why does it matter if David is alive or not, you know? I hope I never see him again, but if we do, who cares? We are done with him.
Jake: Do you honestly think that he came here to apologize? Do you believe that? That bastard has been controlling our life for months. He has no intention of backing off. He wants to stay right in the middle of our life. That's what he wants to do. He wants to stay in it and battle us for as long as he possibly can.
Amanda: Well, you keep the battle going by hitting him. He could call the cops or get a lawyer.
Jake: So I'll call the cops. I'll get a lawyer. I can sue him. I should sue him. I'm gonna sue him for damages that he caused this family. I am. I'm gonna sue him.
Amanda: Jake, please, just let this go. Please.
Jake: How am I supposed to let it go? How are we supposed to let it go? I don't understand that. We need to stand up for ourselves. We need to show the world what this guy is made out of and what he did to us. Amanda, as far as I am concerned, he raped you.
Amanda: I really just want this all to be over with.
Jake: So do I, so do I. That's -- that's why he has to go away for good.
Tad: I think everybody's asleep.
Liza: Oh, this brings back memories. You and me, sneaking around in the dark, right? Then all of a sudden we'd be in there, pop, the lights would go on, and we would -- oh.
[Liza and Tad walk in on Krystal and Rob making out on the couch]
[Alarm blares then stops]
Natalia: There's nobody here. The house looks fine.
Brot: Our guy changed his M.O. He jimmied the lock on the front door instead of a broken window. Hey, take a look at this.
Natalia: Melted snow.
Brot: Perp took a look around before he left.
Natalia: But didn't take anything.
Brot: It's a brand-new computer. He had to have walked right by it.
Natalia: Yeah, this is Officer Fowler with Cadet Monroe. I'm at 3900 Glenview investigating a break in. We need a fingerprint specialist over here.
Police dispatcher over radio: Copy that.
Krystal: Hi. Rob and I came back from the movie, and we turned on the news. I guess we just fell asleep.
Tad: Yeah, and when you were asleep, your lips fell, and they slipped and fell all over his face. And I guess -- I guess it was Mama that came downstairs and turned the television off.
Krystal: Ok, ok, so what about you two tiptoeing around?
Tad: No, no, it wasn't like that. Listen, no, the heat's off in Liza's building, and I thought she could crash on the couch, which is clearly not gonna happen because it's ocupado.
Krystal: Oh, well, no. You know what, the couch is yours. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm actually feeling a little bit beat right now.
Rob: Walk me out?
Krystal: Yeah, come on.
Tad: Ha ha!
Krystal: Sorry. Liza, no, it's ok. I am so sorry.
Rob: Don't be. I like going out with you. It's never dull.
Krystal: See you tomorrow.
Rob: All right.
Krystal: Are you kidding me? Come on, now. Who are you trying to fool here?
Liza: No, really. My heat is off.
Krystal: Oh, ok.
Liza: It is.
Krystal: A drop of truth in an ocean of lies.
Tad: Oh, please, what do you expect? You honestly want us to believe that you and Frank Lloyd Lipstick fell asleep watching the news? Give me a break.
Krystal: It's -- what's --
Tad: Hang on.
Tad: Yeah, Amanda, what's up?
Amanda: It's Jake. David dropped by our place. Your brother beat the crap out of him.
Tad: Well, after what David pulled with Trevor, what do you expect?
Amanda: I thought this was all over. Jake took one look at David, and he went nuts.
Tad: Where are they now?
Amanda: David left. I tried to get Jake to drop it, but he took off.
Tad: I'll find him. Don't worry.
Liza: What's going on?
Tad: Well, apparently Jake had it out with Hayward all over again. You do know your wife is worried about you?
[Jake walks in and slams the door]
Jake: Well, she's not the one who should be worried.
Tad: Oh, come on, Jake, look. Sounds like you got a couple of good shots in. Trevor's your biological son. Why don't you just forget about it. It's over.
Jake: I'm not gonna forget about it. It's not over till that son of a bitch is gone.
Tad: Look, why don't you sit down and relax. I'll get us a couple of beers --
Jake: We need to get rid of Hayward.
David: I assume Jake Martin called you. What did he accuse me of this time?
Natalia: No. Nobody called us. Your burglar alarm went off, and the intruder broke your lock.
Brot: What happened to your face?
David: I ran into a wall. Clumsy me, huh? Listen, is this gonna take long?
Natalia: We need you to take a look around, see if there's anything missing.
David: All right, fine. Look, why don't I call you later, all right? Are we through here?
Policeman: Just a partial. No help.
Police dispatcher over radio: All units, we have a stolen vehicle report, 300 River Road.
Brot: Isn't that the Chandlers' mansion?
Natalia: Yeah. We got to go. I'll be expecting a call.
J.R.: When you're a kid, you look at your parents with this awe, like they're superheroes. But in the end, you realize that they're just human like everyone else.
Marissa: Why are you saying that? I should forgive David?
J.R.: For being human? Sure. For being evil? Never.
Marissa: I hope I never stop looking up to you.
J.R.: Well, you haven't bailed on me yet, so I'm thinking there's a pretty good chance.
[J.R. and Marissa kiss]
[David dresses his facial wounds, then picks up his picture of Trevor and tears up]
Tad: Look, just forget about Hayward, ok? Move on.
Jake: I was in my house. With my wife. And we're putting our son down for the night. My son. It's the first moment we are a real family. And there's a knock on the door. Who do you think it is? It's him pretending that he's there to apologize. But that's not at all why he's there. He's there to show me that he is really still right in the middle of our life, that he is willing and able to take my family apart.
Tad: You got to stay calm.
Jake: Don't tell me to stay calm! You want to help me? Tell me how to take this anger and this hatred and do something with it, how to fight with that.
Tad: Do me a favor. Go find Amanda. Tell her that he is here and that everything will be ok, all right?
Tad: So I guess we're just, well, gonna have to wait to finish this until you cool off.
Jake: Oh, no. I was cool. Brother, I was cool when he had the asinine idea of asking my wife to have another child with him. I was cool when I found out they actually had sex. I was cool when I found out he told the whole town that he's got six months to live. And you know what? It made us think that Trevor might be sick, he might die. Is that ok? Is any of this ok? Are you kidding me? I'm done being that guy! I'm done being cool!
Tad: So what do you want to do, kill David?
Jake: Yeah. But I'm not doing that. You need to tell me what to do, ok? You need to tell me how to take him down some other way. I'm gonna drag his ass through court. I'm gonna -- whatever I have to do. Civil court? Is that the way to do it? So I can put him up there for the whole world to see all the heinous things that he has done to every single person in this town. You need to tell me how to do that.
Liza: Jake, seriously, is that really what you want to do? Do you want to put Amanda through some long, drawn-out legal battle?
Tad: No. He wants to use the threat to drive Hayward out of Pine Valley.
[While music plays, J.R. and Marissa make love]
Singer: Never give in heaven every day I try nothing can change me I see each day in our new life overwhelmed and unprepared I never thought that I'd be standing here I'm trembling she's everything she's my everything she's my everything
Colby: I was getting ready for bed when all of a sudden I heard my car start.
Natalia: And you parked your car right here?
Colby: Yeah. My dad is always telling me to park it in the garage. I should have listened.
Brot: But you're sure no one borrowed the car?
Colby: Yes. Whoever took it, hotwired it.
Brot: We'll get the description and a plate number out right away.
Colby: Well, do you have any idea who might have taken it?
Natalia: There have been a lot of break-ins in this area. Now, we're not sure if this one is connected or not.
Colby: Wait. The guy might come back and try and get in the house?
Brot: We don't know that, but just in case, be sure to keep your doors and your windows locked.
Natalia: Yeah, and tell your security team to step it up.
Police dispatcher over radio: Burglar alarm, 500 Front Street. Repeat. 500 Front Street.
Brot: That's ConFusion. Guess our guy's moved on to bars now.
Natalia: I got to go. I'll keep you posted on the car, ok?
Colby: Oh, but --
Jake: And then of course there's blackmail and fraud, importing illegal drugs, false imprisonment. He kept Amanda at Wildwind under false pretenses. That's false imprisonment, right?
Liza: Well, it's intentional infliction of emotional distress. Well, we got quite a list here.
Jake: Good. All right, good. So, now, a civil suit, that's gonna be easier. Am I correct?
Liza: Yeah. Because we don't have to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. Just preponderance of evidence. In other words, we present enough evidence to the jury that they conclude that the victim's claims are true.
Jake: Well, good. We got evidence, and we got victims up the ying yang, so hopefully he gets a load of this list, and he hightails it out of town.
Liza: Yeah. I don't think so.
Jake: Well, if all those charges don't scare him off, then maybe everybody knowing about the charges will scare him off.
Liza: Listen, there is definitely a case here, but you know, going up against David, it's not easy, it's not ever simple, so I'm just gonna ask you one more time. Is this really what you want to do?
Jake: He hurts people, he's been terrorizing people, and it's gone on long enough. And this time, he's picked the wrong family. He's got to be stopped.
Liza: All right, I will draw up this paperwork.
Jake: Good. Just let him know it's happening tonight, ok?
Liza: Well, it's a lot of paperwork, so --
Jake: No. I would like him to be gone by tomorrow.
Liza: Look, even if I --
Jake: I'm talking tomorrow. No leeway, no waiting period, nothing like that. Either he leaves or this lawsuit goes underway tomorrow morning.
Liza: All right, I'm on it.
Jake: What are you looking at?
Tad: Nothing. I don't blame you. I've been where you are and then some. You have every right to want Hayward gone. But then what?
Jake: But then what what? We celebrate. I don't know, champagne, caviar, whatever.
Tad: No. It's a serious question. Then what? Let's say you get your wish. When you spend so much of your life and energy fighting against an enemy like David, eventually that enemy begins to define you. It gives you purpose. If you get him out of the picture, then what's your plan?
Amanda: You saw Jake?
Krystal: Yeah, yeah. He is pretty riled up, but I think Tad can talk some sense into him.
Amanda: Why isn't Jake here with me and Trevor? We have waited so long for this. For -- just to be free. The nightmare is finally over, so where is my husband?
Krystal: He is fighting for your family. He is doing what he thinks is right.
Amanda: Oh, I'm sick of fighting. That is all we've been doing for months. I just -- I have been so caught up dealing with David, it hasn't even really hit me that the man that I love is the father of my baby. That is our dream. That is what we have been wishing for, praying for. So why can't Jake just forget about revenge and just enjoy it?
Krystal: That's men. When they're not slaying the dragon, they -- they feel useless. You know, they're not happy unless they're in crisis mode.
Amanda: Jake doesn't have to be. He is choosing to keep the fight going.
Krystal: No. What he's doing, he's reacting with his heart and not his head, ok? He's not gonna rest until he gets rid of David.
Amanda: That's the problem. I don't want him to. I despise David, but I'm also afraid of him. I am scared of what he will do if Jake keeps pushing this.
David: Gayle, hey. How's our patient doing? No, I can't talk to her right now. Just tell Greenlee I'll be there soon. All right. What do you want?
Liza: What happened to your door?
David: Someone broke in. You're lucky I didn't --
Liza: What, hold a gun to my head? Or were you gonna come up with something else? It would have been kind of difficult since you've already committed every crime known to man.
David: Thanks for the reminder.
David: Why are you here?
Liza: Well, the truth really, which I would have liked a long time ago along with everyone else.
David: Well, we can't always get what we want, Liza.
Liza: No. The truth. Huh. Truth about that blood disease, the truth about those gifts that you handed out, right? Pretending to be so generous when really you just wanted everyone to squirm, and then telling everyone, especially your own daughter, that you're terminal when you knew all along you were healthy.
David: Are you finished?
Liza: No. 'Cause the worst one of all was Trevor. You knew that little boy was Jake's, and you said nothing. Huh. When did you actually find out? I bet you found out right from the beginning.
David: No! It wasn't right from the beginning. I only recently found out. Long after I'd fallen in love with him.
Liza: Oh, please. What, was that supposed to make me feel sorry for you?
David: Would you give me a break, please? Like you don't know what it feels like to have a baby ripped from your life. Stuart is gone, right? Well, I'm guessing that the feeling is still there, the love is still there, and it's killing you inside. My head is pounding, so unless you want to tell me what the hell you're doing here, just get out.
Liza: I'm here to represent Jake. I'm his lawyer.
David: Great. This day just gets better and better.
Liza: He's filing a civil suit against you with complaints a mile long. I'm sure I don't have to tell you what's on there.
David: No, you certainly don't. You can leave now.
Liza: No, actually I can't because this requires a response.
David: You want a response? Fine. Jake can do whatever the hell he wants. I don't give a damn anymore.
Liza: Well, that might be true, but why don't we, I don't know, explore the options here, see if there's a way that you can avoid all of this.
David: Let me guess. They want me to leave Pine Valley and never come back.
Natalia: So he kicks down the door?
Josh: Yeah. Guy had to be pretty strong.
Natalia: So the alarm didn't scare him off?
Josh: No. He just came right in.
Natalia: And nothing's missing, right?
Josh: Not as far as I can tell.
Natalia: All right, thanks. We'll be in touch. Once again, our perp breaks in and leaves empty handed.
Brot: But this time, he left us with something in the parking lot out back.
Natalia: What is it?
Brot: Colby's car.
Marissa: That's how I've always been. Independent and determined to take care of myself. I never thought that I'd need someone as much as I need you.
J.R.: I'm here.
Marissa: But when I say need, I don't mean because of David, like you have to fill some daddy void.
J.R.: Ha ha. I know.
Marissa: But there was a void, you know, this empty space in me that I didn't even know was there until I met you. Now that space is filled with love. Now I feel whole, strong, and like -- like I can do anything.
J.R.: I feel the same way. When I'm with you, you're by my side, I'm not afraid. It's like everything will be ok.
Little Adam: Daddy!
J.R.: Oh, hey, buddy. What's wrong?
Little Adam: I had a nightmare you were both gone.
J.R.: Oh -- well, we're not going anywhere, you hear me? We'll always take care of you. It'll be the three of us forever. Forever.
Jake: Taking care of my wife and son. That's all that matters to me.
Tad: Ok. So we're back to getting rid of Hayward. I'm right with you on that one. But just remember, as bad as the fight has been with him, he's been your sole focus for as far back as anybody can remember.
Jake: I know. It's huge waste of time and energy. I know.
Tad: It's a waste of time, time you can't get back. You might want to start thinking about that, before this is over. Because when it is, you might start feeling guilty, start thinking of ways to make it up to Trevor. That's exactly the way it was with me and Kathy.
Jake: I've never seen you happier than when you were with her.
Tad: Yeah, sure, now. But it took us a while to get here. For years, I used to be so upset about the time that I missed, I couldn't see what was going on in front of me. I missed the moment. Life has taken a lot of things away from you, but it's also given you a lot. You've got a son. A son. So you do what you have to to protect the people you love, but don't let a guy like David Hayward keep you from moving forward with your family.
Amanda: I'm still scared. David has always been part of my relationship with Jake. Every single thing that we ever did was either because of him or in spite of him. So what happens when we can do whatever we want? You know? I mean, what happens when we're not making our moves based on whatever David just threw at us. I know, I know it sounds crazy. But if not having that threat in our face every day, what if it changes us? And not for the better?
Krystal: No. Listen, Jake's stronger than that, and so is your love.
Amanda: It didn't start out that way. We just had a few dates and then broke up. The love came a long time after that. It was all backwards.
Krystal: Well, so what's wrong with that? Huh? That's -- that's surprising.
Amanda: I don't want any more surprises. I just want to be a normal couple, predictable.
Krystal: Well, I'm sorry, but that just does not exist. Love is gonna go where it wants to go. I mean, sometimes it lasts a day. Sometimes it lasts a lifetime. And from what I see, you and Jake are -- you're forever.
Amanda: How do you know that?
Krystal: Because I have been looking for that kind of love my whole life. I still haven't found it.
Liza: You can't stay here, David. Why would you even want to? Really? There's nothing left for you here. Amanda's never gonna let you see Trevor. Jake is going to destroy you with this lawsuit. The hospital's never gonna bring you back, and well, even your own daughter wants you gone.
David: So there's no hope?
Liza: What, for your future, here? Yeah, no, definitely not. So if I don't leave here with a promise that you're gonna leave, I'm gonna file this lawsuit first thing in the morning. He's suing for untold damages. Do you understand that?
David: As I said, Jake could do whatever he wants.
Liza: We are offering you a way to leave quietly. Don't make this worse.
David: Do what you have to, Liza.
Liza: Ok. So that means you will consider leaving?
David: It means I want you out of my house.
[Liza finishes squinting at David and leaves]
Brot: You know, Colby was right. Her car was hotwired. The perp probably took it for a joy ride, then decided to dump it.
Natalia: A joy ride? He drove from the Chandler Mansion to ConFusion and broke in here. Seems like a little more than a joy ride to me.
Josh: I found some cartons knocked over in the kitchen. Some of the cupboards were left open. Your guy might have been after some food.
Brot: You know, I searched the car, and I did find this.
Natalia: Is this U.S. Army?
Brot: Could be Marine, but I can't tell. But if you look closely --
Natalia: That's blood.
Brot: Whoever this belongs to might have cut himself.
Singer: You murder every party
J.R.: I know. I know. We need a bigger place, and we need to remember to lock our bedroom door.
Marissa: No, that's not what I was thinking. It's what you said to Little Adam.
J.R.: I meant every word.
Marissa: But his nightmare isn't entirely off. One day we will both be gone.
J.R.: No, I got a million years. I'm gonna beat this disease. We're gonna -- have a long, long happy life as a family.
Marissa: Then it's time.
J.R.: To tell Little A about the cancer?
Marissa: No. To give him a little brother or sister. I've seen the way you are with Colby, how close you guys are and how you support each other.
J.R.: I love her, even when she drives me nuts.
Marissa: So what do you think?
J.R.: I think we should start trying as soon as I'm done with the chemo. But until then -- we can have some fun practicing.
Krystal: Oh. Hey.
Krystal: Where's Jake?
Tad: You just missed him.
Krystal: Any luck?
Tad: Kinda sorta. I think Jake's gonna let the lawyers handle David. How'd it go with Amanda?
Krystal: Uh, she'll be ok.
Krystal: Yeah. I mean, she's afraid. For so long, the poor girl has been living moment to moment never knowing what's next, and now she finally has a whole life ahead of her with Jake, and she's afraid they won't make it.
Tad: Huh. That's because she doesn't know Trevor's gonna pull 'em through.
Krystal: Yeah, nothing bonds two people like a child.
Tad: Like you and me. No matter what life throws at us, we're always gonna be Jenny's mom and dad. Always.
[Liza watches Krystal and Tad hugging and leaves]
Amanda: What are you doing here?
David: I just came by to tell you that it was real. All of it.
Amanda: What are you talking about?
David: My feelings for Trevor. And for you. Everything I did was out of love.
Amanda: Ok, you really need to leave now.
David: If it wasn't for love, I never would have gone that far. Look, I'm not using that as an excuse. It's just -- I was desperate to have a real family.
Amanda: You and me -- that was never real. David, it never could be. My family is with Jake, and after the hell that you put us through, the last thing that you deserve is to have a family of your own.
David: You're right.
Jake: You have a death wish or something? What are you doing in my house?
David: All right, take it easy, ok? I'm giving you what you want. I'm leaving town. And I didn't need your threats to convince me.
Amanda: Are you serious?
David: Yes, I am. This is good-bye.
