[ Knock on door ]
Marlena: Oh, hi.
Cassie: We were surprised when you called.
Marlena: Well, uh, I-I'm glad you came over. I-I'm sorry it's so late.
Cassie: Oh, not for us.
Rex: We're in college, remember?
Marlena: Oh, yeah. You know what? Come -- come sit down.
Rex: You, uh, you look worried. We haven't done anything to upset you, have we?
Marlena: Oh, oh. Uh... no. No. I've just, uh, I thought about you a lot while I was gone, and I-I made a decision and I'd like to tell you about it.
Cassie: I already know.
Marlena: You do?
Cassie: You want us to call you mom, don't you?
Brady: Come on! This is just great.
Chloe: Computer crash?
Brady: No. No, it didn't crash.
Chloe: What do you say we both stop working for the night?
Brady: I'm sorry, chloe, I can't do that.
Chloe: You sure about that?
Brady: Ha ha ha. All right, all right, just -- just a few more minutes, okay?
Brady: I promise.
Brady: I did it. Yes, I did it! I did it!
Chloe: You did what?
Brady: I hacked into the server.
Chloe: Is that legal?
Brady: It's the dimera network, and who knows?
Chloe: You're spying on count dimera?
Brady: No, I'm protecting my family, and this -- this may be all the cyber dirt that I need on him.
Tony: You know, only you could turn the hub of the entire dimera organization into a rec room.
Bart: Boss, I'll clean it up in no time. You need to take a look at that monitor. A systems alert came up.
Bart: I turned on the computer to pop in a game, and that warni f flashed.
Tony: Oh. There's a breach of security.
Bart: Oh, man. I.S.A. Messing with us again?
Tony: No, no, this time -- this time it's my self-righteous young nephew.
Bart: Brady black is hacking into the system?
Tony: Yes, his computer skills are quite impressive.
Bart: Well, can you block him before he gets more information?
Tony: Nah, there's nothing to be gained by that. The best way to handle this is to put out the welcoming mat for my curious relative.
Bart: Come again?
Tony: Ha ha ha. I'm going to give brady exactly what he wants... all the rope he needs to hang me.
Belle: I've been looking all over for you. Most of the guests have gone.
Shawn-d: Did gran leave yet?
Belle: She said to thank you for everything you did to make her birthday such a wonderful and happy event, and to give you a goodbye kiss.
Bel: : Can we try that again?
Belle: Shawn, you are doing it again.
Belle: You're going off into that far-off space and you're leaving me behind.
Shawn-d: I don't mean to.
Belle: I know, and I know you have a lot going on right now, worrying about your mom and everything, but we agreed that we weren't going to let anything or anyone come between us again. Remember? No secrets, and no fair trying to protect me.
Shawn-d: I remember.
Belle: So I've decided, instead of worrying about it, about you, and instead of being passive, I-I'm going to do something to help you.
Shawn-d: There's nothing you can do.
Belle: I can be with you in every way.
Shawn-d: You -- you mean --
Belle: I want what we promised each other on new year's eve. It didn't happen that night because of colin murphy, but I want it to happen tonight. I want us to open our hearts to each other and not hold anything back. And when we do, maybe you can tell me what has you so down, and we can fix it together.
Bo: Have you seen zack's bear anyplace?
Hope: No, why, is he asking for it?
Bo: No, no, he's crashed, but if he wakes up without his best friend, he's going to... go crazy, but we're in luck. I'll take it up to him.
Bo: You okay?
Hope: Yeah. I'm glad to be home.
Bo: Take your jacket off, and stay a while.
Larry's voice: Murderer. You killed colin murphy. Don't you remember?
[ Echoing ] Remember?
Hope: [ Gasps ] Bo.
Bo: It's happening again, isn't it?
Hope: No. You just startled me, that's all.
Bo: Hope, you've been trying to convince me everything's okay ever since we left the party, but it's not. Come on, I know what's going on. Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.
Marlena: The last time that I saw you was here, in fact. You said that tony had encouraged you to -- to think of me as your mother.
Cassie: Tony didn't have to tell us anything. I mean, we already felt it from the moment you came into our lives. I look like you.
Cassie: Well, rex was the first e e that noticed it, but I think so, too. I mean, I look more like you than belle does.
Marlena: Belle is my daughter. You and rex...
Cassie: Aren'T. Okay, um, I think I see where this is going. You called us over here to remind us that we're just... some weird aliens and to -- to keep us in our place.
Marlena: No, no, I was going to say that I feel closer to you, too, than I would have believed possible. I just think it might have been better if tony hadn't, well, encouraged you to think of tony and me as father or mother figures.
Cassie: Well, at least he's not afraid of closeness.
Rex: Cassie, back off.
Cassie: No. Tony doesn't think of us as some science experiment, which you apparently do.
Marlena: No, I don'T.
Rex: But you have been pulling away ever since we went to live at the dimera mansion.
Marlena: Only because you don't need me the same way that you did when you were in the hospital.
Cassie: Right. Because now we don't have our glow-in-the-dark bracelets and we're just a couple of tattooed teens with some super learning skills. I mean, how fascinating is that under a microscope? Marlena, you -- you played your doctor role. You turned us from some wild kids into... civilized beings. That's it. Job's done, and you wash your hands of us, right? I mean, our own mother didn't want us. Why would you? You know what? We don't need you, either.
Marlena: Oh, cassie, cassie...
Rex: Cass,, don't go like this.
Cassie: I don't stay where I'm not wanted.
Rex: She took off.
Marlena: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Shawn-d: I'm not pulling away from you. I care about you too much to do that.
Belle: Shawn, I know you don't mean to.
Shawn-d: It's just... I hate the things that keep happening that I cannot put out of my mind.
Belle: We can go to my dorm room tonight and be in our own little world. Look, cassie is staying at the dimeras'. We can have the whole place to ourselves. We can work through anything as long as we're together.
Belle: Be with me tonight, and I promise you, tomorrow, we will fix the world.
Hope: I still feel terrible about what happened at the party. I was hitting you.
Bo: Hope, come on, wait. You were disoriented.
Hope: This has got to stop. When marlena gets back, I'm going to go see her. I promise you. Honey, let's just forget about it for tonight, okay? It was such a beautiful party, and, hey, gran -- she seemed so happy, didn't she?
Bo: You saw larry again tonight, didn't you?
Hope: Yeah, outside tuscany. That's why I was frightened.
Bo: No, no, I mean later, in the party. He appeared to you again, didn't he?
Bo: Why didn't you tell me?
Hope: Because the last time I saw him, it seemed so real. I didn't just see him, bo. I heard him this time. What he said was so terrible.
Zack: [ Crying ]
Hope: I'm going to go get him.
Bo: No, that's okay. You stay here. I'll take care of him.
Hope: What's the matter? Don't you trust me? I --
Bo: Of course I trust you.
Hope: I would never do anything to hurt zack.
Bo: Hope, I know that. I know.
Zack: [ Crying ]
Hope: Go. I-I'm fine. Just...
Larry's voice: Murderer. You killed colin murphy. Don't you remember?
[ Echoing ] Remember?
Hope: I killed him. Oh, my god. It's true.
Bo: What's true?
Chloe: Brady, maybe you should stop.
Brady: No way in hell I'm doing that.
Chloe: What if he catches you? What if tony dimera finds out you hacked into his server?
Brady: Chloe, he hasn't found out. Otherwise he would have shut me down already. And look at this -- this information just keeps pouring in.
[ Knock on door ]
John: Hey, it's me. Open up, man.
Brady: Oh, man. Talk about bad timing.
Chloe: I'll get it.
Chloe: Hello, mr. Black.
John: Hi, chloe.
Chloe: Come in.
John: Sorry to interrupt. We have a little unfinished business, though.
Chloe: Uh, maybe I should leave.
John: No, no. Not at all. Why don't you stay here? It kind of concerns you, also.
Brady: Why? What seems to be the problem?
John: It's about dimera. I'm not altogether comfortable with the way you confronted him at the hartley house yesterday.
Brady: I was protecting my sister.
John: Well, I'm the father. That's my battle.
Brady: We're family. It's my battle, too.
John: In theory only.
Brady: Dad, if you want somebody to worry about, worry about belle and sami. Count dracula is luring them into the batcave, and they need to be clued in about how dangerous he is.
John: Yes, you're right, and I will do that, but I need your word that you will stay out of it.
Brady: Well, I'm not going to go over to the mansion and flatten the guy, if that's what you're worried about.
John: That, and any other involvemen you may have planned with him.
John: Or am I already too late on that count?
Brady: Ahem. You know what? Can this wait until tomorrow? I mean, chloe and I haven't had any time alone in a while.
Chloe: It's okay. This is important.
Brady: Ha ha. All right. This is going to take a while, so, dad, why don't you have a seat?
John: You know, kid, ever since you were little -- ever since he was little, anytime anybody that he loved was in trouble, he was -- he was always right there, just determined to save them. Maybe you were trying to compensate for what you couldn't do for your mother. I don't know. Well, son, I love you for wanting to protect me and your sister, but I'm not going to let you take that on. It is not your job to save me. I can handle dimera. Is it understood?
Chloe: Brady, please, listen to him.
John: Anyone who takes on a dimera runs the risk of having them take over their life. I know from experience, and I will not let it happen to my son.
Brady: Uh, you know, you don't want to do that. I mean, it's --
John: You are playing a mighty dangerous game rere, kid, and it's going to stop right now.
Brady: What are you doing? Dad -- do you have any idea what the hell you just did?!
John: I'm making sure that I'm the one that's going to handle dimera, not you.
Bart: Pardon my ignorance, boss, but why are you giving the kid enough information to hang you?
Tony: Ha ha. Something I learned at my father's knee -- you reel them in nice and easy, and when they're caught and they think they've got you, then you pull the trap when they least suspect it, and then the hunter becomes the hunted. You've got enough work to do for a change. Would you stop breathing down my neck? Hmm. This is what I want you to do -- I want you to arrange a life-altering experience for the unsuspecting brady black.
Bo: Sit down. What is it? What's true?
Hope: I know what happened. I remember. God -- god, I wish I hadn'T.
Bo: What do you remember?
Hope: What we both thought secretly, but were too afraid to say.
Bo: This isn't about larry, is it?
Hope: No. It's about the night of victor and nicole's wedding. Brady, it's all coming back to me -- the reason why I left the wedding without telling you.
Bo: Go on.
Hope: I remember going back out on the terrace. When I looked down... I was standing over a dead body. I knew he had been shot. I thought it was larry, but it wasn'T. It was colin. Esor trash?
Rex: Cassie and I don't always see eye teyeye on things, even if we are twins. She's got this thing about family, you know? She always has. But it's just it's worse now. It's like the more we have, the more she seems to want.
Marlena: But who wouldn't want a mother and a father? That's what everybody wants. Hopefully, you and cassie will start to remember your past, your childhood, and -- the most painful part is not knowing.
Rex: But it's different for me. After everything you and tony have done for us, I know I can make it on my own. The past doesn't have to determine my future.
Marlena: You're never going to have to be alone. You've got friends. You've got tony. I will always be here for you.
Rex: Friendship can be, uh, confusing.
Marlena: Tell me what you mean.
Rex: The feelings you have for certain people can take you over, whether you want them to or not. And if you're not careful, you could -- could hurt them.
Marlena: Or you could be hurt. Rex... what's going on with you?
Rex: Nothing. Nothing at all. I-I just -- lately, I've been thinking I'd like to learn more about the type of work that you do. You know, I might major in psychology, you know? Be a psychiatrist like you.
Marlena: Well, the interesting thing about studying psychiatry is that you start to learn things about yourself. You might just start to remember your past, your parents.
Rex: No, I want to remember -- I do. I just -- I don't want to get caught up in all the anger and sadness the way cassie does.
Tony's voice: Don't do what their mother did, marlena. Don't abandon them.
Marlena: Rock-a-bye, baby
on the treetop
when the wind blows
the cradle will rock
when the bough breaks
the cradle will fall
Marlena: Rex... I hope that you know, whatever you go through, I'll always be here for you -- you and cassie.
Rex: Thanks. I just -- I wish you didn't look so sad when you're with me and cassie. Lately, everything we do seems to make you unhappy. Why is that?
Shawn-d: I need to be with you tonight, only you, and tomorrow, we're going to fix the world.
Shawn-d: Okay, listen, we're going to take my car. We'll leave yours here. We'll pick it up in the morning.
Belle: No, wait.
Belle: We have to leave separately.
Belle: I have to get ready. I have to get my room ready.
Shawn-d: Okay, how long are we talking -- hours, days, weeks?
Belle: 20 minutes, and then I want you at my door.
Shawn-d: I'll be there.
Belle: Remember, tomorrow we're fixing the world.
Shawn-d: 19 minutes, 45 seconds.
Cassie: Hey, shawn.
Shawn-d: Ca-cassie, what are you doing here?
Cassie: Actually, I was looking for you.
Shawn-d: Is something wrong?
Cassie: Everything is. It has been since new year's eve.
Shawn-d: Okay, look, you know what? I really -- I don't have time to deal with this right now.
Cassie: Okay, shawn, wait. We just can't keep putting this off. We need to talk about the night that colin murphy was shot.
John: Marlena's back from her conference. I got to go. So please do as I say.
Brady: All right, fine. Let me -- let me walk you out. Dad, please understand that nothing's going to happen to me, okay? I promise.
Chloe: And I promise I'll try to keep him out of any trouble, okay?
John: I will hold you to that.
Brady: It was good to see you, dad.
Chloe: Bye, mr. Black.
Brady: I have been working too long and too hard to stop now.
Chloe: Did you not hear a word he just said?
Brady: My dad may not have found anything...
Chloe: If you're not going to listen to him, at least please listen to me.
Brady: Look at that. I didn't lose it. He may not have found anything, but this is a hit. Look at this file.
[ Telephone rings ]
Tony: Hello to you. It's uncle tony here.
Brady: What do you want?
Tony: I was about to ask you that. I notice you broke into my server.
Brady: Yes, yes, actually, I did, and I'm going to use what I found to nail you, tony.
Bo: Are you sure you were standing over colin's body?
Hope: It was real, bo. Everything about that night -- it's coming back to me.
Bo: Okay. Is there a chance that you saw the person who shot him, and that's what scared you, and that's why you took off?
Hope: You're not understanding me. You're not understanding me. Listen to me. There was nobody else there. I did it. I shot colin murphy. N:Fat b tee:0001b2
Tony: So, uh, what is it you want, brady? Name it. I can't afford to put my family's organization at risk.
Brady: What about my family, tony? My sisters -- that's fair game?
Tony: Well, that's not my intention.
Brady: What is your intention? Face it, tony, it's over for you.
Tony: Look, is there any way we can discuss this? Perhaps you don't realize the magnitude of what you've uncovered.
Brady: We,@, your reaction tells me qte a bit.
Tony: But other people's lives are at stake here -- even your father'S. Now, I'd appreciate if we could just meet before you take matters into your own hands.
Brady: Well, I'm not coming over to the mansion, if that's what you expect.
Tony: Well, a neutral spot, then. How about popham road? It's just around the corner from salem place.
Brady: Fine. 20 minutes.
Tony: Perfect. Oh, thank you, brady.
Bart: All right. We're good to go, boss. Brady black is about to experience a show-stopping, life-altering adventure.
Tony: Oh, isn't that excellent. I'm sure he'll never be the same.
Marlena: You and cassie have done nothing to make me unhappy. I've had a lot on my mind. I haven't been sleeping so well.
Rex: Well, I should leave, then, so you can get some rest.
Marlena: Well... hey, I don't know how you'll do that. Didn't cassie take the car?
[ Laughing ]
Rex: Well, it's a nice night for a walk. Hey, don't worry about me.
John: But she always does.
John: So what's he doing here?
Rex: Just leaving.
John: What's going on? What does he want from you now?
Marlena: Well, I had invited the twins over so I could set the record straight...
Marlena: Tell them that I could not be a mother to them.
John: Well, that's, uh... you did the right thing.
Marlena: Hope so.
John: You, uh, you want to talk about it, tell me what happened?
Marlena: Why don't you tell me where you have been?
John: Well, all right. I, uh, stopped by the loft to get brady to back off dimera. None too soon, it appears. I found that he had hacked into dimera's server.
Marlena: Ooh, like father, like son.
John: It's not brady's fight.
Marlena: Well, since when did that scare you off? Especially if you thought your family might be in danger. He will back off, won't he?
John: He better. All right, how about you? Or, rather, how did the twins take the news?
Marlena: Cassie was mighty upset. She ran out. And rex seems to understand.
John: And you?
John: You didn't want to say no to the twins, did you? The fact is, you wish you could be a mother to them.
Cassie: Shawn, you're my friend, and I would do anything for you. I hope you know that. But a man is dead.
Shawn-d: I don't want to talk about it, okay?
Cassie: Well, we have to.
Shawn-d: It's over. All I want to do is forget.
Cassie: Shawn, neither one of us can forget what happened.
Shawn-d: It's got nothing to do with you, cassie.
Cassie: I was there at the kiriakis mansion that night looking for you. I saw you on the terrace with dr. Murphy.
Hope: Larry was on the ground. There was blood around him. And then slowly, larry turned into colin.
Bo: Hope, look, everything that's coming back to you from that night is all mixed up. You -- you weren't yourself. You were haunted by your fears of larry.
Hope: Brady --
Bo: And this whole --
Hope: Wait, wait. The first time I saw colin on the terrace, he was on the cell phone. I overheard what he was saying. He said he was going to kill you, and then he was gone, and larry was standing there. Brady, don't you see? I did it. I killed him. I killed colin, thinking it was larry, and that I was protecting you.
Chloebrbrady, please don't do this. You heard your father.
Brady: There's only one way that this can end.
Chloe: Will you at least think about it?
Brady: I'm not going to waste any more time, okay? Wish me luck.
Chloe: Please promise me you'll be careful.
Brady: Chloe, tonight, the battle between the dimeras and my family will be over, and that is the only promise that I can make.
Chloe: Brady, please forgive me.
[ Telephone rings ]
[ Ring ]
John: John black.
Chloe: Hi, mr. Black. It's chloe. Tony dimera called right after you left, and he knows what brady's been up to. They've arranged a meeting.
Chloe: Popham road. Brady's headed over there right now.
Bo: Hope, all you've got here are fragments of information. We can't build a case until all the facts are in. You know that.
Hope: But it's all starting to come back to me. Like my talk with jennifer. I remember taking her outside of the mansion, and she told me that colin was threatening jack's life.
Bo: Okay, and then what happened?
Hope: The next thing I remember is seeing colin's dead body at my feet, bo.
Bo: All right. So we got a huge chunk of time unaccound d for, like the time that you had to find a gun and shoot him.
Hope: I must be blocking it out.
Bo: No, hope, it's not possible. There's no way you could have killed colin.
Belle: Okay, the'e's no way I am going to do this in 10 minutes.
Rex: Sorry. The door was open.
Belle: That's okay.
Rex: Wow, that's pretty.
Belle: Um, thanks. Shawn's coming over, so...
Rex: You don't have to explain.
Belle: Good, because I don't have that much time to get ready.
Rex: I'm happy for you, belle, and shawn, too.
Belle: Thanks. Cassie won't be.
Rex: Hey, this is your night. Forget about cassie. She'll get over her crush on shawn.
Belle: Cross your heart and hope to die?
Rex: Cross my heart and hope to die.
Belle: Thank you.
Rex: Well, you better get ready. When's shawn supposed to show up?
Belle: Minutes. Seconds. You need to get out. I have to get ready. Goodbye.
Shawn-d: You saw me with colin. When?
Cassie: Right before he died. Shawn, I didn't tell anybody. I just couldn't keep it to myself any longer. I-I'm so sorry. I don't want to hurt you.
Shawn-d: Tell me what you heard.
Cassie: I was too far away. I couldn't hear what you guys were saying. I just saw that you were arguing, and then... I saw that you had a gun. Shawn, you pointed it at dr. Murphy, and you pulled the trigger. Dr. Murphy fell, and -- and you ran.
Shawn-d: Why'd you wait this long to say something?
Cassie: To protect you. Shawn, that's why I ran from the mansion that night, too -- because I couldn't wait for the police to get there. They couldn't question me. I couldn't tell them what I saw. Please, shawn, tell me that it wasn't you, that I -- that I imagined it.
Bo: Hope, anybody's memory can play tricks on them. Maybe you're imagining this whole thing.
Hope: I'm not.
Bo: You don't know th-- look, you just told me you saw larry at the party a couple of times.
Hope: And I did. I-I did. I-I did. I saw him. I saw him twice. And after the second time, all the memories of colin, seeing myself standing over his dead body -- it started coming back to me.
Bo: My point is larry wasn't real. You only saw him because of the trauma you suffered when he was holding you prisoner. Maybe all this stuff with colin -- maybe you're imagining that, too.
Hope: No, no, no! They were real. Because of the blood, I know they were real.
Bo: What do you mean?
Hope: The night that I disappeared from victor's, you found me here with blood on my hands.
Bo: You cut yourself on a knife in the kitchen.
Hope: But even you said that it was a loofof blood for such a small cut. What if some of that blood was colin's?
Bo: Why are you working so hard to take the rap for this murder?
He: 'Cause I need to know the truth. You know, maybe I'm not the same person I was before larry kidnapped me. I mean, maybe the horror of all those weeks -- maybe it goes a lot deeper than we thought, brady. You know, if I'm guilty, we've got to deal with this.
Bo: Do me a favor. Let's just wait until you can remember everything that happened that night, till you can fill in l l those missing times.
Hope: There is enough evidence here to make it a police matter. You know that, and so do I. And if I was anybody else, brady --
Bo: But you're not.
Hope: You know what you have to do, so let's just get it over with.
His experience there means you understand it here.
You might get a quick, quiet conversation or a look or a smile that tells you that they know that you're being watched as a reporter.
Kevin newman from washington beginning monday.
Tony's voice: You don't just care about the twins, marlena. Whether you admit it or not, you love them.
Marlena: You're right, tony. I do.
Belle: Rex, can you come down here for a second? Um, I need to ask your opinion about something.
Rex: Wow. Nice work. So what's the countdown now?
Belle: Time's up. Shawn's late.
Rex: He'll be here.
Belle: I wonder what's keeping him.
Shawn-d: You didn't imagine what happened that night. You did see me fighting with colin, holding a gun, firing it. God help me, I did it. I killed him.
Bo: What are you doing?
Hope: Calling abe. He has to know. I'm ready to make a statement. Do you want to call, or should I?
Bo: Stop this. Nobody's calling abe. You're not confessing to anybody.
Tony: Come on, brady, get here.
Tony: Right on time, brady.
Chloe: Brady, wait!
Brady: Chloe, what the hell are you doing here?
Chloe: There's something you ne t to know.
John: What the hell? Whoa, my god!
Chloe: Brady, watch out!
[ Screaming ]
Bo: I am not wrong, and I'll never believe you killed colin.
Hope: Sooner or later, you're going to have to accept that I did it.
Cassie: Shawn, you were angry. You were protecting your father, and you were scared.
Shawn-d: I pulled the trigger, and now he's dead, and -- and I'm his murderer.
Hope: [ Screaming ]
