Melanie: Let go of me. Please. Let go of me.
Nick: I'm not letting you go, Melanie!
Melanie: What are you gonna do, kill me?
Melanie: I said, what are you gonna do, kill me, like you killed my Father? Let go of me. No! No! [Crying] Please. You stabbed him, didn't you? Didn't you stab him?!
Kate: How long have you been standing there?
Daniel: I got here a moment ago.
Kate: Mm. [Laughs] You were smiling just like that.
Kate: In my dream... you were smiling. And I think it's gonna come true. You saved me.
Lucas: How are you doing?
Lucas: Thanks for getting here so quickly. I really appreciate it.
Chloe: Yeah, I got here as soon as I got your message. What's so urgent?
Lucas: Well, I have to decide on whether or not to commit to something for us. Well, here, open it.
Bo: So we're on the same page here. Nick is our killer, not Melanie.
Bo: Look, you don't have to do this. Why don't you go home? I'll take care of it.
Hope: No way.
Bo: He's your cousin.
Hope: Which is exactly why I need to stay.
Stephanie: Oh, thank God. It's Nick.
Philip: Nick. Nick, are you there?
Melanie: No! You're the one that killed him!
Nick: You're delusional, Melanie! I saw you!
Melanie: You're a liar!
Nick: Don't call me that.
Melanie: You yelled at him, and then you stabbed him. It's all coming back to me -- the knife going into his back, the sounds that he was making, moaning, dying.
Nick: Poor Melanie. Now she's imagining things.
Melanie: Like hell!
Nick: 'Cause she can't take the guilt.
Melanie: You are the guilty one, not me! There's no going back now. Do you not understand that? I remember. I know the truth now.
Nick: And I'm sorry you do. You'll never know how sorry I am.
Stephanie: What's going on?
Philip: Shh! I think he pocket-dialed you. There's people talking in the background. There's so much shouting, I -- I can't make out what they're saying.
Melanie: Please don't touch me.
Nick: You've got to hear --
Melanie: Why did you tell me I would be sorry? Are you threatening me? Am I just another --
Nick: You have to hear what I have to say right now. All right? [Breathing heavily] Good. 'Cause if -- if you don't hear what I say, if you don't understand, then there really is no hope for the future. Is there?
Kate: I usually don't put much stock in dreams, you know? They just fade away. But I think I'm gonna hold on to this one. You came up with, um, a miracle cure. It was one little pill and I took it and I was back to my old self. I was healthy, and I was strong.
Daniel: Well, I wish there were just one little pill.
Kate: Yeah. Some day, right?
Daniel: We're getting closer all the time.
Kate: So... these tests that you're running now that the treatment has stopped, they're gonna give us a lot of information, right?
Daniel: We'll get to see how effective the treatment's been, the size of the tumor, how much it shrunk. It'll give us an idea, obviously, of what to do next.
Kate: And what my chances are or whether or not I'm even going to survive this, right?
Daniel: It tells us what we're up against.
Kate: So, when do you get the results?
Daniel: Within an hour.
Chloe: This is...
Chloe: Lucas, oh, my God. This is beautiful.
Lucas: Isn't it? It's five bedrooms, pool. It's on a double lot.
Chloe: You already bought it?
Lucas: Well, I just put a bid on it. I just wanted to check with you first, make sure you didn't have any objections before we went to contract.
Chloe: Well, it's incredible. I mean, how could I have any objections?
Lucas: Listen, ever since Sami's been gone, you've been an amazing mother to Allie. And we don't really know, you know, it could be months or even years before Sami comes back and is truly a part of Allie's life. So...
Chloe: So what are you saying?
Lucas: Well, as far as I'm concerned, we're already family, you know. And, uh, even though we haven't talked about marriage too much because of my Mom's illness and because I've sensed a certain amount of ambivalence on your part...
Lucas: Yeah. I think maybe you feel that I'm not committed to this because of Sami, because of the fact you've been hurt in the past. But you know what? By buying this house, this is my way of showing you that I am very committed to us.
Lucas: And I'm a great guy. You know, I'm a great friend. And I'm amazing in bed. I know all that.
Chloe: You're modest, you.
Lucas: The husband thing, that's where I shine. I'd be a great husband for you.
Chloe: You will be. I truly believe that.
Lucas: Why do I get the feeling you're gonna tell me something I don't want to hear, like you wrecked my car or something?
Chloe: I'm sorry.
Lucas: Did something happen? You could tell me. Is something going on?
Chloe: I saw my ex-husband today.
Lucas: You saw Brady here in Salem?
Chloe: Yeah, uh, he flew in this morning.
Lucas: That's great. Good. Good. How long is he gonna stay?
Chloe: He's not sure. He's just here to see his friends and family. And he's been clean for almost a year.
Lucas: Good. Great. Good for him.
Chloe: Yeah. He's really gotten himself together.
Lucas: Is this where you tell me that you're leaving me and you're going back to him?
Chloe: No. No, not at all. We just ran into each other. I was here getting some food, and he showed up. It was just a coincidence.
Lucas: So why tell me?
Chloe: Well, because... well, seeing Brady made me realize something.
Lucas: What, Chloe? What did you realize?
Chloe: How lucky I am to have you.
Hope: My God. All this time, I have been so concerned for Nick, warning him about Melanie, so sure that she was the one who was corrupting him.
Bo: Fancy Face, you're the most intuitive person I know. You can't beat yourself up for something you couldn't have seen coming.
Hope: Well, maybe I did see it, and I just chose --
Bo: Would you stop? How could you have predicted something like this?
Hope: Oh, Brady, come on. This whole past year, there's been something so completely off about Nick. He was suffering, and I didn't reach out to him. Well, you know what? I'm gonna be there for him now, even if it means --
Bo: Hope, stop.
Bo: Brady. Where? Okay, I'll check it out. Thanks.
Bo: We may have a lead on where they are.
Stephanie: What is that?
Philip: It sounds like a plane.
Nick: That could be us. [Airplane engine roars] We could be on a plane in a couple of hours, on our way to Vegas, getting married. Melanie, it can be the way that we planned it.
Melanie: Is that the hope that you were talking about, that I would still want to marry you after I found out you killed my Father?
Nick: Don't you see? I did this -- I did everything for you, for our future, for us.
Melanie: No, there is no us! I'm getting out of here. Don't try and stop me. Just leave me the hell alone! [Static]
Nick: Why are you doing this?! How can you act this way when I've done everything for you?
Melanie: You haven't done anything for me!
Nick: How dare you say that?!
Melanie: You've done horrible things to me -- unforgivable things, and I hate you! [Sobbing] I hate you!
Daniel: I guess I should go see if those results are ready.
Kate: Daniel, wait. I'm sorry.
Daniel: For what?
Kate: For putting -- for putting pressure on you. I didn't mean to do that.
Daniel: I don't understand.
Kate: The dream -- the dream of you saving my life.
Daniel: Why would I feel pressure?
Kate: [Laughing] Because -- because you might be thinking that I expect it.
Daniel: You have every right to expect it.
Kate: No, I don't. No one does. And like I told my sons, this is the hand that I've been dealt, and I'm going to fight as hard as I possibly can. And I know, as my doctor, you're going to do everything that you can to save me. But I am prepared not to be saved.
Daniel: Kate --
Kate: No. Please. I want you to listen to me. I have lived a full life. I have... I have had love, and that is... the most important thing... really, the only thing. And I think the more you struggle, the more clear that becomes. So that's the upside... the clarity. And it's... it's what I want for you, to have a life filled with love.
Lucas: So Brady made you realize...
Chloe: How lucky I am. I mean, I started thinking how if you hadn't come into my life, I might have still been pining for Brady, wondering how everything went so wrong. But now I have you and Allie. And we're like this little family. And it makes me feel safe and warm. I guess you've domesticated me, Lucas Horton.
Lucas: Yes. Yes. So, is that a yes on the house? Yeah?
Philip: Nothing, right?
Stephanie: I'm gonna try again.
Philip: You're not gonna reach him, Steph.
Stephanie: We have to do something. You heard Melanie screaming. What if something is wrong?
Philip: She sure as hell wanted out of that hotel.
Stephanie: Yeah, which hotel?
Philip: Remember that plane we heard?
Philip: Come on.
Nick: You hate me.
Melanie: Oh, yeah. That must come as a real shock to you. I mean, all you did was kill my Father and terrorize me for weeks.
Nick: I thought --
Melanie: I don't really care what you were thinking or what you're thinking now. Really, all I want you to do is just shut the hell up and leave me alone.
Nick: I never meant for this to hurt you! That was never my intention, Melanie.
Melanie: [Crying] Please, just stop talking.
Nick: I did this for you! I did everything to make your life better. Please, you have to forgive me.
Melanie: [Sniffles] You are sorry?
Nick: You have no idea. To see you like this, I feel horrible.
Melanie: I know. I know you didn't mean to hurt me.
Nick: It's the last thing I wanted to do. You have to believe that.
Melanie: Maybe I was too hard on you.
Nick: I was only doing... what I thought was right. I wanted to make you happy. I wanted to make your life better. I wanted to make you feel free, like you had another chance.
Melanie: 'Cause you are my friend. [Sniffles] Well, the good -- the good thing about -- about all this is -- is because you're such an amazing guy, you can still make this right.
Melanie: And if you do that, I will forgive you.
Nick: How? What do I do? How can I make this right, Melanie?
Melanie: [Sniffles] Call the police...and confess. Do it now.
Lucas: [Clears throat] Mom? Mom.
Kate: Oh. Hey. I'm sorry. What a nice surprise.
Chloe: What were you listening to?
Kate: I was listening to David Bowie. He's very uplifting.
Lucas: Speaking of uplifting, you look great.
Kate: [Exhales deeply] I feel pretty good. I do. The -- the treatment was rough, but, um, I got through the first one, right, with your support... and yours, Chloe. I don't think you realize how much you helped.
Chloe: All I did was remind you what you already know. [Door opens]
Daniel: It took a little longer than I thought, but -- oh, you, um, have company. I can come back.
Kate: No, please. Please. Um, Daniel has the results of my latest test to see how effective the first treatment was. So, was all the pain and nausea worth it? Did the chemo work?
Bo: There it is, credit card belonging to Nick Fallon.
Hope: Used at the Airway Motel. Let's go.
Bo: Hey, guys, what's up?
Philip: We have some information about Nick.
Stephanie: We think he and Melanie are holed up at a hotel near the airport.
Philip: Stephanie got a call from his phone. No one was on the other end, but we heard a few things.
Stephanie: We heard fighting, and there were some screams. And then we heard an airplane, so we figured --
Bo: You just confirmed what we were in the middle of checking out.
Hope: We just traced Nick's credit card to an airport motel.
Philip: Can we tag along?
Bo: We'll handle it.
Hope: Just go home. I'll talk to you later.
Stephanie: After what we heard? Nick may need our help. How can we just go home?
Philip: We can't.
Melanie: Nick, you said that you didn't want to hurt me, that all you want was to see me happy.
Nick: Yeah, but...
Melanie: So, then, don't you see that this is the only way that that can happen?
Nick: But I'd go to prison. If I tell the cops I killed a man, Melanie, I'd never see you again.
Melanie: That's not true. I'll come and I'll visit you all the time. I promise.
Nick: You'll visit?
Melanie: [Panting] What -- what -- ow! What are you doing?
Nick: You're playing me, just the way you play everybody.
Melanie: No, no, I -- Nick, I would never do that to you.
Nick: I gave you everything!
Melanie: [Crying] Nick, please!
Nick: You don't care about me. The only thing you care about is saving yourself. You don't care about what I did or what I'm going through. That's not gonna happen, not this time.
Daniel: Great news. First run of chemo is as successful as I've ever seen. The, uh -- well, the tumor shrunk significantly.
Lucas: Thank God.
Kate: Oh, my God. It was worth it.
Daniel: Well, I'm very encouraged, Kate, and this bodes extremely well for your prognosis.
Lucas: I can't believe this. This is the best news ever.
Chloe: I'm so happy for you.
Lucas: Oh, man.
Kate: Thank you.
Daniel: Don't thank me. You're doing well. The way you responded to the treatment -- it had nothing to do with me. It's all you.
Lucas: So, wait a minute. What happens now? What do we do next?
Daniel: Uh, you know, I'll go over specifics later. But right now, why don't you guys just enjoy the visit? I'll get some work d done. Okay?
Kate: [Laughing] Oh, my God.
Stephanie: This is really bad, Philip.
Philip: Just keep a watch out on the door, make sure no one's coming.
Stephanie: What are you doing?
Philip: Just keep a watch. [Keyboard clacking] Got it.
Stephanie: Got what?
Philip: Salem Airway Motel. 13501 Seaside.
Stephanie: Oh, Philip, you are a genius.
Philip: Wait. We got to stay quiet and out of sight.
Stephanie: I know. We can't let your brother know we're interfering. I get that. Maybe we can find a place, like an alley. Lie low and check things out.
Philip: Okay. Let's go.
Melanie: [Crying] No, Nick. You're right. You're right. I don't know -- I don't know how or why you did the things that you did, and it was selfish of me not to ask -- not to ask what you were going through. I'm sorry.
Nick: Such a -- a strange feeling -- the knife, when it actually went in.
Melanie: Why did you do it, Nick? Did -- did you think he was gonna hurt me?
Nick: I... I don't know.
Melanie: Tell me. Tell me.
Nick: I -- I got to the cemetery and... I heard what -- what sounded like an argument and... I saw the two of you and... your dad looked, I don't know, crazy. And when he knocked you down...
Melanie: Get off of me!
Nick: You son of a bitch!
Trent: Leave it to Melanie to have a dork like you for a knight in shining armor.
Nick: No! No!
Nick: [Breathing heavily]
Nick: ...I could tell he was gonna keep going. He was gonna do something worse. I couldn't let that happen. Seeing him hurt you like that, I just -- I don't know. I lost my mind. All I could think about was you, taking care of you. That's why I was there. That's all I could think about. And then I -- I looked at you, and you were about to come to. And Trent, he was -- he was staggering and -- and gasping for breath. I should have called the police. I should have stayed put. I should have just owned up to everything right then and there. But all I could think about was how much I wanted to be with you, how much I wanted to make you happy and make everything right. So I left... because I love you. If I had confessed, I would have had to give you up. And how much sense would that have made since I did everything for you in the first place?
Melanie: Yeah, how much sense would that have made?
Nick: It's weird. You know?
Melanie: What is?
Nick: It's not that different from what I did before.
Melanie: You've done something like this before?
Nick: [Sighs] I guess I did.
Lucas: I wonder what's next. I mean, I know Daniel hasn't given us any specifics yet.
Chloe: Lucas, your mom just got great news. Why don't you let her savor that for a while?
Kate: Thank you, Chloe. I would really like to do that.
Chloe: And if you promise not to bug your mom about the next step, then I will leave you two alone.
Kate: I'm gonna keep him in line.
Chloe: All right, cool. You know what? There's a little kids' bookstore across from the park. I'll just go get Allie another picture book. I'll meet you back here later?
Lucas: That sounds great. Thank you.
Chloe: All right. Kate, can I get you something -- magazines, trashy romance novel?
Kate: Ah, no, I think I'm okay.
Chloe: Okay. I'll see you guys later.
Lucas: All right.
[Door opens, closes]
Lucas: It's kind of weird, but it's amazing.
Lucas: Well, it's almost as if you guys like each other.
Kate: Well, I don't think I'd go that far.
Lucas: But it's gotten better, right? It's improved?
Kate: Well, clearly, she makes you very happy.
Lucas: Yes. Yes, she does.
Kate: She's been very kind to me. She had cancer herself, of course, and she was able to empathize with me, and it was comforting. It was. And my feelings towards her have changed slightly. What?
Lucas: Just slightly? Come on, you're gonna have to do better than that.
Daniel: Hey. I-I'm just getting some fresh air. That's all.
Chloe: Are you okay?
Daniel: Long day. [Sighs]
Chloe: It's more than that, isn't it? Well, you can't be upset about Kate. You said her test results were really positive, so... was that not true? Is there something you didn't tell her?
Melanie: This happened before. You killed another person.
Nick: This girl I knew. But it was an accident. At least, that's what I told everyone.
Melanie: What happened?
Nick: She died. But it wasn't my fault... not really.
Melanie: Who was it?
Nick: Her name was Willow. She was my friend... till she started blackmailing me. [Chuckles] It was all over a stupid hairbrush.
Nick: Give it to me, Willow.
Willow: No! Give me the hairbrush! I'm gonna kill you! Nick, let go!
Nick: [Breathing heavily] Willow. Answer me, Willow! If you're hurt, just say so. I'll call someone. Willow, stop screwing around, okay? It's not funny. Willow.
Nick: [Sniffles] See? It's all connected. I caused one person to die for Chelsea... and now another one for you. It seems like every time I try to do good... people end up dead. Maybe... I can't help but ruin everything I touch... including you.
Kate: Lucas, I don't want to be pressured into feeling something I don't feel.
Lucas: I'm just saying --
Kate: I know that you love her, and because you love her, you want me to love her. And I don't know -- maybe that will happen. But right now, I'm still feeling a little wary.
Lucas: All right. Okay. Fine, I won't push, and I won't pressure you in any way.
Lucas: But I do have something I want to show you.
Lucas: Feast your eyes on that bad boy. Look at that place. The place is huge, isn't it? You could have dogs and birds and varmints and herds of buffalo even.
Kate: It's nice.
Lucas: It's not nice. It's beautiful. This is my dream home. What are you talking about? Can't you at least be excited?
Kate: Look, I just don't want you to move too fast. That's all.
Lucas: I'm not moving too fast, all right? Chloe and I aren't strangers. We've known each other forever.
Kate: No, but you have not been a couple forever, okay? What about Sami?
Lucas: What about Sami? She's out. And Chloe's in. I'm gonna ask Chloe to marry me.
Lucas: What do you mean, "what?" Can't you at least be happy for me right now?
Kate: Yes, of course I'm happy for you. I mean, I'm happy for you if this is what you want, if Chloe is the woman you love. That's all that really matters, isn't it?
Lucas: Yeah. I'm glad you feel that way 'cause I want you at my wedding. I want you to dance up a storm.
Kate: I want that, too.
Daniel: Actually, Kate's test results were every bit as good as I said they were. In fact, I downplayed them a little bit.
Chloe: So what's there to be upset about?
Daniel: When you're in medicine, they teach you that you have got to maintain your objectivity. And doctors should be compassionate, of course, but they've got to do it in a detached sort of way, not get emotionally...involved.
Chloe: And you have a problem with that.
Daniel: Yeah. Yeah, I do. I'm working on it, though.
Chloe: But with Kate, she's not just another patient.
Daniel: Which makes it that much more difficult, yeah.
Chloe: Well, what's wrong with caring too much?
Daniel: It's not only that. See, it's also -- look, I lack humility, Chloe. I've always believed that I should be able to save every patient, cure them. Now, that's great if you're an intern or if you're just right out of med school, but... look, I should have learned by now... I am not a God.
Chloe: So you feel passionately about what you do. Why be hard on yourself for that?
Daniel: It's not only being passionate about what you do. But it's also being passionate to the point you can't even breathe. Doctors -- they lose patients. It's inevitable. As hard as we work, in spite of all of our efforts, people -- people die. And to perceive that as just some sort of personal failure...
Chloe: Is that what you do?
Daniel: Well, my wife died. You think I'd learn by now to distance myself, but I haven't learned a thing, haven't learned a single thing.
Chloe: I still don't understand, though, Daniel. You said the news with Kate is good.
Daniel: Kate still has cancer. And although I'm encouraged -- she should be, too -- but it is not over. It should be over. So when I heard her being relieved, I got all anxious about it because I can't tell her she can go home, that, that woman in that bed is cured. I can't do it.
Chloe: I understand.
Daniel: I'm glad... because I'm gonna need a huge favor from you.
Philip: [Grunting] Damn.
Stephanie: It's locked?
Philip: Unless you've got a battering ram.
Stephanie: We're gonna have to go through the front.
Philip: We can't.
Stephanie: Come on, Philip.
Philip: We've been through this, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Just because your brother's car is parked out front?
Philip: Just because we are interfering with an investigation.
Stephanie: Oh, yeah. Nick's life is on the line, but let's worry about being reprimanded by your brother.
Philip: [Sighs] You're right. We have to find out if they're here, but we can't go through the front.
Stephanie: Okay, then how?
Philip: You have a paper clip? A Swiss Army knife? Anything to jimmy this lock.
Stephanie: Um...how's this?
Philip: Keep your fingers crossed.
Melanie: You haven't ruined me. You haven't ruined anything.
Nick: Everything I touch.
Melanie: No. Nick, look at me. Look at me. Please. I see now all the things that you've done for me, and it's made me realize that I want to be with you.
Nick: You're lying.
Melanie: No, I promise. We could leave right now. We can go to the airport. We don't even have to go to Vegas. I'll go anywhere with you.
Nick: The only reason you want to go now, Melanie, is because you know that as soon as we're out in public, you can get away from me.
Nick: I can't let you go. I just can't.
Melanie: But I don't want you to let me go. I promise.
Nick: I wish I could believe that.
Melanie: You can, Nick. You can. You can believe me.
Nick: I want to trust you, Melanie. I really do. And maybe one day I can. But until then, we're just gonna have to stay here. [Chain rattling]
Nick: Melanie, what are you doing?!
Hope: Nick! Nick!
Bo: Shh. Listen.
Melanie: Get off! Let me go!
Nick: No, I'm not letting you go, Melanie!
Melanie: Nick, stop it!
Kate: Of course I'll dance at your wedding, whomever you marry.
Lucas: You're missing the whole point of this conversation. I just told you that I want to marry Chloe. It's not whoever I marry. I know she's not your dream choice, but, you know...
Kate: Come on, I'm your mother, all right? I just want you to be cautious, honey. I don't want you to rush into anything.
Lucas: I know. But I love her. I love her like I've never loved anyone before.
Kate: [Chuckles] Then who am I to stand in your way, right? Especially now when I am beginning to realize that that's really all we have, isn't it, love? Love is what it's all about.
Lucas: You know what? I think you're gonna find it, too. You're gonna find someone to make you very happy.
Kate: You think so, huh?
Lucas: Mm-hmm. Yeah. I just got this funny feeling.
Daniel: So if you wouldn't mention anything to Kate or Lucas...
Chloe: That's the huge favor?
Daniel: Well, I -- I just don't want Kate to know anything other than I've been coolly objective about her condition.
Chloe: Of course. And I'm sure she doesn't have the slightest idea that you would ever get emotional or maybe anxious about her.
Daniel: Okay, okay. She's probably onto me. But some things are better left unsaid.
Chloe: I understand. It's okay. This will be just between us. My lips are sealed.
Daniel: Thank you, Chloe.
Stephanie: This is taking too long. Somebody's gonna see us.
Philip: Okay, relax. I think I feel something.
Melanie: [Screams] Please, just let me go!
Melanie: Nick, please, let me go!
Nick: Melanie, what are you gonna do in here, jump off the balcony?
Philip: Nick! Melanie!
Melanie: Stop! Let me go! [Screams]
Stephanie: Philip, be careful! Oh, my God.
Nicole: How long are you planning to stay in Salem?
Brady: Maybe permanently.
Chelsea: Where are you?
Stephanie: The police station.
Stephanie: You should come down here, now if you can.
