Nicole: You-- you need me. Do you have any idea... how long it's been since someone said that to me?
Brady: Yeah, I do. Picked a hell of a time to say it, though. I mean...lining up with me right now is asking to be a target for the DiMera family.
Nicole: Yeah, well, I'd really hate to jeopardize the amazing relationship I have with them now.
Brady: I'm serious, Nicole.
Nicole: Me too.
Brady: It's gonna get rough.
Nicole: Well, if anyone knows what EJ and Stefano are capable of, it's me.
Abigail: There you are. I've been looking for you everywhere. Where've you been?
Sonny: Mm. I went home to shower and change. I told my parents about what happened. But they're on their way here, so maybe they can talk Victor into getting some sleep.
Abigail: Yeah, that'd be good.
Sonny: Yeah. Just sure wish I wasn't starting my job in the morning. I'm so tired.
Abigail: Especially since it's at the D.A.'s office. Chad said that guy can be a real jerk.
Sonny: Well, he grew up thinking the guy was his father, so he oughta know. Have you talked to Chad?
Abigail: Finally, yeah.
Sonny: How's he doing?
Abigail: Not good. Stuck in the DiMera house. I'm really worried about him, Sonny.
Bo: Chad? If you know anything about what happened to Maggie Horton, you gotta tell me now.
Hope: Chad... you're not doing anyone any favors by keeping your mouth shut.
Chad: Well, I don't know if that's true, but, um... there is something that I wanna say. And it's about time I said it.
[Heart monitor beeping]
Victor: I'm not gonna lose you, Maggie Horton, you hear me? I'm not gonna let the DiMeras take you away from me.
Taylor: Look, when you told me that you weren't going to get revenge on Brady, were you lying? Did you have something to do with Maggie's shooting?
EJ: Yeah. I lied. Maggie's shooting was my responsibility. You have nothing to say?
Taylor: Yeah, I do. Bull.
EJ: Excuse me?
Taylor: I don't believe you.
Sonny: So I guess Chad's getting his first real taste of what it's like to be part of a crime family.
Abigail: Yeah, except he didn't really think they were a crime family.
Sonny: So...what did he think they were, a cast of eccentric, loveable characters?
Abigail: Actually, pretty much, yeah.
Sonny: I remember I used to think that about my Uncle Vic. Kinda sucked when I found out the truth.
Abigail: Yeah, but I mean, you're a grand nephew, right? He's his son.
Sonny: Yeah, and my mom and dad kept my brothers and me a million miles away from the family business. It's just too bad no one was here to do that for Brady.
Abigail: You know, Chad... Chad thought that EJ was serious about that truce he made with Brady.
Sonny: Well, yeah, you know, it sounded serious. But then Maggie got shot. Which kinda made Brady think maybe EJ had his fingers crossed behind his back.
Abigail: Chad really believes in him. He believes in EJ.
Sonny: You've gotta be kidding me.
Abigail: No. What if EJ used him? What's gonna happen to him, Sonny?
Chad: Here's what I know about the shooting. Nothing. Now my father's not feeling well and I really appreciate you--
Bo: Chad, I'm sure you know and awful lot about the law.
Chad: Why? Because the guy I thought was my dad is a D.A.?
Bo: So you know that lying to a police officer is a crime.
Stefano: My son is not a liar.
Stefano: If he says that he knows nothing about it, he is telling the truth.
Bo: And, um... your word on what happened is supposed to be good enough for me?
Kate: Okay, listen. My husband's a diabetic. He passed out tonight. Chad has already told you he knows nothing about what happened tonight. Now I would like the both of you to leave.
Bo: If there's anything about what happened tonight that just happened to slip your mind--
Chad: I'll call you.
Kate: I'll see you out.
Stefano: You know... you just made me very proud.
Chad: Yeah? Then why do I feel like crap?
Nicole: I begged EJ to stop. I threatened him. I told him if he hurt you, I wouldn't stop until they put him away.
Brady: You're wasting your time.
Nicole: No. No, because I thought there was a chance. He kept trying to convince Taylor that he's different now.
Brady: Oh, he nearly had me convinced as well when he wanted to call a truce. That truce was nothing more than to give him an alibi so he could have my grandfather whacked. I would suggest that you don't listen to a word EJ ever has to say again, Nicole.
Nicole: Right. So what do we do instead?
Brady: I've arranged to have protection for my entire family. What happened to Maggie Horton is never gonna happen to anybody that I care about ever again. And that I promise you.
Taylor: So you want me to believe that you and your father set up Maggie Horton?
EJ: No. Maggie got in the way. Victor was the intended victim.
Taylor: So you wanted to kill Victor.
EJ: For revenge. His son struck me, so we strike back harder. That's how it works. It's that simple. Give me a whiskey...neat. Do me a favor. Give me the bottle, thanks.
Bartender: You got it.
Taylor: Victor and Brady, they're barely speaking because Brady is trying to push Victor out of the company. You kill Victor, you deliver Titan to Brady free and clear. You know what? You are too smart to do something like that.
EJ: I don't really care what Brady says. He loves that old man. That's why I hit him there, where it would hurt the most.
Taylor: You're lying. Look at me. Will you look at me? This is not your doing, and I will never believe that it was. But what I don't understand is why you want me to.
Adrienne: If this is what it looks like--
Lexie: A war...between the DiMera family and the Kiriakis family.
Adrienne: Where does that leave people like you and Justin?
Lexie: Stuck in the freakin' middle...as always.
[Cell phone ringing]
Lexie: Excuse me, I've gotta take this.
Adrienne: Yeah, yeah.
Lexie: Kate. Hi, is something wrong? Something else?
Kate: Your father's blood sugar is way up.
Lexie: How's he doing now?
Kate: Well, he got his insulin, and he seems to be better, but I still would like you to take a look at him.
Lexie: Sure, I'll be right there. I was on my way over anyway.
Kate: You were?
Lexie: Yeah. There's something I'd like to say to my father.
Justin: I think you should go home.
Victor: I'm not leaving her.
Justin: She's getting the best of care.
Victor: I got her into this mess.
Justin: And if whoever's after you--
Victor: I know who's after me.
Justin: Well, if they're still after you... you'll be endangering Maggie's life once again. Do you understand that?
Victor: I am not going to abandon her.
Justin: As your attorney, I need to know if you're planning some sort of retaliation. And as your nephew... I need to ask you how many more people have to get shot before you change your ways.
Chad: I just lied to the cops.
Stefano: You did what you had to do.
Chad: Did EJ go through this... when you found out he was your son? No. Wait, wait, wait. Don't... don't answer that. Because it doesn't matter. The only thing that does matter is that I did not sign up for this.
Stefano: You know something? None of us did. But we are blood. I mean, it's not something you just sign on the dotted line, you know?
Chad: Well, you know what? That kind of explains why Lexie's where she is. Why EJ is such a freaking mess. I mean, no wonder why his mother moved heaven and earth to keep him away from you.
Kate: Don't talk to your father like that. Not tonight.
Chad: Don't worry about it. I was just leaving.
Abigail: Chad, it's me. Look, I don't know what's going on or where you are or what's happening, but can you please call me, text me--something? I'm kinda going crazy over here. I don't know what to do.
Sonny: The DiMeras know he was part of what happened tonight. They're not gonna want him talking to anybody.
Abigail: Okay, well, that's too damn bad. Because one, I'm not anybody. And two, they're not keeping me away from Chad.
Bo: Well, that was an exercise in futility.
Hope: Oh, yeah. You know, even if Chad is on the fence about Stefano, he wasn't about to say anything with him standing right there. But Chad definitely knows something.
Bo: Yeah. And if he decides to give them up, we know right where that's gonna lead.
Hope: Oh, yeah, right to Brady. I know he's your nephew, but honestly, right now, I could strangle him.
Bo: Yeah. That I understand. And I understand wanting to kill EJ. But beating him up, did he think was gonna come out good?
D.A. Woods: Good. Just the people I wanted to see.
Hope: D.A. Woods.
Bo: Happy to see you, too.
D.A. Woods: I came over here to personally tell you I want whoever shot Maggie Horton. Now we lost EJ and the old man before because your witness was killed. This time, I want you to promise me...you'll hand me an airtight case.
Hope: I'm sorry to disappoint you, D.A.... but that's not gonna be possible.
Adrienne: Sonny, there you are. I've been looking all over for you.
Sonny: Hey, Mom. Where's Dad?
Adrienne: He's in with Victor and Maggie. Lexie says they're keeping her in a coma so that her myasthenia gravis won't act up. I guess she's lucky not to know what's going on. I wish I didn't. Have you seen Brady?
Sonny: Nope. You know, Ma, sometimes I just don't get straight guys.
Adrienne: Oh, I do. They're swinging their... male egos. And I'm damn sick and tired of it.
[Cell phone ringing]
Sonny: You're not gonna believe this.
Sonny: This is from the D.A.'s office. They want me to start work tonight.
Adrienne: Are you kidding me? At this hour?
Sonny: Yeah, it says come ASAP due to Maggie Horton's shooting.
D.A. Woods: Are you planning on not cooperating, Detective Brady?
Hope: Not planning on it, sir.
Bo: Roman took us off the case because the shooter's intended target was probably my father.
D.A. Woods: Of course, it was. That meeting between him and Stefano had to be a setup.
Hope: Well, nobody's talking.
Bo: At least not to us.
D.A. Woods: Who'd you interview?
Bo: It was your, um... Chad.
D.A. Woods: And, um... he covered for Stefano.
Bo: Oh, yeah.
D.A. Woods: Figures. Okay, we're gonna put this together. We're gonna nail the DiMeras-- each and every one of them. And I don't care what Roman wants. You're employees of the city... officers of the court, and as far as I'm concerned, you're still on this case.
Hope: What do you suppose that was all about?
Bo: Feeling a little hate.
Hope: A little?
Bo: Yeah, since he found out that Stefano is Chad's father. And now he thinks he has a way of destroying both of them.
Stefano: I'm beginning to think that I...brought Chad along too quickly.
Kate: No. He's gonna calm down. He's gonna-- he has to know that what happened to Maggie was-- was a terrible accident.
Stefano: Should've seen the look on Victor's face when Maggie was hit. Pure anguish. He wouldn't have looked that way if the bullet hit him.
Kate: I talked to the hospital. She's...through surgery and she's holding her own, so...
Stefano: Oh, God, I hate that expression.
Kate: Everything is going to be all right.
Lexie: Are you sure about that, Kate?
Lexie: It seems to me the family's batting zero. The Rafe imposter. That turned out to blow up in your face. And now this. Your goon shot an innocent woman?
Kate: Wait a minute.
Lexie: Shut up, Kate! What is wrong with you?
Victor: I'm right here, sweetheart. Don't you worry. All I can worry about now is Maggie. I can't think about my next step.
Justin: Good. I can't tell you how relieved I am to hear that... because our esteemed D.A. is already all over this.
Victor: An innocent woman being shot in a public place? I would hope so.
Justin: He's running for reelection next year, and he's not very popular.
Victor: I wonder why. His late wife happens to be an ex-hooker who tried to pawn off Stefano DiMera's kid as his.
Justin: He's gonna be running on cleaning up Salem. You can bet on it.
Victor: Justin, what are you trying to tell me?
Justin: What I'm trying to say is you don't need to take matters into your own hands.
Victor: Justin, I'm a witness. Bo's gonna wanna talk to me.
Justin: Okay, fine. Then tell him what happened. But don't even speculate about why it happened.
Victor: I'm supposed to let him think Maggie is in a hospital, because some guy went duck hunting and missed? I can't let him know that Stefano's trying to set me up?
Justin: Unless you don't mind seeing Brady go to prison. Yeah. I know he was the one who started all of this.
EJ: Maggie Horton is fighting for her life, because she fell in love with the wrong man. She romanticized him. She thought she could change him. And then she took a bullet for him. All right? He's the wrong guy. I'm the wrong guy. Get it?
Taylor: Maybe. Maybe. But you didn't do this.
EJ: Who did? Hmm? Who had more motive than me? I mean, that guy beat me up and left me dead.
Taylor: Okay, but you would've handled that yourself. You would not have involved your father.
EJ: I am my father. All right? Same blood flows through my veins.
Taylor: That is him talking.
EJ: I've fallen from grace, sweetheart. I don't think you can save me. Believe me. I am the devil.
Taylor: No, you're not.
EJ: I'm responsible for your mother's death. You know that, right? I mean, you said it yourself. You didn't know what I was capable of before. Well, you do now. So be a smart girl and do yourself a big favor and run. Run as fast as you can.
Taylor: I'm not going anywhere.
Kate: Do you know your father passed out tonight?
Lexie: I'd like some time alone with my father, please.
Stefano: Sorry, sweetheart.
Kate: You're here as a doctor, not a judge.
Lexie: You really got yourself a winner this time, Father. All right, sit down. Unbutton your shirt.
Lexie: [Quietly] Okay. Take some deep breaths.
Stefano: [Inhaling, exhaling]
Lexie: Okay. What I don't understand is why. Why did you do it? Haven't you done enough?
Stefano: Alexandra, you've got it all wrong.
Abigail: Is Chad here?
Kate: Um, I don't think so.
Abigail: Okay, thanks.
Kate: Do you have a sec? I could use your help with something.
Lexie: Your heart sounds good. Your pulse is steady. You should see an endocrinologist. Your insulin might need to be adjusted.
Stefano: I feel much better now.
Lexie: Mm-hmm. So... how are you going to play this? You were just having a face-to-face with Victor when Maggie walked into the bullet?
Stefano: Look, Alexandra, you already made your mind up about me, okay? So no matter what I say, it doesn't make any difference one way or the other here.
Lexie: You don't even care, do you? I mean, it doesn't even enter your mind when you start something like this that you are risking the lives of every member of your family. Do you think Victor's just gonna let this go? No! No, not any more than you would let it go if the roles were reversed. He is going to want to hurt you the way that you have hurt him. What if he comes after Theo? Or any of your grandchildren? What if he comes after me? We're talking about our lives. We could lose our lives.
Stefano: No, no, no. Come on. You could stay here. You'd be protected. I will protect you always.
Lexie: Oh, yeah. That would be worse than death!
Stefano: Then I have failed you. And I'm very sorry.
Victor: I don't know what you're talking about.
Justin: Cut it out. I know Brady was the one who beat up EJ. And that's why the DiMeras are trying to get back at you. And that's why poor Maggie got caught in the crossfire. And if I can connect the dots, so can the D.A.
Bo: He's right.
Bo: How's she doing?
Victor: Doctors put her in a coma so she can heal. This a courtesy call?
Bo: D.A. Woods just charged into the squad room and ordered Hope and me to make a case against the DiMeras.
Bo: I need your word that you'll let me do my damn job, and you won't do anything to retaliate.
Justin: Good luck with that.
Victor: I can't promise anything.
Hope: Gearing up for a long night?
Hope: [Sighs] What a mess this is.
Hope: I have a feeling it's only gonna get worse.
Adrienne: Wait, did something else happen?
Hope: The D.A. is saying this is a golden opportunity to take down the entire DiMera family.
Adrienne: Works for me.
Hope: Yeah, well, I have a feeling he could go after the Kiriakises as well.
Adrienne: Funny you should say that.
Adrienne: Sonny is supposed to start a job in the D.A.'s office tomorrow morning.
Hope: Are you kidding me? I didn't know that.
Adrienne: Oh, there's more. They called him in tonight.
Hope: Does he know something? About what happened? He does. He does.
Sonny: Yeah, I understand.
D.A. Woods: Good. I knew you were a smart kid. So...you'll take care of that for me.
Sonny: Yes, sir.
Lexie: What are you sorry for? That you put out a contract on Victor? Or that Maggie walked in and messed up your plan?
Stefano: You know, I keep saying you've got it all wrong, but... I'm really very sorry that my very existence makes you so miserable.
Lexie: No, no. It's not your existence, Father. You can be so loving. You can be so sweet. If only you were a bricklayer, instead of a gangster, we'd have a great relationship.
Stefano: Well, listen, I want nothing more than that.
Lexie: Yeah, well, you say that. But Father, all of your children are either miserable... or dead. Please. Please, please for me. Just change your tactics. Please.
Abigail: How could I help you with anything?
Kate: Well, there are some very unfortunate things being said about Chad's father.
Abigail: Isn't that what happens when you do unfortunate things?
Kate: Oh, my husband is not a monster.
Abigail: Is that what Chad called him?
Kate: Look, Stefano has gone out of his way to be a good father to Chad and to make him feel like he's part of the family. And I just don't think Chad should start taking that for granted.
Abigail: So I'm supposed to convince him to apologize or something? You're unbelievable. You know, as far as I'm concerned, the sooner that he gets away from this house and all of you, the better off he'll be. You know, maybe-- maybe after tonight, he finally figured that out for himself.
Bo: Did he just say he will not promise not to go after the DiMeras?
Justin: That's right.
Bo: Yeah, I was hoping I needed to get my hearing tested.
Justin: Well, you heard right. He really did say something that stupid.
Victor: What's stupid about it?
Justin: Bo and I just both told you that all eyes are watching every move you make.
Victor: All I can think about now is Maggie's recovery.
Bo: Good. That's more like it.
Victor: But don't think I'm going to forget what they did to her.
Bo: Yeah. And I'm not gonna forget that the reason she's in this bed is because someone put a contract out on you. I will find the person who put a bullet in her.
Victor: What makes you think you can connect him to Stefano?
Bo: 'Cause that's my job. And I wish you'd let me do it instead of taking matters into your own hands.
Victor: I want results.
Bo: Yeah, well, so does the D.A. But if you give him proof that there's a war going on between the families, he will find out that Brady is the one who started it. Do you really wanna deal with that right now?
Taylor: I don't wanna give up on you.
EJ: Maybe you're not as smart as I thought you were.
Taylor: Look, I had a little talk with Nicole earlier, and she has a way of pointing out when I am fooling myself. No matter how much I wanna be over you, I'm not.
EJ: Your mother must be rolling in her grave.
Taylor: Listen to me. I'm not gonna get over... what happened to her. But I know in my heart that you didn't want it to happen. And no matter what you say, I will never believe that you are responsible for Maggie's shooting.
EJ: I'm sick of talking.
Taylor: EJ, come--
Chad: What are you, nuts? She loves you, man. She could be your last chance. Hey!
Adrienne: You know I can't tell you what my son--
Hope: Adrienne, please.
Adrienne: Honey, what are-- what are you doing here? I thought you went to work.
Sonny: Uh, I did. But that's why I'm here.
Hope: Sonny, hi.
Adrienne: What do you mean, that's why you're here?
Sonny: I have a request for you. It's from the D.A.
Stefano: I... I don't know any other way to love my children. I-- I want to protect them.
Lexie: Yeah, well, you strike out at your enemies, and you call that protecting your children. But that is not protecting your children, Father. That's not love. And unless you stop, you're gonna lose us.
Kate: How is he?
Lexie: He's--he's fine. He, uh, needs to monitor his blood sugar more closely. And...if you don't know that he has candy stashed all over this house, you are not as smart as I thought you were.
Kate: I would not have called her if I knew she was going to give you a lecture on morality.
Stefano: Well... a lot of what she says is true. But unfortunately... [Chuckles] It's just too late for me to change.
Kate: Well, that's good. Because I love you just the way you are.
EJ: Do yourself a favor, all right? Stay out of this.
Chad: Look, I can go in there right now. I could tell her I was there, and I know everything you just said to her is a crock.
EJ: It's a lot better for her if she despises me.
Chad: Says who?
EJ: You know what, Chad, it'd be a lot better for you if you did yourself a big favor and you turned your back on this stinking, rancid family. Let me tell you something, I wish somebody had said that to me a long time ago.
Chad: Oh, come on, EJ, you wouldn't have listened.
EJ: Neither will you. It's your problem.
Abigail: Chad, wait.
Victor: Brady got drunk and he beat up EJ. But he didn't do it to start some war.
Bo: Well, that's what happened.
Victor: Brady and I were trying to broker a truce tonight. He went to EJ. I went to Stefano. All with the best intentions. That's what happened.
Justin: If Maggie could speak right now, what do you think she'd want you to do? I don't think it would involve exacting revenge on her behalf.
Bo: If the DiMeras did plan this--
Victor: Of course, they planned it.
Bo: Then they obviously screwed up. I was over there tonight. Stefano had his normal bravado, but I could tell he was scared. If he and EJ are laying low, hoping this whole thing blows over, maybe they won't point the finger at Brady. But if you keep going after them, they've got no reason to keep their mouths shut.
Justin: Bo's right.
Victor: All right, fine. What do you want me to do?
Brady: Listen. I don't want to involve you in this mess any more than I already have, so I think it's a good idea if you leave town for a little while.
Nicole: Leave town? Where am I supposed to go?
Brady: I don't know, Nicole, but I need to protect you, and that's my priority. Do you understand?
Nicole: Yeah. I need some--some time to decide. I need to think about it, okay?
Brady: Okay, absolutely.
Nicole: I should go.
Brady: Wait. I just don't want anything to happen to you. Okay?
Nicole: For what it's worth, Brady, I think you're doing the right thing. I really believe that.
Chad: What are you doing here?
Abigail: I was worried about you. I was looking for you everywhere.
Chad: Well, look, I'd like to stick around and make you feel better, but things still suck.
Abigail: I know, I know. I went to your house. I talked to Kate.
Chad: You shouldn't have done that. What are you doing? You've gotta stay out of this--
Abigail: I don't want to! I want to be with you!
Chad: Well, you can't okay? So please, just go home.
Abigail: Stop. This isn't about our families, Chad. It's about us. Look, I care about you a lot. So I'm not leaving you. And you don't have anything to say about it.
Kate: So try not to think about what Lexie said, all right? She just operated on Maggie. She's upset.
Stefano: Well, maybe in a perfect world I could be the man that she wants me to be.
Kate: But we both know it's not a perfect world.
Stefano: Hmm. Which is why I have to finish what I started.
Kate: You're not serious.
Stefano: Oh, sweetheart, I have to nip this situation in the bud. No matter what it takes to do it.
Adrienne: I need some air.
Hope: So what does the D.A. want?
Sonny: All of your case notes from EJ DiMera's beating all the way through tonight.
Hope: If he wants to give me orders, he should tell me himself.
Sonny: Okay. I'll let you say that part.
Hope: Thank you, Sonny. Okay, Detective Brady. Game on.
Bo: I need you to keep your mouths shut. If you feel like you have to say something to somebody, choose your words carefully. But mostly, just keep quiet.
Victor: Tall order.
Bo: Yeah, well, I don't want you talking to anybody about what happened to Maggie or what happened to EJ. No reporters, no cops, except Hope and me. You got that?
Victor: I got it.
Bo: Good. 'Cause if you start something, you get people talking, there won't be anything I can do.
Victor: Why is that?
Bo: I left out a small detail. Roman took Hope and me off the case.
Bo: Conflict of interest.
Victor: Oh, for crying out--
Bo: The bottom line is just stay here. Take care of Maggie. Don't do anything to retaliate.
Justin: And our family just might be able to survive this ordeal.
Bo: Do I have your word on this?
Victor: You have my word.
[Cell phone rings]
Brady: Dmitri, everything under control? Very good. I want you to keep it that way. And if the DiMeras make one little move, we're gonna be ready.
Lexie: Taylor, hey.
Lexie: What are you doing here so late?
Taylor: Well, I was trying to talk some sense into your brother.
Lexie: Did he listen?
Lexie: Oh, surprise, surprise.
Taylor: He wants me to believe that he's a monster, and he wants me to run like hell in the other direction.
Lexie: Well, he and I finally agree on something.
Taylor: He's not a monster.
Lexie: Not all the time. But sometimes... which is why it is so horrible for you to love him.
Taylor: But you still do, right?
Lexie: Well, like my father always says, we're blood. But you're not. So do what EJ says, Taylor. Save yourself, okay? Because whatever is coming down, it is out of your control.
Nicole: He needs me. Brady said he needs me. I'm finally gonna get what I deserve.
EJ: You know what, I agree. It's just what you deserve, sweetheart.
Coming up on "Days of Our Lives" --
EJ: You're about the only person who can stop this for good. I offered Brady a truce.
Brady: You really want a truce?
EJ: You don't?
Brady: Go to hell.
