Marlena: Damn it, Kristen. You've got my phone. I've got to warn John.
John: Ah, come on. [Scoffs]
John: Mindy, when you finish that report, I want you to-- Kristen.
Kristen: Hi, John. It's so good to see you.
Lucas: All right, so I got everything--I got the ballet clothes, I got the wraps, got the slippers. We're good to go. We can just pick her up after school and take her to ballet, right?
Sami: Yes. Thanks.
Lucas: No problemo. [Clears throat] Ali told me last night that you had a hot date with Rafe. Everything that is old is new again for Sami, once again. Sorry, that was a little bad joke.
Lucas: You know, you shouldn't be mad at your daughter because she likes to talk. She kind of gets that from you. So...if you and Rafe are back together, you and Rafe are together--I don't really care.
Sami: Okay, so we're not together, okay? Rafe and I are not together. Not now, not ever. Rafe Hernandez can go to Hell, for all I care.
Daniel: And I want you to know that I will always want you in my life.
Daniel: There are no buts. What I--what I want to say is, when you're better, when you can...I want to go away... with you. Together.
Nicole: Oh, Daniel. [Sighs] But, uh, do you mean like a-- like a vacation or..
Daniel: No, listen, we're not talking about... like a stay-cation, I don't... I don't know.
Nicole: Okay, like where you stay home and--
Daniel: No, no, what we do is we go away, and we stay away. For good.
Nicole: For good?
Daniel: For good. And I'm talking about permanent. Gone.
Nicole: But that's... that's not something friends normally do.
Daniel: Couples have been known to do it, I think. And I want us to be so much more than friends.
Nicole: Oh, Daniel. That's exactly what I needed to hear right now. Well, wh--when? What--how-- when can we go? How soon can we leave?
Daniel: Well, it may take some time, now that EJ knows the deception. So I just have to make sure there's no legal ramifications, that's all.
Nicole: Okay, but--but after--after all this happened with the baby, I mean, it doesn't seem like it mattered much to him that we lied... about Rafe being the father of the baby.
Rafe: Don't buy that for a minute.
Rafe: EJ's not letting this go.
Jennifer: EJ. I...
EJ: You killed my child.
Jennifer: No, I didn't.
EJ: Yes, you did.
Jennifer: EJ, no, I didn't.
EJ: You're gonna pay for what you did.
Rafe: So EJ confronted me. Of course I denied it. But...turns out that EJ has a recording of the call. A recording that says, "yes, EJ, the baby is yours."
Daniel: That bastard. So he has proof. But why--why isn't he doing anything about it? What's--what's his game?
Rafe: Well, he just seems to be picking his battles. He's already used what he knows to drive a wedge between Sami and me.
Rafe: But, like I said, he has this recording. But before he played the recording, he got me to insist numerous times that I was the baby's father in front of Sami. Obviously, when she heard the recording, she lost it.
Daniel: Well, I'm sure revenge is only the beginning.
Rafe: Yeah, just another day in the office for that son of a bitch.
Nicole: I am so sorry. Y-you--you both have done everything right. You've done everything I've asked you to do, and I've ruined it--I've ruined everything.
Daniel: No, no, he took advantage of you. At the worst possible time. You were sedated. You were devastated. You lost a baby. Don't--don't go there.
Nicole: I know, I know, but I--I should have been more careful. You two have risked everything for me. It's all my fault. This is all my fault.
Jennifer: EJ, that is not true. I don't know what you've heard.
EJ: What I heard? What I heard? Tell you what I heard-- I heard that you were so furious with Nicole that you shoved her down a flight of stairs and killed our child.
Jennifer: I didn't. It didn't happen that way. And I am so sorry for her. I'm so sorry for that little baby, but I'm telling you, it didn't happen the way you heard. Not like that at all.
EJ: There were two eyewitnesses, Jennifer. Two. Billy Reed and Brady Black. They saw you fighting with her, and then they saw you push her down a flight of stairs. She was eight months pregnant!
Jennifer: I'm telling you, you have to believe me, I would never in a million years push her.
EJ: My child's dead. You understand me? Dead. Because you murdered her.
Jennifer: No, I... I promise you, I didn't. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, but I didn't do that.
EJ: You're sorry? He's dead!
Jennifer: I didn't push her!
EJ: And you're sorry!
Jennifer: Yes, I am!
Hope: Stop! EJ, you need to leave. Right now.
Kristen: We haven't seen each other in years. And yet, looking at you right now, it's like not one day has gone by.
John: You got a lotta nerve--
Kristen: I guess that's how it is for old friends, right? You just kind of pick up where you left off.
John: Come on, pick it up.
Kristen: Who are you calling?
John: Roman Brady. I'm gonna throw your ass in jail. Where it belongs.
Lucas: I'll probably kick myself for asking this, but what happened with Rafe?
Sami: Nicole lost her baby last night.
Lucas: She did, really? That's terrible. Poor Rafe must be taking it hard, I mean, I know he's always wanted kids of his own.
Sami: Right. The thing is, Rafe isn't that baby's father.
Lucas: What was that?
Sami: Oh, yeah. It's EJ's.
Lucas: It's EJ's baby? That is just-- that's glorious. I--you know, I knew-- I knew something was wrong. I knew it was a mess. The--the first time I heard that, I knew that story was messed up. Guess it doesn't do any good now, does it?
Sami: It matters to me. It matters to me because I asked Rafe a million times if EJ was that baby's father. I even promised to help him keep the secret from EJ. And he looked me in the eye, and he lied to me. Rafe lied to me, over and over.
Lucas: I'm sure he had his reasons.
Sami: Yeah. Of course. His reason is that he doesn't trust me. And now the feeling is mutual.
Lucas: Let me get this straight for a second. You feel betrayed. Right? Is that it? I get that.
Sami: You do? Well, thank you.
Lucas: Yeah. But isn't it like the pot calling the kettle black? I mean, really, what standard of perfection are you holding Rafe up to? Because it sure as hell isn't your own.
Rafe: Okay, Nicole? Do not do this to yourself. Listen to me. This is not your fault.
Daniel: No, Rafe's right. We agreed to do this because it mattered to all of us--
Rafe: That's right--
Daniel: And that's not changed.
Rafe: Trust me, I watched Sami battle it out with EJ over those kids for years. I did not want to see you go through that.
Nicole: But now my son is gone. And--and this was all for nothing, and you two are gonna have to face so much trouble because you helped me.
Daniel: No, we knew the risks going in.
Rafe: That's right. We're here to protect you from EJ.
Daniel: All right? That still holds.
Hope: Don't test me, EJ. I'm serious, if you don't leave here right now, I'll arrest you for trespassing. Have time for that in your busy schedule?
EJ: Your family throwing their weight around doesn't change the fact that my son is dead. You killed him, sweetheart. You killed him. If it takes me until the last breath in my body, I'll make you pay.
Hope: Get out.
Marlena: My keys. She's got my phone, she's got my keys. Is she going after John?
Kristen: As much as I'd love to catch up with Roman, I'd hate for him to make the trip down here for nothing.
John: For nothing? Kristen, has it slipped your mind that you have more than a few outstanding warrants?
John: What's that?
Kristen: Said warrants.
John: Oh, like hell.
Kristen: According to this state's statute of limitations. You're so funny. You were never especially conversant in legal matters, were you?
John: You were never conversant in the truth.
Kristen: Well, you know, maybe I was confused at times back then, but I was never, ever stupid. I wouldn't have come back here if I thought I was going to be arrested. Now, I understand that we have some trust issues between us, so if you want to confirm that, I won't be offended.
John: Oh, you can count on that. In the meantime, stay away from me.
Kristen: Would you please just hear me out for a second? I do sense that my reappearance is somewhat unsettling for you, and I just want you to know that I'm not here to make trouble.
John: Come on, that's all you know how to make.
Kristen: Maybe at one time, but not now. I'm into repairing things now. Righting wrongs. Seeking forgiveness. I'm here to make amends.
Sami: Oh, I see. So because I lied to Rafe in the past, it gives him permission to lie to me now?
Lucas: Well, I'm sure he has reasons for that, and probably none of which had anything to do with you.
Sami: Yeah, of course he had reasons. But he's the one who wanted to start fresh with me. He's the one who asked me out on that date. And the truth is, he was lying to me the whole time before we even got started.
Lucas: Yeah, yeah, I hear you on that one.
Sami: Okay, maybe I picked the wrong person to talk to about this.
Lucas: No, I get it, I get it, you're trying to change. I get all that. But really, can you blame Rafe for lying? The whole reason why he lied was to keep EJ away from the baby, right? You, most of all, should understand that. You should get that.
Sami: I do. But the bottom line is, his secret with Nicole was more important to him than being honest with me. And I don't accept that.
Lucas: The man gave his word that he wouldn't say anything to anybody.
Sami: He told Carrie.
Lucas: He told Carrie! And that's what this is about, isn't it?
Sami: No--no, that's not--
Lucas: Yeah, it is, this is about Rafe and Carrie. You can't stand that.
Sami: No, I worked through that! We worked through the whole Carrie-Rafe thing.
Lucas: Did you really? And then he told her about Nicole. How'd you feel about that?
Sami: He should have trusted me with that information too.
Lucas: He's human, all right? Give the guy a break. He screwed up, so what? I mean, you always do this with Rafe. You put him on this high pedestal. He can't do anything wrong. He's this super-cop from heaven. He's my surrogate father to my kids, I love him--
Sami: Right. And, what?
Lucas: He's my dream boy.
Sami: What are y--
Lucas: You can't stand that he has a little chink in his armor. I mean, it's okay for you to be a screw-up, but not Rafe? Come on.
Sami: That's not true.
Lucas: What? Sami, he made a mistake. He's human, all right? He's human. He made an emotional decision for all the wrong reasons. Now, does that sound familiar to anybody?
Sami: That's not fair.
Lucas: It's not fair? I'll tell you what's not fair. You expect every man in your life to be perfect.
Lucas: You know what? Seriously, Sami, that's something you need to think about. Think about it long and hard, then get back to me.
Hope: EJ had no right to come here and accuse you of anything. Here.
Jennifer: Yeah, but EJ is sure that I am the reason Nicole's baby is dead.
Hope: I'm sorry, Cuz, I'm a little out of the loop on the details here. Was Nicole's baby really EJ's after all? Not Rafe's? And now he thinks you pushed Nicole down the stairs, forcing her to lose the baby.
Jennifer: Oh, yeah, and she's willing to tell anyone that will listen to her. But I'm telling you, it is not true.
Hope: Right after it happened, when you gave your statement to Roman, you said that you thought you'd pushed her.
Jennifer: Yes, I said that because I was-- I was really upset, and I just-- I couldn't think straight at that moment.
Hope: So you didn't push her.
Jennifer: No, I didn't push her. I have gone over it, and over it again in my mind. And yes, we were fighting. We were, but I didn't want her to fall. I didn't make her fall, I swear. And I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, then why did I say what I did? I did because I-I was scared, and I'm still scared, but I'm telling you the truth. I didn't do it. You have to believe me.
Rafe: Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no. You're not going in here. There's no way.
Daniel: What is it that you want?
EJ: I want to speak to Nicole. And with you two. So let's go, shall we?
Nicole: Guys. It's okay. We all need to know where we stand. ~~
John: Aren't amends usually reserved for life's little infractions? You know, like-- like cheating on a test, or-- or running a red light?
Kristen: I'm sure you must remember that I was in an extremely fragile emotional state at that time of my life.
John: And this is your idea of making it right. By making excuses for trying to murder my wife?
Kristen: I had suffered an unfathomable loss. And I'm not trying to excuse that, but it does happen to people. I mean, it happens. You act outside of your character. Isn't that happening right now, in Salem--something like that? Wasn't Jennifer Horton so upset about the death of her husband that she shoved a pregnant woman down a flight of stairs? Now, if Jennifer hadn't been mourning, and so incredibly grief-stricken, would she be in this predicament now? Where she could end up spending the rest of her life in prison?
Jennifer: Hope, please. Please tell me you believe me.
Hope: I do. Of course I do. You're my family--my cousin. I know you. And I know you're not lying about what happened to Nicole. Jen, I know you would never purposely hurt anyone. And I know that I would be lying if I said that was enough. Your initial statement to the police could really hurt your case.
Jennifer: Hope, I-I was horrified, and I was confused, and I wasn't sure--
Hope: No--Jen. You have to be sure. Any uncertainty at all shows that-- that you're covering up a lie. Badly. Okay, listen. You said that you went over it, and over it, and remembered that it wasn't deliberate.
Jennifer: Yes, and I know how that sounds. But there is someone that knows me, and cares enough about me to show me the truth, okay?
Hope: Is it the truth? Or is it that you just want it to be the truth?
Jennifer: No, it's the truth. And I'm so grateful that-- that I have people in my life who-- who want to fight, and help me through this.
Rafe: Let's make it quick. Nicole's upset enough.
EJ: I think we're all very upset, don't you?
Nicole: So what now, EJ? I mean, come on, haven't we lost everything that matters?
EJ: Yeah. We have. Now it's their turn.
Kristen: Look, I know it sounds silly. But it's true. I've had so much therapy. [Chuckling] I have had hours and hours of therapy.
John: Are you--are you kidding me with all this--
Kristen: What I'm trying to say is that I'm back. I mean, that person that you met all those years ago is back.
John: What are you, uh-- into fundraising, is that it?
Kristen: No, I'm into social working. It's what I do.
Kristen: I do a lot of it on the side, for free, but there's only so much that one person can do. It takes money to get the kids off the streets. And I know that you can't go back. But, we loved each other. Right? I mean-- we loved each other so much. And I guess that when you love somebody that strongly and that completely, it can turn into an obsession. I lost our baby. And then you started having feelings for Marlena, and I was just so terrified of losing you. I'm not making any excuses. Honestly. I take 100% responsibility for my actions--
John: I have absolutely no reason to believe a word that's coming out of your mouth.
Kristen: You sound just like your wife.
John: What'd you say?
Kristen: You sound like Marlena. She was doubting my sincerity as well.
John: So you saw my wife.
EJ: I don't think anybody would blame me for seeing you all go down in flames. Least of all you. You... could have your medical license taken away from you. I can make sure you never hold a badge again. And as for you, the architect of this entire fiasco-- this cruel, deceptive, and ultimately tragic disaster-- all for what? To perpetrate a lie against me.
Nicole: You stop. You stop threatening. Stop threatening to ruin everyone's lives. Just stop it, EJ!
EJ: Actually-- actually, I won't.
EJ: I could... and perhaps I should. But I won't.
Nicole: What does that mean?
EJ: It means that I've decided not to press legal or ethical charges, against any of you. I'm letting it go.
John: And when did you see Doc?
Kristen: Right before I came to see you.
Kristen: At the park. Hey, um--you're hurting me--
John: If anything has happened to her, I swear to god--
Marlena: John, I came by to warn--
(Sami has a flashback)
Rafe: Nicole's baby wasn't mine. It's EJ's.
EJ: The man you cast me aside for is not the man you thought he was at all.
Sami: [Sighing] Oh, God, I can't breathe. I can't concentrate.
John: You okay?
Marlena: I'm fine.
Kristen: John was so worried about you.
John: Stay out of this.
Kristen: Well, you were. He thinks that I came back to harm you, or to harm both of you, when I was saying nothing could be further from the truth.
Marlena: You're a liar.
Kristen: [Sighing] Not anymore. And I was just telling John that I've had hours and hours and hours of therapy.
Marlena: Therapy. What would your therapist say if they knew that you had stolen my cell phone so I couldn't warn John you were here?
John: You stole her phone?
Secretary: Excuse me, Dr. Evans?
Secretary: I was on a call when you rushed by me, so I didn't get a chance to tell you. I found your cell phone. You left it in the waiting area this morning.
Marlena: Thank you.
Daniel: So just to be clear, you're not pressing charges?
EJ: No. I'm not.
EJ: Because my son is dead. And as much as I hate what happened, and I hate the fact that you all lied to me, I think it's better that we move on, don't you?
Nicole: Do you really mean this?
EJ: When you lose something that's very precious, you start to trace your steps back. And the truth of the matter is, if I-- if I hadn't slept with Samantha-- Nicole, if that hadn't come between us, then this loss would never have happened. If you'll excuse me.
Kristen: Obviously, I made a mistake by trying to be direct and aboveboard. The wounds are way too fresh, even though it's been well over a decade. Anyway, um, I am so sorry for upsetting you both. I won't bother you again.
Lucas: What the Hell happened, Jennifer? People aren't seriously suggesting that you hurt Nicole on purpose, are they?
Jennifer: Oh, Lucas, they're very serious. And I didn't help my cause by being so out of it after it happened that I made it look like maybe I did push her.
Lucas: Wait a minute, you made it look like--you made it look like that to who?
Jennifer: To Roman.
Lucas: To Roman?
Jennifer: Yes, I just--
Lucas: Jennifer, why would you do that?
Jennifer: To make them understand the truth. I just have to make them see that.
Lucas: Well, Sami told me that EJ was the father of baby, and not Rafe.
Jennifer: It's more complicated than that, but that's the gist of it, yeah. I-I need to make a phone call really quick, will you excuse me?
Hope: Do you want us to go?
Jennifer: No, I'm good. I'll be--I'll be back in a minute.
EJ: I don't think you and I have anything left to talk about, do you?
Rafe: Well, I've known you and not liked you for a very long time. So forgive me if I'm not buying this personality transplant.
EJ: You know, I have real things that I need to take care of. I'm not going to be distracted by a couple of amateur fools like you, as my real plans fall by the wayside.
Rafe: You're talking about Jennifer.
EJ: Why would I want to go after you, anyway? You've lost everything that's important to you.
Rafe: Oh. So you think you have a clear path to Sami now that she's furious at me? Is that it?
EJ: No. I don't think Samantha has any interest in me. She's made that perfectly clear.
Rafe: You're not being straight with me.
EJ: No, I actually am being straight with you. You're just not used to it.
Nicole: EJ sounded almost sincere. I mean, is that even possible?
Daniel: I know. He lies so easily, it's hard to tell.
[Cell phone ringing]
Daniel: I have to take this.
Daniel: Jennifer. You okay?
Jennifer: Hey. Yeah, I just, um-- I wanted to let you know that EJ knows he was the baby's father. And I don't want you to be blindsided, 'cause he's really, really angry.
Daniel: Thank you, but, uh, I think everything's gonna work out. For everyone.
Jennifer: Wait, I-I don't get it.
Daniel: I know you didn't do anything on purpose to hurt Nicole. I believe that in my heart.
Jennifer: Yeah, that-- that's great, but--
Daniel: I gotta go.
Jennifer: Daniel, are you there?
Lucas: Hey. You want to tell me what that was all about?
[Knock at door]
Nicole: Was everything okay?
Daniel: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah.
Nicole: Did you really mean what you said earlier? That you want to move away from here and start building a new life with me?
Daniel: Yeah. Yeah, I've got nothing here. Except my past. Melanie, she's not coming back for who knows how long. My mother, she has Victor. And I've got... nothing. And no one to keep me here.
Nicole: Good. 'Cause I wa--I wanna do this right.
Daniel: I do too.
Nicole: I just-- I have one more thing to ask.
Daniel: You just name it.
Nicole: Are you really ready to walk away from Jennifer?
John: My attorney just confirmed it.
Marlena: They can't charge Kristen with anything?
John: She was telling the truth. The statute of limitations is up.
John: Maybe she's telling the truth about being in town for a family thing.
Marlena: Oh, I doubt that.
John: I don't know, Doc. She seemed pretty earnest in her need to t-- say that she was sorry.
Marlena: Please don't.
John: No, no, no, I'm just-- I'm just saying that she seem--
Marlena: Please don't trust her. Don't make that mistake again.
[Knock at door]
[Door clicking open]
Kristen: Hello. Do you have a moment for your sister?
EJ: I thought I made myself clear. Obviously not.
Kristen: Don't dismiss me so easily, EJ. I know that you're not the kind of man that accepts help very often. But I have a lot to offer.
EJ: I don't need your help.
Kristen: Actually, you really, really do.
EJ: Why don't you cut to the chase?
Kristen: I know what you want. I know how to get it for you.
(Another flashback for Sami)
Rafe: You are my heart. You are my everything. And I promise to spend the rest of my life making you happy, because you make my life worth living.
Sami: Oh--oh, I'm sorry, I--
Jennifer: Lucas, just lay off, please.
Lucas: I'm your brother and I'm worried about you, that's all.
Jennifer: Then don't grill me about Daniel.
Lucas: I'm not grilling you.
Hope: What about Daniel?
Jennifer: He's been an-- an amazing friend. And I know that we've had our rough times, but he saved my life, and it--it matters to me what happens to him. And I think he feels the same way, especially now.
Hope: What is it you're not telling me?
Jennifer: I was just talking to him, and--and telling him that EJ knows that he's the father, and he said that he had heard that. And he just told me that everything is gonna be fine. And there was just this tone in his voice, you know?
Hope: What is it?
Jennifer: He just-- just reassured me. Like he knew something.
Nicole: Daniel. You're saying you're willing to leave Salem. You're willing to-- to leave town and start a new life with me, but you still have feelings for Jennifer.
Daniel: Mm-hmm. Yes, I do. Yes, I do. But it's not--it's not mutual.
Nicole: Wha--oh, really? All right, you sure about that?
Daniel: It's not. She was back with Jack when he died. She's still mourning it, deeply mourning. They had a past, and a history. So the point, really, is just moot, really.
Nicole: How--how is it moot? Your feelings are your feelings.
Daniel: Well, let me tell you something, I'm not gonna just, uh, live my life pining over something, or someone, who I can't have. I'm not gonna do it. And if we leave town, I can assure you that you will never have to worry about that. I'm probably not even gonna see her again.
Nicole: Uh--what, great, so you think that by leaving town, by staying away from her, that everything's gonna be fine--
Daniel: No, no, no. I'm-- no, whoa--no, I am not justifying this. No, we are moving on. That's what this is. Because there is something-- I-I don't know what it is-- there is something between you and me, and we started it.
Nicole: Yeah, we did--
Daniel: We started to build on it.
Nicole: We did. And I-I-I thought we had something, I-I thought we would be happy as a family, with a baby. And I wasn't sure that you wanted us, but I guess now--
Daniel: Well, you know what? I'm sure. I am so sure. I need to know that you're okay with this, though. Are you gonna be okay knowing that I have feelings for someone else?
Nicole: Yes. Yes, I guess if-- if Jennifer is halfway across the country, I-- I can find a way to make you forget about her.
Daniel: Well, I'm willing to try.
Nicole: Me too. 1,000%.
Daniel: That's great. That's so great, 'cause we're gonna do this, okay? We're gonna do this, on one condition.
Nicole: Okay. All right, what is it?
Daniel: Okay, I don't want another terrible injustice on top of an already tragic situation.
Nicole: And by injustice, you mean?
Daniel: I mean, I cannot start a new life with you knowing that Jennifer's going to be back here paying for something that I know in my heart she did not do. For something that I think was an accident. It's not a crime. It's pretty simple. At least for me. Now, the question is, is it for you?
Nicole: Let me see if I understand you correctly. You're saying you will leave Salem, and start a new life with me, if I agree to drop the charges against Jennifer.
