Bailiff: All rise.
Judge Sims: Thank you. Be seated. Are we ready to resume, bailiff?
Bailiff: Please raise your right hand.
Judge Sims: That's good enough.
Bailiff: Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Rafe: I do.
Nick: Hey, aunt Maggie.
Maggie: Hi, honey.
Maggie: How you doing?
Nick: Good. Good to see you.
Maggie: Well, you all settled in your new place?
Nick: Yes, I love it. It's great.
Maggie: All you have to do is get a job, huh?
Nick: Yes. That's right. I'm working on that one.
Maggie: Well, you know, I can give you a reference if that's what you--
Nick: Oh, sorry.
Maggie: Oh, wait.
Maggie: Nick, do you want to tell me what's really going on?
Gabi: Hey, I'm so glad we got some free time because I've been up to my eyeballs with Ari and classes and-- what's going on? What's wrong?
Abigail: It's everything. [Crying]
Chad: All right, so you throw it sideways, like this. Then it flies through the air and comes back to you in a circle.
Theo: No way.
Chad: Yeah. Check this out. Mm.
Theo: It didn't come back. Did you keep the receipt?
Chad: I probably just threw it wrong.
Theo: That's mom's tree.
Chad: How is it?
Theo: She used to let me climb it. I miss her.
Cameron: So do I.
Sonny: You want to play peek-a-boo with daddy?
Will: Oh, yeah.
Will: Hello? Hello?
[Knock on door]
Sonny: Oh, Maggie's early.
Will: Okay. No, I don't think so. She would've called. He--oh, hi.
Kate: Hi, honey.
Kate: I need to see that baby, and I need to give her a hug.
Kate: Hi, precious. How are you? Yes. Yes. There she is.
Will: So, um, did you just testify? How'd it go?
Kate: Well, it could've gone better.
Will: Okay. Who's on the stand now?
Kate: They just called Rafe, so maybe he can help Sami.
Melinda: Mr. Hernandez, please tell us what you did for a living before you were injured.
Rafe: I was--am a detective with the Salem pd.
Melinda: And before that?
Rafe: I was a field agent with the FBI for 15 years.
Melinda: Detective, did you work with Joseph Bernardi?
Melinda: And what is your relationship to the defendant?
Rafe: She's my ex-wife.
Melinda: That puts you in a unique position here, doesn't it, detective? You have more intimate knowledge of both the victim and the defendant than anyone we could possibly call.
Justin: Objection. Counsel is testifying.
Judge Sims: Sustained.
Melinda: Detective, as an officer of the court, you are sworn to tell the truth, are you not?
Melinda: And the truth is, you have lied for Samantha Brady in the past, haven't you?
Justin: Your honor, I'm confused. Is counsel attempting to discredit her own witness?
Melinda: Your honor, all I wish to do is establish a complete and full picture of the witness's relationship to both the victim and the defendant. I think the jury should hear the lengths to which this man has been willing to go in the past to--
Justin: Objection! If counsel is so eager to testify herself, I suggest she take the witness stand.
Judge Sims: Counselors, it's late in the day. We'd all like to get through this in one piece. Now please, you know the rules. Objection overruled. But the prosecutor's commentary will be stricken. Proceed.
Melinda: Detective, would you like me to repeat the question?
Melinda: Detective, would you like to answer the question?
Melinda: "No," what?
Rafe: No, I would not like to answer the question.
Melinda: Permission to treat the witness as hostile.
Judge Sims: Granted.
Melinda: Detective, is it true that you lied for Samantha Brady in the past?
Rafe: Yes. I have.
Melinda: Please tell the court exactly what the lie or lies you told for ms. Brady entailed.
Justin: Your honor, this is absurd. The witness and the defendant were married.
Melinda: Your honor, this goes to credibility.
Judge Sims: Which is why the state can inquire as to the nature of the lies. But please keep it brief.
Melinda: Thank you, your honor. Isn't it a fact, detective, that you aided and abetted ms. Brady in a potential crime while she was pregnant with EJ DiMera's child?
Rafe: We did not commit a crime.
Melinda: Then, let's focus on the lie. What did you do for ms. Brady?
Rafe: Well, I lied to help Sami keep her daughter, grace Rafaela, away from her father, EJ DiMera.
Theo: Uncle Cameron!
Theo: We have a boomerang.
Cameron: Ooh, nice. You know what, if you take it right over there where there aren't any trees, it might be a little easier for you.
Chad: Hmm. [Exhales] You're good. I couldn't get him away from that tree all morning.
Cameron: Ah, well, that's-- that's Lexie's tree, so--
Cameron: You know what, Chad? You need to prepare him.
Chad: For? Ah. Well, the kid lost his mom last year. You want me to tell him that his uncle could die too?
Cameron: No, that's not what I'm saying, but you should tell your family you're sick, okay? You need to let people help you.
Gabi: Okay, so wait, JJ's still in jail right now?
Abigail: It is such a nightmare, Gabi. I feel like such a fool. He played me as well as he played my mom. And I should've known that he was in trouble, you know? It was so obvious.
Gabi: No, you're gonna think that now, but honestly, you don't think about that at the time. You know, my brother always felt guilty. He thought that he should've known that my sister was dealing. When she got arrested--
Abigail: Wait, whoa. Wait, what?
Gabi: Wait, you didn't know that? That's how she ended up working for the cops. She got arrested, went to prison, and then she cut a deal.
Abigail: [Whispers] Oh, my God. JJ can't go to prison. He's just a kid. Look what happened to Nick.
Maggie: Nick, what's going on?
Nick: If I tell you, can we keep this between us? Can you give me your word?
Maggie: Well, I can't promise you that until I know what you're gonna tell me.
Nick: Well, it's a good thing. It's a good thing. I'm trying to help Gabi get back into modeling. It was her dream. It was all she wanted before, you know, before she got pregnant and before we got together.
Maggie: So what's the big secret?
Nick: Well, Gabi doesn't know. And I don't want her to get her hopes up if it doesn't pan out.
Maggie: You're still in love with her.
Maggie: Aren't you?
Will: I don't understand. What could you say that would hurt mom?
Kate: [Sighs] The prosecutor asked if I had ever seen or heard of Sami using a gun. And I had to admit that, yes, I heard she had threatened someone with a gun.
Will: All right. Who did she threaten?
Kate: Nick Fallon.
Melinda: So you willingly lied for Samantha Brady in the past?
Melinda: And did you lie under oath for ms. Brady?
Melinda: As an officer of the court, you couldn't do that without endangering your job, your pension, your health benefits. Isn't that true?
Rafe: Yes, it is.
Melinda: Okay. So...was detective Joseph Bernardi a friend of yours?
Rafe: Colleague. He was a co-worker.
Melinda: It was much more than that, wasn't he, detective? The state offers this as exhibit C. These are records of text messages between you and Joe Bernardi. Messages about covering a shift, so Joe could go to his son's little league game.
Rafe: Yeah, I did a favor for a co-worker.
Melinda: And there are also numerous receipts from both your account and Joe Bernardi's which indicate that you shared at least nine meals together in the last year. So I ask you again. Were you and Joe Bernardi friends?
Rafe: We were friendly colleagues.
Melinda: How long did you work together?
Rafe: It was, uh, a little bit over two years.
Melinda: And in all that time, did you ever see or hear anything that would make you think that Joe Bernardi was anything other than an honest, loyal officer in the Salem police department?
Rafe: No. No, I didn't.
Nick: [Chuckles] This is so embarrassing. Gabi and I are close. We still have that. And I-- [Inhales] I learned from my mistakes. You know, it's not like before.
Maggie: You sure?
Nick: Yeah. Because I'm not trying to control Gabi. I'm just, you know, I'm gonna send out some pictures and some resumes, and if an offer comes in, I'll give it to Gabi, and she can do whatever she wants.
Maggie: Okay. I understand that you need to make amends.
Nick: So...between us?
Maggie: I won't say anything to Gabi. Okay, my sweet.
Maggie: Take care.
Nick: Mwah. Bye, aunt Maggie. I'm gonna make this happen for you.
Gabi: JJ isn't Nick. He's a minor. It's his first offense. He's not gonna go to prison.
Abigail: I don't want my brother to be damaged, but I'm scared that if he just walks, he could get himself in even worse trouble.
Gabi: Yeah. Yeah, you want him... you want him to get enough punishment to teach him a lesson, but you want enough help to keep him clean.
Abigail: I have to do more for him somehow.
Gabi: You will. You will, okay? And you have to let your friends help you. You've got me and Sonny and will, and you got Cameron and Chad. Still juggling, right?
Abigail: Uh, not exactly.
Abigail: Cameron and I are still friends.
Gabi: You chose Chad?
Abigail: No, actually, Cameron kind of decided for me.
Chad: Well, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not checking out any time soon.
Cameron: That's good. That's good. How's treatment going?
Chad: Doctor seems happy.
Cameron: Okay, all right. Well, what's the protocol?
Chad: Well, I don't know the medical terms. It's just some experimental thing.
Cameron: Okay, but--
Chad: I just do what they tell me, okay?
Cameron: Is there some sort of staff support, like maybe a shrink or something?
Chad: Jeez, will you let it go? I don't need any help, okay?
Cameron: I'm just saying.
Chad: You're saying too much, especially to Abigail. And she made her choice, man. Okay?
Cameron: You know, I don't want to see her hurt when you're--
Chad: What, you think I'm gonna hurt her? How? By dying?
Theo: Who's dying?
Will: How do you know mom waved a gun at Nick?
Kate: Because Nick told me.
Sonny: Well, then it must be true.
Kate: Okay, you know, we're gonna have to leave that to other people to decide. I had to give them something.
Sonny: This sucks. Nick is lying to hurt your mom.
Will: I know. What did he say exactly?
Kate: He said that she waved a gun at him and told him to stay away from her and her family.
Sonny: Okay, well, it sounds like he exaggerated a fight when he was at odds with our family. And that's certainly how it has to sound when he's on the stand. 'Cause the prosecution is gonna subpoena him now for sure.
Will: Do you mind watching Ari just for a little while?
Kate: No, I would say I would love to do that. Do you mind if I bring her by though to see Rafe when he gets back from court?
Will: No, of course not. Okay. Great. Thank you.
Kate: Okay. Bye-bye, sweetie.
Kate: Oh, your uncle Rafe is going to need to see a friendly face today. Yes, he is.
Melinda: In your experience, was Joe Bernardi a good cop?
Rafe: Yes. But I was in a coma the night he was shot.
Melinda: Yes, you were. So you don't have any memories from the actual shooting or the aftermath.
Melinda: And when you awoke and you discovered that a fellow detective had been killed, how did you react?
Rafe: I was shocked. Till I heard why.
Melinda: Detective, listen carefully to the question. Do you have personal knowledge or personal reason to believe there was any reason on God's green earth for Joe Bernardi to want you dead?
Melinda: Thank you. Nothing further.
Abigail: Cameron kept making excuses, saying that he had to focus on his career and that he didn't have time for anything else besides work.
Gabi: Uh, hello? He found time to dance in that club in Chicago, so-- okay, so you settled?
Abigail: N-no. I didn't mean to make it sound like that at all, Gabi. I'm happy with Chad. He's great, and he's sweet and romantic. And you know, he has no questions.
Gabi: Yeah, when he's into someone, that's it.
Abigail: Right. Exactly, and that's how I am too. [Laughs] Okay, that's how I want to be.
Gabi: So this is good. This is good, right? What?
Abigail: Nothing, I-- I just feel like there's something that Cameron's not telling me.
Gabi: Like what?
Abigail: I'm not sure. I don't know. Um, but he basically told me not to get serious with Chad.
Chad: I'm dying to learn how you threw that boomerang. It looked pretty good over there, buddy.
Theo: It's all in the wrist.
Chad: Yeah? Can you show me?
Chad: Like that, huh? All right, let me try it.
Theo: You need some practice.
Chad: Yeah. Did you see how close that was? You need to back off, Cameron.
Cameron: No. You're family, Chad, and I'm gonna dog you relentlessly if you're not doing everything you can to get better.
Kate: Okay, here we go. We are off to see our uncle Rafe. Yes, we are. To see-- Maggie, what are you doing here?
Maggie: Hello, sweetheart. You knew I was coming for a visit, didn't you? I mean, Sonny and will knew I was coming.
Kate: Ooh. Well, they're not here, and they didn't tell me. Well, I mean, but you know, they have a lot going on. So I'm--yes.
Maggie: Oh, well. Look, I'll just leave my lemon bars and have a little visit with miss Arianna, huh? Huh?
Kate: Oh, uh... Maggie, I was just going out.
Maggie: Well, I won't keep you long.
Justin: Detective, do you believe Sami Brady could shoot Joe Bernardi in cold blood?
Rafe: No. No, Sami saved my life.
Melinda: Objection, your honor. We just established this witness has no direct knowledge of that night.
Judge Sims: Sustained.
Justin: Detective, if Joe Bernardi was a dirty cop, would you or anyone else in the department necessarily know that?
Rafe: No. No. Not in our department. No. Cops know what another cop would look for, and... anyone who was on the take, they would have to be really good at hiding it, or else, you know, they'd lose their job.
Justin: Thank you. Nothing further.
Melinda: Redirect, your honor. Even as an experienced investigator, did you have any suspicion that Joe Bernardi was dirty?
Melinda: Even now, you have no evidence of any kind that Joe Bernardi was anything other than a good, clean cop. Isn't that true?
Melinda: Nothing further.
Judge Sims: Given the hour, we'll adjourn here for the day. [Bangs gavel]
Bailiff: All rise.
[Door opens, closes]
Chad: Thought I'd see if there was any news on JJ.
Abigail: My mom's meeting with the lawyer right now.
Chad: [Sighs] Okay. Can I kind of distract you for an hour, please?
Abigail: Please, yeah.
Chad: Okay, look. I know you don't feel like celebrating or anything, but I have to choose one of these to carry at the club, so I need your help.
Abigail: Hmm. Actually if I ever felt like drinking early, it would be that one.
Chad: Well, I hope it's a lot more fun than it sounded.
Abigail: It will be fun. You brought bubbles. We'll make it fun.
Chad: How's yours?
Abigail: It's a little sweet.
Chad: Yeah, some people like that.
Abigail: I like it with a little more bite. Something with a little bit more substance.
Abigail: Something like this?
Chad: Nothing just sweet, then?
Chad: It's hard to find those two things in the same place.
Abigail: It is, isn't it?
Rafe: I blew it.
Jordan: You told the truth. That's all you could do.
Rafe: Let's go.
Maggie: Aren't you the prettiest girl in Salem?
Kate: Yes. Yes, she is.
Maggie: [Chuckles] And where is your great-grandma Kate taking you?
Kate: [Scoffs] Oh, my God. Maggie, I'm right here. Talk to the face. I'm taking her to see her uncle Rafe.
Maggie: How's he doing?
Kate: Well, he was doing better every day up until now when he was called to testify at Sami's trial.
Maggie: Oh, that must be killing him. I mean, he does know that she shot that man to save him.
Kate: As he is constantly reminded.
Maggie: And I expect he's very grateful. You don't think it's a miracle that Sami had a gun in the first place to use?
Kate: I have to go.
Maggie: Okay. Give Rafe our love.
Nick: Hey, I'm glad you could make it.
Gabi: I'm gonna go see Rafe.
Nick: Oh, I just thought maybe you needed help with your classes.
Gabi: Um, no. I'm good. I got smart, and I took a lighter load this semester. I need to get a job.
Gabi: Hey, where's Ari?
Will: Hi. Oh, Kate has her, and she's taking her to go see Rafe. Do you mind if we have a minute alone with Nick?
Sonny: Yeah, we just need to speak with him for a minute.
Nick: Yeah, it's okay. I'll call you later.
Will: Okay, see you.
Nick: Uh, what's up?
Will: You need to stop trying to incriminate my mom.
Justin: Didn't help, that's for sure.
EJ: I cannot believe that bloody idiot walked into that trap.
Sami: Is it really that bad?
Justin: Once Melinda got Rafe declared a hostile witness, she could ask him leading questions. And it made everything he said against you weigh that much more.
EJ: Once we get Bernardi's evidence on record, things will change, right, Justin?
Justin: Assuming it holds up, yes. I'll see you in the morning.
Sami: Thanks, Justin.
Justin: Hang in there.
EJ: It's early. Things always look the worst at this point.
Sami: Hey, Johnny--he had that football game today, didn't he?
EJ: Yes, actually Mary took him. Allie and Sydney are cheering him on.
Sami: [Chuckles] You're gonna pick them up, right? And you'll let them know that I called, that I--
Sami: Okay. Um, and you're gonna make sure to help Allie with her math homework, right?
Sami: She still has trouble with that.
EJ: I know she does.
EJ: You'll be back soon to help her with that yourself. Okay?
Sami: I love you.
EJ: [Whispers] I love you.
Sami: Good night.
EJ: Toothbrush and paste. Don't just wet it. I'll check. Lights out in half an hour. [Sighs]
Chad: Okay, look. I know--like, I know this is a weird time for you. I just--I don't want to take advantage of you, you know.
Abigail: You're not. You're not taking advantage. You're... you're being my friend. The guy that I can say anything to. The guy who doesn't make me wonder how he feels.
Chad: Sounds boring.
Abigail: Mm-mm. No. It's what I need. What I want.
Chad: The funny thing is... I haven't even begun to show you how I really feel.
Rafe: I blew it. If I'd just answered Trask straight out, she couldn't have asked the questions that she did.
Jordan: Okay, make a fist. Push as hard as you can.
Rafe: [Breathing heavily]
Jordan: Okay, rest.
Rafe: No. No, no, no, I want to work. Right now, let's go.
Jordan: The trip to the courthouse was enough. You've already set yourself back.
Rafe: All the more reason I need to do this. Come on.
Kate: Hello. I think we know exactly what uncle Rafe needs.
Jordan: Perfect timing. Spend time with your niece, and then get some sleep.
Rafe: Jordan, thanks for taking me to court.
Jordan: It's my job.
Kate: She has such great people skills.
Kate: Okay, here we go.
Rafe: You bring her here. Come here.
Kate: Do you want to say hi to your uncle?
Rafe: Oh, my go--look at you.
Kate: Oh, my gosh. Here we go.
Rafe: You got so big already.
Rafe: Oh, God.
Kate: Here we go.
Rafe: Can I see her?
Kate: [Laughs] How did court go?
Rafe: Ah, well... I didn't help Sami, that's for sure. I think it's gonna get worse for her before it gets better. Hey.
Kate: [Laughs] Oh, you can squeeze that finger, right?
Sonny: You said that Sami threatened you with a gun.
Nick: Uh, thanks. Um, yeah, she did.
Nick: Why did she threaten me with a gun?
Nick: Well, because when she broke into my room, she took some money, and I guess she didn't like the way that I asked for it back.
Will: Hmm. You threatened her.
Nick: I was angry. But she was the one who, you know, took out a gun and said that she was gonna blow me away.
Will: Okay, how much money was it?
Nick: It was $30,000.
Sonny: [Chuckles] Which you'd come by legitimately?
Nick: It was a friend's money. It was a friend's money, and I was investing it for him. And I really couldn't afford to lose it. But I really don't understand what we're talking about. What's the big deal?
Sonny: You told this story to Kate.
Nick: Yeah, so?
Nick? Nick Fallon?
You're a tough guy to find.
Nick: What's this?
You've been served.
Nick: Are you serious?
Will: Yes, and now you get to tell that story at the trial.
Sami: Dear EJ, by the time you read this, it will probably be night, and you'll be dreading the dark, just like I am. It's not noisy here at night. Weird, right? It's quiet. And u know how much I hate silence. But for once, I'm glad. Because last night, I finally found the words I need to say to you.
[Cell phone rings]
Abigail: Mom, what's up? Okay. Yeah, I'm home. I'll be here. Thanks.
Chad: Um, what happened?
Abigail: They can't get a bail hearing for JJ, so he is spending the night in jail.
Chad: Mm, I'm--I'm sorry. Look, they'll put him someplace for juveniles, okay? He'll be all right. He'll be okay.
Abigail: My mom's so scared. So am I.
Chad: Okay, what can I do? Just tell me.
Abigail: Nothing. You're here. That's all.
Abigail: [Sighs] My mom's gonna be home soon, so--
Chad: Okay, we should probably put these up. All right.
Chad: Call me any time, day or night.
Abigail: I will. Thank you.
Sami: I've always been good at finding the right words when I'm mad at you. But when it comes to how much I told you and all the reasons why, what always comes out is "you're handsome, charming, good to me and the kids." But those words are so...small next to what it is that I feel. You remember that first night we spent together last February? I put my head on your chest, and I could hear your heart beating. And I remembered how many times over the years I've had to do that. Think about it. How many times have I found you on the ground, near dead, afraid your heart had stopped? And every time, EJ, even when I was the one who'd put you there--hell, especially when I was the one who'd put you there, I'd panic. Because I knew that if your heart stopped... part of me would die too. You've carried me in that stubborn heart of yours for so many years. You loved me without question, no matter what I did. I can't believe that now, when I finally understand what a gift that is, that we've ended up apart again. I can feel how much it hurts you to see me here. And maybe that's the good news? Because for once, I honestly hurt more for you than I do for myself. Because now I carry you in my heart the way you've always carried me.
Will: Now--[Clears throat] The question that you need to ask yourself is, haven't you done enough damage to me and my family?
Nick: Will, I'm sorry.
Will: Listen, Nick. I know how you feel about my mom, but would it feel good to send her to prison?
Will: okay. Listen, what she did saved Rafe's life. He is Gabi's brother. And you want a chance, this is it. Do not-- do not make this worse.
Sonny: Do you see will now? Imagine if he knew that you and Gabi were sleeping together. He's your cousin, your family. Do right by him for once.
Kate: You were boxed in. We all were. Sami did what she did in the past. It's not like we can lie on the stand.
Rafe: Sami saved my life. I know that. You know it too.
Gabi: Court was rough?
Rafe: [Sighs] Yeah.
Kate: Justin and EJ will not let Sami go to prison. But Sami isn't your problem.
Gabi: Kate's right. You need to focus on physical therapy. Hey.
Kate: You're gonna need all your strength to get you through that.
Gabi: Yeah, you just tell Uncle Rafe to get better so that he can play peek-a-boo.
Rafe: You already know how to play peek-a-boo? Do you?
Sami: It'd be easy for me to give up right now. I know I almost did, and I am so sorry for that. It won't happen again. I promise you, I will never stop fighting for our family. For us. You taught me that. I will never, ever give up, EJ, and you can't either. I will get out of here. I will come home to you and our kids. Get ready for a lifetime of waking up on your back, every morning, because I will be there beside you every night, my head on your chest, listening. That's how I go to sleep in here. I close my eyes, and that's where I go. You're with me. I hear your steady, unbending, perfect heartbeat. And I breathe with it. With you. I love you, EJ DiMera. Listen for me. For us. Soon. Your Samantha."
