Episode #12171 ~ Gabi begs Sonny not to tell Will her secret; Nick sees Gabi with Cameron; Chad & Abigail get physical.

Provided By Suzanne

EJ: Well, I'm here to talk about what I can do for you.

Melinda: Oh?

EJ: I know how much you want to put my father and myself behind bars, so I'm here to give you the opportunity to do just that.

Cameron: [Sighs]

Maxine: Hey, have you seen Jennifer Horton?

Cameron: No. Why?

Maxine: I'm worried about that woman. What with everything going on with JJ, and poor Abigail. Must be tearing her up her brother's in so much trouble.

Cameron: Yeah, I'm--I'm sure it is.

Maxine: She's lucky, though, to have someone special in her life right now. You know, someone to lean on.

Gabi: What did you expect Nick to do?

Will: I don't expect anything.

Gabi: [Scoffs] It's the truth, will, okay, your mom did point a gun at him and threatened to kill him.

Will: Well, he threatened her first.

Gabi: [Sighs] Fine. Okay, can we just drop this, please?

Will: No. Look, you need to hear this. Listen, with the way he's been behaving lately, I'm even more relieved that you guys aren't married. Honestly, I wish you guys weren't friends.

Nick: I didn't want to testify against Sami. Kate kind of made that happen.

Hope: Yeah, I heard. I don't want to testify either, believe me. I'm due in court after the break, but I wanted to talk to you first.

Nick: Because Vargas got busted and now you're worried?

Hope: It looked like he really turned his life around. But now he's heading back to Statesville.

Nick: And now you're afraid I'm right behind him.

Justin: Hey, Sami.

Sami: Hey. Where's EJ?

Justin: I thought he'd be here.

Sami: I haven't seen him since court. [Sighs] He feels so awful. He probably just had to go do something.

Justin: Oh, God. I hope he's not--

Sami: Making things worse? How could he do that?

Melinda: You have my attention.

EJ: Yes, I thought I would.

Melinda: What do you propose?

EJ: I give you the head of Stefano DiMera on a platter.

Melinda: You would testify.

EJ: Mm-hmm.

Melinda: I can't give you immunity in any form.

E I'm aware.

Melinda: So let's be clear.

EJ: You can put us both away.

Melinda: Are you just doing this because you had a sudden attack of conscience?

EJ: It's a deal. There are terms, nonnegotiable.

Melinda: What do you want?

EJ: I want all charges against Samantha dropped. I want her home with the children.

I give you the proffer against my father. You make it look like it came from Samantha, and in exchange, she goes free.

Melinda: I'm supposed to let your fiancée walk on murder one?

EJ: Ms. Trask... Melinda... off the record?

Melinda: Sure, EJ.

EJ: [Sighs] You know in whatever it is that you use for a heart that Samantha did not shoot Bernardi in cold blood. Nobody who knows her believes that. And people have been more than willing to believe the worst about her over the years. The shooting was justified.

Melinda: Not according to the evidence.

EJ: According to the very limited evidence beyond which you refuse to look. Samantha is innocent, and I'm not going to allow you to send her to prison.

Melinda: That sounds dangerously close to threatening a special prosecutor.

EJ: Well, it shouldn't. It should sound like deep and sincere concern for your choices. Look, I'm handing you the opportunity to put the DiMera family out of business. With my father and myself behind bars, that is exactly what this would do. Do you have any idea for how many years the little people of this town have been trying to stop us? I'm giving you the opportunity to do that in one fell swoop.

Melinda: It is an extraordinary proposition.

EJ: Think about it. There's a vacancy in the senate next election cycle. You could run for governor. I don't care. I just want Samantha free.

Melinda: You really love her, don't you?

EJ: Do we have a deal?

Melinda: Sorry, I was just stuck on that. From what I'd seen and heard, the DiMera men used women like tissues, wadded them up and tossed them out when they were do . I didn't think that any of you had a genuine feeling, much less a willingness to sacrifice yourselves for anyone else. I mean, that's...

EJ: Do... we have a deal? I'll expect Samantha free by the end of the day.

Melinda: It's not going to happen, Mr. DiMera. Here's my deal. Your fiancée is going down for murder one.

EJ: I'll give you a murder charge against Stefano DiMera.

Melinda: Ms. Brady killed a cop.

EJ: While defending the life of another cop.

Melinda: I can't let her walk.

EJ: She's a Brady. Do you know what that means? Her family runs the entire police department of this town. Do you really want to try cases in that courtroom after you've locked up the police commissioner's daughter?

Melinda: Nobody will doubt the law is fair and unbiased.

EJ: Fair? This is a hatchet job. She is innocent!

Melinda: Steady.

EJ: How can you be so single-minded and so idiotic? How can you, without so much as consulting your superiors, turn do d a deal that would put two DiMeras behind bars?

Melinda: I don't need permission to run this case as I see fit.

EJ: You're making a big mistake.

Melinda: I don't think so, EJ. Here's my bet. When you see the love of your life dragged off in chains, you will lose it, and you will do something stupid, and I will get you anyway. And then we can make a deal for your father. I'll have all of you in jail before the year is out.

Sami: Hey, um, Justin, don't give EJ a hard time about the money thing. I get why he did it. Hell, I would've done the same thing. It's killing him that he hurt the case.

Justin: You know how badly it backfired.

Sami: I saw the jury's faces. I get how bad it is.

Justin: I'm sorry, Sami.

Sami: Where's your pep talk, counselor? Come on.

Justin: [Chuckles] Is that what you want?

Sami: I guess we, um, have some plans to make.

Lucas: Finally.

Justin: Hey, Lucas. He's been calling and asking for an update.

Sami: Hey, Lucas.

Lucas: Hey. I guess I'll get my update now, won't I?

Justin: Yeah. See you in court.

Sami: [Chuckles] Okay. Well, you're the only guy in my life who hasn't been called to testify against me.

Lucas: Well, I think that's lucky for you.

Sami: [Chuckles] I don't know, I think it's the one time you couldn't make it worse.

Lucas: Seriously? Come on, we don't have that long, so just give me the short version, 50 words or less.

Sami: I only need five. It's bad. Really, really bad.

Cameron: Hold on, Maxine. Abigail and I--we're just friends.

Abigail: What?

Chad: I, uh... Abigail... you're the best thing to happen to me in so long. And... I--for once, I want to be smart and think and not...

Abigail: Not... okay, so you don't want to--

Chad: Oh, no, no, yeah. Hell, yeah. Yes, yes. But I know it's--it's different for you. Isn't it? I mean, really.

Abigail: Yeah. You're right.

Chad: Okay? And I don't want you to do anything you wouldn't normally do because you're upset with your life right now. And if it's not the right time, then...

Abigail: It is the right time, Chad. It is exactly the right time. Not because I'm upset, but because I want to do something that I wouldn't normally do for the first time with you.

Maxine: Oh, I'm sorry, I shouldn't assume.

Cameron: Oh, don't worry about it, okay? You want some coffee?

Maxine: No, thanks.

Cameron: Okay.

Maxine: Poor thing. [Chuckles] You've really got it bad for that girl.

[Soft music]

Like standing in the warm sun arms open wide like I can fly like breathing in the evening air I say a prayer and you're right there just one kiss and I'm so high just one look into your eyes you make me feel so alive for the first time I'm free for the first time I believe in love sweet love it's just for us for us just one kiss and I'm so high just one look into your eyes you make me feel so alive so alive so alive

Hope: Vargas really helped us out when we needed it. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't have made it to smith island in time. You and will might be dead. Gabi and the baby might've died. You know, if I were you, I'd be really grateful to the guy.

Nick: I was. But not to the point of helping him with anything illegal.

Hope: I know you're off parole. But I'm still a little concerned about some of the choices you're making.

Nick: Really?

Hope: Yeah. We're not leaving you alone this time. So please tell me what is going on with you and Gabi.

Nick: [Sighs]

Gabi: How many times do you expect Nick to apologize?

Will: I don't care how many times he apologizes, I'm not gonna trust him.

Gabi: What, you wanted him to commit perjury in court?

Will: No, of course not. Nick would never lie. You know that better than anybody, don't you, Gabi?

Sonny: What? You didn't expect me to defend Nick, did you?

Gabi: Will's not being reasonable. Okay, I know he's stressed out about his mom's trial, but he's just not being fair.

Sonny: Again, that's not a good argument. You should be glad that he doesn't know you're sleeping with the guy.

Gabi: Yeah. Yeah, that is a good thing, because if he found out and blew up, then I would have no choice but to take Arianna and move out. On Sonny: Is that a threat? You would take will's daughter away from him?

[ Baby crying ]

Gabi: Shh, shh, shh. I didn't mean for it to sound like that. I just--I don't want will to know about me and Nick. It won't help anything.

Sonny: I agree.

Gabi: Okay.

Sonny: I still hate this. Will and I do not keep secrets from each other.

Gabi: You're not hurting will, you're helping Ari's parents get along. It's a good thing, really.

Will: Hey. What's up?

Sonny: Nothing. We were just, um, talking about the schedule today, and you and I have Ari this afternoon.

Will: Sweet.

Gabi: I have to visit Rafe.

Sonny: That sounds good. You should do that.

Will: Listen, um... it's not gonna be realistic to drop the subject of Nick, okay? As long as he's still around, we still have to deal with it.

Gabi: Yeah, you've made it very clear how you feel. I don't think there's anything else left to say.

Will: Okay.

Hope: And before you deny it, you should know that Maggie already told me about the modeling thing.

Nick: Okay, she told me that she was gonna keep that a secret for now.

Hope: From Gabi.

Nick: I don't want anybody talking about--

Hope: Listen, Nick, I meant what I just said, okay? Your family is here, and we will talk to each other. We're not letting you go off the rails again, okay? Hey, we love you.

[Cell phone rings]

Hope: Oh. I've got to go to court. It was good to see you.

Nick: I'll see you soon. I hope.

Hope: Absolutely.

Nick: [Sighs]

Chad: Hey, you okay?

Abigail: Better than okay.

Chad: You're not sorry, are ya?

Abigail: Oh, I am. That I waited so long.

Sami: You know what, you're right, we don't have a lot of time, and actually I need to ask you to help me with some things. I have to get my affairs in order here.

Las: Sami, no, it's not-- it's not necessary.

Sami: No, so I, um--I wrote some letters for the kids. Here, I, um, want you to give them to them for me, and, um--

Lucas: Are you sure? You sure it's this bad, really?

Sami: Haven't you been listening?

Lucas: Yes, I've been listening, but you have a tendency to be dramatic every now and then, so I just thought that's what you were doing, but... what about EJ? EJ should be helping you, he should be getting you out of this. What's going on?

Sami: He's trying to be positive.

Lucas: He's trying to be positive? He should be getting you out of this. DiMeras don't go to jail. That's it, it's the least he could do.

Sami: Lucas--

Lucas: Sami, it's the least you should expect from that guy.

Sami: EJ is trying. I mean, I feel him. I'm sitting next to him, and I can feel how desperate he is.

Lucas: Desperate DiMera. Never a good thing.

EJ: It's me.

Abigail: Why is it such a big deal?

Chad: Well, if it wasn't a big deal, then I did something wrong.

Abigail: No. [Scoffs] I meant my status.

Chad: Oh. Oh, you mean the whole virgin thing. Yeah. Can I say that now, now that it's past tense?

Abigail: Fine. Today only. Then we are never talking about it ever again.

Chad: Okay, okay. But there's nothing wrong with that, you know. Waiting for the right time or the right person.

Abigail: Yeah, I know.

Chad: So did you, um... was I... I was--was I...

Abigail: Yes and yes. What about you? I mean, it must've been kind of weird for you, since it was my--

Chad: No, no, no. You were--you were a total pro. I mean, not a total pro. I mean, it's not--it's not like you needed an instruction manual or anything.

Abigail: Mm-hmm, an--an instruction manual? Right. You know, you are so much better when you're not talking.

Chad: Yeah, I get that a lot.

[Both laugh]

Abigail: Hey, um... thanks for hanging in there with me when I was kind of, um, going back and forth.

Chad: Hey, there's no one else here, so let's keep it that way, all right?

Abigail: Sure.

[Cell phone rings]

Abigail: Oh, my gosh, seriously?

Chad: [Groans]

Abigail: The minute you say no one else is here.

Chad: Oh, it's the club. I'll get rid of them in two seconds, all right?

Abigail: Yeah.

Chad: Oh, sorry.

Abigail: Aah. Go ahead. [Laughs] [Sighs]


Cameron: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Here, hang on, let me help.

Gabi: Thanks, Cameron.

Nick: You missed one.

Cameron: Here you go.

Gabi: Thanks.

Cameron: I'll see you around.

Gabi: Yeah. Thanks for, uh--oh. What's going on?

Nick: Nothing. Just, like--what was that about?

Sami: I want you to promise me you're gonna try to get along with EJ for me. For Allie's sake. Please just promise you'll try. 'Cause Allie and Johnny and Sydney, they need to be together. They're so tight, and this is-- this is gonna be really difficult for them, and I know you don't want to make Allie suffer any more than she already will.

Lucas: Yeah, I know, but it's not gonna come to that, okay?

Sami: That's not a promise, Lucas. I want you to promise that you will get along with EJ.

Lucas: I will. I promise. I pinkie swear. Now I have no choice, right?

Sami: Right.

Lucas: Don't worry. It's gonna be--it's gonna be fine. I mean, the truth always comes out.

Time to take you back to court.

EJ: Yes, I understand there's no turning back. I'm certain. No, this is our only option.

Johnny: Dad.

EJ: You'll call me back? When? Good. [Quietly] Hey. [Sighs] How was school today?

Johnny: Who cares? I'm tired of this. Mommy needs to come home now. 6 children, 44 years...

Chad: Where do you think you're going?

Abigail: I got a text from my mom, and she didn't say it, but I kinda think she needs me right now.

Chad: Um, yeah, yeah, um, I'm sorry.

Abigail: No, no. I'm sorry. Wish that I could do this all day and all week.

Chad: Well, we'll do that. Real soon.

Abigail: Good.

Chad: Soon.

Abigail: [Chuckles]

Chad: Come on. Let's go.

Gabi: You mean Cameron? That wasn't about anything. What's going on?

Nick: Nothing.

Gabi: Well, you look so serious.

Nick: No, I'm just--I'm--I was worried about you, you know. About how will and Sonny are taking it, about the stuff between us.

Gabi: Well, he doesn't know we slept together, thank God. At wouldn't help anything.

Nick: I know.

Gabi: Look, I gotta--I gotta go. I gotta get to the hospital before Rafe starts his physical therapy session.

Nick: Okay. Sure. I'll see you later.

Will: Dad.

Lucas: Yeah. Hey.

Will: Hey.

Sonny: It's like father's day around here today.

Will: Yeah, isn't it? His dad was over here just now.

Lucas: Was he?

Will: Yeah.

Lucas: Well, I guess when you have a baby, you know, people tend to ignore you when they stop by, so...

Sonny: Yeah, we got--we got that.

Will: She's asleep, though.

Lucas: Is she?

Will: Mm-hmm.

Lucas: Well, I'll just take a little peek. This is for you.

Will: What?

Lucas: Yeah, just hold it for a second.

Will: Okay.

Sonny: Well, I need to go stop by the club. I'll see you later.

Will: Okay.

Lucas: Oh, man, she's so beautiful. She's got my lip.

Will: Where did you find this?

Lucas: I didn't. Your mom did.

Sami: Have you heard from EJ?

Justin: No. He's not answering calls or texts.

Sami: And he wouldn't just leave me here.

Justin: You wouldn't think so

Sami: He must be working on something.

Justin: Uh-oh.

Sami: No. Not like that. Not like before. I'm sure he wouldn't risk that again.

Justin: Then what?

All rise. The court is now in session. The honorable judge Sims presiding.

Judge Sims: We're back on record in the state versus Brady. [Bangs gavel] Ms. Trask.

Melinda: The state calls detective hope Brady.

EJ: I want your mommy home immediately.

Johnny: Sydney cried again last night.

EJ: She did? Why didn't you call me?

Johnny: You were busy. I handled it.

EJ: Did you? What did you do?

Johnny: I tucked her in and told her you would bring mommy home soon.

EJ: [Sighs] Did she go back to sleep? Thank you for looking after the girls.

Johnny: It's my job.

EJ: Well, it's my job too. I have a plan, and very--

Johnny: Nonno!

Stefano: [Laughs] Giovanni. [Speaking Italian] [Chuckles] You look terrific. Yes.

Abigail: Hi.

Gabi: Hey, Abigail.

Abigail: Hello.

Gabi: What's going on? Something happened. I can tell.

Abigail: No, things with my brother are still pretty much a mess.

Gabi: No, no, no, something happened. Something not horrible.

Abigail: [Chuckles] Okay. That is just weird. How did you know? Is there, like, a sign above my head or something, what?

Gabi: We need to have girl time, let's go.

Abigail: That's--wow. Okay.

Gabi: Yeah, let's go have a talk.

[Cell phone rings]

Chad: Too late, doctor. "We need to talk." No, we don't. But I better get my story straight.

Lucas: You do remember snuffy, don't you?

Will: Oh, my God, I didn't know anyone still kept him.

Lucas: Yeah. Yeah, um, well, you know, given what a mess your mother and I were when you were younger, it's a miracle that we saved anything that mattered to you. But she did.

Will: Man, we have been through some... some messed up times.

Lucas: Well, your mother wanted you to have it, you know, so you could give it to Ari.

Will: Have you seen mom? In your opinion, is it as bad as it sounds?

Lucas: [Clears throat] She's scared. You know, your mom doesn't do scared, so it's a little weird for her. But there's not much you can do now, so if I were you, I would just stay home with your daughter where you belong. Don't get involved in it.

Will: [Sighs]

Melinda: And at the time you secured the crime scene, did the defendant tell you that she knew Joseph Bernardi?

Hope: No.

Melinda: She lied when asked.

Hope: Yes.

Melinda: How many years did you work with Joseph Bernardi?

Hope: Roughly ten years.

Melinda: And in all that time, did you ever have reason to suspect that Joe Bernardi was anything other than a good cop?

Hope: No.

Melinda: Thank you, detective. No further questions.

Judge Sims: Mr. Kiriakis.

Justin: Detective, did you also work with a uniform patrolman named Adam Davis?

Melinda: Objection. Relevance?

Justin: I'll connect it with the next question.

Judge Sims: Overruled. Witness may answer.

Hope: Yes, I did. I worked with Adam Davis.

Justin: And in all those years that you knew him, did you ever suspect that he was anything but a good, honest cop?

Hope: Not till the day we found out he was dirty. That's how it goes.

Justin: Thank you, detective.

Melinda: Redirect, your honor. Detective, did you not do an exhaustive search of all of Joe Bernardi's finances, accounts, and even his home on one occasion?

Hope: Yes.

Melinda: And yet you found nothing to indicate that Joe and Marge were living beyond their means?

Hope: No.

Melinda: No hidden bank accounts, other than the one with the clearly planted evidence?

Hope: Not yet.

Melinda: Do you have any other leads? Any shred of credible evidence that Joe Bernardi was on the take?

Hope: No.

Stefano: Got it? There you go. Ah. [Chuckles]

Johnny: A tarantula.

Stefano: Yes.

Johnny: Awesome!

Stefano: That's a goliath. Huh? It eats birds. Well, only small animals. You know. [Chuckles] And you know, I got your sisters something too here. Two baby dolls. Here. So you give this to them, all right?

Johnny: Can I hang this over my bed?

EJ: Of course you can. Have Harold help you.

Stefano: All right, there you go. You got it? There you go. All right. Now you have everything. Good. [Chuckles] Ah. [Sighs]

EJ: My contact called you, did he?

Stefano: Of course.

EJ: And you shut him down. Now you're here to gloat. You cut off my family's only option for being together and free.

Stefano: Fugitives are not free. They simply are not caught yet, that's all. I mean, you run away, you're gonna destroy everyone's life.

EJ: Oh, I think you did a pretty good job of that yourself, don't you? I mean, it was your wounded vanity and your twisted need to feel like a man again that set this whole thing in motion.

Stefano: Let's not go over that again.

EJ: Oh, I'm sorry. Is this--is this boring to you? Because it has consumed me. It's consumed my entire family. You're the reason that my children cry for their mother every night. Does that make you happy to know that Johnny and Sydney suffer because of you?

Stefano: Of course not.

EJ: Then stop it. You have that power. Bernardi was your man. You know where he buried his skeletons. Look, there's something. Something you could release that wouldn't implicate you but which would prove Bernardi was dirty.

Stefano: Mm. Because no one would now believe it, hmm? Thanks to what you have done.

EJ: There is nothing I will not do to bring Samantha home.

Stefano: Mm. You know, all these years, I've heard you moaning about women that you love. But, um... this time I believe it's true. You truly love your Samantha, huh?

EJ: I won't lose her. The children will not lose their mother. You can free her. So what do you want, hmm? What will it take?

Maxine: Did Gabi Hernandez find you?

Cameron: No, why?

Maxine: I think she has some questions about her brother's physical therapy. Try the waiting room.

Cameron: Okay.

Gabi: All right, look, don't keep me hanging, okay, because my whole life is diapers and spit-up, but I live vicariously.

Abigail: I just think it's really creepy that you can tell.

Gabi: It's the grin. So come on.

Abigail: Okay, well, Chad and I...

Gabi: You and Chad.

Abigail: We...

Gabi: You did it?

Abigail: Yeah. We did. [Laughs]

Dr. Landrum: Usually MRIs aren't this conclusive, but yours was. The shadow on the ct was artifact. It's not uncommon. You're in perfect health, Mr. DiMera.

Chad: [Sighs] Okay. Telling Cameron I had a brain tumor got him right out of the picture. Let's find the treatment that'll keep him there.

Sonny: Hey.

Will: Hey.

Sonny: [Sighs] How was your dad?

Will: About the same as your dad.

Sonny: Mm. Damn it.

Will: Yeah.

Sonny: New toy?

Will: No. Old new toy.

[Both laugh]

Sonny: Wow.

Will: Yeah, I know. My mom kept it for me. The same woman who forgets her keys twice a week.

Sonny: Ari looks just like you did.

Will: Really?

Sonny: Mm-hmm.

Will: I don't know, I thought she looked a little more like mom.

Sami: I really wish EJ were here right now.

Justin: Well, it might not help with this jury.

Sami: I don't care. At this point, I just really need to see a friendly face.

Melinda: The state calls roman Brady to the stand.

Sami: [Sighs]

Stefano: [Chuckles] You look happy there.

EJ: What exactly is it that you want, father?

Stefano: Of course, it's hanging in the wrong place.

EJ: Just tell me.

Stefano: What do I want? What does any father want for their son? I want you to be happy.

EJ: Well, there is only one thing that's going to do that. I want Samantha home with me.

Stefano: Yes, well, I hear her case is, uh, junk.

EJ: Without any evidence that proves Bernardi was crooked, it's very difficult to fight their version of events.

Stefano: But see, if she had something solid, I mean, something real that could, you know, support her story...or

EJ: The razor? The blade... Bernardi brought with him to slice up Rafe. The blade that disappeared at the crime scene. You didn't destroy it. You have it. You've had it all along. Turn it in. You can do that, father. Turn it in anonymously. Somebody found it at the hospital. You can do that with no harm to yourself. Father, for Johnny, for Sydney, you have the power to bring their mother home, you have to.

Stefano: I don't have to do anything.
