Daniel: Then you were lugging some trash bag that you brought in from work. So what important information did you destroy?
Nicole: It's information, like I said, that probably would have--not probably. It was important. And it could've helped someone. And maybe it still can. This is huge. And frankly there's so much to tell you, I don't even know where to begin.
Daniel: Okay, okay, well, how about you start at the beginning?
Nicole: Yeah. It's time. Actually, it's past time, Daniel. I need to tell you everything.
Daniel: [Sighs] Damn it, Nicole. Why?
[Cell phone ringing]
Nicole: Come on, Daniel, pick up. I've got good news. Hmm. Everything's perfect. I am gonna be so happy.
Marlena: Oh, hello, Nicole.
Nicole: Hi, Marlena.
Marlena: What's going on?
[Knock at door]
Daniel: Jenn, hey. Hey.
JJ: You know, I never knew Nick very well, even though he was our cousin. Frankly, I just--I didn't like him much. I know you did, though. You guys were pretty close.
Abigail: We weren't close, JJ! We weren't close-- not anymore, okay? Now he's dead.
Sami: EJ, I am calm, okay? I'm totally calm. But, you know, Johnny and Sydney are still upstairs. They're gonna get some really bad news, and they need their daddy here to hear it. Harold told me that you got up early and went to some meeting? Yes, no, I appreciate that business is business. But have you forgotten that we murdered Nick Fallon last night? Yes. What's done is done. But I still feel guilty about it. I can't help it. I need you to come home, EJ.
Anne: Oh, well, as I live and breathe, our lady of lateness has graced us with her presence.
Theresa: Yeah, Brady isn't here, is he?
Anne: No, he's probably hard at work dealing with the latest Horton family drama. I swear it's like they have their own cable network around here. I can't believe the hospital isn't already draped in black.
Theresa: Wait, what are you talking about?
Anne: Nick Fallon.
Daniel: Nick's dead? I was in surgery. I got out early, I came home, then I had some issues to deal with, so I haven't had a second to see the news this morning. What happened? Was he in an accident?
Jennifer: No. He was murdered.
Sami: Eric, what did you hear?
Eric: What have you done, Sami?
Sami: I didn't mean to. I just-- just--I'm sorry. Oh, God, I feel terrible. I feel so guilty. I just--I'm gonna hate myself for this forever.
Eric: Okay, calm down.
Nicole: Have you talked to Eric today?
Marlena: No, you know what? I slept in this morning. And I just came in for some coffee, but good that I ran into you because I actually have a question for you.
Marlena: It's about what happened that night on smith island.
Jennifer: And then they rushed him into surgery, but it was too late.
Daniel: I'm sorry, Jenn. Do you they know who did it? Do they have anybody in custody?
Jennifer: No, I spoke to hope this morning. And she's gonna stay involved, even though Nick was our cousin. But, I mean, there's just-- there's no clues, there's no lead. I mean, for all we know, it could be someone from prison, you know, like that other man that wanted revenge.
Daniel: Right, right. Well, how are the kids holding up?
Jennifer: JJ didn't know Nick very well, but Abigail, it's like a nightmare for her. She was there in the square when Nick collapsed with a ton of other people. You know what? I need to get back, actually, in case she needs to talk about this some more.
Daniel: You know, I can go with you. I mean, maybe--I don't know. Maybe it'll just complicate things. If you need me, you need anything, you call me.
Jennifer: I will, yeah.
Daniel: Okay. I'm sorry this happened. I mean... is there anything I can--
Jennifer: No, I know that Nick wasn't your favorite person.
Daniel: No, I barely knew the guy, but after what he did to Melanie...
Daniel: I don't really care for him that much, so...
Jennifer: And clearly you're not alone.
Abigail: JJ, listen, I'm sorry for snapping at you like that. It was stupid.
JJ: No, no, no, it's no problem. You didn't get much sleep last night.
Abigail: No, I didn't.
JJ: You know, I was kind of surprised, you know, how you were so angry. You were crying last night when you told us what happened. I always thought that you and Nick were, you know, really close.
Abigail: We weren't, okay? We weren't, not for a while. He--Nick turned out to be-- he just--he wasn't who I thought he was.
JJ: What happened?
Nick: Perfect little Abigail Deveraux is nothing but EJ DiMera's whore.
Abigail: Nick said that he needed a lawyer. I thought that maybe he had some problems. So I recommended Aiden Jennings. Turns out Nick actually wanted a lawyer to start a custody battle. He wanted to get Gabi to take Ari away from will and Sonny.
JJ: No way.
Abigail: He used me.
JJ: Yeah. That--that was low. So you pretty much hated him, and all of a sudden, you're standing there watching him die.
Abigail: I didn't want that.
JJ: Yeah, I know. But it happened. And you and I both know that you can feel really guilty when someone dies... and it's too late. All right, there's something else, isn't there? All right, abs, I know you. There's something that you're not telling me. And it's not about Nick.
Theresa: You know, there is a silver lining to this, though.
Theresa: People are gonna stop talking about Liam Frazer 24-7.
Anne: Yeah, you know, hope Brady was here yesterday morning. She was wrapping up that case.
Theresa: What did she want?
Anne: She just--you know, to see if maybe Daniel's apartment key had been duplicated.
Theresa: Well, what did you-- I mean, you didn't tell her that I--
Anne: Come on, relax, sweetheart. I had your back. And besides, nobody saw you give him the key, right? So you're home free.
Theresa: Yeah, well, I hope so. I'd really like to move on with my life. It's time to get Brady to focus. You know?
Brady: You okay?
Maggie: [Sighs] I just came from a meeting. I didn't speak. I just kept thinking about Nick. You know, he was doing great... turning into a fine young man. And then when he got into pills... he was never the same. Even though he straightened himself out, his mind was changed.
Brady: Four years in prison didn't help.
Maggie: No. Even when he got out, though, he really couldn't cope. He made a good show of it, though.
Brady: We all need help sometimes. It's too bad he didn't reach out.
Maggie: I'm gonna go to another meeting in a little while. It's what I do whenever there's a crisis. I try to focus on what's important.
Brady: I know. It's good.
Maggie: Brady, don't take this the wrong way. Would you maybe like to go with me?
Sami: Eric, I didn't mean for this to happen. I swear, I didn't. I didn't want any of this to happen.
Eric: When I walked in, you said, "what's done is done." What--what were you talking about?
Sami: Did you hear about Nick Fallon? He was shot last night.
Eric: Is he okay?
Sami: No. No, actually. He was rushed to university hospital, and... and he died there. And the whole Horton clan-- they're in major crisis mode. I mean, it--
Eric: Oh, my God. Okay--
Eric: If you had nothing to do with this, then why are you feeling guilty?
Brady: I'm glad you have A.A. It's important for you, especially right now, but it's not for me. It's not for everyone.
[Cell phone rings]
Maggie: If Nick had gone to meetings, he might--it might have changed his life. He would have been a different person.
Brady: Maybe, maybe, maybe. We all make choices, though. I do have to--I have to deal with this right now, but is there anything I can do for you? Do you need a ride somewhere?
Maggie: No, I'm fine. Be safe.
Brady: I will, I will. Bye.
[Door opens and closes]
Anne: You had a good thing going with that booze hound.
Theresa: I did.
Anne: What do you think he's worth?
Theresa: Well, I'll let you know when I get him back.
Theresa: You know, it really was unfair the way he put me on hold like that, but now that the whole Liam thing's over, it's time for Brady to come back to bed.
JJ: Abigail... you know what a screw-up I've been. And, man, I did some things that I am so ashamed of that I don't even want to think about, and not once did you judge me. I won't judge you either. I'm not saying that you did anything wrong. But... you're really messed up right now. Maybe if you talk to me...?
JJ: Uh, hold on.
JJ: Oh, hey.
Paige: I heard what happened to your cousin. You must be really upset. I saw the cars out front and thought I'd stop and say how sorry I was.
Abigail: That's sweet of you, Paige. Thanks. Yeah, we're upset, but... you know what? It's over, and there's nothing we can do about it. Sometimes you think you may want to turn back the clock, but you can't. You can't make it right. A fact is a fact. Somebody murdered Nick.
Sami: You just don't understand. I mean, what happened to Nick was awful enough, but--but Allie saw the whole thing.
Sami: Yeah. It was terrible. She was there at the Horton town square. We were all there, and she starts screaming, and she pointed, and we look around, and Nick came staggering in, and he was covered in blood. He collapses in Julie's arms, and it all happened right in front of Allie.
Eric: Dear lord.
Sami: I know. It's horrible. And, I mean, I can only imagine it's gonna take years for her to get over something like this, if she ever does.
Eric: Children can be resilient.
Sami: Nice try.
Eric: Seriously, it happens.
Eric: At least we can try.
Sami: Oh, no.
Eric: We can hope, all right? But I'm still confused. Why do you feel guilty?
[Cell phone rings]
Sami: I'm sorry. I have to take this. It's Lucas. It's Lucas, and he's freaking out about Allie too.
Sami: Hey, Lucas, it's me. Um, I--no. Yeah, no, no, I'm good, okay? I'm good. You just tell me what's happening with Allie. Okay.
Daniel: I know this is tough on you and the kids, but you call me if you need anything.
Jennifer: I will. I just thank God that you're okay. I really couldn't even sleep last night thinking about you on that island and you just lying there, bleeding--
Daniel: Okay, you just move that image to the recycle bin. I am fine.
Jennifer: I know. I just--I keep thinking that we are so lucky.
Daniel: 'Cause we are. Every day we're together, it's like winning a prize.
Jennifer: I love you.
Daniel: I love you.
Jennifer: Okay. Oh, I'm so sorry. What were you saying? That you need to deal with some issues?
Daniel: I just have to work some things out, get to the bottom of it, you know, and I will.
Marlena: You know what I don't get, is, um, why did you go to smith island in the first place?
Nicole: Okay, what's going on? Why would you ask me that?
Marlena: Well, just because I'm confused, I guess. How did you know that Jennifer--
Nicole: Okay, you know what? You always do this. Something happens and you come on all sugary and sweet, and then you start with the questions. You can't accept what I have to say at face value. No, so I'm lying, right? Go ahead and say it. What are you accusing me of?
Marlena: Nicole, I'm not accusing you of anything. I was only asking why you went to smith island--
Nicole: Here's my goal, Marlena--to build a good and happy life. Sound good?
Marlena: Sounds admirable.
Nicole: Even when something bad happens, like when someone tries to kill me or my friends, the moment it's over, I just want to get back to trying to be happy.
Marlena: And I appreciate that.
Nicole: And then someone comes along who's always suspicious, who's always trying to find the dark side of what I'm doing... just like she was with Kristen DiMera. And now that Kristen has disappeared, she's kind of at loose ends. Now she has to transfer all that energy into trying to find out what evil I'm up to. See where I'm starting to have a problem with this?
Marlena: Indeed, I do. And the fact that an innocent question elicits such an amazing response is very telling. Nicole, your defensive network is way out of line.
[Cell phone rings]
Nicole: Excuse me.
Nicole: Hold that warm and fuzzy thought, doc. Oh! Hello, handsome.
Eric: Hey. Uh, listen, I know I'm supposed to meet you right now, um, but I'm with my sister. Something's come up, and I need to find my mom right away. Sami is very upset.
Nicole: Well, you're in luck. Mama bear is right here. Eric.
Marlena: Hi, honey. Is everything okay?
Eric: Mom, Sami needs you, right away.
Daniel: I wish I'd known last night. I would have gone back to the hospital.
Maggie: There wasn't anything you could have done. I would have called you, except I knew that... he wasn't your family.
Daniel: But you are. Mom, how are you?
Maggie: Oh, I'm--I'm-- you know, no, I'm keeping busy, trying to help people... trying not to think... about all the help that I didn't give Nick.
Daniel: Come on. You did all kinds of things for Nick. When he got out of prison, where did he live? Hmm?
Maggie: Free room and board in a mansion run by servants isn't the same as being close... making sure he had the emotional support that he needed. Now he's gone, and it's too late. And I'm gonna have to live with that for the rest of my life.
Marlena: I wish I'd known about this last night. I might have been able to help.
Sami: Well, mom, I did text you, okay? I did.
Marlena: I had no idea. This... this phone has been losing things. Maybe it's time for a new phone.
Sami: [Laughs] You think?
Marlena: Yeah. Okay. How is Allie?
Sami: Mom, it's just, you know, tough right now, and I'm just worried, you know? [Sighs]
Marlena: She's young. She'll get through this. I'm gonna give you the name of a child psychiatrist who is very experienced.
Sami: It's just the hardest thing in the world to see your kid go through something like that, something so traumatic. It's the worst thing in the world.
Marlena: I know.
Jennifer: Hey. I gather you didn't get much sleep.
Abigail: Uh, yeah. I'm pretty wiped out.
Jennifer: And I know that we talked about it, you know, the shock of what happened... and I know that you were really upset, so I thought it would just be best to give you some time alone. But how are you feeling right now?
Abigail: I have to say this, mom, and... you're the only person that I can say it to.
Abigail: Nick's gone, and he was family, and it's sad when someone dies so young... but I decided that I'm not gonna cry about it anymore, because the truth is Nick turned out to be someone that I didn't even recognize. He was a total bastard.
Nicole: Oh, Eric, wait. Don't come any further. Something horrible must have happened here. I mean, look at all this police tape.
Eric: Didn't you see the news this morning?
Nicole: No, why? What happened?
Eric: Nick Fallon--he was shot to death last night.
Sami: The whole thing was horrible, you know? We were just frozen, staring at Nick, then... well, Allie--she had my focus from then on. And Lucas and I got her out of the square as soon as we could.
Marlena: Mm-hmm, good. This is Dr. Garwood's number. She is very experienced.
Sami: Thank you.
Marlena: Don't take this the wrong way, but I'm worried about you. I think you could talk to somebody professional yourself.
Marlena: Because you should talk to somebody with whom you could be completely honest.
Marlena: What does that mean, Mom? You think I'm not being honest with you?
Nicole: You're right. It's all over the internet. "Nick Fallon...bullets flying from a 9mm...died in surgery..." oh, my God. "Police are still investigating." Oh, boy. I'm glad I kept my mouth shut about us. When I ran into Marlena, she made me so nervous, I pulled off my ring and shoved it in my pocket.
Eric: Yeah, we should probably put off telling anyone else in the family for now... although I hate delaying it because I know how happy you are.
Nicole: It's okay. Jenn knows. She's thrilled. There's only one more person that absolutely needs to know.
Maggie: How's Parker, that grandson of mine? Is he coming home?
Daniel: Yeah, yeah, in a few days, but I talk to him every morning, and he is just out of his mind happy, so... what? What? What's wrong?
Maggie: Nothing. It just hit me. You love your son so much. I could have been making funeral arrangements for you if things had gone differently on smith island. Daniel, if I lost you... oh!
Daniel: Okay, mom, it's over. It's over. I'm right here. I am right here, and I'm not going anywhere. Come on.
Jennifer: Nick convinced Gabi to fight for full custody? Seriously?
Abigail: I don't know all the details. I think will was gonna have Ari, like, every other weekend or something.
Jennifer: That's terrible.
Abigail: Yeah, he used me. I told him to call Aiden Jennings because he was so great with JJ, but I had no idea that Nick was back to being this complete manipulator.
Jennifer: And now you're angry.
Abigail: Yeah, I'm angry.
Jennifer: And now he's gone.
Abigail: We used to be really close. Then he got obsessed with Melanie, and then she went to Europe. And then he did the exact same thing with Gabi. I know that I sound like a total bitch when I say this, but, God, I wish he just never would have come back from new York.
JJ: My mom really loved that you came by to say you were sorry.
Paige: [Chuckles] I mainly just came to see if you were okay. But if you didn't even like him all that much...
JJ: Um... yeah. I mean, Nick was weird, not that I'm one to talk. But he got himself into some pretty serious trouble plenty of times. I mean, everyone thinks that the Hortons are this--this great family. There's a plaque of my great-grandma and grandpa in the square over there, and... my mom--she's terrific. And Abigail's great too. Just... [Sighs] Me not so much, you know?
Theresa: Hey. You came. I mean, when I texted you, I-I just--I wasn't sure 'cause you didn't text me back.
Brady: Yeah, I'm sorry. I got busy. Did you hear that Nick Fallon was murdered?
Theresa: Yeah. Yeah, I heard. It's really terrible. I mean, he was so young. Were you guys close?
Brady: No, no, but Maggie was like his second mother.
Theresa: Oh, God. It's sad. It's so awful. I mean, having that happen to someone in your family, that's got to be--got to be kind of a bummer.
Brady: Yeah, yeah, big bummer. But listen, I know you didn't-- you didn't call me to meet me here to talk about the Hortons, now, did you?
Theresa: No. Um, I wanted to talk about us.
Theresa: [Sighs] Last night you kind of indicated... look, I mean, I get why you backed off and the whole no-booze thing. I mean, you really went for it to help Daniel and Jennifer. And they're okay now, you know? They're--they're good. And Daniel's free and clear.
Brady: Yeah, yeah, he is, and they're both good.
Theresa: Yeah, which is great. But, I mean, Brady, this whole time, I was, like, suspect number one out to wreck Jennifer's life, but it turns out that the whole time, it was Liam Frazer, so... I just want to know, Brady. I mean, are we good? You and me?
Marlena: Sami, I didn't say that you were lying to me. But this kind of thing can haunt somebody for weeks, for months, for years. And you and Nick were not on the best of terms.
Sami: Yeah, no kidding.
Marlena: So seeing him die right in front of you... must have caused some very mixed feelings.
Sami: Yeah, mixed feelings... pretty much sums it up.
Marlena: You know, the only way to deal with this fallout... is to sit down and open up to somebody that you can trust. If you don't want to talk to a stranger... you can talk to me... not as a therapist... as your mom.
Theresa: I know I have to accept some responsibility. I mean, I should have tried harder to tell Daniel what a wacko Liam was.
Brady: Mm-hmm. That would have helped.
Theresa: Yeah, but I wasn't the villain here, Brady, okay? Liam was. So I just-- [Sighs] What about the "you and me" thing? You think maybe we could start up again? Maybe over a small drink? Hey, um, can we get two bloody marys over here, please? [Chuckles]
Maggie: Julie kept saying that Nick was pointing to his killer when he died.
Daniel: Who was he pointing at?
Maggie: Everyone in the square, apparently. [Sighs] Julie likes drama.
Maggie: Although Nick had enemies... probably more than we even know about.
Maggie: He was trying so hard lately.
Daniel: Yeah, to do the right thing?
Maggie: Yeah. Trying and doing are two different things. A lot of people try... but a lot more keep on making those bad choices.
Daniel: And keep lying to themselves and their friends.
Maggie: Yeah. Well, I'm gonna call Melanie.
Daniel: Hey, you know what? I think that is a really, really good idea. I am gonna go home, all right? And, hey, don't forget. Any help you need, anything...
Maggie: I know. I love you. I don't say that enough. I love you, son.
Daniel: Okay. I love you, mom. Okay, all right. Don't get me going again.
Maggie: Okay! Okay.
Daniel: I'm here, okay?
Maggie: Yeah, yeah.
Daniel: Okay, Nicole. No time like the present.
Nicole: Daniel's been a friend a long time. Despite everything, he's been rooting for us since we got together-- well, this time.
Eric: Yeah, I know.
Nicole: And I just--I can't wait to flash my ring in front of him and watch his eyes light up.
Eric: I bet. Listen, I'd love to go with you, but I got to swing by Maggie's. She just needs to know that people care.
[Cell phone rings]
Nicole: Okay. Ooh! Oh, it's Daniel. He wants me to come over to the apartment now. No time like the present.
Eric: Well, enjoy every minute of it. I love you very much.
Nicole: I love you. Always will, always. Eric, we're gonna be so happy.
Sami: Mom, listen... if I ever decide that I want to talk to someone, a therapist or a mom, you will be the first person to know, okay? But I think that right now, I just want some tea, so I'm gonna ask them to make me some. Uh, would you like some chamomile?
Marlena: Please, yes, chamomile's great. And while you're gone, I'll see if I can't work on this phone.
Sami: [Chuckles] Oh! Fingers crossed for you.
Marlena: Okay. Unread texts. [Gasps] Oh, my gosh. Two, three... she did text me. Don't know why I didn't get these picked up. Okay. "Unheard messages." [Inhales sharply] Nick. I had this chronic, deep ache all over.
Brady: Theresa, since we-- since we pulled--correction. Since I pulled back, I've been seeing things a little differently.
Brady: Meaning I-- look, I try not to judge people. God knows I can't with my track record, but I'm in a-- I'm in a different place right now.
Brady: Don't--look, hey, hey. Listen, I'm not saying that I don't want to see you again. I'm not saying that. I'm just saying that... being away has changed things for me a little bit. I just want to take it slow, you know, see what happens. That's all. Is that okay?
Theresa: Yeah, that's fine. I'm good with that. But just so you know, big guy...
Theresa: We're not done here.
Paige: No family's perfect. Man, wait until you meet my mom.
JJ: You--you want me to meet your family?
Paige: Why not?
JJ: No, that's cool. Um, it's--it's usually like a big deal to bring someone to meet your family, you know. I mean, I was totally embarrassed when you met mine.
Paige: Seriously? Your mom is so nice.
JJ: Yeah, but she gets a little pushy.
Paige: I didn't see that. And she's so beautiful.
JJ: You think my mom's good-looking?
Paige: Duh! [Laughs]
JJ: Well, I-I'm looking at someone that's really beautiful right now... and just hot. Not that that's all you are. It's--I'm sure you're just as beautiful on the inside.
Paige: Hey, I love the compliment. Quit while you're ahead.
Abigail: Oh, my God. I'm a terrible person. Nick hasn't even been dead for one day.
Jennifer: Honey, no, you're not. You're not a terrible person. I understand you're angry, but that doesn't mean you think it's good that he's dead or that he somehow deserved it.
Abigail: No. No, I don't--I don't think that. I wonder what's gonna happen now.
Jennifer: Well, what would normally happen-- the police are gonna find out who did this to Nick, and they are gonna bring him to justice.
Nick: [On voice mail] Julie suggested that I--that I call you. Um, she thought... you might be able to recommend somebody for me to see... you know, professionally. You know, I just--I don't-- I don't think-- I don't think I can go on like this.
Eric: Just know that I'll be praying for you.
Maggie: I appreciate you stopping by. I know you have a job and work to do. The world doesn't stop because someone is grieving.
Eric: We're all here to help, all of us. Just call, ask.
Maggie: [Chuckles] Yes. You know, I've been thinking. I'm gonna take every minute of every day to focus on people who are happy... and good things. Just knowing that Daniel and Nicole and Jennifer made it home safe and sound, that's--that's a great blessing.
Eric: It is.
Maggie: And you and Nicole-- are things going great for you now?
Eric: Yeah. I'm very happy. After I lost my vocation, I didn't think it was possible for me to be this happy again. Nicole--she changed all that.
[Knock at door]
Nicole: Hi! I'm so glad you texted me. I have something I need to tell you. I'm so excited, and it can't wait.
Daniel: You're right. It can't wait.
