Nicole: Hi. I'm so glad you texted me. There's something I need to tell you. I'm so excited. It can't wait.
Daniel: You're right. It can't wait.
Nicole: Oh. You look like you just heard the news about Nick Fallon. How's Maggie doing? I know she was close to him. I didn't really know him that well, but still, it's sad. And... it made me realize something.
Daniel: Did it?
Nicole: Yeah. Made me realize that there's something I need to confess. Right here, right now. To you.
Eric: I just wanted to say in person how sorry I am about Nick.
Jennifer: Thank you. That's really sweet. It is such a shock. It's crazy. I was just thinking about him, and I can't even imagine who would do something so horrible like that. Come on in.
[Knock on door]
Aiden: Hey, you got a minute?
Hope: Yeah, sure. Come in.
Aiden: Um... I'm assuming you're gonna cancel the meeting about the school gala, yeah?
Aiden: The school gala.
Hope: Oh, yeah, right.
Hope: Can you take care of that?
Aiden: Of course. Of course I will.
Aiden: Hey, look, I'm sorry to hear about your cousin. If there's anything I can do, just please say the word.
Hope: Okay. How about you explain why your card is in Nick Fallon's wallet?
Nick: Julie suggested that I--that I call you. 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.
Marlena: Oh, my gosh, honey.
Sami: Mom, I--
Marlena: Are you okay?
Sami: I just made such a mess. God, I'm such a klutz.
Marlena: No, no, you're not. You are not. You heard Nick's voice, and it scared you to pieces. Why was that?
Rafe: It's weird, huh?
EJ: Excuse me?
Rafe: The square--it's totally normal. It's like nothing happened last night.
EJ: What happened last night was a tragedy. A tragedy compounded by the fact that Allie happened to witness it.
Rafe: Yes. Yeah, that's really rough. Sweet kid too. Hope she's okay.
EJ: Indeed. Have a nice day.
Rafe: Yeah. But it is--it's strange how it all happened, though, right?
Rafe: Well, Nick Fallon--he was a problem to a lot of people in this town, but now he's dead. So all those problems-- poof. It's convenient, huh?
Will: Gabi's still sleeping.
Sonny: All right, I got it. No noise.
Will: You're gonna take that straight back to Victor's, right?
Sonny: Yes, that's the plan. I'll be in and out in just a few minutes.
Sonny: And then when I'm done, I'll come back here and let you know I got it taken care of.
Gabi: What's going on?
Will: [Sighs] Hey, I thought you'd still be sleeping. You were up awfully late last night.
Gabi: It's useless. Every time I close my eyes, I see Nick. Before he died, the way he was looking at all of us...
[Cell phone rings]
Will: Excuse me.
Sonny: I'm gonna go run a few errands, and then I'll be back to take care of Ari. Do you want me to get you anything?
Gabi: I don't think so.
Will: Well, wouldn't you know it?
Will: It's the family court. Calling to remind us about the custody hearing for tomorrow at 9:00 A.M.
Aiden: Well, Nick contacted me about representing a client.
Aiden: Gabriella Hernandez.
Hope: The custody battle over Arianna.
Aiden: Yeah, but I can't talk too much about it--
Hope: No, of course, I understand. Attorney-client privilege.
Hope: This points us to one more reason.
Aiden: For what?
Sami: God. Look, it's no secret that Nick and I were not friends, you know, but... [Sighs] Hearing his voice on your message and after seeing him all bloody last night, it just, you know, freaked me out.
Marlena: That's understandable. And there's nothing wrong with saying that you didn't like the man. But you didn't want him dead. I mean, nobody wants somebody dead.
Sami: Mom, actually, that's not true either. After everything that he did to will, I did want him gone.
EJ: As I recall-- what was it? A little over a year ago, you were rather viciously assaulted, not far from here if I remember correctly, by one of Nicholas Fallon's enemies from prison--unless you've forgotten about that.
Rafe: No, no, no. Definitely not. But that's guy's dead now too.
EJ: Yes. And, of course, we're all very fortunate. But, I think, when one considers Nicholas Fallon's particular brand of charm, an intelligent man, such as yourself, can assume that there are more homicidal maniacs waiting in the wing.
Rafe: Right, right. So that's your theory, that Nick was dropped by a homicidal maniac?
EJ: Well, now, are you asking me that question as Rafael Hernandez or as detective Hernandez?
Rafe: [Laughs] I'm just--I'm just making conversation here, EJ. That's all. Now listen, you and I, we both had our fair share of problems with Nick, it's just I don't see you shedding any tears.
EJ: Well, I could say the same for you.
EJ: I will say this, though.
EJ: You are a much better shot than I am.
Eric: I understand Abigail was there when it happened.
Jennifer: Yeah, she was there. She is still so upset.
Eric: Well, if there is anything, anything at all that I can do, just ask.
Jennifer: That's sweet. Thank you. You know what you can do? You can help me take my mind off it and talk to me about Nicole, because I know that's not hard for you.
Jennifer: What are your plans?
Nicole: I'm an idiot for going out to smith island and grabbing that gun and trying to shoot Liam. I could've killed you.
Nicole: And I know you say it only grazed you, but 2 inches--2 inches over and you could be dead, and all because I acted without thinking because I thought I couldn't make a mistake. But I'm here to tell you something. "Mistake" is my middle name, and I will never pull a stunt like that again.
Daniel: Nicole, I know you would never mean to hurt me.
Nicole: Absolutely not.
Daniel: But sometimes you... you make choices, when you look back, they're really not so good.
Nicole: I was just trying to save your life.
Daniel: You know, I was thinking about that night, about how you reacted to Liam. And it seems to me that you really were determined to stop him. And no matter what, you wanted him dead, like it was something personal. So what--what was that?
Nicole: Well, of course it was personal. I mean, he--he tried to kill Jenn. He tried to kill me. He didn't exactly treat you with kid gloves. I mean, the son of a bitch had to go.
Daniel: I know that he wanted to kill you, but you had the gun. You had all the power. But you never threatened him.
Nicole: You know me. Shoot first and then ask questions.
Daniel: [Scoffs] And when he fell, when he was dying, he was trying to talk, and you clearly didn't want him to say anything.
Nicole: Well, who wants to hear from a total liar anyway? Look, I mean-- in fact, who--who wants to talk about that guy? I don't. Look, I came here because I wanted to apologize to you again and because I have a secret that I need you to know. Ready?
Daniel: Yes. Absolutely. You know that you can share anything with me.
Nicole: I'm getting married.
Gabi: That custody hearing's not gonna happen. I'm calling Mr. Jennings right now and having him cancel it.
Sonny: Wow. Okay.
Gabi: We all love Arianna. I mean, family court's the last place we should be. There's a much better way to handle any problems that we have. Where'd I put my phone? I'll be back.
Sonny: Looks like everything's gonna work out.
Will: I hope so.
Sonny: I'm gonna go.
I need you to come with me.
Marlena: Sami, what you're feeling is a classic form of guilt. You're connecting what happened with what you wanted, but there's no way that was your fault. Nick's murder had nothing to do with you.
Sami: I will try to keep that in mind.
Marlena: Yes, please.
Sami: Do you know what time he left that message for you?
Marlena: Uh...well, no.
Sami: It says on your phone, I think. 8:46.
Marlena: 8:46, yeah.
Sami: Mom, that's when he was killed. Can you play the message again?
Marlena: Are you sure you wanna hear it?
Nick: I don't think I can go on like this. And I just gotta shut it all down. You know, it's time. I know that I'm hurting people. I know that, and I'm hurting me. I'm hurting myself. And--and I don't wanna do that. I can change it. [Sighs] It feels really good just actually saying that, you know? Like--like-- [Sniffles] Like maybe there's hope.
Sami: Oh, my God!
Sami: He shot Nick when he was leaving a message saying that he wanted to change! Oh, my God.
Eric: Daniel and Nicole have been so close. I'm almost surprised she didn't run right over to his apartment as soon as I put that ring on her finger.
Jennifer: I know. They are a pair. [Laughs] I think it's really good that you understand that.
Eric: Well, you too.
Jennifer: Yeah. But I will admit I was pretty uncomfortable at first with how well they got along.
Eric: When she lied and said that she and Daniel were a couple.
Jennifer: Yeah, I mean, I was shocked that Daniel would even go along with that.
Eric: Well, that was a ruse, so she could investigate Dr. Chyka.
Jennifer: Yeah. The greater good theory.
Eric: Yeah, I guess so. You know what's so amazing is that Nicole--she did all that just to clear my name. She did that out of love. Not even realizing she was risking her own life, but she was risking everything. Even though she knew that...
Jennifer: If she got the proof she needed, she might lose you to the church, right?
Nicole: Eric asked me to marry him last night. Daniel, it was like fireworks going off in my stomach. But the thing is, we're gonna keep it on the down low for a little while, you know, family reasons. And now that Nick has been shot, that's probably gonna add on a few days. But there was no way we weren't gonna tell you and Jenn. You've been through everything with us. You absolutely needed to know. Daniel, you have been so important to me. I wouldn't even be with Eric right now if it weren't for you, and I think I'm the happiest I've ever been. Do you think that I'M... Daniel, is something wrong?
Daniel: Something is very wrong.
Gabi: Right, I'm sorry that it's such short notice. Thank you. Thank you, Mr. Jennings. Okay, the hearing's cancelled.
Will: Thank you.
Gabi: It was the right thing to do. I should have never even...
Will: Gabi. Stop, you don't have to say anything. Everyone knows that Nick was pressuring you.
Gabi: And now he can't.
Will: I know. Although I know this must be really, really hard for you. I know you cared about the guy, and I know you wanted to believe that he changed.
Gabi: Well, if he did, we'll never know now, will we? I'm gonna go check on Arianna. Excuse me.
[Knock on door]
Will: Hey. Gabi is checking on Ari.
Rafe: I'm not here to see Gabi. I'm here to see you about Nick.
EJ: [Sighs] Talk about unsettling. Not only is Nick dead, now we have a recording of the shots being fired.
Sami: He was leaving a message for my mother, saying that he wanted to change.
Marlena: I have to get this to hope right away.
EJ: Oh, absolutely. This is evidence. No, no, you have to get this down to the police department as quickly as possible. It pinpoints the exact time of the shooting.
Marlena: I hope this helps them find the killer. Someone has to pay for what happened to Nick.
Hope: Sonny, please come in. Have a seat. I assume you know why you're here.
Sonny: Uh, actually, no.
Hope: Relax. Put down your backpack. This might take a while.
Hope: Sonny, relax. As I said, there's no need to be nervous. I just need to ask you some questions about what happened last night. Standard procedure with all witnesses.
Sonny: I didn't witness anything, though.
Hope: You were at the Horton square last night, weren't you?
Hope: And you witnessed when Nick Fallon appeared there, bleeding?
Sonny: Yeah. But so was everybody else.
Hope: Looks like I'll be interviewing a lot of people then. But let's start with you, okay?
Hope: Sonny, is there anything you remember about what happened last night, anything at all that might help us catch Nick Fallon's killer?
EJ: Well, thank you so much for coming over. And let me tell you something. You know Samantha relies on her mother a lot more than she lets on.
Marlena: Mm-hmm. Sometimes. Bye-bye.
EJ: Good-bye. Samantha, you are going to have to be a lot more careful about what you say.
Sami: What? Why?
EJ: Because when your mother played you the message on her voice mail, you said, when you heard "him" shoot him. "He." How would you know the assailant was a man?
Sami: Oh, God. Oh, God!
EJ: It's little details like that that are gonna slip us up.
Sami: I know, all right. I'm sorry. I-I didn't realize. I just was thinking about Nick and the fact that he was leaving this message for my mother asking for help, you know.
EJ: Hey, Samantha, stop it.
Sami: I mean, it's just upsetting to think that...
EJ: Please, listen to me. There are two things you need to focus on. First of all, Nick is dead. He is gone, and he is never coming back. And secondly, that is a good thing. It's a good thing for you. It's a good thing for me. It's a good thing for Arianna. It's a good thing for Sonny. It's a good thing for William.
Sami: No, I know.
EJ: It's a good thing for everybody.
Sami: I know, I know. And that is why we did it.
EJ: Now, in the next few days and weeks, the police are going to be asking a lot of questions of a lot of people, including us. We need to be extremely careful when it comes to giving them answers.
Hope: Uh, let's talk...
Sonny: [Clears throat]
Hope: Now about the last time you saw Nick.
Sonny: [Sighs] I'm sorry?
Hope: Before he was shot. Did you see him anytime that same day?
Sonny: I did, yeah. He was at my club.
Hope: And did you talk?
Sonny: Yeah, we talked a little.
Hope: Sonny, we have witnesses that put you and Nick together, and they indicate it was pretty heated. So would you like to go back and clarify that last remark?
Sonny: What, am I a suspect now?
Hope: Everyone is a suspect. You want to be eliminated, you have to be honest, completely. Understood? Okay. Let's try it again. Why don't you tell us more about the last time you saw Nick Fallon before he was shot?
Gabi: Rafe, what are you doing here?
Rafe: Hey. Just came by to talk to will for a minute, maybe see my niece. How are you? Did you get some sleep last night?
Gabi: I'm okay. Arianna's asleep, but she could wake up soon.
Rafe: Okay. Listen, if you need to talk to someone, A...therapist or a priest--
Gabi: I'm okay. I'm good. I mean, I'm--I'm upset, but I'm--I'm handling it. Thanks for asking.
Rafe: Yeah, okay.
Gabi: [Laughs] Yeah. You always got my back.
Rafe: That's right.
Gabi: [Laughs] Will, hey, look. I have to do something. Would it be okay if you just watched Arianna for a bit?
Will: Yeah, of course. I'll be here.
Gabi: Okay, I won't be long.
Will: That's fine.
Rafe: Take care.
Rafe: Is she really okay?
Will: I think she will be. We all will be.
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah. Good, good. So what do you say we talk about what happened last night?
Will: That sounds great. I don't have anything to hide.
Rafe: Well, neither do I, and the last thing that I'm going to do is lie about what I do know.
Will: Well, I'm not going to do that either.
Rafe: All right. Let's start with an easy one then. Do you know about the custody hearing that's set for tomorrow?
Will: Yeah. Well, Gabi just called her lawyer and cancelled it just a little bit ago.
Rafe: Terrific. See, you guys can handle things on your own. I knew it. Okay, so let's get back to the custody hearing. Did you know about it yesterday?
Rafe: When did you hear?
Will: Last night.
Rafe: Not long before Nick was shot.
Will: I guess.
Rafe: And not long after I broke up a fight between you and Nick. A fight where you said if he tried to keep you away from Arianna, that you would...
Will: That I would kill him.
Aiden: Look, I don't want to intrude. I just wanted to offer my condolences. Nick seemed like a very accomplished, very determined young man. I know you'll--you'll miss him.
Jennifer: Thank you. That's really kind. I was gonna make some more tea. Would you like some?
Aiden: That would be great. Thank you.
Jennifer: Yeah, of course.
Eric: I don't know if you remember, but we met at Daniel and Jennifer's party.
Aiden: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah, of course. Of course I do, yeah.
Eric: Yeah, I was definitely not in the best of moods.
Aiden: [Laughs] You and me both. Yeah, yeah, and your date, she was a very beautiful blonde woman.
Aiden: Nicole. That's right. She seemed a little upset with you. Hope things have improved.
Eric: Yeah, definitely. Things with Nicole and I are absolutely perfect.
Nicole: Oh. Oh, boy. I... I can see it in your eyes. I'm pushy. Everyone knows I'm pushy. You think I pushed Eric into this? I mean, it's hardly a secret that I've wanted to be with Eric since, well, back when he wore his collar, right?
Daniel: Nicole. Nicole.
Nicole: Okay, but this was Eric's idea. He really loves me totally.
Daniel: Yeah, but that is not the problem. [Sighs]
Nicole: Okay, you're... you're scaring me. What's wrong? I mean, did you change your mind? You're acting like you don't want us to get married.
Daniel: Okay, Nicole, marriage is something you and Eric-- you are gonna have to decide for yourselves.
Nicole: We already have. What is going on with you? This is the best thing that's ever happened to me. I'm marrying a wonderful guy who loves me to death, and you're... can't you just be happy for me? I thought you were my friend.
Daniel: Oh, I am! But maybe I've been too much of a friend.
Nicole: Daniel. [Sighs] If I didn't know better... are you jealous? Seriously? I mean, I'M... I'm flattered. I really am, but we're just friends, right? That ship has sailed. You're with Jenn, happy as a clam, and I'm engaged to Eric. I'm engaged to Eric!
Daniel: No, we are friends. Just that. And we have grown to trust each other. Haven't we?
Nicole: Yes, absolutely.
Daniel: And I-I think we've had our problems. Right? First it was Chloe, all of that stuff, and I was a jerk.
Nicole: And I was impossible.
Daniel: But we got past all of that. And then we dealt with EJ. And we got involved romantically. But eventually we came close in such a different way. Like friends, as I've said.
Nicole: Yes. We've gotten through everything, so why... why can't you be happy for me? I mean, Daniel, you're the one who taught me what love really is and how it has to be.
Daniel: Yeah, and then Eric came back into your life.
Nicole: And he's the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Daniel: He is everything to you. And I am proud of the way that you have put him first, risked everything to help him. Which is why, when I learned what I just found out, it--it just... I-I can't understand it.
Sami: So what happened is something that was really, really scary for Allie to think about.
Johnny: Did she cry?
EJ: Well, um, you know, I think she was feeling so many different things at the same time, that she didn't quite know how to feel.
Sami: And I think it's gonna be a long time before it stops being scary for her.
EJ: So here is what we need you to do. I need you to be the best sister, and I need you to be the best brother you can for Allie. Can you do that?
EJ: Good stuff.
Sami: So if you have any questions or anything you wanna talk about, you come to me or daddy, okay? Okay?
Johnny: Is the bad man who hurt Nick gonna hurt us too?
EJ: No, absolutely not.
Sami: No, we are gonna keep you safe. Daddy and I will always keep you all safe.
EJ: Definitely. So how about you both give Allie a big hug when she gets home? Okay?
Sami: Yeah? How about we practice?
EJ: Shall we?
Sami: Hugs right now? For everybody? Aw. Family hug. Mwah.
Aiden: You know, if there's anything I can do for you or your family, please let me know.
Jennifer: Yes. Thank you so much.
Aiden: Okay. Look, I understand what it's like to have tragedy come down on you. You know, you think your future's gonna be one way and then, well, you're just wrong. Okay.
Jennifer: All right, thanks.
Sonny: Nick basically said he was going to get anything he wanted, including a custody agreement giving will no rights whatsoever. So, yeah, I got into his face.
Hope: Sounds like you were pretty angry, Sonny.
Will: Hey, you saw us. There's no denying it. I was really angry at Nick. I mean, that guy just loved rubbing my nose in it, telling me about how he was gonna get away with whatever he wants, and there was nothing I could do to stop it. But people say things when they're mad. You know that.
Rafe: Yes, I do. But normally the guy that they say them to doesn't wind up murdered a few hours later.
Will: Oh, seriously? Come on, Rafe! You don't really think I killed Nick, do you?
Sonny: Yeah, I was angry. Will and I talked to you the same night about Nick's involvement in the whole custody agreement. Do you remember?
Hope: I do.
Sonny: Okay, you know, I mean, like, anger is kind of a natural response around Nick.
Hope: Is there anything else you think I should know about Nick Fallon's death?
Sonny: No. Uh, nothing.
Hope: That's it for now. You're free to go.
Sonny: Great. Okay, see you later.
Rafe: Will, it doesn't matter what I think. What I'm worried about is how this looks.
Will: So you're going to tell hope about the fight that I had with Nick?
Rafe: No, you are.
[Knock on door]
Hope: Hey. Come on in.
Marlena: I've got something. It's important. You're gonna want to hear this.
Marlena: Nick called me last night. I didn't get the message until this morning.
Nick: Julie suggested that I--that I call you.
EJ: Look. I know it may not seem like it at the moment, but this will pass.
Sami: Yeah, right. The cops, they're just gonna stop looking, you know, 'cause that's what they do.
EJ: Of course they will. My man is gone. He's left town. He's never coming back.
Sami: EJ. I still feel awful.
EJ: Come here.
EJ: Listen to me. Nicholas Fallon had a choice. Now, I warned him, repeatedly. He made the wrong choice. Nick is the only one to be blamed for the fact that he had to be murdered.
Gabi: Excuse me?
Eric: Strange, isn't it?
Jennifer: Yeah. Maybe we're just anxious.
Eric: It has been a while.
Eric: [Gulps] Well, you know what? Nicole does love drama. She's probably just trying to drag this on as long as she can.
Jennifer: Yeah, I mean, maybe she's making Daniel guess what's on her mind.
Eric: Yeah, I mean, still, wouldn't we have heard something by now?
Nicole: I'm so confused.
Daniel: What I found out was that something changed.
Daniel: You. You changed. I don't know why, when. Desperate, maybe? I don't know.
Nicole: This doesn't make any sense.
Daniel: Do you remember why we went after Chyka?
Nicole: He gave Kristen the drugs that she used on Eric. He needed to pay.
Daniel: No, you'd given up on that. You wanted proof.
Nicole: To clear Eric's name.
Daniel: No, not just clear it. You wanted proof, so Eric would be able to make a choice. Now, if we could clear his name and he chose you, you would know in your heart that you weren't his fallback position, that he wanted you first, not the church.
Daniel: And we almost got a confession out of Chyka. But something went wrong, and I eventually had to leave.
Nicole: And Chyka got away.
Daniel: And you said, no matter how hard you looked, you never found the proof that you needed to give Eric that choice. And I believed you.
Nicole: There wasn't any proof.
Daniel: No, yes, you had it in spades. You risked everything to give Eric that choice. And you--you took it away. I know the truth, Nicole. Now, I'm not gonna sit here and let you deny it.
Gabi: Sorry, Harold was working right outside the door, so he let me in. I-I should have called, shouldn't I?
Sami: No, no, no, it's okay.
EJ: No, no, no, no. Not at all, no. It's perfectly okay.
Gabi: So how's Allie doing?
Sami: Oh, my mom recommended a psychiatrist we're gonna use. We're gonna make sure she gets through this.
EJ: And, actually, we were just discussing cancelling a few of your upcoming modeling sessions, so you can spend a bit of time focusing on yourself.
Sami: And Ari, of course. You know, we want you to take all the time that you need.
Gabi: I'd actually like to be working. I was thinking on the way over here about the trip to Argentina. Have they set a date yet?
EJ: I don't think that they have, but I can certainly check and see.
Sami: And I know they're very anxious.
Gabi: So am I. You should know also that I called my lawyer this morning and cancelled the custody hearing.
Gabi: Yeah, and, EJ, I'd like for you to draw up a custody agreement just so that we have it. Okay, and I want to make sure that it's absolutely 50/50 and for both of us to have the right to ask for anything.
EJ: I would be glad to.
Nick: It feels really good just actually saying that, you know, like--like-- [Sniffles] Like maybe there's hope.
Hope: We'll need, um... we'll need to have one of our... our techs get a copy of that.
Marlena: Of course.
Hope: That probably explains why we haven't been able to find Nick's phone. Since he was using it, the killer decided to take it.
Marlena: Are you okay?
Hope: I just... I didn't expect...
Marlena: To hear that. I'm sorry. I should have warned you.
Hope: It's just so sad. The whole thing is so sad. It's just--he was reaching out. He was asking for help. Do you know how many times I put off contacting him?
Marlena: No, this is not your fault.
Hope: He wanted to change, Marlena. He wanted to change, and someone took that opportunity away from him. Maybe that call will help us find whoever did that.
Eric: Nicole's not answering my texts.
Jennifer: Well, does she normally?
Eric: Immediately. I wonder if they decided to celebrate.
Jennifer: Well, they shouldn't be the only ones having fun. Why don't we go over there?
Eric: That's a great idea. Let's surprise them.
Nicole: Daniel, I... I don't know what you're... what you're talking about. Are you--are you feeling feverish? I mean, if that wound gets infected, you know...
Nicole: I honestly have no idea where this proof thing is coming from.
Daniel: Well, I'll show you. Now explain that, Nicole.
