Hope: He wanted to change, and someone took that opportunity away from him. Maybe that call will help us find whoever did that.
Will: Sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt.
Rafe: What were you saying about Nick's last words?
Marlena: Nick left me a voice message last night...
Marlena: Just as he was being shot.
Jordan: I barely knew him, but the way he came walking into the square covered in blood... I had nightmares last night.
Ben: Well, if you had known him, you'd probably feel a whole lot better about the whole thing.
Ben: Come on. Someone shot and killed Nick Fallon last night, and except for those two aunts or whatever, no one else cared.
Jordan: Including his cousin Abigail?
Daniel: Why don't you explain this, Nicole?
Nicole: Uh, I don't--I don't know what you're talking about.
Daniel: Oh, I think you do. And it's time for you to come clean.
Will: Nick called you? What did he say?
Marlena: He was reaching out. He was asking about counseling.
Will: [Chuckles] What?
Rafe: Yeah, or pretending to.
Hope: Will, what are you doing here?
Will: I needed to talk to you about something.
Rafe: Do you want me to stay?
Will: No, I'll be okay. Thanks.
Rafe: All right. Marlena, good to see you.
Marlena: Yes, you too, Rafe. Are you okay?
Marlena: Call me as soon as you're done. Promise? Okay.
Hope: So, will... what did you want to talk to me about?
Will: It's about Nick. Um... right before he was shot, I... threatened to kill him.
EJ: Look, I really wanted to check in, you know, but...
Abigail: But you didn't quite know how to explain checking in with me to your fiancée?
EJ: Well, yeah. And you were with that--you know, that nice chap. It looked like you were well taken care of.
Abigail: [Scoffs] Oh, so--so no worries, then, right?
EJ: Hey, I think you're in shock.
Abigail: No, I-I was in shock. I was in shock... but I shouldn't have been. God, I should've known by now. I should've wised up and faced the facts.
EJ: What facts exactly?
Abigail: The facts of who you are and the things that you do, the fact that as soon as Nick let you know he knew about us, he was as good as dead.
Jennifer: Oh. Hmm. That must be Daniel, but he usually calls my cell. Hold on. Hello? Oh, Caroline, hi. Yeah. Yeah, it is sad about Nick. Well, thank you very much. That is so kind of you. Caroline, that is not true. Are you forgetting that Nick let you take the fall for a crime that he committed? Come on. Listen, and when he got out of prison, you gave him a job. You gave him a place to stay. You were so generous to him. Listen, you want to talk to Eric? He's here with me. Yeah, hold on.
Eric: Hey, grandma. Yeah, I'm glad you called. I was gonna call you later, actually. Grandma, please. Don't do this to yourself. Come on, you did everything you could for Nick. Yes, everything you could.
Nicole: I told you, I don't know what you're talking about. I don't--I don't know what these are.
Daniel: You barely looked at them, Nicole. Look at them.
Nicole: Okay. All right. Oh, my God. This proves that Chyka gave Kristen the drugs to seduce Eric. This clears his name.
Daniel: Yeah, that's right. That's exactly what it does.
Nicole: I don't know where you found these, but thank God you did.
Daniel: Really? Really? "Thank God"?
Nicole: Of course.
Daniel: So you're saying-- you're saying you've never seen these before... and you're glad that we have them now.
Nicole: Yes, of course I am. I mean, if I had seen these, I would have shown them to Eric. I would have told him. In fact, you know what? I'm gonna do that right now.
Daniel: Nicole, stop. For your own sake, just stop.
Marlena: Hi. Do you have a minute?
Rafe: Yeah, sure.
Marlena: Well, um, I wanted to ask, is--is will in a lot of trouble?
Rafe: No, no, no. Everything's gonna be fine. But I will let him fill you in on the details, okay?
Rafe: By the way, have you seen Allie? 'Cause she was pretty shaken up after last night.
Marlena: Yes, Lucas is taking her to see a colleague of mine.
Rafe: Good. Glad to hear. I actually think my sister should see someone as well.
Marlena: Well, I'd be glad to give you a name.
Rafe: I was hoping that you could check up on her, if it's not too much to ask. I don't know if she'll talk to a stranger. I'm really worried about her.
Marlena: It is not too much to ask.
Rafe: Oh, good.
Marlena: She's like family to me. I'm--I'm glad to help.
Rafe: Thank you. Thanks. It's just that he, uh... Nick did quite a number on her before he died, and, um... I'm just glad that he's not around to hurt my sister anymore or will or Ari or anyone, for that matter. Whoever killed him did us all a favor.
Marlena: It sounds like you think he deserved to die.
Hope: Interviewing William Horton, my office. William... you just stated that you threatened to kill Nick Fallon. Can you tell me why?
Will: W-we were fighting.
Hope: A physical fight?
Will: I started it, but we were both throwing punches when Rafe broke it up.
Hope: Detective Hernandez.
Will: That's right.
Hope: Okay, so, again, I'll ask you... what were you arguing about?
Will: Well, it--it was what Sonny and I had told you before. Nick had convinced Gabi to draw up a custody agreement, and in it, it stated that I would only be able to visit Arianna every other weekend. He was trying to take my daughter from me... again. He said that I was unfit to be a father. So I punched him. But I didn't kill him.
Hope: I have to ask. Where were you last night at 8:45 P.M.?
Will: Is that--
Hope: That's when Nick was shot.
EJ: Look, um... I know you're upset, obviously, but you really just need to calm down.
Abigail: "Calm down"? You want me to calm down?
EJ: I think you're overreacting.
Abigail: "Overreacting"? You think that I'm overreacting? I stood there in my mother's office when you told me that-- that I had to keep my mouth shut, that I couldn't tell her the truth, and--
EJ: Aren't you glad you didn't say anything now?
Abigail: You swore to me that Nick could be reasoned with, that you would convince him that he shouldn't say anything about us.
EJ: Okay, do me a favor. Keep your voice down.
Abigail: You promised me that our secret would stay secret. You really kept your promise, didn't you?
Nicole: Daniel? Daniel! Why are you talking to me like this? Why are you looking at me like-- I have never seen these papers before in my life.
Daniel: Well, I am looking at you like you're lying.
Nicole: Why? What? No. I'm confused... upset, hurt. I have no idea where these papers came from.
Daniel: Well, I went on to smith island to look for Jennifer's necklace. While I was searching in the woods, I found them there.
Nicole: Smith island? That--this doesn't make any sense.
Daniel: Oh, I think it does. See, at first, I thought you lost them there. But then I started thinking about how weird you were with Liam. You said you were investigating him because he drugged me.
Nicole: He did drug you, and you know it, and he was crazy and obsessed about Jennifer.
Daniel: No, no, no, you were right about him. But in spite of all of your excuses, I never really understood why you didn't tell me that you suspected him, but then I realized he had something on you. Yeah, he had these on you. Yeah? He blackmailed you to keep you quiet.
Nicole: No, no, no. You've got it all wrong.
Daniel: Do I? Well, what about that paper that I found in your hotel months ago, the one that was taped back together because it had been shredded, kind of like this one right here? You said you thought it came from Stefano to mess with Eric's head, but that wasn't true, because all along, you had evidence to prove Eric's innocence, and you didn't say a single word?
Will: I'm not sure exactly where I was at that time. I-I know that I was returning a book at the library.
Hope: Which library?
Will: Salem U.
Hope: Where'd you go from there?
Will: Straight to the town square.
Hope: Any stops along the way?
Hope: Were you alone?
Hope: Did anyone see you?
Will: Not anybody that I know. I was on campus. There's--
Hope: Do you own or have access to a gun?
Will: No. I mean--
Hope: You mean what?
Will: I mean, I know people.
Hope: Will, did you have a gun last night in your possession?
Will: No. I didn't kill Nick, hope. I didn't.
Hope: Okay. That's it for now. Thank you for coming in. You saved me a call. I'm sure Sonny told you that I'll be questioning everyone in the square last night.
Will: You talked to Sonny? He was here?
Hope: I did.
Will: I didn't know that. I'm telling you the truth. You do believe me, don't you?
Hope: Will, the reality is, right now... I can't rule out anyone as a suspect.
Ben: She--she was in shock, just numb. It looked like she didn't care, but she did.
Jordan: I'm not judging. I'm just making an observation. I like Abigail. She's my friend. Looks like you like her too.
Ben: She's nice.
Jordan: So last night at the hospital--I didn't know you two were so close.
Ben: We've talked before. Look, I-I walked in on her and Nick. He was being a real jerk, like he was out to upset her.
Jordan: And you stood up for her, didn't you? Tell me, Galahad, did you get into a fight with him?
Ben: I just stood up for her.
Jordan: Right. Ben, do you still have that gun?
EJ: Abigail... you know how many enemies Nick had.
Abigail: Yes, I do. A lot of people had motive, EJ, but you had something different, didn't you? Your daddy's contact list. God, it is so like you to do this, to handle things so professionally.
EJ: That's not how it happened.
Abigail: No, it's not. But what happened, I know. What happened is that Nick threatened you, and then he ended up eliminated. And the way that he died had DiMera written all over it. [Gasps]
EJ: Abigail... you know me. I swear to you... I would never do that to Nick. I swear to you. Okay? Okay? Okay, good.
Abigail: I do--I do know you. I know you very well. And I know... that you are a world-class liar.
EJ: Yes, I am.
Nicole: Why would I track down Chyka? Why would I risk my life to find that proof and then not show Eric when I found it?
Daniel: Okay, as I said before, I think you meant it at the time. But obviously something changed. So what happened when I left with Stefano's thug, when you were alone there with Chyka? Did he offer you evidence in exchange for his freedom?
Nicole: No. I swear to you, he overpowered me.
Daniel: Well, then you must have gotten the evidence after he left.
Nicole: Daniel, you have to listen to me, okay? I-I-I don't know what this is. I don't know where these papers came from, okay? I mean, maybe... wait a minute. Stefano, maybe--maybe he was behind this... and Kristen. They're trying to frame me.
Daniel: A conspiracy, huh?
Nicole: Yes. It's the only explanation. I would never betray Eric. I mean, please, you have to stop with these horrible accusations, Daniel, for the sake of our friendship. Why can't you believe me?
Rafe: Ah, I wouldn't say that Nick deserved to die. It's just that the guy... well, he just went around sticking his thumb in people's eyes. The way he treated will--
Marlena: The way he treated will? Is that why will wanted to see hope?
Rafe: Like I said, I'll let him fill you in on the details.
Marlena: I guess we can't ignore the fact that will had a very strong motive.
Rafe: Well, he wasn't the only one. I spent half a year in a damn hospital bed because a guy thought I was Nick and tried to beat me to death. The day that guy got out of jail, he hated Nick so much, he came back to town to exact revenge. I just get the feeling that Nick had that effect on a whole hell of a lot of people.
Marlena: You mean prisoners, or you mean people of Salem?
Rafe: I don't know. And I don't really care. I'm just glad he's out of my sister's life for good.
Ben: So you really think I shot that guy last night.
Jordan: No, I don't think that, and I didn't say that. But I want to know about that gun, because if the police find out about it--
Ben: Jordan, you know why I have that gun.
Jordan: Yeah, and I also know you don't have a permit for it. And if anyone finds out, it's gonna raise a lot of questions that won't be good for either one of us.
Ben: Then let's make sure that no one does find out about it.
Jordan: Just please be careful, okay? Not just for my sake, but for yours.
Hope: Yeah, these photos are pretty revealing. You've been very helpful. Thank you.
[Knock at door]
Hope: EJ. Have a seat. Thanks for coming in. Your attorney meeting you here?
EJ: If this is about last night, I don't really feel I need my attorney here.
Hope: Consider yourself advised.
EJ: [Laughs] Yes, thank you, detective. I know my rights.
Hope: This is for the record. Interviewing EJ DiMera, may 15, 2014, my office. Well, EJ, I have recently received some very interesting photos of you and my cousin, and I'm hoping you can explain them.
Jennifer: Eric, I lost that Horton thing--that thing that is so important to my grandmother... that no matter what you're going through, you don't lose track of your family. And I lost track of Nick.
Eric: Did he ever ask something of you, and you turned him down? I mean, did he ever try reaching out, and you turned your back on him?
Jennifer: No, but I'm the grown-up. I should have reached out to him.
Eric: And he's a grown-up too. He made a lot of terrible, terrible choices, and he didn't have any regard for anybody else's feelings about them.
Jennifer: That doesn't sound very priestlike.
Eric: God does say forgive. So forgive Nick. Forgive yourself. You had a lot on your plate.
Jennifer: Yeah, I'll try. Thank you for listening. I mean, as you can imagine, with what Nick did to Melanie, it's not easy to have a conversation with Daniel about him.
Daniel: I really do want to believe you, but I can't.
Nicole: Why? I thought you were my friend.
Daniel: Damn it, I am your friend, and as your friend, I know you. I know you want to admit the truth.
Nicole: I'm telling you the truth.
Daniel: You have been lying.
Daniel: For months, you have been lying. Remember when you came back here with that bag of shredded paper, and you wouldn't even let me touch it. You had just shredded those papers, hadn't you?
Nicole: If I shredded them, why in the hell would I have saved them?
Daniel: Because as I'd said before, you knew what you'd done wrong. You told me that those papers could save somebody, and you, you were talking about Eric. You realized what you had done to him, his future, his soul-- what you had done to the man you loved.
Nicole: Please stop it.
Daniel: You shredded the papers. You put 'em back together. And a good person... does that for the person they love. And that's why you kept having the impulse to tell me. You tried. You'd do it, then you'd back off, and you wanted to do it again, because you wanted to tell me, because it is eating away at you, and it still is. So please just tell me the truth. Tell me!
Nicole: [Whimpers] [Crying] Okay. Okay, it's true. All of it is true. I could've cleared Eric, and I didn't. That's-- [Sobbing] That's what I did to the best man that I've ever known. I'm sorry. Unwrap your paradise.
Jordan: Hey. What are you doing here? What's with the flowers?
Rafe: Well, those flowers are about last night. Thank you for being so nice to Gabi.
Jordan: Oh, I didn't do anything.
Rafe: You did.
Jordan: Poor Gabi. Do you have any idea who did it?
Rafe: No. No, hope's questioning everyone who was in the square last night, but, um, no real leads.
Jordan: Well, I know you took yourself off the case, but...
Rafe: But what?
Jordan: Rafe, who do you think killed Nick?
Abigail: I-I just... I just wanted to say thank you for last night. You were really sweet.
Ben: How you doing today?
Abigail: A little, um, numb and a little shaky, but... okay, I'm--I'm lying. I-I'm in definite caffeine withdrawals.
Ben: Well, you know I can help you with that. There you go.
Abigail: Thank you. [Sighs]
Ben: You're not okay.
Abigail: [Sighs, chuckles] [Sighs]
Hope: You don't seem too anxious to turn those over, EJ.
EJ: [Sighs] [Sighs] It just looks like Nick Fallon leaving his office.
Hope: It was taken by mad world security cameras. Nick looks upset, don't you think? Take a look at the next one. That's you leaving his office about a half minute later. You also look upset, one might even say angry.
EJ: Mm-hmm. What is your point, detective?
Hope: My point... these photos were taken the day that Nick Fallon was murdered. Now, of course, on one hand, it could be a coincidence.
EJ: Mm-hmm, and on the other hand?
Hope: And on the other hand, you may want to rethink having your attorney present after all.
Daniel: Why didn't you tell Eric?
Nicole: I meant to. I swear it. I meant to. After Chyka escaped, I-I found the evidence in his safe. I was so happy. I-I rushed back to Salem, and Eric came over, and I was gonna give him the documents.
Eric: And then he told me... he told me he left the priesthood to be with me. Do you have any idea how long I've been waiting to hear that? And I just--I couldn't-- I couldn't do it. I mean, it was... I kept telling myself--I kept telling myself, "you have to give him the papers," and I couldn't. I-I just couldn't. I know it was so selfish. But I told myself, "he's already made the decision, so what difference does it make?"
Daniel: The difference would be that Eric could prove to everyone--the church, his parishioners, his family-- that Kristen raped him. Nicole... it changes everything.
Nicole: I know. That's what I was afraid of. Me? Dramatic? No.
Daniel: How did Liam get a hold of these papers?
Nicole: You had said that this was eating at me. And it was. It was--it was driving me crazy, and, you know, one time, I was gonna undo everything. I mean, I got the papers, and I was putting them together, but it was so frustrating. It was awful work, and the whole time I was doing that, I just kept hearing this voice saying, "you're never gonna give Eric these papers. You could lose him."
Nicole: Hope told me that Chyka's case was closed... and I was--I was still crazy, and so I... I took the papers that I had shredded that night to this rest stop, and I was going to burn them, and that's when Liam showed up.
Daniel: He followed you.
Nicole: I guess so. I didn't even know who he was. He told me he was a fan, and he had seen me on TV. I men, he must have followed me... because he--I mean, I was figuring out what he was doing to you and Jennifer.
Daniel: And blackmailed you with these. He blackmailed you--well, he blackmailed you into not telling me or Jennifer the name of the man who was out to ruin our lives.
Nicole: Daniel, if anything happened to either one of you, I would never have forgiven myself.
Daniel: Okay, wait a minute. You shot Liam. Was that to keep him quiet?
Nicole: No. No, Daniel, I was trying to save your life. Do you have any idea how much you mean to me? You're my best friend in the whole world, and now you hate me, and you're never gonna forgive me, and why should you?
Daniel: You're wrong, Nicole. I do forgive you.
Eric: See, the thing is, is that I haven't told my mom or Sami about the engagement yet.
Jennifer: Okay, so are you asking me to help you smooth the waters a little bit?
Eric: I was thinking you could tell them. Tell them that Nicole is changed. She's not the person she was.
Jennifer: No, you're right. I mean, I'll do what I can. And my words may hold some weight, you know? Nicole and I--we have a past, but we are great friends now.
Eric: Right, because the only reason Nicole was like that was because she was unhappy, but that--that's changed.
Jennifer: I know it's changed. I have never seen her as happy as she is today.
Eric: Me too.
Jennifer: Right, so why are we sitting here talking about this, because the two of you have so much to celebrate, and we need to get out of here right now.
Marlena: And you know that Rafe was right. It's good that you went straight to hope and told her what happened with Nick.
Will: It ended up with me being interviewed on tape.
Marlena: That's her job. She will interview everybody involved with the case.
Well, not everyone involved in the case threatened to kill him.
Marlena: He was threatening you too. Look, the two of you didn't get along, and it only got worse--
Will: Didn't get along? I hated him. I'm glad he's dead.
Abigail: I hate that you're using your break time to keep me from falling apart.
Ben: Even though you had what seemed to be a pretty intense relationship with him, your cousin was murdered last night. I-I just--I think you could use a friend.
Abigail: You were... you were right last night. I do feel guilty.
Ben: I think it's just hard because of the way things ended between the two of you.
Abigail: [Sighs] Oh, God. I wish that-- oh, I should've... I should've tried harder to work things out with him, you know? Maybe if I would've just kept my cool, then none of this would have ever happened.
Ben: It's not your fault, Abigail. Nick's murder had nothing to do with you.
Abigail: No? Because I'm not so sure.
EJ: Those photographs don't prove anything. You must really be desperate.
Hope: Just tell me what you and Nick were arguing about and stop wasting my time.
EJ: Look, who says Nick and I were arguing? [Laughs] Do you have a source? Okay... Nick and I had a minor disagreement.
Hope: Oh, yeah. I mean, the fact that you went to his office, felt that you had to speak to him face-to-face, makes it seem like something serious.
EJ: It was business. It had come to my attention that, uh, some of the ideas he was developing for mad world cosmetics were... uncannily similar to some of the projects I'd been working on at countess Wilhelmina.
Hope: So Nick could have cost you a lot of money? Possibly millions? Some might call that a motive.
EJ: Well, some might also call it rather shoddy police work, detective. I tell you what-- let's play your game, okay? Let's just say that's my motive. The problem you're going to have is you can't prove opportunity. Samantha and I were wandering around the Horton town square when the poor lad was shot, and there are plenty of upstanding citizens who I'm sure would be quite happy to attest to that.
Hope: Oh, yeah, I'm sure there are. But I would not assume for a second that EJ DiMera would do his own dirty work. So, if it turns out we can prove that this was a professional hit, I think you and I both know there were very few people in that square with those kind of connections.
Nicole: Thank you. Daniel, thank you so much. You have no idea how much your forgiveness means to me.
Daniel: I know how much you struggled with what you've done. And I know how much you love Eric.
Nicole: I do. I do, and I'm gonna make him really happy-- really, really happy. So you're not gonna tell him, are you?
Daniel: No. You are.
Rafe: Well, a lot of people hated Nick... so I'd be hard-pressed to narrow down the suspects. The ironic thing is, if I were still working the case, you know who I'd put at the top of the list?
EJ: I suppose I should have known it would only be a matter of time before you tried to pin this crime on my family, no matter how far the reach. Detective... [Clears throat] If you have any legitimate questions you would like to ask me... you know where to find me.
Marlena: You don't mean that. You are not capable of that kind of hatred.
Will: Are you sure about that? He said that I wasn't fit to be a father... that he was going to try to take my daughter away from me. If Rafe hadn't have pulled me off of him right then and there, I might have killed him. Instead...
Marlena: Instead what? Is there something you are trying to tell me?
Hope: Julie, I know that Nick was pointing to someone after he collapsed, but the problem is... no one can tell me who he was pointing at. Of course... it's gonna take time to question everyone.
Ben: [Sighs] It's like I keep making things worse. Do you want me to just go?
Abigail: No. No, please, don't go. Stay with me. It's not you. It's just-- I just don't know how I'm ever gonna forgive myself for what happened to Nick.
Ben: You're too hard on yourself. You're a good person.
Abigail: No, I'm not.
Ben: Yes, you are. Look, I know we haven't known each other that long, but I already know that you're an amazing person with a really kind heart. I've never met anyone like you.
Nicole: Daniel, I can't tell Eric. We're gonna be married.
Daniel: Which is even more reason to come clean. Do you want your whole marriage to be based on a lie?
Nicole: It won't be. It'll be based on love.
Daniel: No, we're not negotiating this. Either you tell Eric what you've done, or I will.
Nicole: No, you can't do this. I won't let you.
Daniel: No, Nicole. Nicole!
