Episode #12509 ~ Will & Sonny argue; Chad suggests Ben is lying to Abigail; Victor discovers the situation with Clyde has become violent; Marlena urges John to follow his heart.
Provided By SuzanneWill: Look, what happened between us shouldn't have. And my personal life, it's--
Paul: It's what? It's off limits? Don't be a hypocrite, will. I mean, you use your personal life to get me to announce to the world that I'm gay. I mean, you talk like you're some kind of expert. But besides me, you've only been with one guy.
Will: You say that like it's wrong, somehow. I fell in love with the first man I got involved with. It was right. For both of us. It still is.
Paul: Well, if that's true-- if it was so right-- then why did things happen between us?
Will: Like I say, they shouldn't have.
Paul: And you never say that you didn't want it to, or that you didn't like it, and you never say that you don't want it to happen again.
Victor: Is Andros in the hospital?
Damon: No, we took him to a doctor who's sympathetic. So he didn't have to answer any questions about his injuries. He's home now.
Victor: Put somebody on the house, just in case.
Damon: Done. Mr. Kiriakis, the men are upset. We haven't had trouble like this on the dock since 2009. Do you have any idea who's behind it?
Victor: Yes, I know exactly who it is. A low-life hillbilly named Clyde.
Rafe: Don't need to wait for the bill. It's on the house.
Clyde: That's mighty kind of you, Rafe, but I think I can afford this.
Rafe: Yeah, I'm sure you can. But here's the deal, Clyde. Drink your drinks, make your toasts, do whatever. And then get the hell out. You're not welcome in here.
Kate: Now who's that gesture for?
Rafe: It's not a gesture.
Kate: We know that Jordan's here. Don't you realize that that ship has sailed, Rafe?
Jordan: What the hell has Clyde done to you?
Jordan: Because you two were having a great time in there. Clearly, he has done something to make you forget what a monster he is.
Ben: Jordan, he's my--
Jordan: What? He's not a monster?
Ben: He's my father. And no, of course I didn't forget what he did, but he's trying to make up for all that now. Doesn't that count for something?
Abigail: I am not always running to Ben's rescue. Thank you very much. And for your information, he's perfectly capable of taking care of himself.
Chad: He lied about Clyde funding Jordan's project. And you fell all over yourself trying to cover for him.
Abigail: No, he didn't lie--
Chad: Yes, he did, it's what he does.
Abigail: Oh, really? That is amazing coming from you, Chad.
Chad: Okay, so he's been completely honest with you all along? Uh-huh, see for all you know, he's lying to you right now.
Marlena: I don't know how you make her laugh that hard.
John: What can I say? I've got the touch.
Sonny: I think all the laughing knocked her out. She's never been in bed this early.
Marlena: Is will coming home pretty soon? I thought we might get a chance to see him.
Sonny: He should be home already, but the article he's writing... it consumes him.
Paul: What about now? Do you want something to happen again? Right now?
Damon: What's a hillbilly doing in our business?
Victor: I take it that's rhetorical
Damon: Actually, no.
Victor: His children came to town so he brought himself and his particular brand of business with him. He has some trucking, as you know, and he also has some front businesses that he uses to launder money from his extracurricular work. Apparently, he's managed to corral most of the drug business in the Ozarks.
Damon: Oh. Tough territory.
Victor: Ugly business. And he has a particularly ugly way of carrying it out. He's the reason that we have drugs in riverfront park.
Damon: Oh, that's off limits. Everyone agreed, even the DiMeras.
Victor: Yeah, well... when EJ died, he saw an opportunity and he grabbed it. He's been a very busy man.
Damon: What do you want me to do, Mr. "K"?
Victor: I will take care of Weston.
Damon: I have men who would line up to help you.
Victor: I'll handle it.
Victor: And there's my gorgeous wife.
Maggie: Oh, Mr. Damon, nice to see you.
Damon: Mrs. Kiriakis, it's a pleasure.
Maggie: Well, hi, darling.
Damon: You look lovely.
Maggie: Thank you. Oh, I had a little event I had to oversee at chez rouge. And I was all dressed up. So I thought that we should check out your new nightclub. See how things are going.
Rafe: This has nothing to do with Jordan, Kate. Now drink up and get out.
Clyde: Well, it's a free country, Rafe. You're not a cop anymore.
Rafe: Well, what I am is manager of this fine establishment, and we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
Clyde: Not without cause you can't. My money's as good as anyone else's.
Rafe: Seriously doubt that.
Kate: Now that's out of line.
Rafe: Oh, 'cause you know him so well?
Clyde: This isn't about Jordan at all, is it? You don't like it that Kate's found a new man.
Rafe: I don't give a damn what Kate does. The minute she brought you to town, any concern I might've had for her was lost.
Kate: You know, whether you approve of me or my choices, this is bad business.
Rafe: Oh, how do you figure?
Kate: Clyde and I are the type of clientele that attract media attention. So if you throw us out for no reason, what kind of publicity do you think that will bring you?
Rafe: What do you say, Clyde? You want a bunch of press poking around in your background?
Clyde: Oh, I think you got yourself riled up over nothing, Rafe. After all, you don't want your first night here spoiled by a misunderstanding with two of Salem's leading citizens, do you?
Abigail: You don't anything about Ben and you-- you can't even begin to understand--
Chad: Right. What? Perfect, honest guys like him? That must be a really nice change of pace for you after me.
Abigail: It is.
Chad: And EJ.
Abigail: He is.
Chad: Which? Perfect or honest?
Abigail: Very, very different from you.
Chad: And my brother. Don't forget, we were a package tour for you.
Abigail: You know, I don't need this--
Chad: Look, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm worried about you.
Abigail: Are you? Yeah, I can tell.
Chad: This guy shows up out of nowhere, he doesn't tell you his real name, he doesn't tell you that Jordan is his sister.
Abigail: They were both hiding from Clyde, all right?
Chad: Because he's big, bad, and awful?
Abigail: You are such a jerk. You don't even know what you're talking about.
Chad: That was serious. I believe every foul thing that Ben and Jordan have said about him. So why is Ben sucking down champagne at his table?
Abigail: Hey, he is trying--
Chad: No, he's trying to get a free ride.
Abigail: Wha--no he's--that-- no, that's not who Ben is, okay? He has too much integrity for that.
Chad: Well, look. Okay. I am glad you found your match on that front. Someone that you can be completely open with from the jump. You did tell him about you and me? And EJ?
Abigail: What I discuss with Ben is none of your business.
Chad: That's what I thought. You have a really great relationship, Abigail. Nicely done.
Jordan: Clyde has come into some money and you can bet it didn't come honestly. And now I he's throwing it around.
Ben: He's trying to buy me?
Jordan: Yes! Exactly.
Ben: Jordan, he's honestly trying to change. He's seeing Dr. Evans and I've noticed a difference in him.
Jordan: It is a sham.
Ben: How can you be so sure?
Clyde: I got a chance with Ben. You do anything to mess that up, I will tell him everything. How you climbed behind the wheel of that truck and deliberately killed his mama--
Clyde: And his baby brother.
Jordan: I don't want to lose you.
Ben: You can't lose me. You're my big sister. Look at me. I owe you my life. I'll never forget that.
Chad: You want to leave?
Jordan: No. It's okay. Let's stay awhile.
Abigail: Good, you look too nice to waste it. I love that dress, it's pretty.
Jordan: Thank you. So do I. A very special guy got it for me.
Sonny: As I give you this ring...
Will: So I give you my heart. No. No. This can't happen again.
John: Well, I'd go in as a detective. They're looking for someone to replace Rafe.
Marlena: What happens to basic black?
John: It's all right. I hired a new creative director and CFO when I was in Milan. They're handling all the day-to-day
Sonny: Do you get keep your stake in the company or would you have to sell?
John: No conflict.
Sonny: So you get to play cop and not give up anything. Seems like a no-brainer.
John: Well, I'm considering it.
Sonny: Come on, you've already made up your mind.
John: Doc and I are discussing it.
Sonny: Uh-huh. I'm glad you're back together. He's making the right noise, but I think he's made up his mind.
Marlena: He has. Both: [Laughing]
Marlena: Well, he's so on to you.
John: This is our decision, it's not just mine. If you don't want me to do it, I'm not gonna do--
Marlena: Are you kidding? I want you to do what makes you happy--what you want to do. It is the only way this thing's going to work.
John: What did I ever do to deserve you?
Rafe: Leading citizens. That's what you are?
Kate: Is everything okay?
Ben: I hope so.
Clyde: Looks like.
Kate: Oh. Rafe, there's a DiMera, is he going to be allowed to stay?
Abigail: What's going on?
Ben: Is there a problem?
Rafe: No. You two enjoy your evening.
Ben: Oh. Thanks, man. What was that all about?
Clyde: Nothing important. Darling, let's let the kids enjoy their evening in peace, shall we?
Abigail: Oh, that's okay, you don't--it's okay.
Clyde: I think my son would like some alone time with you and I can't says I blame him.
Chad: Rafe. Hey, congratulations on the new gig. It's a big step up from detective.
Rafe: Oh, it's more of a lateral move 'cause I get to see the same people.
Chad: It's all service industry I suppose.
Rafe: Well, there's a table over there if you want to sit. I'll send your server over.
Chad: Thank you.
Abigail: It was nice of your dad to get our drinks.
Ben: Yeah. He's trying. I just wish Jordan could see that.
Abigail: Well, she stayed. That must mean something, right?
Ben: I don't know.
Maggie: Oh, my goodness. Victor, you did so well. It's gorgeous.
Victor: Thank you, ma'am.
Maggie: [Laughs] Victor?
Victor: You know Stefano sent his bastard spawn over here to check us out.
Maggie: He's a young man on a date with a lovely young woman. I am sure he is not casing the joint. You're gonna have to get used to serving people a whole lot worse than Chad.
Victor: What's worse than a DiMera?
Victor: I do not want to cater to the duck dynasty crowd. I'll tell you what, why don't you take Chad, I'll take Weston. We'll frog march the two of them out together and make sure their sorry asses never darken our door again. You know, I don't think my temperament is suited to the hospitality industry.
Rafe: No, no, no, no. I'm right there with you. I started to throw Clyde out earlier and then Kate reminded me that there's no real reason to throw out two upstanding members of the business community. It'll just lead to bad reviews.
Victor: Yeah, well, Kate has an inflated idea of her position in this town.
Rafe: Well, yeah, but all it takes is a couple of people on social media.
Victor: Oh, yeah.
Rafe: And you know she'd be the first one to do it. You know what we really need is some ammunition. Something we can use against Weston. You happen to find out anything new on him?
Victor: Yes. I did.
Kate: You have so many friends here.
Clyde: I only need one. And she's right here.
Kate: Oh. Mr. Shin. I have to take this.
Clyde: It's a nice establishment you have here, Victor. Reminds me a little of my own place.
Victor: And where's that?
Clyde: Down Branson.
Victor: Ah. Well, I can't imagine we live up to your standards.
Clyde: Is that a soft way of trying to toss me out?
Victor: Mr. Weston, when I toss you out, there'll be no question as to what's happening.
Clyde: Do we have a problem, sir?
Victor: My employees are like my family. You attack one of them, you attack me. Big mistake.
Sonny: No, it's cool, you did the right thing. Thanks, "t".
Marlena: Is everything all right?
Sonny: Yeah, no problem.
Marlena: Well, you know what? Why should be going.
Sonny: Well, thank you so much for stopping by.
John: Oh, yeah. Sorry about the time.
Sonny: No, we're lucky to see you. Once you start that new gig--
John: It hasn't been decided yet. Knock it off.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Marlena: Tell will I'm sorry we missed him.
Sonny: Will do.
Marlena: Thanks. My dear.
John: See you, kid.
Sonny: See you later. Where are you, will?
Paul: You want to stop? Now?
Will: I'm sorry. But what we're doing, it should not-- it shouldn't have even gotten this--it's wrong. Paul, what we're doing, it's wrong.
Paul: I wish you would have thought about that ten minutes ago. You should go.
Will: I'm sorry.
Paul: So I heard.
Will: Look, why don't we-- why don't we step back. We'll take a breath. Why don't we just pick up where we left off. Before. Before.
Paul: You mean the article. 'Cause that's all you care about, isn't it?
Will: I want to do right by you. In print. I want to make sure that we get everything there, that you--
Paul: I hate talking about myself, okay? Let's--enough already.
Will: I've read every interview that you ever gave, Paul. You were very vocal about yourself.
Paul: Yeah, maybe it was fun for the first year or two. But after that...
Will: After that maybe it stopped being fun because you weren't being the real you. You were being this invented Paul Narita.
Paul: Oh man, here we go again with the armchair psychology. Next, what? You're gonna tell me, "be true to your you"?
Will: [Laughs] Well, I mean, seems like you've read a book or two. You've checked out the websites at least.
Paul: You think this is fun? What? A joke?
Will: I know that this is wrenching, but--
Paul: Actually, it's not. Because it's not gonna happen.
Will: Paul, you can't just wish this away. This is who you are.
Paul: So say it out loud? On the cover of your magazine, over your by-line? Where it will do the entire world so much good.
Will: Whether I do the article or not, it's--
Paul: And you'd be okay with that? Hmm? Because as of right now, I'm not so sure I want any of this.
Will: Because of what just happened?
Paul: Nothing just happened.
Will: Exactly. Are you saying that you won't do the article unless I sleep with you again?
Kate: Hey, Jordan. It's so nice to see you out with your family.
Jordan: I'm here with Chad.
Chad: And we're enjoying our evening, Kate, so--
Kate: That dress is more lovely in person. Good choice. No, he didn't consult me. I just saw it on his computer.
Chad: See you tomorrow, Kate.
Kate: Yeah, I'll see you tomorrow. I think it's so nice that Rafe is here, don't you? I was so afraid that he was going to have to leave town when he got kicked off the police force. But I think this kind of work really suits him, don't you?
Jordan: I wouldn't know.
Kate: Well, you two enjoy yourselves.
Chad: This is just one fun bump-into after another, isn't it? Let's get out of here.
Jordan: Right now, this minute? Yes, please.
Ben: That didn't last long.
Abigail: You can go after her if you want.
Ben: Maggie, thank you so much for including me on Christmas eve.
Maggie: Oh, you're most welcome.
Abigail: Does your dad know Victor?
Maggie: I didn't know your father was in town.
Ben: Yeah, yeah. He's actually been here a while. His name's Clyde Weston.
Maggie: The man who gave all that money to your project?
Ben: That's him.
Clyde: The only person who made a mistake was your man on the docks. Now I know change can be hard at any age, but--
Victor: You think we're on a talk show sofa? Does that genial act work with anyone? A man was almost beaten to death over a shipping deal!
Clyde: It's business. Big business, as you know. And your man got in my way.
Victor: And now you're in mine.
Paul: Isn't that the reason you slept with me in the first place? 'Cause you wanted to get your story first-hand?
Will: No. I told you that wasn't it.
Paul: Yeah, you told me. But what if I said yes? That the only way I'll come out in your story is if you sleep with me again?
Paul: Would that be a good enough reason for you to cross the line one more time? Don't answer that. I'm being a jerk.
Will: It's okay.
Paul: I just assumed-- I mean, look, you never said a word about there being someone else. I didn't know.
Will: I know. I'm sorry, I should've said something.
Paul: Why didn't you?
Will: I guess... I guess I was just so flattered that someone like you would find me interesting. I wasn't thinking straight.
Paul: Do you ever?
Will: Whatever you decide to do, Paul, it's fine. But my editor is calling me four times a day. And I need to submit some version of the story soon, whether or not you decide to come out.
Clyde: I'm not in your way, Victor, I just stepped over you. Your man got in the way of progress.
Victor: Now you listen to me, you maggot.
Clyde: No, no, no, you listen to me, old man. Now you and DiMera have had a good long run in this town. 30 odd years. And you have my respect, you did it well. So well that you got yourself out of the life and into a multi-national corporation. So congratulations. Now you just walk away. Enjoy your fortune 500 life with your lovely Horton bride, and leave the rough business to me.
Victor: You really don't have a clue who you're dealing with.
Clyde: I see a shadow of the man who used to run this town. You and DiMera fumbled the ball and I grabbed it. Now enjoy your retirement, because--
Maggie: Mr. Weston. What a pleasure.
Clyde: Mrs. Kiriakis, oh, my goodness, the pleasure is all mine.
Maggie: It was a very generous donation. Not many people understand the importance of community health.
Clyde: Well, those of us who grew up without much sure do. I was happy to help. Though I had hoped to keep it hush hush.
Kate: Clyde hired a lawyer to keep the donation quiet. He hadn't even told me about it.
Maggie: Well, we should let you two--
Kate: We're celebrating.
Clyde: We'd be happy to share a drink with you, Mrs. Kiriakis.
Kate: Oh, Maggie doesn't drink anymore.
Victor: I need to go.
Maggie: Of course. Good night, Kate.
Kate: Good night.
Clyde: It was real nice to meet you, Mrs. Kiriakis.
Maggie: Nice to meet you. Are you and I ready to go already?
Victor: You want to stay with those two?
Maggie: No, of course not. But I would like to say good night to Abigail.
Victor: All right.
Victor: I've seen enough.
Rafe: Yeah, I saw the way you were looking at Clyde. You weren't bonding.
Victor: I'll handle it. And him.
Rafe: Okay, hold--Victor, don't go doing anything that's gonna land you--
Victor: Good night, Rafe.
Chad: We need a new town. We need our own personal date town where we can go at night and not run into anyone who annoys us during the day.
Jordan: That sounds great. Craig's list?
Chad: I'm placing an ad now then.
Jordan: The night was already perfect when you showed up at the hospital with that dress. I felt like Cinderella.
Chad: From what I hear that ball was hell too.
Jordan: Yeah, she wound up barefoot with pumpkin seeds stuck in her hair.
Chad: Well, you're ahead of her on that front. Because you still look stunning.
Jordan: And you still look like a prince.
John: Damn. It's dead in here.
Marlena: Mm. Yeah. I wonder if that's what Sonny was upset about. You know, that phone call he had.
John: Maybe. But you know what? It seemed like he was out of it all night.
Marlena: Mm. He's been out of it for a while.
John: What are you thinking?
Marlena: I'm thinking there's a lot going on. With Sonny. With will. You know, they're so busy, their respective careers. I'm worried about them.
Paul: You really think me coming out publicly could help people?
Will: Yeah, of course it will. Think about it, Paul. When you were in high school, college, coming up, if there had been a pro baseball player that was gay and said it was okay, wouldn't that have helped you?
Paul: You're making a big assumption that it's "okay."
Will: Maybe it will be hard. Ask Jason Collins if it's worth it. Ask Michael Sam if it's worth it. Go online and watch Michael Sam accept the Arthur Ashe award for courage. That right there is a proud, out, openly gay athlete.
Paul: That's him.
Will: It could be more. It could be you. It's whatever you decide.
Paul: I'll do it.
Will: You're sure?
Paul: I am. But this is uh-- I'm wiped out. Can we speak again tomorrow? I need some time to think about what I'm gonna say.
Paul: This is it. I won't change my mind.
Will: Okay. Tomorrow.
Paul: I'm glad I met you, Will.
Will: Me too.
Abigail: Thank you so much for the drinks, Clyde, it was--
Ben: Yeah, you didn't have to do that, I really appreciate it.
Clyde: Really? You're throwing in the towel already?
Ben: I have early classes tomorrow.
Abigail: I have to work.
Clyde: Wow, that's not how I remember youth. So responsible!
Kate: Good for them.
Clyde: Hey, I'm proud of you son.
Ben: Good night, dad. I'll see you later.
Kate: Yes, absolutely.
Ben: Good night.
Abigail: Good night.
Kate: Good night, Abigail.
Clyde: My boy's never called me dad before. Ever.
Kate: That's nice. That's something.
Kate: I'm happy. I'm happy for you.
Abigail: Are you okay? You just haven't said much since we left, and-- what's up?
Ben: It just came out of my mouth. Like the most natural thing in the world.
Abigail: What did?
Abigail: Yeah, I noticed that.
Ben: I have never said that in my life.
Abigail: Even when you were little?
Ben: I got locked in a room for not saying it. And I still wouldn't.
Abigail: Wow. This is big.
Abigail: And good.
Ben: Abigail, what if I'm wrong? Jordan is so sure that he's playing us. What if Clyde hasn't changed at all?
Paul: Yeah, I have a few more weeks here of physical therapy in Salem.
Tori: Don't you need to get back to the city? They have trainers there, don't they?
Paul: Yeah, but it's nice to be out of the limelight. For now. And there are other things that I need to take care of here. So I was wondering, since I'm stuck, why don't you and grandpa come out for a visit?
Will: You okay?
Sonny: Now, I'm not okay.
Will: I'm sorry I'm late.
Sonny: It's not that. The club was deserted tonight and it's the first time since we opened that we actually lost money.
Will: But do you know why?
Sonny: Victor's club opened tonight.
Will: Your uncle opened a club? To compete with you?
Sonny: No, he wanted me to run it.
Will: Why aren't you?
Sonny: Because I'm not gonna take something from my uncle Vic I didn't earn.
Will: But you can borrow money from him?
Sonny: A loan. Not a handout.
Will: Well, I don't know if that really matters right now, Sonny, we're broke.
Sonny: We just don't have cash. That's all.
Will: What we have are bills and nothing to pay them with. Ever since--
Sonny: Say it. Since I blew our savings.
Abigail: But listen to me, Ben, if you... if you feel like there's a chance at having a relationship with your father, and that's something that you want, then you have to give that a chance.
Ben: The only thing that I do know, for sure, is that I am so lucky to have you.
Jordan: You have been so great with me. So patient. And I promise you I'm not gonna let anyone ruin this for me. For us.
Chad: Not even Clyde?
Jordan: Especially not Clyde.
Kate: I'm glad things are progressing with Ben.
Clyde: Yeah. But I'm not gonna get ahead of myself.
Kate: No. No. It's probably better not to expect things to go in a straight line. You know he'll pull back, too.
Clyde: But just to hear it once, you know? Dang.
Kate: I was so happy for you. How did the chat go with Victor?
Clyde: Well, we got a few things straight.
Kate: Yeah. I doubt that. I know the man. I haven't seen that much hatred in his eyes for years. He's looking at you the way he used to look at Stefano.
Clyde: Well, I'll take that as a compliment.
Kate: Take it any way you want to, but be careful. He may be older, but he's lethal.
Clyde: Listen, I appreciate your concern, but I can handle Victor Kiriakis.
Maggie: You haven't been this quiet in our entire marriage. What's up?
Victor: Oh, I'm just preoccupied.
Maggie: With Kate's new man? Come on, Victor, surely you know I could tell. I mean, are you jealous?
Victor: That's it. You got me. Jealous.
Maggie: It's not that funny, Victor. You and Kate, you were together once upon a time. You shared a child, Vic--
Victor: No, Peggy, I don't give a damn who Kate shacks up with.
Maggie: You don't like Mr. Weston. Why?
Victor: Gut instinct.
Maggie: He seems nice like a very nice man. He gave a very generous donation to the hospital. He obviously is trying to make Salem his home.
Victor: Yeah, well, he's trying too hard.
Tori: We can't come to Salem right now, Paul.
Paul: What is it grandpa? You said he was okay.
Tori: He is. It's just not a good time. Too busy.
Paul: What's keeping you so busy? Mom, I'd like to see you guys. I mean, it'd be great to talk face to face.
Tori: I cannot come to Salem. I'm sorry, Paul. It's just not possible. I love you, son. We'll speak soon.
Paul: Great. [Sighs] You guys can read about me coming out. Along with the rest of the world.
Will: I didn't mean--
Sonny: Yeah, you did. You blame me for blowing our money, and you're right.
Will: Sonny, it can't all be on you. We lived on your salary for a long time.
Sonny: I didn't have a problem with that.
Will: I did. And I can chip in now.
Sonny: You had. We had your L.A. money and I blew that too.
Will: Why are you doing this? Let it go.
Sonny: How can I let it go if you won't?
Will: I am not holding on to anything, I am looking ahead.
Sonny: Yeah, to a life where I take handouts from my Uncle Vic.
Will: What are you talking about. You run a successful club.
Sonny: I did. But I don't anymore, okay? I don't. Maybe you were right. Maybe I did get lucky with Club TBD.
Will: Sonny! Sonny, wait!
