Hope: Oh, my gosh.
Hope: Hi. I am so sorry. It look longer than expected.
Aiden: Oh, no problem.
Hope: No problem? You sure? Because when I was coming around the corner, it looked like you did have a problem.
Aiden: Uh, well... you know how we've been round and round about keeping our professional lives separate?
Hope: I do, yes.
Aiden: Well, I know I'm going to sound like a hypocrite here, but, um... I need some information... cop to lawyer.
Hope: Clyde Weston, right?
Sonny: The truth is, the things that have gone wrong for us, a lot of it was my fault, not yours.
Will: S-Sonny, no, that isn't true.
Sonny: Okay, let me explain. Of course, you're responsible for what you did. But I need to take responsibility for what I did too.
Will: Are you--are you talking about Paul?
Sonny: No, you... and everything I've done to you from the very beginning.
Serena: Look, Roman, I-I understand. Right now I'm holed up in my hotel room.
Roman: Not leaving town.
Serena: Not leaving town.
Roman: Serena, make sure you stick with that.
Serena: I know that you don't think much of me right now, but when I make a promise, I-- Roman? Roman? Ugh. [Sighs]
Victor: Listen, Daniel, I'm sorry I didn't get back to you before today. I know you left a slew of messages.
Daniel: Yeah, forget it. We're here now.
Victor: Yeah, I'm glad. So you two have really been through it the last couple of days, to say nothing of Eric and Nicole. Can I get you something?
Daniel: Yeah. Answers... about Xander.
Xander: Commissioner. So, uh, what's next for me? My understanding is that within 24 hours, the police--
Roman: Shut up! Just shut the hell up, you son of a bitch. You're not gonna get away with what you did to my son.
Xander: I guess that means I'm free to go.
Nicole: I'm almost ready, Daniel. You know, a girl needs a few more minutes to prepare before she--
Eric: We need to talk about what happened.
Nicole: Yeah, okay. Well, what I'd really like to concentrate on is, um... look, we went through a really scary time, and we're still alive, still ticking and kicking, and isn't that what matters most?
Eric: What about the fact that we almost made love?
Roman: Okay, cook, Kiriakis, whatever the hell your name is, here's the deal. We've got two victims that say you tried to kill them, and we have your alibi.
Xander: Which I assume you checked.
Abe: We did. And there are several people in Chicago who swear you were there all night.
Roman: And if they're lying, they'll go down with you.
Abe: We traced pings off cell towers showing that you used your phone when you were in Chicago.
Roman: Or somebody did.
Abe: And your credit card was swiped a couple times. So the upshot is the DA is not going forward at this time.
Xander: Thank you, commander carver.
Abe: You know, you're still a person of interest. We've got eyes on you. Don't leave town.
Xander: I wouldn't think of it. And, please, give your son and miss walker my sympathies.
Abe: Fella, if I were you, I wouldn't push my luck.
Victor: Brady filled me in on what my nephew did. All I can say is it's hard to fathom and absolutely unforgivable. I understand the police have him in custody.
Daniel: They do.
Victor: And he's been charged?
Brady: He must have been by now.
Daniel: I called the station, but they hadn't gotten back to me.
Victor: Well, still, you must be relieved. God knows I am. The man shouldn't be walking around free.
Daniel: Well, that's why we came to talk to you, because you're the one who freed him.
Nicole: What happened... what almost happened... well, it was--it was complicated, right? I mean, not-- I'm not saying it's not important. I'm--what am I saying? I'm-- when we were fighting for our lives, things were so overwhelming.
Eric: Yes, I know it's true.
Nicole: But now... I mean, thank God we're not in that position anymore. We can put that behind us and... you know, we don't have to worry about it anymore. We don't have to think about it.
Eric: [Scoffs] What are you trying to say? You want me to just forget about it? Nicole, we can't pretend we-- what we almost did never happened. I can't, and I won't do that. I will take beauty into my own hands...where it belongs.
Aiden: Why did you say Clyde Weston?
Hope: Because... [Sighs] Because he's been a problem for us before. Aiden, when you brought up the idea of keep things separate and then--
Aiden: You jumped right to Weston, like you had information on him. I thought you said you stopped investigating him.
Hope: I have.
Aiden: Look, if there's something that you know, I'm sure there's a--
Hope: Whoa, whoa. Try not to assume, okay?
Aiden: Then why is Weston the first person you thought of?
Hope: A little while ago, something fell into my lap about your client. I'm sorry. I reacted the wrong way.
Aiden: [Sighs] Okay, what fell in your lap?
Hope: Clyde Weston, your client.. had a meeting with Stefano DiMera.
Sonny: Will, we love each other.
Sonny: We have a lot in common, but at the same time, we're very different.
Will: Well... okay.
Sonny: I've known who I am for a long time. I figured out who I was and how I felt. It's been a long time since I came out. I've been able to live in the open. I've traveled the world, had relationships.
Will: You mean-- you mean Paul?
Sonny: No, not just pa-- that's what I'm trying to say. It was very hard for you to come out, sometimes overwhelming.
Will: But, Sonny, I had you. You were always there for me.
Sonny: And that's what I'm talking about. Anytime it was rough for you, you came to me for help.
Will: And you were there.
Sonny: Yes, I tried to be, but I also took advantage of you.
Victor: You're not talking about the charges Alexandros was facing in Scotland?
Brady: Murder charges.
Daniel: You helped him get it knocked down to simple misdemeanor.
Victor: I wish to hell I hadn't. Listen, you two didn't come here today thinking I had something to hide, did you?
Daniel: Do you?
Victor: Of course not. He was my nephew. He was a screwed-up kid. I just thought at the time that he needed a break.
Daniel: So you had your lawyer file an appeal, promise he'd leave the country.
Victor: You take care of family, Daniel... especially when they're young. If I'd known how he was going to turn out, I'd have let him rot.
Brady: Granddad, whenever we talked about Xander, you were always very vague.
Victor: I didn't think the details were important. Obviously, I was wrong.
Daniel: I think it would be good to know that he was charged back then with first-degree murder.
Victor: You know what's baffling? Is that ever since then, he's been very good at following orders. I mean, when you two told me he was up to no good, I let him have it. I told him to leave Salem.
Brady: Let me guess... he promised that he would, right?
Victor: Well, obviously, he lied to me.
Brady: Well, he's in custody now. Just don't try to get your lawyers to help out this time, all right?
Victor: That bastard's on his own.
Nicole: Eric, we can talk. Of course... of course we can talk, and I just--I want you to know, please, that what you said... I was so happy, so grateful. I mean, just knowing that everything I did to hurt you, all the lies and all the horrible things you said about me and how-- listen... and how you--how you felt about me, how you thought about me... the idea that all of that was gone...
Eric: I punished you. I punished you for way too long. I needed you to know that I was wrong. Nicole, I meant every word I said to you right before--
Nicole: I know, I know, before... before we almost died... when it was just... just us... and all those feelings... they were so raw and so... and then we almost... okay, but now, I mean, this--this time, this right-- Eric, the thing is... look, we went through--through a horrible time and just knowing that you cared, that's-- that's what kept me going. But I love Daniel. I do. I... I want to be with Daniel, and I-I thought... I thought you already knew that.
Eric: I-I just thought we needed to talk it out.
Nicole: And we are, I'm glad we are. I'm glad that you pushed this... because it's given me a chance to... to tell you how much you mean to me... even if I still love Daniel more than I ever have. Eric, I hope you understand. You understand, right?
Aiden: You know what? I don't want to know anything more about what fell in your lap.
Hope: Then you're in luck. That's all I've got.
Aiden: Okay, well, now maybe you can call off whoever you have following my client.
Hope: Aiden, I am not having him followed.
Hope: But DiMera, on the other hand, yes, he is always on our radar.
Hope: Okay, hold on a second. What? You think I'm lying? You think I said I shut down the investigation when I didn't? Hey... we can either talk about this, or we can't.
Aiden: We can't.
Hope: Okay, fine. Then I consider it dropped. What should we have?
Aiden: You know what? This was a bad idea.
Hope: Wait a minute. Ah, ah! Wait a second. No, no, no. You started off saying you wanted information, cop to lawyer, right? You don't get to walk away until you tell me what the heck is going on here.
Will: Sonny, where the hell are you getting this stuff?
Sonny: No, okay--
Will: You never took advantage of me.
Sonny: Hang on, okay? Hang on. That didn't come out right. But I did make a mistake. And here's what I did wrong. I didn't know at the time, but, frankly, I should have been more responsible. We started this up, and I let it fall into a relationship. And I'll admit--it was incredible that I was the first man--the only man that you've ever been with.
Will: Sonny, I love you. You're the only man I've ever loved.
Sonny: But you slept with Paul. And you slept with that guy in Los Angeles. I'm not mad at you. I'm not blaming you, but something like that is not ndom. It means something that you slept with two other guys. It means that you weren't ready to get married.
[Knock on door]
Serena: You're out.
Xander: Free as a bird. See, I was in Chicago when Eric and Nicole were getting all toasty. Lots of people saw me and talked to me. I'm solid. But that doesn't mean I don't have a problem.
Serena: Meaning me, I guess.
Xander: Saw that statement you gave to the police.
Serena: How did you see my statement?
Xander: In it, you said that I was dangerous... that I had a scary past, that maybe I had it in for Nicole and Eric. Luckily for you, you didn't get more specific than that.
Serena: You mean lucky for you.
Xander: When the cops come sniffing around again, Serena, and they will... stick to facts. Skip whatever you think I might have been up to. Then you and I'll be just fine.
Serena: Is that a promise? Am I supposed to just forget about what you did to Eric? Am I supposed to forget that you tried to kill the man that I love?
Xander: [Chuckles] Sorry. Yeah. The man you love-- I almost forgot. That's the other thing we have to discuss. I need to make something absolutely clear to you about Eric.
Eric: Nicole, all I want is for you to be happy. I know it's strange... you know, after all this time to finally... have the chance to be open and honest with each other.
Nicole: I know.
Eric: So how do you want to tell Daniel about what happened? I mean, it's going to hurt him pretty badly.
Nicole: Well, I, uh-- I almost told him. But I wasn't thinking straight. I had... cobwebs in my head. And then I started to see things more clearly. And I thought to myself, "why... why would we tell him what we almost did? Why would we hurt him?" I know that's not what we both want, right? Eric... let's keep this between us.
Eric: You mean lie to him?
Nicole: Well, it's not lying if--
Eric: You mean you don't want to tell Daniel something that important?
Nicole: But you're not understanding--
Eric: Nicole, I'm not gonna do that. I can't. All the feelings that I've had... back when we were together... they came rushing back to me. And I know you had the same feelings too.
Nicole: Well, I--
Eric: Nicole, that was a very important moment for us. We almost--
Nicole: We didn't, though. We didn't.
Eric: Nicole, I'm not--
Nicole: No, Eric, we didn't! And now we have to ask ourselves, what is the right thing to do? Do we really want to hurt someone that we both love... and tell him something that we didn't do? The answer is very clear to me-- don't say anything... not to Daniel, not to anyone.
Eric: Can you live with that? Can you take the time that we had together... what we were feeling... and just put it in a box... like it was meaningless to you?
Daniel: I think someone's ready to ditch this place.
Brady: Hey, how about two people? How's it going?
Aiden: [Sighs] I, um... I have this case. Uh, there seems to be a lot of evidence against my client, but most of it came from a jailhouse snitch.
Aiden: Yeah, this is a guy that you put behind bars, so I need anything I can get on the guy.
Hope: To discredit him.
Aiden: Which means... I need you.
Will: Sonny, that is so bogus. Don't say things like that. It's not right.
Sonny: Will, it's okay.
Will: No, no, it's not okay, Sonny, and it's not true. I wanted to marry you. I want to stay married to you forever.
Sonny: That's what I wanted too. But I didn't take into account what you needed... before we got engaged, before we walked down the aisle, frankly, what you need now.
Will: I don't want to listen to this.
Sonny: What do you want to do, will--sweep everything underneath the rug, never face the truth? We're gonna end up hating each other.
Will: I could never hate you.
Sonny: You could. And you will if we don't face these problems, if we don't solve these problems.
Will: That's what we're doing, Sonny. We are facing this. We will solve whatever. Forget Myers. You never liked that guy. From now on, you pick the therapist. How about that?
Sonny: I want to understand what's going on today. I don't want to push this into some future therapy session.
Will: I'm not trying to avoid what you're saying, Sonny. I'm not.
Sonny: Will, you know what happened when I found out that you slept with that guy in la? The first thing I wanted to do was find Paul and sleep with him.
Xander: True love is a wonderful thing. It makes life worth living.
Xander: It also makes people do some really stupid things... like when you told Eric about the diamonds.
Serena: I had--
Xander: Shut up and listen. I realize that you thought you were protecting poor Eric the innocent. But you weren't, were you? It's not smart, Serena. Now Daniel knows, Nicole knows, the police know. It's gonna make some of my business dealings much more difficult.
Serena: You can't--
Xander: I'm not going to tell you to shut up again! Here's the good news. There's no proof. It's my word against your lies. All the emails have been wiped clean. That thing doesn't look like it's worth anything anymore. In fact, the only thing that's left is that fat stack of cash sitting in your account. But you signed those contracts to write articles for my pharma company, so that covers that. [Inhales sharply] In fact, the only thing that isn't covered is your big mouth.
Serena: I won't say anything.
Xander: Oh, I really hope you mean that. It seemed to come out awfully fast, didn't it? So I'll make you this promise. If anything about my business ventures makes it from your mouth into a police file, I'll know about it. And I'll go after Eric... not you, him.
Serena: Please don't...
Xander: I know that you are just dying to redeem yourself in his priestly eyes. But your first priority, first and foremost, should be to make sure there's still an Eric for you to redeem yourself to. Okay? I hope I haven't been... [Sighs] Vague.
Daniel: I went by the front desk, and I was told that Kayla signed some release forms.
Brady: You are finally good to go.
Nicole: We were just talking about what happened and how lucky we are to be alive.
Brady: Going over it in your mind has to be upsetting. I mean, the thoughts and the feelings and the fears that you had...
Eric: I'm glad you're all good, Nicole. Thanks again for everything, guys. I'm gonna go get some fresh air. So, if you'll excuse me....
Brady: Is he okay?
Nicole: Like I said, we shared a lot. You know, it's hard to deal with.
Daniel: Yeah, no kidding.
Brady: Uh, I'm gonna catch up with him, see if I can talk to him a little bit.
Nicole: I think he's pretty talked out.
Brady: Just in case.
Brady: See ya.
Daniel: You still care about Eric a lot. I see it in your eyes.
Nicole: Yeah. Okay, well, I mean, I'm ready to go, if you...
Daniel: Wait. Wait, wait, wait. You know, I've been thinking.
Daniel: It's great that you're getting out of here. But why go home and be alone? Why not come to my place?
Nicole: Just for tonight?
Daniel: I was thinking... for good.
Hope: Martin O'Leary.
Hope: [Scoffs] Yeah, I remember him. I forgot what we finally charged him with, but, uh, he was a real con artist. Talked a blue streak, definitely willing to say anything he thought might help his case.
Aiden: Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Hmm.
Hope: I'll text you. I know how much you hated doing this, but, really, I am happy to do it. And by the way, Mr. Jennings, you're not a hypocrite.
Aiden: What? What's so funny?
Hope: You may not be a hypocrite, but once you get what you want, you know how to flip the romance switch. That is for sure.
Aiden: Oh. You see right through me.
Hope: Yeah, I'm a cop...
Aiden: You are a cop.
Hope: What'd you expect?
Aiden: You are a cop, but you are so much more than that to me. You are, really. So are you ready for the, uh--the holiday?
Hope: Are you kidding? I can't wait.
Aiden: Yeah, well, chase-- he's super psyched for it.
Hope: Yes, Ciara too. She's so excited.
Aiden: That's great. What?
Hope: You've made such a difference in her life. I hope you know that. Something was missing for both of us.
Aiden: Without a dad...
Hope: And then you came along... and the sun came out.
Will: Oh, my God. All this time you just wanted an excuse to sleep with Paul again, and I gave it to you...
Will: [Stammers] Because of what I did. I knew you still loved him. I knew--
Sonny: Will, will, will, listen to me. I was hurt... so I wanted to hurt you back. This isn't easy to admit, but it's true.
Will: So... you did... hurt me. You slept with Paul.
Sonny: No, no, I did not. That would be totally unfair, to him and us. But the thing is... I started thinking. How did we get to where we are right now? Arianna was ten months old when we got married.
Will: We were in love.
Sonny: Because I wanted to get married. It was my agenda. I had already asked Paul. I was ready.
Will: So was I.
Sonny: You weren't. You were running around like crazy trying to deal. Everything was so new to you.
Will: Sonny, no, don't do that to me. I knew who I was. I was fine, and I knew what I wanted.
Sonny: When you found out that you were gay, you jumped into a committed relationship. Now, be honest with me. Wasn't it somewhat comforting to latch on to me... to feel somewhat normal?
Nicole: Um... Daniel, I...
Daniel: Okay, yeah, I know it sounds kind of impulsive. But it's not. I've been thinking about this for quite a while. And, yes, I'm the one always saying, "let's go slow." And, yes, I have some trust issues. But it hit me last night... that if I hadn't always been like that, then maybe this nightmare that you went through never would have happened.
Nicole: Daniel, you can't blame yourself.
Daniel: No, no, no, that's not what I'm saying. I mean, just running all over hell, trying to get to you in time and fighting to get to you... alive... it just suddenly hit me like a bell. I don't want you anywhere... than right by my side.
Nicole: Baby, that is so sweet.
Daniel: Life's too short. It's too short. Whatever time we got, we got to live, and we got to live it.
Daniel: Right? I was even thinking-- I've always been so careful with parker, making sure that he doesn't get too close to anybody... in case things didn't work out, but... my little man... he loves you to death.
Nicole: I love him.
Daniel: Please just say... yes. One word, just one word--yes.
Nicole: [Inhales deeply] Oh. I love you.
Brady: Eric. You seemed a little off back at the hospital. Hey, listen... I know that Xander put you guys through hell, locking you up in that room, but... you survived. Y-you're fine. I mean, everything's gonna get better.
Eric: Of course.
Brady: Is there anything you want to talk about? Sometimes that helps. [Chuckles] Maybe just... do you want to talk about what really went on in that room, when you two were locked in there together?
Will: That's enough, Sonny. Seriously, you may think that you have everything analyzed, but you're wrong. You're just wrong.
Sonny: Let's talk about California.
Will: What about it?
Sonny: That job was very appealing for you... to take off, get out of here. I saw the excitement in your eyes.
Will: No, Sonny, my family-- my family needed me. I was there to support them.
Sonny: It opened the door for you, will, to freedom, a chance to explore the new you.
Will: It was a job, Sonny. That's it. Writing a screenplay--it was the first time I'd done something like that. It paid like crazy.
Sonny: Do you remember what you said to me before you left? You said that our life was boring.
Will: Oh, hey, no, Sonny, no, I didn't mean that. I was--I was feeling defensive.
Sonny: Look, I-I understand. You didn't say it to be mean. But if I hadn't traveled the world... if I hadn't done the things that I did, I might've thought being here was boring too. You never got a chance to do all that before we got married.
Will: Sonny, let's do that. Let's have an adventure. T can watch the club. We'll do whatever you want... anything.
Sonny: That's not the answer.
Nicole: Ha. Oh!
Nicole: Shoot. I... left my discharge papers on the table.
Daniel: Oh, boy. Okay, I'll be by the elevator.
Roman: Hey, Daniel. Is Eric still here?
Daniel: Uh, he just took off.
Roman: Ah, damn it. I've been trying to call him. His phone must be off.
Daniel: Well, he went out to get some air. What, uh--what's going on?
Roman: I need to tell him something. I also need to warn you and Nicole.
Roman: Xander's out.
Victor: I want this to happen yesterday. There is to be absolutely no connection, no paper trail between Alexandros and me. Good. Well, double-check and get back to me.
[Cell phone ringing]
Xander: Uncle Victor.
Victor: You better be on a burner cell.
Xander: I am. It'll be destroyed when we're finished. I just wanted you to know that I am out of police custody. They essentially have no case.
Victor: Well, stay away from me until you're absolutely sure they have nothing to go on.
Xander: Yes, sir.
Victor: Oh, and don't call me. I'll call you.
Xander: I understand, uncle.
Victor: Like hell you do. If you understood, you wouldn't be in the mess you're in. Trust me, I don't give a damn about you, but I do about myself. I don't want my wife or Daniel or Brady or anybody knowing that we're connected. Is that clear?
Xander: Yes, sir.
Victor: If any one of them finds out, you don't want to think about what's going to happen.
Brady: You know you can tell me anything, right?
Eric: I always think of myself when it comes time to make a choice. I always think I know which way to go. Right now I'm... I've never been so confused. [Sighs]
Brady: You mean because of Xander? You're not gonna refuse to testify, are you?
Eric: No, no, I'm going to testify. In fact, in a way, I just... I just feel so strange about what happened last night.
Brady: Eric, you knew the guy back in Africa. Obviously, he's good at fooling people. You're not responsible for what went down.
Eric: Brady, I know that you're trying to help me right now, but... [Sighs] All right, I'm just so exhausted. I just... I think the best thing for me to do is be alone... so I can think.
Brady: Okay. All right, but just so you know, I have a... I have a son that I want to show you. So you might want to come by the house. He's a fantastic reminder that life is really good. Talk to you soon.
Daniel: Why in the hell would the DA say she has no case?
Roman: His alibi's rock-solid. We're still trying to break it.
Daniel: What about Nicole's word, Eric's word? What, that means nothing?
Roman: Of course it does, Daniel, but you know we need more than that, and like I said, we're working on it.
[Cell phone ringing]
Roman: All right, I got to get back to the station. You tell Eric what I said. Also tell him I'm doing everything I can.
Daniel: Damn it.
Nicole: Daniel, hey. Is something wrong?
Aiden: All right, sorry, but I just--I... I'm having a little trouble getting that little fight we had out of my head. I have to ask, is Clyde Weston always going to be an issue for us--
Hope: Bah-bah-bah! Shh. Tell you what.
Hope: Let's agree right now to forget all about him, okay? Deal?
Aiden: Been there, done that. Okay, don't you remember coming to my office, telling me that it's okay if I represent him? I don't know--maybe that was just some word game with you.
Will: Then what is the answer... for us?
Sonny: You said before that maybe we should try a new couples' therapist. I think it's a good idea.
Sonny: But I also think you should try your own therapist... alone... someone to talk to, get advice from, without having to worry... what I'm hearing or what I'm saying.
Will: [Sighs] That's, um... that's huge.
Sonny: Will... I wouldn't trade what we've had for anything. But these last six months... we both know we can't go on like that, right? We got to take every day and use it... figure out where we're going. And I think we can get through it... no matter what.
Will: [Sighs] [Chuckles]
Serena: I've been looking for you. I am... I'm so sorry.
Eric: I don't want to hear how sorry you are... or more excuses or how much you love me!
Serena: I'm not... I'm not talking about that. I'm talking about Xander.
Daniel: Uh, listen, I just got some news, but not here, okay? Let's just go to my place and talk in private. I think someone is itching to get out of here.
Dr. Jonas, Dr. Rich needs you to look at a patient's arm. He asked if you'd hurry? The man's agitated.
Daniel: Okay, okay, uh, this will be quick, all right? Do not go away.
Nicole: Okay, I won't. Right here. [Chuckles]
