John: Roman told you that I was leaving Salem pd to join the ISA?
Marlena: I guess he thought you told me that already. So, it's true, hmm?
John: I'm not gonna lie to you.
Marlena: You mean you're not going to lie to me anymore.
John: I was gonna tell you, doc, I was just waiting for the right time and place.
Marlena: What, so you weren't sure that I would support you in this?
John: Was I wrong?
JJ: You want to know if I would go undercover with the DEA...for you? Paige, that's the only reason why I'm doing it.
Clyde: I ordered a single malt double neat.
Rafe: Yeah, I heard you.
Clyde: You plan on pouring it?
Clyde: So my money's not good enough all of a sudden?
Rafe: Well, thing is Weston, I'm all out of disinfectant, so why don't you just do us both a favor and get the hell out of here?
Clyde: You know, it almost sounds like you're angling for a fight there. Don't imagine your employer would cotton to that.
Rafe: You know what, Weston? I've been cordial to you out of respect for Victor, but I don't need this dead-end job anymore. See, I'm planning on going back to what I do best. Being a cop.
Clyde: Well, if that's what you do best, then we're all in trouble.
Rafe: Nah, you're the one who's in trouble.
Hope: Stop, stay, just lay--
Aiden: No, no, I'm okay.
Hope: What are you doing?
Aiden: I'm okay, I'm okay, baby, I'm okay.
Hope: Tell me what happened.
Aiden: [Sighs] I...I got mugged.
Aiden: Mm-hmm. Some guy of the street. Probably A... looking for cash for his next fix or something and he, uh... got my wallet, took my watch and...
Hope: My God.
Aiden: No, I gave as good I got, you know, but he, um...
Hope: Easy, easy, easy.
Aiden: Took off before I could finish the job.
Hope: What'd he look like?
Aiden: I don't know. He was wearing a mask.
Hope: Calling the station right now.
Aiden: No. Don't do that.
Clyde: Maybe it's time we had a little chat, Rafe. Get it all out there, man to man.
Rafe: Man to what?
Clyde: Yeah, I could have chosen my words more carefully, I guess.
Clyde: I know how you feel about me. You got no proof I've done anything wrong, but you got a bad feeling about me down in your gut. You just don't know why. I'll tell you why. You're jealous.
Hope: I don't even know why you're trying to wa--
Aiden: No, no, no.
Hope: Why don't you want me to call the station?
Aiden: It would be a waste of the officers' valuable time. The guy is long gone. I can't id him. He was wearing gloves. There's no prints.
Hope: So you just want to what, forget this happened? You're hurt.
Aiden: Bruises will heal, you know? I never liked that watch anyway. So alls well that ends well, right?
Hope: You can't be serious. I mean...
Aiden: Listen to me. The whole police force doesn't need to know that we were going to have a rendezvous here at the Salem inn.
Hope: I don't care who knows we're together. I'm calling the station.
Aiden: Hope, please! If it gets out that some random thug beat me up, there goes my reputation as the toughest lawyer in town.
Hope: Yeah, well your rep?
Hope: It'll survive, okay? But what about mine? John finds out I didn't report this, I'll be on meter duty all year. For the record, Mr. Jennings. I'm very good at what I do.
Aiden: I know you are.
Hope: But don't give up. We're getting the bad guy. I'm getting the bad guy.
Paige: Who asked you to do this? I mean, it isn't your job. Why would you ever think that I would want you to--
JJ: An agent asked me, Paige.
Paige: Oh. 'Cause you used to do exactly what Kyle does?
JJ: Because I gave it up. But when I saw you with him, I couldn't say no. I wasn't gonna tell you ever. I was just gonna take care of it and get the guy.
Paige: For me?
JJ: You think that you know him and you think that you can handle it and that you can turn him into this upstanding citizen and he'll leave the life behind, but that's not going to happen.
Paige: How do you know?
JJ: Because he is seriously bad.
Paige: Oh, as bad as you?
JJ: Maybe you're just with him because you know that it drives me insane.
Paige: Oh, stop.
JJ: Or maybe you actually do like him and you think that you can save him. But the DEA doesn't go after low-level dealers, Paige. He couldn't quit the life even if he wanted to. The only way he leaves is in handcuffs or a coffin.
JJ: And if you're with him, I don't even want to think about that. He is going to hurt you so much worse than I ever did.
Paige: Like that's even possible. You know what, if you're so worried that he's going to hurt me, maybe you shouldn't have told him that I outed him to your mom.
JJ: I just wanted him to leave you the hell alone.
Paige: I want you to leave me alone, okay? You have no right butting into my life this way.
JJ: I'm not butting into your life, but when I see you with that guy, I know what I have to do. And that's what happens when you love someone. And I do love you Paige. I never, ever stopped.
Marlena: Haven't we been through this before? Do you remember how this turned out?
John: I was gonna tell you, doc. It's just that we had been working so hard to get back on track, I didn't want to add another complication right now.
Marlena: Then why do it? Why go back to the ISA?
John: Because I have to.
Marlena: See, I don't know what that means.
John: Everything I know about who I am starts from the day that I met you. First half of my life might be a blank slate, but I know that I am Brady and bill's father and I know that I am the spy who loves you. The ISA is more than a job, doc. It is part of my identity. It's my calling, like you were called to be a doctor.
Marlena: No, wait a minute.
John: I know you think it's dangerous, but what about your job?
Marlena: No. You chase bad guys around the globe. I see patients in my office.
John: The name Stella Lombard ring a bell?
Marlena: [Exhales] Being kidnapped by one sociopath does not a job risk make.
John: Come on, doc. I gave it the good college try. I sat behind a desk. I ran basic black. That wasn't me. I need to feel like I'm making a difference. Like I'm part of the good guys.
Marlena: You are. You always have been. And you are with the Salem pd.
John: Yeah, I know, and I though that would be enough, but you know what? There's something missing. I love you. So a part of me is saying, "make her happy." "Walk away." "Just put her first and do what she wants."
Marlena: In a relationship, both people have to get what they want.
John: Yes, and I want this to work for us, doc. I want this with all my heart.
Marlena: I do, too.
John: But if I pass on this opportunity... what if this feeling doesn't go away? What if, over time, I start to resent you for what I passed up? I not saying it will. I just don't know if I'd be able to stop it.
[Cell phone ringing]
John: It's the station, sorry.
John: John Black. On my way.
Marlena: What is it?
John: Hope called in a robbery. Aiden Jennings was attacked.
Marlena: Let's go.
Hope: Take pictures and get an inventory of everything that's missing. But first, let's get a detailed statement from Mr. Jennings. Aiden, what, why aren't you sitting down?
Aiden: It looks a lot worse than it is, I'm fine, hope. I'm fine.
Hope: Tell officer lee what happened, okay, please? From the beginning.
Aiden: There was knock on the door. I thought it was you. Opened the door. He punched me in the face and forced his way in.
Officer lee: You never saw the assailant's face?
Hope: What happened next?
Aiden: Uh... he started looking for cash, started trashing the room. I... fought him off the best I could, but you know, I... tried ripping off the mask. I couldn't do it, and he took off. Managed to get a couple things.
Hope: And how tall was he?
Aiden: Average height. Average build. I...just average, you know? It happened so fast.
Officer lee: Any physical features that stand out?
Aiden: No. Wish I could give you more, but, uh...that's all I got.
Clyde: Tell me what's funny.
Rafe: No, no, no, you know, I'm gonna tell Victor that if he ever needs someone to do stand-up, that he should give you a call.
Rafe: Yeah. So, why would I be jealous of you?
Clyde: Well, let's see. I call my own shots.
Clyde: You pour shots. You go from FBI agent to police detective to shift manager. Plunging out the toilets whenever they overflow. And by the way, I do understand that the arrest rate has gone way up since you left the force.
Rafe: You know, incidentally, so has the crime rate.
Clyde: So, I should be shaking in my boots since you maybe gonna become a detective again, huh? Well, let me tell you, I'm a major donor to a hospital charity. My businesses are booming. I got a great relationship with my son, who's about to marry this beautiful woman, and you, what is it you got going for you again?
Rafe: Well, at least I can go home and sleep at night knowing that I'm a decent person and I put in a hard day's work.
Clyde: Well, I sleep like a bay, Rafe. Right next to your ex, which I'm sure you don't need reminding. You see, that's the thing. You had something solid and you lost it, and you just can't get it back again. I mean, that would bother any real man. But that's the difference between you and me, you see? I'm exactly where I want to be.
Paige: You love me? After everything you... [Sniffs] Why are you telling me this? Do you really think I could ever forget what you did to me?
JJ: No. Of course not. But you wanted me to explain it, and I'm just trying to make you understand, not what I'm trying to do, but what you are getting yourself into. If you could only see the stuff that the DEA has showed me about Kyle.
Paige: But of course, you can't tell me.
JJ: You can read about it in the paper. An old buyer of his ended up in ICU 'cause he nearly got beat to death after he tried to stiff Kyle. You saw how much cash he had in that safe. Do you know what he also keeps in one of his desk drawers? His gun. I'm not saying that he would ever try to hurt you, but what if you're with him sometime when he decides that he needs to use it? And what if you get caught in a crossfire?
Paige: JJ, it's...
JJ: Damn it, Paige, it is killing me to see you with this guy. Just promise me, will you please promise me, that you will stay away from him.
Paige: Why? So that you can have me back?
Rafe: You're like the U.S. Congress, Weston. All talk, no action.
Clyde: Oh, I get plenty of action, Rafe. How about you?
Rafe: Uh-huh. Yeah, you made a sizable donation to a hospital, you walk round this place like you're some damn hero. You know, here in Salem, people know the real deal. You ain't it.
Clyde: It's not you either.
Clyde: You just keep telling yourself how happy you are with you life. You can tell yourself that enough, you might even start to believe it.
Hope: Check in with Chen downstairs, okay? Keep me informed.
Hope: Oh, Marlena, what are you doing here?
John: Well, watch commander called me. What about you two?
Hope: Trying to have a romantic evening.
Marlena: What happened?
Hope: I left to bring Caroline her reading glasses--
John: Someone call the EMT?
Hope: No, Aiden insisted he's okay. I'd feel a lot better if you looked at him, though.
Marlena: I will, of course I will.
Aiden: It's not necessary.
Marlena: Aiden, oh, honey, my gosh. Please.
Marlena: Follow my finger.
Aiden: All right.
Marlena: Were you unconscious at any point?
Aiden: No, no, no. I can move all my limbs and I'm not seeing double-vision and it's 2015, I believe, so does that cover everything, or...?
Marlena: I think it does.
John: Is he okay?
Marlena: Well, uh, I think so, his wounds seem very superficial. I don't think that he has a concussion, um... wow, it just must have been so upsetting. I want to get a complete neuro-exam on him just to be sure.
Hope: Yeah, of course.
Marlena: And I am shocked a thing like this could happen here.
John: So am I. The other manager's gonna get us security camera footage. We've got officers going door to door. Somebody's gotta see something. What I want to do is bring forensics in right away.
Aiden: Will you people just stop and get out? (Music plays)
Paige: As if I'd ever take you back.
JJ: I didn't say that.
Paige: You didn't have to. You keep trying to make this about Kyle, but it's obviously about us.
JJ: No, it's not about us.
Paige: You just said the whole reason you're doing this is because of me. Because you still love me. And because you think I can't take care of myself.
JJ: That's not it.
Paige: Yes, it is. But guess what? I don't need you. I don't need my mother. I learned the hardest way possible that the only person that I can count on is me. I am finally running my own life and I'm getting better at it every day, and do you know how that feels? It feels great. And now all I need is for you to just get out of my way.
JJ: Paige, I know I broke your heart. It doesn't mean you can turn off your feelings. Earlier, when I broke into Kyle's safe, you helped me get out of there. You didn't have to do that. But you did. Why? It's because you cared. 'Cause you still have feelings for me, no matter what you say.
Rafe: Yeah. Just keep giving me ammunition to go after you.
Clyde: You know, actually, I can't wait till you become a detective again. New manager comes in here, I might finally get a drink.
Rafe: Well, not if you're in jail.
Clyde: Now you said I was all talk. I got a lot of friends in this town, Rafe, including your boss.
Rafe: Yeah, Victor's not your friend.
Clyde: Then why does he comp my drinks? Couldn't be 'cause he's scared of little old me, could it? See, that's the thing. Even the great Victor Kiriakis has got nothing on me. So if you and your friend hope wanna go get me, have it man. Waste your time. You got plenty of it. But there's no evidence out there, so you're not gonna find it.
Aiden: [Sighs] I'm sorry about that. It's just my head is pounding.
Hope: No, I bet it is. You need to rest. He needs some rest.
John: This is a crime scene now.
Hope: We both know forensics isn't gonna find anything more in this room. Our best bets probably an eyewitness, if there is one.
John: Yeah, I agree with that, but still--
Aiden: The truth is, I'm just embarrassed about the whole thing and I...
Marlena: Why? You were a victim.
Aiden: I don't like to be a victim.
John: Nobody does.
Aiden: I don't want look like I'm getting special treatment, that's all.
John: Okay, fair enough.
Marlena: I think you should be seen at the hospital.
Aiden: I'm fine, really, I am.
Hope: Okay, all right. Tough guy. He's pretty stubborn sometimes.
Aiden: Which is why we are a perfect match.
Hope: Thanks for coming over. I got it from here, okay?
John: Okay, we'll get out of your hair.
Marlena: Yeah, now look, you take good care of yourself.
John: I'm gonna check the video camera surveillance on the way out. Don't worry, we'll get this guy.
Hope: Good night.
Aiden: No doubt you will. Thanks for coming by. Sorry if I was rude, I...
Hope: No, no, you've been through a lot tonight. It's completely understandable. I understand. I'm sure they understand, as well. I bet you're pretty tired of talking about what happened tonight, huh, Jennings?
Hope: Careful, careful, don't--don't move.
Aiden: How did you know? Besides, there's really not much left to say about it.
Hope: A text message from you earlier. Only a portion of it came through. What did you want to tell me?
Clyde: Yeah, go ahead and arrest me, big guy. Bartender without a license.
Rafe: Oh, I will arrest you. But when I do, it won't be for a misdemeanor.
Clyde: You don't even have a clue as to what you think I did. You just don't like the way I look, Rafe. You know what that's called? Profiling. You got something against people with southern persuasion?
Rafe: No. I got something against people of the criminal persuasion. And yeah, you're right, I may not have a smoking gun yet, but you know what Shakespeare says about pride. Oh, wait, I'm sorry, of course you don't. "He that is proud eats up himself."
Clyde: Yeah, well, if you've got the hubris--you can look that word up, Rafe-- to think that you can make anything stick against me, you get ready to eat your heart out.
Aiden: Um... my text, right, um, it was about Clyde.
Hope: Wait, you got upset earlier when I wanted to talk about Clyde. You said it violated attorney/client privilege, even though he's no longer--
Aiden: My client.
Aiden: Yeah. I dropped Clyde because I learned some potentially unsettling information. But I had no proof, so I hired an investigator to look into it. And that file that you saw on my desk, that was from him.
Hope: You could be disbarred if Clyde found out.
Aiden: I know. But I did it because I love you. You've been so driven to get something on this guy. If you're gonna put yourself in some terrible danger, I had to know.
Hope: You're the sweetest. But once you've been up against Stefano DiMera, Clyde Weston is... [Blows air] Nothing.
Aiden: [Chuckles] Don't make me laugh.
Aiden: But I do know that even more now.
Hope: You do, really?
Aiden: He's clean. I was shocked, too. I know.
Hope: But how can you be sure?
Aiden: [Sighs] Turns out there's an old business competitor. He's got a grudge against Clyde in Missouri. And he's been badmouthing him for years to anyone who would listen, so there's no truth behind the rumors. Told my investigator, the Salem pd, the FBI that came up empty--
Hope: So, just um... are you gonna represent Clyde again? Are you thinking about that?
Aiden: No. No, I mean, too difficult to explain all that, so I don't really like him anyway and happy with the status quo. [Laughs softly]
Hope: Wow, I just, I mean, you spent your own money to hire a personal investigator.
Aiden: I did it for you. Besides my son, you're all that matters to me. I can rest easy. You are safe. Well, safe as cop can be.
Hope: I'm really sorry. I know you didn't want to talk about this.
Aiden: How'd you know? [Chuckles] Stop making me laugh. Well, there's really not much left to say about it.
Hope: I wish I had been here. I would have taken care of that guy, believe me.
Aiden: Mmm... [Laughs softly] Oh...
Hope: Did I hurt you?
Aiden: Uh, no, no. No, you didn't. Come here.
Hope: Oh, God. Thank God you're okay. You haven't been in my life very long... but I can't imagine it without you. I really can't. No, no, don't--don't move. Don't move.
John: Security cameras were malfunctioning--you're sure about that? No, it just seems pretty convenient. So I'll tell you what. Why don't you check those cameras out, see if they might have been tampered with. Then call me back.
Marlena: Wow. What a shame.
John: There's just something really off about all this.
Marlena: And I know you'll be up half the night worrying about it. You know, Roman tells me that all the fellows at the police station are thrilled to have you back. It makes me wonder why that's not enough for you.
John: Wish I knew.
Marlena: Well, if it's about the travel, I could arrange some exotic trips for us. And, uh, if it's... something more than that... maybe it's the intrigue of the adventure, you think?
John: Do you think I'm idealizing what this job is about?
Marlena: Only you can answer that. Look, I know this kind of opportunity does not come along every day. I know it's nice to be wanted. I want you here. But only if that's what you want.
John: Doc, I wanna be here, it's just...
Marlena: I know. I know we're taking this slowly so that we get it right. Look, I would never ask you to make a compromise that you weren't prepared to make. But after all we've been through... I don't want to go through losing you again.
Paige: I was just trying to save you, because that's the kind of person that I am. But you just decide that it has to be because I still love you? Get over yourself!
JJ: You took a big risk to help me get out of there. You don't do that for a guy that you hate.
Paige: You know what? If you really did love me the way you say you did, you wouldn't be pressuring me. You'd respect what I'm telling you and know that I will never, ever get over what you put me through.
JJ: Paige, Paige--
JJ: If you just give me a chance--
Paige: Just leave me alone. I mean it.
[Cell phone ringing]
Kyle: Hey, I'm at my place. Get over here...now. I will take beauty into my own hands...where it belongs.
JJ: What's going on?
Kyle: What's up? Have a seat. Bro, I said have a seat.
Marlena: John, it's just not the same, it's...it's not the same kind of danger. I mean... the thing is, with this job, you'd--you'd be keeping lots of secrets. You'd have to be telling lots of lies. That's just part of...the job.
John: So that's what this is all about? Doc...honesty has never been an issue with us. When we said our vows together, we...rode it out through sickness and health, better or worse. Even death and the DiMeras couldn't keep us apart. So we can do this. I don't have any doubt in my mind.
Marlena: You'd better take that.
John: The ISA can wait.
Hope: We've been round and round about Clyde these past couple of months. Amen, thank God it's finally over.
Hope: Sometimes it can be really hard being on opposite sides of the law, huh?
Aiden: Well, we're not exactly on opposite sides.
Hope: Oh, come on. You know what I mean. I arrest the criminals, and you defend them. But Aiden, you know, what's really important? It's the trust that we share.
Aiden: I agree.
Hope: I really can't even express how important that is to me. It's the kind of thing you... you take for granted, and then...one day, it's gone. That's what happened with Bo and me. When, um... when our son died, he lied to me about something that I never thought I could ever forgive him for. Took me years to completely trust him again. And then he... I'm sorry.
Aiden: What? It's okay--
Hope: No, I just... I never in my wildest dreams ever thought that he would just walk out of our lives, that he-- his family wasn't the most important thing to him. After having my trust shattered like that... I never, ever thought that I could love someone again. Then you came along. I have to tell you that what was scarier than loving again... was trusting someone again. But I do. I trust you. After everything we went through in Puget sound together, my God, I mean... the risk you took, trusting me with your biggest secret... I would never, ever do anything to betray that. Not ever.
Aiden : I know. So... does this mean we can forget about Clyde? Concentrate on us?
Hope: Nothing I'd rather do right now.
Aiden: [Laughs] [Groans]
JJ: Yo, what the--?
Kyle: [Laughs] I've been meaning to clean this thing. [Humming]
JJ: So, you wanted to talk about something?
Kyle: Yeah. Yeah, I think I can trust you with more deets about what's going on.
Kyle: Just watch your back, JJ. You know, it's not just the competition. But it's the cops and the DEA.
JJ: You hearing stuff?
Kyle: A little bit. You got my back, right? 'Cause I got yours.
JJ: Yeah, sure.
Kyle: All right.
Kyle: JJ, relax. It's just an ambulance.
JJ: Right. Nothing to worry about.
Kyle: You good?
Daphne: What's wrong?
Paige: Oh...just everything.
Daphne: It can't be that bad. Okay. What about your awesome roommate who will buy you a fro yo and tell you sad tales of my non-existent love life?
Paige: [Laughs softly] No. Be grateful, Daphne. Falling in love was the biggest mistake I ever made. Now I don't know what to do.
Rafe: Well, good evening.
John: My beautiful date and I were hoping we could still get a table.
John: Sorry I missed the earlier reservation. Got called out on a 911.
Rafe: Is everyone okay?
John: Aiden Jennings got attacked at Salem inn.
Marlena: And thank goodness he wasn't badly hurt.
Rafe: Well, who did it?
John: Don't know. Some mugger came in off the street. Gloves, mask, no videos, no witnesses except for Aiden. He can't tell us anything.
Rafe: Well, that's strange that you got called in on a routine b and E.
John: They didn't. Hope was there. A little shaken up.
Rafe: Hope was there? Is she all right?
Marlena: She got there after it happened. She's fine.
Rafe: Good. Good.
Aiden: Much. Thank you.
Hope: We can't stay here tonight.
Aiden: We could get another room.
Hope: I have a better idea. Come home with me.
Aiden: But the kids...
Hope: They're at a sleepover, remember? You're part of my life now, Aiden. And I want to take care of you. I don't want to hide out in a hotel room anymore. I want to be with you. In my own bed.
Aiden: That's exactly where I want to be.
