Nicole: I love Indian summer.
Daniel: Ugh. I'm not looking forward to the cold, though.
Nicole: Okay, hey, hey. Don't think like that. All right? Everything is crisp and bright. Hey, what about a fall wedding?
Daniel: Do you want to wait a year to get married?
Nicole: No, no. Spring. Spring is just fine. But you know what? We can go away for the winter, right? It's kind of like a destination wedding.
Daniel: Or why even wait at all?
Daniel: Why wait, baby? Huh? I mean, who knows what tomorrow's going to bring?
Nicole: Yeah, okay. Uh... what did you have in mind?
Daniel: Do you have plans for tomorrow?
Anne: Hi. I was surprised to get your text.
Theresa: I'm really glad that you could come.
Anne: Mm-hmm. Where's the kid?
Theresa: Oh, I figured you wouldn't want to see Tate, so I, um, he--well, he's with the nanny.
Anne: That's a start.
Theresa: What are you having?
Anne: A bloody Mary. You?
Theresa: Oh, I'm good with coffee.
Anne: Why isn't this a party?
Theresa: Uh, well, for one thing, my cousin will was murdered last night.
Lucas: Yeah, I'll call you after, uh, his mom and I speak. Thank you.
Kate: Was that the funeral home?
Kate: Thank you for calling me last night.
Lucas: Well, I couldn't let you hear it on the news.
Kate: Honey, it was good of you--it was. Especially after everything that's gone on between us.
Lucas: You know what? That doesn't matter anymore. Nothing matters anymore. [Sobbing] My son is gone. He's gone, mom. I can't believe that. I can't believe he's gone. [Sobbing]
Marlena: Thank you for coming. [Sighs]
Brady: Of course. Where is she? Where's Sami?
Eric: She's, uh, still in her room.
Brady: Has anyone seen her this morning?
Marlena: No, not yet.
Eric: I, uh, I knocked on her door. She said she would come out soon.
Brady: She's gotta be crying her eyes out.
Eric: No. She's calm.
Marlena: In fact, she hasn't shed a tear since she got off the plane.
Brady: That's not good. I mean, even last year with EJ, she was a wreck. It was scary, but-- but it made sense.
Eric: Maybe it's just taking time to sink in. It just doesn't feel real.
Marlena: Well... she went to the morgue to s-- to see... believe me, it's real.
Brady: Well, she's gotta let it out. She has to, or it's--or it's gonna explode. It's gonna explode sometime, somewhere, and God knows what's gonna happen to her. D
Anne: Okay, my bad. Condolences. Whatever.
Theresa: [Scoffs] That's like the perfect sympathy card.
Anne: I will write it up. Oh, come on, Theresa. You were not that close to will Horton.
Theresa: That doesn't mean that I can't be sad. I mean, for god's sakes, Anne. He was my cousin. He was a young man. He got murdered for no reason, and... he was a dad, you know? He has this little girl, and--
Anne: Mm-hmm. And--and why are you-- why are you working this?
Theresa: I'm not. I really, really am sad about it. And shocked.
Anne: Oh, yeah, so sad and shocked you needed a little retail therapy.
Theresa: Tate needed sweaters.
Anne: [Chuckles] Okay. So, do you want me to feel bad for you?
Theresa: No. I-I would love some advice--
Anne: Ah, there it is. You need something. That's why you texted.
Theresa: Look, Anne, I really did feel bad about the other night. Okay, I mean, come on, you're my best--
Anne: Um... only.
Theresa: Best only friend. [Chuckles] I just--I don't want to mess up a good thing.
Anne: A-a good thing... with me?
Anne: [Chuckles] That is so not what you meant, but whatever. It's fine, just bring it on. Lay it on me. So, what's going on with you and the billionaire bimbo?
Theresa: Wait, wh--
Anne: Well, you're having problems with Brady, right?
Sami: It's so good to see you, Brady.
Brady: [Softly] Listen... [Murmurs] [Exhales sharply] Lousy, it's lousy to see you. Because of this.
Eric: Sami, you want some coffee?
Sami: Sure. Yeah.
Marlena: Go ahead. Did you, uh, get any sleep?
Sami: Some, yes. Ahem.
Eric: How are the kids?
Sami: They are, uh, they're still in California. They're, um, getting ready for school. I decided not to say anything to them until I can be there to tell them in person. Thank you.
Marlena: You know, if you wanted to bring them here, you have a lot of support. You could tell them here, and they'd have family around.
Sami: I don't want them to associate death with Salem.
Eric: Sami, we're just trying to help.
Sami: I know that, I know. It's just that there's nothing-- [Scoffs] There's nothing.
Marlena: Honey, if you don't start letting this out, I'm-- I'm concerned about you. You're safe here. You know how safe you are here.
Brady: Let it go.
Sami: No, I can't. [Breathing heavily] [Groans]
Nicole: [Chuckles] You're cute, honey. I know you're kidding, but I love your enthusiasm. You are kidding, right?
Nicole: Ok--okay, okay. We can do it soon, very soon. I'm open to anything.
Daniel: Okay, tonight. We get our calendars out...
Daniel: And we see when parker's gonna be here.
Daniel: And we just--fooh-- figure out a date.
Nicole: Destination wedding?
Daniel: Destination honeymoon, at least.
Daniel: Yep. Come on.
Nicole: Exotic beach. You surf, I snorkel, and then I can order those cute little drinks in a coconut.
Daniel: In the Maldives.
Nicole: No clue.
Daniel: Exotic and gorgeous. Not too rustic. Secluded. I'm thinking nude beach.
Nicole: Okay, I'm sold. You know what? Maybe I'll rethink my schedule tomorrow.
Daniel: I think you should.
Daniel: Oh, hold on. That's--all right. Argh. I gotta hop.
Daniel: Looks like I got a gall bladder that's about to burst.
Nicole: Ooh, yummy. Go get it, baby.
Daniel: Oh, I'm all over that. All right, what's your day, babe, hmm?
Nicole: Uh, well, getting the Milan office staffed.
Daniel: You are, like, a mogul.
Nicole: Yeah, I like to be in charge.
Daniel: Yeah, well, it looks good on you.
Nicole: Thank you.
Nicole: No, I-I probably... you know what? I probably need to pick up the slack, right? Because... Kate's gonna be a mess about will. She adored him.
Daniel: Yeah, that's just gonna make her more ruthless and focused.
Nicole: Yeah, I'm gonna try to forget you know all that about her.
Daniel: Eh, just a heads up.
Nicole: Yeah, but still, it is time for me to step up and take charge so she's not overwhelmed.
Daniel: All right. Good luck with that.
Nicole: Thank you.
Daniel: All right.
Nicole: Oh! Bye, good luck.
Kate: You didn't sleep at all last night.
Lucas: Did you?
Kate: You know, I kept on seeing will at his wedding. He made a point of walking me out into the garden. You know, just the two of us. He didn't want me to feel left out, you know? In the middle of his-- his very, very special day, he took the time to be kind to me.
Lucas: He loved you very much. He did. You were one of the people he knew he could count on.
Kate: Life is so short.
Lucas: Yeah. Yeah.
Kate: Have you been to a meeting...have you called?
Lucas: No, no, not yet. No. But, um, I'm not gonna take a drink. I-I don't want to do that. I mean, I didn't even think of it until you mentioned it.
Kate: Good. That's good to know.
Kate: You're such an adult. When did that happen?
Lucas: I don't know. Maybe when you weren't looking.
Kate: I don't want there to ever be this distance between us again. Not ever.
Lucas: Neither do I. Especially now. We're all we got, you know? Who would've thought that?
Kate: Maybe if we just... remember this.
Lucas: We can remember will. We can do that.
Lucas: Thank you for accepting him. I mean, you suspected he was gay before he even knew it. So I'm sure you were the reason he felt comfortable about it, you know?
Kate: No. I think that was probably Marlena.
Lucas: Well, whoever it was, it wasn't me, that's for sure. Not in the beginning, anyway.
Kate: You came around soon enough. And besides, he always, always knew how much you loved him.
Lucas: Yeah, but lately it just seems like all I did was chew him out, you know? For every little damn thing.
Kate: No. No. He was desperate to get Sonny back, you know? I just can't believe that they are never gonna have that chance, that, um, that Arianna is gonna grow up without knowing her--
Lucas: Listen, you know what? It's gonna be okay, all right? It's gonna be okay. It's gotta be okay.
Kate: Yeah, well, okay. And that's the important thing. We can't get started with this or we're never, ever gonna stop. And we have to be strong. We have to be strong for Arianna. I heard that--that Sami's here, so how's she doing?
Lucas: [Exhales deeply] She's being quiet, and dry-eyed.
Kate: That's not good.
Marlena: Honey, what are you afraid will happen if you let go?
Sami: I might not get back up. I mean, I almost didn't when I lost EJ, and I have three children who are counting on me to keep it together.
Brady: Sami, that's too much to put on yourself.
Marlena: Yeah, that's-- that's why I thought if you brought them here, we could all help--
Sami: I'm not letting them near Stefano. That's why I moved, right?
Brady: You wanted to get away from the DiMeras.
Sami: Yeah, I didn't wanna let Stefano do something to me or, God forbid, my... my children. Bottom line is I'm taking my kids and keeping them as far away from here as possible, and that's the plan.
Marlena: So you wanna go back to California where you can keep them safe, where you can feel strong and in control.
Eric: Sami, I know you. Sooner or later, it's gonna come out.
Brady: Give it to us, you know, we can take it.
Sami: What? You--you're just all gonna stand there and stare at me until I start crying? [Laughing]
Theresa: Just, Anne, I mean, the way we worked together, it was like...well, it was like we were a team.
Anne: Mmm. You and Brady bonded over the baby crying. That is hot.
Theresa: You had to be there.
Anne: Uh, mercifully, no, I do not have to be there. All right, so you're saying everything's fine with the guy, so what's your issue?
Theresa: Oh, God, my business partners.
Anne: Ha. There's a surprise. The three of you--you're like the witches in "Macbeth."
Theresa: Oh, yeah? Did one of them get sent out for coffee too?
Anne: Oh, no, they didn't.
Anne: Oh, girl...
Theresa: Yeah, I know, right? I mean, Kate wouldn't even be a business partner if it wasn't for me being the front.
Anne: Well, did you set her straight?
Theresa: I got the coffee.
Theresa: I know, I know.
Anne: You need me to tell you that that is insane?
Theresa: No, I don't, I don't, I just--
Theresa: [Sighs] Okay, look, I mean, if I was gonna fight dirty, I'd know exactly how to play, right?
Anne: Oh, thank God you're still in there.
Theresa: Yes, but that's not gonna work here...okay? I mean, Kate's been chewing up people like me and spitting them out for years, so...
Anne: Yeah, she's a legend.
Theresa: So what do you do? I mean, come on, when you're at the hospital, and Jennifer or somebody has more clout than you--
Anne: Uh, nobody does because I am the queen of hr.
Theresa: Okay, but you weren't at first, so... what did you do?
Anne: I was relentless, and I never sold myself short.
Theresa: Ha. So that's what, the, uh, "hang in there, baby" sympathy card?
Anne: See, you gotta be willing to stay on the field and take the hits, okay? Now, eventually, people tire out or they miss, and that, my friend, that's where you find their weakness.
Theresa: And go in for the kill?
Anne: If you can. So who we talking about? We talking about Kate or that walker Amazon?
Theresa: Yeah, Kate.
Anne: You want her out?
Theresa: No. Look, I mean, she's the money and she's smart about business.
Anne: So...you're going to suck up to her and her wisdom and make sure she doesn't cut you out of anything, you know? And even if it makes you sick, if you wanna puke, you just gotta be sweet to her.
Anne: Okay? Uh, meanwhile, I am gonna see what I can dig up on her just for like insurance.
Theresa: You're the best, Anne. You're my best and only friend.
Anne: Ha ha. Don't forget it again. [Laughs]
[Sami continues laughing]
Marlena: That's my favorite picture.
Sami: It's mine too. It's the last one she'll have with her...dad.
Marlena: How does that make you feel?
Sami: Don't treat me. "How does it make me feel?"
Marlena: Sami, you've gotta open up about your feelings so you can handle the grief.
Sami: Handle it? How am I supposed to handle that my son was murdered? Because I'm pretty sure that's just not something you can handle.
Eric: Okay, hey, hey, mom's just trying to help. Nobody knows what to say.
Sami: That's right--nobody knows.
Marlena: You need your space. But please honor your brother who is trying to help you.
Sami: Is that why they're here? For group counseling?
Brady: Sami, come on!
Sami: Just stop it. I don't want counseling. I don't want antidepressants. So what--tell me--what else do you got?
Marlena: What else do you want?
Sami: I want my son back! That's what I want. I want will back!
You get used to the lingering
Anne: So when's the next meeting of your coven?
Theresa: Today. I hacked into Kate's calendar and...
Anne: That a girl!
Theresa: There she is now.
Theresa: And there's Nicole.
Anne: All right, so what do you do?
Theresa: Okay. I Jack the meeting, and I don't let go until I get what I want.
Anne: Which is what? And don't say world domination, 'cause that's not the answer. Think in steps.
Theresa: Truth? I hate the numbers stuff. I just want to be a designer.
Theresa: Okay, so then get confirmation that that's what's happening and get on with the day. All right, is this where you ditch me?
Anne: All right, go, grasshopper. Go get what's yours.
Theresa: Okay. Happy hour. Soon.
Anne: Oh, yeah. Right.
Lucas: So I'll just--I'll let you know about the memorial when it's set.
Kate: Maybe we should have dinner later. If you have time--I know you're busy.
Lucas: I should get back to work.
Lucas: I'll call you later, okay?
Kate: Love you.
Nicole: Take care, Lucas.
Theresa: Kate... I'm really, really sorry about will. It's a tragedy.
Kate: Yes, it is.
Theresa: So, assuming that you're still working today, where's the meeting?
Theresa: Yeah, with the designers from Milan?
Kate: Why would you think we're meeting with the designers?
Theresa: Because I saw it on the calendar.
Kate: [Exhales] That was a conference call, Theresa, details to be worked out, and I handled it. As a matter of fact, I have to go over it with you. The CFO from the Milan branch was here. They have the transition budget, so...
Kate: Just a whole lot of boring business information, just number crunching, Theresa.
Theresa: I won't be bored.
Kate: This is not the day.
Nicole: Are you sure you wanna work? I mean, we can postpone--
Kate: No, absolutely. Being busy is the best thing for me right now.
Nicole: You're positive.
Kate: I have the budget for the spring roll-out. We need to see if we're in the ballpark.
Nicole: I ran comps on the houses that are closest to us and the size of their lines and order volume--
Theresa: I would love a copy of those.
Kate: You do not need to be a part of this. Your plate is going to be full enough when you start designing, Theresa.
Theresa: Right, but I'm an owner in the company and I wanna learn--
Kate: Yeah, see, no one ever does that. Never do that. You wanna have your best foot forward when you meet Flavia, don't you?
Theresa: Wait--we got Flavia Penneti?
Kate: Only if we put our heads together so we can work out all the details.
Theresa: I'll be designing with Flavia?
Kate: You will be learning under Flavia.
Theresa : Yeah, o-of course. Well, when do I get to show her my designs?
Kate: When you have something new.
Theresa: Yeah, I do, I really do, actually--I'm designing a dress for Salem's biggest wedding this fall.
Theresa: Yeah, and I love the design, it's really coming together--I'm thinking about doing a whole bridal wear--
Kate: Well, when you have a solid idea--
Theresa: No, I do, I already have ideas, I have tons of ideas, you know. I just have to...draw them.
Nicole: Yeah, you know...do that. Kate?
Kate: I think we should go.
Kate: Get to work, kid.
Theresa: Sure, yeah, I will. You know, I'll send you all my sketches tomorrow. Tell Flavia... [Sighs]
Marlena: No, don't follow her.
Eric: You think she should actually be out there alone?
Marlena: I do. Because she won't open up with us around.
Brady: You did that on purpose, didn't you? The shrink-speak: You never sound like that.
Marlena: I had to find some way to get a reaction out of her.
Eric: You were goading her.
Marlena: Won't be the first time she's annoyed with me. It's sitting right here. She's got to find a way to access that grief...and then she'll be okay. At least she'll be as okay as she can be right now.
Brady: I have to swing by the hospital. Let me know if there's anything I can do, okay?
Marlena: Of course.
Eric: I'll text you later.
Brady: All right.
Eric: So what about you? You had a good cry yet?
Marlena: I've had several.
Eric: I, uh...I spoke to Rafe this morning--did you hear?
Marlena: No, I haven't had the news on--I didn't want to upset Sami.
Eric: Well, they got Chad.
Marlena: What? Where?
Eric: He was at Ben Weston's apartment. Apparently, he broke in and he attacked Ben. Ben--he fought back. Chad's in the hospital. He's in a coma.
Marlena: Oh... wow. Did he say anything before he lost consciousness?
Eric: No. I think that he was actually passed out when the paramedics and the police arrived--why?
Marlena: Well, I'm just thinking that if he's unconscious, he... well, he can't defend himself.
Eric: What do you think he could possibly say?
Marlena: I don't know.
Eric: Mom, Ben, he gave a statement to the police. I mean, now there's a living witness to Chad's attacks.
Marlena: I suppose.
Eric: You still don't think Chad's the killer.
Marlena: Well, look, I-- I am a living witness to an attack, and when I think about it, I'm... I'm just not sure.
Eric: Mom, if Chad is the murderer...don't you think Sami's gonna find some comfort in that, knowing that Chad will pay?
Brady: Hey, I heard about Chad...is he here?
Daniel: He's in there, handcuffed to a bed.
Brady: Is he under arrest?
Daniel: He will be if he ever regains consciousness.
Brady: Unbelievable. How's Ben?
Daniel: He was checked out on the site. Chad got in a few hits, but basically he's gonna be okay.
Brady: Daniel, uh... did you check Chad's blood alcohol?
Daniel: I can't...talk about that with you. Why?
Brady: He came to me right after Serena was murdered. He asked a lot of questions about alcoholic blackouts. Look, if, uh, if Chad... if he wakes up, will you let me know?
Daniel: What are you gonna do, an intervention?
Brady: I guess we're a little past that with Chad, aren't we?
Eric: You know, I still can't believe you think Chad is innocent...even after he tried to murder you.
Marlena: Well, maybe. But when I think about it... I think maybe I jumped the gun.
Eric: Are you sure it's not because you just wanna be the one who spotted it? I mean, if Chad was the murderer.
Marlena: Could be part of it. But then I remember...waking up and seeing him. He was really worried about me.
Eric: Or getting caught. Mom, he ran. I mean, if he had nothing to hide, why would he run?
Marlena: Because why would he think that Salem pd would ever believe him? Because the evidence was stacking up against him.
Eric: Okay, mom, please just listen to what I'm saying.
Marlena: I know you think that your mother is blind.
Eric: You always see the good in everyone.
Marlena: We share that.
Eric: Look where it landed me. I mean, Serena, she did some terrible things, but it doesn't make her evil.
Marlena: Chad isn't either.
Sami: I love you so much... and I have loved you since the day that I found out I was pregnant. I was all alone then... [Sighs] And I'm all alone now. [Laughs] You're the only good thing in my life now, will. From the very first moment that I laid eyes on you... I knew that you would be the best thing I ever did. And you still are.
Will: If you make me cry now--
Sami: Well, I might not get a chance to do it later. William Horton... you are... the perfect son. Good night, sweetheart. [Sniffles] You sleep well. Your daddy and I are here, and we're gonna keep the tigers away.
Brady: Is that work? I should run.
Daniel: No, no, no, actually, it's, uh...it's Nicole.
Brady: What is... what, from a tropical island?
Daniel: Nah, that's the Maldives. We're thinking about it for a honeymoon.
Brady: Ha ha. You set a date yet?
Daniel: Uh, not yet, but could be soon. Tomorrow, if I had my way.
Brady: Yeah, no time to lose, right?
Daniel: Ah, it just kinda feels that way all the way around, doesn't it?
Brady: Really does.
Daniel: Yeah. No, but I'm not even sure I can get Nicole out of town. She's already married to basic black.
Brady: Mmm. Yeah.
Daniel: Yeah, yeah.
Brady: She's really dug into that.
Daniel: Yeah, I'm not real thrilled you backed her on that one.
Brady: Well, as her chief investor, I can make sure that she gets a very long honeymoon.
Daniel: All right, well, we'll figure it out. I'm just glad she gets to do something she loves, be her own boss, right?
Brady: Well, maybe...right?
Daniel: Yeah. Kate in the mix...no telling, is there?
Nicole: So do we need to deal with the personnel from Milan?
Kate: Hell, no. Flavia's already on board, and Giovanni accepted our deal late last night.
Nicole: Oh! That's, uh...
Kate: That is fantastic. That's what it is, fantastic, because he's the best and it's exactly what we need. Have you told Eric yet?
Nicole: No. Not yet. And now with will's murder, I'm sure he's already hurting.
Kate: Well, everyone is hurting, but business is business. He needs to be told. I wanna do a press release ASAP.
Nicole: What about Theresa's editorial input?
Kate: Oh...please, please.
Nicole: Wow, you really played that girl up one side and down the other, didn't you?
Kate: I didn't lie. I am going to ask her a question...eventually.
Nicole: And ignore her answer.
Kate: Well, I'm doing her a favor.
Kate: What? Don't laugh, it's true. This is a tough business, and I'm giving her a very important life lesson.
Nicole: Yeah, me, too. And I'm just saying I'm gonna sleep with one eye open.
Kate: Are you planning on sleeping?
Theresa: Oh... [Groans] [Sighs] Oh, you can do this.
Brady: You can. You can. You want fries with that?
Brady: It's cute. I'll tell you, if someone worked a fast food restaurant wearing this, I would totally take fries.
Theresa: Oh, yeah?
Brady: I would super-size it.
Theresa: Would you marry it? It's supposed to be a wedding dress.
Theresa: Oh, oh, in that case, it totally sucks, Theresa.
Brady: Hold on, hold on. I didn't say that.
Theresa: Well, it's okay. I did. [Sighs] Are those Tate's vitamins?
Theresa: Were there cops at the hospital?
Brady: You heard about Chad.
Theresa: Yeah, it's on the news. He's lucky.
Brady: He's in a coma.
Theresa: He's lucky my cousin Sami didn't get to him first.
Sami: [Sniffles] [Sobbing] Woman: My mom and I have the same hands.
Brady: Theresa, I-I may be a little mia for a while. I'm gonna help out with the family.
Theresa: Yeah. Don't apologize. They're my family too.
Brady: Yeah, I guess we're all sort of...connected.
Theresa: It's not a bad thing, especially right now. You know, we all need to...
Theresa: You know, Tate should be up by now.
Brady: Yeah, he's probably up. I'm, uh...I'm gonna go. You got some drawings to work on.
Theresa: Little steps. Stay on the field.
Eric: Hey, Nicole.
Nicole: Hey. I am so sorry about will.
Eric: Thank you.
Nicole: So how is... everyone?
Eric: They're hanging in. What else can you do?
Nicole: Would it be rotten to...talk about business?
Eric: No, no, please.
Nicole: Uh... so, uh... I-I don't want to keep you hanging, you know? I should have told you this when I saw you before, and now-- you need to know, um... Kate offered the Basic Black photography job to Giovanni Carpolini as an exclusive, and...he accepted.
Nicole: You don't look surprised.
Eric: No, it's okay.
Nicole: It is?
Eric: [Laughs] Giovanni, I mean, he's been shooting editorial fashion for decades. I couldn't even compete against that.
Nicole: Wow, um... how are you handling this so well? I mean, besides the fact that that's what you always do.
Eric: My family needs me right now. It's all I can really think about... just seeing them... helping them, I mean... something like this happens without warning.
