This is from EJ. "My darling Samantha. If you are reading this, then it means something terrible has happened to me. I've given this letter to a lawyer, with instruction that it be sent to you within a year of my... of my death. And if I'm gone, there is only one person who could be responsible... my father."
Stefano: You must fight. Fight, fight, you understand me. I cannot bury another son.
Stefano: [Sighs] Get out, Hernandez!
Abigail: Ben? Ben, are you home?
Abigail: [Sighs] Chad.
Ben: What did you say?
Paul: I'm so sorry.
Sonny: [Sniffles] What are you doing here?
Paul: I heard you were in town. I figured this would be the first place you'd come.
Sonny: It was the second, because... [Sniffles] I saw my parents first.
Paul: I'm sure that they were a real help.
Sonny: They want to be. Everyone wants to be. [Crying] This is a crime scene, right? Right? People have been tramping in and out all day. They had to have taken things or moved things. How does it look exactly the way it did when I walked out of the door? Like--like will could walk in at any minute.
Ben: Sounded like you said "Chad."
Abigail: I...I did. I said Chad because I... I can't stop thinking about the fight between you two.
Ben: It's over.
Abigail: Yeah. I'm just-- I'm so glad you weren't hurt worse.
Ben: I'm tough. But you need to be more careful. This has sharp edges.
Abigail: I know. Lucky nobody stepped on it barefoot. I, um... kind of cleaned everything up, but I-I guess I missed it because I saw it under the couch and I just--
Ben: It's okay. It's okay.
Abigail: [Sighs] I'm sorry that I wasn't here, Ben.
Ben: Don't be. I'm glad you didn't have to experience that. It was the scariest thing I've ever seen... the hatred in his eyes. He wanted to kill me.
Rafe: Well, I don't mean to intrude. But I'm in the middle of an investigation. I've got three death bodies and so far, all the evidence points to your son.
Stefano: You're here to gloat?
Rafe: I need to question you. Now, if you'd like, you can come down to my office, but I figured I come here and save you the trip.
Rafe: So, the night of Serena mason's murder, did you see Chad?
Stefano: That afternoon.
Rafe: It's my understanding the two of you had a disagreement. Chad went to the club and started drinking. He come back to the mansion after that at all? Did any of the staff see him?
Stefano: Ask them.
Rafe: I will. And what about after that? After we were all looking for him? Did you stash Chad in one of your secret rooms? The night of Paige's murder?
Stefano: You're looking for an alibi for him, aren't you? You believe Chad is innocent, huh?
Sami: "I didn't want to burden you. I knew you were already living in dread of what vengeance my father might take on us. He'd been furious ever since we reconciled. He'd made threats. I did what I could to placate him. I thought I had. But just in case, I was prepared to run, to leave everything and take you and the children away at a moment's notice. Anything to keep us together. You are reading this because I made a mistake. Somehow I miscalculated. Somehow my father managed... to get rid of me. Now there will never be peace with Stefano." [Sighs] "I can see to that." You can? "I can make sure that you and the children are safe. In this envelope, you'll find a key and an address." "The key is to a safe deposit box in Zurich. You are the signatory. Inside that box, you'll find my last gift to you... ammunition. I'm giving you the means to take your revenge. It's your choice."
Sonny: When I got the call... it was like, when a bomb goes off in a movie. Like, everyone is stumbling around and-- you can see people talking, the lips moving, but... you can't hear a thing.
Paul: Yeah, that seems... right.
Sonny: Nothing about this seems right.
Paul: I didn't mean-- I can--I can see how that's what can happen when you get a shock.
Sonny: I didn't mean to jump.
Paul: Sonny, you can do whatever you want. Whatever you need.
Sonny: What I need is the last eight months back.
Paul: Yeah, I wish that for you too.
Sonny: Do you?
Sonny: Well... I'm just gonna have to settle for... picking up a few of my things. Will wrote me and said, everything is exactly where I left it. And, uh... looks like it.
Paul: You want some help packing?
Sonny: No. I'm just gonna grab a couple things now.
Paul: Well, I... guess I'll leave you to it.
Will knew you loved him. He didn't give up because he knew you loved each other.
You want me to ring you up?
Eric: You know what, actually I think I'll have another one.
Good for you.
Sami: "What happens now is up to you. Just know that whatever I am, in whatever passes for heaven or hell, there is only one thing that gives me peace. I will always picture us together with our children on our own island far away."
Sami: [Crying] "That is the only image that can sustain me through any eternity without you..." [Sobbing] "I will hold it for us, as I have always done. All my love..." oh, EJ.
Marlena: Oh, hi--honey? Well, Sami. Hey. Is everything all right?
Rafe: We'll follow the facts, Stefano, the evidence. But my opinion doesn't mean a damn thing. The DA is the one that's gonna bring the charges. And right now, right now, the DA is ready to indict him the minute he wakes up. Because the case against Chad is solid. In fact, it's pretty damn overwhelming. But...
Stefano: But the real killer is still out there.
Rafe: I need solid proof, Stefano. Proof.
Abigail: I should be asking you that. It's just so--
Abigail: Yeah. Just doesn't make any sense. That he would come here and fight you.
Ben: He's in love with you, Abigail. And I'm in the way.
Abigail: But I chose you, Ben.
Ben: Yeah, you did chose me. And he never accepted it. Didn't you see that? Did you really believe him trying to be all noble, thinking we're all gonna be such great friends? He never gave up on you.
Abigail: That's not love.
Ben: You're right. I shouldn't have used that word. He was obsessed with you. And he hated losing.
Abigail: But that's-- but he had lost. He was on the run. Why come out of hiding--
Ben: You keep trying to force it to make sense. Abigail, it won't. It won't, baby. It's--it's--it's not logical. This guy killed three people. And he tried to kill two more. That's a madman. You have to be able to accept that, Abigail, and just...let it go. Otherwise...
Abigail: Otherwise what?
Ben: You or the baby could get hurt. There's no telling what a monster like that will do.
Ben: Do you understand me?
[Knock at door]
Abigail: I'll get it. Hey, hi, Rafe.
Abigail: Um, come on in.
Rafe: Thanks. Sorry to bother you in the evening, but I figured you'd be home. I need to get your statement on record. I figured I'd save you a trip downtown.
Ben: You need it right now? Abi and I were just gonna--
Abigail: Oh, no, that's okay. I-I actually have some stuff I have to take to, um, to work. So I can just do that and I-I won't be too late. Okay? It's no problem.
Rafe: Okay. Let's start from the beginning.
Ben: All right. Well, I already told you everything that happened last night, so...
Rafe: Okay, great. Well, then it shouldn't take long. Ben... it helps to do this. You would be surprised how many people, they'll suddenly remember some new detail. We want that case against Chad to be airtight when it goes to court now, don't we?
Ben: That makes sense.
Ben: Okay, so, let's do it.
Marlena: Do you want to talk about what happened in Chad's room?
Sami: No. No, um-- and--and, um, it's not that.
Marlena: What is it? Is it something else?
[Knock at door]
Marlena: Oh. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Oh, honey.
Sonny: I heard that-- Sami.
Sami: Oh, Sonny.
Sami: Oh, Sonny. Oh, I'm so glad to see you.
Sonny: Not like this. Not like this.
Sami: No. No, Sonny.
Sonny: I can't believe this is why I'm back.
Sami: No. No, none of us can believe it.
Sonny: I never should've left town. I was such a coward for leaving.
Marlena: No, Sonny--
Marlena: That's not true.
Sonny: Will would be alive if I didn't leave town.
Marlena: No, no, Sonny, you're wrong. You're not responsible for what happened and you couldn't have stopped it. Sami, tell him.
Sami: Of course. Sonny, you have to listen to-- you have to listen to my mom. You--you talk to my mom, okay? And I-I have to go. I have to-- I have to--I'm sorry. I have to get some air.
Marlena: Honey, Sonny just--
Sami: I know, I know, I have to go.
Marlena: Darling, oh, my gosh.
Sonny: She blames me.
Marlena: No. She doesn't blame you. She's just-- she's all over the place right now, you know? But she doesn't judge, darling. She doesn't judge, okay? Everybody is just-- we're reeling. And Sami is just trying to... she's just trying. Oh, honey. I'm so sorry.
Marlena: I know, I know.
Sami: Oh, hey.
Eric: What is it?
Sami: I don't know, I--
Eric: What happened?
Sami: I just have something-- have you been drinking?
Eric: I-I was with a friend.
Sami: Oh, oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt your evening, I just--
Eric: I'm sorry. It's fine. What's going on?
Sami: Well, I wanted to talk to grandma about this, but you know what? I can't, because I'm not supposed to be here, and she doesn't know about will, so I can't--
Eric: Sami, just breathe. Why would you call grandma?
Sami: Well, because she's the only one who ever understood about--
Eric: About what?
Sami: I'm gonna tell you. But first, you have to promise me that you're not gonna say anything to anyone. And then, you'll also have to promise me that you'll be objective about this, okay? You'll be clearheaded because I just need--
Eric: I promise. Just tell me.
Sami: When I went back to mom's, she pulled out all the mail she's been saving for me. And, um... this was in the pile.
Eric: Handwriting is EJ?
Sami: Yeah. What?
Eric: Somebody could've forged it.
Sami: What? No! I mean, maybe, but-- but they wouldn't have known what to write. And... I mean, this is all really specific. It's really specific stuff that EJ knew would mean something to me.
Eric: Are you sure? Remember, you lived in Stefano DiMera's mansion. For all you know, he could've had the whole place wired.
Sami: Why are you saying this?
Eric: Samantha, you asked me to be objective, clear-minded, right? Okay? I'm just saying, I think you need to be skeptical about every word in that letter.
Ben: It's just so hard to relive it all, you know?
Chad: It was you! I thought it was your dad. I was sure he was doing it for you, 'cause I didn't think you were crazy enough to--
Ben: You're out of your mind.
Chad: Your dad was in jail when Will was killed.
Chad: So it had to be you.
Ben: Chad just busted in here and he started raving.
Rafe: That's what you said before, raving.
Rafe: Yeah. Can you describe it differently? Any detail? Besides "raving"?
Ben: It was just this nonsense.
Chad: I'm right.
Ben: Prove it.
Chad: I will prove it. I'm gonna watch you rot in jail for the rest of your life.
Ben: All this nonsense babble.
Chad: First, I'm gonna get Abigail as far away from you as I can.
Ben: "You can't have her. She's mine; I'll take her." He must've said that to me ten times. "You can't have her. She's mine; I'll take her."
Rafe: And that's when it got violent?
Chad: Where do you think you're going?
Ben: I'm calling the cops. There's an APB out for you.
Chad: No, no, no, I don't think so.
Ben: Not at first. He was doing that whole broken record thing and I thought that was gonna be it, you know? He'd run his mouth, eventually he'd calm down, and then we could just talk like adults. Then I turned around, or I looked away for a minute, and he sucker-punched me. I didn't even see it coming.
Rafe: But he didn't knock you out? You fought back.
Chad: [Grunts] They'll know.
Ben: Who's gonna know?
Chad: Abigail will know. I won't quit until you...
Ben: Chad was so crazed, I didn't think I'd have a chance. I guess I just got lucky. Otherwise I'd be the one in the coma.
Stefano: Stay away from my son.
Abigail: Me? I-I tried to help your son.
Abigail: I didn't believe for a second that he was a murderer. I found a place for him to hide and I believed in him. Then he attacked Ben out of nowhere. I don't understand why he would do something like that. He knew that the cops were already focused on him and Chad is smart enough to know what that would look like. Why would he do something so foolish? So foolish if he wasn't... I don't want to think it. I don't want to believe that he's guilty, Stefano.
Abigail: Oh, my God. Oh, Sonny. I'm so sorry.
Abigail: I just... none of this makes any sense at all.
Sonny: No. It doesn't.
Abigail: Where are you staying?
Sonny: My uncle Vic's.
Abigail: Okay. Good, I'm sure your parents are really happy to see you. Please let them take care of you.
Sonny: You know, I went home.
Sonny: Yeah, I saw Gabi.
Abigail: You see Ari too?
Sonny: No, I'm not r-- I'm not ready for that.
Abigail: It's okay.
Abigail: It's okay. Thank God Gabi's here.
Sonny: I know.
Abigail: Listen, uh, do you want to, maybe, um, go for a walk or get a bite to eat maybe? Just whatever you want, we can--
Sonny: No, no, I don't-- actually I have a few more people to go see.
Sonny: Is that the room?
Abigail: Yes. Yeah. Chad's in a coma. But he'll be officially arrested if he ever wakes up.
Sonny: Chad is my best friend. He's will's best friend. They knew each other before. Like, they've known each other forever. Abigail, this doesn't make any sense. Like, I-I can-- my mind will not believe this.
Abigail: I know, I know. I know.
Ben: Is that it?
Rafe: Yeah. That's it for now. But if other questions come up, I may need to get back to you.
Ben: Sure. Anytime.
Rafe: Okay. Good. How are you feeling, man?
Ben: Oh, better, thank you.
Rafe: Good, good. All right.
Ben: All right.
Rafe: Hey. I remember what I forgot. Timing.
Ben: Excuse me?
Rafe: Yeah, um, well, you and Chad, you were never friends. There's no secret there, right?
Ben: No, no.
Rafe: Yeah, but, uh, well, he and Abigail, they broke up before you two started going out. Well, it's not like she dumped Chad to go out with you, right?
Ben: Doesn't mean he ever accepted it.
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, but you guys have been going out for what, a year now? And then there's the baby. Everyone pretty much knows about the baby, don't they? Yeah. So, see, that's-- that's the thing. That's the point that I don't get. 'Cause it just doesn't make sense. Why now? What do you think, just suddenly escalated? Why?
Eric: Sami, I'm sorry. But you asked.
Sami: I know.
Eric: What do you think?
Sami: I think it's EJ. I do. Every word in it, it feels like EJ-- the feelings that I have when I read it, it's how we were. At the end.
Eric: So it's exactly what you'd want to hear?
Sami: Yeah. It's-- what happened to you? When did you get so cynical? Where is my twin brother?
Eric: I'm right here. I'm just taking life as it comes. All right, just tell me why else you believe it, besides the fact that it's exactly what you'd want to hear from EJ.
Sami: I never believed that EJ would just let some random junkie kill him. He wouldn't let a guy like that close to him.
Eric: All right. So now, you think that Stefano put a hit out?
Sami: Well, he's capable of it, right? And Stefano was so furious that EJ and I were back together, he would've done anything, and EJ and I were aware of it, right? EJ was trying to hold him off.
Eric: And what if it's true? What then?
Sami: Well, then Stefano is the reason that my husband was taken from me and my children. And if that is true, then I'll-- I will strangle him.
Eric: The way his other son killed your son?
Sami: Stefano is responsible for taking my husband and my son from me. And I will make him pay.
Eric: If this is true.
Sami: You think it's a hoax? You think I'm supposed to just forget about it? Is that what you're saying?
Eric: No, that's not what I'm saying. I'm just asking questions.
Sami: So am I. I have to find out if this is real.
Ben: You guys at the Salem pd are smart. I'm sure you'll figure it out.
Rafe: Yeah, but if we don't talk to Chad... I don't know.
Ben: I think it kind of makes sense. The pressure just built and built. Chad lost Abigail, he kills those women, he goes on the run, maybe, he--he decides he's gonna get caught anyway. So if he can't have Abigail, nobody can... especially not me.
Sami: The lawyer's information is right here on the envelope, so I can track him down, you know, and get him to explain this key to me.
Eric: Sami, what if that's taking the bait?
Sami: You're right. You're right, it could be bait. I mean, I'm glad you're thinking like this, 'cause that's-- that's exactly what I need, you know? And we have to figure out what Stefano could be up to doing this. I can't think.
Eric: Of course you can't. Not right now.
Sami: Okay, but I can't just let it go either, right? What should I do?
Eric: Sami, Stefano is here. He's not going anywhere. And this letter is at least, what a year old, right?
Sami: Well, it might be. But it also, just-- it feels really in my face, you know? It feels right now I should do something.
Eric: It'd certainly be a lot easier.
Eric: Well, it'd be a lot easier seeking revenge on Stefano than what you came home to do.
Sami... listen to me, you are saying good-bye to your son tomorrow.
That what's important. It is the only thing that's important right now.
Paul: I swear, I'm not stalking you.
Sonny: I know. This is always the time that you like to run.
Paul: So... what are your plans?
Sonny: My plans?
Paul: Yeah, after the funeral.
Sonny: I'm just gonna make sure that Arianna is okay, and Gabi is okay. Then... I'm just gonna... catch a flight back to, uh, to Paris. Why?
Paul: Did you even think about staying?
Sonny: Is that what you want?
Paul: It's not for me. There are people here that can help you. Your daughter is here.
Sonny: That little girl... she's two years old, Paul. How is it fair that I come back here for a week or two or--or a month... when I--when I plan on leaving again?
Paul: Do you know that?
Sonny: I don't know anything.
Paul: Maybe... don't make any sudden moves. Getting on a plane has always been your default. But, I mean, wherever you went, or at least, wherever we went, you always talked about family, home.
Sonny: [Sniffs] That's true. I-I just, I-I-I do not know what I'm gonna do after tomorrow. That was good advice. Thank you.
Eric: So what are you gonna do?
Sami: Bury my son tomorrow.
Eric: What about the day after that?
Sami: I don't know. You'll have to ask me then.
Eric: Okay, just promise me that you won't strangle Stefano. Don't want dad to put you in jail.
Sami: He won't have to. Strangling is too good for Stefano anyway.
Sami: Maybe whatever EJ left me in the safe deposit box...
Andre: You're still five moves ahead, father. I-I think we have to hope that Chad stays in a coma. I think it's his best option right now... until we figure a way to spirit him out of the hospital to a place of safety.
Stefano: Perhaps... there is a third option.
Abigail: You can't be-- you can't be that monster.
Excuse me, ma'am?
Abigail: Nothing. Um... nothing. [Sighs] No.
Rafe: Yeah. It makes sense.
Ben: I mean, maybe... who knows? The whole family is crazy, right?
Rafe: That they are. I guess we'll see when Chad wakes up. If he wakes up. Take care.
Ben: [Exhales deeply]
