Code blue. Chad DiMera.
Daniel: Easy, easy, easy, easy, easy. There you go, relax, relax. All right, right here, focus. Look at me, look at me, look at me. There you go.
Daniel: Chad, calm down. Look at me, look at me, look.
Daniel: Right here, right here, look right here. There you go. There you go. You have been here for a while. I know, I know, easy, easy. The cops insisted on the cuffs. Easy, easy.
Rafe: You're still here? At this hour?
Justin: I'm not ready to go home.
Rafe: Well, there's nothing new to report.
Justin: Let's go over it again. You have the chain of custody affidavits on the trace evidence found in Paige's dorm room?
Rafe: I handed the bagged evidence to the lab tech myself.
Justin: What about after that? Chad DiMera will hire a big-time legal shark who will pick at every detail, Rafe, every technicality.
Justin: We have to be ready for that.
Rafe: Hang on.
Rafe: Coming? Huh?
Justin: Hell, yeah.
Daniel: Slow it down. You gotta just stay calm. Slow down. All right, give me 10 mgs of diazepam iv, stat.
Daniel: Hey, slow down, slow down, easy, eas-- look at me, look at me, look at me, everything is gonna be okay. Everything is gonna be just-- just fine. That's it, breathe. Just breathe. Look at me, look me right in the eye. That's it, breathe. Stay calm, that's it, just calm. Stay calm.
Hope: [Grunts] Eh! I! Eh! Ah! Ah! Ahh.
Marlena: John? Are you home? John? I have a surprise for you.
John: Me too.
Marlena: Ah. Are you leaving?
John: Washington called this morning. The ISA has a mission for me.
Marlena: Hope is getting married. Look, we may not feel like going to the gala right now, but we must be at her wedding.
John: Yeah, I know. I wish I could go, Doc, but... I can't, I have to leave.
Ben: Abigail, it's me, again. Please call me back. I know you think I was being a jerk, but we can fix this. It's nothing. Just please call me back. Come home. Let me know you're okay.
Daniel: Easy, just take it easy, let me get you some water. This should help you out a little bit. I want you to sip really slow, all right? Really slow, just a little bit. There you go. All right, that's good enough. That's good. That's good, that's good.
Daniel: There you go, hang in there. Yeah.
Chad: Why am I here?
Daniel: You've been in a coma. You got in a fight, you were knocked unconscious.
Chad: A fight? With who?
Daniel: You don't remember? That's not unusual. You're just waking up, and... been out for quite a while.
Chad: Tell me who.
Daniel: Okay, hey, don't worry about that now. The good news is, you're awake, which is quite a surprise.
Chad: [Coughs] Tell--tell me.
Daniel: You know, let us find out what's going first, okay?
Chad: Answer me, tell me.
Daniel: Okay, Chad, Chad, just trust me, if you want to remember, the best thing you can do is just rest. Your memories will come back to you as you get stronger. I'm gonna be right back. Don't fight the sedative. Just let yourself rest. Be right back.
Hope: Did he say anything?
I don't know what he told the doctors. I texted you and detective Hernandez.
Hope: Hey, Daniel. What's going on with Chad?
Daniel: He spontaneously woke up.
Hope: Well, how is he?
Daniel: I've only done a preliminary check, we need to do some blood work, ct scan at least, but he looks like he's in pretty good shape.
Rafe: Chad's awake? Coherent?
Daniel: Awake, coherent, but rattled, he doesn't--
Justin: Need to be lying around here. Let's put some clothes on him, read him his rights, and get him in lockup where he belongs.
Chad: Tell me the other guy looks worse.
Chad: What happened? They said it was a fight. Why? Why-- why--
Justin: Abigail, you have to leave now.
Chad: Why does she have to go? The hell's going on? Why am I handcuffed?
Rafe: You're being detained.
Hope: Don't you remember?
Justin: Come on, Chad.
Daniel: As I tried to explain outside, he has no memory of the fight.
Justin: Oh, how convenient.
Daniel: It's common.
Justin: Rafe, read him his rights.
Daniel: I recommend he doesn't be moved yet.
Justin: I'm just making it official. In case you have any ideas about running, we can now add to the list fleeing prosecution.
Chad: Who the hell did I hit?
Justin: Oh, don't forget the assault charges.
Rafe: Chad DiMera, you're under arrest for the murder of Serena mason...
Rafe: Paige Larson, and will Horton.
Chad: What do you mean, will?
Paige: No! [Screams] No!
Ben: Good, will.
Will: [Grunts] Please!
Ben: [Grunts] [Grunts] I had to do it. I had to do it, I had to.
Marlena: I guess I should've known. You know, I'm coming to hate the sight of that bag. Is there any sense in me trying to talk you out of this thing?
John: Yeah, I'd put 'em off if I could, Doc. I did last time, remember? Look, I don't want this to get in the way of us here, but I gotta do the job.
Marlena: You have to, really?
John: Yes, I do. I haven't been able to find the truth about my parents on my own. And it's not a one-way street. They have a right to expect me to do a job.
Marlena: Will I be able to know where you are?
John: [Sighs] I will...call you once I can get a signal.
Marlena: A signal? Oh, my God!
John: I've worked the terrain, I know the territory.
Marlena: The terrain?
John: I'll be careful, Doc, come on.
Marlena: I cannot lose you. I cannot lose one more person that I love!
John: You're not gonna-- you're not gonna lose anybody. That's a fact, sweetheart.
[Knock at the door]
Eric: Mom, hi. I'm sorry I'm late, but I need to tell you something important. Sami, she could be in danger.
Ben: I'm trying to find my fiancée, Abigail Deveraux. Is she there?
Haven't seen her.
Ben: What's going on?
Chad DiMera is out of the coma.
Rafe: You have the right to remain silent. You understand?
Chad: Will is dead? How--how--
Rafe: I need you to answer the question.
Chad: I don't understand, how can will be dead?
Justin: Who is this show for, Chad?
Chad: How did will die, Rafe?
Justin: Rafe, read him his rights.
Rafe: Prisoner does not understand his rights as read.
Chad: No, I get that, I want to know how will died.
Justin: Go ahead.
Rafe: You have the right to an attorney and to have that attorney present during questioning. Do you understand? You will also be facing charges for assault for what you did to Marlena Evans and Ben Weston.
Chad: I mean, why would I attack Marlena? That's insane.
Justin: But Ben Weston is fair game? Actually, don't answer that. Don't say anything until your lawyer is present. We're doing this by the book.
Chad: Rafe, is will dead? Is that real?
Rafe: Very real.
Chad: Will was my friend. Why would I kill him? That's insane. Abby! Abby, tell them. Tell them this--it's wrong.
Eric: I got this from Sami half an hour ago.
Marlena: "I picked up the package in Switzerland. I'm being followed, I'm heading home." You know, she told me she was going to do that, right after will's funeral, but it sounded so crazy, I didn't think that she would.
Eric: Mom, she was dead serious.
Marlena: And you would know why. I saw the two of you with your heads together at the funeral. So she was telling you what was going on?
Eric: Mom, she didn't want to say anything. But now it's obviously much more--it's dangerous, so we can't leave her there alone.
John: You want me to go get her?
Eric: It sounded like she was already back from Zurich on her way here.
John: Text said Switzerland. Why are you saying Zurich?
Eric: No, EJ sent her there.
Eric: EJ, he sent her a letter in the mail that you gave her.
Marlena: No, that's not possible.
Eric: Well, apparently, he wrote a letter and gave it to his lawyer to be delivered in the event of his death.
John: Letter from the grave? Sounds like a set-up.
Eric: That's what I thought too, but Sami swore that only EJ would know the things that were mentioned in that letter.
Marlena: Ohh. She must have been overwrought. Why didn't she call me?
John: Not coming to you, Doc, not about EJ.
Eric: Mom, she didn't even want to say anything to me. She said she would've gone to grandma if things would have been better.
Marlena: Why'd the letter send her to Switzerland?
Eric: Well, apparently, EJ, he had ammunition to get even with his father, in a safe deposit box in Zurich, so she went there.
Marlena: Why didn't you stop her?
Eric: We're talking about Sami. Sami, you just don't stop her when she's made up her mind. I assume that she's got evidence that proves that Stefano killed her husband, and now she's just trying to make him pay.
John: And you'd have been right there with her, Doc.
Eric: That's true. Mom, you've been trying to get revenge on Stefano for decades.
Chad: Abby, tell them. You know me, you know I couldn't kill anyone, let alone will. Abby.
Daniel: You know what, you shouldn't be in here.
Chad: Abby, tell them, Abby!
Justin: Don't put that poor girl in the middle of this. You tried to kill her fiancé!
Chad: That's a load of--
Rafe: It's best if you stop talking now, Chad.
Justin: Chad, you're fooling no one, and now you're being charged with three counts of murder in the first degree. Do you understand that?
Daniel: My patient hasn't been conscious even an hour.
Justin: Your patient is a serial killer! And now, I'm gonna make damn sure he's going to pay.
Chad: Justin, I don't know what I did to you that has you so mad at--
Justin: Don't even think of trying this. An amnesia defense?
Rafe: What's the last thing you remember?
Chad: I was at the club, and I bought a redhead a drink.
Justin: How convenient. She was your first victim.
Daniel: It's time for you guys to go.
Justin: Not without the prisoner.
Daniel: Hey, your prisoner is my patient until I say he's well enough to be discharged.
Justin: When will that be?
Daniel: I don't know, I need to get a ct scan and evaluate it.
Justin: Can you do that tonight?
Daniel: I can do it tonight.
Justin: Great. We'll be right outside, waiting.
Abigail: You didn't see him. You didn't see him, Hope, before everybody started in on him. It was like nothing ever happened.
Hope: That's what he says, honey.
Abigail: No, that's not-- that's not what he says, that-- he's telling the truth. Hope, I know he is, he's telling the truth, I could tell by the way he was looking at me. I could see it in his eyes.
Hope: Abigail, please, try to calm down, okay?
Abigail: What, calm down? What do you mean? How am I supposed to calm down? How can you stay so calm right now?
Hope: I'm sorry. It was a stupid thing for me to say. Abigail, I'm worried about you, for you to be this emotional right now--
Abigail: Yes, I'm emotional, Hope! Of course I'm emotional! I'm emotional and I'm angry and I'm pissed off, and honestly, I'm sick to my stomach right now, because everybody in this damn town is so prejudiced against him because of his name! And--the fact that they are just assuming--assuming that he's capable of committing these heinous crimes and these senseless murders, it's not only left everybody in Salem heartbroken, but now everybody's scared out of their minds, and they are just assuming that he did this because of who his father is and that is so unfair!
Hope: I know it seems that-- okay, I know it seems that way, but that is not what--
Abigail: No, Hope, it's not that it just seems that way. It is that way. It is that way, and if he were really this monster, if that's really who Chad was, then he would know. He would know.
Hope: Honey, where are you going?
Abigail: I'm just--I need time, and you have a job to do. I'm fine. I'm fine.
Justin: Make sure we have the best people at the station for the perp walk.
Rafe: You want to walk him in tonight?
Justin: What, you think we should wait for the morning news? No, we're doing this by the book. As soon as Chad can move, we're taking him into custody. Who's on watch command tonight?
Justin: I need captain Lanza. It's the DA.
Hope: What do you think?
Rafe: Hard to say.
Hope: You buy the amnesia story?
Rafe: Daniel said it could happen. I don't know, this whole thing, it just doesn't smell right.
Hope: You still don't think he's the killer?
Rafe: I don't know, what do you think? You saw him, you think he's lying?
Hope: Honestly, I don't know. But he's a DiMera. Although Abigail just pointed out that it's terribly unfair to assume he's lying just because of his last name, and you know what? She's right. The sins of the fathers and all that--
Rafe: Yeah, yeah. It's a good point.
Rafe: Well, it's a great night before your wedding, isn't it?
Hope: I couldn't miss this.
Rafe: [Laughs] Hope Aiden's ready for a cop wife.
Hope: He knows what he's getting into. Oh, speaking of which, I should call him and let him know where I am.
Hope: Hey, hi, honey. I'm at the hospital. Chad's conscious again, which means I'll be working very late tonight. So don't worry if you can't reach me, okay? And I will be at the altar tomorrow, waiting for you. I hope you get some sleep. Okay, bye.
Rafe: What, is Aiden worried you're gonna stand him up?
Hope: I don't know. You know, thanks to you guys, he got so plastered tonight that...he-- he tried to cancel the wedding himself.
Rafe: What? Wait, wait, hold on a sec. We didn't say anything to him. Are you serious, though, he really tried to pull the plug?
Hope: No, no, it wasn't that he was getting cold feet, it was more like-- well, he was feeling vulnerable, like he wouldn't be--couldn't be a good husband to me.
Rafe: He's not serious, though, I mean, he's-- really? He's not really thinking about backing out, is he?
Hope: No, it's just like I said it was, it's-- he's really hard on himself sometimes. He starts thinking crazy things like he's--maybe he's not good enough for me.
Rafe: Well, who is? I can't think of anyone.
Hope: That's very kind of you to say, but it's not true. He is. We're gonna be great together.
Marlena: Like mother, like daughter. You know, I always wanted to have more in common with Sami, I just never thought it would be wanting revenge against Stefano.
John: Can't blame her, Doc.
Marlena: No. But I have learned that nothing ever comes of it. And she has children who need her.
Eric: Well, she's on a mission, no matter what we think. You going somewhere?
Marlena: Uh, no, no, I'm not. John is. Shouldn't you be heading to the airport?
John: [Sighs] I'll make a few phone calls, see what I can find out about Sami. So long, Eric.
Eric: Yeah, be careful.
Eric: ISA business?
Marlena: Yes, of course.
Eric: You didn't say anything about being alone right now.
Marlena: I didn't know. He just walked in with a bag packed.
Eric: I'm sorry.
Marlena: You know, it was always what I was afraid of. He would just seem to disappear without warning. You know, I-I didn't want to take him back... because of that sort of thing happening.
Eric: You don't let anyone talk you into something you don't want to do. Like mother, like daughter.
Marlena: You're right. It doesn't mean that I can't worry about him... and Sami.
Justin: Daniel, what's the word?
Daniel: The ct scan is normal, Chad doesn't appear to have any permanent injuries.
Justin: Ah, which means this so-called amnesia is bull?
Daniel: I wouldn't say that.
Justin: Is he well enough to move?
Daniel: I would like to keep him overnight for observation.
Justin: Let me rephrase this. Is there any legitimate medical reason that requires Chad to be observed in a hospital room rather than by an MD in lock-up?
Justin: Great. Let's get him downtown. Go ahead, Rafe.
Chad: What's going on?
Rafe: Well, we're taking you to the station.
Justin: To lock-up.
Chad: This is crazy. I didn't do anything.
Justin: You sure about that?
Chad: I want my lawyer.
Rafe: You can call him on the way downtown.
Hope: You need to get dressed.
Chad: How am I supposed to do that with handcuffs on?
Justin: It can be done.
Chad: Are you speaking from experience?
Justin: Get dressed.
Chad: Abby, I didn't kill anyone. You have to believe me.
Aiden: What? Yeah? Oh, yeah, I'm still here. I'll be right there.
Rafe: Process him.
Chad: What you guys are doing, it's a terrible mistake.
Justin: Yeah, you go with that defense. Book him.
Chad: This is wrong. I want my lawyer.
Hope: You didn't have to come all the way down here for me.
Aiden: No, no, no, I didn't. Chad called me.
Hope: I thought you weren't representing him anymore.
Aiden: I wasn't, but he called me like that never happened, so.
Aiden: Yeah, what-- what's going on?
Hope: Oh, we're booking Chad for the murders.
Aiden: What? All right, well, I-I'll have to deal with it.
Hope: Are you sure? I mean, you were pretty drunk just a while ago.
Aiden: Yeah, no, I got a little sleep in, I-I'm good. Where's Chad now?
Hope: He's being processed. I'll go see how long it'll be.
Aiden: Thanks. [Groans] Oh.
Rafe: Well, look who it is. How's your head?
Aiden: Uh, it's still attached, damn it.
Aiden: Had a lot of water, some aspirin. I'm good, though.
Rafe: Heard you got a case of the cold feet.
Aiden: What? Hope told you that?
Rafe: Yeah, yeah. Don't hurt her. Don't even think about it, okay? It won't end well for you.
Eric: I'll let you know if I hear from Sami, if she contacts--
Marlena: Don't go.
Eric: You all right?
Marlena: I'm worried about you. You lost your nephew. You lost a woman you really cared about.
Eric: Mom, we've all lost.
Marlena: Is that what you tell yourself? So it feels like everybody else has lost more than you have?
Eric: Mom, my life has been full of people, and I'm not just talking about family. I'm talking about my parishioners, students at the school, people who really needed me.
Marlena: Honey, you have been through too much already.
Eric: Yeah, but Sami, I mean, she's lost her husband and a child.
Marlena: That is as tough as it gets.
Eric: Now she wants to put it all at Stefano's feet. If Chad killed will, don't you think he should answer for it?
Aiden: So I need to see the full complaint and arrest warrant.
Justin: You were removed as Chad's attorney of record.
Aiden: Apparently Chad doesn't think so.
Justin: Oh. So he's really playing it out? Chad's going for the whole amnesia defense. Fair warning, it's not gonna work. Nothing is going to save him.
Aiden: Hmm. We'll see. Is arraignment set?
Justin: As soon as I get him into court.
Aiden: Excuse me, officer, I need to speak with my client.
You can use the interrogation room.
Justin: Do you need to recuse?
Hope: Excuse me?
Justin: You're marrying Chad's defense attorney. Are we open to a conflict of interest charge?
Hope: Aiden and I never discuss work, so the answer is no, you will not have a problem from me.
Justin: What about you, Rafe? What do you think? Do you believe this whole amnesia bull?
Rafe: It's not for me to evaluate. My job is to give you evidence in the case.
Justin: That's true.
Aiden: Are you sure this is okay with your father?
Chad: Why wouldn't it be? I need a lawyer.
Aiden: Chad, your father fired me from your case. I--
Chad: What case? Why did I have a lawyer?
Aiden: You've been the only suspect in these crimes ever since Serena mason was killed.
Chad: And she--she is? That's the redhead from the bar.
Aiden: Look at me. I am your lawyer. Whatever you tell me is confidential.
Aiden: You really don't remember?
Chad: I sat next-- I sat down next to that woman at club TBD. I ordered us both a round. That's--that's the last thing I remember.
Aiden: Oh, boy.
Chad: What? Jennings, I didn't kill anyone.
Aiden: As far as you can remember?
Chad: Yeah. I mean, no, I-I couldn't do that.
Aiden: They have evidence, Chad. Circumstantial, not enough to arrest you before you attacked Ben, but it's evidence.
Chad: Why did I attack Ben?
Aiden: I have no idea.
Chad: But they're sure I did it?
Aiden: They found you in Ben's apartment. He was roughed up, you were knocked out.
Chad: It's--it's gone. Like, I try to remember and I just--I-I hit a wall, like it was never there. Why can't I remember?
Aiden: What did the doctor say?
Chad: That it happens. My memories might come back, or not, like I might go to prison, or not. If Justin has his way, I'll get the--I'll get the death penalty. When did he decide that I was such a monster? Why is this happening?
Aiden: Listen to me, listen to me. You need to stay calm. You need to stay focused. Let me take care of you. That is my job. I'm gonna make sure that you do not go down for this, but most important, you have to keep your mouth shut.
Ben: I'm so glad you're home. I'm sorry, I don't want to fight.
Abigail: I don't want to fight either, Ben.
Ben: I'm sorry.
Abigail: I know. I heard your messages.
Ben: Why didn't you call me back? At least text, I was worried.
Abigail: I didn't get the messages until I was on my way home, and... I was in the middle of something.
Abigail: Chad woke up.
Ben: Wow, that's... surprising. So did he finally own up to it all?
Abigail: No, he doesn't remember anything.
Ben: What do you mean "anything"?
Abigail: I mean he has no memory of anything that happened before the murders started, and he swears he's innocent.
Ben: Even though he doesn't remember anything?
Abigail: Justin thought he was guilty too. They arrested him and they took him to the police station.
Ben: How do you know all this?
Abigail: Because I was there. I had to...get some papers from work, and so I just happened to be there.
Ben: So where are the papers? The ones you needed in the middle of the night?
Abigail: I left them in the car.
Ben: So we fought, and you ran straight to the hospital to see Chad. You're still obsessed with him. I knew it. We should've left town the first time I wanted to, or maybe the 10th, 20th.
Abigail: I was willing to leave town, then you're the one that changed your mind.
Ben: Because I believed you, Abigail, you said you were over Chad.
Abigail: Well, so did you. You said you were over him too, but you know what, Ben? Your--your jealousy--
Ben: My jealousy? Am I making it up? Tell me why you went to the hospital to see him. We fight, and the first thing you go to do is run and see the guy who tried to kill me. Did you try to take his hand and tell him you know he's innocent?
Abigail: No. No.
Ben: Huh? No?
Abigail: No, I didn't. Of course I didn't do that.
Ben: Oh, I bet it was the sound of your voice that brought him back.
Abigail: That's ridiculous, Ben.
Ben: Why did you go see him then?
Abigail: Because I... I went to see him because I don't--I-- because he's not evil, and I-I--he's--
Ben: The guy tried to kill me, and you saw it with your own eyes!
Abigail: I didn't see it.
Ben: You didn't see it.
Abigail: I didn't see it.
Ben: Oh, no, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, you didn't see it. You saw me on the ground, knocked out, beaten up, and him lying right there, no denying it, but still you defend him.
Abigail: I'm not! I'm not defending him, Ben, I'm not. I-I'm just trying to understand.
Ben: You know what I understand? You don't want to let go of Chad DiMera. You never did.
Abigail: Ben. Wait. [Screams] [Sobs]
Hope: Hey. Happy wedding eve, huh?
Aiden: Yeah, at least we know it won't be dull.
Hope: Don't take this the wrong way.
Hope: Do you want to postpone?
Hope: Look, I know how much you love you me and I love you, and we both very much want to be married, but-- and we will.
Hope: But I mean, there's really no rush, especially with everything that's going on tonight.
Aiden: No. Baby, listen to me. I can't wait to marry you. The sooner the better.
Hope: That's the right answer. I'll see you tomorrow.
Aiden: Yeah, right.
Marlena: Come by more often.
Eric: Let's have dinner tomorrow night.
Marlena: I'd love that.
Eric: Good, and let me know if you hear anything.
Marlena: In fact, if I hear from Sami, I'll have her call you because she will listen to you before she listens to me.
Marlena: Oh, honey.
Eric: All right, take care.
Justin: Sorry to show up so late.
Eric: No worries. Hey, I'll talk to you later.
Eric: See you later, Justin.
Justin: Uh-huh. I need your help.
Hope: Lab reports?
Rafe: Yeah. Mason murder, Larson murder, Horton murder. God, that's still so hard to say.
Rafe: Chain of custody affidavits attached to the front of each file.
Hope: We should have them in one report to attach to the charges, just in case.
Rafe: Stop it. Would you go home?
Rafe: You're getting married tomorrow, okay? Just--
Hope: Hey, you know, it's so late already. Won't get any sleep anyway. It'll be a lot easier if we do it together.
Chad: This is a mistake, Rafe. Hope, this is a mistake. Ah! A mistake.
