Chad: Hey, hey, you okay?
Abigail: Yeah, I'm fine. Fine.
Chad: No, you're not fine. You're shaking.
Abigail: I'm fine.
Chad: No, no, no, you got to go to the hospital.
Abigail: No. I'm fine. I have somewhere I have to go.
Chad: Where? Where do you have--
Abigail: I have to go to Ben's. I need to go to his apartment because I need to get my stuff and I need to get my son's things and I need to do that so that this nightmare can be over for both of us.
Steve: Help me out here, sweetness. Your turn to say something. Anything at all. Even if it's you need more time or... you can't stand the sight of me anymore. I hope it's not that. Your face is telling me I kind of underwhelmed you. Okay. [Speaking Italian] Huh? Proposals sound more romantic in another language, right? Hmm? How about French? [Speaking French] Huh? Or Spanish. [Speaking Spanish] Bottom line is, I love you and I want to marry you in any language. So say yes. Or va bene or oui or si. I'm running out of languages here, sweetness. Trust me, you do not want to hear my Bulgarian.
Malcolm: Julie, forgive me. Just one. Mmm. Uh... hmm.
It's all there-- $500,000.
Hope: Thank you. I'm sure I can count on your discretion.
Of course, but this certainly is an unusual transaction.
Hope: This is my business, understood? No one else needs to know about this.
Steve: Okay. I guess I should have planned some big romantic gesture. I don't know, a trip to Paris or a moonlit motorcycle ride up the Amalfi coast, huh? We will do that, baby. Someday, and more. But... right now, I just want you to know I never want to be away from you again. I'm here now, for good. I'm putting down roots. I love you, Kayla. I love you with everything that I am. What am I? I'm not whole without you. I need you by my side. I want you to be my wife again. But this time, I want it to be forever.
Kayla: You asked, and you deserve an answer.
Malcolm: If you'll excuse me, I have somewhere to go.
You do, indeed. You're wanted.
Malcolm: Yes, well, it'll have to wait. I have a pressing engagement if you don't mind.
Maybe I wasn't clear. This wasn't a request.
Rafe: Who was that? He doesn't look happy.
Hope: This really not a good time, Rafe.
Rafe: You don't pick up when I call. You don't return my messages.
Hope: I think we've said enough to ea-- I really have to get going.
Rafe: No, no, no, no, no. Hold on a sec. You may have said all you need to say, but I haven't.
Hope: It isn't a good time. I just told you that.
Rafe: Mm. Well, I won't take long. Hope, I'm worried about you. As a friend. Not just because Bo asked me to look out for you. Listen, I'm not going to stand here and pretend that I understand everything-- everything that you're going through. Yes, I've been through some rough times and I know that it's hard to tell right from wrong and, you know, your whole perspective, it can become skewed, you--
Hope: Stop psychoanalyzing me, would you?
Kayla: You know, that was very romantic. And definitely spontaneous and wonderfully multi-lingual. But I...
Steve: But what?
Kayla: It's just too soon.
Steve: Well, at least I didn't get slapped.
Kayla: Not even close. I mean, you must have noticed. I mean, just getting to this point with you and me, it's-- with us, it's just taken weeks. [Sighs] God knows you are the most impossible man to say no to. But I just feel like that's what I need to do right now. Because I--I want to think in the long term and I want... I want every step forward for us to be a confident one. No slips, no falls. No rushing.
Steve: Okay. Well, I didn't hear a "no" in there. So I guess I'm still in the running for a yes?
Kayla: You--you are relentless, Mr. Johnson.
Steve: I'm in love. I am in a deep sea of love.
Kayla: You should quit while you're ahead.
Steve: When it comes to you, never.
Abigail: Uh, Chad. No, I--
Chad: No, no, no what?
Abigail: No. If you're taking me here because you think I need a drink because that will give me courage to go over there--
Chad: Whoa, who said anything about a drink? You're gonna need something a lot stronger than that. [Claps] Come on. Hello, hi. Hi. Party of two. DiMera.
Here you go, sir. Two milkshakes.
Chad: Thank you. Mmm. Well, I called ahead. This is the town's best-kept Zen-inducing secret: A few sips of these puppies, you will have the strength and the courage to take on anything that comes your way. So go on, dig in. I don't have all day, woman. Mmm. Mmm! That's good. I feel strong. Is it working?
Abigail: I, um, mm-hmm. Not quite yet. I think it has to kick in a little bit.
Chad: Okay, we'll give it time. Mmm.
Abigail: Listen. Chad, I really, appreciate this, you taking me here and this gesture, um, but unfortunately I don't think all the milkshakes in the world could really fix what I'm feeling right now.
Chad: Okay, well... would it help to talk about it then?
Chad: Ben... Ben, Ben!
Ben: My baby. My baby, and I would never hurt him. You always lie to me!
Abigail: No, Ben! [Screaming] [Gasps] Am I going to die in here?
Chad: Hey, hey, stay...
Abigail: I'm trapped in here. I can't move my arm.
Chad: Okay, okay, look at me. Abby, look at me, all right? I'm right here with you, okay? We're going to get out of this together, I promise you. Okay? Can you just...
Abigail: It was hell being trapped alone with him... realizing he wasn't who I thought he was. I had a feeling in the pit of my stomach when I knew he had actually lost his mind. He had actually killed people, and that I could be next. Why didn't I know sooner? Why didn't I see it, you know? I was just so...
Chad: Shh, stop, stop.
Abigail: Stupid and checked-out.
Chad: Stop. The only thing that you are...guilty of is wanting to love him. You were having his baby.
Abigail: My baby. I hate myself for bringing my son into the world that way, Chad.
Chad: Abby. Don't put yourself through this. You don't have to go there. Better yet, stay here. Let me go there. I'll get your stuff and I'll bring it back to you.
Abigail: No. I need to do it. I have to. I need to do this. I need closure.
Chad: Closure is... is overrated. Ben's gone. He's out of your life. Going there to that apartment where he put you through hell-- I don't get it. I mean, what's the point? You've suffered enough. There's nothing that cannot be replaced. Now, Abby, I know that it's hard but you just--you have to move on.
Abigail: There's something else.
Abigail: In a way, I don't want to forget what happened to me, Chad, because...
Chad: I don't understand.
Abigail : I know. There was also this really positive change that happened. You know, this really good thing that happened because it opened my eyes.
Chad: I still don't--I don't understand what you're saying.
Abigail: You, Chad. You saved me. And that's the part I never want to forget, and I never will.
[Knocking at door]
Joey: Dad? You there?
Steve: Well... okay.
[Knocking at door]
Steve: Yeah, coming.
Steve: Hey, Joe.
Joey: Whoa. When you told me mom had forgiven you, I didn't think...
Steve: You didn't think what?
Steve: Okay. That's all right. Let me tell you what I'm doing. I'm checking out of this place tonight, and I'm moving back in with you and your mom who I love with all my heart.
Joey: That's great. That's really great.
[Soft instrumental music]
Ava: Mmm. Okay. Time to get going.
Rafe: I'm not trying to psychoanalyze you. Just trying to protect you, have your back. Isn't that what partners are supposed to do?
Hope: Yeah, but I'm not your partner anymore, and anyway, I got suspended, remember?
Rafe: Still friends though, right?
Hope: Look, I--okay, I get it, I understand, okay? You think this--is urgent and you need to trust me because what I'm doing is much more urgent.
Rafe: Well, what exactly is it that you're doing? Obviously it's not work-related because you're off of the force, so what is it? Where do you have to be? What do you have to do?
Hope: I don't owe you any answers, Rafe.
Rafe: Okay. Okay, you're right. You're right. I'm totally out of line and I guess there's no stopping you.
Hope: Thank you.
Rafe: Yeah. Let me help you with this thing here.
Hope: No, Rafe. Let it go. Rafe, Rafe.
The humble potato.
Abigail: When I was fighting for my life, Thomas's life, I needed something to get me through, something to hold onto. So I imagined that you would come in and... rescue us. You would rescue me and my son. Whenever I thought about it, whenever I let my mind go to that place, I just felt so calm. And so peaceful. So sane. You gave me courage. When I first started dating Ben, I knew I couldn't really be in love with him. I knew it deep down in my heart because I never stopped being in love with you. You were the one I wanted to be with. I couldn't hide it. I felt so guilty.
Chad: You were guilty about what?
Abigail: Because, how much I felt for you and how badly I wanted you, and...[Sighs] How absolutely heartbroken I was that I couldn't be with you. I felt guilty because I feel like I was giving you hope when I shouldn't have been.
Chad: Never feel guilty for giving a man hope.
Abigail: The thing is, I knew. I always knew that you were the one I was supposed to be with. Not him. Chad... why didn't I see that coming?
Chad: No one saw it coming.
Abigail: You did.
Chad: Not until it was too late.
Abigail: Oh, god. I lived with him. It was right in front of my face. I saw him every single day, and I just... didn't see it, you know? I just feel like, I don't know, what's wrong with me and I just make such a mess of everything.
Chad: Nothing--look at me-- nothing is wrong with you.
Chad: You are a good and loving person.
Abigail: I was living with a murderer. Really, I was living with someone who--who thought nothing about taking people's lives. [Sighs] I just need--need some air. I've got to get out of here.
Chad: Abby. Abby, stop.
Hope: I know damn well that wasn't an accident.
Rafe: What in god's name is going on with you, hope?
Hope: Get out of my house, Rafe. Stop playing cop with me. Go find a real criminal, would you, and leave me the heck alone?
Rafe: No, no, I am not leaving, because I care about you, damn it! Look. I know what I said before was... okay, I went too far. But now the walls between us have gone up even higher and you know why, so let's just talk about this, please?
Hope: No, Rafe.
Rafe: No, I am going to talk about it, damn it. It's my fault. I shouldn't have said that I loved you. Now, even though I meant it, you--you just misunderstood me. I was saying something--listen to me, hope. With everything that has happened, in this town and to you, the pain and the grief? Well, you checked out on me. And everyone else. And all I was doing, I was just trying to reach you, that's all, okay? I just want you to let me in.
Hope: Don't. Don't, okay?
Rafe: Let me finish. Would you just let me finish? All I want to tell you is that I'm your friend. I'm your friend. I'm here for you. What, you think I was such a damn fool after what happened with Aiden and Bo...
Hope: Please don't.
Rafe: That I would possibly think--no...
Hope: You don't need--
Rafe: I do.
Hope: You don't!
Rafe: I do because I am watching you, and your damn life is spiraling out of control. Trust me, you need me.
Steve: Well, son, got to hand it to you. When I came back to Salem, I was determined to put our family back together, but you really put the pedal to the metal. Parent trapping us. We did not see that coming.
Kayla: And we're touched that you wanted to help us. However...
Joey: I had a feeling there was a however coming.
Kayla: Yeah, well, what you did, while your heart might have been in the right place, you know, it's a little scary how far you'd go and how good you were at pulling our strings.
Steve: Yeah, our kid could have a career in politics.
Kayla: Joey. You can't move people around like chess pieces. We're not characters in some video game. No more games, you understand?
Joey: I mean, now that we all have what we want, yeah, okay.
Kayla: All right, I'm going to go change so I'm not late for my consult. And you guys maybe work out what you're going to make me for breakfast tomorrow for our first family breakfast.
Steve: We'll get right on that.
Steve: One more. [Sighs] Feeling pretty proud of yourself, right?
Joey: You're welcome.
Steve: Mmm. Mm-mm. There won't be any thank yous. Who'd you partner up with? We both know you didn't do this alone. [Clears throat]
Ava: No. No, don't worry about me. [Coughs] No, I'm fine, really, I just-- I just need to rest. [Coughs]
[Dramatic string glissandos]
Joey: What do you mean, who did I partner up with? Why would you ask that? Why wouldn't you think I did this on my own?
Steve: So you're telling me that all those text messages and luring us to the hospital, locking us in that storage closet--
Joey: All me. Besides, who would I know who's crazy enough to mess around with an ISA agent? And the chief of staff at Salem's top hospital?
Steve: So it was you and only you.
Joey: Yeah. It was.
Steve: Okay. You say you flew solo on this, I'm going to take you at your word.
Joey: Okay. Are we done with my debrief now? 'Cause didn't mom mention something about breakfast supplies? I call dibs on those blueberry pancakes you used to make us.
Steve: Oh, no, hold up. Did you really think I wasn't going to say anything about you messing around with drugs?
Hope: I'm spiraling?
Really? So what, you have some special insight into me that lets you see that?
Rafe: Oh, for god's sake, hope, you played Russian roulette with a man's life.
Hope: It was a tactic!
Rafe: You took a loaded gun, you took it to his chest and you pulled the trigger.
Hope: I wanted him to know and think that there wasn't anything I wouldn't do to get the information that I needed. I was praying to god that he would be gullible enough to fall for it, but my god, I never thought you would.
Rafe: Wow. Hope: You know? [Closes case] We're done. You said your piece and I said mine and there's nothing left to say.
Rafe: Well, what about your daughter? Hmm? You care about what happens to her?
Chad: Abby, would you just stop? Hey, come on, talk to me.
Abigail: Okay, Chad. You want me to talk to you? You saved me. You saved me. You got me through a terrible ordeal, you did. But I feel like I failed you and a lot of other people because I didn't see what was right in front of me. I didn't see that I was living with--was engaged to a murderer. A sick and twisted person. Maybe I could have stopped it somehow, you know? Maybe--no, I--if I would have just stopped and maybe just paid attention to notice that something was seriously wrong--
Chad: Just stop, Abby, don't. Don't. None of this is on you. Ben snapped. He lost his mind.
Abigail: Yes, because he was jealous of us, because I slept with you and I lied to him about it.
Chad: Okay, so he was jealous. Most people, when they get jealous, they just get angry. But he was mentally ill, so he lost his mind. It's not your fault or my fault. Ben was a mental time bomb. He was sick. Whatever made him that way happened way before us, whether it was genetics or his messed-up childhood with Clyde. I'm sorry about Serena. And Paige and will. But if it hadn't have been us, something would have set him off eventually.
Abigail: I wish I could believe that. I wish I could know that for sure.
Chad: Well, I'm sure. I'll be sure for the both of us.
Abby. Please, he's... he's gone. He's out of your life. Stop torturing yourself about what happened. Look forward. Focus on what you have right now. You have your beautiful son. You have your life back.
[Abigail exhales sharply]
Abby: And if you want, you have me. Come here.
Abby: I'll never let anyone hurt you again. I meant it when I said I never stopped loving you. I never will.
Abigail: Oh, Chad.
Steve: You know, your mom took a pretty hard line about the end not justifying the means. I was a little more lenient on that score as you know. But you, son, staged a medical emergency and got yourself taken to the hospital. Now, that was not only irresponsible, that could have been deadly.
Joey: Dad, it's not like I was trying to get high. I just took a little bit, just enough to knock me out.
Steve: Just enough to knock you--who prescribed this "just enough"? A drug dealer? The internet? You get it off the internet?
Joey: Okay, I get it. I get it, I screwed up, okay? I didn't think it through and I'm sorry. I just... I just--I really wanted you and mom back together, and I got carried away. But I'm done. No more games. And definitely no more drugs of any kind.
Steve: Good. And you're grounded.
Steve: For a month.
Steve: It's written in stone. I'm holding you to it.
Kayla: Did you guys get everything settled?
Joey: Except the terms of my release.
Steve: No, I think we got everything handled, right? We're just negotiating a suitable punishment.
Steve: Yeah. Since you want me and your mom back together so much, you're gonna have to witness a little bit of this all the time.
Kayla: Witness what? [Giggles]
Steve: How 'bout that? Hmm?
Chad: I don't want you to hold anything in with me. Ever. It's over now. You are safe. The baby's safe. So when you're ready, I can go and get your things, or you can take me up on my offer and we can get all new things. It's--
Abigail: No new things. I can do this. I want to go back and get my stuff. Get little Tommy's stuff. Not that there's that much of it, but I--I feel like I can do this thanks to you.
Hope: What about Ciara? What's wrong?
Rafe: Part of the reason I came here was because she called me. She's worried about you.
Hope: Don't you think I know that?
Rafe: Yeah, but do you know how much she needs you? Who else does she have? Oh, wait, that's right, you. But all you're worried about is getting revenge on the people who hurt Bo and getting out of here and taking this suitcase full of money to god knows where. I want you to ask yourself this. Is what you're doing, is it going to help her, is it going to make her life better? Because if the answer is no, then you need to stay here.
Hope: Stop lecturing me. I'm not-- I love my daughter. I love her with all my heart and I resent the implication that I'm failing her. Everything I do is for my daughter. You don't think she has a stake in this? You don't think she wants justice for her father?
Rafe: Justice or vengeance?
Hope: I'm going.
Hope: Don't follow me!
Chad: Come on. I'll take you.
Abigail: No. Thank you, but... I feel like I can do this on my own.
I feel like I could do anything. And I really miss that feeling. And I really want it back. I'm not a weak person, Chad.
He didn't beat me. No one can.
Chad: It's that milkshake, wasn't it? [Laughs] I'm sorry.
Abigail: [Giggles] [Cries]
Abigail: Chad, I need you to know that...
I never stopped loving you, either.
Kayla: Guess you better get packing, huh?
Steve: Hmm, yeah, I guess I better. Well, I'll, uh, see you at home.
Steve: Man, I like saying that.
Kayla: I like hearing it.
Steve: Sweetness, um, what do you say we take a weekend away from all this right now? To do, you know, more of this. Hmm?
Kayla: I know what you're doing, and it's not going to work.
Steve: What do you mean, what I'm doing? I'm just asking you away for a romantic weekend, that's all.
Kayla: Yeah, right. That's all.
Steve: I don't know what you think I'm up to.
Kayla: Oh, come on. You're going in for the kill. Come on, admit it. You get me all mushy watching you do your dad thing, and then you invite me for a romantic weekend away because you think that maybe you can seal the deal and--
Kayla: I won't be able to turn down your proposal. But you know what?
Kayla: That might just backfire, mister.
Steve: How could it backfire?
Kayla: Well, why would I accept your proposal if that would mean you would stop being your best, most adorable, most charming self? Inviting me away for romantic weekends and everything. Ooh. I'll see you. [Laughs]
Kayla: At home.
Steve: Oh, yeah. I'll see you at home, baby.
Steve: I'm coming home, sweetness
Ava: I can do this. I know I can.
Lani: Hey, you. What's going on? You got that look.
Rafe: Yeah, well, I was following someone and she gave me the slip.
Rafe: My... ex-partner.
Ciara: Hello? Is someone there?
Hope: Oh, my God. No. Ciara. Ciara!
