Marlena: Mm. Okay. What time does Claire's plane land?
Belle: Uh, late afternoon, assuming she doesn't decide to stay with Shawn for Christmas... or forever.
Marlena: That's why you couldn't sleep last night.
Belle: Mm, and here I thought I was walking around on little cat feet.
Marlena: [Laughs] Honey, she's gonna get through this just fine, and so are you.
Belle: I hope so. There's just a lot rattling around in my head right now. Any news on Sami?
Marlena: Well, John has done a thorough search through his remaining friends at the ISA.
Marlena: Not a whisper. So it makes sense to me that Stefano will never find her, or the money she took.
André: Father, was Higgins able to unload any of the stocks and bonds?
Stefano: At a discount.
André: Oh, be patient, Father. We're going to get our cash back.
Stefano: Oh, yes, oh, yes. A mere 500 million.
André: As I said, the key is the man's assistant, and once Chad hooks up with Belle Brady, she's gonna sing us a happy little tune.
Abigail: No, no, go back to sleep if you want. Really, it's only just a little past 7:00.
Chad: I'm fine.
Abigail: You sure? Well, I just spoke to the nurse, and she said Thomas is doing really well and that he had a very restful night.
Chad: That's great.
Abigail: Mm-hm. Yeah. So did I, thanks to you. Chad, I feel like you gave me my confidence back. I feel safe... again.
Chad: What do you say we do a repeat? Tonight?
Abigail: I say, that sounds perfect.
Chad: Come here.
Lani: You said you wanted this right away.
Rafe: Ballistics on the gun that was used to kill Malcolm?
Hope: Thank you, thank you so much.
Jennifer: Here, that's no problem.
Hope: I know that it's way too early, but I'm just-- I'm really in a bind right now, and I normally would never do this, especially after what happened to Abigail and the baby.
Jennifer: No, listen to me. Abigail is fine. She's fine. The baby's fine, okay? But you're not. Tell me what is going on. What's wrong? Let me help you.
Chad: You heading to the hospital?
Abigail: Yes, I am. It's time to feed my little man.
Chad: Well, I will walk you. Wanted to check in with Dr. Evans. See if she can set up some sessions for me.
Abigail: Oh. You gonna try to get some of those memories back?
Chad: Yes. You know, I keep having these-- these huge blanks, and they just go back so damn far. I do remember one thing, though. A certain someone always had faith in me, always said I was innocent. Stuck by my side, no matter what. Said she loved me.
Chad: Was that you?
Rafe: Hey. Listen, you said you'd come down to the station this morning and answer some questions. Any idea when that'll be?
Hope: I'm on my way right now.
Jennifer: Who was that?
Hope: That was-- it was Rafe. I need to get to the station and take care of something, which is why I asked you to come because I--
Jennifer: Yeah, no, that's fine. Just take your time. You're good.
Hope: I needed you because I don't want Chase and Ciara to wake up alone this morning. Someone needs to be here because I--
Jennifer: Yeah, because of everything that happened. Please, I understand. It's okay.
Hope: I don't know-- I'm not sure when I'll be able to get back, though.
Jennifer: That's fine, but I thought that you were off duty for now, Hope.
Hope: I still have to deal with this one case. Frankly, solving it is just about all that's holding me together right now. Listen, when Ciara comes down, she may seem a little on edge.
Jennifer: Yeah. She's really grieving. It was so hard for her to lose Bo. And Chase hasn't had it any easier.
Hope: No. So if you could please stay...
Jennifer: Yes, I'm here. I'm not going anywhere as long as you need me.
Hope: It means so much. I love you guys.
Jennifer: I love you. What--
Hope: Never forget that.
Nurse: No, no, Thomas is doing fine. They're just running follow-up tests to measure his progress.
Abigail: Okay. So do you have any idea when I'll be able to take him home?
Nurse: I'm not sure. Tomorrow, the next day... as soon as he doesn't need the incubator. That's always key. He's actually in terrific shape for a preemie. The woman who delivered him did an excellent job. Let me see if they're finished with those tests.
Chad: Hey. You okay?
Abigail: Yeah, it's just she mentioned, um... Wendy, the woman who delivered my baby.
Chad: Right. Hey, maybe we should do something for her family.
Abigail: Yeah. God, she was so... brave. So kind. I begged him not to hurt her. I begged him.
Chad: Hey, hey, hey. The main thing for you to focus on right now is Thomas, okay? Making sure everything's all right with your little boy. I'll have somebody check on Wendy's family in Mammoth Falls, and we'll figure out something we can do to help them remember her. All right?
Abigail: Okay, all set.
Chad: Okay. I'll walk you down.
Abigail: All right, okay. Thank you. Oh, good luck with Marlena. Okay.
Belle: I think it's gonna be a tough Christmas for Claire.
Marlena: You know what, she will have you there to help her through it. She'll be fine.
[Knocking at door]
Chad: Dr. Evans, I was--hi. Sorry, I didn't realize you were with someone.
Marlena: No, it's all right. This is my daughter, Belle Brady.
Marlena: Chad DiMera.
Chad: It's a pleasure.
Belle: Nice to meet you. I'm gonna go, yeah... 'cause, you know, early shopper gets the worm. Chad, it's nice to meet you.
Chad: Yeah, same here.
Marlena: See you very soon.
Marlena: So what brings you by?
Chad: Well, I, uh... I was hoping that you would possibly work with me again. More hypnosis. Today, tomorrow, whenever. I really need to remember what happened to me.
Marlena: Oh, well, I have a patient in a few minutes, but I'm free the hour after that. Can you come back?
Chad: Yeah, hour-- hour, yeah. Okay. Sure, yeah. Thank you.
Ciara: Mom? Mom? Mom!
Jennifer: Oh, hi, honey! Good morning, sweetie. How are you? Listen, your mom just had to go down to the station for a little bit, so she wanted me to be here for you, just... to make you some breakfast. And you're in luck because she has all the ingredients for Aunt Maggie's wonderful buttermilk banana pancakes. Sound tempting?
Ciara: Seriously? You came all the way over here to make us pancakes?
Ciara: No way. There's something wrong.
Rafe: Hey, Hope. Thanks for coming in.
Hope: Yeah, well, thanks for giving me a choice. Nothing like being questioned about a murder with my daughter standing right there.
Rafe: Yeah. How's she doing?
Hope: She's hanging in there.
Rafe: Good. Have a seat. coffee?
Hope: No, I'm okay.
Rafe: All right then. Let's start with the same question I asked you last night. Where were you when Dr. Seth Malcolm was murdered?
Hope: I did not kill Malcolm.
Rafe: That's not what I asked you. Where were you when he was killed?
Ciara: Mom! Mom!
Hope: What the hell do you want? Let my daughter go! Hasn't she suffered enough?
Rafe: Well, something's obviously on your mind. My guess is it's what happened last night. Hope...talk to me.
Hope: I can't tell you where I was. You're investigating one of your own now. Internal Affairs will be watching you like a hawk. You cut one corner... they'll take your badge.
Rafe: I'm not worried about I.A. I'm worried about you. I can't protect you unless you give me something to work with, Hope.
Hope: I'm sorry.
Rafe: I'm an eyewitness, you remember? I walked in this damn room while you had a gun to Malcolm's chest, and you pulled the trigger, Hope.
Hope: I didn't kill him then, or any time after that. I didn't do it.
Rafe: All right. Well, that's good to hear. But unfortunately I have a report here that says the gun registered in your name is the gun that killed Malcolm. So you want to start talking now?
Jennifer: Your mom didn't tell me that anything was wrong, honey, it was just something about an old case that she needs to go over with Rafe, that's all. Hey, good morning.
Jennifer: Hope had to step out for a little while, but she asked me to come over and just make some breakfast for you guys.
Chase: Yeah, I heard you telling Ciara.
Ciara: Yeah, we're going down to the square to decorate the tree this morning.
Chase: Finally, my last two hours of community service.
Ciara: Oh, stop, you're gonna love it.
Jennifer: Okay, listen, I am gonna get on these pancakes for the two of you, okay?
Ciara: Just my cousin Jennifer. She might have Aunt Maggie's old recipe, but she's still not a good cook. What?
Chase: Um, I just, uh... you know, before? Okay, look. I... tried to kiss you, okay? And I'm sorry.
Ciara: Forget about it. We're good. Although it did kind of freak me out a little bit.
Rafe: Give me something so that I can protect you.
Hope: I can't, I-- I'm not the only one who needs protecting, Rafe.
Rafe: What? How deep does this go? Who else is involved?
Hope: I-I'm sorry.
Rafe: Don't do this. You are leaving me no choice.
Hope: I know.
Rafe: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a Court of Law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one...
Roman: All right, well let me know if you find anything I can go on.
Rafe: You understand these rights as they have been read to you?
Hope: I do. I'm under arrest for a murder I didn't commit.
Rafe: She gets one phone call to her attorney, and that's it.
Roman: What the hell is going on here?
Rafe: It was Hope's gun that killed Seth Malcolm, and she won't even offer an alibi. She left me no choice.
Roman: Well, damn it, I knew she wanted Malcolm to pay for torturing Bo, but seriously? She was that far over the edge?
Rafe: No. No way. Now this has "setup" written all over it, but she's hiding something-- something big-- and now we got to fall for the damn setup.
Belle: Hope? Is everything okay? Did Shawn call about something?
Hope: No, Shawn's fine. This is about me. Belle, I need help. More specifically, I need an attorney. All: Milk! Milk! Milk! Milk! Milk!
Chase: What do you mean, I freaked you out?
Ciara: Come on, Chase. You tried to kiss me. I-I can't even think of the word. It's kind of strange, I guess. It's just, you're like a brother to me, and we're really close, but--
Chase: I'm like a brother to you.
Chase: Well, I'm sorry. I guess I just... do stupid things sometimes. You know, it just kind of feels like my whole world is just upside down, you know, with everything going on.
Ciara: Yeah, I know. And most of it's bad. I mean, your dad, my dad, my mom. That's why I want us to be all right. I need my best friend, and that's you.
Chase: Okay. You, uh... you were gonna say something before, but you shut down. Did something happen that I should know about? Okay, Ciara, if I really am like your brother, then you need to share.
Ciara: Okay, God, I just need to tell somebody before I explode. Something bad did happen to me. Something really horrible.
Stefano: Ah, good morning.
Chad: Good morning. I came to pick up some things I left here.
André: Good timing. Father and I have something we need to discuss with you, as a family.
Chad: If it's about Sami stealing all your money, sorry, I still can't help you.
André: We think you can.
Chad: [Laughs] There's that "we" again. Father, I'm sorry, really, but you're gonna have to handle this on your own. I'm still tied up with Abigail and the baby.
André: Your family was robbed, and all you can think of is your girlfriend and some other man's baby?
Chad: What the hell do you expect me to do? Miraculously find Sami and convince her to give you your money back?
André: The key is Samantha's sister, Belle Brady. Have you met her?
Chad: Yes. Hello and good-bye about an hour ago.
André: Ah, she's lovely though, isn't she? Separated from her husband, I'm afraid. I think because she was unfaithful. But, you know, divorce is always an ugly thing for women. It's tough on them. They're vulnerable. They need new friends, affection.
Chad: Oh, my God. Leave it to you to think of a stunt like that.
André: Like what?
Chad: You want me to seduce Sami's sister so I can get her to tell me where Sami stashed the cash? Oh, talk about sleazy and disgusting, big brother.
André: Not if it works, damn it!
Hope: Belle, thank you. Thank you so much.
Belle: So this officer just said you were being arraigned in a few minutes. Wha--on what charges?
Hope: Murder. Lani, would you please explain what's going to happen first? I'll fill you in later.
Lani: Okay, the court opens in ten minutes. As soon as I hear that Judge Bowers is walking in, I'll come back and get you. We'll go through the rear entrance. Judge Bowers will be seated at the bench. You'll be arraigned. Then you'll go out the way you came in. Then the court opens to the public. That way, everything stays under the radar.
Belle: Oh, my God.
Hope: Please, thank Judge Bowers for me. He won't want this in the record.
Lani: Will do.
Hope: Thanks, Lani.
Belle: Hope, what in the world?
Hope: Well, I am, um... accused of killing a piece of scum called Seth Malcolm. One of my guns was found near the body. Ballistics says it's the murder weapon, but I don't have an alibi. But I swear, I didn't do it. I'm being framed here.
Hope: That's what I need to find out-- what we need to find out-- but first, you need to get me out on bail.
Belle: Okay, I feel like I just walked into, like, a buzz saw. All right, um...bail. Well, you have strong ties to the community, and you have--
Lani: It's time.
Belle: Oh, my God.
Chad: You know, André, I expect you to be evil pretty much all of the time, not stupid. Belle Brady would see through me in a heartbeat.
André: Oh, we don't expect you to score on the first date.
Chad: There's not gonna be any dates. No dates. I'm done talking about this. And I'm out of here.
André: Chad, please consider.
Chad: No. No. After everything Abigail and I have just gone through? After we finally have a chance together? A future? No. No. You made the mess. You clean it up.
Ciara: Then, after a while, they took me into a room where my mom was waiting, and all I could do was hug her and cry. God, I'm such a baby.
Chase: No, no, you're not. If you hadn't been scared, that would've been pretty stupid. But why would they do something like that? What was it that your mom had to say that was so important?
Ciara: She thinks it was connected to why my dad was held in some secret prison down in Mexico, but even she's not sure.
Chase: Wow, man. What a ride.
Ciara: Yeah. Chase, but you, like, you can't tell anybody, okay? I just needed to talk to somebody about what happened, but you cannot tell anybody.
Chase: Okay, no problem. I'm just--I'm glad that you're okay. And if you ever need to talk about this, or anything else, you just--you just let me know.
Jennifer: Okay, pancakes are ready, if you guys wanna come into the-- what's wrong?
Belle: I understand, Justin. That suits us too. Right, thanks. Bye. Okay, so Judge Bowers issued a gag order on everyone involved, so, for now, everything stays under the radar.
Hope: Great. All Ciara needs now is to hear her mother's been accused of murder.
Belle: Things do tend to leak, Hope. Maybe you should just be up-front with her.
Hope: One thing at a time. Right now, home. Let's go.
Rafe: Glad you made bail. I'm really sorry.
Hope: Thank you. And I definitely do appreciate the professional courtesy, but you still had a job to do. Now it's time for my attorney to do hers.
Abigail: You sure had a few-- a few rough first days, didn't you, buddy? Yeah. I am so sorry. Your first days on this earth were scary. But you know what? You have a mama who is never gonna let anything happen to you ever again. I promise. I'm gonna protect you. And I'm gonna keep you safe. And you're gonna have the happiest life ever.
Abigail: I know you're not gonna have a daddy, but you know what? I think you're really gonna like Chad. I do. We are so lucky that he found us and he saved us. He's gonna be with us from now on. Yeah. You and me, Tom, and maybe Chad.
Marlena: Go ahead, have a seat.
Chad: Thanks again for taking the time.
Marlena: My pleasure. Actually, you're a very good subject for this. And it's my hope we can make some real headway today. In fact, I would like us to continue...this process until all your memories are recovered.
Chad: You think that's really a possibility?
Marlena: I absolutely do.
Chad: [Claps once]
Marlena: Know how we do it.
Chad: Okay. [Clears throat]
Marlena: Just settle into the chair. Let everything go. Clear your mind. Let your body relax. Take a deep breath. Be aware of your breathing. With every breath you take... double your relaxation. Let all the tension leave your body. You'll be able to hear the sound of my voice, but you'll be completely, completely relaxed.
Jennifer: No, Ciara and Chase left a little while ago. They went to the square to work on their service project.
Hope: Oh, that's right, the-- decorating the Christmas tree.
Hope: How is Ciara?
Jennifer: Um, good. She seemed okay. But she and Chase...
Jennifer: I came in to tell them that breakfast was ready, and they just immediately stopped talking, and ran out of the room as quickly as they could.
Belle: Jennifer, we're talking about teenagers.
Hope: Teenagers, yeah.
Jennifer: No, I know, I just-- I just want to tell you this. After Jack died, JJ was really prone to making some bad decisions.
Hope: Yeah, Ciara has definitely had some... pretty rough days. I'll definitely keep an eye on her.
Hope: Thank you so much for doing this. I can't tell you how much it means.
Jennifer: Are you kidding me? I love you so much.
Hope: I love you, too.
Jennifer: All right, bye. Bye.
Belle: Bye, so good to see you.
Jennifer: You too.
Hope: Bye. Drive safely.
Belle: All right, well, everything you told me in the car didn't really even scratch the surface of what I need to know, so let's start from the beginning, and this time, you tell me everything.
Ciara: It's crooked.
Chase: It's not crooked, you just got to tilt your head a little bit.
Ciara: See, I told you we'd have fun doing this.
Chase: Yeah, and for once, you were right.
Theo: Hey, Ciara.
Ciara: Hey, Theo. I'm glad you made it.
Theo: Yeah, I know I'm late. My dad's car was stuck in all that traffic, so...
Ciara: It's okay.
Theo: I'm not supposed to be late.
Ciara: Theo, seriously, it's fine.
Chase: Yeah, Theo, no problem.
Ciara: Hey, let's check out these new ornaments.
Ciara: Some of them are pretty cool. Look at that.
Theo: Oh, that's awesome. [Laughs] Look how...
Ciara: Yeah. There were action hero ones before, but all the little kids got those.
Theo: Ah, dang it. Oh, that's cool.
Marlena: We're going to go back to the time that you lost. Do you know where you are now?
Chad: In your office.
Marlena: And did you have breakfast today?
Chad: Just juice.
Marlena: And was the sun shining when you got up this morning?
Chad: It was.
Marlena: Good. We're going to go back in time... to see exactly what you do remember.
Theo: Maybe Chase got hungry and he got something to eat.
Ciara: No, he, like, walks off like that sometimes without telling anybody.
Ciara: I keep hinting, you know? I mean, he could at least tell somebody.
Ciara: But it doesn't seem to register. Hey, what's wrong?
Ciara: Theo, you got a text. Who is it? Who sent this? Theo, do you know who sent this? I'm sorry. Look, everything's okay. It's fine. This is just some stupid dirt bag, and I'm gonna find out who it is, right now.
Ciara: Great, it's blocked.
Theo: I don't need your help, okay? He's a jerk, but I'll deal with it myself. I don't need you to defend me, okay?
Ciara: Okay. Theo--Theo, look.
Ciara: I'm sorry, okay? I know how strong you are. But we're buddies, right? And two heads are better than one. And we're going to find some way to bring this jerk down. together.
Roman: Did you talk to Hope?
Rafe: For a few seconds. Just told her I was sorry.
Roman: I tried to catch her after the arraignment, but Belle told her not to discuss anything about the case, so I backed off. I'm just hoping Belle can talk some sense into her because we need to know what the hell's going on here.
Rafe: Yeah. She's definitely hiding something. Something big.
Roman: Yeah, yeah. I mean, I get that she wanted to go after Malcolm because of what he did to my brother, but going to prison? That is not what Bo wanted for her or his family.
Belle: No wonder you wanted Jennifer here when Ciara woke up.
Hope: Yeah, well, I went off to be arrested, praying to God that I would make it back, but thanks to you, I did.
Belle: God, that poor girl. She must have been so terrified. Ugh, if that would've happened to Claire, I would be out of my mind.
Hope: I was. We have been through so-- we're gonna be okay. But Jenn's right. I need to keep a close eye on her.
Belle: God, I just can't-- ugh, okay, you know what, emotions off the table. We're gonna focus. I'm gonna go over everything and we're gonna make sure that we have our facts straight. So this man, Seth Malcolm, tortured Bo.
Hope: He admitted it. He was proud.
Belle: Okay. And he was also instrumental in holding Bo prisoner, and making you think that he'd deserted you.
Hope: Yeah, that's right.
Belle: Okay, and the gun...
Hope: Was taken when I tangled with Malcolm.
Belle: Okay, and that was the same night that you promised to give him money for information to find out who was really behind Bo's kidnapping.
Hope: Exactly, yes, exactly, and then Malcolm was killed, obviously to shut him up and frame me for the murder using my gun.
Belle: I have to be frank. Hope, you have means, you have motive, and if you can't give them an alibi--
Hope: Oh, my God, I'm sunk.
Belle: No, not necessarily. There are way too many variables. You know, and with the right kind of investigation, we may be able to dig up the real killer.
Hope: Victor's using his unlimited resources to find out what happened to Bo, and with me out on bail, I can keep looking.
Belle: Hope, you have to stay out of it completely.
Hope: I will not stay out of this--I am involved.
Belle: If you get caught...
Hope: I know every detail.
Belle: By the police or by the people who are trying to set you up, I will never be able to get this case dismissed.
Hope: No, I will not back off, I am involved.
Belle: Stop! Do you hear what I'm telling you?
Jennifer: Hi. Now you know.
Abigail: Know what?
Jennifer: Just how much I loved you when you were this small.
Abigail: I mean, it's amazing. Everything he does. I mean, his little--his nose, his hands--his little hands, and just feeling his breath and just his little... ugh, his teeny little body. It's amazing. I never thought I could love something this much, ever.
Jennifer: And just so you know, it never, ever goes away. Is there anything I can do for you, honey?
Abigail: No. Really, Mom, I'm good. Good. I'm gonna check on Chad in a little bit. He's with Marlena.
Abigail: No, it's just funny. I left Chad like an hour ago, and I can't stop checking my phone. [Sighs]
Jennifer: He means a lot to you.
Abigail: He saved us.
Jennifer: Yeah. I know he did.
Abigail: You know what, Thomas? It is gonna be you, and me, and Chad. Yeah.
André: Chad, you chose the wrong doctor. Fortunately, it works perfectly for me... and the plans I have for you.
