Roman: Come with me.
Lani: I'll set up to record.
Roman: No, you and Detective Hernandez stay here.
Lani: But she just confessed to murder.
Roman: And your commanding officer is going to talk to her alone.
Lani: That's not right.
Rafe: It's not your call.
Roman: [Sighs] Hope... you want to tell me what the hell's going on here?
Hope: I killed Seth Malcolm. I just told you that.
Roman: Without a lawyer.
Hope: I don't think I need one.
Roman: Hope, do not play games with me, all right? You didn't come to me first. You didn't give me a heads-up. You didn't call a lawyer. What you did do was confess-- in front of police officers-- to a murder you swore you didn't commit.
Hope: No, I didn't. [Soft music]
Belle: I didn't see you come in.
Philip: You didn't hear me say your name either. Man, when you work, you work!
Belle: Just like you. What is this?
Philip: That's the flight manifest for the Kiriakis jet.
Belle: And I'm interested in this why?
Philip: Check out the destination.
Belle: Las Vegas.
Philip: I have some business out there. I thought you'd like to come with me.
Belle: You need legal counsel?
Philip: No. You need to have some fun. [Light music]
Claire: Oh, Mrs. Larson.
Eve: Eve, please. And have I got amazing news for you.
Claire: Come in.
Eve: [Laughs] You know how impressed I've been with your singing at the music program, so impressed that I made a tape of your singing.
Eve: Well, I sent it to a friend of mine, a friend who happens to teach at Juilliard. Guess what. You have an audition, sweetheart. [Giggling]
Justin: Hello, Caroline. I got here as soon as I could.
Justin: What's the problem?
Caroline: I'm worried about Victor. Do these names mean anything to you?
Victor: What are you doing in my house?
Belle: Wow. You don't exactly take things slowly, do you?
Philip: Never saw the point.
Belle: You don't see that there's kind of a leap between going to a party together and jumping on a private jet to Sin City together?
Philip: Look, there's no strings attached. If you can work here, you can work in the room while I'm in meetings. Then we'll knock off work, enjoy ourselves.
Belle: Mm-hmm. "The room," singular?
Philip: I promise... [Blows sharply] To be a perfect gentleman.
Belle: Oh, I'm positive you will be a perfect gentleman, because I'll make sure of it. But, Philip, you do not know how to stop working and have fun. Remember the basic black launch party?
Philip: A magical evening.
Belle: If it's any indication as to how you have fun, you're gonna leave me alone by the pool or by the spa or alone at the casino while you're on the phone or working. Thanks, but no, thanks.
Claire: An audition at Juilliard?
Eve: That's right, sweetheart.
Eve: What, that's it, "oh"? Honey, Juilliard is the best in this country. Juilliard is Audra McDonald. It's Patti Lupone.
Claire: I'd have to go to New York to audition, right?
Eve: Well, you'd get to go to New York to audition. And it wouldn't have to be just an in-and-out flight. You could stay for the week. And, you know, if you want, I could join you and show you the city.
Claire: I mean, thank you, but I'm pretty sure that my mom wouldn't let me go.
Eve: Claire, if this is about money--
Claire: Oh, no, no, no, I mean, thank you so much. I just really don't think it's a good idea for me to leave my mom. To be honest, I don't know if I'd want to go to Juilliard even if I got in.
Justin: Damien. As in saint Damien, who cared for the lepers?
Caroline: Well, it's Damien, as in the kid in "the omen" who was the son of the devil.
Justin: Okay. What's this all about?
Caroline: Well, I've had visions of Victor. They're all bad. He's either injured, or he's had a heart attack.
Justin: Okay. And what does that have to do with Damien?
Caroline: I saw the worst vision of all. There was a man standing in Victor's doorway holding a gun, and there was blood on his shirt. And he called himself Damien or Damon, something like that.
Justin: Victor told me about your visions. Caroline, you took an experimental drug, and these visions might very well be a side effect of that drug.
Caroline: That side effect told Steve exactly where to find my son Bo.
Justin: Steve is a very good detective.
Caroline: Well, I told him the name of the clinic where Bo was being held. I never went there. I didn't know it existed. But I saw the name. So when I tell you that Victor's in danger, you damn well better pay attention.
Victor: Deimos, what are you doing here? How did you manage to get out?
Deimos: [Chuckles] Hello, brother. It's been a very long time.
Victor: Not long enough.
Deimos: So can we talk? Or are you just gonna shoot me dead?
Hope: Someone should really tell the rookie detective not to jump to conclusions. I said I killed Malcolm. She's the one who said "murder."
Roman: So you shot him but it wasn't murder. Diminished capacity?
Hope: God knows, after everything I've been through, a good attorney could probably sell that, make it stick. Roman, I blocked everything out.
Roman: But now you remember.
Hope: I do. I remember everything. It was in self-defense. He was gonna kill me, so I killed him.
Roman: Why would he want to kill you, Hope?
Hope: 'Cause he wanted to make a deal. He said he would tell me who-- who kidnapped and tortured Bo in exchange for $1/2 million.
Lani: Well, I didn't see that coming. Did you? You were so sure that you were gonna clear her, that she was innocent. Then you walk in with her and she confesses. I mean, did you know it was her all along? Did you finally convince her to confess?
Lani: I mean, you said you'd do anything to clear her. What changed your mind?
Eve: Wow, I-- I really thought that this was gonna make you happy, honey.
Claire: Yeah, I mean, maybe if my life wasn't so screwed up, it would. But I just changed schools. My parents are talking about getting a divorce. My uncle's in real trouble.
Eve: Honey, I'm sure that your family wouldn't want their problems to keep you from a wonderful opportunity.
Claire: It's just such a huge decision, and I don't know if I've been making the best decisions these days.
Eve: So you're just-- you're just gonna let this slide? I want you to listen to me a minute. You know, you're at an age where you're really gonna have to start making some decisions, some probably tough decisions, because you have to think about your future. Tell you what I want you to do. You think about this, and you talk it over with your mom. And you know what? Maybe she won't think it's such a crazy idea.
Philip: Well, I can see you're still as obstinate as ever.
Belle: And you still don't give up until you get what you want.
Philip: Belle, this trip to Las Vegas is not what I want. It's what you need.
Belle: Oh, I know. You're only thinking of me.
Philip: That's right. And your worries that I'll ignore you are groundless.
Belle: You said this was a business trip. We both know when you get into business mode, everything else just goes away.
Philip: I only have two meetings. The rest of the time I'll devote to you. You can put my cell phone in the safe. We can set the combination.
Belle: No. The answer is still no. I have clients who need face time.
Belle: Too impersonal.
Philip: Well, if they can't handle a two-day postponement, you don't want them as clients.
Belle: I'm starting up a practice. I need every client I can get.
Philip: But you're rich now. You don't need to work.
Belle: [Laughing] Oh, man, if that is not the pot calling the kettle black. Philip, just like you, I like to work. I didn't go spend all this time in law school to go sit by a pool in Nevada.
Philip: I think you're protesting this too much.
Belle: And--and Claire. What am I supposed to do, just leave her here?
Philip: She's a teenager. You wouldn't see her anyway. No, I'm sure I'm right about this. You need to come with me.
Victor: Why aren't you still in prison? You were supposed to be there for life.
Deimos: After 30 years of exemplary behavior, they took pity on me. You would have been proud of me, brother. I was a model prisoner.
Victor: So they released you. And you came here. Why?
Deimos: Oh, I think you know the answer to that one.
Lani: I changed your mind?
Rafe: Yeah. You thought that I was crossing a line, that I was heading into dangerous territory, and I thought about it, and you were right. So I went and I saw hope, and I convinced her to turn herself in, come clean. So thank you for your honesty.
Lani: I think you would have gotten there on your own. Bottom line: You're a good cop. But I am glad this is all settled.
Lani: And, Rafe, I'll always have your back.
Rafe: I'll always have yours.
Roman: You were gonna pay this dirtbag $1/2 million for information about Bo. Why not come to me? We could have set up a sting operation.
Hope: No, no. He was a dirtbag, but he was a smart one. Roman, he would have known if I'd gone to you. And God knows what he would have done then, who he would have hurt next.
Roman: So what happened?
Hope: We met. We met in the park. He ended up attacking me. He was trying to kill me, roman. Finally I was able-- finally I was able to get my gun, and I fired, and I shot.
Roman: Why didn't you call it in?
Hope: Because as we already established, I wasn't thinking straight. I wasn't in my right mind. I panicked. I didn't know what to do. I think that's probably when I blocked out the whole thing.
Roman: Right. You know, hope, I know you're a good cop. I know you're a smart cop. But I'm not sure I buy this.
Want bladder leak underwear that moves like you do?
Hope: I'm telling you the truth. I mean, why would I even be here if I wasn't gonna come completely clean with you?
Roman: I don't know, hope. I really don't. But there's so much missing here. There are so many different versions to this story.
Hope: Okay. I'm sorry... that after being almost strangled to death, losing my husband, and then being attacked by the man who tortured him that I wasn't coherent enough for you.
Roman: Hope, I know you've been through hell and after Bo died, all you wanted was revenge. I get that. Believe me, I get that. I felt the same way.
Hope: This wasn't about revenge. It's self-defense, roman. You-- why don't-- you have to believe me.
Roman: I want to. Believe me, hope, I want to. But you know what? You don't have to convince me. You have to convince the DA's office. If you don't, you'll go to trial.
Hope: I know. I have to convince the judge or jury, and I can. I can do it because it's the truth.
Roman: Right. Okay, all right. Well, in that case, you really do need to get a lawyer, because after this, everything you say will have to go on the record.
Hope: You're the one who decided to keep it off the record. I was and still am ready to make a statement, a full statement.
Roman: Okay. Okay.
Belle: What? Stop.
Philip: I think I see worry lines.
Philip: Stress is taking its toll, belle. Too many long hours, too many details.
[Cell phone rings]
Belle: Oh, hold on. Hope? Okay, stay right where you are. I'm on my way. Don't say anything to anyone until I get there. Duty calls.
Philip: Two final words on the subject of Las Vegas: Gladys Knight.
Belle: Oh, that's not fair.
Philip: You got to go. You got to go!
Belle: [Laughing] Okay. When are you leaving?
Philip: Whenever you're ready. Just come to the mansion.
Belle: Well, I haven't said yes yet.
Philip: You haven't said no.
Belle: You are incorrigible.
Justin: Caroline, you do not need to worry about Victor. He's very well protected. Trust me.
Caroline: Oh, really? Well, I'm sorry to have bothered you.
Justin: Caroline, wait.
Caroline: Don't say that I didn't warn you.
Justin: Caroline! Car--
Justin: Hey. You look upset. Are you all right?
Eve: Oh, it's nothing. Just did what I always do, act without thinking.
Justin: What happened?
Eve: Well, without asking Claire or belle, I set up this audition for Claire at Juilliard, and I thought that this would be just something really wonderful for Claire, but apparently--I don't know-- she's upset. It freaked her out. She's upset at the idea of leaving her mother.
Justin: Well, her family is going through a lot right now.
Eve: I know. I just feel like, you know, Claire's getting lost in the shuffle in all this, and belle, she's not tuned in to what Claire really wants or needs, I think.
Justin: You have to be very careful about coming between a parent and her child. I mean, you should have told belle what you were doing.
Eve: I know. I know. But Claire has such talent, Justin. She could go places.
Justin: Don't try to substitute Claire for Paige.
Eve: What-- what are you talking about?
Victor: So you've come for revenge.
Deimos: No. I spent all those years in prison learning to forgive. I came to the realization that wanting vengeance was like a cancer, just eating away at you.
Victor: How evolved of you.
Deimos: Hmm. But if I was honest with myself, I'd have to say that I was hoping that you spent the same amount of time wanting to atone for what you did. I guess that might be just too much to ask, huh?
Victor: But I'm sure you're here to ask for something.
Deimos: I think it's obvious, isn't it? I want a chance to rebuild my life. And to do that, I need a job. Come on, brother of mine. You owe me that much, don't you think?
Victor: I think you should get out of my house. You're not welcome here.
Deimos: That's because I remind you of your past. But you can't escape your past, Victor. Don't you know that by now? [Dramatic music]
Victor: I do not need nor want a lecture from you. Far as I'm concerned, you're as dead to me as Alexander and Titus.
Deimos: Yeah, but the reality is, I'm not dead, Victor. I'm right here. And all the wishful thinking in the world isn't gonna change that fact. You know, I've been looking at your pictures here. You have a lovely family-- beautiful wife, son, grandson.
Victor: You've been studying me.
Deimos: Of course I have. Your family is my family too. Doesn't matter that you want me gone, that you wish I never existed. I'm still blood, Victor. And just like your past, you can't erase family.
Philip: You came to see your mom? She just left.
Claire: Yeah, I know. I saw her go. I actually wanted to talk to you.
Claire: So I don't know exactly what's going on with my parents, but I do know that they still love each other. They just need time to figure out that they need to be together. So it would be really, really great if you just stayed away from my mom.
Philip: Claire, I'm really sorry for what you're going through.
Claire: No, you don't understand what I'm--
Philip: I went through the same thing with my parents, so I know firsthand what it's like. And the last thing that I want to do is hurt you. But the truth is, if your mom wanted to be with your dad, she would move heaven and earth to make that happen.
Claire: You don't understand. She's pretending that she doesn't want to be with my dad.
Philip: Well, in any case, what your mom wants is up to her. You need to let her make her own choices. You can't will your parents back together. Trust me, I know.
Eve: Just because I'm trying to help a young woman make her dreams come true doesn't mean I'm trying to replace Paige. My God, nothing and no one could ever replace my Paigey.
Justin: Yeah. No, I'm sorry. You're right. You're right. I know how much you love and miss your daughter. [Cell phone ringing]
Eve: Your phone's ringing.
Justin: Yeah. Sorry. It's work.
Justin: Yeah, roman, what's going on? What? Has she been read her rights? All right. All right, I'll be right there. Sorry, I really have to go. Listen, I'll call you later. Maybe we can do dinner.
Eve: Can I ask you something first?
Eve: What's--what's going on with us?
Justin: Where is this coming from?
Eve: Well, last night, I just picked up some-- you know, some signs that maybe things aren't over for you and Adrienne. And I-- I just don't want to have my heart broken again.
Roman: Rafe... how long have you known that hope killed Malcolm?
Rafe: Well, hope called me this morning, said she needed to talk to me, so... I went over there, and she told me what happened, said she remembered it in the night. So I told her that she needed to let me take her in. There she is.
Roman: Well, let's just hope she can back up her claim of self-defense. Otherwise, this confession could land her in prison for a very long time.
Rafe: You think that Justin's gonna seek to press charges?
Roman: I don't know, Rafe. I just hope he's in a very understanding mood.
Justin: Eve, here's what I know. I am recently divorced from a woman who I raised a family with. You have just lost a daughter, and now her father has just shown up out of nowhere. So I don't think either one of us can know what we're feeling right now or can make a commitment.
Eve: Okay. That was honest. And that's all I ask. I--I just don't want to be fooled again, you know? I-- I am tired of searching for happiness. I would just kind of like for it to find me.
Justin: Fair enough. So if I have to be honest, I can't make any promises right now. If that's not enough for you, if you can't wait to see what happens next... well, guess that's your decision.
Philip: Father, what's going on?
Deimos: It appears your father is uncharacteristically tongue-tied. He didn't expect to see me. I'm your Uncle Deimos.
Philip: My uncle? How many brothers did you have?
Victor: Two that I acknowledge, one I never hoped to see again.
Deimos: Philip, it's wonderful to finally meet you. I'm looking forward to getting to know you. But I think I'm gonna have to give your father some time to process this unexpected visitation.
Victor: There's nothing to process. You're not wanted here. You should go.
Deimos: Well, looks like it's gonna take some time. But we'll talk again... soon. We have so much to catch up on.
Belle: I wish you would have talked to me before you did this.
Hope: It wouldn't change the fact that I shot Malcolm.
Belle: Well, in any case, I can get what you said to Roman and Rafe thrown out. But first, I need to get you out of here.
Belle: And then you're gonna tell me the whole story.
Hope: I'm going to make a statement.
Belle: No, you're not.
[Knock at door]
Belle: No, I'm sorry, guys. I need more time with my client.
Hope: No, belle. I'm going to make a statement.
Justin: All right, let's do it. Monday, January 18th, 10:41 A.M. Present are hope Brady; her counsel, belle Brady; commissioner roman Brady; detective Rafael Hernandez; and district attorney Justin Kiriakis.
Belle: I want it noted that my client is going against her counsel's wishes.
Justin: So noted. Mrs. Brady, would you please tell us what happened the night of Dr. Seth Malcolm's murder?
Belle: Uh-uh, death.
Justin: Shooting? Mrs. Brady?
Hope: Yeah, I-- I went to see Dr. Malcolm to try to get information about my husband's kidnapping and sub-- subsequent torture. After the Russian roulette incident, he reached out to me, said he wanted money in exchange for that information. Of course, I didn't trust him, but I-- I was so desperate to find out what had happened-- what had happened to Bo.
Justin: Bo Brady, your late husband.
Hope: Yes, that's correct. We--Malcolm and I-- we met in the park. And I was right not to trust him. He wanted the money without telling me anything. When I refused, he attacked me. He was trying to kill me. We struggled for a long time. Finally I was able to reach my weapon, and I fired. I killed Dr. Seth Malcolm.
Justin: And then what happened?
Hope: I blocked everything out. I mean, until last night, I didn't even remember going to the park or any of the events leading up to my going there.
Justin: What happened last night?
Hope: I started remembering. It was in flashes, but eventually everything started coming back to me. This morning, I contacted Detective Hernandez.
Roman: So, Mr. Kiriakis... how do you want to proceed?
Oh my gosh, Stephanie.
Justin: I wish you had told us all this from the beginning.
Hope: Didn't you just hear what I said? I blocked everything out. I've been under a lot of stress.
Justin: I know.
Belle: She had every reason to fear for her life. This man abducted her husband. He had a history of violence.
Justin: Save your summation, counselor. We're off the record. And I know what you're going to say, and I don't disagree. You were put through hell, Hope. God only knows what Dr. Malcolm was capable of.
Justin: Release her. I'm dropping all charges against you. It'd be a waste of time and money to bring this case to a judge.
Hope: Thank you. Thank you, Justin.
Belle: All right, let's get going.
Hope: Thank you.
Belle: That couldn't have gone any better, but it was really risky, hope. You should have called me.
Hope: Yeah, I know. I'm sorry. I-- belle, thank you so much for helping me.
Belle: Yeah. Well, listen, maybe it's none of my business, but Justin's right. You really have been through hell lately. I can see the toll that the shooting is taking on you. You know, maybe you should talk to somebody about everything you've been through.
Hope: It's over. It's--it's over, and I'm fine.
Belle: Okay. I hope so. I really do.
Hope: Thank you.
Victor: I haven't seen him in 30 years, and I wish that I didn't seen him today.
Philip: But he's your brother.
Victor: Don't go getting sentimental about Deimos. Let me make something clear. You are to steer clear of him. He will go after my family to get what he wants.
Philip: What's that?
Victor: All you need to know is that he's trouble. Stay away from him. So you about ready for your trip to Vegas?
Philip: Yes, soon.
Victor: Good. Well, have a good time. Hopefully, by the time you get back, Deimos will be history.
Belle: So she arranged an audition at Juilliard without talking to either one of us?
Claire: Yeah, I know, right?
Belle: Well, I mean, I'm not crazy about that. Is that something you want to do?
Claire: Well, I told eve that I didn't think I should leave you right now.
Belle: Really? Sweetie, I should be taking care of you, not the other way around.
Claire: You-- okay, maybe I just put it the wrong way. It--it just seems like you and I aren't talking like we used to talk.
Belle: I know. I'm sorry. I know I have not been at the top of my game.
Claire: Well, I was thinking about that. Okay, remember we used to do, like, private mother/daughter things? I--I thought that we could do that this weekend. Maybe we could go shopping or into Chicago or something.
Belle: Well, I mean, that does sound like fun.
Claire: Why don't we go to Chicago? We can see a play and then get dinner.
Belle: Honey, I didn't say yes.
Claire: Well, you said it would be fun.
Belle: And I know it would be. But I actually have to go out of town on a business trip.
Claire: Does it have to be this weekend?
Belle: Yes, it does. Sorry I didn't tell you about it sooner. I just found out.
Claire: Well... maybe some other time.
Belle: You are incorrigible.
Claire: When you don't have business.
Belle: Yes, absolutely. Sweetie, I promise I'll make it up to you. But right now, I got to go pack.
Claire: Hey, Dad, call me when you get this, okay? Mom's in really bad trouble. You need to get back to Salem right away.
Deimos: Were you followed?
Deimos: Good. So... what do you have to tell me?
Roman: All set?
Justin: Think so.
Roman: Justin... thank you. I think you made a good call. And I very much believe it was the right call.
Justin: Do you believe her?
Roman: About as much as you do.
Hope: Thank you for everything.
Rafe: Yeah. You're practically home free.
