JJ: Hey, thanks for meeting me.
Gabi: Hey, um, I... I thought you had work today.
JJ: Yeah, I'm going in in a few minutes.
JJ: So I just wanted to buy you...just a cup of coffee.
Gabi: A coffee?
JJ: Yeah, and--and do this.
Chad: As soon as the sale is finalized, I want all the locks changed and a new security system installed ASAP.
Harold: Yes, sir. Uh, thank you, sir, from the bottom of my heart, for letting me stay.
Chad: And, um, I'm sure you won't forget, but you work for us now, right? Not my father or André.
Harold: Yes, sir.
Chad: Good morning. How'd Thomas do when you dropped him off?
Abigail: He didn't even cry.
Chad: That's a good thing, right? He won't be at daycare much longer, okay?
Abigail: Yeah, I know. I'm gonna, um... [Sighs] I'm gonna see my mom and tell her that we are eloping, I'm resigning. [Exhales] [Voice breaking] I'm a nervous wreck.
Jennifer: [Groans] Ohh...
Jennifer: Oh, my gosh. Hello.
Yeah, good morning, Mr. Burns.
[Mr. Burns, indistinct]
Wait, what do you mean, no one got the press release about the new pediatric wing's donor?
[Mr. Burns, indistinct]
Yes, of course, I sent it. I sent it last night.
[Mr. Burns, indistinct]
Well, I am so sorry that they didn't see their names in the newspaper this morning, I-- I can resend the release, I-- I am not getting defensive. I just don't understand why you have to scream at me when I did everything that I could that I was supposed to!
[Sighs] Fine. I will forward the sent email.
[Keyboard keys clicking]
[Whispers] Oh, no!
Hope: I've lived so much of my life in fear of Stefano. I don't regret putting those bullets in his chest. I only regret that I didn't do it decades ago.
Rafe: And taking out his son with him?
Hope: Rafe, I've been thinking. What if André goes to the police and tells them I killed his father?
Rafe: No. He knows the police would never believe him.
Hope: But after everything that happened with Dr. Malcolm, they'd have to follow up.
Rafe: The investigation is the least of my worries right now. André just tried to burn your house down. Maybe his intention was to hurt you, but maybe not. Now that we've destroyed that camera he hid, God only knows what he's gonna do next.
Chase: I don't know how the hell you could ever trust me.
Ciara: I want to trust you. Okay? Look, I thought maybe you did it not to destroy anything or to hurt anybody but to make me think that...you're brave and heroic.
Chase: Oh, my God, you actually think that I would do that...that I would start a fire just so that I could come to the rescue so that you would think I was cool again...'cause I'm so brave. Well, I would rather take my chances out there than stay in here with someone who's gonna judge me for what my dad did. You guys can go to hell!
Ciara: Okay, you know what? You're right! No one wants you here anyway!
Ciara: Oh, God, chase, please be okay.
André: Good morning! Where are you headed?
Chase: Anywhere but... hmm. I was actually about to say "home."
André: You ran away? More trouble in the family?
Chase: They're not my family.
André: Well, have you had anything to eat this morning? Here.
Chase: It's okay--
André: No, no, no, it's just... now, tell me...what happened?
Chase: Well, there...there was a fire at the house. Ciara thinks I tried to burn the house down.
André: Oh, my. Does Hope believe that as well?
Chase: I don't know. But if Ciara hates me, then...
André: Yes, that would be very hard on you, wouldn't it, chase? Given the way you feel about her.
Chase: Yeah, it would be.
Hope: Well, I'm not gonna sit around here waiting for André to make his next move. Damn it, Rafe, he broke into my house and he stole Bo's gun. And if he hasn't taken it to the police yet...what's he planning on doing with it anyway? Use it on me?
Rafe: I would never let that happen.
Hope: Look, I know I wasn't sold on trying to get him for breaking and entering, but that was before he found a way to torch my house from the outside. You think it'll buy us time? I say go for it, then.
Hope: Now, if we could just find a way to catch him with the gun in his-- wait a minute.
Hope: I can't believe that I didn't think of this sooner. Rafe, if we can pull this off... I know how we can take care of André once and for all.
[Keyboard keys clacking]
Jennifer: Oh, my gosh, what's wrong with me? I didn't even finish writing this. Oh, gosh.
Chad: Abby, are you sure you want to tell your mom about this?
Abigail: I have to tell her about it, I mean... if we're gonna elope, I have to tell her. I have to let her know.
Chad: Well, no, of course you're gonna let her know. I just thought...thought maybe it'd be easier if you waited till we got back.
Abigail: Can't wait till we get back, Chad. She's talking to caterers and she's, you know, talking to florists and she's planning this huge celebration. I-I mean, I can't just--
Abigail: I can't wait for her to--
Abigail: Hi, Mom. I'm on my way in.
Jennifer: Could you hurry? I could really use your help.
Abigail: Yeah, I'll be right there.
[Beep] It's a work emergency. I have to go, um... I'll see you later, I guess.
Chad: Okay. Good luck, all right? Whatever you decide.
Abigail: Thanks. Yeah... I guess we need it.
Chase: Well, um... thank you for breakfast. I should probably go before someone tries to find me.
André: Where...are you planning to go?
Chase: I don't...know. I-I have an aunt in Chicago. I probably have enough for a one-way bus ticket.
André: And then what?
Chase: Just figure it out.
André: Have you ever been to Chicago in February? It's not just the bitter cold. 'Cause it's cold here as well. But it's the wind. Dear God, it's...it's brutal. You might as well move to Siberia. But I-I have...a notion that you really want to stay here. Am I right? I mean, you don't want to leave Ciara believing...that you tried to burn her house down. You want her to understand that you are a decent fellow... that there is the possibility... that she could fall in love with you.
Ciara: Chase, please call me back. I'm sorry for what I said. I didn't mean it. Please come home.
Hope: Simple, isn't it?
Rafe: [Scoffs] Yeah. Yeah, if all goes according to plan--and that's a very big if.
Hope: What other option do we have?
Rafe: [Sighs] You know, let André make a mistake--
Hope: What if he doesn't? Rafe, what if he doesn't make a mistake? If we can pull this off, not only do we get rid of André, people will stop asking questions about Stefano.
Rafe: Yeah, and if we don't pull it off, they'll stop asking questions about Stefano because they'll know that you did it.
Hope: I think it's worth taking the risk. Are you with me... or not?
Gabi: I needed this coffee. I needed it.
JJ: Well, you are very, very welcome.
Gabi: Thank you. [Giggles]
Abigail: Hi, Gabi. Hey!
Abigail: You know, will you please tell your daughter that I would love to have a date with my goddaughter?
Gabi: And I would love to have a date with your sweet little guy.
JJ: Where is Thomas?
Abigail: Uh, it is his first day of daycare, actually.
JJ: Cool. I mean, that's better than a DiMera nanny. Was Chad too busy to help out?
Abigail: You know, I really don't think that's any of your business, you know?
Gabi: You know, JJ, it's actually really hard, you know, making that decision as a mom without being judged.
JJ: Who's judging?
Gabi: Chad's not exactly a friend of mine, but he did save your sister's life and Thomas's. So maybe you could give him a chance.
Abigail: Thanks, Gabi.
JJ: Well, you know, I might be able to do that if you weren't moving into a haunted mansion with him and his crazy family.
Abigail: Really? I told you that André and Stefano aren't even living there.
JJ: Who knows how long that's gonna last?
Abigail: Do you think maybe you could just please not be so negative?
JJ: Hey, the DiMeras hurt people, abs. It's a well-known fact. And I really, really don't want it to be you or my nephew.
Chad: I need you to sign some papers.
Abigail: Oh, yeah? What kind of papers?
Abigail: What? Chad, we never talked about a prenup.
Chad: Well, it's just a precaution. I'm not trying to upset you. It's just that you're...marrying into a grand family. It only makes sense that I protect our legacy.
Abigail: You win.
Chad: To...my love... my prized possession.
Abigail: [Exhales] I...am nobody's...possession. Where is the real Chad? Where is Chad? Tell me where he is.
Chad: You'll never find him.
Chad: There's a guy-- he looks just like me, okay, but that'll never be me. I promise you, that'll never be me.
Gabi: Hey, I know you're worried, but...my brother's a cop, okay? So no one's gonna mess with her.
Abigail: And Chad would never let that happen.
JJ: I hope you're right.
Gabi: Chad--Chad found out he was a DiMera a couple of years ago--I mean, you're not gonna hold that against him. What about Thomas? I didn't think so.
Abigail: Well, if you're not gonna listen to me, then maybe you should listen to this smart lady. You know, it might be a while before we can have that play date, actually, Gabi.
Abigail: Well, I haven't told my mom this yet, but, uh, Chad and I are eloping.
Abigail: Mm-hmm. Be happy, JJ. At least that means you won't have to show up to the wedding and plaster on a smile. I'll see you later.
JJ: I bet that wasn't her idea. My mom is gonna flip.
Rafe: Um... okay. When do you want to put this plan in motion?
Hope: No time like the present.
Rafe: All right, then. I just gotta go down to the station, and I'll talk--
[Door thuds closed]
Hope: Ciara, what are you doing home?
Rafe: I gotta go to work.
Rafe: So, uh, see you later.
Ciara: See you.
Hope: Honey, is everything--
Ciara: I went to the nurse's office. I was just feeling kind of icky.
Hope: What do you mean?
Ciara: Just stomach...my head.
Hope: You you don't have a fever. We're all pretty shaken up over the fire, but honey, don't-- don't worry yourself sick. It's gonna be okay...really. Are you upset about something else?
Ciara: Sort of.
Hope: What is it, baby?
Ciara: Mom, I should have told you sooner. I just--I was hoping I could find him.
Hope: Find who? Chase?
Ciara: Yeah, we had a fight the night of the fire, and he left.
Hope: He's been gone all this time--Ciara!
Ciara: Yeah, I know, I'm sorry.
Hope: What happened? Tell me exactly what happened.
Ciara: I...said that I thought maybe he was the one that started the fire.
Hope: Oh, my God.
Ciara: I know, I'm sorry. I just kinda blurted it out. I saw him...tossing lit matches one time.
Hope: And you just left? You didn't try to stop him?
Ciara: I couldn't. Not after... [Sighs] Not...after I told him that I didn't want him here.
Chase: I'm done with Ciara. If she wants to keep thinking that I'm the enemy, then--
André: Yeah, but you're not. As a matter of fact, you're the victim here. So much has been taken away from you. But you're strong. You need to stand up for yourself. I mean, running away--what is that going to accomplish? Look at your father. He just ran away from the old house, the old life. If he'd stayed, maybe he'd be alive today.
Chase: How do you know that?
André: Because I pay attention! It just would be so tragic... for you to lose what little you have left. You don't want to lose Ciara, do you?
Gabi: Hey, um, I'm sorry if it sounded like I was lecturing you.
JJ: No, you weren't. I mean, you're right, 'cause my sister's gonna marry Chad whether I like it or not, so I should probably just give him a chance.
Gabi: So you're listening to me?
JJ: Uh, why wouldn't I? You're...you're very persuasive. I really wish I wasn't going to work right now.
Gabi: [Laughs] It's like your second day.
JJ: No, I-I love my job. It's just... I would much rather be doing something else right now.
Gabi: Me too. Soon.
Chad: What's all this?
Harold: André asked that the remainder of his things be sent to the Salem inn, sir.
Chad: All right, well, make sure you have everything. He steps foot on this property again, I want him tossed on his ass.
Harold: Yes, sir. Uh...what about your father, sir? Do you really think he's gone for good?
Chad: I've never been so lucky before.
Hope: What would make you say such a thing?
Ciara: I told you--it just came out. I was hoping he didn't, but--
Hope: He's never given you any reason to believe--
Ciara: Mom, come on, tell me the truth. It's never crossed your mind, not even for a second?
Hope: No. The important thing right now is to find chase.
Ciara: I have been looking, mom--I've texted and called like a hundred times.
Hope: Chase, please call me as soon as you get this message. Ciara and I do want you here. We do. Chase, I love you. Please just call me, okay? The guard--he'll know where he is. Yeah, do you have a, uh, a visual on chase Jennings? No, he's not here--he gave you the slip again! I'm calling your supervisor right now and telling him your services are no longer needed. You're being replaced. You're fired!
Ciara: God...this is all my fault.
Hope: We can't keep taking our anger out on other people, Ciara.
Ciara: What are we gonna do now?
Hope: Well, you're gonna stay here, and I'm gonna go find chase. Don't leave the house.
[Knock on door]
Rafe: Hey. Got a sec?
Roman: Sure, sure. Come on in. What's up?
Rafe: You heard anything about Stefano's whereabouts lately?
Roman: Well, Chad said he went to Europe.
Rafe: Huh. Told me the same thing.
Roman: You think Chad's lying?
Rafe: No. But I will tell you what is nagging me. Chad says he hasn't heard from Stefano ever since he left. Now, with the house going into foreclosure, tax trouble, Chad being put on the new deed, André being estranged--
Roman: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute...estranged?
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah. André's going to live at the Salem inn. You'd think Stefano would have intervened.
Roman: Okay... do you know if André has spoken with the old man?
Rafe: No. But have you seen André lately?
Rafe: [Laughs] He looks like he got in a battle with Freddy Krueger. He's--he's got this gash on his face, man--it's not pretty.
Roman: Well, what the hell did he say happened?
Rafe: Gave me some crazy story... I can't help but think that maybe that was a gift from father to son.
Roman: Stefano was in a wheelchair. He was on oxygen. No way he beats André in a fight.
Rafe: Yeah, but you never underestimate Stefano.
Roman: Well, that is true, yes, but, uh... why would he turn on his own son now, after all these years of protecting him?
Rafe: André has a habit of pissing people off. Maybe he just went too far this time.
When my doctor told me I have
Roman: Look, we really have no reason to believe that Stefano was involved in André's injuries.
Rafe: Yeah, but here's the thing: André's a vain guy. He's gonna be scarred now for the rest of his life because he didn't seek medical treatment. Why? Who's he scared of?
[Knock on door]
Hope: I'm sorry to interrupt.
Rafe: Hope, what are you doing here?
Hope: I'm here to file a missing persons report. Chase is missing.
Hope: He and Ciara had a fight last night, he took off without anyone knowing and without a guard.
Rafe: JJ, I need you to file a missing persons report-- chase Jennings.
Hope: I-I don't know what he was wearing, but I'm gonna text you a photo right now.
JJ: I'm on it.
Roman: We'll find him, Hope.
Hope: While I'm here, I might as well file another report.
Roman: For what?
Hope: Robbery and vandalism at my house.
Hope: I don't know how many more things can go wrong.
Roman: Look, sit down, sit down, okay? Can I get you coffee, water, something?
Roman: Look, I read the report on the fire. You are staying with Jennifer now, right? Okay. The fire department said it's accidental.
Hope: Well, that's what I thought, too...until I started cleaning up and found this. Someone planted this in my house. They've been watching every move the kids and I made.
Rafe: May I?
Roman: Yeah. So...so you believe the b&E... is related to the fire.
Hope: As far as I can tell, there's only one thing missing-- Bo's service gun. I always keep in the closet in a locked strong box. The box is still there, but the gun is gone.
Roman: When did this happen?
Hope: Honestly, I have no idea. But I'm thinking that's when they planted the camera.
Roman: Do you have any idea who's responsible?
Rafe: Well, Victor always said that he was worried that whoever kidnapped Bo could potentially come after Hope or her family.
Roman: Because they're after the serum he developed for mom.
Rafe: I'm just trying to think of who...or which one of Victor's enemies would benefit the most from a sudden infusion of cash.
Roman: Well, Stefano's supposedly in Europe, so that means somebody else would have to be doing his dirty work.
Hope: Or... they're acting on their own.
Rafe: What about André?
Ciara: Hey. Thanks for meeting with me.
Theo: Yeah. What's going on?
Ciara: Um...I had a fight with chase last night. He took his suitcase and left.
Theo: For where?
Ciara: I don't know. He's not answering my texts. I've been looking for him for hours.
Theo: Yeah, he's a jerk. I thought you were mad at him.
Ciara: I am, but...
Theo: But what?
Ciara: But... my mom doesn't need to worry about anything else. And I've been a lousy friend.
Theo: He's been a way lousier friend.
Ciara: Theo, come on. He doesn't have anybody else but me and my mom. He's so angry. And I know that what he did to you was awful, but he doesn't-- he didn't mean it.
Theo: What--oh, those texts sent themselves? Come on, Ciara, he hurt my feelings on purpose, so don't try to defend him to me.
Ciara: I'm not.
Theo: Yeah, you are, and I don't want to hear it.
Ciara: Okay, I'm sorry.
Theo: Look, stop apologizing for chase. Just forget about him!
Ciara: You're not even worried that he's out there somewhere?
Theo: No! I think it's better for everyone that he's gone... for good!
André: You know... I ran away once. Because I was falsely accused, just like you. But look at me--I'm back now. I was also judged because of my father's actions--again, just like you. What I needed and what I didn't have and what you have is a good friend.
Chase: [Laughs] Ciara's not my friend.
André: No, no, I don't mean Ciara. You know what? Here, sit. I think what we should do is that you get a room at the Salem inn...just temporarily. Just enough time so you can work out what exactly it is you want.
Chase: Why would you do that for me?
André: Chase... there is nothing I need or want from you. It's just sometimes in life you just wanna do something good because it makes you feel good. That's all. So let me help you.
Jennifer: Hey. Oh!
Abigail: All done.
Jennifer: Thank you so much, honey.
Abigail: Yeah, of course. It's easy and, really, it's great--just fixed a few typos.
Jennifer: I was just--I was so short with Mr. Burns when he accused me of not sending it last night, and I could have have sworn that I did.
Abigail: Mom, you've had a lot on your mind.
Jennifer: Yeah, I-I really have. But that is no excuse that I can give to Mr. Burns, that's for sure.
Abigail: Well, so the press release went out today instead of last night--it's not a big deal, you know. He'll forget about it by tomorrow.
Jennifer: Yeah, I hope--I hope you're right. Uh, how's the baby? How's Thomas?
Abigail: Uh, well, I called to check on him a few thousand times today.
Jennifer: [Laughs] Well, um, you know it's up to you...whether you want to keep working.
Abigail: Yeah, it...I have a lot to think about.
Jennifer: Yeah! I mean... the wedding! How's it going? How are the plans?
Abigail: Um, we're still g-- we're...figuring out the details.
Jennifer: Okay, well, you let me know if there's anything that I can do.
Abigail: I will.
Jennifer: Okay, great. I am going to get this over with now.
Abigail: Mom, wait. Are you sure you're okay?
Jennifer: Yes, honey, of course. Yeah, I'm good.
Roman: Okay, we got, uh, patrols out looking for chase-- train stations, bus stations, everywhere. We'll find him.
Hope: Then what? What if he doesn't wanna come home?
Roman: He will be more than relieved when we find him.
Hope: Thanks. Sorry. I'm just so rattled about everything.
Roman: Course. Hey, you're trying to be strong for Ciara and chase... but what about you?
Hope: [Exhales] It's just all been so much. Losing Bo...again. Everything that happened with Aiden. Dr. Malcolm, my job. Really...kinda don't know who I am right now.
Roman: Hope, listen to me. I'm here for you. You know that. Whatever you need. So please...talk to me.
Hope: I don't even know where to start.
Chad: Hey. How'd it go with your mother?
Abigail: Uh, I decided not to tell her that we're eloping.
Abigail: She's just--she's in the middle of a work crisis and, uh...she wasn't really being herself. But Chad, I don't know, I-I'm thinking that maybe it's not such a good idea for us to elope right now after all.
Chad: Hey, um, some--some people are here. Can we talk about this later?
Abigail: Wait, what? Uh...okay. Love you. Bye.
Rafe: Chad. We have a warrant to search the premises. Any idea where André is?
Chad: He--he moved out. Harold said that he was staying at the Salem inn.
Rafe: So you're not in touch with him?
Chad: No. Hopefully never again--what's going on?
Rafe: Well, we have reason to believe that André broke into Hope Brady's house. There was some vandalism, and things were ta--
Chad: Feel free to look around.
Rafe: You don't seem surprised.
Chad: Well, I don't know what's going on but, no, I'm not surprised that André would retaliate against Hope.
Rafe: Retaliate? Retaliate for what?
Chad: Come on, Rafe. I'm sure Hope told you André's convinced himself that Hope Brady killed our father and that you helped cover it up.
Chase: My dad always said it was rude to eat in front of people.
André: Oh, not at all. You were brought up well.
Chase: I used to think so, but...now I'm not so sure.
André: [Chuckles] I know. I think you and I are kindred spirits. And I think this is A... a win-win situation... for both of us.
Theo: Look, me wanting chase to leave Salem for good is not because I'm jealous, if that's what you're thinking. See, I know you have good taste, so I'm pretty sure you won't be stupid enough and fall for that creep.
Ciara: Well, tell me how you really feel.
Theo: [Chuckles] Look, I don't have a lot of friends...but the ones I do have are the best, and you're the best of the best.
Ciara: Aw...thanks, Theo. Back at ya.
Theo: Yeah, look, chase hurt me, and I could take that. But if he hurts you... I'll hurt him back.
Ciara: Please don't--
Theo: No, don't argue with me on that one.
Ciara: Okay. Thanks for caring.
Theo: I hope I didn't make it weird by caring too much.
Ciara: Ha ha, no... I always feel like I'm able to tell you anything... and I want you to feel the same way.
Theo: So you wanna get some fries at the pub? Carbs always make you feel better.
Ciara: Yeah, you're right. Except you always get grossed out when I dip it in mayo.
Theo: I'll live. Let's go.
Roman: You can start wherever you like.
Hope: I think you know. Losing Bo... the love of my life. I'm struggling. I thought I was stronger--
Roman: Hey, hey. You are strong.
Hope: If he were here, I could lean on him. But he's not, and it's so unfair, and it's all because--
Roman: Because of what?
Hope: [Sighs] Whoever took him from me. I am so... [Sniffles] I'm so angry! [Crying] And I'm scared. I'm lost, I... [Sniffles]
Roman: Of course, you are. Hope... I know it's not the same... but when doc and I got divorced and I was feeling pretty much at loose ends... you know what helped me?
Roman: I needed to feel useful. You've had your work taken away from you on top of everything else, and that's a damn shame. I know. I can pull some strings, get you back on the force. Would you like that?
Hope: [Exhales] That would be nice. But I don't know, I... like I said, I... I don't know when I'll be ready... if ever.
Rafe: André's insane.
Chad: Of course, he is. I mean, I can see André setting up Hope a lot easier than the other way around.
Harold: And these are the last of Mr. DiMera's bags. I was about to send them to the Salem inn.
Mind if I take a look?
Chad: So, uh, you said Hope's house was vandalized. Is everyone okay, the kids?
Rafe: Kids are fine... for the most part. But something was taken which we do hope to--
Agent Hernandez. Found something over here.
Chad: Guess you found what you're looking for.
Rafe: I sure did.
