Chad: Is Thomas okay?
Abigail: Yeah, he's asleep. [Sighs] It's just so hard for me to leave him, but you can keep an eye on him with this. It's just so hard for me to be so scared all the time, so freaked out. I just feel so vulnerable.
Chad: I know, and... hey, the police will find him soon enough. Okay? I know it's hard. The guy traumatized you and traumatized a lot of people, but it--it just-- we have to do our best to stay positive.
Abigail: Stay positive? What's there to be positive about? Everywhere that I look, Ben is there. The hotel, Chicago. [Sighs] Here staring back at me on our wedding. I mean, it just doesn't make any sense. How could he be out there following me and no one can find him?
Chad: I know, I know. I don't understand it either.
Abigail: What I do understand is that he is some kind of evil genius. I mean, he--he has gotten by police and guards. He's gotten over and under fences. He's gotten through locked doors. I mean, he had all of us thinking that he was in Louisiana when actually he was here in Salem the entire time. [Sighs] Chad, what?
Chad: I lied. Ben wasn't in Louisiana.
JJ: All right, let me get this.
Gabi: No, no, no, no. I was not giving you a line when I said I would pay. This is to show my gratitude for you watching me and Ari last night.
JJ: All right.
JJ: I wasn't going for the check. May I see your hand?
JJ: Look, as far as being grateful and all, I was just doing my job. Besides, I-I like being your personal bodyguard.
Gabi: Well, all right. It meant a lot to have you there. And I can't believe I have my little sugar bear back. My sweet, little Ari. It's just, you know, it's-- I can't totally relax knowing that the person that did this is still out there.
JJ: Yeah, we won't let her out of our sight.
Gabi: Oh, definitely. Definitely. [Sighs] JJ, I just-- I want this nightmare to be over... and just want to make sure that everyone comes out safe and-- and sound in the end.
Kayla: Have you guys seen Steve?
Rafe: He's with John.
Kayla: Is he all right?
Marlena: He is fine. They'll both be up in a few minutes.
Rafe: Kayla, this is my mom. Mami, this is Dr. Brady.
Adriana: A pleasure to meet you.
Kayla: Oh, same. I didn't know that you were in town.
Rafe: Yeah, well, none of us did. She was actually kidnapped by the same people that took John, held hostage, given a sedative, and God only knows what else. So I was just wondering if you could take a look at her?
Adriana: It's not necessary. I'm fine. Just a little groggy, that's it.
Kayla: Any nausea?
Kayla: Any abdominal pain?
Kayla: Well, I'd still like to have Dr. Long take a look at you.
Rafe: Right, we're better safe than sorry, right?
Kayla: Yeah, we'll put her in room six, all right?
Rafe: Okay, come on.
Marlena: Oh, my goodness. Is he all right?
John: He's all pumped full of drugs.
Kayla: Well, we'll get a tox screen on him right away.
Paul: [Groans] No.
Paul: No, ugh.
Dario: Okay, as soon as you're able you should get the hell out of town. I'll book you a flight. I don't care where it goes as long as it's far away.
Eduardo: First I got to make sure Rafe is safe.
Dario: Rafe is a big boy. He doesn't need you to protect him. He never did before.
Eduardo: I was doing the best I could, that's all I could--
Dario: Maybe you don't understand. Rafe, Gabi, and I... we've been fine all these years without you. None of us need you. So the best thing you can do, the only thing is leave Salem and never look back.
Kayla: There he is.
Paul: What's up? Why is-- why is everyone looking at me?
Paul: Is a-- is anyone gonna answer me?
John: Everything's all right. You just had a little episode, that's all. Here, sit down.
Kayla: Here, take a seat. We're gonna take you to get some tests, okay? Great. And you need to get some too, all right?
John: Yeah, sure.
Steve: How's your mom?
Rafe: Stubborn. Aside from that, fine. What I don't understand is what the hell she was doing in that warehouse.
John: Hmm, might've been a backup plan of Yo ling. Just a way to draw Eduardo back in if things went south with Paul and me.
John: If you guys hadn't ridden to the rescue, I don't know what my father would've done, given he was-- he's totally out of his mind.
Steve: So glad we could help.
John: Hell, you did more than help. Paul and I, Adriana... just so damn lucky to be surrounded by friends like you and family.
Gabi: Hey, you're okay!
Gabi: Is it over?
Rafe: Yes, I'm good. It is. Hey, hello.
Dario: Looks like we have the whole gang here.
Rafe: Yep, whole family.
Gabi: Well, almost.
Rafe: Actually, there is something that I need to tell you.
Adriana: Gabi! Dario!
Gabi: Mami? Mami! Mami.
Rafe: Come on, come on, come on. It's a little more private in here.
Gabi: Mami--Mami, cuentame, what happened, Mami? What's going on?
Rafe: I don't know. Just give me a sec. I'll tell you what happened, okay? We went to the warehouse. That's where we found Mami. She was there with, uh, with John and Paul.
Gabi: Wait, Paul was there too? Mami, que paso? What happened?
Adriana: Really, I don't know. A week or so ago I was walking to the carniceria near my home. Some men drove by. They grabbed me. They push me into the van. I think they give me a shot of something. That's it. I don't remember. Then I woke up in that room.
Rafe: Did they hurt you?
Adriana: No. There's no pain. I don't have any bruises.
Rafe: And no one said anything to you?
Adriana: No. No one told me anything. Rafael, mijo, I know you went to that horrible place to save your friend, and that man's son, but how am I connected to that? What are you guys keeping from me? You know something. Tell me.
John: How you feeling, kid?
Paul: Weak. Fuzzy.
Marlena: That's to be expected.
Kayla: We did a tox screen, and we're flushing the drugs out of your system. I'll be back to check on you in a little while, all right?
Marlena: Thanks, Kayla.
John: Sorry you had to go through this. I feel... I really feel responsible. If I hadn't been looking into my past, none of this would've happened, and now that I know what my real mother and father were like, I think the past was better left behind.
Kayla: You're so brave... going after John like that. Not that I'm surprised. You've never been short on courage.
Steve: Yeah, just brains, right?
Kayla: From time to time.
Steve: Well, I'm glad everyone's all right. Could've been a hell of a lot worse.
Kayla: Yeah, if it wasn't for you and Rafe, and-- I mean, John's lucky to have a friend like you. I'm just relieved that you-- well, like you said, could've been worse.
Steve: You trying to say you were worried about me?
Kayla: Of course I was worried about you. I've never stopped loving you. That's what makes this all so difficult. I just don't know if I can forgive you.
Steve: I understand. I'll give you all the time and space you need. No matter how long it takes, I'll be waiting for you.
Abigail: Why would you do that, Chad? Why would you lie to me? Why--why would you tell me that he was in Louisiana? I mean, if I had known that that psycho were anywhere even near Salem, I never would've gone through with the wedding, I--
Chad: Well, that--that's exactly why I didn't tell you. Okay, I'm not gonna let him manipulate our lives like that. I'm not gonna give him the power to ruin our wedding day.
Abigail: I honestly-- I don't even understand your-- your logic, Chad. What if--what would you have done if he would've come here on our wedding day with a gun and he would've held everyone up at gunpoint like he did to me at the cabin? What would you have done?
Chad: He wasn't gonna be able to do that. I had my security team watching the property the entire time.
Abigail: He crept right past them. He was staring at me. Everybody had their guard down. What would you have done if he would've taken Thomas?
Chad: My guard wasn't down.
Abigail: No, well, it seemed like you were a little preoccupied, and obviously, your security here is--is useless.
Chad: Okay, well, the police and my team searched the entire property, and they found absolutely no trace of him.
Abigail: I saw him. He was right there. He was staring at me through those windows. What-- you think that I'm just losing my mind, Chad? You think I'm just making this up?
Chad: No, no, I-- I don't. It's just that, you know, like I said, he traumatized you so maybe you're just letting your fear manipulate your imagination.
Abigail: I am not imagining this. Ben is back. He is stalking me! I know he is.
Marlena: Why don't I give you two some father-son time? I'll check with belle and let her know what's going on.
John: All right, sweetheart. I'm sorry I got you in this.
Paul: No reason to be sorry. You have every reason to look to your past and find your roots. That stuff's important.
John: [Scoffs] I think we'd be better off if I never knew that my father and your grandfather was a sadistic maniac.
Paul: I'm not dwelling on that, and you shouldn't. The important thing is, well, this experience has shown me even more than I had already known... just what kind of man that my father is. Brave, strong, intelligent. Someone who'll do anything for his family. I'm proud to have your DNA. You know, that's my takeaway. [Chuckles]
Adriana: Rafael Alejandro!
Rafe: Okay, Mami. There's plenty of time to go over the details. Right now we just need to focus on getting you better.
Adriana: The doctor said I was okay. They found nothing in my blood. Whatever drug was in my system is gone now. I just want to know why I was being held captive. Please, tell me.
Rafe: We're still investigating that. What about Tia Estrella? Did you call her and let her know that you're okay?
Adriana: Ay, dios mio, Estrella! She--she must be dying.
Gabi: Yes, let's go. Let's use my phone. There's signal outside, Mami. Let's go.
Rafe: That's right.
Adriana: Estrella must be wondering where I--
Rafe: All right.
Dario: Obviously you don't want to tell her about Eduardo.
Rafe: Well, obviously, yeah. I think that she's been through enough trauma already. Don't feel like she's ready to face the man who broke her heart all those years ago and abandoned our family and, um, you know, when she finds out why he left and what kind of man he really is, it's just gonna end up breaking her heart all over again.
Chad: [Sighs] Look... I doubted you. I didn't think you could handle knowing Ben was nearby. You're right. He obviously snuck onto the estate somehow in-- I don't--he obviously shredded the nightgown.
Abigail: Yeah. [Sighs] [Crying]
Chad: Come here. I'm sorry.
Chad: I didn't want to ruin our wedding day. I'm sorry. Can you forgive me?
Abigail: Chad... okay, listen, I understand what you were trying to do. I--I just-- we're married now, okay? We can't have any more secrets between us, ever. Even if it's because you're trying to protect me. You got to trust me that I can handle whatever obstacles come our way, and we have to face things together. We have to be partners. We have to be a team, Chad.
Chad: Yeah, I know. You're right, and as a team, I think maybe-- I think we should put our heads together and go on the offensive. I have an idea, but we're gonna need some help. E.
John: Partner, I just can't-- I can't tell you how amazed I am that you'd risk getting thrown back in jail by jumping bail and crossing the state line to come and find me.
Steve: Yeah, it just shows you how thick I am, since it turns out you were in Salem the whole time.
John: I'll tell you what, if the judge revokes it, I'm going to bat for you, and I'm sure Rafe will too. You're...you're a hell of a friend and a bona fide hero.
Steve: You know who the real hero is? Your little woman right there.
Steve: I got into a very nasty situation in that warehouse, and she knocked the dude out cold.
John: Yeah, well, we're-- we're very lucky to have a couple fantastic women in our lives, aren't we?
Steve: I know how lucky I am.
Marlena: It turns out Paul's gonna have to spend a few more hours here.
Kayla: At least.
Marlena: So since he's resting, why don't you go on home and you can get some rest too?
Kayla: That's a great idea. I'll keep you updated.
John: All right, all right. There's just, uh, one thing I need to do first.
Rafe: She doesn't need to know about Eduardo right now. Let's wait, okay?
Dario: We'll have to tell her sooner or later.
Rafe: Well, later. Better.
Dario: Did you talk to Tia Estrella?
Adriana: Yeah, she had no idea I was even missing.
Adriana: Someone sent her an email from my address saying I was in Salem and that something was wrong-- an emergency with Rafael and Gabriela.
Rafe: Wow, Yo ling really covered all his bases, didn't he? Thank God you're with us and you're safe.
Adriana: Yes, it's a miracle.
Adriana: And to be back together with my children. My beautiful children. My granddaughter. [Chuckling] Talking on the phone, even in a video, it's not the same as being here with Ari. Ari. Me encanta. And you've grown so big. Look at you. Aw. Dario, my son. I'm so happy you're back. I'm so happy you're here.
Dario: It was time to be home. Be with family.
Adriana: That's the way it should be. Our family all together. Except for our precious Arianna. But she's always in our hearts, verdad?
Gabi: She is, and we've got her little namesake here. She reminds me so much of our sister.
Adriana: Yes, me too. Especially when she smiles. That's who you are named after, querida, your Tia Arianna.
Gabi: Um, I will be right back. I'm gonna go check up on my friend. I'll be right back.
Rafe: All right.
Adriana: Entonces, al grano.
Dario: No entiendo, Mami.
Adriana: No, si entiendes, y muy bien. Ustedes dos, you are keeping a secret from me, and I demand to know what it is.
John: Hey, you awake?
John: Glad you're all right, my friend.
Eduardo: Thank you, John. I'm sorry, man.
John: The hell you sorry about?
Eduardo: That I turned my back on you. I got so focused on Rafe, I let you get caught.
John: You saved your son's life. Never apologize for that. Besides, we're all safe and sound. Well, we're safe, anyway. And if you hadn't given that information to Rafe, Steve and Marlena wouldn't be here.
Eduardo: You have any idea who was behind all this?
John: Yeah, some guy named Yo ling.
Eduardo: Yo ling. Never heard of him.
John: He was my father. He was driven mad by-- by disease. He was--he was just corrupted by power.
Eduardo: Is he in custody?
John: No, he's dead, and so is his phantom alliance.
Eduardo: The--the threat to us?
John: No one's coming after us anymore. We're-- we're free from our past.
Eduardo: You know, we may be free from the threat, but... after all these years, I've started to think that the past is something you can... never fully escape from.
[Knocking on door]
Gabi: I thought you were sleeping.
Paul: Oh, no, just resting. On and off. Please, please stay.
Gabi: What happened, Paul? Look, if you don't want to talk about it, I understand.
Paul: No, it's probably good to talk about it. Although everything's a little bit fuzzy. I do know one thing though, my-- my grandfather was a freak. He wanted to turn me into some kind of soldier puppet. He wanted to take my dad's blood.
Gabi: What? Take his blood?
Paul: And transfuse it to rejuvenate himself.
Gabi: Wow, that's, um-- that's crazy. That's horrible.
Paul: Yeah. I'm just glad that everything turned out fine. And, well, I don't know, I'm remembering now. Your mom was there, right?
Gabi: Yeah, she was. It was a huge shock, but she's okay now, and she's acting like herself. She's happy to be with, you know, her kids and her granddaughter, so--
Paul: I bet.
Gabi: Well, I'm gonna go check up on her and get Ari from the nurse. I just wanted to check up on my modeling partner and see if you were all right. And with a few touch-ups, you'll be good as new.
Gabi: No problem.
Paul: Thanks for coming by.
Adriana: Bueno, digame. What is the secret?
Rafe: Mami, there is no secret.
Dario: No, no hay nada. Nada.
Adriana: [Sighs] When you two were little boys, you were wrestling and got into my garden. Rolled around smashing my petunias, se acuerdan?
Rafe: Ah, with the dog.
Adriana: Yeah, the dog, and then you blame it on the dog.
Rafe: You're right. Well...
Adriana: But I could see right through your lies, just like I can see right now.
Rafe: It is so good to see you, but I need to get down to the warehouse and, uh, check on some forensics.
Dario: Yeah, and I have a phone call I need to make. Un segundito.
Gabi: Where you going?
Rafe: Gabi, look after Mami, okay?
Marlena: What are you thinking?
John: Oh, just that-- doc, as much as I'm grateful that you risk your life for me...
Marlena: Go on.
John: You just shouldn't have done it. There's too many people that need you, not just me. You got your family, you got your friends, you got your patients, you got--
Marlena: I'm right here. I'm right here. With the man I love.
John: I get that, yeah. We're both right here. You just didn't need to take that kind of risk. Steve and Rafe were on it.
Marlena: John... don't you know that I'm not the kind of woman that can just sit around when something needs to be done? And I don't understand why you resent me for rescuing you when you were grateful to Rafe and Steve for doing the same thing. Is it because I'm a woman?
John: No, you're my woman. I--come on, you know what I mean, that you're-- doc, you're my life. If-- you are the woman that I love more than anything in this world, and if anything were to ever happen to you--
Marlena: I know. I know that. I feel the same way about you.
JJ: So you think Ben did this?
Chad: Seems pretty obvious.
Abigail: There's no doubt in my mind.
JJ: All right, let's put it in a bag and I'll have it tested for Ben's fingerprints. Although, I don't--I don't know if we're gonna find anything. He's been pretty slick about hiding his tracks.
Chad: Yeah, well, I don't get it either, JJ. I mean, he watches our every move undetected, and I have guards everywhere. It's like the guy's a ghost. Slipping through walls or something.
JJ: Except we don't know if he actually got into the mansion. Abigail spotted him that one time, but there's actually no physical evidence that he was here.
Abigail: What are you-- what are you saying, JJ?
JJ: No, it's just that-- I don't know what to think.
Chad: I have an idea.
Abigail: Tell us, please. What's your idea?
Chad: It's a way that we can trap Ben. But we're gonna need your help, JJ.
Chad: So what do you think?
JJ: I think it's risky. Abs, how do you feel about it?
Abigail: I will do whatever it takes to put that psycho back in jail.
Chad: Yeah, I got him. I'll check.
JJ: Abigail, I am so sorry that I went along with the lie about Ben being in Louisiana. I'm sorry.
Abigail: It's okay. It's fine, JJ. I'll forgive you this time, but we are siblings, okay? You can't-- you can't do that. Don't ever go behind my back again. We're Deverauxs. We got to stick together, okay?
JJ: Okay, got my solemn oath.
Abigail: I mean it. Okay.
JJ: It won't happen again. How you holding up?
Abigail: Honestly, uh, not great. This whole nightmare, Ben was behind me, but ever since he escaped, it's just bringing back all these memories. I mean... [Clears throat] I keep seeing it, you know, when he kidnapped me and held me at gunpoint and made me deliver Thomas, and how he was nowhere near the person that I thought he was. He killed will and Paige.
JJ: Abigail, Abigail--
Abigail: And if he ever--
JJ: Stop it. Don't go there. I promise you we'll catch that bastard before he can hurt anyone else. I promise.
John: Yo ling's brain was being eaten away. Had Topits disease. He also had a blood disorder. He thought that if he got a full transfusion from me, it could buy him a couple years so he could cleanse the world of all the vermin and evil.
Marlena: I am so sorry that your search for your father, your family, and your... understandable need to know about your past, ended up like this.
John: I'm sorry too, but... this was my father, timothy Robicheaux. Saved lives in the war and died in battle himself. He's a true hero. And this is the man that I choose to mourn.
Rafe: You know, for a moment there, I thought you and I could patch things up. You saved my life. I won't forget that. But then I remembered what kind of damage you can do.
Eduardo: What are you talking about?
Rafe: Did you know that my mother was in that warehouse? That she was kidnapped by the same people that took John?
Eduardo: Oh, my God. I didn't know that. You got to take me to her--
Rafe: No, you're not going anywhere. The last thing that she needs is you back in her life. Please. For God's sake, just stay away from her.
Abigail: Here he is.
Chad: He's still sound asleep.
Abigail: Oh, my little angel. He's such a good sleeper. God, I just feel so much better when he's in my sight and I can see him.
Chad: Yeah, he's here now. You can relax. I'll set him over there.
Abigail: I can't relax, Chad. What if-- Ben still thinks that Thomas is his. What if he takes him, and what if he does something to our precious little boy? What if he comes--
Chad: Abby, it's--that's not gonna happen.
Abigail: How can you be so sure? How? I mean, look, I understand that you're trying to put a positive spin on this to protect me or whatever, but in this case, it's just hurtful and irresponsible. Ben is a psycho serial killer.
Chad: Abby, you have to ca--calm--
Abigail: No, okay. I am not going to calm down, so please don't tell me to do that. I've been rethinking the plan, and... [Sighs] I think that we need to leave, and I think that we need to go further away. I think that we need to go to Europe.
Chad: No, Abby, we have to face this head on. Don't you get it? We cannot keep running away. That's just gonna prolong his hold on us. We have to stop him.
Abigail: What if something happens to Thomas?
Chad: Abby, listen to me. Nothing is gonna happen to our son, ever, and no one is ever gonna hurt you or Thomas, I swear it.
Abigail: All right. Let's do it. Let's trap that son of a bitch.
Rafe: You don't think that my mother's been through enough? She's confused by what happened, and I don't think she could handle coming face-to-face with the man who abandoned her and her family all those years ago, and you risked her life because of your past, and John's father obviously kidnapped her because of you.
Dario: I'm assuming by the look on your face, Rafe told you about the latest development.
Eduardo: Okay, what--what-- you what, you want me to tell you that I feel bad about it? Obviously I didn't--
Dario: Yeah, I do want you to tell me you feel bad. I want you to feel like total crap for what you put us through, especially Ari and Mami.
Eduardo: Okay, I really feel bad, okay? God! It's very clear to me I was completely selfish to want to come back to Salem and reconnect with my family. Believe me, the moment I'm able, I'm out of town.
Adriana: I've been looking all over for you guys. I hope I'm not intruding, but I saw Dario--
Rafe: Mami, Mami.
Adriana: Que demonios pasa aqui? It cannot be.
John: You know how strong Paul is, both mentally and physically, so you can only imagine just how effective he would've been if Yo ling was successful in turning him into his new soldier.
Marlena: Thank God you got him out of that room before that could happen.
John: Yeah. Thank God it's all over. It's all over.
Yo Ling: The first world is diseased. Toxic. A plague to be wiped from the face of the earth. Eradicated. Decimated. You will be the messenger. You will be both the end and the beginning.
