Ben: You won't drop that match, Abigail. You don't have what it takes.
Abigail: Maybe before, I didn't. But you don't know who I am now, Ben. You don't know how you've changed me. You've threatened me. You stalked me. You terrorized me and my entire family. And you enjoyed doing it. You enjoyed making me beg for my life. You enjoyed knowing that I would never feel safe again. You enjoyed knowing that I'd always be looking over my shoulder. And that I would never be the same again. You didn't just scare me. You changed me into a person...
Abigail: Who could douse you with lighter fluid... [Chuckles] And enjoy watching you go down in flames.
Joey: You look like crap.
Steve: Well, that's funny 'cause I feel like a million bucks. Help yourself.
Steve: I might have had one too many, but I feel fine.
Joey: You and mom get in a fight last night?
Steve: Why would you ask that?
Joey: It's not the first time you've been hammered after fighting with her.
Steve: Don't you have someplace you need to be?
Joey: And I saw the flowers. "I'm not giving up on us, and neither should you"?
Steve: That--that note was private.
Joey: That note was face up on the table... along with a ring. Dad? Why is mom giving up?
Fynn: Hello yourself. How are you feeling?
Kayla: Why am I here? Oh, my God.
Fynn: I'd think so.
Kayla: What happened?
Fynn: Well, you came into work and you collapsed. So I ordered that cat scan that you turned down.
Kayla: I was fine.
Fynn: Kayla, you aren't fine. Look at this.
Kayla: Subdural hematoma.
Fynn: Right. If we're very lucky, it'll go away on its own. If we're not so lucky...
Kayla: I could have an aneurysm or worse.
Ben: You might want to do this, Abigail, but you can't.
Abigail: Oh, yes, I can. I have to.
Ben: Your conscience won't let you.
Abigail: Oh, no, no, Ben. Let's not make a mistake here. My conscience is quite clear. It's really no different than putting down a rabid dog. It's my duty.
Chad: Abby! Abby!
Ben: I love you, Abigail.
Ben: So much!
Chad: What the hell are you doing?
Abigail: What needed to be done. No, no! Don't do that!
Chad: Stop, Abby!
Abigail: Stop! He needs to die!
Abigail: No, no! He deserves it! You're ruining everything! No, don't! Stop! Don't!
Chad: Are you okay?
Chad: Did he hurt you? Abby, did he hurt you?
Chad: What? Are you okay?
Abigail: You stopped me. Why did you... why did you stop me?
Chad: Abby, it's okay.
Abigail: He needs to die.
Jade: Hey, sorry I'm late. Oh, hey, Mr. Johnson.
Jade: Can I have one of your fries? I'm starving.
Steve: Yeah, help yourself.
Jade: Thank you.
Steve: So what are you kids gonna do tonight?
Jade: Mm, I was hoping Joey would finally give me a ride on that motorcycle of his.
Joey: No can do. Haven't earned the right. Unless my dad, who's really, really just an all-around great guy, could, uh, cut me some slack... remember what it's like to be young.
Steve: Forget about it. It's not gonna happen.
Joey: I see I haven't learned my lesson. You see, I abused alcohol, which is a very serious offense. Trying to drown your troubles in booze shows a real lack of maturity.
Steve: Don't be a smart-ass.
Jade: He's right, Joey. No one likes a smart-ass. You know, I've heard from all sorts of people that you were always the most respectful, obedient young person. I think Joey should be more like you.
Steve: You've got spunk.
Jade: Can I be honest with you, Mr. Johnson?
Steve: Can I stop you?
Jade: No. [Chuckles] These fries are terrible.
Jade: Come on, Joey. Let's go to the pub and leave your dad to eat in peace. Always good to see you, Mr. Johnson.
Steve: Good to see you too.
[Cell phone rings]
Fynn: Okay, now that we've established that your condition is a potentially serious one, why don't we cut the crap?
Fynn: Look, this is serious and you know it. So tell me one more time. What was the cause of the initial head injury? And don't give me this cock-and-bull about falling down the stairs.
Kayla: Nice bedside manner--
Fynn: What happened?
Kayla: Okay! I-I was knocked unconscious. I was hit on the back of the head with I don't know what.
Fynn: Who did it?
Kayla: Look, me telling you who it was or why it happened, it really doesn't help you. Let me see that cat scan again that you keep waving in front of my face. Well, you know what? The--the bleeding doesn't look severe enough to require surgery.
Flynn: It was severe enough for you to pass out.
Kayla: Look, I'm not minimizing it, okay? Here, here, this is what I think. We keep monitoring it and we'll make the decision about surgery down the road.
Fynn: Okay, "we" are not monitoring it. I will monitor it. I don't trust you anymore.
Kayla: Look, if anything changes, I promise you I will have the surgery.
Fynn: Okay, you win for now. I'm gonna prescribe you some anti-seizure meds and--
Kayla: And salt tabs to raise my sodium levels.
Fynn: I hate having a doctor for a patient.
Kayla: So do I. [Chuckles]
Fynn: If your condition doesn't improve in a week, I'm scheduling surgery. Agreed?
Kayla: Agreed. But listen, hey, can we keep this between us? I really don't want my family to know about it.
Fynn: Well, I'm afraid it's a bit late for that.
Ben: [Panting and choking] [Screams]
Abigail: Hush little baby don't say a word mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird and if that mockingbird don't sing
Chad: No one gets in or out but that.
Abigail: Mama's gonna buy
you a diamond ring
Abigail: Hush little baby don't say a word mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird and if that mockingbird don't sing mama's gonna buy you
Chad: Hey, Abby--
Abigail: Don't touch me, Chad. Just don't touch me. [Whispering] It's okay.
Chad: We need to talk.
Abigail: [Humming] You let him live. Why did you do that? Why did you do that? Why did you let him live?
Chad: I did that for your sake.
Abigail: [Scoffs] [Crying] You let him live.
Chad: Because I couldn't let you kill him. Abby, okay, think about it. You are upset and you're-- and you're not thinking. You would regret killing him for the rest of your life.
Abigail: Chad! At least I'd have a life. [Crying] He's going to kill me. Yes!
Chad: JJ and I would never let that happen.
Abigail: You can't stop him, Chad. You can't stop him. Nobody can stop him.
Abigail: The fire would have stopped him. Yep, it would have. That fire would have stopped him, but you put that out. So when he kills me now, it'll be your fault. Hush, little baby don't say a word mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird and if that mockingbird
Jade: Hey. So I heard that blue window is playing in Chicago the week we're on spring break.
Joey: Yeah, and they're definitely sold out.
Jade: And my ex-boyfriend is one of their roadies and he can get us in for free.
Joey: Your ex-boyfriend's a roadie?
Jade: Yeah, one of them is.
Joey: "One of them"? How many are there?
Jade: Um, I also have a girlfriend who will let us stay at her place and we can stay in Chicago the whole week. Sounds like fun, right?
Joey: Yeah, it does, but... no, I just think that--
Jade: But what do you think? Give me one good reason you should stay in Salem.
Kayla: It's too late?
Fynn: Well, I left Steve a voicemail saying you'd been admitted.
Kayla: Did you say why?
Kayla: I wish you hadn't done that.
Fynn: Look, I'm sorry, Kayla. I know you don't want your family to worry. I just thought that Steve needed to know.
Kayla: No, I don't want him to be any part of this. At all.
Fynn: I don't understand. I thought you two were getting married.
Kayla: It's on hold indefinitely. Is my cell phone around here someplace? I'd like to call Steve and tell him not to come.
Steve: It's too late, sweetness, I'm already here. Now come on. What's going on? Are you all right?
Kayla: Fynn, could you give us a second?
Fynn: Right. Sorry.
Steve: His message said you were in the hospital. He didn't say why. What happened?
Kayla: It's none of your business.
Chad: We need a squad car here now. Ben's here.
Chad: He's tied up, but I need you here ASAP.
JJ: Abigail, T-Thomas, were they hurt?
Chad: No, they're okay, but we need an ambulance. Ben was hurt pretty badly. Now just get here. I need to get back to Abby. I just talked to JJ and the police are gonna be here any minute.
Abigail: No, we don't have a lot of time. I need to kill him now.
Ben: [Screaming] [Panting]
Steve: Kayla... I know you're upset with me, but please don't shut me out, not now.
Kayla: I don't need this. Fynn shouldn't have called you.
Steve: Well, it's a good thing he did. You're in the hospital. There's something wrong. Come on, let's--let's get through this together.
Kayla: I'm fine. Really, it--it's nothing.
Steve: I don't think these monitors and IVs are for nothing.
Kayla: Well, Fynn is just-- he's just overly cautious. And these monitors just say that I'm fine. And they're gonna take out the iv and I'm gonna go home. But, you know, I really do need to take it easy and fighting with you isn't exactly doing that.
Steve: So let's not fight. Just tell me what happened.
Kayla: Maybe you should just back off and give me some space. You know, this condition could be stress related and have I been under a lot of stress lately? Yes, I have. And when did it start? The second that you walked off that elevator out there.
Steve: I know that. And I'm sorry.
Kayla: I know you are. It doesn't change anything. I just need time. Trust me. And if we're gonna have a chance to be together in the end, you have to give me time now. Time for me to make sure that I'm doing the right thing.
Steve: Okay. I get it. But, Kayla, I can't-- I-I mean, I physically can't walk out of here and leave you here without knowing what happened.
Kayla: I have what's called a subdural hematoma, which means that there's been some bleeding on the outside of my brain, which causes pressure, and then I passed out.
Steve: Is that life-threatening?
Kayla: It should go away on its own.
Steve: You're shining me on.
Kayla: No, I'm not. Look, Fynn is watching me like a hawk. I'm a doctor. Everybody here around me is a doctor. I-I'm gonna be fine.
Steve: What if it doesn't go away on its own?
Kayla: Then I'll have surgery to relieve the pressure.
Steve: How did this happen? Did you fall down, hit your head or something?
Kayla: It's from Ava knocking me unconscious.
Abigail: Take him. Take him.
Abigail: Take him!
Chad: Abby, Abby-- listen--
Abigail: Take him.
Chad: Listen to yourself. You are asking me to take our infant son so you can go upstairs and kill a human being.
Abigail: Take him.
Chad: That's not you.
Abigail: Take him.
Chad: That's not you. Okay, look at our son. Look at him. Look at him! He needs us. Ben will never be able to hurt you or Thomas again unless-- unless you walk up those stairs and you murder him. And then our son-- our baby boy is gonna grow up without a mother. Now the police, they're on their way. And if you do what you say you want to do, then that lullaby that you were just singing him will be the last one that you ever sing.
Chad: It's okay.
Chad: No one should ever have to go through what you went through, but the three of us, we are not gonna let that psycho destroy our lives.
Abigail: Thomas... [Crying]
Chad: Okay, we are stronger than that. Look at me. You are stronger than that. I know you are. You were right. We do not have a lot of time and we need to talk, okay? I need you to tell me everything that happened here so I know what I can and cannot tell the police when they get here. I want you to look at our son. Okay? And I want you to think about how much he needs his mother. And I need you to tell me every detail about what happened here. It's okay.
Joey: I don't know, I just... I just feel like I shouldn't be away from them for an entire week. I mean, they're at it again--
Jade: Joey-- well, look what happened-- look what happened the last time you tried to help them out. You unleashed a crazy lady on them and then killed the crazy lady and almost went to prison.
Joey: You know, if you were just a little louder I think my Grandma in the kitchen could hear I killed someone.
Joey: Maybe you're right. Maybe they don't need my help.
Steve: Kayla... I'm so sorry.
Kayla: I know you are. But you weren't the one that hit me on the head. She was.
Steve: But it's because of me that she was ever in our lives to begin with. We both know that's true. And I'm understanding more and more why you can't get past the way I live, but I just want to be--
Kayla: Come on, Steve, please. Can you just give me some space? Just having you here, going around and around, I just...
Steve: Listen, if I promise not to pressure you into anything, will you just give me a chance to get you through this?
Kayla: I don't need any help. I'm not an invalid. I-I-I don't need you hovering over me. I took care of myself and Joey for a long time without you around.
Steve: That's right. Everything you're saying is true. But you left out one thing. You love me, Kayla. You told me so. And you know damn well how much I love you. And no matter what spin you put on it, you're in a serious situation here. There's no reason for you to be pushing me away except fear.
Kayla: After these last few months, I think I've earned the right to be fearful. And even though I don't... I don't blame you for what's happened, I can't erase the fact that I am lying in this bed because of the danger that you brought into our lives. And our baby could have gone to prison for murder. And now he's trying to figure out how to live with that. So you can stand there and say that... love conquers all, but... I've learned the hard way that that's not true. And now I just... I just have a splitting headache, so... you want to help me out? Just go. Just go away. Please. [Sobbing]
Chad: It's okay.
Chad: It's okay.
Abigail: When... [Crying] When I saw Ben standing there staring at me... I thought I was crazy. And then when he touched me, that's when I knew that he was real. And I had Thomas with me. I had Thomas with me and he was in the same room as the baby. [Crying] And I told him.... [Sobbing]
Chad: Okay, keep going.
Abigail: [Sniffing] So I had to get Thomas away from him and I... I made him think that I... I made him think that I wanted to... be with him so that I could get him away from Thomas. And told him that I wanted him to take me to bed. [Sobbing]
Chad: It's okay. That's okay. That was so smart, all right? You were so brave, and you did anything you could to keep Thomas safe.
Abigail: [Sobbing] I... I wanted to take Thomas away from him, but, Chad, I really... I wanted to hurt Ben, I did. I wanted to hurt him so that he felt just as much pain as he made all of us feel. [Crying] [Sniffing] [Panting] So I... [Sniffling] Ben...
Chad: Okay, just breathe. Just breathe, just breathe. Just breathe. Just keep talking to me.
Abigail: When we were in the bedroom, we were kissing and I was on top of him and then I-I reached over and I grabbed the scissors and I stabbed him and then...
Abigail: Then I tied him up and then you know what happened. Then I l-lit him on fire.
Chad: Yeah, okay.
Abigail: I put him on fire then. [Sobbing] That's what happened.
Chad: I am so sorry that I was not there for you. Okay, and I'm so sorry that you had to do all of this alone. Okay, I'm sorry. But you did everything you had to do to keep Thomas safe. Yes, you fought back. It was self-defense. You had to do it.
Abigail: No, no!
Abigail: No! No, it wasn't self-defense.
Abigail: No, Chad! You're not listening!
Chad: It was self-defense.
Abigail: Listen to me! It was not self-defense. I wanted to kill him. I wanted to kill him.
Chad: Stop it.
Chad: Stop, stop, stop.
Abigail: I wanted to kill him.
Chad: It was self-defense, and when JJ gets here, that is exactly what I am gonna tell him. You are gonna sit here, and you are gonna look at your son, and you are gonna-- you are gonna think about how much he needs you in his life, do you understand me?
Chad: Where do you think you're going?
Steve: Kayla says the surgery is no big deal, but it's brain surgery. That's a big deal, right?
Fynn: It's not certain that Kayla will need surgery.
Steve: Well, when will you know? Maybe she shouldn't put it off.
Fynn: Look, I'm sorry, but Kayla made it pretty clear she didn't want me talking to you about her condition. That's entirely up to her how much or how little she wants to share with you. So if you'll excuse me. Here's your prescription for the anti-seizure medication. We'll be monitoring you, and see how you respond.
Kayla: Thank you.
Fynn: Kayla, I'd really like you to stay tonight, just so we can check you out in the morning, first thing.
Kayla: You know, I know the trauma and I know the procedure. So I'll be very careful at home, and I think I'll be a lot more comfortable there too. I promise you if anything happens, I'll come right back.
Fynn: I don't like it, but I know I'm just wasting my breath.
Kayla: Yes, you are. Thank you. You've been great.
Fynn: You call me any time, day or night.
Kayla: I promise.
Fynn: Did I tell you I hate having doctors for patients?
Kayla: Yes, you did. Thank you.
JJ: Cuff him to the gurney.
He's in shock.
JJ: Cuff him, both hands, and don't take your eyes off of him. Lanigan, I want you to be in the bus with him. Crater, I want you to follow in the squad car. I don't care what anyone else tells you. He is in custody. At least one of you is with him at all times. And if he makes a move, shoot him.
Ben: Arrest her. Arrest her...
Lani: What did he say?
JJ: He's a psycho. It doesn't matter what he says. Get him out of here.
Ben: [Panting] Fire...
JJ: Move it.
Ben: Bitch... flaming fire...
JJ: The paramedics say he has second or third-degree burns on his legs.
Chad: They're gonna find a stab wound too. When she found him in the living room, he dragged her up to the bedroom, so she stabbed him in the shoulder in self-defense, then she threw a kerosene lamp at his feet when he came after her.
Lani: So you were there.
Chad: No, she told me.
Lani: Then I think we should hear that directly from her.
Chad: I don't think so. She's in no shape to be questioned.
Lani: And that's not your call.
Chad: It sure as hell is my call. Now maybe if you guys had done your job in the first place, my wife wouldn't have gone through what she just went through. Now you want to strong-arm me, I will have an army of lawyers after you and every newspaper in this country will have a front-page story about my wife's heroism and your staggering incompetence!
JJ: Easy, Chad. Easy. We can do it in the morning.
Chad: If I say so, and I will only say so after my wife has seen a doctor. You know, after everything he has done to her and was about to do to her, I would think that you guys would be treating my wife as a victim and not a witness.
JJ: Can I talk to her? Just to tell her I love her.
Chad: She's exhausted. Keep it short. Mr. Kendall um...
JJ: It's over. Abs? He won't ever bother you again. I love you and I love Thomas. Just thank God you guys are all right. It's going to be okay. Chad and I are gonna make sure that everything is okay. I'm gonna stick around for a while. But I'll say good-night before I go.
Chad: It's okay. I cleaned the bedroom. I told the police that it was self-defense and they believed me. It's done. It's all over now.
Abigail: [Exhales] Damn you, Chad. Damn you. Damn you, Chad! Because of you, I am never gonna be free now. Ever. [Cries] How could you do this to me? How? [Crying] [Sobbing]
