Aiden: Hey. Look at you getting around so much better than when I last saw you. No wheelchair, huh?
Chase: I thought I wasn't gonna see you for a couple weeks.
Aiden: Yeah, change of plans. You know, last minute.
Chase: Everything okay with Hope?
Aiden: Yeah, fine. It's great. Sit down. [Sighs] Boy. Oof.
Chase: You're not telling me the truth, are you?
Aiden: You think I'm holding out on my main man? Come on. Okay. Hope and I do have a lot to work out.
Chase: Something really bad happened, didn't it?
Hope: Oh, baby. It's so good to see you.
Ciara: I'm so glad to see you too, Mom. Shawn told me what happened.
Hope: I'm okay.
Ciara: I did a search on ruptured spleens, Mom. You could have died.
Hope: But I didn't.
Ciara: Why did this happen?
Hope: Hey, Kayla says I am going to be fine. Ciara, everything is going to be all right.
Ciara: Well, if it is, then it's because of Rafe. And you know it.
Rafe: Chicken and baked potato?
Rafe: In the middle of the day?
Adriana: Well, laugh if you want to, but when I found out, I said to myself, "If I ever see my son again, I'm going to feed him well."
Rafe: Yeah, I guess so. Will you tell her she's overreacting, Pops?
Eduardo: Overreacting? Yeah, she's overreacting to you being stuck in an abandoned DiMera safe house with no backup with André, the devil himself, waiting for you.
Adriana: You risked your life, hijo. And you did it for a woman who cares so little about you that she went off with another man.
Rafe: Right. You're being too hard on Hope.
Adriana: Too hard on the woman you had to rescue?
Rafe: She's the one who rescued me, okay? She is the one who found me. She came to tell me that it was over with the other guy, but nobody knew where I was.
Eduardo: 'Cause you didn't tell anybody.
Rafe: Okay, thank you. Not necessary, by the way. Okay, yeah, and when she did find me, I was strapped to a bomb, but she refused to leave. She said she would rather die than leave me there alone. You know that's how it happened.
Adriana: I know a lot about Hope Brady.
Rafe: Yeah, but you don't know what she's been through.
Adriana: How could I not if you go on and on about it every time her name comes up?
Rafe: Yeah, exactly. I go on and on about it. I tell you, but you don't listen because you already made up your mind about her. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't be here right now.
Adriana: You wouldn't have been in that house, with the bomb.
Rafe: Oh, my God, you know, I can't. I can't. I mean, it--
Eduardo: I think your mom's point is that you didn't have to do it alone.
Rafe: There was no time to call for backup.
Adriana: Does Hope appreciate what you did?
Rafe: Of course she does, Mami, of course, yeah, she--
Adriana: I suppose she does, now that you have saved her life again.
Gabi: Mami, please just stop. Oh, my God, I had to come as soon as I heard. Hey, are you okay? Are you all right?
Rafe: I'm okay. I'm okay.
Gabi: Are you hurt?
Rafe: No, no, no, I'm fine. okay?
Gabi: Are you sure, Rafe? I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Rafe: I'm fine.
Gabi: Mami, why do you keep yelling? Obviously the only thing that matters is that Rafe and-- and Hope are alive, okay?
Ciara: Rafe is crazy about you. How could you go away with Aiden?
Hope: It's never gonna happen again, believe me. I told Aiden I want him to leave Salem.
Ciara: Is he gonna do it?
Hope: He's out of our lives. That's the most important thing now.
Ciara: You sure?
Ciara: Then you're right. That is the only thing that matters.
Aiden: Okay, look, I don't want you worrying about Hope and me, okay?
Chase: It's just when you told me you two were going to the lodge, you were really happy, like everything was gonna work out with you two.
Aiden: I-I remember.
Chase: And now you're back early. And I know you're keeping something from me.
Aiden: Okay. Hope and I, we had a very nice time at the lodge. But spending that time together made me see our situation a lot more clearly. We're back early because e to back of
Chase: It's her, isn't it? She doesn't want you. Mami, thank you.
Rafe: Yeah, yeah.
Adriana: Well, I'm glad everything right, come on.
Eduardo: Hey, hey.
Rafe: Dad and I, we'll get the dishes.
Gabi: You sure?
Eduardo: Yeah, you two chill, and we're gonna clean up.
Gabi: Okay. Mami, you want to go out on the porch? It's a really nice day.
Adriana: Sure. [Dramatic music] : I want to know if what I heard is true, that you are still planning to go after Aiden Jennings.
Rafe: And if I am?
Eduardo: Well, after what he did to you and Hope, I would like to help.
Rafe: No, thanks. I appreciate that.
Eduardo: I know how to handle myself. You know I do.
Rafe: I know, Dad. I know. I just don't want you involved. I mean, don't you have enough problems on your own?
Eduardo: Well, I don't want you going into another situation like that all by yourself. I won't.
Eduardo: You won't?
Rafe: I won't.
Eduardo: Okay, well, I just want to say again, you need help; I think it should be me. You change your mind, my offer stands.
Rafe: Well, thank you.
Eduardo: You're welcome.
Gabi: Mami, I'm sorry that I was so hard on you before, but listen, you-- you just need to lay off of Rafe about Hope a little, okay?
Adriana: [Scoffs] It's just that your brother is such a good man, and Hope, she has caused him so much pain.
Gabi: Yeah, but she didn't mean to. She's a good person. Really, she is. I mean, she's--she's better than the other women that he's been with in Salem.
Gabi: Rafe, he's just, uh, not a good judge of women. You know? Except for Hope.
Adriana: Oh. Well, whether she's good or she's bad, she doesn't want your brother. And all I want now, hija, is for my family to enjoy each other. Live your lives like normal people.
Gabi: Normal? Uh, Mami, my dad was a hired assassin and my brother's a cop. I did time in prison for killing a man. I don't--I don't think we're ever gonna be normal, Mami.
Adriana: Well, okay, okay. But why bring more trouble? I mean, even if Hope is a fine person, she still became involved with this Aiden Jennings. She's trouble. And if Rafe knows what is good to him, he will turn his back on her and everyone connected with her. [Phone beeping]
Ciara: My supervisor at Shady Hills just wants to know why I'm not there.
Hope: Mm, well, you better get going, then.
Ciara: No, I can just tell him that you're in the hospital.
Hope: No, no, I'm fine. You like this job, right?
Ciara: Well, it's not a job. It's a volunteer position. But, yeah, I like it. It's opened my eyes, that's for sure.
Hope: Hmm, to what?
Ciara: To how important psychiatry is to people's lives and how much they just want to feel better.
Hope: Well, I'm sure they feel a lot better when they see your beautiful face. I just wish, uh--
Hope: That you didn't have a job where you had to run into Chase.
Ciara: Yeah, seeing him there every time I go, it's-- it's really weird.
Hope: Did he say something or do something?
Ciara: No, no. He just--he says that they have him on all these meds that make him feel kind of dead inside. So all he ever talks about is how much he hates himself for what he did to me.
Hope: Baby, please promise me you'll be very careful around him.
Chase: Did Hope dump you?
Aiden: Okay. I didn't come all the way out here to talk about Hope and me, okay? I'm here to find out about my boy. How are you doing?
Chase: What difference does it make how I'm doing?
Aiden: What are you saying? It makes a hell of a difference to me.
Chase: Well, Dad, I don't feel like I exist anymore. It's like I'm invisible.
Chase: When people see me walking down the hall, they just look the other way.
Aiden: What the--what people?
Chase: Patients, staff. It's--they either are afraid of me or they avoid me.
Aiden: Well, do you want me to talk to your doctor?
Chase: No, don't talk to my doctor. She tells me I need to open up, but when I do, I catch her looking out the window.
Aiden: All right, then I'll find you another doctor that's--
Chase: Dad, they already know what you did. You pulled strings to get your rapist son out of prison and into a nuthouse.
Chase: Yes, and now Ciara Brady is an intern here. And wait till the word gets out that she's the one I raped, Dad.
Aiden: Okay, look, that all happened because I wasn't around. Okay? But I am back now. And I am asking you, Chase, I am begging you, give this place a chance. It has a wonderful reputation.
Chase: That's why Abigail DiMera tried to burn it down and took off.
Aiden: First of all, I don't know anything about Abigail's situation, and frankly, I don't care, okay? The one person I care about is you. Son, you got to face the facts. You may not like it here, but it's a hell of a lot better than prison.
Chase: It's the same. Except in prison, maybe they wouldn't look at me me to do? Hmm? Do you want me to talk to Dr. Robinson or her boss? I will make sure they start treating you differently. Because if they don't, believe me, I--
Chase: You're gonna do what? You're gonna sue them, Dad? Don't you get it? They're never going to treat me differently. I'm the guy who raped a sweet girl like Ciara Brady. And you know what? The one person who does treat me differently around here is her.
Time for group therapy, Chase.
Chase: Sure. Um, thanks for coming, Dad. Maybe it'll all work out with Hope.
Ciara: Hey, Chase.
Chase: Something's wrong. What is it?
Aiden: Are you sure?
Hope: Remember when we went to the hospital to have blood tests for our marriage license, remember that? Actually, you know what's really funny, Aiden? Is that we actually joked about it being bad luck for you to see the bride on our wedding day. But it was something we wanted to do together. We talked about having a wonderful life together, you and me... Ciara and Chase.
Hope: I'm sorry. I just forgot. Forgive me. You're not supposed to remember any of that.
Aiden: What are you talking about?
Hope: Shawn dug up those test results, Aiden. That blood was yours. The man I married wasn't an impostor. It was you.
Can't keep away from it, can you?
Rafe: Thanks again for your offer to help.
Eduardo: You're more than welcome.
Gabi: What offer are you guys talking about?
Rafe: Well, Dad offered to use some of his-- some of his old connections to help me prove that Aiden Jennings was behind the explosion.
Gabi: Wait, your old connections?
Eduardo: Well, I, uh-- I don't remember saying exactly that.
Rafe: Well, how else were you gonna find anything out?
Gabi: Yeah, Papi, please--
Eduardo: No, no, no, don't worry. Your brother said no. He'd rather turn elsewhere for assistance.
Rafe: See, I thought we had an understanding.
Eduardo: Yeah, no, I understand. I understand that I can trust you when you say that you're not going to do it alone.
Adriana: [Sighs] [Clears throat] I know that nobody cares about what I think, but I'm gonna say it anyway. I want you to let this go.
Rafe: [Scoffs] You know Aiden Jennings owns the house where the explosion went off? You know that? I am telling you he told André to get rid of me while he and Hope were out of town. So should I let it go? Hmm? Do you want him to get away with that?
Adriana: Of course not.
Adriana: But this man, Jennings, he seems to be very good at covering his tracks. What if you can't prove anything? What if he comes after you again? Hope knows who he really is now. He's got nothing to hide.
Adriana: And has she changed her feelings about you?
Adriana: What if you were to walk away from Aiden Jennings and from Hope Brady?
Rafe: And do what, hmm? Do what? Start over again with Blanca?
Adriana: She's a very lovely--
Rafe: No, would you forget about it, okay? I want nothing to do with Blanca. There's nothing between us, and there never will be.
Eduardo: She's in the room. Hi--hi, Blanca.
Rafe: Oh, my God. I'm so sorry.
Rafe: No, no, no. No, I am the one who should be sorry, you know.
Eduardo: Adriana, uh, did you forget that I was, uh, gonna take you to the club? I mean, you made dessert. We were gonna go get coffee and cake, you and me.
Adriana: [Scoffs] You never said that.
Eduardo: Yes, I--you see? She forgot. Con permiso. Come on, time to take off your apron, Mrs. Hernandez. Your date has arrived. There you go, yeah. You kids, uh, have fun. And, um, stay out of trouble.
Gabi: Bye. I'm gonna go call, um, Arianna's school, yeah.
Rafe: She okay?
Gabi: Mm-hmm. She's just had a little rash thing. I'm gonna check it's not itchy.
Rafe: Oh, a rash?
Blanca: [Clears throat]
Rafe: I'm really sorry that you--that you had to hear that. I'm really--
Blanca: It's okay.
Rafe: I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.
Blanca: No, no, it's fine. I know you weren't trying to hurt me. You were just... saying the truth, right? Listen, I've told your mother to stop trying to push us together.
Rafe: No, I know that you have; it's not--
Blanca: Yeah, it's her idea, really. I have no expectations of my own. Actually, I'm very grateful you let me stay here, you know.
Rafe: Yeah, well, you know... [Chuckles] If you can put up with the battling Hernandez family, then you have more patience than me.
Blanca: Yeah. Well, you people need your privacy, so now that your mother helped me get a job at the hospital, I think I can afford, you know, my own place.
Rafe: Oh, okay. Well, uh, take your time, though, you know. Find a place you like that's-- No need to rush out of here. I'm gonna go to the hospital, so, um...
Blanca: [Clears throat]
Rafe: I'll see you.
Blanca: To see Hope?
Blanca: I'm glad she's doing better.
Rafe: Me too.
Ciara: Nothing's wrong, Chase. Why would you even say that?
Chase: Because you seem so sad and scared. And I was hoping it wasn't just because you saw me.
Ciara: I have a job to do. I can't just stand around talking to anybody.
Chase: Do you know what happened between your mom and my dad? 'Cause he was just here acting like everything was fine. But he came back early from that trip with your mom. And now he's saying he's gonna give her her space, which I don't get 'cause I know how much he loves her.
Ciara: Yeah. He's a real loving guy.
Chase: Whatever happened is eating him up. He's putting on an act like, "Hey, you look great," but I know he's miserable. And if you know why, please tell me. He's all that I have.
Ciara: Maybe we should talk.
Aiden: How did you get in here?
What's the matter, pal? Hmm? Creeping you out to look at who you really are?
Aiden: You're not who I am. Okay? You're not even real.
[Chuckles] Who are you trying to kid, hmm? I'm the part of yourself you hide while you're arguing for justice in front of a judge or sitting in the first pew at Mass. Trouble is, it's getting harder and harder to keep me under wraps, right? And now you got the truth, staring you right in the face.
Aiden: What truth is that?
You are a spineless jellyfish who wants to be a big man, hmm? Did you really believe a woman like Hope Brady wouldn't eventually see you for what you are? [Chuckling] Oh, man. But look at it this way: you did yourself a favor, because now she wants nothing to do with you. She is done, son, and you can move on with your own life.
Aiden: What if I don't want to move on? I mean, what if I know that I am nothing without her?
[Scoffs] Come on. You trying to make me puke right now?
Aiden: Look, I just need to find a way to convince her to forgive me.
And what way is that, pal? Hope is onto you. If you even go near her, she just might put a bullet in your head. Wake up! Smell the coffee! You will never have Hope Brady again.
Eduardo: You're not eating your cake.
Eduardo: Your cake. And you didn't say a word all the way over here.
Adriana: You forced me out of my own house. You do the talking. I'll eat the cake.
Eduardo: All right, uh, I'm gonna ask you a favor. You think you could let your son make his own decisions about women? If Hope is the woman he wants, who are we to be trying to change his mind about that? He's a grown man.
Adriana: A grown man who keeps picking out women that break his heart.
Eduardo: Yes, but it's his heart. And Hope Brady is a fine person. She's not this--this monster you seem to have somehow made her out to be. So you think you could, uh, give her a chance, maybe? For me?
Blanca: Let me ask you something. What does it mean when the ad says, um, the apartment has a galley kitchen?
Gabi: Oh, that means that if you're sitting on your sofa in your living room, cooking on your stovetop.
Blanca: Thank God I asked.
Blanca: So how's your little girl's skin condition?
Gabi: She's fine.
Blanca: Oh, no, no! [Groans] Don't do that!
Gabi: Okay, what's wrong? What's going on? What's happening?
Blanca: [Exhales deeply] Every time I'm looking at an apartment and I try to go back to the-- you know, to the listing, it just takes me back to the beginning and it erases everything, you know? I'm ready to scream, really.
Gabi: Are you seriously looking for apartments?
Blanca: Uh, yeah. I overstayed my welcome here. I have a job, so I guess I need a--you know, my own place.
Gabi: Yeah, no, that's fine. I get it, makes sense.
Gabi: I just wanted to make sure that was the real reason.
Blanca: What other reason would it be?
Gabi: Well, that you don't think you stand a chance with Rafe.
If you do Chase, you don't have to.
Ciara: No, it's okay. because I work here and this is my job. But it doesn't mean that anything has gotten better between you and me. You raped me. And part of me is not gonna be able to get over that. You were my friend. And I trusted you. And you just threw that in the garbage. And no matter what you do, you're not gonna be able to get that back. Not ever.
Chase: I'm sorry. Did your dad teach you how to do that?
Aiden: You're just trying to work on me, destroy my confidence. Look, Hope still loves me. I could see it when we were alone together.
Maybe. But that was before your buddy André made it look like you were gonna obliterate Rafe with a bomb.
Aiden: Stupid, stupid, stupid of me to have him deal with that.
Finally, he speaks the truth.
Aiden: Rafe was alive and well. And Hope still came up with the idea for us to go away together. I mean, it was her choice, and she chose me just like she did before.
Yes. Yes, she did. But now you got André working overtime to make it look like you got Hope out of town because you put a hit in motion, which you kind of had.
Aiden: I can fix this. I know I can.
Well, then you better fix it fast. Because if Hope, Rafe, the rest of the Salem PD buy André's story, you, my friend, are going to prison for a very long time. other or the fact that your mother won't stop trying to play matchmaker.
Gabi: If you say so.
Blanca: Really. Hey, your brother, you know, he's a nice guy. He's very good-looking. But even though he was the reason your mother invited me here, he was not the reason I said yes. I thought, you know, I could have a nice life here.
Gabi: Okay, but if Rafe was available, you would--
Blanca: Well, he's not. So what's the point of talking about it, hmm? Listen, I have a new job. And with your help, I could get my new apartment. So I'm a happy person. Now, can you make this thing do what I tell it, please?
Gabi: I-I can try my best.
Blanca: Thank you.
Adriana: So you want me to give Rafe and Hope my blessing?
Eduardo: That would be nice. But if you can't do that, maybe you could just stay out of their way.
Adriana: Mm. Even if I do, it won't make any difference. Their relationship is doomed.
Eduardo: Now, why would you say that?
Adriana: Her first husband is dead. And her second husband seems to be a tool of the DiMera family.
Eduardo: Okay, her first husband died of cancer. And she was lied to, brilliantly, by the second. Now, how is that Hope's fault? If anything, she's been a victim of terrible circumstance.
Adriana: So what about our son?
Eduardo: Well, again, he's a grown man, Ana. Nothing you or I can say or do is ever gonna change the way he feels. I mean, haven't you seen him when he talks about her? Rafe is in love with this woman.
Adriana: [Sighs] I just wish he wasn't so trusting. I don't want him to get hurt by the person he loves. Yeah. See, you used to have a good reputation in this town. You have to find a way to earn people's respect again. And at the same time, show them you are a man to be reckoned with. Now, you've got the smarts to do it, but you're a nobody right now. Forget about it, you're less than nobody. What you need is a position of power, a place where you have control over André DiMera or anyone else out there who wants to hurt you. You see where I'm going with this? Huh? And don't forget. I got your back. You and me, we're in this together.
ed, and then you can go back to any of the listings that you liked.
Blanca: Okay. All right, thank you.
Gabi: You get this, right?
Blanca: Yes, of course. You're a very good teacher. [Chuckles] Now I have a lot of apartments to look at. Well, I have to get ready for work.
Blanca: Thank you.
Gabi: No problem.
Blanca: Thank you so much for helping me.
Gabi: No big deal.
Blanca: Hey, let me, um, get you a drink one of these days. And bring JJ with you. And maybe if he has a cute single friend...
Gabi: I thought you weren't looking for a guy.
Blanca: I'm not, but why not keep my options open, right?
Gabi: Yeah, let me see what I can do.
Chase: Why did you say that about my dad?
Ciara: Well, you're gonna find out anyway.
Chase: Find out what? to back off my mom, it's because she hates him now.
Chase: Why? What happened?
Ciara: She found out the truth about him. Everything that he said when he got back was a lie. He didn't get kidnapped right after he proposed to her, like he said. He was trying to get her to fall in love with him and to get her to marry him, and he was telling you and me that we were gonna be this big, happy family. He lied to all of us.
Chase: No. And I don't know why you're saying that.
Ciara: Because he's the one that married her. He's the one that went back home with her on their wedding night.
Chase: You're wrong!
Ciara: Then how come the blood sample that he gave right before the wedding matched the one that he gave when he got back to Salem?
Chase: That can't be true.
Ciara: It is true. Which means that he was the one planning on killing my mom right from the beginning. [Dramatic music] [Monitor beeping]
Rafe: Oh, hey. Trying not to wake you up. Couldn't stay away.
Hope: Did you win the Kentucky Derby or something?
Rafe: Are they too much?
Rafe: Are you sure?
Hope: Uh, for me, right?
Rafe: Yeah, the nurse is trying to find a bucket to put them in.
Rafe: Yeah. Uh...[Chuckles] I spoke to Kayla.
Rafe: Yeah, and she said she's gonna try and spring you from this place in a couple days.
Hope: Oh, perfect.
Hope: I can't wait to get home and sleep in my own bed.
Rafe: Well, I just want you to know that I'm gonna do anything I can to make that a smooth trip for you. Anything at all.
Hope: I have what I need: my family around me... And you.
Eduardo: I know that I caused a world of grief. I tried to explain why I did what I did, why I had to leave you all those years ago, that if I hadn't gone, you and the children would have been in grave danger constantly. I'm grateful that that threat has passed and that you and I have a-- a second chance to be happy. Don't you think Rafe deserves that chance too?
Adriana: But... Yeah, why not? No one listens to me anyway.
Eduardo: Well, that's not true. Thank you.
Adriana: I want you to know something, Lalito. I am very impressed with the way you have conducted yourself. You have listened to our anger, our pain without giving up. You saved Rafe's life even though it could have meant losing your own. And trying to make some kind of restitution to the families you hurt... [Exhales deeply] That's an honorable thing to do.
Eduardo: To hear that from you... means more than I can say. So...
Adriana: I wonder where Dario is. Didn't he want us to take a look at some designs or something like that?
Eduardo: Maybe I should call him.
Adriana: No, no, no. I'm going to go look for him in the back.
Eduardo: You weren't in my coat when I got dressed.
