Neighboring areas have power, but I can't say for how long.
Aiden: All right, I'm not following you.
Well, the power company temporarily diverted its electricity to us, so that's gonna mean an overload to our systems.
Aiden: All right, so if we're gonna do this press conference, we have to do it as soon as possible--is that what you're saying?
If you want a press conference, soon is better.
Aiden: All right.
Officer, I need to get to the, uh, box.
Yeah, yeah, sure.
Thank you. Pardon me.
Look, I want to talk to you two because I keep going back to this Stefano DiMera case. There's a few things in there that just don't set right with me. I was hoping that you two could... help clarify a few things.
Hope: We went over every detail of Stefano's case at least a hundred times.
Rafe: The facts are all right there. They point to André DiMera being the murderer.
Aiden: Except he wasn't.
Rafe: No. He's still our guy. He just paid someone else to talk so he could be set free.
Aiden: Hmm. So you... still believe he's guilty?
Hope: Yeah. Yes.
Rafe: What the hell do you expect us to say?
Aiden: The truth. A little cooperation. See, as D.A.... I can make this case disappear forever. Or I can re-open it... take another look-see. And dig...a little deeper. See, if I decide to re-open this case, I know...there's a few things in there that are gonna trouble me. The murder weapon, for instance. Do you know for certain, hope, that André stole Bo's gun?
Hope: Not provable. But it was found in his possession.
Rafe: He stole it from her house so he could set her up for murder.
Aiden: Yeah, see, that's not provable either, though. That's just a theory...right? That André wanted to kill his father...and have you take the fall for the murder?
Rafe: Do you have a point, Aiden? Because we have three psychos on the loose.
Aiden: Well, maybe you could just quickly answer this question: Why would André keep the gun? Why would he dump the body in an abandoned building? I mean, that's--I look at those things, and that sounds like the work of someone who's trying to improvise. Now, we're talking about André DiMera--experienced criminal. Doesn't sound like something he would do. Right?
Aiden: You think? It's the attorney general. Has some questions about the curfew--I have to take this. I'll, uh, be right back.
Aiden: Aiden Jennings.
Hope: Everything I did that night was wrong. I lost it. I snapped. I shot Stefano, and I dragged you into the cover-up.
Rafe: No, you did not drag me into anything. And frankly, we both know that Stefano goaded you into shooting him.
Hope: I'm still guilty of murder.
Rafe: I don't question you holding a press conference, sir. In fact, I think that it is vital to do so, but... why in such a public venue?
Abe: Absolutely not.
Hope: It would be much better to do it from here.
Abe: The day Orpheus, Clyde, and Xander have me cowering is the day I'm no longer fit for office. Frankly, I...I resent your challenging my authority. We wouldn't even need a press conference if you and the rest of the Salem pd had done their job and brought these bastards in!
Steve: Here's some decaf.
Kayla: Decaf? Seriously?
Steve: Yeah, seriously. Last thing you need is caffeine racing through your system.
Kayla: That is exactly what I need.
Steve: Kayla... we've been out there all day looking for Joe and Claire, and you haven't even recovered from surgery yet. What you really need to do is lie down and try to get some sleep. Or just rest.
Kayla: Sleep? Rest? Are you kidding me? Our son and our niece are out there somewhere--god knows where--being terrorized by some lunatics. Can you sleep? Can you rest?
Steve: But I haven't been through what you have.
Kayla: To hell with what I've been through. They have been kidnapped, and I'm not gonna rest until they're home safe and sound.
John: Cell's not working?
Marlena: Uh, no, no, uh... the power came back, so I... I was able to charge it before. You know, I haven't been able to reach Shawn and belle. They must be beside themself knowing what's going on here right now.
John: We're gonna get through this, doc.
Marlena: You know what? I feel like it's my fault. If I just...if I hadn't taken Claire out of the house--
John: Listen to me. Claire is smart as a whip... and she is strong just like you are. She's gonna find a way to outsmart these bastards--I know she will. And then she's gonna lead us right to her and Joey.
Joey: [Whispers] Hey, we need a plan--we better get the hell outta here!
Belle: [Whispers] Yeah, I have one! If I can just get my hands free.
Joey: How can you do anything when they never take damned eyes off us?
Belle: Shh! Just chill out, okay? I know exactly what I'm doing.
Xander: I know you wanna use these...little brats as human shields to get us out of town, but it could backfire on us too. Slow us down, get us caught... or worse.
Orpheus: Xander, when I ask for your opinion, you'll know I've completely lost my mind. We're not adopting them. They are of value to us, and when they cease to be, we'll deal with them.
Belle: You won't get away with this, you know. My grandfather will stop at nothing to have you back behind bars!
Orpheus: Is that so? I can't tell you how much I look forward to giving him the opportunity to do just that.
Steve: Sweetness. Listen. I feel the same way you do. But I am worried about you. You just had surgery. I'm worried about you getting so worked up.
Kayla: No! I'm--I'm-- I'm trying to stay calm. I'M...I wanna be strong, and I wanna be here for Joey when he comes back. And I'm gonna--I'm gonna take him in my arms and I'M... I'm gonna hold hi--I...I just wanna hold him in my arms. That's all I want.
Steve: Me too.
Kayla: We just need... we just need one clue, one... one lead... and then we'll find him.
Steve: [Whispers] That's right.
Steve: Let's hold on to that.
Kayla: Yeah. [Sobs]
Ciara: I keep thinking that I'm gonna wake up from this horrible nightmare... but it's not a nightmare, is it? It's actually happening. Those creeps have Claire and Joey.
Theo: I mean, I just hope to god they're okay. I don't know what I'd do if anything happened to her. Or Joey.
Ciara: Me neither.
Theo: Well, you're looking at me funny.
Ciara: Well, it's...it's just something really lame to even be thinking of right now.
Theo: Right, well...just say it.
Ciara: Well... I can see how worried you are. Especially about Claire. And I know that it's because you have a thing for her. And I know that waiting and not knowing makes it harder on you. You really do care about Claire, don't you?
Rafe: Well, with all due respect, sir...you're under a lot of stress. So are we. But I think that it is rather unfair of you to accuse us of incompetence when our men are working tirelessly around the clock to bring these fugitives in.
Abe: Well, then they're not working hard enough. This city is slipping into anarchy. The citizens are looting, brandishing firearms. If we don't get this under control, this is not going to end well! For anyone! Especially the hostages!
Abe: [Stammers] I'm sorry, I-I, uh... that was... terribly insensitive.
Hope: It's okay.
Abe: No, no, no, it's not. Look... at the risk of losing one of my best detectives, I would understand if you want to step back from this investigation and be with your family.
Hope: No. Absolutely not. Claire is my family. I'll get in touch with the bureau... report back to you as soon as I have something.
Abe: Good. Good. Thank you.
Rafe: Thank you, sir. Well... I'm sorry. I'm sorry, he's, uh... he's under a lot of pressure, you know?
Hope: Claire could be going through god knows what right now and...and Joey.
Rafe: We'll find 'em. Look at me. Come on. We...are going to find them.
Marlena: I wish I had the same confidence in Claire that you do. Look, I know she's smart. And I know she's tough. But--but she's also so cavalier about this whole thing. She was barely listening when you had the family talk.
John: You think that didn't register with me? That's why I reviewed everything with her again.
John: Hey, punkin' did you hear anything I was talking about earlier?
Claire: Say what?
John: Ah. There's my answer.
Claire: Oh, hey, granddad, I just put these ear buds in. Of course I was listening.
John: [Laughs] I know you were. So, hey, just for the heck of it... if, um, if something happens and you find yourself in danger, what's your game plan? Punkin'... I didn't give you this necklace to add to your bling collection, sweetheart. I gave you this necklace because I love you so much and I want you always protected.
Claire: Yeah, I love you too.
John: I know you do. So listen to me very carefully. If you think for one moment that your life is in danger, you just press this little charmy thing on your necklace here, okay? And what it's gonna do is activate a transponder. It's gonna go right to my cell phone with your exact location. I will be right there! Do you understand?
Claire: I got it.
Marlena: I'm glad you spoke to her--I'm glad she knows exactly what to do. I just hope she gets a chance to use the transponder.
John: What we have to do is alert Steve and Kayla about that necklace. More than likely, Orpheus will be holding Claire with Joey, so with any luck, we're gonna be able to rescue both of them and bring 'em home together.
Belle: Hey, my grandfather's so much smarter than you. You won't even see him coming.
Orpheus: Well, he certainly cares a great deal about you. Which means he'll do anything to get you back, including play right into my hand. So you see...it's a win-win for me. You and little Joey here are our "get out of town free" cards.
Joey: Yeah, if you get out of town. You really think our parents and the cops are just gonna let you walk away? Not after you killed my dad.
Belle: Hey. Oh, my god, Joey. No, you don't even know. Oh, my god, no, he isn't dead! Your father is not dead! Yeah, he just outsmarted him with a Kevlar vest, pulled one over on this jerk, just like my grandpa john will.
Orpheus: I'll give you this, kid... your old man is resourceful. But his resources are about to run out.
Joey: But he's alive. He's alive, which means you're going down!
Orpheus: Oh, spare me the melodrama, kid.
Orpheus: Salem is in a state of chaos because of me and my crew. When we're ready to make our move...we will strike. And then you, well... most of you, anyway, can get back to your boring, mundane lives.
Xander: But only after they dish out the ransom money for you punks.
Orpheus: You talk too much. I'm going out to do a few things in preparation for the...press conference this afternoon. Keep an eye on them.
Xander: Why do I have to babysit?
Orpheus: Because I asked you to.
Xander: What about Clyde? Where's he disappeared to?
Orpheus: Clyde has his own errand to attend to.
Clyde: [Chuckles] Yeah.
Clyde: Hey, Jeremiah. I just picked up what you left for me... and is it ever a beauty.
Ciara: So, uh, you never answered my question. Maybe I shouldn't have asked. I mean, under these circumstances, it is...kind of trivial, right?
Theo: Yeah, I guess.
Ciara: But, hey, it's a distraction. I mean, we know that Joey and Claire are gonna be fine, so...
Theo: Yeah. Yeah, we--we do know that. And, I mean, sure, I have a thing with Claire, but right now I'm worried about both of them, her and Joey. I just can't imagine how scared they must be.
Ciara: I can, unfortunately. I know how terrifying it is.
Aiden: Uh, hey. I heard about the, uh, the raid on the docks. Any intel on the fugitives?
Hope: A group of vigilantes decided to go after them. There was gunfire, but no sign of the fugitives.
Aiden: Yeah. Hey, uh, sorry about Claire and Joey. I'm sure you're worried sick.
Hope: Yeah. I am. Excuse me.
Aiden: Hope, before you go, there's something I-I wanna talk to you about.
Hope: Aiden, please, not now.
Aiden: Yes, hope. Now. I really must insist.
Steve: You are the man, john. Always one step ahead.
Kayla: I don't understand. If Claire has a device, and she knows how to use it, what's the hold-up? Why hasn't she activated it yet?
Marlena: Well, maybe she hasn't had a chance to use it yet. Or maybe Orpheus has discovered that she has it.
Steve: If it looks like a necklace, why would he suspect anything?
John: He wouldn't. I'm sure that Claire will find a way to activate the transponders.
Kayla: We should get going. Abe is gonna give his press conference at the square, and we should present a united front.
John: Hey, partner.
John: We can't underestimate Orpheus. If he feels the walls closing in, he's gonna assert his power, so... we're gonna need to be ready to roll if those bastards make a move.
Steve: I'm ready.
Xander: You sure this plan of yours is gonna work?
Orpheus: If I wasn't sure, I wouldn't be carrying it out, would I?
Xander: Just asking.
Orpheus: Instead of asking pointless questions, why don't you focus on your part in said plan... and remain silent. I'll be back shortly.
Joey: Hey. What were you trying to say before?
Belle: In my necklace.
Joey: What necklace?
Belle: Oh, god! No, no, no, no, no, no... oh, my god...
Xander: Quiet! Can't hear myself think with you two yammering on! [Exhales] Whining... and complaining...like the spoiled little brats you are. Pathetic, entitled. Think the world owes you a living, don't you, sweetheart? Well... think again.
Clyde: Oh, this is perfect. Just perfect.
Xander: Good news, my friend. So...handling the transfer to the offshore account shouldn't be a problem. I do have a couple of questions, though. Hello? Stavros? You're breaking up. Hold on.
Xander: Oh, what the hell's going on here? You try any crap like that again, and I'll shut you up permanently. And that goes for you too.
Orpheus: Kiddies misbehaving?
Xander: I say we throw them in a sack and drown them like kittens.
Orpheus: Well, fortunately, you are not in charge. They're worth more to us alive than dead.
Xander: So how's all this gonna work?
Orpheus: You'll see.
Hope: You insist?
Aiden: I would just like for us to go somewhere a little more private so we can talk--
Hope: Aiden, if you haven't noticed, there's a crisis of major proportion going on in Salem. And as district attorney, I'm sure there's something far more important you could be doing other than talking to me right now.
Aiden: Hope...I'm just asking for a little of your time so you and I can talk.
Hope: I said no.
I think you should--
Rafe: What's going on? What?
Hope: He wants to talk. Like I said, this isn't a good time.
[Aiden clears throat]
Rafe: See... I-I thought that we made ourselves clear. Did we not? Hope doesn't want to have anything to do with you anymore. Now, what's it gonna take for you to get that through your thick skull?
Aiden: [Laughs] I don't know who you think you're talking to. But what I need to talk to her about is between she and I, okay? It's personal.
Rafe: Oh, is it personal? I'll tell you what. I'm gonna make it personal between me and you if you don't back the hell off.
Clyde: I'm about ready to roll on this end, brother.
Orpheus: Good. Remember...don't make a move until you hear from me. I wanna make sure that the good people of Salem get my message, most especially...my enemies.
Clyde: Yeah, you and me both. I think my message is gonna be a little bit more direct. By the way, my man Jeremiah says the raid on the dock was courtesy of the Kiriakis camp.
Orpheus: The old man seems to be losing his touch. From all the gunfire, one would think that Kiriakis and his men were convinced they had us cornered...when, in fact, they weren't even close. Huh. Well, maybe he's not in charge any longer.
Clyde: Well, victor was definitely off his game during my time in Salem. But I hear that his younger brother Deimos has allied with him and...together they could be a force to be reckoned with.
Orpheus: [Laughs] They'll be dead, you fool. And we'll be long gone... before they have a chance to do anything to us.
Houston: Mission allergy escape.
Rafe: You wanna talk about what was going on between you and Aiden? He was pretty adamant. He needed to talk to you about something.
Hope: I have no idea. I mean...no. I have no idea what he wanted to tell me.
Rafe: All right.
Hope: I-I don't get it. He's relentless. Unless, of course, he's thinking that maybe because I bandaged his hand the other night at the pub, maybe he thinks there's still something between us?
Rafe: [Chuckles] Yeah...[Mutters]. You know what I think? I think that he's the type of guy who's gonna take anything, any moment, big or small, and put it under a microscope and try and find something that he can hold on to.
Hope: Yeah. Yeah, maybe you're right.
Rafe: Ohh...I just can't stand that he came back. Now you gotta deal with that on top of everything else.
Hope: Thank god I have you, though.
Rafe: [Softly] Yeah. We should get going.
Hope. Yeah. To be continued?
Rafe: Oh, yeah.
Abe: Marlena, Kayla, look, I've been at police headquarters all morning, and we still don't have a lead on where Joey and Claire might be. I-I'm sorry. I wish I had better...better news. The swat team's arrived. Look, I will check in later.
Steve: What's taking Claire so long to activate that necklace?
John: She'll find a way. I know my...granddaughter. What the hell?
Steve: What's wrong?
John: No signal. Hell, I don't even have any bars.
Marlena: You can't get through?
John: I had a signal earlier. I don't have anything now. Damn it.
Marlena: What if, uh, what if Claire's trying to reach us? What if she's tried to get through and she can't? What if she's made the responder work, but she can't reach us?
John: Whoa, doc, let's just hope that's not the case, okay?
Orpheus: Showtime. Go and stand behind our guests. And when I give you the cue, remove the gag from Claire's mouth.
Xander: Why? You wanna let her cry for her grandparents?
Orpheus: [Exhales] Use your head, man. If we're gonna get them to give us a ransom, they're going to need to hear from one of the kids. It might as well be the one from the family with the most money.
Xander: What if they give away our location?
Orpheus: How on earth would they do that?
Clyde: Son of a bitch. He's the worst of them all.
We have speed, Mr. Mayor. Five, four, three, two.
Abe: Good afternoon. I'm mayor Abe carver. These past few days have been harrowing and challenging for the people of Salem. Three convicted felons have conducted a reign of terror that has sparked panic and, in some cases, violence.
Xander: "Salem under siege."
Abe: Despite the rolling...
Xander: I like the sound of that.
Orpheus: Stay tuned, my friend. The best is yet to come.
Abe: In an effort to inform the public that the Salem pd, along with the FBI and the mayor's office, is doing everything in their power to apprehend these fugitives and to safely free the hostages. Now, that having been said, I must address the city-wide looting, vandalism, and vigilante activity. This kind of behavior will not be condoned and tolerated. And anyone engaging in this activity will be arrested and charged... to the fullest extent of the law. Now is not the time to forget who we are as citizens of Salem. This is our home. And despite what's going on, now is the time to remember the pride we all have in our city.
Abe: For your own safety, think before you act. And please adhere to the curfew. And remember, in a situation like this, taking matters into your own hands is not the answer. I know you've all seen these escaped prisoners on the news. If you see any of these men, please do not...
Orpheus: I've had enough of this wind bag.
Abe: Call 911--
Orpheus: Sorry to interrupt your speech, mayor carver, good as it is, but it occurred to me that you and your fellow Salemites might like to see us in the flesh. Mug shots can be so unflattering, don't you think? I am Orpheus, part of the trio of terror that has, as your own broadcast suggests, Salem under siege. And you're right, Mr. Mayor, the good people of Salem should be afraid...very afraid. Because we're not going to stop until we get exactly what we want. Now, if you'll permit me... what is happening to these two could just as easily be happening to you... if we don't get what we want.
Rafe: Find out where the signal is coming from...now!
Belle: Hey, grandma, granddad, please help us!
Marlena: Oh, dear god. She's not wearing the necklace.
[Dramatic musical buildup]
Rafe: I don't care how compromised the base station is. Find out where that signal is coming from now, damn it!
Orpheus: Now, I realize Christmas is still a few months away... but I must confess, I've never been a patient man. So, with the help of my associates, I've managed to put together what we might call a wish list. $20 million will be transferred into an untraceable offshore account of our choosing. We will, of course, be providing you with the routing and the account numbers. When we have received confirmation of the transfer and we are safely out of the country...then...and only then will we reveal the whereabouts of the hostages. But I warn you... if our demands are not met, chaos and terror will continue to spread across Salem like a plague.
Abe: How the hell do you follow that?
Aiden: People need reassurance more than ever.
Hope: Nothing yet?
Rafe: No. I'm still hoping they're gonna be able to trace the signal.
John: What the hell happened to her necklace?
Marlena: I pray to god they didn't find it.
Orpheus: Well, that couldn't have gone any better. I hope Clyde was able to enjoy the festivities.
Xander: [Exhales] Yiamas!
Belle: [Whispers] Hey, Joey. Press my necklace. Just do it!
John: [Exhales] Still no bars.
Abe: Now...you've seen firsthand... the lengths to which these felons will go to to achieve their criminal ends. That is why...it is crucial that now, more than ever, we, as a community, act not out of fear... not to exacerbate what is already a precarious and dangerous situation. We've faced challenges before, and we have risen to them, and we will do it again.
Aiden: I know, hope.
Abe: But we need your cooperation.
Aiden: I know you killed Stefano DiMera.
[Dramatic musical flourish]
Hope: Aah! He's gonna keep digging. He's gonna find out that I killed Stefano.
I could lose you.
Rafe: Hey, take it easy. Know what he's got? Nothing. Nothing!
Hope: Everything I did that night was wrong! I lost it. I snapped! I shot Stefano, and I dragged you into the cover-up.
Rafe: No, you did not drag me into anything. And frankly, we both know that Stefano goaded you into shooting him.
Hope: I'm still guilty of murder. And framing André-- that was just one more crime.
Rafe: Well, you know what? You made the world a better place--stop it, okay? Don't. And André--he got what he deserved. I mean, he was able to wiggle out of it. But don't do this, okay? Do not let Aiden see you like this. Okay? Just don't. We're gonna get out of this. Guaranteed.
Abe: Only then can we bring these violent criminals to justice...and free the hostages.
Go, go, go, go, go!
John: Hey, Theo, stay down! Stay the hell down!
Theo: Dad? Dad!
John: Steve! 12:00!
John: Can you hear me?
