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: [Sighs] Yiamas.
Claire: [Whispering] Hey, Joey. Press my necklace. Just do it!
John: [Sighs] 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.
Abe: Only then can we bring these violent criminals to justice and free the hostages.
Marlena: Abe! Oh, my god, Abe!
John: Down, get down! Down, down, down, down!
Hope: Ciara! Oh, my god! Down, down, stay down!
Steve: Down, stay down!
John: Down! Everybody, down, down, down!
Theo: Dad! Dad!
Steve: Stay tight behind me.
John: Steve, 12:00, 30 degrees!
[Cell phone beeping]
Steve: Get down.
John: Abraham, are you all right? Can you hear me? Cover.
Down, get down.
Rafe: Down! Everybody, stay down! Take cover!
Hope: Stay down. Rafe, the shot came from up there. Stay hidden behind this, okay, honey? Theo! Theo, get back! Get back!
Rafe: The window open, Salem inn, seventh floor.
Hope: Yeah, he's bleeding badly. He's unconscious. All sirens open. We need you here now.
[Cell phone beeps]
Kayla: I need to get to Abe. I can't hide when he's hurt.
Steve: No, Kayla it's not safe.
Kayla: Get out of the way.
Steve: No! Stay low! Stay low!
Ciara: How could this happen?
Rafe: JJ, answer your damn phone!
Hope: Oh, my god, I-- are you gonna be all right? I need to go set up a perimeter, okay?
Ciara: Theo needs me.
Hope: Just stay where you are.
Ciara: Mom, I can't just--
Hope: Damn it, listen to me! Stay where you are, Ciara.
John: No, doc, stay down. Down.
Marlena: No, no, no, no, I'll be okay. Kayla needs my help.
John: Down, down.
Abe: [Groaning and coughing]
Marlena: What can I do? Hang on.
Kayla: Abe, you're fine. We're right here. Hang on, Abe. Hang on, hang on.
Steve: Stay low, Kayla. Stay low, stay low!
Orpheus: Can you believe that dumb hillbilly? He's been bragging all day and all night about what an experienced hunter he is, and he goes and shoots the wrong guy.
Xander: Well, he'd better not let himself get followed coming back here. We still need to get our ransom money for these idiots.
Orpheus: Clyde's not that stupid. We'll get our money, no problem. They'll have to pay. They have no idea where these kids are.
Marlena: Abe, Abe, I've got you. I'm right here.
John: Come on. Come on, where is it?
[Indistinct chatter] Ah, there is it.
[Cell phone beeping] Yes! Yes!
Marlena: We gotta stop the bleeding.
Abe: [Breathing heavily]
John: We've got it, partner.
Theo: You got him?
Kayla: All right, all right, we've got this. We've got this.
Marlena: Theo, it's okay. Let her work.
John: Okay, okay.
Marlena: Help is on the way. The call has been made.
Steve: John, you got 'em? Is that where Claire and Joe are?
John: They're four blocks over, 3rd warehouse, west side.
Steve: All right, let's get Rafe in on this.
John: No, Rafe went to Salem inn where our shooter's holed up.
Steve: All right, then, we're on our own.
John: Wouldn't have it any other way, partner.
Steve: Let's do it. Let's go get those kids.
Theo: Dad, you can't die. Dad, you can't die. You have to fight, okay? Do you hear me?
Kayla: Theo, I need you to give me a little space. Theo, please, a little space. Okay, I need something for this blood. Do you have anything?
Marlena: I have this.
Theo: He's my dad.
[Crying] He's my dad.
Kayla: Abe? Abe, listen to me.
Kayla: I know you're having trouble breathing, okay? Just try to calm down, okay? We have an ambulance on the way. I just need to tilt you just a little bit, okay? Just see if there's a exit wound. It'll just be for a second.
Abe: [Groaning and gasping]
Kayla: Hold on.
Marlena: Hang on.
Kayla: I know, I know. I'm sorry. Okay, okay, okay, that's it. No. All right.
Kayla: Hang in there, Abe.
Both: Come on, we've got you.
Marlena: Help is on the way.
Ciara: Theo, I'm here, okay? Everything's gonna be fine, okay?
Marlena: Okay, easy, easy.
Kayla: Shh, shh, shh, shh.
Marlena: Breathe. Just breathe.
Rafe: Salem P.D.! We're coming in! Hands where we can see 'em!
Clear! Damn it. Randolf, can you hear me? Our shooter's in the wind. Lock this place down. No one gets inside or out, and do a full sweep. Check every room, storage room, the works. You hear me? And tell the manager we need the security tapes ASAP.
JJ: I'll check in the bathroom to see if he left anything.
Rafe: Found the shell casing. Probably from a sniper rifle. We'll dust it for prints and the room. My guess is it's from Weston.
Rafe: Why? Well, Jordan once told me that the guy was a crack shot. Hunted everything. Whether it was in season or not. Just loved killing animals.
JJ: But why shoot Abe carver? I thought all these guys were out for revenge. Weston probably didn't even know the mayor.
Rafe: Yeah, that's a good question. I don't know just yet. Maybe he just wanted to scare people.
JJ: Well... he definitely did that.
Rafe: [Quietly] Yeah.
Hope: Yeah, anyone wearing bulky clothes, overcoats, anything like that. These guys are heavily armed.
[Cell phone beeps] Hey. Baby, how you doing, huh?
Ciara: I'm fine. Just scared.
Hope: I know.
Ciara: After seeing somebody just fall and then all the blood.
Hope: I know. I know, it's horrible.
Ciara: Yeah. I just wish I could have gone in the ambulance with Theo.
Hope: Marlena's with him. Hey, baby. It's going to be okay. I'm gonna have one of the officers take you back to Jennifer's, okay?
Ciara: No, no, mom, I have to go to the hospital. Theo's alone.
Hope: Baby, Marlena is with him.
Ciara: It's not the same. It's Theo. He needs me.
Hope: Okay. You're right. Of course. Okay. But I am still gonna have one of the officers escort you there.
Hope: Okay. Come on.
JJ: All the security footage for the past week's on its way to the station.
Rafe: Oh, great. We'll see what it is when we get it.
JJ: He was probably wearing a disguise though. Wasn't he? Clyde?
Rafe: Yeah, had to be.
JJ: May be hard to recognize him.
Rafe: If he's on those tapes, we'll find him, okay? Hey, hope, how's it going? How's Abe?
Hope: Still alive when they put him in the ambulance. Kay says it's bad. She went with him.
JJ: Randolf said the room search was slow going. I'll go help him.
Rafe: All right. Keep me posted.
JJ: I will.
Rafe: Found this casing by the window. My guess is it belonged to Clyde and he's our shooter. You remember he was a big-time hunter from Missouri. Familiar with a rifle and a scope.
Hope: Uh, yeah, right. Makes sense.
Hope: Plus the other two guys showed up on the live video feed. We were lucky that, um, Clyde only got off one round.
Rafe: Yeah, lucky. Except Abe.
Kayla: I just got off the phone with the or. Dr. Spring is scrubbing in. He's the best thoracic surgeon in the state.
Blanca: Dr. Brady, should you be taking all this on yourself? I mean, your focus has got to be split. Your son...
Kayla: My son is gonna be fine. I trust Steve. I need to be here for Abe. His pulse is way up there and thready. I need that or stat. Call up there and tell 'em that, would you please. They also are gonna need x-rays to find the bullet, and a sonogram. Tell Larry that it's all hands on deck this time, okay? All right, that or will be ready by the time we get there.
Theo: Dad! Dad, you gotta hang on, okay?
Kayla: It's okay, Theo. Please, we'll be back.
Theo: You gotta keep fighting, okay?
Kayla: I'm sorry, Theo.
Marlena: Theo, wait, wait. It's okay. I'm right here. You're not alone.
Theo: I don't know what I'm gonna do. I don't know what I'm gonna do.
Marlena: You know what? Look at me, look at me! You're gonna get through this. We will get through this. Whatever that takes. We will get through it.
Marlena: Theo... maybe you should try to sit down.
Theo: I can't. How long has it been?
Marlena: Theo... operations like this take a long time. Your dad is strong. He's in good condition. The doctors will do everything that they can to help him.
Theo: Why are you even here?
Marlena: What do you mean?
Theo: Why are you here? You're supposed to be worried about Claire. She's your family. She's in trouble.
Marlena: She is in trouble...
[Elevator bell dings] And I am worried about her, and right now everybody is family. Including you.
Ciara: Hey. Hey, how's it going?
Theo: He's in the operating room with Kayla.
Ciara: That's good, right? It means that he made it to the hospital, now the surgeon's doing her thing, and pretty soon he'll be awake telling you he's just fine.
Theo: Can you promise me that?
Theo: Right. I didn't think so.
Kayla: I thought that was the problem. Okay. Keep me informed. Thank you.
Blanca: Was that the or?
Kayla: Yeah. Uh, it's bad. Apparently the bullet exploded on impact and bits and pieces went everywhere. I thought that's what the x-ray showed, but I couldn't be sure, and, I mean, if one of those fragments are imbedded in his heart...
[Quietly] Oh, dear, god.
Blanca: Any word on your son?
Kayla: No... but we're gonna find him.
John: All right... according to the GPS, put Claire and Joey right in that warehouse.
Steve: Man, it's all I can do to keep from busting down that door, going in there guns blazing.
John: Can't do that, partner.
Steve: I know. Not with the kids in there.
John: All right... let's work on a game plan.
Orpheus: The more I think about it, shooting that fatuous mayor might have been the best thing that could have happened.
Orpheus: Well, the whole town is scared to death. They're in a panic. They don't know who's gonna be next. Could be them, could be somebody they love. They'll be quicker to come up with the ransom. Course, we're not gonna tell Clyde that.
Rafe: Wait, stop it right there. Stop. Yeah... that's Clyde.
Aiden: Ah, what do we have?
Rafe: Hotel security footage. Clyde Weston checking in.
Aiden: In yet another disguise. Where does he get all that stuff?
Rafe: Well, who knows where he gets the stuff? The question I have is why did he shoot someone that he barely even knew.
JJ: Man, we just got intel. Mayor carver wasn't the target.
Aiden: Who was?
JJ: You, Mr. Jennings. The shot was meant for you.
[Soft dramatic music]
Hope: Claire's gotta be all right.
Marlena: [Exasperated sigh] Yes, yes... yes, I'm hoping so too. Thank you for--thank you.
Theo: I left a message for Brandon. At least I think so. My call got dropped.
Ciara: Did you reach Lani?
Theo: Yeah, I left her one too.
Marlena: [Emotionally] Sit with Ciara, please.
Ciara: I'm sorry for what I said before. I... the last thing I wanna do is make you upset.
Theo: It's cool. You just were trying to be nice. You know, since my mom died, it's just been me and my dad. For a long time, you know?
Ciara: And he's strong. Very strong.
Theo: Yeah, but, I mean, he's still human like your dad was. They always try to teach us when we're kids that you're not supposed to be afraid and that the world's all good and that there's no worries... but, I mean, you and I both know better than that, right?
Ciara: Theo, I, um... you need to know something, okay? No matter what happens, you'll always have me.
Theo: That means a lot. Thanks.
Aiden: Wait, I was the target?
JJ: I just took a call from some guy who said that he recorded the press conference. When he played it back in slow motion, he said that he could see a laser light target you and hold. Then mayor carver stepped in front of you. Taking the bullet instead.
Rafe: I need to see that footage.
JJ: Forensics is pulling it now.
Hope: Again this confirms that Clyde was the shooter.
Aiden: Right, because I'm the one who turned on him, got him sent to Florida on that murder charge.
[Cell phone ringing]
Rafe: So Marlena was right.
[Cell phone beeps] This is all personal.
Aiden: Attorney general. Sorry.
JJ: I have gotta go file my report on that call.
Rafe: I'm gonna go check that footage.
Xander: As soon as we get that ransom money, I'm going to take care of Theresa and Nicole and then I am out of here.
Orpheus: Yeah, that's fine, but we have to be patient. Until Clyde gets back, we're not gonna make our play for the ransom, and until then, we have to take care of these hostages. No hostages, no money.
Xander: Once we get the money, I couldn't care less what happens to them. Far as I'm concerned, they're just a--
Orpheus: What's wrong?
Xander: What the hell is this, huh?
Claire: It's just my necklace. I dropped it and he picked it up when his chair fell over.
Xander: Well, now. Aren't you the gentleman? This belongs to the little twit.
Orpheus: That little twit had a GPS on her the whole time.
John: All right, so I will create the diversion. I'll bring 'em around this side over here, your point of access is gonna be the south end of the building.
Steve: Got it. If I hear gunfire, I'm not waiting. What's up?
John: Lost the signal.
Steve: Is it your battery?
John: They found the GPS.
Steve: Maybe it just stopped working.
John: No other explanation. They found--
JJ: It's not every day you could say someone saved your life. Right? Even if it was unintentional.
Aiden: As soon as Abe gets better, I'm gonna thank him in person, yeah.
[Cell phone beeps]
JJ: My phone's working again.
JJ: Oh, no.
Aiden: What's up?
JJ: Gunshots in the alley by the docks.
Aiden: Again? I tell you, if that's a Kiriakis, I'm gonna charge that whole family.
[Soft dramatic music]
Hope: So Abe's still in surgery?
Ciara: Yeah, Kayla said that lung operations are really tricky. Have you heard anything on Claire and Joey?
Hope: No, honey.
[Sighs] Not yet. Believe me, as soon as I have any news I'll give you a call. Please, tell Theo we're all pulling for his dad.
Ciara: I will. I love you, mom.
Hope: I love you too, baby.
[Cell phone beeps]
Rafe: Abe's still in surgery, huh? That can't be good.
Hope: No. Did you, uh... check the video?
Rafe: Yeah, I did.
Rafe: I sure have. Sure enough, that bullet was meant for Aiden. Talk about bad timing. But I did notice something else on that tape, though.
Rafe: Well, just before the shot, Aiden crossed over to you and said something to you that made you really upset. What was that?
Hope: I don't know. I don't remember.
[Scoffs] Rafe, it all went so fast.
Rafe: Uh, but your face, it looked...
[Sighs] Fed up?
[Scoffs] Probably because Aiden was, you know, just being Aiden.
Rafe: Uh-huh. Okay, well, whatever he said to you obviously made you really--
Hope: Damn it, Rafe. Just drop it!
[Quietly] I'm sorry. I just can't think about Aiden right now.
Hope: Yeah, I just can't.
Steve: Okay... I'm gonna rush the door, you cover me.
John: No, that's suicide, man! That's suicide.
Steve: Listen, man, we've gotta hit fast. We've gotta hit fast or they're gonna hurt those kids.
John: We gotta eliminate the threat first.
Claire: Maybe it's the cops.
Joey: [Muffled chatter]
Xander: All right, kiddies, time to go. We are leaving and so are you. Traveling light this time. Maybe you'll get luck and see us kill a few guys on the way out.
Joey: [Muffled] Claire, go. Go, Claire, go!
Xander: What the hell?
Claire: No, wait, I'm not gonna leave you!
[Soft dramatic music]
Marlena: Any word from your brothers and sisters?
Ciara: Is there any word from Claire or Joey?
Marlena: [Sighs] No. No, not yet, but I'm sure we're gonna hear something really, really, really soon.
Theo: How's my dad? Is he good? He's gonna be good, right?
Kayla: He's out of surgery and he's in recovery.
Theo: Thank you. Thank you.
Kayla: Theo, um... while this is all good news, I want you to know that your father's injuries are... they're severe. Apparently when the bullet hit it exploded, and fragments went everywhere.
Theo: Yeah, which is why he lost so much blood.
Kayla: One of the reasons, yes. The surgeons did their best to take out everything that they found, but they're not sure...
Theo: [Exhales sharply]
Kayla: And, well, there could be some fragments embedded in the wall of the heart. We won't know until the swelling recedes, but in the meantime, we have called in a specialist from Chicago.
Theo: [Scoffs] So he could still die?
[Both breathing heavily]
Steve: You hear what I hear? There's only one gun now.
John: Did you get lucky, Sundance?
Steve: Maybe. Or maybe the other gun's making an end run around us.
John: Or they're clearing the kids out.
[Footsteps approaching rapidly]
John: [Grunts] Baby!
John: Baby girl.
Steve: Hey, where's Joe? Is he behind you?
Claire: I don't know. I don't know, I tried. I tried really hard, but there was a big foreign guy who was punching him and punching him. I wanted him to come, but I couldn't.
Steve: I'm going in.
Steve: I'm going in!
Steve: Keep you're head down. Down.
John: They got us cut off. We gotta go back.
Steve: Like hell. I can't go back. Joe's still in there.
John: We'll come back for him! We need some help. Fall back now!
Steve: I gotta get to my boy.
John: You're no good to him dead, are you? Get her outta here, now.
Steve: On three. One, two, three. Run! Run!
Rafe: Hope, am I paranoid? Am I? Am I reading too much into this Aiden thing?
Hope: [Sighs] Maybe. But with good reason.
Rafe: I just... I hate seeing you stressed out like this. Maybe you do need to take some down time.
Hope: No, are you kidding?
Rafe: Maybe... okay. That's a no.
[Cell phone beeps]
[Cell phone beeps]
[Groans] Lieutenant needs to see me.
Rafe: Great. Are you gonna be okay?
Hope: Yeah, I'm good. Go. I'm fine.
Both: [Quietly] Okay.
[Soft dramatic music]
Hope: You were Clyde's target. You may be again. You should probably leave town. At least for a little while. Maybe go to Portland. See chase.
Aiden: [Chuckles softly] Well, thank you for the concern, but I think it's best I stick around Salem. At least until this mess is cleared up.
Hope: Your call.
Aiden: Hey. Still wanna talk to you about what I told you right before the shooting. The fact that you killed Stefano DiMera.
Hope: He's gonna keep digging. He's gonna find out that I killed Stefano.
[Cell phone beeps]
[Cell phone beeps]
Orpheus: Don't fight it, doc. Consider this a date with destiny. Now who is this lovely creature.
Marlena: I have no idea. I saw her walking alone and asked if she wanted company.
Orpheus: Oh, really? Well, you are a model citizen.
Marlena: My body guard is right behind us.
Orpheus: Oh. I don't see anyone.
Marlena: Don't you touch her!
Orpheus: Relax, kid. I don't bite.
Marlena: [Exhales sharply] Look, she's got nothing to do with the vendetta you feel against my family, so just let her go and keep me.
Orpheus: Ah, your protective instinct is impressive, Marlena. Like, a lioness with her cub. Or in this case, grand-cub. You don't think I did my homework, hmm? All those years in prison, I studied all the inhabitants of Salem. Including your granddaughter, Claire. It's a lovely name for a lovely girl.
Marlena: You stay away from her.
Orpheus: You're in no position to bark orders, Marlena. Come to think of it... forcing you to watch your precious granddaughter shot and killed... might be the best revenge of all.
[Exhales sharply] This phone never seems to work here.
Kayla: Yeah, I can't get reception either. I've been trying to call Steve. Do you think that he and john are together?
Marlena: Maybe they're with the kids by now. May-- maybe they're with the police, trying to id the shooter.
Kayla: This has been the longest day from hell.
Marlena: I keep picturing Claire's face. She was just so frightened.
Kayla: And Joey, although he always tries to be so stoic.
Marlena: This never seems to end, does it?
Kayla: I can tell you one thing. I'm not gonna give up.
Marlena: Damn right.
[Soft dramatic music]
Abe: Judge McNair wouldn't listen to the truth about his son and what he did, but that doesn't mean that what Ciara did wasn't wrong. She's impulsive and she doesn't think about the consequences.
Theo: Yeah, you're right. She is impulsive... and she's angry... and she's still hurt from what chase did to her and her dad dying. Sometimes when you're mad and hurt, you do things that you shouldn't do. Like when I lied to you when I was mad.
Abe: You lied to me?
Theo: Yeah. I said I would have helped Ciara spray paint the car, but I wouldn't have. I only said that to make you listen.
Abe: I was listening.
Theo: Dad, you weren't. You were talking. About Ciara. You didn't even think about how she was keeping me in the dark. 'Cause if she had told me what she was gonna do, I would have tried and talk her out of it.
Abe: Oh, is that so?
Theo: Dad, listen. Ciara's not a bad influence on me. I'm a good influence on her. If mom was here, she would tell you to stop being so damn "law and order."
Abe: It's happening right in front of my own eyes.
Abe: Boy is gone. I'm looking at a young man.
Theo: That's what I'm trying to tell you, dad.
Abe: Okay. Okay. But... you know, don't you? I just want you to be happy.
Theo: I am happy... with Ciara.
Hope: Whatever you think--
Aiden: It's not what I think. It's what I know.
Claire: Hey, gram?
Hope: Oh, my god. Claire, oh, my god!
[Sighs] Thank god, baby, you're all right.
Hope: Oh, my god, let me see you. Where's Joey?
Hope: Isn't Joey with you?
Claire: Gram, it's so awful.
Claire: I don't know.
Steve: Turn around! Oh... I told you we shouldn't have waited. We should have come in here shooting.
John: Nah, not with Joey in here, kid.
JJ: Yeah, that could have gone south real fast.
Steve: [Sighs] They still go Joe.
[Indistinct chatter over radio]
I'm gonna kill them. I'm gonna kill every last one of 'em.
