Gabi: Oh, I'm sorry.
Chad: Sorry, sorry.
Gabi: I'm sorry.
Chad: No, it's okay.
Gabi: Gosh, I can't believe-- um, I'm sorry I feel asleep.
Chad: No, are you kidding me? We're all exhausted.
Gabi: Yeah. Yeah, I'm just--
Gabi: Listen, thank you. I'm--I'm really grateful that you let us stay here. Thank you so much.
Chad: Uh, yeah, yeah. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Steve: Hey. You okay?
Kayla: Well, I would be if I was allowed to do my job.
Steve: Tell me what's going on.
Kayla: I didn't realize it would be like this. I was just down in admitting. You wouldn't believe how many injured people are out there trying to get in, and our administrator, Seth burns, is refusing to let us do anything about it.
Steve: What do you mean he's refusing?
Kayla: Just that! The Salem pd has locked down the entire hospital, and everything is completely upside down. My job is to help as many patients as I can, especially at a time like this.
Seth: And I have a duty to protect this institution and the people inside of it.
Kayla: By denying them access to medical care? Really, that's your idea of protecting them?
Seth: I don't need you to tell me how to run my hospital, Dr. Brady. No one enters or leaves until the siege is over, understood?
John: You don't want to do this, Orpheus.
Orpheus: Won't be the last time you say that before we're through, I'll wager.
John: Your fight's not with the people of Salem. It's with me.
Orpheus: Just a few seconds ago, you were brimming with confidence. It's all over. I should turn myself in. Isn't it funny how quickly fortunes can change?
John: Ah, come on, man. We used to be partners. We worked so well together. Can't we just talk this out? We got to come up with some kind of an agreement.
Orpheus: Oh, I'm afraid that ship has sailed. Remember, john, I have eyes on the pub. If anybody tries to run, walk, or crawl out of there, I won't hesitate to bring the building down on all of you.
John: What the hell do you want?
Orpheus: I'll be in touch.
John: Get the bomb squad here. Get everybody ready to evacuate.
Marlena: Uh, I think Caroline's upstairs.
Jennifer: Caroline, I'll get her.
Marlena: Get ready to evacuate? We have to evacuate now--
John: We can't, doc. Anybody leaves the pub, he's gonna bring this building down on top of us. That's the way this bomb's rigged.
Marlena: Well, there must be some way to--
John: What, to reason with him? I just tried.
Marlena: Try harder.
John: You're right. This has gone on long enough. It's time to give him what he wants.
Eduardo: Oh, hey.
Rafe: I found you.
Rafe: I got your voice mail. Cops said you were here.
Rafe: Are you okay?
Eduardo: Yeah, yeah. I'm fine. I'm fine. But your brother--your brother got banged up pretty bad in that explosion at club TBD.
Rafe: How bad is it?
Eduardo: No, he's--he's gonna be okay.
Rafe: Good. Good. Uh, glad to hear it.
Eduardo: Are you?
Rafe: I didn't say I was happy with him. He could have got us all killed. I mean, he sent some guy to come after me, and the guy ends up going after Gabi?
Rafe: No, I mean, what the hell is the guy thinking?
Eduardo: Well, he-- he wasn't thinking. He wasn't thinking. That's obvious. But he--he regrets it. I know he regrets it.
Eduardo: I was with him just now, talking to him. I felt close to him for the first time in--in memory, man. It's like he was, uh-- he was open with me, you know? We were talking honestly. We were talking without anger.
Rafe: Without anger?
Eduardo: Yeah, kind of a surprise.
Rafe: The guy tried to keep you away from your family in a way that was not only deceptive but was dangerous. I mean, this could have ended up way worse. How was there not anger?
Eduardo: Well, I-- like I told him, man, you know, I was a terrible father, and I'm in no position to judge, right? I mean, you know that better than anybody. You know, if he's--if he's... [Sighs] Acting selfishly, he learned it from me.
Rafe: But selfish-- selfish is one thing, but what he did--
Eduardo: I know. I know. If it's any comfort, he never intended to put your sister in harm's way.
Rafe: That's his argument? Really?
Eduardo: It's not an argument, just a fact.
Rafe: Well, the fact is, is that Dario is selfish. The only person he ever thinks about is himself.
Eduardo: He has a--a really troubled heart, Rafe. He--he has a-- he has a troubled heart.
Eduardo: It can happen when you grow up without a father in your life.
Rafe: Okay, so how is that story any different than mine or Gabi's, for that matter?
Eduardo: Well, you're different people. The fact that the two of you found a way to forgive me, I'm--I'm very grateful for that, as you know. So your--your brother hasn't been able to. But I'm hoping that the two of you can find a way to forgive him like I have, because we've all made mistakes, Rafe. We've all done things we're not proud of.
Marlena: Look, I-I know you feel like you have no choice here--
John: We don't have any choice, doc.
Marlena: You can't turn yourself over to him; he's--
John: It's just a risk I have to take. If we're gonna save some lives, we have to neutralize the enemy, simple as that.
Marlena: What, by risking your own life?
Hope: Finally got through to the bomb squad. They're stretched way too thin.
John: Damn. He planned this out so perfectly.
[Cell phone rings]
John: Yeah, where are you?
Orpheus: Look over at the door.
John: All right. Orpheus, if you--if you let these people go, I'm all yours.
Orpheus: Well, that's quite a heroic proposition, john. Are you sure you've thought this thing through?
John: I'm sure that I'm begging you not to hurt these people.
Orpheus: So you're willing to give your life to save theirs?
John: That's a fact, yes.
Orpheus: I was hoping you'd say that.
Gabi: [Laughs] You're here. Look who's here. Oh, my gosh.
JJ: I shouldn't be here, I know, but I wanted to check on you and Ari.
Gabi: Hey, I missed you so much.
JJ: I missed you too.
Gabi: How are you?
Chad: How's everything going out there?
JJ: It's chaos, getting worse by the minute. Listen to me, I was thinking that I can take you and Ari back to my mom's house along with my mom and Doug and Julie.
Gabi: Julie? No, no, I'm--I'm not gonna see Julie. I can't see Julie right now.
JJ: Gab--Gabi, I know that you're thinking that she's-- she's not nice to you.
Gabi: No, it's more than not nice. A person doesn't even talk to you or even look in your direction?
JJ: Gabi, I-I think you're imagining that. I think she's really trying now.
Gabi: Trying to what?
JJ: To like you.
Gabi: Okay, I'm sorry, I don't need somebody to try and like me.
JJ: Okay, listen, that-- that came out wrong. What I meant was, is that she is realizing that you are a good person, and she's crazy for Ari.
Gabi: I don't--I don't think that she's realizing anything, and I think she thinks that she's stuck with me because she has to see me sometimes at, you know, events because I'm with you, but no, I'm sorry, I'm not gonna stay at your mom's. I-I'd rather stay here.
Chad: Yeah, I mean, there's no--there's no point in moving Ari. I mean, she's--she seems to be having a good time.
Gabi: And Lucas is here, so her grandpa's here. That makes it easy on me.
JJ: Okay. Okay, yeah, stay here. Whatever's best for you and Ari.
Gabi: Think I'm gonna go move her to the guest room, okay? Hey, psst. You're gonna go to the guest room. Let's go. Ready?
Gabi: [Chuckles] Bye-bye.
JJ: How's Thomas doing?
Chad: Great. He, um--you know, he slept through everything, mostly.
JJ: Lucky kid.
JJ: You know, I wish more than anything that my sister was able to see him grow up. She loved him so much.
Chad: Yeah, she did.
JJ: Anyway, um, I want to thank you for helping Gabi out.
Chad: No, don't even mention it, man. It's really--it's not a problem.
JJ: No, no, you've done more than enough.
Chad: Yeah, just--you know, just so you know that, you know, Gabi and Ari, they're--they're safe here.
[Cell phone buzzing]
JJ: Deveraux. On my way.
Chad: What--hey, whoa, whoa. Hey, wait. What's going on?
JJ: Tell Gabi I had to go.
Chad: Wait, no. What's going on?
JJ: Orpheus planted a bomb in the Brady pub. My mom's inside.
John: Instruct me how to proceed. Ball's in your court.
Orpheus: Tell the bitch to put the phone down, and nobody moves.
John: Lose the phone, hope.
Orpheus: Now, it's really quite simple, john. I come in and take you. Then and only then will I agree to let everyone else go.
John: All right. All right, just--
Orpheus: The deal is nonnegotiable.
John: Yeah, just a moment.
Orpheus: You try to get clever, and I blow this place and everyone in it to hell.
Marlena: Talk to me.
John: He won't let everyone go until I'm with him.
Marlena: So we just give in to his demands?
John: I'll find a way to stop him.
Marlena: What if you don't? John... he separated us all those years ago, and we found our way back together against all odds, but--
John: We will again. This is just a means to an end. I will find my way back to you.
Orpheus: I've waited long enough, john.
Orpheus: Time for you to come with me.
John: I'm not going anywhere until you disarm the explosive.
Orpheus: All right. First give me the clip to your piece. Nice and easy. And you... hope, is it? I'll take yours as well. Thank you. All right.
Voilą. Now... tie him up. Do it.
John: It's okay.
Orpheus: Turn around, john. You're gonna back up nice and easy, slowly. Easy does it. Easy does it.
Marlena: [Exhales sharply]
Hope: John's a fighter. He's gonna be fine.
[Soft dramatic music]
Eduardo: You need to make a call?
Rafe: Hmm? No, no, it's-- I, uh--I thought better of it.
Rafe: Yeah, I'm pretty sure she doesn't want to hear from me right now, so...
Eduardo: Hmm. You two hit a rough patch or something?
Rafe: [Chuckles] Yeah, something like that. We decided to take a break.
Eduardo: You okay?
Rafe: I forgot what it's like to feel like this.
Eduardo: I'm guessing she's the one wanted to break it off?
Rafe: Yeah, yeah.
Eduardo: You want to-- want to talk about it?
Rafe: Eh, it's complicated. But then again, I guess love always is. But it's not over.
Jennifer: Someone named Lazlo--Lazlo.
Hope: Yes, that's right.
Marlena: Okay, how'd he get in?
Hope: There's a bomb strapped to Jennifer Horton. What's the eta on the bomb squad? My God, we don't have that kind of time. Keep checking on them.
Hope: What did Jennifer say?
Marlena: She said that, uh, Orpheus hired some thug named Lazlo. He climbed up the fire escape, got into the bedroom, and he tied the bomb to her.
Hope: He tricked john into thinking that he could trade his life for ours.
Marlena: Well, really, seriously? I mean, who would believe a man like that?
Hope: We didn't have a choice.
Marlena: [Sighs] Okay. What do we know about the bomb squad?
Hope: They don't have the personnel right now.
Hope: They're doing about a million other things.
Marlena: Wait a minute. What?
Hope: Go. You should go.
Marlena: No, no, no, no, I'm not leaving--
Hope: Get out of here.
Marlena: I'm not leaving Jennifer.
Hope: Marlena, we'll be fine. I'm staying. Go. You just take care of everyone else.
Marlena: Oh, my God. Hope, please.
Hope: Go. Just go.
Marlena: Okay. I'll be at the hospital. Jenn.
Jennifer: Did you call them? Did--did you call the bomb squad?
Hope: I did.
Hope: They're gonna be here soon.
Jennifer: Are you just telling me that because that's what I want to hear?
Hope: No. Cuz... just stay calm, okay?
Hope: It's gonna be okay.
Jennifer: I think that you need to go. You need to go be with everybody.
Hope: No way. Look at me. I'm not leaving you.
Jennifer: Okay, then you need to tell me the truth. The bomb squad's not coming, are they?
Hope: They are. They're coming. As soon as they can, they're gonna be here.
Jennifer: And if it isn't soon enough, who's gonna disarm this thing?
Hope: I am.
Jennifer: No, no. Hope--
Hope: Jennifer, I will find a way. I will...find a way.
Steve: Kayla, I just overheard a cop say one of the fugitives took john hostage. It's got to be Orpheus. He's the only one left.
[Cell phone rings]
Gabi: Hey, uh, Chad just told me why you had to run out.
JJ: Some lunatic rigged the pub with explosives, and now a bunch of people are trapped inside, including my mom.
Gabi: Please, please, JJ, be careful. Just--I don't know what I would do if anything happened to you, so please.
JJ: Nothing will. I promise. Drop the gun right now!
John: Son of a--
Orpheus: Move it!
Gabi: JJ? JJ?
JJ: [Breathing heavily]
Steve: I know what happened. John gave himself up to save everyone else. Now, I've got to track them down and find out where that maniac took my partner.
Steve: Listen, I know what you're gonna say.
Kayla: You have to go help john.
Steve: That's right.
Kayla: There is no other way.
Steve: That's right, baby. I'm gonna find john. I'm gonna stop Orpheus.
Kayla: I know you will. But we got to find you a way out of this hospital first.
Orpheus: Are you gonna complain about the spotty cell phone service again? I had no idea you were so high maintenance.
John: Well, despite the technical difficulties... the $20 million has just gone through, uploaded to your Swiss bank account.
Orpheus: Oh? Well, let's see. We're all just a click away from salvation these days, aren't we? Ah, there it is. Nicely done.
John: Now that you got your money, why don't you pack it up and hightail it out of Salem before someone else gets hurt?
Orpheus: You'd like that, wouldn't you?
John: That was the deal.
Orpheus: You're a caring man, john. I can see that. Compassionate, empathetic.
John: That's a fact, yeah.
Orpheus: When I shot that cop, it genuinely upset you.
John: Damn it, just take the money and go.
Orpheus: Is that your fantasy? That I slither out of town, give everybody a break?
John: Something like that.
Orpheus: And not kill you? Come on, john. You've known from the beginning that that's what this is all about.
John: Then do it. Don't just talk about it. Do it, but first... I want you to make me a promise that you will leave and not hurt anybody else.
Orpheus: What do you want me to do, pinkie swear? Well... it's a little late for that.
John: What are you talking about?
Orpheus: You remember the bomb I deactivated at the pub? Turns out--now, don't judge me-- not the only one I planted.
[Cell phone rings]
Hope: I really need your help.
Gabi: Can't be happening. This cannot be happening.
Chad: Okay, Gabi, stop. Gabi, tell me what happened. Stop.
Gabi: This can't be real. This is not real.
Chad: Stop. Slow down. Tell me what happened.
Gabi: I have to go find him. Okay.
Chad: You need to slow down and tell me what happened.
Gabi: No, listen to me. I was--okay, okay. I was on the phone with JJ, and then we were talking, and all of a sudden, the phone hit the ground, and nothing--I didn't hear anything.
Chad: Okay, and then what?
Gabi: Then there was a shot, and then--
Chad: What do you mean, a shot--like a gunshot?
Gabi: It sounded like a shot, but I don't know what it was, okay? Nobody got back on the phone.
Chad: Stop, stop. You don't know if it was a gunshot or not. You don't know if it was a gunshot, okay? Maybe he dropped the phone when he was chasing a suspect.
Gabi: Maybe it was a shot, so maybe he's hurt, and I need to go. Can you please watch Arianna?
Chad: No, listen, then you stay here, and I'll go.
Gabi: No, okay? No, no, I need to go. It has to be me.
Chad: Okay, fine, you know what? Hey, we're both gonna go. We're both gonna go.
Gabi: Who's gonna watch Arianna?
Chad: Lucas is gonna watch Arianna. You and I are gonna go because it's not safe for you to be out there alone, okay?
Gabi: All right, okay.
Gabi: Who are you calling?
Chad: Salem pd. I'm gonna let them know that an officer might be down. Let's go.
Marlena: Please let me know if you have any word at all about--about john or Orpheus. Yeah, thanks, roman. [Gasps] Oh, my God. Okay, okay, okay, I got it. Stay calm. You're fine. Hang on. Hang on. Come on. I know. I know it hurts. Look at me. Look at me. Look at my face. I've got you. I've got you. We'll get through this. We're gonna be fine. Hang on.
Rafe: Bastard strapped a bomb to Jennifer?
Hope: And we need to defuse it. Bomb squad's not gonna get here in time.
Rafe: Okay, do you remember what happened last time we tried to defuse it?
Hope: I know. It didn't end well.
Rafe: Hope, I am not the one to call when you want to defuse a bomb.
Hope: You're the best shot we've got, Rafe.
Rafe: Hope, I am telling you I am not the one, but I do know someone who is. I'm gonna call you right back.
Kayla: Every single exit's gonna have a guard.
Steve: Come on, there's got to be a way out of here. What about, like, the kitchen or the morgue or something?
Kayla: That one there. That wouldn't be monitored.
Steve: You sure about that?
Kayla: Almost 100%.
Steve: I'll take those odds.
Kayla: Okay, listen, when you work your way out, you're gonna have to find the fire escape, okay?
Steve: I'm gonna be fine, sweetness.
Kayla: Go get him.
Steve: I will.
John: Come on, man. We had a deal. We had a deal, and I held up my end.
Orpheus: Oh, is this the part where you tell me how much pride you take in being a man of your word?
John: Defuse that damn bomb now.
Orpheus: John, are you getting this? You're in no position to give me orders, partner.
John: What is your deal? How many innocent people have to die?
Orpheus: Well, I hadn't thought of an exact number, but to get back to your original request, the answer is no. I'm not disarming anything. My only regret is that I couldn't get roman lured into that pub, but at this point, I really can't be greedy, can I?
John: Oh, come on, man. You don't want to do this.
Orpheus: You're starting to repeat yourself.
John: $20 million. $20 million, and you could slip out of town here, start a whole new life.
Orpheus: Yeah, I agree with you there. That kind of money could underwrite a whole new existence. But for me, real currency, if you will, is the taste of retribution, to subject you and everyone who caused me pain to as much hurt as I felt.
John: That's-- well, if that's the case, then you're never gonna be satisfied, man.
Orpheus: For all your compassion and your empathy, you still don't have a clue. You have no idea what it was like to be left for dead on that island. Death itself would be easier to endure than what I've had to go through. Your heart bleeding for me? No, I didn't think so. Losing my wife at your hands was bad enough. For my children, my son and my daughter, the only links I had to Rebecca-- for them to reject me is unbearable.
John: I understand that.
Orpheus: Do you? Do you, john? Can you imagine your own flesh and blood turning their backs on you, hmm? And even when I had a chance to reconcile with them, they would have nothing to do with me, their father. Why? Why, john? Because you and those hypocritical slags at the ISA painted me as some kind of irredeemable monster, evil.
John: Because that is what you have become. So why don't you stop playing the victim here? Take responsibility for your own destiny. The fact is, your kids are better off without you.
Orpheus: As yours will be without you. Get down. Get down on your knees. Now.
Tell me, john black... are you prepared to die?
Eduardo: Come again, there?
Rafe: Orpheus strapped a bomb to Jennifer Horton. I need you to help me disarm it.
Eduardo: Oh, dear God.
Eduardo: Well, uh, you know, uh, I can try, but-- where are they? Let's--let's get over there.
Rafe: Listen--no, no, no. There's no time to go there. I need to do this over the phone.
Eduardo: Oh, no. Okay.
Rafe: Hey, hope.
Hope: What do you got for me?
Rafe: I got my father here.
Eduardo: Hey, hope.
Rafe: And, uh, he's gonna help you, so I'm just gonna-- I'm gonna pass the phone over to him, okay?
Eduardo: Yeah, so Rafe, uh-- Rafe tells me you got a bit of a situation over there, so, uh, you know, maybe if you put the phone next to the device and show it to me, then maybe I could get a sense of, uh, what it is we're dealing with.
Eduardo: All right, that looks like a pretty straightforward array. Okay, uh, hope, the first thing I need you to do is to detach the--
JJ: It's bad, isn't it?
Marlena: I need you to conserve your strength. Do that, okay? Just do it. Damn! I've got you.
JJ: It's bad, isn't it?
Marlena: It's--it's okay. We're gonna be okay.
Gabi: JJ! Oh, my God. Are you okay, baby?
JJ: I'm so sorry.
Gabi: Oh, my God, everything's okay. I'm here. No, no, no, shh, shh. No, no, no, don't be sorry. No, stop. No, no, stop, shh.
Marlena: Okay, put pressure right here, firm pressure right there. I can't get an answer at the hospital.
Chad: It's-- it's the lockdown.
Gabi: I'm right here, babe. Just stay with us, okay?
Marlena: I need an ambulance, and I need it now!
Chad: On it.
Marlena: Pressure, heavy pressure. JJ, keep breathing. Deep breath. We've got this. We've got this, honey. We've got it. Deep breath. Come on, that's it.
Rafe: What happened?
Eduardo: The signal died.
Hope: Oh, thank God. We don't have time for any more interruptions.
Eduardo: So how's, uh-- how's Jenn doing?
Hope: Bravest woman I know.
Eduardo: Let's put the phone back on the bomb.
Hope: All right. I'm gonna put it down. I'll need two hands. Okay. There you go.
Eduardo: Now, that--that red wire, you see that?
Hope: Yeah. Yes, I see it.
Eduardo: Okay, I need you to detach the red wire. Just take a deep breath. Firm, steady hand and just-- just pull that--pull that wire.
Hope: So far, so good. Okay.
Eduardo: Okay, you're doing great, doing great. A few more wires and we're in business, all good.
Hope: Oh, no. No, no, not now. Come on. Come back.
Eduardo: You still with me, hope?
Hope: Oh, thank God. Yes, we're good. Okay, go. Go.
Eduardo: Okay, we're good. We're good. Now, there's a-- there's a blue wire. You see that?
Hope: Yes, I-- a blue--the blue wire. I got it.
Eduardo: Pull that blue wire. No, wait, hope. No, don't-- not the blue wire. That's too--that's too obvious. There's a--the yellow wire, you want to pull the yellow wire next.
Hope: Are you sure?
Rafe: You need to be sure about this.
Eduardo: I-I'm sure. I'm sure. The yellow wire, pull it.
Hope: Okay. Okay, Jenn.
Hope: Okay. Okay, okay. Hey. What's next?
Eduardo: Uh, next-- yeah, next is the green wire. You--ne--next pull the green wire.
Jennifer: [Breathes heavily]
Hope: [Mouthing words] Ready? One... two... three.
Hope: Oh, it worked!
Eduardo: Oh, yeah.
Hope: We did it.
[Soft dramatic music]
[Cell phone ringing]
Rafe: How's Jenn doing?
Hope: A lot better than she was a minute ago.
Rafe: Heh. Yeah. How about you?
Hope: [Chuckles] I am so good right now. Thinking about applying to the bomb squad, actually.
Rafe: Well, they'd be lucky to have you.
Hope: Your father deserves all the credit. Please thank him again for me.
Rafe: Already taken care of.
Hope: Listen, Rafe--
Rafe: I love you. I love you. I just-- the thought of losing you...
Hope: I love you too. Hey, I got to go. Lot of cleaning up, uh, to do around here.
Rafe: Yeah, yeah, yeah, um... well, we'll talk later.
Hope: We'll talk soon. Bye.
Jennifer: You didn't leave me.
Hope: Never. I will never leave you. [Chuckles] We did it.
Marlena: Did you see who might have done it? Did you hear anything, a voice, anything?
Gabi: No. Oh, my God. No, I couldn't make out what they were saying, and then I heard a really loud bang or something.
Marlena: Okay. Okay.
Chad: There's no one around. It's like a-- it's like a ghost town.
Marlena: What about the car you came in?
Chad: Out of gas. That's why we ran here.
Marlena: Okay, okay.
Gabi: Oh, my God, baby. I'm right here, JJ.
Marlena: Okay, listen, help is on the way. We're gonna get you help. I need you to stay calm for me. Look at my face. Don't look at that.
Gabi: Just look at us.
Marlena: Look at my face.
Gabi: You're gonna be okay, baby.
Marlena: You're gonna be fine--keep the compression.
Gabi: It's okay. It's okay.
John: Oh, at least have the courage to face me when you do this.
Orpheus: Oh, is that what this is about, john, courage? Or are you just trying to buy yourself some more time? You can't stop this, john.
Steve: But I can. Drop the gun. Drop it now.
