Hope: Little late to be bringing me upstairs isn't it? What's going on, officer?
Detective...[Nervous laugh]. Okay, none of us blame you for killing Stefano DiMera. And we've heard the rumors. The department would've taken a hell of a hit if you hadn't confessed. Favors are due. So... have a good night.
Gabi: You cheated on me?
JJ: Gabi, I--I can't tell you how sorry I am.
Gabi: You... why...you--oh, my God!
JJ: Wait, please don't. Gabi! I--I... I--I love you, and what I did was so stupid and so wrong, I just couldn't take it anymore. It was eating me alive. I had to tell you. I had to be honest. Please. At least let me try to explain.
[Haunting piano music]
Victor: Theresa, I know you're here. Why the hell don't you... Theresa. Good God. Theresa! Theresa! Hey! Wake up!
Hope: Wow. I'm always happy to get out of that cell. But our own private room? That kiss? How? What's going on? Did you have all of this arranged?
Rafe: No, I did not have this arranged. Everyone knows how big the stakes are tomorrow.
Hope: Where I go down for the count.
Rafe: Don't don't. Do not say that.
Hope: Or possibly André reneges on our deal, and it gets even nastier.
Rafe: Well why would André--
Hope: Why wouldn't he? Why wouldn't he? Rafe, he would love to see you and roman go down with me.
Rafe: Babe, babe. Let's not worry about anyone else but you right now. Okay? That's it. My job is to make sure you are okay.
[Knocking on door]
Justin: Oh. Excuse me.
Hope: Justin? What are you doing here so late? What--what's going on?
Justin: I have been talking to the D.A. working on a last-minute deal.
Abigail: [Gasps] [Sighing] André. You scared the hell out of me. I just... I wanted to see my son.
André: How are you, Abigail? I'm doing very well, thank you. Thank you for asking.
Abigail: He seems to be settling down.
André: Your grandmother called me. She said you'd run off, and then you disappeared. Laura and I have been worried about you. [Sighs] I had a sense you were in this house.
Abigail: Did you now?
André: Just answer me one question. What in god's name is your game plan?
André: [Whispering] Chad! Hey there, hi.
Hope: A deal? What do you mean? I pled guilty. I'm going to prison.
Justin: Tomorrow, when you go into the courtroom, you'll be sentenced, yes. But that doesn't necessarily mean prison.
Hope: Well, it has to. It's either that or the death sentence.
Justin: Not if the D.A. asks for something else.
Hope: What do you mean if she asks for something else? She hit me with a list of charges, Justin.
Justin: And each one of those charges has to be considered or reconsidered separately. I've already gotten two of the charges off the table: Obstruction and--
Justin: Falsifying evidence.
Hope: That's something. That's great. But the judge is still the one who gets to decide.
Hope: Wait. What? Oh, okay. First the good news, now the bad news?
Justin: I just wanted to tell you that we drew judge Fitzpatrick.
Rafe: Oh, for god's sake. You got to be kidding me. Fitzpatrick's on the DiMera payroll!
Justin: If this judge utters one word--one word that even remotely sounds prejudicial, I will go after her on appeal and get the whole thing thrown out. She knows. She knows just how easy it'll be to prove that she's a DiMera lackey. She is going to bend over backwards to play nice.
Hope: She could still push for the maximum.
Justin: I know this is upsetting. But trust me. You don't have to worry about Fitzpatrick.
Hope: Right. No worries.
Chad: What are you-- what are you doing? Who were you talking to, man? You on the phone?
Chad: Oh, yeah? You were talking to someone.
André: Oh, no, I was just-- just sharing some thoughts with my nephew here about what tomorrow may bring. Weren't we, Thomas?
Chad: Right. Look, André, you don't live here anymore, all right? You can't just keep showing up unannounced, understood?
André: Oh, absolutely. And I--and I apologize, and it will never happen again. I promise. The reason I wanted to come and see you in person was because I was going over my Japanese deal...[Sighs], To sort the details, I just--
Chad: All right, all right. Well, just text me next time, all right? I got brad bush calling me all the time with his infinite amount of questions.
André: Oh, he's a detail stickler, is he?
Chad: Yes, and I sent the nanny home, so I need to take Thomas upstairs so I can go through these files before I call him again.
André: No, no, no, no, no. He's almost asleep. Why don't you just go on and-- and I'll take care of him.
Chad: Uh, no. I don't think so.
André: No, no, no. Don't you understand? Why disturb the child? I'll just get a couple of books and I'll start reading, that's all. Well, go on. Listen. He'll be sleeping. It won't be that traumatic.
Chad: Yeah, I'm not worried about him being traumatized. I just don't think that--
André: No, no, I meant for me being traumatized. Listen to me: If he tries to get out of the crib and overpower me, I promise I will yell for help. And I know where to find you.
JJ: Why don't--why don't you sit down here and--
Gabi: I'll stand.
Gabi: Fine, explain, JJ. It's now or never.
JJ: Just--it's just really hard, okay?
Gabi: You think this is easy? For me?
JJ: I'm sorry.
Gabi: You already said that, JJ. And you also said that you wanted a chance to explain. Now, I'm not gonna be here forever. God, I don't even know-- I don't even know if I want to hear this.
JJ: I--I know, I just... when Abigail escaped from shady hills, she completely disappeared. We couldn't even get a trace on her. And that plane went down in the gulf of Mexico, off of Florida. We were notified that she'd been one of the passengers. She was using a different name, but the photo I.D. Was Abigail.
Gabi: JJ, I know. I know all of this. I get it, I... I'm really sorry that you lost your sister. She was an amazing person. But I stayed here because you told me you wanted a chance to explain why you cheated on me!
JJ: I know. So, I went down to Miami to see what I could do to help. It--you know everything that went down there, it's just... I felt... this awful weight put down on me, you know? My sister was under all that water with no life left in her, and I had to call my mom and tell her that. When I hung up, honest to God, it was like I was drowning. I felt like I couldn't breathe, like I couldn't see, and I was never gonna be able to come up for air again. Just--just like Abigail.
Gabi: JJ, I--I get that, but I don't--I don't understand what this has to do with...
JJ: I'm getting there. So, I--I was feeling all that stuff. I went to the hotel, and I figured a few drinks wouldn't hurt. And that's where my memory kind of cuts off. Things went hazy, and I don't remember anything else. I...
Victor: Come on, wake up. Open your eyes. Wake up! Damn it.
Kayla: Kayla Brady.
Victor: Kayla, it's Victor. I need you to come over to the house right away. Theresa's OD'd on God knows what, and I don't know how much time she has.
Kayla: Is she breathing?
Victor: Barely. Her pulse is about as low as it can get. She needs you right away.
Kayla: I'm on my way.
Victor: Come on. Wake up. Theresa! Hey! Come on! Open your eyes! My belly pain and constipation?
André: You can come out now.
Abigail: Thank you. I--I was worried that you were gonna tell Chad that I was here. I don't want him to know.
André: Oh. Of course not. And then he'd have all those little pesky questions about-- like how you're still alive.
Abigail: Oh. Right.
André: By the way, I have a question. Not as dramatic. But I thought your grandmother and I were very specific. We warned you not to come back here yet. And yet, you come to the DiMera mansion? And if you didn't want to see Chad, couldn't you have broken into some other person's place?
Abigail: I had to see my son.
André: Oh. Yes, of course. A mother's yearning.
Abigail: And I didn't break in. I have a key. I know the security code, remember? It's my home.
André: Ah, yes. That's when you were still alive.
Abigail: Why do you always sneer at everything? When grandma Laura told me what happened to JJ, I had to hear how he was, okay? Plus, I wanted to check on my mom.
André: And your precious little boy.
Abigail: Right. Now, I had planned to do everything from a distance, and not let anyone see me, but--
André: But not--well, you're saying you just threw caution to the wind.
Abigail: I'm sorry. Look, I know you're not happy that I'm here. But you're not gonna tell anyone, are you? I mean... we can still be friends. Like it was at the beginning. Right?
Rafe: Well, Justin's back at it with the D.A.
Hope: Seems so late.
Rafe: He's been meeting with her for days. And the man's worked harder for you than anyone, and frankly... frankly, Justin's the only one who can do something for you right now.
Hope: Everyone in this building's behind me. Because of you.
Rafe: I don't know about that. I think everyone in this building knows why you did what you did. Have you seen the news coverage?
Hope: No. No, I try to stay away from it. I... all I need right now is you. Honestly, babe, I don't know what I would have done without you.
[Knocking on door]
Rafe: Well, luckily for you, I'm not the only one who's in your corner right now. Come in.
Jennifer: Hey, there. Up for making a few decisions? Come here. It's okay. It's gonna be okay. It's okay.
Gabi: JJ, you're not-- you're not making a lot of sense. If the rest of the night was a total blank, then how do you know you cheated on me?
JJ: When I woke up in my hotel room, I didn't have any clothes on, and the room was a mess, and...
Gabi: And what, JJ?
JJ: There was something left behind. A message.
Gabi: What did it say?
JJ: "Thanks for an amazing night. Call me." Or--or something like that. I was so hungover I could barely see, and I destroyed the note when I realized what I'd done.
Gabi: Oh, okay. Destroyed it. Who was it signed from?
JJ: There wasn't any name.
Gabi: Phone number?
JJ: No. And I searched my phone to see if there's any new contacts. There wasn't. You can search for yourself--
Gabi: No, please.
JJ: I'm sorry. But see, there--there was nothing in my--in my pockets. My wallet wasn't touched. I still have my phone and my credit cards. I went through everything. I mean... at least she didn't rob me, right?
Gabi: Oh, that's a relief. Yeah, what a consolation.
JJ: All I can figure is that I met some woman in that bar... and she must have come back with me--
Gabi: Yeah, and then you had blackout sex with her. Who knows how many times? Do you know? Because...no one knows! And then you came back here and you had sex with me?
Kayla: I don't care, Victor. You should have let the EMTs in the house.
Victor: This has to be kept private. I'll explain it to you later. Now, just wake her up!
Kayla: Don't bark orders at me. My only priorities right now are to keep her alive and prevent brain damage.
Victor: What are you gonna do?
Kayla: I'm gonna try to get as much as I can out of her stomach, and I'm gonna pray to God that you didn't get here too late.
Gabi: I think I'm gonna throw up.
JJ: I'm disgusted with myself too.
Gabi: And then you--and you waited till now to tell me this?
JJ: I--I wanted to tell you when I came back, but...
Gabi: But what? What? You thought that I wouldn't understand?
JJ: No, I was just still so messed up. And my mom was in pieces. And then those guys broke out of prison and we were under siege, and I... I kept waiting.
Gabi: Until today.
JJ: There was a pat of me that said I wasn't gonna say anything. 'Cause I--I knew how badly it was going to hurt you. But then, I remembered how I cheated on Paige and I tried to hide it, but then we she found out, it made it so much worse. And I couldn't let myself do that to you. I respect you too much. You deserve to know the kind of guy you hooked up with. Listen, all I can ask for and hope for is that somehow, you can forgive me.
Rafe: I'm gonna go get you some of our wonderful coffee. Let you two talk.
Hope: Thank you.
Hope: He's my other rock.
Jennifer: Yeah. Of course he is. He's always going to be. I--I--I... wanted to bring you an outfit for tomorrow, but I didn't know really what you would want to wear, so I just grabbed three out of your closet.
Hope: Jewelry. Oh, I don't know how I would have coped without all of you. Thank you.
Jennifer: Hey. We are always there for you.
Hope: How's Ciara? Whenever she comes to visit, it feels... of course she's putting up a front. Right?
Jennifer: She's good. She's hanging in there, hope. She's so strong. You don't have to worry about her. I know that's a silly thing to say, because you can't tell a mom not to worry about her child.
Hope: Thank you for what you're doing, for everything that you've done.
Jennifer: Family is first and last, always.
Hope: Family. First and last. Always.
André: Abigail, I've kept your secret all these months. Why would I turn on you now?
Abigail: Thank you.
André: But I did you a favor. And one day, I will collect. Know that.
Abigail: Yeah. Un--understood. [Clears throat] You know, I--I can't tell you how grateful I am. For everything that you've done. I mean, to you and grandma both. When I escaped from shady hills, I just remember, I came back here to leave that letter for Chad, and... you were such a godsend. This... this is for Chad. I told him that I want him to have a normal life, without me, that I'm never coming back. He's free.
André: Whoa, whoa, whoa. You poor thing. I promise I'll--I'll make sure he gets it.
Abigail: Thank you.
André: Oh, wait, wait. Where are you going?
Abigail: I--I don't... I don't know. I don't really have a plan.
André: But you've got to have some kind of plan soon.
Abigail: I don't--I... André, I'm just... [Deep breath] I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I'm sorry... all I know is that I'm never gonna get better. I'm never gonna get better. And I can't have my husband and my mom just holding onto some stupid idea that everything's gonna be fine, 'cause it's not gonna happen! I mean, and even if I lived here, if I... I mean, I--I could be a danger-- I could be a real danger to-- to Chad and to even Thomas--
André: But going back to shady--
Abigail: I'll never go back there. I will never go back there. I will not spend the rest of my life seeing my husband make his Sunday visits to his crazy wife. He doesn't deserve that. So now he... he can have a new life. With Thomas. But... not if I'm around. Right?
André: But you do understand that Chad will never stop looking for you.
Abigail: Then help me. André, help me. Help me disappear. You were so kind. Within hours, you'd whisked me out of town.
André: That wasn't difficult.
Abigail: Then when that plane went down over the gulf of Mexico, somehow you managed to link my picture to the name of that poor woman who died.
André: Hmm. [Chuckles] Voila. You were gone for good.
Abigail: And Chad could move on. A widower. It was perfect.
André: Abigail. I don't know how much you know about death, but I understand it's permanent.
Abigail: Very funny. Coming from you.
André: And here you are back in Salem, back in-- well, if I can say that, your old haunting ground.
Abigail: It's just what I said, André. I just want to make sure that JJ's okay, and I wanted to check on my mom. And Thomas. I... and then, when he-- when he lost wrinkles in the square, I just felt like--
André: I'm sorry. He lost what?
Abigail: Oh, uh, um, wrinkles is a little stuffed dog. It just helps him sleep. I...
André: And so it's imperative for you to return it to him?
Abigail: Calmed down right away after he got it.
André: [Chuckles] Well, what can I say, you're just such a wonderful mother.
Abigail: Oh, I-- I--I don't know. I mean... I mean, what if... what if I showed my face? I mean, what-- what would I say? How do-- I mean, am I well enough? I don't--I don't know. I just... [Sighs] I just want to hold Thomas. Just for a few minutes. Is that okay? Okay. Hi. Hi.
Chad: All right, well, I still want to know what's going on, so I'll--I'll just--I'll check into it and get back to you. Okay. From the first moment you met
Chad: André! What the hell's the door locked for?
André: Oh, just force of habit. Actually, to be honest, I wanted to keep Harold out. I didn't want him to be disturbing Thomas.
Chad: Right. How is he? Did he give you any trouble?
André: Oh, no, no, no. He was just fine. Mm. He doesn't do much, does he? Oh, my goodness. Look at the time. I have to be going.
Chad: Whoa, where you going? I'm done with the brad bush thing. I thought we were gonna go over the Japan deal.
André: Oh. Yeah. I thought about that when you were gone. I thought it was just silly for me to go over the details with you. It's just so boring. Anyway, nice to see you. Ciao.
Gabi: What makes it really worse is that I still love you. I just hate you so much, I just want to scream.
JJ: Okay, Gabi, you have every right to hate me, but I just thought that if I was honest, and--
Gabi: And you thought what? That everything would be okay? That because you told the truth, it's gonna be fine?
JJ: No. I love you.
Gabi: You cheated on Paige, and now you went and you cheated on me. You're a cheater, okay? That's who you are, down to the bone, and you're never gonna change, JJ. God, I never want to see you again.
Victor: Is she gonna be all right?
Kayla: I hope so. I think I got everything out of her stomach. She's groggy, but at least she's responsive. Why are those EMTs better than the ones that I brought?
Victor: Because I pay their salaries and they know not to ask questions. Now listen, I'll go with them. We'll go in the backdoor of the hospital. It'll be closed now. We'll use the donors' private elevator to get upstairs.
Kayla: Why all the secrecy?
Victor: I want you to register her under an assumed name. And don't tell me you can't do it.
Kayla: Like I said, why all the secrecy?
Victor: Kayla, I can't tell you. And you can't tell anyone what's happened.
Kayla: Not even her mother? My sister?
Victor: Fine, you can tell Kim and Shane, but that's it.
Kayla: What about Brady?
Victor: No. No, you can't say anything to Brady. Or anyone else. Kayla, trust me, you don't want to know. Please, just do it. I can't tell you how important it is to keep this secret.
Kayla: All right. I guess my only responsibility is to keep her alive. If this is a suicide attempt, then I have to follow the proper protocol.
Victor: Understood. Thank you for what you did. If it weren't for you, she'd be dead.
[Knocking on door]
Rafe: So, how'd it go with the D.A.?
Justin: Not well. But it went better with André. I have him talking to Trask right now. He is convincing her to drop the conspiracy to commit fraud and wrongful imprisonment.
Hope: So then...
Justin: You--we'll be down to just one count: Murder one.
Rafe: Okay. So, uh, is there--is there a chance of getting that reduced?
Justin: The judge could reduce it to negligent homicide. It happens. But no matter what, our defense remains the same. Temporary insanity. PTSD. Diminished capacity. Everything Stefano has done to you over the years will be on record before she rules. I'm going to convince her that there's only so much a human being can take. Sorry. I wish there was... some kind of promise I could make--
Hope: Justin. Don't apologize. No one could have done what you've achieved.
Rafe: Hey, come on. Don't give up hope. Justin said there's a chance. There's a chance.
Hope: I know. I'm good. Really, I am.
Jennifer: Hey. JJ, what's wrong?
JJ: I told her.
Jennifer: Oh, honey.
JJ: The whole story. She never wants to see me again.
Jennifer: Oh, honey. I'm so sorry.
Jennifer: I'm so sorry.
JJ: Me too.
Kayla: No one is to enter that room except me, all right? Yeah, I will go in and draw the blood in two hours, and we'll redo the tests. Okay. Thanks, Leon. [Sighs]
Kimberly: Hey, sis. What's up?
Kayla: Hey, Kimberly. Um, listen, I need to tell you something. Um... I just want you to know that Theresa--she is stable, and she's going to be fine.
Kayla: But we had to admit her into the hospital tonight for an apparent overdose.
Kimberly: What? Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Kayla: Victor found her in time, and we pumped her stomach, and we have every reason to believe that she's gonna be fine. But this was an emergency. Honey? Honey, are you there?
Kayla: You know, I--I know that California is a long way away, and Shane is probably tied up with, you know, whatever he does, but if you could just come here... [Sighs] You know, Victor wants me to keep it quiet, but the doctor/patient confidentiality doesn't apply when someone intentionally tries to kill themselves. I just--I'm gonna have to insist that she get help.
Kimberly: Okay, um... as a matter of fact, uh, Brady called us yesterday and said that she was really upset, so, uh, we're--we're very close. We're on our way. I promise we'll be there soon.
Kayla: That'd be great. Listen, come straight to the hospital, okay? And don't ask for Theresa. Just--just have me paged. All right?
Kimberly: Okay, sis. Thank you.
Shane: What? What? What? What's happened?
Kimberly: Dear God. She overdosed, Shane. This is a nightmare.
Shane: Oh! I know. I know.
Kimberly: It's a nightmare.
Shane: I know.
Kimberly: What have we done?
Shane: It'll be all right. It'll be okay.
Kimberly: What have we done?
Shane: Come on. It'll be okay.
Kimberly: What have we done?
Chad: It's about time we head upstairs for bed, huh, buddy? Huh? What's going on? Hey. Where'd your little wrinkles come from, huh? Guess he was in here the whole time. Silly daddy.
Shane: Hey there.
Kimberly: Hey, sweetheart.
Shane: We're both so, so glad to see you're awake.
Kimberly: Oh, baby. You gave us quite a scare.
Shane: My God, Jeannie. You could have died.
Theresa: I'm sorry. I wasn't thinking.
Shane: Your aunt Kayla saved you. Why, honey? Why'd you do it?
Shane: Why--why did you decide to take all those drugs?
Theresa: Escape. I couldn't get Brady to stop loving me. He wouldn't hate me. He just... he wouldn't stop trying to save me, and I... there's just no way out.
Shane: No. Come on. Jeannie. Of course there's a way. And we'll help you find it.
Theresa: It's all my fault.
Kimberly: What is, honey? What?
Theresa: The life I led. Hooking up with Mateo. [Sighs] I never listened to anybody, and... now I have to pay. You have to make me a promise. Please. I have to keep them safe. You have to get Brady and Tate. You have to--to help them walk away from me, okay? You--you have to promise me. Promise me that you'll help me do that.
Kimberly: Of course.
Shane: You bet, sweetheart.
Kimberly: You bet.
Shane: We'll make this work. You have to promise me that you will never, ever try something like this again.
Rafe: I'm gonna make sure these clothes Jennifer brought you are given to you first thing tomorrow. Get some sleep, okay?
Hope: You know, when Justin was saying that he might be able to get some of the other charges dropped, for a moment, I-- I almost felt hopeful.
Rafe: I'm with Justin. I think he's got a shot. Hey, hey. Hey, no. Come on. Don't give up. We have fought too hard. You hear me? You'll beat this. We'll beat this together. We will. I'm telling you.
André: Moves... and countermoves. Right, father? Tomorrow, I will be the white knight. Proof that hope framed me, Rafe and roman as her co-conspirators? I'll keep that one in my pocket. [Chuckles] Just for a rainy day, hey? But make no mistake. Tomorrow, your killer will face justice head on. This town will have a brand-new villain. And this time, it will not be a DiMera.
