(The last third is missing; we hope to have it up this weekend sometime)

Jennifer: Whoo....

JJ: Let me give you a hand.

Jennifer: Oh, yeah. Thanks, honey. I bought every dress in Abigail's size, and whatever she doesn't like, she can just take back.

JJ: She hasn't changed yet?

Jennifer: No, that's impossible--I just got back.

JJ: Mom, she's not here. I thought she left to see Chad.

Jennifer: What? Di-did she leave a note?

JJ: No, and I checked the whole house. I kept telling myself that she was with you, that you were driving her!

Jennifer: It's probably not a big deal. Maybe--maybe she realized that Chad is not gonna care what she's wearing and...she's probably in his arms right now.

Claire: You know, sorry that dating app turned out to be such a dud.

Ciara: It wasn't a dud. Rory was.

Claire: [Laughs] Well, you know, I guess you have to encounter a couple frogs before you meet your prince charming. Just give it a while. I'm sure you'll find someone as great as Theo.

Theo: Sure you wanna do that?

Chad: Trying to psych me out?

Theo: No, no, it's a real question, I mean, I just, I couldn't...see why you would do that.

Chad: You're just like your grandfather.

Theo: Nope. He was a great player, and I'm just...really good.

Chad: Hey, you know, um... I wanted to talk to you about something...Theo. There's gonna be some news coming out about your grandfather, and I wanted you to hear it from me first.

Theo: Okay...

Chad: Hope is--hope is gonna appeal her conviction. Uh... see, your grandfather was... pretty the end. And he knew that he wasn't gonna make it.

Theo: So, uh, he didn't tell anyone?

Chad: No. What he did was he went to buy a gun... so he could get somebody else to end things for him because he-- he just didn't want to appear weak.

Theo: I'm sorry--trying to make someone else do it for him? That's weak. That's weak. So what, he tricked Ciara's mom, and now she's in jail?

Chad: Yeah. Come on--hey!

Theo: I-I--I hate chess. I hate chess. I hate him.

Chad: Listen, hey, Theo. Look at me, Theo, breathe. Look at me. I get it. I had a hard time wrapping my head around--around all of it too, but what I finally decided was that... look, he just--he didn't--he didn't know--he didn't know what to do. Okay? And what you have to remember is that he loved you.

Theo: Can I go tell Ciara?

Chad: I think that--I think that she probably already knows.

[Tense music]

JJ: I don't understand it, Mom. Why would Abigail take off to go see Chad without-- wait a minute.

Jennifer: What?

JJ: No, she--she was looking for that little toy lamb. Said that she had to have something to give Thomas to-- to break the ice. And then she said that she'd take care of it. Maybe she went to get him something.

Jennifer: I-I hope you're right, I hope that she didn't run away again, JJ. She is still so fragile right now.

JJ: I know, but Mom, this morning...she seemed better. Stronger. When she gets back with Chad, she'll really start getting stronger. I just--I really hope it's soon because I don't know how much longer I can keep this secret from Gabi. I-I know I have to. Gabi can't know about her.

[Cell phone beeps] It's work.

Jennifer: Oh! Hi!

Gabi: Hi. Did you know your door was open?

Jennifer: Come on in. No. Yes. But come on. Sorry, honey. Can I take your purse? JJ's dealing with a work issue.

Gabi: It's okay. I'll just hand it to him.

Jennifer: Okay.

JJ: All done. I thought you were gonna call me when you were done working.

Gabi: I called, but it went to voicemail.

JJ: I didn't see it.

Gabi: Yeah, well... I like surprises, don't you?

[Lightly suspenseful music]

Jennifer: Oh, you two have a date--that's nice. Uh, JJ, thank you for all your help. Go have a good time.

JJ: All right, I'll see you later.

Gabi: I'm sorry, am I, uh, interrupting something?

Jennifer: No, not at all.

JJ: Text me if anything happens, okay?

Jennifer: Yeah, I will.

JJ: So what do you feel like doing tonight?

Jennifer: Oh, my gosh. I don't know how much more of this I can take...seriously.

Abigail: Don't worry, you don't have to.

Jennifer: You're back!

Abigail: I...I'm sorry. I heard--I heard Gabi's voice, so I just wanted to stay in the kitchen.

Jennifer: Honey, we didn't even know that you were leaving. We were so worried about you.

Abigail: I know, I'm really sorry, but, mom, I meant what I said. It's almost over.

Jennifer: Okay. So you didn't change your mind.

Abigail: Well, I almost did, but...well, I left to go get Thomas something, because I wanted to give him something when I see him.

Jennifer: That's what JJ told me.

Abigail: Yes. And I...

Jennifer: What?

Abigail: Well, I saw Chad and Thomas in the square, and he had made a memorial for me, and it was an angel.

Jennifer: What, and y-you... you didn't say anything, honey?

Abigail: I was going to, but then I...

Chad: I just--just...wish you had had more time with your mom and mostly could have had your own memories with her. God, did she love you.

[Somber music]

The first time I saw your mom, I thought she was the most perfect, beautiful thing I'd ever seen in the world. When she had you in her arms, she would look down at you, and it was something. Her eyes...

I sent her away because I--I just--I wanted her to be her again.

There was more fear in her eyes than love... I thought.

I'd give anything to tell her I love her one more time. You know, I know that I'M... never gonna...get that chance again. I think I've...come to grips with that and accepted it. You know, you and me, we gotta move on with our life, little man. We gotta try to... try to get it going. And if we wanna talk to your mom or spend time with her, then we're just gonna come here. We're gonna be able to do it anytime we want. I don't know if I'm ever gonna be able to love anyone the way I loved your mother, but I know she would want me to try. She would want us to be happy. That's exactly what we're gonna do.

[Somber music]

[Baby babbling]

 I know, I know. Come on. Come on.

[Clears throat]

[Moving music]

I had a panic attack.

Jennifer: Oh, baby--

Abigail: But it's not gonna happen again, mom. It's not, because I-- Dario, he talked me down and made me realize I really--I need to go see Chad, and I need to tell him I'm alive, and I need to do it tonight.

Abe: [Chuckles] It is, uh... it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Valerie: Everywhere you go.

[Both laughing]

Abe: Hey, you know, is it hard heading into the holidays without your son? Or is he coming here for Christmas?

Julie: Abe! [Chuckling] And Valerie! I been shoppin' till I'm droppin'.

Abe: I'll bet. Hey, won't you join us?

Julie: Oh, thank you. Just--just for a minute. My feet are killing me. So Valerie... are you going to go back home for Christmas?

Valerie: No. Actually, I'm in Salem for Christmas.

Julie: I'm sure Abe is very pleased about that.

Abe: I am, I am. Actually, I was just asking Valerie if her son might be coming to Salem for Christmas.

Julie: Oh, you have a son? I didn't know that.

[Mellow music]

Gabi: Look at that angel. That is so beautiful. Chad must have done that.

JJ: Yeah. It's great. Are you sure you don't wanna go to the movies? The film society's showing "a Christmas story."

Gabi: No. No, I wanna stay here and talk. Feel like we haven't spent a lot of alone time lately.

JJ: Okay, all right. Okay. Whatever.

Gabi: Hey, you were a little, um...quiet on the way over here. Is something going on?

JJ: No.

Gabi: Sure about that?

JJ: Yeah, I'm--I'm sure. [Small laugh] Why are you looking at me like that?

Gabi: Well, because, uh, when I went to your house it just felt like you and your mom were upset about something.

JJ: No, it's just... just work, you know.

Gabi: Right. Work.

JJ: It's just that I've been a little stressed, and-- but that's all. It's not important.

Gabi: I mean, it must be important, because you can't even look at me in the eye.

JJ: What are you talking ab-- of course I can look at you in the eye--see? Here. How's that?

Gabi: Not funny.

JJ: Not trying to be. Um, Gabi... look, maybe I-I wasn't looking you in the eye because it--it's making me uncomfortable that, you know, you're getting worked up for nothing.

Gabi: I doubt that.

JJ: What is that supposed to mean?

Gabi: JJ, if something is bothering you... I want you to be able to talk to me about it. I wanna know, okay? You said no more secrets.

JJ: I know. It's just... office politics at work. That's all. No secret. Just boring. [Small laugh] Please...can we just drop this?

Gabi: Sure. Yeah. Let's drop it.

[Lightly edgy music]

Chad: Hey, so, um, so what's new, man? What's going on?

Theo: Um...well, I have a girlfriend.

Chad: What? Really?

Theo: Yeah, me and Claire are dating.

Chad: You and Claire?

Theo: Yeah. Does that surprise you?

Chad: [Stammers] Nah, I just kinda thought that you with Ciara.

Theo: Yeah, uh, that didn't happen. Uh, anyways, I probably should get going now 'cause I gotta meet up with Claire, so...

Chad: Okay. Hey, come here.

Theo: And, um...thanks for telling me about Nonno. You know, I just--I have to go and think about it.

Chad: Yeah. It's a lot, so...

Theo: See ya.

Chad: All right, see ya.

André: Oh, hello, Theo.

Theo: Hey. Bye.

André: He seemed to be in a bit of a...hurry.

Chad: Yeah. He, uh, he has date. Think he wanted to get out of the house since I told him what father did to hope.

André: Oh. Did you also mention the fact that hope pulled the trigger... and robbed father of the little time he had left?

Chad: Yeah. I spared him the, uh, the part where he was a coward and decided to take the easy way out... and--and--and denied any of us the chance to come to grips with what was going on or say good-bye.

André: Maybe he was trying to spare us.

Chad: [Chuckles] You know what, no. It's hard enough to lose somebody that you love. But then to find out that they're--they're lying and manipulating and cheating and playing God with people's lives? No, that's--come on, it's unforgiveable, André.

[Dramatic musical swell]

Jennifer: Oh, honey, you're doing the right thing--you are.

Abigail: I think so too.

Jennifer: Yeah. Okay, so I just bought every dress in the store in your size, because I didn't know what you would like. Not that Chad is even gonna care about what you're wearing, so here ya go. Take this and this, and then you just go upstairs and just get ready.

Abigail: Thank you, mom, so much, just... for everything.

Jennifer: You're gonna be so happy, baby.

Abigail: I love you.

Jennifer: I love you. Okay, go on!

[Emotional music]

Theo: So...why didn't you tell me?

Ciara: Because I knew you'd be upset.

Theo: Okay, well, are they gonna let your mom out now knowing that he made her do it?

Ciara: It might take a while. Theo, we don't need to talk about this. I know that you loved him.

Theo: Yeah, well, I mean, Chad said he wasn't thinking straight, but...still, it was really wrong.

Ciara: We have been through stuff like this before-- your grandpa and my parents. And we've never let them not let us be friends. So...let's not start now.

Theo: Ciara, I'm mad at Nonno, I'm not mad at you. You're always gonna be my friend.

[Soft music]

Valerie: I do have a son. He's back home in D.C.

Julie: Oh. What does he do there? I mean, is he in school still or is he working?

Valerie: He has a job.

Abe: You know, he is more than welcome to join us for Christmas.

Valerie: Oh, that's really sweet, but he can't really get away.

Julie: His boss won't let him off for a few days at Christmastime?

Valerie: It's a new job, so he didn't feel comfortable asking.

Julie: Well, that's disappointing for you. Not to be with him, I mean.

Valerie: [Small laugh] Hmm.

Julie: Do you have other children, Valerie?

Valerie: No. No, I don't.

Julie: Well, I hope there's other family in D.C. that he can with--cousins, aunts and uncles? I-I wouldn't want him to be alone--I hope not!

Valerie: No, no, no, of course not, and I'll see him when I get back after January.

[Cell phone rings]

Abe: Sorry. Yeah, this is work.


Abe: Um...I'll--I'll be back. Excuse me.

Valerie: Okay.

Julie: It can be tough when you can't be with your family at Christmastime. I'm so worried about Hope.

Valerie: Well, of course you are. Is David coming back?

Julie: David? No! I haven't spent a holiday with my son in years.

Valerie: I'm sorry to hear that.

Julie: Well...sad to say, uh, though we try to fight it, when we are with each other, we push each other's buttons. And we know it.'s best for us if we're in different time zones.

Valerie: [Small laugh]

Julie: Thank God for the phone and social media.

Valerie: Right.

Julie: Well, I really should be getting back to the marts of trade. Valerie, it was so nice to see you, and... I do hope we get to have that lunch sometime. I'd love to know all about your boy. Merry Christmas.

Valerie: Merry Christmas.

[Lightly edgy music]

[Soft music]

Abigail: I know what it'll be like.

Chad: I-I've prayed for this. I have prayed every day for you to come back to me. You will never understand how much Thomas and I missed you.

Abigail: [Laughs] Really, Chad, I thought that I was doing the right thing by letting you be free.

Chad: I don't wanna be free. I-I want-- you are my wife, and I will love you until the day that I die.

Abigail: Chad, I'm not going anywhere. I swear that now I'm here, I'm not leaving--

Chad: I know--I won't let you.

[Soft instrumentals]

Abigail: At least that's what I pray it'll be like.

JJ: Gabi? Something wrong?

Gabi: Yeah, actually, I'm not, um...I'm not feeling okay. I'm gonna...I'm gonna go.

JJ: What is it? What's wrong?

Julie: Oh! This is a surprise, running into the two of you.

Gabi: Actually, I'm going.

JJ: No, wait, I'll take you home.

Gabi: I just wanna be alone, okay?

Julie: Wow. What's up with Gabi?

Hey there, hi.

Ciara: Oh, I almost forgot. I got you something.

Theo: It's not even Christmas yet.

Gabi: I know. But I made these just for you.

Theo: Wow, really?

Gabi: Yep. Grandpa and Julie wanted to make cookies, so I suggested ginger molasses instead of sugar cookies.

Theo: And because they're my favorite.

Ciara: [Chuckles] Yep.

Theo: Thank you.

Ciara: Well, thank you...for being such a great friend.

Theo: Ciara, you didn't-- you didn't have to do this.

Ciara: I know. I just wanted to.

Claire: Hi, guys! Sorry I'm late. You seem to be doing just fine without me.

Julie: I guess things are never gonna be good between Gabi and me.

JJ: She said she wasn't feeling very well. You know, I wonder why she took off like that.

[Cell phone rings]

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 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 had sex with me?

JJ: Gabi, I'm worried about you. Please call me back.

Jennifer: [Gasps] [Laughs] Oh, baby. You look perfect. You--you look beautiful.

Abigail: I just can't believe I'm actually gonna go through with this.

Jennifer: I think tomorrow you're gonna wonder why you had any doubts at all.

Abigail: Yeah, probably.

[Jennifer giggles]

Abigail: Tomorrow. It's been so long since I've looked forward to tomorrow.

Jennifer: Uh, would you like me to drive you over there?

Abigail: Oh, no, no, no. I think... I think that this is something that I need to do alone.

Jennifer: No, yeah, I-I get that...I do. Let me help you. Here, I'll hold this.

Abigail: Hold that.

Jennifer: All right, honey, well, um, I'm here. I'm here if you need me. Call me--anything.

Abigail: Like you always have been, Mom. I love you.

Jennifer: I love you so much, baby.

Abigail: I love you.

Jennifer: You're gonna be great. Okay.

[Gentle instrumentals]

[Cell phone rings]

André: Abigail! What can I do for you?

Abigail: I'm ready to see Chad.

[Ominous chords]

Theo: Hey, Claire. Um...would you like a cookie?

Claire: Oh, no, thanks. Talk about empty calories... great grandma was actually asking for you. She has a card for your mom.

Ciara: Oh, yeah. Is she okay?

Claire: Well, I think she was glad for a little company.

Ciara: I hope she's better before Christmas.

Claire: Yeah. You know, I just felt so bad for her...all alone up there. That's why I was late.

Theo: Oh, yeah, no, that's fine.

Claire: So Ciara made you cookies.

Theo: Yeah, uh, my favorite.

Claire: Mm. Wonder why she did that.

Theo: Yeah. I mean, she said because she wanted to thank me for being such a good friend. But I don't think that's all it?

Claire: Really?

Theo: I mean, yeah, I mean, she...she made me cookies, and she hates making cookies, and... she hugs me a lot.

Claire: Ha. Yeah, see, you know, you and Ciara, you're like brother and sister. But you and I are a little bit different. Because...sister won't do this.

[Jazzy, edgy music]

André: Oh! May I say how happy I was to receive your call.

Abigail: I can imagine. You love getting your way.

André: [Laughs] No. May I say you look absolutely radiant? But we have to be honest, prepared. 'Cause Chad's initial response to you may not be...something like out of a fairy tale.

Abigail: Yeah, I know. You don't have to remind me. I think...think I'm actually the one that's been telling you I don't know, I just... I don't know if he's gonna be able to forgive me for everything that I've done.

André: Mm. But you have to trust that this will eventually work itself out.

Abigail: I don't know. I-I wouldn't be so sure. I mean, André, I saw Chad today here with Thomas, and... [Small laugh] He was talking to Thomas and he was...telling him how much he loved me.

André: Ha.

Abigail: How much he missed me.

André: Ha ha. See?

Abigail: But... then he took off his ring. He said he was ready to move on
