Episode #12991 ~ Kate accuses André of stealing from the company; Hope makes plans to recruit an inmate army to combat her enemies; Deimos & Brady conspire on how to prove Chloe's baby is Nicole & Daniel's.
Provided By SuzanneDeimos: Looks like Nicole's gonna have a very happy new year.
Brady: Why do you say that?
Deimos: That was the lab. Once I get them the sample of the baby's DNA, they can have the results within 24 hours. Can't wait to see the look on Nicole's face when she comes to realize that the baby she thought was Chloe's all this time--
Brady: [Mumbles] Number one, keep your voice down. I don't want Nicole overhearing something that may not be true. You understand me?
Deimos: I know it's true, all right? As far as I'm concerned, the DNA test is a technicality.
Brady: All right. Where's the baby now?
Brady: She's in with Chloe and Nicole.
Brady: You know Nicole hasn't left either of their sights for more than five minutes since we got here.
Deimos: Yeah, that's probably because Nicole, on an unconscious level, knows that holly is hers.
Brady: Don't--don't read too much into that kind of devotion, okay? Because knowing Nicole, she's probably making up for the fact that Chloe can't be there.
Deimos: Why are you still fighting this? We already know that Chloe got impregnated again with Nicole and Daniel's embryo. Hell, she even asked her to name the baby, what more do you want?
Brady: Know what I want, Deimos, I want proof. You know, the irrefutable kind in the form of a test that says Nicole is that baby's mother. At least a confirmation from Chloe, for god's sake.
Deimos: Well, I'm not about to sit around and wait for her to come out of that coma. I mean, heaven knows how long that's gonna take.
Brady: Then let's--let's get the sample and do the DNA test.
Deimos: Yeah, easier said than done. Nicole won't tear herself away from that baby.
Nicole: Good, huh? Yeah. [Sighs] Oh, Chloe. This isn't right. As much as I love looking after holly... you should be the one holding her. Taking care of her. Singing her to sleep. Do you hear me, Chloe? You need to wake up. This baby needs her mother. Yeah. Chloe.
Shawn: I hate that I can't even hug my own mother.
Hope: Yeah, I hate it, too. God, I miss you and your sister so much. How's Ciara doing?
Shawn: She's good. She's busy, she's studying for finals and she's volunteering at the hospital, and... mom, what is it? What're you-- what do you keep looking at, what's wrong?
Hope: Wha--oh, uh, nothing. No, it's nothing, really, I just--I, um... I have a lot on my mind right now.
Shawn: No, no, no, no, I'm not buying that. What's wrong?
Hope: The situation in here, it's, um... it's gotten a little out of control.
Shawn: Out of control how?
Hope: One of my allies has been murdered. Chille.
Steve: Well, Donovan, you always had a flare for the dramatic.
Rafe: All right, Steve, hold on a sec--it's about hope? What is it?
Shane: Well, it just might be that hope didn't kill anyone.
Steve: That doesn't make any sense.
Kayla: That's not possible.
Shane: It's Stefano. Seems like the old son of a bitch might still be alive.
Rafe: Did you just say--
Shane: Stefano DiMera might be alive.
Steve: Is this some kind of sick joke, Donovan?
Shane: No joke. I'm afraid I have it on the highest authority from the ISA. Several of our agents have picked up on chatter about Stefano possibly being alive and seen in various cities around eastern Europe.
Steve: Might be, possibly. Is the bastard alive, or isn't he?
Shane: Well, apparently, there's talk on the street about a new player in town who's making significant moves in the business sector. He's been acquiring assets left and right, spending money like there's no tomorrow.
Kayla: Well, that certainly sounds like Stefano.
Steve: That sounds like a lot of people. I need proof.
Rafe: Yeah, that makes two of us.
Nicole: She is so beautiful, Chloe, I wish... I wish you could see her. I can't wait for you to see her. I knew when I first saw you, you had my heart. And now I can't get enough of you. It's like my arms won't let me let go of you. And maybe it's because I helped deliver you and was there for you when you took your first breath. [Chuckles] But I can see you're gonna have the prettiest smile. Yes. And a dazzling personality. [Chuckles] And your mama is so lucky. But you know what, she doesn't know yet... oh. If she could feel half of what I feel when I hold you... I used to live for the day when I would a connection with my baby. The one you're gonna have with your mama when she wakes up. And I believe that is gonna be very, very soon. Don't you worry, Chloe. Until you do, I'll be here. I will look after your little girl as if she were my own. Yes, I will. Hi. [Chuckles] Hi. [Chuckles]
Deimos: Getting Nicole to step away from that baby long enough for me to get a sample, now that's the problem. But, of course, if we could just tell her why--
Brady: If we tell Nicole that the baby is hers, and it turns out not to be true--
Deimos: I know, I know. She'll be devastated.
Brady: Deimos, you don't know, I do know. I saw her through two miscarriages. I'm not putting her through that hell again.
Deimos: And I say, the evidence is there, Brady. I mean, just the fact that Chloe wouldn't have asked her to name the baby if she didn't know in her heart that the baby belonged to Nicole.
Brady: Honestly? Honestly, that sounds like something Chloe would do. She and Nicole have always been strangely close. So until we can find a way to get that sample without Nicole finding out why--
Deimos: Wait a minute.
Deimos: Maybe we don't need it. Maybe there's another way for us to prove that Nicole is the mother. Kids, are you ready to get this potty started? your face, I don't think this is going to be one of our three martini meetings.
Kate: I need to ask you something.
André: Must be very important, it couldn't wait until we made it home.
Kate: In going over the company books, I've noticed some strange activity with our overseas accounts.
André: Well, what exactly constitutes "strange"?
Kate: Missing money, André.
André: What? You think I had something to do with this?
Kate: Did you?
Shawn: Okay, so... so what makes you think that you're the reason that Chille's dead?
Hope: Because she had just told Sheila and coco to back off me and Annabelle.
Shawn: And you think they're the ones that did it, right?
Hope: I don't think, I know, Shawn. Prison officials are conducting an investigation.
Shawn: You told them what you suspect, right?
Hope: No, of course not.
Shawn: Why? Why wouldn't you?
Hope: Because I don't have solid proof.
Shawn: Okay, hold on, so--okay, coco. Coco... okay, coco's husband is the one that went to prison after you arrested him, right?
Hope: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Exactly. I think these women see me as a threat.
Shawn: So you think that killing Chille was a power play.
Hope: Absolutely. Allying herself with me is what got her killed.
Shawn: No, no, no, no. No, do not go there, do not go there. We both know that she could've said no to Deimos.
Hope: But Shawn, she didn't. She didn't say no and her death has started a war here. Now it's them against me. No, as long... I tried so hard to make allies in this joint the entire time that I've been here, but being a cop... I don't have nearly enough.
Shawn: Okay, what about Hattie? Hattie--I mean, does she care--she carries a lot of weight in here, doesn't she?
Hope: With her blueberry pancakes? What--no, I needed Chille.
Shawn: Okay, mom, listen, I'm gonna go to the warden, I'm gonna make sure that you are safe--
Hope: No! Shawn... don't. No.
Roman: All right, what the hell is this about Stefano?
Marlena: No, he can't be alive.
Steve: According to Shane, he might be.
Shane: My contacts are fairly certain a man they've been tracking is Stefano.
Marlena: Hope confessed to killing him. In his own home--I mean, she's serving time in prison for that right now.
Rafe: She also confessed to burying Stefano's body in a building that was scheduled for demolition. The DNA test on that body prove it was Stefano.
Shane: I know, I know, it's beyond the realm of reason, but let's face it--all of us in this room can attest to the fact that Stefano DiMera's cheated death on several occasions over the last few decades. I wouldn't be here now if I didn't have substantial evidence he's done it again.
Roman: How substantial?
Shane: Well, for starters, there's a physical description, albeit vague. And the fact that this person of interest enjoys opera, chess, and has a penchant for strega.
Marlena: Well, that was Stefano's favorite after dinner drink.
Kayla: But a lot of people like strega, chess, and opera. Come on.
Steve: And a lot of people could fit Stefano's general physical description.
Shane: I know, I expected a certain level of skepticism, not only because this seems so improbable, but if, indeed, Stefano DiMera is still alive--
Marlena: That's a nightmare come true.
Shane: Yeah. Nevertheless... that image was taken from surveillance video shot several days ago in Prague. It's grainy, I know, and the image is somewhat obscured, but you can't deny that there's a resemblance to Stefano DiMera.
Marlena: Well, it's the back of a man sitting in a cafe.
Shane: Yeah. But we're pretty certain that that man is the phoenix, risen once again from the ashes.
Nicole: Oh, it's okay.
Chloe: Oh, my gosh. Is she okay?
Nicole: She is perfect.
Chloe: [Cries happily]
Nicole: What is it, what's wrong?
Chloe: Oh... my head. I want...
Nicole: What do you want? What do you want?
Chloe: My head.
Nicole: Hey, what's happening? Chloe, honey? Hey.
Brady: How's she doing?
Nicole: Well, baby's fine. No change with Chloe. But if I know her, she's fighting with everything she's got to get back to her baby.
Brady: She's lucky to have a friend like you. To be here for her and the baby.
Nicole: I'm lucky she let me back in.
Brady: So the mending of the fences was successful?
Nicole: Not exactly.
Brady: Not--what do you mean?
Nicole: Well, I'm... Chloe was on edge. But I reminded her how much our friendship meant to me. And then she started to open up.
Brady: Did she open up long enough to tell you who the baby's father is?
Nicole: No, we--we didn't get into that. I mean, she told me how things ended with Phillip, and... since we were sharing affairs of the heart, I wrongly assumed that she wanted to hear about Deimos.
Brady: Mm, it's a hot topic still, huh?
Nicole: She immediately got defensive. She started going on about what a bad guy Deimos was after what he did to Maggie and victor and how she hated him, and... you know, everything that I've already heard before.
Brady: I'm sorry about that.
Nicole: She just doesn't know him like I do. I think he is a good man and he has a lot of love in his heart.
Brady: Look, despite Deimos, did you and Chloe make peace?
Nicole: We just decided to agree to disagree where Deimos was concerned, and then... then her water broke. And after that, all that mattered was making sure she and the baby were okay. And with all that snow, there was no way we were making it to a hospital, and... well, you know the rest. And you rescued us, and I still can't believe you braved the storm the way you did.
Brady: Me, me? Are you kidding me? You delivered a baby in a crappy motel all by yourself. I mean, look what you did. And here she is, I mean... go look at her, she's... safe and sound and perfect.
Nicole: You're right about her being perfect. Her sweet little holly. You know, I hope... Chloe doesn't mind that I named her holly.
Brady: No. She told you to name her, didn't she?
Nicole: Yeah, she did. She insisted. And when I asked her why it mattered so much, that's when... she was hit with that pain in her head.
Brady: That's when she passed out, right?
Nicole: Yeah. You know, I thought about it after--you know, maybe she asked me because, you know, I helped deliver the baby, and because we've been... because we've been best friends for so long. [Cries] And there's nothing that your mommy and I wouldn't do for each other.
Brady: All right.
André: You know, Kate, I'm really offended that you think I would stoop so low that I would steal from my own family.
Kate: We both know you're not above playing dirty if you think the circumstances call for it. And André, you already broke your promise to Chad not to keep secrets.
André: Well, I told you it was because it wasn't ready. I wanted to present it to him fully formed. Speaking of which, what about your sources in china? Have they been able to track down the microchip?
Kate: Not yet, but don't change the subject.
André: Without those microchips, the location manager is not gonna be fully operational, which means we won't be able to make any money from it, and right now, the company needs as much money as it can get.
Kate: Oh, certainly, we do. Especially with those missing funds.
André: It wasn't me.
Kate: You've told a lot of lies. Makes me wonder what other secrets you're keeping from Chad and me.
Roman: Well, all I see in this picture is somebody who resembles Stefano.
Steve: Mm, the way he's sitting, maybe.
Kayla: Coloring--his hair, his build...
Marlena: Just wish it weren't so grainy.
Rafe: Shane, come on, really, in no way does this picture convince me that Stefano's alive.
Roman: I agree. A few physical similarities, a love for "la Traviata"... you know, that doesn't prove the guy in the picture is Stefano DiMera.
Shane: I agree, but come on. If there's even the slightest possibility that that is Stefano, and that he's still alive, surely that's worth investigating.
Marlena: In fact, you know, the way Stefano dies and comes back to life over and over... I think Shane has a point.
Rafe: Except for none of the other times did Stefano have stage four colon cancer.
Steve: Meaning, even if he survived hope's shooting...
Marlena: Mm. Cancer's so advanced, it certainly would've killed him by now.
Kayla: Yeah, but it could've been part of his elaborate plan, you know, that he would--he would get treatment and then he would be cured.
Roman: Now that sounds more like Stefano.
Marlena: You think he might be in remission and making his next plan?
Steve: We all know what this means, right? If Stefano really is alive--
Rafe: Then hope didn't commit murder.
Hope: No. I can't risk you going to the warden or the guards-- I'll look weak. Lose respect from the other prisoners.
Shawn: Mom, a woman was murdered. Who cares how you look? I don't want you to be the next one, all right?
Hope: I'm sorry, I--shh! I shouldn't have said anything. I'm sorry.
Shawn: Mom, I cannot just sit back and do nothing.
Hope: That's exactly what you're gonna have to do.
Shawn: No, you can't handle all this on your own.
Hope: Shawn, stop. Just listen to me, okay, I need to get allies, and I need to do it quickly before someone else dies.
Nicole: I know I can say this to you, because... you know me and you've been such a good friend. Holding that baby reminded me of the first time I held Sydney. Looking at that little girl in my arms... I felt exactly the same way. Even though neither one of them were mine.
Brady: No one I know deserves to be a mother more than you.
Nicole: Came close a few times. But between the miscarriages and the false pregnancies, I... wasn't meant to be, I guess. I remember feeling like the whole world was conspiring against me. And every time there was a glimmer of hope, it was ripped away from me.
Brady: I'm sorry.
Nicole: It's okay, I... I got through it. And even though it was so hard to lose those precious babies, I am so grateful that I got to carry them. Even though it was a short time... they were mine. And even today, they're still in my heart. Brady, I've... I've accepted that I can't have a child of my own, that it's not in the cards, which is why I'm so surprised that this one's getting to me. You know, maybe... maybe it is because I helped deliver her. Even because I got to name her. I don't know, I think there's something else, like there's this invisible pull that's making me love her more and more every minute. I'll tell you one thing. When Chloe wakes up and can take care of holly on her own, I'm gonna have a really hard time letting her go.
Brady: Maybe you don't have to.
Rafe: How's your mother doing?
Shawn: Well, she'd be a lot better is she were out of that place.
Rafe: Well, I'm working on it. In fact, that's why I called. Do you think you can meet me at the station in, say, ten minutes?
Shawn: Yeah, sure. Why, what's up?
Rafe: I have a few questions about your part in the investigation of Stefano's death.
Shawn: Yeah, yeah, I'm on my way.
Rafe: Okay, Shawn's gonna meet me at the station.
Steve: Kayla and I want to be there when you tell him.
Kayla: Oh, absolutely.
Marlena: I've got some questions I want to ask, myself.
Roman: All right, the three of you go with Rafe. Shane and I will check with the ISA and see if they've had any more Stefano sightings.
Rafe: Shane. Thank you. Thank you for, uh, bringing this to our attention.
Shane: Yeah, well, for hope's sake, let's just hope it's true.
Sheila: Hey, princess is a little jumpy. Guess you're still shaken up what happened to your little bestie, Chille, huh? Such a tragedy. Mm. Goes to show, you never know what day will be your last.
Hope: I know you and coco killed her.
Sheila: You don't know squat.
Hope: Let me tell you what I know. I know you're not gonna get away with it.
Sheila: Oh, I'm scared. Say what? But by the way, now that Chille is gone, spot for a top dog is up for grabs in here. And if you're smart, you'll bow out gracefully.
Hope: Not a chance.
Sheila: What's your problem, princess? You don't even like playing queen bee. I can tell.
Hope: Someone's got to protect the other women.
Sheila: [Laughs] Even without the badge, you're still in here trying to "catch" the bad guys. But you know what? Continue playing "protect and serve." Whatever. But remember: You been warned.
Nicole: What do you mean I might not have to give up holly? And please don't say it's because you think Chloe won't wake up out of her coma, okay? She--she will and she has to.
Brady: She will--it's not that, it's not that. It's just that... this baby--
Deimos: Am I interrupting?
Brady: No, no, not at all.
Deimos: How're you doing?
Nicole: Well, I'd be better if Chloe was awake.
Deimos: Yeah, well, there's no way for us to know when that's gonna happen, so, you know, maybe you can take a break? You know, why don't you come walk with me, we'll get some fresh air.
Nicole: No, I'm fine here.
Deimos: Well, I'm sure Brady wouldn't mind watching over Chloe and the baby while you're gone.
Brady: No, no, no, it's not a problem.
Nicole: I don't need a break. I'm not leaving. Maybe you should.
Deimos: I'm sor--excuse me?
Nicole: Deimos, I'm sorry. It's just, I... I don't mean to be rude, it's just, I don't think Chloe would appreciate you being in the room with her and the baby.
Deimos: You know what, you're right. I'll go.
Nicole: Really? That's it, no argument?
Deimos: I want Chloe to wake up just as much as you do. And if my being here prevents that...
Nicole: Thank you.
Deimos: Can I at least get you something to eat?
Nicole: No, I'm not hungry.
Deimos: Really? Brady, you want to grab a quick bite?
Brady: Why not?
Nicole: Brady, wait. Before Deimos got here, you were gonna say something about the baby.
Brady: Yeah, um... what I meant was, we don't know how long Chloe's recovery is gonna take, so you might end up having to spend a lot more time with holly then you originally thought.
Nicole: I mean, I--I wouldn't mind. But I do pray that Chloe will wake up from her coma soon. Any extra time with holly... that's something I'll never get tired of. The baby's still okay, isn't she?
Brady: The baby, uh, didn't make it. I'm sorry.
Brady: It's okay.
Nicole: No! [Cries]
Brady: Did you get it? You get a sample of the baby's blood from the lab?
Deimos: No, no, the place was locked up for the night.
Brady: Damn it.
Deimos: You know, honestly, if we got in, we wouldn't know where to look.
Brady: Well then, I guess we're back to getting the sample directly from the baby.
Deimos: Back to the same problem with Nicole not wanting to tear herself away. So looks like we're gonna have to come up with a reason she can't ignore.
André: I swear on my father's name, whatever was stolen from the DiMera coffer... were not confiscated by me.
Kate: I really want to believe that.
André: When you told Chad to give me another chance, because I'd seen the error in my ways, I thought that you believed that, as well.
Kate: I did. I still do. I don't think you are the heartless soldier just out to do bidding for Stefano. I genuinely--I believe that you care. I believe you have real feelings.
André: Now, let's not get carried away.
Kate: But however, in trying to be a better man, I don't think you're immune to a desperate act.
André: Why would I steal from a company that I'm trying to shore back up?
Kate: If not you, who?
André: Well, the thief that stole the microchips. Speaking of which, uncovering their identity is imperative right now.
Kate: I never thought of that.
André: No, no, of course you wouldn't. It was so easy to blame poor, misunderstood André.
Kate: [Sighs] It is. Gonna call my contacts in china, let them know about this development.
André: I would hope so.
Kate: But if I find out that you had anything to do with those missing funds--
André: I did not do it.
Annabelle: Did you get evidence that proves Sheila and coco killed Chille?
Hope: No, but even if I did, using it would be seen as a declaration of war and that's the last thing we need right now.
Annabelle: You really think that they're after you? Because I couldn't take it if something happened to you.
Hope: Nothing's gonna happen to me. Not if I can help it. Can I count on your loyalty?
Annabelle: Tell me whatever you want me to do.
Hope: This is a list of potential inmates we might be able to recruit to our side. This outlines their schedules, okay? Some of them are in the gym right now.
Annabelle: I'll go see if they'll stop lifting long enough to listen.
Hope: All right. Take that one and I'm gonna take this one to Hattie, who's in the kitchen. Let's go. I just want you to know, we can do this. Okay? As long as we stand together, they don't stand a chance.
Shawn: No, no, no, no. There's no way this is even possible.
Marlena: That's what we all thought.
Steve: Shane's ISA contacts are almost positive the person they saw in Prague is Stefano.
Shawn: Look, it can't be him. I was the one who did the initial identification on the body.
Rafe: Yeah, well, that body was in pretty bad shape.
Kayla: And his face wasn't really recognizable, either, right?
Shawn: Yeah, because it was buried under a bunch of rubble after a massive explosion. But the DNA--the DNA was undeniable.
Steve: Wait a minute. Did you keep that sample with you at all times?
Shawn: Yeah, of course I did. [Grunts] Look, I gave it to the lab guys to test. Then they sent me a letter saying that it was, indeed, Stefano, and then I went to Rafe and I told him that we had a positive match.
Kayla: So somebody could've tampered with the samples.
Steve: Or doctor the report.
Marlena: To make it look like it was Stefano when actually it wasn't him buried under the rubble.
Nicole: Hi. Ugh, I hate that she's only getting formula.
Brady: Lots of babies do fine on it. Here's your job--you need to eat some take-out.
Nicole: I'll save it for later.
Deimos: Oh, um, you know, Nicole, I ran into a nurse in the hall, and she said that she needed to get some information on Chloe, on her medical history. Obviously, I don't have a clue, so I told her that you would be out soon and fill her in.
Nicole: Brady, you were married to Chloe once, why don't you tell the nurses what they need to know.
Brady: [Sighs] I was married to her a while ago, Nicole, I mean, I can barely remember what I had for breakfast last week. You know me.
Deimos: Well, um, she made it sound like it was really urgent. She said that it could help the doctors figure out how to bring Chloe out of the coma.
Nicole: Fine. Okay, baby. Brady, will you watch her, please?
Brady: I won't leave her side.
Nicole: Okay. And you, behave yourself, please--if Chloe wakes up, you--
Deimos: I'll be gone. I promise. All right? Come here. Let's do it.
Shawn: So I just got off the phone with McCabe in forensics, he said that I could go down there, I can dig through the archives, but I got to keep it on the dl, because I'm no longer on the force.
Rafe: Well, McCabe's a good guy, he's gonna get you what you need. All right, listen, everyone, we're all in agreement we're gonna keep this from hope, at least for now.
Marlena: I think that's best.
Kayla: Yeah, we don't want to get her hopes up.
Shawn: Yeah, she already has enough to worry about while she's in that house of horror.
Rafe: What're you talking about, what happened?
Shawn: My mom's biggest ally--she was just murdered.
Kayla: Oh, my God.
Rafe: Not Hattie.
Shawn: No, her name was Chille.
Marlena: We've got to get her out of there.
Steve: If we can prove Stefano is really alive, courts will have to release her.
Rafe: You need proof? I know where to get it.
Brady: Nicole could be back any second. Just swab her mouth--
Deimos: All right, I'm--her face is turned away, I'm trying to get a good angle.
Nancy: Brady-- what is he doing here?
Deimos: Nice to see you again, Nancy.
Nancy: I wish I could say the same.
Brady: I'm glad you're here for Chloe.
Nancy: I'm not just here for Chloe, I'm... I'm here to take custody of her baby.
Hope: Hey. I just found Hattie in the kitchen, she helped me recruit some more women. Yeah, okay, so let's, um... what's that?
Annabelle: What is it? What's wrong?
Hope: Death card.
Annabelle: They're sending you another message. They're going to kill you!
Hope: No, no. No one's gonna kill me.
Kayla: I thought Stefano was gone for good. Thank you.
Steve: So did I, baby. But if him being alive will set hope free, I'll be the first to welcome him back.
Marlena: Well, I just spoke with john in Louisiana.
Steve: How's he holding up?
Marlena: Well, you know, although he didn't know his mother well, she betrayed him, he still--he's still very upset by it.
Steve: What'd he say about Stefano?
Marlena: Oh, I think he was in shock at first. I'm not even sure I can believe it, myself.
Kayla: I know what you mean. Just the thought of that monster being alive and setting hope up...
Steve: He'll get his. I'll make damn sure of that.
André: What's going on?
André: What's so bloody urgent?
Rafe: Well, thank you so much for coming. We need to dig up Stefano's body. And the sooner the better.
