[Gentle music]Rafe: Hello, beautiful.
Rafe: Happy new year.
Hope: First Christmas, and now this?
Hope: You spoil me.
Rafe: I know I do, don't I?
Hope: You should be out celebrating.
Rafe: Yeah, right.
Rafe: Except there's nowhere else I'd rather be than here with you.
Hope: You don't happen to have some champagne, huh?
Rafe: Uh, no, I don't. The damn guards, they-- they took it. I have something else though.
Rafe: I have something better. I've got news; I've got great news; I got the best news...
Hope: What? What?
Rafe: That you've ever heard.
Hope: What? What is it?
Rafe: It looks like Stefano DiMera could be alive.
Steve: Well, well, well. Another year on the books. And we're still kicking. What you think about that, sweetness?
Kayla: I think that we did good tonight.
Steve: Yeah, we did.
Kayla: I'm going to call my mom, and wish her a happy new year. Kim too.
Steve: You make sure to tell her her grandson was a superstar working the pub tonight.
Joey: Couldn't have done it without you guys.
Kayla: Well, it was definitely a family effort. Goes for you too, jade.
Steve: Yeah, jade. Whether you like it or not.
Jade: [Laughs] Are you kidding me? I love this. What can I do to help out?
Steve: Oh, hang on a second. We've all been working hard tonight so before we get, uh, dishpan hands, how bout we have a little toast?
Steve: Irish whiskey for the parents. And not so fas--
Steve: For the parents to be, our finest sparkling cider.
Jade: Aw, thank you.
Steve: All right.
May the best part of last year be the worst part of the new year. To family.
All: To family.
Kayla: I love that.
Gabi: You slept with her. You told me that it was a random hookup.
JJ: I--I didn't remember.
Gabi: Oh, you didn't remember having sex with the woman that used to be your old partner?
JJ: No, I was drunk. It was a mistake.
Lani: Or maybe you just conveniently forgot so you didn't have to tell your girlfriend.
JJ: No, I wouldn't do that.
Gabi: I don't even know what the hell you do anymore.
JJ: Gabi, please, I didn't know.
Gabi: No. I don't believe anything that comes out of your mouth, JJ.
JJ: Gabi, please--
Gabi: No, can you please stop? No more lies! Okay, you make me sick.
Chad: I'll check on him.
Abigail: No, um, let me, I-- need to make up for a lot of lost time.
Abigail: I just--I want him to know that I'm not going anywhere ever again.
Chad: Glad to hear that.
Abigail: It's a new year, Chad. You know, I don't know what's gonna happen between the two of us, but whatever it is, we are a family again.
Chad: Kay. I'm gonna, uh, I'm gonna go to bed.
Joey: Whoa, whoa whoa. Be careful.
Jade: Hey, I think I can handle a broom.
Joey: I'm taking you home so you can get some sleep.
Jade: What? No. I can't leave your parents while they're working so hard.
Joey: They'll understand.
Jade: No, wait.
Joey: What is it?
Jade: I don't want this night to end. This is the best new year's eve I've ever had. And contributing to this place that's been with the Bradys for so long, I felt like a part of it.
Joey: You are a part of it.
Jade: Thank you. You know how much that means after what happened with my dad.
Joey: I know how much it hurts. But you're gonna be better off without him in your life. And you have us now. We're not gonna walk away from you. But that means that you're gonna have to let us take care of you.
Jade: Oh, I think I can live with that.
Joey: Good. All you have to worry about is staying healthy for junior in there.
Jade: Oh, I don't think I agreed to "junior."
Joey: Eh, you'll come around. Come on, I'll take you home.
Jade: No. Can't we just stay a little while longer, please?
Steve: Yeah, Joe.
[Blows toy horn] Don't be a party pooper. Jade wants to hang a little while, let her hang.
Joey: She needs to get some sleep.
Steve: [Sighs] Your son has become a rule follower. I blame you.
Kayla: Don't look at me. I--I married you, didn't I?
Jade: [Laughs] Hey, how about this? I sit down at this table and I fold napkins, gently. And then you can take me home.
Jade: Yes. [Laughs]
Abigail: Hey. Happy new year, baby. Hi. Mmm. Do you know how happy I am to be your mommy? We're gonna have a really good life together. You and me and daddy. You know what? He kissed me. Yeah, he kissed me today. And it just felt so right. Just like it always did. I know he felt it too. Mm-hmm. If we hadn't stopped, I-- I don't know what would've happened. But... he didn't say good night. He just said that he was going to bed. Was that an announcement or was that an invitation?
JJ: Gabi. Gabi, stop.
Gabi: Why do I--why should I stop so you can just keep-- keep telling me lies?
JJ: Okay, lan--Lani, I need to speak to Gabi alone.
Lani: I'm a part of this. I'm not going anywhere.
Gabi: Yeah. Yeah, she'll tell me the truth. Did you know he was in Miami?
Lani: No. It was a surprise to see him at the bar, but I could tell he was in a bad way. He had just found out that Abigail died in a plane crash and he was drinking a lot.
JJ: Gabi, we don't have to do this.
Gabi: No, keep going.
Lani: I didn't want to leave him alone in that state, so I sat, I drank with him, and I did my best to comfort him.
Gabi: Comforting? Is that--is that what you call sleeping with somebody else's boyfriend?
Andrew wanted nothing to do with his volcano demonstration.
Joey: Hey, mom?
Joey: Are you sure it's okay for her to be up so late?
Kayla: Sweetie, it's new year's eve. Just celebrate a little bit.
Joey: I just want to make sure we're doing everything right, you know?
Steve: It sure seems like you are.
Joey: Thank you guys for helping me so I can stay in college and for being so supportive and forgiving. And mostly for making jade feel like part of the family.
Steve: Hey, we're not making jade feel anything. She's the mother of your child. She's part of this family now.
Joey: Jade's had such a tough time I can't imagine what it's like to have your own father disown you. She deserves so much better.
Kayla: She's got better, Joey. She has you.
Joey: [Scoffs] I'm trying. I'm really trying.
Kayla: I know. And you know all parents want is for their children to be happy. It's all we want for you.
Steve: Yeah, you'll understand that real soon.
Joey: God, it is soon, isn't it?
Kayla: [Chuckles] You're just realizing that now?
Joey: A human is coming and needs me to take care of it.
Joey: Is it okay to panic?
Steve: Oh, hell yeah. I'd worry about you if you weren't panicked. But you are gonna do fine. And don't forget your mom and I are here for you. Okay? We're always here.
Hope: What? Wait, wait. Shane said-- said what? If the ISA picked up chatter about someone in eastern Europe?
Rafe: It fits Stefano's description perfectly. His face, his accent. There's a guy who loves opera and strega and--and he's working on building a power base as we speak.
Hope: How? How? I mean, how-- how can he be alive? I shot him at point-blank range.
Hope: You helped me move his body to an abandoned building.
Rafe: Okay. But the DNA test does not match the guy who was in the grave.
Hope: The original DNA test proved that it was him.
Rafe: Okay, well, the DiMeras have messed with tests before.
Hope: I don't understand any of this. He didn't die?
Rafe: I don't know. All I know for sure is that Stefano wanted you to go to prison for his murder. But if the phoenix, if this guy has somehow managed to cheat death one more time...
Hope: Then I'm not a murderer.
Lani: You think I wanted this to happen with JJ?
Gabi: I just think that it takes a certain type of person to meet a guy at a bar and then go to his room.
Lani: And what are you, a choir girl?
Gabi: He didn't need comforting, okay? He had a girlfriend.
Lani: Well, he wasn't acting like it that night. I thought maybe you two had broken up.
JJ: You--you're really not helping here.
Lani: I'm not trying to help. At least I was there. Where were you when JJ needed you?
JJ: This is not her fault.
Lani: And it's not mine either. I was drinking that night too, okay? But believe me, I didn't go looking to hook-up. I saw my ex-partner suffering and one thing led to another.
JJ: When I saw the note in the hotel room, it--it didn't have a name or number.
Lani: JJ, why would I write my name? It's not like you don't know me, and we had just slept together.
JJ: I blacked out. It's no excuse, but I'm sorry. I don't remember.
Lani: I guess this is for you two to sort out.
Gabi: I'm going home.
JJ: Gabi, don't go.
[Tense electronic music]
Abigail: You're awake.
Chad: [Clears throat] Yeah. Yeah, I don't, um, I don't sleep very well anymore not since-- not since you left.
Abigail: Chad, I'm-- I'm so sorry, I really am, for everything, I hate that I--
Chad: Can we--can we not do this right now? Did you get Thomas to sleep?
Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, I just rubbed his back and he went right out.
Abigail: It's funny, when I'm in there with him, it just feels like no time has passed at all. Feels so natural but, you know, better because now I know I can comfort him. It's like we're just picking up where we left off.
Chad: I wish it were that easy. [Clears throat]
Abigail: I think it could be. If you wanted to, Chad, we could we could go back to the way things were. I know I want to.
I have asthma...
JJ: Gabi, you are the greatest thing in my life.
Gabi: Okay, then, why'd you screw it up?
JJ: I don't know. I wish I remembered that night. At least then I would have a good explanation. But it feels like-- like another person did this.
Gabi: It wasn't another person, it was you. And you've done it before.
JJ: I would never hurt you.
Gabi: You keep saying that. But you just hurt me. You just hurt me. Okay, it was-- it was bad enough when I thought you slept with some random person, but Lani was your partner. Kay, she meant something to you.
JJ: Not as much as you do. I will make it up to you.
Gabi: I'm sorry, JJ. I mean, it's a little too late for that. I trusted you not to break my heart. That's exactly what you did.
Chad: What are you-- what are you doing in here?
Abigail: I-- thought--the door was open-- I thought--
Chad: Yeah, I know, I leave it open so I can hear Thomas.
Abigail: Oh, I'm--I'm sorry, I'm not trying to pressure you.
Chad: [Scoffs] I--I feel pressure. I feel pressure all the time when I'm around you, every time I look at you--or am in a room with you or--or or you touch more or I see--
Abigail: Look, when we kissed back there, I know you--
Chad: It was a mistake.
Abigail: No. I don't believe that. I know that you felt something.
Chad: Yeah. I felt it. It's complicated, it's more complicated than that. Okay, I warned you, I--I-- I said good-bye. And I had to force myself to do that because holding on to you was killing me.
Abigail: Yeah, but now that I'm back?
Chad: I don't know. I understand nothing has changed for you. You're still holding on to what we had before you left.
Abigail: Okay, I get it, you're so--you're still-- you're angry.
Chad: Yeah. And confused. And exhausted, and I am tired of people--people keeping secrets and making choices that--that constantly turn my life upside-down.
Abigail: Chad, I wish that I could go back and that I could do everything different.
Chad: Come on, I'm not just talking about you. Okay, my father.
Abigail: What about him?
Chad: Well, it turns out that you're not the only person that has come back from the dead.
[Acoustic guitar music plays]
Kayla: Oh, no. [Chuckling] No.
Steve: A-ha-ha. Come on, baby. Come on.
Kayla: [Laughs] You know what? We are not gonna get this place cleaned up if you keep distracting me.
Steve: Mm. Well then I guess it's gonna have to stay dirty. 'Cause I'm not ready to let you go just yet.
Kayla: [Giggles] Oh. Do you think 2017's gonna be a good year?
Steve: Hmm. Let's see, what do I think? Think I'm gonna make you my wife again.
Steve: And I think Adrienne is gonna kick cancer's butt and come back stronger than ever. And Joey and jade are gonna have the most beautiful baby in the history of baby-dom.
A little too late
Steve: And if Stefano's alive, hope's gonna be home with us. And all will be right with the world.
Kayla: Right here in your arms, I feel like it already is.
When I met you darling I knew
Jade: I want to dance.
Joey: Are you sure you can do that?
Jade: Well, I'm not gonna do a full Beyoncé routine, but I think I can manage to hold onto you and sway back and forth.
Joey: In that case.
Be a party of two
Steve: You know, I think those two are gonna make it.
Kayla: Yeah. Yeah, maybe it's silly that I make them sleep in separate rooms.
Steve: Should let them sneak into each other's rooms every once in a while, that'd be fun. Huh?
Joey: What--what? What's wrong?
Jade: I don't know. I don't know, it felt like a bad cramp.
Joey: A cramp? Is--is it a baby cramp?
Jade: I don't know. But I had one before too.
Joey: Mom, mom, jade's having some kind of pain.
Joey: Come here.
Kayla: What kind of pain? Here, can you tell me about it? Is it sharp? Here, here, sit down, sit down.
Jade: Ah, it's right here. And it's sharp and [Exhales] I had one before too.
Joey: Something wrong?
Kayla: Probably not, but we should take her to the hospital just to check it out. Let me--let me text the ob on call, all right?
Steve: I'll bring the car around.
Jade: Joey, I'm scared.
Joey: Hey, everything's gonna be okay. It's gonna be just like before. You're probably dehydrated.
Jade: I don't know. I don't know, it feels different. What if--what if--
Joey: Hey, hey.
Jade: I don't want--
Joey: Hey, everything's gonna be okay.
Jade: No, I don't...
Joey: I promise.
[Tender piano music]
Rafe: I will get you out of here. I'm not gonna sleep till I do.
Hope: Can't let myself believe. Not yet. If it's not true, it...
Rafe: Yeah, I know.
Hope: If Stefano's...
Rafe: I know, I know. It's scary to believe, but I'm telling you, telling you there's a chance that this is real.
Hope: I prayed for a miracle. You never gave up. You never gave up hope.
Rafe: No, I don't--no. I--I'm not--no, I'm not giving up hope. No, I'm not.
Hope: I know.
Rafe: I'm not.
Hope: Thank you. If I didn't take a man's life, do you know it--
Rafe: Yeah, I know. We're gonna get you the hell out of here.
Rafe: You're going home.
Rafe: You are.
Hope: To my kids. To you.
Hope: [Sniffs] [Cries] Oh.
Rafe: What's that?
Hope: Uh, it's nothing.
Rafe: Where'd you get this?
Hope: Um. Hattie, she-- she likes to read fortunes, you know? Rafe, it's just--
Rafe: Don't lie to me. Who gave you this?
Hope: It was left for me.
Rafe: You're in danger. Wow! This toilet paper reminds me of a washcloth!
Hope: I'm a cop in prison. 'Course I'm in danger. I'm in danger every day.
Rafe: Do you know who sent it to you?
Hope: Got a pretty good idea.
Rafe: Shawn said someone killed Chille.
Hope: Yeah. She got in the way of the wrong people.
Rafe: Yeah, and that leaves you unprotected. I can't leave you like this.
Hope: Rafe, please, listen to me, just-- best thing you can do is find Stefano and you bring him back here. Get me exonerated. Get me the hell out of here, would you?
Rafe: I will. I will. I gonna spend every waking moment I have looking for that son of a bitch. And if he's out there, I am gonna find him.
JJ: Tell me what I can do. And I'll do it. You want me to say I'll never look at another woman again? Fine. You're all I need. I'll stop drinking. I'll never have another sip of alcohol.
Gabi: You don't have a drinking problem. Kay, you have a trust problem.
JJ: I'm telling you the truth.
Gabi: No, if--if--if you really trusted me, you would have taken me to Miami with you. Okay, you would not have gone to that bar. But you don't get that. Look, I loved Abigail too. I--I--I needed you. But instead of calling me, you--you got drunk and you chose Lani.
JJ: It was the worst mistake I have ever made in my life.
Gabi: Well, let's not make another one by forcing this.
JJ: I know I can't ask you to forgive me.
Gabi: It's not about forgiveness, JJ. This is about what I want in my life, who I want in my life. I want to be with somebody that is open and honest, somebody that--that trusts me and that I trust.
JJ: Is that someone Chad?
Abigail: Oh, my God.
Chad: Every time I think that we've gotten past his secrets...
Abigail: I mean, is that even possible?
Chad: I don't--I don't know. I know that he had late-stage cancer and he didn't want to tell his family about it. Apparently, he wanted hope to shoot him so he could get her charged with his murder.
Abigail: You gonna go look for him?
Chad: Um. No, I think the-- I think the police can look. I'm--I'm-- I'm done. I'm done with all the manipulations and the... sticking up for people who-- who, you know, feel the need not--not to be honest with me and people who think it's okay to let me think that they're dead without any concern about how it's gonna make me feel.
[Tender piano music]
Gabi: I know you want to make this about Chad. And that would make you less guilty, wouldn't it? But no. No, no blame shifting here. You ruined us, okay? Only you.
JJ: I know. Give me another chance. It can be great between us again. I know it can.
Gabi: I'm sorry, JJ. I can't take that risk again. I can't let you hurt me again.
Abigail: You cannot be comparing what I did to what your father did. When he faked his death, he was trying to hurt people.
Chad: And you might not have been trying to, but that is exactly what you did. Thomas might never remember you walking out on him, but I will. I will always remember that. I will always remember what it felt like to hear that my wife was dead.
Abigail: I was trying to protect you.
Chad: And you can say that as many times as you want, but it's not gonna change the fact that I don't understand why you would do that. I would never have done that to you or Thomas.
Abigail: Look, I mean, you act like I just ran off on some beach to have fun somewhere, but that's not the case--I was suffering. Do you kn--I--I literally-- I gave up my husband. I gave up my son.
Chad: You made the choice. You chose to leave. The person you loved wasn't ripped away from you.
Abigail: Look, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, honestly, I don't know what else you want me to say.
Chad: What can you say? There's nothing for you to say. Look, I wish that I could say everything is going to be okay, but I don't--I--I-- I mean, I wish that I could take you in my arms right now.
Abigail: Do it. Please. I need you.
Chad: I don't--I don't know if what I'm feeling is real.
Abigail: We'll make it real.
[Tender music flourishes]
Joey: Oh, it's okay. My mom went to find the ob on call. They're gonna find out what's going on, okay?
Jade: [Cries] Ow!
Joey: Just-- just squeeze my hand as hard as you can if it hurts. Just break every bone if you have to.
Jade: What's happening to me?
Joey: I don't know.
Jade: The baby?
Joey: I don't know. The website said that all sorts of things could cause cramps at this point in the pregnancy.
Kayla: Okay, guys, Dr. Berg is on her way up and we'll get that ultrasound.
Kayla: Jade. Jade, jade, take it easy. I want you to breathe. Breathe through the pain, okay?
Kayla: All right, I'm gonna get that ultrasound now, all right? Okay.
Jade: I'm bleeding.
Kayla: It's okay. It's all right, stay calm. All right, stay calm.
Joey: Mom, what's happening?
Kayla: Will you please wait outside?
Joey: No, she needs me.
Kayla: Please, it's all right, I'll take care of her. Go on outside. I need you to go, Joey. Thank you. You're okay. Take it easy.
Kayla: Take it easy.
Does it means things didn't go so well with Gabi?
JJ: It's over. You know, I--I thought we had a chance before she saw your phone, but that was the selfie that broke the camel's back.
JJ: You must really hate me because I--I treated you like some meaningless one-night stand.
JJ: At least now I know why you were so nasty to me when you came back into town.
Lani: I probably could have handled that better.
JJ: Please. No. I'm lucky you didn't punch me in the face.
Lani: I do have a pretty good right cross.
JJ: I'll keep that in mind.
Lani: I really did try to make you feel better. When I didn't hear from you, it hurt because I thought that that night meant more than it did.
JJ: I'm really sorry.
Lani: I get it. You're still in love with Gabi. Can we forget that this ever happened?
JJ: You want me to forget something that I never remembered in the first place?
Lani: [Soft laugh] Right. [Laughs] Bad choice of words. How about this? Can we start over? As friends?
JJ: I'd like that. I could really use one right now.
Rafe: 2017 is gonna be your year. Our year. Our year--I'm gonna get you out of this miserable place. I'm gonna get you back where you belong and then I am never letting you go again.
Hope: You better not.
Rafe: I won't.
Hope: I love you.
Rafe: I love you too. And hopefully next time I see you, I'm gonna be bringing you back to Salem, back where you belong, to your family.
Hope: Happy new year, Rafael. Happy new year.
Rafe: Happy new year.
Sheila: Now, get this. I hear hope's out there having a "romantic" new year's eve with her boyfriend.
Coco: Wha-- how did she get a visitor so late?
Sheila: 'Cause they're cops. They all "cozy" with the prison brass.
Coco: Well, that's not fair.
Sheila: No, it's not. [Scoffs] I thought once we eliminated Chille, Hope would be all alone.
Coco: Yeah, but the other inmates think she's some kind of hero for helping the newbie.
Sheila: [Scoffs] We gotta do something to stop it, or she's gonna keep getting more people on her side.
Coco: How do we stop it?
Sheila: We make a move on her. Tonight. [Chuckles]
[Somber piano music]
Rafe: Hey, sis. Hey. I'd say "happy new year," but it looks like that'd be a lost cause.
Gabi: Not a lot of happiness tonight for me.
Rafe: Oh. Well, I just came from the prison.
Gabi: How's hope?
Rafe: It's complicated. You okay?
Gabi: Um. I just told JJ that it's over between us for good.
Rafe: Oh. Oh, well, why is that? I know he loves you.
Gabi: I tried. Rafe, I tried, I really tried, I just can't take it anymore.
Rafe: Yeah. You can't get over the cheating.
Gabi: Yeah, that was-- that was a big part of it.
Rafe: Yeah. What's the other part?
Gabi: Uh. The other part is I-- I think I have feelings for Chad.
Rafe: Yeah. I--I heard that, you know--
Gabi: And before you say anything, Dario already gave me the lecture on why I should stay away from the DiMeras.
Rafe: Well. Chad's different than his brother and father. Does he have feelings for you too?
Gabi: Think he did. That was before he found out that Abigail's alive.
Rafe: What? Wait-wait-what, she's alive? How? How is that even possible?
Gabi: Yeah, it's a long story, and it's been an even longer night. [Sighs]
Rafe: Okay. Wow. So, uh, Chad is-- is back with Abigail then?
Gabi: Rafe, they're married.
Gabi: You know, they have a son together.
Gabi: I mean, how could I ever compete with that?
Rafe: Oh, sis.
Gabi: Come hold me.
Chad: Ahh. [Exhales] [Breathes heavily]
Chad: Okay. I can't--I can't. [Exhales] [Moans] I can't-- I can't. I can't.
Abigail: It's okay. You don't have to be sorry. I don't want you to do anything until we're both ready. 'Cause once we do, that's-- it's forever.
Abigail: Happy new year, Chad. It's gonna be a good year for us.
Abigail: He loves me.
Kayla: I'm sorry. We did everything we could.
Steve: So sorry, Joe.
Joey: I don't understand. Why?
Kayla: Um. When a miscarriage happens, it means that the baby wasn't viable. It wasn't gonna live. I know it doesn't make it any easier.
Joey: How's jade?
Kayla: You can go in there. Kay?
Jade: [Crying] Our baby... our baby is gone. She's gone.
Hope: Please, let Stefano be alive so this nightmare can end.
Coco: Your prayers aren't gonna be answered tonight, bitch!
Sheila: Happy new year.
Hope: [Screams] [Screaming]
