Nicole: I'm sorry you're not getting any sleep, Nancy.

Nancy: It's okay. It's the baby I feel bad for. She sleeps for one hour, and fusses for two.

Nicole: Well, holly knows me. I delivered her, and I held her all the way to the hospital. I would love to come over and give you a break.

Nancy: No, no, that's okay. You know, she took half a bottle, she's asleep now.

Nicole: But I--I'm sure you'd like to sit with Chloe. All you have to do is call and--

Nancy: I know. I know, Nicole. Thank you so much, but you know what? I have to go now. Bye-bye.

Nicole: Right.

Deimos: Hey.

Nicole: Hi.

Deimos: You going over to see the baby?

Nicole: Uh, Nancy said that holly had a hard time sleeping last night, and she just got her down for a nap, so, no, I guess not. My assistant just called. I'd better find out what she wants.

Deimos: Sure.

[Dramatic music]

Chloe's mother is keeping Nicole away from the baby.

Brady: Are you sure?

Deimos: I just overheard Nicole offer to stay with holly so that Nancy could go visit with Chloe, and Nancy turned her down. Why the hell would she do that?

Brady: Do you still think that Chloe told her that Nicole's the baby's biological mother?

Deimos: You're damn right I do. And this has gone on long enough.

Brady: You're right. You're right.

Deimos: Where you going?

Brady: To pay my ex-mother-in-law a visit.

Kayla: Hi.

Steve: Hey, baby. There you go. Thought you could use that.

Kayla: Thank you. Thank you very much.

Steve: I looked in on jade. She's sleeping. Joe is sleeping in a chair next to her.

Kayla: Yeah. I think he was here all night.

Steve: Just got used to the idea of having a baby. Now there's no baby.

Kayla: Well... whether we wanted this for him or not, it was still his child. Our grandchild.

Steve: [Sighs]

Kayla: Baby.

Rafe: Can't believe this happened to you.

Hope: I'll be all right.

Rafe: Yeah, you'll be all right only 'cause some bitch with a shiv missed your vitals, that's why.

Hope: Hey, hey. Takes more than a homemade knife to get rid of me.

Rafe: You got lucky this time. What about next time? I've got to get you out of here.

Hope: [Sighs]

Marlena: Have you learned anything?

Shane: Yes, I have. I've already spoken to john about it, and I left a message for Steve to call me.

Shawn: Well? What is it? Is it gonna help my mom?

Shane: Well, I should certainly hope so. There's been another Stefano sighting. It seems our old friend is definitely alive and kicking.

Kayla: So how is jade doing?

Joey: She's still sleeping. Cramps are better, but she couldn't stop crying.

Kayla: Well, she's been through a lot.

Steve: So have you, Joe.

Kayla: You know, since she's sleeping, why don't--why don't you let your dad and me take you out of here, get you some breakfast, huh?

Joey: Thanks. I don't want to leave her alone for that long. Is she gonna be okay?

Kayla: Physically, yes. Absolutely. And emotionally, I think it's just--it's just gonna take her a little time.

Joey: Why did this happen?

Kayla: Well, sometimes there are chromosomal abnormalities that don't let the fetus grow. And sometimes a mother's body will see the fertilized egg as a germ and it just--it just rejects it. But you know what, sweetie, first-time pregnancies have miscarriages--it's very common.

Joey: [Sighs] I should have treated her better.

Steve: Joe. Don't go down that road. You didn't make this happen.

Joey: I didn't stop it either.

Kayla: Nobody could.

Joey: You were the one taking care of her. I just stood there. I couldn't do a damn thing.

Marlena: How could Stefano be alive? Look, hope, shot him, and you verified that he was dead.

Shane: Yeah, I know that. Nevertheless, he seems to have made an appearance at a meeting of black market arms dealers in Prague.

Shawn: Okay, well, who says so?

Shane: One of our ISA agents. She's been undercover in that group.

Marlena: I can't believe this. Not again.

Paul: How many times has he done this?

Shawn: You know how they say cats have nine lives? Well, they definitely envy this guy. Is your agent 100% sure?

Shane: Ah, well. Not exactly. She tried to follow him once the meeting broke up, but she lost him.

Shawn: Wait, how good is she?

Shane: She's one of the best. If she wasn't, I wouldn't have called this meeting.

Marlena: So Stefano is alive.

Shane: Looks like.

Marlena: Well then who was it that died that night?

Deimos: Everything all right with your assistant?

Nicole: Yeah, it was nothing important.

Deimos: Took a long time.

Nicole: It wasn't just that. I, uh, I had to pull myself together before I came downstairs. I just really wanted to see holly.

Deimos: I know you did.

Nicole: Nancy seemed frazzled, you know? So maybe I'll just-- I'll call her later and maybe holly will be up, and she'll let me drop by.

Deimos: I really wish I could fix this for you.

Nicole: No one can. And it's happening again.

Deimos: What's that? Baby envy. I mean, I'm jealous that Nancy gets to be alone with her own granddaughter. I mean, why am I doing this to myself?

Deimos: Because you delivered that baby. All right?

Nicole: No.

Deimos: And then you kept her safe, you kept her warm. My God, Nicole, you even named her.

Nicole: But it's not my job to care for her anymore. She's not even mine. I need to go for a walk.

Deimos: [Sighs]

[Door closing]

Deimos: Whatever you're up to, Brady, damn well better work.

Joey: When I saw the ultrasound, and mom showed us the baby, it made it real. Next thing I know, I'm thinking about what it's gonna feel like to hold it for the first time. "It." I never even got a chance to find out if it was a boy or a girl. [Difficult breaths] I made this happen.

Steve: No.

Kayla: What are you-- what are you talking about? You did not.

Joey: I've been thinking about it all night. And I finally put it together. God took my baby away because I killed Ava, and got away with it.

Hope: Hey. I'm a cop doing a bid in prison. There's nothing you can do about that.

Rafe: I told you, Stefano might still be alive. If he is, I find him, I bring him back here-- he's your ticket out of here.

Hope: Rafe, please--

Rafe: Literally.

Hope: You and Justin work on that. Let me handle things here.

Rafe: You do realize that the inmate that was protecting you, she's dead now. It could have just as easily have been you this time. Please, just give me the name of whoever did this to you. I will take care of it from here, okay--

Hope: It was so fast. I didn't get a good look.

Rafe: You... no. Don't give me that. Was it Sheila? Was it Sheila and coco? Hmm? Was it them again? You know I'm not gonna stop. I'm not gonna stop. You might as well just tell me.

Hope: Yeah. Okay? It was them. Rafe, please. Wait. Wait. Rafe, sit down. Please. Sit down. [Sighs] You can't go to the warden. I mean it.

Rafe: Why not?

Hope: You know, if they smell a snitch--

Rafe: What are you gonna do? You're just gonna wait for this to happen again?

Hope: My only option--my best option is to figure out how to face Sheila and coco head on. It's my only option, Rafe.

Shane: So, I'm booked on a flight to London tonight. Got a meeting at ISA headquarters to go over all this in the morning.

Shawn: Okay, so who's gonna go after Stefano?

Shane: I'm sending Steve and Rafe to Prague. They're gonna hook up with the agent that ID'd Stefano.

Paul: Well, should I go as backup?

Shane: Well, you should probably run that by john.

Shawn: You know what? I want to go too.

Shane: No, no, wait, wait, wait--Ciara needs you here, and so does your mom. Look, if anything happened to you in Prague, God knows, it would destroy her.

Shawn: You know what? You're right. I don't like it, but yeah, you make a good point.

Marlena: So, what Stefano did to hope. That was not about avoiding a terrible death due to cancer. That was about creating a getaway.

Shane: Looks that way.

Shawn: That bastard.

Paul: I'm gonna go call dad in Louisiana.

Shane: Yes, of course.

Shawn: I'm gonna call Doug, Julie, and Ciara. God, I can't believe this.

Shane: Marlena, thank you for coming. I wanted you to hear the news from me. Well, I better get to the airport.

Marlena: Well, not so fast. I want your permission to work with Steve and Rafe.

Shane: Absolutely not.

Marlena: I know Stefano better than anybody knows him.

Shane: Oh, you have no argument from me, but you're a civilian. This is way too dangerous for someone who hasn't had any training. Just ask john.

Deimos: So what did you want to see me about today?

Sonny: I was right about Eduardo Hernandez. He's not in the handbag business. And I know what he's really shipping into this country from china.

Deimos: How did you find out?

Sonny: I was at the kids' party at the hospital, and Dario was there, and he gave his sister a real designer handbag as a present. Then he claimed that he gave her this knock-off by mistake. He apologized to her, but made her empty out all the contents of the bag right there in the hospital, took the purse back, and left.

Deimos: Hmm.

Sonny: And he was in this empty room, and I happened to see him tearing the purse open.

Deimos: What was he looking for?

Sonny: I'm not expert, but it looked like a microchip.

Deimos: Hmm. Well, then I guess the real question is what information is on those microchips. Whatever it is, Eduardo has been using titan to smuggle it into the country.

Sonny: So what's next?

Deimos: If we play our cards right, we could use the Hernandez family business to benefit our own.

Brady: So I went to see Chloe. The nurse said that there's no change. I'm sorry.

Nancy: You know what, Brady, she's young, she's strong-- she just has to beat this.

Brady: Yeah. And the cottage that Chloe is renting-- I know where it is. If you need me to pick up anything, I'll gladly do it.

Nancy: Oh, Brady, thank you, but Craig's there taking care of parker. He brings me anything I need.

Brady: Nancy, look, there's-- I just want to help. There's got to be something that I can do for you.

Nancy: Well... there is one thing.

Marlena: Look, I don't have to get john's permission to help go after Stefano.

Shane: This could be very dangerous, if it's him.

Marlena: I can help identify him.

Shane: He doesn't seem to be in disguise.

Marlena: I--I know him. Better than all your ISA agents combined. So whether you like it or not, I'm the best person to help find him. And help free hope. So, will you take my help? Or will you not?

Shane: Well, obviously I'm not gonna talk you out of it.

Marlena: No, you're not.

Shane: I hope I don't regret this.

Rafe: So can you maybe walk me through your plan as to how you're gonna face off with two hardened criminals by yourself with no weapon?

Hope: I don't know yet.

Rafe: Yeah.

[Phone ringing]

Rafe: It's Shane. Hey.

Shane: I, uh, I thought you ought to know: One of our agents has made a tentative id on Stefano.

Rafe: Really?

Shane: She sat across from him at a meeting of black market arms dealers in Prague.

Rafe: I can't believe this.

Hope: What?

Rafe: I have got about 1,000 questions for you.

Shane: Yeah, and I'll answer them just as soon as you're in Prague. I want you to fly out there with Steve and Marlena as soon as possible. Is there a problem?

Rafe: No.

Shane: Right, well, I'm at the police station. Get here as soon as you can and I'll brief you.

Rafe: Okay.

[Phone beeps]

Hope: What? What did Shane say?

Rafe: An ISA agent has a bead on Stefano.

Hope: [Gasps]

Rafe: He's in Prague.

Hope: I can't believe it.

Rafe: He is in Prague. I'm telling you... Shane wants me to fly there as soon as possible and-- and find him, and if I do, I'm telling you, this is the first step in getting you the hell out of here.

Hope: [Sighs]

Steve: I don't think you got off easy. And the universe sure as hell didn't take that baby away as some kind of payback.

Joey: Jade's in the same room Ava was in. You don't think that means something?

Steve: What? No! That's a coincidence.

Kayla: Your dad's right.

Joey: If you two are trying to make me feel better, it's not gonna work.

Steve: Joe--

Joey: I can't forgive myself.

Steve: Listen, we've been through this. You talked about this in therapy. You know that you believed that Ava would not stop until she killed your mom, and me, and everyone you care about--

Joey: Dad. All the therapy in the world isn't gonna get me to see this the way you want me to. What am I supposed to do? Go to college? Get married? Have a couple kids? Forget that I murdered someone?

Steve: What do you want to do?

Joey: What I should-- what I should have done back then: Confess. To murdering Ava.

Steve: No. No. Me. I--I understand your need for wanting to pay for what you did, and I'm proud of you for that, but them sending you to prison? What is that gonna accomplish?

Joey: I don't know. It doesn't matter.

Steve: Joe. How about just focusing on living a good life?

Kayla: A life of helping people.

Joey: Nothing can fix me. No matter where I go, no matter what I do, I'll always carry this burden. I can't keep pretending that I'm okay. Because I'm not. And every good thing I have... anything beautiful... will die.

Kayla: My gosh--

Joey: Because that's my punishment.

Kayla: No, no.

Joey: That's what I deserve.

Kayla: No.

Joey: [Sobs]

Kayla: It's okay.

Marlena: Thank you for understanding, john. I love you too.

[Phone beeps]

Paul: Dad hates this, right?

Marlena: Uh, yes. He hates it. But he knows it's the best way we have--the only hope we have-- of getting hope back.

Paul: Well, he told me to keep looking out for you. And I will.

Marlena: Hmm. He's so proud of you.

Paul: I hope so. Well, I have something to take care of before we leave.

Marlena: Why do I get the feeling it's not about packing a suitcase?

Paul: [Chuckles] Right.

Marlena: Want to tell me about it?

Paul: I don't know if you're the right person.

Marlena: Why not?

Paul: Because will was your grandson. And on new year's eve, I kissed his husband.

Marlena: This is a painful conversation for me, you know.

Paul: I know, and that's why I wasn't sure if I should talk to you. I think Sonny and I both have a problem with being together now that will's gone.

Marlena: Mm.

Paul: I, uh... we just feel like it's-- it's too easy.

Marlena: Will would not want Sonny to spend the rest of his life alone.

Paul: But would will want Sonny to spend his life with me?

Marlena: Oh. What happened with you and will was a mistake. But it does not mean that you're not a good man. You are a good man. And I know you have very genuine feelings for Sonny.

Paul: What are you saying?

Marlena: I guess I'm saying that the two of you will probably end up together. So, that's the way it's meant to be. Don't let anything stop you.

Sonny: So I'm guessing you want Paul to find out what's on those microchips?

Deimos: Why not?

Sonny: Good. I'll fill him in next time I see him.

Deimos: He stayed on this case even after you told him to back off. Clearly has your back.

Sonny: I guess so.

Deimos: Your uncle Victor tells me that you and Paul used to be a couple.

Sonny: Yeah, I mean, it was a long time ago, but yeah.

Deimos: You know, Sonny, you and I, we don't know each other very well yet, but my brother tells me that you're the best of us. And I'm beginning to see that he has a point. You deserve to be happy. And don't let anything or anyone stand in your way of that.

Rafe: Look, Justin, if a sworn statement from an ISA agent that Stefano has been spotted in Europe isn't enough to get hope's case reopened, that's fine. I'll just go there, and I'll drag the old man back here by myself and throw him in front of the judge. That's what I thought. Talk to you soon.

Hope: Told you it wasn't going to be easy.

Rafe: Look--listen: This is Justin being a lawyer, okay? His wheels are turning. He's just figuring out a way that he can wrap his mind around this and make it work to get you out of here.

Hope: Right. But in the meantime, you are on your way to Prague.

Rafe: Yeah. I am.

Hope: Don't get your hopes up, okay?

Rafe: And why not?

Hope: I watched how Stefano operates most of my adult life. If he went to all this trouble to be presumed dead, why would he suddenly allow himself to be spotted now?

Rafe: I don't know. Time's passed and he's gotten overconfident.

Hope: Doubtful.

Rafe: Well, would you-- do you realize this is a huge break for both of us? Huh?

Hope: Wait. Who else is going to Prague with you?

Rafe: Steve. Steve, Marlena, and john's son, Paul.

Hope: Paul? Wait. No, no, no. I don't have a good feeling about this. What if it's a setup? What if he turns the tables on all of you?

Rafe: No, let me tell you something. Stefano is the one who should be worried. This is my chance. I'm gonna take him down once and for all. To do the best

Steve: Okay. Good luck.

[Phone beeps]

Kayla: What did Shane want?

Steve: Doesn't matter. I'm not doing it.

Joey: Dad, what's going on?

Steve: Stefano's been seen alive.

Joey: Where is he?

Steve: Isa agent spotted him in Prague. Then she lost him.

Kayla: So Shane wants you to help track him down?

Steve: Yeah. Along with Rafe and, uh, Marlena's going along too.

Kayla: Couldn't this get hope out of prison?

Steve: Yeah, it could.

Joey: Dad. You have to go. Uncle Bo was your best friend.

Steve: I know that. And there's nothing I wouldn't do for hope. But I've put things like this ahead of my family too many times. I'm not going anywhere.

Joey: Mom will be here.

Steve: You need both of us now.

Joey: Dad, I'll be fine--

Steve: No, Joey. It's a done deal. I'm not leaving my son. Not now.

Nicole: Hi.

Deimos: Hey. How was the walk?

Nicole: Cold. But it felt good. Made me think, and help put things into perspective.

Deimos: What things?

Nicole: That I'm a woman who was never meant to have children no matter how much I want them. But what's important is for Chloe to get better and be a mother to her children.

Deimos: Yeah. Right.

Nicole: I thought about something else.

Deimos: Really?

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Deimos: What's that?

Nicole: How lucky I am to have found you, and that you're in my life.

Deimos: No. I'm the lucky one.

Nancy: Brady, now you're sure you don't mind?

Brady: I don't mind at all. That's why I came over here. That's also why I've always been your favorite son-in-law.

Nancy: [Laughs]

Brady: Go take a shower. It's fine.

Nancy: Feel like I was born in these clothes, and I have spit up all over 'em, and... I won't be long.

Brady: It's okay, I'll just bring this chair around, and I'll--I will watch her. Don't worry about it. Go head.

Nancy: Okay, I'll be right back.

Brady: [Sighs]

[Shower running]

[Suspenseful music]

Okay, sweetheart. It's time we found out if Nicole is really your mommy. Hold still. on such short notice.

Sonny: Yeah, of course. Sounded serious.

Paul: Something's come up. I'll be out of town for a while.

Sonny: Business or personal?

Paul: Kind of both. You have to keep this to yourself.

Sonny: Okay.

Paul: Rafe Hernandez and I are leaving for Europe soon, because Stefano DiMera was sighted in Prague.

Sonny: Get out.

Paul: An ISA agent swears by it.

Sonny: It's a mistake. Hope Brady shot Stefano dead.

Paul: They say that he does this whole "coming back from the dead" number a lot.

Sonny: Well, there's that. Yeah.

Paul: Well, can't let hope sit in prison without at least checking this out.

Sonny: Well, when are you leaving?

Paul: Today. I couldn't-- I couldn't get on the plane without talking to you about what happened new year's eve.

Sonny: People kiss on new year's eve every year. Doesn't have to mean anything.

Paul: Well, it meant something. We both know that.

Sonny: I don't regret it. Can tell you that much. Why don't we save the conversation for the future, when you get back.

Paul: I agree. And, uh, just so you know, I, uh, I don't regret it either.

Kayla: Joey's right. You should go. Hope is family.

Steve: No. I've been missing in action too many times when you needed a dad.

Joey: Dad, I'm not a little kid anymore. I want you to go. I'm not gonna do anything stupid.

Steve: You making me a promise? Kayla? You sure?

Kayla: Yeah. Go. You should go. We'll be okay.

[Dramatic music]

Steve: I love you guys. I'll be in touch.

Rafe: Oh, hey. Hattie. How are you?

Hattie: Well, hi.

Rafe: It's good to see you. You know, thank you, by the way, for being such a great friend to hope, but, uh, I don't think that she should be, uh, taking on these women.

Hope: Rafe--

Hattie: No, no, no, no. No, no, he's right. You listen to him. You don't have the strength anyway to take them on. You know, listen to me. There's a whole lot of dames in that cell block that don't like coco and Sheila so much. You know what? So, uh, what I'll do is I'll just organize 'em. Yeah. Yeah, 'cause they're not so happy about what they did to you.

Rafe: That's great. By the way, that is a great plan. And, uh, thank you so much for that, so... I--I got to get going.

Hope: W-w-wait--where-- where'd you--where'd you go just now?

Rafe: Oh, just now I just wanted to see how long you were gonna be in here. Looks like it's gonna be a few weeks.

Hope: Few weeks?

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Hattie: Hey. Hey, that's great.

Hope: Hattie?

Hattie: Hmm?

Hope: Would you just give us a few minutes by ourselves before he goes?

Hattie: Hmm?

Hope: Please?

Hattie: Yeah. Yeah, sure, honey.

Hope: Thanks.

Hattie: I'll come back to pick up the tray.

Hope: Thank you, Hattie.

Rafe: Thanks. Huh, she's a trip.

Hope: Yeah.

Rafe: But I like her.

Hope: She makes me laugh.

Rafe: Yeah. Okay.

Hope: Did, um... did you do something?

Rafe: About what?

Hope: To keep me here for longer?

Rafe: Well, I might have mentioned to them that I didn't think it was great pr if a member of the police force got knifed a second time. You all right with that?

Hope: Yeah. Yeah. Thank you.

Rafe: I'm gonna find Stefano, and I'm gonna bring him back here, and I'm gonna get you out of here. Heck, next time you see me, I might have him with me.

Hope: Yeah. Hey. Good luck. Be careful.

Rafe: You too. Luck.

[Soft music]

Stay out of harm's way, will you? Okay.

Nancy: Oh. Brady, thank you so much, I--

Brady: Sure.

Nancy: I feel like a new person.

Brady: [Laughs]

Nancy: Oh, and holly's still asleep. Thank goodness.

Brady: Yeah, not a peep out of her. She's a good girl. So, if you're, uh-- if you're good to go, then I'll get going.

Nancy: You know what, Brady? There is just one more thing you could do for me.

Brady: Okay, sure. What is it?

Nancy: Well, there's no hair dryer in the bathroom. I called downstairs, I asked them to bring one, they said they would, but I think they forgot.

Brady: Mm.

Nancy: If I let my hair go natural, I will scare the baby.

Brady: [Chuckles] Um, I'll go. I'll go check.

Nancy: So, holly, he said he was gonna sit right beside you. But, uh, why was he so nervous and so jumpy?

[Dramatic music]

Well. I guess he thinks he knows who your real mommy is. And he's right.

Deimos: I know how hard it was for you to give up on the idea of having a child.

Nicole: Oh.

Deimos: But I want you to know something. I'm here for you, all right? I love you. And I will do anything-- anything that you need.

Nicole: Thank you. And I want you to know something.

Deimos: You don't have to tell me that you love me too.

Nicole: I know I don't. And maybe that's why I want to. I love you. I love you.

Nancy: What am I gonna do?

[Dramatic music]

[Knocking on door]


Brady: The woman at the front desk said they were "short-staffed" today. She apologized.

Nancy: Thank you. Well, I guess I better get my hair dried before it goes a la naturel.

Brady: [Chuckles] I have to get going myself. But, um, bye, you sweet little thing. Sleep well. You let me know if you need anything.

Nancy: Mm-hmm.

Brady: Okay.

[Dramatic music]

Marlena: Okay, john's plane is gassed up and ready for us, so we should leave for the airport.

Shane: Right, I'll be in touch with you from London. So, good luck, everyone.

Steve: We're gonna do this. That old bastard won't even see it coming. Let's go.
