Episode #13028 ~ Chloe & Nicole learn who gets custody of Holly; a furious Nicole breaks up with Deimos; Eduardo & André contact Deimos to set up an exchange; Abigail & JJ work together to find Gabi & Chad, whose lives hang in the balance.
Provided By SuzanneDeimos: Can everyone please just take a breath for a moment? Now, first of all, the Kiriakis family has a lot of enemies, right? Which is to say that any number of them could have attacked Sonny.
Adrienne: Don't give me that bull.
Deimos: And since we have no proof that Sonny was kidnapped-- there's no ransom demands, right, no phone call whatsoever-- well, then I think it's safe to assume that any attack on Sonny had nog to do with these rumors that you're hearing about our technology.
Adrienne: You son of a bitch. I want my son back. I want my son back now!
Paul: Adrienne, Adrienne, this isn't gonna get us anywhere.
Adrienne: No, let go of me, please!
Brady: Calm down.
Adrienne: No, I'm not gonna calm down, not until this callous son of a bitch fixes what he did! Listen, I don't care about you, your business, or your technology. I just want my son back! So you need to make that happen right now!
JJ: Right. And just keep checking the Kiriakis real estate holdings we pulled up together. I know it's a long shot, but my gut tells me Deimos has Gabi and Chad holed up in one of them. Thank you, Lani.
JJ: Hey. What's up with you ignoring my messages? Gabi and Chad have been kidnapped. You need to help me out.
Abigail: JJ, I have no idea where they are. My God, we're talking about my husband and my best friend. I mean, do you honestly think if I knew something that I wouldn't tell you?
Chad: There's got to be a... another way out of here. [Shuddering]
Gabi: Chad... no, okay? There's no other way. We tried. Can you please just hold me?
Duncan: I want to thank all involved for your patience in this matter. I know this is a very emotional situation and that both mothers have a lot riding on my ruling.
Nicole: With all due respect, your honor, that woman is not my baby's mother. She's a surrogate, a baby oven, nothing more.
Justin: Nicole, you've got to pull it together here. Please, not now.
Duncan: Miss walker... I know this is very hard for you, but your continued outbursts--
Nicole: Outbursts? Well, what do you expect? You didn't hear a word I said. Holly is my baby, my biological baby, the child I've been waiting for my entire life, the child that I've been repeatedly denied. So get this straight: No judge, no attorney, no backstabbing bitch of a surrogate is gonna keep my baby from me.
Justin: Your honor, if I may have a word with my client?
Justin: Nicole. You have to rein it in, or you will risk alienating this judge. Don't you get that?
Belle: Your honor, may we proceed?
Duncan: Mr. Kiriakis, miss walker, please, take your seats.
[Soft dramatic music]
I understand how difficult this is, not to mention unusual. After hearing both sides, I've tried to put aside all the accusations and personal baggage and focus on what really matters, which is the welfare of this child. And to that end, I've had to assess the facts and consider which woman would best be able to provide a stable and loving environment for this little girl. I think it's abundantly clear which parent that should be. I am awarding full custody to Chloe lane.
Duncan: Please understand that I did not come to this decision lightly. But after taking into consideration the histories of both women, I felt it would be in Holly's best interest to remain with Chloe lane.
Nicole: I'm sorry. What did she just say? Wait, what's--what's happening?
Duncan: Family services will come in and give the baby to miss lane. Miss walker, I know this is painful. I hope that having some clarity will help you come to terms with this decision, which is based on your past and present criminal record.
Nicole: If you're talking about that man I stabbed, I was trying to save my fiancé.
Duncan: Yes, I read that in the transcript. But a number of years ago, you were charged with kidnapping a baby. And recently, you were involved in bribing this court of law, trying to sway the outcome of this case. This has led me to conclude that you are not fit to be little Holly's parent.
Nicole: No, I had nothing to do with that bribe. What-- this can't be happening. This can't be right. I don't understand what's happening.
Justin: It isn't. It isn't. We are gonna fight this. Nicole, we're gonna fight this. We will fight this.
Chloe: Did we just...
Justin: We're gonna fight this.
Belle: Yes, we just won. Holly's going home with you.
Nicole: No. [Crying] Holly.
Duncan: Ms. Brady, pending some paperwork, your client is free to take the baby home.
Belle: Yes, I'll take care of it and file whatever's necessary. Come on, we should go.
Nicole: No. No! No, you can't take my baby!
Justin: No, no, no, Nicole.
Nicole: No, that is my baby.
Justin: Nicole, Nicole.
Nicole: No! [Sobbing hysterically] That is my baby! [Sobbing]
JJ: Lani and the officers are checking out the Kiriakis/titan real estate holdings, but so far, they've come up empty.
JJ: Are you sure André hasn't said anything at all that might clue us in?
Abigail: No. Gosh, no, he hasn't. I mean, in fact, he's been keeping me very much at arm's length lately, and I-- I know that he cares about me and he just wants to keep Thomas safe, but... I just wish so bad that I could just find out what's going on and then we could get one step ahead of them and then maybe we would be able to find Chad and Gabi.
JJ: You know... I think there might be a way for you to do that.
[Soft dramatic music]
Gabi: [Shudders] Chad, we're never getting out of here, are we?
Chad: Shh. [Shivering] I've t-- I've told you that... you can't think like that, okay? [Shudders] You know what? I bet you price of those, uh, fancy ties that you bought me, the Salem PD are... they're gonna find us right now, okay? They're gonna bust through the door any minute.
Gabi: What if they don't? What if they don't and... what if we die? Chad... if we die in here, I'm glad I'm dying with you.
Adrienne: You can let go. I'm fine. I'm...I'm calm.
Paul: I'm gonna go get you a glass of water.
Brady: You want to sit down?
Adrienne: No, no. Please, don't treat me like an invalid. You really are the monster they say you are, aren't you? Let me tell you something. You don't fix this problem, you are gonna get paid back. And I don't mean by the legal system. I guarantee you, the karma coming your way is gonna be a bitch.
Deimos: Um, all right, you know what? If you're done with your rant, I suggest you go and talk to your nephew JJ. You know, maybe the police can help you locate Chad and Gabi.
Adrienne: And what about my son?
Deimos: Well, unfortunately, um, I don't think there's really anything that I can do to help you with that. But I'll tell you this. I...I believe that Sonny is a very strong young man. So wherever he may be, I'm sure he's taking very good care of himself.
Adrienne: I'm gonna kill you! I'm gonna kill you! I swear to God! I swear to God. I swear to God, I'm gonna kill you!
Nicole: Justin, please, please. That is my baby! She's mine! She's mine and Daniel's. Please let me--
Justin: This is your version of justice? I don't get it!
Duncan: That'll be all, counselor.
Justin: Nicole, I promise you, we will win. We will--we will get her back. Look at me. I promise you, we will get her back. Now, come on. I'll take you home. Let's go.
Nicole: Oh, it's not my home we're going to.
Did you make that?
Andre: Abigail. I'm sorry to keep you waiting.
Abigail: Have you heard anything about Chad and Gabi? I mean anything at all?
Andre: Uh, Abigail, I don't want you worrying sick about this whole situation. Suffice to say that I'm on it.
Abigail: What does that mean?
Andre: It means that Chad would be very upset with me if I revealed anything, any kind of information to you that would put you and Thomas in danger.
Abigail: Andre, this is insane. I need to know.
Andre: Look. There is something I can tell you, but you must promise me you'll keep it between the two of us. Can you do that?
Chloe: I still can't believe that Holly's mine. [Sighs] She is. I carried her. I gave birth to her.
Belle: Hey, you're not getting any argument from me, Chloe.
Chloe: Well, you almost seem disappointed that I got custody of her.
Belle: Disappointed? I'm your lawyer. I'm not disappointed.
Chloe: But there's a part of you that feels like Nicole should have gotten her.
Belle: I repeat: I am your lawyer. And I never would have taken on this case if I didn't think I could win it. And I respect the judge's decision. Yes, that being said, my heart does go out to a woman who doesn't have kids and desperately wants them and basically had her biological child taken away from her.
Chloe: Okay, please, I-I don't need to hear that.
Belle: Fine. Just trying to explain why I don't feel triumphant right now.
Chloe: Well, you know what? I do. And I'm not sad for Nicole. She's made some really bad choices, and she constantly makes bad choices, especially when it comes to men. And I don't think she can be trusted as a parent. And for her horrible boyfriend to bribe the judge like that? I'm so grateful to you for uncovering that.
Belle: Well, even after I found out, I still thought it was a long shot that the judge was gonna rule in your favor, so...
Chloe: I know, because I'm just the surrogate. And I'm sure half the town will have trouble with that.
Belle: Hey, it's not your problem.
Chloe: No, you're right. It's not my problem. You know, I didn't feel like just the surrogate.
Chloe: I carried this precious life inside of me. The thought of having to hand her over to a reckless woman who has made a total mess of her life again, I just... wouldn't have been able to live with myself.
Belle: So are you gonna stay in Salem, or are you going back to Chicago?
Chloe: Uh, I'm not gonna stay in Salem. I mean, the thought of running into Nicole would be... uncomfortable, to put it mildly.
Belle: Well, we just have the paperwork to get through, then, and you can be on your way.
Chloe: Okay. Thank you so much for everything. And I guess once we get everything wrapped up here in Salem, I can finally take my little girl back to be with her brother. Yeah!
Shawn: Wait a second. You won? You got custody of Holly?
Brady: Adrienne, stop.
Adrienne: No! He's a lying son of a bitch!
Deimos: All right, you know what? I've had enough name-calling for one day, thank you. So if you'll excuse me, I do have a business to run.
Deimos: Nicole, hi. Where's Holly?
Nicole: Not with me, obviously. And thanks to you and that incredibly stupid move-- bribing a judge-- she took her away from me!
Deimos: Wait, what?
Nicole: That's right. You ruined any chance I had of getting my baby back!
Deimos: Are you saying that the judge--
Nicole: Gave Chloe custody!
Deimos: How is that possible?
Adrienne: So I'm not the only mother you ripped a child away from today, huh?
Justin: What are you talking about?
Adrienne: Oh, Deimos allegedly had Chad and Gabi kidnapped because of his stupid Orwell project, and now his enemies have retaliated by taking our son!
Justin: Oh, my God. Is this true? Is this true?
Nicole: Bribing judges, kidnapping people? Are you proud of yourself? Is there nothing that you wouldn't stoop to?
Deimos: Nicole, Nicole, I can explain, all right? But I'd really prefer if we did this in private, so why don't we go somewhere--
Adrienne: Oh, Nicole's upset, so now you have a stake in the game! Is that it?
Justin: You're not going anywhere till we get some answers.
Deimos: Look, right now, I'm concerned about Nicole, okay?
Nicole: No, don't be. Because I am done. I am not your concern anymore.
Deimos: All right, just wait a minute, okay? Just let me--
Nicole: Let you what? Let you what? I mean, haven't you done enough damage? Getting custody of Holly was supposed to be a slam dunk for me. She's my daughter, for god's sake, my daughter! And if I ever get the chance-- and I highly doubt it-- to petition the court for custody again, what, you think I want you hanging around me? I don't! So I will be resigning from basic black, effective immediately. And in case I didn't make myself very clear before, I am through with you forever!
Deimos: Nicole. Nicole, wait a minute! Just--
Brady: Stop, stop, stop. There's no point in following her. She's made up her mind. You stay here and fix this mess.
Justin: You're not going anywhere till you help us find our son.
Abigail: So what is your plan to get Chad and Gabi back?
Andre: Well, let's just say I'm about to level the playing field.
Can I speak with you for a second, sir?
Andre: Oh, yes. Would you excuse me? I'll be right back.
JJ: You need to find a way to confiscate André's phone.
JJ: Because then you can take a picture of his call log and texts. From that, we might be able to see who he's been talking to and what his game plan is to get Gabi and Chad back.
[Cell phone ringing]
Abigail: It's for you, obviously. Yeah, I have to run.
Eduardo: Hey. So it's time we contacted Kiriakis and made a trade for Gabi and Chad.
Chad: I'm glad we're... together too. No one's dying today.
Gabi: Optimist. Is that a word?
Chad: I don't know. [Laughs]
Gabi: If we...if we die in here, at least-- at least we've been honest with each other.
Chad: Honest. That's...that's good.
Gabi: And I know... I know that you love Abigail. I know that. But you...
Gabi: I should have... I should have been smarter in high school. I should have held on to you.
Chad: [Shushing] Held on how?
Gabi: Made sure you knew that you were mine. Made sure you knew that we were right-- right for each other.
Gabi: That we were... we were meant for each other. [Gasping] Chad.
Chad: Gabi, Gabi, don't.
Gabi: I just-- why didn't I... why didn't I know?
Chad: Shh. Don't, don't. Gabi, don't.
Gabi: Chad, don't.
JJ: Paul, what-- what happened? What's going on?
Paul: It's Sonny. He got kidnapped.
JJ: What? When did this happen?
Paul: Right after Steve and Kayla's wedding. We were meeting up when some thugs jumped him. Now, I tried to-- I tried to fight them off, but I couldn't.
JJ: Why didn't you come to me then?
Paul: Look, I'm sorry. I wanted to, but... I was afraid to involve the police. But now I really need your help. I just keep thinking about little Ari. And with Gabi missing and now Sonny...
JJ: Damn it! This situation is totally out of control. And if Deimos has Gabi and Chad, which is what I believe...
Paul: Then the Hernandezes or the DiMeras, they took Sonny.
Abigail: I'm pretty sure you're right on both counts. Let's figure out a way to get our loved ones back.
Hey, anything regarding Kiriakis business in front of the owner of a newspaper.
Adrienne: Fine. I'll let him stay here and handle this. Remember what I said about karma? Looks like all your hard work is finally paying off. I hope you're happy.
Justin: Start at the beginning. Tell me everything so we can figure out how to clean up this damn mess.
Brady: Nicole, stop, stop, stop. Stop. Talk to me. Just talk to me.
Nicole: I... [Stammering] I don't even know what to say. I don't-- I don't even know what happened, what went wrong. I... I mean, I finally got the baby that I've always wanted with the man who was the love of my life, and... and no one will let me keep her.
Brady: Hold on. First of all, Deimos should not have interfered. He shouldn't have done that. But, um, the judge's decision, it's not the final word. No, no, there's still a fight, because Justin, he can-- he can appeal. He can appeal the decision.
Nicole: Oh, Brady, that's gonna take months! That is going to take months. And just the thought of not being her mother, of someone else taking care of her... I can barely breathe just thinking about it. You remember what that feels like, don't you? When you... when you learned that Tate was with Kristen? How helpless you felt... knowing that someone else was holding him and kissing him and loving him?
Brady: I remember. Hey, I remember it. I remember, but here's--- here's the deal. I used the pain to help me fight to get him back. Use it.
Nicole: But what if I can't get her back? What if I can never hold Holly again? What then, Brady, huh? You tell me, what then? What happens then? [Crying]
Shawn: So I guess congratulations are in order for--for you and, um, my belle.
Chloe: I'm just so thankful for everything you've done for me.
Belle: You're very welcome. I'm glad it worked out in your favor.
Chloe: Oh, and I've been meaning to ask you guys, are you planning on staying in Salem now that the case is over and your mom's free?
Belle: It's not that I wouldn't want to. I've loved being back. But I still have obligations to DiMera enterprises in Hong Kong, so I need to go back and finish what I started.
Shawn: And I-I can't let her go alone, right?
Chloe: Of course not.
Belle: Don't worry. Salem's our home. I'm fairly certain we'll be back pretty soon.
Chloe: I hope so. I miss you guys. And I really appreciate your support.
Abigail: Andre said that he was gonna level the playing field in order to get Chad and Gabi back. And then he got a phone call from Eduardo, which, you know, led me to believe that that's where Sonny's at.
JJ: Were you able to do what we discussed?
Abigail: I mean, it was tricky, but yes. I took a photo of André's call list.
Paul: Good work. If André was the one who kidnapped Sonny, then we can use that to find his location.
Abigail: I'm sending it to you right now.
JJ: I'll run the numbers to find out who André's been talking to as well as their locations.
Abigail: [Sighs] I'm sure you're worried sick about Sonny.
Paul: I am. [Stammers] Just to think that he's out there all alone.
Abigail: Me too.
Paul: At least Gabi and Chad have each other.
Gabi: I don't... I don't--I don't feel so cold anymore.
Chad: I can't... I can't think. Mind is...fuzzy. I just...
Jennifer: Okay. How's it going?
Drew: Oh, um, still working on implanting the virus. You know, I, uh-- I've gotten past quite a few firewalls already. I'm getting closer.
Jennifer: Okay, that's great. Can I get you something? Can I get you anything to eat?
Drew: No, no, no, I'm good.
[Knock at door]
Jennifer: Come on in. Oh, my goodness. Are you okay? You look pale. Wait, hold on. Stay there. Let me get you some water. What's going on? What's wrong?
Adrienne: It's Sonny. He's being held hostage in retaliation for Deimos kidnapping Chad and Gabi.
Justin: Please, Deimos, tell me the truth and help me find my son.
Deimos: I caught Chad and Gabi in this house red-handed with the Orwell.
Justin: Sonny told me.
Deimos: Okay. Well, then what was I supposed to do, let them walk away? They were breaking and entering, stealing corporate secrets.
Justin: Deimos, couldn't you have put your obsession with Orwell aside, knowing that people's lives were hanging in the balance? Don't you realize that you are escalating this war? It's one thing to do business with GDR, but to double-cross them, especially stealing a device that belonged to them in the first place? You're lucky they didn't stage a home invasion and slaughter all of us in our sleep! You know what you should've done, what you could've done was called the cops and had Chad and Gabi arrested for breaking and entering. That way, you'd still have your property, and Eduardo and André would've gotten a warning shot.
Deimos: All right, you know what? I did what I needed to do, okay? I had to take action. We need the key, Justin, and Eduardo and André, they stole it from us.
Justin: It doesn't justify kidnapping people! Now, you're gonna tell me right now where Gabi and Chad are!
Shawn: Well, it's-- it's been quite a week. Mom is finally free, thank God.
Belle: Hear, hear.
Shawn: And you, the great legal mind, have another little notch on your belt.
Shawn: Well, I, uh, sense that you have some reservations about Chloe's Victory.
Belle: I know. I should be thrilled, right? I helped a friend. And Chloe does have the baby's best interests at heart. But... [Sighs] To be honest, I just didn't think we would win, and now that we have, the thought of depriving Nicole of her biological child-- this is a child she wanted so desperately. I don't know. As a mom, it just makes me feel like I need to go home and take a long hot shower.
Shawn: Hey, you did your job. You did what's best for Holly, right? I mean, you wouldn't have taken the case if it weren't. Chloe's gonna be a good mother, I think.
Belle: I'm sure she will. But what's gonna happen with Nicole?
Nicole: Oh, God, Brady.
Brady: Hey. No, no, no, no. I'm not gonna let you go down this path here, okay? You keep it cool. Hey, look at me. Look at me. Stop, stop. Look at me. Look at me. Justin, he's a fighter. He loves a good fight. I know that about him. And in the meantime, in the meantime, we know that Chloe is not gonna harm Holly in any way, okay? She's gonna be fine. What?
Nicole: Harm her? She's already harmed her, Brady. By keeping her away from her mother, by keeping her away from me! Do you understand what I'm saying?
Brady: I do.
Nicole: God! And one day, I'm telling you, one day... Holly is gonna know just how cruel Chloe was to me, and she is gonna hate her as much as I hate her. And just like you said, Brady, when your little boy was taken away from you by Kristen, it was the pain that motivated you to fight like hell, and that is what is gonna motivate me, because I am telling you, I can feel a fight right now, Brady.
Brady: No, no. Stop, stop.
Nicole: I can feel it. And I am gonna take my little girl away from that crazy bitch one way or another. And when I do, Chloe lane is gonna be so sorry she did this to me and Daniel.
Paul: While JJ's crunching numbers, I'm gonna contact Steve, see if he's heard anything.
Abigail: Okay. [Sighs]
Titan properties. According to these property tax records, there's about 50 places that JJ and--they haven't even checked yet.
[Soft dramatic music]
Chad: I... I remember this documentary where these hikers, they were stranded and... cold, and in order to survive, they had to... take off all their cl-clothes and stay skin to skin so they'd be warm.
Gabi: Chad. Chad, we... we need to do that. We have to do that, okay? [Gasping]
From the first moment you metch
Jennifer: What do you mean, they have Sonny?
Adrienne: That swine, that miserable excuse for a human being, Deimos, he kidnapped Chad and Gabi because someone stole his precious key. And now, in retaliation, his enemies, the GDR corp-- the Hernandezes and, I'm assuming, André-- have kidnapped Sonny.
Jennifer: Oh, my goodness.
Adrienne: And we're responsible, Jenn. As long as we continue to keep their "key" under wraps, it's only gonna get worse. This is bigger than you and I. It--
Jennifer: Drew! Drew! Oh, no, he must have heard us talking. I'm afraid he's gonna give himself up.
Deimos: Till my key is returned, I'm afraid my guests are gonna remain in my custody.
Justin: And what about my son?
Deimos: I have no intention of harming either Chad or Gabi. And when they are returned unharmed, I have no doubt that Sonny will be too.
Justin: You'd better pray you're right.
[Cell phone rings]
Eduardo: We need to meet. It seems we each have something the other one wants.
Brady: Listen to me. Listen to me. Nothing--nothing good is gonna come out of you acting irrationally and impulsively. It's a bad idea. We are going to talk to Justin. We're gonna figure out how to do this conservatively and responsibly. Do you understand me? We will find a way to get her back. I promise you. I promise you.
Paul: Good news.
Abigail: What? What is it?
JJ: Based on your photo of André's phone log, we've traced several of the calls to a cell phone located in a hotel room on the outskirts of town.
Abigail: Oh, my God, that's fantastic. Okay, so maybe that's where they're hiding Sonny.
Paul: Yeah, we're gonna go check it out now.
Abigail: Oh, my God, that's-- just be careful, please. And keep me posted. You guys go find Sonny. I'm gonna go find my husband and Gabi.
Gabi: Are--are you sure? Are you sure this is gonna keep us alive?
Chad: I hope so.
Gabi: Listen. Whatever happens... I just want you to know... I love you.
Chad: I love... you too.
