Brady: Hi.

Marlena: Hi.

Brady: Thank you for dropping everything to see me.

Marlena: It sounded fairly urgent.

Brady: Yeah, it is. I have to talk to you.

Marlena: Okay, anytime. You know that.

Brady: But not as a stepson, as a patient.

Marlena: A patient?

Brady: Everything I tell you has to be... covered by doctor/patient confidentiality.

Marlena: Sounds serious.

Brady: Yeah, it is. I've been aiding and abetting a wanted criminal.

[Dramatic music]

Jade: Ow.

Joey: Are you okay?

Jade: Joey, I'm scared. I think I'm getting worse.

Joey: Okay.

Jade: Will you just... stay with me for a little bit until I feel better?

Joey: Um...

Jade: It's fine. If you don't want to, just go.

Joey: No, I didn't say that. Um...

[Knock at door]

Jade: Make whoever it is go away.

Joey: I'll be right back. Oh, hey, mom. What's up?

Kayla: Hi.

Jade: Kayla, it's so nice of you to come check on me.

Kayla: Well, I'm actually here to see Joey. I need to talk to you alone.

Steve: Listen, man, you can't tell anyone about this, all right? Ruin my reputation.

Tripp: The Mr. Macho, Mr. Secret agent is afraid of needles?

Steve: I just can't stand having my blood drawn that's all.

Tripp: Doesn't bother me. Maybe we're not related after all.

Steve: We'll find out soon enough, won't we?

Tripp: You know, this is just so weird.

Steve: I know. Seems like it's kinda out of the blue, huh?

Tripp: That's what's so weird. I spend years trying to track down my birth parents, and then all of a sudden you and your wife just show up.

Steve: Listen... if I had known I had a son out there, I would've been looking for years, too. If it turns out you are my son, I'm glad I found you.

Tripp: How about my mom? Do you think she'll feel the same way?

[Thomas crying]

Chad: Hey, what are you doing? No, no, no, no. It's fine.

Abigail: He's crying.

Chad: No, stay. He does that. It's--you know, he cries in his sleep, he wakes himself up, and then he just settles himself down. He's okay.

[Thomas cooing]

Abigail: I just missed so much time with him. I hate that you know more about him than I do.

Chad: That's not true. Okay? Not anymore.

[Gentle music]

Can I get you anything?

Abigail: I'm fine.

Chad: No, you're not. You were poisoned. You almost died because of me.

Abigail: Chad, stop. No. It's because of Deimos. Okay? He's the one that hooked me and Gabi up to those IVs. It's because of you... that I'm alive.

Chad: Well, Gabi's not out of the woods yet.

Abigail: It's gonna be all right. She has to be.

[Monitors beeping]

Dario: How's she doing?

Um, you should ask her doctor about that.

Dario: I'm asking you. Is her breathing okay?

Let's just say she's not out of the woods yet.

Marlena: Oh, I have a sinking feeling I know what you're about to say.

Brady: You usually do.

Marlena: You're helping Nicole?

Brady: Yeah. I'm in love with her. I'm in love with her which means I have to do everything and anything that I can to help her and her baby.

Marlena: Well, you may or may not be in love with her...

Brady: I am.

Marlena: But that doesn't change the fact that she has defied court order and she has kidnapped a child.

Brady: [Stammers] She took her own daughter back.

Marlena: In the eyes of the court it's kidnapping. And if she keeps that child, she will have to stay on the run. And then that will be the life that you will have to lead, too.

Brady: Well, I've decided, Marlena, and... I want my future to be with her.

Marlena: Tell me this isn't going where I think it's going.

[Dramatic music]

Abigail: Okay, let's go to the hospital.

Chad: What do you mean?

Abigail: No, I'm fine. I think--I think we should go see Gabi. [Sighs]

Chad: I don't-- I don't think that's a good idea.

Abigail: Chad, she's our friend.

Chad: I know, but we--we--

Abigail: Yeah, I know. I know what we discussed, but it doesn't matter anymore, Chad. Everything is different. So whatever boundaries that we set yesterday, that doesn't apply anymore because Deimos, he came after us, he came after her, and so I think that it is really important for us to stand together. And I know I want Gabi to know that we're in her corner. I want her to know that we're both there.

Chad: You are... the most amazing woman...

[Abigail laughs]

Chad: I've ever known.

Abigail: Ugh, very far from it. Far, far from it. But I think Gabi needs us so we should go.

Chad: Are you sure?

Abigail: I am sure. I am sure. It's the right thing to do. So I'm gonna go get some shoes and--[Groans] Let's party!

Jade: I think whatever you have to say to Joey, you can say to me.

Kayla: Well, the fact is, it's not your call, jade.

Jade: Right. Um, I'll just go upstairs then.

Joey: You were kinda hard on her.

Kayla: Well, maybe you haven't noticed, but she doesn't take subtle hints.

Joey: So what's the big deal that you have to talk to me alone? This about dad and Ava's son?

Kayla: Yeah. I think maybe we found your brother.

Steve: I can tell you this: Your mom was determined to find you, but she was given the same bad information I was.

Tripp: That I was dead?

Steve: Yeah.

Tripp: Man, this is a lot to take in. [Clears throat]

Steve: I can imagine.

Tripp: But what about my mom? You never finished telling me about her. Is she still looking for me?

Steve: Tripp, I know this is hard and you got a lot of questions, but I do need to know for sure if you're my son before I tell you anything more about her.

Tripp: 'Cause if you're not my dad, she's not my mom.

Steve: I'm just trying to look out for you.

Tripp: Well, it won't be long now.

Steve: No, it won't.

The analysis of your tests has been delayed.

Steve: Do you know for how long?

I don't, but I can call you? Or dr. Johnson if you'd like.

Steve: That'd be great. Thanks.

Tripp: Well, now what do we do?

Steve: I'll tell you what, come with me. Someone I want you to meet just in case.

[Tripp sighs]

Brady: Look, Marlena, I-- I don't have amnesia, I remember the things that Nicole's done.

Marlena: I'm not talking about her. I'm talking about you. We both know that Nicole has made some very bad decisions and now you're telling me that you think you may be involved in some-- some illegal activity?

Brady: What can I say? I think she's doing the right thing and... I love her. I love her.

Marlena: So you've said. You love her... and you think you're doing the right thing. Do you feel that way because you wanna make the life for her that Daniel wanted to make?

Dario: Rafe was here, he had to get back to work.

Eduardo: Hey.

Dario: Hey.

Eduardo: Any change?

Dario: No. Did you talk to her doctor? I just saw her respiratory therapist, and I swear she-- I think she's worried about her.

Eduardo: Well, so's her doctor. I mean, she's stable, but she's-- she's not improving. Gabi. Gabi. If her breathing doesn't improve, they may have to intubate.

Dario: Dad, that's not good. I had a buddy in L.A. That they had to put in one of those automatic breathing tubes, all right, once they did that, he was never able to breathe on his own again.

Eduardo: Yeah, but it doesn't always go that way.

Dario: No, but it could. Okay? I wanna tear Deimos Kiriakis from limb to limb.

Eduardo: Okay, we don't have any proof yet that he's actually behind this.

Dario: Are you kidding me? Everybody knows it was Deimos. It was Deimos who took Chad and Gabi and stuck them in that meat locker and now he's walking around like a free man. Now if the cops aren't gonna do anything about it, I am.

Eduardo: Okay, I feel you. I feel you, but please, we can't afford to do anything until we have dead man proof. He wants you to go after him. He wants you to retaliate in anger. He's counting on it. We cannot afford to keep mindlessly escalating this war. We need to be smart and win it. Permanently.

Dario: Fine, I won't do anything.

Eduardo: All right.

Dario: But if anything happens to Gabi--

Eduardo: Okay, trust me. We will respond.

[Dramatic music]

Joey: So you actually found him?

Kayla: Well, we're not sure exactly, but there's a strong possibility he is your dad's son. They went to the hospital just now to do a paternity test.

Joey: So soon you'll know if he's really dad's son.

Kayla: Yeah.

Joey: And Ava's. Does he know she's dead?

Kayla: Your dad decided that he wouldn't tell Tripp everything until we're sure. And even then I-I don't know if he should know everything. I just--

Joey: That I killed her?

[Knock at door]

Joey: I'll get it. Uh, you must be Tripp.

Tripp: And you might be my brother.

Brady: You know, I was in Nicole's life a long time before she even met Daniel. I was always there for her and vice versa. It just took me a long time to see it.

Marlena: You know I believe in love. This is not going to work. Nicole is going to be caught and she will lose the baby and she will go to jail.

Brady: No no. It's "if" she gets caught and I plan to do everything I can to prevent that from happening.

Marlena: Oh, you've got this all figured out.

Brady: I'm--just about. Yeah.

Marlena: I see. Why did you call me?

Brady: Be-- I mean, I-I--

Marlena: I know why you called me. Because you know as well as I do this is a dead end street. It's going nowhere. And then what about Tate?

[Dramatic music]

Abigail: How's Gabi?

Dario: She's unconscious in a hospital bed... because of you.

Abigail: Dario, don't do that.

Dario: Don't what? Don't tell the truth? Because you keep dragging my sister into every mess that you create.

Chad: Last night I was under the impression--

Dario: I know, last night I was so relieved that no one had died that I didn't even get to process what had actually happened or why, but now--

Chad: And now you're-- now you're blaming me?

Dario: You know, you and your family can make all the enemies you want, but you should really start thinking about your loved ones.

Abigail: Okay, this is supposed to be about Gabi.

Chad: I apologize that you're angry--

Dario: That's great! That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but the truth of the matter is-- is that if you hadn't decided to go all DiMera, Deimos wouldn't have decided to go after your wife and my sister. And I think we both know why he did what he did. Why he took both of them.

Abigail: Can we please just focus on Gabi?

Dario: You wanna focus on Gabi? Okay. Gabi's not getting any better. Her breathing is labored and getting worse and the doctors can't figure out why. It's like she--she's not even trying.

Abigail: [Sighs] Are you okay?

Chad: Yeah.

Abigail: Okay. I should go check on him.

Chad: You okay?

Abigail: Yeah.

[Monitors beeping]

Abigail: Wait, wait.

Marlena: Brady, this is so, so sad. And I ache for Nicole. But you've got to think of Tate. And it's for his sake you have to give this up.

Brady: Can't do it. I told you I love her. I love her. You and dad, you always told me that when you're in love, being in love meant that you had to accept some sacrifices. You always told me that.

Marlena: Why does Tate have to make the sacrifice? You're making the decision for him because he is too young to make it for himself. Brady... does Nicole love you? And if she doesn't-- I mean, are you making the sacrifice for no reason at all?

Brady: I guess that's a chance that I'm gonna have to take.

[Dramatic music]

Eduardo: I wanna thank you for saving my daughter's life.

Chad: Um, Dario thinks that it's my fault that she's in here.

Eduardo: Yeah, well, Dario needs to be angry right now. It's easier than facing the possibilities. We're just very worried about Gabi.

Chad: Yeah, Abigail and I are too. We were hoping that there would be some good news.

Eduardo: There's nothing yet. Just have to wait.

Chad: This was Deimos. I can't prove it, but I know it.

Eduardo: Yeah, yeah. We're in the same position regarding that man. I will move on him eventually, but I don't just want revenge. No, I wanna make sure that he is broken. I wanna see him in pieces. Powerless. But to do that, I need proof.

Chad: I'll get you the proof.

Eduardo: That's good. I'm glad we're on the same page. She's not breathing well. Talking about putting her on a machine. You know, the thing is with that... [Sighs] You do that, it's not clear that you can ever regain the strength to breathe on your own again, so, that's uh... [Sighs] That's where we stand. If you'll excuse me I gotta go talk to her doctor.

Chad: Mm-hmm.

[Somber music]

Abigail: Dario, hey, wait. [Sighs]

Dario: I'm sorry. I'm sorry that-- that I went off on Chad in front of you like that.

Abigail: It's okay. I understand how you feel. Hey, and so does he, but... you weren't there. I mean, he saved Gabi's life. Really. So you need to be directing all of this anger at Deimos.

Dario: Trust me, I will make sure that Deimos pays for what he did, but what about what Chad did?

Abigail: I know. I know that he provoked Deimos and I thought that it was a bad idea, too, but I--

Dario: I'm not talking about Chad and Deimos. I'm talking about him... and you and Gabi.

Abigail: Okay. I know that Chad and Gabi got close, but you need to blame me for that because I'm the one that let them think that I was dead.

Dario: And he made Gabi his primary grief counselor. He made sure she knew how lost and alone he was. How he's a single father now.

Abigail: No, it-- it's not like that.

Dario: I-I was there. You weren't. Let's go back to when you did come back, okay? Chad... Chad didn't want to let Gabi go. He didn't want to let go of all that love and understanding. He wanted to keep Gabi on a string. That jerk has two women in love with him and he doesn't deserve either one of them.

Abigail: Dario, it's not even that--it's not that simple.

Dario: I'll tell you what's simple. He has a wife. A wife who is beautiful... and sweet and smart. Who deserves a husband who would treat her like that. You deserve someone who loves you and only you like-- like I do.

[Dramatic music]

Kayla: Well, the nurse was right the lab isn't gonna have the results for a while. We're backed up.

[Steve groans]

Tripp: Well, that's just great.

Kayla: Well, there's nothing we can do about it.

Tripp: So, you knew my mother, right? I mean--I mean, the person that might be my mom?

Kayla: Yeah. Yeah, I knew her.

Tripp: I know y'all don't wanna talk about her, do you at least know where she is now?

Steve: Tripp, you know, I mean, we talked about this and, you know, we gotta get that DNA test first. Right?

Jade: You must be the new brother. I'm jade, Joey's...roommate.

Tripp: I'm Tripp... possibly a new brother.

Joey: We're uh... we're waiting to hear back.

Jade: Tripp, cool name.

Tripp: So is jade.

Joey: Jade, uh, you know, this is kind of a... family thing.

Jade: And I'm in the way, right? Don't worry, I just came down to get my tablet.

[Dramatic music]

Talk amongst yourselves.

Kayla: Jade hasn't really been feeling well. She's recovering from surgery.

Tripp: You got one good-looking roommate, dude.

Kayla: You know, I was wondering, uh, how did your adoptive parents feel about you looking for your birth parents? I mean, you haven't said anything about them.

Tripp: Not much to say. My mom died when I was really young.

Kayla: I'm sorry. And your dad?

Tripp: I don't know where the hell he is and I don't really care.

Steve: He left?

Tripp: I did. I got tired of him using me as his punching bag, so I split. But to cut him some slack, I'm pretty sure he never really wanted a kid. Adopting me was my mom's idea.

Steve: How long have you been on your own?

Tripp: I don't know, five, six years. Look, I'm not real good at talking about myself, okay? So cool place, dude. What's the rent for a joint like this?

Joey: I, uh--I don't know. My folks pay for it.

Tripp: Wow. Isa agent dad, doctor mom. They pay your rent. Looks like you won the parent sweepstakes. [Laughs] Maybe I can get in on that act, huh?

Chad: You know, the, uh... the cubs called. Apparently they're looking to scout you after hearing about that catch. Hammer Hernandez with the one-hander. Abigail said that she thinks that you and I have a-- a connection. I think she's right. We always have. We've... always just... "got" each other. You know, ever since high school. This proves it. You understood exactly what I was doing and that I wasn't... choosing Abigail. And I knew I could count on you to catch that vile. I knew it in my heart. I mean, if my pitching coach couldn't catch that, then, I mean, who the hell could? You've always known my mind. My heart. So I know you know that I-- I need you to pull through this. You have way too much to live for. Your family... Ariana... me. I can't lose you, Gabi. I won't.

[Monitor beeping]

[Somber music]

Abigail: You're in love with me? But I thought you were seeing someone. I was teaching you the dance moves so you could impress her. Unless there never was anyone, was there?

Dario: Uh... that's-- that's not one of my proudest moments, but... things were just going that way and I just went with it. Look, I shouldn't have ever lied, okay? But if I'm gonna lay it all out there, I have to admit that I have been... attracted to you ever since you came back to town and I found you in that alley.

Abigail: [Exhales sharply] Dario, you have been... such a good friend to me and-- but I'm married and... I love Chad.

Dario: I know. I know. Just like I know he doesn't deserve you.

Abigail: I can't let you talk about him like that.

Dario: You don't wanna hear the truth.

[Abigail exhales sharply] You love Chad, but he only loves you with half a heart and that is not fair.

[Dramatic music]

He doesn't deserve you. And you don't deserve to be stuck with him.

Steve: Hey, Tripp, you know, my old man was a real nightmare, too. Me and my sister, we got really screwed up because of him. But you know what? Now my sister, she's got about 3,000 people who love her, she's got an ex-husband, and a fiancÚ who both wanna marry her, she's got four great boys. I've got Kayla, Stephanie, Joe. I never believed I could be this happy. You know what I'm saying? There's a pretty smart guy who once said, um, "it gets better."

Tripp: I guess I'll have to wait and see.

[Cell phone ringing]

Kayla: Dr. Johnson.

Hi, the test results are in.

[Dramatic music]

Victor: Going somewhere?

Brady: I wanted to say goodbye to you. I'm going on A... vacation with Tate. An extended vacation.

Victor: With Nicole walker as your tour guide.

Brady: We're going to live together. My own little spin on "the Brady bunch."

Victor: God you're so sweet and so stupid.

Brady: I will miss you. We could Skype. That way you can belittle me online.

Victor: Not gonna end well. You know that.

Brady: I know you've never had a lot of faith in me, granddad, but this is gonna work. I have to do everything I possibly can to make sure that Nicole keeps Daniel's child.

Victor: When are you gonna stop trying to save lost causes? Start saving yourself.

[Monitors beeping]

Dario: Why isn't she getting better?

Eduardo: The doctors are doing all they can. It's up to her.

[Somber music]

Chad: Hey. Are you okay?

Abigail: Yeah, I'm fine.

Chad: Yeah? How'd it go with Dario? Did you get through to him?

Abigail: I hope so. Did you hear anything new about Gabi?

Chad: No, um... they may have to start an intubation if her breathing doesn't improve. Um... I went in and... it's hard to see her this way.

Abigail: Yeah, I know.

Eduardo: Hey, can you get Gabi's doctor down here? Please? Right away.

Chad: Hey, hey, is everything okay?

[Dramatic music]

Kayla: [Sighs] The results are positive. Tripp's your son.

Steve: I'm--I'm really happy about this. I hope you are too.

Tripp: Yeah. Yeah.


Jade: Ow! [Groans]

Kayla and Joey: Jade!

Kayla: Jade.

Joey: Hey, are you okay? What happened?

Kayla: Jade, are you all right? Jade, take it easy. Take it easy. Take it easy.

Brady: I know how you feel about Nicole.

Victor: It's how I feel about you that matters. Regardless of what you think I-- I do want you to be happy.

Brady: I think we will be. Do me a big favor, will you say good-bye to Maggie for me, please? And, uh... tell her I love her?

[Somber music]

Victor: Brady, if you need anything--anything at all...

Brady: I know. [Sniffles] I know. I do love you. You know that?

Victor: Yeah, I know.

[Monitors beeping]

Gabi: Is Cha-- is Chad here? I thought I heard his voice.

Dario: No. It's just me.

Gabi: No, no, he said-- he said, um...

Dario: Gabi, Gabi, you need to... forget about Chad. He's with Abigail. He's with his family and you are with yours. Where you belong.

Eduardo: I don't know what changed, but something-- something brought her back. She's fighting again. Her breathing is a lot better. I don't think they're gonna have to put her on that damned machine.

Chad: Thank god. Oh...thank God.
