Eduardo: Yeah, it's Hernandez, and I'm wondering where the hell you are. Well, get here!
Steve: I don't have a clue where he is. I looked everywhere I could think of, and I came up with nothing.
Joey: Tripp said he was running some errands. He didn't say anything about being out all night.
Steve: And half of the next day.
Kayla: Well, I called the hospital, and he hasn't been admitted.
Steve: Yeah, there's no plane ticket for a Tripp Dalton. And there's no telling about trains and buses, though.
Kayla: We're gonna find him, Steve.
Steve: I blew it. I found a son I didn't know I had. All I wanted to do was get to know him and make him welcome in this family. And then--
Joey: And then you confessed to something you didn't do. You got to tell him the truth, dad. He needs to know that I'm the one who killed Ava.
Ava: My precious baby boy. I honestly think my whole life has been building to this. I can't wait for you to be born. I'm going to love you so much. One thing, though, honey, you need to know. There are people out there who are going to say they love you... when they don't. They just want to get close to you so they can hurt you. Trust your mom on this. She knows. But not to worry. I'll be there to help you. It's so exciting. Once you're born, people are gonna see how much I can love. I'm gonna give you this recording on your 21st birthday. Won't that be something? To know how much I loved you before you were even born?
Deimos: Excellent. [Chuckles] I couldn't be happier.
Victor: Well, look who's smiling. What, you got a hot lead on Nicole?
Deimos: No. But I will find her. That's if the cops don't beat me to it.
Victor: Well, then why the smile?
Deimos: I've decided to focus on titan for now. And if all goes well, we could see the end of one of our biggest rivals.
Kate: [Sighs] Eddie, I can't wait here forever. If we're gonna talk, we're gonna have to be in the same room.
Gabi: Hey, what was-- what was that about? Are you maybe giving my dad another chance? Because that would be great.
Kate: Well, yeah, maybe, but, uh, looks like I might have been stood up.
Eduardo: Whoa. Man, I am running very late, so let me see what you got.
These accidentally fell into my hands. Cool, huh?
Eduardo: U.S. Bearer bonds.
Untraceable, good as cash.
Eduardo: Perfect. It's a clean hundred mil. I can put that to very, very good use. As for you... these look and feel like the real thing. They got perfect numbers. They got perfect letter sequencing. You can get any loan you want over there with these. Those eastern European banks, you know, they're desperate. They'll-- they'll take any American corporate bonds as collateral.
That's what I'm counting on.
Eduardo: Yeah. So here you go. It was good doing business with you. I assume you realize I never want to see you again, so enjoy your very extended vacation.
[Chuckles] I'm on a plane in two hours.
Eduardo: Yeah. Got to say, I'm surprised to see you here.
Eduardo: I was just, uh, picking up a delivery from a colleague. This guy has been holding some really sensitive papers for me for a long time, decade, maybe--two, maybe two. From back when I was sent to the middle east and--
Rafe: Stop. Just stop.
Rafe: I saw everything. [Scoffs] You've got $100 million worth of t-bonds in there. No, just don't make it worse by lying to my face.
Eduardo: I don't know what you think you saw, but come on, man.
Rafe: I recorded everything.
Eduardo: You recorded that?
Eduardo: What the hell are you doing, man? You been following me?
Rafe: No, I'm not following you. For god's sake. [Scoffs] I got a tip that Deimos Kiriakis was gonna be down here, and I was hoping to catch him doing something illegal.
Eduardo: So Deimos must have gotten the word about this. He must have gotten a tip that I was having this meeting, so he used you. Incredible--he used you to set me up.
Rafe: That's what you're going with? That's what you're going with right now? That's your story? You're gonna blame Deimos Kiriakis for this?
Eduardo: What? Hey, man, this is obviously a setup. You know, that man is our enemy, not just mine. Okay, what--hey. This is just business.
Rafe: Uh-huh. Is Dario involved in this?
Rafe: Hmm? Does he know about it?
Eduardo: He knows nothing about this. He knows nothing whatsoever. I need you to do me a solid here, son. You know, I mean... just this once. Just--you just got to look the other way. I mean, we can both erase the last half hour. Maybe we can--we can forget this ever happened, man. You know, hey. We can donate these bonds to charity. Whatever you think. Whatever you think would be best.
Eduardo: You--you got my back, right?
Rafe: Yeah, yeah. [Muttering] "You can always just forget about it, just, like-- why don't you just pretend that it didn't happen?"
Eduardo: Just this one thing, man.
Rafe: Forget about the oath that I took or my integrity... or the fact that I told you not to do anything stupid. I can't. I can't do it.
Eduardo: [Sighs] Well, then I guess you better do your--your duty.
Rafe: Eduardo Hernandez... you have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you can't afford one, one will be appointed for you.
Steve: You listen to me, Joe. This is about your life, your freedom. So you get that idea out of your head. Tripp can never know what really happened with Ava. Are we clear?
Joey: Yeah, I guess.
Kayla: No, no, this is--
Steve: You guess?
Kayla: This is not, "I guess," Joey. This is, "yes, I understand. I will never tell Tripp, ever." Do you got that?
Joey: No! I don't understand.
Steve: Joe, man, listen.
[Knock at door]
Kayla: God, maybe that's him.
Steve: There you are! We were worried sick.
Kayla: Your dad was out half the night looking for you.
Joey: All morning too.
Tripp: Oh, really? 'Cause you care?
Steve: Yeah, we care. You're my son. Now, I know you don't trust me right now. I know it's hard for you to believe that I had a valid reason for doing what I did.
Tripp: Murder my mother? Yeah, kind of hard, "dad."
Kayla: Steve didn't want to do what he did.
Joey: He had no choice.
Steve: Tripp, I understand why you're angry. I know it's gonna take some time to deal with all this. But I want you to know I'm gonna work hard to gain your trust. I want to make things right between us.
Tripp: You all act like it's so important for me to be a part of your precious little family... such loving, caring people. Well, the problem with that is, I know who you really are.
Victor: Hope planted a bug in this house?
Deimos: Yes, she did, some time ago. Thankfully, I knew it from the start, so I was able to turn it to our advantage.
Deimos: I staged a few phone conversations, knowing that she was listening. Then I sent her off to catch me doing something horribly illegal. The only thing is, she won't find me there doing the big bad no-no. It'll be Eduardo Hernandez.
Victor: Oh, really? Boy, would I love to be there to see the look on his face when he finds out he's been set up.
Deimos: Hmm. Priceless, I'm sure.
Dario: Yeah--yeah, I'm on it. Gabi, come on. Let's go.
Gabi: What's going on?
Dario: Dad's been arrested. Come on.
Dario: Come on!
Kate: Go, go, go.
Come on dad!
Tripp: What's the matter? Hmm? Nothing to say? No big promises, love, affection, deep family bonds, huh?
Kayla: I think we're all just a little thrown by all this, that you--you know who we really are--
Steve: What have we lied about?
Tripp: About who my mother really was. You see, I've had a chance to work things out. I sat and watched these over and over.
Steve: What are those?
Tripp: My mother-- talking to me before I was born.
Kayla: Where on earth would you get something like that?
Tripp: My mom's cousin gave them to me. It shows the real Ava Vitali. Surprise--she's not the worst person in the world, totally unstable.
Steve: Tripp, listen to me--
Tripp: No! I don't want to hear any more lies from you or anybody else! My mother was a loving, caring... [Sighs] She had her heart broken! By you, "dad."
Kayla: If she said those things, then--
Tripp: She trusted you the most-- loved you the most. And I'll be damned to make that same mistake.
Steve: Can I just say something? I know--I can see that whatever Ava said, it really meant a lot to you. But I have to warn you: You cannot take it at face value.
Tripp: Oh. 'Cause she was so crazy?
Kayla: She was emotionally unstable. She lived in her own world most of the time.
Steve: And she was cunning. I'm sorry to say this, man, but she was a manipulator.
Joey: He's telling the truth. Okay, I know. She lied to me too.
Steve: Listen, listen. I know that Ava would have loved you in her own way, the best she could. But she wasn't--
Tripp: But she never got that chance. Because you murdered her.
Raines: Great. Nothing like a on-the-spot recording to seal the deal. Feds are gonna love that. Good job, detective. Got to admit, I never thought you had the guts to arrest your own father.
Rafe: I just did my job. Nothing more, nothing less.
Dario: Rafe, hey! Hey! What the hell did you do to our father?
Joey: There's something you need to--
Steve: I need you to take a step back.
Kayla: Let your father handle this, please.
Steve: Listen to me, Tripp. I don't know what's on those DVDs, but I can tell you right now, it's not the truth.
Tripp: A mother loves her baby who's about to be born-- that's a lie? Here. Watch them. Maybe then you'll understand what you took from me.
Steve: Whatever she said, I'm telling you--
Tripp: She talks about how much she loves me! But you don't want to hear that, do you? You don't want to see the real Ava-- happy, dreaming about the future.
Steve: I'm sorry! She was a liar! Tripp... I regret what happened. And I blame myself every day for letting that woman back into our lives. But let me tell you something, and this is the truth: Mother or no mother, you are better off because you never had to meet the real Ava Vitali. You know what the worst part is? I don't think I'm ever gonna get a chance to be your father. She even managed to ruin that.
Kayla: You know, you're wrong about your mother. And your father. Don't throw away your chance to get to know a man who really cares about you. Believe me, they don't come any better than him.
Dario: Let me get this straight. Hope, she goes-- she goes after the other guy. And you-- you are still in hiding, meaning... you--you could have just let him go.
Rafe: No, no, I could not have--no.
Dario: Of course, you could have.
Dario: Rafe, this-- this is our family, all right? You didn't have to do anything. Nobody would have known.
Gabi: Rafe would have known.
Dario: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Gabi: Rafe covered up a crime for me a couple years ago, and I know what that cost him, okay? Not just his job, which, thank God they gave him a break and gave him back to him, but what it-- what it cost him inside.
Dario: Oh, Gabi, please, give me a break, all right?
Gabi: No. No, you couldn't do it, could you?
Dario: Of course he could!
Rafe: No, I couldn't. I mean, it seems like a little thing, doesn't it? I mean... you just look the other way. That's all the law-- it's just a guideline, a suggestion, you know? It's just... [Sighs] Unless, you know, of course, someone I love is in trouble. Then I just--I just throw it away, right? That's all. It's just-- let me tell you, I've done that so many-- so many times. I don't even know who I am anymore. And, Gabi, this isn't about you, okay? It's not, so don't-- if I were to do that one more freaking time... I couldn't. You don't understand, Dario. I get it, okay? I can't... can't explain it to you. Just... just know that I would have-- I would have rather gone to jail myself than have to send dad. But enough's enough. Just...
Gabi: Rafe, is there anything that we can do for him?
Rafe: I wish. No. The bonds are stolen U.S. Government property, and... someone from the federal government will be here tomorrow to rearrest him and... take him to a federal facility in Chicago. But hey, at least we have time to say good-bye.
Gabi: [Crying] Oh, Rafe.
Rafe: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. [Sighs] God.
Eduardo: You know... it would have been a hell of a deal if it would have worked. [Sighs] I'm so sorry.
Dario: No, don't apologize. Mm-mm. This is my fault.
Eduardo: What are you talking about?
Dario: I put too much pressure on you.
Eduardo: Oh, man.
Dario: Yeah. I wanted to get the business rolling, make it a huge success. And, uh... I just-- I expected you would figure out a way to make that happen. I had these--these-- these stupid dreams of being a big-time player. I should just-- I should've just taken it easy, just... just been not so damn greedy.
Eduardo: Hey, hey. You listen to me. You can do anything you put your mind to, Dario. Anything! Now, you got to know, man, from the bottom of my heart, that I am so proud of you. One thing. You look out for your sister. Gabi is not as strong as she pretends to be.
Dario: None of us are.
[Soft dramatic music]
Kayla: Okay, here we go. You sure you want to do this? I could take it back to roman.
Steve: No. I want to do this. If I'm ever gonna have a chance with Tripp, I need to know what kind of lies Ava told him.
Kayla: Got it?
Steve: There we go.
Ava: Hi there, sweetie. Today I'm going to tell you about your father... Steve Johnson. Daddy says I'm a little obsessed with Steve. Or a lot. But that's his problem, not mine. Whatever. It's time you learned about Steve. I loved him. I offered him my heart. We were gonna be married. And he abandoned me. Then I found out I was gonna have you. Now he's not here for either of us. He promised to love me forever. He lied. He is a liar.
Eduardo: Tú sabes, si tuviera una manera de--
Gabi: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. You don't get to give me some flowery Spanish apology. No, no, that does not work anymore. You gave me your word. You promised me that you were done breaking the law. I was out there begging Mami, begging Dario, begging Rafe to forgive you. I trusted in you. You betrayed all of us.
Eduardo: I can't argue, . I have been doing my best.
Gabi: Stealing treasury bonds, that's-- is that you doing your best? No. No, I've seen you. I have seen you playing with Arianna. The funny faces, the silly voices, how she lights up when you walk into the room and how she curls up on your lap when you're reading "buenas noches, luna." That... that's doing your best. [Cries] God. It's all those things that I missed out on my childhood because you were out there doing horrible things. I'm so stupid. I mean, I actually thought that I was gonna relive my childhood watching you with Arianna while she grows up.
Eduardo: Yeah, I know, and now you'll never get that chance. I know. I know. I just--I'm just begging you to forgive me--
Gabi: No, I can't. I'm sorry. I can't do that. I forgave you for leaving us, but... again? I-I don't think I can forgive you for leaving Arianna.
Ava: So it's just you and me, darling. And I want you to know you will always be my one and only. And I will always put you first, no matter what. That's what a mother does. Honey, we are gonna be so happy and perfect.
Steve: That's it. I can't watch any more of that. My God, where did she get that routine?
Kayla: I know. She comes off like, uh, mother of the year.
Steve: Seemed so competent and loving and...
Steve: Calm. God, what-- how am I gonna convince Tripp that she's twisting the truth? How do you discredit a dead woman who leaves a performance like that? Tripp is never gonna forgive me. I'll never be anything to him except the man who killed his mother.
Joey: Hey, man, I really don't think you should leave. Look, I know you're totally pissed off, but... you should hang out for a while. Maybe... maybe give it another shot. Talk to dad again.
Tripp: Not gonna happen.
Joey: Well, at least hang out at the loft for a few days. You know, don't just go and disappear. You never know. You might change your mind.
Tripp: Repeat: Not gonna happen. I'm sorry, Joey. You never did anything. You're just trying to be nice. I've got nothing against you. It's just... I mean, hey, you didn't have anything to do with what happened to my mother. What? Joey, you said you knew my mom. You said she lied to you. But we never--we never really talked about that. Anything you want to tell me?
Eduardo: You came.
Kate: You didn't.
Eduardo: I was detained.
Kate: I'm sorry.
Eduardo: Me too.
Kate: I'm sorry that we waited so long to say how we feel.
Eduardo: [Breathing heavily] I love you.
Kate: I love you.
Eduardo: You're my person. I'm so sorry that I messed it up.
Kate: We messed it up.
All right, it's time. Let's go.
Eduardo: Could I have a minute with my family?
Eduardo: Yeah. Wow, huh?
Eduardo: A man stays. A man is there... for his family, for the people he loves, people who depend on him. I so wanted to be that man. I've been trying for so long to become the kind of person that all of you already are. Damn. I love you.
Rafe: I love you too, Dad.
Gabi: We love you.
Dario: Damn right, pop.
Eduardo: Yeah. Thank you. Thank you so much for, you know, giving me one last chance when I came back. One last chance. I am so sorry that I... I let everybody down.
Gabi: No. You didn't let me down. [Crying]
Eduardo: I got to go.
Gabi: This isn't right. This is so wrong. How could this be happening, Dario? Come on, let's go. Let's go. Dario.
Dario: Deimos did this. Deimos is the one who has to pay.
Victor: Thank you very much. Well, my man down at the station says it's a done deal. Eduardo Hernandez was arrested. And here's the kicker. He was arrested by his son.
Deimos: Rafe? [Laughs] Even sweeter.
Victor: He's going down for possession of stolen U.S. Treasuries and God knows what else. Congratulations.
Deimos: Thank you.
Victor: Mm. Before you go popping off too many buttons boasting about this whole thing, listen up. Going after Dario Hernandez and even Rafe is fair game. But Gabi is the mother of sonny's little girl. And hope is with Rafe now. So Gabi and hope-- off-limits.
Deimos: All right. I hear you.
Victor: You better. You better watch your back. My guess is that Rafe and Dario are gonna be coming after you.
Deimos: I'm not too concerned. I had no problem taking down the father. In fact, I'll enjoy taking down the sons even more. [Chuckles] Mm.
Kayla: We will find a way. We will. And there's enough evidence to prove that Ava was insane, not to mention evil.
Steve: You're right. We'll find a way. We just have to keep at it. Ava already used our Joe to hurt this family. I'll be damned if I let her use my other son. Not gonna happen.
Joey: No, I don't-- [Sighs] I don't want to talk about Ava.
Tripp: Sort of sounds like you agree with your parents.
Joey: Yeah, pretty much. I mean, I didn't know her long, but...
Tripp: But what?
Joey: She lied about everything, man. She was a freak. She kidnapped my mom, almost starved her to death. She bashed her over the head, gave her some big concussion. My mom used to faint. She used to just faint, man, out of the blue. She had to have an operation 'cause her brain was bleeding. Ava was messed up.
Tripp: I hear you, man. But...[Sighs] Just--I'm just saying, put yourself in my shoes. Because the only fact that counts for me is that my father killed my mother. That's reason enough for me to never even talk to him again.
Joey: That would break his heart.
Tripp: Yeah, well, too bad. He earned that when he smothered her to death.
Joey: Tripp, don't go. Tripp, you can't go, okay? [Sighs] Look... you don't know what happened to your mother.
Tripp: What are you talking about?
Joey: You need to know the truth. Stay, okay? And I'll tell you... what really happened.
