Dario: Abigail, it's me.
Dario: I'm sorry to bother you at work.
Abigail: Oh, no. It's not a problem. What's going on?
Dario: What time do you get off?
Abigail: Uh, you know, I'm not sure. I kinda got a pile of work here. Okay, how long is that gonna take? Keep me posted. Thank you.
JJ: Officer mangos, my uncle, Steve Johnson, gave me your number. Yes, Johnson. You worked with him when he was with the ISA.
Eli: Damn. Well, can this process be expedited? This situation is-- got it. Thanks.
Lani: From your end of the conversation, my guess is we're stuck.
Eli: I spoke to my guys in D.C., But until can clear me with the Greek authorities, yeah, we're more or less grounded. Hopefully, by the time it's done, Sonny'll have had time to meet with his dad's friend.
Lani: A court of appeal's judge.
Eli: Whatever will cut through the red tape. Then we'll have official jurisdiction to arrest and extradite Deimos quickly. If we can catch him doing something illegal. You okay?
Lani: Yeah, I just, um-- I need some water.
JJ: Any luck on your end?
Eli: Our hands are tied until we hear back from Interpol. You?
JJ: Without clearance of our existing warrants, Lani and I are stuck, too. So it's in the hands of the Greek police for now.
Eli: Yeah, and who knows whose pockets those are in. They could be either Xander or Deimos. Until then...
JJ: Here we are. At least being stuck on a tarmac will keep Gabi out of trouble.
Eli: I still can't believe she snuck on this plane.
Lani: Guys... guess who's gone?
Sonny: So you really think we're being followed?
Paul: Yeah, I couldn't get a good look through the crowds, but definitely. Someone is on our tail.
Sonny: [Groans] You've gotta be kidding me.
Xander: [Sighs] Welcome to Greece, uncle.
Deimos: What are you doing here? Who's with holly and Nicole? What happened to you?
Xander: So many questions all with the same answer. You see, there's been a little hiccup in your cunning plan. You know, the one where you ride in on your great, white steed and save the damsel in distress from big, bad me?
Deimos: All right, all right. What kind of hiccup?
Xander: Guess who showed up on my doorstep?
Xander: Nicole's ex-lover, Eric Brady.
Xander: He's beaten you to the punch, my man. He's here to save the day.
Eric: Nicole, I understand you hate me... and that's fine, but I made a promise to Brady that I would do whatever it takes to get you and holly out of here. So, you gotta work with me. Can you do that?
Nicole: I-I just don't-- I don't know what to do. Xander has this place on lock down. We don't have any weapons.
Eric: We just need to find something lethal. I think I know just the thing.
Sonny: What the hell are you doing here?
Gabi: What? Did you think I was gonna stay on the plane while you were out there looking for Deimos?
Paul: You shouldn't have been on that plane in the first place, Gabi.
Gabi: Which is why I to stow away.
Sonny: This is dangerous, Gabi.
Sonny: You need to be thinking about Ariana.
Gabi: No, do not bring our daughter into this.
Sonny: How could I not? What if something happens to you? Deimos already tortured you more than once. He doesn't care if you're alive or if you're dead.
Gabi: I think I've--
Sonny: Ariana already lost one of her parents, I will not let her lose another one. Do you understand me?
Gabi: Sonny, I have proven that I'm survivor.
Paul: Okay, look, look. Arguing about this is not gonna help anything.
Gabi: I appreciate your concern. I understand what you're saying, but the sooner you understand that I'm going with you, the sooner we can get moving. Actually, we should get moving right now. We should-- Chad.
Chad: Gabi. What are you guys doing here?
Abigail: Hey, I hope you weren't waiting too long. Sorry, there was a-- there was an emergency at the station.
Dario: Oh, well, that comes first.
Abigail: Jeez, you seem even more worried now than on the phone.
Dario: You know, I shouldn't have called you. This--this isn't your problem.
Abigail: Dario, come on. We're friends. If something's upsetting you, I wanna know what it is. I mean, maybe I can help.
Dario: No. Not with this. No one can.
Abigail: Will you please just tell me what's going on?
Dario: All right, I- I don't know how else to say this, so here it is. I'm being deported.
Chad: Please don't tell me you guys are following me here.
Sonny: We're after Deimos, actually.
Chad: He's in Greece?
Paul: We believe so.
Sonny: Xander kidnapped Nicole, brought her here and the baby. Deimos has been desperate to get her back ever since she left Salem with Brady.
Paul: And sonny believes that if Deimos finds her first, he's gonna kidnap her and the baby and take 'em to god only knows where.
Sonny: Somewhere totally untraceable.
Chad: So then how do you plan to find him?
Paul: Eli, JJ, and Lani are all in on this, too. Connecting with Interpol and the Greek police.
Chad: Unbelievable. So if he slips up? What then?
Sonny: I have a meeting with the judge that my dad set up. Fortunately, Deimos' reputation precedes him and this judge hates his guts. So I wanna use him to cut through some of the red tape so we can bring Deimos back to Salem.
Paul: With his next stop prison.
Chad: How about you? You just came along for the ride?
Sonny: No, she actually stowed away in the airplane.
Gabi: Look, after everything that he's done to you, to me, to Abby, to my father, I mean, I have a stake in this, too.
Sonny: But we think it'd be safer if you went back to the airplane. At least for now.
Gabi: Yeah, well, I'm not gonna let that happen.
Deimos: All right, if Eric has crashed our little rescue party, maybe you shouldn't be here complaining about it, maybe you should be there taking him out. Isn't that what you tried to do the first time?
Xander: Yes. But murdering someone on Greek soil... how do I know you wouldn't turn on me? You keep saying you're gonna bust in and "save the day," but to make that seem legit, you might need cops. Big, Greek cops that will haul me off to jail. And then what's to stop you from just trotting off into the sunset while I rot in one of those charming island prisons?
Deimos: Do you really think that I would screw you like that?
Xander: [Scoffs] To get out of our deal? The thought had crossed my mind. I need assurances, Deimos, that I'm going to get out of this alive and be well taken care of.
Deimos: And what kind of assurances are we talking about?
Xander: Just keeping you honest. You made a lot of promises to me on that pier in Salem all those months ago. Before you lied to the rest of the world that I was dead and had me disappear. What was it you said? Something like... "I always take care of family and you, Xander cook Kiriakis, are family."
Deimos: Yeah, that's right. And I meant every single word of it.
Xander: Great to hear it. These are my demands.
Deimos: Helicopter, pilot... $20 million cash... untraceable. Two escorts?
Xander: Female escorts. Where I'm going I'll need company and you wouldn't want me to get lonely, would you?
Deimos: Xander, I don't know if I have time to get this--
Xander: Just take care of it, Deimos. You wouldn't want anybody to think that we're in cahoots, would you? That you and I have been working together all this time to set you up to be the hero? You let me know when every little thing on my list is taken care of. I'll be waiting.
Eric: I learned how to do this in prison. It's the most common handmade shiv.
Nicole: The only thing I learned how to do in prison was macramé potholders.
Eric: Hopefully, this'll do the job.
Nicole: Yeah, but it could also get us killed. I mean, how are we gonna take on all of Xander's men? We need to rethink this.
Eric: Nicole, you let me worry about those goons. Stop wasting time.
Nicole: Okay, but what about holly?
Eric: The pilot knows to get her outta here and back to Salem to be safe if we don't get back before the deadline.
Nicole: Yeah, well, she does. She needs to be safe. You make sure of that.
Eric: Listen, you need to get safe. So stop wasting time 'cause here's what we're gonna do.
Abigail: You're being deported?
Dario: That's what the papers say and I've spoken to my lawyer, they're ironclad.
Abigail: But I thought that the Hernandez kids were all citizens.
Dario: Yeah, everyone except me.
Abigail: I don't understand that, though.
Dario: Okay, um... my mother was visiting her sister Estrella in Mexico when I was born and since she wasn't an American citizen at the time, all bets were off on me.
Abigail: Okay, so then, um, what happened when you-- when she came back to the states?
Dario: Well, she thought she had taken care of the papers, but whatever she did, I guess wasn't enough. She wasn't given the proper instructions maybe.
Abigail: I don't understand why this is all happening now.
Dario: Okay, well, my dad got arrested and the feds looked into anything having to do with GDR corp and... this came up as a technicality.
Abigail: That is so unfair. This is your home. This is where you live. This is where you work. This is where your family is, your friends are--
Dario: This is where you are.
Abigail: Yeah, I mean, but-- that's what I mean. Your friends and your entire life is here. There's gotta be something that you can do. There's got--hmm.
Dario: No. No, according to my lawyer, they got me dead to rights, so...I'm outta here. You know how strict they are on immigration these days.
Abigail: I just can't believe this.
Dario: I mean, the only option would be...to... marry an American citizen. And even that's not 100%.
Abigail: No? Why not?
Dario: Well... they've gotten a lot stricter these days since everybody's trying to beat the system. You know, couples have to prove that their marriage isn't a hoax. They have to look like they're really in love with each other.
Abigail: Yeah, well, I mean, how are they doing that?
Dario: Well, I guess--I guess they live under the same roof.
Dario: You know, they wear wedding bands, they act like a married couple to their friends and family.
Abigail: Dario, I just feel like you know tons of people. There's gotta be somebody that's willing to do that for you. Somebody that you know and somebody you trust.
Dario: Yeah, there is. You.
Sonny: Look, I realize that I can't make you do anything, but I don't have time to babysit you, Gabi.
Gabi: Does it look like I need a sitter?
[Cell phone rings]
Chad: She's proved she can take care of herself.
Sonny: Thanks for the support, Chad.
Paul: Okay, um, let me take this while you guys all duke it out. Eli, hey, what have you got for us?
Eli: I just heard back from Interpol. They believe that Deimos checked into the hotel Athens under the name Constantine massalas. Room 626.
Paul: Thanks. Yeah, we'll get right on that.
Eli: Hey, by any chance have you heard back from Gabi?
Paul: In fact we have. She tracked us down and she's here with us right now.
Eli: Give that girl hell for me, would you?
Paul: [Chuckles] Yeah, will do. Yeah, sonny's trying to convince her to get back to the plane now.
Eli: But she's got a mind of her won.
Paul: Yeah, she's not budging.
Eli: Do you need me to come down there and get it through her thick skull that she could be in danger?
Paul: Don't worry. If she doesn't want to go, we just leave her here with Chad.
JJ: What's going on with Chad?
Eli: Well, he's obviously in Athens. Sonny and Paul are with him now.
Eli: I don't know. Gabi's with 'em, too.
Sonny: You gonna tell us what you're doing here?
Chad: Here on business.
Sonny: Yeah? What kind of business?
Chad: Can't talk about it, but it will help with your assault on your uncle.
Sonny: Really? How could it help?
Chad: I just said I can't talk about it... but let's just say it will... hit him below the belt.
Sonny: The money belt? So if you can destroy him financially, and we can prove that he's here to kidnap Nicole--
Chad: It should give us enough ammunition to put him back in jail permanently.
Sonny: And kick him out of my family.
Paul: Okay, so, that was Eli. Says he got a lead on Deimos. I'm gonna go check it out.
Sonny: All right, I'll come with you.
Paul: No, no, you stay put until you hear back from your contact. I mean, if this turns out to be legit, I'll text you.
Sonny: All right, be careful.
Paul: Yeah. Oh, and, uh... Eli asked if we'd heard from you, I, uh... told him that you were here with Chad and us and he had had nothing to worry about.
[Cell phone rings]
Sonny: This is perfect timing. It's the judge. Hello, this is sonny Kiriakis. Yes, sir, I'm on my way. All right, he has 30 minutes right now and he's less than a mile away. I gotta go. Oh, hey. Stay here and stay outta trouble. I mean it.
Gabi: He's even bossier then will used to be.
Chad: He cares about you.
Abigail: I know, but-- I know, I get it. I don't make it easier for him. [Sighs]
Chad: So you just stowed away?
Gabi: It's not like I crammed into the luggage compartment. I mean, I put on the uniform. I thought it was a genius idea.
Chad: I bet you were working it.
Gabi: I did. I served a pretty mean cocktail. Are you okay? Something going on?
Chad: Uh, Abigail filed for divorce. My marriage looks like it's, uh...over.
[Soft music] I have spent years taking over-the-counter products
Gabi: Abigail is divorcing you?
Gabi: I can't believe this.
Chad: Yeah, neither can I.
Chad: I thought she just wanted some, uh-- needed a moment to catch her breath.
Gabi: Yeah, well, she's-- she's just making a rash decision. That's all. I mean, no, she's very devoted to Thomas. Why would she want to break up your family? That makes no sense. For that exact reason she needs to think long and hard before making that decision. No, she's probably just emotionally confused right now. That's what it is.
Chad: I wish that were the case.
Gabi: Chad, there has to be a reason. There has to be something behind this or-- or maybe someone.
Chad: Hm. I don't wanna talk about this anymore.
Gabi: Okay. Sure, yeah.
Chad: And I shouldn't be surprised because no matter what gesture I made-- big or small, you know, she was just hell bent on ridding herself of her past. [Clears throat] Including me.
Gabi: She thinks we're better for each other and you and I both know that's over, too, so...
Chad: Yeah, you've-- you know, you're making this new life for yourself. I get it.
Gabi: Yeah, I actually should probably tell Eli I'm here myself. I'm gonna... I don't want him to worry about me.
Chad: That's a good idea.
Gabi: Yeah, I'm gonna go do that.
Lani: Nothing from the Greek pd?
JJ: No updates. But that's not it, um... it's Gabi out there with Chad. I don't like it.
Lani: Because they're in love with each other?
JJ: I can't stop thinking about Abigail.
Lani: It's none of my business, but... I thought your sister was the one who walked out on Chad.
JJ: She did, but--
Lani: Look, I don't know him very well, JJ, but if Gabi is with Chad, at least she's away from all this going down. Away from the fray with Deimos. It's safer for her.
JJ: You know what? Yeah, you'd think, but whenever she is with him, she always manages to get in all kinds of trouble. Just in the last few months they were locked together in DiMera's panic room, nearly frozen to death in a meat locker, poisoned by Deimos-- she barely, barely survived.
Lani: But she did. She's a resourceful and smart woman. You were with her before, JJ, you know that. And I think it's sweet that you still care, but...
Eli: Gabi is moved on with me now.
JJ: Then you she be worried about her being out there with Chad, too.
[Cell phone rings]
Eli: There she is now.
Eli: You know I'm not too happy with you, right?
Gabi: I know, Paul told me and I'm sorry I didn't check in with you sooner.
Eli: Ch-- leaving without telling me wasn't cool.
Gabi: I was afraid that you'd stop me.
Eli: As long as you're truly all right.
Gabi: Yeah, we ran into Chad DiMera.
Eli: I heard.
Gabi: Eli, look, I need you to be okay with me hanging around him, okay? Chad came here on business, but he's an emotional wreck and he needs a friend.
Gabi: Abigail's divorcing him. She just sent notice that she filed.
Eli: Just be careful. All right, if Deimos finds out that you're with Chad, he could come after you again.
Gabi: I promise. And I'll check in in a little bit. Bye.
Lani: So she's staying out there with Chad?
Eli: Apparently, he's in really rough shape.
JJ: What did he do this time?
Eli: It's because of your sister. She just filed for divorce.
Eric: It's all clear.
Nicole: Thank god there weren't any guards outside our bedroom.
Eric: Yeah, which also means it could be a trap.
Nicole: That's reassuring.
Eric: Remember, we're not alone. Xander's not stupid.
Nicole: Yeah, you're right. [Gasps] Oh, my god. One of Xander's thugs is right outside the door.
Eric: Hey, you know what to do.
Nicole: Yeah, I do. I just hope it works. I need to get back to holly.
Eric: Just follow my lead.
Gabi: When I heard that all my friends were coming over here to catch Deimos, well, I felt a little left behind.
Chad: It's what they do for a living.
Gabi: Not sonny.
Chad: Oh, but it's his uncle they're going after, so I'd say his stake in getting rid of that scum is pretty high.
Gabi: After what he's done to me and my family, I have a stake in it, too. And now them not even letting me anywhere near the action.
Chad: I understand your need to be here, but I think it's best that you stay outta their war.
Gabi: I mean, it's my war, too, and yours.
Chad: True, but, like I told sonny, I will deal with Deimos my own way. I don't have much fight left in me right now.
Gabi: I guess, for once, Deimos Kiriakis is not high on your priority list.
Chad: No, he's not. And despite my hatred for him, I can't blame him for my ruining my marriage.
Gabi: Do you blame me?
Abigail: I'm sorry, I can't marry you. I'm right in the middle of a divorce with Chad. What would that look like?
Dario: I know, but this is gonna be... strictly name only. Platonic, okay? Okay, yeah, we would be living under the same roof, but it would be just to prove to the authorities that we're a real couple.
Abigail: Okay, so what about our friends and family? Do--I mean, do we have to lie to them, too, or do we get to tell them the truth?
Dario: I mean, that would be kinda tricky, actually.
Abigail: Meaning... okay, so we gotta let them believe that we're married, too? So we're--we're gonna persuade them that we are madly in love. Like, richer for poorer, better, worse, et cetera...
Abigail: Et cetera?
Dario: Right. Right. We'd have to keep it a secret to almost everyone. What are you thinking?
Abigail: I'm just wondering how you're gonna deal with your feelings for me. I mean, if you're really in love with me the way that you say you are, I think--do you not feel like that would make things a little bit hard? Like living together and sleeping in the same room is--
Dario: We're friends. Right? We've been friends since you got to Salem and... friends help each other.
Abigail: I have to do what's best for my son.
Abigail: And for Chad and I-I don't think that he would probably approve this.
Chad: Why would he have to approve? I mean, what happened to you being that strong, independent, single woman? Make your own decisions, right?
Abigail: I am that. But I think that this is a little bit different.
Dario: Okay. Okay, I-- I am sorry. I-I'm sorry for pressuring you. Okay? I can tell it's making you feel uncomfortable. So I will stop. I will--I'm gonna figure something out. And if I can't, I will... sell club TBD and leave Salem. It's not the end of the world.
Abigail: But I know how much you love the club and Salem is your home now.
Dario: Yeah, yeah, it's-- it's taken me a while to get here and I have liked being home and since my dad's gone--
Abigail: Dario, please--
Dario: No, stop. Really. Don't worry about me. You've done enough. And... thank you for listening. I'm gonna figure something out. I always do.
Sonny: You got a bead on him?
Paul: Yeah, yeah. He's definitely in room 626. Any luck with you with the judge?
Sonny: The local authorities hate certain members of my family as much as I thought they would. Once this is over, they'll happily take control of Xander here and they love the idea of exiling Deimos back to the united states for good.
Paul: Yeah, well, not that we want him, either.
Sonny: Anything worthwhile?
Paul: Well, the drapes are open, but the sheers are making it pretty tough to see inside.
Sonny: Oh, yeah, you can't make out much.
Paul: Just give it a sec.
Sonny: Oh, there he is. He's on a call. If only we knew who he was talking to.
Deimos: What do you mean you sold it to Chad DiMera? He's in Athens? But that amulet was promised to me! All right, you know what? I'm not gonna let this go, but right now that list I gave you is paramount. Once you've made everything on it a reality, you get back to me. The sooner the better.
[Phone beeps] As soon as I take care of Xander, I'll finally be able to save Nicole and holly.
Nicole: Please! Is anyone out there? Please help! I don't know what happened. He just seized up and collapsed. Maybe from the beating before. I don't know. Oh, my gosh. Oh, come on. Are you just gonna let this man die on your watch?
I'll get a doctor.
Nicole: No, no, no, no. There's no time for that. Xander's been wanting revenge on him for years. He will be furious if you take that away from him and let Eric die. Oh, my god. Oh, my god he's not breathing! Help!
Move out of the way.
Eric: Nicole, I'll hold him off. Get out of here now!
Nicole: Not without you!
Eric: You've gotta get to holly! Now, go!
Chad: I don't blame you, Gabi. What happened between Abigail and me... was complicated.
Chad: My goal--I'm just gonna focus on my future and Thomas.
Gabi: Of course. Of course. Well, I should, uh, probably get going if I wanna catch sonny and Paul. Hey, you should come with me.
Chad: It's better if I stay out of it. Lie low. I think you should, too.
Gabi: If I decided to do that, would you be opposed to me lying low with you?
Lani: You okay?
Eli: Just feeling claustrophobic. I need to get some air.
Lani: I think it's more than just claustrophobia.
JJ: Ever since he heard Gabi's with Chad, he's not been happy.
Lani: I can see them getting back together.
Lani: Gabi and Chad.
JJ: No way. Why would you even think that?
Lani: Why is it a problem for you?
JJ: Because I can't help but think about my sister and what she's going through. Look, despite her tough talk about standing on her own two feet, I think one day soon she's going to realize that she should be with her husband. And what if it's too late for them?
Lani: JJ, from somewhat of an outsider's position, Abigail is a smart woman and she knows what she's doing. And I respect her choices. You know, and you should, too. Can you?
JJ: Yeah. Yeah, I can. It's just... I thought she and Chad were-- were good together.
Lani: What? So is your faith in love sort of faltering?
JJ: Well, you could say that.
Lani: Mm-hmm. Well, maybe I can restore it.
Is that helping?
JJ: It's not helping a whole--whole lot, but I think you-- you should keep trying.
Sonny: All right, everyone's in the loop now.
Paul: So they know we have jurisdiction and we can move forward?
Sonny: Thanks to my dad's contact, yes. Let me know the minute Deimos is on the move. Okay?
Paul: Absolutely. Hey, you be safe, okay?
Sonny: You, too.
[Cell phone rings]
Deimos: Tell me you have everything. Then why the hell are you bothering me? I don't care what you have so far. All right, listen to me. I don't give a damn if you have to hijack a military helicopter. Just get everything on that list! And get it now!
Dario: Abigail? Whoa! Whoa. Hey. Hey. Hey. It's me. It's me. You're all right. Abby? Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. It's okay.
Dario: It's okay, you're safe. Just shh shh shh shh.
[Abigail breathing shakily]
Dario: Just breathe. Just breathe. Just breathe.
Abigail: Please, please, please, please, please. [Crying] Oh, my god. Thank god!
Dario: Abigail? What are you doing--[Groans] Gabi. Gabi! Gabi!
Abigail: Her pulse was really weak. She wasn't really breathing.
Dario: All right, we gotta get them outta here. Call 911! Come on! Come on, sweetie. Come on. Come on.
Abigail: I mean, we want people to dig deep, but at the same time, we want them to have fun, so, you know, a lotta dancing.
Dario: Dancing? Okay. Got it. What are you doing?
Abigail: Uh, measuring. Do you have any idea how high your ceilings are? I just wanna know how big the banner can be.
Dario: Um, no. Abigail, I--
Abigail: That's okay, never mind, I'll just get it.
Dario: Just, uh, you wanna be--
Dario: Oh, jeez.
Abigail: You ready? Five, six, seven, eight.
[Sultry tango music]
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three, four, five six-- you're a natural.
Dario: I have a good teacher.
Abigail: [Sighs] I mean, he's done so much for me, but... marry him? Could I?
Gabi: Look, if you wanna be alone, that's totally cool, I just don't wanna mess up nailing Deimos. Maybe I should take your advice and sonny's advice and stay outta the way.
Chad: You should.
Gabi: All right, so, what do you say? Should we go take in the acropolis or the Parthenon?
Chad: How about both?
Gabi: You're on.
[Eli clears throat]
JJ: Eli, sorry.
Eli: No, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to break that up. I got a text from sonny. He met with judge...Kostas. It's time to make our move.
Lani: As soon as Deimos makes his move...
JJ: We'll be ready.
Deimos: Xander, it's me. We're almost there. Just make sure everything is ready on your end. All right? What I'll do is I'll send you a text so just make sure that your phone is charged and you're checking it often. Next time I see you, we'll both have what we truly want. You'll have your freedom, and I'll finally have the woman I love.
