Marlena: Uh, victor, I just spoke to Dr. Grant.
Marlena: I'm so sorry to be the person that has to tell you this.
Victor: Just tell me straight.
Marlena: She doesn't think he's going to make it through the night.
Who are you calling?
Victor: Mayo clinic. Obviously he needs a different doctor. Should've done this the minute they brought him in.
Marlena: I know you're feeling powerless right now.
Victor: I'm not powerless. I can afford the best.
Marlena: Well, all the influence and money in the world aren't going to change this.
Victor: No? Then what is?
Marlena: I'm afraid all we can do now is pray.
John: I know you're tired of fighting, kid. But you can't pack it in. I want you to think about your boy. You think about Tate. You think about little holly. You think about Nicole. You--you think about your old man, damn it. Because we need you right here in this world with us.
I'm begging you, buddy. You reach back, and you find the strength to hang in there.
Chad: Yeah, that's great. No, I'll be, uh-- I'll be there as soon as I can. Thank you.
Gabi: Who was that?
Chad: Pilot. Plane's engine has been fixed, and we're ready to go.
Gabi: Okay, so what caused the problem?
Chad: He doesn't know. Neither does the technician. But plane's done, and I'm ready to go.
Gabi: No, you don't think it's a little weird that nobody can figure out what happened?
Chad: Take a look at me right now. Take a look at this face. Do I look like an aeronautical engineer?
Chad: No, I don't.
Gabi: No, you look like somebody who has a stolen amulet that is cursed.
Chad: Okay, you know what? You're putting a little bit too much faith in that curse.
Gabi: All I know is, since you touched it, bad things have been happening.
Chad: Like what, spending a little bit longer in Greece? I'm sorry. That doesn't sound so bad.
Gabi: Abigail divorcing you. Sprained my ankle. Eli dumped me.
Chad: Fair. The divorce was gonna happen no matter what. And staying in Greece a little bit longer has allowed me to figure things out... in this thing. And now I'm ready to get back home and see my son, so...
Gabi: Yeah, I miss Arianna too. Yeah, I have to get back before Lucas spoils her rotten.
Chad: You should come-- come home with, uh-- with hope and me.
Chad: Okay. Does--does the outfit come with you, the little-- the little stewardess outfit, does that come with?
Gabi: Oh, stop. Forget-- oh, god, wow. Yeah, me sneaking on sonny's plane as a flight attendant. What was I thinking? That was crazy.
Chad: No, it wasn't.
Gabi: And I just got in everybody's way. That is exactly what I did. He's gonna get what's coming to him.
Deimos: Nicole. Are you all right?
Nicole: To tell you the truth, I've had better days.
Eric: Don't move!
Deimos: All right, what-- what the hell is going on here?
Nicole: Well, I think it should be obvious. We took care of your pal here, and now we're gonna deal with you.
Deimos: Wait, what? What, you-- you think I lined up with him?
Nicole: We know you did.
Deimos: All right, look. I don't know what that psychopath told you, but I came here to rescue you and holly from him!
Nicole: Well, his words might be lies, but his phone doesn't lie. Because Xander got a text ordering him to deliver me to someone tonight, and I'm assuming that someone was you.
Marlena: I'm so sorry to be the person that has to give you this terrible news. I need to go to john.
Victor: I want to thank you for being so civil to me tonight... after the way I treated Eric.
Marlena: Well... being cruel to Eric would not bring back Daniel.
Victor: I know. I'll never get over Daniel's death. Can't lose Brady as well.
[Elevator bell dings]
John: I won't let him go.
Can't let you go, kid.
Eli: Is your department gonna give us backup when we go to the island?
My superior wants to know how you got confirmation that Deimos Kiriakis and Xander cook are holding an American woman and child against their will.
JJ: We got to one of Deimos' operatives. His name is guy mantzoukas. He's got a list of priors as long as my arm and outstanding warrants against him. So we said we'd help him if he'd help us.
And what did he tell you?
JJ: That Deimos is behind the kidnapping of miss walker and her baby.
Lani: He also said that Xander cook, aka Xander Kiriakis, is holding Nicole and her baby on the island on Deimos' order.
Malista. You know this for certain?
JJ: He's been making the arrangements for Deimos to take Nicole and her baby off the island and into his control.
Will this man, guy, testify in court?
JJ: Unless he wants to go to prison here. That's the deal we made.
Malista. Well, I have to report back what you just told me. But I'm sure you'll have your backup.
Hope: Can we stop talking now and just get on with this and find Nicole and the baby? Let's go.
Deimos: Okay, you know what? Maybe you're not aware of this, but I saved Brady's life! I'm the one that paid for the chopper to bring him back to Salem! He's the one that told me that Xander had you and holly. And ever since he told me that, I've spent day and night trying to find you.
Nicole: Mm-hmm, right, and came rushing to my rescue.
Deimos: Yes, yes! That's exactly right! All right, you know what? Where's holly? We have to get out--
Eric: Hey, you're not touching her.
Nicole: I'm not going anywhere with you, Deimos.
Deimos: All right, Nicole, I realize that you've been angry with me, but I am genuinely here to help you.
Nicole: Just stop! I know that Xander's been working for you, okay? And I know that you're the reason that Brady got shot and I spent time in that cage, away from my daughter. So stop treating me like I'm stupid, and admit it! Let's party!
John: I just keep studying his face, just... just looking for any kind of a sign that he's fighting back.
Marlena: Well... he's young. He's got that going for him. I know he'd never want to leave Tate... or you. And he's found something in Nicole that he thinks is worth living for.
John: My god, I hope you're right, doc. Come on, kid. Come on, kid.
Chad: So as soon as hope gets back to me, we can, uh--we can take off.
Gabi: Thank you for the ride. I was not looking forward to sharing a private jet with the guy who just dumped me.
Chad: Were you, uh-- were you guys that serious? Or were you serious about him?
Gabi: I don't know. I mean, yeah. I mean, we were having fun, and it seemed to be going in the right direction. But once he found out that Abigail filed for divorce, that was it.
Chad: That's it?
Chad: What's wrong with that guy?
Gabi: Well, he knew that, um, I used to have feelings for you.
Chad: Well, you don't break up with somebody just because they used to have feelings for somebody else. It's not like you're popping your gum or nothing.
Gabi: Yeah, no, popping gum is a deal breaker.
Chad: It's gross. I'm kidding.
Gabi: I know. I don't know. I guess he thought that once you were free, I'd go running back to you, and there was just no way I could prove him wrong. I don't know. I'm not even desperate to be in a relationship, though.
Chad: Sure. Sure.
Gabi: I'm taking a break. I am. I'm focusing on my daughter and my business. Actually sounds really good for me.
Chad: That's the same plan I have. Thomas and DiMera.
Gabi: Okay, good. But listen, now that you, um-- you're gonna go through this divorce, I have a question for you. It's kind of important.
Deimos: Are you forgetting? I shot him! I left him in the river to die!
Nicole: Yeah, that's what you said, mm-hmm.
Deimos: [Scoffs] All right, you know what? Even if I did have you and holly kidnapped, which I would never do in a million years, I certainly wouldn't hire him to take charge of it!
Nicole: That is such bull. You two have been working together this whole time.
Deimos: How is that even possible?
Nicole: You and Xander were alone on the docks after the siege. You had Xander on the ropes, and then you decided he was more use to you alive than dead, so you struck up some kind of deal, and then you sent him to Canada to attack me. Is that when you were gonna swoop in and rescue me? But, oh, dear. Did sonny and Paul ruin your fun? So you went to plan b, and, oh, Eric got in the way. It seems like someone's always getting in the way of you being a fake hero.
Deimos: Wow. Wow, that--that is quite the elaborate story. But since it's based on nothing but conjecture, no hard evidence whatsoever...
Nicole: Duplicity and manipulation are always unmasked. Just give the cops a little time, Deimos.
Deimos: All right, listen, Nicole! I'm the one telling you the truth here. And believe me, I would like to kill him right now, but I don't want to waste a second getting you and holly out of here!
Nicole: Well, it looks like you came all this way for nothing, because I am going back with Eric.
Deimos: Really? Really? Well, can he get you past the armed guards?
Nicole: I'm sure that's easy for you, right? Because they're on your payroll.
Deimos: I got past them because I studied the terrain. I paid a local who told me about a secret way in and out of here. And if we want to get out of here alive, we need to go that way now.
Eric: I heard the helicopter you arrived on.
Deimos: Yeah, yeah. That's right. That's right. I have a helicopter. I have a pilot. I have armed guards just waiting for us. But we have to leave now if we want to get out of here!
Nicole: Right. And what about him?
Deimos: Once we're in the air, I'll call the local police. I'll tell them where to find him.
Nicole: Yeah, just like you told everyone that you shot him and went into the river?
Deimos: Nicole! We have to leave!
Maggie: What are you thinking?
Victor: I'm thinking how much he reminds me of his mother. If there's a heaven, she's there... with Daniel and Bo.
Maggie: I don't know about you, but that comforts me.
Victor: Too much loss for this old soul. I really don't know if I can survive it.
Maggie: Darling, I don't know what to say.
Victor: What is there to say?
Maggie: [Sniffles] Well, I'm gonna call Emma, and I'm gonna tell her that I won't be home tonight. I want to stay with you.
Victor: No, you go home. You should be with Tate. Please. That's what Brady would want.
Maggie: I love you, Brady.
Chad: Why so serious?
Gabi: Chad, can we ever be friends? Seriously, I mean...
Chad: Oh, this is a serious--
Gabi: Real friends? Yes.
Gabi: Yeah, I don't want to have to walk in somewhere and see you and then have to figure out some plan to avoid you.
Chad: Listen, I hate that too, and I understand why we did it before, but now I... what's the point?
Gabi: Because we were friends.
Chad: We can be friends again.
Gabi: Glad you feel that way.
Gabi: Good, 'cause there's a bunch of times where I want to take a picture of Arianna if she's doing something cute or if she's saying something really cute, and I can't because I can't--you know, I can't call you or anything. And I hate living like that.
Chad: Yeah, me too.
Gabi: After everything we've gone through, I'd be really sad if you weren't in my life.
Chad: Well, we have a lot of great memories thanks to Deimos.
Gabi: [Scoffing] Yeah.
Chad: We'll always have the meat locker, kid.
Gabi: Oh, my god. The meat locker.
Chad: Was it too much?
Gabi: Please don't say that.
Chad: Uh...I-I don't know why--why hope hasn't gotten back to...
Gabi: Yeah, where is she?
Chad: Last I heard, she was with JJ, Lani, and Eli. And I know she was really anxious to get back, so--
Gabi: Oh, my god, Chad.
Gabi: What if they found Deimos?
Nicole: You did this, didn't you, you bastard?
Deimos: No. No! No, he must know that Eric and I are--
Nicole: Eric! Oh, my god!
Deimos: All right, Nicole, Nicole, we have to get out of here now!
Nicole: Eric, say something!
Deimos: All right, look. I can make sure that you and holly have the life that you both need together, okay? I can take you somewhere where no one will ever find you.
Nicole: Are you hurt?
Eric: I don't think it's too bad.
Deimos: All right, Nicole, listen to me! Eric can't help you right now. Brady can't help you right now. If you go back to Salem with Eric, they're gonna throw you in jail, and they're gonna take holly away forever, all right? I'm all you've got!
Eric: No, you leave her alone.
Nicole: I am not leaving with you. I would rather stay here with that animal than go anywhere with you!
Deimos: Oh, my gosh. You're not thinking clearly! Xander's men have the place surrounded. They must know what the two of you have done to him. They must know that I'm here. Why are we wasting time? Come on. Hey.
Eric: You let her go!
Deimos: No! We're wasting too much time. Where is holly?
Nicole: I don't--
Eli: FBI! Stop right there!
Sonny: Hey, all hell's broken loose.
Chad: W-w-what do you mean? What happened?
Sonny: Paul was watching where Deimos was supposed to be and was ambushed from behind and left for dead.
Gabi: Is he--is he, uh--
Sonny: No. Yeah, he's at the hospital. The doctors say he's gonna be fine.
Gabi: Oh, my god.
Sonny: But he's gonna be in there for a while, so he wants me to take over.
Chad: Who got him?
Sonny: It's got to be Deimos.
Gabi: Have you heard from JJ or Lani or Eli?
Sonny: No, I haven't heard from them since they left for the island.
Gabi: They left?
Chad: Well, okay, that must be why hope's not getting back to us. I don't like the sound of this.
Gabi: Do you think that Deimos is gonna do to them what he did to Paul?
Sonny: Actually, I think it's the other way around.
JJ: Let go of her.
Nicole: Oh, thank god you're here. Eric's been shot. You have to help him.
Deimos: You're making a big mistake here.
JJ: Yeah, I don't think so.
Lani: Your man guy, we leaned on him. Took him about 20 seconds to roll on you.
Deimos: I don't know what the hell you're talking about.
Eli: That's funny. He knows all about you.
Lani: The man sang like he was on "the voice."
Nicole: Eric, how are you doing?
Eric: All right.
Hope: He's not losing a lot of blood; he'll be fine.
Eric: How did you find us?
Hope: One of Deimos' guys gave him up.
Nicole: Deimos and Xander have been working together all along.
Deimos: No, no, that's not true. That's what Xander wants you all to believe.
Nicole: No, because Xander got a text ordering him to--to deliver me to someone, and I know it was Deimos. Check his phone. He had it on him when we jumped him. It's right there.
Lani: It's all shot up.
Deimos: All right, look. Um... [Chuckles nervously] I don't know who or what you think you have on me, but I don't know any guy named guy or--or anybody with that name. I don't know who the hell he is, okay? I have a lot of enemies here, so he's probably one of them. Now, the only thing you're gonna find out about me is that I came here to rescue Nicole and holly. Xander's the one that kidnapped her. He's the one that shot Brady. He's the one that kept holly and Nicole prisoner here. He did that, and he did it alone.
Nicole: Oh, for god's sake! Why don't you ask him if he was working alone?
Eli: Well? What do you have to say for yourself?
John: Oh, kid.
Brady: Are they really moving you to federal prison so soon?
John: Seems so. For, uh--for quite a while. For good, actually.
Brady: This is crazy.
John: I did this for my family. It was a choiceless choice, son.
Brady: I get it.
John: My family means everything to me. I'm gonna reintroduce a classic line using more traditional media.
Brady: Dad, I got to say, um, I think we just reached a compromise or something.
John: I think black is back. Look, I know that we've had a couple rough years here--
Brady: Yeah, dad, dad, dad, listen, man. I'm sober--I'm sober, and Theresa's out of my life. Things are great.
John: Well, I have realized that I need to let you lead your own life, and I will just trust your decisions.
Brady: Dad...thank you. Thank you for saying that. But the fact is, dad, I have made so many lousy decisions, and I'm probably gonna make a lot more. So when I screw up, you'll still be there for me when I need you, right?
John: [Sighs] Oh, man. So many things I didn't say. So many things I didn't say often enough. Like what a great kid you were... and how proud I am of the man that you've become. Hey, god... please give me the chance to say that again to him. [Sniffling] Oh, I love you, kid.
Victor: I, uh... I don't know where to start. Please help him. Medical science has done all that it can do, and... and you're his only hope. My only hope.
Daniel: It's gonna be all right. I'm here for you... and for Brady.
Marlena: The doctors are coming in to run some tests on Brady. They'll ask us to leave. Why don't we get some air, hmm?
John: That's a good idea.
John: I'll be back, kid.
Daniel: Yo, dude. Wake up.
Gabi: So Deimos had Nicole and the baby kidnapped?
Chad: And he and Xander are working together?
Sonny: That's what one of his boys said. He claims he can prove it. Now, if everything's going according to plan, Eli, JJ, Lani, hope are all heading to Xander's island with some Greek cops for backup.
Gabi: Is Deimos there?
Sonny: That's what we're hoping for.
Chad: Well, I hope they get him, because Deimos has a serious knack for getting himself out of these little things.
[Cell phone rings]
Sonny: It's JJ. Hey, what's going on? Where are you?
JJ: We're on the island. Both Deimos and Xander are in custody.
Sonny: Great! Deimos and Xander are in custody.
JJ: I can't talk right now, but I'll fill you in when I get back.
Sonny: I have to see this for myself. I'm coming to the island.
Eli: We're waiting.
Xander: I did it all. I was working by myself.
Hope: Are you sure about that? Because I'm thinking if you were to provide key details about exactly what happened and who you were working with, maybe, perhaps, you might be able to cut a deal with the authorities.
JJ: Otherwise, I'd say you're pretty screwed.
Xander: I'm not saying another word without my lawyer.
Nicole: You tell them the truth. You tell them you were taking orders from him!
Xander: Your personal issues with my uncle are your problem, not mine.
Eli: All right, let's go.
Nicole: Eric, Eric. I can't--I can't leave with them. I've got to get out of here.
Eric: Hope. Can we go get the baby now?
Hope: Yeah, go. Go ahead. Follow them.
Deimos: All right, you know what? Enough of this, okay? You heard Xander. He said I had nothing to do with his plan.
Hope: That's for the D.A. To decide once we get back to Salem.
Deimos: I don't have to go anywhere with you. I'm a Greek citizen!
Hope: Good, I'm glad to hear it. Greece has an extradition treaty with the U.S.
Deimos: All right, you know what? This is ridiculous. I want to talk to my lawyer!
Hope: You'll get your call once we get back to Salem.
I was waylaid by one of the guards. By the time I had him under control, the woman and the guy took off.
Brady: Uh, okay, all right. Am I--am I dreaming, or am-- or am I where you are?
Daniel: No, no, no, I came to you. They let us do that every once in a while.
Brady: Right. Oh, my god, Daniel, are you, uh-- are you gonna take me to the other side or something?
Daniel: No, no, no, that's, uh-- well, that's up to you.
Brady: What do you mean?
Daniel: I mean I only had one heart to give you, and that was supposed to be for life. But the warranty doesn't cover getting shot, so you have some heavy, heavy lifting to do.
Brady: What are-- what are you talking about, man?
Daniel: You need to show your immune system who's boss, stop it from rejecting my heart.
Brady: Yeah, I don't know how to do that.
Daniel: Well, I was a doctor, not a mystic. But all I know is, you need to be there for your son and Nicole and my daughter. They need you. So you got things to do, man.
Brady: Something I got to tell you, uh... [Sighs] Buddy, I'm in love with Nicole. I want her to be my wife. Tell me if you're not cool with it. If you hate the idea, tell me. Please.
Daniel: No, no, of course I don't hate it. I don't want Nicole to spend her life alone. And I want holly to have a father. And I want you to live a long, long, happy life.
Brady: We were gonna be a family. So much for that "happily ever after," right?
Daniel: Like I said, that's up to you.
JJ: They can't have gotten far.
Lani: We'll track them down.
Hope: Running is not in their best interest.
Chad: Hey, you actually got him.
Sonny: Paul's fine, by the way. Did your goons tell you that they killed him?
Deimos: I had nothing to do with any of this, all right? I came here to rescue holly and Nicole and to convince them to come back to Salem with me.
Sonny: Yeah, that would be you, a good Samaritan.
Chad: And you may have gotten away with what you did to Abigail, Gabi, and me, but I knew you would screw up eventually. And you did.
Gabi: After everything that you have done to my family, you better hope that you don't share a cell with my father.
Deimos: You know, I hate to break this to you, sweetie, but your father was guilty. I'm not.
Gabi: Wow. And just--I wish Rafe was here to see you in handcuffs. Because after you set it up so that he had to arrest his own father, it would make his day to see you like this.
Sonny: Hope, could I have a few minutes alone with my uncle, please?
Hope: We'll be right outside.
Sonny: I knew-- when I got back to Salem and I saw my uncle Vic kicked out of the mansion, out of his company, and Maggie in a wheelchair-- that I would get you. And all that crap about you being a changed man, wanting to be a part of my family... I didn't buy it for a second. And when I saw how crazy you got when Nicole took off, I knew I had a way to bring you down. And look at you-- handcuffed like the two-bit crook that you are. And you didn't just lose Nicole. You lost everything.
Nicole: Oh, sweetheart, we are gonna be together forever. Hey. How are you doing?
Eric: I'll be fine.
Eric: Really. How's holly?
Nicole: Well, she just had her bottle, and she fell asleep. I mean, after everything this little girl's been through, she is one tough chickie.
Eric: Like her mother. How are you doing?
Nicole: I don't know. I mean, I still can't believe we got away from them.
Eric: Very considerate of Deimos to give us the secret way out.
Nicole: Eric, thank you... for helping us through all of this. But we bolted, and that can't make hope very happy, that she let a fugitive like me escape.
Eric: She's got bigger issues, like Xander and Deimos. I want you to know the coast is clear. Once we land in Sicily, we're gonna refuel. We're gonna move fast, so do you know where you want to go?
Nicole: Oh, god, I have no idea.
Eric: Hey, Roy. Yeah, we're working on our final destination. What? She is? Yeah, put her through. My mom got through to the plane.
Nicole: What does that mean?
Eric: I don't know. Hey, mom.
Marlena: Oh, thank heaven. I was afraid you wouldn't take my call.
Eric: Mom, how did you get through to the plane?
Marlena: That doesn't matter right now. Uh, honey, it's--it's Brady.
Eric: What about him?
Marlena: His heart is giving out.
Eric: Are you saying that...
Marlena: I'm afraid it's just a matter of time.
Nicole: What? What did she say?
Hope: Eli got approval for me to escort Deimos back to the states. So we will be flying commercial. But thank you for the offer.
Chad: Wait, so you're just-- you're just out--you're out of here just like that?
Chad: Do you have enough to actually put him away?
Hope: Actually, we have plenty with Nicole's testimony.
Deimos: I wouldn't gloat too much if I were you. This whole thing's gonna get cleared up. And then I'm gonna deal with you and your friends.
Sonny: Don't hold your breath waiting for any of that to happen.
Deimos: Mm. Nicole is gone. All they have now is the word of a two-bit crook and Xander, who clearly stated that he was working entirely alone. I'm not worried.
Hope: Time for us to catch a flight.
Deimos: Well, I sure hope we're not flying coach. Could definitely use the leg room, you know?
Hope: See you back in Salem.
Chad: Bye-bye. Think it'll stick?
Sonny: It has to.
Brady: What do you mean-- what do you mean, it's up to me? Daniel, I'm fading away here.
Daniel: And if it's your time to go... well, let me tell just say, it's really not that bad. But something tells me this idea of your dying is... is premature.
Daniel: Look, I got to go. But just so you know, where I'm going is fabulous.
Daniel: Oh, surfing 24-7, perfect break. And the sun always shines.
Daniel: But you, my friend, you need to be here. And so what if you need a miracle to stay alive? 'Cause I can promise you, miracles... whew, they are real. And I know my heart is strong enough to keep going. And I believe you are too.
Nicole: How bad is he?
Eric: My mom... Nicole, I'm sorry. She doesn't think Brady's gonna make it through the night.
Nicole: Oh, my god. I can't believe this is happening. But it is. It is. I-- oh, god, I need to see him. I need to be with him.
Eric: And you know what you're walking into.
Nicole: Brady has never abandoned me... not once, no matter what. So could you just please tell the pilot that we're going to back to Salem? [Crying]
