Theo: Claire, come on. I wish you'd come out. Claire, you've been holed up in there for hours. We need to talk.

Claire: There's nothing to talk about.


Claire: I'll get it.

Marlena: May I come in?

Claire: Yeah. I know exactly why you're here.

Marlena: Hi, Theo.

Theo: Hi.

Marlena: May we speak privately, please?

Theo: Yeah, no problem.

Claire: Go ahead. Let me have it.

Victor: You know, you scared the hell out of me.

Sonny: I'm sure. You know, when that plane crashed on the island, and we were stranded there, and the person that I love morphed into a psychopathic killer, you know what I was thinking, uncle Vic? I kept saying to myself, "I hope doesn't upset uncle victor."

Victor: Yeah, well, I'm glad to hear that you're still a smartass.

Sonny: I love you too. I was thinking about you.

Victor: Oh, I'm sure you were. "What would victor Kiriakis do?"

Sonny: Yeah, well, you ask those questions, you'll get some weird answers. I was thinking about titan too. That was one of the reasons I was fighting to get back home, so I could fix what Deimos did to this company.

Victor: Well, you were right about Deimos.

Sonny: Yeah, I was right about everything.

Victor: And, being a man of my word, while you were vacationing in the Greek isles--

Sonny: Right, oh, absolutely. It was restful.

Victor: I talked to the board. Your father's drawing up the papers. You are now the new CEO of titan.

Sonny: Awesome.

Victor: Well, actually, not so much.

Chad: Well, I understand if, you know, they've been hooking up for what, like a couple of weeks, but that's gonna be his excuse for them to get married? It all seems, you know, very sudden, right?

Gabi: Yeah. Yeah, I'm sorry. This must be really hard for you.

Chad: No, hey, come here. It's--look, I've moved on, okay? It's just, you know, I-- and it's not just about me. I got to think about Thomas, and worried about you...

Kate: [Gasps] They're back.

André: Chad. You're back.

Chad: Well, come here. What are you doing?

André: You're alive. Oh, thank god.

Chad: Ah, it was a hell of an island adventure, I'll tell you that.

André: Oh, is it?

Kate: I am so glad. So glad that you're okay.

André: I was so worried about you.

Kate: You too.

Chad: We're back. We're fine.

André: Yes, well, that's all well, and good, and certainly want to hear about what took place, but I think congratulations are in order. You want to do the honors?

Kate: Well, the fact is, I'm a DiMera again.

Gabi: What?

Chad: I don't understand.

Kate: But this time, I'm married to Mr. André DiMera.

Chad: [Laughs]

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."

[Soft orchestration]

Valerie: Eli? It's mom. Um, I know you're back home, safely, thank god for that. I need to see you, honey. I need to see with my own eyes that you're all right. Will you call me please? Okay?

Lani: You're gonna call her back, aren't you?

Eli: Sure. Later.

Lani: Look, I know it's none of my business...

Eli: That's right.

Lani: And I promised to stay out of it...

Eli: That's also right.

Lani: But... I just came from seeing my dad. And it made me feel like I was really home.

Eli: That's good.

Lani: It was. And I really think it would be good for you to see your mom.

André: And shin was spreading the rumor that I was mentally unstable.

Chad: And you married Kate to prove him right?

Kate: He married me to make me a DiMera again. Because shin's smear campaign was so successful that none of the board members would have voted for him as CEO.

André: Quite a few of the board members were planning to dismantle the entire enterprise.

Kate: They were gonna take the money and run, Chad.

André: And they would only elect a DiMera.

Kate: And I have run the company successfully before, as you well know.

André: And that's why we got married. To make sure that the entire enterprise was still here intact when you returned.

Chad: Huh.

Kate: And you're back. Right?

Chad: Yes.

Kate: We never lost hope. We never did. Your brother loves you very much. He was a wreck.

Chad: I'm sure he does, and this is a lot to digest. And if this proves not to be an attempt to grab power on my brother's part, then thank you. But you do know that the board's gonna expect you to stay a DiMera for some time, so you're gonna have to stay shackled to this guy--

André: Hello? I'm standing right here.

Chad: I know.

Gabi: He's asking if you're ready to throw away your life by marrying this man.

Eli: Yeah, I know. I should call her. It's just...

Lani: It's just what?

Eli: Things were just really bad between us.

Lani: You were angry at her. Things being bad didn't keep her from calling you.

Eli: I know.

Lani: Eli, she just went through hell. She didn't know if you were alive or dead. Do you really want to hang on to this anger? She made a mistake. A big one. But she did it out of love. In all of this, I mean, did you ever doubt that she loved you?

Eli: No.

Lani: Then for god's sake, call her back.

Theo: Hey, um, have you seen my sister?

Valerie: No, not tonight.

Theo: Okay, I'm supposed to meet her here.

Valerie: Oh, well, why don't you wait with me. We can celebrate the good news of everybody making it home safely.

Theo: Yeah, yeah, okay. [Clears throat] So, um, my dad must have told you about me, Claire, and the video.

Valerie: Hmm. Yeah. He also said that you had no idea there was a camera in the room.

Theo: Yeah, no, I had no idea.

Valerie: It's such a good thing that none of this got out onto the web.

Theo: Yeah, yeah, um... it did get me to start thinking, though, asking a lot of questions.

Valerie: Oh, yeah? Thinking about what?

Theo: About sex. You know, it all just turned out so differently than what I thought. So much more... complicated.

Claire: Just want to let you know that I did not know about that video until after jade made it.

Marlena: I don't care about the details. But I am curious to hear how jade knew that you and Theo were having sex. Did you tell her that?

Claire: I don't know. Girls talk about that stuff.

Marlena: And what about Theo? How does he feel about you discussing this? How does he feel about this being part of your girl talk to your friends?

Claire: Sorry. I made a mistake.

Marlena: What do you think? This is just no big deal? Claire... sex is a very big step. And from what I'm seeing you say and do... I don't think it's a step you're ready to take yet.

Sonny: Wow, I know it's gonna be a challenge to get titan back on track, but I am up for the challenge, uncle vic.

Victor: Well, I hope you are. You're the new CEO. I just want to make sure that you understand that it's sink or swim time. Because you're gonna be making decisions that go beyond titan.

Sonny: I get it.

Victor: I don't think you do. You know, it's gonna start out with coloring outside the lines. And it may go a bit further.

Sonny: Do you think I can't handle the gray area?

Victor: No, I... I know you have a strong sense of right and wrong. A code of ethics. Before you make some snide that I your sense of decency. I just don't want to see you get crammed down a rabbit hole. Because once you're down there, sonny, it's very hard to climb out.

Kate: Thank you both for your concern, really, I mean it, but you don't have to worry about us. We both know this is a business arrangement.

Chad: I'm aware that André loves to make a good deal. Especially one that gets him closer to running my company.

Kate: Okay, I told you before that's not how it happened. We always knew that you were coming back, and we both agreed that I would give up reins of the company to you after six months.

Chad: Six months? Meanwhile, he will be married to the CEO.

André: I was looking out for you.

Chad: Well, then thank you. But I'm back, and I'm not happy with how the board handled all this, so I am gonna go fix it. Excuse me.

André: You're welcome. So good to have him back.

Gabi: Kate, hey, listen. Forget about the business stuff. Now that you've successfully taken yourself out of the market, what about--what about if you meet the man that you love, what are you--you're gonna be married to him?

Kate: I met the man I loved. And I can't have him. Seems to be a pattern with me. It's time to break that pattern, don't you think?

Claire: We were ready. It didn't just happen. We talked about it, and we were very careful. And it was wonderful. It was, it was everything I thought it would be.

Marlena: I'm sure that it was special. But I know you.

Claire: What does that mean?

Marlena: I know you tend to get caught up in things, and you make them seem more than they are.

Claire: No, that is not true, and it's not fair.

Marlena: It's not fair? Do you remember wanting to be a vegan? And do you remember wanting to free Tibet? Honey, you've got a big heart, and then you take things to extremes, and then you lose interest. I just, I think that probably you told yourself that you love Theo with all your heart and soul because it was romantic. And I think that you thought having sex would be just like in the movies.

Claire: But I do love Theo.

Marlena: Does he love you?

Claire: I don't know. I think he's in love with Ciara.

Valerie: Theo, sex is one of the most complicated things in the world. If it were simple, there wouldn't be books, and movies and songs all about it.

Theo: Yeah. I mean, I thought I was ready. I thought Claire was ready too.

Valerie: Everyone thinks they're ready beforehand. Do you believe Claire really loves you?

Theo: [Sighs] Mm. I mean, I think she did. I blew it, though. When I found out about the video, I blamed her. And then when she told me she had nothing to do with it, I didn't believe her. And she thinks that means I don't love her, but that's not true, I do.

Valerie: But you didn't believe her. That's a really big thing, Theo. That can really hurt. Listen, if you love her, you've got to prove it to her. Work hard to let her know.

Theo: Yeah, you're right.

[Phone ringing]

Valerie: It's Eli. Excuse me.

Theo: Yeah, no worries.

Valerie: Eli. Hi. Thanks for calling me back.

Eli: Hi, um... I just wanted to know if you're free. I'd really like to see you.

Valerie: There is nothing I would love more.

André: I must say, Gabi, I certainly appreciate your contributions. I must say, I've certainly missed your keen business insight. I just wish you were here to help me choose the tie at the time of the wedding.

Chad: So I've talked to the board, and apparently the bylaws say I have to wait six months before I can get my company back, so, I love you, but you really want to do this?

André: Excuse me, but it sounds like everyone

Gabi: Kate, have you established borders?

Kate: Didn't have to do that. Actually, André and I have a very lovely platonic relationship.

André: Yes, we're very fond of each other. Simpatico. Thick as thieves.

Chad: That's great. Well, then congratulations. And I'll be keeping my eye on you. Thank you. I suppose.

André: You don't have to thank me. You don't owe me anything. But this I will say: Unlike past DiMeras, this is one family that will stick together.

Kate: Speaking of sticking together, I can't help but say I've noticed the two of you seem close.

Chad: Yeah. It took a while, but yeah. It's true.

Kate: We couldn't be happier about that. Could we?

André: [Chuckles]

Chad: [Laughs]

Marlena: What makes you think that Theo is in love with Ciara?

Claire: Well, he says he isn't. He says he loves me, but... I don't know. I'm just not sure. So I had to do what I did.

Marlena: Are you trying to use sex to secure your relationship?

Claire: No, that is not what I did.

Marlena: Oh, I'm sorry. What did you do?

Claire: [Sighs]

Valerie: You know, when Eli was little, he was desperate to take the bus to school. All his friends were doing it, so I knew he really wanted to go. So I finally agreed. But, um, it was so hard letting him go. You know, I knew putting him on that bus was putting his well-being in the hands of someone else, and I just didn't like it.

Theo: Yeah, but you knew he could take care of himself, right?

Valerie: I knew he was growing up, and I had to surrender and let him grow. But... when I heard that plane had gone down, and I might never see him again, it took me right back to that moment of putting him on that bus, and the thought of living without him was just more than I could handle.

[Dramatic music]

Gabi: [Sobbing] Oh. [Sobbing]

André: I want you to be happy. And if she makes you happy, truly happy, then I am happy for you.

Gabi: Well, I'm feeling all fuzzy and warm inside--excuse me, I'm gonna check up on Ari.

[Phone ringing]

Chad: Oh, I got to take this.

Kate: That was very supportive of you.

André: I aim to please. Anyway, I'm going to go and unpack my things. Shall I put them into your room, or shall you unpack and put your things in my room?

Kate: Remember, ground rules.

André: [Laughs] Yeah, I was just hoping it'd slipped your mind.


Kate: You okay?

Chad: Yep, it was corporate relations. Wanted a statement, so in a burst of originality, I told them that I was aware of the changes, I supported them, and I am thrilled to be back home.

Kate: I'm thinking that being stranded on that island wasn't quite the ordeal that we thought it was. I am so happy for you. [Laughs]

André: Oh, hello. It seems that your daughter and yourself seem to be comfortably ensconced in the house of DiMera.

Gabi: Does that make you happy like Chad being happy makes you happy? You know, there were a lot of happiness in that brotherly love speech you gave in there.

André: Oh, I'm more than happy that my brother is back. Of course, but you've also seen I'm very protective of my little brother.

Gabi: And what does that mean?

André: It means that I'm putting you on notice. Watch your step, senorita.

Valerie: It's just so good to have you home safe.

Theo: Dad was so worried about you. Everyone was. I mean, weren't you scared?

Lani: Well, having your plane go down on a deserted island is no fun. Hey, so, um, dad tells me you and Claire are having some problems.

Theo: Yeah, yeah, um, actually Valerie and I were just talking, and she got me to see that I need to find a way to work through it. As a matter of fact, I do have to go, but--no, no, I'll see you tonight at dad's for our weekly dinner.

Lani: Okay. I can't wait.

Theo: Love you.

Lani: I love you too.

Theo: Bye, guys.

Valerie: Take care. I was just telling Theo how you had to wear me down to get to ride the school bus. And when I heard that, um, your plane had gone down... I just... I didn't know if you'd make it.

Eli: I heard you when I came in. I'm really sorry about that.

Valerie: Well, it's not your fault. I mean, the plane went down. There was nothing you could do about it.

Eli: Must have been hard for you not knowing if I was safe. I mean, especially the way that I left things.

Valerie: The way we left things.

Eli: No, mom. Come on. It was me. All the time when I was on that island, I thought about how I treated you. I'm sorry.

Valerie: Well... you're back now. And we have another chance. [Sighs]

Eli: I think we have a ways to go, but like I said before I left for Greece, I want to work on it. I want us to be family.

Valerie: We'll always... [Sobs]

Sonny: [Chuckles]

Victor: What's so funny?

Sonny: I just can't remember you ever caring about my moral life. I know I'm gonna have to make tough decisions, but I can make them without going down the rabbit hole. Plus, I have you and dad's help.

Victor: You can always run things by me and your father. There are gonna be times when you're gonna have to make split-second decisions.

Sonny: I know that.

Victor: Well, I just hope that you don't have to make as many unethical ones as I did.

Sonny: Me too.

Victor: You know, my critics would tell you that I'm a heartless man, cold and calculating.

Sonny: Ah, like Odysseus.

Victor: And like Odysseus, I have to live with the decisions that I made.

Sonny: Well, no offense, uncle Vic, I know I have tough choices to make, but I'm gonna forge a new road for titan, keep things above board.

Victor: Good luck with that.

Sonny: It's not a matter of luck. I know what I'm doing.

Kate: So, have you spoken to Abigail? And?

Chad: It didn't go well. She's moving on with Dario. I didn't handle it the way I would have liked to. Just not the way I imagined things going. But we have to do what's right for Thomas, so we're gonna make it work.

Kate: I know that you will. But right now, I'm just hoping you can focus on Gabi.

Gabi: You're putting me on notice?

André: I just don't think you're the right woman for Chad.

Gabi: Okay, well, first of all, I don't care what you think. And second of all, before you start rambling on about Abigail, Chad and I, we really did fight our feelings. But somehow, some way, no matter how hard we tried the universe kept pulling us together, so...

André: Oh. [Chuckles] This universal pull. What is it? Fate? Love?

Gabi: That's exactly what it is, André. And if you think that you can intervene, or try to keep us apart, be my guest. Oh, that's my daughter. It's always nice talking to you.

André: Yeah. Okay.

Julie: See, Valerie? I knew our Eli would come back to us. Oh! Your mother and I, we never gave up hope.

Eli: Wait. Are you saying you two buried the hatchet?

Valerie: That's right.

Julie: Life is short. Too short to carry a grudge in this family, and a family is what we are, we found out.


Julie: So, Eli. I have a family surprise for you. Would you like to see it?

Eli: Yeah.

Julie: Would you all like to see it?

Valerie: Show us the way.

Julie: Okay, come on. Come on, come on, come on.


[Door opening]

Theo: Hey, um... I was just wondering if we could talk. Um, okay, look. I know I said this before, but... look, I'm just really sorry. Okay, I should have believed you when you said you had nothing to do with that video. I hate that I didn't trust you.

Claire: [Sighs] No. No, you shouldn't have.

Theo: I shouldn't have what?

Claire: Trusted me.

Theo: Claire, what? No. That's not true. Look, I'm sorry, I--

Claire: Stop. Stop saying that, please. You're not the one who has to ask for forgiveness.

Theo: Claire, what are-- what are you talking about?

Claire: This is for you.

Gabi: Ariana woke up, so I'm gonna take her home. Will you tell Chad I say good-bye?

Kate: Yes, he's in the study. He's making some phone calls.

Gabi: Okay, thank you.

Kate: Gabi, um... you know, I just wanted to say how happy I am to see you and Chad close.

Gabi: Thank you. This whole thing's kind of new for us. I mean, being stuck on an island is one thing, but, getting back here and back to our lives, our kid, our families... just trying to take things slowly, you know,

Kate: So you're not going to be moving in?

Gabi: No, no, I think it's a little soon for that. I mean, if everything turns out the way I think it will, then we'll have time for that, you know?

Kate: Yeah. That's true. Absolutely. It's probably the wise thing to do. It's just that I would really love to have you and Ari living here.

Gabi: Thank you, but I don't think your husband shares the same feelings.

Kate: Well, the only one who really counts is Chad, right? And if he wants you here, that's all that matters.

Gabi: Thank you.

André: Hey, it's so good to have you back.

Chad: It's good to be back.

André: Oh, by the way, I was thinking about the string of bad luck that you had, what with the plane going down, jungle madness... you know, it's a good thing you didn't have that amulet with you. Things could have been worse.

Chad: Well, I did have it.

André: You lied to me?

Chad: What was I gonna do, with you going on about how it was cursed over and over--

André: Well, of course it was cursed. That's why the plane went down.

Chad: They can't prove that. That being said, it was the cause of a lot of problems, so I did have to bury it on the island, which wasn't easy for me because it was worth a lot of money.

André: Well, that's good. Let's hope that's the last that anyone ever sees of it.

Chad: Well, good.

André: Yeah.

Sonny: I will do things differently for this family. Titan will be stronger than ever. I am more than up for the challenge. I'm not afraid of a piece of jewelry. I'm not afraid of anything. Hi, I'm Paul

Julie: And here we are back in the living room, thus ending our tour of the martin house.

Eli: I didn't know this place belonged to my great-grandfather.

Julie: Yes, your great-grandfather built this place, and this is where your granddad grew up, and-- and isn't it beautiful?


Eli: Yeah, no, it really is.

Julie: Well, I hope you don't mind, I'm planning on throwing a welcome home party for you right here, you and everybody from the island.

Eli: Having it here will be a great surprise. So, the owner rents it out for private parties?

Julie: Well... that's up to you, Eli.

Eli: Me?

Julie: You own it.

Eli: What?

Julie: [Laughs] When the property came up for sale again, Doug and I bought it for you. Actually, we were working on this deal before you went to Greece. It's my heavy-handed way of just trying to keep you here in Salem.

Eli: [Laughs] I-- I don't know what to say.

Valerie: Julie, this is just so generous of you. But isn't it still a bed and breakfast?

Julie: Don't worry about it. Don't worry about that. We have somebody to take care of that. Darling, you don't even have to live here. Unless you want to. I just wanted you to have a piece of Salem history because it's your history. [Laughs]

Eli: I honestly cannot think of a better gift. Thank you.

Julie: You're welcome. You're welcome. Oh, gosh, I have an appointment with the caterer. We've got a party to plan.

Eli: Thank you.

Valerie: Wow. I did not see that coming.

Eli: Me either. It's not every day you get a welcome home surprise like this. Don't tell grandma, but I already received a pretty great gift today.

Valerie: Oh, me too, baby. Oh.


Theo: What's this?

Claire: That is the letter that Ciara wrote you. The one that you never got. Um... I took it, and I kept it, 'cause I was jealous of her. I'm not proud that I did what I did, and after you accused me of lying to you, um, I realized that there were some things that I have done that were not completely honest. After you read that, I don't know, you might hate me, but... if you don't, you know where to find me.

[Dramatic music]

André: Night cap.

Kate: Yes, husband.

André: Hmm. Usual?

Kate: You know me so well. I'm going to give you some advice.

André: Advice?

Kate: You need to lose your disdain for Gabi.

André: Disdain? Rather mild for the way I feel about that one.

Kate: Doesn't matter how you feel about her. Chad adores her. And if you make problems for her, he's going to make problems for you because that's the kind of guy he is.

André: You're absolutely right. I shall be the soul of discretion. Completely neutral on the subject.

Kate: Really. I can see those wheels turning in your head. You know, whatever you're thinking about doing, don't do it. Because a move against her is a move against him. And me.

[Dramatic music]

André: Well. This isn't over yet.

[Dramatic music]

Gabi: I think Ari has a crush on your driver.

Chad: Yeah, look how cute she is in that chauffeur hat. Everybody just loves her.

Gabi: I can't believe I get to take that littler girl home and tuck her in and give her a kiss good-night. I'm gonna go to sleep tonight counting my blessings.

Chad: I'll be counting mine. To a new beginning.

Gabi: [Laughs]

Chad: Bye.
