Episode #13120 ~ JJ is charged with murder; Sonny has a startling memory; Jennifer pleads with Chad to stop her daughter from marrying Dario; Dario asks Abigail to marry him right away.
Provided By SuzanneSonny: What are the advantages of the new hires? They won't have a personal agenda. As for the remaining staff, I am so proud of their dedication and hard work. I know that we got off to a rocky start, but I am confident, if we work together as a team, we will bring titan success it's never seen before.
Justin: Finally, a CEO I can be proud of, and he happens to be my son too.
Sonny: Yeah, well, you weren't so proud when I fired the 50 employees that Deimos hired in my first week.
Justin: Well, you asked me to reserve judgment until you had the chance to get settled, and now that you have, I can see that you're taking titan in the right direction.
Sonny: Well, thank you for the support--from you and uncle vic. It means a lot to me. With Deimos out of the picture for good, nothing's gonna stop me from achieving everything I set my mind to.
Gabi: I still can't believe he's really dead.
Rafe: Well, I'm just sorry you had to be the one to find him.
Gabi: Yeah, yeah, I could've done without Deimos' dead body appearing and shocking the hell out of me. But you know what? After everything that he's put me through, what I can't stand is that JJ is being held for his murder. And until the police--
Gabi: Have evidence to prove that, there's no way that I will ever believe it.
Jennifer: I don't understand how they can hold you here without any solid proof.
JJ: Lani's account of me attacking Deimos--it's pretty damning, mom.
Abigail: She was high on halo like everybody else. No one was thinking straight.
JJ: The guy's blood's on my shirt. I keep thinking if I did kill him, I'd at least remember shoving that knife in his chest.
Jennifer: Right, you don't remember because you didn't do it.
JJ: Look, I appreciate your faith in me, both of you, but knowing how much I hated this guy, I can't help but think it's possible I did kill him.
Chad: [Sighs] Do you want to be my wife?
Chad: Why can't I stop thinking about her?
Rafe: Listen, as far as I know, JJ hasn't been charged with anything, and Trask-- I doubt she can even make a case with the evidence that she has.
Gabi: And you don't think Lani's testimony's damning enough?
Rafe: Lani was drugged just like everyone else.
Gabi: Okay, but what about the blood on JJ's shirt?
Rafe: The blood on his shirt, come on. You know, a halfway decent defense attorney could come up with 100 reasons as to why it was there.
Gabi: Do you think he did it?
Rafe: I don't know. Honestly, I don't know. But even if he did, he was under the influence of a hallucinogen, so he might not be held accountable.
Gabi: Okay, but listen, even if he was following orders or acting to protect some sort of innocent party, it--the guilt of killing a living soul-- I mean, I--I've seen the man be upset because he couldn't help a victim because he didn't have time for them, maybe because he couldn't, and-- why are you looking at me like that, Rafe?
Rafe: Just sounds to me like you still have feelings for the guy.
JJ: The reason I became a cop was the protect the people I love. And I thought, when I became a detective, I'd finally be able to bring down Deimos. Guess in--in the end, even dead, he ended up taking me down.
Dario: Hey, um...
Abigail: Dario, um, what are you doing here?
Dario: I'm so sorry to interrupt, but I need to speak to you. It's important.
Jennifer: This is important too--
Abigail: Mom, please.
Um... I'll be right back, okay? I promise--I'll be right back.
Jennifer: We're both alike, you and I. I will do whatever it takes to keep the people I love safe.
JJ: Are you talking about me now, mom, or Abigail?
Abigail: I don't know what this is about, but I really need to be in there with my brother.
Dario: I know you're worried about your brother, and I am sorry to take you away from him, but for me this is a question of survival, of life and death.
Abigail: What do you mean? What happened?
Dario: I--I can't talk to you about it here. Will you--will you please come with me?
Abigail: Thank you.
So I just learned that check on me sooner than later.
Abigail: How soon?
Dario: I don't know. Could be tomorrow. Could be today. Since they've gotten more aggressive with the laws, they've amped up the screening process, so if they sense that something's not 100% legitimate, they can just arrest and deport me on the spot.
Abigail: And if you're deported, um...
Dario: Yeah, I'm pretty sure my Mexican drug lord pal will be waiting to take me out the minute I cross the border.
Dario: Which is why it would be better, if the officials do come and check on me, that we are already married.
Abigail: My brother is being accused of murder. I can't really just run off and get married.
Dario: I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. The timing...sucks. But if I get kicked out of the country, I'm not gonna have a future.
Abigail: Yeah, I get that, but I just can't do-- I can't do that.
Dario: Having a five-minute ceremony isn't gonna stop you from being there for your brother.
Abigail: I--I know, but I j-- I mean, it's just the idea. I mean, the idea that I would run off and do something that is supposed to be joyous and life-affirming, but meanwhile, my family's going through hell--
Dario: W--okay, but would it--would it help them if you deny yourself that joy?
Abigail: Okay, I'm sorry, did you say deny myself joy? This isn't a real marriage. It's--this isn't going to bring me any joy in the least, and, I mean, I'm sorry if that sounds harsh, but I ca--
Dario: No, I get it. I--I understand. And I didn't mean that it would bring you actual joy. What I meant was it wouldn't be so strange if you were to do something positive and life-affirming, like you said, while your brother's going through this rough time. I mean, you could use it maybe as a way to lessen the pain. People do that all the time.
Abigail: Oh, come on. You know damn well nobody is gonna look at a marriage between you and me as a joyous, life-affirming occasion. It's...
Dario: Yeah. I suppose not. That's not it, is it?
Abigail: What's not it?
Dario: You caring about what other people think-- that's not you. Maybe you're having cold feet.
Abigail, I've told you before, if you've changed your mind, I'll understand. But I need to know, and I need to know now, if you will marry me today.
Gabi: Rafe, you know how some drugs make you say or do something that you normally don't do?
Rafe: Oh, boy, did you-- did you do something when you were on halo that you regret?
Gabi: I didn't stab Deimos if that's what you're asking me, no.
Rafe: That's not what I'm asking. Gabi...
Gabi: I danced, okay?
Gabi: Yes, yes.
Rafe: You mean, like you danced on the table?
Gabi: No, I danced with JJ.
Rafe: So what's wrong with that?
Gabi: It wasn't--it wasn't the dance part, that was-- I don't know.
Rafe: What--what part was it? Do I even--do I want to know?
Gabi: No, it was the way he made me feel when he was holding me. I felt like I was just ali-- I don't--it sounds-- this is weird, but it was--
Rafe: Sounds intense, huh?
Gabi: Yes, it was intense. It was intense because, at that moment, I felt like I was still in love with him, okay?
JJ: This is the last thing you need, I know.
Jennifer: Mm-mm, don't you worry about me, 'cause I'm fine. And you will be too once-- once the police see that you're innocent.
JJ: I know you want to believe that.
Jennifer: 'Cause it's true. I gonna make some calls, but I will be--I'll be right out here, okay?
Hope: Oh, Jenn.
Jennifer: Oh, my goodness, thank god that security footage exonerated you and Rafe. Wait, what are you doing here?
Hope: Well, my job, I hope.
Jennifer: No, they said that you were in the hospital. They would've have released you this quickly.
Hope: Well, they didn't. I snuck out.
Jennifer: Wait, you what?
Hope: I snuck out.
Jennifer: Why would you do that?
Hope: 'Cause I need to be here for you and JJ.
Jennifer: No, you need to be in the hospital. I'm taking you back there.
Hope: No, Jenn, listen, I need to make sure the whole truth, the real truth, comes out about everything and make it very clear that a crime was committed under extraordinary circumstances--
Jennifer: Wait, you mean because everyone was on halo, right?
Justin: I'm headed over to the police station right now to represent JJ. I'll do everything in my power to free him.
Sonny: I just wish I could do more to help JJ. But unfortunately, I just don't remember anything about-- I'm gonna have you arrested!
Deimos: You know what? That's almost as funny as you running titan. You don't wanna make this any harder than it has to be. You can either give me the amulet, or I can take it from you.
Justin: Sonny? You okay?
Sonny: Yeah, I'm good. I'm just--I'm just-- I'm just fuzzy from the halo, I guess, you know? But I'm happy that you're helping out JJ. I think that's great, and I'm sure you're gonna prove that he didn't kill Deimos.
Justin: Yeah, I hope you're right.
Sonny: Is it possible that I-- no, no, no, no, I would've remembered if I had.
Paul: Remember what?
Sonny: How long you been standing there?
Paul: Long enough to see that something's bothering you. You wanna tell me what it is?
Sonny: It's just work.
Paul: You're not planning on doing another mass firing, are you?
Sonny: No, no, no, as strongly as I felt about getting rid of all the people that Deimos hired, it's hitting me now just how jarring that was for the company, and I need to be extremely careful with the decisions that I make moving forward.
Paul: Well, I knew you'd come back to me.
Sonny: Yeah, where did I go?
Paul: To the mother ship, I thought. You know, I was starting to think that the sonny I knew had been taken over by aliens.
Sonny: Come on, I wasn't that bad.
Paul: Maybe. But, you know, standing here, spouting logic and reason, it's a far cry from the power-hungry despot who wanted to take over the world and didn't give a damn who he trampled along the way.
Sonny: Luckily, I have you to keep my ambitions in check.
Paul: Well, I'm glad I'm here. I'm glad I'm good for something.
Sonny: You're good for a lot of things, Paul.
Paul: What is it?
Sonny: I don't want to lie to you.
Paul: Then don't.
Sonny: I remembered something from last night.
Paul: I'm listening.
Sonny: I was arguing with Deimos in the corridor. And ripped the amulet from my neck.
Paul: Then what?
Sonny: Nothing. I can't remember past that. I don't know.
Paul: Okay, okay, maybe you didn't argue at all.
Sonny: What do you mean?
Paul: Well, because of the drugs, maybe your mind conjured up a memory. Look, look, either way, you said that you were arguing with him in the hallway, but they find Deimos killed in the living room. I mean, there's a time gap-- that someone could have stepped in.
Sonny: To finish the job? Is that what you mean?
Paul: Maybe. Now, now, now, you haven't shared this memory with anyone?
Sonny: No, no, no, only you. I wanted to keep it a secret. I'm just worried that JJ's being held under false pretenses.
Paul: No, I called my sources downtown. I mean, they barely have a case.
Sonny: Oh, so does that mean that he could be released?
Paul: Maybe by the end of the day. Okay, um, unless things change, let's--let's just keep this memory between us.
Rafe: So you're saying that you do still having feelings for JJ.
Gabi: No, it was just in the moment. It doesn't--it did not mean anything.
Rafe: Oh, 'cause when the drug wore off, then you didn't have those feelings. Is that what you're saying?
Gabi: No--JJ and I are in the past okay? And that's it. We're done.
Rafe: You're sure?
Gabi: Yes, I'm positive.
Gabi: Okay, I'm building a future with Chad, and I could not be happier.
Chad: Hi, how's--?
Chad: How's JJ's case coming along?
Jennifer: Uh, Hope is interviewing him right now.
Chad: Without a lawyer?
Jennifer: He decided he didn't want anyone to represent him in--for this preliminary interview.
Chad: Okay, w--if it's about money, then I-- anything I can do to help?
Jennifer: No, it's not-- oh, thanks, but Justin is gonna represent him, and, you know, give us the family discount, so he's on his way here now.
Chad: Okay. You sure there's nothing I can do?
Jennifer: Actually, there is something you can do.
Chad: All right, name it.
Jennifer: You can talk Abigail out of marrying Dario.
Chad: Uh, she divorced me, Jennifer, so not sure I have much of a say.
Jennifer: She loves you.
Chad: How do you know that?
Jennifer: I know-- I know that.
Chad: I'm with Gabi now, so.
Jennifer: That doesn't mean you still don't care about Abigail. And even if you never get back together, you still share a child, so I think that's reason enough--
Chad: Yeah, I--I know, of course I care--I care about Abigail, her happiness means everything.
Jennifer: Right, then why would you let her throw her life away and marry someone that is not right for her?
Chad: Everybody knows how I feel about Dario, but she's an adult--she's not gonna listen--
Jennifer: What, so do you think it's okay to just let her make this terrible choice?
Chad: Okay, you know what? I came here to talk to her about something that's not this, so, um... she's not with JJ anymore?
Jennifer: No, she was, and then Dario came by and said that he needed to talk to her.
Chad: She just left?
Jennifer: Yes, and he said it was something very important.
Jennifer: And so she's gone. I don't know where they went. Maybe the club? I have no idea.
Chad: Okay, the club, then I'm gonna go. Thank you. Thank you. Let me know if you need anything.
Abigail: Is this your way of testing me to see I'll really go through with this?
Dario: You didn't answer the question.
Abigail: I told you I would marry you--I announced it in front of my ex-husband. I don't really know what else you need.
Dario: I need to know that you'll do it today because, if immigration does pop in, I'll already be legal.
Abigail: Ugh, okay, but if they know that we are going to get married, then--
Dario: What's--what's the problem, Abigail? Is it Chad? Did something happen last night?
Abigail: Why would you ask me that?
Dario: Because other than you having cold feet or caring what people think, I can't think of any other reason of why you'd be hesitating right now.
Abigail: Nothing is going on with me and Chad, but if that is what you are worried about, then--
Dario: No, oh, no, no, no, I'm worried--I'm worried about getting deported. Okay, look, I know this is sudden, all right? But the fact that we don't have time to invite anyone, that I'm not gonna tux, that you're not gonna get a beautiful dress, should prove to you that this has nothing to do with romantic feelings on my part.
Abigail: But we can't just walk into a court and demand that a judge marries us-- we've got to have an appointment, there's the--
Dario: I--I already reached out to the courthouse to make an appointment in case you did say yes. Ugh. Courthouse is fully booked.
Abigail: What are you doing? What--?
Dario: I'm gonna see if he can marry us.
Abe: Why, hello. You know, there doesn't seem to be anyone here. Can you take my order?
Dario: Of course, and maybe, while you're waiting, you wouldn't mind doing a small favor for me and Abigail.
Abe: Well, how small?
Dario: By the power vested in you by the good people of this town, would you pronounce us husband and wife?
Let's party! you were--
Dario: In love? Well, no, we--we have been for a while. That's why we cannot wait any longer, because, you know what they say, once you've found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
Abe: Well, I wouldn't want it said that I stood in the way of true love, but, if the groom doesn't mind, I would like to hear from the bride-to-be as well.
Abigail, I would do anything for you and your family.
Abigail: I know that, yeah.
Abe: So before I do this, I want you to look me in the eye and answer one question. Is getting married to this young man, so soon after you got a divorce from Chad, is that what you really want?
Rafe: Well, you're not the only one who had a little halo-induced romantic moment last night.
Gabi: Really? You and hope danced too?
Rafe: Oh, yeah, we danced. Yeah, we did, and I asked her to marry me.
Gabi: What? No way.
Rafe: Yeah, way.
Gabi: Wait, Rafe, what did she say?
Rafe: Well, she seemed willing, it's just, um, there's a little hitch.
Gabi: What do you--? Okay, let me guess. You think because she was high on halo that she didn't mean it?
Rafe: No, that's not what I think at all. She seemed like she was totally genuine--it's just that she wants closure in Bo's death. And the only way she feels she's gonna get that and get justice for him is by taking care of Deimos.
Gabi: I mean, the guy's dead. It sounds like justice to me, you know?
Rafe: Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking.
Gabi: Okay, and?
Rafe: Okay, yes. So I'm gonna propose again.
Rafe: But I need your help.
Chad: What--you got--you got the amulet now, you can't say hello anymore?
Sonny: Well, you obviously didn't want it, or you wouldn't have buried it in the sand.
Chad: I buried that thing for a good reason.
Sonny: Well, I can think of 20 million good reasons to dig it up, and that's what I did.
Chad: Fair. I didn't believe that thing was cursed either, but I'm telling you, it's wicked, all right? And the--the party last night-- proof.
Sonny: So you're blaming the amulet for Deimos drugging all those people?
Chad: Yeah, he obviously wanted it, and drugging us was just the way he chose to do it.
Sonny: Well, if it is bad luck, then Deimos is the ultimate victim of the curse 'cause he was the last person to have his hands on it, and now he's dead.
Chad: Uh, no, except Deimos isn't the only victim because JJ's life hangs in the balance.
Hope: This is what we know for sure. Lani claims that she saw you attack Deimos.
Justin: A memory that is highly suspect, since she was also under the influence of halo.
Hope: Yeah, but there's also the issue of the blood on his shirt from Deimos.
Justin: Strictly circumstantial--could have happened any number of ways.
Hope: Well, that is all we have so far.
Justin: In other words, you have no case.
Hope: And if there is no new evidence that comes to light in the next hour or so, the Salem pd will have no choice but to let you go. Until then, sit tight, and hope for the best. Maybe even say a few prayers.
Justin: Looks like you're pretty much off the hook.
JJ: We'll see.
Justin: Didn't you just hear what hope said? They have no case against you.
JJ: So far. But even if I'm not the one who stuck that knife in Deimos' chest, one of us did.
She's nationally recognized thing about picking out women's jewelry, let alone the most important piece of jewelry that a woman could own.
Gabi: Come on, you don't have to worry--I mean, your stylist little sister is going to help you, and I'm not gonna disappoint, okay? Oh, I saw something in Janet's window that's perfect.
Gabi: Yes, I did, yeah.
Rafe: Okay, but hope has to like it.
Gabi: Yeah, I mean, she's gonna love it. Not because it's a stunner-- it's because with it, she gets you.
Rafe: Yeah, she does. It's like a two for one bargain.
Gabi: Yeah, seriously. Look, it's really important to find the right ring, but it's more important to find the right guy. And hope did that. She chose you.
Rafe: That is very sweet of you.
Gabi: I love you.
Rafe: Now let's get out of here and find that perfect ring before someone else takes it, okay?
Gabi: Let's go to Janet's.
Sonny: I'm confident JJ will be cleared. My dad's working on getting him released right now.
Chad: Yeah, so the, what, evidence is circumstantial?
Sonny: I mean, thanks to Deimos, none of us remember what happened.
Chad: Except for Lani. She saw JJ attack him.
Sonny: And maybe she did. Maybe it was the halo remembering. The bottom line here-- we might never remember who killed that son of a bitch.
Chad: Who cares? Deimos has himself to thank for it.
Sonny: It's kind of fitting, isn't it? The victim's own action providing a cover for the killer?
Chad: Yeah, well, yeah, I wouldn't say that maybe, you know, it won't come back to haunt someone.
Sonny: I mean, not as long as our memories don't come back.
Chad: Yeah, I'm glad he's gone--along with the amulet.
Sonny: That thing really spooks you, doesn't it?
Chad: Yeah, that's what I get for not buying into my father's superstitions.
Sonny: Yeah, he did have a few that were out there, even for Stefano.
Chad: For good reason.
Sonny: You think?
Chad: Yes. I never believed in luck. I believed that if you--if you wanted something, you would just go out, and you would take it.
Sonny: And now?
Chad: I don't know. I'm starting to think that maybe we don't have as much control over our lives as we'd like to believe.
Abigail: My marriage to Chad was over long before we actually made it official, and I want to marry Dario. And it would be really great to have somebody that I knew do it, but I understand if that makes you uncomfortable in any way.
Abe: Yeah, well, I'm going to call Jennifer to see if she's okay with this.
Abigail: I am an adult, and I think she's kind of busy with JJ right now, so.
Abe: I'm not going to perform the ceremony without talking to your mother first. In fact, I'll give her a call right now, so, excuse me.
Gabi: Listen, I want you to like it too, okay? We're gonna go through a lot of them, and we're gonna find exactly the right one.
Rafe: Mm-hmm, definitely, definitely.
Rafe: The right one.
Gabi: Oh, well, this is a surprise.
Chad: Hey, good one, I hope.
Gabi: Of course.
Rafe: Hey, take it easy. Why are you here?
Sonny: Hey, sorry, I was gonna call--I was gonna call you and talk to you earlier today. I need to reschedule that play date with Arianna for next week, if that's okay. I'm just really swamped with work right now.
Gabi: Yeah, I mean, just let me know what day works for you.
Sonny: All right, perfect. I'm gonna head back to work, and I will check my schedule and get back to you on that.
Gabi: Okay, good to see you.
Rafe: See you.
Chad: Where are you two headed?
Rafe: Where are we--? Uh, we're just--she's doing a little secret thing, helping me out.
Gabi: Yeah, but I can meet up with you after coffee, if that's okay.
Chad: Great, I got my own secret thing happening.
Chad: Just kidding, no, I'm heading over to club TBD, actually, to talk to Abigail.
Gabi: Everything okay?
Chad: Yeah, no, we're just working out Thomas' schedule.
Gabi: Okay, well, we could probably meet you up at the club when we're finished.
Gabi: All right, I'll see you.
Abe: I spoke to your mother.
Abe: She gave her blessing.
Abe: Grudgingly--she didn't sound too happy about it.
Abigail: Well, she will be. Eventually.
Abe: All right. Well, let's do this. I don't carry a wedding manual around with me, but I am going to try to do the ceremony from memory. And, given the hasty nature of this ceremony, I don't suppose you two have written vows.
Dario: I--I actually have something I want to say, if that's okay with you.
Abigail: Of course.
Dario: You're so beautiful. You are so beautiful, inside and out. How smart, funny, and brave you are. But what I love most about you is your generosity, and I've seen firsthand how you give yourself completely to the things that matter most. Your family, friends, people you care about. You never hold back. You don't hesitate. When you see somebody in trouble, you're right there, putting their needs before your own, doing whatever it takes to make sure that they're protected, safe, happy. No matter what it costs you. My vow is to love you with the same generous spirit you've always shown me, to put you first. And to prove to you every moment of every day that I am worthy of all the times you've done that for me.
Dario: You don't have to say anything.
Abigail: Oh, no, um, yeah, no, um... I'll say something, um... [Clears throat] [Exhales] You know, um, everything that you say that I--I did for you, you did for me. You were there for me when-- when no one else was, and I never really felt like I had to explain myself, even-- when things were kind of crazy. You just let me be who I am, and that really meant a lot to me.
JJ: Those my release papers? Justin said I'd be able to go home within the hour.
Hope: No, I'm sorry.
JJ: For what? What's wrong?
Hope: These aren't your release papers. This is a record of new evidence in the case against you.
JJ: I don't believe it. They found my DNA underneath Deimos' fingernails?
Hope: Which confirms Lani's testimony that you did, in fact, engage in a physical altercation with the victim. JJ, the fact that you were under the influence of a hallucinogenic drug...
JJ: Was an extenuating circumstance, I know.
Hope: One the judge will hopefully take into account.
You know, I don't want to do this, but because of the new DNA evidence, we're gonna have to charge you with--
JJ: With murder.
Hope: 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 cannot afford one, one... one will be provided. Do you understand the rights I just recited to you?
Sonny: [Gasping] Oh, my god. Oh, my god.
Dario: I will love, cherish, honor, and keep you all the days of my life.
Abe: Abigail, would you repeat after me: I, Abigail Deveraux, take you, Dario Hernandez...
Abigail: I, Abigail Dev...
