Dario: Missed you this morning.

Abigail: Oh. You were... you were sleeping, and I didn't wanna wake you up.

Dario: Right. Well... I was gonna go for a run, but I could always make time for a quick breakfast with my... beautiful bride.

Abigail: Ah! What are you... doing? Sorry.

Dario: I thought we agreed to keep up appearances.

Abigail: I know, but no one's even looking.

Dario: Okay.

Jennifer: [Indistinct]

Dario: Hey. Good morning, Jennifer.

Jennifer: Dario. Will you be joining us for breakfast?

Dario: No. No, I'm actually gonna go for a run. I'll see you later.

[Soft music]

Abigail: Wow. You really made him feel welcome.

Jennifer: I asked if he wanted to join us for breakfast. How is that not welcoming? You know that I am not comfortable with this whole arrangement.

Abigail: Yeah, mom, you know what, I'm not either, but I'm adjusting and so I would really appreciate it if you would too.

Jennifer: Oh, really? Adjust to my daughter being in a loveless marriage? That is never gonna happen.

[Elevator bell dings]

[Both chuckling]

Tripp: Hey, sorry I'm late. I hope I didn't miss the--

Kayla: Oh, hey! No.

Steve: Hey.

Kayla: As a matter of fact, um, we have a little surprise for you.

Tripp: Oh, a gift. For me? It's--it's not my birthday.

Steve: Just open it.

Tripp: Wow! Mcat study guides.

Steve: Yeah.

Kayla: Yep. Look, I know that you haven't completely committed to pursuing a career in medicine, have expressed some interest. I mean, I'm not trying to be pushy or anything.

Tripp: No, no, you're never pushy. You've been great.

Kayla: Good. That's good. I wouldn't want you to feel pressured or anything.

Tripp: No, no, no, I-I-- I don't.

Kayla: Great. Well, that's great. So you know what? I could actually tutor you a couple hours a week. You know, maybe come over for dinner a couple nights a week or something like that. We'll get you ready for the next test date. I mean if you decide--I mean, if you decide to take the test.

Tripp: [Laughs] This is... this is so unexpected. Uh, thank you, both of you, uh... but I...I can't accept these.

Steve: Why not?

Tripp: Well, after seeing what you do, Kayla, like watching you...I'm just not sure being a doctor's the right thing for me.

[Soft music]

Jade: Thanks again for meeting me here.

Eric: It's not a problem.

Jade: I just kinda felt self-conscious as the Horton center. It's kinda formal, you know?

Eric: I understand.

Jade: It's much better here. It's more casual.

Eric: Definitely. So...what's going on?

Jade: I've just been... kinda stuck in my head since the last time we talked.

Eric: About Joey.

Jade: Yeah. And how I shouldn't make him or any other man the center of my universe. And...I think you might be right about that.

[Edgy music]

Abigail: Mom, we have been over this, okay? I'm helping out a friend. If I didn't marry Dario, he'd be on his way to Mexico where he's got a price on his head. I'm not gonna do that. [Sighs] What?

Jennifer: I mean, JJ just got out from under a charge of murdering Deimos Kiriakis, and now you are perpetuating a fraud on the U.S. Government. [Scoffs]

Abigail: I don't really see the analogy between my situation--

Jennifer: There's--there's none, there's no analogy. But don't you think that you deserve some joy after everything that you have been through? And you just keep putting yourself out there like this.

Abigail: Mom, I'm--

Jennifer: No, I'm not gonna stop. I can see it in your eyes. I can see the sadness, and that is what's breaking my heart. Can you please...reconsider this arrangement with Dario? Before it's too late, before something goes horribly wrong.

Kayla: I don't understand what you mean, after seeing what I do.

Tripp: I-I just, uh... you're so smart and so kind, and being a doctor takes a lot of study and dedication, and I'm just not sure I could ever measure up, you know?

Steve: Tripp, listen. You know, it's understandable that you're feeling a little unsure of yourself, but I can't tell you how many times she's told me that you really do have what it takes.

Tripp: She's kind of prejudiced, though, right? Me being family and all.

Kayla: No. I am not being prejudiced, not in the least. I am being absolutely objective when I say that you are smart and you're quick and you empathize with the patients. That isn't something that can be taught. It's a gift.

Steve: Listen... you don't have to make a decision right now, okay? Why don't you just look over the study guides and think a little bit more about what you wanna do.

Kayla: You know what? I'm right here. So if you have any questions or you wanna talk about it...okay?

Steve: Son... you really should listen to Kayla, okay? 'Cause if she says you've got what it takes...pretty damn sure you've got what it takes. Okay? 'Cause in my experience, she's never wrong about anything.

[Kayla giggles]

[Soft music]

Jade: This thing is, I'm still in love with Joey, but we've been broken up for months, and I just don't see myself getting out of the friend zone with him. So...I've decided it's time to move on.

Eric: I think that's very wise. But just because you made up in your mind to let go, that doesn't mean your heart is ready to let go yet.

Jade: Right. Can't just turn off your feelings, can you?

Eric: No. Not in my experience.

Jade: So what do I do?

Eric: You find a way to put that energy into a new focus.

Jade: You know, I actually think I know what that focus might be.

Eric: Yeah? What's that?

Jade: My mom called last night and she told me that my grandmother passed away.

Eric: Jade, I'm so sorry.

Jade: Thanks. She was really old and she had been sick for months, so... it wasn't really a surprise. But nana...she was a force of nature. I really looked up to her. She never judged me. Or anyone else, for that matter. Kinda like you in that way. My mom is...a whole other story. But she did call me and ask if I'd spend the rest of the summer with her. Help clean out nana's cottage.

Eric: It sounds like she wants to spend some time with you.

Jade: Yeah. I guess after everything that's happened, she's realizing how important family really is.

Eric: I think you should take a chance. You should go for it.

Jade: Really?

Eric: Yeah, you know, just because people make it more challenging, that doesn't mean we should stop trying to love them.

Nicole: The Horton Center is a strong supporter for those in need, and I am more than happy to fulfill my community service with such a wonderful organization. Uh, yes...Eric Brady is my supervisor. No, there's no issues. Why? Have you heard otherwise? [Exhales] Well, we were engaged, but that was a long time ago. I assure you, Mrs. Simmons, that my past with Mr. Brady has no bearing on the work that I do at the center, which is very important to me because...I want to prove to Judge Thorpe that I am responsible enough to raise my daughter. Yes, yes, of course. You can stop by any time. Thank you.

[Soft music]

Nicole: Where did you go?

Eric: I think I did something bad.

[Phone rings]

Eric: Nicole. I didn't think I'd hear from you.

Nicole: I need to see you right now.

[Phone beeps]

Joey: Hey, I got your text. I'm so sorry about your grandma.

Jade: Thanks. That's actually part of the reason I need to talk to you. My mother wants me to go spend the summer with her... help get my grandmother's stuff in order.

Joey: Oh. Right.

Jade: But Joey... truth is, I would much rather stay here with you. And I would...if I thought that there was even a sliver... of hope for us.

Joey: I'll always care about you, Jade. What we had before... it's over.

[Somber music]

Think you should go and be with your mom.

Jade: You know what, Joey? I have been loyal to you... and I've loved you since day one, and what do I get in return? Dumped on the side of the road like trash. I even overlooked the fact that you killed someone in cold blood. You murdered Tripp's mother, and I kept my mouth shut--doesn't that count for something? Your brother would have destroyed you by now if he knew the truth--but I kept your dirty little secret. Maybe I was wrong about you. Maybe you're the one who's not worth it.

[Somber music]

Steve: So...just think about what Kayla said. Because, like I said, she...

Kayla: I am not always right. No one is. But I'll tell you something. I am right about this: You are smart, and you're good with people. Okay? But whatever you decide to do career-wise, your father and I are behind you a hundred percent.

Steve: That's right.

Tripp: Thank you, that-- that means a lot.

Steve: I gotta go help Joe fix his icemaker at the loft, but I just wanna tell you... makes me really happy that you two are getting closer. See you later.

Kayla: So, uh, you still gonna do rounds with me?

Tripp: Yeah, yeah, I am. I wanna see how Mr. Chancellor's doing after his surgery.

Kayla: Great! Well, I think that he's first up, so shall we?

Scott: Dr. Brady.

Kayla: Oh, hi, Scott.

Scott: I was looking for you.

Kayla: Yeah. Have you met my stepson Tripp?

Scott: No.

Kayla: This is Scott Mitchell--he's chairman of the hospital board.

Both: Nice to meet you.

Kayla: What can I do for you?

Scott: Well, before you go see your patients today... we need to talk.

Abigail: There's nothing to reconsider, mom. It's done.

Jennifer: Not necessarily. I can help you, honey.

Abigail: You know what I need from you, mom? I need your support. And you already promised that you would give it to me.

Jennifer: Yes, I did. But I cannot support you when I know that you're hurting.

Abigail: I can take care of myself, mom.

Jennifer: Yes, I know you can. But what concerns me is that you have not really thought about this. I mean, you married a man to help him out. Is Dario Hernandez really worth the trouble?

[Soft music]

Dario: Yeah, no, I want the full honeymoon package. I'll pay and do whatever it takes to give my bride the very best of everything. Okay. Yeah, make sure I get an updated itinerary in my email by the end of the day. Great.

[Phone beeps] Morning, Brady.

Brady: How you doing?

Dario: Great.

Brady: I, uh...sorry, I overheard--I hadn't realized you'd gotten married. Who's the lucky girl?

Dario: Abigail Deveraux.

[Dramatic music]

Nicole: Eric. There you are.

Eric: Hey, what's going on? Are you okay?

Nicole: Yeah, um... I remember something about that night.

Eric: What? What is it?

Nicole: I remember you saying did a bad thing. Eric, did you hear me? I said-- oh, my god, you remember, don't you?

Eric: Of course I do. It haunts me! What if the "bad thing" I did was sticking a knife into Deimos' heart?

[Dramatic musical buildup]

Nicole: Okay, we were under the influence of halo that night.

Eric: I had plenty of reasons to kill Deimos. He was responsible for Xander kidnapping you and me. He hurt people I loved.

Nicole: I know, but from what I remember, you didn't even know Deimos was at the party.

Eric: Maybe I learned he was there when you were in the bathroom.

[Edgy music]

Nicole: Yeah. When I splashed water on my face...but why?

Eric: Just talk this through. We had a toast...and then we were in my room.

[Edgy music]

Nicole: Then we imagined Daniel... talked about forgiveness, and then... [Gasps] Then I, uh... I gave Daniel a kiss good-bye. [Breathing hard] [Murmurs] I, uh...I need to go... splash some water on my face.

[Edgy music continues]

Brady: Hold on a second. You're married to Abigail? As in Chad's wife?

Dario: Uh, Chad's ex.

Look, man, I don't know what kinda game you're playing, but if something happens to her--

Dario: Abigail and I are in love.

Brady: Oh.

Dario: So you need to mind your own business. Speaking of businesses, shouldn't you be bothering some other people since the CEO of titan just got arrested for murder?

Brady: If anything happens to Jennifer's daughter... you're gonna answer to me.

[Soft dramatic music]

Abigail: I can't believe you'd even ask me that.

Jennifer: Is that an unfair question? You know the GDR has been involved in illegal activity--

Abigail: Yeah, but mom, that's Eduardo. That was Eduardo. He's the one who broke the law. It wasn't Dario--Dario's not his father, mom.

Jennifer: Abigail--

Abigail: He's a very decent and kind man who's always been there for me, and I know he would never do anything to hurt me.

Dario: Abigail's right. I'll never do anything... to hurt your daughter, Jennifer. That--that is a promise.

Jennifer: I really hope you mean that.

Dario: I don't make promises lightly.

Jennifer: I need to go. I'm late for a meeting.

[Edgy music]

Steve: There we go. Just a little adjustment, she's good as new. Should have plenty of ice in no time.

[Somber music]

You okay, son?

Joey: Oh, yeah. Yeah. I was just, uh...I was just going over my fall schedule before you got here and... I have to admit, I'm not feeling too inspired to...finish school.

Steve: Well, you feel like you're not gonna do well or... you're worried you'll flunk out? What? What's goin' on with you?

Joey: Just not feeling it, I guess.

Steve: Okay. You gotta finish school whether you're feeling it or not. Education is important. It's very important. You know that. It's not something you can just walk away from because you're not inspired or whatever. You gotta make it your business to get inspired. Do you understand me?

Joey: Yeah, I do. And I'm trying. But I have no idea what I wanna do with my life.

Steve: Well, that's okay. You're still young. You got plenty of time to figure that out.

Joey: Tons of people my age already know what they wanna do. Like Tripp.

Steve: one is comparing you to Tripp. Or to anyone else.

Joey: I know, but obviously, Tripp wants to be a doctor, you know? He's shadowing mom. She's really invested in his future. And that's fine. I'm happy for him. But he has a goal. He has...a direction.

Steve: Are you feeling jealous? That it?

Joey: I guess maybe I am. I'm not confident like Tripp. Sometimes I... wish I were more like him.

Scott: Kayla, we reviewed your cases of the past two months, and we've found another error in your notations... unfortunately.

Kayla: Who was the patient?

Scott: Warren Sherman. You were treating him for emphysema.

Kayla: That's right.

Scott: You prescribed morphine.

Kayla: It's part of the protocol.

Scott: Well, your dosage was well over the standard and may have Mr. Sherman's death. So the review board has launched a full investigation and, uh, until we have some answers... Seth burns and I have to suspend you. We have no choice. We'll put you on paid leave.

[Dramatic music]

Joey: I feel like such a loser...being jealous of my own brother. Being jealous of anyone.

Steve: Come on, Joe. You're human, aren't you? We all feel jealous at times. Competitive...want what the other guy has. Believe me, I've felt it plenty in my life.

Joey: Still, it seems so petty. I mean, I'm grateful to have an older brother. I really am. Tripp and I have been...getting along great. And...he's cool. He's easy to talk to.

Steve: I'm sure he feels the same way about you.

Joey: There's only so close Tripp and I can be. You know that.

Steve: [Sighs] Joe, I... I don't think that necessarily has to get in the way.

Joey: I killed his mom. Of course that gets in the way! Even if he doesn't know, hell, I know!

Steve: Of course you do. And you're right--how could it not get in the way? It was a stupid thing to say.

Joey: Even if Tripp never knows the truth... I have a feeling I'm not done paying for killing Ava.

Kayla: Um...I respect your decision. I understand.

Scott: I'm so sorry that it had to come to this, Kayla. [Sighs] I'll be in touch regarding scheduling your formal interview with the review board.

Kayla: And I'll arrange for someone to take over my duties as, uh, the chief of staff.

Scott: Appreciate that. Tripp.

[Dark music]

Tripp: Kayla, I'm--I'm so sorry.

Kayla: Yeah. Me, too.

[Tense music]

Nicole: [Whispering] You know, um... you said something... about maybe... having something to drink and that you didn't wanna go down that road again.

Eric: Right. And then I started talking about Daniel. I told you that I saw him, that I thought he was here, but obviously, I was hallucinating.

Nicole: I guess I was so high that just the suggestion of him being here... [Sighs] I saw him too... telling you to forgive yourself. Telling me to forgive you.

Eric: And then we kissed.

Nicole: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, I thought-- I thought you...were Daniel. I thought... I thought I was kissing Daniel.

Eric: When I told you I had done something bad... I don't think I was talking about Deimos. I was talking about...kissing my brother's girlfriend. So the question is... do we tell Brady?

[Somber music]

Brady: I'm actually glad that I went to a meeting today.

Jennifer: I know, me too. It always makes me feel calm, no matter how my day's going.

Brady: Exactly. And I've been swamped at titan, and the fallout of sonny's arrest. It's been nuts.

Jennifer: And that's the thing--when everything gets crazy, you need to make sure you go to the meetings.

Brady: That's right. And I know things have been... crazy for you. I'm aware of that and I know all about it.

Jennifer: You know all about what?

Brady: Ran into Dario today.

Jennifer: Oh. Lucky you.

Brady: Hmm. Yeah, he had some interesting news to share about he and Abigail being married. What--what is that all about?

Jennifer: I don't wanna talk about it, please.

Brady: So you don't approve, I assume?

Jennifer: That is an understatement, but Abigail's a grown woman. She can make her own choices.

Brady: Speaking of choices, it was interesting. You were in the meeting talking about...a guy that you had recently been seeing, and, for whatever reason, you two had to break up because you had decided it wasn't going to happen. You were talking about my brother Eric, weren't you?

[Soft instrumentation]

Nicole: I don't wanna lie to Brady. But if I do tell him, I know it'll hurt him terribly. Even if it meant nothing.

Eric: Right.

Nicole: But not telling him--I went through that with Daniel... never admitting that you and I... held each other the way we did when...when we were in danger, when we were...trying to keep each other alive. And then... I didn't tell Daniel, and I regretted that deeply.

Eric: Me too. And I don't want him thinking that baby--

Nicole: You know what, we don't need to talk about that. The point is Brady needs to know that we kissed that night, because I do not want history to repeat itself.

Dario: Thank you for... sticking up for me with your mom earlier. It means a lot to me that you believe in me.

[Soft piano]

Abigail: Yeah, actually, um...I didn't wanna say anything to her earlier because I think she's got a lot to deal with and I didn't want to worry her. But, um... I gotta be honest, Dario. [Sighs]

Dario: Okay.

Abigail: I'm having some serious doubts about all of this.

[Somber music]

Steve: Joe... I know you're still hurting over what happened with Ava. And I'll always carry the weight of that. But with time, it will get easier. I promise you that. And it's good you're still going to counseling. Keep doing that. And you know you've always got me and your mom to lean on. You know that, right?

Joey: Yeah, I know. I'm grateful for that.

Steve: Is there something else goin' on?

Joey: Yeah. It's Jade.

[Somber instrumentals]


Steve: She's leaving town? Well...that's good. I mean, I think she could, uh, benefit from some distance.

Joey: Yeah, yeah, I think she could too. But, uh... I'm gonna miss her.

I'm hungry.

Steve: Well, go make yourself something to eat.

Joey: You want anything?

Steve: No, no. No, thanks.

[Phone rings]


[Line ringing]


Steve: Hey, sweetness. How ya doing?

Kayla: Not good.

Steve: What's going on?

Kayla: I...I'm being, uh, suspended from the hospital, and, um, and they're going to investigate me.

Steve: Okay, you stay put. I'll be right there.

Kayla: [Whispers] Okay.

[Phone beeps]

[Heavy sigh]

[Emotional music]

Brady: I talked to my brother recently about you, you know. He was...pretty disappointed with the way in which things worked out. I think he was hoping that they would, I mean...

Jennifer: Yeah. I-I--me too. I just...I don't think... being in a relationship is in the cards for me anymore.

Brady: How can you even say something like that? That's crazy!

Jennifer: Brady, I have been so lucky. I had--I had one... great love in my life, and that was jack. And he gave me two beautiful, somewhat challenging, always amazing children, and I... am so grateful. I've had a full life.

Brady: Your life's not over yet, though. You're young. There's so much more to do. Don't ya think you might be able to give Eric another chance?

Eric: Brady was upset just hearing that.

Nicole: That you and I woke up together--I know.

Eric: And we assured him that nothing... nothing happened.

Nicole: Now we're gonna tell him that something did? Even though it was just a kiss? I mean, thank god we didn't-- it was--it was just a kiss.

Eric: Just a kiss.

[Edgy music]

Nicole: But still... he's...very sensitive to even the thought of my betraying him. I have to tell him we kissed.

[Soft music]

Dario: What are you worried about, Abigail?

Abigail: Look, I-I know what we are doing is not exactly on the up and up. Committing fraud is a very serious offense. But I have made a choice to help you because you've been a very good friend to me, very caring and very honest. You've always been very upfront with me about your intentions and your actions.

Dario: And I can't tell you how grateful I am for your help. And I promise that your faith in me will be rewarded. I'm not gonna...betray your trust or make you regret all that you've done for me.

Abigail: I hope not.

[Soft music]

Abigail: I've gotta go run a few errands.

Dario: 'Kay. I'm gonna head to the shower. I'll text you when I head over to the club.

Abigail: Sounds good.

[Lightly somber music]

Jennifer:'re such a good friend, and I know that... that you want me to have someone in my life. And I think that Eric is a great guy, I really do. I just don't...think that we're meant to be together.

Brady: Maybe you haven't given it enough...time. Give it some more time.

Jennifer: No, we--I have. We have, it's... but like I said, I care so much about him and I really want him to find happiness.

Brady: [Whispers] Okay.

Nicole: I can't lose Brady. And after what's happened with holly, I mean, there's only so much I can take.

[Edgy music]

Nicole: Feeling sorry for myself, in case you hadn't noticed.

Eric: No, you're entitled.

Nicole: No, I'm not entitled. I have so much to be grateful for...and I'm going to get my daughter back. I have the love of a great man. I can't--I can't lose that.

Eric: Nicole, are you gonna tell Brady the truth or not?

Dario: Yeah, no, it's all here. And no one's seen it. Only me. Yeah. Later.

[Lightly tense music]

[Dramatic musical flourish]

Kayla: Maybe I did enter the wrong dosage. Maybe it really is my fault that Mr. Sherman died.

Steve: Stop. Stop. You've gotta stop it.'re a good doctor. You're caring, you're conscientious. I know that. Everyone here knows that. Listen... we're gonna fight this. You got the best pi firm in town on retainer.

Kayla: I just don't know what's gonna happen to me.

Steve: You're gonna come out of this okay--that's what's gonna happen. You'll be vindicated.

Kayla: Maybe I don't deserve to be.

Steve: Hey, something's off here. I can feel it. You've been wronged. I don't know how or why...But I'm gonna find out. I'm gonna help you clear your name. Okay?

Jade: Hey. Thanks for meeting me.

Tripp: Yeah, sure. What's going on?

Jade: I'm taking off. I have to get out of Salem for the summer.

Tripp: What? Wait. You're supposed to help me take down Kayla and make her pay for what she's done.

Jade: I know, but I just really need to take care of myself right now. And I kinda get the feeling that you're having second thoughts on taking down Joey's mom? An attack of conscience? Am I right?

Tripp: Sometimes...I do feel sorry for her, yeah.

Jade: Yeah, I get that. Well, I should get back to the house. I have to start packing.

Tripp: All right.

Jade: Tripp. shouldn't destroy Kayla after all. I mean, I know that you wanna get back at her for your mom's death, but the thing is, she's not...

Tripp: She--she's--she's not what? What are you rambling on about? I mean...

[Suspenseful music]

Tripp: What are you not telling me, Jade?
