Lani: I'm sorry. I can't get comfortable.
Jj: Hey... it's okay. I know you're worried about your dad.
Lani: And I'm furious with eli. The guy...totally used me. He recruited me to work with him, knowing full well that he was gonna arrest my father. I will never forgive him for that.
Eli: Come on, hope. Call.
Valerie: Back at the scene of the crime... where you had an innocent man arrested.
Eli: Mom, we don't know if abe is innocent.
Valerie: Oh, would that even matter to you...guilty, innocent? Just as long as you're racking up your quota for the bureau.
Eli: That's not what this is.
Valerie: How does it feel, son... that a decent, innocent man is in jail? That his career, his relationship with his own son could be ruined because of you?
Hope: We'd skip the cuffs, but just in case we run into raines, we don't want to have any problems.
Abe: Well, if it helps trap this sob, I am happy to wear them.
Rafe: I still can't believe that raines is my brother's silent partner.
Abe: Well, we're gonna need more than dario's word to put this...guy away.
Raines: What's going on here?
Maggie: I don't believe he's guilty. And the thought of that decent, honorable man spending another night in jail?
Justin: Well, since there's no evidence to back up dario's claim, abe should be released in the morning.
Maggie: [Exhales] Well, thank god. Between him and chad and sonny, that is the third innocent man the salem pd have arrested this month?
Victor: I'm just glad sonny was released.
Maggie: Yeah. And now he's engaged...to paul.
Justin: Sonny told me and his mother earlier. We couldn't be happier. I actually have some, uh, very good news of my own. Adrienne and I... we're back together.
Anjelica: Give it--
Hattie: Stop it! Stop it!
Bonnie: No, give it to me-- givin' up, anj?
Hattie: I-I think she definitely gave it up.
Bonnie: What do you mean?
[Lightly suspenseful music]
Hattie: She's dead.
Bonnie: No way!
Bonnie: Okay--do something! Give her mouth-to-mouth! T-t-the chest-pumping thing!
Hattie: T-that chest-pumping thing is called cpr, and I don't do that! I'm not a doctor. I just play one in salem. I'm afraid anjelica devereaux... is dead.
[Lightly tense music]
Both: This is all your fault!
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Victor: Are you serious?
Justin: Yes. I am. Actually, it was a surprise to me too. But, I am very, very happy about it. And before you start making some disparaging comment about how adrienne is being--
Victor: Oh, come on, justin. You don't have to defend your decisions.
Justin: Well, that's a first.
Victor: Well, listen. She's the love of your life, mother of your children. You wanna be with her, that's your business.
Justin: I almost believe you mean that.
Victor: Now, listen, I may not have always agreed with my family members when it comes to husbands and wives and partners and whatnot. But...if they're happy... none of my business.
Maggie: What about lucas? The last time I saw him, he was in such good spirits. He said he was just a lucky guy to have adrienne in his life. So how could adrienne have such a change of heart so suddenly?
Justin: Maggie... all I know is that adrienne came to me and told me that she had broken up with lucas and that she was still in love with me. Now, maybe it was because she and I spent so much time together during sonny's incarceration. But whatever the reason... she's made her decision. And, uh, like I said... I'm very happy about it.
Maggie: I'm sorry. I don't mean to be negative about this, justin. It's just that lucas has suffered so much these past few years. He's lost so many people that he's loved. And, yes, I'm afraid of what this might do to him.
Bonnie: What do you mean, this is all my fault?
Hattie: You're the one that-- that sent her blood pressure sky high by having your way with that tom cruise look-alike.
Bonnie: What? Her bp was already through the roof because you led john black back to marlena!
Hattie: Okay, wait. Stop.
Hattie: There's no sense in fighting about this. Now anjelica has cashed in her chips...and she's probably stirring up trouble in the afterlife.
Bonnie: I can't believe it! I mean, five minutes ago, she was threatening to blow the whistle on us for switching places with adrienne and marlena, and then...
Hattie: Yeah. And going on and on about that greek god of hers. Maybe that's what made her heart stop.
Bonnie: [Sighs] So what do we do now, call 911?
Hattie: Well, I've never seen an emt that could bring a dead person back to life.
Bonnie: I guess we call the cops then.
Hattie: No! No, no, no. No, no, we can't do that.
Raines: What do you and hernandez think you're doing?
Hope: We wanna question abe again. Sir, we've been friends for a really long time. We're hoping he'll trust us enough to come clean. Waive counsel.
Raines: That's fine. But don't waste your time.
Hope: If we don't get something more on him by morning...he's walking. It's worth a try, don't you think?
Raines: Suit yourself. I have an errand to run.
Valerie: And it's not just abe's life turned upside down. I've got reporters camped outside my house and my office, ready to harass me any chance they get.
Eli: Mom, the last thing that I wanted to see was you hurt. But I have a job to do--
[Phone rings] I gotta take this.
[Phone beeps] Yeah, what's up?
Hope: Raines is on the move.
Eli: I'm on it.
I make it easy to save $600 on car insurance,
Eli: Sorry, mom. It's important--I gotta go.
Valerie: What, are you off to try to dig up some more dirt on abe? Well, good luck with that. Justin kiriakis is his lawyer, and he's confident that abe will be released in the morning.
Eli: Believe it or not, mom, I really hope that you're right.
Hope: Eli's on his tail.
Abe: Sounds like the plan's in motion.
Rafe: I was just telling abe how much we hated having to arrest him in public.
Hope: Yeah, sorry, abe. We just couldn't risk letting valerie in on the truth. Although I'm much more concerned about lani. She's not gonna let this go.
Abe: Well, I hate keeping either one of them in the dark. Thank god they're both standing by me, regardless. It--it... it's killing me that theo thinks it's possible that I might actually be guilty.
Rafe: Listen, we wish that there had been another way. But eli was very adamant that this was the only way to bring raines down.
Abe: Well, don't blame yourselves for any of this. Especially when this was all my idea.
Jj: I wish there was more i could do.
Lani: Me too. But since the suspect is my father...
Jj: I know we're not allowed anywhere near the case, but... lani, the more I been thinking about it, this whole thing just doesn't add up.
Lani: Like what?
Jj: Like eli. I'm not a fan of the guy, but i always thought that he was smart.
Lani: No question.
Jj: So why would he just accept the most stand-up guy in town--your dad--as dario's counterfeiting partner?
Lani: I've been wondering the same thing. Especially since there's no evidence against him.
Jj: There's no evidence against anyone because someone tried to mow dario down before he could turn it in. Which almost killed my sister. You know, and that's another thing that doesn't strike twelve, because abe would never be part of a move like that.
Lani: Everybody knows that. Including hope and rafe who are out there right now trying to dig up dirt against him. Their great friend for so many years.
Jj: Maybe we should do some digging of our own.
Lani: Raines already threatened termination twice. If we do anything related to that case...we'll be breaking the rules.
Jj: That's never stopped me before.
Justin: Maggie...I feel awful for lucas too. But it's not like he didn't know that adrienne and I have...a long history together. We have four children.
Victor: Aren't you the one that always said it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind?
Maggie: [Laughs] When it comes to deciding what dress to wear to dinner... not who she chooses to spend the rest of her life with.
Victor: Well, since it was kind of sudden, justin, maybe it might not be a bad idea to... take it a little slow at first.
Justin: Actually, um, with all due respect, um... slowly is not an option. In fact, that's what I wanted to talk to you two about.
Victor: Oh, lord. I think I know what's coming.
Justin: Adrienne and I aren't just back together. She's moving in.
Hattie: No, no, honey, we can't call the cops.
Bonnie: Why not?
Hattie: Because if we do, they'll come and talk to us, andre not who we say we are, and then poofyou and me, e transport van to stateslle.
Bonnie:O what are we gonna do with her?
Abe: He'll call when he's got something. We've got it all planned out.
Rafe: So abe...your alliance with eli-- you never told us how that all came about.
Abe: Well, since eli had information that he couldn't share with the pd...
Eli: Truth is, I already know who dario's partner is.
Abe: I see. But you obviously can't share this information with the pd. But technically--
Eli: You're not in the department--I know. Which is why I'm here. Look, abe, as much as I hate to drag you into this, lani's involved now.
Abe: Lani's involved? How?
Eli: Dario's partner is commissioner raines.
Abe: What? A-are you sure?
Eli: Dario, when he gave up raines, I mean, he gave up enough information to convince me that he was telling the truth.
Abe: [Exhales] I can't believe it. Wait, wait, wait, wait. How--how does lani figure into all this?
Eli: Well, knowing that she's been working on the counterfeiting case with me, raines keeps pressuring her to tell him what she knows.
Abe: What does she know?
Eli: Next to nothing, at this point, but raines isn't buying it.
Abe: We have got...to flush this rat out--fast.
Eli: I agree. Hey, look, I've been toying around with an idea.
Abe: I'm listening.
Eli: If raines thinks that we have another suspect, he might make a move, try to make sure that that person takes the rap.
Abe: Giving himself away in the process.
Eli: Exactly. But this other suspect has to be big enough that the fbi would be willing to let dario go free in exchange.
Abe: How 'bout me? So... that's how I became the bait.
Rafe: Now let's reel him in.
Lani: I do not wanna get you in trouble, jj.
Jj: Abe has been a friend of my family forever. Hell, he is family. I will do whatever it takes to prove he's innocent.
Lani: Okay. So tell me what you're thinking.
Jj: Okay. For starters, it's not just eli going along with this that doesn't make sense. It's hope and rafe arresting him without even protesting.
Lani: Right. It was almost too easy for them.
Jj: Which makes me wonder if maybe they know something we don'T.
Lani: Like what?
Jj: Like there's no way your father's arrest will stick.
Lani: Yeah, but how would they know that?
Eli: Well, maybe rafe could tell that his brother was lying when he named your father.
Lani: But at that point, why wouldn't dario just tell the truth?
Eli: A lot of reasons. Bottom line...we know dario had to deliver someone important enough to justify the fbi putting him in witness protection.
Lani: And who's more important than salem's upstanding mayor?
Jj: Exactly. So why don't we try to find out who dario's real partner was? That I.T. Guy from the club, myron, he worked really closely with dario.
Lani: He already said he didn't know anything.
Jj: Then let's see if we can help him remember.
Raines: Myron. Commissioner raines.
Myron: Yeah, yeah. I know who you are. Hey, look, I already told the police I haven't heard from dario...and I sure as hell never knew anything about him working for the mayor, of all people.
Raines: So there's no evidence linking abe carver to the counterfeiting ring.
Myron: None that I know of.
Raines: Then get some.
Maggie: Well, that's a surprise.
Victor: Congratulations, justin. But, uh...maybe maggie's right about taking it a little slow at first.
Justin: Moving in was actually adrienne's idea.
[Laughs] She doesn't waste any time. So when is this move-in, uh, happening?
Justin: Well, if it's okay with the both of you...tonight.
Victor: Well, it doesn't matter to me.
Justin: Maggie? Is it okay with you?
Maggie: Like I said, it's, um, a little sudden, but if victor's all right with it, then I'm not gonna stand in your way.
Justin: Thank you. That's a relief. Adrienne is the love of my life, the mother of my children, and we're not just a couple. We're part of a family. And like I said, I couldn't be happier. I'm gonna go over to the hotel and surprise her with the good news. Thanks again.
Hattie: Okay, first--first we'll get a big bag, and we'll put her in it. And then we'll stick the bag in the elevator, and we'll take her down and we'll put her in the trunk of my car, and then we'll figure out a way to dump it.
Bonnie: Sounds like you're taking out the trash.
Hattie: Well, kinda, yeah. I mean, she wasn't very nice. Nobody liked her. No nobody's gonna miss her.
[Whispers] Oh, my god!
Hattie: [Whispers] Shh! Maybe he'll go back to sleep.
Lucas: Adrienne, what's going on?
When you're expecting
a little angel, be soft.
Eli: You two have to leave! Now!
Jj: Yo, we need to talk to myron.
Eli: You're not on this case. Raines finds out you're here, you'll both be fired.
Jj: We don't care.
Raines: I need something linking carver to the counterfeiting, and I need it first thing tomorrow.
Hope: We lit a fire under raines by reminding him that if we don't have anything more on you by morning, the charges'll be dropped and you'll walk.
Abe: That should make raines worried that the fbi will start looking for another suspect.
Rafe: Mm-hmm. And he'll be desperate enough to make a move and make sure the charges against you are filed.
Hope: And that's when we'll nail him.
Myron: Okay, I get that you're anxious to make a name for yourself as salem's new commissioner, but unfortunately for you, my lawyer told me to keep my hands clean and my mouth shut. I'm not about to risk that deal he made for me just so you can be named commissioner of the year.
Raines: So you're missing my point, myron. Let me be clear. Crystal. This is not a request.
Hope: Eli is on raines's tail as we speak.
Myron: I'm sorry. What did you say?
Raines: You must have heard what happened to abigail devereaux recently.
Myron: Uh, the hit and run driver put her in the hospital.
Raines: Yeah. Poor girl. Wouldn't want something like that to happen to you.
Myron: But why would anything happen to me? Wait. Are you-- is that a threat?
Raines: [Chuckles] If I were you, myron, I would be very careful.
Myron: Oh, my god. Maybe you're not trying to nail the guilty man. Maybe you're trying to frame an innocent one.
Raines: Now you're catching on, myron.
Lucas: What's goin' on?
Bonnie: Oh, baby. Oh, baby, baby, baby. Everything's fine, honey. No, just go back to sleep. It's okay.
Lucas: I heard voices.
Bonnie: Oh, must have been the tv.
Lucas: Uh...tv's not on.
Bonnie: Oh, baby, you're exhausted, and you had a little bit too much to drink. You just need to go nigh-nigh. Nigh-nigh, baby.
Lucas: You always take such good care of me.
Bonnie: Oh, baby, you know it, just--that's it. Shh.
Hattie: [Whispers] I'm gonna get the bag.
[Knock at door]
Justin: Adrienne. It's me, justin.
This rich, creamy,
meticulously crafted ice cream
Hattie: [Softly] Get him out of here--now!
Hattie: I don't know, I don't know--tell him you've got the black death and you're bleeding from the eyes and the nose and the ears--but get him gone!
Bonnie: Fine, fine, fine, fine--I'll handle it! Hey, justin, hey. What's up?
Justin: I got great news.
Bonnie: I could use some.
Justin: I just finished speaking to maggie and victor about you moving back in.
Bonnie: What did she--what did they have to say?
Justin: They're totally on board!
Bonnie: Really? Both of them?
Justin: Henderson is preparing for your return as we speak.
Bonnie: Well, that's excellent news!
Bonnie: Right! Let me pack up, and I'll meet you there.
Justin: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Why wait? I can help you pack up right now and we can head over there together.
Hope: Raines is a smart guy. What if he isn't buying any of this? What...what if he's figured out we're setting a trap?
Myron: You? You were dario's secret partner? Well, why did he say it was mayor carver?
Raines: Obviously, your boss is afraid of me. Afraid of retaliation. Against him, his family. Anyone associated with him.
Rafe: Thing is... raines knows you're not dario's partner. So why would he believe that he named you...instead of him?
Abe: Well, raines knows that dario's scared of him. And because of that, I think he'll buy that dario will give the fbi someone else to protect the people he loves.
Raines: Dario gave up mayor carver because he was scared someone he cared about might get hurt.
Myron: Like abigail... when she got hit by that car.
Raines: Aw...poor girl. It's lucky she escaped alive. But you, myron, you might not be so lucky.
Myron: All right, commissioner. I'll do whatever you want.
Raines: [Chuckles] Good man.
Jj: No, can't you see what a mess lani is over this? She knows her father's innocent and so do I. Now, if you go in there and question myron, he's gonna give you nothing but lies about abe. But since I am not on this case, I will do whatever it takes to get the truth outta that little geek.
Eli: You're not going anywhere near him!
Jj: Get your hands off me.
Eli: Listen, if you go in there...
Raines: What the hell are you doing here?
[Intense musical buildup]
Myron: I've got some files i need to save.
Lani: Pretty quiet for this time of night.
Raines: You didn't answer my question.
Lani: I came in for a drink.
Raines: Hmm. Of all the places...you come here? A place owned by your father's partner?
Lani: That didn't really occur to me.
Raines: You serious? You expect me to believe that you coming here has nothing to do with abe's case? 'Cause you're not on it? You're not going to be on it. Is that clear?
Eli: Jj, stop, all right? We need to let lani handle this alone.
Jj: Handle what? Myron? Guy's a lightweight.
Eli: Come on, please! All right? Lani's a smart cop. She's got good instincts. Let's just hope she figures out fast how to play this.
Jj: Play what? What are you talking about?
Eli: You gotta know that if i thought lani couldn't handle this... jj, we're right here, all right?
Jj: That's it, I'm going in.
Eli: No! You are a loose cannon! If I let you go in there, you're gonna blow this operation sky high!
Lani: I know I'm not on the case. That would be a big...conflict of interest.
Raines: I've warned you twice about you jeopardizing your position.
Lani: I heard you. Both times.
Raines: But you're still sticking around, sticking your nose in places you don't belong.
Lani: I told you, I came in for a drink. If that's a problem, I will go someplace else.
Raines: Don't mess up again, price. You will be sorry.
Jj: What happened? Did you talk to myron?
Eli: She'll explain later. We need to get out of here fast.
Lani: He's right. Just do what he says.
Victor: You still thinking about lucas?
Maggie: If you had seen his face... how happy he was when... when he talked about adrienne. I know adrienne has a history with justin. They have children together. But she... victor, she chose lucas. My god, he's been through so much with her. They both made a commitment to each other, victor.
Victor: But then... they did spend an awful lot of time together while sonny was in jail. Maybe the draw to justin was just a little too strong.
Maggie: [Exhales] I don't recall your being such a fan of the two of them. Why all of a sudden change of heart?
Victor: Well, as I said earlier, I just want my family to get along, be happy.
Maggie: Well, I do too. I do too. I just hope that lucas can deal with his rejection in a healthy way. And for justin's sake, I hope adrienne doesn't change her mind. Again.
[Lightly edgy music]
Bonnie: Maybe this moving in together right away wasn't such a good idea.
Justin: Whoa! Why wait? Sweetheart, I have missed you so much. We've spent so much time apart, I really don't think I could spend another night alone.
Bonnie: Um... you're right. You're right, why wait? You know what, I'll get the stuff later--let's just go.
Justin: Whoa! Adrienne, you're not even dressed.
Bonnie: Oh! Oh, my god. Oh, my god, what got into me? I got so excited about our new life together, I forgot I was still in my nighty.
Justin: Just let me in. I'll help you pack.
Bonnie: No. No, because if we go in there...we might never come out.
Justin: Would that be so bad?
Adrienne: Well, I don't want our first time to be there.
Justin: Our first time was a long time ago.
Bonnie: Yeah, but it's gonna feel like our first time after all this time. And justin, I want it to be special. So please, just...wait for me downstairs.
Bonnie: Thank you.
Justin: But don't be long.
Hattie: Hey, hey.
Hattie: What are you doing?
Bonnie: Well, I don't wanna keep him waiting.
Hattie: You don't have to move in with him. That was anjelica's plan. It isn't like she's gonna come back to life and make you do it.
Bonnie: True. But she was right about one thing--I really do want my revenge on maggie horton.
Hattie: You bet, baby. We're gonna get that. Don't you worry.
Bonnie: Right? And this is my only chance to get it!
Hattie: Okay, fine--we've gotta find a way to get rid of anjelica's body. Now we got justin waiting downstairs.
Bonnie: I've got it! You get rid of it after I leave. You, honey, are the professional, right? I gotta get downstairs.
[Lightly humorous music]
Lani: I was so not expecting that.
Jj: What was raines doing there anyway?
Lani: Questioning myron. That's what it looked like. And he was not happy to see me.
Jj: What did he say?
Lani: He threatened my job again, told me I wasn't on my dad's case and to steer clear.
Eli: Yeah, well, you never should've gone in there in the first place. I'm just glad you had the sense to get out of there fast.
Jj: You know what I don't get...why weren't you in there with raines instead of lurking around outside like you were spying on them or something?
Lani: I was wondering the same thing.
Eli: It's none of your business.
Jj: No, don't brush her off. This whole setup doesn't make sense to her or me. Just like the sudden arrest of salem's most upstanding citizen doesn'T...make...sense. Or that the two of salem's finest, who happen to be lifelong friends of the suspect, were conveniently on hand to make an arrest and did so without even a moment's hesitation. None of this strikes twelve.
Unless... unless you all know for sure that dario's silent partner isn't abe.
Hope: We'll be right outside.
Valerie: Thank you for letting me see him.
Abe: Ha. Ohh...
Valerie: How are-- how are you holding up?
Abe: Uh... well, three squares. A lot of down time. Can't complain. I'm kidding.
Valerie: Listen, I spoke with justin. He's sure that you'll be released tomorrow.
Abe: Well... we'll see.
Valerie: Abe, they have nothing on you. I don't even understand why you were even arrested. And I'm still furious with eli for leading that charge.
Abe: You know, I know how it is to have A...rift with your son. And I don't want that for you and eli.
Valerie: I don't believe this. Are you...defending him?
Eli: You got it all wrong.
Lani: No, you're the one who's wrong. It's bad enough that we were partners and you kept it from me that you were about to arrest my father. If you're now trying to keep the fact that you know he's innocent, you're worse than i thought.
Eli: This isn't personal, lani.
Lani: Really? Then why is my father sitting in jail because of you?
Jj: Hold on--would you two stop? I'm starting to think there actually might be a valid reason abe was arrested.
Eli: [Laughs] I don't have time for this.
Jj: Okay, yeah, well, you know, before you go, tell me why, when we showed up outside the club, you completely flipped out...accused us of screwing up a major investigation.
Eli: Because you had no business being there.
Jj: When you came outside of that club, you looked like you had seen a ghost.
Lani: Because raines--how intense he was, the way he threatened my job again.
Jj: We know dario had to turn in someone big enough and powerful enough to get him into witness protection. But we also know that abe is innocent.
Eli: What's your point, jj?
Jj: What if the reason raines pushed lani to spill what she knew about the dario case was because he wanted to know if she knew who was really behind the counterfeiting? What if dario's silent partner... is commissioner raines himself?
[Intense percussive music]
Raines: So how'd you make out with carver?
Hope: Well, you were right. We should have listened to you. A total waste of time.
Hope: He didn't admit to anything.
Rafe: Nope. Not a damn thing. And unless some new evidence comes out between now and the morning, we're gonna have to let him go.
Raines: Well...let's hope we find something by then.
Justin: Maggie, uncle vic.
Victor: Oh. Adrienne. Welcome.
Bonnie: Oh. Well, victor, thank you. Thank you so much. You have no idea how much i appreciate your hospitality.
Maggie: Hello, adrienne.
Bonnie: Maggie. I am so looking forward to spending time with you again. I have a feeling we're gonna have a lot of fun!
Maggie: [Small laugh]
Hattie: Well... this was easier than dragging her all the way to my car trunk. All righty. Good night, young lovers.
