Episode #13227 ~ Eve demands to know if Brady is playing her; Will admits to Marlena that he kissed Paul again; Vivian has shocking news for everyone at the party; a drunken Ciara is determined to expose Rafe's secret.
Provided By SuzannePaul: What are you doing here? I thought you were at the party with sonny.
Will: Yeah, all partied out. I just thought I'd go home and...clear my head. What about you? What are you up to?
Paul: Oh, midnight fun run, and I am going to be late.
Will: Listen, um... I'm so sorry you'vbeen hurt, and I'm sorry that I'm a big part of the reason.
Paul: It's not your fault. It's no one's fault. It's just... I just miss sonny so much.
Ciara: What's the problem? I mean, you're the one who invited me to the stupid party in the first place.
Hope: Not to make a scene.
Ciara: I thought you'd be happy I showed up.
Hope: I didn't think you would show up drunk.
Ciara: Here comes the lecture.
Rafe: Yeah, you need to calm down and show your mom some respect.
Ciara: Respect? Is that what you show her, rafe, respect?
Rafe: Okay, you know, take it down a notch.
Ciara: You need to stop telling me what to do, all right? I am sick of listening to you. This time, you listen to me.
Paul: It's been nice, and I--I'M...I am now late.
["Auld lang syne" plays]
Chad: Happy new year, mrs. Dimera.
[Dramatic musical sting]
Vivian: Sorry I'm late.
You all look so surprised. Abigail, tell them. I did rsvp.
Abigail: That was you? You're "firebird."
Kate: Apparently "vulture" was already taken.
Vivian: Dear, dear, kate. It's so good to see you again. It's so good to see all you darling people again. It's as if we never said good-bye. I may burst into song.
Kate: Well, we thought you were in bollywood working on that indira gandhi biopic. What are you doing here, vivian?
Vivian: Funny you should ask. You're about to find out.
Hope: I know that you're upset, but it is not okay to lash out at rafe like that. He has never done anything but look out for you-- for both of us.
Ciara: Yeah, he's a real knight in shining armor.
Rafe: If hope ever found out that you and I slept together... it would destroy everything.
Hope: Ciara, if you have something to say, just say it.
Eve: What the hell are you trying to pull?
Paul: Why did you do that?
Chloe: I didn't--
Chad: Hey, this is a private party.
Vivian: Chad, darling, I'm so sorry I missed the wedding. How was the ceremony? Was it private or were all the inmates there?
Chloe: Should I call security?
Vivian: Ah, chloe, I would have thought you got past that floozy thing by now. Oops.
Chloe: On second thought, I'll throw the bitch out personally.
Vivian: I've forgotten how sensitive all you people are. If you reject me, you see, you won't meet my plus one, and, believe me, you do want to meet my plus one.
[Intense musical buildup]
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.
Kate: Dear, god, you didn't drag that poor lap-dog ivan back with you, did you?
Vivian: Ahaha. No, I left him in india, mooning over me under the mumbai moon.
Chloe: Or baying at it.
Vivian: No, my escort this evening is someone who's so anxious to meet all of you, especially the dimera family. It was a long, twisted path for him to get here, and, of course, fate had something to do with bringing us all together. But I will take credit for bringing him here to salem. Well, I had to. Once I read that invitation that said it was a celebration of the new beginnings of the dimera family business.
Abigail: But that doesn't concern you.
Vivian: Oh, but, of course, it does, ma petite. You see... the mystery man has the same blood coursing through his veins as chad and... andre. Andre, we must have lunch, your treat. Now, where was I? Oh, yes, the big reveal. Le coup de theatre! Ladies and gentlemen, drum roll, please. I have brought with me this evening, the one, the only, stefano dimera.
Eve: Look, brady, I'm sorry, really.
Brady: [Scoffs] You don't look sorry at all.
Eve: You know what, that is the second time that you've kissed me where I haven't given you the slightest indication that a kiss would even be welcomE.
Brady: [Ahem] I'm very, very sorry, I am.
Brady: I didn't think it was a big deal.
Eve: Well, once again, you're wrong and, you know what, you tipped your hand.
Brady: What is that supposed to mean?
Eve: Come on, do you think I haven't noticed how quickly you were to turn on victor and to come work for me? No. A week ago, you couldn't stand the sight of me. You made that very clear, and now this sudden wave of affection--what's that about?
Brady: You weren't exactly subtle at viewing me with loathing and contempt, yet you're always around to take advantage of me. That's your pattern, right? We all know how good you are getting rich guys to give you what you want.
Eve: You are so full of...
Brady: What am I full of?
Eve: Yeah, and you're forgetting one thing, one little simple fact.
Brady: What's that? Tell me.
Eve: You got nothing I want.
Brady: Are you sure?
Eve: Mm-hmm. I'm very sure.
Sonny: Have either of you seen will?
["Old lang syne" continues]
Will: You want to know why I kissed you? Well, it's midnight on new year's eve. That doesn't really explain why I kept kissing you though. Maybe it's because I find you very attractive, or maybe...
Paul: Maybe what?
Will: Do you want the real answer?
Paul: Yeah, I guess.
Will: It's been a weird ride for me. I mean, this--this place, salem that feels so familiar that I don't remember, and I feel...surrounded by and bombarded by expectations. People look at me like they're waiting for me to turn into this will that they remember, and I don't, but...not you. Not you, paul. You seem to be happy to deal with the present tense will.
Paul: I want, uh...
Will: You want to run away from the nut job?
Paul: No. I want to say I'm sorry that you feel so pressured, disoriented. I wish I could help.
Will: You are. Just keep being you, and I'll keep being me.
Marlena: Hello, will. Paul.
John: Hey, happy new year.
Marlena: Happy new year.
[Jazzy "auld lang syne" plays]
Kate: I said, "leave her in that sarcophagus," and did anyone listen to me? No. And look what we have now.
Jennifer: Hope and rafe need to know about this.
Andre: I'm sure you'll be stunned to know that I think you're lying.
Kate: Oh, our vivian lie? No.
Andre: And even if stefano was alive--and that's a big if-- he knows what's waiting for him if he ever stepped here in salem. Besides, he despised you. He wouldn't be caught dead anywhere near you.
Kate: Given her proclivity for burying and digging people up, maybe she did bring stefano back. Just not, you know, alive.
Abigail: Well, happy new year, everyone. What a way to start 2018.
Kate: Oh, kate, I know why you're so defensive. You're married to andre dimera when you were married to stefano dimera. It's sort of like trading down from the king to the court jester.
Andre: Does anybody have a bucket of water?
Chad: All right, fun's over. As much as I love a good coup de theatre, you have about five seconds to produce my father, or we're gonna throw you out on your ass, respectfully.
Hope: I think it's time that you tell us what's going on. I can see that something's wrong. I can see that you're in pain. What can I do? Please.
Ciara: I don't think there's anything anyone can do, and it's like... it's like you give your love with everything that you've got, and you imagine a life with that person, and then they just give it away.
Hope: Honey, I know that theo hurt you. I know that--
Ciara: No, mom, this is not about theo. It's--
Jennifer: Hope! I'm sorry. You need to know that vivian alamain just crashed the party.
Eric: She's saying stefano is outside.
Rafe: [Scoffs] What?
Hope: Oh, mother of god. You stay here.
Ciara: What? Now that the party's getting interesting you don't want me around?
Hope: Honey, you're drunk. It's new year's eve. I want you to stay safe, okay? Please stay here.
Ciara: Fine, fine. You and rafe go be you and rafe. Go be the good guys.
Jennifer: We'll look after her. Go.
Hope: 2018's starting off with a bang, huh?
Vivian: Ah, what the hell did we ever do without these things?
Chad: Four, three...
Vivian: All right, all right. He's coming. Stefano dimera is right outside the door, but he very generously allowed me to make a grand entrance into the salem sun, as it were, to [Speaking french].
Chad: Two, one.
Vivian: Moving on.
Vivian: Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you stefano dimera.
[Intense sweeping music]
These women have
Eve: We will finish this tomorrow. Sonny.
[Brady clears his throat]
Brady: You lost your husband? I thought you two were gonna go to that party.
Sonny: We did, but he needed to spend some time alone, so he...took a walk.
Paul: Happy new year to you too. H-how was steve and kayla's?
Marlena: Nice, nice. Where's sonny?
Paul: He's at--he's at chad's party. And will, he needed a little air, and I was gonna go for a run, but, you know what? It's a little late now, so I'm just gonna head home. Yeah, have a good night.
John: We're headed that way. We'll walk with you.
Marlena: You know, why don't you go ahead? I'll catch up.
John: All right, all right. You be careful.
[Marlena giggles] Kid, come on.
[Jazzy music in background]
Will: Well... happy new year.
Marlena: Honey. What did we walk in on just now?
Will: Oh, uh, I was kissing paul.
Kate: [Scoffs, laughs] Well, what a surprise. Vivian alamain is full of it. Smoke and mirrors. Taking center stage to make the shocking announcement that stefano dimera is back.
[Laughs, murmurs] That we wouldn't notice that he's half stefano's age? It's not really even laughable. Though, nice coat. What is that? It's italian, right?
[Laughs] Oh, vivian, I think you have finally lost it. Or you're blind. Or you're both. Poor dear.
Vivian: Of sound mind and body, and 20-20 vision.
Hope: You shouldn't have done this.
Vivian: Hope! You haven't changed. You're as officious as ever.
Hope: That man is not stefano dimera, but more to the point, you knew this stupid little stunt didn't have a chance of working. What's your game?
Vivian: Oh, it's a very big game, and I'm going to win.
Stefan: Ladies and gentlemen, if I could please have a moment of your time. Seems to be some kind of a misunderstanding here.
Chad: Yeah, just a little.
Stefan: So allow me to introduce myself. My name... is stefan octavius dimera, or quite simply, stefan O. Dimera. I'm stefano's son.
Will: You... you're looking at me like you wish I hadn't told you that, but I-- I'm not gonna lie to you. Ever. About who I am or what I do.
Marlena: Of course not, and I wouldn't want you to. You know, as far as looking at you... I'm not shocked. I'm not even upset that you were... that you were kissing paul. That's not who I am.
Will: No, it's not. We used to talk a lot, didn't we?
Marlena: Mm. You remember that?
Will: No, but I-I can feel like you're the kind of person I'd be able to talk to. You and paul, both, y-you don't focus on the past, a past that I-I don't remember. You--you accept me for who I am right now.
Marlena: I'd like to get to know who you are...right now.
Will: Yeah, so would I. I'm trying to figure that out, but...I do know one thing.
Marlena: Tell me.
Will: I don't want to be the guy who cheats on his husband.
Brady: So it's new year's eve and will needs some "air," needs some space, needs to be alone, yet he's nowhere to be found. I don't know, sonny, this sounds like, uh... this sounds bad. I'm no expert on relationships or anything, but--
Sonny: Yeah, that's an understatement.
Brady: But it's not good. It's not a good sign. I would recommend maybe some couples' therapy, you know? Maybe a leash?
Sonny: So you and eve seem to be getting along better.
Brady: We have to. We work together.
Sonny: You know, I'm really glad that after uncle vic fired you that you bounced back, because that had to be humiliating.
Brady: Or engineered by you.
Sonny: But with you and eve, just now...that was an intense conversation. Were you talking about basic black sales projections, or... I mean, whatever it was, it certainly aroused your, uh...interest. And as the ceo of titan--
Brady: Acting. Acting ceo.
Sonny: As the ceo of titan, I'm gonna keep my eye on both of you, 'cause who knows what you're planning?
Brady: Well, I suggest you keep your eye on will. You don't think he's with paul, do you? Nah, he wouldn't--no. Maybe. You never know. I mean, he could be reenacting the past, you know, to jog his memory a little bit. Happy new year.
[Teasing jazzy music]
Paul: Yeah, yeah, I, uh... I saw sonny tonight.
Paul: Kind of hit me hard. You know, I thought--
[Exhales] I thought this would be my first new year's eve with him, you know, as his husband.
John: And instead, you were with will.
Paul: Yeah, yeah. He kissed me.
Paul: Yeah, "oh." Look, I've been doing some thinking. You know, I lied to sonny in memphis, but I won't do that again, so I think that I need to call sonny and I need to tell him what happened.
John: I-I don't know if you want to do that. That...could be something you're gonna regret.
Paul: You don't think that sonny deserves to know the truth?
John: Well, before you share, I just... I need to ask you. Why are you gonna tell him? Are you...really trying to be honest, or are you trying to break up him and will?
Jennifer: Here, hydrate. You'll feel a lot better in the morning.
Eric: Not that she's going to feel great. You tied one on, didn't you?
Ciara: Are you really in the position to lecture me right now?
Eric: Not lecturing. It's sympathy. I know you haven't had a great time of it since you came home, but I hope you feel better knowing that theo's okay.
Ciara: Oh, of course, I'm happy for theo, eric. I wish nothing but the best for him.
Ciara: But... now-- now it just sort of feels like I'm the one that's in a coma. It feels like the world is spinning, and I-I'm stuck. It feels like I'm screaming, and no one can hear me.
Jennifer: Sweetheart, listen to me--I'm so sorry that you feel that way...but there are a lot of people who love you. And we really do want to hear you, but you can't just run away from your feelings and make these bad choices and bad decisions by drinking like this.
Ciara: Oh, my god, oh, my god, is everyone in this town a hypocrite? Bad decisions. Running away. I mean, can you spell "addiction"? And, you know, I may have been drinking tonight, but...
[Laughs] At least I didn't get behind the wheel of a car and kill my best friend.
Chad: So you're a dimera.
Stefan: Chad, right?
Stefan: Pleasure to finally meet you. Andre, I've heard so much about you.
Andre: And yet we've never heard anything about you. Maybe that's because you're not our brother, and maybe because you're lying through your teeth.
Stefan: Abigail. Beautiful.
Chad: Yeah, so you said that we have the same father.
Stefan: That's right. Stefano dimera.
Andre: Oh, that's good to know. So tell me, who is your mommy? Oh, I know, she's dead, and, sadly, there are no records of your birth.
Vivian: No, she's not dead. She's right here.
Andre: You're his mother?
Vivian: God blessed me with one of stefano's children.
Kate: Oh, really, and it just slipped stefano's mind?
Vivian: Stefano never knew about this son.
Andre: Because the whole world didn't know anything about him...because he never existed.
Vivian: He was conceived long before I stepped into salem, when stefano was posing as rudolpho and seduced me to steal my ruby.
Chad: He must have really, really wanted that ruby.
Andre: So what did you do with the kid since then, put him in the tower like rapunzel?
Hope: None of this is adding up. Why is it that we never heard about "stefan o" until now?
Vivian: A young girl, seduced and abandoned with child... I was devastated.
Kate: Oh, a crushed little flower.
Vivian: And to spare me pain that he thought I wouldn't be able to bear, ivan told me... that the child was...stillborn. How I grieved.
Stefan: It's only--what was it--about a year ago that i learned the true identity of my mother. Anyway, I confronted ivan about the truth, and he admitted what he had done, so...here I am. I'm stefano's son and chad and andre's brother.
Kate: And we're supposed to just take your word for it-- your word and ivan's? Because, you see, I don't think he found you in mumbai. I think you found him on imposters.Com.
Vivian: Well, I... I knew you'd be cynical.
Andre: Well, you're not always wrong.
Vivian: That's why I brought proof.
[Dark, edgy music]
My daughter is...
Paul: No, I'm--I'm not trying to come between sonny and will. Maybe you didn't hear me right. Will kissed me.
John: Right. Well, I know how you feel about sonny. I'm just...asking you, how do you feel about will?
Paul: Now that he's back?
I really don't have much of a chance with sonny, even though I still love him... and I need to start letting go, which means you're... you're right, as always. I... shouldn't text him, I... shouldn't call him, because... that wouldn't be letting go. That would be trying to hold on to something that'S... that's already gone.
Will: I like sonny, and I get why I married him and loved him.
Will: When he talks about us, how we met, how we fell in love, it sounds amazing, but it also kind of feels like he's talking about a complete stranger, not me.
Marlena: [Chuckles] I can see that. And I can see that you are surrounded by so many people that knew you and loved you, and you just don't know how you felt about them.
Will: I don't remember you, but...[Laughs] It feels like I've known you my whole life.
Marlena: Well, ever since you were a little boy, we've always... we've always gotten on together. I think we still do.
Will: Me too.
[Phone rings] Sorry.
[Ringing] Ah, it's sonny.
Will: May I?
Marlena: Of course.
Sonny: Hey, finally. Where are you?
Will: I am at the square with a friend.
Vivian: Knowing that salem is filled with hostile, defensive cynics, I've brought proof that stefano and I are the parents of this...charming young man.
Chloe: Probably went to the sami brady paternity lab.
Vivian: This dna profile will conclusively match stefan O. To stefano.
Rafe: Well, you'd need stefano's dna for that.
Vivian: Ah, detective hernandez, stating the obvious.
Hope: How could you possibly have gotten ahold of stefano's dna?
Vivian: Well, you see, in bollywood, like in hollywood, it's who you know, and I have a friend who had a friend who had access to the interpol files that they were keeping on stefano. And your little salem minions can verify the facts. And...I have copies for both of you. They're in my other cape.
Chad: That's great. Okay, so you, uh...we may or may not be brothers. Why are you here? Why tonight?
Stefan: Let me tell you why I'm here...tonight. Everyone knows the power of the dimera name. My father both cherished and reveled in it. It was once a name that meant something, a name that struck fear into the hearts of our rivals and brought promise and prosperity to our allies. But my father's legacy, that power behind his name, it'S... it's since diminished. His legacy is truly in peril. We need to make a change... so that the dimera name means something again.
Abigail: Okay, but wait, those are my words. I wrote that with chad for a speech that he was gonna give for the board meeting tomorrow morning.
Chad: Yes, but he knew what I was going to say before I was gonna say it--it's a real clever little parlor trick.
Ciara: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Jennifer: You should be so sorry. That was so hurtful.
Jennifer: And don't blame being drunk as an excuse. Eric has been nothing but wonderful to you. That was--that was unacceptable and horrible.
Eric: Jennifer, I know ciara. She didn't mean what she said.
Ciara: I didn'T. I really didn'T. I'm sorry. I am so sorry for what I said.
Jennifer: [Whispers] Sweetie.
Ciara: I'm just a mess right now.
Eric: I think we should get her home.
Jennifer: We're gonna get you home--I'm gonna text your mom right now, and I'm gonna take you home.
Eric: Maybe we should go out the back way--that way we won't run into stefano, just in case.
Jennifer: Come on, let's go.
Stefan: When I found out who I was, I made it a point to learn everything there was to know about my family and their business, so I got an advance press release of chad's speech. It's a very nice speech.
Chad: I thought so.
Stefan: I want you to know that I paid very close attention to every word that was written or spoken on behalf of this company, and I must say... I'm very impressed. I mean, the work that you've put in to promote this... event has met and exceeded your high standards. But I'm afraid it was all for naught.
Chad: "For naught"?
Stefan: Yes. As stefano's son, I've decided to, um-- shall I say-- embrace my birthright... and consequently take my rightful place as head of this family and ceo of dimera enterprises.
Chad: Um...I'm, uh, I'm really happy for you and your new-found self-discovery and excited for you to pursue your birthright, but you're not gonna be ceo. That's my job.
[Dark bass chord]
Brady: We have unfinished business.
Eric: Jen, it's all right.
Jennifer: No, it is not all right. I can't even believe that she said that. It's new year's eve, and she flings the worst thing that has ever happened to you in your face?
Eric: Do you think ciara said anything I haven't said to myself? I think about daniel and what I did all the time, especially tonight.
Jennifer: No, I-it was a mistake, and I shouldn't have asked you to go out.
Eric: No, no, no, I'm glad you did. It was nice to be with somebody I care about.
Jennifer: What a horrible night.
Eric: No, not at all. Last thing I remembered, I was wishing you a happy new year, and we both seemed pretty happy before we got interrupted.
Jennifer: Oh, right, because then there was vivian who had to announce for the umpteenth time the return of stefano dimera, and then ciara with her "rebel without a cause" routinE. I mean, what a fun night, right?
Eric: Well, look at it this way-- 2018 can only get better. Happy new year.
Jennifer: Happy new year.
[Intense, charged music]
Sonny: Hey, y-you came home.
Will: Yeah, I did.
Sonny: Do you mind if I ask what friend you ran into?
Will: Well, it was more than a friend. It was marlena.
Will: Yeah, yeah, and it was really good, you know. Talking to her really helped me figure some things out.
Sonny: That's good.
Sonny: I'm really happy that you're feeling better. What do you say we--we toast? It's almost midnight somewhere west of here. Here we go.
Will: Actually, um... thank yoU. I-I'm kind of tired, so... I'm just gonna go to bed. So instead of a toast, how 'bout A... happy new year.
Sonny: Happy new year.
[Soft, thoughtful music]
Stefan: I know that you're prepared to fight me.
Kate: We all are.
Stefan: But I'm afraid it's a case of too little too late. See, the board has lost confidence in all of you.
[Tense, suspenseful music]
Kate, you are spectacularly inept at making acquisitions necessary to keeping this company in the black. You've simply failed to close deal after deal.
Vivian: Read it and weep.
Stefan: And you, brother, at best are unstable.
Vivian: Let me know if I can help you with the big words.
Stefan: Chad, you have been missing in action for quite a long time.
Vivian: And one for the young man who's going to have so much time on his hands. Maybe you and your lovely wife can take a honeymoon.
Stefan: Thank you, mother.
Vivian: You're welcome, son.
Stefan: These are all copies of the board's resolution naming me ceo of dimera enterprises, effective immediately. It was nice meeting you all. Happy new year.
Vivian: Mmm... this has been so much fun. What a great party! Salud!
