Marlena: John? I've left you messages all night long.
John: I know, I know. I'm sorry.
Marlena: Yeah, you couldn't pick up the phone? You couldn't call me? I've been worried sick. Where were you?
Hope: Hey, will, it's hope. Uh, listen, I am so sorry that we didn't get the opportunity to finish our conversation last night. Um... I know you think that john is behaving strangely, but I assure you, I'm sure there is a simple explanation about it. Anyway--I won't go on. As soon as you get this message, please give me a call so I know that you're okay. Thanks, will.
Carrie: Good. You're free.
Hope: Not really.
Carrie: Well then, maybe you can make some time to clear my parents... now that you've arrested gabi hernandez for andre's murder.
[Soft dramatic music]
Lucas: Mom. Hey, I--I--
Lucas: Called the house and harold said you were here.
Kate: Oh, well I'm sure you're not here to pay your respects to andre.
Lucas: I'm actually looking for will. Have you seen him?
[Suspenseful dramatic music]
Gabi: Looking for this?
Abigail: Oh, my god.
Chad: Hey. It's okay.
Abigail: It was gabi.
[Office phones ringing]
Justin: Good morning, gabi. Have a seat.
Gabi: How's arianna?
Justin: She's good. I saw her and sonny last night. So, are you ready for this? D.A. Trask should be here any minute.
Gabi: Good. Because I didn't kill andre and I want to get out of here.
Justin: Well, I'm all for that. But you should know that whatever happens in this room next is just the beginning.
Gabi: I understand. I--I've been in this position before, justin. But eli, he swore to me that he and rafe and doing everything possible to find out who the real killer is.
Stefan: Andre's death was indeed unfortunate. But he did lay the groundwork for huge profits with the acquisition of gabi chic. I fully intend to honor his memory by building on that. Oh, you, uh, you won't be disappointed, mr. Shin, I promise you that. Very well.
Great day to be a dimera.
Rafe: [Chuckles] Yeah. Well, hey. Hope we're not interrupting.
Stefan: I really need to speak to harold about failing to announce visitors. To what do I owe this honor?
Eli: We have more questions for you about your brother's death.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Stefan: More questions. You arrested gabi?
Rafe: Doesn't mean we stopped gathering evidence.
Stefan: It must be difficult. She's your sister, your girlfriend.
Eli: We're very capable of keeping our personal and professional lives separate.
Stefan: Well, of course. Of course, detective. I'm just saying, uh, I'm sure you're hoping to find something, anything that'll clear gabi's name. Right? Although the footage of her coming and going from the scene of the crime, it's difficult to spin that any other way but guilty.
Rafe: Yeah, it's funny you mention that. The footage is exactly why we're here.
Stefan: Of course. Of course you are. As I've explained, um, I was installing a new security system. The one-hour shutdown couldn't be helped.
Rafe: [Chuckles] Right. It's just-- the--the timing of it is, uh... I mean-- it shut down at the exact same time that andre is murdered.
Stefan: You think I had something to do with my brother's murder?
Chad: No, you-- you just miss andre. You're grieving and these-- these dreams have to be part of that.
Abigail: But I just feel like he's trying to tell me something.
Chad: You can't honestly think it was gabi.
Abigail: No, I don'T. I--I think she's innocent, but-- why is there so much evidence against her?
[Ominous dramatic music]
Justin: Sonny took this picture last night.
Gabi: Oh, is she wearing a tiara?
Justin: I couldn't resist!
Justin: Every little girl should have one, right?
Gabi: Oh, you spoil her so much. Thank you. I can't wait to give her so many kisses and hug her. This is-- this is when you're supposed to say that I'll be home in no time.
Justin: Gabi, there is nothing I want more than you home with arianna.
Melinda: That's probably not gonna happen. Because I've just filed charges against you. Murder in the first degree.
Marlena: Doesn't look like you've slept.
John: I haven'T. So what's going on with steve? What's the prognosis?
Marlena: I don't know. They're running more tests. More mris. Doctors are... baffled. They have no idea what they're dealing with.
John: So really rough.
Marlena: Yeah. It's really rough. It's so rough that if the doctor's don't figure this out, steve might not make it.
Lucas: I was hoping that will would be here.
Kate: Well, honey, why would he be here?
Lucas: Well, I called him a few times. I left a couple messages, but I don't know, I mean, I just want him to meet me here in case you needed us. But he didn't call me back. Went to the martin house, but he wasn't in his room.
Kate: Honey, he's a young guy. I--I'm sure he has better things to do than to spend time with dead people or hold the hand of a woman that he doesn't even remember.
Lucas: Well, I don't have anything better to do. And I may not be a huge fan of andre's, but I'm a fan of love. And I love you. So I'm here for you. If you want to talk, you just hold my hand and we'll talk about it, okay?
Stefan: [Exhales] Dimera's been hacked on more than one occasion. Millions have been stolen from countess wilhelmina. It's my job as ceo to ensure that never happens again.
Rafe: Very noble. But it doesn't change the fact that the timing of the shutdown raises questions. There's no video. There's no log of entrances, exits, keycard usage. So we need to establish a timeline to make up for that missing hour of footage, question everyone who had access to andre dimera's office.
Eli: Where were you when andre was murdered?
Chad: That's an answer I'd love to hear.
Carrie: There is zero reason for this to be hanging over my mother's head, now that gabi has been arrested. So what do you say we make this go away? For my mom and dad.
Hope: The department isn't pressing obstruction charges against your dad.
Carrie: That's a start. What about my mother? With gabi in custody, she-- she can't still be a suspect.
Hope: Well, the case is still open. I'm waiting to hear from D.A. Trask to know how to proceed before I can clear anna.
Justin: Murder one? You have no eye witness. No fingerprints. It's circumstantial at best.
Melinda: I've reviewed the evidence. It's very damning.
Justin: There's another suspect! A lot of unanswered questions and an ongoing investigation.
Melinda: Miss hernandez had motive, means, opportunity.
Justin: Yes, and so did anna dimera.
Melinda: Gabi chic is projected to bring in millions. Andre dimera stole it. The company you poured your heart and soul into.
Gabi: Okay, this was just a job. I would never kill somebody because of that.
Melinda: Oh--you've killed before.
Justin: Oh, so that's what this is about? Nick fallon? You're still bitter about gabi getting an early release due to a technicality. So now you're gonna grind this into a murder one charge?
Melinda: This isn't personal, justin. It's business. I just happen to love my job. You had the means.
Justin: A handy urn of ashes that's just lying around? Come on, melinda.
Melinda: You had the opportunity. Your keycard was used to access the elevator.
Justin: It could have been stolen!
Melinda: And there's video surveillance of you entering andre's office and leaving.
Justin: You can't even see the face of the person in that footage.
Melinda: And holding the lid from the urn you used to kill him.
Gabi: I didn't kill him!
Melinda: And you have no alibi for the night in question.
Gabi: I was out for a drive.
Melinda: Around a lake, out of cell range. And then you came home to an empty house. No corroboration, just your word.
Justin: You do not have enough to charge my client with murder one.
Melinda: On the contrary. Based on this, I'll have no problem convincing a jury that gabi hernandez murdered andre dimera in cold blood and with malice aforethought.
Lucas: You want to go in?
Kate: Um, no, not-- not yet. So cold in there. You know, it's still...
I took your advice, I-- I told andre that I loved him. I thought he was going to sweep me up into his arms and the sky was gonna open and angels were gonna sing.
Lucas: I knew there was a romantic in there somewhere.
Kate: Instead he told me that he fired gabi and stole her company. You know, I shouldn't really have been surprised, because, after all, andre was andre. Still, it hurt. I hurt because I had told gabi that I was going to take care of her. I told her that I would protect her and support her. And he knew that, he knew what gabi meant to me-- means to me. He knew. He knew that I had given her my word.
Lucas: And he screwed you over.
Kate: We had such a horrible fight. And I told him that if he didn't rehire her, it was over between us. And now it is over between us. And he's lying dead in a mausoleum.
Carrie: I can't imagine how hard this must be for rafe.
Hope: Nothing easy about it.
Carrie: Give him my best.
Hope: I will.
Carrie: And I'm going to go tell my parents this semi-good news.
Hope: Okay. Oh, wait-wait-wait-wait-wait! Wait, hold on. Uh, our wedding invitations, they're ready. I want to give it to you. Um, they're here somewhere. March 1st. I really hope that you and austin can make it.
Rafe: I don't know what heard or what--
Carrie: Sami told me the two of you have slept together. She--she told me everything.
Hope: Carrie? Is something wrong?
Stefan: As I've already explained, I wasn't in the building the night andre was murdered.
Stefan: There is one thing that, uh, that does stick out though. Um. I asked gabi out on a dinner date. Of course, she flatly refused me given that she's so very involved with you, detective.
Eli: What time was that?
Stefan: Uh, I'm not sure exactly. Earlier in the day. Abigail can confirm. She was there.
Abigail: It's true.
Eli: When was the last time you saw gabi?
Stefan: Uh, when she walked away from me. From us. On her way to andre's office, as a matter of fact.
Rafe: When was the last time you saw andre?
Stefan: Right here at breakfast.
Eli: Oh, not at the office, huh?
Stefan: No, I--I never saw him after breakfast, never spoke to him.
Rafe: But the gabi chic ipo was scheduled for the next morning. It--it was a big day. Huh?
Rafe: Yeah, I--I just-- I find it hard to believe that you never spoke to andre.
Stefan: Well, I'm a hands-off ceo. Andre ran countess wilhelmina. It was his launch to oversee.
Rafe: Oh. So you're sure that you never were in andre's office the day that he was murdered?
Rafe: Maybe you went in there when the cameras were off.
Stefan: No. Absolutely not.
Rafe: No? You sure?
Stefan: No. Yes.
Eli: And we just have to take your word for that.
Stefan: Are you suggesting I'm lying, detective?
[Scoffs] You know what? My mother warned me this would happen. No matter what the crime, albeit murder or dog-napping, the salem pd will try and hang a dimera for it.
Rafe: Your brother lost his life. Okay? My sister might spend the rest of her life behind bars because of it. So excuse us, but we're just trying to find the truth.
Stefan: Perhaps you should accept the truth. Andre double-crossed your sister, blew her dreams to hell, so she killed him for it.
Chad: I, for one, believe that gabi's innocent.
Eli: Why are you so sure?
Justin: Gabi has been cooperative. She voluntarily came in for questioning. She allowed the police to search her car, her apartment, and they came up with nothing. Nothing. No coat. No lid to that urn.
Melinda: An experienced murderer like gabi is more than capable of disposing of incriminating evidence.
Justin: You are biased, counselor. And you're rushing to judgment.
Melinda: I have a responsibility to the people of this city.
Justin: And you are a little enthusiastic, okay? First-degree murder? I mean, you yourself said it was a crime of passion.
Melinda: Oh, and thanks to the security footage, the jury will see your client passionately punch the wall after mr. Dimera fired her. Then they will see her returning with the intent to kill him.
Melinda: This was a planned, premeditated act. The charge of murder one stands.
Gabi: Okay, so I punched a wall. I did. I punched the wall. I didn't kill andre!
Melinda: Tell that to the judge. Your arraignment's in a few minutes.
Justin: You're moving this right along, aren't you?
Melinda: It's a high-profile case. The public demands justice.
Gabi: I--no, no, no. I can't believe this is happening, no.
Justin: Okay, gabi, this is just standard procedure. Okay, we'll enter a plea and then we'll ask that bail be set. We're a long way from trial.
Melinda: There is an alternative. The victim's family would be spared a great deal of pain and the state a great deal of expense if you... plead to manslaughter.
Justin: No. No, no, no-no-no. No deals. She's innocent.
Melinda: Why don't you let your client make up her own mind? Andre dimera cheated you out of your life's work. You were angry. Things got out of control. This is my one chance to help you. If you plead not guilty and you're convicted of murder in the first degree, you will spend the rest of your life in jail. But if you take this deal, you could be out in nine years. You've already missed your daughter's first words, first steps. This way, you'll be out in time to see her graduate from high school. You made a mistake. This is your chance to do the right thing for yourself, your little girl. I'm on the new weight watchers freestyle program,
[Soft dramatic music]
Melinda: I need an answer now, miss hernandez.
Justin: I'd like a minute to confer with my client--
Gabi: I don't need a minute. No, you're right to come at me as a mother, because there is nothing more important to me than my daughter. And let me tell you, it terrifies me to think that I might not spend the rest of her life with her. So yes, I'm scared. I am scared, because this looks really bad. But you know what? I raised my daughter to tell the truth. So no, I'm not gonna lie. And no, I am not going to confess to some crime I did not commit! So no deal.
Melinda: This offer walks out the door with me.
I will see you in court.
Gabi: [Breathing heavily]
Chad: Gabi said she didn't do it. I believe her.
Stefan: 'Cause she's your former lover?
Chad: 'Cause she's a mother. And I know raising arianna's the most important thing in the world to her. She's done time. She knows the price of going too far, and she's not gonna take that kind of risk again.
Stefan: You know, detective, uh, that-- gabi's attorney should put this one on the stand. Character reference and all that fun stuff.
Abigail: If you think that's funny, it's not.
Stefan: Is there anything else I can help any of you with?
Rafe: We're still looking for andre's cell phone. It wasn't at the crime scene.
Stefan: [Sighs] I--I don't know. Maybe he didn't have it with him.
Eli: Kate was one of the last people to see him alive, and she said that he did.
Rafe: Mm-hmm. Killer could have taken it 'cause there was something incriminating on it. Might help us shed some light on our case.
Abigail: I can look around the house.
Rafe: Thank you.
Stefan: Look, uh, I have a conference call at the office. Um, so if there's no more questions--
Rafe: We're done.
Stefan: I really hope you mean that this time.
Rafe: [Chuckles] I'll bet.
Eli: Nice guy.
Chad: He's pretty certain gabi's guilty.
Eli: Most of the evidence points to gabi. Look, is there anything else that either of you can tell us about what happened on that day?
Abigail: No. I mean, it's just what I've already told you. I ran into her in the park, and she didn't have a coat on, and she was upset and then I just told her that I-- I would ask chad to see if andre could rehire her.
Rafe: Gabi told me that she was going for a drive. Did she indicate to you where she might have been going? Is there anything that could be pertinent to the case?
Gabi: He's not gonna get away with this. I swear, I'll kill him for this!
Hope: Well--unless you don't want to come...
Carrie: Oh, um, no, I was going over austin's schedule in my head and, you know, noah's such a bad traveler right now. Um, actually I didn't expect to be invited.
Hope: Of course we'd invite you.
Carrie: Oh... thank you. I--I'll let you know if we're free.
[Soft laugh] Okay.
Hope: Carrie. Wait. I'm sorry, um. Before you go...
[Breathes deeply] Does this have something to do with what happened with sami?
Lucas: I'm sorry I told you to take a chance on love.
Kate: What? No. Don't be sorry. I--I--I-- I don't regret it at all. I mean, I felt love. It was there. I just wish that it hadn't ended like that, because our words were such angry ones.
Kate: Anyway. Enough of that. What about you? How are you doing?
Lucas: I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm sober if that's what you're asking.
Kate: Well, you look great. You look so good. You look like you're ready for anything.
Lucas: Ah-- I--I might even be ready for love. I thought I'd take some of my own advice and I actually asked somebody out.
Kate: Wow. Well, that's good. Who? [Soft laugh]
[Playful dramatic music]
What are you--
Kate: I am gonna lock you in this crypt if you even...
Lucas: You're not gonna--
Kate: ...Think of--oh!
Marlena: You still haven't told me where you were last night. Were you with this-- this new client?
John: Yeah, I was.
Marlena: All night long?
John: Turns out it's a big case.
Marlena: It's such a big case that you couldn't return my phone call? You couldn't even check on your best friend?
John: Doc, I already said that I was sorry. If there was any way I could have been here for you and steve last night, I would have been.
Marlena: Hm. But this--this new client, is it more important than your best friend's life?
[Somber dramatic music]
Wow. I know what's going on with you now. This is killing you, isn't it? Steve's in a hospital bed, fighting for his life, and you can't even help him. Plus, you got some secret you're keeping from me. I'm assuming it's about this-- this new client. I'm your partner. Tell me. Let me help you.
John: I can't talk about the case.
[Soft dramatic music]
But, doc, listen, I want you to trust me when I tell you that if I was the one in that hospital bed and steve was out there last night, he would have done exactly what I did. Will you trust me when I tell you that?
Marlena: Of course. Of course.
John: I need to get some fresh air.
Lucas: Come here.
Kate: I can't stop.
Lucas: Relax, okay?
Kate: I can't relax. Lucas, seriously, you remember what she did to you. She--she lied to you. She cheated on you. Come on.
Lucas: You poisoned her.
Kate: That stupid rumor again. Come on.
Lucas: Mom, look, the date never happened. Relax, okay?
Kate: Well, that's a good thing.
Lucas: Yeah, she had some opera thing to do in vienna. She'll be gone for a few months.
Kate: Really? Well, that's wonderful. Maybe you'll get your senses back by that--or better yet, maybe we're gonna be lucky enough and she'll decide to stay in vienna.
Lucas: Eh, I don't know. Chloe has changed.
[Tender music] Lucas, I thought andre had changed too.
Lucas: You want to go inside? Come on.
Kate: I don't know, I-- I think that I'm gonna go in alone. Some things I want to say, I want to talk to him. Who knows, I might yell and scream a little, you know? The thing is he was always there to talk back. You know, andre always wanted to have the last word.
Lucas: Well, you never know. When I visited will's grave, he talked back.
Kate: Yeah. Yeah, well... yeah, will came back to life. It was a miracle. I think we're fresh out of miracles. Go ahead. Go find your son.
Lucas: Are you sure?
Kate: Yeah, I'm sure.
Lucas: Just call me, please. Call me if you need anything. All right?
Kate: I love you.
Lucas: I love you too. Sorry.
Carrie: What happened with sami?
Hope: That--that she and rafe were... married once before. Maybe that makes you uncomfortable.
Carrie: No. It--definitely not about that.
Hope: You just seemed hesitant.
Carrie: You just caught me in a moment. No hesitation here. Sami is happy for rafe. And you. As am I. We're thrilled. And he's a great guy. No one deserves a second chance at love more.
Rafe: Abigail, do you remember something?
Chad: It's okay. You have to tell them.
Eli: Tell us what?
Abigail: Um, I think it's nothing, because I think people say things all the times just in the heat of the moment--
Rafe: Well, what did she say, abigail?
Abigail: She said that she would kill andre.
Chad: That's--it's a figure of speech, I'm sure.
Eli: Unless the person she says it about ends up dead the same day.
Abigail: I'm sorry. I--
Rafe: It's okay. It's okay, we need to hear the truth, even if it's something we don't want to hear, so thank you for being honest. Listen, give us a call if you remember anything else, okay?
Chad: We will.
Rafe: Thank you. Thanks.
Abigail: [Sighs] What did I just do?
Chad: Just--you had to-- you had to tell them the truth.
Abigail: Yeah, but maybe I gave the police everything that they need to throw gabi in prison for the rest of her life.
Hope: Anything new?
Rafe: Nothing from stefan. Oh, but abigail did overhear gabi say she wanted to kill andre right before he was found murdered--
Hope: What--what? Come on. You know gabi, words fly out of her mouth without her even thinking. But actually killing andre? I don't see it. Not at all.
Rafe: I know, hope. I know that she didn't do it, okay? But damn it, the-- the evidence is piling up against her.
[Phone beeps] And it's gonna reach a tipping point. I'm not gonna be able to do anything to help her if trask brings murder charges.
Hope: She already has.
Chad: Thanks for getting that done. Mm-hmm.
Abigail: Um, I'm gonna head into the office.
Chad: Kay, I'm gonna have to meet you there.
[Soft dramatic music] I'm a bad friend.
Chad: Oh, stop it. You didn't have a choice.
Abigail: I should have had gabi's back though.
Chad: Well, lying to the police isn't gonna protect her.
Abigail: That night, I should have talked to her and I should have--I should have stayed with her and talked her down.
Abigail: Given her an alibi--
Chad: Stop. Okay, we'll get to the truth. One way or another.
Abigail: We have to prove that she's innocent.
[Kisses] I'll see you there.
Justin: Well, the good news is you got bail.
[Phone beeps] Hello. This is justin. Okay. Thank you for letting me know.
[Phone beeps] More good news. Your bond's been posted.
Justin: Yeah, I guess someone wants you to go home.
Gabi: Did they-- did they say who?
Gabi: Must have been rafe. I hope he didn't put up his house as collateral.
Justin: Well, only a problem if you're going to run.
Gabi: No. Hell no. I'm gonna fight this.
Justin: That's the attitude.
Gabi: If trask thinks that I'm capable of murder just because someone stole my company, well she's gonna see how dangerous I can be when someone tries to take me away from my kid.
Justin: Okay. Maybe you want to dial back that attitude just a little bit. Trask is very good at what she does. You say the wrong thing at the wrong time? She'll have no problem using your words to take you down.
Gabi: Yeah, I know, I know. But someone killed andre and is trying to frame me. I'm gonna find out who it is and I'm gonna make damn sure they pay.
(A vocal cover of "harder, better, faster"
Rafe: Hi. You okay?
Eli: Just a lot on my mind.
Rafe: Yeah? Well, gabi's out on bail. One less thing to worry about.
Eli: It's a relief.
Rafe: It is. Listen, I know that I've given you a hard time, all right? I wanted to say sorry. You've had gabi's back and that's great there's someone that she can count on.
Eli: Except when she couldn'T.
Rafe: What does that mean?
[Uneasy dramatic music]
Gabi: Yeah, I just-- yeah, I want to see arianna whenever I can, okay. Yeah, I love you too, sonny.
Chad: Hey. I supposed I don't have to ask, uh, if you're okay or not.
Gabi: Chad. First degree murder. I mean, is this really happening? I'm lucky the judge agreed to set the bail. I'm lucky somebody posted it. It may be rafe--
Chad: I--I'm the one-- I posted your bail.
[Gentle music] I--'cause I believe you're innocent. And I know you're being framed.
Stefan: Of course, it's locked. Uh...
[Pensive dramatic music]
Come on. Can't be "phoenix."
[Chuckles] Really, andre? Using our father's sobriquet? How very unoriginal of you.
[On phone] Andre, it's stefan. So I heard you fired gabi. Yeah, we, uh, we need to talk. If you don't mind staying late, I'll come to your office so we can discuss the future of gabi chic.
[Tender ambient music]
[Dramatic music pounds]
John: How's our guy?
Marlena: Oh, he's, uh, he's done with all his tests. He's sedated now.
John: Oh. You look exhausted, sweetheart. Why don't you go and get some rest? I'll stay here with steve.
Marlena: Really? 'Cause you didn't get any more sleep than I did last night.
John: No, this is where I want to be. It's where I need to be. Go on, I'll give you a call if anything changes.
Marlena: Okay please do that. Um. I'm glad you're here. I think it'll mean so much to him to wake up and have you here.
John: I love you.
Marlena: Love you too.
John: Get some rest.
