Hope: Rafe? Are you awake?
[Rafe exhales] Hey, are you asleep?
Hope: [Kiss] You awake?
Rafe: I am now.
[Hope giggles] Why? What are you doing? Oh...what--
Hope: I... just...I can't sleep.
Rafe: I got that.
Hope: I think I'm too excited about the wedding.
Hope: Ah, you know, let's, um...let's watch tv.
Rafe: [Murmurs] Tv?
Hope: I can't sleep.
Rafe: Well, yeah, I got that, but...no tv.
Hope: No tv? Oh.
Rafe: We should practice.
Rafe: Yeah. For the honeymoon.
Hope: You think we need practice?
Rafe: Never hurt.
Hope: [Laughs] Uh...
Hope: Leave the light on.
Kayla: I can't believe that i just injected him with something that I have no idea what it is.
[John whispers indistinctly] He's going to be all right. We can trust john.
Kayla: I can't believe this is happening.
Steve: [Weakly] Baby...baby.
Kayla: Steve. Steve. Okay. Okay. Okay, good.
Marlena: Who's it from?
John: Billie. She neutralized pamela.
Marlena: Oh, thank god!
John: Yeah. This is a good thing. Now we can release paul and will.
Paul: I don't see anyone around. Whoever it was must have taken off already.
Will: Okay, let's find your dad before he hurts anybody else.
Paul: Oh, my god.
All right, the pulse is strong. Looks like she's been shot.
Will: I think I know her. I've seen her in pictures. I think this is my--this is my aunt billie. She works for the isa, right?
Paul: I need an ambulance at the dimera mausoleum.
Will: Billie. Billie, can you hear me? Billie... who did this to you?
Pamela: Pamela van damme, director of the isa.
Tripp: The isa like where my dad works?
Pamela: Steve is the reason I'm here. I have some news. I'm afraid it isn't good.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Marlena: Are you sure you don't want me to go with you?
John: No way. Billie might have neutralized pamela, but I'm not taking any chances--not with you.
Marlena: You... please be careful.
John: I'm sorry, doc. You don't know how many times i wanted to tell you what was going on.
Marlena: Well, how could you? Pamela had you under 24-hour surveillance. I'm just so glad that billie had your back.
John: I couldn't have done it without her.
[Elevator bell dings]
Paul: Hey, dad, hey...
Will: How, uh...how's billie?
John: Billie? What do you mean?
Paul: She was just brought to the hospital.
Will: Yeah. She was shot. Unconscious when we found her.
Marlena: Oh, my god!
John: Whoa, whoa, whoa, what are you talking about? She just texted me, said she neutralized pamela.
Marlena: W-well, maybe somebody at the agency did it.
John: Yeah, that's what I'm thinkin', but who?
Will: My guess is you.
Pamela: May I come in?
Tripp: Oh, yeah, sorry, um... I was actually waiting on an update from kayla for dad.
Pamela: I'm sure they've left the hospital by now.
Tripp: What do you mean? Why would they?
Pamela: The isa has uncovered a plot to assassinate your father.
Pamela: Someone's been poisoning him.
Tripp: W-who and...why?
Pamela: Well, the identity of your father's would-be assassin is classified. But what I can tell you is the motive behind the poisoning.
Tripp: Uh, o-okay, yeah. I'm listening.
Pamela: When joey johnson killed your mother, the isa helped steve to cover up the crime by creating sworn statements, affidavits... attesting to the fact that ava had to be taken out by steve himself because she posed a national security risk.
Tripp: Yeah, yeah, I know all of this, but you must know that joey ended up confessing to killing her.
Pamela: I do know, and because steve allowed that confession, the agency's cover was blown, and the officer overseeing the case was held accountable for the fallout. Now, that same officer believes that steve is a liability to the agency and should be made to pay for his betrayal...with his life.
Tripp: I did this.
Tripp: [Stammers] Joey would have never felt the need to confess if I hadn't of gone after kayla for murdering my mom. If anyone's to blame for this whole mess, it's--it's me.
Kayla: This is almost done. The antidote should be doing its thing.
Steve: I am feeling a little better.
Kayla: [Small laugh] Good.
Steve: Mmm. Much, much better now.
Kayla: [Chuckles] Oh, I told, uh...I told tripp i would call him. Oh. Well, we must be on the same wavelength.
Steve: Did he call?
Kayla: No, text. He just...wants an update. He's worried about his pop.
Steve: Well, you tell him his dad is doing just fine, okay?
Kayla: Yeah. I can't really get reception in here, so I'm gonna go in the hall. Be right back, all right?
Steve: Thank you, baby.
Tripp: Okay, so you said my dad wasn't at the hospital, so where is he?
Pamela: He's been taken to a more secure location. He asked me to bring you there.
Tripp: All right, ready. Let's go.
[Phone rings] Oh, it's kayla. She's probably just calling to tell me that he's been moved.
Pamela: Oh, you'll see her and your father soon enough.
Tripp: Yeah, but if I don't answer, she'll worry. I'll just tell her that I'm on my way.
[Phone slaps down] What--
Pamela: You couldn't leave it alone, could ya?
Tripp: I don't understand.
Pamela: You will.
Tripp: How much of that whole story you told me was true?
Pamela: All of it, actually. I just omitted one small fact. That person who wants your father to pay for his betrayal is me. But not to worry. I have every intention of getting my way.
(A vocal cover of "harder, better, faster"
Rafe: Oh, my god.
[Hope breathing hard]
Rafe: You better take it easy on me--you're gonna kill me before the wedding.
Hope: Oh, I'm just trying to keep you in shape.
Hope: How'd I get so lucky, huh? To find someone like you? To love me...so completely. Hmm?
Ciara: I'm not being unreasonable, mom...okay? Even rafe says I have the right to be mad at him.
Rafe: It's true. It's true, she does. Um...she loves you. She loves you very much, and she's very protective of you. And she feels like I may have done something that, uh... something that could really upset you.
Hope: I'm sorry, I'M... I'm not quite understanding, um...you would do something to upset me or hurt me?
Rafe: No. No, not--not, uh... not on purpose.
Hope: Okay, um...
I'm really not understanding. Could one of you maybe tell me, enlighten me on what's going on here... please?
Rafe: Ciara overheard me talking to someone.
Hope: Who were you talking to? What was it about?
Rafe: [Exhales] Ohh... well, um...
Rafe: Yeah, yeah, I'm-- I'm getting to that.
Ciara: It was abe. He...
Ciara: Was talking to abe. And...well, it sort of sounded like he was sucking up to abe, trying to get him to let him stay on as commissioner permanently. I thought he was trying to keep you from getting your job back.
Hope: But I got my job. I did. I have my job back.
Ciara: Well, yeah, but what i heard was before that...
Ciara: And it just made me crazy.
Hope: [Laughs] Honey... rafe and I worked everything out. And he's been wonderful and so supportive of me. I love him. Totally trust him.
Ciara: I know. Rafe told me how much he loves you and that he would never do anything to hurt you. And I believe him now.
Um...you said you didn't want to tell mom about sami because it was in the past and it was just that one time, and I thought it was a cop-out.
Rafe: Yeah, which you made clear.
Ciara: But then...you started telling me more about how it happened, and I started to see your side of the story... and...I couldn't let you tell mom tonight. I could see how much it would hurt her if you did. Look... I know what it's like to lose the chance with the person that you love...and I don't want mom to hurt the way that I'm hurting right now.
Rafe: You're the only woman I'll ever want. Don't ever doubt that.
Hope: I won'T. I don'T.
Rafe: You are... way more than enough woman for me.
I love you.
Hope: I love you. Rafe, what is it?
Rafe: I was just, um... you sure that you wanna do the smith island thing? I mean, are we roughing it? No rehearsal dinner...
Hope: Yes, I'M...sure. Why not?
Rafe: Well, because you're the bride, and the bride--they wanna be doted on, right? Those are your friends, your family--you're gonna miss out on all of that.
Hope: No! You know me. I don't care about any of that. I told you months ago I would never want a big wedding.
Rafe: 'Cause we can go camping anytime.
Hope: Honestly, I am telling you that the only person I wanna see...the night before we get married is you. I don't need a room full of people to tell me how lucky I am either, because I know that... the guy that I'm marrying is for me. And I wanna keep him all to myself.
[Both laugh softly]
John: I need to find billie and talk to her.
Will: Talk to her, or finish her off?
John: Doc, can you help me here?
Marlena: Yes, yes, I... I will explain.
Okay. I can understand...after all that you've been through... why you would jump to conclusions about john being to blame.
Will: Because he is to blame. Marlena, he--he's poisoning his best friend! He threatened to kill me and his son!
Paul: Okay, you know what, let's just hear her out.
Marlena: I know... this has been a frightening ordeal for both of you. But I-I think when you understand what's going on... you'll also understand john's motivation.
John: Any chance she's gonna regain consciousness?
She's lost a lot of blood.
John: Hey, hey. I'm right here, billie, I'm right here--john's right here.
John: She did this to you, didn't she?
John: Any idea where she's headed?
Billie: Uhh... steve's son.
[Dramatic musical sting]
John: Steve's son... oh, my... good job, billie. Good job!
Will: How do you justify poisoning your best friend?
Paul: Can we just give them a chance to explain?
Will: Why? Why do we--I don't want to give them a chance--
Marlena: Will, will! Please. For me.
John: We gotta get to joey.
Paul: Why, what happened?
Marlena: What did billie have to say?
John: Apparently, pamela couldn't get to steve, so she's going after his son.
Pamela: I so hoped you'd come without a lot of fuss. But you're like your father, aren't you? Always looking for trouble.
Tripp: You might as well just shoot me right here, 'cause I'm not leaving with you, and I'm sure as hell not letting you use me to get to my dad.
Pamela: You think I won't call your bluff? Think again. I'll put a bullet in your head without a second thought... and use my isa contacts to take out your murderous brother in the middle of his prison cell. So what do you say now? Still wanna hold your ground?
John: All right, stu. Thanks for the update. Yeah, I'll be in touch. All right, that's my guy that's looking after joey. Said joey's fine. Security arrangements billie put in place haven't even been touched.
Marlena: Maybe pamela hadn't gotten to him yet.
John: Yeah, yeah. I told him to be on the lookout.
Marlena: What's going on?
John: Doesn't make sense. Pamela would've known that we had security for joey, and that security would have been increased if there was a new threat.
Kayla: There is no way you could have freed these guys and gotten back here this quickly.
Marlena: No, no, no--they-- they weren't freed, actually. They were in the ambulance with billie.
Kayla: Billie? What happened?
Paul: Billie said that pamela was going after steve's son, right?
Paul: She didn't specify joey.
John: Oh, my god. She's talkin' about tripp!
Pamela: Bear in mind, I have no problem hurting someone you care about to get my way.
[Dramatic musical sting]
Tripp: Okay, look... you don't have to do anything to anybody, all right? If you want me to go with you, I'll go.
Pamela: Well, that's a switch--two minutes ago you told me to shoot you because you wouldn't go.
Tripp: I changed my mind. All right? Come on, let's do this. What are you waiting for, hmm? This is what you wanted, wasn't it?
Pamela: Why the change of heart? Why are you suddenly in such a hurry to get out of here?
[Intense musical build-up]
Paul: Hey. You okay?
Will: Yeah, just...you know. Catching my breath. I-I never, um... thanked you for saving me at the mausoleum.
Paul: Well, you saved me too. Even if we never were in any real danger.
Will: Yeah. I mean, neither of us knew that at the time. Still though, um... the fact that you're willing to risk your life to save mine is something that... I'll never forget.
Kayla: Tripp, listen, it's kayla. I-I just wanted to let you know that your dad is doing much better, and, um, could you just call me when you get this message, please? I know it's late. It doesn't matter what time, okay? Thanks.
[Beep] He's not answering.
Marlena: Well... maybe he's sleeping or maybe he's got the ringer turned off.
John: Better to be safe. Hey, paul, let's head on over to the loft, make sure tripp's safe. Let's go.
Will: Wait, paul, what if you're walking into a trap?
Paul: That's a chance we've got to take.
[Tense percussive music]
Rafe: Well...wow, woman.
[Both chuckle] Okay. I wanna know. You think you can sleep now? Hmm? Hmm?
Hope: Like a baby.
Rafe: Good. 'Cause I need to get some shut-eye before we head to smith island.
Hope: Yeah, you're gonna need your rest.
Hope: I think sleeping under the stars would be good...
[Rafe whispers indistinctly] For both of us.
Hope: It's ciara. Ciara? Honey, are you all right? Where are you?
Ciara: Mom, there's a crazy lady in the loft... with a gun.
[Dark music] What?
Ciara: Please come here. Quickly.
Tripp: Just didn't realize you were serious at first, that's all.
Pamela: Me pulling a gun on you didn't make that kinda clear?
Tripp: I get it now. Any chance I have getting out of this alive is to do whatever you tell me to do. With this, you know, we're on the same side.
Pamela: How do you figure?
Tripp: I don't think steve handled the whole situation with my mom the right way either. I mean...that doesn't mean i don't like the guy, but why would he cover for his kid... when he killed my mom when she was totally helpless? Before I even got the chance to know her.
Pamela: Well, I did know her, and frankly, I think joey did you a favor when he smothered mommie dearest with that pillow. She was a real piece of work, that one.
Tripp: Maybe she was... difficult... but she was the only mother that I had, all right? And she did not deserve to die like that.
Pamela: No. She did not.
Tripp: Come on. Let's go. I'm not gonna try to stop you from bringing the hammer down on steve.
Pamela: Don't even think about it! Drop the bat.
All right, over there with your roomie. This night just got a whole lot more complicated.
Real cheese people get it.
Kayla: You know, steve would want to know that his boss might be going after his son. But I just can't bring myself to go in there and tell him.
Marlena: I wouldn'T. Steve knows that john is gonna take care of joey. And he also knows that he'll take care of tripp.
Kayla: I'm sure you're right. And if steve has any idea what's going on out here, there's no way he is staying in that bed.
Marlena: No. And he needs to stay in there and get well.
Kayla: Yeah. You're right. Thank you.
Marlena: For what?
Kayla: For always being the voice of reason and showing me...reminding me what's important.
Marlena: Wow. Funny... that's what you do for me.
Marlena: Go take care of your husband, okay? That's the most important thing you do, and you're the best at it.
Kayla: That's what steve tells me. Are you sure john can handle this?
Marlena: Not a doubt about it.
Kayla: Okay. Well, I better get in there.
Marlena: Okay. I'll let you know if anything changes.
Kayla: Yeah. Thanks.
Will: Well, you did an excellent job of convincing kayla that everything is gonna be okay, but...I can tell that you're worried.
Marlena: [Chuckles] Well... I'm married to a man who is always determined to do the right thing, no matter what the risk to himself, so... yeah, I'm always worried.
John: Hold it right there! Ohh...what the--
Hope: What're you doing here?
John: I think that's my question.
Hope: I got a call from ciara--she said there was a crazy lady in here with a gun.
John: Pamela van damme, director of the isa.
Hope: Why would she be in here?
John: It's a long story. But the crazy lady ciara was talking about...she's armed and extremely dangerous.
Pamela: Remember, now, you get tricky and try to escape, cutie pie here takes a bullet!
Ciara: Ooh, you are so tough. Why don't you drop the gun and see how cute I can get?
Pamela: You're an unnecessary distraction I don't need at the moment. Push me too far, and I'll finish you--got it?
Tripp: All right, she gets it, she gets it, okay? We'll do everything you tell us. Right, ciara?
Hope: Are you saying ciara's been taken hostage?
John: No, we don't know that for a fact yet.
Rafe: They could've gotten away.
Paul: I don't see any signs of a struggle.
[John snaps his fingers]
John: Pamela, where are you?
Pamela: I need you to listen very carefully.
John: Have you taken tripp and ciara?
Pamela: You expect answers after the way you double-crossed me?
John: Oh, that's a bad move. Only gonna make things worse for yourself if you hurt 'em.
Pamela: Their blood won't be on my hands--it'll be on yours. Unless you do exactly as I say.
Marlena: Thank you. Please sit.
I'm so sorry for what you've been through. I know that you're still shaken up.
Will: I'll be okay. You know, it's kind of ironic. I thought now that I have some perspective and...you know,
[Laughs] I mean...I thought that my life in memphis and everything that went on with susan was crazy, but some of the stuff that's happened since my new old family has found me is, uh, giving a new meaning to the word dysfunctional.
Marlena: Really? Y-you think it's too much?
Will: No, not all...just maybe that one time when sami decided to reenact my murder.
Marlena: Whew. Yeah, that was too much. I agree.
Will: Honestly, between that and this new drama, I...there's no wonder that I still have a memory block.
Marlena: You know, if you wanna--if you wanna work on sorting that out, I would gladly help you.
Will: Thank you. I know. And to be honest, talking to you right now is helping--it's helping calm me down. I think you have that effect on me.
Marlena: Well, I'm glad.
Will: Maybe it's because... you're in my corner. You know, you're looking out for me. Maybe it's 'cause we're related.
Marlena: Yeah. And I appreciate you being in my corner too. Uh...john told me that he was-- well, that you were willing to risk your life...to keep me safe from him.
Will: Well, you know, I-i had a chance to play detective, but I think I got a little more intrigue than I bargained for.
Marlena: And I'm glad that paul was there to make sure that you were safe.
Will: Me too. Me too. I kind of understand what you were talking about about caring for someone who would...risk their own life to help somebody else. Paul is A...he's definitely following in his father's footsteps.
Pamela: Hold your ground, black.
John: Your beef's with me, pamela. Just let the kids go. You can deal with me one on one.
Pamela: Oh, I'll deal with you, but first I want whoever you brought with you to step into the clear so I can see them.
John: You told me to come alone--that's what I did.
Pamela: Oh, don't insult my intelligence. I wrote the book on hostage scenarios, remember?
John: I committed it to memory--that's why I didn't bring backup.
Pamela: Right. I'm sure. Well, maybe you think I've gone soft because I let your pal billie live--just so you know, that's not the case. Let me show you how serious I am.
Ciara: Aah! Aah! Leave me alone, you witch!
Pamela: Ah...how sweet. You brought your boy along. The one you supposedly killed. Anyone else?
John: That's it!
Pamela: I don't believe you.
Pamela: It's starting to look like a party.
Hope: Let my daughter go.
Pamela: I have every intention of releasing your charming little girl and steve's bastard son...but not until i get what I want.
Kayla: There. How's that?
Steve: It's fine. Thanks.
Steve: Were you able to get ahold of tripp?
Kayla: Well, I, um, I left him a message. You know, he's probably out or sleeping. Nothing for anybody to worry about.
Steve: Why would anybody be worried about tripp?
Pamela: Exactly what part of come alone or else wasn't clear?
John: I told everyone not to come.
Pamela: I assume the good detective is here as moral support for his fiancéE. But why bring your son?
John: I didn'T. But you know kids these days, pamela--they just don't listen to their parents.
Paul: John's my dad and steve's my partner. This is personal to me.
John: To all of us. So why don't we just...relax and work this out? Just tell us what you want.
Pamela: Oh, I'd be happy to. But first I need all weapons taken out in full view and tossed on the ground in front of me.
Rafe: Tripp, step back--back!
John: You got a clean shot-- take it!
Ciara: Oh, no, no, no, no!
John: Clean shot--take it!
Pamela: Guns on the deck now!
John: Gun down.
Pamela: Well, it looks like we've got a rebel in our midst.
Hope: You hurt my daughter--
Pamela: Oh, I know. You'll hunt me to the ends of the earth and make me pay. I get it--because I get seeking vengeance, and I will not be cheated out of mine.
There's enough poison in that syringe to kill three men. But I only want you to kill one. Finish what you started, john. Because only when steve johnson is dead will these two go free.
Kayla: Well, I didn't mean that there was nothing...that you needed to worry about. I...
Steve: You just said that--
Kayla: No, no, I just meant that there was nothing for tripp to worry about with you.
Steve: You told him I got the antidote, right?
Kayla: Well, I didn't go into great detail, but I reassured him that you're gonna be fine. And I'm sure that he'll wanna come see for himself tomorrow.
Steve: Good. Can I--can I use your phone? I think I should give john a call.
Kayla: The last person that you need to call is john. This whole thing could have been avoided if he had just been upfront with you.
Steve: Baby, it wouldn't have made a difference either way. Even if he had told me, I would have gone through with it. The same he would have if the situation had been reversed. You gotta understand something. Neither one of us has ever had a problem facing death...if it meant saving the people we loved.
John: [Whispers] Fine, I'll do it.
Paul: Dad, you can'T.
John: There's no choice. All right, I'll head to the hospital. I'll finish what i started with steve. And then you're gonna hold up your end of the deal, and you're gonna let these kids go.
Pamela: Oh, just do as you're told, and don't bother trying to come up with any other ways to stop me. I have covered all the bases.
John: I'm sure you have.
Pamela: Kayla might resist, but steve won'T. Not once you explain what's at stake if you don't do it. He'll gladly trade his life for his son... and bo brady's daughter.
John: I'll signal you when the job's complete.
Tripp: No! I can't let you do this. Not when I'm the reason for all of this.
Tripp: It's true. If I hadn't have gone after kayla for killing my mom... the isa cover story would have never been blown. None of this would have ever happened, okay? So if someone has to die for that... it's gotta be me.
Kayla: You know what?
Kayla: As soon as this antidote works and you get the all clear from dr. Simpson... I am making us a reservation at doug's place so we can celebrate our anniversary in style. What do you think?
Kayla: Am I boring you?
Steve: No, baby. Just suddenly got really tired. Is that a bad sign?
Kayla: No, I think it's a good sign. That means that your body is working overtime so the antidote can counteract the poisons. I think all you need to do is rest and let it do its thing.
Steve: Yeah, well...you stay here, okay? You know I always sleep better with you by my side. When I wake up... I want the first thing I see... to be your beautiful face.
Kayla: I'm not going anywhere.
Pamela: You're wise for such a young man. This is a far better way to punish steve--having to live knowing his decision to protect one son cost him the other.
John: No, no, no, no, no. This was not part of the deal.
Pamela: Don't! Our deal was null and void when you broke your end of the bargain. Just toss that syringe over here.
Tripp: It's okay, john. I wanna do this.
Pamela: I'd like to say you'll feel no pain, but I'd be lying.
Tripp: And if I do this... you'll let ciara go, right?
Pamela: Sure, why not?
Ciara: No, tripp, no, I can't let you do this.
Pamela: Shut up. Ow! Aah--
Paul: I need an ambulance.
Rafe: Don't bother.
John: What you just did, kid, was incredibly brave. You're a real chip off the old block.
Tripp: Just did what my dad would have done.
Hope: Fatality at the horton town square. I need the coroner and csi down here right away.
