Hope: [Laughs]

Rafe: What?

Hope: I'll be right back.

Rafe: Yeah, you will.

Hope: Mm.

Rafe: I'll be right here.

Hope: Okay.

Rafe: Okay.

Hope: Yeah, okay.

Rafe: Mm.

[Faint rustling]

[Suspenseful music]

[Heart rate monitor beeping]

John: Hey. Sorry, he must be sleeping.

Steve: Hey, john. Come on in. Come on.

John: Hey, partner. Doctors gave me some good news here. Looks like the antidote's working a little bit. Your numbers are up, huh?

Steve: Well, yeah, the poison seems to be out of my system.

John: Yeah? But?

Kayla: But the poison may have damaged his vision permanently.

Victor: Maggie, darling, please. Please come home.

[Door opens] Maggie?

Vivian: No, darling. It's someone who actually gets you.

Victor: Oh, for god's sakes.

Vivian: Oh, victor. You're much better off without her. She's an encumbrance, a sort of proverbial ball and chain.

Victor: And you are the proverbial pain in my ass. So just get out.

Vivian: But, victor, we have business to discuss.

Victor: Business? I have no business with you.

Vivian: Well, you could. With me, my son, stefan. He could be the key to our future.


Chad: Stefan. You got a sec?

Stefan: Gabby. Gabby, you need to hide.

Gabby: Why should I?

Stefan: Because chad is on the other side of that door. Come on.

[Knock at door]

Chad: Stefan?

Stefan: Hide now. Now, wait, wait. What are you doing?

Gabby: I'm letting him in.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."

[Soft orchestration]


Hope: Rafe, wait. What are you doing?

Rafe: I found this creeper outside trying to break in.

Hope: No, no, no, no, no. Rafe, let him go. Let him-- he's--he's not here to rob us. He's here to marry us.

If you could just le--

Rafe: Julie is gonna marry us tomorrow in front of our friends and family, though.

Hope: I thought that we could have something a little more intimate... tonight, just you and me.

Rafe: So this--this guy...

Hope: He's the justice of the peace.

Rafe: Oh, okay, well...

Hope: [Laughs]

Rafe: Sorry about the, um... right.

John: Well, this--this, uh, blurry vision, it--it... could be temporary, right?

Steve: Well, it is happening all the time now. Having trouble focusing.

John: I don't understand this. The--the antidote was specifically designed to reverse the damages.

Steve: Well, it did stop my body from attacking itself, but...[Clears throat] Maybe it's just taking a little longer for it to reverse whatever's going on with my eye.

John: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. That's--that's what I'm praying for, partner, that this vision problem is just a-- just a temporary thing.

Kayla: Did you pray much when you were poisoning my husband?

Steve: Kayla. John did what he had to do.

Kayla: I'm gonna go check on those results. Excuse me.

Steve: I'm sorry about that, man. She's-- this is hard for her.

John: She's got every right to hate me. What I did could've killed you. And the man she loves, father to her children... I don't blame her in the least.

Stefan: Wait, wait, wait, no. You can't do that.

Gabby: Why not?

Stefan: If he finds us in--

[Knock at door]

Chad: Stefan.

Stefan: If he finds us in here together, it raises a whole lot of questions about andre's death. Things are complicated enough, don't you think?

[Tense music]


Chad: Hey.

Stefan: Sorry, I was changing. May I help you?

Chad: Uh...

[Stammers] Yes, is somebody, uh, in here? I heard voices.

Stefan: It's just me, as you can see. Come on in.

Chad: Sounded like there was somebody--I could've swore that there was somebody in here.

Stefan: Yeah, it was my mother in here. Speakerphone.

Chad: Sounded like she was in the room.

Stefan: Yeah, gotta love that crystal clear reception, hmm?

Chad: Right.

Stefan: You seem disappointed, chad.

Chad: No, uh, no. I mean, I'm just curious.

Stefan: Is that because, uh, you didn't come in here and find a woman who looks exactly like gabi hernandez? And that's what you're hoping, right?

Chad: Abby told me about, uh-- she told me that she told you about my suspicions.

Stefan: She did, but, uh, your suspicions are nonsense.

Chad: Gabi's innocent.

Stefan: Sure about that?

Chad: Uh, yeah, 'cause the-- the power was turned off and then turned right back on the night that andre was murdered, so...

Stefan: That--that's really an interesting hypothesis, chad. But there are two fundamental flaws in your theory. One, I didn't sabotage the company. Two, I didn't even meet andre until I came to salem.

Chad: Well, you'll-- you'll understand if I don't take your word for it.

Stefan: Didn't expect you to. But I need you to back off the accusations.

Chad: I'm gonna find out what happened that night, one way or another.

Stefan: Well, I'd be careful what you wish for. Might not like what you find.

Chad: What's that supposed to mean?

Hope: Mr. Friedman, I am so sorry, about everything-- the rain, the confusion.

Rafe: Yeah, maybe if my fiancée would've let me in on her secret little plan...

Hope: Here, let me take this for you. If you'd like to dry off, uh, bathroom's that way.

Rafe: I am sorry, truly. I'm very sorry.

No worries. Jumpy grooms are part of the package.

Rafe: Yeah.

Hope: Thank you.

Rafe: You.

Hope: What?

Rafe: [Chuckles] See, now I know, this whole weekend getaway, it's about a lot more than just getting away from the rehearsal dinner, isn't it?

Hope: Yes, it is. It's just about you and me and the stars... somewhat.

Rafe: I love it. I do. I mean... you, me, justice of the peace-- pretty much my idea of the perfect wedding. Although I do think that you may have overlooked one little hitch.

Claire: You are the best, grandma, really.

Marlena: [Chuckles] Oh.

Claire: This is exactly what I needed.


Marlena: Wow, it's quiet here.

Claire: Mm-hmm. Well, tripp has a shift, and, um, ciara's making that stupid montage for grandma hope's wedding.

Marlena: Oh. I thought you and ciara were getting along better. I mean, after that close call.

Claire: Yeah, no, I mean, she--she's fine. She's a hero. Tripp's a hero. They're heroes together. Yeah, of course, I'm so glad that they're okay. Of course I am. It's just... you think you know someone. You really think you know something. And then it just turns out that you don't know anything at all, and then once you do know that something, you just have no clue what to do about it, and you kind of wish that you didn't know.

Marlena: Huh. Is that what you wanted to talk to me about?

Claire: It's a secret, grandma. It's--it's a crazy, big, huge, horrible secret, and I don't know what to do. Please, you have to promise me that you're not gonna tell anyone.

Marlena: Okay, I will. Within reason.

Hope: Rafe cheated on hope. He hooked up with sami.

Victor: Whatever you and your genetically challenged son are selling, I am not interested.

Vivian: I-I'm not suggesting you buy anything or hire stefan. I'm actually proposing a-- drumroll, please-- merger.

Victor: A merger? Between my company and stefano dimera's? Are you insane?

Vivian: Well, I think the word you're looking for is "inspired." I mean, it's a win-win situation for both of us.

Victor: Actually, no venture you're involved in could have the word "win" in it. Or "sane," for that matter.

Vivian: But, victor, I--

Victor: Don'T. Forget it. No way am I entering into a professional relationship with you.

Vivian: All right, fine. Well, until I can...

[Sighs] Convince you otherwise, how about a personal relationship?

Victor: Mm.

Stefan: I don't get it.

[Clears throat] You're convinced that our brother helped me screw you out of dimera, right? It's a known fact that andre stole gabi's company right out from underneath her, so why do you care if his killer is brought to justice?

Chad: Did he have his flaws? Yes. Did he try to screw me over in the end? Yes. But I loved him because he helped abby through the toughest time of her life. And for that, I will forever be grateful. And for that, I owe him everything.

Stefan: Well, you have at it, brother. You just leave me the hell out of it. Trust me, you're wasting your time.

Chad: What? Trust you? You're a--you're a liar and a cheat, and now quite possibly, a murderer.

Stefan: Oh, for god's sake, do you think I'm guilty?

Chad: Mm-hmm.

Stefan: Hmm? Then go ahead. Search my room. Go ahead.

Rafe: Julie is gonna kill you.

Hope: What?

Rafe: She got ordained just to marry us.

Hope: No, no, no. She'll understand.

Rafe: Oh, yeah, you know, you're right, yeah. She's super chill like that.

Hope: Rafe, I am telling you. You kidding? She is a romantic. She would love that we did this.

Rafe: You're brave.

Hope: Yeah.

Rafe: You...

Hope: Okay, but you know what? Don't worry. No, rafe, have faith, okay? We are--we're gonna tell julie. Just... it's going to be when we tell everyone else, at the same time. At the party.

Rafe: Oh, good.

Hope: Yeah.

Rafe: Witnesses.

Hope: Which--you know what? We are really going to enjoy. Why? Because we will already be married. You see? Stress-free celebration. Right? Da-da-da-da!

Rafe: Okay, okay. [Laughs]

Hope: Okay?

Rafe: Okay, I'm in, all right? I'm sold.

Hope: You sure? You sold?

Rafe: Yes, yes, I'm sold.

Hope: Okay. You like the idea?

Rafe: Wait, don't we need a witness, though?

Hope: No, I already checked. You don't need one in this county.

Rafe: Okay.

Hope: Yeah.

Rafe: But what about wedding attire? I mean, I only have--

Hope: Come on, come on.

Rafe: What?

Hope: I think-- I think we look great.

Rafe: You sure? Really?

Hope: Yes. Are you sure? Yes!

Rafe: I'm gonna marry you in a t-shirt?

Hope: In a t-shirt.

Rafe: Okay, yeah. This is my favorite wedding.

[Laughter] What about rings?

Hope: Oh, hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Okay.

Rafe: You brought them.

Hope: Of course I brought them. You know what else I brought?

Rafe: Lazo?

Hope: Yeah.

Rafe: Oh, my god. Have I told you--have I told you how much I love you in the last 20 minutes?

Hope: Tell me again.

Rafe: I love you. I...

[Tender music]

[Coughing] Ahem.

Hope: Oh.

I think you're getting a little ahead of yourselves.

Marlena: So... rafe was cheating on hope with my daughter sami?

Claire: Yes.

Marlena: When was that?

Claire: Uh, I guess when sami was in town to see will.

Marlena: You guess? How do you even know about this?

Claire: From ciara.

Marlena: Ciara knows too.

Claire: Yeah, it's terrible, isn't it?

Marlena: How does ciara know about it?

Claire: Okay, I guess she-- she saw them, maybe.

Marlena: So that's a lot of guessing. Why don't you tell me exactly what ciara said?

Claire: Okay, well, I didn't actually talk to ciara, exactly.

Marlena: Honey, this is a very serious allegation. I need you to give me just the facts as you know them.

Claire: Okay, well, I--it's all right here on my phone.

John: Hey, partner. I'm more sorry than you're ever gonna know.

Steve: John. You did what the situation required, what we were trained to do.

John: Yeah, and it all went to hell, didn't it? Your son could've died. I don't know how you can ever forgive that.

Steve: Come on, john. You've saved my life more times than I can count. Come on.

[Door opens]

John: All right.

[Tense music]

Steve: What is it?

Kayla: John, I'd like to speak to my husband privately.

John: Yeah, yeah.

Steve: No, come on. Can john stay? Let john stay. He should hear this too, baby. What'd the doctor say? Got the results back?

Kayla: Yes.

Steve: And?

Kayla: It's what I was afraid of. You're losing your sight.

Victor: Personal relationship? With you? First of all, the very thought of it makes my skin crawl. And secondly, I'm a married man.

Vivian: Apparently not for long.

Victor: What have you heard?

Vivian: I saw maggie check into the salem inn, and she was loaded for bear. She raked you over the coals.

Victor: Oh, I'm sure she couldn't wait to confide in you, a woman she loathes with every fiber of her being. A woman who tried to bury her alive.

Vivian: Oh, let's not dwell on the past. Let's talk about us, now, in this very precious moment.

Victor: No moment that you're in is precious, vivian.

Vivia on:H, victor. I could be the lady to your macbeth, the hepburn to your tracy, the lucy to your schroeder.

Victor: Oh, talk about looney tunes.

Vivian: I could also give you a lovely piece of heaven.

Victor: Oh, my god, my eyes!

Kayla: The poison damaged your cornea. And that's why you've had blurred vision.

Steve: Well, but I took the antidote, so that should reverse itself, right?

Kayla: The antidote stopped your body from attacking itself. But it can't undo the damage caused to your cornea.

Steve: [Sighs] Okay. So we caught it in time. I mean, blurred vision is better than no vision at all, right?

Kayla: I'm afraid that it's going to get... it's gonna get progressively worse. It could be just a matter of time before you are completely blind.

Stefan: Go ahead. Go for it. Search every inch. In fact, start here. Start here. What do you say, huh? Or let's try here. Let's try here, shall we, huh? Come on. Come on, chad, it's your big chance. Big chance--find the murder weapon. Prove to the world that I'm a killer.

Chad: [Laughs] Hell of a show, but, uh, no. If you had something incriminating, I don't think you'd be hiding it here, so I will pass. But I do know this. You're hiding something, and I will find it.

Stefan: Fine. I-I really hope this means you're done pretending to play nice.

Chad: Mm. I prefer you know exactly how I feel about you.

Stefan: Oh, no, no. I-I know exactly how you feel. In the last 24 hours, you've accused me of...[Sniffles] Murdering our brother, framing an innocent woman, and trying to steal your wife.

Chad: Yep, that's about it.

Stefan: Right. That's how you feel? Feel free to move out.

Chad: Abby and I will be gone within the hour.

Stefan: Wait.

[Groans] Whatever you and I think of each other, there's no reason that, uh, abigail and thomas should have to move out.

Chad: Even though I'm gonna turn your life upside down trying to prove that you murdered--

Stefan: I-I--you know, I can't stop you from doing that. But when you realize the truth, I'll expect an apology.

[Tense music]

Claire: You heard it, right? Ciara freaked out when she thought that grandma hope knew the truth about rafe and sami sleeping together.

Marlena: Help me with something. Why did you record that?

Claire: I knew that ciara told tripp a big secret. And I thought that it was about me or theo, so... I mean, what choice did I have?

Marlena: Oh, claire.

Claire: What? What, so now I'm the bad guy? Look, grandma, I completely understand. I-I completely understand that it was not my finest moment, but isn't it good that we know the truth? And doesn't grandma hope have the right to know before she marries a man who cheated on her?

Would you like to say a few words?

Hope: Uh, uh, I'll-- I'll go first. Yeah. Since I--you know, I kinda surprised my groom with this.

Rafe: Yeah. Kinda.

Hope: [Exhales joyfully] Rafe... you're my partner. You are my friend. And you are my lover. Sorry.


Rafe: [Mumbles]

Hope: You know, even before we were romantically involved, you were always so wonderful to me and to ciara. I know that... our beginning wasn't easy. I was broken. And, um, it was really hard for me to trust. Every time I tried to push you away, you never turned your back on me. You were always there. You were always protecting me.

Rafe: Hope, hope--

Hope: And--no, wait, wait, wait, wait, please. You were always comforting me. Always. You've risked everything for me. Everything.

[Laughs] And, you know, um, marriage--it's a risk. But risking my heart for the man that-- that I love so deeply and trust with all of my heart is no risk at all. I love you.

Mr. Hernandez?

Rafe: I have a confession to make.

Patrick woke up with

a sore back.

[Ominous music]

Stefan: Ow, what was that for?

Gabby: You scared me half to death. I mean, you told chad to come in here? What if he would've found me? What if he would've found the lid?

Stefan: You were the one that was about to invite him in for a chitchat.

Gabby: I was screwing with you. I mean, offering for him to come in here and search the room might be the stupidest idea ever.

Stefan: It was a gambit, and it worked.

Gabby: Oh, this time. Look, you need to stop acting like this is one of your little chess games, because there is more at stake than little men on a board.

Stefan: Isn't the whole point of chess to protect the queen?

Gabby: Well, I wasn't feeling too protected.

Stefan: Maybe you should just trust me.

Gabby: I'll sleep on it. And why don't you show me where that lid to tony's urn is, and I will get out of here?

Stefan: Nice try.

Gabby: Hmm.

Stefan: When will I see you again?

Gabby: Sounds like someone's gonna miss me.

Stefan: Let's just say that, uh, I'm intrigued by you. I wanna know you.

Gabby: Yeah, don't worry. I'll come out when I can. I'll see you around.

Marlena: Okay. We just heard ciara say she kept the secret because she knows how much her mother loves rafe, and she wants them to be happy.

Claire: Right, well, maybe that's what she says, but... just think about it. What if ciara has a plan? Because if rafe and hope get married, then ciara has a secret that can blow them up at any time that she wants. What?

Marlena: I think it's admirable that you want to protect grandma hope because you want her to be happy, but I think you have to examine your own motivation here.

Rafe: I need to be honest with you, and, um, there's something that, uh, um...

Hope: It's okay. It's okay. You don't need to say anything.

Rafe: No, I-I just... I didn't prepare any vows, so I-- I was gonna write 'em tonight, but then, uh, he came, and so I just--I didn't really have the time. Oh, god, I'm w-- marrying the woman of my dreams, so... you're... the most beautiful, the strongest, incredible woman that I've ever met in my life. And... you take my breath away every day. Today, for instance, you were with ciara, and I was just-- I was watching you. You were laughing, and you-- you were smiling, and... love that you give, I-- I want that. I want that every single day of my life. And I want you in my life, forever. The lazo. The lazo, as you know, signifies a lifetime of love and commitment, and I... am committed to giving you a lifetime of love and respect that you deserve.

[Tender music]

I, rafe, take you, hope, to be my lawfully wedded wife.

Hope: I, hope, take you, rafe, as my lawfully wedded husband.


Rafe: To have and to hold from this day forward...

Hope: For better, for worse...

[Laughs] For richer, for poorer...

Rafe: In sickness and in health, forsaking all others...

Hope: Till death do us part.

Rafe: Yeah.

Hope: Yeah.



By the power vested in me, I now pronounce rafael alejandro hernandez and hope alice williams brady husband and wife.

Hope: Oh, my god.

You may kiss the bride.

[Muffled laughter]

Hope: Ah! [Laughs]

Rafe: God. Come here.

Hope: We did it. Little dakota's nose was quivering in fear.

Hope: Mm, mr. Friedman, thank you so much, um, for coming out.

Rafe: Yeah, again, I'm so sorry about the, uh, confusion.

It's already forgotten.

Rafe: Okay.

I, uh-- I wish you every happiness.

Hope: Thank you, thank you.

[Tender music]

Rafe: Bye. Be safe.


Hope: Husband.


Rafe: Luckiest husband in the world. Champagne?

Hope: Yeah, of course.

Rafe: Yeah.

Hope: Yes, yes.

Rafe: God!

Hope: Oh, my god, we made it.

Rafe: Here, here, here.

Hope: I can't believe it.

Rafe: Oh, I can't believe it. I wanna call someone or text someone or post something to-- to our friends, to our families. You know what? It doesn't even have to-- I don't care. It could be to anyone. Could be to a stranger. I just--we did it!

Hope: We did it.

Rafe: We did it.

Hope: We are married, but you know what? You have to wait until tomorrow.

Rafe: What?

Hope: Because right now, it is just between you and me. And the stars.

Rafe: And the rain.

Hope: And the rain.

Rafe: Ah, you know what?

Hope: What?

Rafe: I wanna propose a toast.

Hope: Okay.

Rafe: To... my bride, my wife, the love of my life. To a lifetime of love and happiness. I love you, hope.

Hope: I love you. I love you.

Rafe: Mmm.

Claire: Whoa, whoa, I--no. My only motive here is to protect grandma hope from rafe, 'cause once a dirty, rotten cheater, always a cheater, right?

Marlena: Are you sure you don't wanna stir up trouble for ciara?

Claire: No, oh, my--I mean, yeah, she's a total pain, but I swear that is not why I wanna tell grandma hope the truth. It's only because I love her so much, and I just want to make her happy.

Marlena: And you think hearing this would make her feel happy? Honey, you need to think long and hard before you do something that would be so destructive for this whole family.

John: I don't even know what to say.

Kayla: You should go.

John: I'll check in on you later, partner.

[Tense music]

I'm sorry, man.

Kayla: I cannot even look that man in the eyes.

Steve: Kay. Kayla, can we just forget about that for a minute? Is there anything we can do to reverse this?

Kayla: The specialist is looking into all the options.

Steve: So there are options?

Kayla: Maybe.

Steve: Maybe. I'll take that.

Victor: Oh, for god's sake. Cover yourself up. Since you're obviously deluded or demented-- and my guess is both-- I am very much in love with my wife, and no way will you talk me into any sort of a personal relationship.

Vivian: Well, I think you're the deluded and demented one, victor, to think maggie would come back to you.

Victor: Oh, as if you had any insight into her or me or our marriage.

Vivian: Well, I know you must've done something pretty naughty to drive away that codependent, clingy woman.

Victor: My focus right now is in driving you away. If you know what's good for you, you will march your bony ass out of here before I drag you out by the hair.

Vivian: Is that a threat?

Victor: It's a promise.

Vivian: Well, then here's mine. Now that my son is the head of the venerable dimera family, we're gonna come after you and your beloved company. And when we do, we won't show any mercy.

[Dramatic music]

[Mischievous music]

Stefan: Okay, abigail. Let's figure out what's going on in that head of yours.

Abigail: Hey.


Chad: I've been looking all over for you. I didn't know you came to bed.

Abigail: I don't even remember coming up here. Must've been really tired.

Chad: Yeah, you-- you slept in this morning too. Everything okay?

Abigail: Yeah, I think I'm just stressed, with andre's murder and everything. But I think I'm fine.

Chad: I know you are. Okay? I'm gonna go change.

[Ominous flute music]

Kayla: Too bad your good friend john didn't research his poisons a little more closely.

John: John had no choice. He was trying to protect his family. And ours.

Kayla: Well, he came up a little short, didn't he?

Steve: Baby, come on, you saw him. He feels terrible.

Kayla: You know, I don't care about him. I don't care about his feelings. All I care about is you and what this means to you-- your life, your future. If you lose your vision because of this man...

Steve: No, listen, come here. Sweetness. Listen to me. We've faced worse before. We've played the long odds and won... many times. And we're gonna do it again. We're gonna get through this, together. Okay? Come here.

[Stirring music]

John: [Sniffles]


Marlena: Oh, john, john, I'm so sorry to keep you waiting. Who would've thought that having ice cream with claire would've taken-- what's wrong? What's happened? Honey? Oh, honey, what? What?

John: [Exhales deeply]

[Pensive music]

Claire: There's still time left. At least she hasn't married him yet.

[Romantic music]

Mm, mm


kissing you is like

a fantasy

every dream

is now reality

Heaven is here

in your eyes

one look

and I'm mesmerized

I found paradise
