Chad: See, remember-- I remember holding you in my arms when you were first born. And this--this feeling came over me. I had this... maybe I... I sensed this deep connection that we had had, like a-- like I knew I was your father. It's just this wave that came over me. Did you sense that too? Huh? I bet you did.
Julie: Now, there's a sight, a sight for sore eyes.
Gabi: If you're here to gloat, then you can just turn around and leave.
Abigail: Uh, that's not why I'm here. We have unfinished business.
Gabi: I turned myself in, admitted to what I did to you. What else is there to say?
Abigail: Oh... trust me, bitch. I have plenty more to say.
Kayla: Jj, thank you for coming. We really need to talk.
Jj: I... I guess you heard the news.
Kayla: Well, things don't stay quiet around here for very long, which is why I really wish you would have come to me first.
Jj: Wait? What?
Kayla: I heard that haley tried to commit suicide and that you covered it up.
Jack: Hello again. Jennifer?
Jennifer: I'm sorry. I-I still can't believe that--that you're here. You look really good for a man that's been dead for six years.
Jack: I...try to stay out of the sun.
[Soft dramatic music]
Can I do something for you?
Jennifer: Yes. Um, are you alone?
Jack: Eve went out. Why?
Jennifer: I just want to talk to you... just the two of us. I-I want to help trigger your memory. Is that something you would be willing to try?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Eve: [Sighs] My god, xander, you scared me half to death.
Xander: Yeah, well, I have to be in stealth mode. After all, I'm still a wanted man.
Eve: Oh! And all you did was try to kill marlena evans on her wedding day.
Xander: It's not like she was my actual target.
Eve: [Scoffs] Are you still bummed that your great plan got all messed up?
Xander: By sami brady, no surprise.
Eve: Oh, come on, you can't blame sami. It was that totally deranged kristen dimera that messed everything up for you.
Xander: Careful there. If it wasn't for the "totally deranged" kristen D., Well, you couldn't have waltzed back into town with jack deveraux.
Jack: It's been six years, and my life has been a blank. I don't think there's anything that you can do.
Jennifer: No, please, if you just give me a chance. I brought this, um, photo album of our life together and of our family, and if we can just look at it. Just look. No expectations. Just look at the pictures. No pressure.
[Soft dramatic music]
Jack: I don't know what to offer-- uh, coffee, water, scotch?
Jennifer: No. I'm good. I'm fine. I'm--I'm just gonna sit right here, and you come on over here and sit down. You sit right there, jack. Okay. I just want to show you. Right here, this--this is our family. This is the last picture that we took together, jack. This is abigail, and this is jj. And you met jj last night at the party, and abigail, you'll meet her very soon.
Jack: She came by earlier.
Jennifer: She did?
Jack: Yes. Lovely young woman. I suppose I can forgive her for making me a grandparent twice over.
Jennifer: I've forgiven her for that too.
[Laughs] Did seeing her spark any memories, any at all, jack?
Jack: No...nothing. And I think we have to assume that if my children can't spark any memories, then there's nothing you can do. Enamel is the strong, white, outer layer
Eve: You know, I don't know kristen deserves credit for my reunion with jack. And I know that she and her crazy family kept him alive, but you were the one that approached me in november.
Xander: But as I recall, you weren't too happy to see me at first.
Eve: I never thought that you would call.
[Laughs] Xander. What--what are you doing here? I thought I was--I was meeting--
Xander: Brady, right? Of course, I had to make you think that. Otherwise you wouldn't have showed up.
Eve: Very clever. All right, you know what? I'm outta here.
Xander: Don't be hasty, please.
Eve: What, are you gonna hit on me again?
Xander: No, I wouldn't dream of it. But... I think you're gonna want to hear what I have to say. Give me five minutes.
Eve: All right, you have four minutes and 59 seconds. Actually, I want to know why and how you thought I was in new york in the first place.
Xander: Oh, I hear lots of things, like, for instance, the fact that you and brady are done-zo.
Eve: And why do you care?
Xander: Well, I'm partly responsible. I brought your sister back into your lives.
Eve: What, and you feel you owe me? Mm, why don't I believe that? No, the only person who put the final nail in that coffin was little miss goody two-shoes.
Xander: I assume you mean jennifer horton.
Eve: Yes, I mean jennifer horton. That little lying bitch. But you know what? She is gonna get hers. I'm gonna see to it personally. Yeah, I made that vow right before I left town.
Xander: Hmm. I guessed you'd make a vow like that... which is why I need a few more minutes of your time. You see... I have in my possession the perfect instrument for your revenge.
Jennifer: This is one of my favorites, jack. This is from our first wedding.
Jack: First wedding? How many did we have?
Jennifer: Uh, actually two. But that's below the salem average, trust me. And we honeymooned in hollywood.
Jack: We looked very happy.
Jennifer: We were. We were so happy. And aside from our children being born, that was the very best day of my life.
Jack: Show me more.
Jennifer: Okay. Oh, right here. This is, um-- we lived in london, jack, and--and we worked there, and... it was wonderful. Um... oh, here's jj. Look at jj in his stroller. He hated that stroller. He would scream every time we put him in it. He just hated it.
Jack: Maybe he just wanted to be held?
Jennifer: Yeah, exactly. All the time. And you gave in to him every time, jack, and you'd pull him up out of that stroller and you would... you would carry him on your shoulders. I-I know I have a picture of that somewhere in here. Um...
Jj: Aunt kayla, I thought you were talking about--
Kayla: Look, I understand that you were trying to protect haley from seth burns, but this is something that i really should have been notified about.
Jj: Okay, I'm--I'm sorry. It's-- she--she wasn't in a good place when I found her, and--and I-I didn't want to make things worse. So what--what are you going to do?
Kayla: Well, this isn't something that I can ignore. I mean, I have guidelines I need to follow when one of my nurses tries to take her own life, especially on the job.
Haley: Oh, my god. You told her?
Julie: It thrills me to see you here holding your baby daughter in your arms.
Chad: Well, thanks to you. You were--you were a huge part of the truth coming out, julie.
Julie: Well... now the terrible wrong has been righted, all that's left is for you and abigail to be together again to raise your children. Oh, chad. Abigail really needs you, especially now, now that her father's back. I mean, it's wonderful in its way that he's here, but he doesn't remember her or any of the family or anything, really.
Chad: I know. It's really rough right now. But unfortunately she-- I wish there was something I could do to help, but she--she won't let me right now.
Abigail: You know, I keep asking myself how I didn't see it, and what I come up with is that I was just so grateful. I was so grateful to be consoled by one of my closest friends at a time when I was so vulnerable. And now, of course, I realize that that wasn't a moment of real friendship. That was just you scheming together this master plan you had, right? Hmm?
Gabi: Well, I mean, i resented you, abigail. I hated you and your alters for what you did to me. I mean, I was trying to be the bigger person. I was trying to stuff those feelings down.
Abigail: Okay, and what changed?
Gabi: What changed was a visit that I had with kayla where she told me that i would never be able to carry another child to term. She stepped outside to take an emergency call and left me there in shock with the news that I would never be able to give arianna a brother or a sister. That's when a lab technician came in and dropped an envelope for kayla with your name on it that it was chad, not stefan, that was charlotte's biological father. Now, you can understand how that would hit me, how it would seem unfair that during this time where my entire life was crashing down around me, you were getting everything you wanted--again. Miss happily ever after. And before I even realized what I was doing... I changed the results. The only thing that was running through my mind was that you needed to suffer the same way that I was suffering, no matter the cost.
As someone in witness protection,
Haley: Why would you betray me like that, jj? Blabbing to my boss about the worst night of my life?
Jj: I didn't say anything. I-I-I swear.
Haley: What? Did she just pull that out of the air?
Kayla: You know, haley, haley, it wasn't jj. Kelly came to me and told me what's up. And she did the right thing. It's a very serious matter.
Haley: I can explain.
[Cell phone beeps]
Kayla: Oh, I'm sorry. I, um--I'm needed in the nicu. When I get back, we're gonna talk about this, all right? Until then, you're off duty.
Haley: I guess I owe you an apology.
Jj: No, no, no, no. I'm the one who owes you one.
Julie: I'm sorry abigail is being so...distant. But, you know, she felt betrayed and not just by you-- by this whole family. It's cold comfort, but... I believe, in time, all of these relationships can be repaired.
Chad: You believed in her. I should have.
Julie: Oh, don't be so hard on yourself. Gabi hernandez, she went to enormous lengths to make everybody believe that abigail was ill again.
Chad: You saw through it, though.
Julie: Well... I saw it through a different lens. If I hadn't known better, I would have agreed with everyone else that abby's alter was back.
Chad: But you did know better. You had all the same evidence that I did, and you had her back. I'm her husband. I should have. I let her down.
Abigail: All you wanted was for me to suffer. You know, I keep thinking back to that shattering moment when i opened the results and I saw...
[Sighs] I saw stefan's name there, and you just sat there, gabi. You just sat there in silence. You didn't say a damn word. I almost had an abortion.
Gabi: [Scoffs] I never wanted you to abort chad's baby. I was the one trying to talk you out of it.
Abigail: Talk me out of it, right, except you never said the one thing that would've stopped me. You never said that that child wasn't conceived in rape.
Gabi: But you were stopped. I made sure of that. I even went to stefan so that he could "accidentally" see the test results.
Abigail: You let me tell chad that the baby wasn't his, and you stood by me in that anguish. And that wasn't even enough for you, gabi. You just kept going. You amped up your plan even further. You made sure that I was sent to bayview so that you and chad-- god, so you guys could raise my children without me. I hurt you that badly?
Gabi: Yeah. Yes, abigail, you did.
Xander: So when I dropped this on you in the big apple, well, I just knew those pretty little ears would perk up at the word "revenge."
Eve: Yes, they did, 'cause I was dreaming of a way that I could pay jennifer back for torpedoing my life. But never, ever in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine what you had in mind. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't want to cause her any physical harm.
Xander: Understood. You just want to shatter her delicate psyche, for which I have the perfect weapon.
Eve: Weapon? Xander, did you not just hear what I said? I don't want to hurt her.
Xander: Relax. Relax! I'm just-- I'm not talking about guns and bombs. I'm talking about a living, breathing weapon.
Eve: What the hell were you just doing just now?
Xander: I was giving a signal so my friend would know to make his grand entrance.
Eve: Your friend?
Xander: Well, to be fair, I only just met him last year. You've known him a lot longer.
[Door lock beeps]
Eve: [Gasps] Oh, my god.
Jennifer: You don't remember any of that at all?
Jack: It's like looking at the life of a complete stranger.
Jennifer: You felt no connection, jack?
Jack: I warned you not to get your hopes up.
Jennifer: I mean, it was just the first try. I do know it's probably gonna take some time. But I do really believe that you're going to get your memory back.
Jack: My life has been a complete blank for the last six years. I remember nothing before my accident.
Jennifer: What about after the accident, jack? You fell down an elevator shaft, and the paramedics said that you died instantly. How did you survive, and where have you been all this time?
Haley: Why would you apologize? I totally blew up at you.
Jj: Look, I-I meant for last night, because I-I talked you into coming to this new year's eve party, and, um, I told you it was gonna be fun, and you walked into A... bizarre family drama.
Haley: It's okay. I got home safe.
Jj: Thanks to dr. Shah. But I'm--I'm sorry that I bolted so quickly.
Haley: No, that's-- that's ridiculous. You found out your father was still alive. And there he was, after all those years. For him to just look you in the eyes and not know who you are, I... I can't imagine how painful that must have been for you.
Jj: It was rough. But it was ten times worse on my mom.
Jack: I have so few answers. From what I understand, I was in a coma. And when I finally came to, I was in really bad shape.
Jennifer: I can't even imagine.
Jack: But I was slowly nursed back to health by this brilliant but very peculiar doctor.
Jennifer: Do you remember his name?
Jack: Oh, yes, yes, yes. He had a very unusual name. Uh, dr. Wilhelm rolf.
Jennifer: Dr. Rolf?
Jack: You know him?
Jennifer: Yes, I know him. He worked for stefano dimera. I should have known that that family was involved in this, jack.
Jack: That name doesn't ring a bell, but, uh, I-I-I really had no contact with anyone other than this-- this big, burly man who was taking care of me. Uh, he had an unusual name too: Xander.
Jennifer: Xander cook?
Jack: You know him too?
Jennifer: Yes, dr. Rolf and xander cook, they were last seen in nashville.
Jack: Well, that's where I was. I was in nashville right up to a couple of months ago in a private medical facility there. It was the--the last in a long chain of private clinics over the years.
Jennifer: Okay, so wait. You were with ej dimera, then. Although you said that name doesn't ring a bell.
Jack: No. No, no, it--it doesn'T. I mean, I-I... although eve did say something about an ej being there. But I-I don't know. I never saw anyone, so I couldn't say for sure.
Jennifer: Were you in the building when it blew up?
Jack: Yes. Oh, yes, yes. Xander got me out.
Jennifer: Wait a minute. So xander survived? Where is he right now?
Jack: I couldn't tell you that. We went separate ways when he reunited me with eve.
Jennifer: Reunited you with eve? How has that been, jack?
Jack: Uh, fine. I'm very much at ease with her.
Jennifer: Really? What exactly did eve tell you about your marriage?
Jack: To her? Uh, we were very much in love, but life got in the way, and we grew apart.
Jennifer: Really? Life just got in the way?
Jack: Is that not accurate?
Jennifer: Jack, that is an understatement of gigantic proportions. Let me tell you all about eve.
Eve: Oh, and when jack walked into that motel room...[Sighs] I thought I was hallucinating. I couldn't believe my eyes. How... how--how can this be? I mean, is this-- is this really you?
Jack: I'M...jack deveraux. And you are?
Eve: I'm-- I'm eve...donovan. I'm-- I was your ex-wife.
Jack: You and I were... married?
Eve: [Stammering] Well, you don't remember any of this?
Jack: [Stammering] I... I'm sorry. I... I have suffered memory loss.
Xander: An unfortunate side effect of the drug that saved your life. My business partner's family, they rescued him, brought him back from the brink of death, and then hired me to keep an eye on him and make sure he continued to make progress.
Eve: Wait, your business partner's family?
Xander: Well, they heard my sterling reputation as A... caretaker. And as you can see, I was doing quite well until the wonder twins showed up and the entire facility went kaboom.
Eve: Okay, wait. So jack was at the same facility as ej dimera is what you're saying.
Xander: That's right. But he's in much better shape 'cause he had almost two years of rehab over ej.
Eve: [Gasps] It's--it's incredible.
Xander: Jack... would you mind heading back to the other room? I think eve could use a little bit of time to, you know, digest all this.
Jack: I understand. It was nice meeting you, eve.
Eve: Yeah, jack. Oh, my god. It's like... what's wrong with him? What--what-- it's vacant. What is it?
Xander: It's like he said. He has no memory of you or anybody else, including jennifer... which you can use to your benefit.
Xander: Come on, eve. What could be a better way to shatter ms. Horton's psyche and get your revenge than to turn the one true love of her life against her?
-These people, they speak a language we cannot understand.
Julie: Stop blaming yourself. You know, it's not that you don't know your wife well enough. You just didn't know gabi hernandez well enough.
Chad: I should have. I thought she was one of my closest friends.
Julie: Yeah, well... maybe that blinded you to some of her more unfortunate traits of character?
Chad: I should have known.
Julie: Stop it with the "shoulda" and the "coulda." It doesn't help. Just face the fact you're a good-hearted person, like jennifer is a good-hearted person. So you couldn't imagine anybody could be so calculating and so cruel.
Chad: You calling me naive?
Julie: No, darling, I'm calling you pure in heart.
Gabi: I mean, you go on and on about how I'm this evil person, but I mean, how different are we really? You lied about me in a court of law, framed me for murder, kept me from my daughter for months.
Abigail: I was sick, and i have taken responsibility. I have admitted that. I have apologized.
Gabi: Yeah, well, and, what, "sorry" is gonna make it all okay? Because of you, arianna's traumatized. Because of you, I will never have children. Because of you, I have been living a nightmare. So yeah, I-I get it. I-I've done horrible things to you... because of the unspeakable things that you have done to me. The only difference is, abigail, I didn't have an alter to blame it on. I didn't have another personality to hide behind.
Kayla: So, uh, haley, are you ready to talk?
Haley: I have to update shelley on, um, some patients. Can I do that first?
Kayla: Please. And then let's meet in my office, all right?
Jj: You know--you know, uh, maybe she'll tell you why she wanted to take her life, because she won't talk to me, and...she doesn't want to talk to eric.
Kayla: Well, she's lucky that you are looking out for her.
Jj: If anyone can relate, you know?
Kayla: I know, baby. All right, I'll see you later, all right?
Jj: Kayla, since... since you--you haven't mentioned it, I'm not sure if you heard. My dad's alive. Yeah, I saw him with my own eyes. He's alive. He's back in salem.
Jack: The only reason that eve and I got married was money?
Jennifer: Yes, jack. She was determined to inherit $10 million from you.
Jack: We weren't in love with each other?
Jennifer: No, no! Hardly. And after we worked things out, you got an annulment.
Jack: Was it amicable?
Jennifer: No, because you wanted your $10 million back, so she came and found us on our honeymoon to have it out with you, jack. And then she put this crazy curse on our marriage, and you know what? I'm beginning to think that it worked, because we have been torn apart by fate so many times.
Jack: No, no, no, it's not just fate. Eve told me that we had plenty of problems between us. There was a reason that we got divorced.
Jennifer: Yeah, sure. Yeah. We did--we had our ups and downs, jack. But we had something that you and eve never had together. We were so in love with each other.
Jack: "The truth is rarely pure and never simple."
Jennifer: Oscar wilde. Yes, jack. You used to quote him all the time at the newspaper. This is such a good sign. Maybe--maybe your memories aren't buried so deeply after all.
Eve: I'll admit, I wasn't convinced that your master plan would work, but, hmm, you were very persuasive. You have no idea how strongly jack and jennifer are bonded. I mean, turning jack against jennifer--
Xander: Won't be a problem. He has no memory of a bond with a jennifer. He's totally malleable right now. And since you're the only one who knows he's alive, you're the one he can be bonded to. Come on, eve. You're in total control now. And you can drop this bombshell on jennifer whenever's best for you.
Eve: All right. I'll bite. But what's the catch, hmm? 'Cause I know you're not doing this out of the kindness of your heart.
Xander: Actually, eve... I do want something in return.
Eve: And I don't know why I was surprised that you had an ulterior motive in all this.
Xander: Those are my terms. Take it or leave it.
Eve: [Sighs] Okay. Okay, okay, okay, okay. I'm willing to give you exactly what you're asking for. But what if this brilliant revenge plan of yours blows up in my face, huh? What if jack remembers everything, including his passionate love for jennifer? And then all I've done is reunite them.
Xander: I'm not unreasonable. I'll wait until you decide that the time is right to reintroduce jack to the lovely people of salem. And then if everything goes as intended... only then will I demand payment.
Eve: Since you kept up your end of the deal... here it is-- everything you asked for.
Xander: Thank you.
Xander: Wonderful. And so far, so good?
Eve: Yeah. But jack's only been in town for a day. If anything jars his memory, all this goes up in smoke.
Xander: That's not gonna happen. Trust me.
Jack: Getting my memory back... that would mean a lot to you?
Jennifer: Of course. You were the love of my life, jack.
Jack: But we weren't married when I supposedly died.
Jennifer: No. But we were reconciled.
Jack: So you want to pick up where we left off?
Jennifer: I want to know you all over again, jack. I am so happy that you're back.
Jack: What about the doctor from new year's eve?
Jennifer: I haven't been on a date with him in over a year, jack. I was trying to move on from a previous relationship. But I don't want to move on with henry. I want to move on with you.
Jack: After all this time?
Jennifer: Yes, after all this time. Because when I lost you, my heart... broke into a million pieces, and I didn't even know who I was. I didn't know how to go on. And yes, I found love again, jack, but it was never the same. I have never loved anyone the way that I loved you. The way that I still do.
Kayla: Jack's alive? My--my god. Your mom must be so happy.
Jj: You--you can't even I-imagine. But it's--it's his amnesia. Do you--do you know what happened to that stuff, that serum will used to get his memory back?
Kayla: Jj, that-- that wasn't fda approved. I had to turn over the notes and the formula to seth burns.
Jj: Is--is there any way you think you could get that back? For my dad?
Kayla: I can look into it.
Gabi: I know that what I did was wrong. But at least I have the guts to own up to it, even if it means that I will be separated again from the only child that I will ever have.
Ms. Deveraux, I'm the assistant district attorney. Da trask would love to see you. You're the key witness in this case, is that right?
Abigail: Uh, yes, I am. Uh... but you can, uh--you can tell the district attorney that I'm not going to press charges against gabi hernandez.
Xander: [Sighs] Oh, jackpot.
Jack: I'm sorry. Jennifer, I can't jump into something I don't feel.
Jennifer: No, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have pushed you.
Jack: Maybe you should go.
Jennifer: Okay. I should go. But I'm not gonna give up. I didn't fight for you hard enough last time. And I'm not gonna make that same mistake, jack.
[Door lock beeps]
Eve: I thought I told you to stay away from him!
[Sighs] Jack? Uh...what did I miss?
Jack: She and i had a long conversation. And now you and I are going to do the same. I'd like for you to explain to me, why have you been lying to me?
Kayla: Steve, oh, I'm so glad I caught you. I don't know if you've talked to adrienne, but, um, I have some really big news.
Haley: Yes, I know it could cause a lot of trouble. No, don't worry. I won't say anything to dr. Johnson.
Chad: I have a long road ahead of me to earn her forgiveness back. Any advice?
Julie: Advice? No.
Julie: I'd like to remind you of the precious things that you and abigail share: Two beautiful children of tender years and a deep and abiding love definitely worth fighting for, no matter what the odds. Don't ever give up, chad.
Abigail: I'm not pressing charges against gabi hernandez.
I'll let trask know.
Abigail: Thank you.
Gabi: I don't understand. You had me right where you wanted.
Abigail: You were right. Mental illness or not, I did unspeakable things to you, and...more importantly, I would never be able to forgive myself if I let arianna grow up without her mother. I think that we've all suffered enough, gabi.
Gabi: I-I don't-- I don't know what to say.
Abigail: Look, we're not gonna be friends after everything that we've been through, but I think that what's important is that we can try to move forward with intention and integrity and show that example to our daughters. We can focus on our children.
