Episode #13445 ~ Gabi and Stefan get into it over the future of Gabi Chic. Rafe and Hope argue about Ted. Eli and Lani hit a major snag as they build the case against Xander. Abe is furious when he learns Sheila made a costly mistake.
Provided By SuzanneAbe: Oh, you can't be serious. No, it's just that-- [Sighs] Stop. Stop. [Stammers] Look, I-I-I-I've got to deal with this right now. Sheila: What's up, boss?
Abe: You know, when someone makes a mistake... they should admit it and face the consequences.
Sheila: So what'd I do now?
Eli: Fine, have it your way. I don't need your confession. We got you dead to rights. You'll never make bail. Oh, hey, uh, congrats on, uh, rising from the dead. That was kind of cool. But your life on the outside is over.
Xander: We'll see about that.
Eric: [Sighs] Thank you again, doctor.
Sarah: Yes, well, bruised knuckles-- it's very complex stuff.
Eric: No, I mean thank you for, uh, keeping me from killing xander and calling the cops and letting them deal with him instead.
Sarah: Well... now with that scum locked up, he can't hurt anybody ever again.
Eric: Yeah. I just, um... I just wish...
Sarah: You did everything you could to save nicole. And you are doing an incredible job of honoring her memory. You made sure that her daughter is going to be well taken care of and that the man responsible for her death is going away for a very long time.
Eric: Yeah. It could've been me in prison for cutting xander's throat.
Sarah: Yeah, but thanks to you, there's one less bad guy for us all to worry about.
Eric: Nicole would be pleased about that.
Sarah: She would. You know, the more I get to know you... the more I understand why she loved you so much... and why you were so important to her-- as you are to everyone. You're a good man, eric brady.
Stefan: That's right, ladies and gentlemen, I'm a free man.
Chad: You were arrested for treason.
Stefan: Charges were dismissed. Despite both of your efforts to destroy me, I'm here to take back everything that's mine.
Hope: This was my best chance to get ben... maybe my only.
Ted: [Sighs] For what it's worth, hope, I'm--I'm really sorry.
Hope: Don't be. I know you did your best. And I appreciate it.
Ted: Hope... we're even, right?
Rafe: What the hell is this?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Rex: [Clears throat]
Sarah: Rex, what are you, stalking me?
Rex: No. I came to see my brother. I was worried about you. You okay, man?
Eric: Yeah, I'm-- I'm fine now.
Rex: Sarah told me that xander cook is back and you came here to confront him.
Eric: Yeah, sarah got here just in time to talk some sense into me.
Sarah: The cops arrested xander, and he should be looking at a nice long stretch behind bars. I'm gonna tell my mom.
Rex: Well, this is great. I mean, we should all go celebrate.
Sarah: Not a chance.
Lani: Xander seems awfully relaxed for a guy who's about to go down for attempted murder.
Eli: Nah, dude's just blowing smoke. He's gotta be sweating bullets knowing that we have video of him shooting marlena from the security footage in the square.
Lani: I want that footage cued up and ready to roll. That way, when the da gets here, we can charge xander and toss him in a cell.
[Keyboard clicking] What? This can't be right.
Eli: What is it?
Lani: The video, it--it's not here.
Eli: Let me see.
[Keyboard clicking] It looks like someone deleted the files.
Lani: That makes no sense. The video was on the server when my dad gave john black access to it.
Eli: Yeah, and john called hope to tell her that it was xander, not sami, that shot marlena.
Lani: If this footage is gone...
Eli: Xander walks.
Lani: I'm calling our it guy. Maybe he can figure this out.
Eli: No, we can't waste time. We gotta talk to abe.
Abe: This has nothing to do with you. Two vip tickets to sade.
Sheila: That show has been sold out for months. How did you even get tickets?
Abe: I shelled out big bucks for these for valerie. She's supposed to fly in from D.C., But she calls me to say she got the dates mixed up and she has to cancel because of work. Now I'm stuck with these very expensive tickets. You know, maybe I can sell them online.
Sheila: Are you crazy? Sade is, like, everything. You can't miss the chance to see her live.
Abe: I don't want to, but I'm not gonna go alone. Maybe you'd like to go with me.
Sheila: [Laughs] So there you are with your depression
Sheila: Man, I'd kill to see sade. I mean, but is that even allowed?
Abe: Is what allowed?
Sheila: I mean, you're my boss, and you just asked me on a date.
Lani: You did what, now?
Rex: You don't want to come out with us?
Sarah: Oh, I don't want to go anywhere with you ever again. I thought I made that really clear when I told you that you coming here from chicago to win me back was a giant waste of your time.
Rex: It's just a couple of drinks.
Sarah: To celebrate xander's arrest? You don't think that's a little inappropriate, given how much he's hurt eric and the people that he loves?
Rex: O-okay, yeah, that's--that's fair. Um, it's a poor choice of words. What I should have said was, he's hurting right now. This is not easy for him, and he needs our help and our support, and he shouldn't be alone right now.
Sarah: [Scoffs] I can't believe I'm saying this, but you're right. I think getting out of here for a little bit is a good idea. You two should go.
Sarah: Eric, you can call me anytime. You...lose my number.
Rex: God, she really hates me. She really likes you. Dude, you have got to do a better job of helping me out.
Rafe: You mind keeping your hands off of my wife?
Ted: I wasn'T.
Rafe: You weren't what? Now, you do realize, ted, this is the second time in as many days I've walked in and caught you two doing this hands thing.
Ted: Maybe the detectives at the salem pd would be a little bit more successful if they didn't jump to conclusions without any evidence.
Rafe: Oh, and what does that mean?
Hope: It means that stefan dimera was cleared.
Rafe: Yeah, of course he was. Well, it had nothing to do with me.
Ted: But you arrested him, didn't you?
Rafe: Yeah, on a federal charge. A friend of mine at the bureau asked me to bring him in because he was worried that the indictment would get out and stefan would flee the country.
Ted: Well, now that my cl--
Rafe: How did he get off?
Hope: Someone else, uh, confessed to using steve's bionic eye to steal classified documents.
Rafe: Oh! So someone else confessed. Wow, convenient.
Hope: Stefan had to have gotten that guy to take the fall for him.
Rafe: Yeah, of course he did. If you have any doubt, why don't we just ask his lawyer?
Stefan: First order of business: Taking back my job.
Chad: You've been fired.
Stefan: For cause... cause which no longer exists.
[Clears throat] I have a call in to shin. I requested an emergency meeting with the board to reinstate me as ceo of dimera.
Chad: Position's been filled.
Stefan: Thanks for, uh, keeping my seat warm, chad. Your time as head of this family is officially over.
Chad: I wouldn't bet on that.
Stefan: I'm sorry. Did--did you not hear what I said? The feds dropped the charges.
Chad: Even if you can convince the board that you're innocent, which I highly doubt you are, let's not forget what you've done. The board thinks you're poison.
Stefan: Speaking of poison... what are you doing here?
Gabi: Business. Chad decided to tear up my contract with dimera and give me my company back.
Stefan: Over my dead body.
Before I had the shooting,
Rafe: Well, forgive me if i am having a hard time believing that this other person just happened to come forward right around the same time that this guy signed on to represent stefan.
Hope: Rafe, come on. Ted had nothing to do with this.
Ted: Thank you for the support, hope. And just let the record show that what she really means is, I had nothing to do-- I had nothing to do with this new person coming forward. But as stefan's attorney, I will take full credit for having him released.
Rafe: Yeah, I'll bet you will. You mind getting out of here now so I can talk to my wife?
Ted: Again, I apologize, hope. I... I wish I could have given you what you wanted.
Hope: [Stammers] Rafe, look, I-I-I-I know you're upset. Please try to understand why--
Rafe: Stefan was dead in the water, okay? He was dead in the water. Then you... you threw him a lifeline by hiring that guy. And now... now my sister, who was kidnapped and terrorized by a guy, he's out there on the streets.
Stefan: Any and all transactions are on hold pending a decision on who's to be in charge of dimera.
Chad: Don't worry about it. I'll call shin. It's only gonna take two seconds to convince him and the rest of the board that reinstating you as ceo is only gonna send the stock further into the tank. I'll be right back.
Gabi: What is so funny?
Stefan: [Stammers] Chad likes to parade himself around like he's a-- like he's a heavy hitter, when he's still learning to play the game.
Gabi: Chad's run dimera and titan. He knows what he's doing.
Stefan: Oh, god love him, he tries to compete, but I beat him every single time, gabi. You see, to be a champion, you have to, uh-- you have see the whole board. And I'm always just a few moves ahead. That's how I know I'm gonna win.
Gabi: Okay, well, you clearly have something to prove to your family. I've already lost too much to get caught in the middle of another fight between you and chad.
Stefan: Is there a point to our future, gabi?
Gabi: Yeah, there is. See, you hate me, and I hate you. So why don't you just give me my damn company back and we'll never have to deal with each other again?
Rex: Everything just happened so fast, man. We were--we were gonna get married and spend our lives together, and then I...
[Sighs] I don't know. I'm just-- I mean, I'm an idiot. That's the bottom line. I don't deny that.
Eric: Sounds like you think sarah should just get over it, like it's just some minor transgression.
Rex: No, no, that's-- that's not it at all. I mean, there's no doubt that I did the worst thing I could possibly do to undermine sarah's trust in me. But I just--I can't do anything about the past, eric. I have to look to the future and--and make up for my mistake. I mean, I swear, I will never cheat on sarah again.
Eric: That's a start.
Rex: But it's not enough. I have to convince her that-- that it's out of my system, that I'm--that I'm ready to commit to her, that she's the one I love and she's the one that I want to be with and... look, I-I know it's uncomfortable that--that I'm asking you to--to go to bat for me and--and plead my case and--
Eric: Rex, listen. Like I told you, I don't think I have any sway.
Rex: I beg to differ. You two have crazy chemistry.
Eric: What do you mean?
Rex: Well, you two barely know each other and-- haven't known each other for that long, at least, and you're--[Chuckles] I mean, she trusts you, so I need you to use that to my advantage. You know what? Sorry. I mean this, man. I-I realize that I'm--I'm going on and on about trying to get back the woman that I love and enlisting your help to do it and all the while, you just lost the woman that you love. So I'm sorry. If I'm being callous, please forgive me.
Eric: No, it's fine. I understand. You're not being callous. You're on a mission. You're on a mission to get sarah back because you're passionate about her, because she's so important to you, and I get that.
Sarah: You two still here? Thought you were going out.
Eric: Sarah... you're the one who saved me from myself earlier. You're the reason that xander is behind bars. Without you, I mean, you know, there'd really be nothing to celebrate. And it would really mean a lot to me if you would come out with us.
Lani: Dad, is what sheila said true? You asked her out on a date?
Abe: You see, it-- it was valerie. She canceled on me at the last minute, and I was stuck with these tickets, and-- it's--it's not important. Did you two need something?
Eli: Yeah, it's about xander cook.
Lani: You know we have him in custody for shooting marlena evans.
Abe: Yes, a conviction should be a slam dunk. We've got him on tape pulling the trigger.
Lani: Except we don'T. The security footage from the square--it's gone.
Abe: What do you mean it's gone?
Eli: We tried to pull it up, but someone deleted it.
Abe: Well, that's impossible. The only people with access to the municipal server is my office and the salem pd. Although I did give log-in credentials to john black.
Sheila: John black? He was here the other day asking for the footage you're talking about. And I remember because you never see grade-a beefcake walking around here like that. I mean, that man was hot.
Abe: Well, john is good-looking.
Sheila: Oh, please, good-looking? Try smoking-hot with a capital s, okay? And he had the sexiest accent.
Lani: What accent?
Sheila: Sheila watkins, executive assistant to the mayor. And you are?
Xander: Black. John black. I'm not picking it up.
Sheila: So what brings you by today, mr. Black?
Xander: Oh, abe and i are old friends. Just thought I'd pop in and say hello.
Sheila: Well, sorry. He's not here. The whole office is out at some human resources training, so it's just me, all by my lonesome.
Xander: Oh, wouldn't you know it? Today of all days. So you must be very good at your job if the mayor trusts you to hold down the fort while he's gone.
Sheila: Child, that man would be lost without me. I'm reliable, punctual, organized, and I've only threw up on his shoes once.
Xander: Well, sheila, seeing as you're the real boss around here, do you think maybe you could help me out with something?
Sheila: I can try.
Xander: Abe gave me access to some security footage, and, like an idiot, I accidentally deleted the email with the log-in credentials.
Sheila: You a cop?
Sheila: Somebody forget to do their taxes?
Xander: [Laughs] That's the irs.
Xander: I'm a spy.
Sheila: Ooh, sexy.
Xander: Not nearly as sexy as you, sweetheart. About that email...
Sheila: Right. Okay, let's see here. Got it. Okay, mr. John black, superspy. I found the email abe sent you. So would you like me to resend it to the same address?
Xander: Oh, no, I'm worried I'll just make the same mistake again and lose it. Um, how about we do it the old-fashioned way and just write it down?
Abe: You didn't ask for id?
Sheila: I mean, how incompetent do you really think I am?
Hope: Once again, ted is not the reason that stefan walked.
Rafe: Stefan should be in prison for rape, kidnapping, assault, betraying his own country, for god's sakes!
Hope: We are in the horton square. Keep it down. Yes, and I agree with all of those things, but this is on the feds. Obviously they screwed up.
Hope: And as for what ted pointed out, our record on making charges stick isn't exactly stellar, so we need to keep the criticisms to ourselves, okay?
Rafe: Do we? Really? So that's it? We just--we just keep quiet? We just accept the fact that yesterday we had stefan in custody, possibly facing federal charges, and now, what, he's an innocent man?
Hope: Who said that?
Rafe: Who said that? I don't know. How about his lawyer, for one? I mean, I can't even believe this right now. You are so blinded.
Hope: Oh, my god. Don't you even start. Don't start with that again, okay? I see exactly the kind of person ted laurent is.
Rafe: I'm not even talking about ted laurent. That's exactly--that's-- you are so damn obsessed with nailing ben weston, you're not even thinking about justice for my sister.
Gabi: What do you mean no? I mean, gabi chic is-- it belongs to me. I started this company from nothing, and I built it into a real brand.
Stefan: Hmm. If you're saying that I'm taking away your baby... not your strongest argument.
Gabi: [Scoffs] Why would you want to work with me? You despise me.
Stefan: You're absolutely right. I do. Telling me that gabby is back, making me believe that we're having a baby together... unforgivably cruel.
Gabi: Like I said when you kidnapped me and tied me to this chair, I do feel ashamed. No amount of punishment that you dish out could be worse than the way I punish myself every single day.
Stefan: Oh, I highly doubt that.
[Clears throat] I told you that I would make you pay. And I'm a man of my word.
Gabi: I get it... wanting to put all your energy into hurting the people that hurt you. But, you know, take it from me. Revenge doesn't work. Making those people suffer, it--it just... it didn't bring back what I lost. It didn't fill that giant hole inside me. It--it made me feel 10,000 times worse. And if you keep going down this road, that's exactly where you're headed, so why don't you just let it go? Give me gabi chic.
Stefan: You took away everything that matters to me. Why in the hell would I give you back something you love?
Gabi: This company means nothing to you.
Stefan: You're right. It doesn'T. But it means a hell of a lot to you, which is why I'm gonna hold on to it and destroy it piece by piece. Now, you get out of my house.
Gabi: Not until you give me what's mine.
Rex: Sarah, why don't you grab a table and we'll grab the beers?
Rex: Hey. Thanks for convincing sarah to come out with us. I really do appreciate it.
Rex: Now get lost.
Eric: What, you want me to leave?
Rex: Well, three's a crowd.
Eric: Yeah, well, I told sarah it would mean a lot if she came along. Now you want me to leave? We haven't even sat down yet. Doesn't make a lot of sense.
Rex: I don't know how you think I'm gonna get alone with her, then.
Eric: Yeah, well, why don't we sit down and talk? Just keep it cool. It'll work, I promise.
Rex: I don't think you understand. Give me that. I can't just be alone with her, okay? She's gonna want to stab me in the heart. I need to think of, like, a-a diversion or a distraction of some sort. Good with that?
Rex: Hey, you want to play darts? How about a game of "killer"?
Sheila: I'm not a moron. And of course I asked him for id. Uh-uh, this is very sensitive information.
Xander: I'm a spy, remember? We're all about discretion.
Sheila: And the mayor is all about being a tight-ass, so I'd better see some id.
Xander: Abe is very lucky to have such a vigilant assistant guarding his office. Let me... oh, I left my badge at home. I'll have to go and fetch it.
Sheila: Well, how far?
Xander: It's clear across town, and...it is rush hour. I hate to ask, but is there any way you can make an exception?
Sheila: Uh, the boss would kill me if he found out.
Xander: It'd be our secret. I do solemnly swear that I am john black. Now... and that these guns are registered to the isa. Go on, feel.
Sheila: Well, damn.
Sheila: Okay. Well, all right.
[Sighs] Okay. I'll do it. But seriously, just this once.
Xander: You're a lifesaver.
Sheila: I mean, I wouldn't say all that, but I do know a creep when I see one, and you look all right. You got an honest face.
Xander: Hmm. I get that a lot.
Sheila: I gave him access to the footage that you already said he can see, so what's the big deal?
Eli: Is this the guy?
Sheila: Yeah, that's him, john black.
Hope: Thanks. Xander cook's been brought in to custody. I need to get back to the station.
Hope: Wait. I cannot-- rafe. I cannot believe that you think I'd be okay with letting a guilty man go free. I told you my endgame: Ben and stefan behind bars.
Rafe: Your endgame. I thought we were a team.
Hope: We are a team.
Rafe: Are we?
Rafe: 'Cause it doesn't seem like it when you're off making deals with a sociopath and then when he turns you down, you turn to slimy ted.
Hope: You know what? Let me just make myself perfectly clear right now, okay? I want stefan dimera to pay for everything that he's done and to everyone-- to steve, to kayla, especially abigail.
Rafe: I noticed you left gabi off of that list.
Hope: [Sighs] You didn't let me finish.
Gabi: You don't want me to hurt you. Stefan! You are messing with my life, okay? This is not a game. You had your psycho sidekick drag me in here. You tie me to this chair. You put this metal in my face. You know what? You put this--this hot piece of metal in my face, and I thought you were gonna kill me, but you-- you should've done that when you had the chance.
Stefan: Gabi, before you do anything stupid, think about your daughter here.
Gabi: That is exactly who I am thinking about. You threaten me... and then you threaten my livelihood? You put my daughter's future at risk? Well, you know what? You're gonna stop terrorizing that little girl's mother right now!
Stefan: I guess you don't care if you go to prison, do you?
Gabi: Oh, my god. Who-- there is no one that would miss you if I put this metal through your skull!
Chad: I wouldn'T. Except for the stain on the carpet, he's not worth it.
Gabi: What did shin say?
Chad: Stefan's right. Everything's on hold until shin can figure out which one of us is gonna run dimera.
Gabi: You are not gonna get away with this. You said the only way I'd get my company back was over your dead body. That works just fine for me.
Stefan: [Sighs] Okay. You can go too.
Chad: I'm not going anywhere.
Rex: You're going down, bro.
Eric: All right.
Sarah: Again? You haven't gone after me once.
Rex: Boom! [Laughs]
Sarah: Seriously, why does it feel like you're trying to get rid of eric?
Eric: Because rex knows who his real competition is.
Rex: All right, girl, just me and you. What do you say? The loser pays the tab?
Sarah: Okay. It's so on.
Rex: You know, sarah used to suck at darts.
Rex: You remember that biker bar, the south side?
Sarah: Oh, my god, yes. We stumbled in there on accident. I thought it was really cool. You wanted to leave because you were scared.
Rex: All right, well, motorcycle mama here gets her buzz on and all of a sudden, she just, like, wants me to teach her how to throw darts.
Rex: Look at that.
Eric: Nice throw.
Sarah: [Scoffs] I wanted to learn proper form.
Rex: Yeah, I don't know if i was nervous or if I was just trying too hard, but the very first dart that I threw nails this monstrous dude right in the back of the neck. I'm not even kidding.
Eric: That's a good throw.
Rex: Do you remember that?
Rex: And then all of his biker buddies started to come over and figure out, like, where the dart came from, but right before that happened-- I mean, I thought I was dead-- this girl stands up and announces to the entire bar that we are medical residents and she--
Rex: No, no, she does. And she proceeds to expertly remove the dart.
Sarah: Then all of his buddies come over and they start showing us their bumps and bruises and all their injuries from, like, crashes and rumbles and I don't even know what.
Rex: It was like a clinic. It was a total clinic. I have to admit, I was...
Rex: I was into it.
Rex: Remember they asked us to join their gang?
Sarah: They wanted you to join the gang.
Rex: Well, I wouldn'T. You remember why? 'Cause I wouldn't do it without you.
Sarah: You're out.
Hope: I just talked to my detectives price and grant. They know you deleted that footage of you shooting marlena evans.
Xander: I'm sorry. I haven't got the foggiest clue what you're talking about.
Hope: We have an eyewitness: Sheila watkins. She'll testify that you walked into the mayor's office posing as john black, asking for access to that video.
Xander: [Laughs] I mean... is that all you have? The word of an ex-con? I mean, good luck getting those charges to stick. Also, when word gets out that neither the mayor's office nor the salem pd could keep critical evidence from disappearing off a secure city server...
[Inhales sharply] Oh, no. I think that's gonna be really embarrassing for everybody involved.
Abe: Xander shot one of my dearest friends, and now there's a chance that he might escape prosecution because of you!
Sheila: I'm sorry.
Abe: Marlena was in a coma for weeks! She nearly died! And how am I going to explain this to her and john? How could you be so negligent?
Sheila: I got distracted by a handsome face and a killer body... which kind of makes sense because xander is a killer.
Abe: This is funny to you?
[Sighs] Okay, I messed up. And if you want to fire me, I totally understand, but I don't know how that's gonna look at hr.
Abe: And why is that?
Sheila: Timing. I mean, first you ask me on a date. And I asked you if that was even allowed or okay. Then you fire me. I mean, how's that gonna look, boss?
Abe: I cannot believe that you have the nerve to pull something like this!
Sheila: Well, I'm not the one who spent the entire day at human resources training and still don't know the rules.
Abe: I didn't do anything wrong!
Sheila: Well, see, now, that's up to hr. I mean, I'll just tell my side of the story. Lani and eli can back me up because they heard me ask you if it was okay.
Abe: Okay. Okay. Enough.
Sheila: So does that mean I'm not fired?
Sheila: Boss, wait. I'm still gonna need those tickets, though. Thank you. I wonder who I'm gonna ask on a date so last-minute. Maybe "john black."
Rex: I really feel that connection between me and sarah is still there, especially when we told that story. Did you see that?
Eric: Yeah. So far, so good.
Rex: So I have an idea. I think I'm ready for-- for some alone time with her, but I need your help. So maybe when she comes back over, you can fake getting a text and, like, look at it and be like, "oh, my god, it's urgent," and you can-- you can go. I know. I know. You used to be a priest and lying is a sin, but what about love thy brother?
Eric: Okay, fine.
Rex: Awesome. But you gotta be convincing, or it's not gonna work. I mean, you gotta be great. Hi. Thank you.
Hope: Cut him loose.
Lani: We can'T. He shot dr. Evans.
Hope: Without that video, we've got nothing. We're already working on recovering that deleted footage.
Xander: Yeah, search away, gang, but, uh, I'm certain that footage does not exist.
[Grunts] Cheers. Pleasure, as always, commissioner. Hopefully I'll bump into you and the hubby around town. But, uh, for the time being, ciao for now.
Gabi: Hey. Did you hear about stefan?
Gabi: Rafe, how-- okay, how did that happen?
Rafe: Uh... you know what? I don't know. I don't know. But believe me when I tell you I am as pissed off about it as you are, okay?
Gabi: Okay, good.
[Cell phone ringing]
Rafe: Hey, I'm sorry.
Gabi: It's okay.
Rafe: Gabi. Sami? This is a surirpse.
Chad: You drove me out of this house once before. It's not gonna happen again.
Stefan: You know what?
[Glass shatters] I am done playing games with you. I'm taking back what's mine. And if you continue to get in my way, there will be blood, you understand?
