Diana: Oh, I'm so sorry, I--
Marlena: No, it's all right, it's all right.
Marlena: Yes, do I know you?
Leo: Oh, that adrienne is one scary mother... in law.
[Door opening] Well, well, well. Who do we have here?
Brady: Brady black.
Leo: It is nice to meet you, brady black. I've heard a lot about you. I'm leo--
Brady: I know who you are.
Leo: And what's all this, then?
Brady: I'm moving back in.
Leo: Really? You know what they say. The more the merrier.
Chloe: Mom, thanks again for taking the kids. I would've taken the night off, but doug and julie are having another date night, so I'm stuck covering by myself, and I have a feeling it's going to get crazy in here tonight.
Hope: Hi, sweetheart. It is me again, mom. Uh, would you please give me a call or text me as soon as you get this? I just want to make sure that you got home safe and sound. I know, sorry if I'm nagging you, but you know me. Just getting a little worried, okay? Give me a call. I love you. Bye.
[Phone beeps] Voicemail again. Why isn't she picking up her phone? It's so strange.
Ted: Uh, maybe her phone is dead, or she doesn't have it with her.
Hope: No, no, no, not possible. She lives on that thing. It's never more than three feet away from her.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Chloe: Yeah, sorry, mom, I'm still here. I've just got a lot of things to do, and I have to go. Thanks again, and give the kids a hug for me. I love you. Bye.
[Phone beeps] Hi.
Chloe: What are you doing here?
Stefan: Why, I'm enjoying my rather refreshing mojito here. I came in for a drink just as detectives grant and price were kissing their way out. Not sure they even noticed me.
Chloe: Oh, eli and lani. That's right, julie left me a message about giving them the place to themselves for a few hours.
Stefan: Yeah, I, uh-- I found this on the ground outside as they were waltzing past me. My guess is they took their private party someplace a little more private.
[Chuckles] So it looks like you and I have the place all to ourselves.
Care to join me?
Hope: I was just hoping that either you or tripp had seen her. Okay, well, you know what? Would you call me as soon as you get to the loft, or if you hear from her? Okay. Thanks, claire. Bye, honey.
Ted: Well, she hasn't been home, obviously.
Hope: No, and claire has not heard from her, either. Why wouldn't she go straight there from the airport? I mean, she'd have to drop off her suitcase, right? Ted: Mm-hmm.
Hope: Mm, it just doesn't make any sense why she wouldn't tell anyone she was coming home early from south africa. No, you know what? That's not why. I mean, she would have called, or text.
Ted: Maybe her flight was delayed due to the weather, or--or she's just stuck in traffic.
Hope: Of course. Of course, I'm going to call the airline. Thank you.
[Phone beeps] Hi, ciara, it's me again, mom. Honey, please call me, okay? Or text me as soon as you get this. I just want to know that you're back safe and sound. I just--I'm sorry, I know, I'm starting to nag, and I don't mean to, but I'm getting a little worried. I love you. I love you so much. Bye, honey.
[Phone beeps] Mom!
Stefan: I have a whole pitcher of these, ms. Lane. You sure you won't partake?
Chloe: I'm working.
Stefan: Well, not for a few hours, you're not. And technically, this place is still closed. So why don't you slap this back on the front door, come kick your feet up for a bit?
Chloe: No, thank you.
Stefan: Oh, come on. Don't make me drink alone. I do way too much of that at home.
[Grunts] And now, thanks to the dimera board, I have to look at my little brother's constipated face while I do it. But this face here, I could get used to.
Chloe: Listen, I have a million things to do, and I don't really have time to stand around here talking to you, so...
Stefan: You're not going to kick me out again, are you?
Chloe: [Exhales] How about you promise to behave yourself, and I will try to ignore you? How does that work?
Stefan: I can be quite difficult to ignore.
[Slurps drink] Ah, this is so relaxing! Do you ever relax, ms. Lane, or are you always this uptight?
Chloe: I am not uptight. I am perfectly relaxed, in fact. I just don't feel like standing around drinking and schmoozing with you.
Stefan: What's the matter? Afraid you might get a little tipsy and divulge your deepest, darkest secrets? Only to be tortured by humiliation and regret? Or, are you afraid that you might actually enjoy yourself, and have to report to people that I'm good company? Witty and charming. And endure being ostracized for having such an unpopular opinion of me.
Chloe: Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking. I'm afraid of both those things, especially the latter.
Stefan: Well, it's very attractive, you know? To overcome your fears.
[Laughs] Come on, come on, be brave.
Chloe: Okay, fine. I will have one drink with you if that's what it will take to get you off my back.
Stefan: Here you go.
Diana: No, actually, we have never met. But I feel like I know you.
Marlena: Why's that?
Diana: I used to listen to your radio show. I'm a huge fan. I think I've heard every episode. Oh, my. Dr. Marlena evans.
Marlena: Oh, that radio show was many, many years ago.
Diana: Oh, it feels like yesterday to me. I was living in chicago at the time, and I believe your face was on the side of every bus in the city.
Diana: Oh, you got me through some rough times. Just the sound of your voice was a comfort.
Marlena: You're very kind to say that. I'm glad it was helpful. Excuse me.
Diana: Dr. Evans.
Diana: I don't mean to keep you, but as a small token of my gratitude, may I buy you a drink?
Leo: I do admire a ceo who's not so uppity he can't handle his own luggage.
Leo: I bet you handle lots of things just as brawn-ily.
Leo: And I'm thrilled to see a new hunk taking over after xander's untimely departure. But you know what they say: God closes a door, he opens a window.
Leo: What, why are you looking at me like that? Did I put my foot in my mouth as usual?
Brady: Oh, god. Let me go unpack.
Leo: Whoa, hold on, hold on. We're just getting to know each other.
Brady: Why would I want to get to know the little creep that tried to take my family's company away from me?
Leo: Well, I didn't succeed, now, did I? Doesn't that absolve me of all guilt?
Brady: No, as a matter of fact, it doesn'T.
Leo: Well, not to mention, also, in my defense, vivian alamain put me up to it. Impossible to say no to that woman.
Brady: Not impossible. I actually did say no to her. And then, I managed to bury the bitch alive.
Leo: Well, that must have required quite a bit of digging.
Brady: Hands off. Or you might be next.
Chloe: Julie, a supplier, julie, utility bills. Julie--
Stefan: This is your idea of relaxing?
Chloe: One for me--yeah, it is, because once I'm through with this, I'll actually be able to see my desk, and that is relaxing to me. Not to mention the fact that my house is an absolute wreck because my son can't seem to put anything away himself. And with the recent addition of a toddler, yeah, work is my oasis of peace and order.
Stefan: Well, I certainly wouldn't want to do anything to undermine your sense of peace and order. Ruin your... oasis.
Chloe: Well, if it did, I'd only have myself to blame, right?
Stefan: Mm-hmm. That is indeed true. You could have--you could have kicked me out, but instead, you took pity on me. Didn't want me to drink alone.
So if I-if I may, I had heard that there-- there was some debate regarding your toddler's custody. That it was somewhat, uh, sprung on you that she was yours to raise.
Chloe: Yeah, it was. But it's been great. Holly is such a joy, and I really love being a mother to her and parker.
Stefan: But yet, you say you have to come to work to feel peaceful.
Chloe: Well, yeah, but that doesn't mean I don't love the absolute chaos of being around my children, but sometimes you just need a break from it, you know? When you become a parent, you just get pulled from every which way. Maybe you'll experience that someday, or maybe you won'T. Maybe you'll shuffle them off to a nanny, I don't know.
Stefan: [Chuckles] I would never.
[Grunts] When I thought charlotte was mine, I was actually, uh-- I felt bereft when I wasn't around her.
Chloe: You must miss her.
Stefan: Yep, I do very much.
Chloe: Well, she's still your niece. She can still be part of your life.
Stefan: No. Chad and abigail won't let me anywhere near her. They won't even bring her by the house.
[Grunts] I got this for her for christmas. I've been carrying it with me ever since. Pathetic, right?
Chloe: No, why would it be? You thought she was your child.
Stefan: Yeah. To charlotte.
Chloe: I'm sorry.
Stefan: Thank you.
Hope: Ciara's flight landed on time hours ago. Where could she be?
Ted: You sure she was on that plane?
Hope: Yeah, they checked the passenger manifest. She was definitely on board.
Ted: Okay, so what about that app? That find my phone app?
Hope: She didn't want me keeping tabs on her, so she deleted it months ago. Where the hell is she? What's going on?
[Heavy breathing] Oh, my god. I can't get to the door. I have to get to the window. Oh, god.
[Heavy breathing] Whoever it is, whoever is calling, please help me.
Diana: I was just going over to that cute café for a cocktail. I would love some company.
Marlena: Oh, I'm sorry. I couldn't possibly--
Diana: Oh, no, no, no, please. As I said, it would be my way of thanking you for the free therapy back in the day.
Marlena: There's no need for that, really.
Diana: How about if I promise not to tell you my psychological problems or ask for any advice. And I promise I won't keep you. I know how busy you are. I respect that. One drink.
Marlena: All righty. One drink.
Diana: Wonderful, shall we?
Leo: What is your problem, brady black?
Brady: There's no problem, leo. I just happen to play for the other team, all right?
Leo: Honey, who are you trying to fool? That is a serious case of gay face.
Brady: Oh, honey, if you keep this crap up, you're going to have a serious case of broken arms.
Leo: Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Brady: Why don't you take it easy?
Leo: What is with all the gay panic around here? First xander, now you. I have to say, it's borderline homophobic.
Bready: Oh, for god sakes, man, you are ridiculous.
Leo: What, are you concerned, worried that you could actually be attracted to a man?
Brady: Uh, no, not in this lifetime, all right?
Leo: Never say never.
As someone in witness protection,
Diana: So, your radio show. I was a huge fan, as I said, and I was so sad when it went off the air. Was that your choice?
Marlena: Oh, well, in fact it was. You know-- after a while, I realized that some of the fans were just too--
Marlena: And I really love one-on-one therapy, so i went back to my private practice. Enough about me. You, you're from chicago. What are you doing here?
Diana: I'm visiting my son. I haven't seen him in a while, and I thought I'd check in on him.
Marlena: Are you very close?
Diana: We get along, when he's not driving me completely insane.
Marlena: Ah, yes, yes. I understand that one.
Diana: You have a son like that?
Marlena: No, but I have a daughter like that, who is-- oh, gosh, just--I love her so. She's funny and bright and articulate, a great mom. And somebody that just has trouble follow her around wherever she goes.
Diana: Matthew's the same way.
Marlena: Hm, matthew. Oh, now I know your son's name. I don't know your name.
Diana: I'm diana. Diana cooper.
Marlena: Diana, nice to meet-- did you say cooper?
Marlena: Oh, well, then, matthew cooper is your son.
Leo: You've had your fun. Now get the hell out of here.
Leo: Go out the side door, and do not come back.
Diana: Get your hands off me, you little brat! Okay, let's get something straight. I'm the parent, you're the child, or should I say parasitic leech. You do not put your hands on me. You do not talk to me in a condescending, dismissive tone, and you certainly do not tell me what to do. Now, apologize this instant.
Diana: Wait a minute, what did you say?
Leo: I'm sorry, mother.
Diana: Better. Don't forget, matthew, I know things about you that your new husband seems very anxious to learn. We wouldn't want your posh setup to blow sky-high, would we? Yes, but now, he goes by the name of--
Marlena: Leo starke.
John: Should i come back later?
Brady: No, what the hell are you doing, huh? What is wrong with you, man?
Leo: You can't blame a guy for trying. Who's this silver fox?
John: I am brady's father. And you must be the infamous leo starke.
Leo: How do you know that?
John: Well, I saw your photo, leo. So tell me, how's this visit with your mother going? I'm assuming it was a heartwarming reunion?
Leo: How do you know that my-- john--john black, the pi? Are you the one who tracked my mother down?
John: One and the same.
Leo: How dare you? You had no right to interfere in my life like that. I take back what I said about you being a silver fox. You're a jerk!
Chloe: Don't you have anything better to do than just lounge around here drinking mojitos?
Stefan: Can't think of anything at the moment.
Chloe: Well, how about, I don't know, working? Running dimera enterprises?
Stefan: Mm, it's running itself at this point. And handily trouncing the competition, I might add. Mainly titan. And given that brady is a failed former ceo, I'm quite confident that dimera will continue to prosper.
Chloe: As will titan, I'm sure.
Stefan: How do you know?
Chloe: Well, I know because I know brady. Not only is he a shrewd businessman, but when he wants something, he goes after it with a vengeance. He's no pushover. He's relentless when he needs something.
Stefan: Well, what are you? His publicist?
Chloe: I'm his friend.
Chloe: And ex-wife, actually, so I know him very well.
Stefan: Of course. Of course you are. So--so what went wrong?
Chloe: With what?
Stefan: What went wrong with--with your marriage to brady. Why'd you get divorced?
Chloe: Why does anybody get divorced?
Stefan: I don't know.
Chloe: We grew apart.
Chloe: No, not--not at all. Well, I mean, at first, sure, but that's always the case when you first split up with someone. Brady's a good man, and I'm grateful that we've reconnected, and that he's back in my life. In fact, I think we're closer now than we've ever been.
Stefan: And how close is that?
Hope: Voicemail again. The more time that goes by--
Ted: Hope, please. Try not to jump to the worst-case scenario. There is a simple explanation why your daughter has been unreachable, that's all.
Hope: I'm trying to think of one, ted.
Ted: Did theo give you any idea why she wanted to come home early?
Hope: All he said was that she was missing home. I hope missing home doesn't mean ben weston.
Diana: So you know leo?
Marlena: Yes, I do.
Diana: I can tell from your tone that your interaction wasn't pleasant.
Marlena: Well, to put it mildly... he's made my grandson's life a living hell.
Diana: How so?
Marlena: Because he blackmailed will's boyfriend into marrying him.
Diana: Will horton is your grandson?
Marlena: He's a fine young man, and your son has made his life utterly miserable.
Diana: I'm sorry. I agree with you. He is a fine young man.
Marlena: You've met him?
Diana: He came to see me at the salem inn. Dr. Evans, I am so sorry that matthew has caused so much trouble for your loved ones.
Marlena: Then maybe you could do something to end this terrible situation. I'm sure that you don't want your son stuck in a loveless marriage.
Diana: Of course not. And I agree, it is a terrible situation for everyone concerned, and I have tried to talk to matthew. He does not listen to me.
Marlena: Try it again. I mean, you're his mother. You must have some influence over him.
I've been trying to think why it's okay for leo to cause people so much pain. I mean, what could have happened in his life to make him so vindictive? I don't know. Maybe, somehow, he was traumatized. Would you know anything about that? Look. You said that you were helped by my radio show. Maybe you can help me in return. Maybe you could tell me whatever I need to know about leo. Not just for leo's sake. For everybody's sake.
Diana: Let me ask you something, dr. Evans, if someone were to ask you for personal and potentially damaging information about your daughter... would you be willing to throw her under the bus for a complete stranger? I didn't think so. I've taken up enough of your time.
Leo: Okay, enough with all this chitchat, I'm starving. I'm going to have cook make me a snack to bring to bed. I think a salami sandwich will hit the spot. If you're feeling peckish, I'm happy to share.
John: Quite a welcome back, huh?
Brady: God, that guy, he's-- he's a creep. I feel bad for sonny having to deal with him. I mean, the guy's a nightmare.
John: Yeah, right. But you know what, he might not be the only one who has a problem with your coming back here. Come on, son, you and victor, your relationship was so complicated.
John: And after a year that's been fraught, to say the least, with stefan and chad running titan's main competition. You sure this is all worth it here?
Brady: Ah, dad, come on. Chad and stefan, I've gone toe-to-toe with them before. I can handle that.
John: Yeah, without distractions, no doubt you can. But now that eve's back in the picture here, I mean, come on. That can't be easy for you.
Brady: Dad, eve and I, we're--we're history, we're history. I mean, I haven't even thought about her, honestly.
John: Yeah, yeah, just like that, huh?
Brady: No, it hasn't been just like that, but let's just say I've had some help getting over it.
John: Really? What kind of help? Or is that none of my business?
Brady: No, no, no. I don't mind you asking. I don't mind you asking, um-- chloe and I have actually reconnected, and it's been a--it's been good. It's been a positive thing for me.
John: You and chloe?
Brady: Yeah. She's--look, she's been a really good friend to me.
John: Right, right, right. And that's, uh... that's all you are, is friends? Well, no, that's really none of my business.
Brady: No, dad, you're my father. I know you care, so I don't mind telling you. I mean, I'm actually used to people asking me, at this point.
John: What do you mean you're used to people asking?
Brady: Everyone's asking. I mean, eve, maggie, they're all questioning me about it.
John: All right, well, did you give them an answer? Because you sure as hell didn't give me one.
Brady: [Groans] Here's my answer: Yes, chloe and I are just friends.
Chloe: Brady and i are just friends, like I said.
Stefan: Don't the best relationships always start out that way?
Chloe: If you're asking me if we're going to get back together again romantically, then I think that's a very personal question.
Stefan: In other words, yes.
Chloe: No, that's not what I meant. I meant no, I'm not I'm not going to answer your question because a: It's none of your business, and b: I... I don't know. I mean, lucas and i got back together. I think thinking that we were going to recapture something we had years ago, and look how that ended up. Anyway, enough about me and my love life, or lack thereof. Let's--let's-- let's bring it to you.
Stefan: Bring it-- what about me?
Chloe: I mean, there's got to be life after abigail, right?
Ted: Wait, hope, wait. I don't understand. Why would ciara have been missing ben weston? She went halfway around the world to get away from him.
Hope: Yes, yes, she did. And I could not have been more relieved. Hopefully, the final nail in ben weston's coffin is when ciara found out that he'd kidnapped gabi hernandez. Because before then, she refused to see that she was in a relationship with a dangerous psychopath. Ted... when ben found ciara on the side of the road and held her in that cabin, she actually believed that he'd rescued her. A form of stockholm syndrome.
Ted: Wow, and then, that fire.
Hope: Yes, the fire. We thought we had irrefutable evidence that ben had set it, and she refused to believe it.
Ted: As it turned out, that irrefutable proof was planted.
Hope: Yeah, I know, ted. And I still believe that he set it. Wait a minute. What if ciara didn't tell me she was coming back early because she was going back to him? We've got to find weston. We need to find him now. I know who can help us.
No more excuses
Brady: Oh, god, dad, I sure as hell hope I don't find a horse's head or a naked leo on my bed tonight. I don't know which one would be worse.
John: Yeah, right. So, tell me, have you met leo's mother yet?
Brady: No, why? Hold on, she's not living here, too, is she?
John: No, no, no, no. She's over at the salem inn. It took a lot of digging, but I finally found her, and now, we are hoping that she is the one who can help us bring leo down.
Brady: Really? How would she do that?
John: Well, apparently, their relationship has been rather difficult. I mean, you could see by his reaction when he found out I was the one who had gotten her here.
Brady: Oh, yeah, yeah. "You jerk."
Brady: Well, spill the beans. What's this woman like, anyway?
John: I don't know, I haven't spoken with her yet. But I'll tell you what. While you're getting settled in, I think I'll shoot on over to the salem inn and see what I can find out.
Brady: Good luck.
John: No, you're going to need the good luck.
Brady: No kidding.
John: I'll keep you posted.
Brady: All right.
Hope: Thank you so much for coming.
Marlena: Well, it sounded important.
Hope: Yes, it is. It's very important. I'm sorry, I'm not sure if you've met ted laurent.
Marlena: Yes, we have, hello.
Hope: Marlena, please, have a seat.
Marlena: Sure, okay, um...
Hope: Right over here.
Marlena: What is all--
Hope: Just move it.
Marlena: What--no, it's fine. What is all this about? What's happening?
Hope: Ben, it's about ben.
Marlena: Ben weston? Has something happened?
Hope: Ciara went to south africa to see theo. And also, to clear her head. Get away from ben, and... she's missing again.
Marlena: In south africa?
Hope: No, here. Since she got back. Apparently, she decided to come home earlier than planned, and no one's heard from her since--since she has landed. So I was wondering if, perhaps, ben might know where she is. I know, I know. He's your patient, I know that. But if you could please just tell me when the last time you saw ben was? And if you did, did he say anything about ciara? Anything at all?
Chloe: Oh, getting these sorted is making me feel so much better already.
Stefan: Well, here is to feeling even better. Pour you another?
Chloe: Okay, calm down. I'm done with my mail, but first, let's get back to you. What about you? What, are you dating online, or otherwise?
Stefan: On--excuse me, online? No, no, I have not. I've been bored and celibate, which is not cool, because I actually enjoy the company of women.
Chloe: Oh, okay, well, if you feel that way, why don't you go find someone? You know, it'll help you get your mind off of abigail, or--that's not what you called her when you were with her, right?
Stefan: No, chloe. That's not what I called her.
Chloe: Well, if you made yourself available, I'm sure women would come knocking down your door. I mean, you are handsome. You're rich, you're kind of famous, and you're witty and charming.
Stefan: Oh, so I got you to admit it!
Stefan: You admit it.
Chloe: Exactly, well-- a man like you is only single because you want to be. Oh, my god.
Stefan: What, what? What is it?
[ Doorbell rings ]
Stefan: What the hell is that?
Chloe: This is the same knife.
Stefan: Same as what?
Chloe: That I used to kill el fideo. I walked in the room, and i stabbed him in the back with it, and he--he died right in front of us.
Stefan: Well, any idea why someone would send it to you here?
Minion: Do you realize what you've just done? You killed him. You killed el fideo. You signed your death warrant. Anywhere you go, we will find you.
Chloe: I don't know, I just remember one of his guys said that I'd just signed my death warrant, and I'd never have another moment's peace. But when I came home, nothing happened, and I put it out of my mind. But, oh, my god, what am i supposed to do?
Stefan: It's okay, calm down. The first thing we're going to do is call the police.
Leo: Are you sure you don't need a hand?
Brady: Hands off, remember.
Leo: So big daddy's gone, huh?
Brady: Yeah, big daddy's gone. And soon, you'll be too.
Diana: Hello, roman.
Marlena: In fact, I saw him earlier today.
Ted: Then at least we know he's in town.
Hope: Did he say anything about ciara?
Marlena: You know I can't discuss that with you.
Hope: Yes, I do know that. And under ordinary circumstances, I would respect it, and wouldn't come to you for help. But these are not ordinary circumstances. My daughter is missing again. I'm begging. Marlena, please. I am begging you. If you know something, anything, please tell me. Please. Help me find my daughter. Please, help me.
Ciara: [Gasping] Why are you doing this to me? Where am I? And who are you?
