[Soft solemn music]

[Knocking on door]

Rafe: Hey.

Kate: Hey.

Rafe: Hey, kate.

Kate: What's, uh-- what's going on? this why you're closed? I just wanted to get some coffee.

Rafe: Coffee? Oh, yeah. I could probably do that. Yeah, roman, he lent me the place, so I could have A... private dinner with hope.

Kate: Oh. Sounds romantic.

Rafe: Yeah, yeah, it was, till she took off with pepe laurent.

Stefan: My security team went through all the footage. They spotted two people. But unfortunately, there wasn't a clear enough shot of either of their faces.

Hope: Our lab may be able to isolate and enhance the images.

Stefan: I'll have my team send the footage over to the station. It's important we find these people as soon as possible, before anyone gets hurt.

Leo: Well, is my dad here? I really need to speak with him.

Brady: Obviously, he's not here, so, come on, why don't-- why don't you get lost? My mother needs her rest, all right?

Marlena: Brady... that's okay, thanks. Um, why were you looking for john?

Leo: Well, for starters, my brother here tried to screw me over...

Brady: [Laughs] To keep him from trying to screw me over, absolutely.

Leo: And now he's trying to keep me from my father, because he doesn't want me to be a part of this family.

Brady: I don't want you hitting my father up for a handout, okay, especially when he needs to focus on her right now.

Leo: Do you hear yourself? "My father." He's our father, and you don't get to decide when I can and cannot see him. You won't keep me from seeing him, will you?

Marlena: Of course I won't, uh, but I'm--I'm afraid he's busy right now.

John: Hello, diana. Were you looking for this?

Diana: John, what are you doing here?

John: You know, I could ask you the same question, but i already know the answer. You were planning on tampering with evidence, and that would be this evidence, as a matter of fact.

Diana: John, you've misunderstood. May I please explain?

John: No, you don't need to, because I know the truth. I know that you were the one who tried to kill marlena.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Hope: As soon as we identify which members of el fideo's cartel are threatening you...

Ted: We'll let you know.

Stefan: It's strange.

Ted: What is?

Stefan: You. The new da?

Ted: I don't know why it would seem strange to you. Mr. Dimera, I'm an excellent lawyer. Maybe something you should remember next time you break the law. We'll show ourselves out.

Leo: John is busy? With what?

Marlena: Well, he's trying to track down the woman that tried to kill me.

Brady: Is there a lead on kristen?

Marlena: I don't know.

Brady: I'm gonna look online, see if I can find out anything.

Leo: How long do you expect he'll be gone?

Marlena: I'm not sure. Why are you so impatient to find him?

Leo: Uh, well, I--I don't know if john told you, but... since I got kicked out of the kiriakis mansion, I've been staying at the salem inn, which, as you probably know, isn't cheap. I'm running out of money, fast, and I need just a little bit to tide me over, just for a little while.

Brady: Oh, god, there was a shooting at the dimera mansion.

Marlena: Is everybody all right?

Brady: I don't know, I don't know, but I have to check on chloe, okay?

Marlena: Of course, of course. Let us know.

Brady: She is not an atm.

Leo: What are you doing?

Marlena: Well, I'm writing you a check. Do you think that $500 might be enough?

Leo: That would be plenty. Thank you. Why would you do that for me?

Marlena: Because you're john's son. That makes you family.

Diana: I am shocked, john. I am truly shocked that you would accuse me of such a thing. I mean, where in the world would you even come up with this? Especially since that nurse, that--that shelly said that kristen dimera had threatened her...and she saw her with her own eyes.

John: Hm. So she claimed. But then you know what happened? Leo came to me, and even he was wondering if maybe you could be behind this. Now, as much as I didn't want to believe it, your own son was pretty convincing that you could easily have... done something like that.

Diana: My own son? Your own son... as you well know, is an angry, vindictive young man, who would do anything to jump at the chance to hurt me. And you believed him? You believed him, when he accused me of attempted murder?

John: When detective eli grant came to the hospital, I--I--I got him and marlena caught up to speed on my theory, and I asked him to lift some prints off the iv line. You know, he said he wasn't sure he could get a clear image. But I said, you know what, it doesn't really matter, because once you knew that the iv line was in police custody there, and you thought there was an outside chance that you would get caught, you would try to retrieve that evidence.

Diana: How would I even find it?

John: Well, that was the easy part. All you had to do was overhear eli and lani talking. Yeah, they knew you were gonna show up at the cop shop, so they made sure you knew where the evidence was. They set you up... and you fell for it.

Diana: You have no proof.

John: Not here, no. Maybe I should just have detective grant bring in nurse shelly. He's been questioning her for the last hour, and boy, can he work somebody, and I'm sure by now, she's probably cracked.

[Dramatic music]

Diana: Okay. Fine. You're right. I am the one who poisoned marlena.

Rafe: You ought to see this smarmy bastard. He's always pawing all over her, trying to make her laugh with his corny jokes.

Kate: Well, stop him already.

Rafe: Stop him? How am i supposed to stop him? He's the new da, you know that? He and hope, they work together.

Kate: What?

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Kate: Who the hell would appoint him da?

Rafe: Thank you.

Kate: My god, with his shady past, how many skeletons do you think he has in his closet?

Rafe: That's a good idea. I just dig up some dirt on him, then I get him out of that job and out of my life for good.

Hope: Thanks for the heads-up about the other set of footprints.

Ted: Well, your daughter could have been hurt. Besides, it's very important to me to be hands-on with all my cases. Stefan dimera is not the only one that questioned my authority. I need to prove myself.

Hope: Right. Of course. I understand.

Ted: So, I was hoping, maybe we could get a coffee, review the case?

Hope: Ted, stop.

Ted: Stop what?

Hope: This. This. Playing games. Pretending I'm not a married woman.

Chloe: Ugh, maybe I should have had the kids stay with maggie tonight.

Stefan: No, no, chloe, I have taken every precaution. I had ben double the number of guards around the estate. Right now, there is no place more secure than right here. Okay?

Chloe: I suppose you're right.

Stefan: You just need to get your mind on something else. Play a game of chess?

Chloe: Uh, I don't think I could concentrate.

Stefan: Well, think of it this way, if you lose, you have a built-in excuse.

Chloe: [Chuckles] I don't think that my ego could handle that blow either right now.

Stefan: Okay, all right. What else? Uh, what else? I know. I've heard that you have a beautiful soprano, so, what would you say to a private performance?

Chloe: I'd say that I don't feel like singing right now, and I'm not calm enough either.

Stefan: Sure you are. And, hey, even if you're not, don't you think that thinking about anything else than what just happened will help calm you down? All right, don't make me beg, 'cause I'll do it. I will get down on--okay. This is me begging, please, please, come on, please. Sing me a song, come on. Please?

Chloe: Okay, no, no, okay. Oh, gosh, please stand up.

Stefan: So, you'll do it?

Chloe: Yeah, I will sing you one song, if you get up off your knees, yes.

Stefan: Yeah? All right.

Chloe: Oh, okay. [Chuckles] Ah...okay. [Clears throat]


[Singing in foreign language]

Eli: Ms. Colville, we'll need to do this by the book, so if you'd be so kind to join me in the interrogation room.

John: Eli, eli, can I, uh-- can I bring her in to you? I want a couple of minutes alone.

Eli: You sure?

John: Yeah, I'm sure.

Eli: Yeah, I'll be right outside the door.

John: Thanks, man.

Diana: John, I am so sorry.

John: I don't want your apologies, I want some answers. What the hell is the matter with you anyway? What kind of a psychopath are you? How long were you plotting to kill marlena? Ever since you got back to salem?

Diana: John, listen to me, you have to know this was not premeditated. None of this. None of this. It just got out of hand. Yes, I thought that if you knew that leo was your son, it would bring us closer together. But it is so obvious that you were and will always be devoted to marlena. I even went to victor. Yes, I asked him to tell marlena that you are leo's father.

John: What the hell? You were working with victor?

Diana: Yes, we made a deal. I said I would help sonny if he would do me just this one little favor. But as he predicted, it would never be enough to split up your marriage. He held up his end of the bargain, and so much for our partnership, but it made me desperate and more determined to have you.

John: This is really messed up, you know that? You think I'd really turn to you if marlena died?

Diana: You did before. Why not?

John: That was...

Diana: We loved each other, john.

John: Years ago, diana. That was years ago!

Diana: Yes, I know, and i thought I had moved on! But when you showed up at my hotel room, all of those feelings came rushing back. And I realized I still loved you, and I was willing to do anything it took to get you back.

Ted: Hope, I--I'm not pretending anything. I thought we understood each other by now. Anyone who's lucky to know you wants to be around you. You're--you're a compassionate, bright--

Hope: And married.

[Laughs] I am married. I'm a married woman.

Ted: Well, that should prevent us to have a--a good working relationship, maybe even a friendship?

Hope: [Sighs] It shouldn'T. [Chuckles] But what does prevent me, um, from feeling comfortable with that is that... you seem to want more.

Ted: Why? Because--because I kissed you that one time?

Hope: Ted...

Ted: Look, I did cross a line, and I'm very sorry. It was very unfair from me, for sure. But I acknowledged that. Am I not being 100% professional with you since you helped me get that interim da job, huh?

Hope: More like 74% maybe.

Ted: Specific.

Hope: [Laughs]

Ted: Well, what can I say? When I'm in the presence of an extraordinary woman like you, I have a tendency to turn on the charm, to--to flirt. That's the frenchman in me.

Hope: Ah, that's--that's your excuse, huh?

Ted: Well, I think it's a pretty valid one, yes. What do you think?

Hope: I guess--yeah, I guess that--I mean, it'll have to do. But would you please tell the frenchman in you that this woman would like you--he... to stop flirting, and would prefer that he not flirt in her presence. Comprenez-vous?

Ted: [Speaking french]

Hope: [Stammers]

Ted: [Sighs]

Chloe: [Singing in foreign language]

Stefan: [Applauds]

Chloe: [Chuckles] Please don't judge me based on that. I'm a little rusty.

Stefan: No, no, no, no, no, that was... [Chuckles] That was beautiful. I--I had heard you're talented, but, my god, that far exceeded my expectations.

[Phone ringing] Security. I should get it. Ben, what's going on? Brady black?

Hope: Brady's here?

Stefan: Well, tell him to go away. Yeah, he's refusing to leave, until he gets to talk to you. I'll tell ben to toss him on his ass.

Hope: Uh, no, please don't do that.

Stefan: I thought you were mad at him.

Hope: I am, but he's still my friend, so, please, just let him in.

Leo: Thank you for this. It's very generous of you. Um...I know we started off on the wrong foot.

Marlena: Mm. Maybe blackmailing my grandson, I don't know, didn't endear you to me?

Leo: I'd really like to start fresh. It's really important to me to have a good relationship with my dad and you.

[Phone ringing]

Marlena: [Gasps] I'm sorry. Excuse me.

Leo: Sure, mm-hmm.

Marlena: Eli? Is there news? Oh, diana confessed?

Leo: Confessed to what?

John: I don't understand. I don't even recognize you. You were never so ruthless, so heartless. What the hell is the matter with you?

Diana: No, you don't understand what my life has been like since I ran away from salem all those years ago. I shot you, john, and I have lived with that guilt for all of these years, and carried that, until it finally broke me. And then I met richard cooper, and we all know how that ended up.

John: Yeah, so what the hell did you stay with him for?

Diana: Because I convinced myself I loved him. I know I should have done more to protect matthew and myself from the cruelty and the-- the beatings. God, I wish I had! But I was drowning, and i didn't know how to save either one of us.

John: Okay, but then you said richard died, so...

Diana: Yes, yes, he did, and I thought everything would get better, and I thought i would finally be free of him. But instead, I spiraled down into a deeper, darker despair. Oh, god. And then one day, I saw your man spying on me, and he let me know that my matthew was now called leo, and he was living in salem. And for the first time, it gave me hope.

John: Gave you hope? What? About me?

Diana: Yes, because I thought that fate would bring us together again, and I could recapture the past, my youth, and all the happiness I've lost.

[Sobbing] I realize how desperate I've become, how sick I've become. And my need and my want for you is overwhelming me, and I know I went too far, john, and I am sorry, I am so, so sorry.

[Diana sobs]

[Soft music]

[Door opens, closes]

Hope: Good, you're still here.

Rafe: Yeah, but not for long...

Brady: Son of a bitch, you're--you were supposed to keep her safe.

Hope: Brady, stop. The shooting wasn't stefan's fault. He's done everything humanly possible to protect me. Really there's nothing more you could've done. El fideo's men are relentless.

Stefan: We've heightened security. Every inch of this place is being watched, so watch yourself on the way out. Wouldn't want you to get picked off by one of my snipers.

Brady: I want to talk to chloe alone.

Stefan: Yeah, that's not gonna happen.

Chloe: Stefan, please.

Stefan: Okay.

Brady: All right, this is ridiculous. I got to get you out of here. It's not safe here.

Chloe: What's the alternative?

Brady: The alternative is, you come and live with me. Please, chloe.

Chloe: Brady, thank you, but I'm not gonna keep moving my kids around, and...

Brady: Oh...

Chloe: Despite what happened today, I do feel safe here.

Brady: Is that the only reason you don't want to leave? Or is it because you're starting to have feelings for stefan?

Chloe: [Scoffs] What are you talking about?

Brady: I heard that you and stefan kissed, chloe. Is that true?

Kate: Hopefully these will brighten the room up just a little bit.

Marlena: Oh, honey.

Kate: How are you doing, huh? I heard you gave everyone quite a scare.

Marlena: Yeah. Technically, I guess I-- I was dead for a moment.

Kate: Oh, no. What? Well, I just hope they find kristen sooner or later, so you can have a little bit of peace of mind.

Marlena: It wasn't kristen that tried to kill me. It was diana colville.

Kate: But who's that?

Marlena: Well, that's-- she's--ugh, she is... john's sort of ex.

Kate: What?

Marlena: Yeah, I know. But he's gotten her to confess. Oh, the other part? She's also leo's mother.

Kate: What? What a family is that! So, leo is a lying blackmailer, the mother is a homicidal maniac. What do you think the father's like?

Marlena: [Exhales]

Eli: And then you snuck back into marlena's room?

Diana: And injected the iv with penicillin, yes.

Eli: I think I got everything I need.

John: And what about nurse shelly?

Eli: Once I told her that diana came clean, she did the same. I'm gonna go type this up.

Leo: I cannot believe you tried to kill marlena. I told you she was crazy.

Diana: So much for family loyalty.

Leo: You're kidding, right? After the way you've treated me for years, you expect loyalty?

Diana: I don't expect you to understand.

Leo: Oh, I understand. You have finally and completely lost it. Thank god you're gonna be behind bars, so you can't hurt anyone.

Diana: You are not a saint! You cannot judge me!

John: Hey, hey, hey, hey! Calm down, calm down.

Leo: Oh, I'm calm. I am calm, and, for the record, thinking totally clearly. Mother, this is the last time you are ever going to see me. I want nothing to do with you, not after the way you went after my dad's wife. They are my family now, my only family.

Diana: You ungrateful little loser.

Leo: See that? This. This is what I have had to put up with for years. I am so happy to be rid of you! Thank god the truth is out. You are an honest and good man, and I am proud to call you my father.

Diana: He's not your father, you idiot. I made the whole thing up.

[Dramatic music]

(Katy) I was thrilled to be able to go with my friends to our annual

[Soft piano music]

Hope: I'm sorry I left before.

Rafe: Well, that's okay. That's okay. You know what, I get it. I get it. Duty calls, and if anyone understands that, it's me. Just wish it wasn't ted who had interrupted us. I mean, the guy, he clearly likes to ignore boundaries, and it's just--you know, one day, he's gonna cross the line with you.

Hope: And if he does... I'll handle it, okay?

Rafe: Okay, yeah, I know. I know you well. It's just--I'm sorry. I didn't mean to second-guess you.

Hope: Then don't, please? Rafe, trust me. I need you to trust me, okay?

Rafe: Okay, I do. I do.

Chloe: I don't know who's been spreading rumors about stefan and me, but--

Brady: But, but, but what? Come on, chloe--come on, just-- just--just be straight with me. Tell me. Tell me the truth.

Chloe: [Chuckles] Okay, not like it's any of your business, but, yes, stefan and I shared a kiss or two.

Brady: [Groans] I knew that guy had an ulterior motive. I knew it.

Chloe: That is not why he moved me in here.

Brady: No, it is exactly why he moved you in here.

Chloe: I know he has a bad reputation, but he's been nothing but wonderful to me and my kids.

Brady: Oh, come on...

Chloe: He saved my life.

Brady: Chloe, you're being naive, okay?

Chloe: And you're being judgmental. He's not as terrible as you think he is.

Brady: No, actually-- actually, he is, and I can-- I cannot believe you are falling for this guy. You're out of your mind.

Chloe: I never said I was falling for him, but even if I was, what does it matter to you?

Brady: [Stammers] It matters to me, chloe, okay, because I--

Chloe: Why? Because what?

Brady: Because I care about you...

John: What are you talking about, colville? We had a comprehensive dna test done to prove leo was my son.

Diana: I'm aware of that. I switched the tests.

Leo: What? No, she's--she's lying. She's just trying to hurt me.

Diana: I am so sorry, dear leo, but it's the truth. When I left marlena the cookies, I went back to her office a little while later to see if the penicillin had done the trick, and that's when I found the dna test on the desk. And I saw an opportunity to take a situation and turn it to our favor, so I made the necessary changes, and I put it back where I found it.

Leo: No, no, that-- that can't be right. You're my father. I know it.

Diana: Get another test. You'll find out I'm not lying. You asked me if leo was your son, and I thought, "why not?" Because I knew that you would honor your obligations as a father, and I thought we might all be together.

Leo: So--so, you're saying that richard cooper really was my father?

Diana: Yeah.

John: No, no, no, no!

Leo: I'm gonna kill you!

John: No! No, no! No, no! No, stop! Stop! I landed.

[Dramatic music]

Stefan: [Clears throat] Chloe? I think I heard holly calling for you. You want me to go check on her?

Chloe: Uh, no, I--I'll go.

Brady: Chloe, chloe, come--

Chloe: Brady, I think that it's late, and that we should continue this conversation some other time.

Stefan: I think that's your cue to leave.

Brady: Oh, um, by the way, next time you want to commit corporate espionage, you should probably use a more reliable source than leo stark, okay?

Stefan: Hm. Next time you want to play hero to a damsel in distress, make sure she actually wants it.

Kate: So, john is the father? I don't know, how many secret sons can one man have?

Marlena: Well, as far as i know, hopefully just the two.

Kate: Oh, my gosh. So--so, what happens next? I mean, do you play nice with leo and be the not-so-wicked stepmother?

Marlena: Well, I'll try to-- I'll try to stay positive. And you know john. Maybe he'll be a--a good influence on him.

Kate: Oh, yeah. Yeah, that would be great. Then, you and john and--and diana and leo can be one big happy family. Great.

John: Stop! Leo! It's not worth it! Stop! Stop!

Leo: You are the most evil person in the history of the world! No wonder every moment of my life has been a struggle just to stay sane!

John: I agree, I agree, I--I agree. Let's go outside and get some air.

Leo: What for? What for? You heard what she said. You're not my father. I'm not your problem.

John: Okay, I heard what she said, now I want you to hear what I'm saying. Look at me. I know you're hurting, and I am here for you, if you need me.

Leo: I just need to be alone.

John: Okay. Okay.

Leo: I meant what I said. I never want to see you again.

Diana: He'll come back. He always does.

John: He would be a fool to come back to you. Anybody would.

Diana: John, don't you turn your back on me, not the way leo just did, because I don't have anybody. I am alone.

John: That's what you deserve.

Diana: John, john, please, please, please don't leave me.

John: I'm gonna be heading back to the hospital.

Eli: I called the da. Ted will be here soon.

John: Good job. Thanks for all the hard work.

Eli: Happy to do it.

John: [Exhales]

Eli: You okay?

John: Eh, long day. Oh, by the way, colville, she tampered with confidential hospital records, so why don't you just add that on to her list of crimes.

[Door opens]

Diana: John?

Ted: Diana.

Diana: Ted laurent.

[Both speaking french]

Diana: It's been a long time.

Hope: Thank you...

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Hope: For everything you did tonight. It really was a nice first anniversary. It really was.

Rafe: Yeah.

Hope: Yeah.

Rafe: It's getting better.

Hope: Mm-hmm, it is.

Rafe: [Chuckles] I know--I know we still have some issues to work out.

Hope: We do, and we will...

Rafe: Yeah.

Hope: Work them out.

Rafe: Yeah.

Hope: It was nice putting them aside, though.

Rafe: Right?

Hope: I love you, rafael. I love you, my sweet husband.

Rafe: I love you.

Ted: Diana, a lot has changed since I last saw you.

Diana: Hm. How is your wife?

Ted: She passed away.

Diana: I'm so sorry. When did that happen?

Ted: About two years ago.

Diana: Really? Huh, that's strange.

Ted: Why strange?

Diana: Because I just saw her six months ago. I was in avignon at that charming little hotel, la mirande, in the center of the city, and she was there, coincidentally.

Ted: But that's-- that's impossible. We laid my wife to rest two years ago. You must have mistaken her with someone else.

Diana: Hm... yeah, I must have.

Marlena: Mm. It's really over?

John: Diana colville will be going to prison for quite some time.

Marlena: Wow. Well, I'm--I'm--I'm glad she's being punished for what she did. It's what she deserves. I know you cared about her once. Must be a little hard for you to come to terms with what she did.

John: It was difficult to process, yeah. Especially because...

Marlena: Because what?

John: Diana had one more trick up her sleeve. As it turns out, leo is not my son after all.

Brady: Excuse me. Hi, leo.

Leo: Why are you so glum? Didn't you talk to your dad?

Brady: No, I haven't talked to my dad. What's going on?

Leo: My mother lied. John isn't my father. You're not my brother. So, congrats, you got what you wanted, you and everyone else in this town who hates me, so basically everyone else in town. You can throw me to the wolves now, free of guilt.

Chloe: Hey, holly was sound asleep.

Stefan: Really?

Chloe: Mm-hmm.

Stefan: Oh, my mistake. Well, as long as the rest of the house is, uh, dreaming away, how about you sing me another song?

Chloe: Oh, I'm not in the mood anymore.

Stefan: Oh, okay. We could just talk. Have a drink? Watch a movie? Play some chess?

Chloe: Yeah, it's-- it's kind of late. I think I should probably just get to bed.

Stefan: Of course. Have a good night.

Chloe: You too.

Stefan: Mm-hmm.

[Sighs] Damn you, brady black.
