Hope: Hey, uh, Ted, it's Hope. Please call me as soon as you get this, and, definitely don't quit your job. At least until you talk to me.

[phone beeps]

Hope: Hey, sweetheart. Hi.

Ciara: Hi, Mom.

Hope: Hi. Hi, honey. Ben.

Ben: Hi.

Hope: What ar eyou doing here?

Ciara: We came to ask you about what Jordan siad.

Jordan? I'm sorry. Bring me up to speed.

Ciara: Well, apparently, Jordan told rafe that she didn't set the first fire at the cabin...the one that nearly killed me.

[Edgy music]

Ben: I might as well tell you. My sister just told rafe hernandez that she didn't set that fire.

Jj: Why am I not surprised?

Ciara: Yeah. Ben didn't do it. I know, I was there. Somebody else had to have done it.

Haley: Claire smokes?

Jj: Not that I know of.

Kayla: Hey.

Jj: Hey.

> Kayla: Something wrong?

Jj: Uh... I'm not sure.

Claire: Wow. I seriously can't believe that you're about to bail on a romantic evening with your girlfriend to go check on your fake fiancée, tripp.

Tripp: I know, I know, i know, I'm sorry. I know it wasn't part of the plan, but haley is really upset, all right? I told you jack and eve showed up at the loft, and they were expecting me to be there and when I wasn't, they started harassing haley about how our engagement must not be real.

Claire: Oh, gee, I wonder what gave them that idea?

Tripp: I thought you were on board with this--I mean, you you wanna help haley, right?

Claire: Yes, yes, I am, i am, of course. I just... you know, it's fine. It's totally fine, tripp. I'll just go with you, right?

Tripp: Actually, uh, I don't think that's such a good idea.

Claire: What?

Tripp: How many times do i have to tell you, okay? Haley and I are just friends. That's all, okay? There's nothing real about this marriage, all right? It's me doing a favor for a friend. You're the one I wanna be with. And as soon as haley gets her green card, you know, she'll go back to living her life and I'll go back to living mine... with you.

Eve: [Cackling] She did it! Jack, now we just have to call a press conference, let the media know that that little scammer is trying to put one over on the feds just so she can get a--

Jack: No.

Eve: No what?

Jack: No, we're not gonna do that. I have a better idea.

Eve: O...kay. I'm all ears. What is it?

[Uneasy music]

[Knock on door]

Haley: Wh-who's there?

Melinda: Your sister.

Rafe: Jordan, I don't understand. What-- what baby? Do you mean charlotte? 'Cause I-if you mean charlotte, she's fine: She's with chad and abigail and--

Jordan: Not abigail's baby. The other baby.

Rafe: Okay, wh-what other baby?

Jordan: Mine.

Rafe: Your, um... okay, jordan, I think--I think you're confused, honey.

Jordan: No, I'm not confused. I know exactly what I'm saying. I'm talking about my baby. My little boy.

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

Kayla: Let's talk over here. Is this about your dad?

Jj: It's part of it, um... I just ran into ben and ciara and they told me that jordan's claiming she didn't set the first fire.

Kayla: I know. I was the one that told them that.

Jj: Oh, uh...

Kayla: What's up?

Jj: I don't know, um... it's just this weird coincidence. I was with haley earlier and, uh, we had to put something in claire's jewelry box. And when we did, we found a lighter... the exact same kind ben used back when he was holding chad and abigail at the cabin.

Kayla: The kind he used to set it on fire.

Jj: The bed. Yeah. Now, finding out that jordan's saying she didn't set the other fire, I keep going back to seeing that lighter in claire's jewelry box.

Kayla: Are you suggesting that claire might have set that fire?

Claire: What do you mean? Why can't I go with you?

Tripp: Look, I-I'm sorry, but with jack and eve all over us, maybe it's--maybe it's best if you just stay here tonight.

Claire: Oh, my god, you actually want me to stay here alone?

Tripp: I don't want you to, but...[Sighs] If you come back with me, it might look suspicious. And I don't know if jack and eve are watching me. I am sorry, claire. All right? I know this night isn't turning out exactly the way we wanted it to, but I will make it up to you soon. I promise. All right?

Claire: Bye.

Jordan: My baby boy. He's in california.

Rafe: Okay. So all this time that you've been in salem, you just... you just left him out there?

Jordan: I couldn't risk bringing him here. What if ben had found him? What if he had done to my little boy what [Whispers] Clyde did to me?

Rafe: Right.

Jordan: And all I wanted was to keep him safe. And I failed, and I just wanna go home, and I'm stuck in this horrible place...

Rafe: Jordan, jordan--

Jordan: And I just...

[Sobbing] I just wanna go home because I have to be home for my little baby, please, rafe. I need you to help me. Please.

Rafe: Okay.

Jack: Well?

Eve: Well, I... okay, I see the point.

Jack: And...but?

Eve: I--

[Phone rings]

[Beep] Eve donovan.

Claire: Hi, eve, it's claire. I need to see you right now.

Eve: Well, I-I thought that you were with tripp.

Claire: Oh, well, I was, until he left me for haley. And it's all thanks to you and jack.

Haley: What are you doing here?

Melinda: I saw your engagement on social media. I assumed I could find you at your new fiancé's apartment. Do you really think this charade is gonna work?

Haley: Honestly, I don't know, but what other choice do i have, mel? It's not like you're helping me. I believe your exact words were, "you're on your own now."

Melinda: I admit that wasn't my finest moment.

Haley: [Laughs] Please. It's every hour of every day. You hate it that your--your little sister had to show up and ruin your shiny new life. You know, I realized that I was nothing but a burden to you, which is why... you don't care if I'm deported.

Melinda: What? That's not true, haley. Of course I care. It's just--

Haley: What? What is it?

Hope: Okay, let's back this up a second. Are you talking about the fire last summer or the one a few weeks ago?

Ciara: Last summer. Apparently, jordan told rafe that she didn't do it.

Ben: Yeah. That's why we came over here.

Ciara: Yeah. We were wondering if maybe we can talk to rafe or maybe you had spoken to him to see if--

Hope: No, I haven't, I have not spoken to rafe, and I don't know anything about this. But...if jordan is saying that she didn't start the first fire, then...

Ciara: Mom, do not start this again, okay? You cannot take the word of a crazy lady's over ben'S. Ben is innocent. Do you understand?

Rafe: Jordan, jordan, you can't leave bayview, all right? Not till you get help.

Jordan: Who's gonna help my son? My son needs his mother, and i can't even imagine how scared he is--he doesn't even know if I'm coming back.

Rafe: Okay, yeah, so I'll-- I'll get in touch with child protective services.

Jordan: Rafe, no, my child cannot end up in the system.

Rafe: Okay, jordan, well, i don't know what other option i have then.

Jordan: You can do it.

Rafe: What?

Jordan: You could get him.

Rafe: Me?

Jordan: That's it. I can't go to him, so you could go get my son and bring him back to me. - Where's a woman's place? For 200,000 americans,

Jj: I'm not suggesting that claire would do something as awful as set that fire. It's just strange to find out that jordan's saying she didn't do it...right after I see the lighter in claire's jewelry box.

Kayla: Are you sure it's the same kind of lighter that ben used?

Jj: The exact same kind. Lani and I examined it back when we were working chad and abigail's kidnapping.

Kayla: [Huffs] Claire involved in something like this? It doesn't make any sense.

Jj: Yeah, I...I know. It doesn't add up.

Kayla: Well, is there anything unique about this lighter?

Jj: No. No, it's pretty generic.

Kayla: Oh. So anyone could have one.

Jj: Yeah, they could. But why does claire?

Eve: So claire, what happened with tripp?

Claire: Oh, I'll gladly tell you what happened with tripp-- you two did. Ha ha. Yeah, showing up at the loft really freaked haley out, and so she decided to call tripp all upset, and then tripp decided to leave me to go comfort her. Yeah, and now my amazing, romantic evening that I spent so much time planning is all ruined!

Jack: Well, uh, we had some really poor timing going there, but it couldn't be avoided.

Eve: Yeah, we had to lay the groundwork for our big reveal, right?

[Phone rings]

Jack: Oh. Ah, excuse me. Be right back.

[Phone ringing]

Eve: Honey, honey, we are sorry that this ruined your special evening, but we didn't know that tripp was gonna leave you here alone and run after haley.

Claire: Yep. Neither did I.

Eve: It's gonna be okay. You just keep your chin up, because haley is gonna be an afterthought very soon.

Claire: You're damn right, eve... 'cause you're gonna release this footage right now, and haley chen is going bye-bye tonight!

Melinda: I'm sorry I haven't been there for you. Not the way you wanted. But now...I need to talk to you about something really important.

Haley: I-I can't imagine what you have to say.

[Door opens]

Tripp: Oh. Hi.

Haley: Uh, tripp, this is my sister melinda.

Melinda: I'm guessing you're going to be my brother-in-law.

Tripp: Looks that way. And, uh, I want you to know that I'm honored to be marrying haley.

Melinda: You know, if any of this were real, I would be very impressed by that sentiment. But you and I both know that it's not.

[Small laugh] You may think that you're doing something noble, but I'm warning you, ice is gonna be all over you two. And instead of haley going back to china, you two could end up in prison.

Tripp: It's a risk I'm willing to take.

Melinda: For a woman you just met?

Tripp: For someone as great as haley? Yeah, definitely. And I know what I wouldn't do-- cut and run like you did.

Melinda: Well... I see my sister has already spoken for me. No need for me to stay here.

Tripp: I'm sorry.

Haley: What for?

Tripp: I-I shouldn't have lashed out at melinda like that. Even if I disagree with every word she says, she's still your sister.

Haley: You kidding me? You stood up for me, tripp, and not many people have done that before. Sadly, my sister never has.

Hope: I'm guessing from your passionate defense of ben that things are better between the two of you?

Ciara: Mm. It's true. Ben and I are back together. Come on, ben, let's go.

Hope: Hold on a second. You're not going back to the dimera mansion, are you? Not after everything that happened.

Ciara: Ben can't drive.

Hope: Ciara--

Ciara: Mom, you don't have to worry about me. No one is after me. I was the wrong place at the wrong time. And now, I'm gonna take him home.

Rafe: And where would I find your baby?

Jordan: You'll go yourself? You won't call the authorities?

Rafe: Uh... I'll, um...I'll go myself.

Jordan: You can't tell anyone.

Rafe: No, I won'T., I'll, uh... I'll go out there and I'll look for your baby, I'll try and find him, and then I'll bring him-- I'll bring him back here to you.

[Jordan sobs] Yeah.

Jordan: [Crying] He's with a friend in california.

Rafe: He is? Yeah. Okay, um, so... do you know where this friend lives? Do you--

Jordan: [Whispers] You're gonna bring my baby back to me. You're gonna go get him and you're gonna bring him back to me, 'cause I need him. I need to hold him in my arms.

Rafe: No, all right. That's okay. It's okay, it's all right.

[Jordan sobbing] Oh--

Jordan: Thank you. Thank you so much.

Rafe: It's okay.

Jordan: 'Cause I need him.

Rafe: All right, yeah.

Jordan: You promise me you're gonna go find him. You're gonna bring...

Rafe: Yeah...

Jordan: You're gonna bring my baby back to me.

Rafe: [Quietly] I promise.

[Jordan sobbing] I promise. Okay.

Kayla: I...I mean, I know that claire doesn't smoke, but she could have a lighter for a lot of reasons, you know. Candles, incense, whatever.

Jj: No, I know, I know, you're right, you're right. Unless, uh...

Kayla: Unless what?

Jj: Well, ben was living at the loft for a while. Maybe the lighter is his, and he decided to put it in the jewelry box to--to hide it...for safekeeping.

Kayla: Well, sure, I guess that's possible, but... what are you gonna do?

Jj: I need to talk to claire, see if this lighter is somehow connected to ben. I need to find out what happened at that cabin.

Haley: So...what are you doing here? Aren't you supposed to have a romantic getaway with claire?

Tripp: I-I was, but when you called, you seemed really upset, so I wanted to come check on you.

Haley: Well, w-where's claire?

Tripp: Claire's staying at the salem inn tonight.

Haley: But--but you're here.

Tripp: Mm-hmm.

Haley: I bet she wasn't too happy about that.

Tripp: She's dealing with it, yeah, but it's--it's fine, really.

Haley: No. No, no, it's not fine. I hate that I ruined your romantic evening.

Tripp: No, no, it's really fine, okay? Claire understands, and plus, the room at the salem inn is actually pretty sweet. She's probably ordering herself room service and running herself a bubble bath as we speak, so... I just hate that jack and eve came and ambushed you again.

Haley: I really shouldn't be surprised, 'cause I don't think those two will stop until they throw me under the bus.

Tripp: Yeah, well now they're gonna have to go through me, okay?

Haley: It was really sweet of you to come back here tonight, looks like the coast is clear, so you're good to head back to the inn.

Tripp: Actually, I don't think that's such a good idea. I wouldn't put it past jack and eve to show up again.

Haley: You know, you keeping me here sounds like it's becoming a full-time job for you, tripp. Are you sure you wanna do this? It's not too late to back out.

Tripp: [Laughs] Thanks, but even if I wanted to back out-- which I don't, by the way--our engagement is all over social media. So if we don't go through with this now, we could be in a lot of trouble, so... so thank you for the offer, but you don't need to let me off the hook, all right? You're stuck with me.

Ciara: Wow. So, uh... this is where you live now, huh?

Ben: Yeah, it was the, uh, the old groundkeeper's place. He clearly hasn't been here in ages. He has a family now, so he commutes.

Ciara: So this is like engagement is all over social media. So if we don't go through with this now, we could be in a lot of trouble, so... so thank you for the offer, but you don't need to let me off the hook, all right? You're stuck with me.

Ciara: Wow. So, uh... this is where you live now, huh?

Ben: Yeah, it was the, uh, the old groundkeeper's place. He clearly hasn't been here in ages. He has a family now, so he commutes.

Ciara: So this is like your own little house, right, separate from the mansion?

Ben: Yep. Got a lot of privacy now.

Ciara: Oh.

Ben: Had the security team check it out--did a clean sweep of the whole grounds, the home. 100% completely safe.

[Keys clatter]

Ciara: You were, uh, you were pretty quiet on the way over here.

[Soft music]

[Ben sighs] Ben... I know you're worried about what your sister said. About how she didn't set the fire.

Ben: I saw the look on your mom's face. Soon as she heard that, she went right back to thinking that i was responsible.

Ciara: Right, well, that's her problem, not yours.

Ben: Yeah, see, I'm not so sure about that. Ciara, if your mom doubts me, I can't help but think that eventually, you might too.

Ciara: Well, then let me put your mind at ease. Because that is never, ever going to happen.

Hope: Unit 15. Still parked outside the dimera mansion? Good. Don't take your eyes off my daughter until she leaves, and when she does, let me know.

[Phone beeps]

[Door opens]

Rafe: Hi.

Hope: Hi. Look who's back.

Rafe: I'm back.

Hope: Yeah. Great.

Rafe: Yeah, listen, I know you're upset with me. I get it. Uh...I'm hoping you can put that aside because there's something important I need to talk to you about.

Hope: If it's about jordan saying she didn't start the first fire, I already know. And I'll need you to reopen the investigation.

Rafe: Okay. All right. Will do. Uh, but it's not that. There is something else that, uh, jordan claims that I need to follow up on.

Hope: What?

Rafe: [Light laugh]

Hope: What other bombshell did jordan drop?

Rafe: Jordan now claims she has a baby.

Hope: [Laughs] What?

Claire: I can't do this anymore, eve--I need this stupid engagement to be blown up right now.

Jack: I'm sorry, claire. We cannot do that.

Eve: [Groans]

Claire: What do you mean, jack, why?

Jack: I mean we have a new plan.

Eve: You know what? Jack, let me tell her, and i will meet you in the square for a beverage later to celebrate, okay?

Jack: That sounds good. Let's do that. Claire, listen to eve.

Claire: All right, eve, what is this new...this new plan?

Eve: Okay. Well, jack thinks that we need to wait to release the video until after haley and tripp have had their "official" meeting with ice and they've lied to them.

Claire: Wait a minute--what? Eve, why?

Eve: Because the consequences will be more damning, not to mention there'll be a bump in the news cycle. Oh, honey, not--just--after they have said that they're gonna be engaged, that's all.

Claire: No, no, no, eve! I-I can't wait that long!

Eve: You don't have to wait that long, sweetheart. The meeting is tomorrow, honey. It'll be over with before you know it.

Claire: Yeah, and what if it isn't? What if it isn't? What if none of this goes as planned? And what if I lose tripp forever?

Tripp: So tell me everything. What happened with jack and eve?

Haley: It was... it was horrible. Um, jj was so furious at his dad, and I hated seeing him go after him like that.

Tripp: Well, his dad kinda deserved it, don't you think?

Haley: Maybe, but...I feel like if it weren't for this situation that he and his dad might have a decent relationship.

Tripp: You really care about jj.

Haley: Yeah. Yeah, of course I do. You know, he and I have gone through so much, and he's actually the first person i confided my secret to. Well, second after dr. Evans. But it's also because of him that this secret... that this thing I've kept hidden for so long got exposed.

Tripp: Well, you gotta know how bad he feels about that.

Haley: Yeah, yeah, no, I do. But...

[Small laugh] All I can think about is how betrayed I feel.

Tripp: So what are you saying, that you don't think you and jj could ever have a future together?

Haley: No. I don'T.

Kayla: How are things going with the haley situation? I know how upset you are with your dad for outing her like that.

Jj: Upset wouldn't even begin to cover it.

Kayla: Yeah, I know. Listen, if it makes you feel any better, I really let him have it.

Jj: I just can't believe that the man who's stirring up all this trouble and making haley's life a living hell is my dad. Assisted by eve, of course. I really don't feel like they should get away with what they've done.

Kayla: Well, let's just hope it...backfires on them.

Jj: Yeah. All right, thank you, kayla.

Kayla: Anytime.

Hope: Jordan claims she has a baby.

Rafe: Yeah. Yeah. That she left with a friend in california.

Hope: Wait. How do you know any of this is true?

Rafe: I don'T. I don'T. But, uh, right now, I'm the only one she seems to trust.

Hope: Of course you're the only o-- which is why she told you about the baby.

Rafe: Yeah.

Hope: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: Not only did she tell me about it, but she asked me if I could find him. Her baby boy. And, uh...I promised her i would.

Eve: [Softly] Hey... why are you so worried that you are gonna lose tripp? You know their relationship is just a sham. And we are gonna prove it, right?

Claire: I know it started out that way, but... what if they actually end up falling in love? And then they don't get in trouble with I.C.E. But... instead, they end up... getting married and really happy and...what if I end up alone? What?

[Light laugh]

Eve: You... you're just reminding me of my daughter right now.

Claire: Paige?

Eve: You know there were times when she was so cheery and optimistic. But then there were also times that she was filled with all kinds of self-doubt, always worrying about the "what-ifs" and the "maybes". It was my job as the parent to assure her that everything is going to be okay.

Claire: Well, my mom can't really help me. She's far away.

Eve: I know. I know that. Let me be here for you, okay? I wanna ask you something. Why do you always feel like the sky is falling? And why do you feel that... that you don't deserve happiness, honey? Hmm?

[Dramatic chords]

[Off-key notes]

[Intense percussion]

Eve: Hey. If something's eating at you, talk to me. Come on, claire. Let me help you.

[Whispers] Come on.

Ciara: I don't care about what jordan or my mother or anybody else says about you, ben. I believe in you. I've gotten to see you for the man that you really are. The one who...rescued me. You rescued me off the side of the road, and you brought me back to health.

[Softly] Oh, my god. That man would never... ever, ever have set the fire that almost killed me. And I feel it with all of my heart, ben. I feel it with everything i have, and no one is ever gonna convince me otherwise.

[Soft, emotional music]

Ben: No one has ever... ever cared about me, ciara. Not like you do.

Ciara: Well, I do. I do care about you. So... so, so, so, so much.

[Soft, stirring music]

Hope: No, just... pause for a second. Just put on the brakes, okay? No. You can't do this. Rafe, I need you. I need you here, I need you on the force, I need you doing your job, not off searching for a baby that may not even exist. You don't even know!

Rafe: What's the big deal? You got your D.A. Ted here. He's gonna help you hold down the fort while I'm gone, all right?

Hope: Just stop. Please, just stop that, okay? Ted's gone. He went to resign, because he was worried about me losing my job and our marriage.

Rafe: Oh, come on, you know as well as I do the only reason that he would resign is because he knows that abe's gonna fire him. You're worried about me? You think that jordan's got me wrapped around her finger, and meanwhile, ted, he's doing a complete snow job on you.

[Whispers] I'll be here.

Eve: Hey. It's okay. Oh, it's okay, honey.

[Claire sobbing] Shh, shh, shh, claire. Honey, it's okay.

Jordan: And if that

looking glass gets broke

mama's gonna buy you

a billy goat

and if that billy goat

won't pull...

[Solemn music]

Jordan: Mama's gonna

buy you a cart and bull

and if that cart and bull

turn over

Tripp: It is an awesome photo.

Haley: I look like such a dork, but thanks anyway.

Tripp: Uh...I wish I had some to show you. I don't have that many childhood photos, uh... well, hey, why don't we each write down a list of our favorite things, and we give them to each other to memorize.

Haley: Yeah. That sounds like a great idea.

Tripp: Yeah?

Haley: Yeah.

Tripp: All right, all right. Let's get started then.

Jordan: Mama's gonna

buy you a dog named rover

and if that dog named rover

don't bark

Hope: You're going to look for jordan's son?

Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, I am. So I'm gonna go home and, uh, I'm gonna pack, I'm gonna book a flight... see if I can get out tomorrow. Are you done here? You wanna talk about it?

Hope: What?

Rafe: At home. Are you done?

Hope: I'll be right behind you.

Rafe: All right. I'll see you there then.

Jordan: Mama's gonna

buy you a horse and cart

and if that horse and cart

fall down

you'll still be the sweetest

little baby in town
