Brady: [Sighs] Heard about holly. I'm so sorry. How is nicole?
Eric: I don't know. I have no idea where she is. She walked out on me.
Abe: Nicole. I can't believe it's really you.
Nicole: Oh, abe...
Abe: Oh. Oh. Oh, sweetheart, sweetheart. Oh, I'm so sorry. Oh, I'm so sorry.
Maggie: Yeah, thank you, mel. Yeah, I know you'd be on the next plane. But you know we're all-- we're still in shock. Yes, so it's probably best to wait. Yeah, of course. I'll keep you in touch.
[Weeping] Yeah and I love you too.
Maggie: Uh... um, make it a vodka.
Tripp: Claire, we have been over and over this, okay? You are my girlfriend. I am your boyfriend. But haley's entire future is at stake here. So we have to really sell our marriage, or she will lose everything she's fought so hard for.
Eve: See what I mean?
Haley: Wait a minute, you recorded tripp and claire?
Eve: Oh, no, wait, wait, wait. It gets better.
Claire: I know, I know, i know. I just--come on, it's so hard being away from you through this whole charade. I mean, you've got to understand, tripp, it's like-- it's like torture for me.
Tripp: I know, I know, and i will make it up to you. I promise.
Claire: Yeah? Well, I already miss you. You gonna miss me?
Tripp: You know I will.
Claire: Okay, then prove it. Kiss me.
Eve: Now that is where he lays a big ol' smooch on claire. Gosh, as a bride, that's gotta hurt, huh?
Jj: Look, I knew that he would do pretty much anything to win an election, but a fake recording?
Eve: No, jj. The marriage is fake. This recording here is 100% bonafide.
Claire: Tripp, I mean it. All right? I can wait. As long as it takes.
Tripp: Wow, claire that is--
[Both laugh] Yes, I know. I know. Patience is definitely not my, um, my best event. But I do want to prove that i can be a better person. Because I love you. And I'm sorry, okay? I didn't mean to be so horrible.
Tripp: No, no, no. It's me that was horrible. I put you through so much, and I'm so, so sorry, claire.
Claire: Come here.
Melinda: What the hell are you doing?
Jack: Jennifer. I... I thought that you were in paris with abigail.
Jennifer: Yeah, I was. But now I'm back.
Jennifer: Because of you.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Jack: I'm glad that you came back home. I'm glad because we may not be husband and wife anymore, but we need to find a way to coexist. I mean, we have children, we have grandchildren. Least we could do is try to get along, maybe even be friends.
Jennifer: Okay, you misunderstood me because when i said I came back because of you, what I meant was I came back because I had to cast my vote against you.
Eve: So this is proof of everything jack and I have been saying all along that haley's marriage is a sham.
Haley: No, no. You're wrong. It's not true.
Eve: Oh, really? Well, I think we all just heard tripp admit it here.
Jj: Eve, where'd you get that recording?
Melinda: You are in public. Are you insane? If anyone else had a caught you just now, my sister could be deported.
Claire: Chill out. There's no one else here.
Tripp: And haley knows that we still care about each other, but trust me. Like, we've been very careful.
Melinda: Then why were you caught on video?
Tripp: Wait, what video?
Abe: Spoke to brandon. And needless to say, he's thrilled his sister's alive.
Nicole: I think I'm better off dead.
Abe: Oh. Don't say that.
Nicole: Abe. Holly was my everything.
Abe: Sweetheart. Do you know how many people love you? How many of us are standing by to help you through this. Come on, come on. Come inside and I'll tell you all about it, huh?
Let me know if you need anything else.
Maggie: It's okay, sweetheart. It's okay.
Abe: I'll give you two some privacy.
Maggie: Thank you.
[Sobs] You know how much I loved holly.
Nicole: Of course.
Maggie: And you know that I'm here for you, whatever you want and ever you need. I'm sure that at a time like this though, you want to lean on eric.
Nicole: Actually, maggie, eric is the last person I want to comfort me. What happened to holly is his fault.
Eric: The reason why i stopped by--just want to see if anybody had heard from nicole.
Brady: I haven'T. What do you mean she walked out on you?
Eric: She blames me. She thinks that I'm the reason her daughter's dead.
Brady: [Sighs] No, eric, she's in shock. She just lost her only child. She's grieving. You know when people are grieving they say things out sadness and anger. Doesn't mean they're true.
Eric: They are true, brady! Nobody understands that better than you.
Nicole: I can't understand why eric didn't protect holly. He should have done everything in his power to save her.
Maggie: Nicole, listen--
Nicole: No, maggie, I need you to understand something. When I thought I was gonna die, when I handed my daughter over because I thought I was never gonna see her again, one thing that I held on to was that eric was gonna raise her and keep her safe. He swore to me, but he didn'T.
Maggie: Yes, but he had full intentions of honoring your wish. See, in the end, he felt that it was best for holly if she be raised with parker. And so that's why he agreed to let chloe have custody of her.
Nicole: But when he knew about the threat from the cartel, he should've done everything he could to get holly out of the dimera mansion. Why did he let her stay there? How--I mean, how could you all not be out of your mind with fear? What--why didn't somebody do something!?
Maggie: Well, actually someone did.
Eric: You know, you asked me over and over and over again to get chloe and those kids out of stefan's house and I did nothing.
Brady: Why do you think holly was with chloe in the first place, hm? That's on me, eric. I put that whole thing in motion. If I hadn't blackmailed nicole and forced her to leave town out of jealousy, chloe would have never had holly in the first place. No, you and nicole would have had holly, raising her...
Eric: Brady, we have been over this already.
Brady: That's what it would have been.
Eric: You would have done whatever it took to keep holly safe.
Brady: I was--I was also being selfish, okay? I wanted another shot at chloe. I wanted her the hell away from stefan, so I reached into my bag of tricks, and instead of controlling myself, I used lies
[Clapping] And manipulation and threats. And I'm not proud of it. You hear me?
Tripp: What are you talking about?
Melinda: A video of the two of you taken shortly before you married haley. You were both in bed at the salem inn talking about how your marriage was gonna be a total sham.
Tripp: No, no, no, that's impossible.
Melinda: I saw the video with my own eyes.
Tripp: Camera? How? Why?
Melinda: I assumed it was set up by someone with a vested interest.
Eve: Okay, well, come over here and let me show you how this camera works. Here's the camera right there. You're gonna push that button to start recording, and then as soon as tripp tells you that he's marrying haley just to fool immigration, then you'll push "stop" and it'll go straight to my camera--my phone.
Claire: Okay, okay, I got it. Get out of here! Go!
Eve: Okay, all right. Got it. Purse. All right, good luck.
Tripp: Okay, so who was it? Who made the video?
Jack: You really came all the way back from europe just to vote against me?
Jennifer: I came back to cast my vote for abe.
Jack: Contrary to popular belief, abe carver is no saint.
Jennifer: None of us is, jack. And I understand that politics is a dirty business, but you really crossed the line when you used those photos to smear abe at the final debate.
Jack: I needed to expose him for the man he really is.
Jennifer: No, what you needed was a bump in the polls, but don't you underestimate these voters because they saw right through your stunt, jack.
Jack: It was not a stunt. It was proof. It was proof that abe is a hypocrite with no integrity. The only reason voters are turning against me is because jj brought up the--my history with kayla. But that was so long ago. You know I act--I went to kayla. I went to her and I asked her to please put out a statement. Just put out a statement.
Jennifer: What? And say what? That you didn't rape her, jack?
Jack: No, of course not. I asked her simply to tell the truth--that she forgave me and she refused, so I don't know, so it's one--
Jennifer: This is amazing that you are now angry with the woman that you sexually assaulted because she couldn't save your campaign? That is victim blaming.
Jack: No, of course not. You know it's not that.
Jennifer: Yes, it is.
Jack: It's not that at all.
Jennifer: It's exactly what it is.
Jack: I... I asked her to please help me. When she reminded me of what i did, what happened, she told me that she had gotten past it, that she forgave me, and you forgave me too. You forgave me. You said that I paid my debt to society, I had got to therapy, i worked. You know, I was even able to help you when I found out that you were raped. And now, honestly, can you tell me--can you tell me honestly that I shouldn't be mayor because--because of this--
Jennifer: I can tell you so many reasons why you shouldn't be mayor, and at the top of the list is your wife.
Eve: You had to know we were keeping tabs on you. I mean, jack's whole campaign is built on immigration issue.
Jj: Tell me about the recording.
Eve: Well, it was made right before the wedding. We were just waiting for the perfect opportunity to catch you or your "husband," you know, proving what we already knew. And, of course, tripp just gave it to us.
Haley: Please. Please, you can't release that recording. I'll be deported and tripp will be arrested.
Eve: Easy now, all right? There's no reason for us to go public with it.
Jj: Why not?
Eve: Well, because haley here is gonna tell everyone the truth herself. is going to happen. You're gonna come forward. You're gonna admit that you seduced tripp for the sole purpose of getting your green card. Of course, yeah, you will get in a whole lot of trouble for that, but tripp won'T. And I know that you'll wanna protect him since he did so much to help you.
Jj: Since when do you care what happens to tripp?
Eve: Dang, you gonna give me a hard time 'cause I'm trying to keep your cousin out of jail, jj?
Jj: You don't give a damn about him, so there's got to be some other reason you wanna keep him out of this. I wanna know what it is.
Melinda: I assume jack and eve made the video. They've been gunning for haley from the start, thinking their "tough" stance on immigration would bring in votes.
Tripp: Yeah, but if they had that video to begin with, then why didn't they just go public with it right away?
Melinda: Oh, they tried to. You remember that big campaign rally they held a few weeks ago? They had a huge crowd assembled in the square, waiting for some big announcement. That's when they were planning to play the video.
Claire: Right, but it malfunctioned and nothing came up on the screen.
Melinda: And so they switched gears on the fly and made it an "all-american" wedding instead.
Tripp: Yeah, I still don't get it though. Like, if--if jack and eve did this, how would they even know to plant the camera?
Claire: Okay, well, they do live at the salem inn, so maybe they caught wind of the fact that we booked a room there?
Tripp: Yeah, no, we were so careful.
Melinda: Not careful enough. I mean, luckily, I found out about it.
Melinda: Well, I knew how viciously jack and eve were going after my little sister. When they said they had a big announcement coming up, I got nervous. I broke into their room, found the video, and I erased it.
Tripp: Wow. I never thought you'd go that far to protect haley. You told her that she was on her own.
Melinda: She's my family. I had to do something. I know from personal experience that jack and eve will stop at nothing to win this election.
Jack: So you think the reason I shouldn't be mayor is because you hate my wife? I mean, talk about vindictive.
Jennifer: No, I just think that eve is one of the many reasons why I don't think you should be mayor, jack.
Abe: Excuse me. I just wanted to thank jennifer for her support.
Jennifer: It's totally my pleasure, abe.
Abe: As I'm sure you're well aware, I'm still in the race, jack. Even though you and eve have thrown everything, every trick in the book at me.
Jack: Well, not every trick, abe. And I wouldn't count me out just yet either.
Eric: Nicole's dying wish was for me to take care of her daughter. I promised that I would do that, and I didn'T. I didn't even have the courage to fight for custody.
Eric: You were going to. But in the end, you realized that a long, ugly court battle, that wasn't gonna be good for holly. You did the right thing there.
Eric: Did I?
Eric: Or was I a coward? Did I pay for what I did to daniel? Is that why I decided to give holly over to chloe? And now that sweet, innocent... she's gone. And now I've lost nicole too, so maybe I am the only one to blame.
Nicole: Brady was the one who spoke up?
Maggie: Yes. In the beginning, he was adamant that chloe and the kids not move in with stefan. And he-- he wanted me to convince chloe that they would be safer at our house, and he was livid when i wouldn't do it.
Nicole: I'm just so stunned that brady was the voice of reason.
Nicole: 'Cause everyone let me down, maggie, especially eric.
[Coughing] I mean, can you explain to me what--[Coughs] Just tell me-- I'm sorry, do you mind? Maggie. This is vodka.
Eve: We're not going to turn tripp in because tripp is jack's nephew.
Jj: Please. The first time my dad met tripp, he played him. And since then, the campaign has been attacking him nonstop. In this narrative of yours, that's tripp in the recording, incriminating himself.
Eve: Well, and claire. You know, this recording implicates claire as well. I mean, do you really want to take her down, jj? I mean, I'm sure you don't, haley. Claire's been nothing but supportive.
Haley: No. No, of course I don't want to hurt claire or tripp. They've done so much for me.
Eve: Well, then you need to come clean immediately.
Haley: But if I do, I'll be-- I'll be deported.
Jj: What is this for? More votes? It's too late for that. It's election day. My dad is going to lose. You'd be doing this for no reason.
Eve: Well, the polls don't close until 9:00 P.M. There is still time to turn this around after the damage you did by dredging up jack's past with kayla. So here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna call a press conference. I expect you to be in the square shortly. Otherwise, I will release this recording, and we'll let the chips fall where they may.
[Soft dramatic music]
Brady: You didn't lose nicole. You just got her back.
Eric: She wants nothing to do with me.
Brady: Eric, she's just angry. She's angry. She's hurt. She knows that you loved holly. She knows that you would have done anything for her, including fight for her in court. I can attest to that. So can maggie. I think you need to talk to her some more.
Eric: I tried.
Brady: And what did she do? She lashed out at you, right? She probably said some really, really harsh things. You know why she said those things to you? 'Cause she could. You're closer to her than anyone in the world. You are the one guy that she knew that she could express herself to. All that grief and all that anger because she knew that you would never abandon her or judge her. All you would do is keep loving her. No matter what. And that's the truth.
Nicole: Maggie. Are you drinking again?
[Sobs] I'm just so upset about holly that in a moment of weakness I ordered--ordered it. I wish I could say for sure that I wouldn't have taken a sip. It's so hard.
Nicole: I know.
Nicole: Should you go to a meeting?
Maggie: Mm-mm. No. I want to go home.
Nicole: Okay. Let me take you.
Maggie: [Sobbing] It's amazing with all that you're going through... you are the one to comfort me.
Nicole: Yeah. It's okay.
Maggie: Thank you.
Nicole: It's okay.
Abe: Whatever you may have up your sleeve, it may be too little too late. Besides, every other stunt you pulled has blown up in your face.
Jennifer: Hmm, so true.
Eve: Oh! I thought you left the country. I guess it was too much to hope for a permanent relocation. Hm. Jack, can I talk to you in private, please? Thank you.
Abe: Should I be worried?
Jennifer: Abe, I know that the voters are smart enough to see them for the shameless opportunists that they are. But with the two of them, i don't know. I think you should always be worried.
Haley: Jj. The clock is ticking. I need to make a decision.
Jj: Don't do it. Haley. Don't let them win. So there you are with your depression
Haley: What are you saying? You think I should blow off eve?
Jj: No, I think that you should let this play out.
Haley: And let her go public with that recording? Jj, my life is about to blow up and I can't let tripp or claire be collateral damage, especially--especially after what they've done for me. So I'm gonna have to do whatever it takes to protect them.
Jj: If you do, you'll be deported. Look, I don't want that to happen.
Haley: I know. I know, me either, jj, but i don't have a choice.
Jj: Haley. Really think about this. Before you do something you might regret the rest of your life.
Tripp: What is all of this?
Abe: I'm already in a fight. I don't want to have another.
Melinda: Neither do I. I actually came over to thank you. We were fierce competitors in the mayor's race, but that never stopped you from speaking out in support of my sister. And I truly appreciate that.
Abe: Well, I meant what i said. She deserves to live in peace.
Melinda: I don't know if voters even care what I think anymore, but for what it's worth, I have thrown my full weight behind you.
Jack: [Clears throat] H-hello. Hello, everybody. Hello, may I have your attention please? It's all very exciting, isn't it? Election day is finally here!
[Laughs] Well, you know the polls are still open. So I hope everybody takes this opportunity to go and vote because every vote counts.
Eve: [Softly] I do not see haley anywhere.
Jack: Um, should we wait?
Eve: No, I don't want to. Thank you, salemites! How is everyone today? Happy voting day!
Eve: First of all, I just want to start by thanking all of you. My husband and I want to sincerely thank you for being with us from the beginning, and for those of you who haven't decided who you want to vote for yet, I want you to know that we have a very special announcement to make.
Jack: We do.
Both: Yes, we do.
[Camera shutter clicking]
Maggie: It's so sweet of you to bring me home.
Nicole: Do you need anything?
Maggie: A nap.
[Both chuckle] I didn't sleep much last night. Thank you.
Eric: Thank you for listening. I'm gonna go find nicole.
Nicole: I'm so glad to see you.
I didn't have to run for helP.
Tripp: Hey, I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm getting a weird vibe.
Haley: No worries, okay? It's all good.
Eve: When I say we have a "big" announcement, I'm talking "huuuge."
Jack: [Laughs] You know, i think there's actually someone who can probably say this much better than we can. Uh, ms. Chen--or should I say, mrs. Dalton, please, come on down. Please, don't be shy. Right here.
Melinda: Haley, what are you doing?
Haley: What I have to do.
Brady: I'm sorry about holly.
Nicole: Thank you.
Eric: I've been worried too. You didn't come back home last night.
Nicole: I went to the salem inn. I needed to be alone. I just spoke to maggie. And she told me that you are the only person--the only person who fought hard to protect holly, and I just wanted to come here and thank you. It means so much to me that someone had the good sense to look after my daughter. Seems like you were alone in your efforts.
Eric: We all loved holly. We all tried to keep her safe, especially eric.
Nicole: No, it wasn't enough! It wasn't enough.
Eric: Listen, I know you're hurting. So am I. I came here looking for you, so please, if we can just go some place quiet so we can talk.
Nicole: I'm not going anywhere with you.
Eric: Nicole, I'm begging you. If I ever met anything to you at all, please.
[Camera shutter clicks]
Tripp: Hey, do you know what's going on here?
Haley: Today is election day. A chance for everyone to make their voice heard. But before you vote, you should all have the facts. I came to this country from china when I was 13 years old. I didn't speak the language, had no friends, hardly any family. But despite all the obstacles i had to overcome, I had this feeling inside me. This strange mix of excitement and optimism, which I now realize was hope. Because everywhere I looked, there was opportunity. A chance to grow, to learn, to connect. And when I was scared or unsure there were people--kind, generous people willing to help me. I went to school here. Got my nursing degree, and found work that is meaningful and fulfilling in ways I never could've imagined. I love this country. And I love salem. It's my home. And words cannot express how grateful I am for what so many wonderful people here have done for me. Through my profession, I'd hoped that in some small way, I could give back to the community that has welcomed me with opened arms. Most of you have been forgiving of my mistakes. Most of you still accept me. But not everyone. As you know, for some time now, jack deveraux has been insisting that my marriage to tripp dalton is fake. That I broke the law to stay in this country. And the truth is, he's right.
Eric: I know your heart is broken. Seeing the disappointment in your eyes. I know you hate me. I hate myself, and I'm not asking you for forgiveness or to stop hating me. I'm just asking you to talk to me.
Eric: Please don't shut me out, not now. Just tell me what you need, what you want.
Nicole: The only thing I need from you right now, eric, is for you to leave. Now!
Haley: This charade has taken a terrible toll on everyone i care about. And that has to end now. It's time for me to be honest with each and every one of you and admit that my marriage is a fraud. But let me be clear. My husband, tripp dalton, is completely innocent. I lied to him. I used him. And convinced him that my feelings for him were real. Tripp is the victim here. He had no idea that I only pretended to love him so i wouldn't get deported. I did this out of desperation because, as I've already told you, I love this country so much. But tripp is a wonderful, amazing person who deserves much better than me, and I can't allow him or anyone else to suffer because of my actions. I can't continue to let anyone else pay the price when I'm the one who deserves to be punished. The person--the only person here to blame for everything that's happened is me. And I'm ready to face the consequences.
[Soft dramatic music]
Brady: Nicole, eric showed up here, out of his mind with worry. All he wants to do is be here for you. You need each other right now. The man is devastated right now.
Nicole: I don't care how devastated he is, and don't you dare defend him.
Brady: You just need to know--
Nicole: No! I said no! No! I don't want to listen. I don't want to listen to anybody. My daughter is dead, and you are the only one who fought for her, the only one!
Brady: I know. It's okay. It's all right.
Nicole: [Exhales deeply]
Xander: Pardon the interruption... but would you mind taking your hands off my wife?
