Ben: Okay, yeah. Yeah, I'll be right there.

[Hangs up] Ugh, damn it.

Ciara: Who was that?

Ben: It was ted laurent.

Ciara: Ted... w-what does he want?

Ben: He wants me to go sign the statement I gave in holly's investigation so they can close the case.

Ciara: Why?

Ben: Because I was on the grounds when she was taken.

Ciara: Yeah, but you weren't even on duty.

Ben: If I had been--

Ciara: Ben, there was nothing you could've done about it, okay?

[Gentle music]

Ben: I guess we'll never know now, will we? And now that little girl is dead.

Ciara: Come here.

[Melancholy music]

Nicole: Holly! I want to see my baby! Let me see--

Hope: No! No! No! Nicole, not like this. Not like this.

Nicole: [Sobs] Oh, no! No! No!

[David crying]

Lani: Rafe.

Rafe: Hmm? Hi.

Lani: I-it's okay. It's okay, sweetheart. Come here. It's okay. Come on. It's going to be okay, sweet boy. Hey. There we go. It's okay. What's going on? What's wrong?

Rafe: After what happened with nicole's baby, uh, how am I ever supposed to be responsible for a child again?

[Disquieting music]

Ted: [Sighs] If the bodies were not hector's friend and holly, who the hell were they?

Xander: I don't know, or care.

Ted: No, no, I care. I want to know who I helped you kill.

Xander: No one. That's the beauty of it. Those stiffs were already in the morgue.

Ted: How did you manage that?

Xander: Let's just say that my partner is very... resourceful.

Ted: How can I trust that you are telling me the truth?

Nicole: What the hell are you doing here?

Xander: I can ask you the same thing. All this time, I thought you were dead, and here you are, a living, breathing miracle. My wife is alive!

[Dramatic drum music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

[Melancholy music]

Rafe: We both know this marriage isn't working, so maybe we should, uh-- maybe we should think about making the separation more permanent.

Hope: Is that what you want?

Rafe: It's what you want, isn't it?

Hope: What I want to just--not to be sad anymore.

Lani: The death of nicole walker's daughter is all anyone is talking about. My heart breaks for her, but it also breaks for you, rafe. You're blaming yourself, and you have to know that none of this was your fault.

[Melancholy piano music]


Rafe: I just can't-- I can't get the picture out of my mind: The look on nicole's face when that gas tank blew. I can't help but think if I'd have done something differently, I... nicole would still be holding holly in her arms.

[Suspenseful synth music]

Ted: I need to know for sure if that child is still alive, and I certainly cannot take your word for it.

Yeah, this is da laurent. I just want to make sure, uh-- do you have positive id on the two bodies recovered from that crash? Uh, I gotta call you back. I didn't see you there.

Hope: That call. Do you have reason to believe that the little girl who died in the explosion wasn't nicole's daughter?

Ted: Mm....

[Somber music]

[Knocking at door]

Eric: Hi.

Sarah: Hi. I, um--I left a file on will's treatment in rex's room. Otherwise, I would never dream of bothering you and nicole.

Eric: Nicole's gone.

Nicole: Oh, you pig!

Xander: Oh, how I missed those little terms of endearment.

Brady: Would you get the hell out of here?

Nicole: You're disgusting!

Xander: I'm filled with joy! I thought you died in that fire, but yet here you are, my own sweet wife.

Brady: You're telling me that you didn't know she was alive?

Xander: Oh, not a clue.

Brady: Then what the hell are you doing here?

Ted: Where the hell have you been? Is holly all right?

Xander: Fine. Sleeping peacefully on her way to her new home. I'm here because of holly.

[Dramatic music]

(Announcer) do you push through migraine?

Ben: So many people tried to keep that little girl safe.

Ciara: Mm.

Ben: We all failed.

Ciara: What happened to holly is unimaginable, and to feel so helpless... I know how hard this must be for you. You know, there is something you can do: Make a difference in another child's life, "uncle ben."

Ben: Pssh...

Ciara: What? You were the one who said that you wanted to be more involved in david's life, and how lucky would he be to have his super awesome, amazing uncle ben teach him everything that's important in life, like--like how to use chopsticks, like how to bowl...

Ben: How to bowl?

Ciara: [Sputters]

Ben: How to bowl?

Ciara: How to bowl! I don't know how to bowl! How to ride a bike, how to ride a motorcycle, maybe. I don't know.

Ben: Maybe play a little catch? Skip some stones in the lake?

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

Ben: Help him with his homework. Maybe not. I was a terrible student, but...

Ciara: [Laughs]

Ben: Try.

Ciara: You know, you may have been a terrible student, but you are gonna be the best uncle ever.

Ben: Hmm. I don't think anybody has ever told me I could be the best at anything. Well, I don't know. It was just a weird sensation. I like it, though. Thank you.

Ciara: Yeah, well, that's because nobody knows you like I do, and david is going to be just as lucky to have you in his life as I am.

Ben: I'm the lucky one. Never forget it.

Ciara: Good, good. Then it is settled, but first, I have to go vote. I mean, after what jack deveraux did to haley, I'm not--I have to do everything I can to make sure that that creep doesn't end up being salem's next mayor, so I'm going to go do that, and then, I'm going to go convince rafe that you need to be in your nephew's life. Okay? See you later.

[Tender music]

Rafe: If I hadn't been pursuing the kidnapper, he wouldn't have lost control of the van. And hell, if I hadn't followed ted and shown up at that hotel where he was supposed to meet the guy, everything probably would've-- would've gone according to plan, and... nicole's child would still be alive.

Lani: You were trying to save that little girl, rafe.

Rafe: Yes. Yes, I was, but I was also trying to prove that ted was up to something, and because of that, that little girl is dead.

Lani: As a cop, I would have done the exact same thing, and as far as laurent's concerned, that man is definitely not what he seems.

Rafe: [Sighs] Yeah. Yeah, how come you and I are the only ones who can see it?

[Melancholy music]

Point is, I didn't listen to hope, I defied a direct order, and...

[David fusses] I went to that hotel, and I spooked the kidnapper into running.

Lani: There's no way you could've known that that would happen, rafe. You have to believe that holly's death is not your fault.

[David fusses]

Ted: I'm sorry to say, but, um, I have no doubt it was holly in that van. I had a clear view of the kidnapper when he put her in that vehicle.

Hope: Then, um, why call the coroner?

Ted: Uh, I was trying to make sure that she was being thorough and timely.

Hope: No, that is not why you made that call, is it, ted?

Ted: I don't know what you mean.

Hope: That little girl is dead, so you're doing what we're all doing: Going over every detail, no matter how small, trying to figure out if there was something that we could've done differently that could've changed the outcome.

Ted: Yeah.

Eric: Nicole blames me for holly's death.

Sarah: How could she? Eric, you did everything you possibly could from the moment that holly was placed in your arms. You loved that little girl!

Eric: I gave her up.

Sarah: Only because nicole wrote a letter saying that she wanted chloe to raise holly, and you didn't want to put holly through a custody battle.

Eric: Because she said i should've fought for him. Maybe she's right.

Sarah: She just lost her daughter. She's--she's grieving, and she's emotional, and she's gonna lash out at anyone and everyone because she's just trying to make sense of something that doesn't make any sense. Nicole loves you, eric, and that doesn't just go away-- not what you two have. Where is she?

Brady: She's at the salem inn.

Sarah: Okay, well, then, what are you waiting for? You need to go find her and talk to her.

Brady: I did! She wouldn't listen to me. The only one she's willing to accept comfort from right now is--is brady.

[Melancholy music]

Nicole: Why in the hell would you be here about holly?

Xander: I heard about holly on the news. The horrible accident-- the car went over an embankment, exploded.

Brady: Sh-shut your mouth. Show some decency.

Xander: I'm sorry, but... as soon as I heard about holly on the news, I knew exactly what I had to do. I had to come straight here to be with my dear uncle victor and aunt maggie.

Brady: Why in the hell would they want to see you, xander?

Xander: Because I have something important to tell them, but seeing as you're here, holly's mother, in the flesh, perhaps it's fitting that you hear what I have to say first.

[Suspenseful music]

[Spacey music]

Brady: What could you possibly have to say about holly?

Xander: What I wanted to say is... I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Nicole: You're sorry?

Xander: Well, you know how fond I was of the little tyke. I was her step-daddy, after all. The games of peekaboo, the nighty-night stories-- I mean, for a while there, we were quite happy, the three of us, back in nashville.

Nicole: Are you insane? We were never happy! Holly and I were your prisoners. You used that horrible recording to blackmail me into marrying you!

Xander: I merely used that recording to my advantage. Brady is the... twisted piece of work that actually made it. Actually, that makes this whole little moment between you guys very confusing. Aren't you supposed to be ass-over-tea- kettle in love with his brother?

Nicole: How you--

[Tense music]

Brady: Your mom... your mom told nicole that brady was the only one who told chloe to get out of the dimera mansion when she was targeted by the cartel.

Sarah: And, you know, maybe he did, but it's the way that he went about it-- whipping up more blackmail about our little kiss and then trying to force you into ramping up another custody battle for holly-- that's hardly hero material.

Brady: Yeah, well, maybe he was right, and so was nicole. Chloe was in danger, which put holly in the crosshairs, and I knew that, and I did nothing. So maybe if I did just, you know, step up, holly would still be alive.

Lani: Your instincts are what make you a good cop. Hope has to understand that you were just trying to do your job.

Rafe: Hmph. Not so much. She suspended me. Took my gun and badge.

Lani: You're kidding.

Rafe: No.

Lani: I'm really sorry, rafe.

Rafe: Yeah, me, too.

[Melancholy music]

She doesn't trust me anymore. I don't know. All we seem to do is hurt each other... so I said maybe we should... make our separation permanent.

Lani: Rafe, you don't mean that. You two are just upset about holly's death.

Rafe: No, no. You--

Lani: You can't make a decision like that right now.

Rafe: Yeah, you can. You know, it was a long time coming. You know that. I just don't think we can fix what's wrong with us.

Lani: Where's your ring?

Rafe: It's at the crash site where we lost holly. I, uh... threw it off a cliff.

Ted: I've hardly slept. Hope, what did I miss? Maybe it wouldn't have ended in tragedy if I fought rafe harder from going after that car.

Hope: I had no choice in suspending rafe over what happened.

Ted: Was that necessary?

Hope: He disobeyed a direct order, and now, a little girl is dead.

Lani: I know exactly what you need. How about we take david to the park and teach him how to feed the ducks?

Rafe: Yeah, I'm good.

Lani: Rafe, come on. It's a beautiful day outside, and I'm not just gonna let you sit in the house and wallow.

Rafe: Oh, w-wallow?

Lani: Yeah.

Rafe: I don't wallow. I'm not wallowing.

Lani: Not on my watch, you're not.

[David fusses] And david agrees, don't you? I think you're outnumbered.

Rafe: All right, fine. I need to vote anyway.

Lani: Good, because my dad and jack deveraux are in a dead heat, and not that I would try to influence your vote, but I am open to buying you a hot dog.

Rafe: Oh, a hot dog?

Lani: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: Oh, okay. Uh, here's the thing, though. Abe's a great man, great friend, and he's gonna be a great mayor again, so he's already got my vote.

Lani: Yeah. I just hope the people of salem feel the same way.

Rafe: Yeah.

Lani: Okay, how about I go change david, and then we can head out?

Rafe: I got it.

Lani: Really?

Rafe: Yeah, really. Not scared of a diaper, you know.

Lani: Okay.

Rafe: I got this. Come on. Hey, d-man, you ready? Let's do this. I got it!

Lani: Okay, go.

Rafe: Yeah.

[David fusses]

Ciara: Hey! Lani, I'm glad I caught you. Um, I was actually hoping that I can talk to rafe about ben spending some more time with his nephew.

Lani: Yeah, do you really think that's a good idea?

Ciara: I know you have your issues with ben hanging out with david, but it's kind of not your call.

Lani: But it is jordan's, and she made it very clear that she didn't want ben anywhere near her son.

Ciara: I know. I get it. I get that everyone is really worked up about ben weston, ex-serial killer, holding a baby. I get that, but lani, david is his nephew, and he has every, every right in the world to spend time with that little boy and have a relationship with him, especially now, after everything that happened with holly jonas. I... every moment in life is precious, and all ben is trying to do is share some of them with david and actually have a real part in his life, you know?

Lani: I'm sorry, ciara, but that's not gonna happen.

[Melancholy music]

Ciara: If rafe could just call jordan, try to convince her that--that ben has changed and that he deserves to be in david's life... jordan listens to rafe, okay? Maybe--maybe she will agree.

Lani: From what I understand, there's no chance.

Ciara: Okay, so... maybe he doesn't even have to tell her anything at all.

Lani: And go against jordan's wishes behind her back? Come on, ciara. You know rafe is not that kind of guy.

Ciara: Yeah, but rafe is the kind of guy who believes in family, and he believes in chances, and jordan did put david in rafe's care, so that kind of makes it his decision, right? Come on, please. If I could just call him, or maybe ben-- ben could just call him and talk to him for a little bit. Please, lani.

Lani: Rafe is inside with the baby.

Ciara: Great. Great. I'll call ben and, uh, have him come over.

Lani: Wait, no, no, no. What I meant was david is sick.

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

Lani: He has a fever.

Ciara: Oh. I'm sorry. I'm sorry to hear that.

Lani: Yeah, we just--we want to keep him inside today, make sure he gets lots of rest.

Ciara: Yeah, sure, for real. Um, okay. Uh, so I will just--I will call rafe later, and we'll make arrangements for another time. Thanks, lani.

Lani: You're welcome.

[Poignant music]

Rafe: Okay. Handled it.

[Both laugh] Ah, all right. Ready?

Lani: You know what? Let's just wait a moment. Um, I think I want to pack a few snacks.

Rafe: Oh, okay. Snacks. Good. Snacks. You like snacks.

Sarah: No, no, you don't get to do this. You don't get to blame yourself for not giving in to your brother's blackmail. It's not like brady's concern was over holly's safety. He wanted chloe out of the dimera mansion because he was jealous of stefan dimera. Does nicole know that?

Eric: Listen, I'm not about to start trashing brady.

Sarah: You are too good of a man. Brady came between you and nicole once before. Do not let him do it again.

Eric: Nicole's my only concern. She needs all the support she can get.

[Tender music]

As much as I want to be that for her, I... I'm grateful that brady is there for her to lean on.

Xander: Does eric even have a clue that his dear brother is using your tragic loss as an excuse to canoodle with his one true love?

Brady: Xander, will you just mind your own business and get the hell out of here, please?

Xander: This is my business. Nicole is still my wife.

Nicole: Only because of that recording, but you don't have it anymore, 'cause I took it.

Xander: Yes, that was a rather stout whack on the head you gave me. Not very nice.

Nicole: Yeah, well, i would've killed you if I had to.

Xander: Oh, I miss that passion, but don't you think that murdering one man is quite enough? Well, there's no proof now, is there, which means we are getting a divorce.

Xander: Are you saying that you still have the recording?

Nicole: It burned in the explosion.

Xander: Well, that's what we all assumed about you, but then, miracle of miracles, here you are, and here it is.

[Uneasy music]

[Tense investigatory music]

Ben: Xander cook?

Ted: What the hell are you doing?

Ben: What the hell does xander cook have to do with holly jonas' death?

Tech: At safelite autoglass,we know sooner or later...

Sarah: I'm gonna go talk to nicole.

Eric: No, please--

Sarah: Someone has to. I saw firsthand how much you loved that little girl. I saw how good you were to her and for her. Nicole needs to know that.

Eric: So amazing. You're so ready to fight battles for people who let you down.

Sarah: No, don't--

Eric: Care about you so much.

Sarah: Don't--

[Sighs] I understand, and I'm fine.

[Laughs] Okay, maybe I'm not fine, but I--I will be.

[Tender music]

Eric: You know, before everything went upside down, you said you were gonna tell rex something about us. So what did you end up saying to him?

Sarah: I just told him that it was about the wedding, but it wasn't important.

Eric: So you're gonna go through with it?

Sarah: I think it's best for everyone.

Eric: What's best for you?

Sarah: Rex I--he's a great guy, and--and we're good together, and I'm gonna walk down the aisle, but... now, with losing holly, we're just--we're gonna-- we're gonna push it off for a while, which means that rex and I both are going to be here for you and nicole.

[Tense music]

Nicole: Give that! Ugh.

Xander: I don't think so.

Nicole: Where did you get that?

Xander: I found it in the wreckage after that building blew to hell.

Nicole: You were there? Were you the one who pulled me out of the fire?

Xander: No. As much as i would love to play the hero, sorry to disappoint. I was too busy saving my own ass.

Brady: If you didn't know that nicole was alive, why are you carrying that around with you?

Xander: Well, I was so torn up about what happened with holly, I wanted to give it back to uncle vic as a peace offering.

Brady: Oh. That was big of you. Tell you what: Why don't you give it to me, and I'll make sure he gets it?

Xander: Sorry, mate. Things are different now, now that my beautiful wife is alive and kicking.

Ted: I was cleaning up some old paperwork. The question is, why are you looking through confidential documents?

Ben: I was looking for this. Called me in here to sign my statement, so let's go ahead and get this over with so I can get the hell out of here. Know this isn't my favorite place in the world.

[High chiming music]

Anything else?

Ted: That'll be all. Thank you.

Ben: Awesome.

Lani: [Laughs]

Rafe: No. Here you go, pal. All right, try here. Oh, yeah. Whoo. You're one enthusiastic eater. Hold on. One second. Let me fix you up.

Lani: He's not the only one.

Rafe: What do you mean? What?

Lani: Come here.

Rafe: Really?

Lani: [Laughs] Yeah.

Rafe: Thank you. Thank you.

Lani: Mm-hmm. [Laughs]

[Quiet music]

-We bought a house in a neighborhood

[Poignant music]

Hope: Hey.

Rafe: Hope.

Hope: Lani.

Lani: Hi.

Rafe: Hey. Do you want to talk some more?

Hope: Took off your wedding ring.

Rafe: Yeah.

Hope: No. That says it all. That says it all.

Ben: Hey there, beautiful.

Ciara: Hi.

Ben: Hi. Wanna grab some lunch?

Ciara: Sure.

Ben: Did you have the chance to talk to rafe?

Ciara: No, not really, but I did have the chance to talk to lani.

Ben: Not my biggest fan.

Ciara: It's not her decision, but she did say that david had a fever, so they're keeping him in today.

Ben: Okay.

Ciara: Yeah, don't worry about it, ben. It'll happen. We just gotta give it a couple of days. Did you sign your statement today?

Ben: Mm, yes, I did. It's a little weird, though.

Ciara: Why?

Ben: I don't know. Laurent got all... bent out of shape over nothing. It's like, total overreaction.

Ciara: Yeah, well, it seems that everyone in this town is on overload after what happened to that poor baby.

Sarah: Do you need anything? Food?

Eric: No, I'm good. I think there's still some of, uh... rex's casserole in the fridge.

Sarah: Oof. Lucky you.

[Tender music]

Eric: Thank you for everything.

Sarah: That mean that you give me permission to talk to nicole?

Eric: No. It means I appreciate your support. I think it's best to give nicole some space.

Sarah: I'm gonna say it again. You know that this is just grief. Nicole is going to realize how much you love her and how much you love holly, but you cannot give up, because she needs you, whether she knows it or not.

[Tense music]

Xander: This is such a difficult time, what with losing holly and all. I really think the best place for my wife is by my side, and this recording will guarantee that that's exactly where she stays.

Nicole: I want a divorce, you monster!

Xander: That's just your grief talking.

Nicole: If you don't give me divorce, you better listen to that recording and remind yourself of what I'm capable of.

Xander: Love that spirit. Darling, wait.

Brady: Hold on. You're not going anywhere.

Innovative... concentrated...

Rafe: Okay. Well, look out, ducks. Here we come.

Lani: Ducks! [Laughs]

[Subdued music]

Ben: W--I thought you said david was sick and couldn't go out.

Ciara: Yeah, that's what lani told me. Obviously, she was lying.

Ben: Huh.

Rafe: Thank you.

Lani: For what?

Rafe: Getting me out of the house, out of my funk. This is exactly what I needed. Watching this guy eat twice his weight in food.

Lani: [Laughs] Look how happy he is.

Rafe: Yeah.

Lani: [Laughs] He lights up every time you walk into a room.

Rafe: Does he?

Lani: He does, and I'm also noticing that you're getting pretty good at this whole childcare thing.

Rafe: Oh, is that right? Just taking my lead from you.

Lani: Oh.

Rafe: You make it look easy. Right, buddy?

Lani: You ready?

Rafe: Doesn't she? Yeah.

[Dials phone]

Hope: Belle? I need your help. I want to file for divorce.

[Mournful music]

[Knocking at door]

Nicole: [Cries]

[Dramatic music]

Xander: You should let me catch up with my wife.

Brady: This ends now. She just lost her child, xander, okay? She's raw. Even you can see that. Let this go!

Xander: I'm not a monster, brady. I feel her pain.

Brady: All right? Then prove it and give me the recording.

Xander: Okay. But I am gonna need something in return.
