Jack: There she is-- salem's gorgeous new police commissioner.
Eve: Mr. Mayor.
Jack: [Exhales] Already hard at work.
Jack: So! Any news on the search for haley chen?
Eve: Uh, not yet. But you do know when we bring her in...we have to arrest your son.
Jack: Jj made his choice. Now he has to live with the consequences. You and I cannot be seen as going easy on friends and family the same way that hope and abe were.
Eve: Well, I just wanna make sure we're on the same page.
Jack: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. So... any new leads?
Eve: Jack, I--
Jack: Ben weston? Why are you fixating on ben?
Ciara: I thought we were going to dinner.
Ben: Uh...I'm sorry. Stefan is on the warpath right now. He has me going over every single security report until we can figure out how the hell we missed up this whole holly situation.
Ciara: He's blaming you?
Ben: No, he doesn't have to. I blame myself. Things have just gotten a lot worse since chloe moved out.
Ciara: So...no dinner.
Ben: [Sighs] I'm afraid I'm gonna be stuck here all night.
Ciara: That's fine, 'cause I'll just have to keep you company then.
Ben: Wh-- are you sure?
Ciara: [Light laugh] We're a team now, okay? This is how it works.
Jj: Where is rory? He should have called me about the passports by now.
Haley: Jj, are you sure you can trust this guy? You said he's really sketchy.
Jj: Yeah, he's totally sketchy, but that's exactly why we need him right now.
[Phone rings] That's him.
[Beep] Did you get the passports?
Rory: That I did. So according to what I have in my hot little hands, you and your girl are now... mr. And mrs. Dylan and lily manheim. New identities, new addresses-- the works.
Jj: Dylan and lily manheim. Got it.
Rory: Hold up, okay--we still need passport photos. Uh, you and your hot babe are all over the internet. You're not gonna get far with those faces.
Jj: You think we need disguises.
Rory: Or...I could take her out of the country for you, 'cause nobody's lookin' for me.
Jj: Yeah. Thank you, but no thank you. We'll change up our looks, and you send new pics.
Rory: I'll be waiting.
Haley: Is this really gonna work...jj?
Jj: Do you trust me?
Haley: Of course I do.
Jj: Leave it to me.
Claire: Ah... wow, jj and haley are all over the news. I don't know how they've managed to keep away from the police so far.
Tripp: Jj's resourceful.
Claire: Or they had help. How do you think they pulled it off?
Tripp: I have no idea...but I'd really rather not talk to you about it.
Claire: Okay, but you were there when they escaped, right?
Tripp: Jj shoved me. He and haley made a break for it, and then that was the last I heard from them.
Claire: Mm-hmm. Is it, tripp? Is it really?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Marlena: Okay. Thanks, honey. Tell will we love him. Mm-hmm. Bye.
John: Everything all right with will?
Marlena: He had... another episode. In the square. He saw the plaque there and... didn't remember tom and alice.
John: I'm sorry.
Marlena: I think his symptoms are getting worse.
John: [Sighs] Hey, I talked to rex.
Marlena: Any information about the formula?
John: Unfortunately, no. It seems that that diary just disappeared out of seth burns' office.
Marlena: You know what? I've got an idea how to find it.
Ben: Oh, what's all that? Got a little arts and crafts project?
Ciara: Sort of. Um, you remember how I was telling you that claire was freaking out after tripp broke up with her.
Ben: I do.
Ciara: Yeah, well... um, when I walked in, I walked in on her taking out her anger on maggie's precious figurines.
Ben: Damn. You're gonna fix 'em for her?
Ciara: Only one is salvageable, but I figured it'd be worth a shot, you know?
Ben: That's very generous of you. Especially considering your history with good old claire.
Ciara: Yeah, well, we're doing better now, so I thought I'd try to help her out with a little bit of super glue and elbow grease. I just wish it were this easy for claire to put herself back together, you know?
Claire: Okay, so you're just not gonna answer me?
Tripp: [Small laugh] You know, why the hell should I?
Claire: [Sighs] Okay. Yeah. I-I guess you shouldn'T. You do not owe me answers about anything. Look, I just want you to know that... listen, if haley or jj need any help at all, I am here, okay? If they need money, I can ask my pop pop about getting an advance--
Tripp: No. No, that won't be necessary.
Claire: Okay, well, if haley does try to contact you... just let her know that I am here to help. No questions asked.
Jj: I found a can of kerosene for that lantern--left it outside. Also, I grabbed a few, uh, props from the storage shed to help with our passport photos.
Jj: Growing up, I, uh, i heard all kinds of legends about various hortons hiding out here back in the day.
Haley: Hiding from what?
Jj: You'd be surprised. Um, there's a pretty healthy collection of disguises in here, so gotta be something in this trunk we can use.
Haley: Oh! Wow, okay. Yeah. Yeah, your family is very strange.
Jj: Yeah, tell me about it.
[Both laugh] Here. What do you think?
Haley: Oh, it's perfect, if-- if--if you wanna put on a magic show at a carnival.
[Both laughing] Oh.
Haley: Oh, oh, and--and let's see, what do you think... of... these are tiny little glasses. Do I look like a "lily" to you?
Jj: Definitely a lily.
Jj: I always wanted to be a blonde.
Jj: You think?
Haley: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. I like it, yeah.
Jj: Maybe dylan's a surfer?
Jj: I can do it.
Haley: You know, I actually kinda like this look on you.
Haley: Yeah. Yeah, it's no wonder I gave you my hand in marriage... dylan.
Jj: And I am diggin' on you, lily.
[Haley giggles] Hundo percent.
Eli: All right, you'll let me know if you hear anything, right? All right, you got my number. Cool. Bye.
Jennifer: Any word on jj?
Eli: I've been reaching out to some of his boarding school buddies. Some of them are exactly the type of shady people you'd reach out to if you were running from the law.
Jennifer: Eli, he doesn't run with that crowd anymore.
Eli: Doesn't mean he wouldn't reach out to 'em in a bind. You know anything about a guy named...rory?
Jennifer: Yes, unfortunately. But he's a total loser.
Eli: I got that from his rap sheet. Well, do you think jj would reach out to him?
Jennifer: No! No, I mean, he's--he's a drug dealer, among other things. He--
Eli: Take a look at this. Is that him?
Jennifer: I-I'm not sure.
Eli: Jen? Look, I know you don't want things to get worse for jj, but trust me, it would be a lot better if I brought in jj and haley before ice does.
Jennifer: That's rory.
Marlena: Thanks for the password, kayla. I'll let you know if john finds anything on the hospital security footage. Yeah, bye.
John: So kayla's on board?
Marlena: She will do anything to help will.
John: Yeah. I love that girl. All right, here you go. Put in the password. Okay. All right, let me download the footage here.
Marlena: Do you think we're going to find anything?
John: Rolf's diary was last seen in seth burn's office. This footage is gonna show us everybody who came and went from there.
Marlena: Oh. Seth is a very busy man. I think a lot of people come and leave his office.
John: Yeah, but I kind of narrowed down the window to a six-month time frame from last summer when the fda confiscated the drug to this january when jack showed up in salem.
[Beep] All right. Let's have a look.
Eve: Why am I fixated on ben? You really have to ask me that? That guy murdered my daughter and got away with it, jack.
Jack: I'm sympathetic with that. But there's a time for everything.
Eve: Well, I'm just supposed to be okay with him roaming the streets free? What--
Jack: The reason that you and I won this election is because of my stance on immigration. We have to show our constituents that I can follow through on a campaign promise.
Eve: Jack, I wanna find haley just as much as you do, but I've got a lot to prove here as the commissioner now. I mean, people are comparing me to hope. They're waiting for me to fail.
Jack: I know you can do this.
Eve: Well, then let me do my job.
Jack: It's not gonna be easy.
Eve: I know it's not gonna be easy. Hell, he's already beaten the raps on those murders by convincing the shrinks that he was insane.
Jack: So? How are you gonna get him?
Eve: Well, I still have a loose end out there that I can use to bring him down.
Jack: What do you mean, "use to bring him down"? Eve...you're not gonna frame him, are you?
Ciara: Okay. Looks pretty good. This oughta hold till it dries.
Ben: Good work.
Ciara: Thank you.
Ben: Wow. You actually may have saved claire's life.
Ben: [Small laugh] Knowing how much these things matter to maggie, I wouldn't be surprised if she's at your mom's office right now filing charges.
Ciara: Ha. Actually, um, my mom isn't the police commissioner anymore.
Ciara: Yeah. She got fired by the mayor.
Ben: Wait, wait--what? Jack deveraux fired her?
Ciara: To, uh, replace her with his new wifey, eve.
[Scoffs] Eve is the one person who hates my guts more than your mother.
Ciara: We convinced my mother of your innocence.
Ciara: I'm sure we can do the same thing with eve.
Ben: Ciara, there's no--
Ciara: Ben, it's gonna be okay.
[Sighs] Oh, no.
Ciara: [Sighs] Man, I guess i used a little too much glue. Yeah, look--maggie's definitely gonna notice the excess spilling over the side. Oh...okay, let me see what I can do about this. Mm...
Ciara: Claire is so gonna owe me for cleaning--
Ben: What is that smell? It'S... it's familiar.
Claire: Look, I know I've given you a lot of reasons not to believe me and not to trust me, but I do wanna help jj and haley.
Tripp: I've been looking for this. Must have fell on the pile--
[Sniffs] That smells weird.
Claire: Uh...it's a dirty sock.
Tripp: No, like something... something chemical.
[Sniffs] What is that?
Claire: Ignore this.
Claire: I have a confession to make. Things are bad.
Jack: Weston's guilty, right? He set the fire. You're just trying to prove it.
Eve: Ben's a killer. He was hope's prime suspect.
Jack: You didn't answer my question. This is a partnership, eve.
Eve: I know that, jack.
Jack: Then there can be no secrets between us. I am more than willing to do what needs to be done to take down this monster. But I have to know what it is we're doing. If you trust me, you will tell me the truth.
Eve: All right. The truth is... ben didn't torch that cabin. But I do know who did.
Claire: So I spilled a bottle of nail polish remover on a pile of your clothes. And that is why I did your laundry. Must have missed that one sock. My bad.
Tripp: Why didn't you mention this earlier?
Claire: I was embarrassed.
Tripp: For spilling something? Who cares?
Claire: Well, I guess I, um, I wanted to get the credit for doing your laundry without having to admit that, um, I was the one who messed up your clothes in the first place.
Tripp: How did you spill the nail polish remover?
Claire: I don't know. Um...I-I've been really tense, shaky lately, um... I even dropped some of maggie's figurines at the mansion. I'm sorry.
Tripp: Well, look, I'M... I'm still a long way from getting over what you did. But kayla helped me see that I'm not so innocent myself.
Tripp: What I asked from you wasn't fair... expecting you to give up years of your life, sneaking around, unable to have a relationship in public.
Claire: Mm-hmm. Thank you. Thank you for saying that.
Tripp: Anyone would have had a hard time dealing with that.
Claire: Wait, tripp... are you saying that you might be able to find a way to forgive me?
Ben: It smells strong.
Ciara: It's just nail polish remover. I'm trying to get rid of this excess glue.
Ben: That's strange.
Ciara: What is?
Ben: I went over to the loft to pick up your spare charger. I smelled the same thing.
Ciara: Claire was probably just using it to do her nails or something.
Ben: Yeah. But then I asked her about it, and she said she didn't smell anything and, I mean, the stuff's pretty intense.
Ciara: [Chuckles] Believe it or not, if you use this stuff enough, you kinda get used to it. You barely even notice the smell after a while.
Ben: Okay. It's also pretty flammable.
Ciara: Yeah, I guess. Why?
Ben: When I walked in, I saw tripp's pile of clothes on the ground. I made a joke to claire about her torching them. She pretty much bit my head off.
Ben: Why'd she get so upset?
Ciara: Ben, what exactly are you suggesting?
Jj: How do they look?
Rory: Perfecto. Just like I said they would. Um...I'll be there in a few hours or so.
Jj: You aren't driving, are you?
Rory: What, you think I'm taking my private jet?
Jj: No, it just... sounds like you're a little messed up, so...
Rory: Chill, bro. I'm walking to the ferry.
Jj: Okay. I'll see you soon.
Rory: Excuse you.
Eli: Hey, wait, wait, wait. You're rory, right?
Rory: Who's asking?
Eli: Detective eli grant. Salem P.D. Yeah, you're a friend of jj deveraux.
Rory: I wouldn't say that we're friends.
Eli: Well, I was just wondering if you'd heard from him.
Rory: How'd you find me?
Eli: Wasn't hard. I mean, you spend a lotta time around here, don't you?
Rory: Yeah, well... I haven't heard from jj in years. Once he became a cop, he didn't have any time for his old pals. So...
Eli: Hey, hey, co-- come on back. You mind if I take a look through your backpack?
Rory: What is this? Stop and frisk?
Eli: Hey, look, I'm not frisking you, man. Just asked for a little cooperation. Shouldn't be a problem if you have nothing to hide, right?
Rory: Well, I have a problem if you don't have probable cause.
Eli: [Sniffs] You smell that?
[Rory sniffing] Damn! I smell cannabis! Last time I checked, that was probable cause.
Rory: Ha. You're going to bust me for smelling like weed.
Eli: Here's the dope. You can cooperate or you can give me a hard time. It's up to you.
Rory: Yeah, well, uh... you know, I'm kind of in a hurry, so...go for it. But I want you to write down that I cooperated.
Eli: Sure thing.
Well, well, well. What do we have here?
Rory: [Scoffs] Come on, man. You know that's no big deal.
Eli: Still a crime. And not the first one you've committed.
Rory: Great. Well, can you just write me my ticket or whatever? I have things to do, places to go.
Eli: Yeah, you sure do. Starting with the salem police department.
Rory: You're going to bring me in for this? Seriously, bro.
Rory: Is there anything I can do to get out of this?
Eli: [Laughs] No, afraid not.
Rory: Okay, well... fine, let's go then. But just for the record, this is totally bogus.
Eli: I'll make sure I write that down too.
John: Take a look at this. Seth burns leaves his office at 5:06 P.M. There he goes.
John: All right, let me fast-forward ten minutes. 5:08. Office totally empty... and someone walks in.
Marlena: Can't tell who it is.
John: Stay with me here. I'm gonna fast-forward three more minutes. 5:11... and our mystery person exits the office... and she's so kind to turn around and face the camera. Let me zoom in.
Marlena: Eve donovan. Whew...
Jack: If you know who set the fire in that cabin, you need to bring them in.
Eve: Well, the person who set that fire doesn't deserve to suffer, jack. Ben weston does.
Jack: Except that he didn't do it.
Eve: Oh, my god, he killed three people! What did we preach out there on the campaign? To be tough on crime. What demonstrates that better than getting a serial killer off our streets?
Jack: I need to know who set that fire.
Eve: Well, I don't think you do--in fact, I think it's better if you don'T. Trust me, this is gonna be a win for you, all right? Look... I need this. I need it for my daughter. And I need it for myself. I have got to have some kind of closure here.
Jack: All right. Go ahead... fry him.
Eve: I intend to.
Ben: I wasn't even serious when I asked claire if she was going to torch tripp's clothes. But what if she was?
Ciara: Okay. I'd say that's a little bit much, even for claire.
Ben: I also asked her about that lighter... the one that you said looked like mine. She said she didn't have it anymore. She got all defensive about that, too.
Ben: So what if it was my lighter, ciara? I didn't have it after the fire.
Ciara: Okay. I don't think you're just talking about tripp's laundry anymore.
Ben: No, I'm not.
Ciara: Okay, so what exactly are you saying?
Ben: I've seen some really weird behavior from claire going all the way back to when she tried getting me to, you know, break up you and tripp.
Ciara: Yeah, and she apologized for that.
Ben: And she was also really obsessed with keeping you away from tripp.
Ciara: I know that.
Ben: I spent months thinking about this cabin fire... trying to prove my innocence, trying to figure out who the hell would want to do this to you? And after all this time, it's still unsolved. What if the answer was right in front of us this whole time?
Ben: Look, I know this sounds crazy, but is it possible that claire was the one who set that fire that almost killed you? I wanted more from
Rory: So am I under arrest or what?
Eli: Not yet, bro. But I do have some questions.
Rory: I don't answer any questions until I talk with my lawyer.
Eli: Tell your lawyer I said hi. I'll be right outside.
Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, detective grant. Have you found jj yet?
Jack: You must have some leads.
Eli: Jack, it's an ongoing investigation.
Jack: Yes, and I'm the mayor. So... who's in that room?
Eli: It's an old friend of jj'S. He's on the phone with his attorney. Excuse me.
Jj: I thought you were on your way.
Rory: I thought so too, until I got busted by the cops.
Jj: No! Did they find the passports?
Rory: What am I, an amateur? No, I managed to ditch them before they hauled me in-- on a B.S. Charge, too. You know half the country's already legalized weed, so for them to--
Jj: Rory, focus! Tell me where the passports are.
Rory: I put them behind a tree in the park behind the town square. The one that we always used to hang out in.
Jj: You left them behind a tree?
Rory: It was the only way i could get rid of them. Listen, man, I could be stuck in here for a while. Better get somebody else to go grab that envelope before the cops do.
Tripp: Look, I know I've put you through a lot.
Claire: Come on, I know, but I-I don't care about any of that, okay? Look, I just... all I want right now is another chance.
Tripp: Look, I don'T... I don't know when or-- if ever-- I'll be able to really forgive you for what you did.
Claire: Oh. Oh, okay.
Tripp: But I do know that at least this is partly my fault. So...I can promise you this, claire, um... I'll try.
Claire: That is all I could ever ask.
Ciara: How could claire have set the fire in the cabin, ben? Only a psychopath would do that.
Ben: Right. Only a psychopath.
Ciara: Sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't mean that.
Ben: Look, you just got done telling me how out of control she was after tripp broke up with her, right?
Ciara: Yeah, well, it's a big leap from destroying figurines and killing someone.
Ben: All I know is that this arson case is still unsolved, ciara. I know I didn't do it. Jordan swore she didn't do it. Is it that much of a leap to think that crazy claire is capable of doing it?
Claire: You know what, if you'd be okay with it, um... maybe one of these nights...
[Phone rings] You and I could--
Tripp: I need to take this.
Claire: Oh. Okay. Yeah, no, that's fine, go ahead.
Tripp: I'll be in the hallway.
[Beep] Hi. Yeah, okay, hi. What do you want, eve?
Tripp: Okay, you want me to pick up your passports from the park?
Jj: I don't know what else to do. And rory's stuck at the station. Tripp, I can't have anyone else finding these.
Tripp: Okay. I'll pick 'em up and bring 'em up to you.
Jj: Thank you. And make sure no one is following you.
Tripp: Yeah. On it. So there you are with your depression
Eve: I'm gonna do what i promised, all right? I'm gonna get you off the hook for setting that fire, one way or the other.
Claire: Okay. So you're still gonna pin it on ben?
Eve: Yes. I need you to bring me the lighter that you used to set the fire, and I need it now.
Ciara: Claire may be impulsive and insecure, but she would never try to kill anyone, ben, especially me.
Ben: You sure about that?
Ciara: Yes! Look, we may have had our differences, but we always find a way to work things out. And she's not capable of murder--I know that.
Ben: I didn't think I was either. Look what I did.
Ciara: Yeah, but you were mentally ill, ben.
Ben: Well, maybe she is too.
Ciara: It wasn't claire.
Ben: Isn't it at least worth looking into?
Ciara: No, ben, it's not. Because you're wrong. And I'm done with this discussion.
Ben: Ciara, I really think we should talk--
Ciara: I'm gonna go give this to claire so that she can be the one to give it to maggie, okay?
[Edgy percussive music]
Jennifer: Okay. If rory won't talk to you, then maybe he'll talk to his old buddy's mom.
Eli: No way!
Jennifer: Just five minutes. That's all I need.
Eli: Jen, I'm not--
Jennifer: I have to find jj before eve and jack make this whole situation worse. Come on, eli, we're family. I'm your cousin.
Eli: Really? You're gonna use the family card on me.
Jennifer: Yeah, I'm gonna try. Is it working?
Eli: Fine. Just make it fast.
Jennifer: Okay. Okay. Hi, rory. Do you remember me?
Rory: [Scoffs] You just made my bad day even worse.
Haley: Nobody's coming here, jj.
Jj: I know. Just ready to get you outta here.
Haley: I'm so sorry your friend got arrested.
Jj: No. All I care about is getting you to safety.
Haley: But if--what if tripp gets caught picking up our passports and--
Jj: He won'T. He'll get them to us. And we'll be on our way.
Tripp: [Whispering] Oh, thank god. Okay. Where the hell are the passports?
Eve: Finally...you are gonna get exactly what you deserve.
[Knock on door]
John: Door's open. Got a second?
Eve: Well, actually, I'm dealing with a lot of confidential police work, so I'm extremely busy.
John: Mm. Big case?
Eve: Oh, lots of 'em. You wouldn't believe the mess hope left me.
John: Is that a fact?
Eve: Yeah. Got a lot of criminals out there that need to get exactly what they deserve.
John: Maybe you should start with yourself.
Ben: Dr. Evans, hi. I'm sorry to bother you after office hours. And I'm sure you're surprised to hear from me.
Marlena: I told you you could always reach out to me. Are you all right?
Ben: Actually, I'm not.
[Small laugh] I need your help.
Ciara: Whoa! Ha ha. Hey! Where's the fire?
Jennifer: I know you don't like me. And I don't like you either. But we both care about jj.
Rory: Is that your fake nice way of trying to get me to give you an interview for your paper? Because the answer is no way. I don't talk to the press.
Jennifer: I'm not here for an interview, and I am not here as a reporter. I am here as jj's mom.
Rory: Jj's mom who tried to ruin my life?
Jennifer: Rory, I need to find my son. He is in a lot of trouble, and things could get really bad. So I am begging you--if you know where he is, please tell me.
Jj: [Sighs] So, lily, how was your day?
Haley: It was good, dylan. Any day is a really good day when I get to come home to you.
Jj: And I'll always be there.
Haley: Thank you. For everything.
Jj: Is that...lily talking or haley?
Haley: It's both of us.
Jj: Hey... hang in there, okay? It's not gonna be long before we're walking across that border, ready to start our new lives together. Toronto, here we come.
Tripp: Could they have fallen out of the envelope? Where else could they be?
Jack: Looking for these?
