Jack: Lookin' for these?

Tripp: What are they?

Jack: U.S. Passports. For your wife haley and your cousin jj. I mean, they're wearing wigs and beards but it's them, obviously. You broke the law by marrying an illegal immigrant. Now you're gonna break it again by helping her escape deportation.

Tripp: [Small laugh] I have no idea what you're talking about.

Jack: Prison time, tripp. You heard me. But I'm the mayor. I can help you get out of this. But you'd have to tell me where haley and jj are.

Haley: [Laughs] Shouldn't we be practicing being lily and dylan?

Jj: We're gonna have the rest of our lives to be them. Right now, I just wanna be us. Show you... how much I care.

Xander: Holly jones's original autopsy report...the one that says she's not really dead. Glad I held on to that. Never know... when I'm gonna need some leverage to hold over kristen dimera's crazy head.

Eve: You calling the new police commissioner a criminal? Well, that's absurd. Now, if you're suggesting that jack and I stole this election--

John: No, I'm not here about jack--I'm here about a different creep.

Eve: Oh, yeah? Who's that?

John: Well, it would be dr. Rolf. His diary mysteriously disappeared from the hospital a couple months ago, and I think you stole it.

Ben: Stefan's not here, so we won't be interrupted.

Marlena: Well, I'm actually not sure why I'm here. You said you needed my help?

Ben: [Softly] Yeah. I need you to hypnotize me. Again. I have to remember everything that happened that night of the fire at the cabin.

Marlena: But there's nothing to suggest that you were responsible for the fire. Why would you be concerned?

Ciara: Whoa-ho!

Claire: Ciara! Hi!

Ciara: Hey! Where's the fire?

Claire: I was just on my way out.

Ciara: I actually have something for you--do you wanna go inside for a minute?

Claire: Oh, I'm actually running late right now, sorry.

Ciara: It'll only take a second--it really won't take long, I promise. Come on.

Claire: Okay.

Ciara: Okay.

[Uneasy music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ben: Now that eve deveraux is the new police commissioner, she's determined that I go down for torching that cabin. I was walking through the square, minding my own business. She steps in front of me, starts screaming and hitting me.

Marlena: Her daughter died at your hands.

Ben: Which, of course, is why she hates me. Why wouldn't she? My god, it was her only child. I told eve that I would be sorry for what I did for the rest of my life. But that actually doesn't even start to describe it... dr. Evans. It haunts me every day. It's gonna continue to haunt me for the rest of my life. I'd give my life right now if it meant bringing back those victims. If that were only possible. All I can do now is try and be a good person, try to do for others. Dr. Evans, I swear to god to you I will never hurt somebody ever again. And I did not set that fire at the cabin with ciara inside. You believe me, right?

Marlena: I know there's no proof that you set the fire.

Ben: Eve will find some. Somehow. The woman is determined to put me behind bars by any means necessary, I'm telling you.

Marlena: That would be an abuse of power. She can't convict you of a crime you didn't commit just because she wants revenge.

Ben: Did you see how she ran that campaign for mayor? The woman isn't concerned about right and wrong, dr. Evans.

Marlena: Yes, I see your point.

Ben: Look, the bottom line is the only way that I can protect myself is to figure out who the hell really set this fire.

Claire: Oh... oh, my god, maggie's figurine.

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

Claire: You fixed it.

Ciara: I told you I would. Not bad, right?

Claire: No!

[Giggles] No, it looks as good as new. Um... thank you. Thank you so much. You really did not have to do this.

Ciara: Oh, I wanted to. I mean, how many times did you cover for me when we were growing up? Maybe we didn't always get along, but...we always have each other's backs when it really counts.

Claire: Come here.

Ciara: Claire, is everything okay?

Tripp: I have no idea where jj and haley are. But how did you know where i was? Are you having me followed?

Jack: Not at all. I was down at the police station earlier when detective grant brought in jj's old pal rory for questioning.

Tripp: Never heard of him.

Jack: Well, he reeks of pot. He looks like someone you'd go to if you needed, uh, well, fake passports. Anyway, when I checked in with eli later I said, "what's going on?" He said rory was in the other room on the phone with his lawyer. I suspected otherwise.

[Tense music]

[Beep] So...I was right. Rory called jj and told him where he could find the passports he had to ditch when eli busted him. And then jj called you and asked you to pinch hit. So if you don't want to be the stoner's cellmate, you need to tell me right now where jj and haley ran off to.

Tripp: They wouldn't have had to run if you and eve hadn't outed haley as undocumented. You're probably never gonna see your son again, and that is your own damn fault.

Jack: All right, you had your chance. I'm gonna take you downtown. Come on! Oh!

[Intense music]

Eve: You think I stole rolf's diary? Based on what?

John: Well, like I said, a couple months ago, rolf's diary mysteriously disappeared out of seth burns' office. Do you know what I did? I pulled up the hospital security footage and I took a look at it, and on january 20th, you entered seth burns' office shortly after he left. You were alone in his office for...three full minutes. That's plenty of time to find that diary and steal it.

Eve: Hmm. Mighty big stretch there, mr. Private eye. And since when does being alone in an office make somebody a thief, hmm? And why would I want my hands on the mad scientist's diary anyway?

John: Well, maybe because you knew it contained a formula that could restore jack's memory, and that's the last thing you wanted. Jack remembers his past, he forgets all about you. All those years, all those memories come flooding back in and--bam! He hightails it right back to jennifer.

Tripp: Jennifer, where did you come from?

Jennifer: I was at the police station. I got rory to admit that he made fake passports for jj and haley. But the police took him away before I could find out where they are.

Tripp: Well, it's probably safer you don't know. But you really need to get out of here right now.

Jennifer: Wh--I can'T. I can't leave jack here like this.

[Jack groans]

Tripp: Okay, fine, you can take care of him, but I need to deliver these.

Jennifer: Please be careful. And tell jj to be careful and tell him that I love him.

Tripp: I will.

[Soft music]

Marlena: Ben, last time i hypnotized you, there was no indication that there was anybody else there.

Ben: I know. But if you put me under again, maybe I'll remember something new, you know, a-a clue about somebody or... any small detail could unlock this whole thing. Please... dr. Evans. My freedom's on the line here.

Marlena: All right. Let's try it.

Claire: You know, these past couple of weeks have been, um, really, really hard on me. 'Cause I finally thought that tripp and I were solid. And then just like that... you know, just like that, he's all about some other woman. And I...I just love him so much. And then for him to...

[Laughs] For him to dump me after everything that I put up with, I--

Ciara: I know. I know, I totally get it. You've been harboring so much inside, all the pain, guilt and anger... I mean, it had to come out sooner or later. That is why you smashed maggie's figurines, right?

Claire: What's your point?

Ciara: Well... my point is I just--I think that you've been going through a lot lately, and you shouldn't have to go through it alone. I mean, maybe it would help if you talked to your grandma marlena.

Claire: Oh, my god. That's exactly what tripp said to me. Yeah, that's--that's the real reason you're here right now, isn't it? He put you up to this. Because you both think I'm crazy! So there you are with your depression

Ciara: Of course I don't think you're crazy, claire. I just--

Claire: Mm-hmm.

Ciara: No, I'm concerned because it's obvious that you're devastated--

Claire: I'm upset! I'm dealing with a very bad breakup right now. But, um, I definitely don't need a shrink. All I need is for tripp to trust me again, and he will.

Ciara: You think?

Claire: Yeah. We actually talked about it. know, he's still obviously not over what I did to haley, but he did promise that he would try to forgive me, so... and over time, I know that I can win him back.

Ciara: I really hope that works out. But if you ever...feel overwhelmed or like you can't do this on your own, there are plenty of people in this town for you to talk to. Me and your grandma marlena.

Marlena: I want you to relax. Be aware of your breathing.

Ben: [Exhales]

Marlena: Every time you exhale... double your relaxation. Find any tension you've got in your body.

[Whispers] Let it go.

[Softly] Good. We're going back to the cabin now. I want you to look around. Ciara's there. Look for anybody else. Tell me what you see.

Ciara: Go refill your prescription before the drugstore closes, please, ben.

Ben: Okay.

[Uneasy music]

This isn't a trick, is it? You're not gonna call your mom when I'm gone?

Ciara: I told you that you can trust me, and I meant it. I'm not trying to get you in trouble. I'm gonna be right here when you get back--promise.

Marlena: So you hiked to the pharmacy to get your meds, and then you went back to the cabin.

Ben: Yes.

Marlena: Okay.

Ben: Ran through the woods as fast as I could to get back to ciara. It was dark. It was hard to navigate. But I made it.

Marlena: What did you see when you got there?

Ben: Couldn't believe it. The whole place was on fire. Rafe and hope were... helping ciara outside.

Marlena: Is that all you saw?

Ben: Yeah. That's it.

Marlena: Okay. I'm gonna count you out of it. When I get to one, you'll be wide awake... refreshed. You'll remember what we talked about. Three... two... one. Ben?

Ben: [Exhales] There's nothing new.

Marlena: No. Unfortunately not.

Ben: No. I'm missing something. I'm missing something. I know it. Could we do it again? Please, can we give it one more shot?

Marlena: You know, I kept asking you to remember what you saw. That's only one of your senses. Let's try something different.

Ben: Okay.


Jennifer: Jack. Jack, I need you to wake up! I mean it. Okay, hang on. I'm gonna call an ambulance.

Jack: [Groans] Ah...uhh...

Jennifer: Oh! Oh, thank god. Jack, are you okay?

Jack: Uhh! Loretta?

Jennifer: Are you okay?

Jack: No, I'm not okay. Someone bashed me on the head, and I'm assuming it was you.

Jennifer: You are assuming wrong. I was walking by, and I saw you lying on the ground, jack.

Jack: Oh, oh, oh, you didn't happen to see me talking to tripp, and you didn't think maybe I'll hit me on the head and it'll help tripp get away?

Jennifer: Absolutely...not! I promise.

Xander: Rubbish. She's lying through her pretty little teeth.

Eve: I've been jack's number one advocate ever since xander brought him to me. You know what? I brought him back here to salem. I brought him home. Now, if I was really concerned that he was gonna reconnect with his family, why would I do that?

John: Maybe because you couldn't resist sticking it to jennifer. Come on, eve. You blame her for blowing up everything you had with brady. What better way to retaliate than becoming mrs. Jack "deveraux", first lady of salem?

Eve: Well, it's called "ambition."

John: Mm-hmm.

Eve: Mm-hmm.

John: And you almost had it all...power, prestige, revenge. Except one thing--that damn diary was floating around out there somewhere, threatening to blow up everything. No, you couldn't let someone else get their hands on that formula. If they replicated the serum and gave it to jack... you stole that diary to keep that from happening. Now, give it up.

Eve: I don't have it.

John: I don't believe you.

[Soft music]

Jj: I'm sorry if... if you're not ready.

Haley: No, no, no, no. It's--no, it's not that, I-- I want you so badly, but... it's just that tripp'll be here any minute with our new passports and I don't--I--


Jj: No, it would... it would be a little awkward if he showed up.

Haley: [Whispers] Yeah.

Jj: Um... I'd still like to hold you if... that's okay.

Haley: It's more than okay.

Jack: Xander! How long have you been here?

Xander: Oh, long enough to see the whole thing, jackie. You were getting into it with that kid when jenny came up behind you and whacked you in the noggin and told the kid to take off.

Jack: Where's tripp?

Jennifer: I have no idea, and now that you are fine, I need to get out of here. What are you doing?

Xander: I'm making a citizen's arrest. You just assaulted the mayor of salem.

Jennifer: Get your hands off of me. Jack, will you tell this animal to get his hands off of me? For god's sake, I'm the mother of your children!

Jack: I made a promise to restore law and order to this town. It's an obligation I plan to keep. So I'm taking you downtown. Xander, if you will do the honors.

Jennifer: What?

Eve: I don't give a damn whether you believe me or not. I'm telling the truth. I don't have the diary.

John: What were you doing in burns' office then? You don't strike me as the kind of person that takes meetings with hospital bigwigs.

Eve: Well, I would have to think back on that, 'cause it was a while ago, but...oh, yeah. I went to burns' office 'cause i wanted to talk to him about setting up A...a fellowship... on behalf of my daughter's memory.

John: That's very generous.

Eve: Mm-hmm.

John: Feel-good story like that, you'd think the local media would be all over it. Funny, I hadn't heard a word.

Eve: Well, you know, I waited in the office for him. He never showed up, so I had to leave, and then the campaign started and I didn't have time to follow up. I--w-why are you interested in this damned diary anyway, huh?

John: Because will has a brain tumor... and we feel it's dr. Rolf's serum that caused it.

Eve: I'm sorry to hear that. I had not...heard that.

John: The tumor, it's not responding to traditional medicine. He's getting worse by the day. So at this point, our only hope is to replicate that serum so the doctors can find a cure. But without the formula, it's impossible. So to get back to your question, finding that diary... it's a matter of life and death. - Just like any other family

Jj: Tripp should have been here by now.

Haley: What if he got caught? What if he got caught or somebody followed him and--and he had to turn back?

Jj: Look, I-I-I don't know, but...we need those passports. We might have to come up with a plan B.

Haley: [Softly] Plan b?

[Rapid knocking on door]

Jj: That--that must be him.

Tripp: Hey.

Haley: Oh, tripp! Tripp, you made it.

Jj: We were starting to think something went wrong.

Tripp: kinda did.

Jennifer: Let go of me!

Eli: What in the hell?

Jennifer: Seriously--keep your hands off me.

Xander: This woman assaulted the mayor. As you can see, she's still quite agitated.

Eli: Well, hold on. Jennifer, what happened?

Jack: Xander told you. I was about to bring in tripp dalton while he was en route to delivering fake passports to haley and jj. Then suddenly, I was on the ground... knocked out by jennifer. Thank you very much. When I came to, tripp was gone, and so were the fake passports.

Eli: That true?

Xander: Every word.

Eli: I wasn't asking you.

Jennifer: Do you really expect me to answer that?

Jack: All right. Book her. And then find out if she knows where my son and the illegal immigrant are hiding.

Jennifer: I hope they're long gone by now!

Haley: I hope your mom doesn't get in trouble and that your dad isn't hurt.

Jj: Well, he has a pretty hard head. Goes with his heart.

Tripp: Yeah, jack or eve. I don't know which one's worse.

Jj: They deserve each other. I still can't believe eve secretly recorded you and claire.

Tripp: Yeah, look, there's something I need to tell you guys. Um... eve isn't the one that was behind the recording that got haley deported.

Haley: Wait--what, she--she wasn't?

Tripp: No. It was all claire.

Claire: Have you heard anything about jj and haley?

Ciara: Nope. Now that my mother is no longer the police commissioner, I don't get the inside scoop.

Claire: I'm sorry. I'm sorry she got fired.

Ciara: I still can't believe eve took her job. And eve has been all over ben lately, like we were at the town square, and out of nowhere, she attacked him, telling him that she's gonna make him pay for what he did to paige.

Claire: Really?

Ciara: Yeah. I mean, and the cops can't just go after ben. But then again, it's a mistake to underestimate eve.

Claire: What do you think she would do?

Ciara: Whatever it takes to hurt ben.

Marlena: You're doing great. Stay focused. Just...tell me where you are right now.

[Tense chords]

Ben: On my way to the pharmacy.

[Rustling walking sounds]

Marlena: And ciara's back at the cabin.

Ben: Yes.

[Rustling sounds continue]

Marlena: How do you feel about leaving her there?

[Walking sounds continue]

Ben: Super paranoid. I ran out of my meds.

[Walking sounds continue] I can hear voices telling me it's a trap.

[Overlapping whispering] But ciara's all alone with a broken leg. Gotta keep going.

[Walking sounds continue] I gotta get my head on straight so I can help her.

[Walking sounds, panting breath]

Marlena: Okay. Well, you've got your meds now. Now how do you feel?

[Walking sounds continue]

Ben: Relieved. I'm on my way back to the cabin. My meds... I feel them kicking in...

[Echoing] Kicking in...

Marlena: On the way back, how did it feel? Was it cold, was it warm?

Ben: Warm.

[Echoing] Warm... summer.

[Echoing] Summer...

Marlena: Was...was there a breeze?

Ben: Yeah.

[Echoing] Yeah...

[Rustling] I hear the leaves rustling. An owl...

[Bird calls] I think.

[Walking sounds continue]

[Owl hooting] Smell smoke.

Marlena: So you must be close to the cabin.

Ben: Very close.

[Echoing] Close...

[Flames crackling] It's weird...

[Echoing] Weird...

[Crackling] I hear music.

[Tune plays distantly]

Marlena: Music. Are you sure?

[Crackling continues]

[Distant jingle]

Ben: Not a whole song...

[Echoing] just... just...just... a few notes...

[Echoing] Notes...notes...

Marlena: Do you hear anything else?

[Flames crackling]

Ben: Rafe...

[Echoing] Rafe...rafe... and hope with ciara.

[Ciara screaming]

[Distant commotion]

[High-pitched scream] The music's gone...

[Echoing] Gone...

Marlena: Okay. That's good, ben. That's really good. I'm gonna bring you out of it now. You'll remember everything we talked about. Hi, I'm dave. I supply 100% farm-fresh milk for lactaid.

Xander: Lucky for you I saw what happened. Came along just in time to give you a helping hand.

Jack: Thanks.

Xander: Oh, we're all pals, right?

Jack: [Chuckles] Yeah. I've such fond memories of you selling me to eve after that fire in nashville.

Xander: I tend to think of it more as...matchmaking. I mean, after all, you guys found true love, and now you're married and running this town. You owe me one, mr. Mayor.

Jack: Oh, really? If I owe anyone anything, it's eve. Everybody here--everyone--they all want me to be someone i don't even remember. But eve...she loves me for who i am now. She supports me and she encourages me. I don't know where I'd be without her.

Xander: [Laughs] Probably back with your ex-wife.

John: We've already lost will once. We have to go through all of this again, when there's a chance that we could save him... he's got his whole life ahead of him. Got a beautiful daughter. He's got a great partner here. He's just too young to die.

Eve: That is exactly how i felt when ben weston took my daughter from me. No parent should ever have to bury their child.

John: No. Look... I understand that you had play hardball for this campaign here. Win-at-all-costs and all that-- I get it, and you did, and you won and you have the power now. But let me just tell you this. There's nothing more powerful in the world than being able to help someone in desperate need, and that would be will right now.

Eve: I wish I could.

John: You know what kind of pain's coming if you don'T. You know better than anybody. I can't believe you would wish that on anybody, so if you have any idea where that diary is, we would all be very grateful if you would speak up now before it's too late.

[Tense music]

Eve: [Sighs] Ohh...

Jj: You're telling me that claire recorded you on her own and then gave it to eve?

Tripp: Yeah. She wanted to get rid of haley but not lose me.

Haley: [Sighs] And that's why eve wanted me to come forward on my own. Protecting tripp was probably a condition of claire'S.

Tripp: Mm-hmm.

Jj: Just when I think claire is done with this crap, she proves me wrong.

Tripp: Yeah, claire swears she's sorry, she's desperate to make it up to me. She says she'll do anything to help you guys, even get an advance on her trust fund from victor.

Jj: Well, tripp, she's two-faced. Why would any of us believe a word she says?

Claire: Well, whatever eve does, or tries to do, you know, at least ben has you in his corner now. How are things between you two?

Ciara: Really good.

Claire: Good.

Ciara: It, like, blows my mind to think of how scared I was of him after he found me after my motorcycle crash and took me back to the cabin. And now I see what a kind, amazing, amazing, caring, gentle person he is.

Claire: I'm really happy for you guys.

Ciara: Thank you.

Claire: And thank you for fixing the figurine.

Ciara: Oh...[Laughs] Yeah, no problem. You wanna know what else blows my mind?

Claire: What?

Ciara: To think about how we used to fight all the time about tripp and theo. I mean, we really could have killed each other. Thank god we put all that behind us.

Claire: Yeah. Yeah.

Marlena: Tell me some more about the music.

Ben: I don't know. It was just like... a few notes. Like...


I-I don't know. I played ciara some music on my phone one night at the cabin. But I had my phone on me. And once that fire started, there's no way that ciara would be able to play music. I mean...I-I don't know. I can't explain it. I just know what I heard.

Marlena: I believe you. But it doesn't prove that there was somebody else there.

Ben: [Sighs] Right. I understand. Thank you for helping me, as always.

Marlena: You stay in touch.

[Soft, unsettling music]

[Tune from hypnosis plays]

Jack: So?

Eli: Jennifer doesn't know where tripp is.

Jack: Of course, she'd say that. But tripp's probably already delivered those fake passports to haley and jj!

Eli: Well, I can check the security footage at the square, but I'm sure tripp's long gone by now.

Jack: What about rory, the original delivery man?

Eli: He's in a cell under strict orders from his lawyer to keep his mouth shut.

Jj: You know what, there's no point in trashing claire. We're never gonna see her again once we get to canada.

Tripp: Yeah, well, no one's going anywhere tonight. I got here so late, we missed the last ferry.

Haley: I-it's fine. We--we can totally stay another night, right?

Jj: No one's found us so far, so... let's just hope our luck holds out.

[Tune from hypnosis plays, unclear]

[Tune from hypnosis plays clearly]


Claire: Hello.

Eve: Where the hell are you? I thought you were gonna bring me the lighter.

Claire: Yes, I'm sorry. I got held up. I'm leaving right now, okay?

Eve: Well, then just hang on to it for the time being. I've got enough to worry about right now.

Jack: Despite my pounding headache, I'm willing to let you walk outta here if you'll tell me where jj and haley are.

Jennifer: I can't do that.

Jack: Can'T... or won't?

Jennifer: Does it matter, jack? It's your fault that our son is a fugitive.

Jack: All I'm trying to do is bring our son home. But if you won't help... so be it. Enjoy spending the night in jail.

Jennifer: I would rather... be in jail than anywhere near you.

Jack: Suit yourself.

[Knock on door]

Xander: Wow... you, the new commissioner. Pffft. It's like having a get-out-of-jail free card.

Eve: Mmm. Don't count on it. But I am glad you're here, 'cause I wanted to talk to you.

Xander: Oh, to thank me for helping your new hubby after his ex-wife assaulted him?

Eve: What?

Xander: Oh, relax. He's fine, and jenny's probably stewing in a cell by now.

Eve: Ha. Well, good! But that's not why I wanna talk to you. You have something that I need.

Xander: Oh. Well, you know I'm happy to oblige, but you could at least buy me a drink first.

Eve: I'm serious, xander. I need you to give me back rolf's diary--now.
