Kayla: Do you have a minute?

Marlena: For you? Always.

Kayla: I just heard from Steve, and he said that he and John just landed in Philadelphia little while ago.

Marlena: Oh. Thanks for the update. Come, join me.

Kayla: Thank you. Listen, I know how concerned you are about John's issues since his aneurysm. And I just want you to know that I feel terrible that Steve is taking him on this wild goose chase. I mean, the idea that they're gonna confront some mob boss and get him to exonerate Tripp... I just wonder what Steve is thinking.

Steve: Angelo Vitali. Long time no see.

Angelo: You're interrupting my lunch.

John: Well, that's about to be the least of your problems.

[Foreboding music]

Roman: What the hell are you doing?

Allie: Um, so I'll catch you guys later.

Charlie: Arrivederci.

Claire: [Laughs] Allie, are you okay? What is it, what's wrong?

Abigail: You made it up. Why would you do that?

Chad: Why would you tell me that you saw Abigail kissing Jake if it wasn't true? If I'd known it was a lie...

Abigail: If you'd know, it was a lie, what? Finish your sentence. If you'd known it was a lie, what would you have done? Or what would you have not done?

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "Days of our Lives."

[Soft orchestration]

Kayla: It's all so crazy. When Steve asked me if it was possible that the DNA test could very well prove that a close relative of Tripp's was the rapist, I told him that the odds were incredibly slim.

Marlena: Well, our husbands have never been ones to back off from a long shot.

Kayla: I'm just afraid that Steve is so desperate for Tripp to be innocent that he's just grabbing at whatever straw he can find.

Marlena: You know, Tripp has always maintained his innocence. He's never wavered; he's never changed his story. Neither has Allie, for that matter. So, hopefully our husbands can do their investigation and get to the truth.

Angelo: You want to tell your friend to back off?

Steve: It's all right, John.

John: No, it's not. We came a long way to get some answers, Vitali. And we're gonna leave until we get them.

Angelo: Well, I'd be happy to accommodate you gentlemen, but I haven't heard the question yet.

John: Well, here it is, wise guy. Did you rape my granddaughter?

[Tense music]

Allie: Yeah, I'm fine. I'm just late for my appointment, so I gotta go.

Claire: Hey, are you sure you're okay?

Allie: Yes. Fine. All good. Really. I will see you later.

Claire: Bye. What was that all about?

Abigail: Chad?

Chad: If I had known it was a lie, then I wouldn't have gotten drunk and passed out and spent the night at the Salem Inn.

Abigail: Well, that's why I have a bill for a room at the Salem Inn that I didn't book. And where did you stay last night? Because I know you didn't come home either.

Gwen: I was with Chad.

Abigail: You spent the night with my husband?

[Tense music]

Angelo: Rape your granddaughter? What the hell are you talking about? What is he talking about?

John: She was attacked in her flat in London last December. I want to know if you're the son of a bitch who did it.

Angelo: You know, look. My blood sugar is real low. So, you might want to call off your attack dog before, you know, things get exciting.

John: It's two against one, Pal. You'll want to answer the damn question.

Angelo: What is this Jamook's problem?

Steve: His granddaughter's name is Allie Horton. Ring any bells?

Angelo: You know, I was in London once. Bells were ringing all right. Big Ben, Westminster Abbey. All the time. You know, there might have even been some fireworks. But not with a girl named Allie. Not with a girl at all. So why don't you take this Babbo and leave me in peace.

Steve: All right. Here's the thing, Ang. Allie had a baby nine months later. Lo and behold, his DNA and yours, it's a match.

Angelo: What the--? [Chuckles] That's impossible. And how would you know?

Steve: We ran the test on your cousin Tripp.

Angelo: And why would you do that?

Steve: Because Allie claims Tripp is the one who attacked her.

Angelo: Well, that doesn't sound like something he'd do.

Steve: Exactly.

Angelo: [Sighs] But if this Allie says he did it and his DNA is a match, looks like you got your answer, so off you go.

Steve: Tripp didn't do it.

Angelo: Oh. Right, right. Daddy's boy can do no wrong.

Steve: Tripp swore he didn't do it. And it turns out, a blood relative could produce the same DNA test results. And that would be you.

John: So why don't we try this one more time? When exactly were you in London?

Kayla: Listen to me, I sound so negative. Of course, I want Tripp to be innocent.

Marlena: You had quite a history.

Kayla: Yeah. Allie came a long way. Our relationship really was great. And now since all this happened, I just find myself-- whenever I give him the benefit of the doubt, I regret it.

Marlena: And you end up doubting him? And feeling concerned and confused yourself.

Kayla: All of the above. And the toll that it's taken on my relationship with Steve. And the fact that Ava literally rose from the grave. And then Joey coming back from prison and being home and then turning around and leaving town and moving in with Stephanie. And I tell you, I don't even know what's up. I need to make an appointment and come right back to this chair and talk it out.

Marlena: [Laughs] My friend, you are welcome any time. Any time at all. I just think that what you're feeling is natural. Given what you're going through--Ava. Ava? Oh, my goodness. All the havoc she has brought into your life. And then here she is. But the really good news is now your son is free. I'm so happy for you and your family.

Kayla: It really is a miracle. And I don't discount that for one second. Which is why I find it really impossible that Ava would be missing.

Marlena: What does that mean?

Kayla: She finally is reunited with her own son. She was so excited that Tripp was moving in with her. And then for her to disappear without a word?

Marlena: Does anybody know what happened?

Kayla: No. It is like Ava vanished from the face of the earth.

Tripp: My mom is missing. I'm just trying to find her.

Roman: This is private property. You can't post it without my permission.

Tripp: Okay, so may I have your permission?

Roman: No, you may not.

Tripp: Why not? I saw a flyer for a missing turtle in your window a few weeks ago.

Roman: Turtle deserved to be found. Your mother doesn't. And the best thing for this town would be for Ava Viteli to take off to God knows where and never come back. And I would hope to hell her son would follow.

Charlie: Maybe Allie just had someplace to be.

Claire: Yeah. She did say she had an appointment.

Charlie: There, you see? I'm sure that's all it was.

Claire: I guess. It's just she was--she was fine, totally fine. And then you showed up, and...

Charlie: And here I was hoping that you would notice the awesome Christmas shirt somebody got me.

Claire: Wow.

Charlie: Yeah.

Claire: I do have good taste. In shirts and men.


Charlie: I'm really glad you came to my apartment on Christmas.

Claire: I had to check that you were okay. And I wanted to give you your Christmas present. Although, you still owe me the grand tour.

Charlie: I do. I absolutely still owe you the grand tour. [Chuckles] But this is nice. Being here with you.

Claire: Yeah. So, it's cool that I called you to meet up?

Charlie: Yeah.

Claire: [Sighs] I'm so glad. I was kind of worried that you might've been avoiding me.

Charlie: Never.

Claire: [Chuckles] Well, Allie was right then.

Charlie: About what?

Claire: She said I should get over myself and call you. And now here you are.

Charlie: No place I'd rather be.

Claire: [Giggles]

Gwen: Are you asking me if I slept with your husband?

Abigail: Did you?

Chad: Abigail.

Abigail: Let her answer the question.

Gwen: I did spend the night with Chad. But the man was a drunk and blubbering mess. I couldn't just leave him face down in his own bottle of booze. So, I slept in a chair.

Abigail: Mm. So, you saved the day is what you're telling me?

Gwen: Would you rather if I left him alone?

Abigail: I would rather that you didn't lie to him and tell him that you saw me and Jake kissing which you still haven't explained.

Gwen: Because you haven't given me a chance, have you?

Abigail: Well, here it is. I'm all ears. And while you're at it, why don't you explain why you lied about me booking a room at the Salem Inn? And, you know, if you got anything else you want to get off your chest, I think right now would be a really good time to do it. What's the matter, don't you know where to start?

Gwen: Fine. Yes, I'll tell you everything. But you might be sorry that you asked.

Kayla: I know how worried Tripp is about his mother. But I pray to God that Ava Vitali doesn't show her face in this town again. All right, I'm officially a terrible person.


Marlena: You're not a terrible person. Ava is the terrible person. And as for Tripp, let's just reserve judgment until we hear from John and Steve.

Kayla: I admire your generosity and spirit towards Tripp. Given how Allie has suffered I- [Knocking at door] Come in. Sorry.

Allie: Grandma. Aunt Kayla. Am I interrupting something?

Marlena: We were just talking about a patient.

Kayla: But we're done. We're done with that. It's good to see you. How are you?

Allie: I'm okay.

Kayla: And how's Henry?

Allie: He's good, thanks.

Kayla: Well, give him a lot of kisses from me, okay?

Allie: Yeah, I will.

Kayla: All right. I'm going to take your advice, all right? Thank you.

Marlena: Good, thank you. Do you want to sit?

Allie: Yeah. Sorry I'm late, I just kind of lost track of time.

Marlena: You okay?

Allie: [Sighs] I don't know. I was having lunch with Claire and everything was fine and then all of a sudden, I just started thinking about that night, out of nowhere.

Marlena: Well, of course that happens. Were you triggered somehow?

Allie: [Sighs heavily] I mean her new boyfriend joined us.

Marlena: Charlie?

Allie: Yeah. I mean, could he be the trigger? He's practically a stranger. That doesn't make sense, does it?

Charlie: So, you hungry? You want to grab lunch?

Claire: I already ate with Allie. But if you want something?

Charlie: Actually, I already ate too. [Laughs] But mine was much less fun. I just grabbed something while I finished this project I've been working on.

Claire: Is your project done?

Charlie: Almost. And I can't wait to be finished. Because then, I will have much more time to spend with you.

Claire: I would like that.

Charlie: I have time now. What do you want to do?

Claire: I honestly do not care. As long as I'm spending time with you.

Angelo: You want answers? Step out of my personal space.

[Tense music]

Angelo: That's better. For your information, I don't remember exactly when I was in London, but I do know I never raped anyone.

Steve: So, you don't know anything about what happened that night?

Angelo: How could I when I wasn't there? So why don't you fill me in?

Steve: Tripp took Allie home from a nightclub because she had too much to drink.

Angelo: So, your boy was at the scene of the crime.

Steve: Tripp got her into bed like a perfect gentleman and then he took off.

John: Maybe you slipped in after he left.

Angelo: Why would I do that?

Steve: Maybe you followed Tripp there.

Angelo: And why would I do that?

Steve: I don't know how your screwed-up mind works. But I do know you tried to convince Tripp to murder my wife.

Angelo: I thought she killed my favorite cousin.

Steve: You were wrong.

Angelo: Well hey, so it turned out to be your son. I was in the ballpark.

John: Nobody murdered Ava. She's alive.

Angelo: Yeah, well, she's got nine lives, that one. Okay? And so, Joey, he got sprung from the joint, so everything's good.

Steve: Who told you about Joe?

Angelo: Who do you think? Ava. She's still my favorite cousin.

Steve: So, then you must know she's missing?

Angelo: Missing? Wait. What happened?

Steve: First, you tell us when you were in London.

Angelo: It wasn't in December. I was in the joint. Waynesburg, Pennsylvania.

John: Why don't we try this again? I checked your record.

Angelo: It's not on my record. They held me for two months on bogus charges and eventually they had to let me go.

John: You are so full of it.

Angelo: You don't believe me? You call the prison. They can verify every word.

Abigail: The only person who's gonna be sorry is you if you don't tell me the truth.

Gwen: A few weeks ago, I saw Jake kissing Kate.

Abigail: That doesn't have anything to do with Chad and me.

Gwen: I am getting to that part, Abigail, if you'd let me finish please. Jake was furious that I'd found out about his affair. And he told me that Kate was scared that Chad would find out the truth. So, Jake threatened me. Told me I'd be sorry if I said anything. I was terrified.

Abigail: Hm, okay. So, you were terrified of Jake, huh? Really.

Gwen: Have you forgotten that he was in the mob? I had to check myself into Bayview to hide from him. Yes, I genuinely feared for my life.

Abigail: Okay, let's just-- we're gonna fast-forward to the part where you're trying to ruin my life.

Gwen: I never intended for that, Abigail. But when Chad had heard that Jake was sleeping with someone in the house, he came to me and he asked me about it, and so I panicked.

Abigail: Which is really weird, because you're not really the type to panic.

Gwen: I thought that Jake would kill me if I said the truth.

Abigail: Okay, so then you go and you get some brilliant idea that you'll just say he was kissing me.

Gwen: Well, I had to cover. That was the only thing that came out at the time.

Abigail: I don't believe you. [Laughs] I don't believe you. And I don't believe that Jake was threatening--

Chad: I walked in on that. I walked in on it, and Jake said that it was about DiMera and I'm guessing it was about him keeping a secret with Kate.

Gwen: Yes. Exactly.

Abigail: Do not tell me you are buying this story.

Chad: I don't think it makes sense.

Abigail: It makes no sense. It makes no sense, and we haven't even gotten to the part about her lying about me making a reservation at the Salem Inn. You knew--you knew exactly what you were doing. You knew how much trouble it would cause for Chad and me if he thought I was even looking in Jake's direction.

Gwen: I'm sorry.

Abigail: No you're not sorry. You're not sorry and you're lying to me. And I know why.

[Dramatic music]

Abigail: Hm. Wow. This just all makes sense now, doesn't it? You and my husband?

Chad: Abigail.

Abigail: You've been after my husband this whole time, haven't you?

Gwen: Abigail, how could you possibly think that?

Abigail: Well, when I came back from Florida you were in his arms and you kissed him.

Gwen: I already told you, Abigail, that was a mistake. I was trying to make Jake jealous, and it never should've happened.

Abigail: You are so good. God, she's good, right? You're so good that I know you're lying, and I actually still kinda want to believe you.

Gwen: It's the truth.

Abigail: Okay, truth. So, while we're on the subject of truth, why don't we discuss this folder you've got on me. So, what's up, are you stalking me and my family?

Gwen: Last time I checked, it was perfectly legal to research your employer.

Abigail: Hm. You were worming your way into my house, into my family, into my life, and you're good. You're really, really good. So, not only do I believe that you're helping me. I actually kind of thought you were my friend. I actually thought maybe I could trust you. However, all the while, you're whispering things to my husband. Things like I'm being unfaithful, like I'm lying about being in bed with Jake, and you're doing it all because you want to be in bed with my husband.

Gwen: That is not true.

Abigail: No?! No, it's not? It's not true? You know, really, I'm kind of shocked you didn't just take advantage of him last night. It seems like that would've been a really good opportunity while he was all passed out, drunk in a hotel.


[Melancholy music]

Abigail: Unless that was a lie. Did you take advantage of my husband last night?

Gwen: Well, it seems that since you don't want to believe a single word I'm saying, I think... Chad? I'll let you take this one. Did you feel taken advantage of last night, Chad?

Marlena: You know, many times triggers can be subtle. Subconscious. Like a sound. Or a smell. Maybe something that Charlie was wearing. Did he say anything to you? Honey, it looks like you're remembering something.

Allie: He just... he seemed so familiar.

Marlena: Charlie?

Allie: Yeah. I think... I think I might know what it is. Maybe Charlie seems familiar because-- and this is going to sound weird-- but I think that something about him reminds me of Tripp.

Tripp: My mom could be hurt or worse.

Roman: Just shut up. Shut up and listen to me, all right? I don't give a damn about your mom. And I sure as hell don't give a damn about the bastard who attacked my granddaughter. You are damn lucky I don't just beat the hell out of you.

Tripp: I didn't do it.

Roman: Your DNA matches the baby. Even a slick guy like you can't talk your way around that.

Tripp: No, that test does not 100% prove that I'm the father.

Roman: She ran it four times! Four times.

Tripp: And it's wrong. Okay? And everyone will know the truth soon. Because my dad and John are looking into it. And hopefully they're finding out answers as we speak.

John: The son of a bitch is telling the truth.

Steve: So, it wasn't you. Is there another male relative we don't know about?

Angelo: [Scoffs] You know, my grandfather, God rest his soul, he had 13 siblings. We got a passel of second, third, and fourth cousins.

Steve: It had to be a closer relation than that.

Angelo: Hmm. Maybe it was Ava's other son?

Steve: Ava's other son?

Chad: I was drunk last night. No. No. I wasn't taken advantage of.

Gwen: You see?

Chad: But you've-- you've been manipulating us, Gwen, and the games and half-truths and outright lies.

Gwen: I'm sorry you feel that way.

Abigail: That's not good enough. Go upstairs and pack your things. I want you out of this house right now.

[Somber music]

Marlena: I guess I could see some resemblance between Charlie and Tripp.

Allie: My God, is this how my life is going to be now? Freaking out every time I see a guy who reminds me a tiny bit of Tripp?

Marlena: We talked about this. It's a process.

Allie: Yeah, well, I thought that, I don't know, filing the civil suit would make me feel like I had some sort of power, like things were getting better.

Marlena: Honey, you're going to heal. And you're doing everything you can right now to make that happen.

Allie: Then why do I feel worse than ever right now?

Roman: Let me get this straight. Steve sucked John into doubting Allie too?

Tripp: It's about getting to the truth.

Roman: The truth is staring me in the face. The truth is you are just as sick as your mother.

Kayla: Hey, hey, hey. What's going on here?

Roman: Trying not to tear this scum apart.

Kayla: Uh, why don't I handle this? Tripp, you can go circulate those flyers okay?

Tripp: Yeah.

Roman: Why don't you just stick them up your--

Kayla: Hey, Roman!

Roman: I'm sorry, you know that crazy kid. He's giving me some damn story about John helping Steve prove that Tripp didn't rape Allie.

Kayla: Maybe it's not so crazy.

Roman: You're kidding me, right?

Kayla: No. I'm not.

Steve: What the hell you talking about, Angelo? Ava's other son?

Angelo: Ava never told you she had another kid after Tripp?

Steve: No, she didn't.

Angelo: That'll be because her and the kid, they were never close. She didn't raise him or nothing. His father did.

Steve: I don't believe this.

John: Do think Tripp knows anything about it?

Steve: No. He would've told me. Oh, my God, if Tripp has a half-brother, that would make this DNA match even more likely.

John: So this-- this other kid. What can you tell us about him?

Angelo: His name's Charlie.

Charlie: Oh, I have an idea. We could go ice skating.

Claire: Ooh, that sounds fun.

Charlie: Although, the last time I did that, I broke my third metatarsal, and it hasn't been quite right since.

Claire: Oh. Maybe not. We could, we could see a movie?

Charlie: I don't suppose you like anime?

Claire: Uh, okay, maybe we could... maybe we could chill at your place?

Charlie: Uh... no.

Claire: [Giggles] Why not?

Gwen: You're kicking me onto the street?

Abigail: Yup, and you're fired.

Gwen: You can't do that.

Abigail: I think I just did.

Gwen: What about the children? They'll be completely heartbroken.

Abigail: They'll completely get over it.

Gwen: Abigail, I know that you're very angry.

Abigail: You have no idea! And just so we're clear, when you leave this house, I don't want to see you anywhere near me, my kids, or my husband ever again!

Gwen: Chad? I work for you both. Do you feel the same way?

Abigail: Yes, he does.

Gwen: Why don't you let your husband answer?

Abigail: If you don't shut up, you are not gonna leave this room with your teeth in your mouth!

Chad: Abby. Abigail. I'll deal with her.

Abigail: Fine. But don't you fall for her lies. Don't fall for her stupid sob stories! You are so sick. To convince my husband that I'm having an affair with Jake. I cannot believe I thought that you were my friend. You better be gone when I get back.

[Tense music]

Marlena: Some days may be harder than others. That doesn't mean you're going backwards. Look at all you've accomplished already. I mean, you're--you're examining your feelings, you're trying to understand them, dealing with them. I'm proud of you. I think you should be proud of herself.

Allie: I guess.

Marlena: What is it?

Allie: It's just... no matter what I do or what the courts decide, Tripp will never accept responsibility for what he did. And it's not like he's going to go to prison. So, I just hope to God that he never puts another girl through the hell that I'm going through.

Charlie: I would love to take you back to my apartment, give you that grand tour I owe you. But it's even messier than it was the last time you were there. There's takeout cartons everywhere, and there's clothes piled all over the place.

Claire: Okay. Okay, well then, what do you want to do?

Charlie: Maybe we could go to your place instead?

Claire: That is a great idea.

Steve: So, where can we find this Charlie?

Angelo: Hell if I know. He grew up in Philly, but he flew the coop months ago.

John: Oh, Philly. That's good. So, what else can you tell me about him?

Angelo: You know, he's a bit of a duck. You know, wears glasses; he's clumsy as hell. But you know, the kid, he's like a human calculator. I'll give him that.

Steve: Well, you got a number? A name? What kind of work does he do? What else can you tell us?

Angelo: If you guys want to find him, you're gonna have to do it on your own. I need to go look for my cousin.

Steve: Uh-uh. You're not going anywhere until you tell us everything you know.

Angelo: I suggest you move out of my way.

Roman: I'm sorry I lost my cool, all right? But it's the first time I've seen Tripp since I found out what he did to Allie, and I think the reason I'm so damn mad, so extra mad is I really liked that kid. I thought he was a good guy.

Kayla: I hear you.

Roman: And this crazy story that Steve is running around? Come on, you can't believe that Tripp is really innocent, can you?

Kayla: Well, it's very unlikely, but... anything's possible.

John: Hey, hey. Thank you, Angelo. You can walk. Just stay away from my granddaughter, okay?

Angelo: Only if you return the favor and stay the hell away from me. Both of you.

[Suspenseful music]

Steve: What the hell did you do that for? With Ava missing, this dude is the only one who can tell us how to find that kid.

John: That's just the thing. I think I know where Charlie is.

Charlie: I hope your parents don't mind that you brought me over.

Claire: I have the coolest parents ever. So, they wouldn't mind if they were here, but they are not here. Because they are on their honeymoon.

Charlie: Perfect. So, we have the place all to ourselves.

Allie: He just... he seems so familiar.

Marlena: Charlie?

Claire: Yeah. I think I might know what it is. Maybe Charlie seems familiar because... I think that something about him reminds me of Tripp.

[Somber music]

Tripp: Hey, Dad, I was just wondering if you talked to Angelo yet? So hoping you got him to admit that he's the one who raped Allie.

Allie: What the hell was that about?

Gwen: Well, how very gallant of you to protect me.

Chad: You're such a bitch. You lied to me. You lied to me about the kiss; you lied to me about the hotel room. You tricked me.

Gwen: Didn't take much for you to doubt your wife. I just connected your sad little dots for you, and you were all too ready to believe me.

Chad: What was I thinking?

Gwen: Blame it on liquor and a broken heart, darling. Wasn't all that bad.

Chad: Stop. Shut up. If Abigail finds out, it's gonna crush her.

Gwen: Well then, it'll be our little secret.

Chad: Yes, it will be. The farther you are away from this house in our lives, the better. I need you to go upstairs, I need you to pack, and I need you to get out here.

[Slaps table]

Gwen: I am not leaving.

Chad: What?

Gwen: I am not quitting my job. And I am not leaving this house.

Chad: You don't have a choice.

Gwen: No, you do not have a choice. So, I suggest you go and speak to your little wife and you tell her that I am staying.

Chad: And how am I supposed to do that?

Gwen: You're a clever man, Chad. You'll figure it out. But I suggest that you make it believable. Or I will just have to spill our little secret that you decided to bed me to ring in the New Year.
