Brady: Hey there.

Chloe: Hey. Maggie is thrilled to spend all day with rachel.

Brady: Maggie is our angel. Thank you for dropping her off.

Chloe: No thanks necessary. I love spending time with her. Especially since I miss parker. Here. But I know he's being spoiled rotten by my parents, so he's perfectly fine.

Brady: [Laughs]

Chloe: Uh, how we doing here? What's going on?

Brady: Well, I'm taking a deep dive into titan's financials here to see what kind of trouble philip is really in.

Chloe: I know that he didn't say so himself, but I know that philip appreciates your help.

Brady: Well, like I said, I'm really not doing it for him, I'm doing it for you. Even though it could get me in a little bit of trouble.

[Foreboding music]

Xander: Charlie, get in here. Where's my smoothie?

Philip: Charlie won't be in today.

Xander: What the hell? Did you give our intern the morning off? Charlie's been arrested for kidnapping?! Our charlie?

[Knock at door]

Belle: Hey. Thought you might like some tea.

Claire: Thanks.

[Melancholy music]

Belle: [Clears throat] How you doing?

Claire: [Sniffs] I told charlie how much I loved this band. How impossible it was to get tickets to their concerts. But he did it. For me. Because he wanted me to be happy. It was the best christmas present ever. And now... mom, how is it possible that the amazing guy who got me these tickets is the same guy who is being accused of kidnapping ava vitali and... and attacking allie? I just--I don't understand how i could have been so wrong about him.

Kayla: Rafe, hi, it's kayla. I just wanted to tell you that i got ava's blood work back. Yeah, we were right. She was drugged. Yeah. Okay, well, you're welcome. I'll talk to you soon.

Nicole: Ava was drugged? It was that rat charlie, wasn't it?

[Suspenseful music]

Rafe: Take a seat.

Charlie: I have nothing to say to you. By the way, where's my lawyer?

Rafe: Trying to convince D.A. Trask to release you ahead of your arraignment.

Charlie: Because I'm innocent?

Rafe: Well, ava vitali says you knocked her out, tied her up, held her hostage.

Charlie: I heard that ava vitali said a lot of things.

Rafe: Yes, she has. She also said you implicated yourself in the rape of allie horton.

[Cell phone beeps]

Tripp: Ah, it's better you don't know.

[Tense music]

Steve: [Grunts] Ow...

Tripp: Dad?

Steve: [Groans]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Belle: Claire, honey... charlie only allowed you to see a part of who he is.

Claire: I just... I believed that he was the man that I saw. You know, good, sweet, kind, romantic. But I guess I was just so desperate for a boyfriend that i didn't see that he was just lying to me.

Belle: No, you are not desperate.

Claire: Oh, come on.

Belle: You trusted him!

Claire: Mom, you know desperate is my thing. It's what I do. I crush on a guy, I get obsessed; it's what I did with tripp, it's what I do with theo. Even though I knew they loved ciara more than me, that they had just settled for me, I still wanted them so bad. But with charlie, it was... it was different. It was so different. I felt like the one, mom, for the first time in my life.

Belle: Honey, I know you did.

Claire: And now... what if it was just a lie? And I'm the pathetic idiot who fell for it?

Chloe: How many times do i have to tell you I had nothing to do with what happened to claire's cousin? I realize that a lot of you are friends with tripp dalton's father, but there is no way you're gonna pin what he did to allie horton on me.

Rafe: Well, right now you're being held because ava vitali alleged that you knocked her out and held her against her will.

Charlie: Huh. My lawyer said that ava also said that I stabbed tripp to death in front of her. And then his father took his body and buried him? Which obviously didn't happen, so I would think that anything that woman says about me isn't really reliable, now, is it?

Rafe: Yeah, well, if ava was confused, maybe it was because she was drugged.

Charlie: Is that what she told you?

Rafe: Oh, actually, we have proof. And I'm betting you're responsible.

Kayla: Nicole, you know i can't discuss ava's test results with you.

Nicole: Well, you were discussing it with rafe.

Kayla: Well, it's part of a police investigation.

Nicole: Mm, okay. Well, "the spectator" said that charlie was held in connection with ava's abduction, so obviously, he drugged her. So what kind of drug was it? I mean, is she okay?

Kayla: Nicole.

Nicole: Please, kayla. She is my friend.

Kayla: I really don't know what else I can say.

Nicole: [Sighs] Well, I want to see her.

Kayla: Well, she's not in her room because I sent her for a brain scan.

Nicole: Do you think the effects will be permanent?

Kayla: I'm really not gonna say anything else about this.

Nicole: What kind of monster abducts his own mother, ties her up, and drugs her?

Kayla: We don't even know for certain that charlie is ava's son.

Nicole: Well, maybe not yet. Hopefully, the D.A. Will make that creep give them a sample of his dna, and then we will know once and for all that not only is he ava's son, but he is the animal who raped allie.

Steve: [Groaning]

Tripp: Hey.

Steve: What the hell, son?

Tripp: I'm so sorry. I had no idea it was you. I thought maybe charlie was released from jail.

Steve: Charlie is still in custody. I checked with rafe on my way here. Ow, man. And I thought we had this conversation. You know, the one where you leave all this to the authorities?

Tripp: Yeah, how can i do that, dad? I mean-- you just wait for them to do proper channels and by the book? No, I need answers now!

Steve: So you just broke in to charlie's apartment?

Tripp: I am tired of people treating me like a criminal! Okay, I need proof that I'm innocent, dad, before I'm sued for a crime I didn't commit.

Steve: Okay, but I told you not to go rogue on me!

Tripp: Yeah, well, you're here, so what's your excuse?

Steve: You! Someone has to save you from yourself.

We're here for the heavy


Tripp: I don't need saving, dad, I can take care of myself.

Steve: Oh, man. You sound like me when I was your age. I can't tell you how many times things went totally south.

Tripp: Yeah, well, they're not going to in this case. Okay, I know what I'm doing, dad.

Steve: Really? Is that why you went off half-cocked? Didn't take my advice to let the police deal with charlie?

Tripp: You said not to go to the station to confront him. But you didn't say anything about getting a sample of his dna.

Steve: No, tripp, no. Taking matters into your own hands is not the way to play this.

Tripp: Well, maybe it is. 'Cause I got what I came for, and I'm feeling really good about it.

Steve: [Sighs]

Claire: Charlie told me that he's not ava's son. That it's a misunderstanding, that he didn't attack allie.

Belle: Claire, ava told nicole that charlie confessed to the rape. And then he knocked her out and tied her up because she was gonna expose him.

Claire: I know, I know. But isn't ava kinda out of it? Isn't she imagining things? What if she imagined this? It's just, he was so sincere when he told me he was innocent. He begged me to believe him. I keep...

[Sighs] I keep thinking back to when we met. To everything we've done together since. For a clue that he is this... lying monster. But nothing. He's been perfect. A total gentleman. I mean, you and dad liked him, right? What? What is it? Tell me.

Belle: I mean, I-- thought he was really charming when I met him on christmas eve.

Claire: But?

Belle: But...your dad's not really a fan.

Claire: Well, dad did give him the third degree when they met, so I guess it turns out dad was right.

Belle: Listen, I do know that charlie seemed to really care about you.

Claire: It was so nice having a real boyfriend at family events. You know, introducing him to everyone. It was great. Until he left.

[Suspenseful music]

Do you think charlie left... because he was afraid that allie would recognize him?

Xander: "Charlie dale has been arrested and is being held at the salem jail after mob princess ava vitali was found tied up in mr. Dale's apartment. Charges are pending." Well, that doesn't make any sense. Kid's a total wimp. Any idea why our geeky little charlie would want to kidnap ava vitali, of all people?

Philip: Not a clue. But since he's not coming in any time soon, I should find a temp.

Xander: She does have a lot of enemies though, eh?

Philip: Yeah, I guess.

Xander: Lot of people who would probably want her silenced.

Philip: Yeah...well.

Xander: Who knows? Maybe even you.

Philip: Me?

Xander: Yeah, you. Did you give charlie an extracurricular assignment?

Philip: [Chuckles] Are you crazy? Why would I have our intern kidnap ava vitali?

Philip: Because she's your boss.

Chloe: I've really dragged you into something, haven't I?

Brady: [Chuckles] You have no idea.

Chloe: Look, I know that you're worried that the mob's gonna retaliate because you're gonna put a stop to their laundering operations, but i think that if we can come up with enough stuff to help protect philip, then we can just turn that over to the police, and we'll be safe.

Brady: Yeah, I-I agree with you. It's never a good idea to cross the mob, but that's not the trouble I'm talking about.

Chloe: What does that mean?

Brady: Kristen saw a picture of you and I in the newspaper... kissing on new year's eve. And she gave me hell about it. This is the sound of an asthma attack...

Philip: Why on earth would you say ava is my boss? My father is my boss. Yours, too.

Xander: So you deny it? You don't secretly work for ava vitali?

Philip: You should lay off on the caffeine, mate. It's making you a little cray-cray.

Xander: Did you really think I wouldn't find out what you're doing with ava?

Philip: Get out of my way, damn it.

Xander: You're laundering mob money for her. That's why you wormed your way back into titan, isn't it? Isn't it?!

Claire: At the police station, when I spoke to charlie, I told him that allie thought he looked familiar. And he just kinda shrugged it off and said that just because he looked like someone she knew, it didn't mean that he attacked her.

Belle: You want to believe him, claire, I know that.

Claire: But I mean it was kind of weird, right? On christmas eve? I mean, right as I introduce allie and him, he suddenly feels sick and has to go. And allie...she seemed really freaked out the other day when charlie came to join us.

Belle: Did she say anything?

Claire: She just--she just said that she didn't want to be a third wheel and that she had somewhere to go. She looked so freaked out. What if seeing charlie is helping allie remember what happened to her in london? What if it was charlie who attacked her, and not tripp?

Steve: So you got a toothbrush. That you stole. You know that kind of evidence won't hold up in court.

Tripp: Just like you knew it when you stole my toothbrush.

Steve: [Sighs] And I'm sorry for breaking your trust.

Tripp: No, you don't have to apologize, dad. You did it to prove my innocence. I'm just trying to do the same thing.

Steve: I know that, but this is not--

Tripp: Look, look, after what I did to kayla, I had no right to even think that she was gonna forgive me--hell, love me. But she did. And it's been... everything to me. But now... the way she looks at me... no. No. If the dna on this toothbrush proves that charlie is henry's father, then maybe she will finally see that I wasn't involved. And so will allie and everyone else.

Steve: Tripp, kayla loves you. And based on what we found out already... I know she's coming around.

Tripp: Yeah, well. This will seal it. Unless you're gonna try to talk me into "proper channels" or "by the book."

Steve: [Sighs] Okay. Let's go get that tested and clear your name.

Tripp: Thank you. But it's not just about clearing my name, dad, it's about allie getting justice. She deserves to know who raped her so he can be held accountable.

Steve: She does. But you do know the D.A. And the police are gonna have to get their own dna from charlie. Now, let's get the hell out of here.

[Suspenseful music]

Rafe: I'm waiting. And I'm very tired of your bull. Let's hear it.

[Tense music]

Charlie: Okay. Fine. Ava came to my place. She was confused. She was talking about knives. Wanting to hurt herself. And I didn't know what else to do, so I tied her up.

Rafe: To protect her from herself?

Charlie: Obviously.

Rafe: Why didn't you call the police?

Charlie: I don't know. It just didn't occur to me.

Rafe: Didn't occur to you? So a woman comes to your door talking about knives and self-harm, and instead of calling the police, you tie her up.

Charlie: I guess I panicked.

Rafe: Maybe you didn't want the police... or anyone else to know that she was at your apartment. Why didn't you at least call a doctor, hmm? Why didn't you do that?

Charlie: I just thought that I--

Rafe: That you what? You thought what?

Charlie: I thought that she-- I thought that I could--

Rafe: You could what, charlie, what? Why didn't you call a doctor?

Charlie: Because she hates doctors! She's terrified of 'em.

Rafe: She hates doc-- she's terrified of doctors? Your mother is terrified of doctors? Why? Any ideas?

Charlie: No! No idea. I just--I know that she hates them, and that's why I didn't call 'em.

Rafe: There it is. Ava's your mother.

Chloe: Oh, wow, um... look, I'm sorry that kristen was upset about that kiss, but you didn't explain to her that it was just a new year's eve kiss? I mean, she knows that you and i are just friends now.

Brady: Yeah, yeah, she does, I mean, yeah. I explained everything, but she... she tends to perceive things in a certain way, and it gets distorted, and she overreacted. It's understandable, though. Right? I mean, she's--she's lonely, she's in prison, she's away from her family, it's-- I'm sorry, this is not your problem. I shouldn't even be--I'm sorry.

Chloe: No, no, no, it's okay, I just--I feel bad that you feel guilty about something so innocent.

Brady: It's not--but i don't--it's not guilt. There's nothing to feel guilty about, obviously, but I feel bad that kristen was threatened. For no reason.

Chloe: Yeah, um... I-I guess maybe I would feel threatened if I was in her position. I mean, we are just--we're just friends now, but, um, you know, we were married once.

Brady: That is--that is something I actually do feel very guilty about. Now that you brought it up.

Chloe: What does that mean? Why?

Brady: Chloe, come on. I mean, I blew it. I was stupid, I was selfish, I-- I messed up, I hurt you. Hurt myself in the process.

Chloe: Hey, that was a really long time ago, brady.

Brady: I know, but--

Chloe: You're not the same person anymore.

Brady: I'm not that guy anymore, but I, um... I'm really grateful that you have given me a second chance. Your friendship means a lot to me. It's very important.

Chloe: And yours to me.

Brady: I'm also grateful that I'm getting a second chance with kristen. I gotta do everything in my power not to screw this up. What? I know that look, what were you thinking right now?

Chloe: No, I--no, it's ju-- I guess I... it just... it worries me, brady, for you. You know, her being in prison, it''s just sad.

Brady: It is sad. It's sad, but what do I do about it? I mean, I--I mean, that's the-- those are the cards I was dealt, right? Deal with it.

Chloe: And you're just gonna accept that? I mean, are you gonna be okay being without her for the next 4 1/2 years?

[Melancholy music]

Philip: [Laughs] Me? Laundering money for ava vitali? Why the hell would i be doing that?

Xander: You tell me.

[Suspenseful music]

Look familiar?

Philip: You bastard.

Xander: Wait until your daddy finds out.

Philip: How did you get this?

Xander: I didn'T. No, all the credit has to go to my beautiful and so very clever sarah.

Philip: Sarah? What?!

Xander: Why are you surprised, philip? Oh, please, I'M...don't tell me. You really thought that she was crushing on you? Did you really believe that you had a chance with her? In case you're having trouble connecting the dots, sarah and i didn't break up. We are as in love as ever. In fact, maybe even more so. Turns out that it was quite the bonding experience, finding out what you were up to.

Philip: Damn you. Damn--

Xander: It's pretty funny when you think about it, that the way you sniffed around sarah, shamelessly flirting with her in my presence, just hoping I'd get so jealous that I'd do something stupid enough to force victor to fire me.

[Sighs] Turns out you're the stupid one.

Philip: New year's eve. Out of nowhere, she tells me she can't have anything to do with me anymore. Because she had gotten what she wanted. She had stolen my files.

Xander: So she let you down easy. Oh, my girl has such a big heart, and you have such a big problem.

Philip: You son of a bitch.

Xander: Oh, I'd watch my words if I were you. Because whatever advantage you think you have being victor's son, when I tell him the degree to which you've put his empire at risk, he's gonna throw you out on your ass. Out of this company... out of this family.

Steve: Hey, sweetness.

Kayla: Hey.

Steve: Just the person we wanted to see.

Tripp: How's my mom?

Kayla: Well, she's a little more coherent this morning, so i ordered some tests. A brain scan. She's not back in her room yet.

Steve: We have something else for you to test.

Kayla: I'm guessing that's charlie'S.

Tripp: It is. And hopefully the dna on this will prove that he's the one who assaulted allie. And that he's the father of her baby.

Claire: Is it wrong that i just--I really hope that there is an explanation for this? That charlie is the guy that i think that he is?

Belle: Honey. Ava's claims are very serious. She said that he kept her prisoner and tied her up for days.

Claire: Yeah, but I was at charlie's apartment. I didn't see ava. And--and I mean, she's been hallucinating, right? So how can we believe her?

Belle: Because rafe found ava in charlie's apartment, honey. And she was in really bad shape, mentally, and--it's just that her whole story seems very legitimate.

Claire: Right, okay, so we just believe ava, this ruthless gangster, and we don't believe charlie, who has been nothing but sweet and kind?

Charlie: So ava's my mother. Is that a crime?

Rafe: Very weird thing to lie about.

Charlie: Yeah, well, she didn't acknowledge me for my whole life, so why should i acknowledge her? You know what? I'm done talking to you without a lawyer.

Nicole: Charlie dale, you sick son of a bitch.

Charlie: Who are you?

Nicole: Nicole brady. I'm your worst nightmare.

[Tense music]

Nicole: You drugged my friend, and you raped my niece. Admit it, you creep.

Rafe: Nicole, back off.

Nicole: Oh, please! What kind of sick, sick perv are you? I hope they put you in jail for the rest of your life.

Charlie: This is all some sort of mistake. I am not going to jail.

Nicole: Oh, well you better hope that you do, because that is the safest place you'll be, because there's a whole lot of people, including me, who wanna kill you for what you did to allie!

Rafe: That's enough! Enough. Let's go. Come on.

[Tense music]

Belle: I know it's hard to reconcile the charlie that you know with the charlie that hurt ava and allie, and, you know, this might be cold comfort, but I just thank god that you did not get more deeply involved with him.

Claire: What does that mean? You think that because I didn't sleep with him or marry him, that I'm not deeply involved? I am deeply involved, mom! I fell in love with him. Don't you get that? And for once in my life, I thought that I actually got it right. That I chose someone who loved me for who I am.

Belle: Oh, honey.

Claire: [Sobbing] Why did I trust him? How could I have been so stupid?

Belle: No, no, no, no. You are not stupid.

Claire: I am.

Belle: No, you love him just like you said. And charlie is very clever. He fooled a lot of people.

[Somber music]

Steve: Tripp took a page from our book, snagged charlie's toothbrush without his permission.

Kayla: You know that's not--

Tripp: I do, I do. I know that if the dna test proves that he's henry's father, it won't be admissible in a criminal case against him, but I'm hoping that I can get the civil case against me dismissed. And that you and everyone else will finally believe that i didn't assault allie. And that henry is not my baby.

Kayla: [Sighs] Tripp, there is nothing I want more than your innocence proven. Nothing I want more.

Tripp: Thank you.

Kayla: I'll get the dna test run right away. I still have henry's sample that allie gave me permission to use.

Tripp: Do you mind if I wait in my mom's room till she gets back from her scan?

Kayla: No problem.

Tripp: Thanks.

Steve: Okay. Thanks for what you said to tripp. And for agreeing to run the test.

Kayla: Well, if charlie dale ends up being henry's father, I'm--I'm gonna owe tripp a big apology. And a bigger one to his dad.

I'm erin.

-And I'm margo.

Steve: Hey. No apologies necessary, sweetness. You had good reason to believe that tripp was guilty. I mean, you ran four dna tests.

Kayla: Yeah, but you never doubted him for a minute. Even with all the evidence, you never stopped believing in him and fighting for him.

Steve: I know my son. I know he could never hurt a woman like that. I just hope that soon, everyone knows it.

[Melancholy music]

[Phone beeps]

Tripp: Ah, it's better you don't know. Damn it.

Nicole: If charlie is lying about ava being his mother, then god only knows what else he's lying about.

Rafe: Well, true. But catching him in one lie doesn't necessarily mean that he kidnapped ava or attacked allie.

Nicole: Great. Well, then, how are we gonna prove it?

Brady: What kind of question is that? I mean, chloe, if it takes four years or ten times that amount, I'm committed to kristen and our family. I'm gonna wait.

Chloe: I'm sorry, I shouldn't have asked you that. It's just...I--I'm-- worried about you. It's not gonna be easy being alone for the next few years and juggling rachel and your work.

Brady: No, well, hey, hey-- you're alone. You're managing okay. You're doing well, right?

Chloe: True, but the difference is, I could meet someone tomorrow and fall madly in love.

Brady: Come on, look. Kristen made her choices. She made 'em, and I have to support her, and I'm gonna be there for her. That's exactly what I'm gonna do, and that's the end of it.

Chloe: Well, I hope she knows how lucky she is to have you.

Brady: I remind her of that every time I see her.

Chloe: [Laughs] As you should. And, um, look, again, I'm sorry that she misinterpreted our kiss. It'll never happen again. Not even a peck on the cheek.

Brady: No--no.

Chloe: [Chuckles]

Brady: You're a good friend.

Chloe: So are you.

Brady: Okay, now that that's settled, I guess we should focus on saving philip from the mob.

Chloe: [Sighs]

Philip: You don't know what you've done.

Xander: What's to know? I won. It's really quite simple. Should be painfully obvious to you.

Philip: I don't get it. You've had this information for a while and you haven't told my father yet. Why?

Xander: Mm. No, uh, plans for mercy, I promise you.

Philip: Then what is the plan?

Xander: Unlike you, I care a great deal about victor. News like this--finding out that his son is a devious little worm--it'll be quite the blow, won't it? And his health isn't the best. As I'm sure you know. So yeah. I am gonna tell him that you've been using his company to launder mob money with all the necessary documentation from your files. But then I'm going to explain to him that there's a solution. Titan is safe, and I've already undone the damage.

Philip: Undone the damage? What does that mean?

Xander: I dissolved the shell company you were using to launder the money for the mob.

Philip: You dissolved... the company?

Xander: I did, indeed. Poof! It no longer exists.

Philip: You idiot. If you shut down that pipeline for the money, then the mob will kill me!

Xander: Overreacting a wee bit, aren't we? I mean, ava's laid up in the hospital. She won't be coming after you anytime soon.

Philip: Maybe ava won't, but angelo vitali will. And how is my father gonna react then, huh? When he finds out that, thanks to you, his son is a dead man?
