Kate: Oh, gabi. That didn't take long. What, did you smell jake's rise to power all the way in arizona?

[Tense music]

[Soft music]

Ben: Allie?

Allie: Ben, hey.

Ben: Hey. Um, I don't want to bother you or anything. I just-- just wanted to ask if you're all right.

Allie: Why?

Ben: I'm sorry, um, I don't mean to butt in like this. It's just that... I helped dr. Evans get claire away from that charlie creep. She told me what he had done.

Allie: Well, thank you for helping her. And, um, I guess the answer is... I'm not all right.

Ben: I'm sorry.

Allie: I was so sure it was tripp. And now I might have accused the wrong guy. And if I did, then that means that my baby's father is a lunatic who tied up his own mother and drugged her and is now out on bail. So no, no, I'm not doing too great.

Charlie: Hey... claire.

Abigail: Chad, if you know why, just tell me.

Chad: I think your parents should be here.

Abigail: They're out.

Chad: Where?

Abigail: I don't know. My dad just yelled up the stairs they were leaving. I mean, does it matter? I'm not gonna fall apart. After everything gwen has done to me, how bad can it be?

Chad: I think you should sit down.

Abigail: Just tell me. Why does gwen hate me so much?

Chad: Rolf said gwen thinks that your dad is her father.

Gwen: Would you like a glass of wine? I could phone room service.

Jack: Knock it off.

Gwen: You know, the service is truly just terrific here. On new year's eve, there was candlelight. There was champagne.

Jack: I said knock it off!

Jennifer: Jack! You were about to tell us why you did what you did, what you could possibly have against abigail.

Gwen: Well, actually, it's not just abigail. You see, jack, when I saw your letter that you wrote to kate, I thought, "oh, this is so touching. The whole world should know what a very kind, thoughtful man you are."

Jack: Okay. You got a beef with me, with us. Okay. Why in god's name take it out on abigail?

Gwen: Oh, abigail.

[Scoffs] That's all you care about, isn't it? Abigail, your precious daughter, abigail. Guess what. She may be your daughter, but so am I.

Jack: [Scoffs] I have no idea what you're talking about.

Gwen: [Chuckles softly] Yeah, I thought you'd try to deny it, especially in front of her.

Jack: No, no, I mean I literally--I mean I-I really don't know--

Gwen: You know exactly what I am talking about. You knocked up my mum and you waltzed off. I am the kid that you threw away.

[Dramatic music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Gabi: Kate, oh, champagne, how thoughtful.

Kate: Wow, you really hit the road running. First day of work, right?

[Chuckles] He certainly has an aggressive business style, doesn't he?

Jake: No, no, no, no, kate, please, please, let me explain.

Kate: No, no, no, I don't want to interrupt. I mean, it looks like you're about to seal the deal, so...

Jake: No, no, no, there's no deal, I swear. It--it wasn't--

Kate: It wasn't what it looks like? Come on, don't drag out that cliché on me, please.

Jake: No, there's no clichés, just the truth. You are the one that I want, okay? Hey, no, no, no, no, no. Please, please, please, don't go, please.

[Tense music]

Abigail: But that can't be true.

Chad: I'm--I'm not saying it is. I'm just--I'm just telling you that rolf said that's what gwen thinks.

Abigail: No, I think she's lying. I think she's moved from gaslighting to blackmail.

Chad: Listen, I'm gonna-- I'm--I'm gonna say this because I-I think it's important because I-I thought the same thing. I asked rolf. I thought that--that gwen was just doing this to inflict as much pain as possible. But he said, and-- and I believe him, that-- why would gwen tell him? Why would gwen tip her hand, right? He--he thinks that gwen is so consumed with hate that she couldn't keep it inside, that she couldn't not tell someone. I'm not saying it's true. I'm just saying that that's what gwen believes.

Abigail: But if gwen is my dad's daughter, then why is she coming after me and my mom?

Chad: 'Cause she thinks that your dad threw her and her mom under the bus to make way for his new family, that you got everything that she should have had.

Jack: I didn't throw anyone away. I-I swear, I have no idea what she's talking about.

Gwen: Really? Are you honestly going to stand there and tell me that the name tiffany rizczech means nothing to you?

[Soft music]

Ben: Do you think maybe it would be better if you know for sure?

Allie: That's the thing. I still might not even know. I mean, even if they get a dna test that shows that charlie's the father, it wouldn't prove that he assaulted me. He'd probably still get away with it, unless...

Ben: Unless what?

Allie: Unless I remember everything that happened that night.

Claire: I-I forgot something.

Charlie: Claire, I-I'm not gonna hurt you. I couldn'T. We're--we're in a public place, all right? All you have to do is yell, and 100 bradys would come out here and pound the crap out of me.

Claire: Yeah. Yeah, you're right.

Charlie: I just-- I think they brainwashed you into believing all those awful things they said about me.

Claire: They didn't brainwash me. They told me the truth. So now how can I believe a single word that you say? You told me that ava vitali was not your mother. You didn't forget. You didn't slip up. It didn't slip your mind. You told me a deliberate lie and you told it to my face.

Charlie: I know. I just-- I thought that if you knew that tripp and I were brothers and allie's family said that my dna was a match that you would believe them. Claire, I didn't rape her. I would never rape anybody. You know me. I swear, I didn't do it. It was tripp.

Claire: No, I don't know you. I thought I did. I thought you were so open and honest. I loved that about you. But you weren't so open and honest about tying your mother up and drugging her. You kind of held that one back.

Charlie: Claire, let me explain.

Claire: No, I took you to my bedroom to have sex with you, and your mother was across the other side of town hallucinating because of you.

Charlie: My entire life, my mother has always screwed things up for me, but this time, I had a job at titan. I met you. But none of that mattered to her. All that matters, all that ever matters to her is tripp. You know what that feels like, don't you? You told me that--that tripp and theo, they--they wanted ciara and you always felt like you were second-best.

Claire: Yeah. Yeah, and I obsessed over it. I drove myself so crazy that I lost my mind and tried to set her on fire. Is that what happened to you? You drove yourself crazy until you finally snapped?

Jake: Okay, this is not what you think.

Kate: Oh, come on. What happened to "no clichés"?

Jake: Gabi just showed up here out of nowhere.

Gabi: It's rafe's birthday.

Kate: Oh, oh, I see. Instead of sending a card, you just show up at dimera enterprises and throw yourself at the new ceo.

Gabi: No, I came here to see rafe, and as soon as I landed, I heard that jake was promoted, so I came to congratulate him.

Kate: Oh, in that very special way that only you can do.

Jake: Gabi showed up here to get me to put gabi chic back under the dimera umbrella. I asked her for a business proposal. She gave me a more... personal proposal. It's like you said. She threw herself at me.

Gabi: [Scoffs] Really? I, uh--I threw myself at you? Oh, kate, you and I can both agree that jake telling you that I threw myself at him is just a-a disgusting example of his huge male ego.

Kate: You know something, gabi? I think it's your huge ego. You think you can unceremoniously dump any man and then return whenever you feel like it and just win him back with your irresistible self.

Gabi: Actually, I don't think that, but what I do know is that jake and I, what we had was something-- let's call it special, beyond special. See, our attraction to each other was off the charts.

Jake: Gabi, leave.

Gabi: No, I can't in good conscience leave. You know what? I will admit that we may be over for now. But I do care about you as a friend, and I do think you should know a few things about kate if you're gonna get in even deeper.

Abigail: [Scoffs] I mean, I guess that would explain why she had all of those clippings of us, you know, and why she was trying to break up my parents' marriage and--I don't know-- maybe even why she tried to get you in--in bed with her. But I-I don't really understand why she would blame my dad. I mean, my dad didn't even know she--she existed. My dad would never deliberately turn his back on his own daughter.

Jack: Tiffany rizczech? I've never heard that name in my whole life.

Gwen: Oh, god. Yes, you've heard it. You just didn't bother to remember it, did you? Do you know I remember the first time I said my last name around you, jack? I was waiting for... a flicker of recognition, something, anything. There was nothing.

[Scoffs] You couldn't even bother to remember the name of the woman that you got pregnant.

Jennifer: Okay, gwen, why are you so sure that jack is your father? Do you have any proof?

Gwen: Yes, because as long as I can remember, I heard my mother cursing him out, cursing the name of the man who ruined her life.

Jack: She may have believed that to be true, but... she never told me.

Gwen: You are a bloody liar. Don't you lie. Yes, she did. You know damn well that she did.

Kate: Gabi, you can tell jake whatever the hell you want. I have nothing to hide.

Gabi: No? Oh, so does he know about your days as a hooker, as a home-wrecker, that you tried to kill your ex victor kiriakis with a fireplace poker or your ex's ex chloe lane with a poisoned brownie? Guess not.

Jake: Why the hell are you doing this, gabi?

Gabi: Because kate hasn't filled you in, and I think a person's past is important to how they will react in the present and the future too, so let's keep it going. Drumroll, please. This is actually the--the showstopper. Your girl kate happened to have the kiriakis mansion set on fire and tried to kill her son.

Kate: It wasn't intentional, gabi, and I didn't know lucas was in the house.

Gabi: Do you see the pattern? This is what happens to her exes. I mean, the longest relationship she's ever-- well, let's just say you are bound to be her ex, jake. It's inevitable. I'm just saying, watch your back.

Chad: That's not what gwen said. Gwen said that your dad turned his back on her and her mom.

Abigail: Well, it's not true. I know my dad.

[Chuckles softly]

Chad: Okay, but, um... I mean, your--your dad did walk out on--on your mom and--and you and jj, right?

Abigail: God, god, I just-- ugh, I just need to talk to him and I need to see if it's true. I don't-- that woman cannot be my sister after everything she has done to me.

Chad: Uh, there's-- there's--there's, uh, something else that you need to know.

Gwen: My mum came to salem once upon a time, and she told you all about me.

Jack: Look, I swear to you-- to both of you-- that never happened.

Gwen: Yes, but it did. I remember it. I was just a little girl, but I remember all of it. We were down to our last can of baked beans, and, um, we were about to be evicted from our crappy flat in peoria. Mum said she was going to swallow her pride and she was--she was gonna come beg for your help. So she brought me to salem, and she shoved me in this cockroach-infested motel room that she found, and she just went and spoke to you. Came back crying. Said that you didn't want to speak to her. You were too busy with your wife and your daughter, your precious little princess abigail. You didn't even want to meet me.

Jack: Your mother was lying.

Gwen: No, she was not lying. You had your secretary send her money each month to keep her quiet.

Jack: No, I didn'T.

Gwen: Yes, you did. You know you did.

Jennifer: Okay, okay. What else did your mother tell you, gwen? Did she happen to mention, perhaps, for example, how they met?

Gwen: Yeah. They met in chicago before he moved to salem. Mum was a cocktail waitress. Said that you left her the tip of a lifetime.

Jennifer: He did live in chicago before he moved here. Jack... is any of this true?

[Dramatic music]

Of course you've seen underwear that fits like this...

Kate: You know, actually, it boggles the mind that you would have the audacity to--[Laughs] To bring up my past with jake. I mean, I-I really don't want to sink to your level, but you are not in a position to throw stones, gabi. Jake, just in case you didn't know, gabi has an ex. She murdered him.

Gabi: If I didn't kill him, he would've killed me. You helped me cover the murder up.

Kate: What about the time that you almost blew up all of salem over your lust for chad?

Gabi: That was an accident.

Kate: Yeah. And then you managed to control julie williams' pacemaker with an app on your phone, and you--you got out of that because you leveraged your bone marrow. Then, of course, the fact that you tried to destroy both eli and lani's marriage and--and chad and abigail's, and then, ah, ah, you managed to get her sent to an asylum, didn't you?

Gabi: Because I went to prison for a crime she committed.

Kate: Yeah, and then you drugged her and you got her sent back there.

Gabi: No. No, no, no, no. You know, I am-- I'm sick of this. I own up to what I did, but I did not do that. I was acquitted by a jury of my peers.

Kate: In salem at the stefano dimera memorial courthouse.

Gabi: Dr. Rolf set me up.

Kate: Dr. Rolf was in prison during that time.

Gabi: He supplied the drug. I don't know who got it, but it wasn't me.


Jack: Is it possible I had a one-night stand more than 30 years ago and fathered a child without knowing about it?

Jennifer: You don't remember whether you slept with a cocktail waitress or not?

Gwen: Oh, god, yeah, of course he doesn't remember. I'm sure there was probably a parade of them. Let's, um-- let's look at his stats here, shall we? Okay, yeah, well, we all know what he did to his sister-in-law, kayla. So is he a man of honor and fidelity? Or is he a man who uses women and throws them away, cheap bastard who-- I don't know-- reuses paper towels and lowballs his employees, the man who keeps the heat at 60 degrees even all through winter, the man who stopped sending those meager checks the day that mum died... even though I still needed to eat? He is a man who does not care, dodges responsibility, and abandons his family when they need him the most.

Jack: I'm sorry about your mother.

Gwen: Yeah. I'm sure you were sorry then too. You were probably so happy to get her off your payroll.

Jack: All right! All right. Enough of your tale of woe. Interruption, please. One small question. In your version of events, where did the accent come from, north side of peoria?

Gwen: [Laughs]

Jack: Huh?

Gwen: Okay, well, mum used the money that you gave her to buy us plane tickets to england. There, we crashed with one of her friends, and, um, well, the money all went up her nose anyway, so... when she died, I became a ward of the state. Quite dickensian, yes.

Jack: I didn't--I didn't--

Gwen: Ugh, and then one day...

[Sighs] I saw the byline in the newspaper when you had moved to england, and, oh, I'm so stupid. God, I'm so stupid.

[Laughs] Do you know I actually thought that you were coming to find me? But, of course, you didn'T.

Jack: Gwen, y-y-you got to believe me. I-I may not remember every woman I ever slept with more than 30 years ago, but I would remember if someone told me I had a child. I would remember if I paid your mother to go away. It didn't happen. I wouldn't let it happen!

Gwen: Yes, you did! I am living proof! I am right here standing in front of you. I lived a wretched life of misery and deprivation while bloody abigail was the golden child. So I told myself when I get old enough, I am going to find you and I'm gonna make you pay. I'm gonna make you pay for what you did to me. Except this time, you don't get to throw me away. I'm not going anywhere. I'm here to stay... dad.

[Dramatic music]

Chad: Gwen is very dangerous.

Abigail: Yeah, I kind of figured that out on my own.

Chad: Okay, you--you don't-- you don't know the whole story, all right? You don't know how all of this started. Rolf said that--

Abigail: Rol--I mean, how does she even know rolf? How are the two of them connected?

Chad: She found him because of a drug that he had developed, the--the drug that gave you the hallucinations.

Abigail: The--the drug that made me crazy again, but I mean... we already know that had to be gabi. Are you saying...

Chad: It was gwen.

Allie: I remember tripp being in my flat but not what happened to me. So I don't think I'd be a very credible witness, especially because I was so adamant about it being tripp this entire time, and, well, now it could be someone else.

[Soft dramatic music]

Ben: Have you thought about talking to your grandmother about maybe using hypnosis to try to help you remember?

Allie: Yeah, rafe and nicole suggested that too.

Ben: But?

Allie: I was drunk. I mean, I don't even know if I was conscious. Besides, they can't even press criminal charges because it happened in london. And more than that... I don't know if I can relive that night, you know, go through everything all over again.


Ben: I get that.

[Sighs] I had to relive some pretty horrible things under hypnosis, had to face things that I never wanted to face. But remembering is what-- it just enabled me to put that all behind me. It's a really personal decision. I'm sure you'll make the right choice.

Allie: Thanks.

Ben: Yeah. Good luck.

Allie: Hey, ben? Thanks for talking to me.

Charlie: Claire, no one believes me. But you know me. You know I would never do the things that they're saying that I did.

Claire: Well, I told you, charlie, I don't know you.

Charlie: Yes, you do. You're my soul mate. Claire, my own brother, my own mother is against me. I have nothing and nobody else. I need you.

Ben: Claire. What's going on here?

I'm a performer.

Gabi: Look, if anybody else brings up what happens to abigail--you know what? I get it. I get it. You feel threatened-- and with good reason.

Kate: Gabi, when you first came back to salem and you walked in on us, jake told you that he cared for me. And still you threw yourself at him. After everything I've done for you...

Gabi: You took him away from me.

Kate: You left him.

Gabi: And now I'm back. Jake and i had something before you got in the middle. See, there's unfinished business between the two of us. Jake, I think-- I think you know that too.

Gwen: [Sighs] I know what you're thinking.

[Clears throat] Probably thinking that you spawned a classless bitch.


Jack: No, that's not what I'm thinking.

Gwen: Mm. Probably right, though. You see, I didn't get to go to nice schools, and I didn't have mummy and daddy around to get me a reporting job at the family newspaper, did I?

Jack: I understand why you're lashing out at me, but I'm telling you, your mother lied to you.

Gwen: Yeah? Prove it. Why don't you take a paternity test? I bet you won'T. Not that I even trust a paternity test in this stupid town anyway.

Jack: In other words, I can't prove it. So what do you want me to do? Do you want money?

Gwen: How dare you?

[Tense music]

How dare you? You don't get to pay me off the way you paid off my mother. Don't you see all I wanted was for you to care, for you to give a damn about what you have done? But I can see now that we are far past that. I wanted a dad. But I do not want one like you. God, you have ruined my life, but as miserable as you have made my life, I promise you I will make yours worse.

[Suspenseful music]

Abigail: Gwen drugged me?


Chad: Gwen was at julie's place that night. She slipped the stuff into your champagne.

Abigail: But that was months before she was even here.

Chad: That was months before we knew she was here, all right? She's been plotting this for a long time, maybe your whole life.

Abigail: What did I do to deserve this?

Chad: Nothing. Nothing.

Abigail: Do you think it's true?

Chad: I know we don't have any reason to trust rolf, but it would explain everything that's been going on with gwen the last few months.

Abigail: [Sighs] I guess it does. I mean...

Chad: I just thought that you should know.

Abigail: Thank you.

Chad: And I know this doesn't change anything. I'm just--I'm sorry that you have to go through all of this...alone.

Abigail: So am I. We are the thrivers.

Jake: Gabi, like I said a few minutes ago, get out of my office, please.

Gabi: Babe--babe, i understand you have to say that for her sake, so I'll go. I'll go. But, um, just think about my proposal--both of my proposals.

[Dramatic music]

Jack: What are you going to do now?

Gwen: You'll find out. But just like you managed to throw my mother out all those years ago, I now have the satisfaction of doing the same to you. So please get the hell out of my room now, thank you.

Jennifer: Jack, let's-- let's go. Let's go.

Jack: You believe me, don't you?

Jennifer: Yes.

Jack: I'm so sorry. After everything with kate, to drag you through this?

Jennifer: The person I think we should be worried about right now is abigail. I mean, she's still reeling from what chad did, and-- and now she's about to find out that the person who--who set out to ruin her life claims to be her sister.

Abigail: You're right. I want you by my side. I don't want to be going through this alone. But because of what gwen did, I don't really feel like I can trust you right now.

Chad: I'm gonna work really hard to change that. I'll do absolutely anything I can to make it up to you.

Abigail: I can't do this right now.


Chad: Um... can I say--uh, can I say good night to the kids?

Abigail: They're already asleep.

Chad: Okay. All right, next time, then.

Abigail: Mm-hmm. And I would really like it if you would call first, because I-I would rather not be here. Good night.

Chad: Night.

Charlie: Oh, we were just talking.

Ben: You're done talking. Come on, I'll walk you home.

Charlie: It was important.

Ben: It's over.

Allie: Hey, grandma, it's allie. I was just wondering if I could see you in the morning. I want you to hypnotize me so I can try to maybe remember everything that happened in london. Ever wonder what retinol dermatologists use

Jake: I know what it looked like when you walked in here. But I need you to know that I did not give gabi the idea that I'm the least bit interested in her.

Kate: I know. Gabi has a way of just grabbing what she wants.

Jake: Yeah. Sorry this isn't the celebration you had in mind. But maybe we can fix that. And gabi being back in town, you know, that doesn't matter to me. You--you do know that, right?

[Cork pops]

Kate: Mm-hmm. Right. I know that.

Jake: Here's yours.

[Soft dramatic music]

New beginnings.

[Glasses clink]

Chad: Gabi?

Gabi: The one and only, now that abigail has retired her alternate personality.

Chad: Well, this day keeps getting better and better.

Gabi: Yes, yes, I did hear the good news, that you're out at dimera and jake's in. Now you know what it felt like when shin fired me.

Chad: I wasn't fired. Never mind. Uh... I, uh-- I owe you an apology. You weren't the one that drugged abigail. Uh, I'm sorry.

Gabi: Hold on, wait a second. Does this mean you know who did it?

Chad: Yeah, it was jake's ex gwen.

Gabi: What? Why?

Chad: Uh, it's a-- it's a long story.

Jack: [Sighs]

Abigail: Daddy, I need to ask you a question about gwen. Um, chad was just here, and he said that, um--

Jack: She-- she thinks I'm her father.

Abigail: How did you know?

Jennifer: Gwen just told us the same thing.

Abigail: Is it true?

Jack: A lot of the things she said are absolutely not true. But as to whether or not I'm her father... honest to god, I don't know.

[Papers fluttering]

Gwen: [Crying]
