Ciara: Ben? Oh, my god, ben. Is that really you?
Ben: It's me.
Ciara: Are you really here?
Ben: Yes, it's me. I'm sorry it took me so long to get here, but I'm here now, and I'm gonna get you outta here.
Ciara: I thought I'd never see you again. But you found me, you finally found me.
[Knocking on glass]
Ciara: Ben? Oh.
Evan: Breakfast. Not just gruel-- gruel with raisins.
Ciara: Mm, I'm good.
Evan: Suit yourself. I also got a copy of today's paper. Thought you might wanna know the latest from salem.
Ciara: And why would I care about that when I'm locked up down here?
Evan: Well, it's pretty big news.
Ciara: About what?
Evan: Your husband.
John: Good morning, sweetheart.
Marlena: Oh, my gosh, john. I just meant to close my eyes for a moment.
John: You're a big deal around here. They let you stay way past visiting hours.
Marlena: [Laughs] How do you feel?
John: With you by my side, never better.
Marlena: You blacked out yesterday. We have to find out what caused that. Oh, hello, there. We were just thinking about you. Do you have john's test results yet?
Sarah: I do. Um, the good news is, I found no evidence of a new aneurysm.
John: And the bad news is?
Sami: Really? You had to keep me here all night long?
Rafe: It's not my fault if belle didn't pick up when you called.
Sami: Okay, but she didn't know that it was me calling, I'm sure of it.
Rafe: Uh-huh. Well, I will let you try her again.
Sami: Thank you.
Rafe: But first, I'm gonna give you one chance to tell me whether you killed charlie dale.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Sami: I thought we had this conversation already.
Rafe: Yeah, oh, yeah, we did. Last night at charlie's apartment when I walk in, and he is lying on the floor, dead from a gunshot wound, and then you leisurely stroll out of the bathroom, drying your hands on a towel, and I still wanna know what the hell happened between the two of you before I got there.
Sami: I am not saying anything without a lawyer.
Rafe: You are making a big mistake.
Sami: May I please use your phone?
Rafe: Fine. I'll go check and see if the ballistics report is ready.
Sami: Belle, I'm so glad you picked up. Thank god. I'm at the salem pd, and I really need your help.
Belle: Why would I do anything to help you after the hell you just put me through?
Sami: Look, I understand that you're still mad about what happened with jan, but I'm family for god's sake. I'm your sister!
Belle: Oh, no. You don't get to play that card with me.
Sami: Maybe I don't, but I'm going to anyway. Please, belle, you have to get down here. I need your help. Lives are at stake.
Sarah: Well, there is no bad news, it's just, I don't have an explanation yet as to why you blacked out.
John: Even after all those tests?
Sarah: Well, normally, when people lose consciousness temporarily, it's usually related to a sudden drop in blood pressure.
Marlena: Oh, well, I took his blood pressure last night. It was high.
Sarah: Yes, I noted that.
[Sighs] It could be possible that he's experiencing swings. If you think back to last night, was there anything that could've caused john's pressure to spike?
Marlena: Yeah, um... well, there, uh, there was a-- upsetting conversation about his granddaughter that--that did upset him.
Sarah: Is that it?
John: Yeah, that was it. Hey, look. I really appreciate all your concern here, but you know what I think? I think this is much ado about nothing, so...
[Laughs] Why don't you just cut me loose here and go take care of some patients who really need some help?
Sarah: [Chuckles] You're right, you may be totally fine, but just to be safe, I am going to keep you a little longer for observation.
Marlena: I think that's a very good idea.
Sarah: I will be back to check in on you soon.
John: I want outta here, doc.
Marlena: I know. I know that. But I love you too much to take a chance.
[Phone beeps] Oh.
John: [Sighs] What's that?
Marlena: Uh, oh, it, uh--ben. He wants to see me right away. I'll tell him it'll have to wait.
John: No, no, no, no, no. You--you go, I'm good.
John: Yeah, really. Really, now, come on. I mean, I'm in a safe place here, right? I'm good, go. Go.
Marlena: I will. Be right back.
Orpheus: Bravo, christian. You must be very proud of the little power play you pulled-- going rogue on me with ciara. But we have a plan, and we're gonna follow through. That girl is exchanged for cash, and we disappear. Now, stop playing games and call me back, you insolent--
Clyde: Talking to your son again, aren't you?
Ciara: [Grunts] There's news about ben?
Evan: Thought you didn't care about what's going on--
Ciara: Just shut up. Give me the paper.
Evan: Whoa, calm down, jeez. Apparently, he was driving way too fast on your motorcycle, and without a helmet. Took a sharp turn, went flying. Bam, cracked his skull. Think you're managing your moderate
Ciara: [Gasping] No, this is--this is a lie. Okay, ben is not dead.
Evan: You're accusing "the spectator" of printing fake news?
Ciara: Uh-uh, I don't-- I don't--I don't believe this. No, no, no, ben would never ever get on a motorcycle without a helmet on.
Evan: Ben thinks you're dead. Remember? Maybe he decided to join you. If, uh, you wanna borrow a dagger, let me know.
Orpheus: Weston. I thought I warned you about sneaking up on me.
Clyde: [Laughs] I'm right, aren't I? You were giving your boy holy hell, just like you did the last time.
Orpheus: Back off.
Clyde: Oh, my, you're a little touchy this morning, milo. Did you skip your meditation?
Orpheus: [Chuckles] It vexes me when plebians who've been asked to mind their own business refuse to do so.
Clyde: You think I'm too stupid to realize you and your boy are up to something that involves ciara? Like I told you before, I'm gonna figure it out.
Orpheus: [Chuckles] Not bloody likely.
Clyde: Oh, that's funny you should mention blood.
Rafe: Good luck.
Sami: I wasn't sure you'd come.
Belle: Ah, well, curiosity got the best of me. Rafe wouldn't tell me what he was holding you for.
Sami: It's all a big misunderstanding.
Belle: Rafe's the police commissioner. He doesn't take people into custody for misunderstandings.
Sami: He's a good guy, he's my ex-husband, he's my friend, but he does overreact.
Belle: What does he think you did, sami?
Sami: Rafe suspects that i murdered charlie dale. My plaque psoriasis...
Allie: I want to see my mother.
Rafe: Yeah, your mom's busy. She's actually in there talking to belle.
Allie: Wait. Aunt belle is representing her?
Rafe: We'll see.
Allie: Why would my aunt agree to be my mom's lawyer? I mean, she hates her for turning jan spears loose on our family.
Rafe: Right, but you know how your mother is when she wants something.
Allie: Right, she doesn't ever take no for an answer.
Sami: Belle? You okay?
Belle: Yeah. Oh, my god. Charlie dale is dead?
Sami: You hadn't heard?
Belle: Should I have?
Sami: I thought it'd be in the news or that maybe shawn would have told you.
Belle: Well, he hasn't called me, so I assume he doesn't know. Well, what happened?
Sami: Charlie dale was...
[Clears throat] Was shot to death.
Belle: Oh, my god.
Sami: Well, you can't be that surprised, given what that monster has done.
Belle: Well, no, I-- I'm not, I'm--sami, what am I doing here?
Sami: I told you. Belle, I need a lawyer.
Belle: No, I mean, why did rafe bring you in?
Sami: Oh, well, because rafe found me at charlie dale's apartment with his dead body.
Belle: So did you kill him?
Roman: All right, wait. Charlie dale. Charlie dale was out walking around.
John: That smug little sob. Told me that claire invited him over, tricked him into confessing to a crime that, of course, he didn't commit. But he stopped her before she could go to the cops, and I grabbed that little bastard, and I said, "what is that supposed to mean?" He said, "no, no, no, no, no. We're just talking. We just talked, we talked." Of course I didn't believe a word he said, so doc and I went over to check claire out for ourselves.
Roman: She's okay, right?
John: Thank god she's okay! But I'm telling you, roman, when I heard what that bastard did to claire, I just-- I lost it. I mean, I totally lost it. Doc tried to calm me down, but I--I couldn't let it go, so i decided to drive over and pay charlie a visit.
Roman: Hope you gave him hell.
John: Truth is, I don't-- I don't know what I did, roman. 'Cause that's when I blacked out in my car.
Orpheus: [Sighs] Okay.
[Laughs] Okay, clyde. Let's talk. Let's talk about this.
Clyde: I'm done talking.
Ben: So rhodes' apartment was cleaned out, but shawn and i found a box of his stuff in the basement.
Marlena: What kind of stuff?
Ben: It just looked like a bunch of junk to me, but when i told claire about it, she insisted that I bring something back from rhodes' box to give to susan banks, hoping that maybe it would help her with one of her visions of where ciara could be and where rhodes is holding her.
Marlena: And did that work?
Ben: After claire and I went through everything, we found this book. A copy of "alice's adventures in wonderland." Claire said that she had the book when she was a kid. She loved it, and she had the sequel.
Marlena: The sequel being "through the looking-glass."
Ben: Yes. And when I heard that, I got hit by this flashback from the night before, this dream I had. And in my dream, ciara was holding a copy of "through the looking-glass." That's what she was reading. And it was an exact match to the one that we found in rhodes' box. Same font, same cover art.
Marlena: So it was part of a set.
Ben: Exactly. So we figured that wherever the hell ciara was, she had rhodes' books, and we needed to bring his copy to susan.
Marlena: Did that work?
Ben: Not really. Not well--I mean, it was weird. Susan was so enthusiastic about helping us the first time, and this last time, it was like she didn't even want to help us. She didn't even care.
Marlena: No, she's just very focused on brady right now.
Ben: I'm not blaming susan. I actually think I found another way I might be able to track down ciara.
Marlena: You did? Tell me.
Ben: Last night, I had another dream of her, and I found her in this room behind this glass wall. And in susan's vision, she said that she saw ciara inside a glass box.
Marlena: I remember you telling me about that.
Ben: Ciara came right up to the glass. I--I could see her right in front of me. We were so close, it was almost like I could touch her.
Marlena: Okay. It is the dream you wanna talk about?
Ben: No. Dr. Evans, I want you to hypnotize me again so I can find my wife. To be a thriver
Ben: You have helped me so many times using hypnosis. I know you can help me again if you just put me under and you get me back inside of that room.
Marlena: Ben, it doesn't work that way.
Ben: What do you mean?
Marlena: I mean, if being in that room, finding that room with a glass wall and seeing ciara, if that were a real memory, then I could hypnotize you and take you back there. But I--listen to me. I can't take you someplace you've never been.
Ben: I have been there. Dr. Evans, I'm telling you, I don't know how, but I've been there. I was there. I saw her through the glass, and I could put my hand-- I felt the glass on my hand.
Marlena: Do you know how much I want to help you?
Ben: Then do it! Please! Please.
[Sighs] Maybe it won't work. Maybe I won't remember anything else. But no matter what anybody says, I know in my soul that ciara and I are connected. And I know that my wife is out there, and she's desperately trying to connect with me because she needs my help, and I really need yours. Please. Would you at least try?
Ciara: [Exhales] No, no, no. No, it's not true. This can't be true. Oh, my god, ben. Please, give me a sign. Give me something, anything to let me know that you're still alive, please?
Marlena: Okay. We've done this before. Take a deep breath. Let me know when you're ready. Good. Okay. Deep breath now. As you exhale, let all the tension flow out of your body. Another breath. Clear your mind completely. Let everything go.
Allie: Look, I know my mom has done some really crazy things, and I know that you found her in charlie's apartment, but do you have any actual evidence that she's guilty?
Rafe: Well, I should have the ballistic and forensic reports soon, as well as the autopsy, and once I see those, I will be able to tell whether or not the da can charge your mom.
Allie: Right. The same da who refused to charge charlie for assaulting me.
Rafe: The charges were not refused. It was outside of the jurisdiction. Listen, allie. You know that I wanted justice for you. I wanted charlie to go to jail. The very least, I wanted him to admit publicly what he did to you so you would have some-- some vindication. I'm sorry. Listen, I am sorry the way that things have turned out.
Allie: I'm not. And with no disrespect, I don't think you should be sorry either. Everybody knows that charlie dale got exactly what he deserved. So I mean, why can't you just drop it? I mean, why does it matter who killed him?
Sami: Did I kill charlie dale? I can't believe you just asked me that.
Belle: You just said rafe found you in his apartment.
Sami: Oh, unbelievable, belle.
Belle: I can't help you if you won't answer the question.
Sami: I'm not saying anything unless you guarantee that I have confidentiality. Are you gonna represent me?
Belle: I haven't decided yet. I need more information.
Sami: [Scoffs] Of course it's too much to think that my family would have my back. Okay, okay, fine. What do you want to know?
Belle: Why don't we just start with what you were doing in charlie's apartment.
Sami: Lucas called, and he told me that they were dropping the charges against charlie dale because he claimed that it was consensual. I'm not going to let that scum get away with what he did to my daughter, so I jumped on a plane, and when I landed, I went straight to charlie dale's apartment to confront him.
Belle: Confront him or shoot him?
Sami: Will you be my lawyer?
Belle: Answer the question.
Sami: Tell me you'll represent me.
Belle: You are suspected of murder, and you're trying to negotiate?
Belle: I know that you think the whole world revolves around you and that I've got nothing better to do than sit here and solve your problems, but I am done! I mean it, sami. You stall me one more time, and you're on your own. If you want my help, you are gonna answer the damn question. Did you shoot charlie dale? Got it?
John: Charlie dale is dead?
Roman: Says here it was a gunshot wound. Cops do have a suspect in custody. Don't say who.
Sami: Do you honestly think I could murder someone?
Belle: You've shot multiple people, sami.
Sami: Yeah, but only with good reason! I mean, bernardi was gonna kill rafe. Ej was trying to take my kids away from me, and--and you know what alan harris did.
Belle: What about what you've done? All of the selfish and reckless things you've done to hurt me and shawn and eric and mom and now allie?
Sami: Okay, I was trying to help allie.
Belle: You were trying to get custody of your grandson, so you orchestrated jan spears' release from a mental institution so she could testify against nicole.
Sami: The judge needed to understand who nicole walker really is.
Belle: Right. So why not accomplish that by unleashing a psychopath on your family?
Sami: I'm sorry.
Belle: You're sorry? She terrorized everyone at my wedding. She held me at gunpoint. She could have killed me.
Sami: I made a mistake, and I am so sorry. But I did it out of love for my children. I did it because I love them more than anything in the world.
Belle: I know. I believe that. I also believe that when you found out that allie's rapist wasn't gonna face any consequences for the absolute horror he inflicted on your daughter, you must have been enraged, which is why I can see you taking the law into your own hands. So I'm only going to ask you this one more time.
Sami: No. No, I did not kill charlie dale. When I got to his apartment, he was already dead.
Belle: What about the gun?
Sami: You got just what you deserve. What about it? It was on the floor. I didn't touch it.
Belle: Don't lie to me.
Sami: I'm not lying.
Belle: You better not be because if I find out you've told me one false thing, I'll quit. I mean it. No surprises.
Sami: I understand.
Belle: So you're in the apartment. Then what?
Sami: [Sighs] Then rafe showed up. He starts grilling me. He's giving me the third degree, and he drags me down here and kept me here overnight, which is ridiculous. I should be free to go because I am completely innocent.
Belle: Well, if that's the case, you don't need my help. Just tell rafe what happened.
Sami: Oh, as if the truth matters around here? Belle! [Scoffs] Rafe's own sister went to prison for a murder she didn't commit. I was almost executed once!
Belle: Well, you just said you didn't kill him, so--
Sami: Nobody's gonna take my word for anything. I mean, everyone's gonna believe that I killed charlie dale because of what happened to allie. Everyone's gonna believe the worst about me, just like they always do.
Belle: I wonder why.
Sami: You're still not over what happened with jan, but you cannot let me go to prison for murder because of that. Jan can't come after you now. She's in a coma!
Belle: [Scoffs] So I should just get over it, right?
Sami: Yes, you should!
Belle: Okay, maybe that would be easier if my father wasn't still facing charges for strangling jan because she told him that I was dead. You know he is still suffering because of the damage you did?
Sami: You could hate me for the rest of your life. You'd never have to speak to me again, belle, but right now, I need your help. This is serious. I'm scared. I am scared of what will happen if you don't help me.
Allie: Can't you just let this go?
Rafe: Let it go? Just drop a murder investigation because the victim was a criminal?
Allie: The victim? Charlie dale is not a victim. I'm the victim! Ava was the victim. Claire almost was too!
Rafe: I understand your frustration. Okay, I do. But as police commissioner, I need to make sure that the person who killed charlie is held accountable. Okay?
Allie: Even if that person is your ex-wife?
Clyde: Let's find that last number you dialed. Bingo.
Evan: Stop calling me, dad.
Clyde: No, this ain't your dad.
Evan: Who is this?
Clyde: I'm a friend of your old man'S. He asked me to give you a call.
Marlena: Good. You're doing great. Listen to the sound of my voice. Let me guide you. Tell me about the room where ciara's being held.
Ben: There's a glass wall and a bed. I'm not sure of anything else. I'm just focused on ciara.
Marlena: Okay, okay. Take a moment now. Look around. Tell me anything else you can see.
Ben: Book. "Through the looking-glass." Oh, my god.
Marlena: What is it, ben? Discover the replenishing power
Marlena: Ben, what is it? What do you see?
Ben: It's another book. "Romeo and juliet." I dreamed that ciara and i performed the play together. I knew every single word, even though I never even read it.
Marlena: Mm. What is ciara doing right now?
Ben: She's on the bed. She looks so sad. I think she's crying. God, I need to find her. I have to get ciara right now.
Ciara: [Sobbing] Please, ben. Oh, my god! I need to know that you're still alive.
Ciara: Oh, thank god! Thank god, ben, you're alive.
Ben: Of course I'm alive. Of course I'm alive, baby. I'm gonna take you home.
Ciara: Oh, my god, I was so scared. He said that you died in a motorcycle accident.
Ben: What? Who--who said that? Rhodes?
Ciara: No, rhodes is dead. He killed him.
Ben: He killed him. Who's he? Ciara, what are you talking about? Who's keeping you in that room?
Clyde: Well, orpheus has had an unfortunate injury.
Evan: Is it serious?
Clyde: Well, it's serious enough he can't move forward with your plans for ciara brady or weston.
Evan: Who is this again?
Clyde: My name is pete. Your father didn't mention me?
Clyde: Well, suffice to say, he trusts me to move forward in his absence. Carry the ball over the goal line, so to speak. So why don't you just bring me up to speed on what you got planned, and we'll take it from there?
Rafe: Allie, you know I love you and your mother, but unfortunately I cannot just make this thing magically disappear. But I do promise you that I will personally oversee every aspect of this investigation and make sure that it is done right.
[Phone beeps] All right? There, the preliminary ballistic results are in.
Allie: Can I please just talk to my mom? Just for one second. I'll be quick.
Rafe: I think it's better if you let her finish with belle. All right? I will let you know if there is any news.
Allie: But can I--
Rafe: No buts, come on. I'll walk you out.
Sami: If you won't do it for me, do it for my kids. If I go to prison, what's gonna happen to them? Please, you do this-- belle, if you help me now, I will owe you for the rest of my life.
Belle: Don't make me regret it.
Sami: So you'll represent me? Belle, thank you! Thank you, belle! Oh, you're the best! Thank you so much! You're the best sister ever.
Rafe: Oh. Wasn't expecting this.
Sami: Yeah, well, my sister's gonna represent me.
Rafe: That true?
Belle: Yes, it is. And I'd like you to release my sister immediately.
Rafe: Afraid I can't do that.
Belle: Why not? I know you found her at the crime scene, but you can't arrest her. She assures me you don't have any evidence against her.
Rafe: Yeah. Actually I do.
Evan: I don't know who this is, but you're full of it. My father knows that I want no part of his plan, and I will never ransom that bitch back to her rich grandfather.
Clyde: You bailed on orpheus?
Evan: Damn right I did. Ciara cost me my son, and now i have the chance to make her pay. I can watch her cry, hear her scream and feel her suffer. And I am going to enjoy every second of it.
Ben: Ciara, please, tell me who killed rhodes.
[Phone ringing] Unknown caller. Ciara?
Clyde: Hey, ollie, it's me.
Ben: Dad? This isn't a good time.
Clyde: No, no, no, you're gonna want to hear this. It's about your wife.
Evan: Still upset about your dead husband?
Ciara: Ben's not dead, you stupid jerk. That paper is fake.
Evan: They say denial is the first stage of grief. Reality will set in soon enough.
Ciara: Reality? The reality is that ben is alive, and he's coming to get me. And that news is as real as news gets.
John: No updates. So what the hell happened to charlie?
[Knock at door]
Allie: Hi, grandpa. I was just about to call you, but henry started fussing.
Roman: Not a problem. I, uh, I assumed you were gonna call about charlie. I was with john when I got the news. I just wanted to come by and make sure you're okay.
Allie: Uh, yeah, I'm okay. It's just a lot to process.
Roman: I'm sure it is, sweetheart. No doubt about that. I did read where they got a suspect in custody. Didn't give a name.
Allie: I know who it is.
Roman: You do?
Allie: Yeah. It's my mom.
Sami: [Scoffs] You can't have any evidence against me. It's impossible. I didn't kill charlie dale.
Belle: Okay, sami, just let me do my job. What do you have?
Rafe: Well, so far, just the preliminary ballistics report.
Belle: Okay, well, that shouldn't matter. She just assured me she never touched the gun.
Rafe: Then why are her fingerprints all over it?
