Abigail: Well, I hope I didn't make you crazy.

Chad: What?

Abigail: I just talked about gwen the whole session, which I guess she's the reason we went to couples' therapy, which, you know, really helps, by the way--me, anyway.

Chad: How so?

Abigail: I had an epiphany and realized that I'd been blaming you for something that never would've happened if it weren't for gwen's lies. And there is no way in hell I'm letting that woman have the satisfaction of tearing--

Chad: We've had this conversation, all right? It's the only reason you want to work on our marriage--

[Phone rings]

Abigail: Sorry.

[Phone rings]

[Sighs] Uh, hey, dad.

Jack: Sweetheart, I was hoping we could talk, if you were free.

Abigail: Um, yeah, I am. What's up?

Jack: I'd rather discuss it in person.

Abigail: Okay, um, I'll be-- I'll be right there.

Theo: Well, I just found out that my ex-girlfriend is not who I thought she was.

Julie: Oh, well, who is she?

Theo: She's paulina's daughter.

Julie: Paulina has a daughter?

Theo: It was news to me, too. But apparently she does. Her name is chanel.

Chanel: I almost had him, but my entire family is conspiring against me.

Xander: What's your problem, sweetheart?

Chanel: Sweetheart, really?

Xander: Never mind, just keep walking.

Chanel: It's fine, I'm just having one of those days.

Xander: Well, join the club. Hey, you know what they say.

[Groans] Misery loves company.

Chanel: Excuse me?

Xander: Oh, it's no fun drinking alone.

Chanel: Well, I am with you on that, but I don't even know you.

Xander: Xander kiriakis.

Chanel: Chanel dupree.


[Suspenseful music]

Ben: [Sighs] Hey, I'm gonna grab some more tea. Do you want some?

Claire: Good idea. More caffeine. That'll help.

Ben: I know, you're right. I just--

Claire: Hate the waiting, I know. But, ben, I meant what I said before. If the hypnosis wasn't working, I am certain that my grandma would've come out by now, which means that ciara is in there right now remembering how much she loves you. I know it.

Ciara: [Breathing deeply]

Marlena: I'm so sorry. Now you understand why I didn't want to tell you.

Ciara: My best friend, my family not only tried to sleep with my boyfriend, but she tried to set me on fire?

Marlena: Let me try to explain the circumstances.

Ciara: So you can make excuses for her?

Marlena: Of course not.

Ciara: I'm out of here.

Marlena: Ciara!

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

[Soft orchestration]

[Pensive music]

Gwen: Hello.

Chad: What are you doing here?

Gwen: Harold let me in, actually. Has he put on a bit of weight?

Chad: All right, if you're-- if you're looking for abby, she's not here.

Gwen: It's because she's with our father.

Chad: How do you know that?

Gwen: Um, jack has summoned her for a little chat. It's actually why I'm here.

Abigail: Hey!

Jack: Hey.

Abigail: Dad, hey, you okay? Is--is mom okay?

Jack: Yes--oh, yes, your mother's fine. She sends her love. It is way more complicated settling laura's estate than she ever thought, but she'll be home as soon as she can.

Abigail: Well, I'm glad she's with uncle mike.

Jack: Yeah, yeah.

Abigail: So, you know, what's going on? Why did you want to see me?

Jack: Well, abigail, I know. What happened with gwen in the dimera tunnels--I know.

Gwen: [Laughs] Oh, my god. Oh, my god, of course, yeah. Of course she told you, yeah. And I'm sure she cried big crocodile tears about what a victim she is, what a heartless bitch I am, 'cause, you know, she'd do whatever she can to turn you against me.

[Laughs] And it worked, didn't it? It's my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.

Xander: Well, are you gonna-- are you gonna drink it, or are you just gonna stand there looking at it?

Chanel: [Scoffs] As much as I could use a drink, I'm pretty particular about hygiene.

Xander: Alcohol kills germs.

Chanel: Still, a glass would be nice--or two and a little ice.

Xander: Well, I'm staying at the salem inn. We could head over there. If we're lucky, maybe they've replenished the mini bar by now.

Chanel: You're staying at the salem inn? What a coincidence. So am I.

Xander: Well, what are we waiting for?

[Sighs deeply] Come on.

Jack: Abigail...

Abigail: [Scoffs]

Jack: Gwen could never turn me against you. It is you I'm worried about.

Abigail: What exactly did she say?

Jack: That you and gabi kidnapped her and held her hostage, and you--you tried to inject her with this mind-altering drug that she gave you.

Abigail: Okay, well, that's not exactly what happened.

Jack: It's not?

Abigail: No, it's not. Gabi took the syringe away from me before I was ever able to get gwen to admit that she deliberately pushed grandma and murdered her. And don't tell me that she didn't do it on purpose.

Jack: Abigail, you got to--

Abigail: Calm down? Yeah, I need to calm down? I need to just let it all go? I've heard that over and over and over again. Don't know how I'm supposed to do it because the one person that I would turn to to help me get through something like this is dead. And that person happens to be my grandma.

Jack: Abigail... let me help you. Will you do that? There's nothing I want more in the world than to help you past this to heal. I said the same thing to gwen. All I want is to help you two make peace, if you'll let me.

Gwen: Aren't you gonna offer me a drink? Okay, I'll just help myself, then, shall I?

Chad: Do you know why jack wanted to see abigail? He talk to you about it first?

Gwen: It's because of me.

Chad: Of course. You ran to jack about what abigail and gabi did to you, didn't you?

Gwen: No, I hardly went running. I did file a police report, though, but jack is a reporter, so he would've found out anyway.

Chad: And what'd you think would happen? He would disown abigail and anoint you his favorite new daughter?

Gwen: Of course not. He would never turn his back on her. He would to me if he wasn't so obliged and guilty.

Chad: Am I supposed to feel sorry for you now?

Gwen: No. Hardly. I made everyone's life hell. I don't expect jack to just welcome me with open arms after what I did to him and his family.

Chad: That sounds almost... self-aware... remorseful, even. What's your angle here?

Gwen: [Sighs] Chad, there is no angle. I also don't expect abigail to see me as a real sister. But, uh... if I want any sort of chance of having a relationship with my father, then, well, she and I are just gonna have to learn to peacefully coexist.

Chad: Well, I actually agree with you, but if you've come to ask me for my help--

Gwen: No, that's actually not why I'm here. I'm here to talk about you and me.

Ben: When everyone said ciara was dead... I had to believe she was alive... because nothing could be worse than never seeing her again. But I was wrong. 'Cause you know what's worse? It's when I saw that look in her eyes... when she woke up and she saw me... the fear.

Claire: Ben... you fought so hard to bring ciara home, and you know what? She helped you. The dreams you shared, that psychic connection. Look, I am telling you that this amnesia thing, it doesn't stand a chance against that kind of love.

Ben: I hope so.

Claire: Ben, I know so.

Marlena: Ciara.

Ciara: [Scoffs] Well, isn't that perfect? The two psycho killers in each other's arms.

Frank is a fan of fast.

[Door beeps]

Xander: Home, sweet home.

Chanel: Okay.

Xander: Make yourself comfortable.

Chanel: If the owner of this skirt is gonna be unpleasantly surprised to find me here, I'll just go now.

Xander: No, that's-- that's mine.

Chanel: Oh. Maybe I should've asked you for your pronouns.

Xander: Huh?

Chanel: Never mind. I love the whole tartan thing, and I do love a good skirt.

Xander: It's not a skirt. It's--it's a kilt. I was supposed to wear it to my wedding.

Chanel: "Supposed to"?

Xander: Her name was sarah.

Chanel: Was?

Xander: Well, it still is. She left me on my wedding day. She's gone.

Julie: Want another drink?

Theo: I'm--I'm good, thanks. I'm just--I'm just wondering--

Julie: Wondering--what is it?

Theo: Have you heard anything about ciara?

Julie: Well, not today, why?

Theo: Claire said that she finally agreed to let marlena hypnotize her so that she can try to get her memories back.

Julie: Oh, that's wonderful. Oh, I hope it works.

Theo: Yeah, me too.

Julie: You sure?

Claire: Ciara...

Ben: You remember.

Ciara: You know what I remember? Waking up in a cabin that was on fire, claire... unable to move, no way out. I--

Marlena: Ciara, there's so much here you need to know.

Ciara: I know all I need to. You tried to incinerate me? Really? I mean, how is it possible that I could forgive you after you hurt me so badly? Not once, claire, but twice!

Claire: Ciara, you have to understand. I-I wasn't in my right mind then, okay? I panicked. I panicked when you figured out that I was the one who lit that first fire.

Ciara: Wait. First fire? Oh, my god, are you kidding me? Claire, you tried to set me on fire more than once? Honestly, I thought I was getting my floors cleaned.

Abigail: I know that you feel guilty for abandoning gwen, even though you never knew she existed. Got it. So, even though she tried to break up you and mom and me and chad, you know, even though we found out she drugged me, she almost robbed me of my sanity, after she killed grandma...

Jack: Abigail--

Abigail: You are willing to forgive her everything. There's nothing that she could do that would make you disown her, is there?

Jack: Could you disown thomas or charlotte?

Abigail: My kids aren't psychopaths! I'm sorry, okay? And I'm sorry. I know it's unfair for me to ask you to choose between your children, but I don't really see another way forward other than that. You know, maybe, maybe if she didn't live in salem, maybe, maybe if I didn't have to see her face every single day, there could be something. But I don't really think she and I are gonna be the type of sisters that are just gonna sit around and braid each other's hair every day. But I could settle for a lack of open warfare.

Jack: Okay. I'm not asking you to be close to gwen or even forgive her. But would it help you to know that--that she wants to get past this, too?

Abigail: [Scoffs] Did she tell you that?

Jack: Yes.

Abigail: Okay, mm-hmm.

Jack: If gwen wants to extend the olive branch, you think you might find a way to do the same?

Chad: You and me? What are you talking about?

Gwen: [Sighs] Chad, I used you to hurt abigail. You were collateral damage in my revenge scheme against her. You never did anything to me. You didn't deserve that.

Chad: Yeah, neither did abigail.

Gwen: No, I know that now. But I wanted to--to make her pay for taking my father away from me. I was wrong. It wasn't her fault, it wasn't jack's fault, and it certainly-- certainly wasn't your fault. So... I want you to know that even if things don't work out between abigail and I, you need to know that... you did not deserve what I did to you. I'm sorry, chad.

Julie: Theo, if you're concerned about ciara, from what I understand, hypnosis is very safe.

Theo: That's not what I'm worried about.

Julie: Then why so glum? Don't you want ciara to get her memories back?

Theo: Everything's better when she's here.

Claire: Theo, do you still have feelings for ciara?

Theo: It's just--if ciara does get her memories back, a lot of them are not gonna be good ones.

Claire: When you said "twice," I... I thought you remembered.

Ciara: I was talking about the time you almost slept with tripp, claire.


Claire: I am so sorry.

Ciara: For what? You're sorry because I survived?

Claire: No! No.

Marlena: Ciara, you need to go back to your room.

Ben: Wait, dr. Evans. I don't--I don't understand. Ciara says that--she says that she remembers the cabin. Why not anything else?

Marlena: I was taking her back to the first time she was with you in the cabin, and she actually went back to the second time.

Ciara: I remember waking up, and there were flames everywhere, and I couldn't move my leg. I was stuck, I was so sure that I was gonna die. Claire, I've never been more terrified in my life! Don't touch me! Don't touch me!

Ben: Please! Ciara, listen to me. Look at me, please. You said that you remember the cabin, right? You remember the cabin, you don't remember anything about you and me?

Ciara: No! Not a single thing.

Chanel: Want to talk about it?

Xander: I'd rather drink. Bottoms up and all that.

Chanel: [Coughs] What is this?

Xander: It's just a mix of whatever's left, but it's probably an acquired taste. If you don't want it, more for me.

Chanel: You might want to slow down a bit.

Xander: Ahh. If you walked in on your fiancée naked in bed with her ex-husband, would you be "slowing down"?

Chanel: I have a better idea.

Xander: Better than drinking? I don't think so.

Chanel: Food. My mother ordered a ton of room service for some business meeting. I'll go grab some of the leftovers, okay? I'll be right back.

Xander: Please. Don't go.

Chad: Did I hear you right? Did you just apologize to me?

Gwen: I did.

Chad: Who are you, and what did you do with gwen rizczech?

Gwen: Well, technically, it's deveraux.

Chad: Yeah, well, deverauxs aren't exactly known for their strong code of ethics either. Not that I should talk.

Gwen: Well, you, chad dimera, you're not like the rest of your family. I will never forget how very kind you were to me when your brother climbed into bed with gabi.

Chad: [Clears throat] Yeah, mostly because I hated gabi.

Gwen: And mostly because you're just a good bloke. And I took advantage of that. And I'm sorry.

Chad: Seriously, what are you up to?

Gwen: Nothing. Honestly, I'm being completely sincere.

Chad: Yeah, or you--you're just working on your next plot to destroy our lives.

Gwen: I deserve that. Although, if I am being honest, I do have an ulterior motive.

Abigail: You know, there are things that gwen has done... that I can't forgive, but I could get past. You know, you and mom, you're back together. Chad and I, we're working on our marriage. I think, you know, part of the healing process is moving forward, right?

Jack: It's a good start.

Abigail: However, the problem is grandma is dead. And that cannot be fixed.

Jack: Abigail, it was--

Abigail: An accident? Oh, I know! I know it was an accident, but that is just what you are telling yourself because you are unwilling to accept the fact that your daughter is a murderer.

Jack: Gwen called me... as soon as laura died. When I got there... she was so upset, she was unable to function. That's why I believe her when she says it was an accident.

Abigail: But you don't know for sure. I mean, how many times has gwen fooled us?

Jack: Too many.

Abigail: Mm-hmm.

Jack: And I don't know for sure. But I also know we will never know unless gwen tells us otherwise.

Abigail: Which she will never do.

Jack: Exactly.

[Sighs] So... all that matters is, you decide. You learn to accept that, or you let it eat you alive. Which would you rather it be?

Ben: Ciara, please. You have got to let dr. Evans put you under again, because if you can remember the cabin, you can remember everything else.

Ciara: I don't want to remember everything!

Ben: Yes, you do.

Ciara: No, I don't!

Ben: Yes, you do.

Ciara: No, just stop it! Stop! Stop talking about how I love a serial killer or how I could possibly forgive you for trying to kill me twice. I just know I can'T.

Claire: Ciara, fine. Fine, be angry with me. Okay, hate me. But, please, just don't hate ben. Can you just, please, just try the hypnosis again so you can remember--

Ciara: What else is there to remember? How many more times you tried to kill me?

Claire: Ciara...

Ciara: Or you! Who knows? Maybe you tried to kill me, too. I mean, that's what you do, right? You murder people?

Marlena: Ciara.

Ciara: Oh, god.

Marlena: I have told you so many times. Ben has done the work. He's changed. He's not that same person anymore.

Ben: Ciara, I've never tried to kill you. You are everything to me--

Ciara: Oh, my god, don't you touch me! Get off of me!

Claire: Ciara, don't let how much you hate me stop you from being with the man that you love.

Ciara: I love? I don't love him! I don't love you! There's not a chance in hell that I could ever love a serial killer!

Ben: Ciara, please--

Ciara: Oh, my god, stop. I hate you, okay? I hate you. I hate the both of you.


[Solemn music]

When you have metastatic breast cancer,

Chad: Of course you have an ulterior motive. Do I even want to know?

Gwen: [Sighs] Chad, at this very moment... jack is trying to get abigail to, if not accept me, at least deescalate this war.

Chad: That you started.

Gwen: Yes, I know. Agreed. But all I want now is to move on. And if abigail agrees to do so, then I need to make sure that I am in a good place with you as well because... you're a package deal after all.

Chad: Assuming our marriage survives.

Gwen: [Sighs] I know. I know. And I am... so sorry. Again, truly, I am... terribly sorry, and I am ashamed, chad... which is why I'm here before you just begging for your forgiveness.

[Dramatic music]

Chad: I accept your apology.

Gwen: You do? Just--just like that?

Chad: Well, abby and I are working on our marriage, so we need to look ahead and not back. So... yeah, I accept your apology.

Gwen: [Chuckles]

[Inhales deeply] Now if only I could hear the same words from abigail.


Chad: Look, she knows that you two can't wind up in the police station every other week because you clawed each other's eyes out. She wants to move past all of this, but I don't think she knows how.

Gwen: Maybe if I call a truce.

Chad: Maybe. But whether or not she forgives you, that's completely up to her... and I don't know if she's there yet. I don't know if she ever will be.

Gwen: [Sighs]

Abigail: [Sighs] Oh, I miss mom.


Jack: Me too.

Abigail: You know she would never take sides because she'd be afraid of hurting you.

Jack: It's not about taking sides. It's about making sacrifices because we love each other... because we're family. You know, when I first found out that your uncle steve was my brother, I hated the hell out of him. I told myself, "that man stole my wife." At least that's the way I saw it. The truth is, kayla always loved him first and best, and I needed to accept that, and, uh... things worked out pretty well for me in the end, wouldn't you say?

Abigail: Yeah. So how did you and uncle steve get close?

Jack: Oh, that took years. A lot of loss... pain... and anger. But now... he's not just my brother. He's one of my best friends.

Abigail: Well, I don't really expect to be saying that about gwen anytime soon.

Jack: I'm not expecting you to. All I'm asking is that you try. Gwen said that she's willing. So how about you?

Marlena: I've got to check on her.

Ben: Dr. Evans, wait, wait. You have got to try and convince her to go under again, please.

Marlena: No, no, not now, ben, not now.

Ben: Doctor--

Marlena: Excuse me.

Claire: I am so sorry. This is--this is all my fault.

Ben: It's not your fault. It is not your fault. It's just--

Claire: It's a nightmare. It's a total nightmare. Ben, when is this gonna be over?

[Cries softly]

[Sobs, sighs]

Ciara: [Sighs]

[Scoffs, sniffles]

[Sighs, sniffles]

[Somber music]

[Grunts] I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

[Sobs softly]


Marlena: I'm sorry, too. I should've done a better job of preparing you.

Ciara: Please don't make me do it again. Please.

Marlena: Okay, okay. I won'T. Not for a while. I want to help you. Tell me what I can do.

Ciara: I just want to be left alone.

Marlena: I don't think that's a very good idea.

Ciara: Um... actually... may I please borrow your cell phone?

Chanel: I'll be back in, like, five minutes, tops.

Xander: I told you, I, um... I hate drinking alone.

Chanel: A five-minute break wouldn't kill you.

Xander: I don't want to take a break.

Chanel: Look, my life is pretty much over, too. You don't see me drinking myself blind.

Xander: Over, is it? What happened?

Chanel: My mom cut off my credit cards and is making me get a job.

Xander: Credit cards? You lost your credit cards, that's it? Well, your life's a bloody tragedy, isn't it? Here... [Grunts] Problem solved.

Xander: Ahh. All right. I need to use the little boys' room. Why don't you, uh, call room service? Get another bottle, yeah?

Chanel: Well, I'll definitely need some tip money. Wowza. Hmm. Titan industries. [Laughs] Looks like my financial problems may be over.

Theo: Hey.

Claire: Theo, what are you doing here?

Theo: I came to see ciara.

Ben: She's not up for visitors right now, man.

Claire: The hypnosis, it-- it didn't go well.

Theo: I know. She told me.

Ben: She called you?

Theo: She wants to see me. I'm sorry, man.

[Somber music]

Chad: Just so you know, abby wasn't in the best place about you when she went to see jack.

Gwen: [Sighs] Come on, she's never in a good place about me. But, chad, if--if she is willing to get along, I would like to know that I have your support.

Chad: Sure, for--for the sake of abby's peace of mind, yeah.

[Phone ringing]

Gwen: Oh. Sorry. Sorry. Excuse me just a minute. Jack?

Jack: I've spoken with abigail. She's still with me. She's agreed to try to work things out with you.

Gwen: Really? That's wonderful.

Jack: Can you come right over?

Gwen: Yes. Yeah, I can be right there.

Jack: See you soon.


[Sighs deeply] We're all set. I can't tell you what this means to me.

Ben: Hey, how's ciara?

Marlena: She's calmer.

Claire: I can't believe she called theo.

Marlena: She really needs a friend right now.

Ben: I have to get some air. Excuse me.

Claire: Grandma, I feel like this is all my fault.

Marlena: No, no, no. No, no, no. It's not your fault. Honey, memories... memories are what they are. I just wish that ciara had all the facts.

Claire: But she does. The fact is, is that I did. I tried to kill her, grandma, twice. And it was so hard for me to get her to forgive me once. How am I gonna do it again?


Marlena: I know.

Ciara: Why didn't anyone tell me what claire did to me? Theo, why didn't you?

Theo: We didn't want to upset you. I'm sorry that you found out the way you did.

Ciara: Me too.

[Somber music]

I don't want to remember anything about claire or ben weston ever again in my life.
