Allie: It was really nice of you guys to take me out to dinner.
Kate: Well, you were cleared in the investigation of charlie's murder. I can't think of a better reason for celebration.
Allie: And I get why you were worried, grandma. And I'm really sorry that i put you through that. I made a terrible mistake taking your gun, and I'm just-- I'm really grateful that my mom didn't end up in prison because of it.
Kate: Well, sami may not have used my gun to murder charlie, but someone did.
Nicole: Ava, oh--
Nicole: Uh, what's wrong?
Ava: Rafe said no.
Nicole: To what?
Ava: After you left his place earlier, we sat down to lunch, and then I went on about how I feel relief that charlie is gone, even though I also feel guilty because I am the one who made him who he was.
Nicole: Okay? So what did rafe say no to?
Ava: Well, I continued to talk, and I said, not in so many words that, um... whoever was responsible for charlie's death, he shouldn't be punished, and I'd be okay if he just dropped the case.
[Scoffs] Ava, rafe is the police commissioner. He can't just drop a case to appease a friend.
Ava: Yeah, I know that. I know, all right? I'm not thinking straight, okay? I'm just--um... I'm worried, nicole.
Nicole: Well, yeah, of course you are, and you're desperate to protect tripp.
Ava: There is nothing to protect, okay?
Nicole: Wha--but you just told me that tripp was--
Ava: Okay, I know what i told you, and you need to forget it, because rafe can never find out what tripp did.
[Soft dramatic music]
Rafe: Hey. What, are you moving back in?
Gabi: I just came to pick up a few sketches. Since when do you bring your work home?
Rafe: Uh, since trask is all over me to find charlie dale's killer. Now that sami's off the hook, your bro is back to square one.
Gabi: Well, I'm about to do you a favor, big bro.
Rafe: What's that?
Gabi: I'm gonna solve this case for you.
Jack: You okay?
Abigail: I don't know if this is a good idea.
Jack: Abigail, I understand your reluctance. Honey, I'm telling you, it means so much to me if you and your sister would just--
Abigail: Oh, god, can you please just not call her that?
Jack: Okay, okay. I'm telling you, you and gwen need to make peace. Mainly because I can't stand to sit here and-- and watch what all this hate and anger is doing to you. I mean, for you to go as far as you did--
Abigail: I know what I did to gwen is wrong. I know that, but compared to what she did, I just-- look, I don't think I can do this. Can we just call her and tell her she-- she doesn't need to come?
Jack: Too late.
Abigail: Daddy, please, I--
Jack: Abigail, baby. Love you. You can do this. I know you can.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Gwen: So how do we do this?
Jack: I say we just jump right in. So, gwen? Maybe you'd like to start?
[Soft dramatic music]
Gwen: [Sighs] Abigail... I know I did some truly terrible things to you.
Abigail: It wasn't just to me, it was to my whole family.
Gwen: [Sighs] Yes, I know. I know I hurt you. All of you. But you, little sister, were my main target. And I wanted to take away everything that you had, everything that I thought that I had been denied of. I thought I could do that from afar... before you even knew I existed. By drugging your champagne.
[Laughs] And when that didn't work, I decided to get close to you... gain your trust...
[Sniffs] So that you'd let me care for your children... plan your parents' party, and... be alone with your husband.
[Inhales] I wish that I had the words to express... how deeply I regret... what I have done. Abigail, I'm sorry. Truly, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for all of it.
[Sighs] Well, don't you have anything to say?
Abigail: Yeah, um... I think talk is cheap.
Abigail: We both know she's a pathological liar. Why am I gonna sit here and believe any of this?
Jack: Abigail... I think it took a lot for gwen to say everything she just did. Now it's your turn.
Nicole: Ava, look, I know you're terrified of losing tripp.
Ava: He is my entire world.
Nicole: I understand that.
Ava: Okay, fine. Then convince rafe to just let the whole thing go.
Nicole: Think about what you're saying here for a second. You told me that you saw tripp rushing from charlie's building, and then you went upstairs and you found charlie in a pool of blood because of a bullet wound. And now, not only are you asking me to keep this from rafe, my friend, the police commissioner, but you're also asking me to pressure him into dropping the case?
Ava: To protect my son. His entire future and mine are on the line.
Nicole: Yeah, well, you know what? I don't feel comfortable lying to rafe, because what if he starts questioning me?
Ava: Okay, listen to me, nicole, if you don't give me your word right now that you are gonna keep quiet, I'm gonna do exactly what sami did. I will confess to the murder myself.
Rafe: Okay. And how are you gonna solve this case?
Gabi: Easy. I know who the killer is.
Rafe: Uh-huh. Really? All right, then, sherlock. Why don't you fill me in?
Gabi: All right. When sami confessed to murdering charlie, I thought that was very confusing, because it conflicted with information that I had. And then you arrest her, so I just--I figured you had something that I didn't know about. We all found out that sami was lying, and, well, that--
Rafe: Right, right, right. Who's the killer?
Gabi: Ava vitali. No doubt in my mind.
Trelegy for copd.
Philip: I still can't believe charlie was an intern at titan. That psycho was in my office every day.
Kate: I know. You'd never guess how dangerous he was by looking at him, would you?
Philip: Hey, I'm curious how you feel about all this, allie. Like, I know it's complicated, but... are you glad charlie's dead?
Allie: Glad? No, no. Of course I'm not glad somebody, that anybody, was shot to death, I just-- I mean, it's horrible either way.
Philip: So you'd be okay with whoever shot him went to prison?
Allie: Okay, I really don't want to talk about this anymore, so I have to get home to my son. Thanks, guys.
Philip: Huh. Was it something I said?
Ava: I swear to god, nicole, I will go back to rafe's right now, and I will tell him that I'm the one who killed charlie.
Nicole: No, you can't do that.
Ava: Oh, watch me. The D.A. Is all over rafe to make an arrest. I am the last one that saw my son alive. I confess? Case closed.
Nicole: So you're just gonna throw your whole life away?
Ava: Tripp is my whole life. And now you are threatening to have him locked up. It is not gonna happen, nicole! Do you understand? Charlie almost already tried to ruin tripp's life once before by--by letting him take the fall for a crime he did not commit. I am not gonna let him ruin it now.
Ava: Nicole? Promise me. Promise me you are not gonna do anything to jeopardize his freedom. Fine.
Nicole: All right, all right, all right. All right. I promise.
Ava: Thank you.
Rafe: So you think that ava killed her own son?
Gabi: I know she did.
Rafe: Uh-huh. How?
Gabi: The night that charlie was shot, I came in here for a glass of water, and I saw ava slipping out the back door.
Rafe: And you're sure it was the same night?
Gabi: I'm positive.
Rafe: Now, I do remember that next morning. Seeing that ava's bed hadn't been slept in, I asked her about it, she said she made it before she went to the store early that morning.
Gabi: Yeah, rafe, she lied. Something that I'm sure she has a lot of experience with. She didn't want you to know that she murdered her own son, so there you go, you can pack up your box, your work here is done. You're welcome.
Abigail: Okay. All right, fine, yeah. Here we go. Okay, gwen.
[Clears throat] I'm sorry for all the times that we fought. For instance, the time in the town square when i punched you after you had all but admitted to drugging me, and then proceeded to gloat about the fact that you had slept with my husband.
Abigail: Um, I am also sorry for the time at the police station when i almost hit you, again, uh, because I had urged rafe to arrest you because you had attacked me and threatened my family. Um, and that's when you came in with that ridiculous fake black eye.
Jack: Abigail? Uh, you're--
[Clears throat] You're laying all the blame on gwen.
Abigail: Well, dad, you heard her. She said I was a target.
Abigail: [Laughs] Okay. All right, fine, okay.
[Clears throat] Fine. I'll admit, okay? I started the fight at my grandmother's grave site. I did do that, and I clearly went too far when I kidnapped you and threatened to inject you with the same drug that you actually did give to me. But, um, those things, I do realize I should not have done. Realize that now.
Jack: [Sighs] Okay. I'm gonna commend you both on your sincere efforts. I--I know we still have a long way to go, but apologizing and agreeing to move forward is a really big first step. Now, please... make your father happy and shake on it.
[Soft dramatic music]
Jack: Abigail? Advil dual action fights pain 2 ways.
Philip: I didn't mean to upset her.
Kate: Well, obviously, talking about charlie, I mean, is uncomfortable for her. He's the father of her son, after all. Honestly, I'm not even crazy about talking about him. You know, it's--it's depressing. I'd much rather just enjoy this time, along with my son. What could be better than that?
Philip: Sharing my dessert?
Gabi: Ooh, don't mind if I do. That is my favorite.
Nicole: Hey. I was just gonna order something to eat. Do you want anything?
Allie: Uh, no, I'm good. I actually--I just had dinner with my grandma kate and uncle philip, so. How's henry?
Nicole: Oh, sleeping like an angel.
Allie: Thank you so much for taking care of him.
Nicole: Of course. How was dinner?
Allie: Um, it was... fine. Until they started talking about charlie.
Nicole: What did they say?
Allie: [Sighs] Well, my grandma laid into me for taking her gun, again. Then they just kept going on and on about who the real killer could be.
Nicole: You know, sweetie, I--I know how hard this has been on you. You know, when they charged your mother with... charlie's murder, you felt responsible for bringing the gun over to charlie's apartment. But now we know that your mother didn't do it.
Allie: But I think I know who did.
Ava: Ooh, I hope you are hungry. You know, I like this whole cooking thing that we've got going. I made italian, you made mexican. It's my turn again, and i am going to make you the most mouth-watering bucatini. It is another one of my signature dishes--
Rafe: Well, before you get started... maybe you can answer one question.
Rafe: Why'd you lie to me?
Gwen: [Sighs] Well, it seems abigail isn't quite ready.
Jack: Abigail... honey, I--I understand. This is challenging, I know. But the two of you, come on. You can't go on like this.
Abigail: Of course not. I mean, that's why I agreed to come over here. I understand that I need to let this go, I do want to do that. But I--
Jack: What? What is stopping you? Please, just-- just shake gwen's hand. And don't just do it for me. Do it for your husband, your kids, but most of all, do it for yourself. Do you want this feud to overshadow all that's good in your life? Do you want to be consumed by rage?
Abigail: No, I don'T.
Jack: Good. Good, you hold on to that. That desire to end this terrible, destructive cycle once and for all.
Abigail: I need one thing first. From gwen.
Gwen: What's that?
Abigail: I want you to look me in the eye and swear on your life that what happened to my grandmother was an accident. The ups and downs of frequent mood swings
Kate: Excuse me, no one invited you to join us.
Gabi: Excuse me, but I don't need an invitation. I need to discuss business with philip, so I called the office and tracked him down.
Philip: What's up?
Gabi: We need to find a new location for the gabi chic flagship store, because some conniving snake stole it right from under us.
Kate: Gabi, you are such a poor loser.
Gabi: All is fair in love and war.
Kate: Yeah, well, this may be war, but it has nothing to do with love.
Gabi: Well, maybe it could.
Allie: This is just really hard to talk about, because I've been getting to know tripp, and he's a really good guy, and I just--
Nicole: Hang on a second, wait-- are you saying tripp killed his own brother?
Allie: Well, I hope not, but, nicole, I'm really scared for him, I mean, what if he actually did this?
Nicole: Let's take this one step at a time.
Nicole: Tripp was here earlier, right?
Allie: Yeah, he came by to help with henry.
Nicole: Did he talk about the murder?
Allie: Well, he asked me if rafe had told me any more information about the investigation, and I said, "no," but that rafe is a really good cop, and regardless of the fact that charlie hurt me, he would still want whoever shot charlie to be brought to justice.
[Sighs] And that's when tripp admitted it.
Nicole: Admitted what?
Allie: That he went to charlie's apartment the night that charlie was killed.
Ava: Lie to you? About what?
Rafe: Well... you know, the morning after charlie was shot. I said to you, I said it looked like your bed hadn't been slept in. Do you remember that?
Ava: Yeah, vaguely.
Rafe: Huh, right. You said to me that you had made your bed early that morning before you went to buy some eggs.
Rafe: You know, funny thing is my sister was just here and she, uh-- she had a very different story.
Ava: [Chuckles] Oh, yeah, what'd she say?
Rafe: Well, she said that she, uh-- she saw you sneaking out of the house in the middle of the night. It was the night that charlie... was shot.
Ava: Okay. Well, yes, I, um-- I did go out. I wasn't "sneaking out," I was trying to be quiet so I didn't wake anyone up.
Rafe: Why'd you go?
Ava: I couldn't sleep.
Rafe: What? Why didn't you ever tell me this?
Ava: Rafe, because-- you know, you've just-- you've been so good to me, and I started to feel bad that I'd lied to you before.
Rafe: Where'd you go? And before you answer me, remember that you just said you felt bad about lying to me, so, please... don't lie to me again. Where did you go that night?
Ava: I went to charlie's place.
Abigail: Go ahead, gwen. Just do it, just swear on your life that what happened to my grandma laura was an accident. Do it, just swear on your life.
Gwen: I-- oh, god.
Jack: Gwen, it's okay, just tell abigail what you told me.
Gabi: Well, your son is just so handsome. And successful. And now that we're-- well, we're working together very closely, you never know what might happen.
Kate: Okay, well, he's also highly intelligent, and smart enough to know he's being used, so.
Gabi: Uh, who says I'm using him? And even if I was, well, you... wouldn't mind, phil?
Philip: Not at all. Being used can be quite a turn on, actually.
Jake: Uh, what the hell is going on here?
Nicole: So... allie, sweetie, when you left charlie's apartment, he had the gun, and then when your mother showed up, he was dead. So, obviously, somewhere in between, someone showed up and killed charlie. You--you haven't told anyone else this, I assume?
Allie: No, no.
Allie: And I don't want to. Nicole, tripp and I, we-- we get along really well, and-- and I already accused him of one crime he didn't commit, and I do not want to do that again.
Nicole: Allie, um... it's possible that tripp could be guilty this time.
Allie: Well, possible is not nearly good enough, okay? I'm not saying anything to anyone else until I have all of the facts.
Nicole: Well, then you need to go get them.
Rafe: When I told you that sami had been arrested for charlie's murder, you said that justice had been done. You said-- you said, as a parent, that you understood why sami killed him. Except now we know... she didn't do it.
Ava: Oh. And that means I did? Is that what you're saying?
Rafe: I mean-- charlie kidnapped you. And--and he drugged you, and, um-- you know, what he did to allie was unspeakable, so... you know, maybe you thought that you had to take matters into your own hands.
Ava: No. No, I did not.
Rafe: I need you to tell me the truth right now.
Ava: I am telling you the truth. I did not kill charlie.
Rafe: But you were with him that night!
Rafe: You went to see him?
Ava: Yeah, I did.
Rafe: Okay? So why don't you walk me through it, then?
[Soft dramatic music]
Ava: Okay I-- I knocked on his door. There was no answer, the--the-- the door was unlocked, and so I went in. Went inside, I called his name, and-- then I saw him lying in a pool of blood. I rushed over to him and i realized that he-- he had been shot. He was badly wounded, but he was still alive.
Rafe: All right. And then what happened?
Ava: I pulled out my phone. I told him to hang on, and i was gonna call an ambulance, but he stopped me. He just wanted me to listen. And he said, "I love you, mom."
Rafe: Those his last words?
Ava: No. He, um... he wanted me to tell him that I loved him, too. And so I did. And I know that he heard me, because he smiled. And then he closed his eyes... and he was gone.
Abigail: Ugh! That is so disgusting!
Gwen: I'm sorry, I--I--
Abigail: What, are you aiming at me?
Gwen: I need to sit down.
Abigail: Where the hell did you learn to puke on demand?
Gwen: I didn't mean to.
Abigail: Oh, you're such a liar. You did this on purpose. See, dad? That's one hell of a way to avoid giving me a straight answer about killing my grandma.
Jack: Abigail, please, gwen obviously doesn't feel well.
Abigail: Yeah, well, you know what? Neither do I.
Gwen: [Sighs] I've got moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Kate: Well, this is a welcome surprise, what brings you by?
Jake: Uh... I got some news, but it's about business, so maybe we should talk somewhere private?
Gabi: If it's about how you're planning to put a basic black store in the square, I couldn't care less.
Kate: Oh, really? Because you had a complete hissy fit the first time you found out.
Gabi: Yeah, but that was then. See, we've moved on to bigger and better things.
Philip: Damn right.
Kate: Okay, uh, why don't you just tell us the news?
Jake: We didn't get the lease.
Kate: What do you mean, "we didn't get the lease"? We signed a contract.
Jake: Yes, we did, and the landlord never executed it. He's already negotiating with somebody else.
Kate: Oh, great. Uh-- don't tell me, paulina price?
Jake: How the hell you'd know that?
Kate: Damn woman.
Gabi: Who's the poor loser now?
Ava: I'm sorry. Rafe, I'm so sorry.
Rafe: That's--no, don'T. You don't have to apologize. Okay? I'm sorry that you, uh-- I'm sorry you had to hold that in for so long, and... and I can't imagine you had to... you watch your son die in front of you, and... that must've been, uh... incredibly painful. I--
Ava: It's nothing. Nothing compared to the pain that he felt all his life. Because of me. I failed him. All he wanted was my love and approval, and--
[Sniffs] I couldn't give it to him, and... he turned into a monster, and I'm--I'm responsible for that.
Rafe: I'm sure that you were doing the best that you could at the time.
Ava: I gave him nothing. Nothing. I gave him no-- no attention, no affection, no praise. And no matter how much he-- he wanted... me to feel about him the way that I felt about tripp, I just, I-- I never did. I mean-- I don't know why. Why, why, why? Why couldn't I have just... faked it? You know, pretended. Just--just a little. I mean, what kind of a mother doesn't even tell her own son that she loves him until he's about to die?
Rafe: Uh-- listen, I'm sure that, uh-- that it meant a lot. You were there for him, and was there for you at the end, and--
Ava: [Laughs] And then... I just walked out the door. I walked out, and I left him. Alone. You know, um-- rafe, I, uh-- I don't deserve your kindness. I don't, you've been great. You took me in, you let me stay here, and I have just been lying to you... for weeks.
Rafe: Yeah, um... and it occurs to me that... that morning when I got the call, um, that there was a gunshot at charlie's apartment, and I told you that I was going over there. You already knew.
Ava: Yeah. I did.
Rafe: [Sighs] Why didn't you say anything?
Allie: You think I should get the facts?
Nicole: Yes, I do. You need to talk to tripp and finish your conversation and find out what really happened.
Allie: No, no. I can't do that, because then I'll have to tell rafe, and if this gets out, it could ruin tripp's life.
Gwen: Oh, god, I'm so, so sorry about that.
Jack: Look, you got sick, it's not your fault.
Gwen: Oh, god. What a bloody disaster!
Jack: Look, are you feeling any better?
Gwen: A little, I--I-- jack, that was not-- that was not a stunt, I swear. I just wasn't feeling well, and I just suddenly--
Jack: Gwen, gwen. I don't believe that throwing up can be a stunt, so please don't try to--to persuade me that it was deliberate. Of course it wasn't deliberate. You felt sick. Period, it happens. I believe you.
Gwen: [Sighs] Thank you. Thank you, that means a lot.
Jack: Here, let me-- let me get you some ginger ale. It'll--it'll help settle your stomach. Gwen: [Sighs]
[Sighs] Oh. It's my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.
Gabi: Well, it looks like, uh, your offer was an epic fail, kate.
Kate: Well, jake and i will figure it out.
Gabi: Good luck with that. Look, I've had enough shop talk for tonight. Why don't--why don't we head out and let these two lick their wounds?
Philip: Sure. Where to?
Gabi: Well, you can take me home and we can see where the night ends up.
Philip: Sounds like a plan.
Nicole: Allie, it's only a matter of time before rafe finds out the truth. And if tripp is guilty, then it's gonna look even worse for him, because he let your mother confess knowing she was innocent.
Allie: That was my mom's choice.
Nicole: Yeah, it was. But it's still gonna look bad for tripp.
Nicole: Honey, look. I know that you care about him and that he's really good with henry, but it would be better for him if he just came clean. You see that, don't you?
Rafe: Ava... what I don't understand is... why didn't you tell me that charlie was dead?
Nicole: We both know how furious tripp was with charlie for kidnapping you, for taking the fall for allie's assault. You know, those are some pretty big motives. And--and we also know that kate's gun was in charlie's apartment, right? So he had means, and you saw, with your own eyes, tripp's opportunity to kill his own brother.
Ava: No, no. Okay. I--I was... I was upset. Wh--why are you looking at me like that?
Rafe: [Chuckles] Ever since you've been staying here... I've gotten to know you pretty well. Talked about things, shared things. You've-- opened up to me and... told me things about your life, and about charlie. And now...
Ava: Now what?
Rafe: [Chuckles] Now I get the feeling that there's something you're not telling me. So... is there a reason that you've stayed silent this whole time?
Chad: Is gwen sick? Is she-- have a stomach virus, or something?
Abigail: I mean, first, how--how would I know? And no, she doesn'T. I mean, it was a totally intentional sudden stall tactic.
Chad: I don't understand.
Abigail: [Scoffs] Well, we're sitting there and we're about to make a truce, and I decide I'm gonna put her on the spot, you know? And I said, "gwen, before I agree, I want you to look me in the eye and swear that what happened to my grandmother was an accident." And then that is when little miss rizczech reached into her bag of tricks.
Chad: Mean--meaning what?
Abigail: Well, she knows my dad's watching her like a hawk. She knows she's gotta lie to him, and she knows I know it too, and I just think she couldn't do it.
Chad: So she made herself throw up?
Abigail: Maybe? You know? Or maybe--maybe she's so petrified at the prospect of actually lying to my dad, that she really did get sick to her stomach, but the one thing I know was actually deliberate... she chose to puke on me.
Chad: Are you sure?
Abigail: Yes. I mean, my god, why didn't she turn away? Why wouldn't you run to the bathroom? That's what an adult does when they're gonna vomit. But no, no. She says, "oh, oh, this is great timing. I'll just throw up on abigail, and then we can just get out of this whole peaceful coexistence garbage."
Chad: So there goes the truce?
Abigail: I am not making peace with this woman. I'm not doing it now, and I'm not doing it ever.
Jack: Maybe it was something you ate?
Gwen: [Sighs] Or maybe I'm pregnant.
