Jake: [Laughs] You look like hell.
Ben: Shouldn't you be at, like, a power lunch right now?
Jake: After back-to-back meetings since 8:00 A.M., I decided I'play hooky. Figured I'd see how you're doing, but judging by this, not so well. So...did you take my advice about ciara?
Ciara: Yeah. This is disgusting.
Justin: Knock, knock.
Justin: Hey. Are you up for a visitor?
Ciara: Well, of course I am.
Justin: Ah. It's so good to see you.
Ciara: So good to see you.
Chad: You know how it works! You'll only get some of harold's special kettle corn if you can agree on a movie. Charlotte, it's thomas' turn to pick.
Theo: You are rocking the stay-at-home-dad routine.
Theo: Any chance I could get in on that kettle corn?
Chad: That face.
Jack: Gwen. Do you really think I'd abandon you now?
Gwen: Jack, no. I'm pregnant, and the dad is abigail's husband.
Jack: It's terrible, yes. But there's no way I'm gonna let you deal with this alone.
Gwen: Thank you. I know this is hard on you too.
Jack: We just have to be careful, that's all.
Gwen: Yeah, I--I know. Can you imagine how abigail would react if she found out I'm pregnant with her husband's child?
Abigail: What did you just say?
Announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Gabi: Hey, do you have a minute?
Gabi: I need you to look at the final projections for the gabi chic fall line.
Philip: I can't do that now--
Gabi: What are you talking about; what do you mean you can't do that? We're rolling out to our competitors; we have a deadline. "You don't have time for that" isn't an option.
Philip: [Scoffs] You always go from zero to ticked off in, like, two seconds?
Gabi: No, no, no, I just-- this is really important, philip, okay? You need to make time for this.
Philip: Well, what I was gonna say before you interrupted me, was before we discuss business, we should talk about what happened the other night.
Chad: I heard you were in town. Took you long enough to get over here.
Theo: Well, the carver side of the family has been keeping me a little busy.
Chad: Yeah, I can imagine. But they must be thrilled to have you back. Did I hear that you're a godfather now?
Theo: Jules is my girl.
Chad: Yeah, I'm guessing you don't need any tips on spoiling her.
Theo: Pretty much got that down.
Chad: I wouldn't expect anything less.
Theo: So how's everything with you?
Chad: [Clears throat] Um... you know, the kids are awesome. Thomas is the best reader in class. I just taught charlotte how to count in tens.
Theo: Brilliant, just like their daddy.
Chad: Yeah--well, no. Math was never really one of my strong subjects, and I'm mildly dyslexic, so I really couldn't read until fifth grade. They're not so "brilliant like their dad." But, I mean, they're the best. And they always get along. They never really fight. We're lucky, abby and I.
Theo: So how is abigail?
Chad: She's good.
Theo: Good? What's going on?
Chad: [Clears throat] You know, why don't we pull up the chairs and play a game of chess? I'll tell you all about it.
Abigail: Tell me I did not just hear what I just heard.
Jack: Abigail, I didn't see you come in.
Abigail: Well, obviously not. Now I know why you're not answering my calls or returning my texts. Seems gwen here has come up with yet another way to screw with us.
Gwen: Abigail, please.
Abigail: "Abigail, please," what, hmm? What? My god, gwen. How about the truth for once, if you're capable of it?
Gwen: [Sighs] Sorry, it's true. I'm pregnant. It's my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.
Gabi: What about what happened the other night?
Philip: Your hand on my leg?
Gabi: You kissed me.
Philip: Nah, I was doing that to tick off my mom.
[Laughs] You know, the look on her face, right?
Philip: And when you said that this could be more than business...
Gabi: Kate's just so much fun to mess with.
Philip: Jake too. He may be dating my mom, but I could've sworn that he got a little warm under the collar when he saw me plant that kiss on you.
Gabi: I didn't notice.
Philip: Sure you did.
Gabi: No, I didn't, because I don't care about jake or his reactions to things, so...
Philip: Okay, okay, I got it.
Gabi: And plus, you and i were having so much fun. So who cares?
Philip: Right, who cares? You know, the best part was jake's news that they lost the lease to the gabi chic space.
Gabi: Serves them right after they scammed us out of it.
Philip: We should celebrate.
Gabi: By going over these numbers.
Philip: I was thinking about something a little more celebratory like dinner tonight.
Chad: So under the heading of tmi, you are now up to date on all the dimera drama. Judging by your silence, you must be appalled.
Theo: Just trying to figure out my next move.
Chad: Yeah, right.
Theo: I'm not appalled, chad. I just--I feel bad for you. And abigail.
Chad: Thank you. But do not feel bad for me. My sleeping with gwen was...
[Sighs] It was a stupid, stupid, horrible mistake. One of the dumbest things I've done in my entire life. And believe me, that is-- that is saying a lot. I just--the really foolish thing was just that I believed all of her lies, and I should've seen through all of them from the get-go.
Theo: But abigail is gonna give you a second chance, right?
Chad: Yeah, she is. Luckily. You know, when she moved out, I thought that I'd lost her for good. And--you know, but we're headed in the right direction. She moved back in. We're seeing a couples therapist, so, you know, we're-- hopefully we're doing everything we can to make our marriage work.
Theo: So how does that work exactly?
Chad: How does what work?
Theo: Abigail hates gwen. You slept with gwen, and gwen is abigail's sister. So she's going to be in your life.
Chad: It is complicated.
Chad: But gwen's-- she's determined to make amends for everything she's done to hurt the family.
Theo: And you think abigail's going to forgive her?
Chad: You know, that's-- it's a tad bit more complicated at the moment. Abby said she wants to make a truce. In fact, abby's with gwen right now, trying to make peace.
Abigail: Pregnant? Oh, you are unbelievable. You know, all your tears, all your remorse, all the crap about how sorry you are, you know? You want us to move on. You want us to be the family you always wanted, and I am an idiot, because I chose to believe all of your lies again.
Jack: It's not a lie, abigail; gwen is pregnant.
Abigail: Well, of course you believe her. You don't think she killed grandma.
Gwen: [Sighs] It's true. Why don't you see for yourself?
Abigail: Gwen. You have faked and you have lied about so many things, you have-- I'm sure you're capable of faking a pregnancy test.
Jack: I was here when she took the test.
Abigail: Were you in the bathroom with her?
Jack: No, of course not. I watched her take the box out. She took it into the bath-- it explains everything. Why she got sick yesterday and threw up. It wasn't stress or the flu.
Gwen: It was because I am, indeed, pregnant.
Abigail: Oh, my god.
Gwen: With chad's child.
Ciara: Thank you for the flowers.
Justin: They're from your grandfather.
Ciara: I thought he was coming to see me too.
Justin: He was, but he's a little under the weather. Just a cold, but he just didn't wanna pass it along to you.
Ciara: I understand. Maybe he and I can do a video chat later or something.
Justin: Absolutely. But in the meantime, along with the flowers, he asked me to give you this card.
Justin: [Clears throat]
Ciara: "To my brave, beautiful granddaughter. Dear ciara, I so wish I could be with you today. But soon, my darling, we will spend lots of time together. And though I know it's been difficult for you, I truly believe that not being able to remember ben weston is the best thing that could've happened to you."
Ben: You still drink beers, or just the fancy stuff now?
Jake: You're hilarious. So...tell me how it's going with ciara.
Ben: Took your advice, went to the hospital with this backpack full of pictures, mementos, her washer engagement ring, anything that could possibly jog her memory.
Jake: Did it work?
Ben: Showed her everything, told her everything. How we met, how we fell in love, got engaged. She didn't remember anything at all.
Jake: Huh, so what? You just gave up?
Ben: No, I didn't just give up. I asked dr. Evans to hypnotize her. Try to help her get her memory back, like it helped me.
Jake: She agree?
Ben: Yeah, she agreed.
Jake: That's great.
Ben: No, it's not great. Dr. Evans tried to take her back to the moment she woke up in the cabin after the motorcycle accident. Ciara remembered the cabin, but the moment she remembered was waking up, trapped on the bed, with the whole place going up in flames.
Jake: Is that when claire set the thing on fire? Damn.
Ben: Obviously, ciara freaked out. Dr. Evans had to end the session.
Jake: Huh. I'm sorry, man. Hey, think of it as a setback. Maybe next time she'll remember.
Ben: No, there's not gonna be a next time, man. Ciara refuses to try it again. She actually says that she hates me, and she does not want me anywhere near her. Those were her words.
Jake: That's rough. Again, I'm really sorry.
Ben: How is it possible that after everything we have through, I find her alive, against all odds... I bring her home safe, and now I might have actually lost ciara forever?
Jake: Maybe it's time to try that serum.
-And I'm margo.
Gabi: Dinner tonight? Like, business, or, like, a date?
Philip: I was thinking, like, a date. What do you say?
Gabi: I don't think that's such a good idea.
Philip: Why not?
Gabi: We work together.
Philip: I believe you've mixed business and pleasure in the past.
Gabi: Maybe I learned my lesson.
Philip: Or you're not into me. Or you're still hung up on jake.
Ben: The memory serum? Dr. Rolf's?
Jake: Why not? You said it worked on will.
Ben: Yeah, and I talked to dr. Evans about it. She told me that drug was designed to fix the amnesia side effect from another drug, so it might not even work for ciara.
Jake: Mm. Won't know unless you try.
Ben: No, I talked about that too, and she said it could be dangerous. Dude, no matter how much I want to get ciara's memory back, I love her way too much to risk her health.
Jake: Even if it means she might remember what you two had?
Ciara: "I don't know if you've been told, ciara, but though I gave you my blessing before you got married, maggie and I couldn't attend your wedding because she wasn't well. Which turned out to be a good thing, since we very well might have been blown to smithereens." What is he talking about?
Justin: I don't think you need to hear about this now--
Ciara: No--yes, I do need to hear about it. Tell me, justin. Please.
Justin: Okay. Eve donovan set off a bomb.
Ciara: At my wedding? Oh, my god. Because ben killed her daughter?
[Laughs] Just another target ben had on his back because of the horrible things he's done.
Justin: I didn't-- ciara, I didn't know what your grandfather put in that letter, but I really wish he hadn't brought that up.
Ciara: What, you think he shouldn't have brought up ben weston, like "ben weston" is off-limits?
Justin: Well, I just think that this is a very difficult situation for you, and, you know, after everything you've been through, I just don't think you should be pressured into thinking one way or the other about ben.
Ciara: Pressured? I know exactly how I feel about ben, and no amount of "pressure, one way or the other" is going to make me think differently. I hate him, and I hate the things that he's done. And I honestly-- I just can't believe that so many people who loved me, including you, were just okay with me being involved with a serial killer.
Theo: I'm pulling for you and abigail to be okay. I mean, you're like some super couple, right? So you have to be.
Chad: [Laughs] Yeah. Yeah, something like that. Look, enough about our problems. Tell me about yourself. Didn't you tell me that you were dating somebody in south africa?
Theo: Yeah, but we broke up.
Chad: I'm sorry to hear that.
Theo: Don't be. I kind of knew that it wasn't gonna work right from the beginning. I mean, she and I, we just had two totally different goals. It was definitely for the best.
Chad: All right, well, you're back on the market, then.
Theo: [Laughs] I guess.
Chad: Any prospects?
Theo: Not really.
Chad: What does "not really" mean?
Theo: Well, there's sort of this situation with ciara. You know what's going on with her, right?
Chad: Yeah, she's alive, which is amazing. But I heard she's having some issues with her memory.
Theo: Yeah, it's pretty bad. I mean, she has complete amnesia about the last few years. As far as she remembers, she still hates claire for trying to sleep with tripp, and, in her mind, ben is still a serial killer.
Chad: Yeah. Maybe that's a good thing. I just... yeah, everybody wants to believe ben's some new man, you know, all excited about his great redemption, but after everything that man put me and abby through, the last thing I want is to see him have a happily ever after with a woman who's way too good for him.
Chad: Wow, what?
Theo: I gotta admit, I'm pretty relieved to hear you say that. I mean, I thought that I was the only one who thought that way.
Chad: I think a lot of people do, but I, you know, I speak for myself, of course. My opinion--I think ciara could do a hell of a lot better.
Theo: And we agree again.
Chad: Ah, okay. So you think that you might be the hell of a lot better guy?
Abigail: Okay. So let's just assume that you really are...pregnant. How do I know it's chad's?
Gwen: There's no question that it's his. I haven't been with anybody else since that night.
Abigail: That night? Okay, that night was new year's eve. So are you telling me you didn't realize you were pregnant until now?
Gwen: Well, look, I haven't always been very regular, okay? And with everything that's been going on, I just assumed that it was stress.
Abigail: Or-- or you have known you were pregnant for weeks and weeks, and you're just waiting for the perfect little moment to drop your little bombshell.
Abigail: Dad, just stop "abigail-ing" me every time you don't like what I have to say.
Jack: Sweetheart, as terrible as this is, we need to acc--
[Stammers] What, her truth? Oh, yeah, yeah. Because gwen, you know, you just always have been so darn truthful in the past.
Gwen: Of course you don't believe me. I mean, why would you after all the things that I did to you last year? I blamed you for all the things that happened to my life, the way my life turned out. And I realize now that that was not fair. Which is why I am trying to make amends with you, because I know what I did was wrong, abigail. And all I want now is just for us to move on. I just want some sort of relationship with you. As sisters. Believe me. Finding out that I'm pregnant with chad's child, that last thing that I wanted.
Abigail: Well, if that's true, then you need to terminate it. On the outside, I looked fine.
Gwen: Terminate my pregnancy?
Abigail: Yeah, why wouldn't you? You know, you just said the last thing you wanted was to be pregnant by chad.
Jack: Perhaps we all need to take some time--
Abigail: Why? I mean, why? She said she wanted to make amends, said she wanted to move forward, be the family that you've always wanted, so why cause more pain and grief, hmm? More suffering for our family, for your family? You know what--in fact, what are we waiting for? Why don't we--I could call the clinic right now, we could make an appointment. I will drive you down there myself. Okay, you wanna move forward, you wanna improve our relationship? I think we can take care of this problem right here, right now.
Theo: I'm not looking to start anything with ciara. Ben is still her husband, no matter how she feels about him right now. It'd be wrong.
Chad: But you're clearly thinking of her as more than a friend.
Theo: Like I said, ciara's married. But, okay. Yeah, I do still have feelings for her.
Justin: Ciara, by the time you and ben had become engaged to be married-- I can only speak for myself-- I only thought of him as the man that you were madly in love with, who loved you.
Ciara: You didn't think about the fact that he killed people in cold blood? That he strangled them to death just for the hell of it?
Justin: I think that we all believed that with therapy and medication and the fact that he was just so devoted to you, that he had turned his life around.
Ciara: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Okay, well, here's how I see it. You can maybe be a womanizer, ruthless in business, selfish, mean-spirited, and maybe turn your life around and become a wonderful person, but not after you've taken the lives away from three innocent people.
Justin: You know, maybe shouldn't talk about this right now.
Ciara: Justin, I understand that you care about me, and that apparently you chose to be supportive when ben and i were together. But there's no way that you can convince me that someone capable of doing what ben did can turn his life around. Which is why I wholeheartedly agree with my grandfather. Forgetting about the happy times ben and I had, and forgetting about the fact that I chose to marry him in the first place-- that was the best thing that ever happened to me.
Ben: There is nothing in this world I want more than ciara back in my arms, but putting her at risk, her health--ugh.
Jake: You might not have to. I took that drug. No side effects. Same with kate.
Ben: Wait, kate took it too?
Jake: Yeah. Not willingly, but, you know, my mother may or may not have stabbed her with a syringe.
Ben: Great, good.
Jake: Look, the bottom line is kate had no side effects, nothing bad happened to her either.
Ben: Yeah, but we still don't know this thing actually works.
Jake: But it can work. Look, kate--she found a pen that she thought she had lost years ago.
Ben: A pen?
Jake: Yeah. All right, look. A pen is not the same thing as the love of your life, but it's something, right? Sure as hell worth a shot.
Ben: [Sighs] I don't know, man.
Jake: All right, look. You don't have to decide now. You do what you want. But if you decide you wanna do this, I'll make a call. Find out how kate got her hands on rolf's drug.
Gabi: [Scoffs] That is ridiculous! Of course I'm still not hung up on jake. That jerk does not appreciate what a woman like me has to offer.
Philip: That was convincing.
[Laughs] I'm a poor loser, okay? I don't--I'm not used to getting dumped.
Philip: I imagine not.
Gabi: And, you know, I did give jake an opportunity to make the right choice, but he ended up choosing your mother, which I have no idea why, even though she is-- to put it tactfully--completely age-inappropriate for him.
Philip: It's good to know you're not still hung up on him at all.
Gabi: Okay, maybe a little, but I don't wanna feel this way, philip. I mean, I don't wanna have to get hit with this every single time that I see him. I wanna get past this.
Philip: Well, in my experience, the only way to get past an old relationship is to start a new one. Truthfully, it's frustrating to see how fast dust reappears.
Gabi: Not too subtle, phil.
Philip: What wasn't?
Gabi: Well, your little observation, that starting a new relationship is the only way to get past an old one.
Philip: Just trying to be helpful.
Gabi: Or maybe you were coming on to me?
Philip: Coming on to you? I just thought we should give it a try. We're off to a good start. We're definitely age-appropriate.
Gabi: I don't know. I mean, what do we-- what do we have in common, besides that we both work at titan and we like to screw with your mom and jake?
Philip: Well, we're both in the same boat as our respective exes.
Gabi: How so?
Philip: Well, I thought I had something going with chloe again second time around. Maybe the third or fourth, it's hard to keep track. And she totally rejected me.
Gabi: Sucks, doesn't it?
Philip: Yeah, but I'm not gonna dwell on it. I'm much more interested in moving forward, which is why I'm very interested in taking you to dinner.
Gabi: I--[Laughs] I understand where you're coming from, but dinner-- it's too much pressure.
Philip: So that's a no?
Gabi: It is, it is. But I am feeling hungry, and it is time for lunch, so maybe if you're free--
Philip: I accept, I accept.
Gabi: Mm, no business.
Philip: So this is a date.
Justin: I hadn't intended to spend the entire time talking about ben.
Ciara: [Laughs] Yeah, well, I'm sure you hadn'T. And hey, I'm really sorry. I haven't even asked you how you were doing. How are your sons?
Justin: Oh, everyone is fine. Thank you for asking. And since I've been instructed to not tire you out, I'm gonna head home. Let you get some rest. So good to see you.
Ciara: Good to see you.
Justin: You take care of yourself, and know how loved you are.
Ciara: I know that. And I'm so grateful for it.
Justin: See you soon.
Ben: I don't know, man. I mean, even if you can get your hands on the serum, how the hell am I supposed to convince ciara to take it? She hates me right now. She said she doesn't want me anywhere near her.
Jake: That's for you to figure out yourself.
Ben: [Scoffs] And what happens if something goes wrong?
Jake: The hypnosis already went wrong. It's not like you got a whole bunch of options just laying right in front of you.
Ben: [Sighs] We fought so hard. We fought so long to finally be together. It can't end like this. It can'T. I know that whatever the hell is going on inside ciara's head, deep down, she loves me. She would want to remember what we had. She'd wanna remember the life that we dreamed of.
Jake: Yeah. Whatever you decide, I got your back. You decide you wanna do this, I can find out from kate how to get that serum. You don't even have to use it. Nothing wrong with just in case.
Ben: [Exhales] Call her.
Jake: My man. You got this.
[Cell phone beeps]
Chad: Now, for the record, I think that you would be much better for ciara than ben weston. But if something were to happen between you two, and she were to get her memory back, and she falls back in love with him, I just--you know, I don't wanna see you get hurt.
Theo: It's definitely a risk. Checkmate.
Chad: Just still kicking my ass.
Theo: Great game. I missed this.
Chad: Yeah, me too. Not the losing part.
Theo: Right, right. All right, well, I should get going. I've got a date with my goddaughter.
Chad: Right, okay. Have a good time.
Theo: Yeah. And thanks for the advice.
[Both laughs] I hope things work out between you and abigail.
Chad: Yeah, so do I.
Abigail: You know, why don't I make the call?
Jack: Abigail, slow down.
Abigail: Why, why? She said she doesn't wanna be pregnant, she says it's "the last thing that she wants." So seems like the best solution for everyone, doesn't it? Should I go ahead and just make this call?
Jack: Gwen just found out about this; it's a lot for her to take in.
Abigail: It's a lot for her to take in?
[Laughs] She just found out that she's pregnant by my husband because she chose to tell him horrible, awful, vicious lies about me to get him into bed. What about what I'm taking in? This despicable human being has found yet another way to ruin my life and chad'S. However, at least this time I found out soon enough that I can minimize that horror. And the only way to minimize that, yes, horror, is to end the pregnancy. And you'd damn well better do it, sis.
(Vo) do you push through migraine?
Jack: Here you go.
Gwen: Thank you.
Jack: You all right?
Gwen: [Sighs] Actually, that is the last thing that I am.
Jack: Stupid question. I guess... really is no good way for abigail to have heard the news.
Gwen: No. Really, there isn'T. And her reaction, I mean, well, there's no surprise there. I mean, imagine how my having chad's baby would complicate all of our lives.
Jack: Yeah, yeah. It is gonna be difficult. And complicated, yeah. But gwen, it's your body, it's your decision. Abigail has no right to make that decision. Nobody has that right.
Chad: Hey, how'd it go?
Abigail: Not well.
Chad: What happened? She throw up on you again?
Abigail: Oh, she did something a hell of lot worse than that. Not everybody wants the same thing.
Chad: You're not supposed to be drinking on your meds. Abby, you're scaring me. Abby, what's going on? Look, whatever it is, I'm sure it's not as bad as you think. What's going on?
Abigail: [Breathes deeply] Gwen's pregnant. With your child.
Gwen: I realize that what to do with this little baby growing inside of me is my decision, but... abigail seems to think it's hers.
Jack: [Sighs] Abigail is upset. Just give her a chance to calm down, and she'll realize that that is not her choice. But... if you do decide to terminate this pregnancy, I want you to know I'm gonna be right here with you to support you every step of the way. Whatever you need. Did you hear me?
Gwen: I did. And that's very kind of you, but...
Jack: But? Gwen. Do you wanna have this baby?
Philip: For you.
Gabi: My favorite.
Gabi: No, but that was very sweet of you.
Jake: Oh, let me guess. Trying to scheme your way back into the gabi chic space?
Philip: That's not a bad idea.
Gabi: Yeah, too bad we're gonna have to wait until after our date.
