Eli: Hey, you forget something, lani?
Lani: Save it, kristen. I know it's you. I know everything.
Kristen as susan: [Scoffs] Are you okay? I mean, you must be hardly sleeping, caring for these twins of yours.
Lani: I'm fine.
Kristen as susan: Oh. Are you sure? Because, you know, you are starting to think crazy things.
Lani: Would you just stop? Stop lying to me.
Kristen as susan: I don't what you're talking about, lani.
Lani: I know you, kristen. Better than anyone. And I knew something was off the last time I came to see you. That's because it wasn't you, kristen. It was susan pretending to be you.
Kristen as susan: Oh, my god. I mean, you really need to get ahold of yourself!
Lani: Okay, you know what? You have gone too far this time. Look, I love you. And you are my best friend. But you're under arrest.
Brady: Hmm. Hey, hi.
Marlena: Hi, there.
Marlena: How are you feeling?
Brady: [Sighs] I think I feel better, actually. Um, kristen-- did--did they find her?
Marlena: No. Not yet.
Marlena: I'm afraid I've got some bad news.
Brady: More bad news?
Marlena: Yeah. Kate was found at the dimera mansion. She had... been assaulted, apparently, by kristen.
Brady: My god.
Marlena: They had to put her in a medically-induced coma.
Brady: Oh. Great. That's great. What about chloe?
Xander: I'm afraid I'm not your salvation. I'm only here because kristen sent me to take you out.
Sami: Oh, uh--
Lucas: Wait a minute, wait a minute. You don't wanna do this.
Xander: Oh, I wouldn't be so sure about that.
Sami: No, he's right. I mean, look, you've done bad things, we've done bad bad things. And you're not a killer.
Xander: I did almost kill your mother.
Sami: Right, but--but that as an accident.
Xander: True. Because I was trying to kill eric.
Lucas: You're not helping, stop.
Xander: You see, I went to consummate my marriage to nicole, and he was in the way. Just like you two are now.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the "days of our lives."
Eli: What the hell? Chanel!
Chanel: What the hell indeed.
Eli: You ever heard of knocking?
Chanel: Lani gave me a key. I am staying here, remember.
Eli: Yeah, well, she said you were out.
Chanel: I was. And so were you. All the way out.
[Laughs] I'm sorry. I couldn't resist. But, do you always walk around the apartment like that?
Eli: Well, usually it's just me, lani, and the kids, so it's--it's not a problem.
Chanel: Well, it's certainly no reason to be embarrassed. I hope you don't mind me saying, but my cousin is one lucky lady.
Lani: Please, kristen. I want to help you. Okay? So... don't make this harder than it already is.
[Sniffs] I should've known I couldn't fool you.
Lani: I let you go once. I can't do it again. Everybody knows what you've already done.
Kristen: Everybody? I mean, does that include brady?
Kristen: Oh, god.
Lani: From what I hear, he went to statesville and figured it out.
[Sighs] Are you gonna make this difficult?
Kristen: No. No, I won't run.
Lani: Thank you.
Kristen: Uh, before you take me in, I'd like to ask a favor.
Lani: I can't make any promises.
Kristen: Hey, nothing bad. I'd like to meet your twins.
Marlena: [Exhales] No. Chloe's phone goes straight to voicemail.
Brady: Really? 'Cause she--she always leaves it on, in case parker needs to reach her.
Marlena: I know. That's what concerns me.
Marlena: I'm afraid that she might have gone to the mansion when kristen was there.
Marlena: I had encouraged her to talk to lucas.
Brady: You said that chloe told you something that was strange about lucas. What--what was that all about?
Marlena: Yes. That lucas was dying of a brain tumor.
Brady: What? That's--that's awful.
Marlena: Well, that would be awful if it were true, but I-- I do not it's true.
Brady: It's not true? I don't--I don't understand this. Why would--why would lucas want chloe to think that he was dying if he wasn't?
Marlena: Sami put him up to it.
Lucas: Listen to me, we're not a threat to kristen. We haven't told anybody anything.
Sami: Yeah, we've been keeping her secret this whole time.
Xander: Because she was blackmailing you.
Sami: [Scoffs] Well--
Xander: Apparently, she doesn't trust you to keep your mouth shut anymore. So she sent me to eliminate you.
Lucas: Wait a minute, wait. You hate kristen. Why would you help her?
Xander: Well, for that, you can blame your brother, philip.
Philip: So, kristen was so afraid my mom would expose her--
Gabi: That she tried to kill her.
Philip: Damn her. That woman should be locked up. Forever. And thank god jake found my mom when he did.
Philip: Look, I appreciate you coming down here, but... you don't have to stick around. I'll be fine.
Gabi: Oh, I'm-- I'm not sticking around only for you. See... when jake thought your mom dumped him, we-- well, we got back together, so.
Philip: Oh. Wow, you-- so you're a couple again?
Gabi: Honestly, uh... due to kate's current condition, I'm not actually sure where things stand between jake and me.
[ Heavy breathing ]
Allergies with nasal
congestion overwhelming you?
Philip: You think now that jake knows my mom didn't leave him, he'll go back to her?
Gabi: Well, I don't-- I don't--
Philip: How is she?
Jake: The doctors are examining her now. They don't think it's safe to bring her out of the coma yet.
Philip: I need to see her.
Gabi: The--the doctors, they think she's gonna be okay, right?
Jake: I don't know, gabi. I don't know. What if she doesn't come out of this?
Chanel: Gotta say, I liked the last outfit better.
Eli: Yeah, well, listen. I'd--I'd appreciate it if you'd just forget what you saw.
Chanel: That's gonna be kind of hard to do.
Eli: Okay, yeah, look. Enough with the jokes, all right?
Chanel: [Chuckles] Relax, okay? It's not like I haven't seen a naked guy before. I spent a lot of time in europe, including more than a few trips to nude beaches in the south of france. Which is why what just happened is so not a big deal.
Eli: All right, fine. Look, I-- I know it wasn'T. Or--or isn'T. Look, I know--I pretty much knew that anyway, okay?
Chanel: You pretty much know it wasn't, isn't anyway, why? Oh, never mind. I know exactly why. It's because lani told you I kissed a friend of mine who happens to be a girl.
Eli: A girl?
Chanel: This surprises you?
Eli: No, look, I--I just-- I just wasn't expecting that, that's all.
Chanel: Well, that seems to be a common reaction in this town.
Kristen: I mean, I've seen pictures of them, but... they didn't do them any justice.
Lani: [Chuckles] Yeah.
Kristen: Oh, I'm sorry. I should be whispering, right?
Lani: No, no, it's fine. They tend to be pretty good sleepers.
Kristen: [Laughs] Yeah. Oh, god, lani. You are so blessed to be able to raise your precious babies. I mean, if only...
Lani: If only what?
Kristen: I was just imagining, um... raising rachel next to jules and carver. And she would be their big sister.
Kristen: And then you and i would... watch them grow up together.
Lucas: What does philip have to do with any of this?
Xander: He took what is rightfully mine. Made it impossible for me to run titan.
Sami: And... how is that our problem?
Xander: The problem is, since I quit, I haven't got any money coming in.
Lucas: This is, what, a gig for you, that's it?
Xander: Yeah. Kristen found out I have some creditors breathing down my neck, and she offered a fair price, so.
Sami: Ah, yeah. A fair price for... killing us.
Xander: Sure. This is nothing personal. I just need a paycheck, so how about we cut the chit-chat and get it over with? Who wants to go first?
Chanel: So you're surprised, but not curious?
Eli: Hey, who you kiss is your business, chanel.
Chanel: True, but... it's kind of a cool story, so I don't mind telling you. We used to hang out together all the time in europe, and then we ran into each other out of the blue in salem. What a coincidence, right?
Eli: Sure is.
Chanel: Oh, we had so much fun reminiscing about the old times, and kissing her just felt right.
Chanel: Except it wasn't actually okay. There's some guy she's into. And she doesn't see me that way.
Eli: Well, I'm sorry. But I'm sure you'll find another girl. Or a guy. Either one.
Chanel: I can't imagine meeting someone that I connect with the way I connect with her. But that's life, right?
Eli: Look, chanel, you don't need to pretend.
Eli: It's--it's clear that you're hurting. It's okay to admit it.
Xander: No volunteers? All right. I'll toss a coin. Sami, you're heads.
Xander: You prefer tails?
Sami: Just wait a second. Look, whatever kristen is paying you, I'll double it.
Xander: Well, that is quite the offer.
Sami: I'm a very rich woman. You name your price.
Xander: $10 million? You told lani that's how much I wanted to divorce you?
Chanel: Genius, right?
Xander: So... five mil for you, and five for me.
[Exhales] I want 10 million.
Sami: $10 million? You're saying kristen offered you $5 million to kill us?
Lucas: What, like, 2.5 each?
Xander: Actually, it was 2 million for you, three for her.
Lucas: Why is it less for me? That's not fair.
Sami: Isn't it obvious?
Lucas: No, it's not obvious. A whole million dollars? That's ridiculous.
Sami: Well, I mean, come on--
Xander: Stop it. It isn't because of your worth. It's because you, sami, are a gigantic pain in the ass.
Lucas: He is right about that.
Sami: Excuse me?
Xander: Hey! You want to buy your freedom or not?
Sami: 10 million, huh? I guess that would mean it's only 6 million for me to buy mine alone.
Brady: Wait, hold on. So, sami dressed up as a man in order to persuade chloe that lucas was dying?
Marlena: I know. I've been wracking my brain to try to think why she would do that.
Brady: Any ideas?
Marlena: Well... according to chloe, sami and lucas wanted chloe to leave town with lucas.
Brady: And go where?
Marlena: Well-- oh, my goodness. Apparently, lucas has always had a bucket list. On that bucket list was... antarctica.
Marlena: Not exactly close to home, huh?
Brady: No. This doesn't make any sense. Why would sami want chloe to-- to leave town? The only person that wants chloe to be gone is-- is kristen.
Kristen: [Laughs] You know, the biggest blessing of me pretending to be susan was getting to spend so much time with rachel.
Lani: Yeah. I know how much you missed her.
Kristen: Yeah, I re-- every second, I mean, it was just bittersweet. I got to be so close to her and read her bedtime stories and I gave her baths!
Kristen: I always wondered why she didn't freak out being around crazy susan.
Lani: Maybe deep down in rachel's heart, she... sensed it was her mom.
Kristen: You really think so?
Lani: She had to feel the love, right?
Lani: Children, they-- they just know.
Kristen: Oh, boy, I really-- I really hope she felt it. I really, really do.
Lani: I hope so too.
[Laughs] You know what, I'm gonna-- I treasured those last months with her... 'cause now, it's all gonna be over when I go back to statesville.
Gabi: I went by the house while you were with kate.
Jake: Oh, you didn't have to do that.
Gabi: I wanted to. I know how worried you are about her, so.
Jake: Can't begin to imagine what she went through.
Gabi: Kate... is the toughest person I know. Kristen's gonna have to do a lot more to try to bring her down for good.
Jake: You're right. Thanks for reminding me of that.
Jake: I know this can't be easy for you, either.
Gabi: Look, jake... everything that's happened between us in the last 24 hours, that was--that was before kate was in a coma, and that was before you were so worried about her, so... if you wanted to change your mind about us being together, I understand. We women are in the know about everything.
Jake: The thing is, gabi... I've got so many emotions going through me right now. I keep thinking about the look on kate's face when she walked in on us. How bad that must've hurt her.
[Exhales] And to think now that...
[Clears throat] She might not make it out of this--
Gabi: You want to be there for her, I understand.
Jake: But that doesn't change how I feel about you.
Jake: I love you, gabi. And despite everything that's gone on... you're the woman I want to be with. Come here.
Eli: Here you go.
Chanel: I'm usually better at not letting people see how I really feel. Chanel's the good-time party girl, you know?
Eli: You're more than that. And maybe it's easier to bare your soul to the person you just saw butt-ass naked.
Chanel: [Laughs] Thank you.
Eli: For what?
Chanel: Making me laugh.
Eli: Wait, you talking about the joke though, right? Not--not the nakedness?
Chanel: [Laughs] Yes! The joke. The girl I was telling you about, she made me laugh all the time.
Eli: Yeah, laughing has definitely got lani and i through some tough times.
Chanel: I have to admit, I'm pretty jealous of what you two have.
Eli: You trying to be married with twins?
Chanel: Maybe not twins. But you two make each other happy. What's better than that?
Eli: It was a long, hard road to get here, but... it was definitely worth it.
Chanel: Bet you're glad lani and her nun friend decided to stay celibate in italy.
Eli: What is that supposed to mean?
Chanel: Come on, eli. You must know what it means.
Eli: [Scoffs] What--what are you saying? That lani and kristen almost hooked up?
Kristen: Time goes by so fast, lani. And while I'm in there, rachel will be growing up out here. And there are gonna be so many things that are gonna pull her away from me.
Lani: You're her mother. You will always be in her heart.
Kristen: Not brady's, though.
[Sniffs] No, no, no. Not after the terrible mess I made.
[Laughs] God. I did not mean to hurt kate. I didn't mean to hurt anybody, lani. And I just-- I did it because I was terrified of losing him. Just--it went off the rails.
[Sniffs] And I'm really sorry.
Lani: For what?
Kristen: You must be ashamed to call me your friend.
Brady: Do you think sami actually figured out that it was kristen that was living with us and not susan?
Marlena: Maybe. But--but if sami figured that out, she would've turned kristen in immediately. I--I can't think of any reason that she would actually help kristen.
Brady: Unless there was something in it for her.
Lucas: You're gonna buy your way out of this, aren't you? You're gonna let him shoot me.
Sami: I was just asking the question.
Lucas: No, no. What are you gonna tell will and allie, huh? That this guy murdered their dad?
Sami: All right! Okay! $10 million dollars. That buys both of our freedom?
Xander: As long as your silence comes with it.
Sami: It's a lot of money.
Xander: You just said you're a very rich woman.
Sami: I am. But my cash is linked to an account that ej and i control jointly.
Sami: So I can't just take out the money without ej signing off on it.
Xander: Fine. Why don't you give your hubby a wee call? Tell him you need to make a withdrawal for you and lucas.
Sami: I can'T.
Xander: Why the hell not?
Sami: I-- I just can't do that.
Xander: Is there some reason why your husband wouldn't want to help save both of your lives?
This is the sound of an asthma attack...
Eli: Are you--you know something about lani and kristen that I don't?
Chanel: No, of course not. I was just teasing. Obviously, lani was still too in love with you to have eyes for anyone else.
Eli: That's right. And same goes for kristen and her man. Except kristen has taken her love for brady to a-- a whole 'nother level. A dangerous level.
Chanel: Is that the guy I read about who was in the car accident?
Eli: Yeah. And kristen, the woman who's out of control-- look, I just hope we get her in custody before she hurts anyone else. Especially lani.
Lani: Kristen, I-- I wish you hadn't hurt kate. I wish you hadn't left prison. Again. But you are my friend. And nothing is ever gonna change that.
Kristen: I don't know what I did to deserve you.
Lani: Yeah, you do.
Lani: I was just telling my cousin chanel how close we got at the convent. And as strange and sad as that-- that was, it forged a bond between us that will never be broken.
Kristen: You don't know how much that means to me.
Lani: I'm glad I got to introduce you to these little ones.
Kristen: Me too.
[Laughs] Hey, jules and carver.
Kristen: It was a pleasure to meet the two of you. Take care of each other. And you guys are so, so lucky to have a mom like this.
Lani: [Sighs] Kristen?
Kristen: I know, I know. You need to take me in.
Lani: Yeah, um--
[Sniffs] I do.
Kristen: I'll go quietly.
Lani: Thank you.
Brady: The real question is, how could getting rid of chloe benefit sami?
Marlena: I was stumped by that myself.
Brady: Well, we don't-- we don't have time to sit around and figure it out. I mean, I--I need to make sure that chloe is safe. Need to find her.
Marlena: What could I do?
Brady: [Sighs] You go--you go to the dimera mansion. To see if anybody's seen her or spoken to her?
Marlena: Oh, I promised john I would stay right here with you.
Brady: Marlena, I'm fine. I'm fine. They're--I'm being well taken care of. I just--I couldn't forgive myself if something happened to chloe.
Sami: Look, calling ej isn'T...simple.
Xander: Because of lucas?
Sami: I didn't say that.
Xander: You didn't have to say it. Perhaps there's some bad blood between your current husband and your former one?
Sami: Nope. No.
Lucas: No, no, no. Not at all, not at all. We're actually one big happy blended family.
Lucas: It's just that ej's a little tight in the wallet is all.
Lucas: So, um, you know, maybe sami, if you explain to ej that we got on to kristen separately, and then we actually got stuck here separately, I'm sure he'd--he'd sign off on things, right?
Sami: Yeah, right. Uh, that--that could work.
Xander: See? Not so hard after all. Here. Have ej wire the funds to this account. And... make very clear to him that if he alerts the authorities in any way, we go back to plan a and he becomes a widower.
Sami: Got it.
Xander: Just making sure.
Sami: Right. Got it, thank you.
[Cell phone buttons beeping]
[Line rings] Hi. I'm so glad you picked up. Yeah. Yeah, it's me. I miss you too. Salem? Things are going great here. Yeah. Right, um... yeah, I've been thinking about you a lot. Listen, um... I'm actually calling... because, um... I need $10 million. How do you think they make starburst taste so juicy?
Jake: Thank you.
Gabi: Hey. You okay?
Philip: Yeah. Yeah, I am. I need to call lucas. Tell him to get over here. My mom should be surrounded by people who care about her.
Jake: He's right. Kate shouldn't be alone.
Gabi: Jake, you should go. Go be with her and stay as long as you need to.
Jake: Why don't you come with me?
Marlena: [Chuckles] You really care about chloe, don't you?
Brady: I do, I do.
Marlena: What did that do to your relationship with kristen?
Brady: Kristen--kristen and i have a-- have a daughter together. I mean, I'm always gonna love her.
Brady: I do have-- I do have some strong feelings for chloe.
Marlena: And, of course, kristen realizes that, which-- which puts chloe in a great deal of danger.
Brady: Yeah. Because of me. And I'm not gonna be able to live with myself if-- if some harm comes to chloe as a result of this, so I need-- I need to make sure she's safe. Marlena, please, I need your help with this.
Marlena: I understand. I will-- I'll check with lucas and see if he's seen chloe.
Brady: Thank you.
Eli: Last time kristen was in salem, she convinced lani to look the other way and let her escape. It almost cost her her career and our marriage.
Chanel: Really? Lani's always been such a rule follower.
Eli: Yeah, well, she's got a big heart. And kristen knows how to play people.
[Cell phone ringing] Hey. Where are you?
Lani: I'm with kristen.
Eli: What? Are you okay?
Lani: Everything's fine. She surrendered and agreed to cooperate.
Eli: What about the twins?
Lani: They're good. My dad just picked them up. I'm gonna bring kristen in myself.
Eli: Okay, I'll meet you at the station.
[Cell phone beeps]
Kristen: Uh... is there any way that we could swing by the hospital to see brady? I just--I'd like to explain to him why I did what I did.
Lani: I wish I could. But I should've taken you in an hour ago. I'm sorry.
Sami: Yeah, I'll explain everything to you in detail when I see you. But just please tell the banker to wire the money right away, okay? Yep, yep. That'll take care of everything. I love you too, ej. So much, I--
[Cell phone beeps]
Xander: He'll come through?
Sami: He'll come through.
Xander: Well, he'd better. Otherwise, neither of you two will ever get out of here alive. Does scrubbing grease and food feel like a workout?
Gabi: I thought kate's only supposed to have one visitor at a time.
Jake: Let them throw us out.
Gabi: Are you sure?
Jake: Look, things have been tense between you two since kate and I got together. But... you can't forget. You were friends at one point.
Gabi: Well, frenemies, at least.
Jake: Right, but you brought something out in her.
Gabi: Hang on. You want me to go in there because you think it's gonna make her feel better, or because you think it's gonna make her mad enough to wake up and lay into me for stealing you away?
Jake: If it gets her well, I'm fine with either one.
Lucas: How are we gonna know that the transfer went through?
[Cell phone chimes]
Xander: Oh, look at that. Ask and you shall receive.
Sami: It's there?
Xander: $10 million for a few hours' work. That's not bad.
Sami: So? Can we go now, or what?
Xander: I trust you'll both keep your mouths shut about our deal.
Lucas: Just let us go, okay?
Sami: But have you figured out what you're gonna say to kristen about why you didn't kill us?
Xander: Well, that's for me to worry about, isn't it?
Lucas: But we're good, right? We're safe?
Xander: A deal's a deal. Hey, it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Lucas: All right, come on. Let's go, let's get out of here.
Sami: Wait. Not so fast.
Philip: Hey, you up for a visitor?
Brady: Come on in. Philip, uh... I heard about your mom, and, um, I'm very sorry. Have you heard from lucas?
Philip: Been trying to call him. Keeps going straight to voicemail.
Brady: The same as chloe.
Brady: Marlena told me that chloe went to go talk to lucas about something, and she's been missing ever since.
Philip: You think kristen's gotten to her, too?
Brady: I mean, kristen broke out of prison just to keep chloe away from me. God knows what she's capable of doing right now. I sent marlena to the dimera house to see if she could find her.
Philip: Are you sure that was a good idea? What if you sent her right into danger?
Marlena: Chloe? Chloe, are you here? Chloe! Chloe? Xander? What are you doing here? And with a gun?
Xander: Dr. Evans. Always nice to see you.
Sami: Look, you heard me. I explained to ej that we ended up here separately. But he's still gonna have a lot of questions about why we're paying someone so much money.
Lucas: Yeah, yeah, I can't blame him.
Sami: I'm gonna have to explain eventually.
Lucas: Listen, tell him whatever you think you have to tell him. Just don't tell him that kristen was blackmailing us because we slept together.
Lucas: Well, you definitely don't want to tell him that.
Sami: Of course--
Lucas: Or else xander's not gonna be the only one trying to kill us. Ej will take care of us himself.
Chanel: Hope you appreciate what a great guy you married, cuz.
Lani: I'm sorry you have to go through this again.
Kristen: Well... if anyone had to arrest me, I'm glad it was you. Hey, eli.
Eli: Kristen. Right this way. Have a seat. I'll be right back in. Hey. Are you okay?
Lani: Yeah, um... I'll tell you about it at home.
Eli: I love you.
Lani: I love you.
Eli: See you at home.
Surrendering to lani was the right thing to do.
Kristen: I don't know if it will count much with the da. But I did it for your wife. I don't want her to get in any trouble.
Eli: Yeah, well, if you expect a thank you from me, you're not gonna get it. Kate's in serious condition.
Kristen: I heard. And I wish I could've done things differently, but I was desperate to escape.
Eli: Before you say any more, I'm sure you'd like to call your lawyer.
Kristen: That won't be necessary.
Eli: Okay, well, if you don't want to fight the charges, then I'll just arrange for you to be sent back to statesville.
Kristen: Not what I meant. I'm not going back to statesville. Because if that were to happen, no one would ever see chloe lane again.
