Chad: We can work through this together.

Abigail: It's not about us. It's about me. I... I am overwhelmed. You know, I lost my grandmother. And I have a sister who's trying to ruin my family. A sister that my dad wants to have a relationship with. And I just feel like everything I knew about myself, everything I knew about my life, I don't--just got pulled out from underneath me.

Chad: Lean on me. Please. I will fight to the ends of the earth for you and for us.

Abigail: I love you for saying that.

Chad: [Sniffs]

Abigail: But this is something that I gotta figure out on my own, so please just let me do this-- let me go.

[Emotional music]

Dr. Snyder: When I examined you after your fall, you had not yet told your family about your miscarriage. You said that you would share the news with them in your own way. You didn't mention that you had blamed your sister for losing the baby.

Gwen: Excuse me?

Dr. Snyder: Front page of "the intruder," black and white. You claimed that she pushed you, and the fall caused you to miscarry. But you and I both know you lost the baby before the fall. And I'm not sure I'm comfortable keeping quiet about it.

Gwen: Your comfort has nothing to do with this. You are bound by patient-doctor confidentiality.

Dr. Snyder: [Laughs] Yeah, I don't think the hippocratic oath was intended to enable you to play cruel and dangerous mind games on your sister. And if her mental health is at stake, well, geez--I might have a duty to come forward.

Gwen: No.

Dr. Snyder: As a doctor. And there's something else. I am sick and tired of patients using me and that oath to cover for them.

Gwen: What do you mean, "patients?"

Dr. Snyder: The two of you are gonna learn. It is not a good idea to underestimate me.

Gwen: Who are you talking about?

Dr. Snyder: That psychopath, jan spears.

Jan: You are such a good man to be concerned for a killer who has no problem lying to you, cheating on you. And after you've been so loyal to her, it's-- it's terribly unfair.

Shawn: Yeah. Yeah, it is. But belle, she couldn't control herself yet again. So all these years of loving her and supporting her, sacrificing for her, where does that leave me? Just alone.

Jan: You're not alone, shawn. As long as I'm around, you'll never be alone.

Shawn: Jan, what the hell do you think you're doing?

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

[Soft orchestration]

Gwen: Jan spears? The lunatic who was in a coma and just came out of it on april fools' day?

Jan: No, she didn'T.

Gwen: Well, that's what the paper said.

Dr. Snyder: Well, the paper said what she wanted everyone to think, including me.

[Sighs] But she actually woke up weeks earlier.

Gwen: She woke up weeks earlier, and you didn't notice. Did they not cover that in med school?

Dr. Snyder: Will you watch your tone with me?

Gwen: Sorry.

Dr. Snyder: Do you have any idea how hard I work to get to this point, what I gave up? I don't have a life. I have this job. And that woman made a fool of me. And that's exactly what you're trying to do. You're trying to make a fool of me. And I'm not gonna let you do it.

Gwen: No.

Dr. Snyder: Yes, yes, yes. What are you---flinging doctor-patient confidentiality in my face?

Gwen: I just--I thought--

Dr. Snyder: Yeah. You thought. You know what I remember? I remember your father. The night of your miscarriage, he was here. His concern. After all the things that you did to his family, he clearly had forgiven you.

[Laughs] Maybe--gosh-- maybe he even loves you. Is that important to you? Is it?

Gwen: Yes.

Dr. Snyder: Okay, good. So what do you think would happen to that forgiveness if I showed him medical records, dated and logged, of your miscarriage? Yeah. I could prove to him that that little tumble down the stairs didn't have anything to do with you losing that baby.

Gwen: Why-- why are you telling me this?

Dr. Snyder: Because you and i are, uh--gah, what's the-- gosh, that stupid expression-- we're gonna take our doctor-patient relationship to the next level.

Chad: Is this what you need?

Abigail: Yeah.

Chad: Then you should go.

Abigail: Thank you.

Chad: What are we gonna tell the kids?

Abigail: I talked to 'em. I told 'em mommy needed to go spend time with her mommy, and we'll video chat every day.

Chad: How long are you gonna be gone?

Abigail: I don't know. I mean, it can't be long because of the kids. I just--gah, I feel terrible leaving, I just-- but I have to go, so I can come back, and I can be a better mother. We're lucky, aren't we? Got such sweet kids.

Chad: Yeah, we are.

Abigail: [Sighs]

Chad: Look me in the eyes now. Tell me what you see.

Abigail: You love me. And I love you.

[Emotional music]


Chad: [Sobbing]


[Both breathing heavily]

[Ominous music]

Ben: Wait, wait, wait. I can't--I can't do this. We women are in the know about everything.

[Phone ringing]

[Phone chimes]

Belle: Hey, dad. Where are you?

John: At the hospital.

Belle: How's brady?

John: He's doing better, honey.

Belle: Good. Uh, I'm actually on my way over there now.

John: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa; hold on. Visiting hours are over, sweetheart.

Belle: Uh, actually, I'm coming to talk to you.

John: Something wrong?

Belle: I hope not.

Jan: What's wrong? Why are you looking at me like that, like I'm dirt?

Shawn: When I convince jan that I believed beyond a shadow of a doubt that you killed charlie. Then, you know, then I'm horrified--I'm horrified, and then I realize-- I realize how selfish you are. By putting our family and our happiness at risk by taking the law into your own hands.

Belle: You think jan's gonna believe you?

Shawn: Yes, I do. 'Cause it's exactly what she wants to believe.

Belle: [Scoffs] And then what?

Shawn: Then I'm gonna-- and then I'm gonna let her hold my hands at the heartbreak. And then I'm gonna get her close, and then I'm gonna get her to admit what she did.

Jan: What's going on with you?

Shawn: Look, I just--

Jan: You still hate me. You--you're just trying to trick me. You can't even stand to kiss me.

Shawn: No, no, damn it, jan. We're in a public place.

Jan: And you don't wanna be seen with me.

Shawn: No, I just don't want anybody seeing us, you know, like--like that. Come on; think about it. Belle--belle shot charlie. John--he put you in a coma. Can you imagine what would happen if they found out about us?

Jan: You're watching out for me?

Shawn: Yeah, I'm--look, I'm scared--scared for you. But this is my fault. It's all my fault. I mean, to talk to you of all places, here? You can't keep a secret in salem. You can'T.

Jan: This is the first time in my life that anyone's trying to protect me.

Shawn: Listen, I, you know, I don't know what I would do if something happened to you, jan.

Jan: I've waited so long to hear you say that. And I can't even hug you.

Shawn: No. No, no, no. Not here. Not here. But we'll, uh, we'll figure out someplace else.

Claire: Ben...

Ben: I know this doesn't make any sense, but I-- I just can't do this. I--I--I know ciara doesn't want me anymore, but she's still my wife.

Claire: Ben, she's in south africa with theo.

Ben: I said it doesn't make any sense, I know that. But--[Sighs] I just feel like I'm betraying her, and I can't do that, claire. I still love her.

Claire: I know you do. And I know that those divorce papers were a real kick in the stomach.

Ben: Yeah, they were.

Claire: My god. I am such a jerk.

[Laughs] You come over here all upset about your divorce, and my big solution is to just, out of nowhere, throw myself at you.

Ben: No. No. It wasn't out of nowhere.

Gwen: Right. Listen. I have already told my father that abigail did not push me, not on purpose.

Dr. Snyder: But you didn't tell him that you weren't pregnant when you fell, did you? Mm. And you didn't mention anything to that chad fellow, the really, really, really, really rich baby daddy. Hm. I didn't think so.

[Sighs] No, you don't want them to know, do you? That would not work out well for you.

Gwen: No.

Dr. Snyder: Well, then it seems I'm the one that has the upper hand.

Gwen: Uh, okay. You can screw things up with my father and with chad. But I swear to god, you try anything at all, I will--

Dr. Snyder: Mm-mm. Ms. Rizczech, ms. Rizczech.

Gwen: I will scream. I will scream loudly. I will claw your face.

Dr. Snyder: Please, I-- stop, stop. I'm not gonna violate you on the exam table. Trust me. I have not been driven wild by your beauty.

Gwen: But you just said--

Dr. Snyder: That we are going to redefine our relationship.

Gwen: What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Dr. Snyder: It means you're gonna work for me.

[Emotional music]

Chad: [Sighs]

[Phone ringing]

[Phone chimes]

[Clears throat] Chad dimera.

Jack: Chad, it's jack.

Chad: Uh, jack, hi.

Jack: I need to talk to abigail.

Chad: Oh, um, I'm guessing she didn't tell you.

Jack: That she's leaving town? No. No, I just heard that from julie. But it's really important that I talk to her before she goes.

Chad: Yeah, that's the thing. She, um-- she's gone. She, uh--she left. On the outside, I looked fine.

Jack: Thanks, harold. Thank you. He's right here.

Chad: Uh, I--abby's not here. I told you that.

Jack: I know, I know. You told me that, but I came here to see you.

Chad: Okay.

Jack: Are you okay?

Chad: No, not really, jack. What's up?

Jack: Well, to begin with, I'm not thrilled that abigail left, but leaving without calling me. Did you guys have a fight?

Chad: No.

Jack: So why the rush?

Chad: She didn't want to be in the house anymore where gwen lost the baby.

Jack: Well--

[Scoffs] Move. I mean, god knows you can afford it.

Chad: It's not just that. Okay? Yeah. It's the guilt.

Jack: Well, that's why I'm here. She doesn't have to feel guilty anymore.

Chad: Well, uh, I'm not sure that's true.

Jack: Damn it, chad. Gwen just admitted that she was lying. Abigail didn't push her, and now abigail's left before I could tell her that.

Gwen: What do you want from me?

Dr. Snyder: I think you should get dressed before we have our little conversation. Might be more appropriate.

Gwen: [Scoffs] And you accused me of playing mind games.

Dr. Snyder: [Laughs] I'll give you a few minutes, and then I'll be back.

Gwen: [Huffs]


Claire: What do you mean that kiss wasn't out of nowhere?

Ben: Well, I didn't mean that we had feelings for each other. It was just that we spent so much time together the last few months, and, you know, we got close.

Claire: I felt that. I didn't know that you did.

Ben: I mean, claire, you believed me when nobody else did. You stood by me. When I believed that ciara was still alive, I didn't have anything else to go on other than a crazy dream and a crazier psychic, and yet, you were still there. I don't know how the hell I would've done it without you.

Claire: Well, I think it was kind of a two-way street. You know, I was pretty lost myself. And working with you to find ciara, becoming friends, that has meant everything to me. And the last thing that I would wanna do is screw up this friendship. I shouldn't have kissed you. I--

Ben: No, hey, hey. It's--it's--it's okay. It's okay, really. I know. You were just trying to-- I mean, I just showed up here a mess. It's my fault.

Claire: No, I think we both know that it was my fault.

Ben: No, you know, how about this? We split the blame 50/50, and we decide right now that we will not let this screw up our friendship.

Claire: Good plan.


Ben: Good plan, okay. I should probably get going.

Claire: Are you sure you don't wanna wait for mom?

Ben: No, I think maybe you were right. She couldn't help me. And as much as I wanna fight this divorce, I'm probably just postponing the inevitable.

[Emotional music]

[Door thuds]

[Elevator chimes]

John: Hey. There she is.

Belle: Hi.

John: Hey, izzy.

Belle: Oh.

John: Oh.

Belle: So brady's gonna be okay.

John: Doctor said he's gonna be just fine. He's sleeping right now. Sit down.

Belle: Okay. Good.

John: Yeah.

Belle: Well, I guess you're just gonna sit here in this uncomfortable chair, flipping through your old magazines, just so you're here when he wakes up, right? What a dad.

John: [Laughs] Well, it's not like I have anything else to do.

Belle: Mm. Well, I know how you hate doing nothing.

John: [Chuckles]

Belle: So any word on chloe?

John: Mm, no. No, not yet. So you said you wanted to see me? It sounded kind of urgent. What's up?

Belle: I have news.

John: Mm. Doesn't sound like it's good news.

Belle: I heard from justin.

John: Ah.

Belle: The judge is refusing to throw out the recording of you saying that I killed charlie.

John: [Groans] Yeah. It's okay. I can fix this. I'll just tell the jury that I made a mistake because i haven't been in my right mind.

Belle: Listen, dad. That's not gonna work. It's just gonna look like you're protecting me.

John: No, it's okay. 'Cause I'll come up with something.

Belle: You don't need to worry about it because shawn and I have it under control.


John: What exactly is that supposed to mean?

Shawn: So I'm gonna, uh, get a room at the salem inn.

Jan: Really? For us?

Shawn: Yeah. But we gotta be careful.

Jan: What will you tell belle?

Shawn: I'll tell her that i can't stand to sleep under the same roof with her anymore.

Jan: And that's--that's the truth, isn't it? I mean, I saw that fight you two had, so it's over between you two, right?

Shawn: Yeah. It's definitely over. So let me go get a room. And then, uh, I don't know-- maybe you could stop by later?

Jan: In a not public place.

Shawn: Exactly. So why don't you come by in, like, an hour? And we will continue what we're talking about.

Jan: Sounds like a really great idea.

Shawn: All right. See you soon.

Jan: [Sighs] Everything I did, it was all worth it. If you printed out directions to get here today,

Chad: Gwen told you she was lying?

Jack: Yeah. Yeah, she said that abigail and she did argue, but that abigail didn't push her. Abigail said some things about her baby, and gwen-- gwen wanted to punish her. But that in the end, it all was just an accident.

Chad: Right.

Jack: That's it? I would've thought there'd be more of a reaction.

Chad: What, am I supposed to be stunned that gwen was lying, trying to hurt abigail for the 307th time?

Jack: All right, all right. I know I could biased because gwen is my daughter. But she was sincerely sorry for what she did, which is why she told me the truth.

Chad: Okay. Good. Hope she feels good about herself.

Jack: Well, damn it! What about abigail? We should call her right now, let her know what happened. It doesn't matter why gwen told me. What matters is that she did. So abigail doesn't have to feel guilty anymore.

Chad: Oh, please. Abigail always knew that gwen was lying. She knows she didn't push her down the stairs. That's not why she feels guilty.

Jack: Well, you just--you said that she felt guilty--

Chad: Jack, she feels guilty because she started the fight that led to the accident. Abby knew gwen was pregnant, and she still started screaming at her. Gwen fell trying to get away from her. So abby thinks that gwen wouldn't have lost the baby if it weren't for her.

Jack: Well, we have to make her see that that's just not true.

Chad: There's more to it than that, okay? She thinks that I blame her for what happened to the baby-- to my daughter.

Jack: Well, what did you say?

Chad: Nothing.

Jack: [Exhales] Why? Because you do blame her?

[Dramatic music]

[Knock on door]

Dr. Snyder: Okay. There you go.

Gwen: What's this?

Dr. Snyder: It's your assignment. So I need you to just take it to that address right there and give it to whoever opens the door.

Gwen: What is it that I am delivering?

Dr. Snyder: [Chuckles] Uh, well, that is on a need-to-know basis, and you don't need to know.

Gwen: Okay, I--I don't quite understand. Why did you tell me about jan spears? Are you worried about your job? Does the hospital know that--

Dr. Snyder: I think you need to stop asking questions and focus on getting that to the right location. Understood?

Gwen: Yeah. Understood. So then I just do this, and that's it, then? You won't say anything about when I lost the baby?

Dr. Snyder: No. As long as you do that once a week.

Gwen: What?

Dr. Snyder: Oh, ahh. Did I forget to mention? Yeah. This isn't a one-off thing. You are gonna be my personal courier.

Turns out deb's constipation

with belly pain

Chad: I know gwen falling down the stairs was an accident. Okay, but when abby found out about the baby, she was-- she was so angry. And she had every right to be. But it was--it was all that she could think about.

Jack: You think she should've just gotten over it?

Chad: No, jack. That's not what I think. I think--I think that this is obviously all my fault. And it was--it was too much for abby to take, okay? And it's--

[Sighs] It's natural that she was-- she was angry, but she was obsessed. I mean, I mean look at everything that she did before she even found out about the baby. I mean, she kidnapped gwen. She tried to drug her.

Jack: Well, she thought that gwen killed her grandmother.

Chad: Yes, and after every-- everything that gwen had put her through, it was just-- it was too much. And don't get me wrong; I believe that everything abby put gwen through, she deserved. But it's--


Jack: But?

Chad: But when she found out gwen was pregnant... we have children. Abby and I know firsthand how fragile and precious they are.

Jack: Yeah, they are.

Chad: She and gwen got in a fight. Abby threatened her at the top of the staircase. I know she didn't push gwen. But gwen was pregnant. And abby knew it. And she still put that baby in harm's way.

Jack: You do blame abigail.

Chad: [Laughs] No. I--I don't have the right to judge anyone. Maybe... maybe we've just all been through too much.

Jack: Looks like abigail was right to go.

Chad: Maybe so.

Jack: She needed time. She needs time to think about all of this, to get through it. I mean, how could she or gwen get through any of it if they live in the same town, especially with gwen living with me?

Chad: Is she still moving in?

Jack: She needs the support from somewhere, especially now.

Chad: And how is she?

Jack: Well, about as well as can be expected.

Gwen: [Sighs] Your personal courier?

Dr. Snyder: Was that not clear?

Gwen: No, it was not clear. And I'm not sure I'm okay with that.

Dr. Snyder: Oh. Why, oh, let's see. You recognize that number?

Gwen: Oh. That's my father'S.

Dr. Snyder: Yeah. Chad dimera's number is, of course, publicly unavailable, but luckily, I was able to find it in your contact list, so, uh, who do you think I should call first?


Gwen: Give me the damn envelope.

Chad: She went to see dr. Snyder? Is something wrong?

Jack: No. No, no. It's just a routine follow-up visit, but I said I'd go with her, but she said she'd be more comfortable going by herself. But I should head out. Get back home before...

[Phone chimes] Gwen does. Julie didn't exactly roll out the welcome wagon. Damn it.

Chad: Something wrong?

Jack: [Sighs] I gotta go into the office.

Chad: I could go check on gwen.

Jack: Oh, no. You don't have to do that.

Chad: It's not a big deal. I know how julie can be. I've been on her wrong side more than once.

Jack: Well, who hasn't? But... are you sure?

Chad: Yeah, go to work.

Jack: [Sighs] Well, okay. Thanks, um... look. Don't give up on abigail. I really believe the two of you can make it through all of this together.

Chad: I hope you're right.

[Reflective music]

Jan: There was a long, torturous journey, but now it's time for the happily-ever-after.

Shawn: Nice day for a ball game, huh?

Jan: [Laughs] You can say that again. But it feels like we've done this before.

Shawn: Well, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. What are you waiting for? Batter up.

Jan: Ow! Hey! Ah! That hurt!

Dr. Snyder: Do you think I care?

Jan: [Exhales]

Dr. Snyder: Do you know how much trouble I'm in because of you?

Jan: I have no idea what you're talking about.

Dr. Snyder: What I'm talking about is you faking a coma when you were under my care.

I'm erin.

-And I'm margo.

Belle: Trust me. The last thing I want is shawn anywhere near jan. I just--I think this is the only way to really get her to confess.

[Phone ringing]

John: Mm-hmm.

Belle: Mm. Shawn?

Shawn: Hey. Just wanna let you know everything is going according to plan. Jan totally bought the fight.

Belle: So it paid off.

Shawn: Yeah, it looks like it. But did you have to throw that drink in my face?

Belle: Did you really have to throw philip in my face?

Shawn: Well, I was trying to make sure it was convincing.

Belle: Yeah, well, you almost convinced me. Anyway, it seems like she thinks we're on the outs, right?

Shawn: Yeah, yeah. Looks like it. But I gotta admit. I--look--I almost blew it.

Belle: What?

Shawn: [Sighs] Jan, she-- she kissed me.

Belle: She kissed you?

John: Oh, god.

Belle: Wait. Okay, wait. What do you mean, "you almost blew it?"

Shawn: Well, I mean, i couldn't exactly cover my revulsion or my disgust.

Belle: So how did you get out of it?

Shawn: Look, I--we were at the square, and I told her that we needed a little bit more privacy. So now I'm standing here at the salem inn, and I'm waiting for her. But it feels like I'm waiting for a firing squad.

Belle: Okay. You know what, shawn? This--this is above and beyond the call of duty. I just--I think maybe we should slow this down. My dad thinks it's a bad idea.

Shawn: This is your life that we're talking about. I'm gonna do whatever it takes to get to the truth.

[Phone chimes]

Jan: I faked my coma? What are you talking about?

Dr. Snyder: Yeah, you really didn't quite think things through, did you? Did you forget about surveillance footage?

Jan: Surveillance footage. Huh. That's an invasion of my privacy.

Dr. Snyder: [Laughs] Well, why don't you argue that with the detective with a lawyer wife?

Jan: What?

Dr. Snyder: Oh, yeah. They're the ones that demanded to see the footage. There you were, sneaking out of your room weeks before you supposedly woke up.

Jan: What were their names?

Dr. Snyder: I don't remember. I was a little upset.

Jan: What did they look like?

Dr. Snyder: [Scoffs] She was, um, blonde. She had longish hair.

Jan: Kind of squat with an irritating voice?

Dr. Snyder: No, actually. She was really attractive.

Jan: No, no. She's not. But him? Incredibly handsome, right? Piercing blue eyes, chiseled cheek bones?

Dr. Snyder: [Sighs] Brady. Detective brady.

Jan: Lying bastard. He was playing me. And so was she. Well... now it's time for me to turn the tables. All's fair in love and war. And this-- this is war. Not everybody wants the same thing.

Ben: Oh, my god. It's you.

Gwen: [Huffs] Blackmailing sack of-- I suppose I don't have much choice in the matter though, do I?

[Intriguing music]

My god. I'm a bloody drug mule.

Belle: So shawn's at the salem inn right now waiting for jan, and I don't know. With any luck, we may have our confession today.

John: Let's hope.

Belle: Yeah. Let's hope. All right, I think I need to get back home and, uh, fill claire in on everything that's going on before she hears it from someone else.

[Intense, racing music]

[Phone ringing]

[Phone chimes]

Shawn: Jan, hey. I've been waiting for you. Where are you?

Jan: I'm sorry. I got held up. I ran into an old friend.
