Justin: Hey, Steve. What's up?
Steve: Hey, Justin. Uh, I'm callin' about our dinner tonight.
Justin: Right. Right. Bonnie is getting ready as we speak. Um, I made the reservation for 7:00. I'm sure Kayla told you.
Steve: She did, yeah, but, um, I'm here in her office to pick her up and she's not here yet, so I think we should, uh, put the dinner off.
Kayla: What? Put the dinner off? I- I just got here. I'm ready to go.
Justin: [Sighs] I heard that, Steve.
Steve: Right. Well, I guess we're on for tonight.
Justin: But you wanted to cancel yet again, didn't you? Not because Kayla was working late, which she obviously isn't, but much as you say you want to get to know Bonnie better, you just can't bring yourself to do it, can you?
Steve: Justin, listen...
Justin: Just admit it, Steve. You're thinking, "To hell with Justin and what he wants. Why should I make an effort to get to know Bonnie Lockhart better when I've already made up my mind up about her. The truth is, there's nothing she can do or say that's going to change that decision because I just can't stand the woman."
Roman: Evening, Mr. Mayor. Abe.
Abe: [Chuckles] Oh, Roman. So how you doin', buddy?
Roman: Well, uh, no complaints. Just taking a little break before the, uh, dinner rush. Anyway, I, uh, didn't mean to intrude.
Abe: Oh, no, not at all. I was just, uh, thinking.
Roman: About Tom and Alice?
Abe: Actually....Paulina Price.
Chantal: So...? On a scale of 1 to 10, how'd the pie come out?
Paulina: Mmm...Yeah. That is a little slice of heaven, right there. Almost as good as your grandmother makes.
Chantal: See? And we did it together.
Paulina: You sound surprised.
Chantal: I am.
Paulina: Oh, come on. We used to make sweet potato pie together every Thanksgiving.
Chantal: Yeah, but when's the last time we spent the holidays together?
Paulina: Hmm...I guess it's been a few years.
Chantal: You were off doing your thing, and I was doing mine...and when we ended up here, we haven't stopped fighting since we saw each other. But today was different. Once we put on these aprons, there was no stress, no drama. Just me hanging out with my mama, and it feels great.
Paulina: It feels great to me, too, baby. [Chuckles]
Chloe: Thank you again for offering to put me up while I recover.
Philip: It's totally my pleasure. I want to make sure you have everything you need.
Chloe: Shawn! Hey!
Chloe: What are you doing here?
Shawn: Uh, Belle wanted to see Jan.
Philip: Is she out of her coma?
Shawn: No, but after all the hell she's put all of us through, Belle wanted to see with her own eyes that Jan's not going to be able to hurt anyone ever again.
Roman: Must be quite a woman.
Abe: Paulina? Yes, she is.
Roman: What's the-- what's the, uh, connection?
Abe: She's Lani's aunt, and she came here to meet the twins and decided to stay.
Roman: To be closer to family?
Abe: Partly...her-- her daughter's here as well. You know, Paulina is one of the premiere commercial real estate developers in the country, and she's spearheading the transformation of The Square.
Roman: Oh, the indoor marketplace.
Roman: That's a great idea.
Abe: Well, she noticed the lack of diversity and, uh, that we need more women-owned, BIPOC-owned, LGBTQ-owned businesses, and she's-- she's making it happen.
Roman: Hmm. Well, it's about time.
Abe: [Laughs] I tell you...Paulina, her passions, it's-- it's infectious. I mean, she's got this remarkable balance of drive and charm, and she's also very funny. [Chuckles] And charismatic.
Roman: Why, Abraham. You sound a little smitten.
Chantal: [Sighs] So, does this mean you accept my apology for being a hot mess since I got to Salem?
Paulina: Well, like I said the other night...saying you're sorry, that's a good start, but it's your actions that count.
Chantal: Look, I'm serious about this bakery, Mom. I want to turn my life around and support myself.
Paulina: So, no more marrying men for their money? No more extorting your own mother?
Chantal: I will never do anything like that again. It's just not the person I want to be. I wanna be like you.
Paulina: Hmm? What, rich?
Chanel: Well, sure, I want the finer things. But I also wanna change people's lives. Like you're doing with the square. I mean, think of all the lives you're changing, including mine.
Paulina: I really do think that sweet bits is gonna be a big success.
Chanel: When you said you were proud of me, that meant everything to me. I'm proud of you too. I've always admired how much of an amazing businesswoman you are, but you're also an amazing person. And you could've took this opportunity to maximize your profit, but instead, you're using it to help people.
Paulina: Well, tom and alice you seem like lovely people. Just like your friend marlena. I almost feel guilty for lying to her just now about what I really have planned for this little square of yours.
[Chuckles] Honey, listen.
Chanel: What is it, mama?
Paulina: I really feel guilty about something. And I need to tell you just what it is.
Belle: I know you hate me. You always have. Because of your twisted obsession with my husband. Your deluded fantasy that if you could just get rid of me, you could have shawn. And this time, you did it by trying to frame me for murder. I mean, yes, charlie dale was a terrible person, but... you hardly knew him. And you murdered him in cold blood just to send me to prison. And even after I pleaded guilty, you still went after my daughter. You left claire, who you said was your friend, tied up at that cabin, hoping that her own father would burn her to death. And you almost executed chloe, leaving her little boy without parents. But guess what? You failed. Claire and chloe are safe, and I am free. And shawn and I are gonna spend the rest of our lives in wedded bliss. And even after everything you've done to us, there is no way in hell you get a pass. I'm gonna make sure of that.
Certain hpv-related cancers?
Roman: I am sensing romantic possibility. Have you and paulina taken it there?
Abe: Oh, you know, we've been close a few times, but I don't know, I'm not sure it's a good idea.
Roman: What, you don't wanna mix business and pleasure? That it?
Abe: I don't think paulina would have a problem with it. But I don't know, maybe I'm old-fashioned. And maybe I'm hesitant because paulina is tamara's younger sister.
Roman: Tamara and you have been over for years.
Abe: Well, that's true.
Roman: For what it's worth, I don't think that ought to get in the way of you becoming involved with paulina, I mean, if there's a connection that way. Forget the guilt, man. Go for it.
Chanel: What do you feel guilty about?
[Chuckles] About having dessert before dinner.
Paulina: Well, I always said "eat healthy, and then we'll talk about sweets."
Chanel: Yeah, when I was, like, five.
Paulina: But I still believe that.
Chanel: Ugh, come on. One time is not gonna hurt us.
Paulina: No. Well, come on. To make up for setting a bad example, I'd like to take you out to eat, my treat.
Chanel: Oh, you don't have to.
Paulina: Uh-uh, uh-uh, no arguments, no arguments. Come on, let's go.
Steve: Justin, I thought kayla might be working late.
Justin: Like hell you did.
Kayla: Hey, justin. Well, it turns out that I'm not working late, and so we will be at julie's place on time. I'm looking forward to it. So we'll see you then, okay?
[Phone beeps] What was that all about?
Steve: I was trying to get out of the dinner.
Justin: Look, I know it wasn't very good to cancel at the last minute like that, but i just figured, you know, they'd be okay having dinner on their own.
Kayla: No, they wouldn'T. Not when they are planned to have it with us. And you know damn well how hurtful this is to justin that you will not even attempt to accept bonnie as somebody important in his life.
Steve: Look, kayla, I don't like being a phony. I don't like having to be friendly to someone who made a mess of my sister's life. And I really don't understand what justin sees in her.
Kayla: Well, you know what? Relationships are complicated. Who knows what two people see in each other? It may be completely incomprehensible to other people other than two people in the relationship. But you know what? If bonnie makes justin happy, then I say, "swell." Let's go to dinner.
Steve: Okay. Let's go to dinner.
Justin: Hey. Wow, you look beautiful. And shiny. Well, we're all set for dinner, and...ready to go?
Bonnie: Oh, yeah, I guess. I'm just a little nervous, you know? Didn't go too well last time we saw steve and kayla.
Justin: Yeah, well, you know what, everything is going to be just fine. They're going to get to know you better and start to see you the way I see you.
Bonnie: Yeah. You know, I just need a little time to primp, okay? So you go ahead, all right?
Justin: Primp? You look beautiful. I can wait.
Bonnie: No, no, I don't wanna make you late. And besides, I won't be that long, I promise. So you just go, and I'll see you in a few.
Justin: Okay, well, if you're sure--
Bonnie: Oh, yeah, I'm sure.
Justin: All right. See you there.
Bonnie: See you there.
Belle: I bet you think you're gonna get away with everything again, don't you? Not this time. No. This time, you don't get to just sleep your way out of being punished. You don't get to just lie there like nothing ever happened. You don't get to torment me and family and not pay for your crimes. I'm here to tell you, jan, no more tricks. No more stunts. You are done torturing my family and terrorizing my friends. It is over, bitch. It ends now.

Allie: Chocolate mousse or apple pie?
Tripp: Why not both?
Allie: There's also cheesecake.
Tripp: Ooh, that also works.
Allie: I wonder if I'll have to learn how to make cheesecake. And apple pie. For the bakery, I mean.
Tripp: How's that going, by the way?
Allie: Tripp, I am so excited. I mean, I have the chance to go into business with my friend and make money and change the square for the better. It's just--it's more than i could have ever hoped for.
Tripp: Oh, and look who's here.
Chanel: Hey. Mama, I want you to meet somebody. This is--
Paulina: Oh, I knew exactly who you are.
Kayla: It's pretty good. Pretty cute.
Steve: Hey, look who's here.
Kayla: Hey. Hi, justin.
Kayla: Where's bonnie?
Justin: She'll be here in just a few minutes. She wasn't quite ready when i left, and she didn't wanna make us both late.
Steve: Ah, we wouldn't have minded.
Justin: Listen, steve, I'm sorry if I was a little harsh on the phone.
Steve: No, dude, please don't apologize. It was wrong of me to try to cancel at the last minute.
Kayla: Steve has decided, as have I, that we're gonna try with bonnie. Because we know how much you care about her. In fact, that's all we need to know.
Bonnie: Hello, everyone.
Bonnie: Sorry I'm late.
Justin: Okay. Here we go.
Bonnie: Thank you.
Justin: Uh, you look nice.
Bonnie: Oh, why, thank you, justin. So good to see you, kayla, steve. I'm so glad we could do this. You know, I'm just hoping we can make it a regular occurrence.
Shawn: Belle? What's going on?
[Beeping stops] Belle, what happened? Please tell me that this is not you. Please tell me that you did not pull the plug. Why hide your skin if dupixent
Belle: Nothing; it just started beeping.
Shawn: Is she okay?
She seems fine now. There's no changes in her condition.
Shawn: You didn't answer my question. What happened, belle? Please tell me that you did not intentionally unplug that ventilator.
Philip: Who cares if she did? Jan deserves it. She almost killed your daughter and chloe.
Shawn: Oh, shut up, phillip. Do you have any idea how much trouble you could get into?
Belle: Just relax. When I pulled the plug, I wasn't trying to kill jan.
Shawn: So you did do it on purpose.
Belle: Yes. To prove that she's faking.
Justin: So I guess we should start with drinks.
Steve: That sounds good.
Justin: Bonnie, I assume you'd like the usual kamikaze?
Bonnie: [Laughs] I would not. I would like a white wine, please.
Steve: White wine, huh?
Bonnie: Mm-hmm. Yes, dry. Preferably a chardonnay.
Justin: Uh, sure.
Bonnie: Yes. Ooh. This...pricks fixy menu looks interesting.
Justin: Prix fixe.
[Laughs] Of course. I guess I need to brush up on my french.
Steve: Okay. All right. What's going on here? What are you doing?
Steve: Are you trying to impersonate my sister or what?
Bonnie: No, I'm not trying to impersonate anyone. I'm just trying to have a nice evening.
Steve: You're dressed like adrienne. You're talking like adrienne. You ordered dry white wine like adrienne.
Justin: Steve, may I remind you that adrienne was not only your sister, but she was my wife. The mother of my children.
Bonnie: I'm not trying to start anything--
Justin: And so for you to go on like this is not just insulting and hurtful to bonnie, but you know what? It's not really sitting well with me either.
Steve: Okay, okay, so do you expect me to just ignore the fact that bonnie has decided to channel my sister, your late wife? Are we supposed to find this comforting? Funny? What?
Kayla: Steve, please.
Steve: Oh, do you really think that this ridiculous adrienne imitation is going to endear you to us? It's gonna do anything but. So you know what? You should just be yourself, bonnie. Because this pathetic adrienne act, it's unbearable.
Roman: Okay, if I'm not mistaken, valerie was the last person that you were seriously involved with, right?
Abe: Yeah, that's right.
Roman: Okay, that was a while ago.
Abe: And your point?
Roman: My point is that i think maybe it's time you get back out there.
Abe: [Laughs] You're making quite the hard sell.
Roman: [Chuckles] I don't want you to blow your chance like I did.
Abe: What chance is that?
Roman: Well, a few months ago, I talked to kate. I tried to convince her that maybe she and I should give it another shot. She made it very clear to me that she was committed to somebody else.
Abe: Jake dimera, I presume.
Roman: Yeah, and I told her that he was not a good fit for her, and she told me that i would always have a very special place in her heart.
Abe: Oh, ouch!
Roman: Yeah, one of those. Yeah. So that door's closed. But I'm thinking your door is open. So if you look and you see some happiness on that side, I say go through that damn door.
Paulina: Of course I know who this is.
Chanel: You do?
Paulina: Chanel's mama? I'm the one who picked up the tab for that champagne brunch she tried to stick you with.
Tripp: It's very nice to see you again. Chanel.
Paulina: "Hey"? That's all you have to say to this young man after you tried to run out on a huge bar tab?
Chanel: I couldn't pay. You cut off all my credit cards, remember? And besides, tripp and I are cool now.
Tripp: We are. It's really all good.
Chanel: Anyway, he's not the person I wanted to introduce you to.
Paulina: So who is this?
Chanel: Mama, I'd like you to meet allie, and there is something very important about the two of us that you need to know. Shingles?
Chanel: Allie's the one I was telling you about earlier. She's gonna be working with me at the bakery. Allie, I'd like you to meet my mother, paulina price.
Allie: Hi; it's very nice to meet you.
Paulina: No offense, honey, but what exactly qualifies you to be part of my project?
Chanel: Well, I told you, she's really smart, and her family's secret donut recipe is gonna put sweet bits on the map.
Paulina: Well, your family's pie recipe could just as easily do that, but coming out of the gate, don't you think you should be selling items that reflect your history and heritage, and your first hires, shouldn't they be people of color?
Chanel: Well, as the owner, I can hire whomever I want, and I want her.
Allie: Ms. Price, I want you to know that when chanel first offered me this opportunity, i had a lot of the same reservations that you do, and if she wants to hire someone else, I will step aside.
Paulina: So you don't really need the job.
Allie: Oh, no, I do. Very much. And I'm really grateful to have it. I'm a single mother, and I've been relying on my friends and family to keep me afloat. But I am determined to stand on my own two feet and make a good example for my son. And I also want you to know that I really support everything that you're doing for salem. I mean, really, I'm so honored to be a part of it. I think it's amazing. And the square is very special to me. It was named after my family, and I know that my great-grandparents are looking down from heaven, smiling on all of the fabulous work that you're doing. And speaking of fabulous, this look is beyond. I can totally see where chanel gets her sense of style.
Paulina: Oh, I like her.
Belle: Three times, shawn! She has been in a coma three times. The first time, legitimate, right? The second time started off legitimate, but we all know how that ended up. But this is an act.
Shawn: And you think that the doctors wouldn't know?
Belle: They didn't last time.
Shawn: Belle, snyder, he got fooled once, but he's not gonna get fooled again, and neither is kayla.
Belle: You talked to kayla?
Shawn: Hell yes, I did. I insisted that she examine jan herself, and she agrees with snyder. Okay, this is a coma, and it's real.
Bonnie: Okay, I'll be myself. And as myself, steve, I'd like to say that I feel like a damn fool.
Steve: I wonder why.
Bonnie: And not because I'm trying to look like adrienne so you'd maybe like me more. But because I was actually looking forward to this night. See, ever since we agreed to have this date a few days ago, I've thought about almost nothing else. Worrying about what to wear and trying to think of interesting conversations to bring up so you would think that I was smart. Or at least smart enough. I so, so wanted to make a good impression tonight. But not for me. It was for justin.
Kayla: I'm really sorry about this, bonnie.
Bonnie: No, no, no. I'm a fool. 'Cause I thought that maybe if i looked a little like adrienne and acted like her, maybe, maybe, you'd have just the teensiest bit of respect for me.
Bonnie: But I can't do it anymore. I am sick and tired of trying to prove to you two that I am worthy of justin, especially because... especially because I know damn well I'm not. Now, we may not agree on a whole lot of things, but we can agree on that, can't we? Justin is a wonderful man. And he deserves a hell of a lot better than the likes of me. Hmm? Struggling to manage my type 2 diabetes
Belle: I was so sure she was faking. I was just trying to protect claire and, you know, protect everyone that I care about. I lost control.
Shawn: Everything's okay now. But I want you to know you don't have to be scared of jan. She's not gonna hurt us ever again.
Belle: We've said that so many times.
Chloe: Well, this time, it's true. If jan ever comes out of this coma, claire and I will testify that she confessed to murder. Jan will be locked up for good.
Belle: I'm so sorry for everything that happened to you.
Chloe: Well, I'm okay now because of phillip, and you'll be okay too.
Philip: Now it's time to go home.
Belle: Oh, you let me know if you need anything.
Chloe: Thank you.
Philip: Anyway, I'm glad claire is safe.
Shawn: Thank you.
Philip: Belle, see you later.
Shawn: Let me get the door.
Shawn: No problem. So, my beautiful wife, are we finally ready to put jan spears behind us?
Paulina: So are you in the baking business as well?
Tripp: No, no. I'm actually a med student.
Paulina: Oh, a doctor. How wonderful. Now, chanel, this is the kind of man you should be dating. Substantial. Serious. Oh, excuse me.
Chanel: Oh, my god, hashtag mortified.
Paulina: [Laughs] Oh! Fancy meeting you here.
Abe: Yeah, well, this is a very lovely surprise. Oh, paulina price, I would like you to meet my very dear friend roman brady.
Roman: Nice to meet you. So you are the superstar I've been reading about in the paper.
Paulina: [Laughs] Guilty as charged.
Roman: Abe tells me you are charming and charismatic. I can see that already.
Paulina: Oh, well, that's very kind of you. And mr. Brady, you wouldn't happen to be the owner of this fine establishment?
Roman: As you said, guilty as charged.
Paulina: Oh, well, my daughter and I, we just got here for dinner, and we like it already. Great atmosphere.
Roman: Okay, I'll tell you what, let me get some of our famous chowder, on the house.
Paulina: I have a question for you.
Abe: Oh. Well, if this is about the landmarks commission--
Paulina: Ah, no. It's personal.
Paulina: Did you really tell your friend that I was charming and charismatic?
Abe: I did. Because you are.
Paulina: [Laughs] Well, I have a follow-up question.
Paulina: Would you join chanel and me for dinner?
Abe: Well, I thought you'd never ask.
Chanel: You were amazing, girlfriend, with my mom. She usually chews people up and spits them out.
Allie: Everything I said was true.
Chanel: Same here. I will be pretty bummed if she doesn't want me to hire you, but there's no way I'll let you go.
Tripp: Damn. Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Okay. Okay, sir. I'm on my way.
Allie: Let me guess. Dr. Snyder?
Tripp: Yes, I have to go back to the hospital.
Allie: I'm sorry.
Tripp: It's okay.
Allie: Hey, no. I got it. I'm gonna have a job soon, and i get the family discount, so go. Save some lives.
Tripp: Bye, chanel.
Chanel: Later. So? How's things going with the soon-to-be doctor?
Allie: They are going good. We're getting to know each other better, and he's very sweet and funny too.
Chanel: Hmm. I'm happy for you, horton.
Justin: Bonnie... that is not true. I feel damn lucky to have you in my life. You know that.
Bonnie: Except when you're around these two. Acting like I'm the worst thing that ever happened to you.
Kayla: Bonnie, we do not think that.
Steve: We don'T. And I am sorry. I'm sorry I upset you.
Bonnie: [Chuckles] I'm upset a lot. I'm used to it.
Justin: Well, you shouldn't be used to it. Tonight was supposed to be a fun evening. Where the two of you got to know bonnie better, you got to know them better. Well, speaking for myself, I have gotten to know steve better. Because I didn't think that you were capable of humiliating someone who was just trying to be friendly and kind, who just wants to be liked. But you've proved me wrong tonight, steve.
Steve: I wasn't trying to humiliate anyone. Okay? All I can say in my defense is that watching bonnie trying to be like my deceased sister is painful for me. Can you understand that?
Justin: Yes, I can. And as I said before, adrienne was my wife, so I also feel my share of pain even at the mention of her name. But bonnie wouldn't have to resort to channeling your sister if she thought that you would like her for just who she is.
Bonnie: That's exactly right. And now I realize I never should've even come tonight. And I know you wish this night would never have happened. And I know for a fact, steve johnson, that you didn't even wanna come here tonight. It's my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.
Kayla: Bonnie, I definitely wanted to be here. In fact, I was really looking forward to it.
Bonnie: But your husband sure wasn'T. I know that for a fact. See, I overheard justin on the phone just twisting your arm trying to get you not to cancel, again.
Steve: Well, I didn't cancel. We're here, aren't we?
Bonnie: But not in spirit, you're not. You're only here so you don't hurt justin's feelings.
[Scoffs] You know, when I suggested this double date thing so long ago, we said we'd do it the very next week, but you two, you two put it off for at least three months. And frankly, right now, I just wish we put it off forever.
Chanel: Yes, I'm genuinely happy for you. About tripp and about your new career path.
Allie: I'm excited too. But I can't help but worry that your mom really isn't okay with you hiring me.
Chanel: Didn't you hear her? She said she was fine with it.
Allie: Yeah, but only because you kind of put her on the spot. Do you think she's really okay with it?
Chanel: Honey, paulina price says exactly what she thinks.
Allie: Right, like "tripp is the kind of guy you should be dating. Substantial. Serious."
Chanel: That's what I mean. She does not hold back. I mean, "I come with opinions," she says it, and boy, does she ever. But I just can't help wondering...
Allie: Wondering what?
Chanel: How she'd react if she ever found out that we kissed.
Belle: [Sighs] I am so ready. I have been for decades.
Shawn: Well, then, let's do it. Let's call this the official end of any connection between us and jan spears.
Belle: Amen to that.
Shawn: And now? Now I wanna take you home and celebrate.
Belle: [Laughs] We do have a lot to be thankful for.
Shawn: We do. Claire's safe, chloe's on her way home, and you're in the clear.
Belle: Mm. And most importantly, we're together. Nothing and no one will ever tear us apart.
Shawn: No one and nothing. Ever. So now when we walk out that door, jan spears no longer exists, right?
Shawn: Let's do it.
