Days of Our Lives Update Friday 3/23/01  

By Jaime

Like father like daughter
At the Green Mountain Lodge bar, Glen and Barb argue over his telling his story. When Barb mentions Marlo, she asks if Abe and Lexie knew her. Lexie spins a lie, saying that Abe had an aunt named Marlo, that he didn't like. Lexie questions Glen further as he begins to tell his story. He says that he and Marlo "shacked up" for quite a while. If it really is her body that was found, the least he could do is buy her a tombstone or something. Barb insists he doesn't owe her anything, running her down (calling her a boozer and a tramp) as Glen defends her. Barb says that Marlo was jealous of her because she had more class than Marlo. Abe and Lexie can't believe what they are hearing and Lexie says that they must convince them to return home. They are beginning to panic, wondering if Glen could be Isaac's father. Lexie tells Abe that she has a plan and for him to follow her lead. He is shocked by what he is hearing and compares her to Stefano. She starts trying to talk them into going home, citing plenty of reasons. She says that if they go back there and identify the body, they will be responsible for her burial expenses and encourages them to go home. She sides with Barb, saying Glen should spend that money on HER instead. Glen then drops his bombshell and confirms their worst fears…that Marlo was pregnant.

Philip is cleared as Nancy freaks out
We get a replay of the last scene at the hospital, as Philip tries to get to Chloe and is caught. Belle rushes in to Chloe's defense as Chloe declares that Philip didn't rape her. The Doc tries to reason with her and tells her that Belle can stay with her if it would help her feel better. Chloe and Belle both agree. Outside, Craig and Nancy argue over his siding with Chloe. Nancy wants the truth and insists on the exam. She won't listen to Craig and insists that Chloe was raped. Craig asks how can she be sure, but she won't answer. He point blank asks her if she has been raped. She rushes off with him following her. She tells him to leave it alone. The Doc leaves Chloe to change as she insists to Belle that Philip didn't rape her. Belle convinces her that this may be the only way to clear Philip's name. Chloe finally reluctantly agrees. Later, they are in the exam room as Dr. Bader begins. Belle holds her hand and strokes the hair of a clearly nervous Chloe. After Dr. Bader finishes, she tells Chloe she will be back to talk to her in a bit. She informs Craig and Nancy (who insists on going in to see her). LOL…Craig tells Nancy not to expect a hug. Inside the room, Nancy thanks Belle for being there, but Chloe interrupts and tells her to shut up and that she will never forgive her for this. She rails Nancy out and tells Craig to keep her away from her and that she will always hate her. Nancy and Craig step outside as Chloe and Belle wonder what is taking so long. Alone, Chloe thanks Belle for being there for her and after they talk a bit, Belle peeks outside to see what is taking so long and sees Dr. Bader returning. She stops with Craig and Nancy and tells them that they have conclusive results. (Belle and Chloe walk up as well). She tells them that there is absolutely NO evidence of sexual activity (rape or otherwise). Philip walks up and Nancy takes off after him (Craig has to restrain her). Chloe calmly walks over to Nancy (and without saying a word) slaps the crap out of her. She then goes to Philip and they hug. She tells Philip to take her away from Nancy (who is standing there crying, saying she only wanted to protect her). Outside, Philip and Chloe hug and talk, with her saying she doesn't know what to do now.

Watch it burn
Over at the Kirakis Mansion, Lucas is passed out on the bed, dreaming of his visit with Will. Kate is asleep all tucked in her bed, with MORE than visions of sugar plums dancing in HER head. Victor and Nicole have sneaked into her room and he calls out her name. Nicole is in the floor shining a flashlight in his face. A sleepy Kate (half awake) opens her eyes to see Victor asking her why she killed him. She begins to freak out screaming "NO…NO…NO!" Blood starts to pour from his chest. Lucas (in his room) hears screams, but is too drunk to act on what he hears. In his stupor, he thinks it is Will crying and he starts having flashbacks of when Sami took him away. He starts crying about losing Will and falls to the bed and passes out. Victor continues to torture Kate (with Nicole giggling in the floor). Kate professes that she tried to stop the killers and didn't want Victor to die. He tells her that he will never stop tormenting her and will visit her nightly as she screams even louder. She snaps out of it and goes to pour her a drink of water, but smells something strange in the carafe. She assumes that she must have been drugged and gets up, stepping in the fake blood. She is confused and terrified and wonders what is going on. Downstairs, Victor and Nicole are in the den laughing their asses off and she suggests they leave before Kate comes down and catches them. But that is what Victor wants. He says that it is time for all this to end so he can get his life back. Kate does make her way down the stairs. From her view, everything is blurry and she is clearly dazed and confused. She gets downstairs and hears Victor and Nicole talking in the den. She collapses to the floor, thinking she is going mad. Nicole decides to leave (to go to the drug store. She says for supplies so she and Victor can get down and dirty. BLECH what a thought). After she leaves, Kate sneaks in to the den and sees Victor. She sneaks in behind him, picks up the fire poker and whacks him across the head as he crumples to the floor. She takes ashes from the fire place and scatters them around the room, setting the den on fire. She staggers into the hallway and is joined by Henderson. She tells him that she was in bed and smelled smoke. She begins to scream for Philip and Lucas. But Henderson tells her that Philip is out and so is Lucas and that his car isn't back either (remember, he loaned it to his driver…I KNEW there was a reason for this). Upstairs, Lucas wakes up and smells smoke and makes his way to the hall. In the den, Victor lies in the floor as the flames grow. Kate urges Henderson not to try and put out the fire, it's too dangerous. They go out the back way. Lucas stumbles down the stairs (literally) and is overcome with smoke (or is it because he is too drunk) and falls down the stairs and lands motionless at the bottom. In the den, Victor wakes up and tries to crawl out. Outside, Nicole returns to see the smoke. She tries to get in the front door, but is met with smoke and can't. Philip and Chloe also arrive to see the fire. Philip runs in a side door, yelling for his mom. Nicole runs around the house and also heads in a side door…just as Kate and Henderson come around the house from the back entrance. Henderson calls the fire department on the cell phone as Kate stands there freaking out…as the credits roll.
