Our Days in Salem Episode #6 – Monday, July 9, 2007
Steve and Kayla arrive at the prison, there to visit Benjy. Steve is quiet and Kayla asks if he’s okay. He says nothing to put her mind at ease. She wants him to promise her that he’ll keep his cool. “No promises, baby. This dude helped them play me like a harmonica. Is that cool with you?” Kayla shakes her head, but reminds him that if they keep an open mind, they can use their connection to Benjy to get some inside information. “Do you remember how guilty he seemed at that dinner?” Steve admits that she has a point and sees where she’s getting at, teasing her about them playing undercover cop. They kiss.
Officer Grierson, the on-duty guard, brings Benjy out in the usual costume. There is now a glass between the trio. Steve sits immediately, but Benjy looks away. Steve asks the officer to make him look at him, otherwise communicating won’t be happening. “You’re one lucky little dude, you know that?” Benjy blinks, trying not to cave to his fears. “How could you do what you’ve done? I want answers, dude, and you’re going to give them to be. You’re the only DiMera who will.”
Kayla cuts in. “Benjy,” Steve directs Benjy to Kayla, and he watches her. “Don’t be scared of Stefano. We’ll protect you,” Benjy signs that it’s too late for protection. Steve and Kayla exchange confused looks.
Roman comes into the station with Tony cuffed. He tells an officer to book him. Anna trails right behind Tony, trying to get her ex to listen to him. Roman tells her that he’s putting Tony behind bars, whether or not she likes it. Anna demands to know what cause he has. “Disturbing the peace,” Roman says, with a twinkle in his eye.
Tony is taken away, and Anna follows Roman into his office. “Anna, I really don’t know what your problem is. You said to everyone that Tony is different. We all see it. Yet, here you are, trying to defend him. He’s endangered my daughter’s life, Anna, and you could be in danger, too, but you just don’t care, do you?”
Anna grows quiet, and Roman wonders if he hit a nerve. “You still have feelings for him, don’t you?” Anna stays silent, but Roman can read her like a book. “You listen to me, and you listen to me real good. If your past relationship with the Count has helped him manipulate you in some way, you don’t have to be afraid. We’ve all been fooled by him over the past twenty years. Come on, Anna! I can see it in your eyes. Just tell me what you’ve done.”
Anna gets up. “If you’ll excuse me, I should call Tony an attorney,” She walks out and Roman sighs, wondering what Anna’s gotten herself into.
Sami is at the Brady Pub with Lucas, John, and Marlena. Will is in the kitchen with Shawn and Caroline. She has the results of the amnio in her hands, but she can’t bring herself to open it.
Hope arrives and sees the tension. She asks John if she could have a moment of his time. He excuses himself from the table, and asks what’s up? She tells him that she needs a favor. She tells him that the sooner the kids get out of this airline mess the better, and she wonders if Basic Black has any available positions. He tells her to talk to the new CEO – Adrienne.
Sami insists that they wait for EJ. She’d rather get everything on the table here and now than have to deal with all the pushing and pulling that this could cause. Lucas is there for her, as EJ comes into the Pub. Sami invites EJ to sit, as John and Hope return to the table. The tension is thick as the group sits together, waiting as Sami opens the envelope.
