FEBRUARY 5, 2008-EPISODE # 429: RELATIONS
Down in the restaurant, Tony and Anna keep looking at each other as they eat breakfast. Anna tells him she has a meeting with a prospective partner. Tony hopes everything goes well. She asks him what he has planned for his day. Tony says nothing....except for trying to get through to his daughter. Anna says she knows how hard that is and Tony begs to differ. Carrie wasn’t raised by Stefano. Anna has to give him that point.
Both of them then finish their meal and wish each other well as they walk out into the bright morning. Meanwhile, outside the DiMera penthouse........
Stefano sits in a park and watches the kids play. Lincoln walks up and sits down, asking if he is ok. Stefano says he’s fine. He just started thinking back to when Tony was a little boy. He says if he had only done right by him when he got older......but, Stefano says, that is in the past now. Lincoln says that maybe he should reach out to Tony. Stefano feels it is too late to make the wrongs right with his son.
He then turns to Lincoln and asks how Roman is doing in prison. Lincoln says his people are protecting him......per Stefano’s orders. Good, Stefano says. He didn’t realize something he did 24 years ago would rear it’s head in this day and age........but here it is. Stefano then asks if Marlena has made any headway with unlocking Roman’s memories and Lincoln says to the best of his knowledge, no.
Cassie then comes walking up, admitting she has heard their whole conversation. Stefano grows angry, wondering how she hid from them in a park. Cassie laughs, saying there are big trees there. Stefano has no choice but to laugh himself at her statement. He asks her to sit down and Lincoln stands and wonders what she has in mind.
Cassie wants to help with Lucas. Stefano says that Lucas Horton is none of her business. He has enough problems of his own. She says ok then......how about helping with Roman Brady. Stefano gets upset, saying that this is a personal venture for him. Too much is at stake to leave this in the hands of a child. Cassie says she’s no child.....and wants the chance she was promised to prove it. Stefano says he will give it some thought. Cassie starts to say something and Stefano stops her, saying.....
Stefano: Never overplay your hand, my darling.
Cassie obeys and kisses him on the cheek before she runs off. Lincoln asks Stefano if he will involve her and he says he just may. It’s time for her to prove how much of a DiMera she really is.
Cassie then gets a phone call from Tony, asking to meet her. He says that he would like to sit down and talk about things.......and clear the air. She thinks about her conversation with her grandfather and agrees to meet with Tony. Back on the park bench, Lincoln asks if Stefano is using Cassie. He says yes......unfortunately.
ILLINOIS STATE PENITENTIARY
Roman hopes that Marlena returns to treat him as she promised and is happy when he sees her smiling face through the window. When she walks in, all he can say is how sorry he is for what happened and she tells him not to worry about it. She knows he wasn’t in his right mind.
She then says it’s time to start again. Roman lays down and, after being put under, Marlena asks him what he sees. He sees a doctor telling someone to put him under and, as the person tries to do this, Roman starts to fight back. He is now saying “No......” over and over again and Marlena is powerless to find out what is going on.
As Roman fights this person in his dream, he starts yelling out and the guard tries to get in the door. Marlena jumps up, terrified at Roman’s behavior, and she backs up to the wall. The scene freeze frames on Roman's face.......
And slowly fades to black.
