    Chaos erupts as it is revealed that Kate Roberts is alive and well! Billie’s face pales, and she screams in horror! Kate’s eyes shift from Vivian to Billie, and she kicks Valentine and Vivian out of her way as she walks off of the stage.

    Kate

    Move! I need to see my daughter!

    Billie

    This has gotta be a trick…a dream…a nightmare…no…I saw YOUR BODY! I buried you!

    Kate

    Billie, it is me. Your mother. That bastard Tony DiMera tried to kill me, but I’m alive and well. I survived! I hope all of you hear that, KATE ROBERTS SURVIVED! I was saved by a few individuals, who I probably shouldn’t tell you about, just in time. I don’t know what was put in my casket.

    Billie, shaking

    This can’t be…its impossible!!!

    Billie then, from exhaustion and shock, faints but is caught by Forrest in time.

    Forrest

    This is a trick! Something my aunt concocted to frighten us all!

    Kate, laughing and motioning to Vivian

    Does that look like the face of a woman who could be behind this?! And NO ONE can duplicate me. I’m the one and the only Kate. And since I am, I hope all of you are ready to let the true games begin! Because now that I am back, I WILL be getting back into the fashion business, and I won’t be kind.

    Episode: 258, Kate’s Back!
    Written by: Tara Smith



    Downtown Salem



    At the fashion show, so many are still in shock over Kate being alive. Victor gets up from being at Celeste’s side and stomps over to Kate.

    Victor

    This is absurd! Tony’s alternate personality shot you and you were declared dead at the DiMera Palace in Italy.

    Kate

    Oh please, Victor, this is Salem. Very few people have ever actually died.

    Victor

    I can’t believe this. How could you even have survived a gun wound long enough to be secretly taken and saved?

    Kate

    Well, I believe it was shortly after I was carted off, but of course how can you expect me to remember?

    Victor

    I want a DNA test! I have to know you are Kate!

    Kate

    I already have one for you-

    Sirens are heard, and suddenly many paramedics and police officers rush in from all of the 911 calls when Vivian and Valentine were fighting. Some people even begin to get evacuated from the building, and Valentine snaps out of all that’s happened to finally speak.

    Valentine, pointing to Vivian

    Oh, officers! She’s right here! The woman who did all of those criminal acts around Salem and attacked me just now!

    Forrest and Nicholas both give a confirming nod at the officers, and they rush and pull Vivian up. Vivian stares at Kate, trying to recover from the shock.

    Vivian

    You….if its really you…you’ll regret this…

    Kate

    What the hell did I do?

    Vivian

    You organized this whole thing…you must have…oh, ALL of you will pay! That includes you, Valentine! And you too, Celeste! And Peter as well! You haven’t seen the last of me!

    Vivian is dragged out of the stage room, and Valentine and Celeste are taken to get checked out by the paramedics.



    Bo and Hope’s House



    Bo leans on the wall, watching Hope closely while she holds and plays with Pamela and Addie. He walks over and sits down with her.

    Bo

    So, how you doing?

    Hope

    I’m glad to be back home, I guess, and with my daughters…even though I know that won’t last for long.

    Bo, sighing

    Yeah, I know…

    Hope looks at Bo, and slowly rests her head on his chest, while his fingers run through her hair. A few tears come out of his eyes, and she breaks out in tears, both of them knowing what is coming.



    Downtown Salem



    Outside of the fashion show, Valentine and Celeste are both on stretchers, getting checked out. Celeste slowly awakens, and looks around.

    Celeste

    Dahling, what is going on?

    Valentine

    Well, that ravagous sister of mine mauled me! But not to worry, she’s finally been arrested, and put right where she belongs. Oh, and Kate Roberts is alive.

    Celeste

    My cards told me of this. I should be shocked, but I’m really not and do not care. However, I am glad that Vivian Alamain is finally gone. She was too much of a problem to me.

    Valentine

    Well, not anymore! Ding Dong the witch is gone.

    Paramedic, interrupting

    Well, Miss Heart, I think any injuries you sustained were minor. You are free to go.

    Valentine

    Oh, why thank you ever so much!!!

    Valentine stands and then looks at Celeste.

    Valentine

    It was very enjoyable working with you, Celeste Perrault. I’ll call you again if I need anything. Ta Ta!

    Valentine walks away as Celeste rolls her eyes at Valentine simply kicking her to the curb, but does not care now that Vivian is in jail.



    Inside, Elvis walks up to Peter, who is looking around the empty stage.

    Peter

    What are you doing here???

    Elvis

    Nothing you need to know about. Now come on, lets get out of here before anything else happens. We’ve got bigger things to take care of. I don’t think Father needs us worrying about the Alamains or Kiriakis’s so much.

    Peter

    I’m with you there. I have gotten so sick of all of them.

    Elvis

    Now that this sham is over with, we should be done with them. Lets go.

    Peter nods in agreement and both then leave, heading back to the DiMera Mansion.



    Back outside, Forrest walks up to Kate.

    Forrest

    Okay, how much did Vivian pay you? Because I can double it for you to confess.

    Kate

    For the last time, I am the actual Kate Roberts! Here, look at these DNA results, privately conducted by Salem University Hospital!

    Kate pulls out the results of a DNA test, and gives it to Forrest for him to look over.

    Forrest

    Fine, but I’m going to have these checked to see how legitimate they are.

    Kate

    As you wish, but don’t use up too much money. I’ve been watching the business world for quite some time now, and I know you are about to be taken over by Victor. That’s why I’ve returned to reclaim my position in Alamain.

    Forrest

    Billie has filled that position now.

    Kate

    Fine, then I’ll take the place of Valentine Heart. You can kick her out and re-hire me.

    Forrest

    Excuse me? I just hired Valentine a week or two ago.

    Kate

    Forrest, I have been watching everything happen during this show, and Valentine has not demonstrated any potential to be an efficient executive. You kicked out one of your aunt’s, you can easily do the same to another. And I’d recommend it. You need someone to help you fight Titan, and I used to be married to Victor, and unlike Vivian I am sane. I know how Victor thinks. You and I worked together last year, we can work together again.

    Forrest

    Fine, I’ll see what I can do…once I find out if you are really Kate or not. Then we’ll see.

    Kate, as Forrest walks away

    I guess we will.

    Kate then walks over to where Billie is lying, still unconscious, and looks down at her daughter…



    Bo and Hope’s House



    Bo and Hope sit for a long time, simply holding each other, and Bo is in deep thought, going back and forth on what to do, and what he should and needs to do. Slowly, Hope sits up, and looks at him.

    Bo

    Fancy Face, I…

    Hope

    Yes, what is it?

    Bo

    I think…its time.

    Hope is, like Bo was a moment ago, very silent as a few more tears came out, before taking a deep breath.

    Hope
    I…guess you’re right. I’m not going to run this time, I’m going to face the consequences.
    Bo
    Good…and I’m proud of you for that, Hope. As much pain as I am in right now, I am.
    Bo then stands, and begins to sob himself although he tries to keep it hidden from Hope’s view, and grabs handcuffs off of the table, and turns to Hope.
    Bo
    Hope Brady, you are under arrest…

    LAUREN KOSLOW RETURNS TO LIS AS KATE!!!!!! STEVIE BROCK JOINS AOTH AS WILL!!!!!

    As revealed in the latest episode of LIS, Kate Roberts, last seen when killed by Tony DiMera/Vince in October 2007, is alive and well! Lauren Koslow returns to the role, one that she played from LIS's premiere, and is back on contract status! "ML and I planned it almost immediately when he came on, and we always had a set time period for when she'd return, and she's finally back. This will cause things to heat up even more wih this business war that has been going on the past couple of months, and Vivian's not going to be happy about this one bit! And this time, Kate's back and here to stay." Co-EP/HW Tara Smith promises

    Also, on AOTH, Will Roberts has suddenly returned, and his actor has finally been revealed: Stevie Brock! "I give ML credit for this, he thought of it, arranged it, casted Will, and there is a huge and great story in store for the teenager. Just like with Samantha Evans coming back from the dead, three crossovers within the two years LIS has been running, Shawn Douglas Brady being blown up in a car, and Hope killing Gina and smoking *crack*, this will be something that breaks some boundaries, and Days nor any of the other blogs out there have done this! So be sure to stay tuned!" Tara Smith advises

    Both actors are already airing on their shows, and are on contract.

    At the fashion show, Vivian has Valentine pinned to the ground, and is literally ripping her apart! Valentine screams for help, and Celeste tries to stop Vivian, however Vivian angrily stands and elbows Celeste in the stomach and pushes her off the stage! Celeste lies on the ground, hurt, and Victor rushes to her side.

    Victor

    Oh, Celeste! Are you alright?!

    Celeste does not respond, while Valentine kicks Vivian away, and tries to stand up to run, but Vivian grabs her by the hair and swings her around, tossing her towards the wall! The guests gasp and scream in shock as many begin to dial 911, and Vivian grabs Valentine by the neck after Valentine hit’s the wall, and starts to choke her!

    Vivian, as Valentine is gasping for air

    You’ve destroyed me, so I’ll kill you!

    Episode: 257, Vivian vs. Valentine
    Written by: Tara Smith



    Downtown Salem



    Back in the Mysterious Person and Elvis’s office above the stage and at the top of the building, they continue to watch all the havoc in the stage room.

    Elvis

    Wow, I didn’t think you’d be able to cause this much hell to break loose in one day. I’m almost impressed.

    Mysterious Person, laughing

    Didn’t think anyone could match up to your big powerful family, did you? Well, I told you this would be a day to remember, and from Nicole being shot to Vivian going absolutely nuts, it certainly is.

    Elvis

    Yeah, I just wonder what Father will think about all this…



    At the stage, Vivian continues to strangle Valentine while screaming at her.

    Vivian

    You just love screwing up my life, don’t you?! Helping that bastard nephew of mine get me out of Alamain, constantly taunting me, and now this! Well I’m going to make sure that this is the last time you will ever mess with me…you should never have come back to Salem!

    Others rush over to try to pull Vivian away from Valentine, including Nicholas, but Vivian herself shoves them away. Nicholas keeps at it and finally gets a good grip on her, and Vivian releases Valentine, as Valentine gasps for air.

    Valentine

    You…you…it will be the last time I mess with…you…because I’m going to make sure…that this is…your last stand!

    Valentine darts towards Vivian and Nicholas, and SHOVES Vivian down hard, the force so powerful that it even knocks her out of Nicholas’s grasp! Valentine pins Vivian to the ground, much like what Vivian did to her minutes ago, but Vivian throws Valentine right off of her, and she stands and slugs Valentine right across the face! Valentine grabs ahold of Vivian’s arm and digs her nails right into it, scratching Vivian badly, and the fight just continues.



    Salem University Hospital



    Maggie is sitting at Abe’s bedside, after leaving Bo and Hope’s house to give them some time together, and Abe has only been conscious several times In the past few days, however right now he is awake and Maggie is clutching his hand tightly.

    Abe, talking slowly

    Thank…you, so much…for taking care of me.

    Maggie

    What do you expect me to do? You’ve been a great friend the past several months, and it’s the least I can do, and I want you to get through this, I really do. I mean, Mike is already on getting you the best treatment anyone could have.

    Abe

    You…don’t have to do all this.

    Maggie

    You’re right, I don’t, but I want to. I wasn’t able to cure my husband’s heart disease in time of his death, I won’t let one of my best friends die.

    Abe

    I…think you are too kind, Maggie.

    Maggie

    Nonsense. You deserve this, and so much more.

    Abe

    So, do they know when I should leave the hospital? I need to get back to my job.

    Maggie

    Mike’s not sure yet, he’s still running a lot of tests. But don’t worry, everything’s going to be fine, and so is the PD, because I don’t think you will be able to go back for some time, while you are healing.

    Abe

    The town needs me.

    Maggie

    They will do fine without you. Listen, please excuse me, I’ll be right back.

    Abe nods slowly as he closes his eyes, and she leaves the room, and once outside she closes her eyes in dissappointment, knowing that Abe is depressed because he lost custody of Theo.

    Maggie

    I just need…something to cheer him up…I can’t let him get too depressed.



    Downtown Salem



    Inside the Mysterious Person and Elvis’s office, they continue to watch the huge and intense catfight, shocked at how much Vivian and Valentine are tearing into each other.

    Mysterious Person

    Well, I think its time I got out there…not much else that I was waiting for anyway, and my surprise will be ruined if one of them kill the other.

    Elvis, taking a deep breath

    Alright, do your thing, I guess. I’ll wait here and watch, because I don’t think there’s anything I can do at this point.

    Mysterious Person

    If you insist…well, Salem, its finally time for my dazzling return!

    The Mysterious Person stands and walks out of the room, while Elvis rubs his temples.

    Elvis

    Oh, if all of you out there thought that what Vivian did would shatter everything…wait till you see this.



    On the stage, Vivian and Valentine enter into an intense struggle, each of them having a strong grip of their arms, and Forrest and Nicholas continue to try to pull them apart, but it does no good. As they practically twirl around the room, they eventually trip and fall right down onto the end of the stage!!! Then, out of the blue, the Announcer’s voice is heard.

    Announcer

    And now, the final model of the evening…the thought-late, great….KATE ROBERTS!

    EVERYONE in the room, including Valentine and Vivian, suddenly look up at hearing the words “Kate Roberts”, who was thought to have died in Italy many months ago. Kate herself, in a huge fancy dress, comes strolling down the runway!!

    Kate, stopping at Valentine and Vivian

    Sorry, ladies, but…I’m back, and better than ever.

    Kate grins as she stares at Vivian’s completely horrified face…

    Spears Mansion

    Jan raises an eyebrow at seeing Will on her back patio, and does not know he is Lucas’s son.
    Jan
    Who the hell are you and how’d you get into my house?
    Will, looking at Lucas
    You didn’t tell her about me, Dad? I’m Will Roberts, Lucas’s son.
    Jan
    Ohh, wait, I’ve seen you in pictures before…don’t think I’ve ever actually met you.
    Lucas
    Will…no…its impossible. Where the HELL have you been?!
    Will
    Is that really any of your business? You obviously never bothered to look for me.
    Jan
    Lucas, what are you talking about?!
    Lucas
    Back before you and I got close, after my mom’s death and right as EJ Wells died, Will went to Colorado to stay with his great grandparents for awhile in Colorado, and he was supposed to attend school there. But then he decided to run away, and I’ve had to send out investigators for months to look for him.
    Will
    Yeah, well, I decided to come back to finally face my parents…but I see that you’re too busy kissing your new psycho girlfriend.
    Jan
    Excuse me? Lucas, why did you never tell me?!
    Lucas
    You were pregnant, and then when you gave birth, I was going to tell you but wanted you to be happy with Bentley. And besides, its not your issue, its mine. And now that my son is home, I’m not going to let him disrespect you like this, and I need to deal with it.
    Jan
    Of course. We finally get engaged, and JUST like with Shawn, something bad happens. Yeah, I see where this is going.
    Jan then storms into the house, and Lucas for a minute wants to go after her, but then turns to look at Will, ready to handle his son.

    Written by Tara Smith

    Salem University Hospital

    Nicole, although not quite ready to speak yet, looks on in shock at Greta Von Amberg standing above her. She remembers how she got Jan to get her out of town on Christmas Eve of 07, and never expected her to return.
    Greta
    Ohh, so I’m enough to wake you up from your coma? Wonderful! Because Nicole, I may have been willing to put up with you last time, but not this time. You’ve bullied me long enough. Oh, and you are a DiMera now? I seriously doubt that.
    Nicole, trying to speak
    G-rrrr…ettaa…this….
    Nicole’s vitals begin to go up, and Greta tries to shush her with her finger .
    Greta
    No, don’t speak. I don’t think people should know that I’m back just yet. Soon, they will, but not now. And as much as I hate to say this, I don’t want you to die just yet.
    Nicole’s vitals calm down, as she tries to breathe, and even shakes at looking up at Greta.

    Chez Rouge

    Anna and Tony walk in to the restaurant, and choose a table to sit down at. After they order their drinks and food, Anna begins to speak.
    Anna
    You know, Tony, I really never thought you’d speak to me again after what happened at Stefano’s funeral.
    Tony
    At the time, I can’t say I didn’t think that, either. However, I am not so angry anymore, and things are better now. I am growing close to my daughter, and even Marlena. Its wonderful, despite Kristen and Peter still hating me…and there is some other news, too.
    Anna
    And what is that?
    Tony
    Stefano’s alive.
    Anna, gasping
    Are you kidding me?! He was in a coma, and the hospital said he died…he was supposed to be under their watch! How did he cheat death this time?
    Tony
    I don’t think its something you want to know, Anna.
    Anna
    Of course I want to know, Tony. This man is a danger to us all.
    Tony
    Elvis Banks DiMera, my younger step-brother, and…Renee…kidnapped him. Yes, Anna, she’s alive.
    Anna
    Renee…as in…the Renee? The Renee who killed my baby? Our child? The Renee who went after us, specifically me, for months? I thought Andre killed her!
    Tony
    So did I, but…she’s alive. Just stay away from her, my dear, please. She’s nothing for either of us to worry about.
    Anna
    Well, you two aren’t…you know…
    Tony
    Together? Anna, oh please! Right now, my top concern is my daughter.
    Anna, thinking to herself
    If she even is your daughter…

    Spears Mansion

    Lucas
    Now, Will, who do you think you are, believing you can just run away like that?
    Will
    Why do you care?! You and Mom didn’t even care. I called both of you when I got back here, but no one answered! I had to go to Aunt Julie, who’s in jail, to find out where you might be!
    Lucas
    We’ve been busy. Your mother has been trying to get over the death of EJ, and she’s also had a family crisis with Nicole Walker. I have been trying to help Jan, a mother and fragile woman, take care of her new baby.
    Will
    So you’ve got a new kid now? And you forgot about me for Jan FREAKING SPEARS?! She’s a psycho! She locked Shawn in a cage!
    Lucas
    No, Bentley is Shawn’s son. And I know she’s done some bad things in the bast, some that are unforgivable. But I’ve been helping her through it, and she’s really a better person now. Lets get back to you, and what you’ve been doing this year.
    Will
    I said its none of your business! Get off my back!
    Lucas
    No, I won’t. I need to know where you’ve been and what you’ve been doing. NOW.
    Will
    You don’t. Because, after this short time I’ve been back, I already know that you’re not my father anymore.

    Downtown Salem

    Forrest, Billie, Nicholas, Victor, Vivian, Belle, Peter, and Elvis are stop what they are doing as they hear a familiar woman’s voice over the loud peaker system.
    “Everyone, yes may I have your attetion. We interrupt your programming for an exclusive expose on one of Salem’s oldest and dumbest hags.” Val looks at Celetse and nods her head, giving the signal to press play on the tape recorder, which Celeste does.
    The tape contains a confession from Vivian Alamin to Ivan about all her crimes. Everyone hears:

    Ivan asks Vivian how she did all of what she did. Vivian explains to Ivan that it all started when she arrived in town back in June, she says she had been watching everyone, and she wanted Victor back and revenge on Kate. She then tells Ivan she thought that if she made Victor’s family happy, he would be happy and fall back in love with her. She then tells him that is why she interfered in the lives of Bo, Hope, Billie, Patrick, Shawn, and others. She also says she went after Kate’s family to get revenge on Kate. She says she woke Jan up from her coma because she knew Shawn would never be happy with Mimi, Chelsea was Kate’s grandaughter so that is why she stabbed her, and she poisoned Caroline because Caroline secretly still loved Victor, and finally attacked Kate at John and Marlena's wedding.

    Vivian is stunned beyond words.
    “You dirty Bitch. You Show your face now Valentine!” Celeste and Valentine walk out in the crowd with smirks on their faces.
    Victor
    “I can’t beleive what I am hearing.” He looks at Celeste
    “I know Vivian is not your favorite person but that gives you no right to get revenge on her through me. I had a lot riding on this fahion and you and your 2nd rate lounge act pal here just turned this into a cheap circus.”
    Celeste gulps, and looks away slightly disappointed in herself for hurting Victor this way as she really never thought of Victor in this expose.
    Vivian
    “I can’t belive my own sister did this to me.”
    Victor
    “And I can’t belive you did all these things. You are sick woman. Your pathetic and just a waste of space. You need help. You’re a luntic Vivian Alamain. From stealing Kate’s egg to causing my family mayhem all to be with me. Security, get her out of here. Better yet, call up Bo Brady so she can be arrested.”

    Episode 256: Exposed!
    Written by ML Cooks & Tara Smith

    Downtown Salem

    In the stage room, chaos erupts as Vivian has been exposed for all her crimes. Valentine stands up on the stage itself, and looks out on the crowd.
    Valentine
    Everyone, I really am sorry for what my sister has done! However, she is really a malicious, spineless woman! She stole Kate Robert’s eggs many years ago so she could carry Kate’s baby with Victor! She buried poor Carly Manning alive! And now, she has done all of this!
    Billie, pushing her way through the crowd and looking at Vivian
    You….you were the one who STABBED MY DAUGHTER?!?!!? That person I searched months for…it was you?! Because of you, my relationship her will never be the same again! All because of you!!!
    Forrest, running up to Billie
    Please, Billie, calm down. What my aunt did was wrong but-
    Billie
    Stay out of this, Forrest! Its between Vivian and me now!
    Vivian
    Oh please, Billie, that was a long time ago…and it was for Bo’s sake! Your daughter was nothing to brag about anyway!
    Billie punches Vivian in the face, and Vivian falls to the ground as Valentine laughs. Billie grabs ahold of Vivian by the collar.
    Billie
    I am so sick of you tormenting my family! You’ve gone way too far this time!
    Billie punches Vivian again, and pulls on her hair while Forrest struggles to try to pull her back!

    Elvis and the Mysterious Person watch in their private office, and the Mysterious Person drops their glass.
    Mysterious Person
    I…can’t believe this. This is such a shock and devastation, but at the same time, I love it…Vivian Alamain is finally going to fall! Kill her, Billie!
    Elvis
    You’re really going to just sit by and watch? I may be cold but your whole plan is going to be ruined if you don’t stop it somehow.
    Mysterious Person
    Actually, this makes it even better for when I get out there and reveal myself to them all. Poor Vivian won’t know what hit her.

    DiMera Mansion

    Megan walks into the DiMera Mansion, where her father is pacing in the living room.
    Megan
    Father, is something wrong?
    Stefano, looking up
    Oh, no, Golden Girl. I just am still taking in all of what has happened to this town in my absence, however it should be easy to re-take it now that it is in complete shambles.
    Megan
    Very true, however, I have other bad news: Hope Brady is back. Father, I want her gone! I want her dead! Chopped into pieces! I don’t care how it happens but she must die, and I need your help.
    Stefano
    No no, Megan, Hope has destroyed herself, and I would not dare let you make another attempt on her life after what happened in 1985.
    Megan, taking a knife out and fiddling with it
    That was a long time ago, I’m smarter and more experienced now.
    Stefano
    Perhaps, but still, I will not lose you again. Now, I have heard about how Hope murdered Princess Gina Von Amberg, also known as Britta Englund, back in Italy when I was feuding with Helena Cassadine.
    Megan
    Yes, yes, and she’s been on a downward spiral ever since, especially after she told Bo.
    Stefano
    Hope will go to jail for what she’s done, possibly even executed. There is nothing to worry about, daughter!
    Megan
    As much as I love Bo, he’s head over heels for Hope, and one of the most respected police officers in this town. He’ll get her out of it somehow.
    Stefano
    Ahh, but who’s to say he even forgives Hope for what she’s pulled? And remember, he’s a Brady, we are DiMeras! We have more power over this town, and I will make sure that Hope is sentenced to a long long time in jail.
    Megan
    Excellent…Saint Hope will finally be in the slammer, and Bo will be mine for the taking…along with this entire town!
    Stefano
    Exactly. Our reign has come.
    Unknown to both of them, Kristen is watching and listening from the staircase…

    Downtown Salem

    Forrest rips Billie off of Vivian, and holds her back as Vivian angrily stands up, and both of them breathe heavily.
    Forrest
    Billie, just calm down! You are only going to make it worse by attacking her!
    Billie
    Oh please! Somebody call Bo, he’ll want to know who stabbed his daughter! He’ll take her to the station! Just GET RID OF HER!!!!
    Vivian
    You can never get rid of me! I don’t care how many times I am exposed, no one can stop me!
    Valentine
    Sorry, dear sister! I’m afraid, there’s more horrible dirt that I got an…exclusive source to spill! You know who you are, and you may come out now! Tell us all what you know about Vivian Alamain!
    Peter, in disgust, walks out of the shadows, and all of the guests in the room turn to see him!
    Victor
    Peter Blake? What the hell does he have to do with Vivian?
    Celeste, looking at Valentine
    This wasn’t part of our plan! Valentine, we must stop this madness, we’ve done enough!
    Valentine, ignoring Celeste
    You’d be surprised! Now Peter, tell everyone what you have on my wonderful sister.
    Vivian, rushing up to Peter
    No…no…you can’t do this…whatever Valentine’s paying you, I’ll double it. But don’t make this worse.
    Peter
    You think I want to? I’m sorry, but I have to…
    Vivian, as Peter tries to speak she grabs his arm
    NO! You’ll regret this, I promise!
    Peter
    When there was a storm a few months ago, Vivian and I were trapped together in one of the bedrooms at my mansion…and while we were trapped…we had a one night stand.
    Many gasps are heard in the room, even from Celeste. Vivian’s eyes widen, and her nails go into Peter’s chin, giving him huge scratches as she manages to throw him back, furious.
    Vivian
    You little…oh I’ll deal with you later!
    Vivian turns to Valentine on the stage, and screams out as she tackles her younger sister, and begins to rip her apart, literally!

    Salem University Hospital
    Marlena, Tony, and Anna all look at Mike waiting to hear news on Nicole.
    Tony
    “Well speak up Mike. Don’t keep us in suspense any longer.”
    Mike
    “Nicole is in a coma. She took a bullet to the back.”
    Marlena
    “Oh dear. Mike, will she wake up?”
    Mike
    “Very likely.”
    Tony
    “She took the bullet to the back, where at exactly?”
    Mike
    “A few millimeters from her lower spine.”
    Marlena gasps as Tony continues
    “Is she paralyzed Mike?”
    Off in the distance and around the corner, a woman, wearing oversized sunglasses and a pink scarf spies upon Marlena, Tony, Anna, and Mike talking about Nicole.

    Episode 2: We Meet Again
    Written by ML Cooks and Tara Smith

    Midtown Salem, The Salem Inn
    Stami walks in his room and immediately pull his Sami wig off.
    “Oh, Did I have a fun adventure.”
    Sami tries to speak but can’t since she gagged and bound.
    Stami
    “What was that? Speak up please” He laughs. He then turns on the TV so Sami can watch the news report on Nicole being shot at the Titian fashion show
    “DO you hear that Sami dear? Some one shot your dear old sister. I wonder who it could have been.” he says pulling out a gun from a holster. He waves it in Sami’s face. Sami begins to panic, wondering what this deranged maniac is going to do
    “You look worried. If only all the people you ever plotted against could see this moment now. Sami Brady, at my mercy.” Sami tries to struggle out of the ropes that has her tied to the bed.
    Stami continues his taunting
    “It’s no use.” He says taking the gun and grabbing one of Sami’s hands. He puts the gun in Sami’s hand so her finger prints can be on the gun. “You just shot your own sister. What until the world finds out Sami Brady shot Nicole.” He begins to laugh. “By the way, I’m just getting started.”

    The Spears mansion, the back patio
    Lucas is on bended knee with a ring box with a 14 qt diamond sitting inside.
    “Jan Britney Spears, will you marry me?”
    Jan
    “Are you serious?”
    Lucas
    “Yes I am? You don’t think I am?”
    Jan
    “I am just so overwhelmed. I can’t believe this is happening”
    Lucas, frowning his fore head up
    “Is something wrong? Is this a bad thing?”
    Jan
    “No of course not. Oh I am sorry. YES!! Yes I’ll marry you.” Lucas smiles, takes the ring out the box and slides it on Jan’s finger. He stands up, grabs her and swings her around as they kiss
    Jan, laughing
    “Stop, you’re making me dizzy.”
    Lucas
    “You’ve made me the happiest man on the earth.” He says kissing her.
    “I wish I could say the same thing.” They hear from behind. They turn around and are shocked to see Lucas’s son Will.

    Back at the Hospital
    Mike
    “It’s to early to tell if she’ll have movement or not in her legs. “
    Marlena
    “Oh dear God. Can I please see her.”
    Mike
    “I am really sorry, not tonight. I want to run some test. I don’t think she’s strong enough for visitors. Try again in the morning. I’ll keep you posted if anything changes.” He says before walking back inside of Nicole’s room.
    Anna
    “Why don’t we go grab something to eat. My treat.”
    Marlena
    “I’ll see you in hell first.” She says walking away. Anna and Tony look at each other.
    Tony
    “She’s going through a hard time.”
    Anna
    “Please Tony, don’t make excuses for her. Why don’t you go run off and be with her. I know that’s what you want.”
    Tony
    “Actually I want to talk with you.”
    Anna, arching an eye brow
    “Oh,, is that so?”
    Tony
    “Yes, Let’s say I treat….. Hungry?”
    Anna
    “I am” They leave the hospital while the mystery woman continues to keep her eye on Nicole’s room. Mike walks out of the room and the mystery woman takes this chance to slip into Nicole’s room unnoticed.

    Titan Parking Lot
    Alexis is just leaving the Titan building with Jeremy, off to another dinner date, and Jeremy gives her a small kiss on the cheek as they get into the car.
    Alexis
    So, where we eating tonight?
    Jeremy
    I was thinking the Penthouse Grille.
    Alexis
    Very nice. I’m glad we don’t have to eat at your Aunt’s restaurant for free every date. You know, that reminds me, I meant to ask you something.
    Jeremy
    Yeah?
    Alexis
    You know, we haven’t known each other for long, but it seems like you’ve never even talked about your family, other than mentioning your aunt a few times at Chez Rouge. So, whats your family like?
    Jeremy, pausing for a moment
    I don’t think you want to know about my family life.
    Alexis
    Awww, of course I do. I’ve heard so much about the famous Hortons.
    Jeremy
    Then why are you asking me about them?
    Alexis
    Because I want an insider’s view on it.
    Jeremy
    I barely even know any of them, except my Aunt Maggie and Aunt Julie who I’ve only lived with for a Aunt Julie who I’ve only lived with for a little over a year.
    Alexis
    Hey, don’t get so snappy about it. What about your parents?
    Jeremy
    My mother raised me in Egypt, and that’s where she still is. My father’s a complete jackass. There, is that enough for you?
    Alexis, stunned at Jeremy’s words
    Well, excuse me, then.
    The car ride continues in silence on the way to dinner, as Alexis simply stares out the window after Jeremy snapped at her, and Jeremy continues to drive…


    Back at the Hospital
    The mystery woman takes a seat next to Nicole and looks at her comatose body.
    “The tables have turned Nicole. I told you I would be back one day. And here I am. To do unto you what you did to me.”
    Nicole begins to wake up as the sound of the woman registers in her brain. Once her vision clears up she is stunned to Greta Von Amberg.

    Bo and Hope’s House

    Hope looks at Bo, seeing her husband for the first time in over a month. Bo is astonished, almost not believing what he’s seeing. He slowly walks towards her, and she stands perfectly still.
    Bo
    Hope…is it…really you?
    Hope
    Yes…Bo, its me…the real me.
    Bo
    I was beginning to think that you were gone for…good.
    Hope
    At one point, I…thought that to, and intended on it. But speaking to someone made me realize that…I needed to come back. I’ve been preparing myself for this moment: I’m turning myself in.
    Bo
    We’re not going down there yet…I don’t know if I even can right now, we need to talk first, and I mean really talk.
    Hope
    I know, I know. Listen, Brady: I’m sorry. I’m sorry for running off like I did, I’m sorry I kept the secret from you, I’m sorry at how much I had outbursts.
    Bo
    This time, I don’t think an apology can cut it, Fancy Face. I mean, I just want my wife back…I haven’t seen my wife in a long long time. And you killed a woman, you hid it, you became an alcoholic.
    Hope
    I stopped smoking all that crack, I got rid of the pipe and all that I had left on my way back to Salem, as hard as it was at first. I’m trying to stop drinking, which is harder but I’m trying. And I am still getting over Shawn’s death, because right after I got over Zack’s death then he died and…our lives have been horrible.
    Bo
    Are you?? Are you really trying to stop? Or is this just another lie? And believe me, I’m still trying to get over the fact that our boys are gone, and I haven’t been myself since then either. But you…you’ve turned into a whole other person.
    Hope
    I realized that in my time on the run. And I came back so I could become the real me again…and face the consequences. I know you’re going to have to arrest me, so lets get it over with now, so its not any harder on the both of us than it already is.

    Episode: 255, Alamain Conflict
    Written by Tara Smith

    Downtown Salem

    At the fashion show, Elvis and the Mysterious Person are still inside the figure’s office.
    Elvis
    I can’t believe you didn’t call this whole thing off when Nicole was shot.
    Mysterious Person
    Elvis, you must be going soft. Nicole is nothing to call my grand show off for.
    Elvis
    I guess, you may be right. It just seems odd…but then again this is your supposed master plan.
    Mysterious Person
    Just watch and learn. The best is yet to come. I have something huge in store for this town. All of these businesses will be rocked to their core.

    Across the building, Forrest pulls all of the Alamains and Billie into a private room, and shuts the door and locks it.
    Forrest
    That’s it. I’m calling an emergency meeting right here, right now.
    Valentine
    What is it, Forrest?? I have bigger things to take care of!
    Forrest
    No, no you don’t. I said this before, and I’ll say it again: its time to get serious, Valentine. And you too, Nicholas. If we want to save our company, and our entire fortune and name, we are going to have to stop horsing around and get to it. We’re making it way too easy for Victor to snatch Alamain away from us.
    Nicholas
    And look who’s talking! You were out their sucking on Billie’s neck only a couple of hours ago!
    Forrest
    But I was able to get ahold of myself. You and Valentine both have sexually come on to people who we are against, and especially you, Nicholas. You’re not doing us any good at all by trying to have sex with her! But then again, I shouldn’t expect anything less. I’ve heard about you and Kate, all those years ago.
    Nicholas
    Would you shut up? This is no better than Aunt Vivian was here!
    Valentine
    I only kissed that Kiriakis guy because I thought it might help us keep the company! And Nicholas, why do you have to mention that old bag?
    Forrest
    Because YOU won’t let it get better. You continue to act cocky and stupid. And Valentine, that’s not the way you handle things in this business, damnit. I can fire you as easily as I hired you.
    Nicholas
    So now you’re blaming me for Alamain’s problems? You are really starting to show your true colors, Uncle Forrest. You want control of the company but when it starts to fall apart you always blame someone else. First it was Aunt Vivian, now me. I’m really starting to wonder why I even tried to help Alamain to begin with.
    Forrest
    Maybe I keep blaming my family because its always my family’s fault! Vivian was a manipulative witch, Lawrence won’t show his face, and now you and Valentine want to romantically engage with Victor and Belle, our top enemies.
    Valentine
    It was a one time kiss! Won’t you listen when I tell you I did it for you?!
    Billie
    That’s it, I’ve kept quiet long enough! Everyone needs to shut up and get a grip. And I mean everyone. Even you, Forrest.

    Bo and Hope’s House
    Bo walks towards Hope, half shocked at what she just said.
    Bo
    So, you really have changed, haven’t you? But you can’t expect me to just arrest you on the spot, I’m not that cold, Hope.
    Hope
    Oh Bo, I know. But I just want to get it over with. Because what more is there to talk about?? And we’re just going to make this harder every minute that goes by.
    Bo
    I was ready to do it back before you went on the run, but now, just seeing how you may have really changed for the better…I don’t know, I’m not sure if I can do it.
    Hope
    But Brady, you’re going to have to. Just please, do it! I’ve accepted the fact that things can never be completely happy with us again after all of this, and I know you know it, too. I see it in your eyes that you haven’t completely forgiven me for all of this.
    Bo
    That’s another thing I can’t do, Fancy Face…its going to take awhile…I mean you still killed Gina and lashed out and kept it all from me. But at the same time, I’m so proud of you. You came back, you really came back…and you remind me of the wife I actually love, not the wife I had a few months ago.
    Hope
    I understand, Bo, I do. And whatever you all do with me, I am going to try to get better. I promie you.
    Maggie walks out of the kitchen, but she gasps slightly to see Bo and Hope together and talking, and quickly goes back into the kitchen to give them some privacy.
    Hope
    Just please believe me when I say I want to get better, and am going to try and am trying.
    Bo
    And I’m going to try to believe you…its hard, after how much you lied, but I…will…try.

    Downtown Salem

    At the fashion show, Celeste walks up to Victor, who is sitting alone in one of the empty rooms. He is drinking a glass of champagne to celebrate the launch of Bella. He looks up to see Celeste.
    Victor
    Ahh, Celeste…just in time. I was wondering where you were earlier. Belle was wonderful. Titan has returned strong.
    Celeste
    I’m sure, dahling. It is just excellen, you have done so well. It is such a shame I didn’t get to know you before this.
    Victor
    No, it’s a shame I didn’t get to know you before this. However, I’m happy that I know you now. And the future is much brighter than it has been in a long time.
    Celeste
    That is oh too true…Victor, I have a question for you.
    Victor
    Yes?
    Celeste
    This small relationship that we have had over the past several months…are you serious about it?
    Victor
    What do you mean? Of course I am. You have no reason to doubt me.
    Celeste
    I know, dahling, I know…its just it feels like you and I only barely talk, and have dinner once every several weeks. And I know that recently before you and I began seeing each other, you were with that other woman…Victoria Lord.
    Victor
    Viki? Yes, I will admit that I still did have feelings for her for some time. But she left me. I got over her through you. You have no reason to even think about her now. Now the only one I even think about romantically is you.
    Celeste
    Dahling, I am so sorry for bringing this up, but it just seems like you are always in some type of entanglement with Alamain, or dealing with your ex-wife.
    Victor
    Oh, that’s what this is about, isn’t it? Its not about Viki, or even me being busy. Its about Vivian Alamain, a woman I never even loved.
    Celeste
    You must understand, Victor. Vivian is always around us, or you, or even me…just lurking. Always trying to take out everyone who gets in her way of getting to you! Just the other day she was trying to get into Titan, and you let her come here!
    Victor
    Celeste, again, I have absolutely no intention of letting that gold-digger into Alamain. I just let her come here to stop her ramblings. You don’t need to be concerned about her, she can do absolutely nothing to our relationship.
    Celeste, sighing
    Fine, Dahling. I do understand and will believe you.
    Victor
    I don’t think you do, but alas, I cannot fix that. Unfortunately, this was only a momentarily break I could take. I must get back out into the stage area.
    Victor then stands up and walks out, but not before kissing Celeste. She watches as he leaves, and once again sighs…


    Back in the private room that the Alamains are in, everyone looks in shock at Billie shouting at them.
    Billie
    Now listen, I haven’t even been working here long and I’m already getting sick of this inside fighting. Do you guys just not know how to be a family?! All I ever see when I’m around all of you at once is fighting! And if you want Alamain to be successful and live on, then you have to learn to work together.
    Forrest
    And Billie, you know that I’m trying! I have to lead this business, but I can’t if they keep acting like this! Nicholas has a girlfriend who’s one of our top problems, and Valentine isn’t taking any of this seriously!
    Billie
    Look, I see your point, but who cares if he is dating her?! Its not like he’s feeding her some type of private information, and if you don’t understand that, then you ARE just like Vivian! You should know how it feels to be constantly harassed for who you are with.
    Forrest
    I’m not harassing him, damnit!
    Nicholas
    Maybe not yet, but I know that you will be. I can just see it in your eyes. I really thought you’d be better, but the minute that you finally get what you want, you start acting like a jackass.
    Forrest
    That’s it. Get out. You will never speak to me like that, do you understand?
    Billie, interrupting
    No, Forrest, I’ll leave. Because obviously none of you know what teamwork means, and it makes me wonder if this business should be sold to Victor.
    Billie then stomps out of the room, and Forrest sighs and calls for her to come back, and when she doesn’t, he runs after her himself. Valentine simply shrugs as she leaves the room, while Nicholas rubs his temples, stressed out by all of this nonsense.

    Valentine walks along the halls, and bumps right into Celeste. Celeste jumps, but then sees its Valentine. She rolls her eyes slightly before speaking.
    Celeste
    Oh, its only you.
    Valentine
    Yes, it is me. And I think its time we put our plan into action before anymore crazy things happen around here.
    Celeste
    Yes, I agree, dahling. Its time for Vivian Alamain to fall, because she will not ruin my happiness. She almost gotten in my way once, and she won’t do it again.
    Valentine
    Oh, that’s right she won’t. This will be such a huge blow to her, Celeste, I promise you that she’ll be stuck in the gutter forever. Right where she belongs.
    Celeste
    Exactly. I am sure she will never take anything from either of us after this, if what you say you have in store for so big.
    Valentine
    Indeed I do! Again, just trust me.
    Celeste
    Unfortunately, I will have to. Now lets go.
    Valentine then turns with a laugh, and she and Celeste set off. They head towards the stage area, both of them hell bent on destroying the great Vivian Alamain…

    Downtown Salem

    Inside the fashion show building, many models continue to walk down the runway as photographers and some of the highest executives in Salem watch, the drama of the shooting calmed down now as Nicole has been rushed to the hospital. Belle stands behind the curtain at the back of the stage, readying herself to launch the new face of Bella Magazine.
    Belle
    I hope I can do this…all of Salem is going to be watching…and of all things my sister was just shot! I should be at the hospital with Mom, but I can’t leave Titan and Victor hanging.
    Announcer
    And now, the highly anticipated and long-waited for…re-launch of the famous Bella Magazine! The new face of Bella is its new lead model: Belle Black!
    Belle
    That’s my que…
    Belle then puts on a nice smile, still nervous on the inside, and she begins her walk down the runway. She puts her hands on her hips as photographers anxiously take pictures over and over, and she gives a wink at a few. Forrest and Billie closely watch, as do Victor and Justin at the other side of the room. Belle flips her hair and reaches the end of the runway, then turns around and continues to walk along the runway.
    Victor continues to watch and smirks, Bella Magazine finally being officially back.
    Victor
    Watch out, Alamain, because Titan has returned and its better than ever…

    Episode: 254, Bella’s Back!
    Written by Tara Smith

    Salem Police Station

    Bo is visiting Julie in her holding cell, and she is trying to plea with him to let her out for helping Hope when she was trying to hide the murder of Gina.
    Julie
    Bo, please, I’ve been in here long enough! You have to understand why I didn’t tell you about Hope in the beginning! She needed to do it herself, in her own time! And I didn’t expect her to get so out of hand, but in the end she did tell you, and I’m sure she will return! Hope is not the kind of woman, whether she is smoking those drugs or not, to leave you hanging!
    Bo
    Julie, she’s been missing for weeks. And if you had told me back when she confessed to you, she may have never started drinking, smoking, or never even left Salem.
    Julie
    I know why you are mad, I really do. And you should be, but I just want you to look at this from Hope’s point of view for a minute!
    Bo
    Hope and I are husband and wife, she should have trusted me, but she never did. Instead she sneaked off and killed Gina, then hid it for months. And now, I need her to come back so we can work this out. That is part of why I’ve put you in here.
    Julie
    What??
    Bo
    You deserved to be arrested, and believe me I was mad at you, but I was also using you as bait to get her back to Salem. If she didn’t get too far, she may have heard about it because how large this case has been, and its been hitting the news stands all over.
    Julie
    So I was just your pawn?!?!
    Bo
    No, you needed to be put in here, but it wasn’t the only reason why. And if you want me to be honest with you, you do have a chance of getting out eventually.
    Julie
    Thank goodness!!! I’m not happy about you using me, but at least I may be able to get out. I just pray Hope is alright, wherever she is.

    Bo and Hope’s House

    Hope slowly walks up to the doorway of her house, seeing no one else is around. She gently touches the door handle, evemn crying a little, wondering if this will be the last time she even visits her own house. She opens the door, peeking in. She sees Maggie with Pamela and Addie in her arms, also with Jan’s son, talking to herself.
    Maggie
    I hope Abe is alright…I only got to briefly see him last night, and he still hasn’t woken up…if only I could be there right now, but Mike has told me no and my family probably needs me right now too.
    Hope
    Aunt M-M-Maggie???
    Maggie’s eyes widen and looks to the doorway in shock, silently staring at her niece!!!
    Maggie
    OH MY…HOPE!!!!!
    Maggie jumps up and puts the twins down for a moment, then rushes and hugs Hope! Both of them finally let their tears pour out and just remain in their arms.
    Maggie
    You’re finally home…oh Hope, you’re finally home…

    Downtown Salem

    Belle is just finishing her runway walk, and goes back into the shadows, but not before blowing one last kiss at the audience. Many in the room clap as the show moves on to its next model, and Victor gives an approving nod to Justin. Across the room, Forrest and Billie still stand together.
    Billie
    Well, it looks like they’ve gotten themselves off to a good start. Belle’s been one of the best received models that we’ve seen today.
    Forrest
    True, but we still have our own, and many others. We’re not even that far into the show yet, so don’t worry.
    Billie
    Hey, where the heck is Valentine? She said she’d be late but I haven’t seen her since early this morning.
    Forrest
    Probably horsing around somewhere. She does need to be here but I can worry about her later. We need to watch Victor, Vivian, and that guy who looks like Victor’s new sidekick. He’s been with him this whole time, and I’ve heard over the past day or two that he’s gotten a new right hand man, maybe his nephew or something. But Victor is acting way too smug about his re-launch.
    Billie
    Victor’s not one to get too cocky, Forrest. I am not saying we should panic or anything, or that we don’t have a chance, but I think we really need to gain an edge and quick, because I’m sure he’s got much more than what we just saw. If we don’t stop him now, he’s going to get just what he wants: Alamain.

    Elsewhere, Valentine and Celeste are still in their small hallway while the fashion show goes on. Valentine files her nails a little as she waits for Peter, while Celeste watches her closely. Valentine looks up and sees Peter waiting for her off in the distance, and she smiles.
    Valentine
    Celeste, darrrrrrrling, excuse me for a minute, will you?
    Celeste
    Fine, if you insist, dahling.

    Valentine then walks away, and over to where Peter is. He sighs lightly as he looks on at Valentine.
    Valentine
    Glad you could show up. I hope you are ready for an eventful day, because I’ve got loads of work for you.
    Peter
    I can’t believe you are making me do this. Do you know what type of damage this could not only do to Vivian, but to me?
    Valentine
    You are a DiMera. You’ll rise again from the ashes! However poor Vivian is not that strong, so she’ll never rise again, not after this. And it really shouldn’t be that hard.
    Peter
    I’d suffer disgrace from all of Salem!
    Valentine
    Like that hasn’t happened before? Hello, Jungle Fever?!?!
    Peter
    That wasn’t my fault and you know it.
    Valentine
    Oh just quit your whining! Now you can either expose that one stormy night with the hag, or I can tell everyone about our many, many nights. Its your choice, but I hope you can make the right one.
    Peter, sighing again
    Okay, what do you want me to do?
    Valentine
    A little later, just wait for my signal. Trust me, you’ll know what it is when you hear it.
    Valentine then gives him one little pat on the chest and chuckles as she walks off, however not back to Celeste, and heads out into the main interior of the building as Celeste and Peter both wait…

    Belle returns to her dressing room, and Nicholas is soon to follow. She gives him a small smile, and he grins back at her.
    Nicholas
    You were great out there. Really amazing.
    Belle
    Shouldn’t that make you unhappy? Because technically we are rivals.
    Nicholas
    When it comes to you, who cares? I can’t hold back, and even with all that chaos we had earlier because of the shooting, you were stunning.
    Belle
    Yeah. I wish I could be down at the hospital, but I need to stay here for Titan and my sake. After all the deaths and near-deaths the last few years, it’d be hard to watch another.
    Nicholas
    You’re right about that. But maybe I can make you feel better…
    Belle and Nicholas then lean in to kiss, but suddenly Forrest and Billie walk up to the doorway of the dressing room!
    Forrest
    Making out with the enemy, Nicholas?
    Nicholas, pulling back from the kiss
    Uncle Forrest, you know Belle and I are in a relationship right now. Don’t start kicking up a problem about every single thing like Aunt Vivian did.
    Forrest
    I am not Vivian, but when we are in such dire straits, I do not approve of you always being with someone working directly for our top competitor. I don’t mind if you two are in a relationship, but don’t cling to each other every five minutes.
    Belle
    Excuse me?
    Forrest
    No offense, Belle, you are a very sweet girl but again you do work for Victor, and are the new face of Bella.
    Billie
    Forrest, are you sure you are not being just a little bit too harsh on them?
    Forrest
    In times like this, I have to be.
    Victor and Justin then walk in to congratulate Belle, however Victor scowls when he sees the Alamain’s inside.
    Victor
    What are you all doing here? You have no business with us.
    Forrest
    We were just leaving. By the way, Victor, congratulations on your launch of Bella Magazine.
    Victor
    Thank you. That reminds me: Forrest, Billie, Nicholas…we’ll all have to meet soon to discuss my buyout of Alamain.
    Forrest
    There won’t be any meeting, Victor: You haven’t bought all our stock yet and you aren’t going to.
    Billie
    I’m sure we can come to an agreement on all of this which will benefit both sides.
    Victor
    I am sorry but I am buying out Alamain, whether any of you like it or not. You all have been thorns in my side for too long, and Alamain does have some useful models that Bella could use.
    Billie
    Our company is almost flat broke, what could you possibly want with it besides several models?
    Victor
    Ohh Billie, my dear, you’ve been out of the fashion business for far too long. If I may be frank, my goals are none of your business.
    Forrest
    They are when you are messing with my family’s company.
    Victor, laughing
    It won’t be for long, son.
    Nicholas
    Could all of you stop for a few minutes, please? This is no better than when Aunt Vivian was still here!
    Justin
    I agree. Victor, Belle, I think we should go.
    Out of the blue, Valentine walks in, and looks around at everyone in the room. Victor glances at her and smiles, extending his hand.
    Victor
    Ah, you must be Valentine Heart, the new business executive at Alamain.
    Valentine
    Why yes, I am. And you must be the infamous Victor Kiriakis.
    Victor
    Indeed. I regret to inform you, Miss Heart, that you won’t be in the company for long…soon, I will be buying it out.
    Valentine
    Awww, that’s so sad…are you sure you want to put poor little me out of a job?
    Victor
    I’m sure you’ll find something else.
    Valentine
    Well maybe I could convince you to make a different decision…now come here, give your momma some sugar!
    With that, Valentine then jumps right onto Victor, pulling him into a kiss!!!

    Bo and Hope’s House

    Maggie and Hope sit down on the couch, and Hope holds her aunt’s hand.
    Maggie
    Hope, we all thought you’d never come back….Julie’s in jail, Bo has been searching and searching, and your twins have missed their mother.
    Hope, looking at Pamela and Addie as she slowly picks them up
    Oh…my daughters…I can hold my daughters again…
    Maggie
    Yes, you can…I think we’re all so happy to see you…you look like you’ve been through torture.
    Hope
    In some ways, I have been. Its too long to explain where I was and what happened.
    Maggie
    And I don’t care. Seeing you alive and well is enough.
    Hope, looking down at Jan’s son
    Who’s that?
    Maggie, smiling
    Hope…this is your new grandson.
    Hope gasps as Maggie picks the infant up, and shows him to Hope…she looks down on it and sobs some, remembering Shawn.
    Hope
    I can’t believe that I was so absorbed in what I did that I wasn’t able to find out my grandchild had been born…
    Maggie
    Well, hopefully that is in the past now…you have let everything go, haven’t you?
    Hope
    I’m making a true effort not to drink or smoke, and I got rid of my pipe…I want to put this whole thing in the past, but first I have to face Bo and the police.
    Maggie
    Unfortunately, yes. But now you have made a big step by just coming back, and soon, it will all be over.

    Downtown Salem

    Victor throws Valentine off of him, and she falls right onto the wall! She gets up and brushes herself off.
    Valentine
    Well! It was worth a shot though.
    Victor
    Miss Heart, I will not tolerate that. If you think sexually harassing me will help you and your family at all, you can think again.
    Forrest, intervening
    I am sorry for that…sudden move. Now, lets get serious, shall we?
    Victor
    There is nothing more to discuss. Now, leave my model’s dressing room. She has much more work to do during the show.
    Billie
    Fine, but we’ll meet again.
    Forrest, Billie, Valentine, and Nicholas all then walk out. Nicholas looks at Belle one last time before leaving, and she looks at Victor and Justin.
    Victor
    Now that that is over: Well done, Belle! You have proved yourself to be the true face of Bella, and from how that walk looked out there, we are off to a smashing start. Alamain will not pose a problem to us for much longer.
    Belle
    Thank you, I did my best, even with the family crisis. And hopefully I’ll do better when I go out there again later.
    Victor
    I am sure you will. And no matter how much I hate her, I give my best wishes to Nicole and your family.
    Belle
    Thanks.
    Justin
    Just keep pointing your head up like you have been, Belle, and everything in the business, and outside the business, will be fine.
    Justin and Victor then leave as Belle goes to get her next dress on…

    Bo and Hope’s House

    While Maggie is in the kitchen getting Hope something to drink, Hope walks around the living room, and she slowly walks over to a cabinet, and then pulls out …a bottle of alcohol! She looks at it, and is tempted to take a drink, and almost pops it open, but then she turns and tosses it into the trash! She takes one last look at it, remembering how much she has been drinking the past several months, and then hears someone walk in…she turns around to see Bo!
  10. daysfan
    Nicole is rushed into Salem University Hospital as Mike runs over to find out what is going on
    “What happened?”
    Marlena
    “Some one shot her. Please Mike, save her. I can’t loose my daughter now.”
    Mike
    “We’ll do everything we can.” He says as he rushes Nicole into the E.R. for surgery to remove the bullet. Tony walks up behind Marlena and wraps his arms around her.
    “Don’t worry Marlena. I know we don’t know much about our newly found daughter, but I know enough to know she is a fighter. She’s got DiMera blood in her veins. It’s going to take more than a bullet to take one of us out. You should already know this.”
    Marlena
    “I guess you’re right. I just want to get the chance to know her.”
    “Well you sure aren’t missing anything” They both hear. They turn around and see Sami(Stami)
    Marlena
    “How dare you? How dare you talk about you’re sister that way? She is fighting for her life in there.”
    Stami
    “Let the Bitch die. Who cares?”
    Tony
    “Marlena, I suggest you get this twit together. I will not stand here and hear of such disrespect for my daughter.”
    Marlena slaps Sami across the face. To her astonishment, Stami slaps Marlena back.

    Spears Mansion
    Jan walks out onto the patio where Lucas is sitting on a lawn chair, enjoying the starry night.
    Lucas
    “Hey, done at the fashion show?
    Jan
    "Yeah, some big drama there. I don't even want to be involved with whatever the hell has happened in this crazy town, so I just decided to leave and save the Spears Industries stuff for another day.
    Lucas
    “Can I be honest with you about something?”
    Jan, looking into his eyes
    “Of course you can. I don’t want there to be no secrets between us. Lucas you are the love of my life.”
    He smiles and kisses her then pulls back and looks into her eyes.
    “This is going to sound strange, but Anna has been on my mind.”
    Jan, rolling her eyes
    “You’re right, it is strange. Why in the hell have you been thinking of crazy Anna?”
    Lucas
    “It’s what she has been saying. About Nicole. She said Nicole is your enemy.”
    Jan
    “Please. I barely know Nicole. You have to really ignore Anna’s crazy rubbish.”
    Lucas
    “No I’m serious Jan. Maybe Anna knows something we don’t.”
    Jan
    “Like what?”
    Lucas
    “I say we invite her over and talk with her.”
    Jan
    “You can’t be serious?”
    Lucas
    “I am. If Nicole is your enemy, you need to know and find out why. You could be in danger. You know Nicole is dangerous. You may not know her very well, but she still got you to try to kill Victor Kiriakis all those years ago."
    Jan
    “You really want me to do this?”
    Lucas
    “Do it for the safety of our family.”
    Jan
    “Fine than, call the whack job up and I’ll make us something to eat.”
    Lucas, giving her another peck
    “I love you.”
    Jan, getting up
    “I love you too.”
    Lucas, grabbing her arm
    “No wait a minute.”
    Jan
    “Lucas, I have to go cook.”
    Lucas, standing up
    “That can wait.”
    Jan
    “What’s the matter? You’re looking serious”
    Lucas
    “Jan I love you more than words can express. I love being with you and Ben. I thank God everyday for sending you in my life” He pulls out a ring box from his pocket and gets down on one knee. Jan is astounded, as Lucas continues
    “Jan Britney Spears, will you do me the honor in becoming Mrs. Lucas Roberts. Will you marry me?”


    Back at the Hospital
    Tony, looking at Stami
    “Don’t you ever let me see you hit your mother again young lady.”
    Marlena
    “No Tony it’s alright.”
    Stami
    “You two can just screw yourselves. And I hope Nicole dies!” And with that, she turns around and walks off.
    Tony
    “She’s out of control.”
    Marlena
    “Something is off. Something just isn’t right with Samantha. Something in her eyes.”
    Before she can continue Anna barges in.
    “I heard about Nicole. I am so sorry. Is she ok?”
    Marlena
    “Anna, what business do you have here?! Don’t be so concerned about my daughter now! If you were really concerned, you would have told Tony and I the truth when you first found out Nicole was our daughter.”
    Tony
    “Marlena Please, You’re going through a hard time. Let’s grab a a cup of coffee.”
    Marlena
    “Don’t patronize me Tony DiMera. I am tired of people thinking they can just play with my life.”
    Anna
    “Marlena, like I’ve said before. I had no ill intention. I wanted to make sure Nicole was your daughter. I have nothing to gain by scheming with this info.”
    Marlena
    “What do you mean make sure?”
    Anna
    “I wasn’t sure if Nicole was your daughter. Right before Kristen shot me, I had reason to believe that J-” Before she barely gets Jan’s name out, Mike barges out the E.R. and the focus switches to him.
    Marlena
    “Mike, Please tell me you have good news.”
    Tony
    “Will my daughter be ok?”
    Mike continues to look at Marlena, Tony and Anna with a worried look.

    Downtown Salem

    It is several days later in Salem. Inside a very large building, the fashion show is just beginning. Models are already starting to walk down the runway as photographers take countless pictures of them. Meanwhile in an office, someone pours themselves a glass of champagne, with Elvis at this person’s side.
    Mysterious Person
    You know, it really was brilliant to have a fashion show. Seeing so many businesses come here with all of their models…its fabulous.
    Elvis
    It is, but you seem so interested in Bella Magazine and Alamain. You act like the other businesses are just here for show. And I don’t really see what I could get out of this if its all about Alamain and Titan.
    Mysterious Person
    You get me not exposing you to the PD. Just follow my lead, dear, and you’ll be fine.
    Elvis
    Hey, I call the shots! Do you understand? No one can get any power over a DiMera, especially not you!
    Mysterious Person
    Elvis, you are in my territory now. You can’t play that game with me like you can with everyone else in this town. This is going to be my day, not yours. I’ve spent some time arranging this ever since I got out of your little basement.
    Elvis
    Fine, fine. But don’t get used to it, and do what you have to do and then I can leave.
    Mysterious Person
    Oh believe me, I will. I definitely will, and I am going to make sure that this is a day to remember.

    Episode: 253, The Fashion Show
    Written by Tara Smith

    Inside a dressing room at the fashion show, Jan is speaking to some of Spears Industries models right before they go out on the runway.
    Jan
    “Now, you’ve got to make yourselves look appealing and excellent out there. If we want to get Spears Industries bought by one of those big bad companies, we have to make the company look good. I want you all to be at your best, this is the most crucial fashion show we’ve ever had. And I’m not kidding.”
    All the models nod at Jan as they walk out of the room, and she crosses her arms and sighs slightly. Then suddenly Lucas walks in and kisses her on the cheek.
    Lucas
    Hey there, thought I’d drop by. Oh and I dropped the baby off at Aunt Maggie’s, I really think they should spend some time together, and so far the baby has spent its most time with you and me.
    Jan
    You know I was not a big fan of the idea to let him stay with Maggie. She’s just as bad as Julie. But she is Shawn’s family so I’ll let it slide this time.
    Lucas
    Relax. It will all be fine. Besides, he needed to get out of that mansion.
    Jan
    I guess you’re right. I just am so tense today, because I need to sell Spears Industries and fast. Its been available for too long and we haven’t had any interested buyers.
    Lucas
    Well you’ve only been trying to sell it for a couple months, and usually it does take awhile for a company to get sold, especially if you’re trying to get one of the higher companies to buy it.
    Jan
    Once again you’ve got a point. I guess I just want to get this out of my hair so I can focus on us and mothering my son. And the thing that makes it worse about being here is that Belle’s here, and probably going to be the star of the whole freakin’ thing since she is the new face of Bella Magazine.
    Lucas
    You think about her too much. Just relax and focus on stuff that actually needs to be focused on.
    Jan
    Yeah. Here, lets go watch the show.
    Jan and Lucas then leave the dressing room, heading out to the stage area…

    Salem Trainstation

    Down at the local train station, a train pulls to a stop and the doors swing open, and many people begin to bustle in and out. Soon a ripped-clothed and dirty Hope Brady stumbles out of the train, as she looks out onto her hometown and remembers her time in Pasadena with Suga and Sister Patterson.
    Hope
    I must just keep remembering what Sister Pat told me….I have to face this and get it over with.
    Voice
    Oh that won’t be hard, Fancy Face!
    Hope turns to see Megan Hathway DiMera right beside her, and she slowly backs away from the deranged spoiled woman.
    Hope
    Megan, how’d you-
    Megan
    Oh please, you forget my family rules this town! You are finally back from whatever hole you crawled into, and now its time for you to meet your maker.
    Hope
    I don’t have time for you! I have to get to Bo!
    Hope punches Megan in the face and then tries to take off, but Megan grabs her by the hair!!!!

    Downtown Salem

    Inside another one of the dressing rooms at the fashion show, Stami and Nicole are sitting side by side as they do their make-up.
    Nicole
    You know, its just so…great that Mom got you a job here.
    Stami
    Don’t call her “Mom”. She’s not your mother, she never should have been and never will be.
    Nicole
    Can’t you get over it? I am your Mommy’s new, and best, child. You are acting so childish about this I almost enjoy it.
    Stami
    Don’t bluff, you KNOW you enjoy it. You get a kick out of torturing me, its all you ever seem to do. You can never find anything better to do with your time. You tried to get Austin to irritate me, then tried to get Eric again, and now this crazy issue.
    Nicole
    Don’t you EVER say that again! I loved Eric and Austin, and they almost loved me back, but Greta and Carrie screwed that up for me! Life does not revolve all around you, Sami! I barely even think about you anymore.
    Stami
    Yeah, I guess you are too busy getting looneys to whack your husbands.
    Nicole
    That was over four years ago, you are just using every little snide comment at me you can find, aren’t you? You’re such a pitiful girl.
    Stami
    I’m a saint compared to trash like you.

    In a small hallway at the other side of the building, Celeste and Valentine stand together, and Valentine has several small tapes in her hands.
    Celeste
    Dahling, what are we going to do? You said you had something in store, yet you have barely said a word about it!
    Valentine
    Can’t you be patient? I have half of what we need, I am waiting for the other half to get here.
    Celeste
    This had better be worth the wait. I am a patient woman, Valentine, but my patience with Vivian has run thin.
    Valentine
    As has mine, Darrrrrrrling, and I have the perfect way to destroy her today. I have so much dirt on Vivian its sad, and some of it is on these tapes, but there’s one crucial piece that needs to get here soon.
    Celeste
    I imagine that what you have on those tapes is about her causing all that havoc back in 2006, but I wish you would tell me what this other little piece is.
    Valentine
    Oh, but that would ruin the fun in the surprise. And trust me, it will be a surprise.

    Out on the stage, many models are walking down the runway, and Forrrest and Billie are standing together on the side of the stage. Forrest is holding Billie in his arms and they kiss before pulling back and watching the show again.
    Billie
    Do you really think we should be kissing each other so much in the middle of a fashion show? I mean shouldn’t we focus on Alamain?
    Forrest
    Who cares? You just…are hard to resist. But yes, you are right. We’ve got to somehow keep Titan from buying out the company.
    Billie
    Will the show help us with that?
    Forrest
    It could. You know, I do hear that Spears Industries is for sale…if we could buy that company, it might help us against Titan. The problem is is that we don’t have the money. Alamain is nearly bankrupt.
    Billie
    Well we’ve got to help ourselves somehow.
    Forrest then glances around, and sees Vivian on the other side of the room! He angrily stomps off towards her…

    Back in another dressing room, Belle has one all to herself and she is just putting her dress on as she nervously prepares to launch the new face of Bella Magazine. The door opens and she jumps slightly only to see Nicholas. He smiles at her and puts his hands on her shoulders as he kisses her.
    Belle
    You shouldn’t be in here, you are technically one of my boss’s opponents.
    Nicholas
    No one has to know, do they?
    Belle
    Yeah but I have to get ready, and you have to go help your uncle for your sake, before Victor makes sure you are all out on the street!
    Nicholas
    Please, I’d risk that for spending some time with you…
    Belle
    Well, maybe just a few kisses wouldn’t hurt…
    Belle then turns around as Nicholas chuckles, and they lean in and kiss passionately, and just hold each other for a moment until Belle backs away.
    Belle
    I really have to finish getting ready…
    Nicholas
    Okay okay, but I’ll see you later, okay?
    Belle winks at him as he smiles back and then leaves, as she continues to prepare…

    Salem Trainstation

    Megan grabs Hope by the hair, and Hope angrily turns around and grabs Megan’s hand and tosses her to the ground, and Megan scowls and darts up towards Hope and slams her against the wall. Hope kicks Megan, causing Megan to trip but then Hope catches her by HER hair, and pulls Megan back up.
    Megan
    Whats wrong, Hope? Too nice to let me get hurt?
    Hope
    No, Megan. I didn’t let you fall because I’m not like you, and I never will be.
    Megan
    If you aren’t like me then why did you kill Princess Gina?
    Hope
    I am not that person anymore. I am not the person that drinks, not the person that smokes crack, tries to hide her crimes, or go on the run. No, that’s YOU! I learned something very important while I was gone for Salem, and I am never going to be that person again. I am going to face Bo, and face the law, no matter what they throw at me. And that’s why I am not like you: I’m not as petty and foolish as you.
    Megan
    Damn, you really are crazy, aren’t you?
    Hope
    Actually, I’m not. No matter what you think. I have bigger things to take care of. Goodbye, Megan.
    Hope then walks away from Megan, as Megan stares at her, steaming in anger.
    Megan
    Fine, Hope, condemn yourself. I’ll just be there to watch your life collapse.

    Downtown Salem

    Inside Nicole and Stami’s dressing room, the two continue to argue.
    Nicole
    Trash? I am an Evans and a DiMera. Oh I forgot, you have to be a BRADY to be a good person.
    Stami
    You may be related to my mom by blood, but not by heart. And you never will be.
    Nicole
    The same could be said about you.
    Stami
    No, because I actually loved my mother once, you never have and don’t seem like you ever will. I never see you around town having those mother-daughter moments with her, or anything. I think you just want money from the DiMera Fortune. Am I right?
    Nicole
    I’m not a golddigger anymore, and you need to get that through your thick-head!
    Stami
    I never will because that’s a lie. You are nothing but a pricy piece of trash Nicole, because if you weren’t, well…maybe you’d keep a man for more than five minutes.

    As Stami gets up, Nicole looks at her with boiling anger and then jumps up and grabs Stami! She then hurls Stami into the wall, and Stami screams out and rushes back at Nicole, and slaps her in the face, then he grabs Nicole by the chin and SLAMS her down onto the table with all of the make-up, and as Nicole coughs Stami begins to choke her!! Nicole barely manages to bite out on Stami’s hand and Stami yells out in pain, as Nicole escapes and gasps for air, and then her eyes dart to Stami and she pulls on his hair…CAUSING THE WIG TO COME OFF! Nicole looks on in shock as Stami shoots her a death glare…

    On the runway, models continue to run down it as many watch, including Lucas, Jan, Billie, Nicholas, and Vivian. Forrest walks up to Vivian and grabs her by the arm.
    Forrest
    What are you doing here? You have no business here.
    Vivian
    Actually, I do, dear nephew.
    Forrest
    What are you talking about? You quit Alamain. You are out 100%.
    Vivian
    True, but…I may just be getting a job at Titan.
    Forrest
    What?? Old man Kiriakis was foolish enough to let you in?
    Vivian
    He told me to be here, and I am going to make sure that he gives me the job, and then I’ll take down your puny company and your little girlfriend.
    Forrest
    You won’t touch Alamain. Now that you are gone it will finally recover from what you put it in. And stay away from Billie. She doesn’t need you taunting her anymore than you already have.
    Vivian
    As you wish…
    Forrest looks at her one last time before letting her go and walking back over to Billie, and they all continue to watch the show…

    In Belle’s dressing room, as she is now finishing her make up, Victor and Justin walk in.
    Victor
    Almost ready?
    Belle
    Yeah, just finishing up.
    Victor
    Excellent. This is going to be a legendary day for all of us, and Titan. Bella Magazine will be officially launched, with you as its primary new face.
    Belle
    I’m actually a little nervous. I mean this seems huge.
    Justin
    It is, but I’m sure you’ll do fine. From what I know and have seen in the mere days I’ve been back you’ve been excellent, and you’ll do great as a model.
    Belle
    Thanks.
    Victor
    Well, its nearly time. Lets go.

    Belle and Justin both nod as Belle finishes with her make-up and follows them back outside, and they go back down beside the runway as she heads towards the runway itself…

    Back inside Stami and Nicole’s dressing room, Nicole slowly stumbles away from Stami in shock at pulling off his wig, and he slowly removes the gun he told Sami he would use on Marlena…
    Nicole
    Wh-who are you? Because you sure as hell aren’t Sami.
    Stami
    I was going to use this on Evans but you’ll do for now…

    Stami then FIRES the gun and the shot is heard by many throughout the building, and she nearly screams as it hits her, and her body falls to the ground. Stami looks on at her motionless form, and quickly runs out of the room and darts away, but only minutes later Tony and Marlena quickly run in to see their “daughter” lying on the ground in a pool of blood…

    Episode#252: Mysterious Guest

    -At the hospital, Celeste sighs as she watches her daughter just stand alone on the balcony. She almost goes out there but thinks to herself that she needs this time alone, and then Celeste takes out her cell phone and calls Victor. As he picks up and says “Victor Kiriakis”, she then says its Celeste and that she needs to talk to him, and on the other line Victor asks if something’s wrong and that he can hear it in her voice, and Celeste says:

    Celeste:Abraham just suffered a stroke.
    Victor:Oh my, that’s…terrible. I’m so sorry, Celeste, I knew how close he and Lexie, and you and him, were. How is Lexie?
    Celeste:Oh Dahling, my poor Alexandra is not holding up well at all. I can’t bear to see her be so saddened by this, and just after this custody trial finally ended. She was awarded full custody of Theodore, but then that was when this tradgedy struck Abraham.
    Victor:If there is absolutely anything I can do, please let me know.
    Celeste:I will indeed. How are you, dahling?
    Victor:Things are going excellent. My nephew, Justin, has returned to help me with Titan and we are about to buyout Alamain and relaunch Bella Magazine in an enormous fashion show. Vivian finally has met her end in the business area, as her family kicked her out of Alamain, however now she is begging me for a job here at Titan.
    Celeste:How horrid. You are not going to let her in, are you?
    Victor:Never, but I did tell her that she could come to the fashion show and I would see how she faired there and then make my decision, but I doubt anything will come from it.
    Celeste:Good, because she is the last thing either of us need.
    Victor:You are very correct there. Listen, Celeste, I am very busy and have a lot of work to do. Perhaps we can meet for dinner tomorrow night, or you could come to the fashion show with me? I apologize for leaving in such a time like this but I must. Goodbye.

    As Victor hangs up, Celeste narrows her eyes and glances at Lexie one last time, before dialing the number of Valentine Heart!

    -At the DiMera Mansion, Stefano is drinking a glass of champagne as Renee walks in. He smiles lightly at her and she asks where everyone else is, and Stefano replies that Peter is helping Alexandra at her custody trial, and he has no idea where Kristen, Elvis, and Megan ran off to. As Renee pours herself a glass of champagne she asks Stefano if he really had to be so hard on Tony at the meeting, and Stefano says:

    Stefano:That man raped my daughter, your own sister! Nonetheless she is practically HIS sister, and this is not the first time Tony has decided to come on to one of his family members, you should know that better than anyone! I tried to accept that man even after I learned he was Enrico’s son, even after he locked me up in that chamber, yet he does THIS! And he has always faked his loyalty to me, even back in Italy only months ago!
    Renee:But father, Tony has had an alternate personality for years now! His name was Vince and he was a very very vile man, only recently did Tony cure it!
    Stefano:Enough about Tony. I do not want you obsessing over him again. Is that the only reason you came in here?
    Renee:No, father, actually…there is something I need to tell you. Elvis and I have one last…piece of news for you.
    Stefano:What is it? And it had better be nothing that could ruin our plans.
    Renee:Well…not exactly…but it could pose a problem. Um, father, you weren’t the only one that Elvis and I kidnapped.
    Stefano:What the hell do you mean? You have someone else stuffed in our basement?!

    -At Helena’s hideout, she kicks Steve as he tries to choke Stefan and her thugs manage to pull Steve back, and throw him back on the chair and Helena orders them to tie him up quickly, and Steve vows to Stefan that he’ll get him for this, and Stefan laughs and snaps that he doubts that, and they have him and his little wife right in the palm of their hands.

    - “Stami” is on the phone at the Salem Inn, still disguised as Sami, and smirks as he says that he’d be happy to take the modeling job for DiMera Enterprises. He thanks the person on the phone and tells them he will be sure to be at the fashion show, and then hangs up. He smirks as he walks into the other room to see the real Sami bound and gagged. As he strokes her cheek, he says:

    Stami:Looks like I, I mean you, are going to a fashion show in a few days. Lets see what trouble we can cook up there…

    *Life in Salem Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo2A7rZhZGA *

    -At the Alamain Mansion, Valentine walks in to the living room hearing her cell phone ringing, and she picks it up and says “Hello”, and she hears Celeste on the other line. Valentine grins and tells Celeste that she has wonderful news for them, and that Vivian is finally out of Alamain, and is nothing but a street rat! On the other line, Celeste angrily says:

    Celeste:She might not be for long. She is begging Victor for a job at Titan!
    Valentine:So? All she could do there would be ruining Titan, which would be even better for Alamain!
    Celeste:You see, Valentine dahling, I am currently in a relationship with Victor, and her getting a job at Titan would put her deeper into my life than she was before! And Vivian Alamain is no fool. She will fall and get right back up again, and we have to make sure she is taken care of once and for all. And if you do not help me Valentine, I will take you down right with your sister.
    Valentine:Oh fine fine! I have the perfect way to get that hag out of both our lives for good! Just meet me at the fashion show downtown in a couple of days. I think I have the perfect plan in mind for my dear old sister.
    Celeste:You had better.

    Celeste hangs up, as Valentine mutters to herself that Celeste sure can be demanding, and then dials another number…

    -Renee shakes her head and answers no, but then says that they did, however that guest is not exactly there anymore. Stefano asks Renee what have she and Elvis done, and Renee looks around for a moment, before whispering something into Stefano’s ear. Stefano’s eyes widen and he yells “WHAT?! Have you two lost your minds?! This is like playing with fire!” and Renee tells him that Elvis thought it would be useful in the future, and Stefano then tells her that he had better be right, or this could have terrible consequences and mess up everything, however its nothing he can’t handle! Renee gulps and sighs as she wonders what she and Elvis have gotten themselves into.

    -Steve growls to Helena and Stefan that they can’t keep this up forever, and Stefan tells him that they won’t have to, and their scheme has only just begun. Helena smiles at her son and tells him to go back to Kayla to keep her occupied while she continues to sit with their little prisoner. Stefan nods obediently and leaves, as Helena thinks to herself that victory is finally hers!

    -The doorbell rings at the Alamain Mansion, and Valentine smiles and goes to answer it to see…Peter Blake! Peter asks her what the hell she wants and his sister is going through a tough time right now, and he should still be at the hospital to support her, whether she wants it or not. Valentine tells him that they have more important things to discuss, and Peter asks:

    Peter:Like what?
    Valentine:Like Vivian Alamain.
    Peter:How could *I* help you with some issue with your sister?
    Valentine:Oh Peter, don’t play stupid with me. I’m your girl, remember?
    Peter:That was a long time ago.
    Valentine:Yes, that’s true, but I will never forget how you looked after we got done each time…it was exactly how you looked when you and Vivvy came out of that bedroom once the storm ended.
    Peter:I don’t need to hear this.
    Valentine:I don’t know why you want to forget our little…affair so much, and why you decided to take Vivian over me. I know all about it, Peter. I’m not stupid. I know you through and through.
    Peter:Please, Valentine, shut up. Just tell me what you want.
    Valentine:I want you to expose your little night with Vivian to ALL at the fashion show!
    Peter:What?!?!?! HELL no!
    Valentine:Its either that, or I could tell the town about *our* fun times over the years.

    Peter clenches his fists as Valentine chuckles, and tells her fine, but don’t expect anymore favors from him. He then worriedly storms out, not wanting his family to find out what happened between him and Vivian during the storm or him and Valentine years ago…

    -Back at the Salem Inn, Stami goes over to one of his drawers and opens it, and then as he pulls something out he tells Sami that so much could happen at this fashion show that would screw up her life forever, and he turns around with a GUN in his hand and Sami’s eyes widen in horror and tries to scream but can’t, and he rolls his eyes and tells her not to worry and that he won’t use it on her…but as he looks at her dresser he looks at all the pictures of the ones she cares about, and then says:

    Stami:But, I certainly could use it on one of these people…maybe your ex, Lucas? No…you probably don’t care one bit about him anymore. OH, little Belle? Not her either…I need someone who would really just cause you to fall apart….oh wait, I’ve got the perfect person…

    Stami then pics up a picture and turns around to show it to Sami…and the picture is of…MARLENA! Sami struggles with her ropes, trying to break free frantically, and he tells her that its still of no use, and then Stami also says:

    Stami:But anyway, yes…Marlena’s the one. In a few days, its bye bye, Doc.

    Spears Mansion
    Lucas looks at Will, astonished and angered at Will telling him he’s not his father anymore, and Will tries to turn to leave but Lucas grabs his arm.
    Lucas
    “Hey, I AM your father! I always have been and always will be! You can’t just decide whether I am or not, it’s a given son and I’m also your authority.”
    Will
    “Sorry, Lucas, but I think I just disowned you. Nice knowing you, but I have other stuff to take care of. It seems you are doing just fine with Jan Brady here. You know, I actually have a life now, other than whining about you and Mom. Which I see will never ever happen “
    Jan
    “It’s Spears, thanks”
    Lucas
    “What kind of life??? What are you talking about? Why won’t you tell me what you’ve been doing these past several months, huh?! I haven’t heard from you, no phone call, no letter, no nothing. I didn’t know if my only son was dead or alive. Do you know how that makes me feel? “
    Will
    “Oh, shove off!”
    Will tries to push Lucas away, but Lucas still manages to angrily hold onto Will, and then takes out his cell phone and dials a number.
    Will
    “Who the hell are you calling? The police to come cart me off? I didn‘t do anything!”
    Lucas
    “No, I’m calling your mother, Will. She ha been worried sick about you too. She needs to be here. “
    Jan, rolling her eyes,
    “Oh great. Just what I need” She says under breath
    Will
    “Sami is the last person I want to see!”

    Episode: 4, “Family” Reunion
    Written by: Tara Smith and ML Cooks

    Salem Inn
    Stami is pacing around in the real Sami’s bedroom, twirling the gun that he used to shoot Nicole. He chuckles at how he has already destroyed Sami’s relationship with her mother, and “sister”.
    Stami
    “Now I get why you pretended to be me for so long…its fun, isn’t it? Causing so much havoc as another person. And I’m so far from being done, there are so many more lives out there in Salem.”
    Stami’s cell phone then rings, and he picks it up and looks at the Caller ID, and then smirks before answering.
    Stami
    “Hello, Sami Brady here.”
    Lucas, on the other line
    “Hey, Sami…its me, Lucas. I’ve…got some news… “
    Stami
    “What is it, Lucas? “
    Lucas
    “Will’s back in town. “
    Stami, looking at Sami and faking a concerned tone
    “Who is that?“
    Lucas
    “What the hell are you talking about? Your son!“
    Stami
    “WHAT?! My son…he’s back?!?!!? Oh, is he okay? Where are you??? “
    Lucas
    “The Spears Mansion. “
    Stami
    “I’ll be over right away! “
    Stami hangs up the phone, and then maniacally laughs at this while Sami continues to watch in astonishment and horror.
    Stami
    “Oh, this is perfect timing! Think about all I can do to your ex, and your own son… “
    Stami waves at her as he turns to leave…

    Salem University Hospital
    Marlena walks into her catatonic husband’s room, Roman Brady formerly known as John Black, and looks at him, seeing that he still has not moved or even budged since December of last year. She sheds a few tears as she sits down and strokes his cheek.
    Marlena
    “Oh Roman, I’m so sorry I haven’t visited you lately. I’ve been far too busy with Kristen, Tony, and my new daughter: Nicole Walker. I think I’ve mentioned her to you already, but she got shot this evening while at a fashion show. She’s alive, but I’m so worried, because now someone is on the run who shot my own daughter, and who knows how this might affect Nicole. And Sami, my firstborn daughter, can’t even act mature! She will never stop fighting with me, I guess I should have gotten used to it by now. But my life has felt like its in Hell ever since you got shot…I am just so tired of it Roman. Everyone practically plays with me, and I have to stop it. Its time for me to step up and take charge of my life, and not let other’s stomp all over me. “

    In Nicole’s hospital room, Greta sits at her bedside, looking on in disgust. She looks at all the machines attached to Nicole, and twirls the cords around her finger for a moment.
    Greta
    “This is probably how my mother looked before she died…that was one of the reasons I came back here. I found out Hope Brady did it. Hope Williams Brady of all people killed my mother, but I’ll deal with her later, if she ever even returns to Salem. “
    Nicole keeps slipping in and out of consciousness, but keeps her eyes locked onto Greta, and Greta wonders if she’s fallen back into a coma.
    Greta, leaning in to whisper in Nicole’s ear
    “You know, with how much I hate you…I really could kill you right now. I could pull the plug, you could go out exactly like my mother did. I believe Sami Brady almost pulled the plug on you in a situation similar to this years ago, right? Maybe I could deliver the final punch to the great Nicole Walker Roberts Kiriakis…after all you’ve done to me, how you tortured me and Eric, and so many other people in this town… “
    Greta leans in to almost pull the plug on Nicole, however she hears voices, and quickly darts up and runs out of Nicole’s room as a few nurses walk in.
    Greta
    “Looks like I’ll have to come back later…sweet dreams, Nicole. “

    Spears Mansion
    Jan is sitting in the living room, sighing at Lucas and Will’s constant fighting on the back patio, and hears the doorbell ring.
    Jan
    “Oh please, who now… “
    Jan gets up, and goes to answer the door, only to see Stami standing outside.
    Stami
    “Ahhh, Janet. How nice to see you again. “
    Jan
    “I wish I could say the same to you. I guess you’re here to pick up your rotten son?”
    Stami
    “My poor little boy, who’s been gone for months with no contact to me or Lucas, is just getting back and you are already bashing him? Heartless bitch. “
    Jan
    “He’s already taken a few pitiful stabs at me, and him and Lucas have been constantly fighting ever since he barged in here! Who knows how dangerous he is now. “
    Stami, grabbing Jan by the neck
    “Don’t you EVER speak about Will like that, do you understand? Now move. “
    Stami shoves Jan out of the way, and rushes out to the back porch to see Will and Lucas while Jan scowls.
    Once out on the patio, Will and Lucas both turn to see Stami.
    Will
    “Mom So you actually decided to come?”
    Stami
    “Of course I did! You’re my son! And you’ve been freaking gone for months, where have you been?! “
    Will
    “You two can’t get that question out of your heads, can’t you? Dad’s been asking me all night, too.”
    Stami
    “Well, I’d think we would have a right to know, and I want to know NOW! “
    Will
    “Don’t be so pushy! I don’t think I ever knew you two could act like such morons so fast.”
    Lucas
    “You don’t talk to us like that! We are your parents, and we want to at least know what you’ve been doing while you were out running around. Obviously, there’s something you don’t want to tell us. Are you doing drugs or something like that? Just get out with it! “
    Will
    “NO! I’d never touch that stuff! “
    Stami, thinking to himself
    “This is so perfect…another part of Sami’s little family is soon going to be torn apart, because I think these two are about to rip into each other…literally! “
    Lucas
    “Then what is it? What are you keeping from your mother and me?!?! “
    Will
    “Don’t act like you care now. I’ve been taking care of myself for the past two years and I’ll continue to do so.”
    Lucas
    “I am not going to play this game any more.”
    Stami turns Will around and back hands him a few times. Lucas and Jan alike are stunned and outrage at Sami’s brutality on her son!

    Episode#251: Abe’s Fate

    -At the Cheatin’ Heart, Kristen wonders how to respond to Bo’s question and flashes back to how Marlena’s twin, Sam, broke her out of the dungeon at the Sultan’s and both of them returned to Salem and tried to kill Marlena before getting thrown in jail. Kristen sighs and tells Bo that she won’t lie to him, and that early last year she came back to Salem only to kill Marlena Evans.

    -Marlena sits down with Nicole and Tony, and tells Tony she is so glad how he’s out of jail now, and hopefully soon Kristen will forgive him. Tony shakes his head and says that now that Stefano’s back, Kristen will go right back under his web and will definitely never forgive him. Marlena’s eyes widen and she looks at Tony in shock before saying:

    Marlena:Stefano is…alive?!
    Nicole: Damn. Hell, why are we all surprised? He comes back to life once a year…
    Marlena: No no no…the man who SHOT my husband is back, alive, and not in jail?!!?! I won’t let him get away with it this time. Roman might not ever be able to move or speak again because of that bastard. I’m sorry, Tony, Nicole, but we’re going to have to cut our lunch short.

    Marlena gets up and stomps off, as Tony tries to chase after her, while a smirk forms on Nicole’s face. She whispers to herself now that her new grandpa is back, she’ll finally get her fair share of the DiMera loot.

    -At Titan, Vivian walks in in a huff and stomps right up to Alexis’s desk. Alexis looks at Vivian with a raised eyebrow and asks if she can help her, and Vivian snaps that she needs to see Victor NOW! Alexis tells Vivian that she’s sorry but Mr.Kiriakis is a bit busy right now, speaking to some business associates. Vivian shouts that she doesn’t care, and walks right past Alexis and barges into Victor’s office!

    -Celeste holds Lexie as Lexie even shakes slightly, and Maggie begs her nephew to tell her whats happened to Abe. Mike tells everyone to just calm down as he clutches Maggie’s hand, and says that Abe is alive…but all of this drama has caused him to suffer a stroke. Celeste mutters “Oh no…” as she continues to hold Lexie, while Maggie screams:

    Maggie: NOOOOO!!!!!!

    *Life in Salem Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo2A7rZhZGA *

    -Lucas tells Jan he’s not necessarily buying into it, just wondering if Anna knows something that they don’t. Jan laughs and states that Anna is crazy, and Lucas tells her that at first he thought that but too much has happened to not make him wonder something. He points out that first she acted all weird with Jan when she was doing her hair, then Tony and Anna suddenly break up when Nicole is revealed to be Tony and Marlena’s missing child, and now Anna is telling them that Nicole is something to worry about. Jan says:

    Jan: Oh please, Nicole can’t hurt us. Believe me, I have stuff against Nicole that you wouldn’t believe.

    -Bo comments to Kristen that he did hear about that, with Marlena being his sister-in-law and all. Kristen nods and says that she got thrown in jail with partner-in-crime Sam, and once she got out and came back to Salem again she found out Tony was alive, her father was in a coma, and John Black was really Roman Brady and in a catatonic state. She goes on to explain that the thought of wreaking havoc on Marlena yet again came to mind, and then says:

    Kristen:But…then…
    Bo: What is it, Kristen? Ah…wait, I see.
    Kristen:Yeah…that…happened…and now the thought of revenge on Marlena is the last thing on my mind.
    Bo:Its probably a good thing, because you and Marlena don’t need anymore crap to deal with. None of us do. My brother still hasn’t moved a muscle, and now Marlena has this hidden child with Tony…Nicole Walker, I think.
    Kristen:Oh, how the hell they have a child is beyond me.
    Bo:Yeah, but its possible. Somehow my child with Billie, who we both thought died, was alive and well. But then again, sometimes these mysterious kids might not actually be your kids. Megan, your sister, tried to pass a little boy off as mine many years ago.
    Kristen:Megan? I don’t know her real well but she seems nuts. I mean at the meeting today she was using a butcher knife on her nails-
    Bo:Meeting? What meeting?
    Kristen:Uhh…I mean…um, I think I slipped up on something I wasn’t supposed to mention.

    -Marlena marches towards the DiMera Mansion with Tony trying to catch up to her, and he yells to her that she can’t do this. Marlena stops for a moment and tells Tony that this is the man that tortured her, her husband, and so many others numerous times, she has to confront him especially after he faked his whole death and shot her husband yet again. Tony puts his hands on her shoulders, and says that he doesn’t like Stefano anymore than her, but he has power, and he could harm even more people quicker if she does it this way.

    -Victor is in his office with his nephew, Justin, and both of them look to see Vivian standing in the doorway, angry. Justin asks who she is, and Victor simply replies that she is an unwanted visitor. He orders Vivian to get out and never come back, but she tells him not a chance, and that she’s been kicked out of Alamain. Victor laughs and says:

    Victor:Oh Vivian, you are finally getting what you deserve. Don’t come crying to me about it.
    Vivian:I want revenge, Victor! I want Forrest, Nicholas, and Valentine all to pay for this! And you are the only one who can help me now. I got nothing out of Stefano’s will, I have lost all Alamain privileges, now you are all I have left.
    Victor:[/]Wrong. I am done with you, Vivian. Give it up. You’ve lost.
    Vivian:GIVE UP?! Oh please, Victor, I am VIVIAN ALAMAIN! I *never* give up, and that’s why I want a job here, at Titan.

    -Lexie asks Mike if Abe will be able to recover from the stroke, and Mike says that its too soon to tell at this time. Maggie keeps muttering to himself that this can’t be happening and Abe is such a great man, and Mike tells all of them that they are doing whatever they can to help him. Maggie exclaims that she needs to see him, and Mike tells her that it may be too soon. Maggie shouts to Mike that she is the only friend Abe even has left, because his ex-wife has treated him horribly, Roman and Allan are gone, and so is Brandon. Mike sighs and tells her that he may be able to make an exception, and Lexie looks at them all as a few tears pour out of her eyes, and then she quickly stomps away!

    -Lucas raises his eyebrow at Jan’s last comment and advises her not to go back to her old ways that he’s heard so much about, and Jan laughs and tells him not to worry. As she puts an arm around Lucas she promises to him that that part of her life is over, and she’s got a child now, and him, and she doesn’t want to lose all that. Lucas nods and tells her he’s really proud of her, and that he doesn’t want her to end up like Sami. Jan again assures him that she won’t, and then says that she needs to go, and she has a lot of preparing to do for the next few days. He asks her whats going on, and she says that since she’s going to sell Spears Industries, she has to make it look good to potential buyers at a fashion show right here in Salem in a few days.

    -Bo asks Kristen what she’s talking about, and she says she really shouldn’t tell him, and gets up to leave but he gently grabs her arm and asks her whats wrong, and she pulls away and lies that she should go, and quickly runs off, not wanting to reveal to Bo that her father is alive and well. Bo sighs as she runs off, and comments how there are so many odd people in Salem these days, and continues to think about Hope.

    -Marlena tells Tony that she supposes that he is right, however she does say that she does NOT want that man running around Salem, and Tony agrees. He says however that she should focus on her family and friends, and not the drama for once. Marlena says that that is true, and she wants to grow close to all her daughters again, especially Sami and Nicole. Marlena is silent for a moment before asking Tony if he still has control over the DiMera family business, and Tony says that while it hasn’t been too active in recent years, he has been trying to get it back on its feet lately, and it will be one of the companies at a fashion show in several days. Marlena then asks:

    Marlena:Do you think…you could give Sami and Nicole jobs there? They are both relatively experienced in the fashion area, and if your business is involved in that…they could be useful there, and it may help us all get closer.
    Tony:I may be able to arrange something, although I am not sure how long I will be in control because of Stefano. But I will definitely see what I can do.
    Marlena:Oh Tony, thank you so much!
    Tony:Anything for you.

    -As Justin watches the argumentative exchange between Victor and Vivian, Victor stands up angrily and tells her that she will NEVER join Titan. Vivian snorts and says that she has so much business experience, and she has been inside Alamain before, she knows everything about them. Victor tells her he needs no help against Alamain, it’s a company that is about to fall apart and also about to become his. Vivian tells him to not underestimate Forrest, Nicholas, and Valentine and that they could throw something else out there at the last minute. Victor scowls and says:

    Victor:Fine, Vivian, if you really want in, be at the fashion show in the coming days. Its going to be huge for everyone, and there we will see if you are Titan material.
    Vivian:Oh, I am. And I’ll prove it.

    Vivian laughs as she turns and walks out of Victor’s office as Justin looks on in shock, and asks Victor what that was. Victor explains to Justin that Vivian is his crazy ex-wife, who is nothing but a gold-digger. Justin tells him that if that’s the case then they shouldn’t let her into the company, and Victor answers:

    Victor:I am not actually going to let her into MY company! Her being at the fashion show was nothing but to get her off my plate. There, I will just flick her off like the roach that she is.
    Justin:So, why don’t you explain some of the details about this fashion show?
    Victor:It will be where Bella Magazine officially relaunches, and also some of our other competitors will be there. It will be an important day for everyone, especially Titan. We will also want to keep our eye on what Alamain does there for buyout purposes, and the DiMeras and Spears Industries will also be there. And probably others, but Alamain is the main one we’ll want to keep our eye on. Bear in mind, Justin: They are all ruthless. While their company is dying, they are still no laughing matter.

    -Lexie barges out onto the balcony outside the waiting room of the hospital, and Peter follows while Celeste tries to get ahold of herself inside and watches her daughter, worried for her. Peter asks Lexie if she’s alright, and Lexie tells him she’ll be fine. Peter asks if she’s sure, and Lexie tells him to just go away, and she doesn’t really want to speak to anyone right now, but Peter disagrees and then says that she needs someone to talk to. Lexie says:

    Lexie:Oh please, do you think I would want to talk to the people who caused my son’s own father to have a stroke in the first place?
    Peter:Excuse me? You are blaming me for this?!
    Lexie:You and Elvis. You two manipulated that judge into giving custody to me, and this is what has happened! I should have never trusted you two! In fact, its probably my fault for even letting you help me!!!
    Peter:But this is what you wanted, isn’t it?! You have showed us all so many times in this past month how much you hate Abe! Why should you care?
    Lexie:I may not love him anymore, but I still did once! And he fathered my one and only son! And if you think that I wanted THIS, you’re a damn fool!
    Peter:Listen, Lexie, I’m sorry. Maybe I was being a little insensitive there but I don’t take back helping you get your son. It was needed, and don’t start going back into that goody goody mood again. That already has happened too many times.
    Lexie:Oh Peter, you think this is going to make me into the perfect saint again? If so, you’re wrong. In fact, after THIS, I doubt I will ever be that person I was all those years ago again!
    Peter:Well I-
    Lexie:Enough from you. Now get out.

    Peter sighs as he turns away from Lexie and back into the hospital as she stares out into the Salem sky…

    Downtown Salem
    5th Circuit Court
    Abe, Lexie, Peter, Maggie, Celeste and Mr. Ji Min Kim all await anxiously to hear Judge Fitzpatrick’s decision
    “In the matter of custody of The Carver, I hereby grant sole custody to Alexandra Brooks.”
    Abe and Maggie are absolutely astonished. A slow smile appears on Lexie’s face as the words from the judge slowly sink in. Peter looks at his sister and smiles.
    “I told you everything would work out”
    Then Abe stands up and looks at Lexie with rage burning in his eyes. He is shell hocked that he has lost his son to a Dimera. He tries to speak but then coughs, grabs his chest and then collapses to the ground.

    Written by ML Cooks

    Salem Place
    Tony and Nicole are eating Rueben wraps in the court yard.
    Tony
    “You, know, it’s just so surprising finding out your are my child with Marlena. It still seems all odd to me. What ever became of your old mother Faye? I would like to talk with her.”
    Nicole, getting nervous
    “I have no idea where she is. We haven’t talked much since she last left Salem. “
    Tony continue to eat his sandwich but he can’t help the feeling something is not right. Nicole picks up on this odd silence and decides to make conversation to ease the moment.
    “It must feel great to be a free man. Where are you staying at these day?”
    Tony
    “I haven’t even got that far. I have been banned from the Dimera mansion. So I assume I will just stay in a hotel.”
    Nicole
    “Non sense. You can come and stay at my apartment. It will be great. You can tell me what it’s like to be a Dimera….. Wow I can’t believe I am a Dimera.”
    Tony
    “Yes well It’s not all cracked up to what’s it’s supposed to be. A lot of baggage comes with the Dimera name. I hope you are ready for that.”
    “Ready for what?” They hear Marlena say and they turn around and look at her.
    Tony, standing up to greet her
    “Marlena, what a lovely surprise.”
    Marlena
    “Tony, I had no idea you were released from jail.”
    Tony
    “My lawyer posted bail. Your just in time, Nicole and I were just having lunch. You can join us, you know a little family bonding.”
    Marlena
    “I was just on my way to work but I suppose that can wait.” She take a seat with her new family at the table.
    From afar Anna is doing some shopping and sees Tony, Marlena and Nicole having a family moment.
    “Damn you Nicole. Something just doesn’t seem right about you. I thought for sure Jan was the missing Dimera child. You’re acting to smug. If only Kristen hadn’t shot me. I swear Nicole altered the DNA test some how.” Anna turns around only to run into Jan and Lucas.
    Anna
    “Oh, pardon me.”
    Jan
    “Oh no, it’s crazy Anna. Don’t you touch me again. I want you to stay the hell away from me and my baby.”
    Anna
    “I’m not going to do anything stupid Jan.” Looking at Lucas, “How are you Lucas?”
    Lucas
    “I’m great Anna thanks for asking.”
    Jan
    “Well we must be going.”
    Anna
    “No wait, Jan, can I ask you something?”
    Jan
    “Hurry up Anna. I don’t have all day. My child is hungry.”
    Anna
    “Have you ever wondered about your real parents or tried looking for them?”
    Jan
    “Why does that matter to you? That’s none of your business. My parents are dead and gone.”
    Anna
    “Jan you’re so sad. If I were you, I would keep my eye on Nicole. She’s your enemy, not me.” Anna then walks off.
    Jan wonders what Anna means
    “She’s gets crazier every time I see her. She really is a lonely sole.”
    Lucas
    “I don’t know Jan. Maybe this is happening for a reason.”
    Jan
    “Don’t tell me you’re buying into Anna’s craziness?”

    Bo is sitting at the bar, drinking beer as Kristen walks in and sits next to him at the bar
    Bo
    “Wow, I would never imagine you in a place like this.”
    Kristen
    “I wanted a change of scenery Mr. Officer. Are you drinking on duty?’
    Bo
    “No actually, I am taking some time off.”
    Kristen, ordering a beer
    “I everything ok?”
    Bo
    “I am sure you have heard Hope is on the run.”
    Kristen
    “I’ve heard a lot about Hope. Some of it is very disturbing.”
    Bo
    “Well I am sure what you’ve heard is true. Yes Hope is a murderer and yes she is smoking crack.”
    Kristen
    “Wow. I am flabbergasted. Hope must really be going through a lot.”
    Bo
    “We all are.’
    Kristen
    “You can say that again. Good old Salem. A place for never ending drama.”
    Bo
    “Now I can drink to that.” He says turning to her to toast beer bottles with hers.
    Bo
    “So how you holding up? I hear Count is out of jail.”
    Kristen
    “If you don’t mind I don’t want to talk about that bastard.”
    Bo
    “Come on Kristen. We both are dealing with some pretty horrible stuff right now. Everyone needs someone to talk to.”
    Kristen
    “I have never known you to be so willing to talk to a Dimera.”
    Bo
    “I am probably drunk. And besides, what Tony did to you was horrible. “
    Kristen
    “Yes it was. Marlena has really been helping through all of it.”
    Bo
    “Marlena? Wow. Strange things do happen.”
    Kristen
    “You could say that. Who would have guessed it, me and Marlena friends after all these years.”
    Bo
    “It is hard to believe after everything you did to keep her from John.”
    Kristen
    “You’re right but that was in the past. I am a different person now.”
    Bo
    “Really, well let me ask you something, why did you come back to Salem Kristen?”


    Some where in Salem, in an undisclosed location,
    Steve is tied up to a chair as Helena walks in with a glass of champagne in her hand.
    Steve
    “You think this is real funny huh? Celebrating you tying me up. You’ll never get away with this.”
    Helena
    “Yes I will deary. Stefan is already fooling Kayla. She has no idea I switched you two and she never will.”
    Steve
    “You have to let this vendetta go. It won’t bring EJ back. You’ll gain nothing by doing this.”
    Helena
    “It’s for revenge my dear. Eye for an Eye. You killed my son and now it’s time for the big pay back. “
    Steve
    “Leave Kayla out of this. She has done nothing. You got me. I’m right here. Leave Kayla out of this.”
    Helena
    “Oh just like EJ did nothing. You killed my son and now I am going to kill your family. And you are going to have a front row seat to all the exciting drama. Stefan is installing secret camera’s all over the hotel suite you used to share with her. In fact he should be here any minute.” And just as she says that, Stefan enters the room and Steve feels very uneasy at the uncanny resemblance Stefan has of him. He can now see how Stefan would be able to fool Kayla.
    “You Bastard. You better not touch my wife. I’ll kill you.”
    Stefan
    “Keep dreaming. You know Steve, I can really see why you are so protective of Beautiful Kayla. She’s got nice soft and sweet lips. Nice radiant skin. And she called out my name over and over again. “ Steve stands up in a rage and breaks free of the ropes that tied him down to the chair and goes after Stefan, choking him.

    LIFE IN SALEM TO LAUNCH SPIN-OFF/MINISERIES THIS SUMMER!

    As LIS enters an intense May Sweeps, a huge announcement breaks! It can now be revealed that Life in Salem, which has been rather quiet lately, will soon split off into a spinoff/mini-series this summer! It will follow several characters already on LIS(who leave the original soap for the spinoff), and also some characters from Salem's past. It shall be used to tell a story too huge to tell on LIS, and to help trim down the bloated cast. A major event on LIS, a turning point for one of its hugest stories, will kick it off very soon! So don't expect to wait too long for it!

    "ML(Co-EP/HW) and I think it will be great," Co-EP/HW Tara Smith comments "While we have managed to maintain many huge stories on LIS the past several months, there is more we want to do that we can't do on one soap with such a huge cast. While LIS does have a bit of balance, we think it needs more. This spin-off should really help that, and it will be focused on one big storyline, like a story arc in a sense."

    It has already been confirmed that Deidre Hall(Marlena Evans), Alison Sweeney(Sami/Stan "Stami"), Arianne Zuker(Nicole Walker), LeAnn Hunley(Anna DiMera), Thad Luckinbill(Jeremy Horton), Bree Williamson(Alexis Kefer), Michael T. Weiss(Mike Horton), with an occasional appearance from Dan Wells(Stan), will all leave LIS to star in the mini-series, however a few of them may make some appearances on LIS from time to time(and vice-versa). Also, Thaao Penghlis(Tony DiMera) shall continue to be on contract status on LIS but also on the spin-off.

    However, for now, this is all the news on the spin-off that could be revealed! Keep an eye out for the full cast list, the premeire of the spinoff, and its name!

    In other LIS-related news, Missy Elliot(Suga), Gregg Marx(David Banning), and Ashley Benson(Abby) have all exited the cast, as Elliot and Marx's short runs have come to an end. But the door is always open for any of these to return!

    Elvis
    “My god, how on earth you get your medical degree is beyond me.”
    Stefano
    “Alexandra darling, it’s time this family takes it’s rightful place in Salem. All of my children are here. And now it’s time for us to take over Salem.”
    Lexie
    “I am trying to get my son back. I don’t want any part of this.”
    Stefano
    “It’s too late darling. You are already involved. You kept this secret of me being down here.”
    Lexie
    “No father. I can’t do this.”
    Stefano
    “Alexandra, you are my daughter. You have my blood running through your veins. Please don’t turn your back on me now. I need you. “
    Renee
    “Lexie please. Join us in the Dimera Dynasty. Take your place.”
    Lexie
    “This is too much.”
    Elvis
    “No it’s not. You’ve shown your Dimera roots once before. Baby JT ring a bell.”
    Stefano
    “Enough with this. I need the three of you to get all my children together. I want to see everyone together. I have never seen all my kids together in one place.”
    Renee
    “Will do father.” She says leaving with Elvis. Lexie stays behind
    Stefano looks into his daughter’s eyes
    “Alexandra please, I need you now more than ever. Don’t turn your back on your family. We can help you get Theo. Soon we will take over Salem. Will you be a part of this? Are you going to join in on the Dimera Dream. Salem will be ours in no time. Are you with us?”

    “Sorry I am late sir” She says sitting down in the chair in front of his desk with pen and paper
    Victor
    “Never mind that. I need you to find me some new talent. Organize a Titan Job Fair. If Titian is going to remain successful and competitive, we need new ideas.”
    Alexis
    “I thought Justin was coming back to Salem to help with things.”
    Victor
    “He is on his way here. I don’t know what is taking so damn long.”
    Then Belle walk into Victor’s office
    Belle
    “Oh, I’m so sorry, I didn’t see anyone at the receptionist desk.”
    Victor
    “It’s alright Belle, please come in.” He stands up and gives her a hug..
    Belle
    “I can’t believe I am going to be in a high profile fashion show. It’s such a big event. And Victor, I must say, thank you so much for having me at the center of this “Face of Bella” re launch campaign.”
    Victor
    “I couldn’t imagine anyone else in the role you’re in. I have every faith in you won’t let me down. Alexis here will take you upstairs to get fitted for the show pieces.”
    Belle
    “It’s every girl’s dream come true to be a model and try on fabulous designer clothes.” Belle walks out of Victor’s office with Alexis. Victor sits back down in his chair and begins to look over Philips’ court transcripts. He picks up the phone
    “Get me Ji Min Kim over here.” Just as he says that, his nephew, Justin Kirakis walk in his office.

    The Dimera Mansion,
    Living Room
    Stefano sits back in his wheel chair and takes in the sight of all his children in one place, one room at the same time, (Coughing a little)
    “I don’t think I ever experienced this before. All my Children together in one room.” He says with a tear running down his face. He looks around and sees, Lexie, Peter, Kristen, Megan, Elvis and Renee.
    “Where’s Anthony? Where’s Tony?”
    Peter
    “Father, A lot has happened since you have been in a coma.”
    Stefano
    “What are you talking about? What happened to Tony?”
    Kristen begins to have tears form in here eyes. Peter holds her as Lexie walks over to her father and holds him.
    “Somebody please tell me what is going on here?”
    Lexie
    “Tony is ok father, it’s just,…..”
    “I raped Kristen” Everyone hear Tony’s voice from the entrance and are shocked to see him in the flesh.
    “I raped my own sister.” Everyone in the room is stunned at the shocking revelation.

    Alamain Building
    Nicholas walks into Forrest’s office with some papers in his hand.
    “Have you seen the latest numbers?”
    Forrest
    “I’ve seen them. I am trying not to think about them.”
    Nicholas
    “We have to do something. We are almost bankrupt.”
    Forrest throw’s his ink pen down in frustration.
    “Something has to be done”
    Nicholas
    “Yes it does. Did you know Victor Kiarkis is trying a hostel take over of our company?”
    Forrest
    “Does the board know about this?”
    Nicholas
    “Yes they do and from what I hear, they are seriously considering it.”
    Forrest
    “Of all times why now? Well it doesn’t matter anyway. They don’t have enough votes.”
    Nicholas
    “They will if Aunt Vivian sides with the take over. You know she is in love with Victor.”
    Forrest
    “Well we have to do what we should have done a long time ago.”
    Nicholas
    “Get Vivian out?”
    Forrest
    “She’s the loose cannon. She already knows I want her out so she could side with the hostile take over and have us kicked out intead.”
    Nicholas
    “Than it must be done. Vivian Alamain has to leave this company.”
    Valentine walks in on that last comment and smiles
    “Such beautiful music to my ears. My sister getting the boot from Alamain.”
    Forrest
    “I just had an idea. Valentine, you and Vivian don’t get along, you can help us out her from the board and we can seat you on the board and block the vote for a Kirakis take over.”
    Valentine
    “It will be my pleasure to help take out my old sister from this company”

    Back at the Dimera Mansion
    Peter tries to rush toward Tony and attack him but Kristen and Elvis hold him back.
    Stefano
    “You did what?”
    Renee
    “Tony had a split personality named Vince. Vince raped Kristen father.”
    Stefano is stunned with tears forming in his eyes
    “Dear God! This is madness. I wake up from a coma and the first thing I have to hear is that my son raped his own sister.” He looks over at Kristen
    “My poor girl.” Kristen walks over to him and holds her father.
    Lexie
    “How did you get out of jail?”
    Tony
    “Our good lawyer, Ji Min Kim.”
    Peter
    “I am going to kill you Anthony! Let go of me!” He says trying to break out of Elvis’s firm grip
    Stefano
    “I can’t even look at you. Get the hell out of this house. You are upsetting my family.”
    Tony
    “SO I am no longer part of this family?”
    Stefano
    “Get out now before I call security. Where is Bart?”
    Tony
    “No need to father. I am leaving.”
    Peter
    “And don’t you ever come back. I better never see you in the streets. It’s going to be me and you Count!”

    “Good luck with that. Just make sure you keep your jungle madness under control.’
    Peter
    “Son of a Bitch!”
    Tony
    “Ta Ta.” He says leaving the mansion.
    Stefano looks into Kristen’s eyes
    “I am so sorry darling. Are you ok?”
    Kristen
    “It’s been a little hard but Marlena is helping me through it.”
    Stefano
    “Marlena? Your nemesis? The woman you held hostage in the secret room?”
    Kristen
    “I know it’s pretty crazy. But it’ true. Marlena and I,….I guess we have buried the hatchet. She is counseling me through this hard time. I would not be here today with out her.”
    Stefano
    “My god. Everyone is full of surprises. I won‘t be drinking any Salem water indeed. Because something strange is in it.”
    Lexie, interrupting and looking at her watch
    “Sorry but I have to go. I have to get back to court.”
    Stefano
    “Court? Alexandra darling what is going on?”
    Lexie, hugging her father
    “I am sure Renee will fill you in.“ She says rushing out.
    Stefano
    “Well Renee what the hell is going on? Why is your sister running off to court?”
    Renee
    “Abe is divorcing Lexie and suing for sole custody of Theo.”
    Stefano
    “This is madness.”
    Peter, calming down
    “It’s ok father. Elvis and I are working on it. We have everything under control. In fact I need to get back to court too.” He says hugging Stefano and then leaving.
    Stefano
    “Are there any more surprises? Wait minute something isn’t right here.” He looks around and sees Megan sitting in a corner by her self, cleaning her nails with a butcher knife.
    Stefano
    “Megan, what are you doing?”
    Megan
    “How nice of you to finally acknowledge I am here.”
    Stefano
    “What are you talking about?”
    Megan
    “Enough with the family reunion. I have a taste for blood. I am ready to take over Salem. I am ready to kill. Let’s get the show on the road” Everyone looks at her.

    Midtown Salem,
    Salem Place Apartments
    Nicole gets a knock on her door. She puts her magazine down and gets up to answer. To her complete surprise, she sees her “father” Tony
    Tony
    “I hope I am not intruding.”
    Nicole
    “Not at all. You’re my dad for goodness sake. Please come in.”
    Tony walks in his daughter’s apartment and looks around.
    Nicole
    “I am surprised to see you out of jail.”
    Tony
    “Do you think I should be behind bars for being a rapist?”
    Nicole
    “Oh no, it’s not that. I didn’t think you would be out so soon. I am glad you are out” She gives him a hug.
    Tony
    “I thought we could go out and grab a bite to eat. Get to know one another more.”
    Nicole
    “That’s a great idea dad.” Nicole grabs her purse and follows Tony out her apartment. She thinks to herself "I hope we talk about how much money I am going to be getting”

    Downtown Salem,
    5th Circuit Court
    Judge Fitzpatrick walks into the courtroom
    “You may be all seated.’
    Lexie, Abe, Celeste, Maggie, Ji Min Kim and Peter Blake take their seats.
    Judge
    “I have had some time to review all the facts and I have come to some decisions’ regarding the matter of divorce and custody of Theo Carver. Now in the matter of divorce. I hereby grant the request and it is so ordered. Abe Carver is entitled to the house. And since both of you of work and make a decent amount of income, no other matters pertaining to money are needed to be discussed.”
    Abe and Lexie both nod their heads in agreement as the Judge continues
    “Now in the matter of Theo Carver.”
    Lexie and Abe both take a deep breath, each hoping the judge rules their way. Peter looks deeply into the Judge’s eyes, trying to intimidate her based on his and Elvis's bribe of the judge
    “In the matter of custody of The Carver, I hereby grant sole custody to...”

    Abe
    “Lexie you have gone mad!”
    Celeste, running over toward them
    “What on earth is going?”
    Maggie
    “You’re insane daughter just attacked me. This is even more proof she’s unfit to raise Theo.”
    Lexie
    “You don’t know anything about me Maggie. This is between me and my family.”
    Maggie
    “What family? Abe is divorcing you and your going to lose the right to see your son.”
    Celeste
    “Maggie I am asking politely to stay out of this. This has nothing to do with you.”
    Abe
    “Everyone just calm down. There is no point in fighting.”
    Lexie
    “You just tell your new lover to stay the hell away from me.”
    Maggie
    “I know a lot about you Lexie. I’ve known you years. You have Dimera blood in your veins and you can thank your mother for that.”
    Celeste
    “I’ve had enough.” Celeste grabs her daughters’ arm and drags Lexie away from the scene. Abe shakes his head in disbelief.
    “I can’t believe this is happening.”
    Maggie
    “I am so sorry Abe” She hugs him.
    As Celeste and Lexie walk off Lexie turns back around to see Maggie holding Abe. She has a tear run down her face as the pain in her part grows stronger.
    “Look at him mom. He’s already moved on, With Maggie Horton nonetheless. He wants to raise Theo with Maggie.”
    Celeste hold her daughter
    “Just have faith my darling. The judge still has to rule.”
    Lexie
    “I don’t care what that judge says, I will die first before Maggie raises my son. It’s not going to happen.” Celeste looks into her daughter’s cold empty eyes. She realizes she’s seen that cold empty stare once before, she saw the chilling look in the eyes of Stefano Dimera

    In an underground bunker that sits underneath The Dimera Mansion. Elvis and Renee look at their father, laying on the hospital bed sleeping peacefully.
    Renee
    “Has he opened his eyes again?”
    Elvis
    “No. Lexie says it could have beeen a nerve reflex or something. But in any case I have been watching him closely, and with the camera’s on him 24/7, there is no way we are going to miss anything that happens.”
    Renee
    “I really hope father wakes up soon. It’s time to take over Salem. The time is so right. Everything is so ripe to cause mayhem in Salem.”
    Elvis
    “You’re right. The family is reunited once again, You me, Peter, Kristen, and Tony.”
    Renee
    “Don’t forget about Megan?”
    Elvis
    “Right, who can forget Megan. The creepiest Dimera of them all. She’s even more freakier that Tony and or Andre and or Vince. Whom ever he chooses to be that particular week.”
    Renee
    “She’s not all that bad. And don‘t make jokes about Tony. He had a split personality named Vince and Andre took over Tony‘s life you jack ass.”

    “Oh stop that. We don’t have time for silly games like that. We are on a mission. Lexie should be here soon from court date to check on father.” Then Stefano coughs and open’s his eyes!


    The Police Station,
    Holding Cells
    Julie is pacing around in her cell, still fuming over her argue ment with Jan Spears.
    Tony
    “You’re going to have a heart attack with all this walking around you’re doing.’
    Julie
    “I’m angry. I can’t believe I’m in jail, Hope is on the run and Jan Spear’s thinks she can talk to me any way she feels. We’ll see who has the last laugh.”
    Tony
    “Well would you look at that.”
    Julie
    “At what?”
    Tony
    “I haven’t seen this feisty side of you since my father desired you years ago Was that in the seventies? “
    Julie
    “Don’t get the wrong impression. I am not that same woman. Jan is an unfit mother and I am going to prove that. Plain and simple. So please don’t read nothing more into it.”
    Tony
    “Call it what you will.”
    Then Jim Min Kim walks up to their cell
    “Mr. Dimera?”
    Tony
    “Mr. Kim, how nice of you to stop by. It’s about damn time.”
    Ji Min
    “I’m sorry sir. I got caught up in court with your sister.”
    Tony
    “Kristen?”
    Ji Min
    “No Lexie. Abe is trying to divorce her and take sole custody of Theo.”
    Then a guard comers over and unlocks the cell
    “You’re free to go Mr. Dimera.”
    Tony grins as he walks out the cell. He looks back at Julie
    “Ta Ta dear.” He says and walks off with his lawyer.



    On the outskirts of Salem,
    Victor is seated in a waiting room in side a State Prison.
    His son Philip is escorted in.
    Philip
    “Look at who finally decided to show up.”
    Victor
    “I was ill. Sorry I could not be down here sooner. How are you holding up?”
    Philip
    “As well as an inmate could do I guess. Do you know when I am getting out of here?”
    Victor
    “Maybe another 3 to 6 months. I am doing my best here. You kidnapped Belle for God’s sake. What more do you want me to do?”
    Philip
    “Alright dad I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to get you so upset. I am going insane in here. Eating this crappy food. And homo’s making passes at me.”
    Victor
    “Give me more time son. That’s why I came to see you. I am restoring the Kirakis name and empire.”
    Philip
    “Well how can I help do that if I am behind bars?”
    Victor
    “Well I am bringing your cousin Justin here to town to help with things.”
    Philip
    “Justin, I thought he was in a retirement home? I see what’s going to happen. Your going to replace your own son with your wacky nephew. You’re going to let me rot in here forever.”
    Victor
    “No one asked you to kidnap Belle. That was the most absurd stunt you could have pulled. Don’t blame me for your mistakes. You made a mess of things. You are my son and no one will ever replace you. How dare you insult me like that.” Victor says standing up, getting ready to leave
    Philip, standing up as well
    “Dad wait, I’m sorry.” Victor will not have it as he coldly walks out of the holding area without saying a word to his son. Philip is heartbroken that his dad walked out on him. He begins to feel guilty over the things he just said to his father.


    Evening falls in Salem,
    Chez Rouge
    Jeremy and Alexis are seated at a table.
    Jeremy
    “Again I must say you look stunning tonight.”
    Alexis, smiling at the flattery
    “Thank you, I know.”
    Jeremy, chuckling
    “Well you sure are assertive.”
    Alexis
    “Am I too much woman for you?”
    Jeremy
    “Never.”
    Alexis
    “I don’t know about. I am like no other woman out there.”
    Jeremy
    “Oh yea, and what is that supposed to mean.”
    Alexis
    “Well you know what science says, we all have our own identity. So I am unlike any other woman out there.”
    Jeremy
    “Ha, Ha, real funny, that was so lame.”
    Alexis
    “Whatever. But you liked it though.”
    Jeremy
    “Maybe I did.” He says with a seductive smile. The waiter brings over two glasses of champagne and they sip on it, looking into each other’s eyes flirtatiously.


    In the bunker under The Dimera Mansion,
    Lexie is shocked when she walks in and sees her father, sitting up on the side of the bed.
    “Oh my God, Father!” She says rushing over to his side. She then looks at her siblings, Renee and Elvis.
    Lexie
    “What the hell is going on here?”
    Renee
    “We are all surprised as you are.”
    Elvis
    “Can’t you see what’s happening you idiot? Aren’t you the doctor? Father has awoken from his coma.”
    Stefano continues to cough, but slowly regain his breath and composure. He tries to talk
    “It’s alright. Everyone calm down.”
    Lexie
    “Father, you’re doing to much. You need to rest.”
    Stefano
    “No No Alexandra my darling. I’ve rested enough. It’s time.”
    A smile appears on Elvis’s face as he knows the next words of what his father is about to say.
    Lexie
    “Time for what? I don’t understand.”
    Stefano
    “The return of Stefano Dimera and the Dimera Family.” He says with a devilish grin on his face………

    Episode#247: Justin Kiriakis

    -At the Kiriakis Mansion, Victor is working on some files for the new face of Bella Magazine and says to himself that in mere weeks, there will be a fashion show for many companies that will launch Bella Magazine at last. He thinks to himself that having Belle Black heavily involved in it should be a huge success, and Henderson walks in and asks Victor if he needs anything, and Victor says:

    Victor: Nothing right now, thank you…but there is something I do need for my business…a business partner.

    -At the Spears Mansion, Jan asks Belle what on earth they could possibly have to settle, and she says that she thought they were completely done with each other after that princess that killed Shawn died, and Belle tells her that doesn’t erase the fact that she and Shawn had a child, and she can’t let her raise it. Jan tells Belle frustrated that she is not as insane as everyone thinks, and Belle shoots back:

    Belle: Oh please, no one’s going to forget about what you did. Trying to kill Victor, kidnapping Shawn, practically brainwashing him, blackmailing Mimi for months, dressing up as a surrogant, and impregnating yourself with Shawn’s baby! No one is going to let you raise a child!
    Jan: Belle, don’t give me that load of CRAP! You only want the child out of my hands because you want to have the child with Shawn, your own COUSIN, that you never got!

    -Inside Marlena’s office at the hospital, Kristen slowly and nervously walks in. Marlena looks up and lightly smiles, and tells her to come and sit down. Kristen asks her if she’s sure about this, and she says that she at least should have seen another psychiatrist due to her and Marlena’s past. Marlena shakes her head and simply says no, and that no one can help her like she can. Kristen sighs, and sits down and asks what they do first. Marlena then says:

    Marlena: Kristen, this may be hard, but first…I need you to calmly describe the rape to me, as best you can.

    -At the courthouse, court is dismissing, and Abe and Maggie are walking out together. Maggie asks Abe why he looks so worried, and he says that its how Judge Fitzpatrick ended the custody trial just like that, and it makes him wonder if something is wrong…or if she is having a hard time deciding. Maggie tells him that that’s the case in all custody trials no matter how bad the other parent is, and she’s sure in the end he’ll get custody of Theo. Lexie is walking by and says she doubts that will happen, and snaps to Abe that she WILL come out fighting in the next trial, and Maggie then says:

    Maggie: Oh, honey, I doubt that will happen.

    *Life in Salem Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo2A7rZhZGA *

    -Henderson comments that he thought he liked working without as many partners as businesses like Alamain has, and Victor tells him that’s true, but he needs someone trusted by his side, and Belle is only a model and Alexis is just his secretary. Henderson tells him that he hasn’t had many allies in his life aside from henchman, and Victor says that there has to be someone out there, and then he also says:

    Victor: Someone like…someone like Justin Kiriakis.

    -Belle tells Jan to NEVER say that to her, and Jan tells Belle that she’s going to tell her whats true. She yells to Belle that no matter what she’ll just never get over Shawn, whether he’s her cousin and she has a child with another man, and is dating or marrying some guy, she will still be head over heels for Shawn! Belle exclaims to Jan to look who’s talking, and she had an unhealthy obsession with Shawn for years! Jan begins to boil with anger and says:

    Jan: But I got over it, and I am in a relationship with Lucas Roberts now! That disgusting love for Shawn is still in your eyes.
    Belle: You know, I am dating Nicholas Alamain. I was over Shawn…in what, 2004?! Four years ago. And thank the Lord I was because he’s my cousin. Its not like our relationship even went THAT far anyway.
    Jan: Deny it all you want, princess. But you know its true. Now get out.
    Belle: Gladly.

    Belle stomps out of the Spears Mansion and slams the door on her way out, and it causes Jan’s son to start to cry. She picks him up and calms him down, and assures him that it will all be okay…

    -Kristen looks at Marlena in shock and says “So soon?” and Marlena nods, and tells her that it will all be alright, just tell her about it the best she can. Kristen shrugs and tells her it was like any rape, and at first seems calm, but soon some tears swell up in her eyes. She says that Tony suddenly came up to her, grabbed her, and pulled her into a bedroom…she begins to breakdown as she explains that he began to lick her, kiss her in all sorts of places as she screamed for help…but it never came. Marlena holds Kristen’s hand, and tells her that he can’t hurt her anymore, and she firmly believes that it was Vince who raped her, and he’s gone now. Kristen yells:

    Kristen: I AM SICK OF HEARING ABOUT VINCE!!!! What I know is is that Tony DiMera raped me and because of him I can never go back into the real world!
    Marlena: But everything is safe now. You have Peter, your own brother. And just because Vince hurt you doesn’t mean the whole world will.
    Kristen: Marlena, I have been forsaked time and time again by the world. Everything always blew up in my face, I got locked in a dungeon for almost nine years, and then thrown in jail. Yes it was partially my fault, but once I got out my father was in a coma and I got sexually assaulted only weeks later, and then my father died!!!! How am I supposed to be able to get back into the real world after all that?!?!?!

    --Jan walks down the hallway at the Salem PD station, walking past several cells and narrows her eyes as she sees Julie in one of them with Tony. She carries her baby in a carrier and stomps right over

    Jan: Okay, dear Aunt Julie, time for us to have a little chat.
    Julie: "How dare you bring this child down here in harm's ways. Amoungst all these crimanlas. For a chat? It's already obvious you are not making wise decision's as a mother. I'll have to take matters into my own hands.
    Jan: I think you already did that. And for the record I will take my child where I damn well please. Earlier I got a visit from Bo Brady and Belle Black, and they wanted my child. Since you're locked up in a cage you decided to send your hounds after me?
    Julie: A cage? Like you caged up Shawn Brady? You're a lunatic and your past will easily convie any judge of that. I didn't have to send my family after you. They know as well as I do that you are unfit to raise this baby. We are all going to join forces and pry that baby right from your arms. And how dare you talk to me like that
    Jan: You are a TRUE criminal, Julie. And your crimes are recent, mine were years ago. How are you fit to raise a baby? Aiding your alcoholic sister in murder isn't the best thing to do. So don't preach to me, Julie Horton!
    Julie: Does Lucas know you're down here? What was the point of you even coming down here? To reassure yourself? You mut think I am a threat to you if you're making a pre emepitve strike. I got a lot of years behind my belt honey. I know every trick of every book. I am from the old school. I'll teach you a few things sweety, so grab a pen a paper, its going to be one hell of a ride. And yes I am in jail now, but I really didn't commit no crime. I was only being there for my daughter. I was lending an ear. That hardly measures up to any thing you have done. So next time try harder, reach higher before you take on a grand dame such as myself. Remeber, I am a Horton, and that name goes a long way in this town. I won't be in jail for long, and when I get out you better get your umbrella because I am going to rain on your parade.
    Jan: Oh Lord, you are in one of your high and mighty moods, aren't you? Well, quite frankly, I don't think the Hortons are so powerful. If they were, they all wouldn't have run off or DIED!
    Julie: "You little twit. How dare you speak to me that way. If these bars didn't seperate us, I'd ring your neck missy. How could you disrepsct Lucas's own family like that? He is a horton to! I will be telling Lucas what u think of our family. You don't desreve your baby and you don't Lucas. And I will personally see to it that you lose both. This is war Janet Spearmint!"
    Jan: Lucas and I have a special bond, something you can't break. Accept it, you have lost everything because of your actions, and you just can't take seeing that your foes have won the battle.
    Julie: Your a joke Janice. A complete and utter foul. Never under estimate your opponet. Your bond with Lucas will be broken over you lack of respect for our family. You can take that to that bank." Hollering out to the gaurds" Get this trah out of here!"
    Tony: Now thats enough! Jan Spears, I think it is, you have no manners! How dare you treat someone like Julie like this! If you think you will continue to tear her down you, my dear, have another thing coming
    Jan:Oh please, I don't want to get a lecture from some DiMera rapist. Heck I barely know you and I already know how much of an idiot you are to stand up for this gutter-snipe. Bye bye, losers.

    -Lexie looks at Maggie and snaps for her to mind her own business, and Maggie defensively says that this is her business. Abe warns Maggie to not get into this, but Maggie says that she’s not going to let Lexie tear him down constantly. Lexie asks Maggie how the hell she’s going to stop her, and says that Maggie has no power over her. Lexie and Peter turn to walk away, but Maggie grabs Lexie by the hair! Lexie screams in pain and turns around and punches Maggie in the face, and Maggie in anger tackles Lexie as a catfight begins!

    Episode#246: Elvis’s Scheme

    -At Alamain, Billie sighs and says that she may be rusty but she’ll help Alamain no matter what it takes. Forrest thanks her, and she says it would be sad for a family business that has stood for so many years to fall apart. Forrest tells her to blame Vivian for that, and that’s why he needs her out. Billie nods, but then says for now they can just celebrate her coming to work here. Forrest grins and says he can live with that, as they both lean in and kiss…

    -At the Spears Mansion, Jan is home from the hospital and just finished putting her baby to sleep. As she looks over its crib she smiles, and says that she hopes Shawn’s proud of her. She slowly kisses her baby on the head, and then hears the doorbell ring. She then rushes to get it, and opens it to see…Bo and Belle!

    -Helena looks at her very much alive son, STEFAN, and says that this will be such a clever scheme. She tells him that he will disguise himself as Steve, and impersonate Steve to Kayla, and slowly begin to ruin her life. Stefan nods and says he will do her bidding, and Helena takes out an eye patch and some different clothes and tells him he will need those to pass himself off as Steve, and Stefan once again nods., and takes the items and walks away with his hood back up, and Helena whispers to herself:

    Helena: Yes, it is good to have Stefan’s loyalty after so many years…despite our past, he is very useful to me…

    -At the courthouse, Judge Fitzpatrick looks at Elvis in shock and says “Excuse me?” and Elvis tells her he knows she abides by the law and this sounds very bad, but in truth its not. He tells her that Lexie has gone through so much for her son, she deserves him, and Abe hasn’t done much for the kid. Judge Fitzpatrick tells him that she has to go by evidence and this is really none of his business, and Elvis then tells her that he is willing to PAY her a huge sum of money if she agrees to his terms.

    *Life in Salem Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo2A7rZhZGA *

    -Jan asks Bo and Belle what the hell they are doing on her doorstep, and looks to Bo and asks shouldn’t he be going after his crazy wife, and comments how she heard on the news about her running off for murdering someone. Bo snaps to Jan for her to leave Hope out of this, and that he’s taking care of that. He Belle then says to Jan:

    Belle: I heard about you giving birth to your baby, Jan, and I thought it was time that you put Shawn’s child into proper hands.
    Jan: I should have known this would happen. You and Grandpa here have teamed up to take my baby. MY baby, and as I told Bo last time neither of you are going to take him away from me. So just walk away and never come back.
    Bo: We can’t do that, Jan. We just want whats best for the baby. All of us. Me, Belle, Maggie, Julie…
    Jan: Please, I heard a couple hours ago you tossed Julie in the slammer! Its where she belongs, and hopefully soon your wife will be sitting right beside her!

    -At Titan, Alexis is getting ready to leave as she packs up a few things she’s going to work on at her home, and as she finishes and begins to walk down the halls, suddenly Jeremy emerges out of the blue with flowers in his hand! Alexis is startled and tells him not to scare her like that, and Jeremy tells her that she should’ve known he’d be back. Alexis looks at the flowers and then says:

    Alexis: You are just a persistent little boy, aren’t you? You know, I may not be as…uh, eager about it as you are, but I’ll humor you and go to dinner with you. Just make sure its something nice, okay? No bar like the Cheatin’ Heart.
    Jeremy: Oh, don’t worry, hon. We’ll be going to Chez Rouge, its owned by my aunt. It certainly is above a lot of other places in Salem.
    Alexis: Chez Rouge? Last time I was there, chandeliers were flying every which way.
    Jeremy: Damn, girl, you need to get out more because that was a long long time ago. I promise you, things will be perfect this time.

    -Judge Fitzpatrick stands angrily and tells Elvis that she does NOT accept bribes, and that she should have him tried for this! Elvis tells her that he knows that she could use some extra cash, and all she’d have to do is give Lexie custody of Theo and totally extract Abe from his life. Judge Fitzpatrick says that it would take a miracle for that to happen after all that Lexie has on her record, and Elvis points out that he may be the miracle, and he takes out 10,000 dollars in cash…

    -Billie and Forrest continue to kiss inside his office, and they almost fall onto the table but Billie whispers that they shouldn’t be doing this during office hours, and Forrest responds back that they own the company, but she may have a point. As they get off of each other, Forrest suggests that they get to work on everything, and Billie agrees.

    -At the Brady Pub, Kayla is cleaning the tables and Stefan walks in…looking exactly like Steve! He walks up to her and is silent for a moment, and as she turns around she jumps and says she didn’t know he was here, and kisses him on the cheek. He replies that he just got here, and she nods and suddenly asks if he’s alright, and comments that something about him seems…off. Stefan shakes his head as he pulls her into a hug, and says that everything is just fine, now…

    -At the Spears Mansion, Bo SHOUTS to Jan again to leave Hope out of this completely, and this is just between all of them. Jan tells Bo and Belle that she would never let her child even be HELD by either of them, and that she’s not the psycho that they think she is, and she’s much smarter than they assume. She warns them that if they take her child away, then they will regret it for the rest of their lives. Bo asks if that was a threat, and Jan tells him that’s for him to figure out, and then she orders them both to get out. Stressed out with everything, Bo reluctantly agrees but tells her that things won’t stay like this for long, before he leaves. Jan looks to Belle and says “Hello?! GO!” and Belle then answers:

    Belle: No, Jan, I’m not going anywhere until we settle this.

    -Judge Fitzpatrick looks at Elvis in shock and asks him where he got that kind of money, in cash nonetheless, and Elvis simply says that he’s part of a powerful family, and this isn’t all that he has for her if he simply agrees to his terms, and Judge Fitzpatrick is silent for a moment, and Elvis smiles and says that she’s complementing it and then mutters “Excellent.”, and she then silently walks out of the room, and back out into the courtroom where Abe, Lexie, Ji’Min, Peter, and Maggie all are, and Judge Fitzpatrick says:

    Judge Fitzpatrick: I am afraid I am unable to come to a decision at this time, and will need more time to think about all of this. I am setting the next trial date for May 8th.

    Abe and Lexie then look at each other in a cold stare, as Elvis watches in the background and smirks…

    Episode#245: Cellmates

    -In the hidden area behind the basement of the DiMera Mansion, Renee and Elvis are watching their monitors and Stefano, and Elvis comments that the custody trial over Lexie’s son should be going on right about now, and Renee asks why they even have to bother with her and she’s useless to them. Elvis tells her that for one their father was all about family, and two it keeps her quiet about them. Renee then says:

    Renee: I suppose you may be right, just be careful when dealing with her. We can’t have her find our other guest.

    -Julie is put in a holding cell at the police station by one of the officers, and she sighs and wonders why all of this has to happen to her and her family in such a short amount of time. Doug, Alice, Hope killing Gina and becoming an alcoholic, and now Hope on the run and her locked up in jail. She puts her hands on her face and a few tears even slip out of her eyes, but suddenly a voice says:

    Voice: Julie?! Julie Williams?!
    Julie: Tony DiMera?!

    -At Alamain, after Vivian storms out of Forrest’s office in a huff, Forrest mutters that she has GOT to get out and soon. He looks at Billie and tells her as he kisses her hand that he’ll have an office prepared for her as soon as possible, and Billie tells him no rush. He warns her to be prepared though, because Alamain is chaotic with going public and Vivian is always causing way too much trouble. Billie says to Forrest that Vivian’s been a plague on her family for years, this won’t be any different. Forrest then says:

    Forrest: Yeah, well, don’t worry because now that you’re here I am more determined to get her out of this business. And I think I need your help to do that.

    -At the courthouse in downtown Salem, Lexie tells Peter that there are a lot of things that could cause trouble for her but she’s confident that they haven’t lost yet, they just have to try harder. Peter nods and admits that they may still have a chance, but it’ll be difficult. He also says that they may be able to get some witnesses to testify that Lexie is a very good mother to Theo, and also that they have a small advantage in the fact that she was accepted back at the hospital so soon. Lexie says it’s a start, and thinks to herself that Elvis and Renee had better come through for her.

    *Life in Salem Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo2A7rZhZGA *

    -Down at the pier, Helena is standing alone with a large devilish smile on her face, and whispers how revenge is so sweet. She says that now she has Steve right in her palm, and soon she’ll begin ruining Kayla’s life as well. Someone walks up behind her, with a mask and hood on, and she turns to the person and says “Ah, at last, you’ve come…”

    -Inside the courtroom, Ji’Min tells Abe that they have started out very strongly, and Abe says they just have to keep it up. Ji’Min tells him to not worry, and that their case is strong due to Lexie’s offensive past. Abe tells Ji’Min he just can’t be sure, and suddenly someone walks into the courtroom and Abe turns around to see Maggie! Maggie asks him if she’s too late, and he tells her not at all. As they hug, Lexie looks on in shock.

    -Tony asks Julie what the hell SHE is doing being put in jail, and Julie sighs and tells him it’s a long story and asks him what he’s doing here, and from what she knew he was like a model citizen now. Tony sighs and answers that she might have heard of the trouble his alternate personality, Vince, caused the past few months, such as helping Stefano in Italy and killing Kate Roberts, and he’s integrated but he revealed to him that he raped Kristen Blake shortly after Christmas. Julie looks at Tony in shock and says:

    Julie: Oh Tony…I know how that must hurt to have to pay for crimes another person did.
    Tony: But technically, Vince WAS me! Technically it was me who raped Kristen.
    Julie: You know that’s not true, Tony. You’re a wonderful man and everyone knows it. Soon you’ll be out of here, I know it. Especially if you’ve received therapy for this.
    Tony: Oh yes, Marlena gave me therapy and really helped me through it…she’s a wonderful woman who will always help you no matter what she’s going through. Now, why are you in here?
    Julie: Tony…like your trouble, its hard to explain. Hope has been all too depressed ever since Gina died in November. She became an alcoholic right before Christmas, she even started smoking during that snow storm. All of these deaths have gotten to her, and then Gina coming back and torturing her even more…it caused her to…Hope…she…
    Tony: What is it, Julie? You can tell me.
    Julie: She killed Gina.

    -Billie tells Forrest that she’s not sure how much she could help him getting Vivian out of Alamain, because she is rusty in business tactics and not sure how comfortable she’d even be doing it. She says she does think Vivian is a complete shrew but she’s had a clean slate for awhile now, and she has a feeling they would probably need to use underhanded methods to get her out. Forrest responds by saying she’s probably right, but its best for the business and all of the families they have to provide for. He explains to her how that ever since he returned to take control, Alamain has been nothing but a power struggle, and if he doesn’t end it then Titan is going to gain more popularity and Alamain will collapse.

    -Lexie comments to herself that what her mother told her the other day must be true, and turns back to Peter and tells him she’s sure her mother would be able to help them. Peter agrees, and on the other side of the room Maggie asks Abe how everything’s going, and Abe replies that Judge Fitzpatrick declared a recess and is thinking about everything said so far, and goes on to tell her that his lawyer believes they’ve started out strong so that’s a good sign. Maggie assures Abe that he can do this.

    -Tony looks at Julie in shock and says “Hope Brady a murderer? Julie, no, this is impossible.” and Julie sadly says its true, and that Hope confessed it to her on ThanksGiving. Julie tells Tony that Gina tormented her for so many years and killed her eldest and last son, and Hope had a burst of rage at her. Tony says its understandable, just very shocking. Julie then explains that this drove her to so many terrible lengths, and now she’s on the run because of it all. Tony then tries to assure Julie that Hope is smart, and something tells him she’ll be back.

    -Helena tells the masked person that Steve has been captured, and now he can move in on Kayla. Helena assures him to not worry and it will all be very simple, and she has prepared him for this for all of these months, and now he is ready. Helena then says:

    Helena: It is only a job you can do….Stefan.

    Helena pulls off his mask and hood to reveal the VERY much alive and a man who looks EXACTLY like Steve Johnson….Stefan Cassadine!!!!!!!!

    -Back at the courthouse, Judge Fitzpatrick is in her private deliberation room, and she sits going over everything said in the custody trial and all of the facts and evidence. Out of the blue, Elvis knocks on the door and walks in. Judge Fitzpatrick looks up and asks who on earth he is and she has business to attend to, and he replies that he’s here because of the custody trial over Theo Carver. Judge Fitzpatrick raises an eyebrow, and Elvis says:

    Elvis: If you give full custody to Lexie Brooks, I can make it worth your while…

    Episode: 244, Custody
    Written by: ML Cooks & Tara Smith

    Down town Salem
    3rdCircuit Court.
    Peter Blake with his adopted sister Lexie enters the courtroom. Lexie looks at Abe sitting with his lawyer Ji Min Kim. Lexie and Peter take their seats.
    Bailiff
    “All rise. Judge Fitzpatrick presiding.”
    The Judge enters the room as everyone stands up.
    Judge
    “You may be seated. We are here today in the hearing of custody of Theodore Carver. Are Alexandra Craver and Abe Carver present?
    Peter
    Yes, your honor. My client, Alexandra Carver, is accounted for.
    Ji’Min
    My client, Abraham Carver, is also present. We are ready to begin, your honor.

    -At Alamain Inc., Billie walks into Forrest’s office and Forrest looks up from his desk and smiles at her. He says this is a pleasant surprise, and strokes her cheek as she says she still remembers his offer that night at the Titan party, and Forrest asks if she’s made a decision. Billie then smiles as well and says yes, she will take her mother’s position. Forrest grins and exclaims “Excellent!” but both of them turn around to see a wide-eyed Vivian! Vivian then says:

    Vivian: No, hell no…NEVER! I will not let this spawn of Kate Roberts enter this business!

    -At the Titan building, back to normal despite the chaos caused by the storm, Alexis sits at her desk and is just finishing with a call as Jeremy walks up. She laughs and asks if he has another appointment with Victor, and Jeremy says he came to see her. Alexis asks why he would want to see her, and he asks her if she’d like to go out sometime.

    -Julie looks at Bo in complete shock after he tells her she is under arrest, and Julie exclaims to him that she hasn’t even done anything! Bo tells her that she knew about Hope’s murder of Gina for several months and she didn’t say anything, and Julie tells him that’s because Hope had to confess to it herself! Bo says that the law is the law, and grabs some hand-cuffs out of his pocket and begins to say that she has the right to remain silent and anything she says can and will be held against her and that she has a right to a lawyer, and if she cannot afford one she will be provided one as Julie looks on in shock…

    -Judge Fitzpatrick then says “Lets begin”, and tells Ji’Min to present his case. Ji’Min stands and tells the Judge that his client feels that Lexie is an unfit mother, and is terrified for his son after Lexie’s brutal murders of Tek Kramer and Nikolas Cassadine. Peter then objects, and points out that Tek sexually assaulted Lexie and Nikolas was going to kill her father, and that Judge Fitzpatrick watched Tek’s murder only a few months ago and saw that she was innocent. Ji’Min then responds:

    Ji’Min: Yes, but she also had an affair with this man. She cheated on her own husband, and this isn’t the first time she’s been heavily attracted to another man besides her husband. My client’s own son, Brandon Walker, for example. This kind of woman does not need to be raising a child, your honor.
    Peter: Miss Brooks has not committed adultery in nearly two years, she has moved past this issue.
    Ji’Min: However, we must also not forget another crime of hers. Last year, she kidnapped her mother and began to due work for her criminal father, Stefano DiMera, such as trying to kill many friends and family.
    Peter: My client may have helped her father, yes, but she never directly assaulted anyone and her mother did not press charges for the kidnapping. She also assisted Shane Donovan in capturing Mr.DiMera, and saved many people’s lives in Italy.
    Ji’Min: True, but she also has committed crime against children themselves. She tried to keep Bo and Hope Brady’s own son from them, this obviously shows she cannot raise a child properly.
    Judge Fitzpatrick: I see, I shall take all of the points made into consideration. Mr.Kim, what type of custody is your client pursuing?
    Ji’Min: Full custody with no visitation rights from Miss Brooks, your honor.

    -Forrest tells Vivian it shouldn’t matter to her, she will soon have nothing to do with this business. He says to her that he is still working on getting her removed from Alamain, and soon she’ll be gone. Vivian laughs and says to Forrest that he has been trying for some time now, but obviously has yet to succeed. She tells him and Billie that she is un-stoppable, and she will wipe the floor with both of them.

    -Alexis snorts at Jeremy and asks if he just wants to get her into bed, and Jeremy asks her why he’d want to do that, even though he wouldn’t exactly be completely closed to the possibility. Alexis tells Jeremy that she knows his type, she knows them all too well. She then goes on to say that she’s been in a lot of relationships in her lifetime, and a low-life so she knows what they’re all like.

    -Down at the Salem PD station, Bo has Julie in cuffs and she is being booked. Julie screams that this is an atrocity, and Bo says he hates to do this but she aided his wife in something terrible, a crime, and he has to. She growls to him that she thought he’d at least understand, and as she is dragged away she shouts that now she understands why Hope went on the run!

    -At the coutroom, Lexie looks in shock at Abe after Ji’Min announces Abe want Lexie to have nothing left to do with Theo, and she immediately stands and screams “YOU CAN’T DO THAT TO ME!!!!” and Judge Fitzpatrick yells “ORDER!” and Peter tells Lexie to calm down and this is only making things worse, and Ji’Min tells the Judge that this is EXACTLY why Abe does not want Lexie anywhere near his son, and Judge Fitzpatrick looks at both Abe and Lexie and then says:

    Judge Fitzpatrick: I am declaring a recess for this trial while I consider all of the points made so far.

    Judge Fitzpatrick then stands and walks out of the courtroom, and Lexie is about to get up to go confront Abe but Peter manages to gently hold her back and he snaps:

    Peter: Are you mad, Lexie?! What you just pulled may have cost you your son!

    Episode#243: Rufus!

    -In downtown Salem, Celeste and Valentine walk into Ji'Min's office, and he welcomes them both but looks at Valentine, and Valentine asks what is he looking at, and Ji'Min answers that he's a bit surprised she showed up here. Valentine then says:

    Valentine: Well I was Stefano's main lover and I heard you called Celeste down here to discuss the will, and I am obviously in it, aren't I?
    Ji'Min Well, Miss Heart…actually…you do get some things, but you get the least out of everyone on this list.
    Valentine: WHAT?! This can't be possible! I mean, my Stefano loved me! That will must be tampered with!

    -At the Carver household, Lexie says to her son "Oh, Theo-" and tries to run to hug him but Abe stops her by gently grabbing her arm, and she hisses to him in a low tone "What the HELL do you think you are doing?!" and Abe whispers back that when he says he doesn't want her near his son, he means it. He walks over to Theo and picks him up, and tells him he and Lexie were just talking a bit louder than they should have. Theo tells him that he knows he and his Mommy were fighting, and says that they have been fighting for a really long time over and over.

    - "Sami" tells Marlena that if she doesn't want to "tolerate" her any longer, than just get out of her life. Marlena sighs and says to "Sami" that at this point, after all of those years of trying, she wouldn't mind giving up now. She says she has so many problems to focus on right now, she just can't deal with her anymore. She says to "Sami":

    Marlena: Sami, I'm so sorry, you'll know I always love you…but if you can't mature…I just give up. I can't deal with you anymore.

    -Bo slowly peeks into his and Hope's house, and sees Hope still alone on the couch, holding Pamela and Addie as she continues to sob slightly, and a few more tears come out of Bo's eyes as he wonders how he can tell her he has to turn her in. He tries to keep himself together as he opens the door and walks in, and Hope looks up at his teary face and is silent, and they exchange a stare full of tears like both of them knows what is going to happen, then Bo says:

    Bo: Fancy Face, its time we talk…I've had some time to think about you killing Gina…and…I don't know how to say what I have to tell you.

    *Life in Salem Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo2A7rZhZGA *

    -Helena and her thugs stalk Steve around Salem, and they watch him closely. Helena smirks and tells them the time for them to make their move is so close she can taste it, and she then says that EJ must be looking down on her proudly now. She whispers "Did you really think you could get away with killing my son, Steven? My heir?" and she looks back to her thugs and says:

    Helena: Once he gets into an area where no-one can see and we can do it quietly…we will put our plan in motion.

    -On the edge of Salem, a tooter booter slowly edges along the road. A woman sits inside driving it, and briefly glances at the sign that says they are entering the small town of Salem. She brushes her hair back and many people walking around on the sidewalks take notice of the car driving into Salem, not use to seeing such vehicles, and many wonder who it is…

    -Ji'Min says that it seems the will hasn't been touched at all, and reveals to Valentine that…Celeste gets most of the royalties! Valentine looks at Celeste in shock as Celeste pretends to be stunned, and after a moment of pure silence, Celeste says:

    Celeste: Mr.Ji'Min…are you sure? I never thought I would be the one to receive most of Stefano's belongings.
    Ji'Min: Its true, Ms.Perrault. All of his children have trust funds set up for them, as do you and his grandson Theo, and Tony has the deed to the DiMera Mansion here in Salem, while you receive rights to use his private jets at any given time, as do his children. You also have the deeds to Maison Blanche, Aremid, the DiMera Palace, and any other locations, no matter what they are, that Stefano owned unless noted otherwise, and also any other royalties all go directly to you.
    Valentine: THIS CAN'T BE TRUE! She was just his servant, why would he leave everything to HER?!
    Celeste: Because, most likely when Stefano wrote this will, I was his most loyal subject, and the only one who knew everything about him, Dahling. You were just another lover.
    Ji'Min: Miss Heart, you have received a gracious small trust fund from Stefano. However, it is not nearly as large as any of the others.
    Celeste: And what about the DiMera Business, Mr.Ji'Min?
    Ji'Min: Tony has been named the Executive in Charge.

    Valentine looks at both Celeste and Ji'Min in shock, and screams in anger as she gets up and storms out of the office in a huff…

    -Lexie tells Theo that sometimes Mommy and Daddy fight like that, and its nothing to worry about. Theo asks why, and Lexie tells him that its just how things are sometimes, and once again assures him that everything is fine. Lexie slowly, watching Abe closely, leans in and kisses Theo on the forehead. Abe tells Theo he's going to take him back upstairs, and Theo says okay. Abe slowly walks up the stairs and exchanges one last glance with Lexie, but continues on. Lexie watches them leave, and in anger she stomps out of the Carver house…

    - "Sami" growls at Marlena and tells her to go if she wants to give up on her so easily, and Marlena is about to argue but Nicole tells her that this trash is not worth her time. Marlena looks at Nicole and is silent for a minute, but then she says "You're right, Nicole. Lets go." and then Nicole smirks at "Sami" as she and Marlena leave. Marlena walks down the halls of Salem Inn, she and Nicole heading for the exit, and wonders what has caused Sami to revert to her old self so suddenly…

    -Hope stands up and puts Pamela and Addie back down into their playpens, and asks Bo what they have left to talk about, and that she said everything she could say last night. Bo tells her that he didn't say everything he had to say, and Hope asks what he means, and what more could he have said. Bo then sighs, and answers:

    Bo: Hope, you killed a woman. I don't know what the crack and alcohol has done to you over these past several months, but I can't just forgive you for that.
    Hope: Bo, I thought you understood! But you don't and that's why I kept it from you for so long! I should have known…
    Bo: See, THIS is what the drugs do to you! They cause you to act like someone who's not you. And I do understand, Hope. You don't think the thought crossed my mind to kill Gina when we finally found her? But this isn't just about us, it involves the law now.
    Hope: Wait, Bo, please…Brady…no…you can't be saying what I think you're saying…
    Bo: Y-y-yes…Fancy Face…I have to turn you in…
    Hope: NO! NO! I NEVER THOUGHT YOU'D DO THIS TO ME! NEVER! I knew you'd be upset, but not this…YOU are the one that has changed! I won't go to jail, Bo! That's one thing I will never be able to take!
    Bo: I'm a police officer! And even if I wasn't, I can't just let this slide like its nothing, no matter what Gina has done!
    Hope: Oh please, Brady…I'm sorry, but I won't go to jail. I WON'T!

    With that Hope suddenly pushes her way past Bo, and darts out of the house…

    -Valentine rushes through the streets of Salem in anger, and Celeste runs after her after leaving Ji'Min's office. Celeste mutters to herself "Why are all of Stefano's lovers always so temperamental and unstable?" and she chases after Valentine, and finally catches up to her and asks what is wrong. Valentine responds to her that her lover, the man she gave a lot of her life to, left her nearly nothing. Celeste then says:

    Celeste: Valentine, Dahling, you were just another random lover of Stefano's like Lee, Kate, Helena, and Lord knows who else. All that gives me an advantage is that I was also his loyal servant.
    Valentine: But we had this special bond, we-

    Suddenly, a woman walks up to Celeste and Valentine, and Celeste stares at her oddly…and she asks "Excuse me, Miss, but are you…a man dressed in drag?" and Valentine looks at Celeste in shock, and the woman ignores the question and says:

    Rufus: My name is Rufus, and I'm a woman just like you two ladies., no matter what you say, so don't try to preach a sermon to me or decide my gender. All I have is a question.
    Valentine: Um, you know, I don't think I have time for some lunatic to talk to me.
    Rufus: I should've known you two would be low-down bitches like in Pasadena.
    Valentine: EXCUSE me?! I am VALENTINE HEART, and you will show me some respect!

    Rufus begins to turn and walk away, but Valentine grabs her by the shoulder and turns her around, but as she tries to move her hand away it gets caught…in Rufus's fake breast! Suddenly it pops, and Valentine lets out a shriek of horror and faints while Celeste stares in shock, and Rufus quickly runs off…

    -Steve continues to walk around Salem, as Helena and her thugs follow, and he says to himself that this is taking too long and he should probably take a shortcut through an alley, and Helena is able to hear him and motions for her men to hide at the other side of the alleyway. Steve begins to walk down the alley as Helena watches with a grin on her face, and suddenly as he reaches the end of it…her thugs come out of hiding and knock him out! Helena walks over to his motionless body, and tells them that they know where to take him. They slowly pick him up and carry him off, and Helena takes out her cell phone, dials a number, and says:

    Helena: Phase I of our plan is complete. Meet me down at the Pier…your part in this has come.

    -At the DiMera Mansion, Lexie arrives and stomps down into the basement and into the secret area, and Elvis and Renee both comment at how she is back quick. Lexie looks at her sister and brother, and then straight at Elvis, and she says:

    Lexie: I've decided to take you up on your offer. I want your help with getting custody of my son.

    -Hope drives through Salem, looking desperately for Suga. After glancing around the streets and a few alleyways, she decides to check the Pier and warehouses. She runs frantically through the Pier and sees no one, and then as she heads towards the warehouses she bumps right into Suga. Suga sees Hope's heavy breaths and says "Whats wrong, Ma?" and she tells her that she did something horrible a few months ago, and now her husband wants to turn her in for it. She tells Suga that she just CAN'T go to jail, and Suga flashes back to stabbing Dahila for Natalia in Pasadena and tells her she knows how it feels. Hope then says:

    Hope: You're the only one who can help me now, Suga. I can't go to my family, my husband, or anyone else in this town.
    Suga: Don't worry, Ma. I won't let 'em get ya. We can leave this place together.

    Suddenly both of them hear someone approaching, and they turn around to see…RUFUS! Rufus looks at Suga, and says "I think you're Suga. The Suga from Pasadena. and Suga's eyes widen for a moment at him, and then she says:

    Suga: Maybe, and who do ya think you are?
    Rufus: I'm Rufus, I've come with a proposition for you. I'm willing to pay you a lot of money if you come back to Pasadena with me to help me out with something. Don't worry, I'm not here to turn you in.
    Suga: You want me to go back to that rat-hole town now? You better be paying me a lot of money, boy…or, girl.
    Hope: …The hell?
    Rufus: Trust me. I may not look like much, but I can give you a lot of cash.
    Suga: Well, then, as long as my friend, Ma here, comes with me…lets high-tail it out of this place.
    Rufus: Fine, then.

    As Rufus turns and motions for them to follow him, Suga says to Hope:

    Suga: Well, Ma, looks like we're gonna go to Pasadena.

    Follow Hope to Pasadena, To follow her story, tune into S.T.E.A.M......!

    Episode#242: Abe and Lexie Have it OUT!!!

    - “Sami” says she wonders who that could be, and he goes to answer the door and when he does he sees…Nicole! Stan/ “Sami” groans and asks what does she want, and Nicole smiles at “Sami” sarcastically and answers that she was just coming to see her mother and sister since Marlena told her she was coming over here. “Sami” looks at Marlena and says:

    “Sami”: Wait…did she say you’re her…mother?!

    -Bo tells Megan, at the graveyard outside of St.Luke’s, to just leave him alone and he won’t turn her in to the police. Megan tells him that she can tell something is wrong, and asks whats going on between him and Hope, and thinks to herself that it might be because Hope is a low-life drunk. Bo snaps he would never talk to HER about it, and Megan puts her hands on his shoulders and says he knows he can…

    -Celeste is at her house and keeps flashing back when Valentine told her about Vivian being the mysterious woman, and says that Valentine may be a low-down whore but could prove useful. Suddenly the phone rings, and she answers it and after a moment says:

    Celeste: Mr. Ji’ Min..you would like me to come down to your office…now??

    -Abe tells Lexie that everything they need to discuss has already been discussed, and that he doesn’t have time for this. He begins to shut the door but Lexie puts her foot in the way and says no. She tells him that she’s stayed quiet about this custody battle over Theo long enough. She tells him that today she’s going to say all of what she has to say, and it won’t be pretty.

    *Life in Salem Opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo2A7rZhZGA *

    -Nicole tells “Sami” that’s exactly right, and she’s her new sister! The real Sami, still bound and gagged, hears this and has a face of confusion while “Sami” looks to Marlena in silence, and Marlena quickly intervenes and says with all of the drama going on lately, including Stefano’s death, the storm, and Roman going into a catatonic state she hasn’t had time to talk to her much, and “Sami” says:

    “Sami”: Oh, I get it, Mom. Since I threw a fit over my own uncle killing EJ, you decide to totally shut me out of your life too. I see everything more clearly now. So much for us getting closer, as if we ever even did in the first place. You and I have always had our problems but ever since I have stopped pulling the little childish schemes, I’ve seen you in a whole new light.
    Marlena: Excuse me?! Sami, I know you only lost EJ a few months ago but don’t-
    “Sami”: Shut up, I don’t want to hear the excuses you dish out to everyone, Saint Marlena! And now that you have let this gutter-snipe into the family so quickly it also shows how much you hate me.
    Marlena: Now YOU listen to ME! I have put up with your bitching and all of your screaming for so many years and it finally has stopped over the past year, but it will NOT start again, do you understand me? Now Nicole is my daughter, and it may come as a shock but she is, so we have to accept her! Yet YOU always have to have things your way, and I won’t tolerate this any longer!

    -Bo grabs Megan’s hands and tells her to get off of him, and to just go away. Megan insists that she will stay, and says she wants to help him. She says that she knows about Hope’s drinking, and asks if that’s what is bothering him. Bo doesn’t respond, and Megan tells him that if it is, he has to deal with her the way he knows he should. She then goes on to say:

    Megan: You need to send her off to a clinic or something if her little drinking problem has gotten out of hand. Think about it, Bo. She’s putting everyone around her in danger. Her poor sister Julie, her aunt Maggie, everyone! Even you! And most of all: Those baby girls. Pamela and Addie, right? You’ve already lost two children, while one isn’t even in town anymore…if you let Hope continue her rampage, you are putting them in considerable danger. Think about that, Bo.
    Megan turns and walks off, as Bo stares at the graves…

    -After a brief conversation with Ji’Min, Celeste hangs up her phone and tells Valentine she needs to go meet Ji’Min. Valentine asks Celeste what Stefano’s lawyer could possibly want, and Celeste replies that it is about Stefano’s will. Valentine yells “WHAT?! Well-well, why wouldn’t he call ME down there?! You were just the servant, I was Stefano’s longest-lasting lover…at least, I think…” and Celeste says “Well, we’ll see, won’t we, Dahling?” and both of them leave Celeste’s house…

    -Abe tells Lexie he doesn’t have time for this and has work to do, but Lexie stands her ground and says to Abe he’ll listen, and he’ll listen well. Abe tells Lexie that this is ridiculous, and he turns around to walk back inside but Lexie follows and grabs him by the shoulders and whirls him around, telling him that she is sick of him treating her like just some small complication in their son’s life. Abe then shoots back:

    Abe: I wouldn’t want to have much involvement with murderers, Lexie.
    Lexie: Okay Abe, NOW you have over-stepped your boundaries! You KNOW that Tek’s murder was an accident, YOU WATCHED THE DAMN FREAKIN’ TAPE! And then Nikolas was about to murder my FATHER, and as much as I hate him he’s my flesh and blood! And technically I can’t even be charged for that one! You just keep looking for petty reaons to get Theo away from me!
    Abe: Now Lexie, regardless, you killed them. AND, this isn’t your only offense…not the only one against me, anyway. You SLEPT with Tek over and over, even when I was BLIND! It took me walking in on you to discover it! So don’t pull the whole innocent act on me because that won’t work! And you let me go to jail for Tek’s murder, it took SAMI BRADY coming forward to free me.
    Lexie: Oh, and what would the great Abraham Carver have done?! Both of us have respectful positions in Salem, not to mention a son as well, its not like either of us could easily come forward and confess a murder! Just because I’m the Salem PD Commissioner’s wife I must be some type of pillar of the community?! Abe, I tried that, ok?! And each time it didn’t work!
    Abe: Cut the crap, all you are doing is whining. Lets not forget what else you did after you were arrested for Tek’s murder: You broke out of jail, teamed up with Stefano and kidnapped your mother, and flew all over the world with him to cause mass chaos!
    Lexie: Yes, I was wrong there, but I realized that and I did save everyone’s assess, including yours, in Italy when I got the ISA to help you against Stefano! You would be dead now if it wasn’t for me. But NOOOOOO, that’s not enough for you! Hell, you act like you want me to barge into St.Luke’s and bow at Father Jansen’s feet begging for forgiveness. Oh wait, no, you want me to beg at YOUR feet for forgiveness! Once again, I’ve been there, done that, and it does nothing!
    Abe: Oh just shut up, you little bitc-

    Suddenly Abe and Lexie hear small footsteps coming down the stairs, and both turn to see Theo with a Suddenly Abe and Lexie hear small footsteps coming down the stairs, and both turn to see Theo with a few tears going down his cheeks:

    Theo: Please, Mommy, Daddy stop fighting!

    -Outside St.Luke’s, Bo keeps staring at Shawn and Zack’s graves and begins to think about what Megan said right before she left:

    “Those baby girls. Pamela and Addie, right? You’ve already lost two children, while another one isn’t even in town anymore…if you let Hope continue her rampage, you are putting them in considerable danger. Think about that, Bo.”

    Bo’s eyes begin to get red, as one tear goes down his cheek and onto one of the graves. Bo tries to hold more back, but after a moment he lets it all out and they pour out of his eyes as he breaksdown right there in the public, and his crying can be heard all across the graveyard. He continues to look at where both of his sons are buried, and says:

    Bo: I won’t lose another child….I won’t…

    Bo is silent for another moment as he continues to cry, and thinks to himself he must do what needs to be done, no matter how much it hurts…for Pamela and Addie. Even more tears come after that thought, and Bo finally says:

    Bo: I-I-I-I….I…I…have to turn…H-H-H-H-H….Hope…in….I have to send my own w-w-w-iife to jail…
