  1. EPISODE 144 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: C. Nathaniel Richardson & Nick Monarco Sonny steps into the living room of the Kiriakis mansion, heading over from the kitchen. Adrienne, Justin, Noelle and Alex are all assembled in the living room, and all look up at Sonny as he steps into the room. SONNY: Hey! Ahh, cook just let me know that dinner was gonna be about another 15 minutes? So...just to wait here. ADRIENNE: Great, Honey! Just waiting on Maggie and I guess we'll get everything started. Sonny pops over to sit down on the sofa next to Justin. SONNY: Where is Aunt Maggie? JUSTIN: Oh, she's just gone to visit Victor for a bit. ALEX: Any news on Victor's condition? As Alex asks that question, Maggie walks into the living room, trying in vain to hide her good news. MAGGIE: Well...yes and no. Everyone in the room looks on expectantly, as Maggie stands near the doorway of the living room, her hands clasped together in front of her. NOELLE: Well, what does that mean? MAGGIE: It means that he's turned a corner...but...we can't tell anybody about it. Everyone looks at Maggie, baffled, as Maggie smiles awkwardly back. --- Billie steps off the elevator at University Hospital, and stumbles upon Kim, having a chat with Valerie in front of Theresa's room. Knowing she's not meant to be there, Billie hangs back a bit, but Kim spots her, anyway. Kim glowers as Billie lifts her chin up and walks over. KIM: Billie. I wish I could say I was surprised. BILLIE: Kim. I was actually here visiting Daniel, so you have nothing to worry about. KIM: I'd better not. Billie looks down, trying to compose herself, hoping to avoid another confrontation. BILLIE: I umm...how is Theresa? Kim immediately snaps back at Billie, causing both Billie and Valerie to tense up. KIM: She's the same. Not that that's any of your business. BILLIE: Kim, I... Valerie cuts Billie off, knowing this will go nowhere good. VALERIE: Look, I'm not gonna tolerate you two having an all out brawl in the middle of my hospital. Now, if you wanna have a chat, we can step into the lounge, but we aren't doing this here. BILLIE: Don't worry, Valerie. I'm leaving. KIM: I hope so. And I hope you stay gone, because if I find out you had anything to do with my daughter lapsing back into her coma, I will find out. Billie looks at Kim, incredulous. BILLIE: Kim, what the Hell are you talking about? KIM: I have reason to suspect that someone has been poisoning my daughter to keep her in a coma. BILLIE: And you assume it's ME? (laughs) Oh my God, Kim, you've REALLY lost it this time! Kim glares daggers at Billie, as Billie looks on, laughing at the ridiculousness of Kim's claims. --- Gabi and Will stand in their living room with Sami, deeply troubled by the news Sami's just given them regarding Nick. GABI: Okay...so...if Nick's now the CEO of Titan...I mean...Sami, how far do we want this plan to go? Obviously hooking him on his old medication isn't stopping him, and it's certainly not causing him to get tripped up. Quite honestly, I don't know how much longer I can take this. SAMI: Just...stay the course, Gabi. Will cuts in, getting uneasy with Sami's insistence on persevering. WILL: Oh come on, Mom. How far do we really wanna go with this whole plan? I mean, every time we think we've got this guy handled, he manages to worm his way out and get the upper hand again. And quite honestly, I'm sick of finding out more bad news every time I hear his name. Sami, arms crossed, laughs a bit in resignation. SAMI: Heh. Yeah. You and me both. But there's nothing we can do now. If we don't follow through, Nick WILL win. And Gabi, and Arianna will end up on the other side of the world with Nick Fallon. GABI: Ohhh no. I will die before I let that happen. Gabi and Will looks at each other with a certain level of fear they try to hold back. Sami walks over to the sofa, sitting down and grabbing the pen from the coffee table. She hovers over the modelling contract on the table. Signing the document, she looks up at Gabi. SAMI: Well then, I guess you better sign on the dotted line then. Gabi hesitates, standing back from Sami with her arms folded, clearly tense from the pressure. --- --- Anita stands in her living, while Brady stands facing her, arms folded in front of him. Brady looks at Anita, upset by Anita's seeking the news story of Nick taking over as CEO of Titan. ANITA: Yes...I know who you are, Brady. I've known for a long time. BRADY: Have you, now? And just how long were you planning on keeping this little...secret from me? Anita sighs, trying to find the words to stop Brady from getting too wound up. ANITA: As long as it was going to take for you to trust me. Brady guffaws at Anita's statement, as Anita walks past Brady, looking intensely at the article on her computer screen about Nick's takeover. BRADY: How perfect. So you were gonna keep lying until I trusted you, and for what? ANITA: Then maybe you'd open up to me about what happened to you. Maybe you'd finally let me help you. If I told you that I knew you were Victor Kiriakis' grandson, you'dve been out the door as soon as you were strong enough to crawl out of that bed. BRADY: And maybe I should've. Anita grabs Brady's arm, stopping him from walking out of the room. ANITA: Brady. I didn't keep this from you for my own gain. I did it so that you felt safe here. Nobody from Salem knows you're here, and nobody will as long as YOU want it that way. Brady looks at Anita, a mix of uncertainty, anger, and a strange sense of trust. --- Gabi stares at the pen Sami holds up for her, as Sami sits at the desk in Gabi's living room. Will looks on, unsure of what the situation is, when all hear a knock at the door. Will heads over to open the door, revealing Kate. KATE: Hi! Sorry, I'm late, I had...a lot to take care of. SAMI: So I heard. GABI: So...now that Nick's CEO of Titan...does this change anything where this supposed bidding war is concerned. Kate smiles, confident in her statement. KATE: Oh absolutely not. Gabi smiles, still clearly nervous about the plan. GABI: Okay, good. I uh...I confirmed a date with Nick for tonight. He...uh...he actually asked me first, so... SAMI: Perfect, so we're all set. All you have to do, is sign, and let the fun begin. Sami hands Gabi her pen, as Gabi steps over to the desk, and signs the modelling contract, putting her into a contract with MadWorld at DiMera. Kate, and Sami look at each other with a confidence, while Will looks on, concerned, and slightly confused by the proceedings. --- Valerie opens the door to the hospital lounge, and leads Kim and Billie inside, closing the door behind them. She looks at them sternly. VALERIE: Now, I assume you're gonna keep in civil in here. Kim stands, facing Billie, arms folded as she looks at her with a scowl. KIM: Naturally. BILLIE: Thank you. Valerie looks at both women seriously for a moment, before stepping out of the room, closing the door again behind them, as Billie looks at Kim, exhausted by the fighting. BILLIE: Look, Kim. I've had it with the accusations and the arguments. Okay? I have no idea who, if anyone, is poisoning Theresa, but... KIM: But I guess we're gonna find out. Becuase I have made sure that there is a guard at that door, 24/7 from now on, and they can't so much as take a bathroom break without getting a relief guard. So if you're taking advantage of your little doctor boyfriend to try to sneak into Theresa's room without my knowing? Kim steps in close to Billie, attempting to intimidate her. KIM: I WILL find out about it. Make no mistake. Billie looks back at Kim, unflinchingly. --- The Kiriakises look confused at Maggie, who stands surrounded by them in the Kiriakis living room. She smiles, knowing how awkward her news is. JUSTIN: I'm sorry....what? Maggie smiles, and looks at Justin, before repeating herself a beat later. MAGGIE: We can't tell anyone he's recovering. He doesn't want anyone to know, I guess partly because of what happened at the board meeting today. Honestly, I don't even think he wanted me to tell you all but...I just can't keep it bottled up. We just need to give him the space to recover, and not push him too hard with too many visitors right now. ALEX: Wait...he doesn't? So...does this mean... MAGGIE: That's right. Victor's awake. Everyone, particularly Noelle, take notice, as their eyes widen in surprise. ---
  2. Days: March 2018 Discussion Thread

    My guess is they only addressed it when Eve called out, half-in-the-bag, "Where's the bartender?" in the next episode. But to actually SEE what happened next would've been nice, I agree.
  3. EPISODE 143 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: C. Nathaniel Richardson & Nick Monarco Brady walks into the living room at Anita's cabin. Stepping over to the computer, he moves the mouse slightly, triggering the computer to wake up from its dormant state. He calls out to Anita, who is in the next room. BRADY: Anita! I'm just gonna pull down the ad for the truck, alright?! Anita calls back from the other room, the sound somewhat muffled. ANITA: What was that?! Sitting down with a soda in hand, he looks at the screen, and has to hold himself back from spitting out a mouthful when he reads the news on the screen: BREAKING: Nick Fallon declares self CEO of Titan Industries Brady sets his drink down before he spills it, his hands shaking. Anita steps into the room, about to repeat herself when she sees a distressed Brady looking at the computer screen. ANITA: Wh...Brady? Brady quickly turns around to face Anita, getting up from the desk chair. He points at the computer monitor, stunned and angry. BRADY: What is this? Why do you have this page open? Wh...did you see this?? Anita looks on, puzzled by Brady's strong reaction. --- Sami stands in Will, Gabi, and Sonny's apartment, trying to hold in her panic, as Will stands before her, stunned by the news she's just given him. WILL: I'm sorry. Nick just took over Titan? SAMI: Yep! You've got a new boss. Congratulations. Will sighs, frustrated by the turn of events. WILL: Wh...well how did he manage that? SAMI: The only way that little worm knows how to accomplish anything in life. Blackmail. --- Billie sits in the hospital cafeteria, taking a sip of coffee while she reads a book. After taking a sip, she realizes the foul taste of the coffee, spitting it quickly back into her cup and pushing it away, as Daniel walks in. DANIEL: Hey, I got your text. Billie gets up upon hearing Daniel's voice, wrapping her arms around him and giving him a soft kiss on the lips. They talk while gazing into each other's eyes, their voices growing softer and more sultry with every sentence. BILLIE: Mmm, good. I just was waiting here while you finished up your shift. You all done? I could use a little...soft music and a nice dinner after the day I've had. DANIEL: Oh yeah? BILLIE: Yeah. DANIEL: Well, I think I could be persuaded. On one condition though. Billie looks at Daniel, mockingly giving him attitude, but unable to hold in a laugh as she does. BILLIE: (laugh) Okay. DANIEL: I get to take you back to my place first and work up an appetite. Billie can barely finish her sentence as she begins to kiss Daniel more and more sensually. BILLIE: Mmm, okay, that's a condition I think I could live with. But I got a condition for you if you want some personal time with me. Daniel laughs slightly as he gives Billie another quick kiss. He continues, resting his forehead against Billie's as his arms wrap around her waist. DANIEL: Heh, okay. I'll bite. What's my condition. BILLIE: Make me a better pot of coffee, and I'll be putty in your hands. Daniel laughs heartily, as Billie cracks up a bit herself. DANIEL: Deal. Billie smiles as she wraps her arms around Daniel's neck, pulling him into another kiss, as Maggie bursts into the cafeteria, catching Daniel and Billie off guard. MAGGIE: Daniel! I'm so glad I found you! Daniel and Billie pull away from each other, as they turn to Maggie, concerned. DANIEL: Mom, what is it? Maggie beams with the news she shares with them. MAGGIE: It's Victor. He's awake! He's finally awake! Daniel turns quickly to look at an equally surprised Billie. --- Victor looks on from his hospital bed, too weak to really react to Tyler. VICTOR: Nick...Nick Fallon? Tyler stands next to Victor's bed, arms folded, as he softly nods. TYLER: Yeah. He called everyone to a board meeting and handed out little envelopes, detailing all the dirty little secrets he knows that the board doesn't want publicized and voila! Everyone cowtows to him. VICTOR: H...how the Hell did you let this happen? TYLER: It's a long story, Victor. All I need to know for now is...do you want me to take care of him, or shall I sit on this until you've been released? Victor sighs, looking stoically at Tyler as he mulls over his options regarding Nick. --- --- Adrienne and Alex stand in the living room in the Kiriakis house. Adrienne is shocked, as Noelle has just walked in, making a crack about inviting Anjelica to dinner. ALEX: Noelle. Tell me you didn't... NOELLE: Didn't what? Invite your mother to dinner? Of course I did. Adrienne rolls her eyes dramatically, displeased with this turn of events. ADRIENNE: Great. NOELLE: What?! I heard she was in town for her campaign, she called me earlier while you were out because, big surprise, she couldn't get ahold of Alex. I mean, she certainly wasn't gonna call you or Justin, was she, Adrienne? Adrienne stands with her arms folded. She sighs audibly before responding to Noelle, sulking. ADRIENNE: I guess not. NOELLE: So...there you go. What am I gonna do? Tell her 'no'? She'd kill me! Adrienne guffaws dismissively at Noelle, as she turns to walk away. ADRIENNE: You have no idea how right you are about that-- Alex steps in, trying to stop things from escalating, as Adrienne tries to stand her ground. ALEX: ...Okay, Adrienne. Can we just hold our fire a little bit, here? ADRIENNE: All I'm saying is, you'd opened up Pandora's Box by even just letting her in the room. And now we're all going to have to suffer the consequences for that. Noelle rolls her eyes at Adrienne. NOELLE: Oh come on, Adrienne, you're being melodramatic-- Adrienne cuts Noelle off, waving her hand in front of her as part of her refutation. ADRIENNE: No, no. Believe me, it's not just going to be a single awkward dinner. We will be stuck with that woman now for as long as SHE decides we are useful to her. And I really don't know if I'm prepared to give up my time and energy to such a worthy cause. Adrienne grabs her shopping bags, and heads for the staircase to her room. ADRIENNE: If you'll excuse me. Alex turns to Noelle, who stands, arms folded, nonplussed by Adrienne's concerns. Alex sighs, sensing the brewing conflict between the two women who raised him. --- Will puts down his cell phone, as Sami stands in the apartment, holding a now-awake Ari in her arms. SAMI: So? What did Alex have to say about it? Will sighs, looking away from Sami, trying to process the news. WILL: Yeah. Nick pulled it off. Even Kate apparently voted in favour of it. SAMI: She WHAT? WILL: Yeah. I mean, I guess she had her reasons but... SAMI: Well, she's coming to meet us in a few minutes, anyway, so...I guess we'll get our answer then. As Sami finishes her sentence, Gabi comes through the door, grocery bags in her hands. She looks over, pleased to see Sami. GABI: Oh good, you're here. Sami smiles half-heartedly, as she bounces young Arianna in her arms. SAMI: Hey! Did you, uh...hear the news? GABI: What news? WILL: Nick's just become CEO of Titan. Gabi sets the bag down on the kitchen table, before looking at both Will and Sami, stunned. GABI: You're kidding. SAMI: Nope! So we need to take the next few steps incredibly carefully, or else we are all just a step away from going to prison for a long time. Gabi looks at Sami, sighing in despair as she realizes the corner she's being put in. --- Victor lays in his hospital bed, as Tyler stands next to him, awaiting his answer. Victor responds slowly and breathlessly. VICTOR: Wait him out. Let Nick bury...bury himself. And make sure...nobody knows that I...I've come to. I ca...I can't handle any visitors. Victor exhales gently and falls into a sleep. Tyler looks on as Victor closes his eyes, sighing. As he does, Maggie and Daniel step into the room, only to find Victor back asleep. Tyler turns, holding a hand up to reassure Maggie, whose face has immediately fallen upon seeing Victor's eyes shut. TYLER: Don't worry. He just fell asleep. I think he's still very weak. MAGGIE: I know. Thank you, Tyler. Maggie takes Tyler's hand, squeezing it gently as Tyler cups Maggie's hands in his. Daniel grabs a stool and scoots over to Victor's bedside. He turns back to Tyler and Maggie, shooing them away. DANIEL: I'm gonna need to check on Victor, so, I'm gonna have to ask you to step out. TYLER: That's fine. I have to head back to the office anyway. Um...Maggie, Daniel. Victor asked us to keep quiet on his coming to for awhile. Doesn't want a slew of visitors or anything while he's this week. DANIEL: I'll co-sign that. The last thing Victor needs is a procession of family members crowding in here before he's ready for them. Maggie nods in agreement, still a bit emotional from the turn of events. MAGGIE: I understand. I'll umm...Daniel. Thank you. I'm gonna go home. Tyler, thanks again. TYLER: You alright to drive, Maggie? MAGGIE: I'll be fine. Thank you, though! Maggie and Tyler step out of the room, closing the door behind them. Daniel stares at Victor, smiling warmly at him. DANIEL: Good work, old man. You made it back. Victor sleeps, oblivious to Daniel's words, as Daniel begins to work on updating his chart. --- Kate stands in Roman's office at the Salem PD. She's baffled by Roman's sudden confusion about his whereabouts. KATE: Roman...wh...Anderson Manufacturing hasn't been around in...over 30 years. And you were never involved with them, it--I mean, at least not that I'm aware of I... Roman stands facing away from Kate, looking down at the ground, lost in his thoughts, as Kate steps slowly over to him. KATE: Roman, I'm worried about you. ROMAN: Kate, don't be. Kate looks on at Roman, frustrated resignation, as her arms fall to her side. KATE: Look, I don't know what's going on with you, but...if you need to step aside from this case, I'd be happy to let Billie handle it unilaterally from here on in. ROMAN: Nah, I...it's okay. Roman turns back toward Kate, shaking his head, still an uncertainty in his tone and demeanour. ROMAN: I um...I just need some time to refresh myself with the case. So...you just e-mail me what you need to fill me in on and...I'll take it from there. Kate stares at Roman, as he sits down at his desk and grabs the framed photo of his family, a grave concern for him plainly visible in her eyes. She wordlessly puts her purse up over her shoulder and walks out, leaving Roman behind, trying to fight back his pent-up emotions. As Kate closes the door behind her, Roman stares at the photo in his hands. Marlena, Sami, Eric and himself, from the time Sami & Eric were babies. The longer he stares, the more frustrated he gets, finally throwing the picture across the room. The picture frame shatters as Roman breaks down in tears. --- Anita approaches Brady, baffled by his outburst. ANITA: See what? Brady steps aside, ushering Anita closer to the computer. BRADY: This! Anita studies the headline, before sighing. Brady looks at her, arms folded. He motions at the computer as he continues. BRADY: I think you better explain yourself right now. ANITA: Brady, I didn't want to get into this until you were ready to talk about what happened to you. Brady snaps at Anita, not waiting for her to finish. BRADY: I am not ever going to be ready if you keep being secretive with me. Anita raises her voice momentarily to match Brady's, before stopping herself mid-sentence to finish her thought. ANITA: I'm no--I'm not being secretive. But...maybe I haven't been completely forthcoming. Brady laughs sarcastically at Anita's statement, putting his hands up in the air in frustration. BRADY: Yeah, you could say that. ANITA: You haven't been either. BRADY: And how do you know that, Anita? Anita looks away momentarily, before looking up at Brady solemnly. ANITA: Because I do know who you are, Brady. And I know exactly how you got here. Brady tenses his lips, trying very hard to keep from saying something he'll regret in anger. ---
  4. Days Of Our Lives Renewed

    Considering they can't even have a single conversation about a new character's history? (I'm looking at you, Stefan O...) I have very little hope. The only successful (relatively) "new" family has been the reintroduction of the Grants, but even then, it's been kinda shakey, thanks to Dena's stupid intro story for Valerie and Eli killing David off out of nowhere offscreen.
  5. Days: March 2018 Discussion Thread

    Like...I was afraid he'd go there on DAYS, but I was hoping he'd at least bring Kim back to ressurect her DID instead giving a THIRD character what's supposed to be an incredibly rare diagnosis on the same show. As someone on here said a long time ago, it's nothing more than an excuse to get a character to behave out of character (which Ron LOVES to do instead of creating actual complex villains ). Stefan O. STILL three months in has absolutely no backstory, no nuance, nothing interesting about him. Just a fixation on Abbygabbylauragail, and I DO. NOT. CARE. I will continue to not care until we at least get a conversation about his past and what makes him tick. It breaks at least three Marland rules, certainly to have him on so much when he's so new, and established characters who SHOULD be involved in heavy story are conspicuously absent (I know, I know, guarantees, but the renewal at the same time that Y&R and DAYS are so close in the demos should help NBC at least throw SOME extra $$$ their way).
  6. Days: March 2018 Discussion Thread

    Yes to all of this. HOWEVER, I have to say I noticed a significant drop in energy from Friday to Monday. I was stunned because Richard Culliton's scripts are usually on point. This, I feel, was down to direction. Jennifer and Eric's fight was well-written up until they laughed it off. It felt very well-written and drew me in but for them to just go "oh, I guess this is our first fight LOL" was stupid. That could've been a jumping point to some REAL drama that could carry them in a story, but... I have to agree about Ciara. This actress has the fire that I was hoping Ciara would have when aged up. She's what I would have seen Ciara be after Lauren Boles' Ciara was aged up. It's a shame they wasted that year and a half with Lockjaw Jovanni because this Ciara is a winner.

    Be careful, you’ll see the headline “Dena Higley IN” right afterwards.
  8. EPISODE 142 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: C. Nathaniel Richardson & Nick Monarco Roman walks into his office at the Salem PD, and looks the room over, suddenly feeling foreign to him. After a moment of inspecting everything, his desk, the window to outside, the picture of his family from years ago, he sets the framed picture down on the desk face down, and looks the room over once again. His eye turns to the door as Kate walks in, briskly. KATE: I'm sorry I'm late, but I had to be in the square for Nick's press conference. Kate puts her clutch down on the table, oblivious to Roman's confused state, she throws her hands in the air in frustration. KATE: There's just...so much going on the last few days, I need to get you up to speed. For instance, when are we going to get Jordan and Sheryl's arrest warrants out, and how much evidence do you need to pro-- Kate stops upon turning toward Roman, who looks on at her, confused. KATE: Roman. Are you alright? Roman looks back at Kate with a blank expression. --- Adrienne walks briskly into the Kiriakis living room, dropping her shopping bags on the sofa, before calling out as loudly as possible in the hopes that someone is home. ADRIENNE: ALEX?? NOELLE! MAGGIE? Alex walks in casually from the hallway heading into the kitchen, a curious expression on his face as he pops a blueberry in his mouth. ALEX: Adrienne? What's up? You look like you've seen a ghost. ADRIENNE: Yeah, you could say that. I quite literally just ran into your mother in Town Square. Alex swallows hard, an uncomfortable look on his face. --- Maggie sits beside Victor's hospital bed. Victor having just emerged from his coma. Victor manages a weak smile as he gently squeezes her hand. MAGGIE: Victor! You're awake! Victor barely peeps out a sound, as he remains incredibly weak. VICTOR: Maggie. Wh...where am I? MAGGIE: At University Hospital, darling. You've been in a coma for a number of weeks now. Victor looks around, sighing as he realizes what's happened. Maggie, eager to see Victor's progress continue, gets up, heading excitedly for the door. MAGGIE: I'm going to go get Daniel to come check up on you. VICTOR: Mag... Victor reaches out for a moment before his weak body gives in. Struggling to keep his eyes open, Victor sighs in frustration as Maggie heads out of the room. Outside Victor's hospital room, Tyler emerges from the elevator. Maggie walks over to him. TYLER: Maggie! MAGGIE: Oh, Tyler! I'm so glad you're here. TYLER: What is it? Maggie puts a hand on Tyler's shoulder, and smiles warmly. MAGGIE: It's Victor. He's awake. Tyler looks back at Maggie with a mix of happiness, and of dread. --- --- Will races to the door of his apartment to stop the frantic knocking at the front door. Opening it, he finds Sami, who bursts into the apartment in an enraged frenzy. Will tries to cool Sami down, pressing a finger to his lips to motion her to keep quiet. SAMI: Thank God you're here. WILL: SHH! Ari's having a nap! Sami stops herself for a second, resting against the edge of the armchair in the living room, as Will walks quickly over to close Ari's bedroom door. SAMI: Sorry. WILL: What was so urgent? SAMI: Where's Gabi? Will stumbles over his words, thrown off by Sami's lack of focus. He responds firmly without shouting. WILL: Gabi's at the corner store grabbing milk. What is the problem? SAMI: Well, for one, you have a new boss. Will looks confused, furrowing his brow. WILL: What do you mean? SAMI: I mean Nick Fallon just staged a coup to take over Titan, and if you're not careful, he's got enough on you to ruin your entire career before it even begins. Will's jaw drops at the stunning news of Nick's ascent. --- Alex stands in the Kiriakis living room, watching an on-edge Adrienne pace behind the sofa, while he continues to munch on his blueberries. ADRIENNE: So she basically just...invited herself to dinner, which, of course, I turned her down, but...not that THAT would ever stop her... ALEX: Well, I think she should come to dinner. Adrienne stops in her tracks, looking incredulously at Alex. ADRIENNE: Alexander Kiriakis, are you serious? Alex looks at Adrienne and shrugs at the idea. ALEX: I don't see why not. Look at it this way, if she comes to dinner tonight, it'll probably pacify her and we won't have to have her asking me to stay here while she's in town. ADRIENNE: Alex, that's exactly why I DON'T want her coming to dinner. You know full well she's going to use that dinner invitation to guilt you into letting her stay for however many days she claims she'll be in town, and before you've even shown her what room she's staying in, she'll have her entire campaign team set up in the dining room! A voice calls out from behind them, causing both Alex and Adrienne to turn toward the entrance to the living room. NOELLE: Well, I guess that answers my question on how everyone feels about having company for dinner tonight, then? Noelle walks into the room, hands on hips, with a wry smile. Adrienne looks on, unimpressed, while Alex seems...uncertain, looking back at Adrienne before turning back to look at his wife. --- Kate steps over to Roman, putting a hand on his shoulder out of concern. Roman fidgets at Kate's touch. KATE: Roman... ROMAN: Just stop...I'm sorry. I haven't had much of a chance to look into this the last few days. Kate looks over at Roman, shocked by his uncharacteristic lack of attention, as Roman sits down behind his desk. KATE: I...I don't get it. You knew this was a huge case, Roman. I put my relationships with my kids, with...with Rafe...I put that on hold for this. All to see justice done. And with all the...chaos that's been going down between the virus and...Nick taking over Titan, you...Roman, are you okay? Roman snaps at Kate, taking her aback. ROMAN: Dammit, Kate, I'm fine! I can't even have a cup of coffee in the morning without someone asking me what's going on here at Anderson and how I'm gonna take care of this, and I'll tell you, since Bob died, it's been absolute chaos. Kate looks at Roman, confused and stunned. KATE: Anderson? Wh...what are you talking about? --- Tyler stumbles over his words, stunned by the news that Victor's awakened from his coma. TYLER: Y...You're sure? Maggie looks on, excitedly, almost bouncing as she speaks with joy. MAGGIE: Yes! Isn't it terrific news? I mean...he's...I'll admit, very groggy. I think it's gonna take some time before he's fully awake but...oh this is such good news. I'm going to have to tell the family, but...first I need to get ahead of Daniel. Excuse me. TYLER: Certainly. Tyler watches Maggie run off to speak to the nurses in hopes of tracking Daniel down, before looking over toward Victor's room. He slowly walks over, peering inside the room as he gently pushes the door open. Looking back again as Maggie runs off to find Daniel, Tyler steps into Victor's room. Victor, still barely revived, gently turns his head to see who's come in. Barely audible, he chokes out a greeting. VICTOR: H...Houston. Shutting the door behind him, Tyler slowly walks toward Victor's side. He speaks softly,but with urgency. TYLER: Victor. It's good to see you awake. VICTOR: ...It's....it's good to see you...at all. Tyler chuckles to himself, before his face drops again, sighing as he continues. TYLER: Victor...I don't mean to hit you with bad news so soon after you've come to, but...we have a...we have a situation at Titan. Victor looks at Tyler, his expression unchanging, but with a tension in his face that wasn't there a moment before. VICTOR: Wh...what kind of situation? TYLER: It's Nick Fallon. He blackmailed the board into making him CEO. Victor turns his head slowly, looking up at the ceiling. He closes his eyes for a moment and curses, barely above a whisper. VICTOR: Damn. Victor turns his head back toward Tyler, their eyes locking in a serious gaze. VICTOR: Make him pay...for this. ---
  9. EPISODE 141 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: C. Nathaniel Richardson & Nick Monarco Nicole steps into her office at WXIR, shutting the door behind her, as Sami and Abby look on in shock. SAMI: I'm sorry...what did you say? NICOLE: Nick just held a press conference, and announced to the world that he is now the CEO of Titan Industries. So, hey, at least you can take solace in knowing that at least ONE thing is going your way today, right, Sami? Sami rolls her eyes, as Abby looks on, somewhat confused. ABBY: Why? What happened? NICOLE: Well, I wasn't gonna say anything but...Eric and I got married today. Abby lights up, surprised, and pleased for Nicole. ABBY: Wow! Oh my God! Congratulations! Nicole looks on, less excited than Abby. NICOLE: Yeah! I was real excited until THIS ONE decided to crash the party! Brought her mom too to REALLY rub the salt in! Abby's face freezes, as she looks over Sami's way. Sami grimaces, with her arms folded. Nicole gives a sarcastic grin to emphasize her displeasure. --- Maggie walks into Victor's hospital room, closely watching her husband as he lays comatose in his bed, still recovering from his heart attack. She looks on lovingly, as she steps toward him. Gently speaking to him as though he were awake. MAGGIE: Victor. It's me. Maggie. After a moment, she pulls up a chair and sits down beside his bed. She smiles though she's tearing up slightly. MAGGIE: I hope you can hear me. I hope you know I'm here. They say...that coma patients can hear people in the room. And I'm really hoping my voice will help you. Maggie takes Victor's hand in hers, and pulls it up to her lips, gently kissing it. MAGGIE: We need you back, Victor. --- Eric stands in Marlena's penthouse, sighing in frustration at being put on the spot by his mom. ERIC: Mom, I... MARLENA: Eric, you loved your vocation so much. Being a priest meant everything to you. Wouldn't you at least want the world to know that you were a victim of a...vicious sociopath? Don't you want to clear your name? Eric snaps at his mom, before stepping back a bit, hoping not to escalate things between them further. ERIC: Of course I do! I just... MARLENA: Just what? Eric, don't tell me you're giving up everything you worked so hard for for Nicole. ERIC: Can we not...make this another attack against Nicole? Please? Marlena steps back from Eric, trying to keep her cool despite her visceral frustration at Eric's weakness for Nicole. MARLENA: Yes. I'm sorry. Eric remains calm, but speaks firmly with Marlena, which Marlena silently accepts. ERIC: Look, Mom, I'm not interested in going down that road right now. I struggled with what happened with Kristen for a long time, and I finally got the answers I needed. I'm going to tell the public what really happened, but when I do, it will be when I am ready. I can't do this on your schedule...and I'm certainly not going back into the priesthood, even if I am accepted back. Marlena looks down, disappointed. MARLENA: I wish you'd reconsider. ERIC: I know this hurts you, but I am happy with Nicole. I am happy to be married to her. And I'm not going to give up that happiness, not for anything. Marlena tries to hold her sadness and disappointment in, but can't help but tear up a bit. --- --- Daniel and Kim stand in Theresa's hospital room. Kim looks horrified as Daniel looks down, contemplating how to relay his news to Kim. DANIEL: Kim, no one is drugging your daughter. Okay? I promise you. No one unauthorized is visiting her. My only concern is that she's emerging from her coma irregularly. That tells me that there's more complications in her recovery than I initially realized. Kim looks up at Daniel, squinting a bit as she mulls over whether or not she believes him. She slowly nods, before taking Theresa's hand in hers, and squeezing it gently, as she watches over her, lovingly. KIM: I know...I know it's a miracle that she's even alive. I mean...considering how badly she was injured in the ac--the crash. Kim stops herself, looking up at Daniel, suddenly becoming very stoic, trying to hold herself together. KIM: I know you and Brady are family, but I really struggle with what he did to my daughter. And I am finding it really hard to forgive him. I don't mean to sound cruel but...sometimes I'm... Kim stops herself from speaking out of spite. Daniel stands silent, acknowledging Kim's pain. He nods slowly as she expresses her anger in a subdued, controlled way. KIM: You know...it's hard to forgive a lot of people. Because a lot of people have a hand to play in how my sweet little Jeannie ended up like this. Kim begins to tear up, as she fails to hold it together. Never shouting, Kim overflows nonetheless with emotions. KIM: She struggled so hard. And... and the worst part is, the person I have the hardest time forgiving...(sigh) is me. Kim wipes away tears, as she walks out of the hospital room, leaving Daniel behind with Theresa. KIM: Excuse me. Kim steps outside, closing the door behind her, as she struggles to compose herself. Daniel, still in the room, stares at Theresa, as her lifeless body lays in her hospital bed, her progress ever-stagnant. --- Marlena stands, facing away from Eric, hoping to hide her tears from her son. Eric knows better, and walks up behind her, putting his hands on her shoulders to try to comfort her. ERIC: Mom. Mom, I'm sorry. I know how proud you were of me being a priest. But... Marlena turns around with a start, speaking emphatically, as she touches Eric's face. MARLENA: No, no, no, you don't...Eric, I don't want you to think for a second I'm not proud of you every minute of every day. Eric, you're a wonderful, compassionate man who gives so much of himself every day. You don't need to be a priest to give back to this world. Marlena takes Eric's hands in hers, then looks up at her son, proudly. MARLENA: No matter what way you choose to take your life...I will accept it. Marlena gives a cheeky smile as she struggles to hold in a laugh. MARLENA: I may not like the direction you're going (laughs)...but I always accept your decisions. I trust you to know what's best for you. ERIC: Thanks, Mom. Marlena pulls Eric into a hug, suddenly overcome with emotion. She closes her eyes as she embraces Eric tightly. MARLENA: Ohhh Eric, I love you so much. ERIC: I love you too, Mom. Love you too. Eric looks off, a wistful smile on his face as he holds his mom in his arms, feeling a sense of true comfort. --- Sami gives Nicole sideeye as Nicole steps over toward her desk, trading places with Abby. SAMI: You know, I really didn't want to crash your little party either, Nicole. But when I found out you were getting married, I had to stop my brother from making a huge mistake. NICOLE: Right. The huge mistake being me. We get it, Sami. You hate me. Can we stop pretending you're keeping me here because you respect my talents? Sami puts a hand on her hip, annoyed by Nicole's accusation, and expecting another glib response. SAMI: Okay Nicole. Tell me, since you know everything. Why am I keeping you here? NICOLE: To keep an eye on me. Make sure I don't step outta line. Nicole laughs to herself, as she shakes her head. Abby stands off to one side, increasingly uncomfortable being in the room with the two adversaries. NICOLE: You know, ever since you took over Titan TV, I've been wondering exactly why you didn't fire me right away. And now I get it. You know the old saying: Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer? You're a master at that! That's why you made Abigail my assistant, isn't it? She's your little spy, isn't she, Sami? Abby tries to interject, trying to refute Nicole's claim, but can barely get a word in edgewise. ABBY: I...wait, for the record, I-- SAMI: Oh come on, Nicole. If I had that kind of time to micromanage our local station's what...third-most recognized reporter? I really don't think I'd get much work done. NICOLE: You're right. You don't get much work done. Just like I'm not getting much work done arguing with you. So, if you'll excuse me, your spy and I have an extremely important piece to complete for tomorrow's newscast. So you need to leave. Sami prepares to leave, when Nicole holds up a finger, leaving Sami with a final thought. NICOLE: But just remember something, Sami. If you even think of firing me for marrying Eric, I will slap DiMera with a lawsuit so fast, you won't have time to pack your crap up before they kick you out of your office. Got it? Sami sighs, folding her arms as she gives a knowing look to Abby, who tries to very subtly shrug as her eyes widen. SAMI: Fine. I'll go. Sami walks out of Nicole's office, with a parting shot. SAMI: But just for the record, Nicole. If I find out you did ANYTHING to hurt my brother, you WILL be out on your ass faster than you can say "annullment", let alone spell it. Sami gives an almost saccharine smile, as she gives a sarcastic parrellel retort to Nicole, her eyes shooting daggers her way. SAMI: Got it? Sami steps out of the office, slamming the door behind her with a casual but brisk motion. Abby and Nicole look at each other, Abby looking very uncomfortable, and Nicole looking exasperated, and relieved to have Sami gone. --- Maggie holds on tightly to Victor's hand, as she suddenly feels a bit of pressure back on her hand. Taking a moment to loosen her grip, she feels Victor tighten his around her hand, as Victor's heart monitor begins to pace up sligthly. Gently wiping away tears, Maggie laughs through the tears, as Victor begins to stir. She smiles as Victor begins to open his eyes. Groggy, he looks at Maggie and, almost silently, calls out to her. VICTOR: Maggie... Maggie, hearing her name, breaks down in tears of joy, holding her husband's hand as he comes to. MAGGIE: Victor! You're back! ---

    The music on DAYS has sucked since Marty Davich's cues were phased out around 1994-95. I think there's an archived thread on here in his honour somwhere, in fact. Unfortunately, Corday looooves to score his show (he was a wannabe musician before working on the show), so we're basically doomed to endure what we have for as long as he's living.
  12. DAYS: February 2018 Discussion Thread

    This is coming from someone who, up until now, has been enjoying Ron's DAYS (mostly): - I see we're back to nothing mattering longterm on this show. Theo's shooting didn't affect the Hortons' and the Carvers' relationship whatsoever, it was just an extreme plot point to usher Theo off canvas and set up this WTD story for Lani and JJ. - On a related note, I see Maggie's moving out. Yeah, that'll last until next week, I'm sure. They gave some great rationale for it, but if there's no lasting impact, does it matter? - I'm sorry. I blinked for a moment and apparently missed Billie's entire return "story". And in two days, this Pam Van Dam show up, hold the kids hostage, and dies and they're already back to their petty angst with Claire, as though nothing happened? Stupid! - These returns are great, but I don't see the point if they're going to last a week at a time, and they interact with only a small sliver of the characters they were involved with when regulars. Carrie's return was ridiculous like this, as someone said upthread. - The guarantees are killing this show. Something's gotta give. And fast.
  13. EPISODE 140 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: C. Nathaniel Richardson & Nick Monarco Sami glares at Abby as they stand in Nicole's office at WXIR. Abby looks on, somewhat uncomfortable by the position Sami is putting her in, and stands with her arms folded. SAMI: Well? Should I be worried that this report is going to implicate Will? Abby sighs, dropping her arms to her side in frustration. ABBY: Sami-- SAMI: I think I have a right to know. My son took a job at Titan, and no, I'm not happy about it, but I am still going to protect him. Abby responds, looking away thoughtfully. ABBY: I understand that. I would...(sigh) I would want the same for my child. SAMI: Then, as your boss, I should tell you that if Will is involved in this EnerNext mess in any way...you will keep his name out of Nicole's report. Abby looks at Sami, struggling to answer. --- Daniel stands at the nurses' station at University Hospital, as Kim approaches him, a look of concern on her face. KIM: Daniel! Daniel turns around with a start, looking pleasantly at Kim. DANIEL: Kim! Hey! I'm glad you're here. KIM: Well, I heard there was some news about Theresa and I headed straight down. DANIEL: Yeah... Kim's brow furrows as she questions Daniel's peculiar reaction. KIM: It's good news right? Daniel struggles to give Kim an answer, causing Kim to look even more concerned. --- Marlena walks into her living room, surprised and worried, as Roman and Eric look over at her. MARLENA: Eric! Eric looks at Marlena, respondingly politely but coldly. ERIC: Mom. Marlena, unsure how to approach the situation, looks over at Roman as she continues to approach. MARLENA: Roman...what is going on? Are you alright? Roman relaxes somewhat, but is still deeply frustrated. He turns, and, without looking at Marlena, begins to walk away. ROMAN: Yeah. Fine. I'm gonna head out. Roman grabs his jacket, but Marlena tries to stop him. MARLENA: Roman. ROMAN! Where are you going? Unable to stop Roman from leaving, Roman quickly responds before walking out and closing the door. ROMAN: To work! As the door slams shut, Marlena winces, and Eric looks over at the closed door. He looks back at Marlena, suddenly worried, but trying to hide it. ERIC: Mom, I'm sorry. I... Marlena interrupts, overwhelmed and angry. Unable to stay calm anymore, she grabs Eric's arm, forcing him to look her in the eye. MARLENA: Eric, what did you say to him? Eric meets Marlena's stare, confused and surprised. --- --- Eric pulls away from his mother, looking away after a moment of intensity between them. ERIC: I didn't say anything. I realized he didn't remember me or the entire Kristen fiasco and he...he lost it. Marlena stops a moment, before turning back to Eric, a bit confused. MARLENA: Kristen? ERIC: Yes, Kristen. The whole mess that YOU helped create. Marlena stops herself, looking down partly in shame and partly to cool her misplaced anger. MARLENA: I know. ERIC: I came here to give you both news about it, in case you're wondering. Marlena looks up, intrigued. MARLENA: Oh? Eric nods, remaining cold and sombre, not quite able to look Marlena in the eye. ERIC: (sigh) Yeah. A package came in the mail for me after Nicole and I got home from City Hall. Eric reaches over to the sideboard where he'd placed the envelope containing the Chyka files. He hands them to Marlena, who immediately pulls them out, looking them over in an increasingly excited way. MARLENA: Oh my...Oh my God, Eric! This is the evidence you needed! Oh HONEY! Marlena lurches forward, hugging Eric tightly, causing him to tense up, before gently forcing Marlena from her hug. ERIC: Mom. Please. MARLENA: Wh--Eric, I'm sorry. ERIC: Just...don't right now. After the stunt you and Sami pulled today, just...don't. I came here to tell you the news, that's all. Marlena reaches out to stop Eric before he leaves. MARLENA: No. Eric, stop. Eric stops in his tracks, rolling his eyes and sighing as he turns back to face his mom. ERIC: Mom, I don't have time for this, I-- MARLENA: This, this will just take a second. I need to know what this means for you and...you and the priesthood. Eric looks to Marlena, as Marlena waits impatiently for his answer. --- Nick stands behind the podium at the press conference in Horton Town Square, gesturing for Tyler to step forward and join him at the podium. Once Tyler does, very reluctantly, step forward, Nick continues his announcement. NICK: Mr. Houston here has been a major help to me in not only tracking down these hackers, but also with giving me the...confidence to put my name in the ring to lead this company. With his help, and my vision, I firmly believe that Titan will be a successful power player into the coming decade and beyond. Thank you, everyone. Tyler grabs Nick's arm and pulls him aside just out of the earshot of the microphones, as the press begin to buzz furiously within seconds of Nick's speech ending. Tyler looks at Nick, enraged. TYLER: What the HELL do you think you're doing? Nick laughs softly, giving Tyler a shrug. NICK: I thought you'd be thrilled. I keep your secret, you help me fullfil my goals. TYLER: And what if I don't. I have no loyalty to you, kid. NICK: Then I guess you'd better develop a loyalty to the colour orange. Cos' that's the only colour you'll be wearing if you back out now. Nick quickly looks Tyler up and down, before chuckling to himself. NICK: ...Nah. Not your colour. Nick walks away, heading out of the square, leaving Tyler behind, incredulous. Justin approaches him, his eyes trained on Nick. Justin puts a hand on Tyler's shoulder. JUSTIN: Something tells me that appointment wasn't exactly a mutual decision. TYLER: You'd be right. And it's not going to happen, either. Excuse me. Tyler walks off, following Nick out of the town square. --- Daniel and Kim step into Theresa's room. It's dark, and the only sound is the beep of the heart monitor, as a comatose Theresa lays in the bed. Kim looks down lovingly at her daughter, as she holds Theresa's hand. Daniel looks over at Theresa before he begins. DANIEL: I have reason believe she may be starting to...come out of the coma. Kim looks on surprised and thrilled by the news, but it's immediately tempered by Daniel, as he interjects to stop her from reacting. KIM: Oh my-- DANIEL: Wait...Kim, there's something else you need to know. Kim's face drops as she moves from excitement to panic. KIM: What? Is something wrong? Wh-what's happening? DANIEL: She's...we...okay, I don't mean to alarm you, it's...it's likely nothing, but, I noticed something in her chart, I' ve never seen it before. Coma patients don't tend to start emerging from their coma and then immediately drop back into it...not unless they're being induced into it. Kim clutches Theresa's hand, increasingly worried, as Daniel tries to keep calm. KIM: Well you're not inducing the coma, obviously. I mean, that's...that doesn't make sense. DANIEL: You're right. And we aren't. Kim looks over at the door, then Daniel, confused and increasingly frustrated. KIM: Well, then, I don't get it, I...I mean you have the door guarded, they would've seen anyone who's been coming in or out of here, they'dve had to. We're trying to keep Billie out, so... Daniel looks away for a moment, sighing, as he tries to keep Kim from digging any deeper. DANIEL: Yes...it's just been me, you, and the nurses. That's all, I promise you. KIM: So, then, I don't understand, Daniel. Are you saying one of the nurses could be drugging my daughter? Daniel sighs, unsure whether to tell Kim or not. --- Abby folds her arms, as she furrows her brow, frustrated by Sami's interference. ABBY: Sami, I can't force Nicole's hand. She's going to see right through me if I do that. SAMI: Find a way, Abby. ABBY: It's not that easy. SAMI: I'm sorry, who's your boss here? Abby sighs, dropping her arms to the side, and tensing her hands into fists, as she stops herself from shouting at Sami. ABBY: If I suppress information about this story to protect Will or anybody else, for that matter, I might as well kiss my career goodbye. We have journalistic standards to adhere to. SAMI: Let me handle that. Just keep Will out of it. Abby throws her hands up, exasperated. After a moment, she argues back. ABBY: Look, Will's name probably won't even be important enough to mention on air. SAMI: Like Hell it won't be. He wrote all their press releases. ABBY: So we may have to speak with him to get more information. Look, Sami, I honestly don't think Will is the one you should be worried about right now. Sami folds her arms, raising an eyebrow as she looks at Abby incredulously. SAMI: Oh really? And just who should I be worried about? ABBY: Nick. As Abby says this, Nicole opens the door to her office, not hiding her irritation at Sami's presence. NICOLE: Abby's right. You should worry about Nick. Nicole looks over to Abby, exhausted, and worried. NICOLE: He just declared himself CEO of Titan Industries. Sami looks back at Nicole, jaw dropped, as Abby's eyes widen, looking over to Sami with the same surprised face. ---

    I expect he’s working with Billie to find some kind of backdoor way to get the ISA off Steve’s back without actually killing him, and he’s hidden Paul and Will away somewhere for the time being.

    Lucas did bring it up to Kate on Monday during their 6-hour-long chat in sub-zero weather outside the mausoleum, but that's the last anyone's mentioned them.
