  1. EPISODE 78 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: ML Cooks & C. Nathaniel Richardson Kim sits quietly in Theresa's hospital room, watching her comatose daughter. She looks on, visibly pained by her daughter's condition, as she holds her daughter's limp hand. The sound of the heart monitors beep behind Theresa, the only sound in the room. As Kim squeezes Theresa's hand, the door opens, causing a focused Kim to jump slightly, as she turns her head toward the opening door. Kayla walks slowly in to see her sister and niece. Kim quickly wipes away tears as she greets her sister. KIM: Uh, Kayla! Hi! Kayla smiles with a tempered smile as she walks over to her sister, putting a hand gently on her shoulder as they both watch Theresa's lifeless body. KAYLA: Hey Kim. How are you holding up? KIM: Ohh, you know. Same as always. You? KAYLA: Well, actually...I'm glad I found you. I wanted to tell you before I told Roman or Ma. Kim turns around to face Kayla, a worried look on her face. KIM: Kay? Is everything alright? KAYLA: Oh yeah! No, everything's fine! Don't worry...I...I just have some...well...big news. Kim smiles, a bit confused. Anticipating the worst, she asks her sister the obvious question. KIM: Well...what is it? Kayla breathes in deeply and, taking Kim's hand in hers, makes her announcement. KAYLA: I'm leaving Salem...tonight. Kim looks on, shocked into speechlessness. --- In the hospital cafeteria, Roman stands in the doorway, confused by Valerie Grant's greeting. Marlena stands by Valerie, attempting to figure out how intervene. ROMAN: I...I'm sorry? VALERIE: Chris? Don't you remember me? Valerie Grant. Marlena cuts in to try to stop the situation from escalating. MARLENA: I...uh, think you should know that-- ROMAN: ...Ahh, it's alright, Doc. I remember Valerie. I just can't figure out who de hell she think I am. Valerie furrows her brow slightly, unsure what's going on. VALERIE: What do you mean? You're Chris Kositchek. I mean, you sure look like him, I... ROMAN: Valerie, I'm Roman Brady. You...do remember me, don't you? Valerie looks stunned, now even more confused as she looks Roman up and down, before turning to look at Marlena, who stands, nodding in agreement with Roman. --- Lucas looks around at Sheryl's office, seeing Jordan and a stranger, Jerome sitting all around. He asks Sheryl again his previous question. LUCAS: I asked you what the hell was going on, Sheryl. Now come on! Answer me! Sheryl looks on with a raised, sarcastic eyebrow from behind her desk as Jordan and Jerome look back and forth between Lucas and Sheryl. SHERYL: Obviously, it's a meeting. LUCAS: Between your friend, who's a physiotherapist, and...who are you exactly? Jerome stands up and immediately extends a hand to Lucas, rather formally, catching Lucas off guard. JEROME: My name is Jerome Grant, and you are...? Lucas looks at Jerome with a baffled look as they shake hands, Lucas moving his hand towards Jerome's very reluctantly. LUCAS: Lucas Horton...what...exactly are you doing here, exactly? Sheryl pipes up as the two men firmly shake hands, interjecting from her seat. SHERYL: Ah HE...is an old friend of Jordan's and I. He's...uh...here to help me with a project. LUCAS: A project? SHERYL: Yes, honey. Uh...look, can I...talk to you a second outside? Lucas looks over to Sheryl and nods, unsure what on earth is going on. LUCAS: Uh...sure. Yeah. Sheryl steps out from behind her desk and heads hastily for the door, grabbing Lucas' hand as she heads out. She turns quickly back toward Jordan and Jerome. SHERYL: Great! Okay you two...try not to kill each other while we're gone, yeah? Sheryl flashes a cheeky smile and winks at Jordan and Jerome. Jordan glares back, irritated by Sheryl's behaviour, as Sheryl shuts the door behind them. Jordan immediately turns to Jerome, hissing as she points toward the door. JORDAN: That was too damned close, Jerome? What the Hell are we gonna do? And why the hell are you really here anyway?! --- --- Nicole stands in Town Square, arms folded, her face showing her displeasure plainly to Eric, who separates from a hug with his old friend, Noelle. NOELLE: Uh...Eric? ERIC: Yes, Noelle? NOELLE: This wouldn't happen to be someone you know, would it? Nicole steps forward, never taking her eyes off Noelle as she extends a hand to greet her. Noelle looks cautious as she meets Nicole's hand. They shake, Nicole squeezing Noelle's hand a little too firmly, causing Noelle to resist wincing. NICOLE: Nicole Walker. Eric's girlfriend. You know what that means, don't you? Noelle rolls her eyes quickly as she responds curtly to Nicole. NOELLE: Oh I know well. NICOLE: And you are? NOELLE: Noelle Curtis. Childhood friend of Eric and Sami. Oh, and... Noelle holds up her hand, showing her diamond wedding band off to Nicole. NOELLE: ...a married woman. Happily. Married woman. Nicole looks on, slightly embarrassed at having given Noelle a hard time, but refuses to let it show, and leans back, folding her arms again with a disapproving look on her face. Eric looks on, surprised. ERIC: Married? Noelle turns to face Eric momentarily, putting a hand on his shoulder. NOELLE: I'll explain later. Let's have lunch tomorrow? ERIC: Sure. NOELLE: Great. Good seeing you, Eric. Noelle turns and nods, her face turning quickly to a scowl as she looks to Nicole. NOELLE: Nnnnicky. Nicole doesn't respond verbally to Noelle as Noelle steps past her on her way out, but her returning scowl follows Noelle out as well. Eric observes disapprovingly, and once Noelle's out of earshot, he immediately cuts into Nicole. ERIC: What was that? Nicole, that was unbelievable! Nicole turns back to Eric, surprised and annoyed by Eric's reaction. NICOLE: Excuse me? You wanna stand there trying to tell me how unreasonable I'm being? You're the one who told me that this relationship will never go anywhere because you're so attached to a church that's rejected you because they can't prove you were raped! ERIC: How dare you? NICOLE: I could ask you the same thing. Don't waste my time moralizing about God's laws when you can't even figure out that He's obviously not here for you. ERIC: Nicole! Nicole holds her hand up to stop Eric from speaking. Getting emotional, she finishes. NICOLE: Seriously, Eric, you know what? If you ever find your brains, come find me at the station, figuring out who my new boss is. Excuse me. Nicole storms off, leaving a stunned Eric behind, looking on as she walks away. --- Marlena steps over to guide Roman in closer, as Valerie stumbles over her words, trying to form an apology to Roman. VALERIE: I...I don't understand. Wh...what's going on? MARLENA: Uhh...Roman...came back looking somewhat....different last time. He uh...he had an accident and... VALERIE: And came back looking like someone else? MARLENA: Well...it's a long story. VALERIE: I'd love to hear it. Marlena tries to shake the awkward moment she, Valerie, and Roman are sharing, and clasps her hands together tightly. MARLENA: Ah, well...we can maybe do that in my office? Valerie, I have something...important to talk with...both of you about? That...research I was hoping you could do? Valerie takes a moment, still transfixed by Roman's similarity to Chris, before she turns to Marlena, and nods in agreement. VALERIE: Ah, yes! Yes. Let's do that. Roman? ROMAN: Lead the way. Valerie looks Marlena's way, conveying her astoundment at the situation. Marlena motions to Valerie to head for the door after Roman, and she complies, with Marlena following close behind. --- Kim sits up in a chair beside Theresa's bed as Kayla sits down across from her. KIM: I...I don't understand, Kay. I mean...why are you leaving, it's so... KAYLA: Sudden? Yeah. Well, see John was in town for Brady's memorial service and...well, he asked me to come over with him to...Europe. KIM: Why? KAYLA: Well, it seems like Steve needs my help with something so...John's going to fly me out. Kim looks at Kayla, observing the concern in her eyes. She turns her head slightly and reaches out to hold her sister's hand. KIM: I know you wouldn't leave so suddenly without a good reason. So...is everyone okay? Should I be worried? I mean... KAYLA: No, no, no, no, no, no. Kim, no. Don't worry. In fact, when I get back, we may have some really good news for everyone. Kim smiles, squeezing Kayla's hand as Kayla puts her other hand over top of Kim's. KIM: I hope so. How long will you be away? Kayla shrugs, trying to fight tears off. KAYLA: Oh, I don't know. As long as it takes. Few weeks, few months. CAROLINE: Well, I hope it's sooner than that. I can only afford so many plane tickets to see my kids, you know. Kayla and Kim turn around to see Caroline standing in the doorway. KAYLA: Ma! CAROLINE: And just when were you gonna tell me you were leaving town? I had to hear it from Maggie. Kayla gets up from her seat and walks over to Caroline, giving her a big hug. KAYLA: I'm sorry, Ma. I just...it was so last minute, It's a bit of an emergency. CAROLINE: Why? What's wrong? Kayla hesitates to say anything, but continues. KAYLA: Nothing. Nothing's....wrong. In fact, if this all goes to plan, a lot of things may be right. Caroline looks on, a bit confused. KAYLA: Just...trust me, Ma. I'll be fine. I'll fill you in when I can. Caroline mulls it over a moment, before coming to accept Kayla's words, nodding before putting a hand on Kayla's shoulder. CAROLINE: Well...just make sure that you keep me updated on how Joey is doing, okay? KAYLA: I will. And I'm so sorry to just...up and leave like this. It's just... CAROLINE: Don't worry about it now. You can explain it to me later. Just be safe. Caroline and Kayla return to their hug, as Kim gets up and slowly comes over, wrapping her arms around Caroline and Kayla as well. They share a laugh as they cry softly. --- Jerome smiles and almost begins laughing aloud at Jordan's histrionics. Sauntering across the room, before leaning against Sheryl's desk casually. JEROME: You know? I almost miss your...melodramatic way, you know? Jordan rolls her eyes at Jerome, reacting with disgust at his coolness. JORDAN: Oh, don't you dare patronize me, Jerome. You know this isn't the first close call. JEROME: Oh, I know! That's why we need to begin meeting at a more discreet location. JORDAN: OH? Where's that, exactly? Jerome smiles cheekily. JEROME: Your place. Jordan's eyes widen in disbelief. JORDAN: Wha...Absolutely NOT! You can't... JEROME: Oh, I can. And I will. And I think that Sheryl would agree with me. Jordan folds her arms, shaking her head in disbelief. JORDAN: I cannot believe you. You know, now I remember why we broke up. Jerome keeps smiling, trying not to laugh. JEROME: Oh really? Why's that? JORDAN: Because you never take anything seriously. Nothing I say, nothing I do. Anything that happens is a joke. My reactions, my concerns. Look at you! You're trying not to laugh as we speak, I mean, I can't believe Sheryl still wants to work with you at all! JEROME: And yet, she does. And you're gonna have to get used to that. Jordan stands, displeased by Jerome's obstinance. ... Sheryl turns Lucas around abruptly and grabs the lapels of his suit, pulling him in for a quick kiss on the lips that's still full of passion. Lucas relaxes almost immediately. LUCAS: So...what's this...project? Sheyl leans back, slowly opening her eyes from her seductive kiss and smiles widely. SHERYL: Mmmm....I can't tell you yet. LUCAS: Oh? It's for me then? SHERYL: Suffice to say you'll be incredibly surprised...and VERY pleased that I didn't tell you anything right now. LUCAS: Ehhh, I like the sound of that. Sheryl giggles slightly, never taking her eyes off Lucas. SHERYL: I knew you would. Now you...get back to work. I gotta finish these plans up, okay? Sheryl jabs Lucas gently with her finger as she directs him away. Lucas reluctantly complies. LUCAS: Ohhh fine, if you insist. SHERYL: I do. Come on now, people will talk. LUCAS: Yeah, well, I'm their boss so they better not. I'll see you tonight? SHERYL: Always. The two kiss quickly as Lucas darts off down the hallway. The relief and relaxation as Sheryl sees Lucas leave is clear on her face, as she rolls her eyes back, shoulders dropping as she turns to head back into her office. SHERYL: God, I wish I could get away with drinking at the office sometimes. ... Jordan turns abruptly to Jerome and, holding back a bit, speaks to him. JORDAN: You know, I think we were doing pretty damn good without you. So you know how to manipulate a computer. So what? Sheryl opens the door at this moment and steps in in time for Jerome to respond. She hangs back to listen to him. JEROME: The difference is that without me, neither of you would have gotten out of that prison cell in Canada, you'd never have made it back into the States, and you never would have made it to Salem so you could go screw up your lives all over again. You want my honest opinion? You shoulda thanked me for saving your ass. And instead, you dump my ass for some cop? SHERYL: Far be it for me to interrupt a personal moment... Jordan and Jerome jump in surprise as Sheryl breaks up their tense moment. Sheryl calmly continues. SHERYL: ...But we had better get to work right now...or we are all going to end up right back in those prison cells. --- Kate sits in her office when her office phone rings. She quickly picks it up, hardly breaking her focus from her work. KATE: Ahh, I see you're at your desk for once, Francince...Lucas? Sure, let him in. Kate hangs up the phone, and a second later Lucas walks in, a concerned tension on his face and his walk that alarms Kate immediately. KATE: Rough morning? LUCAS: Oh yeah, we got problems. KATE: What kind? LUCAS: With Jordan and Sheryl, mom. I don't know how much longer I can keep up this charade. We need to stop them. NOW. ---
  2. EPISODE 75 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: ML Cooks & C. Nathaniel Richardson Sami stands in the DiMera living room, her arm being firmly grasped by Nick, who's attempting to stare her down. Sami glares back, determined with every fibre of her being not to allow him to. SAMI: Nick. Let go of my arm. NICK: Will you at least hear me out. Sami finally wavers, looking down at where Nick's grasping her arm. She sighs in defeat. SAMI: Sure. Nick releases Sami as she forcefully breaks away from him simultaneously. She steps back away from Nick as she looks back toward him, while holding her arm where Nick held it. SAMI: Who knew such a skinny little rat had such a strong grip. Ow. NICK: I'll take it as a compliment. Sami snaps, cutting Nick off before he can continue his 'witty' banter. SAMI: Just what do you want, Nick? Nick ensures the doors to the living room are shut and saunters ever-so-slowly over to the sofa. He casually sits down and looks at Sami. NICK: We had an agreement, did we not? SAMI: What do you mean? I've done everything you've asked of me. NICK: Except...neither you, nor Kate have offered Gabi that modelling job I requested you to give her. Sami rolls her eyes at Nick's persistent request. --- At the board room at University Hospital, the crowd of staff are aghast at Dr. Kayla Brady's revelation that she will be quitting her position as Chief of Staff. MAXINE: Dr. Brady, how soon are you leaving us? KAYLA: Today will be my last day. The crowd is even more shocked by this turn of events. Kayla immediately tries to cool down the crowd, talking over each other in shock and dismay. KAYLA: Everybody! Calm down! It's...not a big deal, I swear! MARLENA: Kayla, what's wrong? Why are you leaving? Kayla tries to hold back, recalling John's request that she tell nobody of her plans. She inhales deeply as she answers Marlena. KAYLA: I...have a bit of a...personal trip I'm going to need to take. I'll be in Africa for the forseeable future with Joey and Steve. MAXINE: Well we, at the hospital, are gonna miss you, Kayla. And I am gonna throw you one hell of a going-away party. The crowd cheers Maxine's plan on as Kayla stands awkwardly, again trying to silence the crowd. KAYLA: I'm...I'm sorry to disappoint anyone...but I will be leaving tonight. There won't be time for a goodbye party. However... Kayla has to take a moment over the sound of disappointment from the staff. She holds her hands up once again to try to calm the crowd. KAYLA: However...I do have some great news, especially for those of us who have been at University Hospital for a long time. I'd like to welcome our new chief of staff. An old friend of ours with an extensive resume here and in Europe. It's my honour to welcome back to Salem, and to University Hospital...Dr. Valerie Grant. The door to the board room opens as the group filling the room turn to see Valerie standing in the doorway. Applause slowly builds in the room as Valerie steps in, smiling widely as she looks around the room. --- --- Rafe and Jordan lie in bed together at Rafe's, cuddled naked together comfortably in their sleep. Rafe begins to stir from his sleep, which rouses Jordan. She turns to face Rafe, who puts his arm around her, as they gently kiss good morning. RAFE: Well if there was a better way to wake up, I sure don't know about it. Jordan giggles as she quickly kisses Rafe again, never taking her smiling eyes off his. JORDAN: I could get used to this being every morning. RAFE: Mmm...I like the sound of that. As they roll over again, Rafe now on top of Jordan under the sheets as they begin to kiss more intensely, their eyes shut as Jordan wraps her arms around Rafe's neck, pulling him in closely to her. This would be when Jordan's cell phone begins ringing, prompting Rafe and Jordan to stop suddenly, but after a moment's shock, Jordan realizes who it likely is and chooses to ignore it, grabbing the back of Rafe's head and pulling it back towards her. After another moment of kissing, Rafe leans back up again. RAFE: Aren't you gonna get that? JORDAN: No. Another kiss, Jordan is determined to distract Rafe from her ringing phone, but Rafe stops again, starting to exasperate Jordan. RAFE: Jordan, that could be important. JORDAN: It isn't. Trust me. I just wanna focus on you right now. Jordan looks seductively at Rafe, her hands running up and down his chest and shoulders. Rafe smiles back at Jordan, as Jordan's phone goes silent, the call going to voice mail. Rafe and Jordan get back into the mood, as Rafe leans in again, starting to kiss down Jordan's neck and slowly kissing down it toward her chest, causing Jordan to stir pleasurably. Jordan's phone begins to ring again. This time Rafe immediately slumps down in frustration, while Jordan flops back as well, staring at the ceiling. JORDAN: I guess I have to get that now. RAFE: Yyyup! Rafe sighs as he rolls back over off of Jordan, who leans over to grab her phone off the bedside table. Naturally, it's Sheryl. ... Sheryl sits at her office desk, dressed impeccibly as always. She sits in her office chair, relaxed, and looking over at someone sitting across from her on the other side of her desk. SHERYL: Finally! ... JORDAN: Ugh...Hi. ... SHERYL: Don't be so happy to hear from me! Where were you? ... JORDAN: Just in bed, I'm not due into work for another two hours so...we were taking it easy. ... SHERYL: What can I say? I've got a gift for timing. Listen, I need you to head over to Titan, ASAP. ... JORDAN: Now? ... SHERYL: No time like the present. I got a surprise for you. ... Jordan's eyes widen, realizing what this means. She stutters a bit before speaking, trying to hide her sudden panic from a concerned Rafe. JORDAN: I'll...I'll be right there. Hanging up her phone, Rafe looks on with concern as Jordan immediately starts to get up from her bed. Rafe paws at her in a vain attempt to keep her in bed. RAFE: Wait, wait, wait, you're not going so soon, are you? We were just getting started! JORDAN: I know, and I'm sorry, but...patient at the hospital is in a...really really bad way right now and they need me there early. Rafe sighs, not able to argue with Jordan's job. He starts to get up from the bed himself, reluctantly. RAFE: Fair enough. But I think we've got time for some time alone, still. Jordan goes pilfering through her drawers quickly, looking for clothes for work and not paying attention as Rafe walks over behind her, still naked himself. JORDAN: No we don't, I really need to go. Jordan stops suddenly and turns back toward the door, bumping immediately into an upright, smiling Rafe. She looks up in a bit of shock at him as he holds her arms in his hands. RAFE: I can help wash your back at least. Jordan smiles back, almost giggling at Rafe's suggestion. --- Sheryl puts down her phone at the office and looks back at her guest. She laughs as she begins to speak to him. SHERYL: I caught her in a bit of a...personal moment. The man she talks to looks back her way, having a bit of a chuckle as he replies to her. SHERYL: You know, it's good to have you back with us, Jerome. Now our plans are finally gonna start to really gel. You know? Jerome looks back from the chair opposite Sheryl, hands clasped together, one leg crossed over the other casually as he sits in his smartest pinstripe suit. JEROME: Well, let's hope Jordan thinks so. Otherwise you may find youself in over your heads, and I guarantee you, you'll end up drowning. --- Valerie steps up the head of the table in the board room, and begins to address the group. VALERIE: Well, I told you I'd come back, I just...didn't expect it to take so long! Everyone laughs, including Valerie, as she continues on, in a more serious tone. VALERIE: But in all seriousness, I am thrilled and honoured to return to University Hospital. I spent a very long time away, and I've missed seeing so many familiar faces. I'm so glad to be back! the crowd applauds, as Valerie looks around, a smile on her face. VALERIE: I would like to thank Dr. Kayla Brady for recommending me for this position. I know we haven't seen each other in a long time, but I'm grateful that you thought of me, and I will do my best not to disappoint you. Kayla and Valerie hug, as the crowd applauds again, and Marlena heads up to greet her old friend. MARLENA: Hello, stranger! VALERIE: Marlena! Ohh it's so good to see you again! How are you? MARLENA: I've been well. Lots has happened since I last saw you! The two women laugh as Marlena and Valerie stand, holding each other's hands. VALERIE: Well, listen, I'd love to catch up with you, if you're able to. Maybe we can meet up today for lunch? MARLENA: I'd love to, but I'm meeting Roman for lunch already. Unless you'd want to join us. I know it's been an eternity since you've seen him! VALERIE: I'd LOVE to! Absolutely! Are you two still married? Marlena looks off to the side whimsically, and answers with a bit of a laugh, as she turns to head out of the room, putting her hand on Valerie's shoulder. MARLENA: That's...a very, very long story. Valerie looks on, a bit confused as the two women walk toward the door. --- Sami plays cool with Nick, though she's clearly exasperated by his persistence. SAMI: We've played this game before, Nick. Remember? You trying to get Gabi a modelling job so that you could whisk her away to New York and live happily-ever-after with my son's baby? And how did that turn out, exactly? NICK: I dunno, you tell me. SAMI: As I recall, it went over as well as...well (laughs) a giant boulder. NICK: Don't try to be clever, Sami. It doesn't suit you. That's more of a...Nicole thing. Sami glowers at Nick, unable to resist his obvious baiting. She bites back loudly. SAMI: Say what you need to say and get out, Nick! Nick doesn't move from the sofa, instead smiling widely, knowing that he got a rise out of Sami. NICK: Offer Gabi a modeling contract. Make her a contract, have me vet it. If you get sneaky, I'll catch it, so don't try to put any clause in there that could upset me. Because you don't want me upset, Sami. Sami rolls her eyes and folds her arms, knowing Nick's won. SAMI: Fine. I'll draw it up. Now get out. Sami grabs her bag and heads to the door, opening it, then standing by it and motioning to Nick to leave. Nick gets up but turns away from her, facing the doorway to the garden, pinching the bridge of his nose, but trying to hide it from Sami, who senses something is off. She steps forward slightly, trying to catch Nick's attention. Nick is distracted by the surge of pain in his head. SAMI: Did I stutter? Nick draws himself up and turns around, still feeling the pain in his head, but working his best to not appear weakened. NICK: Just remember, don't even think about double-crossing me, or you'll have an awful lot to answer for, to a lot of people. See ya! Nick waves, and sets off walking casually out the door of the DiMera living room, as Sami rolls her eyes. She sighs heavily as she grabs her bag, and leaves the living room herself, shutting the living room door behind her. --- Jordan storms into Sheryl's office, visibly irritated by being summoned yet again. She sighs audibly as she greets Sheryl. JORDAN: You summoned, m'lady? SHERYL: I told you I had a surprise for you. Jordan stops as her face drops, as the colour drains from it, looking down as the chair in front of Sheryl's desk turns around slowly. Jerome appears, smiling slyly as he does. JEROME: Hey stranger. JORDAN: Jerome.... Jordan breathes in deeply, trying to maintain as the shock hits her. ---
  3. EPISODE 74 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: ML Cooks & C. Nathaniel Richardson At what is for now Titan TV, Nick smiles smugly while lounging in a chair opposite Nicole's desk. Grabbing his laptop bag as he pulls out his tablet, he taps and slides his finger across the screen before showing Nicole footage of their exchange up to now. NICOLE: You....what? NICK: I have it all right here. See, I've got eyes, Nicole. Everywhere. You know, once you master the art of hacking, you really can do anything! It's crazy! The colour drains from Nicole's face, as Nick puts his tablet back in his bag, and pulls out a flash drive from his bag, placing it on the desk before a stunned and terrified Nicole, who was just caught by Nick's surveillance equipment admitting to hiding the documents proving Eric was drugged. Nicole gulps audibly before responding to him with as strong, but cool a voice as she can muster, which comes off more upset and wavering than she'd like to believe. NICOLE: What do you need me to do, Nick? Nick nods, still smiling as Nicole squirms, hating cowtowing to her blackmailer's increasing demands. NICK: Much better. Everything you'll need is on that flash drive. Just remember to destroy it when you're done. Have a great day, Nicole! Nicole holds up the flash drive, looking it over as Nick grabs his bag and leaves Nicole's office. Nicole holds it firmly in her fist, silently cursing Nick. She sits down at her desk and thinks aloud. NICOLE: There has GOT to be a way to trap that little rat in his own game. But he's on the side of the good guys...how the hell does that work? Nicole shakes her head as she puts the flash drive into her computer and waits for it to load. --- Will walks down the hallway towards his new office at EnerNext, holding a coffee mug in his hand, before stopping at the door. He turns the doorknob and steps in, jumping back upon seeing Alex standing inside. ALEX: AH! Will! I was looking for you. Will stands at his doorway, keeping a goofy smile on his face, stunned by Alex's presence in his office. --- Laura walks off the elevator at University Hospital and stops at the nurses' station. Maxine greets her immediately with a warm smile. MAXINE: Well! Good morning, Dr. Horton. How's it going? Laura smiles, but with a tension in her face that Maxine can't quite put her finger on. LAURA: Oh, just fine, Maxine. Uh...you haven't seen Dr. Jonas around anywhere, have you? MAXINE: No, he's taken a late start today. In fact he's requested to work evenings all week. Should I have him get ahold of you when he comes in? LAURA: Yes, if you don't mind. Thanks! MAXINE: Anytime, Dr. Horton. Oh! And, uh, by the way, there's a very improtant meeting at 10:45 in the board room. Laura looks up from her mail, a bit surprised, but smiles Maxine's way. LAURA: Oh. Alright, thanks. Any idea what it's about? Maxine shrugs dismissively. MAXINE: I dunno, usually it's about not wasting paper in the photocopier and boring budget updates. I wouldn't worry too much. LAURA: Heh, alright. Thanks again, Maxine. MAXINE: Have a good day, honey. Laura steps away from the nurses' station and over to the coffee machine. Pouring herself a cup, she sighs heavily while looking over to see none other than Liam talking with one of the doctors at the opposite end of the room. Laura looks on momentarily, before muttering to herself. LAURA: Alright, Laura. Keep calm, and tread lightly. Daniel may be able to help you keep on eye on Liam, but don't overplay your hand. Jenn and JJ's safety depends on it. --- Brady wakes up, pale and sweaty, to find a tray of breakfast food arranged beside his bed, a note laid down beside his plate of eggs, bacon and toast. Brady rubs the sleep from his eyes and reads the note carefully, his vision still not the greatest. Figured you'd want a nice breakfast. If you need anything, just holler. Anita Brady tries to get up from his bed but quickly realizes he can barely move them, after days of bed rest. As he tries to shuffle over to his breakfast, Anita walks in, hearing the rumbling. ANITA: Oh good, you're up. Here, I wasn't sure if you'd be able to reach the food, but I knew that you'd better eat something or you'd shrivel up and die. Anita rushes in and grabs the tray from the TV dinner table set up beside the bed. She quickly pops the tray on Brady's lap. BRADY: Well, I'm not so sure I'm not gonna shrivel and die yet. ANITA: Don't talk like that. You're looking better every day. BRADY: You know, I'm...I'm still not hungry. I feel so... ANITA: That's probably you coming down from your drugs. Brady looks up, shocked that Anita was even aware of his relapse. BRADY: What? How...? How did you even know I-- ANITA: The doctor told me during his house call. You had a rapid heart beat and dialated pupils. He figured you were high when you ended up in the water. Honestly, from what that doctor told me, it's a miracle you're even alive. Brady looks up at Anita, alarmed by her sombre statement. --- --- Anita sits at the edge of Brady's bed, conversing with him about his situation. Brady looks at Anita with a concerned look. BRADY: What do you mean, lucky to be alive? ANITA: You showed up washed ashore by the lake. Limp as a fish. I thought you'd drowned, but thankfully...I'm a retired nurse so... Brady flops down, exhausted, in the bed. Looking at the ceiling before inhaling deeply and shutting his eyes, trying to soak in each breath. BRADY: Why don't I feel so lucky? ANITA: Probably withdrawals. And your body's probably weak. Lucky for you, I managed to get your body warmed up, or that cold lake water would've killed you before the withdrawal symptoms ever could. BRADY: Great. (sigh) I don't think I wanna eat. ANITA: I'll leave it here for you anyway. You might get hungry later. But you do need to eat. Anita gets up and heads for the door, stopping and turning back, as though remembering something. ANITA: I'll make you a pot of tea, that might help. Brady continues to stare blankly at the ceiling. BRADY: I...sure. Anita stands in the doorway and smiles. ANITA: I'll be back in a minute. As Anita walks out, Brady summons the strength to sit up again in the bed. Looking around the room, he looks out the window overlooking the lake. The images flood back in his mind of the night of his accident. His harsh words for Theresa. The sound of his car speeding into the icy water. He shudders as he relives the moment of panic, recalling the impact. He flops back in bed, squinting his eyes shut, as if shutting his eyes will wipe the memories away. --- Sami stands in the DiMera living room, standing before the desk. She closes up her briefcase after filing away some papers, and putting her tablet inside her purse, as she hears the living room doors swing open. She continues preparing, assuming EJ is at the door to motivate her to get a move on. SAMI: I'll be there in a sec, EJ, just gotta... Sami turns around and jumps back immediately upon realizing Nick is at the door, not EJ. NICK: Oh come on, Sami! I'm way skinnier than EJ. But I appreciate the compliment. He's a looker, that one! Sami looks on, eyes squinting with malice. SAMI: What do you want, Nick? NICK: Just wanted to have a little talk with you. SAMI: Well, I don't have time right now. I have to get to the hospital, as a matter of fact. Sami tries to walk out, appearing busy as she collects her things. Nick grabs Sami's arm to stop her, causing Sami to stop in her tracks, a bit of a shiver as she looks at Nick with an insane contempt. Nick looks back, an arrogant, dangerous nonchalance in his eyes. NICK: Not so fast, Sami. This will only take a minute. And I think it's in your best interests, and Kate's...and Gabi's...if you stuck around for....just a minute. Don't you think? Sami continues to stare him down as Nick retains his firm grasp on her arm. --- Nicole sits at her office desk and looks down at the flash drive Nick's given her. NICOLE: (sigh) Alright. Let's see what dirty little secrets you have locked inside you. Nicole holds the drive in her hand before rolling her eyes. NICOLE: Although, knowing Nick, he's probably just loaded a virus onto this thing to wipe my hard drive clean. Oh well, I'll just expense a new one with my new boss, I guess. With a bit of a laugh, Nicole plugs the flash drive into her computer. She talks herself through the process as though she's at a slot machine in Vegas. NICOLE: Alright, baby, show Mama the money.... Nicole looks on with laser-focus as the document list appears on her monitor. Clicking on the first document, she waits with baited breath as the document loads on her screen. She inhales deeply as she soaks in the information. NICOLE: My God. Victor, you're going DOWN. Nicole smiles a satisfied smile as she reads on. --- Will relaxes a moment, miraculously keeping his coffee cup in tact as he steps inside his office toward Alex. WILL: I...Alex. I...sure, what do you need? ALEX: Come here. Alex opens a folder as Will steps close to him. Alex leans in close to him, causing Will to tense up. Alex begins to show him a document for Will to work on. ALEX: I'm gonna start you off slowly, just to get your feet wet, so...here...is a press release we'll be sending out tomorrow regarding the property acquisition problems we're having. As Alex speaks,Will feels Alex's body move in close to him, his breath on his neck, and every touch, no matter how inadvertent, excites him. Will breathes in deeply to try to relax himself, all the while, so focused on holding himself back, that he barely listens to Alex. ALEX: Okay, so... Will sits himself down at his desk to look over the file, as Alex crouches down beside him. Will sets his coffee on the table and leans in close again, as Alex explains the file. ALEX: So essentially, you'll be editing this for time, and we need this to read more like progress is being made on this front. We can't let the press see that we're stagnant on this issue. Will moves his arm over to point to a piece of this document. WILL: Right, so, here... Will clips his coffee mug as he points over the folder and knocks it off his desk...and all over Alex's shirt. Alex jumps back and Will jumps up from his seat. WILL: Oh God. I'm... Alex looks himself over, holding back a curse as he tries to undo his tie and shirt before the heat of the coffee burns him. ALEX: Ow Ow ow ow ow! WILL: Ahhh I'm sorry, here, here, here, let me get that off...you... As Will jumps over and helps peel Alex's wet shirt off him, they both stop a moment. Will looks down at Alex's body and swallows hard. He stutters as he tries to speak. WILL: I...I'm so sorry. I just...I... Alex laughs a bit, looking at an obviously embarrassed Will. ALEX: Don't worry. I'm...a klutz half the time myself. Uh...look. Let me...go change. I bring a change of clothes usually just in case...a pen explodes...bit of my lunch falls on me... WILL: Some idiot newbie spills coffee on you on the first day. Alex smiles, putting a hand on Will's shoulder in reassurance. ALEX: Nah, come on. Don't be so hard on yourself. Will. I'm not gonna fire you for this. If I was going to, I'dve fired myself last year. Okay? Will nods sheepishly. Alex now puts both hands on Will's shoulders, looking up at Will to try to convince him to look up his way. Will finally does, and their eyes lock. Will's defenses go down and he smiles at Alex, they both laugh gently at their situation, as Will's eyes get distracted by Alex's shirtless body. --- Marlena arrives at University Hospital's board room to find it filled with people from all over the hospital. She quickly walks over to Laura, who looks over and greets Marlena. LAURA: Good morning. I take it you got word about the meeting? MARLENA: Yes, I did. It's unusual of them to ask so many people to one of these meetings, so I'm rather curious what it could be about. LAURA: Sounds serious. MARLENA: It very well could be. Laura looks over to see Jennifer walk into the room with Liam in tow. Laura stares with a deeply troubled look, which Marlena immediately picks up on. MARLENA: Laura...are you alright? Laura holds her gaze a moment longer before responding, looking Marlena's way only as she finishes speaking. LAURA: I'm fine. I'm...just fine. MARLENA: Why don't I believe you? Laura smiles and tries to reassure her friend, but is barely able to reassure herself. LAURA: Don't worry. I'll be just fine. Marlena looks on, deciding to drop it, as the door closes behind a newly arriving Kayla, who calls out to the room for their attention. KAYLA: Good morning, everyone! Let's get started! Kayla walks over to the head of the board room table. She remains standing as she speaks to the crowd gathered in the room. KAYLA: So...you're probably wondering why I've called this meeting this morning. And I do want to thank you all for coming out on such short notice....but I am...officially announcing my resignation as Chief of Staff at University Hospital. The crowd look on, stunned by Kayla's announcement. ---
  4. EPISODE 64 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: ML Cooks & C. Nathaniel Richardson Jordan sits attentively at her desk at the hospital, waiting on Sheryl to fill her in on what the next step of their plan is. JORDAN: Okay. Tell me, what's this great plan of yours? SHERYL: Simple. I made a phone call today, to an old friend of ours. Jordan's brow furrows, as she pulls her glasses off her face. JORDAN: An old friend? Sheryl leans in, smirking confidently at Jordan as she quietly tells her the name of their old friend. SHERYL: Jerome Grant. Jordan leans back, surprise plain on her face as the news hits her. --- Sonny picks up his cell phone from the table at his apartment. Will and Gabi are milling about making dinner as Sonny looks back at them. He tries to be subtle as he makes his phone call to Victor. ... Victor picks up his office phone at Titan, standing at his desk, and casually answers. VICTOR: Victor Kiriakis. ... SONNY: I need to see you immediately. We have to talk. Alone. ... VICTOR: I won't be here much longer. Meet me at the office before we go to Brady's memorial. ... SONNY: See you then. Sonny turns to grab his jacket from the closet, and calls out to Gabi and Will. SONNY: I have to go for a minute....there's a...uh...problem with a shipment at the club. Meet you at Town Square? WILL: Alright. GABI: We're just finishing up lunch before we go. You sure you don't want a sandwich for the road? SONNY: No, I'll be fine. I can grab something fast at the club before the service. GABI: Okay! WILL: See you soon. Love you! SONNY: Love you! Bye, guys! WILL & GABI: Bye!! As Sonny shuts the door, his positive demeanour immediately vanishes, as he sighs. SONNY: Dammit, Uncle Vic. I'm not gonna let you take Will down this road. Not in a million years. --- John arrives at Brady's memorial service, which is still being set up in the square. Spotting Kayla with Roman, John walks over casually to greet his friend. KAYLA: John! So good to see you! I'm...so sorry to hear about Brady. John and Kayla embrace warmly, as Roman looks on with a faint smile. JOHN: Good to see you too, Kay. Appreciate it. How's everyone holding up? KAYLA: Ah, well,you know...as good as can be expected. JOHN: Understood. Listen...uh...Roman, can your sister and I have a little chat alone for a sec, I have something....kind of important to discuss with her. Roman nods in agreement, collecting himself after his memory lapse minutes before. ROMAN: Sure thing, John. It's good to see you. JOHN: Same to you, man. John and Roman exchange a quick slap-on-the-back hug as they go their separate ways. John casually grabs Kayla's arm as they walk towards a quieter corner of the square. KAYLA: Okay, this sounds really important if you're sequestering me away in dark, dark corners. What's going on? JOHN: Well... John stops for a moment and takes a quick look around to see who's paying attention as he speaks. JOHN: You know I've been away for awhile in Europe, right? KAYLA: Of course, we've all been worried about you. JOHN: Well...we need you to come with us. It's urgent. Kayla looks surprised and taken aback by John's request. --- Nick walks through the park just outside Horton Town Square. He calls Kate again. ... Kate is now in her own office, indignant and annoyed by Nick's repeated attempts to contact her at inopportune times. KATE: What? ... NICK: Now, now, Kate. Is that any way to talk to someone who just got you exactly what you needed. ... KATE: You'd better pray your little trigger finger didn't just land us in the unemployment line. Victor saw I was calling you and put together that it was your tip that brought John to the board meeting today. ... NICK: Victor will only figure that out if you spill the beans. Which I know you won't since your very freedom depends on it. Am I right? ... Kate sighs into the phone, fed up of Nick's threats but incapable of lashing out. ... NICK: Now, sit tight, because now the real fun is gonna begin. And I'm going to make us gobs an gobs of money. ... Kate continues to stand by her desk, phone in ear, suspcious of every word coming from Nick's mouth but playing along. KATE: From your mouth to God's ear, my dear. ... Nick laughs softly, but almost maniacally. NICK: As long as you don't screw this up, everything you want can be yours. --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Og7-6YubuS4 --- Gabi and Will sit down to eat their lunch, as Gabi feeds Arianna. Gabi looks at Will, who seems zoned out a bit, not eating his lunch. Gabi waves her hand in front of his face. GABI: Hey! Earth to Will Will snaps back to reality and smiles, grabbing his sandwich from his plate. WILL: Sorry. Just...had a moment there. GABI: Where did you go just then? Will sighs and looks down at his sandwich, suddenly feeling not very hungry. He puts the food back down on his plate and looks up at Gabi. WILL: Was just thinking about Brady, and Theresa, and...just how stupid this all is. I mean, we could here today and gone the next...and for what? I mean, seriously, if we don't live our lives to their full potential every day...there's no guarantee there'll be another chance, you know? Gabi smiles and reaches her hand out across the kitchen table, placing her hand over Will's, and giving it a comforting squeeze. GABI: I know exactly what you mean, and if there's one good thing to come from all this, it's that we're remembering that, and that every day's a chance to make our lives better... Gabi looks at Ari, who's caught her attention, gurgling as she picks up a pea off her plate and puts it in her mouth. Gabi smiles as Will looks over to Ari as well. GABI: ...And for our daughter too. Just as Gabi says this, Will's phone rings. Grabbing it from off the kitchen table, Will looks at it, and sees Club TBD's number on the screen. Confused, he answers. WILL: (into phone) Hey, what's up? ... It's T, calling from the club, where a rush of rowdy customers are calling out to T, who's a bit frazzled behind the bar. T: Uh...hey, Will! It's T. Any idea where Sonny is? ... WILL: I...yeah, he's on his way to the club now, T. Didn't he just tell you that? ... T looks confused, looking over his shoulder as he speaks, holding up one finger to a customer. T: Uh, no. Sonny hasn't spoken with us since this morning, dude. Look, it's really busy at the club, and I can't get Sonny to answer his phone, so can you just let him know to come down here ASAP when he can? ... Will looks to Gabi, a look of concern now on his face, as he answers T in an almost half-listening way. WILL: ...yeah. Sure. K, Bye. ... Will hangs up, and furrows his brow, confused by the exchange he just had. WILL: Sonny never called anyone at the club. GABI: Okay, that's weird. WILL: Yeah, really. So, the question is, where the Hell IS he, and why didn't he want me to know about it? --- Kayla looks over her shoulder to check and make sure nobody's paying attention to her conversation with John. KAYLA: What do you mean? JOHN: I mean, we need you. Trust me. I can't tell you anything more than that it has to be you that comes with me. KAYLA: But....I mean, John, you can't expect me to just...up and abandon my job, my home... John holds his hand up to stop Kayla midsentence. Kayla stops herself but is still unconvinced. JOHN: I will cover your expenses, and the bills will get paid. Kayla looks down, shaking her head. John's eye remain locked on her, regardless. JOHN: I need your help. I'll even pay for Joey to come with you while you're away, we just need your help. KAYLA: Why can't you tell me now what's going on? Who it even involves. You keep saying 'we' but...I mean, are you there with Shane? Bo? (laughs) Steve?? Haven't heard from HIM in awhile! John leans over and almost whispers to her. JOHN: Yes. Kayla looks up suddenly, shocked by John's confession. JOHN: I can't say anything more than that. But trust me, this is just as much a professional request as a personal one. Now...can I trust you to be on the plane with me tomorrow? KAYLA: I...John, I can't just...go...I need to figure this out. JOHN:: I can arrange a plane out for you by the end of the week if that works better for you. KAYLA: Just....can you give me until tonight to think it over? John nods, reluctantly agreeing to Kayla's terms. JOHN: Sure. I'll wait. KAYLA: Thank you. Come on, let's join the others. The ceremony should be starting any minute now. John takes Kayla's arm and escorts her back into the crowd, he looks to her with a warm smile. JOHN: Sounds good to me. --- Sonny steps into Victor's office, where Victor stands before his desk, rifling through some papers. Noticing the door opening, Victor turns around to see Sonny. His greeting makes plain his sombre mood. VICTOR: Sonny. What was so urgent? Sonny breathes in deeply, mustering all his courage to stand up to his great uncle. SONNY: I heard your associate offered Will a job today. VICTOR: Ah, yes. Tyler ran it by me. He read an article Will wrote for his blog, said that was just the kind of angle we needed to promote our energy program at EnerNext. I figured you'd be thrilled that your fiance was able to get such a prestigious job so soon after graduating. Sonny steps toward Victor, trying hard to not come across upset. He smiles a bit, but is clearly stammering in frustration, as Victor speaks, he tries to get Victor to end his long speech. SONNY: I...uh...mmm...Uncle Vic, stop. Please. VICTOR: What is it? I thought you were proud of Will. SONNY: I am. And I'm thrilled that you all feel the same way. But you can't offer Will this job. You need to rescind that offer. --- Kim stands with her police escort, in front of Billie and Daniel at University Hospital by the doorway of Theresa's hospital room. She holds in her hand, a copy of the restraining order against Billie. BILLIE: You can't be serious, Kim. Billie snatches the paper from Kim's hand as she spits out her words. Kim looks into Billie's eyes with smug malice. KIM: 100% serious. You can't be within 100 feet of my little girl. BILLIE: Oh, your little girl, hm? You're never going to see has an adult woman, are you, Kim? You know, like, an autonomous person who can make her own decisions about who she befriends? Or who she confides in? Or who she trusts? Kim's cool toughness disappears in a flash as Billie cuts into Kim, suddenly emerges rage and vitriol as she stares Billie down and fires her own shot Billie's way, holding back the full volume of her anger. KIM: I will not have you talk to me about my daughter. You have no idea about how things really were in our home, and you're not about to give me lessons in being a mother now. BILLIE: Oh, right. Because you've done such a bang-up job! KIM: How dare you? Daniel steps in at this point to try to cool things down, but the two women's eyes never leave each other. Kim's police escort hangs back, trying not to get involved in case anything escalates. DANIEL: Ooookay, ladies. Let's take a step back from each other a minute before we say anything we'll regret. We ARE in a hospital, after all. Billie stands down a bit, turning to Daniel, a sarcastic smile on her face. BILLIE: Oh, don't worry, Daniel. Anything I have to say to Kim, I can say through my lawyer! Billie storms away, heading for the elevators, as Kim watches, a smile of satisfaction on her face, but she simultaneously breathes in deeply, as though it's all been a front. Daniel sees the emotion in her eyes and puts a hand on Kim's shoulder. DANIEL: Are you sure you're alright? Kim wells up a bit when Daniel speaks, she looks up at a concerned Daniel and smiles. KIM: Oh yeah. I'm fine. (sigh) Thanks! DANIEL: Alright. If you need to sit down a minute, you can use my office. Kim smiles and takes Daniel's hand, squeezing it. KIM: Thank you, Daniel. I'll be fine. Can I see my daughter? DANIEL: Absolutely. Daniel waves to the officer, who then steps away, heading for the elevator, as Daniel guides Kim into Theresa's room. As Billie waits for the elevator not far away, she looks on with pure disgust in her face. The elevator door opens, and Billie curses Kim before stepping on. BILLIE: I swear to God, Kim, you haven't beat me yet. ---
  5. EPISODE 63 Written by A. Washington-Beeby Story Consultants: ML Cooks & C. Nathaniel Richardson Kate, standing in the Titan board room with Victor, turns around and cancels the call quickly before she allows Victor to confirm that Nick was on the phone. KATE: Uh...what are you talking about? VICTOR: Oh don't play dumb with me, Kate. I saw Nick's name pop up on your phone in large print. And despite what you think, I haven't got cataracts just yet. KATE: Well, first of all, it's none of your business who calls me, and secondly, so what if Nick did call me? He is, after all, my employee. It was probably just a call about a product we're testing. Victor steps in close to Kate, in hopes of intimidating her. VICTOR: You'd better hope that's all it's about. I will be watching you after today, believe that. Kate stares back, not threatened by Victor's tactics. KATE: Duly noted. Kate grabs her bag and, with a flourish, slings them over her shoulder, sashaying out of the board room. Victor watches her head out, and scrunches his face slightly, indignant at his major loss. VICTOR: Damn it all. --- Billie walks through the 16th floor lobby of Titan, on her cell phone, as she prepares to leave the building. She has a worried look on her face as she talks to the person on the other end. BILLIE: (into phone) Yeah, I have a feeling Nick had a hand in this. But for the life of me, I can't tell what it is or how deep he is involved in this. But I'm certain it has something to do with the other two...Okay, I'll get back to you. Billie hangs up, and notices a text message on her phone from Daniel. u feeling any better now? Billie smiles, texting back: cup of coffee + an aspirin did the trick lol Billie pops her phone back in her bag, and smiles a bit as she steps onto the elevator to head down to her car. --- Jordan sits at her desk at the hospital, finishing up some reports, when she hears a knock at the door of her office. JORDAN: Come in. SHERYL: Hello, Stranger. Mind if I have a word. Sheryl steps in, and immediately incites a bit of anxiety in a previously relaxed Jordan. --- Jennifer stands before EJ in the DiMera living room, enraged by his nonchalance in the face of her worry for her daughter. JENNIFER: Come on, EJ. You're a father. Imagine if in a few years, Sydney just...took off one day to another country without saying a word to you. You'd be worried. EJ: If it was an actual cause for concern, yes. But this is not, Jennifer. This is work-related. You blowing this completely out of proportion. JENNIFER: No, see, that's where you're wrong, EJ. Because I know you manipulated the situation to benefit yourself. Just like you always do. EJ gestures in 'confusion' at Jenn's accusation. EJ: What are you even saying, Jennifer? How would I benefit from this in any way? JENNIFER: Oh my GOD, it's SO obvious. I have no idea why you're so hellbent on denying it. EJ: Deny WHAT?! Jennifer steps in close to EJ, her rage bubbling in the surface as she quietly lays into EJ. JENNIFER: That that little chat you had with Abigail last night? That was you convincing her to get on that plane today. One day after she's out of the hospital because of, what? Business? I'm sorry, but it reeks of manipulation and intimidation. In other words, every hallmark of the DiMera men. EJ: How fair of you, Jennifer. Jennifer steps back, raising her voice a bit again as she challenges EJ's insistence of innocence. JENNIFER: It's more fair than you deserve. Because I can tell that this is all just a set up so that you can win Abigail back for Chad. EJ: What?? Oh, come on, Jennifer, that's ridiculous. JENNIFER: (interrupting EJ) You heard me! You can't tell me that you had any other innocent motive for sneaking my daughter onto a plane at 5am so she can work intimately with your goons. Tell me, EJ, is Chad waiting for her in Italy too? EJ has full on lost his cool now, shouting over Jenn trying to stop her ranting to no avail. EJ: It was business! This was not some grand scheme cooked up for duplicitous purposes, Jennifer. She's an important part of our team, and she doesn't need Mummy to keep tabs on her every move! JENNIFER: I know one thing for sure, that if this was a simple business trip and nothing shady was going on, wouldn't I have heard about it by now? Something must have happened after Abby checked out, because I don't remember Sami talking about it last night at the hospital. At that moment, Sami steps into the living room, overhearing her name from the other side and looks Jenn's way with a look of interest. SAMI: Talk about what? Jenn turns around quickly to see Sami standing in the doorway, both her and EJ snapped out of their intense debate. --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Og7-6YubuS4 --- Jennifer looks to Sami standing in the doorway of the DiMera living room. Sami's surprised to see Jenn and wondering what Jenn's just said about her. JENNIFER: Sami! Do you happen to have a minute? We need to talk. SAMI: I...sure! You want to talk alone? JENNIFER: Oh no, no, EJ's heard what's on my mind already, he doesn't have to leave. EJ, collecting himself from his frazzled state, swallows visibly as he heads towards Sami, who, having heard the commotion from outside the door is rather uncomfortable as EJ approaches her, all of this in Jenn's line of vision. EJ: Well, actually, I am needed at the office, so I should go. You ladies enjoy your time together. EJ walks past Sami and hesitates as to whether to lean in for a kiss or not. He decides to go for it, but Sami lurches back away from him, causing EJ to retreat. Jennifer notices the tension and looks on with curiosity. EJ puts on his blazer and gives his farewells as he exits the room. EJ: Goodbye, Samantha. Jennifer. As EJ leaves, Jenn catches her breath, releasing a lot of the tension from the confrontation that just took place. After a second, Jenn looks back at Sami, as she points in the direction of where EJ was. JENNIFER: I'm....so sorry, Sami. I... Sami walks over to Jenn, concerned, putting a hand on her shoulder. SAMI: No, no. I...what's going on? Jennifer tries to hold back a bit of tearing up as she laughs a bit at the situation. JENNIFER: I could ask the same of you two. I mean...I...I know it's none of my business but-- SAMI: ...Don't even ask, Jenn. I really don't want to get into it. JENNIFER: Well, I understand that too. (sigh) Look, I came to see you because I...got up this morning and discovered my daughter was gone. And I know it was for work and I know...she's an adult and can make her own decisions but...I figured you would understand, as a mother, that-- SAMI: Wait, Abigail didn't tell you about the Rome trip? Jenn shakes her head, she looks down, a bit disappointed, but not blaming Sami. JENNIFER: No. She didn't. I know a lot of that is because she knows I'm not...too thrilled with her taking this job in the first place, but... SAMI: I'm sorry, Jenn. I should've...let you know. Like...a text or something. JENNIFER: No. (sigh) When I came here, I was upset and I was...blaming EJ for it because I just...I had this feeling that it's all this big...plan to get Abigail back on side so that Chad can move back in but... Sami looks at Jenn, shocked by Jenn's accusation. SAMI: He what? JENNIFER: I'm sorry. I know, that was...out of line of me to think that. SAMI: No, no, it seems...actually a...fairly reasonable jump to make. Especially with how much EJ's been doting on Abby lately. But...Jenn, I want to reassure you.I was the one who hired her. None of that had anything to do with EJ. (sigh) I know that...Chad did some pretty awful things before he went to Boston, but...I don't think EJ is plotting with his brother to get Abigail back. JENNIFER: Well, Sami, with all due respect, you tend to turn a blind eye to a lot of things the DiMeras do, and right or wrong I know that's because you love EJ and...nothing will change that. Sami looks a bit uncomfortable as Jenn brings up her relationship with EJ, but stifles herself from giving too much away. Jenn fiddles uncomfortably with her hands as she finishes speaking with Sami. JENNIFER: I just...I was hoping to...maybe open a door of communication between you and I. SAMI: That's fine. I understand. I will keep an eye out for Abigail for you. JENNIFER: Thanks. Jenn heads for the door slowly, unsure whether to give Sami a hug or not, but chooses not to. Instead grabbing her purse from the coffee table and walks away slowly. Jenn stops suddenly and turns back to Sami, who is still looking out the window. JENNIFER: Oh, and Sami. One thing. If you...ever need to talk to anyone...about...anything. I am here for you, too. Sami turns around to smile at Jenn, unsure to what Jenn's referring but grateful nonetheless. SAMI: Thank you, Jenn. Jenn smiles as she heads out the door. Sami turns back to the window, the smile fading from her face as she stares pensively out at the spring day before her. --- Sheryl saunters over to the chair opposite Jordan's desk in her office, and has herself a seat. Jordan tries to ignore her, but Sheryl stares straight into her eyes, patiently waiting for Jordan to react. Jordan tries to continue writing up her report at her computer but finally cracks. JORDAN: Can I help you? SHERYL: I thought you'd never ask! Jordan rolls her eyes before clicking at her computer, presumably to save her work, before wheeling away from the computer and stopping herself at the centre of her desk. Jordan leans in towards Sheryl with her hands clasped together, almost mockingly attentive. JORDAN: I'm listening! SHERYL:Good! Stay sitting down, you'll be glad you did when I tell you what we've pulled off. JORDAN: I'm waiting with baited breath. SHERYL: We did it. Titan TV is out of Victor Kiriakis' control as of ten minutes ago. Jordan's eyes widen, not sure whether she believes Sheryl's news or not. JORDAN: I...are you for real? This is happening. SHERYL: This is absolutely happening, Jordan. The board, with a little help from Nick Fallon, sided with us. The people of Salem are gonna know the truth about that damned oil sands project. Finally. It finally dawns on Jordan. She looks away momentarily as she allows the reality of the situation set in. JORDAN: Well I'll be damned. Nick Fallon wasn't playing us? SHERYL: So far, so good, eh? JORDAN: Yeah...so what's our next move then? Sheryl leans in towards Jordan and says in a bit more hushed tone. SHERYL: That is exactly what I want to talk about with you. --- Kayla, helping set up Brady's memorial service in town square,notices Roman looking blankly at Brady's portrait set up near Tom & Alice Horton's tree. She walks over to her brother and gently places a hand on his shoulder. KAYLA: It's hard to believe, isn't it? That Brady's gone? Roman stares at the picture, scanning every feature bit by bit. He finally turns to Kayla, and looks at her with a panicked expression. ROMAN: Kay, that...that's not Brady. Is...is it? Kayla looks at Roman, knowing that she'd heard about his memory troubles, but not that they had progressed so quickly. Kayla takes Roman's arm and squeezes it, almost cuddling it in an attempt to comfort him without smothering him. KAYLA: It's okay. That is Brady now. What do you remember him looking like? ROMAN: I...Kay, Brady's just a little kid. I remember him being so....young. He wasn't even school aged and now...why can't I fill that time in. Kayla sees her brother go deep into thought and pulls him in close, holding him as he zones out, trying in vain to fill the blanks in his memory. --- Billie steps off the elevator at the hospital and, upon seeing Daniel perched at the nurses' station, sneaks up behind him, covering his eyes with her hands. BILLIE: Guess who? DANIEL: Gah! I needed those! Billie laughs as she jumps back, and Daniel turns to see Billie. He smiles through his lingering hangover. BILLIE: You look like you could use an...Aspirin or...something. DANIEL: Yeaaah, Maxine already suggested that. I'm trying to avoid overmedicating myself, especially for... Daniel feels a bit of the dull, nagging headache pain hit him and holds his nose for a moment. Billie giggles. BILLIE: For...self-inflicted wounds. DANIEL: Yeah. BILLIE: Well, I'm gonna tell you right now that the only person suffering for your tenacity is you. So, I'd suggest giving in. DANIEL: Hey, who's the doctor here? Billie laughs heartily as they walk through the main room of that particular floor. As they approach the door of Theresa's room, the elevator door opens and Kim Brady emerges, a police escort in tow. She immediately spots Daniel and Billie and looks their way with a satisfied smile on her face. DANIEL: So you're here to see Theresa? BILLIE: Yeah. I'm hoping to get in to see her as much as possible, since Kim's threatening lawsuits and beheadings if I stand on the same floor as her. DANIEL: Just...don't let it get to you. She's concerned about her daughter, just like you are. I'm sure you're gonna be able to work it out. As Kim stops, standing behind Daniel and Billie, Daniel catches Kim out of the corner of his eye and turns to face her. Kim smiles as the policeman addresses them. POLICEMAN: Miss Billie Reed? Billie looks the policeman up and down before looking suspiciously at Kim. BILLIE: Can I help you, Officer? Kim holds up an envelope in Billie's face, an almost smug look on her face as she serves Billie. KIM: This would be a restraining order that says that you can't be within 100 feet of Theresa. ---
