Scriptwriter: Jeanne Marie FordSegment 1:
Sami calls for the guard - no one shows up. She wonders where everyone is. Marge walks up and taunts her. You thought you were going to get away with it, didn't you? You murdered my husband and you thought you wouldn't have to suffer a single minute. You are so wrong.
EJ paces in the courtroom. Where the hell is Kayla? Justin reminds him that they still have 10 mins before the hearing starts. Kayla rushes in and apologises for being late. I just wanted to go through Det Bernardi's autopsy report one more time. EJ - And do we have enough evidence to convince the judge to exhume the body?
Rafe is asleep - he recalls everything Marge said to him. He wakes up with a start. Nicole asks if he's okay.
JJ asks Theresa if he would know this man. She doubts he mixes it up with high school ??? JJ guesses she doesn't want to tell him because she met the guy at some dive bar. Theresa - You couldn't be more wrong. He's extremely successful. Now that I think about it, maybe you do know him.
Brady - Maybe I can never trust her. Maybe I'm making a big mistake. Jen is sorry. I don't know what to tell you. You're going to have to figure this out on your own. Brady knows. Jen - But if you're going to see Kristen just go into it with your eyes wide open.
The detective tells Eric and Dan all the evidence he collected was destroyed. When asked what happened he replies 'ask her!' and nods towards the door Kristen is hiding behind. A client came in trying to sic me on her cheating husband. I was referring her to a colleague when she knocked over my coffee and used this pad as a paper towel. This is all that's left of my work on your case. Eric - Everything you got from the hotel room was on there! Dan - There's no chance this can be salvaged? He doesn't know. Get her out of the bathroom and I'll see what I can do. She ran and locked herself in. Eric - Maybe she's scared. Dan - Let me see what I can do. He goes to the door. Ma'am - Nobody is mad at you. We understand it was an honest mistake. You can't stay in there all day so open this door.
Nicole - Do you have any idea how many people were pulling for you to get better? Now if it were me in that bed ... no, seriously, everyone knows how many friends I have in this town. And yes, selfishly, this is all about me. I can't stand to lose a single one of them. Rafe - Don't worry. You won't. So tell me, what's new and exciting in your life? Nicole - Not much. Working hard to get St Luke's school up and running. Rafe - I read about the reception. Nicole - Sami Brady strikes again. You must be thanking your lucky stars you got rid of that woman. Everything she touches goes straight to hell.
Sami - Guard! Marge - He must be on a break. Sami - How did you get in here? Marge - Everyone here loved Joe. How could they deny me a few moments alone with the woman who killed my husband in cold blood. She digs in her purse. Sami - Don't do this Marge. Marge - Oh relax. Do you think every woman carries a gun in her purse. I'm not like you. Sami - What are you doing here? Marge holds up a picture of Timmy. I came to give you this. As long as you're stuck staring at these 3 walls you should have a constant reminder of what you've done. Of course you don't have to listen to the sobs I hear all night long. Sami - I'm sorry. Marge - It's too late for sorry. You took my Timmy's father away from him and he'll never get him back. Never! Sami - I didn't mean for that to happen. If I hadn't thought that Rafe's life was ... Marge - Stop lying. Everyone knows the truth now. We've all seen the video of you attacking my husband weeks before you shot and killed him. You wanted him dead. Sami - No. Marge - What I want to know is why. I never realised you knew him. Why did you hate him so much?
Dan knocks again. You've got to come out sometime. Kristen slides a note under the door. Dan reads it. I'm too embarrassed. Eric decides to give it a try. Dan says he and Mason will see what they can salvage from this mess. Eric - Ma'am, it's Father Eric. I'm a priest. I've talked to many people from the other side of closed doors and what you've done pales in comparison to what I've heard. Kristen mutters - If you only knew. Eric - Ma'am, you've got nothing to be embarrassed about. Why don't you talk to me? Kristen knocks something over. Eric - Are you okay? What happened? Guys, we've got to get in here right now! Dan - It's okay. I'm a doctor. I can help you.Segment 2:
Kayla - The more I have looked over these surgical notes, the more I'm convinced that another autopsy would exonerate Sami. This is not a life-threatening wound. EJ - If the judge doesn't agree to exhume the body we can't prove it. Justin - Unfortunately the video of Sami attacking Bernardi doesn't just go to motive. It can be argued that it shows premeditation. So if we don't pull a rabbit out of the hat Sami is going to be looking at Murder One.
Sami - I didn't hate your husband. I didn't even know him. Marge - Then why did you attack him in the square that day. Sami - I can't explain it to you. I wish I could but I can't. Marge scoffs - That will really sway a jury. Sami - I didn't even know it was him until after ... Marge - Until after you pulled the trigger and shot him dead. And I should believe you, why? From the first moment we met you lied to me. And that's who you've been your whole life Sami Brady. A lying, trouble-making ... It doesn't matter that you're father is the commissioner or that you have all the DiMera power and fortune at your disposal. You killed a cop, not just any cop, but a father, a husband, a decorated hero and when the jury sees that video, you're done. You'll rot behind bars. Sami - You're wrong. Marge - Why are you so sure? Sami - Because I didn't do it. And they're going to find the weapon. They're going to find some sort of evidence that proves that I'm telling the truth. Marge - It sounds like somebody is starting to believe her own lies. I take it back. You don't deserve to touch my son's picture. I hope you never see your children again. She leaves.
Rafe - I wish I could talk to her. Nicole - No you don't. Look what happened when she came back into your life for like 10 secs. She's gone now and she needs to stay gone. Look what happened to Eric. Rafe - What? Nicole - He can't help being her twin. He worked for months to get that school open and right at his big moment she shoves her way in and gets arrested in front of the Bishop and half the town putting his whole career on the line. Rafe - He's a priest. Nicole - He likes being at St Luke's and when Bishop White mentioned that he might be transferring him, I told Eric this was all Sami's fault and he got all defensive and now things are weird between us. I hate it. Rafe - That drives you crazy, doesn't it. Nicole - Of course, he's my boss. What are you thinking? I think I know what you're thinking but not really knowing what you're thinking is driving me even crazier, so why don't you tell me what you're thinking especially since you just pointed out that it's making me crazy in general. Rafe - Oh ... okay ... fine but I don't want you to get all defensive and think that I'm making an accusation okay. But obviously you care about Eric ... really care.
Theresa - I'm sure a lot of people in Salem know this guy because he's got a very prestigious ... JJ - I don't care. Theresa - It sure sounded like you did. JJ - If this dude is so great why aren't you with him right now? Theresa - Because you promised that you were going to get me some blow. I should have known not to send a boy to do a man's job. JJ - The next time you need a fix why don't you call you're amazing new boyfriend and leave me the hell alone. Theresa calls out to him as he's walking away - Have fun in Algebra class.
Jen - I didn't mean to upset you. Brady - You didn't. You're always honest with me and I appreciate that. Jen needs to get back to that daily grind. Brady - If I had to work with that Anne Millbauer I think I'd commit a felony or something. Jen - Don't think I haven't thought about it and add my new assistant to that. Brady - It's probably not easy working with Daniel. Jen - We're adults and we're professionals. Brady - He loves you a lot. Jen - Why does everyone think I can just snap my finger and make this all work out. It is not that easy. I don't want to lose Daniel but this is how it has to be right now because my son needs me and I don't know what else to do.
Dan is working on the lock. Mason can't believe this. Eric - It's not your fault. We just want to make sure she's okay. Dan gets the door unlocked and pushes it open. They all stare inside. Dan - I can't believe it.Segment 3:
They see that the woman has escaped through the bathroom window. Eric doesn't understand. She'd rather crawl out of a 2nd story window then let us help her! Mason - I told you, she's pretty nuts. Dan - I don't think she wanted our help. Eric - Why not? Dan - Mason's pretty close to figuring out what happened to you in that hotel room, right? And now some mysterious woman just comes in here and destroys every shred of evidence he collected. Do you really think that's a coincidence? Eric recalls the woman at the hotel. Eric - There's something that happened that I never mentioned because I didn't think it was that important but I do remember crossing paths with a woman at the hotel that day. I think she stuck out to me because she was acting skittish. Dan - Anything else that you can recall. Eric - No, I keep thinking about her and wondering if she had anything to do with me getting sick.
Theresa rushes back into Jen's office. Jen - Where have you been? Theresa - Sorry, HR was a madhouse. Jen - Stop it and sit down. You never went to HR. I thought we had this understanding that you were going to make a genuine effort but I guess I was wrong. Theresa - The thing is I was helping my family down at the pub. Jen - I don't care and I'm so tired of your litany of excuses; I'm so tired of dealing with you but you know what, you're not going to be my problem anymore. She makes a call. Theresa - What do you mean? Jen - Anne, Theresa is in my office and since she is having such a hard time making it down to yours, would you please come up here? Thank you. Theresa - So what now? Jen - Well, you're getting exactly what you wanted. I'm not going to inconvenience you anymore with my little pesky requests for you to get your job done because you're not going to have a job anymore.
Nicole - Of course I care about Eric. He gave me a job and a roof over my head when I had nothing. He's been a good friend to me just like you. Rafe chuckles. There you go getting defensive. I wasn't accusing you of anything. Nicole - I'm sorry. I'm just protective of my friends, all two of you. I almost lost both of you. Eric checked into a room here not long ago. Rafe - What happened? Nicole - He got really sick, high-fever, delusional. They thought for a minute that they might lose him but as fast as it came on he got better. Rafe - What was it? Nicole - Daniel still isn't sure but he thinks he might have been poisoned. Rafe - Who would want to poison a priest? Nicole - I don't know but there are some sick people in this world. Rafe - Yes. You know what, I am so sick of being in this bed. Maybe I could help Daniel out. Obviously I can't do any legwork but I could look at the notes, his chart ... Nicole - Please don't say anything. Eric didn't even want me to know. Besides, it's none of my business, right? Rafe - That never stopped you before. Nicole smiles - True.
Dan - Can you describe this woman at the hotel? Eric - She was wearing sunglasses so I didn't get a really good look at her face. But what I do remember is that she was very attractive. She had this short, dark hair. Mason - How old was she? What was she wearing? Eric - I don't know but what I do remember is she was very worldly, sophisticated. Mason - Definitely not the same woman. Mousy brown hair, not attractive and the opposite of sophisticated. Dan - What was her name? Mason holds up a soggy notepad. I wrote it down here. She seemed pretty klutzy. It might be hard to swallow but I do think it was an accidental spill. Dan - I guess there's not much we can do about it now. Mason - And I'm afraid the evidence is a total loss. Eric - Great. Dan - Don't worry about it. We're not giving up; not until we get the answers we need.
Kristen arrives home and tells herself she did a good job. There's a knock on the door. It's Brady. You were going to call me. Kristen - I just walked in the door. I was going to call you. Brady asks if she's alright. You seem a little jittery. Kristen says she's happy to see him - too much caffeine though. I'm a little more sensitive then I thought. Brady is sceptical. Kristen - I get that way when I have too much coffee, a little jittery ... a little ... Brady - Stop. Why are you bs'ing me? Kristen - I'm not. I'm just trying to explain ... Brady - Yes you are. Tell me the truth. I don't like what's going on here. What are you hiding?Segment 4:
Theresa - If I lose this job I'll have to go back to LA and there's a whole bunch of legal stuff that I really need not to deal with not to mention my parents, they're going to be so mad. Jen - You know what honey, I am so sorry. I have no idea what your situation is but maybe you should have thought about that before you decided to run for worst employee of the year award. Theresa whines - You're not going to help me at all. People say that you are so nice, where do they get that idea, huh. I know why you're so angry and it's got nothing to do with me.
Nicole walks into the living room of the Kiriakis mansion and thanks Daniel for taking the time to see her. Dan - Are you okay? What's going on? Nicole - I was wondering if you had any leads on what happened to Eric in the hotel. Dan trots out doctor / patient confidentiality. Why wouldn't you just talk to Eric about it? Nicole - I have but he just downplays everything. What if someone is out to hurt him? I live under the same roof. What if I'm in danger too. Dan doesn't think so. We have some leads. They haven't panned out but at least not yet. But I'm sure Eric wouldn't want you worrying about him. Nicole - Right. Actually there's something else I want to talk to you about and it has nothing to do with me. Dan - About who? Nicole - JJ Deveraux.
Rory is surprised to see JJ back at school. He thought he'd be getting geeked with that lady. JJ - She wasn't as cool as she seemed. Rory - Somebody got dissed! JJ - No. I just realised she's not my type. A guy is talking to a girl getting ready to ask her out. She brushes past him to go and talk to JJ. She asks if he's busy tonight. JJ - Not so far. Do you want to hang out? Girl - Sure. That would be awesome.
Sami rushes to the bars when EJ arrives. EJ - I got here as soon as I could. What happened? Sami - Marge was here. I thought she was going to kill me. She was saying these horrible things ... EJ - How the hell did she get in here? Sami - I don't know but I called for a guard and no one was coming. EJ - Did she hurt you? Sami - I was just scared. EJ - It's over. Sami - I thought after that they wouldn't let you come. How did court go? EJ - Court is delayed a bit. Justin and Kayla are still there. Sami - So you don't know if the judge is going to give permission to exhume the body. EJ - No we don't, not yet. Justin is cautiously optimistic as am I. Sami - I survived death row once. I never thought I'd have to deal with this again. I don't know how much of this I can take.
Kristen asks why he's so upset with her; just because I'm a little edgy. Brady - A little? When I walked in the door you were pale, jittery, anxious - just like this morning - completely out of character and I feel like you're hiding something from me and I want you to be honest with me about it. Kristen - What could I possibly be hiding from you? Brady - I've never seen you take a garment bag to work for one thing. I know you told me you were meeting a client for lunch. Kristen - Do you think I made it up? Do you think I'm seeing someone else? Brady - I asked you one other time if you were seeing someone else when we were apart and you had that same look on your face. Kristen - You are the only man that I've thought of. I've been distracted today, I apologise. I had this stupid presentation, a million dollars on the line. Are you always calm, cool and collected on days like that? Brady - Yes, always. No, I'm not. Kristen - I promise you from my heart, I want this new beginning just as much as you do. Brady - So how come you're not wearing your bracelet anymore? Is that not supposed to faze me either. Kristen recalls sitting down at the computer in the rectory and under her breath mutters, Oh God.Segment 5:
Theresa thinks that Jen's problem is that she doesn't have a man in her life and the only person she can take it out on is her. Jen - Are you kidding me right now! Theresa just plows on being more insulting then ever. Jen - Your being lazy and incompetent and rude has nothing to do with my personal life. Anne listens in the doorway as Theresa rants - You think it's hell working for Anne! You are so uptight and prissy all the time it's no wonder you can't hang on to a man. Jen - How dare you! Theresa - I dare. I mean seriously, how could anyone stand to be around you! You don't laugh, you don't smile, you don't have any fun. It's a total downer to be in ... Jen - You say one more word to me and I'm telling you right now ... Anne walks in - Is everything okay in here? Jen - Oh yeah, she's all yours Anne. She leaves.
Nicole - I know Jennifer and I have had our ups and downs but I think she's a really cool person now and if you truly do love her, please don't let that kid get in the way. And I'm sure that Jack Jr knows how to play Jennifer like a dime store harmonica but you know better, right? Dan - Okay talk to me. What happened? Nicole - I ran into him, I mean literally ran into him. He was holding on to something that he just did not want me to see. Dan - What do you think it was? Nicole - Nothing good, I can tell you that much.
JJ will text the girl later. She's happy. She leaves. JJ - Dude, I've got a date tonight. The guy walks up - What the hell's your problem man. You see me with Bev and all of a sudden you're interested. Back the hell off. JJ - Are you totally deluded? She's not into you. Get over it. JJ leaves. The other guy tells Rory - He should know he's screwing with the wrong guy.
Jen is in Rafe's room. We are all glad to see you doing so well. Rafe - Yeah. So do you think you could talk to Daniel and get me out of this damn bed. I figure you could work some angles that I can't. Jen laughs. I think that he is being extra cautious. Rafe - Not that I'm being ungrateful for that because he's taking great care of me. He's here all the time. 5am, 10pm, weekends. Can't imagine how lucky you are. Jen - I am. I am very lucky to have him in my life.
Kristen - I had the bracelet on when I went to drop off that cheque at the rectory; the donation. It must have fallen off my wrist. I don't know what I'm going to do if I can't find it. And I'm so sorry, I was distracted. Brady - It's okay. Kristen - When I'm with you I want to be fully present because I love you so much. I just want to be present for you. You deserve that. She hugs him. I'm going to go and find my bracelet. Brady - Can we meet up for coffee later - decaf. Kristen will call him. They kiss before he leaves. Kristen sighs - Oh God. I can walk the straight and narrow. No one's ever going to know I defrocked your priest, okay. Why does doing the right thing have to be so damn complicated!Segment 6:
Anne - So you and Jennifer, you don't seem to be hitting it off so well. Theresa - That's because she's a miserable human being. I mean ... I'm so sorry. Anne - It's okay. That's one thing we agree on. Theresa - I kind of got that impression. Anne - Getting used to a new work environment can be really difficult. I totally understand that. Why don't we get these pesky forms out of the way. Theresa - Wait. This isn't a W4. I'm not getting fired. Anne - No I would hate to disappoint your Aunt Kayla. Theresa - But before you said ... Anne - That was before I got to know you. Now that I've seen you in action I can say unequivocally that you are exactly the type of assistant that Jennifer Horton needs.
Rafe - Did I say something ... Jen - No, you said something really wonderful and really right because I've let so many things get in the way that I've lost sight of the big picture. I'm really lucky to have Daniel in my life. So thank you for helping me to remember and count my blessings. Rafe - This is the first time I've felt the slightest bit useful in months so thank you! So are you going to go talk to Daniel now or what? Jen - Yes I am. You take care.
Nicole - Whatever JJ is hiding I made sure he knows that I have my eye on him. Dan - Abe Carver has his eye on him; even that doesn't seem to make a difference. Nicole - Abe Carver? Dan - Just a little shoplifting trouble. Nicole - Really! It looks like we have a repeat performance. Jennifer needs to know about this and she's going to need a shoulder to lean on. Come on, you're a take charge kind of a guy so take charge. Dan - I'd love to but that's a sure-fire way to lose her for good.
Madge is walking through the square when she gets a text. No way in hell!
EJ returns to Sami's cell. The guard just came on duty and apparently there's no record of Marge Bernardi being here. Sami - Seriously! EJ - Apparently nobody saw her. They're having technical difficulties with the surveillance cameras. Sami - So they're covering for her. EJ - It seems that way. Sami - Abe thought he'd be able to protect me. EJ - Abraham told me he personally vetted every single person assigned to this floor. If anything happens it's on their heads and let me tell you something, Internal Affairs is going to be the last thing they need to worry about. Sami - Will that stop Marge from showing up here and playing head games with me. EJ - Not necessarily. Who says she's going to get another chance. If the judge orders that autopsy you could be home free.Segment 7:
JJ asks Bev what she wants to do tonight. She was planning on having a Twilight marathon in her basement. JJ - What if we could find a party. Bev - That sounds good. JJ gets a call from Theresa. Listen, I'm sorry about earlier. JJ - You're only sorry because you don't have anyone else to hook you up. Theresa - Come on JJ. Let me make it up to you. JJ - How. Theresa - We can hang out later. You won't be sorry.
Dan answers the door at Vic's. Jen - Hi. Dan - If you're here to see Maggie, she's in the kitchen. Jen - I'm here to see you. Dan - Why? Jen - To do this. She kisses him.
Brady is at the pub when he sees Nicole. I don't want to hear it. Nicole - Hear what? Brady - What a bad idea it is getting back with Kristen. Nicole - You said it, not me. Truce okay. I won't bug you about Kristen if you do something for me. Brady - What? Nicole - It's about Eric.
Kristen knocks on the rectory door - no answer. She goes in and starts looking for her bracelet. She crawls under the desk and finds it. Eric - What are you doing?
Sami cries - She misses the kids so much. EJ tells her to think about holding them in her arms when she gets home. EJ's cell rings. Justin asks if Sami is okay. EJ - She's at the end of her rope. Justin - Tell her to hang in there because we did it. We got the court order to exhume the body. EJ - Thank you! Sami - The judge said yes? EJ - The judge said yes. See I told you. Everything is going to be alright.
Justin is on his cell. Yes, Joseph Bernardi. I have a court order to have his body exhumed. Marge - That is never going to happen.
Sami - Thank God, this nightmare is almost over.
