Segment 1: Maggie is at the Horton house. Jen tells her she's fine. Maggie - You can't be. Jen - I can pretend I am. Maggie - This is so out of character for Daniel. I mean Theresa of all people. JJ listens as Jen says she doesn't want to talk about Daniel and she really doesn't want to talk about Theresa. Maggie - I get it. Listen, if you need to talk, call me. JJ comes in the room. Maggie - I'm glad you're back home. In a quiet voice she tells him to take care of his mother. She says goodbye and leaves. Jen - You're home early. JJ - Yeah, it was a half day but I'm glad you're home. I have to talk to you. Jen - Did something happen at school. JJ - No, there's just something I have to tell you.
Theresa wakes up. Dan and Maxine are in the room. She asks - Where am I? Dan - You are in the hospital. Do you know how you got here? Do you remember what happened last night.
Victor lets Marlena in to the K mansion. Marlena - I don't like being summoned. Vic - I don't like being cut out of the loop. Marlena - I didn't cut you out of the loop. Vic - You don't call, you don't write. I have no idea what the hell is going on. All I know for sure is I haven't gotten a text from Brady saying 'Wedding is off Discovered bride to be is a soul sucking bitch LOL'. Marlena - This is not funny. Vic - You think I don't know that. You've got 24 hrs. to come up with something and I want to know what that something is. What! Marlena - I don't like being yelled at. I feel bad enough already. I had a chance to stop Kristen and I blew it.
Brady tells Kristen that Eric is furious because he didn't tell him that he knew Nicole had feelings for him. Kristen - He's furious? Brady - Yeah, furious. I told him I was trying to protect Nicole; I didn't think he was in danger but he got louder and louder. I truly have never seen him this upset. Am I nuts. So Nicole has a crush on him; feelings for him. No one died. What is the problem! He's acting like it ruined his life.
Eric - Before you go there's something I want you to know. What happened between us was not entirely your fault. I should have been warned about your feelings. Nicole - One more time, NOTHING HAPPENED BETWEEN US! Eric - You don't have to deny it. Aside from my spiritual advisor I'm not going to tell anybody else about this. I won't go to the police. Nicole - The police? Eric - Yes to press charges even if more evidence comes to light. Nicole - Nothing is going to come to light because nothing happened between us. I didn't drug you and I sure as hell didn't have sex with you.
JJ - Oh man. Jen - What? JJ - The look on your face and the fear that's in your eyes right now saying 'what did he do now.' Jen - No. JJ - It's okay. You get to be scared. I made you not able to trust me. I've got to deal with that. Jen - Just tell me what you're going to tell me. Abby comes in. JJ, If you don't pull all the way into the driveway then we don't have enough room to park. Jen - Sweetie, that's my fault. Can you not jump on your brother right now please. JJ - It's okay. Hey, you went to say goodbye to Chad, didn't you? Abby - Yeah. Jen - Baby, are you okay? Abby - Yeah, I'm fine. It looks like you two were in the middle of talking and I'm not in a great mood so I'll leave you guys alone. JJ - Come on, Abs. I was just about to tell Mom something, maybe you should hear it too.
Marlena - Nicole and I both think there's something incriminating on that flashdrive; maybe something about the affair. Certainly Kristen went through a lot of trouble to have some thug steal it back. Vic - Remember the good old days. Proof of an affair was lipstick on your collar; an earring in the bed sheets. Marlena - Now that's why I don't tell you stuff. Vic - Do you listen to yourself? Tomorrow my grandson is marrying a woman who keeps proof of an affair on a flashdrive. Think of the levels of weirdness that entails. You try to get rid of proof of an affair not store it on a handy dandy portable device. Marlena - Well the point is moot. We both know that once she got her hands on it she destroyed it. And the camera cuts to the flashdrive on Daniel's desk.
Kristen - It gets even weirder. I just saw Nicole. She was acting like her life was ruined too. I'm not her biggest fan, we all know that, but I almost felt sorry for her. Brady - I should have kept my big mouth shut with Nicole. I was so mad at her for spreading those lies about you, I lashed out at her, I yelled at her. Kristen - You had no way of knowing that Eric was going to overhear you. Brady - I should still apologise to her. I've been trying to call her. Kristen - I saw her, seriously she needs space. I think you and I need to go talk to Eric and smooth things over with him as soon as we can.
Nicole - I talked to that woman, your witness at the hotel. A woman who didn't seem very competent at all. A hotel clerk who sees a hundred faces a day knows for a fact that I was there months ago in some ridiculous disguise and that's all you need to accuse me of rape. Eric - I remember that night. Nicole - Really. So I drove to the capitol in some silly disguise and drugged and seduced my friend. I would NEVER do that to anyone, especially someone I love. Eric - Did you love EJ when you faked a pregnancy just to stay with him? Didn't you love Daniel when you told him Jennifer pushed you down the stairs? I think your track record speaks for itself.
Segment 2: Theresa - Sorry, the last thing I remember is leaving work yesterday, even that's really hazy. Before that, the whole week, it's sort of a blank. Dan - Okay, then we start by saying you're going to be fine. He sees Anne standing outside the door. Maxine, would you please take care of that. Maxine leaves. Dan - As I was saying you're going to be fine but you OD'd last night. Theresa - Oh God. Where was I? Dan - In your apt. You called me earlier that evening so luckily I came by and found you. Theresa - What! I called you? Dan - None of that sounds familiar. Theresa - No, not at all.
Jen slaps JJ's face. You were doing drugs with Theresa. She could have died. What is wrong with you! You ran away! What are you? A coward and a liar. Get out of my house! Get out of my house right now! End fantasy. Abby - JJ, what is it? What's wrong? Jen - What is going on. You seem so upset. JJ - It's because I am upset Mom. I know how stupid I have been over and over and it's like I finally woke up. Last night when we were talking I wasn't clear enough. So here's the deal. I am done doing drugs. Abby - Do you mean that JJ? JJ - Never again. Jen - Thank you. Thank God. JJ - I'm not going to use, I'm not going to deal. I actually saw how the drugs were ruining my life and yours too. I'm sorry for how I acted. I'm sorry for how I treated you. How I talked to everyone. I really wish I could take it all back. Jen - Honey, it's in the past. It doesn't even matter now. You made a positive decision so we are just going to move forward. If you really mean it, if you're really giving up drugs ... JJ - IF I mean it? Look, I do but I also understand it's going to take a while for you guys to trust me again. Jen - I mean this ... I am so proud of you. She hugs him. I'm really proud of you.
Vic - So Kristen got the evidence back and destroyed it and you didn't see fit to tell me about that. Marlena - I assumed she destroyed it. And I didn't tell you because I know how cranky you get when things don't go exactly your way. Vic - Nothing is going my way and if this wedding comes off tomorrow it's going to be your fault. Marlena - Wow. You are really good at assessing blame, aren't you? I don't know how Maggie puts up with you. Maggie comes in - A question I ask myself everyday. So does someone want to tell me what's going on here.
Kristen - I'm going to go and speak with Eric not just so he'll marry us but because I hate it when you guys are mad at each other. Brady - I should go with you. Kristen - The peace needs to be brokered. You guys have a way of pushing each others buttons, don't you think. Brady - He was furious when I walked in the door. Kristen - Let me see what I can do. Can you do me a favour? Jennifer texted me and she said needed to speak to me about the wedding, something important. Could you go by her place and find out what it was. Brady - I'd be happy to but I think I'm getting the easier assignment here though. Kristen - We know Eric, he's probably all calmed down by now. She kisses him and leaves.
Eric - All this time I thought you were my guardian angel; you were looking out for me. Nicole - I was. Eric - No, Nicole. You hurt me in more ways then you can even imagine. Do you have any idea what you have done to me! I took a vow of chastity and you defiled that, you defiled me! Nicole - Where the hell's that Bible? She places her hand on top of the Bible. I swear I did not drug you. I swear I did not have sex with you. Eric - Put that down! Nicole - Why! Because I shouldn't touch it; because I'm unclean? I swear to God I did not do that to you! Eric grabs the Bible. Don't you take His name in vain! Not after what you have done. Nicole - I know what you're going through. I know the anger and I know the rage. And you know how I know that? Because I was abused as a kid. You know I was. I know what you're going through and I would never in a million years do that to someone else. But you don't believe me. Some desk clerk's word means more than mine because I am what I've always been, a lying slut. She grabs her purse and leaves.
Segment 3: Dan - Can I ask you something. If you remember last night, anything at all, call me right away. It's kind of a sensitive situation and I think it's best you talk to me before you talk to anybody else. Will you promise me that? Theresa - Yeah, I'd promise you anything. Right now I've got to get back to sleep.
When Dan goes to the nurses station Anne marches up. I just wonder how you live with yourself. Thanks to your sleazy party last night that young woman almost died. Dan - Smug self-righteousness, how out of character for you. Maxine - We all know you don't do any work but maybe you could leave people alone so they can. Anne - Such unswerving loyalty to a man who can destroy this hospital's reputation. Dan - My blood test came back negative. The hospital's reputation is just fine. Anne - Dollars to donuts the lab clerk was female. Dan - WTH are you implying? Anne - Oh really, do I need to spell it out. Dan - What you need to do Anne is get a life so you can stop ruining everybody else's. Anne - Oh really, I'm ruining other people's lives. This from a guy who's hanging out with a young woman who OD's and almost dies. Dan - Shut the hell up. Anne - This from the esteemed surgeon who's private life is a complete and utter catastrophe due to his apparent compulsion to seduce practically every woman in Salem. And yet he walks around like the poor, put upon, beleaguered soul who's been dealt a bad hand when in fact every single, crappy thing that's ever happened to him has been because ... Dan - Get away from me. Get out of my face. I am warning you. Anne looks around at everyone watching and leaves. Maxine - I'm sorry. Anne was even more brutal than usual. Dan - I'm sure that's what you were thinking. Maxine - No. Dan - I know you're disappointed in me Maxine. Maxine - It's kind of hard not to be. You all but owned what you did last night. Just give me a reason to be wrong. Dan - I've said all I'm going to say. Maxine - Alright. Dan - Now I'm going to take the rest of the day off. Dan looks at everyone staring. Just like Spencer Tracy; Bad Day at Black Rock. Maxine - At least it can't get any worse. Jen gets off the elevator. Maxine - I think I spoke to soon.
Marlena is checking her cell. I've got an emergency at the hospital. I have to go. I'll leave you to explain to Maggie. She leaves.
Vic - I hate it when you cross your arms that way. Maggie - And I hate finding out that once again you're doing something behind my back. Vic - Pure conjecture on your part. Maggie - Marlena doesn't drop by for high tea and you don't have a scowl on your face for no good reason. So once again, what's going on here?
Hope is walking through the park when she sees Brady. They say hi. Brady - I'm glad I ran into you. Did you get our email? Hope - Yeah, about moving the wedding up to tomorrow, right? Brady - Yeah, that's our plan. Of course we hit a snag but we're hoping to work it out and I'm hoping you're going to attend. Hope - I'm trying my best. Brady - Actually I had one other favour to ask you. We were hoping Ciara would be our flower girl. She's got to be our flower girl. Hope - She would absolutely love that but she's going to be in New York with my Dad and Julie. They have tickets for Matilda. It's been planned for months. Brady - I know it's a last minute thing. I kind of get the sense you're relieved though. Hope - I am.
Nicole is at the club having a martini. Stares at a picture of Eric on her cell and deletes it.
Eric is in the rectory holding the matchbook from the Capitol Hotel. How could you have done this to me? Kristen knocks and asks if he's busy. Eric - No. Kristen - I just talked to Brady. He's so sorry. He's so upset. Eric - I don't really want to talk about it right now. Kristen - I knew that Nicole had a crush on you too. Brady and I just didn't think it was our place to tell you. Can you understand? Eric - No because if one of you had been honest with me I could have handled the situation a bit better. Kristen - I don't understand why you're acting this way. It was really just an innocent crush. Eric snaps - Nothing about that was innocent. Do you have any idea what she did! Kristen - What did she do? What are you talking about? Eric - Nothing. I really don't want to talk about it. Kristen sees the matchbook from the hotel. Kristen - Does this have anything to do with what happened at the Capitol?
Segment 4: Jen and Dan ignore one another. Dan leaves. Maxine - I didn't expect to see you here today. Jen - I just came to pick up some documents. How's Theresa doing? Maxine - She was awake for a while. Doesn't seem to remember much about what happened last night. Jen - Wish I could say the same thing.
Hope - I'm sorry. I don't mean to offend you. You know how much I care about you and I'm trying not to judge. Brady - But you think that I'm making a big mistake marrying Kristen, don't you? Hope - We're talking about Ciara. You don't want to hear this but no I don't trust Kristen. I'm sorry but I don't want to have to worry about my little girl idealizing her, romanticizing her. Brady - I understand. I do. It took me a long time to understand that Kristen is not the woman everyone thinks she is. She's a good person. I know you don't believe me right now but you're going to find that we're going to have a good marriage together. Hope - I hope so. I really do hope so. Brady - I believe you. I'm late. I've got a lot of things to do. I'm hoping you'll attend.
Nicole pounds on Daniel's door calling out his name. Are you there? I really need to talk to you. Dan gets off the elevator. Dan - WTH are you doing here? Nicole - I didn't know where else to go? She starts crying. He holds her. It's okay.
Kristen - It's just that I remember you and Brady talking that Daniel had suspicions that maybe somebody poisoned you at that hotel. Does any of that have to do with Nicole? Did you remember something that implicated her? Eric - This isn't any of your business. Kristen - You're right. It's not. But if that was the case I would totally understand because it just kind of makes sense you know. That's how Nicole is. She's so extreme and over the top. And if she in fact did poison you she probably wanted to rescue you so she could be the big hero. If she did something like that I could totally understand why you'd be upset. Eric stares. Kristen - Is there something more?
Segment 5: Anne shakes Theresa and tells her to wake up. We need to have a little chat. Theresa - Go away. Anne - I'm not going anywhere until you tell me exactly what happened last night with you and Dr. Kildare. Theresa - What? Anne - Dr. Jonas. If we're going to pin anything on him it has to be soon. Theresa - He saved my life. Anne - That's his story but I want the truth. Did he give you those drugs? Theresa can't remember. Am I going to lose my job? Anne - I hope not. You're more useful to me here in the hospital besides this is your first offence. I'll take care of it. Theresa - Thank you. I owe you. Anne - You can say that again.
Jen opens the door of her home to Brady. Kristen said you wanted to talk about the wedding but she's unavailable so will I do. Jen - Oh. Brady - What is wrong with you? Jen - I'm so sorry to tell you this but I can't be there.
JJ is standing outside Theresa's room when Anne walks up and asks him what he's doing here. JJ - I came to see my mom but I heard about Theresa. I wanted to see how she was doing. Anne - Why do you care? JJ - She's a human being Anne. Anne - You know your mouth is the only smart thing about you. Oh and if you're looking for your mother, she went home early. What a surprise. JJ - I'll get going. Always a pleasure.
Marlena gets off the elevator and sees Anne approaching the nurse's station. I got your text. What's the emergency. Anne - Thanks to Dr. Jonas, the hospital's reputation is in real danger. His behaviour last night was inappropriate on so many levels. Marlena - What does that have to do with me? Anne - Am I missing something? You are this year's head of the Ethics Committee, right? So isn't it your job to hold him accountable for his actions.
Nicole is sitting on Dan's couch now. Eric thinks that I ... Dan - That you what? Nicole - I can't even say the word. But he's wrong. I didn't do anything to hurt him. Dan - You guys go way back. You've been very close lately. This will work out. Nicole - No it won't work out. I can't ever see him again. Dan - That doesn't make any sense. What did he say that you did? Nicole - I can't right now. Do you mind if I lay down for a little bit. We can talk about it later. I got really tired all of a sudden. She cries - I didn't do anything. I didn't do anything to him.
Eric - I won't talk about this with you and I have things to do. Kristen - Okay. Like I said, Brady is so sorry. He thought he was doing what was best for Nicole. He realises he made a huge mistake and if he could do it over again he would. You know how much he loves you though, you're his brother. And I respect you, you know that. Can you find it in your heart to forgive us and agree to marry us after all. Eric - I'll think about it but I can't make any promises. Like I said, I have things to do. I hope you don't mind showing yourself out. He leaves. Kristen mutters - My God, how much does he remember? What did you remember?
Segment 6: Vic - Marlena and I are both upset about Brady marrying Kristen. Since John's not here I'm comforting her. Maggie - You don't comfort anyone. I walked in on a fight. I want to know what it was about. Vic - You're making a big deal out of nothing. Maggie - Then tell me what it is. Vic - Do you trust me? Marlena and I are not planning a heist. We're not planning a coup. Nothing like that. We're just trying to protect Brady. Maggie - Okay, I'll let it go for now but whatever it is you're doing it better not end up hurting anybody that I love. Vic - Unless you love Kristen DiMera you've got nothing to worry about. She's the one I'm after.
Abby and Hope are at the pub. Abby - I guess Chad and I made peace about everything before he left. I'm still really angry at him for what he did but I'm really going to miss him. Hope - So what happens now? Abby - Now I think I'm going to take a break from dating for a while; go solo. I don't need a guy in my life to be happy. Hope - You're so right about that. Good for you honey. How are things going at home? Abby - Fingers crossed ... great. JJ just told me and my mom that he's done doing drugs for good. Hope - Thank God for that! That is such good news. Your mom could use some good news after last night, that is for sure. Abby - Why, what happened? Hope - She didn't tell you? Abby - Tell me what. Just tell me, I'll ask my mom if you don't. Hope - Theresa overdosed last night. Daniel brought her into the hospital. I didn't know they were dating.
Jen - I know this is going to sound really silly but I can't be there if Daniel is going to be there. I love you and Kristen so much but I can't. Brady - I know you're going through a rough patch ... Jen - No, this isn't a rough patch. We are done for good. Brady - I don't understand. Jen - Daniel has moved on. It's over.
Nicole is asleep. She dreams that Hope and Eric bust into Daniel's apt. Eric hurtles accusations and Hope arrests are while she proclaims her innocence. Eric snaps - You're not only going to spend the rest of your life in prison you're going to spend eternity burning in hell.
Marlena - Don't rush to judgement here. I'll remind you that Dr. Jonas's drug test came back clean. Anne - But test results can be altered. Marlena - There's no proof of that but I did hear that if he hadn't brought that woman in when he did she would have died of an overdose. Anne - Yes he claims not to have been there when she overdosed but how do we know for sure. He could have given her the drugs to get her in the mood. Marlena - You are so grasping at straws here. Anne - You know what hurts institutions. Not that a bad thing happened but the institution covering it up. We can't take this man's word for it. We have to investigate. Marlena - I'm not going to put Dr. Jonas through a witch hunt. Anne - So what you're saying is that he gets a free pass because he's a surgeon. Marlena - Easy here. I will talk to Dr. Jonas. I will ask him what happened. Anne - Good luck with that. He spent 2 mins. with his girlfriend, his patient and then he went home probably to sleep it off. Marlena - Then I will leave him a note to call me but until you hear from me you keep your speculation to yourself for the sake of the hospital. Marlena goes into Dan's office muttering - That woman is a complete and utter pain in the ass. She looks around for a pen which conveniently is right next to the flashdrive.
Segment 7: Hope - Talk about bad timing. It was horrible. Your mom was there when Daniel brought her in. Abby - No, it's just too weird. When Theresa dropped Daniel's bracelet I thought she was just doing it to make it seem like they were dating just to mess with my mom. It can't actually be true. I was just with my mom, why didn't she say anything to me. Hope - I think she's really embarrassed. Jen - My mom cares about Daniel so much. She's probably devastated.
Brady - Moved on? What are you talking about? Is he seeing someone else? Jen - I guess you haven't heard. Daniel brought his latest flame into the hospital last night. I guess they were hanging out and she suddenly OD'd.
Anne is next to Maxine by Theresa's bedside. Is she still asleep? Maxine - Yes. Now leave her alone. She needs to sleep. After they leave the room Theresa opens her eyes and smiles.
Dan opens the door to JJ. You can not be here. JJ - I need to know what's going on with Theresa. Did she say anything? Dan - She can't. She doesn't remember what happened last night so for now as long as we stick to our story no one will know you were there when she OD'd. JJ - You're going to be stuck covering for me and everyone is going to think you were there to sleep with her. Dan - That's a lot better than you going to prison. Nicole hears all this.
Kristen is in the rectory talking to herself. Whatever Eric remembers he seems to think it was Nicole which works out great for me. Oh God, if he remembers that much, is he going to figure out that it was me. Yes! So I have to know exactly what's in Eric's head. The only person he ever talks to is Daniel so that's what I need to do. I need to pay a visit to Dr. Jonas.
Marlena finally discovers the flashdrive. She starts to laugh. OMG. Kristen's flashdrive.
