I actually found myself agreeing with Theresa today about being like her parents and making bad choices. But I get that the choices Jen is making now are due to the bad choices she made before when she let JJ lie to and manipulate her. She is right, any move she makes toward JJ now, he is going to see as her caving and being weak which is why she's so adamant about him making the first move. Daniel aside - The Deveraux family story is a compelling one and probably more true to life then anything else on Days right now.

Seriously - are the writers try to sell on this big emotional connection between a rapist and her victim ... seriously! What a bunch of hogwash.

Loved Nicole's dream but I felt so bad for her when she realised that all she'll ever get from Eric is gratitude.

And what was that spiel that Brady bought from Victor - speaking of hogwash ...

Director: Steven Williford
Scriptwriter: David Cherrill

Segment 1: Theresa tells Jen that she can help her get her son back. Jen - Why would you do anything for me? Theresa - That's not the question. The question is do you want JJ to come home. Jen - How on earth are you supposed to make that happen. Theresa - Trust me, I can. JJ listens to me. I'll have him move back in voluntarily and I'll get him to work things out with you but first you have to give me my job back, deal?

JJ looks in the fridge. There's a lot to drink. Bev - Some of these DVD's are cool. Rory - Too bad Dr. Dan's not going to stay away for a month. I could learn to like this place.

Dan is playing with Parker in their hotel room when Chloe arrives. Hey stranger, it's been a while.

Vic sees Abigail in the square and calls out to her. Abby - Mr. Kiriakis, it's good to see you. Vic - Good to see you too. Let me get straight to the point. Your mother is making some very bad decisions. She needs help. Abby - Okay. There's some rough times ... Vic - I know all about your brother. Pushing Daniel away is not the answer. It's not going to help your mother, it's not going to help JJ and it's certainly not going to help my godson. I know she listens to you so ... Nicole walks up. Victor, please leave this girl alone.

Brady asks Kristen what's wrong as she stares off into nothingness.

Marlena to a hypnotised Eric - Can you describe her to me? What colour hair does she have? Cue f/b. Marlena - Eric, who is she? Eric - Blonde. Marlena - Okay, she's a woman with blonde hair. Do you know her? Her nods yes. Marlena - Eric, try to see her face.

Kristen - I don't understand. Something's happening. Brady - What? Kristen - Something horrible.

Chloe hugs Parker and talks to him about how much she loves him and how she missed him. Dan tells her he doesn't have any early appointments so she can bring him back tomorrow whenever she wants. Dan tells Parker to go get his bag. Chloe - Daniel, there's something I have to tell you.

Theresa - I'll have your son move back home day one guaranteed. Day two, I'll have him making huge attitude adjustments but you have to do your part too. You have to fix it so I get rehired and then we'll pretend this whole thing never happened. I promise that this time I'll work really hard. I'll ... Jen - Stop right now and the answer is no. You can leave.

Eric - I can't see her face. I'm trying. I need to know why she's in my dream, my mind. Marlena - It's okay. We'll focus on something else. We'll come back to the woman later. Eric snaps out of it. No, this is a bad idea. Marlena - Are you alright? Eric - Mom, I'm a long way from being alright. What did I say when I was under? Marlena - You said there was a woman in the room and that she was a blonde. Eric - Are you sure that's all. Marlena - I asked you if you thought you knew her and you nodded. Eric, what else did you remember?

Brady - It's just a feeling. There's nothing to worry about. I've known you a long time. I've never known you to be clairvoyant. Kristen - I don't think I am. Whatever it was, it was very strong. Very strong feelings like somebody walking on my grave.

Segment 2: Theresa - God, you are impossible. I knew you had it out for me; that you hated me from day one. Jen - I gave you every chance ... Theresa - I tell you I can get your son back and you're just telling me to take a hike! Jen - Yes, I am. Right now as a matter of fact. She opens the door. Theresa - You're just like my parents. Whenever they had the chance to make the wrong move, they made it in spades. And you know what the sad part is, I like JJ. I really do. He's cute and he's got that whole cool guy going for him, lots of energy and smarts but what he doesn't have is a mom who knows what the hell it is she is doing and she doesn't even care that she doesn't know. I feel sorry for both of you. She leaves.

Rory finds a hand held game. We could unload this for at least a bill. JJ tells him to put it back. Bev - What's up JJ? You hate Dr. Dan and now you won't let Rory rip him off for a little extra spending cash. JJ - He'd know that was missing right away and I don't want to do that. I don't want Parker getting upset. He's really into his video games. He'd probably cry or something. Rory - So you're all gooey about that little boy. JJ - No, just use your head dude. Daniel knows he's been robbed and he calls the cops. Do you want to get arrested for something else? Rory - No. Bev - Yeah, JJ's right. We really need to be careful. We can't take any of his stuff or drink any of his booze. It would just be stupid; asking for trouble. Rory - Fine. So can we get high or something. Bev - Yeah.

Chloe - It's important for me to say thank you. After all the things that I did to you and Jennifer and for you to give me this new beginning. We both know you didn't have to so thank you. Dan - You got help. You weren't seeing things realistically and now you are. I know how much you love Parker. Chloe smiles - More than anything. And this program, my therapy, it's done wonders for me. It's been great. You know there's no denying that I loved you of course but trying to hold on to you when it was wrong for both of us ... Dan - It's done. You don't have to ... Chloe - It is but I want you to know that I've finally learned that even if you do love someone there is a time to let go.

Vic - Just butt out Nicole. This is a private conversation. Nicole - Abigail, he's just going to give you some longwinded spiel and try to get you to do what he wants you to do. Please feel free to walk away whenever you want. Abby - Actually it's okay. I agree with Mr. Kiriakis. My mom should be with Daniel. He is a great guy and they were great together but mom says it's best if Daniel stays away and Daniel says the same thing so ... Vic - That's because they're being stupid. Nicole - Stupid is Mr. Kiriakis's speciality. Vic - Zip it Nicole. Abby - Okay. I could try to talk Daniel. Maybe he would listen. Vic - Good, do it, tonight. It's very important. Abby - Okay. It's not too late. I'll go over there right now. Vic - Excellent. Let me know what he says. Abby - Okay. Goodnight. She leaves. Vic - Anymore smart remarks? Nicole - Anyone else's love life you want to interfere with? Night's young ...

Brady - It's nothing. I'm real, you're real, so don't worry. Our love is real. Kristen - I'm so scared. Brady - Of what? Kristen - No matter how much you and I love each something is going to come along and destroy it. Brady - No, no way.

Eric - I don't remember anything. Marlena - Of course you do. Eric - No. With hypnosis any type of suggestion could be interpreted as a memory. I must have been imagining things ... thinking they must have been a memory. Marlena - Let's talk about the things we feel we know. Eric - I know nothing. Marlena - You remembered that there was a woman in the room. That's entirely possible. And if she were there, that would be very upsetting to you. There's a lot of reasons for that but let's remember what the doctor said. Daniel said he thought you were poisoned. Maybe this woman poisoned you. Maybe she hurt you. What do you think? Eric - Nothing. I don't want to talk about this anymore. Marlena - Honey, I'm trying to help you. Eric snaps - I don't need your help. The subject is closed. It's done! Marlena - Eric, what are you hiding?

Segment 3: Vic - Are you sure you're not looking at another shot to snag yourself a doctor. Nicole - Oh please! Would you just delete that from your file. I just want Daniel to be happy always with the woman he was destined to love, Jennifer. Now what! Vic - You're still the same pathetic romantic you always were. You think everyone's got the perfect soul-mate just waiting for them out there somewhere and you of course, are going to find yours. What a crock! Nicole - You have the longest string of failed relationships in human history and then you found Maggie. Why can't I hope that something like that would happen to me.

Daniel - Try not to look back because you have a whole lot going on for you. One of these days you will meet someone who is right for you. You'll build a whole new life. Chloe - Maybe. What about you and Jennifer? Have you guys set a date ... Dan - Let's not talk about personal stuff. Chloe - Okay, sorry. It's just a little weird. Since I got here you haven't mentioned Jennifer's name once. There's nothing wrong, is there?

Kayla is now at the Horton house. Jen - Please tell me you didn't come here to try and talk me out of firing Theresa. Kayla - No, it's final. I'll do the paperwork in the morning. Jen - Thanks. I guess we should talk about possibly pressing charges. Kayla - Pressing charges? Jen - Kayla, I caught her embezzling hospital funds. Kayla - What! Jen - Yes. She signed her name. She issued herself a cheque from my discretionary account. Of course she didn't mention that to you, did she? Kayla - It just keeps getting worse. Jen - Listen, technically she didn't steal because she didn't cash the cheque. Okay, if she was so desperate to keep her job maybe firing her was punishment enough. Kayla - Well going back to L.A., she's going to face punishment alright.

The kids are hanging out in Dan's apt when there's a knock on the door. Abby - Daniel, are you home?

Kristen - I don't know how you do it but you always make me feel better. I wish you could bottle it so I could take it wherever I go. Brady - You have it. You always have my love with you. Kristen - And you have mine. Brady gets a call. He's going to ignore it but Kristen says it could be Eric about their Precana meeting. He looks at his phone - It's work. Damn it, to handle this, I have to get something from the house. Kristen - That's okay. I'm better. You go do that and I'll check with Eric about the sessions. As soon as we get this Precana stuff out of the way, the sooner we can set a date. I can't wait for that. Brady - Double that for me.

Eric - I'm not hiding anything Mother. Remember you said if I didn't recover my memories they could disappear very soon. I think they're gone. I think the things that I seemed to remember when under hypnosis is fake. I shouldn't have agreed to do this at all. Fr. Matt comes in. Sorry to interrupt. Eric - You're not interrupting. Actually I need to speak to you alone. My mother was about to leave. I'll talk to you tomorrow. Marlena - Sure. My phone is always on. Marlena leaves. Eric - We were just finishing up our first hypnosis session. Fr. Matt - Did you remember anything? Eric - You know, it's too bizarre it actually can't be true.

Segment 4: The kids tiptoe around in the apartment as JJ stands against the door. Abby - I really need to talk to you Daniel. It's about Mom. She needs you. She's miserable. If you're there would you just open the door. Some guy gets off the elevator and says - If you're looking for Dr. Jonas, he and his little boy are gone on a trip. Abby - That's weird. I could have sworn I heard voices when I got off the elevator. Guy - Maybe someone leaving a message on his answering machine. Abby - Yeah, maybe. Thank you. She leaves.

Dan - Let's concentrate on Parker. That's why we're here. Chloe - Yeah, I just assumed that you and Jennifer is not a topic that's really off limits, is it? Dan goes to Parker who pulls out the board game Candy Land. Chloe tells him they can play that game when they get to Mommy's place. Dan tells her that Parker thinks it's best if 3 people play. Daniel tells Parker that the 3 of them will play the game.

Marlena is at Victor's. She holds up the flashdrive. I've come to give this back to you. There's no sense in me carrying it around. Vic - What is the matter with you woman! That thing is priceless. It will cut through the password on any Smart Phone and download the information in seconds and you don't want to use it. Marlena - I'm not going to get a chance to use it. You might have to admit that I'm not going to get this done. I'm not going to get my hands on Kristen's phone. Vic - Did something happen to you today? Marlena - Yeah. It's Eric. I have been so worried about Brady and Kristen and sick about Sami that I've forgotten all about my son. Vic - What about him? Marlena - We all assume that because he's a priest he's strong, that he can take care of himself. But he can't right now. I need to focus my attention on helping him. Vic - What's wrong? Marlena - I wish I knew. All I know is that something is eating him alive. Vic - You too from the looks of it. Marlena - You know what, we assume that he'll be okay; that because he's a priest he's strong and he's kind and he's good when the truth is, he's only human.

Eric - The dream that I keep having and whatever happened to me in that hotel room are definitely connected. I just don't know how. Fr. Matt - And you think this woman you keep seeing tried to hurt you in some way. Eric - Possibly. The thing is that I had this picture in my head of this woman being dark haired but tonight I could clearly see that she was blonde. And I had this distinct feeling that I know her. I keep thinking ... why would someone want to hurt me.

Kristen holds the blue flashdrive and recalls raping Eric. She puts the drive in her purse and leaves.

Segment 5: Abby comes home. Jen - Hi, have you heard from your brother at all. Abby hasn't. Jen - I'm just wondering where he's going to spend the night. It's supposed to get really cold, down into the 40's I think. Abby - Do you want me to call him? Jen - I don't know. Will he talk to you? Abby - Maybe. I hope so. Do you want to talk to him? Jen - No, I probably ... Abby - How's JJ going to know that you care about him if you don't tell him. Jen - He knows that I care about him. I have told him that I love him over and over again. It is up to him now.

JJ's cell rings. It's my sister. Rory - OMG, she knows you're here. JJ - It's my phone you idiot, not Daniel's. Rory - Oh right. She doesn't know that you're here. JJ puts his phone down. Bev - What, you don't want to talk to her? JJ - Not now. Rory - Not from the scene of the crime, huh. He imitates Abby and what she said. JJ throws a pillow at him. JJ - Shut up dude. She's not like that. She just wants to help.

Theresa and Caroline sit down at a table in the pub. Caroline - We have talked. Roman agrees, Kayla agrees and I agree so there's no point in playing us one against the other. Theresa - You're all against me. Caroline - No, we're not against you. Theresa - Forget the lecture okay. Caroline - It's not a lecture. I made mistakes, plenty of them but I changed and that's because I got sick and tired of my life being miserable all the time. So if you change you'll find the whole Brady family on your side. That's a promise.

Nicole is sitting in her bed flipping through a book. She imagines Eric leaning against her bedroom door wearing jeans and a white tee shirt. I've read it. It's not that good. Nicole - Should you be here. Eric - I need some advice and you're my go-to. Nicole - Okay, what's up. Eric - Do you think I should leave the priesthood? Nicole - What? Eric joins her on the bed. Every priest has a little bit of doubt, mine's just a little bit larger. Nicole - You can't do that. You do so much good. It wouldn't be right. Eric - I'm human Nicole. I have the same needs and desires as every man. I care about you. No, that's not true. I want you. I love you. He kisses her. Nicole wakes up. She gets out of bed and pulls out a box from under her bed.

Eric - What if all these ideas in my head are just figments of my imagination. I only wanted answers and now I have all these questions. Fr. Matt - You need some quiet and prayer. God offers peace over all. Eric - You're right as usual. Fr. Matt - If you need me my door's always open. Goodnight. He leaves. Eric prays. He's startled by a knock on the door.

Vic - Eric is an adult. Stop meddling and keep your eye on the prize. You're the one who told me Kristen had lied to Brady. Marlena throws the flashdrive back in her purse. Oh, we're back to that. Vic - It's kind of important, don't you think. Marlena - I can't do anything about this. Has that not become abundantly clear to you. Vic - So what are you going to do; give the bitch a pass? Marlena - I wish you would understand my position in this thing. Brady walks in - How are we doing?

Segment 6: Abby - I know that you're really torn up about things right now so I'm not going to push okay. Not about JJ and not about Daniel. Jen - Thank you. Abby - But I am going to say that I am so happy that you fired Theresa. Jen - That's something I should have done a long time ago. Abby - If you need help I'm happy to come after classes and help you with filing and stuff. Jen - Thank you honey. That's very sweet. I would love that. Abby - I'll be there. You know it occurred to me tonight that right now we're all we've got. They hug.

Dan packs up the game as Chloe tells Parker to go get his bag so they can go. Chloe asks for some more alone time with Parker tomorrow. Can I drop him off a little later? Dan - Sure. I have a patient I really need to see. No later then 11. Chloe - Deal. Thank you. I appreciate that. You know if you leave now you can actually get home and sleep in your own bed tonight. I wouldn't mind driving Parker back to Salem myself in the afternoon or something. Would that work?

Rory - What's the problem dude. You're always ragging on your sister. JJ - That doesn't mean you can. Yeah, my family's messed up but it's not Abigail's fault. It's because of this S.O.B. Bev - Let's get high. I rolled a joint. JJ - Go smoke it by the window so you don't stink up the place. Bev - Anybody have a lighter. They start looking for one. JJ finds one. He also finds a picture of Dan and Jen.

Kristen - Am I interrupting? Eric - It's fine. Come in. Kristen - I just wanted to confirm our session for the Precana meeting tomorrow. Eric - I'm sorry. I was supposed to send an email to you and Brady. 11 o'clock okay. Kristen - That's fine. I'm trying really hard not to be nosy but are you okay. You seem upset. Eric - Tired. Is there anything else? Kristen - No, that's it. I'll see you tomorrow. Eric - Goodnight.

Brady - What's up with you Granddad. You've been arguing with everyone today. Vic - Just in a bad mood I guess. Brady - Marlena, you look awfully serious. I thought you'd be walking on air once Sami was cleared. Marlena - I am. It's the best news I've had in ages. They hug. Brady - You can say that again. Marlena - I should get going. I've got some early patients. She looks at Vic - Sorry about tonight. She leaves. Brady - What's going on? And I can already smell it coming so fair warning, no bull.

Segment 7: Theresa is in the square. When she sees the Horton plaque she gets angry. I hate this town! I can't go home. Damn Jennifer. Damn that stupid woman.

Jen is lying on the couch and Abby is sitting - there's a movie on. They both hear a noise. Maybe it's JJ. They go to the door. No one's there. Abby - It's just the wind I guess. Jen cries - It's so cold out here. Abby - It's okay mom. Jen - I'm just so glad you're here. Abby - Please try not to worry. JJ's going to be fine.

Dan - So you don't mind driving him back tomorrow? Chloe - No, not at all. My whole day is free so it works out just fine. Besides I have a hunch you may have a few reasons for wanting to get back to Salem tonight. Dan confirms with Parker that he wants Mommy to drive him to Salem tomorrow. So Daddy's heading home tonight.

Rory calls out - Hey man, you want to hit this or not. JJ breaks the glass on the photo and then throws it back in the drawer,

Brady - You know Granddad if you've started having fun little chats with Nicole I'd have to have you tested but arguing with Marlena ... seriously. Vic - Let me tell you something Brady. As a man gets older, gets of a certain age, he starts to have a hard time dealing with women. Brady - Come on, you and Maggie ... Vic - Trust me. It will happen to you and the older you get, the worse it gets. Whatever our personalities are, for better or worse, they get more that way every damn year. Brady - That's really something to look forward to then. Vic - I'm being serious here. So before you get married make sure you can be happy with the most extreme version of Kristen that you can imagine then maybe you'll think twice and come to your damn senses. He leaves.

Kristen is back in the hotel room talking to her flashdrive. Maybe one day soon I won't need you anymore. If I could absolutely trust Brady you could be destroyed. Everything will be perfect.

Marlena is in the square. She pulls out the flashdrive. This is ridiculous. I need to be concentrating on Eric. She throws the drive back in her purse. I can't do that until I find out what's going on.

Nicole pulls out a landscape photo from the box and recalls Eric telling her that he took that photo his first morning in Africa. Nicole - It's beautiful. Eric - It's yours. It's my way of saying thank you for letting me talk about my feelings about what happened back there. Nicole - That's all I'll ever have of Eric, gratitude. She puts the picture away and closes the box.

Fr. Matt returns to the rectory. I'm going to bed. How are you doing? Eric - Much better actually. You were right as usual. Prayer helped. Fr. Matt - Things are clearer. Eric - No, I'm still in the middle of a mystery but I will find the answers. In the meantime I know the Lord heard my prayer and God's going to show me the truth.
