REVENGE Is A Dirty Business

Lexi manages the fire and Abe comes out with tea. He says he can see well enough to do these little things. He kind of stumbles as he carries the tea over to the table. What’s he blind? The doorbell rings. It’s Kate. She tells him about Phillip. Abe wishes he could help. The blind guy and the druggie after Phillip would certainly outdo the US Marines. Abe goes off and Lexi and Kate talk. Kate tells Lexi she is in a terrible situation.

John rummages around for the bag-o-pills. “Oh, she didn’t take them with her, did she?” He smashes a vase against the door. We'll be hearing form the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Crystal now for sure.

Rex and Mimi walk around the dock. Mimi, guess what, has something to tell Rex. Rex says they can adopt even if they can’t have kids. Mimi says there is no reason why he can’t have kids of his own, “I’ll understand if you don’t want to marry me.”

“If Billie or Patrick find me it’s over,” thinks Stami. The search continues. Patrick and Billie bump into each other as Stami runs.

The cop tells Bo and Hope Shawn may have gone over the cliff. Maybe not the cliff, but he’s headed off the deep end for sure. Hope smacks Bo, “This is your fault, Brady.”

Belle skids as she drives Shawn. Shawn doesn’t want to go to the hospital. “Do you want to end up dead,” asks Belle.

Patrick says he told Billie to stay put. Billie argues. “I’m trying to find out who planted that doll. They could lead me straight to Georgia.”

Stami calls crawls out of a dumpster. “REVENGE is a dirty business,” she thinks.

Billie and Patrick argue. Patrick runs off to find Stami, “YOU! HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!”

Shawn promises he won’t die. He apologizes for putting Belle though this. He assures her he will be OK. Belle says, “When your parents find out, who knows what they will do.”

The cop tells Ho and Dope they found some empty beer bottles. Hope smacks Bo again, “Why couldn't you have listened to me just this once? You made your choice. Now I’m making mine.”

Kate tells Lexi about John and the drugs. She shows her the bag-o-pills. “Painkillers,” says Lexi, “What happened? He was determined to kick this.”

Kate tells her John is pressuring her to give him the pills so he can help search for Phillip. Lexi says, “I should have turned him in.”

Kate says she couldn’t turn him in, “He’s been such a good friend to me. I just wish there was some way I could help him.”

Lexi says, “He needs tough love. You need to destroy the drugs.”

Kate asks, “What if I also destroy any chance of saving Phillip?”

Lexi tells her John is trying to bribe her with a promise he can’t keep, “He needs help not another fix.”

“What,” says Abe, “John Black is doing Drugs?”

John searches. The phone rings. “Yeah, it’s me,” he grunts, “I’ve been expecting your call.”

“FREEZE,” says Patrick as Stami jumps into a dumpster. Patrick gets a call. The voice on the other end says, “Stop looking for him.”

“Why should I take orders form you,” asks Patrick.

“Because of the people you care about.”

“I’ve got to get out of here,” thinks Stami.

Patrick watches, "Who the hell are you?"

It’s a busy night at the docks. Rex tells Mimi he still wants to marry her. She loves him, “That's why I’m giving you your out. You deserve a wife who will give you children. Those amazing genes of yours shouldn’t go to waste. If you marry me you will miss out on so much and that’s not fair.”

“You’re right, Mimi,” says Rex, “It’s not fair.”

Billie caresses the doll. Patrick comes back, “Whoever it was got away. Who the hell is doing this?”

Billie answers, “Bo will think it’s you.”

Bo has to go help with Shawn. “None of this would have happened if you would have been there,” Hope says, “I meant what I said. If something happens to Shawn I will never forgive you.”

The cop says Shawn apparently walked away from the accident. People saw him get on his bike hit the gas (glass?) and pile straight into a tree. They thought he was trying to commit suicide.

Belle gets Shawn home. She says he needs to tell his parents. Shawn thinks Bo has probably moved on to looking for Georgia. Belle says Shawn needs to get to bed. He says he’s too wired to get to sleep, “The only way I’m getting to sleep now is if you’re going with me.”

Kate tells Abe the pills are painkillers. John wanted to keep it quiet so they didn't tell Abe. Abe says he’s not turning John in, “If there were a drug out there that could make me see I would take it. We’re both in the same position. It’s gotta be killing John not being able to search for Phillip. If I could find a pill that would make me my old self...” Well, there’s always Viagra.

Lexi knows how difficult this is but she can’t condone giving John more drugs. Kate has to go. Abe cautions her not to be caught with the drugs.

“Give John my best,” says Abe.

“I wonder what she'll do,” asks Lexi.

“I hope she gives him the drugs,” says Abe.

“Don’t worry Shane,” says John, “I’ll be ready to go.” He hangs up, “God help me, I need those pills.”

“Why wouldn’t Bo trust me,” asks Patrick, “I have no way to prove I’m innocent.”

Billie will try to get Bo to listen, “He has a real problem with us being friends.”

“Is Bo jealous of us,” asks Patrick.

Mimi whines, “You deserve to have kids. That’s why I’m letting you go.” She gives back the engagement ring, “You should get your money back.”

Rex isn’t taking the ring back or the proposal, “I said you were right. But you didn’t let me finish. It isn’t fair, but it isn’t your fault.” He takes a knee, “Mimi I proposed to you for better or worse, in sickness or in health. Those weren’t just words. I want to spend the rest of the Days Of Our Lives together. Nothing will change that.”

Sami flashes back to hearing about Mimi’s abortion, “And now she can never have kids. Poor Meems.”

Rex says he is sure. They will love their adopted kids just as much as if they were their own. He can’t wait to be her husband. They kiss as Stami watches, “And now it’s Mimi’s turn to be tortured.”

Hope can’t believe this was deliberate. Bo says it was an accident. They figure he drove off with Belle. Bo tells the cop to keep it off the record.

Hope is going to chase after Shawn. Bo says, “Now that we know Shawn’s OK will you forgive me?” Hope stares.

“Belle will you stay with me? I need you so much tonight,” says Shawn.

“I can’t be with you while I am still married to Phillip.”

Shawn says, “You’re not in love with him and we need each other so much. Just for tonight, don’t turn me away.” Belle stares.

“You want me as much as I want you,” says Shawn.

“If you keep pressuring me I will leave and never come back,” threatens Belle, “You’re hurting. I am too. I want to be with you. Don’t make this any harder. Please understand.”

Shawn says, “I understand and that is why I love you so much and I know when we say our vows it will be forever. I would wait forever if I had to. So all I ask is just one thing. Will you stay with me until I fall asleep? Lay down on the bed with me until I fall asleep.”

Lexi says this will only make John’s addiction more difficult.

Abe says John has to do this and in the end he will beat it, “I just wish I could help John instead of stumbling around this house. We both know it’s not just my eyesight we’re learning to live without.”

Kate gets home to the mess, “OMG, What happened? What’s going on?”

John asks where she has been, “You took the drugs with you when you knew I needed them. Give them to me. I don’t have time to play games, you wanna see your son or not? Shane just called me. The ISA has nothing. They want me to head up the search. I have to neutralize this pain.”

“I understand and I’d do anything to save my son. What happens if I give you the drugs and I lose you both,” asks Kate.

Patrick thinks Bo is jealous. “It’s about to get worse,” says Billie, “This doll could be really bad news for you.”

Rex and Mimi kiss. Stami watches. Rex goes for ice cream at the all-night ice cream parlor.

Stami comes up, “You’re getting married?”

“Yes and my six-foot-two fiancée will be back any minute,” says Mimi.

Stami says, “I have some things to offer, baby cribs and stuff like that. I’m sure you want a big family don’t you?”

“Who are you,” asks Mimi.

“You can’t have any kids can you? And we both know why not,” says Stami.

Stami sneers, “I know all about it. Big secret. You got pregnant and didn’t tell him. Didn’t tell him how you got unpregnant either.”

“What do you want from me?”

“I’m just a friend with a little advice. Nothing’s going to work out. Your happy life is doomed. You’re doomed. Rex comes strolling back with the ice cream, “What the hell?”

Patrick asks, “How could the doll be bad news for me?”

Billie says Bo will want to question Philip about the doll, “Are you sure you have nothing to hide?”

“I can handle anything Bo throws at me.”

That’s not important,” says Lexi.

Abe is morose, “Yes it is, to me and to you if I can’t be a husband to my wife it’s not fair to you. You’re young, beautiful desirable and you deserve more than I can give you right now.” She hugs him. She loves him he loves her that’s all that matters.

John turns the TV on to Phillip’s permanent goodbye. Kate says, “I know what you’re trying to do. I know Phillip’s in danger. I think about him every moment.”

“Are you going to give me the drugs or let your son die?”

Belle and Shawn cuddle. He says this feels so good. She tells him to get some sleep. He apologizes for what happened tonight. He never wanted to hurt her. She doesn’t know what she would do if she lost him. He doesn’t want to pressure her into something she’s not ready for.

Ho and Dope come into Shawn’s apartment. They sneak into the bedroom and see Shawn and Belle together. “He’s definitely OK,” says Bo.

“They look perfect together,” says Hope.

“Just like you and me when we were that age,” says Bo. They go into the living room.

Hope says, “When we were their age nothing could come between us. That was before Billie.”

“Billie’s not a threat to us.”

“You still believe that, too? Things happen, Bo. Things change. We sometimes have no control over them,” says Hope.

“Belle and Shawn will be OK. You and I will be OK. I love you too much to let you go.”

Hope says, “I’m afraid after tonight nothing will be the same for us.” FF on Ho and Dope.

“There is only one thing left to do,” says Jack. Tony asks, “And what is that?” POW, right in the kisser.

Marlena jumps up and down, “We've been rescued! We’re going home!”

John says to Kate, “When Phillip comes home with the American flag draped around his coffin, it will just prove you’re a lousy mother!” POW, right in the kisser.

Billie tells Jennifer, “Patrick’s the best.” Jennifer says, “Yes, I don’t know what I would do without him.” Billie says, “You’re starting to have feelings for Patrick.”

I get a kick out of Phillip's "permanent goodbye" on the Salem Network News. I'm surprised it didn't interrupt his goodbye speech with the big bulletin that Shawn was missing. I know the entire town would have been worried. HAHAHAHA
