Aiden sat down on the couch next to Hope.
AIDEN: I'm...I'm in trouble. I'm in really big trouble, and I don't know how to get out of it.
HOPE: Okay. What kind of trouble?
AIDEN: You know those gambling debts that I told you about?
AIDEN: Well...I wasn't completely honest with you. They were gambling debts. But, they got paid off.
HOPE: Isn't that good?
AIDEN: In most cases, it would be. In this case, no. In fact, in this case, I would rather have to deal with the loan sharks than who I have to deal with now.
HOPE: Aiden, who paid off your debts?
AIDEN: Stefano DiMera.
AIDEN: He said that he would pay off my debts in exchange for a few favors. One of which was to be Chad's lawyer. And the other one...
HOPE: The other one what? Aiden, what does Stefano want you to do?
Aiden took a deep breath.
AIDEN: In exchange for paying off my gambling debts...he wants me to kill you.
Lani knocked on Roman's door.
She walked into Roman's office.
ROMAN: Officer Price, what can I do for you?
LANI: Well, Commissioner, I was out doing my rounds, and I was giving a ticket for reckless driving. The guy was doing well over the speed limit. I tried to speak with him, but he was beligerent and said something about getting home to his wife. So, I felt that the right call to make was to bring him down here.
ROMAN: That's a little extreme, isn't it?
LANI: Actually, he's the one who gave me the idea. He says that he knows you. He's in one of the interrogation rooms.
Roman put down his pencil.
ROMAN: Okay. I'll check him out.
Roman stood and followed Lani into one of the rooms.
ROMAN: Now, what seems to be the...
BO: Hey, bro.
Roman's mouth fell open.
BO: Yep, it's me. I'm back.
ROMAN: Officer Price, would you please excuse us? I think I've got it taken care of from here.
Lani left the room. Roman took a deep breath.
ROMAN: Okay, I got questions. Number one is this: what da hell are you doin' here?
BO: I told you, I'm back. I'm home. Or, at least, I would be home right now if your brilliant officer hadn't arrested me.
ROMAN: According to Officer Price's report, you were doing 96 in a 40 zone.
BO: I was in a hurry.
ROMAN: Stand up.
ROMAN: Now, the second thing I wanna say to you is...
Roman gave Bo a hug.
ROMAN: It is so good to see you again, little brother.
BO: You too, Roman. Now, can I get outta here? I gotta get home to my wife.
ROMAN: Wife? Bo, I'm sorry to tell you, you don't have a wife anymore.
