SALEM P.D. ROMAN: Hope filed for divorce over a year ago. BO: Yeah, that's what you, Steve and ma keep telling me. What I wanna know is, how could she have divorced me? I never got any papers, and I sure as hell didn't sign them. ROMAN: Well, enough time passed that you didn't have to. BO: Yeah. So, now she's supposedly with some other guy. Waylon Jenny, or something? ROMAN: Aiden Jennings. He's a lawyer. A good one, too. BO: I don't really care how good he is, I just wanna go back to my wife. So, do you think we can finish up this talk another time? Roman sighed. ROMAN: Well, maybe I'm just in a good mood for seeing you for the first time in three years, but I'm gonna let you off with a warning this time. But, don't let me catch you speeding again. BO: You got it, bro. I'll see ya later. Bo got up and left.
BRADY HOUSE HOPE: They want you to kill me? AIDEN: Yes. And, I was going to frame the necktie killer to do it. HOPE: What? AIDEN: But then, I couldn't. Hope, I could never kill you. Never. I love you. HOPE: I love you, too. AIDEN: So...what now? HOPE: Now, we figure out a plan. AIDEN: What do you mean? HOPE: This is exactly what I've been waiting for: a chance to bring down the DiMera's. With everything you've just told me, I think we've actually got them this time. AIDEN: But aren't you afraid the DiMera's will come after you? HOPE: Aiden, I've been tackling the DiMera's for over half of my life. I'm used to them by now. Besides, we can't let them get away with what they did to you, and what they almost had you do to me. We're going to get them this time. AIDEN: You know something, Detective Brady? I love you. HOPE: Well, that's a strange coincidence, because it just so happens that I love you too, Mr. Jennings. Hope and Aiden hugged and kissed. AIDEN: Okay. Let's not spend our wedding night worrying about the DiMera's. I'm gonna go upstairs and burn the clothes I was gonna use to frame whoever the real necktie killer is. HOPE: Sounds good. Aiden went upstairs, and Hope went back to the couch. A few minutes later, there was a knock at the door. HOPE: I'll get it! The knocks came again, more hurridly, as Hope got up to answer the door. HOPE: Coming! I'm coming! Hope opened the door. Before she knew it, Bo had come in and planted a kiss on her. BO: Hey, Fancy Face. I'm home. HOPE: Wha...But...How...Bo?! BO: Yeah, it's me. I'm back. Didja miss me? Just then, Aiden came down the stairs. AIDEN: Hope, who is it? Bo looked from Hope to Aiden, back to Hope. BO: Never mind who I am, who the hell are you?

BRADY HOME Aiden finished coming down the stairs, and stood next to Hope. AIDEN: Aiden Jennings. And, who do I have the pleasure of speaking with? Aiden held out his hand. Bo ignored him. Sensing that he would get no handshake, Aiden put his hand back down. BO: I'm Bo Brady, Hope's husband. AIDEN: Ah, I see. Well, I hate to tell you this, Bo...may I call you Bo? BO: No. AIDEN: Either way, I'm Hope's husband. BO: Which is impossible. HOPE: No, it isn't. We got divorced, Brady. BO: We can't have. I never got any papers, and I certainly didn't sign any. HOPE: There was a long enough period to where you didn't have to. BO: And another thing, why would you divorce me? HOPE: Oh, let's think for a moment, maybe because you abandoned me and Ciara. BO: Fancy Face, this really isn't what it seems to be. I assumed that I'd be gone a few weeks, a month at most. HOPE: And somehow, that month turned into three years. Three years where we had no idea where you were. Three years where I had to try to explain to our daughter why her daddy wouldn't be home to tuck her in at night. Three years. BO: Look, you think I don't know that? You think I don't regret every single second that I had to be away from you two? HOPE: Look, I can't deal with this right now. We will talk about this, all three of us. But, not tonight. Aiden and I just got married. I think it's best that you go.
DIMERA MANSION André sat in his Zen Room, meditating. His meditation was disturbed by a knock on the door. He got up and opened it to reveal Harold. ANDRE: I trust you know how to read. Did you not see the sign on the door? HAROLD: Of course I did, Mr. DiMera. I must sincerely apologize for disturbing you. However, you did request that I alert you when I am preparing Stefano's evening tea. André looked down and saw that Harold was carrying a tray with tea on it. ANDRE: Very good. Set it down. I shall deliver it in person. HAROLD: As you wish, sir. Harold set down the tray, bowed, and left the room. André quickly changed into a three piece suit, picked up the tray, examined it, and went into the main room of the mansion, where Stefano sat in his wheelchair. ANDRE: Here we are, father. Your evening tea. STEFANO: Tea, tea. Always tea. Whatever happened to having a nice brandy or Merlow in the evening hours, hm? André shook his head as he put the tray down. ANDRE: No, I'm sorry, father. But, you know what the doctors said. It's tea until you get your strength back. STEFANO: Doctors, ha! What do those quacks know, anyway? ANDRE: Ordinarily, I'd agree. But, in this case, I can see their point. You do seem to be growing weaker. Which, after all, is why you asked me back here. To take care of you, as well as the business. STEFANO: Yes, yes. You are a good son. Even though for years we thought you were my nephew, I have always wanted a son like you, André. ANDRE: And I have always looked up to you as a father. You taught me everything I know. André took Stefano's hand in his and patted it. STEFANO: Now, where is Chad? I have not seen him here lately. ANDRE: Oh, I assume he's off with Abigail Deveraux, working on part of the plan. I shouldn't worry about him. André, who had been preparing Stefano's tea for the last minute, handed Stefano a cup. ANDRE: There we are. Now, if you'll excuse me, father, I'm off to continue with my meditations. STEFANO: Yes, quite. I shall have Harold take this when I've finished. André kissed Stefano on the forehead, went back to the Zen Room, and changed back into his robes. He walked to a part of the room that had a secret door, which he opened revealing Chad, also in robes, lying on the floor.

DIMERA MANSION ANDRE: Get up. André nudged Chad. ANDRE: Get up. Chad woke up. André handed him a sword, and then unsheathed his own. ANDRE: Are you ready to continue your training? CHAD: André...I've been training for 12 hours straight. I can barely stand. ANDRE: Death does not wait for you to be ready. Chad attempts to stand, but André quickly has him on the ground again. ANDRE: Death knows no kindness or patience. And make no mistake, little brother, when you train with me, you face death.
GRAVEYARD J.J. walked along in a graveyard, his guitar on his back and a small boquet of flowers in his hand. He walked up to a stone, and stopped. J.J.: Hey. It's me. Sorry I haven't visited in a while. He put the flowers down on Paige's grave. J.J.: I was thinking...about music, ya know. And about us. I loved that we had such similar tastes in music. I loved everything about you, Paige. And...I'm doing my best here to survive. Anyway, there was one song I never got to play for you that I wish I had. So, I guess there's no time like the present. J.J. pulled the guitar over his shoulder and began strumming. Click here to follow along with the song he plays. J.J. (singing): You gave your life for me, you gave your life for love. The feelings still remain, though you're on a different plane. Your world is full of angels, you've become one. With God above, you're free... As J.J. was singing, a flood of memories comes to him. J.J. and Paige first meeting. J.J. (singing): You were so beautiful. You are so beautiful. The love you left behind will carry on. You gave your heart and soul to everyone. J.J. and Paige at the beach, going for a late night swim. J.J. (singing): You never lived a lie. You showed me how to cry. The life that you embraced always let you down. Paige and J.J.'s first kiss. J.J. (singing): Yet you're the only one That stood your ground. No matter what they say... J.J. playing music for Paige. J.J. (singing): You were so beautiful. You are so beautiful. The love you left behind will carry on. You gave your heart and soul to everyone. Paige and J.J. on the couch at the Horton home, cuddling. J.J. (singing): You were so beautiful. You are so beautiful. The love you left behind will carry on. You gave your heart and soul to everyone. Their last kiss. J.J.'s thoughts returned to the present. Unbeknownst to him, Daniel has been standing behind him for the last few minutes. J.J. (singing): You were so beautiful. You are so beautiful. The love you left behind will carry on. (voice breaking) You gave your heart and soul to everyone... J.J. took a deep breath. J.J. (voice breaking): You gave your life for love...I know you're...safe above.... J.J. stopped strumming and put down the guitar. DANIEL: That was beautiful, man. J.J. turned around suddenly.
