PARK It is now a few days after the wedding. J.J. sat in the park, guitar in hand. He was strumming it and looking at a picture of Paige. Click here to listen to the song he's singing J.J. (singing): Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend. To the heart and mind, ignorance is kind. There's no comfort in the truth. Pain is the hole you find. Should've known better, yeah. I feel so unsure as I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor. As the music dies, something in your eyes calls to mind a silver screen and all it's sad goodbyes. I'm never gonna dance again. Guilty feet have got no rhythm. Though it's easy to pretend, I know you're not a fool. Should've known better than to cheat a friend and waste the chance that I've been given. So I'm never gonna dance again the way I danced with you.
CLAIRE'S ROOM Claire sat on her bed, thinking of the kiss, and J.J. CLAIRE (singing): Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend. To the heart and mind, ignorance is kind. There's no comfort in the truth. Pain is the hole you find. I'm never gonna dance again. Guilty feet have got no rhythm. Though it's easy to pretend, I know you're not a fool. Should've known better than to cheat a friend and waste the chance that I've been given. So I'm never gonna dance again the way I danced with you.
PARK/CLAIRE'S ROOM – SIDE-BY-SIDE SCENE Claire stands, as does J.J. CLAIRE (singing): Tonight the music seems so loud. I wish that we could lose this crowd. J.J. (singing): Maybe it's better this way. We'd hurt each other with the things we'd want to say. CLAIRE (singing): We could have been so good together. J.J. (singing): We could have lived this dance forever. J.J. & CLAIRE (singing): But now who's gonna dance with me? J.J. (singing): Please stay. J.J. & CLAIRE: And I'm never gonna dance again. Guilty feet have got no rhythm. Though it's easy to pretend, I know you're not a fool. Should've known better than to cheat a friend and waste the chance that I've been given. So I'm never gonna dance again the way I danced with you. Now that you've gone... CLAIRE (singing): Now that you've gone... J.J. (singing): Now that you've gone, was what I did so wrong... CLAIRE (singing): So wrong that you had to leave me alone?
PARK J.J. stopped strumming. He was unaware that Daniel had been behind him for the last few minutes. DANIEL: Hey.
DIMERA MANSION There was a knock at the door. André opened it. Roman and Bo were on the other side. ANDRE: Well, if it isn't the Brady boys. Sorry, I don't really have time to chat. ROMAN: That's okay, we're here on business, not a social call. ANDRE: And what business do we have? BO: You locking me up in that dungeon and Melaswen, for starters. ANDRE: I'm sorry, but I've no idea as to what you are referring. BO: Shall I jog his memory a little bit? ROMAN: We certainly could. BO: You tied me down to a chair for a year and a half and tortured me. Following that, you abandoned me on Melaswen. ANDRE: I've no recollection of that, at all. However, I must apologize for anything that may or may not have been done to you in that time. BO: I'm sure. ROMAN: Never the less, we have enough witnesses and quite a number of questions that must be answered down at the station. Bo, would you like to do the honors? BO: You can cuff him, I'll take care of the rest. Roman put handcuffs on André ANDRE: Do we really need to do this again? BO: André DiMera, you are under arrest for kidnapping and torturing of a police officer, assaulting a police officer, and at least two other counts of kidnapping. ANDRE: At least? You mean, you don't know how many you're accusing me of doing? BO: You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. I'm sure you can afford one, and boy will you need it. Do you understand these rights as I have read them to you? ANDRE: Yes. Roman led André to his squad car. ANDRE (whispering): You will regret this.
OMG! Awesome song choices for the reception. Glad that Chelsea is gonna stay around for her dad. It was so sweet of Victor to be understanding of her desire to wait and promising to basically give her the honeymoon of her dreams.
So Claire's having feelings for JJ. Well this probably won't end well. Glad Daniel showed up. Hopefully he can get JJ through this without too much fall out.

PARK J.J. looked up. J.J.: Oh, hey. How much of that did you hear? DANIEL: Enough. So, what's going on? J.J.: Daniel, I screwed up, man. Daniel took a seat next to J.J. DANIEL: How so? J.J.: I...you were at Chelsea and Max's wedding, right? DANIEL: Yeah. Me and Nicole, and Parker. He was the ring bearer. J.J.: Yeah. So, you know that me and Claire played some music. DANIEL: Totally. You guys were great. J.J.: Thanks...but, that's kind of the problem. DANIEL: What do you mean? J.J.: We took a break at one point. And, during the break...she kissed me. I swear, I didn't even know what was going on! As soon as I realized it, as soon as I realized that she was kissing me, I broke away from her. DANIEL: So, I'm not seeing how you screwed up. You told Claire that you had a girlfriend, and that you can't do that kind of thing. So, why would you have anything to apologize for? It sounds to me like you did the right thing. J.J.: The thing is, I haven't told Paige yet. I'm too afraid that Paige is gonna hate me. DANIEL: No, J.J., no she isn't. J.J.: How do you figure that? DANIEL: Because she knows you. She loves you. As long as you explain to her exactly what happened, that Claire kissed you, and that you didn't want it, and you broke away from it as soon as you could, as long as you explain the truth to her, she won't hate you. She'll believe you. Just tell her what you told me. J.J. nodded. J.J.: Right. Okay. I just gotta tell her the truth. DANIEL: And, I would do it before anyone else does. This is something you need to tell her. J.J. nodded. He stood up. J.J.: Right. I'll go do that, then. DANIEL: Do you want me to come with you? J.J. No. No, that's okay. Like you said, it's gotta come from me. This is something I need to do alone. But, thanks, Daniel. DANIEL: No problem. Daniel and J.J. hugged, and then J.J. left.
SALEM P.D. Roman escorted André into the station. Bo was a few steps behind them. He was walking slowly. And stopped when he got to his office. Roman looked back. ROMAN: You okay, Bo? Bo hesitated. BO: Um...do you think you could take him the rest of the way yourself? I gotta sit down. ROMAN: Sure. ANDRE: See you later, Commander Brady. André smiled to himself. ANDRE (thinking): Hopefully. Roman led André away. Meanwhile, Bo, with some effort, made his way to his desk. He had a tight grip on his desk, and it appeared to be more of an effort to move his legs than it should be. By the time that he got to his desk, he was panting and short of breath. Hope noticed, and came out of her office over to his. HOPE: Brady? BO: Hey...Fancy Face... HOPE: Are you okay? Bo shook his head. BO: I don't think so. HOPE: What's wrong? Hope walked over to Bo. BO: I...I think you'll need...to call Dr. Horton...and an ambulance. HOPE: Okay. I will. What's going on? BO: I...I can't... Hope got out her phone and started dialing. HOPE: You can't what? BO: My legs...I can't feel my legs.

SALEM PLACE J.J. and Paige sat down at a table. J.J.: Thanks for meeting me. PAIGE: No problem. I'm always happy to spend time with you. J.J.: Yeah, I'm glad to spend time with you, too. PAIGE: So, what's up? J.J.: I, um...I have something I need to talk to you about. PAIGE: Okay. J.J.: The other night, at Chelsea and Max's wedding, during the break we were taking from playing music...um...Claire kissed me. PAIGE: What? J.J.: I swear, I didn't even realize it at first, and I didn't want it! The second I realized what was going on, I backed away and told her that, that I don't do that sort of thing. That I have a girlfriend. I swear to you, Paige, I didn't do anything. I would never do that to you. Paige took J.J.'s hand. PAIGE: J.J., it's okay. I believe you. J.J.: You do? PAIGE: Of course I do. I know that you would never do anything to hurt me. J.J.: No, of course not. Paige, you are the love of my life. I don't know what I would do without you. PAIGE: I don't know what I'd do without you, either. But, we'll never have to worry about that, I promise. No matter what happens, we'll face it together. J.J.: Okay. Good. J.J. and Paige smiled, then kissed.
SALEM UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL Bo had been rushed into a room on a stretcher. Scotty, Tommy and Addie were soon in the room, looking over him. Scotty walked over. SCOTTY: What happened? HOPE: I have no idea. He was out on the job with Roman, and when he came back to the office, he was having a hard time moving. He was short of breath. And, a few minutes after he sat down, when I checked on him, he told me he lost feeling in his legs. Scotty nodded. ADDIE: This isn't good. Shawn-D ran in. SHAWN-D: Mom? HOPE: Shawn! Hope and Shawn-D hugged. SHAWN-D: What's going on? HOPE: I don't know. Something's wrong with your dad's legs, and he's out of breath. Shawn-D took a deep breath. Addie walked over to them. ADDIE: We're gonna do what we can, but we need you guys to clear the room. HOPE: I'm not going anywhere! ADDIE: I'm sorry, Hope. I can't imagine how hard this is. We'll do what we can, and I promise, as soon as he is ready for visitors, we will let you know. SHAWN-D: Come on, let's take a seat. Shawn-D and Hope walked out of the room, and sat down in some of the nearby chairs. Kayla had gotten off of her shift, so she came and sat with Hope and Shawn-D. A little while later, Chelsea and Ciara came and sat with them, as well. After quite a while, Tommy came out of the room. Hope stood and walked over to him. HOPE: Uncle Tommy? Tommy took a deep breath. TOMMY: I'm sorry, Hope. You, um...you'll need to call his family to come in. He doesn't have much time left, and they'll want to be here. Hope nodded. KAYLA: I'll call Steve, Kim, Roman and Frankie. CHELSEA: I'll call Max. Shawn-D put an arm around his mom. SHAWN-D: I'll call everyone else. HOPE: Okay...thank you. Ciara took her mom by the hand, and the two went into Bo's room.
