Johnny and Meadow come to a decision. MEADOW: Okay.
Meanwhile, the ISA go to their next destination. JOY: Don’t think I’ve ever met royalty before.
And later this week, Joey and Alanis renew their vows. JOEY: I love you.
But will everything go according to plan? ALANIS: Are you okay?
All this and more next week on THE MELASWEN PARADOX!
If Johnny and Meadow try to give this baby up for adoption, they should realize their families will fight them on this especially the DiMeras because if I know EJ, Andre, Kristen and Megan, they won't want Johnny's baby being raised by total strangers that's for sure and you know how Stefano was about family. I know Sami would fight them on this like how she did on the actual show with Allie and Henry.
But then if they abort their baby, I wonder if they won't just end up regretting it later on?
I think the ISA agents end up in Alamainia
But I think at the vow renewal that it will be like a trigger for Joey and he will go into shock and start convulsing and then after all that he will end up getting his memories back. Because it will all come rushing back.

SUKOSOL HOTEL - BANGKOK, THAILAND Joy had put the tracker on the table in John and Steve’s room. It showed a hologram of the two remaining gems to be found. JOHN: So these are our options, seeing as we know that Drew has the Pink Opal, and that Andrew is working on getting it back from him. HAWK: England and continental Europe. STEVE: Well, if we’re going by proximity, the continent’s closer. JOHN: That’s a fact. Plus, it’s the last of the actual Towers, the one in England is the base. Joy, can you zoom in on the Amethyst? Joy pressed a button on the tracker. The hologram changed to one of the Amethyst Tower, floating above a city in Europe. STEVE: Looks like it’s just outside of France. You recognize it, partner? JOHN: Oh, I do. STEVE: All right, folks. Let’s pack it up and head on out. We’ve got a royal engagement to get to. JOY: Royal? This’ll be cool! I don’t think I’ve ever met royalty before. STEVE: Well, you’re about to. Next stop - Europe.
FAIRGROUNDS JOHNNY: We should probably wait to discuss this when we’re alone. Meadow’s eyes narrowed. JOHNNY: I’m not trying to put it off. Look, Allie and her girlfriend already overheard us. If we don’t want people to know until we’ve made a decision, then it’s probably best not to bring it up in public. MEADOW: That’s a good point. All right, once we get back, though… JOHNNY: Totally. MEADOW: So, how about the ferris wheel, then? Johnny held out his arm. JOHNNY: This way, m’lady. Johnny and Meadow walked towards the ferris wheel.
Sydney, Silver and Neveah climbed off of the wagon. SYDNEY: That was so cool! NEVEAH: Totally! SYDNEY: I swear, that hayride gets better every year! SILVER: It was a lot of fun! Thanks for holding my hand, Nev. NEVEAH: No problem. You good? Silver nodded. SYDNEY: So, you guys ready to get some cider? SILVER: Absolutely! Let’s go!
Joey and Alanis were over by the row of games, playing skeeball. The ball Alanis had just thrown landed in the center hole. Several tickets came pouring out of the machine. ALANIS: Yes! JOEY: Nice throw! ALANIS: Thank you. JOEY: Man, with that arm you’ve got, I oughta tell the coach over at Salem U about you. Alanis and Joey giggled. ALANIS: Oh, he’s got jokes! Alanis kissed Joey on the cheek. JOEY: You know it. Joey rubbed the back of his neck. ALANIS: You okay? JOEY: Yeah, just this weird twinge in my neck. I’ve had a bit of a headache since I got out of class today. ALANIS: Do you need to get checked out? JOEY: No, I’m sure it’s nothing. I probably just moved it wrong during practice today. ALANIS: All right, if you’re sure. If it gets worse, though, let me know. JOEY: I will.
DIMERA MANSION André looked over some papers in Rolf’s lab. Bart ran in. BART: Mr. D, big news! ANDRE: Yes, what is it, Bart? BART: I’m going to be an uncle! I mean, no, not me. You. You are going to be an uncle! A great-uncle, even! Not that you’re not already a great uncle, but- ANDRE: Could you perhaps stop babbling and get to the point, Bart? Bart sighed. BART: Okay. I was out scouting, like you asked, and I overheard Johnny and that girlfriend of his, Meadow, saying something about a baby. Then his half-sister Allie and her girlfriend showed up and asked what they were talking about, and Johnny told her that Meadow is pregnant!
Andre knows about Johnny & Meadow's baby thanks to Bart...Andre knows he is going to be a great uncle to this baby and now that he knows, I wonder what Andre plans on doing about this? I mean this baby is going to be Stefano's first great grandchild and this baby will be EJ's grandson or granddaughter so I wonder if Andre tells EJ and that is how EJ finds out about his son Johnny's baby?
Looks like that secret won't stay secret very long
The Tower looks like I was wrong...the other 3...I mean we know Drew has one of them in his possession but the other 2 are in England 🏴 and France 🇫🇷 so it looks like the ISA are on the move
Andrew trying to get that Tower back from his Uncle Drew...good luck with that because it seems Drew has become more dangerous

DIMERA MANSION ANDRE: You’re sure about this? BART: Absolutely! Heard it from the horse’s mouth. André considered this. BART: Not a real horse, obviously. I mean, I heard it from Johnny and Meadow. They were discussing what they should do about the baby. ANDRE: Well, they’re going to keep it, of course. The child is a DiMera. One of Stefano’s heirs. It shall be raised here.
Johnny and Meadow sat down on the edge of his bed. JOHNNY: So, you wanted us to decide on what we should do? MEADOW: I think we need to. Allie knows, and we’ll have to start telling other people eventually. They’ll figure it out, anyway. By the end of the month, I’ll be three months pregnant. I’ll probably start showing around Thanksgiving or Christmas. Johnny nodded. JOHNNY: Like I said before, whatever you want to do, I’ll support you. Whether that means keeping it, getting rid of it, or…anything else. MEADOW: I don’t necessarily want to get rid of it. But I also don’t think I’m ready to be a mother. I want to be a mother eventually, but I don’t know if I’m ready for that. What about you? JOHNNY: I mean, yeah, I think it’d be cool to have a kid at some point. I don’t think I’m ready for it, either, though. If you don’t want to…you know…we could always put it up for adoption. Dr. Horton said that was an option at one of your appointments, right? MEADOW: She did. JOHNNY: What do you think about that? Meadow sighed. MEADOW: I can’t deny that it would be hard. But, I think it might be what’s best. I’m not in a place where I’m ready to take care of a child, it wouldn’t be fair to the baby if we didn’t do what was best for it. JOHNNY: Exactly. MEADOW: Would you be okay with it if we did put the baby up for adoption? JOHNNY: Well, like you said, it’s what’s for the best. Besides, I know a handful of lawyers. Justin, Aiden, Don. Heck, my Dad even practiced law for a while. I’m sure one of them’s got to have some experience with this kind of thing. MEADOW: So, we’ll talk to one of them and see what we have to do to set things up. JOHNNY: Exactly. Meadow took Johnny’s hand. MEADOW: I’m so glad I have you through all this. JOHNNY: Of course you do. I’m not going anywhere. Johnny put his arms around Meadow and kissed her forehead.
ISA SUPERJET The team had loaded up the jet, and final checks were being made before take-off. HAWK: So, what part of France are we going to, again? JOHN: Well, it’s not exactly France. It’s actually a micronation just outside of Paris. It technically exists within France, but is considered its own sovereignty with its own government. JOY: Sort of like Alamainia or Aremid, then. JOHN: That’s a fact. HAWK: And we’re going there because the Amethyst fell into the possession of this European princess? JOHN: Princesses, plural. Fortunately, barring any unforeseen interference by Drew or someone working for him, this should go fairly smoothly. HAWK: How do you figure that? JOHN: Because I happen to know the possessors of the Amethyst very well. The eldest of the three princesses is my daughter. And the younger two, her nieces, are my granddaughters. JOY: You never told us you were royalty! John laughed. JOHN: Oh, I’m far from royalty, Joy. Far from it. But, as part of my long, complicated, multiple choice past, I did have a passionate affair with a royal. One that, though unknown to me for the longest time, produced a pair of twins. I’ll tell you that story once we get going. Steve came in from the cockpit. STEVE: Looks like you won’t have to wait too long, partner. Pilot says we’re all set. JOHN: Excellent. STEVE: Buckle up, everyone. It’s off to Europe, and the Palace Von Amberg.
DIMERA MANSION Later that night, after everyone else had gone to bed, André went into the living room. He turned on a lamp and gazed at the portrait of Stefano which hung on the wall. He smiled. ANDRE: Oh, Stefano. If only you were here to celebrate the joyous news. A new DiMera heir is on the way. Your first great-grandchild. One day, young Giovanni’s child shall rule the DiMera Empire. I promise you, he or she will be raised to be a true DiMera. I’ll make sure of it.
Andre doesn't know that Johnny and Meadow plan on giving this baby up for adoption but he is going to have to tell his brother Johnny's father EJ about the baby
Plus when Sami finds out about the baby, she is going to insist on Johnny and Meadow keeping the baby. Because she won't want her grandson or granddaughter being raised by total strangers. Even if she has to take them to court, she will. I mean she did with Allie and Henry on the actual show. She very well could do the same here going against her own son and Meadow and Sami would have Lucas by her side which would strengthen her case.
I can't believe that Sami and Andre could be on the same side but they could be. Andre won't want this baby being raised by total strangers either. But he wants the baby raised as a DiMera. So if he finds out about them trying to give this baby up, what will he do?
Meadow is going to start showing so she can't exactly keep this secret for long because people will figure it out that she is pregnant.
So I'm guessing John is about to see Greta, his daughter and his granddaughters.

HORTON CENTER Eric had let Joey use his office to change. Whilst doing that, he was talking on the phone. JOEY: How’s things going out there? Do you think you’re close to completing the mission?
SIDE-BY-SIDE: HORTON CENTER/ISA SUPERJET STEVE: I sure hope so. You know it kills me that I can’t be there to see you and Nightingale renew your vows. JOEY: I know. I wish you could, too, but I also get it. Mom’s recording the whole thing, so I’m sure she’ll tell you all about it and show you the video. STEVE: That’s good. JOEY: Anyway, at least you were there for the actual wedding. STEVE: That is true. You remember anything about it yet, by the way? JOEY: I wish I did. Occasionally, I’ll hear a piece of music, and it sounds familiar, but that could just be from hearing Al play it. She’s always got some kind of music going, whether it’s her playing piano, singing or just listening to music. STEVE: Makes sense. Well, I gotta go. We’re gonna be touching down at our next stop soon. I’m sure you and Alanis are gonna have a beautiful day. JOEY: Thanks. Good luck out there. STEVE: You too. I love you, Joe. JOEY: Love you, too, Dad.
HORTON CENTER As Joey hung up his phone, there was a knock at the door. JOEY: Come in! Kayla walked in. JOEY: Hey, Mom. KAYLA: Hi, sweetheart. You look so wonderful! JOEY: Thanks. KAYLA: Are you ready? JOEY: I am. I know Al and I are already married, but it’ll be nice to have a ceremony I remember. Joey winced slightly. KAYLA: Honey, what’s wrong? JOEY: Just a headache. I’m fine. KAYLA: Are you sure? I can check you out if you need to. JOEY: No, I’m good, I swear. It’ll pass. Anyway, it’s not like I can be late to my own vow renewal. KAYLA: It’s also not like they can’t wait for a few minutes. They’re hardly gonna start without you. JOEY: Mom, I appreciate the concern, but I’m fine. If I didn’t think I was, I’d let you know. KAYLA: All right, if you’re sure.
In another room, Claire was helping Alanis get ready. ALANIS: Thanks for all your help! CLAIRE: No problem. I am more than happy to help. Today’s gonna be great, just like your wedding day. ALANIS: I’m really excited for it! CLAIRE: Well, I would hope so. It’s very exciting! ALANIS: You’ve got the music ready, right? CLAIRE: It’s all set up. The music’s set up, Abe’s ready, Joey should be ready in a few minutes. Since it’s just family and close friends, everyone’s already here. This is gonna be great! ALANIS: You’re the best! Claire and Alanis hugged. There was a knock on the door. ALANIS: Come in! Stephanie stuck her head in. STEPHANIE: You guys ready? ALANIS: Yep. STEPHANIE: Awesome! You look great! ALANIS: Thank you! CLAIRE: Let’s go. Claire and Alanis took each other’s arm and walked out.
