To Let Grieve or Not to Let Grieve
Nicole, on her way to Robert’s office, stops when she sees a man inside that she doesn’t recognize him. Instead of interrupting she just listens in.
“No, Sir. I’m sorry. I cannot, will not do what you are asking.”
“Why not? I’m just looking for someone to step up and do the right thing if they see Chad Dimera?”
“No, what you are doing is creating vgilante’s and bounty hunters.”
“He’s killed twice now people want him caught.”
“I want the killer caught as well but because Chad is innocent until proven guilty. I am working with the police and complying with their procedures.”
“I’ve done my homework on this news station of yours, I know that you are partnered with Stefano and Dimera enterprises.”
“Then why did you bother coming here MARCO, BART.”
Marco and Bart enter.
“See this gentleman out, please.”
Edguardo gives Rob a look shaking off Marco’s hand on his arm.
“I will continue to do everything thing the police ask and allow me to do, sir but no more than that. Thank you for coming in.”
After they are gone, Nicole enters and dials the number on the “If you see this man/Chad DiMera wanted picture. After a few seconds she hangs up.
“Wow. The number’s legitimate.”
“Of course it is, Nicole. I told you being a friend to the DiMera family will not prevent me from doing the right thing according to the law.”
“Uh huh, and its not because you think that its all some sort of punishment Chad gets for not being on Stefanos’ team?”
“What do you have for me?”
This week in Salem…
JJ laid into Roman about Kyle being missing and that because of that, his role in the investigation is over.
“Do you think the cops will let JJ go?”
“Does JJ still think Clyde did it?”
“Then it’s time for JJ to pull out.”
“Abigail is helping Chad hide out. Chad asked Abigail to leave Salem with him, but she said she can’t leave her family.”
“Why doesn’t that man harass Abigail about Chad.’
“Not sure he knows about them yet.”
“Ben asked Abigail to leave Salem. She told him the same thing she told Chad.”
“Do you think Ben could be the killer. Nicole?”
“…maybe, maybe not I have no idea. Why, what do you know?”
Andre wants to help Chad, and demanded to know everything about Clyde Weston. What lengths will Andre go to to help his brother ?
“What’s Clyde think about that?”
“How would Clyde know?”
“THE WRITERS FORGOT ABOUT THE BUG CLYDE PLANTED,” Robert yelled out into the hallway.
Nicole just continued.
“I threatened to legally remove Kate from Basic Black, because I feel that she will ruin the company. Kate reminded me why that wouldn’t be a good idea.”
“We kind of ignored Theresa and her ideas, because we had more important things to worry about. Brady saw that she understood that and told her to hang in there.”
“Will the three of us be able to make it all work out.”
“I hope so. I see a big future for the three of you.”
“Marlena being attacked convinced her that Chad didn’t do it, as no actual killer would be that stupid.”
“Do you agree with marlena?”
“I wish they would do real police work.”
“Speaking of police work, new Officer Lani is in Salem, and Rafe already has his little Fresh Eyes working the case. Will Lani be able to help Rafe crack the case.”
“Hope so. This needs to end this before it gets out of hand.”
“Justin threatened Stefano and Andre about protecting Chad, claiming that he knew things about them because of his helping EJ and that he illegally removed evidence from their house.”
“What about? Forget it.”
“Justin see’s Andre, someone who looks like Tony, alive and well and doesn’t’ even flinch? Didn’t Victor tell him The Tony/Philip war thing?”
“He didn’t even bat an eye.
“FORGOT ABOUT THAT TOO,” Rob yelled out.
Nicole again ignored the yelling.
“How do you know about that?”
“Listening in from Chad’s room.”
“Caroline is still seeing Shawn, Sr. Her condition is getting worse. Will Victor and Co. be able to find her the help she needs?”
“Steve went from the airport to the building. They think Bo is being held. How long until they find him.”
“Rob remained quiet, shaking his head.”
“Andre told Aiden that the DiMera’s took care of his gambling debts and that now he belongs to them.”
“That was very nice of them.”
“Sure it was. What will they have Aiden do for them as payback for their favor?”
Aiden loves hope, Nicole.”
“Not sure about that anymore.”
“Theresa broke off her friendship with Anne citing ‘changes’ as the reason.”
“I understand that, but still at the same time I think it’s a mistake.
What will Theresa do next?”
“What did you do now?”
“Jennifer tried to reach out to Eve to no avail.”
“Jennfer and JJ went to Paige’s funeral.”
Eve lost it and let them have it. What’s next for all of them?”
“I feel for both sides. Eve was wrong to make a scene, but they should have gone.”
“Theresa invited them.”
“They should have known better, and Eve is paying for it, she has the right to say who can and can not be there.”
“What about Paige’s wishes?”
“It’s very complicated. Speaking of complicated, you didn’t go to the funeral?”
“No, I didn’t.”
“Did you know Dan was there and Jennifer was being all supportive? Making, ‘I need you, come back to me,’ eyes at him. She’s making a play for your man, Nicole. What are you going to do?
She didn’t do that. Who said she did that?”
“Theresa told me.”
“She did, did she?”
“No, not really.”
“So, you’re just causing trouble?”
“Yup, but she has done it to Dan before.”
“That’s true. Okay, I’ll keep an eye out.”
“Eduardo went on live TV and put up a reward for chad’s capture.
“He told me that’s another reason why i wouldn’t help him. I don’t need Rafe coming in here…” and Rob’s intercom went off
“Detective Hernandez to see you, sir?”
“SEE! Send him in.”
“Stay here, Nicole. When he leaves, we’ll go to lunch.”
Time to turn the hourglass…
