Fourteen: Tony Reveals That He Is
the Mastermind; the Captives Frantically
Try to Escape When They Learn He Has
Rigged the Island's Volcano to Explode.
[Air date October
One: The sun is setting on the horizon it is night. [A repeat of the
end of the previous show yet the dialogue and action different] Bo and
Hope, Jack and Jennifer and Baby Deveraux and Patrick are in the passageway
in the di Mera compound. There passage way is filling up with smoke.
Look, you have to get off this island. Save yourself before it's too
What the hell are you talking about?
PATRICK: (Exhales) There's a Volcano that's set to go off.
This whole compound and all New Salem will be buried under tons of molten
Jennifer looks at him confused.
(Cont.) There won't be a shred of evidence that any of you were ever
here if you don't get out of here now!....
PATRICK: (Cont.) While there's still time!
JENNIFER: Oh my gosh!
BO: (Hatred for Patrick in his voice) Jen, there's
something you should know about your buddy, here! He's been working
for di Mera the whole time.
is glaring at Patrick. The smoke is still in the passageway, causing
Hope to cough. Jennifer is confused and cannot believe what Bo is saying.
Looking at Patrick to get him to deny this.
JENNIFER: (Her voice pleading) Patrick?--
PATRICK: Jennifer, I'm sorry, I wish
I had time to explain, but right now you really
need to listen to what I'm telling you! !
HOPE: He's right. If we don't move fast, we're all
dead! Bo and I will stay and look for the others. Jack, take Jennifer
and the baby, and get the hell out of here!
BO: Go back to New Salem and get everyone together
and get down to the docks! !
Patrick appears to be walking away. Bo, with hatred in his voice, tells
him to stop.
PATRICK! You're not going anywhere!
I don't want you telling di Mera what we're up to!
then Bart appears.They all turn to him in horror. Bart is a few feet
away, pointing a gun at them.
None of you are going anywhere! Expect to say "hello"
to our hosts! Or should I say (laughing) "good-bye"?
Continues to laugh maliciously.
"hosts?" As in more than one?
BART: That's a fact, Jack! Count di Mera and his father
are waiting, let's go!
HOPE: (Her worst fears are true, sotto voce)
Oh my God, it's true Stefano is alive.
then a stronger tremor is heard. Jack tries to brace Jennifer and the
goes over to help Jennifer, despite the fact that Jack is doing fine.
He grabs her other arm.
Two: The shaking has stopped. Bart still has a gun on them. Jack is
holding Jennifer, and protecting her and the baby. Bart watches. Bo
has his arm around Hope.
(Indicating to Bo and Hope) Move it! Join your friends!
goes next to the others, Bo stands in front of Bart.
If Stefano di Mera is here, I'd like to see him.
BART: (Motion with his head) I'd like to see him too.
(His voice cracking) I miss the Big Guy! NOW, MOVE!
COME ON, ALL OF YOU!
and Bo go through the door. Jack and Jennifer, and Patrick stay behind.
Patrick takes Jennifer's arm.
(Speaking softly so Bart cannot hear) I swear I'll
find a way to protect you, the baby,
at him, not believing
what he is spewing. He puts his arms around Jennifer.
I really wish I can believe you.
JACK: (Sarcastically to Jennifer) I can't image you'd
be making that mistake any time soon (Glaring at Patrick).
and Jennifer go with Bart. Patrick mutters to himself that there is
not much time left.Then he follows them
Inside Tony's apartment, Jack and Jennifer join Bo and Hope, and the
others, John, Marlena, Abe and Roman; Tony is smug, and is enjoying
his power over everyone, and is smelling a rose. Bart informs him that
he has brought them. [The following scenes is a mix of a bunch of different
dialogue, I will synopsize the major points, and type out the Jack related
material -- which is not much]
Tony has his hand over the top of a fine leather chair, which is turned
away from everyone. Every so often a puff of cigar smoke can be seen.
Bo wonders if that is "his father." Tony nods yes. Tony says
that he, not Stefano was behind it all. Stefano was a "silent partner."
As Tony tells them everything that happened was his doing, Jack and
Jennifer look at each other; while Patrick hovers right in back of them.
He tells them that "his father" was impressed. Bo cannot believe
he went through all this trouble for that. John adds that that was part
of the reason, but the main reason Tony did everything was to get revenge
him. Roman adds that Tony not John, Stefano's trained mercenary was
the true di Mera soldier. They were his game, his chess pieces. They
were just practice for his ultimate goal, Roman tells them; the goal,
world domination. Bo cannot believe how stupid that sounds, and asks
if he thinks he is "Dr. Evil " [from the Austin Powers movies].
Hope thinks he is mad, that even Stefano would not do that. Abe cannot
understand how Tony could put his sister Lexie through allt his pain.
(Disgusted) You are so sick!
JACK: (Angered) You could have killed my wife
thinks he is in need of help. Bo wonders how many more people's lives
will he destroy. Tony replies more than he can think.
Three: Meanwhile in the passage way, Victor has found Nicole. Furious
over her trying to kill him and what she is doing with Brady he begins
to strangle her. However, he is interrupted by Brady. They are then
interrupted by another tremor
Four: Back in Tony's apartment, the gang try to brace themselves as
everything around them is shaking. Like a cartoon villain Tony tells
them that the shaking is just a preview. So the real thing will occur.
They will all *really* die this time. Tony enters something into his
lap top. Hope, Bo, John, Marlena and Abe gather together trying to formulate
a plan. Marlena feels guilty, she tells them she should have seen Tony's
mental state deteriorate, and thus prevented everything. Bo does not
believe Tony is doing it without Stefano telling him to do it. Hope
does not think so, she tells them Stefano would "never go this
far." John thinks it is not worth trying to figure out the "whys"
he is sure it is because Tony is seeking revenge on him for believed
injustices. Bo does not care about the "whys" all he cares
about is for everyone to escape before the island is destroyed.
Jack is massages Jennifer's shoulders to calm her. Patrick is still
hovering around her. Jack bends down, reassuring her. She looks up at
Not to worry, Jennifer, we'll do whatever it takes
to protect you and the baby.
JENNIFER: Listen, don't talk like
that! Please! I can't bare to lose
Jennifer is talking to Jack, Patrick tries to make her listen to him.
Jennifer, I'm going to help you! Jennifer, U'm going to help
you! Make sure you're all safe!
JACK: (Annoyed, pointing to himself) Am I not
standing here?! I think I can protect my own
PATRICK: And how are you going to
do that? You're going to need at least an extra body to overpower the
then Bo walks behind him. He taps Patrick on the should, and Patrick
turns towards him.
Patrick leaves Bo to talk with Jack and Jennifer. Though Patrick does
watch them from a distance.
Listen you guys, we've got a plan. I need you to (motioning towards
Patrick with his head) keep an eye on him. I don't want him pulling
in fast ones.
JACK: Alright (keeping his hands protectively on Jennifer)
I'll do it. What's the plan?
motions for Jack to move a few steps away so he can tell him; Jack follows.
Jennifer is concerned.
if on cue, Hope begins to complain about not being able to breath,
she says she is having a panic attack. Marlena tries to help her and
leads her to the couch. As John and Roman remain by Tony's desk. Bart
is sitting on the arm of anther couch near where they have sat down.
Bo asks if she is okay. Just then Patrick knocks the gun from Bart.
The men try to subdue Bart. Jack runs to the door, so does Patrick.
Jennifer watches on startled. Bo goes over to the door too, protecting
Jennifer. Tony pulls out a gun. He tells them to freeze, "Looks
like our heroes have bungled it *again! This time they have no where
to go but *up*" Just then the room begins to shake again.
Five: Tony watches amused as Jack, Bo and Patrick try to jar the door.
(Throwing his fist in frustration) DAMNIT!
is still by the door. Patrick is standing a few steps away trying to
figure out what to do. Bo too, frustrated, figures out what their next
step will be.
(Talking Patrick, sarcastically) Hey Man, I thought you said you could
JACK: (Equally annoyed with him) Can you get us out
of here, or not!
BO: I think "not!" Since
that's not what di Mera paid him to do.
PATRICK: I said I'd do anything I can to get you all
to safety, and I meant it!
watches from by the door.
Okay, you want to prove whose side you're on? Go distract Tony for as
long as you can. (Cocking sarcastically his head) Do you think you can
PATRICK: (Angry at their lack of trust) Consider it
walks off. Jennifer is with the baby, and watches him pass by her.
[Air date October
One: [The following scenes is a mix of a bunch of different dialogue,
I will synopsize the major points, and type out the Jack related material
-- which is not much] The room begins to shake again. Jennifer is looking
around frantically. Jack is with Jennifer and the baby, his arms around
them. The chair, which everyone assumes Stefano is sitting in, is still
turned away from them.
It's okay. It's all right. It's okay.
couples hug and try to protect each other. Tony, enjoying the spectacle,
tells them that the moment they have been waiting for will soon occur.
Bart stands next to him, aiming his automatic at everyone. "Armageddon
to all those who cross Tony di Mera." Jennifer looks terrified
and she stands close to Jack, who is trying to comfort her. He looks
down at her lovingly. The others do the same with their loved ones.
Marlena tells John that she is going to try to stop "this madness."
John thinks it is too dangerous. Marlena tells him that Stefano is their
only hope, he is the only person to get through to Tony. John realizes
Marlena's right. He agrees and tells her that he will be behind her
all the way. They kiss. She walks towards the desk, trying to reason
with Stefano. "Stefano, this is Marlena. I want to talk to you.
Shots of everyone watching and listening. Jennifer watches, leaning
against Jack, Jack watches intently. She gently pulls the chair around.
screams in horror. In the chair is a decomposed corpse, dressed as Stefano
used to dress. Jennifer puts her hand over her mouth, Jack holds her
his mouth agape. Marlena continues to scream and sob. Jack, squinting
trying to figure if what they are seeing is real; Jennifer, her hand
still over her mouth. She buries her face into Jack's chest; Jack draws
her closer to him and holds her more tightly, as he continues to look
at the corpse. Patrick tries to contemplate what it all means.
Bart stands behind Tony shocked. Tony, obviously cracked, tells them
that he did not want his father to "miss out o the festivities."
He wanted them to witness their demise. Hope tells Bo that without Stefano
around to stop him, "they are just as good as dead."
Just then there is another earthquake. Jack tries to protect Jennifer
and the baby, he catches them, and tries to reassure her.
Oh my gosh.
JACK: It's all right.
Two: Things calm down, and the gang try to regroup. Jack takes Jennifer
by the arm, gently, and leads her back to the couch.
Oh my God.
JACK: let's go sit down.
takes Hope aside to talk to her. He tells her that the volcano is about
to erupt and they are all locked in with a mad man.
Jack is holding Jennifer, and she is kissing their son. Jack tries to
It's all right. (Putting his lips to her head) Jennifer, it's all right!
holds their son even more tightly and rocks him. Jack runs his hand
up and down her arm to sooth her.
Abe tells Roman that they cannot be sure that it really is Stefano.
Roman agrees. They agree that it may be just another mind game. They
continue to talk about needing scientific proof. Abe says they had no
proof that the ashes in the mansion in Salem were really his, and Celeste
never sensed Stefano's presence in the urn.
John examines the corpse as Marlena watches. "My God!" He
notices the Phoenix ring on the corpses finger. He tells Marlena that
he knows for a fact that Stefano *never* removed the ring from his finger.
Marlena tells him that as a doctor she prefers scientific fact; however,
she has a feeling that the corpse really is Stefano.
Bart cannot understand how he had heard Tony speaking to Stefano. Tony
tells him that he has always and will always talk to him. Even Bart
is shocked by Tony's mental state. Tony addresses "Stefano"
and everyone looks on in shock. During Bart's chat with Tony Jack was
watching from the couch. He taps Jennifer on the shoulder. She is still
holding their son tightly
I've got an idea.
JENNIFER: (Frantic with worry, turning to him) No! No,
don't do anything!
JACK: (Waving his hand in the negative) No.... No....
No! Thi.... This is good! We'd be able to use this situations to our advantage.
looks over towards Tony. Jack lovingly rubs her arm with his hand.
Three: Still in the apartment, Patrick has his arm around Jennifer.
She walks off worried about Jack. Patrick goes to Bo and Hope who are
trying to figure out how to get through the door. Patrick goes to them
and tells them that he knows how they can get though, but Bo does not
trust him. He tells them that they can apply pressure from both sides.
Bo reminds him that they are all stuck inside. Just then Brady calls
Bo from the other side. Brady goes looking for something to work on
Bo tells John and Marlena to keep Tony distracted. John asks Tony how
long he has been planning everything. He tells him that he started planning
before "his father died." He had discovered that Stefano was
not going to make him heir to the di Mera power, Stefano wanted his
"Pawn" John to take over. Tony tells how John stole Kristen
from him, for that Tony declares he vowed to be revenged. John tells
him that he still can stop it all. Tony tells him no way. He set up
too much. He had it set up that John was to pay for his death, but "Watson
and Holmes" indicating Jack and Jennifer who found his diary years
before and saved John. John mentions his "incurable blood disease."
Tony tells him, "I *cheated* death!" Tony tells him that he
could not rely on his father to help him. Then he chuckles, and tells
him that Stefano actually did help. He needed a blood transfusion, Stefano
was his only possible donor; however, to help "Stefano had to die!"
John, shocked, realizes that Tony killed and drained Stefano of his
blood! Everyone is sickened. Jack looks disgusted. In distaste Jennifer
looks away. He tells them that he looks pretty good for someone "exsanguinated!"
Four: They discover that Stefano's will from 2002 was his doing. Tony
continues to tell John that his plan was to cause him pain, to get rid
of those people he cared about and to make him believe that his beloved
Marlena was a serial killer. John tells him that he could not tear him
and Marlena apart. John tells him he knows about what happened in the
jungle between her and Roman. Then he asks John if he told her how close
he and Kate came to betraying their marriage vows.
is trying to convince Bart to join them. Jennifer, worried about Jack,
hovers in the background.
(Trying to be manipulate him) Come on Bart. (Gesturing) You can see
it. Your boss is going crazy. Look what he did to Stefano.
seems like he is thinking over what Jack has to say.
(Cont.) The only way that you can be able to save yourself
(seductively) is to turn that gun on Tony. (Motioning
with his head) and help all the rest of us get out of
exhales as he tries to figure out what to do.
Hope goes over to sit with Jennifer, who concerned for his safety, has
been watching Jack from the couch. She puts her arm around Jennifer,
helping to calm her.
How are you two doing?
JENNIFER: (Still focusing all her attention on Jack)
I haven't lost faith, yet.
JENNIFER: I haven't lost faith yet!
JENNIFER: Not in Jack.... or Partick.
tells her that at least they know he was on their side after all. Meanwhile
Patrick and Bo are trying to find a way to break down the door. Bo tells
him that hopefully Brady will find something to help pry open the door.
Just then another tremble, much worse, occurs. Parts of the mansion
begins to fall onto the gang.
tells them that it will not be much longer.
points the machine gun at Jack threateningly. Jack holds out his arms
in a futile protective stance.
Back up! BACK UP!
JACK: (Pleading) Come on Bart, it's now or never!
Now or Never!
BART: It's never then, Deveraux! I.... (Shaking his
head, keeping the gun pointed on Jack) I can't betray the di Meras!
They.... they gave me a home!
time the shaking continues. A big shock nearly sends Bart falling backwards,
yet he keeps his balance and the gun pointed at Jack. Jack tries to
stay on his feet. He cannot believe that Bart is so determined not to
Ugh! See (pointing upward, gesturing) that's what happens if you even
think about betraying them!
JACK: (Trying) Think about this! (Gesturing
trying to convince him) Is this what the rest of your life
is going to be like?!
calm down. Bart looks around.
I've got nowhere else to go
BART: No! (Shaking his head) No deal!
cannot believe it. Frustrated, he takes off his hat.
BART: (Puts up a figure to silence him, gritting his
teeth) Find yourself another turncoat, Jack! It ain't

(Cont.) Come on! COME ON!
continues to try and convince him, while following him.
is about to say something else, but Tony calls out to him. Bart continues
to hold the gun on him.
JACK! You don't look very well! Are you feeling, all right?
JACK: Go exsanuinguate yourself!
walks off in frustration and disgust. Tony laughs. Tony then addresses
everyone. There are tons of secrets in the room and he knows them all.
He tells him that Colin was not the only corpse he brought back from
the dead. Jack, Roman, John and Marlena listen. He says there are others
he resurrected, that even "his father" wanted to be resurrected
too. Abe says, "You can't trust a word he says." Tony assures
them that they can trust these words, "Death is at hand."
Just then Jack, Bo and Patrick call out that the door is opening. The
others rush to the door. Everyone uses all the force to get the door
open. The grunt and groan, straining.
Lift off the hinge.
assures them that they are wasting their strength.
Five: Everyone is talking at once it is hard to know who is saying what,
and what is being said. The men continue to strain trying to get the
hinge off. Someone encourages them to "Come on!" Bart asks
if they should let them go. He tells Bart that it is time for "Plan
B!" He turns around, shocked, "B! As in the Big Boom?"
Tony sets off the explosives. Everyone is concentrating on the door.
Hope is the only one to see what Tony is doing.
