Certain He Has Been Working for Tony.
date April 29, 2005]
One: The scene is a somewhat repeat of the previous episode [the dialogue
is slightly different].
GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY WIFE!
Patrick continues to have his hand on her shoulder. As Jennifer is
about to explain about Bo and Billie. A furious Jack runs up to him,
and angrily grabs Patrick's collar.
HOPE: OH, JAACCKK!
does not listen and slugs him, knocking him over a row of chairs.
Jack, wait! WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU DOING?
jumps over the and starts attacking him.
HOPE: Patrick? Jack!
JENNIFER: What are you doing?
continues to attack him, as he pathetically tries to defend himself.
Jennifer and Hope run over to him to try and stop him; they watch
shocked at Jack's violence.
PATRICK LOCKHART, COME ON! DEAL WITH ME! DEAL
guard runs over and tries to pry Jack off Patrick. He finally does,
but Jack continues to rant.
(Cont.) DEAL WITH ME, LET'S FINISH THIS NOW!
[Hard to hear] ALL RIGHT! ALL RIGHT!
tries to hold Patrick back.
ON! LET'S DEAL WITH IT, NOW!
guard puts his arm around Jack's throat to stop him. Jennifer runs
up to Jack.
JACK, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? WHAT IS WRONG WITH
JACK: What is wrong with you? Letting
that snake back in your life?
is staring at Jack, she's panting, and confused by his behavior.
Two: The scene continues. Jack is still struggling.
COME ON! LET GO OF ME!
GUARD: [First part is hard to under stand, I am guessing]
Not in the eyes of the law, [this I can hear] you're outta here, Buddy.
guard is choking Jack, as Jack continues to struggle to break free.
flashes her badge.
it's okay! I'm Detect Hope Brady, STOP!
guard eases his hold on Jack. Jack is panting.
(Cont.) I can take it from here, thank you.
GUARD: Are you sure?
HOPE: As long as he promises to behave himself.
JACK: (Still panting) All right! All right, whatever
continues to pant. The guard lets Jack go, and leaves.
Good luck Detective.
security guard leaves. Jack straights out his jacket, and sniffs.
Jack, what are tr.... you doing? Wh.... what if (pointing) Abby heard
JACK: (Angrily) Abigail's asleep, but not before
telling me how (motioning to him with his head) Lockhart played you
the entire time I was gone! Coming on to you! Trying
to make you trust him!
JENNIFER: Well, wait, I do trust
(Hurt and furious that she trusts Patrick) WHY?!
JENNIFER: (Cont.) ....but not in the way you think!
HOPE: I trust him as well! If it wasn't for Patrick
none of us would have gotten off di Mera's island!
PATRICK: (Angrily) Tony almost killed me for betraying
JACK: THAT'S AN ACT! HE NEVER MEANT
TO KILL YOU! YOU'RE STILL ONE OF HIS MOST
What are you talking about?
JACK: News flash, Hope! Tony never
died on that island--
HOPE: No, no, of course he did!
HOPE: John Black killed him!
JACK: (Gesturing) He's still alive.... he survived,
HE'S THE ONE WHO KEPT ME HOSTAGE ALL THESE MONTHS!
AND YOUR.... (pointing) YOUR FINE UPSTANDING BOY IS STILL WORKING
PATRICK: IT'S A LIE!
tries to say something but Jack is shouting too loudly.
[Hard to hear] THAT'S OKAY, JACK!
JACK: NOT ONLY WAS HE WORKING FOR HIM, YOU
(gesturing) SET ME UP!
upset, tries to figure out what Jack is talking about.
Set you up for what?
is still enraged. He looks down towards Jennifer.
Three: It is some time later, Jack has told them what happened to
him when he escaped the first time -- obviously he did not mention
he had sex with Madison.
Wait a minute, y-you.... you escaped the Castle and made it back to
Salem doing laundry on a freighter,
JACK: But the Jennifer who greeted me was false
(makes a sweeping motion with his hand)! Was an imposter!
A di Mera operative who (gesture) kept me from anyone
and everyone in Salem until Tony and Bart could get
back, (motioning for emphasis) recapture me and take
me back to the Castle!
JENNIFER: (Having a realization) That's why you grabbed
my face in Abby's room--
(Still talking frantically) To make sure it wasn't
a mask! To make (grabbing her) sure you were really real!
JENNIFER: (Realizing the horrors Jack went through)
Oh, this is horrible, you came back to Salem thinking
(gesturing and upset for what he suffered) tha.... that you were home
and were safe, and it was all a lie!
JACK: Ha.... A lie, LOCKHART HELPED
PATRICK: OH, YOU ARE WRONG, JACK!
JACK: (Desperate) No, I am right!
I am absolutely right!
walks towards Patrick. Hope stops him. Throughout Jack's accusations
Jennifer watches on in silence, not sure what to think.
Wait, do you have proof Pa-patrick was involved?
JACK: (Frustrated, sighs) Huu, nothing tangible.
(Gesturing) No! I tried! I tried
to get Tony and Bart to admit it! To confirm the
whole thing! THEY HINTED! THEY HINTED ALL AROUND IT BUT THEY NEVER
QUITE CONFIRM IT! NEVER--
PATRICK: Because it's not true!
JACK: IT HAS TO BE TRUE! Tony needed
someone here in Salem to pull of this charade, and you
fit the bill perfectly! (Pointing) That's why he
let you double-cross him on the island, that's why
he let you come back with us, (pointing downward)
because he needed you planted here--
PATRICK: You spent way too much time alone in that
JACK: No, no, (pointing) you are part of
Tony's plan! You are! (Walking towards him) Admit
it! Admit it, you know what he was up to here! He's NOT
UP TO IT ANYMORE, BECAUSE HE'S DEAD, THANK GOD!
is standing right in front of Lockhart, staring him down.
Are you positive?
JACK: (Turning to her) As positive as I
can be without his body (motioning for emphasis) being right in front
of me.(Gesturing) Nobody could have survived that
explosion, (indicating with his gestures) not Tony!
Not Bart! Not haa--
HOPE: (Interrupting) Not who--
JENNIFER: Wait, now Jack, y-y.... you said that (gesturing)
Roman, and Marlena, and Cassie....
HOPE: (Interrupting) Wa.... wai..... wai....
JENNIFER: (Cont.) .... they were there with you--
HOPE: (Continues to trying to silence Jennifer, and
ask Jack a question) ....Wait!
HOPE: (Cont.) Roman, and Marlena, and Cassie are
JACK: (His fingers on his forehead) Yes! Yes, safely
back in Salem.
HOPE: Do Kate and John know?
JACK: (Removing his hand) I-I.... I suppose they
do. (Gesturing) Roman and Marlena were determined to get to them as
soon as possible!
looks upset, he does not want to break the possible bad news about
Victor and Caroline. Jennifer is looking at Jack, knowing what he
What about Victor and Caroline?
JACK: (Exhaling, his voice is emotional) We believe
the may have been in the castle, yes.
HOPE: (Concerned) Did they make it?
JACK: (His voice cracking) No, I don't think so.
No, I'm sorry.
HOPE: Oh my God, Bo's parents survived the island,
being swept off the rafts, only to die in an explosion?
JACK: All thanks to Lockhart!
turns towards Patrick.
(Angrily) I had nothing TO do with any of this!
JACK: I don't BELIEVE YOU!
HOPE: Well, you know what, I DO!
I believe him!
turns to Hope not believing she could trust Lockhart. Jack flashes
her a nasty glare. Jennifer looks at Hope, her expression is hard
(Cont.) Patrick saved our lives. Find some hard evidence
that was still working for Tony and I'll change my mind!
(Furious and sighn in frustration) Ahhh.....
HOPE: (Cont.) But until then, I'm giving Patrick
the benefit of the doubt!
cannot believe Hope. He is frustrated.
Hope! You're making a big mistake--
interrupts Jack. She tells him she cannot continue to talk about
this, she needs to find Bo first and tell him about his parents,
"He's going to be devastated. It's going to be like losing
them all over again!" Hope begs for Jennifer to tell her where
Bo and Billie went, and why did they go.
Four: A little later, it appears that Jennifer has told Hope about
Bo and Billie. Hope cannot believe that Bo and Billie were so naive
about the sweater, she says even "a first year cadet would
it's a trap!" Jennifer tells her that the blood did match.
She is not surprised, for it is just another "wild goose chase!"
Patrick interrupts, agreeing. He brings up the last time, he cannot
believe that Billie talked Bo into going [seems like he is purposefully
making Bo look bad]. Hope goes on and on about Bo always having
to be heroic, and "Billie knows how to play him like a fiddle."
At that point Jack interrupts.
Whao.... whao.... whao.... wa... wait a minute, I know I just got
here, but it just seems to me tha.... that Billie's just desperately
trying to find her daughter! I mean, As mothers you
must under stand that. And if Georgia is Bo's daughter
too he's just trying to find her ah... I-I would
do the same thing.
JENNIFER: Jack, we know how you feel, about Billie,
but now is not the time to be defending her!
HOPE: And don't try to justify Bo
breaking his promise, either!
JACK: No, I'm just saying, Hope--
JENNIFER: (Pleading) Jack, I mean
is hurt that Jennifer is siding against him.
(Furious) Don't Jack!
gets all annoyed, and goes on to state that she cannot see what
there is about Billie which makes all the men defend her.
Five: Hope grills Jennifer about where Bo and Billie could have
gone. Jennifer says she saw no address in the package in which the
sweater came. Hope knows Tony is dead [funny how after all the faked
deaths everyone so easily believes].
If that's the case then Lockhart should know where Bo and Billie are
is annoyed, her rubs his forehead, and points at Jack.
How many times do I have to tell you,
(nastily) Jack, that I don't work
for the di Meras anymore! I don't know where Bo and
turns to him not believing a word he says.
I don't believe you!
insists they stop arguing, she has to find Bo to tell him about
his parents. She needs to tell him before he hears it from someone
else. She damns him for taking off with Billie, *yet again*. She
also damns Billie. Hope knows that Billie will not be happy until
they both wind up dead. Hope swears that she will make "that
manipulative, selfish witch pays" if something happens to Bo.
Of course, as she speaks, Bo falls into the pit, as he tries to
rescue Billie who fell into the trap during the previous episode.
Bo is unconscious and looks seriously injured.
