Forty-Six: Jack Faints and
Shows Symptoms of a Major Health
Problem; It Appears Celeste's Visions
of Sorrow for Jack Are Coming True.
date May 27, 2005]
One: Shawn, Brady, Rex and Lucas have jumped into the war zone to
find Philip who is being held hostage. They do not realize that
it is not the enemy but Tony di Mera who has picked Philip up in
the middle of a war zone. Tony continues to let him and the others
believe the enemy have him. He has set up Sami, in the Stan persona
to go there as well. Eventually Sami loses her Stan disguise and
the five of them are captured by Tony. However, John has been able
to track and locate the group. Also, to his horror, it is discovered
that Tony is alive.
Two: It appears to be the same day as the welcome home party, Jack
and Jennifer are in the same clothes. The party decorations are
down, everything is cleaned-up and they are alone. The two of them
are coming from the kitchen into the living room, each carrying
know, Abby should be home from the hospital....
then someone is at their door ringing the doorbell.
Oh, my goodness, (putting down the cup on the coffee table she quickly
rushes over to answer the door) I wonder who that could be?
JACK: Hmm, I don't know.
looks out the window of the door, and seeing, who it is opens it.
It is Hope.
Jennifer can say anything Hope rushes into the room.
Ahh, Hey, Jen, I'm so sorry to barge in on you....
BO: Hey, Jen....
past too. They are obvious upset about something.
(Cont.) ....like this....
JENNIFER: (Following them into the living room) What--
HOPE: We were at the pier and got a urgent....
JACK: Hope, Bo--
HOPE: (Cont.) .....message John, and your house was
BO: There's a break through in the search for the
JENNIFER: Ohh, (gestures) that's great!
(Seeing the looks on their faces) What?--
BO: But there's some bad news too (makes a face and
rubs his face).
HOPE: I think you should hear this sitting down.
JACK: (Concerned) I don't like the sound of that.
JENNIFER: No, just say it, what?
(Exhales and then just lets it out) Tony di Mera is alive.
JACK: (Frowns) What?!
JENNIFER: (Frowns too) Nooo!
BO: Yeah, he's the one who's holding the boys hostage.
JENNIFER: (Gasping, her mouth agape) Ahhh....
JACK: Can anybody stop this guy?!
BO: Well, John is using the ISA computer to pinpoint
di Mera and the boys.
has his hand over his forehead, Jennifer's mouth is still agape
not believing that their nightmare is not over.
Just then Billie walks in. She wants to know if there is any news.
After finding Billie taking sexually advantage of a gassed Bo, Hope
rips into her. Telling her that she does not belong there, "especially
since it is *your* fault!"
Three: Hope continues to rip into Billie, blaming her for Shawn's
life being in danger, because she dragged Bo off to find Georgia,
instead of being there to stop Shawn from going. Bo drags Hope to
the side. He reminds her that they both talked to Shawn and he promised
them he would not go, but lied. Hope still thinks he should have
been there to stop their son. Bo reminds her that he "is a
grown man." They continue to argue. Jack listens in,
and then looks over at Billy.
Jennifer leads Billie aside, seeing that her being there is causing
problems for Bo and Hope.
Billie, I'm sorry, but I think.... I think you should leave, (frowns)
right now, please.
JACK: (Appears) Whoa.... whoa.... wa-wa... wait a
minute, (he has his arm around her shoulder) Jennifer, she's as worried
as you or anybody else, she's (looks at Billie and frowns at Jennifer)
got three brothers over there!
looks at him.
JACK: I mean, think about it, Je-Je....
does not stay to listen and walks away. Jack stops in mid-speech,
since she has walked off.
(Sighs) Haa.... you're right, Jack, I am, I'm very
is looking towards Jennifer, then turns to Billie.
(Cont.) ....and I'm almost given up any hope of ever
finding Georgia if I lose anyone else I
don't know what I'm going to do--
JACK: (Trying to comfort her) Hey, hey, hey, It's
gonna be all right! (Nods) Trust me!
over to Billie and assures her that both John and Roman are working
on a way to bring them home.
Jennifer looks over at Hope who sighs, concerned for Shawn, and
apparently also a annoyed that Billie is still pushing Bo's buttons.
Four: John setting up to get a computer video feed guys. He plans
on sending it it to Mimi and Belle who are watching at the Loft,
as well as to Jack's computer; at the Penthouse, he, Marlena, Roman
and Kate watch his satellite feed from the ISA computer. They are
able to see heat images of people walking around, the images are
the approximate size and shape of each of the guys and Sami, as
well as their guards. Somehow John notices one's approximate size
makes it seem she is a female, and that she fits Sami's height and
build. He calls Bo on his cell phone, still at Jack and Jennifer's,
to tell him about it and to tell him that they think Sami is somehow
there with the guys. Jennifer and Hope listen in worriedly. Bo reacts
to hearing about Sami, and Hope wonders what is wrong. He tells
her that they believe the guys are fine, and that Sami is with them.
Jack is seated and Billie is behind them. Bo relates to the others
what Roman told him.
The thing is that Sami is there, too?
is shocked, Jack jumps up. Hope and Billie put put their hands to
HOPE: What's she doing there?
talking back on the cell, asks Roman how is that possible. He tells
his brother he does not know, and there not even certain she is
there. Roman tells Bo that they all can check the images, since
John is sending the link and feed over to Jack's computer.
(Talking to Jack) John's sending you a link.
looks over at his laptop and Billie leans over. Jack then notices
something, and gestures to Bo.
Oh, good, te-te.... tell him I just got it.
punches some keys on his computer, and looks at the screen. Jennifer
and Billie lean over him to look too. Bo hangs up and moves over
to the screen to look too, as Hope leans over on the other side
of Jack. Jack frowns, trying to get better reception.
Ah, the.... the picture comes and goes.
JENNIFER: I know, it's incredible that we can see
BO: Well, this time it's live.
BILLIE: I can't believe it, Sami!
JACK: Well, (frowns) it certainly looks like a woman.
continue to hover around Jack. Though we cannot see the screen.
Can you tell which one is Shawn?
BO: No, but they are all alive.
and Jennifer look over at Bo and Hope.
Well, let's keep it that way!
JACK: I don't know, when it comes to Tony di Mera,
you never know what he is going to do next.
looks at Jack. Bo and Hope lean closer to the screen.
You got that right.
Five: At Jack and Jennifer's, the five of them are still huddled
around Jack's laptop. Jack is typing, apparently they have lost
the feed, making everyone nervous and worried. Bo tells them that
there is nothing to worry about, Roman told him that the feed would
come and go.
(Frustrated) I, ah, need some.... (looking over at Bo) coffee (gets
sighs, and brushes her bangs from her forehead.
Ah, Let's get everyone some coffee.
walks off with Jack.
Billie comments that if Sami is there "that could only mean
trouble for all of them." Hope tells her "not to make
things worse than they already are." Billie makes a sarcastic
remark. Bo stands there saying nothing.
Jack and Jennifer have stopped and are watching the exchange.
Listen, Jack, it's so tense here right now, can you please just....
just get Billie away from Hope, right now.
JACK: I'l... I'll....
JENNIFER: (Cont.) Do something?
JACK: Yeah, I'll do.... I'l.... I'll handle it (walks
over to Billie). (Talking to Billie) Look, ah, (points to the computer)
while the feed is down why don't we go out (points outside, putting
his hand on her shoulder) and get some fresh air (Jack nervously looks
at Hope, and she at him)?
BILLIE: (Giving Hope a nasty look) Yeah (walks out
Jack closes the door and follows Billie.
JACK: (Trying to feign ignorance) Hmm, what? Huh
(turns to Billie)?
BILLIE: Jennifer wanted me out of there?
JACK: Oh , well, come on, you know (pointing towards
the house) Jennifer, she's protective of her cousin.
BILLIE: (With a snide tone) Yeah, fine, whatever,
actually, I'm more concerned about you right now. (Looking at him)
Are you okay?
JACK: I'm (makes a waving motion with his hand) fine!
(Gestures) But I brought you out here 'cause I'm worried about you.
Look, you came over here, you're worried about your brothers, that's
all right. But there is another reason (knowing grin), isn't there?
BILLIE: (Pretending not to know what he is talking
about, rolls her) What do you mean?
JACK: I mean, tell me the truth, you followed Bo
over her, didn't you?!
two are standing behind the Deveraux' wooden bench which is in the
front yard. Billie says nothing, but turns and looks towards the
house, avoiding the truth.
Back inside, Jennifer tries to ease the situation too. She suggests
that considering how tense everyone is, it may be better if she
made tea instead of coffee. Hope wonders about biscuits too, and
Jennifer says she get some of those too.
Jennifer goes into the kitchen. Bo assures Hope that all that can
be done is being done for the guys. Hope continues to argue with
Bo say that Shawn would not have been there had he stayed home instead
of going with Billie. He insists Shawn will be all right. However,
she says anything could happen. She tells him that if something
happens to Shawn, she would never forgive him.
Six: Back outside, Billie and Jack are continue their conversation.
Oh (throws up her arm in frustration), so, you're on my case too (slapping
her free hand on the back of the bench and walks around).
JACK: (Holding on to the back of the bench) Billie,
I just noticed that--
BILLIE: (Annoyed) I did not come
here because of Bo! Because (dramatically putting
her hand to her chest) I am worried about my brothers,
(angrily) so that so hard to believe, Jack?!
JACK: (Not completely convinced that is the only
reason) Of course not, I just don't (smiles) want to see you get hurt,
BILLIE: (Mock laugh) Ha hah, too late! Again!
(Motions with her head and starts to walk off) Look, I'm just gonna
get out of here, Hope doesn't want me around.
JACK: No, no, no, (putting out his hand to motion
for her to stop) you don't have to go.
JACK: Really, eh--
BILLIE: She doesn't want me around,
Jack! And frankly, for a good reason!
then flashback to her and Bo having sex in the pit, after they were
trapped and were gassed. Bo calls out thinking he is making love
to Hope, and Billie does nothing to stop him.
Jack can see that something is bothering her. Her memory ends, and
she comes back to the present.
do you want to talk about it?
starts to walk off again. Again Jack tries to stop her, worried
about his friend.
(Cont) Billie?! I just--
then Jack stumbles, and has to catch on to Billie for support.
BILLLIE: Oh, uh, Jack (Jack's weight nearly knocks
her over).... Jack want's wrong (concerned).
trouble gaining his equilibrium, finally he does, and puts his hand
to his forehead. Jack seems worried. Billie looks at him, equally
Back inside Jennifer has brought the tea. Bo puts his arm around his
wife, trying to reassure her that their son will be fine.
Seven: Back outside, Jack is still very shaky. Billie tries to help
Okay, wait, whoa, whoa, whoa, just (tries to lead him to the bench
but is having a hard time since he is still very woozy) have a seat
right here on this bench.
JACK: (Sitting down hard, and putting his arm out
in protest, his voice weak) I'm fine!
BILLIE: Sit down! (Concerned because he is looking
very badly) No, you're not fine! You're not fine
I could tell--
JACK: (Weak, but trying to pretend he is fine) I
just lost my balance.
BILLIE: (Cont) .... you're not well!
It's more than that! What's wrong (sitting next to him)?!
JACK: (Still looking weak, and his voice sounds weak)
It's okay, it's just.... (his head weaves, he mumbles something [sounds
like] trouble with me when you ca....
As he mumbles his head weaves, and he faints, his head falling onto
All right, Jack! (Looks down at him, fear in her voice) Jack!
is not coming to, and she puts her hand behind his neck to prop
up his head. She does not know what to do.
Eight: Meanwhile, John has gotten the feed back, Roman, Kate, Marlena
and he are watching what is going on; as are others around Salem,
including Bo, Hope and Jennifer. They see the heat images of four
other figures coming upon the guys, and they appear armed. Just
then to everyone's horror the feed goes out again.
Nine: In the bunker, it turns out that the soldiers are neither
the enemy nor Tony's men, but US military. They knew that they would
escape and put a tracking device on them. They have been following
them every since. Tony is with them, and the commander tells them
that thanks to them they found PFC Kiriakis and helped them capture
Tony. He tells him that John Black has been monitoring everything
via the ISA's spy satellite.

One: The scene replays Jack feeling woozy from the previous episode
[though it is somewhat different].
Billie is trying to help Jack to the bench, he is having a hard
Ah.... (groan) Ohh.... Here.... Here, sit down.Come on.
coughs, and is smiling trying to pretend everything is fine. He
straightens his jacket.
I can tell you are not well (walks around the back of the bench to
the other side).What's going on?
JACK: Uh.... (mumbles, his voice is weak) I-I....
I'm fine, I just.... lost my balance.
is stilling next to him now.
it's more than that....
JACK: (Exhales, obviously something is very wrong)
BILLIE: (Cont.) ....What is it, what's wrong?
JACK: (Weaves, his speech is weaker) It's just....
it's a little equilibrium--
that, Jack faints, and his head falls onto her shoulder. She becomes
(Lightly shakes him) Jack!
Jack does not respond.
Two: The Deveraux front porch, Jack is still unconscious, and Billie
frantically tries to revive him.
Jack! (patting the back of his head to revive him) Jack! Come on.
(She checks his neck for a pulse, the push him) Jaacck!
JACK: (Jack slowly comes to; he rolls his head) Whooaa!
(Turns towards Billie) That was weird!
BILLIE (Her mouth agape) Are you okay?
JACK: (Still out of it) Haa... (blinks a couple of
times, shakes his head to revive himself) I'm fine. I'm.... I'm just
BILLIE: (He hand on him, even more concerned) I
don't know, man, maybe we should take you to the hospital to get you
JACK: Nooo! No, no, no, no I-I.... (Still sounding
a little weak) I'm.... I'm fine, really. I'm fine.
BILLIE: You know, you don't look

(Cont.) No, you know, there's could be seriously something wrong with
JACK: (On hand on her shoulder, the other he motions
with) No, no! The only thing that's wrong
with me, is that I'm seriously (gesturing) exhausted
after.... after being held being held by Tony di Mera, myself. (Swallows
hard) You know, damnit if he's not doing it all over again! Haa....
BILLIE: (Nods her head) It must have been horrible.
Oohh! Course it was (frowns)! But, right now, let's worry about getting
your brothers home, and.... and Sami, I mean, th....
what the hell (half-laugh trying to change the subject
about his illness) is that all about?! Look, I.... I-I... I'm fine!
I'm just, uh, eh, just, uh (still obviously not feeling well and trying
to hide it, gesture) a, lil.... a lil.... little tired. (Still having
problems) Bu.... But, otherwise, I'm fine. (Half-hearted smile) Haa....
BILLIE: (Not convinced) Okay! All right, but maybe
I should (points over to the house) just tell Jennifer, just
to get up, but Jack puts his hand on her shoulder stopping her.
No! No! No, don't, (still sounding and looks very weak, frowns)
worry Jennifer. I.... I.... I just going to rest her for a minute,
and then.... we'll just go inside ( trying pretend all is right).
(More to himself than Billie) Yeah (looking away) !
not seem so sure.
Back inside, Bo has just talked to Roman. He tells Jennifer
and Hope that Roman told him that the boys are being flown back
to Salem immediately. They are all thrilled by the news. Though
Hope says she does not know what she would have done had anything
happened to Shawn. Bo tells her not to "go there." Shawn
is fine and soon will be home with them. Bo tells her, as they hug,
that their family "finally is going to be together again, and
things are going to be different." Jennifer remembers Jack
and Billie and rushes outside to tell them.
Jack and Billie are still on the bench. Jack tries to get up again.
All right, I'm going in! (He gets up, groans) Ahhh....
to help him. However, he falters and Billie has to hold him up. Just
then Jennifer rushes out.
(Excitedly ) GUESS WHAT?! (She notices Billie holding Jack up and
Jack looking weak) Jack, what's wrong?
Jack is panting,
and does not know what to say.
Three: Back outside, Jennifer is worried seeing Jack the way he
what is it, are you okay (reaching her hand towards him)?
JACK: I'm fine. I'm fine. (Motions towards Billie) Billie is
upset. She's.... she's....
looking at Jack as he tries to lie out of the situation.
(Cont, gestures.) I'm trying to reassure her that brothers' going
to be home and everything's going to be all right. Haa....
JENNIFER: (A worried expression on her face) Are you sure that's
all it is?
a little nod to Billie, he keeps his hand on her shoulder. Billie
then turns towards Jennifer and plays along.
(Does not sound that convincing) I got emotion....
his other hand on her other shoulder, trying to act like he is the
one comforting her.
(Cont.) I got a little emotional. I-I.... Is there any news?
JENNIFER: (Smiling, gestures) Well, yes! Tha.... that's why
I was running out here. There's great news! The Marines pulled
off the rescue, (throws out her arms excitedly) everybody's is
BILLIE: (Shrieking for joy) Aaahhhhh!
BILLLIE: Everybody's gone! Thank God!
throws her arms around Billie and Jack, and the three hug each other
[hard to hear] Thankful, everybody's safe. That's wonderful!
Billie: Oohh, Yeesss!
JACK: That's great.
Okay, what about Tony?
JENNIFER: Well, supposedly they have Tony in custody,
right now (laughs happily).
JACK: (His voice still sounds weak) If they can hold on to
that slippery (Jack looks at Billie and smiles) bastard maybe he's
finally going to get what's coming to him.
excited. She thinks now with Tony captured they can force
him to tell her and Bo where there daughter is.
Inside, Bo and Hope are hugging and he promises her that Billie
will no longer be a problem for them. With Shawn returning, Bo promises
to pick up the pieces and they will all be a family again.
Four: A short while later, Jack and Jennifer, and Billie have joined
Hope and Bo inside. Jack has his arms around Jennifer, and Bo has
his arms around Hope. Billie is watching. They are all happy, smiling
and laughing over the good news.
say, all this good news calls for a little celebration!
down lovingly at Jennifer. She has her hand on his chest and looks
up at him with great love. They all talk at once.
What do you say I dig out a little champagne?
JENNIFER: Yeah, I think that would be great!
at Jennifer and then walks to the kitchen. Hope tells them that
now she knows her son is safe she " *so* ready for things to
get back to normal."
Billie says they will make Tony tell them where their daughter is.
Hope is not happy hearing this.
Meanwhile, in the dining room, Jack walks into the room from the
kitchen, carrying a bucket, with a bottle of champagne.
(Sighs) Haa.... (Puts the bucket with the champagne on the table)
As Jack tries
to pick up the bottle and pop the cork his left hand starts shaking
Haa.... Ha.... Damnit! What's wrong with me?!
Five: Back in the living room, Bo is telling Billie not to get her
hopes up. Hope and Jennifer walk over towards the fireplace. Bo
continues to talk to Billie, he tells her it will not be easy to
get the truth from Tony. However, he promises, "one way or
the other" they will get the truth.
Hope tells Jennifer "I can't begrudge Bo and Billie wanting
to find their daughter." She tells Jennifer that she has her
son back and wants everyone to have a happy ending.
I know, me too! (She interlaces her hands as if a prayer) And you
know, (gestures) despite everything that has happened, I just
know that from here on out, (smiles) everything is going to
be just fine.
Six: In the dining room, Jack is lying on the floor, unconscious,
with a large bruise on and bleeding from his forehead.
