Days of Our Lives Wednesday, August 9, 2017 Hattie is visiting Bonnie, both are gushing at seeing each other and giddy over the plans to spring Bonnie today. (These two actresses had to be having a really fun time doing these scenes today). Hattie reveals she has Adrienne out like a light, and in the trunk of her car. Lots of laughing as they discuss the plan. Bonnie goes to her kitchen job like always, then ....Hattie whispers the plan, Bonnie giggles, is overjoyed. Brady walks around the room in the Kmansion, having his own private pity party, muttering things Nicole said, when Paul comes in, asking questions. Brady said Vic admitted hiring Xander to come there, Paul gets all excited, but Brady drops the hammer, Xander got spooked, too many people around, went back to Vic with all kinds of demands, Vic pulled the plug. Paul has noticed the glass of whiskey, Brady denies having a drink, but admits contemplating doing so. Now he rambles on about all his troubles and suspicions about Nicole & Eric, Paul thinks he is wrong, Nicole loves him, and he should talk to her about it all. They go back and forth a bit, Brady dumps the drink, Paul smiles, knows he has lots of support & love, goes to meetings, but tells him to call him any time, day or night, doesn't matter. He will be there for him, wants to help. Justin is at the prison talking to Sonny, doesn't think he will be able to get bail for him. Sonny indicates Paul has a lead, they go back and forth until Sonny finally tells it is Uncle Vic, Paul thinks he hired Xander to come kill Deimos, arranged it all. Brady is questioning him. Justin has a minor fit, talks of how Vic let Sonny rot in jail, how Adrienne has worried, he doesn't want anything to further worry her. Sonny catches on, asks if he is still in love with Mom, Justin avoids a couple times, then finally admits he is. Sonny figures then he should do something about it. Paul arrives, tells the bad news, that Xander did not do it. But not to worry, they will find out who did, Paul won't rest til the killer is found. At Joey's apartment, Kayla is pacing, worried look, flashing back to Joey admitting to Tripp that he is the one who killed Ava.Steve arrives with takeout food, sees her upset, Joey is still sleeping, how did it go with Tripp. Steve says he said little, is still trying to absorb it all. Kayla worries Tripp may turn in Joey, but that young man comes downstairs, saying Tripp doesn't have to, because he will do it himself. Kayla gets all worked up, Joey cannot ruin his life, but Joey can't live with this any more. He has gone to therapy, it all gets worse, not better. She reminds him of all that Ava did to our family, that any one of us could have been killed. Joey just feels he took away Tripp's mother, that Tripp never got to know her. He is soft spoken, but insistent. He will not know any peace until he owns up to what he did. Kayla is near tears, Joey has to go to work at the Pub & leaves. She turns to Steve, angrily asking him why he did not say something. Steve is agonized, but says he feels this is Joey's decision to make, that he is being tortured by guilt, has lived with this a long time, trying to deal with it, and that perhaps he can live with himself and find some peace if he does what he wants. Kayla is beside herself, and finally tells him that "if you think it is o.k. for our son to go to jail, then YOUR son, Tripp should go to jail, too". Nicole is with Eric, thanking him for helping her avoid recognition, she would have lost Holly, yada, yada, blah, blah. Glad we are friends again. Eric is too. She worries Holly won't recognize her, Eric offers to take pictures, Maggie can hang one by the crib, so Holly will see her mommy first thing when she wakes up. And he does, probably snaps 50 of them. Hattie meets with some jail guard, telling him not to forget to leave the kitchen gate unlocked. He is leery, last time he helped her, there was a problem, and if another prisoner escapes, they will be after him. Not to worry, all prisoners will be accounted for when they do the check. Now she pulls envelope of money out of her bra, and does her Mata Hari flirtation routine. (sorry, it just made me laugh). And then later, Bonnie & Hattie come into a bedroom, laughing, giggling, high fiving, butt bumping, Bonnie is free at last, this is where she will begin the new life, glad Hattie was able to exchange her clothes with Adrienne's. Brady walks around a bit after Paul leaves, then calls the Horton Center for Nicole. She isn't a work. So he asks to speak to Eric. Not there either. No message, he hangs up. And as Nicole leaves Eric's room after the picture taking, glad he understands about not telling Brady, Eric promises to get the pictures to her as soon as he develops them, and there in the hallway, skulking and eavesdropping again, is Brady. At the women's prison, the guard has a woozy Adrienne in a chair, thinking she has a hangover (in prison??) Adrienne comes to, says where am I? In prison, where you always are, Lockhart. "HUH?", replies a bewildered Adrienne.
