Full detailed profile on Damian Grimaldi Played by Paolo Seganti on As the World Turns Daytime Soap Opera.
Meg sneaks off to the hotel and into Damian's room. She hides under the sheets. Damian comes in and crawls into bed. He's shocked to find Meg there. She taunts him and tells him that he is going to be losing Lily. "I still love you," she claims. "You really are insane," he says. As she leans in to kiss him, she pulls out a needle. He tells her that he can now see he has no future with Lily and he's sure he's always loved only Meg. When she tries to stab him, he fights her off and throws her into the bed, using her scarf to strangle her. She stops breathing. As he tries to wake Meg up, Lily comes to the door.
Damian and Lily are talking about all of the stress in their lives. They arrive at the farm house to drop off a schedule for Holden. Emma won't let them in and informs them that Holden and Molly have left town. Lily starts throwing a tantrum because Holden has run off. Damian starts to worry that Holden is onto him. He gets called back to 'work', leaving Lily to argue with Emma. Lily spouts off about Holden running out on the kids. Annoyed, Emma asks her why she is so concerned about what's happening between Holden and Molly.
When Molly sneaks out, she finds Damian outside. She taunts him, claiming she was just talking to a friend of his. He issues a threat. Molly confronts him with what she knows and he says that she's crazy. Before she can walk away, he grabs her and warns her that the truth will ruin her life. The truth wouldn't just ruin things for him... if Lily found out the truth, she would leave him and go straight back to Holden. "Like it or not, we both have a lot to lose," he points out.
Meg calls Damian and tells him his monkey is out. His money can't keep her in there, she warns him. "When they let me out, you know what happens next," she threatens him. As he blows up at her, Lily walks into his office and asks him who he is talking to. He makes an excuse. Luke and Lily explain that the doctor refused Noah's case. She doesn't think they should go on vacation at a time like this. Damian promises to handle things and sends her off to get ready. Luke explains that Noah has his heart set on this doctor and he doesn't care about money. "Make him an offer he can't refuse," Damian suggests. Luke calls and threatens to have Dr. Oliver's license revoked. When he warns him that he can reveal all of the times he's broken the rules, the doctor agrees to come to Oakdale. Damian's impressed. Luke points out that he just blackmailed someone and he doesn't have anything to blackmail him with. His father insists that the ends justify the means.
When Damian gets home, Sharkey calls to warn him about Holden asking questions. He demands more money and hangs up. Lily walks in and confronts him, asking him why he's trying to get them out of town so fast. "What or who are you hiding from?" she wonders. He plays stupid and she worries about what he's been saying to their son. He thinks that she is being hypocritical. "I take what I want," he says, begging her to just go away with him. She just wants her son to be the man she raised him to be, not the man Damian is turning him into.
At home, Damian shows Lily his plans for a honeymoon safari. She thinks it's too far away. He's sure the kids can survive without them for awhile. She thinks he's wonderful and agrees to talk to Holden. When she leaves, he starts making calls to arrange things. Meg calls on the other line and thanks him for having her incarcerated. She threatens to come and show him how she feels about him when she gets released later. He starts to panic.
Damian shows up at the mental hospital to question the orderly on his payroll. He tells him that Meg is still threatening him. The orderly tips him off that Meg has been hiding meds in her bedding. This makes Damian smile. He walks into Meg's room and begins taunting her. She freaks out when he tells her that he's made sure she will never get out of there. "If you weren't so pathetic, I would be disgusted," he says. When she's about to explode, the doctor walks in and Damian tears away the bedsheets, revealing all of the pills hidden there. Meg begins making excuses and tells the doctor she isn't pulling a scam. Damian declares that she has been lying to them all for weeks. When he tells her to calm down, she attacks him and starts to meltdown.
Lily goes home and gets a call about what happened with Meg and Damian. When he comes in, she asks him why he's been spending time with Meg. She wonders if he would have told her about this himself. Damian says he went because he was concerned about their security and explains things. Lily is appalled. He suggests again that they go away for awhile.
At the mental hospital, Meg tells Damian that she isn't crazy. He continues saying that she is. She vows to kill him as soon as she gets out. "And now that everyone thinks I'm certifiable, thanks to you, I'm going to get away with it," she says. The doctor returns and talks about how happy he is to see therapy working. "Is that what's happening here?" Damian says. Meg thanks him for stopping by and tells him she'll see him soon.
