You Disgust Me.Monday, September 22 2008
Nicole fesses up to Victor, Trent's life is threatened and Chelsea walks in on Nick hugging Melanie.
Nicole flashes back to admitting the truth to Bo and Hope about her marriage to Trent. As she mumbles that if Victor finds out she's married to Trent, she'll have to give the money back, Victor finds her outside the pub and asks her what she's going on about. "Victor, we have to talk," she tells him.
Lexi arrives at the DiMera mansion, fit to maim! She yells at Stefano. "How could you do this to me?" She tells him that the board threatened to fire her because of him and the lock down. He points out that since they didn't fire her, all is well that ends well. She calms some and tells him that she resigned. He's sorry to hear it but not sorry to hear that Abe resigned, when she tells him. Lexi says Abe is tired of the law being manipulated so that Stefano can be free to terrorize the city. "Then he shouldn't have quit," Stefano retorts. Lexi assures him that Abe will now go after Stefano with everything he's got! Stefano asks if she supports this vigilantism, but Lexi calls it justice. "You've gone unpunished far too long." Stefano isn't surprised. She and her two brothers showed their disloyalty to him when they sent him to that facility. Lexi says that he has a point. She admits truthfully, that after all Stefano has done to them, none of them wanted to try that hard! Stefano is aghast. Lexi says she did what she could, but Stefano wouldn't have turned his back on her or any of his children the way she did. Lexi finds that a joke. "I can count the times you sent each one of us to the wolves!" Stefano claims to have built the empire for his children but Lexi yells that he built it for himself. He manipulated her, and everyone else. "I'm done. You're dead to me," she says. She calls him horrible and dangerous and doesn't want him in her life. She doesn’t want him near Theo, but Stefano doesn't want to be kept from him. He asks after Theo. He knows he has Autism and wants to offer the best treatment that money can buy. He knows an expert in Germany, who can come to Salem and exclusively care for Theo. Lexi is sickened that he'd use his own grandson's issues to further his agenda. "You disgust me."
At the pub, Bo, Kayla, Hope and Steve blast Max for attacking Trent. They ask him to apologize, or he may end up in jail. Max refuses. He doesn't feel sorry for what he did. Melanie yells again that she'd kill Trent with her bare hands, if she could. Trent denies pimping her out. She retorts that if Max's friend didn't come when he did, Claude would have raped her. Bo, Max and Steve go to Melanie and claim not to have seen the attack. A disgusted Caroline kicks out Trent. She cannot believe that he didn't protect his daughter instead of using her to pay off a gambling debt. Melanie starts to cry and runs out of the pub, with Nick following. Caroline continues her rant. It makes her sick that he's Max's father. Steve tells Trent to leave, but Trent tells the family that Melanie is a pathological liar. Max rants that Trent is a sick SOB. Trent yells that nobody runs his name through the mud, and leaves. Nicole and Victor arrive and overhear the conversation.
Bo tells Caroline to stay away from Trent, and Hope tries to relax Caroline, while Bo goes to Victor. Bo explains the incident with Max and asks if it's true that Trent is Max's father and he tried to prostitute his daughter? Bo says that unfortunately it's true, but he's there to talk about Nicole, not Max. Nicole takes Victor outside and Bo goes to Hope and lets her know that Nicole wants to tell Victor on her own.
Outside the pub, Nick comforts Melanie, who says that her father never loved her. Chelsea watches from nearby, as Nick holds Melanie close. Trent comes by, just as Melanie admits she has nothing now. Nick tells her she has friends, and Trent says, "And family…" He wants to talk to her, privately. She agrees. Against his better judgment, Nick allows it and Trent apologizes for what Claude did to her. She tells him that Claude's in jail for attempted rape and his friend is in jail for attempted murder. She's sure Claude blames Trent! Trent goes on about the debt. He knows he's in trouble. Melanie is shocked that he only cares about the money, but Trent reminds her that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Melanie's nothing like him, she claims.
Outside the pub, nearby, Nicole tells Victor her past has finally caught up with her. "It usually does," he says. Nicole tells him that Victor was her third husband. She was married to Trent Robbins. He's not surprised, he admits and she tells him they're still legally married. Victor is quiet for a time and Nicole asks if he wants to know the story. He isn't interested, but she plows on anyway. She tells him that she used the name 'Misty Circle', which causes Victor to smirk. She explains that it was her porn name that her father forced her to take, and talks about her abuse at the hands of Trent. Victor listens, as she explains she left him and changed her name to her mother's maiden name, Walker. Victor starts to laugh. He finds her entertaining and her sad story won't let her keep his money. Nicole earned it, she says. He tells her to brace herself. She's going to be dirt poor again. Nicole's stomach lurches and she runs off to become physically sick.
Max interrupts Trent and Melanie's talk and Trent leaves, while they go back into the pub. Nicole goes to Victor's table. He asks if she's feeling better. "Like you care," she says. Victor wants his money back, even the money she spent! Nicole tells him that's not going to happen. Victor gets up to leave and tells her she'll be hearing from his lawyer. "Trent, you are so going to pay for this," she mutters, angrily.
Back inside the pub, Steve, Kayla and Stephanie discuss Trent. Steve wishes he'd have gone to Paris and asks why Stephanie didn't call him. Stephanie explains there was no time. She's worried about Max. Talk gets back to Melanie and Stephanie admits that she thinks Melanie is going to be trouble.
A miffed Chelsea enters the pub and Stephanie goes to her and asks what's wrong. Chelsea says, "Melanie's out there crying on Nick's shoulder. Could it be any more obvious?" Stephanie explains what just went down and Chelsea apologizes, but calls Melanie's tears pathetic. "You know you can admit that you're jealous," says Stephanie. Chelsea says she simply doesn't want to see Nick get hurt. She cares about Nick. They're friends and she doesn't think Melanie is right for him. Stephanie thinks she ought to let this go, unless she wants to get back together with him. Chelsea goes to Nick and asks if he's alright. "I will be, once I get Trent away from Melanie," he says, and leaves. Nearby, Bo asks both Max and Caroline to stay away from Trent, but Max can't make that promise. "I don't make promises I can't keep," he says.
Victor goes to Hope and Bo and is happy that Nicole came clean. He thinks it's nice to have some good news for a change and admits Kate was in the hospital. Chelsea is worried, but Victor explains that she has a cough. Chelsea wants to see her, and will head to the hospital tomorrow. Victor tells Bo that he won't press fraud charges against Nicole, but he will force her to pay back all of his money. He blames Trent for all of this. He's pleased that he got what's his but it doesn't forgive what Trent did to Nicole. Chelsea takes a seat and explains to Bo and Hope all about what happened in Paris and how he pimped Melanie out and how Nick got shot. Bo goes to make a call while Hope comforts Chelsea. She says it was awful when she saw Nick all bloodied. All she could think about was how she could lose him. Hope realizes Chelsea still cares about him. Chelsea shrugs. "We're friends." Hope asks, "You still love him, don't you?"
Nearby, Max introduces Melanie to Caroline. Nick explains the pub is a local landmark and Melanie says it has a lot of character. Caroline wants her to feel at home and calls her family. Melanie's thankful. Max asks Caroline to look after her and leaves to the kitchen. Stephanie watches and follows him there, but returns to her table, shortly thereafter and tells her parents he's gone. Meanwhile, Caroline brings Melanie up to her room to get settled.
Outside the pub, Victor calls his henchman. "Nico, there's something I want you to do! It concerns Trent Robbins!"
Nearby, Trent talks with someone on his cell phone as Nick watches, nearby. Nicole comes out of the pub and tells Trent he owes her. Trent snidely tells her that this is not her problem. She says it will be.
