One last round with the team twist and a big chance at safety with lasting effects for the WC winner this time.
    After two weeks of declined Wildcard safety watch for Big Brother to step up their game and offer something so good it won’t be denied this time around. After that, it’s off to the chopping block.
    Christian has a plan for his nominations and we’ll see him roll that out tonight but not everyone is on board with the same target. Watch for a little dissension in the ranks as the HGs debate which nom should be the real target for the week.
  • CBS LOVE ISLAND – Sunday, August 1 Show More
    Episode 319 – Airing 8/1/21 (9:01PM) – From screenrant.com: Season 3 episode 19 will show which boys and girls were saved by the public vote, all while three new islanders are introduced to the villa. Cashay Proudfoot is more confident about Charlie Lynch, and her feelings for Cinco keep dwindling down as she sees Trina Njoroge go through another heartbreak. If we’re being honest here, there is a high likelihood that Cinco will be sent home if episode 19 includes an elimination. Also at risk is Jeremy Hershberg, who barely survived the last dumping.
    Shannon St Claire & Josh Goldstein should get enough votes to survive this next Love Island USA elimination just fine, but the jury is still out on Kyra Lizama & Will Moncada’s fate on the show. It’ll also be interesting to see how fans feel about this new relationship between Olivia Kaiser & Korey Gandy. Meanwhile, Casa girls Leslie Golden and Genevieve Shawcross are very at risk of a sudden dumping. Alas, three new replacements are coming in: Alana Paolucci, Bailey Marshall, and Elly Steffen.
  • CBS LOVE ISLAND – Tuesday, August 3 Show More
    Episode 320 – Airing 8/3/21 (9:00PM) – From screenrant.com: Season 3 episode 20 will show the aftermath of the fight between Shannon St Claire and Will Moncada, and it’ll introduce new girls Alana Paolucci, Bailey Marshall, and Elly Steffen to the villa. Last time on the show, Korey Gandy, Jeremy Hershberg, Charlie Lynch, and Will got texts announcing that they’re going on dates with the new arrivals. It’s a given that Jeremy, who is single, will go all-in on the new girls. But it’ll be interesting to see what Korey (partnered with Olivia Kaiser) and Charlie (partnered with Cashay Proudfoot) will do. The fans will also pay close attention to how Kyra Lizama and Will Moncada will act with their Love Island USA co-stars following the latest elimination round where they came very close to being eliminated. Will has been a close friend to virtually everyone in the villa, and Kyra is feeling particularly hurt by her girl friends. Other than this potential drama, things should still be smooth sailing for Josh Goldstein and Shannon St Claire, as it is clear that the new arrivals won’t even try to pursue Josh at this point in the game. Meanwhile, Trina Njoroge is waiting around to see what’s next.

    It’s the last official week of the Teams and then the group safety is off. Houseguests will have the chance to veer off on their own with new allies or stick it out with the remaining teammates. This round we’ll see another Team get bumped down again leaving the mighty Kings fully intact. Is anyone going to try and come after them? We’re just one more day away from another chance at that.
  • CBS LOVE ISLAND – Wednesday, August 4 Show More
    Episode 321 – Airing 8/4/21 (9:01PM) – From screenrant.com: Season 3 episode 21, Cashay Proudfoot and Charlie Lynch’s relationship is melting away, and two new boys K-Ci Maultsby and Andre Luis Brunelli are coming in to turn up the heat even more. After betting big on Charlie and leaving Cinco behind, Cash is feeling like she risked too much for someone who didn’t go all-in for her. After the blowup between Shannon St Claire and Will Moncada, it was time for Kyra Lizama to speak up. But Shannon didn’t back down, which may damage her friendship with Kyra.
    Elsewhere in the Love Island villa, Korey Gandy is a happy-go-lucky guy getting to know new girl Bailey Marshall and feeling like she’s reciprocating his interest. However, Olivia Kaiser is feeling very upset about this new love triangle, and tensions should rise in the coming days. Speaking of Bailey, Jeremy Hershberg is also extremely interested in her, and it’s possible for her to explore that path in order to avoid dealing with the Korey & Olivia situation. Trina Njoroge, Elly Steffen, and Alana Paolucci are single and ready to mingle, so they’re ready for the two new boys to arrive.

    Airing 8/7/21 (Sa.) (9:00 PM) on the CBS Television Network: “48 HOURS” DOUBLE FEATURE, SATURDAY, AUGUST 7
    9:00 PM, ET/PT – 48 HOURS: “Murder at the Mall” – Correspondent Jamie Yuccas and 48 HOURS report on the death of 18-year-old Michelle Martinko who went out to the local mall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Dec. 19, 1979 and was later found dead in her car, in an encore of “Murder at the Mall: The Michelle Martinko Case” to be broadcast Saturday, Aug. 7 (9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Martinko was stabbed and cut 29 times. Investigators looked at those closest to her as possible suspects, and questioned many of her male friends. The case baffled local police officers for decades, and kept them going through several generations, until they got a break from evidence Martinko left behind. The case came alive in 2005 when blood scrapings from the gearshift of Martinko’s car were sent out for testing. That lab report turned up male DNA – DNA that did not match anyone previously interviewed in the case, or anyone in the nationwide database of criminal offenders. It would take another decade – and a new detective. He turned to Parabon NanoLabs, which uses genetic genealogy to track DNA from one family member to another. Parabon found a distant relative of the killer. Did they have the killer? 48 HOURS takes viewers inside the unrelenting efforts by police to solve the case. Watch a preview.
  • CBS 48 HOURS – Saturday, August 7 Show More
    Airing 8/7/21 (Sa.)

The death of Grover and the legal proceedings against Addimando divided the community in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. The case hinged on the question of whether Addimando murdered Grover or she was, as she argues, acting in self-defense against an abusive partner. The story begins on Sept. 28, 2017, when a police officer spotted a car stopped at a green light. When he sounded his air horn to get the car to move, an agitated Addimando got out and told him something had gone terribly wrong at home. She told police that her partner Grover had abused her for years. She said things reached a boiling point when Grover came home from work that day, after Child Protective Services visited to investigate an anonymous report earlier that morning. At one point that night, she said, they lay down on the couch together and Grover pulled a gun from the cushions. When Addimando asked to leave, by her account, he said he would kill her. Addimando said she got the gun away from Grover and shot him in self-defense. Addimando was convicted of second-degree murder in 2019. An appeals court heard her case in April 2021. 48 HOURS has the latest on the appeal and a decision that continues to split the community.  Watch a preview.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

Amanda went to the hotel to spend time with Phyllis. Phyllis was glad they could get together. She knew Amanda needed to decompress after all the stuff with her family. She thought Amanda looked amazing though and surmised that someone was taking care of her. As they headed to the lounge to chat, Sally appeared to yell at Phyllis about crossing her one time too many. Phyllis said she forgot to tell Sally that she sent Jack and Kyle a video of Sally and her co-conspirator going at it. Sally snapped that for the last time, she and Tara weren’t conspiring. She asked if it was even legal for Phyllis to share that video. Phyllis thought that was the least of Sally’s worries. Sally felt it was bad enough that Phyllis spied on her guests, but then she shared her lies with Jack. Phyllis felt Jack had plenty of reasons to doubt Sally. “How dare you continue to interfere in my relationship with him. I warned you before,” Sally snarled. Phyllis said that was why Jack doubted Sally – he’d seen through her fake charm. She brought up the time Jack overheard Sally vow to take Phyllis down. Sally said she and Jack were moving past that, and Phyllis replied that Jack saw the light. Sally called Phyllis spiteful and vicious. Phyllis said Sally could end this by telling her what she and Tara did to drive Summer out of town. “You tell me now. Right now. Or things will get much much worse for you,” Phyllis warned.

Sally said she had nothing to confess, and she accused Phyllis of manufacturing an issue because she couldn’t stand the fact that Summer was perfectly happy at her glamorous new job far far away from Phyllis. Phyllis hissed that Sally and Tara were way out of their league. She wouldn’t stop until she got the truth. Sally said Phyllis was unbelievable and left.

Amanda noted that Phyllis wasted no time acting on her theory about Sally and Tara colluding. Phyllis said it wasn’t a theory. Amanda asked what proof Phyllis had. Phyllis said she had zero proof, but she had this – she gestured to her brain. She said Jack had a hard time believing her because she didn’t have anything to show him. She said those two little girls knew she was on to them, and they were afraid and they were going make a mistake, and then Phyllis would take them down.

Amanda noted that she wasn’t just Phyllis’s friend, she was one hell of an attorney. So she wanted to hear about this video Sally mentioned. Phyllis told Amanda the whole story. Amanda was alarmed that Phyllis stole Sally’s phone. Phyllis wished she’d had audio in the video, so this thing would be over. Amanda warned that Phyllis was playing with fire. Phyllis asked that Amanda help her out instead of judging. Amanda agreed to help put the pieces of the puzzle together. Phyllis was thrilled. She said she tried to do this with Billy, but they didn’t get anywhere. Amanda said Billy was good at considering all the angles, but she thought she and Phyllis could crack the case. Amanda had the feeling Tara was the key to the mystery, so she thought they should set Sally aside.

Phyllis and Amanda recapped the story so far – Tara and Harrison moved into the Abbott house around the same time Summer got a job offer from the biggest designer in Milan. Out of all the qualified people all over the world, Angelina Marchetti honed in on Summer in Genoa City and offered the job, site unseen. Summer went from saying she was in love with Kyle and couldn’t wait to be a stepmom to moving away. Phyllis said Tara took Summer’s place at the Abbott dining room table, and Sally took Summer’s job. Amanda played devil’s advocate and suggested that Summer leaving was just luck and timing. Phyllis didn’t believe in coincidence – people made their own luck. She said Tara made her own luck when she latched onto Ashland. Amanda added that Tara insinuated herself into the life of another prominent man with a famous last name. Phyllis said Tara was using her kid to get what she wanted. Amanda didn’t think Phyllis knew that for sure. “I have seen that game. I have played that game. A very long time ago,” Phyllis said. Amanda asked if Phyllis could be projecting, and Phyllis said absolutely not.

Amanda said, assuming Phyllis was right, why did Tara need Sally? She felt like they were missing something. She asked when, exactly, Summer got that job offer. Phyllis thought back and remembered that Sally told Summer about the job. Sally claimed she was interested in this job, then Summer got it. Later, Sally claimed she was okay with Summer getting the job because she was happy with the JCV job. Phyllis thought they had to do a deep dive into this. Phyllis decided to call Angelina Marchetti. Amanda thought calling Summer’s boss was a bold move, and it was the middle of the night in Italy, so Angelina might be asleep. Phyllis happened to know that Angelina was in LA promoting her fall line. Phyllis knew Angelina’s PR person, because she used to work with Francesca during her Restless Style days. Phyllis called Francesca and asked how Summer was doing, then she asked for a big favor. Phyllis got Angelina’s number from Francesca and placed the call. Angelina recognized Phyllis’s name – she said Summer was brilliant, and she’d always be grateful to her dear friend Eric for recommending her. Phyllis asked if it was Eric Forrester, and Angelina said yes – she was meeting with him. Nick arrived and overheard Phyllis say she was on her way to LA, as well. He gave her a questioning look.

Tara entered the dimly lit Abbott living room and saw Kyle sitting there. She didn’t know he was home. He said that he came back to find out how things went with Harrison, but when he got home, she was on the phone with Sally. Ignoring the part about Sally, Tara stated that breaking the news of Ashland’s illness to Harrison was so much harder than she thought it’d be. Voice breaking, she said it was one of the hardest moments of this whole ordeal. She was so glad Kyle was home. Tara supposed the talk with Harrison went as well as it could’ve. Kyle asked how Harrison reacted. Tara said it was difficult telling Harrison that this big strong man he’d known as his whole life as his father was sick, but in the end, he accepted it, maybe because he didn’t really understand. Kyle said that now that Ashland was seeking treatment, Harrison might have him around longer than they initially thought. Tara hoped so. She said as long as their son had love and support from all of them, he’d make it through. Kyle asked what the phone call with Sally was about. Tara pretended Sally called to apologize for blowing up at her over the Phyllis thing. Tara acknowledged Kyle’s feelings on Sally, but she said she felt sorry for her, given the way Phyllis had been hounding her over Summer leaving town. Now that Tara had been dragged into it, she know what it was like to be the target of Phyllis’s unfair accusations. She hoped he hadn’t let her misguided suspicions get to him too. He said Phyllis wanted to protect Summer, and she had a long history of jumping to conclusions about people. Tara asked Kyle if he still trusted her.

Kyle asked Tara what she was so worried about. She said he and Jack had been so kind to her when she didn’t have anyone else. She’d hate to think he was questioning whether letting her move in was a mistake. He hoped she knew he had no qualms or regrets about that. He wanted to look after his son, and he felt she and Harrison needed and deserved a stable environment. She said Phyllis had the impression that she was a gold digger. She needed to know if Phyllis had gotten to him and he no longer trusted her. He didn’t doubt her, but he knew for a fact how manipulative Sally could be. “So you think she’s using me. In what way?” Tara asked. Kyle didn’t know what Sally was up to, and he didn’t think it was worth getting worked up about, especially today when Tara had dealt with a lot. Kyle asked Tara how she saw things going forward, noting that Ashland might have more time than they thought. Tara was adamant that the marriage was over. Kyle said Tara and Harrison could stay here as long as they wanted, and they’d continue to co-parent with Ashland as long as they could. He assumed she’d want to start dating soon, possibly even remarry, and he didn’t want to keep her from getting on with her life.

Kyle didn’t mean to put Tara on the spot. She said he didn’t. She’d been so lonely after Ashland cut her out of his life, and she knew Kyle understood after what happened with Summer. He asked what she planned to do about that loneliness. “If only there was a simple answer,” she replied. Jack arrived and asked Tara for a moment with Kyle. She left the room. He said he confronted Sally and her first instinct was to lie, so he ended it with her. Jack said Kyle could say I told you so. Kyle understood Jack was trying to see the best in the woman he was attracted to. Jack said even after Sally was busted, she still wouldn’t admit anything and she said it was a set up on Phyllis’s part. Kyle mentioned that Tara said the same thing, and knowing Phyllis, he guessed it made sense. Jack said Phyllis had crossed so many lines here, however, it was starting to look like Tara and Sally were more than just colleagues.

Jack said Sally was panicking and desperate to put the blame on Phyllis. Kyle said that if Sally was hiding something… Jack finished the statement – Tara could be hiding something too. Meanwhile, Tara eavesdropped on the conversation. Kyle said Phyllis couldn’t just hate Sally and Tara for no reason. Jack hated the way Phyllis handled this, but he wasn’t surprised, since she’d always been protective of her daughter. Kyle said that was why he attributed Phyllis’s actions to the pain of seeing her daughter move away. Jack said Phyllis had always been a pot-stirrer, but her instincts were always on the money. Tara walked away. Kyle asked if Jack really thought there was some conspiracy here. Jack didn’t want to think that, but too many things didn’t add up, and he couldn’t just dismiss it entirely. “Can you?” he asked.

Tara walked in and said Harrison was fast asleep. She told Kyle that she was thinking about a swim. It was a beautiful night. Her face fell when he didn’t agree to join her. He said to go ahead, because he had something to take care of. Kyle left, and Jack said he wanted to turn in. Tara told Jack she sensed something had shifted in the way he and Kyle viewed her. While their family bond was new, she hoped he knew he could ask her anything. She was an open book, and if she could put her concerns at ease, she asked him to give her that chance. Jack tried to postpone this talk, because he really did want to go to bed, but Tara didn’t want to let it fester. She knew the thing with Sally and Phyllis complicated matters. He said everything was complicated with them. She suggested things were too awkward and that she and Harrison should move out. He quickly said no – Harrison was part of the family, and he always would be, and that meant Tara was too. He asked her to reassure him that she’d been upfront about everything with him and Kyle and that he wouldn’t eventually learn something about her that would make him regret letting her into his home.

Kyle was at the Society bar staring into his drink. Sally walked up and asked him why it was so hard for everyone in this town to give her a chance – why were they all determined to ruin her life?

At Newman Media, Chloe told Adam about problems with her office. The internet was spotty, the fridge didn’t work, she needed a different chair and the lighting was bad. She asked if he gave her that office to mess with her. He sarcastically said he was up all night thinking of ways to make her work life miserable. She said she wouldn’t past him. He told her to order whatever she needed, and he asked if there was anything else. She didn’t reply, and he commented on her being at a loss for a comeback. He got news that his son was home. She said to tell Connor she said hi, and he said that he’d see her tomorrow if she decided to come back.

Rey brought Connor to Crimson Lights, and Sharon greeted them both. Sharon chatted with Connor and told him that Adam talked about him all the time. Frowning, Rey asked if Sharon and Adam had been in touch. Sharon ordered Connor lemonade and Rey told him to go have a seat, because Adam would be here soon. Once the child was out of earshot, Rey questioned Sharon. She said she briefly spoke with Adam when he came in for coffee, and they mostly discussed Connor. Rey asked if Adam was playing on Sharon’s old sympathies. Sharon said Adam was just a dad missing his kid. Adam arrived and overheard Sharon ask Rey for a kiss.

Adam joined Connor and asked about his trip. Connor enjoyed it. He got to spend lots of time with his mom. Connor asked to go see his grandma and grandpa, and Adam explained that they were in Europe on vacation. He said that maybe Faith could take Connor riding tomorrow. Connor hoped so. Connor was glad to be hanging out with Adam. Adam was glad to have Connor back. Rey’s back was turned, and he didn’t see Adam make eye contact with Sharon. “It was lonely here on my own” he said while staring at her. Sharon looked away.

Adam thanked Rey for driving Connor back and asked how Chelsea was. Rey thought she seemed to be doing okay – she was following the doctor’s instructions and going to therapy, and she looked after Connor. Rey thought Connor was great, and he’d been good with his grandmother. Adam couldn’t be more proud of his considerate and loving son. Adam said he had to go back to his office to get something. Father and son left.

Sharon offered Rey something to eat, and he said being with her was all he needed. Rey told Sharon how Connor and Anita played video games for hours. Sharon said Faith got to meet her favorite band, thanks to Devon and Moses. Rey saw the photo Faith posted, and he wanted Faith to tell him all about it. He asked about Mariah. Sharon said she just got some vague texts. She wished Mariah would reach out so Sharon could help her as her mom and therapist. Rey said he came home, and Mariah would too. She asked if Chelsea would really be okay without supervision. He said it was interesting to see Chelsea in a different environment, away from Adam. He thought the distance helped. He said Chelsea was with her family 24/7, so he didn’t spend much time with her. He tested Chelsea and gave her opportunities to give him the slip, but she never took advantage. Now, the local law enforcement would check in with Chelsea and she was required to carry a GPS enabled cell phone. He didn’t think she was going to do anything to jeopardize her access to Connor though.

Sharon thought Rey was amazing – Chelsea put him in the hospital, but she could hear the admiration in his voice. He forgave Chelsea – she’d been through so much physical and emotional trauma. He thought she truly regretted what she’d done and she deserved a second chance. She called him the kindest, most generous man she’d ever met. “If you’re into that sort of thing,” he replied. Sharon flashed back to Adam saying he thought she was more attracted to his wild side. She said that the draw was helping him become the person he was meant to be. Adam saw her point. He said he didn’t think Rey had a dark side, so whatever thing she had for bad boys in the past, she was clearly over it. In the present, Sharon told Rey that she loved everything about him, and she was grateful to be married to such a good man. He said he’d rather be sexy, handsome or brilliant. She said he was all that and more, so he suggested they go back to the house so she could prove it to him. She said they’d better go soon. As they were leaving, she found a book Connor left behind. He said Chelsea gave that to him for the ride home. Sharon admitted that, despite everything she did, Chelsea tried to be a good mom. Rey said Chelsea confessed that she wished she could take it all back – she hated what she did to him, to Adam and especially to Connor – breaking up his family. Sharon couldn’t imagine the guilt weighing on her. Rey said Chelsea truly regretted how things turned out with Adam. He thought Chelsea had a hard time letting go.

Chloe took a folder to Adam’s office, and she glanced around. Chelsea called, and the friends video chatted. Chelsea found out where Chloe was and asked if she was snooping. Chloe said no, then she changed that to “not really.” Chelsea asked if Chloe was trying to get fired. Chloe said no, it was a sweet deal so far – Adam gave her a big budget, and most importantly, he wasn’t getting in her way. He was also keeping his word to let her hire Chelsea. Chelsea said Adam must really feel bad. Chloe said Adam wasn’t doing Chelsea any favors – she was the best thing to ever happen to him, and he blew it. Chelsea appreciated the support, but now she realized that she blamed Adam for things that were all in her head. Chloe contended that Adam always was and always would be bad. Chelsea knew some people would say that about her, but it wasn’t that simple. She was just tired of all the rage, and she was finally ready to let it go.

Adam and Connor walked into his office and were surprised to see Chloe. Chloe directed Connor to Chelsea’s call. Chelsea started talking to Connor about the ride home. Adam said there was plenty of time to discuss that later – he came to get his laptop, and he needed to get Connor home. He said they could talk before Connor went to bed. Adam noted to Chloe that she’d been planning to go home. He and Connor left Chloe in the office. Chelsea was glad Connor seemed okay. Chloe said he’d be fine as long as she and Adam kept things strictly business and focused on co-parenting. Chelsea said of course.

Adam took Connor back to the main house. Connor told Adam they had to make some plans for when Chelsea came home. Adam dodged that and told Connor to go unpack.

Sally: Well, I was right. Tara, the text did come from phyllis, and she spied on us in the elevator.

Tara: I am dealing with a lot right now. The last thing I need is to get caught up in your drama. So just leave me out of it, please.

Phyllis: Wow, how does that feel, getting thrown under the bus?

Amanda: Hey. [ Chuckles ] When you said that you were gonna change, I didn’t know that you were gonna change. You look good.

Devon: Thank you very much. I appreciate that. Just threw on this suit.

Amanda: I know, you are wearing that suit.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] Alright. You ready to go?

Amanda: Let me finish my wine first.

Devon: Okay. What are you thinking about?

Amanda: Hmm. Let’s see, I was just thinking that if you really wanted to go to dinner, you would not come downstairs looking so damn good.

Abby: Again, you truly have been my rock.

Devon: If that’s your way of saying that I’m hard-headed, probably know some people that agree with you.

Abby: No, that’s my way of saying that you have been a really great friend.

Nate: Okay. Remember when I had some good news, but I wanted to sit on it until it was locked in?

Elena: Of course I do. I remember I tried to seduce it out of you that night. But somehow you resisted my charms.

Transcript provided and proofread by Suzanne

Josslyn: Hi.

Cameron: Hi.  Come in, please. Okay. I-I just got to get my keys. Hey, Joss.

Elizabeth: Cameron, have you seen my —

Cameron: Mom.

Josslyn: Oh, Mrs. Baldwin.

Elizabeth: Sorry. Didn’t mean to interrupt.

Trina: Not that I’m complaining, but this is the second time we’ve worked remotely. You sure we can keep the gallery closed this much?

Ava: If a client needs me, they can call me. Besides, before you know it, you’ll be off at PCU busy with classes. Really, you should take every opportunity to enjoy this time with friends.

Spencer: I couldn’t agree more.

Nikolas: Okay, bye.

Sam: Hey.

Nikolas: Sam.

Sam: Hi.

Nikolas: I keep meaning to call you and your sisters.

Sam: That’s okay. Um, Mom told me you went to visit her at Spring Ridge. What did you think?

Nikolas: It’s not bad for a minimum-security prison. I mean, the facilities are infinitely better than Pentonville. The focus is less on incarceration, more on rehabilitation. I think on the whole, it’s a good move for Alexis.

Sam: But?

Nikolas: Ryan Chamberlain is currently being housed there.

Olivia: Who wants to help me decorate?

Brook Lynn: Well, Valentin can’t. He’s actually missing Bailey’s feeding for an important meeting.

Valentin: I thought you’d enjoy spending time alone with our daughter.

Olivia: [ Scoffs ] What are you looking for?

Valentin: My phone. Um, would it be too much to ask that we don’t let Wiley play with this?

Brook Lynn: Ask Michael or Willow. Not my kid, not my problem. Is it, sweetie? ‘Cause you would never take Daddy’s phone.

Valentin: Now I am late.

Olivia: Can we be expecting you for Wiley’s birthday party today?

Valentin: Wouldn’t miss that for the world. Au revoir, mon ange. Don’t miss Daddy too much.

Chase: Sorry about that.

Valentin: Please tell me this is not another toy for Wiley. Trust me, between Olivia, Michael, and Willow, we have that area covered.

Chase: Willow said I only needed to bring myself, but Wiley’s my stepson. I didn’t want to show up empty-handed. Thank you.

Valentin: Actually…

Chase: What?

Valentin: I owe you an apology.

[ Knock on door ]

Anna: Hi.

Dante: Why you holding out on me?

[ Door closes ]

Anna: I’m not.

Dante: Really?

Anna: Yeah.

Dante: I thought we were sharing our information in our investigation into Peter’s disappearance.

Anna: We are.

Dante: So what changed?

Chase: What do you have to apologize for?

Valentin: Detective, I am the reason that Peter was raised by his father, Cesar Faison. I turned a blind eye to his worst traits, and I was slow to react. I-I didn’t do anything until it was too late.

Chase: Look, there is a lot that you should be sorry for. But Peter putting me in this chair isn’t one of them. Only Peter is responsible for Peter.

Valentin: You’re a kind man. Thank you… for your willingness to let me off the hook.

Chase: And almost dying did have its good points. It sped up my relationship with Willow.

Valentin: That’s amazing. Congratulations on your marriage.

Chase: Thank you. Now I’m just waiting for the day that I can get out of this chair and be Willow’s husband in… every sense of the word.

Valentin: Well, they say attitude is everything. I have no doubt that your positive attitude will work wonders in your life. Just know that I deeply regret my part in the collateral damage in Peter’s wake. Have a good day.

Anna: I just saw you yesterday. If I’d found out anything more, I would have told you.

Dante: Oh, yeah, just like how you told me that you and Finn were gonna be in the sub-basement.

Anna: Yeah, it was a spur-of-the-moment thing.

Dante: Oh.

Anna: It was a long shot. I didn’t know until we got down there that it was a legitimate lead. Did you hear anything from forensics?

Dante: Yeah. They’ve been working through the night picking up partial prints.

Anna: Okay?

Dante: Mostly unusable.

Anna: Oh. So, any fingerprints or DNA that could help us identify Peter’s companion?

Dante: Just blood mostly, in the corridors and elevator.

Anna: Mm-hmm.

Dante: All belonging to Peter.

Anna: Oh. And this blood, is it… droplet or a smear pattern?

Dante: It’s droplets.

Anna: So that means that Peter wasn’t dragged out of there.

Dante: Yeah, it means Peter was carried out of there, or he walked out under his own power. Either way, it means he’s still out there.

Elizabeth: Good morning, Josslyn.

Josslyn: Morning. Um, I’m gonna meet you at the pool.

Cameron: Sounds good.

[ Door closes ]

Cameron: So, Joss and I are kind of together.

Elizabeth: Kind of? You guys looked pretty together to me.

Cameron: Are you mad at me?

Elizabeth: [ Chuckling ] No. No, I’m not mad. Josslyn is a sweet girl, and she’s been a good friend to you. And you’ve known each other forever. I’m glad you have each other.

Cameron: Me, too. And I-I’m sorry for not telling you sooner. I wasn’t intentionally keeping Joss and me from you. I guess I’m just kind of used to going to Franco with these kinds of things.

Brook Lynn: Once again, you’re criticizing my mothering skills.

Olivia: And once again, you are getting defensive over nothing. Honey, I was giving you a compliment. You’re always putting down your mothering skills, and I’m trying to tell you that the opposite is true. You’re amazing with Bailey.

Brook Lynn: I am?

Olivia: Honey, you’re a natural. And you were right, reminding me that I trusted you with Leo when he was a newborn. I actually forgot how good you are with babies.

Brook Lynn: Guess I keep forgetting, too.

Olivia: I know firsthand that you are capable of immense love and selflessness. Honey, and now with your own, I think maybe you’re being so generous with Valentin because you’re afraid to let yourself really feel that overpowering mother love.

Brook Lynn: Guess I never thought of it that way. Valentin’s just so good with her, I just figure, why wouldn’t I support that, right?

Olivia: Honey, it’s okay to be vulnerable. To let yourself love this baby. That tough shell of yours? Bailey already cracked it.

Spencer: I’m a firm believer in friends enjoying themselves.

Trina: Old friends or new?

Spencer: It’s always more interesting hanging out with new friends. Don’t you think?

Ava: You know, I wasn’t aware that the two of you knew each other — well, until the other day, when Spencer exposed you for trying to get Nikolas and me back together. “Parent-trapping,” I think he called it.

Trina: I shouldn’t have gotten involved.

Spencer: It was my fault, too. Trina and I learned a valuable lesson — to stay out of other people’s business.

Ava: Well, I hope you mean that, Spencer.

Spencer: I do. I’m sorry you didn’t bring little Avery with you. I would have loved to say hello. I’m sorry. Is she still living with Aunt Carly?

Ava: Hey, Trina, order whatever you want from the bar, as long as it’s nonalcoholic. My treat, okay? And I’m gonna go order myself a very bloody Mary.

Trina: [ Chuckles ]

Ava: Have fun.

Trina: Thank you.

Spencer: That was generous of Ava.

Trina: You seem surprised. Ava’s actually been a really good friend to me. And I think I know how to be one for her.

Spencer: How?

Trina: By finding out who’s been stalking her and Nikolas.

Sam: My mother didn’t tell me she was in the same facility with Ryan Chamberlain.

Nikolas: Uh, she probably didn’t want to worry you.

Sam: But you did?

Nikolas: There’s nothing to worry about. Ryan is still locked in. He can’t move. He can’t talk. He’s not a danger to Alexis or anyone else.

Sam: No, no, I’m not buying anything about that raging psychopath.

Nikolas: I wheeled him and parked him into a corner, literally. He couldn’t so much as twitch in protest. All he can do is blink.

Sam: Uh, I’m sorry to say this, but I’m with Ava on this one. I think Ryan’s capable of fooling anyone, including you and his doctors.

Nikolas: Well, whether it’s Ryan or some copycat devotee, Ava and I are getting divorced, since it’s what the stalker seems to want.

Sam: But getting a divorce wouldn’t be your first choice?

Nikolas: No, it’s not my choice. It’s Ava. I mean, the stalker proved that he can get to Avery, and that was it for Ava. It’s a line she won’t cross. And how could I blame her? Um, enough about me. What’s going on with you?

Sam: Okay, um… I’m working a case. And it’s no secret that Shawn Butler didn’t shoot Hayden Barnes, and he hired me to find out who did. And that’s why I tracked you down here to the Metro Court, because you’re gonna help me find him.

Brooklyn: Listen, kid, you’re cute, but I think it’s better if we keep our arrangement strictly professional. Look, I know you can’t do that with your daddy/papa, ’cause he doesn’t even know you’re not really his. And do I feel guilty about that? Yes…and no. Yes, because Valentin is turning out to be a really good father. Aww, here you go, Mama. And he’s actually a pretty decent guy, too. But no, and I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but your biological father is a wall-crawling psycho. So it’s actually much, much healthier for you to bond with Valentin.  [ Sighs ] I mean, he would protect you regardless. But it doesn’t hurt that he absolutely adores you. Aww, here you go, sweetie. Shh. Shh, shh. As for you and me, I think it’s better if neither of us gets too comfortable with one another. So save your adoring eyes for your real mother.

Chase: Real mother? What do you mean by that?

Elizabeth: I’m sorry you don’t have Franco to talk to anymore. But he would be thrilled you and Josslyn are together. He always just wanted to see you happy.

Cameron: Yeah, I think so, too.

Elizabeth: It’s tough, isn’t it? Getting used to not having him around. Sometimes when I have a really difficult day at work, I come home thinking I just can’t wait to tell Franco about it.

Cameron: Well, you can always talk to me.

Elizabeth: And you can always talk to me.

Cameron: Thanks. I’ll see you later.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Cameron: And, Mom?

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Cameron: Franco would want all of us to be happy.

Elizabeth: See, isn’t this nice — going for a walk, getting a little fresh air, soaking up the sun, little vitamin D?

Finn: Have a private conversation?

Elizabeth: Last thing I want is for you to turn yourself in to protect me.

Finn: And the last thing I want is for them to find Peter’s body and your DNA to be on it. I’d rather take the fall alone than implicate you in any way.  The best thing for everyone is if this body’s never found.

Elizabeth: I just got some stuff I need to work through first, nothing you need to worry about. But then I promise, I will be as happy as Franco would want me to be.

Cameron: Good.

Dante: So, you, uh, expecting someone? You seemed surprised to see me.

Anna: Valentin.

Dante: Mm.

Anna: Well, he wants to bring Peter in as much as we do.

Dante: I guess who you decide to collaborate with is your decision.

Anna: Yes, it is.

Dante: He doesn’t have the most reassuring track record, Anna.

Anna: I think he’s changed, Dante.

Dante: Well, people don’t change. And Valentin is always out for himself. Doesn’t matter who gets in the way.

Anna: I’ll take that under advisement.

Valentin: Hello, Dante. Have you found Peter?

Dante: Not yet. Have you?

Valentin: [ Sighs ] No. Not yet.

Anna: See you.

Valentin:Were you exchanging information?

Anna: Not all of it.

Sam: Hayden went to see Shawn while he was in prison, and she hinted that she might know the identity of her shooter. But she left Port Charles before Shawn could press her for any information.

Nikolas: This is the first time she left, correct? Months after the shooting?

Sam: Yes, correct.

Nikolas: I don’t know how I can help you.

Sam: Come on. You were married to her.

Nikolas: Yeah, the operative word being “were.” Our relationship was complicated, to put it mildly. I mean, technically, we were still married when I was presumed dead.

Sam: Oh, is that what you’re calling it?

Nikolas: How about the time Valentin tried to kill me, and so I chose to go into hiding?

Sam: For three years.

Nikolas: When I decided to take back my life, I contacted Hayden. She and Jax, they worked with me to reclaim what was rightfully mine, and I intended to cut her in on a share of the proceeds. But she took off, because she was afraid of Valentin.

Sam: Leaving Violet with Finn.  I mean, Finn told me that Hayden hasn’t been in contact with Violet at all.

Nikolas: Hey, I tried to track Hayden down. It’s like she disappeared in a black hole.

Sam: Well, we’re trying to look for Hayden’s mother, Naomi Dreyfus. Hopefully she could steer us in the right direction, but we’ve hit a wall there.  Can you do me a favor? If you can find out any information on Hayden, will you let me know?

Nikolas: Of course.  Just remember, Hayden made toxic friends and questionable choices. My advice to you and Shawn — stop looking for her unless you want trouble arriving on your doorstep. Now, if you’ll excuse me.

[ Spencer clears throat ]

Trina: You still here?

Spencer: May I join you?

Trina: It’s a free country.

Spencer: So, what shall we charge to Ava’s tab first? Does a virgin piña colada sound good? How about a mai tai minus the rum?

Trina: I don’t think you were included on my tab. Besides, can’t Cassadines cover their own drinks?

Spencer: A Cassadine can not only cover his own drinks, he can supply them, along with a castle and a state-of-the-art sound system.

Trina: Is that an invitation?

Spencer: Are you accepting?

Josslyn: Accepting what?

Trina: Spencer just offered to throw us a party.

Nikolas: Put that drink on my tab. Shouldn’t you be swimming in the pool instead of a bloody Mary?

Ava: Pool bar doesn’t serve booze before noon. And you should not be seen with me. Our stalker could be watching.

Nikolas: Is that what has you so upset?

Ava: [ Sighs ] I was just reminded that I cannot be with my daughter until you and I are divorced.

Nikolas: I’m sorry. Does it help that I saw Ryan?

Ava: When?

Nikolas: I visited Alexis at Spring Ridge. Ryan Chamberlain is staying at the same facility.

Ava: Why didn’t you tell me sooner?

Nikolas: Because there is nothing to tell. Ryan’s condition is unchanged. He is completely locked in. I honestly don’t see how he could be stalking anyone or even communicating to someone to carry out his orders.

Ava: Well, if that’s true, then it really just makes things worse. We have no idea who’s terrorizing us, just that they’re as sick as Ryan, and their anonymity makes them even more dangerous.

Josslyn: Spencer. God, it’s just so nice of you to throw us a party.

Trina: Oh, we’ve got to have a photo booth.

Josslyn: A deejay and a full lighting package.

Trina: Bungee jumping from the parapet —

Spencer: Slow down. I haven’t agreed to anything.

Trina: So much for making it up to me.

Cameron: Ooh, what’s Spencer making up for this time?

Trina: First, he sabotages my plan to get Ava and Nikolas back together. Then he offers to throw a party to make amends. Now he’s backing out of said party.

Cameron: Dude, you got to throw that party. I thought you were the guy with no limits. I mean, didn’t you rent that yacht one time in, uh, “Ibeeza”?

Spencer: First, it’s pronounced “Ibitha.”

Cameron: Oh, right. Sorry. I don’t know what I was thinking.

Spencer: Second, I’m not backing out of anything. Whatever the lady wants, the lady gets.

Olivia: Hey, honey.

Dante: Hey. Whoa, that’s a lot of glitter. But you got a lot of glitter in your hair, too.

Olivia: Uh, yeah, come on in. Come in.

Dante: Hey.

Olivia: Charlotte thought it would be a good idea to make a birthday card for Wiley out of glitter. Rocco and Leo thought it’d be a better idea to throw glitter all over the backyard.

Dante: Oh, he didn’t. No, and all over themselves and all over you?

Olivia: I’m very glad that the boys are good friends. They are very happy. Charlotte, not so much.

Dante: I can imagine.

Olivia: Yeah. So, Rocco told me that, uh — that you’re taking him to see Lulu in the next couple days, huh?

Dante: Yeah, yeah, that’s the plan.

Olivia: It’s good. That’s good. He should, uh — he should be seeing his mom.

Dante: Why do I get the feeling you’re gonna tell me something I don’t want to hear?

Brook Lynn: God, Chase. You could give a girl a heart attack, sneaking up on me like that.

Chase: Why are you telling your daughter you’re not her real mother?

Brook Lynn: Because I don’t feel like her real mother.

Chase: Look, I’m not an expert on babies, but I think you’re selling yourself short. I think you are a real mother to Bailey.  Come on, I-I was your roommate. I’ve seen firsthand how fiercely devoted you are to the people that you care about.

Valentin: Have you seen Finn?

Anna: I did.

Valentin: And?

Anna: It was him. He was on the roof with Peter.

Valentin: Anna, I am so sorry.

Anna: Yeah, it is what it is. I just have to figure out a way to protect him.

Valentin: From what? Why does Finn need protecting? Anna, what is going on? What happened on that roof?

Anna: Finn pushed Peter. And he fell down the stairs. And, um… he’s convinced he’s dead.

Elizabeth: Well, this is a surprise. Come in.

Sam: Thank you.

Elizabeth: Did you bring more of Jason’s stuff to burn?

Sam: Oh, gosh, how embarrassing. No, I think that was enough danger to last me the rest of the year.

Elizabeth: Well, after finding out that Jason and Carly were engaged, I think we both needed to blow off some steam.  Elizabeth: Hope Dante didn’t give you a hard time.

Dante: You know, for what it’s worth, I think Jason messed up. He had a chance at a lifetime. And he didn’t take it. If it were me, I would have chosen you.

Sam: It turned out alright at the end.

Elizabeth: Well, if we’re not burning anything, what brings you by?

Sam: Your sister Hayden. I need to find her.

Anna: Finn confronted Peter on the roof when he was waiting for the helicopter, and he begged him for the antidote. But Peter refused and chose to toss the vial off the roof, which just… infuriated Finn. He lost it and shoved Peter. He fell down the stairs, smashing his head open in the process. By the time Finn got to him on the landing, he checked for a pulse, but there wasn’t one. And at that point, it was more important for him to save Chase. So he took Peter’s body and deposited it in a — in an abandoned lab, in the sub-basement.

Valentin: Helena’s lab.

Anna: Yeah. Um… Finn put Peter’s body in a freezer.

Valentin: What, by himself?

Anna: He’s vague about that.

Valentin: Meaning he had help.

Anna: Yeah, possibly. Probably. But he refuses to admit it. But listen. This is the important part. He put Peter’s body in the freezer because he couldn’t figure out a safe way to move it. And now he took me there yesterday to show me, but the body’s gone. There’s no sign of Peter.

Valentin: Dead or alive?

Anna: That’s the million-dollar question. The PCPD, they found traces of Peter’s blood in the lab, the elevator, the access corridors. But it’s not clear yet whether the body was carried out of there.

Valentin: Or if he walked out.

Anna: Yeah.

Valentin: What does Dante know?

Anna: Just that Peter’s missing and hurt. He found a lot of the blood actually yesterday. But the PCPD, they obviously — they don’t know about Finn’s connection to any of this.

Valentin: Yet.

Anna: Yeah. Jordan says she wants to put most of her attention on the person that was on the roof with Peter, which is concerning. And all forensics has proven is that, dead or alive, Peter was removed from the basement.

Brook Lynn: This whole baby thing’s got me rattled. I mean, I was fine when Olivia gave me Leo to take care of, but here, I just feel like I’m under a microscope.

Chase: Lots of people living under one roof telling you how to raise your baby?

Brook Lynn: Yeah, and not enough space to get this mothering thing right, although, shock of all shocks, Olivia told me I’m doing a good job.

Chase: Well, if anyone can sense someone going through the motions, it’s Olivia. I wish I could say the same for myself.

Brook Lynn: What are you talking about?

Chase: Going through the motions. I feel like I’m — I’m putting on a front for Willow. It’s — it’s like I’m this optimistic guy who thinks he’s gonna jump out of the chair any day.

Brook Lynn: You will.

Chase: Yeah, I’m trying. I really am grateful to the Quartermaines for asking me back to stay at the house.

Brook Lynn: Trust me. They’re putting up Valentin. You’re easy-peasy.

Chase: It’s the perfect situation for me. The house already has wheelchair access because of Lila, and Willow’s just up the driveway. What more could I ask for?

Brook Lynn: To walk.

Chase: Yeah. Yeah, that. It’s like I’m faking it, or I’m bluffing until one day, I miraculously wake up, and I actually feel like Willow’s husband.

Brook Lynn: Meanwhile, thanks to, uh, Nelle Benson and her scissors of doom, I can’t even sing Bailey a lullaby.

Chase: Maybe I can help with that. Can I hold Bailey?

Brook Lynn: Of course. Come here, sweet one. Take this.

[ Bailey fusses, Brook Lynn clicks tongue ]

Brook Lynn: Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Shh, shh, shh, shh.

Chase: Aww. Hey, you. Hey. Oh, my gosh. You know, when my mom would rock me to sleep, she’d sing me this song. She’d sing…lullaby and good night you’re your mother’s delight shining angels by your side my darling, abide soft and warm is your bed close your eyes and rest your head soft and warm is your bed close your eyes and rest your head

[ Bailey fussing ]

Chase: Yeah. Yeah.

Olivia: I-I don’t mean to pry.

Dante: Well, but you’re gonna.

Olivia: Uh — every time you see Lulu in that facility, it costs you. Now, and don’t get me wrong, I am so thrilled that you are back at the PCPD being a detective. But a job does not equal a life.

Dante: Lulu was my life, Ma. And now I barely even have a legal right to see her. Thankfully, Laura allows me to.

Olivia: Oh, of course she does.

Dante: But — but my point is, the — the divorce, I-I’m the one who insisted on that.

Olivia: And you’ve been beating yourself up about it for months. But it just seems like lately — I don’t know, maybe seems like you’re lightening up a little bit, trying to cut yourself some slack. I just wonder if — if maybe that didn’t have something to do with Sam.

Dante: [ Sighs ]

Elizabeth: So, what, Shawn was framed for Hayden’s shooting. The judge who sentenced him is now being investigated for racial bias. And now Shawn’s been released, and the governor commuted his sentence to time served.

Sam: Yeah. That’s pretty much it. Now that the truth is out, whoever framed Shawn could pose a danger to Hayden.  I know that you and Hayden weren’t exactly friends at the time.

Elizabeth: We didn’t even know we were sisters.

Sam: But you eventually did grow closer. And if there’s maybe some sort of information that Hayden told you at some time that you didn’t think was important then that is actually important now, I mean, anything that could help us figure out who shot your sister.

Elizabeth: Was Hayden in the wrong place at the wrong time? Or was she shot because of you? Were you the one behind this? Was Hayden…

Spencer: Do you want something to drink or eat? I’ll put it on the Cassadine tab. You can save Ava’s offer for another time.

Trina: I’m good, thanks.

Spencer: Okay.

Trina: Spencer.

Spencer: Change your mind?

Trina: Yes, about the party at Wyndemere. If you don’t think your dad will approve, don’t have it. Joss and I kind of forced you into it anyway.

Spencer: Thanks.

Trina:  I know things are just getting back on track for you and your dad. I wouldn’t want to spoil it.

Spencer: Trina.  Just get ready.

Trina: For what?

Spencer: For the biggest rager Port Charles has ever seen.

Ava: Until we figure out who is stalking us, who’s threatening us, threatening Avery, there is no future for us, Nikolas.

Nikolas: Oh, don’t say that.

Ava: Please don’t. Really, you j– you just make things more difficult.

Nikolas: I don’t mean to. Don’t you know? There’s just — there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to make you feel safe.

Ava: I do know that. And I hate seeing you hurting, too.

Valentin: We’ve got to find Peter before the PCPD does, before he can hurt anybody else.

Anna: W-we don’t know if he’s alive or dead. Finn is convinced that he’s dead.

Valentin: Anna, I say this as delicately as I can. I am not emotionally attached to Finn like you are. I don’t have to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Anna: [ Sighs ] Where do we go from here? I mean, I-I’m lying by omission to Dante and Jordan.

Valentin: There are two possible scenarios. Peter is dead, and somebody has moved his body, or he’s alive, and he’s in hiding, and we’ve got problems. And I think it’s much more likely that he’s alive.

Brook Lynn: Shh, shh, shh, shh. Bailey’s sleeping like, well, a baby.

Chase: My singing put her to sleep.

Brook Lynn: Yeah.

Chase: You know, maybe you could tell Willow that. Can’t help but feeling that this version of me isn’t enough for her.

Brook Lynn: Chase, any woman would be lucky to have you as a husband.

Chase: And Bailey is lucky to have you as a mom. I’ve seen the way that she looks at you and the way that you look at her. And I-I know I’m not a parent, but I think going all-in on loving your child, it’s half the battle.

Dante: We have talked about this, okay? Sam and I, we’re just friends, okay? And we’re barely that after she threw us both in the harbor on the fourth, okay?

Olivia: You see?

Dante: What?

Olivia: This is what I’m talking about.

Dante: What?

Olivia: The — the — the spark!

Dante: No. What spark? This is nothing. I don’t even know what you’re talking — Rocco, let’s go, man!

Olivia: No, you’re smiling! You’re — you’re laughing! The other day, I saw you do a completely spontaneous rant about the Yankees. Honey, you’ve got such an amazing capacity to embrace life. And maybe it’s got something to do with Sam. Maybe not. I could be right. I could be wrong. I don’t know. But I know that if Lulu was here, she’d want you to stop moping around. She would want you to live your life.

Dante: I know. And I’m — I’m trying to, Ma, to be in the present moment as much as I can, but it is — it’s really tough. Maybe I-I do have to start thinking about… letting go of Lulu.

Olivia: So, I’m right?

Dante: [ Sighs ] Uh, yeah. Okay. As much as it pains me to say that, maybe you are.

Sam: Elizabeth, can you think of anything that Hayden told you that might be relevant?

Elizabeth: No. No, I-I can’t think of anything. I’m just trying to process what you told me.

Sam: Shawn seems pretty convinced that she knew who was behind her attempted murder.

Elizabeth: Well, she didn’t talk to me about it. But there were a lot of things we didn’t talk about. She changed a lot once — once she became a mother. Everything she did was about Violet. She was so loving and committed. That’s why it still doesn’t make sense she would just disappear and leave Violet behind.

Sam: Okay, so maybe she disappeared to protect Violet.

Elizabeth: Or something happened, and Hayden can’t come back.

Josslyn: Were you and Spencer finalizing details for the party?

Trina: Actually, I was gonna let him off the hook, but he wasn’t having it. He swears it’s gonna be an epic party.

Cameron: Don’t get your hopes up too high, Trina. Spencer’s a nice kid and all, but sometimes, he doesn’t deliver exactly what he promises.

Trina: So you’re saying he’s a liar?

Josslyn: More of a compulsive exaggerator. You see, Spencer is capable of some incredible things, but he thinks he has to be all incredible all the time, sometimes to the point of being obnoxious.

Trina: Are you warning me away from Spencer?

Ava: I miss you so much. And I miss Avery. I want you both back.

Nikolas: I know. Me, too.

Brook Lynn: I tried not to get attached. You’re Maxie’s daughter, not mine. But you’ve grown on me, Bailey. Good god. Who wouldn’t fall in love with a face like yours?

[ Bailey fusses ]

Brook Lynn: Yeah. Yeah.

Dante: No, no, no, Rocco, Rocco, Rocco, no, no, no! No glitter on your person bef– off before you get in the car, please. [ Sighs ] What do you think the odds of that happening are?

Olivia: It’s going all over your car.

Dante: Yeah. Yeah. Alright. I’ll see you. Bye.

Olivia: Hey. Come on back if you need any advice.

Dante: Oh, yeah. I know where to go if I need someone to talk to. I think I’m good for now, though. But hey. And this is the only thing I’m gonna say about Sam.

Olivia: Mm-hmm.

Dante: Butt out.

Sam: I’m sorry if my investigation has dredged up painful memories for you. If I learn where Hayden is, you will be my first call.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Sam: Of course.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Nikolas: Hello?

Elizabeth: You need to come over right away.

Nikolas: Everything okay?

Elizabeth: We need to talk about Hayden.

Nikolas: What about her?

Elizabeth: About what you did to her.

Josslyn: I’m not warning you away from Spencer.

Cameron: Although that might actually be a good idea.

Josslyn: I have a noninterference clause when it comes to other people’s relationships, or lack thereof. You know, if you want to be with Spencer or Victor or someone else or nobody at all, I am here to support, not to judge.

Trina: Thank you.

Cameron: And besides, Joss and I, we’re still figuring out stuff for ourselves.

Trina: What’s to figure out?

Josslyn: Well, Cam’s mom, for one thing. Mrs. Baldwin walked in on us.

Trina: Embarrassing.

Josslyn: Yeah.

Cameron: Very. But after my mom and I talked, she was actually pretty chill about it.

Trina: Lucky you. I would actually sink through the floor if my mom ever caught me kissing a guy.

Ava: [ Sniffles ]

Spencer: Everything okay?

Ava: What do you want, Spencer?

Spencer: I guess I deserve your suspicion. I wasn’t very subtle about my anger toward you.

Ava: I know you have your reasons. I know that — that you needed me to testify to help you with Valentin. And when your father came home, I practically blackmailed him into marrying me.

Spencer: No one’s perfect.

Ava: Certainly neither of us.

Spencer: Since I’ve been home, I’ve seen how much my father loves you and you love him. Do you think that we can put the past behind us, start fresh? Is it possible that we could declare a truce?

Anna: Why do you believe that Peter survived?

Valentin: Who’s gonna move the body? What’s the point? I mean, unless Finn has some unknown ally ready to cover for him. Come on. This is Peter we’re talking about. He’s not the first dead man to get up and walk away in Port Charles. And now he’s had weeks to go to ground and cover his tracks.

Anna: Yeah. That makes sense. I can’t help hoping that he’s dead.

Valentin: I know. I know.

Anna: It would just be a relief to know that I wasn’t the one who had to kill him.

Valentin: See, this is how you and I are different. I’m ready to kill Peter myself. I want him dead and buried, where he’s no longer a threat to anyone I love.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Brook Lynn (to Valentin): What you need to do is back off.

Elizabeth (to Nikolas): You had Hayden shot.

Spencer (to Ava): Why do you keep sending my father mixed signals?

Austin (to Chase): Do I need to watch my back the way Valentin says?

Sam (to Shawn): I’m afraid I have bad news.

Michael (to Jason): I’m going to take a page out of your book.

Carly: What are you two doing?

Kyle: Hey, just spoke with tara. She’s on her way here.

Jack: She know why you want to see her?

Kyle: No, I only told her i wanted to talk.

Jack: I still don’t know what to make of this security footage that phyllis sent us. It’s pretty clear sally and tara are both upset.

Kyle: Well, I wonder if tara found out something about sally.

Jack: Like what?

Kyle: Maybe tara found out that sally was involved with summer going off to italy.

Jack: I really don’t think that’s true.

Kyle: I’m just wondering. It would explain why tara was so upset in the elevator. Phyllis has been blaming her for summer leaving.

Jack: No, phyllis’ theory is that sally and tara have been working together, and believe me, she sees this video as proof positive.

Kyle: Okay, phyllis only sees what she wants to see, but there’s no sense in speculating further. Tara’s on her way here, and we’ll get to the bottom of this. There’s probably just a simple explanation.

Sally: So, is that why you keep harassing me? ‘Cause you think I did something nasty to your daughter.

Phyllis: Oh, not you alone. You and tara.

Sally: Summer’s in italy having the time of her life, taking the fashion world by storm. So what exactly did I do to her? Because if I was responsible for this — and I’m not — you should be thanking me instead of taking my phone and sending fake text messages pretending to be me.

Phyllis: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Sally: So you’re just continuing to deny it.

Phyllis: Well, why would I do something like that? Let’s think about it. Unless I wanted the person who was receiving the text to freak out and rush over here and confront you because she thought she was in trouble.

Sally: Okay, well, if that was your plan, it obviously failed because nobody freaked out.

Phyllis: Hmm. Not in the lobby.

[ Clicks tongue ] In the elevator.

Sally: What are you talking about?

Phyllis: The argument you and tara were having in the elevator.

Sally: There are security cameras in the elevator. Did you spy on us?

Phyllis: I am the proprietor of this establishment. I need to know what’s going on at all times.

Sally: I cannot believe that you would go to such extremes.

Phyllis: The cameras aren’t hidden.

Sally: You were snooping on a private conversation.

Phyllis: It’s an elevator, not a confessional.

Tara: I can’t wait anymore, sally. I’m needed at home.

Sally: Well, I was right. Tara, the text did come from phyllis, and she spied on us in the elevator.

Tara: I am dealing with a lot right now. The last thing I need is to get caught up in your drama. So just leave me out of it, please.

Phyllis: Wow, how does that feel, getting thrown under the bus?

Amanda: Hey.

Devon: Hey, you.

Amanda: Moses let me in when he was on his way to see nate. I hope you don’t mind.

Devon: No, of course I don’t mind. I don’t know, we should get you your own key made.

Amanda: Uh, are you sure that you’re ready to level up like that?

Devon: I mean, I’m just throwing the idea out there. I don’t know.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] So how was abby? Did she hear from mariah?

Devon: Yes, she did, just a text message saying that she’s gonna be back in time for her next doctor’s appointment.

Amanda: That’s all she said?

Devon: It’s all a little bit odd, but I’ll fill you in over dinner. I know that you’re seeing phyllis later, so we can eat earlier. Um, I’m gonna go upstairs and change. But while you wait, I think you should open up a bottle of something really nice because we’re celebrating.

Amanda: We are?

Devon: We are. Sutton ames is gonna finally pay for his decades-old crime because of you.

Amanda: Okay, not so fast. It’s not a slam dunk yet.

Devon: Yeah, well, it’s gonna be.

Amanda: I appreciate your confidence in me, but I’m not counting on anything. Besides, you know, we’re not supposed to be talking about the case, right? I just want to focus on the two of us.

Devon: I’m more than fine with that. I’ll be back.

Victoria: Hey. All of my loose ends are tied up at the office. I just have to pack, and then we can head to the airport. Next stop, new york, if you’re up for it still.

Ashland: I am. My suitcase is packed and the jet is all ready.

Victoria: Are you feeling okay?

Ashland: I am fine. I’m actually feeling better because while you were away, i made an appointment to see that specialist in new york to discuss my treatment options.

Victoria: I am so glad that you haven’t changed your mind about fighting this illness. I know — I know that it wasn’t an easy decision to make.

Ashland: No, it wasn’T. But I’ll be grateful for any extra moments I can get because I’ll be spending them with harrison and with you.

Victoria: I love the sound of that.

Ashland: Keep your expectations in check. Odds the treatment will extend my life past a little time are remote.

Victoria: Well, don’t tell me the odds. It just makes me more stubborn.

Ashland: You know, that stubbornness is something I find very attractive.

Victoria: Look, I know — i know there are no guarantees, but I’m ready for whatever happens next. And I’ll be with you every step of the way.

Give every morning a

fresh start

Devon: [ Sighs ] Hey.

Amanda: Hey.

[ Chuckles ] When you said that you were gonna change, I didn’t know that you were gonna change. You look good.

Devon: Thank you very much. I appreciate that. Just threw on this suit.

Amanda: I know, you are

wearing that suit.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] Alright. You ready to go?

Amanda: Let me finish my wine first.

Devon: Okay. What are you thinking about?

Amanda: Hmm. Let’s see, I was just thinking that if you really wanted to go to dinner, you would not come downstairs looking so damn good.

Devon: If it’s a problem, i can go back upstairs and I can change into something less distracting.

Amanda: That’s a good idea. Yeah, we should go upstairs.

Devon: Oh, you want to come with me?

Amanda: Well, I have to help you get out of that shirt.

Devon: We’re not gonna make dinner, are we?

Amanda: No, we are not.

Victoria: Okay, yes, I will definitely bring you something back from new york. I promise.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Have fun with your dad and be good. I love you, too. Bye.

Ashland: Johnny and katie are gonna miss you.

Victoria: Yes, well, billy will keep them so busy I doubt they’ll notice that I’m gone. But I was wondering if maybe you wanted to take a little time before we go to have a conversation with harrison about your health.

Ashland: Well, I don’t want to deal with tara. When we spoke earlier, she was so unreasonable. I just don’t need the aggravation right now.

Victoria: Well, don’t let your frustration with her keep you away from your son.

Ashland: She’s just being so irrational. I mean, I doubt that she’d even allow me to talk to him alone. She’d probably be nervous that i would say something about my illness without her there to supervise.

Victoria: Why is it so important for you to talk to him on your own?

Ashland: I get so little time with him as it is.

Victoria: It has to be more than just that.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] You know, there’s so much tension between tara and me right now. He picks up on that. It’s got to be stressful for him. I mean, I heard that he had nightmares after what happened in the park. We can’t predict what he’s gonna remember about me when he grows up — maybe nothing at all. But maybe it’ll stick with him, you know, when his dad told him he was sick. And that’s why I want it to be calm and comforting and reassuring. And I want it to be between me and my son. And if tara’s there, you know, I’m sure she’ll find a way to make it about her.

Victoria: Well, obviously, i don’t know her as well as you do, but I’m looking at this as a mother, and I can tell you, if billy had something unsettling to tell the kids, I’d want to be there. I mean, I probably wouldn’t say very much, but I’d want to show them my support, regardless of what was going on with their father. I think that it would be good for harrison to receive this message from both of his parents.

Ashland: Well, I suppose it’s worth considering from that perspective.

Tara: Hi.

Jack: Hi.

Tara: How’s harrison?

Kyle: Good. He’s napping upstairs.

Tara: What did you need to talk to me about?

Kyle: We wanted to make sure you’re okay. We got a strange message from phyllis.

Tara: [ Sighs ] I’m not surprised. Did you she tell you that she’s been spying on me?

Jack: No, we deduced that on our own, and for the record, we are not okay with that.

Kyle: But I want to know what’s happening ’cause you said that you needed some time for yourself, and then you went to the grand phoenix with sally.

Tara: I told you that because I didn’t want you involved.

Jack: Actually, that’s what we’re trying to clear up. Involved in what, exactly?

Tara: Uh, I got this text. It was troubling. Kyle may have noticed.

Kyle: I did. I remember you seemed bothered by it.

Tara: Yeah, it was from sally, I thought. But it didn’t make any sense and I was confused, so I went to ask her about it.

Jack: And what did the text say?

Tara: I don’t remember exactly, and I deleted it, but it was something like, “phyllis is a problem.”

Jack: What could that have meant?

Tara: Like I said, it was confusing. But sally put it together that phyllis sent it to me from sally’s phone. I mean [Chuckles] It’s childish and ridiculous and such a waste of time. And now she’s roping you into this mess? I mean, what exactly did she say?

Kyle: Not much, but she did send this video. You seem pretty upset with sally. What was that all about? Discomfort back there?

Tara: I can’t believe this. I mean, I’d heard that phyllis had been watching us, but to not only admit it but to send you this footage, I mean, that’s creepy. Is she obsessed? I mean, what could she hope to prove by this video?

Jack: We were hoping that maybe you could tell us.

Tara: All I know is that i was right not to trust her offer of friendship.

Jack: We have not spoken to phyllis since she sent this video. We’re just trying to figure things out. Maybe you could explain what’s happening in that video.

Kyle: Like when you showed sally your phone. What did you want her to see?

Tara: The text I received, and then she showed me hers to prove that she didn’t send it. I mean, honestly, I wasn’t sure what to believe, and I flew off the handle a bit. I’m kind of embarrassed.

Jack: There is no need to be embarrassed.

Tara: It’s just that sally’s constantly complaining about phyllis, and it felt like, in the moment, she was trying to enlist my help in her pointless feud. It was all just too much, and i reacted emotionally. You know the kind of strain I’ve been under, trying to start a new life and expand my business and dealing with ashland’s lashing out at me.

Jack: We both know how persistent phyllis can be, particularly when she thinks she’s protecting her daughter.

Tara: I didn’t do anything to summer. I don’t know where this is coming from. Jack, I know that I told you i didn’t need any help dealing with her, but maybe I was wrong. I mean, I have faced down some vicious women in my time, but this goes beyond anything I’ve ever encountered.

Jack: Look, I’ve already spoken to phyllis — in general terms, I never mentioned your name. I told her to ease off on everyone, that we all have our own issues that we have to deal with.

Tara: I don’t think she took your message to heart.

Kyle: And I talked to her this morning. I got the indication that she’s mad that you’re here and summer isn’T. I told her there was no sense in blaming you for summer leaving.

Tara: Well, it sounds like phyllis won’t stop until she’s run harrison and me out of town.

Jack: You know what? I’m gonna deal with this right now.

Ashland: Well, I’m certain that you would handle a sensitive situation with grace and poise, but tara, on the other hand, is only using our son to punish me.

Victoria: Well, I don’t disagree, but, I mean, maybe you could get her to come around by trying a different approach. Find a compromise. You are a world-class negotiator, so negotiate. It would be what’s best for harrison.

Ashland: Why are you so good at this? Getting through to me and changing my perspective?

Victoria: It’s simple. I just respect you enough to tell you the unvarnished, whether you want to hear it or not.

Ashland: Well, that’s refreshing. There was far too much varnish in my marriage.

Victoria: On both sides, no doubt.

Ashland: No doubt. God, I wish I’d met you years ago.

Victoria: You know, I’ve had the same thought. But who knows if the younger versions of ourselves would’ve hit it off or appreciated each other for the right reasons?

Ashland: I can’t imagine any version of myself not falling head over heels for you.

Victoria: Head over heels? That sounds like you’re saying —

Ashland: Something i should’ve said a lot sooner. You just forget all that garbage I said about not letting things go too far between us emotionally. That wasn’t to protect you. It was about protecting myself. I didn’t want to be reminded of how little time I have left or what I’m gonna miss out on. None of that seems to matter now.

Victoria: No, it doesn’T. It just means that we don’t have any time to waste. We have to take advantage of every moment that we have together.

The more we get together

Devon: [ Exhales sharply ] Hey. Why’d you get out of bed? I was gonna bring you a snack since I promised you dinner and we never made it.

Amanda: Yeah, well, that is my own fault. I let myself get distracted.

Devon: It’s the shirt’s fault, actually. Blame it. ‘Cause now that it’s on you and I see it, it is a really nice shirt.

[ Both chuckle ]

Amanda: We can’t let this expensive wine go to waste.

Devon: Oh, we sure can’T. And I noticed that you didn’t hold back when I told you to open something good.

Amanda: You said we were celebrating. Not that I want to talk about the case.

Devon: Well, listen, if it’s on your mind and you do want to talk about it, I’m open for it.

Amanda: [ Sighs ] It is on my mind, despite your best efforts.

[ Chuckles ]

Devon: I understand. I understand. I don’t know how it couldn’t be. It’s — it’s a very big deal to find out who you are and where you came from and how different your life could’ve been.

Amanda: Yeah. I can’t stop thinking about if richard had lived, you know, and he found me and hilary. We could’ve grown up here in genoa city together. He had a good, stable job. I could’ve had a normal middle-class upbringing. And I would’ve grown up to be a completely different person — you know, driven, just not so focused on trying to prove myself.

Devon: Could’ve gone the other direction, too.

Amanda: Yeah, I guess you’re right. Maybe if my father did raise me on his own, I would’ve felt a little more stung when my mother rejected me.

Devon: I was thinking more that if richard had survived, he’d have been able to convince naya to be more involved in her daughters’ lives.

Amanda: I doubt that. Sutton would not have liked that. And the one thing that I’ve learned about naya — she is never gonna stand up to her father.

Tara: I’m relieved that harrison doesn’t seem to be affected by all this stress and suspicion surrounding you and me.

Kyle: Yeah, he’s just a kid playing with his toys, watching his cartoons, impervious to what’s happening. I envy him.

Tara: Well, our toddler seems to be more mature than some of the adults I’ve been dealing with lately.

Kyle: That’s true.

Tara: At least ashland’s illness gives him an excuse for his behavior. Phyllis just seems to like stirring things up wherever she can.

Kyle: It’s more complicated than that. Like my dad, she’s protective, sometimes overly so, of her daughter. I’ve been on her list more than once. It’s not a fun place to be, but in phyllis’ eyes, anything she does for summer’s sake is justified.

Tara: Well, that I get. I mean, there’s nothing i wouldn’t do for our son.

Kyle: Really?

[ Knock on door ]

Tara: [ Sighs ] It’s ashland. What now?

Jack: I got a bone to pick with you. What exactly are you playing at?

Phyllis: I was expecting you. What took you so long? What did tara have to tell you?

Jack: Tara has grown weary of your constant antagonism. Frankly, so have I.

Phyllis: Well, I don’t know what you’re talking about because I’m just seeing a bunch of red flags, and I’m just gathering the data, that’s all. And by the way, when I’m truly antagonistic, tara will know.

Jack: Oh, you’re doing a lot more than gathering information. Did you really steal sally’s phone to send a fake text?

Phyllis: Oh, please, don’t get all bent out of shape on that. Those two little scammers are reacting to every little bit of scrutiny. How come you’re not asking for an explanation from them? How come you’re not interrogating them?

Jack: I got an explanation. Phyllis, you need to back off of tara. I don’t blame her for being put out by all your attacks.

Phyllis: Ohh. Poor, innocent tara. Poor girl. Ask yourself this — why, when she got the text, did she run over here immediately? Why was she arguing with sally in my elevator?

Jack: Why don’t you tell me?

Phyllis: I will tell you — because she’s afraid of getting caught. That’s why. I mean, she’s living large at the abbott mansion, isn’t she? She has new business opportunities, new friends — all because of you and kyle. She doesn’t want to lose that.

Jack: And why would she? And don’t give me insinuation, give me hard facts — real proof.

Phyllis: Well, I can run an investigation until I have proof? That’s not how it works. And by the way, you are turning a blind eye to everything that’s in front of you.

[ Sighs ] Because you want to believe everything that sally and tara are telling you.

Jack: Oh, and what is that?

Phyllis: That I’m wrong. That i am just angry because my daughter left town. I’m the scapegoat here. I swear, those two — those two little girls ran my daughter out of town, and I will get the proof. Believe me, I will get the proof. Why do I not get the benefit of the doubt from you? Why does my daughter not get it? What about your son? Why?

[ Sighs ] Have you even talked to sally about the —

Jack: I was on my way to do that right now.

Phyllis: Okay, well, go do that. Go do that, and don’t let her talk her way out of this.

Jack: I know what you’re suggesting. I resent the insinuation.

Phyllis: Resent it all you want. I brought in ensure max protein,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Ashland: I’m leaving tonight. I thought you might like to know.

Tara: Where are you going?

Ashland: Victoria and I are headed to new york to meet with the locke communication group executive team.

Kyle: Preparing for the merger?

Ashland: Something like that. I’d like to say goodbye to harrison before I leave.

Tara: I think that would be alright, as long as you don’t mention anything else, like the diagnosis. We still need to discuss how we’re gonna handle that.

Ashland: Well, I’d be willing to revisit that now — privately.

Kyle: I’ll have my phone on me. Call me if you need me.

Tara: I’ll be fine. You seem to have cooled off since last we spoke.

Ashland: Well, I’ve spent some time reflecting and discussing the situation with victoria. She’s helping me see it from a mother’s perspective.

Tara: I hope that means that you’re willing to break the news together.

Ashland: I’d like to explain it to him myself, but I have no objection to you being present. It may help him. He could use his mother’s support, no doubt.

Tara: I can agree to that.

Ashland: There’s something else I wanted to let you know about I’m going to start treatment for my cancer after all. The odds of success are not good, but I’m not willing to surrender, so I’m gonna fight this.

Tara: I’m glad. That’ll give us some hope, and i think that will be especially important for harrison to hear about.

Ashland: I agree. So maybe it was best that we waited till now to tell him. But I really don’t want to postpone it any longer, so can we do this now?

Tara: Okay. I’ll go get him.

Devon: I can only imagine how difficult it was growing up for naya to have a father that’s that manipulative, you know? ‘Cause it’s clearly messed with her head if she’s willing to sacrifice herself by going to damn prison just to protect him.

Amanda: I do think that i could change her attitude on that. But I am not hopeful — you know, her “protect daddy” instinct is pretty ingrained.

Devon: Yeah. You have to give it to her, though. I mean, that’s — from when you first met her, she’s come a long way. She denied that you were even her daughter.

Amanda: She was looking at me the way that sutton does, like a problem, a shameful mistake from the past.

Devon: Yeah, I don’t know about that, though. I don’t know. I think that knowing what we know now, I think naya knows that there’s something wrong with sutton, and she may have been afraid that if she brought you close to the family, you’d see him for who he really was and you’d expose him.

Amanda: Yeah, and that’s exactly what happened.

Devon: I know it is, and that’s my point is that she still made the decision to bring you into the family, and I mean, she — she put you on his legal team.

Amanda: What are you saying? That you think, on some level, naya wanted the truth to come out?

Devon: I don’t know. I don’t know if I’d go that far. I know that she had plenty of opportunities to push you out of their lives for good. She knew what was at stake if she didn’T. She didn’t go that route. She hung on to you. She hung on to her daughter. Which makes me believe that you guys’ relationship, it can heal.

Sally: So, I assume you’re here to discuss what happened. So my only question is, did you hear about it from tara or phyllis?

Jack: I spoke to both of them. Now I want your explanation, and please, please be straight with me.

Sally: I mean, I think it’s pretty obvious what’s going on here. Phyllis has it out for me. She’s trying to turn everyone against me, and not just you, but tara, too, and I have to work with her. I don’t want this to affect my career. Isn’t there anything that you can do to get her to back off?

Jack: I made my feelings quite clear to phyllis. That is not why I’m here. I want you to tell me what you and tara were talking about in the elevator.

Sally: Tara received a text message from my phone, sent by phyllis, and she confronted me and told me that she didn’t want any part of this drama, and i don’t blame her. I don’t want any part of it either, but phyllis is not giving me a choice. I mean, stealing my phone and impersonating me via text? Who does that?

Jack: What did the text say?

Sally: I don’t know. I don’t know, I never saw it. But it was clearly something about phyllis, and that was enough —

Jack: You never saw it?

Sally: Phyllis deleted it from my phone before sneaking it back to me. She is out of control, jack, and I haven’t even mentioned the spying.

Jack: Phyllis sent me the security video from the elevator.

Sally: Oh, my god, that’s so gross.

Jack: Look for yourself. She is clearly showing you the text.

Sally: Okay. Well, I did see it, but it was quick. I just saw that it was from my phone. I didn’t actually read the words. Jack, does it really matter?

Jack: Yes, it matters! It matters that I can’t trust you to tell me the truth. Sally: Jack, please don’t overreact to something so small. If you let phyllis raise these doubts about me, you’re just playing into her hand.

Jack: All I asked for was a simple explanation. You couldn’t give me that.

Sally: I told you the truth. If I can’t recall the exact wording of the text message, it’s because it didn’t matter. What should shock you is that phyllis stole my phone and sent a text in the first place. Your good friend keeps trying to undermine me professionally and personally. You’re okay with that?

Jack: Sally, you’re not helping your case with all these efforts to redirect my attention to phyllis and away from the question at hand.

Sally: Jack —

Jack: It only makes me question what else you’re concealing.

Sally: I’m not hiding anything.

Jack: Oh, god, I actually believe that. At this point, I honestly think it’s instinct on your part to deflect blame. And I can understand that, but I — what I can’t do is build a relationship with someone i can’t completely trust. Look, as much as I’ve enjoyed our time together, I —

Sally: No, jack, just please don’t finish that thought. Okay, let’s just take a step back. We’ll put all this aside and we will go to dinner as we planned. We can get past this. We are so good together.

Jack: I thought so, too. But, you know, as compatible as we are, I can’t shake the feeling we’re always gonna end up right here. You making excuses, me questioning my judgment. I need a lot more than that.

Sally: [ Exhales sharply ]

Ashland: [ Laughs ] There’s my boy! Come over here!

[ Laughs ] You almost fell. Oh, it’s good to see you, buddy boy. Good to see you. Come have a seat. Come have a seat. I just wanted to stop by because I’m taking a trip to new york, and I wanted to see you and tell you a few things. You know, I haven’t been feeling well lately. And in fact, I’ve been feeling kind of yucky.

Harrison: Your heart?

Ashland: [ Chuckles ] No. They fixed my heart a little while ago, but I should know that my smart boy would remember that. This is something different. The doctors fixed the heart, and I’m hoping that they can fix this problem, too.

Tara: They have some of the best doctors in the work in new york.

Ashland: They sure do. And I’m hoping that they can give me some special medicine so that I don’t feel yucky anymore and that I can go hunt frogs and maybe go to a baseball game with my favorite little boy. Who would be…who?

Harrison: Me!

Ashland: That’s right. That is right! ‘Cause I want to spend as much time with you as I can.

Kyle: Hey, victoria. Heard you were going to new york tonight.

Victoria: Hi. Yes, I am. I take it you were at the house when ashland came over to talk to harrison?

Kyle: I just left to give them some privacy. I hope I didn’t make a mistake leaving them alone. Things got pretty volatile the last time they spoke.

Victoria: He’ll be fine. He just didn’t want to leave until the two of them were on better terms.

Kyle: That’d be a nice change in attitude. I guess you get some of the credit for that.

Victoria: Well, we all just want what’s best for that little boy.

Kyle: Tara and I were just saying the same thing. So how much has ashland told you about her?

Victoria: Not a lot. But I know how hurt he was when he found out that harrison was not his biological son.

Kyle: Yeah, she didn’t even tell me she was pregnant. I had no clue ashland was raising my son as his own for years.

Victoria: Well, I guess there’s something that we both know about tara — she’s very good at keeping secrets. I’m sorry, are the two of you rekindling things?

Kyle: No. We’re just living in the same house, co-parenting, so we’re spending a lot of time together, that’s all.

Victoria: Okay, well, be careful. Psoriatic arthritis, made my joints stiff,

Phyllis: Hey, how’d it go?

Jack: None of your business.

Phyllis: That bad, huh?

Jack: You know, I don’t know what’s going on here. I don’t know who’s telling the truth. But one area I agree with sally — you’re enjoying this, aren’t you?

Phyllis: No, I am not. I am not enjoying this at all. I know you like her. I wish I was wrong about sally and tara, but I don’t think i am. Do you?

Jack: All I know is that you will never change.

Phyllis: You say that like it’s a bad thing.

Amanda: Mmm! Cheese, crackers, and ice cream. You really know how to show a girl a good time, huh?

Devon: Well, you can always count on me when you need a good distraction.

Amanda: Yeah, from my ultra-dysfunctional family — my grandfather, the criminal, my mother, who idolizes him, and my father and sister who I will never get a chance to meet.

Devon: Don’t forget about imani. That started off a little rocky, but she’s coming around. I think there’s some real potential with that relationship.

Amanda: You’re always so positive. You always see the good in everything.

Devon: I try to.

Amanda: You know, even when i wanted to walk away from this case, you were just always there encouraging me, making me believe that I could get through it.

Devon: And I was right, too, because you did.

Amanda: Well, thank you for believing in me.

Devon: You never have to thank me for believing in you, amanda. It’s very easy to do when you love somebody. You know I do, right? I love you.

Amanda: I love you, too.

Ashland: Victoria, are you here?

Victoria: In here.

Ashland: Ah.

Victoria: I didn’t expect you back so soon.

Ashland: Here I am. Is this everything?

Victoria: Yes.

Ashland: Are you all set?

Victoria: I’m all set. Here, let me help you with that.

Ashland: No, no, no, I’ve got it. I’m good. I’m great, in fact.

Victoria: Oh, well, then i guess things went really well with harrison.

Ashland: They did. I will fill you in on the way to the airport.

Victoria: I’m so happy for both of you. I ran into kyle earlier at the coffee house, and he told me that he left you and tara alone to talk to him.

Ashland: Yes, he gave us some privacy, which was good of him, and surprising because he’s usually hovering around tara. She’s got him wrapped around her little finger.

Victoria: I’m not so sure about that.

Sally: I thought I was safe to say that I hadn’t seen the text message. I didn’t know phyllis gave the video to him of you showing it to me. God, that bitch.

Tara: Sally, you have got to calm down.

Sally: No, she’s out to ruin my life. I’m losing jack over this.

Tara: I’m sorry that jack is upset, but you got to give it time. Let things calm down.

Sally: I think it’s just too late for that. I mean, I’ve run out of chances with him. And honestly, given how he was acting, I think you’re on thin ice, too.

Tara: Actually, I think everything on my end is fine. I mean, we both gave the same explanation for the elevator conversation. You handled it the best way you could. Thanks for the update.

Steffy: I am so grateful for what lies ahead.

Finn: Oh, me too.

Steffy: So let’s do this. Let’s get married.

Ridge: Well, dad, you’re at the top of your game.

Brooke: Eric, it’s so spectacular. I love the way it drapes so beautifully across the shoulders.

Eric: Thank you. I’m glad you approve. How does it feel?

Sequoia: Like butter.

Eric: Like butter, see? That’s exactly what I had in mind. Thank you, sequoia. Thanks for coming in today.

Ridge: Oh, dad, you seem inspired.

Eric: Yes, well, since my marriage ended, I’ve… I feel like recommitting to my arts.

Brooke: I can see that. Eric, you seem so free now that you’ve said goodbye to quinn.

Quinn: Well, it was A… little more strongly-worded than “goodbye,” but… you did seem at peace.

Brooke: [ Sighing ] Quinn, what are you doing here?

Quinn: It’s good to see you, eric.

Brooke: You know you’re not allowed in the building. You have very strict orders to stay away–come on, eric, tell her.

Eric: You know you shouldn’t be here. You agreed to work remotely.

Quinn: I know. I know, but apparently, my badge still works, and, well, I wanted to deliver my latest designs to you in person.

Brooke: You know that eric doesn’t want you here. And yet here you are.

Quinn: Eric, can I speak to you alone? I’d rather not stand here being demonized by brooke.

Brooke: No, you absolutely may not.

Ridge: I think you should leave.

Quinn: Eric?

Brooke: I’m calling security.

Eric: Give us a few moments.

Brooke: Eric, don’t let her do this, she’s trying to get under your skin.

Eric: I can handle it, brooke. It’ll be all right.

Brooke: I really hope this is the last time that we have to put up with you. Can’t wait till you’re out of eric’s life for good.

Ridge: Okay. We’ll be right next door if you need us.

Brooke: Yeah.

Eric: What is this? Is this another apology?

Quinn: No. It’s not. That’s not why I’m here.

Eric: So why are you here? What do you want, quinn? I brought in ensure max protein,

Brooke: We have to do everything we can to stop quinn from working her way back into eric’s life.

Carter: I’m sorry, I thought the office was empty.

Ridge: No worries, brooke and I are just here temporarily, come on in.

Brooke: [ Sighing] Hopefully not for much longer.

Ridge: The big office is taken. By eric and an uninvited guest.

Brooke: Quinn.

Carter: Wait, quinn? I thought she was not allowed. Did eric ask to see her?

Brooke: No, of course not. She just waltzed her way into the building.

Carter: I can’t imagine that went well.

Brooke: [ Laughing] She’s so predictable. And eric is so polite. I would’ve kicked her out by now.

Carter: What, he didn’t?

Ridge: He didn’T.

Brooke: Eric is alone with quinn right now.

Eric: Now that you’re here, we can talk about the divorce.

Quinn: Do we have to?

Eric: Is this about your designs? I’m sure they’re wonderful as always.

Quinn: Thank you. I appreciate that. I really do. And I want to continue challenging myself with my work. Remotely, of course.

Eric: The only way you can work at forrester.

Quinn: I know. I’m actually enjoying my new setup.

Eric: Well, I’ve yet to hear from your attorney.

Quinn: Well, you’ll be waiting a long time because I haven’t hired one.

Eric: You haven’t hired a lawyer?

Quinn: No. Whatever the settlement is, I’ll take it.

Eric: Surprised to hear that.

Quinn: I’ve never wanted your money, eric. I was a single working mother for years, I’ve been successful on my own. I can take care of myself.

Eric: I’ve never doubted that.

Quinn: And I’ve never doubted your sense of fairness. I’ve really appreciated your generosity over the years. It was your inability to defend me… that became a point of contention and concern for me. In every situation, you sided with brooke and your family over me.

Steffy: Look at you. You’re everything I hoped for and more.

Finn: Now you’re giving me a lot to live up to.

Steffy: Well, when I’m right, I’m right.

Finn: Mm, I have a feeling that you’re going to be telling me that a lot over the next few decades.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s correct.

Finn: Honey, you’ve given me so much. The most incredible gift, our son, our sweet hayes. And now we’re about to get married.

Steffy: Mm-hmm. It’s gonna be so special. Celebrating our commitment to each other in front of our friends and our family. Actually, we should start planning, what are we gonna do? Are we gonna get a dj or a band, like… honestly, I don’t–I don’t care where or how we do it. I just want our family to be there. And our little hayes gets to know his other grandparents. And I get to meet your parents.

Finn: [ Chuckling ]


Brooke: It’s obvious why quinn is here. She’s trying to play on eric’s big forgiving heart.

Ridge: I think she has realized by now that ship has sailed.

Brooke: You really need to push this divorce forward. The less time she has to influence him, the better. I’m not making you uncomfortable, am I, carter?

Ridge: Brooke. Why would you think that? Talking about an affair he had with the boss’s wife? The biggest mistake he’s ever made–why do you think it would make him feel uncomfortable? It doesn’t, does it?

Finn: A little bit.

Ridge: Of course it does. Give him a break. He put a stop to it.

Brooke: Well, thank god. You’re saving yourself a lot of heartache, trust me. I realize that was the agreement you had with eric, but… I’m glad that you came to your senses, and you ended it with her. You told her you wanted nothing to do with her. I just hope that’s what eric is doing right now.

Quinn: I apologized to you over and over again. I begged and pleaded for your forgiveness, but you… you refused to forgive me.

Eric: I did. Not this time, quinn, not this time.

Quinn: I’m not justifying my actions.

Eric: You can’T. There’s no excuse for turning to another man.

Quinn: Well, if only you could’ve met me halfway. I tried so hard to get close to you again, to be… intimate with you. But you just… you just kept shutting me down. You couldn’t get over it. My role in… ridge and shauna’s wedding. You hated the fact that I went against your… your precious brooke. A woman who has been campaigning for my removal since day one.

Eric: I hated that you betrayed ridge. And I hated that you betrayed me.

Quinn: I took responsibility for my actions. And I tried… to win back your faith in me. I tried and I tried, but you… you were having none of it. And then you gave brooke carte blanche to vilify me day after day after day. I’m your wife. Why is it… that you couldn’t excuse me when you have absolved so many others over the years? Thomas… shauna… brooke, I don’t even know how many times, all your ex-wives. Everyone but me. Why is that, eric? Why couldn’t you find it in your heart… to forgive me?

Finn: When you say you don’t wanna put this off, you mean it.

Steffy: Has the grin on my face convinced you yet?

Finn: [ Chuckling ] It’s a pretty adorable grin.

Steffy: We got a good thing. When I think about all this, it really makes me emotional, you know? Because we’re doing this together. Blending our families. You know what we need to do? We really need to pick a date so everyone’s there.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: Where are your parents living? Like, are they in california? You haven’t really told me, and I didn’t wanna pry because you didn’t say anything, but I’m really excited to meet your parents.

Finn: Yeah, no, and I… I know they’re gonna love you just as much as I do. But, uh, I mean, do we have to schedule and… make plans right now? I just wanna enjoy you. You know? And… savor this moment with my soon-to-be wife.

Steffy: Take advantage. Baby’s sleeping.

Finn: You read my mind.

Steffy: Mm-hmm.

Finn: How is it possible? I think you’ve gotten more beautiful… and sexy… since you begged me to marry you.

Steffy: [ Laughing] I did not.

Finn: Yeah. Most bladder leak pads were similar.

Ridge: Well, we’re talking your ear off. Why don’t you get some work done?

Brooke: Yeah, we know you’re busy, carter, but really, we hope you find time in your very-busy schedule to push this divorce forward. And the sooner the better.

Carter: Is it love? Is it lust?

Quinn: I think it’s just us. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Eric: I did forgive you, quinn. I was in our home ready to renew our vows when I found out that you and carter were… having an affair.

Quinn: You’re right. I made a mistake. But I refuse to be defined by that mistake. I turned to carter for a reason.

Eric: So you’ve said.

Quinn: Eric, when two people make vows to each other… sometimes… they’re going to face… certain obstacles in that relationship. And they have to be there for each other, they have to attend to each other’s needs. Mine included. I know I hurt you, eric, but I’m done apologizing. Because you took brooke’s word over everyone’S. Including mine. I made a mistake. A big mistake. But you should’ve defended me. And you didn’T. Like earlier. Brooke was standing here, talking down to me, and you did nothing. You said nothing. Like you always have.

Eric: I defended you to everyone I knew in my life. I stood up for you from the very beginning.

Quinn: When? Huh? Where was I when this happened? Because I didn’t feel protected. I didn’t feel particularly cared for. I promise you, there is nothing worse than living with someone who gives you the cold shoulder. Being stuck in a marriage that’s lacking warmth and intimacy. I own my mistakes, eric. But in the end, I’m walking away from this marriage knowing I gave it everything I had. You know, I… I tried. Tried to conform to being the matriarch. The… ohh, the upstanding member of the forrester family, but you know what? Hey… hah, maybe I’m just not cut out… for being queen and having my portrait hanging above the fireplace. But that’s okay. Because I need to be true to myself. And for the first time in a long time, that’s exactly what I’m doing. And I’m proud of the woman I’m becoming.

Finn: Hayes is still sleeping?

Steffy: Amelia’s out with kelly.

Finn: Let’s go to the bedroom–

Steffy: No-no-no, no-no-no, hayes is sleeping in there. He’s still sleeping in there.

Finn: Oh, that’s right, I don’t wanna scar him for life.

Steffy: It could be here.

Finn: Your parents could walk through that door any minute.

Steffy: Oh, yeah, she could. Okay. Maybe it’s not the right time.

Finn: Okay… all right. We’re just gonna wait.

Steffy: Mm-hmm, yeah. Can you?

[ Both laughing ]

Finn: After several cold showers.

[ Both laughing ]

Steffy: Oh, I can’t get enough of you.

Finn: Believe me. Look at you, this is taking… all my self-control.

[ Both laughing ]

Steffy: We do have the rest of our lives.

[ Both sighing ]

Finn: That’s true.

Steffy: Uh-huh.

Finn: Yes. We… we’re tough, we can–

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: We can survive–

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: –A couple hours.

Steffy: Yeah, a couple hours. Okay, we should start planning for the wedding? Okay, what do we want? We want… gotta figure out the grooms. Where’s my pen? Brides–bridesmaids. We gotta figure it all– we have to figure it out.

Finn: Look, I know how important it is for you to do this right.

Steffy: Yeah, I want to. It’s–it’s our wedding. I want it to be perfect.

Finn: All I wanna do is marry you. All right? And give you everything that you want, but, you know, weddings, they just–they take time. There’s all that planning, and you pick a color scheme.

Steffy: Uh-huh?

Finn: You’ve always been a free spirit. Rule-breaker.

Steffy: [ Laughing ]

Finn: Let’s just break the rules. You know… not do a traditional thing. We’ll do the… the unexpected.

Steffy: Are you trying to get a quickie wedding again?

Finn: Yeah, why not?

Steffy: Baby… I adore your enthusiasm, but… I want my family there. And I want the opportunity to meet yours. I want to meet your parents. They made you who you are. I can’t wait to meet your mom and dad.

Y&R Update Thursday, July 29 2021

Young & The Restless Update

Y&R logo

Recap written by Christine

While Kyle waited for Tara to come home, he and Jack speculated about the video of the argument between Tara and Sally. Kyle wondered if Tara found out Sally was responsible for Summer leaving town. Jack didn’t think that was the case. Kyle thought it’d explain why Tara was so upset in the elevator – Phyllis had blamed her for Summer leaving. Jack clarified that Phyllis’s theory was that Tara and Sally were working together. He was sure Phyllis saw that video as proof. Kyle was sure they’d get to the bottom of it when Tara got home. He figured there would be a simple explanation.

At the hotel, Phyllis accused Sally and Tara of having something to do with Summer leaving town. Sally said that Summer was having the time of her life, so if Sally did have something to do with it, which she didn’t, Phyllis should be thanking her, not sending text messages from her phone. Phyllis continued to deny having anything to do with the text message. Phyllis asked why she’d do something like that, unless she wanted the person who received the text to freak out and rush over here to confront Sally. Sally said that if that was Phyllis’s plan, it obviously didn’t work, because no one freaked out. Phyllis revealed that she knew Sally and Tara argued in the elevator. Sally realized there were security cameras in the elevator, and she accused Phyllis of spying, but Phyllis said as the proprietor, she needed to know what was going on at all times. Sally couldn’t believe Phyllis would go to those extremes, and Phyllis replied that the cameras weren’t hidden. Sally argued that Phyllis was snooping on a private conversation, but Phyllis said it was an elevator, not a confessional. Tara came downstairs, and Sally brought her up to speed on Phyllis’s scheme. Tara said she was dealing with a lot, and she didn’t need to get caught up in Sally’s drama. She left. Phyllis asked Sally how it felt to get thrown under the bus.

At the Abbott house, Kyle told Tara that he and Jack got a strange message from Phyllis. She asked if Phyllis mentioned she’d been spying on her. Jack said they deduced that on their own, and they weren’t okay with it. Kyle wondered why she went to see Sally after she said she was going to have some time alone. Tara said she didn’t want to involve Kyle. Tara said she got a troubling text that she thought was from Sally. She spun a false tale about not remembering exactly what it said, but it had said something about Phyllis being a problem. She said Sally realized Phyllis sent it from her phone, it was childish and ridiculous. Tara asked what Phyllis said. Kyle showed her the video and noted that she seemed pretty upset with Sally.

Tara was shocked Phyllis recorded them and sent it to Kyle and Jack. She asked if Phyllis was obsessed. Jack and Kyle asked Tara to explain what happened – why did she show Sally her phone. Tara said she was showing Sally the text she received, and Sally showed her that she didn’t send it. Tara said she hadn’t been sure what to believe in the elevator, and she’d flown off the handle on Sally, which she was embarrassed about. Jack said there was no need for her to feel embarrassed. She said Sally was constantly complaining about Phyllis, and in the moment, she felt like Sally was trying to enlist her in the pointless feud. Tara moaned about all the strain she’d been under lately. Jack said he and Kyle both knew how persistent Phyllis could be, particularly when she thought she was protecting her daughter. Tara said she didn’t do anything to Summer. Tara recalled previously saying she didn’t need Jack’s help with Phyllis, but she might be wrong – she’d never dealt with someone as vicious as Phyllis. Jack said he’d already spoken to Phyllis in general terms and told her to back off everyone. Kyle said he talked to Phyllis this morning and told her not to blame Tara for Summer leaving. Tara felt like Phyllis wouldn’t stop until she’d run her and Harrison out of town. Jack vowed to deal with this right now. He left.

Tara and Kyle came downstairs after visiting Harrison. Tara said their toddler seemed more mature than some of the adults they’d dealt with lately. She said at least Ashland’s illness gave him an excuse, Phyllis just seemed to like causing drama. Kyle said it was more complicated – Phyllis was protective of her daughter. Kyle had been on her list more than once. Tara understood protecting your kid – there was nothing she wouldn’t do for Harrison.

Jack confronted Phyllis. She asked what Tara had to say. He said he and Tara were weary of her constant antagonism. She said she was just gathering information, and when she was truly antagonistic, Tara would know. He asked if she really stole Sally’s phone. She thought he should be interrogating those two little scammers. He told her to back off Tara; he didn’t blame Tara for being put out by Phyllis’s attacks. She mockingly said something about poor innocent Tara. She asked why Tara ran over to the hotel and argued with Sally after she got the text. He challenged Phyllis to explain it. Phyllis thought Tara was afraid of getting caught and losing her cushy life at the Abbott mansion. He wanted hard proof of Phyllis’s claims. She said he was turning a blind eye to everything in front of him because he wanted to believe Sally and Tara. Phyllis cried that she was being scapegoated. She vowed to prove Tara and Sally ran her daughter out of town. She asked why he didn’t give her and Summer the benefit of the doubt. She asked if he’d talked to Sally. He planned to. She said to go do that and not to let Sally talk her way out of it. He resented the insinuation. She told him to resent it all he wanted. He stormed over to the elevator.

Jack went upstairs, and he told Sally he wanted the truth. Her only question was whether he heard about it from Tara or Phyllis. He said he spoke to both of them, and he wanted to hear from Sally. He plead with her to be straight with him. She contended that Phyllis wanted to turn everyone against her, including Tara, whom Sally had to work with. She didn’t want this to affect her career, and she asked if he could get Phyllis to back off. He’d already made his feelings to Phyllis clear. He asked what she and Tara discussed in the elevator. She gave him the basics about Phyllis texting Tara using Sally’s phone. She said that Tara told her she didn’t want to be part of the drama. Sally didn’t want to either, but Phyllis wasn’t giving her a choice. He asked what the text said. Sally said she never saw it, because Phyllis deleted it from her phone. Jack showed Sally the video and pointed out that Tara was clearly showing Sally the text. Sally shifted the story and said she saw it, but she didn’t read it. She asked it really mattered. He snapped that it did matter, because he couldn’t trust her to tell him the truth. She begged him not to overreact over something so small and play into Phyllis’s hand. He said she couldn’t provide him with an explanation. She maintained that she told him the truth, and she didn’t remember the exact wording of the text because it didn’t matter. She thought what should shock him was that Phyllis stole her phone and was trying to undermine her professionally and personally. Jack told Sally that her efforts to redirect his attention toward Phyllis and away from the topic at hand weren’t helping her case. It only made him more suspicious of what else she was hiding. She swore she wasn’t hiding something “Oh God, I actually believe that,” he said. “At this point I honestly think it’s instinct on your part to deflect blame. And I can understand that, but I – what I can’t do is build a relationship with someone I can’t completely trust,” he said. As he continued his speech breaking things off, she begged him to take a step back, put this aside and go to dinner like they’d planned. She was adamant that they could get past this – they were so good together. He’d thought so too, but as compatible as they were, he couldn’t shake the feeling that they’d keep ending up here, with her making excuses and him questioning his judgment. He needed a lot more than that. He left.

Jack went downstairs, and Phyllis asked how it went. He snapped that it was none of her business. “That bad, huh?” she replied. He didn’t know what was going on or who was telling the truth, but he agreed with Sally in one area – Phyllis was enjoying this. She said she wasn’t enjoying it. She knew he liked Sally, and she wished she was wrong about Sally and Tara, but she didn’t think she was. She asked if he did. All he knew was Phyllis would never change. She didn’t think that was a bad thing. He left.

Devon came home and saw Amanda lounging in the living room. She hoped he didn’t mind Moses letting her in. He’d gone to see Nate. Devon told Amanda that he would make her a key. She asked if he was sure he was ready to level up like that. He said he was just throwing around the idea. She asked about Abby and Mariah. He said he’d fill her in over dinner. He knew she was seeing Phyllis later, so they could eat early. He had to go upstairs and change, and he told her to open some wine because they were celebrating. She asked what about. He said Sutton was going to pay, and it was because of her. She appreciated his confidence in her, but it wasn’t a slam dunk. She wanted to just focus on him and her today and not the case. He was fine with that. He came downstairs in a suit, and she appreciated what she saw. She told him if he really wanted to dinner, he wouldn’t have come downstairs looking so good. She said she’d help him out of that shirt, and he realized they weren’t going to make it to dinner.

Devon was downstairs making a snack to bring Amanda in bed, but she came downstairs in the shirt he’d been wearing earlier. They had wine, and she admitted the case was still on her mind, despite his best efforts. He understood. She couldn’t stop thinking about how things would’ve been if Richard had lived. He could’ve given the twins a normal middle class upbringing, and she would’ve grown up to be a completely different person. She would’ve been driven, but not so focused on trying to prove herself. Devon said maybe if Richard survived, he could’ve convinced Naya to be involved in their daughter’s lives. Amanda doubted that, because she didn’t think Naya would ever stand up to Sutton.

Devon couldn’t imagine growing up with a manipulative father like Sutton. He thought it had clearly messed with Naya’s head, since she was willing to sacrifice herself to protect him. Amanda was going to try and get through to Naya, but she wasn’t hopeful. Devon credited Naya with coming a long way since the time she denied that Amanda was her daughter. Amanda said that when they first met, Naya looked at her the way Sutton still did – like a problem, a mistake from the past. Devon wasn’t sure about that. “I think Naya knows that there’s something wrong with Sutton, and she may have been afraid that if she brought you close the family you’d see him for who he really was and you’d expose him,” he said. Amanda said that was exactly what happened. That was Devon’s point – Naya still made the decision to bring Amanda into the family, and she put her on his legal team. Amanda asked if Devon was saying, on some level, Naya wanted the truth to come out. Devon wasn’t sure he’d go that far, but he said Naya had plenty of opportunities to cut Amanda out for good, and she knew what was at stake if she didn’t, but she didn’t go that route. She held onto her daughter. That made him think the mother daughter relationship could heal.

Devon and Amanda had cheese, wine and ice cream, and he promised he’d always distract her when she needed him to. She said she had a dysfunctional family – her grandfather the criminal, the mother who idolized him and her father and sister she’d never get a chance to meet. He told her not to forget Imani – there was potential in that relationship. She said he was always so positive and he saw the good in everyone. She said when she wanted to walk away, he was always there encouraging her. She thanked him for believing in her. He said it was very easy to do when you love someone. She was caught off guard. He reiterated that he loved her, and she said she loved him too.

Victoria and Ashland were at home, but they planned to leave for NY soon. She asked how he was feeling. He felt better because he’d made an appointment with a specialist in NY. She was so glad he was still planning to fight the illness. He’d be grateful for any extra time with her and Harrison, but he didn’t want her to get hopes up because the odds weren’t good. She stubbornly believed he’d beat them. He found her stubbornness attractive. She knew there were no guarantees, but she was ready to be there every step of the way.

Victoria spoke with her kids by phone and promised to bring them something back from NY. Afterward, she asked him if he wanted to talk to Harrison about his health before they went to NY. He didn’t want to deal with Tara; she’d been so unreasonable, and he didn’t want the aggravation. She said not to let his frustration with Tara keep him from his son. He doubted she’d let him talk to Harrison alone. Victoria asked why it was so important to Ashland to talk to Harrison alone. He said Harrison picked up on the tension between him and Tara, and he heard Harrison had nightmares after what happened in the park. Ashland wasn’t sure what Harrison would remember about him when he grew up. Maybe Harrison wouldn’t remember him at all, but if he did remember this talk, Ashland wanted it to be calm, comforting and reassuring, and he wanted it to be between the two of them. He was worried Tara would make it about her. Victoria didn’t know Tara, but as a mother, if Billy had something unsettling to tell the kids, she’d want to be there. She probably wouldn’t say much, but she’d want to show the kids her support. He decided to consider her perspective.

Ashland felt that Tara was using their son to punish him. Victoria suggested that Ashland could use his world-class negotiation skills to find a solution that was good for Harrison. He asked how she was so good at getting through to him. She said she respected him enough to tell him the unvarnished truth. He said there was far too much varnish in his marriage. He wished he’d met her years ago. She’d had the same thought, but maybe the younger versions of themselves wouldn’t hit it off. He was sure he’d always have fallen head over heels for her. He thought this was something he should’ve said a lot sooner. He admitted all he’d said about not wanting things to go too far weren’t about protecting her, it was about protecting himself. At first, he didn’t want to be reminded about what he’d miss out on, but none of that seemed to matter now. She said it meant they had to take advantage of every moment they had together.

Ashland went over to the Abbott house and let Tara know about his trip. Kyle asked if it was about the merger, and Ashland said something like that. He wanted to say goodbye to Harrison. Tara thought that would be fine as long as he didn’t mention the diagnosis. Ashland wanted to have that discussion now. Privately. Kyle told Tara to call if she needed him, then he left. Tara noticed Ashland had cooled off. After some reflection and a discussion with Victoria, he saw things from a mother’s perspective. He wanted to be the one to explain things to Harrison, but he didn’t object to her being there. He said he was going to seek treatment. The odds weren’t good, but he wasn’t willing to surrender. She was glad – that would give them some hope, and she thought it would be good for Harrison to hear about that. She went to get their son. Harrison ran to Ashland, who scooped him up. Ashland told Harrison that he’d been feeling yucky. Harrison asked if it was Ashland’s heart. Ashland assured his son that they’d fixed his heart. He said he was hoping the doctors in NY could fix this problem too. Tara added that NY had some of the best doctors in the world. Ashland hoped that after some special medicine, he’d be able to do some things with his favorite little boy. He kissed Harrison’s forehead.

At Crimson Lights, Kyle asked Victoria if she was going to NY, and she said yes. He hoped he didn’t make a mistake leaving Ashland and Tara alone. Things got volatile last time. Victoria was sure Ashland would be fine – he didn’t want to leave until things were on better terms with Tara. Kyle thought Victoria deserved some credit for Ashland’s change in attitude. She said they all wanted what was best for the boy. He said he and Tara just said the same thing. He asked how much Ashland told her about Tara. She said not much, but she knew how hurt he was when he found out Harrison wasn’t his biological son. Kyle said Tara never told him she was pregnant. Victoria commented that Tara was good at keeping secrets, then she apologized and asked if he and Tara were rekindling things. He said no, they were just living in the same house and co-parenting. She told him to be careful, then she left.

Victoria and Ashland met up at the house. She was going to help him with the bags, but he said he could get them. He let her know things went well with Harrison. He thought it was good of Kyle to give them privacy. He said Kyle usually hovered because Tara had him wrapped around her finger. Victoria wasn’t so sure about that.

Sally, who was at home, called Tara and ranted about Phyllis, calling her a bitch. Kyle was in his way into the living room when he overheard Tara say “Sally, you have got to calm down.” Tara didn’t see Kyle, and he went around the corner to eavesdrop. Sally said she was losing Jack, and Tara told her let things calm down. Sally thought it was too late for her and Jack, and given how he was acting, she thought Tara was on thin ice too. Tara felt things were actually going fine for her. She said they both gave the same explanation for the elevator conversation. She felt Sally had handled it as best she could. The call ended, and Tara left the room. Kyle looked troubled.

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Carly: Well, I guess it’s time — I have to take these off.  [ Breathes sharply ]

Jason: Only — only if you’re ready.

Carly: I’m not. But it has to be done.  [ Sighs ] [ Voice breaking ] I miss him.

Jason: Yeah, I miss him, too.

Carly: It’s beautiful.

Laura: Hey.

Carly: Hey!

Laura: Oh, I’m sorry I’m late. I had some last-minute business, um, repairing potholes.

Carly: Oh, well, you can’t talk too much about potholes.

Laura: [ Laughs ] I beg to differ.

Carly: [ Laughs ]

Laura: But I didn’t come here to talk about business. I came here to celebrate your engagement to Jason.

Carly: Oh!  Yeah, I just saw that the bartender set aside a bottle of our best champagne for you.  That is not necessary.

Laura: It absolutely is. Think about it — all the bad news that we had to put up with this year. It’s very important to celebrate the good times.

Carly: Yes. [ Laughs ]

Gladys: I agree with the mayor.  And please let me offer my congratulations. When’s the wedding date so I can put it in my calendar?

Brando: I’ve already ordered us drinks.

Sasha: Ooh.

Brando: Nonalcoholic.

Sasha: Just because I’m pregnant doesn’t mean that you have to abstain.

Brando: I don’t have to abstain. I want to. I want to go through everything that you’re going through.

Sasha: You’ll share my labor pains, too?

Brando: Yeah! I would if I could. Or is — is that too weird and stalkerish?

Sasha: Uh, from anyone else, yeah, kind of. From you… not in the least.

Brando: [ Chuckles ] Good. And, um, just so you know, I told Carly that I’m not interested in working in Sonny’s business.

Sasha: How’d she react?

Brando: Relieved, I think. Yeah, but mostly happy that you and I have gotten together. Carly likes you a lot.

Sasha: I like Carly a lot. When I was using, she, uh… really tried to help me. She was kind and supportive.

Brando: But you still don’t want our baby anywhere near the Corinthos business.

Sasha: Nor the baby’s father.

Brando: Okay. So, two of your wishes have come true. What’s your third wish?

Sasha: To know where we go from here?

Josslyn: Okay. Sparkling green tea infused with mango, specialty of the house.

Trina: This is good!

Josslyn: My mom’s idea. She wanted the nonalcoholic drinks to be just as good as the ones with booze.

Trina: Mmm! This is so nice, so relaxing.

Josslyn: Sometimes. You know, without spencer lurking around.

Trina: He’s not so bad.

Josslyn: Mm. He can be. Proceed with caution.

Trina: Oh, my god. You sound like me talking to my mom.

Josslyn: She told you to proceed with caution?

Trina: Well, I almost did. My mom’s seeing someone.

Josslyn: Like, dating him?

Trina: Yep. And it’s the first time my mom’s ever been serious enough about a guy, other than my dad, to tell me about it.

Portia:  I can’t believe this is real. We’re really together.

Curtis: We are together.

Portia:  [ Laughs ] Which is why I was able to tell Trina. I mean, do you know what a huge deal that is? I’ve never spoken to Trina about any man that I was seeing.

Curtis: Why’s that?

Portia:  Because no one was important enough.

Dante: You wanted to see me?

Jordan: Yeah, I got your report on David Hopkins, the medevac pilot.

Dante: Yeah, we got some good info from Anna. I’ve been going over the security footage from the, uh, hospital from the day the, uh, pilot tried to pick up Peter from the roof.

Jordan: Any luck?

Dante: No. Cyrus’ people disabled all the cameras from the stairwell leading to the rooftop.

Jordan: So, no update on Peter’s potential accomplice?

Dante: Mnh. Anna said the chopper pilot’s description was a bit vague.

Jordan: Yeah, I read that in your report.  Did Anna tell you what she’s doing to follow up?

Finn:  You ready?

Anna: It’s empty.

Finn:  It’s impossible.

Anna: Eh…

Finn:  I put Peter’s body in here myself.

Anna: Okay, you need to be really honest with me. Who else knows about this?

Elizabeth: Finn and I put Peter in the freezer ourselves. If Finn moved the body, he would have told me. Maybe it was Anna. Maybe she found out.

Jason: Somebody would have seen her. The cameras weren’t disabled until a few minutes before I made it down to the basement.

Elizabeth: Unless Anna figured out a way around the cameras. I saw them together in Finn’s office. The way they looked — I think Finn was telling Anna he killed Peter.

Trina: I honestly don’t know why I’m so weirded out by my mom dating. Maybe because it feels like life is changing so fast, and I just want her to stay the same.

Josslyn: I know what you mean. I mean, we’re going to college soon, and it seems like our moms are taking advantage of our new lives to start new lives of their own.

Trina: Your mom is marrying Jason.

Josslyn: And your mom’s getting serious about dating.

Trina: It’s hard seeing my mom other than a mom and a doctor. Maybe that’s partly why I’m so confused.

Josslyn: What’s the other part?

Trina: I think it’s the man my mom is seeing.

Portia: What’s that look about?

Curtis: You know, I’m just touched that you told Trina about me. But I’m also surprised.

Portia: Why?

Curtis: Uh, because I know that Trina’s happiness is your priority. Mm, thank you.

Portia: Mm-hmm.

Curtis: But I gotta know — what was her reaction?

Portia: Trina admitted that she felt a little weird — her word…

Curtis: Okay.

Portia: …Talking about it. But in the end, she says she just wants to see me happy.

Curtis: Alright. So, if her reaction about the news had been different, would I be sitting here right now?

Portia: Probably not.

Curtis: [ Laughs ] That’s fair.

Portia: [ Laughing ] Yeah, I know. But I would have done my best to convince her, you know, to see the man that I see.

Curtis: And we know how convincing you can be when you want to be.

Portia: And don’t you ever forget it.

Curtis: That said… when you’re ready, can I convince you and Trina to let me treat you to dinner?

Portia: Oh.

Jordan: Okay, thanks for letting me know. I’ll handle it personally. That was Monica Quartermaine. Some of the security cameras at G.H. are down again.

Dante: What, the ones that were just fixed?

Jordan: Afraid so.

Dante: Well, Cyrus is in jail. That means, uh, his network is still intact.

Jordan: Maybe they want to continue to operate out of the hospital.

Dante: Let’s go.

Jason: There is no way Anna and Finn made it to the basement before me.

Elizabeth: But I’m sure Finn was telling Anna everything when I barged into his office. I even gave him an excuse to leave, and he didn’t take me up on it.

Jason: Right. No, I-I heard your — I heard your voicemail, but I was already on my way down to the freezer. We would have crossed paths.

Elizabeth: Okay, so if somebody else found the body and stole it, then why haven’t they contacted Finn or me?

Jason: I-I don’t know. Maybe somebody’s trying to protect you.  Peter had a lot of enemies. There’d be a lot of people very glad that he’s dead.

Elizabeth: Glad enough to be our guardian angel? To cover up Finn pushing Peter down the stairs?

Jason: Elizabeth, there’s hundreds of people coming in and out of this hospital every day. It’s possible somebody stepped in.

Elizabeth: Well, is there a way to find out?

Jason: There is.

Finn: [ Groans ] I already told you, no one else knows that I killed Peter and put his body in the freezer.

Anna: Someone could have seen you without you knowing.

Finn: Maybe. Maybe. Even if I was watched, why would someone move his body?

Anna: To protect you?

Finn: Wouldn’t they tell me?

Anna: It depends who this person is. There is, of course, another explanation.

Finn: Which is?

Anna: Well, are you absolutely certain that Peter was dead?

Brando: If you were granting me the “where do we go from here?” wish, I’d say I want to spend more time with you.

Sasha: You think we should get to know each other better before the baby arrives?

Brando: That would help with co-parenting, don’t you think?

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Brando: Am I keeping you from something?

Sasha: Ah, no, I, uh… I set a reminder on my phone to go check for apartments. My studio is so tiny, even I can barely fit into it, never mind adding a baby.

Brando: Mm.  Which reminds me, I need to baby-proof my apartment for when you and the baby come over.  A-and maybe someday the three of us will move in together. N-no pressure.

Sasha: The three of us, as in you, me, and our baby? Or you, me, and Gladys?

Carly: Jason and I have not set a date yet, so invitations are not an issue.

Gladys: Mm. Well, I-I hope they won’t be where I’m concerned. Remember, Sonny — may he rest — was my dear cousin.

Laura: And my dear friend.

Gladys: Yeah. Yeah, so then you realize he’d want people at the wedding who remember him fondly, instead of dancing on his grave.

Carly: Gladys, you will not be on the guest list.

Gladys: After I risked my life to exonerate the groom.

Carly: After you perjured yourself to make sure he was arrested in the first place.

Brando: Hey, Ma, just saw you were here. Want to grab a drink?

Gladys: Oh, can you afford it? I mean, the prices here are so high, and you chose not to join the lucrative Corinthos Coffee business.

Laura: I’m sure that he had good reasons for that.

Carly: Yes, like a successful garage to run.

Gladys: Not as successful as the family business.

Brando: Okay, that’s enough. Come on. Sasha’s waiting.

Laura: Oh, my god. [ Laughs ] I’m so sorry.

Carly: Oh, my god. I’m sorry you had to listen to all that. I mean, Brando’s a sweetheart. That’s the only reason I don’t have her thrown out of my restaurant.

Laura: Mm. How do you feel about what she said?

Carly: What, when Gladys said I was dancing on Sonny’s grave? Just Gladys — petty, nasty, and dead wrong.

Josslyn: Your mom is seeing Curtis Ashford?

Trina: I know, right? I mean, on the one hand, I spent months hating Curtis for not doing more to save my dad. Then I realized my dad wasn’t actually dead, so I had to take a step back to apologize to Curtis and reassess. And that was before Curtis saved me and my mom from Cyrus Renault, so it’s already completely complicated. And now on top of everything, he’s dating my mom.

Josslyn: Well, do you think that’s why your mom and he got together? Because of what happened when Renault took you guys hostage?

Trina: I think that’s part of it, but I suspect it started before then. For a while, I thought my mom was the reason that Commissioner Ashford and Curtis split up.

Jordan: So, Dr. Quartermaine said that there was an issue with the new security measures that she put in place, specifically the cameras installed in the stairwells leading up to the roof and the hallways in the basement.

Security Guard: I thought it was best to let Dr. Quartermaine know so she could bring in the PCPD in case Renault’s people are involved again.

Dante: How do we access the hospital’s basements?

Security Guard: This way.

Portia: I love that you want to get to know my daughter better, and I promise you that I’m gonna take you up on that offer… after we spend a little bit more time together, get a little bit more comfortable. And after you…

Curtis: After I tell Jordan about us, of course.

Portia: I know speaking with her is not gonna be easy.

Curtis: That’s not what worries me.

Portia: Then what is?

Curtis: Exactly how much did you tell Trina about you and me? Did you mention that we had an affair while you were still married to her father?

Gladys: How’s my grandchild? You taking good care of him or her?

Sasha: Of course. This baby is my number-one priority.

Gladys: Mm. Like — like Brando is mine.  [ Chuckles ] You know, if my grandchild is anything like his dad, you be prepared for changing lots and lots of diapers.

Brando: Mom, what?

Sasha: I’m prepared. And I am sure Brando will be prepared, too.

Gladys: Right. Of course. But, um, you know, you and the baby can’t move in with us. There’s no room.

Brando: Actually, Mom, I wanted to talk to you about that. I think it’s time you moved out.

Laura: You and Jason are planning a future together, and that is something to celebrate.

Carly: Thank you.

Laura: Mm-hmm.

Carly: Mm. You don’t think it’s too soon after Sonny, do you?

Laura: Oh, come on, now, Carly, don’t let Gladys get to you.

Carly: I’m not. I’m not. I mean, I know — I know Gladys makes anyone a target. I get that.

Laura: You know, I have to admit that when I heard that you two were engaged, I was a little surprised, too.

Carly: You wanted to know how, so soon after Sonny’s death?

Laura: Carly, I’m not passing judgment on you.

Carly: [ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I know that. It’s — it’s not you.  [ Chuckles ] And it’s not Gladys. It’s me.

Jason: Spinelli confirmed that he disengaged the cameras in the stairwells leading to the roof and the stairwells below the parking garage.

Elizabeth: So, hospital security couldn’t see you taking the elevator to the sub-basement.

Jason: Or entering it, either. And when I didn’t find Peter’s body in the freezer, I had Spinelli check the footage to see if anybody was heading down to the basement before the cameras were disabled.

Elizabeth: And? I mean, did he see someone?

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Jason: It’s Spinelli. He’s got an answer.

Anna: I imagine that things were moving really fast, and could you have been mistaken about Peter’s death?

Finn: I think I’d know if somebody was dead.

Anna: Yeah, okay, so conditions were less than ideal. Chase was in a critical condition. You needed to move Peter’s body before it was discovered. You wouldn’t be the first doctor to make a mistake.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Jordan: Anna? Finn? What are you doing down here?

Anna: Oh, hey, sorry to catch you off guard. Um, I just was following up on what we talked about.

Dante: Right. Uh, well, we got a call from Dr. Quartermaine. Some of the security cameras in the stairwells and corridors leading to this sub-basement were also turned off.

Anna: Oh.

Jordan: Now it’s your turn. What are you doing down here?

Trina: You know my dad’s staying at Commissioner Ashford’s.

Josslyn: Mm-hmm.

Trina: I went by one night a little while ago. I saw Curtis’ stuff in boxes waiting for him to pick them up. But I had a good talk with Commissioner Ashford, and she said the reason she and Curtis split up was because she kept too many secrets.  So my mom had nothing to do with it.

Josslyn: So you have nothing to worry about.

Trina: I don’t know. I still feel bad for Commissioner Ashford, especially after I went to Curtis’ nightclub right after.

Josslyn: Why? What happened?

Trina: Curtis was taking off his wedding band… with my mom’s help.

Josslyn: That’s…strange.

Trina: I know! And I told Ava, and she said not to worry.  But now that my mom and Curtis are dating, I can’t shake the feeling that they’ve been involved… earlier.

Josslyn: Well, how much earlier?

Trina: That’s what’s freaking me out.  What if Curtis cheated on Commissioner Ashford with my mom?

Portia: No, I definitely did not tell Trina that you and I were a thing when I was married to her father. That would break her heart.

Curtis: Okay, but Trina forgave Taggert for faking his own death, right? If she can handle that, then maybe she can handle this.

Portia: Look, I-I understand how you feel about secrets, and I’m usually right there with you. I get it. But how is this something Trina needs to know?

Curtis: Portia, what if our history blows up in our faces? Secrets come out. Just ask Jordan.

Gladys: You’re kicking me out? You put my son up to this, didn’t you?

Brando: No, it was my idea. Okay, Mom? I need the second bedroom for the baby.

Gladys: Is Sasha moving in, too?

Brando: We’re not ready for that yet.

Sasha: But there will be times when the baby stays overnight with Brando.

Gladys: And can sleep in his room. You’re gonna need my help for changing diapers and getting up for late-night feedings.

Brando: I think I can handle that. The baby needs a nursery, though, which means you need to find a place to live.

Gladys: You can’t afford to pay my rent, especially since you won’t be working for Jason and Carly, which is where the real money is.

Brando: I’m not going to be paying your rent, okay? You will.

Gladys: How do you expect me to do that?

Brando: The same way everybody else does — by getting a job.

Laura: Are you having second thoughts?

Carly: Uh, no, not at all. I mean, Jason and I made this decision together, and we’re committed. You know, there’s no one else I’d rather spend my life with.

Laura: Well, I can think of one other person.

Carly: I loved Sonny for so long. You know, I, um… I still do. I miss him so much, Laura. I think about him a thousand times a day. Sometimes I start to text him a picture of donna, or I wake up thinking I heard him climb into bed next to me.

Laura: Of course. Of course you do. Love do-doesn’t go away overnight.

Carly: Oh, Jason gets that. You know, he does. He’s grieving for Sonny, too.

Laura: Yeah. Listen, Carly, a part of you will always be with Sonny, and he with you. And that’s okay. It really is. And it’s only natural that the friendship that you have with Jason would develop into something more now that he’s gone.

Jason: Spinelli saw nothing on the security footage that would indicate that anyone took the elevator down to the lab before I did.

Elizabeth: Cyrus had the cameras turned off when he was head of G.H. There was no surveillance when Finn confronted Peter on the roof and pushed him down the stairs.

Jason: Or when you and Finn put Peter’s body in the freezer. And then the camera stays off for the next several weeks. There’s no way to know who took Peter’s body.

Anna: Well, like I-I told you, Dante, um, David Hopkins, the chopper pilot — he was supposed to pick Peter up from the roof.

Dante: Yeah, I let, uh, Jordan know.

Jordan: Yeah, someone else was on the roof with Peter.

Anna: Right. So, I thought I’d retrace Peter steps, because we know he wasn’t picked up by the helicopter. Took me to the roof, and then I found the abandoned elevator shaft, came down here to the sub-basement. I was vaguely familiar with this place.

Jordan: Dr. Finn? How did you get involved?

Finn: I saw Anna on her way up to the roof, and when she told me what she was doing, I offered to help. I thought maybe I could find some… hidden exit that Peter used.

Dante: Hey, Jordan.

Jordan: What is it?

Dante: Blood.

Gladys: A job? What kind of job?

Brando: You have tons of work experience.

Gladys: [ Scoffs ] Oh, you mean slingin’ hash, sellin’ perfume at department stores, cleaning houses?

Brando: It was honest work, Ma.

Gladys: It was hard work. Sometimes Mike would hit the right pony and send a few bucks my way just so I could put food on the table and not send you to school in torn shirts.

Brando: I know. And I appreciate that. And didn’t I send you money when I was in the military?

Sasha: Before you told everyone Brando was dead?

Brando: Okay, look, the point is, my kid deserves the best life that Sasha and I can give them. And that means turning the spare bedroom into a nursery and filling it with a crib and toys and a changing table.

Gladys: Well — well — okay. Where am I supposed to live? And who would even hire me? I’m not as young as I used to be.

Sasha: I will hire you, Gladys. Work at Deception.

Carly: I guess I just haven’t gotten used to the idea that I’m marrying my best friend.

Laura: Kevin was my friend long before we fell in love. Those are the best marriages.

Carly: Okay, well, did your friendship change after you got married?

Laura: If anything, we just got closer, you know, because we started out as friends. Kevin gave me this amazing sense of stability, you know, that no matter how crazy life got, and it did, I knew that Kevin would be there to catch me if I fell. And we can disagree, you know, and we still like each other, and — and we respect each other. We work well together.  [ Chuckles ] We complement each other, you know? And over time, our feelings for each other just deepened.

Carly: You’re very lucky, Laura.

Laura: I am. I give thanks every day for Kevin. I don’t know how I would have gotten through this tragedy with lulu without him.

Josslyn: When I was a kid, I used to think my parents were perfect. But then I grew up, and I realized they make mistakes just like everybody else.

Trina: Do you think my mom lied to me about when she started seeing Curtis?

Josslyn: I don’t know your mom like you do. I mean, does it seem like something she’d do?

Trina: Blow up someone else’s marriage? My mom’s not like that.

Josslyn: Then she probably didn’t.

Trina: You’re right. It’s just unsettling because if something sketchy was happening, and Curtis could do that to Commissioner Ashford, he could turn around and do it to my mom.

Josslyn: Yeah, but at the end of the day, I mean, your mom and Curtis are adults. What they do is their business, not yours.

Trina: Wrong.

Portia: The secrets that Jordan kept from you have nothing to do with what I choose or don’t choose to tell my daughter.

Curtis: I respectfully disagree. See, secrets are alike in one pivotal way. They’re like — they’re like ticking time bombs, and they’re ready to explode, hurting everyone that’s close to them. There’s already too many people who know about the affair that we had while you were still married to Taggert.

Portia: Marcus would never, ever tell Trina, and neither would Jordan. And I know your Aunt Stella likes to stick her nose where doesn’t belong, but I don’t even think that she would want to hurt Trina in that way.

Curtis: Okay. I know Laura wouldn’t say anything. But when this many people know about a secret, it’s bound to get out, intentional or not. I’m really surprised you’re not worried about this.

Portia: And I’m surprised how hard you’re pushing me to go against my better judgment…

Curtis: [ Sighs ]

Portia: …And tell my daughter something that — that serves no purpose and that I don’t think she should know.

Curtis: Hold on. Are we having a fight?

Dante: Not very much.

Jordan: Yeah, well, we’ll get forensics in here.

Dante: If Peter made his way down here from the roof, he could be hurt.

Jordan: Or did he hurt the person that he was on the roof with?

Dante: Check the corridor, see if there’s any other evidence.

Jordan: Yeah, you check the west side of the sub-basement. I’ll check the east.

Dante: Will do.

Jordan: Hey, this is officially a crime scene, so don’t touch anything.

Anna: Oh. We already did. Yeah, we were in such a rush that neither Finn or I thought to glove up. So you’ll just — you’ll have to tell forensics to account for our fingerprints and DNA.

Jordan: I’ll let them know.

[ Footsteps receding ]

Finn: Thanks for covering for me. But what happens to you if Jordan finds out you’re withholding information?

Jason: The camera was off for weeks after Peter disappeared. I mean, anybody could have made it to the basement without being seen.

Elizabeth: That’s the point, Jason. Nobody goes down there. Most people don’t know the sub-basement even exists. It’s not even on the hospital floor plans.

Jason: [ Sighs ] Okay, just take me through what happened again. Alright? Not — just what you saw, not what Finn told you. I just need to know everything that you remember.

Elizabeth: Okay. I was worried about Finn. When I got to the 10th floor stairwell, I found Peter’s body lying on the landing.

Elizabeth: Peter?

Elizabeth: He was bleeding from the back of his head, and it was obvious that he had fallen. So I went to check his pulse, couldn’t find one.

Elizabeth: Can you hear me?

Elizabeth: I looked up, and I saw Finn standing in the doorway to the roof, and then he came down the stairs. Peter was dead. Finn couldn’t risk a police investigation while Chase was critical.

Jason: [ Sighs ]

Elizabeth: And that’s when I remembered the elevator on the roof that goes straight down to Helena’s lab. So we dragged Peter’s body… up to the roof and into the elevator and… down to the lab, and put him in the freezer. And then I went back to the stairwell to clean up the blood and make it look like nothing ever happened.

Jason: Okay, you sure you checked Peter’s pulse?

Elizabeth: Yes! There was no pulse. He wasn’t breathing!

Jason: Okay, what about Finn? Did he check Peter’s pulse?

Elizabeth: I think so. I — honestly, I don’t remember. I don’t — I don’t know. Why?

Jason: Ah, maybe he wasn’t dead.

Elizabeth: Of course he was dead, Jason. Finn and I know what dead looks like.

Jason: You guys were panicked, and you were rushed. Maybe you made a mistake.

Elizabeth: So you think Peter climbed his way out of the freezer and just walked away?

Jason: Either that or someone saw you and Finn put Peter in the freezer, and somebody came and took his body.

Elizabeth: I think Anna and Finn may have some answers, so I’m calling Finn.

Anna: Don’t worry about me. They believe that Peter’s still alive, and with no body, there’s no evidence of a crime.

Finn: Except for this blood.

Anna: They can’t connect that to you.

Finn: So we just let them assume that Peter’s alive.

Anna: We can’t be sure he’s not.

Gladys: Work at Deception? As…a model, like Elizabeth Hurley?

Sasha: I was thinking something more administrative. We have an assistant position open. You would be answering phones, helping with scheduling, handling e-mail.

Gladys: Mm. That sounds tedious.

Brando: Mom.

Sasha: Gladys, what do you think of when you think of Deception?

Gladys: [ Sputters ] Glamour, beauty, uh, perfect women.

Sasha: And that is what people will think of you when they hear that you’re working for the company. They will know that you have a glamorous job dealing with beautiful people. They will be in awe of you, knowing that you are part of Deception’s world.

Gladys: Um… can I have free makeup, all the products?

Sasha: Of course.

Gladys: Then I’ll take it. But the first person who asks me to make coffee —

Sasha: Will be told to make their own coffee.

Gladys: [ Laughs ]

Carly: When Michael was a baby, all I wanted was to marry Jason. And now I’m actually marrying him. I know it’s the right thing for me and my family. I do.

Laura: Why do you sound so unconvinced, Carly?

Carly: Because I’d just — I’d like to — I’d like to think that Sonny would approve of my marrying Jason. Or is that just wishful thinking? Something I tell myself to feel better about moving on so soon after Sonny’s passing?

Laura: Oh, honey. I know that Sonny just adored you, and I believe that he would understand. In fact, I think that he would be grateful that Jason is there to look after you.

Anna: With no body and a potential blood trail, we have to at least consider the possibility that Peter is still alive.

Finn: Maybe you want to believe that because it exonerates me or, at the very least, reduces the charges.

Anna: The only thing that you can be certain of is that you put him in this freezer, and he’s not there.

Finn: Mm.

Anna: So we have to figure out what happened to him.

Finn: Where do we even begin?

Anna: That is the question of the hour. I think we divide and conquer. I’ll take the police, and you go and find Elizabeth. She clearly wanted to say something to you when she interrupted our conversation earlier.

Finn: Okay.

Anna: Okay.

Finn: Anna. Thank you.

Elizabeth: Finn and I have been torturing ourselves ever since this happened, afraid to leave Peter’s body in the freezer in case somebody finds him, unable to move it, and… what if we’ve been worrying all this time for nothing? What if somebody actually came in and moved the body the minute we left the lab?

Jason: It’s the best thing that could happen. Peter’s gone. No body, nothing to cover up. It’s like it never happened.

Elizabeth: Right.

[ Knock on door ]

Finn: Elizabeth, it’s me. I got your message.  Hey. Oh!

Elizabeth: It’s okay. Jason knows everything.

Finn: So does Anna.

Elizabeth: Well, then, did you find the body? Did you move it?

Finn: There was no body. There was nothing in the freezer. It was empty.  And the PCPD are investigating.

Elizabeth: Do they know?

Finn: Anna covered for me.

Jason: What about Elizabeth?

Finn: I left her out of it. No one knows you were involved.

Jordan: Anna. I’ve called in my top crime-scene investigators and forensic specialists to investigate what happened down here.

Anna: What about the K-9 unit?

Jordan: They were my first call.

ante: Hey. Found something.

Gladys: Must go prepare for my new life. [ Chuckles ] Sasha, you won’t regret hiring me. See you at home.

Brando: Bravo, Ms. Gilmore.

[ Door closes ]

Brando: Bravo. You deserve the gold medal in handling Gladys Corbin. That — that — that takes years of hard practice. What — do you know what you got yourself into?

Sasha: Keeping your mom busy and out of our lives. Now we can finally have some privacy before the baby comes.

Brando: Yeah, before our lives explode into a million pieces of joy mingled with dirty diapers.

Sasha: [ Laughs ] I think the joy will outweigh the dirty diapers.

Brando: I’m counting on it.

Josslyn: So, what are you going to do about your mom and Curtis?

Trina: Well, first thing on the list is keeping an eye on Curtis, and if he isn’t treating my mom right, he will know pain, and a lot of it.

Josslyn: Well, I almost feel sorry for that man. Remind me to never get on your bad side.

Trina: I can’t think of any situation where that would ever happen.

Josslyn: Same here.

Portia: No, we’re not having a fight. We’re having a disagreement, and it’s over.

Curtis: Okay, well, fight or disagreement, I just don’t want you mad at me. Trina’s anger was scary enough.

Portia: Oh, where do you think she got it from?

[ Both laugh ]

Portia: Do you want to have some more wine?

Curtis: Well, now, that just depends on you.

Portia: Um… why don’t we save the wine till after you speak with Jordan and after our first official date?

Curtis: Mm. And what does that date look like to you?

Portia: Well, definitely dinner, some candlelight, a little bit of soft music, and we’ll see where the night takes us from there.

Dante: Found more blood in the corridor.

Jordan: How much?

Dante: If it belongs to Peter August, he’s hurt pretty bad.

Jordan: Well, we’ll find out. I just told Anna I’m throwing everything at this.

Anna: What’s your first step?

Jordan: Finding the man who was on the roof with Peter.

Carly: You know, I-I do think Sonny would approve of my marrying Jason.

Laura: But it doesn’t make you miss him any less.

Carly: No.

Laura: [ Sighs ]

Carly: No, it doesn’t.

Laura: You know, the thing about marriage is that it’s not a sprint, you know? I-it’s definitely a long-distance race that’s made up of a million different moments shared between two people, big and small. I personally think it’s a huge advantage to go into that with someone you already know and you trust. You know?

Carly: Yeah. [ Chuckles ]

Laura: And I think over time, Jason will just take more and more of your heart. That’s how it was for Kevin and me.

Carly: [ Sighs ]

Elizabeth: Thank you for keeping me off Jordan’s radar.

Finn: Of course. I think Anna suspects someone helped me move the body, but she’s keeping quiet, and the police believe Peter’s alive, so we have that working for us.

Elizabeth: What do you think?

Jason: I mean, as long as the cops don’t know you guys put Peter’s body in that freezer, I think you’re off the hook… for now.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Nikolas (to Sam): Stop looking for her, unless you want trouble.

Trina (to Josslyn): Are you warning me away from Spencer?

Spencer (to Ava): Do you think that we could put the past behind us?

Elizabeth (on phone): We need to talk about Hayden.

Dante (to Olivia): Why do I get the feeling you’re gonna tell me something I don’t want to hear?

Valentin (to Anna): Why does Finn need protecting?

Chase (to Brook Lynn): Real mother?

Jack: I’d like an order of white lilies surrounded by blue hydrangeas. Yeah, I want it to be stunning. I’m going for the “wow” factor that matches the woman they’re being delivered to. Perfect. Thanks.

Lauren: Wow. Who’s the lucky lady? Do I know her?

Jack: As a matter of fact, you know her well. Sally and I are giving it another shot.

Lauren: Oh. Uh… [ Chuckles ] I’m a bit surprised.

Jack: Do you think it’s a mistake?

Sally: Well, I found three more erroneous charges on my bill. This is getting ridiculous.

Phyllis: Ugh. Listen, I am so sorry. Whoever is responsible for this will get an earful from me.

Sally: You’re the boss. Doesn’t the buck stop with you?

Phyllis: You’re right. I am in control.

[ Clears throat ] So, sally, uh, just go ahead and after you’re done marking off the charges that aren’t yours, put them in charge in this folder, and I’ll take care of it.

Sally: Well, good, because i am not paying for one cent of any of these.

Phyllis: You’re right. You will only be paying for what you are responsible for. I promise you that.

Kyle: So…tell me more about what went down with ashland.

Tara: Well, he sees me as the enemy. I tried to plead with him, appeal to his sense of compassion, but it was futile. I mean, thankfully jack came home in the middle of our conversation before things could get too heated. Ashland seemed to ease off a little bit in jack’s presence, but I could still see the fury behind his eyes. I just feel like he is weaponizing telling harrison the truth, and that now it is this ticking time bomb.

Kyle: That’s not right. How do you want to handle things moving forward? Are you gonna let ashland talk to harrison alone like you said he wanted?

Tara: We can’t wait for him to be reasonable ’cause it’s never going to happen. I think I should tell harrison with you by my side.

Kyle: Oh, won’t that only make ashland angrier?

Tara: I don’t know, but i just — I feel really helpless right now, and I’m worried about what ashland is gonna do next, and I just — I really want to be proactive.

Kyle: Okay. I know you have harrison’s best interests at heart, but I think sharon had the right idea. Her professional opinion made sense to me — that you and ashland should break the news to harrison alone. I mean, this is the most important conversation you’ll ever have with him. There’s no need to rush it.

Tara: Maybe you’re right. You are probably seeing things a little more clearly than I am. And I am very grateful that i have you to talk everything through with.

Kyle: This is about all of us. So we’re waiting?

Tara: Yes. Hopefully ashland will cool off and I will be able to talk to him again.

Kyle: Sounds good.

Tara: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: You still seem a bit anxious. Is there something else bothering you?

Tara: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: Uh-huh. Fantastic. That sounds great. Alright, talk to you soon.

Elena: Hey, you.

Nate: Hey!

Elena: Hey, what was that all about, good news?

Nate: I was just about to call you. Look, I want to take you out right now for some very expensive champagne.

Elena: [ Laughs ] Okay. But we’re not really date ready. I mean, you’re mid-job, and I’m still in my scrubs.

Nate: Good point, good point. Let’s go back home and change, and I will meet you at society.

Elena: Okay, but first, are you gonna tell me what you’re so excited to celebrate?

Nate: Not quite yet, but if you hurry up, you will be the first to find out.

Devon: Thank you.

Abby: Thank you for meeting me for coffee.

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: Again, you truly have been my rock.

Devon: If that’s your way of saying that I’m hard-headed, probably know some people that agree with you.

Abby: No, that’s my way of saying that you have been a really great friend.

Devon: Aw, so have you. I hope that smile on your face is ’cause mariah’s come back.

Abby: No, I — I wish. I’m just as worried about her as I was before. Maybe more.

Devon: Really? You haven’t heard anything new from her?

Abby: She sent a couple text messages. She did say that she’d be home before the next doctor’s appointment, which is within the week.

Devon: Okay. Well, that’s a relief that she said that. I really thought she’d be back by now, though.

Abby: Me, too. I just hope that she means it when she says that she’s coming back soon and that she’ll be in a good place when she gets here.

Mariah: [ Gasps ]

[ Sighs ] Good morning, kiddo.

[ Sighs ]

Lauren: You know, it’s not my place to decide if somebody’s relationship is a mistake. But for the record, I have no issue with you and sally giving it another go. In fact, I’m really glad I gave her another shot at fenmore’s, because without these second chances, you and I might have missed out on the phenom named sally spectra.

Jack: I take it she’s doing a great job at jcv.

Lauren: Jack, she’s shining.

Jack: Wow.

Lauren: So much so that I’m considering making her job as acting head of jcv permanent.

Jack: That is just great news.

Lauren: Oh, look at you.

Jack: What?

Lauren: Wearing dina’s “teardrop of love.” Mm, maybe they’re working their magic.

Jack: Oh, I wouldn’t go that far. No, sally and I are just trying to find our footing again. Though these stones seem to be working their magic on you and michael.

Lauren: Yes, we’ve never been happier. But you know what? Maybe these gemstones represented a different kind of love for you. Maybe instead of romantic, it’s familial. I know what a gift it is for you to have your grandson in your life.

Jack: Oh, it is such a joy to have that boy in the house.

Lauren: Mm.

Jack: I only wish it had happened sooner. Maybe dina would have had a chance to meet her great-grandson.

Lauren: Aww.

Jack: Maybe you’re right. Maybe the stones have brought the next generation of the abbott family home.

Lauren: [ Laughs ] But you’re not buying it, are you?

Jack: No, truthfully, I think of the necklace as, well, signifying hope, which I have an abundance of these days. I get to watch harrison growing up. I get to spend time with a lovely, clever, charming woman, wherever that goes. And each day seems to present a new opportunity. No, I’m — I couldn’t be more grateful or happy than I am right now. And I have you to thank for part of that. Thank you for sharing that necklace with my family.

Lauren: Oh, you’re so welcome. I mean, I can’t take all the credit. I’m happy for you, jack. You deserve all the joy there is in life, my friend.

Jack: Thank you. I want the same for you.

Phyllis: So all the charges have been deleted from your account. It won’t happen again.

Sally: Oh, no, it won’t happen again because I intend to keep a much closer eye on my bill from here on out.

Phyllis: Oh, obviously, obviously. Can I offer you a free day at the spa? It’s on us. I mean, I want to do that for the inconvenience.

Sally: That’s awfully nice of you. Little too nice.

Phyllis: Oh, okay, well, if you’re not interested in that, maybe some training sessions. You know, that super-hot trainer still has a crush on you.

Sally: Well, thank you very much for your thoughtfulness, but I’m not sure jack would be too happy about that.

Phyllis: Oh, that’s right. That’s right. Forget I said anything. Well, if you change your mind about a facial or massage, just give me the word.

Sally: Or you could just owe me one.

Phyllis: I definitely owe you one. I’ll be making good on that.

Tara: I suppose nothing else is the matter besides my entire life being turned upside down. I mean, it has just been one thing after another, and it doesn’t seem to stop. First it was ashland finding out about our affair. Then it was the divorce and then the custody arrangements, and now finding out ashland’s dying. I uprooted my entire life and harrison’s to try to find a way to deal with this situation the best I could. And I can’t see any true peace for my little boy in the near future.

Kyle: You and I are gonna do everything we can to help him through this.

Tara: I know we’re gonna try, but I don’t think we’re gonna be able to protect our little, sweet boy from everything.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Kyle: Hey, it’s mine.

Tara: Right.

[ Sighs ]

Kyle: I don’t need to take this. I’ll send it to voicemail.

Tara: Yeah.

Kyle: And I know you have so much going on right now, and of course you’re on edge. Is there anything I can do for you?

Tara: You know what? I think I’m gonna need a little time alone. I think I’m gonna — I’m gonna go for a drive.

Kyle: Okay.

Tara: Yeah. Harrison is gonna be dropped off soon from a play date. Do you think you could watch him for me?

Kyle: Yeah, no problem. Not touching is still touching protection.

Abby: I want to make sure that mariah’s homecoming is everything that she needs it to be, so — so no more nagging, no more hovering. I don’t want to put any pressure on mariah at all.

Devon: Yeah, but you’re being too hard on yourself. I never saw any nagging. You’ve just been concerned, that’s all.

Abby: [ Sighs ] I’m not so sure about that. Looking back at it, I mean, even now, I mean, I was trying to find a way to track mariah through her cellphone. Yeah, that way I could figure out where she was, and then i stopped myself because i realized that that would be an invasion of privacy and that is exactly what mariah has been asking us for — privacy.

Devon: Yeah, and I’m glad you’re respecting that.

Abby: She has sent us a message loud and clear, so when she gets back, if you see me being overprotective, please stop me because the last thing i want to do is drive her away again.

Devon: Oh, no, no one’s gonna have to stop you from doing anything. You guys obviously just had a miscommunication, and now that you know how she feels about everything and you’re aware of that dynamic, you’re gonna be just fine.

Abby: Yeah, I hope so.

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: You know, I really haven’t been asking you how you’re feeling about everything. I haven’t been putting any pressure on you, have I?

Devon: No. No, not at all. I knew what I was getting myself into when I started this journey with you. I’m still happy to be on it, no matter how unpredictable it gets. And I’m glad that I can be there for you while chance is gone, too.

Abby: Yeah, I definitely did not think he was gonna be away this long. I thought that we would be decorating the nursery and reading baby books and picking out baby names — not the jokey ones that we talked about before.

Devon: I know. You’ll be able to do that soon. And now that I’m always here to lean on if you need somebody. And I’m not the only person in your corner. You have all the abbotts, the newmans, nina, tessa, got a lot of friends and family that will do anything for you. So you are definitely not alone in all this.

Abby: [ Sighs, chuckles ]

Nina: Hiya.

Tessa: Oh, hi.

Nina: Did I interrupt something?

Tessa: Oh, no.

Nina: You can tell me. What were you looking at?

Tessa: Uh… that app that stitch was talking about. Tracking people’s locations through their phones, I — I found it. And I think I know enough of mariah’s personal information and passwords to make it work.

Nina: I see. I didn’t know that you were still considering that.

Tessa: Look, I know that you and abby are against this, but i can’t do nothing. And don’t take this the wrong way, but I’m not gonna argue about it.

Nina: No, I’m not gonna argue with you about it either. Mariah’s your partner. You have to do what you feel is right.

Mariah: [ Exhales deeply ] Feel that, kiddo?

[ Sighs ] Calm, measured yoga breathing. I’m doing my best to pass that serenity on to you. ‘Cause no stress for me means no stress for you. I’m just trying to pretend that there is some sense of normalcy here because this is all very, very normal. Okay. Okay, let’s start over. Try it again.

[ Inhales ] Breathe in.

[ Exhales ] Breathe out. Staying relaxed.

[ Sighs ] Not agitated. Not claustrophobic.

[ Sighs ] You want me to try again? Okay. I will try again.

[ Sighs ]

[ Doorknob rattling ] Hey! Hey! Look, as much fun as this stay has been, me and this baby would like to get out of here now, please. Please?

[ Sighs ] I guess we’re still prisoners. Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

she wished there was a way to

make it last longer.

Elena: You clean up nicely.

Nate: So do you, but you look just as beautiful in scrubs as you are all decked out like this.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: Shall we?

Elena: I wasn’t sure exactly what to wear, considering you’ve been so cryptic. You’re not gonna keep me in suspense all night, are you?

Nate: Okay. Remember when I had some good news, but I wanted to sit on it until it was locked in?

Elena: Of course I do. I remember I tried to seduce it out of you that night. But somehow you resisted my charms.

Nate: Oh, the way I remember it, I didn’t resist.

[ Both chuckle ]

Elena: Yeah, but you didn’t tell me what was going on.

Nate: Ah. I guess I was having so much fun I forgot.

Elena: Well, I’m not opposed to trying that approach again if I have to.

Nate: Okay, good to know, but it’s not necessary. Wait, what am I saying? No, no, we can do that again. Yeah, we can go back to your place and —

Elena: I’m gonna kill you if you don’t spit it out.

Nate: Okay, okay. I’m ready to come clean.

Elena: Tell me.

Nate: You know what? Let’s get some bubbly first.

Elena: [ Scoffs ]

Nate: Excuse me. Can we get a bottle of your finest champagne?

Elena: Oh, my gosh, you’re killing me.

Abby: You do know that friendship goes both ways, right? I want to be there for you like you have been there for me.

Devon: Abby, you’re always there for me. I know you’ll have my back if i need it.

Abby: Okay, well, I have expressed all my doubts and fears, so now it is your turn. Please, tell me.

Devon: Tell you what? I don’t have any right now. I don’T. My life is pretty good.

Abby: Well, that is fantastic. Okay, well, I want to live vicariously through you, okay? Please tell me all about everything, all about your life.

Devon: All about my life?

Abby: Mm-hmm.

Devon: Okay. Well, work is going great. It’s been really nice having moses stay with me. It’s been fun. But I don’t know, I guess the main source of my happiness these days is from amanda.

Jack: Where’s harrison?

Kyle: He came from his play date exhausted, so he’s taking a nap.

Jack: Oh, I’m sorry I missed him. I was gonna grab a snack. You hungry?

Kyle: Not really.

Jack: You know, there’s a ball game on. We could check it out.

Kyle: I’m not really in the mood.

Jack: Okay. Something’s going on. What is it?

Kyle: I had a conversation with phyllis.

Jack: Oh, that would do it. About what?

Kyle: She thinks tara is somehow involved with summer leaving town, that she orchestrated the whole thing.

Jack: I know all about phyllis’ theories with tara. It upsets me as much as it does you. Look, she had tara in tears not long ago. I don’t know why she feels so compelled to stick her nose in other people’s business. It just makes me wonder about her more than it does about what she’s saying is true.

Kyle: I know she’s also hurt that summer left town so suddenly, but —

Jack: You think she’s looking to blame someone, that she just seized on tara?

Kyle: That’s what I’m thinking.

Jack: Okay, well, I have told her multiple times to back off, and she will not drop it, not with tara and not with sally.

Kyle: Sally — interesting you bring her up, because phyllis was linking tara and sally, as well. She thinks they’re working together as co-conspirators.

Sally: Tara! It’s nice to see you. What are you doing here?

Tara: I came about my shoe line and the possibility of collaborating with jcv.

Sally: Of course, yeah, let’s sit down.

Tara: Actually, I think it would be better if we went up to your suite.

Sally: Sure, yeah. Let’s go upstairs.

Tara: Tell me what happened. Are you out of your mind sending that text?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Jack: Are you actually buying into phyllis’ theory?

Kyle: Okay, I admit, I let her get into my head earlier. She had me wondering if tara was up to something.

Jack: So where are you on this now?

Kyle: The idea that tara put together this elaborate plot on top of everything she’s dealing with right now, it’s ridiculous, so, no, I don’t think tara’s scheming behind our backs.

Jack: I agree. I don’t think she’s capable of being this devious.

Kyle: Right. But sally, on the other hand…

Jack: Why would you blame sally for anything?

Kyle: Summer leaves town, sally gets her job at jcv, a job she never would have been —

Jack: Let me interrupt. Has phyllis given you any evidence to support these suspicions?

Kyle: No. But she claims she was working on finding some.

Jack: Summer recommended sally for the job. You know that. If sally was manipulating things, that doesn’t make any sense. I know she’s done some questionable things in the past, but I honestly believe she’s trying to change.

Kyle: Okay, trying is not necessarily succeeding, and i know you don’t want to hear this, dad, but you’ve been down this road with sally. I don’t want to see you get hurt again.

Phyllis: Well, look at that. Someone’s irritated, someone’s confused.

Tara: Let’s get something straight. I am not about to let you risk my life or my son’S.

Sally: I have no idea what you’re talking about. What on earth did I do to put anything at risk? The only thing I’ve been focused on lately is my job and jack.

Tara: And phyllis. I mean, what could she know that would be so important that you would send blatant and incriminating texts to my phone. Anyone who sees that would have proof of our collusion.

Sally: Okay, the more you talk, the more confused I get.

Tara: What in god’s name is so confusing?

Sally: I didn’t send any texts about phyllis. What the hell? I didn’t send that. And — yeah, I don’t have any record of a message like that on my phone. Phyllis. Oh, my god, that conniving bitch.

Tara: What? You think that phyllis sent that text from your phone?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Go wait in my suite.

Tara: Why? What are you gonna do?

Sally: I’m gonna handle phyllis.

Tessa: I don’t want to push mariah further away, but I’m worried sick.

Nina: And you weren’t reassured by her latest texts?

Tessa: Not really. Because when I texted her back to ask her to send me some clue if something were wrong, she didn’t respond, which makes me think that something is actually wrong. I can’t explain it. It’s just a gut feeling.

Nina: You have to trust your instincts.

Tessa: Mariah’s the woman i love, and I can’t stand not knowing whether she’s okay. I know you and abby want to lay off so she feels comfortable enough to come home, but I can’t do it. And if nothing else is wrong, then I’m to blame, and she’ll be furious at me, so I’m turning on this app to track her phone.

Mariah: [ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I guess I just have to look at it from your perspective. There are no windows in there, and there are no windows in here. So I guess we just have to wait. Because we are not getting out of this room. Believe me, I have tried everything. I have screamed and I’ve prayed and I’ve begged and I’ve threatened, and whoever is keeping us in here is giving us the serious silent treatment. Don’t worry, though, okay, kiddo? I’m gonna find a way to get us out of here, okay? I’m gonna get you back to your mom safe and sound…somehow.

[ Rumbling ] Here we go again. Breyers is always so delicious…

Devon: No, amanda and I have been getting closer and closer every day. She’s — she’s something special. I’ve been in awe of her lately throughout this case she’s taken on for her family, ’cause it’s just — it’s put her through a lot of emotional stress. She’s stayed really strong through it.

Abby: Well, I do have to agree with you about amanda. She is brilliant and beautiful and she is exactly what you need, in my humble opinion.

Devon: I appreciate that opinion. It’s crazy, though, to think about how she came into my life. Colin using her to try and steal my money.

Abby: Well, I would give more credit to fate than colin, and then it was up to the two of you to get past your animosity and realize that you have something special.

Devon: Yeah, that’s true. It was an odd start, but we really did connect.

Abby: I have to ask, how does she feel about your involvement with baby chancellor? I mean, especially now that the due date is getting closer.

Devon: She’s been supportive since day one, when she gave me her legal opinion about our contract.

Abby: Well, that is a huge relief because some people might not be that supportive.

Devon: No? Are you talking about anyone in particular? Maybe an ex of yours?

Abby: Ben?

Devon: Uh-huh.

Abby: No, no, ben is happy for me. And, yes, ben and I, we once shared a love for each other, but that was a long time ago. You know, and now we’ve both moved on and it’s kind of like being around an old friend. I’m actually happy that he’s gonna be moving here.

Devon: Oh, really, he is? I thought he was just here for the party and then decided to stay a little longer. He’s gonna move here?

Phyllis: Oh. Surely there’s not another problem with your bill?

Sally: What the hell is wrong with you?

Phyllis: Excuse me?

Sally: You have some serious issues and no ethical boundaries.

Phyllis: Um…I’m sorry, I’m confused. I mean, we credited your account. There should be no problem. I offered you a spa day. You know, maybe you’re stressed out. Now would be a good time to use it.

Sally: Save it. Nice really doesn’t work for you. It comes across as cloying and fake.

Phyllis: Oh, I’m sorry you feel that way.

Sally: You distracted me with that whole bogus bill charade so that you could steal my phone and send that twisted text.

Phyllis: Um…I’m sorry, I’m confused. Why would I send a text from your phone when mine works perfectly fine? Why would I do that? Um, anyway, maybe you did it and you just forgot. But what was on that text that has you so upset?

Sally: You think that you’re smarter and more devious than i am, but you are making a big mistake underestimating me.

Jack: I realize your heart is in the right place in warning me about sally, but I assure you i am going into this with my eyes wide open.

Kyle: Going into what, exactly?

Jack: She and I are having dinner together tonight.

Kyle: Okay. Well, you know how I feel. I’ve said my piece. I guess I don’t have any more proof than phyllis does that sally is involved with summer leaving, so…

[ Cellphones vibrate ] From phyllis.

Jack: Yeah, god only knows what this could be.

Kyle: Hmm, it’s a video file.

Jack: Yeah, there’s no sound. Security footage.

Kyle: Of tara and sally arguing.

Jack: About what?

Kyle: Mm, no idea, but the time stamp on the video says it was recorded in the last hour.

Jack: They’re looking at their phones. What could that be about?

Phyllis: Oh, sally. I don’t underestimate you at all. I really don’T. But I am curious why you’re so upset.

Sally: Oh, you don’t know? Okay, alright, cool. Let me show you. Give me your phone. I’d like to send a few text messages. There’s some things I’d really like to get off my chest.

Phyllis: Okay. [ Chuckles ] Okay, listen, for argument’s sake, for argument’s sake, let’s say I did send that text. Why would you be so scared?

Sally: I am not scared.

Phyllis: Oh, I think you are scared.

Sally: What you did is an invasion of privacy. I could press charges for theft.

Phyllis: What did I steal?

Sally: You impersonated me. That is identity theft.

Phyllis: Oh, please.

[ Chuckles ] But something on that text has you really freaked out. What could it be that would make you so angry? I mean, the way that you’re acting, it’s really next-level.

Sally: You know nothing about what hits me on any level.

Phyllis: I think I do. I think your buttons have been pushed. Someone’s pushed your buttons. You come clean right now. You tell me what you and tara did to my daughter.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Kyle: I hate having to question tara like this. She is the mother of my child.

Jack: I know that, but this video raises enough questions to at least warrant a conversation.

Kyle: Yeah, what if we’re jumping to conclusions?

Jack: I hope we are. But whatever’s going on, we need some answers.

Abby: Ben’s moving back because he was offered a job at the hospital. And, yes, I might remind him of a good time in his life before max’s illness, but there’s nothing more to it than that.

Devon: You sure?

Abby: I am, yeah, 100%. And actually, he’s been a happy distraction from worrying about mariah and the baby. He’s given me a lot more support than I expected.

Devon: Okay. Alright, well, hey, that’s — that’s just me being protective of you, that’s all. If you’re happy, then I am happy.

Abby: I am. Ben and I, we might have had some painful times in the past, but that’s over with. I’m actually really happy for him. I mean, it’s kind of cool that he’s moving back to genoa city. It might be the start of a new chapter in his life. And besides, how can he turn down a job like chief of surgery at memorial?

Nate: Mm.

Elena: Don’t you dare take a sip of that until you tell me what’s going on. No. What is the news? What are we celebrating?

Nate: Okay, I can share it now because the hospital board finally approved it.

Elena: Approved what?

Nate: We are about to toast to the fact that you are now sitting across the table from the new chief of surgery at memorial.

Elena: [ Inhales sharply ]

[ Gasps ]

Nina: How long does it take for the app to track mariah’s phone?

Tessa: I have no idea.

Nina: You know, I want to be perfectly clear, I have no problem with your decision. You and mariah have a special bond. I mean, anyone in the world can see how in love the two of you are.

Tessa: Thank you. I really appreciate you saying that. But, god, I’d give anything to hear her voice and see her beautiful face again.

[ Beeping ]

Nina: Does that mean it worked? Did it find mariah?

Tessa: It says her phone location is completely blocked. What does that mean?

Mariah: See, kiddo? It’s right on time. You know, the service may be lacking, but the food, it isn’t that bad. Ah, and we have a side of prenatal vitamins, no less. We have everything we need. Except an answer. Don’t panic, mariah. Don’t panic, don’t panic, please.

[ Exhales sharply ] Okay. Well, I guess I can’t really hide what I’m feeling from you ’cause you are literally growing inside my belly, can I? So we’re in this together. And we’re gonna get through this together, okay?

[ Sighs ] Who are you?! What do you want from us?! Just tell us what you want!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Brooke: So, I was wondering, did being locked up change bill at all?

Katie: [ Laughing ] You mean, did it make him more humble? Uh, no. I think it’s gonna take more than a jail cell to accomplish that. I’m kind of relieved. I mean, it’d be weird if he came back and he was all transformed.

Brooke: If will is anything like beth and douglas, I’m sure he’s thrilled to have his father home.

Katie: Yeah, he is. And bill is spending every possible moment with him.

Brooke: Same at our place. Hope and liam are really focusing on the children and making sure that they feel safe and secure.

Katie: Well, family seems to be the thing these days. Especially now with steffy and finn and their little one.

Brooke: Ridge is there right now. He can’t get enough of his little grandson.

Katie: Well, he must be really pleased at how steffy’s turned her life around since she and finn got together. Makes me wonder if there will be another wedding soon.

Ridge: To be clear, I support your relationship with finn. He’s a good guy, he loves your children, he loves you. I just didn’t like that he wanted to marry you on the couch without your–your family. It just didn’t seem right.

Steffy: Well, you know, he’s full of surprises.

Ridge: Yeah, and even though you turned down that wedding proposal, I can see in your eyes that it’s gonna happen. Am I right?

Paris: I don’t mean to put you on the spot, but you must have been a little bummed when steffy didn’t go along with your impromptu wedding.

Finn: Yeah, but I get why. She wants one with her family, and it takes a lot of time to plan. We got a lot going on right now.

Paris: Yeah, valid reasons. I still think that isn’t what you wanted to hear.

Brooke: Steffy and finn are as committed as it gets.

Katie: And now, they have a child. It’s just amazing how quickly your life can change.

Brooke: I know. If finn wasn’t working that shift at the hospital that night when steffy had her accident, they may never have met.

Katie: Well, I guess that just validates your belief in fate.

Brooke: Yes! Fate is real. If two people are destined to meet, they’re going to meet, no matter what stands in their way. I’m just happy that steffy is back on the right track, for her sake and for hope’S. Not that it was bad before. It’s just, doesn’t hurt to have a wonderful man by your side, like finn.

Ridge: Finn has made an incredible difference in your life.

Steffy: He sure has. I can’t imagine my life without him.

Ridge: And now, you have, uh, little hayes.

Steffy: I know. It just keeps getting better and better.

Ridge: You’re happy. It’s obvious.

Steffy: Yeah, I am.

Ridge: And to think…

[ Baby cooing ] What is that sound?

Steffy: The baby.

Ridge: No, no, no, it’s something else. It’s, uh…

Steffy: What sound? What are you…?

Ridge: Wedding bells. I hear it loud and clear.

Steffy: Uh-huh. Dad.

Ridge: Don’t throw stuff at me.

Steffy: I’ll throw all the toys at you.

Ridge: All right.

Steffy: [ Laughing ] What’s the #1 retinol brand

Paris: I don’t mean to be up in your business. I’m just checking on you, making sure you’re okay.

Finn: I’m good. But I appreciate your concern for steffy and me.

Paris: Well, I’m–I’m not, really. I can see that you guys couldn’t love each other any more. Especially seeing it up close? I mean, talk about relationship goals. You guys have set the bar very high.

Finn: Oh, what can I say? You know, steffy, she’s–she’s pretty easy to love.

Paris: Oh, don’t sell yourself short. You’re pretty special too.

Finn: That’s kind of you to think.

Paris: Not think, know. And I will challenge anyone who tries to say different.

[ Both laugh ]

Finn: Well, I like you, paris, and I, um, I’m glad you’re part of our lives.

Paris: I couldn’t be more grateful for your generosity. Staying with you and steffy has made all the difference. The pressure to find a place, like, now, is gone. I get to walk on the beach every day. And if that’s not enough, I get to spend time with your beautiful kids.

Finn: Oh, I know the kids are enjoying it too.

[ Door opens ]

Zende: This is the file steffy needs.

Finn: Yes, thank you, I appreciate that.

Zende: So, what’s the verdict on the new baby? Gonna keep him?

Finn: [ Laughing ] Yeah, we’re, uh, we’re leaning that way.

Zende: Paris says that hayes is something.

Finn: Well, I mean, steffy and I seem to think so. But, um, anyway, I better get back, so…

Zende: Good seeing you.

Finn: Thank you very much. Um… later?

Paris: Later.

Finn: All right.

[ Door closes ]

Zende: He’s a good guy.

Paris: Yeah. He sure is.

Katie: So, ridge approves of finn, right?

Brooke: How could he not? Finn puts a smile on her face that we haven’t seen in a long time. She is genuinely happy.

Katie: I think it’s more than that, though. She just seems… settled in a mature way, right?

Brooke: Yeah. There’s no drama. They’re sure about their future together.

Katie: Hmm. Fate.

Brooke: You said it, not me.

Katie: That’s because I know you wanted to.

[ Both laughing ]

Brooke: You tease me, but i know you believe it too.

Katie: Oh, sure, when it comes to you and ridge, absolutely.

Brooke: And you and bill.

Katie: I’m not so sure about that.

Brooke: Oh, come on. You guys will get back together, and he’ll have plenty of time to charm you.

Katie: Yeah, charm is kind of an understatement. He’S… relentless.

Brooke: Oh.

Katie: Why are we talking about me and bill? We’re talking about steffy and finn, and how happy she is now that finn is in her life.

Brooke: And baby makes four.

Katie: You know, I–I realize that steffy doesn’t need a man to define her. But he is the father of her son, he’s the stepfather to her daughter. They’re crazy about each other, so… what’s the hold up?

Ridge: My grandson’s getting better looking by the minute. And he was gorgeous to start with.

Steffy: Yeah, he’s especially cute when he’s sleeping.

Ridge: Is he not letting you sleep?

Steffy: No, not really, but we love it. And we’re taking turns. But it’s so cute seeing finn like this. This is his first experience as a dad, so… it’s nice to watch him.

Ridge: It’s sweet that… your face light up every time you talk about that guy. It’s nice. Do that again.

Steffy: What?

Ridge: Your face. Just turn that way a little bit.

Steffy: Why?

Ridge: Just do it.

Steffy: Okay, like this?

Ridge: Yeah. Why can’t I… mm, I’ve spent too long with this stuff. There it is.

Steffy: What are you doing?

Ridge: Uh, just adjusting something I’ve been working on.

Steffy: Wait. Are–wait, wait a minute. Are you…

Ridge: Nothing, just let–

Steffy: Are you designing my dress? No, let me see.

Ridge: No.

Steffy: Just let me see, dad. Please, please, please, please–

Ridge: No, hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I know you don’t like surprises, but let me have this one. Just let me finish it, ’cause we’re gonna need it sooner or later, right?

Steffy: I’m not confirming or denying anything till I talk to finn.

Ridge: All right, fair enough.

Steffy: But I do love the guy like crazy.

Finn: I hope the guy you’re referring to is me.

Steffy: Hey.

Finn: Hi.

Ridge: Well, that is my cue to leave. You guys go ahead and discuss the future.

[ Both laughing ] Love you.

Steffy: Love you. Bye, dad.

Ridge: All right.

Finn: What about the future? In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me,

Zende: You keep going back to that one.

Paris: Oh, it’s exquisite.

Zende: You really think so?

Paris: Who would know your work better than me?

Zende: Oh, I don’t know. Hope?

Paris: Okay, maybe. But I’m a close second, so i know what I’m talking about. You have completely leveled up with this one design.

Zende: I don’t see it.

Paris: Are you kidding me?

[ Scoffs ]

Zende: No, I’m still too in the details. I can’t take it all in yet because I don’t know what it’s gonna end up being.

Paris: All right, well, you go ahead and keep surpassing yourself, ’cause this is a showstopper.

Zende: Don’t tell thomas.

Paris: My lips are sealed.

Zende: You know, I’m glad that we decided to take things a little bit slower. One day at a time. This ease I feel with you, I don’t want to put that at risk.

Paris: Yeah, I–I feel the same. You know, after witnessing zoe, carter, quinn, and eric blow up, destroy their relationship to no repair, I just don’t wanna see that happen to us.

Zende: So, earlier when–when finn was here, it felt like I was walking in on something. Is everything okay at the beach?

Paris: Yeah. It’s just, you know, when you live with someone, you can pick up on nuances and whatnot. I just want the best for steffy and finn.

Brooke: I think hope will agree with your changes for the campaign. You just have to call her and schedule a meeting. Oh, but do it next week sometime, because they’re still trying to settle in with liam being back home.

Katie: Yeah, of course. I understand.

Ridge: Ladies!

Katie: Hi.

Ridge: Hey, I didn’t know you were here, how are you?

Katie: Good.

Ridge: Good.

Brooke: Wow, you’re all charged up.

Ridge: Hi, you look good.

Brooke: Mm, wow!

Ridge: I–you… do you remember going to hawaii? Do you remember that?

Brooke: Uh, yeah.

Ridge: Yeah, sitting on the beach, and–and the water was perfect, and the sand was perfect, and we’re just having a couple of drinks. And the sun is out, and we’re just having a good time. You know how that feels at night?

Brooke: I know.

Ridge: How you’re charged up, right? That’s–no, that’s how I feel when I have my little grandson. I’m–I’m holding him.

Katie: Oh, my god.

Ridge: And not that it was on the beach, but I’m just– I just felt like I’m charged up.

Katie: Grandpa is a goner.

Brooke: Wow.

Ridge: I am!

Katie: He is on the beach somewhere.

Ridge: With my boy. It’s amazing.

Brooke: Okay, well, you know what, how’s steffy?

Ridge: Steffy?

Brooke: Yes.

Ridge: I guess she’s okay. She’s okay too. I don’t–yeah, she’s good.

Brooke: Okay.

Katie: Well, we were just talking about her, how happy she is since she found finn.

Ridge: No, she is happy. It’s–it’s a good life. It’s–it’s a good life for her, she’s very happy.

Katie: They’re a real family now.

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: And finn seems like a traditional guy, so we were actually wondering why they’re not married yet. Especially now that there’s hayes.

Finn: I still can’t get over him. I mean, he’s really here. It just–it still gets me.

Steffy: I know, it’s like so much anticipation for months, then it just feels like he’s always been here.

Finn: Mm, I know, he steals my heart a little bit more each day.

Steffy: Mm-hmm. We made a good baby.

Finn: Yeah, we did. Mm, I got the file for you from the office.

Steffy: Thank you for saving me the drive.

Finn: I’m happy to do it. And you gave me a son. The least I can do is pick up some paperwork.

Steffy: It’s more than that. You’re so kind. And considerate. And you’ve been like that from the very beginning. I’m so lucky to have you in my life.

Finn: I think I’m the lucky one.

Steffy: [ Chuckles ] We’re both lucky. The way you take care of me and kelly, and the love you have for hayes… I never want to let you go.

Finn: Good. ‘Cause I won’t go anywhere.

Steffy: Good. I just wanna keep my arms around you like this, always. Till death do us part.

Finn: Wait. Are you saying what I think you’re saying?

Steffy: Mm-hmm. There are times, I wonder…

Ridge: Well, this is new. The two of you concerned about steffy.

Brooke: She’s my stepdaughter. Of course I’m concerned. I want her to be happy.

Ridge: And I’m–I’m not saying you shouldn’t be. I’m–I’m happy that you’re happy. But there was a time when she wasn’t your favorite person, right?

Brooke: Not when she was making my daughter’s life miserable.

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: So, I can’t deny I am thrilled that steffy and finn are together. Now that it takes her off the playing field for liam, everybody is happy and they’re in the right place.

Ridge: Katie, do me a favor. Can you write that down? ‘Cause that is it. This is the world according to logan.

Brooke: You know it’s true, ridge, come on. He adores steffy. And there’s no competition for his heart.

Katie: Which has got to be a relief to know where she stands with her man.

Ridge: It’s a relief for me to know that my daughter, my extraordinary, talented daughter doesn’t come second to anyone. This has nothing to do with liam, really. Maybe a little bit, but I–I’m glad that liam is with hope. And steffy should be with finn.

Brooke: Okay. Well, that takes us back to the wedding question. Now, I know that steffy doesn’t need a husband. But under all that fiery exterior and independence, I think that she wants a traditional family, you know?

Ridge: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: And the best man for her to make up that husband material is finn.

Katie: I completely agree. So, that begs the question, why hasn’t she made it official?

Ridge: I’m sorry. This is–this is fun for me.

Katie: What?

Ridge: You guys are speculating about things, and I actually have information.

Katie: You’ve been letting us go on and on and on, and you have actual intel?

Brooke: Oh, my god! Spill it already!

Ridge: You guys wanna hear it?

Katie: Yeah!

Brooke: I do!

Ridge: Okay, well I–I was over at my daughter’s house, and we were talking about weddings and marriages and stuff, and she said, “well, I need to talk to finn about that.” And… she will. So, I’m not sure about you guys, but I feel that there’s gonna be wedding bells very soon.

Brooke: [ Chuckles ]

Katie: Oh!

Brooke: [ Laughing ]

Finn: I don’t want to jump to a wrong conclusion, but when you said, “till death do us part,” sounds pretty familiar.

Steffy: What about, “do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?”

Finn: Are you serious?

Steffy: When you proposed to me, I was so happy. I accepted, and I–I put on your ring. And then we had hayes. When you wanted to get married right away, that meant so much to me. I know it probably stung when I told you I–I needed time.

Finn: Steffy, I heard you. Like, a lot has happened, you know, really fast. And… I know you just needed to catch your breath before the next life-changing event. It’s–it’s totally understandable.

Steffy: I don’t know where you came from, or how our worlds collided. But I am–I am so grateful.

Finn: Me too.

Steffy: You changed everything for me. Even the way I value myself. I’ll never doubt how much you love me, because it’S… it’s the way you show me. And I promise, I’m gonna love you… until death do us part.

[ Chuckles ] I wanna marry you, finn. And I wanna do it right away. If you still wanna marry me.

Finn: Are you serious? Yes.

Steffy: Yeah?

Finn: Steffy. I wanted that since the first moment I laid eyes on you. You say I changed everything? Look in the mirror. I am a different man. I am a better man for loving you. And I would be so honored to have this vibrant, beautiful, sexy, fearless woman that you are as my wife. Today, or tomorrow, or a hundred years from now.

Steffy: No, no, I wanna marry you right away. I wanna marry you right away. I wanna be your wife. I wanna do it right away. And I finally get to meet your parents.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

At Society, Lauren overheard Jack order a flower arrangement. He told the florist that he wanted it to be stunning – something that would match the wow factor of the woman he was buying it for. The call ended, and Lauren asked if she knew the lucky lady. She was a bit surprised when he said he and Sally were giving it another shot. He asked if she thought it was a mistake. Lauren said it wasn’t her place to decide if someone else’s relationship was a mistake, but she had no issue with him and Sally giving it another go. She was glad she gave Sally another shot at Fenmore’s. “Because without these second chances, you and I may have missed out on the phenom named Sally Spectra,” Lauren said. Sally was shining so much that Lauren was thinking of making Sally the permanent president of JCV. Lauren noticed Jack was wearing his teardrop of love cuff links, and she said maybe Dina’s stone was working its magic. He wouldn’t go that far – he and Sally were just trying to find their footing, but he said the stones seemed to be working their magic on Lauren and Michael. She said they’d never been happier. Lauren suggested that the stones brought Jack familial love – she knew how happy he was to have his grandson in his life. He spoke about the joy he got from having that boy in the house. He wished Harrison had come into their lives sooner so Dina could’ve had the chance to meet her great grandson. He thought of the necklace as signifying hope, which he had a lot of. He got to watch Harrison grow, and he got to spend time with a charming woman. He couldn’t be more grateful and happy than he was now, and he thanked Lauren for sharing the necklace with his family. Lauren and Jack wished each other joy in life.

At The Grand Phoenix, Sally complained as she examined her hotel bill and crossed off the incorrect charges. Phyllis promised that the employee at fault would get an earful from her. Sally suggested that, as the boss, the buck should stop at Phyllis. “You’re right. I am in control,” Phyllis replied. Sally went back to perusing the bill, and Phyllis deleted the text she’d sent to Tara from Sally’s phone. She then returned the phone to the table by Sally, who was none the wiser. Phyllis told Sally to put the corrected bill in the folder so that she wouldn’t be charged. Sally was adamant that she wouldn’t pay for any of these charges. “You’re right. You will only be paying for what you are responsible for. I promise you that,” Phyllis replied in a serious tone. Phyllis offered Sally a free day at the spa for her inconvenience, or maybe some training sessions with that hot trainer. Sally thought Jack might have an issue with that. Phyllis said to forget she said anything, and she repeated the offer for the spa day. Sally suggested Phyllis just owe her one and left. Phyllis’s smile faded, and she vowed to give Sally just what she was owed.

At the Abbott house, Tara was bothered by the text from “Sally” saying that Phyllis had figured out their scheme. Kyle asked about what happened with Ashland. Tara said Ashland saw her as the enemy, and he’d been impossible to reason with. She was glad Jack came home in the middle of their conversation, before things got too heated. She felt like Ashland was weaponizing telling Harrison the truth, and it was a ticking time bomb. She thought that she and Kyle should tell Harrison about Ashland’s illness. Kyle thought that Sharon had the right idea – that Tara and Ashland should be the ones to break the news to Harrison. He said this was the most important conversation they’d ever have with Harrison, and there was no reason to rush it. Tara thought Kyle could be right, and she was grateful to have him to talk to. She hoped Ashland would cool off so she could talk to him. Noticing that Tara was still anxious, Kyle asked if there was anything else bothering her.

Tara paced around and vented about her whole life being turned upside down – the affair came out, the divorce, the custody arrangement, then she found out Ashland was dying. She didn’t see true peace for her little boy in the near future. Kyle got a call that he sent to voice mail. He asked if he could do anything for her. She asked if he could watch Harrison while she went for a drive. He said no problem.

Tara arrived at the hotel with a cover story about meeting Sally for work. Tara told Sally that they should have this discussion in her suite. The ladies went to the elevator, and they weren’t aware that Phyllis was watching them on the security camera connected to her laptop. In the elevator, Tara blasted Sally for sending that text. Sally was confused. Tara refused to let Sally risk her life or her son’s. Sally said she’d only been focused on her job and Jack. Tara demanded to know what Phyllis knew that would cause Sally to send incriminating texts to Tara’s phone. Sally said she didn’t send a text, so Tara showed it to her. Sally pulled up her own phone to prove she never sent it. Sally realized Phyllis sent it. She gave Tara her key card and said to go wait in her suite while Sally handled Phyllis.

Sally went to the lobby and accused Phyllis of having no ethical boundaries. Phyllis played sweet and confused. Sally told her to save it because nice didn’t work well for Phyllis – it came across as cloying and fake. Sally said that Phyllis used that bogus bill charade to distract her so she could send that text from her phone. Phyllis pretended she didn’t know what Sally was talking about. She suggested Sally sent this text and forgot about it. She also asked what was on the text that made Sally so upset.

When Jack came home, Kyle seemed glum. Jack asked about Harrison – he was napping. Jack suggested they watch the ball game, but Kyle wasn’t in the mood. Jack asked what was going on. Kyle said Phyllis thought Tara orchestrated Summer’s exit from town. Jack had heard Phyllis’s theory. He said she had Tara in tears the other day. He didn’t know why Phyllis was compelled to stick her nose in other people’s business. It made him wonder more about her than about whether what she said was true. Kyle knew Phyllis was hurt by Summer’s sudden departure, but he thought that she seized on Tara to blame. Jack said Phyllis wouldn’t back off with Sally or Tara. Kyle revealed that Phyllis thought Tara and Sally were co-conspirators.

Jack asked if Kyle actually bought this. Kyle admitted that Phyllis briefly had him wondering if Tara was up to something. But now, he thought that was ridiculous. Jack agreed. He didn’t think Tara was capable of being that devious. Kyle wasn’t so sure about Sally, though – she did benefit from Summer leaving. Jack cut Kyle off and asked if Phyllis gave him any evidence. Kyle said Phyllis claimed she was working on finding it. Jack didn’t think Sally did anything wrong. He noted that Summer recommended Sally for the job. He knew Sally had a past, but he honestly thought she was trying to change. Kyle stated that trying wasn’t necessarily succeeding. He didn’t want to see Jack get hurt. Jack knew Kyle’s heart was in the right place, but he was going into it with his eyes open. Kyle figured that he’d said his piece, and he conceded that he didn’t have any more proof than Phyllis did about Sally being involved with Summer leaving. Phyllis sent Jack and Kyle a text of the security footage from the elevator. There was no sound in the video, so Jack and Kyle were mystified about the cause of Sally and Tara’s argument. Kyle noticed the timestamp showed that the video was recorded in the last hour. Jack commented that Sally and Tara were looking at something on the phones.

Back at the hotel, Sally told Phyllis “you think that you’re smarter and more devious than I am, but you are making a big mistake underestimating me.” Phyllis said she didn’t underestimate Sally at all. Phyllis claimed she was curious why Sally was upset. Sally asked for Phyllis’s phone to send some texts. Phyllis didn’t own up to sending the text, but she said that if she had sent it, what was in it that had Sally so scared. Sally said she wasn’t scared. She accused Phyllis of committing identity theft by impersonating her. Phyllis continued to needle Sally by asking just what was on that text. Phyllis said the way Sally was acting was next-level. Sally snarled that Phyllis knew nothing about what hit her on any level. Phyllis whispered that someone pushed Sally’s buttons. “You come clean right now. You tell me what you and Tara did to my daughter,” Phyllis said.

Tara paced around Sally’s suite. She got a text from Kyle saying they needed to talk.

Back at the Abbott house, Kyle said he hated having to question Tara like this. She was the mother of his child. Jack knew that, but that video warranted a conversation. Kyle asked what if they were jumping to conclusions. Jack hoped they were, but they needed some answers.

At Crimson Lights, Abby thanked Devon for meeting her at Society. she said he’d been his rock. He hoped that smile on her face was because Mariah had been back. She wasn’t, and Abby was just as worried as she was before, maybe more. She hoped Mariah kept her promise to come back soon. Abby was determined not to hover or nag Mariah anymore. Devon thought Abby had been concerned, not a nag. She wasn’t so sure about that. She admitted she’d considered trying to find a way to track Mariah through her phone, which would’ve been an invasion of Mariah’s privacy. She asked him to stop her if he saw her about to drive Mariah away again. He was sure things would be fine. She noted that she hadn’t asked Devon how he was feeling all that often. She asked if she’d been pressuring him. He said not at all. He was happy to be part of the journey, and he was happy to be here for her while Chance was away. She didn’t realize Chance would be away this long. She thought they’d be planning for their baby together by now. Devon assured Abby she wasn’t alone, she had him, Nina, Tessa and all the Abbotts and Newmans.

Noting that friendship went both ways, Abby asked how Devon’s life was doing. Work was good, he liked having Moses living with him, and his main source of happiness was from Amanda. He said he and Amanda were getting closer every day. Amanda was something special, and she’d stayed strong through the emotional stress her family put her through. Abby thought Amanda was brilliant, beautiful and exactly what Devon needed. Devon thought it was crazy how she came into his life – Colin tried to use her to steal his money. Abby gave more credit to fate than Colin. She said that it was then up to Amanda and Devon to get past the animosity and realize they had something special. He said it was an odd start, but he and Amanda connected. Abby asked how Abby felt about his involvement with baby Chancellor. He said she’d been supportive from the start. Abby was relieved to hear that, because some people wouldn’t act that way. Devon asked if Abby was talking about someone in particular, like an ex. Abby assumed he meant Ben, and she said he was happy for her. She said she and Ben once shared a love, but that was a long time ago, and now he was like an old friend. She was happy he was moving back to Genoa City.

Nate was on a run in the park, and he got a call with good news. Elena happened by, and he said he wanted to take her out for champagne. She noted that they weren’t date ready – he was shirtless and she was in scrubs. He said they’d go home and get ready and meet at Society. He jogged off. They arrived at the restaurant later, and he reminded her of the night he’d had good news but he wanted to wait until it was locked in. She remembered unsuccessfully trying to seduce the information out of him. She was willing to try again if she had to. He was open to that, but she jokingly threatened to kill him if he didn’t spit it out. He said he wanted to order some champagne first.

Back at Crimson Lights, Abby said Ben got a new job at the hospital, and while she might remind him of happier times, before Max’s illness, there was nothing more to it than that. Devon asked if Abby was sure, and she said a hundred percent. Ben had been a happy distraction from worrying about Mariah and the baby. Devon accepted this and said he was just being protective. Abby said she and Ben had some painful times, but that was the past. She was happy for him, and she thought this could be the start of a new chapter for him. “Besides, how could he turn down a job like chief of surgery at Memorial?,” Abby asked.

Meanwhile, at Society, Nate shared his good news with Elena. “You are now sitting across from the table from the new chief of surgery at Memorial,” Nate said.

Mariah awoke with a start in a windowless room with a single bed, dresser and desk. She held her belly and did some calming exercises to pass the serenity on to the baby. She told herself that this was all very normal and that she wasn’t agitated or claustrophobic. She went to the door, but it was still locked. She plead with her captor to let her out. “Guess we’re still prisoners,” a resigned Mariah said to the baby, when she got no response. Mariah said she’d tried everything – screaming, crying, begging and threatening, and the person keeping them in here was giving them serious silent treatment. She promised the baby that she’d get them out of there and get him back to his mom. Mariah wasn’t surprised when the dumbwaiter sent down a tray of food. It was right on schedule. She told the baby that the food wasn’t that bad. Her captor also sent her a bottle of prenatal vitamins. Mariah started to panic, and she tried to calm herself. She promised the baby that they’d get through this together. She went back to the dumbwaiter, but it was locked. She banged on it and demanded to know who this person was and what they wanted.

At the Chancellor house, Tessa quickly closed her laptop when Nina came in. With Nina’s encouragement, Tessa admitted she’d been looking up that tracking app Ben mentioned. She thought she knew enough of Mariah’s information and passwords to make it work. Tessa knew Nina and Abby were against it, but she couldn’t just do nothing, and she didn’t want Nina taking this wrong, but she wasn’t going to argue about it. Nina said Mariah and Tessa were partners, and Tessa should do what she thought was right. Tessa had sent a text asking Mariah to send a clue if something was wrong. Mariah didn’t respond, which made Tessa fear that something actually was wrong. Tessa couldn’t explain it – it was a gut feeling. Nina told Tessa to trust her instincts. Tessa tearfully said Mariah was the woman she loved, and she couldn’t stand not knowing if she was okay. Tessa knew how Abby and Nina felt, but she said that if nothing was wrong, Mariah would be furious with her, not Nina or Abby. She turned on the app to track Mariah’s phone. Tessa waited for the app to work. Nina had no problem with Tessa’s decision. She said that Mariah and Tessa had a special bond, and anyone could see how in love they were. Tessa tearfully said thanks. She said she’d do anything to hear Mariah’s voice and see her beautiful face. The app returned a message that the phone’s location was blocked.

Phyllis: Problem?

Billy: My meeting just canceled on me.

Phyllis: Mm. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

Billy: No one cancels on you.

Phyllis: No, no one ever. If you want to avoid last-minute appointment cancelations, why don’t you bring Lily? No on would cancel on her.

Billy: Oh, you’re right. No one cancels on Lily. Unfortunately, she can’t be here. She took a last-minute trip to go see Mattie. So my meeting’s canceled. I’m here all alone. Maybe we should connect and figure out what’s going on with Tara.

Sharon: Yeah, that sounds great. Maybe Adam will be back from Minnesota by then.

Faith: You mean Rey?

Sharon: Yeah. That’s what I said.

Faith: No, you said Adam.

Jack: Gee, I thought it was obvious. I — I definitely feel a connection with you.

Sally: Well, I am a woman of many talents, but mind-reading is not one of them, so I assume nothing.

Sally: Oh, “expect to get cheated and scammed.” How do you like that for a headline?

Phyllis: For what?

Sally: For the review about this hotel that I’m about to post, once I get through [Sighs] With all these bogus charges.

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Anna: Is this where Peter went? Did he hide down here before escaping? Did he escape, Finn?

Finn: No. He’s in there.

[ Indistinct chatter ]

Carly: Hmm. Ugh, you and that phone.

Josslyn: Well, it’s not like you’re free from your own, Mom.

Carly: Hey, I only use my phone to make calls, texts, and send e-mails.

Josslyn: Oh, and to spy on your children.

Carly: No, I would call that monitoring my children.

Josslyn: Oh.

Carly: So, what’s going on with you? How come you’re not hanging out with Trina and Cameron?

Josslyn: [ Sighs ] Thing is, uh — is there’s something that you should —

Spencer: Sorry to interrupt a mother-daughter moment, but I wanted to say hello.

Carly: Hello, Spencer. Josslyn told me you were back in town. So did a few of my hotel staffers.

Spencer: The attendants here were very helpful after I took an unexpected swim.

Oh, my gosh. You really should be more careful this close to the pool edge.

Josslyn: Spencer: Oh, I definitely learned my lesson.

Josslyn: Oh, one can only hope.

Trina: Hey, Mom!

[ Door creaks ]

Trina: [ Sighs ] I thought we were getting that thing fixed.

Portia: Oh, the carpenter said he’s gonna come by to repair it.

Trina: On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t fix it. That thing is better than an alarm system. I even heard it screech last night when you finally came home. The hospital is working you really late these days, huh?

[ Upbeat club music plays over speakers ]

Portia: So, when do we take this leap of faith?

Curtis: There’s no time like the present.

[ Upbeat music resumes ]

Shawn: Checking out the competition.

Curtis: Man, I have to admit, the sunset views here sure look better than mine at the nightclub.

Shawn: Yeah.

Curtis: Good to see you, man.

Shawn: Good to see you, too.

[ Laughter, chatter ]

Curtis: So, how does it feel to be a free man?

Shawn: Uh, hard to describe. The short answer is that it feels damn good.

Curtis: [ Chuckles ] Alright. What about the long answer?

Shawn: Well, freedom doesn’t always mean free from problems or challenges. I’ve still got plenty of those. Starting with my search for whoever shot Hayden. I was hoping you can help me out.

[ Knock on door ]

Officer: Commissioner? Someone’s asking to see you.

Stella: I know the officer’s only doing his job, but can you please tell him that I’m family?

Jordan: It’s all right. She is family.

Officer: Yes, Commissioner.

Jordan: Stella… [ Sighs ] What can I do for you?

Stella: You can tell me what you are doing to salvage your marriage before you lose my nephew altogether.

Elizabeth: Scott! Hi. Thank you for meeting me.

Scott: Hey. Sure, my pleasure. But — but it sounded really urgent on the phone.

Elizabeth: Yeah, um… How does the law define justifiable homicide?

Jason: Spinelli. Hacking into the security cameras bought me a little time. Thank you. Are you still there? There’s something else I need you to do.

Anna: Peter’s in the freezer.

Finn: That’s right. Peter August is dead. I killed him.

Carly: So…When did you get back to Port Charles, Spencer?

Spencer: A few days ago, but that’s no excuse. I should have come to see you before now to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I really admired Uncle Sonny. In my opinion, he was a great man. I’ll miss him.

Carly: Thank you. And the flowers you sent were beautiful.

Spencer: I only wish I could have delivered them in person, but the situation with, uh, my father marrying that woman… I know you understand.

Carly: I do understand. I do.

Spencer: [ Chuckles ] And I understand congratulations are in order. You and Jason are engaged.

Carly: We are, yeah.

Spencer: Well, I must say, this is the happy ending you both deserve.

Trina: I only stopped by to grab my tablet and head back out to the pool, so I’ll make this quick.

Portia: Okay.

Trina: The hospital’s working you way too hard. Last night, they kept you until after midnight.

Portia: Actually, I-I, um… I wasn’t working last night. I went out.

Trina: Out? Like, out-out? For fun?

Portia: Is it that impossible to believe?

Trina: Yes! By yourself?

Portia: Well, no. Terry…[ Sighs ] She invited me to go out, and I said yes.

Trina: That’s great! Better than great. Where?

Portia: Oh, here, there. You know.

Trina: Imagine if you asked me where I was, and I said that.

Portia: Okay, fine. Um, eventually, Terry and I ended up at The Savoy… with Curtis.

Curtis: Yo, man, you know, I’m no longer in the PI game, right?

Shawn: Yeah, TJ told me. But the fact is, your ex-partner is helping me with the actual investigation.

Curtis: Sam? Okay.

Shawn: Yeah.

Curtis: Um, well, Sam’s one of the best. If anybody can help you find Hayden’s shooter, it’d be Sam.

Shawn: Yeah, I’m counting on it. But I also know you did a deep dive on the case.

Curtis: Yeah, and I got exactly nowhere. You do know Hayden and I were friends before she left?

Shawn: I remember.

Curtis: Well, um, I never found a smoking gun. If I did, I would have immediately notified the cops.

Shawn: Well —

Curtis: But we never really could find who Hayden’s shooter was.

Shawn: Well, I know you were thorough, which is why I’m wondering if there was something in, you know, your old files — something that may not have even clicked back then that might mean something now.

Curtis: I’ll revisit my old records, see what I can find. It’s the least I can do.

Shawn: Thanks, man. Look, I just want you to know that I know you’ve already done plenty, and I’m grateful.

Jordan: My marriage is not open for discussion, and this conversation is over.

Stella: [ Sighs ] I’m sorry, Jordan, but if it takes a little tough love to get you to follow your heart —

Jordan: I followed it. Just like you encouraged. I went to go find Curtis to tell him that if he wanted to roll up his sleeves and make this marriage work, that I would be right beside him.

Stella: Oh, now you’re talking. Did you find him?

Jordan: Oh, I found him alright. At The Savoy. I also found the answer I was looking for… and it wasn’t the answer that you or I wanted.

Scott: Alright, Elizabeth, just a little piece of advice — if you’re gonna talk about justifiable homicide, you should do it when there’s, you know — there’s — nobody’s near you. I mean, to your lawyer.

Elizabeth: Okay, well, nobody’s near us now, so —

Scott: Yeah, I think it should still be a little hush-hush.

Elizabeth: [ Sighs ]

Scott: Now, just between you and me… what kind of trouble are you in?

Elizabeth: No, this isn’t about me. This is about —

Scott: Oh, right.  [ Sighs ] A friend, right? 99% out of 100%, when somebody says, “it’s about a friend,” there never is a friend.

Elizabeth: Well, this time, there is.

Scott: Okay, alright. You’re gonna stick to your story. You want to take me for a buggy ride? Fine. So, this friend — why did they kill whoever it was that they killed?

Elizabeth: Desperation. Uh, outrage. The thing is, is that my friend didn’t mean to kill this other person.

Scott:  So it was self-defense.

Elizabeth: Well…[ Stammers ] No.

Scott:  Okay, okay, okay. First things first, Elizabeth.  [ Sighs ] You didn’t kill anybody?

Elizabeth: Scott, no! This isn’t about me.

Scott: Yes, it is about you, Elizabeth. I’m sorry to snap at you, but if you know that your friend killed somebody or anything about it, that makes you an accessory to murder.

Finn: After all the lives that Peter destroyed, is it really that hard to believe he’d meet a violent death?

Anna: No, I mean, I’m not having trouble believing that he was killed. I’m having trouble believing that you did it.

Finn: [ Sniffs ] Believe it, because it’s true. I’m the one who found Peter on the roof waiting for a helicopter to try to help him escape. I pleaded with him.

Peter: Stay out of my way, Finn. My daughter’s out there.

Finn: And my son is dying downstairs. Give me what I need to save him.

Finn: I confronted him about Chase.

Peter: I don’t know what to tell you, Finn… except if Chase dies… blame Anna.

Finn: His answer was to throw the antidote off the roof.

Finn: No!

Finn: And then he tried to leave, and I…

Finn: You’re not walking out —

Finn: I couldn’t let that happen.

Peter: Get off of me! Aaaah!

Finn: So, yeah. It’s all true. I killed Peter August. I threw him face-first down a flight of stairs. He hit his head hard on the way down. He died.

Anna: I’m sorry.

Finn: That I killed him?

Anna: No. That you’ve had to bear the weight of what you did.

Finn: Yeah, well… it goes against everything that I stand for. But if I had to face Peter on that roof again… under the circumstances… I wouldn’t do a damn thing different.

Spencer: You and Jason will be perfect life partners. And I hope it’s not presumptuous of me to say that I think that Uncle Sonny would have approved.

Carly: Thank you.

Spencer: I guess there’s something safe and familiar about falling in love with a friend. How to explain how Joss and Cam wound up together.

Josslyn: Spencer!

Carly: Joss and Cam? What?

Josslyn: Well, yes, that’s —

Spencer: I know, I can’t believe it, either. I mean, it’s certainly true that they’ve known each other most of their lives, but I’ve always credited Joss with a more adventurous spirit. I would figure that, you know, she’d be drawn more to someone that’s… what? You haven’t told your mother?

Carly: [ Gasps ]

Josslyn: [ Sighs ]

Carly: Josslyn!

Josslyn: God, I wish he’d stayed in Italy.

Spencer: [ Gasps ]

Trina: Oh, so you and Terry had a drink with Curtis?

Portia: No. No, sweetheart. Um, Terry encouraged me to seek out Curtis, and I did.

Trina: Oh, so, you and Curtis…

Portia: It’s a new thing — for both of us.  [ Laughs ] You know I haven’t really dated that much since me and your father split up — at least never seriously, right?

Trina: And never, ever talking to me about it.

Portia: Did you want me to stop?

Trina: I didn’t say that.

Portia: Well, Curtis and I, we really enjoy each other’s company. You must have noticed that.

Trina: I knew you were close. I mean, Curtis called the night Cyrus took us hostage and wound up coming to our rescue. And when Curtis was shot, we kept vigil at G.H. So, I mean, it makes everything make sense.

Portia: But my interest in Curtis, I-I mean, it’s not because he risked his life to save us. It’s because of the man that he is. I like being with him, and I’d like to spend more time with him.

Trina: So…?

Portia: How are you feeling about all that?

Shawn: You know, one of the toughest things about prison was being locked away from TJ. Sure, he was on the right track and doing well in school, but he was also at a pivotal point in his life, and it’s easy for a young man to lose his way, you know, turn down the wrong road. TJ needed guidance and a strong role-model, and since I wasn’t able to be there for him, you were.

Curtis: [ Sighs ] Man.

Shawn: I’m just thankful you came to Port Charles when you did.

Curtis: One of the best moves I ever made.

Shawn: Nah, man. You’ve always been a real good friend. You know, someone I can count on and turn to. Despite what happened with Tommy.

Curtis: Uh, we all made a lot of mistakes back in the day. I don’t know anyone blameless.

Shawn: Man, those mistakes could have easily put a wedge in between us, but you didn’t let it. No, you made the friendship more important. You made it a point to always be there for me and TJ… and I just want to say thank you, truly. You’re a good man.

Curtis: That means a lot coming from you. Much respect.

Shawn: Cheers, brother.

Curtis: Cheers.

Scott: Uh, Elizabeth, for it to be justifiable homicide, the person that committed the crime would have to prove that he was in a situation where it was kill or be killed.

Elizabeth: I see. But what if —

Scott: I also recall coming to visit a friend of yours that, uh, was afraid that they were gonna be hauled in for questioning on the disappearance of Peter August. And I know that that friend was very important to you.

Elizabeth: Okay, um, so, what if that friend needed your help?

Scott: It would be a conflict of interest.

Elizabeth: What conflict?

Scott: Elizabeth, you are my top priority. I will do everything in my power to protect you. So, now, you’ve got to tell me what’s going on so that I can help you out of this mess that you’re in before it’s too late.

Jason: Spinelli. Did you find it?

Anna: Whatever happened, I-I know you’re not a murderer.

Finn: A jury of my peers might disagree.

Anna: You confronted Peter. You shoved him. He fell down the stairs, and he hit his head. You tried to help him, didn’t you?

Finn: I checked for breathing. And a pulse. There was nothing. There was… nothing I could do. He was gone.

Anna: And you’re certain?

Finn: Yeah, well, you know, I didn’t spend a lot of time lingering over the body, alright? I had other priorities, like trying to keep Chase alive.

Anna: And you didn’t feel you could come to me?

Finn: Knowing Peter was dead wasn’t gonna bring you any closer to finding Louise. And I couldn’t risk leaving Violet without a father. Her mother already abandoned her. How could I leave her, too?

Josslyn: [ Sighs ]

Spencer: This is getting annoying.

Josslyn: Oh, tell me about it. What the hell is wrong with you?

Spencer: How was I supposed to know that you were keeping your romance a secret from your mother?

Josslyn: Mm.

Spencer: I thought you two shared everything.

Josslyn: Oh, we do. In fact, I was just about to tell her before you had to open your big mouth! God, remind me to tell Trina to not even waste her time with you. She is so out of your league.

Carly: Okay, here.

Spencer: Thank you.

Carly: You’re in town five minutes and you’re already causing trouble?

Spencer: Yeah.

Carly: Excuse me, please. I want to talk to my daughter. Sit down.

Josslyn: [ Sighs ]

Carly: You have got to stop pushing that kid in the pool.

Josslyn: Yes, I know.

Carly: I’m serious. It’s a safety regulation, okay? Stop.

Josslyn: I’m sorry. And I’d love to promise that it won’t happen again, but if Spencer is sitting close to a pool edge running his mouth about something that is none of his business —

Carly: Find another way to shut him up, okay? Because if Spencer hits his head, Nikolas will sue me.

Josslyn: Okay. But he is a jerk, and he totally deserved the dunking.

Carly: I agree with you on that.

Josslyn: [ Sighs ] I hope Trina stays away from him.

Carly: Okay, what do you want to talk about first? Trina and Spencer, or you and Cameron?

Trina: Okay, I’m not sure what’s happening here. Are you asking me for dating advice? Because that would be weird.

Portia: Oh, don’t worry. I’m not asking for your advice. And I’m definitely not asking for your permission. But I do want to know how you feel about it. I mean, do you have a problem with me dating Curtis?

Trina: Uh… [ Stammers ]

Portia: You can be honest with me.

Trina: Mom, all I want is for you to be happy.

Portia: [ Chuckles ] But?

Trina: It’s just, how long have you and Curtis — I-I mean, I saw the signs and thought something was there. Was I right?

Portia: Well, Curtis and I — I-I-I mean… yes. Yes, we have feelings for each other. But it wasn’t until last night that we decided to own up to those feelings and see where this is gonna go.

Trina: Any idea where that might be? Going, I mean.

Portia: Not yet, but I’ll keep you posted. [ Chuckles ]

Trina: Thanks.

Portia: You know, I just wanted to tell you first. I don’t want you hearing it from anybody else, you know?

Trina: I’m glad you told me.

Portia: What? What? What is it?

Trina: It’s just, does Commissioner Ashford know? Because I thought you two were friends.

Jordan: I walked into The Savoy just in time to see Curtis and Portia in…a close moment.

Stella: Oh, I see. How close?

Jordan: Close enough that their lips were touching.

Stella: I see. [ Sighs ] What did you do?

Jordan: What else? I left.

Stella: You just walked away?

Jordan: What was I supposed to do? Pull out my sidearm and tell them to freeze?

Stella: [ Sighs ] Jordan, I understand you’re hurt, angry. But let’s face it, Portia and Curtis share a past, and that can be a powerful draw. On second thought, maybe you did the right thing by leaving. This way, I can have a talk with Curtis — or Portia. Maybe I’ll just sit them both down.

Jordan: Stella, stop. Please, just let this go. Our marriage didn’t work. Curtis moved on. And now I need to move on, too.

Curtis: Look, I could never replace you. Or — or Tommy, for that matter. But I did the very best I could to be a father figure to TJ for as long as I could. That is until, you know, things between Jordan and I.

Shawn: Yeah, well, I was, uh — I was sorry to hear you two were splitting up. But just because the marriage is ending doesn’t diminish the family you helped create. Hey, you want proof? Look no further than TJ and Molly. I wouldn’t be here now if Molly hadn’t called out Judge Carson for targeting defendants of color. [ Chuckles ] Those kids are a hard act to follow.

Curtis: You got that right. Sometimes, I think, uh — I think TJ is the man I’ve always wanted to be.

Shawn: [ Chuckles ] All we can do is try, right?

Curtis: [ Chuckles ]

Shawn: Yeah. Well, in the meantime, besides running the hottest club in town, now what else is new in your life, man?

Curtis: The nightclub has me busy most nights. So, in the afternoons, I come here to recharge.

Shawn: Yeah, uh, there are definitely worst places.

Curtis: [ Chuckles ] You know, Shawn, tell me if I’m out of line, but, um, after you track down the person who’s responsible for Hayden’s shooting, what happens next?

Shawn: Well, I’m keeping my options open. Why?

Curtis: Because of The Savoy. That’s my baby, and I’m working to assemble a team that I can trust.

Shawn: Mm-hmm.

Curtis: And I could certainly use a man with your skills.

Scott: So, if your friend killed who I think they did, they should be given the keys to the city. But it’s not about what’s right. It’s about the law.

Elizabeth: Shouldn’t those two things be the same?

Scott: [ Sighs ] Well, theoretically. But, Elizabeth, the longer you stay quiet, say nothing, you know, you’re committing a crime. So, you need to tell me w-w-what’s going on so I-I can help you here.

Elizabeth: Don’t you think I would if I could? There are other lives involved, other people who would suffer if I came forward.

Scott: Really? So, this friend, he really means a lot to you?

Finn: Think I probably owe you an apology.

Anna: For what?

Finn: Being so hard on you about keeping things from me. [ Scoffs ] I never imagined myself living in a glass house and throwing stones.

Anna: It’s — it’s not the same thing.

Finn: Don’t let me off the hook.

Anna: I really wish I could. So, I-I — I need to ask you a question.

Finn: Go ahead.

Anna: So, you — you confronted Peter on the roof, and you pushed him. He fell down the stairs, and he hit his head. And then what? You — you transported him here?

Finn: Yeah, that about sums it up.

Anna: Okay. How? You couldn’t have done it alone.

Josslyn: Cam and I just started… you know, seeing each other, and I didn’t want to say anything until I knew there was something worth saying something about.

Carly: Okay. That’s weird — and great! And I’m happy for you. You’re happy, right? As long as you’re happy.

Josslyn: Yeah.

Carly: Does your dad know?

Josslyn: Not yet. And, please, you know, let me tell him.

Carly: I’m not gonna say anything. I won’t. I won’t.

Josslyn: Great.

Carly: You know that you can come to me about anything, right?

Josslyn: Yeah, I know. I know that. And I want you to know that this came as a surprise to me and Cam, too. I mean, Trina’s told us that we were the last people to know.

Carly: Yes, that does happen sometimes.  [ Laughs ]

Josslyn: Is that what happened between you and Jason?

Portia: I don’t want to hurt Jordan. And I hope that we can find a way to remain friends through this. But before I speak with her — which I most certainly will do — it was just so important that I speak to you about it first.

Trina: I’m glad you told me. I was expecting to get my tablet and be on my way, but this was kinda nice.

Portia: I’ll take “kinda nice.”

[ Both laugh ]

Portia: Well, I hope everything works out for you. Or, I hope everything you want to happen, happens. Is that good?

Portia: That’s good. I’ll take that, too.

Trina: Well, I texted Joss I’d meet her, so…

Portia: Yeah, no, no. Go, go, go. Have fun. But you know what? I just — I just — I’m just so glad we were able to have this talk. You’re gonna be living on campus soon, and it’s just important that we keep this line of communication open. Right?

Trina: Right.

[ Door closes ]

Portia: [ Exhales sharply ] That went better than I thought it would.

Trina: [ Sighs ]

Shawn: Well, what kind of, uh, skills are you looking for? A bouncer for the velvet rope?

Curtis: [ Laughs ] Nothing like that.

Shawn: Ah.

Curtis: But I’m pretty sure you’d be good at that, too.

Shawn: Mm-hmm.

Curtis: I’m looking for somebody to help me run the place, and I hear you have managerial experience.

Shawn: At Kelly’s.  A diner, not a nightclub.

Curtis: Okay, obviously, there are some differences, but the way I see it, what you don’t know, you could learn on the job.

Shawn: Oh, man, I — look, I appreciate the offer.

Curtis: I-I know what you’re gonna say. But I’m telling you this right now — this isn’t a handout. You would actually be helping me, because I need somebody that I can trust.

Shawn: Ahhh… I want to say yes.

Curtis: Then say it.

Shawn: But, look — if you’re looking for something long term, I can’t give you that. My plans are to find whoever shot Hayden, and after that’s done, I need to figure out what kind of work I really want to do. You know? What kind of life I want to lead. But all I do know that’s for certain is, I’m my own boss, man.

Curtis: I get it. Having owned my own PI firm, now owning a nightclub, both mean one thing — I’ve been my own boss, so I see why you want the same. But, um, what you’re talking about, these are future plans, correct?

Shawn: Well, there’s no actual plans yet.

Curtis: Right. So, until you put those plans in place, I could sure use you at The Savoy.

Shawn: Just a couple of friends helping each other out, huh?

Curtis: That’s what friends are for.

Shawn: Ehhh… then I accept.

Curtis: Alright. Welcome to the team.

Shawn: Alright, alright. When I should start?

Curtis: Brother, you can start when you get ready.

Shawn: Damn, man. I wasn’t expecting to get out… [ Sighs ] …For a long time. But all of a sudden… here I am.

Curtis: And I’m here for you, when you’re ready.

Elizabeth: My friend needs help. I’m not gonna turn on him.

Scott: Okay, Elizabeth. I mean, I-I admire your loyalty. I do, I really do. But I — my advice to you is to just stay quiet. Don’t talk to anybody, because justifiable homicide does not apply in this particular crime. So, if the police come knocking at your door, dummy up and call me. Is that understood?

Elizabeth: Understood.

Finn: Peter and I were alone on the roof when I confronted him. What happened after that is on me, and no one else.

Anna: I hear what you’re saying. But, um, like I told you, if my instincts led me to you, odds are the PCPD won’t be far behind. And the more I know, the more I can help you.

Finn: I told you everything.

Anna: If you did have help, it’s understandable that you’d want to protect them.

Finn: There’s no one else. So there’s nothing left to say. Once you open this freezer, you’ll see what I did.

Carly: Well, it was a little different for me and Jason.

Josslyn: Well, I know you guys have been friends forever.

Carly: Yeah, for more than half our lives.

Josslyn: If we’re talking percentages, Cam and I have been friends pretty much all our lives. And, I mean, if it took you guys that long to figure it out, I guess it’s kind of the same.

Carly: Yeah, we could, like, all wear matching outfits and stuff.

Josslyn: Oh, my god, no.

Carly: [ Laughing ]

Josslyn: Thank you for the offer, but I’ll pass.

Shawn: It’s too bad you two don’t get along.

Josslyn: Oh!

Carly: Never have. Never will.

Carly: Oh! I wanted to come say hi, but you and Curtis seemed like you were having a very important discussion.

Shawn: Oh, it was.

Carly: Okay.

Josslyn: Well, I’ve gotta run, but not before I do this.

[ Both chuckle ]

Josslyn: Yeah. Please don’t tell me I’m all grown up now.

Shawn: Well, even if you are? [ Stammers ]

Josslyn: I know. It has been a while.

Shawn: A minute or two, yeah.

Josslyn: Stop, you’re gonna make me cry at the pool. Okay, bye.

Carly: Bye.  [ Laughs ]

Shawn: Well, she has grown all up.

Carly: Oh, god, you don’t know the half of it.

Shawn: Well, I’d love to hear what I’ve missed.

Carly: And I would love to share that with you. But first, I want to talk about you and your future and hoping that it has something to do with me and my family.

Joss: Where have you been? What’s going on?

Trina: Oh, my god, Joss. You’re not gonna believe this.

Spencer: Believe what?  [ Sighs ] I’m already enthralled.

Trina: On second thought, maybe this was a bad idea.

Josslyn: Huh. No argument here.

Trina: [ Sighs ]

[ Door creaks ]

Portia: Please. [ Chuckles ]

Curtis: Hi. Um, what the hell is that?

Portia: Oh, just a little souvenir from when you kicked the door in.

Curtis: Oh, right. Sorry about that.

Portia: Don’t be sorry. You saved our lives.

Jordan: Signed, sealed… and on its way to be delivered to the courthouse.

Stella: Feel better now?

Jordan: Actually, yes. I do. Curtis is free. [ Sighs ] I’m free. And now there’s no more looking back, no more asking myself what might have been.

Stella: [ Sighs ] I thought my nephew meant more to you.

Jordan: Stella. [ Scoffs ]  I love Curtis. And at one point, he loved me, too. But our marriage didn’t work. So, once those papers are filed… the rest of my life can finally begin.

Jason: Elizabeth, can I, uh, talk to you for a second?

Scott: Whoa, wait. Whoa, whoa. Hang on a second. Is this your friend? ‘Cause he’s got his own lawyer.

Elizabeth: No, no, it’s not Jason.

Scott: Okay, that’s good.

Elizabeth: W-we need to just — we need to talk about something else.

Scott: Okay. You do know, Jason, if anything happens to her, I will —

Jason: I know, I know. I’m gonna have to answer to you.

Scott: Yeah, you will.

Elizabeth: Thank you for meeting me. I’ll call you.

Scott: Okay. Bye, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: Okay.

[ Lock clicks ]

Elizabeth: Did you get my message? I think Anna knows about Peter. Please tell me you got to his body before she did.

Anna: I was afraid someday that I was going to have to identify Peter’s body. You know, that is, if I… I didn’t end his life myself. Really is the only two ways… that this could have played out.

Finn: I guess I saved you the trouble.

Anna: For as much as he hated Faison, he turned out the same way. Choices he made… led him here.

Shawn: Well, Curtis and I had a conversation, and I think I’m gonna help him out at The Savoy.

Carly: [ Sighs ] Okay. Well, I’m really happy for Curtis, but I’m sad for Jason and me. We could really use your expertise.

Shawn: Okay, I have no doubt you can handle whatever comes up.

Carly: [ Laughs ]

Shawn: Especially since you and Jason are, uh…[ Clears throat ] …In it together?

Carly: Yes, we are, and we’re very happy.

Shawn: [ Laughs ]

Carly: [ Laughs ] And while I’m sure you will make The Savoy even more successful, I want you to know that you always have a place with us.

Shawn: Well, I’ll remember that.

Carly: And thank you for stabbing Jason.

Shawn: Oh, anytime.

[ Both laugh ]

Josslyn: You know, I promised my mom I’d stop pushing Spencer in the pool because it’s dangerous, but I can make an exception.  What did he do to you?

Spencer: I tried to prevent Trina from making a fool of herself by attempting to “Parent Trap” Ava and my father.

Josslyn: “Parent Trapping”? How?

Trina: I sent them each a drink and had the server tell them they were from each other.

Josslyn: That’s a great idea.

Trina: I know, right? And it would have worked if Mr. I’m-Not-A-Fan-Of-My-Stepmother hadn’t outed me and ruined it.

Spencer: That’s it. I’m done trying to help people.  Au revoir.

Josslyn: Ciao, loser.  [ Sighs ]

Trina: So, how did Spencer try to help you? Or am I reading that wrong?

Josslyn: Oh, no. He helped me alright. He told my mom about me and Cameron literally seconds before I was going to.

Trina: Oh, how did she take it?

Josslyn: I mean, it was fine, but it’s awkward.

Trina: I feel you. You know what’s even more awkward? When your mom opens up to you.

Curtis: And Trina was okay with it?

Portia: She seemed to be, yes.

Curtis: You told her it was me?

Portia: I did.

Curtis: I mean me, not some other Curtis.

Portia: No, no. She knew the Curtis I was speaking of, yes.

Curtis: Okay, so, when you told her that we were gonna start “seeing each other,” are you sure she knew what you meant?

Portia: I was very clear.

Curtis: Huh.

Portia: Which was, I don’t know, kind of new. [ Chuckles ] Not just because I haven’t really dated much since Marcus and I split, but because she’s my little girl, you know?   And yet, she’s not anymore. She’s a grown woman.

Curtis: Mm-hmm.

Portia: And instead of, like, her always confiding in me, it’s — it was kind of like we’re confiding in each other, you know?

Curtis: Right. And how does that make you feel?

Portia: Good. It felt really good. Like my daughter and I are actually, I don’t know, becoming friends. And I could really use one of those right about now.

Curtis: [ Sighs ] I assume you’re thinking about Jordan.

Portia: Aren’t you?

Curtis: Yeah. Uh, I’m thinking that I’d better tell her about us before she finds out some other way.

[ Knock on door ]

Officer: Commissioner, you’re wanted in interrogation.

Jordan: Thanks. And thank you, Stella, for your concern.  [ Sighs ] But I do have to ask you to just —

Stella: I know, I know. You want me to mind my own business.

Jordan: I do.

Stella: Then I will. And, please, don’t worry about me. I’ll show myself out.  [ Sighs ] One thing you should know by now, Jordan… my family is my business. Oh, lord, forgive me. But it’s for a good cause.

Finn: I knew this moment would come. The whole end of the road, getting caught thing. But now that it’s here, I’m almost relieved. I’m glad it was you.

Anna: Yeah. Let’s not put it off any longer, then. Ready?

Finn: Yeah.

Jason: Yes, I did get your message. I did not cross paths with Anna. Spinelli was able to take care of the security cameras so I could get to the basement unseen. But once I got into the lab —

Elizabeth: Just tell me what you did with the body.

Jason: Nothing. I opened the freezer, Peter’s body isn’t there.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Portia (to Curtis): How is this something Trina needs to know?

Jordan (to Dante): Did Anna tell you what she’s doing to follow up?

Josslyn (to Trina): Proceed with caution.

Anna (to Finn): Are you absolutely certain that Peter was dead?

Gladys (to Sasha): You put my son up to this, didn’t you?

Brando: What’s your third wish?

Laura (to Carly):  Are you having second thoughts?

Elizabeth (to Jason): Is there a way to find out?

Jason: There is.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Phyllis: Wow, look at you. You walk in here, accusing me of things. You better tell me what it is.

Kyle: I don’t like these head games you’re playing with tara.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Excuse me?

Kyle: Pretending to be her friend when you’re anything but. What’s your angle? What are you trying to accomplish? I understand you’re upset that summer left town, feel the need to find a scapegoat, but you’ve already laid blame on me and the child I refuse to walk away from. Even hinted that I might be interested at starting things up again with his mom, which isn’t even remotely true, so stop taking your anger out on tara because you don’t trust me.

Phyllis: No, it’s tara i don’t trust.

Kyle: Oh, why the hell not?

Phyllis: Kyle, seriously? Do I need to paint a picture for you? Her wealthy husband kicked her out. Now she’s looking for another powerful, wealthy family to latch onto for her and her kid.

Kyle: I am that little boy’s father, and we invited tara to stay.

Phyllis: You invited her to stay because she orchestrated it that way.

Kyle: Oh, damn it, phyllis, that’s —

Phyllis: She’s taking advantage of your generosity. She’s taking advantage of your love for your son. Can you not see that? And tara, I believe, is the person that drove my daughter out of town.

Nikki: Should we order some dessert, darling?

Summer: Oh, my gosh, no. I am so stuffed. The food here is amazing. You know, I debate taking a long lunch every day while I’m at work, even though it’d be very unprofessional of me.

Victor: Of course you don’t, do you?

Summer: No, no, of course not. No, you saw how serious and driven everyone is at marchetti, which I’m so happy that you guys were able to tour the offices.

Nikki: It’s a very impressive operation.

Summer: Right, it is first rate from top to bottom — the resources, the design team, the clients. Oh, which, speaking of, you guys won’t believe who popped in for a fitting last week.

Nikki: Oh, um…european royalty?

Summer: So close. Leslie brooks! She’s actually gonna be wearing one of our gowns for the performance that you guys are going to see.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness. Now I really can’t wait.

Summer: [ Laughs ] Um, also, I’m sorry that you guys didn’t get to meet angelina marchetti while you toured the studio. She’s off traveling, so next time you guys visit, we will for sure make that happen.

Victor: Now, sweetheart, as wonderful as all that sounds, i remember that when you were offered to come to milan, you know, leave genoa city, you went through a difficult time, didn’t you? Have you had any second thoughts about your decision to move away?

Sally: Well, hello there, stranger.

Jack: “Stranger”? Has it been that long?

Sally: I guess not.

Jack: Have a seat. So, how’s your day going so far?

Sally: Good. I just keep thinking about the dinner we had the other night. I really had a great time.

Jack: So did I.

Sally: I miss spending time with you like that. But it is obvious that kyle wasn’t too happy about it because he made that very clear when I ran into him.

Jack: My son has a protective streak when it comes to me. And given certain aspects of your history, I think that’s understandable. In the end, when all is said and done, kyle just wants me to be happy.

Sally: Well, what a coincidence. I want the exact same thing.

Jack: How about that.

Sally: Given the lovely evening that we had and feeling so connected to you again, i can’t help wondering… where do we go from here?

Tara: First of all, I would never try to keep you and harrison from seeing each other. It’s not fair to him.

Ashland: But having sole custody for you is.

Tara: I didn’t ask you here for that. We need to talk about how we’re gonna break the news to harrison about your illness.

Ashland: Oh, and you’re willing to do that for me? That’s very big of you.

Tara: I spoke to a therapist, sharon rosales, and I’d like to share with you what she said about the subject.

Ashland: Yeah, through your filter, no doubt.

Tara: With a child harrison’s age, sharon said it would be best if we were honest and forthright, that we shouldn’t treat your cancer or diagnosis like it was something scary to be hidden away. Illness and death are a part of life, and harrison is old enough to grasp that. We should use language that he can understand when we explain things, and we just need to keep reminding him that we love him and that he has this whole family here that supports him.

Ashland: Well, everything that you’re saying makes sense.

Tara: Good.

Ashland: And we will sit down and have a talk with harrison together, after I speak with him alone.

Tara: Ashland.

Ashland: This news is gonna be devastating enough for him. Let’s not confuse him about where things stand between you and me, give him false hope that we’re a couple again.

Tara: This will be a huge moment. He’ll be upset. I doubt he’s even gonna be thinking about that.

Ashland: A small child whose parents are in the throes of divorcing? I guarantee you that’s going to be part of the calculus.

Tara: I am harrison’s mother. We need to tell him together. It’s what the therapist advised.

Ashland: But this is our decision, and this is my illness. Why are you fighting me on this?

Tara: I am just trying to do what’s best for harrison.

Ashland: Oh, come off it, tara. The only one that you’re thinking about now is yourself.

Victoria: This is a surprise.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, I hope you don’t mind. I just want to stop by and talk to you about how the kids are handling the situation with ashland living here.

Victoria: Is there something going on that I should know about? Johnny have another tummy ache?

Billy: No, he’s feeling better. In fact, he’s back at day camp today.

Victoria: Oh, good. That’s good. Listen, thank you. I appreciate you working with me to make this okay for them and letting them spend the majority of their time with you and lily, at least for the time being.

Billy: We love having them. Before I forget, I saw you and nate talking. I’m assuming you were discussing ashland’s condition.

Victoria: It’s funny you should ask, because I happen to know you spoke to him yourself about the exact same thing.

Billy: I don’t know where you’re getting your information from.

Victoria: You were quizzing nate about an anonymous friend with the exact same symptoms as ashland. What are you doing, billy? Why would you do that? Are you planning another tasteless invasion of the man’s privacy? Or are you truly that concerned about ashland’s condition?

Billy: The person I’m concerned about in all of this is you. Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

Jack: Gee, I thought it was obvious. I — I definitely feel a connection with you.

Sally: Well, I am a woman of many talents, but mind-reading is not one of them, so I assume nothing.

Jack: Okay, fair enough. Um…when I’m with you, there is just a certain ease. You’re certainly easy on the eyes. But you’re intelligent and you’re witty and you’re a fighter. And I admire that, even if that sometimes is to your detriment.

Sally: That’s all too true.

Jack: I’m willing to give us another shot. See where this thing goes.

Sally: Sounds good to me. Although there will be people that won’t be as excited.

Jack: Well, they can have their opinions. I make my own decisions. I’m willing to give this another shot because I think you’re worth it. I hope you believe that. Your smarts, your talents are enough to get you anywhere you want to go in life.

Sally: Well, that hasn’t always been my experience, but…when you say it, I… believe it.

Jack: Good, I’m glad.

Sally: Being on the defensive all the time, feeling like you’ve got to fight to hold on to what you’ve got, it’S… it’s exhausting. And I really don’t want to do it anymore. But I know that I have to win back your trust, so that’s my goal.

Jack: Happy as I am to hear that, I do not want you feeling like you’re on trial.

Sally: Okay, well, then maybe if we went on another date, I could relax.

Jack: Well, why don’t I make some arrangements, and I’ll give you a call.

Sally: I can’t wait.

Kyle: Let’s say you’re right. Tara forced summer to break up with me and leave town. How’d she do it? Where’s your proof? ‘Cause surely you have some.

Phyllis: Nah, no proof.

Kyle: Yeah, that’s what i thought.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Let me tell you something. No, I don’t have proof right now. I don’T. But when I get it, kyle, you’ll be the first person I come to, okay? And I really didn’t want to have this conversation with you right now, but you sort of forced my hand, but I’m not mad. I’m not mad because this is on your radar. Thank goodness. Tara is the reason that my daughter felt the need to break off your engagement and fly on the other side of the ocean.

Kyle: Summer said that to you? Or is this just you, twisting things to fit the story you’ve concocted?

Phyllis: Oh, yeah, how dare you. How dare you. Summer is my daughter. I know her better than anyone. She would’ve never done this. She was forced. I know that. She was forced, and you know what? She didn’t even want me to do this and uncover the truth, but I’m doing it. I don’t care what she says. She’s the one who told me to stop.

Summer: Uh, second thoughts about…?

Victor: Well, you know, severing ties and pulling up stakes.

Nikki: This job offer came out of the blue. You barely had any time to think about it.

Summer: I mean, european haute couture is very hard to break into, so who needed time, really? Okay, yeah, that came out wrong. Now that I’m in italy, yeah, of course I miss my family and genoa city and, yeah, yes, I miss kyle. I am not gonna deny that, but I still think I made the right choice. I wasn’t ready to be a stepmom. I wasn’t ready to deal with kyle’s ex being a constant presence. It was just — it was too much. You know? And I’m sure that kyle is happy to be with his son, and I had to do what was right for me.

Victor: So you think you made the right decision?

Summer: Yeah, absolutely. Right, this is an amazing opportunity, and I feel like I’m at peace with everything.

Victor: Well, then I’m glad to hear that.

Nikki: Me, too.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Victor: I’m sorry, but I need to take that.

Summer: Of course.

Victor: Excuse me. Yes? No, I’m still in milan. Did you get the estimate? Yeah?

[ Door closes ]

Nikki: Well, everything you’ve said sounds reasonable, but it’s just the two of us now, and I want you to be completely honest. Is this really the life you want? With voltaren arthritis pain gel

Kyle: Sorry, no way do i believe tara somehow manipulated summer into leaving. Why would she say she didn’t love me? Why not fight for what we had?

Phyllis: Kyle, listen, this may be difficult for you, but i want you to look back on all the conversations that you had with my daughter. When you decided to move tara and her kid into your house while you were working out a wedding with my daughter? Think over all those conversations and what she said that maybe you didn’t hear at the time.

Kyle: No, no! No. I am letting you do this. I have spent weeks going over every moment I shared with summer, things I could’ve missed or done wrong, trying to find a clue as to explain what happened. I even blamed sally for it.

Phyllis: Okay, stop right there. You’re spot on with sally. You are spot on. I want you too look at this. Tara and sally have both benefited ever since summer left town. I mean, sally, she has her job at jcv, the job that she was after since she arrived in town, and the other one, well, she’s living in your guest room. Those two have benefited ever since my daughter’s been gone. That is not a coincidence. They are in this together.

Ashland: I need to find a way to explain to that sweet boy just how sick his father is, to prepare him for the day that I will no longer be in his life, and I wouldn’t be forced to do this if it weren’t for the news of my illness, my personal, private business being leaked to the media. By you, of that I have no doubt.

Tara: So now you’re gonna resort to wild unfounded accusations?

Ashland: Well, you lied about harrison’s paternity for years. I know what you’re capable of.

Tara: This is exactly what i don’t want you talking to harrison alone, because of the awful things you’re gonna tell him about me.

Ashland: Do you honestly think that I would waste one second I have left on this earth to be vengeful, trying to turn our son against his mother? If I am lucky, I have months with that sweet boy, and you have decades.

Tara: And you resent that, don’t you? You resent me.

Ashland: Oh, this is — you are a master at turning things around and making literally everything about you. No, really, it’s a gift.

Tara: There’s my answer.

Ashland: You’re clearly not thinking what’s best for our son, or else you wouldn’t have filed for sole custody.

Tara: I wasn’t trying to do anything —

Ashland: Don’t do this. Don’t use harrison as a way to gain control of the situation.

Tara: How can you say that with a straight face? You are literally the most controlling man I have ever known. You love to mess with people. You have raised vindictiveness to an art form. Victoria might buy this kinder, gentler version of you, but i have had years of experience with the real thing.

Ashland: You know, this prognosis and the reality I have little time left has definitely changed me, and you know that. But you have not changed a bit. You have traded one comfortable life for another.

Tara: Are you finished?

Ashland: I can only hope that somebody, someone sees all the way through you and exposes you for the fraud that you truly are. And then the whole world will see your true colors.

Billy: Okay, let me just be very clear about something, okay? When I asked nate his opinion about a sick friend, I did not know how close the two of you had gotten. Nate saw right through me and assumed it was for a story — a story that we decided not to publish, by the way.

Victoria: Don’t make any promises that you can’t keep. News is your business, and ashland is news.

Billy: When I told you that i was happy for you, I meant that. Clearly he makes you very happy. And ashland’s not gonna talk to me about how much time he has left. I only put two-and-two together when you let it slip that the kids are only gonna be staying with me for a few months.

Victoria: We have no idea how long ashland has.

Billy: Well, then the most important thing is to follow through with your plan and bring as much joy to each other as you possibly can. Look, vick, I got to be honest. It kind of took my breath away when I realized that you’re not just taking care of a friend or a business partner that got a bad diagnosis. You love him.

Victoria: Don’t sound so surprised.

Billy: You know, after our conversation, I told lily that i think you met the right person at the right time. And how terrible it makes me feel that you’re not gonna have a lot of time together. And I know you’re being brave and you’re trying to put a positive spin on everything, but it’s got to be really devastating for you. And I just hope that you know I’m talking to you as your ex, as the father to your children, as a friend. And you can talk to me about anything, and it’ll stay between us.

Victoria: You’re right. It’s awful. I am in love with him. Ever notice how stiff clothes can feel rough on your skin?

Victoria: You know, ashland, he’s just — he’s such a proud man. And with good reason. He’s — he’s fierce, he’s determined, he’s so intelligent. That’s why it’s really hard watching him struggle with this cancer that he didn’t even know that he had. Makes me wonder if maybe we shouldn’t have merged our companies.

Billy: Well, I don’t know why you would think that. He’s trusting you with his legacy. I mean, he’s got to feel really good knowing that you’re carrying on his vision.

Victoria: It’s just that

[Sighs] So much of who ashland is, is tied up in locke communications group. It’s like he’s handing over this vital part of himself. This is something that gives him purpose.

Billy: Vick, he’s got a lot to live for. And he’s clearly got enough money to get whatever medical help he wants. Is there really nothing his doctors can do?

Victoria: There is treatment for this type of cancer, but the side effects are brutal. It’s not a cure, billy. At best, it will just add some time to his life.

Billy: Are you saying that he’s giving up without a fight?

Victoria: Ash hates the idea of spending his final days being pumped full of drugs that are just gonna leave him feeling weak anyway.

Billy: I find it hard to believe that you’re going along with this.

Victoria: I didn’T. I have been trying to convince him to get the treatments even though he made me promise that i wouldn’T.

Billy: I mean, of course he’s gonna want to spend as much time with you as possible and his kid, of course.

Victoria: Yeah, which makes it even more reprehensible that tara would seek sole custody of harrison. She claims that she’s protecting him. It’s ridiculous. Ashland cut her off financially, and she’s just acting out of spite.

Billy: Does he know how lucky he is that he found you?

Victoria: I hope you know that’s why things are moving along so quickly. I know — I know I’m not acting like my usual cautious self.

Billy: Now that you’ve explained it to me, I can — I understand it.

Victoria: You know, sometimes it’s overwhelming thinking about ashland dying. I just — I can’t let him know how much it hurts.

Billy: That was my concern all along, vick, that you two would get too close and you would fall in too deep.

Victoria: And this is how you support me? By saying “I told you so”?

Phyllis: I understand why you don’t see this.

Kyle: Stop. Enough. You’re totally reaching. Tara and sally barely know each other. They just recently started working together at fenmore’S.

Phyllis: Okay. Kyle, that’s what she wants you to think. Those two are a lot closer than you think.

Kyle: Okay, I get you would’ve preferred tara to pack up and go back to new york.

Phyllis: Yes! Yes, I would have, because that’s where she lives. Why didn’t she?

Kyle: Because I didn’t want to live 1,000 miles away from my son. I intend to be a solid, reliable presence in harrison’s life, and that’s even more important now that ashland is so sick. I get that that’s hard for you to accept. It was apparently a lot harder for summer to accept than she let on. I am asking you to stop taking your emotion out on tara and stop spreading this nonsense that she’s involved in some plot with sally spectra. Tara is going through enough. She doesn’t need people gossiping behind her back or to deal with that.

Phyllis: Alright, I’ll do that on one condition.

Kyle: Here we go.

Phyllis: One condition. Don’t let yourself so blindly be clouded by your love for your son that you can’t see what tara’s doing. Don’t accept what she says so blindly as truth. Okay? Can you do that?

Kyle: Okay, I have things to do. I’m not wasting my time on this anymore. And you know what? You can tell yourself tara orchestrated all this if that makes you feel better, but the bottom line is summer left me. It was her choice.

Summer: Alright. So you think I’m sugarcoating things.

Nikki: I think you don’t want to worry your grandfather and me. But in order for me to feel good about you moving here, I need to really understand what you’re thinking and feeling. Are you truly happy here in milan or simply resigned?

Summer: No, everything that i said before, I meant. You know, I have a great job in an amazing city. And frankly, I don’t think it could’ve come at a better time. There was always a reason why kyle and I would go back and forth, and I just feel like if it was meant to be, it wouldn’t be so hard and there’d be no hesitation on either of our parts, right?

Nikki: I think you’re asking the wrong person.

Summer: Okay, touché.

Nikki: This job with angelina marchetti is very prestigious and it’ll be fun and exciting. I’m sure you’ll gain some fabulous experience.

Summer: But?

Nikki: Even though you knew there was this opening, you didn’t pursue it. This job fell in your lap.

Summer: All I know is, um, now that I’m here, it feels right. And I got to hold on to that ’cause being away from kyle, that — that does not feel right.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Tara: If you’re through with the mud-slinging, can we please get back to the matter at hand?

Ashland: You know, I have neither the desire nor the strength to continue this. We’ll figure out how and when to discuss what’s going on with me to harrison another time.

Tara: Why not now?

Ashland: Because you have made this so adversarial, so what would be the point? As for sitting down and actually discussing this with harrison — who is a smart, sensitive boy — he’s for sure going to pick up on our animosity, and that’s the last thing that I want.

Tara: Right, it’s always me. I’m the problem.

Jack: Everything alright here?

Ashland: Yeah, we were just discussing my illness and how to handle it with harrison. I know you were in the park the other day when I didn’t handle things so well.

Jack: I did not witness the incident at the time.

Ashland: But you have seen the video.

Jack: Not your finest hour.

Ashland: To put it mildly. I sure would like to get my hands on whoever’s responsible for putting it online.

Jack: I can’t blame you there.

Ashland: But right now I need to help harrison figure out what’s going with me in a way that’s not going to frighten or confuse him. And I would really like your help convincing tara that this is a conversation that I need to have with my son alone.

Jack: That can’t have been easy.

Tara: No, it wasn’T. Kyle had a therapist, sharon rosales, come drop by this morning to discuss how best to broach it with harrison.

Jack: I think sharon’s a great resource.

Tara: Yeah, she recommended that we talk to him together, but he has other ideas, as you just heard. And then he went on a personal attack. I just…just want to do what’s best for harrison.

Jack: I think that’s the right priority. And don’t forget — you have support. Our family is here to help you.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Sally: Sally spectra.

Phyllis: Hey, sally, it’s phyllis. Um, ugh, I need to talk to you about something.

Sally: Well, hey, it’s my new best friend, the one who decided to live and let live. You didn’t see me sitting right in front of you?

Phyllis: That’s crazy. I didn’T. Sorry, it’s been a long day.

Sally: Okay. You have my attention.

Phyllis: I’d rather show you.

Victoria: I should have never confided in you. What was I thinking? I don’t know why I never learn.

Billy: Hold on. I think you misunderstood what i was trying to say or I said it wrong. Vick, please.

[ Sighs ] Look, when you are in pain, I am in pain. And I’m watching you open your heart to a guy that is in a really tough place. And you’re gonna have to watch him succumb to this disease. And I didn’t understand why you would want to do that. But I get it. You’re in love with him. This is my longwinded way of saying that I feel terrible that you have to go through that.

Victoria: I know what you’re thinking right now. You’re thinking I… should get out of this while I can.

Billy: No. I’m thinking the opposite of that. Victoria: You sound like you really mean that.

Billy: I think you’re exactly what ashland needs right now. I think you need each other. There are times, I wonder…

Ashland: Well, that’s quite the endorsement, [Sighs] Considering the source.

Billy: I meant every word i said.

Ashland: I believe you did.

Billy: After talking with victoria, it’s very clear that you two are committed to each other. And she’s not gonna listen to me if I try to get her to bail either way.

Ashland: It’s a good point.

Billy: Look, if I haven’t been very clear, I think your situation sucks. And I’m really sorry that you’re going through it.

Ashland: Well, that’s very kind of you. But do you feel bad enough to keep reports of my predicament off your media platform? Uh, not for myself. For harrison’s sake. Even someone that young can get wind of things on the internet.

Billy: [ Inhales deeply ] No salacious stories. No stories of any kind, not from me. You have my word.

Ashland: I appreciate that.

Victoria: We both do. Thank you for being such a good listener.

Billy: Anytime.

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

Victoria: What? Why are you looking at me like that?

Ashland: Uh, what did you need to say to your ex that turned him into such a good listener?

Summer: You know, at least 10 times a day, some awesome, unbelievable thing will happen, and my first thought is, “kyle’s gonna flip. I can’t wait to tell him.” And then I remember…

Nikki: I know the feeling.

Summer: Kyle was my best friend.

[ Sighs ] You know, we even worked in the same building, and… when you’re around someone 24/7…

Nikki: I know. When they’re gone, it leaves a hole in your life.

Summer: We were a team, and it just feels so unnatural to be so disconnected from him.

Nikki: Well, you two shared a long history. Even when your lives took you to different places, you always managed to find a way to get back together. Darling, what you had with kyle is very rare and special. I would be surprised to hear that you didn’t feel the sense of loss that you’re describing.

Summer: [ Sighs ] I just wanted to be with kyle for so long that [Sighs] It really hurts to imagine a future

[Gulps] That doesn’t include him.

[ Sighs ] But I got to let go of that feeling. I mean, I have to. My life is in italy now.

[ Sobs ] So, uh, yeah, you’re right. I’m — I’m not happy yet. But I hope that I’ll get there.

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] We have an employee who’s still learning the system. And, um, they may have erroneously charged your room with something, so I just… if you could do me a favor and just, you know, take a look at this, tell me what’s not yours.

Sally: How many stars does this hotel have? ‘Cause it might be a few too many.

Phyllis: Uh, well, if, uh, one of those charges is not yours, I’ll make it right. That’s the mark of a five-star hotel.

Sally: Okay, well, here is a charge right at the top here — minibar, $36. I don’t even have a minibar in my room. You gave me a fridge instead. Remember?

Phyllis: Oh, my apologies. I’ll make that right. Just mark off whatever isn’t yours, and I’ll take care of it.

Sally: Oh, “expect to get cheated and scammed.” How do you like that for a headline?

Phyllis: For what?

Sally: For the review about this hotel that I’m about to post, once I get through [Sighs] With all these bogus charges.

[ Paper rustling ] Oh, my god. Not touching is still touching protection.

[ Pen scratching paper ]

[ Paper rustling ]

We have a problem.

Phyllis has figured things out.

[ Paper rustling ]

[ Cellphone chimes ]

We have a problem.

Phyllis has figured things out.

Tara: [ Sighs ]

[ Door opens ] Damn it.

[ Sighs ]

Kyle: What’s wrong?

Tara: Oh, um, the usual.

[ Chuckles ]

Kyle: Hmm. Ashland? Take it your talk didn’t go well.

Tara: Oh, I know I shouldn’t take things personally, but he was in rare form today.

Kyle: I’m sorry he upset you. But did the two of you manage to come to an agreement?

Tara: Ashland is insisting that he talks to harrison alone, breaks the news to him without anyone else there.

Kyle: Hmm. So, the exact opposite of what sharon advised.

Tara: I know. I told him that, and he wasn’t interested. The man is so self-centered.

Kyle: Hmm.

Tara: But I [Sighs] — I suppose I would be, too, in his shoes. Guess I should be a little bit more understanding.

Kyle: Hmm. So, where did you and ashland leave things?

Tara: Oh, we’re gonna talk again. Soon, probably.

Kyle: After the two of you have had a chance to cool off a little bit.

Tara: Don’t worry, kyle. Everything is fine. I mean, ashland and I will — will work it out. Somehow. [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I told billy what I’m feeling.

[ Sighs ] I just feel a little overwhelmed from time to time. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. And also I admitted to him that… I’m in love with you. I realize this is going very quickly, but this is not a normal circumstance. We don’t really have any time to waste. I need what you bring to my life. I’ll take what I can get. I love you, ashland. And don’t tell me not to feel that way. Don’t even try.

Ashland: I-I guess I need to find a way to stay alive.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Do you mean that —

Ashland: Yeah, I-I-I-I-I — I’ll start treatment. Then, maybe I’ll get lucky and it’ll actually work. I sure as hell hope so.

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Steffy: Bye, kelly. Have fun at the zoo with amelia. Love you!

Finn: Do you hear that, bud? Your sister gets to go to the zoo, and you get to hang out here with your folks.

Steffy: Are you gonna do one of your world-famous jokes?

Finn: I thought you hated my jokes.

Steffy: Oh, your– your dad jokes.

Finn: Yeah?

Steffy: No, go for it. Go for it.

Finn: Okay, you know what? Just for that, knock-knock.

Steffy: Oh. I forgot. I have to review those pages, the financial reports.

Finn: Oh. No, come back here. Your mom’s a nut, you know that? But she’s also smart, fierce, and drop-dead gorgeous, inside and out. See, hayes, your mom has this great, big heart, and she loves with everything she is. Especially you and your sister. You’re the most important things in her world, just like you are with mine. And you know what? Let’s make a pact. Okay? You and me. See, your mom didn’t go for the impromptu wedding, and I get it. She wants to plan more. But I think if we stick together, we can make it happen real soon.

Paris: This is one of your most inspired designs yet.

Zende: You think so?

Paris: For sure.

Zende: Thank you. It means a lot coming from you.

Paris: Well, I am a zende forrester fan. I have been practically since the first day we met.

Zende: And I’m glad we did, that our paths crossed the way they have.

Paris: Yeah, me too.

Zende: You know, getting to know you, the amazing girl you are, I’m just so grateful that I have you in my life.

Paris: Yeah, I feel the same about you. Especially with all the changes going on around here. Zoe leaving.

Zende: I know that’s hit you hard. Have you heard from her?

Paris: There’s been a few texts. I told her that I’d moved in with steffy and finn, and she was happy for me. But… hey. Did I lose you?

Zende: No. No. It’s just, um… there’s something I wanna say to you. About the two of us.

Paris: I’m not sure what you mean.

Zende: Well, what I said about you being amazing, I totally meant that. Along with everything else I’ve ever said about you.

Paris: All the good stuff you mean.

Zende: Now, how can there be anything but good stuff? When you’re as open as you are. How you’ve embraced people wherever they are, whatever they need. Like you’ve done with me.

Paris: Well, I think it’s a little different between us.

Zende: It is. Because of who we are to each other, how quickly we’ve connected.

Paris: I’m still not sure what you’re getting at, zende. What are you trying to tell me?

Steffy: Oh, no. Donna sent over the wrong files. She sent last year’s first quarter numbers. I need this year’S.

Finn: Can’t you access them on your computer?

Steffy: No. No. The system’s down for maintenance. She messengered these last night, and I don’t know what to do.

Finn: It’s no problem. I was gonna do a diaper run anyway. I’ll just stop by forrester and pick up the right file.

Steffy: You sure you don’t mind?

Finn: Not at all. I took the day off to be with you and my son, and whatever you two need, I’m right here. You be good, little man.

Ridge: Hey. Is this a good time for my daily grandson fix?

Finn: Hayes was just saying he needs his daily grandpa fix. I’m on my way out.

Ridge: Hospital?

Finn: No. Forrester. Steffy will explain. I love you.

Steffy: I love you. Bye.

Finn: Love you too, gramps.

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Ridge: Quite a guy.

Steffy: Yes, he is.

Ridge: Hello, little man. How you doing? Hi. Read any good books lately? Yeah.

Steffy: It’s so crazy. Like, who knew when I opened my eyes at the hospital and I saw this handsome doctor standing over me, that he was gonna be my fiancé, the father of my son. I feel so blessed to have finn in my life.

Ridge: Well, he is too.

Steffy: There’s something you should know.

[ Hayes crying ]

Ridge: Oh.

Steffy: Oh, I’ll get him.

Ridge: You need your mama.

[ Hayes crying ]

Steffy: It’s okay, baby. It’s okay. (Denise) my husband has lung cancer from smoking.

Zende: I’ll talk to hope and back to you.

Paris: Problem?

Zende: Possible fabric shipment mix-up. I won’t bore you with the details.

Paris: Oh, no worries. I enjoy listening to your work.

Zende: Even the mundane stuff like missing fabric?

Paris: Yeah. I mean, you listen to me talk about budgets and fundraising. That can get pretty mundane too.

Zende: Yeah, but your work isn’T.

Paris: Neither is yours. Hope for the future is having a big impact. Diversity. Sustainability. Women empowerment. That message is powerful. And your designs are a big part of that message.

Zende: You see? This is why I like you. You’re always so positive.

Paris: But?

Zende: No. No “buts.” You know how I feel about you, paris.

Paris: Yeah, I thought I did, but maybe you should tell me.

Zende: Look, we’ve been dating, and… clearly there’s an attraction here. It’s just… I mean, we’re coworkers. We’ve been doing really well for ourselves, and I would just hate to mess that up for either of us.

Paris: So, what are you saying?

Zende: We should just be a little careful. Am I making sense?

Paris: Yeah. Actually, I’ve been thinking the same thing.

Zende: Really?

Paris: Yeah. I mean, we’ve built something really special, and I wouldn’t wanna mess that up, especially now that I don’t have any more family in L.A. I don’t wanna lose you too.

Zende: So then we’re…cool just taking things a bit slower?

Paris: Mm-hmm. In fact, I think it might make us tighter in some ways.

Zende: I agree. Okay, then. We’ll take this one day at a time.

Steffy: He is back to dreamland.

Ridge: That’s a mother’s touch right there.

Steffy: Well, this isn’t my first rodeo.

Ridge: But it’s his first rodeo. And how’s your, uh– how’s little finn boy doing?

Steffy: Good. He’s really bonding with hayes.

Ridge: I can see that. He’s a good guy.

Steffy: He likes you, too.

Ridge: Well, come on, what’s not to like? I’m attractive. I’m rich. He wants to be on my good side.

Steffy: Oh, my gosh.

Ridge: It’s nice to see you like that. You’re happy. You are happy, right?

Steffy: Yeah, I am.

Ridge: Good. You deserve that after the year you had with… liam and hope and up and down and up and down. You deserve this “happily ever after” with finn, which I don’t know anything about this guy.

Steffy: That’s actually what I wanted to talk to you about. That’s so crazy you said that. Um… yeah, it just feels like it’s all, like– it’s happening fast. I mean, made our proposal. We have hayes. He wanted to marry me here the other day.

Ridge: Wait. What?

Steffy: Yeah. It was actually really cute. He wanted hayes to be the witness. It was adorable.

Ridge: Wait, wait. You didn’t do this, did you?

Steffy: No. I wouldn’t break your heart like that.

Ridge: Okay, good. That is good, right?

Steffy: Yeah. It’s– it’s good. I just, you know… we have hayes, and we’re a family. And… it’s just, like, a lot right now.

Ridge: So you don’t– you don’t want that?

Steffy: No, I do. I don’t know what I’m saying. I’m tired, dad. Just–okay. I want–I can’t imagine my life without finn. You know, he’s absolutely amazing. He’s an incredible partner, incredible fiancé, a spectacular father already. And I don’t have to share his heart with anybody else. It’s so nice.

Ridge: Makes sense.

Steffy: Things are really good right now, you know? And I really don’t wanna mess it up. And no offense or anything, but, you know, everything that happened with, um… with you and brooke and mom.

Ridge: Oh, yeah. No, no, no.

Steffy: That environment.

Ridge: I understand. No offense taken.

Steffy: Okay. I just wanna…

Ridge: I’m sure finn understands that too.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, he gets it. He just, uh… he did ask me if I still had feelings for liam.

Ridge: Do you still have feelings for liam?

Steffy: We’re always gonna be connected. He’s kelly’s father.

Ridge: But you don’t love him.

Steffy: No. No. He’s happy with hope, and I’m really happy with finn. It’s nice to get off the roller coaster. It feels great.

Ridge: Yeah. So everything’s gonna be fine as long as you don’t get married here with an infant as your witness.

Steffy: It’s a beautiful testament to his love for me. But… we are just so crazy right now. We have so much going on. I mean, dad… I gotta quiet my voice because we have a newborn, and we just, like, don’t even have a routine right now. Honestly, like, I–I don’t know why we need a piece of paper to validate us being husband and wife. Things are–are great. We should keep it that way. We’re a couple, and we’re parents, and…

Ridge: Yeah.

Steffy: Like, it’s good right now.

Ridge: Good. Everything’s great.

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: That’s it. I’m not missing anything here, am I?

Steffy: [ Sighs ] Breyers is always so delicious…

Zende: So we’re good with this?

Paris: Taking things one day at a time?

Zende: I hope that you don’t feel I’ve led you on or anything like that.

Paris: No, no. You could never do that. It’s not who you are.

Zende: Well, who you are is gorgeous, smart, caring, creative.

Finn: Oh. I’m sorry. Uh, I feel like I’m interrupting something.

Zende: Yeah, you are, but, uh, it’s okay. Hey. We’re cool, right?

Paris: Absolutely.

Zende: Okay.

Finn: Uh, so I just came to pick up this year’s first quarter numbers for steffy. Donna messengered the wrong ones. She’s not at her desk. You don’t know where this file is, do you?

Zende: Uh, yeah, I actually do. I’ll get ’em for you.

Finn: Okay. Thanks, zende.

Zende: And by the way, I don’t know how you managed it, but well done.

Finn: What do you mean?

Zende: You and steffy getting paris to live with you. Now you got a built-in babysitter. Smart move.

Paris: Ha ha ha. I know he was just kidding.

Finn: Yeah, good. Like you would have the time. We’re just glad you’re hanging out with us at our lovable but noisy brood.

Paris: I’m glad to, as long as I’m not in the way.

Finn: Of course not. You can stay as long as you need.

Paris: Thanks. You know, you and steffy are such special people. It’s easy to see why the two of you work so well. You guys are so attentive to each other.

Finn: Well, steffy’s my wife. Uh, steffy’s the mother of my child. I’ll always be there for her.

Steffy: You’re not missing anything.

Ridge: Okay, good. Because I’m with finn on this one. He found the perfect person. He’s found you. You’re amazing. You’re perfect. You’re one of a kind. And he just wants to find a way to lock it down as soon as possible.

Steffy: Dad.

Ridge: Here’s what I don’t get. We’re forresters. We do weddings. That’s what we do. We’re good at it. And it seems to me that he’s trying to dodge a forrester wedding. I don’t like it.

Steffy: No, it’s not like that at all. But thank you for looking out for me.

Ridge: I’m always looking out for you. I’m your dad. And I don’t want you marrying someone if I don’t know who his parents are. You’re always gonna be my little girl. I’m not just gonna let you leave like that. And I know what you’re gonna say. We’ve talked about this. You’re not a little girl anymore. I know that. But you are to me. It doesn’t matter how many people you marry, how many kids you have. You’re always gonna be my little girl. And I’m sorry. I wasn’t a good role model for you.

Steffy: I shouldn’t have said that. I didn’t mean it.

Ridge: It’s okay. I should’ve shown you what a marriage should be like, and I didn’t, ’cause I was torn between two women. And it was hard for you, thomas, phoebe, all you guys. But, you know, you gotta remember, you’re not me. You’re you, and you’re not torn between liam and finn. You’re not torn between finn and anybody. He’s your guy. He’s the guy you’ve been waiting for. It’s the way he looks at you. He gets you. And he’s great with the kids, and…[ Sighs ] That’s it. That’s who you wanna be with. It’s not a question of if you wanna marry him, but when. Right?

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah. Exactly.

Ridge: He’s okay with you turning him down with this impromptu wedding you had here. He’s not upset, is he?

Steffy: Ah. I– I didn’t mean to hurt him. I really didn’T. But I feel the exact same way you do. Like, I want to know his parents. I wanna know where he came from. And I really wanna enjoy this moment, but if he does feel rejected, like, I would hate that. I know I’m so crazy right now, dad, but, like, the more I’m speaking about this and really thinking about it, I’m realizing, like, I don’t wanna wait. I-I’m sorry. I don’T. I thought we were rushing into things, but– what am I doing? Like, I really wanna marry him, and I… like, right now. I should. Finn is my person. Why wait? I wanna marry him. I wanna be with him forever. Always. There are times, I wonder…

Paris: I don’t mean to pry, so if I’m sticking my nose somewhere it doesn’t belong, just tell me.

Finn: Hey, we’re living together now. It’s gonna be next to impossible to keep any secrets. Not that I have any. Whatever you need to know, you can just ask.

Paris: Well, this is more of an observation really. I’ve been watching you and steffy– the way you relate. It’s clear how much you love each other. And it’s clear how committed you are to her and hayes.

Finn: Absolutely. They’re the center of my world now. Everything else takes a back seat. Well, not everything. I mean, being a doctor is still pretty damn important to me.

Paris: Well, that’s just because you’re really good at taking care of people.

Finn: You know what I’m also really good at? Changing hayes’ diaper. I mean, those are some serious skills.

Paris: Yeah, I’ve seen you in action, and very impressive. I think steffy might even be a little envious of how good you are.

Finn: I know, right? And she was already a pro after kelly.

Paris: Regardless if it’s changing a diaper or all the other ways you guys support each other, it’s–it’s lucky that you guys have found one another.

Ridge: So, what are you saying? I should put champagne on ice and call this planner?

Steffy: Okay, okay. Let me call my fiancé first. But maybe you should let mom know.

Ridge: I’ll let her know. You know what? I’m gonna call his parents too, because I don’t know them, and you need to know someone’s family. It tells you a lot about who they are.

Steffy: Yeah, I’m sure finn agrees after meeting you.

Ridge: All right. Take it easy.

Steffy: I’m kidding. He’ll be lucky to be marrying into this family. Just like I’ll be lucky to be marrying into his.

Ridge: Yeah. Come here.

Steffy: Oh, dad.

Ridge: I like the kid. I really do. Especially now that he’s given me another grandson.

Steffy: Yeah.

Ridge: What? If you’ve got some doubts, some reservations, then…

Steffy: No. None at all.

Ridge: ‘Cause I’m not saying you need to get married tomorrow. I mean, look, it would make finn happy. It would make me happy.

Steffy: [ Laughs ]

Ridge: It’s not really about us being happy as much as it is about you being happy. So, when are you getting married?

Young & The Restless Update

Y&R logo

Recap written by Christine

At the Grand Phoenix, Phyllis demanded to know what Kyle was accusing her of. Kyle wanted Phyllis to stop playing mind games with Tara – pretending to be her friend when she wasn’t. He understood that she was upset Summer left, but it wasn’t fair to scapegoat Tara. He said Phyllis already laid blame on him, and the child he refused to walk away from. He noted that Phyllis even hinted that she might be interested in starting things up with Tara again, which wasn’t remotely true. “So stop taking your anger out on Tara because you don’t trust me,” he snapped. “No, it’s Tara I don’t trust,” Phyllis replied. She said that Tara was looking for another powerful and wealthy family to latch onto for her and her kid. He pointed out that he was that child’s father, and Tara had been invited to stay. Phyllis argued that Tara engineered the invitation, and she was taking advantage of Kyle’s generosity and his love for his son. She believed Tara pushed Summer out of town.

Kyle challenged Phyllis to explain how Tara ran Summer out of town. He wasn’t surprised when Phyllis admitted she didn’t have proof. She vowed to find proof and show it to him. She didn’t intend to have this conversation with him now, but he’d forced her hand, and she was okay with that, because now this information was on his radar. He asked if Summer said that Tara forced her to leave or if this was just another story Phyllis concocted. “How dare you!,” Phyllis yelled, before bursting into tears. She said she knew her daughter better than anyone, and Summer wouldn’t have done this. She said Summer didn’t even want her to uncover the truth, but she was going to do it regardless. Kyle didn’t believe Tara manipulated Summer into leaving. He asked why Summer would says she didn’t love him instead of fighting for what they had. Phyllis told Kyle to look back on all the conversations he had with Summer, when he was moving Tara and Harrison into the house, and think about what she’d said that he didn’t hear at the time. “No. No. No. I am not letting you do this,” he bellowed. He’d spent weeks going over every moment he shared with Summer trying to find a clue of something that happened or something he may have done wrong, and he’d even blamed Sally for it. Phyllis told Kyle he was right about Sally. She pointed out that Sally and Tara benefited from Summer’s exit – Sally got Summer’s job, which she’d been after since she got to town, and Tara was living in the Abbott guest room. She said Sally and Tara were in it together.

Kyle said that was enough. Tara and Sally barely knew each other. Phyllis contended that Tara and Sally were closer than Kyle thought. He knew she wished Tara had gone back to NY. Phyllis did wish that, and she asked why Tara didn’t leave. He said he didn’t want to live a thousand miles away from his son. He intended to be a solid reliable presence in Harrison’s life, especially now that Ashland was sick. He understood that was hard for Phyllis and Summer to accept. He asked her to stop taking her emotions out on Tara and spreading nonsense about her being involved with Sally. Phyllis told Kyle not to let his emotions for his son cloud his judgment to the point that he couldn’t see what Tara was doing. He refused to waste more time on this. He said the bottom line was Summer chose to leave him. He walked out.

Summer visited her grandparents at their hotel suite in Italy. They’d toured the offices at Marchetti earlier. Summer said it was first rate, from top to bottom. Leslie Brooks even popped in last week, and she was going to be wearing a Marchetti gown at the concert. Summer was sorry they didn’t get a chance to meet Angela Marchetti, but she was traveling. She sounded upbeat about her job. Victor thought this sounded wonderful, but he recalled that she had a hard time when she was offered this job, and he asked if she had second thoughts about moving away. Summer stated that she missed her family and hometown, and she missed Kyle too, but she still thought she made the right choice. She wasn’t ready to be a stepmom or deal with Kyle’s ex being a constant presence. She said she was at peace with everything. Victor bought it, and he was glad to hear that. He stepped out to take a call.

Nikki asked Summer to be completely honest – was this really the life she wanted? Summer meant everything she said – she had a great job in an amazing city, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. She and Kyle kept going back and forth, and it if was meant to be, it wouldn’t be so hard, and there would be no hesitation from either of them. Summer asked if Nikki agreed that it wouldn’t be hard if it were meant to be. Nikki tactfully said Summer was asking the wrong person. Nikki noted that Summer didn’t pursue the job – it fell into her lap. Summer said that now that she was here, the job felt right, and she had to hold onto that because being away from Kyle didn’t feel right. Summer admitted that at least ten times a day, something unbelievable happened, and her first thought was to tell Kyle, then she remembered. Nikki knew the feeling. Summer said Kyle was her best friend, they even worked in the same building. They were a team, and it felt unnatural to be so disconnected from him. Nikki said Summer and Kyle had a long history, and what they had was rare and special. She thought it was normal that Summer felt this sense of loss. Summer said she wanted to be with Kyle so long that it hurt to imagine a future without him, but she had to let go of that. She confided that she wasn’t happy yet, but she hoped she’d get there.

Sally ran into Jack at Society, and he invited her to sit. They both had a great time at dinner the other night. She said Kyle made it clear that he wasn’t happy Jack and Sally were spending time together. Jack said Kyle was protective of him, which was understandable given certain aspects of Sally’s history. He said Kyle wanted him to be happy. Sally also wanted Jack to be happy. She couldn’t help wondering where she and Jack went from here. He thought it was obvious that he definitely felt a connection with her. There was an ease when he was with her, she was easy on the eyes, intelligent, witty and a fighter, which he admired even when it was sometimes to her detriment. He was willing to give it another shot. She knew some people wouldn’t be pleased, but he said he made his own decisions. He thought she could go anywhere she wanted in life. Sally said that hadn’t always been her experience, but hearing him say it made her believe it. It was exhausting to feel like you had to fight to hold onto what you had, and she didn’t want to do that anymore. Her goal was to win his trust. He was happy to hear that, but he didn’t want her to feel like she was on trial. She suggested another date, and he said he’d make the arrangements.

At the Abbott house, Tara swore she’d never try and keep Ashland and Harrison from seeing each other, because that wouldn’t be fair to Harrison. Ashland asked if it was fair for Tara to have full custody. She didn’t want to discuss that. She wanted to come up with a plan to tell Harrison about Ashland’s illness. She wanted to relay what Sharon, the therapist had said. He was sure Tara was going to filter the information. Tara said that Sharon advised being forthright with Harrison and keep reminding him that he was loved and supported. Ashland thought all that made sense, and he said they’d talk with Harrison together after he’d talked to Harrison alone. Ashland knew the news would be devastating enough without confusing Harrison and making him think Tara and Ashland were back together. Tara didn’t think Harrison would even be thinking about that. They debated about it, and Ashland raised his voice. Tara said the therapist thought they should tell Harrison together. He argued that this was their decision and his illness. He didn’t know why she was fighting him on this. She raised her voice as well and said she was just trying to do what was best for Harrison. He thought she was only trying to do what was best for herself.

Ashland said he had to find a way to prepare that sweet boy for the day he’d no longer be in his life. He wouldn’t have to do it if Tara didn’t leak his illness to the media. He was sure it was her. She told him he was making wild accusations, and he replied that she’d hidden Harrison’s paternity for years. She said that was why she didn’t want him talking to Harrison alone – because of the awful things he’d say to Harrison about her. He asked if she really thought he’d waste the time he had left on this earth being vengeful and trying to turn Harrison against his mother. He said that, if he was lucky, he had months with that sweet boy, and she had decades. She thought he resented her for that. He called her a master at making literally everything about herself. He thought it was clear that she wasn’t thinking about what was best for Harrison, or she wouldn’t have filed for full custody. He told her not to try and use Harrison to get control of the situation. She asked how he could say that with a straight face, given that he was literally the most controlling man she’d ever known. She said Victoria might buy the kinder gentler version of him, but Tara had years of experience with the real thing. He said his illness had changed him, but she hadn’t changed a bit. He hoped that someday someone exposed her for the fraud she was.

Tara asked if he was through mudslinging so they could get back to the matter at hand. He said he had neither the desire nor the strength to continue this conversation, so they could discuss it another time. She asked why not now. He said she’d made it so adversarial. Harrison was a smart sensitive boy, and if they talked to him now, Ashland was sure he’d pick up on their animosity. Jack walked in, as Tara was complaining that Ashland was making it like she was the problem. Jack asked if things were okay. Ashland brought him up to speed. Ashland knew Jack was in the park when he didn’t handle things so well. Jack said he didn’t witness the incident, but he confirmed that he saw the video. He said it wasn’t Ashland’s finest hour. Ashland wished he could get his hands on the person who filmed the video. He said he had to explain things to Harrison in a way that wouldn’t frighten or confuse him. He wanted Jack’s help convincing Tara that he needed to have this conversation with his son alone. Ashland left.

Tara told Jack how Kyle had Sharon visit to give them advice on Harrison. Jack thought Sharon was a great resource. Tara said Ashland didn’t want to follow Sharon’s advice that they talk to Harrison together. She said Ashland went on a personal attack. She just wanted to do what was best for Harrison. Jack assured Tara that the Abbotts were there to help.

Phyllis saw Sally walk into the hotel and sit in the lounge. She proceeded to call Sally. Sally answered and pointed out that she was right across from Phyllis. Phyllis put her plan into motion. She approached Sally with an invoice and said a new employee accidentally charged some things to Sally’s room. She asked Sally to look over the charges and tell her which ones were incorrect. Sally studied the bill while griping about the bogus charges and vowing to leave a scathing review of The Grand Phoenix. While Sally was occupied, Phyllis picked up a stack of folders that were on the table between them, and she slipped Sally’s phone into the pile.

Phyllis went back to the bar. She discreetly used Sally’s phone to text Tara. “We have a problem. Phyllis has figured things out.”

Damn it,” Tara said as she received the text, and at that moment, Kyle came home and asked what was wrong. She let him think it was Ashland who had her upset. She vented about Ashland and called him self-centered. She supposed she’d be the same way in Ashland’s shoes, though. She assured him she and Ashland would work this out somehow.

Billy dropped by Victoria’s to talk with her about how the kids were handling things. She asked if something was wrong – was Johnny feeling sick again? He said Johnny was better, and he was back at day camp. She thanked him for letting the kids spend the majority of their time with him and Lily at least for now. He said he saw her and Nate talking, and he assumed it was about Ashland. She revealed that she knew he’d also gone to Nate about Ashland. He pretended not to know what she was talking about. She said he quizzed Nate about an anonymous friend with the exact same symptoms of Ashland. She wondered if he was planning another tasteless invasion of Ashland’s privacy or if he was truly that concerned about Ashland’s condition. He said he was concerned about her.

Billy said that when he asked Nate’s opinion about a sick friend, he didn’t know how close Victoria and Ashland had gotten. He said Nate saw through him and assumed it was for a story, a story ChancComm decided not to publish. He said he was genuinely happy for her. He only figured out the truth about Ashland’s prognosis when she let it slip that the kids would only be staying at Billy and Lily’s for a few months. Victoria said they didn’t know how long Ashland had. He thought it was important that she and Ashland follow through with the plan to give each other as much joy as they could. He said it kind of took his breath away when he realized she loved Ashland. She told him not to sound so surprised. He’d told Lily that he thought Victoria met the right person at the right time. He knew Victoria was being brave, but it had to be devastating for her not to have much time. He said he was talking as her ex, as the father of her children and as a friend. He promised she could tell him anything, and he wouldn’t ever share it. Her eyes filled with tears. She said he was right, it was awful, and she did love Ashland.

Victoria said Ashland was a proud man, and with good reason. He was fierce, determined and intelligent. It was hard watching him struggle with this cancer he didn’t know he had. She wondered if the merger was a mistake. So much of who Ashland was was tied up in this company, and it was like he was handing over a vital part of himself. Billy said Ashland had a lot to live for, and he could afford treatment. Victoria said there was no cure, and the side effects were brutal. He found it hard to believe she was going along with this. She said she was trying to convince Ashland to get the treatment. He was sure Ashland would want to spend as much time with Harrison and Victoria as possible. Victoria thought it was even more reprehensible that Tara was seeking full custody. She thought Tara was acting out of spite because Ashland cut her off. He asked if Ashland knew how lucky he was that he found Victoria. She hoped Billy knew that was why things were moving so quickly and why she wasn’t acting like her usual cautious self. He understood now. Sometimes it was overwhelming for her to think about Ashland dying, but she couldn’t let him know how much it hurt. Billy said that was what he’d been concerned about all along – that Victoria would get hurt. She was appalled because she thought he was saying “I told you so.”

Victoria regretted confiding in Billy. He said he must’ve misspoke, or she misunderstood. “When you are in pain, I am in pain,” he said. He was watching her open her heart to a guy in a tough place, and she’d have to watch him succumb to the disease. At first he didn’t understand why she wanted to do that, but now he understood. Victoria assumed Billy thought she should get out of this while she could. Ashland entered and went into the kitchen. He overheard Billy say “I think you’re exactly what Ashland needs right now. I think you need each other.”

Ashland walked into the living room and said that was quite the endorsement, considering the source. Billy meant every word. Ashland believed that. Billy thought it was clear Victoria and Ashland were committed to each other, and he knew that she wouldn’t listen if he tried to get her to bail either way. He thought Ashland’s condition sucked and he was sympathetic. Ashland asked if Billy would keep reports of his predicament off his media platform. He didn’t want Harrison to hear about it, and even someone that young could pick up information from the internet. Billy promised not to do any stories of any kind about this. Victoria and Ashland appreciated that. Victoria thanked Billy for being such a good listener, and he said anytime. He left.

Ashland asked what Victoria said to her ex that turned him into such a good listener. She said she told Billy that she felt a little overwhelmed from time to time, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. She said she also admitted to Billy that she was in love with Ashland. Ashland’s mouth fell open. Victoria understood it was going quickly, but this wasn’t a normal situation, and she didn’t have time to waste. She needed what he brought to her life. “I love you, Ashland. And don’t tell me not to feel that way. Don’t even try,” she firmly said. “I – I guess I need to find a way to stay alive,” he said. He promised to start treatment, and he hoped he got lucky and it worked.

General Hospital Transcript

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Sonny: How long are you staying?

Nina: Well, as long as I’m needed.

Sonny: Mm. That could be a long time.

Nina: Could be. I wouldn’t want to cramp your style or anything, because I can just go if —

Sonny: You take another step towards the door, I might have to do something drastic.

Nina: Well, I wouldn’t want that.

Sonny: Uh-huh.

Nina: Hey, why don’t you bring us some more beer? We got a lot of catching up to do.

Sam: Hey, I hope you don’t mind a splash of rum with your pineapple.

Shawn: [ Chuckles ] Shades of Negril. Have you been?

Sam: Um, yes, actually — a long time ago.

Shawn: I hear you. Well, cheers to your new office.

Sam: And a broad-minded parole officer. [ Laughs ]

Shawn: Cheers.

Sam: Cheers.

Shawn: Mmm-mmm-mmm.

Sam: That sure is good. You know I do my best thinking on a lounge.

Shawn: Oh, no justification needed.

Sam: Ah.

Shawn: We’re not slacking on the job. We’re working.

Sam: Yeah, that’s right.

Shawn: In fact…there’s our target now.

Alexis: Oh, my god. Ryan? Fancy meeting you here.

Monica: We have narrowed the candidates down to the two of you. It is imperative that we turn the page on Cyrus Renault. He nearly ran this hospital right into the ground.

Britt: Agreed. [ Chuckles ] And who better to do that than the woman who led the covert effort against him?

Terry: The woman whom he didn’t handpick in the first place?

Jason: Just tell me what happened to Peter.

Elizabeth: [ Sighs ] Jason, I’ve got a lot going on. I’m trying to get my family back to some semblance of normalcy. Cameron is starting PCU, Jake is taking a summer animation class, and Aiden signed up for a baking competition.

Jason: Okay, look, I don’t want to push you.

Elizabeth: Then don’t.

Jason: But I can’t ignore what I just overheard. And it wasn’t just the words. It was the tone of your voice. I’m pretty sure you’re in trouble. Let me help you.

Finn: You say you might have a lead on Peter?

Anna: It was more of a theory, really. You know, evidence is inconclusive, but it’s the best line we’ve got right now.

Finn: Everything starts with a hypothesis. You think it might bring you any closer to Peter?

Anna: It’s difficult to say. I hope not.

Sam: Hey. How’s it going?

Jax: Hey, Sam.

Sam: It’s been a while.

Jax: You know, I’ve been better. But I just heard that you and I are part of the, uh — the same exclusive club.  Your ex and my ex?

Sam: Oh.

Jax: Together at last.

Sam: Yeah. Well, I am definitely not looking forward to that bridal shower.

Jax: [ Laughs ]

Sam: I was thinking of making plans that coincide visiting day at Spring Ridge with my mother whether she is or isn’t available.

Jax: Yeah, how is Alexis? I h-heard that she earned a reprieve by exposing a biased judge.

Sam: I wouldn’t exactly call it a reprieve. I mean, just because she’s not in a maximum security prison, it’s still prison. She’s just with less dangerous convicts.

Alexis: How the hell did you get assigned to this facility? Are you even in there? There you are. I see you. I just really wasn’t expecting that this place would have such a variety of inmates, you know? I know it’s a minimal security prison, but I was kind of expecting white-collar criminals and some maybe drunken ragers. But — but not a locked-in you. Didn’t see that coming. Just how recovered are you? [ Gasps ] Oh!

Britt: I had nothing to do with Cyrus bringing me in as chief. But when I discovered what he was up to, I risked my life to stop his corruption — not only for this hospital, but for Port Charles. When I saw what his drugs were doing to this town, I wanted to take him down. And what I was doing was a hell of a lot more significant than gossiping at the desk with Nurse Baldwin.

Terry: I-I don’t dispute your dedication, Doctor. We were all very worried when you went into hiding.  Thank goodness you had Jason Morgan to satisfy your needs — for safety. This hospital is trying to salvage its reputation. Cyrus Renault was running drugs out of G.H. under your watch, and one has to wonder whether you looked the other way. The board could hardly be faulted for addressing this perception with a clean break.

Monica: Uh, excuse me, Doctors. The lobbying is all done. We have made our decision. So, do you want to hear what it is?

Britt:  All ears.

Terry: I’m sorry, Dr. Quartermaine.

Monica: While both of you are eminently qualified doctors, any hospital would be privileged to have you as chief of staff.

Britt:  And what about this one?

Monica: Especially this one. So, congratulations, Dr. Westbourne. And congratulations, Dr. Randolph. You are both chief of staff.

Nina: What’s that smile all about?

Sonny: What? I can’t smile?

Nina: No, I love it when you smile. Smile all the time and preferably in my direction. But what is prompting that smile?

Sonny: I’m just happy to — happy to see you.

Nina: I am really happy to see you, too. Hey, stubble never looked so good.

Sonny: I was actually gonna shave.

Nina: No, because, you know, this rugged look, it really suits you.

Sonny: Yeah?

Nina: Yeah.

Sonny: Maybe in Nixon Falls , but, you know, a little rough around the edges is not gonna go well in a big city like Port Charles.

Nina: Oh?

Sonny: Yeah. You don’t know how close I came, I got to tell you, driving all the way out there… and bringing you back to me.

[ Door closes ]

Anna: I’m confused. You — you went to New York to find Peter. You were hell-bent on finding Peter, and — and now you’re dragging your feet. What happened? Did Valentin get in your head?

Anna: No, he’s not in my head.

Finn: Okay. Well, he’s not without guilt, right? I mean, he more than anyone shaped Peter into the man he became.

Anna: A-and he does regret his actions when Peter was a baby. He’s as motivated as I am to make amends, protect the people we love.

Finn: So if he’s all in, what has you dragging your feet? You said you would do whatever it took to bring him to justice.

Anna: Well, I meant that. But when I said those things, I-I couldn’t know where the hunt would lead me or what it might — might cost when I got there.

Elizabeth: Jason, please, I-I can’t talk about this with you.

Jason: If you can’t talk to me, how soon before you think you’re gonna be talking to the cops? I’m thinking of the boys. Jake, Aiden, Cam — Elizabeth, they need you, so whatever you’re mixed up in, I can help if you just tell me what’s going on.

Elizabeth: If I tell you, I’ll make you responsible, too.

Jason: Okay, I’m the one pursuing this. I accept the risk.

Elizabeth: Okay, the truth is, I’ve been wanting to tell you pretty much since the beginning because I trust you and I know you would understand. Peter August is dead.

Nina: You were on your way to Port Charles?

Sonny: Yeah, I, uh — well, I got very close, and then I restrained myself ’cause I-I thought that you — you know, I don’t want to interrupt you and your grandson. I mean, I know how important that is to you. Did you guys have a good time? You had fun?

Nina: Yeah, it was a really great time. You know, he’s doubled in size and he’s tripled his vocabulary. I was — I was teaching him how to swim, and get this. He loves the pool, hates the ocean, and he — he prefers jam over jelly on his toast.

Sonny: Right.

Nina: And, oh, and the world stops if we see a dump truck or a dog or — or… or anything under construc– am I going on a little bit too much about this?

Sonny: No. What are you talking about? I like seeing you happy like this. So it was a success with Wiley. What about the family? They get in the way again?

Nina: Wiley’s father is being very accommodating.

Sonny: What about the other grandmother? She — she’s… she get in the way, too, or not?

Nina: You know, I was expecting a little pushback, to be honest with you, but she has — um, she has found some compassion for the situation.

Sonny: That’s a switch.

Nina: Yeah. I mean, we’re — we’re doing it. We’re getting along. You know, I’ll give her credit where credit is due.

Sonny: Does that extend to your ex? ‘Cause he paved the way, right?

Nina: Yeah, he did.

Sonny: So he’s in your good graces now? I mean, you guys — you guys working it out?

Jax: You know, I would actually love to see Alexis. You think she’s up for a visit?

Sam: Yeah, sure. Go and try. I’m sure you’re welcome.

Jax: ‘Cause I tried to visit her early on in Pentonville, but I was turned away.

Sam: Oh, do not take that personal because when she was at Pentonville…

Jax: Okay.

Sam: …She kept us all at bay. She didn’t want to see me, Kristina, or molly.

Jax: Really?

Sam: Yeah, but thankfully, she’s found some sort of a purpose. She’s helping other inmates out with their parole and appeals.

Jax: Although some of her prison clients leave a lot to be desired for.

Shawn: … I’m sure glad I made the cut… or I’d still be behind bars. But maybe that’s where you think I should be.

Jax: Abuse of power by a bigot judge is wrong, but I also believe the person who shot Hayden Barnes deserves the appropriate punishment.

Shawn: Then we’re in complete agreement.

Sam: What if I told you that Shawn was not that person?

Alexis: Nikolas! Oh, god, I’m glad to see you. And don’t ever sneak up on me like that again. This place is not conducive to surprises, and I just got a big one.

Britt:  We can’t both be chief of staff. How would that work? She’s chief of staff Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays, and I have the rest of the week?

Terry: Oh, so four days to my three.

Britt:  [ Sighs ]

Monica: No, I’m offering you a position of co-chief of staff. We need someone with institutional, organizational, and leadership skills. We also need someone with a fresh perspective, someone who can rally an already demoralized staff.

Terry: It’s an unconventional leadership framework. Well, I’m sure the two of you will make a very good team. I can’t imagine a better duo.

Monica: Maybe I spoke too soon.

Elizabeth: Finn caught Peter on the roof. There was a helicopter circling above. Peter had a vial of the antidote that was keeping Chase alive. He wouldn’t give it to Finn. Instead, he threw it off the roof and turned around to go back downstairs, and Finn just lost it. He pushed Peter down the stairs. And when I got to the stairwell, Peter was lying on the ground bleeding. No pulse. Finn wanted to confess, but Chase would have died if Finn hadn’t been around to save him. So…we did the only thing we could.

Jason: You got rid of the body.

Elizabeth: We thought about telling a million times. Not because we feel guilty. Peter August was a monster, and God forgive me, I feel no remorse for what happened to him. But Maxie — Maxie — I feel terrible that she’s terrified that Peter’s out there and might come back. But if we go to the police and we confess, a-at the very least, there’s gonna be an investigation.

Jason: Yeah, I mean, the fact that you guys initially covered up what happened, that might work against you.

Elizabeth: And Finn has Violet to think of, and I have my boys. And we still don’t know what happened to Maxie’s baby. I mean, obviously, she’s not with Peter, but she’s out there somewhere.

Jason: Where’s Peter’s body?

Elizabeth: Helena’s lab. In the subbasement, there’s a freezer. Peter’s inside.

Anna: We located Peter’s helicopter pilot in New York. We hoped that they would lead us to Peter or the baby or both, you know?

Finn: And? I mean, any news on the baby, at least?

Anna: Not Peter?

Finn: Well, I figured you didn’t have any news on Peter ’cause you said you didn’t want to find him.

Anna: Right. Um… as regards to the baby, t-the pilot had very little to offer before we arrested him, other than the fact that the original plan was to pick up Maxie, the baby, and the kidnapper, but that plan fell through.

Finn: Mm-hmm. I was told the police have cellphone records suggesting that the fake nurse met with somebody in the woods. Was it the pilot? Did she give the baby to him?

Anna: No.

Finn: Hmm.

Anna: No, if — if he knew where she was, he would have given her up in a heartbeat to mitigate the trouble he’s in. The irony is that if he had picked Peter up, he would be dead by now because we both know Peter doesn’t like loose ends. Not landing was the best thing that ever happened to that pilot.

Finn: I suppose.

Anna: So he was denied clearance to land, and he was circling. And he saw Peter on the roof. But Peter wasn’t alone up there.

Jason: Okay, uh, back to work. And if anybody… saw us together and questions you, all you got to do is say we were talking about the animation class that Jake is gonna take this summer.

Elizabeth: Okay. Jason, what are you gonna do?

Jason: I’m gonna make this go away.

Terry:  Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity, but I have to ask, since Dr. Westbourne didn’t take the deal, does that mean it’s off the table for me, as well?

Monica: Well, she didn’t turn it down. She just hasn’t accepted it yet.

Terry:  Do you think she will?

Monica: Since she is the daughter of Liesl Obrecht and Obrecht is nothing else if not pragmatic, I think she’ll see the wisdom of the choice.

Terry:  And if she doesn’t?

Monica: It really is in her best interest to. Look, Terry, cards on the table, um, I presented this as a package deal. Either you both accept it or neither one of you gets it and I go looking for another candidate.

Terry: You won’t have to do that. I will put my superpower people skills to work.

Monica: [Chuckles] Think of this as your first test in your diplomatic ability as co-chief. And if diplomacy doesn’t work, you can always go for flattery. It ain’t pretty, but it gets the job done.

Terry: [Sighs]

Nina: [ Sighs ] Jax went all-out for me, and I am greatly appreciative.

Sonny: Why wouldn’t you be?

Nina: He made me remember why I fell in love with him, but that was then. And I’m not that woman anymore. When I’m away from Port Charles, I don’t think about Jax.

Sonny: And when you’re there?

Nina: I think about you.

Sonny: And that’s a bad thing?

Nina: I should know better.

Sonny: Know better than to get together with a man like me?

Nina: I should know better than… to think I could make it work here. But I do dream about it. I dream. Mike, I think about you all the time. And when you called me and said for me to come home, it just seemed so right. But how could I possibly stay here? How could I make a life here?

Sonny: How could you not?

Finn: Can’t be certain about what you know… but I am certain I wouldn’t be very good at lying to you. Nor do I want to, so here we go.

No, don’t say another word. Just let me speak. Peter was supposed to be alone on the roof, but he wasn’t. And it spooked the helicopter pilot, and he backed off. But not before registering Peter’s companion — tall man, dark hair, wearing a suit. No one fitting that description has come forward. No one’s admitted to being on the roof with Peter. So Valentin and I, you know, we — we threw around a couple of theories. First theory is that person was a-an accomplice, but if that was the case, Peter would have insisted that the pilot land and he would be gone. That didn’t happen. Second theory is we’re not looking for an accomplice but an adversary, someone who went to the roof to confront Peter, stop him from escaping. But then why didn’t that person come forward, help law enforcement track him down? Perhaps there was an altercation. Perhaps things got out of hand. Perhaps something happened to — to Peter, something unintended that put this witness in an impossible situation. Maybe he can’t come forward because it will put his future at risk… and the future of everyone who relies on him.

[ Door opens ]

Elizabeth: Finn, I just spoke to —

Jason: Yeah, the cameras covering the roof and roof access. I need them to go down for about an hour, starting now. Can you, uh — can you hack them? Alright. Thanks, Spinelli.

Sonny: I know you have your whole life in Port Charles, and… if you don’t want to walk away from that, I understand. But that’s — that’s not what I’m asking. You know, Wiley — you can visit Wiley anytime you want. It’s only like, what, a couple hours’ drive?

Nina: Yeah. Are you making a case for me to stay here?

Sonny: How am I doing?

Nina: Oh, you’re doing great. It’s very sweet.

Sonny: Alright.

Nina: But it’s — it’s not really necessary because… Mike, I’m… not really concerned about keeping and maintaining my life in Port Charles. I’m… I’m really worried that my life in Port Charles is gonna come here… taint what I have with you.

Sonny: Well, you know, I know the feeling ’cause I’ve been wondering when that… old me is gonna show up, and I got to be honest with you, I don’t want — I don’t want him to. When I grabbed that gun… it was — it was a-a feeling that I had inside. It was very uncomfortable, and it scared me. I will risk losing my old life if it means… having you in my life.

Jax: So you turned down a plea bargain because you refused to give evidence — state evidence against Sonny. You chose prison so Sonny could stay out of it?

Shawn: Given how things ended for Sonny, I came out ahead of the game.

Jax: And how many years did Sonny get to enjoy his life while you were stuck behind bars?

Shawn: Look, Sonny wasn’t the only person to walk around free while I was in Pentonville. I didn’t shoot Hayden. Someone else wanted her dead. That person was never charged, never even investigated. I’m gonna find them.

Sam: And that’s where you come in. Shawn thinks that Hayden knows who was behind the shooting. If you help us find Hayden, we can finally put the right guy behind bars.

Nikolas: [ Sighs ] Enjoy the view, you son of a bitch.

Alexis: Oh, that’s mature. Just so you know, he didn’t approach me. I approached him.

Nikolas: I was relieved that you were transferred out of Pentonville. Had I known that this is where you would land, sharing quarters with Ryan Chamberlain, I would have broken you out and been done with it.

Alexis: You should probably know that talk about jailbreaks is not a good idea in here. Not even in jest.

Nikolas: Was I joking?

Alexis: You’ve already done enough for me, and I appreciate it.

Nikolas: I may have one string left to pull. I don’t like you in close proximity with Ryan.

Alexis: Look at him. He can’t move, can’t speak. He’s probably not gonna be able to murder anybody. Anyway, I don’t want to talk about him. I want to talk about you. Hi. How you doing?

Nikolas: [ Chuckles ] I’m up and down. Spencer’s home.

Alexis: [ Gasps ] That’s great.

Nikolas: Yeah, I’m so glad to have him back. Unfortunately… I might be losing my wife.

Britt: You’re still here.

Jason: Something came up.

Britt: Like a conversation with my boss? You said you were going to see her. You didn’t say something about me, did you? Because that would be really crappy of you to interfere with my work like that.

Jason: No, I haven’t talked to Monica about you. Why would I?

Britt: I don’t know. I don’t get why you do half the things you do.

[ Elevator bell dings ]

Jason: I have to go.

Britt: Of course you do. [ Chuckles ]

Jason: [ Sighs ]

Britt: You owe me $19.97 — for the toothbrush head on my electric toothbrush. I bought a pack when I thought you might stay over. Just give me $5 since it was a pack of four and one was for you. I didn’t need a replacement head yet. I was trying to think of your comfort.

Jason: I got — I got $20.

Britt: Just Venmo me.

Elizabeth: Dr. Finn, I need you for a consult.

Finn: Dr. Goodman’s on duty. I’m dealing with something right now.

Elizabeth: Is everything okay?

Finn: Yeah, everything’s okay. Hey. Don’t worry. So, now what?

Anna: I don’t know what happened on that roof, but if Peter was trying to escape and he was somehow prevented from doing so, I think the person who prevented him would be given a great deal of consideration. That is, if an accident occurred during that encounter.

Finn: It’s too bad you’re not in charge of doling out considerations. There’s no telling what, uh, the police or a judge might do.

Anna: I know. What I also know is that if I followed Peter’s trail here, the police won’t be far behind because they have the pilot in custody and he’s going to have given them the same description of the man on the roof that he gave me. Whoever encountered Peter that day has one chance to get out in front of this… and one chance to have me stand by his side.

Sam:  If I can remember correctly, when Hayden first came into town, the two of you were seemingly close.

Jax: Oh, no, no, no. No, she was just trying to make Finn jealous. We were never more than business associates.

Sam:  [ Sighs ]

Shawn: You didn’t reach out to Hayden when she took off? She didn’t reach out to you?

Jax: No, I did. I tried, but all communication was cut off. Look, Hayden wasn’t my favorite person, but she was trying to create a better life for her and her child.  They seemed really close. She just met Finn, and — and suddenly, he was her only parent. I mean, I-I tried everything to — to find Hayden and bring her back.

Shawn: But no luck.

Jax: None.

Sam:  It doesn’t make any sense. Why wouldn’t Hayden at least try to contact her daughter or reach out or communicate somehow?

Jax: Well, maybe by staying away, it somehow protects Violet.

Alexis: I’m sorry about Ava. I didn’t know things had gotten so bad. Is there any hope?

Nikolas: Ava’s adamant about going through with the divorce.

Alexis: Well, what about a compromise? Legal separation?

Nikolas: Ava won’t consider it. How can I blame her? I mean, the stalker — he’s broken into Wyndemere, our hotel room, Ava’s gallery. He’s even targeted little Avery. That was the deal-breaker.

Alexis: Do the police have any leads?

Nikolas: They’re working on something, but they refuse to keep me in the loop. All they know for sure is that the stalker is exploiting Ryan’s obsession with Ava.

Alexis: Ryan? It can’t be him.

Nikolas: Yeah, so it would appear. What if it’s a-a fan or a wannabe or a familiar, someone who is just trying to impress Ryan by, uh, following in his footsteps, doing his dirty work? I have to find this bastard before it becomes too late for me and Ava.

Alexis: You know, you’re not gonna get anywhere until you can rule out a connection to Ryan. I mean, it’s too bad that you don’t have anybody that’s close enough to this to suss it out. Oh, wait.

Elizabeth: Jason, I went to see Finn to tell him that we talked, and Anna was there. I have a really bad feeling she knows.

Terry: Crazy question, but is it possible Britt Westbourne doesn’t entirely deserve her reputation?

Elizabeth: That is crazy.

Terry: It goes against conventional wisdom, maybe, but I don’t know. Maybe beneath her snarky exterior lurks a woman who’s desperate for companionship and compassion, hoping someone will hear her cry.

Elizabeth: She once made flambé out of a little girl’s doll.

Terry: No coming back from that, huh?

Elizabeth: I have better things to think about than Britt Westbourne. Why are you suddenly trying to unearth compassion for her, anyway?

Terry: I’m just looking for a way to charm and disarm her, but you’re right. There are better things to talk about, like what’s going on with you, Biz?

Anna:  I know my word counts for very little these days, and I wouldn’t blame anyone for being reluctant to put their fate in my hands. I’ve broken a lot of people’s trust, and I can’t apologize enough.

Finn: Hey, you don’t have to do this.

Anna:  No, I do. I do. ‘Cause I can’t let Peter… or whatever’s happened to him… I can’t let it ruin another person’s life. It was you. You were on the roof with him. Tell me what happened.

Finn: Better…if I show you.

Nina: There’s that smile again. [ Laughs ]

Sonny: [ Laughs ] I’m just happy to see you. You know, last time you left, I had to do everything I could to — to memorize your face.

Nina: Yeah.

Sonny: Yeah.

Nina: It’s too bad, like, phones don’t have cameras and stuff like that.

Sonny: Oh, that’s a nice little, uh, way to kill the mood.

Nina: I’m sorry. I couldn’t help it. Forgive me. Forgive me. But you don’t have to memorize my face. I’m gonna be around.

Sonny: I’m happy for that. Why don’t I just take a selfie for — just for — you know what I mean?

Nina: Alright, let’s do it.

Sonny: Let’s see.

Nina: You know how to use it?

Sonny: I’m — I’m — yeah, I do know how to use it.

Nina: Okay, ’cause I’m here to help you.

Sonny: [ Laughs ]

Nina: Okay. Wait.

Sonny: Okay, ready?

Nina: Cheese.

[ Camera shutter clicks ]

Nina: Perfect.

Sonny: Oh, you look great.

Nina: Thank you. You know what?

Sonny: What?

Nina: I should have had some coffee instead of these beers because I’m just getting so tired. You know, it’s that drive back here. Maybe I should go and settle in before we have to take Lenny to his treatment tomorrow.

Sonny: Oh, I know. That’s not gonna be fun, right?

Nina: Mnh-mnh.

Sonny: Yeah, you should go. You’re probably tired and the whole thing.

Nina: [ Groans ]

Sonny: So, uh, this is better than coffee.

Nina: Huh?

Sonny: Remember last time you left, we made a deal? And I said, “why don’t — w-why — I’ll give you my — my sauce, my special sauce, in exchange for a dance,” when you came back, right?

Nina: I remember that.

Sonny: Alright. Well, I’m ready to collect.

Nina: Mm-hmm? Yeah. How can I resist?

In your eyes is where I wanna…

Nina: Oh. Ooh. Smooth. You didn’t miss a step.

Sonny: I’ve been practicing.

Nina: Oh, you’ve been practicing.

Sonny: Yeah.

Nina: I think you’re kind of a natural. One of your many, many talents. I should go. [ Sighs ] Now I should go.

Sonny: [ Chuckles ] You better go.

Nina: Yeah. I’ll, um… I’ll see you tomorrow.

Sonny: Alright. Forget something?

Nina: Hey, Mike.

Sonny: [ Laughs ]

Nina: I let it simmer until it was hot.

Sonny: Mm.

Nina: Best sauce I’ve ever had.

[ Door closes ]

Jax: Well, if you pick up Hayden’s trail again, my resources are at your disposal.

Sam: Thank you, Jax.

Shawn: Appreciate that.

Jax: Yeah, absolutely.

Sam: We knew it was a long shot that you had a way to contact Hayden, but we had to take it.

Jax: Have you tried Elizabeth, Hayden’s sister? I mean, if there’s anyone that Hayden would feel safe communicating with, it would be her.

Sam: Okay.

Jax: And just one more thing — Hayden and I were working together with Nikolas. He brought us all together on some scheme to regain his family fortune.

Sam: Oh.

Jax: So you might want to start with him.

Nikolas: Forget it. I don’t want you putting yourself in Ryan’s sights.

Alexis: I’m just gonna keep an eye on him. What’s the big deal?

Nikolas: He’s a psychopath.

Alexis: Look at him. He’s just staring at the corner. He’s gonna continue to sit there and stare at the corner until somebody comes in and turns him around and wheels him out of here.

Nikolas: Alexis, you were fortunate to be transferred from Pentonville. Quit while you’re ahead. Don’t go looking for more trouble.

Alexis: I’m not looking for more trouble, so don’t worry, okay? I think I can handle a deactivated serial killer.

Elizabeth: Sorry. I’m just distracted.

Terry: Distracted or upset? Because there’s a difference.

Britt: Nurse Baldwin! Dr. Randolph.

Elizabeth: Excuse me. I have to pick up some labs.

Britt: You and your bestie catching up on the hot goss?

Terry: Actually, I was about to ask Elizabeth a question about dental hygiene. How often do you change your toothbrush, Dr. Westbourne? Manufacturers do recommend between three and four months, but I can only go one. Call me extravagant, but nothing short of a good, stiff bristle will do.

Britt: [ Laughs ] Were you eavesdropping on me?

Terry: When I was choosing where to go to med school, I almost turned down my first choice because my ex was going there, too. The thought of taking gross anatomy with that cretin was almost more than I could bear. But then I got a grip. Hell if I was gonna turn down one of the best schools in the country and let my ex think I was floundering because of him.

Britt: If I turn down a demotion, it won’t be because of Jason.

Terry: One — it’s not a demotion, and two — are you sure?

[ Knock on door ]

Monica: What is it, Robert?

Robert: The security cameras, the ones Mr. Renault had turned off to cover his illegal comings and goings?

Monica: Yes. You — you re-installed them. So what is it?

Robert: We installed software to alert us to future tampering. The alarms are sounding. Someone’s trying to get in.

Elizabeth: It’s Elizabeth. I need your help.

Anna: Whoa. Haven’t been down here since Olivia Jerome took Griffin.

Finn:  Yeah, it’s been here a long time. The hospital tried to keep it sealed off without much success.

Anna: Yeah. Is this where Peter went? Did he hide out here before he escaped? Did he escape?

Finn:  No. He’s in there.

On the next “General Hospital” —

On the next “General Hospital” —

Portia (to Trina): How are you feeling about all of that?

Jordan (to Stella): I also found the answer I was looking for.

Elizabeth (to Scott): How does the law define justifiable homicide?

Anna (to Finn): You couldn’t have done it alone.

Finn: There’s nothing left to say.

Shawn (to Curtis): I was hoping you could help me out.

Josslyn (to Carly): Is that what happened between you and Jason?

Jason (on the phone): There’s something else I need you to do.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ashland: I have a minor anxiety attack and you start to question if the merger was a mistake. I didn’t know you were an alarmist.

Victoria: I’m not an alarmist. I just want to make sure that we’re doing everything in your best interest.

Ashland: This merger is the most exciting thing that I have done in my career. I do not have one single regret.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Look, panic attacks don’t happen for no reason. Didn’t you just admit that these attacks are — are because you’re — you’re giving up things that are very important to you?

Ashland: I wasn’t talking about my business. And look at how everything’s changed — my marriage, the child that I thought was my flesh and blood, this diagnosis that is gonna steal my life away and the legacy that I was hoping to create by passing my business along to my son and teaching him how to run it. This is the burden that I wake up to every morning, and you are the one thing that keeps it all from getting so much worse.

Victoria: I’m glad that I’m helping. I just wish that it was enough to keep these attacks from happening. But I believe that there’s a way that you can stop them.

Billy: I’m really sorry to hear that. Yeah, I’m available tomorrow. You just let me know. You as well. Thank you.

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Problem?

Billy: My meeting just canceled on me.

Phyllis: Mm. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

Billy: No one cancels on you.

Phyllis: No, no one ever. If you want to avoid last-minute appointment cancelations, why don’t you bring lily? No one would cancel on her.

Billy: Oh, you’re right. No one cancels on lily. Unfortunately, she can’t be here. She took a last-minute trip to go see mattie. So my meeting’s canceled. I’m here all alone. Maybe we should connect and figure out what’s going on with tara.

Phyllis: So your theory that sally and tara are working together? From what I’ve seen, you are 1,000% correct.

Kyle: What do you think about taking harrison to a pool party for kids at the grand phoenix this weekend?

Tara: That does sound like fun. But maybe we could find some alternatives.

Kyle: Well, if you’re worried about lifeguards or supervision —

Tara: It’s phyllis. I don’t think she likes me very much.

Kyle: Oh, I don’t think you need to worry about that. She feels the same way about half the people in this town.

Tara: I wasn’t a big fan of the way she just made herself welcome at our table yesterday.

Kyle: Yeah, you’ll have to learn how to take her with a grain of salt.

Tara: I hate saying anything ’cause I know she was almost your mother-in-law, but…

Kyle: What?

Tara: I think she feels like I’m somehow responsible for summer taking that job in italy.

Kyle: Well, you are responsible.

Sharon: Ooh. Darn it.

Moses: You can keep the heat. I mean, I’ll take a cold, crisp winter day anytime.

Faith: No offense, but that’s a little bonkers. Who likes ice and snow?

Sharon: Hey, you twO. You want something to drink?

Moses: Oh, yeah, I’ll take a lemonade. Thanks.

Faith: I still can’t believe that tigirlily was right here in this coffee house.

Moses: Yeah, it was pretty dope, right?

Faith: I can’t wait to see them perform at the new hope charity concert. What do you think, mom?

Sharon: Yeah, that sounds great. Maybe adam will be back from minnesota by then.

Faith: You mean rey?

Sharon: Yeah. That’s what I said.

Faith: No, you said adam.

Sharon: Oh, well, obviously, I meant rey. I’m just really anxious for him to come home. You know, I have too much on my mind today. Tiffany called and said she’s gonna be a little bit late for her shift. You know, would you mind taking over here for a little while? I think you’re up for it now, aren’t you?

Faith: What if someone comes in with a super-complicated order? Espresso macchiato with steamed soy milk and lemon zest or something.

Sharon: You’ll be fine. And, you know, you won’t be here that long by yourself.

Faith: Wait, where are you going?

Sharon: Errands.

Chelsea: Anita’s doing well.

Adam: That’s good.

Chelsea: Yeah, she’s gonna need a lot more physical therapy, though. For such a minor surgery, she’s facing a lengthy recovery.

Adam: Hmm. Well, I’m sure that’s frustrating for her.

Chelsea: Yeah. But being able to see connor so much, it puts her in a good mood.

Adam: I know how she feels. How’s he doing?

Chelsea: He’s really good. You know, anita takes any opportunity she can to tell people all about her brilliant grandson. She’s so proud of him, and connor, of course, loves the attention.

Adam: I’m glad.

Chelsea: I don’t think i would’ve been able to do this without him, so thank you for letting me bring him along with me and putting your foot down with victor. I know you didn’t have to do that, and it means a lot to me. I’ll forever be grateful.

Adam: That is all great to hear. That is the reason that I wanted connor to go on this trip with you in the first place. But, chelsea, it’s time to start talking about when to bring him home. We’re eating and drinking foods and beverages

provided by…

Chelsea: You want connor home already? We just got here.

Adam: He has lacrosse camp starting in a few days, and it wouldn’t be fair to upend his entire summer schedule for this.

Chelsea: We have plans, adam, things we want to do when grandma has her appointments. There’s this — this “evolution of the video game” exhibit at the museum and new baby snow monkeys at the zoo.

Adam: I assumed you would be doing all sorts of fun stuff, and I don’t want to rob you of your time with him, so when anita is better and you are able to come back, we can make up for it by giving you as much time with connor as you want, here in genoa city. All we’re doing is we’re just pushing the activities a little further down the road. That is all.

Chelsea: But [Sighs] How will he get home?

Adam: Connor can go with rey. As I understand, he’s supposed to come back in a day or two. That’ll be simple. He can drive our son home.

Chelsea: Adam, let him stay a little while longer, please.

Adam: I know your time with connor means a lot to you, and I’m aware that it means a lot to him, too. That’s why I thought it was important for you to go on this trip together, so that he could be reassured that you’re healthy. But he has seen that now.

Chelsea: Yeah, he knows I’m okay.

Adam: You can video chat. And it won’t be long until you can see him again. That is what’s important.

Chelsea: You’re right.

Kyle: That didn’t come out the way I wanted it to.

Tara: I should hope not.

Kyle: Yeah, well, what i meant was I certainly don’t blame you for summer leaving. Harrison is my kid and this is my life now, and I wouldn’t change that for anything. But it still put a burden on summer, and that’s nobody’s fault. Just is how it is. That’s why summer chose to leave. Apparently it was too much for her to handle.

Tara: “Apparently”?

Kyle: There’s part of me that wants to think there was more to it. I mean, she kept saying she was fine with the way things were, that she understood, so when she did that 180, it threw me. But…I guess it wasn’t as huge of a change in her attitude as i told myself. Signs were all there. I just didn’t want to see them. In a way, leaving me was… it was honest. Incredibly so. She broke my heart in ways that I couldn’t have dreamed of. But she felt the way she did and she did what she had to do.

Tara: Sorry.

Kyle: No. It’s not your fault.

Tara: I didn’t mean for you to open up about this. It’s your business. It’s not your job to make me feel better about all of this.

Kyle: Actually, it is my job to make this okay for all of us, including harrison. Look, I accept that responsibility, which is why i was wondering…

Tara: Yes, kyle?

Kyle: How would you feel if i asked sharon rosales to come by? I can call her and see if she has any free time.

Tara: Oh, I’ve — I met her at the coffee house. But why would you suggest that?

Kyle: Well, in addition to running crimson lights, she’s a therapist who has worked with kids and she might have good ideas on how to talk to harrison about locke’s illness.

Tara: I see.

Kyle: Okay, I know you have strong feelings about keeping ashland away from harrison after what happened at the park, but i want to make sure we go and do things the right way.

Tara: You amaze me. You never stop thinking about how we can make things better for our son.

Kyle: Any father would do the same.

Tara: Oh, you’re not just any father. You really are the best.

Victoria: All you have to do is just take one simple step.

Ashland: I know where this conversation is going because we have been here before. You want me to get treatment for the cancer.

Victoria: Yes, I do, because controlling your health will help alleviate the stress that you’re feeling. Yes, you can do yoga, you can do all the breathing, and that will help, but I’m talking about the real cause of it. You’re struggling right now because you feel like you’re out of control.

Ashland: I don’t want to keep having this circular conversation over and over again. If you were any other person on this earth, you wouldn’t dare keep revisiting this same thing day after day. I’ve told you again and again, I do not want treatment.

Victoria: And I can’t let it go.E I’M…[Sighs] This thing that’s happening between us is just getting so much stronger, deeper. I know I’m being so selfish, but I just want this to last as long as possible.

Ashland: As do I. But I do not want to experience some god-awful side effects just so I can add an extra half-hour to my life.

Victoria: And I don’t want that for you. But I keep thinking about your reasoning. You admit that you’re having these powerful anxiety attacks that can knock you to the ground. Do you know that’s a hell of a thing to hear from the toughest man that I’ve met in my life? You are a control freak.

Ashland: I beg your pardon?

Victoria: In the best possible way.

Ashland: Ah.

Victoria: You’re upfront about your power position and you don’t let anyone doubt you. It’s who you are. It’s how you’ve defined yourself. It’s how you’ve always defined yourself. Until now. You are letting this disease be the thing that defines you, and that — I’m sorry — I just — i can’t understand. Try our new scented oils for freshness that lasts.

Chloe: Chloe mitchell reporting for duty.

Adam: Welcome to your first day at newman media.

Chloe: Thanks. I think. Am I brave or just crazy? Because never, not even in my most wild nightmares, did I ever expect this happening.

Adam: Well, I am glad that you decided to come on board. Are you looking for something?

Chloe: Um…you know, just checking for booby traps.

Adam: [ Laughs ]

Chloe: Just in case your offer wasn’t the altruistic gesture you claimed it to be. Do you mind if I indulge myself?

Adam: Oh, no, please, be my guest, chloe. Satisfied?

Chloe: Yeah. For now. So, um, chelsea left me a message yesterday. She told me that she had a great visit with connor, and that never would’ve happened if you hadn’t agreed to it, so good move.

Adam: Connor’s actually going to be coming home in a couple days.

Chloe: Wait, already? I mean, just when chelsea is getting her relationship back with her son and finally in a good place, you’re already pulling the plug?

Adam: I’m just trying to make sure everyone gets what they need. Not that I owe you an explanation. So why don’t we just focus on work?

Chloe: That’s probably for the best.

Adam: When you check out your new office, you’ll see that I’ve set you up with everything you need to dive right in. I’m giving you free reign to develop the fashion platform, including hiring your own team, because I trust your fashion instincts and because I have none of my own.

Chloe: So when chelsea does come back and when she’s ready to live her free life, you are still willing to let her be onboard.

Adam: I have no reason to go back on my word. I think it would be good for chelsea.

Chloe: You do? So you’re not setting chelsea up the same way you did with connor — make a promise, then break it?

Adam: That’s not going to happen.

Chloe: Okay. Got to wonder. No one plays mind games like you do, and maybe this [Chuckles] Was just all an act going way back to when you first offered me the job. Give me what I want, make me happy, keep me quiet. And this new leaf of yours is just one big act.

Faith: Making the perfect cup of coffee is a science. I figure once I excel at the simple stuff, the classics, then I can branch out, spice things up. I was thinking about trying a cold brew latte next.

Moses: No.

Faith: What’s wrong?

Moses: Please don’t hate me, but I can’t drink another ounce of your experiments. My hands are jittery, my life is flashing before my eyes. Just please no more caffeine.

Faith: I will never excel as a master barista with that lack of support. Speaking of careers, what’s going on with your future plans?

Moses: Well, actually, I was talking with devon, and a career in music might be worth checking out.

Faith: What’s nate got to say about that?

Moses: Not much. I mean, we haven’t really had time to talk about it. But what I can say is I’m really excited for going backstage at the new hope concert, see how everything comes together. Medicine is great, intellectually, but music —

Faith: Dr. Hastings! What can I get for you?

Nate: Uh, let me get just an espresso. Hey, bud. Listen, I know we haven’t had a chance to talk about things yet. But before we do, I want you to think long and hard about what you really want. Ask yourself if you really want to go into medicine. And consider what you’d be giving up if you don’T.

Faith: Either way, I think we can all agree on one thing. Moses should do the thing that makes him the happiest, right?

Nate: Of course.

Phyllis: So you were definitely right about tara and sally. I saw them commiserating right here. They…

[ Sighs ] They drove my daughter out of town.

Billy: You’re sure about that.

Phyllis: Well, pretty sure about that. I mean, they both benefited. Sally has her job at jcv. The other one has her ex-fiancé.

Billy: Not exactly sure tara’s capable of pulling all that off.

Phyllis: Oh, well, she’s relying on harrison to do it for her. Harrison is an abbott that jack and kyle didn’t even know about until now.

Billy: Because tara kept the truth from kyle.

Phyllis: Exactly. Of course, they can’t see that. All they see is a little boy who needs their love. I mean, hell, it was hard for me to accept that those two manipulated my daughter so, but they did. Tara and sally, they’re in this together, for sure. I mean, tara’s getting close to the abbotts because she doesn’t want to give up her gilded lifestyle.

Billy: Which makes it open season on poor, vulnerable kyle. And if you’re tara, hooking up with your son’s biological father sure does tick a lot of boxes, doesn’t it?

Phyllis: You know, there’s one other thing I don’t understand. Summer recommended sally for her job at jcv.

Billy: You kidding me? Why?

Phyllis: I don’t know. I mean, honestly, it was soul-crushing for me to hear that. But she did. I mean, she hates sally.

Billy: And you think summer’s hand was forced somehow?

Phyllis: I don’t know. We just need to find out why she was manipulated. And we need to expose it, and then my daughter will come home.

Billy: Well, if that is your plan, phyllis, there is one question to be asked. Are you sure that summer wants to come home? With voltaren arthritis pain gel

Chloe: This “new adam” thing is just a hoax. And I’m gonna make sure the whole world knows it.

Adam: Fine. You saw right through me, chloe. Your job was a trap. It’s a joke. Get out of my office. Right now.

Chloe: You know, I knew it. I knew it was too good to be true, and you just proved it. You have not changed one damn bit. Well, you know what? I’m not intimidated. I’m not going anywhere because we had a contract. In fact, I had michael look it over to make sure it was legit.

Adam: Oh, that’s a great idea. I assume he said it was.

Chloe: Yes, he did.

Adam: Good to know. There’s the door. Oh, and take that with you.

Chloe: What’s this? A restraining order? Because that’s what it’s gonna take to keep me away from here.

Adam: That’ll be the key to your new office. You’re going to need it.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] Wait, you — what? Wh–

Adam: Look, I know that you were pushing my buttons, trying to get a reaction out of me. Was that the one that you wanted, chloe?

Chloe: [ Sighs ] You know, your pretend anger is very convincing.

Adam: Well, we needed to get that out of the way if we’re gonna work together.

Chloe: And we are.

Adam: And, yes, we do have a valid contract and I’m gonna hold you to it. And, yes, I want you to bring chelsea in on the project when the time is right.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] You are a real piece of work.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Look, I know that you’ll never trust me fully, but I do accept the challenge that you will come around eventually, because if you can one day see me in a new light, anyone can.

Chloe: Well, I better get going. I have work to get done. But in the meantime, don’t hold your breath.

Phyllis: Are you saying that my daughter wouldn’t want to come back into town? I mean, she loves genoa city. She loves her family. I inspire her.

Billy: Look, this is just a reminder that whatever dirty tricks sally and tara have played, summer did get her dream job. She is a smart, talented person in the fashion capital of the world. What other ambitious person wouldn’t want to be in her shoes?

Phyllis: I mean, well, that’s true. But, I mean, she would sacrifice the love of her life?

Billy: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: What? Please tell me.

Billy: Look, I am fond of both kyle and summer, no matter what you think about me. But the love of her life? That’s a little wishful thinking with all the ups and downs that they’ve had.

Phyllis: So you think they would have broken up anyway?

Billy: Before summer left, i encouraged kyle to take one more shot to get her to stay, and she didn’T. She left and she has left before. So all I’m saying is maybe sally and tara hastened the demise of their relationship.

Phyllis: I know why people cancel their meetings with you, ’cause you’re a bum-out. I’m not gonna accept your pessimistic attitude about my daughter’s love life or about whether she wants to come home or not.

Billy: Well, that’s because you’re her mother.

Phyllis: No, it’s because she was manipulated into leaving town is why. My daughter will want to come back to reclaim what is rightfully hers. She is her mother’s daughter.

[ Sighs ] Sally and tara did this. They pushed my daughter out of town. And we must expose this. I cannot — i will not let this stand.

Kyle: Please, sharon, have a seat. So I assume you’ve seen the video of ashland and harrison at the park.

Sharon: I have.

Kyle: It was an isolated incident, a rare occurrence of everything going wrong that could’ve gone wrong. But it was awful for harrison seeing the man he calls father like that, and so tara and i think it’s important that we have a solid plan.

Sharon: Okay, um, well, I’m not sure what you mean exactly. What kind of plan?

Kyle: Like what amount of access for ashland is right given the situation and how do we talk to harrison about locke’s illness.

Tara: We just want to do the best thing for our son, to protect him.

Sharon: Well, I worry about the impulse to eliminate ashland from the conversation about his own disease, and it could send a message to harrison that illness and death are unnatural or something to be hidden. And you wouldn’t want harrison to grow up feeling afraid of people who have impairments or deal with certain challenges. And if you do limit their contact, harrison will feel abandoned by his dad, and then he’ll probably blame himself and wonder what he did wrong. I think what harrison needs to know right now, above everything else, is that his father loves him, despite everything.

Kyle: What do you think is the best course of action?

Sharon: I think that tara and ashland need to talk to harrison together, and I would be loving and gentle, but, above all, be truthful.

Kyle: That makes so much sense. It’s exactly what we needed to hear. Advil dual action fights pain 2 ways.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Kyle: What’d you think?

Tara: Sharon’s very knowledgeable. And it was so generous of her to share her thoughts and opinions with us, but for me, it isn’t just about that monday in the park. Ashland isn’t just a man who gets what he wants, he smashes anyone who tries to get in his way. And if I try to talk to him about this, that is the side that’s gonna emerge. And he’s already furious with me about trying to get sole custody of harrison.

Kyle: I think on some level, ashland knows he overreacted in the park, and he may even understand why you reacted the way you did. Look, I’m not saying the conversation will be easy, but if I’m right about ashland, it may not be that hard. And maybe it will lead to a compromise that helps harrison. That is what this is all about, right?

Tara: I just hate living my life under a microscope.

Kyle: No, no one is judging you, tara.

Tara: Oh, no? Ash resents me for trying to protect our little boy. Phyllis has crazy ideas about my motives and is trying to get me to admit to something. And now I’m worried that you and jack are going to judge me, too. All I have ever wanted is to do what’s best for our son.

Kyle: My father and I will always be in your corner, no matter what. And when it comes to phyllis, you let me handle her. But this stalemate with locke has to end, for harrison’s sake, and I know deep down you agree.

Victoria: Do you like the tea?

Ashland: Well, it smells like fresh-cut lawn, but let me guess, it’s good for me.

Victoria: I just — I thought that maybe you needed something restorative after your episode.

[ Sighs ] Is it helping?

Ashland: Uh, it wasn’t necessary, but I truly appreciate it. Just being around you, I feel exponentially better.

Victoria: Have you given any more thought to what I said?

Ashland: Of course I have.

Victoria: But you’re not changing your mind, are you? Because it’s too hard for the great and powerful ashland locke to admit that I’m right and he is wrong. I know what I said before was a little bit manipulative, but I’m running out of ways to make you see that you’ve made your decision in haste. I think a lot has changed since you declared that you’re not interested in seeking treatment. We’ve merged our companies.

Ashland: We have. And we became us.

Victoria: You are such a force. You still have so much to give, and I want to get as much as i can.

Ashland: I’d forgotten how greedy you are.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Yes, there is something in it for me, but there is so much in it for you, too, and I promise you, any extra time you get will be a gift. I will personally see to it.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone rings ]

[ Sighs ] It’s tara. I should probably get this. I’m so sorry.

Victoria: No, it’s fine. Of course.

Tara: Hello, ashland.

Ashland: What’s this about?

Tara: Harrison. I’d like to meet. We have a lot to discuss.

Sharon: Rey, hi. I just — I just needed to hear your voice. I do hope you’ll be coming home soon. Call me when you’re free. Love you.

Adam: Sharon.

Sharon: [ Gasps ] Oh, gosh!

[ Sighs ] Are you following me now? To be a thriver

Kyle: When ashland arrives, I’ll get the door, I’ll show him in, and then I’ll join you on the couch to show him that we are united. What do you think?

Tara: I think you have put a lot of thought into this.

Kyle: I only want to help.

Tara: But I should probably do this part on my own.

Kyle: You sure about that?

Tara: You’re very sweet, but I can handle him.

Kyle: Okay. I’ll give you your space. It’s probably good that harrison’s still at his play date. But I wonder…

Tara: What I’ll say about custody? Guess that depends on what ash is like when he gets here.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Geez, I say “hello,” and I’m suddenly stalking you?

Sharon: No, I-I didn’t mean that. I really apologize. I’ve just been really jumpy the last few days, and then you just came out of nowhere.

Adam: Well, it is a public park in broad daylight. You never know what’s lurking around the corner. It could be crying babies or suspicious looking butterflies. So what has you all spooked?

Sharon: Um, our conversation the other night. You know, you completely turned that around and made it about us.

Adam: I wasn’t aware that i did that. We were talking about people’s perception of me. I mean, billy had just accused me of putting on a performance to try to get you back. I mean, the conversation just flowed from that.

Sharon: Well, but then before I knew it, we were talking about which one I liked better — good adam or bad adam. And I don’t know what that had to do with anything. And just so you know, I don’t feel pull towards either side of you. Right now what I feel pulled toward is rey, who is going to be coming home soon after being out of town looking after your ex of all people. So don’t try to rope me in to talking about our history. It’s in the past.

Nate: Hey.

Victoria: Hey.

[ Sighs ] I’m so glad you could make it.

Nate: I’ve got to admit, i was surprised to get your call, but always happy to make time for you. Everything okay?

Victoria: With me, yes. I’m great. I just wanted to pick your brain on behalf of a friend.

Nate: Okay, I’ll help if i can.

Victoria: Look, I know it’s not your specialty, but I have always respected your abilities so much. My friend has been diagnosed with small cell lung carcinoma.

Nate: I’m sorry to hear that.

Victoria: Until now, he’s been resistant to treatment, but I was hoping that maybe I could learn a few things to give him a reason to consider some of the options.

Nate: I read the news and i watch tv. I have a pretty good sense of who you’re talking about.

Victoria: No names.

Nate: Understood. I should tell you I recently had a similar conversation with billy. He had questions about a hypothetical friend’s health. Shortly after, those articles from chanccomm went online.

Victoria: Did he mention any names?

Nate: No, he kept it anonymous. Didn’t reveal many details, but it’s clear to me you’re talking about the same person.

Victoria: I’m not surprised that billy asked you about this, but honestly, I don’t want to get into why he’s curious. I’m only interested in what you have to tell me.

Ice t, stone cold calling on

Adam: [ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ]

Chloe: Hey.

Adam: Chloe. Come iN.

Chloe: I e-mailed you some designs, some other ideas I want you to take a look at.

Adam: You don’t waste any time, do you?

Chloe: Get back to me when you can.

Adam: Yeah, you can count on it.

Chloe: Thanks.

Faith: I’ve been working on my latte art. It’s a heart. What do you think? Hi, mom.

Moses: It kind of looks like a pineapple. But it’s cool.

Faith: What do you think, mom?

Sharon: Good work.

Faith: Is everything okay?

Sharon: Yeah, sure.

Faith: You seemed a little off before you left.

Sharon: Oh, I was just thinking about rey and worried. He can’t get home soon enough as far as I’m concerned.

Victoria: My eyes are wide open. I’m aware of conventional treatments — radiation, chemotherapy. I know that this is realistically not a conversation about a cure, it’s about buying time. And making the most of that time.

Nate: I’m glad you have a clear-eyed view on this. With this type of cancer, you’re talking small percentages, low probability of success, small amounts of time.

Victoria: I understand that, but there must be scientists out there somewhere trying to combat this. New drugs, different approaches. I want to hear about clinical trials and promising experimental treatments on the horizon. Anything like that. Nothing’s off the table.

Nate: Yeah, these are great questions. And as you’ve said, oncology is not my specialty, but I’ll be more than happy to confer with colleagues and see what’s out there.

Victoria: Thank you. That’s wonderful of you. Thank you.

Nate: Just doing my job.

Victoria: You’re being modest. I know that you have a lot on your plate right now, but I have to give my friend something, anything, present him with an option that maybe he hasn’t heard of before. That might help him make a decision.

Tara: Thanks for getting here so quickly.

Ashland: Where is your entourage of abbotts?

Tara: I just wanted it to be the two of us. We need to talk about how we’re gonna explain things to harrison.

Ashland: Things. You mean my diagnosis.

Tara: This is something I’m willing to do as a team.

Ashland: A team? Well, that is something that we are no longer, and you made that crystal clear when you went for sole custody.

Tara: Don’t make this any more difficult than it already is.

Ashland: Oh, I should make it easy for you? Why? Are you having a bad day?

Tara: I’m making an effort.

Ashland: The only effort that I care about is the one you made trying to keep harrison from ever seeing me again.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: Hey, phyllis.

Phyllis: Yeah? Can I help you?

Kyle: Simple request. Tell me what the hell you’re doing to tara.
