Update written by Joseph

Allie questions Tripp about Chanel and Johnny almost having sex, asking when Chanel told Tripp that. Tripp tells her it was when he ran in to her in the town square earlier. Allie argues that it’s a very private thing to tell a guy that she barely knows. Tripp agrees but thinks that Chanel was just really excited as she seems very in to Johnny.

Chanel asks if Johnny believes her now that she’s over Allie. Johnny calls it a start but thinks he’ll need more convincing so they continue kissing.

Philip is at the Brady Pub when he gets a call from Chloe. Philip asks how New York is. Chloe reveals that she’s not there yet because the DiMera Jet had some type of mechanical problem mid-flight. Chloe says she’s fine but she and Brady are stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Shawn finishes a call with Claire as Ben and Ciara enter. Ciara asks how Claire is. Shawn says she’s good and loving her job in South Africa. Ciara asks if Claire said anything about Theo. Shawn assures that he’s doing alright. Shawn asks what Ciara and Ben are doing here. Ciara then informs Shawn that she and Ben are leaving Salem. Shawn questions them leaving town right after Claire. Ciara clarifies that they aren’t leaving permanently. Shawn says she should’ve said vacation then instead of leaving town. Ciara apologizes. Shawn says he was just getting used to having her back. Shawn asks what it is. Ben brings up that they never had a real honeymoon, so they are going to take off for a little while.

Philip asks Chloe where they are. Chloe says they are on a private air strip near Wilkes-Barre and they are stranded until they fix the jet. Philip calls it a nightmare. Chloe says she had to tell Parker she won’t be seeing him tonight and they had to reschedule their meeting. Philip knew this trip was a bad idea and hopes that Brady is taking charge to get her out of there as soon as possible. Chloe assures that it’s not Brady’s fault. Chloe mentions staying at a motel. Philip gets upset and questions her and Brady staying in a motel. Chloe assures that it’s just for tonight. Philip says it better be and tells her to call him when she gets to New York. They say goodnight and hang up. Brady then shows up at Chloe’s door, soaking wet and declares it’s officially the business trip from Hell.

Belle enters the Brady Pub and sees Philip slam his laptop shut. Belle asks what’s wrong. Philip responds that Brady is still after Chloe and he’s not being subtle about it.

Tripp hopes he didn’t betray Chanel’s confidence by telling Allie about her and Johnny. Allie says that Chanel would’ve told her eventually and asks if she mentioned why they didn’t hook up. Tripp says it was because neither of them had a condom. Allie says thank God for that which Tripp questions. Allie points out that Chanel could get pregnant. Allie says she loves Henry but he deserves to have a father. Tripp asks if she doesn’t think Johnny would step up. Allie calls Johnny more of a love em and leave em type, which is why she doesn’t think it’s a good idea that he and Chanel are dating. Allie declares that somebody is definitely going to get their heart broken.

Johnny tells Chanel that it’s the cook’s day off so all he has is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches which she accepts. Chanel looks to the portrait of Stefano and asks who he is. Johnny informs her that it’s Stefano DiMera. Chanel comments that he looks like the guy you don’t mess with. Johnny admits a lot of people were afraid of Stefano, but he was always good to him. Johnny adds that Stefano is the one who called him Giovanni. Chanel asks which he prefers to be called. He says he’s used to either one, so she can call him whatever she wants, as long as she calls him.

Philip informs Belle that now Chloe and Brady are staying in a motel tonight. Belle doesn’t see how Brady is trying to take Chloe away from him. Philip doesn’t think the jet just happened to have mechanical problems as Brady could’ve paid off the pilot to fake an emergency landing. Belle asks what he’d get out of that since they were staying overnight anyways. Philip argues that in New York, Chloe would’ve been with Parker and her parents while now Brady has her all to himself in the middle of nowhere. Belle questions him believing that Brady would deprive Chloe of seeing her son just to get her alone. Philip thinks Brady would stoop to anything to get Chloe back as he does not trust him one bit.

Chloe gives Brady a towel and asks why he’s so wet. Brady informs her that he walked in to his motel room and found an elderly couple going at it. Brady says he tried to leave but the old man called him a pervert and dumped a bucket of ice water on him as he was walking out. Chloe laughs at the story. Chloe jokes that she’s grateful that the old man didn’t hurt him. Brady jokes that he’ll never be able to forget what he saw in there. Chloe guesses they double booked the room. Brady mentions that they don’t have any other rooms available because they are painting. Chloe asks what he’s going to do then. Brady was hoping he could stay in Chloe’s room. Chloe questions if Brady is telling her the truth.

Shawn asks Ben and Ciara where they are going for their honeymoon. Ciara mentions that Ben wanted to just go back to the cabin. Ben points out that he just fixed it all up. Ciara tells him he did a great job but they just got back from there and it’s not honeymoon material, which Ben and Shawn agree with. Ciara informs Shawn that they decided on a place important to Hope and Bo, New Orleans. Shawn recalls Hope and Bo’s first wedding being there. Ciara calls it a big turning point for them. Shawn says they had some great years after that. Ben says they will too.

Brady questions Chloe thinking he made this up. Chloe says it sounds a little convenient and that he has been open about his feelings for her. Brady jokes about the idea of paying off the pilot and the desk clerk then the old man who dumped ice water on him. Chloe points out that he still hasn’t answered her question. Brady tells her no, he did not plan any of this and he thinks she knows her too well to do something this underhanded. Brady remarks that it’s more Philip’s style. Chloe tells him not to start on Philip since he’s not a saint either. Brady admits that he doesn’t like that Chloe is with Philip, but he respects her decision. Brady adds that if she’s not comfortable with sharing a room with him, he will go sleep in the lobby. Chloe stops him and agrees to let him stay the night. Brady thanks her but Chloe notes that Philip won’t be happy about this.

Belle tells Philip that he’s being paranoid as no one is trying to take anything from him. Belle adds that his fries are getting cold while he’s ranting about Brady. Philip insists that he’s not wrong about this and that Belle could help him prove it. Philip says Belle works for DiMera, so she must know how to get in touch with the pilot. Philip asks Belle to give him a call and say she heard about the emergency landing. Belle tells him that Brady is still getting over Kristen, so he’s not spending his time trying to win Chloe back. Philip points out that Brady found time to take Chloe as his date to Eric and Nicole’s anniversary party. Belle calls that platonic but Philip points out that Brady also kissed her. Belle points out that Brady being interested in Chloe doesn’t mean she is interested in him. Belle tells Philip that Chloe chose him and asks if he trusts her. Philip tells Belle to call the pilot.

Chanel and Johnny finish their food. Chanel asks what they do now. Johnny suggests going to the pool. Chanel notes that she doesn’t have a swimsuit. Johnny says he doesn’t either but they can still go. Chanel doesn’t want everyone looking and says she was raised with class. Johnny doesn’t know if she will like his next suggestion then. Chanel says she’ll probably go for it if it’s not being naked in front of everybody. Johnny suggests they run upstairs to his room and pick up where they left off last night. Johnny adds that he came prepared this time. Chanel asks how she could say no.

Tripp tells Allie that he thinks Johnny was just as in to Chanel as she was in to him. Allie argues that if Johnny truly liked Chanel and respected her, he wouldn’t have tried to get her in bed after one date. Tripp guesses the feeling was mutual but Allie insists that Johnny is using Chanel. Allie decides that she has to go have a talk with her brother and it can’t wait. Tripp offers to go with her but Allie says this is between her and Johnny, so she’ll be back in a little while. Tripp questions if that’s really a good idea as Allie hurries out the door. Tripp then wonders what just happened.

Brady questions Chloe thinking that Philip would have a problem with them sharing the same room for just one night. Chloe argues that he knows that he would since he hates the idea of them even taking a trip together. Brady informs Chloe that Philip said he would kill him if he was inappropriate. Chloe notes that Philip would definitely think it’s inappropriate that they are sharing a motel room. Brady asks if he really has to know. Chloe questoins lying to Philip. Brady suggests just not telling him. Chloe calls that a lie of omission. Brady jokes about it then says she can tell Philip and watch him freak out, but adds that he’s not afraid of him. Chloe asks how she gets herself into these messes. Brady thinks she should ask herself why she wants to be with someone that she can’t be honest with.

Belle argues that Philip isn’t thinking this through. Philip asks what there is to think about. Belle says even if Brady paid off the pilot to make an emergency landing, the pilot wouldn’t admit it. Philip agrees and suggests offering him a lot of money. Belle says she won’t help him bribe somebody. Philip calls it a favor for an old friend. Belle notes that he’s starting to sound a little desperate. Philip says that he is as he feels like this is his last chance at getting things right with Chloe, so he can’t let her slip through his fingers again. Belle calls it a short trip and asks what could happen. Philip brings up the time Brady and Chloe went to North Dakota to find Chloe’s biological father in the summer after high school. Philip notes that things were going well for he and Chloe but Brady came in and stole her away from him. Belle argues that Brady didn’t set out to do that and was just trying to help her. Philip feels it doesn’t matter because he still lost her. Philip declares that he’s not going to let history repeat itself, so he’s going to get himself to Wilkes-Barre, Pennyslvania before it’s too late.

Shawn asks when Ciara and Ben are heading out. They say they are leaving tonight. Ben says they should get going but Shawn invites them to stick around for dessert that Belle is bringing from the Pub. They agree to stay. Shawn adds that as they wait, he can give them their wedding present which ties in to their honeymoon.

Ava goes to Allie’s apartment where Tripp answers the door and asks what she’s doing there. Ava explains that she made too much food for dinner so she thought she’d use it as an excuse to come see her grandson. Tripp informs her that Henry isn’t there as Steve and Kayla are babysitting. Ava says that’s disappointing but asks if Tripp and Allie already ate. Tripp informs her that Allie isn’t home either. Ava questions her leaving him there all alone and where she went.

Allie goes to the DiMera Mansion to confront Johnny, interrupting he and Chanel. Johnny asks what she thinks she’s doing. Allie responds that she could ask him the same question.

Philip remarks that no one better be using the Titan jet. Belle takes Philip’s phone and says she’s saving him from making an ass of himself. Philip argues that Brady could be making his move right now. Belle suggests they play this out. Belle says if Philip goes to Wilkes-Barre and barges in to Chloe’s room, where she’s most likely sleeping alone. Philip points out that she said most likely so she left room for doubt. Belle asks how that will make him look to Chloe. Philip feels like a man in love while Belle says he’d be like a total psycho. Philip says he can bring flowers and champagne and say he came to surprise her. Belle feels she would see right through that and that Philip doesn’t trust her, which could drive her right in to Brady’s arms. Belle tells Philip to stop his paranoid jealousy and chill out.

Chloe tells Brady that she can be honest with Philip about everything except Brady. Brady asks why that is. Chloe says for one thing, they used to be married. Brady reminds her that a couple months ago, she said she wanted him back. Chloe reminds him that he said he wasn’t interested so she got over him, even when he kissed her. Brady notes that he wasn’t aware she had gotten over him when he kissed her. Chloe assures that she has and she’s still over him. Chloe states that Brady is just a touchy subject with Philip. Brady says that Philip is just insanely jealous. Chloe argues that Brady pushes his buttons. Chloe feels there was no reason for her to come on this trip and that Brady only asked her to come because he knew it would upset Philip. Brady says he asked her to come because she’s a vital asset to the company. Chloe questions him having no other agenda and tells him to be honest. Brady admits he likes spending time with her and asks if that’s wrong. Chloe says it is wrong since she has a boyfriend. Chloe declares that the problem here isn’t Philip, it’s Brady.

Tripp eats with Ava and comments that he can’t believe Rafe didn’t finish it. Ava points out that Rafe didn’t eat any of it since he called at the last minute and said he was working late. Tripp tells Ava about Allie’s twin brother Johnny just showing up a few days ago and he’s already dating Allie’s friend Chanel. Tripp adds that Allie just found out tonight and she’s not too happy about it. Ava asks why. Tripp says that she said Johnny is a player so she went to tell him to back off. Tripp notes that she was pretty worked up. Ava asks what has Tripp so bothered about this. Tripp explains that Allie says she needs to stop Johnny from hurting her best friend, but this friend is pretty good at taking care of herself. Tripp wonders if Allie is so protective because she’s jealous.

Chanel questions what Allie is doing here. Allie says she’s here to talk to her brother and asks what Chanel is doing here. Johnny says they are on date so Allie can wait until tomorrow. Allie questions if they are going upstairs to finish what they started last night. Johnny asks how she knows about that. Chanel apologizes for over sharing. Johnny argues that it’s not a problem. Allie says it is because she doesn’t want Johnny charming her friend in to bed like he does every other girl he meets. Allie warns Chanel that if she sleeps with Johnny, he will just move on to the next one. Johnny argues that she doesn’t know anything about him. Allie says he used to come home and brag about it to her. Johnny says that was five years ago. Allie questions if she’s really changed. Johnny doesn’t like Allie trashing him in front of Chanel and tells her to go. Allie says she’s sorry but she’s not going anywhere.

Ava brings up Tripp telling her that Allie and Chanel kissed once. Tripp reveals that it happened twice and that Allie admitted that she felt something for Chanel. Ava questions if she found herself attracted to an old friend. Tripp says it doesn’t matter because she chose him instead. Ava asks why Allie is so bothered that her brother is friends with Chanel. Tripp doesn’t know and it bothers him. Ava tells Tripp that if an old friendship is suddenly turning in to something new, he can’t tell himself that it doesn’t matter or it’s not happening. Ava advises Tripp to talk to Allie and find out exactly where he stands, or else he might find himself as the odd man out and that’s a lonely place to be.

Johnny tells Allie to go. Allie argues that this is what Johnny always does, sleep with girls and then toss them aside. Johnny swears he would never do that to Chanel. Allie thinks he is already playing games. Johnny tells her it’s none of her business. Johnny tells Allie to go live her own life with Tripp and stay out of his. Johnny tells Allie again to go but Chanel decides she will leave and let them sort this out. Johnny tries to stop her but Chanel says it’s getting late anyways and exits. Johnny asks Allie if she’s happy now.

Shawn’s wedding gift to Ciara and Ben is a copy of the book of poetry that Bo gave Hope for her 18th birthday. Ciara tells Ben that her grandpa Shawn gave it to Bo right before he joined the marines. Shawn notes that Hope gave him a copy when he and Belle got married so he felt it was his responsibility to carry on the tradition. Ben says it means so much to him and thanks Shawn. Ciara says the same. Shawn mentions bookmarking a poem that Bo and Hope read to each other at their weddings. Ben jokes that he’s starting to feel pressure to live up to that love story. Shawn calls it an incredible one, much like Ben and Ciara’s. Ciara agrees. Shawn wonders what’s taking Belle so long and says if they have to go, they can. Ben decides they should get going to find a place to stop. Ciara thanks Shawn for the book and suggests maybe they’ll give it to a kid of theirs someday. Shawn tells them to have fun on their honeymoon as Ben kisses Ciara.

Philip tells Belle that she knows the history between he, Brady, and Chloe, so he thought she would be a little more understanding. Belle says those that ignore the past are condemned to repeat it. Philip asks what that has to do with him. Belle reminds him that she told him in high school that jealousy would ruin his life and she’s still trying to get that through his skull. Philip complains about sitting back and doing nothing. Belle brings up tracking down Chloe in North Dakota and paying off the sheriff to arrest Brady. Philip worries that they were going to stay in the same room if he hadn’t showed up. Belle argues that nothing would’ve happened since Chloe was faithful to him, but he couldn’t believe it so he screwed it all up and now he’s doing it all over again. Belle advises Philip to finish his food then go home to sleep. Belle suggests he try trusting Chloe for a change and seeing how that works. Philip decides that Belle got through to him, so he won’t do anything stupid. Belle says she has a pie to deliver to Shawn. Philip thanks her for talking him down and hugs her, calling her a good friend. Belle then exits the Pub.

Brady doesn’t know what Chloe is so afraid of. Brady says even if he wanted to come between Chloe and Philip, he wouldn’t be able to since her relationship is so solid. Chloe tells Brady that she gave them a chance to be together and opened up about her feelings for him, but he couldn’t do that to Kristen. Chloe declares that Brady made his choice and even though she thought Kristen was bad for him and that she could make him happy, she kept her distance and even offered to quit her job to give him space. Chloe cries that now that she’s chosen to be with Philip, Brady won’t do the same thing and she doesn’t think that’s fair. Brady argues that Chloe only made that choice was because Philip said that if she was with him, Kristen would be a threat. Chloe stops him and calls it a rotten, long night. Chloe doesn’t want to argue with him so she suggests just calling it a night as she storms off to the bathroom.

Tripp and Ava walk through the town square. Ava thanks him for walking her home. Tripp doesn’t think Allie is coming back anytime soon so he’s going to head home. Ava is sorry things are a mess and asks him to keep her updated. Tripp thanks her for the dinner and says Rafe doesn’t know what he’s missing. Ava hugs Tripp and says she loves him so much. Ava then walks away. Tripp turns around and runs in to Chanel. Tripp comments that tonight was crazy as he can’t believe her new guy is Allie’s brother. Chanel notes that Allie is definitely not happy about that. Tripp mentions Allie taking off after him to have it out. Chanel informs him that she was there when Allie showed up. Tripp asks how it went. Chanel tells him to talk to Allie about that and says goodnight as she walks away.

Johnny blames Allie for Chanel leaving. Allie remarks that she got out just in time. Johnny asks what that’s supposed to mean. Allie brings up Johnny hooking up with her friend Katie and then dumping her a week later. Allie says he didn’t care what that did to her, but she saw that Katie was a wreck and she was afraid she would hurt herself. Johnny insists he’s not like that anymore. Allie points out he was trying to get Chanel in to bed after their second date, so it’s a good thing that she got there before he could. Johnny asks if she’s jealous. Allie says she’s with Tripp and Chanel is her friend and that’s it. Johnny doesn’t know if he believes that and doesn’t think that Allie does either.

Brady prepares to sleep in the chair. Chloe says he’ll need another blanket but Brady insists he will be fine. Chloe brings up Brady being shot and being in a car accident recently. Brady assures that he’s comfortable and tells her to go to bed. Brady says goodnight as Chloe gets in to bed. Brady suddenly feels he’s not sleepy and asks if she minds if he reads. Chloe tells him to just get in the bed. Brady doesn’t want to make her uncomfortable. Chloe tells him to just stay on his side. Brady agrees if she is sure. Brady then gets up and gets in to bed next to Chloe, putting a blanket in between them. Brady admits the bed is much nicer and thanks her.

Philip remains at the Brady Pub on his laptop. Philip stops and declares that Brady is going to try something. Philip then calls to have his plane available and ready to go. Philip says he’s on his way to the airfield, heading to Wilkes-Barre, PA.

Belle goes home to Shawn and says sorry she was late as she ran in to Philip at the Pub. Shawn asks what’s new with him. Belle says she will tell him after he has his pie. Belle asks if she missed anything while she was gone. Shawn informs her that Ben and Ciara stopped by and just left for their honeymoon.

Gwen worries now about Jack finding out the truth. Xander assures that he won’t. Gwen doesn’t know how to thank him. Xander responds that she already did. Gwen admits she’s going to miss him because Jack would hate if he knew they were seeing each other and it wouldn’t make sense to him, so he’d be determined to get to the bottom of it and find out the truth.

Calista warns that she better come through or she will show Justin the gun with Bonnie’s fingerprints all over it and tell him all about how Bonnie killed her husband.

Johnny tells Tripp to calm down and he’s just saying that Allie and Chanel are still best friends and business partners, so it’s not like they are not going to see each other anymore. Johnny comments that he has a gay older brother and now a bisexual sister. Allie argues that she’s not and threatens to leave if he keeps acting like this. Chanel blames her mother. Johnny says he’s not judging anybody and he thought Chanel hooking up with a woman was kind of hot, until he found out it was his sister. Tripp decides they’re out of here. Johnny tries to apologize but Allie asks when he became EJ. Allie and Tripp then walk out of the bar.

Justin asks about Bonnie and Calista not being in touch. Calista brings up losing touch after Bonnie killed her brother. Justin asks what made her decide to reconnect. Calista says they both have dead husbands that were murdered so it’s a common bond. Justin says he’s sorry. Calista adds that the person who killed her husband got away with it, so hopefully that person will be brought to justice.

EJ argues that Melinda has no right to confiscate Xander’s money. Melinda asks if EJ is worried about his payment. EJ informs her that the money was paid to Xander by Sami and it’s his money. EJ adds that he didn’t know about the transaction until after and suggests she contact Sami for details, but she’s left town. EJ argues that Xander hasn’t broken any laws, so if she tries to file charges, he’ll work his magic again and it will be a waste of her time. Melinda then agrees to turn over the money, but warns them about civil suits from the families of drug overdose victims. Melinda then exits the interrogation room. EJ tells Xander that they know every dollar in that briefcase is his.

Chad tells Jack that it was good to see him, but he’s going to get out before he runs in to Gwen. Jack says he hasn’t seen her last night and was starting to worry. Gwen then comes home, so Chad says he wasn’t quick enough. Gwen greets Chad, while Jack questions where on earth she has been.

Calista asks about dinner, the dress code for the wedding, and her room in the mansion. Calista assumed Bonnie would put her up in the mansion. Bonnie notes that the house is pretty crowded already and offers her a room at the Salem Inn. Calista remarks that she wouldn’t want to be any trouble. Calista tells Justin that it was lovely meeting him and she hopes to see them at the wedding. Bonnie then walks Calista out. Calista warns Bonnie to come up with the money or she will be staying single.

Johnny and Chanel go back to the DiMera Mansion. Johnny says they didn’t get to have dinner, so he can ask the cook to make some, but Chanel says she’s not that hungry. Johnny notes her not saying much and asks if that has to do with the scene Allie made. Chanel can’t believe Allie and Johnny are brother and sister. Johnny says the last couple of days have been fun, but her having a thing for Allie makes things complicated. Chanel asks if it does for him or for her.

Tripp brings Allie home and notes that she was pretty quiet on the way over, so he asks if she’s upset that Chanel is seeing her brother. Allie calls it weird and admits she really hopes it doesn’t last.

Gwen claims to Jack that she went to bed early and then went to an early meeting with an employment counselor and spent the rest of the day walking. Jack notes that she didn’t say anything about an employment counselor. Gwen says she can’t expect him to keep her forever. Chad asks what the counselor said. Gwen claims they said she would need a reference from her last job but she knows that would be a problem, which Chad confirms. Gwen decides to go make some tea and exits the room. Chad tells Jack that he’s sorry but he can’t tell an employer that Gwen was a good nanny with how things ended. Jack gets it and promises to talk to Jennifer in hopes that she can get through to Abigail. Jack assures Chad that Abigail loves him and asks him not to give up on their marriage. Chad responds that he doesn’t intend to.

EJ and Xander walk back through the town square. EJ says it was a pleasure doing business with him and he’ll take the money now. Xander says not until EJ gets him his old job back at Basic Black. EJ says that Brady is on a business trip to New York while Nicole has been out sick all week, so when they are back in the office, he will follow up. Xander argues that EJ is the top man at DiMera Enterprises, so he could snap his fingers and make this happen. EJ says he’s done everything he said so far. EJ argues that the money belongs to him. Xander argues that Sami paid him willingly and that he did EJ a favor, since exposing Nicole got the ball rolling or else Sami could still be cheating on him, so he should be thanking him. EJ tells Xander to shut up and give him the briefcase now.

Bonnie heads back inside where Justin comments that Calista is quite the character. Justin is surprised Bonnie never mentioned her before. Bonnie says she was out of sight, out of mind, and then appeared out of the blue, so she felt she had to invite her to the wedding. Justin relates to similar experience with family members being on the spot. Bonnie thanks him for understanding. Bonnie then claims to Justin that the caterer wants the full payment before the wedding, so she thought he could just write a blank check and she would fill in the amount later. Justin tells her there’s no need, as it’s all taken care of. Justin tells her not to worry as all she has to do is show up looking beautiful and then they can start their new lives together. Bonnie cries that she wants that life so much. Justin adds that it’s great that Calista is there to have someone from Bonnie’s side of the family since her kids can’t make it.

Johnny doesn’t care if Chanel kissed Allie as long as she is sure that she’s over her. Chanel assures that she is. Johnny hopes so because he doesn’t want to be in a rivalry with his sister over her. Chanel states that Allie is with Tripp now and Allie’s happy, while she is too. Johnny says he is happy too then as they kiss.

Tripp asks Allie what bothers her about Johnny and Chanel dating. Allie talks about Johnny being her best friend growing up and now she feels she doesn’t even know him. Allie says Johnny was a total jerk tonight and worries about him being a jerk to Chanel. Tripp encourages that Chanel can take care of herself. Allie hopes they break it off before it gets serious. Tripp then reveals that Chanel told him that she and Johnny almost slept together last night.

Jack finishes a call. Gwen comes in and asks what’s wrong. Jack informs her that he just got some news that upset him. Jack reveals that Xander hired EJ to represent him and EJ found a way to get his case thrown out, so Xander is going to walk and get away with what he did to Gwen. Gwen tells Jack that it’s okay. Jack warns that Xander better stay away from Gwen.

Xander tells EJ that he can challenge him to a duel or he can make good on the rest of their agreement while he holds onto the money. Xander adds that when he gets his job back at Basic Black, he’ll hand over the million dollars. EJ warns him about trying anything. Xander gives EJ his room number at the Salem Inn and they walk their separate ways. Calista comes around the corner in the town square and gets a call from Bonnie. Calista asks if she got the money. Bonnie admits she tried to con Justin in to writing a blank check but her heart wasn’t in it and she failed which upsets Calista. Bonnie suggests that maybe after the wedding, Justin will open her up a bank account. Calista complains that after Bonnie marries Justin, she’ll never see her money. Calista informs Bonnie that she has a better idea, as she knows exactly where she can get a million dollars.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

At the penthouse, Amanda smiled as Devon told her about helping deliver a perfect baby boy. He noted that he’d already told her this twice. She planned to keep asking him to tell her the story though, because she thought he was a hero. She alluded to him being a father, but he told her not to say that. He said Abby was the mother, and Chance was the only father. Amanda said the baby was Abby and Chance’s, but Devon had a biological connection, and it was clear that he felt something for the baby. Devon admitted he did feel an amazing connection that he couldn’t put into words. Amanda thought Devon was thinking about the baby right now. He said he didn’t stop thinking of him. He’d never felt this way before. He was just happy the nightmare was over, that Mariah was safe and Abby had her child. Amanda said it was thanks to Devon. He didn’t think he deserved all the credit. She said he could be humble, but she was going to be proud of him. She had to get going. He planned to go to the hospital and check on everyone, and she said to kiss the baby for her.

Mariah had a nightmare in the hospital, while Abby was at her side. Mariah woke up screaming Bowie, and she demanded to know where he was. Abby assured Mariah that the baby was safe in the nursery, and she said Mariah could go see him if she wanted. Mariah talked about her ordeal in solitary confinement. She’d been all alone, except for Bowie. Abby reacted when she heard the name Bowie. Mariah didn’t understand why this happened. Abby blamed herself for not sensing something was wrong with Ben. She said she was worried about Mariah and she was lost without Chance, then Ben came along saying all the right things. Abby said Ben’s life had hit a low point, and he thought this was a way to get things back on track and make Abby feel grateful to him. Mariah was adamant that Stitch was the only one to blame – he’d hurt her, Abby, Tessa, Devon, Sharon and everyone who loved the baby.

Abby let the nurses know that Mariah was awake. She added that everyone, including Nina and Jill, knew the baby was born, and they were all excited to see him and Mariah. Mariah wanted to see everyone too, after being alone for so long, but maybe not all at once. Mariah was hungry, and Abby said that the nurses were bringing a meal. Mariah was happy to have something new to eat after all those protein bars. Abby told Mariah how Ben’s story about protein bars made Devon suspicious, which was the key to unraveling the story and Mariah’s rescue. Mariah asked if everyone was worried when she first disappeared. Abby explained that Ben used Mariah’s phone to craft a cover story about a business trip and needing time alone. Mariah protested that she’d never leave town without saying goodbye to Tessa. Abby knew that, but they were all trying to be considerate of Mariah’s feelings. Abby added that Tessa was the first one who sensed something was off.

Mariah would never forget Abby bursting through the door to rescue her. She thought she’d have to deliver Bowie alone. “I’m sorry, I just, um, I have to ask. Bowie?,” Abby said. Mariah said she needed something to call the baby – it was just the two of them, and they had many deep conversations, and after a while, Little Man and Kiddo didn’t fit. She swore she wasn’t trying to name him. Abby understood that, and she said she didn’t think Mariah tried to name him. Mariah said she talked to the baby about being strong and brave and the one most important truth – that his mom already loved him so much.

Abby and Mariah went to see the baby, and when they got back Sharon and Rey were waiting from them. Ben went to Iowa, took Max from the facility without checking him out, then he stole one of the doctor’s ID’s and fled to parts unknown. The facility didn’t notice Max was missing until morning, so there was no telling how much of a head start Ben had. Mariah was scared Stitch would come back to Genoa City. Rey said there was an APB out for him, and his description had been sent to clinics and hospitals throughout the mid west. If they showed up anywhere for treatment, Ben would be arrested. Mariah was worried Ben would get away with it, and Rey assured her that the GCPD wasn’t giving up. Rey was going to keep investigating. Abby felt bad that Ben had gone down this path, and she said things were only going to get worse for him and Max. Mariah asked why Abby cared what happened to Stitch. Abby was angry, but she was also a little sad. Mariah wasn’t sad at all. She wanted Ben behind bars where he belonged.

When Mariah was alone, Tessa came by. Mariah confided about the nightmares, and Tessa comforted and reassured her. Abby walked in with the form for the birth certificate. She stayed up all night, and she came up with a name. Dominic Phillip Newman Abbott Chancellor. Dominic’s name had a “D” for Devon and an “M” for Mariah. Phillip, of course, for his father, Phillip Chancellor IV. An exhausted Abby decided to finish the rest of the form at home, and she left. Tessa decided to ask the nurse if she could take Mariah outside so she could see the sky after being inside for so long. Mariah said Tessa always knew what she needed. Mariah added that Tessa and Bowie kept her sane in there. Tessa questioned “Bowie.” Mariah said it was the name she called the baby, but Abby just gave him like seven names. They chuckled and agreed that the name was so Abby. Mariah turned somber and said she’d be the only one who knew the baby as Bowie. Tessa said that Mariah could tell the baby that some day. Mariah burst into tears. She’d made the baby so many promises, and he was her reason for living. She admitted she didn’t know how to let go. Tessa hugged Mariah. Tessa thought it was natural for Mariah to be feeling some residual anxiety, but she and Dominic were safe, and he’d have a great life because of Mariah. She said Abby and Chance would make sure of that. Tessa added that Mariah would be part of his life. Mariah reiterated that Tessa always knew what she needed. Mariah smiled, but it faded when Tessa looked away.

Abby invited Devon over to her place, and she told him the baby’s name and the significance of it. He liked the name Dominic, in general, and he felt honored by the tribute. He said Dominic would be home where he belonged soon, and Abby would start this journey that would last the rest of her life. They hugged.

Victor and Nick were at Society digesting the news that Stitch was the kidnapper. They felt for Mariah and Abby. Victor was glad that Abby could put this behind her and raise her boy. Victor stepped away to take a call. Billy arrived, and he and Nick congratulated each other on their new Newman-Abbott nephew. Billy was just glad Mariah and the baby were okay. “Stitch better hope I never get my hands on him,” Nick said. Billy thought it was good Nick was protective of Abby, but right now, it was his other sister who needed help. Nick thought Billy should stay out of Ashland and Victoria’s personal life. Billy implied he had a good reason to get involved. He explained that Ashland’s mentor, an older woman, suddenly died, and Ashland bought her TV stations. Ashland didn’t come from money, and he was barely twenty years old at the time, but he somehow had the money to buy two major entities. Billy noticed that Nick didn’t seem surprised, and he asked if Nick and Victor ran a background check on Ashland already. Nick said he needed good reason to get involved in Victoria’s personal life, and he said to let him know if one was found. “Now get out of my dad’s chair,” Nick said, so Billy left.

Victor returned to the table. His team was still trying to find out how Ashland was able to buy the TV stations. Nick repeated what Nikki said – even if something sketchy happened in the past, that didn’t necessarily say anything about what Ashland was like now. Victor still wanted to investigate. Victoria might be angry, but it’d be worth it if they found something serious. Nick said that Victoria might not ever have to know Victor did any digging. There was someone else on the exact same trail about the TV stations. Victor realized it was Billy. Victor asked if Nick told Billy that the Newmans were investigating. While Nick didn’t share that, Billy had jumped to that conclusion. Victor was glad Nick didn’t say anything. He asked Nick to keep his distance from Billy and keep anything uncovered in this investigation in the family. Nick said of course. Victor didn’t want an outsider picking up information and using it against them. Nick didn’t think Billy was doing this for leverage. Victor didn’t care about Billy’s motives. He stated that they’d circle the wagons and protect themselves – the Newman creed. Nick nodded.

Victoria went to ChancComm, and Lily said Billy wasn’t there. Victoria wanted to talk to Lily. She said some of Ashland’s associates were getting calls from reporters with probing questions about the beginning of Ashland’s career. Victoria didn’t think it was hard to figure out where those reporters worked. Lily didn’t think it should be surprising that there were news outlets like ChancComm that were interested in Ashland’s history. Victoria understood Ashland was a public figure, even if there was no story in how his career started. Victoria was surprised that a strong independent woman like Lily was standing by and watching Billy use the company for his own agenda. Lily said she and Billy ran the company as a partnership, just like they did their personal lives. She said she didn’t let him impose his personal agenda on business agendas, but if there was news, they went after it. Victoria didn’t think there was a story here. She understood writing stories on his divorce, and his illness, now that he’d made it public, but now he had to deal with every disgruntled business associate from the last twenty years. She asked why Lily would drag a sick and dying man through the rug. Victoria thought she understood Billy’s motive. She was sure he’d said it was about the kids, but that wasn’t true, in her opinion. “Clearly it’s about me, and we both know that,” Victoria said. Lily didn’t think Victoria’s argument had merit. She wondered if Victoria was making this personal to try and get under Lily’s skin. Victoria felt that if Lily was rationalizing this, it meant Lily had changed, and not necessarily for the better. Elena showed up for her meeting, so Victoria left.

Lily said Nate gave up his job at AskMDNow after his promotion. Elena didn’t know that, but she realized there was a lot on his plate. Lily said Nate suggested Elena as a replacement. Lily thought that Elena’s natural empathy and knowledge made her a great fit. Elena needed a minute to think about it, and Lily understood. After Elena left, Billy showed up. Lily filled Billy in about Elena. Afterward, she stated that his ex came by and called Lily a sellout who let him do whatever he wanted. Billy was sorry. He wished he’d been there to deflect Victoria’s anger. Lily said it was okay. She’d presented a united front and covered her own reservations about Billy investigating Ashland. She still had her doubts about why he was doing this. He started to explain himself again. She interjected that she knew he was concerned about his kids, but she was worried that in his quest to be right about Locke, he might irreparably harm the relationship with the mother of his children.

Ashland was at Crimson Lights. He became unsteady on his feet, and Nate rushed to his aid. Ashland said he was okay, but concerned, Nate wanted to help Ashland get home. Ashland nodded. Once they got there, Ashland said that things weren’t as bad as they looked. Nate said he could tell Ashland was in rough shape earlier. Ashland appreciated Nate’s discretion on this. Nate said of course – Victoria was a friend, and he was always happy to help. He suggested that Ashland might want to speak with another doctor about this, and he offered him a referral. Nate gave Ashland some vitamin supplements for energy that helped people going through chemo.

Ashland assumed the new chief of surgery had more important things to do than tuck him in for a post-chemo nap. Nate said he was off duty, and he’d wanted to get Ashland out of the coffeehouse. He knew Ashland liked to project strength, and he wouldn’t want to be seen in public like that. Ashland was thankful. Nate said that chemo didn’t care about how tough you were, because chemo could be tougher. Ashland was beginning to realize that. Ashland said that when you project invincibility, people begin to see you that way. It was funny how it all faded so fast. Nate said he injured his hand last year, and he still couldn’t operate. His world was wrapped up in being a surgeon, and suddenly he couldn’t perform surgery. He learned to be honest with himself about his limitations and how to ask for help when it was needed. It wasn’t a sign of weakness. Ashland thought Nate sounded like Victoria. Nate said there was nothing to be gained by pretending to have an easy time with chemo, and there was no shame in admitting it sucked. Ashland stated that he was being asked to unlearn decades of behavior. That was a big change. Nate felt that Ashland had to recognize that his life had changed. He said that the doctors might be able to make things a little better if Ashland was honest with them about the side effects. The same for Victoria. Nate understood the instinct to hide things, but he thought Ashland should let Victoria help him. “You were right, Doctor. This sucks,” Ashland said.

Victoria came home after Nate left. She brought Ashland a smoothie. He pretended that he was doing well after his chemo session, and when she assumed that he made it home on his own, he didn’t correct her. As she headed toward the kitchen, he called her back and admitted he was lying. He explained that the treatment was brutal, and he’d been afraid he was going to collapse. She was sorry, and she wished she’d gone to his appointment with him. He said Dr. Hastings brought him home. He admitted that he might not be able to handle this.

Nate and Elena met at Crimson Lights. He apologized for being late, explaining that he was held up a bit. She revealed that she knew he left AskMDNow and recommended her for the job. Smiling, she said she couldn’t believe he didn’t tell her. He said he didn’t want to ruin the surprise of her getting called in and offered a job on the spot. She hadn’t accepted the job yet. She wasn’t sure she was right for it. He said she’d be a natural, and even better at it than he was. He suggested they role play as doctor and patient. He said he had a pain in his heart that disappeared when he saw her. She diagnosed him as being a charmer.

Ashland: Uh, doc, I would appreciate your discretion on this.

Nate: Of course. Victoria is a friend of mine. I’m always happy to help out. Look, I don’t want to press you too hard, and maybe you’d prefer to speak to someone else about this. I’m cool with that. I can even give you a referral, if you like, but in the meantime, these vitamin supplements, they’re good for energy. I’ve seen help out other patients deal with fatigue while undergoing chemo. Now, it’s just two a day — one in the morning and one at night. I’ll leave them right there for you.

Ashland: Thank you, sir. That’s very kind, but I know you’re the new big-shot at the hospital. You’re chief of surgery, right?

Nate: That’s right.

Ashland: Well, so I would imagine you have more important things to do than tucking me in for a post-chemo nap.

Nate: Uh, not right now. I’m off duty. And I wanted to get you out of there. I know a man of your stature likes to project strength, and I’m sure you didn’t want anyone seeing you struggle like that.

Ashland: That’s very thoughtful of you. Thank you.

Nate: But you need to remember that chemotherapy doesn’t care about appearances or how tough you are because chemo can be tougher.

Ashland: Dr. Hastings, I’m beginning to realize that.


Nate: I, uh, injured my hand last year. Still can’t operate. My whole world was wrapped around me being a surgeon, and suddenly I can’t perform surgery.

Ashland: And you were able to get past it?

Nate: Took a while, but i learned I had to be honest with myself about my limitations. I had to learn how to ask for help when it was needed. It’s not a sign of weakness.

Ashland: You sound like Victoria.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] I’m no oncologist, but I’ve seen enough cases that each round of chemo you go through can be different. There’s nothing to be gained by pretending you’re dealing with it better than you are and there’s no shame in admitting that this sucks.

Ashland: You know, you’re asking me to unlearn decades of behavior. That’s a big change.

Nate: Well, your life has changed. You need to recognize that and be honest with yourself about it. Being stoic may only prolong your agony. And your doctors might be able to make it a little better if you’re open with them.

Ashland: Noted.

Nate: Same goes for Victoria. I personally understand the instinct to want to hide the worst of your situation from her, but don’t. She’s an ally. Let her help you.

Ashland: You were right, doctor. This sucks.

[ Sighs ] Thank you for the ride. I’m so in the mood for a caprese salad. And bailey can get some sunshine and fresh air while I have some lunch. How long, um, is your meeting gonna be? Maybe we could catch a ride with you? Of course. We’ll have to see. My meeting’s right here. Enjoy your salad.

[ Groans ] Brook lynn! Oh, my god! Are you here for lunch? Let’s sit together. Oh, hi, cutie. It’s so good to see you.

[ Exhales deeply ] Valentin. My man. Pull up a chaise. Soak up some vitamin D. And explain to me why I should vote to keep you the ceo of elq.

[ Indistinct conversations ] King me! Woman, you are a shark! I should have known better than to play with you. This is true. But I’m glad you threw caution to the wind. Ahh. I’ve missed you. So have I. Well, this is definitely an improvement over pentonville. I just wish you were out of the system altogether. It’s a nicer prison, but it’s still a prison. So tell me… how is your new life on the outside? Hey. Hi. Hey. Who’s winning? Your mom.

[ Chuckles ] Everything okay? Yeah, that depends. Um… I got a call from drew. How’d the apartment hunting go? Terrible. We went to seven apartments, and none of them were acceptable. It’s good you have deception. I don’t think this real-estate gig’s gonna pay off for you. Well, considering I’m doing this as a big, fat favor, I’m not really too worried about it. Jordan: I’m relieved to hear mayor collins and her brother arrived safely. Do you have any more intel on who’s been carrying out renault’s orders? Okay, well, send me the prison phone logs. I want to know who cyrus has been talking to. Thanks for meeting me.

[ Soft music plays ]

[ Sighs ] Carly: It’s beautiful. Hey, carly.

[ Gasps ] Yeah. Oh. Were you daydreaming? We’re closed!

[ Door closes ] Mike, mike, mike. Is nina here? No. Huh. She’s not at her place, either. You wouldn’t happen to know what she’s up to you, would you? Aunt liesl. Were you able to make arrangements? It’s all set. I need you to direct peter to the town of soufriere on st. Lucia. It’s large enough that tourists won’t be noticed… but too small for any significant police force. Okay. And once peter gets there? The scourge that is peter august will be eradicated once and for all. I don’t expect nina to tell me where she is every minute of the day. Why — why would she tell you? Oh. So sorry if my question upset you. No, y-you don’t seem sorry about anything. Least of all, me. You’re a very perceptive man, mike. Perhaps it was one of your gifts. You want more of my perception? You had a strong reaction when you first got here… like you were surprised to see me. Your point being? Stop now! You know who I am? Yes. As a matter of fact, I do.

Well, your message sounded urgent. What do we need to talk about? Your wedding. I understand you’re inviting more than just friends and family… that you also have several business associates on your guest list. That’s right. Do you expect trouble? Why? Have you — have you heard something? Cyrus. He may be behind bars, but he’s not sitting there quietly. Listen to me. Please be careful. Peter is gonna be on his guard.

[ Chuckles ] You are kind to worry, niece. But peter is no match for me. His exit is long overdue. No one will miss him. And the world will be better without him in it. If you know who I was before I lost my memory, you better start talking. You know, when I said I “knew” you, mike, what I meant was that I know the type of guys that nina is drawn to. She simply can’t resist. And before I could ask any questions, I heard all this commotion, like a struggle, and then the line went dead. And you believe that it was drew? I don’t know what to think, mom. I — [ Stammers ] I’ve been processing the whole thing, and — yeah, I g– I guess. I believe it was drew. I just have so many unanswered questions about the plane crash. It just — what are you gonna do? I mean, what are you gonna do to answer those questions? Dante’s helping me investigate. Anna actually agreed to let us look at the wsb file on the plane crash. It sounds like you’ve got a lot of support behind you. Ugh. Okay. I don’t want you to think that I have dropped the ball on the hayden barnes investigation. I’m still gonna help you find out who shot her. Sam, finding drew, getting answers once or for all has to be your focus. I wanted to congratulate you, actually, about your — your engagement to jason. It’s — he’s a good man. You’re very fortunate. I am. You kind of remind me of robert and me. Like, you’ve been to hell and back more times than you care to remember. You know, we didn’t make it, but I — I — I really think that you guys are gonna succeed. I just wanted to wish you every happiness. Thank you. Excuse me. Mrs. Corinthos. May I have a word? Of course. Excuse me, anna. Yeah. Hey. Sorry to keep you. Oh, no. Here you go. This is what you need. Thank you. So, that’s all the intel the wsb has on drew’s plane crash. I’m hoping maybe there’s something in there that sam could find or could shed some light, maybe give you an avenue to pursue. Yeah. Did you take a look? No. I thought I’d leave it to you. Ah. Yeah, so let me know. I’m available to help. Appreciate it. Any, uh, theories? Other than the obvious. Peter’s responsible. Either he or someone that works for him has drew. If helena weren’t dead, I would say this were right up her alley. Yeah, I’d say you should send someone to cassadine island. Oh, it’s done. Oh, really? -Yeah. -I was — I was just kidding.

[ Chuckles ] The bureau, they keep that place on their radar. Because if there’s one thing I’ve learned… is the past doesn’t stay in the past. Truer words were never spoken. And where were the harbor views? You know, that place I rented before on talmadge was a big loft space. I like the openness. I want something like that but in a trendy area with coffee bars and boutiques. Any of the places lucy showed us today would have been great for you, mom. Yeah. You know, why don’t you reconsider? That one that had those great, big nice windows? I really think the natural light would make you look better. Sounds great for plants. I don’t do plants. Or cats. Or canasta. Next, you’re gonna try and stash me in an old folks’ home. I like the place. It’s better than mine. Gladys: Okay. That’s men for you. Give them a couch, a wide-screen tv, they could live in a cave. Okay, ms. Corbin, I-I did show you properties that were commensurate with your price points. I was instructed to “work within” a very tiny, modest budget. Okay. That’s not my fault. I was shot! In the shoulder. Three months ago. What was that? You’ve already returned to work. In the fashion industry. That’s another thing. I need a place that’s suitable for my new career. Being brook lynn’s assistant at deception, while very important, is still an entry-level position. Which reminds me. When can I expect my first raise? I’m not actually here to pitch myself. I have a bit of a reputation. But you’re not actually a voting shareholder just yet, so we might be getting ahead of ourselves. Why don’t you just tell valentin we ran into each other and decided to have lunch together? That makes total sense. You don’t get it. Valentin is over there trying to pull austin into his camp so he can retain control of elq. We filed a motion. New evidence. Edward left a letter that he was going to change his will. So it’s just a question of time before austin gets his… shares of elq. With all due respect, filing a motion is just the beginning of a very lengthy and contentious process, isn’t it? Well, with equal respect, the evidence is strong. I think the lawsuit’s just a formality. I hope you’re right, because assuming you become a voting shareholder, I am gonna want your support.

Okay, so now that austin found out edward intended to add his father to the will, what’s next? Well, if the judge rules in austin’s favor, then he might be the deciding vote of who gets control of elq, so it will be up to us to try to convince him that keeping the family business in the family is better. Good luck with that. Yeah. My sentiments exactly. I’m so sorry, brook lynn. After everything you did to put your father in charge of the company, and now you’re back at square one. Not entirely. I still get to keep this baby safe. There’s no bigger payoff than that. Elq is thriving on my watch. I’m a very effective ceo. I’ve guarded the bottom line, protected cash flow. I’ve increased profits. And the price of the shares that you are about to receive have actually increased and are very strong, so I would say that replacing me as ceo at this time would be pretty stupid. I mean, anybody can say that they’re a well-meaning, honest, straightforward guy. Doesn’t mean that you are. I think this guy thinks I’m some kind of a hayseed. Hm. Valentin… if you think I’m the guy that just fell off the turnip truck, I’m not. Shawn, no. I said I was gonna help you. I’m going to. Family first, always. If scout’s father is alive, we should probably know about that. I’ll get justice — for me and hayden. Haven’t given up. And I’m not going anywhere. Except to stretch my legs. I’ll let you two talk. But I am coming back for a rematch.

[ Singsong voice ] I’ll be here. He’s great. Yes. He certainly is. Well, you must have a lot of questions. No. I know it was drew’s voice. Anna. A word? Anna: Okay. I’ll be right back. Yeah. Good luck. Thanks. What do you want, mr. Novak? To apologize in person for my nephew joey’s inappropriate behavior. If your nephew approaches my daughter again, he’s gonna find out firsthand why jason has the reputation that he has. Not to worry. I’m making arrangements to send joey out of the country, indefinitely. I hope so. Have no fear. Consider it an early wedding present. You finally set a date. It appears my invitation got lost in the mail. Or is it just too awkward to have sonny’s family at your wedding to jason? Excuse me. Just for a tiny moment. Absolutely. My mother does not know when to quit, does she? Now she’s harassing carly. Carly can handle your mom. Oh, no question. Speaking of carly… maxie mentioned that the wedding is set for september 17th. You haven’t said if you’re going. Is it because you don’t want me to go with you? And there’s no word on that schleim henrik? No. No. I mean, if he’s out there, he’s doing a very good job of staying undercover. What are the chances of him being mercifully dead? It’s a possibility. Isn’t it? But I’ll tell you this much. I’m not giving up until I find him. Dead or alive. When nina sees someone lost or in pain… she feels compelled to help. And I pegged you as her latest charity case from the moment I walked in the door! Say it again! Say it again! Mike! Mike! Stop! Stop! What is going on here?! It’s a difference of opinion, nina. That’s it. Wha– it doesn’t — it doesn’t matter. Okay? Because peter is leaving today. Really? Yes. I was able to get in touch with my contact. The fiction editor for burnside publishing. He agreed to meet you, peter. So if you wait for me outside, I will fill you in. I can’t wait to hear all about it. Best of luck…mike. What? He’s bad news! Peter’s bad news! The bat. I don’t even understand why you even talk to him. Okay, okay. I agree with you, and I am listening to you. But after today, mike… you won’t see peter again. That’s a promise.

-Why did you say to provoke him? -Who cares? Do you really have a lead on my daughter’s whereabouts, or was that little performance all for sonny’s benefit? Yes. I have a lead. Anna and valentin think that your baby is in st. Lucia. And valentin just offered up this information? He wasn’t suspicious at all? Isn’t that why you blackmailed me in the first place? Because you wanted me to exploit valentin’s feelings for me? Don’t act like you care about valentin. Clearly, you’ve moved on.

[ Groans ] I — I told valentin that I was worried about maxie and that I needed to know if they were any closer to finding louise, and that is when he told me about this new lead. Why st. Lucia? If you get new information on that schmutsack, please keep me appraised. I’m going away to a medical conference, and I’m worried about maxie and little james. Didn’t you lose your license? Thank you. I had completely forgotten. I still like to keep up. Anyway, the conference is in st. Lucia. Scott and I are taking advantage of the excuse for a romantic getaway. Once he finishes his meeting at the pool, we’ll be on our way. W-with scott? Oh. Anyway, um… yeah, don’t worry about maxie. I’ll keep my eye out on her. And just, uh, e-enjoy. Oh. I shall.

[ Laughs ] Valentin: So when it comes to elq, I just want to make the company money. Every decision I make as ceo is to further that goal. So the quartermaines can fight and bicker and argue. It’s not gonna make the company suffer at all. That’s a good point. Hello, gentlemen. Could you just excuse us for a moment? I need to speak with my pal, pronto. Oh, for heaven’s sakes, lucy. We’re talking business. Now get lost. Pronto! No worries. Let’s just take a break. Yeah, I could make some phone calls. Thank you. Thank you so much. You…nincompoop! Now… that’s a little harsh. No. No. It’s not a little harsh. I have harsher words for you, and I’ve kept my mouth sealed this whole time. I have been a very good girl, and I haven’t said one single word about your dangerous liaison — your liaison dangereuse with that…obrech! But the fact is, you jetting off to some island with her, that is too far. First of all, it’s “obrecht.” With a “T.” Okay? Unh! You know what? You need to just get a grip. Get a grip right now! Because that woman is icky. And do you know how many times she’s almost ruined the nurses’ ball for me? She is only out for herself. And if you don’t snap out of it, then — then liesl obrech — brech, brech-brech-brech — is gonna be the death of you. Austin: Hey! Maxie. I’ve run into you two days in a row. I think the universe is trying to tell us something. That the metro court has a great pool lunch menu? Brook lynn: We would have invited you over, but, um, you seemed pretty busy over there. Oh, I’m not too busy to stop by and say hi to a friend. Because we’re friends, right, maxie? I’ve recently been made aware that cyrus is up to his old tricks, intent on revenge. Any threats directed at carly or her family? Not so far. Steps have been taken to secure the parties involved. We believe that the threats have been neutralized for the moment. I appreciate the heads-up. I’d appreciate some cooperation. Do you know who’s doing cyrus’ dirty work for him? Any names you might be able to pass along? Gladys, your constant jabs about wanting me to feel guilty about marrying jason, it won’t work. If you knew anything about sonny, you would know that he would be all for this. Sonny would want me to move on and be happy. And sonny trusted jason more than anybody in the whole world. Now, I get that you can’t grasp that concept, and that’s why you’re not invited to my wedding. But we’re family. We’re not family, okay? And you better change your attitude if you hope to be a part of brando and his child’s life. I wasn’t planning to go to carly and jason’s wedding. Why not? I made a promise to keep my distance, and I meant it. You and the baby are my first priority.

[ Sighs ] I appreciate that. But, brando, I would never ask you to give up your family. Bingo. If you continue following up on this, you have to promise me that you’re gonna be careful. I mean, I remember drew to be a very capable and determined guy, but if somebody is holding him up somewhere, you finding him could be dangerous. I promise I’ll be careful.

[ Cellphone rings ] Ohh. Excuse me for a second. Dante. Hey. Are you at the metro court? Hey. Yeah. Are you — are you still coming here? Yeah. I’ll be there. I’m just — I’m with my mom right now. Were you able to get the file? I did, and, uh, you should get down here. There’s something you got to see. Okay. I’ll be right there.

hey. Uh, wow. That was fast. Well, you said there was something I needed to see? Yeah, there’s — hey, sam. Hi. Yeah. You should sit, too. You both should hear this. -Okay. You found something? -Hear what? Well, we knew that drew found andre maddox in ethiopia and sent andre home while he continued on to afghanistan alone, but what we didn’t know is that drew chartered a flight in addis ababa. We — we — we know that drew wasn’t flying commercial. I don’t see the significance right now. A charter flight could have multiple passengers. Drew wasn’t alone. There was another passenger on that flight. Ooh-hoo. Your move. Oh. Right.

[ Clears throat ] You know what? Let’s stop. Neither one of us is paying attention anyway. Because of sam? Because of sam, because of you. You were very gallant. I know you are disappointed. And you let her walk away with a clear conscience. You’re good guy. You know that? Well, the one thing I learned in prison was patience. But I didn’t tell you the other part of the story. Mm-hmm. What part? Hayden’s mother, naomi, she comes to town with some story about how hayden abandoned violet. And next thing we know, she was murdered. Wha– hayden’s mother was killed? It would seem someone wanted to keep her from talking about hayden. Hmm. Do you think whoever wanted hayden shot six years ago is still after her? I don’t know, alexis. If I keep at this, maybe I’ll uncover more than I bargained for. “If”? Jordan thinks I should let it go. Focus on my present and future. I don’t know. Maybe she’s right. Jordan’s a very smart woman. Of course she’s right. Too bad you won’t listen to her. This is the first time I’m hearing about threats from cyrus. Are you sure your sources are good? They’re good. But cyrus’ organization has been dismantled. Is it possible that cyrus still has an ally on the outside? Can you be 100% certain that no one in the five families would work with him? There’s a difference being part of a family and being part of the mob. I don’t know. With sonny, there was barely daylight between the two. And I don’t think carly and jason are gonna be much different. Look at michael. Look at dante. Okay. I-I think, being a cop, dante counts as a special case. Okay, but you get what I’m saying. Right? Yes, I want us to have our own life with our child unconnected to the mob. But sonny was your cousin. His kids are your family. And by extension, so are carly and jason. I would never ask you to completely cut ties with them. You’re amazing. Lucy! I thought you’d left. Not that anyone could blame you. Well, I decided to make a visit to the pool.

[ Sighs ] Well, I don’t blame you, either. It sounds like apartment hunting with gladys was taxing. Mm. Look. I-I pride myself on being very professional. It’s just — all I can give is my hard-won words of wisdom. I cannot help it if certain people don’t listen to me. Maxie has more friends than she knows what to do with. Right, maxie? Not sure she needs another one. -Is that true? -It is. Maxie, you think that’s true?

[ Sighs ] Look, it’s not your fault that every time I see you, I think of louise. I’m always gonna be grateful you were there that night to help bring her into the world. But that was the same night I lost her. I’m sorry. No, don’t be sorry. Not at all. I mean, that’s a real trauma. I should have considered that. Forgive me. I won’t intrude. Oh, my god. He is so into you! Can nina and I take you out to dinner tonight? Oh! That’s good news. No, she’s, uh — she’s outside with that peter guy. Yeah. Don’t like that guy at all. But, uh, he’s — he’s leaving. He’s leaving today. So that’s good. Matter of fact, if she doesn’t come in here real soon… I’m gonna go out there myself and send him packin’. Using her sources at wsb, anna tracked a woman with an infant who traveled from albany, new york, aken. This woman, she rented a cottage on the outskirts of this town called soufriere, st. Lucia. U happen to getthe me of this woman? Peter, what possible reason could I have to ask valentin the name of the woman? Well, how sure is valentin that this “lead” is legitimate? Anna and valentin are going to st. Lucia tomorrow. Tomorrow. That means I can still get there before them.

Bon voyage. -[ Gasps ] -If you’re lying to me, nina… I swear you won’t be the only one who suffers.

[ Gasps ] Because I — I know that you’re capable of anything, peter. I wouldn’t dare double-cross you.

-sonny’s death created unrest. -Yeah. I’m glad to see you and carly acting to shore up your interests. Well, carly and I are getting married. That’s — that’s all. There are many reasons two people join their lives. A wedding is a statement to the world of a couple’s strength and commitment. Believe me when I say… I’m wishing you and carly the best in your future together. Thank you. And, really, thanks again for the update.

[ Jason sighs ] I know you, and I know you’re not walking away from this. Yeah. You’re right. I can’t let it go, especially after hayden’s mother was killed. Yeah, I know what it’s like to dig into something myself. So here’s what I’m thinking. Maybe we could work together on this. I mean, I know I’m not a P.I. Hell, I’m not even free. But we made a good team when we were digging up information to expose judge carson, so I was thinking maybe we could do it again. What do you say? All right. Can I ask you something? What’s with this report? It’s like five pages long. Right. I know. I thought the same thing. It’s more like window dressing than a working investigation. But, then, if you think about it, drew’s plane went down over the gulf of aden. There was minimal wreckage, no bodies. What are they investigating? Wait. Dante’s right. There was another passenger on the plane. It just doesn’t say the name. That’s interesting. Yeah, I thought that was weird, too. There’s a transaction here that says that there was a seat reserved and paid for by a corporation — lethe unlimited. Why does that sound familiar? Where have we heard that company before? Are you guys up for another round of apartment hunting?

[ Chuckles ] No. Are you — are you talking about another round with your unreasonable standards? I-I’m sorry if I was critical before. Oh, really? “If”? The I-f word? If? If? No. I — I realize I need to get ready for my grandbaby, and I’m sure you can find me the perfect apartment. Maybe with a “friends and family” discount. Okay. All right. Thank you, lucy, so much. But I think we’ve had enough for today. I think we’ve had enough for a lifetime. Pardon me. Ta! Well, that was rude. I need a drink. I am so sorry about her. I — hey. I’m with lucy. Stop apologizing. Besides, gladys has a major redeeming quality. Her son. Ah, I think you might have broken austin’s heart, but props to you for tactfully getting that guy away without raising suspicion. Um, everything I said was the truth. I just left out the part about how I’m terrified that he’ll somehow remember seeing us together that night. Well, for now at least, I think he’ll steer clear of you. Good. So, where were we? Uh, you were saying something that’s true. I’m not a big fan of the quartermaine infighting. I’m more than happy to stay on the periphery. Well, that is what I’m offering you. Quiet above the fray. By all means, claim what’s rightfully yours, but you don’t have to become the very thing you hate. Ta-da!

[ Gasps ] A private jet? Scott: Yes. Yes. I-I wanted to, you know, go all-out for my…

schnitzel. It’s too much. You shouldn’t have. Uh, no. Nothing. Nothing is too good for us. Here you go. And…

[ Glasses clink ]

[ Glasses clink ] What’s wrong? Nothing. Only my regret that this trip isn’t just pleasure for me. Oh. Right. Right, right. The huntington’s conference. Well, I — you know… I just want you to also be able to enjoy a little island time. Once my business is concluded, I promise… I will definitely enjoy myself. I found it. In one of my closed case files. Lethe unlimited. Which case?

[ Exhales sharply ] Nina reeves. Oh! Good, good. ‘Cause I was just gonna get you. Is he gone? Yeah, uh, the interview, it — it came through, so peter, he left. You’re all right? Oh, yeah. Good. You know, I just don’t know. I don’t understand peter. This guy is, like, creepy. Why are you — why are you helping them? I-I owed him a favor. And now my — my debt is paid. So can we — can we not talk about peter anymore? Did you check in on phyllis? Well, phyllis is going out to dinner with janice. Oh. Really? Well, that’s great. I’m glad. And since, you know, phyllis is out and, um, the bar’s closed because of lenny’s death, I thought that, you know… we deserve… a little time. You know. I like the way you think. So… will you go out to dinner with me?

Uh, when did you investigate nina? It was before she came to port charles. Nina’s then-husband, silas clay, hired me to figure out where madeline reeves was keeping her comatose daughter. That’s it! What? Lethe unlimited. It was the operating company for crichton-clark, which was the facility where nina was a patient. That is the same place that drew was held — before robin revived him and helped him escape. Small world. Or not. Jordan. Hey. Thanks for waiting for me. Of course. Everything okay? Ah, for the most part. Uh, jordan, I gave some thought to what you said about me moving on with my life. Your points are valid — reasonable and practical. I’m glad that you see it that way. I do. I just can’t move on until I know the truth. And to get the truth, I’m gonna need your help. You make some valid points, and I promise you that I will take them all into consideration. Don’t need an answer right now, but I do appreciate your time. My poor father. Austin’s definitely going with valentin. I’ll be in touch. I’m so sorry, brook lynn. Valentin can be convincing and charismatic when he wants to be. Fortunately for me… I’ve got an ace in the hole. Who? Where’s the bartender when you need him?! The hospitality in this place could definitely use an upgrade. I saw you talking to mrs. Corinthos earlier. Oh, she won’t be a corinthos for long, and good riddance. Not a fan? Oh, her late husband, may he rest, was my cousin. You’re related to sonny. Ah. And we were like this. Carly isn’t showing proper respect. Remarrying after my wonderful cousin’s been gone less than a year? I mean, I’ve been civil, but it’s wasted on carly. The woman has no class! Bartender! A drink for the lady. Is everything okay? Cyrus is making a move. Are you asking me out on a date? Well, it’s something we haven’t had a chance to do. You know, just the two of us. Like we’re they only two people in the whole world. Aren’t we? How about for tonight we are? Just you and me? Look. I know that we’ve had some kind of tough times lately, right? But maybe now… maybe now everything’s gonna be okay. Why wouldn’t it be? Huh?

[ Rumbling ] Maybe we should wait for this turbulence to stop.

[ Rattling ] Everything’s fine. Look. The plane’s steady now. Nothing to worry about. Just a little turbulence.

[ Alarm blaring ]

[ Liesl screams ]

Young & The Restless Transcript

Y&R logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Abby: Where are they taking him?

Mariah: Is he okay?

Devon: Can we see him again?

Nate: We’re sending him to the nursery so we can give him a bath and run some tests. Perfectly normal. Nothing to worry about.

Devon: But he looks healthy, right?

Nate: Has all his fingers and toes, scored high on the apgar test, lungs sound great.

Mariah: Is there anything else that I need to do?

Nate: Yes, and this is very important. Rest. You and the baby are safe, and you’re surrounded by people who love you. Now all you have to do is let us take care of you.

Devon: Listen, nate, I don’t even know what to say about today, man.

Abby: I do. Thank you.

Mariah: For everything.

Devon: Yeah.

Nate: No, you three did all the hard work. You brought a baby into this world under less than ideal circumstances. Congratulations to you all. I’ll be back shortly.

Devon: Thanks again, man.

Mariah: So crazy. I thought I was never getting out of that room. Some nameless, faceless monster snatched me up off the street. I was afraid that they were only keeping me alive until after the baby was born. After I gave birth to bowie, i wouldn’t be of use to them anymore, so…

Abby: Well, that sounds awful.

Mariah: So, you’re telling me it was stitch. All along, he was the one who was keeping me prisoner?

Devon: That’s — that’s what it’s looking like.

Mariah: Why would he do that?

Rey: And if anything looks promising, send it my way. I want to be the first to know. Thanks.

Victor: Um…

Rey: He was there. Stitch was right there at the house where he was holding mariah, minutes before I got there. But he took off, and now there’s no sign of him.

Chloe: Do you know what time it is?

Sally: Why does that feel like a trick question?

Chloe: [ Laughs ] It is time for you to officially meet my friend and business partner, chelsea lawson.

Chelsea: Hello!

Chloe: Hey, you. I have someone here I want you to meet.

Sally: Chelsea! I’m sally spectra. I — [ Sighs ] This is such a pleasure. I just want you to know how excited I am to be working for you and chloe. I have followed the evolution of your lines for years. Chelsea by jabot was a revelation. The line that you did for forrester really, really set the bar, and then the chelsea 2.0 line, I mean, there was a certain whimsy to it, yet it was grounded and sophisticated. I… I just consider it an honor to be working with you.

Chelsea: And I would consider it a miracle if you came up for air.

[ Chuckles ] Uh, look, I haven’t even decided if I’m taking the position yet, so…

Sally: Oh. But I —

Chloe: Sorry. Wait, wait a minute. Um, we talked about this. You are the reason why i accepted adam’s offer at newman. You and I were going to work together again when you came back. I mean, did you think that i just accepted the job just to torture adam?

Chloe: Listen, chloe, i appreciate all the hard work you’ve put into the platform, but at this point, I can’t really commit.

Nick: Hey.

Phyllis: Hey. Ah, I’m so bummed out that i missed your text about takeout.

Nick: It’s a damn shame. I had to eat it all myself.

Phyllis: You ordered all my things. Oh, I’m sorry I was tied up.

Nick: That’s alright. Yeah, um, sally actually made a point of telling me that. She said you were with jack.

Phyllis: Sally — I mean, i thought I got rid of her when i booted her out of this hotel. She continues to antagonize me.

Nick: Oh, I know what she’s up to. She’s upset that you uncovered her plan to drive summer away, and she’s trying to get back at you.

Phyllis: By trying to make you jealous of my friendship with jack, which is ridiculous.

Nick: I do have a question, though.

Phyllis: Yeah, what is it?

Nick: Just forget about sally’s agenda and be honest.

Phyllis: I’m always honest with you.

Nick: I know. If I wasn’t in the picture, would you be tempted to get back together with jack? Hi. So you’re the scientist here.

Additional sponsorship

provided by…

Phyllis: I mean, I usually like your games. I mean, I excel at them, but this game is hypothetical. It’s weird. I don’t want to answer that. Why are you asking me that? You know that sally is jerking your chain.

Nick: It’s got nothing to do with her. Just trying to have an honest conversation.

Phyllis: Well, I’m being honest. But why a conversation like this, with this hypothetical question? I mean, you are in the picture. And I love you. So I don’t understand where this is coming from. It’s like me asking you, “hey, if I wasn’t in the picture, could you see yourself with sharon?” Could you? No, I’m just kidding.

[ Laughs ] I mean, it’s pointless. Come on.

Nick: I’m just curious. Can you just humor me?

Phyllis: Jack is my friend. We share a bond, and that’s it. Okay? You’re not threatened by him, are you?

Nick: Of course not. I’m extremely confident in our relationship.

Phyllis: Good, because I am a one-man woman, and you are the man for me.

[ Video call ringing ]

Adam: [ Sighs ] Chelsea.

Chelsea: Hey. How’s everything going?

Adam: It’s busy. Is your mother doing better?

Chelsea: She’s on the mend. Is connor doing okay now that camp is over?

Adam: He’s enjoying the rest of his summer, and he’s actually looking forward to going back to school. I think he’s found some comfort in a normal routine.

Chelsea: Well, thank you for maintaining structure for him while I got the help I needed and found my footing.

Adam: Well, he loves you. He needs you in his life, chelsea. I want that for him. And for you.

Chelsea: You sound like you mean it.

Adam: Because I do.

Chelsea: Hey, listen, so there’s another reason for my call. I just spoke to chloe about this woman that she hired, sally spectra. I just had a video chat with her.

Adam: Uh-huh. So what do you think?

Chelsea: I’m not so sure about her.

Adam: Why not?

Chelsea: Have you seen her résumé? Have you looked into her track record?

Adam: I’ve heard a thing or two.

Chelsea: She created her own company, then goes to work at forrester, then abruptly leaves la for genoa city. She apparently burned a bunch of bridges because she was quick to take the job as lauren’s assistant and then somehow gets herself promoted to head of jcv. And then it only took lauren, what, two minutes to see right through her and fire her?

Adam: Well, I think newman media is a better fit.

Chelsea: Okay, I understand that chloe saw something in her worth taking a chance on, and i understand being in the position to need that, but I talked to that girl for less than a minute and I could tell that she was a master manipulator with blind ambition with a total lack of scruples.

Adam: And you got all of that from one conversation?

Chelsea: I know you’ve given chloe free rein to run the fashion platform, but this sally deserves a second look.

Adam: You have nothing to worry about. Chloe’s in charge of the division, but believe, I have my eye on everything.

Mariah: Stitch, the doctor, he ignored me while I was screaming for help? He made me terrified that I was gonna die all while trying not to upset the child that I was carrying.

Abby: Well, apparently, he thought that if he abducted you, then he could rescue you and he would be a hero in my eyes.

Mariah: I went into labor all alone. I was terrified that I was gonna have to bring bowie into this world all by myself. I want him locked up forever for what he did to me and what could’ve happened to bowie. Please tell me that he’s not gonna get away with this.

Devon: Mariah, the police are on top of it, so he’s gonna get found.

Elena: Hey, everyone. So only two visitors are allowed at a time right now, and there are two people anxiously waiting to see mariah, so I’m gonna have to ask you to step out.

Devon: Oh, yeah.

Abby: We’ll be right back.

Tessa: Oh, my god.

Sharon: Sweetheart.

Tessa: I knew you’d come back to me.

Sharon: Oh, goodness. Thank god. You have idea…

Tessa: Oh, I missed you.

Mariah: I missed you more, i promise.

Sharon: I’m just glad that you’re back with us, safe.

Mariah: Me, too, mom. I was socared. Now, we all know progressive offers 24/7 protection,

Nick: I’m sorry. I’m sorry. That’s not what I meant. I did not mean to make you uncomfortable.

Phyllis: Okay, thanks. That makes me think of victoria, though. You know, how difficult it must be for her to be in love with somebody who doesn’t have a lot of time. It helps that he’s a millionaire. But she’d probably want to savor every moment, don’t you think? And then there’s the interference from helpful relatives.

Nick: I wish I could leave it alone, you know? I wish I could trust victoria’s instincts when it comes to ashland, but I can’t shake this feeling that he can’t be trusted. I mean, why does this wedding have to happen so fast? It doesn’t make sense. There’s got to be more to the story.

Phyllis: I understand, but if she’s happy, just let her be happy.

Nick: I wish I felt that way for all the reasons you said. I do. You know, when you find love, you got to grab onto it.

Phyllis: I know you’re worried about your sister, and i think that’s beautiful. And I’m the last person to judge you for running interference after what I did, so I’m not gonna argue with you, okay?

Nick: [ Laughs ]

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh, it’s my dad. Hey, dad.

Victor: Hi, my boy. I just wanted you to know that you’re an uncle once again. Abby is a mother.

Nick: Great. That’s awesome. What about mariah?

Victor: Mariah and the baby are resting comfortably at memorial, alright? You know, they’ve all been through an enormous ordeal, as you know.

Nick: Alright, well, I want to see them.

Victor: I would hold off with that. Let them rest a little. I’ll fill you in on the details.

Nick: Yeah, yeah, cool. Well, thanks for calling, and congratulations, grandpa.

Victor: [ Laughs ] Talk to you later.

Phyllis: Good news?

Nick: The best.

Nate: Hey, cuz. You good?

Devon: Hey. Yeah, yeah, I am good. Really good. I was just thinking about how happy I am that you answered the phone when I called you.

[ Both laugh ]

Nate: Oh, man, I can — I can only imagine the voicemail you would have left me.

Devon: Oh, dude, I wouldn’t have known what to do.

Nate: Well, definitely a call I’m glad I didn’t miss.

Devon: Yeah, me too. And I just — I want to tell you again how grateful I am that you were there for us and helped us out and just how calm and professional you were through that whole thing, ’cause it was — it’s a lot. It’s really something, man, seeing a new life come into the world like that. Like, even though I was focused on helping mariah and making sure the baby was okay, I could still register that there was a miracle happening.

Nate: Yeah.

Devon: You know?

Nate: Does something to you.

Devon: It was crazy. Then to get hold him in my arms until he stopped crying, I felt that connection instantly with him. And just staring into his big eyes. Just sitting here, it’s got me reliving the whole thing. I mean, thinking about all sorts of — thinking about my time with hilary, everything we shared. I’m probably not making sense. I’m all over the place.

Nate: No, no, no. That baby is carrying a part of you. And you helped bring him into this world. I think you’re making perfect sense.

Sharon: I know how awful this must have been for you, and I was so scared for you. We all were. But you were my brave girl and you got yourself and the baby through this. You know what? We can talk about all this later. I’m gonna give you two some private time.

Tessa: You okay?

Mariah: Yeah, I am now.

Tessa: I love you so much.

Mariah: Oh. I felt you there with me, you know?

Tessa: I felt you, too. I said so many prayers and made promises. Just please let me see her face again, and I’ll spend the rest of my life looking at that beautiful face. And now you’re here. And I’m never gonna let you go again. Is now a good time for a flare-up?

Abby: Dad.

Victor: Hi, sweetheart.

Abby: I thought you left.

Victor: No, I went shopping.

Abby: For me?

Victor: Have a seat.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: No, not for you. For my grandson. But I’m sure he wouldn’t mind if you opened it.

Abby: Aww.

Victor: You know, it so reminds me of the one that you played with when you were a toddler.

Abby: Oodles. Yeah, I remember him.

[ Both laugh ]

Victor: I hope your son will love stuffed animals as much as you do.

Abby: Thank you. And thank you for bringing in your investigators.

Victor: I’d do anything for you.

Abby: I know that feeling now because I have a baby of my own.

Victor: I’m so happy for you. Now, I know you’re gonna have to, you know, be concerned with mariah and the baby and visit them and take care of them, and, um… but I am so looking forward to my first visit. Okay?

Abby: So am I.

Victor: You take care, alright?

Abby: Alright.

Victor: And get some rest, you know.

Abby: I will. I love you, dad.

Victor: I adore you. And remember, first visit better come soon.

Abby: Soon.

Devon: Mr. Newman.

Abby: [ Sighs, chuckles ] Did we really just do that?

Devon: I think we really did just do that, yeah. I think so. I know, it’s all still sinking in. It’s probably gonna make sense to us in like 10 years when we look back on everything. Or it never will.

Abby: No.

Devon: Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] No. All I know is that you said you wanted a family, and then we all came together and we made that perfect little boy. And we got to witness him being born. Doesn’t get much better than that, you know? I’m just so incredibly thankful that things didn’t turn out worse, ’cause it could’ve.

Abby: I know, I was just thinking the same thing. Because of stitch, our innocent little baby might not have been able to come into this world. You know, you didn’t just help create him, you saved his life, because you listened to your instincts. I mean, me, I was too bowled over by ben’s kindness to see what was going on until it was almost too late.

Devon: Don’t do that. You don’t need to start blaming yourself, abby. There’s no one would have been able to predict that stitch would do something that damn crazy. Nobody. He’s always been a trustworthy guy and a good guy. I wouldn’t even let myself believe it at first.

Abby: But you — you sensed that something was off and you had the courage to act on your suspicions.

Devon: The two of you were married, and he definitely played a lot on that, so you don’t have anything to feel guilty about. Hell, you’re the one that came through and found mariah. Between you doing that and nate coaching us through everything, that baby is okay and safe because of what we all did together.

Elena: I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen you smile this much.

Nate: [ Sighs ] Coaching my cousin through childbirth was not the way i expected this day to go.

Elena: But it was a very special surprise, wasn’t it?

Nate: I think this experience had a profound effect on devon. You know, not just witnessing a newborn making his way into this world, but, uh…a baby he’s connected to, you know, that’s carrying a part of him. I think it him in ways he wasn’t expecting.

Elena: Because of the baby he lost with hilary.

Nate: Devon’s already got a bond with this child. Something deep, meaningful.

Elena: I am so happy for devon.

Nate: Hey, I got to tell you, though, this kid is lucky to have devon in his life right from the start.

[ Both laugh ]

Elena: Definitely.

Nate: Oh, man. There is so many ways this could’ve gone wrong, given the circumstances. But I am thoroughly impressed. They all kept their heads. They did it.

Elena: Yeah, with your help.

Nate: I’m not sure how much i helped.

Elena: What? You stayed calm and you shared your knowledge and you gave everyone the confidence they needed. I am so grateful that it all turned out okay and so happy for everyone involved. And I couldn’t be prouder of you.

Sally: Phyllis, wow, someone really ought to put a bell around your neck.

Phyllis: I’d like to put something around your neck.

Sally: Oh. Can you say that a little louder? Maybe someone can record you, and then I can actually use it as —

Phyllis: I have one message for you — you stay away from my man.

Sally: Wow. Insecurity, it’s astonishing.

Phyllis: That is your first and final warning.

Sally: What on earth set you off? I mean, I actually barely even remember the last time that i saw h– oh, no. No, no, no, I actually do remember. Nick was planning a romantic surprise for the two of you, but you were too busy fawning all over jack, so eager to claim your place in his life.

Phyllis: Okay, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Jack and I are —

Sally: In the past. Yeah, I agree, and it would probably be healthier for the two of you if you learned to move on ’cause, otherwise, just seems inappropriate.

Phyllis: Wait, you’re telling me something’s inappropriate?

Sally: You couldn’t stand how much jack was into me, that i actually made him happy.

Phyllis: You keep coming at me like some delusional plan of retaliation, and that’s not a good idea, I am telling you. Haven’t you had enough? Isn’t this over for you?

Sally: I’m still here, aren’t I? I brought in ensure max protein,

“The young and the restless”

will continuE.

Phyllis: Wow. You are really full of yourself, aren’t you?

Sally: I have a right to be, ’cause despite all your attempts to ruin my life, I actually landed on my feet.

Phyllis: Oh, sally, come on. Chloe threw you a bone. And adam, he likes working with the town pariah. You’re delusional, completely delusional. Oh, chloe is smart and tough. Obviously, she doesn’t mind dealing with a two-faced opportunist.

Sally: Yeah, we have that in common.

Phyllis: Yeah, and once you do something completely underhanded — and you will — you will be cut off.

Sally: You keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better, but the truth is, chloe actually knows how valuable I am and she’s not too much of a hypocrite to give me an opportunity to make a name for myself on a fashion platform that just so happens to be a part of a powerhouse media company, so, yes, it’s a fantastic opportunity. And just so you know, adam and I, we’ve got no issues. We actually really get each other.

Phyllis: Oh.

[ Laughs ]

Sally: What?

Phyllis: You and adam “get each other.” Oh, wow. This is great. I’m — I’m actually envisioning this whole thing playing out. Wow. You know the best part of it is when karma comes knocking at your door and takes you out.

Sally: It’s gonna be so much fun proving you wrong.

Phyllis: Yeah, it’s gonna be a lot of fun, that’s for sure. You know what? You go ahead and you do your thing with adam. Be besties with adam, it’s great. But…I’m telling you, okay? Get out of my orbit. Get out of my life. I don’t want to hear my name mentioned by you, or your stay in this town will come to a very abrupt end. Do you get that?

Tessa: [ Humming ]

Sharon: Hey, how’s our girl?

Tessa: She’s still pretty anxious, but at least she’s able to let go and get some rest that she really needs.

Sharon: Every minute she was away from us must have been a nightmare for her.

Tessa: I just wish I could make it all go away.

Sharon: You know what? We’re gonna do our best and we’re gonna help her get through this.

Tessa: Um, will you sit with her for a little while? I just have to run home and grab some things for her, and I — I don’t want her waking up alone.

Sharon: Of course.

Tessa: We’ll take shifts. I’ll see you soon.

Sharon: Okay.

Devon: Hey, tessa.

Tessa: I want to say thank you for finding mariah and bringing her home to me.

Devon: Tessa, you know you don’t have to thank us for that. You know how much we love her.

Tessa: I’m just really grateful that mariah has so many people that care about her. Um, okay. I’m going to go home and grab some things for her, but before I go, do you happen to know where the chapel is?

Devon: I think it’s on the third floor. Why?

Tessa: Well, sharon and i prayed really hard for mariah to come home, so I think it’s time for me to say thanks.

Devon: See ya.

Nick: Hey, have you heard?

Adam: Hmm?

Nick: We got a new nephew. Newest addition to the newman family and the abbotts and the chancellors.

Adam: Ah. Yeah, pedigree like that, kid’s got his work cut out for him.

Nick: Yeah, christian’s gonna be so fired up when he hears he’s got a new little cousin to show the ropes to.

Adam: Um, speaking of our ever-growing family, victoria and locke?

Nick: Yeah. An october wedding.

Adam: What’s your take?

Nick: You know, vick seems like she’s in love, and from all appearances, it seems like ashland is, too.

Adam: Come on, you’re being vague because you’re too polite to say that you are less than thrilled.

Nick: Vick seems happy. That’s all I care about. And they don’t know how much time they have left together, so I guess they should make it official, right?

Adam: Unless there’s a reason why they shouldn’T. I mean, how much do we really know about ashland locke?

Nick: Man, I have been asking myself that over and over again.

Adam: Mm.

Sally: Nick, good to run into you again. Hi, boss.

Nick: Got to go. See ya.

Adam: Yep. You know, I get the feeling he does not care for you.

Sally: Yeah, he’s still miffed about the whole summer thing, but don’t worry, I will turn things around. I love a challenge. In fact, adam, you have inspired me.

Adam: I don’t know if I’ve ever heard my name and the word “inspired” in the same sentence.

Sally: Well, you told me that instead of wasting my energy on putting phyllis in her place that I should focus on making a name for myself.

Adam: Oh, no. What have I unleashed?

Sally: Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Adam: So, are you gonna tell me what your plan is?

Sally: We’ll see.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] As someone who resembles someone else…

Abby: So, I was thinking that since mariah can only have two visitors right now, and sharon’s in there, that maybe…

Devon: [ Chuckles ] What are you waiting for, mama? Get in there. Go ahead. I was actually gonna — gonna give lily a call ’cause she has no idea what’s happened.

Abby: Oh, she’s gonna be shocked.

Devon: Oh, yeah, she is. She’s gonna want to come and visit the little guy. God. I wish that — I wish neil was here to meet him, you know?

Abby: Well, I have no doubt that neil is here with us right now, and he is smiling on our perfect little boy.

Devon: Yeah.

Adam: Come on, you have to give me a hint on what I have inspired you to do to make a name for yourself.

Sally: It is something that will be good for the fashion platform and newman media.

Adam: Well, I hope that means you have officially abandoned the idea of seeking revenge on phyllis.

Chloe: We have too much to achieve to waste time on personal vendettas.

Adam: That’s exactly what i told her. Especially since tomorrow is the official, very public launch of newman media and we need to be ready to hit the ground running.

Chloe: We are more than ready.

Adam: Good. Uh, I’m heading back to the office, so I’ll see you in the morning. I suggest you come in early.

Chloe: Why on earth would you tell him that you are thinking about going after phyllis?

Sally: It’s fine. I agreed with him that it would be a waste of time, and i promised him that I would channel all my energy into newman because I appreciate what a wonderful and rare opportunity this is, and I’m not gonna blow it. But I do get the feeling that chelsea may not be on board with me being a part of this.

Chloe: No, she is. She just… it takes her a while to get used to people, but trust me, she will come around once she sees how talented you are.

Sally: But she said that she may not even want to join us.

Chloe: She will. But there has been a lot of upheaval in her life lately. You know how it is. But I am not gonna let her say anything but yes to working with us.

Abby: Well, chance, you are a dad. Just like you always wanted. And I have no way of letting you know. It breaks my heart. I just wish you were here to meet your son.

[ Sighs ]

[ Door opens ] Hi.

Elena: Hi. Guess who’s ready for his feeding.

Abby: Oh. Well, you don’t work in pediatrics. This is outside your hospital duties.

Elena: I know. I volunteered to help with this little guy. I was so excited, I couldn’t stay away. Though he is very hungry.

Abby: Oh. Well, um, mariah and I, we had all these birth plans, but then everything went out the window when things went haywire.

Elena: What was your feeding plan?

Abby: Mariah was gonna pump, but, um, if he’s hungry, then we should supplement with formula for now.

Elena: I came prepared. First…here is your son. There we go.

Abby: Hi. Ohh. You remember me?

[ Chuckles ] Isn’t he the most amazing baby in the world?

Elena: Here. Enjoy. The first feeding only happens once.

Abby: [ Sighs ] My plaque psoriasis…

Chloe: Hey, gorgeous. Look, I know you have a lot going on, but it’s time for you to make some decisions. It’s time for you to reclaim your life.

Chelsea: I’ve got reservations about working with sally.

Chloe: Fine. Come home, spend some time with her, see if you think that she is a good fit, but don’t talk like you’re not gonna take the job because then you don’t get an opinion.

Chelsea: I’ve heard things about her.

Chloe: Well, she has heard some things about us, too, but I’m telling you, she is talented and she is motivated and hungry.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] I don’t know. I need to think about it.

Chloe: Chelsea, time is running out. Life is moving on, and you have to make the decision if you are going to move on, too. Newman media is launching tomorrow. Come home. Work with me, like we planned. We can only hold onto this position for so long. I’ve got sally here. I’m just afraid that if you don’t join us soon, we’re gonna be forced to move on without you.

Sally: Knock knock.

Adam: I think you’re supposed to say that before you come in.

Sally: Huh, never really been one for tradition.

Adam: Hmm. Surprised to see you here so late.

Sally: Well, I took a break from plotting phyllis’ downfall to do some actual work. I didn’t realize the newman media launch party was tomorrow night until you mentioned it, so I thought i should have something to show you.

Adam: You do realize that i leave all the fashion decisions up to chloe.

Sally: Yeah, but maybe I want your opinion. Maybe I just want to show you this because it’s perfect for the launch.

Adam: [ Sighs ] It’s good. It’s good. You really are talented, sally spectra.

Sally: Wow, don’t sound so surprised.

Adam: No, we will definitely use this. So, now that I’ve complimented your work, are you going to tell me what you plan to do to make a name for yourself?

Sally: Not ready to share that just yet, but keep the word “spectacular” in the back of your head.

Adam: I’m determined to get this out of you. So I was thinking that you might like to accompany me to the party to celebrate the official launch of newman media tomorrow. Do you have any interest?

Sally: We’ll see.

Abby: You are the bravest baby in the world. Absolute perfection. Look at your little eyes. It’s like you know all the secrets of the universe. I have never loved anyone as much as I love you. I have waited my entire life for you. And I have so much to tell you, but I know you’ve had a very busy day, so I’ll let you rest now. Mommy’s here. Mommy’s got you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: Chad, it’s good to see you.

Chad: Yeah, it’s good to see you too, jack. It’s been a while.

Jack: Yeah. Yeah. I’m, um–I’m sorry about that.

Chad: Uh, brought you something. Thomas made it for you at, uh– at art camp.

Jack: Hm.

[Chuckles] Well, you know, I–I was just thinking, I–I needed a new paperweight.

Chad: [Chuckles] It’s a–it’s a good save, yeah. It, um–it exploded in the kiln, and, uh, that’s what was left.

Jack: Well, I’m thrilled he’s even thinking about me.

Chad: Well, I’m hoping the vase he makes for, uh–for abby is more successful. And survives the trip to boston, if necessary.

Jack: Right.

Chad: Have you talked to her?

Jack: Uh, abigail, yeah, I did this morning.

Chad: Did she say anything? Is she, uh–is she ever coming home?

[Door opens]

Gwen: What’s all this?

Xander: I took the liberty of ordering more oysters, so, uh, why don’t you lose the robe and get back into bed? We can gobble up this lot… and then each other.

Gwen: [Laughs] I don’t think so.

Melinda: How the hell did you get the charges dropped against xander cook?

Ej: I made a motion to dismiss, the judge complied.

Melinda: He did not throw out this case based on merit. I put it together myself. The dimera family used its influence to overrule the justice system again.

Ej: Has it entered your mind that I might just be better at my job than you are at yours?

Melinda: [Chuckles] A lot has changed since you last lived in salem. Your father’s dead now.

Ej: I’m aware of that.

Melinda: You may think you and your family can get away with perverting justice, but I’m putting you on notice. Your days of running roughshod over the people in this town are over.

Tripp: Well, looks like we’re the first ones here.

Allie: [Sighs] Yeah. Did chanel go home to change?

Tripp: No, just to get the new guy. You ready for his name?

Allie: Mm-hmm.

Tripp: Giovanni.

Allie: Well, that’s weird.

Tripp: How so?

Allie: My brother johnny, um, that’s what his grandfather used to call him.

Tripp: Could be a coincidence?

Allie: Yeah. Maybe. But he did say he met someone. I mean, you don’t think that– oh, my god, it’s him.

Tripp: Your brother?

Allie: Mm-hmm. Hi, johnny.

Johnny: Uh, hey.

Chanel: You two know each other?

Johnny: Uh, yeah. Do–do you know allie?

Chanel: Yeah, only since forever.

Johnny: Eh, not as long as I have, guaranteed. You must be tripp.

Tripp: Uh, tripp johnson.

Johnny: Hey, gi–well, uh, johnny. Um, this is my good friend, chanel. We’re here to meet the bff and her boyfriend for some drinks.

Allie: I’m the bff.

Johnny: Uh…

Allie: Chanel is my best friend. And giovanni here is my twin brother.

[Dramatic music]


Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]


Bonnie: Uh, this is my sister-in-law, calista lockhart. Justin is my fiancé.

Calista: [Gasps] Oh! Congratulations.

Justin: I–you never told me you had a sister-in-law.

Bonnie: [Exhales]

Calista: Well, she does. And I’m her! [Laughs]

Justin: You must be…

Calista: Bonnie’s late husband’s sister.

Justin: Right. Is that what you said you could never explain to me? That you have a sister-in-law I didn’t know about?

Chanel: Oh, my god, giovanni is…

Johnny: Italian for johnny, yeah.

Allie: It’s what his nonno used to call him.

Tripp: Nonno?

Allie: It’s, um, italian for grandpa.

Tripp: Ah.

Chanel: I can’t believe you’re allie’s brother.

Allie: How did you not know?

Chanel: Well, you said you had a brother named johnny. You didn’t say anything about your grandfather calling him giovanni.

Allie: Well, actually he wasn’t my grandfather.

Chanel: But you’re twins.

Allie: It’s complicated. You’d have to know my mother.

Johnny: So, uh, I guess we can kinda skip the whole awkward getting-to-know-you part and just get right to drinking, yeah?

Ej: You’ve made yourself clear. Are we done?

Melinda: Not by a long shot. For starters, I’m going to find out how you managed to remain a member of the state bar during your long convalescence in italy, which included an extended period where you were mentally incompetent.

Ej: I’d be offended by that statement if I hadn’t just bested you.

Melinda: [Laughs] Bested me? I don’t have the legal right to throw around my money or my family name before I enter a courtroom. I swore to adhere to the rule of law. And I’m warning you, mr. Dimera, you don’t want me for an enemy.

Ej: [Chuckles] You were my enemy years ago. I’m used to you.

Melinda: I won’t stop digging until I find something to use against you and your drug dealing client.

Xander: Come on, I kept your spot warm for you. Where else would you rather be?

Gwen: Nowhere.

[Mutters] Oh, my god. This is completely mental, okay? I only just came over here yesterday to thank you for covering for me with my dad, and that was yesterday. And I’m still here.

Xander: What can I say? I just love the way you say thank you. I skipped breakfast just so i could hear it all over again.

Gwen: And lunch, and now it’s, what, bloody happy hour?

Xander: So, lose the robe and let’s get happy. Come on, love. You know you want it.

Gwen: My goodness, I know I’m going to regret this.

[Slow sensual music]


Jack: Can’t you ask abigail what her plans are?

Chad: Well, jack–I keep– I keep trying, and she always changes the subject. I miss her, and the kids miss her horribly, and I know she misses them too, but, you know, she won’t even make a plan for me to take them to see her. I mean, has she said anything to you about us?

Jack: No. No, look, I–I’m getting a version of the same treatment you’re getting. All I can think about is how hurt she was by the way that i talked to her when gwen had her miscarriage.

Chad: Yeah, well, me too. I just…

Jack: What?

Chad: It just seems like she doesn’t wanna see me… and it makes me really scared and…

Jack: Scared that what?

Chad: What if she never comes home? You know, what if– what if my marriage is over? As someone who resembles someone else…

Bonnie: [Chuckles] Calista, she–[Chuckles]– She friended me on social media after all this time, and, well, I guess I got carried away and invited her to the wedding. Isn’t that right?

Calista: Sure. I mean, right.

Bonnie: And I know that we wanted to keep it small and all, and calista’s a shirt tail relative, but I’m sorry for asking someone you don’t even know without, you know, letting you know first.

Justin: That’s okay. She’s your sister-in-law.

Calista: Ex-sister-in-law.

Justin: Well, you know, it’s your wedding as much as mine. So, if calista’s important to you, then she should be here.

Calista: Oh, I am so important to bonnie, and I can’t even tell you how important she is to me.

Chanel: You guys are twins. You don’t look anything alike.

Allie: Well, we have different dads. Remember?

Johnny: I get, uh, all my good looks from my–my dad’s–

Allie: His ego, too.

Johnny: Yeah. That’s the only thing I get from him, so, don’t worry.

Chanel: Why would I worry?

Johnny: How much have you heard about the, uh, dimeras?

Ej: You won’t dig up anything on me that you don’t already know. As you pointed out, I’ve been recovering from serious injuries for years.

Melinda: But the rest of your family’s been busy. Did you know that your sister kristen pushed my daughter down a flight of stairs and killed her?

Ej: No.

Melinda: It’s true. She also broke out of prison, threatened or harmed four other people, including your wife, and now she’s on the run. So, you better hope that your sister kristen hasn’t reached out to you in any way, because I will find out. You also have a son who just showed up in salem.

Ej: You leave johnny out of this.

Melinda: Hit a nerve, did I? But maybe that’s because you’re planning on grooming him to take over the family business.

Ej: Goodbye, ms. Trask.

Melinda: But you should really rethink that, I mean, if you actually care about what’s good for him.

Ej: Get out of my house, now.

[Tense music]


Melinda: Oh, I also found it interesting that you just appeared claiming to be mr. Cook’s lawyer before he ever used his phone call.

Ej: Xander was my caregiver for years right after my accident. I owe him one… and he owes me more.


[Both exhale]

Gwen: [Chuckles] How many calories do you think we just burned?

Xander: [Exhales] Well… to my mind, we’ve earned the right to, uh, order down for steaks and champagne.

Gwen: Xander, this is–this is getting really expensive. Not to mention your lawyer.

Xander: Worry about him tomorrow.

[Phone rings] Oh, speak of the devil.

Gwen: What, your lawyer?

Xander: Yeah, I have to take this. What’s happening?

Ej: You’re officially off the hook.

Xander: Already?

Ej: I told you I’d take care of it. Get yourself over to the police station and pick up your personal effects. I’ll come by to collect what you owe me.

Chad: I just–I see it all clearly now, and–and I told her that before she left. I mean, I thought that we were in a–a good place, and–and after what she said that she wanted to go spend some time with her mom and work through all of these–these things, I thought it was a good idea. I just didn’t think she would be gone this long.

Jack: I know. I know. I know. Look, if–if there’s anything that I can do…

Chad: Actually, there is.

I may have moderate to

severe rheumatoid arthritis.

Chad: Can you maybe talk to, um–talk to jenn? I–I know she says that laura’s estate seems to be more complicated than she had thought, but it just–it feels like abby’s using that as an excuse to just stay away from me. I mean, like, even if she doesn’t wanna be around me, kids miss their mom, you know?

Jack: Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I promise you, I’m gonna talk to abigail and jennifer.

Chad: All right. Thank you.

Jack: And–and, uh, I know that I have been missing in action with thomas and charlotte myself, and–and I plan to remedy that.

Chad: Sorry, I was gonna bring them over today. I just didn’t wanna take the chance of them running into their old nanny or that drug runner you had sleeping on your couch.

Jack: Ah. Yeah, yeah. Well, that was, uh, poor judgment on my part, but, uh, I’ve thrown xander out.

Chad: Good.

Jack: Not before he managed to con gwen into making drops for him.

Chad: You’re kidding.

Jack: No. I–I really–I wish I was. But at least he’s out of here and he’s–he’s out of her life for good.

Xander: So sorry to bail on you like this.

Gwen: No, it’s all right. My dad’s going to be wondering where I am anyway.

Xander: [Chuckles] Well, I’ll be glad to see the back of my legal troubles, even if it is gonna cost me a literal fortune.

Gwen: [Sighs] I really wish that you didn’t have to take the rap for me. I wish that just being honest with chad about losing my baby before I took the fall, and then that way snyder would have had nothing over my head. And now I have to worry about my dad finding out the truth.

Xander: He won’T. Snyder’s dead, and I won’t open my mouth.

Gwen: I really don’t know how to thank you.

Xander: Well, you, uh, already did.

Gwen: I’m going to miss you.

Xander: Why? You going somewhere?

Gwen: No. My dad would absolutely hate it if he knew that we were seeing each other. It wouldn’t make sense to him anyway, because he doesn’t know that you covered for me. He thinks that you’re some drug man who conned his daughter into making drops for him. No, he’d be–he’d be determined to get to the bottom of this. And if he found out the truth…

Xander: No, I–I get it. But there’s no chance we could keep it a secret? Us? Our little whatever you wanna call it?

Gwen: Another secret, xander? In this town?

Xander: Right.

Gwen: So, um, this is going to have to be goodbye then, I’m afraid.

Xander: No, I understand. Well, uh, hopefully I’ll see you around sometime.

Gwen: Yeah. You too.

[Somber music]


Chanel: Theo filled me in some on your family. His mother was a dimera.

Johnny: Aunt lexie, yeah. Um, how do you know theo?

Chanel: I was on vacation in south africa. Met him in johannesburg. We dated for a while.

Johnny: In johannesburg?

Chanel: What can I say? I get around.

Johnny: Yeah.

Allie: I just realized something. That thirst trap guy that I was begging you to show me, that was you?

Johnny: It was just a selfie with my shirt off.

Tripp: You were begging to see a shirtless selfie?

Allie: Only to make sure that he was up to chanel’s standards.

Johnny: Do I pass?

Allie: Ew, you’re my brother.

Johnny: I need to know. I hear I’ve got competition.

Allie: What does that mean?

Johnny: That the last person that chanel kissed before me was you.

[Soft jazz music playing]


Justin: I have some good news. Steve has agreed to be my best man.

Bonnie: Oh, that’s great.

Justin: Under the circumstances, I thought you’d be a little happier.

Bonnie: Well, I am happy honey. [Giggles] I’m thrilled with that.

Calista: Circumstances?

Bonnie: Steve is the brother of justin’s first wife.

Calista: Oh, I see.

Bonnie: Listen, justin, again, I’m sorry for not giving you the heads up about calista coming to the wedding. I just–I just never thought I’d see her again.

Justin: I thought you said you invited her.

Bonnie: [Laughs] But I never thought she’d show up. And she’s changed so much since the last time I saw her.

Calista: I have an idea. How about the three of us celebrate your wedding with a toast? You wouldn’t happen to have a little bottle of champagne lying around?

Justin: You know what? I will ask henderson to go grab a bottle from the cellar. Excuse me.

Bonnie: Okay.

Calista: [Giggles] Who’s henderson?

Bonnie: He’s the butler.

Calista: Oh, and that cellar, it’s just for wine?

Bonnie: What are you getting at?

Calista: Well, justin isn’t just handsome. He’s also filthy rich.

Bonnie: That’s not why I love him.

Calista: Ha! Right. So, anyway, how’d you get rid of the first wife?

Bonnie: I didn’T. She died in an accident.

Calista: How convenient.

Bonnie: Oh, no, no, no, no. No. Justin and I fell in love way after that.

Calista: Aww. So, you found true love? Well, it’s just a shame that you won’t be marrying justin, or anyone else for that matter, until you pay me back the money you owe me.

Bonnie: Oh, god, you don’t know the whole story.

Calista: What is there to know? You ran off with that buddybucks ticket, and now you owe me $1 million.

Bonnie: I keep telling you, I don’t have the money.

Calista: Oh, you better come through for me, bon bon… or I will show dimples this here little gun, the one with your fingerprints all over it.

Bonnie: Keep–[Grunts]– Keep that in your purse.

Calista: And then I’m gonna tell justin all about how you killed my husband. Just what’s he gonna say when he hears what you did to my beloved harrison?

Bonnie: [Screams]

Go on… put yourselves

through all that pain.

Bonnie: My god! I’m shot! Somebody–somebody shot me!

Justin: Bonnie? Bonnie?

Bonnie: Huh?

Justin: You’re not shot. I just popped the champagne cork. I’m sorry, it was so loud.

Bonnie: [Laughs]

Justin: It’s okay.

Bonnie: No, I knew that, i was just–I was just making a joke. [Chuckles]

Justin: You seem a little jumpy.

Bonnie: Huh?

Justin: Is there something you’re not telling me?

Bonnie: No, of course not. I just–oh, my god, probably have wedding jitters or something.

Calista: Really? You know, when bonnie married my brother, she was just as relaxed as a toad in the sun. Should’ve known that was a bad sign.

Bonnie: Don’t listen to her. She thinks she’s being funny, just like me just now with that dumb joke about thinking I was shot. [Laughs] Stupid.

Justin: No worries. Okay, let’s, uh, have this toast.

Calista: Oh, whoa, those cost a couple hundred bucks a bottle.

Justin: Special occasion.

Calista: You got a real nice place here… full of nice stuff. Ooh. This must’ve cost a fortune.

Bonnie: No–[Laughs] That’s fragile, hon.

[Both chuckle]

Justin: Here you go. Bonnie?

Bonnie: Thanks, babe.

Justin: Uh, calista… we were, uh, going to have a toast.

Calista: Oh, sorry! I forgot.


Justin: Okay–

Calista: Here’s to the happy couple. I wish you a million blessings in your new life together.

Chanel: You told johnny we kissed? What, you’ve known him for, like, three days?

Chanel: I didn’t tell him. My mom opened her big mouth when johnny and I were having drinks, not that I care who knows about us.

Allie: Dupree, there is no us.

Chanel: You know what I mean. I don’t go around blabbing about my past relationships to a guy I just met.

Johnny: Yeah, except it doesn’t sound like this relationship is totally in the past.

Tripp: What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Ej: The charges will be expunged from your personal record as long as you keep to the straight and narrow for the next two years.

Melinda: [Scoffs] Him? Forget it.

Xander: I want all the stuff I had to hand over after I was arrested.

Melinda: I have the inventory right here. Dirty socks. Dirty magazines.

Xander: I had everything i owned with me when shawn brady put me in handcuffs.

Melinda: Including a briefcase containing $1 million. Oh, excuse me, $1 million minus your bail money. Nothing suspicious about that, right, counselor?

Ej: The charges against mr. Cook have been dropped. Your suspicions are not his concern.

Melinda: They are if he committed a crime obtaining that money. Blackmail? Bribery? I intend on finding out where that money came from, and until I do, it does not leave the evidence room, you understand?

Tackling tough messes can

take more time than you have,

Johnny: Tripp, buddy, calm down.

Tripp: I’m not your buddy.

Johnny: Look, all I’m saying is that allie and chanel are still best friends and business partners. It’s not like they’re not gonna see each other anymore.

Tripp: Okay.

Johnny: You’ve been holding out on me. Not only do I have a gay older brother, but I have a sister who’s bi.

Allie: No, you don’T. And if you keep acting like this, tripp and I are going to leave.

Chanel: Don’t blame him, okay? It’s all my mother’s fault.

Tripp: Look, I’m not judging anybody. Honestly, I thought it was kinda hot, the idea of chanel hooking up with a woman, until I found out it was, you know, you.

Tripp: You know what, this will cover our drinks. We’re out of here.

Johnny: Look, I’m sorry.

Allie: No, you’re not. When did you become ej?

Chanel: Allie!

Justin: So, you two haven’t been in touch until she saw you on social media?

Bonnie: [Chuckles]

Calista: Well, you know, I found it difficult to maintain the friendship after bonnie went to prison for killing my brother.

Justin: Well, I understand there were extenuating circumstances.

Calista: I know, but still.

Justin: So, what made you decide to reconnect with her?

Calista: Well, we both have dead husbands now. Common bond. Her husband was murdered… and so was mine.

Justin: Oh, I’m sorry. That’s awful.

Calista: It is… especially since the person who killed my husband got away with it. Hopefully, somehow that person will be brought to justice.

Ej: You have no right to confiscate the money that mr. Cook earned legally.

Melinda: Are you worried about collecting your fee, mr. Dimera?

Ej: Not at all. That money was paid to mr. Cook by my wife for services rendered.

Melinda: [Laughs] That was samantha dimera’s money?

Ej: It’s mine.

Melinda: Did you know about their transaction?

Ej: Not till after the fact. So I suggest you contact samantha for the details. But good luck finding her, though. She’s left town.

Melinda: Mm. Seems like major trouble in paradise.

Ej: My client has not broken any laws…

Melinda: [Sighs]

Ej: And if you try to file new charges, I’ll just work my magic all over again.

Melinda: Bribe another judge, you mean?

Ej: Additional charges will be a complete waste of your time. Do you want the score to read two to zero?

Melinda: I’ll turn over the money.

Ej: Mm-hmm.

Melinda: Hm. But be prepared to dole it out in civil settlements to the families of drug overdose victims.

[Tense music]


Ej: Let’s hope that doesn’t come to pass, because you and i know that every dollar in that briefcase is mine.

Chad: Well, it’s, uh–it’s good to see you, but I should get out of here. I don’t wanna–I don’t wanna run into gwen, so–

Jack: Oh, I wouldn’t worry about that, I haven’t seen her since last night. Actually, I’m starting to get a little worried.

Chad: Not quick enough.

Jack: Well, there you are.

Gwen: Hello, chad.

Chad: Gwen.

Jack: Where on earth have you been? Super emma just about sleeps in her cape.

Calista: So, what time’s dinner? What’s the dress code for the wedding? And where’s my room?

Bonnie: [Coughing] What room? What room?

Calista: Well, you invited me. I just assumed you’d put me up here.


Bonnie: Oh, I’m sorry, you know, this house is pretty crowded already.

Calista: Really? There must be 35 bedrooms in this place.

Bonnie: You know, I tell you what…

Calista: Huh?

Bonnie: I’m gonna get you a room at the salem inn. You’re gonna love it there, ’cause it’s nice and private.

Calista: Fine. I wouldn’t wanna be any trouble. It was lovely meeting you, justin. I’ll see you two at the wedding, hopefully. [Chuckles]

Justin: Bonnie and I will see you there.

Bonnie: Yes, we will. Hey, I’ll walk you out. Come on.

Calista: Okay.

Bonnie: I’ll get your purse.

Calista: Oh, no, I’ve got it.

Bonnie: I can get it for you.

Calista: Thank you.

Bonnie: Okay. Well, after you. Just go ahead. Be right back, honey.

Calista: Oh–[Giggles] You better come up with that money, bon bon, or you will be staying single.

Bonnie: [Sighs]

Johnny: So, since we didn’t get to have dinner, uh, just tell me what sounds good, and I can ask cook to make it.

Chanel: Thanks, but I’m not that hungry.

Johnny: You haven’t been saying much. Uh, would it have anything to do with that scene allie made?

Chanel: I can’t believe you’re brother and sister.

Johnny: Yeah, but we are. Look, the last couple of days have been a lot of fun, but you having a thing for allie, things just got complicated.

Johnny: For you? Or for me?

[Solemn music]


Tripp: You were pretty quiet on the way over here. Are you upset that chanel is seeing your brother?

Allie: It’s just weird. And I hate to say it, but i really hope it doesn’t last.

Gwen: Well, I, um, went to bed early last night, and, uh, I woke up with the birds, um, and then I had, uh, an early meeting with an employment counselor, and spent the rest of the day walking.

Jack: You didn’t say anything before about an employment counselor.

Gwen: Well, I can’t expect you to keep me on the dole forever.

Chad: What did that counselor say?

Gwen: They said that I would need a reference for my last job. I said that would most likely be a problem.

Chad: Yeah, you were right.

Gwen: Right, well, I’m going to put on a pot of tea. Would anyone like a biscuit or something?

Chad: No.

Jack: Uh, no, nothing– nothing for me, thanks, gwen.

Gwen: Yeah, okay.

Chad: Sorry. Just can’t in good conscience tell an employer that she was a–a good nanny with how things ended.

Jack: I know.

Chad: You’re her–you’re her father. You feel obligated to her. I do not.

Jack: I know, I know. I get it, I get it, I get it, I get it, and I promise you, I will talk to jennifer, and i hope that she can get through to abigail.

Chad: I hope so.

Jack: Abigail loves you. Chad, please, don’t give up on this marriage.

Chad: I don’t intend to.

[Tense music]


Ej: Pleasure doing business with you. I’ll take that briefcase now.

Xander: Not until you’ve got me my old job back at basic black, right?

Ej: Brady’s on a business trip to new york, and nicole’s been out sick all week. When they’re back in the office, I’ll follow up.

Xander: You’re the top man at dimera enterprises. Snap your fingers, you can make this happen.

Ej: I’ve done everything I’ve promised so far.

Xander: Yeah, so far.

Ej: That money belongs to me.

Xander: Your wife paid it to me willingly. And let’s face it, mate, I did you a favor. When I told that room full of people that nicole spent a night in my bed, that got the ball rolling. If nicole hadn’t wanted to get back at sami, you’d still be in the dark and she’d still be cheating on you. Really you should be thanking me.

Ej: And you should be shutting the hell up and handing over that briefcase… right now.

Justin: Calista is quite the character.

Bonnie: [Laughs] Yes. She is.

Justin: I’m surprised you didn’t mention her before.

Bonnie: Well, you know how it goes. Out of sight, out of mind.


Justin: Yeah.

Bonnie: And then when she appeared out of the blue, I just felt like I had to invite her to the wedding. I kinda felt on the spot.

Justin: No, I–I understand that. I’ve had similar experiences with family members, being on the spot, I mean.

Bonnie: Right. Thank you for understanding.

Justin: Mm-hmm.

Bonnie: Oh, uh, dang, I almost forgot.

Justin: What?

Bonnie: The caterer called this afternoon, and it seems they want the whole payment before the wedding, meaning today, and I know you’re busy, so I was just thinking maybe you could just, you know, write a blank check and I’ll fill in the amount later.

Justin: No need to do that. It’s all taken care of.

Bonnie: It is? How?

Justin: Don’t you worry about it. All you have to do is show up looking beautiful, and we can start our new lives together.

Bonnie: I want that life so much.

Justin: Me too. You know, I was just thinking, since your kids can’t make it, it’s kinda great that calista is here, so you’ll have someone from your side of the family.

Bonnie: Oh, yeah. Lucky me. [Chuckles]

Johnny: Look, I don’t care if you kissed allie, as long as you are sure you’re over her.

Chanel: I told you, I was.

Johnny: I hope so. I don’t wanna be in a rivalry over you with my sister.

Chanel: Then we’re good, because allie’s with tripp now. She’s happy, and so am I.

Johnny: Well, then I’m happy too.

Tripp: So, what bothers you about johnny and chanel dating?

Allie: Growing up, he was my best friend. We told each other everything. And now I feel like I don’t even know him. I mean, he was–he was a total jerk tonight.

Tripp: Yeah, he was.

Allie: And chanel’s my best friend. I mean, what if he’s a jerk to her?

Tripp: She can take care of herself.

Allie: Still, I just hope they break it off before it gets serious. What? What’s that look?

Tripp: Chanel told me that they almost slept together last night.

Jack: Thank you, yes. Thank you for the information.

Gwen: Something’s wrong.

Jack: Yeah, yeah, something’s wrong. I just got some news, and I’m– it has me more than a little upset.

Gwen: What? What is it?

Jack: Xander.

Gwen: Oh?

Jack: He hired ej dimera to represent him. Ej has somehow found a way to get a judge to throw his case out. Xander is going to get away with what he did to you. He’s going to walk! Damn it!

Gwen: Jack… jack, it’s okay.

Jack: I’ll tell you what, he better stay the hell away from you, or I promise you it will not be okay.

Xander: Well, I see two options here. You can challenge me to a duel, or make good on the rest of our agreement while I hold onto the briefcase. Then, when I’m back on the payroll at basic black, you’ll get your $1 million back.

Ej: If you try anything in the meantime–

Xander: You know where i live. Salem inn, room 2119. Cheerio.

[Tense music]


[Phone rings]

Calista: Did you get the money?

Bonnie: I tried to con justin into writing a blank check for the caterer, so I could take it to them.

Calista: What do you mean tried?

Bonnie: My heart just wasn’t into it, okay? I–the old hustle failed me.

Calista: That is not what I wanna hear, bonnie.

Bonnie: You know, I was thinking, maybe after the wedding, justin will open up a checking account in my name.

Calista: Like I’m counting on that happening. Like I don’t know that you’re just trying to stall. After you’re married to that guy, I’ll never see my money…

Bonnie: Look, calista, please.

Calista: So I have a better idea.

Bonnie: What’s that?

Calista: I know exactly where you can get a million bucks.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Door opens ]

Steffy: [ Sighs ] You knew how I felt about sheila. You knew that I never wanted her near our son. But yet I walk in here and she’s holding hayes.

Finn: I’m sorry. I– I didn’t invite her. My dad was convinced that if–

Steffy: It doesn’t matter, finn. The moment sheila walked in, you should have called the police. This woman is dangerous. She’s unpredictable. She’s– god, she’s a sociopath. She could’ve kidnapped our son, and we wouldn’t have seen him again. Like, how– how could you do that? How could you put him in harm’s way like that, finn? How could you?

Steffy: I’m gonna protect my son from you, sheila. We’re getting a restraining order, and you’re never gonna see finn, hayes, or me never again!

[ Banging ]

Jack: Why are you still here?

Sheila: Excuse me?

Jack: You swore if you saw finn, held your grandson just once, you’d leave. You got what you wanted. Now go.

Sheila: Oh, it’s just not quite that easy, jack.

Jack: It is. You caused enough trouble.

Sheila: If you’re talking about steffy’s reaction when she saw me holding my grandson–

Jack: She was livid, and she blames me for pushing finn into it.

Sheila: Yeah, well, just her some time. She’llget over it.

Jack: Give her some time? Did you see her, sheila? If you think you’ll get anywhere near hayes again, you will never be a grandmother to finn’s son. Pack your things and leave.

Paris: I’m distracting you.

Zende: That’s my favorite kind of distraction. What?

Paris: Um, just another day at work? [ Laughs ] I’m just wondering how many women have you kissed here at forrester.

Zende: You’re curious about the women I’ve kissed.

Paris: Do you even remember how many?

Zende: I don’t know. Let’s see. There was, um, debbie jarrett.

Paris: Who?

Zende: The first girl I kissed. On the cheek. She was 8, and I was 7. I was a bad boy, paris.

Paris: No, I’m talking, you know, more recently.

Zende: Recently, as in last year?

Paris: Seriously. Okay, you’re a forrester. You’re an attractive, talented designer. You have to know that every girl here has the hots for you, zende. I mean, you gotta tell me, who do you have your eye on?

Zende: You really wanna know?

Paris: Yeah, I really wanna know.

Sheila: I don’t like your tone, jack.

Jack: You’ve caused enough grief for finn and steffy. Li and me, too.

Sheila: I haven’t done anything to your precious li.

Jack: It doesn’t mean you won’t leave this room, go straight to her and tell her everything.

Sheila: About a tryst that we had years ago? That happens.

Jack: Not to me. I love my wife.

Sheila: Yeah, well, I distinctly remember you not getting enough of me. Coming to my place and throwing me up against the wall. You couldn’t get enough.

Jack: That was a lifetime ago.

Sheila: But I vividly remember the night that I told you I was pregnant. Your deepest secret that I have kept all these years: You, finn’s biological father.

Finn: I never would have allowed sheila to take our son.

Steffy: This is our home. This is our safe place, our sanctuary. But it didn’t feel that way anymore because sheila was in here and she was holding our son. That is a huge– a huge violation for me. I asked one thing of you– to care for our son while I was gone. And the one thing I feared the most you allowed to happen. The man I trust. The man who vowed to keep our child safe. The man who said he wasn’t gonna let anyone interfere in our family and our happiness. I mean, those were your words. That’s what you said, finn. You said that.

[ Sighs ] I get that sheila is your biological mother. But I am your wife, and you knew that I would never allow her in here, but you did. Can you please explain that to me?

Hey, it’s me…your skin.

Zende: I like keeping you guessing. It’s fun.

Paris: Yeah, I’m not sure it’s guessing. Oh. You know what? It’s clarice, the new model. She’s hot.

Zende: Oh, she’s bad. But no. I keep thinking about you. Actually, I kind of have this crazy idea.

Paris: Ooh, crazy can be exciting.

Zende: Yes, it can. Why don’t you leave the beach house, come move in with me. We’ll have a lot of fun.

Paris: Yeah, I mean, I’m sure we would. But, you know, I’m actually really having a lot of fun with steffy and finn. It’s so sweet how they connect, and I absolutely adore hayes and kelly and dr. Finn, too. I mean, he’s really something.

Sheila: But because of my feelings for you and then you convincing me that I was in no position to raise a child.

Jack: You weren’T. You said so yourself.

Sheila: You know what? I–I sacrificed for you. No, you and li couldn’t conceive, so I let you raise my son. Li’s the only mother that finn has ever known until now.

Jack: I was never gonna leave my wife for you. You knew that.

Sheila: And you were never gonna tell li that you fathered your son with another woman. So, you know, don’t stand there acting like I’m the only one that’s ever done anything wrong.

Jack: Are you finished?

Sheila: Oh, I’m sure you’d like it if I were, wouldn’t you? Because you don’t like being reminded of what you& have to lose. Your marriage. Your relationship with finn. But that’s what it comes down to. You stand to lose everything if you’re not very careful.

Steffy: Sheila was standing in our home holding our innocent little boy. That never should’ve happened. You should’ve shut your dad down the minute he told you what she wanted.

Finn: I did. He just–he– he kept pushing, and he insisted that I give her this one chance, and if I did, sheila promised that she’d be out of our lives forever. You know, and I know that what’s you wanted.

Steffy: You’re saying you did this for me?

Finn: I thought it would be worth it if you never had to deal with sheila again.

Steffy: That’s what she was counting on. She used it to get access to our son. She manipulated jack, and she manipulated you.

Finn: I guess I just… was hoping that–

Steffy: Hoping what? That she wasn’t the same person who tried to kill my mom, brooke, andmade my grandmother’s life a living hell? Because people like sheila, they don’t change.

Finn: I understand that. Okay? And if sheila wasn’t my birth mother, but… she is. And despite everything that she’s done… deep down, I guess I just– I wanted to see my birth mother one last time.

Steffy: [ Scoffs ]

Certain hpv-related cancers?

Zende: You are, uh, really impressed with finn.

Paris: I mean, he’s an impressive guy. He’s a great dad, a wonderful doctor, a loving and attentive husband. Oh, the way that he treats steffy. I mean, true, he is lucky to have married someone as terrific as her, but she did all right for herself. I mean–I mean, better than all right.

Paris: Finn’s the total package. Not to mention, he’s not a bad-looking package.

Zende: Okay. Just so you know, I did pretty well for myself, too, with you.

Sheila: You know, jack, I’m holding all the cards, and you’d do well to remember that.

Jack: There’s something you need to remember, too. If there isn’t already a restraining order with your name on it, there will be after tonight. So you forced your way into finn’s–

Sheila: I didn’t force my way anywhere.

Jack: Doesn’t matter. You go anywhere near that house, you’ll be behind bars so fast. That’s why you need to walk away, sheila, while you still can.

Sheila: I’ll walk away when I’m ready to walk away, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.

Jack: Damn it, sheila! I am tired of this.

Sheila: You wanna know what I’m tired of? I’m tired of everyone attacking me, jack. You giving me ultimatums and steffy hell-bent on keeping me out of finn and hayes’s lives. She even had the audacity to slap me twice. But since when has violence solved anything?

Steffy: I realize you always wondered about your birth mother. Under normal circumstances, I totally support you gettig to know her. But sheila’s anything but normal.

Finn: That still doesn’t change the fact that she gave birth to me. Or the part of me that… wanted to see her again. I’ll probably never meet my birth father, and today was… my last chance to connect with the woman that brought me into this world. Yeah. I, uh– I went against your wishes and my better judgment. I allowed sheila to hold hayes. Now I see how upset you are and how… betrayed you feel, and… I’m sorry. Steffy, I–I am so sorry.

Sheila: I don’t think you know what this meant to me– to hold our son and our grandson. I gave birth to finn. Even though I let you talk me into giving him up, I don’t know why–

Jack: You make it sound like you were forced into it. That wasn’t how it was.

Sheila: Well, that’s how I felt, jack. That’s how I felt in my heart, losing a child.

Jack: This isn’t getting us anywhere. You’re just delaying the inevitable, and I won’t have that. I now know your history with the forresters. All the cruel and sadistic things you’ve done to them. You shot steffy’s mother, for god sakes. Well, she’s my daughter-in-law now, and finn loves her. I’m not gonna let you put a strain on their marriage, ruin the best thing that’s happened to him in years. So either you keep your promise as you said you’d do, or–

Sheila: Or what, jack? What are you gonna do about it?

Jack: We made a deal. You got to see finn one more time, hold hayes. I came through for you, and guess what. Now you’re gonna come through for me. You will never tell li about our past, and you will never tell anyone how finn was conceived, how he came to be adopted by my wife and me. You will take our little secret to the grave, sheila. You hear me? To the grave.

Steffy: I know you intentionally didn’t go behind my back, inviting sheila over, knowing that I was out of town, but–

Finn: That was my dad. He just–he felt that if she got this one chance– sheila saw me and hayes this one last time– that it would be enough.

Steffy: Nothing is ever enough when it comes to sheila. Telling your father that was just a way for her to get her foot in the door with you and our son, and that’s what really scares me. I’m terrified knowing what she’s gonna do next, what she’s planning, how is she gonna try to contact you.

Finn: That’s not gonna happen.

Steffy: You swore that she would never come near you or our son. She’s never going to be satisfied, finn. She’s not, now that she’s held our son. She’s gonna try to insinuate herself into his life, and I’m not gonna let that happen.

Finn: Neither will I, steffy, ever again.

Steffy: You don’t know all the terrible things this woman has done to me and my family. She deprived me of my mom for years. Like, I think about it often what life would have been like without sheila carter. And to know what my son might go through now that she’s back here, it’s terrifying. Look, I know that she gave birth to you. Well, her blood is in you, and it’s in our innocent little boy. I love you, finn, and I was excited about our future together. But learning that you have this tie to sheila… that she was in our home holding our child… as much it pains me to say this… I can’t even look at you right now. I can’T. Knowing the pain you caused.

Young & The Restless Update

Y&R logo

Recap written by Christine

Abby, Mariah and Devon were all apprehensive when the hospital staff took the baby. Nate explained that he was going to the nursery for a bath and tests, but so far, he seemed healthy. Mariah asked if there was anything she needed to do. Nate urged Mariah to rest. They were all grateful to Nate, but he said the three of them did all the hard work, and he congratulated them and left. Mariah confided how it felt to be snatched off the street by a stranger. She’d been afraid that they would kill her after Bowie was born. Abby seemed caught off guard by the name Bowie. Abby said it sounded awful. Mariah had learned it was Ben all along, and she didn’t understand why he’d do it. Abby explained that Ben had hoped to rescue Mariah and be Abby’s hero.

Mariah stated that Ben, the doctor, listened to her scream. She’d been terrified she’d die, but she was trying not to upset the child she was carrying. She was terrified she’d have to bring Bowie into the world all by herself. She didn’t want Ben to get away with this. Devon said the police would find Ben. Elena came in and asked Devon and Abby to leave, because Mariah could only have two visitors at a time, and there were two more people anxiously waiting to see her. They complied, and Tess rushed in and hugged Mariah tight. Sharon came in too. Sharon called Mariah her brave girl for getting herself and the baby through this. Sharon stepped out to give Tessa and Mariah some time. Tessa told Mariah she loved her and they hugged. They talked about how they felt each other when Mariah was being held captive. “I’m never gonna let you go again,” Tessa said.

Sharon returned and Mariah was sleeping. Tessa wished she could make all Mariah’s suffering go away. Sharon said they’d do all they could to support her. Tessa had to run home and get some stuff for Mariah, and she asked Sharon to sit with her.

Rey and Victor were in the hospital corridor. Rey finished a call, then he told Victor that there was no sign of Ben.

Nate sat with Devon in the waiting room. Devon was grateful Nate had been there to walk them through the baby’s birth. It was really something to see a new life coming into the world. It was a miracle. He felt an instant connection when he held the baby. It made him think about his time with Hilary. He didn’t know if this made sense. Nate said that baby was carrying a part of Devon, and he helped bring him into the world. It made perfect sense.

Abby was surprised to see Victor was still in the hospital. He gave her a Fenmore’s bag. There was a teddy bear in it. He said it reminded him of one Abby used to have when she was a toddler. Abby remembered him – it was named Oodles. She thanked Victor for bringing in his investigators. He said he’d do anything for her. She knew the feeling because she had a baby of her own. He knew she’d have to take care of Mariah and the baby, but he looked forward to his first visit. They said they loved each other. He wanted to see the baby soon, though.

After Victor left, Devon joined Abby. They marveled at the experience they shared. He stated that she wanted a family, and they all joined together to make that perfect little boy. He was grateful things didn’t turn out worse. She was thinking the same thing. Abby said that Devon didn’t just create the baby, he saved the baby’s life, because he trusted his instincts about Ben. Abby said she was too bowled over by Ben’s kindness to see what was happening until it was too late. He didn’t think she should blame herself. No one could’ve predicted Ben would do something like this. He noted that she was the one who came through and found Mariah. He felt that the three of them kept the baby safe.

In the waiting room, Tessa thanked Devon and Abby for bringing Mariah home to her. Devon said they didn’t need thanks. They loved Mariah. Tessa wanted to go to the chapel to say thank you for answering her prayers. After Tessa left, Abby mentioned that she wanted to see Mariah. Devon didn’t mind her taking the second visitor spot. He was going to call Lily and let her know what happened. He wished Neil was here to see the baby. She had no doubt that Neil was with them and he was smiling on their perfect little boy.

Abby sat with the sleeping Mariah. Sharon was out of the room. Abby was heartbroken that she had no way of letting Chance know he was a dad, like he’d always wanted to be.

Elena and Nate were at Crimson Lights. He couldn’t get over the fact that he’d coached his cousin through childbirth. He thought it had a profound experience on Devon, and he believed it hit Devon in a way he didn’t expect. Elena assumed that was because of the baby he lost with Hilary. He said Devon had a deep meaningful bond with the baby. She was happy for Devon. They agreed that the baby was lucky to have Devon in his life. He was impressed Mariah, Devon and Abby kept their heads together. Elena was proud of Nate.

Elena went back to work, and she took Baby Newman to Abby for a feeding. Mariah was planning to pump, but since she was sleeping, Elena brought a bottle of formula. Abby took her child and marveled that he was the most amazing baby in the world. Devon walked up and overheard Abby bonding with the baby. She said she’d waited her entire life for him. Mariah woke up when Abby said “Mommy’s here.” Mariah looked upset.

At Society, Sally and Chloe video chatted Chelsea. It was Sally and Chelsea’s first time meeting. Sally stated that she’d followed Chelsea’s work for years, and she proved this point by sharing her thoughts on every clothing line Chelsea once worked on. Sally was honored to be working with Chelsea. “And I would consider it a miracle if you came up for air,” Chelsea replied, commenting on the length of Sally’s monologue. Chloe was shocked when Chelsea said she wasn’t sure she was taking the position. Chloe protested that she accepted Adam’s job offer to work with Chelsea. Chelsea appreciated Chloe’s hard wok on the platform, but she couldn’t commit yet.

Chelsea called Adam, who was at work. They chatted about Anita, who was on the mend, and Connor, who was home from camp and looking forward to school starting. She thanked him for maintaining structure for Connor while she found her footing. Adam wanted Connor and Chelsea to be in each other’s lives. She thought he sounded like he meant that. The other reason Chelsea called was to talk about Sally. He asked what she thought of the new hire. Chelsea heard about Sally’s track record with jobs. She understood that Chloe saw something in her and Chelsea could relate to needing a chance. However, she talked to Sally for less than a minute and she could already see Sally was a master manipulator with a lack of scruples. She knew he gave Chloe free reign, but Sally deserved a second look. He said not to worry because he was keeping an eye on everything.

Nick met Phyllis at The Grand Phoenix. She was sorry she missed his lunch invitation, but she’d been tied up. Nick said Sally told him Phyllis was with Jack. Phyllis complained about Sally antagonizing her. Nick knew Sally was trying to get back at Phyllis for uncovering her scheme. Nick wanted to forget about Sally for a moment. He asked if Phyllis would be tempted to get back together with Jack if Nick wasn’t in the picture. She didn’t want to answer his weird hypothetical. He said he was just trying to have an honest conversation. She said Nick was in the picture, and she loved him. She didn’t know where this was coming from. She thought it’d be like asking if he’d be with Sharon if Phyllis weren’t in the picture. He was just curious, and he asked her to humor him, so she said Jack was just a friend. She asked if he was threatened by Jack, and he said of course not. He was confident in their relationship. She was glad, because she was a one man woman, and Nick was the man for her.

Nick didn’t mean to make Phyllis uncomfortable. Phyllis thought about how difficult it must be for Victoria to be in love with someone who didn’t have a lot of time while dealing with interfering relatives. Nick wished he could trust Victoria’s instincts, but he couldn’t shake the feeling that Ashland wasn’t trustworthy. Phyllis thought it was beautiful for Nick to worry about his sister, and she couldn’t judge him for running interference. Victor called Nick to let him know he was an uncle again. Nick asked about Mariah, and Victor said she was fine. Nick wanted to visit, but Victor asked him to hold off because everyone needed their rest.

Phyllis ran into Sally at Society. “You stay away from my man,” Phyllis warned. Sally called Phyllis insecure. She couldn’t remember the last time she saw Nick. She then remembered that she saw him planning a romantic surprise, but Phyllis had been too busy fawning over Jack. Phyllis said she and Jack were in the past. Sally thought it’d be healthier for Sally and Jack to move on, because this seemed inappropriate. Phyllis said it wasn’t a good idea for Sally to try and retaliate against her. “Haven’t you had enough,” Phyllis asked. “I’m still here aren’t I,” Sally replied.

Phyllis called Sally full of herself. Sally thought she had a right to be since she landed on her feet after Phyllis attempted to ruin her life. Phyllis scoffed and called Sally delusional. She was sure that Chloe would cut Sally off when she did something underhanded. Sally said Chloe knew how valuable she was. Sally felt that she had an opportunity to make a name for herself on a fashion platform that was part of a powerhouse media company. She said she and Adam really got each other. Phyllis doubled over laughing. She said karma was going to take Sally out. Sally was sure that Phyllis would be proven wrong. Phyllis told Sally to get out of her life. Phyllis said if Sally even mentioned her name, her stay in this town would come to an abrupt end.

Nick ran into Adam at Crimson Lights and told him about their new nephew. He thought Christian would be excited. Adam asked Nick’s take on Victoria and Locke. Nick said Victoria seemed happy, and that was all he cared about. Adam asked how much they knew about Ashland. Nick had been asking himself the same question. Sally walked in and said hi to the brothers. Nick walked away without acknowledging her. Adam commented on that, and Sally said Nick was still mad about the whole Summer thing. Sally wasn’t worried about that though, because she loved a challenge. Sally said she was inspired by Adam’s advice to focus on making a name for herself instead of Phyllis. He reacted with mock dread, asking what he’d unleashed. She told him to be afraid, very afraid. She promised it was something that would be good for the company. He hoped she’d abandoned seeking revenge on Phyllis. Chloe walked in and said they had too much to achieve to waste time on personal vendettas. Adam agreed, and he said tomorrow was the official public launch of Newman Media, and they had to be ready to hit the ground running. He suggested they come in early tomorrow. He left.

Chloe didn’t agree with Sally telling Adam she wanted to get revenge on Phyllis. Sally said she’d promised Adam that she’d channel her energy into Newman. She wouldn’t blow this rare opportunity. She sensed that Chelsea wasn’t on board with Sally’s involvement. Chloe said that Chelsea took awhile to get used to people. Chloe wasn’t going to let Chelsea back out of this.

Chloe got on video with Chelsea after Sally left. Chelsea had reservations about Sally. She’d heard some things. Chloe said Sally heard some things about them too, but Sally talented, motivated and hungry. Chelsea wasn’t sure. Chloe implored Chelsea to come home. She could only hold the position open for so long, and if Chelsea didn’t take it, they might be forced to move on without her.

Sally showed up at Adam’s office with something to show him. He said he left the fashion decisions up to Chloe, but she suggested that she wanted his opinion anyway. She thought this thing she’d worked on would be perfect for the launch. He looked at her work, and he liked it. He thought she really was talented, and he said they’d definitely use her creation. He wanted to know what she planned to do to make a name for herself. She still wouldn’t say, but she told him to remember the word “Spectacular.” He was determined to get this out of her. He asked her to accompany him to the launch party tomorrow. “We’ll see,” she replied.

Interview with Jeff Daniels and Maura Tierney

TV Interview!


"American Rust" cast

Interview with Jeff Daniels, Maura Tierney, Bill Camp, David Alvarez, Alex Neustaedter, Julia Mayorga, Mark Pellegrino, Rob Yang (he/him) and showrunner/EP Dan Futterman of “American Rust” on Showtime by Suzanne 8/24/21

This is such a talented cast. We usually only get one question, at most, for these TV Critics Association press panels, so I was very torn about whom to ask a question. Thankfully, I was able to ask questions of Jeff Daniels and Maura Tierney, and then later, David Alvarez, so I was ecstatic. I asked Jeff about the motivations behind what his character, Del, does, in the first episode, to cover up for Grace’s son, who appears to have murdered someone.  Then I asked Maura a rather lame question about being in a triangle between him and Mark Pellegrino’s character (Virgil). She gave it a much better answer than it deserved. Then I asked David about his character, who is a little away from what the others are doing, since his character, Isaac, wanders around town a bit. However, he’s quite important to the story. He did the best he could, not wanting to share spoilers.

I hope you can watch this show, which is based on a best-selling novel…it has really good writing and acting. It’s a little dark and slow, so I hope that doesn’t disappoint anyone.

The TCA doesn’t allow us to take photos, recordings, etc. but here’s my article:

: “American Rust” Premieres on SHOWTIME: A Complicated Family Drama and Murder Mystery

On Sunday, September 12th, SHOWTIME is set to premiere its latest compelling drama series, “American Rust.” This intricately woven tale of family, crime, and the American Dream boasts a stellar ensemble cast and promises to captivate viewers from the very first episode.

“American Rust” is a gripping narrative anchored by the exceptional performances of Jeff Daniels, Maura Tierney, Bill Camp, David Alvarez, Alex Neustaedter, Julia Mayorga, Mark Pellegrino, and Rob Yang. Showrunner and executive producer Dan Futterman has masterfully adapted Philipp Meyer’s novel into a riveting television experience.

As the premiere date draws near, the cast and creative team gathered for a panel discussion to offer insights into the series and the unique challenges they faced during production.

A Year of Reflection and Adaptation

During the panel discussion, Dan Futterman shed light on how the COVID-19 pandemic affected the production of “American Rust.” He shared that after a table read, the production had to be shut down temporarily. The yearlong delay provided a unique opportunity to refine the scripts, making them more efficient and practical for shooting under pandemic-related restrictions.

“We did lots of cutting of extraneous scenes,” Futterman explained. “You end up doing more of that in the editing room. But it was helpful to be able to do that up front.”

While the core story remained intact, the pandemic-induced hiatus allowed the team to streamline the narrative, ensuring it would be feasible to shoot given the constraints imposed by the ongoing health crisis.

Jeff Daniels: The Complexity of Del Harris

Jeff Daniels, who plays the central character, Del Harris, discussed the complexities of his role. Del is a character grappling with contradictions, a man of honor who struggles with addiction and often takes on the roles of cop, judge, and jury when under the influence of narcotics.

Daniels emphasized the character’s duality, saying, “A lot of what we’re going for in this is real people, their good and their bad, their strong and their weak. Just like people in real life.”

He also pointed out that Del’s commitment to the rule of law and his desire to do the right thing in a world where that is often challenged by circumstances sets him apart from other characters.

Comparing Del to Atticus Finch

When asked if Del could be compared to Atticus Finch, another iconic character he portrayed in “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Daniels drew a parallel between the two but highlighted a crucial difference.

“Only in — much like Jim Comey, the three of them believed in the rule of law, believed in right and wrong, telling the truth. That’s where Del kind of veers off. He kind of fudges that. So that’s kind of where it ends,” Daniels noted.

He went on to emphasize that, despite the challenges Del faces, his commitment to doing the right thing remains a central aspect of his character.

The Challenge of Doing the Right Thing

Continuing the discussion on doing the right thing, Daniels remarked, “I guess you’ve got to fight for that nowadays. I guess you might not — maybe right doesn’t matter anymore. Maybe truth doesn’t matter. Maybe facts don’t matter. All the things that we’ve been living with for the last four or five years.”

Del’s unwavering commitment to the law and decency in a world where these values are often questioned or compromised is a defining characteristic that sets him apart as a character.

Navigating the Perils of Young Adulthood

David Alvarez, Alex Neustaedter, and Julia Mayorga, who play younger characters in “American Rust,” discussed the challenges their characters face as young adults. They emphasized that the series reflects the idea that young people’s lives can quickly take unexpected turns, highlighting the precariousness of youth and the potential long-term consequences of their actions.

Alvarez noted, “Each decision we make throughout the season is really important. It will impact the rest of our story and our journey and who we become as people.”

Mayorga added, “It follows you, and you can’t get rid of it. Maybe the truth comes out. It’s just difficult. I think you have to be mindful, even this young, of what we do.”

The younger cast members explored the theme of mistakes and their enduring impact, emphasizing that in today’s world, actions have consequences, and being mindful of one’s choices is crucial.

Jeff Daniels: Transitioning to Television

Jeff Daniels, known for his illustrious career in theater and film, addressed his transition to television over the past decade. He attributed this shift to the evolution of television and the opportunities it now offers actors.

“The honest answer is Jim Gandolfini made it happen,” Daniels said. He explained how cable networks like SHOWTIME, HBO, and streaming platforms have transformed the landscape of television, providing actors with diverse and challenging roles.

He also emphasized that television has allowed actors to delve deeper into their characters over the course of a series, an opportunity not always available in film.

A Riveting and Timely Drama

“American Rust” is a multifaceted drama that delves into the complexities of family, justice, and the American Dream. With its talented cast, compelling storytelling, and timely themes, the series promises to be a standout addition to SHOWTIME’s lineup.

As viewers prepare to embark on this journey through the rust belt of America, they can expect a gripping narrative that raises profound questions about morality, responsibility, and the pursuit of justice in a world where the lines between right and wrong are often blurred.

“American Rust” premieres on SHOWTIME on Sunday, September 12th, and is set to be a must-watch series for fans of compelling drama and thought-provoking storytelling.

    National Distribution of Tribeca Festival Films Advance Black Stories from Black Storytellers
    Originally debuted at the Tribeca Festival, four new 8:46 Films are the latest installment of P&G’s Widen The Screen initiative, an effort to improve the portrayal of Black life on screen and expand inclusion efforts for Black creators behind the camera, to challenge expectations and remove limiting stereotypes in film, advertising and media.
    8:46 Films is a collaboration with SATURDAY MORNING, a collective of Black creative executives, Tribeca Studios and P&G. Four inspirational stories told in the length of time it took to take George Floyd’s life – and accelerate a movement that would change the world. Filmmakers Zoey Martinson, Camrus Johnson, Gibrey Allen and Marshall Tyler were inspired to take 8 minutes and 46 seconds instead to tell stories of joy, love, and resilience, fuel the creativity that has always upheld the Black community in the darkest times, and build a legacy of hope.

    Daughter Emma Murray Tells Correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti: “He Was Framed”
    Chad Daybell and his wife, Lori Vallow Daybell, have been charged with murdering her children, JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan, then burying them on Daybell’s property just outside of Rexburg, Idaho. Now, in their first television interview together, Chad Daybell’s children defend their dad in an all-new 48 HOURS, “The Secrets of Chad Daybell’s Backyard,” to be broadcast Wednesday, Sept. 1 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streamed on Paramount +.
    “My father needs someone to be a voice for him,” Emma Murray tells correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti. “To let people know what’s real, what we know.”
    The disappearance of JJ and Tylee gripped the nation. First, police said the children disappeared in September 2019, shortly after the family moved to Rexburg, Idaho, from Arizona. Investigators say Tylee was last seen in Yellowstone National Park with her family on Sept. 8, 2019. Investigators say JJ vanished on Sept. 23, 2019. Throughout, Chad and Lori Vallow Daybell refused to talk with investigators or say where the children were. Then, in June 2020, the bodies of JJ and Tylee were found in shallow graves on Chad Daybell’s property.
    Chad Daybell has pleaded not guilty to the murder charges. Lori Vallow Daybell has been found incompetent to stand trial and proceedings against her have been suspended. She has not yet entered a plea to these charges.
    Asked whether Chad Daybell played any role in the murders of JJ and Tylee, his children say no.
    “It’s completely unthinkable,” says Leah Murphy.
    The investigation into the disappearance and murders of JJ and Tylee opens up a bizarre tale of twisted relationships; the changing personality of the mom; hints of doomsday beliefs; eyewitness accounts that Lori Vallow Daybell believed JJ had become a zombie; talks of cults; and the suspicious deaths of two ex-spouses.
    Prosecutors say law enforcement was led to search Daybell’s property because cellphone data from Alex Cox’s phone put him there for two hours the day after Tylee was last seen. Cox is Lori Vallow Daybell’s brother.
    Mark, Leah, Seth, Garth and Emma tell Vigliotti they’re speaking out together for the first time because the public has only heard one side of the story. They want to tell his story, how they believe JJ and Tylee’s remains ended up in their father’s backyard, and why they believe he did not do it. They believe he was lured into a web of murder and deceit.
    “He was framed,” says Emma Murray. “This is his property. If there’s bodies buried here, it would be attributed to him.”
    “Who framed your father?” Vigliotti asks.
    “I think it’s pretty clear it was Lori and Alex,” Emma Murray says. “Alex came … and left for periods of time. …We don’t know… what exactly he was doing.”
    Murray believes her father was fooled by Vallow and Cox in the “most deadly way possible.”
    Murray walks with Vigliotti along the property where the bodies were found and recalls the day their father was arrested. Investigators found Tylee’s body in the pet cemetery, near where Cox’s phone data placed him. JJ’s remains were found about 50 yards away in a shallow grave.
    “If he didn’t kill them, then why were their bodies found in your father’s backyard?” Vigliotti asks.
    “I don’t know why they would be there,” Emma Murray says. “But I do know that if he were to commit a crime, he wouldn’t be foolish enough to put the evidence in his own backyard.”
    That the children were buried in shallow graves, Daybell’s kids say, points a finger away from their dad, who worked as a gravedigger.
    “He knew how to dig graves and – that just doesn’t sound believable to me,” says Seth Daybell.
    The siblings also say there was never any talk of zombies or cults in their family.
    “He never said a thing to us about zombies,” Garth Daybell says. “The first we ever heard of it was in a news report.”
    48 HOURS and Vigliotti explore the lives of Chad and Lori Vallow Daybell, what happened to JJ and Tylee, and the investigation into their murders. 48 HOURS: “The Secrets of Chad Daybell’s Backyard” is produced by Liza Finley. Greg Fisher is the development producer. Ruth Chenetz and Richard Fetzer are producers. Mead Stone is the producer-editor.

    Airing 9/4/21 (Sa.) (9:00 PM) “48 HOURS” TRUE CRIME SATURDAY DOUBLE FEATURE
    9:00 PM – 48 HOURS: “The Suspicious Death of Christian Andreacchio” – Correspondent Peter Van Sant and 48 HOURS investigate the death of Christian Andreacchio, a young Mississippi man, and new information uncovered by 48 HOURS that gave his family hope in their search for justice, in an encore of “The Suspicious Death of Christian Andreacchio” to be broadcast Saturday, Sept. 4 (9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streamed on. Paramount+. Police say he was found shot dead in the bathroom of his apartment in Meridian, Miss., by his live-in girlfriend, Whitley Goodman, and his friend Dylan Swearingen on Feb. 26, 2014. Swearingen told police Andreacchio was acting erratically before he died. According to a police report, Swearingen said Andreacchio threatened to shoot himself, telling Goodman to tell him that she loved him, before Swearingen intervened and took the gun from him. Swearingen told police he later gave the gun back after Andreacchio calmed down. Investigators ruled his death a suicide. However, his family didn’t believe he would take his own life. A grand jury heard the case in 2017 and did not indict Goodman and Swearingen. Their mothers tell Peter Van Sant their children are innocent. In reporting the story, the 48 HOURS team discovered a key report in the case was not presented to the grand jury in 2017. When told of the discovery by 48 HOURS, prosecutor Kassie Coleman said she was willing to reconvene a grand jury. Coleman acknowledges the Andreacchio family doesn’t trust her to present the case. A request to find a new prosecutor is pending in court. PREVIEW
    10:00 PM – 48 HOURS: “The Tara Grinstead Mystery” – 48 HOURS and Peter Van Sant investigate the disappearance of Tara Grinstead, a Georgia teacher and former beauty queen who seemingly vanished overnight in October 2005, in an encore of “The Tara Grinstead Mystery” to be broadcast Saturday, Sept. 4 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streamed on Paramount+. The 48 HOURS report details how the small town of Ocilla, Ga., has been consumed with suspicion and theories about the disappearance of Grinstead. On the morning of Oct. 22, 2005, Grinstead helped some teens prepare for a local beauty pageant. She later went to a cookout and was last seen heading home. For years the case was a mystery – even when people who said they knew something began to talk. Nearly 12 years would pass after Grinstead’s disappearance before the case was broken open by a surprising confession – but recent revelations indicate local law enforcement and state investigators may have had information that could have solved the case soon after she vanished. John McCullough, who maintains he tried to get investigators a key tip in 2007 that could have cracked the case, speaks out on television for the first time on 48 HOURS. Now, Grinstead’s friends and family may learn what really happened to her. PREVIEW

Sharon: [ Sighs ] That was a nice walk, huh? Thanks for going with me. It’s so nice just to have someone who understands exactly what I’m going through.

Tessa: You helped me, too.

Sharon: You know, if Mariah were here right now, she’d probably crack a joke about the heavy-duty bonding we’re doing over how much we love her.

Mariah: [ Breathing heavily ] [ Groaning ] Ohh, that was — that was really strong for such a little guy. Which probably means that we’re gonna be meeting face to face pretty soon.
[ Exhales ] Which is good because, according to Mr. Clock over there, we’ve still got some time to kill.
[ Exhales ] Which gives the maniac who’s had us trapped in here for weeks now time to do the right thing. Take me to a hospital, please! You don’t want to be responsible if something goes horribly wrong, do you?
[ Breathing heavily ] Oh, don’t worry, don’t worry, Bowie. Just kidding. I was just trying to inflict some guilt. Everything’s gonna be fine. Everything’s gonna be fine.

Abby: I hate even thinking about Stitch this way.

Victor: So do I. God forbid, but listen, as a parent, you must consider all possibilities.

Abby: What, and be suspicious of everyone around me, even people close to me?

Victor: Sweetheart, you can’t pay attention to people’s feelings. You can’t worry about that, not when it comes to the security of your child.

Mariah (talking to the baby): Ohh. Okay. I got to talk to you now, alright? I didn’t think that any of this would happen. When this all started out, I was trying to help Abby and Chance. Then after I got pregnant, the morning sickness — oh, god. [Laughs] I don’t know what it was, dude, about the smell of my shampoo or peaches. But you made my life miserable for a little while, you know that? And I was really worried that this was gonna be really difficult [Panting] Until you were born. And after I got trapped in here, I just… I started to see things completely differently. [Exhales shakily] You kept me sane. Mm! And I really hope I did the same for you. So I want to let you know now — okay — that you are loved. Yeah. You are, so much. And I promise you, I don’t throw around that term lightly. Not like other people do. You don’t know this, but I didn’t grow up with a lot of love, so…I was pretty bad at it. And even now, there’s only a handful of people that I truly love in this world. You’re one of them, okay? And you’re gonna be fine. Gonna be fine. Because I protect the people I love with my life.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Rey: Devon, will you call mariah’s cellphone again?

Devon: Absolutely.

[ Cellphone rings ] There it is. That’s her damn case. That’s it.

Rey: Wow.

Victor: So stitch is the one who kidnapped mariah.

Devon: That’s right. Can you believe how crazy he is? He’s literally been pretending to be here for weeks now, texting us.

Victor: Yeah, as soon as he steps foot in the hotel, he’ll be arrested, right?

Rey: My number-one goal is to find mariah, but we still don’t know where she is.

Devon: You know what we need to do, guys? We need to call abby, ’cause she could be in danger right now.

Victor: I agree with you.

Abby: Please just tell me where they are. I promise I won’t hold it against you. I swear.

Stitch: Are you talking about mariah? Why would I know where she is?

[ Cellphone rings ] I can’t believe you even thought that, much less said it out loud. I’m gonna go.

Abby: No, no, no, no, please! Please you can’t leave like this. Stay, even if it’s only to tell me how wrong I am.

Sharon: [ Sighs ] That was a nice walk, huh? Thanks for going with me. It’s so nice just to have someone who understands exactly what I’m going through.

Tessa: You helped me, too.

Sharon: You know, if mariah were here right now, she’d probably crack a joke about the heavy-duty bonding we’re doing over how much we love her.

Tessa: [ Laughs ]

[ Cellphone chimes ] Is it abby?

Sharon: No, it’s rey.

Tessa: What does the text say?

Sharon: The police were able to break through the block on mariah’s phone. Wait, there’s more. He’s still texting. They tracked its location.

Tessa: To where?

Sharon: The grand phoenix.

Tessa: Okay, what does that mean, that she’s still in town? That’s where the kidnapper’s keeping her?

[ Cellphone chimes ] Could she be that close by?

Sharon: Hold on, there’s more. They found mariah’s phone in stitch’s room.

Mariah: [ Breathing heavily ]

[ Groaning ] Ohh, that was — that was really strong for such a little guy. Which probably means that we’re gonna be meeting face to face pretty soon.

[ Exhales ] Which is good because, according to mr. Clock over there, we’ve still got some time to kill.

[ Exhales ] Which gives the maniac who’s had us trapped in her for weeks now time to do the right thing. Take me to a hospital, please! You don’t want to be responsible if something goes horribly wrong, do you?

[ Breathing heavily ] Oh, don’t worry, don’t worry, bowie. Just kidding. I was just trying to inflict some guilt. Everything’s gonna be fine. Everything’s gonna be fine.

[ Breathing heavily ] What was with all the prenatal vitamins and the protein bars if you were just gonna abandon us now? Ohh. Maybe — maybe they went to call somebody. Maybe they went to get help. Somebody’ll be here any minute. Maybe they went to go get diapers or something, I don’t know. They know that we’re in labor. Somebody’s gonna be here any minute. Right? You can’t just abandon us now. They wouldn’t leave us to do this all alone, would they? Somebody can’t be that cruel, right? A lot of people think dealing with copd

Stitch: This is unreal. You — you just told me what a good friend I’ve been.

Abby: You have.

Stitch: I’ve done my best to be there for you.

Abby: And I just want you to know how much I appreciate everything that you’ve done.

Stitch: Then how could you accuse me of doing something so horrible?

Abby: I’m just worried. I’m just worried about my friend and my baby. I just — I want to find them.

Stitch: And I want to help you do that.

Abby: For the sake of the baby that we lost.

Stitch: Uh —

Abby: Ben, I want to help you, too. I know — I know you have been through hell. You have lost so much.

Stitch: I — I shouldn’t have said anything, alright? That was stupid for me to admit that.

Abby: I’m glad that you did. It’s so hard to admit something like that. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone goes through a hard time.

Stitch: I didn’t expect for you to take it the way you did, okay? You’re jumping to the wrong conclusion.

Abby: I’m sorry if I did that.

Stitch: If? After everything I just said, you’re still wondering if I had anything to do with mariah’s disappearance?

Abby: I mean, can’t you understand why I would — i would have some pause? Mariah went missing right after you came back to town. And you said you had that position at memorial when you really didn’T. And you were telling me about that little notebook — mariah’s notebook with the storks on it.

Stitch: No, no, that was — that was someone else. That was the older guy in the store. Okay, he — he’s the one who had that paper.

Abby: I’m sorry. I don’t know if I believe your story anymore.

[ Sniffles ] I think you were just trying to tell me those things because you saw me falling apart, and then you added — you added the notebook because it was more convincing. You made me believe we were on the right track, and I believed it for a minute, but then when i stepped back and I looked at the whole picture…

[ Cellphone rings ]

Stitch: It’s devon. I… I asked him to stay in touch. Wait. Does he think I did this, too?

Rey: That’s right, and an apb. If anybody sees him or gets any credible leads, I want to be the first to know.

Victor: I will let you know of any further developments, okay? And by the way, do me a favor, I’ve been trying to get ahold of abby. I wasn’t able to, so give her a call, okay?

Devon: I just got his voicemail again.

Rey: Alright, you know what to say.

Devon: Hey, stitch. This is devon hamilton. I was just calling ’cause i wanted to run some ideas by you on how we could help abby. Give me a call when you get a chance. I’d really appreciate it. Alright. That guy’s not gonna call me back. Even though he told me to reach out to him if she needs any help, but I don’t believe a damn word he says.

Rey: Do either one of you know why stitch would kidnap mariah? I mean, was it about abby’s baby? Or does it have to do with taking revenge on abby, maybe because of the divorce? Or is he in love with abby? Is he jealous?

Victor: I think the latter is the case. I really do. If it had been up to stitch, he would have had a life with abby now, if it hadn’t have been for his son.

Rey: Right. Stitch’s son is the one who caused the accident that resulted in abby’s miscarriage.

Devon: Yeah, except it wasn’t an accident. He did it on purpose.

Victor: You know that, right? Apparently, the son placed a tripwire on the stairs in the athletic club. Abby had her shower. When she was descending the stairs, she tripped over the damn wire and fell. Lost the baby. It apparently was so bad that she can now not carry a baby to term because of the scar tissue.

Rey: Wow. That must have been devastating for both of them. That’s what led to the divorce?

Victor: I have a feeling it contributed to it, yeah.

Rey: Is there anything else you can tell me about them?

Devon: I mean, just that, you know, he showed up out of nowhere and started spending a lot of time with abby, trying to be really supportive and, you know, super helpful.

Rey: Right, he shared that story about finding the alleged kidnapper in the convenience store.

Devon: Yeah.

Rey: And seemed super excited when that tip would have been the turning point for the case.

Victor: Well, he probably thought that he would earn her undying gratitude.

Rey: Yeah. I’ve seen this dynamic in other criminal cases. You read a lot about it in arson investigations.

Devon: Like when a firefighter will start the fire so he can show up and save the day?

Rey: Exactly. Now, the bright side is, if this is the case, then there’s a decent chance that stitch is taking good care of mariah. He’s got to be the good guy here, and his story has to have a happy ending brought out by his own heroics.

Victor: You know, the hardest thing for me is to put around the fact that stitch is involved in this. I mean, I respected the guy. Used to spar with him. He’s a great guy. What the hell happened to him? Obviously, became totally unhinged. To do this? Who the hell knows what he’s up to now? Feeling stressed in your skin?

Abby: Mariah’s friends are just worried about her because she’s so kind and caring. I mean, look what she’s doing for me. She’s carrying my baby, and that’s — that’s just one example.

Stitch: People want to do nice things for you, abby. They gravitate towards you. You’re a light in a very dark world.

Abby: And your world has been dark lately?

Stitch: I didn’t mean to bring that up.

Abby: No, please. Ben, just — just talk to me. I mean, you said you came here for redemption.

Stitch: I don’t think I can explain it to you. You’re anchored here. Genoa city, it — it’s in your blood.

Abby: Yeah, it’s my home.

Stitch: To me, it’s something else. Represents a time in my life when I still had hope. At first, when I came back, i just — I just wanted to remember that feeling. I had lived so long without it, you know?

Abby: [ Sniffles ]

Stitch: Like nothing good would ever happen for me. And then…I wanted to feel hopeful again. Like anything was possible. I needed to find a way back to my past.

Abby: Your past with me.

Stitch: I know I don’t have any right to expect that. To expect that from you. I was…lucky to share a life with you once. It was magic, but I didn’t — I didn’t protect you. I didn’t protect you and i couldn’t hold onto it.

Abby: Stop, okay? Just stop. What happened between us, it wasn’t your fault. And if I ever said that, I am so sorry. I didn’t mean that. That was just my pain and my grief talking.

Stitch: Maybe you get it, then. Because that’S… that’s what I’m going through right now. The pain. I’m out of my head.

Tessa: Why don’t you just give rey a call and see what the latest is, if there’s been any progress?

Sharon: [ Sighs ] You know I want to, but rey said for us to just sit tight. He will call as soon as he knows anything more. He knows how anxious we are.

Tessa: The waiting is killing me. We still don’t know where mariah is. She could be just around the corner. If it really was stitch —

Sharon: I’m really having a hard time believing that it was. I’ve known this man for years. I mean, he was dylan’s best friend. And the man that I knew would never be involved in anything like this, so I just don’t want to jump to conclusions right now. Maybe mariah’s phone was planted in his room.

Tessa: What I can’t get out of my mind — he was there. When we talked about mariah, when we shared how worried we were, wondered who might have her. He was listening to our deepest fears. He was there. When we talked about tricking the kidnapper into thinking that we thought that she was just taking a break.

Sharon: Yeah, he was. But that still doesn’t prove anything.

Tessa: Don’t you see? If stitch is the kidnapper, he was always one step ahead of us because he — we told him exactly what we were gonna do.

Victor: Yes, you do the same. Okay.

Rey: Victor, I’m gonna have to head out, too, so please don’t try to be a hero. If your team finds stitch first, I want to be the first to know. Okay, I don’t need you taking the law into your own hands.

Victor: Rey, the same goes for you, alright? If the gcpd should find out where the bloody bastard is, you let me know right away. Is that clear?

Rey: Yes, I promise I will keep you posted.

Victor: Thank you.

Rey: Okay.

Devon: Okay, so, hey, my pi denise just found something out. Stitch wasn’t in iowa city when he said he was.

Rey: So that probably means that stitch never left town. He might be doing this all on his own, taking care of mariah all by himself. You know what I’m gonna do?

Devon: Hmm.

Rey: I am gonna run a check on his credit cards, see if we can find a pattern. We can see where he goes, shops, what he buys. Could be a pretty damn good place to start looking for her.

Devon: Okay.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Rey: Yeah, kevin? Really? You sure? Okay, thank you, man. Yeah, yeah, I owe you.

Devon: What’d he say?

Rey: Kevin was able to retrieve a glitch-free version of the security footage from the convenience store that stitch said he went to. And it doesn’t line up with the story that stitch tried to sell us.

Devon: Oh, I bet it doesn’T. Let me guess, there was no old man buying protein bars, right?

Rey: Bingo.

Devon: My question is, why would stitch go through the trouble of making up something like that, knowing that we’re gonna look into it and you’re gonna investigate?

Rey: You know what? We were lucky enough to find footage in the first place. Most store would’ve recorded over the footage by now. The fact of the matter is, is that stitch lied again, and all the evidence is pointing directly at him.

Devon: Right, but it’s not pointing to where he is or where he’s keeping mariah.

Mariah: Okay, bowie. I got to talk to you before things get challenging. And by “challenging,” I mean off-the-charts painful.

[ Exhales sharply ] It doesn’t look like there’s gonna be much of a welcome wagon for you, okay? It’s just gonna be me. But that’s okay, alright? It’s fine. Women have been doing this do-it-yourself childbirth for thousands of years. Way before there were doctors or hospitals.

[ Sniffles ] Ohh. Oh!

[ Groaning ] Back when all you had were just friends. Or your mom.

[ Sniffles ] Or someone who really loved you to help you face this incredibly scary thing.

[ Groans ] Okay, I’m not gonna think about that now. Oh! Not gonna think about that now.

[ Sighs ] We have towels. We have hot water. I don’t — I don’t really know what that’s for, but they’re always saying “boil hot water” in the movies, so there it is. I’m as ready as I can be. Oh, god. Okay, another contraction any second.

[ Groaning ] Please help us. Please.

[ Sniffles ] If anybody’s listening, please help. Oh!

[ Groaning ] Ohh! Ahh! Ahh!

[ Groaning ]

Feel the cool rush of

claritin cool mint chewables.

Abby: Ben, I am — I am so sorry that you’ve been so unhappy. I can’t imagine what that must feel like. To feel like things are never gonna get better, I mean, that would drive anyone to do desperate things.

Stitch: Unforgivable things.

Abby: No. No, that’s not true. I would never judge you. And I don’t want anything bad to happen to you. You would never hurt anyone.

Stitch: Because you know me. The real me.

Abby: Yeah, just like you know me. And you knew every time I was upset about mariah, you would — you would come — you would come for me. And you would say everything’s gonna be alright, and you know what? You made me believe that. But that’s because you had a different view. Because you knew mariah was fine. And you knew she was gonna come home. That was your plan, right?

Stitch: Yeah.

Abby: You know what? Um… I — I think this is good. I think this is good that this is all coming out.

Stitch: I didn’t mean for it to get this far.

Abby: I know. But you know what? Look, I can — I can help you.

Stitch: I was — I was go– I was gonna let her go.

Abby: Yeah, I believe you. But I think it’s better for that to happen sooner instead of later.

Stitch: What was I thinking? I screwed all this up. I was just trying to bring us closer together. I needed a — I don’t know what I needed. A lifeline.

Abby: Yeah. And I can — I can be that for you. But first, we just have to clean up this whole mess.

Stitch: We can’T.

Abby: Yes, we can. Step by step, okay? And the first step is making sure that mariah and the baby are okay. Will you take me to them?

Rey: I got to call sharon.

Devon: Alright, I’m gonna try and get ahold of abby again.

Rey: Okay. Hey, sharon. Hey, yeah. Have you been in touch with abby lately?

Abby: No. I haven’t heard from her in hours. Is there any news about stitch? Do we know why mariah’s phone was found in his room?

Rey: I am now convinced that stitch was involved with mariah’s disappearance. He lied about being in iowa, and he lied about seeing someone suspicious in the convenience store.

Sharon: Are you sure about that?

Tessa: Sure about what?

Sharon: They think stitch kidnapped mariah.

Rey: I saw all the footage for myself. There was no older man buying protein bars. He made the whole thing up.

Sharon: Do you know where stitch is right now?

Rey: No, and he doesn’t know that he’s our person of interest, but I put out an apb.

Sharon: Okay. What do we do if we see him?

Rey: Nothing. Do not confront him. Do not attempt to handle this on your own. You call me, you hear me?

Sharon: We will.

Devon: Hey, yo, yo, denise just found out something.

Rey: Alright, sharon. Listen, I got to go, but I’ll be in touch as soon as I can. Just know we’re getting close, okay? Love you. Yeah.

Devon: She said there’s a house in town that was rented two months ago to ben russell.

Rey: Russell?

Devon: According to denise, that’s his birth name.

Rey: We got an address?

Devon: 787 willow lane.

Rey: Willow lane? That’s the same street that stitch said the convenience store was on.

Devon: That’s right. Let’s go.

[ Knock on door ]

Victor: Abby? It’s your dad. Abby? Abby? Abby?

[ Cellphone rings ] Yes, rey? Well, one second. I am at abby’s right now. I just knocked on the door, and no answer. I walked in, still no answer. The door was unlocked. Right. Then I found her phone. Well, she obviously left it behind. Willow lane? Well, I certainly you’ll find mariah there. What about stitch?

Abby: Mariah, oh, my god! You’re in labor! Come here! I’ve got big news!

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Abby: It’s okay. I am here, and everything is gonna be just fine. Um, how are you doing, aside from the obvious?

Mariah: Are you real?

Abby: I don’t understand.

Mariah: I’ve been — I’ve been having so many dreams of people coming — coming to rescue me, like — like tessa. I just — am I making you up?

Abby: No, no, no. I — I am very, very real.

Mariah: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, you’re really here. Oh, my god.

Abby: And I am not going anywhere without you.

Mariah: I was so scared.

Abby: So were we. So were we.

Mariah: I thought you guys would never find me. I thought I was gonna have to do this all alone.

Abby: No, it’s —

Mariah: We need — we need to get to the hospital. I think there’s still time, okay?

Abby: Wait, wait, wait, it’s okay, it’s okay. I, um — I brought a, uh —

Mariah: A what?

Abby: I, um — I brought my car. I brought my car. I brought my car, so, um, yeah, I’m gonna take you to the hospital, and everything is gonna be fine.

Sharon: I can’t believe that it was stitch. I mean, I can’t imagine him doing anything so vicious. What could have happened to this man in the last few years to make him change so drastically?

Tessa: I mean, whatever it is, it’s nothing compared to what I’ll do if I get ahold of him. He snatched mariah out of our lives and locked her away somewhere. She’s spent how many days terrified and alone? Meanwhile, he tried to convince us nothing was wrong by sending those phony texts. And he watched us as we grew more and more scared, when we realized that she was being held against her will. Was that fun for him? Did he get a sick thrill out of it?

Sharon: I don’t have any answers. I can’t explain this. I just know I’m hoping that when they do find him, he’ll tell us where mariah is. And rey said he’s getting close.

Tessa: I just wish that we knew more so we could aid in the search. Did rey reach abby already?

Sharon: No, he said he can’t get ahold of her. Maybe I should try.

Abby: Alright, how you doing?

Mariah: Now that I know you’re real and I’m on my way to the hospital, I feel like a million bucks.

Devon: Mariah!

Abby: We’re in here.

Devon: Oh, my god. Been scared to death. Are you alright?

Mariah: I’m so glad to see you.

Devon: I’m glad to see you, too. Abby, how’d you get here?

Abby: It’s a long story. I’ll have to explain on the way to the hospital ’cause mariah is in labor.

Devon: You’re in labor right now?

Abby: Yeah.

Devon: Where the hell is —

Abby: He brought me here, and now he’s gone, and I don’t know where he is. My one priority is mariah right now.

Devon: Alright, I understand.

Rey: House is clear. No one else is here.

Devon: Well, he couldn’t have gotten that far, so keep looking for him. I’ll stay with them. I got this.

Rey: Mariah, sharon and tessa are gonna be so relieved that you’re okay.

Mariah: I miss them so much.

Abby: Okay, come on, mariah. We’ll have to see sharon and tessa when we get to the hospital.

Mariah: [ Groaning ]

Abby: Got it? Got it?

Mariah: Oh. No, no, no!

Devon: Alright?

Mariah: Ahh!

Abby: Another contraction? Wait, wait, that’s very close to the last set of contractions that she just had.

Mariah: They’re getting shorter.

[ Breathing heavily ]

Devon: We’re still okay, though, right? I mean, the first child always takes longer. I heard that from somewhere.

Mariah: I can feel it. I’m not gonna make it to the hospital. The baby is coming now.

[ Groaning ] After my dvt blood clot…

[ Cellphone rings ]

Sharon: It’s rey. Rey. Yeah? You did? Thank you! Thank you so much.

Tessa: What? Tell me something.

Sharon: They found mariah, and she’s safe and abby’s with her.

Tessa: I want to see her. I need to see her.

Sharon: Tessa, hold on, hold on. What? Right now? Which hospital?

Tessa: What?

Sharon: Alright, be careful. I love you.

[ Gasps ] Mariah’s in labor. She’s having the baby right now. Abby’s taking her to memorial and rey is out searching for stitch.

Tessa: What are we waiting for? Let’s go.

Sharon: Okay. No, I told rey that I would call victor first.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Victor: Yes, sharon?

Sharon: Mariah and abby have been found, and they’re safe.

Victor: What about the baby?

Sharon: I hope you’re ready to be a grandfather.

Victor: Are you serious? Oh, my goodness.

Abby: How you doing?

Mariah: [ Groaning ] I feel like I’m having a baby.

Abby: Well, good, because that is exactly what we’re doing.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Mariah: [ Exhales sharply ] What if the emts don’t get here in time?

Abby: You know what? I, um — I have read all of the books and I watched all kinds of videos. I am — I’m very prepared.

Mariah: What does it say i should do?

Abby: Just try to relax.

Mariah: Okay.

Devon: That’s right. Try to relax and also try not to push. Okay, and listen to what nate has to say. I got him on the phone to help out.

Mariah: Hi, nate. I really wish you were here right now.

Nate: Hey, I will see you as soon as the emts get you and the baby to the hospital, okay?

Abby: And until then, your body knows exactly what to do. This is gonna go beautifully.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Mariah: I like your confidence. Oh. Ohh!

Devon: It’s okay.

Mariah: Ow, ow! Oh, this really hurts.

Devon: It’s okay.

Mariah: Ahh!

Devon: Hey, nate, what should I do, man?

Nate: Alright, breathe with her, like this.

[ Inhales deeply ]

[ Exhales deeply ]

Devon: Okay, alright. Hey, you hear me? We got to breathe. Got to breathe. In through your nose.

[ Inhales deeply ] Out through your mouth.

Mariah: [ Exhales sharply ]

Devon: Do it again, do it again.

Mariah: [ Exhales sharply ]

Devon: There you go. You got it.

Mariah: [ Whimpers ]

Devon: Keep doing it. Keep doing it.

Mariah: Ahh.

Devon: You got this. Hey, I am in awe of you and how well you’ve taken care of yourself and this baby through this whole ordeal, mariah. Okay? You’re amazing. Okay, let’s bring this little guy into the world. I know it’s not how we planned, but it’s gonna be just fine.

Abby: In all of my fantasies about how this would go —

Mariah: I hope this doesn’t look anything like it.

[ Exhales sharply ]

Abby: No, but in every single one of them, I was just thanking god for you. You are my best friend and my cheerleader and you are this baby’s fierce protector. And I am forever grateful for you.

Mariah: I think he’s gonna be a cool little dude.

Devon: Oh, I guarantee he will be. And I can’t wait to meet him.

Mariah: Ahhh. I think that’s — that’s gonna be sooner than you think. I feel like I need to push.

Devon: You do?

Mariah: Yeah.

Devon: Okay.

Mariah: Yeah.

Devon: Um…

Nate: Okay, it’s time.

Mariah: Okay.

[ Exhales sharply ] Okay, I’m ready.

Abby: Alright, this is the moment we’ve all been waiting for.

Devon: That’s right. Keep breathing, keep breathing.

Mariah: Ahhhh! Ahh! Mm!

Devon: You got it, you got it.

Mariah: Ahh!

Abby: You’re doing good, mariah. You’re doing really good.

Mariah: Ahhh!

Devon: You got it.

Abby: You’re doing so good, mariah. Doing great.

Nate: Dig down deep. You’ve got this.

Devon: You’re doing it. You’re doing it. You really are. Just breathe, okay? Just breathe.

Abby: Oh, my god. [ Laughs ]

Devon: What is it? What is it?

Abby: I can see his head.

Devon: Yeah?

Mariah: What does he look like?

Abby: He’s beautiful. He’s so beautiful.

Devon: Just keep going. Keep breathing. You can do it.

Nate: Alright, mariah, listen, you’re doing great. Now, when you’re ready, give me one more big push.

Abby: Mariah, are you ready? You got this.

Devon: You got this, you got this.

Mariah: [ Whimpers ] Ahhh!

Devon: You got it.

Mariah: Mm! Ahh! Ahhh!

Abby: [ Laughs ] Oh, my god.

Devon: Good job.

Abby: He’s here. He’s here. Mariah, you did it.

[ Laughs ]

Devon: Good job, good job.

Kids can change minds.

Mariah: How does he look?

Abby: Oh, he’s perfect.

[ Chuckles ] He has the cutest little fingernails.

Devon: Gosh, and the rest of him is just as adorable.

Mariah: Nate, why hasn’t he — he cried? Are his lungs mature enough?

Nate: Okay, you need to clear his airway. Make sure there’s no fluid in his nostrils.

Abby: Can I just use my finger?

Nate: Yeah, don’t be afraid. Just be gentle.

Abby: Come on, baby. Come on.

[ Baby crying ]

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: [ Laughs ]

Devon: Listen to the pipes on this kid.

[ Laughs ]

Abby: [ Laughs ]

Mariah: He’s a champion breather. Thanks, nate.

Abby: That’s the sweetest sound I’ve ever heard.

[ Laughs ]

Devon: Oh, my goodness. Mm. There you go.

[ Baby stops crying ]

Mariah: Devon’s got the magic touch.

Nate: Man’s a secret baby whisperer.

[ Sirens wailing in distance ]

Mariah: Is that an ambulance I hear or is that just a hallucination?

Abby: Oh, no, I hear it, too.

Mariah: Oh, thank god they’re here, even though they are a little late.

Devon: It’s just your welcome wagon. Pretty soon everyone’s gonna come in here and make sure you’re okay. They just want to make sure you’re happy and healthy.

Abby: You did it.

Mariah: We did it. Oh, thank god he’s okay.

Abby: Happy birthday, baby chancellor.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] Welcome to the world, little man.

[ All chuckle ]
