Sally: So, you’re asking if i know who’s been sending you the anonymous videos starring billy abbott acting like a jerk in public?

Adam: Do you?

Sally: You know, I can’t help but feel like your question is a wee bit…pointed.

Adam: What? In what sense?

Sally: Well, do I know who’s been sending the videos, meaning am I the one doing it? That’s really what you’re asking, isn’t it?

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Lily: Hey, you.

Billy: Hey. What’s going on?

Lily: Oh, you know. Work, work, and more work. I’m memorizing the bios of everyone on the chancellor board of directors. Jill’s setting up a get-to-know-you meeting, so I’m just prepping for it.

Billy: Sounds like you could use a break, and I have just the thing.

Lily: Uh-oh. Should I be worried?

Billy: [ Laughs ] Not at all. But I think you should come home as soon as you can.

Lily: Okay. Well, my brain is a bit fried, so maybe taking a break is a good idea.

Billy: Well, what I have planned will definitely help.

Lily: Well, in that case, I’m on my way.

Billy: I’ll see you soon.

Chloe: Chelsea. Hi.

Chelsea: Where are you?

Chloe: I just finished a lunch meeting, and I’m on my way back to the office, so I hope that you’re calling to tell me that you’re ready to come on board?

Chelsea: Not exactly, but…

Chloe: So you’re persuadable?

Chelsea: Connor was invited to a christmas party, so I’ve got some free time this afternoon.

[ Breathes deeply ] I’m willing to take the next steps towards making a decision. It’s time I met sally spectra, up close and personal.

Sharon: So, the menu is getting pretty eclectic since i told each of the kids to pick their favorite dish for me to cook. Oh, and faith is requesting your famous guacamole. Are you up for it?

Rey: Eh, a little avocado with our christmas ham? Very festive.

Sharon: What? What are you smiling about?

Rey: I just love seeing you so happy.

Sharon: Oh, well, it’s the first time in years I’ve had all three of my kids with me for christmas, and it’s a rare treat.

Rey: Yeah, I’ll miss seeing everybody in miami, but I am excited about the holiday we’re planning.

Sharon: I know it can be really hard to be away from the people you love this time of year. But, hey, how would you feel about inviting nicholas and christian over for christmas dinner?

Rey: Let’s do it. I’ll add another leaf to the table.

Sharon: You are so generous.

Rey: Mnh.

Sharon: You know, that’s one of the many things I love about you.

Rey: As long as the invitation doesn’t extend to nick’s brother, hmm? There are limitations to my generosity.

Sharon: I’m sure adam has his own plans with connor.

Chelsea: Sharon? Rey. How nice to see you.

Sharon: Chelsea. Hi.

These are the faces

Rey: I didn’t know you were in town.

Sharon: How long have you been back?

Chelsea: I just got back today. I’ve been spending time with connor. Missing him was the worst part of being away.

Rey: How’s your mother doing these days?

Chelsea: Mom’s doing well. Yeah. She’s gotten most of her mobility back, and she still speaks very highly of you, rey.

Rey: [ Chuckles ]

Chelsea: I’m sorry if she hit on you. That’s anita.

[ Both laugh ]

Sharon: Really? You neglected to tell me that part of your security detail.

Rey: Well, what can I say? Mature chicks dig me.

Chelsea: Oh, yes. My mom was smitten, so much so, in fact, that she was a lot more pleasant when rey was around and a lot more cranky when he left.

Rey: How are you feeling?

Chelsea: I’m good. You know, it’s — it’s a bit unnerving being back in genoa city.

Sharon: Well, I’m not surprised you’d feel that way. You’ve been gone for a while, and you were in quite a bit of turmoil before you left, transitioning out of the hospital.

Chelsea: Yeah. It was easier for me to put everything behind me when I was in another state, focused on taking care of my mom. But now I’m back and I’m in a penthouse and I feel like there are just reminders everywhere i turn.

Rey: Well, that’s only natural, right?

Chelsea: Well, whether it is or isn’t, I’m not certain I’m gonna stay past the holidays. And I’m sure there are several people in this town who would be very happy if I didn’t stay in genoa city.

Sally: Why would you jump to that conclusion, that I am the one behind all this?

Adam: Hmm. I mean, call me crazy, but that seems like something you might do.

Sally: Hmm.

Adam: Following billy around, gathering intel, and then sending the proof straight to me.

Sally: That’s the old sally, you know, someone who goes to extremes, lives on the edge. But I have turned over a new leaf.

Adam: Hmm. I see.

Sally: What? You don’t believe me?

Adam: I just know since you’ve worked here, you’ve mentioned a few times that my feud with billy worries you. And I did kind of ask you to spy on him.

Sally: Yes, but then you turned right around and told me to forget that you said anything.

Adam: True. Still, there’s a part of you that likes to go rogue. I mean, you will follow through with a plan whether or not anybody else is on board.

Sally: Well, that is called independent thinking, a trait you should value, given that’s how I put newman fashion on the map.

Adam: I do value it. Very much. But not when it goes against my best interest.

Sally: So, if I were to admit that the mystery videographer were me, how would you react? Because logic dictates that an anonymous spy who’s on your side and wants you to succeed is working in your best interest.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Billy?

Billy: Hey. Welcome home. I opened up some champagne. Pour yourself a glass and relax. I’ll be right down.

Lily: Oh. Okay. So, what’s with all of this, uh, gear?

Billy: I thought we could do a little role-playing.

Lily: [ Chuckling ] Oh, boy. Okay. What’d you have in mind?

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Don’t worry. I promise you we’re gonna have fun.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Okay.

Billy: How’s the champagne?

Lily: Mm. Pretty good.

[ Camera shutter clicks ] Sweet pillows of softness!

Lily: Well, this is quite the romantic gesture.

Billy: Well, I think it is, but maybe not quite in the way that you’re thinking. But you are now the ceo of chancellor industries, okay? You are stepping into the spotlight big time, and every major publication is gonna want to do a profile on you.

Lily: I know. The pr chief mentioned it, but I’ve just been too busy to even worry about self-promotion.

Billy: Ohh, see, now, that is a mistake.

Lily: Is it?

Billy: Yes. Your image is about to be synonymous with chancellor industries, okay? You need to be prepared.

Lily: Are you worried I’m not prepared?

Billy: Um… I wouldn’t exactly go that far. I mean, you have experience being the face of a brand, like you were with brash & sassy, and of course you’ve done many interviews with your role at chanccomm, but this is a whole new league, okay? And I am going to be your personal coach.

Lily: Oh. I see.

Billy: Mm-hmm. So, a little bit of practice, maybe a new headshot, and you will be ready to go. Sound good?

Lily: Yeah. Um, this is very generous of you, but, uh, do you have the right qualifications for this?

Billy: How dare you question my qualifications? I have years of media experience and a halfway decent camera, okay? But most importantly, you, my dear, are comfortable with me. So time to let yourself shine.

Lily: Ugh. Okay. I — [ Sighs ] Do you really want to do this? I came here to relax, and, honestly, this sounds like a lot of work.

Billy: Oh, come on, now. Okay, listen to me for one second, okay? You have been amazing with me in the last little while. And I am so grateful for that. But this is about you. You’re about to embark on a major transition in your career, and I want to support you in it, okay? So it’s time to focus on you.

Adam: Well, if you were to confess to gathering intel on billy…

[ Door closes ] …I’d probably say, “thank you, but cut it out.”

Sally: Because…?

Adam: You’re putting yourself in a tricky position.

Sally: That’s my favorite kind.

Adam: You run the risk he’s gonna spot you. He’s gonna figure it out, get angry, take action against you, which, at best, will be uncomfortable and, at worst…

Sally: Well, I think if my cover were to get blown, I would be able to protect myself, provided that I actually was the spy. See, I actually know the abbotts, and when someone crosses them, they are all bark and no bite.

Adam: Ohh. Yeah, that might be true for jack and kyle, but, um, billy lacks their moral compass, especially when he’s on a downward spiral. He’s even gotten violent before.

Sally: Oh, so you’re worried that it’ll come to bodily harm? I’m flattered that you care.

Adam: Well, of course. I don’t want to see you get hurt. I care about the safety of all newman media employees.

Sally: Mm-hmm. Right. Yes. ‘Cause I’m no different than the guys that work in it.

Adam: Exactly.

Sally: So you’ve kissed them on multiple occasions, too?

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Okay. Touché. Um…but I wouldn’t want them to run afoul of billy, either.

Sally: Which I may or may not be doing. But isn’t it better for you not to know the truth?

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Plausible deniability.

Sally: I mean, it’s much easier for you to maintain your journalistic integrity and not reveal your sources when you’re honestly in the dark.

Adam: You do make an excellent point.

Sally: But now my only question that really matters, in my mind, is this — will the information that you’ve received help you in your battle?

Adam: I’d say it’s a good start.

Chloe: Sorry to barge in on you, but I need you to come with me now.

Sally: Is there a problem?

Chloe: Just the opposite. Chelsea is ready to talk with you, and she’s over at crimson lights. We have to head over there.

Sally: Great! Yeah. I’ve been dying to meet her. Does this mean that she’s, uh, decided to come on board after all, that she’s no longer on the fence?

Adam: Well, I hope, between the two of you, that are able to convince chelsea to take the position.

Sally: Yeah. Well, you know I’m a team player. So, if you want chelsea at newman fashion, I will do whatever it takes to win her over.

Sharon: For the record, chelsea, I bear you no ill will. I’m sorry for what happened to you after your stroke and that you were pushed psychologically to the point where you imagined that adam and I were having an affair, and that sent you over the edge.

Chelsea: I realize that doesn’t excuse my actions. I know I apologized to you both before I left for minnesota, but I want to do it again.

Sharon: I appreciate that.

Chelsea: Hell, while we’re at it, I mean, I should be grateful that you even let me into crimson lights again, after i injured you in this very establishment just a few years ago. So, I’m sorry for that, too.

Sharon: Apology accepted.

Rey: And as you know, i forgave you for what you tried to do to me last summer. Like sharon said, you were in a bad way. But I saw you trying to work through that. And you seem like you’re in a better place.

Chelsea: I really am. Absolutely. And I’ve completed my therapy, and I feel like I’ve made a full recovery.

Sharon: Well, self-assessment is a very good thing, but —

Chelsea: Oh, no, and the courts agree. And being with connor, I think, is really gonna improve my outlook.

Sharon: I’m sure connor is really happy to have his mother home.

Chelsea: I’m grateful that you’re both willing to give me another chance.

Rey: ‘Tis the season.

Chelsea: [ Chuckles ]

Sharon: So, what’s next for you?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] I don’t know. [ Chuckles ] I think that’s why I’m on the fence about whether or not to stay in genoa city. I feel like life has just gone on without me and I’m not sure where I fit in anymore.

Rey: Well, give it some time. I’m sure you’re gonna figure it out.

Chelsea: Yeah, I suppose. I mean, chloe’s giving me the hard sell to come work for her. I have to admit, I admire what she’s been able to accomplish with sally spectra.

Sharon: Are you a fan of sally’s work?

Chelsea: Mm, I’m more familiar with her reputation than her actual designs. But I have to admit, that wedding dress she designed for victoria was quite spectacular. I’m actually meeting her here in a couple minutes to see if we’re compatible.

Rey: Well, I hope that goes well.

Chelsea: I mean, you remember, sharon. You worked with chloe and me. These kind of collaborations can become quite fraught. You have to have the right chemistry. You have to spark off each other creatively.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Sharon: Yes. Well, sally tends to set off sparks wherever she goes.

Chloe: Hi. I hope we’re not interrupting.

Sharon: No, no, not at all.

Chloe: Chelsea lawson, this is sally spectra. And I hope this is the beginning of a fashion dynasty.

Sally: I am delighted to finally meet you face-to-face. Serena: It’s my 3:10

Chloe: Thank you so much.

Rey: Well, I’m glad to see chelsea’s doing well.

Sharon: Yeah. She seems grounded, optimistic.

Rey: Yeah. Not sure about her plans. Though spending time with her son could help with that.

Sharon: Well, if she wants to be a part of connor’s life, she’s going to have to stay here. Adam has full custody. And the boy’s family is here.

Rey: Yeah, I just hope being around adam doesn’t undo any progress she’s already made. I’d hate to see it all fall apart for her again.

Sharon: Well, adam and chelsea are going to have to co-parent and possibly work together, too. Depending on what she decides with her career, they’re gonna have to deal with each other on a daily basis.

Sally: When I was designing victoria’s wedding dress, i looked to your bridal work for inspiration. I know that I will learn a lot from working with you, and i think we can do great things together.

Chelsea: Thank you. I was impressed with the coup you pulled off, convincing victoria to wear your creation.

Sally: Well, it didn’t take that much convincing, if you want to know the truth.

Chelsea: I like your plans for newman fashion. Chloe tells me you plan to be the on-camera talent for the platform’s video content?

Sally: Yeah, I’m practically exploding with ideas. But I would kill for your input.

Chelsea: I’m sure the camera’s gonna love you, sally. You’ve got a real over-the-top energy.

Chloe: Having you head up the team with me would be a dream come true. I mean, the three of us, with newman media’s deep pockets and adam’s hands-off philosophy, I mean, we could really build something extraordinary.

Chelsea: Well, as I said, I’m not certain I’m coming to newman fashion. In fact, I’m not sure I’ll even be staying in genoa city.

Chloe: [ Chuckles ] Okay, um, let me remind you that this platform was built — I created it — for you. I mean, you have this incredible opportunity just waiting for you to jump right into. So let’s stop talking about leaving town and start thinking this through. Adam isn’t going to let you leave with connor. I think it’s time to admit to ourselves that you are here for the foreseeable future.

Rey: You know, the combination of chelsea working with newman media and co-parenting is gonna force her to spend a lot of time with adam. And, yes, the guy’s at his best when he’s with connor, trying to be good parents. It brings out his humanity. But ever since he went after billy again, I’ve seen the signs of the old adam. And if he and chelsea butt heads over any reason, I’m afraid it’s gonna make her have a major setback.

Sharon: Well, co-parenting without conflict isn’t easy.

Rey: Devil’s advocate? Look at you and nick. All the challenges you’ve faced with faith this year, you were able to bring her through the other side, safe and sound, and your friendship remained intact.

Sharon: And I couldn’t have done it without you. You’re my rock. You’ve been a really great husband to me and a great stepdad. How did I get so lucky?

Billy: Okay. I will be the interviewer.

Lily: Okay. I will be the victim.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Looks like I got my work cut out for me.

Lily: Mm. I’m sorry. I know you put a lot of work into this. I’ll stop being a smartass.

Billy: Oh, no, please don’t stop now.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] I just hate this so much, but you’re right. I should be prepared.

Billy: You ready? We’ll get started?

Lily: [ Sighs ] Okay.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] Hi.

Lily: [ Laughs ]

Billy: I am from

famous ceo daily, and I would like to do a profile on you.

Lily: Hello.

Billy: Hi.

Lily: What is your name?

Billy: I’m studly wonder.

Lily: Oh, boy.

[ Laughs ] Very nice to meet you, mr. Studly wonder.

Billy: You, as well, ms. Winters. Um, I got to be honest. I’m a little bit nervous. I’ve heard a lot about you. You’re clearly a bright, intelligent woman, but you’re strikingly beautiful. So, if you don’t mind, I’m just gonna start with a couple softballs to get us both warmed up.

Lily: Okay.

Billy: First of all, what did you have for breakfast this morning?

Lily: You already know what i had for breakfast this morning.

Billy: Excuse me?

Lily: Ugh. Okay. Um, I had yogurt and granola and coffee, lots of coffee.

Billy: Okay. Great. Reasonably healthy. That’s good. Um, take me through a morning. What time do you get to the office?

Lily: I usually get to my desk at around 8:00 A.M.

Billy: Hmm. Would you consider yourself a morning person?

Lily: Yes, I think, you know, raising twins has trained me for that.

Billy: Right, probably taught you how to multitask, I would guess.

Lily: Oh, yeah, ’cause when you have one crying and the other one screaming, running through the house, I think it helps prepare you for running a corporation.

Billy: I’m sorry. Are you saying that executives are like toddlers?

Lily: Actually, sometimes, yes. My co-ceo at chanccomm —

[Sighs] He was — he was a handful.

Billy: Yeah, I’ve heard about him. I’m sure you’re glad to be rid of him.

Lily: No, actually. I really miss working with him. His, um, qualities made things very interesting and exciting.

Billy: Okay. Um, let’s talk about your leadership philosophy. Do you see yourself as a disrupter or a, um, stabilizer or maybe a turnaround manager? What would you say?

Lily: I would say that, uh — all of the above. I think I’m a very flexible leader. I can kind of change to whatever the situation needs. Um, so, you know, whether it’s shaking up the status quo or, um, you know, being there for my team and showing that I’m an advocate for them.

Billy: That’s a great answer. What about your role models? Do you have any?

Lily: Yes. Um, katherine chancellor, obviously, uh, jill abbott, and my father, neil winters.

Billy: I’ve heard nothing but great things about all of them. I’m sure your father would be extremely proud of you. If you don’t mind, I’m gonna ask a little bit more of a difficult question.

Lily: Well, I’m sure your readers might wonder if I have the right qualifications for this job, to which I would say that I think one of my key strengths is managing people. You know, I think — I spend also hours of listening to thousands of chancellor employees so that I can build trust with them and reassure them that I can lead them through whatever challenge may arise.

Billy: Great job.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

Billy: Now, um, that’s not what I was actually gonna ask, of course.

Lily: Okay. Sorry. I got ahead of myself.

Billy: It’s okay. No worries.

Lily: Please, mr. Wonder, ask me the hard questions. I love them.

Billy: Okay.

[ Clears throat ] How much do you love the man you’re with?

Lily: Oh, well, actually, it’s really funny you ask me that. I just did a 360 review of his skills and qualities, and i would say that his scores are off the charts. Don’t settle for products that give you a sort-of white smile.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sally: Well said, chloe. See how wanted you are, how valued?

Chelsea: Leave connor out of this.

Chloe: It’s impossible.

Chelsea: I told you. I haven’t made up my mind yet. I need more information before i make a decision. I can’t become a partner in your creative collaboration based on a hard sell and some well-meaning guilt trips. I need to know who I’m getting into bed with.

Chloe: Are you serious? You know me better than anyone. If you can’t trust me, who can you trust?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ]

Sally: You know what? Sounds like you two need to hash this out. I’m gonna give you guys some privacy.

Chelsea: No. Stay. The truth is, I trust chloe. That’s not the issue. There’s actually just one thing I need in order to decide.

Sally: What’s that?

Chelsea: Some honest answers. From you.

Rey: Looks like quite the summit meeting.

Sharon: That is a lot of fashion designers at one table.

Rey: You ever miss working in the fashion industry?

Sharon: I was never a designer, and while I am curious what chelsea’s next chapter might be… you know what? I’m happy with my life right now and I studied really hard to become a therapist and I enjoy it.

Rey: I know you do. I was just teasing.

Sharon: Besides, selling a latte to sally is about as much time as I would want to spend with her.

Rey: Yeah. She worries me, too. I mean, chelsea taking that job with sally in the mix feels like trouble. I could never see those two seeing eye to eye.

Chelsea: You can compliment and flatter with the best of them. And that may work with some people.

Sally: But not you.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] I’m sure you know all about my past, just like I know all about yours. Running away from los angeles in disgrace, all your troubles with phyllis, summer, lauren, not to mention your doomed — or should I say botched — relationship with jack.

Chloe: Aww, chelsea…

Sally: Wow! I did not realize I was such hot topic in minnesota. How exactly did you become such an expert on me?

Chelsea: I have my sources.

Sally: Yeah, you must have gone through considerable effort to get the goods on me.

Chelsea: I wanted to make sure I knew who I was potentially getting into business with.

Sally: Well, then if you’ve done your research, then you must know that I have tons of great ideas for newman fashion.

Chelsea: I am impressed with your ideas. I am. I’m just left wondering, how are you not the biggest liability for any company, especially ours?

Sally: Yeah. I mean, someone could probably say the same thing about you. I mean, I wouldn’t, but I doubt anyone but your best friend would hire you right now.

Chelsea: Are you deflecting because you’re scared to answer the question?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Have I made tons of mistakes? Yeah. Tons of them. Along with some pretty powerful enemies, mainly because I’ve spent my entire life in defense mode, fighting to protect what’s mine. Case in point. It is a constant struggle, which I’m sure you understand because, yes, you are right, I do know all about your past.

Chloe: Okay. So, maybe we should focus on the present.

Sally: Whether or not you want to admit it, chelsea, you and I are a lot alike. Everything that we have ever longed for in life always seems just out of reach. So we have learned to do whatever it takes to level the playing field. I’m not gonna apologize for that because it’s how I survive. And if you think that that makes me a liability in your eyes, then so be it. But know this — that hunger and that drive and that determination is the energy that I plan to pour into newman fashion to make it a success. I have something to prove to the rest of the world, and this is where I’m gonna do it. Any more questions?

Chelsea: Uh, no, not right now. I’m actually quite impressed.

Chloe: Okay. So, chelsea, what’s it gonna be? Are you in, or are you out?

Billy: Well, that was great. I think we’re good. I think we have enough for our profile on the new ceo of chancellor industries.

Lily: Great. Okay. Well, it was a pleasure speaking with you.

Billy: I’m sorry. We’re not done yet. You can’t have a profile without a killer photo to go along with it.

Lily: Oh. Okay. Photo?

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Lily: [ Sighs ]

[ Camera shutter clicks ]

Billy: Oh, that’s amazing. Yes.

[ Camera shutter clicking ] Beautiful! And that is a wrap! My goodness.

Lily: Oh, gosh. Okay. How’d I do?

Billy: You did fantastic. I mean, you’re a natural. Have you ever thought about modeling?

Lily: Oh, ha-ha.

[ Laughs ] No. That was fun. It was a good distraction. Thank you.

Billy: You’re welcome, and I’m glad you had a little bit of fun at least.

Lily: Yeah, it was, but also productive. I know people are gonna wonder how I went from being in prison to running a corporation, so I’m glad you made me practice. I need a good answer.

Billy: A dazzling answer. Good is for amateurs.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, I know people are gonna wonder if I’m up to the task, and my goal is to change their mind. And I think I can.

Billy: Well, you just proved to me that you can handle any question anyone throws at you.

Lily: I know that I can excel at this job.

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Lily: I wouldn’t have taken it otherwise. But knowing that you’re behind me makes all the difference.

When you have nausea,

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Adam: Well, I hope you’ve come in peace.

Chloe: Good news. Chelsea’s joining the team.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] That… that is fantastic.

Chelsea: Sally and chloe convinced me it’s too good an opportunity to pass up.

Adam: [ Inhales sharply ] Well, they are right. You’ll be a valuable asset. You’re far and away the best designer I’ve ever known. Welcome aboard.

Chelsea: Thank you.

Adam: I’ll, um — I’ll have business affairs draft up a contract as soon as you and chloe work out the details.

Chelsea: Perfect. Well, I should get going. I have to pick up connor from that party. Uh, you know, I would love to find a time to have that conversation we discussed.

Adam: Um…sure.

Chelsea: Great. And in the meantime, um, your son and I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Adam: Well, give connor my love.

Chelsea: I will.

Sally: Can I talk to you about something?

Adam: Um…sure.

Chloe: You know what? I’m gonna walk you out. I’ll help you go over the deal.

Chelsea: Sure. Sounds great.

Adam: What do you think you’re doing?

Billy: Excuse me. Are you laughing at my art?

Lily: Well, I mean, they’re so bad.

Billy: I never claimed to be a real photographer.

Lily: I mean, look at this. I’m barely in the frame, your finger is in the photo, and they’re blurry. They’re terrible.

Billy: Okay. Alright. At least now I know what I’m gonna get you for your next gift — a real photo shoot with a professional photographer.

Lily: Oh, that’s a wonderful idea, studly. Can I call you studly?

Billy: I’d be offended if you didn’T.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, cheers.

Billy: Thank you. Cheers. Mm.

Lily: So, I actually have a serious question for you now.

Billy: Okay. It’s only fair that we switch roles. Lay it on me.

Lily: Are you gonna tell jack about your plan to trick adam into thinking that you’re drinking and gambling again?

[ Door closes ]

Chelsea: Can I get you anything? Snack? A drink?

Chloe: Maybe later. You said yes! I mean, there is so much work to do, and I’m just so relieved that you’re willing to work with sally. I’m proud of myself for hiring her and giving her a second chance, and I saw that resonated with you. But right now my main focus is getting your input on what you think about the fashion platform, what are your ideas. So, how soon do you think you can start?

Chelsea: Sally created the first big buzz for newman fashion. Is that gonna get to her head? Is she gonna be willing to take orders from me?

Chloe: I mean, well, we haven’t discussed it yet —

Chelsea: Chloe, you sold me on a leadership team consisting of two people — you and me. Is this gonna turn into a triad?

Chloe: No. No, of course not.

Chelsea: Well, does sally know that? Because she’s ambitious. She’s run her down design house. Are we gonna have to be looking over our shoulder to make sure she’s not trying to muscle in past us? I want to know. How exactly do you plan to keep this woman in check?

Chloe: When sally burned her last bridge with lauren, i offered a helping hand. And since that day, she has been working her tail off. And what’s more, she’s grateful. I really don’t think that she’s planning any coups. I was also very clear that the plan was always to bring you on board as a partner. Yes, she created a cool wedding dress, but she works for me, which means that she will work for us.

Chelsea: And I think that would change in a heartbeat if sally has her way.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] You just met her. I think you’re making a lot of assumptions.

Chelsea: I know the type. Of course sally needs a second chance. It’s probably because she’s made enemies everywhere she’s gone. She’s out for number one. She’s not gonna stop until she gets to the top, and my theory is she already has a plan. And it mostly likely involves adam. What sort of dynamic have you noticed between the two of them?

Chloe: There is no dynamic. Adam is her boss. She gets it. She’s not about to overstep.

Chelsea: Good. ‘Cause that’s a boundary i wouldn’t want to see breached.

Sally: I assumed that you’d want me to debrief you on our meeting with chelsea. I have to admit, I’m pretty proud of myself for winning her over.

Adam: Was she that hard to convince?

Sally: Chelsea is — how shall I put this? — Quite strong-willed.

Adam: [ Laughs ] Uh…indeed.

Sally: She has some obvious concerns about working with me. I get it. But I think that we’re a lot alike, and I predict that we are going to get along well.

Adam: Is that really all you wanted to say? ‘Cause I hope you didn’t stay behind to make some to chelsea or mark some imaginary territory.

Sally: Ouch.

Adam: Look, I don’t want any trouble, okay? Chelsea’s been through enough. She’s connor’s mother. So any kind of drama at newman fashions, I want it in the work and not around the office.

Sally: And as for that matter that we discussed earlier, i hope you continue to get useful and pertinent information from your secret investigator.

Adam: I do, too.

Billy: I took what you said before to heart, and I think you’re right. As irritated as jack’s gonna be, I think I need to tell him the truth — that his screw-up brother is not actually screwing up this time. I’ve heard jack far too many times, and I don’t need to unnecessarily make him suffer again just for my plan to get back at adam.

Lily: I am really, really happy to hear you say that.

Billy: I’m actually grateful that you brought it up. Thank you.

Lily: And, look, I still worry about your plan ’cause a lot can go wrong, but you’ve shown me over and over how much you believe in me. And once I start this job, I’m gonna need you by my side more than ever.

Billy: No place I’d rather be.

Lily: And as much as you believe in me, I believe in you.

Billy: It’s gonna be a wild ride.

Lily: It certainly is.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Tessa: Is your heart set on having a biological baby, or would you ever consider adopting?

Billy: I’m gonna make you pay. Do you hear me?

Adam: You do that.

Lily: Oh, my god! Billy!

Victor: As a matter of fact, I can use you. You will be my right-hand man.

Traci: [ Laughs ]

Abby: Ahh!
