Phyllis: Okay, I think that’s it. Here. That’s good, jeremy. Thank you.

Lauren: Hey.

Phyllis: Hey!

Lauren: [ Laughs ]

Phyllis: Happy last day of the year.

Lauren: Right? How are you doing?

Phyllis: I’m good, I’m good. I just talked to summer. And nick had a great birthday apparently. Kyle and summer took him to all their hot spots and favorite restaurants and stuff.

Lauren: Oh, I’m glad that went well and that summer is doing really wonderful. So it’s new year’S…

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Lauren: …And, um, you know, I know jack is out of town, not an option, so…

Phyllis: Okay, well, jack was just an option to you.

Lauren: Really? Was he? You know, you can keep saying that, but, alright, so do you have plans tonight?

Phyllis: Um, no. I really don’T. I mean, crystal’s taking care of all the festivities here.

Lauren: Well, good. Then you’re gonna have dinner with michael and me.

Abby: [ Gasps ] Yummy, yummy, yummy. Yummy, yummy, yummy. My little boy. My little guy.

[ Sighs ]

Chance: What would you like to change?

Devon: I mean, for starters, I would just like to spend more time with dominic.

Abby: Well, you know you’re always able to come over here and visit whenever you’d like.

Devon: I do. I was thinking, though, more in terms of — of time, you know, scheduled for just the two of us, where we can plan it out and we can, you know, look forward to it. I was even thinking, too, i mean, he can — he can have his own room in my place for when he stays over.

Abby: Correct me if I’m wrong, but it sounds like you’re asking for shared custody.

Devon: Practically speaking, yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.

Chance: Hey. You’re up. I thought you two were taking naps.

Abby: [ Chuckles ]

Chance: I’m so sorry if he woke you. I totally would’ve grabbed him if I would’ve heard him cry.

Abby: No, there were no tears. I went and checked on him when i woke up, and he was just in there playing with his little fingers and his little toes and being absolutely adorable.

Chance: He’s just too cute.

Abby: Yeah. And besides, that nap was not nearly enough to make up for all the sleep I lost last night thinking about devon’s request. I mean, he wants to change the legal agreement that we made before dominic was born.

Chance: Yeah, I know. He blind-sided both of us there, huh?

Abby: If he had broached the idea of shared custody before, I mean, I think that would’ve changed a lot of our decisions.

Chance: Mm.

Abby: We all agreed to a plan.

Chance: I know, I know, but, you know, that plan didn’t really take into account all the crazy things that happened this year. You know, nobody could have predicted any of that.

Abby: I know. And [Sighs] I know we owe devon so much. I’m incredibly grateful to him, not just for being the donor, but for loving our boy so much and for wanting to be a part of his life.

Chance: Yeah, it’s gonna be really important to dom as he grows up.

Abby: I would never want to do anything to jeopardize that.

Chance: So does that mean you’re thinking about agreeing to devon’s request?

Nate: Is that coffee for me?

Elena: Yes. It’s the least I can do since you’re helping me move today.

[ Both laugh ] Although I have to admit, I am going to miss living above crimson lights. Coffee always at the ready.

Nate: Well, I’ll tell you what, I will buy you an espresso machine and anything else you need to keep you happy in your new home.

Elena: Oh. Well, I don’t need things, silly. I just need you.

Nate: Oh, okay, I’ll just take back those new high-thread-count sheets you bought us, then.

Elena: Don’t you dare.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: Can’t wait to sleep in those.

Nate: Mm, I’m looking forward to it, too. But not as much as I’m looking forward to waking up with you in my arms. The perfect start to a new year.

Chloe: My mom came up with the most brilliant idea for tonight. She’s setting all the clocks four hours ahead so the kids can still ring in the new year and make bedtime.

Chelsea: Sounds like fun. I don’t think connor’s gonna fall for that, though.

Chloe: Oh, so you guys are going to be enjoying the actual countdown. Drinking an apple cider toast to 2022.

Chelsea: Actually, connor is spending the night at a friend’s house tonight.

Chloe: Oh, well, I didn’t realize that you were gonna be alone. Why don’t you come out with kevin, lauren, michael, and me.

Chelsea: Oh, thanks, but I’m actually looking forward to a quiet evening at home. I might invite adam over to watch the fireworks, you know, ’cause I have such a great view.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] Chels, I don’t know if that’s such a great idea.

Sally: Aha. Great minds. I was just coming to get something to go, too.

Adam: Sally.

Sally: Have you considered my proposal to do nothing for new year’s eve? We can just hang out and do nothing together.

Adam: Well, it all depends on what the “nothing” is that you want to do.

Sally: So I’ve given it some thought. It’s actually a little overwhelming. There are a lot of ways to not do anything.

Adam: Hmm. Well, do tell.

Sally: Well, we could not plan to go to dinner and just happen to run into each other, you know, same place, same time. Or we could not go to a jazz club and countdown to 2022 in 5/4 time.

Adam: But is that really keeping in the spirit of this whole thing? I mean, getting dressed up and going out, it kind of steers towards the doing-something end of the spectrum.

Sally: Mm-hmm.

Adam: Don’t you think?

Sally: Yes, totally get it, and I really appreciate your commitment to the concept — you know, the whole inertia of it all. A body at rest stays at rest, in which case, maybe just hanging out would be our best option? You know, watching a movie, having some pizza. It’s really, truly the definition of doing nothing.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Can’t be a new year’s-themed movie, though.

Sally: Couldn’t agree more, because, as we said, we are not celebrating the holiday.

Adam: Right, right, right. It’s got to be a movie that we would watch any night of the year.

Sally: Like a slasher flick.

Adam: Really?

Sally: Okay, then, what about hitchcock? Can never go wrong with that. “The birds,” “psycho.”

Adam: “North by northwest,” “vertigo,” “marnie.” As it turns out, I am a huge hitchcock fan.

Sally: Cool. Well, then maybe you’ll hear from me. Or not.

Chelsea: Please don’t make a big issue about me inviting adam over tonight. You were fine with the fact that we spent christmas together.

Chloe: Well, that was totally different, and you know it. It was all about connor. Lots of co-parents suck it up for the holidays for the sake of their kids.

Chelsea: “For the sake of their kids” — what are you trying to say, that adam’s just tolerating my presence to keep connor happy? That if it wasn’t for our son, he’d want nothing to do with me?

Chloe: That is not what i meant.

Chelsea: We’re friends, okay? Even after everything I put him through. He hired you, then he hired me, trying to re-launch my career. I mean, it’s got to be a sign of something.

Chloe: Well, if you ask me, it was a sign of his guilty conscience over what he put the mother of his child through.

Chelsea: I know the difference. He cares about me, and it’s from his heart, not from some misguided sense of obligation.

Chloe: Okay, so we’re talking about a lovely, genuine, platonic friendship. And that’s where it stops, right? No. No, no, no, chelsea. Please tell me that you are not going down this path again.

Chelsea: I can’t help how i feel.

Devon: [ Sighs ] Hey, guys.

Nate: Hey!

Devon: Here I am. Here to help out. Put me to work.

Elena: Devon, I didn’t realize you were helping me move.

Nate: Well, I didn’t mention it because I wasn’t sure cuz here was even gonna show. He was pretty noncommittal when I asked him.

Devon: Oh, no, you guys always know that I’m down to help out.

Elena: Great. Nate, why don’t you get us all fresh coffees, and I will go box up the last few things.

Nate: Alright.

Devon: Sounds good.

Nate: [ Sighs ] So, how’s it going? Thinking about you and dominic, wondering if abby and chance got back to you about spending more time with him?

Devon: Not a word yet. And the more time that goes by, the less optimistic I am.

Abby: The more I think about what devon is asking of us, the worse I feel. I mean, I could have asked anyone to take care of dom while I was away. I mean, a number of people would have wanted to do it, but, no, I-I chose devon.

Chance: Well, because you trusted him. You knew he’d take good care of our son.

Abby: Yeah, but if he had told me he was having a hard time maintaining emotional boundaries…

Chance: Well, it might’ve not been an issue then. You know, maybe it wasn’t until I got back and he saw me struggling to adjust, maybe that’s when he started having concerns.

Abby: No. I don’t think he would hold that against you. He knows everything that you’ve been through and he knows that you’re doing your best. If anything, I think he has an issue with my parenting.

Chance: [ Sighs ]

From the very first touch,

Phyllis: That’s very sweet of you, lauren. Thank you very much. But you know I’m — I’m me. You know, I’m not a third wheel. I’m not going to crash your romantic dinner with michael.

Lauren: No, no, no, you wouldn’t be a third wheel. Chloe and kevin are gonna be there.

Phyllis: Ugh. Nice. That doesn’t make it more appealing, just so you know. I mean, besides, I’d be a fifth wheel, crashing with two couples. No.

Lauren: Mnh-mnh. Look, this is not a pity invite. I actually really need you. I need you to referee between chloe and me ’cause there’s still tension after she allowed sally to pull that whole thing with victoria’s wedding dress.

Phyllis: Oh, you know I’m on your side with that, and I would encourage you to call her every name in the book.

Lauren: Thank you. So I will be hurling insults in your ear all night long, getting it out of my system so I don’t ruin michael and kevin’s good time.

Phyllis: Huh. Trash talking with an occasional side-eye.

Lauren: Exactly.

Phyllis: That could be fun.

Lauren: Right? So you in?

Chance: Abby, I can’t imagine devon or anyone questioning your parenting. I mean, everyone knows how much you love dom.

Abby: Well, maybe it wasn’t clear when I dropped our baby off at devon’s doorstep and headed off to spain. Maybe he thought that was incredibly irresponsible. I mean, even you, you had some concerns about that. You can’t argue that point.

Chance: Abby, I was concerned about your safety. Okay? I understood why you felt compelled to come look for me, and I’m sure devon does, too. Especially since your instincts were right.

Abby: Maybe he thinks a good mother would never abandon their baby, under any circumstances.

Chance: I have never heard him say anything like that.

Abby: He wouldn’t have to say it. He wouldn’t have to say it. He would do exactly what he’s doing right now, by asking for a bigger role, wanting to be a bigger influence in dominic’s life, wanting to be his protector.

[ Scoffs ] And let’s not forget that he witnessed me letting stitch back into our lives, which shows terrible judgment.

Chance: Hey. No one can blame you for what happened with stitch, okay? There’s no way you could’ve known any of that was gonna happen. Are you kidding?

Abby: Devon knew that something was off. Maybe his protective instincts are better than mine.

Chance: Hey, relax. Breathe. Okay, all of these thoughts are coming up because you’re exhausted, you’re upset. Take a second.

Abby: Yeah. Maybe you’re right. Maybe that’s what it is, but what happens if we tell devon no? How’s he gonna react?

Chance: I don’t know. I — I mean, you know him better than I do. How far do you think he’d take this?

Chelsea: Can we please skip the same old argument about why adam and I shouldn’t get back together?

Chloe: You would think that after everything that he’s put you through, I wouldn’t have to remind you.

Chelsea: I understand your points. I really do. I understand. In the past, our relationship has been very toxic and it caused me to almost lose my mind, but I’ve learned from my mistakes. I’ve learned from them. I’ve left them in the past.

Chloe: Why do you have such tunnel vision when it comes to this guy? There are so many men out there. Beautiful, sweet, non-toxic men who would make you so happy.

Chelsea: I don’t doubt they exist, but what adam and I have is unique.

Chloe: What is it, chels? Do you think that you’re incapable of having a healthy relationship? Do you think that you’re unworthy of it?

Chelsea: You didn’t see us at christmas, okay? It was normal and it was special. It was two caring, mature adults doing what’s right for our son.

Chloe: [ Scoffs ] That was the point — for your son.

Chelsea: No, but — no, it was for us, too. I haven’t felt this happy or more at peace in a really long time, chloe. That’s got to stand for something, right?

Chloe: I am really glad that you were able to spend a few hours together without being destructive. Yes, it is a huge improvement. And that you got through it for the sake of your son, but it doesn’t prove that everything is going to work out in the long run.

Chelsea: I am convinced adam has changed, and I’m not the only person who thinks that. He’s made amends with his father, with his siblings. He’s — he’s calmer, less selfish, more settled. And I’m different. I’ve changed. I’ve worked so hard on myself. I’m not gonna fall into those same traps.

Chloe: And that is great and all, but it doesn’t mean that you should get back with him.

Chelsea: Well [Sighs] If it makes you feel any better, adam is skeptical about us working, as well, you know? Of course he’s gonna be a little gun-shy, considering what I did, but I really think that if i give him some time, he will learn to trust me again.

Chloe: Okay, you seem like you are very determined and anything I say is not gonna keep you from going down this pipe dream, so, please, please just for tonight, will you just come out with your friends and have some fun for new year’s eve? Okay, you can call adam tomorrow.

Chelsea: Why is it so important to you that I don’t see adam tonight? Do you know something I don’t?

Chloe: What? I-I don’t know why you would — why you would say that.

Chelsea: Tell me. Does adam have plans already?

[ Gasps ] Does adam have plans with sally? I brought in ensure max protein,

Chloe: I don’t know what adam is doing tonight. Why would I? We don’t discuss our social calendars.

Chelsea: Does sally have plans with you and kevin tonight?

Chloe: No, no.

Chelsea: But not because you didn’t invite her. You did, didn’t you? What was her excuse?

Chloe: She was very vague about the whole thing. She only said that she had plans, which made me wonder why she was being so evasive.

Chelsea: [ Gasps ] Her plans are with adam, aren’t they?

Chloe: I do not know, and I’m not going to speculate.

Chelsea: Well, I can’t imagine what else she’d want to hide.

Chloe: Don’t be so sure of that. Sally is quirky. She could be up to lots of weird stuff.

Chelsea: Well, exactly, and usually she’s brag about it. I’ve spent enough time with her. I’ve realized she’s not quiet about anything unless she has a reason, and she didn’t want to admit she was ringing in the new year with adam because you’ve warned her a bazillion times to stay away.

Chloe: Oh, just as many times as I’ve warned you.

Chelsea: That’s totally different. Adam and I share a history. We share a child.

Chloe: Yeah, and I keep telling you to just leave the past in the past. I don’t want either one of you to get mixed up with this snake.

Chelsea: I get it, chloe. I get it. I know exactly how you feel about adam.

[ Sighs ] So, how do you plan to put a stop to this?

Chloe: What do you mean? I have no say in the matter. Adam does not need my permission as to who he can go out on a date with.

Chelsea: Whoa, so it is a date?

Chloe: [ Sighs ] It was wrong — it was wrong choice of words. Sally specifically said that she was not going out on a date.

Chelsea: Who cares what sally says? She’s obviously trying to get her hooks into adam.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] You know…what does it matter anyway? What does it matter? The last thing you should be doing is sitting here by yourself stewing over what adam is up to. Please, please just come out with your friends. Let’s have fun tonight. We’ll throw our hair down, party like it’s 2022. You being here alone is just not — it’s not a healthy choice.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] You’re right. Definitely wouldn’t be.

Chloe: Great. Okay, so kevin and I will be by around 9:00. We’ll pick you up.

Chelsea: Sorry, but, like our friend sally, I’ve got plans now.

Elena: Hey.

Nate: Hey.

Elena: Is everything alright with devon? He seems a little off.

Nate: [ Sighs ] He’s still waiting to hear back from abby and chance about increasing his visitation time with dominic.

Elena: Does he think they’re gonna have a problem?

Nate: They’ve gone all day without giving him an answer. I mean, it’s possible his request didn’t go over so well, and I don’t feel too great about it.

Elena: Why?

Nate: I’m the one who convinced him to talk to them about his feelings. And now it seems like it might have backfired.

Elena: Well, I mean, don’t you think it’s too soon to assume the worst? Maybe they’re talking to their lawyers about amending the legal agreement. It’s pretty hard to track those people down during the holidays.

Nate: You would think newman-abbott-chancellor lawyers would make themselves available 24/7. But [Sighs] Maybe you’re right and this doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll turn devon down. That would be a tough blow. Little dominic means so much to him.

Abby: I mean, I can’t even believe that we’re having to think about this. Devon has been so supportive through this whole process, from the very beginning. I mean, up until now. And now we have to think about how far he’ll go.

Chance: I know, I’m sorry that I even mentioned it. Look, I bet the contract that you guys have is totally solid. I bet it’s fine.

Abby: Yes, yes, it is. I mean, christine and I went through it line-by-line. Although I-I hope it’s not gonna be an issue that I handled it while you were gone.

Chance: No, no, and I doubt we get to the point where we even have to worry about any of that, okay? Whatever we decide, though, we have to handle it in a way that’s respectful for devon, you know, and his feelings, ’cause he’s real sincere, the way he talks about dom. He wants to protect him.

Abby: Yeah, yeah, he is, and even though we’ve assured him time and time again that he will always have access to dom, I mean, I guess it must be scary for him that he has no — no legal guarantee. But, look, we have to do what’s best for our son and our family.

Chance: I know, I know. Hey, let’s take a break from all this, okay? Let’s clear our heads, get some fresh air. How about a walk?

Abby: Please, yeah.

Chance: Come on.

Abby: Yeah.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Adam: Hey, chelsea.

Chelsea: I need to talk to you. It’s important.

Adam: What — are you okay? You sound upset. Is connor okay?

Chelsea: I don’t want to discuss it over the phone. Can you come to the penthouse?

Adam: Uh…sure.

Chelsea: Soon?

Adam: Yeah, yeah. I’m leaving right now. Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Elena: I got you guys some snacks to keep your energy up.

Nate: Mmm. Oh, look who’s here. Baby dominic.

Abby: Oh, and abby and chance, too.

[ Laughter ]

Elena: Hi to abby and chance, too.

Nate: Sorry, guys, baby trumps parents every time.

Abby: Mm.

Chance: Guess we got to get used to that, huh?

Nate: Oh, we almost missed you guys. We’re actually in the process of moving elena’s things to my place.

Abby: How wonderful.

Chance: Congrats, man.

Nate: Thank you.

Elena: Hi, baby dominic. I missed you so much.

[ Laughter ]

Dominic: [ Giggles ]

Elena: You guys, I think he remembers me. He’s smiling.

Abby: Yeah, he probably does. I mean, devon was telling us that you checked in on him while we were in europe.

Elena: Yeah, we also spent thanksgiving together. Really had a chance to bond with this little guy.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Devon: Wondering what took you guys so long. Hey.

Nate: Hey, devon. Elena got us some snacks for helping her move.

Devon: Oh, thank you. I’m all set, though. Appreciate it.

Nate: [ Clears throat ]

Elena: Uh, nate, um, can you help me with something?

Nate: Sure, babe.

Elena: See you guys.

Abby: Yeah, bye.

Nate: See you guys later.

Chance: See you.

Devon: How’s my little guy doing? What’s going on, buddy?

Chance: Oh, you know, just out for a little walk, grabbing a little hot chocolate. Hate to tell you, man, but we don’t have a decision for you yet.

Devon: Oh, that’s — that’s more than fine. I want you guys to take all the time you need. Alright? I’m gonna — I’m gonna get back up there and start helping out before they think I ditched them. So, see ya.

Abby: Actually, devon, can i have a word with you privately for a moment?

Devon: Yeah, of course you can.

Phyllis: Yeah. Uh, okay, I decided. I’ll get all dressed up. I’ll spend new year’s eve with you and michael and chloe and kevin.

Lauren: Oh, yay! It’s gonna be fun.

Phyllis: Yay! It will, it will. Friends, champagne, a potential cat fight between you and chloe — it’s great. What better way to ring in the new year.

Lauren: Right. I mean, there is a way that you could improve it.

Phyllis: Why? How? What’s that?

Lauren: Well, you could call or text jack happy new year, and let him know that even though you rejected his christmas eve invitation, that things are good between the two of you.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Things are good between us. Listen, I only know he was out of town because you told me. He didn’t tell me himself.

Lauren: Well, maybe he doesn’t know that it’s okay to contact you and that you’d want to hear from him. Alright, just think about it, okay? Think about it. And I’ll see you tonight.

Phyllis: It’ll be fun.

Lauren: I know, so much fun.

Kevin: Huh? Look. Miles is gonna love laughing at me wearing these. And…how cute is our little princess gonna look wearing this? Almost as cute as her mom would look. Alright, what’s going on with you? You don’t seem like you’re ready to ring in the new year.

Chloe: I’m worried about a work situation. It hasn’t impacted work yet, but it has the potential to cause a boatload of issues down the line.

Kevin: Explain.

Chloe: Okay, here goes. Despite my best efforts to dissuade sally, she is determined to flirt with disaster in the form of adam newman.

Kevin: Not this again. What has she done now?

Chloe: Well, she won’t admit it, but I assume that she’s already made plans with adam for the new year’s eve, and normally it wouldn’t be that bit a deal — it would just be annoying — but now chelsea suspects what’s up and she’s not happy about it.

Kevin: Why would chelsea even care? I thought she and adam were through.

Chloe: I wish. No, she still considers adam her destiny. Go figure.

Kevin: Hmm, nothing to worry about there. It’s not like chelsea has a history of overreacting or anything when she gets jealous, just ask sharon.

Chloe: Now you understand why I’m freaking out.

Kevin: How did chelsea even find out about it? Don’t tell me that adam was cruel enough to rub it in her face.

Chloe: Nope. It’s on me, actually. I did my best to steer my dear friend in the opposite direction, but she — she just saw right through me, and now she’s got this plan, presumably to keep adam away from sally.

Kevin: Do you know what it is?

Chloe: No. She made me leave without telling me anything, and that’s why I am so nervous right now.

[ Sighs ]

Chelsea: Thanks for coming.

Adam: What happened? Where’s connor?

Chelsea: Oh, connor’s fine. He’s spending the night at a friend’s house.

Adam: Okay. So what has you so upset?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] It’s nothing specific. It’s just…

[ Sighs ] It’s just all been building up, and I can’t take it anymore. I have to get out of here. This is a gamechanger, Aside, and can we please justmanipulative narcissist in the

Kevin: I get why you’re nervous. Two reckless, impulsive women competing for the same manipulative narcissist in the same workplace? That is a recipe for disaster.

Chloe: Thanks. That’s so reassuring.

Kevin: But the good news is there is nothing you can do about it tonight, so put it aside, and can we please just enjoy our last date night of the year?

Chloe: I wish I could. I’m so sorry. I really do, but I have put so much time and energy into building this platform from scratch. I can’t just sit back and watch this whole thing blow up.

Kevin: Well, even if the worst thing happens, right, would it be so terrible if you lost this job and never had to worry about sally or adam again, huh?

Chloe: I know that I only got involved because it was mostly about having a safe place for chelsea to land after everything that she had been through, but I’m so invested in this now. I can’t stand by and watch all of the hard work that I’ve done just go down the drain because of some jealous rivalry.

Kevin: Don’t you think sally and chelsea are worried about that, too?

Chloe: Oh, no. No, no, they are just so nonchalant about the whole thing.

[ Scoffs ] Chelsea keeps saying, “oh, don’t worry about it.” “Oh, everything’s gonna be fine,” sally keeps telling me. Meanwhile, they are both on this collision course of epic proportions.

Kevin: And you’re stuck in the middle, trying to make sure tragedy doesn’t strike.

Chloe: How can two such incredible, beautiful, amazing, talented women who have so much going for them just get sucked into thinking that adam, of all people, is worth fighting for?

Kevin: Wish I knew. Obviously they see something in him we don’T.

[ Chuckles ]

Chloe: After everything he’s done. He doesn’t deserve to have anybody care about him. He deserves to be alone and miserable for the rest of his life.

Kevin: Be sure to tell him that.

[ Chuckles ]

Chloe: Maybe that is the solution. Instead of trying to have to get through to either of the women in this bermuda triangle, maybe I can convince adam to distance himself from both of them. Even if it’s out of his own self-interest, and of course it would be, because that’s all he ever cares about. Great idea. Thanks for the suggestion.

Chelsea: You of all people should understand why I’m upset. My reasons for wanting to leave this penthouse are the same as yours. The memories — I mean, they — they permeate through every inch of this place. They haunt me in every room.

Adam: I totally get what you’re feeling.

Chelsea: And I’ve tried — I’ve tried to get past it, adam. I really have, for connor’s sake, because I know he loves it here. I know he loves being back in his old room. But he doesn’t know everything that’s happened here. He doesn’t have to live with the ghosts lurking around every corner.

Adam: Yeah, I felt them, too.

Chelsea: All the times we hurt each other. All those days I spent trapped in my own mind, silently screaming to get out. I wish I could just go back in time and shake myself and force myself to get rid of all the negativity and the anger and the bitterness and realize — realize what I was throwing away before it was too late.

Adam: [ Sighs ] I’ve been exactly where you are, and I have felt the same feelings. And you’re right, it was easier for me to move out than to live with the constant awful reminders. So if you’re asking me for permission to move out, you have it. When I gave you the penthouse, i said you can do whatever you want with it.

Chelsea: I’m not asking for permission.

Adam: Then what? Forgiveness? You have that, too. I have zero desire to punish you for the mistakes of the past, chelsea. Okay, we have suffered enough already, and connor, too. I mean, I thought I made that clear enough already.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] What hurts more than the dark memories are the beautiful ones. All the loving ones, filled with so many promises that we just didn’t keep.

Abby: So chance and I have been talking a lot and thinking about what you asked us.

Devon: Well, know that I’m not trying to rush you into any kind of decision, okay? I want you guys to take your time, and if you have any questions for me —

Abby: Yeah, yeah, I have a lot of questions because we just — we did not see this coming.

Devon: To be honest, abby, i didn’t see it coming either. I really didn’T. Um, but I certainly didn’t mean to just spring it on you like i did.

Abby: Are you mad at us about something? Is there something that we did and you just never said anything until now?

Devon: No, no, of course not. I told you guys, it’s not — it’s not about anything you guys did. This is about me just wanting to spend more time with dominic. Honestly. And also, I want to be a support for you and chance. I want to be someone that you guys can both rely on the same way that dominic can.

Abby: [ Scoffs ] So, when you say that you want my son to be able to rely on you, is that because you think he can’t rely on me?

Devon: No, not at all.

Abby: Devon, just, please, be honest with me. Is this about spain? Did you feel like I abandoned my son, that I let him down?


Adam: I don’t think it’s a good idea for either of us to dwell on the past, chelsea.

Chelsea: Well, it’s easy for you to say, adam. You moved away from this place and all the memories. Tonight is new year’s eve, and i can’t help but think back on that night two years ago.

Adam: Do you really want to go back there right now?

Chelsea: I can’t help it. You stood right there, all alone. I walked in. We connected eyes. We didn’t have to say any words. I fell right back into your arms. You remember the fireworks that night? They were pretty spectacular. I knew right then that I was exactly where I needed to be. The next day, we decided to put our family back together.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Chelsea, a lot has changed since then.

Chelsea: There was so much hope and excitement and — and love between us. What happened, adam? How did we lose it all?

Abby: Abby, you’re completely taking this the wrong way, ’cause I’m not criticizing your parenting skills or chance’S.

Abby: You trusted us to take care of our son alone before, I mean, and now it seems like something’s changed.

Devon: Nothing’s changed at all. No one said that I don’t trust you. That’s not what this is about. I know that you guys are going through a lot right now, especially chance being back home, right?

Abby: Chance told me about your conversation.

Devon: Okay.

Abby: And, yes, he’s not used to taking care of a baby, but he will learn.

Devon: Of course he’s gonna learn, and I think he’s gonna end up being a great parent, too. I’m just trying to help you.

Abby: There is more to this than just that, and we both know it. You’re not asking to babysit. You’re asking for shared custody, for legal rights to my son.

Devon: You know what? If you and chance are feeling so defensive about this, that’s not my intention. This was a bad idea, okay?

Dominic: [ Crying ]

Abby: I-I need to get back to dominic.

Chance: It’s okay, it’s okay, buddy. Hey! Hey, you guys are good. We’re totally fine. We’re totally good.

Abby: Yeah, you got it. You got this.

Chance: Hey, buddy. You’re alright, you’re alright, you’re alright.

Dominic: [ Crying ]

Chance: You’re alright.

Devon: I’m gonna take off, guys, alright?

Chance: Yeah, see?

Abby: Hey.

Devon: Hey, guys, I know that I said that I’d help out today, but something came up and I got to take off. I’m sorry.

Nate: Yeah, cool. No problem.

Elena: I guess that didn’t go well.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Lily: Why does it seem like all of a sudden you think that you’re in charge now?

Victoria: Because I am.

Nick: Maybe there are greener pastures out there for you.

Noah: Where would that be?

Nick: Come work for me.

Adam: My personal life is not your business anymore until it involves connor, and this isn’t like that at all.

Chelsea: But it might be in the future? Sounds like you’re leaving the door open for that. Are you falling for sally spectra?
