Update written by Joseph

Brady joins Chloe at the Bistro with a rose and wishes her a Happy Valentine’s Day. Chloe starts to remind him that this isn’t a date but Brady explains that a kid was selling roses outside so he just bought it to help out. Chloe thanks him for the rose and for joining her tonight as she really appreciates it. Brady assures that he’s here to support her and lend a hand. Brady asks how she’s feeling about meeting her dad’s new boyfriend. Chloe admits she’s a nervous wreck.

Craig finds Tripp outside and comments that he has a romantic setup and looks like he has some big plans for Valentine’s Day. Tripp informs him that he’s planning to propose to his girlfriend.

In the town square, Chanel asks Allie what she’s going to do. Allie says she doesn’t know and points out that she’s not even supposed to know that Tripp is proposing tonight but his mom spoiled the surprise. Chanel points out that now Allie does know, so she should probably figure out an answer for when he asks her to marry him. Chanel asks Allie if she’s going to say yes.

Ben and Ciara talk about how Johnny delivered their cross, the cross keeps turning upside down, and Johnny was at Marlena’s exorcism. Ciara points out that Johnny has been acting strange lately. Ben asks if they think the Devil just jumped from Marlena to Johnny and that now Johnny DiMera is possessed.

Johnny tells Gabi that they say pride goes before the fall and they need to screw Jake before he screws them. Johnny then asks if Gabi has any Valentine’s Day plans.

Allie tells Chanel that she’s still trying to process this. Chanel decides she shouldn’t have asked and that Tripp should be the first one to hear her answer. Allie tells her that she deserves to know since she is her best friend and has been with her throughout this entire relationship. Allie admits that she’s caught off guard since they never even talked about marriage. Chanel points out that it is Valentine’s Day. Allie knows a lot of people get engaged on Valentine’s Day but she did not think it was her time. Chanel asks if she’s thinking that she might say no. Allie says she’s just not sure and asks Chanel if she thinks she is ready.

Craig tells Tripp that it could go either spectacularly right or wrong. Craig recalls proposing to his wife thirty years ago and calls it a moment to remember forever. Craig asks if he’s making it harder on him. Tripp jokes that he is a little bit but he’s managed and now he and his wife have been together for 30 years. Craig then reveals that he and his wife are in the process of splitting up. Tripp says it’s sorry to hear that. Craig calls it a difficult situation. Craig informs Tripp that tonight, his daughter is supposed to meet his boyfriend and he’s a nervous wreck about it.

Brady understands Chloe is nervous about tonight but notes that Craig has to know it’s awkward for her, so she’s allowed to feel however she needs to feel about it and Craig will just have to deal with it. Chloe worries about whether or not she will like the guy. Chloe feels like if she does like him, it’s betraying her mom. Brady says there is nothing wrong with wanting both of her parents to be happy. Brady asks what Nancy is doing tonight. Chloe says she left her in her hotel room where she is watching old movies on Peacock and acting very depressed. Chloe mentions convincing Nancy to order room service. Brady encourages that Nancy is tough and will get through this. Chloe knows it will take time. Brady asks if Nancy knows about this dinner. Chloe says no as she kind of wanted to tell her but she didn’t know what to say.

Johnny asks Gabi if she wants to go upstairs since Jake shouldn’t be the only one closing deals. Gabi thinks they should keep their mind on business. Johnny says he’s very good at multi-tasking. Gabi prefers to stay focused on DiMera and Titan. Johnny points out that it’s Valentine’s Day and they aren’t with someone they love. Gabi asks if they should just love the one they are with. Johnny asks who said anything about love. Gabi asks if it’s just meaningless sex then. Johnny responds that sex with him is far from meaningless. Johnny argues that Jake is plotting against her and Chanel is trying to clean him out, so they both deserve to have a little fun.

Ben and Ciara talk about the Devil being in Johnny. Ciara wonders if the Devil just wanted them to think he was gone but instead just found a new host body. Ben calls it unbelievable but Ciara points out everything else they have been through. Ben says that would explain why the cross kept flipping upside down, because Johnny delivered it and the Devil would do anything to break through the protection. Ciara talks about Johnny showing up at Julie’s and then all of a sudden a fire burst out to stop Julie from delivering the cross and leaving Johnny to deliver it while making sure their brand new home has the mark of the Devil. Ben says if Johnny has really been The Devil the entire time, they’d have to retrace all of his steps to find the damage he’s already done. Ciara points out that this is still just a theory. Ciara declares that after coming face to face with the Devil, it may be easy to see him everywhere else. Ben thinks it makes sense. Ciara asks if they have any more evidence. Ben talks about Jake telling him about the big party for Johnny and Chanel’s wedding where they broke up as if Johnny created this big scene to humiliate Chanel. Ciara wonders why he would do it in public. Ben adds that Jake said Johnny has been hitting on Gabi now. Ciara says that would make Johnny a player and a garbage human being but doesn’t necessarily prove he’s The Devil. Ciara suggests Jake could just be a jealous boyfriend.

Jake goes to the Kiriakis Mansion to see Maggie, who asks what he’s doing here. Jake says he came to see what’s going on and that he got her message. Maggie questions what message. Jake says she sent him a message a little bit ago and said it was urgent. Maggie reveals that she hasn’t seen her phone since she misplaced it yesterday so she didn’t send him a text. Maggie informs him that she did speak to Victor regarding what they talked about which Jake questions. Maggie says she relayed the terms of their agreement and Victor had some questions. Jake says he will have to get back to her on that because he has to go look in to something as he exits the mansion.

Johnny tells Gabi that he knows this hasn’t been easy for her as she put her faith in Jake and he let her down while letting her think he loved her. Johnny says he can only imagine how disappointing it must be for her. Johnny promises he won’t disappoint her in business or anywhere. Johnny suggests they go upstairs and make it a Valentine’s Day to remember. Gabi says she’s sorry but she can’t as she’s just not ready to go that far yet. Johnny asks if she’s not ruling it out. Gabi says they will see how this meeting goes. Johnny questions her leaving him here all by himself. Gabi is sure he’ll be fine but she wants to go prepare for the meeting. Gabi reminds Johnny that he is still married as she hurries out of the mansion. Johnny remarks that he doesn’t like being rejected or left alone, so he asks what’s a horny devil to do with himself.

Craig tells Tripp that he never expected to be in this situation as for the longest time, he convinced himself and his wife that they had a great marriage. Craig admits that Nancy is very angry at him now and his daughter was completely blindsided. Tripp points out her being willing to meet his boyfriend. Craig notes that she agreed but worries that it’s unfair that he asked her. Craig wonders if he should claim to have food poisoning and call off the whole thing but Tripp says that may not be the best idea. Craig admits it would be postponing the inevitable. Craig doesn’t know why he’s confiding in Tripp but he was nervous and needed to talk to someone. Craig says that Tripp is very kind and he appreciates that, but he should let him get back to his plans. Tripp says it’s okay and he understands he’s going through a lot. Craig thanks him and encourages him to stay in that good mood. Craig advises Tripp that if he feels nervous then it’s worth doing. Craig wishes Tripp good luck. Tripp says the same to him as Craig walks away. Tripp looks at his ring with a smile.

Chanel tells Allie that she’s not the best person to give advice on marriage considering how hers have worked out. Allie says the Xander marriage doesn’t count and it’s not her fault that Johnny is the worst. Chanel says she chose to marry him and had no doubts. Allie then gets a text from Tripp to meet her. Allie wonders if this is it. Chanel says it looks like Allie has a question to answer. Chanel says no matter what she decides, she loves her as they hug. Chanel then walks away looking uncertain.

Jake goes home to Gabi, who asks what Maggie wanted. Jake informs her that Maggie didn’t want anything as apparently she never sent that text. Gabi questions what he’s talking about as she saw the text herself. Jake says they both saw it but Maggie claims she lost her phone and hasn’t seen it since yesterday. Gabi says it makes no sense. Jake says unless it does as he thinks Johnny stole Maggie’s phone and sent him that message.

Chanel walks through the town square and comes across Johnny, who wishes her a Happy Valentine’s Day. Chanel questions what is so happy about it. Johnny is sure they can figure something out and asks if she wants to get a drink. Chanel questions him wanting to grab a drink with the woman he just dumped, on Valentine’s Day. Johnny gets that she’s still upset and says she has every right to be angry with the way he treated her, but they had fun together. Chanel claims not to remember. Johnny says he always loved being with her and just because they are getting divorced doesn’t mean the fun has to stop.

Brady and Chloe continue to prepare to meet Craig’s new boyfriend. Chloe thanks him for dealing with her mess tonight. Brady says he’s happy to support her and calls it an interesting situation. Chloe asks if he thinks it’s interesting that he has to spend his Valentine’s Day holding her hand because she’s freaking out. Brady reminds her that last year on Valentine’s Day, he was in the hospital, recovering from a gunshot wound so this is better than that. Chloe recalls almost losing him. Brady says he’s here and he’s good with no bullet holes. Brady calls this a much better improvement. Chloe points out that they’ve had some nice Valentine’s Days in the past. Brady can’t think of one as only disasters come to mind. Brady recalls not being able to get a reservation in Vienna. Chloe says they made it work and reminds him of the outdoor cafe with a string quartet. Brady recalls it freezing and snowing. Chloe brings up remembering how Brady kissed her that night. Craig then arrives interrupting them. Craig hugs Chloe and says he’s glad she is there. Craig asks if Brady is meeting someone for Valentine’s Day. Chloe explains that she invited Brady to join them tonight if that’s okay with him.

Chanel questions why the hell she’d want to go anywhere with Johnny. Johnny asks why they wouldn’t still be friends and questions when things got so nasty between them. Chanel guesses that he’s just worried about her lawsuit and coming for his money. Johnny remarks that his family is rich but that doesn’t mean he controls any of it. Johnny points out that Chanel couldn’t even pay her rent for awhile. Johnny says if she thinks this divorce is going to turn in to a big payoff, she should think again as the only people getting rich are the lawyers. Chanel says she’s done with this. Johnny tells her that she can’t avoid him as they both live in Salem and she’s business partners with his sister and much more. Chanel tells him to leave Allie out of this. Johnny asks if they can figure this out without lawyers and invites her to go talk somewhere.

Gabi questions Jake as to why Johnny was pretending to be Maggie. Jake suggested he wanted alone time with Gabi. Gabi calls it an elaborate scheme, knowing Jake would figure it out as soon as he got there. Jake admits that it doesn’t make much sense but asks if Gabi has any other theories. Gabi responds that the other theory is Jake’s lying. Gabi then says she knows he has no reason to lie to her so they can take that out. Jake argues that it would benefit Johnny to shake things up. Gabi doesn’t know what Johnny has to gain by Jake going to the Kiriakis Mansion. Jake asks what Johnny said to her after he left. Gabi claims nothing and that she told him she would contact him when she came home. Jake doesn’t trust Johnny. Gabi says she knows but they don’t have to be partners for life with Johnny, just long enough to call this meeting and once they have his shares, they can be CEO of DiMera and Titan. Gabi asks if he’s sure that’s what he still wants. Jake says of course but he really wants them to stop talking business as he kisses Gabi.

Ciara tells Ben that Jake thinking Johnny is trying to take Gabi away from him doesn’t make him the most credible observer, but admits they are still red flags. Ciara says if there’s a chance that The Devil is still in Salem, they need to know about it fast. Ciara thought this was over and they would be safe. Ben promises he won’t let anything happen to their baby and he’ll do everything in his power to protect them both. Ciara brings up Johnny being Marlena’s grandson. Ben doesn’t want her to cause Marlena more pain. Ciara feels there has to be a way to figure this all out without getting Marlena involved. Ben says he’s not thrilled with the solution but suggests talking to Susan Banks.

Tripp sets up his picnic table with lights and a candle. Allie arrives and asks if he did all this for her. Tripp jokes about event planning. Allie calls it a beautiful night, perfect to be under the stars. Tripp thought it’d be more private than in a restaurant. Allie says this would make any girl feel special and it’s beautiful. Allie kisses him and thanks him. Tripp says he was planning on waiting until after their meal but now he realizes there’s no way he can wait that long, so he’s just going to. Tripp pulls out the ring and says he’s never been happier than when he’s with her. Tripp talks about how they both came out of the darkest period of their lives and pulled each other back in to the world. Tripp says she gave him life and hope, so he wants to spend the rest of their days, trying to make her as happy as she’s made him. Tripp declares that he wants to be her husband and Henry’s father. He wants them to be a family. Tripp gets down on one knee and proposes to Allie. Allie says yes, so Tripp puts the ring on her finger and they kiss.

Chanel tells Johnny that her mom said she should stay away from him and let the lawyers handle things. Johnny asks if she wants to turn their lives in to some messy court battle. Chanel admits it’s not. Johnny suggests they go somewhere to talk or go back to her place or his but Chanel says hell no. Johnny asks what’s wrong with his place. Chanel responds that she’s never going back to his place again. Chanel says that if they are going to talk, they have to do it somewhere a bit more private than the middle of the town square. Johnny points out that there’s no one here now. Chanel says that could change at any minute, so she tells Johnny to follow her.

Gabi pulls away from Jake, so he asks what’s wrong. Gabi says she’s just a little distracted and wants to check on Rafe since she never found out what happened in court and she wants to find out how his first day of trial went. Gabi opens her laptop and finds out that Rafe’s accuser testified and Melinda caught Nicole trying to tamper with a witness.

Craig is glad Chloe invited Brady since he knows how close they are and how difficult it might be for Chloe to meet the new man in his life. Chloe admits she’s a bit nervous and thought Brady could keep her from saying or doing something she shouldn’t. Craig admits he’s been nervous too but realized he has nothing to worry about. Craig assures that the guy he’s been seeing will put them at ease since he’s funny and finds humor in every situation. Craig says that the guy is very kind and he’s sure that he will love them and they will love him.

Gabi worries that this is really bad for Rafe. Jake encourages that it’s just the first day of trial. Jake tries to kiss Gabi but she pushes away and says she can’t do this right now. Jake complains that it’s not now or apparently ever. Gabi asks what that means. Jake argues that it’s Valentine’s Day and she’s been acting weird all day. Gabi claims she hasn’t. Jake points out how he covered the bed in roses and bought her chocolates. Jake adds that she’s been acting all day like she doesn’t care about him unless she’s being openly hostile. Gabi questions him having to ask when her brother is on trial for his life. Jake asks if she’s sure that’s what this is about. Gabi asks what else it would be. Jake says he doesn’t know but it seems personal. Jake asks if they are okay. Gabi claims they are great and says she needs to go find some answers as she walks out of the room.

Ciara asks Ben what Susan Banks knows about Johnny being possessed. Ben thinks she has a sixth sense about this kind of thing since she warned them about The Devil in the first place and recognized that Marlena was possessed before anyone else. They agree that Susan might be the one who would be able to sense if the Devil is still in Salem. Ciara points out the issue that Johnny is Susan’s grandson so she would do anything to protect him and she doesn’t know how happy Susan would be to get a phone call from them, accusing her grandbaby of being The Devil.

Tripp and Allie sit together and eat cake. Tripp talks about being engaged and says she will soon be his wife as they kiss. Chanel and Johnny approach. Chanel apologizes and says she didn’t know they were there. Chanel tells Johnny they can go somewhere else but Allie stops her and questions what she’s doing with Johnny. Chanel says that Johnny just wanted to talk about the divorce. Johnny notes the romantic setup and asks what they have going on out here.

Gabi goes to the police station and sees a Valentine’s bear with a rose, causing her to think back to Jake waking her up with a rose. Gabi says it doesn’t make sense that Jake could betray her like this.

Jake paces in his room and almost throws his box of chocolates in frustration, but stops and eats one instead.

Craig doesn’t know what is holding up his boyfriend as he has no texts or messages. Chloe points out that it’s only been a few minutes. Craig decides to text him again, assuming there must be traffic. Brady agrees. Chloe points out that she doesn’t even know the guy’s name. Brady looks over and sees Leo Stark. Craig asks how he knew as Sonny’s ex, Leo, comes over and hugs Craig, wishing him a Happy Valentine’s Day, leaving Brady and Chloe in shock.

Ben starts to call Susan but Ciara remains unsure if it’s a good idea because she could warn Johnny. Ben says they have to hope Susan does the right thing unless she has a better idea. Ciara reluctantly agrees and asks what he’s even going to say to her. Ben calls Susan but it goes to voicemail. Ben leaves a message to call him back when she gets it as he has something pretty important to talk to her about. Ben hangs up and worries that he panicked. Ciara guesses Susan might be out with Roger for Valentine’s Day. They decide they won’t get any answers tonight and will just have to wait. Ciara hopes they are just jumping to conclusions and that The Devil is out of Salem for good. Ben assures that they will get through it and deal with it together either way as they kiss.

Allie and Tripp announce to Chanel and Johnny that they are engaged. Chanel congratulates them and says that she is happy for them. Johnny thinks back to overhearing that Chanel and Allie slept together. Allie asks if Johnny is going to say anything like congratulations. Johnny claims that he is happy for her but he’s curious to find out if she told Tripp before accepting his proposal, that she slept with Chanel.

“Killing Eve” Ends Its Successful Run

“Killing Eve” Article!

“Killing Eve” Season 4 premieres this week on AMC/AMC+ and BBC America by Suzanne 2/28/22

On February 10, I watched the TCA (Television Critics Assocation) panel for “Killing Eve,” which is beginning its 4th season. I was not able to ask a question, but I enjoyed watching the panel (and all of the AMC panels that same day). I don’t watch the show regularly, but I do plan to go back and finish watching it one of these days. There are just too many good shows to watch.

This is one worth watching, as I’m sure everyone knows by now. It’s one of the few shows that not only has critics raving but fans watching. This is its last season, unfortunately. It will be missed by its many fans. I’m sure the actors and writers will go on to many other great projects.

The panel included actors Sandra Oh (Eve), Jodie Comer (Villanelle) and Fiona Shaw (Carolyn); and executive producers Sally Woodward Gentle and Laura Neal (Oh is also executive producer). Many journalists were there to ask questions. It was great to listen in.

Y&R Update Monday, February 28 2022

Young & The Restless Update

Y&R logo

Recap written by Christine

Devon and Amanda kissed each other good morning. She was off to a meeting with Lily and Billy. Devon said he was meeting with Lily today too. He wasn’t sure what his sister wanted to discuss, but she’d sounded excited when she called. Devon got a text from Abby letting him know how well Dom was doing. Devon replied thanking Abby for the update and saying he was going to visit later. Amanda knew it had been hard for Devon to put on a brave front. Devon wanted the baby to spend at least a couple of days at the penthouse once the doctor said it was okay for him to travel. Amanda thought Devon had been more than reasonable suspending the custody agreement while Dom was sick. She thought it was time to get back to normal footing. He said it was incredible to think about how much Dom had gone through in his young life. He asked what she thought about Dom coming to stay a little more often. He knew she was starting a demanding job, so he asked if that was asking too much. She said she’d supported him getting shared custody, and she was willing to fight to make sure it happened, so no one understood better than her how much family meant to him. She always knew he’d want to spend every minute building a life for Dom, and that was what she wanted for him and for Dom.

Imani came over, and Devon asked if she was coming to the meeting. Imani came to strategize with Amanda about how they’d step in as Chancellor’s legal counsel. She didn’t know anything about a meeting. Devon thought that Lily wanted to talk to him about the podcasts they were starting. Amanda said Lily asked her to tag along as legal counsel. She promised to fill Imani in later. Even though Imani was just associate counsel, she thought it’d make sense for her to go too. Amanda didn’t think that was necessary. Imani said she could bring another set of eyes and ears to the meeting, and she wanted to get a sense of how Lily functioned in a work environment. Amanda accepted this, and they all left.

Billy was in a bedroom at his condo trying to record the first episode of his podcast. It got off to a rough start, due to nerves and inexperience. Once things seemed to be progressing, Billy realized that he forgot to press record, and he called himself a dumb-ass. He started again, and he couldn’t get the hang of what he wanted to say. He started to feel like the podcast was a waste of time and as if he didn’t have anything insightful to say.

Lily was on a video chat with Jill. She said she invited Devon and Amanda over to discuss Lily’s proposal. Jill said that Lily had exceeded her expectations in every way, and if she could make this proposal happen, it’d be a game changer for Chancellor Industries. Jill’s support was meaningful to Lily. Lily knew how huge this would be, if she could pull it off. Jill and Lily ended the call as Billy walked in and asked what was going on. Lily asked about the podcast. Billy told her how badly it went. He wasn’t sure he had anything worthwhile to say. She was sure he did, since she’d heard his recording. He said there was nothing flowing, and he was starting to wonder if he was a one hit wonder. She suggested he wait until after midnight to record. He was still feeling unsure about the whole thing. She gave him a pep talk and a kiss.

Lily told Billy about her proposal. He said no one would ever accuse her of thinking small. She hoped Devon would be excited. Billy thought it was an epic move, and he believed it said a lot about Lily that Jill gave her the go-ahead to do this. Lily said she didn’t tell Billy about this before, because she was concerned Jill would nix the idea. Lily had expected Billy to be wowed by her idea, and he wasn’t, and she asked why. He said he was, and she didn’t buy it. Before he could respond, Devon, Amanda and Imani arrived. Lily asked about Dominic, and she and Billy were pleased to hear he was doing well. They got to the point for the meeting. Lily said Devon’s acquisition of Mergeron was a big risk that paid off. She noted that Hamilton Winters was a much smaller company than Chancellor. She said Chancellor had resources that Devon could tap into to bring his company to a larger scale. Hamilton Winters could also open doors for Chancellor, because H-W generated a lot of content, and it had a younger demographic. Amanda thought the venture into podcasts was the best way to explore the reciprocal benefits. “Why stop there?,” Billy asked. Lily said Neil wanted her and Devon to work together, and they did for awhile, but it didn’t go as planned. She proposed bringing the companies together – Chancellor Winters.

Devon was caught off guard, and he wasn’t sure what to say. He asked if she really wanted to make such a big move right after becoming CEO. Lily stated that Jill loved the idea and said she regretted not thinking of it herself. Imani asked if the companies would remain autonomous or would it become a wholly defined entity, in which case how would they define their roles? Lily said they could work that out later. Imani felt that these critical issues needed to be considered up front. Amanda said this was just a preliminary discussion between Lily and Devon. Imani was going to object, and Amanda quieted Imani by reminding her that she was supposed to be the eyes and the ears.

Devon said he had total autonomy at Hamilton Winters. He loved the idea of working with Lily, which was why he agreed to do the podcast project. He thought they should focus on that and see how it went. Lily said she was talking about doing something on a much larger scale, with limitless possibilities. “Don’t forget, you’re a Chancellor too,” she added. Devon didn’t forget, but he didn’t know if this was the right move for him. His company was in a great place, and it took a long time to get there, and Dominic had health issues, and Devon didn’t feel like this was the time to make such a big change. Lily was disappointed, but she understood. Devon loved Lily and admired her for thinking outside the box. The guests began to leave, and Lily said to giver her nephew a hug for her. Once Lily was alone, she picked up Neil’s picture. She know how he’d feel about the merger and her wanting to come together with Devon. She promised she wouldn’t give up.

Billy was back upstairs recording his podcast. He said Lily was a rock star who came up with big ideas that change the world. One of the reasons he loved her was that she startled him in the best possible way. He said that her idea to merge Chancellor with her brother’s company was genius. He said Devon and Lily would run a powerhouse family enterprise, and that was Lily’s dream. “A dream that I don’t factor into because I’m not family in any meaningful sense. And so here I am on the outside looking in. Again. The story of my life,” Billy said.

Back at their place, Devon asked Amanda what he thought about Lily’s proposal. Amanda thought Devon raised good points about the timing. She said this was a big complicated deal, and it’d change a lot of things. He knew, and he noted that if he took this deal, he wouldn’t be the boss of his own company anymore. Amanda thought she could picture a plan that would let Lily and Billy share responsibilities while maintaining control of what they already did. She said this would be big, complicated and messy, but that was what families were like. She knew she didn’t have much experience with families, but she knew what he’d told her about Neil. When she thought about turning Chancellor Industries and Hamilton Winters into a cohesive family business, it sounded pretty wonderful to her.

At the Abbott house, Traci checked on Jack, who was adjusting to the loss of his son, Keemo. Jack was having a hard time wrapping his head around the fact that Keemo was gone and they’d never be able to make peace. He’d been going over the correspondence and documents going back to the time Christine and Paul sought Keemo out. When Jack first learned he’d had a son, it’d felt like a miracle. Jack thought about the last emails when Keemo said he wanted nothing to do with him, he didn’t want to be an Abbott, and he was changing his name to Nguyen. Phyllis came to check on Jack and asked if she could do anything for him. “Can you bring my son back?,” he blurted out. He apologized, and she told him it wasn’t necessary.

It was so hard when Keemo slammed the door on Jack. Jack had held out hope that Keemo would come back to him in time. It didn’t happen, and now Keemo was gone without Jack ever really getting the chance to be a father to him. He wasn’t sure how to grieve. Phyllis told Jack there was no rule book – he could feel how he felt. Traci said there was no timetable either. She likened the situation to their grief over Dina’s death. Jack said this was different because they knew Dina was ill, and they had time to prepare. Phyllis told Jack that no one would judge him for the situation with Keemo. She said that the blame, shame and regret wouldn’t help. He wasn’t sure anything would. He read the last email from Keemo again. Keemo didn’t want anything to do with Jack, because he was angry Jack hid Keemo’s mother’s illness.

Jack was almost in tears. Traci tried to commiserate because she knew what it was like to lose a child. Jack didn’t want to equate his loss to Traci’s. He noted that Traci shaped and raised Colleen, and they had a beautiful bond built for years. Jack, on the other hand, didn’t even know Keemo existed until he was an adult. Traci told Jack that everything was relative – he was grieving, and this was a tremendous loss. Phyllis said they had to find out who sent those text messages – who would want Jack to find out about Keemo this way, and who would send such creepy cryptic texts about something so personal.

Phyllis noted that one of the texts said “come to LA there’s something you’re missing.” She wondered why someone who wanted to tell Jack that his son was dead would use that tone. Jack said it could be someone who was a total sociopath. Phyllis said there was no evidence of that, but it was worth looking into. This piqued Traci’s writer’s imagination. Phyllis said this texter knew Hao Nguyen was Keemo Volien Abbott, and they also had Jack’s phone number. Traci was worried someone was trying to mess with Jack.

Phyllis thought there had to be more to this than someone wanting Jack to know about Keemo. She suggested that there was a mystery surrounding Keemo’s death. Jack pointed out that the obituary said it was a heart attack. Phyllis knew, but she suggested something happened in Keemo’s life that this person wanted Jack to know. Traci asked why this person wouldn’t just say what they wanted to say instead of sending these texts like it was a treasure hunt. She thought it was cruel. Jack said he had to do something, because he needed answers about Keemo’s life. Traci wanted Jack to take a step back. Jack responded to the text asking who this person was and why they were sending him this information.

Get to Los Angeles. The answers are there,” the person replied. Phyllis thought it was clear that Jack needed to go to L.A. but Traci didn’t agree. She thought some scammer was trying to take advantage of Jack’s grief. She said anyone with good intentions would identify themselves. She told him to let it go. Phyllis argued that Jack couldn’t let it go. If it were Phyllis getting these texts, she’d be on the first flight to LA. Traci said Jack wasn’t impulsive like Phyllis. Jack felt like he had to follow up on these texts even if they lead him nowhere. Traci was worried Jack would get hurt. He said his heart was already broken over Keemo. The questions weren’t going to go away, and if there were answers to be had, he was going to find them.

With Jill’s approval, Lily suggested that she and Devon merge Chancellor Industries and Hamilton Winters. Devon wasn’t ready to do something like that. Imani talked Amanda into bringing her along to the meeting with Lily, Devon, Billy and Amanda. Imani ruffled Amanda’s feathers when she spoke out of turn at the meeting. Lily told Neil she wasn’t giving up her plan to merge the companies. Billy thought to himself that Lily’s idea was genius, but if she and Devon were running a powerhouse family business, Billy would be on the outside looking in, because he wasn’t family.

Traci and Phyllis were there for Jack, as he worked through his feelings surrounding the death of his estranged son, Keemo. Phyllis thought Jack needed to go to LA and figure out who was sending him those cryptic texts and how this person was connected to Keemo. Traci didn’t want Jack to go, because she was worried this was a scammer. Jack decided that he wanted to seek answers. He sent a text to the mysterious person, and they told him again to come to LA.

Victor: I would like you to smooth things over with Adam, alright? Not only in Newman/Locke’s best interest, but in yours, as well, to make sure that the merger with ChanceCom goes smoothly.

Victoria: So, what should i do, dad? Should I tie him to a chair? Lock him in the office? What?

Victor: Try to make him feel welcome and appreciated and respected.

Victoria: Oh, I see. So, you want me to stroke his fragile ego.

Victor: My darling, let me teach you a little lesson. As CEO, you need to be able to deal with the entire executive staff, even with people who disagree with you, alright? And you tell Ashland about that, as well.


Victoria: What are you suggesting?

Ashland: I’m suggesting that we change my title. Now, advisor made sense when we were first merging the companies. There was little hope then that I could do anything else.

Victoria: Honestly, Ashland, does it really matter what your title is? We’re both — we’re both running this company.

Ashland: It will matter to other people, especially when I start taking on more responsibility. Don’t you see that? That’s why I was so upset on the phone before — because that was the legal department. They were giving me a hard time about — about making a small change on a relatively unimportant matter.

Victoria: Well, who are you dealing with? I will call them, and I will explain the situation.

Ashland: No, no, no. I really don’t want you to do that. I need to be respected on my own right, in this building and out there in the world. And that’s what a title does. It will also send a message that I’m not some sickly old man on his way out.

Victoria: Oh, come on. I think you’re making a big deal out of a very small issue. It’s obvious that you’re the strong, smart businessman that you’ve always been.

Ashland: No. That reputation you just described — I lost that because of the illness. I need to get that back if I’m gonna operate at full capacity. I am proposing that we change my title to co-CEO. Now, we can have a provision in there in case something goes wrong, if my condition changes and I need to step back or, God forbid, step out entirely. But this makes sense. What do you think? Do you have a problem with sharing the work? Do you have a problem with sharing the title?

Billy: Hey, there. Mind if I join you?

Ashland: You are free to sit wherever you like.

Billy: [ Groans ] So what’s on the agenda for this beautiful day?

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Uh-oh, are you having a hard time trying to figure out what to eat for breakfast? You look like a villain in a superhero movie, planning world domination. Or maybe you’re just plotting your next move at Newman/Locke.

Ashland: “Plotting”? Well, that sounds a lot like an accusation.

Billy: Well, I hear your medical situation is improving. Congratulations on that. But I got to believe that you’re trying to figure out what to do next with this future that you didn’t expect to have, and I’m a bit of a betting man, but I’m gonna say that you are itching to get a lot more control out of your wife’s company. Get a lot more Locke in Newman/Locke


Billy: I don’t think I would call them baseless, Ashland. In fact, I’m gonna give you a little bit of credit. You built an empire that you basically ran by yourself for a number of years, so I just find it hard to believe that you’re gonna simply be an advisor to your wife. And don’t get me wrong, okay? Don’t start talking about how marriage is sacrifice and all that kind of stuff, because I do believe that’s true for a lot of people, but not for the Locke-ness monster. No, no, you have way too much to say. How is work going, by the way? It’s good? I know you like to flip coins. Is that how you decide who handles what division?

Ashland: We’re handling things just fine, thank you.

Billy: I’m sure that’s what you want Victoria to think. You know, she has waited her entire life to get control of Newman. And you just threw a big, old wrench into her plans by sticking around longer than she expected. I’m sure that makes for interesting dinner talk.

Ashland: [ Laughs ] I’m guessing you think you’re going to shock me with your macabre sense of humor, but you know something? A guy like me doesn’t reach the heights I have while maintaining some kind of delicate sensibility. I will say this, though. I think I understand why you have such a bitter view of marriage, given your sordid history.

Interview with actors from “Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber”

TV Interview!

The cast of "Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber"

Interview with actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kyle Chandler and Uma Thurman; and EP/Writers Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Beth Schacter of “Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber” on Showtime by Suzanne 2/23/22

It was great to speak to the actors from the show on this TCA press panel. I just love the episodes I saw in advance. I’m a huge fan of Kyle Chandler, so I was very happy to ask him a question. It really made my day.

Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber
Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Star (he/him)
Kyle Chandler, Star (he/him)
Uma Thurman, Star (she/her)
Brian Koppelman, Executive Producer/Writer (he/him)
David Levien, Executive Producer/Writer (he/him)
Beth Schacter, Executive Producer/Writer (she/her)

Virtual via ZoomFebruary 23, 2022

My question was to everyone, but only the actors answered (which is fine). I told them that I wanted to start with Kyle because I’ve been a big fan of his ever since his first show, “Homefront,” which aired from 1991-1993. I asked whether doing the series has “colored” their “perception of ride share” and whether they stopped taking Uber or Lyft (if they took it before). I thought it was a fairly unusual question, and those can go either way.

Kyle answered that he hasn’t “boycotted ride share. I like walking but not that much.” He noted that he was using Uber before he learned this story. We use these gadgets in our lives, and we don’t really think about where they come from, and Uber is an example of that sort of thing. He said, “I still don’t technically understand how a needle in a groove of a piece of vinyl puts that sound through let alone a lot of other things, but it’s all like magic.” What he finds interesting about the show is that they go into the company to see what makes it all work, including the “power plays,” the politics, and the personalities of the people involved, everything “from money and information and privacy and all of the other things that are involved in this show.” The book amazed him, so he wanted to be part of it for that reason, he reiterated.

Joe said that he hasn’t ridden in Uber in the US since the pandemic started, but he did admit that he’s used Postmates, which Uber owns. He admitted that he feels a bit guilty when he does it, too. However, he pointed out (which I should have mentioned, too, so I was kicking myself), that the Uber company has changed a lot in recent years, since this story happened. He said, “they’ve cleaned up their act,” but “unfortunately, their stock price and their growth has gone down. And, to me, that gets back to this larger problem” of rewarding companies for the wrong reasons. Uber has grown up and is “perhaps a bit less predatory,” yet “it hasn’t been rewarded by our economy. Why doesn’t our economy reward a company for doing that? It should.” I should have said, “Well, Joe, that’s capitalism for ya,” but I didn’t.

Brian joked to Joe that next time he gets into an Uber car, he should record with his phone the Uber driver seeing him getting into the car (to see if he recognizes him from the show). Joe replied that he will do that.

Uma admitted that after she read the book, she downloaded the Curb app, for use in getting a New York City yellow cab (instead of using Uber). She agreed with Joe’s point and said that since Uber’s value has gone down, they’re now charging more for rides. She pointed out that this is fine if the money is going to the drivers, but their business is “unregulated,” so we don’t know if that’s true or not.

Next, the panel was asked why they think we’re seeing more “true stories” now, especially those involving companies? Brian Koppelman answered for all of them that they weren’t thinking about what the latest trend was when they developed the show from “incredible book,” which he noted was written by Mike Isaac, a “journalist.” They read the book and decided that it’s an “incredibly important” and has characters that are “amazing and compelling.” The characters had lofty goals that led to them “often deciding that doing that thing justified all manners of behavior.” It’s coincidentally “set in the tech world” and is “about entrepreneurship,” which is intriguing.

The show was compared to their other show, “Billions,” which the reporter felt was very similar. David Levien and Brian were asked if writing that other show helped them with writing this new show, or if they felt that they just had a “natural affinity for writing” them. David pointed out that they’re the same people writing for both shows, so they just naturally had some similarities. He feels that both sets of wealthy characters act as if their jobs put them in a “life and death situation.” Their “stakes are high” because the success of their companies is “in the core of their” identities.

The reporter suggested that these characters seems to have a different “moral compass” than the rest of us, since their success is more “driven by money.” They care more about whether they’re successful than what effect it has on people. Brian acknowledged that they’re definitely interested in that aspect of the characters. The reporters also asked if the real-life Bob Gurley was advising them in any way, since he seems to be shown in a more positive aspect. Brian replied that he was not. David credits Kyle Chandler for the reason Gurley comes off so well. Kyle asked exactly what question was being asked of him (because it was a bit confusing at this point). The reporter re-phrased his question to ask whether Kyle was playing Gurley as “very level headed” on purpose, or whether it’s just the way the script is written. Kyle answered that he’s just following the way it’s written. He added that they did discuss how the characters act, and also did his own research about what Gurley has said in public, and he also asked tech friends of his about him, and people who knew him. He feels that the entire situation was stressful for Gurley.

Brian also illustrated for us how the original book really shows Gurley in this way, that he’s faced with a “moral choice” in his situation with Travis and Uber. His choice does “serve him,” but he believes that, based on their research, as well as the book, that it’s a “fairly accurate representation of what happened.” Kyle also chimed in again to say that reading the book made him want to be a part of this show. It does have a “fantastic story,” which makes the characters come alive “in a very fascinating way. It surprised him that he didn’t already know the story and that neither do a lot of people. He thinks that this is what will make it a “great success,” in part.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt put in his two cents about the reporters’ comments about “prioritizing money and profit over everything else” and how what a corporation does might have a negative impact on many people. In this case, it was the drivers and employees. He’s glad she asked these questions because it was the “most important about this story” for him. He feels that not only should they be looking at the moral compass of the characters, but also at that of our country and economy. He pointed out that a lot of entrepreneurs in startups are put in this position where, if they don’t grow a lot, they “lose the game.” Making money is not good enough to get “venture capital investment.” They’re not rewarded for regular success by the economy. Only “unicorns” are rewarded in that way, and usually you have be manipulative and “predatory.” He feels that many of these companies have good intentions but end up doing more harm than what they wanted to do, and Uber is “a really dramatic example of that. He added that there are many such examples in the tech and general business world. He spoke passionately about how we need to change the incentives so that companies can be successful when they do “the right thing” and are “kind and good to people” as well as considering “the long term future.” We’ll keep having companies causing harm until that’s changed. For him, the biggest issue is that this problem is larger than just what happened at Uber.

Beth answered the question about why the tech business seems a field that’s more “ripe” for this type of behavior (these cons), why it seems to be more “white men” who are behind it and why a second season might have more diversity behind it. He also asked Uma Thurman about how she went about perfecting Arianna Huffington’s voice.

Beth asserted that Travis was not a “con man” — He did achieve success with Uber. It’s the way he went about it that was wrong and that we want to change. She agrees with Joe that this should be a “global responsibility.” We use something in our phone for something, in our lives, and we don’t think about how it got there. She did mention that she loves a good con game story, but this isn’t it. She isn’t sure why Silicon Valley seems to have so many of these stories, but she’s glad they were able to make this show, which points out why it’s “such a bad idea” to achieve success in this way. She spoke as well about lack of diversity in the business world. She doesn’t know what has caused this, but she knows that “it leaves some of the most brilliant minds of any generation behind.” Their story shows that supporting companies like Uber devalues the brilliance of those who are left out.

Uma answered her question. She listened “endlessly” to the real Arianna Huffington in order get her voice right. She declared that “the pandemic is good for prep.” She found how Arianna “expresses herself verbally” to be really interesting.

Another reporter wondered whether “Super Pumped” will be used in future seasons, when they’re talking about different companies. Brian cracked that the “subtitle for the second season definitely won’t be ‘The Battle for Uber,’ I promise.” He discussed the marketing a little bit. He confirmed that they’ll probably keep “Super Pumped” for future seasons.

A journalist told Joe that he or she enjoyed that Travis had so many “different layer” and the chemistry that he had with Kyle. He/she asked him what it was like to portray Travis, who’s the villain of the series but was also able to accomplish a lot. Joe replied that he really worked hard to “achieve that complexity” and show that a real person made this happen. He believes that people are “complicated” – that “Nobody is a perfect saint or a perfect sinner.” Travis is a great combination of both. After reading the book and doing his research, he wanted to know what he was really like. He was surprised to learn that a lot of people spoke very highly of him and about all of the things he accomplished.

Uma was asked about portraying Arianna and all the different sides of her. Uma met Arianna and heard a lot about her from other people. She knows that Uma is very bold and had to do things in her own way.

Another reporter asks for the actors to relate what it’s like to play real people that they could run into any minute. Joe mentioned again that he wanted to portray Travis as a real person, so he hoped that he’ll like his portrayal. Uma doesn’t think most people would like to see themselves portrayed by others, regardless of how they’re shown to be. She just went by the script and made it work the best she could. Kyle doesn’t remember playing a real life character who’s still alive. He just realized that he couldn’t do a real portrayal, so he had to fill in his own gaps of what the person is like. Kyle made the joke that he hopes Bob Gurley isn’t too annoyed with him because he’s a very tall Texan, so he’s not sure he could outrun him. He also implied that there might be a fight.

Another journalist compared Travis to Cathcart of “Catch 22” and Bob Gurley to Yossarian. Kyle admitted that he hadn’t thought of them in that way. He was asked why he took the role. He liked the role and thought it was “an absolute incredible story, and I wanted to be part of it.” He referred to it as a “pure Americana story.” He was fascinated by the characters and that he hadn’t heard the story before.

A reporter pointed out that Uber is often thought of as a villain because they’ve ruined some people’s lives. David Levien agreed with that point. The next reporter asked about casting. David agreed that they were lucky to have many wonderful actors. Brian acknowledged that they were able to get their first choice on each part. It all happened very quickly. The reporter added that he liked seeing all of the “Billions” actors who appear in the series. Another journalist also enjoyed the similarities to “Billions,” citing the “rapid fire dialogue” and “pop culture references.” He also loved the music used in the show and asked how they keep the two separate.

Brian just replied that they’re not intentionally doing anything like “Billions.” It’s just that they write both, so both has their “voice” and it’s “recognizable.” He maintained that the actors are different in each show, so they have their own “timing” and “approach.” They’re not thinking about it at all as being similar to “Billions.” The same reporter also asked whether the second season will have a similar voice. Beth had a great answer: “We hope so. If not, then we’ve all really screwed up.”

Another reporter also asked about the soundtrack, which had many Pearl Jam songs. Pearl Jam doesn’t allow their music to be used a lot in projects, so he asked them to talk about their relationship with the group, and what music would they use if Pearl Jam decided not to let them use their music. Brian said they only wanted Pearl Jam and had no alternative. He gave a long answer about how they told Pearl Jam they wanted to use their music, and why. They gave them info about the show, the book, and some of the scripts. They’re thrilled to have Pearl Jam on their show. He added, “in this challenging environment, the pandemic environment of trying to make television, that was one of the easier parts of this and, I will say, brought us an amazing amount of joy and does each time.”

Joe was asked how he deals with people like Travis in real life, and how does he judge them before he plays them for a role. Joe answered that he doesn’t think you should judge a character you’re playing. He tries to “empathize” with them instead, even when he’s played some people that have done “far worse things than anything Travis ever did.” He loves acting because he can put himself in the shoes of “such a wide variety of people.” Also, he said that we all have the potential to be the villain. As he pointed out, “It’s a basic primal-animal thing to want to just take and get what you want, and who cares what that means to anybody else.” Travis acted that way more than most us do, so that was fun for him to play. He was indulging his “inner beast.” He thinks that’s fun to watch, too, because we all have that same beast potential within us, like when we’re watching mobster movies. He hastened to add that “it’s a good thing we don’t all act like that because our civilization would collapse, and that’s probably why our civilization is collapsing. We are all seeing that more and more.”

The reporter asked Joe if he tries to figure out what corrupts them. Joe mused that the “Super Pumped” story progresses in the seven episodes in a certain way. Travis starts out as “well meaning” and then, after he becomes successful, he hires people who won’t push back at him. He views people like Bob Gurley as an enemy, which he believes is “fascinating to see.” He thinks it’s hard to have people around us who might argue with us, “but it’s really important to keep your grasp on reality. You need to expose yourself to people who see the world differently than you, who might disagree with you, who might think you are wrong. And we could all probably use a little more of that in our lives. And watching Travis’s rise and then fall is, I think, watching someone who doesn’t have anyone around him anymore who will disagree with him.”

Another journalist also loves “Billions” and wonders if this show is just as challenging as that one. He also asks Joe if he watches “Billions” for fun, since he’s also an “entrepreneur.” Joe laughed that he watches “Billions” so that he can “figure out what not to do as a business person.”

Beth answered that with “Super Pumped,” they have the book to guide them. With “Billions,” they were able to create the whole thing from the start. As writers, they had to sit down and figure out which parts of the book “really hit us in the gut.” They’re using the same muscles as they do on “Billions” to try figure out what story “would be exciting for these characters.”

Joe was asked by a journalist why power often corrupts (this being a lot of the focus in the show). Joe gave a very interesting answer: “We all walk around with part of our brains that basically work the same as dogs, and then part of our brains that are something that dogs can’t do, meaning we’ve got our animal part of ourselves and then our more cerebral part of ourselves. And I think if a dog had the opportunity to be in charge of all of the dogs, it would be no matter what, and it would fight tooth and nail to keep that power.” And it takes the “more cerebral outlook” to think about it first, saying that if “I just get obsessed with power, this isn’t going to turn out well for all of these people or maybe even myself.” In conclusion, he said, “And, yeah, you see powerful people over and over again get seduced by their dog brains, and I guess it’s just a challenge to rise above it.”

Uma simply said, when asked, that she didn’t know the answer to the question. Kyle loved what Joe said about the dog heads. He conveyed that “watching the news and everything going on, to see the guys walking around the world with their dog heads on and the other people walking around, willing to give up something of themselves to keep things peaceful in the world. But I love that image, Joe. That’s great. I loved your explanation. I’ll stick with everything this guy says.” Uma also agreed with Joe as well. Then there was a lot of laughing from the panel.

The next journalist asked about the idea of “disruptors and disruption” being new to the tech world back when Uber started and asked how wary we should be of these type of buzz words that we see on social media – are they “a scam”, or from “a genuine attempt to progress things?”

Brian thinks that VC’s still use the word disruptors in this business context and it will continue to be used.

Since Joe has used social media and for a long time, he was asked how he thinks it was corrupted or whether the business model was changed. Joe seemed to really like his question. He still believes that there are “positive outcomes” “from using digital technology to bring people together.” There can be problems when someone gets rich from using “those connections through mass surveillance and advertising, which is what you are seeing from the biggest, most successful social media companies nowadays. I think we probably need to make laws against that kind of business, and I hope that’s something our generation can figure out.”

When asked if there really is any privacy, Joe replied that he thinks it’s “a personal choice.” He finds privacy to be important to his life. He loves performing, but he wants boundaries between that and his private life. He noted, “That’s really important for my sanity.” He worries a bit about how so many younger people put their lives out on the net so easily.

Another question was asked about whether it’s more difficult to play a real person or a made-up person. Kyle stated that he thinks there is “a lot less responsibility when you are creating a character.” They go about it in a different way. Also, if you’re playing someone who’s still alive, you “have to be creative and use your imagination” to fill in any blanks. He felt like someone was looking over his shoulder when he was playing Bob.

Uma added that, she believes “you have to have a little bit of humility” because sometimes you might be wrong. She pointed out that if someone has inspired drama or art about them, then they’re already “unique.” She thinks that it’s a “creative process” and that you just go forward and “hope for the best.”

Joe agreed with Kyle. When being an actor, you have to ask yourself how you would play it, and you have a real person, but you can’t ever really be that person. You can only interpret them the best you can.

The final question, believe it or not, was about “assholes.” In the TV show, Joe’s character, Travis, asks potential employees if they’re an asshole or not. He hires them if they admit to being an asshole. The journalist asks what the word means in “this tech space” but also, what does it mean to them?

David gave a very practical answer. They used the word to show that Travis is a “brash” person who does unexpected things. He’s using the word to ask whether the person is going to do what he needs to be done, and to make the company win, without worrying about being nice. He said, “it’s also a shorthand and reflective of the digital world of just cutting to the chase and finding out if this person is the right kind of person to do the job there.”

Joe wanted to remind us that the real Travis really did ask that question. It’s mentioned in the book.

To finish the panel, Brian told us that they’re still pinching themselves about getting this incredible group of actors. He gushed, “We are so excited. Every single one of them has delivered so incredibly well and so hard for us.” He thanked everyone.

BILLIONS® Executive Producers Brian Koppelman, David Levien and Beth Schacter To Serve as Executive Producers and Showrunners

SUPER PUMPED: THE BATTLE FOR UBER To Premiere on Sunday, February 27 on SHOWTIME

LOS ANGELES – February 15, 2022 – SHOWTIME has renewed the new anthology series SUPER PUMPED for a second season, to be based on Mike Isaac’s next book, a deep dive into Facebook’s transition from groundbreaking startup to the power it has become. The new season will focus on the relationship at the center of that metamorphosis –  between Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg –  and the world-changing forces unleashed, intentionally and unintentionally, as a result. The second season pickup comes ahead of the premiere of the first installment SUPER PUMPED: THE BATTLE FOR UBER, based on Isaac’s bestselling book, which is set to debut on Sunday, February 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Each season of the SUPER PUMPED anthology series, featuring an entirely new cast of actors, will explore a story that rocked the business world to its core and changed culture. As in season one, Brian Koppelman and David Levien (BILLIONS, Rounders) and Beth Schacter (BILLIONS) will executive produce, write and serve as showrunners on the series. Paul Schiff will also serve as executive producer. The anthology series is produced by SHOWTIME and is part of Koppelman and Levien’s overall deal with the network.

The first installment, starring Emmy® winner Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Trial of the Chicago 7), Emmy winner Kyle Chandler (Bloodline, Friday Night Lights) and Oscar® and Emmy nominee Uma Thurman (Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction), SUPER PUMPED:THE BATTLE FOR UBER tells the story of one of Silicon Valley’s most successful and most destructive unicorns, Uber. The season pivots on Travis Kalanick (Gordon-Levitt), Uber’s hard-charging CEO who was ultimately ousted in a boardroom coup, and his sometimes tumultuous relationship with his mentor Bill Gurley (Chandler), the plainspoken, brilliant Texan venture capitalist who bets his sterling reputation on Uber’s success – and then has to live with the consequences. Thurman stars as Arianna Huffington, the savvy businesswoman and co-founder of The Huffington Post, who was an Uber board member. The SHOWTIME series will depict the roller-coaster ride of the upstart transportation company, embodying the highs and lows of Silicon Valley. Even amid the radical upheaval generated within the global tech capital, Uber stands out as both a marvel and a cautionary tale, featuring internal and external battles that ripple with unpredictable consequences. Academy Award® nominee Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas), Kerry Bishé (Halt and Catch Fire, PENNY DREADFUL®: CITY OF ANGELS), Jon Bass (Miracle Workers), Bridget Gao Hollitt (Home and Away) and Babak Tafti (Succession) also star.

    “48 Hours” Investigates in “What Ally Kostial Didn’t Know”
    When investigators found the body of Ally Kostial, a student at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, in July 2019 near a remote fishing camp not far from campus, they wondered why someone would so brutally take the life of the 21-year-old. Kostial, originally from St. Louis, Mo., who was studying business and marketing, was shot at least nine times.
    48 HOURS and Michelle Miller, co-host of CBS SATURDAY MORNING, investigate the murder of Kostial and the digital trail investigators followed to find her killer, in “What Ally Kostial Didn’t Know,” to be broadcast Saturday, March 5 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streamed on Paramount+. Prosecutors say this case raises questions about missed warning signs in relationships and whether the murder could have been prevented.
    Investigators were able to track Kostial’s life before her death through her Apple Watch, which stored text messages, leading Lafayette County sheriff’s deputies to fellow student Brandon Theesfeld. He was arrested three days after Kostial was found.
    “The hardest thing is to go back and read her messages,” says Lafayette County district attorney Ben Creekmore.
    Theesfeld’s attorney Tony Farese calls the case “a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.”
    48 HOURS: “What Ally Kostial Didn’t Know” is produced by Marcelena Spencer and Susan Mallie. Ryan Smith is the development producer. Iris Carreras is the field producer. Phil Tangel, Richard Barber and Wini Dini are the editors. Anthony Batson is the senior broadcast producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive story editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.
    48 HOURS is broadcast Saturdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT, on CBS, and streams anytime on Paramount+. There’s also a new way to watch 48 HOURS. You’ll find us on the CBS News Streaming Network Wednesdays at 8:00 PM, ET. Download the CBS News app on your phone or connected TV.

General Hospital Updates

Update written by Dustin

Anna and Drew locate the crashed cars that have been abandoned by Maxie, Felicia and Peter. Peter catches up to Maxie as she flees the scene. He tells her to turn around and come with him or he’ll shoot her. Maxie tells Peter she would rather die than live her life with him. Peter raises the gun to shoot Maxie, but Felicia comes from behind him and strikes him in the head with the tire iron from the rental car. Peter falls down an embankment and comes to rest on his back in the snow. Maxie and Felicia rush down to secure the gun Peter had in his possession as Anna and Drew arrive on the scene. Anna tells Maxie, Felicia and Drew that they can go on ahead, and she’ll wait for the ambulance. Peter begs Maxie to stay with him and tells her that he can’t feel his legs. However, the three of them do as Anna has requested.

Anna kneels down beside Peter as Peter realizes that Anna never placed the call for an ambulance. Anna intends to let Peter die from his injuries. Peter reaches up, and Anna takes his hand as he draws his last breath. Anna then closes his eyes, checks for a pulse and bursts into tears. She then rejoins the others, who are waiting back at the crash scene for the police. Felicia notices something is off with Anna, so she questions her. Anna reveals that she never called for an ambulance. Felicia says that Peter was a monster and that she agrees with Anna’s decision. Felicia phones Mac at General Hospital to let him know that she has found Maxie and that Peter is finally dead.

Brook Lynn and Chase take Bailey (Louise) to General Hospital to see Mac. While there, they share their first kiss. Afterwards, Brook Lynn seems troubled.

Sonny and Carly meet in Carly’s office with their respective attorneys to negotiate the terms of their divorce. Both Sonny and Carly want the divorce to be amicable and without a lengthy, courtroom battle. However, they immediately have a disagreement over who will keep their main house – where Donna and Avery reside. Sonny refuses to let Carly have it, but after a private chat between the two of them, Sonny relents and agrees that Carly having the house will probably be better for the girls. He is upset with himself that he has done permanent damage to the family. An agreement is reached and both parties consent to allowing the attorneys to draft the final divorce papers.

Sonny leaves Carly’s office, very upset, and goes to Charlie’s bar for a drink. He runs into Brando, who notices he looks like he could use someone to talk to. Sonny confesses that he and Carly are filing for divorce, and he tells Brando that he should make a grand gesture to Sasha. He suggests that Brando take her away to Niagara Falls for a romantic weekend getaway.

Sasha calls an after-hours business meeting with Nina and Lucy. She wishes to discuss some new ideas about their company. While at Kelly’s for the meeting, she runs into a former associate, and it’s revealed that she used to provide Sasha with drugs back when she was an addict. The dealer offers to hook Sasha up, but Sasha politely tells her she is not an addict anymore.

Brando arrives at Kelly’s and breaks up the ladies’ meeting a bit early. He asks Sasha to go away with him to Niagara Falls, and Sasha agrees. Later, after Brando leaves, Sasha goes back into Kelly’s and asks the drug dealer for something that will help her get through the next few days.

Meanwhile, at Kelly’s, a conversation between Trina, Esme and Josslyn gets nasty, with Josslyn accusing Esme of being jealous that Spencer bought Trina a gift before leaving for his incarceration. Trina feels slighted because Josslyn used her to make her point that Esme’s attempts to get into Trina’s good graces are less than genuine. Trina storms out of the restaurant angrily after telling Josslyn that everything is fine between them. Esme is furious and prepares to leak the sex tape that she made of Josslyn and Cameron in bed during their weekend getaway at Sonny’s cabin.

Back at General Hospital, Britt and Austin discuss what will happen between Austin and Maxie when Maxie returns to Port Charles.

Sonny prepares to leave Charlie’s and is clearly inebriated, but he convinces himself that he’ll be fine because his place is “not that far away.” As he prepares to leave, Nina arrives at the bar. She has obviously checked the many voice messages that Sonny has left her while in his inebriated state.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[Brooke sighs]

Ridge: I love you with everything. We can’t do this anymore, we can’T. You will always be my logan.



Steffy: Hey, dad. You’re here.

Ridge: Uh yeah, I thought I’d come in, do some work. How you doing?

Thomas: Just uh, texted mom. Said she hadn’t heard from you.

Steffy: Yeah, when you left her earlier, you said you were going to talk to brooke.

Thomas: What’s going on?

Sheila: Hey, sourpuss. Come on, why so grim?

Deacon: You’ve got to start hanging out somewhere else.

Sheila: Oh, but then I’d miss you in action and I gotta tell you what? That apron is working for me.

Deacon: Sheila, how many times do I have to tell you? We can’t be seen together. Brooke could come in any minute.

Sheila: Well, does that mean that you want to go back to my place so that we can have a little privacy?

Deacon: Mm. Tempting, but I think have to wash my hair tonight and I’m working now, so…

Sheila: Can you take a break? Maybe we can go back to your broom closet because what I want to tell you, you definitely want to hear.

Carter: Zende will never

know about us,

nobody will.

Paris: Don’t you want

to be with me as much

as I want to be with you?

Carter: You are– you’re

amazing, you’re beautiful,


We have to end our involvement.

Grace: Whatever this

is between you and paris,

it ends today or I’m

going to the forresters.

I don’t know how you got

them to forgive you for

your affair with quinn but

I doubt it will happen twice.


Carter: Paris.

Paris: Surprised to see me?

Carter: I am. What brings you by?

Paris: I couldn’t stay away any longer.

Sheila: I’m about to make you a very happy man, deacon sharpe.

Deacon: We are not going back to my room.

Sheila: That’s right, because all you can do is think about your precious brooke, right? Well, maybe, maybe that’s why I’m here. I mean, this pathetic desire that you have to rekindle your relationship with her may not be so far-fetched.

Deacon: Wait a second. Are you– are you saying that you were actually wrong about something?

[Sheila laughs mockingly]

Sheila: Go on! Go on, joke!& I just had a very interesting conversation. I think that door may be open now to brooke.

Hope: Mom! Mom?

Brooke: Oh, honey!

Hope: Mom, what happened? What is it?

Brooke: Ridge was here. He just left. And he didn’t come home last night because he was with taylor.

Thomas: Uh, you didn’t let brooke talk you into giving her another chance, did you?

Steffy: Because, dad, you know how that’s going to turn out.

Ridge: I owed her the truth. So I told her I spent the night at your house with your mom. Not an easy conversation. If you have copd, ask your doctor about breztri.

Paris: Seeing you at work is not the same and I certainly don’t get to see like that.

Carter: Paris this, uh, this won’t work. You and me, it can’t happen.

Paris: You keep saying that.

Carter: And believe me, I wish I didn’t have to. Paris, I can’t deny what I feel for you but I won’t repeat what I did to eric, the way I betrayed him and his family.

Paris: You’re not betraying anyone. Zende is seeing other people, we’re not exclusive.

Carter: But he wants to be. He was going to propose to you.

Paris: Because he misunderstood our relationship, making all those plans when the only thing I want is standing right in front of me. Carter, I want to be near you. I want to feel your arms wrapped around me. I want to feel your body pressed up against mine. I know you want that too.

Sheila: Why aren’t you jumping for joy? I mean, I mean, didn’t you hear me? You were right. The– the argument, ridge’s fit of rage, brooke coming to your defense? That was the end. Ridge is going home to taylor.

Ridge: This situation is painful for everyone involved.

Thomas: And we respect that.

Steffy: But brooke put you in this situation, remember? She’s the one who betrayed you.

Thomas: Yeah, the bottom line is you chose to be with mom and you come back to our family.

Ridge: Wellbrooke’s my family, too. We’re always going to be connected.

Steffy: Yeah but you can’t be with her anymore.

Thomas: Yeah, she broke your trust too many times. I mean, she slept with deacon. Dad, you can’t go back to her. Dad?

Ridge: She didn’t sleep with deacon and I know this is important to you and I appreciate your loyalty to your mother, but I don’t want to answer any more questions. Thanks.

Brooke: Ridge is already moving on. I mean, they’ve been kissing and everything. I can’t believe it.

Hope: I didn’t want to believe it either. Steffy told me that ridge and taylor were together.

Thomas: Dad, you ended things with brooke. Yeah?

Steffy: We don’t expect you to be overjoyed about this. Telling brooke must have been hard, but it is for the best. I mean, you’re coming home to safety and security. I truly believe that.

Thomas: Yeah, and and you believe that, too.

Steffy: There’s something I, uh, I need to take care of.

Thomas: Okay.

Taylor: Hey, sweetheart.

Steffy: Mom, mom, it happened.

Taylor: What happened?

Steffy: Dad spoke with brooke, it’s over. I think it’s over between them. Can you come by the office now? Dad needs you. Does sinus congestion and pressure make breathing feel impossible especially at night?

Paris: We’re not committed to anyone else so we could be together, if we want to be.

Carter: Paris, we already talked about this.

Paris: Okay, but you never explained why. I know that you don’t want to upset zende and the forresters. You’re trying to protect my career.

Carter: Yes, all of that’s true.

Paris: But it shouldn’t be more important than the way we feel about each other. Why are we denying ourselves something that feels so right? We could be so good together, carter. We just have to trust this connection and chemistry. Why are you trying to end things before it even starts?

Carter: It’s already gone too far.

Paris: [Scoffs] What, what what does that even mean?

Carter: It’s over.

Grace: Good.

But I’ll be watching, carter.

Make sure you stay

away from my daughter.

Paris: What’s going on, carter? Be honest. I need to know.

Deacon: So, taylor told you that she and ridge are back together.

Sheila: Why do you do that? Why do you question everything that I say?

Deacon: Oh, because I know how your obsessive brain works.

Sheila: Yeah, but you’re the one that told me ridge walked out on brooke.

Deacon: Yeah. And then brooke went after him.

Sheila: It doesn’t matter because he’s with taylor right now. It worked, deacon. I, I think ridge finally had enough. And with brooke coming to your defense? It just sent ridge straight into taylor’s arms.

Deacon: Wait a second. So, so ridge ran to taylor because of me?

Ridge: He can’t trust brooke anymore. No, she’s made too many mistakes and quite frankly, he thinks that you’re one of her biggest. So, come on. Good things are happening for you, and taylor and it’s all because of your drunken night with brooke.

Brooke: How could this happen? How can my whole world just fall apart?

Hope: Mom, ridge hasn’t stopped loving you.

Brooke: No, no, he hasn’T. He told me he will always love me, hope. He just can’t– he just can’t be with me. He needs peace and stability and I can’t give him that.

Hope: You know that is not true, mom. The two of you have been happy for a very long time.

Brooke: Yes. Yes, we have. So why, why did I do that? Why did I drink that night? Why did I kiss deacon? It doesn’t make sense! And I love ridge. I love him. And I can’t lose him. It can’t end this way, hope, it can’T.

Thomas: Look, we understand that this is difficult.

Steffy: I’m guessing brooke made sure of it.

Ridge: She thought we could get through this.

Steffy: A few months ago, maybe she could have convinced you to try. But things are different now. There’s another woman in your life. A woman who loves you. Always has. You have someone there that you can rely on. I’m amber, I’ve lost 128 pounds with golo,

Paris: There is no reason to hold back.

Carter: There are other things to consider, paris. Other people.

Paris: I can’t stop thinking about you. The night we had, how you held me in your arms, all the things we said to each other.

Carter: Yeah, I think about it, too.

Paris: Then what are you going to do about it? Why are you fighting this, carter? You want me as much as I want you. Don’t you?

Deacon: It’s not that I doubt you. No, actually I do doubt you but it’s just– it’s just hard to believe that ridge and brooke might finally be over.

Sheila: Yeah, well, believe it. Karma works, my friend. Everyone eventually gets what they deserve.

Deacon: So if I finally get a shot with brooke, I’ve got karma to thank.

Sheila: And me. Especially me.

Brooke: I haven’t had a drink in years, and that night I was completely out of control. How could I let it unravel like that? How? It doesn’t make any sense.

Hope: Mom, what happened, happened. And I do believe that the two of you would have gotten through it. But taylor came back to town and then steffy and thomas started pushing for their parents to be together again and…

Brooke: Right. And every second that he spends in that house, every second he spends with taylor, they are going to convince him that that is where he belongs. I just need to remind him that this is where he belongs. He belongs here in our house with me, hope. And if I don’t– if I don’t let him know that, I am going to lose him to taylor for good.

Taylor: So brooke knows that you spent the night at the house with me.

Ridge: I didn’t want her to hear it from anybody else, so yeah.

Taylor: It must have been difficult.

Steffy: And now, you can move on. You said everything that needs to be said. You can finally focus on your future. And mom. And us. I think we agreed I’m going to stay in the guest house.

Taylor: Yes, you are going to stay in the guest house. That’s a smart idea. There are a lot of complicated emotions with this. This is going to take a while, this transition.

Thomas: That makes sense. But dad was not happy with brooke, but he will be happy with us.

Taylor: Okay, I think you’re oversimplifying it just a little bit.

Steffy: But sometimes the best decisions are simple. I don’t think dad realizes that because life with brooke has never really been simple. I mean, it’s always been, like, one crisis after the next, one problem after another. Anyways, that is in your past. This is your future. And I think it’s going to be amazing.

Thomas: Yeah, you see that.

Taylor: Well, this, there’s a lot to this, okay? Your father has endured a lot with brooke. So right now, it’s not going to feel like something to celebrate.

Steffy: We love you, dad. You know you can count on us. We would never let you down. You have a woman, right here, who loves you more than anyone. Dad, we’ve watched you struggle for years, rationalizing brooke’s behavior, making excuses for her, trying to convince yourself that everything is okay. But now it is okay because you have people who truly want what’s best for you and care about your well-being. The strength of this family. Our time has come. It’s time for the forrester family to reunite. We can.

Ridge: Okay.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victor: Alright. Goodbye.

Victoria: What is this all about?

Victor: I had a meeting with adam today, and it seems that he has second thoughts about staying on at newman.

Victoria: Well, what can i say? I did as you asked. I offered to keep him on as the head of the division, but i can’t force him to stay. And I certainly don’t want a top executive who’s not happy and not fully committed.

Victor: I would like you to smooth things over with adam, alright? Not only in newman/locke’s best interest, but in yours, as well, to make sure that the merger with chanccomm goes smoothly.

Victoria: So, what should i do, dad? Should I tie him to a chair? Lock him in the office? What?

Victor: Try to make him feel welcome and appreciated and respected.

Victoria: Oh, I see. So, you want me to stroke his fragile ego.

Victor: My darling, let me teach you a little lesson. As ceo, you need to be able to deal with the entire executive staff, even with people who disagree with you, alright? And you tell ashland about that, as well.

Victoria: Ashland? Well, where’s this coming from?

Victor: It seems he let adam know in no uncertain terms that he would keep him on a short leash and, if adam didn’t like it, he could quit, he could walk.

Victoria: I’m sure that ashland was just setting some boundaries.

Victor: No one sets boundaries on my children. Do you got that? Not ashland locke, not anyone but me! Now, antagonizing adam is not a good idea, is it? Why the hell would he do that? Did he do that unilaterally, or were you part of it?

Sally: You have gone radio silent.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Sorry. I’m just thinking about the conversation I had with my father earlier. I keep replaying it in my head, wondering if I went too far.

Sally: Should I be doing the work on the chanccomm strategies we discussed for when the merger is finalized? Or are you still considering leaving newman media altogether?

[ Knock on door ]

Phyllis: Hey.

Jack: I wasn’t expecting you. Come on in.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. Um, I just want to see how you were doing.

Jack: Oh, I’ve been going over the last e-mails I got from keemo, hoping for, what, a clue?

Phyllis: Yeah. I mean, if you want any help finding out who’s sending the texts or even just someone to talk to, I just want you to know that I’m here.

Abby: Well, it looks like we all made it through the night.

Devon: The important thing is dominic made it through the night, and the nurse said that he slept peacefully.

Chance: Well, that’s a — that’s a relief. Dr. Alston said these first couple days were pretty critical.

Abby: That’s when the potential for infection and complications is the highest.

Devon: Well, I’m glad the doctor’s coming by to check on him then.

Abby: It makes me feel a little bit better that he can go through all of this in the comfort of his own home, in his own crib, surrounded by all of our love.

Devon: Yeah. We’re lucky that we had the resources to prepare both of his nurseries with the right air filters and to hire a private nurse.

Abby: Oh, yeah.

Chance: Excuse us. Hey, man, I, uh — I just wanted to let you know that I’m gonna cover the cost for the medical transport when the doctors say it’s okay for him to go over to your place. I, uh — I know you’re gonna want him over there as soon as possible.

Devon: Yeah, I appreciate that. You don’t have to do that, though.

Chance: No. I want to. It’s not about the money, and, you know, we’re in this together. You were able to give dominic that amazing gift by being able to donate, so it’s the — it’s the least I can do, right?

Devon: Yeah, but I mean you know that’s all about biology.

Chance: I know. I see how much you love our son and that you’d do anything for him. I’m really grateful for that. I am. And I hope you know I’m gonna do the same.

[ Knock on door ]

Devon: Of course.

Chance: Hey. Come on in.

Abby: Dr. Alston. Nate. Thank you so much for coming by. Dominic is up in his nursery if you want to head up there. We are so eager to make sure his recovery is going according to plan.

Nate: We’ll let you know soon.

Abby: Thank you. Hi, I’m karen.

provided by… doesn’t your family deserve the best?

Victoria: I can only imagine how adam characterized his conversation with my husband. And, yes, I was very aware of it. I showed up in the middle, and i heard more than enough.

Victor: So, are you denying that ashland reined in adam’s authority at every turn?

Victoria: Adam was testing his boundaries, and ashland let him know exactly what those boundaries would be. Adam would have autonomy within reason, but ultimately he would answer to ashland and me. And as far as adam being micro-managed, I signed off on his first major decision since the acquisition was announced.

Victor: You mean hiring that woman as coo — spectra.

Victoria: A very questionable decision, at best. So, what is the problem, dad?

Victor: The problem is that ashland is showing a degree of disrespect for adam that I don’t like.

Victoria: And that surprises you?

Victor: Have you forgotten that adam prevented your wedding from blowing up, that, although you had differences, he came to your side? He helped you and your husband have a great wedding in tuscany. Have you forgotten that?

Victoria: That doesn’t justify giving adam a free pass. And, yes, I am very happy that my wedding wasn’t derailed, but we both know why he did that. He did that because he wanted to prove his loyalty to you. And he was duly rewarded for that. I did as you asked. I kept him on as head of the division. Which, by the way, will be a much larger division once this merger goes through. But adam had to go crying back to daddy because his little feelings were hurt.

Victor: That’s not what happened.

Victoria: Honestly, dad, I know that my brother’s trying to stir up trouble.

Victor: Where’d you hear that?

Victoria: I don’t have to hear it. I know it. Now that he’s gonna be back at newman media, he’s probably looking around, remembering when he ran the whole place. He’s probably getting the itch again. I mean, it is adam that we’re talking about here. People wouldn’t be very surprised, would they?

Victor: I want you to smooth things over with adam, alright? Don’t you look for trouble where there is none. Make this work. For the good of the company, i want you to make your brother feel welcome.

Adam: Do you remember when we were talking in bed yesterday? I, uh — I found myself opening up to you about my father. And, surprisingly, you said all the things that I was feeling but I couldn’t quite articulate. That my dad asking me to spy on ashland undermined everything that I was trying to accomplish, as if my position there was contingent on me doing his bidding and not on the merit.

Sally: Yeah, as far as I’m concerned, he was way out of line.

Adam: Well, lying there with you and seeing it clearly through your eyes, I was filled with this — this righteous anger. I mean, the way that you nailed it, it made me realize all the things that I wanted to say to my father — and i did say to him.

Sally: And now you’re wondering if I steered you in an entirely wrong direction? Do you feel like I led you to do and say things that you now regret?

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Chance: Look, I know you’re worried about dominic, and trust me — I am worried, too. And I hate that I haven’t been fully there for him while I’m dealing with everything that I’m dealing with. And I’m done trying to convince myself that I can manage this all by myself because I can’T.

Abby: It just took you some time to realize that you need professional help. But now that you’ve made the decision, you’re gonna get it.

Chance: [ Sighs ] I just pray to god that our little boy’s okay.

Devon: He’s gonna be okay. He has to be.

Amanda: Listen to me. That boy is a fighter. Okay? Just like his dad. And he has been from the very moment he was born. And now he has a part of you inside of him, helping him fight this blood disorder, okay?

Devon: I just hope it’s enough.

Nate: [ Sighs ] You can relax. It’s good news.

Abby: [ Exhales heavily ]

Dr. Alston: Dominic is doing extremely well. His vitals are stable, no sign of infection. I’ve taken a few cultures to be sure, but he’s gonna make it through this just fine.

Abby: [ Laughs ]

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: [ Sighs, laughs ]

Devon: Ah. [ Chuckles ]

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Devon: Ah.

Jack: “How many times do i have to tell you to leave me alone? I don’t want anything more to do with you. I will never forgive you for hiding my mother’s illness from me. You are nothing to me.”

[ Tablet thuds ]

Phyllis: You know that’s just his pain and loss. That’s just his way of lashing out at you.

Jack: I’ve reached out to him so many different times in so many ways. He never responded.

Phyllis: Listen, I know you rejected this idea before, but, I mean, don’t you think there’s a chance that it might be keemo sending these texts? You know, maybe he wants to make amends, he wants to reconnect with you in some sort of way. I mean, if it is him… don’t you want to find out?

Jack: I’m almost afraid to hope. But, yeah. God, yeah, I want to know.

Dr. Alston: I’ve shared all this information with the nurse. We’ll be checking for any signs of infection. And of course we’ll also be on the lookout for side effects and other problems that might arise. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call.

Abby: [ Sighs ] I’m sure i will have a million, but right now I’m just feeling thankful and relieved.

Devon: Yeah. I know we all are. Thank you very much, dr. Alston.

Chance: Yeah, we really appreciate everything you’ve done for dom.

Abby: Oh, my god.

Chance: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: Can you believe it? I mean, she said he’s doing extremely well, right?

Devon: Yeah, yeah, she did say it. Let’s go see him.

Chance: Absolutely. Come on.

Nate: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hey. Remember, you have to be very careful of the potential for infection, especially this early in dominic’s recovery. You need to take every precaution when you’re in that room. And limit your visits, okay?

Abby: Right. We understand. Thank you.

Chance: Okay, well, uh, why don’t you go first, mom?

Nate: I got to say, you all make quite the team, the way you came together when you heard the news, three parents working together for the welfare of their child. That’s a beautiful thing.

[ Door opens ]

Nikki: Hi, darling.

Victor: Hi, sweetheart.

Nikki: I was going to ask you to join me for a bite, but it doesn’t seem like you’re in the mood. What’s going on? Was it your conversation with victoria? I just saw her leaving.

Victor: Yeah, I just heard some rather alarming news before victoria arrived… about ashland locke.

Nikki: Oh, victor, come on! You are digging into that poor man’s life again?

Victor: Sweetheart, i wouldn’t do so if I wasn’t given reason, okay?

Nikki: I just don’t understand. So he contributed to a clinic that developed a treatment that could extend his life. What is so alarming about that?

Victor: Fasten your seatbelt.

Nikki: Alright. What is it?

Victor: Michael baldwin just sent me an interview with a peruvian doctor who testified that ashland locke paid a substantial amount of money to have his medical record falsified. He didn’t have cancer.

Ashland: What is going on down there? Well, I don’t care. Just find that damn doctor before he does any more damage. No — how in the hell could you allow this to happen?

Victoria: Allow what to happen? If you have copd, ask your doctor about breztri.

Elena: So, you both ended up staying over at abby and chance’s?

Devon: Yeah. We didn’t sleep very much, though. We just stayed up all night listening for that baby monitor.

Amanda: I don’t think we would have gotten any sleep, even if we did go home.

Nate: You should have seen their tired and nervous faces when dr. Alston and I got there.

Devon: I had never been so worried.

Nate: Yeah, but you should have seen the relief when we delivered the good news about how well the baby was doing.

Elena: Well, that’s what i like to hear. That little boy is the luckiest kid in the world. Three parents who are so committed to his well-being? Dominic must feel nothing but love.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Sharon: Hello?

Chance: Hey, sharon.

Sharon: Oh, I was hoping to hear from you, chance.

Chance: Yeah. I just wanted to follow up and see if we can meet and talk about finding me a therapist. You know, I was hoping that we could do it today if you have time.

Sharon: Oh, are you sure you want to do it today? I’ve heard that you had a few rough days.

Chance: Yeah, I need to do this right away…for my family and, uh, for my son.

Devon: Hey, nate, I want to say thank you again for having that specialist make a house call ’cause I know how busy the two of you are. So, I appreciate it.

Nate: I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Devon: Well, it’s nice having a doctor in the family.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] I, uh — I guess this is a good time as any to break the news?

Devon: About what?

Nate: Well, I know this may come as a shock, but, um, I’m making a major life and career change. After a lot of soul-searching and long discussions with elena, I’ve decided to leave medicine and go into the business world.

Ashland: There’s a problem with the contract language in the newman media acquisition. It’s nothing for you to worry about. I’m handling it.

Victoria: I worry about every aspect of newman/locke, especially when it comes to this deal.

Ashland: Yes, and that’s one of the things I love about you and that’s one of the things that makes you a force to be reckoned with, but this is a small matter for the business affairs people. It’s, uh — it’s, uh, not a thing. I’m on top of it.

Victoria: You know, I could have looked it over.

Ashland: Really, this is minor. It’s not worth distracting you from the real job you have, you know, of running the entire company.

Victoria: Alright. If you say so, but you sounded awfully heated on the phone. It sounded like it was a much bigger deal than you’re making it out to be now.

Ashland: It’s just a carrot-and-stick kind of thing. You know, sometimes people need to be shaken out of their complacency.

Victoria: Right.

Ashland: Mm. Look, I can show you the language that I’m upset about. I mean, if you want to see it, i could just make a phone call.

Victoria: No, no, of course not, no. I just thought if there was a problem, maybe I could help you with it. But in that case, I’m sure you would let me know.

Ashland: That’s what partners do.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Yes. Uh, anyway, I came to get my tablet. Don’t forget we have that meeting with the chanccomm marketing team about the merger.

Ashland: Yeah. Uh, hold on for one second. There is something we need to address.

Adam: No, you completely misunderstood. Your advice was spot on. And once again, you have proven that you do have great instincts.

Sally: Do you really mean that?

Adam: Look, don’t ever stop listening to that inner voice. You got me thinking. Walking away from newman media gets me nothing. Nothing. It only further feeds into the narrative that I am impulsive and I am reckless…

Sally: Well, it’s not always the worst qualities.

Adam: …And I shouldn’t be taken seriously.

Sally: That would be a mistake.

Adam: Mm-hmm. I mean, look, victoria and ashland — they only agreed to my staying on because it’s biding them time. It’s pretty clear when the merger goes through, they’re gonna do everything they can to push me aside. So I’m not gonna sit around and wait for them to make their move. I’m gonna make my move first. I’m gonna go on the offensive, and I’m gonna make them fail. And I’m not gonna feel bad about it because I’m pretty sure that they’re trying to do the same thing to me.

Sally: Downright machiavellian.

Adam: I am gonna tell my father that I’m gonna stay on and I’m gonna keep an eye on ashland, but I am not gonna do it for his sake. I am gonna do it for my own.

Two households.

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Up at 2:00am again?

Phyllis: Wow. Look at this. Hao nguyen owned a lot more properties besides this one that you were given.

Jack: How do you know it’s the same person?

Phyllis: I don’T. I did some cross-referencing. It’s just my guess.

[ Keys clacking ]

Jack: Oh, no.

Phyllis: What? Did you find something?

Jack: An obituary.

Phyllis: Uh, okay. Well, you said that your father-in-law died years ago.

Jack: Keemo e-mailed me that he would be taking his mother’s maiden name — nguyen. You think it’s possible he took his grandfather’s given name, hao? You think the hao nguyen we’re talking about here is my son?

Phyllis: Listen, don’t jump to conclusions, okay? Don’t do that. Okay, this obituary — I got it. I got it. Thank you. It’s so generic. I mean, it’s a very common name. There are no survivors.

Jack: Look at the date of birth. It’s the same year keemo was born. Oh, god. It says he died three weeks ago in los angeles.

Phyllis: Yeah, that’s where the texts are coming from.

Jack: Why else would someone reach out to me? Why else would somebody let me go down that path unless —

Phyllis: It could just be a coincidence, jack.

Jack: Oh, god, I want to believe that.

Phyllis: Listen. I’m gonna get all the information I can, and we’re gonna find out one way or the other, okay?

Jack: Okay.

Devon: So, when did you make this decision? ‘Cause didn’t you just become chief of surgery?

Amanda: Yeah, doctor turned businessman? Are you sure you want to do this?

Nate: Okay, let me explain. Being a surgeon was my passion. Being on the administrative side of things, not so much. Turns out dealing with all the bureaucracy is just not appealing. And, look, this is a good thing. You know, my life didn’t turn out exactly the way I planned, but that’s life, you know? And instead of just going along and accepting that this is as good as it gets for me, I’m making a change.

Amanda: But the business world, corporate america?

Devon: What prompted the whole thing?

Nate: Ashland locke.

Nikki: How reliable do you think this doctor’s word is? I mean, that ashland would pay the man to alter his medical records? It just seems so far-fetched.

Victor: Sweetheart, michael baldwin was a prosecutor, one of the sharpest legal minds around. He found the testimony credible.

Nikki: Yeah, but, I mean, who knows? This guy doesn’t even work there anymore probably. He could just be a disgruntled employee looking for money or attention or both.

Victor: I have considered all of that, okay? Let me just say that michael is continuing to investigate.

Nikki: I still don’t understand why ashland would lie about his recovery. To what end?

Ashland: When we decided to merge our companies, I was — I was fixated on cementing my legacy. My illness, the treatment I was undergoing made it impossible for me to make any significant contribution here. I couldn’t be a real partner to you.

Victoria: Well, I knew all that, and I encouraged you to leave it to me so that you could focus on getting better.

Ashland: Yes, and I so much appreciated that, but now, because of the treatment, I feel so much stronger. See, I’m ready to immerse myself in everything we’re accomplishing here. We are building something magnificent. We’re building a powerhouse right now!

Victoria: It’s very exciting.

Ashland: It’s very exciting! Yes! And I’ve been trying to carve out for myself a place where i can make more a contribution. I think you’ve been aware of that. But — but we’ve never really had a chance to discuss it in detail. This is all new for both of us. Both of us have been used to be being the heads of our own corporations, right?

Victoria: Yes. You’re right. The dynamic has changed. So, um, what are you saying?

Ashland: I’m saying that I’ve been — I’ve been running companies my entire life. It’s second nature to me. It’s an automatic reflex. But here — here, because of my illness, all I could be is an advisor, an advisory role. That’s why we set it up that way, with you as ceo and me as an advisor.

Victoria: And now you’re rethinking that?

Ashland: Victoria, this was our dream. And here we are. We’re in love. We have a close personal relationship with each other. And we are working side by side in a company that we created that bears both our names… as equals. What can I du with less asthma?

Chance: Thank you for coming by so quickly. I really appreciate it.

Sharon: Oh, yeah, of course. How’s dominic?

Abby: His recovery is going well. He’s exhausted, but the doctors are pleased with his progress.

Sharon: Oh, you must be so relieved. I know how scary it is when you have a child that’s sick.

Chance: Yeah, well, uh, he needs me to be more of father than I have been lately.

Abby: We just — we really need your guidance on this and someone for chance to talk to. And I understand why you think it should be someone else since you’re so close to the situation.

Sharon: Well, I made a list for you together, a nice list of very good therapists. Um, I think they’ll be a good match, but I’ve put my first choices at the top.

Chance: Okay.

[ Sighs ]

Victoria: What are you suggesting?

Ashland: I’m suggesting that we change my title. Now, advisor made sense when we were first merging the companies. There was little hope then that I could do anything else.

Victoria: Honestly, ashland, does it really matter what your title is? We’re both — we’re both running this company.

Ashland: It will matter to other people, especially when i start taking on more responsibility. Don’t you see that? That’s why I was so upset on the phone before — because that was the legal department. They were giving me a hard time about — about making a small change on a relatively unimportant matter.

Victoria: Well, who are you dealing with? I will call them, and I will explain the situation.

Ashland: No, no, no. I really don’t want you to do that. I need to be respected on my own right, in this building and out there in the world. And that’s what a title does. It will also send a message that I’m not some sickly old man on his way out.

Victoria: Oh, come on. I think you’re making a big deal out of a very small issue. It’s obvious that you’re the strong, smart businessman that you’ve always been.

Ashland: No. That reputation you just described — I lost that because of the illness. I need to get that back if I’m gonna operate a full capacity. I am proposing that we change my title to co-ceo. Now, we can have a provision in there in case something goes wrong, if my conditions changes and I need to step back or, god forbid, step out entirely. But this makes sense. What do you think? Do you have a problem with sharing the work? Do you have a problem with sharing the title?

Victoria: No. I’m not thinking of either of those things.

Ashland: Then I can tell that you’re hesitant. What — what is it?

Victoria: I’m really, really worried that it might worsen your condition.

Victor: Why would ashland locke lie about his recovery? My gut tells me it’s about much more than wanting to protect our daughter.

Nikki: Victor you don’t even know if you can believe the man on this video. Now, I’m not gonna have you alienating victoria by stirring up trouble in her marriage, especially when we don’t even know if this is true.

Victor: Sweetheart, don’t you worry. I’m gonna handle all this with extreme caution for victoria’s sake, alright?

Adam: Hello, nikki.

Victor: Hey, son.

Adam: Dad. Hope I’m not interrupting anything. But I wanted to let you know that I’ve done a lot of thinking since we last spoke.

Victor: So have I, son. Gordan ramsey

Jack: Wait, wait, wait. Stop there. Go back. It’s a memorial website. It’s keemo’s photo. Oh, dear god, my son is dead.

[ Breathing heavily ]

Sharon: I know the idea of talking to someone about these very personal things can feel daunting.

Chance: I guess I just don’t know what I’d say, what there even is to say. I, um… I just don’t think I have it in me, you know, whatever it is a parent’s supposed to feel. Abby’s got it. Devon has it. And I just don’t think I do.

Sharon: Listen, chance, i admire you for wanting to be a better father and a better husband. Trust me when I say these things can and will happen. First and foremost, you have to do this for yourself, and you’ve taken the first step. You know, wanting to get help — that’s a sign of strength. Don’t ever forget that.

Abby: Well, thank you for those words. I think we both really needed to hear them.

Sharon: Sure. Um, anytime you need anything, just call me. I’m happy to help. Good luck with the list.

Chance: Thank you.

Abby: Thank you so much. I’m so grateful for your help.

Sharon: Let me know how it goes.

Abby: Yeah.

Chance: Hi. Uh, this is chance chancellor. I was, um, referred to you by sharon rosales. Yes, I was hoping I could make an appointment with you. As soon as possible. Yeah, that’s, uh — that’s great. That’s perfect. Thank you. Look forward to it.

Nate: Ashland and I just kind of hit it off. It all started with me helping him through a bad moment with his illness and took off from there.

Amanda: Literally. I mean, the man did fly you and elena on his private jet to tuscany for his wedding.

Elena: Who wouldn’t hit it off with a guy like that, right?

Nate: [ Laughs ] Very funny. Listen, I know we are the unlikeliest of friends. We definitely have completely different perspectives and life experiences.

Devon: Yeah, you think?

Nate: I kind of have joked about the insufferable aspects of my new job. Ashland took it seriously. He sensed my dissatisfaction ran deep, so when he offered me the job, I thought he was joking, so I just dismissed it. But he never gave up. And he finally convinced me that, uh, making this move could be an exciting new challenge.

Elena: And I think so, too. I’m really happy for nate, and i support him 100%.

Devon: Yeah, I do, too, man. I’m just surprised that you didn’t want to come and work at hamilton-winters since neil already put on you the board. You could be a part of the family business.

Elena: Geez, nate. For someone with no experience in business, you sure are awash in offers.

Nate: Lily also offered me the opportunity to work with her at chancellor industries.

Devon: Is that right? Well, you’re just the man of the hour, aren’t you?

Nate: [ Laughs ] Listen, devon, I appreciate the offer, but, um, ashland got this ball rolling, so I feel like working with him is the best move for me.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] But i want you to understand something right now. This isn’t coming from anywhere other than my pure concern for your health. I mean, I have been going through all of this with you, and I’ve seen you. I’ve seen you trying to present this strong front to the world. And I’ve seen the toll that the chemo’s taken on you, and… I just don’t want you to push yourself too hard, that’s all. Why would we risk undoing all of the progress that we’ve made?

Ashland: Yeah. I know this has been hard on you, the fear, the worry. But I need you to understand something. Although I’m optimistic about my condition… I know the reality. I don’t believe for one second I’ve been magically cured. But I feel better now than i have in a very long time. And I want to live what’s left of my life — of our life — to the fullest extent.

Victoria: But I want you to stay healthy. Can you not understand that?

Ashland: I think it’s the work that’s making me feel better. When I have purpose, I feel more like myself. I feel stronger. I feel in control. I feel like there’s something else here, though. There’s some other thing that you’re hesitant about. What is it?

Victoria: Well, I guess you’re right. I mean, since you’re being honest, I need to be honest, too. This is about my title. I’m sorry. I guess it’s because my father put it in my head that I need to be on my guard because you’re getting better and stronger, as if you might be some kind of threat to me or the company.

[ Sighs ]

Ashland: He’s wrong about that.

Victoria: I know that, and I’m not going to pay any attention to what my father has to say about that.

[ Sighs ] I do want to be partners with you, in every way possible. I do. So…let’s do this. Let’s make it official. I am gonna have the contracts drawn up right away. Okay?

Ashland: Okay.

Victoria: But don’t get me wrong. I am still very concerned about your health. But I’m sorry I hesitated. I love you.

Ashland: I love you. And this is going to be the beginning of something very exciting.

Victoria: Yes.

Adam: I’m here to apologize, dad. I was thinking about what you said earlier. And you were right. It was hubris talking. I wasn’t thinking about family or company, loyalty. I was thinking about myself and trying to make a point and being right. You’ve given me a great opportunity, and I’m gonna make the most of it. So I’ve decided to stay on at newman media.

Victor: Glad to hear that. Have you spoken to victoria lately?

Adam: No, I haven’t seen or spoke to her today. Why? Don’t tell me that you tried to pressure her to smooth the waters over with me.

Victor: Son… all I want… is to protect my family… bring us all together.

Adam: Just so you know, I’m not gonna spy on ashland for you.

Victor: You no longer need to do that. Let me just say that things are going on at newman/locke that I’m observing very closely.

Adam: I assume this refers to what you mentioned earlier about ashland? Is there something going on with him?

Victor: I’ve even more reason to believe that I am right. But the most important thing is that I can count on you.

Adam: Absolutely.

Victor: Because, son… all hell is about to break loose.

Transcript provided by Suzanne



dante! Anna called, and she said you were both back in town, but you were a patient here at the hospital? No. No, I’m not. I’m fine. I just had to do a follow-up for the hit to the head I took.
[ Sighs deeply ] You look beautiful. Thank you. I tried to call you on the way back, but wsb was debriefing me pretty much the entire flight. Well, you’re healthy. Yeah. And that’s the most important thing. Now, will you just shut up and give me a kiss? Yes, ma’am.
Well, I know how disappointed you must be to have to postpone your trip to paris. Yeah, well, uh, yeah, willow doesn’t have a passport. She’s having a little difficulty tracking down her birth certificate. According to the state department, they have no record of me. It’s almost like… I never existed. Hey, harmony, it’s alexis. I’m just checking in on you. Oh, is that what you’re calling it now? Or are you giving me a gentle nudge in the right direction?
[ Sighs ] No, I’m calling to give you moral support.
I know this
is a big day for you.
Harmony, you there? Yeah. Yes. Yeah, and — and you’re right, um… it’s one of the most important days of my life. It’s the day that I tell willow that she’s not my biological daughter. Harmony, uh, I got to go. My boss is here, so, um, I’ll check in with you later. Good luck.
[ Phone beeps ] Oh, harmony, huh? Yeah. Do you have a problem with that?
[ Door closes ] Hello?! Hi. Hi. You okay? Yeah. Uh. Sorry, I just zoned out for a minute.
[ Chuckles ] Mm. I think I need some caffeine.
[ Scoffs ] With all the double shifts you’re pulling, I’m not sure caffeine is gonna do the trick. Maybe not. Is that the card that, uh, franco’s mom sent you? Yeah, yeah, I left it in my locker last night. I was just gonna throw it out to put all the bad, you know, and sad anniversaries behind me. But unfortunately, I don’t think that’ll put an end to things. What does that mean? Something big is going on.
[ Knock on door ] Ms. Corinthos? Carly: Yes. There’s someone here to see you. Okay, send them in.
[ Papers rustling lightly ] Hey. What happened? You wouldn’t have called me if you hadn’t been drinking. I’d have called you sober. Really? Yeah. That would have been a first. Look, you’re looking down the barrel of a divorce because you played fast and free with your meds. You don’t know that, nina, and I don’t know that. All I know right now, I’m going through a divorce. And you’re here, right? I just — I think that you’re avoiding the subject — no, no, I’m not, I don’t know what the subject — I forgot already. What’s the subject? Well, the subject… I…[Sighs] I — I can’t remember the subject right now.
[ Breathes sharply ] Your birth certificate is just egregious.Unorthodox childhood, but the fact that the government cannot produce your birth certificate is just egregious. I know, I know, it’s very frustrating. This is just ridiculous. And if there’s anything I can do to help, please let me know. Thank you, monica. I —
[ Doorbell rings ] Hopefully, my mother can give me all the information I need. You know what? I wouldn’t want someone to judge me based on the worst chapter of my life. I made a fresh start, and harmony is owed one, too.
[ Door closes ] So if you say she’s changed… then you’ll believe that she has? I’ll believe that you believe her. I’m gonna take that as a win. Alright, boss. Why are you here? I’m sure you don’t want to talk about my personal life on company time. You’re right. I actually have some news of my own — news that’s gonna change the future of this company. Wow. Mm. [ Chuckles ] Man, a guy could get used to that welcome home. So it’s all over? It’s over. Peter’s dead.
[ Sighs ] The paperwork has been filed. Speaking of which, there’s probably some people I got to go tell. Ooh, can I be your backup? I would love for you to be my backup. But I should probably do this on my own. Can I meet you at your place after? Oh, yeah. I’m gonna hold you to that. Okay. Wait, s-stop. What’s wrong? No. W-w– what we’re doing… it’s a huge mistake. I’m sorry, I’m sorry.
[ Door closes ] That wasn’t a great “welcome home.” I mean, I just, uh… I’m glad you’re back and I’m glad you’re safe, . …And you have a really somber look on your face. No, it’s — so please don’t tell me that, um… it’s all good news. It’s all good news. Maxie is home, and she’s safe, and she is reuniting with her daughter as we speak. Oh, god, that’s such wonderful news. When I heard what maxie and brook lynn did to protect maxie’s baby from peter, it broke my heart. I know, I know, I know. But the good news is they never have to look over their shoulder again because peter is dead. The nightmare that he brought over all of us, that is over now. Now that it’s safe, maxie and her family, they can — they can be together again. I don’t want to cross that line with you. You don’t want to cross the li– the line’s already been crossed. Look, sonny, please don’t try to joke this way. I’m not. I just… I realize that I have made a lot of mistakes, okay? I’m not saying that I have, but a kiss between us should mean a lot more than a distraction technique from the real issue of you and your meds. It was not a technique, nina. No, the point is you went out on yet another bender last night, right? Right. Well, I’m not claiming to be some kind of expert here, but I do know this — aside from the physical health concerns, alcohol can dull the effects of the medication. Even though you’re back on your meds, you could still be emotionally vulnerable until it fully kicks in. So what — what we were about to do would be wrong, just like it was wrong the other day. Okay. What happened… between us… I wasn’t drinking. No, but you were drinking heavily days before and your — your — you know, your body is readjusting to all the meds. That would explain what happened between us at the haunted star… when carly walked in on us. What if I don’t want — what if I don’t want to e-explain it away? What if my drinking had nothing to do… …with what happened between us? Something big is happening? Like — like what?
[ Footsteps approaching ] Elizabeth. Finn, I am, uh — I’m so sorry to interrupt, but have either of you spoke to anna this morning? N-no. You? No. I haven’t spoken to her in a few days. Why? What’s going on? She was in europe, looking for peter, and he’s gone. Gone? Y-y– like, you mean got away again? Uh, no, no, no. I mean, the other kind of gone. He’s dead. Look, I know I’ve had a lot more time to process this, so I will say what you’re probably thinking. Peter has always managed to come back when we thought he was gone, but not this time. He is finally dead, and he will never be able to hurt us or our families or anyone else ever again. I know that it is a lot to process with peter’s death, but I knew that you’d be happy about that, about maxie. Yes, I am happy. I am so happy that peter is dead. I just… wish jason was here to see it. Jason, my brother and your… how would you describe jason? He was my person. He loved me unconditionally, despite my many faults, and I loved him. I still love him. He died saving the lives of people that he cared about. He…set a course in motion that led to peter’s downfall. My brother died a hero because that — that’s who he was. Well, he was certainly my hero, always there when I needed him. I still need him. You know, the medication and the alcohol… it doesn’t explain the connection between us. You’re drawn to me. I’m drawn to you. Like a moth to a flame. And the night at the haunted star was… a mistake for many reasons. The timing, hurting carly. And when we talked that night… …at the chapel… …I fell in love with you in nixon falls. I didn’t know who I was. And — and those — those feelings, they just don’T… disappear. Maybe the silver lining is, um, we now finally get to unpack what we mean to each other… without all the baggage and deception. I understand what you’re saying. You know, we had all that baggage because I’m the one who created that. I described our love in nixon falls as pure, and it was. But that was only part of the story. The whole time I was drowning in guilt, sonny. It was wrong of me to fall in love with you… yeah. …When you didn’t have your memory. Just like it would be wrong if we explored anything between us when you’re so vulnerable. I should really get to work. Alright. Gonna go. Go ahead. Just gonna freshen up. Okay.
[ Knock on door ] Mr. Corinthos, there’s someone on the list here to see you. Okay. Bad time? You don’t sound very positive about that news. Should I be worried? Should I be updating my résumé? Sorry. You know how I keep my cards close to my chest. It’s actually good news. The circulation of the invader has increased. Yes! Lord enterprises is downsizing their printed division. Now they’re gonna hold on to the banner in llanview for legacy reasons, but they’re divesting from their west coast newspapers. So how is this affecting you? I’m thinking of using the cash flow from my nonprofit to buy them up, you know, to expand
the invader’s reach. That’s a huge deal. Congratulations.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah, there’s just one not-so-little catch. Uh, the main offices of that branch is located in san francisco, and I’d have to move there to make this work. Michael.
[ Clears throat ] Dr. Quartermaine, good to see you. Harmony. Hopefully you’re going to be able to help willow out with this birth-certificate issue. Monica, can we use the living room? Oh, of course, go right ahead. Thank you. Thanks. Do you think harmony is going to really be able to solve the mystery of the birth certificate? I don’t — I don’t know. And she’s been pretty evasive so far. You mentio ned on thetificate? I do. Yeah. Mom? Is… is everything okay? Willow, honey… there’s something I need to tell you. The only way to make this work is if I move the nonprofit base of operations to san francisco. Well, at least for a while. You know, and maybe someday I can split my time from there and port charles. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity, really. San francisco is a beautiful city. I’m so happy for you. Hm. And yet, you don’t sound like you are.
[ Chuckles ] Selfishly, I liked having you around again. Hey, I liked when we were all living together. It was nice. It was domestic. It was happy. It was like our happy little playing house. Like what it could’ve been all those years ago if I hadn’t royally screwed things up when we were a couple? I didn’t say that. But you were thinking it. We were good together… when we were good together. Yeah. I’d say we still are. Okay.
[ Chuckles ] You know, I know there are a million reasons why I should move to the west coast. I’m just wondering if there was one better reason for me to stay. Hey, whatever it is, you can — you can tell me. Uh, and I know we’ve had our ups and downs, but… I’m your daughter. I’m here for you. I managed to — to find your birth certificate. What? Really? How? Um, uh… it — it turns out that I-I still have some connections in clairborne county. And their record-keeping system is badly outdated, but I, um, I called in a few favors, and they’re gonna send me a new copy of your birth certificate. That’s such great news. Yeah. Mom, uh… thank you. Thank you.
[ Both chuckle ] Peter’s dead? Are you absolutely sure? Um, according to dante, yes. Anna saw peter take his last breath, and the wsb has possession of his body. They performed an autopsy, and they are filing all of the paperwork. The reign of terror that peter had is finally over. Finn: Elizabeth, are you okay? I don’t know how to answer that. I mean, peter was responsible for so much loss — franco’s death and jason’s death, all those months maxie was kept away from her baby. It just feels like there should be something more. Agreed. There was certainly something appealing about the thought of peter rotting in prison for the rest of his life, alone, knowing the world had completely forgotten about him. At least there’s no possibility of escape this time. I just thought knowing the threat was over, I’d feel some sort of closure. I mean, I’m relieved, but it doesn’t lessen everything we lost. I know — I know how you feel. Thank you for telling us. You don’t have to stick around. Hey, the way I see it, you and i have had our lives significantly turned upside down in the past year and a half. But jake and danny are jason’s sons. So in a way, we’re always gonna be connected. And you sought me out when you found out that jason was marrying carly because you know how I felt. I guess what I’m trying to say is… I’m always gonna have your back. Thanks. And I will continue to have yours.

[ Exhales sharply ] I’m gonna give you some private time. I take it that things haven’t gotten any better between you and sonny. Well, you can’t get much worse than walking in on sonny in bed with nina. You know, that was definitely a low point. Oof. And when I saw sonny in bed with nina, all I wanted to do was run to jason.

[ Chuckles ] He had this way of making me feel like the world wasn’t gonna end, even though the sky was falling. You know what I mean? I do. Yeah, I know. But I’m glad I ran into you. You have the same touch. I was really worried that maybe I just kind of made everything worse… considering… we almost… almost. Sonny: Come in. Uh… I don’t know if anyone had, uh, reached out to you and let you know that, uh, peter august is dead. Really? Yeah. Wow. He won’t be hurting anyone ever again. Good. I wanted to make sure you heard it before the news broke. I’m gonna go to the quartermaines’ and let michael and monica know, but unless you wanted to let michael know yourself? No, no, it’s better that it’s coming from you. So you’re telling me that anna took peter out? Yeah, it was a team effort. I’m gonna check in on anna… -okay. Alright. -…See what’s going on. You know, I, uh, I don’t have to go anywhere. I’m not in any rush. And I know peter’s the reason that jason is dead. So if you wanted to talk about that at all… no, I appreciate the offer. I’m doing — I’m doing — uh, I’m doing fine. You’re not doing fine. Yeah, I am. No, you’re not. What do you mean? Come on. Everything that’s going on with carly… like your best friend that you would normally confide in this stuff with, he’s not here anymore. And I’m not — I’m not saying that I’m jason, but I am here for you. I got nothing to talk about. Let’s just… dad, come on. It’s your son dante, okay? If something’s eating at you, why don’t you tell me? I got nothing to talk about! I — I’m fine! Just… want to be left alone, that’s all. Is this a business problem, or is there another reason you, uh, are trying to get rid of me?

You made the right call… stepping back that night. Whatever pull was drawing us together, I really — I don’t — I don’t want that to jeopardize our friendship. Yeah. I, uh… we were both having a really bad night. I mean, I thought I was gonna spend the rest of my life with sonny. I’m sure you thought the same thing about sam. And like [Snaps fingers] That, everything changed. Well, we’re not exactly in the same boat. You and sonny are married. Married. Getting a divorce. Oh. I’m sorry. Yeah. Me too. I feel like I didn’t really have a choice, you know? I kept asking sonny over and over again to tell me what happened in nixon falls, and he just wouldn’T. He wanted to focus on the present, and I get that — I really do.

[ Chuckles ] But when the truth came out — because it always does — couldn’t believe how many secrets sonny was keeping from me. Then when I walked in on him in bed with nina, are you kidding me? I had to choose myself. And how can I be a good role model for josslyn and avery and donna if I stayed in a marriage that I wasn’t respected, you know? Look, I cannot argue with any of that. I can’T. S-so that’s it? It’s — it’s over? Yeah, it’s over. I mean, we — we met with the lawyers, and we kept it as civilized as we could, and we agreed that for donna and avery’s sake, we want to make this seamless as possible. But can we really do that? I mean [Laughs] Life is complicated. Hey. What? What is it? I just realized — does sonny know that peter’s dead? Does he have any idea that the man who killed jason is gone? Dante: You should know by now you can’t just push me away that easy. I’ve seen this before. I know what it is, and I know walking away would be a bad idea. You’re right. You’re right. I-I-I shouldn’t have snapped at you like that. It’s just I had a bad day yesterday. I met up with carly and the attorneys. We had to hammer out the divorce. Didn’t go very well. So, uh, I’m embarrassed to say that I went out, had A… lot of drinks. And, uh [Sighs] I feel like hell today. I’m hungover. No big mystery. That’s all. But we could, uh — we could go — we — we could have — some other time, we’ll have some coffee, we’ll talk. Alright. I didn’t know you and carly were doing divorce proceedings. Sorry about that. Alright. I love you. I love you, too, man. I’ll check in on you later. Please call me if you need anything, alright? Thanks for checking in on me.

[ Door closes ] Hey. Thank you for not telling dante I was here. I didn’t feel like answering a bunch of questions. You don’t owe anybody any explanations. I’m just curious. Why didn’t you tell him I was here? Right. That’s just proof that, um… our kiss was a mistake. I’m glad the answer turned out to be so simple. I-I thought I was going crazy, like I didn’t exist. It’s just because of the way I raised you. It’s all my fault. You’re… you’re a seeker, mom. You ask the big questions, and you sincerely want to find a better way to live, a better way to be in the world. And that underlying impulse is a good one, even if some of the outcomes have been… horrible? Difficult. I’m sorry if — if this process dredged up some of our memories from the past. Well, that’s all it is now — in the past. And I’m so glad we get to move on from it. Together. I’ll give you two reasons — tj and molly. Tj is a full-grown man, and my son is not what I was talking about, and you know that. When we reconnected last year, it was — it felt like fate. It did?

[ Sighs ] It was like we were given a chance for a do-over in our relationship. You know? We’re not repeating the same mistakes. You know, you helped me get out of jail, and now I’m helping you, you know, get some purpose back in life. Mm-hmm. We’re helping each other get back on track. Yes. We care about each other. Yes. So am I right? Wasn’t there something bubbling up to the surface between us in the last few months? I-I hadn’t really thought about it.

[ Scoffs ] Liar. Do I want you in my life? Oh, I do. Absolutely, 100%. But when neil died, a part of me shut down. And — and I’m not sure how to turn it back on again. But you’d like to.

[ Door opens, knock on door ] Mom? Oh. -Hey. -Hi. Hi, honey. Yeah, I’ll — I’ll get you some updates on those reports. Right? Um, sam, good to see you. -Good to see you, shawn. -Yeah. I hope I wasn’t interrupting anything. You know, I don’t talk about it much, but, um… I know maybe better than anyone that you don’t just get over losing your spouse. My wife… it took me a long, long time… …to make peace with reiko’s death. But, you know, there may be a — a path forward for you, you know, where you can hang onto all your good franco memories and keep them with you. At the same time… …keep the trauma of his death in the past. If only it were that simple. I haven’t told you everything about what’s going on with me… and franco.

So what’s the good word? My mom was able to track down my birth certificate. It should be arriving soon. I should get going. -Okay. -Okay. Hey. Hey. Hey, dante. What are you doing here? Uh, I just wanted to talk to you. Uh, you don’t need me here for this.

[ Chuckles ] Um , I imagine you’re hereto talk to michael about sonny and carly. I can give you some privacy. No, no, actually, willow, you should stay. And, monica, you as well. This involves all of you. I wanted to be

the onepersonally to tell you guys that, uh, peter august is dead. He’s never gonna hurt anyone ever again. Look, I-I’ve got no idea if sonny knows about peter. I’ve been kind of busy getting debriefed by the bureau.

[ Sighs ] I can’t even stand the thought of looking at sonny right now, but…jason’s family. I should be the one to tell him that jason’s death was avenged. If you want some backup, I’m happy to go with you.

[ Sighs ] Or I could just break it to sonny myself. I could just take it right off your plate. Nina: Peter’s dead? I can’t — I can’t believe it. He — he made so many people miserable. He’s dead. Well, what happens now that the horrible nightmare is over and ended? What usually follows an ending is a new beginning. I should go. Wait, wait, wait. You don’t — you don’t have to go right now, do you? Oh, yeah.

[ Chuckling ] Yeah, I do. Listen… whatever happens next, sonny, I hope you consider cutting down on your drinking or not drinking at all. You deserve to have a clear mind when you figure out what you want to do next. I’ll think about it ’cause I… I believe I owe you that much. Oh, no, sonny. You don’t owe me anything. You owe it to yourself. So there’s been more incidents besides the ring and the card? Why — why didn’t you say anything? Because I felt like I was imagining things. But if it’s real… tell me about them. It was valentine’s day. I had decided to donate the dress I wore when I married franco. I wasn’t gonna wear it again, and it’d just been hanging in my closet in a garment bag. When the bag was opened, my dress was torn to shreds. I know all of this seems so random on a case-by-case basis, but when you combine the ring, the dress, this card… it forms a pattern, and we — we shouldn’t dismiss that. Right. I just feel like someone is doing these things deliberately. You’re sure the boys aren’t upset about you and me? They’re not acting out?

[ Scoffs lightly ] Cameron is so happy with josslyn and pcu, his heart is not in a destructive place. Right. And jake and aiden? I asked them. I asked both of them, and they both insist they had nothing to do with the ring. Okay, maybe… trust me, I know when my boys are lying, and I don’t think they are. I mean, I-I guess I can ask them again.

[ Cellphone beeps ] Listen. I, um… I have one patient I need to check, um, before I head out. I’ll, um… see you back at the house? Sure. It’s gonna be okay. So, peter’s death — did that give you any closure? Closure and relief. Not only for myself, but the entire city, including you. Mm-hmm. Remember, peter was the one who gaslit you into thinking that franco was a threat to me. Mm. Yeah, I appreciate the sentiment, but I was drunk when I assaulted dante, so I really can’t blame peter for that. And besides, you know, prison, unfortunately, was a wake-up call that I needed to be sober. Right. And then you reunited with shawn. How are things going between the two of you? We are just good friends. He’s also my boss, so anything beyond that would be inappropriate anyway. Okay. I can accept that. Even though you are the happiest that I’ve seen you since neil died. Hm! And the way he died, it was so sudden and unexpected. And you just — you’ve pulled yourself together, and you keep moving forward. Neil would want you happy. As a matter of fact, I think that shawn was probably the most stable relationship you’ve been a part of since I’ve known you. That’s a pretty low bar I’ve set.

[ Chuckles ] True. But come on, mom, can’t shawn be your confidant, and not harmony with all of her baggage? I mean, I know you said that you were giving her her second chance. But has she really changed? I’m sorry. Seat’s taken. Yeah. By me. Look, I’ve seen you handle some shady business in here and in the alley. Word on the street is you’re pretty good at forging documents? Maybe. What’s it to you? How good are you at forging a birth certificate?

Betsy. Hi. It’s elizabeth. Um, I know it’s been a while. Listen. I got your card. Um, I have some news I think you’ll want to hear. Is there any way you can come to town so we could talk in person? Okay. I freely admit that harmony has gone above and beyond to redeem herself. I mean, she did help us… track down drew. But, mom, there is so much history between her and our family. I know. I know. We’ve been through this. I appreciate it. I understand. But I’m gonna stop you right here. Honey, shawn is my friend. Harmony has been my friend. And I care about both of them. Which is why I’m so grateful that you and the girls, including shawn, are accepting the possibility that she may have changed. Pleasure doing business with you. I’ll be in touch when I have something.

[ Sighs ] This is a long time coming. To jason. And to all the people who weren’t here to see the justice that they deserved. To jason. -To jason. -To jason.

[ Sighs ] And now we have to focus on putting all the people whose lives were torn apart by peter back together again. I’m gonna think about cutting back for my own well-being, and I just want to let you know that it means a lot that you care. Well, I should know better, but… I can’t seem to help myself. Is sonny inside?

Ciara: Okay now, up a little to the left. All right, now that’s too much. Down a smidge. Just a little bit.

Ben: Ugh.

Ciara: Little bit more.

Ben: Uh. You know, here I was thinking that when we got done with this, maybe we’d actually be able to celebrate valentine’s day. But at this rate, I guess we could just do that tomorrow.

Ciara: Okay, you know what?

Ben: What?

Ciara: I think the painting is perfect.

Ben: Oh, good.

Ciara: Just like you.

Nicole: Ms. Vitali, as always, did a pretty good job of covering her tracks. But not good enough to get past me. She’s going down, mr. Hutchins. So you can either cut a deal and testify against her, or she’s gonna take you down with her because that’s the kind of person she is. So are you gonna walk in that courtroom and perjure yourself? Or are you gonna take advantage of your last chance to save yourself and admit that ava vitali put you up to this?

Ava: I hope you believe me, allie.

Allie: I know you wouldn’t swear on tripp’s life if you didn’t mean it.

Ava: Absolutely not. I love him with all of my heart. As I know you do. And for tripp’s sake, I just– I can’t have you thinking badly of me, especially not tonight, when he’s about to–

Allie: About to what?

Ava: Nothing. No, I shouldn’t– I shouldn’t have said anything.

Allie: Ava, should I be worried about tripp?

Ava: No. No, no, no, no. It’s a good thing. At least I hope you think so.

Allie: Oh, my god. Is tripp going to propose?

Chanel: Are you really proposing tonight?

Tripp: I’ve been wanting to do it for a while, but it’d take me, like, six years to afford a decent ring at my salary.

Chanel: That ring looks a lot more than decent.

Tripp: It was my great-grandmother’S. And it seems like allie’s style, but I’m not sure.

Chanel: Oh, tripp. It’s gorgeous. Allie’s gonna love it.

Tripp: Thanks. I really want it to be special. She deserves that. I just–I’ve never met anyone like her. Not only is she beautiful, but she’s funny, honest. I’m telling you what you already know.

Chanel: Yeah. I hope that didn’t sound like i was rubbing it in, though, after everything you’ve been through with johnny.

Chanel: No, no. I–I know how much you love allie. And it’s not your fault her brother was an ass. Allie did keep warning me about him.

Tripp: Yeah, but I think even allie underestimated how big of an ass he is. I mean, not only did he just treat you like crap, but, I mean, after what happened between you and allie…

Chanel: What happened between me and allie was that… we kissed a couple of times a long time ago. And since then, she has made it totally clear that you’re the one she loves. And johnny’s the one I… the one I thought I loved.

Johnny: It’s true. I might want to be the ceo of dimera one day, but gabi has convinced me that you’re the right man for the job– in this moment. She can be very persuasive, you know.

Jake: I do know that.

Gabi: I told johnny that you’ve done this job before, so you could be up to speed day one. Also that shin has always been on your side.

Johnny: And besides, I’m so busy with this movie, I don’t have time for another job. Tell you to truth, I kinda wish my producer wasn’t holding me to my contract.

Jake: Hmm, that’s funny, johnny, I thought you were dying to do this movie.

Johnny: Yeah. But I’m just feeling like I’M… in a deal with the devil to tell the devil’s story.

Julie: Perhaps it’s coincidence. But the devil did come to salem to claim your unborn baby. So doug and I got the cross– the one thing that we thought would protect our new great-grandchild.

Ben: Have some water.

Julie: Thank you.

Ciara: Grandma, it’s okay. We can fix it. We will try again and again and again.

Julie: Sweetheart, I know you think I’m overreacting, that I’m just a superstitious old woman. But let me tell you, the last time I saw an upside-down cross, the devil was standing in the middle of my living room.

Ben: And that was horrible, but marlena is not possessed by the devil anymore.

Ciara: Yeah. The exorcism worked, and the entire family was there to witness it.

Julie: Good. I know when the devil passed from doug to marlena… now it’s passed out of marlena. How do we know the devil has left salem?

[Eerie music]

Ahh it’s the birthday girl!

Nicole: I’ve covered a lot of cases like this. Now, I’m not telling you what to do, but I do think it’s wise to take the exit ramp while you still have the chance.

Hutchins: The last time a former associate of ms. Vitali crossed her, he wound up dead with a steak knife in his chest.

Nicole: Are you saying you’re a former associate of ms. Vitali?

Hutchins: I never said that.

Melinda: Mr. Hutchins, there’s been a change in the schedule. What the hell is going on here?

[Tense music]

Ava: [Chuckles] That’s quite a leap there, allie.

Allie: Is it? Because I ran into tripp the other day with my grandfather at the pub, and they said they were talking about uncle steve and aunt kayla, but… tripp is so old fashioned, I bet he was asking for my hand in marriage because my parents aren’t around.

Ava: Okay, now that’s an even bigger leap.

Allie: But is it true?

Ava: Okay, I’m not gonna lie to you. Yeah, it is.

Allie: Oh, my god.

Ava: Okay, now please, please do not say anything to tripp, because he is so excited and I cannot be the one who ruined it for him. It would just kill me if you said no because of me.

Tripp: Thank you for being happy for us.

Chanel: Of course I’m happy. Horton’s just about my favorite person in the world, and… I guess I’m gonna have to get used to calling her johnson now.

Tripp: Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. But speaking of rings, I was thinking about putting it at the bottom of her champagne glass.

Chanel: Well, I mean, if she happens to swallow it, you’re a doctor, so you can do that heimlich thing on her.

Tripp: You think it’s cheesy, don’t you?

Chanel: No, it’s not that. It’s just, um… you know, horton’s not really a big fan of champagne.

Tripp: That’s right. She likes cosmos. But I’ve never made a cosmo before in my life.

Chanel: I got you. I will write down the recipe for you.

Tripp: Oh, thank you.

Chanel: I know just how she likes it.

[Sentimental music]

Johnny: So we all on the same page?

Jake: Yeah. I say we strike while the iron’s hot.

Johnny: Gosh, uncle jake, you sure can turn a phrase. I’m gonna call shin and tell him that we want to convene a board meeting as soon as possible. So if you’ll excuse me.

[Tense music]

Jake: That arrogant son of a bitch.

[Exhales] Again? Sorry to interrupt whatever that was going on here when I walked in.

Gabi: Nothing was going on.

Jake: Looked pretty cozy to me, gabs.

Gabi: We need his votes to get what we want, okay? I know what I’m doing. Would you please trust me?

[Eerie tone]

[Phone beeps] Oh, funny. Maggie kiriakis wants to see you.

Jake: Hmm.

Gabi: What’s that about?

Ciara: Do you think that the devil possessed grandpa doug again?

Julie: Oh, god forbid. But something very strange happened just a couple of nights ago. A fire broke out on top of the stove. The stove was not even on.

Ciara: Are you sure it wasn’t?

Julie: I’m sure, darling. The repair person looked it over, said everything was fine, had to be user error.

Ben: Hmm. And you think maybe that it could have been the devil that did it?

Julie: The fire broke out just as I was leaving to bring you that cross.

Ciara: Yes, and johnny brought it over.

Julie: Yeah, johnny. Johnny showed up. Wanted to talk to doug about this awful movie that he plans to make. Well, I told him what i thought of that.

Ben: Well, he told us that you were busy–

Ciara: “Putting out fires.” He said you were putting out fires, but he said it in a very joking kind of way.

Julie: Well, it wasn’t any joke. The flames were this high, there was absolutely no reason for them, and…

[Sighs] God. Oh, god, this cannot be happening again.

Dry eye symptoms

driving you crazy?

Allie: Ava, it means so much to me that we have a good relationship because of henry and tripp. But even if we didn’t, my feelings for you would never, ever affect how I answer tripp.

Ava: Oh, thank god. Okay. Well, I should let you go, ’cause you’ve got a big night ahead of you. Oh. Please act surprised.

Allie: Oh, no worries there.

Chanel: All right. And serve in a chilled cocktail glass.

Tripp: Oh, thank you.

Chanel: Cosmos a la london, as prescribed by chanel dupree.

Tripp: Thank you so much. You’re the best. And whatever I can do to help you in court, you can count on me.

Chanel: Well, we might wanna rethink that. When I asked you, I didn’t know that you were just about to become johnny’s brother-in-law.

Tripp: Well, he’ll be my brother-in-law only if allie says “yes.”

Chanel: Well, if she does say “yes,” then just make sure it’s cool with her for you to testify.

Tripp: I’m sure it will be. I mean, she feels the same about johnny as I do. She’s even taken to calling him the evil twin.

[Ominous music]

Jake: I swear, I have no idea what maggie wants.

[Phone beeps]

Gabi: Well, she says it’s urgent.

Jake: It’s gotta have something to do with victor and the titan stuff. Better get going.

Gabi: Well, let me know what she says.

Jake: You know I will. But just fair warning, I don’t plan on doing much business talk.

[Ominous music]

[Eerie tone]

Ciara: Has grandpa doug been okay lately?

Julie: He hasn’t locked me in the freezer again, if that’s what you’re asking.

Ciara: Oh, god. I–I don’t know exactly what I’m asking. I just… has he been acting out of character?

Julie: No. No, he’s back to being the most wonderful husband in the world again. And you know I’m watching him like a hawk after everything we’ve been through.

Ciara: Yeah, well, sure. Of course. I can imagine.

Julie: Come to think of it… when the devil left doug, went into marlena, she was present in the room. I mean, she was physically there with him. Now, doug was not at that exorcism. So there’s no way that the devil could have gone back to possess him.

Ben: Is that how these things work?

Julie: That’s what I’m told.

Ben: All right.

Julie: Okay, uh, I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry if I’ve disturbed you people.

Ben: No, no, no.

Julie: I didn’t mean to. I guess I am getting…

[Sighs] Crazy.

Ben: No, no.

Julie: I just want you to be well and, oh, my god, I want you to be safe, darling. And consider yourselves lucky that you don’t have a gas stove.

[Both chuckle] Have a wonderful, wonderful valentine’s day together.

Ben: Thank you.

Ciara: We will. And tell grandpa doug that i love him and give him all my hugs and kisses.

Julie: I’ll be glad to do.

Ciara: Okay.

Julie: Bye-bye.

Ciara: Bye.

Ben: Bye, julie.

Ciara: [Sighs] Okay, she really just gave me a scare. Ben?

Ben: It just doesn’t make any damn sense, ciara. There’s nothing wrong with the nail. The cross wasn’t top-heavy.

Ciara: Okay, now you’re scaring me.

Ben: Okay, hey. Let’s go inside.


[Tense music]

Ciara: Ben, what are you thinking?

Ben: I’m thinking that maybe she was right. That there’s no way that the devil could have gone back into doug.

Ciara: But?

Ben: But maybe… it could have jumped into somebody else.

[Tense music]

This is the sound of nature breathing.

Hutchins: This lady says she’s a reporter, that she wanted to talk to me about–

Melinda: This is not a lady or a reporter. This is a witness tamperer. Get out, miss walker, before I have the bailiff throw you out. And I suggest you call a lawyer unless you wanna join your boyfriend in statesville.

[Phone beeps]

[Line ringing]

[Phone rings, beeps]

Ava: Hey, honey.

Tripp: Hey, mom. I just wanted to say thank you for helping me get ready for tonight.

Ava: Yeah, of course. How you doing?

Tripp: I wish I could fast-forward to dinner. But hey, can I ask you to pick up a few extra things for me? I’m gonna need some cranberry juice and some limes.

Ava: Cosmos, huh? Sounds like everything’s a go.

Tripp: Yeah. Yeah, she’s gonna be so surprised.

Chanel: Hey, horton. You look like you’re contemplating the meaning of life.

Allie: I kind of am. I just found out from tripp’s mom that he’s going to propose to me tonight.

Chanel: I know. He told me.

Allie: He told you?

Chanel: Well, only because he wanted my opinion of the ring. You’ll love it. It’s gorge.

Allie: I bet I will.

Chanel: So I know he wanted it to be a surprise, but since you know, what are you gonna say?

[Chilling music]

Jack: [Grunts]

Gabi: What’s wrong?

Jack: Damn it.

[Vocalizes] I don’t know. A weird shock feeling.

Gabi: It’s been really dry out; I’m literally an electroshock machine. Are you okay?

Jake: [Vocalizes] Yeah. I’ll be fine. I’ll see you later.

Gabi: Yeah.

Jake: Oh, and, uh, I hope you’re hungry, because I got a bit of a surprise for you when I get back from maggie’S. See you, johnny.

Gabi: He’s got a surprise for me. He’s still plotting with maggie practically out in the open.

Johnny: Well, you’ve got an even bigger surprise for him. You know what they say: Pride goeth before the fall.

Ciara: So if the devil is still after our baby…

Ben: It had to have been somebody at the exorcism.

Ciara: All right, well, belle told me who was there. Marlena, of course. John, eric, brady, sami, allie, and johnny. Johnny. The one who brought us the cross.

Interview with Ben Savage, Lindsay Navarro, Erica Durance and Abby Hernandez

TV Interview!

Panel for "The Girl in the Shed"

Interview with actors Ben Savage, Lindsay Navarro, Erica Durance and EP Abby Hernandez of “Girl in the Shed: the Kidnapping of Abby Hernandez” on Lifetime by Suzanne 1/10/22

This was a very weird movie to watch. It was very creepy. Everyone did a good job in it. It was odd having the actual victim in the movie there in the panel, though. I think that was a first for me. It was wonderful to speak to Erica Durance because she was so great in this film as well as in “Smallville,” “Saving Hope” and “Supergirl.” Ben did an amazing job. If you’ve seen him in comedies before, this movie will really surprise you.

MODERATOR: Hi, everyone. Please welcome Executive Producer Abby Hernandez and stars Ben Savage, Lindsay Navarro and Erica Durance of “Girl in the Shed: the Kidnapping of Abby Hernandez.” Thank you all for being here today.




MODERATOR: Thank you. Our first question is from Right on Digital.

QUESTION: Hi. Am I muted?

MODERATOR: You’re good.

QUESTION: Hi. This question is for anyone who would like to answer it. Tell us a behind-the-scenes story about something that took place on set.

LINDSAY NAVARRO: Behind the scenes, hmm. Erica, Ben, you got anything? There’s so much that happened.

QUESTION: You can tell us a fun fact.

LINDSAY NAVARRO: I’ve got one. I’ve got one. Okay. So, there was a scene where Abby and Kibby are outside. It’s their first time being — it’s Abby’s first time being outside in I believe six months. And there’s a scene where she has this moment, a beautiful moment with a horse. But in reality, this horse was not having it. He did not want to be there. So there’s a couple scenes that where you see this beautiful, majestic horse and then there’s another one where you see a close-up of my face. The horse is not there because the horse has taken off. It like completely jetted. It was quite funny and all of us were a little bit scared because he was running across the field. Yeah, it was a great time.

ABBY HERNANDEZ: That’s hilarious.


ERICA DURANCE: Not to do any spoilers, but remember when we, Lindsay, we had to walk in the field and we had to be looking straight up and it had to be very graceful.


ERICA DURANCE: We kept trying to avoid all the — I don’t know there was a bunch of cow pies and all sorts of stuff. And so you’re trying to have this like ethereal really beautiful moment and we’re trying to spot check each other somehow by not looking down.

LINDSAY NAVARRO: Yeah, fun times.

MODERATOR: Thank you. Abby, did you have a chance to speak with the cast before they shot the film?

ABBY HERNANDEZ: Yes. Pretty much everybody, all the main characters, everybody that’s here.

MODERATOR: Awesome, thank you. Noah Wilson, you’re up next.

QUESTION: Hello, everyone. By the way, Erica, great to see you again.

ERICA DURANCE: Oh hi, Noah. I don’t see you, but I hear you and I know your voice.

QUESTION: Yes. Well, it’s so great to be with you guys. First off, Abby, I do want to ask you, you know, being executive producer, but also this being your story, how was it like to relive this, something that happened thank you personally, but it come to life in a movie on Lifetime based on a true story?

ABBY HERNANDEZ: Obviously, it’s a weird experience to have this happen in the first place. And then to have it made into a movie is obviously like an even weirder experience. But ultimately, I did find it healing in a weird way just to have it out there.

QUESTION (from Noah): Lindsay, you know, this is a film based on the real-life kidnapping of, you know, Abby. You know, 14 years old. Learning her full story, what was it like for you to personally portray Abby on the screen and act out some of the scenes of what actually went on in her, you know, real life?

LINDSAY NAVARRO: Yeah, wow. There was such a responsibility that came with that. It being a true story, knowing that Abby was a part of the project. That was one of the reasons why I wanted to do it as well knowing that Abby was on board. So it was challenging in that way. And but it all made it easier knowing that I could get in touch with Abby and we could talk things through. So for that I will be so — I will be forever grateful having her there, accessible on What’s App getting to video chat with her. But yeah, it made it heavier and it was challenging to walk through those scenes knowing that she had experienced this. And there was that weight that came with it.

QUESTION (from Noah): You know, Erica, last question goes to you, my friend. What will viewers learn from watching this movie look forward based on Abby’s real-life story?

ERICA DURANCE: Oh, I don’t know if that should be — thank you for giving that to me. I think that’s more of an Abby question. I suppose I can only share part of what I learned playing the part of Zenya in it and in speaking with her. Is the absurdity, the cruelty of life, the beauty that can come out of things that are awful and with Zenya, I found that she was just so incredibly powerful and strong and but yeah, I was kind of awe struck in dealing with her and talking to her. So originally when I was going to do this, she talked to me through her whole experience and it was incredibly generous of her. It was a three-hour phone call. But yeah, I don’t quite know how to answer that succinctly which is why I’m bumbling about. But it’s the human spirit and what we are capable of doing or what we are capable of doing to each other, how we are capable of finding our way around it in some way. But I do feel like I’m kind of — I’m the actor playing it. It wasn’t my story in that sense. I think it will be really awe-inspiring for a lot of people.

QUESTION (from Noah): Absolutely. Thank you guys so much. I appreciate it. Great to see you again, Erica.


LINDSAY NAVARRO: Thank you, Noah.

QUESTION: Bye guys, thank you.

MODERATOR: Thank you. Jay Bobbin?

QUESTION: Thank you very much. Erica, actually my question is also for you. It puts a different twist on what was just asked. The mother role on all these projects…

ERICA DURANCE: I hope I do better this time. Anybody else can kind of chime in as I bumble about.

QUESTION: I’m sure you’ll do fine. The mother role on these projects. It’s interesting because depending on how it’s cast, whose playing it, how much they’re given attention in the script, we’ve seen Jenny Garth do it and she did it to a great extent in the one that she was in. Joely Fisher did one and she had maybe a few scenes here and there. It was largely, “Where’s my daughter? What happened to my daughter?, etc.” With you, as you approach this, how did you approach the mother role? Because you want to make your mark, but even as you said, it’s really the daughter’s story. How did you go about portraying the mother to make your mark in the film based on what you’d read in the script?

Erica Durance and Lindsay NavarroERICA DURANCE: Well, the first thing that I did was talk to Zenya. And I think that’s very important when you know you’re doing a true story so you’re portraying somebody else. You have to get inside as much as they’ll allow you access, to their process and what it was like. And so because she was so incredibly generous as I said in really walking me through the scenario and like Lindsay had mentioned there was a couple of moments on the set where I was going to do a scene that was specific and to something that kind of had happened to her. And I just had a last minute need to call her and go, “What was it you did when this happened?” And she was just right there. And just so helpful. So that gave me a blueprint of how she would have done it. And then at the end of the day, you have to take the situation that you’re dealing with and process it in the way that you would just naturally, if you can be natural, but how you would respond to those given situations as truthfully as you can. And for myself, it was tricky because I have little kids. And so I knew that there was going to be a point where I would probably step into a zone which was difficult to come back to and figure out how to separate myself from it. But you kind of have to dive into it. And so for myself then because it was such an intense, every day was intense and they shot my stuff all very sequentially so I had, you know, five days and it was all the scenes. And it was all of it all at once in that way. I just kind of locked myself in my green room and listened to music constantly and then just tried to give it my best. And I depended a lot on Jess Harmon who was our wonderful director to help guide me through those different nuances and what she believed was truthful and maybe not as truthful or kept me on point with the story as close as I could be.

QUESTION: Thank you.

MODERATOR: Thank you so much. Ben and Lindsay, most of your scenes are together. What was it like working together for this project and how did you tap into these characters? Of course after speaking with Abby and crafting the relationship?

LINDSAY NAVARRO: Ben, you go for it. You go for it.

BEN SAVAGE: I think that it’s such a difficult subject and it’s such a complicated story that I think Lindsay and I both wanted to be very careful about how we approached the subject and how we approached the relationship. And I think when we first got started, I think Lindsay and I were both a little apprehensive about making sure that we did this properly. But I think we gelled together as well as we could. I mean Lindsay is a total pro. And we had a wonderful crew, a wonderful cast, a terrific director with Jess Harmon. And I think we worked together as well as we could. It’s a tough subject and I think everyone wanted to be very sensitive to everything we were going through. But yeah, it was an interesting journey.

LINDSAY NAVARRO: Yeah. We gave each other space when we needed to have space when there was a difficult scene coming up that we needed to film where it was perhaps more emotional or more physically demanding. We would give each other that needed space. And then there were other times where Ben and I would check in with one another make sure we were doing okay. I really appreciated that from Ben actually that he would come over and just ensure that I was comfortable, I was content. And truly, I mean you said it, right Ben? We had an amazing cast, amazing crew that made everything feel very safe and easy to drop into. But it was a challenge.

MODERATOR: Thank you both so much. Rick Bentley?

QUESTION: Hi. Thanks for coming. Abby, I can’t even pretend to wrap my head around the hell on earth you went through with this. I’m just wondering where you found the strength and the courage to face it again through this production? And ultimately, what do you want to come out of this?

ABBY HERNANDEZ: Ultimately, I guess I’ll answer the last question first. What I want to come out of this is awareness I guess. I think that a lot of teenagers, since, you know, the age of social media and socialness is such an important thing. I think everybody, or not everybody but a lot of people have that a voice in the back of their head. You know, if I disappeared it wouldn’t matter. And I learned that yeah, it does matter. It affects a lot of people and it will forever. And then I guess, you know, the first question, how did I must the courage to, you know, sign off to do this movie. You know, it’s nothing new to me. It’s something — it’s in here constantly. Has been in there since 2013. I’m almost kind of numb to it, you know what I mean? And I feel like the world has progressed since then. You know, when at first I did not want to give Kibby up. I was really, you know, under tight pressure. And that’s when I gave up and I said I know the name of the person. But we’re in a day and age now where I think, you know, it’s encouraged to be honest about what’s going on. I don’t feel as scared anymore.

QUESTION (from Rick): And Abby, if I can follow-up real quickly, have you seen the final film?


QUESTION: Was it a tough watch?


QUESTION: Thank you.

MODERATOR: Thank you so much. Thank you, Abby. Abbie Bernstein?

QUESTION: Hi. Thank you all for doing this. For Ms. Hernandez, can you talk about changes made between reality and the film either for time or dramatic clarity or things that they felt would help people understand the story better that maybe happened differently?

ABBY HERNANDEZ: Sure. I think the ultimate thing that, you know, trust in the movie seemed to be kind of linear. At first it was nothing and then it grew. I think in real life, Kibby was almost in sort of a way — I don’t know want to say manic, but he would trust me and then no trust. Trust me and then no trust. So marijuana cleaning was one of the very first things that happened in October. In the movie it was portrayed afterwards once he had really gained my trust. So I think that’s basically what it was. And ultimately that’s kind of true. I mean he didn’t trust me at first really at all to see his face or know his name. But later on, he did. I think that’s a good way of portraying it.

QUESTION: So his psychological ping-ponging was made more streamlined for the film.

ABBY HERNANDEZ: Yes, exactly.

QUESTION: And were there any things about you that you thought, oh I wouldn’t have done it like that or gee, I wish I had done it like that?

ABBY HERNANDEZ: Lindsay was more classy than me. (Laughs.) Gosh. I don’t know. I mean I really don’t know.

QUESTION: Well, thank you very much.


MODERATOR: Thank you. Suzanne Lanoue?

QUESTION: Hi. Can you hear me okay?


QUESTION: Okay, good. Ben, you usually play the good guy. Have you ever played this kind of psycho role before? And was it challenging?

BEN SAVAGE: It was certainly a change of pace for me. But again, I just, as everyone said here, I think it was such an important story to tell. And I was just happy to be a part of the storytelling in the film. And yeah, certainly a departure, but you know, it was a very interesting role to play.

QUESTION: I’ll bet. And Erica, were you familiar with everyone that worked on the show before? Had you worked with any of them previously?

ERICA DURANCE: I knew Jess Harmon through her family. So I kind of knew of her, but I hadn’t met anyone else. I was of course familiar with Lindsay and Ben. And Abby somewhat through the news, right? But otherwise, it was all — yeah it was kind of the first day meeting everybody.


QUESTION: Great. Thank you so much guys.

BEN SAVAGE: Thank you.

MODERATOR: Thank you. We have time for one more with the Hollywood Times.

QUESTION: Hi. Could you talk about this film, how it’s relevant to the others that are in Lifetime’s girls’ initiative? And also what can — maybe talk about what can young women learn from watching the film?

MODERATOR: The first question I just want to jump in for a second. The first question is more of a question that we are happy to get you an answer to on the press side. But the cast can answer the second one.

QUESTION: Thank you.

MODERATOR: Thank you.

ERICA DURANCE: Sorry. Can you repeat the second one again?

QUESTION: Yeah, what can young women learn from watching this film?

ABBY HERNANDEZ: Keep your cool.

LINDSAY NAVARRO: Sorry, Abby. Go ahead.

ABBY HERNANDEZ: Oh I just said to keep your cool which is easier said than done especially as I’ve gotten older, but yeah.

ERICA DURANCE: Abby, one of the things that your mother said to me and you mentioned and in some of the earlier conversations we had which still shocks me to this day is your ability to — where you kept your cool in a way, the way your mother described it was to somehow find a way of seeing the humanity in the person that was treating you so cruelly.


ERICA DURANCE: And use that as a survival technique. And that still to this day is just shocking to me that you were able to somehow see that and find a way to make a connection with this person who was doing these things.


ERICA DURANCE: And spoke to such a huge amount of power and strength and I believe the young gals and whoever’s watching this, men or women, I think that that will be something that resonates a lot.

BEN SAVAGE: If I could just add, jump on that. I would just say I certainly can’t speak about what women can take away, but I think a larger message of course that I certainly took away from it was just strength and strength of character. And I think everyone associated with this film was so impressed with Abby and her story. And I do think there are some lessons to be learned here. But again, I’m just glad that we were all able to come together and tell this wonderful story as best the way we could. And Lindsay, I think you should jump in, too.

LINDSAY NAVARRO: Yeah, yeah. I was just going to add on as well, the tremendous courage that Abby had and continues to have in being so passionate about sharing this story as well. It’s truly remarkable. And I’m with you, Ben. I think it’s — for a larger audience, I think a lot of people are going to be inspired and will continue to be inspired by Abby’s story. And the crew, yeah the crew valued it so much as well. Everyone was so careful about telling the story as truthfully as we could and with such passion into telling it. So I think people can take away this hope, the power of prayer, the power of faith and the power of not giving up.

QUESTION: Wonderful, thank you.

Recap written by Christine

Phyllis visited Jack at the Abbott mansion. He was scouring his last emails from Keemo for clues. Phyllis let Jack know she was there for him. He read an email from his son aloud. “How many times do I have to tell you to leave me alone? I don’t want anything more to do with you. I will never forgive you for hiding my mother’s illness from me. You are nothing to me.” Phyllis said Keemo was just speaking in out of pain and loss. Jack said he reached out to Keemo so many times and never got a response. Phyllis suggested that Keemo was sending these texts hoping to make amends. Jack was afraid to hope, but he wanted to know if this was Keemo.

Phyllis did some searching, and she saw that Hao Nguyen owned a lot more properties than the one in the text Jack got. He asked how she knew it was the same person. She didn’t, but she’d done some cross referencing, and she thought it was. Jack was also online searching, and he was alarmed to run across an obituary for Hao Nguyen. Phyllis wasn’t surprised, since Jack said his father in law had died a long time ago. Jack pointed out that Keemo had taken his mother’s maiden name. Maybe Keemo also adopted his grandfather’s first name. Jack was worried that this was an obituary for his son.

Phyllis didn’t want Jack jumping to conclusions. She said it was a generic obituary, a common name, and there were no survivors listed. Jack noticed that the birth year was the same as Keemo’s, and it said this man died of a heart attack three weeks ago. That was the same time the texts started coming in. Phyllis said it could be a coincidence. Jack was panicking, but he wanted to believe Phyllis was right. Phyllis assured him that she’d get the information. Phyllis kept searching websites. She scrolled through a memorial site, and Jack spotted Keemo’s photo on it. His eyes filed with tears.

In the Grand Phoenix suite, Adam still wasn’t sure if he’d gone too far with Victor. Sally asked if she should continue to work on the merger or if he was still considering leaving Newman Media. He asked if she remembered when they were talking in bed yesterday. According to Adam, Sally had said all the things he’d been feeling, but he couldn’t quite articulate – that Victor made his job contingent on doing Victor’s bidding, not merit. Hearing Sally say that filled him with righteous anger, and it made him realize all the things he’d wanted to say to his father. He then went on to say those things. She asked if he thought she steered him in the wrong direction.

Adam said he wouldn’t gain anything from leaving Newman Media. It would only feed into the narrative that he was reckless and impulsive. She said those weren’t always the worst qualities. He added that it would also send the message that he shouldn’t be taken seriously. He thought it was clear that Ashland and Victoria planned to push him aside as soon as the merger went through. He decided to go on the offensive and make Victoria and Ashland fail. He said he’d tell Victor that he’d keep an eye on Ashland. But Adam wouldn’t be doing this for Victor’s sake, he’d be doing it for his own.

At Newman Media, Victor told Victoria that Adam had second thoughts about staying at Newman. Victoria said she did as Victor asked and kept Adam on, but she couldn’t make him stay, and she didn’t want a top executive who wasn’t fully committed. Victor told Victoria to smooth things over with Adam. Victor wanted Victoria to make Adam feel respected. Victoria balked about soothing Adam’s fragile ego, and Victor said part of being CEO was dealing with the entire executive staff, including people who disagreed with you. Victor wanted Victoria to pass the message on to Ashland. Victor was unhappy Ashland told Adam he’d be keeping him on a short leash, and if Adam didn’t like it he could quit. Victoria thought Ashland was just setting boundaries. Victor snapped that no one set boundaries for his children except him.

Victoria said she showed up in the middle of Ashland’s talk with Adam, so she knew what was said. Victor asked if Victoria denied that Ashland reined in Adam at every turn. Victoria said Adam was testing his boundaries, and Ashland let him know that he had autonomy within reason, but he answered to Ashland and Victoria. She noted that she’d signed off on Adam’s first major decision – hiring Sally, which was a questionable decision, at best. She asked what the problem was. Victor didn’t like Ashland disrespecting Adam. He reminded Victoria that Adam helped her wedding from blowing up. Victoria didn’t think that justified giving Adam a free pass. She was happy her wedding wasn’t derailed, but she was sure Adam did that to prove his loyalty to Victor. She said Adam was rewarded because she kept him on at Newman Media, which would become a larger division once the merger went through. She grumbled that Adam went crying to daddy because his feelings were hurt. Victor said that wasn’t what happened. She thought Adam came back into Newman Enterprises and was bitter he wasn’t running it anymore. Victor reiterated that Victoria should smooth things over with Adam and make him feel welcome, for the good of the company.

Nikki came in after Victoria left. Victor confided that he’d heard some disturbing news about Ashland. Nikki was exasperated that Victor kept digging into that poor man’s life. Victor clarified that he had an email from a Peruvian doctor who said Ashland paid a substantial amount of money to falsify his medical records to make it look like he had cancer. Nikki asked how reliable this doctor was. Victor said Michael, one of the sharpest legal minds, found the testimony credible. Nikki said this could be a disgruntled ex employee looking for money or attention. Victor had considered all that, and Michael was continuing to investigate. Nikki refused to let Victor alienate Victoria by stirring up trouble in her marriage when they didn’t even know this was true. Victor said he was going to handle this with discretion for Victoria’s sake. Adam arrived.

Nikki left. Adam apologized to Victor and said Victor was right – it was hubris talking earlier. Adam was going to stay on at Newman Media. Victor asked if Adam talked to Victoria today, and he said no. Adam assumed Victor told Victoria to smooth things over. Victor said he wanted to protect the family and bring everyone together. Adam said he wasn’t going to spy on Ashland for Victor. Victor said Adam no longer needed to do that. Victor said there were things going on at Newman Locke that he was observing carefully. Adam asked if this was about Ashland. Victor said he believed he was right about Ashland. The most important thing though, was that Victor could count on Adam, because all hell was about to break loose.

At Newman Locke, Ashland was on the phone having a tense conversation with someone. He wanted that damn doctor found before he caused any more damage. He demanded to know how the person on the other end of the call allowed this to happen. “Allowed what to happen?,” Victoria said as she walked in. He tricked her into thinking there was a problem with the contract language in the Newman Media acquisition. She wanted to get involved, but he said it was a minor thing that he was handling. She was surprised it was minor since he’d sounded so heated on the phone. He said he was just trying to light a fire under the person. He said that if she wanted, he’d show her the issue with the contract. She said no, because she was sure he’d ask if he needed her help.

Ashland said that when he and Victoria merged the companies, he was focused on cementing his legacy. Due to his illness and treatment, he couldn’t make significant contributions here and be a real partner to her. Now he felt so much stronger, and he was ready to immerse himself into the powerhouse they were building. He’d been trying to carve out a place where he could make more of a contribution. He said they were both used to being the heads of their own corporation. Now, he was an advisor, and she was CEO, and he was ready to do more. He said they were in love, and they were working side by side in a company that bore both their names. He wanted to be co-CEO. She asked if his title really mattered. He said it mattered to other people. He lied and said he was being stern on the phone earlier because the legal department was giving him a hard time about making a small change in the contract. Victoria said she’d go talk to legal and get things straightened out. Ashland said he needed to be respected on his own, and that a title would do that. It would also send the message that he wasn’t an old man on his way out.

Ashland could tell Victoria didn’t like the idea of him being co-CEO. He asked if she had a problem with sharing the title and work, and she said no. Her eyes filled with tears, and she said she was worried that it might worsen his condition. She’d been through this with him, and she didn’t want him to push himself. She was concerned they’d undo all the progress they’d made. He said he was optimistic about his condition, but he knew the reality, and he didn’t believe he’d been magically cured. He felt better right now, and he wanted to live what was left of his life to the fullest extent. She wanted him to stay healthy. He said when he worked, he felt more like himself, and he felt in control.

Ashland sensed there was more to Victoria’s hesitancy. She admitted that this was also about the title. Her father put it in her head that she needed to be wary of Ashland because he was getting stronger, as if he might be some kind of threat to her or the company. Ashland said Victor was wrong. Victoria knew, and she wasn’t going to pay attention to what Victor said. She wanted to be partners in every way, so she said she’d have the contracts drawn up right away. She was still concerned about his health, and she was sorry she hesitated. She loved him. He loved her too. They hugged.

Devon and Amanda were still at Chance and Abby’s. The baby slept through the night. Chance and Abby noted that the doctor said the first couple days were critical. Abby was glad he was in the comfort of his own home. Devon was glad they had the resources to set up the nurseries with equipment and hire a private nurse. Chance took Devon aside and said he’d cover the price of the medical transport when the doctor said it would be okay for Dom to visit Devon. Devon said it wasn’t necessary, but Chance wanted to do this, because they were in this together. Chance felt it was the least he could do since Devon donated marrow and gave Dom such a wonderful gift. Chance knew how much Devon loved their son and that he’d do anything for the baby. Chance would do the same. Nate and Dr. Alston arrived to examine Dominic. Chance and Abby talked in private. He was worried for Dominic, and he hated that he hadn’t fully been there for him while he was dealing with his own issues. He was finished trying to convince himself he could manage this on his own. He’d also decided to get professional help. She was supportive.

Devon hoped Dom would be okay, and Amanda said that Dom had been a fighter since birth, and now he had a part of Devon inside of him, helping him fight. The doctors came downstairs and said Dom was doing extremely well. Dr. Alston said they’d be on the lookout for side effects and infections. After Dr. Alston left, Amanda and the three parents started heading toward the nursery. Nate stopped them and stressed that they had to take precautions because of the risk of infections. He told them to limit their visits. Chance told Abby to go first. Nate said the three parents working together for the welfare of their child was beautiful.

After the guests left, Chance called Sharon and asked if they could meet today to talk about finding him a therapist. She asked if he was sure he wanted to meet today – she heard he had a few rough days. He said he wanted to do it today for his family and for his son. Sharon came by. She asked about Dominic and commiserated about having a sick child. She had a list of good therapists. Chance said Dom needed him to be more of a father than he had been lately. Abby said they needed some guidance, and she understood Sharon didn’t think she should counsel Chance since she was so close to the situation. Chance explained that he didn’t think he had that internal thing parents felt – Devon and Abby had it though. Sharon admired Chance for wanting to be a better father and husband, and she was sure those things would happen for him. She told him to remember that reaching out for help was a sign of strength. Abby walked Sharon out. When she returned, she overheard Chance scheduling an appointment for as soon as possible.

Amanda, Devon, Nate and Elena went to Crimson Lights. They brought Elena up to speed. Elena thought Dom was the luckiest child to have three concerned parents. Devon thanked Nate for having the doctor make a house call. He liked having a doctor in the family. Nate broke the news that, after a lot of soul searching and a lot of long talks with Elena, he made the decision to leave the medicine for the business world. Surgery was Nate’s passion, but he didn’t enjoy the administrative side. He thought it was good that he was making a change instead of accepting that this was the best he could expect things to be.

Nate said Ashland sparked his decision to make a career move. He explained that he and Ashland hit it off after Nate helped him through a rough moment with his illness. Amanda noted that Ashland flew Nate and Elena to Tuscany on his private jet. Nate knew he and Ashland were unlikely friends with very different life experiences. Ashland convinced Nate that this move would be an exciting challenge. Devon wondered why Nate didn’t come work for Hamilton Winters, since Neil put him on the board – he could be at the family business. Nate said Lily offered him a job at Chancellor Industries. Nate appreciated the offer, but since Ashland got the ball rolling, Nate thought working with him would be the best move.

Update written by Joseph

Ben hangs a painting for Ciara at their new apartment. Ben jokes about wanting to be done with this so they can celebrate Valentine’s Day. Ciara tells him that the painting is perfect, just like him as they kiss.

Nicole waits outside of Rafe’s trial. Melinda arrives so Nicole stops her. Melinda guesses she’s going to tell her that Rafe is innocent. Melinda informs her that she just heard the same thing from Abe and Shawn. Nicole says they are right. Melinda questions why three unconnected people accused Rafe of planting evidence then. Nicole responds that those three people are connected by the person who told them to lie; Ava Vitali.

Allie walks through the town square and finds Ava crying. Allie asks her what’s wrong and why she’s crying. Ava responds that she just had a huge fight with Rafe and Nicole, revealing that her boyfriend cheated on her with her best friend.

Tripp is at the hospital, looking at the ring he got for Allie. Tripp thinks back to telling Ava that he planned to propose on Valentine’s Day. Chanel approaches and greets him. Tripp asks if everything is okay. Chanel informs him that she came to see him but guesses that he’s busy. Tripp says he’s actually on his lunch break now. Chanel hoped that he could help her as it’s about Johnny.

Johnny offers Gabi a Valentine’s chocolate to take her mind off it. Johnny guesses that cherry is her favorite as she accepts the candy. Gabi says the candy is still not enough to make her forget that she wants to kill Jake. Johnny assures that they will screw Jake together and then after that, she can kill him. Gabi can’t believe Jake used the DiMera legal department to try to take her shares when she inherited those shares from Stefan. Johnny takes her to the couch and tells her to have another candy and to remember that soon, they will be the ones doing all the screwing…

At the police station, Jake calls Gabi, leaving a message questioning where she is since she said she was coming to the station for Rafe’s trial but Rafe said she was never there. Jake tells her to call him and hangs up, wondering where the hell she is. Jake then thinks back to seeing Johnny’s texts to Gabi about wanting to see her later. Jake then declares that he knows exactly where Gabi is.

Gabi tells Johnny that what he’s saying makes perfect sense but she’s just having a hard time. Johnny reminds Gabi of what she heard “Jake” saying to Maggie about betraying her and seeing his signature on the forms. Gabi doesn’t want to believe it but decides there can be no other explanation.

Ben and Ciara kiss until feeling the baby kick. Ben suggests Ciara get off her feet. Ciara decides they both should as they kiss onto the couch. They kiss until there’s a knock at the door. They try to ignore it but it’s Julie, who says she saw their cars outside so she knows they are in there. Ciara helps Ben get his shirt back on as she then answers the door. Julie asks if it’s a bad time. Ciara claims they were just unpacking boxes. Julie points out that Ben missed a button on his shirt. Julie says she likes the place and it looks much nicer with all their things inside. Julie compliments the painting they hung and looks around the place, noticing that the cross that she sent is not hanging outside, so she thought it would be inside. Julie makes sure that Johnny delivered it and guesses they don’t like it. Ciara assures that it was wonderful but there’s a tiny problem with it.

Melinda tells Nicole that Ava is nothing but pragmatic and self serving but now questions her saying that Ava is setting up her boyfriend, protector, and landlord for a crime he didn’t commit. Nicole suggests she asks Steve and Kayla how Ava reacts when losing at love. Melinda questions if Ava has lost at love. Nicole confirms that Ava and Rafe have broke up. Melinda asks if Ava knows that because she’s been standing by her man. Nicole informs her that it just happened. Melinda guesses it was Nicole that got between them. Nicole responds that her private life is none of her concern. Melinda goes over Nicole suggesting that Ava spent the last few months setting up this scheme. Nicole explains that she and Rafe think that Ava knew about them awhile ago and was just biding her time. Melinda points out that Nicole doesn’t have actual evidence while she has two eye witnesses willing to testify that Rafe is a dirty cop. Melinda tells Nicole to let her know if she comes up with something more but she has a case to prosecute. Melinda then heads in to the court room.

Allie thinks back to Nicole telling her that she slept with Rafe. Allie asks Ava if she’s sure. Ava confirms that they just admitted it and rubbed her nose in it. Allie feels that doesn’t sound like Rafe. Ava adds that they also accused her of framing Rafe and landing him in jail because they got it in their head that she knew all along and is out for revenge. Allie asks if that is the case.

Tripp asks Chanel what Johnny did now. Chanel says it’s what she’s doing as she plans to sue Johnny for divorce and take him for every penny he’s got. Tripp points out that will cause Johnny a great deal of pain so he’s happy to help. Chanel explains that Johnny will claim that he married her on the spur of the moment and instantly regretted it. Chanel reminds Tripp about how happy Johnny was to celebrate on New Year’s Eve, so she asks Tripp if he would be willing to testify. Tripp agrees to do so and recalls Johnny saying he wanted to spend the rest of her life with her. Tripp adds that what’s weird is that he never liked or trusted Johnny, but when he said that, he believed him. Chanel thinks Johnny loved her until out of the blue, he didn’t.

Johnny asks if he’s convinced Gabi not to murder Jake just yet. Gabi still wants to cut his head off but agrees to take him to the cleaners first. Gabi still can’t believe Jake tried to take her to bed this morning. Gabi comments on this Valentine’s Day. Johnny suggests they can rectify it as he goes to kiss Gabi but Jake walks in and says he’s sorry to interrupt. Jake asks Gabi where she’s been. Gabi says she’s obviously right here. Jake reminds her that she said she was going to see Rafe so he questions why she lied to him.

Nicole goes to see one of the men who is accusing Rafe and pretends to be Jennifer, there for an interview. Nicole brings up coming across evidence that Rafe is being framed and that the three men accusing him are lying. Nicole doesn’t think setting up the police commissioner was a bright move. He denies it. Nicole doesn’t know what Ava did to persuade him to do her dirty work, but she knows she put him up to it and she can prove it.

Ava can’t believe Allie asked if she did that and asks if that’s what she thinks of her. Allie says she’s just desperate about Rafe and talks about Rafe being a great stepfather growing up so she cares about him a lot. Allie knows he did not do what he’s accused of. Ava says that doesn’t mean she set him up. Allie apologizes. Ava claims she cares about Rafe too since he pretty much saved her after Charlie and couldn’t have gotten through that without him. Ava says she’s just upset about Rafe and Nicole. Ava blames Nicole because she thinks she had her eyes set on him from the beginning. Allie brings up how much Nicole has done for her, so she can’t listen to Ava trash her. Ava says the wound is just pretty fresh since she just found out. Ava argues that she just found out about it today so there was no reason for her to frame Rafe. Ava thinks to Charlie’s grave and tells Allie that she swears on her son’s life.

Tripp tells Chanel that they are all ticked off about how Johnny treated her but he believed that Johnny felt about her how he feels about Allie. Chanel comments on Tripp and Allie getting pretty serious which Tripp confirms. Tripp brings up Chanel knowing Allie better than anyone so he asks for her opinion. Tripp then reveals the ring and asks if Chanel thinks Allie would like it. Chanel asks if he’s proposing. Tripp admits that he is tonight.

Gabi thinks Jake has a lot of nerve. Jake thinks she owes him answers since she said she was going to the police station to see Rafe but he went there and find out she never went, so she lied to him, while her phone went straight to voicemail and she didn’t call him back. Jake accuses Gabi of being too busy here with Johnny. Johnny claims it’s all his fault as Gabi was on her way to see Rafe but he called her and said it was an emergency about the DiMera takeover. Johnny tells them that Chad and Tony just left on the company jet looking for Abigail, so now is the time to make their move. Johnny proposes calling a board meeting to get Victor on the board and they can install Jake as the new CEO of DiMera. Jake says Gabi as head of Titan too. Johnny and Gabi say that was the deal they all agreed to. Jake appreciates what Johnny has done to install him back as CEO of DiMera, he can’t help but wonder if he doesn’t want the job for himself.

Ciara tells Julie that they loved her cross and Ben hung it outside like she wanted, but once they did, it kept flipping upside down. Ben thought maybe something was wrong with the nail so he tried to fix it, but nothing he did would keep it upright. Ciara says it felt wrong to leave it there upside down. Julie calls that very wrong. Ben asks if she’s alright. Julie says she made that cross their gift to protect their unborn baby but now there’s no way they could get the cross to stay upright. Ciara says they will try again. Julie doesn’t want to alarm them but calls it a very bad sign. Julie declares that an upside down cross is a sign of the Devil himself.

Nicole tells the man that Ava did a good job of covering her tracks but not enough to get past her. Nicole warns that Ava is going down so he can either cut a deal to testify against her or Ava’s going to take him down with her. Nicole asks if he will take advantage of his last chance to save himself and admit that Ava put him up to this.

Ava hopes that Allie believes her. Allie knows she wouldn’t swear on Tripp’s life if she didn’t mean it. Ava agrees and says she loves Tripp with all her heart, like Allie does. Ava says she can’t have Allie thinking badly about her, especially not tonight when Tripp is about to. Allie asks what he’s about to do. Ava says she shouldn’t have said anything. Allie asks if she should be worried about Tripp. Ava assures it’s a good thing, at least she hopes Allie thinks so. Allie realizes and asks Ava if Tripp is going to propose.

Chanel asks Tripp if he’s really proposing tonight. Tripp says he’s been wanting to for awhile but it would take him six years to come up with a decent ring. Tripp explains that Ava gave him his great grandmother’s ring and it seems like Allie’s style but he’s not sure. Chanel assures that Allie will love it. Tripp wants it to be special as Allie deserves it. Tripp says he’s never met anyone like Allie and praises her. Tripp hopes he’s not rubbing it in after all Chanel has been through with Johnny. Chanel knows how much he loves Allie and says it’s not his fault that her brother was an ass. Tripp thinks even Allie underestimated how big of an ass Johnny is. Tripp brings up what happened between Allie and Chanel. Chanel blows it off as she and Allie just kissed a couple of times a long time ago and since then, she’s made it totally clear that Tripp is one that she loves while Johnny is the one that Chanel thought she loved.

Johnny says he may be CEO of DiMera one day but Gabi has convinced him that Jake is the right man for the job in this moment. Johnny remarks that Gabi can be very persuasive. Gabi talks about Jake doing this job before and Mr. Shin has always been on his side. Johnny adds that he’s so busy with his movie that he doesn’t have time for another job. Johnny kind of wishes his producer wasn’t holding him to his contract. Jake thought Johnny was dying to do this movie. Johnny remarks that he feels like he’s in a deal with the Devil to tell the Devil’s story…

Julie comments that it could be a coincidence but the Devil came to Salem to claim Ciara and Ben’s unborn baby. Julie explains that she and Doug got the cross to protect their unborn great grandchild. Ciara assures that they will try again and again to fix it. Julie knows they think she’s being superstitious but the last time she saw an upside down cross, the Devil was standing in her living room. Ben assures that Marlena is no longer possessed by the Devil. Ciara reminds her that the exorcism worked and the entire family was there to witness it. Julie brings up when the Devil passed from Doug to Marlena and now out of Marlena. Julie asks how do they know the Devil has left Salem?

Nicole tells the man that she’s not telling him what to do but advises him to exit while he has the chance. He reminds Nicole that the last time a former associate of Ava crossed her, he wound up dead with a steak knife in his chest. Nicole asks if he’s saying he’s a former associate of Ava. He says he never said that. Melinda then walks in and questions what the hell is going on here.

Ava tells Allie that thinking Tripp is going to propose is quite a leap. Allie asks if it is because she ran in to Tripp the other day with Roman at the Pub and they said they were talking about Steve and Kayla but she bets that Tripp was asking for her hand in marriage because her parents aren’t around. Ava calls that an even bigger leap. Allie asks if it’s true. Ava then admits that it is true but says she can’t say anything because Tripp was so excited and she can’t be the one who ruined it for him. Ava adds that it would just kill her if Allie said no because of her.

Tripp thanks Chanel for being happy for them. Chanel calls Allie her favorite person in the world and jokes that she’ll have to call her Johnson instead of Horton. Tripp says he’s been thinking about putting her ring at the bottom of her champagne glass. Chanel points out that Allie’s not really a big fan of champagne. Chanel decides to write down the recipe for Allie’s favorite drink instead.

Johnny asks if they are all on the same page. Jake agrees to striking while the iron is hot. Johnny says he will call Mr. Shin for a board meeting and steps out. Jake calls Johnny an arrogant son of a bitch. Jake tells Gabi again that he’s sorry for interrupting whatever he walked in on. Gabi claims it was nothing. Gabi argues that they need Johnny’s votes to get what they want and she knows what she’s doing, so she asks Jake to trust her. Devil Johnny stands outside the room with his phone. Jake then gets a text from Maggie, wanting to see him. Gabi sees it and asks what that was about.

Ciara asks Julie if she thinks the Devil possessed Doug again. Julie brings up the fire breaking out on top of the stove a couple nights ago when it wasn’t even on. Ben asks if she thinks it could have been The Devil that did it. Julie points out that it broke out just before she was leaving to bring them the cross. Ciara mentions Johnny bringing it over. Julie talks about Johnny showing up to talk to Doug about this awful movie he plans to make. Ben says that Johnny told them that Julie was busy putting out fires in a joking kind of way. Julie assures it was no joke. Julie cries that this can’t be happening again.

Allie tells Ava that it means so much to her that they have a great relationship because of Henry and Tripp, but even if they didn’t, it would never affect how she answers Tripp. Ava is relieved and decides she should let her go because she has a big night ahead of her. Ava hugs Allie and reminds her to act surprised. Allie assures there will be no worries there.

Chanel gives Tripp her drink recipe. Tripp agrees to whatever he can do to help her in court. Chanel says they might have to rethink that since when she asked him, she didn’t know he was just about to become Johnny’s brother-in-law. Tripp points out that’s only if Allie says yes. Chanel tells him to make sure it’s cool with Allie if he testifies. Tripp assures that it will be as Allie feels the same about Johnny as he does and has even started calling him the evil twin.

Devil Johnny smiles while using his phone as Jake gets another text from Maggie that it’s urgent. Jake says it must have to do with Victor and Titan. Jake says he will let Gabi know what she says but he doesn’t plan on doing much business talk. Jake then kisses Gabi as Devil Johnny watches from the doorway.

Ciara asks Julie if Doug has been okay lately. Julie jokes that he hasn’t locked her in the freezer again. Ciara asks if Doug has been acting out of character. Julie assures that he’s back to being the most wonderful husband in the world again. Julie brings up when the Devil left Doug and went in to Marlena, she was in the room with him. Julie points out that Doug was not at the exorcism so there’s no way the Devil could have gone back to possess him. Ben asks if that’s how these things work. Julie confirms it’s what she is told. Julie apologizes for disturbing them and guesses she is getting crazy. Julie just wants them to be well and safe as she hugs Ciara. Julie jokes that they are lucky they don’t have a gas stove. Julie wishes them a wonderful Happy Valentine’s Day. Ciara sends her love to Doug as Julie then exits. Ben talks about how it doesn’t make any sense because there’s nothing wrong with the nail or the cross. Ciara says it’s scaring her. Ciara asks what Ben is thinking. Ben responds that maybe Julie is right that there is no way The Devil could have gone back in to Doug, but maybe he could have jumped into somebody else.

Melinda tells the man that Nicole is not a reporter and accuses her of witness tampering. Melinda warns her to get out before she gets thrown out. Melinda suggests Nicole call a lawyer unless she wants to join Rafe in prison.

Tripp calls Ava to thank her for helping him get ready for tonight. Ava asks how he’s doing. Tripp wishes he could fast forward to dinner. Tripp asks Ava to pick up cranberry juice and some limes. Tripp comments that Allie is going to be so surprised..

Chanel finds Allie in the town square and remarks that she looks like she’s contemplating the meaning of life. Allie responds that she kind of is as she just found out from Ava that Tripp is going to propose tonight. Chanel reveals that she knows because Tripp told her because he wanted her opinion of the ring. Chanel assures that she will love it. Chanel knows Tripp wanted it to be a surprise but asks what Allie is going to say now that she knows.

Review of “The Batman: The Complete Series”

DVD Review!

The Batman: The Complete Series (2004) (Blu-ray + Digital) DVD cover

“The Batman: The Complete Series” (2004) (Blu-ray + Digital) Review by Suzanne 2/25/22

This is one of the best Batman animated series. The first great series was “Batman: The Animated Series,” which ran from 1992-1995. It was groundbreaking in terms of animation, story and Batman mythos. This series was also very good, but they did a completely different take on Batman. This Batman is younger. Batman, Alfred, Robin, Barbara and The Penguin are not big name actors, but they do a fantastic job. Rino Romano is great as Bruce/Batman. Alastair Duncan voices Alfred, who is very droll. Most of the rest ARE voiced by actors you’ve heard of, such as Ming-Na Wen, Mitch Pileggi, Gina Gershon, and Jason Marsden.

They really do a fantastic job of bringing out all of the characters and their personalities.  If you haven’t seen this one, you should. It would also make a great gift.  The Blu-ray version has many great features that I enjoyed watching.  The new featurette, “The Dark Dynasty Continues,” explains all about the making of the series. It’s really informative and interesting.

Interview with actors, director and writer of “State of the Union”

TV Interview!

"State of the Union" panel

Interview with actors Brendan Gleeson, Patricia Clarkson, and Esco Jouléy; director Stephen Frears and EP Nick Hornby of “State of the Union” on SundanceTV by Suzanne 2/10/22

This was such a fun and funny TCA (Television Critics Association) panel to listen to. These are great actors in an emotional show. You should check it out if you can. It airs on Sundance and SundanceNow. They’re only 10 minute episodes, so it’s easy to watch, in that sense.

Brendan and Patricia were asked if they ever had to adjust the speed of their dialogue to keep the episode length to 10 minutes, or whether they ever went longer than 10 minutes. (I’m sure the editing would take care of this. It’s not like it’s live.) Brendan explained that their director kept them going at a fast pace. However, the way the dialogue is written makes them want to go fast. He found it “exhilarating.” Patricia agreed and said that they had to make the most of their “brilliant 10 minutes.” No time was wasted, and they love how director Frears kept them going. Esco jokingly imitated Frears, saying, “Faster. Faster.” Frears made jokes of his own that all esteemed directors Billy Wilder and Steven Spielberg ever said was “Faster!” This was a very fun panel with a lot of jokes and laughing.

A journalist asked if they felt the same frustrations as Scott did (ordering coffee, etc.) and whether they were on his side in the story, or more on Ellen’s side. Brendan replied that he wasn’t familiar with a lot of the subjects addressed in the show, such as using the correct pronouns. Esco helped him with that. He said, “it was very liberating to explore how gender has become such a kind of imprisoning definition.” He loves how the writing makes Scott very curious about things, even though he does complain a lot. Esco chimed in to say he learned from the script, too. Nick added that he didn’t have the same problems as Scott does in the show, but he does “completely understand the mindset,” which is how he was able to write it. He agrees with Brendan that he “discovered a lot of things through the writing and then through talking to Esco.” He explained that “I go into a complicated coffee order, then it’s difficult the first time, and then I order the same thing 3,000 times in a row.” This made everyone laugh. Nick quoted one of Scott’s lines, where he was yelling at himself for saying the wrong pronoun: “Oh, Scott, you stupid old man.” Nick confided that someone had pointed that out to him one time, and he said it to himself. So it worked out well to give it to Scott. Everyone laughed at that, too.

Esco admired how Scott was able to recover from making a mistake a recognizing that someone else wasn’t pleased by it. He said, “Because at the end of the day, we all want to be respected. This person just wants it differently than you and it’s like, okay, I’m going to go on this journey with you to respect you the best way I can because I appreciate you.”

Patricia joined in the conversation by explaining that there were non-binary assistants and others on their set, so they had to do in real life what their characters were doing on-screen, so it was “wonderful” and helpful for them to learn all of these things. She noted that it was “quite remarkable at times.” Nick joked that “I think it’s kind of a miracle that Brendan, Stephen, and I managed to get through it without Esco stalking off the set and never coming back.” Everyone laughed and joined in the joking. Esco complimented them all for being “amazing.” He points out that the intention matters. If someone isn’t being mean (just ignorant), then he’s happy to help them learn because he’s meeting them for the first time, too.

Patricia told Esco that he’s “one of the coolest people ever put on this planet.” She went on to compliment him more. Brendan added in his own praise, too. Esco talked about how we all “make assumptions” so it’s amazing how people can see you differently that you see yourself. In the show, Jay is able to “know Scott even more.” There was more joking around after that.

A journalist asked Nick if there was any difference for him, writing for men or women. Nick says that he just writes for people, and there are so many different kinds of people out there to write about. He starts with a character and then builds the story from there. He doesn’t think of them as being a particular gender. A writer’s job is to write everyone. Of writing people of different sexuality than him, he said, “you’ve just got to hope for the best, observe as much as you can, and get people to read.” He asks for help from others if he’s not sure about certain things, which he did for the part of Jay. He turned the question over to Patricia. She replied, “Oh, honey, I’ll take anything you want to write me, any day of the week.” This led to more laughter, of course. Then Patricia praised him a lot, saying, “I’ve never had such a delicious, glorious feast of words.” She says that his dialogue is very fast and funny. She added, “it moves so quickly between the emotional and the poignant and the poetic and then into brilliant comedy. It’s just all in one quick breath sometimes and it’s an actor’s dream. It’ll kill you, but it’s an actor’s dream.” There was more laughing.

Esco piped up that he really loved that he writes for humans because once he read the script and saw that Jay was a real person, he had to do it. He added, “it made me feel so three-dimensional.” Brendan joked, “I think it’s worth mentioning on top of that that men are humans, too.” He also praised Nick’s writing. He noticed that, “even when they’re chatting to each other, the whole idea of being able to learn and listen, and also then a certain generosity of spirit, I mean it’s what obviously has united this particular troop.” He said it was a “a joy” to work with these people because they were “so committed and so vigorous in what they were doing, but also emotionally brave.” He went on and on, but you get the idea.

Esco was getting emotional and said he missed them all, confessing that he felt all the feels at that moment. He just thought it was “amazing” and it made him feel “like a superhero and we were on the A-Team.”

Another press person asked Brendan and Patricia if the dialogue, which is sometimes “so raw and painful” ever made them feel things about their own lives or reflect on their own mistakes. Brenda replied that as an actor, you always have to use part of your own experience to fit your character. Patricia told us that it was never easy to say these type of lines as an actor, that it’s “brutal.”

Brendan added that he can really relate to Scott’s confusion, and Nick agreed. The press person agreed that it’s probably “a male thing…We’re all baffled. We’re all baffled in relationships.” There was a lot of laughing and agreeing.

Nick was asked a question that had nothing to do with the show. He was asked whether any of his other books would be turned into TV shows. He also asked his opinion about “Ted Lasso.” Nick refused to talk about “Ted Lasso.” He enjoys when he books become movies or TV shows, so it’s fine with him if it happens more. He said that back when he sold “High Fidelity,” it was a new experience for him. He related that he made “incredible friendships with people that I might not otherwise have met, one of them the director of this series and another one with the writer of the original movie.” It allowed him to learn about other industries. He mentioned that another TV series of his novel “Funny Girl” will be coming out later this year, so he’s enjoyed getting to know those people.

NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES – January 27, 2021 – SundanceTV announced that it has renewed the Emmy®award-winning short form drama series, State of the Union, for a second season. Produced by See-Saw Films, Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges), Patricia Clarkson (Sharp Objects) and Esco Jouléy (High Maintenence) will lead the second installment of the innovative format, 10 episodes, each 10 minutes in length, which commenced production in January.

Amongst the bickering they also discuss betrayals from their past, how they’re changing as people, and what the future of their relationship might look like in a changing world.

“The first season of State of the Union was a triumph of storytelling form, captivating audiences – 10 minutes at a time – by smartly and authentically exploring our fundamental humanity and curiosity around what makes people think, feel, love and interact,” said Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks. “We are thrilled to once again partner with the great Nick Hornby and Stephen Frears, and welcome Brendan, Patricia and Esco, to break new ground in short-form storytelling with a series built on the most universal and unifying element of all – the human relationship.

Nick Hornby Bio

Nick Hornby is an Oscar®-nominated screenwriter and award-winning author. He won an Emmy for his short form series State Of The Union directed by Stephen Frears and starring Rosamund Pyke and Chris O’Dowd. He adapted Nina Stibbe’s memoir Love, Nina into a BBC1 television series and received Academy Award® and BAFTA nominations for his screenplay adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s novel Brooklyn, which was directed by John Crowley. The film starred Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent, received three Oscar nominations in total and was awarded BAFTA’s Outstanding British Film. Nick’s previous film and television projects include his Oscar and BAFTA-nominated adaptation of Lynn Barber’s memoir An Education, which was directed by Lone Scherfig and starred Carey Mulligan, Peter Sarsgaard, Dominic Cooper, Rosamund Pike and Emma Thompson, his adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s New York Times bestselling memoir into the film Wild, which starred Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern, and his adaptation of his own memoir for the screenplay of Fever Pitch starring Colin Firth.

Nick’s best-selling books have served as a rich stream of inspiration for filmmakers: the British film of Fever Pitch was re-made by the Farrelly brothers, starring Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon; High Fidelity was directed by Stephen Frears, starring John Cusack and Jack Black, and in 2020 was re-imagined as a TV series starring Zoe Kravitz; About A Boy was directed by the Weitz brothers, starring Hugh Grant, Rachel Weisz and Toni Collette; A Long Way Down was directed by Pascal Chaumeil, starring Pierce Brosnan, Aaron Paul and Toni Collette, and his young adult novel Slam was adapted into an Italian language feature directed by Andrea Molaioli.

His non-fiction work includes Fever Pitch, 31 Songs, and The Complete Polysyllabic Spree, a collection of Nick’s book columns for US magazine The Believer, to which he continues to contribute a bi-monthly column. Among other recognition for his literature, Nick received the EM Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts & Letters. In 2010, he co-founded the children’s writing charity The Ministry of Stories, located in East London and now expanding to other UK cities.

Stephen Frears Bio

Unanimously regarded as one of Britain’s finest directors, Stephen Frears has always embraced a wide variety of styles, themes and genres. He worked almost exclusively for the small screen in the first 15 years of his career, with programs such as One Fine Day by Alan Bennett and Three Men In A Boat by Tom Stoppard. Stephen’s more recent TV work includes Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight for HBO and Channel 4’s The Deal starring Michael Sheen and David Morrissey. In the mid-1980s he turned to the cinema, shooting The Hit (1984), starring Terence Stamp, John Hurt and Tim Roth. The following year he made My Beautiful Laundrette for Channel 4, which crossed over to big-screen audiences and altered the course of his career. After directing its companion piece Sammy And Rosie Get Laid and the Joe Orton biopic Prick Up Your Ears, he began working in Hollywood, with Dangerous Liaisons and the Grifters (for which he was Oscar®-nominated) among his most notable titles.

Returning closer to home, he directed The Snapper and The Van, two Irish films based on Roddy Doyle stories and, after a second spell of making American films (The Hi-Lo Country and High Fidelity), based himself largely in Britain. Frears showed his versatility with two vastly different movies – Dirty Pretty Things, a realistic account of immigrant life in London, and Mrs Henderson Presents, a nostalgic backstage comedy-drama. For his 2006 film The Queen he was again nominated for an Oscar. His subsequent films included Cheri and Tamara Drewe. He followed these with Philomena, starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, which won a BAFTA and was nominated for three others, along with three Golden Globe and four Oscar nominations; The Program, which starred Ben Foster as seven time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong; and Florence Foster Jenkins, starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, which received various accolades including a Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture and an Oscar nomination for Streep. Frears followed this with Victoria & Abdul, which starred Judi Dench, who received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance. Frears’ return to TV was with the acclaimed three-part BBC television series A Very English Scandal, which won Stephen a BAFTA for Best Director. He followed this up with an Emmy win for Nick Hornby’s short form series State Of The Union – starring Rosamund Pike and Chris O’Dowd; and most recently directed James Graham’s QUIZ for ITV starring Michael Sheen and Matthew Macfadyen.

Transcript provided by Markku

Brooke: Straight to voicemail. Again!

Hope: I don`t know what to say, mom. I mean… have you tried email?

Brooke: Honey, what`s the point? If he doesn`t even wanna talk to me.

Hope: Mom? Is this really what you want? You want to make your marriage work with Ridge?

Brooke: Yes! Of course.

Hope: Ok. Then I will support you. And we can`t give up.

Brooke: Where are you going?

Hope: I am going to see the one person who might be actually able to make this right with Ridge.

Steffy: Do you know how happy I am right now?

Thomas: I`m pretty sure I do.

Taylor: Yeah, I think it`s safe to say we all do.

Steffy: We`re really proud of you, dad. You finally realized this is where you belong.

Sheila: Oh, come on, Deacon. Just flash that sexy smile of yours. You should be thrilled. Brooke`s epic romance with Ridge, finally coming to an end. You should be celebrating.

Deacon: I just know how much she cares about the guy. I mean if she`s really losing him, if that`s really happening, I can only imagine how heartbroken she is.

Paris: I know you want this as much as I do. And if you`re feeling guilty, don`t. You know Zende and I agreed to see other people.

Carter: Agreeing is one thing, but feelings might change if it actually happens.

Paris: It already has. Zende`s dating Sequoyah. And I don`t even feel the slightest bit jealous about it. If she`s a better match for him, then he deserves a chance to figure that out. And if I`m being honest, I`m figuring out a lot myself.

Carter: Um, Zende, he`s, ah, he`s probably thinking about you right now, wondering what you`re doing. You should go, you should, you should be with him.

Paris: You know you don`t want that the way you`re kissing me.

Carter: Why would you risk the future you can have? Think about the things that he can give you, Paris, things that I can`t. He can give you prestige, opportunities, connections. You`d be crazy to give that up for me.

Paris: Well then I guess you can call me crazy.

Sheila: You should go to Brooke. I mean she needs a shoulder, now could be a great opportunity for you to actually….

Deacon: You gotta go.

Sheila: Me? She doesn`t want my shoulder.

Deacon: Get out of here, alright? Hope`s coming. Come on. Go. She can`t see us together.

Hope: Dad. Hey.

Deacon: Hey, sweetheart. Hi.

Hope: How`s the head?

Deacon: Works a lot better when it`s not used as a punching bag. What`s wrong?

Hope: Oh, I think you could probably guess.

Deacon: Your mom and Ridge, yeah. I was afraid something like that was going to happen after he stormed off the other day, but… your mom, she`s usually really good at calming him down, I figured she would have by now, you know, talked him off the ledge. No? How`s she dealing with it? She OK?

Hope: She`s devastated. She thinks that she`s lost Ridge forever.

Deacon: Yeah.

Taylor: Steffy, I appreciate your excitement. And yours. But this is a… this is a complicated situation all around. Be happy, yes, but also be mindful of what this means for your father and Brooke. You can`t forget that.

Steffy: We won`t. We`re here for you, dad. Anything we can do to help you navigate the separation.

Thomas: That`s right. Steffy and I have your back. And mom does too. But you already know that. It`s why you came home. I could see it in the way that you look at her. The kind of respect you have for her, the admiration. Mom`s exactly what you need.

Deacon: Well, kiddo, it ain`t over til it`s over. And with Ridge and your mom, it`s never over.

Hope: I don`t know. Apparently he says that he can`t do it anymore. He feels like mom`s betrayed him.

Deacon: Yeah, with me. My jaw remembers. Listen, she`s gonna convince him otherwise, it was just a few drinks, that`s it. Alright, and a kiss. A drunken kiss, not… not like a marriage-ending kiss, you know? Even Ridge has to realize that.

Hope: I don`t think he does. I guess he wants to move on.

Deacon: Move on? What, no time for himself, no introspection, he just wants to… move on? With Taylor, I`m assuming.

Hope: Yeah.

Deacon: Huh.

Hope: So apparently he wants peace and stability in his life and he believes that my mother can`t give that to him.

Deacon: Of course Brooke can give that to him. I mean if he can`t see that she`s the one…

Hope: Dad, I think the only thing that he sees is you and his disgust and his anger.

Deacon: And being with his other family he can pretend I don`t exist.

Hope: Possibly. But he loves mom.

Deacon: He cares about her on his terms. I mean, God forbid she has her own opinion.

Hope: Yeah, I think there might be some truth to that, I mean heaven forbid that she, I don`t know, give you a chance or come to your defense when you`re getting beaten up.

Deacon: Yeah, you should`ve seen him when your mom came in there and told him to get his hands off me, said that I hadn`t done anything. I mean he was angry, but he was more than that. He was… he was crushed.

Hope: And he still turned his back and walked away.

Deacon: Yeah, but it pained him to do it. And that part of him wanted to put his arms around your mom and forgive her. And that`s….that`s why I`m so surprised that you`re telling me all this. I mean, you really think that this is, this is it? You really think that Ridge has finally given up on your mom?

Carter: You have no idea how much I wanna see where this can go. How much I wanna kiss you. Touch you.

Paris: You`re feeling what I`m feeling. How good we could be together.

Carter: Could, yeah. Doesn`t mean we should.

Paris: Carter, don`t ask me to give up on this before it even starts.

Carter: That`s exactly what you have to do. We have to put a stop to this before we cross the line, before feelings get hurt.

Paris: Who says they will?

Carter: I do. Paris, I`ve never been able to make a relationship work.

Paris: Well maybe with the right woman that`ll change. She`s out there, Carter. And I`m not saying she`s definitely me. But you know what, I`m throwing my name in the hat. Because this chemistry we have, this connection between us? We owe it to ourselves to try.

Deacon: Look, here`s the deal. Even if Ridge says it`s over, even if he`s off pouting, having one of his epic tantrums… thank you very much, Stephanie and Eric for not course-correcting that, by the way, but I mean, come on, he`s done this a million times, right? You know, he storms off, says he`s never coming back… he always comes back, right? Come on. I mean, that`s why they`ve had a thousand weddings.

Hope: And now the other love of his life is back in town. And… they spent the night together.

Deacon: Taylor? For real?

Hope: Yeah. So, obviously mom is devastated. And that`s why I wanted to come here. Because I asked her… does she really want to save her marriage to Ridge. And she said yes. So I told her that I would support her. So that`s why I want to talk to you.

Deacon: I mean, honey, I feel for Brooke, I really do, but I… I don`t know what I could do.

Hope: You… you could talk to Ridge. Make him understand. Convince him not to give up on my mom.

Thomas: You know I wish that Phoebe could be here to see our family back together.

Steffy: She`d be just as excited as we are.

Thomas: Yeah. Hope you understand what this means to us, dad, you coming back home. I mean, look, I know… I know you had this connection. Brooke. An attraction that you`ve had with her that`s…. it`s a long time right? Years and years since before Steffy and I were born. I understand the power of an attraction like that and… but that doesn`t excuse the abuse, you know… the drama, the pain, the betrayal that you`ve gone through with her. So thank you. Thank you for seeing that. And thank you for giving yourself the life that you deserve.

Brooke: Ridge, is that you? Oh.

Sheila: Hello, Brooke.

Brooke: What do you want, Sheila?

Sheila: You know I mean I just happened to be in the area and I thought I`d stop by.

Brooke: You know, I`m kind of busy right now, so…

Sheila: Yeah, busy failing at another marriage? I heard. Destiny, it`s not what it`s cracked up to be, is it?

Carter: After everything with Quinn… after everything was done I could barely look at myself in the mirror. Knowing what I did to Eric and I won`t do the same thing to Zende. I`m not letting you risk your future with the Forrester family.

Paris: Zende will understand. We`re not…

Carter: I`m not worth it.

Paris: Yes, you are. You just don`t see it yet.

Deacon: Alright, I`m just making sure I`m clear on this, daughter. You want me to go talk to Ridge? The guy that doesn`t listen to reason? Who hates my guts, and oh hey, by the way, physically attacked me the last time I saw him. That Ridge?

Hope: Mm-hmm. Yep. Cause doesn`t that send a message? That, in spite of everything that you just said, that you would still go to him and show him that you don`t want Brooke. I know you care about mom. And I know you want to make her happy, and so do I. So do it, dad. Save mom`s marriage.

Steffy: Thomas is right. It`s an immense relief, knowing that you could have peace. The contentment you deserve.

Ridge: Okay, I`m, umm, ah…

Thomas: Hey, ah, maybe we ought to…

Steffy: Yeah. I love you.

Taylor: I love you back. Bye. Hi.

Ridge: Hi.

Taylor: Look, I… I know that Brooke is such a big part of you and I`m sure your head is spinning right now.

Ridge: You… but I… I feel safe. That`s a weird thing to say, I feel supported, but… but you`re right, no… my head is spinning. It is, because I don`t know what happened, I don`t know why Brooke started drinking, why she would make out with Deacon, spend the night with him, I don`t… I don`t understand why she would throw everything away.

Brooke: Get out! You need to leave.

Sheila: I just got here.

Brooke: I mean it, Sheila. I`m in no mood.

Sheila: In no mood? For what? For threatening me? For getting in my face, telling me that I will have no place in my son`s life, my grandson`s? I love Finn. I love him with all my heart and yet you were thrilled at the thought that I may never get a chance to know him. But you didn`t know what you were talking about, did you? Yes, one of us is losing a chance with a loved one today. But it sure as hell isn`t me.

Carter: You have to go.

Paris: Is that what you want? Is it?

Ridge: What?

Taylor: When I, when I hear you talk about Brooke I, I hear the pain in your voice. You’re mourning your marriage. It`s OK, Ridge. I… I don`t expect you to stifle your feelings. I don`t, I don`t expect anything from you really. Just… just be here with me in this moment while we figure this out. Let`s spend some time together, find out where this might lead… God, it`s been, it`s been really… really great being in your arms. Kissing those lips. Where we go from here, who knows. But whatever happens, I`ll support you. You`ll never doubt my love for you. You`ll never question it. I won`t betray you. I won`t let you down. I`m here. I`m right here. In this moment.

Sheila: Ridge is finally free of you, Brooke. And he`s going back to Taylor where he belongs.

Brooke: I am not listening to this. You really need to go, Sheila.

Sheila: Because you know I`m right. Ridge deserves to be with someone like Taylor, someone with class, dignity, someone who understands forgiveness. Are you, are you really surprised that he would be drawn to a woman like her? Someone with that much goodness, it… it must feel amazing after all the years that he spent…

Brooke: All the years that he spent with me? Is that what you’re trying to say?

Sheila: Your husband was gone for one night and you`re making out with Deacon. Can you even imagine Taylor doing something like that?

Brooke: I was drunk.

Sheila: Which really isn`t great for your image, is it? Sounds tremendous: no, I only cheat on my husband when I`m drunk!

Brooke: I`m not a drinker. Not anymore.

Sheila: Except for holidays.

Brooke: I don`t know what happened that night. I have no idea what made me drink. And you know what that feels like, Sheila? Being completely out of control? I am not giving up on my marriage to Ridge. I`m not going to let one drunken night ruin what I have with my husband.
