ms. Bailey is conked out. Oh, if only she slept this well at the beach house. She’ll get used to the new digs. Just give it a minute. Yeah, we’ll probably be out of there by the time that happens. Yeah, peter will be locked up, and — and bailey will go home. Yeah, and we can officially stop pretending. Right. Right.

[ Baby crying ] Oh, I — I — oh, no. Let me get it. Thanks. Wiley is so excited he gets to see his cousin bailey today. He misses her. Yeah. So you ready to head the house? I’m actually waiting for my mom to drop by. I still can’t find any record of my birth certificate, and I need to get that passport application in. Oh. Oui, oui, you do.

[ Chuckles ] Is “oui” the only french word you know?


[ Laughs ] Anyway, I’m really hoping my mom has a copy. Well, can’t go to paris without one. Kristina: Stop the presses. Local editor found unharmed, coaxed from behind the desk with caffeine. Oh, bless you. Mmm. Ah. Hello, my daughter. Hello, mother. I came to observe you in your natural habitat. Hmm. “Truth never damages a cause that is just.” New? I like it. Harmony gave it to me. Just the person I wanted to talk about. Oh, thank you. Boss. Employee. You have a minute?

[ Laughs ] I want to get a female perspective on something. On what? What does it mean when a woman kisses a man? Are you ready? Guests are arriving. It’s time to open the doors. First, I need to tell you something. Uh-oh. Unless it’s not an uh-oh? No, it’s definitely an uh-oh. Damn. Okay, austin remembered something. Something as in…? Hearing you and me talk the night louise was born. You’re looking sharp, leo. It’s not itchy. Leo’s wearing a t-shirt under his suit instead of a button-down. Oh, yeah, button-downs can be itchy, right? What’s with that? Anyway, it doesn’t matter. As soon as our mother walks in the room, no one’s going to notice us anyway. You can say that again. Hey. Hey. [ Laughs ] What are you doing here? Hiding. Well, I hate to break it to you, but you’re not going to be very successful looking like that. Oh, still the charmer, I see.

[ Laughs ] Ah, speaking the truth. Hiding? Yeah. That’s not usually your style. I don’t feel like myself these days. I’m nervous to see sonny. How ridiculous is that? What exactly are you worried about? I don’t want our issues to cast a shadow. I mean, today’s supposed to be about olivia and ned. And you don’t think sonny gets that? Here’s hoping. Thank you for officiating today. Oh, please, it’s an honor. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world. I’m just so sorry that kevin couldn’t be here. It’s another patient emergency. Yeah. We are, too. Sorry. Excuse me. Wow, you look —

[ Chuckles ] You look really good. Thank you. How you doing? I’m good. I’m good. Is carly here? Yeah, she came early to help me get ready. You know, I would have understood if you couldn’t make it today. I know it’s hard to celebrate other people’s happiness when you’re not exactly in the best place yourself. Carly and I, we’re going to — we’re going to get together before you know it. Yeah? Just you bet on it.

You’re a doctor, last I checked. I’m still a doctor. Okay. So I’m pretty sure human sexuality was covered in your studies. It was. I’m a grown man, and you’re a grown woman.

[ Laughs ] Right? So I’m asking you, if you kiss a man who’s your friend, why would you apologize? Oh, wait, so I — I assume we’re talking about — yeah, maxie. We’re talking about maxie. Was it good? Yeah. I mean, I — I thought so. Okay, so why didn’t you ask her what she meant? I — well — her mom kind of interrupted us. Oh, so this happened in high school? Oh, you’re hilarious. Well, I try. So what happened was, um… maxie and I, we went to pautuck with anna and felicia because we were trying to jog our memories about what happened the night that louise was born. Oh, wow. And? Did either of you remember what happened? Yes. No, I — I — I don’t know. I mean, that part’s even more confusing than the kissing. I tried to convince austin that he was misremembering, if that’s even a word, but I don’t think it worked. You have to try harder, maxie. Try harder? Yes! I did everything I could think of. I even kissed him. Oh, wow, that is an interesting and creative strategy. We’ll revisit that. It wasn’t a strategy. Austin’s gone above and beyond to help me out. The problem is, what he thinks is helping could probably ruin everything. Okay, we shouldn’t panic. We just need to come up with a plan. You think? Okay. What’s going on in here? Oh, you two have your heads together? That doesn’t look suspicious at all while all the guests are milling around outside. Granny, we have everything under control. Hmm. My confidence knows no bounds. Thank you, by the way, tracy, for keeping all of this under wraps. Well, peter august is a despicable human being who doesn’t deserve to be a father, and I am very, very sorry that you are separated from louise. Well, I know she’s in good hands. But yes, I can’t wait to have my daughter back in my arms. Can I take your coat? Sure. I was so happy to get your call. So what do you want to talk about? I need a copy of my birth certificate. Oh. How come? I can’t find mine. It must have gotten lost in all the moving around. I don’t know. And normally, it wouldn’t be anything urgent, but now I need to get a passport. Where are you headed? Michael’s taking me to paris. Oh, how wonderful. Hi, michael. Hi, harmony. So are you guys taking wiley with you, or…? Uh, no, not this time. I’m gonna head up. I’m going to see how my mom and dad are doing. Okay, I’ll be right behind you with wiley. Alright. Nice seeing you. You too. Anyway, the first step to getting a passport is submitting a copy of my birth certificate, and I can’t find any record of it online. How can that be? Just so you know, harmony is a non-issue. We will not be spending time together anymore. Because of me? She and I both think it’s best. So that’s a yes. Except — and I really want you to hear me on this — sam way overstepped when she told harmony to stay away from you. I mean, she just assumed that your friendship would make me uncomfortable. It doesn’t? Whatever I feel, it wasn’t sam’s place to speak for me. W– honey, she was just protecting you. I’m sure there was a sincere desire to protect me, but sam was also trying to avoid focusing on her own mess of a life. You take my breath away. Stop it. No, it’s true, ma. You look beautiful. Right, leo? I love your sparkly dress. That’s why I wore a sparkly dress. Honestly, I am so grateful to have all my guys here with me today.

[ Chuckles ] We’re a lucky crew. We sure are. Okay, you guys can come in. Hopefully, you’ll deem it worth the wait.

[ Gasps ] Oh. Maxie [Laughs] It’s just gorgeous. You captured the mood perfectly. And what mood would that be? Oh, you know. Bliss. Gratitude. Love. Dad, I’m so glad this day came. And again, I am just — I’m so sorry if I — no, no. Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah. No, no, no. We’re not doing any of that today. Today, we are only looking forward. We’re not looking back. It means everything to us that we’re all here together. It means everything to me, too. Any word on cyrus? All’s quiet on that front. How are you, sonny? Well, you know, things were a little bumpy for a little bit, but…things are back on track. Good. Yeah. You know, everything’s definitely looking up.

[ Chuckles ] You mean with you and carly? Yeah, I just got to prove to carly that we belong together.

ll, memories can be trickyand not always accurate. I mean, maxie suffered severe emotional trauma that night, and you were knocked unconscious, so I’m not really shocked that the recall’s a little fuzzy. I guess. So back to that kiss. What about it? Only maxie can tell you what it meant, so you need to pull up those big-boy pants and talk to her. Okay, no problem. Is there a b option? Uh, call her. No, I can’t do that. She’s coordinating at the quartermaines’. She’s in charge of ned and olivia’s vow renewal. To which you were invited. To which I declined. You might want to revisit that decision. What, just to see maxie? Come on, there’s not even the tiniest little part of you that wants to get to know your family? I already know them.

[ Sighs, chuckles ] Know them better. Maybe even get close. Alright. Maybe you’re right. Maybe I did decline that invitation a little too quickly.

[ Chuckles ] Ah, da-da-da-da-da-da, I’m only 15 minutes late, so technically, I am still on time. That is not what “technically” means. For me, I am still on time.

[ Laughs ] Hello. Hello.

[ Sighs ]

[ Laughs ] Alright, I should — no, you don’t have to leave. No, it’s cool. I have someplace I got to be, right? Yeah, you do. Thanks for the talk. -Good luck. -Thank you.

[ Smooches ] He seems nice. He’s straight. Oh. And I just sent him off into the arms of another woman. Maxie: According to britt, peter’s getting transferred to pentonville tonight. Ugh. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. That’s got to be some comfort, right? He’s going to be behind bars. Yes, and once peter is finally locked away, this whole thing is going to be over. And once that happens and this nightmare is behind us, what are you gonna do about austin? What do you mean? Uh, it’s pretty obvious that he’s into you. Obvious to who? Um, everyone. But the real question is, are you into him? I mean, I think so, but it’s hard to tell when all I’m doing is lying to his face. I can see that being an obstacle. I can’t think about austin right now. You don’t think he’s going to show up here, do you? Here, with my family? That’s the last place he’d want to be. Thank you. Um, yeah, I’m sure I have a copy of your birth certificate with my important documents, so I will look for it right away. Thank you. Thank you. It’s just so strange I couldn’t find it online. Yeah, well, you know, maybe not every piece of information is on the internet yet. And not to rush you, but — could I put a rush on it? Time is of the essence if I want this passport. Which you most certainly do. So yes, I will look for it right away. Oh, great. You want to say hi to wiley? Yeah, I would love that. Great. Stay right here. I’ll go get him. Okay. Alright, cool. Yeah, keep me posted. Is something up? Uh…no. It can wait. My mother would kill me if I missed this ceremony. Is it sad that just hearing the words “keep me posted” makes me crazy nostalgic?

[ Chuckles ] Uh, yeah, kind of. You’re missing the job? Big time. Hmm. I just — I hate being in limbo. Mm. Yeah, I hear that. Is sam coming? Yeah, she said she was. Why do you say it like that? Nothing, never mind. Don’t worry about it. Oh, come on. Tell me.

[ Chuckles ] No, it’s just that, you know, ever since drew came back, sam and i have sort of been… having problems? No, see, that’s the problem. It’s not anything as tangible as that. We just — we had some good momentum going for a while, and then drew came back, and all that kind of stopped. And, you know, we were full-steam ahead for a little while there. But now you’re stuck in neutral. What is the mess in sam’s life now? Okay, maybe “mess” is too harsh. Let’s just say sam seems conflicted. And who can blame her? I mean, torn between two men? Oh. Kristina! I mean, if I were sam and I had to choose between dante and drew, it’d be tough. Both are charming. Both are handsome. Both are sincerely good guys. And drew is scout’s father, so he has that in his favor. But dante has been with sam for months, helping her rebuild after she and jason split. I hope you didn’t share any of this with sam. No, of course not. I mean, none of this is really any of my business, but you’re our mom, so… that’s true. I am your mom. And as such, I get a feeling you’re talking about sam in order to not talk about what you came here to talk about, and I think really, for once, we need to talk about it. So I want you to tell me how you feel about my friendship with harmony. Hey, laura. Laura: Hi. You look gorgeous. You clean up pretty well yourself. Laura, can I borrow you for a minute? You may. Is something wrong? No, I just wanted to get you out of the line of fire. Good job. I miss you. I just saw you this morning for breakfast. Yeah, I know, I know. But you know what I mean. Listen, I’m not trying to pressure you. I just — I just want to tell you how I feel. I mean, we can still be honest with each other, right? Well, I hope so. We see each other tonight, right? Yeah. Yeah, I told you we could meet for about an hour and talk. I’m not going to back out. Mom. Hey. Oh, how are you? I’m alright. Alright? Where’s wiley? Oh, he and willow should be up in a minute. Oh, okay, great. Well, I’m just going to go check on olivia and see if she needs anything. Is everything okay? What do you mean, “is everything” — yeah, it’s not like we’re a bomb ready to go off. You sure? Yes. I’m calm. I just want to work things out. You know, I’m gonna — I got everything under control. Hey, come here!


[ Laughs ] Champagne? I promise it will be pathogen-free. Leo’s a trip. Yeah, he is. No, I’m fine. I just — I have to stay sharp tonight. Right. The bold move you were talking about with carly. That’s the one. So no wiley? Oh, he was intercepted by monica. They’re up in the playroom. Oh. I see your parents are here. Yep. [ Sighs ] Have they crossed paths? Yeah. And? And it was painfully polite, which is the best anyone can expect right now. Oh, how did everything go with harmony? Was she able to help you with your birth certificate? She thinks she has a copy, so paris, here we come.

Oui, oui.

[ Laughs ] You don’t need my permission to be friends with someone. It’s not just someone, and you know it. It’s harmony. You’re my daughter, and I love you, and hurting you, that’s clearly not an option. But I need to know how you actually feel about this. So let me give you an example. If you came home and, say, harmony were over for dinner, would that make you uncomfortable? Maybe give me a heads-up just until I get used to it. So, yes, you would be uncomfortable. I don’t know what you want me to say. I want you to say what you really feel. Seeing harmony brings up a lot for me. Everything that happened at dawn of day. How utterly stupid I was. You were not stupid. You were trusting. It’s different. Shiloh was a master manipulator. Intellectually, I know that harmony was just another one of his victims. But you can’t forget what she did. So, when do you go back to amsterdam, tracy? Actually, later today. Oh. And after the next memorial, then what? Well, I have some ideas, and I actually managed to remove a piece of the ice princess that I’m going to use to fund my future endeavors.

[ Sighs ] You know how I feel about that diamond, but I wish you the very best. Thank you.

[ Door opens ] Hey, look.

[ Sighs ] Thank you for your kind invitation. I hope it still stands. Of course. Welcome. Thanks. We’re very glad you’re here. That’s very sweet.

[ Gasps ] I know you! Yeah! That’s amazing. You have the best memory, leo. I’m dr. Austin. Oh, wow. That’s your fidget spinner. And you still have it. That’s great. You’re very good at looking after your things. Yes, the things he cares about. Is it time yet? Well, you know, yeah. I guess it is. Why don’t you round everybody up? We’re starting!

[ Laughs ] That’s one way to do it.

[ Laughs ] Okay, you heard the man. It’s time for me to marry the woman of my dreams. Again.

All I can say is I want to get to a point where seeing harmony doesn’t bother me. I just don’t think that I’m there yet. Fair enough. Sam told me she stopped you from drinking on new year’s eve. Harmony, not sam. When I was in prison, harmony was there for me when I needed someone to be there for me. Sounds like a good friend. She has been. Then you should hang out with her. I really want you to be sure about this. Are you sure? Shiloh preyed on harmony just like the rest of us. And let’s be real — I certainly wouldn’t want someone holding my past against me, so…permission granted. You deserve a great friend. I have a really great daughter. Mm. So, this austin was the new wingman you were talking about the other day. First, clubbing, now a coffee date. Is there something I should know? Oh, trust me, no. He has eyes for another woman. And more importantly, do I have bff competition? Never. Good answer. I’m surprised you wanted to meet here. I mean, isn’t this a little public? Kelly’s? [ Scoffs ] My aunt would never come to a place like this. Oh, so she’s a snob

and controlling? Pretty much.

[ Laughs ]

[ Sighs ] Dare I… ask about peter? He hasn’t relapsed or anything, right? You mean did you end up killing peter with that poison? No, peter’s fine. Enough to be heading back to pentonville tonight, anyway. I wonder if aunt selina will let him get there alive. We are here today to celebrate something really wonderful — the persistence of love. Every couple gets tested. Every couple has problems. It’s how we come through them that matters. Ned and olivia, you have come through yours stronger, more committed, and more in love than ever. Yeah, we have.

[ Chuckles ] Now, I have a sneaky suspicion that you have some things you’d like to say to each other.

[ Laughs ] Ladies first. Okay. [ Sniffles ] Ned.

[ Chuckles ] Ned, ned, ned.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, boy. No, no, no, no. No, it’s all good. I promise. I promise.

[ Sniffles ] You know what else I promise? I promise to love you and cherish you and honor and keep you for the rest of our lives. We will celebrate together, commiserate together. We — we will watch movies and eat chinese food together. We will raise our son together. I like the sound of that. Yeah. When I look into my future and I see you and the three of us and all of you, I just cannot believe how blessed I am. Is it okay if I make some promises, too?

[ Laughs ] Copycat.

[ Laughter ] My beautiful, extraordinary, animal-loving olivia.

[ Laughs ] I, too, vow to love and cherish you, honor and keep you for the rest of our lives. I will fight the good fight with you, and I will celebrate with you, and I will sing duets with you. Slightly off-key. Hey. That’s my wife you’re talking about.

[ Laughs ] And I will raise our son with you. I love you endlessly. I love you, too.

[ Voice breaking ] And how I got this lucky, I will never comprehend, but I am holding on to you, and I’ll be damned if I ever let go. I thought we said we weren’t doing any new rings. I couldn’t resist. And it’s not a replacement ring. It’s a companion ring. It’s perfect. By this renewal of vows in front of family and friends, you have once again proclaimed your commitment to your life together. You better kiss me, if you know what’s good for you.

[ Laughter ] May I? Oh, I think it’s required.

[ Laughs ]

[ Cheers and applause ]

I never expected you to be here. Ned invited me. Well, that, I expected. It’s that you decided to come. Yeah. I said no at first, and then I realized that I want to get to know my family. Well, most of them, anyway.

[ Chuckles ] Plus, I knew you’d be here. An added draw? Maybe. Yeah, who am I kidding? Definitely.

[ Both chuckle ] Congratulations! Thank you.

[ Sighs ] I knew you and olivia could find your way back. Well, thank you for believing that, even when I had my doubts. Oh, some couples are just built for the long haul. They bend, but they never break. Edward and lila were like that. So were alan and I, actually. And I think you and olivia fit that pattern. Then we’re in good company. Well, I would ask you how you’re doing, mom, but you’re absolutely glowing. Yeah, you look really beautiful. Thank you. Thank you, honey. I had no idea how official the whole thing would actually feel. I really feel like a new bride all over again. Well, he better treat you right this time, or he’s going to have to answer to me.

[ Chuckles ] This guy, I mean… I know. Right? Honey… I honestly could not love you any more than I do. I love you too, mom. We meet again. You okay? I just needed a breather. We were perfectly civil, and that’s what makes it so awful. You and sonny? Yeah, I mean, there was no screaming, there was no yelling. Clearly, we can be in the same room together. I mean, that should make me happy, right? That’s a pretty low bar for happiness. But that’s where I am these days. You know, just… trying to keep the peace for our family. Well, I’m going to do my part, and I’m gonna stay clear of sonny, just to be safe. Why? Did something happen between you and sonny? My dad was pract icallylevitating, he was so happy. Oh, I’m just — I’m so glad everything worked out for them. Yeah, ned and olivia seem like the real deal. They definitely are. By the way, I forgot to tell you, you looked — you looked really great today. Yeah? Thanks. You look pretty good, too.

[ Crying on monitor ] Ah. Sounds like someone is awake. Yeah, I’ll get her. I’ll get her.

[ Both chuckle ] Why don’t we both get her? Deal. I walked in on sonny and curtis having A… let’s just call it a heated discussion. At the savoy? Yeah, and I tried to intervene, but, man, I just made everything worse.

I’m your friend, sonny. Jason was my friend. You’re just a knock-off, a poor shadow of his brother.

[ Sighs ] Sonny was acting pretty erratic. In what way? And what was he even doing there? He was determined to, um… buy out the club for a night. I told sonny that I needed time, not some big, romantic gesture. But it’s okay. Curtis shut him down. It’s not going to happen. You know sonny. Once he sets his mind on something, it’s really hard to talk him out of it. You haven’t actually said much about your time in spring ridge. It was prison. It was light years better than pentonville, but it was still prison, and while I was paying my debt to society, it was hard, and there were a lot of lonely days. And harmony helped? She did. Because she had also done time in prison, so she could meet me where I was, as an equal. There’s tremendous relief in that kind of shorthand, because I don’t have to explain anything to her. She got me. She knew where I was coming from, and she knew what I would be going through when I got out. I think the most interesting realization for me was that, like you, harmony was shiloh’s victim, and like you, she was desperate for some enlightenment, and he used it. He weaponized it against both of you. But I give her a lot of credit for recognizing her mistakes. She gave testimony against him, and she didn’t do it in exchange for anything. She got no deal. She went to prison. She took her lumps. She did it because she knew it was the right thing to do. Kind of like you pleading guilty? Yeah. Kind of like that. I know you all thought I was out of my mind for doing that, but, you know, she understood why, and it’s nice to be able to be that honest with someone and have someone get you. You know, I mean, isn’t that the essence of a good friendship, to be honest with somebody? Sounds right to me. So, do you think your aunt’s going to try to kill peter again? Look, I don’t know her plans, and I don’t want to. Good. Because you need to focus on being the perfect parolee. Would you care? If you went back to prison? No. If peter died. The world would be a far better place. But I will say this — if peter meets with an accident of some kind, I don’t want gh involved in any way. Get that guy out of my hospital. Amen. Sorry to interrupt, but congratulations again. Oh, thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you, honey. I wish I could stay longer, but I got to get going. Oh, you got something more important than us, apparently. Yeah? Alright, whatever. I got some details I need to take care of.

[ Chuckles ] Oh. Okay. So, when did you and sonny start sharing secrets? I am not quite sure. And what is the secret? Well, I don’t know much, but evidently, sonny is planning a big surprise for carly. Oh, no. No. What is he doing? She thinks that they’re just getting together to talk. I told him it was a bad idea, but he wouldn’t hear it.

[ Sighs ] Okay. You know what? I got to warn carly. Whoa, whoa! Maybe we should stay out of this. Ha. Okay, uh… I just heard something that I think maybe you should know about, uh… sonny’s planning something really big, isn’t he? Apparently, you already heard it. Yeah. Okay. I’m on it. Hey, sonny, can I talk to you for a minute? Yeah, yeah, of course. Privately? Yeah. You can go to the gatehouse. No one’s there. Okay. What do you think that’s about? Based on my mom’s tone? Nothing good.

You disappeared. Uh, yeah. I’m in charge, and I needed to take a break. You’re not avoiding me? Maxie, I’m not a creeper. No, you’re not a creeper. I’m not. You kissed me. I did. Yeah. And then your mom interrupted, and then we couldn’t talk about it. You think maybe we can talk about it now? Sure. I know how I feel. Do you want to tell me what that kiss meant to you?

[ Knock on door ] Come in.

[ Sighs ] Hey. Oh, good. You have impeccable timing. I was just about to call you.

[ Sighs ] What’s wrong? I need your help. It’s willow. Okay, don’t try to get anything out of me, ’cause I’m not talking. I already know you have something planned. Who ruined the surprise? The surprise was realizing you’re still not listening to me, sonny, and that stops now. Worried about witnesses? Nope. I just wanted a little privacy. You and I have barely had a chance to talk today. Yes, it has been a hectic day, hasn’t it? That was not a criticism. Everybody wanted to wish you well because they love you. I just want you to know that I love you, too. Mother, are we having a moment? Oh. We could have. You ruined it. What is going on? They asked for tracy. Can I help you? Tracy quartermaine, you’re under arrest.

[ Laughs ] For what? Felony fraud. Trafficking counterfeit goods. Mother. I did no such thing. What did I counterfeit? The ice princess.
