THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
[ Dramatic music plays ] Elizabeth: Oh, god. So good to have you back safe and sound. You must be relieved that peter’s dead. Mm. I’m especially relieved that maxie is safe and she is finally reunited with her daughter. Drew, peter held y ou prisonerfor just about two years and kept you away from your own daughter. And killed my brother. Yeah. So yeah, I’m — I’m glad he’s dead. And I feel…I don’t know. I feel kind of free. And now that I do, I’M… thinking about my future. Sorry I missed the staff meeting. How’d it go? It was great. How are the kids? Oh, they’re good. That’s not why I was late. Um… I was late because I went to file my divorce papers. Already? Already. Honey, how do you feel? Like a failure. Did you forget something?
[ Exhales deeply ] You are an absolute lifesaver. I have a huge exam to study for, and all of my notes are on this. I-I figured. What’s going on?
[ Down-tempo music plays ] Um, my mom called. She filed the papers, so the divorce is in motion. She just wanted me to be prepared for questions from donna and avery and help them transition, so… I am so sorry that you r familyis going through this, michael. And I hate bringing this up, but I think now’s the time. Time for what? To have a talk about nina. Thank you so much for indulging my cravings. Well, only because you agreed to share.
[ Chuckles ] You better get your own.
[ Both laugh ]
[ Down-tempo music playing ] I don’t care what carly thinks about me. I don’t care what anyone thinks about me anymore. I just want to move on with my life. With sonny. I care about sonny! I do. But we are not together. Does he know that? That is nina. Hey, nina. Long time no see. Hey! It’s nice to see you. You look great. You look beautiful. Aunt stella! Wow. This is my lucky day, huh? I’d ask you guys to join me, but I’m actually gonna leave. I’ve been dawdling, waiting to see if I could talk to phyllis, but she’s not gonna be here till later. Oh! I’m so sorry we missed her. I like phyllis, too. Yeah. She’s great. She always knows the perfect thing to say, and I really needed that today. Well, then it’s a good thing that we came to charlie’S. So, what’s on your mind, nina? What “strange things” have been happening to elizabeth? Well, there was A… fire at franco’s art studio. The police think it was arson. Really? Really. And then, you know, the night of our first date, uh, elizabeth found her wedding ring in her locker at work, which was a little bizarre, because she had left it at home. And then — there’s more? Yeah, there’s more. She was gonna donate some clothing, and she discovered the dress she wore when she married franco had been completely cut to shreds. It’s suspicious that everything had significance to franco. Yeah, it is. You know, we thought maybe one of the boys was having a problem with, you know, me seeing their mom. Those are…sophisticated pranks for kids. Agreed. Then again, these boys aren’t little kids anymore.
[ Dramatic music plays ]
[ Gasps ]
Cameron. Mom, I am so sorry. I did not mean to startle you. Are you okay? I’m — I’m sorry. I didn’t hear you come in. I just… I was so distracted… by the portrait. Wait. T-that’S… that’s the portrait of you that franco painted. I-I thought it was destroyed in the fire. So did I. But when I walked in, it was just — it was just here. I never thought I would see it again. Hold on. You — you didn’t put it there? No. No. Was it here when you got home? Yeah. But that was like 10 minutes ago. I crashed at carter’s dorm room. Mom, what’s going on? I’m not sure. Aiden spent the night at laura’s last night, a-and jake is on an overnight trip with the school, so I slept at the hospital. As far as I know, nobody’s even been home for the past 24 hours, which means whoever put that there was… in our house. I need to check on the boys and make sure they’re okay and where they’re supposed to be. Mom, what should I do? Call the police. Chase: Okay. Whoever’s doing this had access to elizabeth’s wedding ring, which means they also had access to her house and knew where her locker was at general hospital. Do you remember what day it was, or if her locker showed any signs of being tampered with? Because we can check the footage at general hospital — whoa, whoa, whoa. Slow down. I’m not even sure elizabeth wants you to know about this. Well, then what are we gonna do about it? Okay. You’re my brother, so I told you. But I think we need to wait and see what elizabeth wants to do about it. How much longer until you’re reinstated, anyway? A few months. [ Exhales deeply ] I can’t wait. Any idea what you’re gonna do in the meantime? I haven’t given it much thought. But don’t — don’t worry about me. I’ll — I’ll be fine. Remember how I told you I ran into nina the other night at the hospital? The night that I found out about her and my dad? Yes. She made a point of asking if there was a way for her to see wiley, even if she and carly could never get along. And I’m guessing she skipped past the part where my mom had just found her and my dad in bed together. She played me, michael. She intentionally held back about what she’d done, knowing full well something that monumental would have ramifications for our whole family and, of course, affect her relationship with wiley. Look, you know how I feel about nina, but my dad does not get a pass. He’s just as much to blame. It is a pattern with nina. She — she reaches out, makes a pitch for access to wiley, and carefully omits whatever objectionable things she’s done. I-I don’t want to keep wiley from family members who love him, but I think you were right all along. Nina…is not the type of person I want in wiley’s life. I know exactly what I want, ’cause I’m starving. Can I get you something? No, thank you. I’m good. Auntie, would you please get me a double order of what you’re having?
[ Chuckles ] Coming right up. Wow.
[ Laughs ] Okay. She won’t be gone long. You better talk fast. What is going on with you and does it have to do with sonny? Wow. That was a quick change of subject. Come on, nina. The last time I saw you was at the savoy, and you defused tensions between sonny and my father. Yeah. He wasn’t himself that night. Yeah. I kind of came to that conclusion myself. But your dad — I’ve never seen anyone stand up to sonny like that. Apparently, it’s not his first time dealing with a man of sonny’s caliber. Interesting. How do you feel about that? Nice deflection, nina. I just accepted it. And I accepted the fact that I’m never gonna get the answers that I want from marshall, so I let it go. And it definitely eased tensions between my father and me. But then things changed.
[ Sighs ] Olivia: It’s 5:00 somewhere.
[ Chuckles ] I know I made the right decision. It’s just hitting me really hard. Of course it is — ’cause you’re not a robot. Want to talk about it? No. I-I think I should just work. No. No, no, no, no. No, honey. Honey, forget work. Just lay it on me, okay? What — what is the strongest emotion you’re feeling right now? Disappointment. I mean, obviously in sonny, but in myself because I just want to be done with it. Yeah. I want so badly not to care. And I keep asking myself over and over again, “what happened?” I mean, how could my marriage be over? How could I mean so little to sonny in the end? I… but then I know I have to stop myself because whatever sonny does or however sonny feels, it’s not my problem anymore. I am considering a leadership position at aurora, taking a more active role. And I know that you hired michael to head up digital. He’s doing a great job, right? Those numbers are solid. So I don’t want to step on what he’s doing, but…I do have ideas of where the company should go. You don’t need my approval. You realize that you still own the company? And now that jax has divested due to conflict of interest, you can implement anything you want.
[ Cellphone beeps ] I say go for it. All right. You know what? Um… great. I have — I have another appointment. I have to run. Okay. And you have my full support. Hey. So, are we doing this? Oh. Doing this? What are we doing? Um… aw. Well, I took the liberty of, uh, planning a little… something to help you, uh, process your emotions. Okay.
[ Laughter ]
[ Up-tempo rock music plays ] Are we really doing this? Damn straight. Let’s throw some axes, ladies.
[ Laughs ]
[ Axes thudding ]
Did something happen to sourthings between you and your dad? I thought you were making progress with marshall. We were. Where’s the food? It’s coming. You were saying? Well, you know, um, portia and i are moving in together, and so the equation has changed. Well, that’s great news! I’m glad things are working out for you. Thanks. They are, you know, but, um, with my situation changing, I just need to know more about my father’s past. I thought you had made your peace with that. You know, I was keeping an open mind. I mean, marshall, of his own admission, said that he got mixed up with some dangerous people. So now that portia is gonna be living with me, I need to know that I am not putting her life at risk. So if I’m gonna let marshall in my life, I need to know more about his. Give him time. It’s not dependent on marshall anymore. Drew is helping me find out what marshall’s been hiding.
[ Cellphone chimes ] I-I’m so sorry. Oh, you know what? I wish I could stay, but I got to go, okay? It’s so nice to see you. Oh, you too, sweetheart. I’ll see you soon. And you? Yes. Nina. I love you. Okay. Love you, too, nina. Be safe. Likewise. Bye, darling. Bye. Curtis, are you out of your damn mind? Absolutely not. I just want to protect the people I love. How? What exactly are you planning? I’m glad you gave me a call. I had to admit you had me curious at this proposition.
[ Chuckles ] Here. Well, now that I’m back in town permanently, I, uh… I’m getting involved my media company again and… well, I’m — I’m not exactly sure how much you know about my past. Curtis told me that you had been presumed dead for two years but you had really been captured by this august guy you just took down. Sad but true. Yes. Yeah. I’ve been doing some reading about you online. I know you’re a member of the quartermaine family and also about your twin brother who died. You did your homework. Oh, yes. Oh, yes. I, uh, always like to know about the people I’m potentially doing business with. I hope — I hope that doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable. No, no. Not at all. I feel exactly the same way. You know, I, um — I wouldn’t pretend to know the first thing about life or love. I just want my little brother to find the happiness he deserves. If there’s anything you need, I’m here for you. I know. Thanks. Yeah.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Excuse me. It’s, uh — it’s elizabeth. Yeah. Hey. Uh — uh, I’m sorry. I just — I came over to chase’s, and I’m on my way over right now. Finn, someone broke into my house. Are you and the boys okay? Yes. Nobody was home. Good. That’s good. Uh, was anything taken? I-I don’t know. I haven’t even had a chance to look. Do you remember I told you about that painting franco did of me? Yeah. Yeah. You were sorry ’cause you didn’t bring it home and it got — it got destroyed in the — the fire at his studio. Except it didn’T. Somehow, that painting survived. And whoever broke in placed it front and center in my house. Cameron: Hey, mom. They’re here. I have to go. The police are here. Okay. I’m on my way. I’m on my way. What happened? Someone broke into elizabeth’s house. Hang on. I’m coming with you. No. Uh, you showing up at a crime scene while you’re on — on suspension may not be a good look. Damn it. Well, you — you got to call me and you keep me posted on everything. Absolutely. Be good. I am all for keeping nina away from wiley, especially now. But I don’t know.Something tells me that we — we should take our time, you know, look at the situation from all angles so we know that emotion isn’t driving our decision. The bottom line is we both want what’s best for wiley. Well, I’m glad I talked to you about this. Look, I’m — I’m really angry with nina right now for a variety of reasons, but we don’t know what will happen in the future, right? Carly and sonny could reconcile.
[ Scoffs ] I mean, I love your optimism, but I wouldn’t hold your breath. Hey, I thought chase would never forgive me after he found out about us, but we found a way past the pain and…betrayal, and he found a way to forgive me — at least until I kind of blew everything up again. I think you mean “we.”
[ Sighs ] We — we judged brook lynn and chase for sleeping together when the whole time, they were actually trying to protect maxie’s baby. Okay. We definitely owe them an apology. I especially owe one to brook lynn. Hey, actually, you know what? Why — why don’t we, uh — why don’t we stop by there tonight? Can you pull yourself away from… I can’T. I have a big exam tomorrow. But if you want to go without me, I’ll make sure to touch base with them afterwards. Yeah, that works. Study hard. I’ll see you at the house, okay? Okay. I’ll try not to be too late. Okay.
[ Sighs ]
[ Down-tempo music plays ]
Hey.You all right? Yeah, I’m okay. I’m just a little freaked out. Yeah. Yeah. Dante: Hey, finn. Hey. Dante. So, there’s no evidence of forced break-in anywhere. Could this person have stolen a key? I used my key to get in. Me too. What about your brothers? Well, they both have their own house keys, yes, but aiden’s at school, and jake, he’s at the library doing a project. There’s a hidden key out front, but only the boys and i know about it. Of course, franco knew. Well, I guess whoever broke in could’ve used that one. This painting — you’re sure that it was at franco’s studio at the time of the fire? Yes. I hadn’t moved it. Well, then it sure seems like on the surface that whoever this arsonist is is the same person who broke into your house. Oh, my god.
[ Down-tempo music plays ] I think I know who did this. I want to expand into the jazz arena. With aurora’s reach, I-I really believe that we can help talented artists connect with their audiences. But I got to confess — I… I mean, I’m not even a novice. I know — I know little to nothing about jazz at all. So I need expert advice. I need…a consultant or a concierge, if you will — somebody who really has a feeling for the music and the history and — and where it’s evolving. Sounds like I’m your man. I need your experience is what I need. Exactly. Good. Let’s talk about you and your background. Have you always strictly been a gig musician? It’s how I made the majority of my money. But, you know, that life is feast or famine, so from time to time, I had to take a variety of jobs in order to pay the bills. What about now? Oh, man. I haven’t had a steady gig since being in port charles. I’m starting over. I’m trying to re-establish myself. Well, I know the feeling. I suppose you do. Oh, man.
[ Laughing ] Come on. I know what this is. Curtis put you up to this, didn’t he? Didn’t he? Drew is just helping me get answers to the questions that marshall refuses to answer. Oh, in other words, you’re sneaking around. No good has ever come from that. Auntie, I was a former P.I. Sometimes sneaking around is the only way to get to the truth. Now, if it was up to me, I could let it go. But I have portia and trina to consider. Marshall left his family for decades. That speaks volumes for — for how dangerous the folks that he’s running from are. Portia knows everything about your father that you know, and she’s still in. Give her credit for making her own choices. Okay. But what about trina? I don’t want to gamble with her safety. I-I-I pulled her out of danger one time, and I don’t want to put her back in it again. I need complete answers. I understand that, curtis. I’m just worried you’re going about it in the wrong way. Instead of you and drew sneaking around into marshall’s past like spies, why don’t you just do like I’ve suggested and talk to him? Auntie, I have tried repeatedly. It’s — with marshall, it’s always a dead end. Now, he’s made it abundantly clear that he’s only gonna tell me so much. Now, I know you have your opinions, aunt stella, but could you please trust that I know what I’m doing? You remember when I interfered with you and portia’s relationship? How could I forget? I stuck my nose in where it didn’t belong, and trina was hurt as a result. You keep poking around behind marshall’s back, and someone could get hurt. And I’m afraid that someone could be you.
[ Knock on door ] Michael. Uh, brook lynn’s not here. Um, can I come in? Sure. Uh… well, I was kind of hoping to talk to the both of you. Do you — will she be back soon? Brook lynn’s in bensonhurst, visiting her mother. It’s been rough on her, giving bailey back to maxie. She needed to decompress. That’s got to hurt like hell. Look, I’m, uh — I’m packing up my things, and you and I are far from friends right now, so whatever it is you want to talk about, can it wait? I’m afraid not.
[ Sighs ] Oh, this is ridiculous! No! Come on! This is therapeutic. Instead of avoiding your emotions, you can release them… by throwing an axe at some wood.
[ Sighs ] I even brought… a picture for inspiration!
[ Laughs ] You can put that away. I’ll use my imagination.
got all the money I had yeah!
Took my house, too whoo! Yeah!
Stole my favorite car
even took my shoes
my daddy always said
[ Laughter ]
Ain’t nothin’ left
[ Laughter ] Whoo! Ready? And…go.
No, no, no, no, no whoo! Whoo!Whoo!
[ Laughter ]
No, no, no, no, no I’m here visiting my photo editor. She got her appendix out. Well, enjoy the visit. If you’ll excuse me, I have a big exam to study for. Uh, willow, I-I was wondering — could you spare a few minutes? I have quite a lot of notes to go over. Um, listen.
[ Clears throat ] It won’t take long, I promise. I was just — I was hoping that after our conversation the other day that you were more open to having me spend some time with wiley — maybe this weekend. Yeah. I’m sorry. I-I can’t talk about this right now. Because I’m really missing my — my grandson. I know you have to discuss it with michael, but I was wondering if you could give me any indication how he’s feeling. I am astounded that you would ask me about wiley, given the situation with michael’s parents. I’m sorry that carly and sonny weren’t able to work things out. But I don’t see why that has any bearing on my relationship with wiley. Carly caught you in bed with sonny. You went after a married man like a heat-seeking missile, and you don’t see why michael and i would have a problem with that? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that you found out. Listen, willow. I never intended for that to happen.
[ Sighs ] Do — do you keep a running tally of how many times you use that phrase? I’m just curious. How many lives have been damaged or ruined by things you never intended? How the hell can you ask me to advocate for you when I don’t believe a word you say?
This is a job interview, marshall. Yeah, right. And you’re only doing it because curtis asked you to help me out. Or do you really expect me to believe you’d hire a musician you don’t even know in order to be your “jazz concierge”? I’m nobody’s charity case, my man — least of all my son’S. This interview is over. Marshall, just… hear me out. I…came to apologize. For what? Look, I-I had no right coming down so hard on you about brook lynn and bailey. And… so I’m — I’m sorry. Apology accepted.
[ Down-tempo music plays ] No. That was way too easy. Look, I’m in the middle of packing up my entire life right now, so I don’t really have it in me to lay into you right now, even though you most definitely deserve it. Hey, look — look, man.
[ Sighs ] You loved bailey, too, and I can only imagine what you must be going through right now, having to let her go. So wouldn’t you feel a little bit better just — just unloading? I mean, you took heat from a lot of people, m-m-myself included. You got suspended from the pcpd while you were just trying to protect that little girl. Look, you were doing a good thing, and I had no right to judge. So I just wanted — you had zero right. You acted like me sleeping with brook lynn — which did not happen, by the way — was on par with what you and willow did to me. Michael, you slept with my wife! And then you had the nerve to lay into me because I hurt her feelings? Cut the crap. The real reason you are here is to absolve your own guilt. It is selfish… and it’s self-righteous. You feel better? Actually, yeah. Yeah, I do. You have a suspect? Betsy frank. Franco’s mother? Mm-hmm. Did you tell him about the other incidents? Yes. So what — what evidence do you have that points to betsy? Well, she sent me a valentine’s card. It was, um, very gothic, almost, uh, morbid. And so I called her today, and it turns out she’s in town, visiting franco’s grave. It’s a little too convenient. Don’t you think? She claims she just got here, but she could have been here for months. Right. Well, I’d like to see that card. But w-what were you and betsy talking about? She told me that she was here visiting franco’s grave and that she likes to pretend like he’s still alive. And she also knows that I’m dating finn because she follows me on social media, which makes me wonder if that just pushed her over the edge. Listen, I don’t know this woman at all, but for her to go to these lengths seems kind of extreme. Yeah. Betsy’s not all there on a good day. And now she’s grieving. People can be pushed to do desperate things while they’re grieving. Nina: Where is this even coming from? I thought we had a cordial conversation the other day. So did I. But I’ve realized it’s just part of your pattern, nina. Every time I think we’ve made headway, I find out that you’ve held back information or just plain lied by omission. Well, what happened between me and sonny wasn’t anyone else’s business. Then why go out of the way to drop hints that things between you and carly were irreconcilable?
[ Down-tempo music plays ] This isn’t the first time you’ve thrown me under the bus, but it’s the last. If you’re going to create discord between michael’s parents and then turn around and make nice to me while withholding that information, I’m going to feel used, played. And trust me, I will resent it. I am not trying to play you at all. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. I am so appreciative that you’ve been trying to be my ally. I am not your ally, nina. I am wiley’s mother. And until he’s old enough, it is my job to decide what is best for him, and that includes vetting the people he spends time with. Wiley — he’s my family. He’s my grandson. He’s the only thing that I have left of my daughter. He’s my blood. Blood doesn’t entitle you to have a relationship with someone. Not if you’re going to hurt them.
You should just trustthat marshall knows what’s safe and what’s not safe. He’s the one that’s lived his life. He’s in a much better position to judge than you are. I want to know and trust my father, but I can’t do that when he’s so closed off. Well, he needs to trust you, too, curtis. Give the relationship time to grow. Put in the work. Maybe then marshall will disclose the things that you want to know. But mark my words, baby. If you sneak around in his private business, there will be no chance of that happening. Curtis did ask me to interview you for this job. And I was happy to oblige because I need a jazz musician, and he thought you’d be a really good fit. I agreed, and so… I mean, I don’t know. Is it so terrible your son’s just trying to help you out?
[ Sighs ] You know, I… I suppose not. Look, if my friendship with curtis complicates things at all, feel free to walk away. For sure — no harm, no foul whatsoever. I just got to look elsewhere, I guess. I don’t want to be hasty. The job does sound interesting. Okay, good. Look. If we are gonna work together, I do have to tell you our company’s hr policies. Aurora has got contracts with the government, and due to their sensitive nature, I have liaison with intelligence agencies to do in-depth background checks just as a precaution. Wow. Is all that really necessary? Yeah, I’m afraid so. It’s — it’s a condition of employment, standard company policy — just to make sure there’s no security issues or clearance issues, anything like that. It’s pretty simple. Hr sends you some forms. You just put in past employers, your past addresses, your — I don’t know — aliases in case you performed under a stage name. Yeah. Yeah. I see. You know what?
[ Clears throat ] This job doesn’t sound like I’m gonna have enough time for my own music. I’m gonna have torespectfully decline. I hope there are no hard feelings. No, no. You know, I hope to — hope to see you at my gig. Absolutely. I look forward to it. Thank you for your time. Yeah. Sure thing. What you said about me feeling guilty… you’re right. Willow and I, we — we felt really guilty when we realized our feelings for each other, and we hated that it would hurt you. So… we put off telling you for what we thought were the right reasons. But it was — it was still dishonest. And then when you said that you slept with brook lynn, it just — I don’t know — it seemed to balance the scales and — and let me off the hook a little, and so… …I’m sorry. Willow married me because she thought I was dying. And then when I found out I couldn’t walk, she stayed with me to give me hope, even though she was in love with you. You know, I will always wish you guys didn’t lie to me. But I completely understand why you did it. Why is it when we try to do the right thing, we always end up lying? It’s definitely counterintuitive. Yeah. Well, you know what? When it comes to doing the right thing, you definitely win. I mean, this is the second child you saved, right? Yeah, but you and willow… kind of saved my life. So I guess we’re even. Oh. Yeah. Thanks. But not even close. Okay. Uh, then why don’t you help me close that gap by…
[Straining] Loading this into my car? Oh, great. Oh! Okay.
[ Grunts ] Deal. You mind if I hang on to this? No, not at all. Did betsy know about the spare key? No. I mean, not to my knowledge. I guess franco could have told her, but I can’t imagine why. What about boys? You think maybe she would’ve checked in with one of them? Maybe they could have told her. I haven’t spoken to her. And, I mean, how weird would that be if she contacted either jake or aiden? Right, a-and jake and aiden, they didn’t mention anything when you checked in with them, right? I didn’t tell them about the break-in. I just wanted to make sure they were okay. Right. I never considered that betsy could be using my sons. Well, hey, I-in case one of the kids is involved, I’ll keep a low profile on this, all right? At least take that worry off your mind. You were looking pretty good out there, girl. Who knew it would be so much fun and feel incredible to throw an axe? I mean, who came up with this business model? I think a lumberjack.
[ Laughter ] Well, if only we could throw axes at all of our problems. Although, I guess in sonny and nina’s case, that might not be a very good thing. Yeah. Do you guys really think it’s a good idea to drink beer and throw axes at the same time? I do. Okay, then.
[ Laughs ] Speaking of sonny, I just signed away all my claims to community property. Do you really think that’s a good idea? I just wanted it to be over, and I just want to move forward. And you think you can?
[ Down-tempo music plays ] Not right now. I can’t move past all the damage nina did, no matter how hard I try. And I don’t think I’ll be able to move past it until nina pays. Yeah. I don’t blame you. But karma is gonna take care of this. Nina will get what’s coming to her. Karma takes too long. Honey…it’s not healthy to focus on revenge. You know what? I think olivia is right. You have got a new life ahead of you. Why don’t you just focus on that? Nina: How can you say that to me? I would never hurt wiley. Nina, I don’t doubt your love for wiley. I just never know what I’m going to get with you. Well, know this. I think about him all the time, and I miss him every single day. I realize that I have made mistakes. It might be hard to believe this, but I am learning from my mistakes, willow, and I promise I will be more forthcoming in the future. I want to keep the door open for wiley to have a relationship with you. But michael is another story, and I’m starting to understand where he’s coming from. Do not keep me from my grandchild.
Maybe what drew and i had planned is the wrong move. Yes. Just be patient a little while longer, and I believe you’ll learn everything you need to know. And then you can make better decisions to keep all of us safe. And that’s all that matters.
[ Cellphone ringing ] Excuse me. Drew. Hey, drew. I was just about to call you. Yeah. I got news about your dad. Uh, yeah. Never mind that interview. Um, too late. We just finished. How’d it go? Marshall turned me down. He wouldn’t agree to a background check. I’ll, uh, look into betsy’s whereabouts the last two months or so. I just finished talking with the officer. I showed him the hiding place where the key was. Great. Thanks again. Uh, maybe don’t touch that painting for a little longer. All right. See you. Thanks.
[ Door opens, closes ] How you holding up? The thought that betsy may have been here for months, using her knowledge of — of me and franco to play these games, it’s just creepy. I mean, has she been breaking into my house this entire time, following me to work, getting my key, bringing it back? I’ve been working too much. She could have been here while my boys were asleep. She could have hurt them and i wasn’t here to protect them — hey, mom. I can protect us just fine, okay? In fact, you know what? I’m gonna get someone to cover my shift at kelly’s tonight. I don’t want you to be here alone. No. I don’t want you upending your life over this. Why don’t I bunk here for a couple days? Just — just till dante sorts all this out, all right? You know… chase has been bugging me about spending some time with violet. And she’d like it — more candy, stay up late. And I think chase could really use her company right now. It’s not an imposition? Not at all. Under the circumstances, I’d feel better if I stayed. Well, then it’s settled. I’ll get ready for work. Thank you. I don’t want him taking this on. Do you think I’m overreacting? No. No. You’re doing the right thing. And I’ll stay here until you feel safe again. I’m gonna go with my initial instinct — I deserve a fresh start. Yes! Cheers to that! You do. Hear, hear! Whoo! Hear, hear!

I am not saying that you will never see wiley again. But we need to let things settle. What exactly does that mean? I don’t think there’s a path to you seeing wiley on saturday. Well, let me remind you, willow — as wiley’s biological grandmother, I have rights in this state. I haven’t pushed it out of a gesture of goodwill. But if this is the path that we will be taking now… that you and michael get to decide to block access to my grandson, then you leave me no choice. I will fight for my rights.
