Ashland: Okay, I met with victor and adam, and it’s done. I see no reason to stay in this town one minute longer. You ready to go?

Victoria: Did you really think that I would run away with you, after everything you put me through? Did you really believe that this wasn’t the absolute end for us?

Ashland: I’m not sure what you’re saying right now.

Victoria: I told you whatever you wanted to hear so that you would sign everything away. I wanted out of this marriage and I want you out of this company.

Ashland: No, just — just hold on for one second. Wh–

Victoria: You pride yourself on being one step ahead of everyone else. Are you telling me you didn’t see this coming?

Ashland: Okay, okay, I will admit that I didn’t know what to think in the last few days, but when you agreed to run away with me to tuscany to — to — to get out of this town and start fresh, I thought that was our chance, victoria. I was overjoyed. I didn’t question it. I didn’t want to question it because I actually thought — and I still think — that we can get out of here and we could make this work.

Victoria: [ Groans ] Everything I said to you the past couple of days has been a lie. Not some grand fabrication that “I have cancer and I’m dying,” but a lie nonetheless. And now you know you’ve been deceived. So all of those feelings that you might be having right now of betrayal and humiliation, I know them — I know them well. It’s your turn now.

Sharon: Mr. Anderson, I told you that my husband wouldn’t appreciate — [ Gasps ] Oh, oh, it’s you.

Rey: I’m so sorry to disappoint.

Sharon: I’m not disappointed to see you ever.

Rey: Mwah.

Sharon: Especially in that jacket.

Rey: Mm. You like it?

Sharon: Very sharp. Did you get it for your trip to chicago?

Rey: No, no, not exactly, but I thought chicago would be a good place to debut it. Have you seen connor and chelsea?

Sharon: Not yet.

Rey: Thanks again for being okay with me going.

Sharon: No thanks necessary.

Rey: I know, I know, but it’s a little weird I’m taking another woman and her son to a hockey game.

Sharon: There’s nothing strange about it.

Rey: [ Chuckles ] I’m spending the night in chicago. A lot of wives would disapprove. Thank you for being so understanding.

Sharon: The most important thing is that connor will have a great time. And who are we kidding? I think that you’re more excited than he is.

Rey: Oh, it’s my first live hockey game, huh?

Sharon: Mm-hmm.

Rey: There they are!

Connor: Hey, rey.

Rey: What’s up, buddy? Ready for the big game?

Connor: Yeah, it’s going to be so fun. I get to watch the blackhawks in person, but the best part is i get to go with you, rey. No offense, mom.

Chelsea: Oh, listen, none taken. I’m just along for the ride. I feel like I’m a chaperone for these two because rey actually knows the sport and how to play the game.

Rey: Don’t undersell yourself, chelsea. It’s gonna be a great night for all of us, huh?

Victor: Thank you, son. Well, your deal worked. Ashland locke hopefully will be out of our lives very soon.

Adam: Mm. Well, it was my idea, but when ashland asked if you were on board, you backed me up. And that’s what made it successful.

Victor: We make a good team.

Adam: I’m sure victoria’s gonna be irritated that the plan that worked wasn’t hers. She never got the satisfaction, even temporarily, of throwing me under the bus. She would have loved to see me squirm.

Victor: There’s no place for sibling rivalry right now, okay? Considering what your sister’s gone through, just be happy to be rid of that fraud, okay? You should have feelings of compassion now for your sister, not competition. Alright?

Victoria: Do you know how insulting it is that you thought I would believe you were set up? I mean, how stupid did you think I would have to be to think that someone would go to all the trouble of making it look like you had faked your illness for months? Do you take me for an idiot, ashland?

Ashland: No, no, I do not. But, victoria, what was i supposed to do? With all the evidence that was being built up against me, was i supposed to come to you and say, “hey, that this terrible thing, I lied, I made a mistake”? Would you have forgiven me for that? Could you have forgiven me?

[ Sighs ] No, I don’t think so. And, no, I didn’t actually believe that you were gonna buy into the story that I had been set up. I — not in your head. But in your heart — in your heart, I thought maybe you wanted to believe it was the truth. That’s what I was hoping for.

Victoria: And that’s why you kept lying?

Ashland: I was stalling. I was trying to buy time because I honestly believed that our love would win out in the end, that — that somehow we could — we could go off and have a future together.

Victoria: Future? After what you did to me, we could never, ever have a future.

Ashland: I still think that we —

Victoria: No, stop it. There’s no point in you continuing to lie to me. You didn’t get control of newman/locke, okay? So maybe you just can take some comfort in what you do have — you have money and you have freedom.

Ashland: I don’t give a damn about the money. And I don’t care about the freedom if it means going off without you. All I want is you. Sweet pillows of softness!

Victor: Son… I did give you credit for coming up with the idea that finally got rid of ashland locke. But it’s not enough for you, is it?

Adam: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: Huh? You should be happy we’ll get rid of that son of a bitch. He’s out of our company, out of victoria’s life.

Adam: I agree. I agree. I retract my comment.

Victor: Alright.

Adam: I will try to focus on staying positive.

Victor: Good.

Adam: As hard as this is for victoria, I know that she’s going to move past it, no matter how long it takes. I’ll give her credit for being tough.

Victor: And I do, trust me.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Victor: She’s endured a lot.

Adam: Yeah, but I also recognize that this is gonna take a while to move past. She’s gonna need time to recover. And even though she is tough, you know, we need to do what’s best for her moving forward.

Victor: Exactly.

Adam: You know the brilliant part of my plan is we get to keep everything that locke brought into the merger. We now have complete control over his empire, along with newman enterprises. I mean, we almost doubled our value for a mere $500 million. That’s a bargain.

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Interesting how things work out sometimes, isn’t it?

Victoria: All you want is me.

[ Scoffs ] Oh, wow, you — you are relentless. And you do not lack commitment, I’ll give you that. Commitment to the scam, not to me, obviously. But you have — you’ve played the dutiful, devoted husband all the way to the bitter end.

Ashland: I’m not playing at anything. It’s what I believe. You have to know that.

Victoria: I don’T. Why don’t you just admit it — admit what you did?

Ashland: I have.

Victoria: No. No, you haven’T. The whole thing. I want to know how you used me. I-I want to know how you could sink to such a disgusting low, lying about a disease that — that ruins so many people’s lives.

Ashland: You want the whole story, you want the truth?

Victoria: Yeah, I do. I do.

[ Laughs ] I think I deserve that.

Ashland: Fine. Here it is. I lied about having cancer.

Victoria: Finally. Finally some honesty. There’s a start.

Ashland: But that’s not the whole truth, victoria. The whole truth is not what you think it is. I didn’t come here with my sights set on newman enterprises. But then this thing happened. I found out my wife was cheating on me and that my son harrison was not my biological son, and in that moment, everything changed for me.

Victoria: You would use your child as an excuse?

Victoria: I was devastated. I was furious. The — the infamous locke ness monster kicked in the gut. But I saw an opportunity.

[ Chuckles ] Something bigger than I’d ever done before. And I channeled all of that righteous anger into going after your family’s company.

Victoria: Well, you didn’t waste any time, did you? You asked me to new york to have dinner with you after you learned about harrison.

Ashland: That’s right.

Victoria: And while we were there, you told me about your cancer diagnosis.

Ashland: I had momentum. I was moving forward.

[ Chuckles ] And it was so, so easy to sell the story that the scans after my heart attack showed signs of cancer.

Victoria: You know…I was surprised that you wanted me around when you were dealing with that news. I mean, we were — we were basically strangers, and now i know why. I know why. Because you knew that it would create an instant bond and that we would have trust and intimacy, and, of course, you would induce compassion out of me. Yeah, it was all very deliberate.

Ashland: That’s right.

Victoria: You know it’s one thing for you to do something like this to me, but how could you let that sweet, little, innocent boy think that you were dying? What defense do you have of that behavior?

Ashland: None. But I did what I could to keep harrison out of it.

Victoria: And that’s why you didn’t fight kyle in taking him to italy.

Ashland: That’s right.

Victoria: Because you could continue your scam and you could get all of your business arrangements in place, and then you would make the announcement that you had miraculously recovered. And you wouldn’t have to look that little boy in the eye and lie to him the way you did to me.

Ashland: I don’t deny any of it. I took advantage of you, of your immense heart. I worked an angle to win your love and your trust.

Victoria: You convinced me and everybody else that you were dying. Death — that was your angle?

Ashland: It was.

Victoria: All of it was to get your hands on my family’s company. And the merger — I mean, the merger was like your ultimate power grab. It was also the most selfish and disgusting move of your entire career.

Ashland: All of that is true. In fact, there was a time that i was even proud of myself. Can you believe that? But then this other thing happened. Something extraordinary. Something shocking. I, honest to god, fell in love with you. I’m steve, I lost 138 pounds in nine months on golo

Chelsea: Now, you behave. Thank you so much, sharon.

Sharon: Hope this will be enough.

Chelsea: I don’t mean just for the snacks. I mean for lending us rey for the evening. It really means a lot to connor.

Sharon: Yeah, I know it does. And I think staying in chicago tonight after the game makes sense.

Chelsea: Yeah, I mean, it’s just so late for connor, you know? The game doesn’t end till after his bedtime.

Sharon: Yeah. And it can get pretty foggy this time of year. It might not be that safe driving home so late. I just want you to bring rey home safe and sound.

Chelsea: We will do that.

Sharon: Um…you know what? Besides, I-I’m gonna have the house to myself tonight, and i can sit on the couch and watch my shows — the ones that rey always pretends to like, for my sake.

Chelsea: Yeah, sounds like a perfect evening.

Rey: So what are you most excited about seeing live?

Connor: A slap shot, ’cause I’m working on mine. It’s a really complicated move.

[ Grunts ]

Rey: Oh, give me some. Yes, sir.

Sharon: So any special requests for the road?

Chelsea: No. Plus, it looks like you put one of everything in here, so thank you. It’s very generous.

Sharon: It’s my pleasure.

Chelsea: Is it?

Sharon: What do you mean?

Chelsea: I just mean you’re going above and beyond to help prepare us for this trip to chicago.

Sharon: Is that a problem?

Chelsea: I don’t know. I get the sense that you’re not happy about this trip. But you’re working hard to come off like you are okay with it, so I just want to know, truly, are you okay with everything that’s happening tonight?

Nick: I keep calling victoria. There’s no answer.

Nikki: Well, I left her at the office a little while ago while ashland was talking to victor and adam. Did everything go as planned?

Victor: Ashland locke accepted the offer to leave. And he signed away control of both companies.

And he annulled his marriage to our daughter.

Nikki: Oh, thank god.

Nick: Wow.

Nikki: Well, I guess adam’s plan worked.

Nick: Good job, adam.

Nikki: I admit, I was a little skeptical, but you really came through.

Adam: Thank you. It’s all about helping the family.

Nick: Does victoria know yet?

Victor: Yeah, I told her as soon as locke left the office.

Nick: How did she react?

Victor: She didn’T. I have a feeling that she’s in the office right now, and I feel that ashland locke is with her.

Nick: Wonder how that conversation is going.

Victor: Yeah.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] I hope it’s nothing more than “goodbye and good riddance.” Victoria did tell me that she intended to walk away from him, but in order to get her to agree to this deal, she had to make him think that they would still be together in spite of the annulment.

Nick: And now he knows that is not the case.

Nikki: I hope so. I have no idea how he’s gonna react or the toll that it will take on victoria. He is just such a terrible person. But her feelings for him were real. She’s still reconciling the relationship she thought they had with the reality.

Nick: Vick’s a very strong, very proud woman. I know she can handle herself. It’s ashland I’m worried about.

Victoria: You “honest to god” fell in love with me. You know, I would be shocked if you even understood what any of those words even mean.

Ashland: I do. And I know they’re true.

Victoria: Those are empty words coming from a man who doesn’t have faith in anyone or anything but himself.

Ashland: I believe that we can get past this, victoria. I still believe that. I have never loved anyone as profoundly as I love you. Without you, if I walk out that door, I will be a lost man, without direction. No idea where to go. For the first time in my life, i don’t know what to do next.

Rey: What do you think — am I too old to learn how to play hockey?

Connor: Of course not.

Rey: Cool, so maybe after our trip, you can take me down to the rink, show me some things?

Connor: That would be cool.

Sharon: Of course I’m okay with rey going to chicago with you and connor. Why wouldn’t I be? And he told me how it happened. You had a business trip out of town, so you asked rey to take connor to the game, and then your trip got postponed, but you managed to get another ticket and you still wanted rey to come.

Chelsea: Well, connor had his heart set on it.

Sharon: I think it’ll be good for rey. He really likes how connor looks up to him.

Chelsea: I didn’t think that you had an issue with rey taking connor to the game. I thought maybe you would have an issue with rey spending time with me, given our history.

Sharon: Do you mean the history between you and me or history between you and rey, given that you once poisoned him?

Chelsea: All of it. I just want you to be comfortable, sharon.

Sharon: Well, I think I’ve made it very clear that my position is this is all behind us, in the past. And I know that you’re doing a lot better — much better than you have been doing in a very long time.

Chelsea: I am. I am, and I would never do anything to undermine that. You and rey have been so kind to me since I came back to town. You’ve offered me friendship again, which is shocking ’cause I really don’t deserve it. I won’t forget it.

Sharon: I’m sure you won’T.

Chelsea: That’s why I just want to live my best life from here on out. It’s also why I’m being up front with you. I hope you’ll be the same with me.

Victor: Why would you say you’re worried about locke?

Nick: We have to watch ashland until we are certain he’s gone for good.

Victor: Well, I told them to watch him all the time. Okay? I asked them to stop watching victoria and follow ashland locke. If that man makes one wrong step, I’m gonna get him.

Victoria: I have no sympathy for you. I have — I have none left to give. You had every opportunity to come to me before tonight, but all I got from you was lie upon lie. And the only reason you came clean is because you were backed into a corner. You got caught. That’s not love.

Ashland: I know it looks that way from your point of view, victoria, but —

Victoria: And then you told me that there was nothing left to hide, but there was — there always was more. And what is so demoralizing is that I knew it. I saw who you were because you showed me who you were over and over again. Taking your — your dead best friend’s identity so that you could start a new life, and then forging a letter so that you could get your hands on your mentor’s fortune. And I believed all of your excuses. I believed them, and I looked past them. I looked past all of your former sins because I wanted to believe that you had changed.

Ashland: I have —

Victoria: I wanted to believe that that was because of me.

Ashland: I have changed. I gave up my life’s work — locke communications group — i did that to show you I would do anything for you.

Victoria: Why would I believe anything that comes out of your mouth? Why? It’s over! And when you walk out of those doors, I don’t care what happens to you.

Ashland: I don’t believe you.

Who’s on it with jardiance?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sharon: I think transparency is a great idea. Honestly, I’m really glad that we get along these days. It’s a relief. Don’t you think?

Chelsea: It is.

Sharon: Alright, so let’s not go looking for problems where there are none.

Chelsea: I’m really glad you feel that way, because you have nothing to worry about.

Connor: Mom, we should go soon.

Chelsea: I think you’re right. We should.

Rey: I hope I get to catch a puck.

Chelsea: I just hope you don’t catch it with your teeth.

Rey: Oh, well, that would make for a fun night, huh?

[ Laughter ]

Ashland: I deserve your scorn, your outrage, your hatred. All of that is justified, but i think deep down inside you are as conflicted as I am. There is still something between us, victoria. Let’s get out of here. Leave your family, leave this town, and start over.

Victoria: I am starting over. But not with you.

Ashland: Okay. The only thing left to say is… I’m sorry.

Nick: Any word from the security detail?

Victor: It seems that locke is leaving the building alone. Hopefully our daughter’s done with him once and for all.

Victoria: [ Screams ]

[ Grunts ]

[ Panting ] Are you one of the millions of americans

Nikki: Oh, my god.

[ Gasps ]

Nick: What happened here?

Nikki: I thought you said ashland left peacefully.

Victor: They assured me he did.

Nikki: [ Sighs ]

Victor: I bet you…victoria did this.

Adam: I can’t say I blame her for needing to blow off some steam, but seems like the work of someone who’s in a lot of pain.

Nick: I’m gonna call security. Yeah, this is nick newman. When’s the last time anyone saw my sister in the building? Was she alone? Alright, thanks. Security saw victoria leaving the parking garage five minutes ago. No sign of ashland.

Nikki: I’m calling her.

Victor: Please, sweetheart, just give her some time alone, okay? Why don’t we — I don’t know, let’s just get out of here.

Nick: Yeah, why don’t we grab something to eat?

Adam: Uh, I appreciate the invitation, but actually I have some things that I need to take care of, so let me know if there’s anything else that I can help with.

Victor: Okay, we’ll do that.

Nikki: What could have made her do this?

Victor: [ Sighs ]

Nick: Alright, let’s, uh — let’s go with society, okay? I got to make a quick stop, but I’ll meet you there. Mom? Dad?

Victor: I’m sorry, son, I’m checking with security right now. We’ll be seeing you at the restaurant, okay?

Nick: Mom, I know you’re worried, alright? But I think dad’s right — vick just needs some space, alright? Let’s give her some time alone and respect her choice.

Nikki: I just want to help her get through this as best i can.

Victor: [ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] This is so upsetting. We all will, my darling, when the time is right.

Adam: Sally. I have great news. My plan worked. That’s right. Locke is on his way out of town right now, all thanks to me. Yeah, my father is very happy. He’s very appreciative. No, I don’t know, I didn’t want to push the “can I keep the job” angle. It just didn’t seem like the appropriate time. But, you know, when the dust settles, I will broach the subject with him. I agree. I think ashland’s departure is cause for celebration. Uh, well, let’s meet somewhere. That works for me. I, uh — I will be there.

Rey: Alright, we’re going now.

Sharon: Great, I have two coffees for the road — one for you, one for chelsea.

Rey: Wow, you’re the best.

Sharon: Well, if I’m not the best, I’m pretty high up there.

Rey: You definitely are.

Sharon: Would you please call or text when you get to chicago? I just want to know that you’re safe.

Rey: I will, I will, but don’t you worry — I got connor to protect me.

Sharon: Right.

Rey: [ Chuckles ]

Sharon: Wait.

Rey: You remember that when i get back.

Sharon: I will. I love you.

Rey: I love you. Alright, let’s hit the road.

Connor: Yeah!

Rey: Okay, I got coffee, snacks, my phone, keys, tickets.

Chelsea: Yeah, I have my ticket right here. You have the ones for you and connor?

Rey: For sure. Where are they?

Chelsea: Oh, did you forget the tickets?

Rey: Oh, I must have left them in my other jacket. Mm.

Connor: Oh, no.

Rey: But it’s okay, it’s all good. I’ll drive home, pick them up, meet you guys back here, and then we’ll head out.

Chelsea: Yeah, it’ll be okay.

Connor: I don’t want to be late for the game. Please hurry.

Rey: I will. I’ll be back before you know it, okay?

Sharon: See you soon.

Rey: See you soon. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Chelsea: We’ll just wait out here, get out of the way.

Nick: Hey, I’m glad you’re here.

Sharon: Hey, what’s up?

Nick: Well, it turns out you were right.

Sharon: About what?

Nick: Victoria absolutely does not want me intervening with ashland, and she told me that when I went to see her.

Sharon: Were you at least able to be supportive like i suggested?

Nick: I tried my very best. The good news is ashland has decided to accept adam’s deal, so we’re not gonna have to deal with him for very much longer.

Sharon: Well, that’s good news for victoria and for the newmans in general.

Nick: It’s a giant relief. You know, I got to hand it to adam. He really stepped up for the family. My concern is he’s not just gonna accept a thank-you card for his efforts.

Sharon: What do you mean?

Nick: I think it’s gonna be very difficult to get him out of the ceo seat, so we may have gotten rid of one mess, but there’s another one right around the corner.

Sharon: Well, I hope not.

Nick: You alright?

Sharon: Yeah, just, uh, been a long day.

Adam: Sally? Sally? “Get comfortable and enjoy. Drink to your success. I’ll be back soon.” To a new beginning.

Victoria: Call mom, mobile.

[ Cellphone vibrates ]

Nikki: [ Gasps ] Victoria, where are you?

Victoria: I’m driving.

Nikki: Well, I’m so happy to hear from you. Your father and I are at society. Can you come join us?

Victoria: That sounds lovely, mom, but I need to do some thinking.

Nikki: Okay. I understand.

Victoria: I just wanted to call you and let you know that I’m okay.

Nikki: Well, I’m so glad you did. And don’t worry, everything will work out.

Victoria: Will it, really?

Nikki: Yes, of course it will.

Victoria: Because I really don’t think that anything is gonna be okay ever again. I loved him. I did, and he made a fool out of me. And I kept going back to him. I almost left with him tonight.

Nikki: Victoria, where are you? I will come get you.

Victoria: What is wrong with me? How could I let this happen? I loved him.

Nikki: Listen to me. I want you to pull over right now. Your father and I will come find you. And everything’s gonna be fine.

Victoria: No, everything is not gonna be fine. I keep making the same mistakes with men. [ Screams ]

[ Brakes squeal ]

[ Crashing ]

Nikki: Victoria?! Victoria?
