Nick: Beautiful morning. It’s like the universe is trying to make us feel better.
Noah: What’d you say, dad?
Nick: [ Sighs ] Nothing. Did you call mariah?
Noah: Yeah, yeah, her and tessa are coming over. God, man, it was — it was just awful having to tell them that rey died.
Nick: Look, it’s gonna be a difficult next couple days. There’s a lot of things we’re gonna have to do to help your mom, you know, to help her get through this.
Faith: Last night, I kept trying not to cry in front of her because I didn’t want to set her off.
Nick: Faith, if you got to cry, you cry, okay? Don’t hold back. I’m just talking about all the little things we need to do so she doesn’t have to worry about them, alright? Has anybody seen her this morning?
Faith: No, I kept hearing her move around in her room last night, so I don’t think she slept much.
Nick: Well, we’re gonna let her sleep as long as she wants. I went by the coffee house just to check in, and I brought some muffins and stuff.
Noah: Did you break the news to everyone there?
Nick: I did. Denise is gonna open and close for a while, so we don’t have to worry about that.
Faith: I can help out around here, too, so she doesn’t have to do any of the cooking or cleaning.
[ Sighs ] I guess I need to call rey’s family, you know, let celeste, arturo, and lola know.
Noah: I can handle the funeral arrangements.
Sharon: No. That’s for me to handle.
[ Knock on door ]
Chelsea: What is it? Is connor okay?
Adam: Connor’s fine. Can I come in?
Chelsea: Yeah, of course. What’s wrong? You never just show up here unannounced.
Adam: You haven’t heard?
Chelsea: Heard what?
Adam: [ Sighs ] Um…[ Sighs ] There was an accident last night.
Chelsea: Oh, no. It’s rey, isn’t it?
Victoria: [ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Knock on door ]
Nikki: Oh, you are here. Why haven’t you returned my calls?
Victoria: Just had a lot on my mind.
Nikki: I’m sure.
Victoria: And I turned my phone off.
Nikki: I stopped by your house to check on you. I didn’t think you would be coming in today.
Victoria: I have so much to do.
Nikki: I really think you should be at home resting after your car accident.
Victoria: I’ve been cleared for work, mom.
Nikki: Well, I was at the hospital, and I hear the doctor tell you how lucky you were to have only gotten a sprained knee.
Victoria: Yes, I know that. She gave me a knee brace and this ridiculous cane to use for a bit, so…
Nikki: She also told you to rest.
Victoria: I’m fine, mother. I’m not going to be moving around a lot.
Nikki: Darling, I’m not just talking about physical rest. I’m sure you’re still in shock over the accident and everything that happened with ashland anD…
Victoria: And rey’s death.
Ashland: Victoria! Ahh! Ahh! Ahh!
[ Groans ]
[ Breathing heavily ] Come on. Victoria?
[ Turn signal clicking ] Thank god you’re still alive. Okay, I’m gonna get you out of here. Here we go. Come on. Come on. Here we go. I got you.
[ Grunting ] It’s gonna be okay. It has to be. I’m not gonna let you die.
[ Breathes shakily ]
[ Knock on door ]
[ Groans ] Okay. Okay.
[ Sighs ] And tonight’s winning number, 43
Nick: Sharon, I really think you should be resting.
Sharon: I’ve got things to do. I can’t stay in bed all day. Um…I’m going to be strong. Rey would not want to see me falling apart.
Noah: Hey, mom, can we get you something to eat?
Faith: Dad got some muffins from crimson lights, or I can make you something hot.
Noah: How about some coffee?
Faith: Or tea?
Sharon: No, no, thank you. I’m fine. Um…you really don’t need to babysit me or wear kid gloves around me.
Faith: We’re just worried about you. We want you to know that you can lean on us.
Sharon: Hey, I don’t want any of you trying to hide your feelings when you’re around me. Alright? We’re all in this together. We’re gonna get through this together. For rey, okay?
Noah: Got it. For rey.
Sharon: Um, nick, I’m gonna make the call to rey’s family.
Nick: Are you sure that you don’t want me to call celeste, or maybe we can have somebody from the police department call?
Sharon: No. No, I actually practiced what i was going to say to her last night. But…how do you tell a mother that her son is dead?
[ Exhales sharply ] I’m fine. I’m fine. Hi, celeste. It’s sharon. Yeah, it’s really good to hear your voice too. Um…hey, I, uh — I have some really bad news. It’s rey. Rey, my wonderful husband and your beloved son…he’s gone.
Chelsea: I told myself all night rey must have gotten called into work, some last-minute case or something. Right? I mean, because he was so excited to take connor to the hockey game, but an accident. An accident, that makes sense. You know, I’m gonna give him a hard time about that because he really went to extremes to avoid taking us to this game.
Adam: Chelsea —
Chelsea: You know what? I’m just gonna call him.
Adam: Rey was driving back from the ranch with the hockey tickets when his car crashed. Rey died.
Chelsea: Oh, my god.
Adam: I am sorry.
Chelsea: I mean, I don’t — i don’t — I don’t understand. How could this happen?
Adam: It was foggy. It was a three-car accident, and victoria and ashland were actually in the other two cars.
Chelsea: Oh, my god, are they okay?
Adam: Yeah, rey was the only one that — that died.
Chelsea: Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Oh, sharon — does sharon know?
Adam: Nick told her, last night.
Chelsea: Connor. What about connor? Have you told him yet?
Nikki: I just think you’re back at the office too soon.
Victoria: The worst thing that I could do right now is stay at home and fixate on the situation. It would just — [Sighs] Just build up in my mind and overwhelm me. I need to be here. It’ll distract me from the guilt.
Nikki: You shouldn’t feel any guilt.
Victoria: I know, mom, okay? Everybody says that I shouldn’t feel guilt, but I do.
[ Sighs ] I shouldn’t have been driving in the first place after what happened with ashland and especially not in the fog.
Nikki: Sweetheart, rey’s death, however tragic, is not your fault.
Victoria: How do you know that? How does anyone really know that?
Ashland: How did you know i was here?
Victor: What do you mean how did I know you were here? I have my people keep tabs on you.
Ashland: I eluded your men pretty easily last night.
Victor: And if you hadn’t, that accident could have been avoided.
Ashland: Is that why you stopped by here, victor, to talk about what-ifs and other hypotheticals?
Victor: You mean like if i offer a man half a billion dollars to get the hell out of town and start a new life, and he’s still here? You mean like that hypothetical?
Ashland: I’ve honored the terms of the deal. I left the company. I’ve agreed to have my marriage annulled. Why you’re so upset this morning that I’m still here, I don’t know. You didn’t say a word about it last night at the hospital. In fact, you barely said a word to me at all.
Victor: Now, why the hell would I say a word to you? When I came to the hospital to see my daughter, I’m concerned about my daughter’s welfare, not yours. You think I came here to check up on you?
Ashland: The thought never occurred to me.
Victor: Tell me what happened. (Woman) is there a natural litter that actually works?!
Ashland: You and your family may despise, and for good reason, but my love for victoria has always been genuine.
Victor: Please spare me all that romantic nonsense, okay? You can keep it for your diary. Just give me the facts about the accident. What happened?
Ashland: I left the office last night.
Victor: You mean victoria threw you out.
Ashland: [ Sighs ] And I wanted to make sure she was okay, so I hung around the building for a while, but then i spotted your two guys. I figured they were there to try to run me out of town somehow. I drove around for a bit and i lost them. I went back to newman tower about the same time victoria was leaving. I thought she was going home. There was a lot of fog. I was worried about her, so i decided to follow her, make sure she got there safely. Turned out she was going for a much longer drive.
Victoria: I don’t really remember much. It’s all a blur.
[ Sighs ] I was upset, and I was on the phone with you. I don’t remember after that.
Nikki: Well, the police will investigate. They’ll be able to piece it all together and maybe give you some more answers that can alleviate some of your guilt.
Ashland: Out on the highway, I kept my distance following her. I saw a car approaching from the other direction.
Victor: You mean rey rosales’ car.
Ashland: Yeah, that’s right. I didn’t find that out till later. He was driving erratically. I don’t known why. Maybe he was trying to avoid something in the road, but…it was hard through the fog to see from that distance. I did see his car, though, veer into victoria’s lane, come straight at her. She swerved, went off the road, straight into a tree. I was watching her. I didn’t realize that rey was now coming straight at me, so i turned very sharply, and he slammed into the side of my car. I guess the impact made him flip over. I don’t know. I — I didn’t see that happen, but, uh…when I saw the car later, it was upside down. I ran into something and was knocked unconscious. Not for very long, I think. But when I came to…I saw victoria, I saw the flames. I struggled to get out of my car. I rushed to her. The flames were getting more and more intense, but I didn’t care. I just knew that I had to rescue her. I pulled her out with only seconds to spare before the car was engulfed in flames.
Victoria: One minute I was driving, and then I was surrounded by flames and being pulled out of the car. And he carried me to safety.
Victoria: He risked his life to save mine. The very person that I wanted to forget and…the reason that i was out driving in the first place.
[ Sighs ]
Victor: You saved my daughter’s life by risking your own. In spite of all the disdain and disgust I feel for you, in spite of all the harm and damage you’ve done to my family… I’m grateful.
Victoria: Ashland was there. And he saved my life. My life, not rey’S. Which only compounds my grief and my guilt.
Nikki: Victoria, stop thinking that way. What happened to rey is heartbreaking, but, my god, you’re alive. And for that, I will thank god and even ashland.
Sharon: And that’s all we know right now, but if I get more details, I will call you and let you know, of course. I’m so, so sorry. Please give my love to arturo and lola and the entire family. Yeah, let me know — let me know if you need anything, okay? We will get through this together, celeste. Um, listen, I’m going to handle the funeral arrangements from my end, but I will coordinate with you in case you have any specific requests and — what? Oh. Uh, okay, I understand. I will be in touch, then. Goodbye.
Nick: You’re very brave for making that call.
Sharon: I had to, mother to mother. She was very strong.
Noah: She’s probably still in shock.
Nick: Yeah, we all are. What did she say at the end of the phone call? It seemed like it bothered you. If you’ve been living with heart disease,
Mariah: Mom, is there anything we can do?
Tessa: We can help with calls or the arrangements?
Sharon: Well, I just made the hardest call.
Mariah: To celeste. Oh, my god, lola. I didn’t even think — we need to call lola.
Tessa: Oh, no, let her mom break the news. We can talk to her later.
Sharon: Well, we still have a lot of people we do need to call.
Noah: I already took care of our immediate family, mom.
Sharon: Oh, thank you, noah. What about chelsea and connor? Connor, that poor kid. Rey was supposed to take him to a game. He — he loved rey.
Faith: Everybody loved rey, mom.
Sharon: He’s really gonna take this hard. Who — who’s gonna tell connor?
Nick: I talked to adam. He’s gonna handle it.
Adam: I haven’t told connor yet. I think it’s a conversation that we both need to be a part of.
Chelsea: Thank you for waiting.
Adam: Mm-hmm. I kept him out of school. I didn’t tell him why, I just — I didn’t want him to hear it from teachers or from any of the other kids.
Chelsea: That’s a good idea. Sorry, I’m just having a — I’m just having a hard time comprehending all this. Um…but — but connor has to be our focus.
[ Exhales sharply ]
Adam: I agree. Um…but we have to tell him soon. I mean, everyone’s gonna be talking about this at the ranch, and I want him to hear it from us.
Chelsea: You’re right, we need to take care of connor. He’s a sensitive kid. And he adored rey. I mean, their bond was — was growing. This is going to be very, very hard on him.
Adam: Do you want to come with me now?
Chelsea: I think we should tell him here.
Adam: Okay, well, I will go get him. Give you some time to process the news. We just have to be careful what we say to him.
Chelsea: Of course.
Adam: Chels, this was a horrible accident, and it wasn’t anybody’s fault. We need to make sure that he understands that.
Ashland: I don’t need or expect gratitude from you or any of the newmans. I saved victoria because she needed to be saved, and I will never stop loving her.
Victor: And my thanks and gratitude for that is all you will get. You will leave town and never set foot in my daughter’s life again.
Ashland: That should be up to victoria.
Victor: Let me make myself clear. One act does not change our arrangement. If it hadn’t been for you, victoria would not have been on that road. You are responsible for her being on that road and for that accident and for rey rosales’ death as anyone.
Ashland: Victor, I’m not leaving town. I need time to heal.
Victor: You will leave town. We made a deal. You better keep up your end of that deal. Otherwise, you will have hell to pay.
[ Door slams ]
Mariah: Hey, mom.
Mariah: I just wanted to let you know, if you need someone to stay here, to help out or…or even just somebody to talk to.
Tessa: Or faith can stay with us if you want to be alone.
Sharon: Thank you, but you don’T… we don’t need any more disruptions to our normal routine, okay? This is upsetting enough without more disruptions.
Tessa: Okay. We’ll stay put.
Sharon: Hey, well, besides, you two need to spend time together. You have a wedding to plan. It’s right around the corner you know.
Mariah: Mom, no.
Sharon: What do you mean?
Tessa: The wedding is a non-issue.
Mariah: Yeah, under the circumstances, we couldn’t possibly go through with it. We’ll just postpone it until a later date.
Sharon: No, I’m not gonna let you do that. Go with simparica trio it’s triple protection made simple!
“The young and the restless”
Tessa: Sharon…this isn’t a time for celebration.
Mariah: Without rey at the wedding, it’s just not gonna be the same.
Sharon: You cannot delay. Rey was so happy for you two.
Faith: I’m sure rey would understand pushing the wedding date.
Sharon: No, you’re wrong. You cannot delay this. Rey would absolutely hate it if he were responsible for you delaying your big day.
Nick: Let’s just take it one step at a time, okay? I mean, this just happened. Let’s focus on the funeral and the arrangements. We don’t have to make any decisions about the wedding right now.
Mariah: Hey, what’s wrong?
Sharon: The funeral. Celeste, when I talked to her earlier, the thing that she asked about was…they want to, um, be able to bring rey home for the funeral. She wants rey to be laid to rest in miami.
[ Cellphone vibrates ]
Victoria: This is victoria.
Ashland: Thank you for answering. I wasn’t sure you would.
Victoria: Of course. Just hold a moment. Mom, I have to take this. Thank you for checking on me.
Nikki: I’ll see you later.
Victoria: What do you want?
Rey: I don’t want to intrude. I’d just be a third wheel in your mother-son time. I know how much connor treasures his time alone with you.
Chelsea: Oh, no, no, no, no. No, no, you’ve got it all wrong. When I first told connor that i would be taking him to chicago, his first question, “yeah, but rey’s still coming with us, too, right?”
[ Laughs ] He really wants to watch this game with you. You’ve become his new best friend. Please don’t let him down.
Rey: I’d be happy to go with you.
Chelsea: [ Crying ] Ever leave your clothes in the dryer
Ashland: I looked for you at the hospital after my burns were treated. I, um… they said you’d already left. I just wanted to know if you were okay and find out what the doctor said.
Victoria: I’m gonna be fine. I, um, have a couple of bruises and a sprained knee. I guess I got lucky.
Ashland: Good. I’m — I’m glad to hear that. I keep replaying it in my mind — the fire, the twisted metal. It was like some kind of a hellscape or something. It could have been a lot worse.
Victoria: But you pulled me out.
Ashland: Thank god.
Victoria: How are you? Your burns looked really painful. How’s your foot?
Ashland: There’s pain, but — but I can handle it, so… in fact, I, um — I probably deserve it.
Victoria: Well, the person who didn’t deserve what he got last night was rey.
Ashland: I agree.
Victoria: [ Sniffles ] I can’t help feeling responsible.
Ashland: No, victoria, you have to find a way to let go of that guilt. If you want to blame somebody, blame me, okay?
Victoria: How can I do that when you saved me? Where are you?
Ashland: I spent the night at the grand phoenix. I’ll be leaving town soon.
Victoria: I assumed that was the case.
Ashland: I’m sorry. For everything.
Victoria: I… I have to go.
Nick: How do you feel about rey being buried in miami?
Sharon: I don’t know. I never even considered it until celeste mentioned it just now on the phone. I just assumed that rey would be buried here, but I understand, you know, he was born and raised in miami, and to celeste, that is his home.
Faith: This is home, too.
Sharon: Well, I feel the same way. This is his home. He belongs here with me, with us. We are his family.
Noah: Yeah, but there’s another side to it. If any of us were to move away and, god forbid, something happened, mom, she would move heaven and earth to get us back here to genoa city. It’s our home. I’m sure rey’s mom feels the same way.
Sharon: As a mother, I do understand where celeste is coming from. I still just feel like rey belongs here with us. Any suggestions?
Nick: I think you should take some time with this. You don’t have to make a decision about it right now.
Sharon: [ Sighs ] You know who was always good at helping me make choices like this? Rey.
Connor: What’s wrong, mom?
Chelsea: I’m just tired. You’re still wearing your hockey jersey.
Chelsea: [ Sighs ]
Connor: I can tell something’s wrong. What’s going on? Why’d you keep me home from school? It’s never anything good when you guys want to talk to me together. Am I in trouble?
Adam: No. No, not at all.
Chelsea: Um…connor, we have to tell you something that’s very sad.
Connor: What is it?
Chelsea: Um…I don’t know how to say it, so I’m just gonna say it.
[ Sighs ] Um…
Adam: Rey was in a car accident.
Connor: Is he alright?
Adam: He, um…I’m very sorry to say this, connor, but rey died.
Connor: No, that can’t be true. I just saw him last night.
Chelsea: It’s a shock, i know, connor.
Connor: Is that why he didn’t come back to crimson lights? Did he die because he went home to get the hockey tickets?
Adam: It was an accident. It was unexpected, and nobody —
nobody — is to blame.
Connor: But he was driving because he was taking me to a game.
Adam: No one knows what caused it. The weather was bad. There could’ve been something on the road. But the point is none of this is your fault. Do you understand? What happened to rey is very, very sad. But your plans had nothing to do with rey’s accident.
Connor: I feel bad.
Chelsea: I know.
Adam: I know. And it’s okay.
Connor: But I really feel bad for mom. They’d become such good friends.
Chelsea: You’re right. We did become good friends. And I’m gonna miss him a lot. Hi, I’m pat and I’m 75 years old.
Victor: Sweetheart, I just ran into your mother. She said you’d be working here.
Victoria: There’s a lot to be done.
Victor: Don’t you think you should leave company business alone right now? You need to rest, you know.
Victoria: The future of newman/locke is entirely on my shoulders. I don’t want to let anyone down.
Victor: Sweetheart, I find your determination admirable, but this is too much now. You need to rest.
Victoria: That’s why I’m behind. I need to get caught up.
Victor: Okay. Well, what do you think if we had adam continue as temporary ceo, you know? He can run the whole thing until you have sorted everything out with ashland locke.
Victoria: Absolutely not.
Adam: Well, maybe we should head back to the ranch. You know what? We could stop for some ice cream on the way back.
Connor: I think I’m too sad for ice cream.
Chelsea: And it’s okay to be sad. You should go with your dad, and we’ll do something together later, okay? Something to honor rey’s memory.
Connor: I’d like that.
Chelsea: [ Crying ] Ah!
[ Sobbing ]
Sharon: I was so worried about that little duckling, but rey took care of it. We went down to the lake, and he rescued her.
Faith: I could listen to stories about rey all day.
Sharon: Me too. But I have something that I have to go and do.
Tessa: What’s that?
Sharon: I need to go to the morgue. Rey’s body is there. And I need to say goodbye. Who knows, maybe it’ll help me decide about the funeral.
Nick: Well, I will drive you.
Sharon: Thank you.
Nick: We’ll leave whenever you’re ready.
Sharon: NoaH…I’m fine. Okay, we can go.
Mariah: Mom, wait. There’s just something I have to tell you. And it’s what you would have — and you have — told me in the past. Please let your emotions out. We’re strong enough to handle your grief and we want to help you through it.
Faith: Yeah. You said we’re all in this together. Let us be here for you.
Noah: You’re always worried about everyone else.
Mariah: But you just lost your husband.
Tessa: You can be yourself with us. We’re not afraid of your tears.
Nick: I couldn’t agree more, sharon. You say you’re okay, but you have to be in pain. Just share that with us.
Sharon: I am going to be strong. I need to be strong, because if I let go, I may never recover.
Next week on “the young and the restless”…
Mariah: You’ve been an amazing person in my life, and you’ve loved me like a daughter. And I know what an amazing father you were to my sister, so would you walk me down the aisle?
Traci: You can always tell me anything.
Kyle: I don’t even know where to begin.
Jack: This is about diane jenkins. She is alive and well and here in genoa city.
