Jack: What are chances that three people we know — three people — in separate cars are in the same awful accident?

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I can’t wrap my head around it, actually.

Jack: The only mercy in it all, if you can call it that, is that rey didn’t suffer. The news said that he died instantly. Victoria and ashland are not as badly hurt. But, god, they’ve got to be devastated.

Phyllis: I’m sure sharon is having a horrible time.

Jack: Yeah, I’m gonna drop by and see her a little later today.

Phyllis: Mm, that’s nice. Yeah, in between knowing that diane is stuck upstairs in one of my hotel suites and kyle’s on his way from europe with harrison —

Jack: I barely slept last night thinking about the conversation I have to have with my son. When kyle finds out that diane is still alive, it’s gonna turn his world upside down.

Phyllis: Well, I’m glad you didn’t tell diane that he’s on his way. Otherwise, she wouldn’t be able to restrain herself.

Jack: Oh, which was made abundantly clear when i confronted her about showing up unannounced and unwelcome.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: Not gonna answer me, huh?

Diane: Jack, I —

Jack: We had an agreement! You had no business being here until after I spoke with kyle.

Diane: Right, but — but I — I thought that maybe phyllis was right, that he wouldn’t want anything to do with me, that he would just turn right around and go back to milan and I wouldn’t have a chance to see him. So I — I just wanted to be close. I’m — I know that you can understand that.

Jack: It is still kyle’s prerogative to leave without seeing you.

Diane: And that’s what you’re hoping will happen, isn’t it?

Jack: Oh, you are damn right it is.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Tessa: I was surprised when you said you wanted to come home. I…thought you would want to be with sharon.

Mariah: Well, faith wanted to see moses before school, and my mom made it very clear that we couldn’t do anything for her. So I…I figured she would want some space after she came back from the morgue. Seemed like all those people around her, it was getting to her.

Tessa: Yeah, I was stunned when faith said she wanted to go to class.

Mariah: Maybe she thought being busier today was better.

Tessa: I hope that’s all there is to it.

Mariah: Should I call her?

Tessa: Couldn’t hurt.

Mariah: [ Exhales sharply ] Hey, uh, faith. I know you’re at school and you seem to be holding up alright, but, um, I just — I wanted to let you know, if — if you need to talk or text me or — or even if you want to come by. Tessa and I are always here for you. Okay, I love you. Bye.

Nick: So now that the kids are gone, I think you should hold off going to the morgue until you figure out what you want to do about rey’s funeral.

Sharon: I don’t know why i was so caught off guard by celeste’s request. She is his mother. It makes perfect sense that she would want him buried in miami. I guess I just wasn’t prepared for it, you know? I wasn’t prepared for any of this.

Nick: How could you be? It was…so sudden.

Sharon: So should I just agree to this…or should i fight to have my husband buried here in genoa city where he’s made a life here with me, with so many other people who loved and admired him?

Nick: Are you asking my opinion or just thinking out loud? ‘Cause I definitely don’t want to overstep.

Sharon: No, you wouldn’t be overstepping. I’d really like to hear your take on things.

Nick: Well, in that case, i think you should think about what rey would want.

Diane: I wish you wouldn’t be so heartless. I explained myself to you. I told you how much it would mean to me to reconnect with our son. Is it really so impossible for you to believe that I could’ve become a better person? Someone worthy of being kyle’s mother?

Jack: Yes, quite frankly, it is almost impossible for me to believe. Whether it’s true or not, i can’t ignore what you did in the past. I can’t just take your word for it that you won’t break kyle’s heart again.

Diane: Jack, please —

Jack: I told you this is why I don’t want you in our lives! And I hope to god kyle agrees.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: So you put diane in her place. Good for you.

Jack: Yeah, fat lot of good it did. She’s still here and she’s determined to spend time with kyle.

Phyllis: Um…I have ways of keeping an eye on her. Just saying.

Jack: Well, hopefully diane will cooperate.

Phyllis: Well, she’s cooperating so far. She’s mainly in her room. She’s ordered room service about four times.

Jack: Okay, well, I thank you for any help you can give me. There are a lot of other people in this town who should know that diane is among the living — chief among them, nikki.

Phyllis: Yeah, since nikki thought she killed her.

Jack: Yeah, I was hoping to talk to her in private, soon, but given what happened last night, I’m sure she’s focused on victoria and ashland. I don’t want to add to her woes if the situation’s under control and diane continues to stay hidden.

Phyllis: Oh, she’ll continue, alright, if she knows what’s good for her.

Diane: [ Sighs ] This waiting is driving me nuts. I can’t — I can’t just sit here like this.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] Here you go.

Mariah: Thanks. You know, this used to be rey’s apartment before he moved in with my mom.

Tessa: That’s right.

Mariah: He loved my mom so much. And they should’ve had years and years together, and…that’s lost now. How did this happen?

Tessa: You’re right, it doesn’t make any sense.

[ Knock on door ]

Noah: It’s noah. Anyone home?

Tessa: Oh, yeah, come in.

Noah: Hey. You guys keeping it together?

Tessa: Trying.

Mariah: I imagine we’re doing about as good as you are. Just hating every minute of this.

Noah: Yeah. Yeah, it’s just…

[ Sighs ] I don’t know. I guess I really don’t have any words. Despite how horrible I feel, i know it’s nothing compared to what mom’s going through.

Mariah: How was she when you left?

Noah: Just trying to be strong. Not fall apart completely. I think she didn’t want to be vulnerable in front of us. I don’t know.

Tessa: Mm, that sounds like sharon.

Noah: I mean, that’s why i took off. I’m hoping that, you know, spending some time with dad will help. Maybe he can do something the rest of us can’T.

Sharon: Even though rey lived in wisconsin for years and made it his home, a part of him never left miami. When we would go visit there, he’d have the biggest smile on his face. He loved showing me his favorite spots. We had A…really great time just hanging out in celeste’s kitchen with his family, sitting around a table, laughing, playing cards. Nibbling on whatever celeste was cooking. You know, a couple of times, he asked me if I could ever make myself leave the snow and cold here, go live in sunny florida. He was joking, of course.

Nick: I mean, he wasn’t really joking, right? Especially not in february.

Sharon: I think a part of him never left miami. A lot more than he was ever willing to admit. And I know that he wished that he could spend more time with arturo and lola and celeste, and…now they’ll never see him again. I think rey would want to be buried near his family, where they could visit him and feel close to him.

Nick: Are you sure?

Sharon: I’m positive. Thanks, nick. Talking this out really helped.

Nick: Of course. Glad I could help.

Sharon: I’ll make the arrangements to have rey’s body transported to miami. Do you have a life insurance policy you no longer need? Now you can sell your policy – even a term policy – for an immediate cash payment. We thought we had planned carefully for our retirement. But we quickly realized we needed a way to supplement our income. If you have $100,000 or more of life insurance, you may qualify to sell your policy. Don’t cancel or let your policy lapse without finding out what it’s worth. Visit coventrydirect.Com to find out if your policy qualifies. Or call the number on your screen. Coventry direct, redefining insurance. For people who are a little intense about hydration.

Sharon: I should call celeste back and let her know the plan right away, so she can start getting things coordinated on her end. She’s gonna need to call a funeral home, priest for the services, and…a cemetery. But, you know, I’ll do as much as I can to help her out on my end.

Nick: Well, uh, you don’t have to do all this by yourself, you know.

Sharon: But, nick —

Nick: I’m just saying, let me and the rest of the family take some of this responsibility off your shoulders.

Sharon: It’s really okay. I — I want to do this. I need to do this for rey.

Nick: I understand.

Sharon: And then once everything’s taken care of, i can turn my attention to mariah and tessa’s wedding, because they are not going to delay their marriage because of this, not if I have anything to say about it.

[ Knock on door ]

Nick: Hey.

Abby: Hey.

Sharon: Hi.

Chance: Sharon, we’re — we’re really sorry.

Sharon: Thank you. Me too. He was your partner and he was your friend. I know how close the two of you were. You must be shattered.

Chance: This is a terrible loss for all of us, especially you and your family and all the people in this community that were inspired by him.

Abby: We just wanted to stop by and see how you were doing.

Sharon: Um, I’m hanging in.

Abby: Well, we don’t want to impose, so if you’d like, we can just drop this food off and, you know, come back and reach out another time. What would you prefer?

Mariah: I’m sure you’re just as lost as we are. Trying to figure out how to be there for mom.

Noah: Yeah. Yeah, I mean, I can take care of things around the house, look after faith, make sure she’s doing okay. That’s all important, but… I don’t know, I want to do more.

Tessa: I don’t know, I would just spend time with sharon. Show her how much you love her. That’ll bring her comfort. Maybe in time she’ll be willing to lean on you more. Just by being her amazing kids. That already makes such a world of difference.

Noah: Yeah, maybe. I don’t know, it’s just I feel like nothing’s gonna be enough. Nothing’s gonna take away the agony of rey’s death. His life was cut so brutally short, and I can’t seem to wrap my head around that. I mean, he was just — he was a really good guy.

Mariah: Rey was the best.

Noah: He was great to mom, all of us.

Mariah: [ Sighs ]

Noah: They were ridiculously happy together.

Tessa: I mean, that wasn’t by accident. They worked really hard. They went through a lot of stuff.

Mariah: Yeah, and they always came out the other side stronger for it.

Tessa: You know what always made an impression on me? There was this quiet, beautiful intimacy between the two of them. She always had coffee waiting for him whenever he had a break from work. And he always made an effort to plan these romantic nights — dinners, nights in.

Mariah: Yeah, that was really sweet.

Tessa: Fireworks are fabulous, but it’s nothing without a foundation. And what sharon and rey had…it felt like it could survive anything.

Noah: Adam’s interference, a battle with cancer.

Tessa: The way that rey took care of sharon when she was sick…took my breath away. He was so devoted to her, and she drew so much strength from him.

Mariah: That’s why I am so scared for her to lose him now, and I —

Tessa: What were you gonna say?

Mariah: No, I feel — I feel guilty and selfish for even thinking what I’m thinking. I mean, what’s wrong with me?

Jack: Kyle is gonna call me as soon as the jet lands. As much as I’m — whoa, whoa, whoa.

Phyllis: Oh. Oh, no.

Jack: Hey, where do you think you’re going?

Diane: I can’t stay cooped up in here. I am going crazy.

Phyllis: Well, you should’ve thought about that before you came into town.

Jack: Get back in the elevator now.

Diane: Who’s gonna recognize me? No one.

Phyllis: Oh, until you open your mouth, and then they’re gonna hear your voice and know it’s you.

Diane: I wasn’t planning on speaking to anyone, phyllis, just to walk around the park to stretch my legs. That is literally all I’m doing.

Phyllis: Are you kidding? She’s gonna screw everything up. You’re gonna screw everything up.

Jack: Yeah, and when one of your old enemies knows that you’re alive and in town before I have a chance to speak to kyle, this whole thing could blow up in your face. Are you willing to risk that just because you’re feeling a little antsy?

Diane: [ Scoffs ] Be ready for whatever life throws your way.

Phyllis: Diane, this is my hotel. Get out of the lobby — I’m serious. You don’t belong down here. If you want to relax, perhaps we’ll send a masseuse up to your room. That’d be great. Maybe a bottle of rosé. On the house, no arsenic.

Diane: Oh, that sounds lovely and not a threat at all.

Phyllis: No, let’s get up there. Come on, let’s go.

Jack: I’ll touch base later. Nikki. Hi.

Nikki: Hello.

Jack: I’m glad I saw you this morning. I’ve been thinking a lot about you.

Nikki: Before we get into that, what’s going on over there?

Jack: Where?

Nikki: Uh, phyllis leading some woman into the elevator in quite a hurry, too. Who was she?

Noah: Whatever you’re thinking, I’m sure it’s not nearly as bad as you’re making it out to be. And even if it were, who are we to judge?

Mariah: I feel sick about rey, and I’m so worried about mom. But underneath that, there’s this terror of what it would be like to go through that myself. To lose the person that…you love, who’s your whole life — I mean, how do you even move on from something like that?

Tessa: I wouldn’t feel guilty about having thoughts like that. After a tragedy like this, it brings up a lot of intense feelings and questions.

Mariah: Like, are people insane to love so fiercely when there’s so much to lose?

Noah: No. No, not at all. It’s hard enough to even find love. So when you do, you got to grab it and hold onto it for as long as you can. You can’t be scared of losing it. You just got to live it, come what may.

Tessa: Mariah…I am here, safe and well. And I would do anything to stay by your side, for better or for worse. You believe that, don’t you?

Mariah: I do. You know, it’s funny. The way you chose to reassure me, it sounded a lot like wedding vows.

Tessa: I thought the moment called for it.

Mariah: Well, we’re probably gonna have to wait a while for our wedding. I know mom said we couldn’t postpone, but I — I just can’t see how we should go through with it.

Tessa: I agree. We should wait.

Noah: Well, I don’t think we should just jump to any decisions. That wouldn’t be fair.

Mariah: Well, I mean, we wouldn’t be robbed of anything. A month ago, we didn’t even have a date.

Noah: I wasn’t thinking about you guys. I meant it wouldn’t be fair to mom.

Sharon: Why don’t you stay? I know how much you both cared about rey.

Nick: Yeah, sit down. Let me take this. I’ll put it away.

Abby: Sure, thanks.

Nick: While I’m doing that, let me get back to celeste, okay? You just visit with chance and abby. Like you said earlier, it would be better to get things underway sooner rather than later. Just let me do this for you, okay?

Sharon: Okay. I appreciate that.

Abby: Sharon, if there’s anything that you need, anything we can do…

Chance: Just say the word and we’re on it.

Sharon: Thank you. Things are pretty much under control right now.

Abby: Okay, well, if you change your mind…

Sharon: I appreciate that. Chance, you were the last person to hear rey’s voice.

Chance: Yeah, we — we spoke briefly on the phone as he was leaving the ranch.

Sharon: How did he sound?

Chance: Good. Like his usual self. Nothing stood out, if that’s what you’re asking. It was, uh — it was totally normal.

Sharon: When he was on his way out to go back to the house and pick up the tickets he’d left, I kissed him and said, “i love you.” It was very casual. It was no different than any of the other times we’d done that before, but…just I’m really glad we did that. I’m glad I told him. I had no idea that would be our last goodbye. Good checkup?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Sharon: Sorry about that.

Abby: Please don’t apologize.

Chance: Yeah, we want to hear whatever you feel like sharing.

Sharon: Well, I think I’ve shared enough for the moment ’cause if I get started, I’ll turn into a puddle on the floor, and I don’t want that to happen.

Abby: Understood.

Chance: You know, earlier, when you said you knew how much we cared about rey, you were so right. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner, a better friend. I was truly glad to be working with him again.

Sharon: I know he felt the same way about you.

Chance: And everyone at the force held him in such high regard. I mean, paul would say all the time how much he respected his instincts and what a good example he was for the younger officers and rookies.

Sharon: Yeah, he really liked mentoring. It was kind of — it was his thing.

Chance: I remember he used to say that it’s better to teach someone to do the right things from the beginning rather than make up for the mistakes along the way. You know, he wasn’t just a good investigator. We always knew you can count on rey, no matter what. You know, if things got hairy out in the field, you knew rey had your back. And that went way beyond work. When I was in a crisis, I was changing my mind 10 times a day about whether I was ready to go back to work or not, rey was kind and patient with me. He always gave me stellar advice. You know, he always supported me. Even when the conversations were tough, I…I knew rey would be straight with me. I’m gonna miss that very much. Rey was a good friend.

Abby: To both of us.

Chance: He’ll never be forgotten.

Phyllis: Go. Don’t you dare leave this room without alerting me first, please.

Diane: Okay. So are you going to call room service?

Phyllis: What are you talking about?

Diane: Well, you promised me a bottle of rosé, remember?

Phyllis: Get it yourself.

Diane: On the house.

Phyllis: No, we’re not doing that for you.

Diane: Phyllis —

Phyllis: And by the way, the masseuse, he’s not coming up. If you want a masseuse, you call for it on your own. Got it?

Diane: So in other words, you will lie to my face if it means keeping me locked up in here.

Phyllis: Yes! I will lie to your face until you understand the severity and the stakes of the situation.

Diane: I understand them perfectly.

Phyllis: Well, then act like you understand it, diane. Or more stringent measures will have to be taken.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] Like what?

Phyllis: Well, like possibly taking away your phone or…handcuffing you to that bed. Or locking you in the closet.

Diane: Hey, I’ve got a better idea. Why don’t you leave me the hell alone and stay out of this? Because you are constantly butting in where you don’t belong, and whether you like it or not, this is about jack and our son and me. Not you.

Phyllis: Oh, that’s where you’re wrong. This is very much about me. I’m not going anywhere.

Jack: How’s victoria doing?

Nikki: Physically, she’ll recover. But we’re all pretty shaken up about rey.

Jack: Just so tragic. He was a good man.

Nikki: From what i understand, nothing could’ve been done to save him. Victoria’s quite upset about it, even though it wasn’t her fault.

Jack: I’m sorry to hear that, but thank god she survived.

Nikki: Yes. Her injuries are minor. She’s gonna be okay.

Jack: What about ashland? How’s he doing?

Nikki: He’ll be fine.

Jack: Well, if there’s anything I can do to help, if —

Nikki: How about answering my earlier question? Why did you dance around the subject of that woman who got on the elevator with phyllis? Jack, I know you. I know when you’re being evasive, and if you keep it up, I’m gonna be more suspicious than I am now.

Jack: You’re bound to find this out eventually. I just don’t want you sandbagged. Are you sure you have the time and the emotional strength to handle this? I know you’re dealing with a lot at home.

Nikki: I’m quite well, thank you. And as far as my schedule, I was going to meet somebody here on newman business, but they canceled at the last minute.

Jack: There’s no easy way to say this.

Nikki: My god, jack, how bad can it be?

Jack: What I’m about to tell you is gonna blow your mind and then some.

Nikki: Okay, now you’re making me nervous. Whatever it is, will you please just tell me?

Jack: This is about diane jenkins and a dreadful night years ago when she was murdered in the park. Only she wasn’T. There was no murder — self-defense or otherwise. Because diane is not dead. She is alive and well and here in genoa city.

Why hide your skin

Noah: You have a date set — friday the 13th of may, last one of the year, right?

Tessa: Yeah, the next one isn’t until january.

Noah: Alright, then. You know, mom asked you to go along with the wedding as planned. I think you should honor her wishes.

Mariah: Noah, her husband just died. She’s in shock. I doubt she knows what she wants.

Noah: I’m sure she’s overwhelmed right now, and i agree, in the past, mom has not always realized what was best for her, but I can’t help but thinking that after everything she’s been through over the years, that she’s stronger now more than ever. So if she asks you to go along with the wedding, I think she means it. And who knows? Who knows? Maybe this will help her work through the pain of losing rey. This can be how you two help her cope. And I think the celebration needs to happen now more than ever.

Phyllis: Need I remind you that your son is also my son-in-law, so this is very much about me.

Diane: Hmm. Believe me, phyllis, I haven’t forgotten that kyle is married to summer. I just refuse to acknowledge that you and I are part of the same family tree.

Phyllis: Yeah, well, I find it equally abhorrent. Whatever you do to your son affects my daughter, you got it? You made it an agreement that you wouldn’t show up in genoa city until he had a chance to talk to kyle so kyle could process this.

Diane: And when exactly will that be?

Phyllis: I have no idea. Soon, I guess. Diane, if you want to parade around town and broadcast your resurrection, be my guest. I mean, I’m sure that kyle will appreciate your complete lack of discretion and your sensitivity.

Jack: I’m sorry, I know this is a giant bombshell I am dropping on you. I had hoped to sit with you and tell you all of this in private.

Nikki: I know you wouldn’t lie to me about this, jack, but it isn’t true. Diane jenkins is dead. Whoever that woman is is lying to you. It’s a trick.

Jack: Nikki, I’m telling you the truth. It is diane. I have seen her, I have spoken with her at length several times. So has phyllis. We both heard her sordid story. It is diane.

Nikki: Well, I don’t believe it. It simply cannot be.

Jack: Think back to that time. Diane had made an enemy of pretty much everyone she knew in genoa city with her lies and her schemes and her personal attacks. She felt the walls closing in, and she faked her own death to get out of this town and start her life in a new town.

Nikki: And how is that possible? Because there was a huge investigation into her death. I have spent all these years believing that I killed her in self-defense. So how did she manage to pull this off?

Jack: With a big assist from deacon sharpe.

Nikki: Deacon? That son of a bitch. And she has decided to rise from the dead now why?

Jack: She claims she is a changed woman. That she is reformed. And she wants another chance with kyle. She saw a giant opportunity, and she is still a master manipulator.

Nikki: Take me to her.

Jack: No, wait, nikki —

Nikki: Jack, I want to see this for myself. Does your plug-in fade too fast?

Mariah: I’m not sure you made your point, noah. Tell us how you really feel.

Noah: Alright, I might have gone a little overboard. I’m sorry, I don’t mean to pressure you guys. Obviously, it’s your decision, and if you want to push the wedding ’cause, you know, you’re grieving for rey and it all feels like a little too much to deal with, then by all means, please postpone. All I’m saying is don’t push it back for mom’s sake when she stated very clearly that’s not what she wants you to do.

Mariah: You’re pretty smart.

Noah: Don’t sound so surprised.

[ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Okay, so the wedding is still happening on schedule.

Mariah: Yeah.

Noah: Great.

Mariah: You know, now that i think about it, maybe it is the perfect time, say our vows in front of all the people we love while we’re hurting and missing rey. You know, try to spread a little hope and joy.

Tessa: And promise to be there for each other, no matter what.

Sharon: Thanks, you guys, for everything, for the food and the kind words about rey. That — it really meant a lot to me.

Chance: Well, if you need anything, consider us on call.

Abby: Make sure she doesn’t forget that.

Nick: I will, I promise.

Abby: Take care.

Chance: Bye.

Sharon: Appreciate it, you guys.

Nick: So I talked to celeste.

Sharon: What did she say?

Nick: Well, she is very, very grateful that you’re honoring her request. So I went ahead and made the arrangements to have rey transported down to miami after the autopsy’s finished.

Sharon: [ Sighs ] The autopsy. Oh, that means that I don’t have that much time to go to the morgue and see him. Um…would you go with me right now?

Nick: Sure. You up for that? Earlier, you weren’T.

Sharon: I don’t know how i could ever be ready to walk into that place, but…I need to see him. I need to say goodbye.

Kyle: This is your grandpa jack’s house, remember? He’s gonna be so happy to see you.

[ Groans ] Dad, we’re here! The plane got in early.

Harrison: Grandpa?

Kyle: Dad? Anybody home? Huh. Well, your grandpa said he’d be here waiting for us all morning. Something must’ve come up. Wonder what it could be.

Diane: You have a real talent for blowing things out of proportion when it suits your purpose. All I wanted to do was take a walk, get some fresh air, in disguise. I do have a teeny bit of practice when it comes to remaining undetected.

Phyllis: Not in genoa city, you don’T.

Diane: Oh, fine, fine. Fine! Go ahead and paint me as reckless and egocentric. I know I’m never going to convince you I’m a different person. And you know what, phyllis? I don’t care, because the only people that matter to me here are jack and kyle.

Phyllis: All the more reason to stay inside.

[ Knock on door ] That’s probably jack.

Jack: Change of plans.

Nikki: Where is she?
