Diane: I’d ask how you got in here, but that’s just who you are, isn’t it? Would you like a drink?

Victor: This is not a social visit.

Diane: Of course not. Hmm. I’ve been expecting you. I’m sure that as soon as she spoke with me, nikki ran write to you — “guess what.” I’m surprised it took you this long to show up. Maybe you’re slowing down a bit.

Victor: I’m as fast as I’ve always been. How about you? How fast would you get out of genoa city? Your visit here will be a short one.

Mariah: Kyle?

Kyle: Hey, mariah.

Mariah: Hi! I had no idea that you were home from milan. How long are you here for? Can I join you? I’m so glad you’re here because we have so much to catch up on.

Sally: Why is sneaking away to a hotel in the middle of the day so sexy?

Adam: Well, I think it is the juxtaposition of normal, mundane midday tasks with something amazing.

Sally: Mm-hmm, that was more of a rhetorical question, but thank you.

[ Chuckles ]

Adam: But I will say getting a suite in phyllis’ hotel without her knowing makes it extra hot.

Sally: Look at us, two people who just admitted to each other that we are falling in love, having a little romantic rendezvous. Wait. Are we becoming a couple?

Adam: I don’t know, I wasn’t expecting any of this.

Sally: Me neither. We made such an effort to keep things professional, but this is definitely not professional.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, all those declarations that nothing is going on between us. Although I will say that I sold that a little more than you did.

Sally: Not true. All of my assurances to chloe and to chelsea and even you were legit, because I did not want to ruin my chances at newman fashion or newman media.

Adam: And now newman/locke.

Sally: Actually, what was most important to me was not ruining my chances with what i really wanted.

Adam: And what is that?

Sally: You.

Billy: You’re up and around. That’s good to see.

Victoria: I’m walking, hooray.

Billy: Are you in pain?

Victoria: No, I — I am — I’m feeling okay. Guess I’m pretty lucky, all things considered.

Billy: Yeah. It’s tragic about rey.

Victoria: I wish I hadn’t been out there driving on that road. Maybe things would’ve turned out differently.

Billy: You can’t think that way, vick. It was an accident. It wasn’t your fault.

Victoria: Right. Many people have assured me of that.

Billy: Why were you out there on that road? That’s not your usual way home.

Victoria: I thought you said that you didn’t blame me, and now you’re asking me how I got myself into this predicament.

Billy: I’m not blaming you. I’m just trying to put the pieces together and understand what happened. Ashland was out there, but he wasn’t in the car with you. He was in his own car. Was he following you? Hi, I’m karen.

Diane: Threatening helpless women? That’s really not your style. Or is that you’ve become these days — a common thug?

Victor: Hmm. I would never threaten a helpless creature of any kind, you know? But when someone as venomous and potentially evil as you comes across my path, all bets are off.

Diane: Relax, I mean no harm.

Victor: Then pack your damn bag. Get out of town before they find out you’re here.

Diane: I know that most of the citizens of genoa city don’t care for me, and I’m sure they’ll be surprised to find out that I’m alive.

Victor: They won’t like to hear it.

Diane: Yeah, well, I didn’t expect a welcome home party. But I figure if I stick around long enough, eventually they’ll tolerate me.

Victor: Don’t hold your breath, okay?

Diane: Phyllis is putting up with me. I’m — I’m staying in her hotel.

Victor: She’s putting up with you because she’ll keep an eye on you this way.

Diane: Probably.

Victor: Mm. So enough with chit-chat.

Diane: Fine. I’m sure nikki filled you in on my metamorphosis.

Victor: It was a bunch of bull. You don’t transform into someone else after a few sessions of therapy.

Diane: I’m guessing that’ll be the consensus around town.

Victor: Right.

Diane: So only newmans are allowed to change.

Victor: What do you mean?

Diane: Oh, please. Nikki has become the pious poster child for sobriety and clean living. She’s traveled quite a distance from when you first met. And your son adam, he’s turned into this respectable family man, putting aside all those nasty tricks from his past.

Victor: My wife and my son evolved in what they are now after many years.

Diane: Victor, I have zero expectations from anyone in this town, including you. So you can keep your threats to yourself. I’m here for one reason only — to explain to my son why I did what I did all those years ago and ask for his forgiveness.

Kyle: You look great.

Mariah: That is so nice. And so true.

[ Both laugh ]

Kyle: I missed you.

Mariah: I missed you more.

Kyle: I’m just here on business. Dad needed me in genoa city.

Mariah: Oh, I didn’t hear anything about that at jabot.

Kyle: It was very short notice. I didn’t have time to tell anybody.

Mariah: Got it. So snowflake’s not with you? Is she, like, the mayor of milan now? Contessa?

Kyle: Summer is wonderful. She had to stay in italy to oversee marchetti’s new season launch. So it’s just me and harrison on this trip.

Mariah: Aww. A daddy-son trip — I love it. So how long are you staying?

Kyle: Not sure. It — it depends.

Mariah: Depends on what?

Kyle: Um, a couple things. A few issues to work out.

Mariah: Okay. Well, I hope those issues are very complicated and take a long time to resolve because tessa and I are getting married on may 13th. So please, please say that you will still be here. I mean, you were the first champion of our love, and the wedding wouldn’t be the same without you.

Adam: Mm. As much as I would love to stay here all day, we should get back to the office.

Sally: Do we have to?

Adam: There is so much at stake, and things could change any minute, so the answer is yes.

Sally: Okay. But before we go, there’s something that I need to ask you before we get dressed and put on our work personas.

Adam: What is it?

Sally: How did it go with sharon? I know you went to see her to offer your condolences, but you never said what happened.

Adam: [ Sighs ] It, um…it was hard.

Sally: Look, I don’t want to pry, okay? So if you don’t want to talk about it…

Adam: No, I’m okay. I just… sharon’s in a lot of pain. She has a lot of anger and grief, and it’s all very raw. Rey was a good man. He was good to her, so it’s a — it’s a shock and she’s struggling.

Sally: Are you glad you went?

Adam: Yeah. Yeah, she has a lot of people around to help her — she has nick and her kids — but she did say that I was the first person that she really broke down in front of. I pushed her, I told her that she could be herself around me, but she was trying to keep a lid on it, but the emotions just came pouring out. You don’t really want to hear this, do you?

Victoria: I really don’t want to get into it anymore. I wish that it had never happened. I don’t want to relive the accident or what led up to it.

Billy: Okay. I got to say, you make the cane look cool.

Victoria: I’m not afraid to whack you with it if I need to.

Billy: You know, it feels like you’re doing your best to avoid me ever since we had that conversation about ashland’s cancer scam. Do you regret being vulnerable with me?

Victoria: I regret most of my conversations with you.

Billy: Geez, I hope that’s not true. I really liked being there for you. It’s only fair with the amount of times you were there for me over the years.

Victoria: It’s not a contest, billy.

Billy: No, I know that, but it felt good that you were able to confide in me. Because you can. You know that, right?

Victoria: Yes, I do.

Billy: Can I ask you one more question?

[ Sighs ] Is ashland locke still in your life?

Kyle: I will do everything in my power to be here for your wedding. I’m so happy for you and tessa. I didn’t realize you had set a date.

Mariah: Oh, yeah, it’s coming together pretty quickly. It’s why you haven’t gotten a save-the-date e-mail yet. Yeah, we’ve had some — some complications.

Kyle: You mean rey’s death. I’m so sorry to hear about that. I heard from lola. She’s devastated.

Mariah: I know. She loved her brother so much.

Kyle: How are you doing?

Mariah: Um…I’m in shock. And I miss him. But I’m mostly concerned for my mom. You know, we wanted to push the wedding date back, but she wouldn’t let us. I think planning it brings her joy, and I certainly want her to have that.

Kyle: When your life turns upside down, you need touchstones and to have a purpose.

Mariah: Yeah. We want the wedding to be meaningful and symbolic, so we asked nick and my mom to walk us down the aisle.

Kyle: Those are perfect choices.

Mariah: And we were also thinking about who else we would like standing up there with us.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] I see where you’re going with this.

Mariah: Are you interested?

Kyle: I would be honored to be your man of honor.

Mariah: Oh, um…sorry, not so fast. We had a different role in mind for you.

Kyle: Um…I didn’t mean to assume.

Mariah: No, no, no, we have a more important role in mind for you. How would you feel about officiating our wedding?

Victor: Kyle is now a member of the newman fold, alright?

Diane: Because he married your granddaughter.

Victor: And that means he’ll be accorded the security of a newman.

Diane: Whatever that means.

Victor: That means I have his back.

Diane: I just got back from reuniting with kyle. A meeting that jack helped arrange.

Victor: Really? That was a huge mistake on jack’s part.

Diane: No, I don’t think so. I had a positive first conversation with kyle. He’s married and in love, and I’m thrilled for him. And I promise I’m not going to do anything to interfere or make him upset in any way.

Victor: You’re delusional if you think you’d come back to town here and bring people peace and happiness. Especially not to your son kyle, whom you abandoned.

Diane: Victor, I mean no harm. I only want what’s best for kyle.

Victor: If that is the case, you’d get your behind on a bus, get the hell out of town. There’s one good thing. You know who I am and you know what I’m capable of. And it’s far more than sneaking into your hotel suite.

Diane: [ Exhales sharply ]

Victoria: I am not sharing any details about what happened between ashland and me.

Billy: I don’t need details. Maybe just some broad strokes.

Victoria: Alright. Ashland is leaving newman/locke and we are having our marriage annulled.

Billy: Well, that is a relief. I hope that means that you are finally believing the truth about him and that ashland is leaving town.

Victoria: I don’t know. I haven’t — I haven’t talked to him.

Billy: You haven’t talked to him since the accident?

Victoria: Briefly.

Billy: How briefly?

Victoria: Billy, I don’t see how this is any of your concern.

Billy: Look, I’m sure this is very conflicting for you. I mean, he saved your life, but that does not absolve him of his many crimes, and I — I just hope that he still doesn’t have a hold over you.

Victoria: I wish you would stop trying to psychoanalyze me.

Billy: Okay. I apologize.

Victoria: I know the only reason you’re doing this is so that you can say “I told you so.” I know — I know that I made a mistake with ashland, and I know you tried to warn me and I — i should’ve listened to you and to nicholas instead of dismissing your concerns. But the past is the past and it can’t be undone. The only thing that I can do right now is move forward, and that’s exactly what I intend to do.

[ Sighs ]

Lily: Victoria, hi.

Victoria: Hi, lily.

Lily: I’m really sorry to hear about the accident, and i hope that you’re feeling better.

Victoria: Well, you can ask billy about it because he seems to know everything.

Lily: What was that about? No matter who you are,

Billy: I think victoria is a little sensitive at the moment.

Lily: Well, what did you say to her?

Billy: I didn’t say anything bad, I really didn’T. I was simply showing concern for the mother of my children, because the truth is she could’ve been killed in that car accident.

Lily: Yeah, I understand that, but clearly she didn’t want to hear what you had to say.

Billy: No, then i inadvertently hit a nerve.

Lily: How?

Billy: I brought up ashland, and she got a little sensitive.

Lily: Well, she probably thinks it’s none of your business.

Billy: Yeah, that’s what she said.

Lily: I’m sure she doesn’t want you looking for ways to blame ashland.

Billy: Well, it’s so easy because he’s a criminal. And the truth is I feel like this whole situation is going to affect her judgment.

Lily: She’s still the same smart, savvy woman she’s been.

Billy: I know that.

Lily: I mean, is this a pattern with you, where you feel like you have to save the women in your life? Is that gonna happen with us? Are you gonna think that I can’t solve my own problems and you’re gonna interfere, whether I want you to or not?

Sally: Of course I want to hear about sharon. That’s why I asked. I want you to feel like you can tell me anything. Openness is the basis of our relationship. It’s why I told you about my past and the scam with the terminal illness, and I hope it’s why you told me about yours. We have baggage. But not with each other, and i want to keep it that way.

Adam: I concur.

Sally: So I’m glad that you went to see sharon. And I know that it can be hard helping someone through their grief, so I’m here if you need to talk.

Adam: Well, thank you.

Sally: And just so you know, I’m not jealous of sharon. Or chelsea. Might sound cocky, but I am pretty confident in our relationship.

Adam: Well, that is good to hear. And it’s different for me.

Sally: In what way?

Adam: At various times, I’ve been married, I’ve been obsessed and destructive and detached. But this — this is something else. Maybe because it began slowly. But it feels so right.

Sally: Very right. And you don’t feel guilty.

Adam: What do you mean?

Sally: Well, sharon is suffering and alone. And we’re happy. And dare I say it again — falling in love.

Adam: If anything, seeing sharon made me realize we might be taking this too slowly. And that may be the reason why i finally confessed that I’m falling in love with you, too. I mean, why waste time worrying about what other people think? Anything can happen. Life can change in an instant, so we need to grab every moment we can.

Sally: I couldn’t agree more.

[ Chuckles ] Mm. [ Chuckles ]

Victor: Adam, I’m in the office. You’re not here, but I need to talk to you, alright?

Nikki: There you are. I’ve been trying to reach victoria. Have you heard from her?

Victor: No.

Nikki: She’s not in her office, she’s not answering her calls or messages.

Victor: Well, why don’t i have someone look for her?

Nikki: No, that’s alright. I’m late for a meeting. I just can’t stand victoria not knowing.

Victoria: Not knowing what?

Nikki: Oh, I’m glad you’re here. We’ve been trying to reach you.

Victoria: I know. Look, I’m sorry I haven’t responded, but I’m just really not in the mood for any lectures about ashland. I’ve had enough of them for today.

Nikki: It’s not about that.

Victoria: Well, what is it then?

Nikki: Rey rosales.

Victoria: Mom, please, not right now.

Nikki: You are going to want to hear this. It’s about what caused the accident.

Victoria: Look, I don’t want to get into it. I really don’T. I have told chance everything that I can remember. I know everybody tells me that I’m not to blame, but then everybody else wants to hear more details, and it’s quite clearly my fault.

Victor: Will you kindly listen to your mother?

Nikki: The autopsy showed that rey had a heart attack. That’s what caused the accident and what caused his death.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Better skin from your body wash?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I’m relieved. I really feel terrible that that’s my first reaction, but I couldn’t stop blaming myself for rey’s death.

Nikki: Darling, it’s natural to feel relief. That’s why we wanted you to learn this news right away.

Victor: I hope this alleviates some of your guilt.

Victoria: Even though the accident was — was not my responsibility, I mean, it was still a tragedy and I was still involved. It’s gonna take me a little bit of time to put that behind me, i think.

Nikki: You’re right. But I hope this news helps. I wish I could stay longer and talk through this with you, but I have a meeting with the logistics team. I’ll call you later?

Victoria: Thank you, mom. The news did help. I just — I feel a little —

Nikki: Honey, you don’t have to explain. You’ve been through so much the last few weeks.

Victoria: I love you.

Nikki: I love you too.

Victoria: Okay. Well, I should get going, too. I came by looking for adam.

Victor: No, no, no, no. You and I need to…discuss something.

Victoria: And what’s that?

Victor: Adam’s position at newman/locke.

Victoria: Yes, that’s actually why I came by to talk to him. Do you know where he is?

Victor: Mnh-mnh. He’ll be here shortly.

Victoria: I came to tell him that his services as ceo are no longer needed.

Victor: I think that’s a mistake.

Victoria: Why? Why would you think that? Nothing has changed since this morning. I told you I’m ready to go back to work. We no longer need a temporary ceo.

Victor: [ Sighs ] Sweetheart, I admire and respect your desire to go back, but for heaven’s sake, you have a lot on your plate. Think of what you’ve gone through. Why not have adam be co-ceo?

Victoria: So we would just run the company together, adam and me?

Victor: Yes, adam and you. I think it’s time that the newmans show a united front, especially nowadays, you know?

Victoria: My answer is no. No, I don’t want and I don’t need adam in the mix. I was doing fine before ashland came along, and I will do fine now. I’ve accomplished a lot at newman, and we will be dropping the name “locke” as soon as possible. We’re gonna go back to the original name of newman enterprises.

Victor: I like that.

Victoria: I had a feeling you would.

Victor: But, sweetheart, we need to discuss adam’s position.

Victoria: There’s nothing to discuss. And if you’re going to force the issue, then you’re gonna have to make a choice — adam or me.

Billy: This is not a pattern. I never doubt your ability to handle any situation that you face. And I am very aware that the women in my life are smarter and more capable than I am. But that does not prevent me from being concerned about ashland locke.

Lily: I know that you don’t trust him.

Billy: I do not trust him, but it is past that at this point. I have a deep hatred for that man. He lied about having cancer. That must strike a chord with you.

Lily: Of course it does. It does, but I still don’t understand your need to interfere.

Billy: I don’t —

[ Sighs ] I — I’m advising victoria, okay? She can choose to listen to me or not. Victor is interfering. I’m not that bad.

Lily: Yeah, not yet.

Billy: Actually, victor and i may end up on the same side of this problem — doing anything we can to get ashland out of town.

Lily: What are you talking about?

Billy: Well, he’s still here. I mean, he was following her when that accident happened. He’s been kicked to the curb at newman/locke, and their marriage is being annulled, but yet, he’s still here. So to me, that means he’s up to something. Is he plotting revenge? I don’t know. But it’s ashland locke, so it’s not gonna be good.

Kyle: Officiating at your wedding, um…that’s a real honor, but I — I don’t know if I can say yes.

Mariah: It’s simple. You know, you can just get ordained online. I’ll even set you up.

Kyle: No, it’s not that.

Mariah: I mean, do you not want to do it?

Kyle: No, not at all, I would love to. It’s just, um…I’m — I’m dealing with some personal things right now, and I can’t commit to such an important role. I wouldn’t want to let you down.

Mariah: Well, you just said that you would do anything to be there, so what could possibly force you to let us down?

Kyle: Um…things come up.

Mariah: What is it? Is it something with you and summer? Oh, god, I hope not.

Kyle: No, no, no, we’re fine. We’re great, in fact.

Mariah: Look, I know that we haven’t talked a lot lately. You know, time zones and wedding planning — don’t even get me started on the adoption process. But you have always been somebody that I can count on. And I hope you feel the same way about me.

Kyle: You know that I do.

Mariah: So please tell me what’s going on, because it’s — it’s becoming increasingly obvious that something is wrong.

Kyle: Yeah, yeah, something is wrong, and…I’m still in shock. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to react.

Mariah: Kyle, what is going on?

Kyle: Can we go back to the house? This needs to be a very private conversation. I could really use your friendship right now. What are you recommending

Victor: I think you’re acting rashly. You haven’t thought this through.

Victoria: I don’t have to think it through. I know how I feel without having to do a deeper dive.

Victor: What happened to you lately has taken a toll on you, whether you like it or not. Two traumas — one, you find out that ashland locke bastard lied to you, is a total fraud. Number two, you almost got killed in an accident. What the hell are you talking about? You need time to process all this.

Victoria: I can handle it.

Victor: Why are you being so stubborn? Why don’t you let adam help you?

Victoria: My injuries are not that severe.

Victor: I’m not just talking about your physical maladies.

Victoria: As far as the emotional goes, yes, ashland hurt me, yes, he lied to me, but he’s out of my life now. End of story.

Victor: I happen to know that that son of a bitch has surreptitiously snuck into your office, playing on your emotions. I know he does. And he will continue to do so. And I’m not so sure if you’ve purged yourself of that bastard.

Victoria: Will you ever be able to give me full credit for being able to control my emotions? Your second guessing me is relentless, and I am done with it. If you choose adam, fine, he stays, but I go, and I will not look back.

Adam: Good to see you on your feet, victoria. Good for you. Gave us a real scare there.

Victoria: Thank you.

Adam: What did I miss?

Victoria: Dad will fill you in.

Victor: We have a problem, son.

Lily: Look, I despise what ashland did. And as a cancer survivor, i absolutely think that he should pay for the scam that he tried to pull. But we agreed that you were gonna let this go, because if you don’t, you’ll be fixated on it. And it’s gonna drive you crazy, and I do not want to watch you go down that same road again. So, please, I am asking you for the last time, please stop.

Kyle: [ Sighs ] There’s no easy way to say it, so I’ll just come out with it. My mom, she’S…alive.

Mariah: What?

Kyle: Diane is alive, and she’s here in genoa city.

Mariah: Okay. How? Why?

Kyle: She conspired to fake her death all those years ago to get a fresh start. She’s been living in los angeles rebuilding her life. She claims she’s changed.

Mariah: What is she doing in genoa city now?

Kyle: Trying to make amends.

Mariah: Amends?

[ Scoffs ] Amends — that’s, uh — that is —

Kyle: Insufficient?

Mariah: I mean, after all of your pain and all of those years, yes, absolutely yes.

Kyle: Yeah. She claims she was trying to protect me. She didn’t want to mess up my life.

Mariah: Thinking your mother is — is dead when she isn’t, there’s — there’s not much more messed up than that.

Kyle: I know, I know. She had a lot of explanations, and most of them were garbage, but some of them got to me. I mean, is it possible for someone to change that much?

Mariah: Uh…I don’t know. I would like to think so, obviously. I’m so sorry, kyle. I’m so sorry that this is happening to you. You don’t deserve it. And even if she has explanations, that doesn’t mean those are answers. And that’s what you need.

Kyle: After talking to her, I have a bunch more questions.

Mariah: So what does she want from you?

Kyle: Time to explain herself.

Mariah: With intention of a mother-son relationship? I mean, that’s a lot to ask.

Kyle: It is, which is why I’m drinking in the afternoon and i don’t know which way is up. New lash paradise mascara from l’oreal paris.

Adam: Let me guess — victoria has no interest in me staying on in a leadership role.

Victor: Let’s discuss that later, okay? Meanwhile, there’s something very urgent for us to discuss.

Adam: Well, what could possibly be more urgent than the future of newman?

Victor: Diane jenkins. She’s alive. She’s back in town.

Mariah: So what are you thinking? What do you want to do? How can I support you?

Kyle: I don’t know. My instinct is to say yes and welcome my mom back into my life. There are so many things i missed out on as a kid.

Mariah: I know. I get that. I bet this seems like a fairy tale, you know, getting this opportunity for a second chance.

Kyle: Exactly. I mean, you get it. My dad is nervous about the whole thing, but he’s worried I’m gonna get hurt. But how can I turn down an opportunity like this? We can forge a new relationship. It’s kind of like when I found out about harrison. Whole son I didn’t know I had.

Mariah: Yes, but it’s different. Harrison wasn’t pretending to be dead.

Kyle: I know, and I know fairy tales aren’t real, but this is everything I wished for as a kid. For my mom to be here again. And here she is. It’s amazing.

Mariah: Yes. But I’m just — I am afraid that you are setting yourself up to be hurt. Okay? Kyle, how can you trust her? How can you just let her walk back into your life? And why on earth would you let her anywhere near summer or harrison?

Diane: Jack, um…it’s me. I was hoping you’d pick up. In case you’re wondering, kyle’s reaction wasn’t what I was hoping for, but I guess it’s all I can expect right now. I did what I came to do, and i hope that there will be more in the future, but I guess there’s no guarantees. And that is why I am leaving for los angeles in the morning.
