[ Knock on door ] Brook lynn: Chase! Open up.

[ Knocking continues ] I know you’re in there. Come on. We’ve got a big d– a big what?

[ Clears throat ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Groans softly ] Remember me? I’m sorry. Who are you? I’m the pool man.

[ Giggles ]

[ Tense music plays ]

[ Handcuffs rattling ] Hi. My god, spencer, what happened? Dr. Finn. Nik, how can I help you? Well, you could start by minding your own damn business. Which is what I was doing before you stopped me. You went to my wife… whoa, whoa, whoa. …Behind my back and interfered with our private matters. That was a big mistake. And it will cost you. I hear you’re being discharged. Mm. Not a minute too soon. I’m grateful for the care I received here, of course, but I will be glad to leave. Then I will put a rush your paperwork and we’ll get you out of here. Oh, elizabeth. T-there’s something that you and I need to settle first. Morning, gregory. Morning, alexis. Have you slept at all? Why? [ Chuckles ] Do I look exhausted and bedraggled? We were at the invader till wee hours, so I was thinking maybe you’d slept in. Well, I-I knew you would be pulling a literal all-nighter doing the op-ed, so, uh, I came back here. Wanted to keep an eye on your friend. Nina: Hey. You — you okay? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, I’m fine. I just — I’m just worried about everybody else. Oh, yeah. Any word on diane? Oh, she’s at G.H. I’m gonna check on her later. Did you, uh… did you see the invader? Oh, yeah. I saw that. What do you think? Uh, well, alexis took a brave stand. Letting that psychopath know that port charles is not a community to be messed with. What do you think? Well, I think she — she better know what she’s doing because it seems like the attacker is targeting people who are connected to me. Yeah, and you and alexis have a daughter who happened to see the killer, you know, in action. So I’m sure you have eyes on both alexis and kristina. Yeah. How’s your bodyguard? Oh, uh, well… guess I’m getting used to it, you know? But I did feel safer last night having him there, so thank you. Yeah, yeah, hopefully it doesn’t last too long. Do you know who’s behind these attacks?

I have a confession to make. Okay. I’m not really your pool man.

[ Gasps ]

[ Sighs ] I knew it. How? I don’t have a pool.

[ Both laugh ] I want to remember all of this. Okay. Name three things. Uh, being in your bed. Okay. That’s one. Being in your bed with you. That’s two. These are very general. Um, closure. No. No, no, no. I mean it. Letting go of decades of bad decisions and missed opportunities with you. It’s okay. This is all I want to remember — you and me doing this. Always.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Do you mind if I just — it’s fine. Yeah. It’s fine.

[ Sighs ] What’s wrong? I’m worried about you, spence. You — you look like you haven’t eaten since you got here. Oh, this? This is the work of my fellow inmates who go out of their way to make sure that I never have the right size clothes. I had assurances you would be protected. And I am. Physically, anyway. Go on. On my second day here, I had a run-in with a guy who said that he wanted to rearrange my face. Fortunately, a guy arrived before he could do that, and that was the end of that. And what’s this — this business with the clothes? Well, the other inmates know that I’m a rich kid who’s under protection from important people whose cop “friend” got him a cushy job. So they find other ways to mess with me, like making sure that I never have a uniform that fits, stealing food and supplies that I buy from the commissary, threatening me with all manner of, uh [Clears throat] Horrible fates. I’m gonna speak with the warden. No! No, please don’T. That will only make things worse. If you were referring to me being with elizabeth when she told ava that you lied about your alibi — you had absolutely no right. You lying to your wife is none of my concern. By which I mean, I literally do not care. Nor should you. But I won’t let you take advantage of elizabeth. So find someone else to give you a fake alibi. No, I was giving both of us an alibi because elizabeth couldn’t account for her whereabouts when ava was attacked. I did what I did to protect her. You were covering your own ass! You giving elizabeth an alibi was just working in your favor. You know what? I don’t care what you believe, but do you have any idea of the amount of damage you could have caused by telling ava the truth? It’s like you don’t even care about elizabeth at all. I just wan t to thank youfor telling me the truth about nikolas’ so-called alibi. Mm. I know that he is one of your oldest friends and that could not have been easy. I should be grateful he gave me an alibi. Do you think that he would have done that if it hadn’t provided him with one, as well? The nikolas I grew up with would have done it in a heartbeat. And what about the nikolas as he is now? After you were attacked, everything was so uncertain, um, yeah, I did have my doubts about his motives. Well, don’t beat yourself up about that. Neither of us were sure about nikolas. Exactly. But we are now. Well, from what I read, the police are waiting for diane to make it through surgery to see if she can identify her attacker. But if you have learned something new… let’s just say I’m, you know — I’m just — I’m — I’m working on. Oh, okay. Frank told me that michael went to the pozzulo’s last night. What about it? Well [Scoffs] How did it go? Did you come to some kind of truce? Well, you know, uh, we just talked about what happened to brando. How’s sasha? Uh, fragile. And gladys? Oh, well, gladys is gladys. She’s in a lot of pain, but she’s enduring. I admire that in her. Yeah, she actually convinced sasha to start making funeral arrangements for brando, but unfortunately, sasha’s credit card was declined. How — how’s that possible? Because she’s not in control of her finances right now, and it’s still unclear who is. But if she’s having financial problems, I-I’m — I’ll do what I gotta do to help. I know. I know you will, but — but you don’t have to worry about this because I already put my credit card down for the deposit. But you do know that I’m gonna help her. I do. I do know that, okay? Okay. I’m here. Right now, I’m more concerned about her state of mind because she’s already carrying so much. And now with this guardianship, I just don’t want this to be the straw that breaks her. Sasha is going to be okay. Well, how do — how do you know that? Because she has you. How are you able to get updates if you’re not family? I have a secret weapon. Finn. Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] Diane’s still in surgery.

[ Exhales sharply ] Still? Finn says these things can take a while. I hope that’s all it is, because I need her to be okay. I know. And now I guess we just wait and see how our little op-ed pans out and if it brings the killer out into the light. Have you eaten? Mnh-mnh. Let’s get you some sustenance. And while we’re at it, uh, maybe we can track finn down and finagle another update. Lead the way.

[ Sighs ] Shoot. I really needed that caffeine. I’ll go make us some coffee. Oh, you can definitely make me some coffee. And I will definitely thank you for it. You, my friend, cannot have any caffeine. And why not? Because it’s murder on your vocal chords. Didn’t your vocal coach ever teach you that? And tonight, you need to be in peak form. Wait, are you saying I’m not in…peak form? Vocally. I knew what you meant.

[ Scoffs ] Look, we need to get you ready. Everything we’ve been working towards, it’s all riding on tonight. Right. Right. Peak form. Okay, good. It’s just — it’s really important that we…stay focused. Oh, I’m — I’m laser focused. Are you?

Bonjour. I miss you.

Je t’aime. She looks happy. Charlotte still has no idea she’s being used as leverage. She misses me. She can’t understand why we’ve been apart so long. You will see her again. Trust me. More than anyone. Damning me with faint praise. A little bit. Yeah. Yes. I trust you implicitly. Then believe me when I say we will bring charlotte home. Victor’s playing the long game. So far he’s winning. I didn’t say it would be easy. He’s a formidable opponent. And you’ve carried this alone for too long. But you have me now. And we’re changing the game. Together. You with me? The ends of the earth, darling. What’s the move? Well…unfortunately, the best way to get to victor is through lucy. Oh, she’s proven to be a wild card in every sense of the word. I know. The sooner we can find another way, the better. Any thoughts on what that might be? Mnh-mnh. But that’s okay. We’ll figure it out together. Now, spencer, as head of this family, it’s my duty to make sure you’re taken care of. Both you and uncle sonny have people in here looking out for me, but they can’t be around me 24/7. This place is like 15 times bigger than spring ridge, full of angry, violent people. The best thing that I can do is keep my head down and stay out of everyone’s way. And the best thing that you can do — is assassinate anyone who looks at you cross-eyed. I’m sure your uncle sonny would agree. In fact, protecting you is probably the only thing we do agree on. What part of “don’t” is unclear? Spencer, I can’t just sit back and watch you suffer at the hand of a bunch of convicts. You owe me. All right. All right. But if you change your mind — I won’T. How’s life in port charles?

[ Sighs ] How’s ava’s recovery? She gets discharged today. You can ask me about him, you know? Who? Your father. Finn: Let’s get one thing straight. Elizabeth’s her own person. She decided to tell ava that your alibi is a lie. She thought you might pose a danger to your wife, and she decided to err on the side of the truth. A concept you’re not familiar with, I know. You know, the only person in danger is elizabeth, because all of this turmoil started with you. You’re the reason that she’s so messed up. What did you say? Wait. Wait. Wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Say it again! Say it again! Whoa, whoa, whoa. Stop it! Whoa, whoa, whoa. Back to your corners. Geez. What are you doing? As long as there’s a lunatic running around with a hook, I don’t think I’ll be sure of much. At the risk of overstepping, at the quartermaine picnic, nikolas told me the two of you were having trouble. I’m under the assumption that you guys worked things out, but in case I’m wrong, can I say something? Yeah, of course. I’m sure you already know that nikolas has been through some really dark times growing up. He’s not an easy person. But he is capable of love and devotion. And honestly, I’ve only seen him in love one other time before he met you. Only you can decide what you’re willing to accept. And as for nikolas, it’s not always pretty, but it is love. Unwavering love. Oh, you know what? I have to get to the hospital because ava is getting discharged, and I want to make one last pitch for her to stay with me. Why aren’t they going to wyndemere? Well, she wants to go to wyndemere, but, you know, I’m worried that living with nikolas again so soon is gonna be too stressful for her. I know they’re having problems, but, you know, I j– I just wish that a– she would just kick him to the curb. Ava — nikolas is not a good person. Listen, it’s okay. Ava and nikolas have a very powerful connection. You call it powerful. I call it toxic. Well, their marriage is a lot more complicated than we know. Wish as much as you want, but I wouldn’t assume that they’re done. Nina, come on. You can’t tell me that they’re good for each other. A lot of people think that

we’re not good for each other. Stop it. Stop what? Being all sexy. Look, we — we need to stay focused on the plan. Sexy? You need to perform flawlessly tonight, okay? Right, right, the more successful I am, the more linc will want to sign me. And the angrier he’ll be with me, making him want to sign you even more. And then when we’ve got him exactly where we want him… I will fire you, sign with him, retire, and then leave him high and dry. Looking like the loser that he is. And then hopefully, uh, I can be a cop again someday. If they’ll have me. Oh, they will. You are the best guy who’s ever been on that force, okay? One day they’ll wise up to that. You think so? I know so. How? I just do. Time.

[ Sighs, giggles ] Look, as much

[Breathing heavily] As I want this… no. We — we want this. …You need to take all of this energy… so much good energy. …And just put it into the show. Huh? Yeah. And all the leftover energy will fill other arenas, okay? Hmm. No, no, no, no, no, no. Just — go get dressed, okay? And then… you’ll come back a-and we’ll talk strategy.

[ Exhales sharply ] Just go.

[ Exhales deeply ] Well, I’ll go get your paperwork. Hey, elizabeth. Are you all right? Nikolas mentioned to me that — that you blacked out the night that I was attacked, that you can’t remember where you were or what you were doing. Yeah. Sorry, I-I… probably should have told the police all that. No, I don’t blame you for anything. I’m just asking if you’re okay.

[ Sighs ] I just have way too much on my mind. This is a hospital, for pete’s sake. Oh, I know. I am on the board. Really? ‘Cause you’re acting like you’re on the playground. Come with me. Now! So that’s alexis’ nephew? Nikolas cassadine? Yeah. How could you tell? The overwhelming smell of jerk in the air? And he’s a-a friend of elizabeth’s? Well, the word friend might be a little subjective.

[ Exhales deeply ] I remember you said you didn’t think he had elizabeth’s best interests at heart. He’s only got his own best interests at heart. Okay, so why were you twogoing at it about elizabeth? Did he do something to her? Oh, it’s just — I don’t like him. Dad, I don’t trust him. But maybe in his own ultra privileged, narcissistic way, he does actually care about elizabeth. He said he was looking out for her. A-are you taking him at his word? For now. I would rather discuss literally anyone else. Like your stepmother? I didn’t know you cared so deeply about ava. I don’T. She’s the first person you asked about. Because she’s important to the people who I do care about. Like your father who you refuse to discuss? Like trina. Ah, I see. Speaking of trina, how is she? Well, I think you should probably ask your friends. I would if they’d visit. They haven’t? Mnh-mnh. You’re my first. I’m sorry. Why? What’d you do this time? No, I should have been here sooner. I — I got wrapped up in other time-sensitive matters. I’ll try to do better. Look, I brought this on myself. The only people left who care about me are you and maybe britt, my grandmother. Of course, she’s in italy. Still… nothing is more important to me, spencer, than family. If I’d only known what you’ve been going through. It’s not your fault. Let me make it up to you. I can get a message to trina if you’d like me to. Granted, our history — is nothing like nikolas and ava. Our cheering section is roughly the same size as theirs. I don’t care what people think. We’re good for each other. Well, you don’t have to convince me of that, handsome. Selina: Mr. Corinthos. Mm. Hey. Ms. Reeves. Hello, ms. Wu. Um, it’s nice to see you. Hi. I was so sorry to hear of your cousin’s passing. Thank you. And I understand you’re close to his widow. Uh, yeah. Uh, sasha and i are very close. Can’t imagine what that poor woman is going through, especially when her husband’s killer still roams free. If I can be of further assistance during these trying times, please let me know. Thank you. I will. In the meantime, I was wondering if I might see you at the savoy tonight. Perhaps you’ve heard. The young talent you mentioned to me is performing. Harrison chase. Well, actu– I was thinking about it, but… I, uh — sorry. Got to go.

[ Chuckles ] Uh, it’s a pleasure to see you. See you later. She’s quite lovely. Yeah, she is. And are you convinced you can keep her safe?

Diane miller is a formidable woman. Sonny: Yep. She is. I’m confident this isn’t how her story ends. I also know you have a guard watching nina. Yeah. I hope my supposition doesn’t offend you, but it would seem these attacks are related to you. That’s crossed my mind. And the police? It’s crossed theirs, too. It could be bad for business. And since we share a bottom line, my resources remain at your disposal. Thank you for your cooperation. Anything else? Just one more thing. In keeping you apprised per our arrangement, there’s a game scheduled for tonight. You know the place is gonna be crawling with friends of the pcpd. He was a cop. You know that, right? The concert provides my players with a convenient cover. And as an added benefit, they can watch the entertainment. Word of the game has spread, attracting even more influential players, raising the cost of the buy-in. Would you like a seat at the table? It’s an interesting offer, but I already get a cut of the door.

[ Chuckles ] You’d stand to gain so much more. From what I hear… yeah? …You’re quite a skilled player. Can I deal you in? Spencer: Thanks, but no. Come now, spencer. I don’t know if it’s pride or obstinance, but we both know trina is important to you. I never said that she wasn’T. Well, if you don’t want to reach out to her, then why bring her up? Because I read an article in the invader that there was another attack, this psycho with a hook, and I wanted to make sure that trina was okay. Well, you needn’t worry. The prevailing wisdom is that these attacks are related to your uncle sonny. Uncle sonny will take care and protect his family. I just wish I could help. No, you just — you just focus on helping yourself. And as for these gruesome attacks, well, there is some good news. Your father is no longera person of interest. Uncle victor, for the last time, I do not want to hear anything about my father. I told him that I was done with him and I meant it. If he’s capable of betraying me the way that he did, I don’t want anything to do with him. Oh, come on, spencer. Where is he? He hasn’t even tried to visit. I take it you want him to visit only so you can turn him away. Well, maybe he’s doing you a favor by skipping that part. Yes, I told him to stay away. But the man who I grew up with, the father who raised me, he wouldn’t have listen. I’ll talk to nikolas. No, don’t waste your breath. Thank you for visiting me. I should get going to the library. I don’t want to be late for my work detail. Very well. I’ll, uh — I’ll be back soon. Meantime, keep your chin up. And watch your back.

[ Receiver clicks ] May I remind you that my best friend is in the O.R. Fighting for her life?

[ Exhales deeply ] I’m genuinely sorry that I upset you, especially when you need to worry about diane. Has there — has there been any news? No, she’s still in surgery, and she’s gonna be in there for a while. Anything I can do to help?

[ Sighs, clears throat ] I don’t think that there — you could not brawl in the hospital, for starters. Done. Done. Anything else? I — there’s nothing anybody can do. You know, I saw — I saw the invader. Your op-ed on the united front in port charles. Too much? No. It was perfect. You’re showing this monster that we can’t be intimidated. Thank you. I needed that. Do you think he’s gonna answer up to the challenge? Well, we’re gonna find out soon enough. I hope that my instincts are right and that his ego is gonna be his downfall. Because if this doesn’t work… …I’ve poked the bear. And I’ve — I’ve set the bear onto this path of destruction that’s gonna put everybody in danger. So, how is elizabeth doing? Good. Good. All things considered, I think she’s — she’s making a lot of progress. Well, I’m glad to hear it. Yeah.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh. Hey, I’m sorry, dad. Gotta go check on a patient. Go. Save lives. Yeah. Are you gonna be at chase’s show tonight? Yeah. No, of course. I’m — I’m coming with elizabeth. And we’re bringing terry. Oh, wa– he’s gonna be great. But, you know, if he bombs, it’s okay if I tease him a little, right?

[ Elevator bell dings ]

[ Laughs ] Always a supportive brother, aren’t you? Always. Ha! Chase: Brook lynn?

[ Sighs deeply ] Whoa, whoa, whoa. What — what’s all this? Do you know how much hidden sugar is in your food? I know how much I spent on it, regardless of what’s in it. Well, that’s beside the point. You’re throwing out my oranges? Well, do you want to pepper-spray your vocal chords? Citrus is too acidic. I take it you threw out my peppers. I-I mentioned them for a reason. Nothing spicy. Come on! Yogurt? Uh, dairy? Eggs? I-I said no dairy. Eggs aren’t dairy. Well, they’re in the dairy section. Oh, come on! My soy milk? Oh, don’t even get me started on soy milk with singers. The phlegm. So this bag basically contains everything that’s in my kitchen? You know what? You are right. There is nothing in this house for you to eat. I got to stop by deception, and then I will treat you to breakfast. Are you coming or not?

[ Sighs ] I considered bugging victor’s room, but he takes extensive precautions. Yeah. He would have found it immediately. I wouldn’t have learned anything, and charlotte would have been put at greater danger. Hmm. We need him to lower his guard. Well, he’s hardly gonna do that with either of us, is he? We need someone he won’t see coming. Hi. Anna. Valentin. I didn’t know you two made it official. Yeah. Would it kill you to act a little jealous? Oh, fine. Okay, um… get your hands off my man! No. Listen, I’m glad I ran into you, because I’ve really been thinking a lot about charlotte. Oh, that’s funny. I just, uh, heard from her this morning. Oh! Look how growing up she is! Oh!I can hardly believe it myself. I know she’s really busy with her fancy school and all of her friends, but I miss her. I miss you, too. Next time you talk to her, will you tell her to give me a ring? I will. Congratulations, nina, on being the new co-owner here. Oh! Yeah. It’s an adventure.

[ Chuckles ] Well, it suits you. You look, uh, happy. You look happy, too. An– you — both of you. Oh. Thank you. Uh, I need to go. O-okay. Bye. Bye. It was really nice to see. You, too. I think she’s the answer.

It’s an interesting offer, but I think with everything that’s going on, I’m not gonna be able to make that game. A seat is always available to you, regardless. Mr. Chase. I’m looking forward to hearing you sing tonight. I heard — I heard about your gig. Congratulations. Thank you. Is, uh — is nina around? I was hoping to thank her. Uh, for what? For putting in a word with curtis about getting me an audition at the savoy. By she, I hope that you’re referring to lucy and not nina. Lucy’s already got an assignment. Nina’s the one. She can help us get to victor. How did things go with ava? Did you figure out what to do for her? “I, nikolas ca ssadine,of sound mind and body…” yeah, that’s debatable. Keep reading. “…Do hereby acknowledge and confess that I, and I alone, am resp…onsible for the disappearance of esme prince. I know this… because I killed her.” I took your advice. I gave ava total and complete power over me. That’s not what I said. That wasn’t my advice. How — how did “take a risk, show her how much you care about her” turn into “I’m turning over all my power to her”? No, I-it was the right thing. Honestly, it was the only thing I could do. Well, w-wha– never mind. I don’t want to know. Don’t need to know. Hope it works. Well, I am on my way to find out. Good luck. You’re gonna need it. It never hurts with ava. Mm-hmm. Oh, look, there’s my cue. Uncle victor. What brings you by? Oh, ava, of course. She is family. I’m here to support the both of you. And your son. My son’s not here. I know. I just came from visiting spencer. You did? How is he? A visit from his father would do him a world of good. Ah, spencer made it very clear he doesn’t want to see me. Nikolas, it’s time you stepped up as a father. Your son needs you now more than ever. Whoa there. Oh, hi. Sorry. I-I — sorry. I was, um — somewhere else? Yeah, between work and everything else, I just — I have a lot going on in my mind. I understand. Um, elizabeth… I know you’ve been going through a rough time lately. Finn h-hasn’t told me any of the details or betrayed your confidence. But, uh, I know he cares about you a great deal. Well, I care about him, too. Gregory. I need your help. I’m here to spring ya. Oh, thank god. You know, I really need a long, hot bath and a big, strong drink. Both of which you can get at my place. Come on, ava. I know you can go wherever you want to from here, okay? But listen, I know you believe that you can coexist with nicholas at wyndemere. But I’m worried that it’s going to be more challenging than you think. Yeah. Well, things are definitely still less than ideal. But I hate the idea that I’m being thrown out of my own house. I didn’t do anything wrong. I didn’t screw up. That is right. And I would be more than happy to put you up at my place for however long you need. Nikolas: That won’t be necessary. Ava and I will be going home together.

[ Dramatic music plays ] What the hell? That was long overdue.

You remember at the pool? Nina said she was gonna talk to curtis about booking me at the savoy and then the two of you left I-I thought to go talk to him. No, no, we — we — we went to the savoy. But I don’t think nina got a chance to talk to curtis. Well, maybe she spoke with him later? I don’t think so, because, uh, I think she would have told me if she asked curtis to book you. Well, if nina didn’t talk to curtis, how did my gig get arranged? Selina: Has curtis given you any trouble? Nah, just a misunderstanding. I, uh — I ran into a singer — harrison chase. You heard of him? The detective on suspension. Yeah. Uh, good singer, good guy. I thought he’d be a good fit for the savoy. I appreciate you thinking of us and making the connection. I’m sure curtis will, too. I’m hoping you can answer a question. Absolutely. I’d be happy to. How well did you know finn’s wife, reiko? Hey! Just who I was looking for. I have news about diane. I can tell you right now that I have no intention of including another civilian in this. I’m not gonna put nina in harm’s way. But she can help us without being put at risk. So what are you thinking? To save charlotte, we need access. Nina could be the key. I’ve made all the arrangements, every comfort and amenity. It awaits you at wyndemere. Shall we? No. I’m not going with you. Wyndemere is you’re home, and you shouldn’t be driven away because of what I did. Well, I have no intention of giving up my claim to wyndemere. I’m just — I’m not ready to live under the same roof as you. Yet. But I thought after everything we discussed, we — I know. We’re just not there yet. Oh. Perfect timing. I am ready to go home. I thought you just said that — my old home. My first home in port charles, where I felt safe before I got mixed up with you. That is, if your offer still stands? It certainly does. Then let’s go. Pick it up. I’ll get it later. Pick it up. I — dude, you dropped it. You pick it up. I said pick it up! Ah!

Katie, are you, uh, I awake. Oh, yes, I’m awake. I’m wide, wide awake,

cause of salt leaving the hospital and coming here. I feel better. Well, I think this might help.

I’m Fred. She’s the same, but thanks for checking in. Right. I’ll let you know. Oh, so you’ll let them know, but not your daughter, Stephanie. So mom is so sick. She’s been admitted to the hospital, but God forbid I should hear about it from you. I’m sorry, baby. I, I just didn’t wanna worry you, Dad. I am not a child.

My God. I had to hear about this from Eric who thought I already knew. And not only is Mom seriously ill, but so are Marlena and Kate. Yeah. Are they going to.

Right now, baby, we just don’t know.

Well, you know what the scorecard is? We whip the devil again. Thank you. But now we’re up against another force of darkness, Orpheus.

Lord Doc Kate K. They really need your help right now, so please just give them the strength to fight this.


checked on my Lena, Eric Beller with her, and I told me that you were here. How is she? She’s asleep. I have. You know, I sat up with her all night trying to find a way to make her comfortable. I couldn’t do it,

and that the woman I love is suffering and help her son’s.

So pray.

That time. Uh, hi, uh, Stephan. Um, what are you doing here? I, I told you that I’m. Brady. Now, why would you stop by for no reason? I have a reason I came here to wish you happy birthday.

God, that could have been a disaster. Oh, relax. Relax. Do you have any idea how rare this is? Have I never been able to replace it? And this is perhaps my most important project ever. Well, I have a new project for you, Ralph, so you’re gonna have to put that one on hold and get on mine right away. Those have your urgent requests.

What is it this time, Kristen? Well, I don’t know the technical term for it, but I need you to fry Chloe’s brain

like Sands through the hour class. So are the days of our lives.

I’m sorry baby. I was gonna tell you Yeah, when, as soon as we had a better idea of what we’re dealing with, we’re waiting for some test results from the ISA medical lab. The first round was inconclusive, so they have to run everything again. And you didn’t think I’d wanna know all. This is just like when Mom and Marlina were kidnapped.

Well, I explained to you why I had to keep you in the dark about that, right? Because Oria said he would kill them if you told anyone. So what’s your excuse this time? Like I said, I wanted to wait until, Until you had more information, which clearly you still don’t have. We do know one thing or fierce is behind this too.

I just talked to a woman, Kate and Kayla, they’re, uh, they’re failing just like doc fevers getting worse. So is the fatigue that. Maybe, maybe the medication give, give them some relief. At least to, he’s not doing anything. What we need is a cure, and there’s no way we’re gonna find a cure unless we can figure out exactly what that cycle into.

What about the ISA didn’t, Wasn’t the ISA runs some blood work, Steve said. They’re totally baffled too. I mean, these are experts. Totally stopped. Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa. We’re just gonna rerun these tests again and we’re gonna see if maybe we missed something the first time. In the meantime, all we can do is just sit here and wait.

I came as soon as I heard you called him. Of course I did. You should really be in the hospital right now, honey. What’s the point? There’s nothing that they can do for me. What? Don’t say that. What’s the truth? Okay, so that’s really why I wish that you haven’t come. Well, it’s too bad I’m here. Don’t watch mine.

To watch me die? No. To watch you get better. We’re gonna figure out what is making you sick and we’re gonna find a cure. And I’m gonna be by your side until we do

today is your birthday right? Ah S Stephan, listen, you know, I remember the first time I found out that you were a Libra. I thought to myself, classic Libra, she’s intelligent, kind, caring, often, thinks so much about others, that she commonly neglects herself yourself. These are for you, by the way, some of your favorites, if I remember correctly.

Yeah, that that’s right. Thank you.

So any special plans for the night? Anyone throwing you a party? No. No. No plans. No party. Why not? Don’t tell me no one remembered your birthday. Actually no one did. Huh?

Only me, huh? Yeah, only you.

I don’t know what you’ve been told Kristen, but I do not. Fry brains. Ooh. But Chloe is so small, it won’t be too challenging. Please go. I’m very busy. Okay. You don’t understand. I can’t let her get away with what happened. You don’t need me. You need a lawyer? No, no, no, no, no. See, I represented myself at the custody hearing and I was fantastic, Ralph.

Yeah. I mean, I was so close to victory, I could just taste it and then all of a sudden the judge ruled against me. I’m sure she had her reasons. Yeah. The reason was Chloe in right before the decision came down, I saw Chloe skulking around the courthouse, and I don’t know what the hell she did. But she definitely pulled something and now I have lost my daughter.

I wish I could help you. You’re going to help me, bro. See together we are gonna stop that home wrecking floor once and for all.

So all the people you love forgot your birthday, huh? Okay. Can we just drop the subject of my. It, it’s fine that no one remembered. It’s totally understandable. Hmm. You’re awfully forgiving. Well, there’s nothing to forgive. My father just went through a divorce and a horrible breakup, and my mother almost married a murderer, so she’s obviously a mess.

I heard about that. I’m so sorry. Yeah. Well, at least she found out about Clyde West and before their wedding, and it’s just, I can’t believe what he did to Abigail and to Sunny. It’s just, it’s horrific. The fact that he tried to kill Chad too. Well, thank God DJ shot him, saved my brother’s life. Clyde survived.

Unfortunately, I don’t know if would’ve mattered to my mother either way, but the point is she’s got so much going on right now. She doesn’t know what day it is, or it’s my birthday and my God too. And my little sister has never remembered my birthday, so that’s no surprise. Well, all of that makes sense.

It’s understand. But what’s Brady’s excuse?

I’ve just been so wrapped up on everything that’s happened with Doc here. I didn’t ask you about the custody hearing or apologize for how I lost her on the stand of, Hey, so Dad. Dad, don’t worry about it. case is closed. It is. It is closed. And your son won? I still have custody. Oh wait, that’s, Oh, that’s great.

You know, that’s wonderful news. I’m so glad it went your way. Yeah, actually, actually, I have Chloe to thank, She, she went to bat for me, but the judge and made all the difference in the world. God bless her heart. Yeah. Listen Kid, I, I want to know, and I’m sure you already knew the doc and I, we are just, we are so happy that you and Glue you were back together again.

So my, so

of course we’re gonna find a cure for whatever this is. I know you believe that when you check yourself out of the hospital. I wish I still felt that way. It’s. Just what, sweetheart? It’s hard to be optimistic when you just keep on feeling worse and worse. You know, I, I don’t see how they can find a cure when they don’t know it’s even wrong.

This, but, but they will. Okay. They’re on it and so am I. You. Yes, God, show me your labs. And he gave me all the information that the ISA and the doctors have, and I forwarded over all of it. And look, I have to confer with the other doctors, but I’m pretty sure that what’s causing you to be sick is not a naturally occurring pathogen.

Wait a minute. So you’re saying you think this could be manmade by or is? Mm-hmm. . Now look, I could be proven wrong, but right now, I think Orias created this in a lab.

All you have to do is kidnap Chloe and bring her here. And then you zap her nauseating love for Brady right out of her pee brain and strengthen her love and feelings for Stephan out to the Christian. Damn it. You, you, you did it with Stephan. You wiped out his love for Gabby and you pumped up his, his feelings for Chloe.

I’m just simply asking you to make it reciprocal.

God, six rough, get on it. You know what? This is gonna take some time, so you need to get this started. Now here what I just said out of the question.

Oh, mom, I’m so sorry I wasn’t here sooner. Oh, baby Don. It’s okay. I I didn’t want your father to worry you. And actually, I, I was just gonna go check on Marlena. No, no, no. She, She’s my friend and I, I, I, you know my job. I need to Well, no mom. Your only job is to take care of yourself, Baby. Listen, listen. Marla is getting top, not care from Dr.

Patel. Okay. Now I can go talk to him right now. If that’ll make you feel better, will that make you feel better? Yeah, yeah, yeah, please. You will make sure she doesn’t try to make a run for it. I will make sure. You stay right here.

Look, Brady, forgetting my birthdates. The same reason my parents did. He has so much going on right now. In fact, he’s at the hospital at the moment with his father because Marlena’s very sick. I’m so sorry. I didn’t know. Yeah, and you probably didn’t know that he went through a brutal custody battle with your sister.

And thank God it’s over now. But it was very stressful for him. So C one, no she didn’t, but the whole fight just took a terrible toll on him, and now his stepmother has some horrible disease. Wow. Well, I will definitely be praying for her. She’s always been very kind to me, which is especially generous because I have not been kind to her.

I’m assuming you’re talking about locking her up in the secret room. I am not mine. Finest moment and I deeply regret it. Look, Stephan, no minute, Say no more. You have made it abundantly clear that you are in love with Brady, so I’m not gonna push. So no more surprise visits, no more pop-ins, and I apologize if I made you feel uncomfortable.

It’s, it’s not that I’m sure that you’re uncomfortable as well. I’m sure it’s not easy coming back after four years. I do feel for you. Yeah. It is not the same way I feel about you, and that’s okay. I have to get over it and I will eventually. In the meantime, Chloe, I’m hoping we can still be friends.

Have you forgotten that the two of us were recently pardoned? Of course not. But I’m the one who got you the damn pardon. And I am grateful, but I do not want to return to prison. I’ve already put my freedom at risk by conditioning Stephanie. Okay? No one knows about that. All they know is that you kept my brother alive for four years and brought him back with a new heart, and you are solidly in the Damaris, good graces.

And I would like to stay that. So from now on, I will play by the rules. I strongly advise you do the same. So in other words, sit back and let Chloe steal my life. If you kidnap her, they’ll send you back to Statesville, please. The cops in this town are too stupid to catch me, son. You’ll end up on the run just as you did before, and you’ll never see Rachel again.

Brady won’t let me see her. Because that manipulative girlfriend convinced him to cut me out of the picture that I’m not gonna stand for that Ralph. Mark my words. I will have my family back. I know how determined you are. Kristin. But I am equally determined to hold onto my freedom. So if you want to keep that mis lane and Brainwasher, you’ll have to do it without me.

Do you think Orpheus has access to a lab? Well, I don’t know why he wouldn’t. I mean, he has resources all over the world. Yeah. , he would probably have to be local to manage this. Well, you know what he and Ralph were? Pardon? On the same day. You think that crazy bastard is involved in this? Hey, he and Orff is teamed up before, huh?

Well, Ralph is known to engineer things like say twins. His most phenomenal achievement. You no doubt this reminds me of is when you were sick in South America. That was 25 years ago. I know, I know it. It’d be really bizarre coincidence, but I’m wondering if Mom and Kayla could have the exact same illness

town, please be reason. I have done enough for you already. Now, I beg you, leave me to my work. Expensive, isn’t it? Everything that you do here, uh, I’m guessing an infusion of cash to fund those grand ambitions of yours would be really. See you helped me with Chloe, and I’ll make it with you while you’re wasting your time, Kristin and mine.

But just think about what you can do with all that money. I mean, you’re already making incredible strides with your studies conditioning. You don’t want that to stop, do you? I have no intention of stopping. But I will not make Chloe Lane a subject, Janet rules. Now, how does it occur to you that, uh, maybe you’re dishonoring my father’s memory by being so ol with refusing to help me?

I mean, he would be appalled Ralph or. Perhaps he would respect that. I have far more important things to deal with than your love life, such as if you must know obvious broke in here and stole it. Toxin. So what? He’s back behind bars. It’s not like he can do anything with it. So that’s for your own Kristin, He already has,

I can’t believe Orfe did this. Dad warned me that he was a serious threat and stupid me. I accused him of being overprotective. Sorry. Should I find energy? Nope. Can’t help me. But having you here, that’s really lifting my spirits. You’re all I need. What about Joey and Trip right about them. We need to call them and let them know what’s going on.

No, not now. Mm-hmm. Mom, I know you don’t want them to worry. No, I don’t want your brothers jumping on a plane. They will as soon as they find out you’re in the hospital and no way you can stop them. But you could me. What do you mean you’re in pr? You could put a positive spin on this.

Hey man, Dave. So we just wanna wait to see Dr. Patel. Oh, I just talked to him. What’s the word? Oh, there’s no change. He said all they can do now is continue to treat the symptoms. Oh, come on then. Give us a break. Look, we just have to hope that the ISA will come through with some answers. Yeah, well I think I’m gonna go on down to the cop shop there and see what I can, I already tried that.

No. Hey, I went down there yesterday. I almost killed. What happened? Let me push my buttons until I lost it. If you go down there now, same thing will happen. It won’t help, man. Come on. We need something to go on. I have a feeling that someone is gonna crack this thing wide open real soon. Sir, you’re saying that CAS could have the same disease I.

All those years ago. Gosh. Just a hunt. But I think it’s worth exploring. Yeah. I mean, the circumstances couldn’t have been more different. I was undercover with the ISA on another continent. Yeah. And you were exposed to an extremely rare toxin causing a deadly infection. I think possibly the one we’re seeing today.

I mean, I, It does make a strange kind of sense, you know how so? Well, Orpheus’s vendetta began with you. I mean, he blames you for his wife’s. Targeted Steven John, but still he really seems to want you front and center. Well, he did seem to single me out when he stole into the pub after his burden. Yeah. You know, in his sick, twisted head using the same illness to kill the women that you love.

I mean, that would be poetic justice. So what do we do? Here’s what I wanna do. I wanna take a look at your medical records from back then, and I wanna compare them to moms and Marlena’s and Kayla’s. I still have privilege at the hospital. I just need to log into a computer, but I need your permission. You got it all.

I’m gonna head out, Mom. We’re gonna figure this out and you’re gonna be curative, whatever the hell this is. Okay? I love you. I love you. Bye pop. Bye. See you guys. Great.

Trust me. If I thought you needed to come, I would’ve booked your tickets by now, but it’s not necessary. Hold on. Joey wants to talk to, you

know what? One of mom’s doctors just walked in will call you right back. Yes. I promise.

Wow. Now I know why they pay you the big bucks. I can’t put them off forever. I know you hate lying to them and I do too, but I, It’s okay, mom,

but why didn’t you wanna talk to Joey? Because I don’t feel well, and I, he would hear in my voice and I, I just feel like I need to be strong for him and for your dad and I, Well, you don’t have to be strong for.

Hey Rex. Hey John. Howle, Steve. That’s good to see you. I wish you was under better circumstances. Look, I came down here cuz I have a hunch about what’s going on with my mom and Kayla and Marla. I just need to jump on a computer and take a look at some old medical records. I’m sure Kayla wouldn’t mind you using her office.

Thank you as much time as you need. I I do appreciate that. I’m not gonna be long cuz I know what I’m looking for. Anything that we can do, let’s stick around is my hunch is correct. I might nature. So you are saying that Orpheus stole this toxin and then used it to make these three women sick. Very sick.

So that’s what John meant, that the hearing when he said that Marla could be dying, I mean, is it really that bad? You of all people should not be surprised. It’s a severity of their illness. You’ve seen it. When it almost killed Roman Brady. Wait, you’re saying that these women have the same illness that Roman did 25 years ago?

That is precisely what I am saying, and if anything happens to them, I could be blamed since obvious stoles a toxin from me. Now you understand why I don’t have time for your ridiculous obsession with Chloe Lane.

I can still give you your birthday gifts, right? As a friend, Of course, Huh?

Oh, wow. Well, it’s very thoughtful of you. Thank you. You are very welcome. Should we have a toast? Isn’t it? A little bit early for champagne? Ah, I was anticipating that. So how does a mimosa sound? I know that actually does sound kind of good. Uhhuh. Uh, I think I have some champagne flute somewhere around here.


Ah, here they are. I haven’t used these in a while. Now. This is good. A time as ever. Right. Oh.

Hey, but any luck, these will be done before Capricorn season. Okay, well just make mine mostly oj. Okay. I’ll do just that

mostly oj thank you.

Mostly champagne,

Okay. All champagne. Toast. Two,

the most extraordinary woman I’ve ever met.

Hell’s going on here? Wow, Brady. After so much time, I would expect something more to the tune of Stephan. Great to see you. How amazing you’re alive. It’s amazing. It is amazing that you’re alive and I’m, I’m, I’m glad to see I’m not so glad seeing you sitting here with my girl drinking whatever you’re drinking.

Um, Mim Brady. It’s okay. Stephan knows that you and I are in a committed relationship and we were just establishing that we are friends. Yes. And I came by to wish my friend I happy birthday. We sure have. It’s your birthday, everything that’s been going on. I’ve, Chloe, I forgot it’s your it’s birthday. It’s so, it’s okay.

You know, I don’t like anyone making a big deal of No, it is a big deal. And I’m sorry. And we will do something fun tonight. We’re gonna do something. Okay? Sure. So Brady, I’d um, ask you to join us in a toast, but you still not drinking, Still not drinking. How about some orange juice? No, thanks. You know what I would like, I would love to get some alone time with my beautiful girl here, if that’s okay.

Yeah, sure. I’ll get outta your hair. Happy birthday, Chloe. And, uh, I’ll bus you sometimes soon.

That’s good.

So far no one knows I was in possession of that toxin, but if it were ever traced back to me, I’d be in a world of trouble. What the hell were you doing with it? Anyway, preserving it for research purposes. I never meant to hurt anyone, but you did. Rachel’s grandmother, and if anything happens, I mean Rachel would be devastated.

You saved Roman months. My father instructed you to come up with a cure.

We’re still in prison. He, he offered to trades a cure for his freedom. . Well, I remember when we brought John in hope to the lab and my father set up for you. He introduced me as a world or now scientist doing research as us could only dream up . Oh, he had me working on many projects that only his brilliant mind could conceive.

The top priority was the cure for Roman when you arrived. I had not yet perfected it. But you did. You cured this disease once before.

Can you do it again, Ralph?

Okay. You see, these are my dad’s lab results from back. Very similar to your wives and my moms, including the progression of the disease and the fact that it’s not contagious. Okay, well, what about the symptoms? Well, the symptoms that the women are experiencing are slightly different. And that you think we might be dealing with the same thing.

All I can tell you is that Orpheus infected Marlena and Kayla and Kate with a very rare toxin. I think the best way to treat this illness is the same way that we treated my dad’s and pray that it cheers them.

Making progress, father taking it one step at a time. The slow and steady wins the race, right, and make no mistake. I will win. He like you. Whenever I want something, I go after it with a vengeance

and I, Chloe Lane and I will not stop until she’s mine.

So the guy just showed up? He didn’t even call? No, he just showed up and said he wanted to wish me a happy birthday, Huh? Well, I’m sure he was very happy that I wasn’t here. And even happier knowing that I forgot you are birth threat. It’s okay. Don’t worry about it. All right. You have so much going on.

How’s Marlena doing? It’s not. My symptoms are getting worse. So Kate or Kayla, and if they don’t find a cure, Chloe, I don’t know. I mean, I don’t, I don’t,

I have such clear memories of you giving me ice chips when I had my tonsils out , and then we moved on to Orange Sherbert, which is still my. Of course we call it so bay. Now. Remember what else he used to do for me when I was sick neck. That’s right. Well, now I’m gonna do that for you. Just scooch over a little

that feels. To me too, a rare opportunity for me to take care of you.

I love you mom so much.

Just got a text from Rex. He’s into the hospital system. You know what? Our son is so smart, He’s so determined, and he loves you so much. Look, I have total confidence that he’s gonna be able to help you, I think. I hope so. I don’t know how much longer I can hold time. Katie, listen to man. Why don’t you give up?

Okay. Don’t you give, You gotta hang on for your kids for me. All right? Don’t you even think about giving up. I love you way too much to let you do that. So listen to me. Do not give up. Hang on, please. I.

I look exhausted. I have been working around the clock working on what? Roll. Please tell me I’ll do better than that. I’ll show you.

Saving Roman was, um, a bit more complicated than just filling a prescription by walking down to the corner pharmacy. That’s right. You, you went to the jungle. Right? That’s a fact. That’s exactly what hoping I did, and it was pure hell. But we got what we needed because we found that very rare orchid. And from it Ralph made the serum.

To secure. So what we need to do is get our hands on one of those orchids.

What is that? It is the key to bringing three women from the Bri of Death, Kate Roberts, Kayla Johnson, and ELNs. This can save their lives.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Walter: If anyone finds out that I played this recording for you… I could lose everything, okay? The contract that I have with the organization, I would be totally finished. You have to understand my–

Thomas: Walter, we appreciate it. And trust me, no one is ever going to find out, right, dad? Dad?

Ridge: Yeah, no one’s gonna find out. I can’t believe it was brooke.

Thomas: It’s obviously her, her voice, and she even said her name. Your wife called child protective services on me. She’s trying to take away my son.

Liam: Oh, boy. Just wait ’til hope finds out about this. Or does she already know?

Brooke: Oh, I don’t know. Not from me. She’s probably over at eric’s hearing all about it.

Liam: Well, yeah. She’s been spending a lot of time over there lately, with douglas and, of course, thomas.

Brooke: Right. Something neither of us is very thrilled about.

Liam: I mean, I get why it’s important for hope to know that douglas is okay. And she does. She always comes home saying that he’s having the best time. Which is why I don’t really understand– like, okay, like you and I, we have our issues with thomas, especially with this whole knife thing. But to think that somebody actually called C.P.S. On him.

Steffy: You and dad are meant to be. There’s a reason why you’ve never moved on. You never made it work with anybody else. Because dad is the one. He’s the only one.

Taylor: But that loyalty’s a bit one sided, don’t you think? He’s always going to be torn between me and brooke.

Steffy: That was dad a long time ago. He was talking about moving on, growing, being better. That’s not achievable with brooke. She makes him miserable. It’s one disappointment after the next. I see him with you, so much contentment in his eyes, it’s clear he loves you, mom. Don’t give up.

Taylor: You know, when you argue with reality, you lose… 100% of the time.

Steffy: Uh-huh.

Taylor: No, your dad is married to brooke. I cannot argue with that. That is reality. I’m not the homewrecker here.

Steffy: How many homes has she wrecked?

Taylor: Okay, that is brooke’s karma, not mine. Do I need to pull out my “two wrongs don’t make a right” speech? ‘Cause I will.

Steffy: Mom, I love you so much.

Taylor: Mm-hmm.

Steffy: You’re, like, so pretty. But sometimes I just wish–

Taylor: No, no more “sometimes…” when it comes to compromising my integrity.

Steffy: I understand that, I totally get that. I love your goodness, I really do. But, like, I know there’s a fire deep down inside… you just gotta, like, ignite it, and fight for dad. Don’t let brooke win again.

Liam: Do you think there’s more going on here? Like, whoever reported thomas actually knows something we don’t?

Brooke: Uh, it’s possible. But C.P.S. Didn’t find anything wrong. And ridge said that they did the check, and it went well, and they’re not taking any action.

Liam: Selfishly, I admit, I mean, there’s a part of me that wouldn’t hate it if somebody came in and basically told thomas, “listen, you’re not providing the safe environment you’re supposed to be as a father.” And maybe, maybe that would, like, shock him out of this whole full custody thing.

Brooke: Yes, that crossed my mind.

Liam: The truth is, in reality, that would be obviously terrible ’cause it would mean the situation over there is, in fact, dangerous enough that somebody had to step in for douglas’s sake. And so, I guess… yeah, no, I guess it’s, um, it’s a relief to know that whoever made that call was probably wrong.

Brooke: Wrong or not, thomas shouldn’t have douglas all the time.

Liam: Oh, yeah, no, no argument there. I mean, the kid needs to come home.

Brooke: He does. He needs to come back home to you, beth and hope. And away from thomas.

Ridge: Play it again.

Walter: Ridge–

Ridge: I need to be sure

Thomas: Dad, it was obviously–

Ridge: I– just, play it one more time, please.

Walter: Promise me you won’t say anything to anyone.

Receiver: Child protective


Brooke: Hello.

I’d like to report

a child in danger.

His name is douglas forrester,

he’s at 369 willow hill road,

los angeles.

Please get there

as soon as possible.

His father,

thomas forrester, is unstable.

He has a knife.

Receiver: And your name,


Brooke: Brooke logan.

Please hurry.

Thomas: I, uh, I appreciate you doing that for us.

Walter: Wouldn’t do it for anyone else. But just, please, please…

Thomas: No, no, no, no. Between us, promise.

Walter: Thank you. Well, I’ll– I’ll let you process this. It’s good seeing you both. Wish it was under better circumstances.

Thomas: Yeah, me too.

Walter: Will your father be okay?

Thomas: Yeah, I’m sure that was just, uh, hard for him to hear. Appreciate it.

Walter: You got it.

Thomas: I’m sorry, dad. Did you know if you turn to cold with tide

Liam: We had such a good system going, you know, it was working. We had a routine.

Brooke: Yes, something kids need. And you and hope let thomas be a part of it. He spent a lot of time with douglas. I don’t know why he would want to disrupt that.

Liam: Well, I can’t think of a reason, to have access to hope. I mean, because it puts her in this awkward position, right? Where if she wants to spend any time with her son, she has to go over there and spend time with him. It’s kind of messed up, if you think about it.

Brooke: Yeah, that is messed up.

Liam: I mean, I– I’m trying to take hope’s word for it, when she says she’s got her eyes wide open, but also just based on her choices, it’s really hard to believe that hope… that she sees thomas for who he really is.

Brooke: I don’t think she does. And I definitely don’t think ridge does, or taylor, for that matter. I mean, she’s had a few conversations with her son and she thinks that he’s fixed. Come on. I think this is all because of taylor. You know, she came into town and she started fanning the flames, and she put this idea in thomas’s head that he wasn’t spending enough time with his son, and voila. It’s not about douglas at all. This is about taylor coming together with ridge. She just wanted to get ridge back. All she’s doing is trying to drive a wedge between ridge and me.

Taylor: I don’t want to have to fight for a life with your father, I shouldn’t have to fight. It’s time someone fought for me.

Steffy: I get that. But how is dad supposed to fight for you if you aren’t even here?

Taylor: Are you rescinding the aspen offer? ‘Cause that’s what it sounds like–

Steffy: Absolutely not, we are definitely going. I could, possibly, invite dad.

Taylor: Please don’T.

Steffy: I think you would have amazing memories.

Taylor: Okay, we have so many memories. Lots and lots of memories. See, the problem is, is that I got sucked into the idea of making more memories with him.

Steffy: There was a genuine connection between you two, when you got back to L.A.

Taylor: Yes. And that connection is the problem. That’s why I have to back away from ridge. I– I have to. He’s married to brooke.

Ridge: This doesn’t make sense.

Thomas: Well, yes and no. I mean, no, it doesn’t make any sense why brooke would do something like that, so hurtful to our family. It’s a huge slap in your face. I don’t see why anyone would do that to their husband. But, at the same time, I mean, she did say that she would do it. She said she’d call C.P.S. If she had to.

Ridge: She didn’t have to. She didn’t have to. Douglas is safe here, he’s always been safe. And I asked her. And you– you heard her, she denied it.

Thomas: She lied.

Ridge: I told her I would intervene, if there was ever a problem, I would be there, I would fix it, it would be okay. So, she wouldn’t, she wouldn’t have done that, she– she would have, she would’ve–

Thomas: You heard her, dad. We both did.

Ridge: She wouldn’t lie to me. She wouldn’t lie to me. Hi, I’m nancy.

Steffy: Sure, dad always ends up with brooke, until he doesn’t–

Taylor: Oh steffy…

Steffy: There’s gonna be a day when dad’s had enough, and I promise you, mom, that day is coming.

Steffy: I promise you.

Taylor: Do you know how many times I have told myself that? That this is certainly gonna be the day that ridge decides he wants more for himself.

Steffy: I know this is hard, and I know that you’re hurting.

Taylor: Yes, hurting, frustrated. And steffy, that is all on me. I’ve been a willing participant

Steffy: No, you know that dad loves you. He said it, he shows you.

Taylor: Yes, and then he goes home to brooke. Look, I’ve been very vocal about how wrong it was for brooke to interfere with my marriage– and not just mine. Your grandmother’s, her sister’s, her daughter’S… I’m gonna do something that brooke logan has never done. Respect a marriage. Even if I have to leave town to do it.

Liam: Well, look, just because C.P.S. Didn’t take any action, doesn’t mean there won’t be consequences, right? The fact that somebody had to show up at all, I mean, that could have an effect, right? Like that– that could be the ammunition that hope needs to convince thomas to change things up.

Brooke: Could be. I mean, I got to think that thomas is freaking out right now, right? Maybe ridge is, too. Who knows? I can only imagine how upset they both are.

Ridge: I just…

Thomas: It wasn’t an anonymous call. She even left her name.

[ Phone rings ]

Ridge: Steffy.

Thomas: Oh, put her on speaker.

Ridge: Steffy, hey, I’m here on speakerphone. I’m here with your brother.

Thomas: Hey steffy.

Steffy: Hey, thomas. Good. You guys can both hear me.

Ridge: What’s wrong?

Steffy: Yeah, I really need to talk to you. Mom’s on a work call, probably won’t be on long.

Ridge: Wait, is something going on with your mother?

Steffy: She wants to leave.

Ridge: Leave what? Your place?

Steffy: Los angeles.

Thomas: What? Why?

Steffy: Because it’s– it’s killing her, dad. Seeing you constantly, go back to brooke.

Thomas: Okay, well, you can’t let her go. You have to convince her to stay. She has every reason to stay.

Steffy: The thing is, she’s really down right now. So, maybe some time away, could be a good thing. Especially if I’m with her to make sure she comes back.

Thomas: Where would you go?

Steffy: Aspen.

Ridge: Aspen?

Steffy: Yeah, bill called me, said he was putting his house up for sale and that we could take a look at it. We’re gonna take his jet and go.

I mean, the timing is good. Mom wants the space, and I can try to convince her not to give up.

Ridge: Give up on what?

Steffy: On you, dad.

Mom is losing faith. She loves you. She’s not a homewrecker. But this is all just so confusing for her.

Ridge: It’s confusing for all of us.

Steffy: How is that

confusing for you? All brooke does is disappoint you.

Are you really gonna

choose her again? Look, mom’s coming, I gotta go. Please don’t give up on her.

Thomas: Mom’s in pain. She wants to leave town. You know, steffy and I have seen you go back and forth between our mom and brooke so many times. It’s painful for us, but it’s painful for her, too. I mean, lately, I know that you’ve been living over at brooke’s, but your heart has been with mom and our family. And that’s been amazing, hasn’t it? Don’t let mom lose faith in you. Don’t make her go through all of this suffering. Especially after what brooke did. Why give your family just any eggs

Steffy: I don’t like the idthe idea of you going away. But I understand it. If you feel as though it’s necessary then I’m coming with you.

Taylor: To babysit.

Steffy: You don’t need a babysitter. You need a daughter. Someone who cares about you and understands what you’re going through. And a daughter who gives, like, a really amazing pep-talk, remind you, to never give up on dad.

Taylor: Oh, god, okay, so that’s the real reason you want to tag along.

Steffy: Tag along? I’m pretty sure bill was the one who called moi. So, you’re the one tagging along.

Taylor: That is an excellent point. Honey, I know you think I’m running away. But I’m not, I’m just–

Steffy: No, I get it. Maybe some time away is exactly what you need.

Taylor: I think you’re right. I just need to– I need to get my head on straight. Because when I come back, brooke will still be your dad’s wife.

Brooke: Ridge was upset. He was very upset.

Liam: Well, I’m not surprised. Somebody calls child protective services on your son, that’s gonna do a number on ya.-You and I, we have our issues with thomas, but I– I’m not, I just– I wish I knew who made the call.

Brooke: I’m sure whoever did call, did it out of love and concern for douglas.

Liam: Yeah, yeah, probably… hopefully. It’s weird to think we may never know.

Brooke: Yeah.

Thomas: It doesn’t have to be this way, dad. You can choose a better life. You could be with someone that makes you laugh, lifts your spirits.

Ridge: I thought I had that with brooke.

Thomas: No, I literally can’t remember a time where it was like that with brooke. You can’t pretend that brooke is a person that she’s not.

Ridge: I don’t know what to do with this.

Thomas: This isn’t the first betrayal, dad. It’s not going to be the last

Ridge: We’ve forgiven each other for so many things. So many things. But this… trying to take your son away from you. Thomas, she wouldn’t lie to me, she wouldn’T.

Thomas: No. Brooke wouldn’t lie to you. Unless she’s trying to protect herself from something horrible she’s done. Oh, like she did when, uh, when she was drinking with deacon. Remember that? When she, she was kissing him and let him sleep in your bed. Or how about when she made out with bill?

Ridge: Thomas, stop,

Thomas: No, no, no. I actually have to say this. Can we dispel with the whole thing about brooke not lying? It’s literally the first thing she goes to. Mom tells the truth, right off the bat. But, brooke, the truth has to be pulled out of her. Trying to act like she’s not going to betray you. You mean, like, she betrayed you with uncle thorne or with your father? Look, I’m not saying this to hurt you. That’s the last thing I would ever want. I’m your son, I love you. I want to protect you, I want to protect mom, I want to protect our family. But stop acting like brooke deserves you. Brooke called child protective services on me. She’s trying to take away my son. You heard the recording, dad, it was her voice. She even said her name. It was brooke, dad. It was brooke.

Diane: I am warning you, Phyllis. Back off.

Phyllis: You’re warning me? Really? Diane, this is one of those teachable moments. Really, it’s teachable. I mean, “back off.” It doesn’t really have a lot of heat. “Back off or…” is really a threat. So you want to try it again?

Diane: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Back off!

Jack: Diane. I can hear you all the way down the hall. What is going on here?

Phyllis: Diane seems to be reconnecting with her authentic self.

Diane: No, I’m sorry, jack. I just — things got a little heated, and —

Jack: Well, try to cool things down would you? Kyle and summer just laid down the law. They made very clear boundaries about this kind of thing. If they’d walked in on this instead of me, you two would be out of a job right now.


Traci: [Gasps] Oh. Oh. [Chuckling] Allie. Oh, my god. What are you doing here?

[Both chuckle]

Allie: Terrifying you, apparently.

Traci: No, no, no, no. I’m fine. I mean, my tablet is still dry, and my tea is still wet, so I’m good, but what about you?

Allie: I’m doing okay. Why do you ask?

Traci: Well because I’m used to having this couple of hours to myself in here. You know, I can spread out and I can work and I can procrastinate to my heart’s content because all of you are at jabot.

Allie: Working on anything interesting?

Traci: Yes, as a matter of fact, I am. It is about this brilliant scientist who loves being in the laboratory until one afternoon she’s home instead of at work.

Devon tells Lily that he is worried about Nate and Elena’s relationship because when he spoke to Elena earlier he found out she was staying at a hotel. Devon explains to Lily that Elena was Nate’s voice of reason and without her he might be inclined to more risky behavior when it comes to Chancellor Winters. Lily doesn’t think Nate and Elena’s relationship is any of their business.

Nikki tells Victor that Deacon saw Diane being chauffeured around in a Bentley sometimes with a man in the car. Nikki shows Victor a picture Deacon gave her with a partial license plate of the Bentley and she says she found out the car is owned by an and entertainment company.

The mystery man in Diane’s hotel room reminds her they had an agreement and she hasn’t kept her part of their deal. The man wants to go to Kyle and Summer’s vow renewal because he thinks it would be the perfect time to reveal his identity to the Abbott family. Diane persuades him that now isn’t the right time to do that and later the man looks at pictures of the Abbotts on his phone.

The vow renewal begins with Summer wearing a beautiful dress and Harrison walking her down the aisle. Noah, Mariah, and Tessa officiate the ceremony together and they welcome the guests to the ceremony.

Allie: The backyard looks beautiful. Everything’s so romantic.

Traci: I know that kyle and summer are just gonna love it, and that’s what matters today.

Noah: Babe, you have got to try this éclair. I saved you a bite.

Mariah: I love pastries as much as the next girl, but we have a lot to do.

Allie: Oh, my gosh, this is delicious. It’s super light.

Noah: Right? I think it’s the best I ever had.

Allie: Mm-hmm.

Traci: Mrs. Martinez picks them up at a little shop over on hill street.

Mariah: Okay, focus, people. There is a lot to do, and we have tasks to complete.

Noah: Chill. We got plenty of time.

Allie: What needs to be done, mariah?

Mariah: Uh, okay, well, somebody’s got to talk to the wedding planner and figure out the last-minute details, and also the flowers for the driveway haven’t been delivered yet.

Noah: Hey, trace, what’s the name of that bakery again?

Traci: It’s called hill street buns.

Mariah: Why are we talking about pastries?! There is a lot to do, so please listen to me.

Tessa: Hey, babe, relax. They’re just getting in the festive spirit.

Noah: Yeah, I’m all about the festive spirit.

Mariah: No. We’re gonna focus on that later, okay? I just need you guys to listen to me for two —

Kyle: No! Today’s a party. Let’s treat it like one. “We have tasks to complete”?

Mariah: What, was that too bossy?

Kyle: Yeah. Kinda. Lose the clipboard. Let’s have some fun.

Tessa: Yeah, I think that’s a great idea.

Kyle: Now let’s go see if there are more éclairs.

[ Laughter ]

Jack: Did someone say éclairs?

[ Doorbell rings ] Hello.

Nikki: Special delivery for the bride from forrester creations of los angeles.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness! Is that the dress?

Nikki: Yes.

Phyllis: Thank you, nikki. Thank you so much.

Nikki: Oh, you’re very welcome. I’m happy to do it.

Phyllis: Uh, so, summer’s getting ready. Do you want to join us?

Nikki: I’d love to, but i have to go home and get ready for the ceremony.

Jack: And I have some éclairs to sample. Bye.

Phyllis: Welcome back. I’d like to hear all about your trip — and I mean all of it.

Nikki: It was very successful.

[ Door opens ]

[ Knock on door ]

Diane: [ Sighs ] I don’t have time for this.

Tucker: [ Chuckling ] Wow.

Diane: Today is a big day.

Tucker: Yes, it is. It is. For everyone.

Diane: [ Sighs ] I told you to keep your distance for now.

Tucker: Oh, uh, do you not want people to see you with me?

Diane: No.

Tucker: Diane?

Diane: Stop! Stop it!

Tucker: In room 567?!

Diane: Could you stop it?

Tucker: You better let me in, diane!

Diane: Alright, get in.

Tucker: 567!

Diane: Just come in. God.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Door slams ] You have come at the worst possible time. Kyle and summer are renewing their vows today.

Tucker: Oh, that’s so sweet.

Diane: Yes, it is. I have dreamed of this moment. And I am so close to getting the trust and forgiveness that i came back to genoa city hoping to find. If the abbotts get one whiff of suspicion about our connection, it’s over for me.

Victoria: I think we’d be foolish not to obtain a majority stake in chancellor-winters when they go public.

Victor: Is the announcement being made soon?

Victoria: I don’t know the timeframe, but that’s what I’ve been told.

Nick: I still don’t like it.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Well, I think your objections are sentimental. They’re not based on our business interests.

Nick: That’s not true, vick. We’d be opening ourselves up to a major conflict with lily and devon, especially when they find out we got our information from nate, who stabbed them in the back.

Victoria: Well, I’m not afraid of a fight.

Nick: Are you prepared for the legal consequences of using nate’s insider information? You want to fight with the federal government?

Victoria: I think it’s worth the risk.

Victor: Son, conflicts like this, legal or otherwise, you know, carry a certain price with it. Question is, is nate hastings able to deliver what we want him to do?

Nate: Audra. How are you?

Audra: Good. Nice to see you.

Nate: Likewise. So, you are making progress on the ipo?

Audra: I have some questions for you before I answer that.

Nate: Sure. Um, hopefully I can be of some help.

Audra: Non-business-related.

Nate: Okay. Well, what would you like to know?

Audra: I mean, what is there to do in this town at night? I mean, this place seems to shut down once the office closes. It’s a ghost town. Is genoa city all work and no play?

Nate: Uh, there’s plenty of play here. You just have to know where to look.

Audra: Where do I begin?

Nate: Well, there’s a club that just opened up. It’s, uh — it has sort of a modern-art theme with a really cool vibe.

Audra: Hmm. I’d like to check it out. Maybe we can go there one night. I mean, since, you know, I’ll be in town for a while.

Devon: Elena.

Elena: Hey.

Devon: How you doing?

Elena: I’m good.

Devon: Yeah?

Elena: How are you doing?

Devon: Doing alright. Just been working away. I’m excited, though, that you get to finally start the podcast for chancellor-winters.

Elena: Thanks. I’m looking forward to it.

Devon: Yeah. I’m sure you’ve heard that, uh — that things have gotten better between me and nate since he’s come back to work. We straightened everything out.

Elena: Yeah. That’s great to hear.

Devon: I’m sure it wasn’t easy for him to admit that he stepped out of line and to ask for a second chance, but we’re all glad that he’s back.

Elena: I’m sure he’s happy to be back.

Devon: Uh, is everything okay?

Elena: Um… actually, no. Numbers move you.

Jack: I don’t remember these cufflinks being such trouble in your wedding in milan.

Kyle: Oh, I still struggled with them. I just didn’t know how to say “cufflink” in italian, so I kept it to myself. Since they were a gift from you, I figured you had a trick.

Jack: Well, unfortunately not. Maybe your grandfather did.

[ Groans ] Your grandfather would be very honored that you’re wearing these, so…

Kyle: Good, because I’m honored to wear them. I love that summer and I are doing this in the house where generations of abbotts lived. Makes me feel connected to the whole family, past and present.

Jack: Voil! The mere mention of your grandfather, and it’s fixed. I love that you care so much about family.

Kyle: Well, it’s what you taught me and what I intend to teach harrison. We stand by each other. We may disagree, we may fight like hell, but in the end, we always come back together.

Jack: I am so incredibly proud of you, so proud of the man you’ve become. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

Harrison: Daddy! Grandpa!

Jack: We were just talking about you!

Kyle: Oh, come here.

Jack: You know what today is, don’t you?

Harrison: We’re getting married again!

Jack: That’s right. And you have a very important job today, young man.

[ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: You know what? You’re a beautiful bride again.

Summer: You’re not gonna cry, are you?

Phyllis: No! No. Maybe. I don’t know. I may.

Summer: Good. You are the toughest woman i know, but you turn into a mushy pile of emotions so easily.

[ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: I’m really happy for you.

Summer: [ Breathes deeply ]

Phyllis: Your wedding in milan — it was gorgeous. But here it just seems like it’s the one that counts, you know?

Summer: Yeah. This is so different than our wedding in italy, isn’t it?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Summer: I mean, this is our home. This is where everything began for me and kyle. It feels right.

Phyllis: Yeah. I agree.

Summer: I just — I hope that there aren’t any distractions.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] What do you mean, summer?

Summer: I-I just don’t want anything to erupt between you and diane today.

Phyllis: Nothing is going to. I’m not gonna do anything. I’m not going to. And we promised that we would co-exist peacefully.

Summer: Yeah.

Phyllis: Nothing will happen today. Nothing. Hey, listen, nothing’s gonna ruin this day for you.

Tucker: I made your return to genoa city possible.

Diane: I’m aware of that.

Tucker: Are you? Because the way you’re treating me suggests otherwise. I expect a little more respect since I’m the one responsible for your chance at redemption. I gave you the key, diane. We had a deal.

Diane: And I’m sticking to it. I’m just asking for a little more time. I-I need to prepare. There are things that need to happen before you reveal yourself.

Tucker: You’re stalling.

Diane: No, I’m not.

Tucker: Today’s the perfect opportunity to make my presence known to the abbotts. They’ll be gathered there for the happy occasion.

Diane: What? No.

Tucker: And then — pfft!

Diane: No!

Tucker: It’s my time.

Diane: No, no, no, no, no. Just listen to me, please. You have to be patient.

Tucker: Relax. I won’t blow your cover. I’ll never reveal our connection, okay? Trust me. I got this.

Nate: I’m not so sure that’s a good idea. The two of us going clubbing and we’re supposed to be working together?

Audra: I don’t see the problem. I mean, what if I suggested a round of golf, okay? Would you object to that because we work together?

Nate: Probably not.

Audra: You see? There’s a double standard. No, people combine work and recreational activities all the time.

Nate: But going to a club has some dangers and temptations you’re not going to find on the golf course.

Audra: You’ve never seen me golf.

[ Both laugh ]

Nate: I suppose you’re right. But I am having some trouble envisioning you teeing off and playing 18 holes.

Audra: Well, if you’re gonna picture me at all, picture me with you at that club.

Nate: Uh, yeah, I don’t see us getting much work done.

Audra: On the contrary. You know, I think it would be a very progressive way of doing business. Think of it as taking team building to a whole new level.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] I’m sorry, audra. I can’T. I’m actually in a relationship.

Audra: Oh. I see.

Nate: [ Sighs ]

Devon: So, what’s the matter?

Elena: Honestly, it’s not even a big deal.

Devon: Okay. If it’s not a big deal, it should be easy to tell me then, right?

Elena: Okay. Um… nate’s transition into the corporate world has been… complicated for me.

Devon: How?

Elena: Well, at first it was fun seeing him take on new role and, you know, trying to prove himself.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Elena: But now it’s — it’s like he’s a completely different person. And I know I must sound really dramatic.

Devon: No. No, I don’t think you sound dramatic. And I know what you mean. I mean, he’s been a doctor his whole life, and that’s the only thing you’ve known him as. Yeah, this whole corporate thing — it’s a very different animal. I’ve even wondered if he’s made the right decision. When he quit, half of me thought, “maybe this is the right move.”

Elena: Yeah. I had a similar feeling.

Devon: Well, you know we all want him to be a part of the family business, as long as it makes him happy and he’s fulfilled by it and he’s not just going through the motions.

Elena: You know, you have always been incredibly generous and forgiving to him. I hope that’ll continue.

Devon: Yeah, I mean, he’s family, so we stand by each other.

Elena: Of course. Well, you know what? I think I should probably get going.

Devon: Okay.

[ Card clatters ] Uh-oh.

Elena: Thanks.

Devon: Why do you have this? You stay in a hotel?

Elena: Yeah. For a while.

Devon: Why are you staying at a hotel? Are you and nate fighting?

Elena: I really should get going. I’ll talk to you soon.

Victoria: I believe that nate has all of the incentive in the world to cooperate with us, given that I’m gonna put him in charge of chancellor-winters once we obtain a majority share. And I think that nate will handle the situation with care and grace.

Nick: So, you think nate can gracefully convince lily and devon that he’s a team player, even though he betrayed them?

Victor: Son, there will be ruffled feathers once we have made the offer, alright? But you must remember that chancellor-winters will be stronger and more profitable. And they’ll be backed up by newman enterprises.

Nick: But they won’t be independent. The people who lead the company won’t be calling any of the shots.

Victor: But that’s their problem. They made the ipo. Let them deal with it.

Nick: Well, as far as lily and devon know, they structured the ipo so their family would retain controlling interests.

Victoria: It was up them to consider every possible scenario. Nate has every right to sell his shares to us.

Nick: Well, you both know how I feel about this. Uh, I’m done talking about it. I got to go and watch summer and kyle renew their vows.

Victor: Give them our love, okay?

Nick: Well, you two have at it. I’m out of here.

Victor: Alright, son. You know, this offer is gonna be financially risky and complicated.

Victoria: I can handle it, dad.

Victor: I know you can. But I want you to go to the renewal ceremony, alright? I will handle things.

Victoria: Don’t you want to go?

Victor: Are you serious? Do you honestly think I want to spend an afternoon at a party given by jack abbott? Better things to do. I’m going to chicago to sort out the finances, alright?

Victor: Okay. Well, I guess it would be bad form if neither one of us showed up. So, you handle the money, and i will fulfill our family obligation.

Victor: It’s a deal, my darling.

Nikki: Well, hello, family!

Victor: Well, look who’s there.

Victoria: Hi, mother. How was your trip to L.A.?

Victor: My goodness.

Nikki: It was lovely. Our friends at forrester designed a beautiful dress for summer to wear today. I dropped it off on the way from the airport.

Victoria: And what about your main reason for the trip?

Nikki: I’ll fill you in later. Right now, your father and i have to get ready for the ceremony.

Victor: I’m not going.

Nikki: Why?

Victor: “Why?”

Nikki: Because jack is hosting it?

Victor: Of course.

Victoria: Well, that’s what he says, but he’s also gonna take care of a business thing for me. So, I’ll see you there.

Nikki: Alright, darling.

Victoria: Okay.

Victor: Come here, my sweet baby. I’m so happy to have you back.

Nikki: Mm. I’m happy to be back.

Victor: Oh, my goodness. So, tell me about deacon sharpe. What did he tell you about diane jenkins’ time in L.A.? Hi, I’m karen.

[ Laughter ]

Devon: Well, hey, you two.

Nate: Hey.

Devon: I must have missed the memo for the meeting today. You guys look like you’re being protective.

Nate: Uh, that would be audra here. I stopped in for some breakfast.

Devon: Oh. So, you guys just ran into each other?

Audra: Nate came in here looking for some eggs florentine, and I’ve been pestering him for things to do in town.

Nate: And no, cousin, i wasn’t much help. I don’t exactly have my finger on the pulse of nightlife here, especially with the work schedules elena and I have.

Audra: And I think that’s a shame. I mean, you have to mix things up, nate. You can’t work 24 hours a day.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: Seeing deacon was as unpleasant as expected. He has not changed.

Victor: Did you confront him about helping diane jenkins fake her own death?

Nikki: Yeah, yeah, but i didn’t really get much satisfaction out of it.

Victor: Well, did he apologize?

Nikki: He tried, but you know people like him — they never truly apologize, even as the words “I’m sorry” are coming out of their mouths.

Victor: Yeah, true, true.

Nikki: But I did get some new information. It seems that diane had a much more luxurious life in california than she led us to believe.

Victor: Huh.

Nikki: She was being chauffeured around in a bentley.

Victor: Really?

Nikki: Mm-hmm. Deacon had a photo.

Victor: Ah. Let’s have a look here.

Nikki: Now, granted, it’s not a great photo, but at least you can see the license-plate number.

Victor: Oh, wait a minute now. This is not a car that would belong to a mid-level real-estate agent.

Nikki: No, it is not. And deacon says that occasionally he would see her riding around with a man.

Victor: Who?

Nikki: Well, he didn’t know that. But I found out that this car is owned by a company named private image limited. They’re based in london, but they have a branch in los angeles, and the business is entertainment and art-related. That’s all I could find out.

Victor: Uh-huh. I’ll have my people find out more if they can, okay? But I’ve got to tell you, my sweetheart, the fact that you’ve found out as much as you have in such a short period of time from deacon sharpe — that’s impressive.

Nikki: But more importantly, it shows that diane is clearly hiding something.

Diane: Hi. I didn’t realize the groom was on door-answering duty.

Kyle: Come in. Come in. Everyone else is too busy listening to maria’s orders.

Diane: Ah. Oh, kyle, I am so happy for you and summer. I-I just can’t believe I’m here to witness this.

Kyle: It’s all the more special with you here.

Diane: Mm!

Kyle: [ Chuckles ]

Diane: Oh, here.

Kyle: Oh, you didn’t have to.

Diane: Ohh!

Kyle: Come on. Come see everybody.

Traci: [ Laughing ] Ah! Nick, hi!

Nick: Hello.

Traci: Mwah! Come in, honey.

Nick: Thank you. I ran into a delivery guy coming up the driveway. I took this off his hands. I’m pretty sure it’s from ashley.

Traci: Oh. Thank you. Wow. Yeah, she got stuck in paris, and she’s not gonna be able to be here today.

Nick: Oh, that’s too bad.

Traci: Yeah. Ohh! You’re looking for a tip, I’ll bet.

Nick: I mean, a little something for the effort would be nice.

Traci: I’m gonna have to pay you in pastries. But bad news — noah ate all the éclairs.

Nick: Ugh. That kid. Sounds about right.

Traci: [ Chuckling ] Come on.

Phyllis: Hey, look at you.

Nick: No, no, no.

Phyllis: You look sharp.

Nick: Let’s look at you.

Phyllis: Thanks.

Nick: Wow.

Phyllis: You look very handsome.

Nick: Well, it’s a big occasion. It’s not every day your girl marries the love of her life, although it does seem like it’s happening once a year.

Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah. Are you ready to do this again?

Nick: Look, I’m very happy kyle decided to have the ceremony here, so I’m willing to get emotional again. I will do anything for that girl.

Phyllis: Are you okay with how it’s going down? I mean, are you okay with not walking down the aisle?

Nick: Totally fine with what they have planned.

Phyllis: Okay. You know, we made a lot of mistakes. But one thing we did right was summer. She’s an incredible girl — and mainly because you’ve been an incredible father.

Nick: I think most of the credit goes to you. I mean, she is more and more like you every day.

Phyllis: Oh, god, I hope so.

Nick: [ Laughs ]

Phyllis: Gosh.

Nick: She’s lucky to have you. You’re an amazing mother.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Nick: So, I hear there’s some pastries. I’m just gonna go introduce myself to them.

Kyle: Excuse me.

Jack: Hey.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

[ Silverware clinking ]

Diane: Hello, jack.

Jack: Diane. Good to see you.

Diane: Yeah, the place looks lovely.

Jack: Yeah, allie and traci did quite a job.

Diane: Well, it’s nice to see ali fitting in so well with the abbotts.

Jack: Oh, she has been a real joy. It’s funny how quickly she’s become an integral part of a family.

Diane: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: I guess we’ve all come a long way in the last few months.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Jack, I want to apologize again for what happened the other night. No, no, no, I — I overstepped. And I — I really shouldn’t have kissed you.

Jack: It’s okay.

Diane: I’ve just been feeling so disconnected from other people and a bit despondent. And I-I should not have put you in that position. But I did feel a connection between us, and I — I guess I just got caught up in the moment. For people who are a little intense about hydration.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

[Sfx: Stomach gurgling]

Billy: Okay. Everything is good to go. I’m gonna head to the house for the ceremony. Are you sure you’re not coming?

Lily: I can’T. I really have, like, a couple dozen things to do here. You keep looking at your phone. Is everything okay?

Billy: Yeah, I guess. Kind of. [ Chuckles ] I’m a little worried about chelsea, to be honest. I’m really second-guessing the way that I have handled this whole johnny situation. I don’t know if telling him that chelsea is his biological mother was the right thing to do. And, you know, it just did not go the way that we hoped at all.

Lily: Billy, you really can’t blame yourself.

Billy: I know. But it is gnawing at me.

[ Knock on door ]

Devon: Hey. Excuse me. Do you have a second to talk?

Lily: Um, yeah, sure.

Devon: Yeah?

Billy: I got to get going, alright? You give me a kiss.

Lily: Okay.

Billy: Mwah!

Lily: Tell summer and kyle i said congratulations.

Billy: I will. I’ll talk to you soon. Later, devon.

Devon: Good to see you, man.

Lily: Uh, what’s going on?

Devon: Uh, I wanted to talk about, uh, nate and audra.

Lily: What about them?

Devon: Well, I’ve noticed that they’ve been spending a lot of time together lately outside the office. And I just ran into elena, and she and nate have been having problems to the point where she’s now staying in a hotel.

Lily: Okay. Um… I mean, I don’t think that’s really any of our business.

Devon: Well, I’m gonna tell you why I bring it up. Elena has been nate’s voice of reason throughout this whole transition into the corporate world. And with everything that’s happened lately, with him quitting and coming back to work, I feel like he needs her positive influence more than ever ’cause there’s a lot riding on this ipo. And I would love for nate to be in a good headspace.

Lily: Devon, look, I —

[ Sighs ] I really think that you need to have more faith in nate. I mean, he seems determined to make the most of his role here.

Noah: And then after the ceremony, let’s play some chill background music.

Tessa: Yeah.

Traci: Well, it looks like allie and I have finished everything on our list. How about you, mariah? How’s the clipboard?

Mariah: Let me see. Check…check, check. I — I think we’re ready.

[ Chuckles ]

Traci: Oh, that’s awesome. Okay, so, I guess all we have to do is turn everything over to the officiant, and then we can relax. So, who is it?

Tessa: That is a great question.

Traci: You — you have someone, don’t you?

Noah: Well, I wanted to do it, so I asked kyle and my sister.

Tessa: And kyle officiated our wedding, so we asked him if we could.

Traci: Well, what did they say?

Mariah: They said we need to figure it out amongst ourselves.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: It’s no big deal. You misread the situation, that’s all.

Diane: I realize that now.

Jack: You read more into my words of encouragement than maybe I intended, and I really just wanted to tell you I think you’re doing a wonderful job rebuilding your life here. You’ve worked very hard, and i think you should be proud of that.

Diane: Thank you.

Jack: I also admire that you’ve taken ownership of your mistakes. You do know some people are never going to forgive that.

Diane: [ Sighs ] Yes, and I’m glad you’re not one of them. You’ve given me a chance to prove myself, and I just — i just don’t want to let what happened the other night get between us.

Jack: We’re fine. I promise.

Diane: Because the connection that we do share as grandparents and parents — that means everything to me. And I-I just — I don’t want to jeopardize that.

Jack: You won’T.

Diane: Okay.

Jack: Well, now that we’ve covered that, maybe — maybe we should head inside.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] Smooth dark chocolate, refreshing peppermint,

Audra: Look, I love spinach. I just don’t want it near my eggs.

Nate: You do not know what you’re missing.

Audra: What’s wrong with a nice denver omelet?

[ Both laugh ]

Devon: Hey.

Audra: Hey.

Devon: I am running into you two everywhere. Look at that.

Audra: I thought lily and billy would be here.

Devon: Billy had to go to a family event, and lily went up to legal to get some clarification on regulations for the ipo.

Nate: What’s she concerned about?

Devon: She didn’t say. I don’t think it’s anything serious, though.

Audra: Does she need me there?

Devon: Uh, no, I’m sure she’ll keep you in the loop, but for now it’s just the three of us.

Nate: You know, uh, I’ve been thinking about the ipo. Should we drop the price a bit? Maybe like 5%, something like that?

Devon: Why? Why do you think we should do that? I think it’s priced just fine.

Nate: A discount could spur some early movement. It could lead to a feeding frenzy, which ultimately drives up the price.

Audra: I agree with devon. I mean, the current valuation is right in the sweet spot. We don’t want to go any lower and give the impression it’s some kind of bargain-basement stock.

Devon: Well, there you go. I’m glad you feel that way.

Audra: Yeah. Hey, I’m gonna go check in with lily in legal just to make sure I’m up to date. I’ll see you later.

Devon: Sounds good. So, man, how’s everything going with you?

Nate: Uh, what do you mean?

Devon: I’m just wondering how you’ve been. How are things with you and elena?

Nate: There’s some tension. She’s upset with me. She thought I let things get out of hand with you, and she’s taking some time to herself. But we’ll work things out.

Devon: Well, that’s good to hear.

Phyllis: I just got a call from abby. Dominic is sick. It’s nothing serious, but they can’t make it.

Jack: Oh, I’m sorry abby and chance won’t be here. Aww.

Phyllis: I know, but our kids come first, right?

Jack: Yeah, that’s right.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Jack: Well, I have to head inside. If you’ll excuse me.

Phyllis: My daughter expressed concerns about us having a potential blow-up today.

Diane: Well, I don’t know why she’d be worried about that.

Phyllis: I don’t, either.

Diane: Yeah.

Phyllis: Nothing would ever spoil our kids’ day, right?

Diane: Right. Like you said, our kids and their happiness comes first.

Nick: You ready to do this again? I mean, it’s not too late. You could change your mind.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] That would be surprising. Just kick kyle to the curb after a year of marriage?

[ Chuckles ]

Nick: I mean, it’s an option.

Summer: I think I’ll keep him around. My question is, though, are you sure you’re okay with not walking me down the aisle?

Nick: Yeah. Your mom asked me the same thing. I’m totally fine. I still get to be the ridiculously proud father of the bride, which I am. When I see you so happy and loved, I couldn’t be more proud of you.

Summer: Thanks, dad.

Nick: You’re a newman. You’re tougher than people think. I mean, look at what you’ve been through. You were born in an elevator. You survived a coma. You beat all of that, with all the ups and downs with kyle. But look at you now — the head designer of your own chic fashion house, happily married, raising a family. In honor of today, I, uh — I got you a little something.

Summer: My gosh. That is beautiful.

Nick: Now, everybody is gonna think the “s” stands for summer. But you and I know what it really stands for.

Summer: Supergirl.

Nick: That’s right. You’re always gonna be my supergirl. I love you so much.

Summer: I love you, too, dad.

[ Inhales deeply ]

Jack: Hey, little brother. I’m glad you could make it.

Traci: Oh!

Billy: Look at this. Look at this place. Doesn’t it look amazing with all these people in here?

Jack: Isn’t it great?

Traci: It feels pretty good, doesn’t it?

Billy: Feels like old times, doesn’t it? Hey, diane.

Jack: Hey.

Billy: It’s really nice to see you here.

Diane: Oh, well, thank you, billy. That’s really kind.

Billy: If you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go find the man of the hour and wish him luck.

Traci: [ Chuckles ]

Diane: I was just going to say, I’ll make sure harrison’s ready.

Jack: Oh, no, I can take care of that.

Diane: Oh, no, no, no, no. You enjoy your guests, and i will keep him busy until the big event.

Jack: Thanks.

Diane: Mm-hmm.

Traci: Oh! Victoria! Nikki!

Nikki: Hello!

Traci: Thank you so much for coming.

Victoria: Hello. I’m so sorry that I missed summer and kyle’s wedding in milan, so I’m grateful to have a second chance.

Nikki: And victor would have loved to have been here, but he couldn’t come —

Jack: But he won’T…be here. You don’t have to explain. We know.

Phyllis: Ah. Hey, nikki. Can I steal nikki away? I need to talk to you about summer’s dress.

Nikki: Oh. Excuse me.

Victoria: This is beautiful.

Phyllis: Hey. So, um, diane is here.

Nikki: Yeah, I know. I saw her.

Phyllis: Yeah. She keeps on insinuating herself into this family, playing the reformed sinner. I mean…

Nikki: It’s total sham. She has to be stopped, nikki. I hope — I so hope you found something in L.A.

Nikki: I have proof that she has been lying about her time there.

Noah: Alright, everybody it is approaching that time, so if you could please make your way to the backyard, the ceremony will begin soon.

Jack: Thanks. Ladies.

Traci: Oh, here we go.

Victoria: Jack. Thank you.

Nikki: A reckoning is coming. Want your clothes to smell freshly

Mariah: Welcome, everybody. If you could please take your seats.

Tessa: Thank you so much for joining us today.

Noah: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to kyle and summer’s renewal of their wedding vows.

[ Applause ] So, the bride and the groom — they left it up to the three of us to decide who would be officiating today.

Mariah: And each of us had a pretty good claim for why we deserved the job.

Tessa: So we argued and fought and argued some more.

Noah: And the conclusion that we came up with is…

Mariah: All three of us are going to do it.

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: We figured a love as big and strong as summer and kyle’s could handle three officiants.

[ Applause ]

Kyle: I’m glad this is the arrangement you agreed on — the three of you. I love it.

Diane: Okay, it’s your turn. Come on. Stand up. Alright. You go do your thing.

[ Laughter ]

[ Laughter ]

[ Laughter ]

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: Kyle and summer, please join hands.

Noah: Dearly beloved…

Tessa: Friends and family…

Mariah: We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life’s most rewarding moments.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

[ Cheers and applause ]

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

[ Wind whipping ]

[ Helicopter blades whirring ]

[ Wind and whirring continue ]

Esther: Are you offering me a job?

Devon: I absolutely am offering you a job, yes.

Audra: Noah? It’s been a long time.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


It looks like you’ve been up all night . I have been. Actually took him an entire night to determine that you shooting Clyde Weston was justified. They also wanted to question us about why we weren’t exactly eager to offer aid to Western afterwards. Helped the man who tried to kill our. Helped the man who murdered Abigail and cold blood.

Really, I’m glad to see you share our sense of family loyalty. Well, look, Chad and I may not be on the best of terms right now, but he still a damara and last night you saved his life and you brought Abigail’s killer to justice and for that I am profoundly grateful. I know Abigail was very dear to. Yeah, I, uh,

thought I loved her. Once turned out it was just an obsession.

No, you know what? I didn’t know what love was telling my Chloe Lane.

Oh my God, Gabby, I’ve just heard the. Uh, By what? Clyde Wilson. Yeah. It’s crazy. No. About Steph and Damara. Is it true that he’s really alive?


Are you looking at?

Like sand through the hour class. So are the days of,

it looks like you lost your blanket.

So, um, did you sleep okay? Uh, you know, there’s this thing called air conditioning. You and I should look into it. Good morning, sis. Hello Johnny. And goodbye.

Yeah, yeah, it’s true. Stephan’s. You know that for a fact. Yeah, I saw him and the demer crept my own eyes. Oh my God, Gabby, that’s amazing. Aren’t you so happy? Wait a minute. So when I thought that I was hallucinating my dead husband, I was actually seeing your dead husband who turns out not to really be dead after all , which means I’m not crazy.

Yeah, I’m not so sure about that.


there’s so much that I wanna say to you.

I just dunno where to start. I do.

Well, the first time you saw Jake was at the Mansion, remember? Yeah. How would I forget I passed out cold, right? And Lee caught you. He says he didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. He would’ve seen Stephan had he actually been. Oh, so you’re telling me that the first time I saw Jake, I was hallucinating, and the second time I saw Stephan come on.

What are the odds of that? Look, whatever really happened, it’s better for both of us if you’re not crazy. Well, on that, we agree. Yeah, I need you at peak sanity so that Lee’s father can restore your rights as a voting shareholder. And you know, Stephen’s trying to take away my Dera shares for me. Okay, Wait.

Why? Why would he do that? He’s your husband. You are the love of his life. Not anymore. Okay. I don’t get this. Neither do I. He claims he never love me, and he sures hell doesn’t love me now

Chloe and I never got the chance. To see what would happen between us because, Well, Gabby, right? Gabby Hernandez is a duplicitous low life, and I’m glad you agree that she needs to be ousted from Damira. Of course. But you did mention that even if I got my shares back, Might not be enough. There’s still a chance that Shin could restore Ava AL’S voting rights to be sar.

We need someone to switch sides and I think maybe Johnny could be switchable. Johnny might need to switch sides. You mean to tell me your own son voted against you? He’s in Ava Batali’s throw. And as much as it goals me, my threats have only driven him further into her arms. Careful, brother, you need to think strategically.

I am. Now I’m going to see Johnny and Ava hat in my hand and express my heartfelt attrition. You’re gonna lie exactly. And if I do a good enough job, then maybe I could get both. What outside? Goodbye. What? What do you mean goodbye? I told you you could crash here for a night. It’s been two. Okay. I haven’t found a new place yet.

Jen. Whose fault is that? Do you know what the rents are like? The market is crazy. Okay, So go spend the night at the Salem in and don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Wow. Way to treat your favorite twin. I can’t do it anymore. All right. You make more of a mess around here than Henry. You’re leaving dirty dishes in the sink.

You’re, you’re leaving sweat stains on my couch because you’re always laying around half Maybe. Maybe you could do something about the AC and if maybe you could stop trying to be provocative towards chinette. It was hot and I’m not Provo. What? Are you taking his side? No, I’m not. I’m just saying what is a few more days on the couch until he finds a place to stay?

Unless of course you are worried that. Chanel nights succumb to the powerful sexual chemistry that the two of us have always had.

Why? Why, why? Why are you here now? Because after all these months, I’m trying to find my killer. You finally have, and I’d like to know how you feel. Oh. How I feel.

I thought I would feel relieved. God, that’s so determined to get justice for you. That’s all I cared about and now that I have, now that we know who, who took you from us?

I just, I feel empty inside.

It’s just, I, I don’t know what I’m living for.

This is dizzy. Keeping track of everybody’s evolving relationships. I think it’ll be disorienting for anyone, especially those who’ve been dead for four years. , I’ll get the hang of it eventually, as soon as they get my life legs back. . Do you have any idea why a wolf kept you on ice for so long? Aside from the hard thing?

Not at one. You know anyone else who may have been involved? I gather Kristin played some sort of role. Yeah, Yeah. Yeah. Are you aware of anyone else,

Mr. Shin? Uh, I wasn’t expecting you, uh, come in. I’m assuming this is about basic black. Actually, no. I was passing your door and thought I’d stop in and see how you and your family are doing, doing. That’s very kind of you. Such a horrible ordeal with Clyde Weston last night, right? Especially for your mother.

What a dreadful thing to have happen on her wedding day and Well, now that Gabby and I are engaged, I have to admit that every time I hear a nightmare wedding scenario, I break into a cold sweat . Especially now that we’ve learned that Gabby’s dead husband, Stephan, is alive. So EJ and Stephan were here to announce that they’re petitioning to have my shares returned to Stephan.

Can you believe it? Hmm. Well, to be fair, they were Stephan’s shares to begin with, right? I mean, you only had them because you were his widow, which it turns out now you’re not. Okay. Whose side are. Well since we share common interest yours for the time being. Good. Good. Because if Lee’s father is able to restore your rights to vote, then he can’t unseat me.

Even if Stephan reclaims his shares, they can’t boot me a ceo. Ah, well I hope now, cuz I certainly don’t want my first day on the job to be my last. Don’t worry. Still have six votes with you and Johnny now that he’s on our. Actually what? Actually what? Well, I’m not so sure we can still count on Johnny’s boat.

Believe me, I am not worried about losing Chanel to you. They’re fooled me. Uh, hello Girlfriend who can speak for herself is actually in the room. I am just responding to his idiotic suggestion that I am jealous when the real reason that I want him out is because I am tired of your smelly naked body taking up all the room in my apartment.

Oh. Do I smell? Yes, you do smell. So go take a shower and then get out. No. Fine, fine. Okay, I’m going Just relax. Would.

He’s so infuriating. Just walking around with that arrogant little smirk and thinking he’s so adorable. Checking himself out in all the mirrors, you know, He’s just pressing your buttons. Hey, you don’t really think you have anything to be jealous of? Me and Johnny, do you? I just got through saying I’m not jealous, Weren’t you?

Okay. Okay. I will admit that I. I have been a little bit thrown off, but it took you weeks to decide which one of us you wanted to be with, John or me, and now it seems like you’re totally fine with him staying here for God knows how long, laying on the couch in his teeny tiny little baby underwear. So I don’t know.

Do I have a reason to be jealous? You tell me. Dupree

Nancy. Ma’am, Mr. Weston’s not allowed any visitors. It’s all right. I, I spoke to, um, Commissioner Hernandez and he said it would be all right. I’m not gonna stay long.

I just wanna know one thing. Pride was anything between. Ever real? Did you ever really love me?

Well, I told you I loved you, Nancy, time and again.

Yes, you did.

And I don’t know why I, uh, even care now, except I thought it might help me to better understand why I got involved with you in the first place. You do anything that helps you. The thing is, and I, I didn’t really see it at the time, but I, I was really messed up after losing Craig. I, I just needed somebody, anybody hate me, feel desirable and there you were.

And crying, even after you were arrested for possessing Abigail’s jewelry, I still believed your lies. That’s how much, that’s how much I needed you and how the very word needy makes me cringed. Yeah, I get that.

Now I just have a one question, since I know the truth. Fire away. You killed Abigail Damira and you tried to kill Sonus.

Clay. Would I have been next? What do I need to do? You need to let go of your anger. You guilt Cause there’s only one person responsible for what happened. And that’s Clyde Weston. But I knew he was on parole. I should have been more careful. I should have protected you. I lived in so much terror after everything that Ben Weston did to me was always looking over my shoulder, everywhere I went.

And I didn’t want that. There’s no way to live. Neither is this. You’re right, it’s not. You almost died last night. Is that what you want? Maybe. Cause I could with you honey. It’s not your choice to make. Oh, maybe it should be. I don’t how to go on,

Don’t I? Can you have to.

It was quite a shock to learn that Stephan is still. I understand he claims he still has feelings for you. That’s what he said. Yes. So you saw him? I did. And it was surreal. He also doesn’t wanna believe that there’s no hope for us. Hmm. Are you quite certain of that? He is. Fascinating, charismatic man from a prominent family.

Hmm. While I already have a fascinating charismatic man whom I love with my whole heart, and even if I wasn’t in a relationship with Brady, I have a hard time going back to Stefan after he cheated on me with Gabby. Now, I’m pretty sure that that’s not what you wanted to hear, but if you’re thinking that I can keep Stephan away from Gabby, then.

That’s not gonna happen, . Well, thank you for your candor. Well, I’ve taken up enough of your time. Best wishes to your mother and you and Brady, and you and Gabby.

Anybody working with Dr. Off?


it’s all so hazy.

Finally, it seems those stock shares are officially yours for the taking. Mm. Let’s go retrieve them from Gary, Shall we?

I wish I could have seen E j’s face. I mean, thinking that you and his renegade son had done the nasty. Yes. Well, it was very satisfying to be hold, let me tell you. And then EJ promptly kicked me out of the mansion, no surprise there. And Johnny decided to come with me just to stick it through his father.

So we went to the Salem in, spent the night. He slept on the floor. Oh really? Instead of his four poster king size bed with the 2000 Fred count sheets. Yep. No posters, no sheets, but um, you know, we’re still on good terms. The truth is, when I kicked him out, he felt really bad and I. I actually missed him.

Great. Fantastic. Go. Go find him. Go wrap your arms and everything else around him and then tell him that you’ve changed your mind, that you actually do wanna sleep with him. Are we seriously doing this again? You know, I’m committed to you. I sometimes have my doubts. Ally, come off. Come on. What? When you finally chose me over, Johnny, you admitted that you still had feelings for him.

Yeah. And I also admitted that my feelings for you were deeper. I made my choice and I’m not looking back, but it’s difficult for me when it seems like you don’t trust me. Okay? I am washed and smelling sweet. Oh God. You ever wear clothes? Donnie, would you please stop torturing your sister? What? I’m not torturing my lovely and loyal sister.

I’m simply obeying her orders to get the hell out of her apartment. So I’m gonna go put my clothes on and leave, but, But where will you. I don’t know. I’ll figure it out and, and thank you for your hospitality.

Hey Johnny. Hey yourself. But you still haven’t found a place to stay. Uh, yeah, I was staying at my sisters for a couple days, but, uh, I think I overstay my welcome. So, yeah, it’s not very sisterly. Yeah. Well, I think you know my family well enough by now to know that we are, um, complicated. Hmm, that’s true. So where are you gonna go now?

I don’t know. I guess I should probably find an apartment, get a job. In a life, um, not, not necessarily in that order, but

why don’t you just start by coming back to the Salem. End with me.

Morning. Hi, um, I missed you last night. I stayed at Res. Thank you far giving me some time. No thanks. Necessary. I know it’s a lot for you to process getting engaged and then finding out that same day that your husband’s back from the dead. I know it must not be easy for you either. Lee, you can be patient.

Gabby, you’re worth it. I still love you. I still want to marry you and I’m hoping you feel the same way.


Oh, you here to take back your, uh, stock shares? What’s this? Oh, you didn’t hear Stephan and uh, ej. They’re teaming up to O me as ceo. No, I didn’t hear, I had no idea. Who’s your brother? You know, I’m sure he wouldn’t wanna miss a minute of. He’s taking care of some paperwork. There’s something I wanted to say to you before why I’ve had some time to think since our last meeting.

Things are a little more clear in my mind, something I need to say to you.

Well, you know, I never claimed to be one of the good guys. , but I swear I wanted to be a better man for you, and I want you to know you’re a special person. In fact, since I’ve been lying here in the hospital, you’re the one I think of most, how I hurt you,

how I wished I.

I wonder,

is there any way you could forgive me?

You gotta go on living.

I mean, what would’ve happened to our kids if they’d lost both their mother and their father? Oh my.

I know. You’re suffer. But please try to remember all. You have to be grateful for all you have to live for, especially our precious Thomas and Charlotte

and all of the memories that you have of us.

I wish we could have made.

But every day, every hour, every second that I spent loving you is more precious to me than if I had lived a hundred years without you.

The greatest gift that you could give to me is to live your life. Define joy again. To find love again. No, there is never gonna be anyone else. There’s only you. You might feel that way right now, but you won’t forever. And if you won’t move on for yourself, then do it for me. So you want me to come back and stay at the end with you?

On what terms? Do we have to put a label on it? ? Is there an it to label? You’re pretty definite about me leaving, so, yeah. Well, maybe I was a little hasty. I don’t know. Just it feels like faith that I just ran hand you now. So you wanna come up and put your bag down upstairs? Huh? Come on. What do you see?

What is it? Stephan? What do you remember? My feelings for Chloe? Chloe doesn’t want you. She will. Once I remind her what we were to each other, Chloe’s in a serious relationship. She’s with Brady now. I’m aware of that, but I’m not giving up on her. So bottom line, Gabby, it would be wise for you to move on with your life, just like I intend to move on with mine and to that.

I will be filing divorce proceedings as soon as possible. Well, it’s official. The securities have been transferred back to Stephen Zane. I should have been informed of this. Consider this your official notice, Gabby, the stock certificates, please. Now, ooh,

you can’t do this. Most shares belong to Gabby. Now, the law disagrees.

You’re enjoying every minute of this, aren’t you? I enjoy when things are ReSTOR to that proper place. You know? Just because I don’t have a single share after me stock doesn’t mean I’m not ceo. I am ceo, dammit, not long. If it were up to me, I’d throw you both out of. The guy’s in charges her call. I have no idea what has happened to you, Stephan, but you and your brother need to get the hell out my office.


My mama says that you should never go to bed mad, and we’ve done that for the past two nights now. Ever since we had that stupid fight about your brother. Yeah. It always comes back to him, doesn’t it? Look, I know I made things difficult when I was choosing between you and Johnny, but you No, we, we have to get past that.

Either you trust me or you don’t. It’s Johnny that I don’t trust. He’s not, he’s over me. Okay. He’s he’s moved on. Right, But Ava dumped him. Yeah, but he was really into her. So doesn’t that mean that he’s over.

Allie, look at me. I don’t want him. I want you. And if words can’t prove that to you, then maybe this will,

if you’re sure. Yes, I am. Alright. Mm-hmm. . Oh, just who I was looking for. Look, dad, if you’re here to order me to come home. Uh, the answer’s still no. So if you’ll excuse us. What if I asked both of you back?

Climb what you did to me pales in comparison to, Oh my God, you killed an innocent young woman, the mother of two small children, not to mention what you did to sunny. He won’t forgiveness. You need to ask it from them, from their families, from Abigail’s family, from Sunny and his.

But I will pray for you, Christ,

Everyone deserves at least that. I appreciate that.


What’s the catch? No catch. Truly look, son, I don’t know if you heard what happened with Clyde Weston last night. I did. Of course you did. Everyone’s heard by now. Anyway, it made me realize how important family is to me. I understand. I’ve hurt you deeply, Johnny, and I need to make amends. I’ve pushed far too many people away in this life and that stops now.

Your Uncle Chad and I have reconciled. I’ve had a chance to get to know your Uncle Stephan, and now I’m determined not to let any more time pass being estranged from my son, whom I truly. And so I’m asking you to come back to the house where you belong. What about Ava? Well, she’s invited as well. As I said, Why?

Yeah, Why this sudden change of heart? Consider it to me a culpa for my unfair conclusions about your mental. So well, how could I turn down such a gracious apology? Evidently, you weren’t hallucinating seeing Jake. You were actually seeing Steph and you were to blame for any understandable confusion. Ava, we do Mirrors owe you on a number of grounds.

Let me start making it up to you. Please come back to the house. My doors are open for the both of you.

Okay. Would you at least consider it?

I will, but But I’m not gonna speak for both of us. Yeah, we’ll talk about it.

How could I think of ever loving someone else when you still have my heart?

Just because you give your heart to somebody else doesn’t mean you have to stop loving me. I know you never will. Just like I will never stop loving you, nor are children

used to tell me how much of me you saw in Charlotte and Thomas doesn’t that. Did I live on in them?

It does Tell me how. Be specific.


You live on in Charlotte’s kindness

and in her sense of humor

and in Thomas’s endless curiosity and how he always marched to feet of his own drill.

Thomas has you laugh

and I, Charlotte,

she has your eyes.

She has you. So beautiful. Beautiful eyes.

Will you do one more thing for me? Anything?

I love you with all my heart. I love you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ridge: Logan, are you still there?

Brooke: Yeah. Yeah, I’m here.

Ridge: You know, I hate asking you this, but put yourself in my shoes. I had people from child services come to my dad’s house, question my son, my grandson. Took everything in me not to lose it.

And you’ve been saying

for a very long time thomas

isn’t fit to raise a family. You don’t think that douglas is safe with him.

Thomas: Dad, she did it.

Ridge: Just please be honest with me. Just tell me. Did you do this? Did you call cps on my son?

[ Birds squawking and waves

Steffy: Mom?

Taylor: Hey, sweetie. How was your meeting?

Steffy: Uh, good, good. Paris and zende are really stepping it up. Finn stopped by.

Taylor: That’s very sweet of him.

Steffy: What is it? What’s wrong?

Taylor: I’m just– I’m just processing.

Steffy: Mom, you can talk to me.

Taylor: You know, I– I– I love your father so much, you know? He knows it, and you and thomas know. Even brooke knows, but–

Steffy: Dad loves you. He flat out told me.

Taylor: Yeah. Yeah, I’m just, um… I’m tired of the back-and-forth and the mixed signals. It feels like…

[ Steffy sighs ] Feels like history is repeating itself, and I did not come back to L.A. For this.

Steffy: Mom, where’s this coming from?

Taylor: Oh, I’ve been thinking about it a lot. I’ve been watching it play out in real time.

Steffy: I’m not–

Taylor: Sorry.

Steffy: I’m not following.

Taylor: I– I– I– I have just been hit with some common sense this week. Everything regarding ridge and brooke and where I fit in and… you know, I told your dad today that it feels like it’s a– it’s a karmic lesson or something. Me– me waiting for him to realize that brooke doesn’t make him happy. So he can choose us only to watch him go back to brooke’S. I know how this story ends.

Steffy: It’s not gonna happen. It’s not gonna happen. Dad’s at the end of his patience with brooke. Their marriage is not gonna last, I’m telling you.

Taylor: I am not a consolation prize.

> Steffy: I get that. But, I see you two together. You’re incredible, mom, and it’s not because brooke is terrible. It’s because dad is in love with you and that’s what drives brooke crazy.

Taylor: It doesn’t matter.

Steffy: Fine. If you want to give up, I’ll respect that. But don’t give up because of brooke. I’m telling you, you and dad are wonderful together.

Taylor: Yeah, we really are. We are wonderful together. And he’s married to brooke.

Brooke: You’re asking me if I called cps?

Ridge: Listen, I don’t think you’d do anything like that, but you mentioned that you would if–

Brooke: Ridge, it wasn’t me.

Ridge: It wasn’t you? Okay.

Brooke: Look, I– I understand. You had to ask. But the important thing is that douglas is safe.

Ridge: And– and he is safe. He’s always been safe, and this– this wasn’t– this wasn’t fair to thomas at all. I mean, nothing’s gonna happen here. All right?

Brooke: Okay.

Ridge: There’s a lot of things going on. I’ll call you later.

[ Beep ] Brooke said she didn’t do it.

Thomas: I’m sure that’s what she said.

Ridge: Thomas, come on.

Thomas: Look, I– I know you want to defend your wife, but I mean, do you actually believe that that’s true? We really had our hands full with our two-year-old.

Taylor: I– I hear– I hear what you’re saying. But, honey, I– I’ve been on this marriage-go-round for decades. I want to get off.

Steffy: Mom, I know you’re devastated, but you can’t give up. You’ve been in other relationships. Has anyone made you feel the way dad does?

Taylor: No. It hasn’t always been a good thing, you know?

Steffy: Well, I think you and dad are meant to be, and i don’t care if brooke talks about destiny. You’re his true love. You are.

Taylor: X marks the spot.

Steffy: Exactly. When dad proposed to you?

Taylor: Yeah. The boat, the deserted island, the treasure hunt.

Steffy: The treasure hunt, yeah, I know. It’s, like, so dad.

Taylor: So, your dad.

[ Steffy chuckles ] With an x in the sand. Found the ring in a treasure box. Hmm. He told me that he wanted to marry me and that he wouldn’t take no…

Both: For an answer.

Taylor: He said that I was the most important woman in his life. The only woman. It was like a fairy tale.

Steffy: It was.

Taylor: There was no happily ever after. Steffy, I’ve been in love with your father for over 30 years. And so much has happened, but I’m the other woman. I know I am on the wrong side of history on this one. Brooke is married to your father. I am not the homewrecker here. That is her karma. It is not mine.

Liam: Sorry I ran off like that. It’s, you know, my dad. When he says “work comes first,” you know, it’s, uh… oh, sorry. Thought– I thought hope was in here. She go down to the cabin?

Brooke: I’m not sure.

Liam: You okay?

Brooke: Um, yeah. I– I don’t want to get into it.

Liam: Yeah, I– I don’t want to pry, but I do care about ya, and, uh, you don’t seem okay.

Brooke: It’s just I have a lot on my mind, a lot I’m trying to process.

Liam: With ridge?

Brooke: Yeah. Ridge. Thomas.

Liam: Is this about the whole thomas/knife thing? Damn it, I wish we could just go over to the house, grab douglas, and get him the hell out of there, like, right now.

Brooke: Me too.

Thomas: Look, dad, I– I know you’re in a tough place and you want to believe brooke, but, come on, you’re not actually buying this, right?

Ridge: She said she didn’t call cps, and I believe her, yes.

Thomas: She’s lying.

Ridge: Stop! That’s my wife. She said she didn’t do it, so she didn’t do it. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t be angry at you. I’m just– it’S…

Thomas: It’s all right. We’re both frustrated.

Ridge: Well, let’s be frustrated with the people who did this to us, people who are trying to tear apart out family. It’s not brooke.

Thomas: There is a way we could find out.

Ridge: What are you talking about?

Thomas: You remember walter, product development?

Ridge: Walter, yeah, sure. What does he have to do with this?

Thomas: Oh, he decided to leave fashion and work in the, uh, the social services. I mean, he– he’s a consultant for a few branches. I think one of them is child protective services, so I’m sure they record those calls. He could probably tell us who made the call.

If you have type 2 diabetes

or high blood pressure…

[ Steffy chuckles lightly ]

[ Phone ringing ]

[ Beep ]

Steffy: Hey, bill.

Bill: Hey, steffy. Uh, listen, I’m rushing to a meeting, so I’m gonna cut to the chase. I’m putting the aspen home up for sale. I know how much you love it there, so I wanted to give you the first opportunity at it.

Steffy: Oh, wow. Uh, uh, that’s very nice of you. Thank you for the offer.

Bill: Listen, nobody’s there at the moment, so if you want to go check it out, you’re welcome to do that. In fact, uh, you can use my jet. I’ll have othello set it up for you.


Steffy: Uh, yeah, yeah, thank you. I’ll– I’ll– I’ll get back to you, okay? Thanks.

Taylor: Who was that?

Steffy: It doesn’t– it doesn’t matter. Look, I want to continue this conversation about dad.

Taylor: About me moving on with my life. That’s great.

Steffy: Dad loves you. And you love dad. I’m not asking you to be a homewrecker. Dad and brooke’s home was wrecked long ago.

Taylor: Yeah, well, this isn’t the first time their marriage has fallen apart because of brooke’s manipulative games, and it won’t be the last. I know how this story ends. Lots of drama, tears for days, and your dad ends up with brooke.

Liam: It kind of seems like maybe something else is going on. Is there something I’m missing?

Brooke: Ridge called while you were out. He was very upset.

Liam: Oh. Okay. Why?

Brooke: Well, as you know, thomas taking douglas to live with him at eric’s has put kind of a strain on our marriage.

Liam: Yeah, hope’s been, uh, worried about that. Not gonna lie, I have been too.

Brooke: Ridge and I always work things out. My main concern is douglas. Thomas is dangerous. I mean, yes, he’s made strides to make himself a better person, but who changes that much that fast?

Liam: I agree 100%.

Brooke: Feel like he’s just a crazy man wielding a knife around his child. And ridge doesn’t understand the danger it is for douglas to be there.

Liam: Neither does hope. I just– I don’t know. I– I think, um, I think maybe they’re so invested in– in thomas being well that– that it’s clouding their judgment. I– I can’t believe that douglas has been over there for this long. I… all right, well, anyway, what– so, what– what did happen? Is it you and ridge arguing over thomas and douglas again?

Brooke: No. No, but I can understand why his anger was directed at me. Child protective services were called to go check on thomas’ treatment of douglas, and ridge is very upset.

[ Brooke sighs ]

Thomas: Thank you.

Ridge: For what?

Thomas: For calling walter.

Ridge: No, it’s a good idea. We need to figure out who made that phone call.

Thomas: Yeah.

[ Knocking at door ]

Ridge: Here we go. Walter.

Walter: Ridge forrester, hey.

Ridge: How long has it been?

Walter: Uh, since you were teaching this guy how to drive a stick. Told you not to let him learn on the porsche.

Ridge: And you were right. I miss that car.

[ Walter laughs ]

Thomas: I’m a much better driver now, thankfully. It’s good to see you.

Walter: Good to see you, both of you.

Ridge: It is good to see you.

Walter: Yeah.

Ridge: Wasn’t easy losing you at forrester.

Walter: Are you kidding? It wasn’t easy leaving.

Ridge: But you’ve got a new job now, right? Helping people. Helping children.

Walter: It’s the main department my company consults for.

Ridge: That’s great.

Walter: So, what’s going on? Your call sounded urgent.

Ridge: It– it is urgent, walter. Uh, look. Thomas just moved into my dad’s house with his son douglas, and today, two cps officers showed up to question the boy.

Walter: Really?

Ridge: I just want to make it clear that– that– that douglas is safe and he’s happy and healthy in this house, and the officers saw that right away.

Walter: That’s really great to hear. Is this why you wanted to see me?

Ridge: We wanted to see you, walter, ’cause we’d like to know who made the phone call. ‘Cause either someone was deeply misinformed or someone was trying to hurt my family or my son’s name. So we need to see who made the call. I’m jonathan lawson

Steffy: Mom, I understand that you don’t want history to repeat itself, but you and dad have been great, and dad and brooke’s marriage is barely holding on. Why give up now?

Taylor: Because I don’t like who I am right now. I’m fighting with brooke over your father.

Steffy: But he’s finally realizing who brooke really is. And he’s realizing what he has with you. You honestly believe that he’s not in love with you, really?

Taylor: No, I know– I know he is. He’s in love with me while he’s married to brooke, trying to make a decision. That is– that is brooke’s karma coming back. I’m not gonna do to her what she did to me. To us. I’ll respect the marriage. I– I just can’t do it here.

Steffy: What are you saying?

Taylor: I just need to get out of L.A. I need to go.

Steffy: What?

Taylor: I just…

Steffy: No.

Taylor: Just temporary, I promise. I just– I don’t want to be here.

Steffy: Okay. If you’re not going permanently, then… I’ll go with you. We could go to aspen.

Taylor: Aspen?

Steffy: Yes, aspen. I was just on the phone with bill. He’s selling his house. He wanted me to go check it out. So that’s where we’ll go.

Taylor: Honey, you have– you have finn. You have your kids. You have your job.

Steffy: Mom, let me worry about that.

Taylor: Honey, just, I–

Steffy: No, mom, you’ve always supported me. You’ve always been there for me. Now it’s my turn. You want to get away for a little bit? Fine. But you’re not doing this alone. I’m just never gonna stop giving up that you and dad belong together, that you’ll be happy. You’re gonna reunite.

Liam: Cps?

Brooke: Yes.

Liam: And, what, they just showed up at eric’s? Started questioning thomas and douglas?

Brooke: They did.

Liam: I– I’m– I’m so confused. What– who would– who would call cps on thomas?

Walter: Ridge, what you’re asking me–

Ridge: I wouldn’t ask you at all if it wasn’t for my family. It’s my son’s name.

Walter: I can’t play you a recording from a cps call. It’s unethical.

Ridge: All of this is unethical. I have strangers coming to my dad’s house and questioning my son like he’s a criminal, looking at douglas like he’s being abused. He’s a good father.

Walter: I don’t doubt that, but what you’re asking me–

Ridge: What I’m asking you is to try to help me. Who’s trying to tear apart my family? I want to know who made the phone call.

[ Walter sighs ]

Walter: I understand your predicament, I really do. I feel for you, but I– I can’t– I can’t give you confidential information.

Thomas: Look, hey, hey. This would be a personal favor to us. I realize that it’s stressful to you, but it’s gonna be off the record, okay? No one’s gonna find out.

Walter: I– I could lose my license, my livelihood.

Ridge: I wouldn’t let that happen.

[ Walter sighs ]

Walter: If it was anyone other than you– you have to promise me you won’t say a word to anyone about any of this, especially the person who made the phone call.

Thomas: I promise.

Ridge: No one’s ever gonna know.

Walter: Douglas?

Ridge: Douglas forrester.

Walter: It’s the wrong phone. Work phone. There.

[ Walter sighs ] Douglas forrester. I found the case. Case is closed. No findings of concern or need for follow-up. There is a voice recording of the phone call attached. Before I play it, you have to promise me both again that you won’t say a word to anyone.

Thomas: We won’T.

Ridge: Play it.

[ Beep ]

Woman: Child protective services.

Sally: My treat.

Chloe: No, this is going on the expense account. With all the extra hours we’ve been putting in, newman should cover this.

Sally: Okay. Well, if you will not let me repay you and your hard work by buying you a decaf, then please let me at least thank you from the bottom of my heart for staying late tonight.

Chloe: Oh, it’s not a problem. The kids are in good hands, and I just really want to keep up this good momentum. So, speaking of, how was your meeting with nick? Tell me everything.

Sally: Everything?

Chloe: Yeah. So, does he like the direction we’re taking?

Sally: Yeah, he was positive.

Chloe: Okay, great. So, what ground did you guys cover?

Sally: It was a very constructive meeting. Nick gave me some really helpful pointers, and he, you know, uh — we saw eye to eye on just about everything. Yeah, it went better than expected.

Chloe: I mean, I am so happy to hear that. Look, I… I know I’ve said some things. I’ve heard from time to time i can be somewhat critical and, you know, a little outspoken.

Sally: Who, you?

Chloe: It’s only because you have so much potential. And I want what’s best for you and for newman media. You had to fight to stay here. And I will be damned if I’m going to let you screw it all up now. And now you have nick newman himself singing your praises. I mean, he can’t seem to get enough of you.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Chloe: What? What were you gonna say?

Sally: Nothing.

Chloe: Okay.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Chloe: But you know whatever it is, you can tell me.

Sally: We really can trust each other?

Chloe: You need a friend? Look no further.

Sally: Okay. It’s about nick. But it has nothing to do with business.

Nick: When you asked me about sally before, I told you it was none of your business, yet here you are. You followed me here just to repeat your accusations?

Adam: Well, sometimes you have to ask the question more than once to get the truth, nick.

Nick: Your ex can do whatever the hell she wants, and that does include having a business dinner with her boss.

Adam: Mm. Well, the way you two were looking at each other, I highly doubt you were discussing newman media’s profit margins.

Nick: Just letting that imagination run wild, huh?

Adam: [ Sighs ] Listen, this is ridiculous. Why do you keep avoiding the question? Why don’t you just come clean, nick, that you and sally are sleeping together? And you — you just couldn’t wait to make your move, huh?

Nick: Jealousy is not a good look for you, adam. And I advise you to tread carefully.

Adam: Nick, she’s using you.

Nick: Yeah?

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Nick: For what?

Adam: To get back at me. See, you’re the rebound guy. I broke her heart, and she went to the next newman in line. Now, you must know that, but you just decided to go along with it.

Nick: You don’t know what you’re talking about. If you think that’s what’s going on, then you don’t know me or sally very well.

Adam: Well, it’s a funny thing you haven’t denied that you’re sleeping together, so i guess that tells me everything that I need to know.

Summer: Ah. Mr. Abbott.

Kyle: Mrs. Abbott-to-be again. Happy vow renewal eve.

Summer: Same to you, my love. But there has got to be a better name for this.

Kyle: It is a bit of a mouthful.

Summer: Yeah, it really is. I was thinking about it on my drive home. Sorry I couldn’t leave the office with you, by the way. I got pulled into a last-minute meeting, and then I had a bunch of phone calls to catch up on —

Kyle: It’s fine. It’s fine. I want to hear all about your day later — because right now, you are needed in the bedroom.

Summer: Oh, you don’t say. Tell me more.

Kyle: I can’T. It’s a surprise.

Summer: Mm. Okay. [ Chuckles ]

Nate: I, uh, hoped that taking a walk…

[ Keys clatter ] …Would give us some time to cool off.

Elena: I’m certainly calmer now. But it hasn’t changed how I feel about what you did.

Nate: I guess it’s safe to assume you still think we need to spend some time apart.

Elena: Yeah. I think it’s for the best. I booked a room at the grand phoenix.

Nate: [ Scoffs ] For how long?

Elena: I don’t know.

Nate: I cannot believe you think moving out would be the solution to our conflict.

Elena: I didn’t say it was a solution. This is about getting some distance so that we can actually find one.

Nate: I still think it would benefit us if we stayed together and worked through this here in our home.

Elena: No. Considering how I feel… I can’t stay here with you. It would just make things worse than they already are. What happens to your body language

Sally: Things between me and nick have taken a decidedly personal turn.

Chloe: Okay. Um, are we talking, like, fun flirtation or something more intimate?

Sally: The second thing.

Chloe: Oh. Okay, um…how intimate?

Sally: Very.

Chloe: Okay. Um…these things happen. You know, you have a couple drinks over dinner and you forget your boundaries and, you know, we all make mistakes.

Sally: Is it still a mistake if it happens twice?

Chloe: Twice. Okay. So, not like a drunken one-night stand? Okay.

Sally: Mm-hmm.

Chloe: I see.

Sally: Do you?

Chloe: Yeah. Um… yeah, I d– I — you know, I’m gonna need, like, a minute to process this. I just — I’m fine. I-I’m — I’m to– I’m totally fine. I…

Sally: Okay. Well, I would appreciate that because I could really use a friend right now.

Chloe: Yeah. What kind? Like, what kind of friend? Like, the kind that, you know, is, you know, really supportive? Or the kind that offers, like, a ton of opinions? Because I just need to know before I go into this so I don’t screw it up. So, like, how long has this been going on between you and nick?

Sally: It’s brand-new. And — and — and it’s not even something I was looking for and certainly was not expecting. It just was out of the blue. But, oh, my god, chloe, it has just been mind-blowing, like —

Chloe: Okay. Uh, you know, over-sharing. I…

Sally: Okay, look, I don’t know what it is, okay? We’re not over-analyzing it. We’re not putting a label on it. It’s just, all I know is that he’s honest and charming and

[Laughs] So funny. And he listens to what I have to say, and he respects my opinions. Oh, my god, and, chloe…

[ Chuckles ]

Chloe: No. Please don’T. Please don’T. Just don’T.

Sally: [ Sighs ] All I was gonna say that I’m genuinely happy when I’m with him.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] Look, nick is a really good guy. And he’s been your biggest champion lately. But I don’t think you’re doing yourself any favors getting involved with not only your boss, but adam’s brother.

Sally: I know, and it wasn’t something that I was looking for. It just happened.

Chloe: Happened. Yeah, I know. I-I get it. I get it. I… I know what it’s like to have a connection and then it just, you know, veers off into a completely unexpected direction. But, you know, as much as I want you to move on because it is the healthy and smart thing to do… you’re not 100% over adam, are you?

Sally: I’ll get there.

Chloe: Adam’s a lot, and it’s gonna take you a while to get him out of your system and…

[ Sighs ] Overlap? It can get really messy.

Sally: Yeah, I know. I’m aware. And nick knows exactly what I’m going through, okay? We have been very open with each other about it.

Chloe: Okay, that’s great. But I have to ask. Does adam know about nick?

Sally: Know for sure? No. But, I mean, he definitely suspects. He asked me about nick point blank.

Chloe: Okay, well, that’s not good.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Chloe: What did you tell him?

Sally: I refused to indulge him, and I shut him down. You saw me talking with him today. It was totally civil. And it was the same when nick and I crossed paths with him at dinner tonight with chelsea.

Chloe: [ Laughing ] Oh! That sounds like an evening from hell. I mean… wow, I have never been happier to have my husband and children waiting for me at home with our perfectly boring life.

Sally: Yeah. I know. Now that I’m finally saying it out loud, yeah, it does sound a bit —

Chloe: Dangerous?

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Chloe: If adam has even the slightest hint of suspicion that you are hooking up with his brother, he’s going to find you and hound you for an answer. And if he finds out what’s really going on, we both know that he will not handle it gracefully.

Adam: Look, if you and sally are together, why don’t you just have the decency to tell me that, okay? Why are you so afraid to tell me the truth, nick?

Nick: I’m not afraid of anything. But it’s clear you are. You obviously regret ending things the way you did. But you coming here looking for a fight with me is not gonna change what happened. You need to let it go, adam. You got a lot going for you. You got that new job. There’s a lot of room for growth and recognition with jack at jabot. He really likes and respects you. Try and be happy there. But this? We’re finished.

Adam: Are you for real, nick? You think I’m just gonna crawl out of here with my tail between my legs? Not a chance — because I am just getting started.

Nate: I hate that things have come to this.

Elena: So do I.

Nate: But what I hate even more is that you cannot and will not see my plan from my perspective.

Elena: I see exactly what you’re doing. But more importantly, I see exactly who you’re becoming. Nate, you used to care about people so much that you spent all your free time volunteering at the clinic. But now it’s like you’re blinded by greed and ambition and believing that your opinion is the only one that matters. And I don’t recognize that man. It’s like you’ve — you’ve turned your back on medicine and the only thing you value is power and recognition over everything else, even your own family.

Nate: That is not true. Yes, I want to make my mark. Yes, I believe I can be the kind of leader chancellor-winters deserves. But I do not value power over the people in my life, not more than what I have with you.

Elena: I used to believe that.

Nate: Wow. You’re killing me talking like this.

Elena: It kills me to have to say it. I never thought we’d end up here. And I would do anything to help you, but you won’t even listen to me, so I don’t know how i can.

Nate: I don’t need you to save me. What I want… what I want is your love and support. The same thing I give to you is what I expect in return.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, but it seems like that’s too much to ask. So, after, uh, talking this out, I see the sense in what you’re saying.

Elena: You do?

Nate: Yeah. I think you’re right. This separation is for the best. – Bedtime!! – Bedtime.

Kyle: No peeking.

Summer: Hurry up. You’re driving me crazy.

Kyle: Ah. That’s the idea.

Summer: Mm. Mmm. Mmm! If that was the surprise, I am not complaining, but you didn’t need to go through all this fanfare.

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

Summer: Okay.

Kyle: [ Laughs ]

Summer: Well, that felt surprising. Can I see it? Oh, it’s cute!

Kyle: Uh-huh.

Summer: It’s cute. It’s, uh — it’s very wearable, although I don’t know how much use I’m gonna get out of it, considering it’s fall now. But I promise I will wear it as much as I can, despite the strange looks that I’ll get.

Kyle: Uh-huh.

Summer: Who knows? Maybe I will start a trend — straw hats in autumn. What do you think?

Kyle: Oh, you take my breath away. But I can’t believe you just bought that.

[ Laughs ]

Summer: Oh, you think i bought that ridiculous cover story that you were, what, walking through the fenmore’s sales section and you saw this off-season straw hat and just thought it would look so good on me?

Kyle: Mm-hmm. You make everything look good.

Summer: No. This isn’t your average, run-of-the-mill straw hat, is it?

Kyle: No.

Summer: It’s a — it’s a sign.

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

Summer: A clue?

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

Summer: What did my handsome husband do?

Kyle: You’ll never figure it out.

Summer: What, you… oh, you signed up harrison for those basket-weaving classes?

Kyle: Mm…think more romantic.

Summer: You want me to… fall in love… with this hat.

[ Both laugh ]

Kyle: I didn’t buy the hat on a whim, and the only straw baskets in your future will be filled with guava fruit because they grow all over where we’re headed.

Summer: We’re going somewhere?

Kyle: Uh-huh.

Summer: [ Gasps ] Oh, my god. We’re going away! Where we going?!

Kyle: To a place where the straw hat will fit right in with the tropical vibe. How does costa rica sound for a honeymoon?

Summer: Ahh! [ Laughs ] God! It sounds like the best honeymoon ever!

Kyle: Yeah!

Summer: [ Laughing ]

Adam: Well, thank you, nick, for the, uh, pep talk and the platitudes, but that’s not why I’m here. I want to know what is going on with the woman that I still love and my brother.

Nick: If sally wanted to talk about her personal life with you, she would have done that. But she obviously chose not to. She also made it clear that she doesn’t want to see that much of you. But you doing this little end around her and coming to me is just sad.

Adam: God, it is fascinating how you portray yourself as the outsider, nick, when you put yourself in the middle. See, this isn’t just about sally. It’s about you and what you are doing to me.

Nick: Oh, here we go. Cue the violins. Poor adam. Always the victim.

Adam: No, no, no. I prefer innocent bystander. Because you may not have intentionally done something to me, but you have to admit you took full advantage of my situation and you didn’t give a damn how I felt about it, nick.

Nick: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Adam: Really? Really? ‘Cause after years of showing no interest in the family business, you’re suddenly coo? And having no interest in sally, now she’s never too far from you, having meetings in the office over dinner, in her hotel suite. I mean, nick, there are thousands of other women in this town, and who is the one woman that you went for?

Nick: Not everything is about you.

Adam: Yeah, it’s just a crazy coincidence, right? And, hey, I should ignore it because I have a new job.

Nick: I get it that you’re frustrated, but I do not appreciate you coming in here and twisting my words and everything I’m doing and making it into this weird personal vendetta that simply doesn’t exist.

Adam: No, nick, this conversation isn’t over, okay?

Nick: No, this is not a conversation because you’re not listening. You walked through that door and you already had your mind made up.

Victoria: What the hell is going on here?

Sally: I really don’t want to talk about how adam would react to that news because there really is no news to react to, okay? Nick and I are…

Chloe: Work buddies?

Sally: Not a thing. Okay? And if you wouldn’t mind, i would really rather drop the subject because I have way too much on my mind already.

Chloe: Okay. Yeah, I — you know what? You’re right. We can just cross that bridge when we come to it. But I do think we should address the most important thing.

Sally: What’s that?

Chloe: What does your heart feel?

Sally: Look, as complex and confusing as my emotions are, i know I can’t go back to adam. I refuse to let him break my heart again.

Chloe: Great. But I wasn’t talking about adam. I was talking about nick. A dental tool is round for a reason.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Elena: I think I have everything I need for now.

Nate: It’s not like this is forever, right?

Elena: I should get going.

[ Sighs ] I love you, nate. I wish…

Nate: Yeah. Me too.

[ Door closes ]

Summer: I cannot believe you did this. I’m getting an actual honeymoon with my husband?

Kyle: Mm-hmm. You are going to love the — mnh, no, no, nope, I shouldn’T. I shouldn’t say anything.

Summer: No.

Kyle: No.

Summer: No. Come on. Tell me. I want to know what I am in for.

Kyle: Are you sure it won’t wreck the surprise?

Summer: The anticipation will only make the excitement last longer. Now, come on. Tell me about my honeymoon.

Kyle: Well, hold on to your hat ’cause I’m taking you away to paradise. And I’m not just talking about skies bluer than anything you could imagine or warm and refreshing water and food so good your taste buds will wonder why you’ve been depriving them for so long. There will be all of that and more. But at some point, while you’re wrapped in the sheets, napping in the sunshine in our luxurious room, you’ll wonder why we missed those scuba diving lessons and why we’ve so rarely danced underneath the millions of stars you can see from our private villa.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Wow. You have painted such a vibrant picture, I can — I can practically feel the sand beneath my toes.

Kyle: Mm-hmm.

Summer: Babe, we have a company to run. Are you sure that we can actually get away?

Kyle: Have a little faith. There will never be a perfect time. We’re the bosses. But we have executives who can oversee things while we’re gone. Marchetti will keep running smoothly.

Summer: Mm. You are very persuasive. But you know what? I think I need to get a better glimpse of what’s gonna happen while we’re away.

Kyle: How about I give you a preview of our honeymoon right now?

Summer: I think it’s always smart to be proactive.

Kyle: Well, I predict your favorite memory from our trip to costa rica would be a kiss that looks a little something like this.

Summer: Mmm.

Victoria: Are you looking for me?

Adam: I actually came to see nick…but I’m leaving now. I’m sure he will bring you and sally up to speed — because i would bet good money he’s going to see her yet again tonight. Till next time, brother.

[ Door slams ]

Victoria: What is that?

Nick: Just, uh, adam doing what he does best — looking for a fight.

Victoria: I was actually referring to his comment about sally. Do you care to elaborate?

Nick: It’s nothing for you to worry about. In fact, it’s nobody’s business.

Victoria: Oh, I disagree. You and adam just made it my business.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Elena: [ Gasps ]

[ Sniffles ]

[ Cries ]

[ Stopper clinking ]

[ Bottle thuds ]

Nate: [ Sighs ]

[ Sighs heavily ]

Victoria: You’ve become a very strong advocate of sally, more so than I would have expected.

Nick: I am fighting for her because she deserves a position, and I’m still convinced she’s gonna do great things for newman media.

Victoria: I have my reservations about whether or not she’s the best person for the job, but I trust your judgment, which is why I gave her a chance to prove herself. I have to admit, she defended herself admirably.

Nick: Then what’s the problem?

Victoria: Well, you know, i don’t need to know any more than I already do, but what matters to me is that, regardless of the truth, adam seems to think that there’s something going on between you and sally, and he’s not happy.

Nick: You picked up on that, too, huh?

Victoria: You know what? Don’t joke about this, nick. Adam’s gonna lash out. The only question is, how bad will it be?

Sally: I don’t get your concern about nick. Don’t I deserve a nice guy?

Chloe: Of course. I think I’ve gotten to know you pretty well. And when you feel things, you feel them deeply. And when someone sees you, it means everything. Okay, look, I think you’re making a gigantic deal out of nothing, okay? It is not like that with me and nick.

Chloe: Okay. So, what if he shows up at your place and he says, “this was just a thing, and it’s over”? You’d be okay with that?

Sally: Okay, well, I don’t think that that’s how it’s gonna happen, but if this continues and things don’t work out for either of us, then we just talk about it and we call things off.

Chloe: Okay. Yeah. I mean, you just go back to the way things were before they started, and, you know, you’re adults and it’s — it’s fine.

Sally: Mm-hmm. Exactly.

Chloe: You know I’m just looking out for you, right?

Sally: I appreciate that. But I am not gonna get my heart broken.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] You know that’s something that you can never really predict.

Sally: You’re right. I mean, how could I possibly know what the future holds for me when I can barely even understand the present? I just…need time. You know? I’ll figure things out.

[ Sighs ] My skin, but better.

Nick: Don’t worry. I can handle adam.

Victoria: Well, he’s not the only person that you have to worry about. What about our father? He’s gonna have a thing or two to say once he finds out that you’re romantically involved with a woman that he wants to fire.

Nick: It’s not that big a deal.

Victoria: Well, it’s probably gonna be a big deal to summer. How do you think she’ll feel when she finds out you’re seeing someone who is hell-bent on stealing her job? And don’t you dare say all’s well that ends well.

Nick: You’re getting way ahead of yourself, alright? And whatever is or isn’t happening is not for public consumption.

Victoria: Dream on. Everything has a way of coming out eventually, whether you want it to or not.

Nick: It’s my life.

Victoria: Fine. I won’t push. No more big sister commentary.

Nick: Thank you.

Victoria: And we’re gonna table all work talk until tomorrow. I’m exhausted. I just want this day to be over.

Nick: Yeah, it makes sense, with everything that’s going on with chelsea and johnny that you’d want to get out of here early.

Victoria: You want to walk me out?

Nick: Uh, I got some things i got to take care of before I can leave.

Victoria: Alright. Don’t have too much fun.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Victoria: And one more thing about sally.

Nick: Come on. I thought we were done with that.

Victoria: Before you take any further action, I’m asking you to consider what you’re doing very carefully. If this is some passive-aggressive attack against adam or you’re bored or you like playing with fire, just remember what you’re doing — it affects the company and the family. And that’s an absolute certainty.

[ Door closes ]

Chloe: We were about to leave. Let’s just stick to our plan. Adam, whatever it is, the answer is no.

Adam: Sally, sally, sally, I just want to talk.

Chloe: Did you not just hear what I said?

Sally: It’s okay, chloe. You can go.

Chloe: Okay, well, I’m not about to leave the two of you alone together.

Adam: Okay, well, fine. You can stay. I just — I just want a straight answer.

Sally: We have already been over this, adam.

Adam: Why — why is it so hard for you to just be honest with me? You know that this is eating away at me, and you know how i feel about you, so just tell me, please. I just need to hear the truth from you.

Sally: [ Breathes deeply ] Yes. Something happened between me and nick. I don’t know what it is, but whatever it is, you don’t get to have an opinion on it, okay? You and I broke up. I don’t owe you an explanation.

Summer: This is bliss.

Kyle: Mm.

Summer: Just the two of us. A quiet interlude before the wonderful mayhem of our vow renewal tomorrow.

[ Both laugh ]

Harrison: Daddy! I need you!

Kyle: Uh, we’re on our way, harrison!

Victoria: Hello.

Nate: Hey. You having dinner solo?

Victoria: Oh, I ordered to go. I just want to get home and put on my robe and have a little peace.

Nate: Uh, care to join me while you wait?

[ Clears throat ]

Victoria: You look like you’re not having the best night, either.

Nate: Yeah. I just, uh, needed to get out and clear my head.

Victoria: Does whatever is going on with you have to do with chancellor-winters?

Nate: It has everything to do with it.

Victoria: Oh, I see. Does that mean that you’re changing your mind about our arrangement?


Kyle: What happened, kiddo? Was it a bad dream?

Summer: I’m gonna guess because I think I know what’s going on here. Did you have a really good dream? Like, the best kind, where everything you want happens and it all works out in the end? And then you were so happy you couldn’t fall back to sleep?

[ Laughs ]

Kyle: [ Laughs ]

Summer: I have those dreams, too. I bet it’s because of tomorrow. Are you super excited for tomorrow, too?

Harrison: I can’t wait.

Kyle: Mm. Neither can I.

Summer: I think it’s gonna be like your birthday and christmas and 4th of july and all of the best days wrapped into one and then dipped into chocolate.

Harrison: I love chocolate.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] It’s gonna be a great day for all of us.

Summer: We just need to do one thing.

Kyle: What’s that?

Summer: A group hug.

Kyle: Ooh.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Here.

Kyle: Come here and give us a hug, buddy. Come here. Aw!

Summer: Ohh!

Kyle: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: I’m a man of my word. Our arrangement stands.

Victoria: I’m happy to hear that.

[ Chuckles ]

Nate: Too bad elena wasn’T. She doesn’t understand my reasons, can’t see my point of view. It’s, uh, created some conflict between us.

Victoria: Well, I am sorry to hear that, but I have to say, i was a little surprised that you told her what your plan was in the first place.

Nate: I wish I hadn’T.

[ Clears throat ] But, uh, if you’re worried she’ll spill the beans, don’t be. She would never do that to me.

Victoria: You know, there will always be people who take issue with people like me. And like you and my dad, the ones who take bold and daring moves and are not afraid to see the big picture.

Nate: Mm.

Victoria: We don’t all have the vision, you know, and that’s fine.

Nate: I cannot tell you what a relief it is to talk to someone I don’t have to explain myself to.

Victoria: You know, what we do in the corporate world is just as important and valid as any other field. We create jobs. We — we pay salaries. People are clothed and they’re fed and they’re housed. Their children can go to college because of what we do. And that’s nothing to be ashamed of.

Nate: I’m not used to justifying my decisions.

Victoria: Don’t waste your time with that. Make your choices. Follow your path. Stick to your convictions. It’s the only way to not have regrets.

Adam: Well, I’m sure that was cleansing for you, seeing sally eviscerate me like that.

Chloe: You know, I don’t like seeing my friend get hurt. And, sorry, I’m not talking about you. I’m talking about sally. But I would like to make a suggestion.

Adam: Mm. I just love those.

Chloe: You did this to yourself. You pushed too hard. Your desperate pursuit made sally run in the opposite direction, and now she finally has room in her life for good things. So I — wait a minute. I guess I should really be thanking you, if I think about it. Wow. You know, well done. Keep up the good work.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

I said, thank you. I’m not e we’re finally getting down to the nitty-gritty. And if that’s the case, then you owe me an answer. If I don’t tell curtis about your theory that he may be trina’s biological father, are you gonna tell him yourself? Believe it or not, portia, I don’t want to blow up your relationship with curtis. You and I may never become the best of friends, but I want curtis to be happy. So do I. Then you can see that I’m right. It’s up to you to tell curtis yourself.

[ Laughs ] Hey, y’all. Um… hey, dad.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, here for a checkup? Well, my break’s over. Um… I’ll see you later, marshall. Okay. Man, I’m not here to get checked out tonight. I’m here to help. Uh, what does that mean? It means, thanks to epiphany, I have been asked to provide some music therapy to the G.H. Patients. Right on. Uh, that’s a good idea. Maybe you can start with the patient right here in this room who’s lucky to be alive. Now, I-I-I know this is upsetting. Just let me explain, okay? No need to explain. Okay? Working side by side with you kept me going during my trial. It gave me something to focus on besides my fear of being found guilty and sent to prison. I intend on working at that gallery until you’re back on your feet. Trina, listen to me. Whoever did this to me, whoever put me in this hospital is still out there, right? And as long as I’m a potential target, I have got to close the gallery. What? It’s just not safe there right now. Not for me and… not for you. I-I never said I wanted leopold taub to be my biological father. From what I heard, leopold taub was a misogynist tyrant, and mac, who raised me as if I was his own daughter, is the absolute best. So I think if mac were your dad, that would be a huge step up for you. Okay. Listen, I’ve always lived life on my own terms — no strings, no expectations. So let’s just say that the last thing I need is having a cop for a dad. What does mac’s job have to do with anything? I think it has to do with everything. So you’re behind society setups? I’m doomed, I tell you, destined to rot in a federally funded super-max. Okay, wait, wait. Calm down, spinelli. Everyone knows that you are prone to exaggeration. So what, you used your cyber skills to create a matchmaking service. There’s nothing illegal about that. Except when there is. Don’t you see? My one and only child is gonna grow up seeing daddy on visitation days. And trust me when I tell you, orange is not my color. Okay, no, no, no. Stop, stop, stop. Stop, stop. Please. Tell me everything, and just start from the beginning. Before or after I violated the computer fraud and abuse act? I asked you a question, michael. What do you care what happens to dex? Because he was on the scene either before or after all three attacks. And your point is? Look, we both know what you’d do to someone you suspected of targeting your friends and family. As you can see by my tools, I have options. You can answer my questions and we can proceed the easy way. Or you can play tough guy, keep evading, and we can do it the hard way. Really makes no difference to me. Sooner or later, you’re gonna start talking.

Okay, to be clear, I’m not taking sides here, but I do know a little bit about what it’s like to come from a family that you need to live up to — or live down, one of the two. You see? I’m not the only one who’s leery about family. Look, I-I assume you’re talking about the quartermaines. I know they treated you unfairly, but aren’t you still guided by the memory of your father? Sure. And other things. Okay, we’re gonna circle back to the other things later. My point is, if you give mac a chance, I promise, cody, you will not regret it.

[ Chuckles ] I take it there are no updates on diane miller. She’s still in surgery. Mac, you’ve been here for hours. Come home with me. I can’t do that. Okay. Well, then how can I help you? If you really want to help… anything. Yes. Tell me what happened after I got the call about the attack on diane and left you at the metro court with cody bell. I have a better idea. Come on. What exactly am i supposed to tell curtis? That, according to you, he may be trina’s biological father? Curtis asked me that question years ago. And what did you tell him? I told him, no, he wasn’T. And you know that for a fact? What I know for a fact is that curtis and i wouldn’t be the only ones affected by such a thing. Trina is marcus’ whole world. I realize that. Do you really? Because when things were truly bleak with marcus, the thought of trina is the only thing that kept him going. And trina adores him. You remember how badly she was grieving when she thought that he had been killed. I will not turn their world upside down because you — you keep inserting yourself into my life. Into curtis’ life, when he’s made it very clear that you have a minimal role in his. Curtis: Wow. Look at that. Good as new. Mm-hmm. Even better. Them punks who tried to steal it from me did me a favor. Leon purdee — he fixed it up some kind of good. Look how she shine. And wait till you hear how she sound. Sweeter than tupelo, mississippi, honey.

[ Chuckles ] Um, dad, are we still talking about the clarinet? Or you talking about epiphany? Man, I barely get to see that woman, alright? She — she busy studying for them mcats. I don’t know. The way she was smiling when y’all walked in, I don’t think epiphany’s ever too busy for you, dad. Alright, what about you? Mm-hmm. Uh, what about me? I figured by now you and portia would have set a wedding date. What’s the hiccup?

[ Exhales deeply ] Hmm? My dad has taught me to stand up to bullies, and my mom has never been afraid to do the right thing, no matter the cost. That is very commendable. But we’re not talking about a schoolyard bully here. We’re talking about a killer. And I could never live with myself if something happened to you. I understand there’s a dangerous person out there. But I carry pepper spray with me, always. I never miss my classes at pcu. Why does the gallery have to be any different? Oh! I forgot to tell you the exciting part. I helped you get a different internship. What internship? Only the most prestigious one offered by the port charles museum of fine art. The murphy-katz foundation fellowship? Mm-hmm. At the chuck? I was too late to apply. I couldn’t have gotten it this year. Well, this letter says differently. Frank, you go ahead and go take a break. You telling me I can’t protect my own family now? My — my problem’s with how you’re protecting your family. You’ve made it clear, michael, how many times, you don’t want me in your life. Unless you’re rethinking that. Then we can talk. I figured. But make no mistake the kind of father you’re gonna be taking back. He’s the kind of guy who’s gonna make sure his family’s safe, no matter what you think. I’m gonna make mistakes. You don’t have to agree with everything I say, but I am who I am, and I’m gonna do what I’ve always done. And that’s make sure that you, willow, your kids, your mom are safe! And I’m gonna make sure… …that nobody that I care about again… is left to bleed. And I’m sorry. I don’t give a damn if that offends your delicate sensibilities.

You and I have clearly led very different lives. Because in my experience, when someone promises you something that is absolutely guaranteed, that just means you’re gonna be disappointed — every single time.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Let me guess. The hospital needs you? Something like that. I got to go. Um, hang in there. I understand. Sometimes family can be a pain.

[ Scoffs ] Oh, austin? Hi. Uh, we know it’s late, and we don’t want to wake up the kids. Is this a bad time? I think that depends who you ask. Excuse me. Hey. Um, you — hey, maxie. We just want — uh… oh, you’re here.

[ Door closes ] Okay, now that I know that you’re not exaggerating and you might be in real trouble, can you please back it up and just walk me through it? You — you — you may understand this better than anyone. You know, ellie and i had just parted ways when jason was killed. Right. And I’m self-aware enough to know that I’m — I’m quirky. I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. But to lose… two of my guiding lights in such a short span… I was lost. And lonely. And so those dating websites and apps that I had mocked when I was with ellie, I suddenly fell prey to. But no one that I met was ever… quite the right fit?

[ Sighs ] So few people have actually read stephen hawking or a wordsworth poem. Oh! [ Chuckles ] Shocking. A-a true connection, devoutly to be wished, is incredibly rare.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, I-I know. Dante and I know how incredibly lucky we are that we have found each other. Yeah. Alas, I have not had that same good luck. Um… so I built a better… mousetrap [Chuckles] If you will. I wrote an algorithm… that takes a subject’s personal data and transforms it into a unique, completely objective profile and then matches them with their mathematically perfect fit. Okay, I-I may be lost here, but this sounds like an amazing matchmaking service. Yes, my invention might be worthy of a nobel prize for love. If only… if only what? How are you breaking any laws?

[ Sighs ] I realized that in order to find someone’s perfect match, I needed to cast a wider net of possible matches. Like, what good would it be if someone’s perfect match wasn’t a member of society setups? So in order for this to work, I had to have access to the digital footprint of the lovelorn… …all over the world. Wait. What are you talking about? Are you saying that you learned how to hack everyone? I’m equally proud and somewhat horrified by my invention, which I call cupid’s arrow. The program can penetrate every password, every firewall so that I can learn all the aspects of someone’s life, right? Mm-hmm. So, I mean, not — not just their favorite color and, yes, their social security number and bank account, but… what kind of ice cream they prefer, right, what teams they root for, are they online at 3:00 A.M. I mean, literally every aspect of someone’s life. Yeah. Wow. Spinelli… you’re screwed. Portia and I, well, we hit a few speed bumps on the way to the altar. Boy, I hope you’re not considering letting that girl go. Of course not, dad. It’s — it’s just that, um… well, technically, uh, jordan and I are still married. What?! How is that possible? There was a mix-up with the divorce papers, so they never got filed. God. Once it’s worked out, we’ll b– dad, I got to go, but good luck with the music therapy.

[ Sighs ] Is everything okay? I don’t know. You tell me. “The port charles museum of fine art is pleased to offer you a murphy-katz foundation fellowship for fall semester at pcu.” I don’t know how to thank you.

[ Laughs ] It was my pleasure. It was my honor. But, you know, it, um, wasn’t originally my idea. Curtis is the one who set all of this in motion.

[ Knock on door ][ Door opens ] He is the one you should thank. I didn’t do this. Let me go. Please.

[ Knock on door ]

[ Groaning ] Let me guess. Our guest wants an upgrade. More like an early checkout. He’s not going anywhere. So what do you think? Time for a break? I could use some fresh air. Good. You’re not going to protect anyone by finding a-a convenient scapegoat, some unlucky guy you can blame based on the flimsiest of circumstantial evidence.

Regions life banking makes it possible – if you’re interested.

Let’s talk about the if in life

regions bank – embrace the if in life I know there’s conflicting informationabout dupuytren’s contracture. I thought I couldn’t get treatment yet? Well, people may think that their contracture has to be severe to be treated, but it doesn’T. If you can’t lay your hand flat on the table, talk to a hand specialist. But what i f I don’twant surgery? Well, then you should find a hand specialist certified to offer nonsurgical treatments. What’s the next step? Visit findahandspecialist.Com today to get started. Me? No. Absolutely not. This is not an ambush. I just thought a visit with maxie would take your mind off the investigation. I was just leaving anyways. That is, of course, unless the chief of detectives still considers me a suspect. No? Okay. Cody, wait. Uh… mac, you asked me what happened after you left the metro court and I was still there with cody. Well, the truth is, we talked. Okay. Okay, I’m listening. This is your chance, cody. Man up. Okay, fine. Um… when I found out you were asking questions about me, I assumed it was because you were trying to nail me for attacking ava jerome. But then, thanks to your wife — please call me felicia. Thanks to felicia… I realized you were asking questions because you used to be involved with dominique stanton, who’s my mother. And you wanted to know if… if you’re my son. Dr. Gatlin-holt. Amy, hi. What are you doing here? I didn’t see your name on the work schedule. Right, I’m — I’m covering for somebody. I forget who. Excuse me. Mason, you don’t get to summon me like this. I don’t work for you. Easy, cuz. You’re right. You don’t work for me. But we got the same employer, remember? Yeah, I quit that. That’s the thing about a family business. You don’t get to quit. And tonight, it’s your turn to do some heavy lifting. Have you asked yourself what happens if you say nothing? Things will go on as they have been. That’s wishful thinking.

[ Sighs ] Curtis doesn’t just share a home with you. He loves you and your daughter. Which means that nothing has to change. And have you asked yourself what happens if curtis finds a reason to suspect that trina’s his daughter, too? Sure, you don’t have to answer my questions, but you won’t have that luxury with curtis. I know from my own experience how curtis deals with secrets and lies. And I’m telling you, don’t repeat my mistakes. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but one day, this will come back to haunt you. Stay out of my business, jordan. I’m gonna handle my life my way. Jordan: Portia? I can’t predict what will happen if you come clean with curtis. But I know for sure how it’ll go if he finds out on his own. Did you tell her about the fellowship? I did. I couldn’t wait. I needed something to lift her spirits after telling her that I’m closing the gallery. I don’t know what to say except thank you. Well, like I said, it was a team effort. Oh. My mom has never told me that you were into art before. I’m more into keeping you safe. What does that mean? Well, it means that, um, ava and I had a conversation about the gallery and how it lacks proper security. But such is not the case at the chuck. Do you mind if curtis and i step outside for a talk? Yeah. Of course.

[ Door closes ] Hey, trina. What’s up? I appreciate the opportunity, but I can’t accept the fellowship. I barely know dex. But I’ve seen the way he acts around you. Yeah? How’s that, michael? Like a dog… oh, like a dog, right. …Who’s been in a shelter for too long and finally found a home that makes him eager to please you. So killing your cousin brando makes no sense. Yeah, well, you know, I don’t know. I mean, look, there’s been a few people that I’ve done really good things for, and they’ve turned their back on me. So we’ll just see how this shakes out. What does that mean? I want the guy with the hook! That’s it! That’s exactly who you want, the guy with the hook, not some wannabe who was willing to deck me because I was talking back to the boss. Look, what if you’re targeting dex and that leaves the real killer out there with a free pass and someone else from the family that you claim to love is next on his list?

Setups down now before it’s too late. No, I — I know that’s the right thing to do, but — but what? There is no “but.” But my program actually works. I mean, you should see some of the testimonials that come across zelda’s desk. Okay. Yes. My desk. Mm-hmm. Zelda’s just a figurehead. That’s not even her real name. Anyway, people, they — they are grateful. They’re — they’re happy and they’re satisfied romantically and in every other way because of me. Is the money that good? Well, yes. But it’s not just that. It — I feel like in some small way, I’m helping to change the world for the better. Okay, well, why don’t you tell that to britt westbourne and her string of losers? O-okay, that — that was an earlier version, a beta version. I’ve refined the program. Oh, you have? So you’re saying that britt’s perfect match is cody? Mac: It took me a while to accept the possibility that you could be my son. But I’m not afraid of it anymore. But it sounds like you are. Why is that? Who says I’m afraid? I’ve been around long enough to recognize when someone is hiding something. Oh, come on, mac. You can’t seriously think cody is some sort of serial killer. I’m not accusing him of having a hook up his sleeve. But you are a card player, right? Who told you that? Yeah. Okay. Yeah. I mean, if the stakes are high enough, I’ll play, yes. What are you playing for now? Yeah, okay, I think I’ve had enough of this. You could do a lot worse than be a member of this family. Ask maxie. Eh, they’re alright. No, I’m kidding. My family is the best. And there are even more of us. So what have you got to lose by finding out? But when this is over, I’m done. Do you understand? Done is done. All my debts will have been repaid. It’s cute that you think it works like that.

[ Chuckles ] Amy: Dr. Gatlin-holt? Showtime, buddy boy. Hello, sir. Amy, let’s get this gentleman an exam room, please. Okay. I’ll call for an orderly. Uh, you know what? Um… I’ll — I’ll take care of it myself. If you say so. I do. Can you walk? Yeah, I think I can manage. What’s your name? Gordon. Hey, gordon. Let’s go this way, okay? Hey, trina, trina, look. The murphy-katz fellowship is very prestigious. It is prestigious, but that’s not the issue. I can’t leave ava right now. The gallery needs me more than ever. Well, ava said that she was gonna close the gallery until whoever attacked her is caught. So what’s this really about?

[ Sighs ] You didn’t ask me first. That’s fair. Trina, I was trying to do something nice for you while keeping you safe. Ava realizes that the guy with the hook is still out there, and it’s not safe for either one of you. Okay, I understand that you meant well, but why didn’t you talk to me first? I am a sophomore in college. I live at the dorms. I’m not a kid. I understand that. All I could think about was you working late nights at the gallery and no one there to look out for you. I look out for me. I know you had good intentions, curtis, but you don’t get to make decisions about my life. My dad doesn’t even get to do that anymore. And you’re certainly not my dad.

[ Footsteps approach ] Jordan: How’s it going? Uh, yeah, good. I’m just going over the forensics on ava’s injuries. Do you realize how much blood she lost? About 1 1/2 liters. Yeah. So her attacker would have been covered in her blood. That would be my assumption, yes. Is this about a potential suspect? Yeah, dex heller. I thought you already questioned him. I did. And? I don’t think he’s our guy, but… there was that sound that brando said he heard right before he was stabbed. Yeah, some sort of metallic clicking. Yeah. What about it? Josslyn heard the same thing in the alley behind charlie’S.

[ Grunting ] You’re working too hard, my friend. It could be the death of you. Dex is my employee. If he’s innocent, then he’s got nothing to worry about. Sorry, boss. Josslyn’s here. Let her in. I told you he’d see me. Hey. Oh, I’m so happy you’re here. Um… I need to see dex.

Finding out I might be a part of a whole new family… …it’s a lot to take in. You know, I missed out on a lot growing up. Things that I wanted I couldn’t get. And as soon as they seemed like they were within reach, they always turned out to either be wrong or just a complete disappointment. So, [Chuckles] Yeah. I don’t know if I really want to go down that road again. Okay, look, I know I’m not completely objective here, but you could do a lot worse than being related to mac. I mean, if you are a part of this family. And I am wildly prejudiced, but I’m not sure you could do any better. I-I mean, the three of you do look pretty cozy, but still, it — but still what? What difference does knowing make? Could make all the difference in the world. So let’s find out for sure. Ava: So what’s the latest? When can I get the hell out of here?

[ Chuckles ] You’re that anxious to get home, huh? Home? Don’t even know where that is now. Well, they say that home is where the heart is. Yeah, well, for now, I would settle for a breath of fresh air and a little moonlight. I think that can be arranged, maybe even with a little jazz music thrown in. That sounds heavenly.

[ Laughs ] I don’t know what I just walked in on here. Just a difference of opinion. Curtis was trying to help me, which I appreciate. But it wasn’t his decision to make. And I understand why your daughter feels this way. But, trina, I’m not gonna apologize for wanting to keep you safe. If I overstepped my boundaries, I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what your dad would have done. When your mother and i finally tie the knot, I’m gonna be your stepdad. Honey, that comes with responsibilities. So you think dex’s army dog tags could have made that metallic rattling sound that both josslyn and brando heard? Yeah, I mean, it’s a possibility. On the other hand, josslyn is pretty positive that when dex found her and ava at the quartermaines’, he was wearing a clean white t-shirt. And if he was ava’s attacker, he would’ve been covered in her blood. What if he ditched his clothes? I thought about that. So I got people re-canvassing the quartermaine property. And I got a search warrant to, uh, check dex’s apartment. You don’t sound optimistic. Ah, the timing is off. And josslyn was pretty positive that she doesn’t think dex could have done it. Does she have proof to back that up? No. But she does have good instincts. And I think in this case, her instincts could be right. Sonny: Have a seat. So why do you want to see dex? Who is he to you? When I found ava stabbed and bleeding at the quartermaines’, I screamed for help, and dex was the first person to show up. And he said that we had to get her to the hospital and we didn’t have time to wait for an ambulance. And that is the difference that saved ava’s life. And I heard that he left the pcpd with you. Dex works for me. You know that. Well, I also know that dex was near all three of the attacks, but he’s not the person that you’re looking for. What makes you so sure? When dex came over to help me with ava, he was wearing a clean white t-shirt. Of course, when we got to G.H., We were both covered in blood. But if dex had been the attacker, he would’ve had ava’s blood on him from the start. Could’ve changed his clothes, right? I don’t think there was time. I found ava moments after she had been attacked, and dex showed up a minute later. He didn’t do it, sonny. He didn’t do it to ava, brando, or diane. Now, where were we? Right. You were gonna answer some questions.

[ Grunts ]

epiphany: Hear it’s a full moon tonight. Yeah, I bet it’s shining over spoon island, too. Oh, I doubt it. Nothing ever really shines there. Not for long, anyway.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Clarinet playing ] Well, I guess I have a lot to think about. Trina, please don’t turn down this amazing opportunity because you’re mad at me or because I tried to help you. Noted. Be honest. Did I overstep? I-I don’t — I don’t really know. I mean, you know that I like taggert. I’m not trying to take his place. I just want trina to know that she can count on me, too. Mm. As we start to build our family together.

[ Chuckles nervously ] Oh. I know from my own experience how curtis deals with secrets and lies. And I’m telling you, don’t repeat my mistakes. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but one day, this will come back to haunt you.

[ Knock on door ] Come in. Hey, uh, just wanted to let you know I’m gonna take off for the night, but I’ll have my cell handy if you need anything. There’s nothing more we can do tonight except hope that diane wakes up after surgery and can tell us something else. Mm. I’ll see you in the morning. Yeah. Good night. Come on, spinelli. T-tell me the truth. If your algorithm is so foolproof, how could it match two obviously mismatched people like britt and cody? My program is not at fault. Forgive me, dear samantha. I know cody is an old friend of dante’S. But he coerced me into matching him with britt, and I am not sure his reasons were entirely romantic. There’s only one way to answer the question of whether or not you two are father and son, but you both have to agree on it. It’s time for a dna test. Gordon, before we get started, is there anything I need to know about your medical history? Uh… you don’t have to worry about all the doctorly motions, cuz. You know what to do. Gordon, why don’t you go ahead and lay yourself back down?

[ Groaning ] Lucky you. You’re not gonna feel a thing. It’s nice of you to look out for dex. I’ll let him know next time I see him. Frank, can you drive, uh, josslyn to carly’s or her dorm or wherever she’d like to go? That’s okay. I’ll make sure that my sister gets home safe. Thanks.

[ Scoffs ] Frank: Come with me. You surprised me. It won’t happen again. Stay away from me, freak. You have a somewhat limited range of motion, and I can always call for backup. At times, I really enjoy my work. This is one.

[ Knock on door ] What’s going on? We’re in a holding pattern. I got to do some fact-checking. Stay on call. Understood.

[ Door closes ] Saved by the bell. For now, anyway. Hm. Don’t you worry. I’ll be back to finish what I started.

[ Door closes ]

Diane: [Breathes deeply] Hello, victor. You’re looking well.

Victor: There something you need?

Diane: Well, I just haven’t seen much of you lately, not since you came by to say hello when I returned. But, um, I thought maybe we could catch up.

Victor: I recall I had two unfortunate occasions when I saw you. One was when you engaged in a slapping fest with my wife and the other when you crashed the Chancellor-Winters launching party.

Diane: Well, I’ve been on my best behavior ever since.

Victor: Really?

Diane: Mm.&

Victor: Good. Well, then I think that’s all the information you and I need to exchange, right?

Phyllis: Hey. This is interesting, seeing you two together.

Diane: Phyllis.

Phyllis: Hello.

Diane: Hello.

Phyllis: [Chuckles] I feel the need to sit down and watch. That’s all.

Diane: [Sighs]

Phyllis: [Clears throat]

[Whispering] What are you talking about? Do I have to ask?


Victor: I apologize, but i don’t recall asking anyone to join me.

Phyllis: Mm. Well, I’m not going to join you.

Victor: Ah.

Phyllis: I have to-go order. I’m gonna get it and leave. I was here earlier for a lunch meeting, but we didn’t really have lunch, did we?

Diane: Mm. We met up with Summer and Kyle.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Victor: How riveting.

Diane: Mm. Uh… oh, look, Phyllis, here comes your to-go bag. I certainly don’t want your lunch to get cold.

Phyllis: Oh, don’t worry. It’s gazpacho. I’m all good.

Diane: Well, I have a few things I’d like to say to Victor in private.

Phyllis: I’m sure you do. Um…I wish you luck. Good luck.

Diane: Why do I need luck?

Phyllis: Because he sees right through you, just like i do. Good luck.

Kyle: I’m afraid you got it wrong. Summer and I didn’t invite you to join us for fun.

Summer: In fact, it’s the exact opposite. This is serious, and it’s something that we wanted to discuss with both of you.

Diane: Oh. I-I see.

Phyllis: Okay, well, this doesn’t sound good.

Kyle: Summer and I want you to know we have two priorities — peace within the family and productivity within the business.

Phyllis: Uh, okay. Well, we’re on the same page. Those are my priorities, too.

Diane: And mine, as well. No question.

Phyllis: There’s nothing that I want more than to see, you know, Marchetti run smoothly.

Diane: And successfully. I hope you know how much i appreciate the opportunity you’ve given me.

Phyllis: Yeah, and it is my mission to make sure that all your dreams are realized with Marchetti.

Diane: The most important thing to me right now is family harmony. Being close to you is the only reason I’m here. I can’t tell you how lucky i feel. And it means everything to me to be accepted back into your lives.


Phyllis: Um… okay, just so I get this clear. So, if she does something, I get fired, too? That just doesn’t seem right.

Kyle: It won’t matter who said what or who did what to whom. You will both — both — be immediately removed from the company.

Summer: No questions asked, no excuses tolerated.

Diane: But —

Phyllis: Okay —

Summer: This is non-negotiable, period.

Kyle: We warned you from the beginning to stay out of each other’s way. You were told that any conflict between the two of you would be a deal breaker.

Summer: And now you know that we mean it. Besides, the two of you have limited need to interact at Marchetti anyway.

Phyllis: Okay, well, that’s not entirely true. Diane is writing the press release for my division, so I’m going to have to be around her.

Kyle: True. But if you can’t handle the times when you do need to interact, you shouldn’t have the job in the first place. It’s just that simple. Understood?

Phyllis: Summer, are you really…

Diane: Kyle, don’t you think this is a little harsh?

Kyle: Mom, we have a company to run.

Summer: And we’re both committed to its success.

Kyle: Hey, we are in the middle of a huge transition. Moving a company from Milan to Genoa City is a mammoth of an undertaking, and this is a big step for Jabot and my father so, this affects him as well.

Summer: We just don’t need these kinds of distractions.

Kyle: Like I said, you’re both doing great work in your respective jobs. Neither of us want to lose you. We want to see you succeed and be a part of this adventure. But we are done making allowances.

Summer: We’re done with the attacks and the accusations. This is your last warning. Are we clear?

Days Update Thursday, September 29, 2022

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

At the DiMera Mansion, Stefan asks EJ about it taking all night to determine he was justified in shooting Clyde. EJ is glad Stefan shares their family loyalty. Stefan acknowledges that he and Chad are not on the best of terms right now, but he’s still a DiMera. Stefan declares that EJ saved Chad’s life and brought Abigail’s killer to justice, so he’s forever grateful for that. EJ knows Abigail was very dear to him. Stefan admits he thought he loved her once, but it turned out just to be obsession. Stefan adds that he didn’t know what love was until he met Chloe Lane.

Ava goes to the DiMera Office and tells Gabi that she just heard the news. Ava asks Gabi if it’s true that Stefan DiMera is really alive.

Chanel comes out of the bedroom at Allie’s apartment and finds Johnny sleeping shirtless on the couch. Johnny then wakes up and asks what Chanel is looking at. Chanel comments that he lost his blanket and picks it up for him. Chanel asks if he slept okay. Johnny jokes about them not having the air conditioning on. Allie then comes out from the bedroom and tells Johnny hello and goodbye.

Gabi confirms to Ava that Stefan is alive. Ava calls it amazing and asks if Gabi is so happy. Ava realizes that when she thought she was hallucinating her dead husband, she was actually seeing Gabi’s dead husband who is actually alive which means she’s not crazy. Gabi responds that she’s not so sure about that.

Chad returns to Abigail’s grave with flowers. Chad says there is so much he wants to say to Abigail but he doesn’t know where to start. Chad then imagines Abigail appearing before him which makes him cry.

Gabi tells Ava that first she saw “Jake” at the DiMera Mansion and she passed out but Li said he didn’t see anything unusual. Ava questions Gabi trying to say that she first hallucinated Jake and then saw Stefan, asking what the odds are of that. Gabi decides that whatever happened, it’s best for both of them if she’s not crazy. Ava agrees. Gabi says she needs Li’s father to restore Ava’s shares and complains that Stefan is trying to take her shares away from her. Ava questions why he would do that when he’s her husband and she is the love of his life. Gabi says not anymore and reveals that Stefan claims he never loved her and doesn’t love her now.

Stefan tells EJ that he and Chloe never got the chance to see what would happen between them because Gabi arrived. EJ calls Gabi a duplicitious lowlife and he’s glad that Stefan agrees that Gabi needs to be ousted from DiMera. Stefan points out that EJ did mention his shares might not be enough. EJ confirms there’s still a chance that Li could restore Ava’s voting rights, so to be certain, they may need someone to switch sides. EJ thinks Johnny could be persuadable. Stefan questions EJ’s own son voting against him. EJ blames Ava and complains that his threats have only driven Johnny further in to Ava’s arms. Stefan advises EJ to think strategically. EJ says that he is. EJ decides he’s going to see Johnny and Ava with the plan to lie good enough that he can convince them both to switch sides.

Johnny questions Allie saying goodbye. Allie reminds him that she said he could stay for a night and it’s now been two. Johnny complains that he hasn’t found a new place yet. Allie blames for that while Johnny brings up the cost of rent. Allie suggests he go spend a night at the Salem Inn. Johnny questions how she’s treating him. Allie argues that she can’t do any more as he makes more of a mess than her son Henry and leaves dirty dishes and sweat stains on the couch. Allie adds that he could also stop being provocative towards Chanel. Johnny complains about it being hot. Chanel adds in that she’s not provoked. Allie questions if she’s taking his side. Chanel says she’s not but asks what’s wrong with a few more days of Johnny staying on the couch until he finds a place to stay. Johnny says that’s unless Allie is worried that Chanel will succumb to the powerful sexual chemistry they have always had.

Chad questions why Abigail is appearing before him. Abigail says that after all these months of trying to find her killer, he finally has, so she wants to know how he feels. Chad admits he thought he would feel relieved as he was so determined to get justice and that was all he cared about, but now that he has and they know who took her from them, he just feels empty inside. Chad doesn’t know what he’s living for.

Stefan tells EJ that it’s dizzy keeping track of everybody’s revolving relationships but he’ll get the hang of it eventually. EJ asks if he has any idea why Dr. Rolf kept him on ice for so long. Stefan says he has no clue other than the heart transplant. EJ asks if anyone else was involved as he gathers Kristen played some sort of role.

Li goes to Chloe’s room at the Salem Inn. Chloe assumes he’s here about Basic Black but Li says he just decided to stop in and see how she and her family are doing. Chloe calls that kind of him. Li calls it a horrible ordeal with Clyde Weston last night, especially for Nancy and says it’s a dreadful thing to happen on her wedding day. Li jokes that he breaks in to a cold sweat whenever he hears about wedding nightmares since he and Gabi are engaged, especially now that Gabi’s dead husband Stefan is alive.

Gabi tells Ava that EJ and Stefan are petitioning to have her shares returned to Stefan. Ava points out that Gabi did only have them because she was Stefan’s widow and now it turns out, she’s not. Gabi questions whose side she is on. Ava says she is on Gabi’s side for the time being because they share common interests. Gabi notes that if Mr. Shin can restore Ava’s voting shares then EJ and Stefan can’t vote her out. Ava hopes not because she doesn’t want her first day on the job to be her last. Gabi says she’ll still have six votes with Ava and now having Johnny on their side. Ava responds that she’s not so sure they can count on Johnny’s vote anymore.

Allie assures Johnny that she’s not worried about losing Chanel to him. Johnny says she could’ve fooled him. Chanel points out that she can speak for herself. Allie says she’s just responding to Johnny’s accusation of jealousy when the real reason she wants him gone is because she’s tired of his smelly, naked body taking up her apartment. Allie tells Johnny to go shower and get out. Johnny says fine and tells her to relax as he then goes to shower. Allie complains that Johnny is so infuriating. Chanel tells her that he’s just pressing her buttons. Chanel asks if Allie really thinks she has any reason to be jealous of her and Johnny. Allie asks if she wasn’t listening when she just said she wasn’t jealous. Allie then admits that she’s been a little bit thrown off, but it took Chanel weeks to decide which one of them she wanted to be with and now she seems totally fine with Johnny staying here indefinitely in his tiny underwear so she doesn’t know. Allie asks Chanel if she has a reason to be jealous.

Nancy enters Clyde’s hospital room where a cop tells her that Clyde isn’t allowed visitors. Nancy informs him that Rafe said it would be alright and she won’t stay long. Nancy tells Clyde that she just wants to know if anything between them was ever real and if he ever really loved her. Clyde responds that he told her he did time and again. Nancy doesn’t know why she even cares now except she thought it might help her better understand why she got involved with him in the first place. Clyde tells her to do whatever helps her. Nancy admits she was really messed up after losing Craig and she just needed somebody to make her feel desirable. Nancy adds that even after Clyde was arrested for possessing Abigail’s jewelry, she still believed his lies because that’s how much she needed him. Nancy states that Clyde killed Abigail and tried to kill Sonny, so she asks him if she would’ve been next.

Chad asks his vision of Abigail what he needs to do. She tells him to let go of his anger and guilt because there’s only one person responsible for what happened to her and that’s Clyde Weston. Chad brings up Clyde being on parole and says he should’ve been more careful and protected her. Abigail says she always lived in terror after what Ben did to her and that’s no way to live. Abigail points out that Chad almost died last night and asks if that’s what he wants. Chad says he could be with her. Abigail says that’s not his choice to make but Chad doesn’t think he can go on. Abigail tells him that he has to.

Chloe tells Li that it was quite a shock to learn that Stefan was still alive. Li asks her about Stefan claiming to still have feelings for her. Chloe confirms he said that and that seeing him was surreal. Chloe adds that there’s also no hope for them. Li asks if she’s certain since Stefan is a fascinating, charismatic man from a prominent family. Chloe points out that she already has one who she loves with all her heart and even if she wasn’t with Brady, she’d have a hard time going back to Stefan after he cheated on her with Gabi. Chloe is pretty sure that isn’t what Li wanted to hear, but tells him that if he wanted her to keep Stefan away from Gabi, that’s not going to happen. Li thanks Chloe and decides he’s taken up enough of her time. Li sends his best wishes as he then exits.

Stefan tells EJ that it’s all so hazy so he can’t remember anyone working with Dr. Rolf. EJ gets a text and informs Stefan that his shares are officially his for the taking, so he suggests they go retrieve them from Gabi.

Gabi wishes she could have seen EJ’s face when he thought Ava and Johnny slept together. Ava says it was a sight to behold but then EJ kicked her out and Johnny decided to go with her to the Salem Inn and slept on the floor. Ava notes that she and Johnny are still on good terms but admits that when she kicked him out, she felt bad and misses him. Gabi encourages Ava to go find Johnny, wrap her arms around him and tell him that she changed his mind and actually does want to sleep with him.

Chanel asks Allie if they are seriously doing this again. Allie says she sometimes has her doubts. Allie complains that Chanel admitted to still having feelings for Johnny. Chanel assures her feelings for Allie are deeper but it’s difficult for her when it seems like she doesn’t trust her. Johnny then comes out from the shower in just a towel. Allie asks if he ever wears clothes. Chanel tells Johnny to stop torturing his sister. Johnny says he will obey Allie’s orders and get the hell out. Chanel asks where he will go. Johnny doesn’t know and says he will figure it out and exits.

Johnny walks through the town square with his bag packed and runs in to Ava. Ava questions him still not finding a place to stay. Johnny says he stayed at his sister’s for a couple days but thinks he overstayed his welcome. Ava feels that’s not very sisterly of her. Johnny calls his family complicated. Ava asks where he will go now. Johnny guesses he should find an apartment, a job, and a life. Ava suggests he just come back to the Salem Inn with her.

Li goes to the DiMera Office and tells Gabi that he missed her last night. Gabi tells him that she stayed at Rafe’s and thanks him for giving her some time. Li knows it’s a lot for her to process to get engaged and then finding out that day that her husband is back from the dead. Gabi knows it can’t be easy for Li either. Li says he can be patient as she’s worth it. Li assures that he still loves her and wants to marry her, so he’s hoping she feels the same way. Stefan then arrives. Gabi guesses he’s there to take back his stock shares which Li questions. Gabi informs Li that Stefan and EJ are teaming up to oust her as CEO which Li had no idea about. Gabi asks where EJ is, figuring he wouldn’t want to miss this. Stefan says he’s filling out paper work while there is something he wanted to say to Gabi. Stefan states that he’s had some time to think since their last meeting and things are a little more clear in his mind, so there’s something he needs to say to Gabi.

Clyde tells Nancy that he never claimed to be one of the good guys but he swears that he wanted to be a better man for Nancy. Clyde calls her a special person and says while being in the hospital, he’s thought of her the most and how he hurt her. Clyde wonders if there’s any way she could forgive him.

Chad’s vision of Abigail tells him that he has to go on living, asking what would happen to their kids if they lost both parents. She knows Chad is suffering but pleads with him to remember all he has to be grateful for and to live for, especially their kids. Abigail states that every second she spent loving him is more precious than if she lived 100 years without him. She says the greatest gift he could give to her is to live his life and find joy and love again. Chad insists that there will never be anyone else. She encourages that he won’t feel that way forever and asks him to move on for her.

Johnny questions Ava wanting him to come back to the Salem Inn to stay with her since she was pretty definite about him leaving. Ava admits she may have been hasty and says it feels like fate that she ran in to him. Ava asks if he wants to come up and put his bag down upstairs.

Gabi asks what Stefan remembers. Stefan says it’s his feelings for Chloe. Gabi reminds him that Chloe doesn’t want him. Stefan argues that she will once he reminds her what they meant to each other. Gabi points out that Chloe is in a serious relationship with Brady now. Stefan says he’s aware but he’s not giving up on her. Stefan advises Gabi to move on with her life like he intends to do with his. Stefan then announces that he will be filing divorce proceedings as soon as possible. EJ walks in and declares that Stefan’s shares have officially been transferred back to him. Li complains that he should’ve been informed of this. EJ calls this his official notice. Stefan demands his shares while Li argues that they can’t do this. Gabi hands over her shares and complains that EJ is enjoying every moment of this. EJ responds that he enjoys things being restored to their proper place. Gabi argues that she’s still CEO. EJ says not for long. Li wants to throw them out but says it’s Gabi’s call because she’s in charge. Gabi has no idea what happened to Stefan, but tells him and EJ to get the hell out. Stefan says goodbye and walks out with EJ.

Chanel tells Allie that they’ve been going to bed mad the past two nights ever since their stupid fight about Johnny. Allie complains that it always comes back to him. Chanel knows she made things hard when she was choosing between them but says they have to get past that. Chanel says either Allie trusts her or she doesn’t. Allie says it’s Johnny that she doesn’t trust. Chanel argues that Johnny is over her and moved on to Ava. Chanel assures that she doesn’t want Johnny, she wants Allie as she then kisses her.

Johnny asks if Ava is sure. Ava says she is so they start to walk off together but EJ arrives. Johnny tells EJ that if he’s here to order him home, the answer is still no. EJ asks what if he asked them both to come back.

Nancy tells Clyde that what he did to her pales in comparison to him killing an innocent young woman, not to mention what he did to Sonny. Nancy says Clyde needs to ask forgiveness from Abigail and Sonny’s families, but agrees to pray for him because everyone deserves at least that. Clyde says he appreciates that. Nancy says goodbye to Clyde and then exits.

Johnny asks EJ what the catch is. EJ says no catch. EJ doesn’t know if Johnny heard what happened with Clyde last night. Johnny confirms he did. EJ guesses everyone has heard by now. EJ says it made him realize how important family is to him. EJ understands he’s hurt Johnny deeply and he needs to make amends as he’s pushed far too many people away and that stops now. EJ states that he and Chad have reconciled and he’s had a chance to get to know Stefan, so now he’s determined not to let any more time pass being estranged from his son. EJ asks Johnny to come back to the house where he belongs. Johnny asks what about Ava. EJ says she’s invited as well. Ava and Johnny question his sudden change of heart. EJ calls it a mea culpa for his unfair conclusions about Ava’s mental health. Ava mocks that as a gracious apology. EJ acknowledges that Ava wasn’t hallucinating seeing Jake and was seeing Stefan so she was not to blame for any confusion. EJ declares that the DiMeras owe Ava on a number of grounds, so he wants to start making it up to her. EJ asks Ava to come back to the house and insists his doors are open to the both of them. Johnny agrees to consider it but says he won’t speak for both of them. Ava decides they will talk about it as she and Johnny then head to the Salem Inn.

Stefan goes to Chloe’s room with flowers and gift bags.

Chad asks how he could ever think of loving someone else when Abigail still has his heart. She knows he will never stop loving her, just like she will never stop loving him or their children. Chad admits it helps that she lives on in their kids. She wants to know how specifically. Chad talks about Abigail living on in Charlotte’s kindness and sense of humor and in Thomas’s endless curiosity. She asks Chad to kiss her goodbye which he does. They say I love you and then Chad’s vision of Abigail disappears. Chad holds back tears as he kneels back at Abigail’s grave.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Sally: [ Sighs ]

[ Chuckles ] You beat me here.

Nick: Yeah, I did.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: Have a seat.

Sally: Thanks.

Nick: Really glad you said yes to this.

Sally: I always love having dinner with a colleague. Work’s really exciting right now, so there’s so much to discuss.

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

Adam: Hey there.

Chelsea: Oh. Hi.

Adam: How you doing? Listen, I’m actually glad that i into you.

Chelsea: Yeah?

Adam: I would like for you to reconsider my proposition. A little getaway with connor and me. Nothing major, just a weekend trip, and it doesn’t have to be an amusement park since that idea was clearly not working for you. And it’s not just about you. I think it would be good for the three of us. So, what do you say?

Victoria: We need to talk.

Billy: What’s wrong?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I went home to spend some time with johnny. I-I thought that we could just hang out, that he might need some reassurance or some comforting after the news we gave him, but he’s — he won’t even look at me. He won’t eat anything. He’s completely shutting me out.

Billy: I called him. I texted him. He’s not getting back to me at all.

Victoria: He’s holed up in his room, playing video games online with his friends. He’s got the door closed. I can hear him in there…

Billy: Well —

Victoria: …Acting like nothing’s happened.

Billy: Trying to distract himself.

Victoria: Yeah, I know that’s what he’s doing, billy. He’s furious with us, and this is his way of letting off steam. But this situation with chelsea is not gonna go anywhere. He’s gonna have to deal with it sooner or later.

Billy: Did you get anything out of him at all?

Victoria: No, of course not. Nothing new, except for the fact that he wishes that we hadn’t told him that chelsea’s his biological mom. He wants nothing to do with her. And, honestly, I feel the same way.

Billy: I don’t blame you.

Victoria: And get this — the woman had the nerve to barge into my office and imply that we’re not doing enough, and her helpful suggestion is that we all work together to nudge johnny into a relationship with her.

Billy: You got to be kidding. What is wrong with that woman?

Victoria: A lot is wrong with her. The whole episode was just insidious.

Billy: I talked to her, vick. I told her that he was very upset by the news and that he needed some space. I mean, I cannot believe that she went to you and kept pushing.

Victoria: Yeah, well, she did, and it was obnoxious. I had to threaten her practically to get her to leave.

Billy: I’m sorry that you had to go through that.

Victoria: I’m starting to think that this is only the beginning. I think we made a terrible mistake.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Diane: I hope it’s not a bad time.

Jack: No, the timing is great. I just poured myself a drink. Come on in.

Diane: Okay. I come bearing gifts. Well, actually, a gift, for harrison. He broke his favorite dump truck on our playdate and I found the exact same one and I thought i would get it into his hands as soon as possible.

Jack: Well, isn’t that nice? Harrison is already upstairs in his, uh, bedtime routine with the nanny, but I’ll make sure he gets this first thing in the morning and that he knows it’s from his dee dee.

Diane: Oh, well, thank you for that.

Jack: No sweat. For what it’s worth, he was in a very chipper mood when he said good night, so I think the worst of the broken truck trauma is behind us.

Diane: [ Chuckles ] Well, that’s good.

Jack: Boy, you’ve been in a spending mood today. First the gift basket for phyllis and now this.

Diane: Could we please not talk about phyllis?

Jack: Okay. I didn’t mean to start anything, especially since phyllis has agreed to a cease-fire. Though I’m not sure it’s because of the basket, no matter how artfully arranged it was.

Diane: Well, who knows what motivates that woman? And I’ve — I’ve given up trying to figure it out.

Jack: I’m a little surprised to see you this stressed. I thought you had agreed to accept phyllis at her word that war behind her. I mean, what changed since then? Uh, everybody seemed so optimistic.

[ Cellphone pings ]

Diane: [ Sighs ] Excuse me.

[ Sighs heavily ]

Jack: Okay, it’s obvious something is going on. Talk to me. What is it?

Diane: You’re right. I — I used the gift for harrison as an excuse to — to see you.

Jack: About what?

Diane: Well, maybe offer me some of that liquid courage, and I — I just might tell you.

[ Glass clinks ]

Billy: That really pisses me off. I mean, how could she mislead us on her intentions in that way?

Victoria: Seriously? This really surprises you, that a former professional con artist would lie to get what she wants?

Billy: I was fully convinced that the reason why she wanted us to tell johnny is that so he wouldn’t be blindsided.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] I knew it, billy. I knew that chelsea was gonna want more. I knew it in my gut, and then that’s why I asked if we could just take things slowly, to just not rush into things. That’s what I wanted, but I went against my better instinct. I went with the program, and now here we are.

Billy: Okay, I think we need to remind ourselves why we went along with chelsea’s request in the first place, and that’s because there’s a lot of people in our inner circle that know the truth about johnny. And he is old enough to understand, and it’s better that it comes from us and not a random person in a situation that can’t be controlled by us. And maybe that’s why he’s upset — because he feels everyone around him knew and he didn’T.

Victoria: Right. I know. I know. I heard the argument from chelsea. I heard it already. And it was fine in theory, but this is reality. I mean, I wish that I had been more adamant about waiting. I wish that I had just…

[ Sighs ] Because we answered questions that johnny hadn’t even asked.

Billy: Not yet, and there might be a day that he’s going to want to know where his genes came from or the fact that connor is his brother and not just his cousin.

Victoria: Billy, he may. He might.

[ Sighs ] We asked our son if he wanted to know who his biological mother was, and he said no. What if he preferred to go through the rest of his life keeping that door permanently closed? Did we ever consider that possibility?

Billy: [ Sighs ] If you’re wondering if I’m questioning our decision, yeah, I am. But all we’re trying to do is save johnny from feeling like we’re hiding something from him. Or that he was unwanted or abandoned.

Victoria: Yes, but now, instead, he just feels confused and he feels vulnerable because we forced him to face something that he explicitly did not want to. And all of it because it’s what chelsea wanted.

Chelsea: Why don’t you and connor make it a father/son trip? I’m sure he’d enjoy spending quality time with you since you parked him at the ranch with his grandparents.

Adam: I didn’t park our son, chelsea. I see him every day.

Chelsea: It wasn’t a slam, adam. You needed space from victor. I get it.

Adam: Something really is wrong, isn’t it? I’m guessing that caffeine and sugar aren’t going to help. So…how about I buy you dinner and we can talk about it?

Chelsea: No, thanks. I’m not hungry. And I don’t feel like talking. I’ve been talking a lot — all day, actually — and it doesn’t seem like anyone cares what i have to say, so…

Adam: Okay. Well, then do it for me. I could use the company, and maybe some good food will perk up your appetite.

Chelsea: I doubt that.

Adam: I would consider it a favor. I’m tired of sitting at the bar, eating alone, tired of room service. Besides, connor has been hounding me about this new console, some virtual-reality thing.

Chelsea: Yeah, he’s been nagging me about that, too.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Well, I’m a little leery about him gaming so much. It could cut into his studying time.

Chelsea: Yeah, I mean, i guess we could make it work. We just have to set strict limits. But I’m inclined to say no because a distraction like that can be a slippery slope.

Adam: Well, whatever we do, i think it’s important to present a united front.

Chelsea: Agreed.

Adam: Okay, well, tell you what — how about you come out for a bite with me and we will stick to connor, our favorite subject, and we will not venture into anything else. Promise.

Chelsea: Okay. For the sake of our son, I will join you.

Nick: Well, I got to hand it to you, sally. You managed to win over the marketing team, all those people who were calling for your head after you missed that very important meeting. And I’m just dying to know how you did that.

Sally: Mm. Simple. I was candid and up-front. I called myself out, i apologized, I took full responsibility, and then i dazzled them with my brilliant ideas and my endless charm.

Nick: Well, I have no doubt about that.

Sally: I actually learned that from you. I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that being honest felt like a nel but you have been very up-front with me since the beginning. And it was very refreshing.

[ Chuckles ] So I figured I’d give it a whirl.

Nick: Well, you nailed it.

Sally: I did, didn’t I?

Nick: Mm-hmm.

Sally: It’s been my M.O. For so long to always be working an angle.

Nick: Well, now that that’s all behind you, what is your plan for success moving forward?

Sally: I would like to change my whole approach and actually learn from my past mistakes and not just let myself fall into the same trap again and again.

Nick: Give me some specifics.

Sally: I have a tendency to be a bit impulsive. I like to take on a new challenge without really thinking things through.

Nick: You do that often?

Sally: [ Chuckles ] When I am overcome with inspiration, I have a hard time holding back.

Nick: Whereas I tend to do the exact opposite — overthink things. Sometimes it’s best, though, just to dive in, learn as you go.

Sally: Well, I guess that’s why we make a good team. You do you, I do me, and in the end, we wind up inspiring each other.

Now glossy hair starts

with your shampoo.

Sally: So, I hope I’m not venturing too far afield, but I’m curious about your past.

Nick: My professional past.

Sally: Well, yeah, since we agreed to keep this dinner strictly about business.

Nick: That’s right. We did.

Sally: Tell me about new hope. I know it was a passion project for you and you poured your heart and soul into that organization. You helped create something important and did some lasting good for the community.

Nick: Was there a question coming?

[ Both laugh ]

Sally: How has it been to leave that behind for the business world?

Nick: Uh, you know, the work we do at new hope is very special. I’m proud of what we built. When I went back to newman, i left it in very capable hands. But I’m still on the board, so it’s not like I walked away forever.

Sally: Understood.

Nick: Very happy where I am right now. I needed a change.

Sally: Well, I’m glad to hear that. I hope you’re not overworking yourself, though.

Nick: No. Coming back to newman was, uh… invigorating. And no one is more surprised than I am.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: You should know you needn’t bring gifts for harrison or fabricate some reason for talking to me.

Diane: Thank you for saying that. I’m still so focused on getting back into people’s good graces, I feel like I’m walking on eggshells half the time.

Jack: Okay, tell me what’s got you so wound up.

Diane: I need to know something, jack, and I need you to be honest with me. Have you abandoned the war against me, too?

Jack: Aren’t we past this?

Diane: No, no, not completely. I need to hear you say it, that — that you believe that I’ve worked hard to make amends for my mistakes, that — that I’ve changed, that — that you forgive me.

Jack: I am willing to say that I can forget the past and start a new beginning with a clean slate. And I’d like to think that would be enough.

Diane: [ Sighs ] But is it really a clean slate? You know, hit zero and reset, a — a total start-over?

Jack: The answer is yes.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: Unless what I overheard phyllis say is true, that there is something about your life in los angeles that could be your undoing.

Billy: I think it’s a waste of energy blaming chelsea. Our priority right now should be taking care of, johnny.

Victoria: Well, it’s easier to blame her or even blame myself for agreeing to it than it is to watch him suffer. I hate it.

Billy: I know. It’s the worst feeling in the world.

Victoria: I want to make it better for him, but I — I have no idea how.

Billy: Well, we’ll figure it out together. We’ll figure out a way to ease his pain.

Victoria: I think there’s a part of johnny that’s scared. I mean, the fact that we presented this to him without any warning, he thinks it’s for another reason. I know he’s not going to come out and say that he’s frightened, but I know him. He is.

Billy: Then if he’s scared that things are going to change, that his world is going to change, then we do everything we can to prove to him that it won’T. He is our son, vick. No matter what we tell him about chelsea, that’ll never change.

Victoria: I’ve told him that. And I’m going to keep telling him that. But how do I make him believe it? Not just know it and believe it, but how do I make him feel it?

Billy: I’m going to reach out to him and we’re going to hang out and we’re either going to talk about it or we’re going to not talk about it. We’ll do whatever he wants. And maybe it’s time that we have some family counseling, the three of us. Look, we can’t unring this bell.

Victoria: If only that were possible. But you’re right. We just have to keep the lines of communication open.

Billy: In the spirit of that, there is something that I should share with you.

Nick: Thank you. So, are you a chocoholic?

Sally: Yes. But not to the exclusion of anything else on this menu. The desserts here are fabulous.

Nick: Yes, they are.

Sally: You pick something, and I will just steal a bite.

Nick: Bread pudding with the bourbon sauce, two spoons, no stealing.

Sally: Perfect. Alright. My turn to ask you a question.

Sally: You just did, about my dessert preference. Sorry, but you have reached your question limit for the evening.

Nick: [ Chuckles ]

Sally: I’m kidding. Ask me anything. I am an open book.

Nick: But only about your career — because we are keeping this professional.

Sally: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Adam: Good evening.

Sally: Hello.

Nick: Adam. Chelsea.

Chelsea: Hi.

Adam: Well, enjoy your evening.

Sally: I don’t care what’s been said. He definitely knows.

Nick: Yeah.

Sally: Or at least suspects.

Nick: Let’s get out of here then. Let’s go get dessert somewhere else. That gelato place down the street’s really good.

Sally: And miss the bread pudding? Not on your life. Announcer: Type 2 diabetes?

Nick: Look, if this is uncomfortable for you with adam over there having dinner, let’s just get out of here.

Sally: I mean, just when i convince myself it isn’T… it is. Which is stupid because I’ve moved on.

Nick: You sure about that?

Sally: [ Chuckles ] Maybe I should try that forthright honesty I’ve been so eager to practice.

Nick: Yeah, let’s see what you got. Go for it.

Sally: I have made it clear to adam that he and I are through, that I’m focused on my work, that he hurt me, and that there is no way forward for us.

Nick: I know you told him that. And you told yourself that, too.

Sally: And yet it… this — it’s just complicated and confusing.

Nick: I mean, we better be careful. We’re getting very close to talking about non-business stuff.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Adam: Sally’s not wasting any time cozying up to the boss.

Chelsea: Whatever.

Adam: You just passed up an opportunity to take a dig at sally.

Chelsea: So?

Adam: Okay, this is not just a mood. Something is seriously wrong. What is going on, chelsea?

Chelsea: Okay, you promised we would only talk about connor.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Fine. Well, then let me try to raise your spirits by reminding you what an amazing kid he is. We both have screwed up, but he is the one thing that we have done right. And you were a hell of a mom, chelsea. I hope you hear that and you believe it because it’s true.

Chelsea: [ Chuckles ] I wish I could believe that. It feels like there’s a lot of things right with connor and I’m doing everything wrong with johnny.

Adam: Why are you bringing up johnny?

Chelsea: Earlier today, billy and victoria had a conversation with him. They told johnny I’m his biological mother.

Billy: I think you should know chelsea came by with a gift for johnny.

Victoria: She wants to buy her way in his life now?

Billy: I told her it was inappropriate and that now was not the right time.

Victoria: She thinks she’s gonna badger us into submission? Is that her plan?

Billy: Look, I get it. I know you’re upset. I was, too. But when I thought about it, I think maybe this is chelsea’s idea of an offering.

Victoria: What do you mean?

Billy: The gift. It’s a blanket. A baby blanket she had while she was pregnant with johnny.

Victoria: [ Scoffs ] She’s held onto it all these years, and now she just wants to force it on him?

Billy: Maybe she was trying to find a way to show him that he was always loved and that the decision to give up her parental rights wasn’t easy. But she did it because she knew it was best for him.

Victoria: This isn’t about chelsea and what she wants or needs, billy.

Billy: I understand that, but it’s still — she wants to let him know that he was always loved. It’s a positive message, isn’t it?

Victoria: No, I warned her not to use any subtle attempts to influence johnny. She won’t listen to me. Where do we draw the line? There it is, even from you — the lack of trust, the wondering if I’m hiding something, all because of some snarky remark from phyllis. No, I-I thought we put this subject to rest, but apparently not.

[ Glass thuds ] Will I ever get past all these doubts and suspicions?

Jack: I’d say that depends on you.

Diane: I have done everything that I can think of to prove that my intentions are good, that I — that I came back to genoa city for all the right reasons. But having to constantly defend myself about these — these never-ending innuendoes and accusations, it’s exhausting. I mean, I can’t go anywhere in this town without running into someone who wishes I’d stayed dead.

Jack: Diane, you have earned that reaction. You came back to a town where you made more than your fair share of enemies. You’re could have stayed in L.A.

Diane: No, I couldn’T. I had to come back because this is where kyle and harrison are. And you. The only people whose opinions of me I care about. The only ones who I thought accepted me. I mean, is — is there another shoe that could drop? I mean, I-I certainly don’t think so. But I live in fear that one of those enemies is going to find something that’s going to change the way that you and kyle see me, wh-whether or not it’s — it’s even true.

[ Exhales sharply ] I guess i just didn’t realize how, uh — how hard it would be to redeem myself, how long this battle would take.

[ Crying ]

Jack: I can see this has been tough on you. My advice? Take the clean slate kyle and i have offered you. Let that fortify you from here on.

Diane: Thank you. It means a lot. I appreciate you so much. You have the least reasons of anyone to make me feel worthy, believed, safe. And yet you do.

Jack: I’m glad that’s so.

Diane: Me too. Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Jack: When you asked for a reset, I was agreeing to a peaceful co-existence as kyle’s parents, as harrison’s grandparents, the two of us working together.

Diane: That’s all been wonderful, but —

Jack: It has. It has. I absolutely agree. But anything more than that, I… I just don’t want you misinterpreting my friendship for something else entirely.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Billy: I am fine with setting limits, as long as we don’t give up on johnny accepting chelsea because I don’t think that’s the right thing to do.

Victoria: I’m not giving up. I made it very clear from the beginning that johnny gets to decide, and he’s made his — he’s made his wishes very clear.

Billy: Look, vick, I’m not talking about putting the two of them in a room and letting them hash it out. He’s a 13-year-old kid. He’s processing a ton of feelings right now, but they might change, okay? It’s been known to happen.

Victoria: You know, I also made it very clear to you and chelsea that johnny is the one that drives any future relationship.

Billy: What —

Victoria: And she — she agreed to the ground rules, and now she’s the one overstepping. She is the one who’s taking it too far, too much, too soon. And I thought that you and i were in agreement on this!

Billy: We are.

Victoria: Chelsea changed our lives for the good when she stepped aside as johnny’s mother, and I will always be grateful to her for that. But she doesn’t get to decide this, and she sure as hell doesn’t get to force a relationship on our son that he doesn’t want!

Adam: Why would billy and victoria decide to tell johnny that?

Chelsea: Because I persuaded them to.

Adam: But why? And why now?

Chelsea: I didn’t want him finding out down the line that his biological mom lived in the same town and everybody knew about it except him.

Adam: I can’t — I can’t believe you didn’t tell me this. This is huge. And it affects connor, too. I mean, how could you not warn me about this?

Chelsea: I didn’t know if they’d even go through with it, adam, okay? I wanted to see how it would all pan out before I came to you. And don’t worry. I didn’t talk to connor about it. I wouldn’t do that without conferring with you first.

Adam: Well, thank you for that, at least.

Chelsea: Also, I promised billy and victoria I wouldn’t tell anybody until they saw how johnny reacted.

Adam: And?

Chelsea: It seems he’s upset. He doesn’t want me in his life. At all.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Nick: Alright, you want to talk about you and me or adam?

Sally: No. Shoptalk only. Nothing about the rest. At least, not tonight. Not now. Is that okay?

Nick: Yeah, of course. We’ll do whatever you want.

Sally: [ Chuckles ]

Adam: I realize how big this is for you. I had no idea that you were dealing with this. It must bring up a lot of stuff that you’ve kept buried for a long time. And I know what it took to bring johnny into this world because i was there. I know how scared you were. And how brave. Yeah, it was a complicated time. But I also know that you wanted to do what’s best for johnny. And that’s why you made the hard decision that you did.

Chelsea: Yeah.

Adam: I respected you for it then. But I also understand it’s not a choice that you make just once. You have to live with it for the rest of your life.

Chelsea: Adam, I’m not a bad person. I want to do the right thing. But it’s like I always make the wrong choice or — or — or love the wrong person or — or go down the wrong path. It’s like I’m — I’m searching for these answers, and I’ve convinced myself that I’ve found them, and then ultimately i realize that I haven’T. And I’m starting to think i never will.

If you have type 2 diabetes

or high blood pressure…

Adam: I really wish you would stop being so hard on yourself. You know, maybe you do need a fresh start somewhere away from genoa city. I mean, we both know how toxic that this place can be.

Chelsea: What about connor?

Adam: We can work something out when it comes to him.

Chelsea: What does that even mean?

Adam: I’m not gonna let you take our son away, chelsea. I’m — I’m never gonna do that. But we could come up with an arrangement. Okay, I want you to hear me when I say this. Connor needs you to be strong, healthy, and happy. You claim that you can’t find answers, but maybe you can’t find them here.

Chelsea: I can’t leave town, adam. I finally have the opportunity to potentially spend some time with johnny. You know? He just found out who I am.

Jack, I heard you come racing in. What does the matter, uh, Julie tell me, uh, is, is Doug still taking painkillers for his shoulder? What well known, not since last year. Why I found these on the floor.

Oh, well I don’t understand this because we never refilled the prescription. I think Jennifer did. Doug’s fine now and

Oh no, go ahead and tell me that Jennifer is taking painkillers again. I didn’t wanna believe her, but I think she’s right.

I swear I’m gonna make him paid it. Anyone who ever hurt you, anyone who ever even thought about hurting you, I.

I promise you. I promise you. Just a sweet girl.

Sorry. They hurt my baby.

Yeah. He’ll be with Abigail soon. Now. Chad won’t take long now. Yeah.

Are you all right? Just tell that time a bitch is bad.

Like sand through the hour, so are of,

It’s too bad he’s still kicking.

Looks like the rolls of reverse. Now, hog chap, how does it feel to be the one bleeding out in the grass this time? That is what’s called poetic justice. I’m glad I could provide that for you. Go to hell you first. Oh wait. How does it feel? Clyde? Knowing you are only moments away from damnation and there is nothing that you can do about it.

Agonizing, isn’t it? Not for me. I’m gonna relish every single second of it. We both are. When I found Abigail, she was still clean to life alone in the bedroom, who almost have felt like an eternity. Terrified every breath would be her last. Tonight. You are gonna pay back every single painful second. You hear me, Clyde?

Except in Abigail’s final moments, she was with someone that she loved. Someone that loved her. You will not be so lucky.

Ah, voicemail damnit EJ

reports are gunfire. The cemetery is where Abigail’s buried. Stay here. No way. I’m coming with you. Don’t argue. I’m. Go. I just got back to the police station. I spoke to Shawnee’s. My God. Hey jd, I gotta call you back.

Can you hear me?

Cough help.

What was that? I’m sorry. You’re gonna have to speak up. You can’t let me die. Did you hear something ej? Huh? Not a thing. I thought I did guess now. Must have been the wind. Must have been beautiful night, wouldn’t you say? So peaceful and quiet out here among the dead.

She wasn’t upstairs. She’s not in the kitchen. She’s not in the den. She’s not here. Jack, she’s not answering your phone. Well, maybe she put it on silent. Well, listen. Have you noticed any kind of change in her behavior recently? Well, yes. She’s grieving deeply over the loss of her daughter. We all are. Yes.

She’s changed. Damn. I went to voicemail. Uh, look, I need to go back and find her. I’ll go with you. No, no. Clearly you stay right here. You stayed with Doug. She might come home. All right. Thank you so much for all your help. I will let you know when I find her. Jennifer, we’re so worried about you. Was trying to call you.

Oh, sorry, I, I didn’t hear my phone. Oh, I don’t know where it is. I need to sit down. Jennifer. You all right?

Jennifer? What happened? Where have you been

when you stay with me? How you stay? You’re gonna be all right. You’re gonna make it okay?

Yeah. This is Commissioner Hernandez. I’m outside the police station right now. I need an ambulance right away.

Wish she’d bloody Hurry up. Have a Liverpool game on the dvr. I am no rush at all. Oh my God, is he? He’s alive. He’s.

Yeah, this is Detective Brady. I’m the Salem Cemetery and I got a gun check wound victim. I need, uh, medical assistance asap.

What the hell happened here? EJ as your lawyer? No, ej As your lawyer, I have to advise you not to say a word. You heard our detective mum’s the word and same goes for my brother as well. I’m sure Bell will also be representing him. Mm-hmm. I don’t need a lawyer. I have nothing to hide.

You were supposed to stay home, you said you weren’t feeling well. I wasn’t. I. Supposed to, then I spoke to Aha. Jennifer, look at me. Okay. You know that’s not possible, right? Yes, of course. I meant, I, I imagine speaking to Abigail, I was, I have just so upset that we haven’t found her killer. So I decided to see what was happening with Clyde when she, the police finally decided that Clyde is, He may have killed, couldn’t here, Jack, Like, look good.

Am I doing Just, just waiting here. So I, I decided I would drive to the police station and I, I would see what was going on. You drove in this condition. I’m, I’m, I was fine. I, I’m okay. I just started feeling a little dizzy, so I turned around and I came back. Thank, Thank God. Thank God you should have known Jack.

Please tell me did they catch him? Yes,

He murdered our daughter, Chuck. Tell me he has to answer for that. He will. The police are handling it. Jennifer, there’s something that we need to handle right now. God, what? What is it?


Oh, uh, okay. Remember what I said about it being a quiet night. Looks like I spoke too soon. What’s going on? Um, two ambulances just pulled in downstairs, so it looks like my break is officially. Okay, Doctor, get out your hair. I’ll see you back home, man. Yeah.

Oh, Michael Gwen. Once I spoke to Nancy about the vanilla after shave, I realized that, that the person who stabbed son and killed my wife wasn’t Craig. It was quiet and, and I was even more convinced after Ray told me Clyde’s Allen by fell. And so you decided to take matters into your own hands? Yeah, I did.

Oh, well, I got the gun for my family safe. I intercepted Clyde at the city hall and then I took him to the cemetery to Abby’s grave, and that made him from Fess Crimes Crimes, and he did it, Sean. He did it. He killed my wife. Why? Why do I just send a message to ej? Sort of, except Abby was in his original target.

She was in the wrong place at the wrong time. So when Clyde broke into our house, he didn’t intend to kill my wife. It was after yours. What?

I don’t understand and why would Clyde want to kill Bell? Several weeks before Abby died, Clyde plan to bug at Mansion. Mansion. It must been the night he came over claiming he wanted to go into business with. From that moment on, he was keeping tabs on it. He wanted leverage to use against me to keep me quiet about how he was responsible for my shooting.

Then Clyde’s Worst fear was confirmed when he heard a conversation between you and Bell. He heard me confide in her. I still cannot believe how reckless you are. Are you put my wife in danger. What is how stupid? He didn’t like Clyde was listening. Okay, And I wanted to help. Clyde wanted to send a message.

He wanted to show how easily he could get to e. Or anyone around him. Bella was living with us at the time, so he came for her there. Oh my God. Except you weren’t there. No one was, except for Abby. She had, she found him in the hall. She started asking questions. She was brave. Um, stubborn, you know, No nonsense.

She just knew too much. I’m so sorry, Chad. I, I don’t know what to say. Okay. So you got cly to confess. So then what happened next? While I was upset, as you may have guessed, he caught me off guard, knocked the gun away starting strangling me. I, uh, I just kept thinking what he, what he had done to Abigail and I picked up the gun and ended it.

EJ had no choice. Lyde was gonna kill Chad. She’s right. If EJ having to showed up, I would be with Abby right now. Okay. I’ve heard enough for now. If I need to hang down the hospital, see if I can get some answers at. Assuming he’s still alive, may relieve. No, not yet. Need you to stay here. I just have some more questions for you.

Okay. Let me know what you find out. I love.

What’s that prescription? Painkillers, Killers. I found them here on the floor.

The label says they’re Dougs. Yes, but Doug stopped using them a year ago. Never refilled the prescription, but about a month ago, someone did. What are you saying, Julie? What are you accusing me of? Jennifer, you had an addiction to painkillers years ago. Jack. Years ago. Sweetheart, I’m not judging you. I am not.

I need you. I need you to talk to me. Jennifer, please tell me the truth.

Have you been abusing pills again?

I think I’m gonna be single.

Oh, hey. Um, why went to Gwen? I’m not sure I, uh, found her outside the police station. She was on the ground, uh, non-responsive and, um, there were tire tracks nearby. Well, someone hits her and just left. It looks like a hit and run. Yes, we would do something like that. Well, we’ll find them. Because of now we have no witnesses, so we don’t know much.

Pretty much told you everything. Oh, come wait. Just Jenna, just about to come. Poor guy mean after Abigail. I dunno what he’ll do if you lose another daughter. Should I go check on Jennifer? No. No. Just give her a minute. Okay. What do you think? I,

It’s Rafe Rafe. Hello? Did youre Clyde? No, no. Shawn has a lead, but right now we’re waiting for an. Oh, well thank you for keeping in the loop, but, uh, I’m in the middle of something right now, so if you could just jack that. That’s actually not why I’m calling. Oh, what’s wrong? Uh, I’ve got some bad news. Jack is about when.

Feeling better? Yes. Thank you. Where’s Jack? Uh, Jack had to go and he wanted me to take care of you. He had to go winter. RA called from the hospital. The hospital, Gwen was brought into the emergency room earlier this evening. Gwe. What happened? I have no idea. Jack got that call. Hung up. Ran outta here.

He must be so worried. I hope that she’s

Gwen, She’s stable. Um, she has some broken bones and possibly a concussion, but. No internal bleeding and there doesn’t seem to be any damage to any of her major organs. So for now, she doesn’t need surgery. She regained consciousness. Like may I ask her some questions? Uh, no. She won’t be giving any statements yet cuz we have her sedated.

Okay. Sarah Jack’s not here yet. Um, would you be off? I sat Mr. I know he wouldn’t want it to be alone. Yeah, of course. Cool.

Okay. Um, I’ll see if we can find, uh, trash and, and we need to make sure that your story’s first when she hears. Do you think Chad and I will be charged with anything? No. Not if I can help it. Before you go. I went to apologize for what Sean was right. I put you in danger. I never should have told you about Clyde

if Clyde, he was there for you. Bell and I, I’ll tell you what I told Sean, Okay. You had no way of knowing that Clyde was listening. How could you and yeah, I practically forced it outta you. You aren’t good at that. Bottom line is you have no reason to apologize. I just wish that we would’ve, you know, that we could have stopped Clyde before a

Yeah, me too.

Hey, I just got your message EJ talk. Lied. Yeah, and according to him, he was just trying to save Chad’s. Where’s Weston now? Tr room five. Booking doctors. They extract the bullet. Now he’s recovering. Gwen Gwen, where is she? Is she okay? She’s sedated. She’s in stable condition. I mean, she’s, she’s pretty banged up, but it looks like she’s gonna be okay.

Why? Why did you do it? Why did you kill my daughter?

Just the way you like it, cold and bitter. Thank you,



It was my fault.

Ej, you don’t have to. No, don’t.

I knew ply was a threat to the family, and yet I kept it to myself. I should have put a thought to him. Immediately. Chad, I failed you. I failed Abigail, your kids. I failed the family and I never forgive myself. Chad, I am very sorry, but we’ve both made mistakes. And done things that we regret and there’s no point in keeping score.

Not now. That’s very generous of you. Before we clear the board, I have to thank you. Came to my rescue night, ej, and you saved my life.


You welcome brother.

Well, now that that’s out of the way, um, I guess I can tell you. Tell me why tonight. I didn’t do that for you. What do you mean? I just wanted to shoot him.

I don’t know what you’ve been told Mr. Deborah, but I’ve never harmed a single. On your daughter’s prairie little head. I should have done You be mad enough to admit you did. You know, I do believe it’s in my best interest not to say another word until I have an attorney present. Just fine. It’s fine by me because I, I don’t need to say myself.

When you did was a speakable evil Abigail, when she was a mother to two beautiful children. She was a wife. She was a daughter. And you stall it all away. It will haunt me and the rest of my family for the rest of my life. And I want you. To be haunted too. Whenever you close your eyes, I want you to see her.

I wanna see what you did and I hope it kills you slowly and painfully. And in your last moments when you’re dying, you won’t begin to understand a fraction of the pain that you cost us. Not a fraction bravo there Jack as a hell of performance. But you know, I think you better off. What did you say?

Let me see. Oh yeah, I can see her man. She was beautiful.

She’s not Angel Jay. That little slut cheated on my boy. No.

Hey, Gwen, it’s, it’s, I dunno if you can hear me, but I just wanted you to know your father’s on his way and until then, I’m gonna keep you. If that’s okay with you,

and I also wanted you to know that you’re gonna be right. Sarah says you’re very lucky that you and I both know that look has nothing to do with it. It’s tough as hell. One of the toughest women I’ve ever. That’s why in no time you’re gonna be up and complaining about the groty food and grumpy.

Sandra. Hey there, Alice. What’s going on? What’s she doing here? Where is he? Ah, you’re in a bit of a scuffle. Yeah. But you fought, Bly, took down several men twice your size. You’re a, at University Hospital. You were a victim of a possible hit and run. Who’s,

Hey. Sorry to interrupt. She just regained consciousness. That’s great. Hey, Glen, think you’d be up to answering a few questions? Sure. Okay, thank you. Listen, I just want you to know that I’m gonna do everything in my power to find the person that did this to you.

I should go, Jack needs me. No, no, no. Jack needs you to rest, darling. Jack needs. To take care of yourself. I’m fine, Julie. I’m fine. No, sweetheart, you’re not, Jack wasn’t around the last time that you started using painkillers, but I was.

That’s the reason we moved back into the house, Doug and me. Do you remember that? Or was to take care of you? I remember and I am grateful, but that is not what’s happening here. Jennifer Rose, you’re not fooling anybody, especially not me. You’ve been struggling. How long has it been?

A few weeks. Why didn’t you talk to. I was ashamed. You have nothing to be ashamed of. We don’t judge you. We wanna help you.

Maggie tried to help. Maggie knew about these bills? Yeah,

she, she found them in my purse. Mm-hmm.

It was, It was my accident. The bottle wasn’t full. I hadn’t taken any. She watched me throw them out. Then she took me to a meeting. Then I came back and I got them out of the trash and they took one. Then I took another in another.

Until the ball was empty.

Listen to me, Jennifer, we all love you very much

and after everything you’ve been through, I don’t presume to imagine the pain that you have been going. But I do know in this life there is nothing more tragic than when a parent loses a child, especially so son, So senselessly.

I know you’re struggling, darling. You’ve been struggling just to get through the name.

But remember, Your life is important to your life, how you live it, that’s important to all of us, and it’s especially important, those precious grandchildren of yours because with their mother gone, You, my darling, are the most important woman in their lives. They need you now. They’re gonna need. For a long, long time,

we all are.

Would you please give me a hug?

Yeah. Hey, you sure you’re ready?

My head’s finally starting to clear,

Gwen. Thank God you’re alright baby. Thank you so much for coming. Of course. Tell, tell me what happened. Yeah, we were just getting to that. So when you remember anything about tonight, Um,

I, I was, I was walking to the car park at the station. This car came speeding towards me. Oh my God, My God. Yeah. It, it didn’t swerve. It just, it happened so fast. Do you think it was,

That’s possible. I suppose. Could you see the driver?

What do you say? You get some sleep. Oh yeah. Thank you. Yes. And Julie, I am so sorry that I worried you and God, I cannot believe that I went driving in that condition that it’s just, it’s not me. You know that. I do know that.

It’s all such a blur. Well, I’m just so glad that you’re back home safe and sound. You know, you’re very lucky that you didn’t hurt yourself or anyone else. Let’s go darling.

No, I, I didn’t see the driver. I was God, the headlights. They, they blinded me and

Daddy would do something like this and then just drive off and outside of a police station.

I’m just sitting here Jack. What good am I doing? Just, just waiting here. So I, I decided I would drive to the police station and I would see what was going on. You drove in this condition.

Chad told me that Abigail wasn’t your intended victim, that you were planning on killing my.

I do believe I have the ride to remain silent. Now you do. And I’m gonna read you your rights really soon, you know? But first I want you to know one thing. Can’t wait. I’m never gonna rest until you’re back in Statesville and this time. You’re never getting out.

Well, how did it Gorok? Uh, unfortunately she’s gone for the day, but I will speak to her on your behalf tomorrow morning. Have you talked to Sean? Yes. Um, Clyde is gonna live, That’s a disappointment, but he will be shipped after Statesville for the rest of. And you know the truth and hopefully that brings you a little peace of mind.

Oh, peace of mind.


Abby finally be, finally gets some justice. She would want that. Yeah. Especially. Our kids different. All of us. Sorry.

 [ Door opens ] Portia, what are you doing? Curtis told me about your little “divorce papers” chat. Jordan, how dare you? How dare I what? Keep insinuating yourself into curtis’ life. Trying to make him doubt me. If curtis doubts you, then you’re doing that all on your own. Ava? What, are you trying to break out of here? Hi. Come on. You should be in your room. Yeah, I couldn’t agree more. But my sadistic doctors tell me they won’t release me until I can do a couple of laps around the nurses’ station here on my own, but… would you mind helping me to that bench there, please? Not at all. Thank you. And when you catch your breath, I’ll lead you back to your room. Mnh. Oh, that room. I hate that room. It’s just a constant reminder that I’m here at this hospital because somebody tried to kill me. Well, ava, you’re not the only one. Yeah, I know. I heard. Brando corbin. And diane miller. She was attacked earlier tonight. Hey, I’m really sorry about our change of plans. No, don’t be sorry. I really like a nice, quiet evening with you. Well, james and bailey lu are fast asleep. And once georgie gets settled, we will have this place to ourselves. I like the sound of that. Are you okay? I will be, once diane is out of the or and making a full recovery. Yeah, me too. I haven’t heard anything yet. So…diane was attacked in brando’s garage? Well, that’s what my mom said. She and gregory found her. Oh, man, that must’ve been rough. I know that diane and alexis are best friends. So, I mean, how — how’s your — how’s your mom doing? Well, as usual, my mom doesn’t want to talk about herself because she’s so focused on diane. She’s actually at the paper right now determined to do something, anything that will help. My mom did want me to check in with her if there were any updates. What was diane doing in brando’s garage alone? You know, all I know is that diane wasn’t alone. Dex was with her.

[ Knock on door ] Yeah? Detective? Yeah? Your stepsister is asking to speak to you. Uh…alright, just give me a minute, and then you can send her in, okay?

[ Door opens ] Josslyn jacks. Hey. Uh, can you get this to the desk sergeant, have him take it to the commissioner? You got it thank you. Hey. What’s, uh — what’s going on? It’s about the attack on brando. Oh, joss, I already told you, I-I can’t talk about it. I know, and I’m not here to ask you to share your evidence. Okay. I’m here to share some evidence of my own.

[ Grunting ] Boss. You got this all wrong. Why should i believe anything that comes out of your lying mouth? You told me to lock up. Okay, that’s when I found her. I swear. You’re lying to me again! You obviously don’t take me seriously! That’s a huge mistake! Huge! A dental tool is round for a reason.So is an oral-B. Round cleans better by surrounding each tooth. So clean, you’ll feel like you just left the dentist. Oral-B. Brush like a pro. Pain hits fast.So get relief fast. Only tylenol rapid release gels have laser drilled holes. They release medicine fast for fast pain relief. And no w get reliefwithout a pill with tylenol dissolve packs. Relief without the water. What does that even mean? Now, what am I doing that’s so untrustworthy? You know what I’m referring to. I am so sick of your pointed comments, your little jabs you keep throwing at me. If there’s something that you want to say to me, you come right out and you say it. Alright, then. Is curtis trina’s father? Trina: Ava. Hi. I hope you didn’t get out of bed to wait for me. Mnh-mnh. No, I was ordered out of bed.

[ Chuckles ] Hey, curtis, do you think that, um, trina and I could have a few minutes to speak in private? Trina, where are joss and cam? I spoke with rory. He said he left you all at hatchet range. Oh, they had things to do. Trina, there is a lunatic stabbing people in port charles. You can’t be walking around here alone. Ahem.

[ Clears throat ] Hi. Um, is georgie all set? Yes, uh, she’s all tucked in and ready for her good night… kiss from mom. Okay, well, promise me you’ll let me know if there’s any news on diane. Of course. Spinelli, for what it’s worth, I’m sorry about your friend. You’re very kind. Spinelli, buddy, good to see you. I wish I could say the same. State your business. Well, maxie jones lives here, right? I need to talk to her. Okay, uh, that’s not going to happen.

[ As gandalf ] You shall not pass. So, uh, dex had diane’s blood on his hands? Literally. I mean, that makes sense. He — he did help josslyn get ava to the hospital, so maybe he was just, you know, trying to help diane. But where was he when diane was attacked? He said he didn’t see anything. How is that even possible? Do you know if — if, uh, dex was brought in for questioning? No, I’m — I mean, I assume he will be, but I don’t — I don’t know for sure, no. Well, let’s just hope that diane… comes through. Yeah, especially since brando went up against the same attacker and lost. I was in the alley behind charlie’s just before brando. I mean, why him and not me? Look, joss, there’s no reason to believe that you were or are a target, okay? Ava, brando, and diane all have ties to sonny. So do I. Right, but that link to sonny is just one avenue of the investigation. That’s why I’m here so late. I’m trying to figure this all out. But what’s the evidence you said you got? I remembered something that happened right before I left the alley. Maybe it’s not important. Well, why don’t you tell me what it is? We can figure out if it’s important or not. Did you see something? No. It was something that I heard.

[ Grunting ]

[ Coughs, breathing heavily ] Sonny: Okay. That’s enough. For now. I told you… everything. I disagree. I’ve never been able to shake the fact that you were hiding something, but I gave you the benefit of the doubt. And now you were either nearby before or after three attacks. Can you answer me that? I’m not a killer. Okay? I-I tried to save ava and diane. How can I make you believe me? Just answer my question! Why’d you start working for me? When I was — when I was subbing at volonino’s, I-I saw how you ran things, how everyone respected you. No, no, no, no, no, no. I don’t believe that. You — you were always pushy, trying to be around me. Why? That’s because I admire you. I respect you. You — you built yourself up from nothing. I — why?!I want to learn from you! So you can use it against me?!

Really should be nicer to me, considering I have information that could put you in some really hot water. Look, I already bought your silence by tampering with britt westbourne’s society setups experience to falsely match her with you. You can’t keep holding what you know over my head. Stay out of my way and I won’t have to. My daughter is none of your business! You’re the one barging into my office, making it my business. And I certainly think trina’s paternity is curtis’ business. I don’t need a lecture! I don’t need a lecture from you, jordan! Both trina and curtis deserve to know the truth. Look, I’m not your enemy, portia. I’m not saying this to hurt you. But the truth has a way of coming out. This is about curtis and how you keep running around behind him. That’s what this is about. Why don’t you just admit it? Admit it. Tell me the truth. Tell me the truth. You want your ex-husband back, don’t you? Trina, you should know better than to walk around alone these days. I do. Sorry. I just found parking. The garage was packed.

[ Sighs ] What’d I miss? My dad was with me. I’m not stupid. I should get back to my room. Trina, would you — would you give me a hand? Yes, of course. Thank you. What was that? That was me possibly being a bit hasty. Look, I was just trying to keep trina safe. I didn’t mean to overstep. Okay. No, it’s cool. I mean, it’s too bad you never had kids. You got this dad thing down pat. Sorry about that. Georgie wanted me to check in her closet for monsters… oh. …Then read her two more stories, then check under her bed. She’s impossible. She’s not impossible. Resistance is earned a little bit at a time. And she’s this little girl who wants her mom all to herself. She will get over her… resistance? …Uh, shyness with you sometime in the not-so-distant future. I hope. Yeah, I hope so, too. So, here we are again.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Knock on door ] Hold that thought. Hi, sis. The day ava was attacked, you made sure you were the guy who delivered the corinthos coffee donation. Why were you so eager to visit… the quartermaine estate? Dex: I warned you he was digging

into my background. Yeah, I know. This was all part of the plan. Look, your past is part of the reason that I hired you. Because almost getting court-martialed for striking a superior officer is such a big selling point? In this case, yes. Knowing that you protected a family from an abusive man the same way that sonny wishes that he could’ve protected his mother from his stepfather will only further his opinion of you, and he’ll trust you more. Sonny: Looks to me like you were casing the place, trying to figure out how to attack ava. I wanted to deliver the donation because I thought you would be there. Like I said, I-I want to prove myself. You believe him? Me neither. What are you gonna do? Just keep beating me until I confess to something I didn’t do? No, no, no, no, not at all. I’m gonna bring in a ringer. Someone who’s known to get results.

Is dex heller in custody? He left? How are you? Deeply concerned for diane, distraught that this could happen to anyone, let alone her. I mean, do we know, was this a crime of opportunity? Or were ava, brando, and diane targeted? We just know that they all have the same person in common. Oh, yeah. Hey, spinelli. I’m glad you’re here. Diane’s been a steadfast friend and able defender. The very least I can do is sit here in the waiting area. So here I am. Yeah, look, I-I’d like to stay, but, uh, something’s come up. Can you, um — can you text me if there’s any update on diane? Yeah, of course. Is — is everything okay? Yeah. Yeah, it’s fine. Just a misunderstanding. I’m just trying to get some facts straight. Okay. Alright, bye. What are you talking about? Can I come in? Sure. Austin, you remember cody from the quartermaine picnic? Yeah, I sure do. You’re the guy who was trying to give pork to my girlfriend.

[ Laughs ] Uh, yeah, we were never formally introduced. I’m, uh, cody bell. You’re dr. Holt, right? Yeah, dr. Gatlin-holt. Gatlin? Yeah. Dr. Gatlin-holt. That’s me. So, cody, why did, uh — why’d you call me sis? Oh, my gosh. Did mac talk to you? Thank goodness. I am so glad this is finally out in the open. W-what’s out in the open? Oh, boy. Wait, you really think that mac scorpio’s my dad? There you go. Thank you. So, you texted me that you wanted to talk. Is this about rory or spencer? What? Cameron, actually. Okay. So, you know how spencer was only pretending to believe that I was guilty so that he could work esme and try to get her to incriminate herself? Yeah, yeah, that kind of convoluted thinking happens to be a cassadine trait. Well, early on, spencer told cameron the truth. How early? Not long after I was arrested. Spencer told cameron but swore him to secrecy. Spencer thought if anyone knew what he was doing, esme might figure it out. But who knows? Ma– maybe he was right. But it just bothered me that cameron kept the secret. Have you told cameron any of this? Yeah, we just talked about it after josslyn left the hatchet range. I told him how I felt. He heard me and apologized. And now we’re good. Good. I’m glad. Me too. And you were so supportive when I was trying to figure out my feelings with cam. I wish I told you about it sooner. No thanks to curtis.

[ Scoffs ] Could you believe the way he jumped on me? You know, I-I think that he’s just trying t-to protect you.

[ Scoffs ] I just got used to living in a new house with him and my mom, and now I’m back at the dorms. But once they get married, curtis will be my stepdad. That sounds pretty good. I mean, it is. I really like curtis. But it’s just… he treats me like I’m 12. Oh, trina, try to be patient with him, though, okay? I don’t think curtis has been a stepdad before, has he? I can take care of myself. And if I can’t, I have my mom and my dad who can help me. And me. Don’t you — don’t you forget about me. And now you’re gonna have curtis, too. Is that so bad? I’m not following curtis around. This conversation started because I’m still very much in curtis’ life. We’re still married. Because you conveniently forgot to file the divorce papers, didn’t you, jordan? It was a mistake.

[ Scoffs ] I’m sorry for any trouble it’s caused curtis. I don’t want to make his life more difficult. W-well, then why are you hinting around to curtis that I’m lying to him? That makes no sense. I asked you if curtis was trina’s father. I haven’t heard a denial. So it’s obvious that you’re hiding something. You know what? I hope, diane, after surgery, is able to identify her attacker. What are you thinking, like male, female? What do you think the pattern is? Motives, and were the attacks random or deliberate? Well, they did happen on the quartermaine grounds, behind charlie’s pub. Yeah, but also in brando’s garage. Now, this attacker seems to be acting out of rage, especially considering the weapon. A slaughtering hook? I don’t know. Um, I tried to speak to trina and tell her to leave town for a couple weeks, stay at her aunt gia’s, but… yeah, I’m guessing that was met with an adamant “no.” Yeah, she absolutely refuses to leave college, especially after last semester and all the time she lost with the trial. Right. You know what? I understand trina not wanting to disrupt the start of her sophomore year, especially after the rough summer she had.

[ Gasps ] Oh, how about I take weekdays, you take weekends. That way we can make sure she’s covered 24/7. Right, right. You know what? I can think of a way to keep trina safer in port charles. So, you heard something. Like — like a voice? No, no, it wasn’t a voice. It was a — it was a sound. Sounded like — like jingling, like metal pieces rattling together. When did you hear this sound? It was right after I left charlie’s and I-I was, uh, crossing the alley. So there’s a dumpster in that alley. It could have been a homeless person kicking around some cans. Nobody else was in the alley. Except for maybe dex. I never saw dex there. I never did. I-I saw him leave charlie’S. He — he headed out the back entrance. And I also saw that he left his sunglasses. So I grabbed them and I went out to follow him and give them back, and he wasn’t there. Or maybe he just wasn’t visible. Do you think that the sounds I heard could have been coming from dex? That he was somewhere in the alley? And when brando followed after me… I didn’t say it, joss, but you just did. Sonny: You were right about one thing. I-I-I could let ray keep beating you up. But, you know, I’m just not gonna get the answers that I need, so… dex, this is carver. We haven’t worked together personally, but, uh, he comes highly recommended by the wu family. H-he’s well-known for getting people to talk by any means necessary.

[ Knock on door ] Mr. Corinthos? What is it, frank?

[ Whispering ] Michael’s here. He wants to talk to you. That’s unfortunate. Alright, listen, I got — I got — I got a matter I got to deal with. So… ray… watch the door. Dex, I’m gonna let you get acquainted… with carver.

So, what’s the plan? Make sure trina sticks around G.H. After she sees ava. Hey, so ava’s resting, and I think I’m gonna go check on diane to see if she’s out of surgery yet. I like it. I’ll go with you. Okay. Thank you. Um, yeah, I-I’m gonna head out. Your mom says that you’re staying at home tonight, not in the dorms? Mm-hmm. I’ll see you then. Alright, let’s go see diane. How did georgie handle the disruption of her evening with her father? Well, I told her that diane was in the hospital, leaving aside some details, of course, and she agreed that I should be here to support diane. So we’ll reschedule our viewing for another time. Oh, viewing? Oh, haven’t I told you? I’m mentoring my progeny on a tour of a certain galaxy far, far away. Oh. Yeah. Yes. So rest assured, georgie will see every original, every sequel, prequel, in-between-quel in the “star wars” universe. Okay. Who’s her favorite character? Oh, well, uh, princess leia organa, uh, closely followed by yoda, with a, uh, certain fondness for darth vader. Wait, does she know? Oh, that he was once anakin? Yes, of course. We’re watching the canon in order. It’s just — I don’t know. She — she’s got a tender heart and a hopeful — hopeful spirit. I think she — she insists that vader can be redeemed. Plus, she likes his helmet. Ah. I bet you she gets that perspective from you. Well, I-I try not to influence her with my likes or dislikes. The joy is in just watching her experience this storytelling universe that brought me so much joy. You’re a really good dad, spinelli. Well, I’m blessed with an amazing daughter. And equally fortunate to have… a co-parent like her amazing mother, so… is maxie okay waiting alone for news on diane? She’s not alone. Dr. Gatlin-holt is keeping her company. Oh, how is it going between georgie and austin? The last maxie told me that georgie was having a problem sharing her mom with austin. Georgie’s still not a fan, despite the efforts of the good doctor. And she’s not being influenced by anyone about austin, is she? I have no need. Georgie’s an excellent judge of character. I’m sure she is. It’s possible she may have picked up on my own… jealousy. …Reservations. I haven’t denied your allegation because I don’t owe you an answer. But you do owe curtis one. The timing works. You and curtis were involved about 20 years ago.

[ Scoffs ] Taggert and I were together for another three years after curtis left me. Taggert has been trina’s dad her whole life. We both know what you said in the basement last year. And I know you’ve been looking into genetic counseling for trina. How could you possibly kn– are you afraid trina may have inherited a predisposition to schizophrenia from curtis’ side of the family?

[ Knock on door ] Whoever it is, come in and distract me. Hey. Can we talk? Yeah, of course. What’s on your mind? Keeping trina safe. Oh, well, I’m all for that. How can I help? You need to fire trina. No, no. You just said that mac was your dad. I was bluffing. No one would give me a straight answer. Have you — have you even talked to mac? No. Okay, well, you should really do that. Well, I want more information before doing that. So what do you know? Oh, come on, cody. This was way before my time. Like that would stop you. Listen, I’ve asked around town. I learned about your reputation. You know everything there is to know in port charles. This is true. Okay, from what I’ve heard, mac and dominique, they fell in love. Wait. Here? In port charles? No, no. Somewhere else. Mac was on the run when he met dominique, and dominique was married to leopold taub, who was apparently the absolute worst. Yeah, I’m aware. Then taub died. Uh, I’m a little fuzzy on that part ’cause he was part of some evil cartel or something like that. Anyway, the good news is, with him out of the way, dominique was able to come back to port charles, where she was reunited with mac. Okay, well, I know they didn’t live happily ever after, but mac never said anything about having a kid? Mac didn’t know dominique had a baby. Yeah. So he says. Mac is not a liar. He’s the best man I know. And you would be lucky to have him as a dad. Michael. What a surprise. Look, ava was attacked, brando’s dead, and diane’s in the hospital. My people are monitoring her condition. Ava, diane, and brando have one thing in common, and that is you. Did you hear what I said? I’m handling it, michael. And what does that mean?

[ Chuckles ] Do you know who the killer is? Josslyn: No way. Dex is not behind these attacks. Well, I don’t know what to tell you. I got to be open to everything until it’s ruled out. What is that? This is the file on brando’s attack. When he woke up in the hospital, before all hell broke loose, he told jordan he remembered hearing a sound — a sound describing what you’re talking about, like a metal clinking. Really? So then I’m onto something. Dex was in the military, and he still wears dog tags.

[ Metal clinks ]

[ Exhales deeply ] Forget something? Probably. Could you be more specific? You left these at charlie’S. I was wondering what happened to them. Thanks for getting them back to me. Well, I-I actually tried to get them back to you yesterday. Um, I followed you out the back exit to the alley, but, you know, I didn’t see you anywhere. Do you think the sound that you and brando both heard could have been his dog tags? Well, it — it could have been tags on a dog’s collar. A dog? Was there a dog in the alley? Well, dex wasn’t there, either. And how do you know that he still wears these tags? Because I’ve seen them. And I think you have, too. Dex: You can skip the theatrics. I know the drill. Carver: Not sure what you mean. Unpacking your bag, taking out the knives. You want me ready to break before you ever start cutting. Which would probably work. If I knew anything worth knowing… I’d tell you. But you don’t want information. I don’t want anything. Mr. Corinthos does. I’m just the facilitator. Mr. Corinthos wants to know who stabbed those people. But I didn’t do it.

Fire trina? No, I can’t do that. S-she’s like a daughter to me, not to mention the fact that she happens to be very good at her job and — and she’s getting college credit for her work at the gallery. I understand, but your attacker hasn’t been caught yet. And you think he might try to finish the job?

[ Sighs ] I don’t know. But while there’s still a chance, I think trina should stay as far away from you as possible. What if your attacker shows up at the gallery and trina happens to be there? You’ve done quite a bit of investigating into my personal life, haven’t you? I hope you didn’t use your position as police commissioner to gain access to my personal medical files. I would never. Then how? How do you know? How do you know about the genetic testing, then? I came across this information by accident. You know, you keep trying to make this about me, but you need to take a good look at your actions. I thought you loved curtis. I do. I love curtis. I do. You can’t marry curtis with this hanging over you. Is that a threat? After losing ellie, my feelings for maximista may have been rebooted. May? Alright.

[ Sighs ] I have feelings for her. And — and it’s not just because we co-parent our incredible daughter or our platonic yet equally incredible friendship. Can you blame me? No, spinelli, of course I don’t blame you. And to be honest, I’m not even surprised. You and maxie have shared so much for a long time. Are you gonna tell her how you feel? I just feel like it’s not the right time. She seems really happy with austin. I’m trying to move on. Okay, well, any luck with society setups? So far, my — my true match has eluded me. Oh, wait, are you saying britt is not your match? Uh…a passing fancy. Okay. And realistically, too tall for me. So I will continue my search. But I… I fear that maxie’s the one. I-I can’t tell you how tempting it is to see if she and I are a match, but I have resisted thus far. Wait, how would you know if you and maxie were a match? She’s not a client of society setups, is she? I… I really couldn’t say. Wait, and zelda wouldn’t be able to match her with you because they don’t know each other. You know what? I’m not even sure about zelda’s matchmaking skills anyway. Society setups has had great success. I mean, if you go to their website, you can see they’ve made hundreds of compatible matches. Okay, spinelli, I know you’re a romantic, but — no, no, no, it’s not romance, it’s science. Wait, what are you talking about? Gah!

[ Gasps ] Spinelli! What haven’t you been telling me?

[ Whimpers ] Alright, alright, alright, alright. The truth. Zelda telesco is — is — is merely a front. She’s not the matchmaker. I am. Why are you here, michael? Three people, all who have ties to you, have been attacked. I’m asking you what you know about it. I got — all my people are doing everything they can to find out who did this. Right, the pcpd brought in dex heller for questioning. Where’d you hear that? He used his one phone call to contact you. You showed up and you got him released. Yeah, he works for me. I take care of my people. Right, and what kind of care is he getting at the moment? Did you pick him up because you think he’s innocent or because you think that he’s guilty and you plan on dealing with him yourself?

I’m not threatening you. We both need to just cool down. Really? Because it sounds to me like you’re saying you’re gonna go to curtis with your suspicions if I don’t speak up. Is that what you’re gonna do, jordan? Always a pleasure. You too. All set. Well, this is for the best. I’m glad we both agree. Yeah, the last thing I want is for anything to happen to trina. What really matters is that trina’s safe.

[ Door closes ] Back up, spinelli. Are you saying that you work for zelda? No, no, no. Zelda works for me. Uh-huh. I hired her. I’m not just a client of society setups. I’m the owner, as well. Okay. I, uh — I still don’t — I don’t get it. How? Okay. I am society setups. Society setups is me. And if anyone finds out, I’ll end up in federal prison. That’s a lot to take in. Yeah. I don’t really know what to believe right now. Again, you should really talk to mac. Right. Okay. Yeah. You know what? I don’t understand your attitude. Mac is the best dad. And leopold was some sort of monster. How could you want to be leopold’s son? Hey. I got your text. What’s wrong? Did you try to walk again? Tire yourself out? No, no, no. No, I’m fine. Well, something’s wrong. I can see that you’re upset. I am. Um… because I can’t be your boss any longer. You made it clear you don’t want me in your life. So don’t come to me when you want a problem solved, michael. I’ll tell you why this concerns me. Because — ’cause ava is avery’s mother, and I care about avery. And brando was extended family. Okay, right. And sasha, who I care about, is now a widow. Mm-hmm. And diane, who’s not only an amazing attorney who’s done miracles for me in court, she’s also a friend, someone I look up to and admire. And now she’s fighting for her life in the hospital. And guess what. You — you are the common denominator. And the police, they’re not — they’re not — not questioning you about — about any rivals or enemies who may be targeting people who were close to you. No, instead, they bring in dex heller, a guy who drives your car. And now, you know, dex seems to have vanished after leaving the pcpd with you. Go home. This doesn’t concern you. Are you sure you have the right guy? What makes you think that dex is guilty? What is dex to you, michael? Why do you care what happens to him? The night dex found you and ava and you were working to slow her bleeding, what was he wearing? The usual — jeans, white t-shirt. Okay, c-could he have had his — his dog tags on under the shirt? Well, we were trying to save ava. I mean, how am I supposed to remember something like that? Wait, so… wearing a white t-shirt. Was it clean? Yeah. Why? Mr. Corinthos has informed me that you’ve been evading his questions. I haven’t evaded anything. I’ve been telling the truth. And when he figures that out, you’ll be out of a job.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Thomas: You’re from child protective services?

Cps agent: Yes, we are. Does the child douglas forrester reside at this address?

Thomas: Yeah, it’s my son.

Cps agent 2: Is he here? We need to check on his well-being.

Ridge: Why? He’s fine.

Cps agent: That’s what we’re here to determine.

Thomas: Did someone file a complaint?

[ Music fades ]

Brooke: It’s better to talk here. I’m not comfortable discussing this at the office.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, it’s not exactly a secret that you’re unhappy about douglas staying with thomas.

Hope: I have been very careful not to escalate things.

Liam: Yeah, okay, but here’s the thing. If your mom is right, and is seeing this… change in thomas for the worst, then maybe it’s time to escalate.

Brooke: Well, that’s exactly what I’m saying.

Hope: Okay, all right. All right. Fine, I’m listening.

Brooke: Don’t you have to go pick up beth?

Liam: No, she’s, uh– she’s gonna be at her friend’s house for a bit.

Brooke: I’m sure she misses douglas as much as we do. I just hate to think of douglas, trapped over there with thomas.

Paris: I really appreciate you taking the time to look over this proposal, steffy.

Steffy: Your grant package?

Paris: Investor outreach.

Steffy: Right.

Zende: If you guys need to talk, I can leave the sketch, or we can discuss it later.

Steffy: I’ll text you two later, see how everything’s going. That’ll be best, I think. Hey, babe.

Zende: Hi, finn.

Finn: Oh, pam said I could come right in.

Steffy: Yeah. Of course, yeah, anytime.

Finn: Sorry, am I breaking up a tense meeting.

Steffy: N-n-no I was just about to tell them what a great job you two are doing. It’s just, um, I’M…

Finn: Yeah, well, something’s going on.

Finn: Tell me, what’s up?

Steffy: Argh.

Finn: You and brooke got into it?

Steffy: She’s on a rampage.

Finn: About your mom or your brother?

Steffy: You know what? I really don’t want to get into it right now, especially in front of paris and zende, all this family drama.

Zende: Well, I am family. And paris and I already know all about the drama.

Paris: Yeah, and nobody wants to take sides, but we work with thomas, and we see how happy he is having douglas stay with him.

Steffy: Yeah, everyone’s happy about it… except brooke. She’s attacking thomas’s role as a father, questioning his ability to take care of his own son.

Brooke: Douglas has been with thomas long enough, it is fortunate nothing has happened to him yet.

Hope: Mom, if I thought that douglas was in any danger, I would step in immediately.

Brooke: Honey, you didn’t see that knife.

Liam: Yeah, but you did say that thomas didn’t let douglas play with it or anything, right?

Brooke: No. But he was watching his father using it. And, you know, he wants to emulate his dad. And now with the forrester’s pushing this forrester family legacy on him, it’s just…

[ Loud sigh ] What was thomas thinking? What kind of environment is that for a sweet, impressionable child, like douglas?

Thomas: My son is perfectly safe and happy here.

Cps agent: Then you won’t mind letting us speak to him.

Ridge: You have a warrant or something?

Cps agent 2: No, sir. We merely want to see your grandson for a few moments, ascertain his well-being and hopefully be on our way.

Cps agent: Unless, you have something to hide.

Ridge: No one has anything to hide.

Thomas: No, no. You can see him right now. He’s right here, in the living room.

Ridge: Come on.

Douglas: Hey, dad.

Thomas: Hey.

Douglas: Did you know that grandpa hasn’t won a single game in the last 20 games?

Thomas: That’s ’cause, grandpa, uh, stinks. But, uh, if you could put that down just for a minute, ’cause these, uh, these people just need to talk to you.

Douglas: Oh, okay.

Cps agent: Hi, douglas. I’m elizabeth. This is michaia. We just stopped by to see how you’re doing. A lot of people care about you and want to make sure you’re all right. Hi, my name is reggie and I

Zende: Do you think we should take this in–

Steffy: You know what? My brother has earned this time with douglas, and it makes me furious that anyone wants to take that from him.

Finn: Hope misses him, that’s understandable.

Steffy: No, brooke is painting my brother out to be this bad guy, which is not true. I mean, anyone could see it if they– they just spent a few seconds with douglas and thomas, they would see how much douglas loves and trusts his father.

Zende: Hopefully, brooke will see that, too. All this drama between the logans and the forresters, it has to end.

Steffy: Yeah.

Charlie: Oh, zende, there you are. Uh, they need you down in the cutting room.

Paris: Oh, and I have a call right now, too.

Steffy: Huh, yeah.

Charlie: Oh, oh, oh, boss, boss, listen. Um, your dad was talking about brooke earlier. Ha-have-have you seen her?

Steffy: No, I haven’t, and I really don’t want to.

Charlie: Okey dokey. Uh, okay. Until I get the all clear, I guess we should make this a brooke free zone, huh?

[ Chuckles ]

Finn: Oh, until you get the all clear this office should be off limits to everybody.

Charlie: Why would that be? Oh, oh, oh you– ok– I–

[ Chuckles ] Sorry!

Finn: Okay. Are you all right?

Steffy: No. I’m just worried about thomas. This whole situation with brooke is just getting impossible.

Brooke: The knife was scary enough, but thomas’s attitude worries me even more. I mean, the way he was just brushing me off.

Hope: Okay, look. I am concerned about the knife. I didn’t think that thomas would be so cavalier about his son’s safety. And you’re right. He may not realize, just, how tempting it is for a little boy to want to be like his dad.

Brooke: He’s not equipped to be a full-time parent.

Liam: Whoa, okay, all right. I know that we don’t want this to get ugly, we want it to be civil. But, you know, “a” we have to remember the guy’s past, and, “b”, if he’s now just straight up ignoring advice and basically telling douglas’s grandmother to go mind her own business, that’s– that’s not a good sign. You agree, right?

Brooke: Ugh, and I think we’re the only people who notice that. Poor douglas, he wants to be just like his dad, and then ridge, and taylor, and eric, they want to boost thomas up. I don’t think they would see the warning signs if it was glaring them in the face. This is too important. I mean, somebody has to look out for douglas.

Elizabeth: Well, I see you play chess. You any good?

Douglas: I guess.

Ridge: He’s really good. He lives here with thomas and my dad. They’re teaching him.

Douglas: Yeah, he’s a designer.

Michaia: You like living here with your dad and great-grandfather?

Douglas: Yeah, once great granddad let me play in the living room.

Michaia: What about schoolwork? Does he help you with that too?

Douglas: No, dad helps me with homework. Only if I need it.

Elizabeth: You and your dad spend a lot of time together?

Douglas: Yeah.

Elizabeth: We just want to make sure you feel safe here.

Douglas: Safe?

Elizabeth: You’re not scared? Worried about anything?

Douglas: No! Why would I? I love being here with my dad. There’s a pool, tennis courts, and a really big screening room.

Michaia: Sounds like a blast. Thanks for talking with us, douglas. We’d like to speak with your dad now.

Thomas: Yeah, bud. Why don’t you grab your colors and sketchbook, and head upstairs and I’ll meet you up there?

Douglas: Okay. Bye.

Elizabeth: Nice meeting you, douglas.

Ridge: Was it necessary? You saw how confused he was.

Elizabeth: We have to investigate every call we receive.

Thomas: Okay, well, now you saw that he is perfectly safe and happy here.

Michaia: We had reason to believe that your son might be in jeopardy. We were told there was an incident with a knife.

Steffy: I know you didn’t stop by to hear me go on and on and on about brooke.

Finn: No, I stopped by to see how you… are.

Steffy: Better when you’re here.

Finn: Yeah, but you’re still frustrated.

Steffy: Of course, I’m frustrated. Brook’s coming after my family. It’s like, every time things are going in the right direction for us, she interferes. She interferes with my parents, with thomas, trying to get him away from his son, making him sound like he’s a dangerous person. It’s ridiculous.

Finn: And it’s upsetting. But thomas is douglas’s father, brooke can complain about them living together all she wants, but she can’t actually do anything.

Steffy: This is brooke logan we’re talking about. Everybody knows she’ll do whatever it takes to get what she wants.

Brooke: I hate feeling this way about thomas. He’s ridge’s son.

Liam: I mean, I know you want to trust him, but if– if he’s making bad choices, you’re the only one who can call him out on.

Hope: Mom, if you think that this is serious and it needs to be addressed, then I will talk to him.

Brooke: Yes, honey, it’s very serious, but I don’t want you caught in the middle.

Hope: Douglas is my son, and I need to know he’s safe.

Brooke: Well, I wish we didn’t have to worry about that. But thomas has done a lot of crazy things in his past. His judgment hasn’t always been sound.

Liam: Yeah, far from it.

Brooke: I can’t forget all the things that he’s done to you, hope. And the mannequin… and what about what he’s done to his own son? How he used douglas to get closer to you?

Hope: And it was inexcusable. But didn’t we want him to get better? Wasn’t that the point, to get him on the right track? I mean, mom, I think we need to be honest with ourselves here, he hasn’t shown any of those tendencies in a very long time. So, I do think we at least need to hear him out.

Liam: Well, we wouldn’t know. We-we haven’t even gotten to see him, with douglas. I mean, you get these invitations to the house, you’re going over there, so you’ve seen them. And, I mean, you say everything seems okay.

Brooke: But, yeah, they seem okay. But, honey, this is where douglas lives. Here with you. This is where we know he will be safe and secure.

Thomas: There was no incident with a knife.

Michaia: You deny having a large knife around the minor?

Thomas: I mean, like, I’ve like, a little pocketknife, but there was no accident.

Michaia: May we see the knife?

Ridge: What? Why?

Thomas: You know what, fine, I’ll get the knife and you guys can look at it.

Ridge: What do you–? What is happening here? Did somebody call you and say that the little kid was in danger. Is that what happened? What, that’s a secret? I’ll tell you what’s not a secret. My son is a good father, so there’s nothing to worry about here.

Thomas: Here you go. Here is the knife. You know what, you guys, you guys keep that thing because it disgusts me that there’s an idea that he could get hurt with anything that I have, I mean, it’S… look, my son is the most important thing in the world to me. It’s my job to make sure he’s safe, it’s my job to make sure he is secure. He-he’s living in this wonderful home, you can see how happy he is. Okay, he is surrounded by a family that loves him. Me most of all.

Michaia: We’re glad to hear that. We understand a visit like this can be upsetting, but a child safety must come first.

Thomas: Hey,I totally agree.

Elizabeth: Thank you, for your cooperation.

Ridge: Yeah.

[ Door closes ]

Thomas: What the hell was that?

Ridge: We got to make sure that none of this ends up on your permanent record. So, what is this? Now people think that douglas is in danger? Who called these people over here? Whoever it was, whoever made this– this phone call, they made a big mistake.

Finn: Hey, look, your brother, he’s holding his own.

Steffy: Yeah, he is. But once brooke sets her mind on something, she doesn’t let up, no matter who it hurts. Think of all the times she split my parents up, she wants my dad, she wants deacon, and she wants bill, she wants and wants and wants. It’s selfish and it’s toxic. But she doesn’t stop.

Finn: Well, it’s a good thing thomas has you looking out for him.

Steffy: Yeah. Thomas, douglas, my parents, everyone…

Finn: It’s a lot. I get it, feeling like your family is under attack, especially for someone as fiercely protective as you are. You said brooke never gives up? Guess what? Neither do you. All right? It’s one of the many things I love about you.

Steffy: “Many?”

Finn: Many. Come here.

Hope: Mom, I understand that you’re concerned about douglas.

Brooke: Honey, we don’t even know what’s going on over there at eric’S.

Hope: It’s where douglas wants to be. He asked to spend more time with his father.

Liam: Yeah, but he’s not old enough to make that decision. I think he’s mature enough to know if there is something wrong. And we know that for a fact, because in the past, he has told that to us.

Liam: Yeah.

Brooke: Okay, well, that’s a lot of responsibility to put on a little boy.

Hope: I am responsible, I am his mother, I have been keeping an eye out. I have been going over there and seen how he is with thomas. I have informed all of his teachers. I’ve been going to the house every day. He has been having a good time.

Liam: Okay. But just because he’s having a good time doesn’t mean he’s safe when you’re not there.

Brooke: That’s right. I mean, as a parent, you have to be diligent. The child expects you to be there, and love them, and support them, and put their needs first above everything else. And yes, maybe, thomas wants to do that for his son, but he can’t, because he’s not ready yet. And his behavior with that knife, that proves it. He has to be diligent. He has to be extremely careful with a child in his care. I have grave concerns about douglas living with thomas.

>Ridge: I can’t believe this. Can’t believe any of it. You know, really, I should call carter, get legal involved, make sure that none of this lands on you.

Thomas: Nah, you know, I don’t– I don’t think that they were convinced like anything was wrong.

Ridge: Why were they here? Why would they come to our house? What they– did they– they think that-that you’re– putting douglas in danger? You’re a great father.

Thomas: You know what?

Ridge: And wait, now they’re going to question that little boy, they’re going to question you?

Thomas: I would never give douglas a knife and let him play around with it, and possibly hurt–

Ridge: I know that. I think, everybody in their right mind would know that. There’s somebody out there’s– thinks differently.

Brooke: I mean, I will protect douglas no matter what, I would call child protective services on thomas, if I–

Ridge: Woah, woah, woah, you– no, no, no, no, no, no…

Thomas: What is it? Who are you calling? You think there’s a problem?

Ridge: I hope not.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Brooke: Ridge, hi.

Ridge: Hey. Where are you right now?

Brooke: I’m at home. Why?

Ridge: Just trying to find a way to tell you what just happened.

Brooke: What happened? You sound upset.

Ridge: I am upset. At my dad’s house, I was hanging out with douglas, and two officers from the cps showed up.

Brooke: Cps?

Ridge: Yeah. They were investigating thomas and douglas, and they questioned my grandson.

Brooke: Oh hun, oh what happened? Is douglas okay?

Ridge: Everyone’s okay, because douglas lives in a loving, beautiful house where he’s very safe. And the officers saw that right away, and they left. Here’s what bothers me… douglas and thomas had to go through this, in our house.

Brooke: Okay, well, you’re obviously angry.

Ridge: I got to ask you something. I don’t want to, but I have to ask you this, because this whole time you’ve been saying that you don’t think thomas is a good father to douglas. That you don’t feel safe having douglas in his care. Did you do this? Did you call child services on my son?

Primetime TV Review: The Rookie: Feds

TV Review!

“The Rookie: Feds” Review on by Eva 9/28/2022

The Rookie: Feds is a spinoff of The Rookie and follows the career change of former guidance counselor turned FBi agent Simone Clark (Niece Nash-Betts). Simone is the oldest rookie in the FBI and now must prove herself to everyone on the special FBI task force where she is assigned to work. Simone doesn’t always follow the rules relying more on her life experience and her instincts in order to solve cases. Special Agent Carter Hope (James Lesure) a by the book agent who is in charge of training Simone which is hard for him because Simone doesn’t often listen to what he tells her to do.

The first episode started a little slow since they had to introduce the characters in the cast so it didn’t draw me into the episode right away but it got better towards the middle of the episode. The show also has a great sense of humor which fans of The Rookie will enjoy because the show doesn’t take itself as seriously as other police dramas which makes it fun to watch. I hope that in future episodes the show won’t start off as slowly and I will get to know the characters and enjoy watching them. I think it will also be fun to watch the cross overs with The Rookie and to see those characters helping out the Fed team.

I give this show a 4 out of5 stars. If you missed the first episode, you can stream it on Hulu or on the ABC app. I think fans of The Rookie will enjoy this show but I am not sure if it can attract viewers that don’t watch The Rookie.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Jack goes home looking for Jennifer but just finds the empty pill bottle on the living room floor. Julie comes in, saying she heard Jack come racing in and asks what’s wrong. Jack asks her if Doug is still taking painkillers for his shoulder. Julie confirms he hasn’t since last year. Jack shows Julie the pill bottle that he found on the floor. Julie doesn’t understand because they never refilled the prescription. Jack reveals that he thinks Jennifer did. Jack informs Julie that Gwen told him that Jennifer is taking painkillers again and he didn’t want to believe her, but he thinks she’s right.

Jennifer goes driving while crying. Jennifer imagines Abigail in the seat next to her and declares she’s going to make Clyde pay. Jennifer swears that anyone who ever hurt Abigail will pay as she promises her justice.

Gwen exits the police station and sees an oncoming car coming towards her.

In the cemetery, Clyde then grabs Chad and they fight, losing the gun in the process. Clyde ends up pinning Chad down on the ground, saying he’ll be with Abigail now soon. Clyde chokes Chad until EJ arrives and shoots Clyde in the back. EJ asks if Chad is alright. Chad says he’s fine and asks if Clyde is dead. EJ stands over Clyde and says the roles are reversed now. EJ asks Clyde how it feels to be the one bleeding in the grass now and calls it poetic justice. Clyde tells him to go to Hell. Chad asks Clyde how it feels knowing he’s only moments away from damnation and there’s nothing he can do about it. Chad declares that he’s going to relish every single second of it. EJ says they both are. Chad recalls finding Abigail still clinging to life alone in the bedroom and now tonight, Clyde is going to pay back every single painful second. Chad adds that in Abigail’s final moments, she was with someone that loved her while Clyde will not be so lucky.

Belle tries calling EJ but it goes to voicemail. Shawn then gets a message that there’s reports of gunshots in the cemetery. Belle points out that’s where Abigail is buried. Shawn tells Belle to stay there but Belle tells him that she’s coming with him and not to argue, so they exit together.

Rafe goes to the police station finishing a call with Jada as he finds Gwen unconscious on the ground. Rafe checks on her and asks if she can hear him.

Clyde asks Chad to call for help and not to let him die. Chad and EJ mock him as if they didn’t hear anything. Clyde says “damn you both” as he then passes out.

Jack and Julie search the house but can’t find Jennifer. Jack tries calling Jennifer but she doesn’t answer. Jack asks if Julie’s noticed any change in Jennifer’s behavior recently. Julie understands Jennifer is grieving deeply over the loss of her daughter. Jack decides he needs to go find Jennifer and tells Julie to stay home with Doug in case Jennifer comes home. Jack thanks her and goes to leave, but then Jennifer comes home. Jack tells her that they were so worried about her and that she wasn’t answering her phone. Jennifer responds that she doesn’t know where her phone is and says she needs to sit down. Jack asks if she’s alright, what happened, and where she has been.

Rafe encourages Gwen to stay with him as he calls for an ambulance right away.

Shawn and Belle rush up to find EJ and Chad standing over Clyde. Shawn checks on Clyde and confirms he’s still alive. Shawn then calls in for medical assistance. Shawn asks what the hell happened here. Belle advises EJ as his lawyer to not say a word. EJ agrees and suggests Belle will also be representing Chad but Chad says he doesn’t need a lawyer as he has nothing to hide.

Jack reminds Jennifer that she was supposed to stay home as she said she wasn’t feeling well. Jennifer says she wasn’t but then she spoke to Abigail. Jack tells her that’s not possible. Jennifer admits she meant that she imagined speaking to Abigail. Jennifer cries that she’s just so upset that they haven’t found her killer, so she decided to see what was happening with Clyde. Julie questions what she’s talking about. Jack informs her that the police have finally decided that Clyde may have killed Abigail. Jennifer complains that she couldn’t just sit there and wait, so she decided to drive to the police station to see what’s going on. Jack questions her driving in this condition. Jennifer claims she’s fine but she started feeling dizzy so she turned around and came back. Jennifer asks Jack if they’ve caught Clyde for murdering their daughter because he has to answer for that. Jack assures that the police are handling that but there’s something they need to handle right now. Jennifer questions what it is. Jack then presents the pill bottle to her.

Xander and Sarah are at the hospital together when Sarah gets a message that two ambulances just pulled in downstairs. Xander says he’ll see her back home and then turns around as Rafe arrives with Gwen being stretchered in.

Chad sits with Shawn at the police station and gives his statement about how once he talked to Nancy about the vanilla aftershave, he realized it wasn’t Craig, but Clyde, who stabbed Sonny. Chad adds that he was even more convinced after Rafe told him that Clyde’s alibi fell apart. Shawn questions Chad taking matters in to his own hands. Chad confirms that he took the gun from the family safe, intercepted Clyde at the City Hall and took him to Abigail’s grave to make him confess his crimes. Chad reveals that Clyde admitted to it. Shawn questions why and if it was to send a message to EJ. Chad says sort of but Abigail was not his original target and was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, so when Clyde broke in, he didn’t intend to kill his wife, as he was after Shawn’s. Belle and EJ then join them at the station right then. Shawn questions why Clyde would want to kill Belle. Chad explains that Clyde had planted a bug at the DiMera Mansion several weeks before. EJ guesses it was the night Clyde came over and claimed he wanted to go in to business with him. Chad says from that moment on, Clyde was keeping tabs on EJ. EJ knows Clyde wanted leverage. Chad adds that Clyde’s worst fear was confirmed when he heard EJ confiding in Belle. Shawn complains that he can’t believe how reckless EJ was for putting his wife in danger. Belle tells Shawn that they didn’t know Clyde was listening and she wanted to help. Chad continues that Clyde wanted to show how easy he could get to EJ and send a message but when he got there, Belle wasn’t home and no one was except Abigail. Chad talks about Abigail started questioning Clyde in the hall but she knew too much. Belle tells Chad that she’s so sorry. Shawn asks Chad what happened after he got Clyde to confess. Chad says he was upset and then Clyde caught him off guard and got the gun away. Chad says Clyde started strangling him and he just kept thinking about what happened to Abigail. EJ declares that he then picked up the gun and ended it. Belle states that EJ had no choice because Clyde was going to kill Chad. Chad agrees that if EJ hadn’t of shown up, he would be with Abigail right now. Shawn decides he’s heard enough for now and he needs to get to the hospital to see if he can get answers out of Clyde, assuming he’s still alive. EJ asks if they may leave but Shawn says no as he needs them to stay since he’ll have more questions for them. Belle tells Shawn to let her know what he finds out. Shawn hugs her and says he loves her. Shawn kisses her and says he’ll be back as he then exits the station.

Jennifer pretends not to know what the bottle of painkillers is and points out that the label says they are Doug’s. Julie says Doug stopped using them a year ago and never refilled the prescription but about a month ago, someone did. Jennifer questions what Julie is accusing her of. Jack brings up that Jennifer had an addiction to painkillers. Jennifer complains that was years ago. Jack says he’s not judging her and just needs her to talk to him. Jack asks her to tell him the truth as he questions if she’s been abusing pills again. Jennifer responds that she’s going to be sick and rushes out of the room.

Xander asks Rafe what happened to Gwen. Rafe responds that he’s not sure as he found her outside the police station, on the ground and not responsive. Rafe notes that there were tire tracks nearby so it looks like a hit and run. Xander questions who would do something like that. Rafe says they will find them but as of now, they have no witnesses so they don’t know much. Xander asks if Jack knows. Rafe responds that he’s just about to call him. Xander worries that he doesn’t know what Jack would do if he lost another daughter.

Julie asks if she should go check on Jennifer. Jack suggests giving her a minute. Julie asks what he thinks. Jack then gets a call from Rafe. Jack asks if he arrested Clyde. Rafe says no but Shawn has a lead and they are waiting for an update. Jack thanks Rafe for keeping him in the loop and says he’s in the middle of something. Rafe clarifies that wasn’t why he was calling as he has some bad news about Gwen. Jack rushes out and then Jennifer returns to the living room where Julie checks on her. Jennifer asks where Jack went. Julie informs her that Rafe called from the hospital as Gwen was brought in to the emergency room. Jennifer questions what happened. Julie says she doesn’t know as Jack rushed out after the call. Jennifer remarks that she hopes Gwen is alright.

Sarah comes out from the ER so Xander asks how Gwen is. Sarah informs him that she is stable but has some broken bones and a possible concussion but no internal bleeding or damage to major organs so she doesn’t need surgery for now. Rafe asks if she’s regained consciousness. Sarah says no as they have her sedated. Xander points out that Jack isn’t there yet so he asks if it would be alright if he sat with her. Sarah agrees and takes Xander to Gwen’s hospital room.

Belle tells EJ that she will see if she can find Melinda Trask to make sure his story is the first one she hears. EJ asks if she thinks he and Chad will be charged with anything. Belle says not if she can help it. EJ apologizes to Belle and says Shawn was right that he put her in danger and never should’ve told her about Clyde. Belle insists that he had no way of knowing that Clyde was listening and she practically forced it out of him. Belle states that EJ has no reason to apologize and she just wishes they could’ve stopped Clyde before he killed Abigail.

Shawn goes to the hospital and informs Rafe that EJ shot Clyde and says it was to save Chad’s life. Rafe asks where Clyde is now. Shawn responds that he’s in a hospital room where they extracted the bullet and he’s now recovering. Jack arrives, asking them where Gwen is and if she’s okay. Rafe informs him that she’s stable, sedated, and pretty banged up but it looks like she’s going to be okay. Jack is relieved and asks where she is. Rafe says Sarah and Xander are in with her now and that Sarah can give him the full rundown of her injuries and condition. Jack thanks him. Rafe stops him and says there’s one more thing, revealing that Shawn found Clyde. Shawn reveals to Jack that Clyde tried to kill Chad, so EJ shot him. Jack asks if the bastard is dead. Shawn says no as the doctors just finished patching him up. Jack questions what room Clyde is in. Rafe doesn’t think he should do that right now. Jack asks again. Shawn tells Jack to just go be with Gwen right now. Jack says they said Gwen is stable with Sarah and Xander, so he asks again what room Clyde is in. Shawn agrees to take Jack to Clyde’s hospital room. Clyde lays in the hospital bed, handcuffed to the bed. Jack confronts Clyde and questions why he killed his daughter.

EJ brings Chad a cup of coffee. Chad thanks him. EJ tells Chad that it was his fault. Chad says he doesn’t have to but EJ says he knew Clyde was a threat to the family and kept it to himself. EJ admits that he should’ve put a stop to Clyde sooner and immediately. EJ declares that he failed Chad, Abigail, their kids, and the family. EJ states that he can never forgive himself for that and tells Chad that he’s very sorry. Chad responds that they both made mistakes and did things they regret, so there’s no point in keeping score now. EJ calls that very generous of him. Chad thanks EJ for coming to his rescue tonight and saving his life. They acknowledge each other as brother and shake hands. EJ guesses now he can tell him that tonight, he didn’t do it for Chad and jokes that he just wanted to shoot Clyde which Chad laughs at.

Clyde claims he doesn’t know what Jack has been told but that he never harmed a single hair on his daughter’s head. Jack says he should’ve known that Clyde wouldn’t be man enough to admit what he did. Clyde says he won’t say another word without an attorney. Jack says that’s fine and tells Clyde that what he did was unspeakably evil. Jack talks about Abigail being a mother, wife, and daughter but Clyde stole it all away and that will haunt him and his family for the rest of their lives. Jack wants Clyde to be haunted too by what he did. Jack hopes it kills him slowly and then he will begin to understand a fraction of the pain he caused them. Clyde mocks him performing and remarks that he’s better off without Abigail. Clyde then tells Jack that Abigail was no angel and calls her a slut that cheated on his son. Jack calls him a son of a bitch as Shawn takes Jack out of the room.

Xander sits with Gwen and says he doesn’t know if she can hear him but her father is on his way and until then, he will keep her company. Xander tells Gwen that she will be alright and that Sarah says she’s very lucky. Xander encourages Gwen as being one of the toughest women he ever met, so he knows she’ll be up in no time. Gwen then wakes up and questions what’s going on and what he’s doing here. Xander jokes that she was in a scuffle but fought valiantly and took down several men. Sarah then informs Gwen that she’s in the hospital as a victim of a possible hit and run which she questions. Rafe then enters the room and says he’s sorry to interrupt. Sarah tells him that Gwen just regained consciousness which Rafe says is great. Rafe greets Gwen and asks if she’s up to answering a few questions. Gwen says sure. Rafe assures her that he’s going to do everything in his power to find the person who did this to her.

Jennifer tells Julie that she should go because Jack needs her but Julie insists that Jack needs her to take care of herself. Jennifer says she’s fine but Julie says she isn’t. Julie brings up that Jack wasn’t around the last time that Jennifer started using painkillers, but she was, and that’s the reason she and Doug moved back in to the house to take care of her. Jennifer remembers and says she’s grateful but that’s not what is happening here. Julie tells Jennifer that she’s not fooling anyone. Julie knows Jennifer has been struggling and asks how long it has been. Jennifer then admits it’s been a few weeks. Julie questions why she didn’t talk to her. Jennifer cries that she was ashamed. Julie says they don’t judge her and want to help her. Jennifer admits that Maggie tried to help as she knew about the pills after finding them in her purse by accident. Jennifer says that Maggie watched her throw the pills out and took her to a meeting, but then she came back and got them out of the trash and took them all until the bottle was empty. Julie tells Jennifer that they all love her very much and she can’t presume the pain she has been going through, but she knows there is nothing more tragic than a parent losing a child. Julie knows Jennifer has been struggling to get through the day, but reminds her that her life is important too. Julie adds that with Abigail gone, Jennifer is the most important woman in her grandchildren’s lives so they are going to need her for a long time. Julie then hugs Jennifer as she cries.

Rafe asks Gwen if she’s sure she is ready. Gwen says her head is finally starting to clear. Jack enters the room, relieved to see that Gwen is alright. Gwen thanks him for coming. Jack asks her what happened. Rafe says they were just getting to that and asks if Gwen remembers anything about tonight. Gwen recalls walking to the car park at the police station when a car came speeding towards her. Gwen says it didn’t swerve and happened so fast. Jack asks if she thinks it was deliberate. Gwen supposes it was possible. Rafe asks if she saw the driver.

Julie suggests Jennifer get some sleep. Jennifer apologizes for worrying her and Jack as she can’t believe she went driving in that condition which isn’t her. Jennifer calls it all such a blur. Julie is glad she’s back home, safe and sound. Julie remarks that Jennifer is very lucky that she didn’t hurt herself or anyone else. Julie then takes Jennifer upstairs.

Gwen says she didn’t see the driver as the headlights blinded her. Gwen questions who would do something like this and then just drive off, right outside of a police station. Jack flashes back to Jennifer saying she drove to the police station.

Shawn sits with Clyde and informs him that Chad told him that Abigail wasn’t Clyde’s intended victim and that he intended to kill his wife. Clyde responds that he has the right to remain silent. Shawn warns Clyde that he will never rest until Clyde is back in prison and this time, he’s never getting out.

Belle informs EJ and Chad that Melinda is gone for the day, but she will speak to her on their behalf tomorrow morning. Chad asks if she spoke to Shawn. Belle confirms that she has and that Clyde is going to live. EJ points out that Clyde will be shipped off to prison for the rest of his life. Belle hopes knowing the truth can give Chad some peace of mind. Chad responds that Abigail finally gets some justice which she would want, especially for her kids and all of them. EJ hugs Chad as he cries.

Primetime TV Review: Celebrity Jeopardy

TV Review!

“Celebrity Jeopardy” Review on by Eva 9/28/2022

I was interested in watching this, show because I wanted to see if celebrities are smart or if they, are good entertainers There are 27 celebrities in this tournament and the ultimate winner gets $ 1 million for their charity .

In my opinion the questions are a bit easier than the daytime Jeopardy game, but it is a tournament for charity, so I am not bothered by the easier questions. One interesting change for this version of jeopardy is that they have a triple jeopardy round since then show is an hour long rather than the thirty-minute version in the daytime show. The winner of the game goes on to the semifinal game while the non-winners get $30, 000 for their charity.

If you like Jeopardy, you will enjoy this show and if you aren’t a Jeopardy watcher you might like this tournament because it is a bit less serious than the daytime show. Mayim Bialik hosts the tournament that airs on ABC on Sunday nights and streams the next day on Hulu or the ABC app.

I give this show 5 out of 5stars because I like it better than the daytime show.
