Billy: You don’t like your blueberry muffin? I’ll get you a different kind.
Johnny: No, dad, this one’s fine.
Billy: What about a bagel? I can see they have a doughnut over there.
Johnny: Dad. I said this one’s fine. Guess you and mom have been reading the same how to handbook.
Billy: How to what?
Johnny: “How to help your child accept his bio mom.” Mom already talked me into a huge dinner last night and made me eat a big meal before coming here, even though she knew I was meeting you for breakfast.
Billy: And why do you think she did that?
Johnny: Obviously, stuffing your kid with so much food that he can’t feel anymore is a part of the handbook.
[ Footsteps approaching ]
Noah: Hey, babe. I didn’t expect to see you.
Allie: Hi. Well, I was on my way to the lab, but then I thought, “I’m gonna come see noah to start my day off right.”
Noah: Oh, well, I’m glad you showed up. I need something to brighten my morning.
Allie: How did the numbers turn out?
Noah: Better than expected, but not as good as I’d hoped.
Allie: Okay, uh… what do you think went wrong?
Noah: You know, I comped a lot of people. And I was figuring I’d take a hit, but I didn’t think it would be this bad.
Allie: Granted, I don’t have any experience running a business, but giving stuff away for free seems like a strange way to generate revenue.
Noah: Yeah, I know. I was trying to think long term, you know, build some customer loyalty in the hopes that the people who showed up last night turn into regulars.
Allie: Oh. Uh, yeah, that actually seems like a really smart move.
Noah: Yeah, I thought so, too, until I realized how it affected the profit margin. So, we are off to a really great start here.
Allie: Hey, don’t beat yourself up. You had a great opening night, so take a look around you and, noah, see what you built. I mean, this place is absolutely amazing. And so are you.
Noah: Thank you.
Allie: [ Chuckles ]
Abby: Chance? Babe. You got in late last night. Did you have a rough day yesterday?
Chance: No, no, no. Everything was fine. Why do you ask? You got something on your mind?
Abby: I’m just a little concerned with tucker being back in town. That man cannot be trusted. I know technically he may be dominic’s grandfather, but he should not be anywhere around our son.
Chance: Yeah, I heard he made, uh, a quite the entrance at summer and kyle’s ceremony. A lot of the neighbors called into the station and complained about all the helicopter noise.
Abby: See, that’s exactly what I’m talking about. I don’t want someone like that around dominic. He could endanger him, or at the very least, be a negative influence.
Chance: [ Chuckles ] Well, i think that’s a bit much, honey. I mean, dominic’s one. How is tucker gonna negatively influence a toddler?
Abby: There is nothing funny about how dangerous or manipulative that man can be. You need to back me up on this. Under no circumstance is tucker mccall allowed anywhere around our son.
Victoria: I’m really worried that billy and I made the wrong call on this. Telling johnny chelsea’s his biological mother has been really hard on him.
Nikki: My heart just breaks for him. I mean, this is the kind of thing that could throw his whole world into a tailspin, especially at his age.
Victoria: It really has. It’s shaken his foundation. It’s brought up questions that he never even knew he had until now.
Nikki: Well, I can’t begin to understand how you’re dealing with this, and yet you’re handling yourself with such poise, as if nothing was wrong. I am sure that nobody at kyle and summer’s vow renewal had any idea what you were going through.
Victoria: Well, believe me, every second is an uphill battle. I just honestly have been trying to compartmentalize. And when I’m in work, I lean into work and get as much done so I can get home and be with the kids.
Nikki: Well, that can’t be easy with everything going on at newman right now.
Victoria: It just feels like everywhere I turn there’s an avalanche of complications coming at me, at work and in life. And it feels like everything is screaming for my attention these days.
Nikki: No doubt tucker’s surprise return is one of them.
Victoria: Yeah, that is troubling, especially since tucker mccall is always working an angle. But right now, I have no idea what that might be. Hi, my name is tony cooper, and I’m going to tell you about exciting medicare advantage plans that can provide broad coverage and still may save you money on monthly premiums and prescription drugs. With original medicare you are covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits but you have to meet a deductible for each, and then you’re still responsible for 20% of the cost. Next, let’s look at a medicare supplement plan. As you can see, they cover the same things as original medicare, and they also cover your medicare deductibles and coinsurance. But they often have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage. Now, let’s take a look at humana’s medicare advantage plans. With a humana medicare advantage plan, hospitals stays, doctor office visits and your original medicare deductibles are covered. And, of course, most humana medicare advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. With no copays or deductibles on tier 1 prescriptions, and zero dollars for routine vaccines, including shingles, at in-network retail pharmacies. In fact, in 2021, humana medicare advantage prescription drug plan members saved an estimated $9,600 on average on their prescription costs. Most humana medicare advantage plans have coverage for vision and hearing. And dental coverage that includes two free cleanings a year, plus dentures, crowns, fillings and more! Most humana medicare advantage plans include a silver sneakers fitness program at no extra cost. You get all of this for as low as a zero-dollar monthly plan premium in many areas; and your doctor and hospital may already be a part of humana’s large network. There is no obligation, so call the number on your screen right now to see if your doctor is in our network; to find out if you could save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide. Humana, a more human way to healthcare. Suffering from sinus congestion,
Nikki: So, what are your thoughts about tucker? Any theories on what angle he might be working?
Victoria: The same angle that he’s always working — acquisitions.
Nikki: And is there some reason why you think he might be coming after newman?
Victoria: No. We’re too strong for that, but he can’t be trusted. Tucker mccall always has an agenda. In the past, he went after every big company in genoa city, and while I know he’s not coming after us, I have another plan in play that I think he might be trying to sink his teeth into.
Nikki: And what plan is that?
Victoria: I have it on good authority that chancellor-winters is about to go public. And I have devised a strategy for newman enterprises to swoop in and become the majority stockholder.
Nikki: And how did you find out this information?
Victoria: It’s all thanks to nate. He and I made a deal to work together while you were in los angeles.
Nikki: Really? Why would he go behind his family’s back?
Victoria: Mother, nate has become a very savvy businessman, and he feels that the current structure at chancellor-winters is limiting his opportunities. So I told him that I would put him in charge once we obtain a majority stake.
Nikki: And your father approves of this?
Victoria: Dad’s completely on board. Nicholas is the only one with any objections. He thinks it’s too risky. And I can’t lie. It is a bit of an ethical gray area.
Nikki: Mm-hmm. Well, I think it might be a bit of a legal gray area, as well.
Victoria: It’s a thin line, but I’m certain that nate and i can take care of it. What’s more pressing to me is — has tucker mccall come here because he has the same goal?
Chance: Look, I’m sorry, but you don’t think you’re overreacting just a little?
Abby: No. I don’T. I have seen the pain and devastation that man has caused firsthand. He’s already hurt people that i love, and I’m not gonna sit around and allow him to hurt our son. And honestly, I mean, I’m a little annoyed that you’re not supporting me on this.
Chance: Look, I just think you’re taking this a little too far — because there’s something else that you should know firsthand.
Abby: Okay. What’s that?
Chance: Well, just because someone’s made mistakes in the past doesn’t mean they can’t be a good parent or grandparent today, right?
Abby: [ Scoffs ] So now you’re talking about my family?
Chance: Look, abby, all I’m saying is that I think we need to keep pushing forward, let go of the past, focus on the now, and focus on the future because, honey, that’s all I can handle at the moment. My priorities have to be work and my family.
Abby: Well, it’s good to know that your family at least made the top two.
Chance: [ Sighs ] Please. Please don’t start that again.
Billy: Okay, smart guy, you don’t have to finish your muffin. I’m not going to force-feed you anymore, alright?
Johnny: Thank you. My stomach says thank you.
Billy: Well, good. And I’ll tell your mother to stop doubling down on the meals for you.
Johnny: Look, I get it. You guys are just concerned. But you really don’t have to worry.
Billy: Johnny, we’re your parents. We’re always going to worry, okay? That’s kind of what we do. We’re gonna be protective of you.
Johnny: But I really — i don’t need protection. I mean, so, chelsea’s my birth mom. Whatever. I knew I had one. She’s it. I’m over it.
Billy: You know, I don’t think it’s that simple, buddy.
Johnny: You guys are the ones who are making it so over-complicated. I mean, I really just want to get, like, back to normal.
Billy: Well, in my personal experience, when you don’t try to deal with things, they fester and they become problems down the road.
Johnny: Yeah, but — look, I’m really — I’m really not, like, freaked out about it or anything. So, if you want me to scream or cry, I’m sorry, but it’s not gonna happen.
Billy: I don’t want you to do anything. I just want you to know that we’ll be here for you whenever you need us, with whatever you’re going through.
Johnny: I don’t want to keep thinking about this every single day.
Johnny: Can we just drop it? I mean, it’s not gonna change anything, right?
Billy: I will tell you this as many times as I need to tell you — nothing is going to change. I promise you. And you also need to know that no one is gonna force you into anything, okay?
Johnny: Do you really mean it?
Billy: I do.
Johnny: I don’t want to keep talking about this all the time. You said it was my choice.
Johnny: Then I’ve made my decision. So, it’s done now, right?
Billy: That’s right. It’s done. It’s your call.
Johnny: Okay, great. So, it’s my choice, and I decide that I never want to talk about it again.
Billy: Hey, where are you going?
Johnny: School, dad. Remember school?
Billy: Yeah, I remember school. I’ll give you a ride.
Johnny: No, we’re actually meaning at chancellor park to do some sort of nature thing.
Billy: Okay, cool. Well, I’ll walk with you.
Johnny: Uh, no, we can skip that, too.
Billy: What’s going on here? You gonna be embarrassed of me when I call out and yell out, “johnny, I love you, buddy, have a good day,” in front of all your friends?
Johnny: Don’t even think about it.
Billy: How are they gonna know if I don’t announce it to everybody?
Johnny: I’d rather they& didn’t, dad.
Billy: Hey. Hey. I love you.
Johnny: [ Chuckles ]
Allie: Look how many people showed up for your big opening night. It was a great turnout.
Noah: Yeah, I was surprised how many people showed up.
Allie: Yeah, everybody was hanging out, enjoying themselves, enjoying the music, the drinks. I got to say, even in L.A., I’ve never experienced anything quite like it.
Noah: Oh, yeah? I bet you did a lot of clubbing out in hollywood, huh?
Allie: Okay. Okay. Don’t judge a book by its cover. I took the occasional study break.
Allie: And in my opinion, this place can rival any nightclub anywhere. And I’m sure that, uh, the people who came from far and wide to check it out would also agree.
Noah: Far and wide, huh? You, uh — you’re referring to audra?
Adam: Hi, sharon.
Sharon: Hey. Um, you want your usual?
Adam: [ Chuckles ] You know what I like.
Sharon: Got it. So, how are things going?
Adam: [ Sighs ] Mnh.
Sharon: Ah? [ Chuckles ] How are you getting along with sally these days?
Adam: Uh, nothing has changed since the last time we spoke about it. Looks like things are over between us.
Sharon: Yeah? Well, I’m sorry to hear that. I thought you two had some potential. It seemed like you had a strong connection.
Adam: Well, I thought so, too, but, um…I guess not.
Sharon: Mm. Hey, by the way, um, I had an interesting conversation with chelsea last night. And I don’t want to alarm you or anything, but she got me kind of worried. Our conversation was rather disturbing.
Johnny: I should have just waited at crimson lights.
Chelsea: Hi, johnny. I didn’t expect to run into you here. If you’re on medicare, remember,
Chelsea: I’m actually really glad I ran into you because i want — um…I — I wanted to thank you for all that time you spent with connor at the pool the other day. He had so much fun with you. And he — he really enjoys any time he gets to spend with his older…cousin. He looks up to you, and I really appreciate how sweet and patient you are with him.
Johnny: You can stop, okay? I know the truth about him and you, and it’s not going to change anything because you are not my mom.
Nikki: I can’t believe tucker would have access to the chancellor-winters board. Hasn’t he been selling off his assets?
Victoria: That whole thing was a crock. The only thing that he was willing to part with was that bentley that he tried to give to summer and kyle.
Nikki: Ugh, thank god they didn’t accept it. That gift would have come with a lot of strings attached.
Victoria: Do you think that he bought chancellor board members gifts to get information?
Nikki: I wouldn’t put it past him. Hey, listen, if you can have a mole at chancellor-winters, so can he.
Victoria: Yes, it’s possible, but in my opinion, it’s unlikely. There is a chance, however, that devon made an offhand comment to his father.
Nikki: Oh, I don’t think he would do that. I mean, it’s not like tucker is his business adviser. There would be no reason for devon to bring it up.
Victoria: That’s true. And as far as I know, they’ve barely been in contact the past couple of years. And besides that, devon has been in the corporate world long enough to know that you keep something like that under wraps, especially with someone like tucker. He knows exactly the kind of person his father is.
Nikki: Mm-hmm. A dedicated corporate raider, like you.
Victoria: Now, don’t tell me that you share the same disapproving attitude as nicholas does because I want to acquire chancellor-winters.
Nikki: Not at all. I am simply saying you cannot underestimate tucker.
Victoria: Believe me, I’m not. Regardless of how tucker found out, it would be foolish to think that he doesn’t know something about the impending ipo.
Nikki: Yeah, well, if he does, you can be sure that he is going to make a move to try to take control of the company. So I would advise that you keep your guard up and your eyes open.
Noah: I hope audra’s sudden appearance hasn’t upset you at all. I promise I didn’t invite her here, and I no way expected her to just show up. Last time we spoke, I was still living in london. There’s been no communication since.
Allie: I know it’s over& between you guys, whether she’s 4,000 miles away or just 4.
Noah: So, you’re — you’re not concerned?
Allie: Not a bit. In fact, I — I haven’t given it another thought since last night.
Noah: Well, good — ’cause like I said, she’s absolutely no threat to us.
Abby: Don’t start with what?
Chance: Do not read into the order in which I say things, okay? Work, family. Family, work. You should know now that family is more important to me.
Abby: Well, it hasn’t really felt that way recently.
Chance: Abby, it is because i care so much about this family that I am just suggesting that you take a second and consider whether all this stuff about tucker is based on personal alliances or rivalries — or if you actually have our family’s best interests at heart. Okay? Think about it. I got to go to this meeting. I’m gonna be late.
Abby: I thought you said your meeting wasn’t for another couple of hours.
Chance: I guess I misspoke. I don’t know. I got to go now. Bye.
Chance: [ Smooches ]
Abby: [ Sighs heavily ]
Adam: You found chelsea’s demeanor disturbing in what way?
Sharon: Well, I don’t want to break her confidence, but I did tell her that I think she should get back into therapy. Whatever chelsea’s juggling emotionally right now, it just seems like it’s a little bit too much for her to handle on her own.
Adam: [ Sighs ] And how did that suggestion go over?
Sharon: Not so well.
Sharon: But, you know, you two share a bond because of connor. She might be more open to you. I think maybe she would be more open to the suggestion of therapy if it were coming from connor’s father instead of me.
Adam: Well, unfortunately, not so much. I already tried. It’s like the more that I try to address things with her, the more she pushes me away. Last time we talked, we got into it because she decided to tell connor that johnny was his brother without me being present. Even though we agreed to do it together, she just decided to push ahead on her own. It’s like she’s in this space where she just rejects anything that she doesn’t agree with. And I’ve just been noticing this downward spiral of hers for a while now.
Nikki: Yeah. So have I.
Adam: Yeah. And I’m afraid that I am responsible for her initial breakdown that she has yet to recover from. That’s why I want to help her. I want to help her for her sake and for connor’s sake.
Sharon: You can’t put all the blame on yourself for what’s happening.
Adam: I just — I don’t understand. I feel like I’m missing something, like I don’t have all the pieces. I don’t understand how all of this has led her to have some new fixation on johnny. Did you know luxury hair repair
“The young and the restless”
Chelsea: Johnny, of course not. I’m not your mother. Victoria is your mom, and i would never try to force anything on you.
Chelsea: I just… you know, um, I just thought since we were already in each other’s lives, I didn’t want you to find out from somebody else and end up resenting us for keeping this secret from you. I didn’t want you to wonder about me.
Johnny: So, it was you. You are why my parents decided to force this on me now?
Chelsea: No. I mean, it was — it was something we decided together.
Johnny: But it was your idea in the first place. You are why my world feels like it was just flipped upside down.
Chelsea: Johnny, I’m sorry. That was not my intention. That was not my intention. I just — I wanted you to know that your birth mother cared about you. I always have, and I always will.
[ Sighs ]& And, you know, I mean, this wasn’t just about me. I thought — I thought you and connor could have a deeper connection as brothers.
Johnny: We’re cousins, okay?! And we know each other plenty. What about connor? Does he know the truth now, too?
Sharon: Please don’t repeat this to anyone, but after talking with chelsea, I get the feeling that she’s adrift. She’s looking for answers anywhere she can find them. She’s looking for someone or something just to make her feel whole.
Adam: Well, based on what I’ve seen, that rings true.
Sharon: I imagine that connor has been a focal point for her. Ever since he was born, he helps her feel grounded. But people and things outside of ourselves can only help us for so long if we don’t fix what’s going on inside. And the more and more that chelsea gets goes adrift, she looks around for someone to make her feel anchored. And right now, that anchor is johnny, and she’s clinging to that desperately.
Adam: Yeah, but, sharon, that’s not fair to johnny.
Sharon: No, it is not.
Adam: And it’s just as unfair for her to use connor to draw johnny in closer.
Sharon: Well, I don’t think that chelsea’s intentionally being malicious or trying to be harmful. I think she just doesn’t really know what she’s doing. She’s trying to stay emotionally afloat.
Adam: Well, then I guess i can’t hold her fully responsible if she doesn’t even comprehend what she’s doing is wrong. But as much as I’m concerned about her, my primary focus has to be shielding my son because i refuse to let this hurt connor.
Chelsea: Yes. Connor knows who you are. I told him shortly after billy and victoria told you about me.
Johnny: Mm. And how’d he take it? That well? Huh! Guess that just proves my point. Having this conversation was a bad idea all around. Neither connor nor I want anything to change. So, why don’t we just pretend that we never had this conversation and bring things back to the way they’re supposed to be?
[ Cellphone pings ] Sorry. I got to go. I’m in the wrong place.
[ Sighs ]
Devon: Hey. Is everything alright with you?
Abby: Yes, of course.
Abby: How did things go with tucker last night? Did he take my hint and just leave town?
Devon: Oh, that was a hint?
[ Both laugh ]
Abby: I guess I didn’t really hide my feelings that I truly detest the man.
Devon: Mm, you were far from subtle.
Adam: Mm-hmm. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to offend you. I know he is your biological father, and that makes him technically dominic’s grandfather. Ugh.
Devon: Why don’t you tell us how you really feel?
[ Both laugh ] I’d hate to see your full-out warnings and threats to people.
Abby: So, when I walked away, was he shaking with fear?
Devon: No. Not at all. Not at all. The rest of our dinner actually went really well. We just talked a lot, talked about family, talked about him coming to town to reconnect with people.
Devon: Least that’s what he says he’s doing. I don’t know what to make of him showing up like this. It’s so random. It’s kind of thrown me for a loop.
Abby: Yeah, it was a shock to everyone.
Devon: And from what he said, he’s planning on sticking around for a while and putting down roots.
Abby: And how do you really feel about that?
Devon: Mnh. When you can’t sleep…
[ Knock on door ]
Billy: Got a minute?
Victoria: Sure. Come on in.
Billy: I wanted to fill you in on my morning with johnny. I feel like we’re making some progress.
Victoria: How so?
Billy: Well, his sarcasm is back and in full effect. That’s for sure.
Victoria: That’s a good sign.
Billy: Yeah, it is. He was critiquing the similarities in our parenting skills. I guess we’re both using food as a coping mechanism. I was questioning why he wasn’t finishing his muffin, and he informed me that you already force-fed him a massive breakfast this morning.
Victoria: Oops. Sorry about that. I forgot that you were meeting him at the coffeehouse.
Billy: It’s all good. He feels less confused and less angry. And I’m hoping that this is him coming to terms with the news.
Victoria: I’m really relieved to hear that.
Billy: But don’t get me wrong. He definitely does not want anything to change. And I made him a promise that nothing would.
Victoria: Absolutely. And I told him the same thing. I do, however, have one concern. How is chelsea gonna react when she finds out that this little scenario of hers isn’t going her way?
Chance: Look how happy and simple things are for these kids. They’re just playing, enjoying the day, having fun. Oh, the carefree lifestyle of youth. Mm. It’s hard not to miss those days sometimes.
Chelsea: It’s us adults who inevitably yank all that innocence and free spirit away.
Chance: Hey, is something wrong?
Chelsea: The world is a cruel and unforgiving place. What’s the point in trying to make it any less horrible? Why bother trying to make things better?
Chance: Hey, I was gonna hit crimson lights and have a coffee. I know I could sure use the company, if you want to join me.
Nikki: [ Clears throat ] Sorry to interrupt you two.
Noah: Hey. It’s always good to see you, grandma.
Allie: Hi, mrs. Newman.
Nikki: Noah, this is beautiful. What a fabulous job you’ve done.
Noah: Thank you.
Noah: Well, I’m glad you like it. Anytime you want to come, vip section with your name on it, overflowing with sparkling cider on the house.
Nikki: Well, now, darling, i must tell you that if you keep comping everybody, you’re not gonna make a profit.
Noah: I am quite aware of that now. And judging by last night’s numbers, your warning is pretty justified.
Nikki: Oh, don’t worry about that. That was just the first night. All businesses need a little time to become successful.
Allie: That’s what I keep telling him. This place gonna blow up, noah.
Noah: Well, thank you for the encouragement.
Nikki: Um, I have something I’d like to discuss with you if you have a moment.
Noah: Oh, yeah? What’s that?
Nikki: It has to do with your time in london.
Allie: You know what? I should get going, or else I’m gonna be late. It was lovely to see you again, mrs. Newman.
Nikki: You too.
Noah: Bye, babe.
Noah: [ Sighs ]
Nikki: Allie’s lovely. It’s nice to see the two of you getting so close.
Noah: Yeah, she’s pretty great. Please. So, what did you want to know about london?
Nikki: Well, um, I was wondering if you came across any artist funds while you were there.
Noah: I reached out to a couple, but I had really limited experience.
Nikki: Have you ever heard of a company called private image limited?
Noah: No, that name doesn’t ring a bell.
Nikki: Well, actually, the fund is called wild beauty, incorporated.
Noah: Why do you ask?
Nikki: It’s related to some questions I have about diane’s time in los angeles. You didn’t live this strong, this long to get put
Noah: Okay, this is all sounding a little odd to me. Why would diane have anything to do with the art fund? She was supposedly living this quiet life in L.A. Wild beauty — they were throwing a lot of money around.
Nikki: Oh, so, you have heard of it?
Noah: Yeah, I knew someone who worked there.
Nikki: Really? Was this person a friend of yours?
Noah: Not exactly. It was the, uh — the woman i was seeing in london.
Nikki: [ Gasps ] Oh. The one who —
Noah: Yeah. Yeah, that one. Her name’s audra charles.
Nikki: Well, can you tell me a little bit about what she did there, who she worked for? I mean, it could be very important, but I-I don’t want to dredge up any bad memories for you.
Noah: Oh, no, no, it’s — it’s fine. Audra was actually already on my mind.
Nikki: Well, I just saw how happy you and allie are. So, why on earth would you be thinking of your ex?
Noah: Well, because suddenly she’s impossible to avoid.
Nikki: What do you mean?
Noah: Okay, I hadn’t seen audra since I came back from london, and then last night she shows up out of nowhere. And not only was she in genoa city, but she was right here at the club.
Nikki: She came all the way from london to attend your opening night?
Noah: She said she was here for other reasons, but — and she found out I opened up this place and wanted to check it out. Yeah, but now you’re talking about wild beauty, and this all just seems kind of weird to me.
Nikki: Yes. Very weird. And very interesting.
Devon: Honestly, abby, i don’t — I don’t really know how I feel about tucker coming back to town, whether it’s for a short period of time or permanently. You know, there’s nothing bad between us. There’s no tension. If anything, there’s just been more distance between us over the years, which is another reason why it’s so surprising that he just showed up like this.
Abby: Do you ever wish you had a closer relationship with him?
Devon: I mean, yeah, of course I do. He’s my biological father, so i would — I would love to have a tighter bond with him, especially with neil being gone. But at the same time, it’s hard to always trust his intentions, given his past. And with chancellor-winters doing so well right now, his timing is a little suspicious.
Abby: Do you think that’s why he turned up so suddenly?
Devon: I don’t want to think that, but, you know, it’s tucker. And he always has another card to play. So I can’t help but wonder what’s really going on and what his real agenda is.
Billy: I don’t want to speculate on how chelsea is going to react, but I will say that she seems a lot more fragile than I have seen her in a while.
Victoria: Come on, billy. We both know what chelsea’s capable of when she’s in a bad place, and it’s not our responsibility to temper that. The best thing that we can do is try to keep johnny as far away from her as possible. And in the meantime, I think that’s probably the safest bet for all of us.
Billy: [ Sighs ]
Victoria: Billy, johnny has got to be our main priority right now.
Billy: I understand that.
Victoria: He can’t deal with this kind of turmoil on his own. We’ve got to be there for him.
Billy: I agree 100%. But I can’t help but be a little worried about chelsea.
Victoria: Well, then be worried about her from afar. Chelsea needs to pull herself together and stop using our son as her crutch.
Adam: Chelsea. Hi.
Chelsea: Is sharon here?
Adam: Uh, she just stepped back in the back room.
Chelsea: What’s going on here?
Adam: What do you mean?
Chelsea: Are you and sharon conspiring against me, discussing all the things that are wrong with me?
Adam: What? No. Of course not.
Chelsea: Are you all — what, you’re all working together, trying to fix me? Is that why you brought me here?
Adam: Chelsea, calm down. Nobody is conspiring against you or trying to fix you. Um, we’re just — we’re concerned about you.
Chelsea: I don’t need your concern. And I don’t need your pity. And I don’t need your judgments. All I am trying to do is spend some time with my other son. I want to be a part of his life. And I want him to be a part of mine!
[ Exhaling heavily ]
Next week on
“the young and the restless”…
Nate: I haven’t been operating in good faith.
Lily: Why would you do something like that?
Devon: This is about you and me, isn’t it?
Chelsea: It was such a beautiful day. I had to —
