Billy: Here you go. Just take a seat. Nice and easy. All right.

Sharon: Thank you for all your help getting ms. Lawson checked in. And I appreciate you understanding that she needs to be around familiar faces right now. As her admitting therapist, I want to make sure that the staff will allow her to take this at her own pace, whatever is comfortable for her. She needs to work through her aversion to getting outside help.

Jean: Ah, well, that’s true of a lot of our patients.

Sharon: Well, I think in chelsea’s case, she feels her past experiences with therapists haven’t been so…helpful.

Jean: I understand. Let me assure you, this is the type of care we specialize in. And, of course, you and mr. Abbott are welcome to stay with her as long as she needs to get settled in.

Sharon: That sounds perfect. Thank you so much.

Jean: You’re welcome. So, I have spoken to the staff and the facility director. They have her medical files and her history. They’ll have a better idea of what it is she’s struggling with.

Billy: Okay, great. Thanks, sharon.

Sharon: Chelsea? I want you to know that you’re in a safe place. You’ll be well looked after here. Do you understand?

Billy: Chelsea. It’s important you realize what’s happening here.

Chelsea: No. No, no. No, I can’t be in a place like this. No, I can’t be in a place like this. Never again.

Lily: Hey.

Devon: Hello.

Lily: What’s going on? Do you want to talk about it?

Devon: Well, after I tell you what I found out, you’re gonna want to talk about it. I thought about calling you and then decided I should probably tell you in person.

Lily: Okay. Sounds serious.

Devon: Yeah. Nate took a new job.

Lily: Really? What’s he doing?

Devon: He’s running newman media for victoria.

Nate: Elena, this is a surprise. I’d be lying if I didn’t say how happy I am to see you. I missed you. A lot. So, um, how did things go in baltimore?

Elena: I didn’t take the job.

Adam: There you go.

Connor: Where’s mom? Don’t you have to work today?

Adam: Uh, I do. I didn’t realize that walnut grove was giving you guys a day off for a teachers’ professional development day. But I guess that makes sense, since most of you probably need to come down from your halloween sugar hangover.

Connor: Funny, dad. We didn’t eat that much candy last night.

Adam: No, if I knew you had the day off from school, I might have let you stay at beckett’s house.

Connor: Why? Where’s mom? Why can’t I just spend the day with her? (Dog barking)

Adam: Connor, I, uh — I’ve been trying to get ahold of your mother, but she, uh — she isn’t answering her phone.

Connor: Why not? Is something wrong?

Adam: She wasn’t feeling 100% yesterday, so she’s probably just sleeping. She’s probably just getting her rest and trying to recover.

Connor: She didn’t seem that sick. Can we go see her now? I have something I want to tell her.

Connor: Oh, yeah? What is that?

Connor: Johnny and I talked a lot last night. About her being his bio mom and stuff.

Adam: Well, that’s — that’s great. And that’s very grown up of the two of you.

Connor: We realized that we might have made a bigger deal out of it than it is. It really sounded bad when we first heard it. Mainly because I guess we just didn’t see it coming.

Adam: Yeah, that’s — that’s understandable, connor. You know, family stuff can be — can be complicated.

Connor: But it’s the truth, so it’s better we found out. And it doesn’t really change anything for either of us. But I need to tell mom. I want her to know that johnny and I both agreed on that.

Elena: I’ve been in a state of confusion since the last time we spoke.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, me, too.

Elena: The way we left things just didn’t feel right. And I couldn’t make a life-changing decision like moving to baltimore without at least trying to see if we could make things work.

Nate: That’s what I want, too. But I didn’t even dare hope it was a possibility.

Elena: So, do you have time to sit and talk about everything?

Nate: Um —

Elena: Or is there smewhere you need to be? We can do this another time.

Nate: No, no. This is the place I need to be right now. Nothing is more important to me than making time for us to figure things out. So much has happened since you’ve been gone.

Chelsea: Why would you bring me to this place? I don’t want to be here.

Billy: It’s okay. Look, uh… this is going to be different. It will. This is not the same as it was before, okay? You are in a much better place. And the help that you need this time, it’s different. And I know that you want the pain to stop, and this is the place to do that. And I will be with you every step of the way. Chelsea, look at me, okay? Hey. You can lean on me, for anything, okay? When this gets tough, I will be here with you. I promise you. You want to talk? You want to cry? You want to yell? Whatever it is, I’m not going anywhere.

Chelsea: No one can make that promise. No one can always be here.

Billy: Well, I am not no one. And I don’t care what happened before with anyone else. I will do this. With you.

Lily: Nate is working for victoria?

Devon: That’s right.

Lily: Wow.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, well, I guess we know he’s been sharing his information with.

Devon: Well, nate won’t admit that, but I have no doubt in my mind it’s victoria, ’cause why else would she just gift him a job like this now, you know?

Lily: You know what? It doesn’t even matter. It doesn’t matter. I don’t — it doesn’t matter what her motives are. We’ve removed the possibility of a takeover, so, fine.

[ Sighs ] Where do things stand between you and nate?

Devon: They don’t stand anywhere. Nothing’s changed with how I feel. I still think that what he did is unforgivable.

Lily: Well, have you given any more thought to nate’s claims about the animosity between you two coming from your ties to dad?

Devon: Mm-hmm, yeah, I have, actually. I had a conversation with abby about it, and then before I found out about this job, I talked to nate. And you know what I realized? It’s an excuse for him to let himself off the hook.

Lily: I mean, look, devon, there’s a chance that it could be a real possibility. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Devon: Lily, whether it’s true or not, how my connection to neil ties into my role as a ceo is irrelevant to the fact that nate did what he did to us.

Lily: Okay. All right. But let’s just set nate aside for a second and just look at this as neil’s kids, you know?

Devon: Sure.

Lily: I mean, it’s hard for me to let go of him, too, ’cause, I mean, he had his flaws, but I still always think of him as a superhero.

Devon: Yeah, no, I mean, you don’t have to tell me. He saved my life. So I’ve always looked at him like that. I remember when he learned braille while he was blind, just so he could read to moses.

Lily: I know. I mean, that’s amazing, right?

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: But that’s just who he was. Like, he just loved being a father. It was so important to him. I just wish that I realized it sooner. I mean, my god, I was such a rebellious teenager. You know, it’s like, growing up in paris, the last thing I wanted to do was move to genoa city. You know, but I came to realize what a wonderful man he was.

Neil: No one meant for it to be this way. Your mom and I, we both wanted you with us very much. But, you see, the way it worked out, you were in europe, and I’ve been here. I love you so much. Do you know that I kept every letter that you ever sent me? I saved them in that great, big, old shoe box that you and nate decorated together, you know, the one with the little, pretty flowers. It’s true. I’ll show you. Darling, I have every drawing that you sent me. I have every picture, every poem that you wrote about the places that you visited.

Lily: Okay. So you saved my letters. I guess that’s nice.

Neil: Yeah, it was even nicer getting them. And even better than that was having you show up here out of the blue today. I have missed you, lily. Did your mom tell you that I was hoping that you’d be able to stay until —

Lily: Mom didn’t say anything.

Lily: I just really wish I could go back to that time, you know, ’cause I was so cold and distant to him, and… all he wanted was my love.

Devon: Hey, but don’t be too hard on yourself, lily. You were a teenager, a teenager with a teenage mind. Just like me, when I used to give him a hard time in the beginning. I was too scared to let him in.

Neil: See, man, one day, you’re going to look back, and you’re going to realize that this right here, this was the crossroads. Before you know it, you’re going to be 18 years old. You’ll be a legal adult. What kind of man are you going to be? More importantly, what kind of man do you want to be? Let your life be driven with purpose. You know, you can do anything. You can be anything that you want to be, as long as you put your mind to it. It is your choice, man. Create your own future. You understand? Everything that I’ve accomplished, everything that I have in my life, is ’cause of neil. It was his belief in me that inspired me to be the man that I am today.

Adam: See, you mother must have something going on. It’s the only reason she wouldn’t answer the phone.

Connor: Maybe she’s avoiding me. I know that some of the things i said probably hurt her feelings. I don’t blame mom for wanting to avoid me. I just wish I could make it up to her.

Chelsea: What have I done? I’m so embarrassed. You must think the worst of me. What — what are people gonna think? Oh, my god. Who else knows?

Billy: No one. Okay? No one. And let’s not worry about that right now. The important thing is that you are here, safe, and you came here willingly because you want to get better. And you will.

Sharon: And I have made it clear to the facility that this whole process must and will go at your pace. You’re in control, and you can take as much time as you need. And that will hold true for your world outside of here, too. Billy and I have kept everything confidential.

Chelsea: Promise?

Sharon: Yes. And the facility will, too. It’s the law. And whenever, if ever, you decide you want to share what happened with anyone, the medical staff here and i will help you find a way to approach that in a way that’s right for you.

Billy: But right now, we’re going to focus on you, okay? Making sure that you get better. And don’t worry about connor. He’s going to be very well taken care of and loved. And he’s going to need his mom. Okay? He’s going to need you. So right now, the focus is getting you stable for thanksgiving so you can spend some time with your son. Okay? The virus that causes shingles is sleeping…

Jean: Hi, chelsea. I’m jean. I’m here to conduct an intake interview. I just need to ask you a few questions to see how you’re feeling. Hmm?

Chelsea: Okay.

Billy: Chelsea, do you want me to stick around? I’d be happy to if you want. Okay. Thank you.

Jean: You’re welcome.

Sharon: Hey, this might be a good time for us to get going. I have some things I need to take care of, and I’m sure you do, too.

Billy: Yeah. Yeah, maybe I should — I should go.

Sharon: Okay. Well, we need to follow the facility protocol. But we also need to think about a strategy for how we’re going to handle this with connor while keeping chelsea’s privacy. And by necessity, that’s going to involve adam.

Billy: Seems a little counterintuitive, doesn’t it? I mean, the guy’s responsible for chelsea’s misery.

Sharon: Well, you can’t blame it all on adam. Suicidal ideations can come from a culmination of factors in a person’s life that become overwhelming to them. Some of them may seem obvious and suffocating, while others that come from the outside may seem small but can put an enormous burden on someone’s shoulders. It’s just — it never comes from one thing.

Billy: I’m not saying adam’s fully responsible for chelsea’s condition, but he does make every situation worse.

Sharon: Well, he is connor’s father, so he will have to be involved in how and what we tell connor.

Elena: So, tell me. What’s been going on?

Nate: Well, I reached out to devon to try to patch things up. I admitted my mistakes and that I had a lot of regrets.

Elena: How did that go?

Nate: At first, I thought we were making some progress, but devon just couldn’t get there with me. I even tried to make him realize that his connection to nail might be a factor in his resistance to taking professional input.

Elena: You really think that’s what’s going on?

Nate: Yeah, a large part of it. On some level, maybe even subconsciously, devon feels it would be a betrayal of his father if he allowed anyone else to hold authority over what he built with neil.

Elena: I take it devon disagreed?

Nate: Strenuously at first. But we talked again, and I really felt we were making some progress, until our signals got crossed.

Elena: That’s too bad.

Nate: But I am not trying to put all the blame on devon. I had to admit to myself that I never fully forgave my cousin for the punch that ended my surgical career. So when I joined chancellor-winters, instead of taking the time to figure out what the work dynamics would be between us, peacefully and respectfully defining expectations, roles and responsibilities, I went into things ready for a fight that never needed to happen.

Elena: It makes a lot of sense.

Nate: I see much more clearly now what you were trying to tell me all along. I was looking at things all wrong, and my actions were wrong, too. Now I have to live with the guilt I feel for betraying my family.

Elena: I’m sorry. I know what it’s like to continually blame yourself for mistakes you’ve made. But does this at least mean that you’re on the road to forgiveness with devon and lily?

Adam: You don’t have anything to make up to your mom, okay? You’re allowed to have feelings. And you are allowed to express them. But were you intentionally trying to hurt her?

Connor: No. I was just angry.

Adam: That’s understandable. You know, we all are like that sometimes. But I hope you know your mother’s love for you runs deep. And it will always lead back to forgiveness where you’re concerned, no matter what you do, connor.

Connor: I get it.

Lily: For every moment we might regret, there’s so many amazing ones that we had. Remember when he and I talked before my second marriage to cane?

Neil: And I am always here for you. You know that.

Lily: I know. And speaking of which…

Neil: Mm-hmm?

Lily: You know how I said that I wanted to keep things casual ’cause it’s our second time getting married and, um, i wanted to walk myself down the aisle?

Neil: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, whatever it — what — whatever you want.

Lily: Well, good, because, um…I want you by my side.

Neil: You see that? You see that, right? ‘Cause that — that is what we have. That’s the daughter/father connection because —

Lily: [ Laughs ] You’re such a dork.

Neil: No, no, no, seriously. Wait. Whoa, hold on. I’m not a dork. I was thinking in my head right when you said that — right when you said it, I was like…

Lily: [ Laughs ]

Neil: …”Let me walk her down the aisle, let me w–” seriously.

Lily: Oh, my gosh. Okay. Well, clearly, you think very loud sometimes.

[ Laughs ]

Neil: Oh, yeah? And how about right now?

Lily: God, I mean, he just — he supported us no matter what. You know, he always gave us room to make our own decisions, whether he thought it was right or wrong.

Devon: I can’t help but think of one of the last conversations we had about the company

Neil: Regarding hamilton-winters, I want us to be a true team. I don’t want you ever to feel like I am talking down to you. I respect you a lot. I will never forget that you were the one who put up the capital to start this venture. You were the one who invited me to join.

Devon: Let me tell you, i know that we wouldn’t be nearly as successful if it wasn’t for your guidance. And that’s something that I will work very hard to never forget. I really missed having you around, man.

Neil: Not half as much as i missed you.

Devon: God, I miss him. There’s so many days that I try to power through, while thinking about him, without leaning into the pain. But, you know, it’s never not there. And I don’t think that it’s just going to magically disappear for us one day. I think that neil’s memories are always going to have a hold of us. And I don’t want to let that go.

[Kennedy theme music]

Lily: Hey.

Billy: Hi. Is everything all right?

Lily: Yeah, yeah, we’re fine.

Devon: We’re fine, yeah.

Billy: I can come back. I don’t want to intrude on any brother-sister business, you know?

Devon: Not at all. Not at all. It’s totally cool. Speaking of, uh, family business, I hear that you’re quitting.

Billy: Yeah. That’s right.

Devon: I’m a little surprised that you’d be walking away from your mother’s company at a time like this.

Billy: Well, I offered to stay, but lily said she’s got it handled. In fact, she insisted that now is probably the right time to move on.

Devon: Yeah, she did say that. And I’m going to defer to her on this ’cause you’re her coo. But I, uh — I definitely don’t think this is the best move for the company.

Billy: I understand where you’re coming from.

Devon: I know your mind’s already made up. So I wish you the best, and I will leave you guys to it. Mm-hmm.

Billy: Thank you.

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: So, how’s chelsea? You were pretty vague about what was going on.

Billy: Yeah, um… chelsea had an emotional break, and, uh, she’s going to need some time to recuperate. I’m sorry, I-I wish I could give you more details, but it’s not my story to tell, if you know what I mean. Sharon and I are trying to figure out the best way to support her through this ordeal.

Lily: Well, good. I’m glad that she’s getting the help she needs. And I’m glad that you did your part, so… I’m sure she’s going to be grateful when she comes out on the other side.

Billy: Sorry, lily. I-I don’t think you understand. Um…

Lily: Understand what?

Billy: Well, my part in this is not done. I promised chelsea that I would help her through this… every step of the way.

Nate: I’m afraid our family feud is nowhere near resolved. Devon isn’t willing to forgive me until I reveal who the ceo is I was collaborating with. In his eyes, I am still a traitor. And in lily’s eyes, too.

Elena: So why not give up victoria if that’s what it takes to get your family back?

Nate: Because victoria didn’t owe anything to devon, lily, or chancellor-winters. I did. I’m the one who betrayed them. It doesn’t make sense to drag victoria and newman enterprises into a battle.

Elena: I’m sure she can take care of herself.

Nate: Look, I just want all the fighting and bitterness to end. And the reality is, even if I did admit that I was colluding with victoria, I’m not sure it would make a difference. I have no idea if devon and lily will ever get past what I attempted to do.

Elena: But you’re going to keep trying, right?

Billy: Look, lily. Come on. I mean, you — you saw her last night. Can you really not understand that she needs support right now?

Lily: Yes, billy, I know that she’s going through a lot, and I really feel for her. Okay? But it’s frustrating that you have this endless mission to save every woman in your life. I mean, first it’s victoria, and now it’s chelsea.

Billy: So — so you don’t like the fact that I-I help people in distress? You’d rather me not be there for chelsea at all?

Lily: No, I mean, I know that she needs support. Okay? And I get that there aren’t a ton of people lining up to help her and that she needs you there. I get it. But, I mean, how much of your time and energy are you going to dedicate now to her?

Billy: I can’t answer that. All I can say is that I promised her that I was going to be there for her for as long as she needs, because I can’t in good conscience turn my back on her right now.

Jean: I want you to relax while I ask a few basic intake questions. You can take your time and answer to the best of your ability and recollection. If you’re not sure or don’t remember, that’s fine. We can just skip it. Understand?

Chelsea: Not really. I thought you had my medical history.

Jean: We do. But you’re more than just some notes in a file. You’re a living, breathing human being. This facility is designed to build relationships and help people to get better. So what kind of relationship would we have if I just assumed I knew everything about you based on what someone else wrote down about you in the past? I’d much rather hear what you have to say about yourself in the present.

Chelsea: Okay.

Jean: Are you ready to get started?

Chelsea: Yes. (Birds chirping)

Jean: Do you take any medications?

Chelsea: No.

Jean: Do you have any allergies that you are aware of?

Chelsea: No.

Jean: How about a history of alcohol or drug abuse? Married?

Chelsea: Not anymore.

Jean: Do you have any children?

Chelsea: I have, uh, two biological sons. And, um, I had a miscarriage due to a car accident.

Jean: Would you like to talk about your sons?

Chelsea: Well, um, only one of them is mine. Connor. The other one is johnny. Uh, and I gave him up to his father and his then-wife. I mean, I-I still see him sometimes, but —

Jean: Uh, we can move on. We can revisit that topic another time. When you’re ready. Have you ever been hospitalized? Can you tell me a little about what happened?

Chelsea: I tried to hurt somebody. A really wonderful man. Um, unfortunately, he’s no longer with us, though it wasn’t my doing, but —

Jean: You feel guilty all the same. Do you have any history of suicidal thoughts or prior attempts?

Chelsea: That’s, um — that’s why I’m here. I don’t even think I wanted to die. I just didn’t want to be in pain anymore. So, I-I don’t know. I just felt really alone, and I felt unworthy. And I felt like I was just ruining everything for everybody.

Jean: Tell me something. Do you have any supportive people in your life? The man and woman that were here with you earlier? They seemed very supportive and concerned. Maybe there are people in your world that you don’t even realize who are rooting for you. This is going to be my last question for now. Can you tell me what your goals are for being here?

Chelsea: I need help. I don’t want to hurt anymore. I want to get better. I just don’t know if that’s possible.

Nate: I have every intention of working as hard as I can to win back a place with my family. But I have no illusion that I’ll be successful. All I can do is hope.

Elena: Well, I have to believe that if you continue to keep trying, eventually you’ll get through to devon and lily.

Nate: In the meantime, I’ve had to move on professionally, both for my own stability and peace of mind.

Elena: What do you mean?

Nate: You’re looking at the new ceo of newman media.

Elena: Ceo? I thought that was sally spectra’s position.

Nate: It was. But that arrangement was on a trial basis, and apparently, sally wasn’t a good fit.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] So that’s it. Sally’s out, and you’re in? Wow. So that was the reward victoria offered up as a consolation prize for almost selling out your family.

Adam: [ Clears throat ]

Billy: Hey. Um, have you heard from chelsea’s facility?

Sharon: Yes, and they have advised me that so far, things are going really well. Chelsea was very open in her preliminary session, and they feel they have a good idea of how to proceed forward with her care. I really think that she’s going to get the help she needs there.

Billy: Very happy to hear that. Thank you. You know, I would turn around, but I can, uh, feel adam’s eyes burning a hole in my back from here. Have you thought of any — any ways to tell him and connor about chelsea?

Sharon: No. I think that we need to take our cues from chelsea and her doctor. However, I still feel that adam and connor need to be told something soon.

Billy: Yeah. I’m just worried about chelsea.

Sharon: Well, they’re still accepting visitors right now. You could head back over there and check in on her.

Laundry truths: The bargain

jug. 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.

One role of a lifetime…

one sore throat.

Devon: “Call when you can. So much going on. Nate now works for victoria. And I really miss my dad.”

Devon: Hey, man. Is abby here?

She hasn’t come in yet today. What can I get you?

Devon: Um, I’m just going to do a coffee. Thank you.

Nate: Why do you assume victoria’s job offer is something negative? Victoria needed a ceo for newman media, and she felt she could trust me in the position. There was no rewarding involved.

Elena: She already had a ceo. Except it was obviously someone she was trying to get rid of. So now she’s used you twice. First to try to steal chancellor-winters away from your family. And now you’re her justification for firing sally.

Nate: Is it really so impossible for you to understand that victoria just believes in me? Maybe someone finally wants to give me a chance.

Elena: I can’t believe that you are choosing to see this as some sort of kismet situation instead of exactly what it is. It’s a pat on the head for staying quiet about her part in a hostile takeover attempt.

Nate: Are you serious right now? What more do I have to do for you? I just told you that I accept and understand how wrong I was. I’ve gone to devon and lily showing regret and remorse, hoping to earn some modicum of forgiveness. And I’ve taken a new direction with my career. All the things you said I needed to do before you’d be willing to see me as the man you fell in love with. How is that not enough?

[ Keyboard clacks ]

Lily: “Lunch at society?”

Adam: I’m gonna get you a muffin, all right?

Sharon: What would you like?

Adam: I would like to know exactly what you and billy are hiding.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Chelsea: Thank you.
