Connor: Mom, your new apartment is really cool. But you know what the coolest part is?
Connor: You’re back and we’re together.
Chelsea: I’m so happy to be back. I missed you so much. And I look forward to spending so much time here together.
Connor: Can I decorate my new room however I want?
Chelsea: Uh, sure. Well, I mean, within reason. Maybe we can do it together. It’ll be our own special project.
Connor: Yeah, that would be fun.
Chelsea: Yeah. And we can do movie nights and we can eat popcorn and get special treats downstairs at crimson lights.
Chelsea: Just the two of us.
Connor: That sounds nice, mom. But will you promise me something?
Connor: Promise you won’t disappear on me again?
Ashley: Hi. What are you doing here? I was on my way to see you. What’s wrong, honey?
Abby: Uh, sorry. I just — I couldn’t sit there any longer. It hurt too much.
Ashley: What’s going on? What? What? What?
Abby: [ Voice breaking ] Mom, it’s bad. It’s a really bad.
[ Sniffles ]
Diane: [ Sighs ]
[ Scoffs ] Why aren’t you responding to my messages?
Jack: As you can see, I am at work. I don’t want to be here late today. If you don’t mind, I really don’t have time for interruptions.
Diane: [ Sighs ] Obviously, you’re working. And I can see that you’re busy, but that is no excuse for ignoring my calls. I have an urgent matter that i need to discuss with you.
Jack: There is always something urgent with you. I’m sorry. I don’t have time for your drama right now.
Diane: Okay, well, maybe you don’t want to see me and you don’t want to speak to me, but you at least need to listen to what I have to say.
Nick: [ Sighs ] I guess, uh, see ya around?
Sally: [ Inhales sharply ] Yeah. Um…you know, after our talk earlier, I, uh — I don’t know. I feel like there’s still so much left unresolved. Would you maybe want to join me for a drink and find some answers? Wait. I just want to be clear. I still do not want to talk about your loan offer. So, if you bring it up…
Nick: We can discuss or not discuss whatever you want.
Sally: [ Breathes deeply ]
Chelsea: There’s something i need to share with you.
Connor: Okay. Sounds serious.
Chelsea: It is serious. I want to tell you where I’ve been the past few days. Do you remember when I was in the hospital last year?
Connor: Yeah. After you got out, we went to see grandma.
Chelsea: That’s right. Do you remember why I was in the hospital?
Connor: I thought it was because you were sick. Are you sick again? Is that what you need to tell me? Why do dermatologists worldwide recommend
Adam: Connor, everything is going to be okay. Just give your mom some time to explain, okay?
Chelsea: Last year, um… last year, I needed help because I was having trouble determining what was real. I was feeling lost, and i couldn’t distinguish what was right or wrong. I was feeling confused, so it was hindering me from focusing on what was important. But I recovered, and I thought that that was past me. And then over the past few days, I could feel myself slipping again, except it felt different this time. It, um… it felt worse, actually. So I decided it was best if i went back to the hospital.
[ Sighs ] Um… connor, tell me, do you — do you know what depression is?
Connor: I think it’s like being sad. Is that why you went to the hospital? Because you felt sad?
Chelsea: That was one of the reasons.
Connor: [ Voice breaking ] I’m sorry, mom. I didn’t mean to make you sad. I didn’t mean to hurt you about johnny or me or anything else. I was just scared.
Chelsea: Oh, connor.
Connor: [ Exhales heavily ]
[ Chair legs scrape ] Let me buy you a drink.
Tucker: No, I’m just waiting on a to-go order.
Phyllis: Oh, come on. One drink. Sit down. It’ll be fun. You work so hard. Come take a load off.
Sally: So, how do you think things are gonna go at newman media under the new leadership?
Nick: Well, I don’t know if nate’s the right man for the job. And I hate to say it, but his recent behavior has me questioning the man’s integrity.
Nick: Plus, I was a real big fan of the old regime. You made a believer out of me, sally. I know you may not be open to it, but I’m hoping you take my offer for a loan as a vote of confidence in your talent.
Sally: As opposed to…?
Nick: Personal favor, i guess.
Sally: [ Clears throat ] Well, despite the fact that you promised not to press me on the issue, I am very grateful for your generous offer.
Nick: Great. Then we can, uh —
Sally: But before you say anything else, I do want to make something perfectly clear. I do not want anyone, including you, thinking that I’m trying to manipulate a romantic situation. ‘Cause there is going to be a ton of people out there who will immediately jump to that conclusion. We both know who they are. That is 100% not who I am. And if there is any doubt on that, then I don’t want your money.
Jack: Honestly, I’m really not interested in what you have to say. Lately, there is always some fresh hell.
Diane: The hell started when tucker mccall came back to town. Jack, you need to watch out for him.
Diane: Because there is one last thing about the deal I made with tucker out in L.A. That i haven’t told you yet.
Jack: Of course there is.
Diane: What you don’t know is that tucker wanted me to share any information or documents i could find pertaining to the financial stability of jabot.
Diane: Yes, he’s obviously looking for a weakness that he can use to exploit the company.
[ Folder thuds ] But I — no! I never gave tucker anything. I mean, you have to know that i would — I would never do that to you or kyle.
Jack: One more lie. One more secret. One more deceit. Another shoe dropping, right on schedule! If you were so loyal, if it was so important for me to have this critical information, why did you hold on to it for so long? Why is it coming out just now?
Diane: [ Sighs ] How white do you think your teeth really are?
Diane: I wanted to tell you before, but I didn’t want to cause any more problems for the family than necessary. Really. Before tucker came back to genoa city, I had no intentions of giving him any information about jabot. But then once he showed up here, I knew that whatever he had planned was not going to be derailed by my lack of cooperation.
Jack: How many times did i ask you if there was more to your arrangement with mccall?
Diane: [ Sighs ] I-I know. I-I know. I was — I was trying — I was trying to handle it by myself and — and making it all go away. I was looking for the perfect opportunity to set a trap for him. I thought that if I could discover his true intentions, then I could catch him red-handed. Jack, you do remember what a ruthless man tucker is. And not to mention all the dangerous people he’s been associated with.
Jack: Yeah, you told me you had plenty of dangerous people in your life, as well.
Diane: [ Sighs ] You mean jeremy stark. And that is exactly who I’m talking about. Because I didn’t get the information to tucker about jabot, he is threatening to use jeremy as a way to get revenge on me.
Jack: Wait. How does he intend to do that?
Diane: Tucker has already told ashley about my connection to jeremy. Jeremy served 6 years of a 10-year prison sentence, but he’s about to be released, and we can be sure that he is not coming out reformed. And now — now, on top of that, nikki and phyllis and ashley are threatening to plant the idea in jeremy’s head that I helped put him away. If they’re successful, he’s gonna want payback.
Abby: I think my marriage might be over.
Ashley: What are you talking about?
Abby: Chance doesn’t think he’s the right person for me. And the worst part is he doesn’t think he wants to be.
Ashley: I don’t understand, honey. You found him. You brought him home when everybody thought he was dead. I mean, you’ve been by his side every step of the way. He went through all this trauma, and there you were. And now he wants to leave this marriage without provocation?
Abby: But he was. He — he was provoked.
Ashley: Did he cheat on you?
Abby: No, mom.
[ Sniffles ] It wasn’t chance. Chance didn’t do anything wrong. It was me. I cheated on him.
[ Sighs heavily ]
Adam: [ Sighs ] Come here, connor. Listen to me.
Connor: [ Sniffles ]
Adam: Nothing that happened is your fault. None of the things your mother is dealing with right now you caused, okay?
Chelsea: Your father is telling you the truth. This is not about one thing that happened or one person. The truth is I have been struggling with a few things in my life, both past and present. But look how things have turned around for me, huh? I was looking for a stable, safe place to live, besides the hotel, and look — I found this great apartment, right?
[ Sighs ] Connor, I — I was just struggling with, um, some stuff with my work. And then — and then we lost rey so suddenly. I know that was really hard on us, right?
Connor: I miss him.
Chelsea: I know. And then I think it was just hard for me when johnny didn’t embrace the news about me being his biological mom. Giving birth to the two of you is the best thing that has ever happened to me. You are my whole world. You know that, right?
Chelsea: Yeah. And I guess I just — I don’t know. I guess I was hoping, you know,
[Sighs] Johnny could be a part of our family and he could add some light to a life that is already so bright because you’re in it. But it’s not johnny’s fault, either. You know, he’s — he’s allowed to have his feelings.
[ Sighs ] Anyway, um, I am working really hard with my doctors at the hospital to figure out why i went through this period of sadness and — and how I can get better.
Connor: Is it over now?
Nick: Sally, I don’t think you’re manipulating our relationship. There’s nothing illicit about this. But I don’t want you to feel uncomfortable on account of me or anyone else for the motivation of me offering you this loan.
Sally: I’m sorry. It’s just, enough people assume that adam only hired me for personal reasons that I can’t help worrying that it might happen again.
Nick: Look, I’m not gonna deny that our relationship means a lot to me. But it’s got nothing to do with this offer. I saw early on when we were working together, before we got involved, that you’re a very talented woman. And chloe’s obviously a very driven person, and I think the two of you make an incredible team. So, if you do, in fact, want to start your own fashion label, there’s just no chance it doesn’t become a powerhouse. So, why wouldn’t I want to help you achieve that?
Sally: There’s just one problem. I don’t want to start another fashion line.

Sally: Running newman media gave me a taste of something bigger. You know, I realized I’m capable of so much more than just designing dresses. I mean, of course I still love the fashion world and can undeniably out-design the best of them. But I don’t know. I just feel like going back to where chloe and I were before is taking a step backward.
Nick: There’s nothing wrong with taking a step backward, sally. Sometimes you got to do that to propel yourself forward.
Sally: I know. And I’m not saying that I have to start at the top. I just… I don’t know. I might want to try something new.
Nick: Like what?
Sally: Well, I thought about maybe putting my fashion sense into interior design or an event-planning business. I don’t know yet.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Well, I think you’d be successful in either one of those arenas. Take interior design, for example. You could combine your amazing artistic sense along with your keen eye for what looks good. There’s just no way it fails. That goes for anything you put your mind to. And here’s the thing, sally — you don’t have to have all the answers right now. You take it one step at a time. And I hope you know, if you want, I’ll be right there by your side to help you figure it all out.
Phyllis: I would like to propose a toast.
Tucker: To what?
Phyllis: You. And, uh, the interesting tidbit you gave to ashley about diane and her activity in los angeles with jeremy stark.
Tucker: I hope you can put it to good use.
Phyllis: Absolutely. No stone unturned.
Tucker: Glad to hear it.
Phyllis: I’m not done. I have another stone.
Tucker: What stone’s that?
Phyllis: You. Why are you here, tucker? What are you doing back in this town? What do you plan to get out of all of this?
Ashley: You cheated on chance? Oh, honey. I’m assuming this is just a one-time, meaningless mistake, right? And you’re never gonna see this person again?
Abby: [ Sniffles ] This person is gonna be a part of our lives forever. Or, at least, dominic’s life.
Ashley: You slept with devon?
Abby: [ Sighs ] We were both feeling so alone and isolated. Amanda was in virginia for who knows how long, and chance — he’s just always working. I-I don’t know. It just happened.
Ashley: I know, honey. Sometimes things just happen. Sometimes they just happen.
Chelsea: As your mom, i always want to be honest with you. And I want this sadness to stop. I really do. But it’s an illness. It’s not like a physical one, like a — like a cold or an infection, but a mental one. So I need help from my doctors to learn how to manage it and how to make it go away. But unfortunately, these things take time.
Connor: But if it isn’t physical, how bad did it have to be for you to know you had to go to the hospital?
Chelsea: [ Sighs ] Um… it was very bad. It hurt very intensely on the inside. Even if people couldn’t see it on the outside, the — the pain was unbearable. And I — I just wanted it to stop.
Connor: Was it so bad you wanted to die? Vicks vapostick.
“The young and the restless”
Connor: Hey, you guys, I’m not a kid anymore. I know what it means to un-alive yourself.
Adam: Un-alive yourself? Where did you hear that?
Connor: [ Sighs ] It’s what they call it online. When someone doesn’t want to live anymore, they un-alive themselves. You can’t use other words for it without getting into trouble on some sites.
Chelsea: Okay, well, I-I-I do not love that you’re seeing those kinds of things online. But, um — ugh. But…yes. There was a moment when my head told me the pain would go away if I wasn’t here anymore. Not because there aren’t wonderful things in my life — because there are. It’s just the pain was so heavy, I couldn’t feel those wonderful things through all the sadness. It was a scary, terrible time for me. I was feeling desperate and alone with nowhere to turn. But the point is, I don’t feel that way anymore. And I promise I am going to work so hard so I never feel that way again.
Connor: I’ll help you, mom.
Chelsea: [ Exhales sharply ]
Sally: I hope you know that your belief in me means everything. Which is why I am going to turn down your generous offer.
Nick: [ Chuckles ] Are you sure? I know you told chloe you were gonna consider it.
Sally: As I said before, I do not want anyone thinking, including myself, that if my business succeeds —
Nick: When your business succeeds.
Sally: [ Sighs ] Okay.
When my business succeeds, it’s only because nick newman bankrolled me. Or because you fought for me to keep my job at newman media. Or even because adam newman made his girlfriend ceo. I want it to be because I did it myself. Because chloe and I are just that good. Does that make sense?
Nick: Yeah. And as much as I want to be by your side to help you, I cannot wait to see you triumphantly rise to the top.
Sally: Well, maybe you can be by my side…in a different way. If that’s what you want.
Nick: Yeah. Um… every time I’m with you, it never fails to make me want to spend more time with you.
Sally: Well…then I guess the question becomes… what are we, really? You know, are we just friends? Or is this going somewhere?
Nick: I sure hope so.
Jack: I appreciate you telling me the truth. It gives the family, the company time to prepare for whatever tucker has up his sleeve.
Diane: Well, good. I’m — I’m hoping you can outsmart him.
Jack: How much have you told kyle about this situation?
Diane: Well, I told him about jeremy’s release and my fears on that end. And thankfully, he vowed to protect me. But that’s exactly why I didn’t tell him about tucker’s demands for jabot’s financials or my plan to try to trap him. I was scared that kyle, being the protective son that he is, would — would try to confront tucker immediately.
Jack: Yeah, you’re probably right about that.
Diane: Yeah, and I refuse to expose him to that level of threat.
Jack: Last thing I want to do is put my son in a dangerous situation. Look, I have to ask. Did you have a hand in putting this man behind bars?
Diane: Yes. I made a deal — immunity for turning him in anonymously.
Jack: I suppose you did the right thing.
Diane: [ Sighs ]
Jack: I mean, he couldn’t commit any more crimes. He… you extricated yourself from the situation.
Diane: Jack, I have told you, and I have told kyle. Nobody else can know. And your sister is not helping things by doing everything she can to put stark on me.
Jack: I’ve talked to ashley. I’ve told her to back off.
Diane: Well, obviously, she didn’t listen. Ho. Ho. Ho.
Sally: [ Exhales heavily ] This feels right.
Nick: I know we said we were just gonna come in for a drink. But how would you feel about going out and celebrating?
Sally: Depends on what we are celebrating.
Nick: So much.
Sally: [ Chuckles ]
Nick: This new chapter for us, your new possible business venture.
Sally: Whatever it is.
Nick: It’s still worth celebrating. I’m gonna go shower, which is also an invitation for you to come into the shower.
Sally: [ Chuckles ]
Tucker: I’ll tell you exactly what I’ve told everyone else who’s asked. My sole focus is ashley. Um…I’ve made a lot of big mistakes in my life, and — and breaking her heart was possibly the biggest. And there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t wish I could take that back.
Phyllis: Hmm. Done some soul searching, have you?
Tucker: Yes, actually. Some deep soul searching. I admit that I asked diane to update me on ashley, but the reason is I missed her and, uh, I wanted to know if maybe she’d found someone else. Then I noticed how easily diane had slipped back in with the abbotts, so I figured maybe i could do it, too.
Ashley: Honey, I know that you and chance love each other. You love each other so much. I think if he could forgive you, you — you could get past this.
Abby: I don’t know. I don’t know if this is something that he can just get past…
Ashley: Well —
Abby: …Enough to save our marriage.
Ashley: Step by step, okay? The first thing you’re gonna have to do is change your relationship with devon, honey. You’re gonna have to. I mean, just because he’s dominic’s biological father doesn’t mean the two of you have to be this close. I’m assuming that’s what got you in this situation, right?
Abby: So now I have to lose devon, as well?
Ashley: [ Sighs ] Well, what do you think? I mean, if chance does decide to forgive you and you do want to save your marriage, then he has every right to not want you and devon to be so close, honey, don’t you think?
Abby: Yeah. Yeah. I guess you’re right.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door slams ]
Jack: Good to see you, abby.
Abby: Hi, uncle jack.
Jack: Ashley, could I speak to you alone for a moment?
Ashley: I’m in the middle of something with my daughter.
Abby: No, mom, it’s fine. I actually I have to get home to dominic.
Ashley: Are you sure?
Abby: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I love you.
Ashley: Honey, I love you so much. It’s gonna be okay.
Abby: Thank you for the talk. Bye, uncle jack.
Ashley: I’ll call you, honey.
[ Door opens ]
Ashley: Oh, what? Are you here riding to diane’s rescue once again?
Jack: I thought I made it clear you were to leave diane alone.
Ashley: And just because you said it doesn’t mean I’m going to do it.
Adam: Connor, your mom and I — we didn’t share this with you to scare you. We shared it with you because honesty is important.
Chelsea: And, you know, I — I regret keeping the fact that i was johnny’s biological mom a secret for so long. Moving forward, I’m not gonna keep anything from you. And we can talk about all of this today, tomorrow as long as you want. No shame, no secrets. We can talk about anything.
Adam: Yeah. And no matter what, we are a family. And we’re gonna get through this together. And for whatever reason, if you don’t want to talk to us about it, you can talk to sharon, you can talk to one of your teachers at school. But for no reason do you need to feel ashamed or embarrassed for your mother because she certainly isn’T.
Chelsea: That’s right. And in order to get through this, I have to face it head on. I have an illness and I am getting treatment and I am getting better. When you really need to sleep.
Nick: Thought you were coming in the shower. What’s got you so caught up?
Sally: I had an idea. It just came to me — a new business model. Look.
Nick: This is great. I mean, this is it. This is your gift. It’s your vision.
Sally: You really like it?
Nick: I do. Even if I can’t help you bring it to life, I cannot wait to see you and chloe run with this.
Sally: This is where I want to be.
Connor: Is it okay with you, dad, if I spend the night here with mom? I want to stay close so she knows she’s not alone and never has to be.
Adam: [ Chuckles ] Yes, of course you can. I’ll grab a few of your things from the ranch and I will drop them back off here.
[ Door opens ]
[ Door closes ]
Connor: I don’t know what I’d do if something really bad ever happened to you.
Chelsea: Ohh. You don’t have to worry about that because that is never gonna happen. And I’m so happy you want to stay here. I’m so excited to spend time with you. But making me feel less alone is not your job. It’s my job to take care of you. And you know what?
Chelsea: It’s the best job in the whole world.
Connor: [ Laughs ]
Chelsea: And I promise I am gonna work with my doctors and I am gonna get better. Because the two of us — we have a lifetime of things to do together.
Connor: [ Chuckles ]
[ Sighs ]
Tucker: Ah, finally. Thanks for the hospitality.
Phyllis: You are welcome.
Diane: Well, look at the two of you with your heads together.
Tucker: I was just leaving.
Diane: Oh, not on my account, I hope. As far as I’m concerned, you can collude all you want, but I’ve got to say — you’re not going to win.
Phyllis: You’re very confident, diane.
Diane: Yes, well, jack and kyle are in my corner, so no matter who or what you throw at me, they’ve got my back. So you and you and nikki and ashley are no match for us. So you better be prepared to come with everything you’ve got because this has officially turned into a war.
Jack: I cannot believe your audacity. I told you this is about one thing — protecting my son and preserving a relationship that means the world to kyle.
Ashley: Means the world to kyle or means the world to you?
Jack: Oh, come on.
Ashley: No. You know who diane is, and you know what she’s capable of. And yet, time and time again, we find out more things that she’s done. She runs to you. She says she’s the victim. She worms her way right back into your good graces, and you go out of your way to protect her again.
Jack: That’s a bit of an exaggeration, don’t you think?
Ashley: No, I don’t think that. I believe it’s an accurate observation, jack, because I’m watching you and you’re constantly going to battle for her. And I know you’re not taking into consideration the depth of her illegal activities.
Jack: You’ve got a lot of nerve, considering how tucker is using you right now, coercing you into doing his bidding. Did you know that he asked diane to pass along jabot financial information? Yeah, and he turned on her when she didn’t comply. That’s what this is about, Ashley. I guess your considerable charms didn’t extricate that particular secret from Tucker. He is looking for weaknesses in Jabot right now so that he can exploit them…the same way he is exploiting your hatred toward Diane. Whatever Tucker McCall is really after, it appears that you are his unwitting accomplice.
Next Week on “The Young and The Restless” —
Jack: While we are waiting for the first course, I thought we might go around the table and each say what we are most thankful for today.
Lily: Oh, my God!
Daniel: Look at you.
Lily: Wow, it’s so good to see you. What are you doing here?
Adam: I want to be with you. We belong together. Marry me, Sally.
