Adam: What were you up to?

Victor: What do you mean, what was I up to?

Adam: You and kyle, when you were talking here earlier. What sort of collusion was going on?

Victor: Kyle is a nice guy. We had an interesting conversation.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Come on. You can’t really expect me to buy that. The guy’s a bore. What were you talking about?

Victor: Family issues, son. I know you don’t give a damn about family issues, but I do. And I asked him how you were faring at jabot.

Adam: [ Scoffs ] I’m sure you don’t care how I’m doing in my new position. And you must know that kyle’s opinion would be skewed. He hates the fact that I’m there. So there’s no objective value in asking how I’m doing, which leads me to my original question — what are you up to?

Kyle: Harrison finally go down?

Summer: [ Sighs ] Yeah. It took four readings of “bumpy the camel,” but he’s finally sleeping peacefully. You know, I still feel kind of nervous about sticking around here and not going to paris.

Kyle: Hey. You’re safe, summer, both of you. I wouldn’t have encouraged you to stay if I thought you were in danger. You trust me, right?

Summer: Yeah. With my life.

Kyle: Good. Now, you know who I don’t trust?

Summer: Stark?

Kyle: That’s right, but also your grandfather.

Summer: Uh-oh. What did he do now?

Kyle: He wants my help in ousting adam from jabot.

Summer: Really?

Kyle: Mm-hmm. We just discussed it.

Summer: What does he want you to do?

Kyle: We didn’t get into specifics, but he would like it if adam had an epic failure that resulted in him being fired.

Summer: [ Scoffs ] I know that grandpa and adam have always had their issues, but I just can’t believe he would be so hurtful to his own son.

Kyle: I don’t think he was trying to hurt him this time. I got the feeling he just wants him out of the job so he can push him back into the newman fold.

Summer: Coercing adam to return by eliminating his other options? I just… I don’t think a family can be brought together through deceit and manipulation.

Diane: Mm. As fun as this has been — and it’s been a lot of fun — I need to get to chicago.

Jeremy: [ Chuckles ] Love it.

Diane: What?

Jeremy: The audacity. Stealing a piece of jewelry from nikki newman?

Diane: Shh. We don’t want the whole world to know. And it’s not just any piece of jewelry. Victor spent a fortune on it.

Jeremy: Oh. I love that, too.

Diane: And when I bring it back, you’ll know that I’m serious about getting back in the game with you.

Jeremy: You know, I’m so impressed by this plan of yours. Why wait?

Diane: Wait for what?

Jeremy: For you to get back from chicago. Why don’t I come with you? We could pull this heist off together — a taste of things to come.

Abby: Still thinking about it?

Devon: Yeah. It’s kind of hard not to. It’s not every day you find out that your father is trying to steal your company, you know?

Abby: Yeah. You know, I wouldn’t know the feeling because my dad would never try to do that to me or to any one of my siblings.

[ Both chuckle ]

Devon: Mm.

Abby: I’m kidding.

Devon: Mm.

Abby: I’m just trying to cheer you up because you’re so good at doing that for everyone else. What are you feeling?

Devon: I am… I’m feeling like you just being here is cheering me up. I’m also feeling like my life was going really well, like i was on a great trajectory and everything was moving forward. I was working with my sister and we had realized the dream of combining our companies and then everything just fell apart.

Abby: It’s just a setback.

Devon: Mnh, no, it’s not. It’s — it’s more than that. ‘Cause I told jill that I want to buy back hamilton-winters because if it goes public, it’s gonna end up in the hands of strangers — or, worse, people like tucker — and I don’t want that at all. I want to have control of it, and I want to run my company the way that neil taught me how to run it.

Abby: That’s a big decision.

Devon: I know it is. And I know it’s the right one, too, ’cause I can feel it. I’ve made way too many mistakes lately not trusting how I feel, between nate and everything that went down with him, trusting tucker when he showed up to town. It’s definitely time for me to trust my own instincts.

Lily: I’m really sorry.

Daniel: Thank you.

Lily: Thanks.

Daniel: For what?

Lily: Well, I said I didn’t feel like talking, and then i talked your ear off.

Daniel: Oh. Well, you know, it’s understandable. I mean, you got a lot on your mind. You and devon, you and billy, you and — I don’t know — somebody else.

Lily: [ Laughs ]

Daniel: I got to be honest with you — I kind of stopped listening after a while.

Lily: Oh, good. I’m glad I have someone to talk to who listens.

Daniel: [ Sniffs ] I feel the same way. Yeah. You know, I’ve done my fair share of sharing with you. The good, the bad, and the painfully unattractive. For better or worse, you get me.

Lily: I do get you. I wish I didn’t, but I do. Ever leave your clothes in the dryer

Billy: I’m gonna go order.

Chelsea: Hey, daniel.

Daniel: How’s it going, chelsea? It’s been a minute, huh?

Chelsea: It has. Hi, lily.

Lily: Hi.

Chelsea: I heard you were back in town. It’s great to see you. How have you been?

Daniel: Good. I’ve been good. Um, I’m happy to be back in genoa city in january, you know? I love these subzero temperatures.

Chelsea: Yeah. Are you just visiting or…?

Daniel: Actually, there’s something that’s gonna be keeping me around town for a bit. I’m working on a project with chancellor-winters.

Chelsea: Oh. Well, that’s wonderful. I’m glad to hear it.

Lily: Yeah, we’re very happy to have him.

Chelsea: I bet kevin will be excited you’re back in town.

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah. You know, we’ve talked, but i haven’t gotten to see him as much as I’d like to.

Billy: Well, you’re really busy working on that gaming platform, right? So not a lot of time to do anything else.

Summer: I can’t believe my grandpa would put you in this position. What did you tell him?

Kyle: I didn’t agree to help him push adam out. But I didn’t exactly say no, either.

Summer: Wait, so you’re actually giving this some consideration?

Kyle: Well, I don’t want to get in the middle of a newman family squabble, but adam has a track record of betraying anyone who’s close to him. He could wreak havoc on everything my dad and grandfather built.

Summer: But jack can keep him in line.

Kyle: [ Sighs ] I know my dad has a soft spot for adam and there were 10 million reasons not to give him the job, but he gave it to him anyway. I do not trust my dad’s thinking on this.

Summer: Why does jack have such affection for somebody who’s so ruthless and cold-blooded, anyway?

Kyle: I don’t know. I will never understand my dad’s allegiance to adam.

Victor: I’ve got to tell you very honestly that it hurts me a great deal to realize that you’re going to such great lengths to cut your ties to your family.

Adam: Yes, I’m sure it’s very frustrating for you that I don’t just mindlessly fall in line like my siblings.

Victor: That’s putting it mildly.

Adam: Well, I’m sure that you’ll get over it. You usually do.

Victor: Listen to me. I hope that one day you won’t have the same situation with your son, connor, when he grows up and tells you he wants nothing to do with you, he ices you out of his life. How would you feel about that?

Adam: [ Clears throat ] I think that sounds like a very far-fetched hypothetical.

Victor: No, son, no. That is how you’re treating me, son.

Adam: No, my relationship with connor is much different than what you and I have.

Victor: This is what I —

Adam: I would never do what you’ve done to me.

Victor: This is what I said about my own father. He was a bastard who left his family destitute…so that I had to grow up in a damn orphanage. And I swore I would not treat my children that way.

Adam: I’m sure we come from a long line of men who wish that they were better fathers than their own.

Victor: I’m not getting through to you, am I, son? I seriously doubt our ancestors gave a damn about the subtleties of parenting.

Adam: And, what, you do?

Victor: I do, and I have. And I’ve come to the conclusion that all we do is the best we can. Now, is that what you want to do — have a conversation from father to father?

Adam: I understand that you’ve had to overcome a lot to become the man you are, and i appreciate that.

Victor: But?

Adam: But you’re a ruthless businessman who claims to put family first.

Victor: I always have, and i do now.

Adam: Your actions repeatedly say otherwise. No, what you do is you use the image of a family man to justify some pretty abhorrent behavior. So, from my point of view, you’re a hypocrite at best. Now, is that the kind of father-to-father talk you were hoping for?

Victor: No. But it’s not unexpected. I just really wish that you would realize that all I’ve done in the past in regard to you is tried to protect you, educate you, give you the tools to deal with the slings and arrows that life will throw at you.

Adam: You know, what I found, dad, is what life usually throws at me…is you.

Victor: You’re crossing a certain line. However, I hope that your son will not one day tell you that family means nothing to him, that your love means nothing to him, that he can go to hell. How would you feel about that?

Adam: I just think it’s pretty low that you would use my son — a child — to try to pull me back into your orbit, dad. You know, there are moments in life when you just do what you have to.

Adam: Right. Because it’s always about you and what you want, right?

Victor: You’re damn right it’s about me, as your life is all about you. And I’ve done pretty damn well, okay? I’ve raised an enormous empire and a great family. And you, my son, were raised on a farm in kansas not because of my choice — because your mother wanted it that way, not I! I wanted to raise you here. You have never forgiven me for that. What will it take for you to finally come to your senses? I hope that you will never have to experience what I’m experiencing right now with your own son.

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Diane: You don’t need to come to chicago with me. It’s a one-person job.

Jeremy: It doesn’t have to be.

Diane: Yes, but I have it all planned out, down to the last detail. There’s not a lot of room for improvising.

Jeremy: Maybe if I just tagged along.

Diane: [ Chuckling ] Jeremy, you can’t throw last-minute variables into a carefully laid-out plan. It’s too risky. You taught me that.

Jeremy: You need more flexibility.

Diane: You know, I — I don’t get this. I don’t get this. If you’re willing to put the whole thing in jeopardy, it kind of makes me wonder what you’re really after.

Jeremy: It sounds like you don’t trust me.

Diane: Well, trust is a two-way street, isn’t it? I don’t need you looking over my shoulder. You asked me to do something to prove that I’m serious, so let me do it.

Jeremy: But if I knew a little bit more about your operation, maybe I could help.

Diane: No, no, no. This one’s all mine. And nikki newman will be screaming her head off, demanding that the person who stole her precious jewelry be brought to justice. That in itself makes it worth the risk. But I will also have the pleasure of presenting you with an exquisite piece, a tribute and guarantee of my loyalty.

Jeremy: Okay. Okay. The robbery is yours.

Diane: Good.

Jeremy: But [Sighs] Why don’t we go back to my room for a little nightcap before you take off?

Diane: [ Chuckles ] I am on a strict timetable, but I promise I will let you know the second I get back.

Devon: Lily lashed out at me for backing out of the ipo. She doesn’t trust my instincts that it’s gonna hurt the company and katherine and neil’s legacy. She said that I betrayed her, compared me to victor.

Abby: [ Sighs ] She’s just upset. You were both so excited about the merger. You were looking forward to it.

Devon: I know. We were. At first. Until I realized that the business was being pulled in a direction that didn’t make me feel comfortable, and then it made me rethink everything.

Abby: Look, I think you’re right. I think you should trust your intuition. But also remember you both went into this deal with the best of intentions. And lily is your sister. You guys have a bond that can’t be broken. This is nothing like the situation with tucker.

[ Cellphone pings ]

Devon: Well, speak of the devil. He wants to meet with me.

Abby: Okay. Are you going to?

Devon: No, I’m not going to. I don’t have anything to say to him.

Abby: Look, I get it. Tucker’s proven that he can’t be trusted. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t meet with him.

Devon: I — that’s the last thing I would expect you to say. Why do you think I should?

Abby: Because he’s obnoxiously determined and he won’t give up.

Devon: That’s true.

Abby: I think that you should just meet with him face-to-face. He’s not gonna give up until you do. And tell him that you want nothing to do with him.

Tucker: [ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone pings ]

Chelsea: It must be really exciting making the transition from artist to video game designer. Thank you.

Daniel: It is. Yeah. No, no, no, it is. Um, it’s a little daunting, too.

Chelsea: Well, I think it’s very inspiring. It must be cool making a big change like that.

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah. No, thank you. Um…kevin mentioned that you and chloe ended your partnership?

Chelsea: We did. We did. It had kind of, um, run its course, but she’s still my best friend.

Daniel: Well, that’s good. Yeah. So, what are you up to now?

Chelsea: Uh, I’m just trying to figure out some possibilities, you know, figure out what’s next. But, really, I’m just focused on connor.

Daniel: Oh. How’s he doing?

Chelsea: He’s great. He’s great. How’s lucy?

Daniel: She’s, um — well, she’s good. She’s good. She’s currently on this big, grand adventure with her mother.

Chelsea: Cool. Billy, thank you for the tea. Lily, always a pleasure. Uh, and, daniel, good luck with the project.

Daniel: Thank you. It’s nice seeing you, too.

Chelsea: Good night.

Billy: I’m gonna take off. Enjoy the rest of your night.

Daniel: Wow, that was very pleasant.

Summer: So, all things being equal, you would help my grandpa get adam fired.

Kyle: Look, if victor has a way to send adam packing, i think I should listen.

Summer: Getting involved with my grandpa is a slippery slope, kyle.

Kyle: I know. Mom. What’s going on?

[ Door slams ]

Diane: Oh, good. You’re still here. Have you heard from jack?

Kyle: No. Are you okay?

Diane: Oh, oh, yeah. I-I’m fine. I was with jeremy, who almost threw a wrench in our plan, but I-I handled it.

Summer: Is it even wise for you to be here right now? I saw you looking over your shoulder when you came in like somebody might be following you. Harrison and I were about to get on a plane, but we didn’t because I was told that no one is in danger.

Kyle: It’s okay, summer.

Summer: No! It’s not. This criminal from her past is a real threat. I’m thinking about our son here.

Diane: I share your concerns, but I was very careful, and I am confident that no one followed me.

Summer: But you’re not 100% certain.

Diane: Summer, I get it. You don’t trust me yet. But I am determined to prove to you that I am sincere about the changes I’ve made in my life. And if all goes according to plan, I’ll be able to put this last painful piece of my past behind me.

Tucker: Hi. Thank you for seeing me.

Devon: Sure. Come in.

Tucker: [ Clears throat ]

[ Door closes ] Hello, abby. Always a pleasure.

Abby: You can save your charm for devon. I’m gonna go to the restaurant. Call me later.

Devon: Yeah.

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

Tucker: [ Sighs ] Um… I know you’re angry.

Devon: That’s good.

Tucker: Yeah. And probably hurt. And I don’t blame you. So I’m gonna be perfectly honest with you.

Devon: Are you even capable of doing that?

Tucker: I just want a chance to explain to you, um, wh–

Devon: I mean, audra was overseeing our whole ipo move, and it turns out she’s been working for you this whole time. So, what’s left to explain?

Tucker: I know it doesn’t look good. I just want to tell you why i did what I did and what I really wanted. One prilosec otc each morning blocks

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Tucker: When you first found out that I was your biological father, you wanted nothing to do with me.

Devon: I remember.

Tucker: Yeah, ’cause that revelation caused a lot of chaos and upheaval in your life, right?

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: Um, so I tried to be patient and not push any agenda, um, and demonstrate that

[Clears throat] I wanted to be a part of your life as much as you would let me.

Devon: Right. What’s your point, tucker?

Tucker: Well, uh, just… I wanted to be a, um, positive presence in your life, you know? I wanted to show up for you however I could. For instance, I encouraged you to get the surgery for your hearing loss, right? And so slowly — very slowly — um, what started out as a unwanted disruption in your life started to turn into something else, and a little relationship started to form. And, um, I think one of the most positive steps forward was when we produced the song together, right? I just loved that collaboration with you. And I’m pretty sure you felt the same way. Um, anyway… and now I just… I want to have that kind of collaboration with you again. I want to be a part of your daily life, even if it’s not in the recording studio, but in the executive suite. That’s my dream. And ashley was a part of it, too. Mad dream — pull together some massive family conglomerate with ashley, uh — hopefully my wife again — running jabot and you running chancellor-winters. Ridiculous, right? So, that’s my point. I… I just want to work side by side with the two people who mean more to me than anything else in the world.

Kyle: Hey. How’d it go?

Diane: What happened? Were you able to pull it off?

Jack: Well, there were a few tense moments, but it went smoothly, I think. Anyway, here it is.

Diane: Oh!

Kyle: Wow.

Diane: [ Gasps ] Gosh, that’s beautiful.

Summer: Wait a second. I recognize that necklace. That’s — that’s my grandma’S. My grandpa gave it to her a few years ago. I mean, that’s worth a fortune. Wait, wh– what’s going on? Why do you have it?

Jack: Summer, there is a simple explanation — well, not simple. It’s easy to understand. It’s —

Kyle: Stark wanted proof that mom was on his side, so he asked her to commit a crime to be sure she was willing to go to extremes for him.

Jack: He needs to know that she is criminally liable for something. That way, he’s not the only one in trouble if the two of them reunite and start working together again.

Kyle: And this is how we sell it. We present stark with nikki’s stolen necklace.

Summer: Okay, but how did you get it? I know that my grandma wouldn’t have loaned it to you to help diane. I mean, don’t tell me that you actually — you stole it?

Billy: Scotch, neat, please.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Billy.

Billy: Adam, not tonight.

[ Scotch pouring ] Thank you.

[ Sighs ] I’m serious, okay? I’m not gonna do this. I’m not gonna do this dance tonight where I take a shot at you, you take a shot at me, and neither one of us feels any better about it.

Adam: Listen, I feel the same way. You are the last person that i want to interact with tonight, and I know this because the second-to-last person just left here.

Billy: Oh, yeah. I see daddy’s drink sitting right there. Sorry I missed him.

Adam: Yeah, I’m sure you are. Um, so, I don’t really want to engage with you, but I feel like I have to.

Billy: [ Sighs ] What are you getting at?

Adam: You’ve more or less insinuated yourself into my life, and I am tired of it.

Billy: Are you drunk? You’re not making any sense, adam.

Adam: Chelsea, the mother of my son, okay? I know you were instrumental in helping her through the crisis — and good for you — but now you’re just taking advantage of her.

Billy: I’m warning you. Back off, adam.

Adam: You find it enjoyable that chelsea is vulnerable. I mean, you just get off on being her savior. It’s the one thing that you can cling onto in your life. You know, “everything is a wreck, but maybe I will boost my self-confidence by taking care of this poor woman.” Right, billy? Right? I mean, it’s the truth. It’s obvious. And I know that lily absolutely sees it, too.

Billy: Adam, are you not hearing me? I said back off!

[ Both breathing heavily ] Who says you can’t go for bold

Adam: I’m telling you the truth.

Billy: No, you’re blaming me because she’s not leaning on you anymore and it’s killing you. I mean, you are the main reason chelsea ended up in the situation that she did. You have caused her so much pain, adam.

Adam: No, she never said that.

Billy: No, I am saying that. Do you hear me? I am saying that. I mean, you’re pissed off because I’m supporting her? Are you that self-conscious? Are you that self-obsessed? What is wrong with you?

Adam: She doesn’t need you…

Abby: Hey, hey, hey!

Adam: …In her life, billy!

Abby: Stop. Stop. You know what I need? I need for the two of you to knock it off. You’re frightening my customers. And if you want to attack each other, go outside and do it in the cold. And tip your bartender on the way out.

Adam: I’m sorry, abby. I’ll be on my way.

[ Clears throat ]

Abby: [ Scoffs ]

[ Glass thuds ]

[ Chair legs scrape ] Are you okay?

Billy: [ Sniffs ]

Abby: Billy, what’s going on with you?

Jack: Summer, we are merely borrowing the necklace.

Summer: Where did you get it?

Jack: From victor and nikki’s apartment in chicago.

Summer: And you just walked right in and took it?

Jack: Yeah, more or less. I-I knew how to get in and i knew the code to the safe from my time there with nikki and — the important thing is, this will be returned to her before she even knows it’s missing.

Summer: How am I just finding out about this? Did you keep me in the dark on purpose?

Kyle: Yes. I didn’t want you to stress about it.

Summer: About grand larceny? Kyle, that’s something that i should stress out about.

Kyle: Summer, the necklace will be returned, no harm, no foul.

Summer: And what if you can’t return it? What if you get caught?

Jack: This will work, summer. This is all part of a plan to get rid of stark.

Summer: You know what, kyle? This affects more than just you and your mom. If this blows up, it affects everyone. I don’t want any part of this scheme, and, kyle I don’t want you getting any more involved.

Kyle: Summer, I —

[ Sighs ] I’ll fix this.

Jack: [ Exhales heavily ]

Diane: [ Sighs ] This is exactly what I didn’t want — to bring more turmoil to this family.

Daniel: It was just so tense between you and billy. I mean, I know you said that you guys were trying to keep things friendly, but that — that was painful. I mean, I looked over at chelsea at one point and I could see it in her eyes. She was like, “I got to get out of here. I can’t handle this awkwardness.”

Lily: Yeah, well, they’ve gotten really close, so I’m sure he probably told her everything already.

Daniel: Hey. Are you okay?

Lily: No. Um… I’m just really tired. I feel like I want to sleep for a week. But I will settle for six and a half hours. Um, I should go. Thank you for listening to me.

Daniel: Yeah. Hey, any time. You know that, right? Any time.

Lily: Yeah. Yeah, I do.

Daniel: Nothing better than having someone you can vent to whenever you want.

Lily: Yeah. Agreed. Um, have a good night.

Daniel: Good night.

[ Knock on door ]

Chelsea: Coming! What’s wrong? If you think all pads are exactly the same…

Devon: Tucker, I think that having the goal of working with the people that you love and building something together is really nice. That’s actually what I set out to do with chancellor-winters.

Tucker: Yeah.

Devon: But you have to understand that you’re never gonna get anything close to that if you keep going about things the way that you go about them. Because you deceive and you literally lie to the people that you say you care about just to get what you want. And it’s never gonna work for you.

Tucker: But in my heart, what’s m–

Devon: Who cares? What does it matter what’s in your heart when you use every dirty trick in the book? Or when you tell people you changed when you clearly haven’t changed? You said that car accident in monte carlo changed who you are? It didn’T. You’re the same guy. You said you wanted to get closer to me. You’ve done the complete opposite. You’ve alienated me, and I don’t want to have nothing to do with you. And I imagine ashley probably feels the exact same way. So, do you understand how you set out to get everything and you’ve wound up with nothing?

Tucker: Yeah.

Devon: You see that?

Tucker: Yeah. I need to make some changes.

Devon: I — I would say so. But what you really need to do is get out of my house.

Tucker: Isn’t there a way we can fix it?

Devon: I just told you how you can fix it.

Tucker: What can I do to fix it?

Devon: Tucker, listen to me. Look at me. I’m telling you how to fix it. Leave town. You never should have showed up in the first place.

Adam: I’m not here to talk about myself. I’m here to check on you.

Chelsea: Okay. Um…

[ Door closes ] Well, you don’t have to do that. Or pretend like you’re checking to see how I’m doing when really something else is on your mind. Adam, if something’s bothering you, you can just say it.

Adam: [ Chuckles ]

Chelsea: Okay, it’s been a really long day and I was about to go to bed. So, if you want to talk, maybe you can stop by tomorrow, but for now — look at me. I’m fine. Really. I’m just tired.

Adam: You were watching a movie?

Chelsea: Yeah, I was. Adam, it’s late. I think you should go. Please.

Adam: Okay. Okay. We’ll talk tomorrow.

Jack: Look, uh, kyle can smooth things over with summer. We have to stick with our plan.

Diane: Yeah.

Jack: I just pulled off a major heist. I think we’re committed now.

Diane: Yeah, I can’t tell you how grateful I am. You’ve gone to such lengths to protect me. Thank you.

Jack: Look, hold your gratitude for right now. I think it’s only gonna get trickier from here on.

Diane: Well, I am confident we can pull this off. I just — I just know I’m not gonna be able to sleep tonight. I just want this whole thing to be over.

Jack: Okay, don’t let your nerves get the best of you. You have a role to play here. You have to be utterly convincing, or stark won’t believe you. I am with you every step of the way.

Diane: And I’m with you. Your words are so reassuring. When you talk to me, I believe you completely.

Jack: Good. I believe in you. It’s like there’s this whole new layer to you. There was always beauty, there was always strength, there was always wit, but now there’S… this level of courage that i never expected. And I find it very attractive.

Diane: [ Chuckles ]
