[ Summer crying ]

Summer: No, no. My mom is not dead. There’s been a mistake ’cause it’s not what they’re saying.

[ Sobbing ]

Chance: The gcpd and fire are on scene. I’ve gotten a full report. Phyllis is gone. The emt from the ambulance is here, and he gave an account of what happened. He said that the driver swerved to avoid a deer and lost control. There was an explosion in the fire. He was thrown from the vehicle, and the only survivor. I have confirmed all this with the officers on scene as well.

Daniel: So she’s really gone.

Danny: Oh, come here. I’m so sorry, my son. I’m so sorry.

Chance: You ok?

Sharon: It’s a lot.

Chance: Yeah, well, I — I’m sure this must be a reminder. I’m sorry. I — I know it’s not easy.

Sharon: The night ray died? Yeah, it is a little bit familiar, but, um, don’t worry about me. I can handle it. Right now, I’m just worried about phyllis’s family.

Diane: Despite all the differences between me and phyllis over the years, I was praying that she would survive.

[ Sighs ] For her children to lose their mother like this…

Jack: It’s all just awful.

Jeremy: Oh, stop pretending that you give a damn that phyllis is dead. This is exactly what you wanted to happen.

Victoria: I mean, just think of it — no grind, no meetings, no quarterlies to worry about. If you were to sell mccall unlimited to newman, you would have the freedom to do whatever you want. You could go wherever you want for the rest of your life.

Tucker: Isn’t freedom just a state of mind?

Victoria: There must be something that you want that the lack of time or money has prevented you from being able to do. Maybe you could take up race cars again.

Tucker: [ Chuckles ]

I’m kind of over that.

Victoria: Oh. Yachts.

Tucker: [ Chuckles ] Yachts? No, I’m a landlubber.

Victoria: Did you know that ashley is into estate jewelry? Emeralds, if I’m correct. You could woo her with a couple of rare pieces.

Tucker: I admire your drive. You are relentless in the best way.

Victoria: Yes, you’re right. I am relentless. I am. But I’m also impatient. Look, this has been a lot of fun, but I think we should just put our cards on the table. What is it that you really want? What can I offer you that you won’t turn down?

Abby: I thought you said you were tired.

Devon: Well, you inspired me to stay up.

Abby: Oh, really?

Devon: Yeah. Would you like a nightcap?

Abby: Sure.

Devon: Yeah?

Abby: Yeah.

Devon: What are you thinking about, pretty lady?

Abby: I am just asking myself if I could call this place home.

Jack: If you knew anything about phyllis, you would know that everyone in this room is devastated by her death, with a probable exception of you.

Jeremy: You don’t know how I feel.

Jack: How about showing some compassion for the people who do care about her and leaving?

Jeremy: I am — was her husband, and I have more right to be here than you or your fiance. And I’m not leaving here until I find out more information about what happened to my wife.

Kyle: Babe, let’s get out of here. We can peek in on harrison, give him a kiss goodnight.

Nick: I think that’s a great idea. If you need anything, I mean anything, I’m just a phone call away. I love you, supergirl.

Summer: I love you, too, dad.

[ Sighs ]

Kyle: [ Sighs ] Ok. I’m gonna take her home.

Jack: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. We’ll — we’ll see you back there, summer. We want to do anything we can to help.

Diane: Summer, I am — I am so sorry. You’ll be alright? Ok. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

Tucker: Mm. I suppose I must have my price, like everyone else. And you are one of the few people in the world who could pay it.

Victoria: That’s a start.

Tucker: But I got to ask you why. What about mccall unlimited is so attractive to you?

Victoria: Isn’t it obvious?

Tucker: Not to me it isn’T. The company’s invaluable to me for emotional reasons, but objectively, it’s a failing company weighed down by debt. It doesn’t seem like a wise investment decision, so I just don’t see what’s so appealing about it for you. Unless this whole endeavor has nothing to do with my company and everything to do with you.

Abby: I was pretty surprised when you asked me to move in. Thank you.

Devon: Well, I know that it would be a big step, and I know there’d be probably a lot of people with a lot of opinions about it.

Abby: Like chance. I know that he’s still really hurt by what happened between us. And us moving in together and raising dominic like a family, I’m sure that would be really hard for him. And I do still feel guilty about how it all happened.

Devon: Yeah. So do I. But at the same time, I mean, I know we’ve both done as much as we can to apologize to the people that we hurt, so maybe it’s ok that we don’t beat ourselves up about this anymore.

Abby: I wish it were that easy. But one thing chance was right about is that my feelings for you have always been more complicated than friendship.

Actually, I don’t think it’s complicated at all, because I know exactly how I feel about you. I love you.

Jeremy: So all of the new information only confirms the old information?

Chance: Yes, I have nothing more for you at the moment. I have been in touch with each team on scene. The details have been verified. There was only one survivor. Those are the facts. I’m sorry.

Jeremy: And I should just accept that? Huh? Coming from you, the person who wrongfully arrested me on some trumped-up burglary charges?

Chance: That order came down from chicago, and I had —

Jeremy: Yeah, yeah, which a smart man like you knew it was garbage. But you, you arrested me anyway, like a good little soldier. You know, you have virtually no credibility with me, detective. And, oh, yeah, I’m suspicious as hell about your investigation. These types protect their own, and you’re one of them.

Chance: We’re doing everything we can.

Jeremy: Well, you damn well better be! No, I think we should concentrate on what happened before the accident. My wife was assaulted, her life threatened, and she passed out in a room full of witnesses. But I guess we just forgot about all that, right?

Chance: What do you want from me, stark?

Jeremy: I want you and the gcpd to find me some answers. I’m gonna get some air.

Daniel: None of this adds up.

Chance: Daniel, listen to me. I know it feels that way.

Daniel: Don’t tell me this is the grief talking. Something is not right here, chance, I can feel it in my gut. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

Chance: How you doing?

You gonna tell me I can’t leave yet?

Chance: I understand, it’s been a long night. I just got a couple more questions for you.

Ok. I’ve already told you everything that I know.

Chance: You mentioned that you drew phyllis’s blood. Where’d you store it?

In a cold metal container, per standard medical protocol.

Chance: Could that container have survived the fire?

Yeah, it should have. The fire crew probably took it to the hospital, along with anything else that they salvaged from the site.

Sharon: I saw summer and kyle leave.

Nick: Yeah, she’s wrecked. She wanted to go home.

Sharon: Well, home is probably the best place for her.

Nick: Surprised you hung around.

Sharon: Yeah. I couldn’t bring myself to leave either. Nick, what if I’m responsible for what happened to phyllis?

Nick: Why would you say that?

Sharon: Because after she collapsed, lauren said that it could be a side effect from the coma phyllis was in years ago.

Nick: No, sharon. No. You can’t think like that. There’s no reason to believe she would develop complications from that accident. It was so long ago.

Sharon: Something caused phyllis to collapse tonight.

Nick: Or someone.

Sharon: Diane?

Nick: Her feud with phyllis picked right back up when she came back to genoa city.

Sharon: You think there’s some connection between that and what happened to phyllis?

Nick: It’s just a feeling. Did you know that stark stole a necklace from my parents’ safe in chicago? He was arrested.

Sharon: He is such a terrible person. I have a hard time believing that phyllis married him.

Nick: There’s a lot about this that doesn’t make sense. But I’m telling you right now, if it turns out phyllis’s death wasn’t an accident, I’m looking right at stark.

Victoria: Well, whether you’re really, truly curious about that or you just feel like you maybe want me to stroke your ego, I would be very happy to enlighten you.

Tucker: [ Laughs ] Please.

Victoria: Mccall is in debt, but it’s not devoid of value. Some of its divisions are successful. The entertainment division is alone a potential gold mine.

Tucker: Ok, but if it’s strictly profit you’re seeking, there are much better options out there.

Victoria: Well, that’s your opinion. I am… I’m confident that this venture could be hugely successful.

Tucker: Ok.

Victoria: What?

Tucker: Well, I just — I’m trying to figure out what your definition of success is in this particular instance.

Victoria: I really don’t understand what you’re implying.

Tucker: Well, victor wants the companies who can hand it off to the prodigal son, which doesn’t quite seem like a win for you. I mean, you put all the time and energy into making the deal, and he hands it off to the kid brother who you despise. Adam gets this high profile, high power position, courtesy of you and your hard work, and you get nothing. Why would you be on board with a plan like that?

Victoria: That’s not my plan. I have my own ideas of how to fold mccall into newman. Adam’s services will not be needed.

Tucker: Ah, fascinating.

Victoria: But?

Tucker: If it were just a battle between you and adam, my money’s on you every time. But, victor, he’s still the… alpha wolf of the newman clan. So how do you plan on defeating your father?

Diane: Hey.

Jack: Hey.

Diane: Maybe you should have gone home with kyle and summer. It’s good to be with family at a time like this.

Jack: Yeah, much as I might like to, I — I don’t want to go anywhere until I know everything that happened to phyllis. I can’t believe this has happened. She’s gone.

Diane: I know you loved her very much in the past, and that’s a lot of history that nothing can erase.

Jack: Thank you for saying that. You know what? My grief can wait. I’m concerned about you. Stark has made a very strong argument to chance that you and phyllis were an ongoing war, that you threatened her life in front of witnesses, that she had your engagement ring in her hand when she collapsed.

Diane: Yeah, but those things can be explained. I was angry when I made that threat, I — jack, I didn’t mean it. And — and the ring? I mean, jeremy pickpocketed you and gave it to phyllis. I don’t know why, but that’s clearly what happened.

Jack: It’s his word against yours.

Diane: [ Sighs ]

Jack: And the only person that knows the truth… is phyllis.

Diane: Jack.

Jack: Look, whatever he’s playing at, I’m sorry to say, his end game is punishing you. That’s why I have to stay here. I want to know every move that stark makes. I want to know every piece of information that chance gathers. If you want to be with summer and kyle, I understand that. You go ahead.

Diane: No, I — I don’t think summer wants to see me right now. Just how — how horribly sad is it that phyllis’s last conscious moments were spent attacking us, and summer witnessed it? The — the memory of tonight is going to haunt that poor girl for the rest of her life.

Ashley: Jack?

[ Door closes ] Where’s jack? Is he with you? What’s the matter? What happened?

Summer: [Crying] My mom is dead.

Abby: I wasn’t expecting the “l” word. [ Chuckles ]

Devon: You weren’t? What are you talking about? You already know that I love you. How could I not love you after everything that we are to each other? Everything that you’ve brought into my life. I have a son because of you, and that’s made my world bigger than I ever could have imagined for myself.

Abby: And I see dom as a gift that you gave me.

Devon: He’s a gift to both of us. And he brought us together. But that’s not the only reason that I love you.

Abby: Oh. I know what it is. It’s because I told the servers at society to give you an extra helping of those sweet potatoes that you likes so much. That’s it, right?

Devon: That’s up there, yeah. No. [ Laughs ] No. I love you because you always want what’s best for me, no matter what. And you’ve helped me every step of the way. When I went to war with lily and you reminded me always that family comes first. And then tonight, you surprised me with that incredible tribute to neil, and that just opened everything up for me and put things into perspective and made me finally hear what you’ve been saying to me all along.

Abby: I’m just happy that you and lily were able to move past the ugliness.

Devon: Yeah. Because of you.

Abby: You would have found your way.

Devon: But we did find our way because of you. You can take the credit. You’ve always, always been there for me, and you always listen to me. You never judge. You’ve been doing that for long before dominic got here. Do you remember when I said to you that I would move heaven and earth for you and our son? Well, I meant that, and I want to prove it to you every single day, here in our home, the three of us.

Danny: Hey, jack.

Jack: Hey.

Danny: Any idea what chance is working on? I mean, daniel insists on sticking around, but, you know —

Jack: I am afraid we’re in the dark as much as you are.

Danny: Yeah, I understand why he has all these questions about what’s happening. I’m having a tough time accepting that phyllis is really gone.

Jack: Yeah, so am I. There were times when I loved her so completely, and times where, like recently, I wanted her to be 100 miles away. But in the end, for better or for worse, she’s been a major factor in my life for decades now.

Danny: Yeah. For the longest time, I… I thought phyllis was the biggest mistake I’d ever made. I kept daniel away from her when he was a kid because I thought she was too toxic. And… well, over the holidays, we, the three of us, had this amazing conversation, and I, uh — I don’t know, we — we got it all out there, you know, made amends and… for a second, I… I thought maybe we’d be friends.

Nick: I don’t think it’d be lost on phyllis — the three of us standing around talking about her.

Jack: Yeah, you’re probably right.

Jeremy: Please. Please. How dare you cry crocodile tears for a woman who you all disrespected, discarded.

Jack: Get lost.

Jeremy: Phyllis told me everything. The rock ‘n’ roll guy who broke her heart for some do-gooder lawyer. The newman heir who could never manage to stay with one woman for too long. And of course, jack, who dumped phyllis and took up with a woman who betrayed you in the worst possible way. My wife is dead. We planned a future, a future that’s never going to happen. So I am not going anywhere till I make sure we get justice.

Jack: Then how about letting the gcpd do their work?

Jeremy: Oh, yeah, the same gcpd that looked the other way when you and diane tried to frame me for theft?

Jack: This is not about you and your grievances and your demands. Shut up or get out of here.

Jeremy: Make no mistake, jack — no matter how the cops handle this investigation, I will not let you or diane get away with what you’ve done. Martial arts is my passion.

“The young and the restless”

will continue. We’re here today to set the record

Victoria: You know, I’ve had a lifetime of practice of dealing with my father. However, I am the ceo of newman enterprises, so I have the power to shape the company the way that I see fit.

Tucker: But wouldn’t acquiring mccall and not allowing adam to run it just create a bunch of conflict for you?

Victoria: Sometimes the risk is worth the reward.

Tucker: Sometimes it isn’T. And you don’t strike me as a good loser.

Victoria: Maybe you’re right. Maybe it doesn’t make any sense trying to acquire mccall.

Kyle: There you go, sweetheart.

Ashley: This should warm you up. Honey. I’m so sorry about your mom. I hope you know that I and — and everybody in our family will do whatever we can to support you. This is unbelievable. I mean, phyllis had more life in her than anybody I know.

Summer: [ Sighs ] You don’t have to pretend like my mom was your favorite person. It’s fine.

Ashley: I know. I mean, we were not best friends. Uh, we managed to… I mean, we did — we had some common ground the last few months. The one thing I know about your mom is that she was so fearless. I mean, when she wanted something, she just went for it. She didn’t care what other people thought. I mean, except for her kids, of course. You know, everything she did, even though it might have looked like it was crazy to the outside world, she did to protect the people that she loved, and summer, you’re at the top of that list. She’s been fighting for you, I mean, ever since the day you were born in that elevator. And then when you fell into a coma, she willed you back to us. You meant everything to her.

Summer: I wasn’t always the best daughter, was I?

Kyle: Hey.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Kyle: [Indistinct] And whatever was going on, everything your mom did over the years, including being dead set against you being involved with me because she thought you were too young, it was out of love.

Ashley: I hope someday, you realize, you’ll look back and you — and you’ll see that none of that matters. None of that negativity, none of the bad stuff matters. The only thing that really lasts is the love — the love that she had for you.

Chance: That container of phyllis’s blood exists. I’ll need a court order to get a test.

I’ll get right on it.

Chance: And keep this quiet, alright? Nobody needs to hear anything until we have concrete evidence. That goes for inside and outside the department. Nobody needs to know.


Chance: Now, assuming that is a viable sample, it might be our only real shot at finding out why phyllis collapsed. Maybe she wasn’t feeling well. Or maybe we’re investigating more than just an accident. My advice, in this one very specific case

Abby: I mean, I-it’s just a big decision, you know, and there’s a lot of things to consider.

Devon: I know.

Abby: Like…

Devon: I know. I know we have to consider chance, I do.

Abby: I mean, it could affect our whole visitation arrangement that we have, and I remember the last time he came here to pick up dominic. I mean, it was very awkward.

Devon: I know, I know. But moving forward, we don’t have to have him come here. We can always drop dominic at his place, right? That’s solved. What else is there?

Abby: Me.

Devon: What’s wrong with you?

Abby: I mean, I — [ Scoffs ] I cheated on my husband, I blew up my whole life, and moving in here that fast?

Devon: Well, I mean, when you put it like that. No, listen, I’m never gonna feel good about how things happened either. But are we just worried about what people are gonna think?

Abby: This just all happened so quickly.

Devon: Does finding true happiness ever happen too quickly?

Abby: I guess, if I’m being completely honest…

[ Chuckles ]

Devon: Hm?

Abby: I do care about how people will see things, how they’ll see me.

Devon: I understand. I understand completely. And I also don’t — I never want you to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. I just — I just know that since losing neil the way we did and hilary and even phyllis collapsing tonight, life isn’t promised to us, right? And I don’t want to hold myself back from being happy just because of how some people might think about my choices. I remember something that you told me I never forgot. You said that you should make decisions based on how you see the future and not how you feel about the past. Remember that?

Abby: Yeah.

Devon: It’s true. It’s absolutely true because, I mean, you and I, we’ve basically done everything we can to make up for what we did. And that’s in the past. And I’m ready to enjoy the future.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Devon: And that future is you, me, and dominic. So here goes my second attempt. Will you move in with me?

Daniel: Thank you.

Sharon: [ Sighs ] It’s hard, isn’t it? I mean, it’s almost impossible to fathom that someone was in this world and that has changed.

Daniel: It just doesn’t seem real.

Sharon: That’s a totally normal reaction when someone you love dies, especially when it’s unexpected.

Daniel: No, no, no, no. This — this is more than that. I mean, none of this makes any sense, and I’m not talking about just tonight. I was with my mom the first time I saw stark. You know what she told me? She told me the guy was a criminal and that he was dangerous, and she meant it. And now what? Now I’m supposed to believe that they got married three days ago? And w-what’s with the way that she just faded and fell to the ground? And her ambulance, it just has this one in a million freak accident? I’m sorry.

Sharon: For what?

Daniel: I didn’t even think about it until now.

Sharon: About what?

Daniel: Cassie. I know the circumstances are different, but all these years later, any time there’s an accident on the road, I still think about her.

Sharon: Neither one of us will ever forget that night. I remember feeling just how you do now, like nothing felt real. And the wisdom that I gained from her tragedy was life is not always logical. Sometimes very bad things happen for no good reason.

Daniel: I keep thinking about the last conversation that I had with my mother. She told me how much she loved me. She told me how proud she was of me. And then she told me how sorry she was because our relationship had been strained recently.

Sharon: I’m glad you got to hear that. In time, that will hopefully bring you some peace.

Daniel: Maybe if I had been nicer to her.

[ Chuckles ] Right? Nope. Nope. I had to freeze her out. I mean, I felt bad about it. I was planning on sitting down with her and talking to her, apologizing, telling her that I loved her. And… now I guess I won’t get that chance.

Sharon: I’m so sorry, daniel.

Daniel: You know, the way my mom came to me, too, though, it was just — it was off. It was out of nowhere. It’s like she had a premonition that something bad was gonna happen. But if she did, then why wouldn’t she do something to stop it? Or why wouldn’t she do something to stop him?

Jeremy: There she is, the woman of the hour. So tell me, how did you do it? How did you kill my wife?

Jack: That’s enough.

Jeremy: I know you’re to blame, diane. You’re the brains of the operation. Jack’s some — some lapdog.

Diane: I didn’t do anything, jeremy, and you know that.

Daniel: What you do to my mother, stark? Did you brainwash her? You blackmail her? Is that how you got her to marry you? Huh? Are you the reason that she’s dead?

Jeremy: Look, I — I know you must be devastated, you know, about losing your mom, you know, looking for answers, blame someone. Let me help you out with that. Phyllis got so close to me so fast because everyone else, including you, turned their backs on her. So if you want to pin her death on someone, look in the mirror.

Danny: Wait, whoa, whoa.

Jeremy: Hey!

Danny: Whoa, whoa, whoa. It’s ok. It’s ok. It’s ok. Shh, shh, shh. Migraine hits hard, so u hit back with ubrelvy

Abby: I just need a little more time to think.

Devon: I understand. I really do. I just know it has to be uncomfortable, living in chance’s family home.

Abby: Yeah, but, I mean, it’s been dominic’s base camp. It’s the place where he was born. And I know that he would love to spend more time with you and more time here, but… I’ve already disrupted his life so much recently. I don’t want this to just be another thing he has to adjust to.

Devon: I do. I do. And that’s the last thing I want to do is stress that little guy out.

Abby: This isn’t a no. It’s not. I just — I want to do this the right way for everyone involved.

Devon: Well, that right there is another reason why I love you.

Abby: There is something that you need to know.

Devon: What do I need to know?

Abby: I love you too. And the one thing I am very, very, very certain about is that anywhere I am with you feels like home.

Tucker: Just like that, just now, you’ve changed your mind about buying my company?

Victoria: Well, you made some very valid points. There are more lucrative investments, for sure. And while I think I am more confident than you are that I would be successful at pushing adam out of mccall, I just wouldn’t want to be wrong about that. I wouldn’t want to make it easy for him. So I’m rescinding my offer.

Tucker: I see. Wow, I didn’t realize I was that persuasive. Or is this some kind of reverse psychology?

Victoria: No, you are. You are actually that persuasive. I’m beginning to understand how you were able to win ashley over. Well, you should enjoy the rest of your evening, tucker.

Tucker: I will.

Victoria: Because newman’s courtship of mccall is officially over.

Summer: Thank you for saying those nice things about my mom.

Ashley: It’s all true. She loves you so much.

Summer: [Crying] I know.

Kyle: Oh, it’s ok. It’s ok.

Summer: I’m gonna — I’m gonna go upstairs and check on harrison.

Ashley: She’s being so brave, but I know she’s devastated.

Kyle: I think she’s gonna get a lot worse before she gets better.

Danny: Daniel, this guy isn’t worth it.

Daniel: Son of a bitch!

Danny: Daniel, come on.

Daniel: No, no, no, you did something to my mother! I know you had something to do with this, and I’m gonna make you pay for it, watch!

Jeremy: Look, we all grieve differently, but trust me, I’m just as eager to punish the real culprit or culprits.

Nick: Chance, do you have an update?

Chance: Well, first of all, I want to say how sorry I am. I understand how much you cared for phyllis, and I am aware of the impact that her loss will have on each one of you.

Jeremy: Quit stalling. Is there any new information?

Chance: I have interviewed the emt again, and I have been in constant contact with the hospital as well as the fire department, and unfortunately, I have nothing new to report. Now, it has been a very long night, I understand that. And I think it’s time for everyone to go home and get some rest.

Jeremy: This is unacceptable.

Chance: Stark, I will inform you as the investigation progresses. You have my word.

Jeremy: All this time with the emt, your heads together? Come on. There’s more that you’re not telling us.

Chance: Stop.

Jeremy: I’m not leaving here until you give us the facts

Chance: Again, I have nothing new. Now, if you would like to push the issue, officer thompson here will escort you down to the station. You two can talk all the facts you want.

Jeremy: This isn’t over.

Chance: I am truly sorry for your loss, daniel.

[ Indistinct conversation ]

Jack: Daniel’s not the only one you’re gonna have to worry about.

You really think one of them could have harmed phyllis summers?

Chance: Maybe. We’ll know more when we get the results back from the blood test. If there’s something in her system that shouldn’t have been, it’s possible what happened to phyllis wasn’t an accident. It’s possible somebody was trying to kill her.
