Kyle: This is a nightmare, dad. An arrest warrant, handcuffs? How can they even think mom killed phyllis?
Jack: I cannot bear the idea of diane spending even another second locked up for a crime I know she did not commit.
Kyle: Well, we– we have to post her bail, whatever it is.
Jack: If she can even get bail. Given her history for pulling disappearing acts, christine may argue for no release at all.
Kyle: Okay, well then what are we supposed to do? We can’t leave her sitting in a cell.
Jack: No, you are right. We have one choice. We have to prove her innocence, which is exactly what I’m going to do. We do have one other issue.
Jack: We don’t have a lot of support, even in our own house.
Kyle: Summer will be adamantly against anything we do. She truly believes my mom had something to do with phyllis’ death.
Jack: Summer is reaching out for answers. She is mistaken about your mother.
Kyle: Yeah. Well, that’s why we have to clear her name, not only for the authorities, but for my wife. If we don’t, I don’t know how my marriage survives.
[ Footsteps approaching, sighs ]
Chance: I guess I don’t have to ask what you’re doing here.
[ Summer sighing ]
Summer: I just couldn’t help myself. I keep thinking about that night and… it’s nagging at me. Something feels off and I can’t let it go.
Chance: And neither can I. Look, summer, maybe this isn’t the best place for you to be right now. You should go home or to the office. Anywhere but here.
Summer: I can’T. I can’t stay away.
Jeremy: You got that, phyllis? You have no life. And if you think you’re going back on our deal, I will make that a permanent reality.
Phyllis: You don’t scare me. You’re not a killer.
Jeremy: Okay, listen. You have absolutely no idea what I’m capable of. And you’re not gonna blow this for me.
[ Phyllis sighing ]
Phyllis: You got what you wanted. Diane is behind bars.
Jeremy: Yeah. And she won’t be for very long if you’re stupid enough to show your face in public. And if my role in your fake death is revealed, I’m going back to prison. And that’s not gonna happen. So, if I have a choice of going back to prison or killing you, that’s not a choice at all.
Adam: Well, after the ultrasound tomorrow, we’ll know the baby’s sex. It means you can get busy designing some very chic baby clothes. I know you’ve moved on from fashion as a career, but can you really resist making our baby the fashion model of the year?
Sally: I’m embarrassed to say I hadn’t even thought of that.
Adam: I’m surprised.
Sally: But now that you mention it, I mean, how can I resist? Our baby can’t wear clothes off the rack, right?
Adam: No! Never.
[ Laughs ] Oh. Not flossing well?
Adam: Oh, it’s a newman family reunion. Should have called. I would’ve got the potato salad and the picnic basket ready.
Nick: Well, I don’t know about dad, but I’m definitely not here to see you.
Adam: Oh, well maybe you’re here to dangle some fresh new company in front of me, only to yank it away again just for fun.
Victor: Surprised to see you here, son. Especially with that lady.
Sally: Adam and I just ran into each other.
Adam: That’s right. I, uh, I insinuated myself into sally’s private tea time. You know how pushy I can be and she was too nice to ask me to leave, but I will not keep her any longer. She’s all yours.
Jack: Hey, we’re both going to have to be understanding of summer’s feelings. How could we not? She’s lost her mother. Grief has colored every part of her life. She’s looking for answers. She wants to blame someone. And diane is her mother’s greatest enemy. But the truth will come out. We’re gonna see to it, right?
Kyle: Absolutely, we are.
Jack: And when it does, summer will see that diane is innocent, just as clearly as we do.
Kyle: Yeah. Well, I’m relieved to hear your faith and mom hasn’t wavered. It’s just you and me, dad. No one else believes in her. Now, all we have to do is convince the world.
Jack: No. What we have to do is figure out what kind of case the gcpd is building against her. What possible evidence could be so damning against diane? I know they came here. I know they searched the house. What could they have found?
Kyle: Well, I’m guessing it’s something that links the poison in phyllis’s system to mom. Whatever it is, it was planted.
Jack: You’re right. You’re right. Stark found some way to get manufactured evidence into this house.
Kyle: Oh, how could he even get in here with all the security?
Jack: I don’t know. He did it somehow.
Kyle: Okay. Well, however he did it, there is no doubt in my mind that he’s framing mom.
Jack: Oh, clearly this is payback for how diane and I framed him for that jewelry heist with the newmans. God. He got exactly what he wanted. All of our lives are turned upside down. This is my fault. Diane would not be in this position if it weren’t for me.
Chance: I can’t imagine how painful it is being here.
Summer: It’s just like the memorial service. Coming here is a part of my penance.
Chance: Penance? Summer, none of this is your fault. You don’t have to do penance for anything. I hope you know that.
Summer: No, I do. I treated my mom so badly at the end. I know that diane’s been arrested, but until she is convicted and sentenced, I owe my mom an enormous debt. I just… I don’t know why I didn’t trust her. I should have believed her and… that’s a mistake that I’m gonna regret for the rest of my life.
Chance: Give yourself a break, okay? Take some time to grieve. You’re being really hard on yourself.
Summer: I am grieving. Coming here, it’s not just a penance. It also brings me some comfort, you know? This is forever gonna be the last place I saw my mom alive.
Phyllis: Listen, I have a plan. I will say that I came up with this entire scheme. That it was all me. I’ll keep your name out of it completely.
Jeremy: Who’s going to believe that? How could you possibly explain it all? Huh? The hijacked ambulance, the poison, the dead body doubles. What possible reason would you give for marrying me when you knew you were gonna fake your own deaths supposedly without me even knowing about it? No. There’s too many holes. It won’t work.
Phyllis: No. I’ll come up with plausible answers for every single thing. Trust me.
Jeremy: There’s no way I wouldn’t be implicated. So no, we are moving on with our plan whether you like it or not.
Phyllis: Look at you. You think you’re scaring me, don’t you? You’re nothing compared to the terrifying thought of my children needing me and I’m not there for them? My strength as a mother is fiercer than anything you got.
Kyle: Dad, I refuse to let you take any of the blame for what mom is going through. Stark has been out for revenge since the day he showed up. He had a plan even before the burglary in chicago. He was determined to make mom pay for rejecting him and helping put him away.
Jack: Of course, I know you’re right, but I have to take some responsibility for underestimating stark. I thought by just standing up to him, freezing him out, he would be neutralized. That not giving him that power in our lives, he would ultimately just give up and go away. Wow, was I wrong.
Kyle: Hey, stark has gotten lucky.
Jack: No, he has been one step ahead the whole way. I couldn’t have been more wrong about any of this. And now… and now phyllis has paid for her life by mistakes I made.
Kyle: Hey, hey. Who could have known how deranged that man is? That he would go as far as to murder phyllis to punish mom. That’s how little he values life.
Jack: I appreciate you defending me, but I– I deserve some of this guilt I am carrying. I… god, I handled this whole thing so badly. And moving forward, we can’t do that. We can’t make any mistakes. We know now, this man is a murderer and if he has that little value for human life, believe me, there’s no stopping him from killing again.
Phyllis: My children are suffering. They’re tortured. You didn’t hear the pain in their voice. Oh. I was wrong. I was wrong to do this. My children don’t hate me.
Phyllis: No. Shh.
[ Phyllis exhales ] I can’t put them through this. I can’t put them through this. Okay? They regret the way that they treated me.
Jeremy: Okay. But you’re out of it now, okay? So deal with it. They made it very clear how they felt about you before your divorce.
Phyllis: I know, but– but they regret it. Seriously. Please, please just listen. They are tortured. They are tormented right now losing their mom like this.
Jeremy: You are blowing this way out of proportion.
Phyllis: I want you to see this from my angle, where I’m coming from, please.
Jeremy: Okay. I really don’t care where you’re coming from. I only care about where you’re going. Away.
Phyllis: I’m not going away!
Jeremy: We had a deal and I held up my end of the deal. Okay? This is exactly what you signed up for. What the hell did you think was gonna happen?
Phyllis: I didn’t know my children were going to suffer.
Jeremy: Oh, they’ll get over it.
Phyllis: No, they won’t get over it.
Jeremy: You wanted a part in taking diane down. Okay, you got it. We pulled it off. Plus you got to see her escorted away in cuffs. That had to be some sort of a satisfaction, huh? Justice served.
Phyllis: At what cost, huh? At what cost? Because what my kids are going through right now, it’s not worth it.
Jeremy: Okay. You’ll get over it.
Phyllis: I did an impulsive thing and I regret it.
Jeremy: Okay. You’ll get over it.
Phyllis: I’m not gonna get over it! Because everyday, I’m gonna look in the mirror and all I’m going to see is diane jenkins. This is what she did. And she let her son suffer for years and years thinking that she was dead. I cannot do that. I can’t go through another minute of this knowing how my children feel. I cannot do it.
Jeremy: Okay, just shut up and think. The only reason your kids softened towards you is because they think you are dead. Now, once you become alive again and they realize that you deliberately put ’em through this hell, trust me, it’s not gonna be sunshine and roses. And on top of that, there’s gonna be some serious consequences.
Phyllis: What are you talking about?
Jeremy: You’ll be facing charges too. And what kind of a happy reunion will it be with you behind bars, okay? That could be you in the prison cell instead of diane. Poor ol’ diane, the living martyr. You’re gonna be the locked up criminal. Hm? Are you gonna let her get away with that, huh? Are you gonna let her win?
Sally: Actually, if you will excuse me. I should be going.
Nick: Well, I showed up at the right time. I’ll drive you to the athletic club then.
Sally: Sure you don’t wanna stay and order something?
Nick: No, I’m good.
Sally: All right. Then, uh, good night.
Adam: Yeah. Thanks again for, um… thanks.
Victor: That was quite a display, son.
Adam: Mm-hmm. What’s that?
Victor: You know exactly what I’m talking about. You and your brother fawning over that woman.
Adam: Okay. Well, I can’t speak for nick, but I hope you have a good night.
Adam: Enjoy your coffee.
Victor: I’m talking to you. Don’t walk away from your father, okay?
[ Adam sighing ] Want luxury hair repair that doesn’t cost $50?
Kyle: You’re right, dad. We have to be on high alert where stark is concerned. We have no idea what he’s capable of.
Jack: I’m gonna call security. Have them double up. I don’t want that man anywhere near this house, especially with harrison here.
Kyle: Agreed. But one way or the other, we have to prove he’s behind what happened to phyllis. How do we even do that?
Jack: Carefully. Very carefully. Especially now that we know he’s not above murder.
Kyle: I’m gonna go check on mom at the police station, see if she needs anything. Hopefully, the initial shock has worn off and maybe she’ll have some fresh ideas as to how stark managed to pull this off.
Jack: Give her my love. Tell her I’ll be there shortly to update her on the whole lawyer situation. I have calls out to every major law firm in chicago, milwaukee, minneapolis. I’m not gonna give up ’til I find the right lawyer. We have to find her the right lawyer.
Summer: What are you doing all alone here tonight? I can’t imagine that you’re still working.
Chance: Actually, I am. I like to take in the crime scene while I think. That helps me kinda paint a picture of what happened. Can’t get that sitting at a desk.
Summer: Have you come up with anything?
Chance: No, not yet. I’m just taking notes.
Summer: Would it help you if I reenacted it? I mean, when my mom collapsed, I– I– I remember every single second of it. I keep replaying it in my head. The whole night, really, from the time that I– I criticized her at the bar ’til when she crumpled here on the floor. I just–
Summer: No, seriously. It’s fine. I promise you. It’s all I think about anyway.
Chance: Let me call somebody for you, okay? Maybe your dad or kyle, maybe your brother.
Summer: No, there’s no need. Daniel’s grieving and kyle’s convinced that his mom is innocent and my dad just hates seeing me in pain. He just wants to give me a shoulder to cry on, but that’s not what I need right now. There’s only one thing that’s gonna make me feel better.
Chance: What’s that?
Summer: Knowing that my mom’s true killer will be punished.
Jeremy: You can see that there’s no way back, right? Only forward. You made your bed, now you have to live with it.
Phyllis: Oh, okay. You’re right. I have to stick with the plan. I have to stick with the plan. If I don’t, I’ll lose everything. Oh, my god. Yeah.
[ Phyllis sighing ] I just have to accept the fact that I have to start life anew.
Jeremy: Good. I was hoping you were gonna say that. Because the alternative…
Phyllis: You made it clear what the alternative is.
Jeremy: Look, there’s nothing bad with starting over. Just picture this. A secluded beach on a remote island where the water is bluer than the sky, the wave splashing against the shore, sipping our tropical drinks while we watch the sunset.
Phyllis: Sipping our drinks?
Jeremy: Oh, I… I didn’t mention that? Change of plans. I’m coming with you. When you have chronic kidney disease.
Announcer: The young and the restless will continue. This isn’t charmin! No wonder I don’t feel as clean. Besides, I wouldn’t want you to be all lonely out there. I think I need to be right by your side, so you won’t be running home anytime soon. I’ll be right there to remind remind you that there’s no turning back now.
[ Jeremy huffing ]
Phyllis: Is that good news?
Jeremy: Yep. And the timing couldn’t be better. It’s an old colleague of mine. He’s helping me with my offshore accounts. I’ve arranged to send half of your money to the island.
Phyllis: Wait a second. Wait. You’re– you’re sending half of my money to your offshore account? I mean, why would you do something like that? You’re just implicating yourself. Diane hasn’t even been found guilty.
Jeremy: [ Scoffs ] Look, diane is still in jail. There’s no one that’s gonna be tracking me.
Phyllis: Yeah, but if you disappear, it makes you culpable and then the police are on your tail, and then that brings you to me and this all blows up in our face.
Jeremy: Hm. Maybe you’re right. I’ll stay here until she’s convicted and then when it’s safe, I’ll come join you.
Phyllis: You’ll join me.
Jeremy: Oh, yeah. We make a great team. There’s no reason to break things up when we have endless possibilities.
Victor: Please have a seat, son.
Adam: All right. I’m listening. What more is there to be said between us, dad?
Victor: I really am sorry you feel that way.
Adam: I’m just– I’m not sure that this conversation is necessary.
Victor: I hope you will take my advice in the spirit in which it is given.
Adam: Go on.
Victor: I think you’re making a terrible mistake.
Adam: You’re gonna need to be a little more specific.
Victor: I’m talking about sally spectra.
Adam: Ah, I see. And what did she do now?
Victor: Are you aware that she’s involved with your brother and they’re trying to make it work out? Son, you need to come to terms with that and move on. Pining over this woman will give you nothing but heartache and disappointment.
Sally: Then I saw mariah and tessa and sharon with baby aria and, oh, she’s just sweet. I couldn’t take my eyes off them. And then adam got caught up in the moment too and god, aria is just such a cutie. I felt like I was witnessing this, like, perfect little miracle. I’m sorry. Am I talking too much?
Nick: No. I do wanna hear about aria, just maybe not right now.
Sally: I understand. Are you okay?
Nick: [ Chuckles ] It’s just been a brutal day. I’m really wiped out.
Phyllis: Okay, don’t you think doing something like this would complicate things?
Jeremy: That’s what we both thrive on, right? Complications. That’s another thing we have in common.
Phyllis: Let’s just focus on taking diane down.
Jeremy: Okay. Come on, phyllis. You didn’t think doing business with me would cost you something? We are husband and wife now. You belong to me. Hey! Hey! Where the hell do you think you’re going? I told myself I was ok with my moderate
Victor: You’re wasting your time pining away over a woman. You’re flirting with your ex-girlfriend who’s involved with your brother.
Adam: Don’t you think I know that? What’s your point?
Victor: My point is mccall unlimited is waiting for you. That’s a much better opportunity.
Adam: Okay, stop. I don’t need you to tell me what my better opportunities are. Why can’t you understand? Sally and I, we’re bounded for life.
Victor: Son, I thought you were a little bit more mature than that. You sound like a teenager whose love struck. Come to your senses, son.
Adam: You really– you don’t know, do you? Looks like you’ve been left out of the loop, dad. Sally’s having my baby and I’m still in love with her.
Sally: I’m sorry for going on and on when you’ve had such a horrible day. I’m– I’m sure the memorial was heartbreaking.
Nick: Yeah. And on top of that, summer’s mother-in-law was just arrested for killing phyllis, which makes the pain that much worse. There isn’t anything I can do about it. Then, there’s my sister.
Sally: What’s going on with her?
Nick: Vic is setting herself up for a boatload of trouble. I can see it coming. I’ve warned her, but she will not listen to me.
Sally: That sounds like a lot of weight to carry around. Look, you always look after me. Let me look after you for once.
Nick: Well, I appreciate the offer, but don’t you know looking after you is like my favorite thing to do in this world? Being with you right now is exactly what I need.
Jack: Christine, please apologize to your assistant for me. I maybe got too aggressive in trying to find out where I could locate you.
Christine: Jack, I really don’t think it’s wise for us to be speaking right now.
Jack: I understand. I just want some advice.
[ Christine grunts softly ]
Christine: If this is about the case–
Jack: No, it is not– at least not the way you think. I’m in a bit of a loss right now. I was hoping that perhaps you could recommend a good defense attorney. I’ve been making a few phone calls and I wanna get the very best. I wanna do everything I can to help diane.
Christine: I’m sure.
Jack: Well, some of the big name attorneys don’t wanna represent a woman who deceived the whole town and faked her own death. I thought maybe by this point I would know something to tell them about the case against her as they could be good candidates. The evidence that you–
Christine: I understand, okay? I– I understand. That will all come out in discovery. Jack, honestly, I want to help you, but my hands are tied. I am bound by the law and my own personal code of ethics. I know you understand. This is nothing personal.
Jack: Yeah, of course.
Christine: And I do wish you luck in finding an attorney for diane.
Summer: I know that you’re doing everything you can to find out exactly what happened that night. I just… I don’t want you to get distracted trying to look for evidence against stark. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure that that man took advantage of my mom. I mean, clearly, he manipulated her into marrying him, but diane is the reason my mom is dead.
Chance: Summer, you know I can’t talk about the investigation and I don’t want you to get involved. No more stunts. Don’t try to pull anything else like you did at the memorial service trying to coax a reaction out of diane. That was risky enough.
Summer: I know. It’s just all that I think about. I mean, my mom collapsed right there. Right, right there. It’s an image that I’m gonna have to live with for the rest of my life.
Chance: I hate seeing you like this. I really do. Let me drive you home.
Kyle: I think you’ve done enough for now.
Phyllis: I mean it. Let me out, jeremy.
Jeremy: No, I don’t think so.
Phyllis: You’re gonna keep me in here?
Jeremy: If I have to. You didn’t change your mind, did you? It was all an act. You’re going back into town for the kids, aren’t you?
Phyllis: You can’t stop me from doing that.
Jeremy: Oh, I think I can. And I can make this all stop, but I will put you in a shallow grave if I have to.
Phyllis: You’re bluffing. You’re not going back to prison.
Jeremy: [ Laughs ] You don’t get it, do you? You’re already dead. No one’s gonna look for your body. Killing you is a victimless crime.
Phyllis: What are you doing? What are you doing? You don’t have to do that.
Jeremy: You leave me no choice.
Phyllis: Please, jeremy. Please. Oh, my god. Please, no. Oh, my god! No!
(Cheery music) – they get it.
Nick: You know what? Enough talk with all this loss and sad stuff. Let’s talk about something a lot more fun.
Sally: That sounds like a great idea.
Nick: I cannot wait to go to your doctor’s appointment with you. I get to be right by your side when we find out if you’re gonna have a little scrapper or a beautiful little princess.
Sally: Yes, it is going to be very exciting, but I have some news to break.
Nick: Okay. What is it?
Sally: I’m not sure if you’re gonna like it.
Nick: Oof. Really? All right. I’m listening.
Sally: Look, you know, I am so excited for you to be there tomorrow and– and you know to look out for me like you always do.
Nick: I wouldn’t miss it for anything in this world.
Sally: Well, it’s not just gonna be the two of us at the appointment tomorrow. I invited adam to join us.
[ Sally sighing ]
Victor: This is unexpected. Are you sure sally spectra is telling the truth?
Adam: What do you mean?
Victor: It’s not some drama she created, like a supposedly fatal illness while she was in los angeles?
Adam: No, dad. I assure you, this is legit.
Victor: Why has she not told your brother about this?
Adam: She has told nicholas about this. He knows.
Victor: Man, oh man, oh man, oh man. What the hell are you two doing? I don’t get any of this.
Adam: There was a paternity test. I’m sure nick wishes he was the father, but I won out.
Victor: You think you won out? You think this is a victory?
Adam: I think that you should start speaking more kindly about your next grandchild.
Victor: You are involved with a woman that is now involved with your brother. This pisses me off!
Adam: I don’t know why.
Victor: Don’t you understand any of this? What has gotten into you? You should be working. You should have purpose in your life, a direction in your life, instead of pining away over a woman that is now with your brother. What the hell are you thinking?
Adam: You just, you don’t get it, do you?
Victor: No, I don’t!
Adam: Connor and my new son or daughter, your grandchild, that is my purpose. That is my sense of direction.
[ Victor exhaling ]
Kyle: You okay? When you weren’t at home, I had a feeling you might be here.
Summer: You didn’t have to track me down.
Kyle: Yeah, I did. I was worried about you.
Chance: It’s probably a good idea to get her home.
Kyle: Look, I just came from visiting my mother in jail. She’s in there alone and suffering because of you and the rest of your police force. You are harassing her and falsely accusing her of a crime she never would’ve committed in a million years. Meanwhile, the most obvious suspect, jeremy stark, he’s still out there free as a bird.
Chance: I have evidence that says otherwise.
Kyle: Oh, what evidence?
Chance: You’ll see.
Kyle: I’m warning you, chance. Don’t fill summer’s head with your crazy baseless theories. You have nothing but trumped-up planted evidence. These accusations against my mother are not true. She is not some cold-blooded killer.
Summer: Kyle, just stop. Nobody is filling my head with anything.
Kyle: Okay, but chance is making his job to prove to people my mom is guilty.
Summer: You know, I don’t wanna get into this with you right now. Let’s just go home, please.
Kyle: Of course. Of course. This is borderline harassment. You already put my mom in jail, stay away from my wife or I will find a way to make you pay, detective.
Jack: Christine, we have known each other for a long time now. I’m not asking that much. I just need to know what we’re dealing with. Is there anything you can tell me? Anything at all?
Christine: Jack, good night and good luck.
[ Jack sighing ]
Jack: Hey, I’m glad you picked up. I appreciate you asking. Things are a little more urgent now than they were the last time we spoke. It appears you are diane’s last chance. Is there anything I can do to change your mind? She needs you. My family needs you, michael.
[ Phyllis panting ]
