Jack: Can we meet? Something you need to hear. Hmm. Sure thing. Drop by. Home all day.

Tucker: Hey, jack. How goes it?

Jack: You know, just when I think you couldn’t stoop any lower, you couldn’t do any worse, you somehow always manage to surprise me. Let’s talk. Shall we?

[ Phone chiming ]

Daniel: Great.

Michael: Nice to see you too.

Daniel: Hey, um, do– do you have a minute?

Michael: Actually, I don’T.

Daniel: Good. Let’s go.

Michael: No. I mean, why? Where? And again, why?

Daniel: We need a lawyer and you’re the best in town.

Michael: Huh. Well, flattery will get you everywhere, but actually I’m working on diane’s case at the moment.

Daniel: We’re going to the abbott house.

Michael: Is this about diane?

Daniel: It’s about proving once and for all that she didn’t kill my mother.

Michael: Oh. What are we waiting for, then?

Billy: I wonder what’s keeping connor and chelsea?

Johnny: Maybe he just had his weekly nerd club meeting.

Billy: Easy. That’s your kid brother.

Johnny: Exactly. That’s why I get to say stuff like that. Back when he was just my cousin, it was a completely different story.

Billy: Right, right, right. So, let me get this straight. You can only say things like that if it comes from love?

Johnny: Yeah.

Billy: Ah. You two still gaming together?

Johnny: We haven’t played much lately.

Billy: Too much homework?

Johnny: Not for me. Also, when I try to talk to him at school, it’s like, I don’t know, like he’s avoiding me.

Billy: Really? Why? Why do you think that is?

Johnny: Don’t know. Maybe there’s something going on that no one’s told me about.

Billy: [ Sighs ] Yeah. Look, um… your uncle adam is having another baby. A girl.

Johnny: With sally?

Billy: Yes, with sally. Which, you know, gets a little awkward because your uncle nick is dating sally.

Johnny: Well, at least she’s gonna be too little to talk all day long. Unlike some people I know–

[ Sneezes ] Katie.

Billy: Easy. You are talking about my daughter, young man.

Johnny: Mm. Well, maybe connor’s getting the better deal with his sister. When he gets here I’ll offer him to trade.

Connor: Trade what?

Devon: You ready? Don’t be nervous. Oh, look who it is.

Harmony: Oh, my gosh! Will you look at this handsome little man?

Devon: Dominic…

Harmony: Oh, my gosh.

Devon: …I want you to meet your grandma.

Harmony: Well, hello.

Devon: Say hi.

Harmony: How are you? Aren’t you just the cutest little thing! Oh, my god! [ Laughs ]

Devon: Say hello. You wanna hold him?

Harmony: Yes.

Devon: Yeah?

Harmony: Ah. Oh, my god. We are gonna have the best time today. Do you know that? Look at your cute little outfit. Look at your dinosaur that matches your dinosaur. Aren’t you just the most precious thing in the world?

Devon: Say, “thank you, grandma.”

Harmony: Oh, you are all mine today. You are. Yes, you are. Will you look at this face?

Devon: I know.

Harmony: This face. Ah, it reminds you how the world is just a wondrous place. Full of miracles. Yes, it is. Want luxury hair repair that doesn’t cost $50?

Chelsea: Sorry we kept you guys waiting.

Billy: Oh, that’s all right. It’s all right. Is everything good?

Chelsea: Yeah, it’s good.

Connor: So, what are we trading?

Billy: Well, I was just telling johnny that you are expecting a new baby sister.

Johnny: Welcome to the big brothers club.

Connor: Right. Whoop-de-doo.

Johnny: Oh, here’s the good news. She’s not living under your roof and she’ll be too little to talk, so…

Connor: I’m not hungry. I just wanna go home.

Chelsea: Really? This is the first time this kid’s ever turned down a snack.

Billy: You know, there are benefits to having a sister. There are. Why don’t you fill him in? Tell– tell the young man all the great things.

Johnny: Well, first time she burps the way you taught her to, that’s cool. Also, you can take your broccoli from your plate and just put it on her plate–

Billy: Okay. You’re done. Cut off.

Johnny: Hey, I speak the truth.

Billy: Don’t listen to anything he says.

Chelsea: What can we get you, sweetheart? Do you want a pizza?

Johnny: I’m in.

Billy: What do you want, buddy?

Connor: Nothing.

Billy: Nothing like nothing on your pizza or just like nothing at all?

Connor: Nothing! At all.

Devon: You know, you’re definitely gonna have to visit a lot more often ’cause dominic clearly is in love with you. You wore him out.

Harmony: [ Laughs ] That’s the joy of being a grandmother, you know? It’s a different kind of love.

Devon: Yeah, I guess so.

Harmony: You know it makes me think of my own mother? God, she used to love you up.

Devon: Oh, I remember. I was very lucky. I’ve had a lot of incredible people in my life.

Harmony: Yes. And you’re making every single one of them incredibly proud.

Devon: Yeah.

Harmony: Especially as a dad.

Devon: Well, that means everything to me. So, thank you.

Harmony: Yeah. And now you’ve got tucker on your side.

Devon: Mm.

Harmony: I mean, it’s good of him to be making the effort, I suppose.

Devon: Yeah. It’s better late than never.

Harmony: You gotta give the guy some credit, right?

Devon: Do I?

Harmony: [ Sighs ] Listen, okay? The sad and awful truth is, is not everybody’s cut out to be a parent. Okay? And– or takes to it as naturally as neil did. And by the time most people figure that out about themselves, it’s too late. You’re lucky to have had him.

Devon: Yeah. I… having neil as a role model has changed my whole world. I wanna ask you a question, though.

Harmony: Ask away.

Devon: I know I kinda put you on the spot the other night when I asked your opinion about me changing my last name.

Harmony: You mean like all those people standing around? What would I have said if it was just the two of us?

Devon: Yeah, something like that.

Harmony: Okay. Well, here’s your chance.

Devon: Okay. Are you really okay with me doing that? And going by devon winters?

[ Sighs ]

Tucker: I feel like I’ve been called into the principal’s office. What’s my offense? Was that your half a grapefruit I ate this morning?

Jack: What is your excuse for what you did to diane?

Tucker: You’re gonna have to be more specific.

Jack: Trying to convince her to leave town right after I managed to get a judge to allow us to post bail. Why would you put her freedom in jeopardy?

Tucker: Is that how she framed it? That’s not wholly accurate. I just helped her face facts.

Jack: Oh, and what are the facts according to tucker mccall?

Tucker: Well, the evidence is starting to pile up against her, jack. And she’s got her checkered past to contend with also. So, I merely illustrated her choices, which are, according to tucker mccall, uh, to re-traumatize you and her son by putting you both through a very public trial, which will most likely lead to her conviction, or she can leave.

Jack: Oh, so, did you give her this little pep talk at ashley’s behest?

Tucker: Yeah. No. No, not at all. You know, diane and I have a history of our own, and I care about her.

Jack: She does not need you to tell her what she is up against.

Tucker: I don’t think you’re quite getting what I’m talking about here. She has to convince not only a judge, but half the people in this town, and her daughter-in-law, that she is blameless in this. And if you think that coming back to genoa city has earned diane anything but sneers and whispers, think again. And now she’s charged with murder. And you think I’m a bad guy for telling her to get out while she can? I used to wait to run my dishwasher

Jack: You’ve forgotten one very important thing: Diane is innocent.

Tucker: As if that matters. Well, it matters to you, of course. But, jack, you know as well as I do, the people in this town never let go of anything. And this stain on diane is just gonna trickle down all the way to harrison.

Jack: What are you talking about?

Tucker: Well, do you think that walnut grove is going to sell diane’s brownies at their bake sale? And are you sure your companies are gonna survive her presence in your life? Listen, even if she is found innocent, she’s always going to be labeled genoa city’s murderer. Period. I mean, do you really want to help her?

Jack: Of course, I do.

Tucker: Okay. Then do whatever you can, legally or otherwise, to get her the hell out of this place. Anyway, I’m gonna take my leave of you now, gonna find a nice quiet place to relax and enjoy my life. Everyone’s so tense around here, bro.

[ Tucker sighs ]

[ Door slams shut ]

Devon: I wanna make sure that you know that by me doing this, it doesn’t change what you mean to me or I don’t–

Harmony: Well–

Devon: I’m not gonna forget where I come from.

Harmony: That’s good to know.

Devon: It’s the truth. It just feels right to go by winters.

Harmony: A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, right?

Devon: I’m getting shakespeare.

[ Harmony laughs ]

Harmony: You know, I have gone by a few names myself. Doesn’t change what’s on the inside. You can call yourself the crown prince of genoa city. Okay? You will always be my son. Can you imagine living in a world where you weren’t free to be who you wanna be? My grandson, he is the luckiest kid in the world. He’s gonna be able to grow up to be a– a what? A– a musician or a business tycoon or even a statesman.

Devon: Yeah.

Harmony: All of the above or anything in between.

Devon: He can do it all. He can be a carpenter.

Harmony: Right?

Devon: Be a pilot.

[ Both laugh ]

Harmony: A world without limits and you ought make it fun for him, you know? That way, he won’t know that he’s learning. He’ll just learn to love it, whatever it is.

[ Xylophone toy dings ]

Devon: That’s true.

[ Laughs ] That’s very true. It was really nice to see you playing with him today. He was… he was having a lot of fun.

Harmony: Wasn’t he?

Devon: Yeah.

Harmony: You know, I used to play with you like that.

Devon: I remember.

Harmony: Oh, no, you don’T. You–

Devon: I do.

Harmony: That’s impossible.

Devon: No, it’s not. I definitely remember. We used to build forts all the time. We used to build forts with all those blankets that we had and you would make snacks.

Harmony: Yes. Cheese and crackers.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Harmony: Yep. I did the best with what I had.

Devon: Yeah. And you always had music playing, too.

Harmony: Mm. Now, what is life without music?

[ Clicks tongue ]

Devon: Those are good memories.

Harmony: Mm. They weren’t anything special.

Devon: They were very special to me. It was the times that were good that you never forget.

Harmony: Yeah.

Devon: I didn’t mean to say that to make you feel bad or…

Harmony: It’s all good. I know what you meant. I know there was a lot of not so good times. I’m sorry about that.

Devon: It’s okay, mom. You’re here. You’re here today.

Harmony: Mm.

> Devon: You’re here today. And dominic gets to grow up and have you in his life. And he gets to have the best of you. He gets to have a grandmother that’ll get on the floor with him and play with toys and make sound effects like you used to do with me.

Harmony: Yeah, those were some fun memories, weren’t they?

Devon: They were really fun times. And no matter what I’m ever going through in my life, remembering those fun times with you, it always put a smile on my face.

Billy: Let me tell you a little something about a ham and pineapple pizza. Okay? Don’t make that face. I know. I get it. It sounds like total chaos on a pizza crust, but it’s perfect. The sweetness of the pineapple coming together with the saltiness of the ham, I mean, it’s divine.

Chelsea: Ooh. I’m down. New is good.

Billy: New is good.

Johnny: Ooh, okay. Um, how about we get two pizzas? One for the people with the dead taste buds and one for the bros.

Billy: Mm.

Connor: Is this the part where we do the pretending?

Chelsea: Sweetheart, what are you talking about?

Connor: Everything. That’s not the point.

Billy: Okay. I could use a little bit of fresh air. What do you say? You wanna join me, connor? Yeah. Of course, you do. You don’t mind, do you?

Chelsea: Not at all.

Billy: Okay. Come on. After you.

[ Chelsea exhales ]

[ Door closes ]

Kyle: Hey. Where’s mom?

Jack: She is upstairs resting.

Kyle: Oh, she’s sleeping in an actual bed in a quiet room after getting outta jail. She must feel like royalty.

Jack: Yeah. We finally get her out of that den of thieves and she comes home to a full dose of our resident bottom feeder.

Kyle: Mm. Tucker? What happened?

Jack: I– I don’t want you worrying about tucker. How are things going with summer?

Kyle: Every time I try to get her to sit and talk to me, she jumps up and finds an excuse to take off.

Jack: To where?

Kyle: She packed up harrison and they took off to parts unknown, which is actually fine because the less she knows about me trying to dig up info on stark, the better.

Jack: I hate that you’re involved in any of that. I know I can’t stop you. Promise me you will be careful.

[ Knock at door ]

Kyle: I got it. Daniel.

Daniel: Hey, kyle. Is your dad home?

Kyle: Yeah, he’s in there.

Daniel: Uh, whoa, whoa. We got one more coming.

Kyle: Who?

Michael: Hey.

Kyle: Hey.

Michael: That would be me.

Kyle: What’s going on? Dad?

Jack: I am not sure I know myself.

Michael: That makes three of us.

Daniel: Where’s summer?

Kyle: She’s out.

Daniel: Good. Good. I don’t– I don’t think she’s ready for what I’m about to say.

Jack: What’s going on, daniel? What’s wrong?

Daniel: Phyllis is alive. – This is our premium platinum coverage map

Billy: So, look, buddy, it’s a lot, right? You know, it’s kind of a big deal to find out that you’re gonna have a new baby sister. I get that. But that doesn’t mean your parents are gonna love you any less.

Connor: I know that. I’m not five.

Billy: No, you’re not. And that’s a good thing. So, why don’t you tell me what the problem is?

Connor: Because my life is picture perfect?

Billy: Well, you know, now that I think about it, you do have a lot going on. But everybody does. So, why don’t you be specific. Why don’t you tell me what you’re upset about?

Connor: Does it even matter?

Johnny: Should we start with ice cream?

Chelsea: Mm. Words to live by.

[ Chelsea exhales ]

Johnny: Sorry, I’m not really good at being a helpful big brother.

Chelsea: But you’re katie’s big brother.

Johnny: Yeah. And she’s not really the worst as far as siblings go. Please do not tell her I said that.

Chelsea: Cross my heart. You may not know this, but katie is crazy about you. I never had a brother or sister, so katie’s lucky to have you. And connor is, too, even though he doesn’t act like it all the time.

Johnny: I’ll be right back.

[ Sighing ]

Harmony: You know, I have a lot of good memories of our time together.

Devon: Do you?

Harmony: Yeah. One in particular.

Devon: What is it?

Harmony: Um, you were about four or five, I don’t remember, but it doesn’t matter. Um, there was this park near our place.

Devon: Yeah, yeah.

Harmony: It’s this little sliver of land with, like, these bushes and swings and, um, there were these two toy cars sitting out there, almost like they were sitting there waiting for their owner to come back.

Devon: Mm.

Harmony: And so we stopped and we looked around and there was nobody around. So, the next morning when we came back, you’d sneak a look to see, because you were afraid somebody might have come and claimed them, right? And so you go, “one more day. One more day, mama. And then I can take ’em home.” And I’m like, “well, that sounds fair to me.”

Devon: And then what happened?

Harmony: Said you waited three whole days because you didn’t want some kid to come back and not be able to find his toys.

Devon: Oh.

Harmony: Yeah. You just couldn’t handle that. But when we came back to the park–

Devon: They were still there?

Harmony: Yep. And you brought them home and you put them up on the shelf and you took such good care of them, like they were gold. Yeah. And that’s when I knew who you were.

Devon: And who’s that?

Harmony: A man that was willing to wait for his blessings. Who is generous. Who thinks about other people and wants to give other people a chance. And a man who really likes cars.

Devon: [ Laughs ] You got the car part right for sure.

Harmony: Yeah. You know, it’s like those cars were meant for you. Like, this whole life that you’ve created for yourself, it’s meant for you. That’s why I know that dominic will get all the blessings that were meant for him. And I’m not talking about toys and money. I’m talking about the things that money can’t buy. You know, never-ending supply of people who will love and support and guide him. He’s a very lucky little man indeed.

Daniel: Look, you don’t understand. I have seen my mother.

Michael: I’ve seen your mother, too.

Daniel: You have?

Michael: Yeah. In my thoughts.

Daniel: No, no, no, no. Michael, I’m talking about in real life. Living, breathing, speaking. Look, I got a phone call the other night, I don’t know from who. They asked me to meet them in the park at the lookout. So, I went. It was mom. I mean, I thought I was hallucinating, but she was real. Her death was a lie.

Kyle: Wait, wait. Why didn’t she call summer?

Daniel: I don’t know, kyle. I don’t know. Maybe she thought that summer was too loyal to you and jack and she couldn’t trust her to be unbiased.

Michael: Did she tell you what happened the night of the gala?

Daniel: She did. She told me the whole story. She told me that stark had concocted this whole scheme to try and take down diane, just as we all suspected. And stark coerced her to– to help him. But he lied to her. He manipulated her. He threatened her. And eventually, she gave in and she did whatever he demanded.

Jack: What about the fight? We– and we all saw her collapse.

Daniel: We did. It was all staged, jack. And then after she was dead, she decided, you know, she was having second thoughts. She wanted to come back and tell everyone the truth. But– but stark, he– that’s when he attacked her. You know, he had set up the revenge, the money, the disappearance. He had set that all up so perfectly that he wasn’t about to let her ruin his plan.

Jack: Oh, my god.

Daniel: Everybody already thought she was dead. Nobody was gonna be looking for her. Nobody was gonna be missing her. She would’ve been just another body to dispose of. So, she did what she had to do. She didn’t have any other choice. She grabbed a pair of scissors–

Michael: Wait, phyllis? Phyllis killed stark?

Daniel: A convicted criminal–

Kyle: Murdered–

Daniel: Self-defense. It was self-defense. Listen, I’m telling you, I weighed out what she told me. I mean, it’s pretty clear to me that it was either his life or hers. From where I’m sitting, I think she made the right choice.

Kyle: This is insane.

Michael: And yet it’s the only thing that’s made sense so far.

Jack: And it is the irrefutable proof we’ve been looking for that diane is innocent.

Kyle: Just like we said from the start.

Jack: I wanna move on this. I want her name cleared. I want the charges dropped.

Michael: All right, hold on. Hold on. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I don’t wanna refute your irrefutable proof. But… where is phyllis now?

Daniel: I have no idea. When you have chronic kidney disease.

“The young and the restless” will continue.

Jack: I… [Stammering] I don’t know what to think.

Kyle: Phyllis, alive, all this time.

Jack: Daniel, when you saw her, what–

Michael: First things first. Let’s backtrack. Do you have any proof what you’re saying is real? Did you take a picture?

Daniel: No. Michael, I didn’t take a picture. I wasn’t thinking straight. I didn’t know if it was a prank. I– I didn’t even know if anybody was gonna show up.

Michael: All right. Well, how did she get to the park? Was she driven? Did she drive? I wonder what route she–

Jack: You could get a video capture from cctv.

Kyle: I knew mom was innocent. And– and phyllis is alive. I need to tell summer.

Daniel: Don’T. Don’t do that.

Kyle & jack: What? Why not? This changes everything for her, for us. Look, she reached out to you.

Daniel: Exactly. She came to me, kyle. I mean, that kinda news, it could break summer’s heart. I don’t want her tearing herself up inside wondering why mom came to me and not to her. Why I was the one that she trusted with this and why she was left out in the cold. It’s the kind of thing that could leave a kid with some hurt feelings.

Jack: Hurt feelings? People’s lives are at stake, daniel.

Kyle: You’re gonna keep this from her for how long?

Jack: Phyllis put us through hell! All so that she could get diane behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit. And now you don’t want us to tell summer? When do the lies and deception stop?

Billy: Look, being mad is like having a rock in your shoe. It’s not fun. But that’s why we’re here. We’re here to try and help you. That’s what we wanna do.

Connor: You just don’t get it.

Billy: You’re right. I don’t get everything. So, why don’t you tell me. What am I missing?

Johnny: Well, you’ve never had someone bring a whole new human being home and just been like, “here, this is yours. Forever. Get over it.”

Billy: That’s true. But you love your sister.

Johnny: Yeah, but you always have company even if you don’t always want it.

Billy: Look, connor, you don’t have to fall in love with the idea right now.

Johnny: But there’s nothing you can do about it, so…

Connor: Oh, my god! Do we have to keep doing this? I’m fine. It’s great. Can we go back inside?

Tucker: Hello!

Devon: Tucker.

Tucker: How you doing?

Devon: Come on in, man.

Tucker: Thanks.

Devon: Glad you’re here.

Tucker: Hey! There she’S. You’re glad I’m here?

Devon: Glad you’re here. Yeah.

Tucker: Uh-oh. [ Chuckles ] I shudder to think why.

Devon: I just appreciate you getting in touch with my mom and letting her know about neil’s party the other night.

Tucker: I’m just happy to see you both together.

Harmony: Well, you know, miracles happen. I mean, look at you. You’re still alive and kicking even after all the hell you’ve raised, so if that isn’t a miracle…

Tucker: Where’s dom?

Devon: Oh.

Harmony: He’s asleep.

Tucker: Ah, see? I know I should’ve called. Hey, did you show her how good he is on that little keyboard?

Devon: I didn’t have to because she brought him the whole band.

Harmony: [ Laughs ] Okay. That’s not true. I just– I bought him the basic essentials that every little budding musician needs, you know?

Tucker: Like?

Harmony: Like the guitar, a little tiny trumpet, little baby drums.

Tucker: I like the way you think.

Harmony: [ Laughs ] And you should watch him. The way he discovers each instrument, you know? Like, loving the sounds. And what can this do? He’s like a budding phenom in the making.

Devon: Well, I’ll be sure to call both of you at 5:00 A.M. When he’s playing those drums on a saturday and see how cute he really is. [ Laughs ]

Harmony: What can I say? It’s the family curse. And what about you? When are you gonna get back to the basics? You know, music used to be your life. You can’t tell me that you don’t miss the studio instead of an office. You need to tell devon that he needs to take some time and get back to what matters.

Tucker: I no longer offer unsolicited opinions per the new terms of our relationship.

Harmony: Mm. Well, lucky for you, you and I haven’t made such an agreement, so you’re about to get an earful from me.

Devon: Oh, yeah?

Harmony: Okay. I’m gonna keep it short and sweet.

Devon: Okay.

Harmony: You need to get back to your calling.

Devon: My calling.

Harmony: Mm-hmm. Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Jack: So, you’re telling me that phyllis, who went on and on about how despicable diane was to leave her son and her friends behind to mourn, did exactly the same thing?

Daniel: She was forced to do what she did.

Jack: Well, I’d like to think she didn’t do it by choice.

Daniel: She wasn’t herself, jack. Everyone that she loved deserted her. Nobody believed her.

Jack: Why didn’t she ask for help?

Daniel: Oh, well, that’s– that’s easy. Would you have helped her if she asked you? Yeah. Look, does she regret what she did? You better believe she does. But she’s been punished enough, by us, by herself. Yes, she made some shortsighted choices to trust the wrong man. And she couldn’t turn to us before. But we can’t let her down now.

Devon: So, how am I supposed to go back to running a soundboard when I’m busy running a business and raising a genius that’s upstairs? It’s a lot of work, you know.

Harmony: Okay. You can’t call it work when you love what you do. And the last I checked, you still have blue notes and hi-hats and slick cats in your blood.

Devon: I always will, but…

Harmony: Yeah. I just think it’s a shame for it to all go to waste. That’s all I’m saying.

Devon: Okay. I know what you’re saying. I’m just trying to focus right now on this new family dynamic I have going with abby, and being the best father I can be to dominic.

Tucker: As you should.

Devon: Thank you. And I still have my label. It’s still under chancellor-winters. So, you know, I’m music-adjacent.

Harmony: [ Laughs ] Yeah. Well, how could that possibly be enough for someone like you? I mean, you’ve got, like, all this–

Dominic: Dada.

Devon: Oh, look at that. Saved by the dom.

Harmony: Mm-hmm.

Devon: I’ll be back.

Tucker: Dada.

Harmony: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: Do you love it?

Harmony: [ Laughs ] I do.

Jack: Daniel, I know you’ve been put through a lot, but don’t try to lay the blame at my feet. I had nothing to do with the choices your mother made.

Daniel: You sure about that? ‘Cause as far as I can tell, this all started when you wouldn’t listen to her about diane.

Jack: She had other friends. She could have turned to lauren or michael.

Michael: Has she tried to contact you since you saw her?

Daniel: As a matter–

Jack: You know what, get– just get her to come back. We’ll let the police straighten this out.

Daniel: Really? So, you just want her arrested and locked up after she’s already been traumatized by stark?

Jack: That was good enough for diane.

Daniel: So is your forgiveness, jack. I hope you’ll remember that when my mom’s return is the only thing standing between a life of freedom and a life behind bars for diane.

Michael: I’m gonna ask you again. Have you heard from your mother since you saw her in the park?

Daniel: No. No, I haven’T.

Kyle: We need to call christine. There’s gotta be a way to use daniel’s statement to get the state to drop their murder charges.

Daniel: And– and to clear my mother of any wrongdoing, since stark was behind this whole thing. Now that he’s dead, I mean, the case is moot, right?

Michael: As much as I’d like to make this all go away, I’m afraid it’s not gonna play out quite the way you’d like.

Billy: Let’s just give this one more minute and then we’ll head back inside. Okay? Promise.

Connor: You hated me and my mom when you found out she was your bio mom.

Johnny: At first, yeah. It sucked. Then it just… didn’T. And now I love hanging out with you and her. I just needed a second.

Connor: Because you have someone else to boss around and lecture. I was talking to billy, not you. For copd, ask your doctor about breztri.

Harmony: [ Sighs ] It’s just that when you have a god-given talent– and let’s face it, it is in his dna, okay? It is an affront to the universe for him to not put it out there, you know?

Tucker: Yeah.

Harmony: Put it to good use for the world to enjoy.

Tucker: Uh, no comment…

[ Laughs ] On this debate or any other debate. I’m still on shaky ground with him. With everyone, it seems.

Harmony: I hope everything’s okay with you and ashley after I left you two the other night. I mean, given our past…

Tucker: Oh.

Harmony: Bound to be some ruffled feathers when I come on to the scene.

Tucker: Future is all that matters.

Devon: Go to sleep

go to sleep

[ Devon humming ]

Harmony: Mm.

[ Tucker laughs ]

Harmony: Well, I guess if he has to put music aside, I can’t think of a better reason.

Tucker: Yep.

Harmony: Yeah.

Tucker: You know, I realize that our relationship was not all sunshine and roses, but at least we got devon out of it, right?

Harmony: Mm.

Tucker: And now dom.

Harmony: Yeah. I feel like we’re the lucky ones.

Tucker: Mm-hmm.

Johnny: Why are you mad at me? What did I do? I mean, what’s the big deal anyways?

Billy: Well, he thinks it’s a big deal right now. And he’s not feeling like his best self.

Connor: Nobody asked you to come out here.

Billy: Okay. Listen, we’re family, okay? He loves you. You’re just gonna have to get used to that. But you’re right. Families have a way of inserting themselves in situations whenever they want. Sometimes it’s a good thing. Most of the time it’s great. But we will table that conversation ’til a more peaceful time.

Johnny: Yeah, that’s gonna happen.

Billy: Hey, you’re not helping right now.

[ Johnny sighing ] Look, connor… you got a lot going on right now. Okay? And I’m sure it feels like it’s all out of control. But you’re growing up and all those things that are clouding your view of the world, well, sometimes they end up bigger than you ever expect. If you need some time and some space to process all of this, that’s totally fine. But you gotta trust your mother. You need to tell her what’s going on inside of here. Okay? You gotta at least give her a hint.

Connor: If it’ll get everybody to back off, fine.

[ Johnny sighs ]

Billy: I think that went pretty well.

Johnny: Mm.

Kyle: Everything will work out. Phyllis is alive. The state will have to drop the charges.

Daniel: Yeah. And I can sign an affidavit or whatever. I’m all you need to prove that diane’s not a killer.

Michael: I need evidence. What I don’t need is the word of a grieving son who has just seen his mother days after she purportedly died.

[ Huffs ] Damn it! That’s the legal system talking. That’s not me. I am sorry. There is a mountain of evidence to refute your word, daniel. And if you go in front of a judge and start talking about apparitions from the grave, you are asking for trouble. Aiding and abetting, obstruction of justice charges.

Daniel: I was only trying to help.

Michael: And your knowledge of how stark was killed could make you look like a suspect.

Kyle: Phyllis is the only one who can clear her name now.

Daniel: I mean, she did the things that she did to try and protect the people that she loves. I mean, she could have died at any point during that plan. Stark sure as hell tried to kill her at the end. And if she didn’t defend herself, she’d be the one who we found floating face down in a lake. Michael, come on, there’s gotta be something you could do to help her.

Michael: You know there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for phyllis. And if she’s really alive, you have no idea how happy I will be. But the cold truth is, I am representing diane and it would be a conflict of interest for me to try to fix things for phyllis. I’m not even sure that I could spin her story that– so that she doesn’t come off… not so great. But everything is a long shot without evidence.

Jack: Look, I’m gonna call christine just to test the waters off the record, throw out a few hypotheticals, see what kind of response I get.

Michael: Jack–

Jack: And I have to tell dianE.

Michael: Jack! Just please hold off on that. We don’t know where phyllis is or how to find her, or even if she would come back with us once we did. No, there are just– just too many variables. We can’t tell anyone about this. We have to be very careful and take it a step at a time.

Jack: Oh, god…

Next week on “the young and the restless.”

Nate: We’re helping each other, right? We have to trust each other to get exactly what we want. And I know exactly what you want.

Chelsea: What’s going on?

Daniel: Oh, you know, just waiting for some bombs to explode.

Jack: I don’t even know what we’re looking for, but I guarantee you we will know it when we see it.
