Lauren: You saw Phyllis? Oh, my god. How– how was she? How did she seem?

Michael: Oh, you know, same old phyllis. She was wearing a trench coat and dark glasses to avoid being recognized.

Lauren: I would’ve given anything to see her. Oh, my god. It must have been just so surreal.

Michael: Well, that’s one word for it. Behold, behold.

Lauren: What?

Michael: What your best pal walked in on, not to mention, myself, barely clothed.

[ Lauren laughing ]

Lauren: This is so romantic. The candles, the flowers, and ooh, look at this. My favorite champagne. You put a lot of effort into this.

Michael: You are so worth it.

Lauren: Ah, and then phyllis crashes this?

Michael: Yeah. Where she wiped out an entire platter of chocolate-covered strawberries.

[ Lauren chuckling ] Uh, well, you must get an appetite running away from the law.


Lauren: But she has to be terrified to come all the way back here and then wind up in a cell.

Michael: Well, she is, but her only other option is equally grim.

Lauren: Right. Looking over her shoulder, the rest of her life is no choice.

Michael: Or she could put her faith in me, which seems a no-brainer.

Lauren: Honey, she’s scared.

Michael: As well she should be. Do you know what she told me? “Let me think about it.” Before she ate the last strawberry and vamoosed. Now, all I can do is, wait. Wait!

Damn it.

Just not according to your plan.

You didn’t kill him, did you? Is he all right? Of course I didn’t kill him, but since he’s already broken free from your control once I had to administer an especially intense regimen, so you can rest Assured Commander Michaels will be doing only your bidding from now on. Are you sure that he’s ready for the job that I need him to do tonight?

Don’t you worry, this will be your brother Stefan’s last night on earth.

Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Well, I am so glad that I ran into you both. Nice to meet you, and that I could extend the invitation. Oh. Like I said, it’ll be a little weird for me to be there since it’s almost Gabby’s sister-in-law, but I am really happy for her and for Stephan, so I’m glad that we can celebrate their engagement. Yeah.

Yeah, me too. Great. Very generous of you both. And it means a lot to my mother. She’s trying to do something nice for them, but, uh, well, to be honest with you, the attendance on the Demer side is looking a little thin. Well, we’ll help with that. The more the merrier. Right.

You’ll find out soon enough.

Ah. Thank you.

I hope you’re not planning on spending the evening drinking all night. That’s the current plan. Unless you can finagle me an invitation to the party or a press pass at least. I’m sorry, my darling lady whistleblower is just going to have to have the night off. Dimitri’s hoping for a very romantic evening and I don’t want you spoiling it.

Me spoil a good time. Never. I’m constitutionally incapable. No. Yes. I used to think that, but now I think you are constitutionally incapable of trusting anyone, giving anyone the benefit of the doubt. Oh, right. How disappointing that I don’t trust a guy who meets you beds, you and wants to put a ring on it in 24 hours.

Come on, Gwenny. Even I don’t move that fast. Okay, Matty, I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but the past few months we’ve been commiserating. Have we not been losers in love and now my Prince charming has literally fallen into my lap while you are still a loser. No. I never said that. Oh, that’s what you meant.

No, it’s not. I’m just, I’m saying that while I’ve had this wonderful bit of luck, I know that you haven’t, and I’m wondering if perhaps you’re just a wee bit jealous.

Gwen Ek. Yikes. Scraping the bottom of the barrel. Are he? Oh, Chad Damara is gonna be there. Look at that. Well, at least a few Damara will be in attendance, huh? Yeah. Well, wife’s the only one from my side that’s coming and he’s so busy working Abe car’s space. He said he, he’s only gonna be able to stop by.

This probably gonna suck. No. Impossible. Yes. You’re gonna be there. I’m gonna be there. And I plan on having a grand old time celebrating us. Our love and the fact that you and I are suing the husband and wife again. You’re right. No, you’re right. Yes. Us being there together, that’s all that matters. That’s right.

No offense, but Nicole’s the least of our problems at this moment. Oh my God. I am starving. I’m starting to contemplate cannibalism. Well, I suppose that is the demure way. I can’t believe my sister did this to me.

Oh, and you, of course. I cannot think how this is gonna end. Okay, Emma, Kristen, don’t go there again. How can I not, how can I not? There’s no reason for her to keep us alive, is there.

He hardly looks like a man prepared to carry out an assassination. Later tonight. The procedure was taxing, but I’m confident. Commander Michaels, who will be ready. He better be father would roll over in his grave if Stephan handed his entire legacy to that conniving. Gabby Hernandez. Demira should be mine.

There’s only one fly in the ointment. Well, two actually. DJ and Kristen. I can hardly take out the entire family, but if I let them go, they’ll turn me into the authorities and they’ll ruin everything that I’ve planned. Don’t you have faith in me by now, Megan?

I know how to ensure that won’t happen.

Why on earth would I be jealous? Just because you’re being wooed and proposed to by a rich, gorgeous guy with a magic penis. Oh God sake, Matthew, we really going there again. You never denied he had one. That’s because you made a very stupid lewd joke, which I was trying to forget about, but since you won’t drop it, yes, Dimitri and I are quite compatible physically.

And also he has a magic penis. Oh God. Can you just stay on topic please? What was the topic again that you are for no apparent reason. Quite jealous and still very suspicious of Dimitri even though we have obviously ruled out that it’s not money or reputation laundering or, or he’s not marrying me for a green card.

So what are his ulterior motives? I mean, what other possible option is there? Health insurance. He’s from Europe. Health insurance is free, really, even for Botox and fillers. I’m pretty sure that you have to pay for that everywhere. But look, just consider this, will you? It could be quite simple for Dimitri that perhaps it was just not at first sight.

Hmm. I mean, you know that’s possible, don’t you? Even for friends. I knew that when I first saw you, I loved you and that I always would, fuck. I just made my heart go pitter powder. Yes. Well, I meant it.

Okay. Maybe you’re right. Uh, come again. Sorry. Do, do my ears deceive me. Did I actually just hear you say that I am right? No, I said maybe. And maybe I am a teensy bit jealous that you have found your prince charming, as you say, whereas nobody’s even flirted with me in the last millennium. Oh, come on.

That’s not true. And that’s how it feels. But petty jealousy aside, Lord, I am still certain that magic penis guy is up to something. Ah.

You’re right, of course. The more the merrier. See you at the bistro. Yes. Yes, we will. It should be a great celebration.

You know, I, I was surprised that, that we even wanted to go to the party. Well, Gabby is the closest thing I’ve ever had to a sister, and I don’t think she holds what happened between her and my brother against me, or even against him. I just, I think, I hope that she understands that Lee kind of lost his mind when Stephan came back.

Yeah. He knew he was gonna lose Gabby. Right. And so he did a lot of things. He regrets now. I mean, he was just trying so hard to hold onto her because he loved her so much.

Now I’m really glad he’s finally come to his senses and realized he has to move on.

Hey, you two. Hi. Hi. Hi. It’s good to see you. Hello. Overdressed for the pub though, aren’t you? Oh, no, we’re not. Uh, we’re not having dinner here tonight. We just wanted to stop by and see how you’re doing. Me too. Hey. I know you guys are close. I know, I, the, the whole thing is so terrible. I just, I mean, I still can’t believe it, you know, I just haven’t processed it really?

Yeah, we haven’t either. It’s just so awful and sad. Feels kind of wrong to be going to a party. Yeah. So Stefan and Gabby’s engagement party, I didn’t want to go, but, uh, you know, my sister Megan, she can be. Consistent. Megan, you know, I still don’t know why Megan was so Help Ben on throwing us this party.

Who cares? Party’s a party. True. I guess we could give her the benefit of the doubt. Assume she means well, I think she is capable of that as long as she’s not being a power hungry bitch on wheels. Right. Well, I guess I should get ready. Uh, you know, actually, I do need some help getting into my dress. Yeah.

Yeah. Mm-hmm. I’m your man.

Nicole, look at me. Look at me. Everything is gonna be okay. You’re not gonna lose this baby. You don’t know that Eric, Nicole, look, the, the cramps, they’re coming in less frequently. You’re not spotting, are you? All right, then well listen. You heard what the OB said. She said the most important thing for you and your baby’s health is just to try and relax.

Well, I can’t relax. I’ve been down this road too many times. This is nothing like what’s happened in the past. The cramps are coming in less frequently. You’re not spotting what? What is with that look? It’s just that you’re being so kind and and caring, and this isn’t even your baby. And after what happened with Jada, Eric, I, Hey, hey, hey, stop.

Listen to me. Don’t you know by now I care about you. Even with all the ups and downs that we’ve been through, I’m not going anywhere. Okay. I’m sorry that ejs not here for you right now, but I am.

I’m all for finding a way out of here, but it feels like we’ve tried everything. Got any new ideas? Well, if I had Susan’s teeth, I could knock through these ropes. Look. I don’t think we’re in imminent danger. If Megan wanted to kill us, she would’ve done it already. Well, maybe she is just waiting for the right time.

She has no qualms about killing Stephan. Why not us two?

CRS 17. Who’s a rescue? Oh, Ralph, you’re a genius. If Kristen and EJ can’t remember that I kidnapped them or admitted that I planned to kill Stephan, then I am free and clear. Can you make them forget that? And only that I’ve gotten a lot of practice with this drug in recent years. How much they forget is dosage dependent.

We should be able to wake out the last week or two with very little problem. Excellent. So I have a little bit of time before the party if you hand me that dose. I’ll take care of them on my way.

Now that is something to celebrate.

See you there, commander. You better not let me down this time.

Eric, I, I, I appreciate you being here for me, but it is a lot to ask. You didn’t ask. I still, I just, I, I just feel like, like, like what? Like I don’t deserve to be comforted. Like I’m being punished. Nicole, stop it. There’s a lot of things about my faith that I question. That’s not one of them. God doesn’t punish people by scaring ’em this way.

That’s not how it works.

Look, I’m gonna go see what’s keeping the dog there. All right? So I just want you to relax. I’ll be right back.


don’t wait up. Okay. Gwynnie promise me this, if dreamy Dimitri pressures you to accept his proposal tonight, you will at least call me first. Why, so you can talk me out a bit? No. So you can see if I dug anything up. Oh God. Matty, please. Can you just give it a rest? I mean, whatcha are you gonna find in three hours anyway?

Are you kidding me? The next three hours are perfect for finding things out. All the de mirrors will be out tonight. It is the ideal time for me to swing by the mansion, nose around a bit, look for clues. Who knows? I may even get a story out of it. Oh yeah, you’ll definitely find clues. That place is murder mayhem central.

But if you are looking for dimitri’s ulterior motive, it doesn’t matter how hard you look. Because there isn’t one We’ll see about that. I can’t possibly suck in any more than this. No, that’s, that’s not the problem. I just can’t get it up. Well, I beg to differ. I, I’m talking about the zipper. Right? And you know what, maybe, maybe this is a sign.

A sign meaning, meaning that, uh, maybe instead of. Putting clothes on. You should be taking clothes off. I like the way things, yeah,

don’t worry about Kate. I’ll take care of her next. I just wanna make certain, none of this will be traced back to us, but stop worrying. Lee. Commander Michaels is firmly back on my team. So he’ll take Stefan out at the party tonight and then you’ll be free to move on with Gabby and we’ll both get what we want.

Pleasure doing business with you.

Hey This’s, your uh, brother. Hey Lee. Hey, I see Case you never dress up. Oh, we got a last minute invite to a party, not Gabby and Stephan’s engagement party. Well, yes, as a matter of fact, no, I I don’t want you to go.

Wait, what did, what did you just say about Megan? Just that she insisted that, um, that we go to that, uh, a party. And I, I still hate her for what she did do. In fact, out of all the people that are gonna be there, I hate 90% of them, but 90% of the time. Okay. Yeah. I just, when exactly did she, um, send that invitation?

Oh, a little while ago. Why is something wrong, wrong? No, no. I, I just tried to avoid her at all costs. Well, then I’d stay away from the bistro for the next few hours cause she’s hosting. If you want, we can give her your fondest regards. Hmm.

Don’t look at me like that father. I’m only doing what’s best for the entire family. And as for Stephan, you never even knew he existed. And honestly, I don’t think you would’ve liked him very much. Oh, he’s so easily manipulated by that woman. Very weak. No, I don’t think you’ll be shedding any tears over this.

Whatever you are,

mother, what are you doing?

Kate, are you sure? You’re all right? No, I’m fine. I’m fine. I just, uh, I just despise the woman, you know, not to mention her son. They deviance both of them. I’m really sorry for what they put you through. Hello? It’s all over now. Nice to you. In fact, I wouldn’t be here now if it wasn’t for you. I’m damn grateful You are.

Okay. Uter, you have a party to go to, right? Yeah. We should go. Mm-hmm. Yeah. Sooner we get there the sooner we can leave. Mm-hmm. Right. We’ll have fun, okay? Okay. It’s gonna be lit. No, you take care, Kate. Yeah, you too.

Finally changed your ringtone, huh? Yeah. What You’re not gonna answer. It is just spam. Probably someone wanting to offer me an extended auto warranty. Yeah, dude, I, I get those all the time. Right. Well, you were just about to tell us why don’t you want us to go to the party? What I should think it’d be obvious, Stephan humiliating me of me to be brutally honest.

It’s very embarrassing,

but if you really want to go, I know you’re very fond of Gabby, so Yeah, we are. Just promise me that you’ll watch your back. You never know what can happen in a room full of Demaris. No offense not taken. I know exactly what you mean.

Mm-hmm. Thank you. Stuck zipper. Thank you. But you know, we better get, move on or we’re gonna be late to a party. Or maybe, and I’m just spit balling here. Maybe we don’t go, you know, everybody else is sent along their regrets. Maybe we should do the same.

Oh, I was just going down to get a few bottles of Christophe for the party tonight, huh? Well, it’d also been up to, I’ve texted about a dozen times. I know, sweetheart, I’m sorry. I’ve just been so busy planning everything for the party. There’s so many little details, but tell me. Has she accepted your proposal?

No, not yet. Only because we have been rudely interrupted by her Weasley, overprotective little roommate. Damn it. She needs to accept that proposal. Yes, I know mother, but she has agreed to come to the party tonight and I’m sure that all of this engagement, excitement will be contagious. I am very confident that I’ll be able to persuade her to accept this evening.

You’d better be confident. I’m sure I don’t need to remind you about the small fortune that’s ATS stake. Mother, you really don’t.

I’ll see you there tonight. Can’t wait.


well, uh, the doctor said that the baby’s fine. That’s great. So what caused the cramps? Uh, something called round ligament pain. I, I don’t know, I, I’ve never heard of it before, but apparently it’s normal, so I, I just need to take it easy. Stay hydrated, and now I just, You like an idiot, Nicole, you’re not an idiot.

Oh God. God, of course you panicked. You’ve had a rough history with things like this in the past. Just I’m relieved that the baby’s okay.

You and me both. I’m sure you’re just gonna feel the same way when he gets back from wherever he’s

well. I’d be an idiot if I wasn’t a little worried about what made my do to us since she’s already done this, but I’m much more worried about what she might have already done to Stephan. Relax. I haven’t done anything to Stephan, thank God. But now that I have all my duckies in a row, He’ll be dead within the hour.

Please look at you would’ve been a crappy idea to skip our engagement party. Uh, you’re right. I mean, yeah. This is the best of both worlds. We get to sip on some champagne, those yummy puff pastries, hang out with, uh, all these people that we love, fawning all over us, pretending to like us, and then we get to go home and spend the rest of the night in bed together.

Oh, I love that last part. Me too. Definitely. Hello? Oh, hello Lee. I just, uh, ran into my sister and she said she’s on her way to your engagement party. I’d like to offer my congratulations. Thank you, Lee. That’s very kind of you. Well, I just want Gabby to be happy. I want the same for you, Lee. You all right?

Apart from the obvious weirdness seem a little edgy. Who, uh, me? No, not, not at all. I just hope that your evening is every bit as lovely as you deserve it to be.

I just heard Megan throwing a party tonight. How is that possible? You said she was taken care of. Now I’m not sure what’s going on, so I guess I’m going to my own eyes.

Hope you don’t get caught in a crossfire, Kate.

What do you mean? Stephan will be dead within the hour? Exactly what I said. I am throwing an engagement party for Stephan and Gabby tonight, and this is the exciting part. Dr. Rolfe has worked his magic on my man. Commander Harris. Michaels. Wait. Dr. Rolls is back. Oh, keep up. Ej. Yes, he’s back. And so tonight, commander Michaels Navy Seal and MAL trained assassin is gonna do the deed and kill Stephan in front of all of his friends and family gathered, except for you two Of course.

Oh, Kristen, you’re such a drama queen. No, of course not. I’m not gonna kill the two of you. I don’t think father would be very happy about that. Megan, listen. Listen, if you, if you let us go, we swear, sorry, that we will not implicate. You will say nothing about any of this, right? And your word is your bond, isn’t it?

What the hell is that? CRS 17. Ring any bells? Ralph tried to inject your son with it in Jakarta to raise his memory. Good boy, you do remember, but you won’t soon. Now, don’t worry. As soon as this drug takes full effect, I’ll be back for you. Okay? So listen. Let’s just try and make this as quick and easy as possible.


I’m in the mansion. I walked right in through an unlocked door. Apparently Damira security is at Mar-a-Lago levels. Probably shouldn’t print that for the world to see. Dateline 6:00 PM I couldn’t overhear the conversation between Count Dracula and his creepy mother, but given how shocked Megan was when I came through at the tunnels the other day, I am certain they’re hiding something down there.

And I will bet whatever it is, will shed some light on how those two are conspiring to screw over. My best friend.

Hey. Hey, uncle Chad. Oh my God, thank God. Actually, would you, Mike? Yeah. Family member. I actually know. And Blake? Yeah. Back at you. Uh, do you guys know Wendy? Oh, we haven’t met yet, but I have heard a lot about you from trip. Oh. Oh, don’t worry. It’s all good. Um, in fact, what, um, he mentioned that you two might be dating, but nevermind obviously, um, given that you two are on a date right now, I shouldn’t have said No, no, no, no.

It’s okay. Uh, actually trip and I. We did have a date earlier today, so we’re, we’re calling, uh, just to be, we’re calling this a date, no? Yep. Uh, none of our business. Um, Wendy, Johnny, I hope you have a fun night. Yeah. Good evening everyone. Have you all met Gwen Rizek? Yeah, we’ve met. Not only is she my beautiful date for the evening, but I’m also hoping that tonight she might do me the honor of accepting my wedding proposal.

No, sorry, what? Did you guys know each other from Europe? No, actually we didn’t, Tim. Well, Yes, it is true Gwen and I just recently met, but, uh, we both agree that we share a very deep connection on, on many levels and hope that you all can be happy for us. I guess not. Mm-hmm. It’s all right, Dimitri. We don’t need anyone’s approval, do we?

Oh, good. Because, um, we’re not gonna get it from me.

Look, everyone, for people who hate us and each other there, you see, I told you we should have stayed home. Hmm.

Ah, command Michaels. You’re back, sir. What’s going on? You have a very important mission to carry out. Do you remember what.

Oh my goodness. I’m over here. Right here. Okay. Sit down. Thank you. Yeah. And comfy? Yes. All right. Um. I’m gonna get you some water or some, would you like some soup, baby? Don’t go

listen, I, I just wanna say I know it, it must have been difficult for you to be in the hospital with me and I just want you to know it means a lot. I’m just glad I could be there for you. Not as glad as I am.

Damn it should. I’m slipping away by now. My, my memories. I’m trying, but I can’t do it. I can’t hold me neither. Oh my God. How, how, how do we help Stephan now? Oh,

OMG guys. Wtf.

Oh. Cue face, Megan. Hello Kate. Lovely to see you. Do I smell fish? I can’t believe it. Sorry. I’d love to stay in chat, but I’m late for a very important date. Mission accomplished my ass.

How’s it going? It is, as I said, it would be. Commander Michaels is like a heat seeking missile singularly focused on destroying his target, but only the target. My sister at that party press assured my boy Michaels is programmed only to harm. Stephan

keep thinking though, won’t everyone suspect Megan immediately? I mean, she brainwashed Michaels before, so yes, I took care of that. I just hope you didn’t let him go before he was fully ready. Remember the disaster was Stephan. Rest assured my boy. My work may be experimental in nature, but the procedure is complete when you will be a happy beneficiary.

Yes, yes. Steph will be gone. Gabby will be mine again, and this time my hands will be completely clean. Hey, where is the host? I mean, people are starting to get a little restless honored. Guests welcome now. Please accept my apologies for the delay in order to make this a really special night tonight. I had to bring a bottle of my father’s very favorite champagne.

Just took me a little longer to get it than I expected, but I’m here now and I’m so glad that you are all here too, because there is nothing in this world more important than family is there. I am so grateful. But you have all welcomed me back into your bosom,

and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to host this lovely gathering for my newfound brother and his gorgeous bride to be. And I just know that father is smiling down on us now. Happy to see us all together again. Whoa. At least most of us. Yeah, very few of us. And yes, I know that we have our differences, but we overcome them, don’t we?

That’s what families do. Well, normal families like yours. My sister Megan, she’s an assassin. Thomas Banks had to kill us, so all those things are a little bit hard to overcome. Mm-hmm. I am so sorry for all of the lost years that we could have spent together, but I look forward to the many, many happy years to come.

And now I want everyone to grab a glass of champagne so we can toast the happy couple, the lovely Gabriela and my charming brother Stephan. Oh my God. Paris Michaels. What the hell are you doing here?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Summer: Good, you’re here already. My mom texted me. She said that she saw you.

Michael: Yes, um, you want some breakfast? My treat.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: No, thank you. I just want to hear about my mom, I mean, what happened? Where is she? What is she going to do?

Michael: Uh, if you don’t mind, I’m going to take those one at a time. Um, as to what happened, I was expecting lauren for a romantic rendezvous and, uh, phyllis knocked on the door instead.

Summer: How did she look? Is she okay?

Michael: She’s stressed. She’s tired from being on the run. She’s very concerned about you.

Summer: Okay, but what– what happened? What did– what did she say?

Michael: We had a very productive talk about her options. She ate all the chocolate covered strawberries and then she left.

Summer: That’s it? She didn’t say where she’s been hiding or where we could find her?

Michael: I’m sorry, she did not.

Summer: But in her text, she said that she might have found a way out of this mess. I mean, is that true? Could she come home soon?

[ Knocking on door ]

Sharon: Who’s there?

Nick: It’s nick. Morning.

Sharon: New job, delivery man?

Nick: Oh, yeah, nick’s courier service. On time or we keep it.

[ Sharon laughing ]

Sharon: Like it. How’s your first day on leave?

Nick: Not great, not loving it, but what choice do I have?

Sharon: Well, you want some coffee? Although, you seem a little amped up already.

Nick: Yeah, I’m just trying to figure out what I’m gonna do with the rest of my day. You know, I can deliver you this, which was left for you at the gate.

Sharon: Um, I’m sure that’s just my shampoo, you should set it right there. Actually, I do need some help this morning with this. I just don’t have the skills, and you were always so good at this.

Nick: Happy to be of service.

[ Sharon chuckling ] All right.

Jack: You’re thinking what I am? That what happened yesterday should never have happened? Ultomiris is for adults with generalized myasthenia gravis

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… with a smooth clean shave,

Nick: Thank you.

Sharon: Mm-hmm.

Nick: You know, I always did love that necklace.

Sharon: Well, you gave it to me a million years ago.

Nick: Well, I have excellent taste.

Sharon: You do. You know, you didn’t have to come here and check on me. Which I know is the reason why you’re here. I’m fine. Just like I was last night when we spoke on the phone.

Nick: Well, you did that thing where you politely blow me off because you don’t want me to worry about you, so I figured the best thing I can do is just crash your place and eyeball you and see how you’re doing. So, how are you?

Sharon: Um, it’s a little intense sometimes. Little noises or flashes of light just send me right back into the nightmare.

[ Sharon sighing ] Cameron kidnapped faith. He wanted to kill us. And then I remember to breathe and relax and everything’s okay. We’re okay, it’s over. Have you talked to faith?

Nick: Yeah, she was my first phone call this morning. Uh, she sounds good, you know? She’s happy to be back with her friends. She sounds strong. Wish my other daughter was just as great. I–

Sharon: What’s going on with summer?

Nick: Have you heard that phyllis is alive and on the run?

Sharon: Yes, I have heard that.

Nick: Well, not surprisingly, she has dragged summer into her drama and now it’s blowing up her marriage.

Sharon: Phyllis is a firestorm. Anybody who tries to stop her or tries to help her ends up getting burned, and far too often it is someone she loves. But I’m glad that summer has you.

Nick: Yeah, I have lots of time to worry about her and sally and you and faith now.

Sharon: So, this leave of absence?

Nick: All victoria. I told her it wasn’t necessary, but she insisted.

Sharon: For how long?

Nick: Seems indefinite.

Sharon: Okay, well, being that it’s your sister, I have to assume that she’s just concerned about you and everything that you’ve been dealing with.

Nick: I have a feeling her concern isn’t very sisterly.

Sharon: Well, you can always come back to work at the coffee house.

[ Both laughing ] No one was ever as good as you are at refilling those sugar dispensers.

Nick: Oh, that is a tempting offer.

Sharon: And I’ll throw in all the free coffee you can drink.

Nick: Okay.

Sharon: You know what? I have to get to work.

Nick: Yeah.

[ Sharon grunting ]

Sharon: Hey. This isn’t my shampoo. This is from an out-of-state law firm. That doesn’t sound good.

Kyle: Which part shouldn’t have happened?

Jack: The division of this family. Traci had to stage an intervention to stop immediate warfare. I don’t know how successful she was. I think at best we have a temporary detente.

Kyle: Well, détentes are overrated.

Jack: Kyle, I understand your pain. That phyllis would use her daughter to help her out of this mess of her own making. That she would force summer to choose between her husband and her mother. It’s just more damage to this family courtesy of that woman and her hatred.

Kyle: Summer was no victim. She was right in step with her mother. She chose phyllis over and over. Saw my mother get charged with murder, saw us in pain, still, she did nothing.

Jack: Summer made a mistake.

Kyle: It wasn’t that long ago that she was furious at me because I lied to her about working with victor to get adam out of jabot.

Jack: Yeah, that I remember quite well.

Kyle: She was furious. I lied. She could barely get past the fact that I have violated our trust, and I own that mistake, but now she has done exactly the same thing, lying on top of lying. See, this time, it wasn’t about a job at a company. It was about my mother’s life. Her entire future.

Jack: And she wants to make amends now.

Kyle: How? She let me believe she was grieving her mother. Let my mom face the possibility of life in prison. Let me tie myself in knots trying to support my mother. I was desperate to help summer. Desperate. And she shut me out. Disregarded my love, disregarded my feelings for her and my mother.

Jack: There’s no doubt about it, she was wrong, but are you so hurt that you won’t get past what has happened?

Kyle: It is not about hurt. I don’t know who she is anymore. Or maybe I’m just finally seeing she really is her mother’s daughter. Summer did whatever she needed to get what she wanted. Knowing she’s capable of that and so easily, I don’t see how I can trust her again.

Jack: But don’t you think that’s a little harsh?

Kyle: Summer and i are separating dad. I told her to move out.

Michael: Your mother’s future is still pretty much up in the air. And more than a lot of it depends on phyllis.

Summer: You’re gonna help her, right?

Michael: Of course I will. I’m committed to bringing phyllis back. She has that special type of mayhem we all need in our life. But your mother is a stubborn woman. Even with the odds against her, she insists that things play out on her terms. And that is just something I can’t promise.

Summer: And that’s why she didn’t stick around?

Michael: It’s not like I didn’t try. I begged her to turn herself in. I ran up and down the list of reasons why it’d be the least stupid thing she could do. I told her we love her, we miss her. We’re ready to fight for her.

Summer: And she still refused.

Michael: She’s afraid. Christine is at the end of all this. Phyllis is convinced that christine will hit her with every charge in the book and even a few extra just for kicks. The only commitment I could get from your mom is that she would think about it and examine her options.

Summer: Even if there are legal consequences, I mean, it’s got to be better than all of this craziness. The uncertainty.

Michael: I would like this all to be over so I could see you smile again.

Summer: As much as I love my mom and I want her to come home… I– I– I still can’t believe that she did this to us. To me, I mean, even if we figure out all of her problems, there’s still going to be collateral damage.

Michael: What, uh, specific collateral damage are we talking about?

Summer: I might need a lawyer myself. (Wheezing)

Sharon: “Dear miss newman, this letter is to inform you that I represent the estate of cameron kirsten. Per his instructions, I’ve been authorized to forward you the items included in this box in the event of his death.”

Jack: You and summer are separating? I am so sorry it has come to that.

Kyle: I don’t see any other way.

Jack: When we saw you last night, you said you realized that staying away wasn’t going to fix anything. I assumed, I hoped, that that was leading toward healing.

Kyle: There was no hope in that decision. It was resignation. Why put off the inevitable?

Jack: Kyle, is this really what you want? You’re ready to give up on your marriage?

Kyle: Summer chose to do that when she decided to betray everything I thought we had and– and so damn easily. Who knows? Maybe if she hadn’t gotten caught, she would still be lying to me.

Jack: Oh, you’re in pain. And it’s deep and there are no easy remedies, but I’m sure you’re also aware there has been a lot of forgiveness in this house recently for crimes far more serious than summer’S.

Kyle: I guess I’m not as forgiving as you are.

Jack: I don’t believe that. I believe you are forgiving. You forgave your mother. I did too.

Kyle: Not the same. When I see summer, I see someone who didn’t love me enough to be honest. She took me and everything we had for granted. She blew all of our trust to hell. How do you love without that? How is there ever any coming back from what she’s done?

Michael: I would never turn you away if you needed help, summer, but I’m not sure why you would need legal representation.

Summer: Uh, I haven’t been completely upfront with you.

Michael: Oh.

[ Summer sighing ] My morning was going so well. What did you do?

Summer: Mom reached out to me first, not daniel.

Michael: What?

Summer: And he covered for me. And I was keeping her– her secret, unlike him. And when I found out that he was telling everyone, I was furious. So, when she revealed where she was hiding…

Michael: You said nothing.

Summer: Yeah. I brought her food and clothes. I tried to help her figure everything out and I don’t know how many laws I broke. I mean, aiding and abetting a fugitive, obstruction of justice. Uh, how much time can you get for them?

Michael: All right, all right you’re getting ahead of yourself.

Summer: Am I? Because chance told me that christine was just waiting to find my mom before she brought charges against me, so it kind of seems like it’s going to happen.

Michael: You spoke to chance about possible charges against you?

Summer: As a friend.

Michael: Uh, when your mother is on the run for serious crimes and you’ve aided and abetted her. Never, ever, ever talk to policemen as a friend. Can– can we agree on that before moving forward?

Summer: Yeah.

Michael: Is there any more of that collateral damage you mentioned?

Summer: Uh, my husband hates me.

Michael: Kyle could never hate you. He loves you.

Summer: I was protecting my mom while his mom sat in prison. I mean, I– I lied to him for weeks. And I hated it so much. Even when I wasn’t lying, I was pushing him away and now, he can’t even look at me so… I might also need a divorce attorney.

Michael: No. It’s too soon. You’re young, you’re in love, you have a child. Kyle will come around.

Summer: Michael, he already said that he wants a separation. He asked me to move out. Does it sound like he’s getting ready to forgive me?

Michael: Look, you just have to give kyle some time. You know, this has been rough for everybody.

Audra: If you’re thinking about making, you know, a smooth escape, look, I get it. No pressure from my end.

Kyle: I don’t wanna go home.

Audra: Excuse me?

The long-lasting scent

of gain flings

Audra: I’m sorry about the intrusion. I’m–

Summer: Audra charles. Yes, she was the one that broke noah’s heart a while ago.

Audra: But luckily, we both moved on. I hope he and allie are very happy back in london. And you are michael baldwin. Quite a phenom in this town. Attorney extraordinaire.

[ Michael laughing ]

Michael: It depends on who you talk to. But I also know of you from my dealings with newman enterprises. Victor’s acquisition of mccall unlimited.

Audra: That’s right. Small world.

Michael: Yeah.

Summer: I haven’t seen you since, um, the gala.

Audra: That’s right. It was such a terrible night. You know, I was there when your mother collapsed. To later learn that she died. Look, I can’t imagine the grief that you were going through, but how wonderful that she’s actually alive. Apparently somewhere. You must feel like you’re on a roller coaster. You know, but thank god you have your husband and his family to support you.

Summer: Is there something that you want?

Jack: Kyle, I know you’re angry and you have every right to be, but I honestly believe that your love for summer is much stronger than what you’re feeling right now. Listen, kyle, I know this from experience. Anger is a very potent emotion. It can blind you. It can fuel you to make decisions you’ll come to regret. All I’m suggesting is that you not act this second. Just give it some time for the anger to dissipate, and you can reevaluate.

Kyle: I have thought this through, dad. This decision is not based off of emotion. It is based off of fact.

Jack: The reality is this is a–

Kyle: Oh, no, no, no. The reality is my wife has proven she will always, always side with her mother against mine and me. That is a fact. And phyllis will be back in our lives soon. Whispering into summer’s ear, also a fact. So tell me, dad. How does my already broken marriage survive that chaos?

Sharon: This cannot be happening. This is just like before. Random packages being delivered here, at the coffee house just to freak me out.

Nick: We’re not playing cameron’s games anymore. Sharon, he’s dead. Let’s get rid of it. I’ll throw it out right now. We can burn it if you want.

Sharon: Wait, no. We should go through it first.

Nick: Why? It’s just gonna drag up memories that we’re trying to forget.

Sharon: Believe me, no one is more creeped out by this than me. But, no matter what is in that box, cameron can’t hurt us anymore.

If you, like many people,

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Nick: Seems like cameron was into journaling all his teenage angst. Uh, here’s a good one. “I’m going to be somebody, not like these losers. I’m going to be rich. Super rich. So rich no one can stop me and I’m going to marry the most beautiful woman in the world. Leave all these suckers behind.” I mean, the kid had goals.

Sharon: Let’s see what’s in here. Hmm. Frankie.

Nick: Okay.

Sharon: Oh, and this must be…

Nick: The dog’s ashes.

[ Clicks tongue ] Wow. I never pegged cameron to be a dog lover.

Sharon: Yeah. Me neither. Wow. So much for the family photo with his parents.

Nick: With faces ripped out. Guessing they were pretty close.

Sharon: And there’s frankie, I think.

Nick: Yeah. Something else in here what’s this? What do you think this is doing in here?

Sharon: It’s clearly paperwork for cameron’s company, kirsten incorporated. Oh, my gosh. Cameron’s entire business has been signed over to me.

Nick: What?

Jack: Kyle, there are no easy answers.

Kyle: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let me spell it out for you. Phyllis will swoop back into town. Michael will do his thing. She will face minimal charges and go back to upending everyone’s life because that’s who she is. She will not be repentant. She will still hate my mother and she has a tidal pull on summer. I refuse to be a part of that circus, and I will not let my son be a part of it as well.

Jack: Yeah, I’ve been concerned about how this all affects harrison, too. There’s been too much anger and upset in this house for too long.

Kyle: Yeah, and too much has been generated by my wife. Dad, I– I remember. I remember, right there, when I approached summer about telling harrison that phyllis had died and she refused. She came up with all kinds of excuses and I felt sorry for her. What an idiot I was. Of course she knew phyllis was alive. Dad, and she was willing to put harrison right in the middle of her damn drama.

Jack: For what it’s worth, kyle, I honestly think summer is remorseful

Kyle: Please, the tears. The desperation to talk, to apologize, and she’s suddenly all about our great love. As if she didn’t treat me like the enemy for weeks! Blame me for not giving her the space she needed! All so she could keep phyllis’s dirty little secret. Oh, the entire time, the entire time I was trying to help her. Be there for her. Comfort her. She was sacrificing my mother to protect hers.

Jack: And diane has forgiven summer.

Kyle: How forgiving do you think mom will be towards phyllis? No matter how resigned she seems about doing nothing and letting phyllis’s karma come back and bite her? When those two come face to face again, all bets are off. Yeah, dad, look at what she just pulled with me. Lying about harrison? If she’s willing to play me like that, how far is she willing to go to make phyllis pay for trying to destroy her life? You cannot tell me you’re not a little worried about that.

Jack: I will allow that that could become an issue.

Kyle: Oh, it is already a giant issue, dad. As much as traci wants peace in this house, I see nothing but trouble ahead, especially for me and summer. I will do everything I can to protect my son. That is why my mind is made up. That is why summer and i are separating.

Audra: I apologize again for the interruption. I just wanted to offer my condolences if your mother really is gone.

Summer: Thanks.

Audra it was nice to see you again. And nice to officially meet you.

Michael: Same here.

[ Michael laughing ] Something tells me that that one is a real piece of work.

Summer: You wouldn’t be wrong. Is it just me, or when it comes to my mom, does everyone in this town want information or have an opinion?

Michael: Well, the phyllis trauma has sparked morbid curiosity from more than a few corners.

Summer: The worst part about it is whether she decides to come home or stay away, it’s just gonna get worse. When migraine strikes, you’re faced with a choice.

Nick: Cameron left you his company? This cannot be legit. It’s got to be another one of his crazy games.

Sharon: Well, nothing he does surprises me. Check the date, it’s from last year.

Nick: Which means he put all this in motion just in case his plan failed or he died. It’s an amazing way to keep toying with you from beyond the grave.

Sharon: Yeah, well, in some twisted way, I guess it makes sense, but it looks like it’s real. His attorney wants me to contact him to finalize transfer of ownership.

Nick: Well, if it’s bogus, it’ll be easy to figure out, but it does sort of prove his sick devotion to you. He always said that you were the love of his life. What better way to stay united with you even after his death than to leave you with this company?

[ Sharon sighing ]

Sharon: As if I would want anything from that horrible man, dead or alive. It’s like taking blood money.

Nick: I’m with you on that. Plus, he was in and out of prison for years. I mean, this company’s got to be in ruins.

Sharon: I don’t care if it’s worth a fortune. I am done with cameron and his manipulations. As far as I’m concerned, this is garbage.

Kyle: Hi.

Mariah: Hey, sunshine. I take that back. Maybe the forecast is cloudy with a bit of summer being a bitch?

Kyle: Turns out you were right.

Mariah: God, I really do love to hear that, but you look so miserable. It’s making me feel sorry about that. What’s going on?

Kyle: I’d rather talk about you.

Mariah: Uh, coffee and pastries for tessa, aria is next level cute. That’s me. Now back to you. Talk to me.

Kyle: All right. After I saw you, I took chance to a room at the athletic club where phyllis was hiding out, and of course, summer warned her and she was long gone.

Mariah: Do you have any idea where she is?

Kyle: Nope. But summer is consumed with the idea of bringing her mother back to as few charges as possible.

Mariah: Of course she is. ‘Cause all mommy did was fake her own death, try to destroy your mom’s life and kill a man, so there’s nothing to see here.

Kyle: And as obsessed as summer is with getting her mother to come back home, she’s just as focused on smoothing things over with me. She lied to my face for weeks and now she can’t stop saying how sorry she is.

Mariah: Is she actually sorry or is she just sorry she got caught?

Kyle: No, exactly. I mean, she goes on and on about how much she loves me and how special our marriage is, as if things could ever go back to the way they were.

Mariah: I’m sorry. What? Look, regardless of what I think about summer, you guys built a life together, a family.

Kyle: And she blew it up. I mean the lies and– and the manipulation I mean, my dad, he keeps talking about forgiveness, even my mom, but… I see now what you saw all along. Summer is going to summer. This wasn’t an isolated incident. This is who she is. And how can I ever trust again that she will put our marriage first, and our son? And there is zero doubt that phyllis is coming back into our lives, so I refuse to raise harrison in the toxicity that phyllis and summer call love.

Mariah: Man, I thought being right would feel…. a lot better than this.

Kyle: Thanks for letting me vent. And, oh, yeah, would you believe that summer went to my mom? I mean, the woman she was willing to let spend years behind bars, the woman she can’t stand, and asked her to intervene. I mean, how crazy is that?

Mariah: [ Clicks tongue ] Um, maybe not as crazy as you think. Summer… she came to me too.

Kyle: You’re kidding me?

Mariah: Consorting with the enemy. She must be desperate, right?

Kyle: What did you tell her?

Mariah: I told her that she’s not good enough for you. Never was.

Kyle: All that tact. That’s what I love about you.

Mariah: Hey, I’m just speaking my truth.

[ Kyle sighing ] Look… as screwed up as summer is and as screwed up as this whole situation is… I think she loves you. Badly and– and selfishly and in horrible, broken ways. But she definitely still loves you. And I think under the broken pieces of your heart… you might still love her, too.

Kyle: Love has nothing to do with this. It’s about trust, and summer took a sledgehammer to it. That’s why I want a separation. I told summer to move out.

Summer: Hi.

Jack: Hi, summer.

Summer: I guess that kyle’s told you everything.

Jack: I am so sorry.

Summer: I didn’t mean for any of this to happen.

Jack: I know that.

Summer: [ Sighing ] I’ve made such a mess of things.

Jack: Hey, come here.

[ Summer sobbing ]

Summer: I’m sorry. I’m sorry for everything.

Jack: You were put in a very difficult situation.

Summer: No, I can’t make any excuses. Everything I did, it was my choice. I could have gotten the murder charges against diane dropped a lot sooner. I mean, you– you must hate me, too.

Jack: No. No, I could never hate you. In part because I know, for better or worse, you will always protect the mother who was your world.

Summer: Even when she’s turning it upside down.

[ Scoffing ] I… I’ve tried to explain everything to kyle. I’ve tried to… apologize, but it just feels like everything I do is pushing him further away. I guess I deserve that, right? I mean, he just… was trying to love me and I– I betrayed him. I betrayed everything that he thought that our marriage was.

Jack: Kyle is deeply hurt right now.

Summer: I love him. Even as I was screwing everything up, I never stopped loving him. And now he just– he doesn’t want to hear it. I don’t want this. I don’t want a separation. I don’t want to leave his house, harrison, our family. I don’t know what to do, jack. How– how do I convince kyle to forgive me?

Jack: I’m going to tell you what I told my family yesterday. There’s no forcing forgiveness. Kyle wants a separation so that he can process what has happened, so he can cool down. Maybe that would be good for both of you.

Summer: Then why does it feel so final? Needles.

[ Sharon sighing ]

Sharon: Enough of cameron. What’s the rest of your day looking like? Are you going to see how sally’s doing?

Nick: I’m not sure she’s up for a visit after we spoke earlier, but I’m definitely going to stop by.

Sharon: I’m sure she could use all the support she can get.

Nick: Not that she’d admit it. She’s really struggling.

Sharon: So was adam. I wish they could share the loss of the baby together, share the love they had for that little girl. I just think it would go a long way in helping them heal.

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know. Sally blames adam 100%.

Sharon: And adam’s mad at himself and the world.

Nick: We both know how adam gets when he gets mad at himself, he tends to shine that onto the nearest target.

Sharon: Have you seen him?

Nick: Yeah, I saw him last night. Things got a little tense. I warned him that he needed to stay away from sally and just give her some time and space. Not that he listened the first time.

Sharon: He still loves her so much.

Nick: Yeah, but losing the baby? It was the only connection they had. Sally moved on a long time ago. But it doesn’t matter. Adam is going to do whatever he wants. Some people just don’t know how to fade into the woodwork.

Jack: You know that I adore you. I have since the moment I held you in my hands in that elevator when you announced to the world you were very much alive.

[ Summer chuckling ] That hasn’t changed. But I love my son very much and I am going to support whatever decision he makes.

Summer: I– I wouldn’t expect anything else.

[ Summer sighing ] I’ve ruined everything. And it’s not just our family that I’ve messed up.

Jack: Wait, I don’t understand what that means.

Summer: I mean, what’s going to happen to marchetti? Kyle and I can barely be in the same room. How are we gonna work together?

Jack: It’s not going to be easy. Personal differences have to take a back seat to what’s best for the company. That said, you are the driving creative force behind marchetti’s success. You are the brand. So if you and kyle can’t find a way to work together… I think kyle’s gonna have to be the one to step away.

Mariah: Separation. How did summer react?

Kyle: How do you think? She threw it back at me. Pretty much accused me of throwing her out on the street when all she did was try and help her mom.

Mariah: Very dramatic, that one. Are you having second thoughts?

Kyle: No, but I dread what’s ahead, but how can I build a life, a family, with someone who I can never trust again?

Mariah: I think you’re doing the right thing. For you and for harrison.

Kyle: Thanks. It means a lot.

Mariah: Is there anything else going on with you? Not that there needs to be anything else going on with you.

Kyle: I’m just putting one foot in front of the other. So why don’t you take that lukewarm coffee and those pastries back to tessa and give aria kiss for me?

Mariah: You know I’m just a phone call away.

Kyle: Mm-hmm. I know.

Mariah: And I want you to use it or I will hunt you down, I promise you that.

Audra: Hello.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless.

Victor: I’ve become aware that you and a certain member of my family have become acquainted. And I asked you to come here to give you a serious warning.

Summer: I guess there’s just one thing left to do. Harrison. Could you come down here for a minute?

Sharon: I have an idea. But you would have to get your hands dirty.

Nick: Whatever it takes.

[ Ringing ]

It’s trina. I can’t take your call right now. Please leave a message and I’ll call you back.

[ Beep ]

Trina. Call me. I made you an ice pack. Esme! Get out!

[ Exhales sharply ] I’m sorry. What are you apologizing for? Honestly, I’m not even sure. I just thought I should. Oh, you don’t have to be sorry. Tonight was really, really nice — daddy, daddy! Hey, hey, hey, hey. What’s the matter, sweetheart? Aunt elizabeth can’t leave. Not yet. Glad you came by. Good to see you. Of course. You know I always love spending time with you. Can I get you anything, or…? No, no, I’m fine, thanks. I’m just a little curious. What did you want to talk to me about? Your future.

Spencer: Esme! Get out! I’m sorry, trina. I’ll call you again later.

I am so sorry for keeping you waiting. [ Sighs ] But I’m glad you’re here. I’ve been wanting to talk to you. Well, that works out, because I’ve been wanting to talk to you, too. Really? About spencer? No. About curtis. I know what he did.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Hello? Jordan. Glad I caught you. Um, I know it’s late notice, but are you free for dinner tonight? I’m free, but I have no interest in spending my evening with you. Come on. Don’t you think we need to clear the air? As far as I’m concerned, the air is crystal clear. We’re done.

[ Knock on door ] Hold on. Yes?

[ Grunts ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

did you have a bad dream? Was it — was it the shadow again? Yeah. And it was scary. I tried to find you, but I couldn’T. Aunt elizabeth was gone, too. Oh, sweetheart, we’re — we’re both right here for you. Yeah, daddy’s been here the whole time. Really? I promise. And you’re here, too. We’ve both been here. But what if I fall asleep again? What if the shadow comes back and I can’t find either of you again? It’s okay. It’s okay. That is not at all what I was expecting you to say. Gladys and I were talking. She says you’re ready to end the guardianship. That is true. I will forever be grateful to gladys for everything that she has done for me, but I don’t want to be a burden on her any longer. You’re not a burden. To any of us. We just — we just care about you. We want you back on your own two feet. That means a lot. But my decision is only partly about gladys. I just think it’s time. What if I told you gladys thinks you’re not ready? Gladys came to see you about me? Yeah, um, she seems to think that you’re rushing things a little bit. And she’s worried. So am I. I told you I’m fine! Now go! I am not going anywhere. You could have a broken rib or internal bleeding. I don’t have either. I think I would know. Right. Because of all the medical expertise you have. What happened to you, anyway? Did someone attack you? We just got in a little fight. Who is “we”? Someone you know? Or did you get in a fight with a complete stranger? Would it matter? Why do you care? Ow! What the hell?! Did — did you think what would happen if you got hurt or arrested? Did you even stop to think what that would mean for — no, it all just happened kind of fast. So the answer is no, you didn’t think.

[ Sighing ] God!

[ Door closes ] I’m sorry. I can’t talk right now. Jordan! J– well, I can guess what you’re here about. Well, it’s not to get into an argument, if that’s what you’re thinking. I’m really not angry. Good, because you shouldn’t be. Well, not at me, anyway. I just don’t understand why you would tell portia about our kiss when we agreed that we would keep it to ourself and that it was best. And if you changed your mind, why wouldn’t you talk to me first? Look, I tried to warn you. Right, and then, so you decided you knew what was best and that all of a sudden telling portia couldn’t wait. I didn’t say a thing to portia about our kiss. I never wanted her to find out at all. Well, if you didn’t tell her, who did? Obviously, I-I-I’m extremely hurt.

[ Scoffs ] Curtis and I have both made mistakes. Why are you letting him off the hook that easily? I’m not letting him off of the hook, trina. This is — this is complicated, okay? Mom, he kissed another woman. His ex-wife! Why aren’t you angrier with him? Why are you getting all riled up at me about this, sweetie? Because he was wrong. Are you really just gonna roll over and let him treat you like this? This has nothing to do with you! You really have to make the bed right now? I’m — I’m still in it.

[ Sighing ] Okay. Pants. Shirt. Sock. Where’s the other sock? It’s on the sconce. Oh. This is weird. Is this your thing? Is it a thing, like a postcoital cleanup thing? ‘Cause that… I mean, I’m okay with it, but it’s a — it’s a little neurotic. I am not neurotic. You’re orderly. You’re neat. You’re — you’re tidy, right? You gonna come back to bed? Okay. Um… so, not too long ago, you and I, w-we were — we were almost yelling at each other, and we were kind of at each other’s throats. And then we decided to do something else instead. And is that something that we need to talk about? No. Nope, there will be no talking. And I will not be coming back to bed, because you are leaving. Now.

you know what? I’ll be right here if you need me for anything, alright? Okay, but can aunt elizabeth come in with you? Well… aunt elizabeth has to go home to her kids. But I promise you, she’ll come in and say good night to you before she leaves. I like it when she’s here. Don’t you, daddy? I really don’t want to get in the middle of this, curtis. This is between you and portia. What? Oh, so now you want to respect boundaries? After the damage has already been done? Look, you can believe me or not. Well, you obviously knew it was coming, or you wouldn’t have tried to warn me. So, if you didn’t tell portia, then who did? N’neka. N’neka? N’neka, yeah. She was at the club that night. You really think n’neka saw us kissing and then went running to tell portia? What am I supposed to think? Who else could it have been?

[ Sighs ] It was your brother-in-law. Zeke was the one who told portia. Why are you trying to protect me? I’m not a child anymore, mom. But you’re always gonna be my child, trina. And I’m not protecting you. Not in the way that you think. Trust me, this is my attempt at being fair. I’m a grown woman and I need to figure out my relationship with curtis on my own. But why? I’m right here. You can tell me anything. I appreciate you so much for saying that. Listen, I don’t want you involved in any issues that I have with curtis or in my marriage. I don’t want you to have to think about any of that. I don’t want you to have to have baggage when you’re dealing with curtis. You shouldn’t have to be taking sides or keeping secrets or anything like that. I just… I don’t want you to worry about any of this.

[ Cellphone rings ] It’s — yeah, go ahead and take that. No, it’s just… it’s just spencer. Wow. You usually can’t pick up the phone fast enough for spencer.

[ Chuckles ] You feeling okay?

[ Chuckles lightly ] Did you two have a fight? No. We didn’T. But spencer did. “If left untreated, rib fractures can have serious short-term consequences, such as severe pain while breathing, pneumonia, and death.” Well, I thought that you didn’t want to be around me. “Long-term consequences are also possible, such as decreased lung function and chronic pain.” Now, tell me, how are you gonna yell at people if your lungs are damaged? Did you ever think about that? Aww, I didn’t realize you cared so much. I am calling a doctor. No, esme, don’t do that. I don’t have a broken rib. You might not know that until symptoms develop later. If they do, then I’ll contact a doctor at that time. Please, stop worrying about me. Who said I was worried? I just don’t want to have to take you to the emergency room in the middle of the night. It — it would throw off ace’s whole sleep schedule. Oh, my mistake. It’s not about me. Which makes sense because in your eyes, I’m not worth worrying about. To you, I’m always gonna be my father’s son.

[ Keys clatter ] Take a hint, will you? You’re throwing me out? Wow, nothing gets by you. Well, except my keys, apparently.

[ Laughs ] Oh, come on. We — we both know this was a mistake. But we’re adults, so we can skillfully pretend that it never happened. N-now get a move on, because your shoes are next. And I’ll have much better aim. Y-you don’t need to do that. I-I don’t want to stay somewhere I’m not wanted. But just so you know… I-I feel that what went on here was not a mistake. If it weren’t for nikolas’ accidental death, we wouldn’t even be here. We would hardly know each other. Yeah, but we do know each other. And we are here. And I think that there are actual, literal scratches on my back that let me know that you might think that there are worse ways to spend an evening.

Yes. I like it when elizabeth is here. But don’t you think your cousins would miss her if she was here all the time? They could come, too. Or we could go there. Oh, boy. How’s it going out here? Oh.

[ Gasps ] Aunt elizabeth! Guess what I have. How would you like some of my very special sleepy time magic milk? Hey, how did you know about that? Oh, all the mommies know. Oh. Did you make sure to add the secret ingredient? Well, of course. It wouldn’t be magic without it. It tastes different than when daddy makes it. Mm! Aunt elizabeth’s is better. Aw. But yours is good, too, daddy. Yeah. Thank you, sweetheart.

[ Both laugh ] I think I’m doing the right thing by ending my guardianship, but I wish that I was sure. Alright, listen, tell me what doubts you’re having. Um… it’s just that… some days, I feel strong and confident and healthy. And then other days, are just…so-so.

[ Chuckles ] Where everything just feels off and it feels like I’m just pretending to hold it together.

[ Exhales deeply ] But those… those don’t bother me that much. I’m — I’m used to those. I think we — we all have so-so days, right? Probably.

[ Both laugh ] Those are not the days that — that scare me. The — the days that terrify me are… the bad days. The days when the darkness just comes back. Because it will happen for no reason at all. I will be putting sugar into my coffee, and then suddenly I’m remembering when I was pregnant and I couldn’t have caffeine. And it was the worst. But it was totally worth it ’cause I already loved my baby so much, and… I just couldn’t wait to meet him. Of course you couldn’T. And then I’m remembering… that my baby is gone. And the sadness just takes over. And it just feels like A… like a weight is pressing down on my heart and… and it scares me because I don’t know — was that a memory or — or was it just a delusion? Did I somehow think that I was pregnant again? We both know what grief does. Plays tricks with your mind and messes with your sense of time. That’s what I think, too. Because, you know, the next day might be so-so again. A-and the day after that might even be good. So, does it scare me to think about being on my own again and — and make my own decisions? Yes. But something inside of me is telling me that I am ready. And… I think it’s time that I start listening to that voice. But maybe I’m making a mistake. What do you think, sonny? Do you think that I am doing the wrong thing by trusting myself? I can see that you don’t w antto discuss our relationship. We don’t even have a relationship! We’re being blackmailed together. That’s it. I do enjoy your company, ava. We were just yelling at each other not too long ago. Well, almost. I-I mean, there was A…

[ Sighs ] We were trying to release a lot of pressure and, clearly, sexual tension. Oh, you are really sure of yourself. No, I’m — I’m not, actually. Not at all. I-in fact, it’s really difficult for me to let people in. And I don’t mean to presume to speak for you, but I think I-I — it’s really hard to make a human connection. And I’m just saying, let’s be honest. L-l-let’s admit to one another that we just had a profound human physical connection. You lied to me, you kidnapped my daughter, and now you’re saying that I — I owe you honesty? Oh, okay. I can see where you’re going with this. Okay, so — so, under certain terms — I have a little advice for you. Don’t ever pull a stunt like that again. Because if you do, the next body I dump in the stables… …is gonna be yours. I don’t know much about nikolas except that he kept me locked in a tower because he wanted to keep my baby away from me. And I know if given the chance, you would do the same. Just in case. I just want to take care of my brother ace, so… well, I guess that is the difference between the two of you, because at least you’re here. He isn’T. And since we’ve moved into your grandmother’s, you have been pretty reliable. Up until now. What happened tonight? I got into a fight. Why? With josslyn’s new boyfriend. And I did it because I was angry and because I don’t like him and I don’t like what he did. Josslyn was dating my friend cameron when she met dex, and she was still seeing him when dex and josslyn got together for the first time. Then why are you mad at dex? Uh, isn’t that josslyn’s fault? You wouldn’t understand. There’s more — there’s more to it than that. You don’t know why you hit him, do you? I don’t understand why we’re talking about this. Because you’re literally the last person that I want to confide in, esme. Well, that’s dumb. Because I might be the only person who actually understands. Yeah? Why is that? Well, because I do it, too. I mean, I-I-I get angry, I lash out, I make choices that I regret, I make mistakes. And the worst part is when I do get mad, everyone’s just looking around and judging me like, “oh, look, there she goes again. Back to her old lying ways. I knew she couldn’t be trusted.” And you have confirmed all of their worst suspicions about you. And they have no idea that the entire time, you were just trying to do the right thing. Spencer and I went to the highsider. The highsider? The — the biker bar where oz haggerty worked? Yeah. We were looking for evidence to use against esme to prove that she’s guilty. And let me guess, this little excursion was spencer’s idea? Not exactly. You know, I-I don’t even care whose idea it was. I-I don’t like you going to that place. Mom. We weren’t just going to that place.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] Anyway… so, joss had the same idea. She brought dex. And spencer picked a fight.

Again. So, it looks like spencer is back to his old ways. Yeah. And I don’t even recognize him anymore. Really? Because I can. To me, he will always be the boy who lied to my daughter, put her into harm’s way. How does zeke know what happened between you and me? I told him. What — why did you do that? Because I didn’t know who he was. I’d just found out that you were moving back in with portia, and I needed someone to talk to. Zeke was just a friendly stranger with a sympathetic ear. We met at the metro court, and I started venting. I didn’t use any names, just told him I had kissed my ex but it wasn’t going anywhere. If you didn’t use any names, how did he figure it out? Portia introduced us. It didn’t take zeke long to put two and two together. I told him to keep it to himself, but he said he had to tell her. I just don’t understand how you could tell someone, a perfect stranger, something so personal about us. That’s just not like you.

[ Scoffs ] I needed someone to confide in. You had portia. And I was all alone.

[ Knock on door ] And now that you know, I don’t see what else there is to talk about.

Curtis. If I didn’t have time to talk to you on the phone, what made you think I wanted you to come by my office? Well, it’s not like I knew curtis was gonna be here. Didn’t you tell my sister it was over between you and jordan? That’s none of your business. Mm. Don’t you think you’ve caused enough problems between portia and me? Well, I wouldn’t be involved if you had just been honest with her from the beginning. I bet you just can’t wait to run back to portia and tell her you found me here tonight. After what you put my sister through, what do you expect? I expect you to keep your damn mouth shut, zeke. Or you and me… we’re gonna have a problem. I remember how spencer treated me. But he’s changed. Has he, though?

[ Scoffs ] Because the fight that you’re describing makes it sound like maybe he’s still working on it. You think I’m being naive? I didn’t — I didn’t say that. I didn’t say that. Look, I-I do see what you’re saying with spencer. He has made significant strides in growing up since you’ve met him. Yes. And it’s largely because of you. Yes, he has. He’s more mature now, asking for help when he needs it. And he seems like he’s really, you know, taking the responsibility of ace seriously with esme. And esme’s even open to taking a parenting class with spencer, which goes to show his responsibility, right? That sounds like a good sign. But by the look on your face, maybe it’s not a good sign. No, I mean… I’m glad spencer is being responsible towards ace. Mm-hmm. But what?

[ Sighs ] It’s nothing. Sweetheart. Honey, it’s me. I’m your mom. I know you. You can talk to me. I don’t care about the class. But I can’t stand the thought of spencer spending even one extra second with esme. Sounds like we’re both trying to be better people. You’re just now figuring that out? Yes. Obviously, I have been trying to be better. It’s possible that I haven’t been giving you much of a chance. Whatever. It’s not a big deal. I actually get how it might be harder for you. For me? Why? Well, because you remember the terrible person that you were. I just have to be told about myself over and over. Yeah, that’s hard. Yes. I mean, constantly hearing what a terrible person you are from everyone. You know, you’re the only one who never talks about our history. We… dated in boarding school, right? Mm-hmm. For like a year. What were we like as a couple? I don’t like to remember that time. Understandable. But just tell me, were we really these awful people destroying everything we touched?

[ Chuckles ] No. Not always.

[ Both laugh ] Um… I was very unhappy when we met. I was estranged from my father and I had a big chip on my shoulder because of that. I didn’t have any friends, just people who wanted to get close to me because I had money. So, I was a bit of a jerk in return because of that. You? A jerk? No way. And then I met you and you really listened to me and you took an interest in my life. And you didn’t just tell me what I wanted to hear because I’m a cassadine. And I started to depend on you, more than I think you knew. But it was all… none of it was real. And you were manipulating me the entire time. You were my first love. And you were just using me. How is she? Finally asleep. Your milk did the trick. Apparently, yours is more magical than mine. It’s the cinnamon.

[ Chuckles ] I can’t thank you enough. You’re really good with her. I’m glad you feel that way. I was hoping that I-I wasn’t overstepping by making the magic milk.

[ Chuckles ] No. Not at all. You know, my boys are growing up, and with cameron all the way in california, I’ve just been feeling it lately. They’ll always need you. I know, but not in the same way. Guess I got to let them grow up at some point. Or so I’ve been told.

[ Chuckles ] You know, violet’s always here if your mom urge gets real strong. You know how much she likes seeing you. Careful. I’ll be over here every night making magic milk.

[ Chuckles ] I’m kidding. I’m just kidding. Yeah, no, I know. Well, I should get going — would you like a cup of tea — oh.

[ Both chuckle ] You need to get home to the boys. Yeah. Yeah, I should. Even though they won’t be nearly as happy to see me as violet was.

[ Laughs ] Violet…and — and me.

what do I think? Uh, well, I mean, you didn’t tell me if you’re fine, if you’re alright, it’s all — you know, you don’t need anybody, and you’re all better.

[ Chuckles ] I only wish I was that confident. Well, it’s a good thing, ’cause if you would have said that, then I’d say that, you know, you need to spend a few more months with gladys. ‘Cause in my experience, people who say that everything’s great all the time, you know, usually aren’T. That makes a lot of sense. You can’t be great all the time, especially… after what you’ve gone through. Let me explain something to you. You can handle a lot more than you think. That’s why I think it’s time for you to be on your own. Now, don’t get mad at me ’cause you kissed jordan. I had to tell portia. Did you? Yes, I did. And neither one of you would have done the same thing if you were in my position. That’s not even what I’m talking about. You told trina, right after I found out that she was my daughter, to steer clear of me. I didn’t even get into any specifics with her, alright? That’s even worse, because you let her imagination run wild. She was just beginning to trust me, man. Well, maybe she shouldn’T. Maybe neither one of you should be trusted. Jordan, why don’t you remind me just how you two met in the first place? I’m starting to see why you’re so angry with me. I’m angrier with myself. For letting myself be manipulated by you. Okay. Sure. The old esme was calculating. But I seriously doubt someone could fake a relationship for a whole year. Who are you trying to make feel better here — me or you? Maybe both. Um… I [Chuckles] Think the old esme must’ve really liked you. Even just a little. That’s doubtful. Although… what?

[ Laughing ] No. No. What? There was this one time when I was trying to figure out what to get you for your birthday, and I didn’t really know what to get you, so I was asking around. I asked the same friends who were still leeching on me for money, and they told me that I should get you jewelry. Something expensive. Which makes sense, right? So I did. Generous. But then there was this snow globe that I got when I was a kid. And I had taken it with me to school. And it was so cheesy. It was like two skiers on top of a mountain with a log cabin and fir trees. It was hideous. I don’t know why you liked it, but you did. You loved it and you played with it every single time you came into my room. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why. So, at the last minute, I grabbed that as well. Instead of the jewelry? No, no, no, no. I gave you both just to be safe. Oh. Okay. Yeah. And don’t get me wrong, you liked the jewelry. But your face when you saw this snow globe… I mean, the expression was one of pure joy. I’d never seen anything like it before in my whole life, esme. And I still — I-I can’t figure out why someone would have liked a regifted snow globe so much.

[ Both laugh ] I can. The old esme really liked you. It wouldn’t bother me that much if it was anyone other than esme. After what she did to me, joss, and cam, I-I… ugh! The thought of her being with spencer makes me sick. Esme deserves to pay for her crimes, and — and hopefully the evidence is found to bring her to justice. But the pcpd, they’ve been down this road already and they’ve come up empty. Maybe they’ll never find anything. Then what? Esme will just be in my life forever? Honey, nobody can predict the future. But, um… if spencer’s in your life and ace is in his, then esme will be in yours.

Uh, thank you. A-and I’d keep that on for another 10 minutes. I can’t accept that esme will always be in my life. I want to be with spencer. Or at least I thought I did. Just not like this. He’s either spending all of his time with esme or raising a child on his own. That’s what I’ve been trying to get you to see, trina. You have to have your own life. Honey, you are smart. You’re beautiful. You have opportunity. There are so many experiences out there for you to have. You have this whole big world that you haven’t even tapped into yet. Please, please, don’t make it smaller. Not when you don’t have to. I can see what’s going on here. Back off, curtis. It’s none of your business. I can handle my own ex-husband, thank you. But zeke’s right. Stay out of it. Look, I don’t care what happened between you. But my daughter — that is my business. Zeke better think twice before he interferes in our business again.

[ Scoffs ] Well, that was awkward. Now that he’s gone, we should talk. There’s nothing to discuss. You know the way out.

[ Sighs ]

[ Door closes ] I am so glad that we had this talk, sonny. I wasn’t sure if I was making the right decision, but you made me feel good about it. Well, you know, you can never be 100% sure, but I can tell you what — you’re — you’re on the right track. That means the world to me. And listen, just because you’re ending the guardianship doesn’t mean that you’re on your own. I’m always here to back you. You know that. And I think gladys is, too. Now get out of here. Go live your life.

[ Laughs ] Enjoy yourself. Thank you, sonny. Really, I mean it. Thank you. I had a really good time, too.

[ Chuckles ] But you’ve just gone on an 8-year-old’s version of the perfect date.

[ Laughs ] And I can’t thank you enough for letting her do that. It was fun. Really. You don’t have to say that. I’d offer you a ride home, but…

[ Chuckles ] Your baby’s asleep. And I drove myself here, so… okay. Good night. Good night. If I leave now, I got to wake the boat launching guy. So wouldn’t it just be better if I spent the night? You could always swim. Really. The water is really very warm this time of year. Okay. Yeah, I-I couldn’t do that. I can’T. I’m exhausted. And I think you know why. In fact, I-I’m willing to bet that you’re gonna sleep pretty soundly tonight, ava.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Hope: Liam, please– [ Sobs ] Please listen to me. We– we shouldn’t let this ruin what we worked so hard–

Liam: You kissed thomas, hope. You– you kissed him.

Hope: I know, I know–

Liam: You grabbed his face, leaned in, and you kissed him!

Hope: I know, but I love you! It was a mistake, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I know that I messed up. I don’t know– I don’t know what I was thinking. But please, liam, please tell me that we can work through this. Please! Tell me you can forgive me.

Finn: I’m gonna go, babe. I’m gonna be late.

[ Chuckles ] I’m sorry. About hope and liam. Okay? I really am.

Steffy: Yeah, I wanted to be wrong. For liam’s sake.

Finn: He flew halfway across the world to find his wife kissing another man.

Steffy: Liam has always said that hope is the most forgiving person he has ever known. So, maybe he can find forgiveness to keep their marriage alive.

Finn: Liam didn’t catch hope just kissing any man.

Steffy: I know. And that’s why I feel bad for thomas in all this.

Finn: Yeah, but knowing everything that your brother has put liam and hope through in the past and how much liam distrusts thomas, I mean, I have a hard time believing that liam is just gonna accept and forgive hope’s feelings for thomas.

Hope: Liam, I know that you are hurt and I know that you are angry.

Liam: I’m hurt and I’m angry because I can’t unsee you kissing thomas. That’s why I’m hurt and angry.

Hope: So then– so then stop thinking about it! Just try to think about the future of our family. About beth, about douglas.

Liam: I am thinking about beth! I am thinking about douglas. I am thinking about how this is going to affect them, only this time, the threat to our happiness is not just thomas, is it? It’s you! It’s you. And you’ve been gaslighting me for months. All this time, I was so worried that something would happen and never thought it was this. I never thought it would be you pursuing him, you kissing him, you falling for him.

Hope: It’s not like that! It wasn’t like that. I know– I know you want some sort of ex– explanation, but I can’t give you one, because there is none, because I don’t even understand it. I didn’t want this. I don’t know why I’m feeling this way. I don’t– I was trying to fight against it, and I just– [ Sobs ] It’s not an excuse. It’s not. It’s not. And I know that all– all I can say is I’m sorry. Liam, I– I am– I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

Liam: I don’t believe you. I wish I could accept your apology, I just– I’m tired. I’m really tired. I– um… I’m gonna come back, I’m gonna get some of my stuff, but, um… I’m gonna leave.

Hope: Liam…

Liam: And, uh… I want a divorce.

Hope: What?

Liam: And we’ll work it out with the kids. I just, uh… I just can’T. I can’t do this anymore. And, um, plus, I don’t– I don’t really know who you are, so… bye, hope.

Finn: Hope and liam are a strong couple, but… this is a big issue.

Steffy: I warned hope to get her feelings under control. And I told liam what was going on because this is exactly what I was afraid of. Think of all the things this could impact. Their relationship, our families, the business. The line!

Finn: Yeah, I know– we don’t know anything yet, right? And a lot can still happen.

Steffy: Yeah, most of it’s bad.

Finn: Okay. I– I– I feel terrible. I gotta go to work.

Steffy: Yeah, I know. I know I made you late enough.

Finn: Look, maybe I am being pessimistic, all right? They do love each other. Maybe that’s strong enough to hold ’em together.

Steffy: You’re just saying that because you don’t want me to worry.

Finn: [ Chuckles ] I’m saying that because I know that that kind of love exists. Whether they have it or not, I don’t know. I know one couple that does. Okay.

[ Knock on door ]

Hope: Liam!

Rj: Hey. What’s up?

Hope: Rj, hi.

Rj: I heard you were home, and I just wanted to stop by and congratulate you on your success. Hey, what’s– what’s going on? What’s wrong?

Wyatt: Hey. Uh, I got your message. Why’d you want to meet here? Is dad back?

Liam: Um… no, he– he’s, uh, he’s on the stella maris. I don’t know when he’s gonna be back. But, um… when he is, I’m moving in.

Wyatt: You’re moving in with– with dad? Oh, shoot… uh… well, what– what happened? Did– did you– did you talk to hope?

Liam: I tried to talk to her. I– I asked her, “how was your trip?” But she didn’t– she just wanted to talk about how– how good it was until she saw my italian luggage tags on my bag. And then she wondered why I would go all the way to rome and not see her.

Wyatt: Only you– you did…

Liam: Yeah, I sure did.

[ Sighs ] Now, I can’t unsee her. The love of my life making out with my worst enemy. And she kissed him, too. My god, she just– she initiated the whole thing. She just went for it.

Wyatt: I– I know, and– and I’m– I’m sorry, man. I– this– it’s gotta be a real punch in the gut for you.

Liam: I’m just tired. You know? I’m tired of thomas occupying so much space in the middle of my relationship, and it’s never gonna change, and it’s exhausting, and I just don’t wanna do that anymore.

Wyatt: Okay. Look, so you– you’ll moving in with dad, right? You know, you’ll take some time to cool off. That’s– that’s good.

Liam: Time is not gonna fix this. Nor is any excuse about the magic of rome, or, you know, getting caught up in the moment, or riding the high of the preview, or even hope turning into her mother. This is not– I didn’t leave to cool off. I left because my marriage is over, and I asked for a divorce. (Dog barking) we love our pets.

-During an asthma attack,

Liam: I can’t– I can’t take it.

Wyatt: [ Scoffs ] Oh, okay, fine. You– you saw your wife kissing thomas of all people, and it’s freaking heartbreaking. But liam–

Liam: Hey, I can’T. I’m telling you that I can’t do that anymore. It’s so obvious hope has feelings for thomas, even if she can’t admit it to herself at this point. And that– that’s not something I can just live with forever, especially after– it’s thomas, man! I mean, after– after everything that he’s done to us and our marriage and our family… it doesn’t matter what angle you look at this from. My feelings are not gonna change.

Wyatt: Okay, but that’s what you’re feeling right now. And you’re in the heat of it right now, right? That– it’s understandable–

Liam: Wyatt. Wyatt.

Wyatt: I’d be pissed off too.

Liam: Wyatt. It’s over. My marriage is over.

[ Wyatt sighs ]

Wyatt: I mean… all right. I’m– I’m here for you, you know, whatever you need. You– you can always count on me.

Liam: I know that.

Wyatt: So… what now? Where– where do you– where do you go from here?

[ Liam scoffs ]

Liam: I have so many regrets.

Wyatt: About? Whoa. Liam.

Rj: Hey, hey. You can talk to me, okay? Tell me, let me– let me help you.

Hope: No, it’s too late for that.

Rj: You just got back from rome. Your collection was a hit! You did great. I thought– I thought you’d be on top of the world right now.

Hope: [ Laughs ] I was… until I messed it all up.

Rj: Where’s liam? Is liam here?

Hope: No. I was so excited to get home and to see him and the kids and to tell them all about my trip. I mean, I even got them, like, little souvenirs, and… instead I come home and liam’s just sitting there alone.

[ Sobs ]

Rj: What’s going on, hope? Talk to me, all right? Tell me what happened.

Hope: Okay. Um… liam wanted to know everything about the trip, and so I told him about the preview and the press event, and, um, you know, that it was a success. And– and then I saw, right over there, his luggage with a tag from the rome airport.

Rj: He– he ended up going to rome? Oh, that’s great! Well, finn and I were trying to convince him to go to surprise you.

Hope: He missed the entire event and I didn’t even see him.

Rj: He went all the way there and you– you didn’t even see him?

Hope: Oh, no, no. He saw me, um… at the colosseum. I just– I didn’t know.

Rj: So he– he saw you but he didn’t speak a word to you? Hope, that doesn’t make any sense.

Hope: Yeah. Rj, you should know that after the big event, and it was a success, and it was great, and we were all celebrating, I wanted to go sightseeing. And I wasn’t really thinking, and I just, um… got caught up in the moment, and I, um, I– I– I was, um… I was at the colosseum, but I– I wasn’t alone.

Rj: Were you with thomas? I know he doesn’t like seeing the two of you together, but you’re saying that he saw the two of you celebrating together and that pissed him off so much that he flew all the way back to la? Why, hope?

[ Knock on door ]

Steffy: Liam.

Liam: Hi. I didn’t, um, see finn’s car in the driveway.

Steffy: Yeah, he left for the hospital. What’s going on? Why are you here?


Hope: You know, I– I don’t want to lay all my problems on my little brother, so.

Rj: Okay. Well, do you want me to get mom? I can get mom.

Hope: No! No. She’ll learn about it sooner or later. Everyone will.

Rj: Learn what? Is this about liam not staying in rome? ‘Cause I can tell something happened when you got home. I mean, you said he was here and now he’s not. Did you guys just have an argument?

Hope: Yes, and I have never seen him more hurt or disillusioned.

Rj: With you? Why? Hope, you’re an amazing mom and an amazing wife. He’s lucky to have you. All right, this is– this is all some kind of misunderstanding. You know.. [ Laughs ] …What kind of guy flies all the way to rome just to surprise his wife? I think he cares about her a little bit. And yeah, he– he saw you with thomas, and that’s gonna piss him off, and it’s always gonna piss him off, but that doesn’t change the fact that he absolutely loves you.

Hope: Yeah, he did.

Rj: He did? That’s a question now? So you’re saying he saw you and thomas together in rome, and just that freaked him out so much that he went back to la? What did he see, hope?

Hope: Rj, you know how much family means to me, and how much I love liam and our kids, and that is the truth. And even though liam might not believe it right now, it, um… I guess that I don’t really blame him for thinking that after what he saw.

[ Chuckles tearfully ] So, um, yeah. When I– when he saw me at the colosseum, I wasn’t just with thomas. I kissed him.

Steffy: Liam, what’s going on?

Liam: How’s kelly? Is she happy you’re home?

Steffy: Kelly’s fine. It’s not why you’re here, is it? You were waiting for hope to get home. So what– what happened? Did she admit to kissing thomas?

Liam: Ha! No. No, I had to tell her what I saw.

Steffy: So what did– what did she say?

Liam: “I’m sorry. I don’t know what came over me. Please forgive me.”

Steffy: Well, did you? Did you forgive her?

Liam: Well, I left her. So, I’m done with this, steffy. Hope and I are over.

Steffy: No, liam. Liam, you don’t– you don’t mean that.

Liam: I do. Well, I mean it enough to ask for a divorce.

Steffy: A divorce?

Liam: Steffy, I– I can’t even look at her. What am I supposed to do?

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Liam: Hope and me…

[ Scoffs ] …We’re done. Okay? I just– I can’t– I can’t keep doing this over and over again. I just can’T. I gotta… I gotta move on with my life.

[ Steffy sighs ] Yeah. Yeah, I gotta move on.

Steffy: Can’t wh–

Interview with “Jack Ryan” actors

TV Interview!


Actors from "Jack Ryan," Michael Peña, Louis Ozawa, Betty Gabriel and Abbie Cornish

Interview with Michael Peña, Louis Ozawa, Betty Gabriel and Abbie Cornish of “Jack Ryan” on Prime Video by Suzanne 6/16/23

These were two very short interviews for this show. I don’t watch the show regularly, but if you love lots of action and some political intrigue, this is the show for you. I think it does help to know who’s who and what’s going on if you watched the first three seasons, but it’s not impossible to enjoy this fourth season if you haven’t. It’s fairly self-contained. Betty Gabriel is a regular on the show. Abbie Cornish is returning to the show. Michael Peña and Louis Ozawa both play very interesting villains this season.

The fourth and final season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan finds the titular character on his most dangerous mission yet: facing an enemy both foreign and domestic. As the new CIA Acting Deputy Director, Jack Ryan is tasked with unearthing internal corruption, and in doing so, uncovers a series of suspicious black ops that could expose the vulnerability of the country. As Jack and the team investigate how deep the corruption runs, he discovers a far-worse reality—the convergence of a drug cartel with a terrorist organization—ultimately revealing a conspiracy much closer to home and testing our hero’s belief in the system he has always fought to protect.

The series stars John Krasinski as Jack Ryan, Wendell Pierce as James Greer, Michael Kelly as Mike November, and Betty Gabriel as CIA Acting Director Elizabeth Wright, with Abbie Cornish returning as Cathy Mueller. Joining the cast this season are Michael Peña as Domingo Chavez and Louis Ozawa as Chao Fah.

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is co-produced by Amazon Studios, Paramount Television Studios, and Skydance Television, and executive produced by Allyson Seeger, Andrew Form, John Krasinski, Brad Fuller, Michael Bay, and John Kelly. Additionally, Tom Clancy and Skydance Television’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Matt Thunell executive produce the fourth season, along with Vaun Wilmott, Mace Neufeld and Carlton Cuse.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Tripp talks on the phone to Steve, telling him how sorry he is to hear about Abe. Tripp notes that Abe was pretty much family to most of the town.

Eric enters the DiMera Mansion and tells Nicole that he wanted to come see her as soon as he heard about Abe. Nicole asks what about Abe.

Chloe and Xander eat together at their apartment but Xander says he doesn’t have much of an appetite. Chloe calls that unusual and asks if it’s about finding out that Gwen is getting married. Xander admits it was a bit of a shock. Chloe asks if he wants to talk about it.

Leo questions Dimitri’s proposal to Gwen and asks where the ring is. Dimitri agrees and says to let him do this the proper way. Dimitri then gets down on one knee to propose to Gwen. Leo says the answer is a hard no. Leo admits the ring is huge but insists there is no way that Gwen is accepting his proposal. Dimitri asks what Gwen says. Leo says he first has his own question, like what the hell is actually happening here.

Xander tells Chloe that there’s nothing to talk about. Chloe says he doesn’t have to pretend not to care about Gwen. Xander says he only cares but he doesn’t feel good about hurting her and admits she has been through a lot, so she does deserve some happiness. Xander argues that Gwen and Dimitri have known each other for five minutes and questions how he can make her happy. Chloe asks if he’s talked to Gwen about it. Xander says they are hardly on good terms. Chloe comments on Xander still being protective of Gwen. Xander says Gwen can make her own decisions, he just doesn’t want her to end up making one that she will regret for the rest of her life.

Sloan visits Colin in the interrogation room. Colin reiterates that he’s going to take his chances at trial. Sloan states that she came to inform him that Abe Carver is dead.

Eric shocks Nicole by revealing that Abe is dead, noting that they haven’t recovered his body yet but they have a witness who says they saw Abe fall off the docks in to the water. Nicole argues that he could’ve survived then. Eric calls it very unlikely and adds that Rafe and Eli found Abe’s blood and his hospital bracelet at the scene. Nicole says she can’t believe this even though she knew it was possible when he went missing. Eric apologizes as he thought she knew. Nicole holds back tears and repeats that she can’t believe this to be true. Eric notes that Abe loved Nicole so much. Nicole cries that having Abe in her life meant so much to her as he was in her corner no matter what. Nicole states that even when she felt alone, she always had Abe and he never judged her. Eric acknowledges that she was like a daughter to Abe. Nicole wonders what she’s going to do without Abe. Eric hugs Nicole as she cries.

Wendy tells Tripp that it’s awful how Abe died. Tripp calls it a tragedy and says he feels so bad for Abe’s family as well as Steve and Kayla. Tripp notes that he’s glad to be here with her. Wendy thanks him for a wonderful dinner. Tripp brings up revisiting their goodnight kiss that got interrupted when Johnny called to cancel their date. Wendy thinks that would not be wrong at all as they kiss.

Chloe asks Xander how worried she has to be of how protective he is of Gwen. Chloe talks about spending a good portion of her life in relationships with men who are conflicted, unavailable, or a hot mess. Xander assures that she should not worry about he and Gwen. Xander admits that he was thrown to find out that she’s getting married but insists that he’s totally over Gwen. Chloe says that’s good to hear. Xander then admits that Sarah may always be the one that got away.

Nicole finishes a call with her brother Brandon about Abe. Nicole can’t imagine what Theo must be feeling right now and wants to check on him. Eric tells her to let him know if she needs anything. Nicole thanks him for checking on her and says it means a lot. Eric reveals that it was actually Sloan’s idea which Nicole questions. Eric explains that they were together when he got the news about Abe and he mentioned how close Abe and Nicole were, so Sloan said he needed to come see her right away. Nicole admits that was nice of her and jokes that maybe Sloan does have a heart. Nicole then remarks that Eric probably already knew that since he’s trying to have a baby with her.

Colin tells Sloan that Abe being dead is the best news he’s heard all day. Colin calls it tragic and says he didn’t have anything personal against him but argues that he was asking for it by marrying in to the family who destroyed their family and continuing to support Chanel and Paulina. Sloan questions that making him happy. Colin responds that he’s all for anything that causes Chanel and Paulina to suffer and now they know what it’s like to lose someone they love. Sloan complains that she’s not going to sit here while he dances on a man’s grave. Colin mocks Sloan having an epiphany and deciding that all was forgiven. Colin asks if Sloan is on the path of righteousness now. Sloan thinks back to faking the paternity test. Colin asks what she’s thinking about. Sloan responds that she’s not all goodness and light at all as she calls herself a complete hypocrite.

Gwen tells Dimitri that he doesn’t have to answer Leo. Dimitri says he will address Leo’s concerns. Dimitri declares that he’s fallen head over heels in love with Gwen and he wants to marry her because she’s the most captivating and fascinating creature he’s ever met, so nothing will make him happier than knowing she is his forever. Leo asks how gullible he thinks they are and insists that he has an ulterior motive. Dimitri thinks back to leaving Megan a voicemail about their plan. Dimitri says it’s clear that Leo is a loyal and devoted friend of Gwen’s and he’s sure it hasn’t been easy to watch various men of questionable character cause her pain. Dimitri argues that he and Leo aren’t enemies, they are allies because they want the same exact thing and that is to see Gwen happy and safe. Dimitri claims there is nothing in the world that he wants more than to marry Gwen, but if she can’t find it in her heart to accept then he will withdraw his proposal. Gwen realizes that Dimitri was just trying to get Leo to stop being a pain in the ass, but she does not need anyone’s blessing to marry him. Dimitri says he would hate to ever put her in the position of choosing between him and Leo. Dimitri acknowledges that this all happened very fast and asks Leo to avoid judgment to give him the opportunity to finally give Gwen the happiness that she deserves.

Chloe acknowledges that Xander has always been honest with her about Sarah. Xander says that Chloe has always been the same about Brady. Chloe states that’s why they have been taking things slow, but she wants to move on. Xander says he does too and he knows what’s going on between them is brand new but it feels right. Chloe says it does to her too. Chloe adds that she was just talking to Nicole about this. Chloe admits that Nicole wasn’t thrilled but she told her that she won’t talk her out of exploring things with him. Chloe adds that Nicole didn’t agree to back off, but they talked and she felt like it was acceptance. Chloe then brings up that Nicole asked if they have slept together. Chloe says she was vague as she doesn’t kiss and tell. Xander then kisses Chloe.

Tripp and Wendy continue kissing until they are interrupted by a knock at the door. Wendy answers the door to see Johnny.

Colin asks Sloan how she is a hypocrite, insisting that she can tell him anything. Sloan responds that she did something that might really hurt Eric. Colin guesses she was screwing around since she’s not a one man kind of girl. Sloan says with Eric, it’s different. Colin asks if she’s finally found someone she’s serious about. Sloan confirms that she loves Eric. Colin asks how bad what she did was. Sloan says it doesn’t matter but Colin urges her to confess to him on how she sinned against Eric. Sloan then reveals that Eric’s ex-wife Nicole is pregnant and the child could be his.

Eric knows Nicole thinks his relationship with Sloan is a bad idea. Nicole stops him and says he doesn’t owe her an explanation. Eric remarks that it seems like she needs one. Nicole says she was just thrown off guard when Sloan blurted out that they were trying to have a baby. Nicole wonders if Sloan was just trying to get a rise out of her, but Eric thinks that Sloan is just excited about the idea. Nicole asks if having a baby was Sloan’s idea. Eric says they came to it together. Eric admits that Sloan saw how disappointed he was when he found out Nicole’s baby was EJ’s. Nicole knows Eric has always wanted to be a father but she wasn’t sure since they both know how complicated this would’ve been. Eric knows somehow they would have made it work, so he admits that part of him was hoping her baby was his. Nicole then gets a sudden stomach pain.

Sloan explains to Colin that she swabbed her own cheek and that’s what the lab got sent so neither Eric or EJ were actually tested. Colin encourages that she got what she wanted and Eric is free to be with her but Sloan says she feels terrible about it. Colin points out that she doesn’t feel terrible enough to tell the truth. Sloan talks about everyone she’s lost, her parents and now Colin going away to prison, so she was terrified of losing Eric to Nicole. Sloan says Eric has always wanted to be a father and he has decades of history with Nicole. Colin feels she was leveling the playing field and that she did what she had to do to hold on to someone she loves and there’s no shame in that. Sloan feels there is shame in deception. Sloan encourages her to let it go and enjoy the victory because after everything they’ve been through, she deserves a win. Sloan tells Colin that she wants to make up for what she did by giving Eric a baby that they know for sure is his.

Nicole gets through her pain. Eric asks if she’s sure she’s okay. Nicole assures that the pain has passed. Eric asks if she wants to get checked out but Nicole declines and blames her lunch. Nicole then gets another pain so Eric says he’s going to find EJ. Nicole stops Eric and says he isn’t going to find him as he hasn’t been here for awhile which is why she was upset when he first came in. Eric asks where EJ is. Nicole responds that he went away on a last minute business trip and she hasn’t heard from him since. Eric questions EJ not calling. Nicole says it’s just been the occasional text. Eric asks where he is or when he’s coming back. Nicole says he hasn’t said. Eric questions what the hell EJ is up to and if he’s bailing out on her and the pregnancy. Nicole doesn’t want to talk about it. Nicole continues feeling pain, so Eric decides that he’s taking her to the hospital and walks her out of the mansion.

Leo brings up that Dimitri wanted his head on a spike not long ago, but now he wants his blessing to marry Gwen. Dimitri states that he was rightfully upset with him for costing him the emerald, but now things have changed and Gwen is the only treasure that matters to him. Gwen calls that awfully sweet. Dimitri asks Leo if they can put their differences behind them since he’s clearly very important to Gwen which makes him very important to him. Leo admits that he said all the right things even if it all rang hollow. Leo adds that maybe he is overly cynical and distrustful because of his parents. Leo reluctantly agrees to allow the marriage against his better judgment. Gwen mocks needing his permission and reminds them that she hasn’t given Dimitri an answer yet. Gwen jokes that now that Dimitri and Leo have made up, maybe they should ride off in to the sunset. Dimitri says he’s pretty sure he and Gwen are the better couple. Dimitri tells Gwen that he loves her but she doesn’t have to answer him right now. Dimitri notes that tonight, his mother is throwing an engagement party for Stefan and Gabi, so nothing would make him happier than having Gwen on his arm. Dimitri suggests maybe the happy occasion will inspire her to accept his ring.

Wendy tells Johnny that she thought he was staying with Chanel. Johnny says Paulina came home, so he left to give them some privacy. Tripp asks how Chanel is doing. Johnny says she’s not great as it’s a terrible loss for all of them. Wendy says she’s so sorry for what they are going through. Johnny hoped that he and Wendy could still go out for dinner or catch a movie. Wendy informs him that she already ate with Tripp. Johnny asks if he was interrupting something. Wendy admits that he was because when he called to cancel, she made plans with Tripp. Johnny guesses he should leave them to it then, but Tripp gets called in to work at the hospital. Tripp tells Wendy that he had a really great time tonight. Wendy says she did too and they kiss. Tripp suggests tomorrow they can pick up where they left off. Tripp then goes to get ready as Johnny wishes him luck. Johnny tells Wendy that it seems she’s available tonight after all and invites her for dessert.

Xander and Chloe continue kissing. Xander asks if she still wants to take things slow. Chloe responds that this feels right. Xander says he can see where this is going but he doesn’t want to rush her. Chloe asks if he wants to wait. Xander says not even a little bit and they continue kissing. Xander stops and takes his shirt off. Chloe asks why here and if he wants their first time to be on a couch. Xander admits he doesn’t and asks if she wants her bed or his as they continue kissing.

Gwen accepts Dimitri’s invitation to the engagement party and says to put a pause on the proposal. Gwen hopes that doesn’t disappoint him. Dimitri says he can’t be disappointed as they will be together tonight. Dimitri adds that maybe sometime soon, they could be together every evening as he kisses her. Leo tells them to get a room as they continue kissing.

Johnny and Wendy have dessert in the town square.

Tripp works at the hospital as Eric brings Nicole in and says she needs a doctor right away. Nicole explains to Tripp that she’s 2 months pregnant, has a searing pain and a history of miscarriages so this is a high risk pregnancy. Tripp hurries them to an exam room.

Xander and Chloe continue kissing until they decide on going to her bedroom. Xander carries Chloe in as they continue kissing on to her bed and they undress each other then they have sex.

Leo repeats to Gwen that he just wants her to be happy. Gwen thanks him and promises to tell him if anything happens at the engagement party. Gwen goes to get dressed. Leo remarks to himself that he hopes this works out for Gwen because usually when a guy seems too good to be true, he’s no good.

Dimitri exits the Salem Inn and comes across Johnny and Wendy in the town square. Dimitri calls Johnny his favorite young cousin. Johnny introduces Dimitri as the cousin he just found out he had, to Wendy. Johnny points out that they are on a date and hoping for some alone time. Dimitri says he was just stopping by to see if he was coming to the party. Johnny questions what party that would be. Dimitri informs him of the engagement party that Megan is throwing for Stefan and Gabi at the Bistro. Johnny starts to say they have plans but Wendy says she would love a party. Wendy points out that it might be a little weird since she was almost Gabi’s sister-in-law but she really likes her and she’s glad that Gabi is marrying the man she loves. Johnny tells Dimitri that they will see him at the party then.

Colin questions if Sloan is trying to have a baby with Eric just to hold on to him and calls that desperate. Sloan argues that is not what she’s doing. Colin asks if she’s sure. Sloan responds that she loves Eric and feels guilty about costing him the chance to be a dad. Colin points out that she wasn’t sure the baby actually is Eric’s. Sloan agrees and says the point is that Eric desperately wants to be a father. Colin asks if she wants to be a mother. Sloan repeats that Colin is the only family she has left, so she wants her family to grow. Sloan adds that if her child has Eric as a father, they have a real chance at being happy. Colin decides he hopes it happens then and that Nicole’s baby isn’t Eric’s. Sloan responds that either way, she fixed it so that no one will ever know.

Tripp tells Nicole that her vitals all look good but they should get blood work and a sonogram to see what’s going on with the pregnancy. Tripp goes to find the OB on call and leaves the room as they thank him. Eric wonders if Tripp assumes he’s the father. Nicole says that doesn’t matter. Eric agrees and says he’s here for her and the baby. Nicole thanks Eric for being there as she doesn’t know what she would do if she was alone right now. Eric says she doesn’t need to worry about that.

Xander and Chloe kiss in bed after having sex. Chloe says so much for taking it slow. Xander assures that he has no regrets about what they just did. Chloe suggests they do it again as they continue kissing.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


 Dad, I’m, I’m so sorry to hear about Abe. I know how much you, and you and Kayla loved him.

Yeah. I mean, he was pretty much family for most of the town.

Eric, what are you doing here? I wanted to come see you as soon as I heard about Abe. What about Abe?

You hardly touched your burger friend. That’s unusual for you. Yeah. That kind have a big lunch. Is it that, or is it because you had that run-in, in front of the pub, finding out that Gwen’s getting married? That was a bit of a shock. Do you wanna talk about it?

Do you are asking me to marry you officially? Okay. What the hell kind of proposal was that? What was wrong with it? For starters, I don’t see a ring, and I have a rule. If a man isn’t willing to go down on bended knee, he is not a man worth marrying. You know what stuck? You are absolutely right. Forgive me Gwen, let me do this the proper way.

Oh wow. That is a, that’s a large diamond. That is a very, very large diamond. Now allow me a second chance, Gwen Sek, who you do me the great honor of becoming my wife. The answer is a hard no.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

God’s sake, mate. Okay? That thing is huge. The ring, I mean, but I’m sorry, Freo, you’ve wasted the money you worked so hard to inherit because there is no way Gwen is accepting your proposal. Damn it. Matt. How do you say? Hell no. And Almanian, you are aware that I’m proposing to Gwen and not you. So Gwen, what do you say?

Well, well, Gwenny, before you answer that, I have a question of my own that needs answering. Like what? Like what the hell is actually happening here?

When’s getting married to some eurotrash phony? What is it to talk about? Just like that my appetite came back. You know, you don’t have to pretend like you don’t care about her. Chloe, I only care about her because when we were together I ended up really hurting her. I feel good about that. In spite of everything she’s done, Gwen has been through a lot.

She deserves some happiness. And you don’t think the man she’s mirroring can give her that they’ve known each other for all of five seconds? I mean, how can it possibly work out? It’s all too fast. Did you tell Gwen that? I haven’t talked about it. She and I are hardly on good terms. I told him if you done anything to her, Gwen, you’ll answer to me.

So you’re still very protective of her. Gwen’s a grown woman. She can make her own decisions. I just, I don’t want her to make one that she’ll end up regretting for the rest of her life.

If you are here to try and convince me to change my plea, save your breath. I’m gonna take my chance at trial as your lawyer. I’m well aware of your position, so this is just a sisterly visit. Then I came to give you some news. Abe Carver is dead.

Abe is,

he’s dead. They haven’t recovered his body yet, but they have a witness who said he saw hate fall off the docks of the water. Okay. Well, he, he could have survived that, right? It’s very unlikely they said he could have already been injured. Raven and Eli said they found his blood and a hospital bracelet at the scene.

No way. Bye. I can’t, I can’t, I can’t believe this. I, I mean, I, I knew it was a possibility when he went missing, but, but still, I, I didn’t, I didn’t let myself think that I, I’m so sorry, Nicole. I just, I thought you knew.

He, you be, I, I, I, I mean, I, I can’t, I can’t believe this. To be true because he, he was the dearest est man. I He loved you so much. Yeah.

And having him in my life meant so much to me. I, I mean, having someone in, in, in my corner no matter what, and even when I felt all alone, I always, always had Abe.

And no matter how much I disappointed him through the years, he never judged me because you are like a daughtered him. Oh my god.

What am I gonna do without him?

Oh God.

So awful about Abe and the way that he died. Yeah. Such a tragedy. And I feel so bad for his family, my dad and Kayla,

I’m glad to be here with you.

I’m glad to. And thank you for a wonderful dinner. Oh no, this is just fish tacos. Uh, no, just fish tacos is something you get at your local fast food chain. Okay? What you put on this plate made me feel like I was sitting on a cliff overlooking a beach in Mexico. Well, no think you’re not. Maybe not a little thick, but I’ll take it.

Who knows? Maybe we’ll uh, go there together for real sometime. I’d like that. But for now, this, uh, this date was a pretty good placeholder

one. I was just wondering if, uh, to be wrong, to revisit that goodnight kiss. When they got interrupted, you mean when Johnny called to cancel our date? Yeah, that’s what I mean. So what do you think?

I think it would not be wrong at all.

So on a scale of one to 10, Sorry, what? On a scale of one to 10, how worried do I have to be about how protective you are of your ex? Wait, do you really want a number? Well, I’ve spent a good portion of my life in romantic relationships with men who are, um, unavailable or conflicted, or just a plain hot mess.

So I figure we should just get it all out onto the table. Chloe, you should not worry about me and Gwen. So is that a one? It’s a zero. Look, I admit I was thrown to find out that she’s getting married, but no, I’m totally over, Gwen. Okay, that’s, that’s good to hear. However, in the spirit of. Total honesty. I should admit that maybe Sarah will always be the one that got away,

and I will always think of him as a father no matter how long ago things ended with him and mom. Yeah, you too. And we’ll, we’ll video chat later. Okay. I love you too, Brandon.

You already knew about Abe. Theo told him, oh, I can’t imagine what he must be feeling right now. I should check on him. Yeah, I think you should be with your family. Just let me know if you need anything because you’ll be there for me. Thank you for checking on me. It means a lot. Actually it was Sloan’s idea Sloan.

She and I were together when I found out. I just, I mentioned how close you and Abe were and so said I needed to come see you right away. Oh, no, that was nice of her. Maybe she does have a heart, but you probably already knew that since you’re trying to have a baby with her.

No, that, that is the best news I’ve heard all day, Colin, a man is dead. And, and that’s, that’s tragic. I mean, I, I guess I, I didn’t have anything personal against Abe Carver. Uh, you bashed his skull and with a rolling pin in the wrong place, wrong time. And honestly, he was asking for it by marrying into the family that destroyed ours and continuing to support Chanel and their mother after we’d found out what they’d done.

So that makes you happy. I’m all for anything that causes Chanel, Dupree and Pauline and Price to suffer, and now they know what it feels like to lose someone you love. Dammit, Colin, I’m not gonna sit here while you dance on the man’s grave. I’m sorry. I forgot you had an epiphany and decided they’re always forgiven.

They’re on the path to righteousness. Oh goodness. And life

Sloan. Where, where did you go? What are you thinking about? No, I just said, um, I’m, uh, I’m not, All goodness and light at all. Actually, I’m a complete hypocrite.

You don’t have to answer him, Dimitri. Oh, no, no. It’s all right. You’re a friend. Well, he has doubts about my intentions, and I’m willing to address those doubts. Very unconvincingly, I’m sure. Oh, whether you’re convinced or not, Maddie. But, uh, today you don’t get to call me that. Only GW gets to call me. That fine Leo.

The truth of the matter is that I have fallen head over heels in love with this glorious woman, and I wanna marry her because she’s the most interesting and utterly captivating creature that I have ever met. And nothing will make me happier than knowing that she is mine forever and ever, and ever and always.

That’s you addressing my doubts. By laying on the schmalz with a trowel, how gullible do you think we are? Hey, what? What? Hey, look, as someone who knows a thing or two about laying on the schmalz and almost always has an ulterior motive, I could smell this man’s ulterior von Motive from a kilometer away.

Yes. Hello, mother. It’s your son, Dimitri, yet again. Yeah, I think it’s a little odd that for the last month you have done nothing but nonstop nag for me to bag a wife so that you get your hands on this funnel, your fortune, and you will not answer my calls or call me back to tell you exactly what it is that you want to hear.

I asked the risk check woman to marry me. She hasn’t accepted the proposal quite yet, but let’s just say I am very confident that you will. Leo, it is clear that you are a loyal and devoted friend of Gwen’s, and I’m sure it hasn’t been easy having to watch over the years as various men of questionable character have caused her pain.

Yep. Just like the man of questionable character standing right in front of me. But what you don’t realize is that you and I we’re not enemies. We are allies because we want the same exact thing. Oh, please. And that is to see. This rare and, and wondrous woman whom we both love, happy and safe. Now, there is nothing in this world that I want more than to marry you, Gwen.

But if you can’t find it within your heart to grant us your blessing, well then I will withdraw my proposal once.

I realize that you were just trying to get Matty to stop being an absolutely royal pain in the ass, but, um, I will have, you know that I do not need his or any man’s blessing to marry you. Now, yes, of course. I, I didn’t mean to offend you, but it’s just that I know how close you and Leo are, and I would hate to ever put you in the position of having to choose between me and your friend because you know damn well that she would choose me.

Nabi, please stop it, Leo. Now I know that this is all happening very fast. What is, you mean you suddenly getting physical with me and staring into my eyes? No, I mean, somebody falling in love with your BFF and proposing to her. Oh that. Mm-hmm. And if Gwen does decide to be my bride, do you think you could reserve judgment and allow me the opportunity of finally giving her the happiness that she’s earned?

So do you need a number for how worried you should be about me and Sarah? Huh? No. You’ve always been honest with me about her. Just like you’ve always been honest with me about your feelings for Brady. Which is why we’ve been taking it slow. And slow is good, right? Yeah, it is. Uh, it was, but uh, I wanna move on.

That’s fair. I mean, I know what’s going on between us. It’s brand new, but I, it just feels right. It does to me too. I’m so glad to hear you say that. Actually, I was just talking to Nicole about this, huh? Well, I bet she was thrilled. Oh yeah. Really thrilled. Yeah. No, not at all. But I did tell her that even though she’s one of my best friends, she is.

Not gonna talk me out of exploring things with you. So she agreed to back off? No, not at all. But we did talk. She asked me questions, she gave me her opinions. And um, you know, we talked about you like any other relationship, and I feel like that’s a semblance of acceptance. My resignation. What does she ask?

You know, the usual. Okay. Like one of the first things she asked was whether we had slept together. And what did you tell her? I was vague. I’m a lady. I do not kiss and tell. That’s good to know. Wait, does that mean that you’re not gonna tell her about this?

I’ll go get rid of.

So tell how are you a Hypocrites loan?

Come on. You know, you can tell me anything.

I did something that might really hurt Eric. Let me guess. You were screwing around. What’s, no. Why would you say that? Because I know you and I know you’re not exactly a one man kind of girl. Yeah, it was with Eric. It’s different. He’s, he’s just not like any of the other guys I’ve been with. So you finally found someone you’re serious about.

Yeah. I love him. And now you are worried that you’ve done something that’s gonna come between you. How bad boy is it? Oh, it doesn’t. It doesn’t matter. Simon, come on. Your boyfriend would be the first one to tell you that confession is good for this whole. So tell Brother Colin, how are you sinned against Eric?

Eric’s ex-wife? Nicole Walker is pregnant and the child could be his.

I know you think my relationship with Sloan is a bad idea. No, stop. Sorry. I am sorry, I, you don’t owe me an explanation. Well, it seems like you need one. Well, I,

I was just thrown off guard when Sloan blurted out that you two were trying to have a baby. Okay. Was, I mean, was she just trying to get a rise outta me? No, I think it’s more than that. I think she’s excited about the idea.

Okay, well, having a baby, was it saloon’s idea? We came to it together. Slung saw, she saw how disappointed I was when we found out the baby was DJ’s.

You were I, I mean, uh, I know that you’ve always wanted to be a father. I just wasn’t sure, especially since we both know how complicated this would’ve been, right? But I know somehow we would’ve made it work.

Have to admit a part of me was hope, hoping that baby was mine.

Oh, ah, are you all right?


So, so you’re telling me that this Nicole woman is pregnant with your boyfriend’s baby and she doesn’t know that it’s his, I said it might be his, it could still be EJ Damir, right? Because neither of them were actually tested. I swabbed my own cheek and that’s what the lab got sent. Interesting. So the only thing that we do know is that.

You are not the father of this child. I’m glad you find this so amusing. Come what you want me to feel? Sorry for you? You got what you wanted then you, Eric, is free to be with you. Yeah, but I feel terrible about it. Not terrible enough to tell the truth. Look, when I found out that Nicole was pregnant, I started thinking about everyone I’ve lost.

Mom, dad, and now you. I’m right here. For how long, Colin? You’re going away to prison. We see. Anyway, the point is, is I was terrified of losing Eric to Nicole cuz if he finds out that she’s carrying his child, then missed, a good guy will go running him back to her. Eric’s always wanted to be a father and he and Nicole have like just decades of history, so it’s bad.

So what you were doing was leveling the playing field. You did what you had to do to hold onto someone you love. There’s no shame in that. Sloan. Oh, there’s shame and deception, Colin. Just let it go. Enjoy the victory after everything that we’ve lost. You deserve a win. Yeah, I suppose I do. Just trying to make up for what I did.

You mean for taking away a baby from Eric? That might be his. And how are you gonna make up for that? By giving him a baby that we know for sure is his.

Oh, yeah. Okay. It’s, it’s gone. Are you sure you’re okay? You know what, I don’t, I don’t know what the pain was, but it’s passed. Well, do you want to go get it checked out? Oh. No, it was probably the peanut butter and onion sandwich I had for lunch. And the butter and onion. Yeah, with a cinnamon raisin bagel.

Oh, that sounds delicious. I know. Gray beans. I would explain it. Yeah. Ow. I’m gonna go find ej. No, no, no. You’re not gonna find him. Why? Well, he’s hasn’t been here for a while. That’s why I was so upset when he came in earlier. Where is he? I dunno. He went away on a last minute business trip and I haven’t heard from him since.

He hasn’t called, well he sent the occasional text. Where is he? Did he say when he was coming back? No. What the hell is he up to? Is he bailing out on you in this pregnancy? You know what, I don’t. I don’t wanna talk about it. Okay. Oh God. I’m taking you to the hospital. Come on.


so not so long ago you wanted my head on a spike. Now you want my blessing to marry Gwen. Not to mention you’re warming up my shoulders. I was rightfully upset with you for costing me that emerald. But things have changed now. Gwen is the only treasure that matters to me. Oh, well that is awfully sweet, isn’t it?

Leo, in a dime store Saccharin kind of way. Aaliyah, please can we put our differences behind us? You’re clearly very important to the woman that I love and therefore, Very important to me. Okay, fine. Fine. You said all the right things, albeit in a very insincere way. So it all rang hollow, but maybe that is me just being overly cynical and mistrustful because my parents treated me like crap.

Consequently, I have never felt respected. Love didn’t have serious self-esteem issues. Oh, for God’s sake. Dimitri’s not your shrink, Matty. Well, forgive me for being open, honest, and authentic. And if Gwen had, let me finish, what I was going to say was,

I will allow this marriage against my better judgment. Wow. Wow. How very generous of you. Indeed. Thank you very much for your grudging permission, Matty. And might I remind you both that I have not given Dimitri Nancy yet, and given that you two have now kissed and made up, you know what? Maybe you two should just ride off into the sunset together.

You know what? I’m pretty sure that we are the better couple now, Gwen, I love you. I love you so much, but you don’t have to answer me right now. Tonight my mother is throwing an engagement party for another happy couple. My Uncle Stephan and his Gabriela, and nothing would make me happier than having you there on my arm.

Who knows? Maybe the romantic occasion will inspire you to accept this ring.

Johnny, I I thought you were staying with Chanel. Yeah, yeah. No, uh, Paulina came home, so I, I left to give him some privacy. How are Chanel doing? Not great. It’s a terrible loss for, for all of them. For, yeah. I’m so sorry for what they’re going through. Me too. Uh, but look, I was, uh, I was hoping that maybe you and I could still go out, grab some dinner, maybe catch a late movie I already ate.

I made fish tacos. Yeah. Oh, oh, I’m, I’m sorry. Was I, uh, was I interrupting something? Actually, you were, when you called and canceled. I made plans with Trip. Well, I better just, uh, leave you to him then. Great, great. What, what is it? Dr. Sitz has the flu. I had to go cover her shift. Like I, I really don’t wanna leave.

I had a really great time tonight. Me too.

Maybe tomorrow we can pick up where we left off Maybe. Johnny,

good luck.

Well, uh, it seems like you’re available tonight after all. Look, I know trip made dinner, so, uh, What do you say about getting some dessert?


uh, Still wanna take things slow. Well, like you said, this feels right. It does. But I can see where this is going and I just, I don’t wanna rush you. Sorry. Do you wanna wait? Not even a little bit.

Whoa. What are you doing? Oh, I’m sorry. Did you wanna take my shirt off? No, I just went, why here? Uh, do you want her first time to be on the couch? No, I don’t. So, uh, you bed online.

Yes. Yes. Does that mean No. No. Wait, now I’m lost. As am I? Yes. To the party pause on the marriage proposal. Fair enough. I’m sorry if that disappoints you. Knowing that we’ll be together this evening, how can I possibly be disappointed and who knows? Sometime soon we’ll be together. Every evening,

get a room. You two just left this one.

Oh, what’s going on there, buddy? Oh, what? We asked for three scoops. I know you ordered, uh, strawberry, which whatever. I ordered chocolate because I’m not a monster. And the cookies and cream in the middle, we’re supposed to be sharing. Okay. Mm-hmm. I admit the sharing gene doesn’t exactly run in my family, but I could learn, are you sacrificing your cherry?

Well, that’s not much. I like you. And for the record, this is my first bite of cookies and cream. I won’t go beyond my half. Oh, you better not. I’m watching you Damara. Right. I got your shit.

Uh, trip. Hey, hey, hey guys. What’s going on, Nicole? She needs to doctor right away. What’s wrong? Uh, uh, I’m two months pregnant and I, I have a siring pain right here. I have a history of miscarriages. And this is a high risk pregnancy. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Okay. Look, Let’s get you to an exam room. Uh, see what’s happening tomorrow this way.

Okay. We didn’t, we didn’t make it very far. I’m working on it far to either bedroom. Sorry. I’m. Kind of eager. Okay. E eager is good. So your room, I didn’t make my bed and my room is super messy. Okay, well then let’s go make a mess of mine.

What do you think? I think Count Chola doesn’t deserve you looking that hot tonight. Come on. I thought you were gonna give him a chance. I am. I will. I But Gwynnie, I’ve said it before. It bears repeating. I just want you to be happy. Thank you, Matt. But listen, if anything juicy happens at the party tonight, I promise I will.

Text Lady Whistleblower post taste. You better.

Oh, I hope this one works out for me, buddy, because usually when a guy seems too good to be true, he’s no good at he coming.

Well, well, well, if it isn’t my favorite young cousin, oh, well, I am flattered Wendy Shin. This is my cousin who I just found out I had Dimitri Vaughn Locher. Nice to meet you. My pleasure is all mine. Looks like you’ve made some damage out of that Sunday. We’re on a date hoping for a little alone time.

Johnny. What we’re family, right. We can be honest with each other. Of course. I was just stopping by to see if you were coming to the party and what, what party might that be? The engagement party that my mother is throwing for your Uncle Stephan and Gabby Hernandez. It’s just at the bistro. Oh, well that sounds great.

But our plans are, I love a party. Do you wanna go? Sure. I mean, it might be a little weird since I was almost Gabby’s sister-in-law. Oh. But, um, I really like her and I’m glad that she’s marrying the man she loves. Wonderful. Hmm. Well, I guess that settles it We’ll, uh, see you at the party.

So wait, you, you are trying to have a baby with Eric just to hold onto him. That seems a bit desperate. That is not what I am doing. Are you sure? I love Eric and I feel guilty about costing him the chance to be a dad even though you are not sure that Nicole’s baby is actually his right. I. No. I mean, odds are it’s e J’s baby.

I mean, those two are actually together, you know? And Eric and Nicole, they hooked up once when they were both highest kites. But anyway, the point is, is that Eric desperately wants to be a father and you wanna be a mother. Yeah. You and I are. All our family has left. Of course. I want our family to grow, and if Eric is the father, then my.

Son or my daughter, she has a real chance at being happy,

and I hope it happens. I hope you have Eric’s baby and. Nicole’s baby isn’t his. Either way, I’ve fixed it so that neither Nicole or Eric or anyone else will ever know

your vitals all look good. Uh, but we should get some blood work in the sonogram, see what’s going on with the pregnancy. I’m gonna step out and find the be on call. So sit tight. Okay? Okay, thanks. Hang in there. Thanks.

I think the trip assumes that I’m the, oh, it’s that it doesn’t matter, right? What matters is that I’m here for you. The baby.

Thank you Eric for being here. I, I don’t know what I would do if I was alone right now. You don’t need to worry about that.

Wow. Well, so much for taking it slow. I can honestly say no. I don’t have a single regret about anything, just.

Do you? Maybe we should do it again and find out.

Transcript provided by and proofread by Suzanne

Jack: Have I told you you are a terrific dancer?

[ Diane chuckling ]

Diane: Only when I’m following your lead.

Jack: This evening’s been perfect.

Diane: Yeah.

Jack: Almost.

Diane: Well, it’s a shame that our son feels so alienated from his wife that he needs to get a room here.

Jack: Well, hopefully, it’s just for one night. In the meantime, I have so enjoyed this celebration of your new position.

Diane: Jack, I have so much to be thankful for, all at once. I feel like the two of us can conquer the world.

Jack: We will. I promise, together, you and I are unstoppable.

[ Diane chuckling ]

Diane: Yeah.

[ Michael sharply exhaling ]

Lauren: Is something the matter?

Michael: No, no, no, no. It’s just, uh, I was setting the stage for our romantic rendezvous and I received an unexpected visitor.

[ Lauren chuckling ]

Lauren: Well, that explains why I had an extra hour to kill before I arrived.

Michael: Sorry about that.

Lauren: Well, who was it?

Michael: The not-so-late, great Phyllis Summers.

Lauren: You saw Phyllis? Oh, my god. How– how was she? How did she seem?

Michael: Oh, you know, same old Phyllis. She was wearing a trench coat and dark glasses to avoid being recognized.

Lauren: I would’ve given anything to see her. Oh, my god. It must have been just so surreal.

Michael: Well, that’s one word for it. Behold, behold.

Lauren: What?

Michael: What your best pal walked in on, not to mention, myself, barely clothed.

[ Lauren laughing ]

Lauren: This is so romantic. The candles, the flowers, and ooh, look at this. My favorite Champagne. You put a lot of effort into this.

Michael: You are so worth it.

Lauren: Ah, and then Phyllis crashes this?

Michael: Yeah. Where she wiped out an entire platter of chocolate-covered strawberries.

[ Lauren chuckling ] Uh, well, you must get an appetite running away from the law.

Lauren: Yes, and look, I really want to partake in all of this, but come here. First, I want to hear everything that you and Phyllis talked about.

[ Michael chuckling ]

Lauren: Have you figured out a way for her to come home without her life being wrecked?

Summer: Kyle. Kyle! [ Sighing ] Where is he?

[ Summer sighing ]

Kyle: We’re completely in sync. Just proof we were meant to be. And everything we went through in the past, breaking up, getting back together again, breaking up again.

Summer: Getting back together again.

Kyle: It’s just proof that once we finally made it permanent, we were destined to last forever.

[phone chimes]

Phyllis: (via text) Spoke with Michael. May finally see a way out of all this.

Summer: This is all your fault.

Kyle: Wow. That was–

Audra: Something we both needed.

Kyle: Apparently.

[ Kyle grunting ]

Audra: Hey.

Kyle: Um, hm.

Audra: Mm, everything good?

Kyle: Yeah. Yeah, definitely.

Audra: Listen, this was something really fun that happened. No more, no less. So, if you’re thinking about making, you know, a smooth escape, like, that’s cool with me. Like, I get it. No pressure from me.

Kyle: I don’t want to go home. From the very first touch,

[ Summer sighing ]

Nick: This a good time? I’ll take that as a yes.

Summer: Dad, how are you after everything that happened?

Nick: Oh. You mean with Cameron Kirsten? How’d you hear about that?

Summer: Faith told me when she was letting me know that she was headed back to Michigan. Oh, my god, it’s horrible. Look, I know that this might sound bad, but I’m glad that he’s dead.

Nick: That’s not bad at all. Cameron meant business. He was determined to take out as many of us as possible.

Summer: In a sewer? I–

Nick: It’s just like his mind. Sitting over in that cell, rotting away, obsessing about Sharon. I guess he thought this would bring things full circle.

Summer: Are Sharon and Faith really okay?

Nick: They’re doing the best they can considering the traumatic experience they went through.

Summer: It’s so scary. I mean, if that had happened to Harrison I’d–

Nick: Summer, listen, we’re dealing with it, all right? We’re all tough. We’re determined to get through it.

Summer: How’s everything else? You okay?

Nick: I don’t know if you heard this or not, but I’m taking some time away from Newman Enterprises. It’s not my call, but with everything that’s happened, maybe it’s for the best. Also, Sally lost the baby.

Summer: Dad, when?

Nick: The day Faith got kidnapped. Adam was with her. I didn’t even know about it until after it happened.

Summer: That is so awful. I– I know how much this baby meant to you.

Nick: Yeah, it’s a lot to deal with all at once.

Summer: How is Sally doing?

Nick: Not great.

Summer: I– I’m so sorry.

Nick: Thanks. So, I know you never would have called me over at this hour unless there was something wrong. What’s going on?

Summer: Oh, I don’t know, Dad. I– I can’t pile anything else onto you.

Nick: Hey, I’m your dad. Pile away.

Summer: No, seriously. It’s okay, let’s talk next week when all of this isn’t so fresh.

Nick: Summer, you’re anxious, and something’s going on, so talk to me.

Summer: I don’t even know where to start. God. [ sobbing ] I have messed up my marriage so bad.

Nick: How?

Summer: Kyle wants to separate. He asked me to move out.

Nick: I’m so sorry, Summer. I’m sorry. All right, I want you to talk to me, okay? Tell me everything.

[ Audra moaning ]

Michael: I laid out a scenario for what Phyllis could expect, legally speaking, if she were to surrender.

Lauren: With you representing her?

Michael: That would be the plan.

Lauren: Can you keep her out of prison?

[ Michael sighing ]

Michael: There are no guarantees.

Lauren: I knew you were gonna say that.

Michael: Look, her best shot is to come in from the cold and at least let me try.

Lauren: But she has to be terrified to come all the way back here and then wind up in a cell.

Michael: Well, she is, but her only other option is equally grim.

Lauren: Right. Looking over her shoulder, the rest of her life is no choice.

Michael: Or she could put her faith in me, which seems a no-brainer.

Lauren: Honey, she’s scared.

Michael: As well she should be. Do you know what she told me? “Let me think about it.” Before she ate the last strawberry and vamoosed. Now, all I can do is, wait. Wait!

Lauren: I hope she makes the right choice because I really miss my friend.

Michael: Me too. You know, I’ve known Phyllis has been alive for a while, but seeing her in person…

Lauren: How did she seem? I mean, she’s been through so much.

Michael: That’s exactly what you said. She’s worried and afraid and hiding behind a big old wall of bravado.

Lauren: Hm. That’s our Phyllis.

Michael: It was incredible to see her, but at the same time, uh, it was heartbreaking.

Lauren: I wish I could go back in time and just talk her out of that insane scheme.

Michael: No, no, no, listen to me. Phyllis got herself into that jam, and I intend to get her out of it, but she’s gonna have to at least pay for some of her crimes. And her life will never be the same.

Lauren: Don’t be so sure. Diane played dead for many years. Came back and look at her life now.

[ Diane chuckling ]

Diane: Another toast? How many is that?

Jack: I’ve lost count.

[ Diane chuckling ]

Diane: That’s my favorite number.

Jack: To your resilience. No matter what life throws you, you never let it keep you down.

Diane: I’ll drink to that.

Jack: I mean that. I really do admire that you have your problems like anyone else, your insecurities, your worries, your frustrations. You never let it derail you. Not Ashley’s resistance and ugliness, not Phyllis eluding the law after the abominable things she did to you.

Diane: Well, one thing that does worry me is that Kyle came here to sleep to get even farther away from Summer, it– it hurts my heart.

Jack: Yeah, mine too.

Diane: Yeah. But still, you and I had some steep mountains to climb to get to this point and I– you know, I have to hope that things will work out for them, too.

Jack: I really believe they will. But they may have to learn the hard way about love and forgiveness.

Diane: You know, we’re lucky, Jack. One good thing about getting older is that we’ve been around long enough to know that struggle is just a part of life.

Jack: Thinking about the kids again?

Diane: Yeah. You know, you take the bad with the good and you cherish what you have when you have it. It’s a lesson I failed to learn ’til I had lost everything. Or I should say I threw it away with both hands, but I was– I was younger then, I– I made a lot of mistakes.

Jack: Didn’t we all?

Diane: Yeah. But having you back in my life, it, uh, it makes me want to be better. To– to be a better person. I mean, I’m so grateful for every moment that we have and I’m– I’m– I’m not taking any of it for granted.

Jack: I think luck, I think fate play a part in all of this. How lucky we are that life brought us back together when we could really be partners.

Diane: Yeah. I’ll try not to ruin things this time.

[ Diane chuckling ]

Jack: No, I think we are both walking into this marriage with our eyes wide open. You are not perfect. God knows I am not perfect–

Diane: Oh, hey, hey, hey, watch what you say about my fiancé. He’s pretty perfect. Okay, can you, um, can you allow me one moment of pettiness? I take great pride in knowing that Phyllis and Ashley are still stuck in the past. They’re still dwelling on old grievances. I actually feel sorry for them.

Jack: You know what? I don’t find that petty at all. I absolutely agree.

Kyle: You hungry? Maybe you want to order room service or go out.

Audra: I have to be honest with you. I really do have a huge day tomorrow. I’m taking the reins at Newman Media while, uh, Nate fills in for Nick.

Kyle: Hm.

Audra: So, I actually need you to make that smooth exit we talked about.

Kyle: Oh, you’re kicking me out. I feel so used.

Audra: Listen, I like pillow talk as much as the next girl, okay? Tonight, however–

Kyle: Your mind is on work.

Audra: Yes.

Kyle: I get it.

Audra: Look, if I misled you in any way, I–

Kyle: No, no, not at all. You’ve been very upfront about everything. I appreciate the honesty. It was fantastic.

Audra: Well, I’m glad you feel that way.

Kyle: So, I suppose I should get dressed.

Audra: Hm. You can do that. After we shower.

Kyle: Ooh, I think that’s one hell of a great idea.

Nick: I mean, I’m sorry, you are struggling with this. I cannot believe your mother faked her own death and has put you and Daniel through this. You don’t deserve it. Where is she now?

Summer: I don’t know. She won’t say. She’s trying to protect me and Daniel, and herself.

Nick: Yeah, probably more herself.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: She did offer to turn herself in if it would save my marriage, but– but I couldn’t let her do that. And it wouldn’t have helped anyway. We need to keep searching for a way for her to come home without being arrested for Stark’s murder. Dad, what are you thinking?

Nick: I– I mean, what am I thinking? Uh, I’m– I’m grateful that your mother’s still alive.

Summer: Only now you could kill her?

Nick: My feelings are complicated. I cannot understand why she’s making you feel responsible for solving problems that she created.

Summer: What else is new? Though, if I’m being fair, and if we’re being fair to her, a lot of this is Stark’s fault. And not to mention the fact that Diane faked her death and tried to pin it on other people and it never caught up to her, so I know mom’s logic was really, really screwy, but I do see that there was some justice to it.

Nick: Sweetheart, I know you love your mother, but we’re also talking about Kyle’s mother.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: You’re right. I tried to protect my mom. And it turns out it might have cost me my marriage.

Lauren: How many times have we said that Phyllis is her own worst enemy?

Michael: Too many to count.

Lauren: I mean, since the day we met her, it has been one ghastly mistake after another.

Michael: If we were ever asked to print out a timeline of all her misdeeds, our printer would explode.

[ Lauren laughing ]

Lauren: Isn’t that the truth? And yet, god help me, I adore her.

[ Lauren chuckling ]

Michael: Yeah. Likewise.

Lauren: What do you think it would take for Phyllis to turn over a new leaf, huh?

Summer: When we thought Mom was dead, I– I couldn’t even stand to be in the same room as Kyle. He kept on shielding Diane and he– he wouldn’t even accept the possibility that his mom had murdered mine. And– and it made me so angry. But then suddenly there was mom. And she had killed Stark, and she was asking me not to tell anyone that she was alive.

Nick: Including Kyle.

Summer: Especially Kyle. Because of course he would have gone straight to the police. And– and Mom needed time to be able to prove that it was self-defense. And I went along with it. I froze Kyle out to protect mom, even though it meant prolonging his mom’s suffering. And I– I knew that it was horrible even when I was doing it. But I just– I couldn’t risk anybody finding out the truth before she’d come up with a plausible defense.

Nick: And the longer this dragged on, the more distance it created between you and Kyle.

Summer: [ Sighing ] Dad, it was such a disaster. Kyle was so upset that Diane was in jail, and there I was, and I had information that could have gotten her out and I didn’t do that. I put Mom first. I put her ahead of Kyle’s feelings. Ahead of our marriage, and… ahead of what I knew was right. But I had convinced myself that– that I didn’t have a choice, that I– I had to do what I did. He won’t even look at me now and I– I don’t know what to do. God. [ Sobbing ] How do I fix this?

Nick: Oh, my god. [ Sighing ] Your mother, um… she put you in a terrible position, Summer. All right? Now, I have to believe that Kyle’s eventually gonna see that. He loves you. He’s gonna see what this is doing to you and how much you regret hurting him.

Summer: I– I’d like to think that. That Kyle’s just reacting right now, but… we have such a long history. And it’s taken us a long time to build up this trust. And I destroyed it.

Kyle: I’m glad we ran into each other.

Audra: Mm-hmm. So am I. I had a fabulous time and I’m sure I’m gonna have a great night’s sleep. And I’m sure you will, too.

Kyle: No doubt.

Audra: If this happens again, great. If not, I had a sensational time.

Kyle: Agreed. Good night, Audra.

Audra: Good night.

[ Audra sighing ]

Jack: Hey.

Kyle: Hey. Uh, what– what are you doing here?

Jack: Oh, well, we’re just headed home after a lovely evening.

Diane: What about you?

Jack: We don’t mean to pry. We saw you headed upstairs earlier and, uh, assumed that you needed a room because of the situation with Summer.

Kyle: I– I needed to get out of the way from the tension in the house.

Diane: A nice hot shower to clear your head.

Kyle: Uh, yeah. Yeah. It, um, it helped, but I realized staying away from the house isn’t going to solve anything. I want to be near Harrison when he wakes up.

Jack: Everyone needs to get away sometimes.

Michael: What would it take to rehabilitate Phyllis?

[ Lauren laughing ]

Lauren: Can people change that much?

Michael: Hmm. I did. Prison helped.

Lauren: Yeah, but with Phyllis, she’s been there, done that. I mean, even hitting rock bottom didn’t exactly have an effect on her.

Michael: Well, maybe that’s the answer, in the end. You know, Phyllis is Phyllis. Maybe there’s no saving the woman.

Lauren: You don’t believe that. And neither do I. Of course, people can evolve.

Michael: People, yes. But Phyllis…

Lauren: Well… [ Lauren clicking her tongue ] …If she wanted something badly enough, maybe it’s just finding the right motivation.

Nick: Summer, I understand why you’re worried this rift between you and Kyle is permanent, but I really believe you can get through it if it’s something you both want.

Summer: That’s the thing. He’s so mad at me that I– I don’t think that Kyle wants to fix this. This might really be the end for us.

Nick: I wish I had the, uh, just the right words that would help you feel more hopeful.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: It’s okay. God, my stomach is in knots. My brain keeps telling me to fight for my family, but I just feel so lost right now.

Nick: I’m sorry Phyllis put this in motion. She was asking far too much of you.

Summer: Right, but I could have said no. And I did. I told her that it was horrible of her to put me in this position. All because she hates Diane, I–

Nick: And what did she say to that?

Summer: That I was right to resent her. That she felt awful. But she couldn’t handle being locked up and I couldn’t handle her going on the run. It would have been like she died all over again.

Nick: I wish you’d come to me sooner so I could help.

Summer: Yeah, I really wish that I had too, but once I confided in Daniel and he started telling everybody, it just– it unraveled so quickly. [ Summer sighing ] I know that Mom is Stark’s victim… but I cannot help but hold her responsible for this mess.

Nick: As well you should.

Summer: You know, I really wish that I could just be happy that Mom was alive. I really do. But everything with Kyle is so bad and it’s just getting worse and it’s all because she has this grudge against Diane. I mean, I am so stupid. I should’ve never agreed to keep this secret. It’s come with too high of a price.

Nick: Look, I know you love your mother, but there’s always a trade-off with her.  [ Nick sighing ] I mean, she is a cyclone. She mows down everything in her path.

Summer: Including my marriage, apparently. I– I seriously don’t know if Kyle’s ever gonna forgive me or if this separation is gonna turn into a divorce. [ Summer sighing ] And the worst part is after all of this– after all of this, we don’t– we don’t even have a way to bring Mom home without her being arrested for Stark’s murder. So I just– I feel like I’ve already lost them both. God. I’m just scared that no matter how much I try, there’s– there’s really not a way for me to make this right. [ Summer sighing ]

[ Michael laughing ]

Michael: I love your optimism. It’s one of my favorite traits of yours.

Lauren: And I am banking on your problem-solving abilities.

Michael: You make me sound so shady.

Lauren: Well…

Michael: All right, fine, fine, I have a gift.

Lauren: You do. You are a brilliant attorney. You come up with solutions that no one else can even think of, even if they’re not always…

Michael: Uh-huh, according to guidelines.

Lauren: Hmm. You are remembered by the rules that you break.

Michael: Who said that?

Lauren: MacArthur. And he should know.  And I have no doubt that you’re going to help Phyllis.

Michael: No, I–I intend to as long as she doesn’t disappear on me, but she’s gonna have to meet me halfway.

Lauren: And what does that look like?

Michael: Phyllis is gonna have to temper her expectations. Even if–if I get rid of the murder rap,  she’s still facing a boatload of charges. And there are gonna be repercussions.  It’s absurd to think otherwise.

Lauren: Well, if anyone, anyone can get through to her,  it’s you.  I have faith.

Michael: Oh. Oh, I see what you’re doing. You make it sound like flattery, but that’s a challenge.

Lauren: [ Laughing] Well, then consider the gauntlet thrown. You know what? Forget about that.  Forget about Phyllis, forget about everything, except the two of us in our own private oasis.  I’m so proud of you. And I love you so much. And I cannot wait for us to start a romantic evening. [ Chuckling]

Michael: More?

Lauren: No.

Diane:  I’m glad that you were able to realize that you need to put Harrison first.

Jack: And I second that.

Diane: Yeah. And Kyle, I am– I am so sorry for my lapse in judgment earlier.  I shouldn’t have exaggerated how upset he was. I just– I just wanted to bring you and Summer closer together, and I know it wasn’t my place, and I shouldn’t have done it. And I promise you I will never do it again.

Kyle: Mom, I don’t want to discuss this right now.  See you at the house.

Jack: He seem a little off to you?

Diane: Off how?

Jack:  I don’t know, out of sorts, a little nervous.

Diane: He seems exhausted, but he is under a lot of stress, Jack.

Jack: Yeah, you’re right. I’m making too much of it.

Diane: Yeah, I just hate seeing him like this. I wish there was something I could do to help, but apparently what I did made things worse.

Jack: I think our son had a good idea that we should table all of this right now. Besides, I want to leave on a high from our incredible evening together.

Diane: Okay. That works.

Audra: “Kyle Abbott named CEO of Marchetti as Jabot acquires legendary Italian couturier.” Hmm. Oh, nice pic.

Nick: Feel better?

Summer: No. [ Sighing ] Okay, a little. Look, don’t laugh, but the only other person that I’ve even been able to talk about any of this with is… Diane.

Nick: Not laughing.

Summer: She even went to Kyle and tried to reason with him, but it definitely did not work.

Nick: [ Clicks tongue] Summer, this is one of those times where you’re just gonna have to be really, really patient.  You know, let things play out.  Things are gonna have to get worse before they get better, I bet.  But you gotta give Kyle some space, more space than you’re probably comfortable with, but when he’s ready, he’ll come to you to talk.

Summer: And I’ll listen this time.  I’ve got this really bad habit of trying to argue my point and prove that I’m right instead of doing the whole give-and-take thing. I don’t know where I got that from.

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know. It’s a mystery.

Summer: [ Chuckling ] Look… Uh, I’m sorry that I didn’t come to you sooner.  Like you said, if I had, maybe I wouldn’t even be in this fix, but I could be in a whole different fix entirely. One that wouldn’t be so destructive. [ Chuckling]

Nick: [ Clicks tongue] I get it.  Your mom can be very convincing. And she’s not above really slathering on the guilt, especially when it suits her.  But that’s why I think eventually Kyle’s gonna  come around because he understands  how your mom likes to manipulate everyone.

Summer: Don’t we all?

Nick: As far as coming to me sooner, don’t worry about it. With all the turmoil you’ve been going through,  I get it.

Summer: I wish that Kyle could hear you say that.

Nick: Well, I could talk to Kyle if you want, you know. Just the two of us.  It may not work, but it might be worth a shot.

Michael: [ Laughing and sighing]

Audra: [Sighing]

[ phone chimes ]

Nate: (via text) Ready for tomorrow? Our worlds are about to change.

Audra: Maybe mine already has.

Diane: [Laughing]

Jack: Nick.

Nick: Jack, Diane.

Diane: Ah, good to see you, Nick.

Nick: You, too.

Summer: Do you guys know where Kyle is? Ha– have you seen him?

Jack: Actually, we just saw him at the club.  He’s on his way here now.

Summer: Oh, good. Good.

Nick: All right, I’m gonna take off. If you need me, you call me. I don’t care how late it is, okay?

Summer: Thank you, Dad, I will.

Nick: All right. Good night, guys.

Jack and Diane: Good night.

Jack: If there’s anything we can do to help, anything at all?

Summer: It’s okay.

Diane: Um, you want us to wait up with you until Kyle gets here?

Summer: No, you guys go ahead.

Diane: All right, good night.

Jack: Get some rest.

Summer: Thanks. [ Sighing]

[ Door slams shut]

hi. Hi. Hi. Uh, come on in. Well, um… …this is a pleasant surprise. What can I do for you? Well, you tell me. You invited me over here, didn’t you? Oh, god. Did I misread the text? Aunt elizabeth. Good. You’re right on time for your date. You son of a bitch. You set this whole thing up, didn’t you?

[ Pounding on door ] Austin: Ava! Come on, now. Open up.

[ Pounding continues ] We need to talk before you get us both killed. Hey. Yeah. You okay? I… I can’t believe thisis our last night together for possibly three years. It just feels wrong. It feels so wrong. It’s the only choice I could make. I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror. I couldn’t — I couldn’t be a father to — to scout. I couldn’t even hold my head up if I did otherwise. I know it was short notice when I asked you to stop by.

[ Chuckles ] And you brought the baby! Yeah. Oh, he’s so adorable. Thank you. He’s really growing, right? Yeah, um, I just came from work, and ace was supposed to get picked up by spencer at daycare, but he had other plans, so… that’s actually one of the reasons why I called you over here, um, because there’s something that I think that we should discuss. Okay. Um, what about? You and spencer. And how you plan to co-parent ace. You and joss came here alone? We sure did. There was a bar fight. The cops had to come. We got carded. And hopefully this visit will be less eventful. Esme certainly picked the right spot to score a black market phone. I’m just hoping that we can find a witness who can confirm that oz haggerty sold her one. Trina, this whole thing is convoluted. We already had the evidence that we needed. Yeah, but I’m talking about real proof. Maybe a-a bartender or a waitress saw oz negotiating with esme, maybe even giving her the phone. You don’t feel that this is a waste of time? We need something real, not some made-up evidence that your uncle victor left you. Have a little faith. Well, forgive me for not being overly optimistic about getting help or cooperation from a bunch of lowlifes. Oh, maybe you’re the wrong person to be asking. Well, to us and a well-deserved night out… where no one will ever find us. Oh, no. I hate to disappoint you.

[ Sighs ]

I do not want to see you right now. I don’t recall offering you a drink. Oh, I-I think a drink is the least that you owe me after what I did for you today. Oh, you mean scaring me to death? Making me believe that my child had been kidnapped? No, I mean staging an incident that got the nanny out of the way without “a,” getting avery kidnapped for real, and, “b,” not getting your nanny killed. Because make no mistake, ava, if mason had thought for even one second that pilar was somehow inhibiting your ability to spy on sonny… pilar would meet with a very unfortunate accident.

[ Sighs ] And that’s just not something I can live with. So, yeah, I made the call. I thought it was better for pilar to lose her job than lose her life. Bottoms up. What the hell have you gotten me into? Spencer is ace’s brother, not his parent. Ace’s actual father, nikolas, decided to run away rather than face justice for keeping me prisoner. That leaves me ace’s only parent, right? From a legal standpoint, you are absolutely correct. But the day-to-day realities of raising a child? Sometimes they’re not so cut and dry. In fact, if I can remember correctly, they’re exhausting and — and — and messy. Believe me, I-I get it. You know, I’ve been there. I’ve been in your situation, and I know what it feels like to have somebody who’s really supporting you in it, 100%. Yeah. And for me, that was my ex-husband, marcus taggert.

[ Chuckles ] And for you, that appears to be spencer. He ‘s clearly extremely devotedto his baby brother. Yes, um, spencer does care a great deal about ace, but when it comes to actual caregiving, sometimes spencer is available and accommodates. Other times not. I mean, it’s like a constant negotiation. That’s why I was thinking that it might be a good idea for you and spencer to take a parenting class. Together. Wow. This place has not changed at all. I still can’t believe that the two of you came here like undercover agents, trying to get dirt on esme. Yeah, and here we are again. Great minds think alike. Only this time with backup. In case you guys start another barroom brawl?

[ Laughs ] Technically, we didn’t start it. Alright, never mind. Never mind. I’m just happy that we both have backup, so… is this the kind of place that you’re used to, dex?

[ Scoffs ] I’ve seen my fair share of places like this, especially in the service. They’re all over the world. They have their advantages. Well, hopefully we can find something real that ties esme to haggerty. “Something real”? Mm-hmm. As in…not fake? Like the evidence your uncle victor left you. It just kind of came out. Listen, I get why you would want to use that, alright? We all know that esme is guilty. That’s kind of my point. It’s not considered framing someone if the person actually did the crime. And I know that my uncle victor was insane, but he was also a pro. The evidence he left me would hold up to scrutiny. And I just feel like we’re wasting a lot of time when we already have what we need to take esme down. So, you’re saying you kept the fake evidence? I wonder what those four are up to. Hey, you know what? I don’t give a damn what they’re doing here. I’m off duty and with my girl at the bar of her choice. Mm-hmm. As far as I’m concerned, we’re the only ones here. Okay. Okay? I should have done more. I feel so responsible. Hey, carly. Carly, we’re not — you don’t understand. No, no, we’re not doing this tonight. Listen to me. Michael came to me. He wanted me to flip on sonny. He had proof. He had proof. And he said if I testified against sonny that the feds would probably back off and they could keep you out of it all together. But I didn’T. I couldn’t do it, drew. I just couldn’t do it. Because it’s not who you are. I would never expect that. But you’re not culpable. You’re not. All you did was tell me about the plan to merge elq and aurora. I’m the one who acted on insider information. I’m guilty. You’re not. Sonny’s not. I mean, well, sonny’s guilty of a whole bunch of things, but he’s not — I don’t care about sonny. My going to prison has nothing to do with sonny. It has everything to do with me. You’re going to prison to protect me, and I don’t know if I can live with that. Wow. Those are gorgeous. Mm. Where did you get them? I ordered them on your phone, but they’re pink, aunt elizabeth’s favorite. Mm-hmm. Do you like them? I love them.

[ Gasps ] I forgot the candle. You can’t have a romantic dinner without candles. And I know I can’t light them, so, daddy, will you please help me? I will light the candles. Cool. Clearly, violet and i need to have a long conversation about boundaries. Looks like we’ve been set up by a pint-sized matchmaker. I guess we’re having a date.

What if I told you that my going to prison isn’t — isn’t really about protecting you? I’d call you a liar. Okay, I do want to protect you. But it’s not only about you. It’s about your children and the extended family that we both share. I think about it a little bit like — I think about it like — like a cost-benefit analysis. If I go to prison, it causes the least amount of collateral damage. It’s just the logical choice. This isn’t spreadsheets and algorithms. There’s nothing logical about this. You’re in this mess because of me? No, it’s the other way around. I’m in this mess because of you. Because you killed your husband and left him in the tack room. It was an accident! I didn’t mean to kill nikolas. I was just trying to stop him, trying to keep him from taking my daughter. You know this! Okay, yeah, but he’s dead, and you left his body out where any-old-body could find him. And guess who did? Mason. And now he’s got us exactly where he wants us. I’m in this mess, ava, because of you. And if you go down for murdering your husband, then I’m gonna go down as an accessory. I’m gonna spend the rest of my life in prison for a killing I had nothing to do with. You offered to help me. Yeah, because you asked. You — aaah. Yeah, and now they’ve got all the leverage over me they could ever possibly want unless they decide to, you know, just let mason do his thing and get us out of the way. Alright, enough with the “they.” Who is the “they”? Who is behind you and mason? Finn: Mm-hmm. Voil! I think you forgot a place setting, sweetheart. Where are you gonna sit? Not with you guys. This is a date, just for the two of you. I’m going to be your server. Please, have a seat.

[ Sighs ] Thank you.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, I’ll get the drinks. Okay.

[ Sighs, chuckles ] It’s, um… it’s been a minute since we spent time together outside of work. I know. That’s why, when I got your text, I-I was thinking that — well, I mean, now I know it wasn’t your text. It was from violet, but I-I… yeah. Never mind. No, no, I-I’d — I’d really like to hear. Ooh. Ahh, look at that. Yeah. Oh, okay. Here you go, sweetheart. Let me — allow me. I got that.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Knock on door ] Oh. Daddy, dinner’s here. You…ordered dinner from my phone? Dessert, too.

[ Door opens ] You know, I, uh — I don’t think I told you, but, um, you did an incredible job officiating at michael and willow’s wedding. Wow. Where did that come from? I don’t know. We just… I-I’ve wanted to tell you, and we haven’t had a lot of time to do this, to just sit and connect with each other ’cause everything’s been so crazy. But you looked so beautiful in that pink dress. You somehow managed to find a way to be, like, appropriate and official, but super, unbelievably smoking hot, all at the same time. I don’t know how you do it. Thank you. Thank you. I mean, I-I-I think. Yeah, you were just warm and loving and… …you looked like you were really happy for them. And you made it about them, not you. Well, ’cause it really was about them. I mean, it was about michael and willow. It was — it was their wedding. Yeah, but not to me. They were saying their vows, and the only thing I could look at was you. I kept the evidence as a plan b, trina. I saw no reason to get rid of it. Right now, esme is being marginally cooperative. But if that should ever change, if she should regain her memories or, uh, revert to being her old self, or worse, take ace and then try to leave the co– I-I don’t know. But then I would at least have some recourse, something that I could go to the cops with. In my experience, taking evidence to law enforcement is more complicated than you think. What makes you say that? I just know that if you show up with this miraculous boatload of evidence, the cops will vet it. And if even one piece doesn’t hold up, you’ll be arrested and charged with obstruction. And what makes you the expert, mr. Combat vet? Let me ask you something. If you were so good, if you were such a talented soldier, why take a job opening doors for my uncle? Joss, let’s go. Lovely as always. There’s no helping this jackass. I don’t want your help. Trina: Spencer! Oh, my god, spencer. You okay?

never met before. They’re not your run-of-the-mill mafia types, okay? They don’t care about codes or territory. They — they could care less about family or honor or any of that. They’re gonna get what they want by any means necessary. And right now, what they want is information about pikeman from sonny, and you’re gonna get it for them. They’ve made that abundantly clear. What isn’t clear is what exactly they want me to give them. Give them what they’re asking for, ava, or they’re just gonna keep ramping up the pressure until you do. Or — or worse. They’ll just get you out of the way and come at sonny a different way. You’re afraid of them, aren’t you? I can see it. Your fear is real… even though everything else about you has been a lie. I understand that you’re scared. I’m scared. I’m guilty. And I can’t stop thinking that it should be me. That would be — I should take the fall. No, that would be a terrible idea. No, because if it were me, they’d probably send me to spring ridge. No, you don’t know that. You don’T. The feds made it pretty clear they were interested in you because of your relationship with sonny. So, in order for you to save yourself, think about it — you would have had to give evidence up… against sonny, which would have torn your family apart. Kristina, avery, even donna someday would have resented you for that. And if you didn’t give up sonny, then joss and michael would have blamed you for sacrificing yourself for a man that they feel betrayed you. It was a lose-lose. But none of that is your fault. It’s my mess. Outcome of my choices. I’m the one who chose to marry sonny, to have kids with him, to have knowledge about his business. That’s on me. Why should you have to pay for it? Well, the answer to that is really simple, carly. Because I love you. G.H. Happens to offer parenting classes. And one starts next week. I appreciate you thinking of me, but I’m — I’m really not sure. I mean, I have work, and I don’t think spencer would… some of the topics are just so practical. Like how to get your baby to sleep through the night, which can be extremely helpful now that you’re working.

[ Chuckles ] And also how to tell the difference between common baby ailments and something more serious. I suppose that would have been useful when ace had colic.

[ Chuckles ] Probably. The main thrust of the course is just to get partners on the same page, to be able to communicate effectively a-and set goals for the baby. And I think that that would be extremely helpful in your case. We do have a lot of last-minute changes. Mm. Having predictable schedules, it can really help with frustration and disappointment. And I get it. Things come up, adjustments need to be made. But if you and spencer really do plan to work together, you can support each other in a calm and organized way. And I just think it would be better for the both of you and especially… ace.

[ Laughs ] You do make some really good points. I’m just not certain that spencer will be willing to take a class with me. It doesn’t hurt to tell him. And you know what? Why don’t you tell him that you are going either way, and then you can give him the option to attend it with you. You know what? He might surprise you. Did you see that? Damn it. Yes, I did. The first one is free. Second one will cost you. Spencer, stop it. Okay, everyone, calm down. Relax. Let it go.

[ Grunting ] Stop it! Spencer! Oh, my god. Are you okay? Okay. Alright. Break it up. You know what? I’m off duty. I’ll handle this, okay? I know these guys. Thank you. Can you get up? Trina: Just breathe. What’s the problem here? Okay, spencer punched him. Yeah, I know. I saw. I saw, too. So, I guess you could press charges on assault if you wanted to, dex. No, I don’t want any trouble. Joss and I’ll just go. Okay, that’s probably the best thing to do. You know, I-I don’t know how many of you guys are actually over 21 to begin with. Alright. I’ll call you. Come on, get up.

[ Groaning ] Let’s go.

[ Groaning ] Hey. As an ex-con, I really don’t think you want a barroom brawl on your record. Okay? Think about that next time.

Let’s see. You first came to town a long-lost, forgotten quartermaine. And when that didn’t pan out… you latched on to maxie. And when that didn’t pan out, you latched on to me. All of your kindness. You were so solicitous, so supportive after I was stabbed by the hook. Was any of it sincere? Or were you just following orders? Have I ever been anything to you? Have I ever been anything to you… other than just your patsy? Sure I can’t help you with that? No, thank you. Did you enjoy your dinner? Oh, pizza is one of my favorites. Daddy likes it, too. Sometimes we even have it twice a week.

[ Gasps ] I’ll get the desserts.

[ Laughs ] Busted. Now you know all my parental failings. Not only do I allow open access to my phone, I resort to biweekly pizza. Well, I’ll tell you a secret. My freezer is well stocked with tater tots and chicken tenders, ’cause sometimes that’s all you can do. Mm-hmm. And jake wouldn’t eat anything green for years.

[ Chuckles ] Violet: We have a selection. They’re not as good as aiden’s, but they’re still yummy. You have to pick one first. Okay. Dex has no idea the kind of havoc that esme has caused in our lives. He has no right jumping in, trying to tell me what to do. And neither does joss, for that matter. First of all, joss is my best friend. And don’t forget, she has stakes in this, too. She had to agree to drop the charges against esme, and she did it because of your baby brother. So, if you’re upset that I told joss and that’s why you lashed out at dex — no, I just don’t want joss — I don’t want her help, and I don’t want her neanderthal boyfriend’s help, either, trina. Oh. Oh. That’s very interesting choice of words, because the only neanderthal that threw the first punch was you, after you lied by omission about holding on to the fake evidence. I explained! It’s like everything in greenland never happened! It’s like you come back and — and you turn into this selfish, entitled jerk that you’ve always been. I can’t — aaah. I can’t stand when you do this! Maybe this is just you. Maybe this is just who you are. Trina, I’m sorry. No. I can’t hear another meaningless apology.

[ Chuckling ] Oh. That did not go well. No. Poor spencer.Poor trina. I love you, carly. And I wish we didn’t have to spend our last night rehashing all the things that we can’t change. I wish I could just sweep you up, take you someplace exotic and romantic and we could go dancing all night and maybe walk on the shore at dawn so I could tell you everything that’s in my heart. That I want us to be together. I want — I want us to move in together. I want to wake up every morning with you, go to bed every night with you, together. And instead… …we’re here. And that’s okay. The world, the sec — they got in the way. It doesn’t change how I feel. It doesn’t change what — what I want. We can still have that life together. It’s just gonna get delayed a little bit.

[ Exhales sharply ] I love you, too. So much. And I’ll wait as long as it takes for us to have our life together. But we have tonight. And tonight is ours.

how are you adjusting to your role as head nurse? Still finding my way. Hmm. Some of my teammates are still “adjusting” to my new title. Sometimes I feel like I got this, and other times I don’t know how epiphany managed for so long. No, you — you got it. You absolutely got it. I mean, your styles are different, but you both mix strength with compassion. I mean, epiphany was kind of this force of nature, and you’re a little more soft-spoken, but with a-a core of pure steel. Oh. Steel. Well, I hope that’s a compliment. It absolutely is. I think you are… …remarkable. And on top of all that, a really good sport for going along with all of this. Oh, it’s my pleasure. I haven’t had pizza in weeks, so violet planned a perfect dinner. Okay. Oh. She’s exhausted. She really went all out. Yes, she did. You want help putting her to bed? Yeah, I’d like that. Thanks. Yeah. Hey, sweetheart. Are you ready for bed, honey?

[ The paper kites’ “by my side” plays ] I’ve got a love, I’ve got a love for you I’ve got a place in this old heart for you and I want to tell you that I want you any way I can I want to take you in my arms, I do I’ll light a flame and let it burn for you and if I ran, then I would run to you every time by my side your place by my side it’s where I want to be by my side forevermore I love you. I love you. I want to talk, I want to talk with you I want to tell you anything, I do and when I go and when I leave, it’s you on my mind I want to vanish in the night with you I want to take you round the town, I do I’m gonna make some kind of life for you any way I can by my side it’s where I want to be by my side the only place by my side forevermore

“the lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him and I am helped.” Oh, hey, I guess, uh, trina and spencer’s table is free. No, bad juju. I will pass on that. Mm. I know he can be a bit of a brat sometimes, huh? Sometimes? When he was a kid, he was cute, but now I — he — it — come on. That is appalling.

[ Snorts ] What? I feel kind of bad for him. Huh? Well, there’s nothing worse than doing something stupid and pissing off the woman that you love. And then he tries to flex and gets his ass handed to him instead. And then his pride’s hurting, and then his body physically is hurting. And, you know, he can’t be comforted by his woman because he’s so deeply embarrassed. And then she gets even more mad, and then he blows up at her. I mean, you can’t do that anyway, but now he’s just got to go grovel to her and try and win her back. Mm, that’s very insightful, falconeri. Has that ever happened to you? Well, um, I’ll plead the fifth. Uh-huh. Okay. Well, maybe from trina’s perspective, you know that your guy is hurt, but you don’t know how badly, and he’s completely embarrassed himself. And that temper, you got to wonder if that’s something that you’re gonna have to live with as long as you’re together. But right now, your guy, he’s on the ground. He’s in pain and vulnerable, and you’re torn between wanting to yell at your guy for doing that and yell at the other guy for hitting your guy. So what are you gonna do? Are you gonna… what? Walk out? What? No. You’re just gonna walk out? Is that what you — stop. I think — you know what I would do? I would have — I would have taken a chair and broken it over the other guy’s back. A chair. But I know I don’t ever have to worry about being in that position with you, because I believe you have more sense than to ever start a bar fight. I tell you…what. What? I can think of a lot of other cool stuff to do in this place here than start a bar fight. I’m sorry. What?! Why are you apologizing? You did nothing wrong. You came with us to help. You told spencer that if he uses that fake evidence, he’s the one that’s gonna get arrested. And you were right. And how does he repay you? He sucker-punches you? Again? God, it’s like the only time he could land one against you. You’re really mad. Yeah. I’m mad. Why aren’t you mad? Why are you smiling and laughing? I’m — I’m smiling because you’re beautiful. And I’m laughing because… you make me happy. Your lip is bruised.

[ Grunts ]

[ Knock on door ] What happened to… …you?

You want help with the dishes? Not necessary. Aren’t too many since dinner came from a pizza box. And a cupcake box. Yeah. I promise I will have a conversation with violet about playing matchmaker. I love her, but we can’t be together… just because she wants us to. Yeah, of course. I mean…there has to be more between us than that. I should get going.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, no, I’ll, uh — I’ll walk you to the door. Yeah. Okay. Um, I had a really, really lovely time. Yeah. Oh, wait, wait. Uh… don’t — don’t forget these. But they look so pretty on your table. Violet got them for you, and… pink is your favorite color. So that’s what you think? You think I’m just a sucker, right? Instead of going to the police like a normal person, you do that thing that you do, and then, what, I just… help you cover up the fact that you killed your husband? Stop saying that. I didn’t mean for him to die. Well, I only have your word on that. Well, I only have your word that I can trust you, that you’re on my side. If I weren’t on your side, I would just let them kill you. Why don’t you? Because I don’t want you to die. Why? Why?

[ Laughs ] You are one hell of a dancer. Well, that’s easy when I have one hell of a partner. One who, by the way, would never walk out on you. Trina? Oh, my goodness. What a wonderful surprise. Oh, it’s awfully late, though, right? Yeah. I, um, was passing by and decided to stop by to see how you were doing with…things. That’s very kind of you.

[ Sighs ] Curtis and I are in limbo at the moment. But when that changes, you’ll be the first to know, okay? Yeah. It’s really hard when you have a strong connection with somebody, and things happen to make you question it. I appreciate the understanding. And the visit.

[ Chuckles ] I thought you might be out with spencer or something tonight. Yeah, uh, I wasn’t feeling it, so I said my good nights and decided to swing by here. Lucky me. Did you fall, or did someone punch you? Does it matter? Y-you blew up and ran up to your room so fast, I got worried. I mean, you forget that I was attacked in this place, and ace was kidnapped. I mean, slams and bumps make me — there’s nothing to worry about. As you can see, I’m fine. Thanks. If you say so. Does it hurt? A little. What about here? No pain at all. Well, I should probably test it and find out. Mnh-mnh, mnh-mnh. You’re injured. Stay down and let me take care of you. Some nights and days drag on forever. But nights like this are over too soon. Morning’s gonna come, and you’re gonna be headed to pentonville. We still have a few hours left. We don’t have to… we don’t have to start saying goodbye just yet. You have to promise me that you’re gonna be careful. I know you have the skills to protect yourself, and you’re gonna have to prove that at first. But after that, I want you to keep a low profile, and I want you to stay out of trouble. I want you to be a model prisoner, and you do your time, and you come home to me. Promise me. I’m gonna come home to you, carly. I promise. Cyrus: A new prisoner starts tomorrow. I know him. He’s a friend. His name is drew cain.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Liam: Yeah. You were kissing thomas. And I know because… I was there. At the coliseum.

Hope: Liam, please, let me explain.

Liam: And you made me see it!

Finn: Liam flies all the way to rome to surprise hope.

Steffy: He went to support her, to be a devoted husband,

Finn: And he finds her with your brother.

Steffy: Not just with her.

Finn: Pulling thomas in for a kiss. That’s rough. I mean, I totally would have freaked out.

Steffy: Yeah, liam is completely devastated. I haven’t seen him this brokenhearted and disillusioned in a long time.

Rj: So I hear congratulations are in order.

Ridge: Why is that? ‘Cause your parents are finally back together?

Rj: [Chuckles] Yeah. I’m very happy for you guys.

Ridge: Well, you know what that means, right? Gonna have to help me get all my stuff out of granddad’s house so I can move in with you and mom.

Ridge: I don’t want to spend another day without you. Will you be… my logan forever?

Brooke: [Laughs] Yes! Oh, my god, yes. Yes, of course.

Taylor: Welcome home.

Brooke: [Chuckles, sighs]

Taylor: So, I heard that rome was… everything you hoped it would be.

Rj: So you’re not gonna, like, make me mow the lawn for my allowance or anything, are you?

Ridge: Big influencer like you, you probably have more money than I do.

Rj: Yeah, not quite.

Thomas: Hey, guys.

Ridge: Hey, son.

Rj: Uh, dad was just, uh… he was filling me in on everything.

Thomas: Yeah. Well, don’t worry, I’m not gonna give you a hard time about going back to brooke. Though I can’t help but feel bad for mom.

Taylor: Well, I talked to ridge earlier. I know that the two of you… are back together now.

Brooke: What do you want me to say? I’m sorry?

Taylor: I know you’re not sorry about the way any of this went down, from undermining thomas and my family, and especially from not being honest with me about what was going down with ridge.

Finn: So you ran into liam again right after he saw hope and thomas together?

Steffy: Yeah, I was out sightseeing and… there he was.

Finn: I can only imagine what liam is feeling. Finding his wife kissing another man.

Liam: Did you forget all the things thomas has done to us?

Hope: No.

Liam: Steffy warned me. She warned me about you, about your feelings for him, and I didn’t believe it. I said, no, nope, nope, nope. No way, there’s no way that hope would betray me, betray our marriage, knowing how I feel, knowing how much it would hurt me. She would never do that. Not hope. That’s exactly what you did. Isn’t it? How? How? Could you do that? People call it the biggest smalltown festival in minnesota.

Ridge: Even though I’m with brooke, I’m never gonna stop caring about taylor.

Thomas: I do have a feeling that there is no love lost between mom and brooke, though.

Ridge: No.

Rj: Unless their friendship can somehow come back from this?

Ridge: Oh, I don’t think so. I think their rivalry is alive and well.

Taylor: I trusted you. I did. I believed that our friendship was real.

Brooke: It was. To me, anyway.

Taylor: How? How could it have been real to you? You continued to use thomas’s past against him.

Brooke: God, what are you talking about? God! I’ve been very supportive of thomas, very forgiving.

Taylor: Okay, maybe for a minute. But as soon as you realized your daughter had feelings for him, you went right back to manipulating.

Brooke: Give me a break, taylor.

Taylor: That’s all this has been for you, brooke. It’s all you do, is manipulate. And this whole time it’s just been about… getting back with ridge.

Brooke: Wow. I could say the same about you.

Taylor: No, you can’t, brooke. You lied to me, over and over. I kept asking you, did anything happen with ridge?

Brooke: Nothing happened with ridge. I didn’t lie to you. This all happened because of something you did, taylor. You broke our pact. And that is the reason we are where we are. You have nobody to blame but yourself.

Steffy: Hope and liam have to work things out. They have to.

Finn: Well, imagine if they don’t, the repercussions.

Steffy: Don’t even go there.

Finn: Well, this has to be the worst-case scenario for liam. I mean, it’s hope and thomas.

Steffy: Yeah, but luckily, nothing else happened. It was just a kiss.

Finn: Which is bad enough.

Steffy: Right. Well, maybe we shouldn’t read too much into it.

Finn: I guess we’re just gonna to have to wait and see how this all plays out.

Steffy: Yeah, I’m just praying that liam realizes this was a fleeting moment and hope just got caught up in the fairy tale.

Finn: Well, let’s hope that their marriage can survive what happened in rome.

Hope: Liam. Please, I…

Liam: Please… please what? You gotta finish the sentence. “Please forgive me”? “Liam, please let me explain”? You haven’t said it. “Liam, please let me explain”? I don’t know how to do that. How do I let you explain this? There’s no explanation for this.

Hope: No, you’re right.

Liam: After everything that he’s done to us, after all the times that he’s targeted you. And I had to watch. I had to watch you kiss him. I had to watch you take his– …you take his face in your hands. I had to watch you lean in. You chose that moment. You made it happen. You initiated, not thomas. You. You wanted it, and I gotta live with it. I don’t get to purge that from my head. I don’t– sorry, I’m feeling a little sick. Just give me a moment. We’ve seen what you would do for a klondike,

Taylor: You’re saying… that I’m to blame?

Brooke: This is your own fault.

Taylor: How?

Brooke: You disregarded our pact. You were working behind the scenes to try to push me me towards hollis or deacon.

Taylor: Oh, my god, would– would you stop? You know that isn’t true. Hollis was just for fun. And deacon–

Brooke: And you went to ridge and you told him not to have anything to do with me. Meanwhile, you were throwing yourself at him.

Taylor: Yes, that was– that was after I started putting all the pieces together, brooke. When I started to realize that you had not been honest or transparent with me about a few things. You continued to lie to me about what was building between you and ridge.

Brooke: Everything that you’re doing and saying right now, this is just a justification for doing what you did– pushing me to these other men, anybody besides ridge.

Taylor: It’s not true. I didn’t have some calculated scheme to just set you up with men.

Brooke: Keep saying that. I don’t believe it.

Taylor: I don’t care what you believe. Because this whole time you’ve just been playing your old dusty destiny card to get exactly what you want, and that’s ridge.

Rj: Thomas, can we talk about how you absolutely crushed it? Dude, hope for the future has been trending all week, and that’s all you and hope, man.

Thomas: I really appreciate that, and I appreciate your support, you posting about the event, that’s awesome.

Rj: No problem, man. Whatever I can do to help.

Ridge: You know, he’s right. Every look was a masterpiece.

Thomas: Yeah, it was pretty awesome, the whole experience.

Ridge: Yeah.

Rj: Well, I’m sure the whole trip to rome is something you’re never gonna forget.

Hope: Liam. I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

Liam: You’re sorry? You have no idea, do you? I was so excited to surprise you, to see you, take you on the stella maris for the weekend.

Hope: We can still do that.

Liam: I don’t think you understand. You knew… how I felt for months. You knew what it meant to me. You knew what it would do to me. You knew how much it would hurt me. And you blew me off and you blew me off and you blew me off over and over and over again. You told me there was nothing to worry about. I don’t know what to do, now that I know I can’t trust you anymore. I don’t know what to say. Everything I knew to be true, everything I believed in, everything I thought you stood for– honesty, integrity, family. I… I don’T… I don’t know… I don’t know who you are. But it’s not that. It’s not that. And we’re done.

Brooke: You are way off base, taylor. You were the one throwing yourself at ridge. And, oh, yeah, you invited yourself to italy when you had no reason to be there.

Taylor: No reason. This was a huge moment for thomas and I wanted to be there for my kids.

Brooke: Okay. What about all those dinners that we shared together? The movie nights, sharing popcorn in our pjs? What about all that, taylor? I mean, I thought that that was real. What happened? It just flipped. Are we now enemies?

Taylor: I don’t want to be enemies with you.

Brooke: I don’t want to be enemies either. But here we are. I guess I was just your bestie, your little bestie that you were so involved in her love life only really to get to ridge.

Taylor: Stop. I’m tired, brooke. I am really tired of this. I am tired of the back and forth for years and years of us fighting over ridge. It’s the same song, 20th verse, and I am done. Aren’t you tired of singing this?

Brooke: God, yes. I don’t want to do this, taylor.

Taylor: Okay. So here we are. You are back with ridge. Just be happy. Because I have… I have a good life. I have a happy life. I have my kids and my grandkids, and I am going… I am just going to continue… to be happy.

Finn: Yeah, um, I’ll be there shortly. Just, um… run another chem lab. I want to see if the patient’s levels have improved. Okay, yeah, we… will probably end up there.

Hope: Please don’t give up on me. Don’t give up on our marriage. It was a kiss. It was one kiss.

Liam: That I know of. And… it was with thomas. How… could that happen?

Hope: [Sobs] I don’t know. I don’t know because I don’t know. I just felt so much pressure, and I got to rome, and I felt like I could finally breathe.

Liam: Or maybe, maybe… maybe steffy’s just been right all along… and you have feelings for her brother.

Hope: [Laughs] You’re right. Thomas and I… that kiss… it’s not logical. It doesn’t make sense. I shouldn’t have feelings for him. I don’t want to have feelings for him. You ask me who I am, and I don’t even know the answer to that, liam, but what I do know is that.. I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. It’s always been you. It’s been you. Please look at me.

Liam: How can that be true?

Hope: Because I’m your wife. Standing here in our in our– in our home, surrounded by our children’s toys and our memories and I’m asking you to please don’t lose sight of the big picture, even if I lost sight of it just for a moment because we could still have such a beautiful future together as a family. We could still have so much laughter and love. We don’t need to let one single kiss derail that, liam, please. Please. I know I hurt you. I know. But you have also hurt me. And I’ve forgiven you, and I’ve risen above it, and so all I’m asking is for that same chance to try to hold us together as a family. Please? Please, liam, can you forgive me?
