Nick: All right, I’ll make you some tea, you can go and check on faith.
[ Lock clicking ]
Nick: Just got to make sure everything’s locked up.
Nick: You know, we can’t get comfortable, because if we do, that’ll be the opportunity that cameron needs.
Sharon: Okay, nick–
Nick: Hey, this bolt is loose. I’m gonna have to fix that. You should close these curtains. What about the guest room?
Sharon: Calm down.
Nick: Sharon, we have to be proactive.
Sharon: I know, we will. And I’m going to go and check on faith, but I am not going to alarm her.
Nick: Yeah. It’s probably best. What about the tea, is that too much?
Sharon: I think that’s an excellent idea. Listen, we are not going to freak out about cameron. We can’T. We are going to remain calm and rational. I’m not gonna make the same mistakes I made with him last time. And I’m not gonna let you do that either.
[ Door slamming ]
Tucker: You still seem agitated.
Ashley: Well, I am.
Tucker: Even after?
Ashley: After what?
Tucker: Mind-blowing sex, man.
Ashley: Oh, that.
[ Chuckles ]
Tucker: I’m in my happy place. You should join me.
Ashley: I can’t, not while diane jenkins is–
Tucker: Oh, diane jenkins, diane jenkins!
Ashley: Easy, easy.
Tucker: I got an idea. Right now, we go to the airport, you and me, and we fly anywhere in the world. Vacation. Take you away from all this diane jenkins stress.
Ashley: I can’T. Not while this stress wants to marry my brother, and destroy my family. Not a chance.
Tucker: Mm. Worth a shot.
Ashley: [ Sighs ] You don’t honestly think that I’m gonna walk away from this fight, do you?
Tucker: All right, so you’re not afraid of diane. Congratulations. I am. And if you’re not careful, you’re gonna strangle her.
[ Chuckles ] You’re gonna be fitted with your own ankle monitor.
Jack: It’s been a very full day. May I take you home?
Diane: Yes, you may. But not yet. I never want this day to end.
Jack: Then I will hold you in my arms as long as you want.
Kyle: What the hell is phyllis doing here?
Summer: Kyle, you followed me here?
Kyle: I was worried.
Phyllis: I can explain.
Kyle: I don’t give a damn about your explanations. We are going to the police station right now, and you are turning yourself in. Strong enamel is your best defense

Summer: I know that this is a huge shock.
Kyle: You think?
Summer: I mean, it is for all of us, I– I’m still getting used to it myself. Seeing my mom in the flesh like this, it’s amazing.
Kyle: That’s one word for it. How long has phyllis been here?
Summer: Daniel, could you please wait in the hallway? In case somebody else comes, you could head them off.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Kyle. Well, I’m– I’m sure you have a lot to say to me, right?
Kyle: Damn right, I do! Summer was broken because of you. My mother was facing life in prison because of you.
Phyllis: Aw, your mom is so innocent. Isn’t she? She’s never committed a crime, she’s never hurt anybody or put anybody through pain, right?
Summer: Mom, please.
Phyllis: Uh– it’s okay, babe. I’m sorry. Kyle, I’m sorry. I really am. Please, believe me. Oh, god. I’m sorry, I– my head’s spinning. I– I– this is so hard for me. I know I put a lot of people through pain, and one of those people is your mother, and I am so sorry. Kyle, please believe me. That’s why I’m back. That’s why I’m here. I want to make amends. I want to make things right.
Diane: [ Sighs ] Love won, jack. We won, because of you. You made this possible. Your love, your compassion, your patience. You let me back into your life when everyone was telling you to run the other way. And I saw you struggle, I saw– I saw how hard it was for you to trust me, and I– I just wanted to be worthy of that trust.
Jack: I have never loved you more.
[ Diane chuckles ] And I couldn’t be more excited about our future.
Diane: When we were dancing, I was thinking about how I could have never had this kind of day as the person I was before. But I’m free of the past, of– of so much bitterness. Falling in love with you again, seeing your grace, your generosity of spirit, learning from you… I’ve found a compassion of my own. Even for phyllis. As angry as I am with her, I also pity her.
Jack: I thought we weren’t gonna talk about phyllis tonight.
Diane: You’re right. Let’s talk about you some more.
Jack: No, I got a better topic. You said earlier you can’t wait to get married.
Diane: That’s right.
Jack: So, when? When can we be pronounced husband and wife?
Ashley: Diane is unfinished business for me.
Ashley: I can’t focus on anything else until I handle that, which is why I need your help.
Tucker: A very wise woman once forced me to become a better man in spite of myself. And, uh, I kind of like who I’ve become. Feels very good. This, however, feels very… aggressive.
Ashley: Are you not hearing anything I’m saying to you? I’m doing this for the right reason. I want to save my family, and the abbott legacy, which, by the way, used to be jack’s reason for existing until diane hijacked his brain.
Tucker: Do you really believe that diane is after jabot?
Ashley: Yes. She’s not marrying jack because she loves him, she wants access to respectability, to money, to power.
Tucker: And jabot is her ticket?
Ashley: Yes, she will convince jack to give her her position that she’s not qualified for, and she’ll use it to claw her way to the top, which is why I– you know, as I told you, I spoke to the board.
Tucker: So, your idea is to weaponize the board against jack in order to save jack?
[ Ashley sighs ] I don’t like that word, “weaponize,” but…
Ashley: Yeah, it’s the only way.
Nick: How’s our girl?
Sharon: She’s awake, and, um, on high alert. She’s snuggling with borgnine, I think he makes her feel a little safer. But now that we’re back home, she’s gonna try to get some sleep.
Nick: This is crazy. It makes me want to hunt down this creep and run him out of town myself.
Nick: I know, I know. Calm and reasonable.
[ Sighs ] Calm and reasonable, but it is getting harder and harder to be rational about this. This madman is on the loose. We don’t know why he’s here or what he’s planning on doing.
Sharon: Maybe, it’s time we let victor and nikki know what’s happening. Why give your family just any eggs
Nick: I’ve already alerted ranch security. If we bring my dad in on this, it’s gonna turn into a whole different situation, and I’m not sure I’m ready for that.
Sharon: Well… your dad does have resources that we don’t have access to.
Nick: I know, but if we ask for his help, he’s gonna want something in return.
Sharon: Well, his family is in danger. He would do whatever it takes to protect them.
Nick: He absolutely will, but I’m telling you, he will use it as leverage to get something he wants from me, like… make me work with adam at mccall, which he’s already tried to do and it’s never gonna happen.
Sharon: Oh, I think you’re overreacting.
Nick: [ Sighs ] Am I? He hates my relationship with sally. We already have the police on this, sharon.
Sharon: Well, you said yourself, they’ve come up with nothing on cameron so far.
Nick: I do hate the waiting.
Sharon: Yeah, I know. You’re horrible at it. Nick. If you take matters into your own hands, I don’t know if we will be so lucky as we were last time. It’s a miracle that we’re actually still here after what went down in that plane.
Nick: I know.
Sharon: We should have worked with victor from the start last time, instead of waiting until I was framed for frank’s murder. This time, we know who cameron is, we know what he’s capable of, and we need to be reaching out for all the support we can get. We need your father.
Tucker: If I’m gonna ride shotgun on this thing, we need to analyze every angle.
Tucker: Like, when things don’t go according to plan. ‘Cause jack, if nothing else, is beloved by all. Yes, he is.
Tucker: And it’s gonna take real artistry to convince the board that he’s unfit. And billy’s on his side. And traci, well, she just wants to get along with everyone. What about kyle? I don’t see us getting his vote. And do you want to bring abby through the ringer?
Ashley: Okay, okay, you’re right. I know, there’s parts of this plan that require some serious finessing, but nobody finesses better than you. Right?
Tucker: Mm-hmm. But if you– if you come at the king and you miss… jack would be lionized, he’d be untouchable, and diane would be right there with him. And you would’ve lost your family in the process.
Ashley: I’m not going to fail. Period. It won’t happen.
Ashley: And then, diane will lose, you know, her access to respectability, power, and money, and she will lose interest in jack. And she’ll move on to the next jeremy stark, and jack will be sadder, but he’ll be wiser.
Tucker: Thanks to you.
Ashley: Yes. Thanks to me. I’ll save my brother, I’ll save my family.
Ashley: Oh, and by the way, diane will get a long overdue karmic kick in her ass.
Ashley: Don’t you want to be along for the ride, baby?
Tucker: All right. I’m in.
Tucker: But if we’re going in full throttle like this, I have a suggestion.
Ashley: Of course.
Tucker: We get married immediately.
Diane: Okay. Before we set an actual date, there’s just a few details I wanna run by you.
Jack: Okay, but I pre-agree to almost everything.
Diane: [ Chuckles ] Good idea. Okay, I’d like it to be small, yet elegant. After our big announcement at the gala, I’m a little gun shy about grand gestures.
Jack: Understandably. Small and intimate is ideal.
Diane: Good. And I’d like harrison to be our ring bearer.
Jack: That would be my choice, too. He will steal the show, you know that, don’t you–
Diane: Oh, oh, I– I hope so. And normally, I would ask kyle to walk me down the aisle, but I’m assuming that you’re going to want him to be your best man, so…
[ Sighs ] …I would love it if we walked down together. Because that’s how we’ve done everything since you let me back into your life.
Jack: I love that. I would like nothing better.
Diane: Good. And… mm. I do have one more idea.
[ Sighs ] If she’ll accept, I would like summer to be my matron of honor.
Jack: Summer? You’re certain?
Diane: Yeah, our family means everything to me, jack, and I want our wedding to reflect that. And since phyllis pulled this horrible stunt, summer’s been– well, she’s been lost to us. I want her to know that she’s important, that she’s loved, and I want our wedding day to prove that phyllis has no power over our family.
Kyle: If you’re so damn remorseful, and want to make amends, and do the right thing, turn yourself in!
Summer: Kyle, that isn’t the answer.
Phyllis: No, it’s okay, summer. I know how kyle feels.
Kyle: No, you have no idea how I feel.
Phyllis: You’re right, you’re right, I have no idea how you feel. [ Sighs ] I should be punished for what I did. I realize that. I will accept punishment, but please, kyle, no police. No police, not until I clear my name.
Kyle: And there it is. You just made it about saving your own ass.
Summer: Kyle, please.
Phyllis: That’s okay. I know I was wrong, and I am so sorry. In a million ways, I am sorry. But that’s why I’m back. To do the right thing, kyle. Just like your mom did. I’m here to take responsibility, and have accountability. And I’m gonna start by admitting that I resented your mother.
Kyle: Oh, that’s an understatement.
Phyllis: I did. Because she had everything I wanted. She had a family, she had a son who loved her. And my kids wanted nothing to do with me. And I was alone. I was completely alone. And then, jeremy stark started whispering in my ear, and I tried to push him away, but he kept coming back. And I am ashamed to say that I wanted your mother hurt. And so I gave in to jeremy’s plan.
Kyle: So, you’re a victim?
Phyllis: Yeah. Just like your mom. Because jeremy took advantage of your mom when she was weak and vulnerable, just like he did me. But then, I realized…
[ Sighs ] …I was in too deep, and the only way to save myself… was by– was by hurting jeremy.
Kyle: By killing him.
Phyllis: Yes. But it wasn’t murder, kyle. It was self-defense.
Kyle: Your word against a dead man’s?
Phyllis: But it’s true. It was self-defense, and that’s why I need more time. I need to find a way to clear my name. Kyle, please. [ Gasping ] For my family, my life. I mean, it’s in your hands right now. Hey, dad. I got an a on my book report.
Kyle: How do you plan to clear your name? And how do you expect to stay hidden? Because the gcac isn’t exactly in the middle of nowhere.
Phyllis: Hey, listen, it wasn’t the smartest thing to do, but I couldn’t stay away. Um… I couldn’t be away from my babies, so…
[ Phyllis sighs ] You know the idea that– that daniel is just on another floor, and– and that, you know, summer might come here to have a meal at the restaurant, it just– it gave me comfort.
Summer: Kyle, I can’t lose my mom again. I know that you understand how that feels.
Phyllis: Hey, um… let’s look at this, um, rationally.
Kyle: Rational? You?
Phyllis: You remember when your mother came back, right? Back from the dead? And you were so angry at her. Like you are at me right now. And it took some time, kyle, but you forgave her, and the two of you have built this amazing relationship, and, oh, my gosh, it’s so beautiful to watch. It truly is. And all I’m asking for is just time.
Kyle: No, it’s totally different.
Phyllis: How’s it different? Uh, well, I mean, your mom was gone for years and years, so, in that sense, yeah, ’cause, for me, it’s just been A… but these are the similarities. Your mother was unhappy and the idea of a brand new life seemed very, very appealing and I completely understand that. But we couldn’t be away from our babies, so we had to come back. And you see, that is the same. You see that, right?
[ Chuckles ] Kyle, I need time.
Phyllis: I will make this right, I just–
Kyle: No, no, no. Stop. Stop. I watched summer cry herself to sleep. I watched her retreat into her grief to a point I didn’t know if she could ever return. You did that. And then you magically reappear with all your tears and your victimhood and your apologies, and you expect summer to risk it all to help you avoid a punishment you deserve.
Phyllis: I would never put my daughter in harm’s way.
Kyle: It has already happened. I feel guilty even being in this room. It makes us all complicit. And you don’t even give a damn because all you think about is yourself.
Phyllis: That’s not true.
Kyle: Hmm? Aiding and abetting. Obstruction of justice. Collusion. We could all go to jail for being in this room, and then what happens to harrison? Have either of you thought about that?
Nikki: It’s late, is everything all right? Is faith home?
Sharon: Uh, yeah, she’s upstairs asleep, hopefully.
Victor: So, what is going on?
Nick: It’s cameron kirsten.
Nikki: What about him?
Sharon: He’s back in genoa city.
Victor: They let that slimeball out of prison?
Nick: Yeah. He’s definitely here.
Nikki: Oh, no!
Sharon: For a few weeks now I’ve been receiving these mysterious gifts. Um, a champagne bottle that apparently has blood on it, uh, a postcard from denver, colorado, and then a cigar box with a matchbook inside from the southside hotel, and that was delivered here despite security.
Victor: But have you seen him?
Sharon: Yes. Tonight at the coffeehouse, nick was helping me close up. Mostly he just taunted us and then he left, but the scary thing is, he approached faith when she was in chancellor park and pretended to be an old friend.
Victor: Have you called the cops?
Nick: Yeah. We brought chance in on this. He, uh– he told us what cameron’s been up to. Apparently, he got out of prison, moved out to la. He got a new girlfriend, one that looks eerily similar to sharon. He then beat her up, ended up back in prison, did more time, but now he’s out again. Back to playing his old sick mind games.
Sharon: Chance has the police looking for cameron, but so far, nothing.
Nikki: Maybe we should put additional guards at the gate and a patrol around the perimeter?
Victor: That’ll be done before we get back to the house. This is unbelievable.
Nikki: Well, I would feel much more comfortable if sharon and faith stayed at our house for the night.
Sharon: Oh, that is so nice of you. Thank you. That’s really up to faith. She can be a little bit stubborn, but thank you so much for the offer.
Victor: I promise you, I’ll do everything I can to keep you safe, okay? Join me in the
“The young and the restless” will continue.
Summer: No, I– I wouldn’t do anything to hurt harrison ever.
Kyle: No, no, no, it has already happened. If this goes on any longer and the cops catch you, how do we explain mommy’s in jail?
> Summer: It’s not fair!
Kyle: It’s the reality, summer.
Summer: Kyle, we get it. My mom has made huge mistakes. I know. And she’s willing to accept the consequences, but she deserves a fighting chance. Kyle, if we don’t help her find a way to clear her of killing stark, then she’s gonna be at the mercy of christine, and that’s not justice!
Kyle: Maybe she should have thought about the consequences before she framed my mother for murder, killed stark, dragged you into this mess. I will never forgive you for this.
Phyllis: Kyle, I’m gonna make this right. I swear to you. I swear to you, I’m gonna make this right. I just need time, just a little bit of time, and only you can give that to me.
Kyle: Oh, you are relentless.
Summer: Please. Kyle, please.
Kyle: No cops… for now.
[ Summer sighs ]
Phyllis: Okay, uh, go. Go ahead.
[ Daniel whistles sharply ]
Daniel: Not what you had planned, huh?
Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] No. Not at all.
Jack: You know I love summer and I would like nothing more than to see her stand up for you, but I– I don’t think she will accept and I don’t want to see you get your feelings hurt.
Diane: Well, I have to at least try. Just like I have been trying with her.
Jack: I know, I know.
Diane: [ Chuckles ] Okay, so when you asked me to marry you at the cabin, I kind of– kind of had a little day dream about what our wedding day would look like.
Diane: And that included having summer accept me as part of her family. And I’m not ready to give up on that. I have my life back, jack, and I want to do what my heart says is right. And that includes being there for summer.
Jack: And I say, by all means, follow your heart.
Diane: You know what else my heart is saying?
Jack: No, what?
Diane: That it’s time to go home and make love to my husband-to-be.
Jack: I like that idea. In fact, I wish that had been my idea.
[ Diane chuckles ]
Ashley: I gotta tell you, it’s kind of strange that you’re so laser-focused on getting married.
Tucker: Hmm. I just– I want… validation. Affirmation of… I want the ring on my finger also to– to say to the world, “ladies, I’m spoken for. I am out of circulation.”
Ashley: Oh, that ring really stopped you from circulating before, didn’t it?
Tucker: Yeah, I know. I know what it’s like to lose you now so I’m not gonna let that happen. And when you set the date, I’ll know you’re finally ready to let me into your life, and when you say the vows, they’ll come from your heart, and they will be forever.
Ashley: Hmm. Well, then. You think you know me so well.
Tucker: I do know you so well. You wanna know the kicker? Not only will marrying you be a dream come true for me, but it will give me the legal maneuverability to take over jabot. Totally throw jack and diane off their game. If you had a bladder accident today,
Phyllis: How you doing? Really?
Daniel: [ Laughs ] You know, kyle just tore out of here, he might be ready to set a match to your future, and you’re worried about me?
Phyllis: Well, of course I’m worried about you. I’m a mom, that’s what we do, we worry, all the time.
[ Laughs nervously] I’m a mom, even though you think that I am a vindictive psychopath most of the time.
[ Daniel laughs ]
Daniel: You know, when I saw you on the floor at the gala, when stark said that the two of you were married, I– you know I attacked the guy, right?
[ Phyllis chuckles ] I hated myself, because of all the things that were left unsaid between the two of us, and I– I hated the world because you weren’t in it anymore. But you were. You were there. You were there at your memorial and you saw me in pain, you saw me grieving, and you just– you just let me feel that.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Um… I did. And I’m sorry. I’m lucky you’re talking to me. I know that. And I know I put you through pain– it kills me. But I’ll let you talk about it as long as you want, even if it takes years.
Daniel: You know I love you, mom. And I’m so glad that you’re back, but forgiving you? I can’t believe that you would do the things you did to your own children.
[ Door slamming ]
Summer: That was a shock, right? Seeing my mom like that?
Kyle: You didn’t seem shocked.
Summer: I don’t understand.
Kyle: You came face to face for the first time with the mother you mourned for months and you were so calm. You were rational. Might sound crazy, but it’s almost as if you were more surprised to see me than phyllis.
Summer: That does sound crazy.
Kyle: Yeah? Because I’m pretty sure that wasn’t the first time you’d seen phyllis, was it? How long have you known phyllis was alive?
Victor: I want security outside this door 24/7, patrolling the perimeter of the ranch at all times. Clear? Thank you.
Sharon: Thank you so much, victor.
Nick: I talked to your head of security. They’ve got an entire team tracking cameron’s whereabouts. Hopefully, they hear something soon.
Victor: Sometimes I’ve the feeling that our security is more effective than the cops are.
Nick: That is exactly what I’m counting on.
Victor: How’s faith?
Nikki: Well, sharon, you were right. She wouldn’t budge. When I asked her to sleep up at the main house tonight, she said nobody is going to scare her out of her own home.
Nick: That’s my girl. As stubborn as her grandpa.
Nikki: Well, I guess if a guard is here, I can live with that.
Victor: Yes. It’s all taken care of, okay?
Sharon: Thank you so much, victor. I really do feel a lot better just knowing that we are actively doing something to protect faith and to find cameron.
Victor: Sharon, I want you and faith to get some sleep now. I will make certain that someone is watching this house at all times, all right?
[ Nick sighs ]
[ Door creaks open]
[ Bag rustling ] Somedays, I cover up because of my moderate
Phyllis: Well, I will tell you something. Um… I don’t really understand… why I do some of the things I do myself. I do know that I hurt the two people that I love most in the world… and I put myself in my own personal hell, you know?
Daniel: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, you kind of dragged us along with you.
Phyllis: And I’m gonna make it up to you. I just can’t do it in a prison cell. I can’t go to prison. Daniel, I can’t go. I can’t go. But I am done running. I will never run again, and I will never, ever be separated from my family again. Do you understand? Do you believe me?
[ Door clicks open ]
Summer: Kyle, I don’t know what you’re talking–
[ Jack and diane chattering ]
Jack: Oh. Hi, there.
Diane: Hi. Uh, gosh, summer, I know this must be hard for you, watching us celebrate my freedom when your mother is out there somewhere, and I’m– I’m sure you’re really worried about her. But I have a feeling everything will work out for phyllis. She’ll come back, she’ll get the support she needs for whatever’s ahead, and she should. For you and daniel. And I’m– I’m just so glad that you have kyle to lean on, because as long as you continue to keep letting each other in, love and trust can move mountains.
Jack: That is absolutely true.
[ Door clicks open ]
[ Ashley and tucker laughing ]
Ashley: Oh, this is fantastic, you’re all here!
Jack: Uh, we were just headed up.
Ashley: Oh, no, no, no, no. Please just stay for a second.
Jack: You know what, it– it’s kinda late–
Tucker: No, no, no, no, it’s– it’s not too late because we have to celebrate. We have to toast to the fact that this– this miracle of a woman has decided to marry me yet again!
Ashley: [ Cheering ] Yay!
Tucker: And as soon as humanly possible.
Ashley: Ooh, okay. Mm. Mm. Mm.
Sharon: Hey, whatever happened to the tea you were gonna make me?
Nick: I’ll do it right now.
Sharon: No, no, I’m– I’m just kidding. Really, all I want is to just tuck myself in bed.
Nick: I don’t know how you can be so calm, I mean, just knowing cameron’s out there is making my skin crawl.
Sharon: Well, I just keep telling myself that we can handle this, you know? We know him, we know he’s dangerous, diabolical, we know he’s not afraid of going back to prison. And we have got victor’s entire security team and the police on our side. He doesn’t stand a chance.
[ Phone pinging ] What is it?
Nick: It’s from my dad. One of his security team was found tied up, drugged, and stuffed into a closet at newman tower.
Sharon: Oh, no.
Nick: And his uniform was missing.
[ Unzipping ]
[ Sighing ]
[ Clothes rustling ]
