What the hell do you think you’re doing?

Feel. Hey Chad, is it really? You come here. Oh God, it’s so good to see you. Yes, I’m here. I’m really sorry about what’s going on with your dad. Yeah, me too. Thanks. That was ju just with Doug and Julie and. They were asking if I’d heard from you. You know, they’re, they’re upset about your dad. Of course we all are, but it’ll be really comforting to them that you’re here,

darling. You’re not eating, not hungry, but you’re okay. I mean, you’re feeling well. I’m fine physically. I’m fine. I’m just heartsick Doug. We, we just got past the anniversary of Abigail’s death and now this disappearance of Abraham. Yes. So much grief in his family. You know, today is, is Paulina and Abe’s first wedding anniversary.

Juneteenth. Yeah. A day of jubilation. And instead it’s, Hey, I hope y’all don’t mind. I let myself in. Eli. Eli. Good, Eli.

Happy anniversary. Abraham.

Oh dear Lord, please. Please let this be good news,

mama. What on Earth? Why are you here? Why am I here? I’m here because I know you need me.

Sorry, I’m late, babe. I had a cold yellow when I was running out the door. So what you been up to? Well, I was watching those old soap tapes of yours when all of a sudden I remembered something very important. Oh, uh, what do you, what do you mean? What did you remember? Don’t you have something you want to say to me?

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

Ooh, you look so good, handsome, tall, slender. Yeah. You look as though you could use a little home cooked food. I’ll just go make you a plate right now. No, no, grandma, it’s, it’s okay. I don’t, I don’t need to eat right now. Don’t fight it, grandson. It’d be a losing battle. Okay. I’m let, let’s do it. Okay. Thank you.

I’ll be right back. Hey, hey, hey. Hey. Wow, you just got here in time. I was about to break out the chocolate truffles to cheer up your grandma. Hmm. But you are the perfect bomb. Oh, I don’t know. She loves her truffles. So, uh, why didn’t you tell us that you were coming? I wanted it to be a surprise. Ray and I, we’ve been in constant contact about a, but it’s, it’s just hard with me not being here.

So I had a couple days off, so I figured I’d show up and see what I can do to help. Well, you’ve helped already just by being here. Oh yeah, darling. Ooh, thanks. Thank you, grandma. You’re welcome. So where are my beautiful, great-grandchildren? Uh, they’re with my mom in DC but I, I promise next time I’ll bring ’em with me.

It won’t be months and months from now, I hope. No, no, no, no. I’ll bring it back soon. Hopefully Abe will be here as well. Yeah, well, we’re all praying for that, but, but unless, unless you’ve heard something from Ray or, or somebody, the, the police don’t have any leads. No, no news, unfortunately. But I did hear that they ruled out Colin Bedford as a suspect.

Yeah. Well we heard that. Abraham is such a good and decent man. You know, he does not have an enemy in the world, and for him to be kidnapped, actually, he still hadn’t recovered completely from that last assault. Why? Oh, why Lord? Who in the world would do this to him? Well, what do you mean, Abe? What? What would I have to tell you?

Well, I was sitting here watching. Body and soul and Cassandra and Rhett were celebrating their second anniversary, their second anniversary of their fourth wedding. That is, And all of a sudden came back to me. What did Paul, today is our wedding anniversary, isn’t it,

baby? I wish I could say happy anniversary and happy Juneteenth too. But I know this is a tough time for you, so I’m just gonna say I love you and I’m here for you. Bless your heart. That means so much to me. But mama, why’d you call and tell me you were coming because I wasn’t gonna let you talk me out of it.

Besides, I had to see with my own two eyes that my baby was okay, well, she’s a lot better. Not a choice.

I had these fires printed. I wanted to do something to help find your stepfather. Yeah. Well, Abe is the mayor, so everyone pretty much already knows he’s missing. So all of this is just performative. Chanel, wait, look, I know I should have said this yesterday at the hospital, but thank you for what? Calling the cops and saving me from Colin.

And I’m sorry about all the terrible things I said about you. Why did you say them? Because Colin was listening to every word I was saying. He had a gun. I had to say whatever I had to to save your life. And yours. Look Chanel, I didn’t want you to get hurt. More than I already hurt you.

Yeah, I wish I would’ve known you were coming. I would’ve asked EJ to send that yet. Uh, no. It’s, it’s cool. I actually bought a ticket months ago. My dad is supposed to give this big speech for the Juneteenth celebration and, um, my wanted to surprise him. Right. Well look man, it’s really good to see you.

Yeah. And I’m sure it’ll mean a lot to Melanie.

Hey. Hey. You okay? Yeah. Um,

my dad, his office asked me to deliver a speech form and for some reason I said yes. What do you mean? I think that’s a great idea. He sold your dad. Yeah. It’s just that it is supposed to happen in like half an hour and. There’s no way that I can do it.

I tried to tell Dad’s staff that someone else should give the speech, but line is unavailable obviously, and they didn’t wanna ask Paulina, so, so why not you? Because I’m terrified of public speaking. It’s basically my biggest fear. I mean, I, I, I start to sweat, I trip up on my words. I, I, my hands are clammy just thinking about it.

Yeah, I know the feeling. You do. Yeah. What do you think? You’re the only person that hates public speaking? No, but I’ve seen you give speeches before. You seem totally cool. Yeah. Maybe if it’s about, um, business or something.

A year ago. A year ago. Um, I, uh, I had to give the eulogy at Abby’s funeral and the pressure, you know, I mean, it was just,

I had to be strong for the kids, first of all, and, and I wanted to, you know, I wanted to use the right words to honor their mother’s memory. She got through it. Yeah. But I wasn’t sure that I would. And then I walked up there and I looked around and I saw all of my friends and family, all of their faces, and I knew that they were there with me and Abby was too.

And then this, yeah, this calm just kind of washed over me. And then, like you said, I got through it and you will too today. You know you’re gonna be the one up there at the microphone, but. You bet your ass. I’ll be there. So Ani and Paulina, Brandon, you know your whole family, your mom, the most important.

Your dad, he will be there too. Yeah. Yeah. I know. I just, I don’t wanna disappoint him. I don’t wanna let him down. You mean you couldn’t if you tried? You want what? Let him down. Some boring white dude drawn on about the history of Juneteenth. Yeah. Sad. Yeah. You’re gonna make your dad proud. Okay. I know you are.

Okay, I’ll do it. But I need your help.

How’s Lonnie doing? I mean, I, I know you’re busy. You, you have the children and you have your job, but. You must get to see her sometimes as much as they’ll allow me to. She’ll be eligible for parole in six months, so hopefully she’ll be home by Christmas. Oh, oh, that would be wonderful. Yes, it would.

Apparently she’s doing incredible things in there. She’s mentoring prisoners, changing lives. It’s, it’s, I don’t know, it’s just so many women in prison. They just need someone to believe in him. Lonnie is a wonder. We’re always so proud of her. Yeah. Oh, I know that when she’s released, she won’t be able to be a cop again, which is a damn shame because she’s, she’s one of the best, but whatever she does, I know she’ll be great at it.

I am counting down the days until she’s home again.

So I hired Black Patch investigators to work with the police. Oh, they’re the best. And they, they happen to be Abe’s closest friends, but they, they still haven’t found anything. Well, baby. Now you told me Abe was dealing with memory loss. You think maybe he could have wandered off? No, I brought that up. But Mama Abe is the mayor.

He’s one of the most recognizable men in Salem. If he was wandering around the streets, someone would’ve called a tip by now. Unless now don’t you go to that dark place. You hear me? Don’t go to that dark place. Especially not today. Come here baby. Come here.

Now you’ve listened to me, you’ve gotta have faith that your wonderful husband will be found and that he’ll come back to you. Okay.

How did you know that it was our anniversary? Are are, are you starting to remember? No. No. But, uh, Chanel your daughter, I. When we were in the hospital, she told me that we were married on Juneteenth. That’s today, isn’t it? That’s right. So today is, is our wedding anniversary. Of course. I wasn’t hiding it from you.

In fact, I was planning a special dinner for us later. How many years are we celebrating? Just one. One. So this is our first anniversary? Yes. Mm-hmm. It is. Uh, you know, we had both lived such full lives before we found each other. I know it’s only been one year, but I feel as if I’ve loved you forever. Can you tell me about that day?

How dog? Yeah. What would you like to know? Was it a big wedding or a small one? It was there. Do we, do we write our own vows? That’s just tell me everything. I mean, maybe you can spark some memories.

Look, before you met me, I know Colin convinced you that my mom and I were these evil people who he needed to pay back for what we did to his family. But then you did meet me. I gave you a job and we were friends. Or at at least I thought you were my friend. I was. But you still did everything he told you to do.

You went along with his plan to destroy our lives. Look, I know it doesn’t make sense and it doesn’t even make sense to me. Okay. But I’m working through it. I went to go see Dr. Evans and she made me realize that. I was in an abusive relationship. Colin abused you? Yeah, emotionally. I mean, he never hit me or anything, but he had this power over me that I can’t even explain.

And I know it sounds crazy to somebody as strong as you. Not crazy really. When I was with Colin’s father, he was my professor and well, He had all the power in our relationship, and even though it was totally consensual, there was just something that made me feel like I had no choice but to be with him.

It’s always easy to see looking back at it, right? And I know that my situation is way different from yours, and I’m not trying to make any excuses for what I did at all. But you and your mom were so good to me, and a part of me felt like I needed to stop Collin’s plan right then, but, but you didn’t. But I didn’t know how Chanel, when he asked me to seduce you and then break your heart, look, I didn’t think that it would happen.

Okay. I didn’t think that you would feel for me, cuz I knew I wouldn’t feel for you. I never even thought about being with a woman before Chanel, but when we got close I did feel something.

You want me to believe you had real feelings for me? Is that what you’re saying? Look, look, no, I don’t know. I don’t know what I’m saying. Chanel, I, I just knew that I didn’t expect to feel so connected to you. Okay. After that, I knew I had to stop lying and I just had to tell you the truth. Yeah. Or are you sure you weren’t just trying to get out of sleeping with me?

I don’t think so. Look, before I left Colin that day, I made him promise me not to hurt you or your mom. Yeah. I guess he wasn’t keeping that promise. No. Unfortunately not. Look, when I saw him on top of that roof pointing that gun at you, I knew I couldn’t let him. Everything after that, I don’t know it. It was a blur on instinct.

I lunged at him, and before you know it, I was falling off the side of the roof. You saved my life and you almost lost yours in the process. Look, I can’t, I can’t take credit for that. Okay. Cuz I know that I could have stopped it way earlier. Okay. But you did stop it and could have been worse. A hell of a lot worse.

He was gonna kill me and then he was gonna kill my mom next. So I owe you a thank you.

Why would you want the gory details of our wedding day? Why were they gory? I mean, weren’t they happy memories? Oh, yes, yes, of course. I mean, well, the wedding part was amazing. It was perfect. But right after we said I do, our daughter confessed to murder. What? Chanel killed somebody. Oh, no, no. Chanel’s my daughter.

With my ex. I’m talking about our daughter Lonnie.

Why am I just hearing about this? I haven’t wanted to overwhelm you with details since When is having a daughter a detail, Helena, why is this the first time I’m hearing about her daughter and, and why haven’t I seen Lonnie? Well, because she’s in prison. In prison. I’m sorry, I just didn’t wanna spring all of this on you at once.

Well, do I have any other children I don’t know about. Yes, actually. You have a son.

All right. So, uh, what do you, uh, do you need some help writing your speech? No, I, I have the speech my dad wrote, but there’s another way that you could help me. Okay. Whatever you need. So, um, back in the day, my speech therapist used to have me line up all of my stuffed animals and just practice having conversations with them.

Okay. So you will, I can go back and get some of Thomas and Charlotte’s stuffies for you. No, I I, I’m kidding. I’m kidding. I’m kidding. You want me to be your audience? Yeah. If, if you wouldn’t mind, fine. I would be honored. Okay,

you grab this.

Good afternoon. I’m Mayor Abe Carver. No, I’m a mayor. Hip Carter’s son, Theo. I know. He wishes you were here today. But I wanna start by talking about what brings us together on this special day

on June 19th, 1865, where it finally reached Galveston, Texas, that the Civil War had ended two months earlier, or importantly, it was a day that the last enslaved people in the United States learned that they were free. That next year, the first Juneteenth celebration was held in Texas. But soon as the families moved elsewhere, they took that tradition with them,

uh, Juneteenth spread all across the country. And finally, last year, Juneteenth became a federal holiday. This day has been known in various parts as Jubilee Day. Emancipation Day and even Black Independence Day. It’s also the day that I, um, no, it’s also the day that my dad calls his anniversary. And today as every day, we celebrate with a mixture of joy, for freedom, sadness, for our years of hardship, and for those still struggling.

I know for a better, brighter future.

And darling, you gotta have faith. Faith in the good Lord. I do have faith Mama. In both the good Lord and in Abraham. Well, you hold on tight to that faith. Okay?

And honey, I know this is supposed to be a day of celebration, but as I recall, your wedding day was not exactly a day of sunshine and roses. No. No it wasn’t. It was the best day of my life and it turned into one of the worst when Lonnie got arrested. And what does that tell you? That today isn’t just about celebration.

It’s about taking the good with the bad, looking to the future, and holding onto that faith. You must never stop believing that a will come back to you. You hear me? I hear you.

Please, no need to thank me. I’m just really happy that you’re okay.

Well, um, I should go. I made teacakes for my mom’s anniversary. Oh, wow. I’m sure she’ll love them. I used your recipe. So does that mean the bakery’s back open? No. No. Um, but I’m working on it. I’m, I’m sorry. Yeah. Well, for what it’s worth, I hope Abe’s found soon, and I know you don’t think it’ll do anything, but I’m gonna continue to knock on some doors and I’m gonna hang up some flyers.

Oh yeah. Look, I’m not gonna give up. Okay. Chanel,

oh my stars. Look at the time I promised Thomas and Charlotte I was gonna take them to the park to meet Chad for the Juneteenth celebration. I’d like to go with you, sweetheart, but I’m still feeling a little wiped out. My darling here went 10 rounds with the flu last week, and one as always. Yeah. See, thank God.

Would you like to come with me to the park? Yeah, absolutely. Maybe Paulino will be there too. Yeah. You know, Abraham was supposed to give the speech today, wonder who’s gonna take his place as if anybody could

to quote President Obama. Juneteenth has never been a celebration of victory or an acceptance of the way things are. It’s a celebration of progress. It’s an affirmation that despite the most painful parts of our history, change is possible and there’s still so much work to do.

On behalf of my dad, we thank you. Happy Juneteenth. Happy anniversary that

it’s perfect. You’re gonna the park.

I’m ready.

Mama, aren’t you supposed to? Big mama. Hi. Hey. Hi. I am so happy you’re here. So good to see you. It’s good to see you too. We have missed you so much. Well that’s good because I missed you too and I know it means a lot to mama that you’re here. So please tell me that you’re staying for a long time. Just a few days.

Oh, well, we’ll have to see if we can talk again into staying longer, a lot longer. We will definitely work on that. And aren’t you supposed to be at the Juneteenth celebration? I was gonna bring some teacakes by afterward, sweetheart. My heart is just not in it today. Not without Abraham. What’s my son’s name?

His name is Theo. Theo. Why haven’t I seen him? Well, um, he lives out of the country, uh, South Africa actually. Oh, he, he is even calling me. Does he know I’m injured? Does he, I mean, I would at least,

what, what, what is it? I think, uh,

I think I’m close to a memory. Well, don’t push it, baby. You don’t wanna upset yourself and delay your recovery. Um, don’t worry, I’ll get that you just rest.

Hello, may I help you?

Hi, I, I’m so sorry to bother you, but I’m, you know what? I don’t want my cat to come out, so let me come outside with you here in the hallway there. That’s better. How can I help you? Um, I’m trying to find a missing person. So what, you just canvassed the whole neighborhood? No, actually, my sister’s a cop and she scrubbed on this address when she was following up on leads.

So I thought I’d start here first. Huh,

mama. I know it’ll be tough for you, but. You should probably get out so that you can not stay here staring at us in these four walls all day. You know she’s right, Paulina. I know, but sitting here is staring at my sweet mom and my daughter and these four walls. That’s all I’m feeling up to today.

I get that. Okay.

Julie. Hi. Hi. Chanel. Oh, oh, oh, my Miss Olivia. Oh, what, what a beautiful surprise. So good to see you. So good to see you too, Julie. Thank you. Well, I, I, I know I’m interrupting a lovely family gathering, but. Colleena. I wanted you to know we missed you at the park. I know I wanted to be there, but, oh, I understand.

I do understand. So, I brought something back for you from the park, Julie, now come on. You didn’t really have to do any Thank you.

Hey. Oh. Oh. If you didn’t come to the party, we bring the party to you. Oh, so. How was the Juneteenth celebration? Oh my God. It was, it was, uh, amazing. It was so moving and I ran into, uh, to Theo before, and he was so nervous, uh, to give Abe speech, but as soon as he got up there, his, his whole energy changed.

His Brilliant. And he was channeling his father. Exactly. Yeah. It was just, it’s just really nice to have something to celebrate this week. Yes. Julie reminded me that this was a anniversary of Abigail’s death. Yeah. Yeah. I decided not to mention to the kids, but like I said to Julie, you know, I, I’m, I’m pretty sure they knew.

Well. Children always understand more than you think they do. That’s exactly what Julie said. And though your precious kids have lived through a terrible loss, they still are spirited and altogether delightful. And Chad. That is a credit to you.

You know what? Before I forget, Lonnie asked me to give you one of these. We love you, Pauline. Excuse me? Can I get one of those? Oh, now you know I’m gonna give you a kiss. Big mama.

I missed you. It’s good to see you. It’s good to see you, and it’s good to see you too, sister in-law. Hang right back at your brother-in-law, Eli. Thank you. Thank you for being here. Thank all of you. Hey, where else will we be? Think mommy, you know, maybe you are right. Maybe I did need my family and my friends around me.

Maybe. Of course I was right.

Is there room for one more? Oh.

Oh, well, the commissioner came to question me because I was on duty at University Hospital on the day that, uh, uh, mayor Carver disappeared. Apparently, I was one of the last people to see him before he went missing. Oh, oh, really? Did you notice anything suspicious at all? No, no. As I told Commissioner Hernandez, I saw nothing.

It’s so wonderful. Haven’t you all here? I just only wish that Abe was here to see all the people that he loves coming together like this. Well, maybe he can’t see us, but I believe we can make him feel us. No, I do. Let’s all gather around. Oh goodness.

Abraham Carver, we know you’re out there. I want you to know we love you. We miss you. So much, oh, do we ever? And my precious, precious husband is me, Paulina, your wife. And I want you to know no matter where you are, I feel your love and send you mine. And may you never, never leave my heart.

With this ring, I,

I gotta say I am feeling pretty good about this hand. I’m glad to hear it. I know you got a lot better things to do than just babysitting me. Yeah, I was gonna say the same to you. Well, I don’t, and I, Chad, I can’t think of one thing I’d rather be doing than just hanging in with you. They don’t, in that case.


man, foiled again, I’m gonna beat you one of these days. We’ll see you about that. Yeah. I may, uh, manage you to be the ripe old age 125, but I’ll beat you. I’ll do my dinges. Okay, well one more unto the breach. It was great. Great to see Eli again. Wow. And it lifted Julie’s spirits. Yeah. I’m sure it’ll lift Paulina’s spirits too.

You know, wherever Abe is, I hope he can feel all the love his family is sending his way.

You know, it’s been way too long since you sent me pics of my, my grand babies. Paulina, I just sent you pics yesterday. Well, what about today? All right, everyone. Now Miss Olivia and I as the two matriarchs of this family, wanna propose a toast? We do. Of course we do. Now, we all know today is a mixed bag.

It’s Juneteenth great celebration, also a great celebration for a very important anniversary. But we are all missing Abraham, something fierce. Fear. You know, I’ve known Abraham Carver longer than anybody else in his room.

And I know that he would want us to go forward with a celebration and he’d be so proud and honored of the speech you gave in your father’s name today, and all of the town turned out to give their support. Today. Can, can I say something? Oh, please. I wanna make a toast to all of you for being here to love, support, and celebrate my brilliant, powerful mother on her anniversary.

Oh, her love and faith are what’s gonna bring Abe home. Happy anniversary, mom. Yeah,

happy anniversary.

And this time next year, we are all gonna be meeting together in this room with Abraham to celebrate your second wedding anniversary. Amen. Abraham, wherever you are,

we know that you’re thinking of us just as we are thinking of you

Rain. Ivy, we with this Ring Ivy, we.

Sorry about that darling. Sorry, it took so long. I was a door-to-door salesperson. I thought I’d never get rid of her. Hey, what’s the matter? You look like you’ve seen a ghost. You’re not my wife.
