Phyllis: Hi! Hey!
Phyllis: Oh, my goodness! So great to see you.
Summer: It is. I haven’t been gone that long, have I?
Phyllis: You look terrific. That’s a great outfit.
Phyllis: No, I mean, am i trying too hard? Am I? Okay. I mean, I just– I don’t want to try too hard and be that person. You know, things were just bad when we saw each other last, and I just don’t want there to be tension between us.
Summer: Yeah, I don’t want that either.
Phyllis: No, no, so let’s not have that. So, you look great. That’s marchetti, right?
Summer: Yeah, of course.
Phyllis: Beautiful. How was your trip?
Summer: Uh… it was amazing.
Phyllis: Of course.
Summer: I went to milan to buy fabric and– just all the textures and the colors there, it was so inspiring. I felt like a kid in a candy store, you know?
Summer: There was this knitted jacquard and a long-hair chenille, and I– I just was in touch with the design team and chelsea the whole time that I was there and I could just see this new collection taking shape in my mind.
Phyllis: That is incredible. Wow. It is so great to see you like this. All your creative juices flowing. This is good for you.
Summer: Yeah. This trip was really good for me, it made me… remember how much I– I– I love what I do. And it made me realize that it– it’s time to move on.
Daniel: Thank you.
Daniel: Hey. Good morning.
Heather: What’s left of it.
Daniel: What are you talking about? I mean, I’ll have you know, that I already put in hours at the office and I’m only here because I was meeting lucy to have breakfast, who you just missed.
Heather: I know how hard you’ve been working, I– I– I– I didn’t meant to–
Daniel: Didn’t mean to what? Joke with me? You can joke with me. It’s okay.
Heather: Okay, thanks. You know, it’s just, I know what it has taken to get to this good place for you and– and I guess I just– I really want to make sure I’ve made that clear.
Daniel: You have. What’s, um, what’s going on with you? Um, I really wish that my mother didn’t grill you about moving back to the states and living here. I– I hope that she didn’t put you too much on the spot there.
Heather: It’s fine.
[ Daniel laughs ]
Daniel: No, it’s not.
Audra: Is this a surprise? I thought you and ashley were in paris?
Audra: And you’re already back?
[ Audra scoffs ] That has to be the shortest of anyone on record.
Tucker: Uh, I know you’re a busy woman, so please don’t let me keep you.
Audra: Are you okay? You know, where is ashley?
Tucker: I really don’t want to talk about it with you, audra.
Audra: Oh, tucker. You know, I may be the only real friend you’ve got. And if something is wrong, I’m the one person you can talk to honestly and expect an honest response.
Tucker: What’s wrong is jack. I just didn’t realize the hold that he had on ashley was so strong.
Jack: You’re here.
Jack: Come on in.
[ Diane laughs ] A little privacy.
Diane: What’s that look about?
Jack: Uh, I think I’ll let this do the talking for me.
Diane: What’s this?
[ Diane gasps ] Ah!
Jack: Just the reaction I’d hope for.
Diane: Yes, because nothing would make me happier than celebrating being married to the love of my life.
Jack: Yeah. All we have to do is set a date.
Jack: Oh, yeah, soon. I think we need to put our heads together on that.
Diane: Yeah, I think so.
Billy: You want to fix this? It’s easy. We get the board to put stipulations in on what diane can and cannot do in her new position at jabot.
Jack: How dare you?
Billy: It’s smart business until she can prove herself, jack. I mean, if you brought anyone else into this company that you weren’t married to, you would implement something like this in the bare minimum. Dry skin is sensitive skin, too.
Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…
Phyllis: Oh my gosh, I am– I’m so glad to hear you say that. Seriously, after everything I did that you are finally moving on.
Summer: You know, I’m talking about kyle, right?
Summer: I just feel like being in milan where we got married, where we– where we lived, it actually helped me release all of this anger and sadness that I’ve been carrying around. And I just feel like if I could be in the place where we have all those beautiful memories and still be excited by my work, it– it shows that I’m– I’m making really good progress. I’m letting go of him.
Phyllis: That– that’s not progress. That’s actually the opposite of progress.
Summer: I’m moving on though. I can be happy again.
Phyllis: I want you to be happy. But do you really want to move in this direction? And you let it be known that kyle’s one you always wanted and so now you have him, do you want to let him go?
Summer: I don’t have him. It’s over.
Phyllis: It doesn’t have to be.
Summer: Mom, do I seriously need to remind you why I’m even in this situation? It’s because of you and your obsession with diane and how far you were willing to take things?
Phyllis: Okay, well, um, diane left me no choice and I was not– not obsessed. It– I’m gonna take responsibility for that and take responsibility for the mistakes. I just don’t want my mistakes to be the reason, um, that your marriage is over, that’s all.
Summer: Kyle and i are getting a divorce. And honestly, it’s– it’s not my job to make you feel better about it.
Phyllis: No, no, it’s not your job. It’s not. This is not about me. It’s about you and your happiness.
Summer: The hell it is
Diane: A celebration.
Jack: Yeah, the timing just felt right. Things have calmed down, at least some.
Diane: Yeah, who knows how long that’ll last. We should probably just seize the moment.
Jack: You know what?
Jack: Married to you, I am as happy, as optimistic as I have ever been in my life and I want my friends and my family to know about that.
Diane: I like the sound of that.
Jack: How do you like the sound of early october?
Diane: Uh, it’s soon, but gives us time to plan.
Jack: A– a– about that, um, do you think you could trust me to handle all of the arrangements, so that it could be a surprise for you?
Diane: What are you up to? Come on, give me a hint.
Jack: Well, a hint would be counter to the whole idea of a surprise. Oh, you’re trying to break my resolve, aren’t you?
Diane: Come on, just a tiny little hint.
Jack: Okay, um, it will be dazzling and it will be a reflection of who we are and what we have.
Diane: Hmm. I’m intrigued.
Billy: Productive meeting.
Jack: As a matter of fact, it was. Uh, we were discussing our wedding reception.
[ Billy sighs ]
Billy: That’s exciting. Um, listen… I’m glad I ran into the two of you. There’s something I need to say.
Billy: I’m sorry.
Audra: Last I knew, uh, ashley and jack were preparing to go to war. What makes you think things have changed?
Tucker: Why do you care?
Audra: Because you look like hell and I’m concerned. And there’s an element of self-interest. You know, the abbots are major players in town and this would represent a huge shift. You know, what is that cardinal rule you used to drum into me all the time? Huh? This is valuable information, which–
Tucker: It happens to be my life in this instance.
Audra: Well, the hot gossip angle isn’t why I’m asking.
Tucker: Ashley and i had an argument.
Audra: Oh, come on, tucker. Okay, something’s off here. What you’re telling me is suspiciously vague.
Tucker: Ah, that’s too bad.
Audra: So, you decided to come back to genoa city without ashley because you had an argument. I don’t buy that.
Tucker: Maybe it was a little more than an argument. Choosing a treatment for your chronic migraine –
Summer: You know, if you try to push me and kyle back together, that’s about you and easing your own guilt.
Phyllis: No, I just want my children to be happy, that’s it.
Summer: Okay, so let us make our own choices.
Phyllis: I absolutely will do that, I’m just going to be a positive influence in your life, a force of love.
Summer: Mom, before you…
[ Sighs ] …Aspire to this, uh, superhero status, maybe just start small. Like, don’t do any more damage.
Phyllis: You’re angry and I understand that you’re angry and that’s okay because it means you care.
Summer: It means that I’m angry.
Phyllis: It– it could mean that too. Hey, your brother seems to be happy with lily. Who knows how long that will last now that heather is back in town.
Summer: Did you not hear what I just said about us making our own choices? Don’t get involved in that.
Phyllis: Okay, I won’t, I won’T. I just know you love kyle and I want you to have love in your life and I believe that kyle is your true love.
Summer: Well, I thought that too. But I was wrong. It’s really over between us.
Phyllis: Okay, well, there’s over and then there’s o-ver, right? I just think that kyle is, I don’t know, acting out. His emotions are all over the place and yours are too.
Summer: Actually, I feel stronger than I felt in a really long time. I feel really clear on who I am and what I want. And I’m moving on. I’m free.
Heather: Your mom was fine. It’s not like she asked me any questions I haven’t already asked myself.
Daniel: Well, I thought you were happy in lisbon?
Heather: I was, you know? At least I told myself I was and, you know, lucy saw it as this big adventure. It was really good for her to be in a new place.
Daniel: Hm. Far away from her father who had made such a mess of things back home.
Heather: I– I– I didn’t–
Daniel: What? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, it’s the truth.
Heather: Over time, it became less about getting away from something.
Daniel: Yeah, but I mean for you too. You started dating, uh, what’s his name, christopher?
Heather: Christopher, yes. And after we met, I started to envision a life for myself in portugal. And then that changed.
Daniel: Not for the best, I take it.
Heather: Uh, he started making demands. You know, wanted me to cut back on my workload. Not a good idea. Started thinking about having children, really pushing for things. I wasn’t ready for it and– and not sure if I ever want it.
Daniel: Hm. Well, I’m sorry to hear that. How did lucy take the break up?
Heather: She liked christopher, but I got the sense she always thought it was temporary. You know, and now seeing the turnaround that her father has made.
Daniel: Yeah, well, you know, everything I’ve done has been for her. Had one single goal in mind and that was to repair the damage that I’d done and be a part of her life again.
Heather: And lucy knows that. I have a feeling it’s kept her hope alive that there’s a way for the three of us to be a family again.
Billy: Look, I know that might come out of left field given the way that I’ve been acting lately, which is badly. I have not been very supportive of you working here at the company and I’ve taken that to an extreme lately and– and I regret that.
Diane: I appreciate you saying so.
Jack: Any particular reason you’re sharing this with us now?
Billy: Well, I’ve insisted that my motive was to always to protect the company and that is true. You know, I wanted to make sure that we were being smart and allow diane’s role here to evolve naturally.
Diane: Yeah, well, that’s reasonable. I wanted the same thing.
Jack: But something changed.
[ Billy sighs ]
Billy: I started to buy into the narrative that ashley and tucker have been pushing, that diane is not trustworthy and that given the opportunity, she would cause irreparable damage to jabot.
Diane: Which is why I wanted complete transparency so that nobody would think that jack was offering me a job that I wasn’t qualified for.
Jack: I– it wouldn’t have mattered what I said or did, ashley and tucker would not have been happy about it. They had it in for you.
Diane: Well, maybe that’s no longer true.
Jack: Apparently, they have accepted the fact that diane is not going anywhere.
Billy: Yeah. I don’t know. I can’t speak for them, but… you know, they played to my worst impulses. And I started to, you know, buy into the fact that I could run this thing on my own if they were able to get control of it.
Jack: Yeah, I was worried it was gonna turn into an all-out war.
Billy: Yeah, jack, to be honest, it was heading that direction. And, you know, I couldn’t sleep last night. All I could think about is that I was falling back into my old mindset and when I took this position, I swore to you that I wouldn’t let that happen.
Diane: Look, I shouldn’t have suggested that you pretend to go to the other side so you could find out what ashley and tucker were planning.
Jack: You know what, I’m the one who asked you to do that.
Billy: Well, we were able to mitigate the threat because we were working together, right? Until, you know, my worst impulses.
Diane: Yeah, but it sounds like you stopped them.
Billy: I shouldn’t have let it get as far as I did. And I’m not proud of that.
Jack: I am proud of you for admitting that. It can’t be easy. And in the past, you might have let things go a whole lot further.
Diane: Yeah, and billy, I’m relieved that you no longer see me as a threat to your family company or– or even your position in it. I– I just want what’s best for jack and jabot.
Billy: I agree with that 100%. And look, you two, you already went off and got married, so you’re a part of this crazy mess we call a family.
[ Diane laughs ]
Jack: Ooh, I like where this conversation is going. Can we continue this at the club, maybe over lunch, a little celebration? On me.
Billy: Oh, well, in that case, yes.
[ Diane laughs ]
Audra: How bad did things get with you and ashley?
Tucker: I think I’ve told you enough already.
Audra: You said it was more than an argument.
Tucker: Just let it go.
Audra: You know and you said that jack had his hooks deep into his sister. Is ashley gonna make up with jack? Bring all her assets back to jabot?
Audra: Hey, what about the plans you and ashley had to start your own–
Tucker: I said let it go! I don’t owe you any explanations.
Audra: You’re right. You know, my mistake for thinking that we might still be friends, you know, for actually caring enough to worry about you.
Tucker: Okay, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. God, you always do this to me. I don’t mean to take it out on you, it’s just– I got a lot in my head right now.
I have type 2 diabetes,
but I manage it well.
Daniel: You know, the three of us will always be a family, even if the two of us are not together.
Heather: That’s what I told lucy.
Daniel: I think that the important thing is we’re all in a good place now, and we can all show up for each other.
Heather: Mm-hmm. I think it might help lucy to hear it from you.
[ Daniel sighs ]
Daniel: Okay, well, I’ll try and find a place to subtly work it into one of our conversations.
Heather: Hmm. Subtlety being your strong suit.
[ Daniel scoffs ] All I’m saying is our daughter is extremely perceptive, so she will probably realize that we had this conversation and, uh, just be prepared.
Daniel: Well, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, for her to realize that we’re both in sync about this, yeah.
Heather: There’s something else that I think you should know. Um… I’m not sure that I want to go back to lisbon.
Daniel: Why? Because of christopher?
Heather: Things didn’t really work out the way I’d hoped. And, uh, that conversation with phyllis the other day really got me thinking about all of it.
Daniel: Okay. What are you gonna do?
Heather: I’m not sure. Uh, maybe look for a new practice that’s a good fit in savannah or here.
Daniel: Genoa city. That’s– that’s actually an option?
Heather: Well, it’s not just about me. It’s– it’s really about what’s best for lucy too. I mean, public schools are already in session, but she could still get into walnut grove this semester, which would be a very good thing. And having just repaired your relationship with your daughter I– I imagined that you probably want to spend some more time with her.
Daniel: Yeah, you’re right. I– I– I just– I think that you should maybe think about what’s best for you, too.
Heather: We’ll talk more about it, okay? Uh, right now I gotta go. I am meeting your mother.
Daniel: My mother. [ Laughs ] Why? I– I mean, I’m sorry, how– how did that come about?
Heather: She asked if I was free. Why do I feel like you have a problem with this?
Daniel: Because it’s my mother and she suddenly wants to be best friends with you.
Heather: Lately, we’ve been getting along.
Daniel: I– I can see that. Yeah, it’s just so cool. Um, you know, I just get this really funny feeling that she would like nothing more than to get the two of us back together.
Heather: Why would she want that?
Summer: You know, we were finally starting to make some real progress, so let’s not undo that by you telling me what I want and how I feel.
Phyllis: Okay, forget I said anything, forget it.
Summer: Okay, so what’s going on with you, mom? Are you still joining adam’s company? The one that he’s forming with dad and sharon?
Phyllis: No, I mean, it seems like that whole thing has fallen apart.
Summer: What did you do?
Phyllis: Why would you just assume that I did something? I didn’t do anything. It wasn’t me. It was actually adam. It started with, uh, him asking me to come on without clearing it with sharon and nick first and I guess they had enough of him and, um, the whole thing is sort of unraveling and falling apart.
Summer: Okay. So what are you gonna do now?
Phyllis: I’m okay. You know, I don’t have to make any decisions. I have options, but…
[ Phyllis sighs ] …You know, I’m just living my life. It’s on a positive track right now.
Summer: Okay, great. So, focus on that.
Summer: Focus on your life.
Summer: And staying on track.
Phyllis: Yes, I absolutely will.
Summer: Mm. Oh, god, I gotta get back to the office. I gotta catch up on everything that I missed while I was in milan.
Summer: Can I give you a ride?
Phyllis: Oh, no, no, I’m actually meeting somebody here.
Summer: Who are you meeting?
Phyllis: Um, my attorney. Heather.
Summer: Mom. Really?
Diane: What’s he doing back?
Jack: And where is ashley?
Billy: Maybe we should find out.
Jack: Yeah. Back from paris so soon?
Tucker: Yeah, I missed you.
Jack: But you only just got there. Uh, wasn’t it your honeymoon?
Tucker: Wow. That’s so astute of you, jack. I was in a different place before and now I’m here.
Jack: But ashley isn’T. What happened? Why don’t you ask her yourself?
Billy: Hold on one second. What’s going on here? Why are you sitting here with him?
Jack: And not my sister, his bride, who’s apparently still in paris.
Audra: Uh, we just ran into each other.
Jack: Did he tell you what’s going on?
Audra: Oh, it’s really just not my place to say.
Diane: It looked like a pretty intense conversation.
Audra: Well, uh, tucker clearly isn’t interested in telling you about it, so if you will excuse me.
[ Billy chuckles ]
Jack: Ash, it’s jack. Uh– uh, give me a call when you can.
Billy: That was very strange.
Jack: Tucker was not very happy, was he?
Billy: No, maybe ashley made the same realization that I did about the family. Maybe this is not a fight that she wants to have.
Jack: Well, wouldn’t that be a blessing? Life, diabetes.
Heather: Hey, summer.
Summer: Heather. Glad I’m getting to see you again before you head off to portugal. What?
Heather: It’s just that my plans are up in the air at the moment.
Daniel: Look, I’m glad that you’re here because I want to hear all about your trip to milan.
Heather: And I’ve got a run. I’ll let you two catch up and– and we’ll talk more later, okay?
Daniel: Sounds good.
[ Heather sighs ]
Summer: An espresso, please.
Daniel: You are never gonna guess where she’s headed.
Summer: To have lunch with mom. Yeah, I was just with her. That’s why I texted you that we needed to talk. Mom, I guess, is on a mission to prove that she’s changed to repair all the damage that she’s done. So, she is determined to save my marriage.
Daniel: Oh, it’s actually the least she could do. I mean, she is the reason why you’re getting divorced.
Summer: Yeah, but there’s nothing to fix, daniel. Kyle and I, we couldn’t work through what happened.
Daniel: Come on, you’re talking about it like you had normal relationship problems. It was mom. I mean, she basically coerced you to withholding the fact that she was still alive while diane sat in prison for her murder. I mean, she played on your emotions. She got you to lie to your husband, wh–
Summer: Yeah, but it’s not something that mom can fix.
Daniel: The fact that she wants to, it shows a level of awareness that I didn’t really think she was capable of anymore.
Summer: Okay. Careful what you wish for.
Daniel: What do you mean?
Summer: Pretty sure that mom wants to get you and heather back together too.
Daniel: I just got done telling heather that same thing.
Summer: Wait, really? I– I mean, what did she say?
Daniel: She asked why mom would want to do something like that. And honestly, I don’t really have a good answer either. I gue–
[ Daniel laughs ] Oh, oh, boy. Oh, you know what, this is typical mom. She wants to careen from one extreme to another. She just likes going in and blowing up situations and then rushing in to try and fix everything without, you know, asking anyone how they feel about it or what they need. I mean, unless is– is that what you want? Do you want her to try and fix your relationship with kyle?
Summer: No. No. I mean, it’s not gonna happen. What about you and heather?
Jack: Yeah, this could be a ploy, a misdirection. Tucker wants us to believe they’ve had some kind of falling out.
Billy: So we lower our guard.
Jack: As much as I want to get my hopes up that ashley has come to her senses.
Diane: No, tucker seemed clearly upset.
Jack: You’re the one that spent the most time with him lately. I mean, what do you think?
Billy: I mean, I noticed when we walked in, he didn’t seem happy.
Diane: So, what could have happened so that tucker came back to genoa city while ashley stays in paris.
Jack: Oh, I can think of any number of reasons. None of them good.
Billy: Look, maybe she came to her senses and she kicked him out.
Jack: Maybe he betrayed her. Maybe he hurt her. This is her honeymoon.
Diane: All right. Speculating gets us nowhere.
Billy: We need to focus on what tucker might do next.
Jack: There was definitely a bitterness in his voice when he told me to ask my questions to ashley. We all know how unpredictable, even dangerous, he can be when he’s pushed too hard.
Billy: Okay, well, hopefully ashley gets your message and we can find out what’s going on from her.
Diane: And in the meantime, we keep our eye on tucker and we communicate anything that comes up.
Jack: All right. All right.
Diane: And don’t drive yourself crazy imagining the worst, all right? Okay. I’ve got to get going.
Jack: Yeah. Uh, can you stay for a minute?
Billy: Yeah, sure.
Diane: I’ll see you later.
Jack: See you later.
Diane: Bye, billy.
Billy: Bye. What’s up?
Jack: I wanna talk about you and everything you just said earlier. (Vo) ultimate endless shrimp is here
Jack: I just want to review our conversation. I like what you said. In fact, it was everything I wanted to hear.
Billy: And now you’re wondering if that was my intention. Did I tell you exactly what you wanted to hear?
Jack: Billy, one minute, you’re adamantly against diane, ready to take over the family company, the next–
Billy: Well, and that wasn’t easy to admit, jack.
Jack: I just want to know that things are okay with you and me.
Billy: I mean, I thought they were, and now I’m not sure if you accepted my apology.
Jack: Hey, I’m catching it from all sides here. Ashley’s marriage may have just imploded. She could be in hell right now. I would love to be there for her, but this could be some kind of tactical maneuver on her part. I hate this. I hate not trusting my family, not knowing who I can count on. Makes me wonder why I do this.
Billy: Well, we both know the answer to that. It’s dad. The thing that he spent his lifetime building. And for a long time, that responsibility has fallen on your shoulders. Our father’s legacy. But I’m here to tell you… it’s not just you anymore, okay? You don’t have to do that alone.
Jack: I want you to know, I have so enjoyed working side by side with you these past few months.
Billy: I agree. Me too.
Jack: And you have legitimate concerns.
Billy: You don’t have to go there, jack.
Jack: No, no. Wait. Let’s– let’s do, go there. I love and trust diane, but you’re right. I can’t just blindly give her power over the family company. I know that she knows that. She has said that all along.
Billy: No, you’re right. And you– look, I’m– I’m just getting stuck in my own stuff, right?
Jack: She– she just wants to know the family business. She wants to be part of things.
Billy: And I can support her there. Okay? I will help her along. I look forward to doing that.
Jack: I cannot tell you how happy it makes me hearing you say that.
[ Billy scoffs ]
Billy: Yeah, you can.
[ Jack laughs ]
Diane: Oh, abby. Hi.
Abby: Hi. Um, you know, I just, um… I’ve been wanting to thank you for what you did, for helping my mom.
Diane: Oh, I just happened to be there and could see that she was really struggling.
Abby: Yeah, she was terrified. She thought she was choking to death.
Diane: I just did what anyone would do in that situation.
Abby: Well, you’re not just anyone. I mean, my mom basically put a target on your back and tried to undermine your relationship with my uncle jack.
Diane: I hate what went on between jack and your mom. I mean, they– they really love each other but, boy, can they fight?
Abby: Yes, I was shocked by how ugly it got.
Diane: Yeah. Well, things seem to be better. At least I hope so.
Abby: Yeah, I think it’s a good sign that my mom and tucker are in paris on their honeymoon. I think it means she’s letting go of all the anger and resentment. You don’t agree?
Tucker: I am at this very moment, the luckiest, happiest man in the world. To the most exquisite woman on the face of the earth.
Ashley: Mm. And, um… to the most, um…
Tucker: No, that’s right. That’s it. I’m– I’m the most.
Ashley: You are the most.
Tucker: I love you.
Ashley: I still can’t believe I’m saying this. I love you too.
[ Tucker sighs ]
Tucker: This is not the look of a woman on her honeymoon. What’s wrong?
Ashley: The truth?
Tucker: I would hope, always.
Ashley: I’ve been thinking about jack.
[ Tucker scoffs ]
Tucker: I’m surprised it took this long.
Ashley: I need to be able to talk to you about this stuff.
Tucker: Oh. You’re right. I’m sorry, jack, please.
Ashley: I know I’ve told you this before, but we had this huge fight years ago, jack and I. I mean, it was just this massive blowout.
Ashley: Yeah. Uh, he came to paris to kind of smooth things over because I had left jabot and taken all my patents with me.
Tucker: Right. I remember reading something about it and you have told me bits and pieces.
Ashley: Yeah. Well, it’s not really about the patents. It’s just that, uh, well, we came to a place very similar to this and we just talked to each other, you know, like brother and sister. And I guess we both kind of realized that the blood that we shared was just stronger than the argument that had driven us apart.
Ashley: Anyway, being here reminded me of that.
Tucker: I see. So, it was kind of like A… final purge? A catharsis? And now it’s out of your system and now we can… enjoy this beautiful city of light and love and our honeymoon? I don’t like that look in your eyes. Tide is busting laundry’s biggest myth…
Abby: I take it you don’t share my optimism.
Diane: No. No. I– I– I did see it as a good sign that tucker and ashley went away on their honeymoon.
Abby: Okay. What’s changed?
Diane: I just saw tucker at the athletic club.
Abby: Wait, they’re back?
Diane: No, no. Tucker’s back alone. I guess your mom stayed in paris.
Abby: But what happened?
Diane: Well, I– I’m not sure, but tucker didn’t look very happy. But like I told jack, there is no point in speculating until he talks to ashley. It could be nothing.
Abby: I hope you’re right. Uh, thank you.
Diane: Of course. Bye.
[ Sighs ]
Abby: Mom. Hi. I heard tucker’s back and you’re not? What’s going on?
Daniel: Lily and I are happy. Things are good.
Summer: You worked really hard to get to that place. You’re back in lucy’s life. You managed to repair your relationship with her. So, I mean, is there any part of you that wants to do that with heather too?
Daniel: All I want is to be able to be friends with her. You know, for us to like each other and be able to co-parent lucy.
Summer: Then, you and i have a really big problem because mom has it in her head that this is the way to reconnect with us. By fixing our lives. I mean, that’s definitely why she’s being so chummy with heather.
[ Daniel exhales sharply ]
Daniel: We gotta stop her.
