Jack: Mamie, I could not be happier to have you back in town. Why didn’t you tell us you were coming?
Mamie: Oh, and deprive myself of the joy that I get from seeing that look of surprise on your face, jackie? No, no. You have the best reactions of anyone that I know.
Jack: Oh, mamie!
[ Mamie laughs ]
Mamie: And it never gets old. Your father and I used to just have so much fun just watching you open the presents. Either it be on christmas, on your birthday, just genuine delight. And awe. And now, I get to see that look on your face every time I show up at your door. Oh, I just love it! I love it.
Traci: But if you told us, we could have got your room ready, and we could have planned a– a special dinner party, maybe, um, invited over your grand niece and nephew.
Mamie: No, see, no, that’s exactly why I like to show up unexpectedly. I don’t like all this fuss.
Mamie: Well, look, I’m so happy that I was able to surprise you. I’m glad that we’ve had this time together, but truth be told, this reunion is not really the only reason why I’m in town.
Traci: Oh, no?
Mamie: No, there is a matter of some importance that’s brought me here.
Devon: Why’d you want to meet here instead of the office?
Lily: Well, I don’t want the employees to hear us talking about this new secret investor and think that chancellor-winters is in trouble.
Devon: Did you find out any new information?
Lily: Uh, jill talked to victor.
Devon: Oh, what did he say?
Lily: Well, he stonewalled her as well. Said this person wants to remain anonymous, and that it was part of the deal when he sold his shares to them.
Devon: This doesn’t make any sense at all. We have to figure out who this person is because I don’t like the fact that someone has a piece of our company and we’re in the dark about it.
Lily: Well, supposedly this person is gonna reveal themselves soon.
Devon: Soon. When’s soon?
Lily: I don’t know.
Devon: I don’t like the sound of reveal.
Lily: No, it’s all very dramatic.
Devon: Yeah, like, what’s the point of it? Is– is it somebody who wants to cause harm to the company or just someone we don’t like?
Lily: Is it someone from our past?
Devon: Maybe somebody from jill’s past.
Lily: Or, I mean, like, what if this person comes in with an agenda different from ours?
Devon: I don’t know. You think that victor would go along with something like that, knowing how it’d make jill and us feel?
Lily: Honestly, I think that victor is so concerned with the turmoil at his own company that he’s not even thinking about what this is gonna do to ours.
Victor: You’re blaming me for this company’s dysfunction?
Victoria: You decide you’re going to just shuffle the deck chairs, and then everyone else has to scramble around to figure out where they fit into your grand scheme.
Victor: I explained to all three of you what I expected of you.
Victoria: By dictating your plans. Then you just expect everyone to fall in line.
Victor: You damn well know. You more than anyone else should know. A company of this size is not run by consensus. It’s run by one person. That person is me from now on.
Victoria: Then why even bother to keep me around or nicholas for that matter?
Victor: I don’t want to argue about this. It’s how it is, period.
Victoria: Not in my opinion.
Victor: Your opinion is irrelevant.
Victoria: Oh, thank you, daddy. You just proved my point.
Victor: Newman enterprises is bigger than you or your damn feelings! You either accept this or you can leave.
Victoria: I disagree with you and you just wanna throw me out of your kingdom.
Victor: That’s your choice.
Victoria: Do you know what, dad? If I left, everything would fall apart. Everything.
[ Victoria sighs ] So, the trip went well?
Nick: Uh, yeah. Lots of enthusiasm for the new leadership at kirsten. Everyone’s very excited to put the past behind them.
Victoria: Yes, with good reason.
Nick: I know you didn’t want to meet with me to talk about my conversations with the kirsten executives. So, let’s just get into it. If you’re about to ask me to come back to newman…
Victoria: No, that’s not it. I need your help. We need to keep our father from making a terrible mistake.
Adam: Back in the big chair, I see.
Victor: Hey, son. What can I do for you?
Adam: Uh, I saw the press release about the musical chairs. I mean, the executive changes here at newman. I was named in it, but I have to say, the description of my role was rather vague.
Victor: Was it?
Adam: When do you want me to start, uh, whatever it is you’re gonna be having me doing? Have you decided?
Victor: Yes, indeed I have. Nate, would you kindly join me in my office? Thank you.
Adam: How does nate figure into this?
Victor: You will find out soon enough.
Why should I be framed?
Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…
Victor: I can tell you, son, I was surprised, but rather pleased when I heard you intended to start at the bottom of the company, work your way up.
Victor: Now, that doesn’t mean that I’m going to send you down to the mail room, where, as you know, your sister started. Nor am I designating a special area in the men’s room as your new office.
Adam: Glad to hear that.
Victor: Right. I have a place a little farther up the ladder.
Adam: Well, the gang is all here. So, what’s the big mystery?
Victor: From now on, you will be nate’s assistant.
Victoria: I’m worried about dad’s decision-making and whatever he might come up with next.
Nick: Worried in what way?
Victoria: Oh, come on. You’ve seen how erratic his behavior is lately. Merging companies, then not merging them. This person in, this person out. He’s all over the place.
Nick: Vic, it’s his company. He can do whatever the hell he wants. If that means putting himself back in as ceo, if he has a whim, he’s gonna expect everyone to abide by it.
Victoria: These aren’t whims. This is indecision, it’s confusion. Historically, dad wants something, he takes action. How many times has he gone back and changed his mind about something?
Nick: It’s been known to happen.
Victoria: Uh, yeah, you can count the times on one hand.
Nick: Well, it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong.
Victoria: Look, I know, but sometimes you tune dad out and don’t say that’s not the case.
Nick: I do not do that. I don’t tune him out. I just don’t let him get to me or at least I try not to. I just don’t want to get dragged back in, vic.
Victoria: Just for one second, forget about your position in this. Forget about newman enterprises. Think about the family, think about dad, the man. He’s not acting like himself. And he’s about to go back into this highly stressful role of running newman enterprises. I’m worried about his health, and he’s had health issues in the past. There’s a reason that he stepped back from the company. Has he suddenly become younger and healthier? I mean, how is it a good idea for him to dive back in as ceo?
Nick: Okay, I’ll admit, he was acting a little out of character when it came to all this newman media and mccall and kirsten stuff, but don’t you think that’s because of adam’s actions?
Victoria: In part, I’m sure. But why it happened is not the point. What happens next is what concerns me.
Nick: Vic, I’m not exactly sure what you’re asking of me, right? The family company is not my concern right now, and clearly, controlling dad is not in my skill set. I’m not coming back. I’m definitely not going to war.
Devon: You know, we do also need to consider the chance that this mystery person is just a big shot investor that wants to get their hands on something that’s a sure thing.
[ Lily scoffs ] Right?
Lily: Yeah, I mean, that would be great, but I don’t think so. And they can say they’ll be a silent partner, but what if that’s not true?
Devon: What if the ipo idea comes back around and they want to go public?
Lily: No. Jill said that’s not happening. Also, I have one of our finance guys try to trace the money trail and see if he can find anything out, but nothing so far.
Devon: Great. I don’t like the idea of being blindsided. I’ll tell you that.
Lily: Yeah, me either.
Devon: Oh. And hey, we will stick together as a team, moving forward no matter what, right?
Jack: You are being awfully coy with us.
[ Traci laughs ]
Traci: You are. So, spill, mamie, come on. What are you up to?
Jack: A new suitor, perhaps?
Traci: Oh! Someone you met when you were in town for the gala.
Mamie: Oh, come on now. Just– just stop now. I don’t want to say anything yet. I don’t want to jinx it.
Traci: See, see. She didn’t say it was not a man.
[ Traci and mamie laugh ]
Mamie: Oh, look, just tell me about your wedding, jack. I read that you and diane got married.
Jack: That we did. We had a small civil service at the courthouse.
Traci: It was small, but it was beautiful and so romantic.
Jack: And now we’re planning a big party to celebrate.
Mamie: And ashley, she got married to, uh, to that, um, to tucker. Tucker mccall. Oh, well, the last time that I was here, I don’t cite that you were too excited about the two of them reuniting.
Jack: That marriage lasted about as long as I expected it to.
Mamie: What are you saying?
Traci: Uh, it looks like it may be over already.
Traci: I know. Ashley and tucker left on their honeymoon, and the next thing we knew, tucker was back in town and ashley wasn’T. She’s still, I think, in paris.
Mamie: Well, I don’t like the sound of that. I don’t like the sound of that at all.
Jack: Tucker broke our girl’s heart. Again. Only this time, he’s not gonna get away with it. Imagine this…
Mamie: Now, jack, you have always taken care of your sisters, but I don’t like hearing you talk like that. Ashley is an adult and she doesn’t need you talking [Indistinct] Fighting with her husband on her behalf.
Jack: Soon-to-be ex-husband.
[ Mamie scoffs ]
Mamie: Look, battling with that man is a waste of your time. You need to be spending all of your energy on your new wife. Well, okay, enough said. I need to be getting on. Oh, it’s just wonderful to spend this time with you. And I hope that we can get together while I’m still here.
Traci: How long are you planning to stay in genoa city?
Mamie: A few weeks, maybe. I have business to settle.
Jack: Are you sure you don’t want to stay here in the house with us?
Mamie: No, no, uh, it’s so sweet of you to offer, but I’ve already booked a room at the athletic club.
Jack: Mamie, this is your home.
Mamie: Jack, I would really prefer to stay at the club. For privacy.
Traci: Privacy, huh?
Mamie: No, no, it’s not what you think, young lady.
Traci: Like, you are such a woman of mystery.
Jack: What are you up to, mamie johnson?
Mamie: Oh, I’m just settling a few debts. That’s all.
Lily: Okay. Thank you. Okay, so that was bob, the guy I asked follow the money trail.
Devon: Yeah. What did he say?
Lily: So, the money came from a corporate bank account in detroit. And the company’s name is lbb financial.
Devon: I’ve never heard of them before. What does the lbb stand for?
Lily: I don’t know, I mean– I mean, I know this sounds weird but the first thing that comes to my mind is my grandmother’s initials, lily bell barber.
Devon: That can’t mean anything though, right?
Lily: No. No, I don’t think so. Although, I mean, they did live in detroit, my grandparents.
Devon: They did? So, maybe it does mean something then?
Lily: No, I mean, look, lily bell and walter have been gone a long time. They’re not giving money to victor.
Devon: Right, yeah. And olivia didn’t give up medicine to start a company and make investments, right?
Lily: No, no. And I can’t think of anyone else in the family.
Devon: So, you think the fact that this company’s name and your grandma’s initials are the same is just a coincidence?
Lily: I mean, I guess so.
Adam: Me? Nate’s assistant? You’re– you’re– you’re joking?
Nate: I already have an assistant, victor. His name is greg and he’s excellent. Plus, it’s pretty clear, adam’s not the follow-order, set-up-meeting kind of guy.
Victor: You’re both professionals, you’ll work it out.
Adam: I know that I said I would start at the bottom, but assisting this guy? Really? How– how does that benefit anyone?
Nate: What do I tell greg?
Victor: I already have another job for him. Son, I think you will realize sooner rather than later that this is an ideal position for you.
Adam: Hm. Just between us, you know what’s better than mopping?
Nick: Vic, I get it. I understand that you’re disappointed dad’s stepping back in as ceo. You essentially got demoted.
Victoria: Of course, I’m not happy about it.
Nick: Vic, with the exception of hiring nate… I think you’ve done an excellent job running the company.
Victoria: Thank you.
Nick: I mean, it. I have no idea why dad feels the need to take you out of the picture.
Victoria: Because it’s not about business. It’s not about performance or loyalty, it’s purely personal.
Nick: Hmm, well, that I don’t get. What about it’s personal?
Victoria: I don’t know, maybe dad got bored sitting around at home. Or maybe he just wanted to push us around just to prove that he can. Who knows, nick? Maybe he doesn’t approve of my love life.
[ Victoria sighs ] He replaced my portrait with his own, if that says anything.
Nick: Well, you still haven’t answered my question. I’m not coming back to newman. So, what exactly do you want from me?
Victoria: I’m not asking you to step back in at newman. I’m asking you to hear my concerns and understand that dad is not as tough as he used to be. So, we can’t just follow along with these risky ideas of his just because we don’t want him to yell at us. It’s more serious than that. I need you to help me stop dad from jeopardizing his health.
Adam: Dad, when– when I said I wanna start from the bottom and I wanna earn my way to a higher position, this is not what I had in mind.
Victor: Son, I don’t think you and I agreed that you could choose your own starting point.
Adam: Dad, I– I thought we would be working together. You know, father and son.
Victor: Didn’t you tell me that you wanted to learn the ropes?
Adam: Yeah, not from someone who’s been in business less time than I was in business school.
Victor: This entire rebirth notion is yours. You said you wanted a chance to prove that you could change. You get your chance now.
Adam: It’s another test. That’s what this is?
Victor: Everything is a test. Every minute of every day is a test.
Nate: Well… this is as much a surprise to me as it is to you.
[ Adam laughs ] I had no part in it and I am about as excited as you are. So, if you wanna run and tell your daddy, “thanks but no thanks,” hey, that’s fine by me.
Adam: Oh, I would love to do that, doc.
[ Sighs ] But I can’T. Because that is what my father is expecting me to do.
[ Phone ringing ]
Nate: Hey, devon, I’m in a meeting right now.
Devon: Well, after your meeting, would you mind stepping away from the office, and coming to meet me because there’s something I’d like to talk to you about.
Nate: Can’t we just do this over the phone?
Devon: I would prefer to do it in person, if you don’t mind.
Nate: Fine, I can meet you at the athletic club once I’m finished here.
Devon: Thank you.
Nate: Listen, I have to go take care of something. When I get back, we could, uh, talk about your duties.
[ Adam sighs ]
Adam: Very funny. What’s the play here, pops? You’re gonna push me until I break, is that it?
[ Adam sighs ]
Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.
Nick: Vic, are you saying you think dad’s gotten weak? I really hope you didn’t say that in front of him because if you did, I can understand why you got demoted.
Victoria: I’m saying that our father’s behavior is not normal. I mean, you– you’ve even agreed with me, you said that he’s not acting like himself. He’s usually so strong and decisive, not all of this back and forth and constantly changing his mind. And yes, I’m sure adam is partly to blame, when isn’t he? But there’s more to it.
Nick: Are you really that concerned with dad’s decision-making right now? Or are you just using this as an excuse to get your job back?
Victoria: Really, nick? Really? Do you think that I would use my concern for our father as some sort of a power play? Have you forgotten about his past medical issues? I mean, yeah, sure, he can– he can pound on a punching bag all day long, but this is about more than just his physical strength. This is about his mind too. Or, I’m sorry, does me saying that offend you on dad’s behalf? Do you think I’m trying to undermine him for my own benefit, is that what this is?
Nick: It just seems a little coincidental that you think dad has suffered some sort of mental decline, but only after you lost your position as ceo.
Nate: Okay, devon, you got me over here. So, what’s the big emergency?
Devon: I want to know when the last time you spoke to your mom was.
Nate: Why? Is there something wrong?
Devon: No, no, no, she’s– there’s nothing wrong with her. She’s fine. Um, I’m just trying to figure something out. ‘Cause there’s a new investor that we have at chancellor-winters and we don’t know who it is, but it’s looking like they might be connected to your family.
Nate: Okay, so why do you think it’s my mom, she– she’s not a business person.
Devon: Well, dru and olivia’s parents are gone, so she’s the only one left.
Nate: And you come up with this family connection because of?
Devon: ‘Cause the name of the investment firm is lbb, which are the same initials as lillie belle.
Nate: I’m not sure why lily doesn’t know this, but aunt mamie has a small investment firm.
Devon: Called lbb?
Devon: Is it based out of detroit?
Nate: Yeah, I think that’s right. Um, aunt mamie bought my grandparents’ house there a few years back.
Devon: Really? Okay, uh, what else can you tell me about the company?
Nate: Look, devon, I’m not comfortable talking anymore about my aunt mamie’s business. Unless you can tell me what you’re after.
Devon: I’ve told you what I’m after. I’m trying to figure out who this investor is. Or see if anything you’re telling me is relevant.
Devon: What? What? You can’t talk to me? It’s fine. It’s really fine. Forget I even said anything. Thank you for meeting me here. You’ve been a lot of help, okay?
Nate: Okay. Okay. So, you only reach out when you need something. Is– is that how it’s gonna be? Come on, man. Can’t we just get beyond the past?
Devon: Nate, not today. Thanks again.
[ Nate sighing ]
Traci: [ Laughs ] Wow, mamie was quite mischievous, wasn’t she?
Jack: Yes, she was.
Traci: She denies that there’s any romance, but I’m not kidding. There is a twinkle in her eye.
Jack: Oh, she was definitely having fun. Didn’t it remind you somewhat of back when she and jill used to face off?
Traci: Oh, those two.
Jack: What if jill is the unfinished business she was talking about?
Traci: What? After all these years? I– no one could ever say that jill and mamie were ever going to be best friends, but I thought they behaved pretty civilly at the gala.
[ Laughs ] Sort of. Wow, I, uh– you know, I– i thought they had called a truce. Mamie took jill’s million bucks and invested it really wisely.
Jack: And lived happily ever after.
Traci: And I always thought that mamie was content with her life.
Jack: What if she wanted one last hurrah? What if mamie has some unfinished business with the former mrs. John abbott?
[ Mamie gasps, laughs ]
Nate: Aunt mamie.
[ Both laughing ] Aw.
Nate: What are you doing here? I didn’t know you were in town.
Mamie: Well, I wanted to surprise you, and your cousins. My plan was to reach out tonight after work, but now, my plans have been spoiled.
Nate: Well, well, I am thrilled to see you.
[ Mamie laughs ] We didn’t get to spend nearly enough time together when you were in town for the bicentennial. So, what brings you back so soon?
Mamie: I decided that I needed to spend more time with the people that I loved the most.
Nate: Uh-huh. And devon was just here asking about you, your business, and your sister, lillie belle.
Mamie: Oh, my. Certainly got onto that faster than I expected.
Nate: And what exactly does that mean? What are you up to? Salonpas, makers of powerful pain relief patches
Lily: Hey. Did you see nate?
Devon: Yes, I did.
Lily: What did he say?
Devon: He said a whole lot. He said that, uh, aunt mamie has an investment firm called lbb and she named it after your grandmother. And it’s one of the few entities she owns.
Lily: Wow, I mean, I knew that she, you know, had good investments and real estate, but I didn’t know about her business ventures. So, wait. So, mamie is the secret investor.
Devon: I mean, it seems pretty likely, don’t you think?
Lily: Yeah. I mean, I guess, she would want to remain anonymous, given her history with jill.
Devon: Well, sure, that makes sense, but what I don’t understand is, why would she keep this a secret from us since we’re family.
Lily: What could she be up to?
Mamie: I hope I’m not keeping you from anything, nate. Your mom has been keeping me up to date on your business career. Sending me journal articles. I know what a big deal you are over at newman enterprises.
Nate: Come on, I’ll always have time for you, aunt mamie. Now, please tell me, what is this all about.
[ Mamie sighs ]
Mamie: You are the one person that I can trust with the truth.
Nate: Sounds a bit ominous, but I’m flattered, I guess.
Mamie: Well, it will all come out sooner than later. Sooner than I expected, apparently. But I wanted you to hear it from me.
Mamie: I’ve invested in chancellor-winters.
Nate: Ah, so you’re the mystery benefactor.
Mamie: I am.
Nate: Lily and devon are family. Why are you keeping this a secret?
Victoria: It sounds like you think I would put my personal ambition above our father’s well-being.
Nick: It just kind of seems to me like all this concern for dad’s coming out of left field.
Victoria: How can you say that? Dad’s decision to demote me was just the latest in a long list of questionable moves.
Nick: Says you.
Victoria: Yes. Says me.
[ Sighs ] That aside, dad stepping out of semi-retirement and coming back to the office, day in and day out again is gonna be very physically taxing on him and I’m worried. I think it might be too much. And guess what. Mom agrees with me.
Nick: Then, mom should be the one who tries to talk dad out of throwing himself back into his work. Look, whether your concern for dad is genuine or not, dad’s gonna see it as sour grapes. It’s the way it’s gonna be. He’s gonna see this as some ploy to get your job back. Can you imagine the fury that is going to rain down upon you if you ever suggest to our father he’s incapable of running the company that he built?
Victoria: Then, what should I do about it?
Nick: You need to let mom deal with it, right? And just accept the fact that you’re not in the top spot right now, and be cool to him. Keep that father-daughter peace if you ever hope to get your position back someday.
Adam: Let’s see, victoria’s angry, nick nonplused, am i safe to assume that victoria just told you about the new family company news? You know, I have to wonder, sis, if you didn’t have a gleeful hand in dad appointing me your boyfriend’s gofer.
Victoria: Whatever fate our father has chosen for you is undoubtedly more than you deserve and decidedly unfair to nate.
[ Adam sighs ]
Nick: What the hell was that? My husband and I have never been more active.
Nick: Thanks, man. Well, our father just has a hell of a sense of humor, doesn’t he?
Adam: Oh, yeah, he’s just uh, hilarious.
Nick: You walked right into that one though. I mean, you asked for this. You told him you wanted to start at the bottom and work your way up and prove yourself, and he gave you that opportunity.
Adam: Yeah, under nate’s thumb though.
Nick: Yeah, that part does suck. Gotta be honest, adam, I don’t know who I trust less right now, nate or you? What I do find interesting is the timing of all this. I mean, this just happened what, today? And here you are crying about it already, which tells me you don’t want to start at the bottom. You don’t want to do things the right way. You’re just biding your time until you can make your next move.
Adam: [ Sighs ] Well, then, I guess, it’s good you got out of newman at the right time. Again.
Nick: Man, do whatever you want. Be nate’s assistant or not. Do dad’s bidding or walk. I don’t care. But I’m telling you right now, if you do anything to hurt dad, and especially, vic, all bets are off with us. You will deal with me.
Jack: Mamie versus jill seems like a lifetime ago. Would mamie really come back to town with some kind of vendetta? I mean, devon and lily work with jill? Would she do something to cause trouble for her own family?
Traci: That certainly does not sound like the mamie we know and love.
Jack: I hate to think of her getting all caught up in score-settling with our former stepmother.
Traci: Well, I’m with you. And if anybody knows how to play dirty–
Jack: Exactly. It’s jill.
Nate: Jill, her head is going to explode when she learns about this, right? So, is that what this is all about? Some sort of payback?
Mamie: Jill and I do have quite the history.
Jill: You’re kidding me, right?
Mamie: About going to jack’s wedding? Why would I be kidding?
Jill: Oh, that’s right. You’re probably serving at the reception.
Mamie: No, jill, I’m not serving. I am going to the wedding ceremony and sitting with the family. Then, I’m going to the reception as a guest.
Jill: How did you finagle an invitation out of jack? Oh, I bet you gave him some sob story about changing his diapers as a kid. You really have no shame.
Mamie: For your information, jill, I did not have to ask for an invitation. Besides, I wouldn’t be that presumptuous. That’s more your style.
Jill: It’s better than having no style at all.
Mamie: The truth is, jill, mr. Abbott invited me to come as part of the family and I didn’t have to hold a gun to his head.
Jill: Mamie, mr. Abbott invited you for sentimental reasons. After all, you’ve been a fixture around this house for 100 years. Don’t overestimate your position. You are the housekeeper here. Now, you just run along and enjoy jack’s nuptials.
Mamie: Why, thank you. I intend to.
Jill: And billy and i get along just fine.
Mamie: Yes, you should enjoy your time with your son. It may be running out.
Jill: Why you vicious woman!
[ Exhales in frustration ] Awful lot of zeroes, aren’t there?
Mamie: What is this?
Jill: Well, it’s a check, payable to mamie johnson.
Jill: [ Laughs ] Mamie, think of all the things you could buy with that money. A lovely condo, a fancy car. Anything. Plus, you’d never have to work another day in your life.
Mamie: Are you buying me off?
[ Jill sighs ]
Jill: Listen, I know how you feel about this family, but would you be realistic, please? You really want to put yourself through the agony of living under the same roof with the man you love, knowing you can never have him? And mamie, make no make no mistake, john will never, never be yours.
Mamie: I wonder how long you’ll last, jill. How long before you crave the next jed sanders?
Jill: [ Sighs ] We’re not talking about me, we’re talking about you. We’re talking about the chance for a brand new life, and you have it right there in your hands. Lady, you’ve hit the jackpot. All you have to do is leave.
Mamie: [ Laughing ] Oh. I very much am looking forward to seeing jill’s head explode.
[ Nate laughing ] But I’m not ready to reveal my plans yet. I still have some details I have to work out.
Nate: Uh-huh, and you’re swearing me to secrecy.
Mamie: I am. I also need your help.
Nate: My help?
Mamie: You have got to get lily and devon off track. They cannot know yet that I am the chancellor-winter’s mystery investor.
Nate: Uh, sorry, you might be too late on that, aunt mamie. Devon seems to have put the pieces together already.
Mamie: Well, this is not going the way I planned it all.
Lily: Can you imagine how upset jill is gonna be when she finds out that mamie has a stake in chancellor-winters? She’s gonna go ballistic.
Devon: I think that’s an understatement. I think she– she’s gonna completely lose her mind.
Lily: I mean, there has to be a way that we can diffuse the situation before we tell her maybe, right?
Lily: I don’t know. I don’t know, but also, we have to be sure before we say anything.
Devon: Well, I mean, come on.
Lily: Well, no, I know it probably is her, but still, we have to be certain before we tell anyone. And more importantly, we have to figure out what mamie’s motives are.
