[ Dramatic music ]

Luna: It’s not what you think, mom. I didn’t– I didn’t wake up in rj’s bed this morning. I woke up in zende’S.

Poppy: Could someone have drugged you?

Luna: No, no, I mean I was at the forrester house, not a club.

Poppy: How much did you have to eat?

Luna: Like barely anything. I probably had more mints than anything else.

Poppy: Mints? You can’t tell him.

Luna: I have to tell him.

Poppy: Okay, but you didn’t cheat. It wasn’t a betrayal. You were in an altered state.

Luna: I slept with another man, mom. How it happened doesn’t matter.

[ Knock on door ]

Zende: Have you heard from luna? Did she tell rj?

Rj: Wow, look at you. Hi. You wanna go for a morning walk on the beach? It looks really nice out there.

Luna: Sure, okay.

Rj: It’s not okay. I mean, you– you’re obviously not feeling like yourself.

Luna: I’m sorry, rj, I just–

Rj: No, no, no. Don’t be sorry. It’s okay. It’s okay. I just wanted to be with you last night. It was nice, you know, just being able to hold you. You falling asleep in my arms. I’m just guessing you didn’t get a lot of sleep, though. Look, I know a lot was on your mind last night, okay? And I’m sensing that there still is.

Luna: Oh, my god. What happened? What am I doing here?

Zende: That’s what i asked myself when you surprised me here last night.

Rj: Whatever’s going on, you don’t got to worry about it. It’s going to be all right. I love you. Come here.

Hope: It’s very… provocative.

Thomas: Too provocative?

Hope: Maybe. Definitely too provocative for hope for the future, but I have a feeling that’s not what you were thinking about when you were designing this.

Thomas: What gave me away?

Hope: Hm… something about the silhouette evokes A… raw sensuality.

Thomas: You have a problem with raw sensuality?

Thomas: You know, my granddad’s right about us.

Hope: How so?

Thomas: Oh, it’s just what he said earlier when we were with him. Or even the night he collapsed. He said that we’re not scandalous, the two of us. He also sees how happy I am with you. How happy we both are. And my granddad knows better than anyone, it doesn’t make sense to postpone happiness. Life’s too short for that.

Poppy: You shouldn’t just show up here like this.

Zende: You want me to keep my distance? You do realize that’s next to impossible since luna and I literally work together?

Poppy: Okay, yes, but–

Zende: Is she here?

Poppy: No.

Zende: She didn’t come home last night? Have you heard from her?

Poppy: Obviously, you haven’t either.

Zende: What if she told rj? What if he knows?

Poppy: About what you did that night?

Zende: What I did? I did not take advantage of her! She agrees! You’re the one who drugged your own daughter!

Poppy: Yes, well… okay, we’re both on edge. And neither of us want luna to destroy her life and future with rj over one terrible mistake.

Luna: I’m sorry.

Rj: No, you have nothing to be sorry about. Look, um… I know– I know we gotta get going soon, but I just want you to know that I love you. And this is– this is what I’m focused on right now. Just us, okay? And I just want to know what’s going on because I just want to help you. I promise you, nothing is gonna come between us. Ever. Special k is oven-toasted to crisp perfection

Thomas: You know we’re lucky, having granddad’s support. You know, your mom actually looks up to him. Maybe– maybe he could help us convince her to be on our side.

Hope: You mean put eric in the middle between his own grandson and a woman who will always hold a very, very special place in his heart?

Thomas: Okay, it’s a bad idea. Right. Okay, that’s– that’s fine. All I really wanted was my granddad’s blessing. You know, that means everything to me. Nope, strike that. You mean everything to me.

Hope: Mm-hmm. You keep talking like that, we aren’t going to get a lot of work done.

Thomas: If you’re thinking about work, then I’m doing something terribly wrong.

Hope: No, you’re not doing anything wrong.

Rj: Oh, hey! Hi! Sorry. I, uh… my bad. So that’s what it’s like to be on the other side of this. I didn’t know you two were…

Thomas: Working.

Hope: Yeah, yeah. And we were just taking a– a quick break.

Thomas: Just a break.

Rj: You know, that’s really funny because that’s exactly– it’s like word for word what I say when luna and i get interrupted. That’s funny.

Hope: Speaking of.

Thomas: Speaking of. Yeah, where is luna?

Hope: Yeah, did she, uh, did she ride in with you?

Rj: Did she ride in with me? Is this your really subtle way of asking me if luna spent the night with me last night?

Thomas: No, we just– we don’t care.

Hope: Nope, nope.

Thomas: We don’t wanna know.

Hope: No, you are two adults and we would never pry.

Thomas: Never.

Rj: I just– I want to spend every second of every day with this girl. And it’s– it’s crazy. When we’re apart, I’M…

Thomas: Just thinking about the next time you get to be with her. I know what that’s like.

Rj: Yeah. I mean, because I’ve like I’ve had other girlfriends, but this is just… it’s completely different because of who luna is.

Hope: Well, it sounds like you two are in a very good place.

Thomas: Yeah.

Rj: Yeah, yeah and I think it’s only gonna get better.

Poppy: Rj would never understand.

Zende: That is why luna cannot tell him what happened between us. The fallout? I don’t even want to go there.

Poppy: Well, neither do I. But knowing my daughter and how much she values the truth–

Zende: Luna should have never been in this situation and she wouldn’t have been if you–

Poppy: If it weren’t for me and my special mints. Zende, I am aware.

Zende: You’re a mother. I don’t get how you could be so irresponsible.

Poppy: I didn’t do it on purpose! I would never intentionally harm my daughter. I love her more than I love my own life.

Zende: I’m not questioning that, but… you took something precious from her, poppy. From me, too. I really do care about luna. I would have liked to see where this could go, I–

Poppy: Okay, will you just put that out of your mind right now? Luna loves rj and he adores her and this will not ruin things for them.

Zende: The only way it won’t is if…

Luna: Zende, what are you doing here?

Poppy: Honey, you’re home. I was texting you all night and this morning. You spent the night with rj?

Luna: Yeah.

Poppy: I was so worried about you, honey.

Zende: We both were.

Thomas: Please tell me that everything’s okay. That you and rj, that– that your relationship is okay. I know that you were thinking about telling him. But, sweetheart, if you do… you have to protect what you found with him. Protect his heart. Protect yours. You two have so much promise together as a couple. Don’t jeopardize it by–

Luna: By what, mom? By being honest with him?

Poppy: You’re not saying–

Luna: No, mom. I didn’t tell rj. And I feel awful.

Did you know you waste

200 hours a year

Hope: Look at you. You can’t stop smiling, can you?

Rj: I don’t know. Thinking about luna does that to me.

Thomas: Oh, puppy love.

Rj: Stop.

Hope: I don’t know. You two have had some very special moments lately.

Rj: I will admit, though, um. Something’s been a little bit off recently.

Thomas: How so?

Rj: I don’t know. She’s just been kind of within herself.

Hope: Well, have you tried talking to her about it?

Rj: Yes. I– I didn’t want to push. I just told her that I’m here for her if she needs me.

Hope: I know she appreciates having your support. I’m sure she just has a lot going on right now.

Rj: And that’s why I’m trying to be as understanding as I can.

Thomas: From what I’ve seen? You two, how you act around each other, the way that you talk about her, I think that you have what it takes to go the distance.

Hope: I think we all think that.

Rj: I think you’re right. I think we do have a real future ahead of us.

Luna: Rj thinks that I’m so pure and innocent. He thinks that I’m someone he can trust.

Poppy: And you are, honey. You’re all those things and more. That’s why rj loves you so much.

Luna: But if he knew what happened? If rj knew about what happened between us zende?

Poppy: There’s no reason to tell–

Luna: No reason? Mom, what about honesty? Or– or decency? Or integrity? Oh, right. I mean, who am I kidding? I’m talking to the mother who accidentally drugged her own daughter, so…

Poppy: Luna, I told you–

Luna: I know what you told me, mom. I know that you’re horrified about what happened.

Poppy: Yes, and I am horrified. But please, please don’t make a bad situation infinitely worse by confessing to rj. Why take that risk?

Luna: We’ve always been so close, you and I. That was our power. But after what happened, and now knowing why it happened, I don’t know if we’ll ever be that close again. Or if it’s even possible.

Poppy: Oh, sweetheart. Please.

Luna: Just go. Now, please. I want a moment alone with zende.

Poppy: You don’t know that that’s why–

Luna: Oh my god, mom. For the last time, zende did not take advantage of me. This was all you. All you and your mints.

Zende: I hate what this is doing to you. If I could take it all back, I would. But since I know that’s not possible, maybe the only thing to do is to move forward. And I think I know a way how. A way for you not to feel so tormented about our night together. -We’re done. -What about these?

Thomas: Ah, finally, privacy.

Hope: Mm-hmm

Luna: You’re everything I ever imagined. So kind and handsome. Who understands me and trusts and respects me. And loves me.

Rj: I love you.

Luna: I love you too.

Luna: I know you hate secrets. And I definitely hate this secret. When I’m with rj, and he’s telling me how much he loves and trusts me, like, I feel like such a fraud.

Zende: You are not a fraud. You are wonderful. And none of what has happened has been your fault. You didn’t do anything wrong.

Luna: Knowingly, no. That doesn’t change what happened, zende. You and I slept together. I mean, nothing is ever gonna be the same after this.

Zende: Like I said, I hate seeing you like this. You don’t deserve it. You are so amazing. You came into forrester, and you caught everyone’s eye. Not just rj’s, but mine too. Our night together, I realize now that you’d taken those mints and thought I was rj, but I knew that I was with you. I knew how incredible it felt from the moment I had you in my arms. Luna, I am crazy about you. And… um… despite everything, I have always thought that things happen for a reason. And the more I think about it, the more I think this might’ve happened for a reason as well. Maybe telling rj will make it easier.

Luna: Make what easier?

Zende: Easier for us to be together. I have felt this connection with you. And not just our night together, we’ve spent so much time together. I’ve opened up to you, and– and you’ve listened. I mean, I– I thought that we would be so incredible together. All this guilt and torment that you’re feeling, it will disappear. I know it will. Because I will spend every moment of every day making sure it does by making you happy. Give me a chance, luna. Give us a chance. Leave him. Leave rj. Be with me.
