Firefighter: Ng ]

Victoria: Oh, my god.

Firefighter: Sorry, miss, but you have to move on. You can’t be this close to the blaze.

Victoria: No, no, no, no. That’s my home.

Nikki: It was jordan. We should have known she’d go this far and yet…

Claire: Why haven’t we heard anything?

Nikki: They’ll call soon.

Claire: Fire is jordan’s weapon of choice. She told me so herself. A good fire is often the perfect solution for a bad situation. And the prison fire was successful. Why would she stop there?

Nikki: She’s pure evil.

Claire: The second she heard that victoria and I were supposedly in that house, it goes up in flames. She couldn’t wait to light that match. My aunt, the woman who raised me, who– who my whole life, she told me that she was my salvation. That it was us against the world? She couldn’t wait to burn that place to the ground with me in it.

[ Knock on door ]

Tucker: Hey, abby. Something wrong?

Abby: You actually sound concerned.

Tucker: Uh, well, if there’s a problem, then–

Abby: What game are you playing with my mom now?

Jack: Hey, thought I heard you down here. What’s got you up so late?

Ashley: I’m not sure. I won’t let me moderate to severe plaque psoriasis

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Jack: Something bothering you?

Ashley: I was so exhausted. I mean, I didn’t even change outta my clothes. Uh, then I had the most bizarre dream. It– it woke me up.

Jack: And what was the dream about?

Ashley: I was with you and traci at the athletic club and we were arguing and you were yelling and you were so loud, but I couldn’t understand what you were saying to me. And then all of a sudden, tucker was next to me by my side.

Jack: Even in dreams, he’s a nuisance.

Ashley: Yeah, he was, uh, he was trying to tell me what you were saying. You know, he was like explaining your words and translating to me. I– I don’t know.

Jack: Well, I hope you put dream tucker in his place.

Ashley: No, I didn’t because I mean, everything he was saying was making sense to me.

Jack: Okay, I don’t like the sound of that. The logical interpretation of that dream is that for some reason, tucker, of all people, would understand the situation, any situation better than you.

Ashley: That’s the whole thing, jack. In this dream, I wasn’t myself. It was like somebody I didn’t even know.

Tucker: I’m sorry, abby. I– I really have no idea what you’re talking about.

Abby: We both know that’s a lie.

Tucker: It’s been pretty clear now for a while that things are over between your mother and me.

Abby: Clear to whom? I mean, it’s clear to me that you’re messing with her head. And that’s disgusting. My mom has honestly loved you. Not just once, but twice. She defended you. My mom saw something in you that, let’s be honest, no one else has ever seen. And what, instead of realizing how lucky you were to have her, you kept pushing her over and over and over again until she lost part of herself. What, was that to make you feel more important, more powerful? And when she finally realized there was nothing to see in you, and she got the courage to leave, you started playing these games to what, punish her? Because you realized you didn’t deserve her?

Tucker: Um… would you like to sit down?

Abby: No, I don’T.

Tucker: So, what exactly has ashley told you?

Abby: No, don’t do this. You’re not gonna put this off on me or on her. I want you to come clean for once in your life. What did you do?

Tucker: Abby… if you don’t tell me what it is that I allegedly did, I can’t answer that question.

Abby: Just stop playing this innocent, clueless guy! You have never been either of those things.

Tucker: Okay. I’ll tell you what I know. Your mother has been acting a little… strange since she returned from her latest trip to paris. And at first, I thought maybe she was the one playing games, uh, or devising some revenge scheme to get back at me.

Abby: Oh, that she’s the vengeful one now, right? Is that you projecting, tucker? Do you feel guilty? Did you do something that my mom would wanna punish you for?

Tucker: She has admitted that my version of what happened between us in paris is the correct one. But who knows? There’s a possibility that, um, she’s just pretending to be contrite to set me up for something.

Abby: Set you up for what?

Tucker: I don’t know. And to be honest, abby, I’m starting not to care. I’ve moved on.

Firefighter: We’re doing what we can to subdue the fire. But the house went up fast.

Victoria: No. No. Nothing? I mean, you can’t do anything? My whole life is in that house. Everything that my kids know and love is in that house.

Firefighter: All we can do now is keep it from spreading into the woods.

Victoria: No! Dad!

Victor: Sweetheart.

[ Victoria sobbing ]

Firefighter: It’s not safe for you to be here. I have to ask you to leave.

Victor: We understand. Thank you.

Victoria: No, this can’t be happening.

[ Sobbing, sniffling ]

Nikki: Thank god you and victoria were here. And johnny and katie are at boarding school. She would’ve let you both burn with no remorse. It’ll never be enough for her until we’re all–

[ Phone ringing ] Victor, what’s happening?

Victor: The house is burning down.

Nikki: No. Oh, no. No. God…

Victor: Nothing could be saved, okay? So victoria and i are on the way home.

Nikki: How is she?

Victor: Devastated.

[ Victoria sobbing, sniffling ] Before my doctor and I chose breztri

Nikki: It is too much. First, seth, and now this. I can’t handle it. I can’t handle it.

[ Nikki sobbing ]

Claire: Nikki, tell me how to help you.

Nikki: Talk to me about anything other than your aunt. Just start and don’t stop.

Claire: Yeah. Yes. Um, I’m thinking, um–

Nikki: Tell me something funny. Tell me something outrageous or– or– or ridiculous. Just– just something to distract me, please.

Claire: Um, at the hospital, there’s this little girl, nadia, and– and she– did you ever see her? She would come to my room for story time.

Nikki: Uh, uh, nadia, yeah. Go ahead.

Claire: Well, she’s so smart and she loved the book that victoria brought me about greek mythology. Athena is her favorite– favorite goddess. And– and she’s mine too. But you– you probably know all this.

Nikki: It doesn’t matter. Keep going.

Claire: Okay. Um, athena is zeus’s favorite daughter. And one day, nadia told me that she wanted to change her name to athena so that she could be strong and brave and everyone’s favorite.

Nikki: Smart girl.

Claire: Yeah. And when she said that, I, uh, I cried a little bit, not in a sad way, but in a way that felt like she had explained something in my heart that I didn’t– I didn’t know was there. I realized that my whole life, I– I just wanted to be someone’s favorite.

Nikki: Oh, claire. Obviously, you touched her heart too. And that is an incredible gift to be able to speak to a child in a way that they feel heard and then they wanna listen. You know, when you’re completely recovered and starting to think about what you wanna do in the world, you might wanna consider something that would allow you to work with children.

Claire: Well… I’d never thought of that. Growing up, I didn’t have any plans. My future didn’t belong to me. But yeah, I need a career or a hobby, a– a way to fill my day with something that matters. And I– I would love to work with children. Seeing something so sweet and innocent in their eyes.

Nikki: They still see the magic in the world.

Claire: Yeah. And I wanna see the magic too. I don’t wanna be so jaded and– and– and disappointed in the world all the time. Maybe working with kids could give me that and then I could give something back too.

Nikki: You definitely could, claire.

Claire: Oh, but I don’t have any training and I have a record. Who’s gonna let me near their child knowing that?

Nikki: Now, don’t sell yourself short. You have plenty to offer any employer. You’re a fast learner. You can juggle a lot of things at once, and your attention to detail is amazing. And you have the best references you could. Your family who will vouch for you and tell anybody who asks how very special you are.

Claire: Thank you, nikki. That means a lot.

[ Claire sniffling ]

Nikki: Don’t worry. We’ll find a way to make that happen.

Claire: Nothing can happen until my aunt is locked away again forever. Then, my new life can really begin.

Abby: Please god, tell me that this suitcase means you’re leaving genoa city for good.

Tucker: No, I’m just going to paris for a few days. Part business, part pleasure.

Abby: Well, it would be a pleasure for me and everyone else in this town if you just made that business trip permanent. Because let me tell you, tucker, we are so over you. All of your lies and the deceit. And this constant manipulation with my mother, I don’t think you realize the effect that it has on your son, on your grandson. So please, just pack that bag and be gone for good.

Tucker: Abby, I have stayed away from devon completely at his request.

Abby: No, it’s not enough. It’s not enough because you being in town is this constant reminder of what a disappointment of a father that you are. So please, if you have any sort of ounce of decency somewhere in you, go to london, go to paris, go anywhere but here.

Tucker: I’m curious, uh, what has prompted this outrage all of a sudden tonight? Has ashley accused me of something else? Has she done something else? Something happened?

Abby: Oh, something happened, all right. She tried to convince devon to forgive you.

Jack: It was a dream. Your subconscious churning up anxiety and fear, not reality.

Ashley: What it means is that tucker’s in my head.

Jack: Look, the last time we talked about tucker, you seemed awfully confident that you were past him, that that connection was over. I know it’s difficult to just wipe someone from your mind, but– and I know it’s especially difficult when he is present and you’re dealing with him all the time. If that man would just leave town for good, we’d be better off.

Ashley: It doesn’t even matter, jack.

Jack: It would be better than this.

Ashley: It’s not gonna happen. In spite of everybody that’s turned against him, he’s not leaving town.

Jack: Then we have to find a way to get him out of your system, to break the connection. Look, as much as I hate to say this, are you sure you want him out of your life?

Ashley: Don’t get angry with me, okay? I’m not sure. I know. I mean, there’s times when I feel like I’m sure and that I’ve moved on and then this weird shift comes over me and I don’t know, I just see tucker in a different way.

Jack: Okay. Different how?

Ashley: Like maybe I should forgive him. Like maybe I shouldn’t walk away. I could try again and give it another chance.

underwear has one job.

Jack: I hate the hold this man still has on you. It’s pure manipulation, ego on his part. Just like him demanding that you cut your family off completely. He doesn’t deserve a second chance. Or your forgiveness, for that matter. What– what can I do? How can I help you break the cycle?

Ashley: You spend a lot of time looking out for me, don’t you?

Jack: No.

Ashley: I told you before, but I just– I feel like I need to deal with this one on my own.

Jack: Going it alone hasn’t exactly done the trick.

[ Ashley laughs ]

Ashley: You’re not wrong about that. Gosh. You know, I just, I don’t– I don’t know what’s going on with me, jack. I really don’T. One minute, I feel like I have completely detached from all this chaos and I know in my heart that tucker’s the worst thing in the world for me.

Jack: I’m not surprised by that. You’ve been under a lot of stress lately. You haven’t been able to regain your footing since paris. But you will. And until then, don’t be so hard on yourself. Let traci and i be there for you. You’re gonna get past this.

Ashley: I love that you believe that.

Jack: I do believe that. And you need to believe that too. Tucker be damned.

Ashley: Yeah.

Jack: Didn’t traci say you have a psychologist friend in paris who you call sometimes to get good advice from?

Aley: Yeah, I was thinking about that.

Jack: Well, it’s morning in paris right now. You could give him a call.

Ashley: That’s a good idea. And you don’t have to stay here with me. Go back to bed.

Jack: Don’t worry about me. You can’t get rid of me that easily. I have another plan.

Tucker: Ashley went to devon on my behalf?

Abby: She started by telling us that she had misinterpreted the fight that you had in paris and that she didn’t wanna do more damage to your father-son relationship.

Tucker: Really? She said those exact words?

Abby: Well, like she could do more damage than you’ve done yourself.

Tucker: And how did devon react to that?

Abby: I don’t know. Devon cares about her. But you, you are the one that ruined that relationship. So, he is not just gonna forgive you overnight.

Tucker: Sorry, I still don’t understand what you’re doing here. All worked up if nothing has changed.

Abby: Because if my mom is trying to get devon to forgive you, then she must be considering forgiving you herself. And please, if you were being honest before, if you weren’t lying and you really have moved on, then just stay away from all of us. From devon, from dominic, and my mother.

Tucker: And you, uh, you represent all of them? You speak for all of them? This is your call? A second ago you said that I shouldn’t count on devon forgiving movernight, which means that you think there’s a possibility he might forgive me in the future. Is that why you’re here?

Abby: Maybe devon will forgive you. I don’t know. I mean, I– I have encouraged him in the past to forgive you because I thought devon deserves a father. Our son deserves a grandfather. But all you do is hurt people. And if whatever’s going on with my mom, if it’s sincere, if this softening is a real thing, please don’t take advantage of it. ‘Cause I promise you, there will be hell to pay. And if my mom is planning some sort of revenge play, I support her 100%. I hope she crushes you like a bug. And if you try to pull some sleazy move on my family, mark my words, you will regret it.

Ashley: Is this the right thing? I’m scared. What? Dammit! What’s she done now? Ah, get out of my head. Can’t let this happen. Not again.

Claire: I shouldn’t have mentioned my aunt. I’m sorry. That’s not what you need right now.

Nikki: No. And it’s all right. The moment passed and jordan will be dealt with soon enough and we can all put our lives back together again.

Claire: I only ever saw photos of my mom’s house. Now, she’s lost everything.

Nikki: No, she hasn’t lost everything. She still has her most precious, irreplaceable treasures. You and all of her family. And she can buy new things and we can all recover from what jordan has put us through because we have each other. That’s how we newmans are. We protect each other no matter what.

Claire: Family.

Nikki: Yes, your family. And soon, this will all be behind you and you can put your skills to use again.

Claire: You’re really good at that. Making me feel like I have something to offer the world. But I think it’s gonna be a while before I have any kind of career.

Nikki: Well, I disagree. You’ve already made great progress.

Claire: The doctors helping me through this have been amazing. But even more than that, I feel… stronger because of the support of my new family. It has been hard to believe how kind and forgiving and generous you have all been with me. The fact that you could find a way to welcome me into your home and into your family after everything.

Nikki: Well, your aunt made that quite a challenge. But you are my granddaughter and that’s what matters the most.

Claire: Can I get you some more tea?

Nikki: Yes, please. And claire, thanks for chatting with me. It was just what I needed. I’m jonathan lawson,

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Nikki: Oh, baby. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. Oh, but thank god nobody was in the house.

Victoria: I know, I know. But mom, it’s was my home, my kid’s home. Our pictures, our keepsakes, everything is just gone.

Nikki: Things. Just things. I– I know it hurts now, but thank god everybody is safe.

Claire: Mom. Oh, I’m so sorry.

Victor: Well, we all know who’s responsible. That’s one more terrible crime.

Nikki: That woman is despicable. I wanna tear her limb from limb! After everything she has done to me and my family, she deserves to rot in hell!

Claire: I know my aunt jordan. She’s feeling alone and– and desperate. That’s why this happened.

Victor: Why do you say that?

Claire: She usually takes her time. She plans her moves very carefully. She’s far more calculated than this. This is her lashing out wildly. At this point, she’s got nothing left to lose.

Nikki: That’s not good.

Claire: It does mean that she could be more dangerous than before. But it also means she could be getting sloppy.

Jack: Look what I found. The perfect late-night snack. Heard you talking earlier. Did you call your friend in paris?

Ashley: Yeah, I got his voicemail. I left him my message. I’m sure I will hear back from him soon. Very good suggestion. Thank you.

Jack: Well, sure. If it gives you a little peace, I’m happy.

Ashley: You don’t have to wait up with me though.

Jack: Don’t worry about me. You and I can sit and eat pie and talk, or we can just eat pie.

Ashley: Actually, I think I’m gonna go for a walk and clear my head.

Jack: A wa– outsi– it’s freezing out there.

Ashley: It’s brisk and the air is fresh. And it’s exactly what I need to clear my head. Okay, but don’t you eat my pie. All right? I will be back for it.

Jack: Okay. You sure?

Ashley: I’m fine. I’ll see you later.

Jack: Be careful.

Ashley: Mm-hmm.

Diane: Hey, honey. What are you doing up?

Jack: Oh, I heard ashley pacing then I heard her come downstairs. She’s in knots again about tucker. And no matter what I say, I can’t seem to help her.

Diane: Jack, I– I think it’s time to give your sister some space. She’s battling her demons, but that is something she has to do on her own.

Devon: Hey, pretty lady.

Abby: Hey.

Devon: What’s going on? I can tell by your text something’s up.

Abby: I just had it out with tucker.

Devon: What? What happened?

Abby: I needed him to know that my mom’s new attitude towards him was not gonna open any doors. And he couldn’t just say that he would stay away from her.

Devon: Hey, why would you even waste your time talking to him? He’s too self-centered to give a damn about anybody else. He is always gonna do what he wants to do. You know that.

Abby: No, I know that. But I couldn’t just sit back and do nothing. The man is so utterly frustrating. Ooh, and it just felt so good to let him have it. I wanted to make sure that he really heard me.

Devon: What did you say to him?

Abby: Well, I didn’t just defend my mom. I told them that if he hurt anyone in my family, that he was gonna have to deal with me. And he was packing for some business trip. I told him he better make it permanent because no one wants him here. He needs to stay away from my family forever.

Devon: Wow. Well, I appreciate you looking out for all of us like that, but you know, you don’t have to protect me from tucker.

Abby: Devon, I know I don’T. But he needs to know that his intrusion in our family is not gonna be tolerated. And, of course, I’m sure he twisted something that I said and– and took it as encouragement.

Devon: Why would he take it as encouragement?

Abby: Because I told him that my mom– my mom talked to you about possibly forgiving him. He got this spark in his eye. It was almost like he thought maybe he could reconcile with you and my mom. I told him that paris was just one small thing in a long line of unforgivable things. And that my mom’s request, it’s not gonna do anything. But he just seems so hopeful. Like he thought you might give him another chance.

Devon: Yeah. I’m sure he was hopeful because I usually do give him a second chance.

Abby: Please be finished with that. Don’t ever make that mistake again. Imagine if you could get ahead of your ibs-c

Devon: Yeah. I’m definitely done doing the same things over and over again and hoping for a different outcome. I’ve been down that road way too many times with tucker, and I have no interest in getting burned again.

Abby: Well, thank you for saying that. It calms me down a little bit.

Devon: He lies too much and I don’t want that energy around our family either. But it’s my turn to tell you that you need to stay clear of him.

Abby: I want nothing more than to be done with tucker mccall. But my mom has this weird connection with him and that connection is part of what keeps him tied to our family.

Devon: I know. What do you think is really going on with your mom?

Abby: I don’t know what’s going on with my mom these days. I don’t like it. Just when I thought we were over and done with tucker mccall, why is my mom suddenly drawing him back in?

Jack: Intellectually, I understand why ashley might feel she has to work this out on her own. But do you remember the last time she fell in love with him before the wedding? Denying she had any involvement with him and then suddenly totally embracing it. And nothing I could say could talk reason into her.

Diane: Of course, I remember. But a lot of that had to do with her wanting to get rid of me.

Jack: And despite all the declarations and warnings that this marriage was only going to end badly, she married him anyway. That marriage was an unmitigated disaster. And here we go again.

Diane: Well, you don’t know that for sure.

Jack: I– I hate that we’re even talking about this despicable man. How can he possibly still have that kind of a hold on my sister?

Diane: Jack, I know that you’re concerned about her, but you have got to stop worrying. I mean, you have done everything you could to help her. I mean, I even tried for what it’s worth. But now you just– you just have to let it go and– and let her make her own decisions.

Jack: Yeah, you’re probably right. It’d be a whole lot easier if she would actually make a decision. I don’t know what’s going on with her right now. One moment, she’s confused and torn, and the next, she’s absolutely fine and full control of herself. What are we supposed to do with that?

Diane: Well, I suspect your sister is just working through some things. Give it time. When she holds a grudge, she holds it tight. And I think that very soon, tucker will start to feel the power of that grip.

[ Tucker sighs ]

Tucker: Please–

Ashley: It’s the truth.

Tucker: Please stop. You can just–

Ashley: What?

Tucker: Could you please cut this crap out?

Ashley: What crap?

Tucker: The animosity you have shown me lately, it doesn’t just vanish. You’re doing one of two things. You’re either brainwashing yourself, like I said, or you’re setting me up for something. Either way, this conversation is over. Get the hell outta my room.

Ashley: Hopefully I’ll be able to convince you someday.

Tucker: Convince me of what? And what the hell difference does it make? What is it you’re after, please?

Ashley: I think you know.

Tucker: [ Laughs ] I have no idea. I’m telling you, I have no idea what this new bizarre game you’re playing is.

Ashley: I’m not playing a game.

[ Tucker sighs ]

Tucker: Oh, ashley. Ashley. Ashley. What is going on with you now?

Nikki: Now is the time for us to turn the heat up on that monster. Flush her out and turn her sick game to our advantage. We should go to the media and let them know about her heinous attack on our family and not hold back.

Victoria: We can’t publicly accuse her of being an arsonist without any proof.

Victor: You’re right, sweetheart. If we went to the press now, that would only entice her into more violent actions against our family. I mean, I knew this woman would react, but I had no idea to this degree.

Nikki: She is pure evil!

Victor: You know, I’m gonna convince her to meet with me.

Nikki: What if you do? I mean, she’s so desperate. She’ll try anything.

Victor: She’s not gonna get the upper hand with me.

Diane: You’ve been an incredibly supportive big brother, but now it’s time to let ashley work this out on her own.

Jack: I hear your point. You’re probably right.

Diane: But you don’t wanna listen.

Jack: I never wanna listen.

[ Diane laughs ] But this time I will.

Diane: Good. I’ll take it.

Jack: I’ve noticed, you know.

Diane: Hmm.

Jack: How supportive you’ve been, how far you and ashley have come.

Diane: Well, let’s not make too much of it.

Jack: No, not too much. Just enough. After everything you’ve been through, after everything she puts you through, you’ve somehow managed to rise above and take your place in this family.

Diane: Because of you. I adore you and you deserve a peaceful household. So, I will happily do my part.

Jack: I just hope this mess with tucker doesn’t throw a wrench in our peace.

Diane: Yeah, we can hope. You know, you’ve already spread yourself so thin lately. I– jack, I– I love how much you look after the people that you care about. It’s the last thing I would ever wanna change about you. But I would also love for things to get a bit better for everyone.

[ Phone rings ]

Jack: Nikki. Hey, nikki. Are you okay?

Nikki: I’m sorry for calling so late, jack. I’m having a rough time.

Jack: Uh, where are you?

Nikki: I’m at home.

Jack: Okay, I’ll– I’ll be there in half an hour. All right?

[ Diane sighs ]

Diane: Nikki needs you.

Jack: Yeah.

Diane: And before you tell me not to, yes, I’ll be waiting up. So don’t argue.

Jack: I love you.

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Mom, hi.

Ashley: Hi.

Abby: What are you doing here so late?

Ashley: I was at the lab. I got so involved in everything, I didn’t realize it was so late and I’m starving. So, I came by to get a quick bite. You wanna join me?

Abby: No, actually we have to get home to dominic.

Devon: Yeah. Rain check though?

Ashley: Sure.

Abby: Hey, why don’t you follow us home? Yeah. We can pick something up and then if we’re lucky, dominic will be awake and he can join us.

Ashley: Yeah. No, thank you. I’m just gonna eat right here. Thanks.

Abby: Are you really here for the food?

Ashley: Why would you ask me that?

Abby: Well, there’s lots of places to eat, but here, there’s tucker and food.

Ashley: Honestly, I am not here for tucker. Okay. Don’t worry about me so much. I’m fine.

Abby: Are you sure?

Ashley: I’m positive.

Abby: Okay. Well, um, don’t stay out too late.

Devon: Have a good night.

Ashley: Thank you.

Abby: Good night. Bye.
