Devon: Hey, daniel. You have a second?

Daniel: Yeah, hey. What’s going on?

Devon: Hey. I just thought it’d be a good idea for you and I to talk to each other before everybody gets here today, because I have some things that I wanna say to you.

Daniel: Yeah, okay. Lay it on me.

Devon: Um, obviously, you know that I’m never gonna be happy about the whole situation with you and lily and how everything went down.

Daniel: Yeah, we– we– we discussed this already. And, you know, however you’re feeling about me, I understand.

Devon: Right, but you did come clean about it, and you kept your word, and I just wanna say that I appreciate you doing that.

Daniel: Well, you don’t need to praise me for that. You know, how could I not tell lily the truth? Um, I care about her, I always have, I always will. I don’t wanna make the situation worse by lying to her.

Devon: And I’m glad that you feel that way. But you know that there’s no coming back, right?

Daniel: I’m not sure what you mean.

Devon: I mean that if you wake up one morning and you regret what you did, or you think that you made a mistake, that’s gonna be your problem to deal with, not lily’S.

Daniel: Okay, um, lily is amazing. She’s somebody that I have cared about and respected for most of my life now. But I have a chance at getting my family back after I completely blew it up. So, you know, as far as regretting it, I– I don’t think that’s gonna happen.

Devon: Well, that’s great. I’m just saying in case it does, I don’t want the thought to even enter your mind that lily should give you a second chance.

Danny: Hey.

Christine: Hey.

Danny: Wow! You look gorgeous.

Christine: Thank you!

Danny: Please. So, um, did you get my message?

Christine: I did.

Danny: And? Too corny?

[ Both laugh ]

Christine: Danny romalotti singing me a beautiful voicemail. I feel like the luckiest woman on the planet.

Danny: I know exactly who the luckiest person is at this table, and it is definitely not you.

[ Christine chuckles, sighs ]

Christine: Oh!

Danny: Yeah?

Christine: Um, so about your proposition.

Danny: Right. Um… were you able to look at your schedule?

Christine: I was.

Danny: Oh, no. Not good.

Christine: It looks like I might be able to clear it for the next few months. Which means, if your invitation is still open, I would love to go on the first leg of the tour with you.

[ Christine chuckles ]

Danny: Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

Victoria: So how did everyone sleep? Let me rephrase that. Did anyone sleep?

Claire: I did. Thank you. Off and on.

Victoria: Um, once you went upstairs after your dream?

Nikki: What dream?

Claire: I was so sure I couldn’t sleep, and then I conked out right here, and in the dream, I saw my life as if I’d grown up as a newman.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness. That must have been interesting.

Victoria: That makes me so sad.

Claire: I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to upset you.

Victoria: No, no, not at you, sweetheart. I’m just thinking that I’m angry at the woman who took everything from you that you deserve to have. She can’t take anything anymore, though.

Nikki: Please tell me your dream was happy.

Claire: It was. Most of it was really beautiful.

Nikki: Only most of it?

Claire: Except for a few horrible moments where jordan crept in and turned it into a nightmare.

Nikki: Oh, you too, huh? I’m surprised she wasn’t too busy haunting my dream to be in yours.

Victoria: Well, haunting us is the only thing that she can do now, because her reign of terror is over.

Nikki: And I thought that I would feel more at peace, more in charge of my life after facing her. I don’t know why I thought it would be so simple. I mean, did I forget who we were dealing with?

Victoria: How could any of us seen that coming? That jordan would stand right in front of us and poison herself with the same toxin that she brought to use on you and dad? How could any of us seen that?

Claire: I can’t help but wonder if things should’ve ended differently.

Victor: Thank god you’re safe, okay? All of you. Had I known what that woman was up to, I would never have let you go there alone.

Victoria: It’ll take some time, daddy, but we’re okay.

Victor: Thankfully. I know what a toll this took on you, both physically and emotionally.

Nikki: Well, victoria’s right. We just need time.

Victor: You didn’t come to bed last night.

Nikki: I decided to sleep in the guest room. I didn’t wanna wake you.

Victor: Yeah, I heard you. I tried to, uh, open the guest room door, but it was locked. I know you’re trying to avoid talking to me. You kept me from that basement. The three of you were alone, facing that woman. I very much wanted to be there, take charge of things.

Nikki: You’re right. I– I didn’t feel like talking when we got home last night. Larry had already told you the rest of the story, so what more was there to say? I just needed to try to forget for a few hours and clear my head.

Victoria: I imagine you’re not very happy with the choice that we made.

Victor: No, I’m not. I didn’t want the three of you to face that homicidal maniac alone.

Lily: Thank you.

Heather: Lily, welcome home.

Lily: You already said that, heather. Remember? I went to daniel’s apartment and walked in on your warm, little, fuzzy family moment?

Heather: Yes, yeah, yeah, of– of– of course.

Lily: Right.

Heather: Um, I just wanted to say that I’m really glad that mattie is doing better, and– and it must have been so nice.

Lily: Okay, heather, I’m– I’m– I’m not– I’m not doing this with you. Okay? I don’t wanna hear your “what do you mean?” Act. All right? I left town, you got what you wanted, so good for you. Congratulations. I have nothing to say to you.

Heather: Lily, I swear to you, there was– there was absolutely nothing, and by nothing, I mean zero premeditated about what happened between daniel and I, and I– I never, ever intended to hurt you.

Lily: I know you never intended to hurt me, heather. Do you wanna know why? Because you didn’t think about me at all. I was not a consideration to you.

Heather: But that’s not true.

Lily: And do you really expect me to believe it wasn’t premeditated? I know that your feelings for daniel came back before I even left. You saw that he was the man that you wanted him to be. You saw that, and you wanted him back.

Heather: I can’t deny that, but I wouldn’t–

Lily: Exactly. So lucky for you, I left town to go take care of my daughter, and you zeroed right in on daniel.

Daniel: I, uh– I don’t expect a second chance with lily, and I’m not gonna be asking her for one. But– but what I would like is I would like to see if maybe we can make this whole situation less painful and uncomfortable for her, if you think we could do that.

Devon: I– I– yeah, that’s exactly what I’m trying to do. That’s why we’re having this conversation.

Daniel: Okay. Look, I know what I did. I– I know what it means. Do you mind if I sit?

Devon: Please, please. Are you sure you know, though?

Daniel: Okay, look, I don’t wanna sound cruel, but, the truth? None of this would’ve ever happened if it didn’t feel right, if it didn’t feel like it was inevitable. Look, man, I’ll say this as many times as you need me to say it until you hear it… I never intended to hurt lily.

Devon: I hear that, and I believe that you never set out to– to intentionally hurt her. But the reality of the situation is that you did. And what I’m talking about is trying to minimize that hurt by keeping your distance. Because I’m sure you’ll agree with me, the last thing lily needs right now is to be reminded at every turn of what you put her through, right?

Daniel: Right. Well, I’ll do my best, but, you know, the reality is we both live in the same building.

Devon: I’m very aware of that as the owner of that building. And that was a mistake on my part to think that was gonna work out.

Daniel: We also work in the same building. Omega sphere is a division of chancellor-winters. I mean, unless you’re talking about dumping it. And me.

Devon: It’s crossed my mind.

Christine: Look, man, before you get too excited about me going on tour with you, I do have, mmm, one condition.

Danny: Sure, what is it?

Christine: It would have to be first class. The whole way, right? Travel, lodging, restaurants.

Danny: Ah, wow. I– I don’t know. There– there might be a problem there.

Christine: Oh, I don’t see why, come on.

Danny: Cricket, you cannot have the true rock and roll experience going first class. No, no, it’s gotta be coach all the way, or even third class. I’m telling you, you know, lumpy beds, fleabag motels, vans, buses. It’s an adventure. Imagine this. It’s like going on a cabin trip on wheels without the tents. Trust me, you’ll love it.

Christine: Actually, I think I’m gonna have to look at my schedule again one more time.

Danny: I’m sorry, I’m confused. Where did this diva come from? You drive a serious hard bargain, counselor, you do.

Christine: Hey, take it or leave it, romalotti.

Danny: Okay. You know what? Because it’s you. Only the best, all right? This time. Next time, I don’t know, we’ll see.

Christine: Well, next time, we’ll– we’ll renegotiate.

Danny: Okay.

Christine: Maybe.

Danny: Let’s do it.

Christine: Hey.

Danny: Yeah?

Christine: Since you’re being so cooperative, how would you feel about skipping breakfast and getting us a room?

Danny: I would– I would feel really great about that. Yes. Um, give me a minute.

Christine: Mm-hmm.

Danny: Just…

Christine: Okay.

Danny: …A minute, okay?

Christine: Okay. I won’t let me moderate to severe plaque psoriasis

Phyllis: Poor bug. All alone. I’m so sad. Did you mean to sit alone, or did everybody stand you up? My heart breaks for you.

Christine: Well, thank you for your concern, but I’m fine. I’m– I’m really fine.

Phyllis: So brave. You inspire me. You don’t have to pretend with me. Cricket, I really think that you should admit it, though. You’re as miserable and lonely as you deserve to be.

Christine: Whatever you say. Now that danny is going away on tour to get away from the both of us, oh, I’m sure he’ll chill out. Maybe I’ll catch one of his shows, if not all of them.

[ Phone dings ] Cha– change of environment. It’s very therapeutic, don’t you think?

Christine: I do. You should enjoy that, yeah.

Phyllis: You’re welcome to follow along on my social media if you’d like, with all of my other thousands of followers. I don’t want you to miss out from all the fun.

Christine: Well… I do have to hand it to you, when you’re wrong, you are really, really wrong. I have to go. Take care of yourself.

Phyllis: I always take care of myself.

Claire: How would you have wanted it to end? Because I’m torn about it myself.

Victor: My dear, I wanted it to end in finality, all right? So that none of us would have to worry about this crazy woman again.

Claire: We feel the same way about that, but we had different, uh, different ideas about how that should look.

Victor: I would not have minded if that woman had rotted in hell on the basement floor. A basement she devised for both nikki and me to die in.

Victoria: Well, it was her idea to bring the poison into that basement room to try to kill you, and mom, it was her idea to drink the poison when the tables got turned on her and she got stuck in her own trap.

Victor: Of course it was her idea.

Claire: But it didn’t work. You took back control, which still amazes me.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: Well, I couldn’t stoop to her level and let her die right there in front of us.

Victor: Why not? Why would you not have wanted that?

Nikki: Do you think I dialed 911 because I wanted to?

Victor: Why did you dial 911?

Nikki: Because I had to. I– I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself.

Victor: When larry called me to tell me that the cops came and the paramedics came to save that woman’s life, take her to memorial.

Victoria: I imagine you were furious.

Victor: Of course i was furious. You know what that means? She could break out of that damn hospital and come terrorize all of us.

Nikki: I wish I could say I’m sorry.

Victor: I’m gonna call the hospital right now, see how that woman is doing. Hopefully not well.


Victoria: Is dad right? Should we have stopped you from calling 911?

Nikki: Darling, there’s no point in second-guessing ourselves. It– it can’t be undone.

Claire: Do you regret letting jordan live?

Nikki: Absolutely not. Death is too easy of an out for her. She needs to suffer behind bars for the rest of her life.

Claire: Of course she does. But look how that worked out last time she went to prison. She wanted out, so she burned the place to the ground. People died, but so what? As long as she got her way. Wherever they send her this time, she’s gonna look for the slightest opportunity. She’s gonna grab it and she’s gonna take advantage of it. She’s never gonna stop until she gets what she wants.

Nikki: Well, then we’re just gonna have to do whatever it takes to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Daniel: Wow, so making a bad business decision over a personal issue, I mean, it seems a little counterproductive, wouldn’t you say? And wouldn’t lily have the final say on this anyway?

Devon: Yeah, absolutely. She would definitely have the final say. I just don’t think that the idea of seeing you around the office and around where she lives is gonna work out in your favor.

Daniel: So you’re willing to get rid of omega sphere, even though it’s been very profitable for chancellor-winters so far over this?

Devon: If it’s what lily needs, absolutely. There’s nothing in the contract that says that we can’t keep the division and replace you. And you should know me well enough by now, daniel, you know that I will always protect my family over my business.

Daniel: You know I’m not intentionally trying to hurt lily. Right? We’ve been through this kind of thing before and we– we made it, we made it out the other side.

Devon: I understand, but that was then and this is now. It’s a completely different situation. Like you said, you guys do work together now and, you know, you cheated on her with the mother of your child while she was off taking care of an emergency.

Daniel: Which I will always be sorry about.

Devon: I’m sure you will.

Daniel: Devon, you didn’t stop billy from coming back here after they broke up.

Devon: I didn’t have much of a choice when it came to that. That’s jill’s son. You’re a different story.

Daniel: So what’s the, uh, bottom line here?

Devon: The bottom line is I don’t know what’s gonna happen to you or to omega sphere until I have a conversation with lily, but once I have that conversation, you will absolutely be the first person to know about it.

Heather: Lily, you’re acting as if I was standing outside daniel’s window just waiting for your car to go to the airport, and then suddenly I did everything I could to lure him into some romantic trap. That is not what happened. Okay, what– what happened between daniel and I, it just– it just happened, and it caught both of us by surprise.

[ Lily laughs ]

Lily: Yeah, I’m sure it did.

Heather: Look, I know that this may be hard to think about, but even if I had plotted to take advantage of your being away, nothing would’ve happened if daniel wasn’t–

Lily: Yes, heather, I know, daniel wanted it too. Trust me, I hold him very responsible for his choices.

Heather: What I’m trying to say is I– I’m really sorry that this caused you pain. And I know daniel is sorry as well. Like I said, we both didn’t see it coming, and he made it very clear that we had to keep our distance until he had the opportunity to speak to you in person. It’s not like he could just have some ongoing affair behind your back.

Lily: It doesn’t matter to me how many times you two had sex. The fact that you did it at all is what matters. You talked about your feelings for each other, and when you were gonna break it to me, and you shared your wonderful news with lucy and my brother. All of that is enough to change everything.

If you’re taking

an antidepressant,

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Heather: Well, I’m not sure what you want me to say beyond what I’ve already said.

Lily: I don’t want you to say anything, I didn’t wanna talk to you, you followed me in here, remember? So listen, I get why it happened, I understand. But it does not make it hurt any less.

Heather: I get it, lily. I mean, I’ve had my heart broken a few times myself.

Lily: This is not just another heartbreak. This is a double betrayal by both of you. I mean, daniel and I, we have a lot of history, right? Like, we ran off to malibu together. We ran off to vegas to get married. And our romance might not have lasted, but our friendship always did. And I thought that it always would.

Heather: Well, I have no doubt that that’s what daniel wants, too.

Lily: No, no, friends don’t do to me what he did. And same with you. I mean, who was the first person to welcome you back to genoa city? Who got you a job at chancellor-winters right away? If you had any respect for me, you would’ve turned me down. So you know what, heather? Honestly, don’t talk to me. Okay? Stay away from me. Don’t apologize to me. I’m not gonna absolve you. You made your choice. I will make mine.

Heather: I assume that means you’re going to fire me.

Lily: Uh, I don’t know, heather, I haven’t decided yet.

Daniel: Hey. How are you doing?

Lily: Um, I’m great, thanks.

Christine: Mr. Romalotti. It looks like you’re trying to seduce me.

Danny: Well, that’s the plan.

[ “Start again” playing ]

I’ve been thinking

about you for a while now

I know I said goodbye

but if you’re the same

just hear me out

’cause something

I can hardly say

is what I really wanna do

but here it goes

I wanna start again

with you

there’s no saying

if we’ll make it

I think it’s a chance

worth taking

but here it goes

I wanna start again

with you

I know what you thinking

I don’t mean it when I say

I’ll make it right

this time around, I promise

not to let you down

please listen

just hear me out

’cause something

I can hardly say

is what I really wanna do

but here it goes

I wanna start again

with you

there’s no saying

if we’ll make it

I think it’s a chance

worth taking

but here it goes

I wanna start again

with you

Nikki: Claire, I’m sorry I snapped at you.

Claire: It’s okay, really, it is.

Nikki: No, no, it isn’T. The three of us need to be stronger and more bonded than ever.

Victoria: We are, mom. Just a little stressed out right now, so no apologies, please.

Nikki: What’s the update?

Victor: I’m afraid I have some bad news.

Claire: What is it?

Victor: Apparently, the woman is on the mend. She’s recovering. Meaning she’ll be transferred to maximum prison very soon. Now do you understand why I’m upset?

Nikki: I suppose, but I don’t understand why you seem to be blaming me for all of this. I mean, were we supposed to just let her die right there on the floor? I mean, wouldn’t that make us as inhuman and despicable as she is?

Victor: Could you honestly think of a better way for that evil woman to end her life? By her own hand on that cold basement floor that she devised for us to die on?

Nikki: Yes, I can. A long, lonely, empty existence behind bars where she has nothing else to think about except for the fact that she failed to destroy us.

Victor: And what if she escapes from that?

Nikki: This is the punishment she deserves.

Victor: What if she escapes from that prison again? What? I would’ve called yesterday.

Victor: Anyway, no sense in discussing this any further. What’s done is done, all right? I just hope that the three of you can put the memory of that last encounter out of your mind.

Claire: Part of me hates saying this, but I wish she was gone. I will always wish that she was gone. And I understand wanting her to suffer, but… I would rather know that she could never come after us again. And if that meant watching the poison that she took do its job, I wouldn’t have shed a tear.

Victor: I couldn’t agree more. Anyway, it’s over with, okay? She’s out of our lives. Hopefully, the prison system will keep her behind walls. Hopefully they know what they’re dealing with. And please remember, when I think something’s a bad idea, listen.

Heather: And then she brought up an aspect that I hadn’t even thought about.

Daniel: What’s that?

Heather: That she doesn’t feel betrayed just romantically. She also feels betrayed in your friendship with her. And you’re one of her closest friends for almost her entire life.

Daniel: No, she’s not wrong. I mean, lily and I have been through pretty much everything together since we were teenagers, but you know, we’ve always managed to come out the other side with our relationship intact, I just– I hope that it can be the same this time, but it’s pretty much up to her.

Heather: I really hope you can, for both of you.

Daniel: Yeah, I’m– I’m sorry, heather.

Heather: Why?

Daniel: This is all because of me. My actions, my betrayal. You shouldn’t be the one that has to take the fallout.

Heather: No, don’t say that. This is because of my choices and my betrayal as well. I mean, lily was so nice to me when lucy and I came back to genoa city, she hired me at chancellor-winters and this– this is how I repay her. Facing her was, um– was pretty rough today, but I don’t wanna waste any time feeling sorry for myself because I am not the injured party. And to be fair, lily has every right to be as hurt and angry as she is at both of us.

Daniel: Yeah, but you know, she sounded so understanding when I talked to her about it. Maybe–

Heather: No, no, that’s because she was blindsided, and she hadn’t processed it yet. And– and now I– I think she’s starting to.

Daniel: What makes you say that?

Heather: Because I could see it in her eyes, just there. Uh, the anger is pretty prevalent, and I don’t think we’ve seen the full extent of her reaction to this.

Lily: Hey.

Devon: Hey. How bad was it?

Lily: How bad was what?

Devon: Whatever’s got you in this mood that you’re in.

Lily: Oh, I ran into heather.

Devon: Oh, that’ll do it.

Lily: Yeah, I go to crimson lights to go grab coffee, and she comes walking in asking me how mattie’s doing, as if she cares about anyone but herself.

Devon: Yeah, I’m sure that mattie’s nowhere on her radar at all.

Lily: No. So I tell her I don’t wanna talk to her, and I walk away.

Devon: Good for you.

Lily: Well, it would’ve been, but then she comes up to the patio and follows me, and tells me how she and daniel are so sorry, and how they didn’t plan any of this, and blah, blah, blah. Oh, god, I did not realize how upset I still am until I saw her face.

Devon: Well, I understand that completely. I mean, you just gotta try and not stay angry about stuff that you can’t control, and figure out how to let it go.

Lily: I’m sorry, why, though? Like, why should I let it go?

Devon: Well, because it’s not worth your time.

Lily: Actually, I have a lot of time and energy to spare to be upset about daniel and his new stupid girlfriend.

Devon: Well, that’s fair.

[ Lily scoffs ]

Lily: No, but I– I will move on, right? ‘Cause that’s what I always do. God, this really hurts.

Devon: I know. And again, if there’s anything at all that I can do to help you through this, just tell me, and I’ll do it.

Lily: Like what?

Devon: Uh, for starters, we can consider shutting down omega sphere and letting daniel go so he doesn’t have to be in your orbit every day. If advanced lung cancer

Lily: Trust me, I have thought of it. Cutting the omega sphere division, and letting daniel go.

Devon: Or heather.

Lily: Oh, yeah. I have fantasized about telling her to clean out her desk and pick up her final paycheck and leave.

Devon: But?

Lily: What do you mean, “but”? Like, I– I know, it’s immature, and it’s unprofessional. And, you know, daniel created omega sphere, and it’s doing great, and I hate to admit it, but heather actually is A… good attorney, and we could use her here.

Devon: Unfortunately, she is good.

Lily: Listen, if I have to just suck it up and put on my big girl pants, then just tell me. Honestly, as my business partner and not my brother.

Devon: Honestly, I think that we need to do whatever it takes to keep you focused and happy.

Lily: I think happy might be a stretch.

Daniel: We both feel bad about lily, and we both care about her feelings. It was never our intention to hurt her, but we did, so whatever happens now, we’ll handle it together.

Heather: Are you absolutely sure about that?

Daniel: There’s not a doubt in my mind. You, me, and lucy, we are a family again, and that’s something that we never in our wildest dreams thought could be possible. So that’s ultimately what we need to focus on now. Never risk losing it again.

[ “Start again” playing ]

Just hear me out

’cause something

I can hardly say

is what I really wanna do

but here it goes

I wanna start again

with you

there’s no saying

if we’ll make it

I think it’s a chance

worth taking

but here it goes…

Victoria: I’m glad that dad seems to have calmed down again.

Claire: He didn’t seem that calm.

Nikki: He’s all settled down.

Victoria: Even if he always disagrees with the way that we handled the jordan situation.

Claire: Well, he was right. It is behind us now, thank god.

Nikki: Except for the one thing that will never be behind us.

Victoria: What is that?

Nikki: This whole awful experience has brought us closer together. Grandmother, daughter, granddaughter.

Claire: You’re right. That’s something that jordan can never take away from us again.

Nikki: And we may not agree on the outcome, but… we braved it together. We truly did beat her.

Jordan: Stay calm. The poison got me out of that room. [ Laughs ] That was the point. Now, I just need to stay in here long enough to figure out my next move. To 50 years with my best friend and my soulmate.
