Tucker: Hey, jack. You got a minute?

Jack: For you, no.

Tucker: Ah, wait. It’s important. Please.

Jack: You know, I’ve been coming to this club my whole life. I love this place. What I don’t like is the increasing likelihood I’m gonna run into you. Why are you still here?

Tucker: Well, I live here.

Jack: I meant in genoa city. Isn’t glissade your new life’s work in paris?

Tucker: You know, there’s this really neat new invention. Um… what’s it called? The internet. And, uh, you can be in one place and do work in another. Unbelievable. You should check it out.

Jack: Maybe you could use it to get yourself a one-way ticket to france. There is nothing like face-to-face time with your employees, especially when you had to hire a whole new staff and board. Or are you staying away so they don’t get to know the real tucker mccall?

Tucker: Has it ever occurred to you I might move glissade here?

Claire: I’m not so sure my side of the story is gonna improve your view of me. The facts are kind of hard to ignore.

Kyle: Who says my view of you needs to be improved?

Claire: When I met you and summer and harrison, we seemed to hit it off.

Kyle: Hm. You charmed my son. That always makes a good impression.

Claire: Hm. But now you know there’s more to me than just marshmallows and bad kid jokes.

Kyle: Yeah, and I’d like to hear about it. About you.

Claire: How did a nice girl like me end up trying to poison her long-lost family?

Kyle: There’s gotta be a story there.

Claire: There is. Okay, fine. But you asked for it. It started from birth. Up until a few months ago, my whole life, who I was, where I came from, it was all controlled by my deranged aunt.

Victor: I don’t want to hear any more excuses! You find that woman!

Nick: Do not tell me.

Victor: Jordan escaped from the hospital.

Nick: How in the hell does this keep happening? I am sick of the incompetence. You had a police detail stationed outside her room with your security detail backing them up.

Victor: She burned down a damn prison. What are they not getting?

Nick: I mean, your plan worked, dad. You had her trapped in the basement.

Victor: Where she could rot. I should never have let your mother, victoria, and claire, go to see her.

Nikki: Please stop. I feel terrible enough as it is.

Nick: You heard?

Nikki: Yeah. Jordan is free to hunt us again and it’s all my fault. Nothing comes close to this place in the morning.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Nick: Don’t blame yourself, mom. Nothing could’ve prepared any of us for jordan escaping again.

Nikki: Your father disagrees. I know you were very angry with me for calling 911, for letting her live, and you’re right.

Victor: How’d you find this out before I did?

Nikki: Your security team called me at the ranch.

Victor: I should’ve been their first call.

Nikki: Well, they tried you and they couldn’t reach you, but I’m glad that they alerted me so I could be prepared.

Victor: With all the security at the ranch, you came here?

Nikki: I– I– I was a nervous wreck. Every little sound made me jump out of my skin. I– I had to get out of there and be with people.

Victor: Was larry with you?

Nikki: No.

Victor: And yet you came here. Did you stop anywhere?

Nikki: Do you mean did I stop for a drink?

Nick: No, I’m sure that is not what he meant. All right, no one is accusing you of anything, mom.

Nikki: Well, maybe you should. Because with jordan out there again, I hate to say it, but I am desperate for a drink.

Kyle: Growing up with someone like that, did you always know your aunt was troubled?

Claire: Troubled is putting it mildly, but no, I didn’T. It’s kind of hard to explain. She raised me from birth because she kidnapped me, but I didn’t know that. I only knew her as the person who fed me and clothed me, kept me safe, so I trusted her completely.

Kyle: And you never suspected a thing.

Claire: Why would I? I was a kid. She told me my parents didn’t want me, that the newmans were happy to pretend I never existed. I believed her. She claimed to love me. It never occurred to me that someone could tell you that they love you and then… willingly break your heart.

Kyle: I mean, being led to believe something like that. To let a child go through that much pain, I mean, it’s hard to understand.

Claire: There’s no explaining it, other than as the act of a vicious, vindictive person. She hated victor, she hated nikki, she hated the whole family by default, and she made sure that I did, too. It was my sole purpose in life. To get payback.

Kyle: For something that never happened.

Claire: She made me her teammate, pulled me into her lies, made me an accomplice to her crimes. I almost killed my entire family.

Kyle: But you didn’T.

Claire: I still hate myself anyway. For the trauma that I put them through. Especially nikki.

Kyle: It sounds like they know you’re not to blame for your actions. Your aunt is.

Claire: How incredible are they? To find it in their hearts not only to forgive me, but to welcome me. I owe it to them to live up to that. Work hard in therapy. Because of them, I have a second chance. I get to build a real life for myself.

Kyle: You’re right. That is quite a story.

Claire: Too far-fetched for you to believe? I bet you still think I’m a crazy criminal.

Victoria: Sorry, so sorry that took so long. It was the kid’s school, some snafu with payment. It’s all good now.

Kyle: Yeah, no problem. Gave me a chance to get to know claire a little better.

Victoria: Oh, that’s wonderful.

Claire: Is it?

Jack: I assume the part about you moving your company here was your idea of a joke.

Tucker: What, this town not big enough for the two of us?

Jack: Glissade is no competition for jabot.

Tucker: I love a challenge.

Jack: You know what, on second thought, go ahead, throw more of your money away. I would love a ringside seat to watch your further self-destruction. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna–

Tucker: No, wait a minute, hold on. This is not what I wanted to talk to you about.

Jack: What then?

Tucker: Ashley. I saw her earlier.

Jack: I told you to stay away from my sister, and I meant it.

Tucker: She sought me out.

Jack: Don’t see her human kindness as a sign of hope for the two of you.

Tucker: Yeah. That’s the thing. Because recently, I don’t see a lot of sincerity in her behavior.

Jack: She was kind enough and humble enough to admit that she misread the tenor of your–

Tucker: Kindness is not the motivating factor here, jack.

Jack: So what, you think she still has a thing for you? Think again. What happened in paris was still a fight, and it caused the end of your sham of a marriage. There will be no third act for the two of you.

Tucker: I couldn’t agree more. We are finished. But I’m really worried about her.

Jack: Take her out of your thoughts.

Tucker: She’s falling apart, jack.

for the latest trends,

Jack: How dare you pass judgment on ashley’s emotional state?

Tucker: She’s not herself.

Jack: Why, because she wants nothing to do with you?

Tucker: If it were that, I’d get it. But it all started with her misremembering the events in paris.

Jack: Which she has successfully put behind her.

Tucker: Maybe. But lately… I don’t know what to make of her. There’s something in her, um… there’s something behind her eyes. Unfamiliar to me. Something I don’t recognize. She– she’s one way, and then suddenly, she’ll be another. She’ll– she’ll text me one second that she wants nothing to do with me, and then an hour later, she’ll tell me she wants us to get back together again. And that’s got me worried. Doesn’t that worry you?

Jack: It would if I thought it was true.

Tucker: Oh, my god. How could you not have noticed this? Are you really that oblivious to what’s going on with your sister? Who— who you–

Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Now you’re gonna play your mind games on me?

Tucker: I’m not playing games here. Ashley needs help, now. And I told her as much–

Jack: You don’t get to tell her anything. You lost that right. Ashley got clarity in paris. No, maybe she didn’t remember things exactly as they happened, but the emotional truth of it was there. She wants nothing to do with you. She is done. She made that abundantly clear to me just this morning.

Tucker: Is that right? Just curious, was that before or after she told me she wants us to partner again?

Jack: At glissade.

Tucker: No.

Jack: Is your ego really so big–

Tucker: Jack, listen to me! She said she wants us to partner again in all things. All things. Now what do you make of that?

Jack: Honestly, I have been concerned that her big heart would lead her to forgive you. She’d be sucked right back in, but she’s made it abundantly clear that is never gonna happen. That she is a strong, independent woman who does not need her big brother meddling.

Tucker: And I’m telling you, in this case, I think she does.

Jack: You’ll say anything to get a rise. This is–

Tucker: She needs help, jack. And I hope you can step in because I can’T.

Jack: Good.

[ Phone chiming ] You leave ashley to us. Stop thinking about her. Stop talking about her. Stay away from her.

Victoria: No, it’s just nice to see you having a, you know, a normal conversation with somebody closer to your own age. She’s been spending a lot of time with her parents and her grandparents, so it’s nice that you’re widening your circle, maybe making some friends outside of the family. Maybe you can help with that.

Cole: Victoria, glad I found you. Listen, have you talked to your father?

Victoria: No. No, why?

Cole: Well, he’s been trying to reach you, and so have I.

Victoria: Oh, I’m sorry. I was on a call, and your message went to voicemail.

Cole: Can I talk with you and claire in private?

Claire: Well, if whatever you have to say is about jordan, you can speak freely. I told kyle the whole ugly truth, just so you know.

Kyle: Um, this sounds like a family matter, and I should– I should probably get back to harrison anyway.

Claire: There it is. That’s the reaction I was waiting for. Better run.

Kyle: I’m impressed. Not many people could bounce back after what you’ve been through. And for the record, I’m not running. I’m just giving you all some privacy.

Claire: Thank you.

Cole: Thanks, kyle.

Victoria: What? What happened? What’s going on?

Claire: Jordan escaped again, didn’t she?

Victor: All the hell that woman has put us through, I hate the most that she inflicted on you the desire to drink again. Any way we can help?

Nick: Let’s do something to distract you, mom. You want to go grab a coffee or something?

Nikki: Thank you both, but the last thing I want is to add to your worry. I shouldn’t have said anything.

Nick: You lying about the urge to drink isn’t gonna help you.

Victor: We know what that leads to.

Nikki: The best thing you can do is to make sure that jordan is caught as soon as possible, and until then, I will– I will just find ways to cope.

Nick: You have any idea how you’re gonna do that?

Nikki: Well, I saw jack earlier, and that was helpful, but that was before this news. I’ve texted him to see if he can meet me at an aa meeting, ’cause I’m going to one now. I’m going straight there.

Nick: Well, dad has put out the order to the security team and gcpd to find jordan, and they will.

Victor: If that woman has any sense left at all, she’ll stay as far away from our family and genoa city as possible.

Nick: If she’s stupid enough to come after this family again, this time we’re gonna have to do something to stop her for good.

Victor: I’m texting larry right now. He will escort you, okay?

Nikki: I just can’t stop thinking that if it weren’t for me, jordan would have died in that room.

Nick: Mom, don’t do that. You can’t feel guilty about being better than jordan. You have a moral center. You couldn’t just sit there and watch her die. You have what she doesn’T. Humanity.

Nikki: I wish I believed that.

Nick: Jordan’s taken enough from this family. She’s not gonna take that away too. No matter what. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

[ Knock on door ]

Nick: Come in.

Sally: Hey.

Nick: Hey. Um, if you’re looking for adam, he’s not here.

Sally: Uh, no, I was actually looking for you and victor.

Nick: Right. Um, if this is about, uh, you know, adam’s plan to get newman to take on your design firm, sally, it’s not a great time to try and get my dad’s attention.

Sally: No, I’m aware that your family has a lot going on. And I’m glad that victor’s doing okay, ’cause I know he was missing for a bit.

Nick: We’re dealing with it. If it’s not about the company, what’s up?

Sally: I– so, adam is flying out tonight with chelsea and connor and he’s scrambling to get things lined up beforehand. I’m not sure how up-to-speed you are on connor’s situation.

Nick: Uh, yeah, adam, uh, filled me in on the ocd. Um, I haven’t talked to him in a couple days, but I heard there was a new development.

Sally: Adam and chelsea agreed to send connor to a treatment facility on the east coast. They had to move quickly to secure a spot.

Nick: Residential. It’s a big decision.

Sally: It’s tearing adam apart.

Nick: I bet.

Sally: And connor’s not thrilled about the idea, either.

Nick: Poor kid.

Sally: Well, adam’s sole focus is connor, so I told him that I would let you and victor know, just, you know, one last thing on his plate.

Nick: Adam’s lucky to have you. Your support.

Sally: Well, I’m also here on my own mission to please ask you both to support adam. He’s really struggling with this.

Nick: Uh, yeah, it’s, uh, not a problem. I really feel for what adam’s going through. I told him I was here if he needed anything. I’ll reach out and remind him. I think he and chelsea should take the newman jet. I’ll talk to my dad and make sure it’s cool.

Sally: Thank you. Are you two really getting along better? I know adam said things were going well at the office, but I just have to imagine that there’s still some tension.

Nick: Because of you.

Sally: Well, I mean, I don’t think I get all the credit. There is a long history there.

Nick: He’s not lying. We’re, uh, we’re good.

Sally: I’m glad. It’s nice to see. Well, I should probably go find victor.

Nick: There is, uh, something I disagree with adam on, and, um, I could use your help.

Sally: What’s that?

Nick: I don’t think my dad should hear about connor from you. You know, what connor’s going through is extremely serious, and that’s my dad’s grandson. If he hears about it third-hand…

Sally: Yeah, no, I– I get it. Okay, so what do you suggest I do? Because I promised adam I would take this off his plate.

Nick: Just trust me. Don’t say anything. Let me handle it.

Nikki: So, after the nightmare that you’ve all heard about, the woman responsible was finally arrested. Getting justice has been all I’ve been able to think about. It has consumed my every thought. This woman burned down my daughter’s house. She stole an innocent child. She has infiltrated every part of my life. Even here. Our dear seth. So, when she was finally found, I was so relieved. I– I felt like I could breathe again, you know? And that she would finally have to pay for her despicable crimes. But then… I got a call that it’s not over. That psychopath has escaped from the hospital she was sent to, and she’s out there somewhere. God knows where. So now, my hope that life can go back to normal is gone. And I’m hanging by a thread yet again. Do I want a drink? Oh, yes. Hell, I want the whole bottle. I wanna drink myself into oblivion so that I don’t have to feel this– this primal rage. Yeah, that’s not strong enough of a term. It– it’s like, I’m at the top of a tree and I’m looking at a tsunami that is coming straight for me, and I know that it’s gonna take me out, and all that I have is this tiny little branch to cling to. And that is you. This program, being honest with all of you here, is my only hope of not stopping at a liquor store on the way home. I just don’t understand why she is still allowed to wreak such havoc. I mean, why can nobody stop her? It’s not fair. I mean, she is my worst nightmare that I cannot wake up from, and it’s all my– never mind. Everybody– everybody in my life keeps praising me for my strength, my moral fiber, and it’s just not true. I hate that woman with everything in me, and I prayed that she would rot in jail and spend the rest of her life suffering for what she’s done. But I prayed for the wrong thing. I wish she was dead. Looking for a smarter way to mop?

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue…

Nikki: Thank you for escorting me back, although it wasn’t really necessary. Victor put larry back on my security details, so…

Jack: I’m not here for your safety. I think you know that. You’ve been awfully quiet. I thought maybe you’d want to talk some more once we got here.

Nikki: What more is there to say after that meeting?

Jack: I don’t know. You tell me. It seems that was just the tip of the iceberg.

[ Nikki sighs ]

Nikki: It’s just all too much.

Jack: Well, I know it feels that way. You can do this. You are doing this. And look, I am sorry that my cheerleading of your moral superiority put undue pressure on you. I never intended that.

Nikki: Oh, jack, no. It– it’s not just you. Nicholas says the same thing. It just feels like such a lie when the only reason I called 9-1-1 was to prolong jordan’s suffering. There was no moral code at work. And rage is one thing, but the guilt is quite another.

Jack: Sometimes, sharing brings out unexpected feelings. But they’re out there, and it’s so much better than letting them fester, even if it doesn’t feel better in the moment.

Victor: Well, you’re back.

Nikki: Hi.

Victor: I guess you made it to the meeting.

Jack: Yes, I did.

Victor: Thank you for that. I’ll take it from here, jack.

Jack: If you want to talk any further.

Nikki: Thank you for being here for me.

Victor: She looks worse than she did before.

Jack: The meeting took a lot out of her, but I– I think it did her good.

Victor: Certainly doesn’t seem like that.

Jack: Progress doesn’t happen quickly, victor.

Victor: Be honest with me. Are these meetings too hard for you?

Nikki: Uh…

Victor: Hm?

Nikki: No, I– I do feel better.

Victor: Well, darling, I know you. I know you’re trying to cover up. All this has shaken you up. You don’t have to do that for my benefit.

Nikki: I’m just so scared. I mean, fighting the urge to drink, it’s so much harder than I thought. It is a war, a constant war, and I worry that it’s gonna get worse.

[ Victor sighs ]

Victor: I promise you, we’ll get over it. We’ll fight this. Meanwhile, I have a plan. It’ll work on two fronts.

Victoria: Does my mother know about this?

Cole: Uh, I’m not sure. Victor reached out to me when he couldn’t find you, and I told him I would track you down, let you both know. So, I just assume that nikki’s been informed.

Victoria: We can’t be sure about that. My father didn’t tell her about the fire at the prison because he knew it would upset her too much, and this is much worse than that. This is gonna rock her to the core.

Cole: Well, that’s true, and he’s also gonna have to protect her and not have her out there thinking that she’s safe.

Claire: I can’t believe this is happening again.

Victoria: Did we make a huge mistake confronting jordan? Did we cause this?

Nick: Hey. I’ve been looking for you. Did you get any of my texts?

Adam: I’m sorry, man. I’m– I’m under the gun. Chelsea and connor are upstairs, and I’m still trying to get us on a flight.

Nick: Yeah, sally told me what’s going on. Um, it sounds like the clinic you found is promising, and the fact that you got a spot there is great.

Adam: Yeah, well, none of it feels great.

Nick: Adam, take the jet. I’ve already set it up. The crew’s ready. You can leave whenever you want.

Adam: Oh, thank you, okay? That is helpful. That is very helpful.

Nick: I wish there was something else I could do. You hanging in there?

Adam: You know, all of this, it just happened so fast. Other than that, I’m just pushing through.

Nick: Yeah, no parent should ever have to face a diagnosis like this, and no kid should ever have to live through it. How’s connor doing?

Adam: He’s terrified. He’s mad at us. But he agreed to give it a shot.

Nick: Is there anything else you or chelsea need?

Adam: No, I think now that we have a way to get there, we’ve got everything else covered. You know, chelsea handled all the arrangements with the facility. She insisted on it. I think she just wants to keep herself busy so she doesn’t fall apart.

Nick: Yeah, that’s understandable.

Adam: Yeah. Well, it’s been rough on both of us, feeling like we missed something, wondering how we came to this point. But I worry that she’s being even harder on herself.

Nick: Given her own struggles.

Adam: Yeah. To be honest, I worry that she could spin out.

Nick: Adam, don’t go there. Chelsea’s gonna need all your support without the added pressure of you worrying about her frame of mind. All right? How about billy?

Adam: What about him?

Nick: Well, I’m sure he’s stepping up for chelsea.

Adam: Yeah, he’s always in the background giving his two cents to her and to connor.

Nick: Adam, you’re the father. There’s no competition there. If billy is willing to offer his support to chelsea and connor, then you take it. If your kid’s in trouble and needs help, it’s all hands on deck.

Adam: I know, I know, I know. You’re right.

Nick: Good. I hope you know I’m in your corner, too. All right? For whatever you need, you just have to ask.

Adam: Well, I’m glad that you caught me. I didn’t realize I could use the pep talk.

Nick: Something else I want to talk to you about. Sally told me that you asked her to fill dad in on all of this. I told her not to.

Adam: Don’t you think he would want to know?

Nick: Of course, he’s gonna want to know. But it shouldn’t come from sally. It shouldn’t even come from me. You need to talk to him, adam. And you need to do it before you leave.

Kyle: Hey, dad, glad you’re home. I don’t know if mom said anything to you about it, but she and I had a difference of opinion on how I handled some tweaks to our proposal.

Jack: You can stop right there. I know all about this. Your mother and I discussed it, along with the fact that she doesn’t consider your changes tweaks.

Kyle: Did you read the first draft?

Jack: I did.

Kyle: And do you really think I overstepped?

Jack: I’m not gonna get in the middle of this. I told your mother as much. You two are gonna have to work this out.

Kyle: That’s fair. We don’t need you running interference on some edits to a presentation. But, dad, I really think there’s a bigger issue at play here. Do you know why mom had such a problem with it?

Jack: Do you?

Kyle: She thinks I resent her getting the co-ceo position, and she’s looking for any evidence to prove that.

Jack: And is there any truth to her suspicions?

Kyle: Yes.

Nikki: All right, I’m listening. What’s your plan?

Victor: Have you forgotten about our special day coming up?

Nikki: What, the anniversary of our first wedding?

Victor: Yes.

Nikki: Of course not. Even with everything that’s been going on, I– I haven’t forgotten. I– I never would.

Victor: Okay.

Nikki: But given the circumstances, I think we should have a quiet celebration.

Victor: No, no, no, no. I want a big party. I want to celebrate our love. But before we have the party, I have another idea. Let’s you and I go on a trip. Just the two of us.

Nikki: Well, that sounds lovely, but…

Victor: No buts. I want you to get away from the jordan woman and get out of genoa city. Away from all the triggers that will lead you to the bottle.

Nikki: You said it would help on two fronts. What’s the other one?

Victor: Well, think about it. I mean, if you and I are gone, then jordan has no targets. She’ll get out of town.

Nikki: You don’t know how much I want to believe that.

Victor: Then do, baby, do.

Nikki: All right, yes.

Victor: Come here.

Nikki: Yes, victor, please.

Victor: Come here.

Nikki: Take me away from all this.

Victor: Anywhere your heart desires, okay? Sometimes, the lows of bipolar depression

Adam: Look, I don’t have time to talk to dad right now.

Nick: Make time. The jet’s ready for you. You don’t have to worry about that. Dad’s gonna be very upset when he finds out what you’ve been going through without looping him in.

Adam: Okay, well, it’s only because he has enough on his plate right now with nikki and claire, not to mention jordan.

Nick: This is dad we’re talking about. Family is always his number one priority.

Adam: Yeah, I guess.

Nick: You’re his son. Connor’s his grandson. He loves you both very much. All right, he wants to be a part of everything, whether it’s good or bad. Just talk to him. At least just to fill him in on what the game plan is.

Adam: You’re right. Okay, I guess I just haven’t had a chance to think straight.

Nick: That’s what I’m here for.

Adam: Look, nick. Thank you, okay? It means a lot. You showing up for me.

Nick: Safe travels. Good luck.

[ Adam sighs ]

Kyle: It does annoy me to see mistakes mom’s making, even small ones. I mean, the presentation I fixed, it was clearly rushed.

Jack: Last I checked, proofreading wasn’t one of the job duties under coo.

Kyle: Okay, I guess I am looking for signs, too, that she’s not up to the job, and maybe I am too quick to point out her mistakes.

Jack: Well, I’m impressed that you recognize that and admit it.

Kyle: Hm. I’m working on the whole maturity thing.

Jack: So, do you think you and your mother can find some way to break this unhelpful cycle?

Kyle: You’re right. This is my issue to work through. I’m sure I’ll figure it out.

Victoria: Mom, how are you?

Nikki: I take it you’ve heard the news?

Victoria: Yeah, I don’t believe it.

Claire: We should have known.

Cole: Well, the question is, how do we deal with jordan being on the loose?

Victor: Well, I know that the gcpd is doing everything they can to locate jordan and put that woman back behind bars.

Nikki: In the meantime, your father and I have decided to take a trip to get away and to celebrate our anniversary.

Victor: And a big party. Celebrating the special milestone.

Victoria: Well, of course, you deserve to celebrate, but do you think that’s wise right now?

Victor: Sweetheart, I’m gonna make sure that security is really beefed up around here.

Victoria: But how much security? Jordan could shift her focus to claire while you’re gone.

Claire: Doesn’t matter if it does. We’ll handle it. My grandparents deserve a vacation more than anyone.

Victoria: Okay, I agree. I do. But I’m concerned about your safety.

Claire: Don’T. Jordan can’t get to me anymore. Because I no longer fear her.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Cole: You know how you’re always asking questions about your mother and me and the life you missed? Instead of telling you stories, we could show you.

Claire: Show me what?

Victoria: Where it all began for us.

Nikki: What’s this?

Waiter: Courtesy of a gentleman from the bar, mrs. Newman.

Nikki: There’s no one there.

Waiter: He must have just left.

Nikki: What’s in this drink?

Waiter: Triple premium distilled vodka.

Nikki: Take it away. Please, take it away.

Traci: You all right? Where’ve you been?

Ashley: I don’t know. I came here to find love.
