THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!

dillon as requested, the best table in the house. Thank you. Here you go. And your waitress will be right with you. Taking me out to celebrate. Only the best for my lovely bride tonight. Happy anniversary. Just a little bit early. Man, early, late. Every single day with you is a celebration. -Hi. -Hi. Everything okay? Fine. I just thought you might want to know your daughter’s here with her husband. Oh, kristina, hi. Ava. Hi. Uh, I just came to see my dad. Um, is he here? Yeah. He — he’s here, but he’s not really available. He’s resting. I’ll tell him you came by, though. Um…no. I’m actually — I’m just gonna wait for him because I really need to speak to him tonight, so… who’s that? Hey! Hey. Just what I need — a visit from one of my favorite daughters. One of? Well, you know, definitely top three.

[Chuckles]

[ Cellphone rings ] Drew. Hi. Hey, carly. Wow, it’s really great to hear your voice. And yours. Look, I’m calling because i need to get in touch with jason, and I don’t have a way to reach him. Oh, well, I mean, he has a phone now. I can give you his number. You know what? Just — just give him a message, please. Tell him that I got a little visit from the fbi this afternoon. Thank you, and thank you for meeting me in the parking lot. This isn’t the best area of town. Why did you want to meet here in the first place? Because this… is gonna be my office.

[ Laughs ] That’s sonny’s office. Not anymore.

[ Doorbell rings ] You must be isaac. Come on in.

[ Sighs ]


I didn’t know michael and willow were coming in tonight. Yeah, they’re celebrating their anniversary. But their anniversary isn’t until later this month. Well, there’s a note on the reservation that it’s an anniversary celebration, and somebody called ahead for a special dessert. Oh. Okay. Thanks. I can’t believe it is a few more weeks until we have been officially married for a year. I know, I know. And I know that our actual wedding anniversary is in the middle of the run up to chase and brook lynn’s wedding, so I figured that we should celebrate tonight. But nothing says that we can’t sneak off and have some alone time that night, too. Well, I am so glad we did this. We have a lot of anniversaries to look forward to, but the first one is a big milestone, and it is so nice to be here alone with you. I know. I feel the same way. Champagne for the table. Oh, I — I think there’s a mistake. We didn’t — we didn’t order that. Uh, that’s my gift. Happy anniversary.

[ Sighs ] Come on in over here. Have a seat. Put your feet on the table if you want. Are you hungry? ‘Cause I’ll grab you something to eat. No, no, no, I’m good. Dad, you don’t have to fuss over me. Well, you can’t blame a father for worrying about his pregnant daughter. I know, and I love that about you, but I’m good. How about something to drink, then? Um, yeah. Actually, ava, could give me a water? Yeah. Of course. So, it’s late. What’s going on? Uh, well, I… I ran into josslyn at bobbie’s, and we kind of got into it. There may have been some yelling. What are you fighting about? You. Well, that’s not surprising, ’cause josslyn isn’t one of my fans, you know? Yeah, she’s definitely, uh — she’s on the warpath. But it just drives me crazy. She — she always has to be right about everything. You know? That holier-than-thou attitude. Just so annoying. Doesn’t matter what she thinks. You know why? Because you shouldn’t have to defend me. I wanted to. Kristina… these are my battles, not your battles.

[ Sighs ] I know better than to engage with her, anyway. Just couldn’t help myself. Maybe it was just the pregnancy hormones, which are no joke, by the way.

[ Chuckles ] Here you go. Thanks. Sure. Sonny. The fbi questioned you about jason? Yeah. At least they came to my office and they didn’t drag me in for a formal interview. They, uh… they wanted to know how much contact I’ve had with jason since he resurfaced.

[ Scoffs ] That’s ridiculous.

Well, I mean, not really. If you didn’t know us, I mean, we’re brothers, right? So you might think that he would confide in me. Well, I’m sorry you got dragged into this. At least we know that he didn’t shoot dante. Did he happen to mention where he’s been since 2021? No. He hasn’t said much. Never does. Just take care of yourself, carly. Stay out of whatever trouble he’s in. Okay? If not for yourself, then for josslyn and for donna. They need you to take care of them. Jason can take care of himself. Sonny and i were partners. I still own 50% of corinthos coffee, or I did. No, you do. Or, you will. Once the necessary paperwork has been filed. Okay. Uh, what about everything else? I know I left my state equally divided between jake, danny, and the other half went to carly. Nobody’s asked anything. Nobody seems to know what’s going on. What happened? The short answer is, your estate has been in probate the whole time. Okay. Why? W-what’s the problem? Because the law is complicated. There are a lot of hoops to jump through. Normally, it takes seven years for a certificate of death in absentia to be issued. And that was necessary in this case because we could not find your body, which is now very evident as to why. Okay. And even with the notarized statements that I had from witnesses who all claimed that no one could have survived that cave-in in greece, it still should have taken several years. But strangely enough, the government issued a certificate of death in absentia for you the moment I filed the paperwork, which leads me to believe that someone behind the scenes was working in your favor.


Thank you. But, uh, look, if we were going to order champagne, we would have done it ourselves. Well, that’s just the start. You know, I arranged for the chef to prepare you a fabulous five-course dinner. You know, only our finest dishes — my treat. Nina, the last time we spoke, I made it clear that I don’t want to see you. I didn’t mean to intrude. I-I’m just confused because you were here, so I thought… well, michael asked me where I wanted to go, and I picked the metro court because I have always liked it, and I didn’t want to avoid it because of you. I thought the fact that you hadn’t reached out for the last few weeks meant you accepted and honored my wishes. Okay. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt. I just thought since you were here — it doesn’t matter what I thought. I’ll just, um… I’ll cancel everything, and, uh… I won’t bother you again. My god, was that as awful as it felt? It was pretty bad. This is my fault. We should have gone to the grill or caf√© cherie. No, hey, no, no. Willow, you wanted to come to the metro court because you love their chocolate souffl√©, and I wanted to bring you here because you love their chocolate souffl√©. And I love you. But it was wishful thinking that nina would actually keep her distance. That’s on her. It’s — it’s not on you. Look, we’re here, together. It’s our anniversary. The chocolate souffl√© has already been ordered, so let’s just have a glass of wine and celebrate. You really are the best husband. Yeah, and don’t you forget it.

[ Chuckles ] Ah, that water really hit the spot. Think I dehydrated myself yelling at josslyn. You know what you got to do next time? You got to take a deep breath and just walk away. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. You’re right, dad. What josslyn thinks doesn’t really matter. So what else is going on? How’s work? Uh, work’s fine. Everything’s fine. Oh! I do have some good news, actually. Um, ali — blaze — is going to be the new face of deception. Yeah, I knew that ’cause I ran into blaze’s mother at the metro court when I was meeting with lois, and natalia was gonna talk to brook lynn about everything. Uh, yeah. Small world. It’s a smart move for both blaze’s career and deception, though, and I think they’re gonna have a lot of crossover exposure there, so that’s cool. Well, I’m just worried how it’s gonna affect you. What do you mean? Well, I mean, blaze, the new face of deception, is gonna get famous, more famous. And, you know, I mean, do you think you can deal with that, with everything you got going on? Yeah. Yeah? Yeah, I do. I don’t think that spotlight’s gonna fall on me at all, honestly. I mean, maybe if ali were out publicly, but she made a deal with her mother to keep her personal life personal, so… how do you feel about that? Carly, I’m gonna kill her! I’m gonna kill her. That’s it. Whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re gonna have to bail me out of prison ’cause I’m gonna kill her. Kill who? Nina! She fired pierce! Can you believe it? Pierce? The room-service waiter? Yes! Some picky guests had a little mix-up with the order, which has been known to happen during peak hours when the guy gets a little bit overwhelmed, but… yeah, but we just apologize for him, comp the order, and pull back on the amount of orders he was filling. Yeah, of course. That’s what you and I would do. Not nina. She looks at his record. She sees that there’s a couple of complaints, and off he goes.

[ Scoffs ] Well, you have to hire him back. Well, of course I’m gonna hire him back. But the guy was heartbroken and mortified. The whole staff knew about it. I can’t believe she fired pierce. You know, he’s been with the metro court since it opened. It’s like the woman has been on a rampage ever since sonny dumped her. Well, getting dumped isn’t an excuse. I can’t believe she fired sweet pierce. Yeah. And she did it without input from you, her partner. Well, that’s not the only thing she’s done without input from me. If you have my death certificate, why is my estate still in probate? Because there were various rumblings about money laundering and racketeering. Come on, diane. We know all the assets in my will are legitimate. Which needed to be proved to the government’s satisfaction. The wheels of justice turn very slowly when an estate as large as yours needs to be vetted. But this is great news because none of your assets have been disbursed. Your estate is intact. You should be able to reclaim it with a minimum of fuss. Okay. What about carly? I mean, why is she running bobbie’s? Why did she give up the metro court? Well, yeah. She didn’T. She didn’t? Mnh-mnh. Then what happened? In a word — nina.


Tell the truth. About what? If nina hadn’t tried to comp us champagne, were you going to order a bottle? I thought we weren’t gonna talk about nina. You’re right. Consider the subject changed. Okay. Well, good, because we’re celebrating, right? Yes. Right. And what is a celebration without… a little gift? Michael.

[ Stammers ] No, we said no presents. I didn’t get you anything. I know, I know what I said then, and I mean it, because you know what? Honestly, I have everything I could ever want. But you, my beautiful bride, deserve the world. Oh, my goodness.

[ Chuckles ] Michael… it’s stunning. I’m glad you like it. Who wouldn’t like this? It’S… oh. Thank you so much. I love it. I just wish I had more places to wear it. What do you mean? Well, something this fancy doesn’t exactly go with my scrubs. But I will — I will save it for special occasions. Okay. Well, I’ll make sure I’ll, uh, make more of those occasions happen. It’s a deal.

[ Chuckles ] How did you decide on this? Wiley actually picked it out. Wiley?

[ Both laugh ] I brought him to the jewelers. I narrowed it down, and he chose that one. He never said a word to me. Well, he’s very good at keeping secrets. Well, it probably helps that wiley’s in bed asleep half the time when I get home. I constantly feel like I’m playing catch-up and missing things with the kids. I mean, sometimes I only hear about their day from you or the nanny. They’re only gonna be this young once, and I feel like I’m missing so much. What color would you say that is? Light yellow. Yes. Thank you very much. According to nina, this is either off-white, chartreuse, or my personal favorite, greenish gold.

[ Laughs ] The woman is insane. Well, that’s for sure. She’s taking advantage of me being distracted with dante in the hospital and everything, and she painted all the bathrooms on the fourth floor that color. Oh, wow. That can’t look good. Uh, no. Everyone looks like a walking corpse. Oof. Well, I mean, at least it was only one floor, right? So far. Who knows what she’s gonna do the next time I have my back turned. I swear, carly, the woman is a menace. For many reasons. Can I get you something? Can I get you a coffee? No, I just needed to vent. Thank you. Thank you very much. Okay. See you later. Bye. Hi. Oh. We’re closed. I’m sorry. I’m looking for diane miller. She asked me to bring these documents to a meeting with jason morgan tonight at this address. Uh, well, I mean, he stays here, but he’s at his corinthos coffee office. Maybe she’s meeting him there. Do you have that address, by any chance? You know, actually, I’m on my way there. I can drop off those documents for diane, if you want. Really? That would be a lifesaver. Thank you so much. Oh, no. Thank you.

[ Chuckles ] What does nina have to do with the metro court? Ha ha! Where do I begin? Well, before I left for greece, sonny and carly were back together, and nina was behind him. Well, their marriage fell apart shortly after you left. Details not necessary. Suffice to say, sonny chose nina over carly. Then, drew and michael hatched an ill-advised scheme to get control of elq by merging it with aurora media. Carly wanted to help. She wanted to invest. So she leveraged her half of the metro court. And then, when the deal fell apart, carly took a huge hit financially. She didn’t tell — she didn’t tell me any of this. Carly could not buy back her half of the hotel, so nina swooped in and purchased it. Bobbie gave the diner to carly to help her back on her feet. Okay. Why would nina want the hotel?

[ Chuckles ] Because nina reeves thinks that carly is the reason for everything that’s wrong with her life. So after she took her husband and her hotel, nina turned drew and carly in to the feds for sec violations. Now, your brother took the blame, did some prison time. But carly had to pay a $5 million fine and almost lost her house. But she didn’T. Nope. She didn’T. Somehow she’s managed to hang on. In fact, she’s building back her life. You know, carly’s not the easiest client I’ve ever had, but she’s astonishingly resilient. Yeah. She is. I’m fine with the way ali wants things to be. Really? Yeah. Blaze is a famous musician, and she… you know, she works hard, and a lot of people in the public eye, they want to keep their personal lives personal. You know? They’re already on display so much as it is. So, I get it, that, you know, she would want to keep some things to herself. That’s true. I mean, it would be the same thing if I were dating a male musician who was some up-and-coming hot new artist, and I wouldn’t want to be joined at the hip with him, either. I want to be known as my own person. I want to be known for my own achievements and not just be someone’s girlfriend. Well, you work so hard, no one’s gonna think that. What do you mean? Maybe not. But I also love my anonymity. I don’t want to be recognized in public. And I have to think about looking good whenever I go out? Are you kidding me? That’s not for me. But I’m — I’m proud of ali. I saw her when she was going into a meeting with nina at crimson, and I thought, “oh, my gosh, she is gonna be on the cover of crimson, and she — she deserves it.” Really happy for her. Nina’s at crimson? Yeah. I thought you knew that, dad. No, I didn’t know. I didn’t know that. Yeah, yeah. She is, and no offense to carly, but I’m really glad, for ali’s sake, at least selfishly, I think it’s great that nina is back. She just has more experience, you know? And with ali being the face of deception, she’s — she’s gonna need that. Well, I’m happy for nina, because, you know, she always loved that magazine. But some– something seems off here. What do you mean? What do I mean? Why would drew hire back the woman who put him in prison? You won’t believe what just happened. Does this have to do with crimson? No. Well, then too bad — I tried to do something really nice for michael and willow for their anniversary, and I got completely shut down. I wanted to comp michael and willow dinner and champagne. And michael, of course, immediately said no. And willow felt like she had to side with him. And I have no one! I need some help. You — you — you can help me. You can help me find a way to get back into my daughter and my grandkids’ lives. No, I can’t help you. I don’t have to help you. All I need to do is talk to willow alone. Nina, if you’re trying to get some sympathy, you came to the wrong guy. I don’t want sympathy. I want you to help me. Come on. Nina, you gotta take responsibility for your own actions. You are the one that ruined your relationship with michael and willow, right? You burnt that bridge. There’s nothing that I can do. No, that’s where you’re wrong. Now that I’m back at crimson, you can appoint me to the aurora board of directors. Then michael will be forced to deal with me. Yeah, and this will be the start of my way back in. And why would I help you? What — what would I get out of this? For one thing, it would drive carly crazy.


Carly expects all the men in her life — sonny, jason, you — to be wrapped around her little finger, no matter how poorly she treats them. Except I’m not in carly’s life anymore. Oh, that doesn’t matter to carly. Come on, drew, you’re not this naive. She expects you to be loyal to her even though she’s not loyal to you. And you know I’m right. Her sense of entitlement knows no bounds. See, if you promote me to the board of directors, she’ll think… that we’re allies or maybe even friends, and that’ll drive carly crazy. And she’ll come running to you, begging for your attention. I have already started the process of having your accounts reinstated. Once that happens, you will have complete access to everything. Good. In fact, my paralegal was supposed to come to this meeting tonight. Bring us some documents for you to review and sign. But I’m guessing, with the hour and the location, they got a little too nervous to come down. I will have everything to you tomorrow, latest. Okay. Thank you. Hold on, hold on. I need you to do something else for me. Name it. Sonny made it very clear that he doesn’t want to see my face or hear from me again. So I want you to let him know that I’m taking back my half of the company, and I’m gonna be working right here. It’s up to you, willow. What I said from the beginning still stands, and I’ll support you if you want to keep working, and I’ll support you if you want to quit. Getting my nursing degree was hard, and I really wanted to get back to work. But the truth is that i do have the luxury of spending more time at home with our kids. I mean, wiley’s school is half day, but amelia is still so little. I want all those sweet baby moments. And I notice you’re not saying anything. Well, I just — well, I don’t want to influence you. But…? But nothing, really. It really is your choice. Look, we — we have plenty of money.

You have plenty of money. No, we — look, it’s your money, too, willow, ’cause we’re a family, right? You, me, wiley and amelia. And what’s best for our family is for you to do what you feel is right. Well, it is an incredible luxury knowing that I don’t have to work, that I could choose something different, something that gave me more time with the kids. And maybe —

[ Sighs ] Maybe it is time I really thought about it. Okay. Look, if — if — if you do decide not to keep working at the hospital, there is other work you can do, more flexible, and you’d still be doing a lot of good. Pl ease tell me moreabout this flexible do-gooding occupation you describe. So, my great-grandmother, lila, she, um — she was on the board for several charities, nonprofit charities, and they did amazing things. And, willow, you could choose a charity — charities — that you’re interested in, and you could really make a difference. And you can work it around your schedule with the kids. I mean, you’d have the best of both worlds. I wouldn’t worry about it. If drew is up to something, nina will figure it out. She can take care of herself. Yeah, yeah, you’re probably right. Uh, you know, it’s, uh, getting so late, and I have plans with blaze, so I’m gonna get going. Hate to drink and run, but… all right. I love you. I love you, too. Ava. Well, other than her little tiff with josslyn, kristina seems good. Yeah, she does. So, did your friend nina tell you that, uh, she got her job back at crimson, and you just… didn’t mention it, or…? No, that’s not what happened. Oh. In fact, nina’s phone must be lost under some photographs on her desk because I haven’t heard from her. And maybe those divorce papers she hasn’t signed yet are there, too. I didn’t know you were keeping track. Well, I — I just know you want things settled. It was none of my concern.

[ Laughs ] Yeah, I guess you’re right.

[ Grunting ] Unh!

[ Car horn honking ] Hey! Leave him alone! Oh, my god. Oh! Oh. Are you okay?

[ Groans ] Oh, god. Oh. Can you hear me? Can you hear me?

[ Groans ]


Oh, my god! John? John, can you hear me? Look at me. Look at me, john. Hi. Do you know who I am? Yeah, carly spencer. Okay. That’s good, that’s good. Thank god. Oh, my god. Oh, no, no! Here, let me help you. Let me help you. No, it’s — it’s okay. I got it. You’re not — you’re hurt. Come on. Look, I’m gonna call 911. They couldn’t have gotten far. No, don’T. Why? They jumped me from behind. I can’t identify them. It’s pointless. Oh, my god. Why did they attack you? I mean, was it a robbery? Did they take anything?

[ Grunts ] No, they didn’t take anything. Well, okay. I must have scared them off when I — when I pulled up and I started yelling at them. Either that or robbery wasn’t their intention. Oh, no, no, no. John. Let me help you. Come on. Let me help you. Oh. All right. Uh, we need to get out of here in case they decide to come back. And I’m gonna walk you to my car, okay? I’m gonna take you up on that. Okay. Lean on me. You okay? Yeah. Willow, I know how important nursing is to you, but it doesn’t have to define you. And I personally believe that you would be happy and fulfilled raising our kids and working with these charities, and you would be amazing at both. Even after all this time, sometimes I still forget how much you believe in me. Well, yeah. Always. It’s kind of crazy, growing up like I did. I just never dreamed that, one day, I would be in a position to have this kind of choice. You make me feel like the luckiest person in the world. Right back at you.

[ Knock on door ] I gotta get that. Yeah. Hello. It’s pretty late, diane. What’s wrong? There’s nothing wrong. No, no. I am here on behalf of another client. Jason? Yes. With jason’s return, his estate will immediately be pulled from probate. All of his assets will be returned to him, and he has asked me to inform you that he will be resuming his half interest in corinthos coffee. Oh, that’s not gonna happen. I just came from the warehouse where he is setting up his office. Message received. And, drew… just because carly comes running, doesn’t mean that you have to let her in. You already played hero for her. Do something for yourself for once. By doing something for you? By helping me get close to my daughter. Willow has made it very clear. She doesn’t want to get close to you, nina. She doesn’t want to know you at all. Please, can you just have a little compassion? You know what it’s like to be separated from your child. And whose fault was that? How dare you demand my help with your kid when you got me locked away from mine. I didn’t create those consequences. You and carly did when you broke the law! The excuses — the excuses keep coming! Okay! I understand that no one can penetrate that perfect, shiny victimhood of yours! Don’t turn away when I’m talking to you. What is wrong with you?


Okay. All right. Be careful. Take it slow. Yeah, yeah. I just want to get to the couch. No, no, no! Careful! You don’t want to injure yourself even worse getting there. Just slow down, all right? God, why wouldn’t you let me take you to G.H.? I think I’m okay. Really? You’re not a medical professional. I mean, the doctors would know for sure. No, I just need some ibuprofen. Just, my head is pounding, is all. Well, it’s no surprise there. What the hell were you doing walking around the waterfront at this hour? Two blocks from corinthos coffee? Look, that is not important right now. I appreciate you walking me in, and I can take it from here. Yeah, what you need to do is sit down. You need to rest. I’m gonna go get you some ice and water so you can take that ibuprofen. That is not necessary. I can do it myself. Can you please stop trying to be so macho? I will accept that you won’t go to the hospital if you accept that you need my help. Deal? Deal. Okay. Come on. I’m gonna help you sit down. Come on.

[ Groans ] Be really careful sitting down. You might have some broken ribs. Okay, okay.

[ Gasps ] Oh. Thank you. You’re welcome. Something wrong? Oh, no. I just, uh… it’s just aurora business, but I’ll talk to drew about it tomorrow. Tonight is about us. How is drew? Does he seem okay to you? He seems fine. Why? I was just thinking how weird it is that when we were hiding jason and taking care of him, we never asked drew for help. Even though you two work together, and he is jason’s brother. Thing is, um, jason and drew aren’t very close. It never even occurred to me to tell drew. And, honestly, he hasn’t said a word about jason’s return, and I didn’t think I should be the one to bring it up to him. I just feel bad for drew. It must feel like things changed overnight to him. One minute, your mom and drew are a solid couple, and then jason comes to town, and carly and drew break up, and then the two of us basically stopped reaching out to him, too. That’s gotta sting. Yeah, I don’t — I don’t want to hurt drew, but, look, protecting you, willow, was my number-one priority, and nobody can know that that we were involved with hiding jason. Oh, I-I know. I know you’re right. I… I just can’t help wondering how drew is dealing with all this. I know, because, willow, you have a big heart, and you care about people. But, look, try not to worry because, trust me, drew can take care of himself. Was there something else you wanted? Carly ever tell you you have a nice body? You’ve only seen half of it. You boys, you’re all the same. You act so brave when you’re on your barstools and you’re on your picnic benches or behind your desks.

[ Scoffs ] But what do you do when a girl takes you up on it? Or when she does something like this? You cower?

[ Laughing ] You’re such a boy scout. A man let’s a lady say no. Did I say no?

[ Door opens ] What’s up, sonny? Damn it. Jason… I don’t want you here. I want you gone.
