Esther: Hi there, what can I get you?

Claire: Um, I’m actually not sure. What would you recommend?

Esther: Well, the double mocha latte is very popular and so is the butter pecan swirl. Oh, and the caramel macchiato. And you give it some zhuzh, extra whipped cream, rainbow sprinkles, and you’re good to go.

Claire: Rainbow sprinkles?

Esther: Yeah, you only live once, right?

Kyle: Hey, esther. I’ll have what she’s having.

Summer: Mom?

Phyllis: Hey! Oh, hey, did you get harrison to his lunch and safe?

Summer: Yeah, we did. He actually literally nodded off over his grilled cheese. I mean, he’s so exhausted since the kidnapping. I feel like it’s going to be a while before he’s back to 100%.

Phyllis: Yeah, but at least he knows we all love him very much and we want to make him feel safe.

Summer: You were great, by the way, in the park earlier. How you showed claire that there are boundaries when it comes to harrison.

Phyllis: Oh, well, I definitely saw what you were talking about. And harrison seems to be, like, a little obsessed with her. She’s not doing anything to deter that, which bothers me.

Phyllis: And even though she knows how you feel about her, she practically invited herself to lunch.

Summer: Hey, thank you. And kyle is doing nothing to shut it down.

Phyllis: Oh, trust me, I saw that too, okay? Now, diane’s not going to be help.

Summer: Why do you say that?

Phyllis: Because I ran into her and I thought that maybe she’d want to do something to protect her grandson. But she wasn’t interested.

Summer: I just hope that claire has finally gotten the hint and will actually keep her distance.

Cole: Hey. I was hoping you were victor.

Nick: Sorry to disappoint. I thought he might be home.

Cole: Ah, well, apparently that’s the case, but no one is exactly sure where he is.

Jordan: Oh. Victor. Victor. Victor. Victor… get me out of here, okay? Please? Time to let me go.

Victor: You’re in no position to make demands.

Jordan: You said you had a plan. So, what is it? I’ll do whatever you want. What do you want? Do you want mayhem? Chaos? Blood? I’m a woman. Nobody does it better. So, just tell me what you want.

If you have wet amd,

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… the best moments deserve the best eggs.

Esther: Two drip coffees, no whipped cream, no foam, no chocolate sprinkles and no… fun.

[ Kyle and claire chuckle ]

Claire: I promise you, I will order something extra decadent next time.

Esther: Okay. I’ll hold you to that.

Claire: Thank you. So much for living large. You could have ordered something a little bit more interesting, though.

Kyle: This is exactly what I needed. You care to join me?

Claire: I don’t know.

Kyle: Well, if you’re worried about summer showing up, we could sit at two different tables and just sort of yell a conversation back and forth. Sound good?

Claire: It sounds loud.

Kyle: Yeah, one table it is then, if you have time.

Claire: I do. But do you? I mean, shouldn’t you be at the office?

Kyle: Oh, I get plenty of work done without the distraction of office drama.

Claire: Mm, what kind of office drama, if you don’t mind me asking?

Kyle: Nothing that won’t be solved sooner rather than later.

Summer: So, you don’t think I’m overreacting about claire?

Phyllis: Absolutely not. Listen, I had a refresher course in a life lesson. I’ve learned this lesson millions of times. When am I gonna finally get it? But people cannot be trusted to do the right thing. You have to watch out for yourself.

Summer: Exactly. That’s all I’m trying to do, and I’m trying to watch out for harrison, too.

Phyllis: I know you are. I’m really proud of you. Hey, I am glad that one of my kids is taking my advice.

Summer: Wait, was that a dig at daniel? Did something happen between you guys?

Phyllis: No, nothing happened. It’s just, you know, he didn’t show a lot of sympathy toward me when I told him that danny broke my heart and rode off into the rock and roll sunset. That’s all.

Summer: So, it’s about you and danny?

Phyllis: No. No, it’s about daniel. He was really off. He was kind of unhinged. I’ve seen it before. I’m just worried about him, to be honest.

Summer: Well, lily just fired him and– and basically stole omegasphere and now he’s in the middle of this huge lawsuit. Of course, he’s feeling down.

Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah, that makes sense. He’s not the only one who’s down. I’m out of work, too.

Summer: Wait, they fired you too?

Summer: Didn’t fire me. I quit.

Summer: Mom, you quit your job for daniel?

Phyllis: Yes, of course I did. I told you, I will always have my kids’ backs.

Summer: Why did you do that? What are you going to do now?

Phyllis: I’m going to order champagne.

Nick: I’ve looked everywhere. I can’t find him. Ranch security and the staff are pretty convinced he didn’t leave the property.

Cole: Well, the same thing happened when victoria and i came by. We were told that he was here and he wasn’T. And then when he finally showed up, he said he had gone down to the stables.

Nick: You don’t believe him?

Cole: You know, nicholas, I don’t think it’s my place to say.

Nick: Cole, you’re pretty close to family at this point. If there’s something bothering you, just say it.

Cole: Do you think it’s possible that victor’s keeping a secret?

Nick: Absolutely.

Victor: You know, it’s a beautiful day today. Spring day. Fresh breeze. I love to breathe in the air.

Jordan: Stop torturing me.

Victor: I’m just discussing the weather, that’s all.

Jordan: You said you had a plan.

[ Victor chuckles ]

Victor: I said we might have a plan.

Jordan: Then, let’s get it going. Unleash me. Tell me what you want and I’ll do it. And then I’ll go to prison for all eternity. As we agreed.

Victor: We have agreed to nothing.

Jordan: So, what do you want? What do you want? You want me down on my knees? Okay. Okay, okay. I’m on my knees. I’m on my knees. Humble. Humiliated. What do you want? You want me groveling at your feet? Done.

Victor: You tried to kill me. You tried to kill my family. Now, get up. Get up!

Jordan: I’m just– I’m just trying to tell you that–

Victor: Huh?

Jordan: I’m just trying to tell you that I’m ready to do whatever you want. So, what do you want? Because I’M… I’m a woman. I can do it better than anyone. I’m the bullet in your chamber. Pull the trigger.

Victor: Good talk! I love that. The bullet in my chamber. You’re full of it. You’re a pathetic creature. Can’t do nothing but harm to people, destroy people! Let me remind you. You ain’t in control. I’m adding downy unstopables to my wash.

Cole: So, you agree. Victor’s sitting on some kind of secret.

Nick: Cole, I think my dad’s got a secret like 99% of the time. Now, I don’t have anything specific at the moment, but I’m guessing you do.

Cole: It’s more of a feeling that I get from victor. On a couple of fronts.

Nick: A feeling?

Cole: Something that victor said to victoria and me. I mean, she’s afraid that he’s planning something against jack because of what happened to nikki.

Nick: No details?

Cole: Just that he wants all of the newmans to stay away from the abbotts, jack in particular.

Nick: Well, I mean, no surprise there. Dad hates the guy, especially right now. Um, what is the other front that’s worrying you?

Cole: Nick, I just, I don’t want to upset victoria unnecessarily, you know, because of everything that she’s gone through.

Nick: Yeah, I get it, but you can certainly tell me.

Cole: That’s why I’m coming to you. It’s jordan.

Nick: Jordan’s dead, cole.

Cole: That’s the thing. I think that there’s something off about victor’s claim that she died in that chase. Something doesn’t quite fit.

Nick: Okay, well, as long as she’s gone and no longer a threat, what does it matter?

Cole: Well, until her body is found, I feel like I need to protect victoria and claire. And I even expressed my concerns to victor.

Nick: What’d dad say to that?

Cole: He was very confident that jordan was out of our lives for good. He insisted that we’re safe and there’s nothing to worry about. But, nick, he wasn’t even bothered by the fact that her body hasn’t been found.

Nick: Well, there’s your answer right there.

Cole: Then, why am I even more concerned?

Jordan: Look at you. So smug. Doesn’t the master of the universe want to show off what he’s accomplished? Nikki would love this.

Victor: Don’t you mention her name again, okay?

Jordan: Nikki would let me out. Nikki saved my life. She could have stood there and watched me die.

Victor: Nikki is compassionate.

Jordan: Nikki is weak. She couldn’t finish the job.

Victor: But i am not compassionate.

Jordan: Well, you can’t keep me in here forever.

Victor: Why not?

Jordan: Well, because people will wonder. Wonder where I am.

Victor: Why the hell should they wonder where you are? You’re dead, as far as they’re concerned.

Jordan: I am very much alive. What did you do?

Victor: When you were going to meet nikki in the alley to make a deal, I had my security team follow you. You got scared. You ran away in a panic. You ran across the galewood river bridge. You slipped. You plunged into the cold water 100 feet below. Dark, cold water. Ooh. By now, they’ll think you’re in lake michigan.

Jordan: You bastard. None of the good stuff for me? Nikki drink it all?

[ Jordan grunts ]

Victor: For the last time, don’t ever mention nikki again.

Jordan: Oh! I’m sorry. I’m sorry, victor! Come back! Victor! Victor! Victor! I’m– I’m sorry.

Claire: Your mom was married to my grandfather.

Kyle: And my dad was married to your grandmother.

[ Both chuckle ]

Claire: You have seen a lot of marriages.

Kyle: And divorces and affairs.

Claire: Your parents seem happy.

Kyle: Yeah, they are. But it took them a while to get there.

Claire: It’s good that you know what love looks like, though. That’s why this living at the ranch with my mom has been so wonderful. I finally get to see real love close up. And it’s even better than in every book I’ve ever read.

Kyle: You were a little bookworm.

Claire: Still am. And, yeah, I just, I craved that kind of love all my life. Who knew the real thing would be even better? Parents. A family that’s kind and accepts you, even though there’s a lot to forgive. And nikki and victor. I mean, after all these years, everything they’ve been through, good and bad, they still find a way to look at each other like they’re the only two people in the room.

Kyle: Goals, right?

Claire: Yeah.

Kyle: Yeah. In the meantime, I’m busy focusing on harrison and jabot.

Claire: And I am just as focused on getting a job. As generous as my family has been, there’s no way that I’m going to live off of them.

Kyle: Yeah. Look, I can’t tell you how sorry I am that that job isn’t with harrison.

Phyllis: Here we go.

Summer: Mom, quitting a perfectly good job? It’s a little extreme, even for you. I mean, I know you like to go big, but even for you.

Phyllis: I don’t know. Devon was talking about me breaking my confidentiality agreement or something.

Summer: Wait, I thought that you said that you quit in solidarity with daniel.

Phyllis: Yes, yeah, he was probably going to fire me anyway.

Summer: Mom.

Phyllis: I wasn’t going to give him the satisfaction. Come on, toast to me for standing up for myself and all that blah, blah, blah stuff. You’re not very enthusiastic.

Summer: You’re unemployed, so.

Phyllis: You know that lily and devon were going to axe me anyway. They got rid of daniel without just cause. They weren’t going to keep me around. It is so unfair. Your brother gave his heart and soul to that company, and for them to throw him out like a piece of garbage? I think someone should make them pay. Depression is a journey.

Summer: Okay, but you don’t mean you, right? You’re not going to be making lily and devon pay. You’re talking about hypothetically, karmically, if the world were fair. You’re not actually going to be plotting revenge against chancellor-winters, right?

Phyllis: Uh, well, we both agreed that we should take care of ourselves, right? I vote for justice.

Summer: Yes, and that will happen. There is a system in place. Just trust that.

Phyllis: Oh, okay. I’ll trust the system. Sure. Listen, lily fired your brother because she got her feelings hurt and that’s the only reason that happened. He gave everything to that company and what’s she doing? She’s keeping his games, she broke his heart and, um, she’s going to make millions off of my son’s brilliance. That is wrong. It’s so wrong. I can’t ignore it.

Summer: Okay, but what about you trying to be a better person? You’ve been doing so well, mom. Why ruin a good streak?

Phyllis: Summer! I am being a good person. I’m protecting my son and I’m fighting for my son. How far would you go for harrison?

Summer: Harrison is a kid. Daniel can take care of himself.

[ Phone pinging ] Oh, my gosh. Uh, I gotta go. I gotta check in on harrison. Mom… please do not burn chancellor-winters to the ground.

[ Phyllis chuckles ]

Phyllis: No. Well, my password still works. If that’s not a sign, I don’t know what is.

Nick: I’m not sure where you’re going with this, cole. Are you suggesting my father had something to do with jordan’s death?

Cole: Jordan has gotten away from the authorities, from victor, too many times. If she actually did fall into this river, I would think that victor would have his men dredging it 24/7 until they found her body, that he would want solid proof with no doubt that jordan is out of our lives for good. But instead, he’s not even concerned that we don’t have any evidence of her death.

Nick: There were several witnesses who claimed to see jordan fall into the river.

Cole: All on victor’s security team.

Nick: Okay, cole, um… I hear you. After everything this family has been through, I really think you should let this one go.

Cole: Understood. But if there’s even the slightest chance that jordan is still alive, there’s no way I’m letting my guard down until we have all the answers.

Victor: Gentlemen.

Nick: Dad?

Cole: Hey. We were just wondering where you were.

Victor: I just went a few rounds with the old bag.

Nick: That a boy.

Victor: You know. Did you come here for the sifton contract, son?

Nick: Yeah. You done with them?

Victor: I signed it all, and thank you for taking care of that.

Nick: No problem.

Victor: Yep.

Nick: Have you heard from mom?

Victor: Yeah. She’s getting stronger.

Nick: Good. I can’t wait till she gets home.

Victor: Well, join the club, son.

Nick: Yeah, I gotta jump on this. Thank you.

Victor: Thank you for doing it. Yep.

Cole: Thank you, nick.

Victor: So, cole, what can I do for you?

Summer: You had another bad dream? Tell me about it.

Harrison: The witch. She wanted to get me again. I’m scared, mommy.

Summer: Oh, sweetie. Everything is okay. You’re okay.

[ Summer sighs ] Hey, why don’t I text your dad, get him to come home? Maybe a little bit of family time will help you feel better. Yeah? Okay.

Claire: Do not apologize. It’s not up to you or your family to employ me. I will figure it out.

Kyle: Oh, I have no doubt you will. I wish summer liked the idea. I mean, harrison likes you. He trusts you. You both went through a terrifying ordeal and came out the other side. He needs someone like that, someone who knows what he went through, he can relate with. Shouldn’t that be the priority? Not summer’s irrational worries, what’s best for harrison?

Claire: I– I appreciate your belief in me. But… maybe you could go easy on summer.

Kyle: Really?

Claire: Since the kidnapping, sometimes… I can hear my mom open my door when she thinks I’m sleeping, and she just… watches me for a few minutes. Make sure I’m there, I’m safe. Harrison’s a little boy. I can’t imagine what summer went through when he was missing, how terrified she must have been. So, I’m a reminder of that, along with my past. If summer doesn’t want me around… I have to understand that. And I hope you can too.

[ Phone pings ]

Kyle: Um, I have to go, but I hope we can talk again soon.

Claire: I’d like that. Give harrison my love.

Kyle: I will. I would’ve called yesterday.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Kyle: Oh! Oh! Hey, buddy. Heard you had a bad dream.

Harrison: Very bad.

Kyle: You wanna talk about it?

Harrison: The witch wanted to take me away.

Summer: You know that she can’t do that, right? Your big, strong dad is not gonna let her or anyone else hurt you ever again.

Kyle: Mom’s right. You’re safe here.

Harrison: But what about claire?

Summer: What about her?

Harrison: She might have the same bad dreams.

Kyle: Why would you say that?

Harrison: The witch took her away and left her someplace dark and scary.

Claire: Did claire tell you that?

Harrison: The witch told me. She said if I wasn’t good, she’d take me to a scary place.

Kyle: You know that’s not gonna happen, right, buddy? No one will ever get to you again. Your mom and I will make sure of that.

Summer: This right here is the safest place in the world. Got that?

Harrison: Can claire come over so she can feel safe too?

Cole: So, I was thinking about giving claire some riding lessons.

Victor: Oh.

Cole: It’s been a while since I’ve been the ranch hand around here.

Victor: Yeah.

Cole: I was hoping maybe you could steer me in the direction for the right horse for her.

Victor: That’s a wonderful idea. I’d love to help. There’s our girl.

Cole: Hey. How was crimson lights?

Claire: How weird is it that getting a coffee is still an adventure?

Cole: It’s not weird at all. But speaking of such, I have another idea for an adventure.

Claire: Yeah?

Cole: I was thinking about giving you riding lessons. I mean, if you’re interested.

Claire: Yeah, that would be amazing.

Cole: Yeah? All right.

Victor: I got the right horse for you. Midnight blue. Steady horse, strong stride. You’ll fall in love with him.

Claire: I don’t know what any of that means. I love him already. But what if I’m not any good?

Victor: Don’t you worry about a thing, okay? Riding is in the newman blood. It’s in your genes. Both victoria and nikki are wonderful riders. And you’ll follow in their footsteps.

Claire: I hope so.

Victor: I know so. So, why don’t you, both of you, join us for dinner? Victoria will come over soon. All right?

Cole: Hey, well, that sounds good.

Victor: You better bring a good appetite, because the cook is preparing a prime roast with brussels sprouts.

Claire: I’ve never had brussels sprouts.

Cole: Really?

Claire: Yeah.

Cole: Never?

Claire: No, no. Jordan despised them with a passion. So, the smell of them would make her retch. I’ve never had them.

Victor: Oh, yeah?

[ Chuckles ] Well, that’s interesting. Anyway, why don’t you two go down to the stables, meet midnight blue, all right? And the other horses.

Cole: You’re more than welcome to join us.

Victor: Well, I appreciate the invitation, but I have something I must attend to first.

Nick: Hey.

Phyllis: Hey. Hi.

Nick: Hi. What are you doing?

Phyllis: Nothing.

Nick: Yeah, that’s what it looked like.

Phyllis: No, really, I’m doing nothing.

Nick: Yeah, I saw the chancellor-winters logo before you nearly broke your computer slamming it shut. It is not a secret that you work there.

Phyllis: I don’t work there anymore.

Nick: Oh. They fired you?

Phyllis: I quit. Why does everybody think they fired me? Although, they would have fired me or anybody else who’s connected to daniel. Lily and devon are going all scorched earth.

Nick: So they fired you.

Phyllis: I quit.

Nick: But you logged on, and you don’t want anyone to see that, so I can’t shake the feeling that you’re about to scorch your own earth.

Phyllis: I’m just looking for justice for my son.

Nick: What kind of justice?

Phyllis: A virus or two, maybe. Some not-so-flattering comments left on the chancellor-winters site, or maybe diverting some omegasphere players to another game.

Nick: You cannot be serious.

Phyllis: I’m not serious. Of course– of course I’m not. Nothing has been done yet.

Nick: All right. Well, what are we waiting for? I’m in. Let’s do this. I told myself I was ok

Summer: Well, mrs. Martinez’s cookies saved the day again. Harrison had one in each hand.

Kyle: That’s my boy.

Summer: If only they could take away his bad dreams.

Kyle: Hmm.

Summer: Kyle, what are we gonna do?

Kyle: For starters, I think we should bring on claire as a trial run for harrison’s nanny.

Summer: Are you joking me right now? Our son is having nightmares and you wanna talk about claire? Can we please just focus on harrison for now and we can discuss claire later? Or you know what? Better yet, just let her own family deal with her, okay?

Kyle: Summer, you saw harrison and claire at the park. The trauma they went through has bonded them. He feels as safe with her as he does with us. Isn’t that important?

Summer: Of course it’s important.

Kyle: Okay, then what’s– what’s your idea? Given what the boy’s been through, do you–

Summer: Can you…

Kyle: Do you really think it’s a good idea to introduce him to a stranger and ask him to trust her? How do you think that will go over? And you know how picky he is with who he likes, and now his trust issues are on a whole other level.

Summer: Okay, you do not need to explain our son’s issues to me.

Kyle: Then you see the wisdom in my suggestion. Claire isn’t a threat. She’s a solution. And maybe, maybe if you stop fighting it, we can hurry up and help our son.

Summer: Wow, so I’m the bad guy in this?

Kyle: No. No. No, no one is the bad guy in this, and I’m sorry if I’ve made you feel that way. I just see our son upset and I wanna fix it.

Summer: Well, so do I.

Kyle: I know you do. And claire has made it clear that she understands how protective you are and she respects what a good mom you are.

Summer: When was– when are you two having all of these conversations?

Kyle: Summer, the point is, claire isn’t chasing the job because she puts harrison’s bond with you, his mother, first. Isn’t that what we want in a nanny?

Phyllis: I know what you’re doing. It’s reverse psychology. It’s not gonna work on me.

Nick: No. No, I am down. I cannot wait to hear about all your deepest, darkest revenge fantasies.

Phyllis: Well, what I was thinking of doing, since you’re interested, is just creating enough havoc so that lily and devon regret firing my son.

Nick: And you, of course.

Phyllis: Of course. But mainly daniel. And they beg him to come back, and they give him a huge raise, along with me, and fancier title.

Nick: Hmm. Well, I mean, it sounds great. Uh, I’m just wondering if you have considered what the fallout may be. Like, what happens when chancellor-winter’s cybersecurity team traces the virus back to you?

Phyllis: Please. Please. Ugh. I’m not an amateur. I cover my tracks.

Nick: Okay, so a virus just happens to show up in their system shortly after one of their top programmers gets fired.

Phyllis: Their top programmers? I was their top programmer. And they’re gonna find out the hard way.

Nick: Well, I’m just saying it’s gonna be very difficult to take that victory lap when they confiscate your laptop. Then they’re gonna haul daniel’s butt in for questioning, and then our daughter’s gonna have to deal with the fact that her mother is on the most wanted list yet again.

Phyllis: Ugh. Okay. Ugh. How do you do that? I mean, how– how do you make me realize that what I’m doing is wrong? Okay, I’m not– I’m not– I’m not gonna do this. I won’t plant a virus.

Nick: You’re angry.

Phyllis: Yeah. Okay. So…

[ Sighs ] I won’t plant this virus. I won’t do anything like that. So, now what? Now what do I do?

Nick: Well, I’m not gonna solve all your problems for you. What would be the fun in that?

Phyllis: Do you know anybody who, you know, wants a professional pot stirrer? Because I think I’d be really great at that.

Nick: I think you should aim higher than that. Great color on you, by the way.

Phyllis: Thank you. It’s electric.

Hey! Asthma’s

got you going through it?

Summer: You say that it’s all about harrison, and then you make it all about claire. Look, I wish her the best. I really do. But the fact is, she has had serious issues, and I find it hard to believe that, poof, all of a sudden, she’s totally sane, all better, and we should trust her with our child.

Kyle: Summer, claire has been through hell. And she somehow still has so much kindness in her and she’s finding her way in this.

Summer: You know what? If you wanna help claire, you go do that. That’s great. Take on your charity project. Just leave our son out of it. Why are you so invested in helping claire, by the way?

Kyle: Again, this isn’t about claire. My goal is to help harrison. Have you ever seen him so open and relaxed with someone he just met?

Summer: Kyle, we will find another someone. Hey, buddy. Oh. Whoa. Is that cookie number three? Okay, now that your belly’s full, do you wanna go outside and play, or do you wanna read a story?

Harrison: Can you call claire to make sure she’s okay?

Kyle: We can do better than that. How would you like claire to be your new nanny?

Harrison: Yay!

Cole: Victor, listen, I just wanted to check that… victor? Victor, you here?

[ Loud clanging ]

[ Jordan gasps ]

Jordan: Oh!

Victor: Want some food?

Jordan: No. Whatever– whatever that is, take that away. Take it away.

Victor: Oh, you complained about the menu before. So I brought you some wonderful food. Full of fiber. Makes you strong. Brussels sprouts.

Jordan: Oh, god. Oh, god. I can’t breathe. Just bring me something else. Anything. Anything.

Victor: Beautiful. Mmm. Mmm. I love it. Mmm. Mmm. Bon appétit.

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Ashley: This place isn’t open for hours, so we have all the privacy in the world.

Ash: Oh, no! Are you gonna kill tucker right now?

Cole: I think you’re hiding something. I don’t know what it is or why you’re doing it, but every time I talk with you lately, I don’t feel like I’m getting the whole truth.

Nikki: Victor? Are you home? Victor?
