Interview with Patton Oswalt

TV Interview!


Patton Oswalt, host of "The 1% Club" on Amazon Prime Video and FOX

Interview with Patton Oswalt, host of “The 1% Club” on Amazon Prime Video and FOX by Suzanne 4/30/24

This was a wonderful interview! I’ve enjoyed Patton’s work ever since I saw him in “Justified” (one of the best shows on TV), where he played Constable Bob. He’s done so many wonderful shows and movies, as well as his great standup act.   I don’t watch many game shows, but this new one is smart and funny. It’s very challenging. If you love “Jeopardy,” you should love this one, too. It airs tomorrow, May 23, on Prime Video, and then airs again on FOX, starting Monday, June 3.

They only gave me 6 minutes with him, so I was talking pretty fast. I hope you can understand me! Also, this was supposed to have me in the video as well, but the people in charge of recording it didn’t record the gallery view, for some reason. Oh, well!   If they send me a better version, I’ll put it up.

‘The 1% Club’, where the questions have nothing to do with remembering little known facts, endless reams of dates or obscure quiz trivia, as instead they are all about applying logic, reasoning skills and common sense. The show begins with 100 contestants, who are then whittled down as they compete to make it to the end and answer a question only 1% of the country can get right, in hopes of winning up to 100,000 dollars.


Patton Oswalt, host of "The 1% Club" on Amazon Prime Video and FOXPatton Oswalt continues to leave his distinctive imprint across all areas of entertainment, from his award-winning comedy specials to his many guest roles on television. His most recent comedy special We All Scream (which also marked his directorial debut) launched on Netflix in late 2022 and Oswalt was nominated for a Grammy for his comedy album. Last year, he also starred in the Magnolia Pictures comedy I Love My Dad, winner of the Grand Jury and Audience awards at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival.  
Oswalt was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for his performance in Jason Reitman’s film Young Adult, starring opposite Charlize Theron. In 2009, he also received critical acclaim for his performance in Robert Siegel’s Big Fan; the film was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award and Oswalt earned a Gotham Award nomination for his performance. 
Oswalt has appeared in many films, including The Circle, alongside Tom Hanks, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Zoolander, both directed by Ben Stiller, Steven Soderbergh’s The Informant with Matt Damon, and alongside Seth Rogen in Jody Hill’s Observe and Report, as well as Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia and Todd Phillips’ Starsky and Hutch.
Oswalt’s past television work includes memorable roles on Parks and Recreation, which brought him a TV Critics Choice Award, A.P. Bio, Veep, United States of Tara, Seinfeld (his TV acting debut), and many more. He is also very well known for playing ‘Spence’ on The King of Queens for nine seasons.  Oswalt is also the narrator on ABC’s hit comedy The Goldbergs.  He provided the voice for ‘Remy’ the rat in Pixar’s Oscar¼ winner Ratatouille, and his other voice credits include ‘Max’ in The Secret Life of Pets 2, Sorry To Bother You, the SYFY series Happy!, Rick and Morty, Archer, and BoJack Horseman. 
In 2020, Oswalt’s Emmy nominated Netflix special I Love Everything was widely applauded upon release, and he received a Grammy nomination for his comedy album of the same name. In 2017, he received Grammy and Emmy nominations for his album and Netflix special Annihilation, which addresses his own devastating loss and dealing with the unexplainable, while making it all painfully funny.  In 2016, he won the Emmy for ‘Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special’ for his sixth comedy special Talking for Clapping and a Grammy Award in 2017 for his comedy album. He has been nominated for a total of six Grammys and four Emmys.  Oswalt has shot eight TV specials and released seven critically acclaimed albums — in 2009, Patton received his first Grammy nomination for his album My Weakness Is Strong.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

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?

excuse me.I’ve got some rounds to make. Wait, wait, wait. Aww![ Chuckles ] Lucky man, my friend. I sure am. Sam, I was going to ask you. How’s the pi business? Any interesting new cases? Same old, same old. Hey, jason. Hey. Hey. I’m so glad monica got you to come. Yeah. I know she wanted to come herself. And I know she would wantme to tell you congratulations. Thank you. Good to see you. Sonny, we don’t see enough of you. You don’t come around the neighborhood as much as you should. Carmine: Gloria’s right. Now, listen — we’re having a big 4th of july party, just like every year. I want to see you there this year. Alright, I’ll try. No, no trying. Commit! Uncle dimples! I’m so glad you came. I would not miss it for the world. Aww. Okay. Say “formaggio!” Okay, no, that’s okay. We’re — yeah, we’re not — well, you’re not the mother of the bride. I am, and I’m walking around taking pictures of everyone. So pick your favorite cheese and say “formaggio!” Formaggio! Formaggio! Formaggio. Great. Oh, you’re beautiful. Our great grandkids love your music. Oh, thank you. Don’t be embarrassed. Tell her. Tell me what? She loves it, too. Kids start dancing, she’s right there with them. I’m afraid she’s gonna break something.

[ Laughter ] I’m gonna break you.

[ Laughter ] So, blaze, are you gonna perform today? For our brook lynn? Yeah, who we love so much. Oh, blaze is a guest. Yeah, I know she’s a guest, but she’s here and she’s got that amazing voice. Oh, well, um, I… well, actually, she really wanted to perform, but when you think about it, if brook lynn had her most important client perform at her wedding… exploitation. Yeah. See? You got it. Exactly. And that’s not a good look, not at all.

[ Light laughter ] What did you think of my song? Oh, we loved your song. And you wrote that all by yourself? Yes, I did. Jason, it is so good to see you! At this wedding, obviously, but also just in general, spinelli really missed you. And so did I. It’s always good to see you. Are you free to enjoy yourself, or do you still have responsibilities? Uh, no, this is olivia’s show now. My responsibilities ended at the church. Can I commend you on the music? That violinist was superlative. I thought so, too, but I can’t take any credit for that. He’s a cousin of the cerullos or something? Usually, when a family says they have someone they want to play the ceremony, it can be a total mess, but I think he was really good. Oh, gio, your performance was perfection. You could not have given brook lynn a greater gift. I’m glad that she liked it, but, I mean, brook lynn was a little busy. I doubt she even noticed. Are you kidding me? Everyone noticed your talent. Oh, honey. Oh, the family is so proud of you! Oh! Mm! Violet: Daddy. Huh? I need to ask you a question, and you need to be honest with me. Okay. Ask away. What did you think about my song? Honestly? I thought you were amazing. Mm.

[ Breathes deeply ] Violet, it’s almost dinnertime. Why don’t you go find our place cards in the ballroom?

[ Gasps ]

[ Chuckles ]

[ Soft piano music playing ] You seem upset. Did something happen?

[ Knock on wall ] Well, what’s this? It’s samples. I just finished up wrapping up all the after-party prep. Hmm. Catering for two families. What were you thinking, volunteering for such a mission?

[ Sighs ] I honestly feel so bad that I couldn’t make it to the wedding. I-I wanted to go. I was planning on going. But I had no idea how much lois and olivia were expecting from me for this after party. They gave me this long list of food to prepare and, being so new at the job, I couldn’t say no. I get it. Well, yuri and leo are splitting some takeout and playing video games. Monica wanted a light dinner. And being as everyone else is still at the reception, it seems that you and i have the quartermaine manse all to ourselves. Mm.

[ Soft piano music playing ] Sorry. I didn’t mean to strand you.

[ Laughs ] Not at all. Not at all. Actually, it’s been really nice getting to see you hang out with your really loving family and friends. Oh. Oh, my god. For the love of god. I know it’s a party, but you’re causing a scene. Can you just rein it in? Everything okay? Why wouldn’t it be? I don’t know. Three names — cates, brennan, pikeman. Why don’t you just forget about all that for the evening, yeah? I will if you will. Try killing bugs the worry-free way.Not the other way. Zevo traps use light to attract and trap flying insects with no odor and no mess. They work continuously, so you don’t have to. Zevo. People-friendly. Bug-deadly. Gio! Mwah! Mwah! Thank you so much for playing! Didn’t I tell you he was brilliant? You did, and you did not exaggerate.

[ Laughter ] I know it’s not in your nature, but it wouldn’t kill you to mingle. You’re right. Yeah. It’s not in my nature. Oh. [ Laughs ] I see. It’s not like I’m asking you to just go up to total strangers and start discussing the trends in — I don’t know — coffee, fashion… gadgetry. But there’s a lot of people here who’ve really missed you. Dante: Look, no matter what my cousins say or do, we are not going to this after party, okay? They’re going to try and get to me through you. They’re going to get you to go and then drag me along, and we — we got to present a united front, okay? This is new for you. What is? Cowardice. Wow. Too slow. What do you mean? I saw it, man. Pretty little homemade shank. Well, I’m not saying that I — I have such an item, but if I did, what could I offer you to pretend you never saw it? How about I just take the item? You wouldn’t want the guards finding something like that on you. Uh…no deal. You see, I made it. Make a new one. Ugh!

[ Laughs ] I know jack about wine, but judging from this year, I’m guessing these grapes were not growing in napa last summer? They were not. Mm-hmm. And you didn’t get this bottle from a local wine and spirit outlet. Ned uncorked it last night and only had one glass. Okay, I’ve been — I’m wondering, are the q’s gonna be okay with us absconding with this bottle? We didn’t abscond with anything.

I did. A chef. Even so. Cody, please. I have had their wine before, and it never bothered them. So, why would it now? Maybe because this bottle is expensive, even for them. It probably was before it was corked, but you can be sure of one thing — that wine is good tonight and it definitely won’t be tomorrow. Well, then, as a budding wine connoisseur, I cannot in good conscience allow today’s good wine go to waste tomorrow.

[ Sniffs ] How are you and brook lynn related again? Oh, we’re cousins, once removed. Wait. Or is it twice? I always get that part confused. Anyways, he’s a cerullo on his mom’s side. He gets his musical talent from his mom. Ah. So, your dad’s not musical? Uh, I-I don’t really know. He — he was in the military. Died before I was born. I am so sorry. No, no, no. It’s fine. I’m very proud of him. As you should be. You know, actually, that guy in the blue suit there — he served in afghanistan. He’s now at the police academy. Does he like it? You got to ask him. Oh, no, no, no, no. Do not try to recruit gio to be a cop. My grandmother would have a heart attack, not to mention the rest of the family. No, no, no, gio is going to be a concert violinist. Isn’t that right? Yeah, that’s the plan.

Close your eyes and see I know it wasn’t easy seeing your dad struggle. But look. He’s fine. Yeah. He seems to have recovered, thanks to tracy. She’s really good with him.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, she is. Who would have thought?

[ Laughs ] Point is, let’s not think about what happened ’cause your dad is having a wonderful time right now. You’re absolutely right. It’s been a while. Yeah, it has. Excuse me. Hey, know what? Um… cadet heller — how’s he doing in the academy? Oh, I’m not allowed to discuss that with you. And you should know better than to ask.

[ Laughs ] Should we go find our seats? What do you think? Yeah, let’s do that. Yeah? Okay.

[ Indistinct conversations ] I’m getting hungry.

I think one of the most important lessons I’ve learned from brook lynn is that just because you can’t stand somebody, for very good reasons, I might add…

[ Laughter ] …Doesn’t mean that your lifelong enemy can’t become one of your very best friends… …a friend that is there for you when you need someone the most. Congratulations, brook lynn. Love you. I love you.

[ Chuckles ] Oh, yeah and chase. Um…

[ Laughter ] You sweet, handsome, honorable man. Just do your best not to arrest her again. Good luck with that.

[ Chuckles ] Congratulations to the happy couple. -Aww! -To the couple! -Cheers! -Happy couple! -Cheers! -Aww. Thank you for being the best wicked stepmother ever. Oh! I do what I can.

[ Laughs ] You done good. You didn’t do too bad yourself. Hi. I’m gio. Dex heller. Uh, chase was telling me that you served in afghanistan. My dad did, too. Oh, yeah? Do you know where? No, no. He was killed in action before I was born, so, uh… no, I don’t have a lot of details about his service. I’m sorry for your loss. Thanks. I didn’t mean to put you on the spot or anything. I-I just… I-I think what you did was very important. Thank you. So do I. Your dad must have gone over there pretty early. Was it 2001, 2002? Uh, it was 2002, yeah. Did you like it? Serving in the military? Yeah, I — I did. You know, it’s hard when you’re deployed. You, um — you spent a lot of time thinking about home. I bet your dad spent a lot of time thinking about your mom and wondering who you would turn out to be. A violinist? I bet he would have really liked that. When you’re surrounded by destruction, you have a lot of respect for the people who create the things that are beautiful, like your music.

[ Indistinct conversations ] Do me a favor. Can you stop gio from talking to that guy right there? Why? He used to work for me, and he’s not trustworthy. Oh, come on. It’s a wedding reception, sonny. They’re probably talking about sports scores or something. I don’t care. I don’t want him talking to him to him. What — listen. Bigger deal you make of this, the bigger of a deal it’s going to be. So just let it go, okay? …Up to her due date, so there was probably never…

[ Soft music playing ]

Speak my name maxie? Yeah? Maximista. Uh-huh.

[ Chuckles ] When’s the last time I told you how beautiful you looked? You mean, like in the last 15 minutes? That’s far too long. It’s unforgivable. Spinelli, hey. Allow me — what? Huh? Got a minute? Uh — sorry.

[ Sighs ] I really wonder how the wedding is going. It’s a wedding. It’s either great or it’s god-awful. There is no in-between. Well, if those are the options, then I think it’s going great. Well, you can wish all you want, but there’s about a billion things that could go wrong. They could forget the rings. Someone could object. There could be food poisoning, runaway bride, runaway groom. Wow. Okay. Well, until I hear otherwise, I choose to believe that this wedding day is everything brook lynn and chase would want. And I can’t wait to see pictures. You want some more? ‘Cause I could use some. Hey. Whoa. What — what is with you? You’re with me. Do you have something against weddings? No, not weddings, per se. I just kind of thought… you know, I hoped it was a clichĂ© that all women dream of a big formal church wedding. Why does it matter? Because even if a guy like me could convince a woman to marry him, I doubt I could afford the big fancy wedding of her dreams.

[ Stammering ] I thought you didn’t want to discuss this tonight. Yeah, well, I changed my mind. Okay, look, samantha, you know, I would love to help you, but I also value my freedom far too much to investigate the fbi. Spinelli. Okay. What is — what’s the goal here, anyway? Besides getting locked up in federal prison? Full disclosure? Yes, by all means. Redact nothing. I’m not sure.

[ Exhales sharply ] Samantha.

[ Sighs ] Okay, a fishing expedition is one thing, but the data stores of federal law enforcement are vast beyond comprehension. How would we even know how to start? I don’t know. Maybe you can help me. All I do know is that jason has been working for the fbi as an informant. I’m sorry. Working for the fbi? Yeah. I know. It sounds crazy, right?

[ Stammers ] Um, but jason actually told me so himself. And the only reason why he would work as an informant would be… if the fbi held damning evidence against him. Yeah. And we have to find it. Well, it is that time, folks, where we welcome our beautiful newlyweds to the dance floor.

[ Cheers and applause ]

[ The como brothers’ “I see something” plays ]

I see something in her smile

it makes me feel as though that I could fly

[ Cheers and applause continue ]

I see something in her smile

it makes me feel as though I’ve

always really known her now

I hear something when she speaks

it’s everything I want and what I need

I feel something when she breathes

it makes me feel as though I

never want to leave her now

and I’ve been searching for something all my life

yeah, I’ve been looking for someone with your eyes


Each of us

has a story

about how we came to where we are

and each of us

has a big dream may I have this dance? Yes, you may. Don’t be jealous. Of what? Think of a reason.

[ Laughter ]

[ Whispering ] I’m gonna go dance with gregory.

There’s a great big world that’s waiting for all of us may I have this dance? Gregory: Um…

there’s a great big road you don’t need that.

And we’re kicking up the dust be my honor.

There’s a great big sky

and we’re shooting for the stars

there’s a fire burning in our hearts ng knowi this is just

this is just the start

I can see

a new life before our eyes

and I can feel a feeling move us

to a new chapter of life he looks like he’s having a good time. He’s surrounded by cerullos. How could he not be?

[ Both laugh ] You know, you’re lucky to have a dad like sonny. But I think you already know that. I do. Although I got to say, if you only knew him back in the day… oh! Do I even want to know? Your dad is a stand-up guy. Always has been. He always will be.

Knowing this is just and you’re certain that this would help jason? Honestly, I don’t know. But I think we have to at least try because jason would do the exact same thing for us. I’m in. Thank you.

[ Up-tempo dance music playing ] Think you can keep up with my sick moves?

Close your eyes I can try.

Let’s live it up

baby, give me your love

this is the night that we’ve been dreaming of

ooh the bride gets to pick who she dances with on her wedding. It would be my honor.

Tonight we’re gonna celebrate and live it up

living for the night may I have this dance? I thought you’d never ask.

[ Laughs ]

Ooh, ooh, ooh

living for the night

ooh, ooh

living for the night, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Okay, first of all, I don’t think that all women dream of getting married in the first place, let alone have a big wedding that takes over a year to plan. And at least a year’s salary to pay for. And traditionally, the groom doesn’t even pay for the wedding. The bride’s family does. Okay. Is that a part of the dowry, or is that in addition to? Since we’re talking tradition. And traditionally, sure, every fairy tale ends with a wedding. Mm, you clearly weren’t raised by germans. The grimm brothers. And popular culture tells little girls that their wedding day is that one day they get to be a princess. But I think that… it’s just one way to celebrate love. If you have a better way, I’m all ears. Well, take me and brando, for example. We got married in a garage. And, yeah, that wasn’t really what we imagined, but we were just so excited to get to the “happily ever after” part. And when that didn’t happen… yeah, I felt cheated. Because a wedding day is just one day of your life. But the marriage, the chance to grow old with your best friend, that lasts a lifetime. Or it’s supposed to, anyway. All the single ladies! Come!

[ Guests murmuring ] Ladies, ladies, keep your head in the game! Alright. They’re ready. Okay. You ready?

[ Gasps ]

[ Cheers and applause ] I caught it! I caught it! Congratulations, violet!

[ Cheers and applause continue ] Not so fast! I want another dance with my beautiful bride. I love you, I want to dance with you, but I’ve got to check the viennese table. Ahh. But do you, really? You’re impossible.

[ Chuckles ] Fine! Hey. Going so soon? Yeah. I’ve got a big day ahead. Can I give you a ride? No. You know, I think I’m gonna stay a little longer. Well, that’s too bad. I’ve been meaning to tell you about my last conversation with mcconkey. Please don’t tell me he wants an entire pier to go with the esplanade? Ah, no, let’s just, uh — let’s just say the congressman has given me a lot to think about. We’ll talk. You tease!

[ Sighs ] Excuse me. Would you like water? Oh, thank you, young man. Of course. With all the excitement and the dancing and everything, my head was beginning to spin a little bit. Um, what’s your name? I’m dex heller. Hi, dex. And how do you know my granddaughter and her new husband? I’m a cadet with the pcpd.

[ Gasps ] You’re a policeman. Oh, your family must be so proud of you. Ooh. We’re so pleased and thrilled to have chase in our family. Well, chase is an exceptional officer. Yes, and of course you know dante. Yes, ma’am. Yes. Well, dante, let me see. He’s got to be three — no. Fifth cop in his generation in the falconeri side of the family. Oh, lois, do you know dex? Mm-hmm. Yes. He saw that I was parched, and he brought a glass of water over to me. That was very thoughtful of you. Thank you, dex. It was no problem. And you know what else? Mm-hmm? Dex is at the police academy. You should introduce him to your cousin lucia. If they were to marry, then there would be four cops on the cerullo side. Ma! Ma! You just met the guy, and you already marry him? I’m so sorry… oh, not at all. …For my mother. Really. Although I will say, you should meet lucia. I mean, she is a beautiful girl. And also very smart. She has a degree in computer science. But no — no pressure, though. Stop. Stop. No pressure at all. Ma.

[ Groaning ] Unh!

[ Groans ] Ugh!

[ Breathing heavily ]

never really ponderedthe whole “ever after” thing. You know? I make sure the horses are healthy. I clean out their stalls. I live day to day. Given where I’m from, the whole long-term thing didn’t really seem like a great option. I get that. When you marry someone you love, thinking “long term” is the default setting. But then when it’s cut short, you realize that making big plans and relying on them happening — it sets you up for disappointment. Don’t — don’t get me wrong. I mean, you know, hoping for a future with the person you love doesn’t seem like a bad thing. It’s just, in my personal experience, when you don’t plan too far ahead, it leaves you open for surprises. Like parachuting into a swimming pool. Yeah. Or quitting your spokesmodel job because someone calls you too wholesome. Or finding a family, even though you can’t tell them you’re part of it. Or this, you know? Great wine, great food, great company. Hold that thought. I didn’t say anything. No, hold it!

[ Static hissing ]

[ Soft music plays ] May I have this dance? I remember how much trouble you used to be. Well, why I married a cop. Needed an inside man.

[ Laughter ] Oh, that was good thinking. Well, you should try it sometime. Ohh! Just saying. Oof.

[ Laughter ] Well, uh, brook lynn, congratulations. And I know next time my maxie gets drawn into a convoluted deception involving risk, danger, and intrigue, she’ll be in excellent hands. That’s sort of our thing.

[ Laughs ] Believe it or not, I think I’ve said all I have to say. And I heard it. You’re gonna have the best life. Just wish I deserved it. What are you talking about? Of course you deserve it. That’s why it’s yours. We saw you two on the dance floor. Nice moves. Yeah. You know, it’s kind of like dex forgot that josslyn’s my little sister and that I’d do anything to protect her. Okay. That’s enough. Thank you. Oh, dex knows that I’m kidding. Actually, I’m — I’m not kidding.

[ Laughter ] Found someone’s hearing aid. It’s probably carmine’S. I’m gonna go find him then. You’re coming to the after party, dante. I won’t take no for an answer. Aw, geez, patty, I would love to go, but I got kids to tuck in and crime to fight and — that sounds great. I think you should go right ahead. What? Deputy mayor, are you coming? Oh, you know, I can’T. I, um — I got a city to deputy-run. Dante, don’t worry. Spinelli and I can drive you and jordan to the after party. I don’t — I don’t — I don’t want to go. I — yeah, I-I really can’T. Uh, yes, you do. Yeah, you can. Oh! Okay, yeah, yeah. Hey, you know what, patty? We’ll — we’ll meet you there. How’s that? Perfect. Jordan: Yeah. Can’t wait. See you there. See you there. See you there. Bye.

[ Laughter ] Dad! I cannot stop thanking you. I would do it again in a heartbeat. And thank you for… yeah. I certainly hope you regret, um, arresting me. You know, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

[ Laughter ] Good answer. Come on, violet. Let’s go. Let me walk you out. Thank you. For what?

[ Sighs ] Everything. Always. The cerullos are my people. You enjoying yourself with my people? I’m having a good time. A great time, actually.

[ Laughs ] That’s the wrong answer. They’re like family to me. You stay away from my family. I was invited the same as you. You are a snitch! A spy! You’re lucky to be breathing. I’m gonna tell you — you stay away from me and mine. Or you may not be breathing much longer. I’m not your enemy.

This is the best day of my life!

[ Gasps ] Wow.

[ Both groan ] We did it. Yeah. We tied the knot. We crossed the finish line. Ahh. And you are my husband. And you are my wife. Oh, your wife. Now what? Now we have a great wedding night, followed by a great honeymoon in florence. And then we spend the rest of our lives together. How’s that sound? I’m so glad I hit you with that bottle. Wait, I thought that was an accident. Oh, that was no accident. It was luck. Hey, kristina, I seem to have misplaced your father. Oh. Sorry about that. Uh-oh. What’d you do to him? I didn’T. He hasn’t seen his family in a long time. Probably got caught up telling stories from back in the day. Oh. Well, that makes sense. I’m just ready to go up. Do you want to ride up with me? I’m not tired just yet. Okay. Well, will you tell your dad I had a great time, thanks again, and to have a really great evening? Yeah, sure. Okay. Bye. Okay, don’t judge me, but I kind of want to get another piece of cake. Grab two and meet me in my room. Done. Ah!

[ Chuckles ]

I wouldn’t dream

how’d this be without you here I should probably go. The reception should be over. Probably.

If you weren’t the angel… ned and olivia and tracy will be home soon. Can’t keep them waiting. And I’ve got an after party to throw, so… I got to go. Okay. One more song.

If you were here to hold dr. Andy: What have we got? Stab wound to the abdomen. Bp 70 over 40, heart rate 130. He’s lost a lot of blood. Let’s get him to trauma one. Ooh, olivia, olivia — what? What? What’s wrong? Who’s under arrest? We were so close. No, no one’s under arrest. I just wanted to say, it was a great party.

[ Exhales heavily ] Thank god. Always good when a wedding is over and no one is in custody. It is, ye

[ Upbeat music ]

Deacon: Think how great it would be if you were actually in the wedding. You could be sheila’s maid of honor. Finn could be my best man.

[ Phone ringing ]

Hope: Hi, dad.

Deacon: Hey there, daughter. So I was kind of hoping you might have some good news for me.

Hope: Oh?

Deacon: Well, your old man’s getting married soon and, uh, you know, my bride could use a maid of honor and the groom could use a best man. So what do you say? Can you and finn help us out?

Hope: Uh, yeah. I actually hadn’t had a chance to talk to finn yet.

Deacon: Okay. Um, well, what about you, kiddo?

Hope: I– I’m still not sure.

Deacon: All right, look, look, I understand. I mean, whatever you decide, hope, I– I get it. It’s just, I love you so much. It would just mean the world to me if you were there to see sheila and I tie the knot.

Hope: I, uh, dad, I– I actually have to go.

Deacon: Okay. Um, you’ll talk to finn though, right?

Hope: Yep. Yep.

Steffy: Is that your, uh, gullible father calling you to tell you how excited he is that that nine-toed psycho is back?

Finn: Mom. Mom, it’s me.

Sheila: Help me.

[ Knocking ]

Sheila: Will the doctor see me now? Hello, son.

Liam: Another visit so soon. Why do I get the feeling that you’re not here for a slice of my vegan tofu pizza? Come on, out with it.

Liam: I’m– I’m here because your newly resurrected girlfriend remains a threat to steffy and her family, and you and finn, you’re… you’re just not appreciating the gravity of that.

Sheila: I just happened to be at the hospital for a follow-up appointment and good news. My doctor says I am in surprisingly good health given everything I went through with sugar. Uh, he just, he just reconfirmed that right now. I thought, well, since I’m here, I may as well take the opportunity to pop in and see my handsome son. You’re not glad to see me.

Finn: No, look, I– I am glad that you are doing okay. Sheila, I just, I don’t think it’s a good idea for you to be dropping by my office like this.

Sheila: Is that how you truly feel or is that what steffy wants?

Hope: Look, steffy, if you really need to talk, can we schedule a meeting for later because there’s some place I– no, I need a moment with you.

Hope: Okay, did you not just even hear me?

Steffy: Are you not hearing me?

Hope: Right. What– what’s so important?

Steffy: What’s with the attitude?

Hope: Well, I mean, you– you come in here and first thing are criticizing my dad and then you expect me to drop everything for you? Oh, and not to mention thomas and douglas are on the other side of the world, in large part, thanks to you right now. So, if I’m a little bit frustrated with you, I think i have good reason. Don’t you? When my doctor gave me breztri for my copd

Deacon: Why aren’t you getting the fact that people are capable of change?

Liam: I… I do get that people are capable of change, even change for the better.

Deacon: Well, you seem to have a blind spot when it comes to sheila.

Liam: No, my, my blind spot is when it comes to people with long and dangerous patterns of behavior. You’re– you’re– you’re hanging everything on this one fact that sheila told you she did this good thing.

Deacon: And it just doesn’t– that means nothing to you, right?

Liam: What means something to me is steffy and my kid… and their safety.

Deacon: As a father, I get that. I get that, man. Protect your little girl, protect her from bullies, be the best father you can be, but stop using it as an excuse to beat up on sheila every chance you get. I mean, come on, man. She’s gone through hell. You know, she practically lost her life trying to keep… you know, liam, it’s– it’s, man, it’s like I’m talking to a brick wall.

Liam: Yeah, you kind of are. You kind of are talking to a brick wall ’cause I’m never gonna budge on this. I’m never going to be fooled by sheila the way that you and finn have.

Sheila: I can’t believe you want me to stay away, finn. No, not after the beautiful, lovely things you said to me when you found out I was alive. Those– those weren’t just words, son. You meant them. I know you meant them.

Finn: Of course I meant them. By finding you alive after weeks of believing that I’d never see you again, I mean, I was beyond relieved.

Sheila: You were thrilled. You, you were thrilled that we had another chance at a relationship. Clearly, steffy doesn’t feel the same way. I mean, she still holds this suspicion and animosity toward me, and… I know that has to impact you.

Finn: Steffy: Is my wife. She’s the mother of my son. She’s the love of my life, and she’s been through a hell of a lot herself.

Sheila: I– I understand that, but… it has gotta be really difficult for you being torn between your mother and your wife. It’s just… my life is going so well. I– I see a positive, wonderful future ahead of me, finn, and… and it’s a future that I– I truly hope I get to share with you.

Steffy: Are you coming at me now?

Hope: No, but it does feel like you were doing that to me for months.

Steffy: Wait, are you still upset about the whole thomas situation? Like, I thought we moved on from this.

Hope: Oh, really? Because it completely changed my life. You were bad-mouthing me to your brother every chance you got and helped drive him away.

Steffy: Well, I was looking out for my brother. I know the history that he has with you.

Hope: Oh, you mean how he really worked hard on himself and changed for the better? I thought you would be proud of him for that.

Steffy: I am really proud of him. That’s why I stood up for him. I watched what you were doing. Look, hope, the whole situation was really messy, and I was watching you slowly turn into your mom.

Hope: Oh, wow. Doing this again. You’re trying to call me a slut.

Steffy: Well, I mean, you have to admit you are a little unhinged, and I just didn’t want that energy around thomas. I didn’t want you using him.

Hope: I was not using your brother.

Steffy: Yeah, yeah, you were. You had him wrapped around your finger. Look, I don’t know why you did it. I don’t know if it was to get back at me or– or liam.

Hope: Couldn’t be more wrong.

Steffy: Okay, I don’t know if you’re triggered by this. Whatever. Like, I really don’t care. I don’t want to hear the whole victim story because I’m not gonna buy it. I don’t really care. Forward. Over it. Moving on.

Hope: Okay, all right. Obviously, we will never see eye to eye on this, so if i could just make one suggestion, though, maybe focus on your own life, your own husband, you know, given… everything.

Steffy: Given everything? What’s that supposed to mean? ()


Hope: Your husband is going through a lot right now, and quite frankly, I think it is a little insensitive to just discount his complicated feelings for his birth mother.

Steffy: His birth mother? Sheila carter, the woman who shot finn and me and left us both to die in an alley. That sheila carter.

Hope: Yes, we all know who sheila carter is, steffy, and we’re all aware of the horrible things that she has done, especially finn. I’m just saying, I– I think continuing to go down this path of diminishing your husband’s feelings–

Steffy: Just because sheila carter gave birth to finn– you know what? I don’t even know why I have to explain this to you. It should be so obvious.

Hope: Oh, you mean you want me to butt out of something that doesn’t concern me?

[ Steffy scoffs]

Steffy: Yes, I do. But if you want to interfere in my marriage, I’ll tell you this. Finn and I have talked. He knows exactly where I stand. He won’t be seeing sheila ever again.

Finn: I am glad things are going well for you, sheila. I want the best for you.

Sheila: Even though your wife still has this huge sway, I understand. She’s the woman that you married, the mother of your– your son. It’s just, you know, one day I really hope that she will– we– we know what I hope, so I guess in the meantime– well, look, in the meantime, there is something else that you can do. Another step in the right direction. I’m talking about counseling, sheila. And don’t get me wrong, look, I believe that you have changed, but I also think that it would be good to go further, right, with a professional to ensure that you never go back to that woman you were before.

Sheila: No, I’m never going to go back to the woman that I was, sweetheart. I won’t go back to her. I… I have so much to live for. I have a son that I love and admire and respect so very much.

Liam: Hey. Uh, I was actually looking for hope.

Steffy: She left a little while ago. You okay?

Liam: I was just with deacon. Frankly, I can’t even get over the fact that sheila’s still alive.

Deacon: There she is. How’d the follow-up doctors appointment go?

Sheila: It went great.

Deacon: No interactions with the female dr. Finnegan?

Sheila: Oh, stop it. No, no. But you know the best part?

Deacon: Tell me.

Sheila: They gave me an opportunity to visit with my handsome son.

[ Knocking ]

Hope: Hey.

Finn: Hey! Got a minute?

Finn: Um, yeah. For you, always. What’s, um, what brings you by?

Hope: Well, I, uh, come bearing news.

Finn: Okay.

Hope: Your birth mother and my father… they’re engaged.


Deacon: So you checked in with finn while you were at the hospital. Take that. There you go.

Sheila: Thank you, baby.

Deacon: Yeah.

Sheila: Yep. He was working away, but…

Deacon: He made time for his mom.

Sheila: He did. You know, my relationship with finn has changed, and for the better.

Deacon: I think coming back from the great beyond tends to do that. It’ll bring a mother and her son closer together.

Sheila: Yeah, well, I can only imagine how much closer if… steffy weren’t involved.

Deacon: Mm-mm. Does that mean what I think it does?

Sheila: It’s just so clear that she’s gotten into finn’s head again, and– and that is frustrating as all hell. I mean, if you’re, uh… worried about me getting upset and lashing out at steffy, no, I’m not.

Deacon: Good. Because that would completely screw up my master plan.

Sheila: What plan?

Deacon: So, um, I might have spoken to hope and told her that my bride-to-be needs a maid of honor.

Sheila: Oh, shut up.

Deacon: Wait for it. And asked her to convince finn…

Sheila: To be your best man?

Deacon: Bingo.

Steffy: Deacon is a fool for thinking sheila is any different now than she was before sugar showed up. The one thing I know for sure, sheila, dead or alive, doesn’t change anything. Not for finn and me.

Finn: Sheila and deacon are engaged?

Hope: Our parents are going to be husband and wife. So, how do you feel?

[ Finn chuckles ]

Finn: How do I feel? Um… I don’t know. Sheila was just here earlier, and I told her I want her to be happy.

Hope: What, she didn’t mention the engagement at all?

Finn: No. Well, she talked about her future and how… bright it looked.

Hope: Well, I’m guessing she’s referring to the upcoming nuptials.

Finn: Yeah. What about you? How do you feel about our parents being married?

[ Hope chuckles ]

Hope: I mean, honestly, uh… I’m conflicted. I mean, I have my issues and my concerns in regard to sheila. No– no offense.

Finn: Oh, none taken. I– I get why people wish that sheila was out of their lives once and for all.

Hope: But you don’t?

Finn: Well, she’s my birth mother. I mean, there’s obviously the biological connection, and I want her to continue to reform herself, but yeah, I feel, um… yeah, I feel a tie that I’ve never been able to fully explain.

Hope: Well, you don’t have to. At least, not to me, anyway. So, uh, about our folks’ engagement, uh… my dad didn’t just want me to come to the wedding. He also wants me to be your mom’s maid of honor.

Finn: Maid– wow. Wow, talk about being put on the spot. What’d you say?

Hope: I told him that I would think about it, and it’s a lot to consider.

Finn: Yeah, makes sense.

Hope: Yeah, um, and that wasn’t the only thing he asked me about. Uh, look, he was hesitant to even say anything to me about it, but–

Finn: Let me guess. Deacon wants me to come to the wedding, too.

Hope: Oh, it’s not just that. He wanted to know if you would be his best man.

Finn: Be– you– what?

Hope: He would like you to stand up for him so that we can both be there while our parents say I do. So now you have a lot to consider as well.

Finn: Consider? There’s no way steffy would understand, let alone accept this.

Hope: I mean, obviously not. But, I mean, how do you feel about it? I mean, take your wife out of the equation. What would you want? It is your birth mother’s wedding. And my dad did say it would be the biggest gift for both of us to be there for them, to stand up for them.

Finn: Are you thinking about saying yes?

Hope: I don’t know. I don’t know. I just know it would be easier if you were there, too. So is that something that you would even consider? I mean, would you say yes to that? Being at, you know, your mom ,and… my father’s wedding?

Steffy: I laid down the law with finn.

Liam: So it’s either you… or sheila.

Steffy: My husband knows sheila won’t be part of his life.

Announcer: Here’s a look ahead.

Finn: Nothing comes before you, kelly and haynes.

Brooke: You cannot give sheila any of your consideration.

Hope: This isn’t about sheila for me. I’ve already lost enough.

Officiant: Now, let’s get you two hitched.

Oh, my gosh, he is so precious. I swore he’s grown since the last time I saw him. Oh yeah, I know, right? It’s just crazy how much he keeps changing every day. And, uh, is he, is he sleeping through the night? Well, he wakes up one or two times, but you know what, I don’t mind because I kind of Miss it if he doesn’t.

Yeah, I hear that, I hear that. You know, Eric, I just gotta say that, that watching this interaction between your little boy and you, it’s just, it’s so clear that you guys are connected. I mean, just, just so close. Yeah, we are. I couldn’t love this guy more if he were my own flesh and blood. You’re turning into a wonderful father, kid.

It’s because I had two great role models. Actually, three. Mom. Dad, and you.

Oh my goodness, look at that smile.

Eric, he smiles the way you did when you were that age.

Hey, so I was thinking we could go get some tea. Do a mother daughter do over? Go get one of those yummy chai Green tea matcha lattes, whatever they’re called. Mom, I’m sorry. Mom, I have too much studying to do. Studying? Come on, it can wait. This is important. Studying can’t wait. I have a huge test next week.

Ah, operative word. Next week. See, you have time. Come on, let’s go. Do you have any idea how far behind I am? I’m like totally stressed out. Okay, so you’re stressed. Which is why you need to learn how to relax and, and balance your life. And, honey, I, I can always have Marlena write you another note. No! No, I don’t want Marlena to write me another note.

I just want to be a normal kid who does normal things without her mother smothering her and checking in on her every two seconds.

So this isn’t just About you needing to study, is it? You don’t want to spend time with me, is that right?

Hey, Ava. Ah. Hoping I’d run into you. Hey. Yeah, I just finished my shift. I’m heading out. So, oh, I had a video call with Tripp and Wendy yesterday. They’re doing great. I know. I had a call with them earlier today. But that’s not what I wanted to talk to you about. Oh, okay. What is it, then? I just thought I’d clue you in.

I know all about Clyde Weston’s black book. And I also know that Harris shot some pictures of that book to take to his Navy intel buddies to have them decrypt it. So if Harris is involved in this, I’m willing to bet you are too.

Good morning. A busy ride now, Stefan? Okay, look, I know that I must have Overwhelmed you earlier with all this new evidence in Lee Shin’s case. No, it’s not that I was overwhelmed. Not at all. It’s just what you call, uh, new evidence. I call much ado about nothing. Okay, but it’s not. Okay, E. J. I know E. J., look at me.

I know you’re resistant because of your personal animus toward Gabby. Okay, but if you would just take a look at me. At this new evidence, you would see that all of it points toward Gil being Lee Shin’s murderer and not my wife. We’re just asking you to agree to reopen the case. And I’ve already told you that I will not.

And isn’t it highly irregular for the husband of the convicted party to be carrying around an evidence folder about her case? Rafe gave it to me in hopes that I could convince you to change your mind. Ah, of course. The brother of the convicted killer. Brilliant! No conflict of interest there at all. God knows, one can’t expect the police commissioner to follow proper protocol.

Okay, look. Obviously, Rafe has a personal interest in seeing Dabby’s case reopened. But that doesn’t make him wrong. Now, there is new evidence, and it is compelling. All I’m asking is that you put your personal resentment aside and put your job and the law first.

I have some important business to attend to, excuse me.

You’re going to regret that, big brother.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. You

really think he looks like me? Yeah, I do, I do. You know, studies have shown that adoptive children will pick up the expressions and the mannerisms of their adoptive parents. So, clearly, he’s getting your smile. You know, this is so weird, because now that you mention it, I can see it too, I really can. What do you think about that, cowboy?

You’re my little mini me. Hey, Eric, um, I’ve been meaning to ask you, how’s, uh, how’s everything going on the home front here? How are you and Sloan managing, okay? How we manage, why do you ask? Well, I asked because your mom had told me that, uh, finances might be a little bit tight here with the adoption expenses, you know, and all the baby stuff, you know?

Yeah, yeah, I mean, um Things have been a little rough this one night. We put a big budget together. So things are looking up. Good. Glad to hear that. Now, but if you need any help at all, you know, We’re right here for you. Listen, I appreciate that, but you know what? I’ve got more money coming in now, so it’s good.

All right, that’s good to know, kid. Yeah, you know, we just had to make a little adjustment. But, um, it’s part of raising a kid, right? Yeah.

Can you at least be honest with me? Do you not want to spend time with me? Did I say that? Well, you didn’t have to say it. Honey, it’s in your actions. What actions? All I said is I have to study. Okay, so can you please stop gaslighting me? All right, honey, I’m, I’m sorry. And I’m sorry if you feel like I’m smothering you.

No, I didn’t say I feel like you are. I said you are. And, you know what? I think it’s totally unfair. You want me to get good grades, get into great college, and be this, like, perfect daughter so you can brag about me to anyone who’ll listen. But you won’t let me do normal things, like go to the prom and hang out with my friends and just have a life.

Honey, that is not true. I mean, I do want all those things. Things for you, but that’s not what this is about. That’s exactly what this is about! You still don’t trust me! And, and no matter how hard I try, Mom, nothing I do will ever be good enough for you.

What’s that face? Come on, don’t play coy with me, Ava. Just level with me. I, I don’t know what you’re talking about. You told me that you and Stefan DiMera were up to your eyeballs in Clyde Weston’s drug operations. Bistro, yes. And then when Stefan got caught, he fell on a sword. He left your name out of it.

So I think that’s a secret that Weston can hold over your head. And I’m sure he wants his black book returned so he can finance his life on the run. So I bet he’s been in touch with you. Get that book back. Is that about right, Ava?

I’d like to file a complaint. What the hell, Mr. Damara? You don’t get to barge in here without an appointment. This is not your, I don’t have time for red tape, mayor price, and neither do you. What? What are you talking about? The complaint I wanna file, it’s against my brother, the da. I have some pretty damning information about him that I think you’ll find to be fascinating.

Is that right? Well, come on my manners. Have a seat. Mr. Jemerah, I’m all ears.

Yes, Rita, I want you to buy another thousand shares of Titan stock. I know that. I just want to have all my ducks in a row before the board votes tomorrow. That’s right, Rita. I will soon be E. J. DeMirra, permanent CEO of DeMirra Enterprises. It does have a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

So tell me, Eric, how are things going with the Spectator? Are you enjoying it over there? I am. I’m just glad to have a steady kick. Well, the Spectator is lucky to have you. Thank you. I just hope that my photos can make a difference. Yeah? How so? Uh, Nicole? She’s doing a story on Salem homeless. And I’m doing the photography for it.

That sounds like an important piece. Well, it is, and I just hope that it can bring awareness to not only Salem, but um, you know, just everyone across the country. Yeah, and the two of you are working well together? Yeah. Yeah, yeah, we are. Very well. So, how did, how did Sloan take the news that you were gonna be working with Nicole?

I can’t imagine she would be too happy about that. Yeah, yeah, I wish she wasn’t at first. But you know what, she understood that I needed the job. And it’s not difficult for you working that close to Nicole? No, no, not at all. I mean, well, you know, we, we’re always gonna have a connection, but We’re friends.

And that’s all.

Honey, how can you say that? I’m not proud of you. My God, I am so proud of you in so many ways. I’m just worried that you’re pushing yourself too hard. And you want to know why I do that? Why I’ve pushed myself ever since I was a little girl, it’s because I didn’t want to be any trouble, Mom. I didn’t want to be the reason that the next guy walks out the door.

Wow. I’m sorry to hear that. And I’m sad that you worried about that. Yeah, well, I did. Honey, if I had known, I would have told you that you are my pride and joy. And that, that My relationship’s failing had nothing to do with you, okay? And going back to the topic at hand, it’s just, oh honey, how will you push yourself?

I just think maybe you could, maybe you could drop a couple classes and pick them up in the summer. So you want to take away my summer from me now too? No, no, I, I don’t want to do that. I just want you to have options. I never had any options. I never even went to college. Yeah, and look at you now. What is that supposed to mean?

It means maybe that’s why I pushed myself, Mom. Did you ever think about that? That maybe I don’t want to end up like you?

Okay, enough with the PI inquisition. I don’t know what you’re talking about. I know that Stefan DiMera found Weston’s book and took it to the police. And what I know is he would be wise. To stay the hell out of it. Oh, I wish I could. But thanks to you, I can’t. Because John and I broke Weston out of prison.

And if he gets caught, he’s gonna send us all down the river. We’re all going to jail. Okay, it’s not gonna happen. How do you know that? Prison bars are not gonna keep Clyde from ruining people’s lives or taking them. And look, I know that Harris wants him captured. But for me, I’m looking for a more permanent solution.

Now, I understand that you’re in a bit of political trouble, Mayor Price. And that my brother E. J. isn’t helping your cause. Mm. D. A. DiMera and I are indeed at odds. Meaning, you’d like to wipe him off the face of the planet, right? We are at odds. Right. Well, speaking for myself and why EJ and I are at odds, He’s refusing to reopen a murder case in which new evidence has come to light that would exonerate the convicted killer and free said killer from a lifelong prison sense.

Now he is doing this to further his own ambitions and because he hates the person convicted of the crime. So he is using his office, his power to perpetuate a grudge, which in my humble opinion is immoral and quite frankly, reprehensible. Sounds like it is. Yes. Now, in full disclosure, the person who would be exonerated by this new evidence is my wife, Gabby DiMera, and she would be found innocent in the crime of killing Leesha.

Uh huh. Well, um, well, I, I’d have to see all this new evidence if I’m going to work. Done and done. I have it right here.

Well, that was a very hurtful thing to say. Yeah, well, I was being honest, that’s all. The way you’ve lived your life is not how I want to live mine, okay? I want another path for myself. Honey, I want another path for you too. And I don’t know, maybe that’s why I’ve been so strict with you, why I hover.

Because I know that I would have had a different life if my childhood wasn’t so screwed up. I mean, my mother

She was caring and she had a good heart, but she was abused by my father just like I was. And everything was just about survival more than anything else for her and for me. I just want you to understand that nobody was there for me. Not the way that I needed. Well, that’s really sad, Mom, but you trying to control my life is not the same as being there for me.

Honey, I’m not trying to control your life. I just want you to be safe. And, and after what happened on New Year’s, I Really? Really? Are we gonna go there again? I mean, God, how many times are you gonna bring that up to justify ruining my life? Ruining your life? Yes! That’s what this feels like! Okay, you know what?

I admit that I have made some bad choices in my life. And those choices not only hurt me, but they hurt you as well. And honey, I regret that. I do. I regret it.

And I know I haven’t been consistent in my parenting. But the one thing I have been consistent with is how much I love you. Always, and forever, and the one thing I want more for you in this world is to be happy, and safe, and to have a good life. That’s all I want too, Mom. Hey, then we finally agree on something.

Honey, what, what can I do to make things better? Oh. For one thing, you can trust me more. Trust my judgment. And, Mom, you have to understand that getting good grades, it is important to me. But, it’s not enough. I want to have the whole high school experience, you know? Honey, please, don’t. But, Mom. Mom, listen to me.

It would make me so happy if I could go to the prom. And you just said you want me to be happy, right? I, I swear I won’t get into any trouble. I promise. No.

It’s not an option, honey. I’m sorry. My mom, we just, we just talked about. I, I know. But you almost died. And I love you dearly. And it pains me to have to say this. But you have not earned that kind of trust back with me. You love me dearly. Yeah, right. You love me so much, you’re keeping me a prisoner in this house, probably till I’m middle aged, and I’d rather be dead.

Don’t say that. No, honestly, all the babies you lost were lucky because they never had to deal with you as a mother. Did you ever just think that maybe motherhood isn’t your thing because you’re not good at it? So you should have never had kids in the first place. Give

I’m so glad that You and Holly still have your connection. It’s important to her and she, she looks up to you. She does. I just tried to be there for her. You know, without stepping on Nicole and EJ’s toes. Yeah, it’s gotta be a little tricky. It is, but we’re finding our way. Listen, I, I better get you at home.

You’re going to be spending a little time with your mommy. Isn’t that right, big guy? I need to meet Nicole about this story. Ed, I need to, um, I need to get to work. I’ve got a, a client I need to see. Alright, alright. Well, that’ll give Steve and me some time to go over some cases here. So, Eric, I’ll see you around, buddy.

Yeah. And you Mister, tell your old man to drop in more often. Please tell him that. And seriously, anytime you need some help watching the baby, we are completely here for you. I know. Thank you, Mom. So, yeah, I’ll see y’all soon. See ya. Take care, kid. Yeah. Oh no, we couldn’t let him go. Take care. Bye, honey. Okay, so I’ll, um, I’ll see you for supper tonight.

Sounds like a plan. I want to tell you, I am so glad that you and Steve are back on good terms. It’s all thanks to you, Doc. I love you. Love you.

You’re right. This is compelling, but, uh, it hardly proves anything. It’s all circumstantial. Okay, please just talk to the police commissioner. Even he wants this case reopened. Hmm, why wouldn’t he? The convicted killer is his sister. Oh, and your wife. Okay, that is true, but it’s also true that Gabby is innocent.

Now, I understand that this case is a case It’s not a slam dunk. But this evidence at least casts a reasonable doubt on that conviction. It needs to be investigated. And EJ’s refusing to even consider it? My brother is a, uh, stubborn man. He’s also a very ambitious man. And I think that he’s afraid of the truth coming out.

Why? Look. I’m aware of his acts to grind with your wife, but why would he be afraid of the truth? What does Gabby’s possible exoneration have to do with his ambition? Well, it is painfully obvious to me that EJ is afraid that if Gabby goes free, she’s gonna come back and try and take over Tamara Enterprises, possibly booting him out of his highly coveted CEO seat yet again.

What do you mean, again? Oh, right, you probably didn’t hear because you were recovering from your ailments. EJ temporarily appointed himself CEO of DiMera while I was dealing with my, uh, circumstances and I was booted out of the job. No, I knew that. So? He’s acting CEO, so what? Okay, okay, I would not think it’s a big deal either.

If EJ weren’t trying to make himself permanent CEO while still serving as Salem DA. What? He knows the city’s bylaws That’s right. And he didn’t even think to clear it with me. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Oh. Yes. You need to drop whatever it is you’re doing, DiMera, and get into my office right now.

What exactly are you insinuating, Ava? Oh, I’m not insinuating anything, Steve. I am telling you, I agree with you. If Clyde gets captured, yeah, he is gonna sell all of us out. You, me, and John. So we need a way for that not to happen. A permanent solution to the Clyde situation. Hey, hey. Hey. Hey. Sorry, am I, uh, interrupting something?

No, no, not at all. Just talking about Tripp. So happy to hear they’re doing so well. Yeah. Yeah. I gotta get going. Talk to you later. Alright.

Glad we ran into each other. We have to talk. Yeah, okay. What’s it about? Is, did Gabby get a new trial date set? Hardly. EJ was his normal bullheaded, high handed self. Not at all receptive to reopening the case. Yeah. Yeah. No surprise there. Well, not to worry, because, uh, Something tells me his control over the situation might soon come to an abrupt halt.

Took you long enough. I’m a very busy man, Matt Price, and I dislike being summoned. Do I need to remind you that you work for me, Mr. DiMera? You’ve already reminded me, Mayor. Many, many times. In fact, it’s like a song that one can’t get out of one’s head on constant loop. Now, what was so urgent? First of all, I want to know why you’re dismissing the new evidence in the Leeshan murder case.

Ah, so my brother’s gotten to you. I should have known. Well, since you didn’t go to law school, let me put this in terms that you can understand. There was simply not enough evidence to Let me stop your condescending ass right there and put this in terms that you understand. Now, I am tired of you using your office to further your private vendettas and aspirations.

So that’s going to stop right now and you’re going to do as I instruct you to.

Who else?

Marlena, is this about time? No, not at all. I’m on a break. Oh, darling, what’s happened? I’m a terrible person, Marlena. I just said some really horrible things to my mom and now I hate myself. Oh, sweetie. Cut.

Oh. Oh. Hello, handsome. What you doing? Nicole, are you okay? I’ve been waiting for you. Oh. Oh. I lost track of time. Where are you? Uh, at a place where nobody knows your name, hopefully. Nicole, where are you? I’m at that small bar. What do you think? Oh, man. All right, don’t go anywhere. I’m coming to get you. Hey.

Hi. Don’t

you stop by, man. Yeah, no problem. You know, I just had lunch with Kayla at the pub. And I’m telling you, she is as perceptive as ever, by the way. What’s that mean? Well, she knows there’s something up with the Maggie and Constantine situation. You Well, you didn’t tell her anything. No, all I told her was I’ll let her in on what’s going on as soon as the time is right.

And, you know, she didn’t like that, but she accepted it for now. All right. That’s good. Yeah. I have some really good news, though. I might have a lead on Clyde Weston. What are you talking about? Well, when Kayla and I were having lunch, Jada stopped by, sat with us for a bit, She said the police have gotten their hands on Clyde Weston’s black book, which could have all of his drug trade contacts.

Oh, geez. This could be a huge partner. Yeah, could be. The only thing is, it’s all in code and no one’s been able to decipher it yet. All right, can we get our hands on a copy of it? I did talk to Jada and ask her to mention to Rafe and maybe we can get our hands on one. I mean, if the ISA got a hold of this, they could be able to crack it.

Yeah, we gotta stay on top of this. You know what? Maybe I’ll give Rafe a call myself and find out if he’s down to giving us a copy. The other thing is, I ran into Ava outside the pub. It is your lunch hour. So what’s your favorite little troublemaker up to this time? Well, I’m not sure. But I can tell you, I think she knows a lot more about Clyde Weston and his whereabouts than she’s letting on.

And then I told her she was a terrible mom and that, and that the babies she lost were lucky because they never had to deal with having her as a mom. You must have been very angry. Like, that’s an excuse? I mean, that was quite literally the worst thing anybody has said to their mom in, like, the whole history of the universe.

Well, I think we could use a little perspective. I, I, I don’t understand it, why I do what I mean. I say these nasty, awful things to her, things that I really, I really don’t mean, and God, I just feel so guilty afterwards. Well, sometimes we tend to lash out at the people that we’re closest to, and they, They tend to do the same thing to us, and it’s because we know each other so well.

Yeah, I guess, but this was really, really bad, and I don’t know what to do. I just want to tell her I’m sorry, but she won’t answer her phone. Yeah, well, she’s upset. You need to give her some time with this. You know what? What was she could try? You could You could write her a letter. Put everything down in writing and express what you’re feeling and what you’re going through and then, then when you see her next you could, you could read it to her or you could just give it to her.

Won’t that like be weird to just pull out a letter while I’m giving her an apology? Well it might feel a little odd in the moment. But you can explain to your mother that you wanted to, to talk to her when you were feeling calm and rational and not in a moment where your emotions were taking over the conversation.

You know, I’ve been involved in a number of those mother daughter conversations, both in my professional life and in my personal life. I have a little sense of what Nicole is going through. And I think she’s terrified. She’s just frightened of losing you, darling. Okay.

Okay. Aww.

Yep. True to form. Exactly what a terrible mother should do. Drown her sorrows in shots of booze. Booze. Thank God you’re still here. Oh, hey, uh, yes, sir. I’m right here, because that’s what you told me to do, and I take directions. Very well. Well, from you anyway, from my daughter, not so much. Alright, tell me all about it in the car.

Come on, let’s get you home. Really? Take me home? That’s so sweet. You know what? I’m gonna call EJ, let him know we’re coming. No, no, no, no. Don’t, don’t call EJ. He’s, he’s putting out fires. You know what? He should have been a fireman. Fireperson. No, firefighter! Firefighter! Oh, man. I can’t. Oh, God. Okay, now. My head.

So, I must do as you instruct me, or What? I’m fired? That ship has sailed, Counselor. You’re already fired. What are you talking about? You can’t do that. Sure I can, and I just did. See, you can’t keep your job as D. A. N. Moonlight, as the CEO of Demera. Not for the long haul. Not So you, clear out your desk, right now.

I’ll have security escort you out.

What the hell could Eva know? You don’t think that Clyde might be in touch with her, do you? She wouldn’t say, but I think it’s a good bet. Well, whether she talks or not Having that black book’s a great lead, so I’m all for the ISAC if they can crack that code. But if they can, and Westland is caught, you know he’s going to give us up for breaking him out of prison.

Yeah, I know that. So we’re just gonna have to. Prepare ourselves for that consequence.

So you pulled one over on EJ, huh? Oh, yeah. Went right over his head, straight to the mayor. Oh, I’m impressed. It was almost too easy. I had her at, my brother’s about to be voted in as permanent CEO of Demand and Crisis. She didn’t go for that, huh? No, she’s probably firing his sorry ass as we speak. Couldn’t happen to more arrogant son of a bitch.

That’s right. So, Harris, you have any luck setting the trap for Weston? No, not yet, but Clyde is aching to get his hands on that book. He thinks it’ll happen soon? Yeah, well, when Clyde is caught, we’ll be shouting hallelujah. You and I both.

Oh, you will pay for this, Paulina.

Okay, here we go. Come on.

I’m so sorry. We were supposed to work. It’s okay. It’s okay. We can finish our work tomorrow. Let’s just get you inside. You’re better. Okay. Oh! Okay, that makes sense. Mom tries to control me because she’s afraid of losing me. Like she did my baby brothers. Right. And she’s doing that because she’s, she’s afraid that she might lose you.

She’s afraid of what happened on New Year’s Eve. So she needs some help with that and you’re going to have to work really hard. To gain back her trust. Yeah. I get that now. You can do it. You both can. Because you both want it so much. And because you love each other so much.

Okay. Here we go. Hey. Hi. Thank you. Thank you for taking such good care of me. You always do. You are the best person in the whole wide world. Okay, shh. Stop talking so loud. Let’s just try to get you upstairs. Okay, come on. You know what? Wait, wait. You are like my knight in shiny armor. And I, I’m going to give you a goodnight kiss.

No, no, I don’t think that’s a Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.

gregory: [Weakly] We are… g-gathered here today to…

[ Clears throat ] …Witness and… uh, celebrate, uh… the…marriage of — of these… two… beautiful young people.

[ Clears throat ]

[ Groans ] Brook — brook lynn and ch-a-ase… are you… …r-ready to enter — enter into the… the holy state of… matr– matrimony?

[ Gregory inhales deeply and groans ]

[ Groans ] Dad?

[ Groans ]

[ Exhales shakily ] Are you okay? Just give him a minute.

[ Gregory groaning ]

[ Gregory groaning ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Can you breathe?

[ Grunts ] Y-yeah. Good. It’s okay. Take all the time you need. Everybody understands. It’s okay.

[ Gregory groans ]

[ Gregory exhales sharply ] Don’t worry about the order. Breathe.

[ Gregory groans ] I can finish this like I promised you. Or we can just wait. Nobody minds. Thank you. As I was saying…

[ Light laughter ] Brook lynn and chase… are you ready to enter into the holy state of matrimony, which is an honorable estate and not one to be entered into lightly but humbly and reverently? Are you willing to take your vows in the presence of this company and in the sight of god?

Brook lynn and chase, please take hands. Harrison, do you take brook lynn to be your lawful wedded wife? Do you promise to love and comfort her, to honor and keep her in sickness and in health… in prosperity and adversity… and, forsaking all others, to be faithful to her for as long as you both shall live? I do. Brook lynn… do you take harrison to be your lawful wedded husband? Do you promise to love and comfort him… to honor and keep him in sickness and in health… in prosperity and adversity… and, forsaking all others, to be faithful to him for as long as you both shall live? I do. Shakespeare wrote… “true love cannot be found where it truly does not exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does.” Harrison and brook lynn, your love cannot be hidden. It illuminates you both. May the light of love you see in each other’s eyes today be with you for all the years to come.

Harrison, repeat after me. Actually, dad, I have this memorized and I’m kind of proud of it, so…

[ Laughter ] Okay. I, harrison chase, take you, brook lynn quartermaine, to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health… to love and to cherish till death do us part.

[ Exhales sharply ] Brook lynn? I, brook lynn quartermaine, take you, harrison chase, to be my wedded husband… to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health… to love and to cherish until death do us part. Best man, do you have the rings? Yeah.

[ Laughter ] These rings that you present each other are emblems of the union which you this day, declare, and they will henceforth affirm. May they remind you and all others of the bond between you and of the act of faith in which you now partake. Harrison… place this ring on brook lynn’s finger and repeat after me. “With this ring, I thee wed.” Chase: With this ring… I thee wed. You know, some people, they — they just know the first time they lay eyes on each other. It’s like they’re struck by lightning.

[ Chuckles ] That was not us.

[ Laughter ] No, the first time I saw you, I was struck by a bottle that you swung at my head! That bottle is still in evidence lockup. Now it… it’s just evidence of my love for you. You’re a force of nature, brook lynn. You are a tsunami, a tornado, and earthquake all in one — unstoppable, invincible, impossibly beautiful woman. And that love and faith that you have in me… makes me feel invincible, too. And I promise I will bring the strength and love that you inspire in me every single day to our marriage… …to our children. Just as my dad always did for me. I don’t know if anyone’s ever been so lucky to get hit in the head with a bottle. But here I am! At your side. Forever. Gregory: [ Clears throat ] I’m okay. Just…very, very grateful.

Brook lynn… place this ring on harrison’s finger and repeat after me. “With this ring, I thee wed.” With this ring… I thee wed. When I was a little girl, I used to wonder, “what kind of man will I marry?” Being surrounded by so many strong women, they always taught me never to settle, to hold out for the best possible man like they did. So I made myself a list. My groom-to-be had to be… handsome… and strong… and smart. And he had to love music. And he had to love me. Check, check, check, check, and check.

[ Laughter ] But there was one thing I forgot to put on that list. This is a biggie. The husband of my dreams also had to be good. He had to be kind… and patient… and fair… and just…good. And you, chase, are a good man. You literally make the world a better place every single time you leave the house, and you make my world a better place every single time you come home. You keep people safe… and right wrongs… and you do your best to prevent people from making bad decisions, no matter how stubborn they may be. Not gonna mention any names, but it’s me.

[ Laughter ] And even when those baddecisions sometimes happen, you show up with patience… and forgiveness… and always, always love. So I am so grateful I hit you over the head with that bottle!

[ Laughter ] And it was an accident! I don’t know how many times I have to tell you that! So I just hope that, when I need it, you’ll give me your forgiveness. And I promise I will always give you mine. But the promise I make to you today, to love and to cherish you always… it’s the easiest promise I ever made. Even easier to keep. By the power vested in me by the state of new york… I now pronounce you husband and wife. Son, you may kiss your bride.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cheers and applause ] Congratulations, pal. Thank you so much. Thank you for the best wedding ever. Oh. Thank you, son. For being patient when I got a little stuck. Everybody loves a comeback. I’m just glad nobody left. On the bright side, I — well, my bucket list is now complete. About that, I have one more thing to add to your list. Holding our first child. There you go. There you go. Take one of those with you. I’m not hungry right now.

[ Laughter ] Honey, those aren’t for eating. Then what are they for? You just follow me, and I will show you just what to do. You know, you are the one that served the love potion at the picnic, so, technically, this whole thing is kind of your fault. So I’m the bringer of happiness. You’re damn straight you are. You guys, I’ll see you there, okay? -Olivia? -Yeah, honey. Can you take me to the reception? Well, but you’re gonna — you’re gonna miss out on throwing the bird seed, honey. That’s okay. I need to get ready for my big surprise. Ohh. Okay. Well, then, let’s go. See ya.

[ Laughs ] What? Oh, your mom. Your — your whole family. Oh, yeah. Yeah. They’re something else, aren’t they? Damn straight. Uh-huh. Hey, well, lucky you.

[ Patting ] We’re part of your family now, too.

[ Laughs ] Yeah… dex: Yeah, she looked great…

[ Indistinct conversations ] Dad, everything okay? Yeah. Lot of familiar faces. People I haven’t seen in years. They’re still always your people.

[ Chuckles ] Nothing changes that, right? Mnh-mnh. Well, your people are my people, so you’ll have to introduce me at the reception. Oh, I will. That was such a beautiful wedding. I thought I saw you get all teared up with the bride and groom. I guess I’m one of those people who cries at weddings. Maybe you should think about that. Nice job, kiddo.

[ Sobbing loudly ] -You gotta stop crying! -You first! So, the ceremony. Any notes? Ask maxie. Oh, I was just saying the natural light could have been a touch brighter. Doesn’t the natural light come from the sun? Exactly, spinelli. The sun had one job.

[ Brook lynn chuckles ] Well, did the natural light work for you? I don’t know. All I could see was you. Aww. I wish we could do it all over again. Too bad. Because this wedding was your first, your last, and your only… though I would be open to renewing our vowels every 30 years or so. Yeah, well, I was thinking every 10 to 15. Well, I can’t wait to argue about it. How do you feel about sitting down? I found a quiet little room off the altar. Oh, the sacristy.

[ Chuckles ] Is that what it’s called? Everything’s called something. Thank you. I could use a quiet moment. Alright, then. Follow me. You know, I appreciate you, tracy. You’re always thinking ahead, anticipating what I might need, but always letting me make the choice. You know me. I don’t like to be pushy.

[ Chuckles ] You have great finesse… and grace, which everyone here saw today when my body was refusing to make words. Well, I believe that every wedding should have some suspense.

[ Chuckles ] Um, forgive me if this is… uh, too much. I’m on the edge of my seat. I sometimes wonder what life would be like if I had met you when I was 25 or 30. I…have had the same…question. A couple of times. And? What answer did you come up with? That life would have definitely been very different. Today… would have been very different. And since today our two families were joined in such a beautiful, joyous way… …why would anyone want to change that? Why, indeed.

[ Cheers and applause ] Lois: Aww!

Oh, my god. That wedding was so beautiful. Wow. This is a fun party. Who knew lois would be the subdued one?

[ Laughs ] Ah. After you. Grazie. Thank you. To the happy couple. Cheers. Mm. At what point… do you think it’s okay to slide out of a wedding reception without it being rude? Oh, come on. Don’t tell me you’re bored already. Oh, no, no, I’m not bored. It’s just that at weddings I tend to look around and I see missed chances. Thank you. You know, watching brook lynn and chase today made me realize… you know, when you say those vows, you really think you know what you’re in for. Truth is… none of us have a clue. I’m just glad that we’re in it together. I am gonna pretend like I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ll be right back. Didn’t expect to see you here. Yeah. Monica asked me to come. Yeah. I meant, I didn’t expect to see you at all. But I guess ne ither of us havemade an effort to see each other since your return. Should we? I think the fact that you’re asking that question pretty much answers itself. Okay. Okay. Okay. Pictures, pictures! Okay, a little separation of the black suits there. You step right to the side, to the side, to the side, side, to — okay, you’re good. Um, you move there, and I’m here. We’re ready. Everybody say, “formaggio.” All: Formaggio!

Easy feeling

like it’s meant to be

nothing in my life so appealing

ever seemed so right for me girls, girls! We need to even it out. Come on, over here, over here. Okay, flowers out, flowers out. The pretty. Smile. Okay.

Will last ’cause

all that you are is better by far

than all I hoped you’d ever be

a million dreams whisper to me

from inside your name

next to you I found my way

to someday touching up or hiding out? A little bit of both.

[ Chuckles ] And what about you? I notice that you’re here with drew. Oh, well, drew’s here. I’m here. And that’s all there is to that. Mm-hmm. Seems like you and drew had a little bit of a vibe going on. Well, we are both single people at a wedding. We tend to travel in packs for our own survival. Ah. Been there.

[ Laughs ] I’m not exactly sure

why I was invited. Well, you were chase’s boss for a really long time. Not anymore. But that is the kind of guy chase is. Come to think of it, it could have been ned’s idea, too. Ned? Why ned? Yeah. Yeah, ever since I became deputy mayor, he’s become a lot more friendly. Oh, so this is a schmooze invite.

[ Chuckles ] At this point, anything’s possible. Yeah, curtis thinks we were invited because brook lynn has booked clients at his club. Including chase. So I guess we were both schmooze invitees. Exactly. Anything is possible. Mm-hmm.

[ Chuckles ] Ah. Oh. Excuse me. Everything okay? Everything’s fine. Yeah. We were actually just trying to figure out which family invited us. Oh! And since one of those families is your family… we thought maybe you could shed a little light on the mystery. Well, that would either be a lois question or a tracy question. Mm. Yeah, we’re gonna ask lois. We’ll ask lois. Yeah. 100%. My two cents — any social event is only improved by the gorgeousness. Aw.

[ Laughs ] Woman’s got a point. That does explain it.

[ Chuckles ] Shall we? Yes. Oh, it is so pretty. So, um, [Laughs] Thank you for a really wonderful afternoon. You’re not leaving, are you? Well, alison and i are staying here in the hotel, actually, I mean, just for the time being, but, um, I figured you’d want to catch up with friends and family. Stay. You know why? I don’t know if you know, but one of, uh, those old friends owns a hotel, and she throws great parties.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I will then. Um, excuse me, mr. Corinthos. Ah, come in! What, you’re two grown up to call me uncle sonny? Uncle sonny. Yeah, look at you, gio. Fix your tie there. Natalia, this is giovanni palmieri. We call him gio. Gio, nice to meet you.

[ Chuckles ] That was beautiful today. I really admire your musicianship. Well, thank you. How long have you been playing? Oh, as long as I can remember. Uh, my mother was a violinist and… she was much better than I am. He’s just being modest. He studied with the best teachers in new york. Thanks to uncle sonny. He paid for my lessons and my first two years at college. Really? Very generous.Let me tell you something. He deserves a shot. I’m gonna tell you why. He will be a concert violinist. Ain’t that right, gio? Thanks to you, uncle sonny. Get over here. Aw.

Sam? Wow, you two. Hi. Enjoy the wedding? Oh, it was so beautiful. Yes. And chase’s dad. I know, so brave. He did such a nice job, right?

[ Cellphone chimes ] Yeah. Yeah. It was amazing. Uh-oh. Dante’s cousin patty is causing trouble again. Well, sam to the rescue. Yeah, so we’ll, uh, talk over cake. Yeah, for sure. Bye. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a little over-chaperoned. Your mom was nice today.

[ Chuckles ] She made eye contact. She smiled, even. In a warm and welcoming way? You know, more of a “keep your hands off my daughter” way, but, hey, I’ll take it. It’s funny, my mom’s been known to do the same thing. She’s objected to your girlfriends? One in particular. But I can’t say she was entirely wrong. And if you ever tell anyone that… okay, who would even believe me? Good.

[ Chuckles ] Where’s your mom anyway? Albany. The law license thing. Yes. God, I hope she gets it back. You really like your mom, don’t you? Uh, I love my mom. Mm. Like? Kind of depends on the day, you know? I hear that. Yeah. There’s one thing our moms have in common that’s so important — they’re crazy about us. Just not so crazy about our choices. Of course, she just wants the best for you. My job is to convince your mother that what’s best for you is me. Actually, you don’t need to convince her about anything, because you’ve already convinced me. Some– sometimes my lens gets caught under my eyelid, and I can’t get it out. I’m half blind. Ma, ma, just lean your head back. I’m gonna try and fish it out. Come on. Are you crazy? You’ll skewer my eyeball with those nails of yours. You know, let me get you a tissue. You know what? I have an idea. Like, just look down — can you look down at your shoes for a second?

That same pretty girl gave me a smile I can see! Ah! I can see! Aw, see? I’m going back to the dance floor.

[ Laughter ] Anna: I think they look very nice. Lovely. They’re really so nice. Me, too. Thank you. So… okay, let’s go dance. Okay. Ah. Thanks. Hey, uh, what can I get you? Not a thing. Why don’t you sit here with me? I’d love to.

[ Sighs ] You were a rock star today. That’s nice of you to say. Dad, you were. Everybody’s been talking about how perfect the wedding was. I hope you’ll allow yourself a little pat on the back. If you insist, but if anyone was a rock star today, it was tracy. She bravely stood between me and disaster. Yeah, tracy was something else. You two make a good team. I’m just glad the ceremony came off. Performing that ceremony in front of all these people — skydiving’s got nothing on that. Oh, gregory. Thank you so much for such a lovely service. It was my pleasure. Hey, this is my pops, carmine cerullo. Pops, this is the father of the groom, professor gregory chase. Yeah, we met at — yeah, when we were taking pictures. Yeah. Oh! And, of course, you know that familiar mug. Right? Come on. You remember sonny. Sonny.

[ Chuckles ] This one — this one was at my house so much when he was a kid that after you’d go home, my gloria, she’d take a headcount at bedtime, just to make sure none of ours are out there getting into trouble. She’d say, “pop, we’re short one. Sonny’s not here.”

[ Laughter ] Come here. -Thank you. -Thank you. Uh, yes, sales are up. And I have a feeling it has to do with our new face of deception. That’s so good to hear. Well, I look forward to having our accountant verify your tally, and that way my daughter can get her cut, as per her contract. You don’t get invited to a lot of parties, do you? Well, this is a surprise. Yeah, people keep saying that. Monica asked me to come. So here you are. Yeah. So, tell me if this is a bad idea. Oh, boy. Do you think jake would like to go out on the lake with me? You mean, like, fishing or something? Uh, that, or, you know, if he thinks that’s too boring, maybe we’d get a speed boat or something. Excuse me. Are you jason quartermaine? Mrs. Cerullo. Ah! It’s been a long time. But did you ever become a doctor? No. Oh. You know what? I don’t blame you. I can’t stand the sight of blood, either. Oh. Oh! Look who’s here — our honorary son, sonny!

[ Both chuckle ] Hey, maxie. Question. Spinelli. Response. Was there a — a bride at the wedding? Was there a what? Because all I could see… was you.

[ Laughs ] I can’t think of a better place than at my best friend’s wedding to tell you that I love you.

[ Cheers and applause ] Kisses! Kisses!

[ Cheers and applause ]

Gregory, thank you so much. The ceremony could not have been more perfect. I think it could have used fewer pauses, myself. Hey, you were there. You did it. And I will thank you for this day every day of my life.

[ Glass tapping ] Can I have everyone’s attention, please?

[ Tapping continues ] Everyone’s attention, please.

[ Tapping continues ] Yo! I’m trying to talk here!

[ Laughter ] Thank you. Now that we have the guests of honor, I would like to present them with a tray of the cocktail of the day. This gorgeous concoction is known as — wait for it — the brook lynn chaser.

[ Laughter ] You get it? Please explain the subtleties to us. You know what? We’ll take two right here. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. This delicious beverage was such a hit at the bridal shower, I decided it deserved a revival, but the happy couple gets first dibs. Oh, my god, no, no, no, no, no. I’m terrified of spilling anything on my dress. What for? It’s not like you’re gonna wear it again. Yeah! Well, in that case, I’ll take two! I want to toast my groom. I’d prefer to be called your husband. Mm. Oh. Hey, hello again. Ah. Hey. Hello, mr. Cerullo. We didn’t get a chance to talk before when they were taking the pictures. Yeah, we were all kinds of busy. We were. But, um, we’re not now. Are you? Uh, no, no, I guess not. So I understand my granddaughter’s new, uh, new brother-in-law is a — is a doctor. A doctor, yes, yes. Yes, I am. I gotta show you something. I got the… worst rash on my leg over here. Is there any kind of a, uh, lotion or a cream that I should be using? I mean, my wife has got, like, a dozen or so at home, but nothing seems to work here. Spinelli. Hi. Oh, hey, samantha. Are you enjoying the festivities? I am, indeed. Actually, I like watching dante being swarmed by his relatives.

[ Chuckles ] And you? Yourself? Ah, yes, I am having the best time I’ve had in years. Okay. Well, um, I’m not gonna keep you long. I just wanted to know if the jackal would be available to work with me on a new case? Uh, could you give me a tiny hint as to who we’d be investigating? The fbi. Friend of mine, she happens to be the best dermatologist in the city. Since you’re gonna be in town for a few days, you give her a call, you tell her I sent you. Thanks again, doc. It’s tough to sleep with your leg on fire from 2:00 A.M. On. Can really spoil your day. Yeah. So, to express my gratitude, have a drink on me. Oh. Cheers. Yeah. Uh, excuse me, everyone. Can I have your attention? Please? Excuse me. That’s my daughter. Ooh, she’s an angel, hmm? We have a little surprise for the newlyweds. Violet promised the bride and groom that she would sing a song at their wedding. But what she didn’t tell you is that she would write the song herself. So brook lynn, chase, this is for you.

[ Strums guitar ]

Today is a day for the ring and the cake the sun shines above, it’s true love today is the day all your worries fly away into the blue with the doves, it’s true love everywhere that you look, it’s true love every picture you took, it’s true love every promise you make, it’s true love can someone bring me some cake? My true love today, with a kiss you both got your wish that you’re dreaming of, your true love today you said yes in your beautiful dress the doves fly by with true love la-la-la-la-la-la it’s true love la-la-la-la-la-la it’s true love la-la-la-la-la-la it’s true love la-la-la-la-la-la it’s true love

[ Cheers and applause ] Your little one isn’t just an angel. She’s a star. Yeah.

Salute. Yeah.

Deacon: Nah. Let ’em have their opinions, as long as I got you.

Sheila: Yeah, but loving me could make you a pariah.

Deacon: Pariah? Is that a fancy word for “happiest man alive”?

[ Sheila chuckles ]

Sheila: No. But that’s a lot nicer than what steffy had to say to me today.

Deacon: You saw steffy?

Sheila: Uh-huh. Yeah, she paid me, uh, a little visit. She wanted to make sure that I knew I had no place in her life or her family.

Brooke: What zende did was unconscionable! I– I know that he didn’t try to take advantage of her. He wouldn’t do that. But still, he knew that she was your girlfriend.

Rj: I don’t think that I’m ever going to be able to work with zende again. But I– I do believe in luna, and what we have together. And I think that we can move past this. I just don’t need any more reminders of what happened that night.

Poppy: Luna, I know you’re scared–

Luna: Just tell me, mom. What does it say? Is it negative? Is it positive? Am I pregnant?

Brooke: I want you both to move on from this too, sweetheart.

Rj: I know. It’s just, it doesn’t help to keep bringing it up, okay? Listen, I– I– luna made it very clear that she’s not interested in zende and that she thought it was me, and I believe her. Luna loves me, mom. Only me.

[ Rj chuckles ]

Brooke: Good! I just hope there’s not long-lasting effects for you and luna in this situation.

Rj: There won’t be.

Brooke: Okay.

Rj: I’m gonna make sure of that.

Luna: Oh, it’s positive, isn’t it? Just say it. I’ve ruined everything.

Poppy: You haven’T.

Luna: Well, that’s easy for you to say. I’m not like you, mom. Like, having a baby right now–

Poppy: You’re not.

Luna: What?

Poppy: You’re not pregnant.

Luna: Oh, my god. Are you serious?

[ Poppy laughing ] Wait, let me see. Oh, my god. I have never been more relieved in my entire life. I’m not ready to have a baby right now, let alone zende’S.

Poppy: Well, you don’t have to worry about that, sweetheart.

Luna: Oh, my god.

[ Cell phone chimes ]

Luna: Oh, it’s rj. He wants me to go to his place.

Poppy: Good. Go. Rj’s forgiven you, and he’s a wonderful, caring young man, and there’s no reason to think that you can’t get past this. You just have to put that night out of your mind forever. Bring it in.

[ Both laughing ]

Liam: So, wait, so you actually saw sheila?

Steffy: I never thought I’d have to look at that evil face again.

Liam: You– okay, but I– I don’t know if confronting her is the best idea. Like, I don’t care what deacon says, she could snap any minute.

Steffy: I told her to stay away from finn, to leave us alone, and if she ever comes near the children or finn, she’s gonna have to answer to me.

Deacon: You know, the last time steffy was here, you two went at it.

Sheila: Yeah, well, don’t worry. I was on my best behavior.

Deacon: Ah.

Sheila: Really, I was. But so my– my son’s overbearing wife came here and threw a tantrum.

Deacon: Mm-hmm.

Sheila: Deacon, I– you know, I’ve been given another chance, and I finally have everything I’ve ever wanted in life: Pure, lasting, unconditional love.

Deacon: Well, I don’t know about pure.

Sheila: Mmm. I’m not gonna let you down, daddy. No, no more lashing out, getting angry, causing problems. I’m a changed woman.

[ Knocking on door ] Oh! Ah, that’s hope. I invited her over. I– I wanna tell her about the engagement.

Sheila: That’s right. You really think so? It’s a good idea?

Deacon: Yeah, yeah, of course I do. Yeah, give me a few minutes with her to run it by her, then we can tell everyone. Including finn.

Sheila: Yeah.

Deacon: Hey, kiddo. Thanks for stopping by.

Hope: Hey. Yeah.

Sheila: Hey.

Hope: Wow, it’s, uh, still like seeing a ghost. With moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,

Brooke: Yes. No, I agree. That’s perfect, katie. Okay, I’ll– oh, let me call you back. Uh, poppy. Poppy. Can I see you for a minute?

Poppy: Sure, brooke.

Brooke: Close the door.

Poppy: I’m assuming you wanna talk about our kids?

Brooke: I don’t think our kids are the problem. In fact, their maturity is very inspiring. Unlike yours.

Poppy: Mine?

Brooke: Our kids, luna and rj, deserve to be happy and secure. And they would be if it weren’t for you and your little “mints.” How can you be so reckless? I mean, really. Your lack of judgment is wreaking havoc in their lives.

Rj: Thank you for coming.

Luna: Wow. These are beautiful.

Rj: Yeah, for you. I had them sent here instead of your place because, uh, I just really wanted you to be here to enjoy ’em.

Luna: You want me here?

Rj: Yeah. All the time, as often as you want. Like how it used to be. Listen, um… I don’t want things to be awkward or sad between us anymore. You’re blaming yourself for something terrible that happened that wasn’t your fault. This is on zende and your mom, not you.

Luna: So you– you really forgive me?

Rj: I don’t blame you. I don’t want you blaming yourself. You know, a lot can change in one night, but it can’t change everything. We’re stronger than that.

Liam: I mean, hope told me all this. It’s just so– like, really? Like, finn is– thank you. He’s still all about this– the primal connection to his birth mother thing? Like, who happens to be a psychopath?

Steffy: He’s still trying to process all these conflicted, confusing feelings.

>Liam: Yeah, that’s my point. Feelings for the woman who shot you. And him.

Steffy: Like I said, I–

Liam: Okay, let me just– all I’m saying is, finn is your husband. You’re his wife. Clearly, your loyalty is to him. His should be to you.

Steffy: It is. Make no mistake, liam. Finn knows exactly where I stand when it comes to sheila.

Deacon: You’re not gonna faint again, are you?

Hope: Ah-ha-ha-ha. No, it’s just, uh… still a little jarring to just see you standing here, next to my dad.

Sheila: Well, how are things going? How is everything?

Hope: Uh, it’s, uh, taking a minute. But, uh, I am starting to realize that this is all real, so.

Sheila: I, uh… you know, I’ve– I’ve got some errands to go run. I think I’ll give the two of you a– a chance to talk. And hope, it was lovely seeing you again.

Deacon: See you. It’s still a little weird, right?

Hope: Uh-huh.

Deacon: Yeah.

Hope: Yeah, it’s like, uh, nothing ever happened?

Deacon: Yeah, but actually, something did happen. Something incredible. Hope, you know how much I love you. You and the kids, you– you mean the world to me. But so does sheila. Which is why I wanted you to know that…

Hope: Know what?

Deacon: I asked sheila to marry me. We’re engaged. I’ll be honest.

Poppy: You’re right, brooke. What happened that night was a terrible mistake. Luna didn’t know that she had my mints and what they would do. She didn’t know what was happening to her. I’m not saying that zende violated her in any way.

Brooke: No, no, zende wouldn’t do that. But what he did do, betray my son, not asking luna why she was there in his bed, that is unforgivable. He knew how in love they were. He knew that they went to eric’s wedding together. And now your poor daughter is walking around guilt-stricken. And it wasn’t even her fault.

Poppy: I agree. 100%.

Brooke: But how could you do this? How, how could you be so careless? Everything would be fine if it weren’t for you and your damn mints. You drugged your own daughter.

Luna: You are just the sweetest, most understanding man ever. I feel so lucky right now.

Rj: Me too.

Luna: I thought I ruined everything and that it’d never be like this again.

Rj: I just– I just wanna forget about that night.

Luna: Me too. And it feels like we finally can. Um, I know that we literally just said that we weren’t gonna talk about that night, but, um, I have to say that I do know that you told your mom about it.

Rj: Oh, god. How?

Luna: Well, she actually came to me. And she was really concerned and maternal, and… it was really moving. But, um, I gotta ask, are you sure that she won’t talk to your dad and granddad about it?

Rj: I swore her to secrecy. I told her that I wanted to keep this quiet. For you.

Luna: You’re so good to me.

Rj: Hey, listen. I wanna move on from this. Okay? And, you know, our mothers know, and that’s it. It happened. It’s over. It’s done. We’re gonna move on from this together.

Liam: It’s crazy finn’s doing it again. Again! He’s trying to convince you to embrace sheila.

Steffy: I won’T. Ever.

Liam: No, I know that. I mean, and he’s gotta know that this is gonna cause conflict in your marriage.

Steffy: Sheila already caused so much pain. I told finn, I gave him an ultimatum. It’s either sheila or me.

Liam: Yeah, good. And obviously he chose you.

Steffy: Of course he did.

Liam: Well, I hope he stays true to it.

Hope: Ah! Um, wow. Okay, so you and– and sheila are engaged?

Deacon: Yeah, I didn’t wanna hide it from you. I don’t wanna hide it from anyone. Honey, you’ve got to understand, I thought I lost her. Now, I’ve got all the time in the world, and I– I don’t wanna be apart from her ever again. Sheila and I are gonna be married. Soon. We know that life is fleeting. It’s short. You can’t wait for your happiness. You want that for me, don’t you? I mean, you wanna see a smile on your old man’s face, right? The only thing that will make me happier than marrying sheila is to have you at the wedding.

We live our lives

on our home’s fabrics.

Brooke: Your drug habit nearly destroyed a happy and healthy relationship. You made your own daughter–

Poppy: You will never know the depth of how horrible I feel. I already feel guilty enough, and I really don’t need you adding to my shame. And for the record, I don’t take them anymore.

Brooke: Good. But that doesn’t fix the lives that you already turned upside-down.

Rj: Why are you crying?

Luna: I don’t know. I’m just… happy and relieved. I was so scared that, you know, we weren’t gonna be able to get past it, so, now that we’re actually moving on, I’m, like, a mess. [ Laughs ]

Rj: No, hey. You’re beautiful. When I look at you, all I see is love.

Luna: And that’s all I feel. I’m 100% in love with you, rj. And so committed to you. And only you.

Steffy: Liam, I really appreciate you always looking out for me, kelly, and hayes.

Liam: But that’s your husband’s job.

Steffy: Hey, I’ll take all the support I can get.

Liam: I mean, I’ve got plenty to give, but I kind of think that’s beside the point.

Steffy: You don’t have to worry about finn.

Liam: Yeah, I know, I know. Sorry you had to take a hard line. I’m sorry it came to that. You shouldn’t have to use an ultimatum to get your husband to step up. The fact is, you and the kids are finn’s family, not sheila.

Steffy: Finn knows that. I’m confident that I got through to him.

Hope: Ohh. So you want me to be at your wedding to sheila?

Deacon: I’m not trying to put you on the spot, but you were at the memorial.

Hope: I was there for you.

Deacon: I need you to be there again.

Hope: Well, this is a little different.

Deacon: Damn right it’s different. Come on, a wedding is– is the most important, greatest thing in a person’s life, and I want my daughter to be a part of it. I mean, I don’t know. Would mean a lot to sheila, too.

Hope: Oh, because that’s a great selling point.

Deacon: Well, I mean, she feels the same way about finn.

Hope: Wait, she wants finn to be at the wedding?

Deacon: I know what you’re gonna say. You’re gonna say that we’re being completely unrealistic, that a couple days ago, everyone thought she was dead. But today, she’s very much alive, and soon she’s gonna be mrs. Deacon sharpe.

Hope: Ha-ha-ha… yeah, it’s pretty unbelievable.

Deacon: Well, hey, you know, who’s to say we can’t have a second miracle?

Hope: How many more miracles do you want? I mean, dad, sheila’s alive. You found her in a warehouse. Why can’t that be enough?

Deacon: No, no! When you’re feeling lucky, you gotta, you know, let it ride. Go for broke, kid. Which is why, um, I’m hoping that you and finn won’t just attend…

Hope: Oh, dad…

Deacon: Think about it. Just think how great it would be if you were actually in the wedding. You could be sheila’s maid of honor. Finn could be my best man.

Hope: You cannot be seri– you want me to stand up for sheila at the wedding?

Deacon: I want my beautiful, extremely persuasive daughter to talk to finn and convince him to stand up for me. Sheila and I would be just– it would mean so much to us to have our kids at the altar.

Steffy: Finn heard me loud and clear. Sheila will never be part of finn’s life ever again.

Oh, this is, this is so, this is beautiful, baby, what’s going on?

Did I miss a date?

Uh, it has been non stop. I’m telling you, between patients and administrative work, and problems with our internet, so our telemedicine appointments are all messed up, and uh, I’m just glad that I was able to get away. Oh, sweetness, I’ll take any time I can get with you. I’m really sorry all the staff shortages have been wearing you down so much.

Yeah, it’s been tough, but I can handle it. Yeah. Yeah. I’ll just be happy when new docs show up, you know? Speaking of which, have you talked to Chip? I have. He’s, he’s doing great. So is Wendy. That’s awesome. And how are you doing? I’m happy he’s happy. I’m still missing him a lot though. Yeah, me too. What about you and John?

How are things going with you guys? Fine. You know, I really don’t think these one syllable answers are gonna work for me today, okay? Sorry, baby, that’s all I got right now. Okay. What about, how are things going with Constantine? Well, still don’t trust him, never have, never will. Well, he hasn’t given you any reason to.

Looks like a duck and quacks like a duck. I really can’t believe that Maggie is actually going to marry that man. Listen, you don’t have to worry about Maggie. She’ll be just fine. You sound awfully sure of yourself. What’s going on? Hey, Jada. Hey, guys. Hi. Come on. Grab a chair. Join us.

Hey Doc, what’s going on? You sounded kind of worried on the phone. I am. Alright, talk to me. I got an update from Brady. Looks like Maggie is redistributing Victor’s wealth just to make sure that all of his dependents get their inheritance. Oh, Maggie, Maggie, Maggie. I’m sure Constantine is losing his mind.

I have no doubt. Alright, so what are your concerns? Well, Constantine is a very dangerous man. I’m afraid that Maggie has put herself in a rather dangerous place. Wow,

huh? That’s a lot of beautiful things to choose from. Well, the very easy thing to remember about me is, I like all things sparkly. Perhaps an engagement ring for the happy couple.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

An engagement ring? Yeah, could have sworn I heard that too. Why not? Two lovely people who obviously enjoy each other’s company, and I would say make a fantastically enjoyable looking couple. Would you not agree? We could even make it a double wedding. Oh, I’m sure that Alex and Teresa have their own plans, whatever they may be.

I apologize to you both. Constantine tends to get carried away. Yeah, seems that way. Speaking of plans, aren’t you supposed to be at the office, Alex? I mean, the prep meeting? Yes, for the McGill acquisition. With all due respect, Maggie, my calendar is none of your concern, but since you asked, my VP has it covered.

Efficient leaders know how to delegate. Well, strong leaders need to be present. Titan’s a well oiled machine, thanks in large part to my tenure. Okay, well, when you’re done patting yourself on the back, perhaps one of us should get to work. I guess that’s gonna be me. I’ll text you on my way home. Thanks, Mike.

Look, nobody wants to upset Constantine, but I’m afraid that Maggie moving Victor’s money around could be kicking the hornet’s nest. Yeah, yeah, she’s, um, she’s rattling his cage a little bit here, but look, Doc. The Kiriakis estate? Massive. Millions and millions and millions of dollars are gonna be left over even after Maggie does her generous gifting.

I certainly think that’s gonna make Cosetteen behave himself for a while. I hope you’re right. Yeah. Me too. But just to cover all of our bases. Why don’t we make sure Maggie doesn’t have anything else she needs to tell us, okay?

Come on, now. Take a seat. Catch us up. Not even for just a couple of minutes. Come on. Okay, fine. I will do that. So, I bet it’s nice to live in an actual house, isn’t it? Oh, yes, it is. I mean, it is beautiful. It’s definitely an improvement from the small room overlooking a parking lot. Yeah. I bet, huh? Yeah, and Rafe is a great guy.

I actually look forward to coming home. I can’t tell you how nice that is. I can imagine. Wow. That’s great. Um, well, Stephanie told us that, um, Everett signed the divorce paper. Ah, he did. And I’m pretty sure your daughter had something to do with making that happen. Well, that wouldn’t surprise me. Yeah. I am.

I am. I mean, it is like a dark cloud has been lifted. The only thing is, uh What? Well, I know that Stephanie is currently, you know, working on her relationship with Everett and trying to make it work. I just, I just hope that he doesn’t break her heart. You know, like he did mine.

Games. You don’t gotta ask me twice. In fact, I, uh, I have a couple of games we could play. And? Mm hmm. Um, they would require a change of venue, however. Like the bedroom? Soon. Well, the timing’s right. Timing? Victoria’s just about to wake up. Oh my god, yes, you’re right. I can’t believe I forgot. The afternoon bottle is upon us.

Okay, I’ll go make it. Not yet. But I thought you just We have games to play soon. Okay, what games? Hearts? Hearts the card game. Yeah, that’s exactly what I mean.

Wow! Gosh, I haven’t played this since I was a little girl. I don’t think I even remember the rules. Oh, I wouldn’t worry about that. It’ll all come back to you, it’s just like falling off a bike. Come on, let’s get started. What’s this? This is the Queen of Hearts. Because you’re my queen, and you’ve captured my heart.

I’d like to think so. And the note? Read it. Read it.

You’ve captured my heart. Now check out the art. The art. In here? Baby, what’s going on? Isn’t it obvious? You’re on a scavenger hunt. And I’m going to have so much fun watching you try and figure it all out. Xander. You’re doing great. You’re totally on the road to finding the treasure. Treasure? What treasure?

You want to give away the best part? Yeah, maybe a head. No, you’re on your own, kiddo. Huh. It’s not jewels, is it? Precious stones. Of the family variety. Well, you’re a dirty girl, aren’t you? Yeah. Well, maybe I should give you a pat down. Seducing me isn’t gonna help. But what if I beg? It won’t matter. You’re not getting any of this until you find what I’ve hidden.

Look, if I’m overstepping, just No, no, no, you’re not. Listen, we appreciate your concern, really, but be assured That if Everett gets out of line or hurts Stephanie, that Papa Bear over here is definitely gonna have a lot to say about it. Yeah, that’s right. Yeah. And if he ever does anything that you don’t like, you come to Papa Bear too.

Okay? Well, I think he will be keeping his distance from me. But, Thank you for being so caring. Well, you know how much your dad meant to me. He was a dear friend. I think he’d be very upset with me if I didn’t look out for his baby girl. Thank you. You know, you guys are like family to me. I just wish we saw you more.

And I wish I saw you guys too. You know, I’m so sorry I keep dropping the ball on making plans. It’s just that lately, I feel like I am just being pulled in a million different directions. I So how’s the search for Clyde Weston going?

Now, Constantine, what are you still doing here? Okay, Alex, let’s be civil. Oh. What? No, no, it is an excellent question. I have no reason to linger. I shall be on my way. All right. You know what, Constantine, wait a second. There’s one thing I did want to discuss with you. Please, go ahead. So, I recently just purchased a racehorse.

There’s a good chance that it’s gonna get delivered before I get back to the mansion and officially move in. Could you just let the stable master know? Has Maggie been made aware of your relocation plans? Well, I would assume that she knows I’m moving back in given that half of everything was left to me now.

Put on to a more practical note, I’m thinking about taking over the East Wing. That’s not where your room is, is it? I mean, I’d hate to have you relocate, though I do have plans of further discussing your continued occupancy at the Kiriakos Mansion with Maggie as soon as I see her again. If your idea is for me to vacate I’m sure he would meet with, uh, strenuous objections from my soon to be wife.

Yeah, well, I’m just saying you probably shouldn’t get too comfortable there, Constantine. Let’s just leave it at that. Okay, okay, fellas. Let’s just take a step back. Maybe take some deep breaths. Yeah, because, you know, this conversation is really pointless without Maggie being here. It is her house, after all.

Well, not quite. It’s actually our house. As is half of the estate and half of Victor’s fortune. Yeah.

And on that note, any idea when the Horton’s are moving out? Here you go. Oh, thank you very much. Thanks for coming over so quickly. Well, it’s not a problem. Um, I was on my way to work. However, uh, I can only stay a little while. Yeah. So what’s going on? Mostly we wanted to thank you. For what? Brady told us that you have redistributed Victor’s estate.

And that will allow him to set up a trust for Rachel and Tate. Just like Xander did for Victoria. Well, um, it’s not my generosity, it’s just, it was me carrying out what I know would be Victor’s wishes. He wanted to make sure his children and his grandchildren were cared for. And I had a I had already decided to share my wealth before I knew what Constantine was up to.

Um, Did I do something wrong? I mean, if this is a problem. No, no, no, no. No, we just wanted to circle back here and talk about next steps. With Constantine. We need to get him to commit a crime. Something that we can actually collar him on. Right. Mm hmm. I was gonna call you later, actually, but you beat me to the punch.

You see, um, it came to me earlier today. It came to you? An idea. In my not so humble opinion, a brilliant idea. Yes. I know exactly how to bring Konstantin down for good.

Okay, so let’s, uh, let’s hear this brilliant plan of yours. Well, it’s all about Alex. Ever since, uh, Victor’s will has been settled, Alex, he’s been hyper focused on spending money. Extravagantly, to put it mildly. Recklessly. Neglecting his role in the stewardship of Titan. Almost completely. Now normally, I wouldn’t let this behavior slide.

But it occurred to me that it might provide us with the perfect opportunity. To get rid of Constantine permanently. All right, go on. Well, it seems like Alex is uninterested in minding the store. So the company money could be so easily moved under the radar. With a little finesse and a little technical know how, we could make it look like Well, like my darling fiancé has been embezzling from Titan for months.

It wouldn’t be difficult to transfer funds to a personal account. One that I had opened on his behalf. So if we did it right, and we did it cleverly So the idea is to expose Constantine for the low life that he really is. Mm hmm. Leave that to me. To answer your question, the Horton House renovation is almost complete.

Right. I’m sure you’re breathing a huge sigh of relief, right? Now that, you know, the mansion’s probably getting a little bit crowded, no? I’ve actually enjoyed having the cordons around. Hopefully I will enjoy being with you just as much. Yeah, well, I wouldn’t count on that. Anyway, I’m going to finish shopping for this lovely lady.

Oh, you stay right here. I’ll be right back. Big surprise. Ooh. Engagement

ring? Honestly, you actually said that out loud? Reza, calm down. Alex didn’t know I knew what the first ring, huh? All he heard was an old man waxing romantic. Well, quit your waxing, will you? He gets all jittery when you bring up the whole proposal thing. Haven’t you been working on that, huh? If not, what the hell have you been doing?

Plenty. I’ve got myself back in his bed, haven’t I? Now I just need to get myself back into the mansion. Huh. As far as tracking down Weston and his accomplice, we recently came into possession of a new piece of evidence. What’s that? Well, we got our hands on Weston’s black book detailing every part of his drug operation.

Wow. That is big news. Yeah, Stefan DiMera brought it in. He found it hidden at the bistro. But the only problem is it’s written in a code and we are so far from figuring that out. Well, that’s something John and I could definitely help out with. Yeah, you could ticket the ISA, right? Absolutely. And if anyone can correct that code, it’s them.

Okay, game on! I’m rooting for you, Sarah. You said art.

Well, it can’t be any of these, because you hung them. It’s not on the walls. Keep trying. You think I already gave up? Oh, sounds like little Miss Sunshine just woke up. I didn’t hear anything. Oh, you should, uh, pop these in some water. I’ll go get our little angel. But baby, this, this isn’t for flowers. This is just Art.

Look inside.

Seems like someone is more interested in Mr. Turtle than eating, although she did mention that I should ask you that question again. Properly.

Sarah Horton. I love you with all my heart. You’ve made my life better in so many ways. In fact, the only thing that could improve what we have now is knowing that I get to spend the rest of my life with you. So, will

you marry me?

Oh, Sandra, I’m I’m so sorry, I can’t accept this.

I appreciate the offer, Steve. But Harris has already taken the paperwork to the Naval Intel for analysis. But, I’m gonna talk to Rafe. And the more eyes we can get on this, the better. Well, we all want the same thing. Weston behind bars again. Right. And this little book is going to help us solve a few cases.

Something else to do with Weston? No, the murder of Lee Shin. I, I thought that Gabby was in prison for that. Well, Gabby always said that she was innocent, and Rafe is very sure of that. Are you saying Weston was involved in that? I can’t say anything right now, but this book, it can lead to a lot of closure for all of us.

Okay. Wow. Well, Maggie, um. On paper, it sounds like a hell of a plan. I thought you would like it. The more I flesh it out, the more I’m convinced that it’ll work. Hmm. Now we just need to plant the seed. Oh, I suspect that Constantine will be salivating over the favor that I’m about to ask him. And, uh, I know who to call.

If I get into any trouble. So, wish me luck. I think you’re doing just fine so far. Bye bye. Bye. Hmm. Well, I wasn’t quite sure, but Let me get into thinking Maggie might be able to pull this off. I have no doubt. I think that Constantine is messing with a raw redhead. That’s a fact. And soon he will be out of our life.

Out of all of our lives. Forgot it.

You talk a good game, Teresa, but I need to see some action, and soon. Time is The essence, yeah, I know, I know. You just make sure that you hold up your end of the bargain, okay? Yes. Okay. Well, as much as I have enjoyed being with this lovely lady, now that you’ve returned, I have some errands to attend to.

Well, don’t let us hold you up. I shall be on my way. All right.

God, is he unsufferable. Well, he’s marrying Maggie, so get used to it. I can’t believe she’s hanging out with that loser, much less marrying the guy. I don’t know. I mean, I guess that’s just what happens when you’re lonely and needy. I don’t know. Anyway, I’m gonna see what I got you. Um, yes.

Wow. Alex, this is, this is amazing. I thought you were gonna just get me like a little bobble or something. Well, do you like it? It’s spectacular. My God, first the watch and now this? I wish that there was something that I could do for you. I’ve got a few ideas. Really? Oh.


You know, getting this, uh, this Constantine issue under control here makes me feel like you’re not. Might be a light at the end of the tunnel. I agree. Just getting Constantine out of Maggie’s life. Doing that, you must feel good. Damn right.

You know, I’m the reason he’s here in Salem. And the way he has been lying to Maggie. And taking advantage of her generosity and most likely planning to kill her. All of that is on me. Just another cross to blur.

So Weston’s book is the key. If he knows you have it, he’ll come out of hiding. That’s the expectation, yeah. Just gotta get word to him that it’s been found. Right. So you’ll let me know if anything else happens with the case, you’ll keep me in the loop? As much as I can. I mean, it’s personal to us, to our family.

Yes, I know that. That monster killed Abigail. He almost killed Tripp and Wendy. He’s hurt so many people we love. That bastard needs to be stopped once and for all.

I’m not sure I understand. Are you saying no? No, no, no. No, baby. Not to you. Just, the ring. Honey, I can’t wear that. What? Why not? It’s ethically sourced. If that’s what What your problem is? I mean, it’s a one of a kind design. And I, and I appreciate that. I really do. It’s just It’s too much. Oh, darling, don’t sweat the cost.

No, no. What was Maggie’s reallocation of Victor’s estate? I was able to not only set up a trust for our daughter Yes, but that’s where the money should be spent. And that’s why you’re listed as trustee, so you can manage Victoria’s Trust. I mean, that’s why I wanted to make things official. We are a family now.

I just wanted to make sure that you had the best ring money could buy. You, you deserve it. I don’t need the best ring. I don’t need the best anything. I already have the best. I have you.

I’m sorry. Last time. So

you’re saying yes? Is that by any chance a yes? What I’m saying is, you, Xander Cook, are the best. And I agree that, and I am gonna steal your words here, the only way that this could be any better would be knowing that we get to spend the rest of our lives together. And honey, I’m so sorry if I came off as a name grade.

I am so touched and I really do appreciate that you spent so much time shopping for such a beautiful ring. And oh my god, the way that you proposed was just so sweet. Does that mean that you will just keep the ring and not feel guilty about having it and wearing it, please? I will. And I’ll, I’ll try my hardest to get over the guilt.

Well, surely you’d feel a lot more guilty if you made me take it back. I mean, after all the hours I spent at the jewelry store, making that poor salesperson show me hundreds and hundreds of rings, until finally I saw this one and thought, Yeah, that’s the one for my Sarah.

If you’re gonna put it like that. Can we have a redo? Like, will you get back down on your knee and show me the ring, and then say all the beautiful corny things that you said that made my heart melt, just like the whole nine yards. Yeah, we can totally replay all of that. Yeah. And I promise that I will be gracious, and I will be grateful, and I won’t have any objections or complaint.

You’ll see. Okay. Okay. Here we go. Xander proposes to Sarah, take two. And action. And action.

My precious Sarah. I love you with just my whole heart and soul.

Mother of our daughter, best friend, staunchest supporter. Well, staunchest supporter when I’m being a decent human being. Which is what I know I’ll be from this moment on. Because having you in my life has given me so much to aspire to. I want to be the man you deserve. And the father, Vittoria deserves.

That’s my goal. My other goal is to make you happy, and feel safe and secure in my love. And to put a smile on your face at least, um, a hundred or so times a day, and a few times at night as well. You’re everything to me, Sarah. And I just I, I, oh I can’t believe I haven’t gone to the proposal party. No, no, no, there’s no rush.

Okay, well I am ready.

Sarah Horton, love of my life, will

you marry me?

Sander Cook, love of my life. I will definitely marry you and I cannot wait to be your wife. Well, in that case, um, Please allow me. It looks like we’re engaged now. FiancĂ©. No question about it. FiancĂ©.

Okay, let’s make this Sunday dinner happen, okay? We want to have you and Rafe over. That sounds so wonderful. I’m gonna check my calendar and I will text you. Great. Okay. Hope it’s soon. It will be. Okay, honey, take care. Aw, take care, guys. Thank you. Yeah. Right. What? I can see those wheels turning. Yeah, baby, those wheels are turning.

That new piece of evidence is big news. How could any of us rest easy? Until Clyde Weston is back in his cage. Well, we can’t. So maybe that’ll give you something else to focus on, besides Constantine. Sweetness, you know that I can work on more than one thing at a time. So Constantine is still on the docket.

That doesn’t change. But you still haven’t told me what’s going on. Why? Sweetness, I promise you, when the time is right, I’ll tell you everything. I just hope it all works out. It has to. There’s no other option.

Insolent swine! You’ll get yours soon enough, Alex. You will. Who are you talking to? Oh! Myself. Old habit. Well, we all do it. I thought you were going to work. I did. I went to work. And I was there, I had something of an epiphany. And it brought me back to you. Oh, I see. Hmm. Tell me about your epiphany, Maggie.

Well, I hate to impose, but I do have a favor. Um, and, and, and you’re the only one who I think could handle it. Anything, my dear, anything. Well, um, as you know, um, I intend to create a charitable trust in Victor’s honor. Right. And since you knew him for most of your life, you more than anyone else knew what was in his heart.

Right. So, I would like to put you in charge of distributing the funds to the causes that meant the most to Victor. That is if you’re willing. It would be my honor to do this for you and Victor. Oh, oh Maggie, dear Maggie, thank you for entrusting me with such a, a noble venture.

Alright, listen to me.

I’m gonna say this one more time. And hopefully then you will come to believe it. None of what you did back then was about you. That wasn’t John Black. But what, what you’re doing now, the way that you’re helping Maggie, is an example of your, your kindness and your strength. And if that’s not an example of the quality of your character, I don’t know what is.

That’s all I want to be, Doc. Just a force for good.

And with you by my side. I know for a fact that anything is possible.

You know what? I think I’m kind of crazy about you, Alex K. Um,

Actually, I’m waiting for you to say something back, like, Oh, I don’t know, I’m so crazy about you too, Teresa. Or, you are so insanely beautiful and irresistible, Teresa. You are irresistible, but I’m a fan of, you know, the opinion that actions speak louder than words. And I think, with all the action just now, I should have told you something.

Mm hmm. Mm hmm. Yeah. Yeah. Okay.

I’m gonna go hop in the shower. And then, um, should we order in? Sure. Why not? Okay. Alex K. Mm.

Hey, Kristen.

I miss you, too. Hopefully tomorrow. Yeah. I can’t wait.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Daniel: Oh! Uh-oh. I’d, uh, say hello, but, uh, are we allowed to even have a conversation without our lawyers present?

Abby: You know, that’s funny, but there’s probably a little bit of truth to that, too.

Daniel: Yeah. We’ve known each other forever, huh?

Abby: Yeah.

Daniel: Who would’ve thought that the two of us would wind up on opposite sides of a lawsuit?

Abby: Mm.

Daniel: And I hope you know that I don’t hold any of this against you. I mean, how could I? We’ve always had each other’s back. I just– I’ve been trying to figure out if anybody else on the board voted against this little lawsuit. You know, I– I don’t know how billy would have voted. I can’t be sure what jill was thinking.

Abby: Daniel, I, um…

Daniel: Oh, you know what? I– I’m sorry. I’m not trying to put you on the spot. I’m not gonna try and get inside information out of you. Unless this is maybe one of those little safe gray areas. No, look, I– I’ll be honest. Knowing that someone over at chancellor-winters is on my side, that– that means a lot.

Abby: You know, daniel, you’re right. We have been friends for a long time. And I can’t lie to you.

Audra: What makes you so optimistic that your relationship with devon will be repaired if you do him this favor?

Tucker: I’m not completely, but it seems like the door has been cracked a little.

Audra: But don’t you think it’s strangely out of character for devon to make a deal like that? And all you would have to do is get billy out of chancellor-winters. Devon’s been so adamant about keeping you out of his life, and suddenly, there’s an opening.

Tucker: Yeah. He didn’t go so far as to actually broker the deal with me, but…

Audra: Okay. Now, the truth comes out. You could help devon with billy and wind up getting nothing. Tucker, no. Please.

Tucker: Remember, audra, I am a master at risk analysis.

Audra: Did devon ever actually ask for your help?

Tucker: He is clearly at odds with billy. So much so that he’s willing to do something underhanded to get him out. In which case he’s come to the right guy, ’cause obviously my specialty is underhanded.

Devon: So, if we pull this off, we can stop billy’s sudden rise to power, but we have to do it fast before he causes any damage.

Nate: Sounds good. Count me in.

Devon: Lily, I know you’re a lot closer to jill.

Lily: No, I’m in. I have been very loyal to jill, and this is a complete betrayal, so we have to respond accordingly.

Nate: You do realize she’s going to explode when we do this, right?

Devon: I don’t care. She dropped a bomb on us, and we’re gonna return the favor.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Daniel: Okay, so you can’t lie to me, I can’t lie to you. Yeah, that’s kind of how a friendship works. You’re talking about something specific though, aren’t you?

Abby: It’s about chancellor-winters.

Daniel: Right, I figured.

Abby: Look, I can’t tell you what happened in the board meeting except for one thing, and I thought that you should hear it from me.

Daniel: Okay.

Abby: When the board voted to settle the lawsuit with you or fight it in court, I voted to fight.

Daniel: Oh. To fight me?

Abby: Oh, uh… to fight for chancellor-winters’ intellectual property, not to fight you per se.

Daniel: Not me per se, that– that’s good. Thank you. So, some of the board members wanted to settle. I mean, they were willing to offer some kind of deal to make this whole thing go away. And if that deal was good enough, and I was willing to take it, then I could be getting on with my life instead of gearing up to go to court?

Abby: Look, like I said, I can’t talk about what happened in the meeting. I just– I didn’t want there to be any misunderstandings.

Daniel: Well, that’s– that’s good. Yeah, we wouldn’t want any misunderstandings, you know. You wouldn’t want me doing anything stupid like thanking you for having my back.

Abby: Daniel, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you. I– I had to put my personal feelings aside.

Daniel: Even after years of friendship? All of that, to just put it aside?

Abby: I had to do what was best for the company.

Daniel: Yeah, I keep hearing that, had to do what’s best for the company. God knows they’d never survive without my games, right?

Abby: Well, that’s why I was put on the board.

Daniel: Devon put you on the board, right?

Abby: For my own merits.

Daniel: Maybe he put you there to vote exactly the way he wanted you to vote. You know, to– to hell with morality and years of friendship, or what’s decent.

Abby: Actually, everyone voted to put me on the board, so I could help support chancellor-winter’s financial stability and their status in the marketplace. How devon feels, it doesn’t enter my mind when I vote.

Daniel: Yeah, but how could you think that it was right to vote against me?

Abby: Look, I have to get back to the office. If you would like to discuss this further, just let me know.

Audra: Well, I can’t argue with that. You can absolutely do underhanded with the best of them. But do you honestly think devon will respond well to you getting blackmail material on billy or whatever else you’re planning?

Tucker: Yes, I do. He desperately needs my help, whether he wants to admit it or not.

Audra: Well, I don’t like to see you let down. You deserve better. But I also don’t wanna argue about this because I have exciting news to share.

Tucker: I guess you do. What is it?

Audra: I managed to move our flight up. So, since we are packed and ready to go, we can leave for the airport now. You can deal with this whole billy situation when you’re back.

Tucker: Yeah, audra, I think when we’re back, it’s gonna be too late for the billy situation, so if you could just let me handle this right now, I’ll be yours. All yours, after.

Audra: Now. Are you serious? You’re canceling our trip? Again?

Phyllis: Ah, oh, no. No, blegh. No, mm-hmm.

Daniel: Not a fan of what you were listening to?

Phyllis: Oh, ah, I am not. I was just having a great morning, and then I was listening to some music, and– and a song of your dad’s came on. Ow, my ears. Not a fan. Ow, not a fan at all.

Nate: Looks like everything’s all set. I hope this goes off without a hitch.

Abby: Hi. I’m here, what’s going on?

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Hi.

Devon: How you doing? Listen, I’m sorry to spring this on you right now, but we didn’t have time to waste, and we had to call for a board meeting.

Abby: Wait, a board meeting?

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: But billy’s not here. He’s out visiting other offices, according to the email he sent out.

Devon: I know. That’s the point.

Abby: Okay, I don’t think I like where this is headed. Do you really think it’s fair to pull off whatever this is behind his back?

Devon: No, because billy was given power behind our backs. So, this is on them. We’re just trying to fix it, and we’re going to have a vote.

Abby: Wait, a vote? What is this about?

Jill: Oh, for god’s sake. What now? When did I call leaffilter?

Tucker: Let’s just take a beat.

Audra: No, I– I am sick and tired of being runner-up to everyone else. People that don’t even care about you!

Tucker: You are not runner-up to anyone else! We can still take our trip. I just have to do this one thing quickly first, okay?

Audra: First? First as something or someone else always comes first. Look, you already canceled our trip once when you wanted to stay and save ashley from herself. And don’t even give me that pathetic excuse that the business partners weren’t available the first time. We could’ve gone without the damn meetings. We could’ve taken an actual vacation anywhere in the world.

Tucker: Yes, and we can still take it.

Audra: When? You said that last time and I am still waiting. You just can’t do that for me, can you? For all I know, devon is just a cover story. Maybe this is just all about ashley.

Tucker: I have an opportunity. Listen to me. I have an opportunity to prove myself to him. Do you expect me to blow that? If you knew me at all, if you care about me at all, you would not.

Lily: Welcome, jill.

Devon: Thanks for joining us on such short notice.

Nate: Well, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll leave you to it. Nice to see you, jill.

Jill: All right. What’s going on here? Why are we calling this secret last minute meeting?

Abby: I’d like to know that as well. I am as much in the dark as you are.

Jill: Lily, I thought I explained this all to you when we spoke. I gave billy my complete authority and my voting rights so I could step back. And yet here you are, calling a meeting without him. This is exactly the kind of situation that I was wanting to avoid.

Lily: You made yourself very clear, but this is an emergency and we can’t reach billy.

Jill: Well, of course you can’t, because you know full well he’s traveling.

Devon: Jill, if you recall, we entered into this merger between my company and your company in good faith and a full partnership, correct?

Jill: Yep, devon. We all know how we got here. What is your point?

Devon: The point is, you brought chancellor industries to the deal. And the key word there is you. Lily and I signed an agreement with you and not with billy abbott. So, in light of that, I’d like to make a motion to clearly define billy’s power within the company. He does not get veto power or unilateral decisions. And we expect all decisions and ideas to pass through lily and myself first. And if it’s a no from us, it’s a no across the board. And this is all happening because billy is not you and he never will be you, jill.

Phyllis: I don’t know, I just think it’s kind of disgusting that your dad is touring with christine all over the world. I just think it’s gross. I just don’t understand it. I mean, why he would pick christine over having a real adult relationship with a real woman?

Daniel: I think that dad and christine seem quite happy and I think that their relationship is very mature and very adult.

Phyllis: Oh, really? Oh, okay. So, are you paying attention? Because it’s obvious that they’re trying to go after some sparkly version of the past. I think your dad is actually losing his mind. What’s going on with you? I’m talking disparagingly about your dad and you’re not doing it. What is going on with you?

So tell me about

your heart attack.

Phyllis: Why are you laughing right now? Are you mocking me?

Daniel: No, no, no. I’m not– maybe. I don’t know. Maybe a little. Yeah. Yeah, it’s– it’s– it’s just amazing how self-absorbed and involved you are. Anytime that my life is just falling apart, I can just– I can count on you to be you. That’s for damn sure.

Phyllis: Are– are you upset?

Daniel: A little, yeah. No. I don’t– I don’t know. Maybe I’m just a little numb because of everything that’s going on right now. Let me ask you something. Am I a jerk? Do you think that I’m a jerk?

Phyllis: What? No. Don’t be ridiculous.

Daniel: I’m asking you, not as my mother. I want your honest opinion here.

Phyllis: Uh, why are you asking me something like that?

Daniel: Well that, I don’t know. I just seem to be managing to infuriate everybody that’s around me recently. I pissed lily off so bad that she fired me. You know, she– she took away the games that I created, won’t give them back. She knows how much they mean to me. She knows that one of them basically saved my life. That’s how bad I pissed her off.

Phyllis: Okay, listen, listen. I know lily is upset right now, but that is not your fault. It’s not your fault you were following your heart. And I– I think– I think lily’s gonna to come around. I really do.

Daniel: Okay. What about abby? Hm? I just found out that my long-time friend voted against me. You know against a possible settlement and a lawsuit that I’m involved in. Why would she do that? Why would she turn on me? When did I become the person that everybody wants to hate?

Audra: Because I don’t wanna be overlooked by you means i must not care about you enough. Get real. You have that backwards.

Tucker: Hey, I didn’t ask devon to come to me with this now when we’re about to go to paris. And believe me, if I felt i could put it off, I would.

Audra: Yeah.

Tucker: Yes, I would. But you know what I saw in his eyes, audra? I saw– I saw a look of intense urgency. He needs my help right now. He’s in trouble right now. And if I help him out, there’s a chance, just a– a chance, that he will let me back into his life. Into my grandson’s life. And you know how important that is to me. They are the only family I have.

Audra: There it is. I am not family to you.

Tucker: Oh, god, you know what I mean.

Audra: No, what we have isn’t as meaningful as your connection to people who say they want nothing to do with you. Why? You know, if I accepted your proposal, you’d consider me family then, wouldn’t you? So, this is just you punishing me.

Tucker: No!

Audra: If I don’t bow to your commands, you can’t be bothered–

Tucker: Bow to my commands?

Audra: Showing me an ounce of respect. Tucker, I am tired of this!

Tucker: Hey.

Audra: I– I’m done with your little game.

Tucker: This is not a game. This is no game to me. Do you know what? Hey. Do you know what he says to me every time, every time I see him? “You cannot be trusted, tucker. You are a pathological liar, tucker. You– you– you only think of yourself, tucker.” And no, this is not the scenario that I dreamed of that might bring us back together, but it is a chance. It’s a shot at having a future with him.

Audra: And what about our future? We plan and plan and plan, and when it comes down to it, you cancel because you can’t keep your word. And it is time you ask yourself why.

Tucker: I just–

Audra: No, you know what? I’ll tell you. Deep down inside, you don’t want this.

Tucker: That’s not true.

Audra: You don’t want us.

Tucker: No, I don’t want us because I want to salvage my relationship with my son?

Audra: If you don’t want to go to paris with me, I will go without you!

Tucker: Come on. Audra.

Jill: I cannot believe the two of you. You do realize that this is nothing less than an ambush, don’t you?

Devon: We’re just following your lead, jill.

Abby: You could’ve at least given me a heads up.

Devon: I know, I’m sorry. We didn’t have time.

Jill: That you two would try to pull a number on billy and me like this is outrageous.

Lily: This is not against you, jill. This is what is fair. If billy has voting power, his votes and vetoes should not override ours. When you and I brought this partnership into play with hamilton-winters, it was on equal footing. And now with billy involved, the balance has shifted. So, we should all have equal voices.

Jill: Right. Equal. Meanwhile, you and devon have already made up your little voting block. This move practically neutralizes billy and anything he would put forward.

Lily: I wanted to discuss billy’s role and boundaries in the meeting the other day. But the meeting got side-tracked and we never got back on track.

Jill: So, you decided not to bring it up until this very moment, huh?

Devon: Jill, billy’s barely been back here and he’s already causing instability in the company. We’re spending more time in these board meetings than focusing on the work that we have at hand. And we need to get back on solid ground.

Jill: And this is the way to do it, you think, devon? By stripping billy of all his power and in effect stripping me of mine?

Devon: No, you stripped yourself of that power when you handed it to billy without telling anybody. And this is us trying to rectify it. So, let’s have this vote.

Jill: Why are we even bothering to take a vote? We all know how it’s gonna turn out. It’ll be devon and lily against jill and billy. And there’s no doubt which way abby’s gonna vote. So, are we done here? Because I wanna call my lawyer and figure out a way to fight this.

Abby: Jill, there’s no need to call your lawyers.

Jill: Abby, if you think I’m just gonna roll over and accept this ambush, you’ve got another thing coming.

Abby: No need for that either. Because I’m voting with you and billy.

At dot’s an ordinary pretzel

just isn’t enough.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue… this way and do not try the wise choice, abby.

Jill: Thank you for making the wise choice, abby. And lily and devon. Nice try, but I’m afraid you’re stuck with billy. And do not try this again. There will be no more board votes without billy present. I’m sorry you both feel this way, but this is the way I want it. So, make it work.

Devon: That’s great.

Lily: Well, I guess I should’ve voted for nate to join the board.

Abby: You know what? I’m sorry, lily. And now I know what it feels like to have no warning about a consequential decision.

Devon: Babe, I’m sorry that I sprung it on you, but why would you vote against me?

Abby: Why did you just think I would automatically vote with you? You didn’t even discuss it with me first. You took my vote for granted.

Devon: I didn’t mean to take your vote for granted, but I thought you understood the situation and you agreed that billy’s power needed to be neutralized.

Abby: Okay, even if I did agree with you, it doesn’t mean that I think your solution would meet that goal. I did what I thought was right.

Devon: How could anybody think that billy being forced down our throats is right?

Abby: You know, my whole life, I have been forced to choose between the people that I love. Between the newmans and the abbotts. Between family members on the same side. The last person that I thought would put me in this position is you.

Audra: Sally.

Sally: Shouldn’t you be on your way to the airport?

Audra: Whiskey. Neat.

Sally: Uh oh. What happened? You look upset.

Audra: Well, the fact that tucker is a complete jackass might have something to do with it.

Sally: Oh, god. What happened?

Audra: Oh, you know, nothing new. Just tucker’s chosen to put someone else’s concerns ahead of mine.

Sally: Ashley?

Audra: No, this time it’s devon. Tucker’s chosen to take on some doomed mission for his son instead of honoring his promise to me.

Sally: Okay, hold on. Walk me through what happened.

Audra: We were all ready to go to paris, but no. This entitled egomaniac just managed to wriggle out of it once again, claiming some opportunity to get back in devon’s good graces. Does he honestly think he can put everyone else first and I’ll just stick around? I am not some toy to be played with. I will not be treated this way and I will not stand for it anymore. What? Can’t you see what a thoughtless bastard tucker’s being?

Sally: As your friend, I get your frustration. But this time, I can kind of see tucker’s point of view.

Phyllis: You’re questioning yourself because of something abby did?

Daniel: Well, I consider her a friend, a good friend.

Phyllis: She’s not a friend.

Daniel: She is.

Phyllis: No, she’s not. She is a newman and an abbott. She’s a spoiled little rich girl who’s never had to really work like the rest of us. And who was she raised by? Victor and ashley. Who pounded into her brain that family comes first. The family business will always come first.

Daniel: And that’s gonna take precedence over supporting me?

Phyllis: Okay. Yes. Yes. As for lily, she’s gonna come around. She’s not the type of person to hold a grudge.

Daniel: Yeah, I don’t know if it’s that simple. I can’t just sit back and wait for lily to come around. This is bigger than that.

Phyllis: How’s it bigger than that?

Daniel: I don’t know what I am gonna do if I can’t get my games back. I mean, I have built my life around them. I moved back to genoa city thinking that I could start over here with people I loved. And with people that I thought loved me. But, you know, everything just– it– it feels different.

Phyllis: Hey, no, it’s not different. Everybody loves you.

Daniel: No, come on. And I barely see kevin anymore. I love being with heather and lucy, but we live in the same building as my ex. You know, and– and our breakup, it has definitely affected them. It’s definitely alienated them and isolated them. And something is just off there, and I don’t know what it is. I can’t put my finger on it, but I can’t fix it either.

Phyllis: Listen, listen, listen. You need to calm down. It’s a rough patch right now. And you’re gonna go home. You’re going to see your daughter, and she’s gonna tell you about her day. And then the three of you, maybe you’ll watch a movie or something. Something you like to do. And you’re gonna realize that you have a good life.

Daniel: Yeah. Yeah. Maybe you’re right. But maybe, I don’t know, what if this is as good as it gets for me? And I just have to accept the fact that I got to try and start my career from scratch and now my ex, she owns the game that pretty much helped me put my life back together. Yeah. Just accept that, right?

Phyllis: No, I never said you had to accept it.

Daniel: You know what? I think maybe I just need to get out of here. I need to go and I need to get my mind off this. I’ll go paint. Or I’ll sketch. Or, I don’t know, maybe I’ll try and come up with a new game. That would be good, right? That would show everyone. I don’t know. Just something to make me feel normal. Something to make me realize that this too will pass, right?

Phyllis: Hey, it will pass. It will pass. I want you to believe in yourself.

Daniel: It’s okay, it’s okay. You’re so talented, daniel.

Tucker: What happened to the good old days when kids actually listened to their parents. If advanced lung cancer

Phyllis: I never listened to my parents. I doubt you did either.

Tucker: Yeah, you’re probably right. Hey, I realized that normally we, uh, nice. We trade insults. But I could really use a parent-to-parent bonding moment right now. Go ahead.

Phyllis: List– I just wanna be honest with you. If that’s what you want, I don’t think I’m your person.

Tucker: Okay. It’s just, trying to reconnect with devon. He’s so preoccupied with work.

Phyllis: Is he? Ah, wow. Well, he’s probably trying to find a replacement for my genius son that he unceremoniously fired.

Tucker: Oh, that’s right. I forgot you work with chancellor-winters now. And daniel was fired? I didn’t know that. You know, it’s really too bad he didn’t take me up on my offer to market his video games. He’d be sitting pretty right now.

Phyllis: Okay, that wasn’t an option and you know it. You know, I believe in billy. I think that billy is going to convince the powers that be to rehire my son.

Tucker: Really?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: Billy has that much influence?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Jill transferred all of her corporate power to him. So lily and devon, they don’t get to do what they please anymore.

Devon: Look, you’re absolutely right, okay? I shouldn’t have just put you in the middle of it. We were running out of time. And, you know, that’s not even an excuse. I should’ve taken the time and I should’ve talked to you. I’m sorry.

Abby: Thank you for seeing my point. But you and lily should know that I did have legitimate reasons for voting against you.

Lily: Okay, well, let’s hear it.

Abby: There is enough tension in this company. And putting handcuffs on billy is only gonna create more. And denying jill autonomy in her own role is a fire starter.

Devon: Yeah, but she lit the match when she gave billy her power without telling us.

Abby: Jill brought chancellor into this partnership. A more established and, quite frankly, better endowed entity. You and lily have clearly benefited from the deal. So putting limits on billy only puts limits on jill. I mean, is that really how you want to treat your partner?

Devon: I mean, lily and i considered all those things before we went ahead with the plan and we thought it made the most sense.

Lily: Yeah, I mean, this would’ve definitely been the easiest way to deal with it, but I guess that’s not really an option. Maybe there’s a silver lining to this motion not passing.

Devon: What would that be?

Lily: Well, I think weakening billy’s power might’ve made him more dangerous.

Audra: I can’t believe you’re siding with tucker.

Sally: No, ultimately, I am always on your side. I’m just saying that I can also see where tucker is coming from. And I’m saying that to you out of support and friendship so you don’t always feel like an afterthought in his life.

Audra: Except I am, sally.

Sally: Totally separate is that he is desperate to reconnect with his son and grandson. And this does seem like a potential golden opportunity.

Audra: Yeah, okay, maybe. But this isn’t the first time he’s canceled on me at the last minute.

Sally: Yes, maybe. But this seems different. Look, when I was little, my parents basically ignored me. I would give anything for them to spend more time with me. I’m actually a little jealous of devon that he’s got a devoted parent who wants to go out on a limb and show how much he cares.

Audra: Well, I think devoted is kind of a stretch for tucker. But I know what you’re saying. Look, I’ve had my share of family sob stories. But that’s still no excuse for how tucker treats me.

Sally: He loves you, audra. And he has faith in your feelings for him. That is not him taking you for granted. That’s trust.

Audra: Yeah, but it’s being shoved aside because he just assumes I’ll stick around. You know, devon’s cut him out of his life because he is sick of tucker’s methods always crossing the line. Methods tucker will continue to use, claiming that it’s on devon’s behalf. And he’s just willing to throw away everything he has with me just to make things even worse with his son.

Sally: But you don’t know that for sure.

Audra: But I know tucker and I know how he operates. This thing is destined for disaster. And mind you, all of this is happening right after he already canceled my trip for ashley.

Sally: I still think you might be conflating the two situations.

Audra: And why shouldn’t I? Tucker has always taken me for granted. Everyone else always comes first. And I don’t know why. Does he think that I’m just less important or– or more forgiving? Or maybe he just assumes that I am desperate, but I am not having it.

Sally: Okay, so what– what are you gonna do?

Audra: You know, maybe I’ll use our trip reservations, go to paris, and turn the glissade board of directors against him and convince them to appoint me as his replacement. That seems like a great idea.

Sally: You’d actually go there?

Audra: Well, it wouldn’t be the first time I consider taking his company away from him. You know, tucker thinks he has all the power in this relationship. But I refuse to live with that. I won’t live with that. I am done.

You’re the one that I want!

[ Knocks on door ]

Abby: Hey, do you have a second?

Lily: Uh, sure. Come on in.

Abby: I just– I wanted to make sure you understood the reason why I voted the way I did.

Lily: I do. I appreciate you bringing your own perspective, even if we disagree.

Abby: Well, I wish everyone felt that way. And no, I’m not referring to devon.

Lily: Who are you talking about?

Abby: Daniel. I ran into him and I told him I voted against settling the lawsuit with him.

Lily: Okay, um, I’m sure that was hard, but you shouldn’t discuss board business with people outside of the board, especially someone that we’re in a legal battle with.

Abby: I understand, but i only told him the way I voted, nothing more.

Lily: Yeah, but, uh, it’s still confidential, so you probably shouldn’t share that information. But anyway, I’ll, um, I’ll share something with you.

Abby: Okay.

Lily: Uh, daniel came here and was pleading his case again. And I don’t know, it kind of got to me. I know there’s gonna be a lot of bad publicity following this trial, which is something that we definitely should avoid.

Abby: Yeah, it could get pretty ugly before it’s all over with.

Lily: Yeah, so I’m trying to find a way that we can maybe have some middle ground and avoid this whole legal battle.

Abby: Like what?

Lily: Um, I don’t know, maybe we do give him one of the games and we keep a portion of the revenue. Maybe he’s an outside consultant and, you know, he can make a cut of the profits. Given that the platform is performing really well right now, it’s a pretty good deal.

Abby: Yeah, that sounds like a very fair compromise. We have enough to deal with the way everything’s blowing up right now.

Lily: And no doubt, it’s only gonna get worse from here.

Nate: Uh, hello, ladies.

Sally: Nate, good to see you.

Nate: You as well, sally. Uh, look, I hate to interrupt your conversation, but do you mind if I steal audra away for a minute?

Sally: Not a problem. I actually have to run anyway. Good luck.

Audra: Thank you. So, uh, how much of that did you hear?

Nate: Enough to know that I’m not surprised. I tried to warn you that tucker couldn’t be trusted. He’ll always put himself and his own interests first, audra.

Audra: Okay, yeah.

Nate: You, not so much.

Audra: The last thing that I need right now is your I told you so speech, or the implication that I’m a sucker because you just wanna make yourself feel better, so…

Nate: That’s not my intention at all, okay? You are one of the sharpest people I know, audra. So, what do you plan to do now?

Audra: Well, I’m deciding whether to use our reservations to fly off to paris without tucker.

Nate: I have a much better idea. Why don’t you skip the trip? Stay. Have dinner with me.

Tucker: That’s really surprising. So, jill has essentially handed over power of the company to billy. Huh. And I’m sure he’s wielding his newfound power all over the place.

Phyllis: All over the country.

Tucker: What do you mean?

Phyllis: He’s on a national tour right now promoting chancellor-winter’s divisions.

Tucker: No fooling.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm.

Tucker: Uh, excuse me a second.

Devon: Hi, can I get a small decaf? Thanks.

Tucker: Hey, um, billy is out of town. So, it’s the perfect time to deal with him. We could circumvent any trouble he’s planning to cause with jill’s share of the company.

Devon: How do you know that billy’s out of town? That’s not public information.

Tucker: Well, you know me. I always have my ear to the ground.

Devon: Ear to the ground. Hang on a second. Hey, phyllis.

Phyllis: Hey.

Devon: How you doing?

Phyllis: Great.

Devon: Good. Did you just happen to tell tucker about billy’s new position and him going out of town?

Phyllis: Excuse me?

Devon: Where’d you find out about that?

Phyllis: Uh, from billy.

Devon: From billy? And you just decided to violate your confidentiality clause?

Phyllis: Yep, I did.

Devon: Wow.

Phyllis: Yeah, and since we’re breaking rules here, I might as well tell you I’m very disturbed that you fired the head of my division. Not only that, to add insult to injury really, you stole his creations. Who does that?

Devon: It’s funny you should bring that up, actually, ’cause I was wondering how you would even want to still work at the company.

Phyllis: Yeah, I was wondering, too. Uh, let me cut to the chase. I’ll save you the trouble. I quit. You don’t have to fire me.

Devon: Really?

Phyllis: Your business, by the way, is toxic.

Devon: That’s good to know. And I accept your resignation. Thank you for making my job a lot easier.

Joke. I said, is the coast clear? If, by that, you mean, “are gloria and carmine on their way to the church?” That is precisely what I mean. Then, yes. I sent them with a flower arrangement so they would feel like they were doing something. Good. I am very glad to have some time alone with you. Uh-oh. Am I in trouble? No. No.

[ Exhales sharply ] You are a very good father. A-a wonderful father. Thank you?

[ Laughs ] Is it — is it that unusual that I give you a compliment? Uh, you just caught me by surprise. That’s all. Clearly. Thank you. For saying so. I haven’t always been perfect. But I do try. And it shows. The upcoming nuptials have me thinking about all of the milestones that I missed, and the most glaring of them, of course, was your wedding to lois. I’m so sorry I wasn’t there. It was my loss. I’m glad you’re here now. Me too.

[ Ned chuckles ] Place looks great! Yeah? Yeah. Not as great as the owner, but… co-owner. Looking pretty good yourself, as always. Thank you. Everything set? God, I hope so. I am just so over-the-moon happy for brook lynn and chase. They’re — they’re great together. The best. The best. And I know tracy’s picking up the tab for the reception, but this is my hotel, so my gift to the happy couple is everything’s got to go off without a hitch. The guest book is in place. Excellent. I cannot believe their wedding day’s finally here. Has anyone talked to brook lynn? She texted me earlier. She is getting ready with her mom. Aunt #1: Dante! Ohh. Speaking of the cerullo side of the family. Aw, jordan! Your dress is absolutely beautiful. Oh, thank you. Yours is gorgeous, too. So, I stopped by drew’s office at aurora media the other day. Now, I don’t want to spread any rumors, but I understand there might be an announcement for a new division? I can either confirm or deny. Well, just in case. Congratulations.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, okay. You can tell me. When are you drew gonna make the big announcement? Well, we want to build anticipation, so we can just let the rumors start flying. You’re gonna be great. With you by my side, how could I be anything else? Well…

[ Chuckles ] So, how am I looking? Yeah. Uh… you look pretty good. High praise. Thanks. Isn’t part of my best-man duties to prop you up, no matter what? Maybe you should brush up on your propping techniques. Don’t listen to your brother. You look extremely handsome. Violet: I agree! Well, thank you both so much, but I don’t think it’s gonna matter that much ’cause all eyes are gonna be on my gorgeous bride. Lois: I don’t think anyone has ever been more beautiful. Ma, we haven’t even finished my hair yet. Ohh! Oh, I’m talking about the glow. You are literally radiating happiness. And it makes my heart want to burst. I am happy, ma. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, and I owe it all to chase. No. No. You owe

some of it to chase. Come here. Come on. I want you to look in the mirror. And I want you to say “thank you” to yourself for knowing what you wanted, for waiting until you found it, and to fight, to hold onto it when things got rough. Because here you are — on the brink of forever with the man you love. Can you believe it? I’m getting married today!

[ Laughs ] Yes, you are. Let’s get you ready! Okay.

[ Both chuckle ]

[ Cellphone ringing ]

You look beautiful! Aww! We do, don’t we? Aww. Oh, I was talking about me and the baby. Oh. But you look great, too.

[ Chuckles ] Thanks. Hey! Welcome to the, uh, wedding of this century — or so maxie tells us. How are you guys? Good! Good. No complaints. This is crazy ’cause I remember the first time I met you I was getting an autograph for rocco, and now here are you dating my little sister. Little sister who is getting bigger and bigger by the minute. Dante: Yeah. Where’s my hug, by the way? It’s right here. Huh?

[ Kristina chuckles ] Hey. Dex. Didn’t know you’d be here. Chase invited me. Well, welcome. Thank you. Hi, sam. Hi, michael. Michael: Hey. New recruit. Commissioner. Oh, uh, brook lynn wanted everyone to sign the guest book. Oh. Want to do that? Yeah. Okay. See you inside. Incoming. What? Mikey! Michael: Hey, patty! Was last night not so much fun? Yeah, it was — it was fun. Don’t forget. You said you’d save me a dance. I did. I did. Um… I got to go find my wife. I’ll be…back. What did he say? I — just… I-I don’t know. But he is a good dancer. I’m glad there’s so many people from the old neighborhood here. You’re only saying that ’cause you don’t know any of them. No, I’m serious. It’s really important that dad sees these friends who aren’t just ava jerome. Wait. You don’t think he’s inviting ava, do you? Josslyn: Hi! Hi. Bride’s side or groom’s side? Uh, neither. That is, uh… the bride is my cousin. Oh. Ah. Giovanni palmieri. Josslyn jacks. Hi. Hi. Nice to meet you. Uh, you don’t want to sit with your family? Oh, no, I have no problem sitting with them, but… I’m here to play. Oh. Another musical cerullo. Kind of the family business. That and, uh, fixing cars. Cool. Uh, well, I can show you where to set up. Thanks. Uh, you know if sonny corinthos is gonna be here today? That looks better, doesn’t it? Well, it kind of looks like it did before. I mean… don’t make fun of me! Who’s making fun? You’re making fun of me! Ahh… and what are you doing not at the church already anyway? I’m picking up my plus-one. Really? Yep. Do tell. Natalia: Hi!

[ Laughs ] Olivia quartermaine, this is natalia ramirez. Hi. How do you do, natalia? Nice to meet you.Nice to meet you, too. You know blaze? Of course. That’s her mother.

[ Gasps ] Guilty. Oh! Your daughter is so incredibly talented. Thank you. And she and kristina makes such a beautiful couple. They seem happy. They do. Uh, well, you know what? I hate to cut this short, but I got to run. The — the party’s not gonna throw itself, right? Nice to meet you. Really nice to meet you. Nice to meet you, too. Thank you.

[ Exhales sharply ] Are you ready? I am ready. Yes.

[ Laughs ] And if I didn’t mention it earlier, thank you so much again for including me. Yeah. Lois: You always had the most beautiful hair as a toddler. Yeah, well, there were times you never would have known it with some of the hairstyles he gave me. All those styles were cutting-edge. Yeah. If you say so.

[ Sighs ] Ma, I’m sorry! No! I loved all my haircuts! No. No, no, no. It’s not that. It’s — then what? This is the last time I’m gonna be doing your hair like this. Ma, you can come over whenever you want. You know how much I hate blow-drying my hair. No, I mean, you know, like this, like — like you’re all mine, you know? After today, you’re gonna be a married lady. Yeah, but I’ll still have hair.

[ Laughs ] God. It’s always the wise cracks with you. But I made you laugh, though, didn’t I? Yeah. You did.

[ Both laugh ] How’s your dad doing today? My dad? He, um… he seems good. Upbeat. He says he’s buoyed by the adrenaline of the wedding. “Seems”? I’m worr iedhe wouldn’t tell us if he wasn’t up for officiating. Yeah. ‘Cause this means so much to him. Yeah. You know, I want more than anything for it to work out for my dad and for chase. But, you know, his — his stamina hasn’t been good the last few days, and I don’t know if my dad physically can make it through the ceremony.

Hey, chase, you want to go check on dad? We probably should get going soon. Yeah, I’m on it. Yeah? Hey. Hey are we good? All set. Okay. See you at the church. See you at the church.

[ Exhales heavily ] Is the famous flower girl in our mist? That’s me! You look absolutely stunning! Thank you! And you look debbie downer, grandpa. I’m sorry? I-I-I think she means “debonair.” That’s what I said.

[ Laughter ] Elizabeth:

Very debonair. And I have the final touch. Precious greetings, commissioner. Hey, spinelli. How are you doing? Uh, you just arriving or in need of a breather, as they say? Well, taking a breather. Not — not in need of one. We ll, it’s — it’sa beautiful day for it. Yes. It is. Are you waiting for someone or…? Uh, just… gathering courage. For? Maxie invited me as her date, which I’m clearly delighted about. Oh, but you’re a little nervous? More than a little. Which seems silly ’cause we were almost married once upon a time. Oh. No. I-I can understand that. It’S… you can? Yeah. I-I mean, it’s like you and maxie are rediscovering each other. And, uh, that can be scary. Could also be fun and exciting. “All the feels,” as georgie would put it. Right! Exactly. All the feels. Yeah. You’re maxie’s godmother. And as such, I… I want you to know that… my intentions are nothing but honorable. I have no doubt. Happy wedding day. Oh, back atcha. You look very nice. Thank you. I don’t mean to interrupt if you’re in the middle of… texting somebody. Ah. I’m just checking work e-mails. Is that terrible? Why would that be terrible? I don’t know. I feel like I should be focused on love and fun and not government business. You can be focused on anything you want. You hear solo? Free as a bird. What do you think about these two birds sitting together? So you’re saying you want to join my flock. Do I, uh, pass muster? You’ll do. Whoa. Shame on me. What’d you do? Uh, I haven’t told you how great you look. Thank you. And you look very handsome.

[ Laughs ] Is that a friend of yours or…? An ex-employee who… violated my trust. Shall we? Yes, we shall. Anna. Hi. Hi, sonny. Uh, I want to introduce you to natalia. This is the police commissioner of port charles. Hi, anna. Or should i call you commissioner? Oh, no, no. I’m off the clock. No. Very nice to meet you. Nice to meet you. Have fun. Yeah. You too. Are you ready to go back inside? Yeah. Sure. Oh, my god. Look.

[ Exhales heavily ] Perfect. Are you sure? Ma! Again, with the tears! What?! I can’t help it! Remember when you were trying on wedding dresses and I said it’s like a snapshot? Well, this is another one. You… you’re all grown up, about to walk down the aisle. Ma, are you sad that I’m getting married? Sad? No! Nostalgic for your childhood? Yes. Insanely proud of the beautiful, accomplished woman you’ve become? Absolutely. But never sad. No. I mean, I’m so happy for you. I’m happy for all of us. You said that before. Well, I mean it! Brook lynn. Being your mother… has been the best thing that ever happened to me. And I’ve… I’ve loved every second of it.

Every second? Well… yeah. Every second. I’m so lucky. I’m lucky, too, ma. And, yes, I am marrying chase this afternoon, and hopefully someday we will start a family of our own. Oh, well… okay. But just for the record, I will always need my mom. You promise? Promise.

Ah. Mummy. Hi! Can I talk to you for a quick sec? Sure. See you in a bit. What are you doing? What do you mean? Really, dad? You just showed up with my girlfriend’s mother on your arm. It’s not what you think. Okay. What am I thinking? Well, I mean, natalia wanted to come. I had a plus-one. I brought her. It’S… why are you — why are you upset? Are you kidding me? Just be…charming. I’m always charming, honey. Not, but, like, extra charming. Like, amp it up a little. I could use all the help I could get. Are you surprised to see me? Ha! I shouldn’t be. You always get what you want. Honey, you should hope so because I only want the best for my baby girl. And hopefully someday you’ll see that. Mommy. Alli. I told you I was coming here with christina. You did. And now I’m here, too. But, isn’t that great? Because now we can all celebrate this beautiful event together. Congratulations, ned. Thank you. Thank you, curtis. Thanks for coming. Thank you for coming, portia. Portia: Oh…

[ Organ playing ] Thinking about

our wedding? It was the most incredible day. Until it wasn’T. Yet, here we are over a year later. We made it, baby. Yeah. And I’m — I’m grateful. I just — I don’t know what I would have done if I lost you. You’re never gonna have to find out. Stress levels — on a scale of one to ten? Surprisingly, not off the charts. I would say a solid six. Six? Six. That’s impressive. Everything is done at the metro court. At least it better be. How about you? Well, I got what I needed from finn. Yeah? We’re gonna remember this day forever, ned. Yes, we will. What? Something else happen? What? I had a moment with my mother. Okay. A good moment or a tracy moment? It was surprisingly good. I think her relationship with brook lynn has affected her for the better. Yeah? My mother is much more open with her feelings these days. You see that? It’s the power of love.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Knock on door ] Come in. Hi, granny! Uh, well, um, I guess you get to call me that with my blessing. Today, and today only, the bride makes the rules. You look stunning. I got nothing on you.

[ Chuckles ] Nerves? No. I feel surprisingly peaceful. That’s not surprising. It’s not? No. Because you believe in yourself. You believe in your instincts, your…convictions. It’s one of the things I admire most about you. I didn’t know you admired anything about me. Well, I do. And I’m unbelievably happy for you. Took me a long time to find luke, the man that I loved. And I’m thrilled you found chase so early on and he sees all of you. Loves me in spite of it. No, brook lynn. He loves you

because of it. You, my darling granddaughter… …are just spectacular inside and out. Wow. I don’t even know what to say. Thank you, granny. Ohh. Well, you said I could! I know! I’m regretting it already! 85th time’s the charm?

[ Chuckles ] Cut me some slack. It’s been a while since I’ve been up in front of a crowd. You’re gonna do great, dad. All those years lecturing college students, a wedding should be a walk in the park. It’s not just a wedding. It’s — [ Grunts ] My son’s wedding. I-I don’t want to let chase down. You could never. The car is here. Oh. Well, that’s our cue. Are the ladies ready? I was ready yesterday, daddy. Yesterday? You’ve been demanding a wedding date for months, as I recall. Then I was ready months ago! Ah, I appreciate the accuracy.

[ Door closes ] So much build-up. Now it’s finally here. How do you feel? I’m excited. But weirdly calm at the same time. The perfect combination. Can I give you some advice? Please. Try to take it all in. The sights, the sounds, the smell of the flowers, especially, though, the — the feelings of joy and hope because that’s what all of us out in the church are gonna be experiencing. Try to take a mental picture that you can keep with you forever. I know I will. Thanks, dad. And not just for the tip, but for being the best dad a kid could ask for. You made it easy, harrison. No, I really mean it. Growing up, I was always surrounded by love and support. And I know that not everyone can say that. I love you so much, dad. I love you, too, son. Now… let’s get you hitched!

[ Chuckles ]

What you got there? Oh! It’s for you.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Gasps ] It’s beautiful. It was your great-grandmother’S. This was lila’s? I have cherished it for years.

[ Gasps ] Now it is…yours. Ohh! I’m honored. You’re a lot like her, you know? In what way? Well, you see… the glass half-full. My mother was like that. Not that she avoided reality. She looked at reality and still saw reason to hope, to see the best in people. That is not a quality that I possess, but my mother did, and… …so do you, brook lynn. And while you have been and will continue to be, I’m sure, a colossal pain in the ass… right back atcha. …I adore you. Beyond measure. I love you. I’m so grateful for you in my life. I’m so grateful, too. Have no fear. I will take copious pictures of the bride and her gown. And, of course, I’ll tell mom how beautiful she looks. Uh, georgie, I’ll call you back, okay? Love you. At long last, I…

[ Chuckles ] I see you in the flesh. Spinelli.

[ Jason grunts ] The fact that you’re here… my gratitude knows no bounds. Okay. Okay. Ahh… I’m sorry. For what? I mean, this is the first time I’ve seen you. I wanted to reach out, but things have been so… just complicated. I didn’t want you involved. No. No. I suspected as much. Welcome home, jason. Thank you. -Hey. -Sonny: Hey. You’re look sharp, old man! Good to see you. Uh, natalia, this is dante. He’s my son. Hi. Hey. Nice to meet you, natalia. So nice to meet you. Yeah. Alright. Alright. Cool. I, uh — you guys good finding seats? I got to go take care of some stuff. Yeah, yeah, you — we’ll see you later then. Alright. Alright. Dante: See ya. Good to meet you. Nice to meet you. Hey, dad. We got to — we got to find a seat.

[ Organ playing ] I should probably explain. Only if you want to. That’s my other son, michael. And you’re not close? We used to be. He disappointed me deeply. I understand. My kids have sometimes disappointed me, too. I-I should go straight in, conserve my energy. I’ll come with you. You want to check out the decorations in the church? Yeah! Yes! Come on. How are those sweaty feet doing? I’ll have you know my feet are the perfect temperature. Big day, bro. One of the biggest. I’m honored to be standing by your side for it. Thanks for standing up for me. Means a lot. There’s nowhere I’d rather be.

Hi. -Thank you. -You’re welcome. Hey! Hey, leo!

[ Chuckles ] So, where is brook lynn? She’s doing her finishing touches with maxie. Ahh. You didn’t want to go with her? Of course, I did! But she said that I was, um — what — what was it? What? Your vibe was making her nervous. Ahh, those pesky vibes of ours. Right. But how is she doing? Oh, she’s perfect. She — she’s the picture of calm. On her wedding day! Now, that is impressive. Yeah. And that’s exactly why we know it’s right. Our brook lynn has found her happily ever after.

[ Laughter ] Ohh! There you are. Where have you been? I was at the house getting ready. You were supposed to be taking notes for me at the rehearsal. What are my cues? When do I stand? I — how do I make the day perfect for chase and brook lynn? You being here makes it perfect.

[ Chuckles ] That’s — that’s nice and all, but I was hoping for some detailed instructions. You don’t — have nothing for me? I got nothin’ ’cause there is nothing. Just say what you’ve written, speak from the heart. That, I can do. Jason. Monica asked me to come. It’s wonderful you can make it. Brook lynn’s almost ready, so we should probably take our seats. Michael: Good idea. You are the most handsome father of the bride ever. I love you. I love you, too. And my escort’s not so shabby either, huh? No, he isn’t! Looking good.

[ Laughs ] Come on, sweetie.

[ Exhales deeply ] Hoo. Can you believe it? No. No. You know… you think about this day when you have a child, right, especially if that child is your daughter. And it just — it seems so far away, like it’s never gonna happen. Look at us now. I’m tellin’ you. Brook lynn, she — oh, she takes my breath away. I mean, she is so smart and so beautiful and so poised, and she is hilarious. She’s a lot like her mother that way. Oh, well, you’re no slouch, either. I made a lot of mistakes with brook lynn. Hm. We both did. But there has to be

some things we did right. The proof is in the pudding, my friend. Um, please tell me you did not just refer to the bride as pudding. Oh, no. You had to be there. Are we all clear? Yeah. Ned: Just us. You can come in now.

[ Gasps ] Ohh. Don’t cry. I just touched up my mascara. Ohh! Are you kidding me? It’s gonna be niagara falls in there! What do you think, dad? I think you are a sight to behold. We ll, in that case, let’sget this wedding started. Ohh…

He’s like his mother. He plays like an angel. The rest of your life is about to start. You ready? I’ve never been more ready for anything. I love you, bro. I’m really happy for you. I love you, too. I don’t tell you enough how proud I am of you, brook lynn. You tell me plenty. The woman you’ve become… the story that you’ve already written for yourself. And I can’t wait to see how the rest of it unfolds. Me too. Bet you there’ll be some curveballs, though.

[ Laughs ] No doubt. Ready to give me away? Ohh… I will walk you down that aisle, and I’ll hand you over to the man you love. But I can’t give you away. Because you’ll always be my little girl.

[ “Bridal chorus” plays ] Alright. Here we go. You know it feels like forever since I’ve seen you? I saw you last night. Like I said. Forever. You two let me know when you’re finished, and I’ll get started.

[ Laughter ]

[ Gregory clears throat ] Welcome, family and friends of brook lynn and chase. Um, I know I speak for the bride and groom when I thank you for — for being a part of this —

[ Clears throat ] …This, uh… most special and moment–

[ Groans ] Momentous day.

[ Clears throat ]

[ Clears throat ] We are gathered here today… to… wit– witness and celebrate, uh, the marriage of — of these — these two beautiful…

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Upbeat music ]

Liam: What the hell are you doing?

Deacon: What the hell’s it look like I’m doing? I’m– I’m working.

Liam: You know what I mean, deacon. I’m talking about sheila.

Deacon: Say you’ll marry me. Say you’ll be my wife.

Sheila: So, I said yes. I said yes. Of course, I’m gonna marry you.

[ Knock on door ]

Sheila: Uh, just a minute. Steffy.

Steffy: It’s really you. I was hoping I’d never have to see you again. But here you are. Alive and well.

Rj: You confronted zende.

Brooke: I had to.

Rj: No, you didn’T. Mom, why did you do that?

Brooke: Your cousin slept with your girlfriend. There’s no way I wasn’t gonna say anything.

Rj: Mom, mom, I’m the one handling this. I am. Okay, I understand that you’re upset, but I don’t need you fighting my battles for me. That’s not helping me right now.

Brooke: I had to see what he was going to say for himself. We’re a family. You all work together here.

Rj: I know. That’s why I want to keep this on the down low. This is luna’s private business, and I don’t want people finding out about it. Especially dad.

Ridge: What? What’s going on?

Luna: What if I’m pregnant?

Deacon: You see sheila your way, I’ll see her my way.

Liam: What does that even… this is not like us talking about the same thing from two different angles. You– you have invented this– this imaginary version of sheila. I’m talking about the attempted murderer, the blackmailer, the kidnapper.

Deacon: All right, all right. That’s not all she is.

Liam: It doesn’t have to be all she is if you admit that she’s all of that. And here you are, just like basking in the fact that she’s still around.

Deacon: Why would I rejoice in anyone’s death? Liam, I get that you’re shocked.

Liam: Shocked? Shocked? Shocked. Shocked is an understatement. We were firmly convinced that she was gone. All of us. Especially– especially steffy.

Deacon: Okay, well, look at the bright side. Now steffy doesn’t have to be haunted by the idea that she– she killed her husband’s birth mother.

Liam: Uh…

Sheila: Steffy, I– I wasn’t expecting you, but I’m– I’m glad we’re gonna have a moment to talk.

Steffy: I really thought this nightmare was over.

Sheila: I realize that this isn’t where you want to be right now, standing here looking at my face. And I can only imagine how you felt when you found out that it was sugar you killed and not me. But I hope that you could understand finn’s feelings. He’s relieved I’m not dead. I’m really hoping that you’ll feel that way one day too.

Ridge: What did I walk in on?

Rj: Nothing. We’re good.

Brooke: Rj and I were just having a discussion.

Rj: Hey, how’d grandad’s go? It’s insane sheila’s still alive.

Ridge: Yeah, that is insane. But it almost seems like you’re trying to change the subject. So, what is it? What’s going on? Something I need to know?

Poppy: Hi, sweetie. I got you a matcha latte. And I thought it was your favorite.

Luna: Oh, I can’t right now.

Poppy: Are you okay? Sweetie, what’s wrong? You bought a pregnancy test? Your heart is the beat of life.

Ridge: Listen, I’ve been traveling a lot. I’ve been out of town, lot of meetings, so I’m not on top of things the way I should be. What am I missing?

Rj: No, there’s nothing for you to be worried about.

Ridge: Is that so?

Rj: Well, don’t you think if mom had, like she knew about a life or death situation, like it was a real issue, don’t you think she’d tell you about it?

Ridge: We’re soulmates. She tells me everything.

Rj: So, you know, let’s say that there was a potential situation that didn’t involve either of you and was not a life or death situation. She just doesn’t need to tell you about it, right?

Ridge: Now, I’m even more concerned.

Rj: Great, ’cause that– that was my intention. So, that’s perfect.

Ridge: You know what I’m getting right now? I’m getting teenage rj is in trouble and is running to his mommy. That’s what I’m getting. What?

Brooke: No, no, no. He’s not in trouble. Rj didn’t do anything wrong.

Ridge: Okay. Regardless, I’m getting the feeling that there’s some high tension in here. So, what’s going on? Is it you and luna?

Poppy: A pregnancy test? You think you might be pregnant?

Luna: I don’t know. I’ve been feeling a little tired and sick to my stomach recently.

Poppy: Why haven’t you said anything?

Luna: Because I thought maybe it would pass. Like I caught a bug or something.

Poppy: Well, maybe that’s all it is.

Luna: I mean, that’s what I’m hoping, but I won’t know for sure until I take the test.

Poppy: How long have you been feeling sick?

Luna: A few days.

Poppy: Okay.

Luna: But, um, before you got here, i got super nauseous and I just– I threw up. I’ve never felt this way before. I’m scared I might be pregnant.

Deacon: All right, listen, you have got to admit, though, that this is the craziest twist of fate ever. If I had just listened to the coroners and the cops, what they said, I never would’ve checked her texts, I never would have checked her credit card receipts and finn and I would’ve never pulled her out of that warehouse. And you know what? Sheila really would be dead.

Liam: Oh, all right, columbo. Credit where it’s due. I get it.

Deacon: I’m not gonna be sorry for the fact that she’s still around. I mean, I don’t condone all the things she’s done in her past. She knows that. But I’m not squashing my feelings for her. I mean, I’m– I’m over the moon that she’s still with us. And you know what? Finn is too.

Liam: Okay. See, that– that is gonna be a problem. Because steffy has asked finn for precisely one thing and one thing only. Protect her and the kids. And he can’t do that with sheila around.

Steffy: Finn is confused. His emotions are all over the place.

Sheila: Yeah, but he– he just needs some support right now.

Steffy: Oh, I know exactly what my husband needs. And that is for you to stay away from him.

Sheila: Okay, look, steffy, I know this turn of events–

Steffy: Okay, can you stop this? I know exactly what you’re doing right now. I’m not gonna fall for your manipulations. You need to stay out of my life. We are gonna move on with our life like you never existed.

Sheila: I gave birth to him.

Steffy: I don’t care if you gave birth to finn. He finally made peace with your death. He was finally ready to move on. So, this tie that you have to him, this connection, it’s done. It is over, sheila.

At dot’s an ordinary pretzel

just isn’t enough.

Ridge: I’m right. You were talking about luna. How is she?

Rj: Great. Yeah, she’s just focused on work and stuff.

Ridge: Okay, so you’re gonna avoid like an office romance then?

Rj: Yeah.

Ridge: Yeah, I get it. You know what, ’cause I did that once. I fell for this hot little chemist.

Rj: Okay, all right. That’s my cue to leave. It was great seeing you.

Ridge: We’re not gonna make out now, we’ll wait ’til we get home.

Rj: Oh.

Ridge: You moved out, there’s plenty of room.

Rj: That’s lovely, dad.

Ridge: Okay, well that’s– that’s enough about us. Let’s get back to you and luna. Did your mom give you advice?

Rj: Yeah. Yeah, you could say that.

Ridge: Good. She knows what she’s talking about. Listen to her. And if you need a second opinion, I’m right here.

Poppy: You think you might be pregnant. Have you missed a period?

Luna: I mean, I haven’t been regular lately, but I’ve been so stressed out with the whole zende thing, so…

Poppy: But zende used protection.

Luna: Yeah, he did. He– he assured me.

Poppy: Well, good. And you and rj? I mean, I’m on the pill. Well, sweetie, I doubt that there’s anything for you to be concerned about.

Luna: Yeah, but nothing’s 100%. I mean, you’ve always told me that. Mom, I– I can’t be pregnant right now. There’s a million things I wanna do with my life.

Poppy: What exactly are your symptoms?

Luna: Um, like I’m hungry, but queasy. And the thought of certain foods makes me wanna… oh, my god, mom. This can’t be happening. I can’t do this right now. And you wanna know the worst part? It could be either rj’s or zende’S.

Poppy: Okay, one step at a time, okay? Don’t jump that far ahead.

Luna: I can’t put it off any longer. I need to know if I’m pregnant.

Deacon: Look, man, what do you want me to say? That I’m sorry that sheila’s not six feet under?

Liam: I don’t know, man. Maybe for now, you and finn could keep the happy dance to yourselves, ’cause the rest of us, we’re gonna need a minute.

Deacon: I get it. Look, I know this is a shock, all right? But maybe there’ll be some good that comes out of this.

Liam: For who? Not for steffy. She was tormented by the fact that she killed somebody. But at least she could breathe easy knowing that sheila was out of the picture. The burden sheila was putting on her life was no longer. Or so she thought.

Deacon: Okay, but don’t forget the fact that sheila risked her life to keep sugar from attacking steffy and the kids.

Liam: Okay, a, you heard that from sheila, and you’re just taking her word for it, which… and b, sheila brought sugar into our lives. Sheila is the only reason sugar was there that night. Thank god steffy survived.

Deacon: Apparently, sugar was no match for steffy “the blade” forrester.

Liam: It’s not a joke, man. Steffy killed someone. She has to– she has to live with that for the rest of her life.

Deacon: I’m sorry, you’re right. Look, it was a mess, no doubt about it. I’m just hoping that steffy can keep an open mind. You know, start to change her perspective and see sheila the same way that finn does.

Sheila: Steffy, I’m finn’s mother. You’re a mother yourself.

Steffy: We are nothing alike, sheila. We have zero in common.

Sheila: Look, I’m not saying that we have anything in common, and I am not comparing the way that you parent.

Steffy: I would never shoot my own child.

Sheila: Finn has forgiven me, steffy. He– he’s looking past the mistakes that I’ve made.

Steffy: Finn is a kind, compassionate human being, something you will never be. All you bring is heartache and misery into people’s lives. Absolute misery.

Sheila: And I want to change that. I want to start with that right now, ’cause this new beginning that’s been handed to me.

Steffy: Oh, my god, you are so– so delusional. There’s nothing you could ever do to make up for what you’ve done, so stop with this. Stop with the biological mom card. It’s ridiculous. This sick, twisted tie that you have to finn, it ends. Today. (Vo) dan made progress with his mental health…

Ridge: I’m so proud of you. The work you’re doing here, it’s– it’s amazing. Am I right?

Brooke: Yes. He’s– he’s certainly amazing.

Ridge: Every time I walk down the hall, there’s some person saying, “oh, my god, your son, he’s the greatest.” And they’re right, because look, the work you’re doing with zende on hope for the future, it’s– it’s outstanding. And the team you put together is great. You just– you guys gotta remember, hope for the future is all about community. Got to keep collaborating.

Rj: Yeah, well, I mean, hope’s vision for this line, it’s– it’s amazing. I mean, I feel like anybody that works on this, I mean, it’s going to be a success.

Ridge: Uh-uh. I’ve done this for a long time. It’s hard, really hard to put a good team together. It’s like putting a really good, perfect relationship together.

Brooke: There’s no such thing as a perfect relationship.

Ridge: Are you nuts? Look at us.

Brooke: Oh, yeah?

Ridge: Yeah.

Brooke: If we’re so perfect, why don’t you put a ring on it?

Ridge: See, your mother is perfect for me and maybe luna’s perfect for you. She’s a smart, very determined, beautiful young woman. Maybe there’s a future for the two of you. That’s all I’m saying?

Luna: Oh, my god, I’m freaking out. Please let it be negative, please. Oh my god, please, please, please let it be negative.

Poppy: Sweetheart, I know you’re scared, but precautions were taken, okay? There is a good chance that you are not pregnant.

Luna: No, I am not ready to be a mother right now.

Poppy: No matter what happens, I am here for you. You are not alone. We will handle this together.

Luna: No, right now I am just praying that it’s negative, okay? I want a baby someday, but not for a really long time. Oh, my god, and because of that horrible night with zende, I mean, it might not even be rj’S. Can you imagine what that would do to our relationship? I mean, he literally just forgave me.

Poppy: Well, luna, that’s fantastic. I mean, I knew he would, and he loves you.

Luna: Yes, and I love him too, but if it’s zende’s, there’s– there’s no way that rj’s gonna accept that. I mean, that’d be the end of us. I’d lose him forever.

Poppy: Honey, I understand that you are upset, but you have to breathe. Please, just try and relax.

Luna: Relax? In a few seconds, I’m about to find out if my life’s gonna be turned upside down.

[ Alarm chimes ]

Poppy: It’s ready.

[ Alarm chimes ]

Luna: You have to do it, mom. I can’t do it. Please, just read it.

Luna: What does it say? Is it negative? Is it positive? Am I– am I pregnant?

Sheila: Finn cares for me. He helped save my life.

Steffy: It’s his job, sheila. He’s a doctor.

Sheila: No. No, he thought that he lost me. He thought that he lost his birth mother and that changed him.

Steffy: Oh, my god, you spewed the exact same garbage when you supposedly died before. This is insane. Do you realize that? I gave finn an ultimatum. I said it was either you or me. Guess who he chose? Me. His wife. His son. We will always be his priority, not you.

Sheila: And you should be his priority, but why can’t he have us both? Why– why can’t there be room for me? He wants me in his life, steffy.

Steffy: It’s not gonna happen, sheila. You’re gonna remain dead to us. To me, to finn, and my children. So, don’t you dare try to worm your way into his head and to his heart. You think you really care about him.

Sheila: No, you know, that’s because I do. I’m his mother. He’s my child.

Steffy: No, you don’t, sheila! If you cared about finn, you would leave him alone! You would stop messing with his emotions! My god, I don’t even care about you. You know what? You could live your life and you can live it here with deacon. You just need to stay away from us or you’re gonna answer to me.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Well, thanks again for meeting me here, Ava. Yeah, it’s a good thing that, uh, Wendy and Tripp left me their key while they’re in Hong Kong. But listen, I really do need to get back to the pub soon because I can’t let Roman down. You know, I’ve been kind of living on a high wire without a net since I quit the bistro.

You quit? I wasn’t aware of that. Yeah. That’s for the best. Right. Well, either way, this won’t take long. Okay, good. I assume that Harris has got you up to speed on the lab analysis of Clyde’s black book? Yeah, he briefed me on that, told me that the bloody fingerprint was Gil’s and the actual blood was Lee’s.

Right. So, as of now, the working assumption is that Gil stabbed Lee. The question is why. And the other question is, can you help us prove it?

Hey there, Thomas. Hi, Eric. How’s it going, buddy? Good. My school went testing on Take Your Kid to Work Day, so we’re doing it today instead. Alright. So, does that mean you’re going to be my boss? No. I don’t want to be the boss. I want to be a reporter. Alright. Just like my mom.


What? Are you surprised to see me? Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you’d still be at the Spectator. I’m going back. I just took a break to hopefully see Holly after school. I’m hoping to mend some fences. Is she still around? Um, no, actually. She’s with Sophia, studying. Avoiding me like the plague. After our blowout, and I, I guess I understand.

I do apologize for my role in that. Honey, you have nothing to be sorry for. How could you possibly predict that Holly would fly from our Mother’s Day brunch like a bat out of hell? You were just trying to help. Like you always do.

Alright, what’s the latest? Well, this is a, uh, list of ex associates of Clyde’s. Rafe couldn’t seem to track anybody down, so I’m trying to remember anything I can. Friends, acquaintances, frequented places, anything that would generate a substantial lead. So here is to finding Lee’s real killer. And to Gabby coming home.

Hear, hear. Oh, I know that you love Gabby, Stefan. And for the life of me, I can’t figure out why. But I know the two of you haven’t really had a chance, and so I’m hoping that you have that chance now. Wow. Never took you for a hard bitten romantic, Kristen. Ah, well, underneath this ice cold exterior, I’ve always been one.

Hopelessly so. Just keep that bitch away from me.

Leo. The one and only, except no imitations. I have been looking all over for you. Well, let me know when you find me. You’re drunk. I prefer the term enlightened. You want a nip? Absolutely not. What’s the good stuff? Courtesy of E. J. DiMera’s bank account. Honest question, Leo. Are you out of your freaking mind?

So what’s the plan, huh? You gonna drink yourself into a coma? To sleep perchance to dream, aye, there’s the rub. For in this sleep of death, what dreams may come. Have you just come here to stand in judgment, or do you have something useful to say? Wow, well where do I start? So you lost your one true love.

Get in line, buddy. Welcome to the club. There’s about 7 billion of us. And honestly, was it a true love if he just dumped you right on your ass? Ugh. Cruel much, Miss Cruella DeCalis? Can we just talk about the real issue at hand here? You blew up my life. If anyone hears of this, they’ll be Oh, no, no, no. Don’t you dare, Sloan.

You chose this path, not me. You might as well have just published the truth about Jude in your Lady Whistleblower column. I have been good to you, Sloan. I’ve been loyal. No, you’ve been great, honey. You know, once you just opened your big drunken mouth and just proceeded to jeopardize everything. Leo, my family!

My, my, my marriage, my livelihood! You promised me! I kept my word. I didn’t tell Eric. Oh, but just about everybody else but Eric. Oh, okay. You’re being really dramatic. Beyond the people who already knew, E. J. DiMera is the only one now privy to Jude being Nicole’s dead baby.

Well, it definitely wasn’t the Mother’s Day I was hoping for. I’m so sorry, Nicole. Oh. You know, I’ve made a lot of mistakes with Holly, and even though she’s my biological daughter, Chloe’s the one who carried her, and then there was that horrific custody battle. She was a baby. I know, but you know, I read that even babies can sense trauma, and there was a lot of trauma.

And even when I did get custody, I became a single mother. And you showered Holly with love. Kids can sense that too.

Yeah. I suppose you’re right. Mm hmm. But I still wonder if things would be different if I raised Holly from her first day she was born. And I was really hoping to have that chance with our little boy. But, it’s okay. It wasn’t in the cards for me, so. How can I help you prove anything? I know nothing about Lee’s death.

Nothing. Well, since Wendy and Tripp were in Hong Kong, you were the only person living here in Salem when both Lee and Gil were killed. Maybe you know something without even being aware of it. Yeah, then maybe you should hire a hypnotist. Not a bad idea. Seriously, it would be pointless because I have been doing nothing but thinking about this nonstop ever since Harris told me about that fingerprint.

And I will swear to you, Rayvon, everything that I hold dear, I know just as much as you do. And I really do need to get back to work. Okay, then. Maybe I should come see you tomorrow, or perhaps later, after you’re done at the pub. You’re not gonna let this go, are you? I am not. Not a chance. Okay. You do realize I’m trying to protect myself here.

Because the thought of reliving any of that stuff is I understand, Ava. I understand. I understand that this is really difficult for you. I do. But I really need your help here. Badly.

I’ll do what I can to help.

Well, do you have any ideas of what kind of stories you want to cover? I want to be a crime reporter. He’s writing a paper about the mystery meat they serve in the school cafeteria. That is definitely a crime, big time. I need to take pictures of it, too. If you saw this stuff, you’d barf. Do you have a cell phone camera?

No. Well, if your dad is cool with it, I happen to have a second camera. Really? Yeah. It’s on the desk in the photography room, you know where that is? The one with all the pictures taped all over? That’s the one. Alright, well go on then. Alright, uh, Denny’s gonna meet you in five minutes to show you how to lay out the paper.

Yeah. And Denny can show you how to use the camera. Awesome! I can take some pictures. Yes, you can.

Oh, man. He’s a good kid. He gets it from his mom. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, okay? Gabby’s not even out of prison yet. And let’s not forget, that lead fell into your lap because I found Clyde’s little black book. Oh, I don’t believe this. You are gonna welch on a promise because of a technicality? No, no, no.

I want EJ out of that CEO chair as much as you do. That’s the mission. Plugging you in as CEO and getting him out. But getting Gabby out of Statesville, that is the priority. Getting my wife out of prison.

So in terms of evidence, so far so good. Looks like Gil stabbed Lee. But what was his motive? Yeah, how would I know anything about that? Well, I don’t know. I’m just trying to piece things together here, Ava. Okay, was there any chance that Lee was working with Clyde? No, absolutely not. Well, how can you be so sure?

I mean, unless of course there’s more that you’re not telling me about what Clyde and Gil were doing. Wow. Sounds like I need a lawyer now, huh? No, I’m not interrogating you. Really? Because you could have fooled me. Okay, but you did. You used to run a drug front for your father. Yeah, decades ago. Okay, yeah, so maybe Clyde knew that and he’s capitalizing on your experience.

You know, hypothetically speaking, any number of things are possible doesn’t mean they are. Okay. Yeah, fine, sure. There is one other thing, though, that has been bothering me. You were running a management position at the bistro, and yet, well, you’ve never managed a restaurant. Okay, you know what? We’re done here.

We are done. No, no, no. The thing is, like, why would Stefan take the fall for you? Why would he take the fall for the drug op? You’re the one with the criminal DNA. Okay, you know what? Your accusations are baseless, Ray. Ava! It was happening right below you! Right there! I mean, you’re smarter than that! Come on.

Okay. I just need to understand, okay? Why did Stefan take the fall for you? Was something going on between the two of you? Was he cheating on my sister with you? Please just help me understand. Help me make sense of this.

Okay, tell me the truth. When we got together, did you expect there to be so much drama? I mean, I know you know my past, but now you have to deal with Holly’s attitude and my occasional mood swing. Oh, and I don’t have any mood swings, or the occasional temper tantrum, and you still put up with me, though.

Yes, this is true. Besides, after being with Sammy, this has been an absolute bloody cakewalk, my dear. Oh, I am going to take that as a compliment. You should. Also, I absolutely adore you. And I am so grateful that I get to spend my time with such an extraordinary woman. So sweet. Okay, segue. Um, if, if Holly gets home before me, could you do me a favor?

Of course. Would you let her know that I will be working late tonight? And, um, that I did come by on my break to see her. Mm hmm. And I’ll make sure she has a hearty meal as well. Thank you. Now, could you do a favor for me? Of course. There is a City Hall fundraiser on the horizon, which is gearing up to be a real snooze fest, which these things are.

But, if you could be on my arm when I turn up, it’ll make me look Well put together. Like visiting royalty. Can I count on you? Oh, come on, Mr. DiMera. You know I’m always proud to be on your arm. Yeah. Plus, this is going to be interesting. And a chance to do something good. Your optimism is infectious. Yeah.

And I adore it. Thank you. No, but, but, But seriously, it, it, it’s really sad that there are so many charity programs that are underfunded. So, with me being there, maybe I’ll pick up something from my article on Salem’s Unhoused. Well, it seems you and Eric have really thrown yourself into this. We believe these are stories that need to be told.

Tenacious, intelligent, beautiful. My wife has everything. Now can I have more of your black case? More. More. More. Okay, honey. I don’t want to be late. No. I want more. I have to go. Okay. I will see you later. Alright. Okay. Bye. Abigail, you know, was an amazing

person. Beautiful, kind, and everything else. Yeah, she was pretty damn perfect, wasn’t she? I mean, to me, anyway. I miss that girl. Yeah. You know, with the kids keep me going and um, I mean, there’s a lot of her in them. You know, her light shines through all of us. Thank God. I’m sure she’s smiling down on them.

And you. I’d like to think so. I know so.

You know what? Maybe this was all my fault.

So many things to choose from. I don’t know where to start. No, I’m talking about me leaving you alone at a bar to just drown your sorrows in booze. Oh, that. Yeah. Huge mistake on your part. If I were you, I’d never forgive myself. Out of morbid curiosity, how long after I left did you slip on over to EJ’s to spill your booze soaked guts?

Like, you want a timeline? Uh, let’s see, it was about three minutes and thirty eight seconds after my last martini, but then another twenty eight seconds after I got to that creepy mansion before I spilled my guts. What? I don’t know. I was drunk. I still am. And heartbroken. I wasn’t thinking. Are you ever thinking?

I’m thinking now, and if I’m being honest, something’s not adding up.

I’m sorry. You’re going to what? I’m going to EJ and I’m going to compel him to open Gabby’s case. She’s been locked up long enough. Okay, Stefan. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. I know it’s hard to be patient, but we have to. Now, Rafe said that he was going to go to EJ after he spoke with Ava. Now, let’s just hope that he finds even more evidence that points to Gil as the killer.

Right. The only woman? That Stefan Loves is your sister. And I think you know that, Rafe. And besides, I thought we were here trying to get evidence to clear Gabby’s name, not have an interrogation into my past. I understand your resistance to your past, but it’s relevant. According to you. According to anyone.

Anyone who has an internet signal can look up your history with a cursory glance and see that you’re a criminal. Hmm. You’re trying to butter me up here. I’m trying to get the truth, Ava. The whole story. I have a theory. I think that the killings are connected. I think that Gil came here looking for you.

And he ran into Lee, and Lee was in his way, and so he took him out. Then my sister came in here and she She saw the body and she stupidly picked up the knife.

Yeah, well that

Is definitely a theory. No more dancing around it, Ava. You. You were the intended victim, and I think that you know it.

Kids that make it all worthwhile, don’t they? Even when they’re driving you up the damn wall. Yeah, they do. Jude, he’s my world. I mean, he may not carry my DNA, but the second they put my son into my arms, I knew he was. Well, genetics have nothing to do with that kind of love. Agreed. I mean, your son is, is amazing.

I agree. What a great kid. He’s growing up fast. Too fast. Yeah, they do, don’t they? Yeah, they do. Just make sure you cherish every moment you can with that little boy of yours. Oh, I will. I mean, I do. Man, I am so blessed to be his dad.

What do you mean, something’s not adding up? I told EJ about the baby swap out of the goodness of my heart. Oh, because that’s what you’re so known for, isn’t it? The goodness of your heart. It’s called mag something. Minity? Nimity. No. Let’s stay on topic. Look, I didn’t go there looking for a payout. EJ spearheaded that so that I wouldn’t ask any questions or talk to anyone about ye olde baby swap.

Great. So do what you’re paid to do, Leo. Look, I had no choice after your hunky husband cut me off. I had no money. Is that why you went to EJ? I told you I would if my allowance stopped coming. No, you more recently said that you wouldn’t. Yeah, well, this guy had other plans. This guy had nothing to do with it, Leo.

It’s you that poured the poison down your throat. You’re the reason that we’re in this mess. What do you want from me? Do you want me to say I’m sorry? Fine. I’m sorry.

I am. I’m sorry. Look, I, I care about Jude, you know that. He’s always given me that toothless little smile of his. When I babysat for him, I took this picture of him, and I look at it when I need to calm down or be cheered up, and honestly, I just think that Okay, it’s just enough. No, no, no, hear me out, please.

I just think that he should be with his biological mom. You know, the one who actually likes kids. Excuse me, what? Jude is never going back to Nicole. Ever. Wait, what?

You think I was skills targeted? I do. And I think with forensic evidence, I On a plausible motive, we have a much better chance at getting my sister her freedom. But I need the whole story, okay? I need, I need to know whatever your relationship was with Gil and how Okay, I did not have a relationship with Gil, okay?

He was a snake. And he was always coming on to me at work, making lecherous and creepy comments. And he was the kind of man who would not take, I am not interested, I’m sick. Or no for an answer, and that is it. Okay, so then why did you have to come back here to do that? Do I really have to spell that out for you, Rafe?

There is always the chance that someone can be at the bistro. It’s not really the most ideal place for a sexual assault. Is it too hard for you to get inside the head of a predator?

So after Gil killed Lee, he came back for you, and you killed him. In self defense. I’m sorry, I don’t understand.

Are you saying that EJ doesn’t want his kid? No, that’s not at all what I’m saying. Yeah, actually what you said is that Nicole will never have him, so using my excellent powers of deduction, that means EJ won’t either. Excuse me, just run it by me one more time, you know, that little thing that EJ said right before he paid you?

About it being a good idea to invest wisely? About him telling you to keep your mouth shut, don’t ask questions. Oh, that. Yeah, but you’re doing the exact opposite. I’m a journalist, Sloan. Take your lady whistleblower hat off, Leo, because it’s none of her concern. Lady Whistleblower is a part of me, sure. One part.

But you know what else I am? I’m a man with an extraordinary amount of flair. But underneath all of that flair is a sensitive guy with a big heart. A soft heart. And therefore, a ton of guilt for my role in stealing the cutest little child I’ve ever had the pleasure of birthing. A ton of guilt for letting EJ and Nicole think their child was dead.

And the truth is, I’m having a hard time living with myself because I feel so guilty. I feel guilty. What about you, Sloan? Lying to Eric this whole time. That baby being taken from his real mother. How are you sleeping at night? How are you living with yourself? So how is the, uh, feature coming along? It’s coming along well.

Yeah, everything okay? It’s going, uh, going alright with Nicole? Why wouldn’t it be? Well, I just know that, uh, I know you guys have history. And I know firsthand what it’s like to work with an ex. Yeah. Get a little bit thorny.

Oh, hey, sorry that took so long. Am I interrupting? No. Okay. Well, let’s get back to work. Uh, right. I should, um, I should have tracked down Thomas. He’s probably driving Denny nuts by now. Oh, wait, wait, wait. Hang on a second. I, I was setting up my desk this morning and I came across this notebook. I didn’t, I didn’t open it or anything.

It just seemed like the drawer had like a false bottom or something.

Is everything okay?

That’s Abigail’s handwriting.

The date of the last entry was just a few weeks before she died.

It still haunts me. Why I had to pull that trigger. And as big a bastard as Gil was, it still follows me. And

now the thought that Wendy’s brother was killed because of me.

He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just like Gabby was. Or maybe it’s just a story you keep telling yourself. I can’t do this. I can’t do this anymore. Ava, I’m

I am telling you, Rafe, I don’t know anything. And if I did, I would tell you.

But I don’t. Okay.

Okay, I’m gonna accept that for now. But I am telling you, that as long as my sister’s freedom is on the line, I’m not going to stop digging. Not by a long shot. I mean,

I can almost hear her voice in this writing. And there’s stats about ODs, drug arrests, violent crime data, upward trends. I mean, I thought I read everything that she wrote and I’ve never seen this before. She must have been working on it just before she died. How can we find out? I mean, would there be anybody else who might know?

I mean, she probably confided in Jack. Jack was the editor in chief then. And maybe he knows something. There’s only one way to find out, isn’t there?

Hey, Jack. Hey, yeah, it’s Chad. No, no, no. Everything, everything’s okay. Yeah. No, the kids are good. Um I actually just had a question about Abby. Did she tell you or Jennifer about a piece that she was working on before she died?

Oh, isn’t this delightful? Two of my favorite people in the world, in the top ten at the very least. Good to see you too, brother. Drinks? Good for now. I can get myself one, thanks. You’ve always been good at taking care of yourself, haven’t you, Kristen? And I always will be. Confident words for someone who’s living in the family manor off the family funds.

Peter, how are the renovations coming along on your glass house, CJ? Okay, can we put a pin in there? In the toxicity for a minute. I was just about to ask Kristen if she noticed that Damir is stuck. Oh! Don’t get ahead of yourself, AJ. It’s only itching up. Enough for the board to vote me in as permanent CEO of the next election.

Sure about that, huh? Oh, I’m very sure. It’s all about the bottom line, after all. Oh, I know. And who can argue with that, right? I mean, ingenuity, creativity. No one gives a rat’s ass about that, right? It’s all about the money. Always has been. I take it you’ve resigned yourself to my imminent ascension, Stefan.

Just remember, though, the rising tide lifts all boats. Right, well, since Tony and Chad want nothing to do with running the company, and I’m obviously persona non grata, DiMera, who else could it possibly be, right? Who else indeed? Looks like you got it buttoned up, brother. It’s a family.

Guilt is a waste of time, Leo. Nobody gets medals for suffering. Where did you pick that up? How to have no conscience in ten easy steps? Look, I’ve come to terms with what I did, okay? So should you. Let’s just put this dark time behind us. But you did what Dimitri did. What I’ve done. Put it behind us? For God’s sake, Sloane, we didn’t forget to feed a cat or water the plants.

We told a woman her son was dead when he wasn’t. A woman who is still grieving to this day and probably will for the rest of her life. And that is sad, yes. But look, she’s gonna get over it. Look, Nicole is in a very happy marriage to a rich and powerful man, okay? She has a daughter, she has a job. I think she’s doing fine.

So get over your self indulgent guilt, unless you want to spend the rest of your life as a dumpster fire. I’d keep my big mouth shut if I were you. Otherwise, I’ll happily tell EJ that you’re not upholding your end of the bargain. And honey, when that cat’s off the bag, losing all that money is going to be the least of your troubles.

Hey, Harris. It’s, uh, it’s me. Um, I’m not feeling so great. So I told Roman that I couldn’t work tonight, but, um, I need to talk to you, so Call me, please.

I can’t do it. I mean, how? How am I going to tell Wendy that it could be my fault that her brother is dead?

I pray that Rafe is wrong. Thanks, Jack. Yeah, I’ll, uh, I’ll give your love to the kids and please give ours to Jennifer as well. Okay, talk soon. Well? So, apparently Abby was working on something pretty heavy before she died. She was about to break it wide open. Heavy? That’s the word he used? What does that mean?

Look, Abby never told him what it was, and nothing ever came of it, so Jack just assumes that she dropped it. But based on, based on these dates and, and her notes, I mean, she, she didn’t. She didn’t drop it. So, if you were to guess, My guess would be the increased drug traffic in Salem. Hey, wasn’t Clyde Wesson released from prison right before Abigail died?

Yeah, Salem PD is still trying to dismantle that narcotics operation. You mean the drugs that nearly killed Holly?

Abby was on to Clyde. Question is, did he know about it?

Since when do you make house calls? Since you’re never in your office. Can we talk? I’ll assume I’ll have no choice.

Oh, well look who else is here. What’s this about? There’s new evidence that suggests that Gabby is innocent. That she did not kill Lee Shin. Please, your sister is far from innocent. What is this, a copy of a photo? No, that is a photograph of the black book and lab results and fingerprints. Is that all you’ve got?

Is it all? It’s Gil’s fingerprint in Lee Shin’s blood. Which could have been there for years, this proves absolutely nothing. What do you mean proves absolutely nothing? Especially since it happened to be discovered by Gabby’s husband. Okay, I found that book knowing it belonged to Gil and I immediately turned it over to the police.

So you say, but there’s nothing substantial enough here to justify reopening the case. Look, I’m not just insane, EJ. The book couldn’t have been there for years. The Bistro was only under Gil’s management for, what, a few months? And Gil and Lee hadn’t been there for years. As D. J., the decision is mine, and the decision is final.

We will not be reopening this case. Are you End of story. D. J.? EJ! Oh, this is This is so beautiful! This is beautiful! Baby! What’s going on?

Did I miss a date?

Uh, it has been non stop. I’m telling you, between patients and administrative work, and problems with our internet, so our telemedicine appointments are all messed up, and uh, I’m just glad that I was able to get away. Oh, sweetness, I’ll take any time I can get with you. I’m really sorry all the staff shortages have been wearing you down so much.

Yeah, it’s been tough, but I can handle it. Yeah. Um, I’ll just be happy when new docs show up, you know?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Ashley: What’s wrong?

Alan: I– I– this isn’t a good idea.

Ashley: Who says?

Alan: I– I just can’t, okay?

Ashley: Why not?

Alan: Well, I don’t think it’s a good idea.

Ashley: Well, it was a good idea a second ago. What changed?

Alan: Look, you are a beautiful woman, but I just can’t have this kind of relationship with you.

Ashley: But you still haven’t told me why.

Alan: Anything that happened between us romantically would be unfair to you. That–

Ashley: Oh. Are you seeing someone?

Alan: Uh, no. No, that’s– that’s not it.

Ashley: Okay, well, then I don’t get it. Why is it unfair for us to see each other? What aren’t you telling me?

Lily: Esther, hi. Have you heard from billy today?

Esther: Uh, no, he hasn’t been in.

Lily: Okay, I’ve been trying to reach him, and nobody seems to know where he is.

Esther: Sorry, I wish I could tell you.

Lily: It’s okay. Um, let me know if he checks in, okay?

Esther: Will do. Oh, wait, lily, I wanted to tell you. I got this weird e-mail from jill earlier today.

Lily: Oh, god. What did it say?

Esther: She told me that she wanted me to forward all her chancellor-winters correspondence to billy. But I wanted to check with you first. Is that right? Is that what I’m supposed to do?

Lily: Yeah, unfortunately, yes.

Esther: Really? You’ve gotta be kidding. What does that mean? Oh, is jill retiring?

Lily: No.

Esther: Is there a man? Oh, there’s gotta be a man. Wait, is billy taking over? Oh, no, no, am I gonna have my–

Lily: Esther, esther, everything is fine. Everything is fine, okay? No one’s leaving, all right? Let me know if billy calls you.

Esther: Okay.

Nate: So, uh, any news?

Lily: Yep, I spoke to jill. Everything billy said was legit.

Nate: Wow.

Lily: Yep. And now, I haven’t heard from him. He’s unreachable. Hasn’t even showed up to the office today.

Nate: Okay, so what do you think this means?

Lily: I don’t know. First day nerves?

Nate: With billy? Right.

Lily: I mean, what terrifies me is that billy abbott has just been handed the keys of the kingdom. And apparently, he’s blowing us off.

Devon: Is this a good time to talk?

Audra: You know, if you came here to blast your father or blame him for something, then no, it’s not a good time.

Tucker: Audra.

Audra: Aren’t either of you tired of it? Of you always asking for forgiveness and you shutting him down.

Devon: I’m sorry, is he your dad or mine? Can he speak for himself?

Audra: Very funny, devon. That’s up to him.

Tucker: Why don’t we just hear what he has to say.

Audra: Fine, I’ll give you two some privacy.

Devon: Thanks.

Audra: I’ll be upstairs, packing for our trip.

Tucker: After you.

Devon: So, where are you two headed?

Tucker: Paris.

Devon: Really?

Tucker: Yeah.

Devon: That’s sudden. You gonna be gone for a while?

Tucker: Is that idle curiosity or wishful thinking?

Devon: It’s just a question.

Tucker: Uh, we’re going for a little while for business. Mixing in some pleasure. But your reaction made me wonder.

Devon: About what?

Tucker: Would it bother you at all if I left town for good?

I have moderate to severe

crohn’s disease.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Devon: Tucker, this is not the time for this.

Tucker: Sorry, the time for what?

Devon: To… to test me on how I feel about you.

Tucker: No, no, no, I don’t mean it as a test. It’s a simple question. If I were no longer here, would it matter to you?

Devon: I mean, I– I’m used to you being gone. So, you know, you’re always traveling the world. You’re clearly comfortable living in different places. So, it probably makes sense for you to leave town, considering how things stand for you right now.

Tucker: You mean considering most of the people in this town can’t stand me? Including my own son?

Devon: You know, I’m just trying to answer your question.

Tucker: So, what’s on your mind?

Devon: I want you to be honest with me about something. I want to know what your original plan was with mamie to get jill out of chancellor-winters. I wanna know what you were gonna do.

Tucker: Well, that’s old news.

Devon: I’m aware.

Tucker: I have no designs on your company whatsoever, with or without mamie.

Devon: And I believe that.

Tucker: But someone else does. Is it coming from inside or outside?

Devon: Inside.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. Which leads us to which power-hungry insider with a perpetual chip on his shoulder would have the stones to pull off such a thing? Billy. You want him out, don’t you?

[ Knock on door ]

Audra: Sally!

Sally: Hi, neighbor.

Audra: Hi.

Sally: I just wanted to stop by. Are you busy?

Audra: No, no, no, no. Come on in.

Sally: Are you sure? ‘Cause I don’t wanna, like, interrupt anything.

Audra: No, it’s fine. I’m just checking and rechecking my suitcase for the thousandth time to make sure I haven’t forgotten anything.

Sally: Are you going on a trip?

Audra: Paris. Uh, paris, among other european destinations to be decided later. We’re actually leaving tonight.

Sally: You’re finally going.

Audra: Yeah.

Sally: Wow, I’m happy for you. I’m jealous, also. But now I get why you’re in such a good mood.

Audra: Um, no, still not engaged. I think tucker is counting on the romantic pull of the city lights to change my mind, but I can be just as stubborn as he is.

Sally: Well, it’s all wonderful, engagement ring or not. I’m really happy for you, audra.

Audra: Thank you. Is there something on your mind?

Sally: No. No, I don’t want to bother you with it before your trip, so…

Audra: No, sally, we’re friends now. You can bother me with anything. What’s going on?

Sally: I wanna get your advice. How do you know when it’s finally time to cut and run?

Ashley: So, you think I’m crazy?

Alan: Ashley, you know I don’t use words like that.

Ashley: Right. But I must be a delicate flower, and you just can’t cross that line.

Alan: It’s– it’s not about you, all right? Obviously, you are a beautiful, intelligent and fascinating woman.

Ashley: Well, I definitely felt an attraction. And I felt it from both sides.

Alan: I just don’t think it could go anywhere.

Ashley: So, stop dancing around it. Tell me why.

Alan: This is not my home. And, uh, you know, I can’t stay here indefinitely. And it is your home. Your family lives here. And I just don’t see how it could work out.

Ashley: Are you actually telling me that I’m geographically undesirable?

Alan: I wouldn’t use that phrase exactly. But, yeah, it would be a long-distance relationship. And in my experience, those kinds of things rarely work out.

Ashley: I don’t buy it.

Alan: What?

Ashley: Well, who’s to say I wouldn’t move to paris if someone, you know, made me want to?

Alan: Well, I couldn’t ask that of you.

Ashley: Then, why are you here at all?

Alan: Ashley, I–

Ashley: You’re here because you wanna psychoanalyze me. Just admit it, alan.

If you have chronic

kidney disease you can reduce

Ashley: Well, I feel foolish.

Alan: Ashley, I– I–

Ashley: This whole time I’ve been throwing myself at you and you’re just interested in what makes me tick.

Alan: No. You are a good friend. All right? And I’ve obviously hurt your feelings. And I’m very, very sorry for that and–

Ashley: What are you sorry for? Leading me on?

Alan: I’m sorry you think–

Ashley: I really– I thought that you changed your plans for me ’cause you were interested in me and not my issues. Well, I guess the joke’s on me, isn’t it, alan?

Alan: I do care about you.

Ashley: Yeah, just like you care about all your patients?

Alan: No, it is not like that.

Ashley: Goodbye, alan. And trust me, the next time i need a shrink, I will call you.

Alan: No, ashley, I…

Lily: Great, thank you.

Nate: So, what happens now?

Lily: Well, until we know where billy is and what his plan is, nothing.

Nate: Mm. I warned devon to back off with billy, that it wasn’t gonna end well, and it would just piss him off.

Lily: I know.

Nate: And here we are.

Lily: No, it’s okay. We all could’ve handled things better. This is where we are, right? Just gotta figure out how to move forward without killing each other.

Nate: I’m all for that, but it’s kinda hard to make plans when one of your key people is missing in action. Did billy give you any idea about what he wanted to do?

Lily: No. I was hoping to find that out today.

Nate: Well, I am pretty sure I know where I stand with the guy. And that’s nowhere.

Lily: No, I wouldn’t be so sure about that.

Nate: Come on, lily. He voted against my rejoining the board.

Lily: That’s because it was a dig at devon, okay? And– and he and jill were worried that our family was trying to push them out, which kind of turned out to be true.

Nate: She must’ve been reading aunt mamie’s mind.

Lily: Well, I mean, I wouldn’t put anything past those women, including clairvoyance.

Nate: You know, maybe we shouldn’t have been so hard on aunt mamie. We might need her down the road.

Lily: No, no. She needed to back off. All mamie wants to do is just go after jill at all costs. So no, we have to keep her out of the loop until we have a plan.

Nate: Agreed.

[ Cell phone buzzes ] What is it?

Lily: It’s from billy.

Nate: And?

Lily: It is not good news.

Tucker: Am I right? Is billy your target?

Devon: Good job.

Tucker: Yes. I will help you in any way I can.

Devon: Yeah?

Tucker: I’ve never had much use for billy anyway.

Devon: Well, just know I’m not looking to have a partnership with you or form an alliance over this, okay?

Tucker: Any way you wanna play it.

Devon: That’s how I wanna play it. I’m just looking for information. Nothing’s changed between us.

Tucker: Well. I would disagree there.

Devon: Well, if you disagree with that, then maybe this is a mistake.

Tucker: No, no, no. It’s not a mistake. Wait a minute, devon. Wait a minute!

Devon: What?

Tucker: I was about to say that I disagree that nothing has changed because as far as I’m concerned, maybe this is an opportunity to prove to you that I have changed.

Ms. Abbott: Face it, sweetie. Your plan didn’t work. Time to hand this over to someone who can get it done quickly and painlessly.

Ashley: No, I am not giving up on love. It is the only way to fix ashley’s heart and her mind. Now, I’m gonna have a little tasty bit of tequila.

Traci: Ashley, hi. I thought I heard you come in. Uh, wow. Who– who were you talking to?

Ashley: Myself. Is that a crime?

Traci: No, sorry. Just asking. Um, how are you?

Ashley: Fine.

Traci: Good. Um, where did you go?

Ashley: Out.

Traci: Yeah, I– I know you went out, ashley. I’m just curious. Did you have a chance to see alan?

Ashley: And wouldn’t you like to know?

Traci: I’m just making conversation.

Ashley: No, I know what you want. You wanna know if alan has fixed me, right? You wanna know because, uh, god forbid ashley have any feelings or emotions. I mean, the family just gets so uncomfortable when she’s like that, right? She’s just so much to handle. Ashley’s just too much, period. Isn’t she?

Traci: No. No one in the family thinks that at all about you.

Ashley: The hell, you don’T. You say you love me. You’re trying to convince me something’s wrong with me, traci. That’s not love. That’s hurtful. But I’ve accepted you. I’ve accepted jack. I’ve accepted all of you. So, why is it different for me? Why can’t you accept me?

So tell me about

your heart attack.

Devon: All right. Fine. If you want to use this as a way to show that you’re a changed man, talk and prove it.

Tucker: That’s all I ask.

Devon: Just know this is not gonna be a quid pro quo situation. We’re not gonna be exchanging favors.

Tucker: I haven’t asked for any.

Devon: Yeah, you did. You did. You just asked me and abby if you can go to dominic’s performance.

Tucker: Oh.

Devon: All right. And those are the kind of things I’m talking about. Either you’re gonna help me or you’re not.

Tucker: That’s fine. Yeah. I agree to that.

Devon: Good.

Tucker: I just ask you to keep an open mind.

Devon: Well, that depends on how this goes.

Tucker: Okay. So, just so we’re clear, we’re talking about billy, yes?

Devon: Yes, we are.

Tucker: Well, frankly, I’m not surprised he’s become an issue, but he’s no fool. This would need to be handled quickly, but most importantly, carefully.

Devon: All right. But just to be clear, again, I don’t want you handling anything, okay? I just wanna know what you were gonna do, and if you had any leverage over jill that I can turn against billy now. That’s all I want from you. It’s all I need.

Audra: Well, talk to me. What’s going on? Are– are you and adam having problems?

Sally: No, no, no. No. No, it’s not about that at all, actually. Adam and I are more than great.

Audra: Good.

Sally: Yeah. He’s sweet, attentive. He’s challenging, but so brilliant.

Audra: Hm. Challenging and so brilliant. That is not the kind of man you can just walk away from.

Sally: No, it is not. I agree. No, I’m– I’m– I’m talking about my interior design business.

Audra: Oh. Uh, yeah. Startups are never easy, sally. But– but sit down. Let’s talk about it. isour business struggling? I– I’d love to help.

Sally: We’re not struggling. We are sinking.

Audra: Oh.

Sally: And I’ve actually been paying a lot of our bills out of my personal account.

Audra: Oh, wow.

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Not supposed to do that, but I did.

Audra: Yeah.

Sally: And between us, I’m actually really afraid that this is a hole we can’t dig ourselves out of.

Audra: Okay, well, let’s just slow down a bit. Let’s go over your options.

Sally: Okay, so chloe and i talked about cutting our losses and going back to our first love, which has always been fashion.

Audra: Oh. Well, I mean, there you have your answer, sally. Listen, I always love what you’re wearing, okay? You have superb taste. Why not just go for it?

Sally: Thank you. Um, it’s just not that simple.

Audra: Why?

Sally: Nick invested money in this business and I’m really afraid that I’m gonna let him down.

Audra: Well, if he’s as good a guy as you keep telling me he is, I think he’ll understand. Plus, he’s a newman, girl. They have money. He can just report it as a business loss on his taxes, and that’ll help mitigate the expense.

Sally: I know. I know. But there’s also the fact that I’ve had numerous businesses over the last several years and I… I don’t know. I just really want to find a lane and stick to it.

Audra: Yeah, I get what you’re saying, but… it just seems to me that you are capable in a lot of different areas. Okay, you’ve done, uh, fashion, interior design, you’ve ran newman media and I bet you could run a baseball team if you put your mind to it.

Sally: Yeah, and design their uniforms for free.

Audra: Already cutting costs.

Sally: Yeah.

Audra: Okay, jokes aside, you are good at a lot of things, sally, okay? But it all comes down to what you really wanna do with your life, what your heart tells you to do.

Sally: Yeah. It’s a simple question. Just wish it was a simple answer.

Traci: Ashley, we are not the enemy. All any one of us wants is what’s best for you, what will make you happy.

Ashley: And you don’t think I want that.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Traci: Ah. Alan, oh, my goodness, what a nice surprise.

Alan: I hope this isn’t a bad time.

Traci: It’s not. Please, come in.

Alan: Thank you. Hi.

Ashley: Hello.

Traci: Um, so, I have a meeting with my publisher on the phone in just a few minutes. Could you both excuse me?

Ashley: Definitely. Hm. So, what are you doing here?

Alan: Well, I, uh, I wanted to, um, continue our conversation.

Ashley: You did? Why? Did you have a change of heart?

Alan: Well, I– I just want you to know that I am here as your friend, ashley. Now, I– I am a professional, and there are concerns, but you and I have been friends for a very long time…

Ms. Abbott: You know why he’s here, it’s because you overplayed your hand. He’s on to you. They’re all on to you. You had your shot, and you blew it. Now, it’s my turn.

Alan: …Anything I said–

Ashley: I don’t wanna hear this!

Alan: Ashley, are you– are you all right?

Ashley: Of course, I’m all right. Why wouldn’t I be? ()

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue…

Audra: Did you know I used to be an artist?

Sally: No, I did not know that.

Audra: Oh, yeah, I– I loved it. You know, the– the art life. I painted, uh, sculpted, experimented. It was all very intense, uh, but fun. And not at all profitable.

Sally: What happened?

Audra: Well, you know, as i got older, I– I started looking at other people’s work and thinking, “you’re okay, but could you really make a career out of this? So, I had to be objective and honest about my work. And it was– it was heartbreaking to come to that realization. Yeah. And who knows, you know? Maybe I could have made it in the art world. Been the next frida kahlo. I don’t know. But what I did know was that i was down to my last few packets of ramen noodles. And girl, paint is so expensive. So, I had to choose. Do I want a life of struggle or do I want security? So, I went with business school.

Sally: Do you have any regrets?

Audra: Zero regrets. You know, my heart wasn’t in it. I was miserable trying to become this person I wasn’t meant to be. Besides, most artists’ work only becomes valuable after their death and I need to taste my success. You know, the business world is where I practice my art now. And I am as good as anybody.

Sally: The thing is… I’ve always known who I’m supposed to be. I think it’s just really a matter of reclaiming that passion and sticking to it.

Audra: Exactly. Sometimes, you just need someone to remind you.

[ Alan sighing ]

Alan: Look, I’m sorry I keep asking how you’re doing, but it seemed like you were in distress just now.

Ashley: I have a lot going on.

Alan: Do you wanna talk about it?

Ashley: No, I don’t wanna talk about it. I think we’ve talked enough.

Alan: Okay, I’m– I’m sorry I’ve upset you.

Ashley: I’m not upset. I’m bored. All this probing you’re doing into my feelings and my emotions, it’s exhausting. Frankly, you’re exhausting.

Alan: Well, I’m sorry you feel that way. I thought our friendship was strong enough to handle honesty.

Ashley: Hm. Well, maybe our friendship has run its course.

Alan: Wait, ashley, where are you going?

Ashley: I have a life, alan.

Alan: No, ashley, wait.

Ashley: No, listen, I do not need you to take care of me, okay? I’m perfectly capable of taking care of myself. I don’t need to be rescued. Thank you so much.

Alan: Ashley.

Traci: Ah, I thought I heard the door slam. Did, um, did ashley leave?

Alan: Yeah.

Traci: Oh. All right, what do you think? How is she?

Alan: Well, I’m afraid it’s worse than I thought. There’s obviously more than one personality at play here, and the one I just spoke to is rather concerning.

Tucker: I wish I would’ve had a silver bullet to take down jill and billy, but the fact of the matter is there was no specific plan.

Devon: I find that really hard to believe.

Tucker: Why would I lie to you about that now?

Devon: I have no idea. You lie about a whole bunch of things that you don’t need to lie about, so…

Tucker: I’m telling you the truth. I– I very often just wing it and trust that the solution will present itself at the right time. And sometimes, that works. Sometimes, it doesn’t, you know. It does keep people guessing. Which is nice.

Devon: Yeah, but what did you expect to happen?

Tucker: I thought once mamie was inside chancellor-winters, she could dig up some dirt on jill that I could use to do my thing, but obviously that didn’t happen.

Devon: ‘Cause mamie turned on you.

Tucker: And then you turned on me, so I just abandoned the whole deal. And you can ask mamie if you don’t believe me.

Devon: No, that’s not an option right now, so I’m gonna have to take your word for it.

Tucker: Oh, really? Is there some family drama going on?

Devon: No, it’s– no, it’s nothing that would concern you.

Tucker: Well, it might if you’re asking me to be involved.

Devon: It’s just we’re not seeing eye-to-eye on some business issues and I’m gonna leave it at that.

Tucker: Hm. I am sorry.

Devon: For what?

Tucker: A lot of things. Uh… I’m sorry that I can’t give more help to you in this situation. I feel like I’m letting you down.

Devon: No, this is not you letting me down. You don’t have to be sorry for this. I just… it was a long shot and I need to find a different angle, that’s all.

Tucker: Yeah. Maybe– maybe I have one. Let me take care of billy.

Dupixent helps people with

Lily: “Sorry for the abrupt departure. I figured you could use the time to cool down and come to terms with my new position at the company. Maybe even get devon to put those gloves back on. Meanwhile, I’ll be taking a trip to various company offices to wave the chancellor-winters flag and get to know them a little better. All in the interest of fostering strong communication. I’ll be in touch, billy.” I mean, what do you think?

Nate: I can’t believe the guy’s already taken the victory lap.

Lily: No, this is more serious than that. He’s using this trip to gather allies. He’s probably gonna charm them and– and flatter them and make a lot of promises that we’re gonna have to deal with. He’s fired the first shot.

Devon: No, tucker. I don’t want you going after billy abbott or anybody at chancellor-winters, and especially not on my behalf, okay?

Tucker: Hear me out, at least. Consider it.

Devon: What?

Tucker: I can take actions that you can’t, or would rather not. And I just have way more experience in this kind of thing than you do. And it’s in your best interest to think about this as a long-game strategy. This is not gonna be a quick-fix type of thing.

Devon: What would your long-game strategy be? What would the plan be?

Tucker: Well, once I got rid of billy, you’d still have jill to deal with and she is going to be thoroughly pissed that billy has been kicked to the curb. And if she finds out you had anything to do with it, she is gonna be out for your blood. And believe me, that woman knows how to hold a grudge.

Devon: Okay, yeah. So, what would the plan be? Are you gonna do all the dirty work and I get to keep my hands clean?

Tucker: Perfect, isn’t it?

Devon: Not if she finds out that we had this conversation. Which wouldn’t be a stretch for jill because she knows that billy and I have issues.

Tucker: Ah, but you would resolve those issues, devon. You would make a big show, a public show, of, uh, your one-for-all, all-for-one feelings about billy. And meanwhile, I would remain the bad guy in town. You would be the honorable son who wants nothing to do with me. Billy’s out of the picture. And you have one less obstacle in your way.

Devon: Right.

Tucker: What do you think?

Devon: I think– I think it sounds complicated. And it’s messy, clearly. And I think it would probably blow up in our face.

Tucker: It’s definitely gonna be complicated. You can’t just ask billy to leave.

Devon: Yeah, I know, I’m aware of that. But I didn’t– I didn’t come here for this. I came just to get information from you. I don’t want you to make new problems for me, okay? But I do appreciate you and your willingness to help me. It does mean a lot. And I thank you for the information. But, no thanks.

Tucker: Okay. Um… I’m sorry that I couldn’t be more helpful to you.

Devon: It’s okay.

Tucker: Uh–

Devon: See you.

Tucker: Yeah.

Sally: Well, thank you, audra. You’ve really given me a lot to think about.

Audra: You’d do the same for me.

Sally: I would love to see your art one day. Did you keep any of it?

Audra: It’s in a storage somewhere. I don’t even think about that part of my life anymore.

Sally: Well, I’m sure you’re a lot better than you give yourself credit for.

Audra: I’m where I’m supposed to be and you will be too. Just keep believing in yourself.

[ Cell phone buzzes ] Yes! [ Laughs ]

Sally: What is it?

Audra: Uh, the airline found us an earlier flight. Which means I better hustle and finish packing.

Sally: Oh, yeah. I will not keep you.

Audra: Uh, no. You can stick around.

Sally: Um, no. Really, I– I– I– it’s fine. But please bring me back a souvenir.

Audra: Ooh, you got it. Boy, I can’t wait to say au revoir, genoa city and au revoir, ashley.

Traci: So, you’re talking about multiple personalities. Is– is this an official diagnosis?

Alan: Well, to be clear, it’s too early to say for sure if it’s did. Dissociative identity disorder.

Traci: Oh. I– I– I had no idea. I– I– I mean, I was so afraid when I was watching her, but i didn’t wanna think it was this extreme.

Alan: Well, you’ve seen it as well as I have. One moment, she’s flirtatious, coquettish even, and then she’s rigid and dismissive. These identities are all a part of ashley.

Traci: So, are they competing with each other? Are– are they working together? And more importantly, can they hurt her?

Alan: Well, it’s too early to say, but if in fact this is did, these personas are usually developed in order to help protect ashley’s psyche.

Traci: Protect her psyche from what?

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Audra: Okay. All right. Hey.

Tucker: Hey, mi amor.

Audra: So, how did it go with devon?

Tucker: Better than I would’ve hoped.

Audra: Huh. So, he was civil?

Tucker: Yeah, he was. He wanted a favor.

Audra: Hm. Well, that makes sense now. I– I hope you didn’t give it to him. Not after all the times he’s pulled a rug out from under you. He doesn’t deserve it.

Tucker: That’s for me to decide, isn’t it?

Audra: So, what’s the favor?

Tucker: If I can succeed at getting billy abbott out at chancellor-winters, devon says he’s willing to give me another chance as a father.

Nate: It sounds like billy to want to go off and play a visiting hero, but what does he hope to prove?

Lily: That he’s in charge? That he’s the man to see?

Nate: Yes, but you’re still ceo.

Lily: Well, I guess maybe he’s gonna try to play–

Devon: Hey.

Lily: Nice of you to join us. Where have you been?

Devon: I had an errand to run.

Lily: Was it more important than billy and jill shaking up the entire company?

Devon: I was trying to find a solution to that problem.

Lily: And how’d that go?

Devon: It didn’t go. It didn’t go at all. Nothing came of it. What’s happening here, though?

Nate: Uh, billy has taken off on a goodwill tour to visit some of our regional offices and spread the word that he’s moved up in the world.

Devon: Good.

Lily: No, it’s not good. While we’re stuck here trying to figure out what to do, he’s putting himself out there as the face of chancellor-winters.

Devon: Let him. We’ll use it to our advantage. ‘Cause the longer he’s gone, the more time we have to figure out how to cut him off at the knees before he gets back.

Alan: Well, at this stage, I can’t really say what ashley’s personas are protecting her from, but most likely it’s something they don’t want her to cope with, which means we can assume it’s substantial.

Traci: Well, what can we do?

Alan: Well, we need to get her into a controlled, protective environment and I mean, that’s really the only place where treatment can work.

Traci: You’ve seen how she’s been acting lately. I– I– is that even possible?

Alan: The real ashley is in there somewhere. We just need to reach her and bring her to the surface and get her to agree to get the help that she needs.

Traci: And what if we can’t?

Alan: Well, I’m afraid there aren’t a lot of good alternatives.

Ashley: God, these stupid clothes.

Ash: Hey, what’s up?

Ashley: God, you little brat. I thought you were gone.

[ Ash laughs ]

Ash: You can’t get rid of me that easy.

Belle: And why on god’s green earth were you so mean to alan? He came over to apologize.

Ashley: Don’t you start with me, you tramp.

Belle: Now, you call me that one more time.

Ash: So mean, and she thinks she’s in charge.

Ashley: Shut up, both of you! Stay in your place. I’ve got work to do. It’s time for tucker mccall to die.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Without me, you talk to carly? Yeah. We’ve got trouble. Your, uh, regular wine list is somewhat lacking tonight. Didn’t the previous owner keep a supply of interesting wine for the more discriminating customer? That’s still the case. Special occasion? Hoping to rekindle an old flame.

[ Cellphone rings ] Yes? This is clement, the pharmacist. I’m aware.

Our deal is off. I’m gonna need you to clarify that. I’m done messing with sonny corinthos’s medications. His wife is on to us. “The basis for my disbarment was an accusation of perjury based on hearsay evidence. No one involved with the accusation was present for or affected by the statement in question.” That bad, huh?

[ Chuckles ] I’m sorry. I got distracted by pictures, uh, of the rehearsal dinner at coney island. Let me see. Aw. Yeah. It looks like they’re having a good time. How long do you think it’ll be before lois convinces tracy to go on the cyclone?

[ Scoffs ] Anything’s possible. Yeah, well, nothing compares to our parachute jump. Nothing at all. No, I didn’t mean to — to get us off track. Let’s get back to rehearsing your pitch for reinstatement to the bar. You know what? It’s fine. Let’s take a breather. Absolutely not. If you’re gonna spend your evening babysitting me, at least let me make myself useful. How bad? Oh, god. Well… I think the severity of this situation all hinges on whether or not you can handle carly before she blows this entire operation and gets herself sent to prison in the bargain.

Think of the mcconkey esplanade like — like the high line in manhattan, right? The plan is to transform something that’s rundown and flat-out dangerous into something that’s beautiful and safe and clean, a place where pedestrians can gather in — in large numbers. I’m telling you, we do this right, and it should vastly improve the city’s fortunes. And alter the perception people have of port charles being a haven for organized crime. Yeah, that couldn’t hurt. So what do you think? I mean, is this kind of what you pictured? Well, I am definitely impressed. It’s a bold and imaginative idea and a big investment for the future of port charles. Well, that’s great news. I’m glad we are in agreement on that. But it’s not big enough. The way you have it laid out, this proposal won’t even get off the ground. Come on, alexis. I know finn asked you to watch over me while everyone’s off at coney island. He did not. He is worried about your well-being while he’s away, but my coming here was my idea, because, “a,” I really do want your help, and, “b,” you are my friend. Not my charge, and certainly not someone that I need to babysit for. Okay. Maybe that was a poor choice of words, but my point remains. Gregory… finn just wants you to be okay. And he agonizes over how to do that without trespassing on your autonomy. He knows that — that your time is limited, and he doesn’t want to waste any of it with the two of you being at odds with each other. Wow. Sounds like you two had quite the emotional conversation.

[ Sighs ] I’m guessing he also told you that I lost my temper and dredged up his little tryst with jackie on our wedding eve? Of course he did. Finn was hurting, and you’re his friend. Look, I got frustrated. I-I wanted to be left alone by myself for a few hours. And when he argued against it, I retaliated by laying a hell of a guilt trip on him. It was a cheap shot. As cheap as they come. Okay, listen, tell me exactly what’s happened. Sonny’s wife came to my office earlier today asking a lot of questions about his prescription. She knows he’s not on the full dose of his meds. Okay. And?

And what?! Isn’t that bad enough? She — she knows! She threatened you? Have the police been contacted? Sonny? N-no, no. But — but y-you’re not listening to me. No, I am listening. I’ve heard everything

that you’ve said. You said that a woman claiming to be mrs. Corinthos approached you, claiming that she knows you have been delivering sonny a lower-than-prescribed dose of his bipolar medication. And rather than going to the authorities, she turned and walked away. Does that sound about right?

[ Stammers ] More or less. Why aren’t you as upset about this as I am? Okay, listen, if this “wife” of sonny’s wanted you arrested, you’d be in handcuffs by now. Can you describe her to me? Well, s-she was — she was blond, beautiful.  Honestly, that’s all I remember. It all happened so fast. I can identify her. In the meantime, you stay the course and continue to deliver sonny the lower dose. But w-what if sonny’s wife actually does report me? Sonny doesn’t have a wife, not currently. But he does have several beautiful blondes in his orbit, and I am familiar with all of them. I’ll identify the woman who approached you, and I will deal with her appropriately. You were right. Carly was listening in on your conversation with john, and she took it upon herself to go visit brennan in pentonville, where she proceeded to inform him that cates was looking into pikeman. So now that means that this operation is — is blown. I can’T… yeah, because brennan — he’s gonna reach out to whatever allies he has left at the wsb to obstruct this investigation. And if the fbi can’t build a case against pikeman — well, then my deal with cates is blown. And carly will be prosecuted. Yeah, and that can’t happen. I know! It can’t happen. Well, I’ve been thinking. It stands to reason that the first person he would reach out to is ostensibly the same target that we’re after. Right. Whoever’s running pikeman. Right. So if we can find out how he makes contact with his successor, then, actually, we could use carly’s mistake to our advantage. Well, this is fortuitous. I was thinking about you, and here you are. Oh, perfect timing. What’s up? I’ve heard from charlotte. I have an update on that equestrian event in normandy. Oh, I do want to hear about that, but, unfortunately, I have a meeting that I have to get to. Oh, all right. Well, then, another time. Okay. Um, just one question. You haven’t reconciled with sonny, have you? Um, no. No. I-I’m sorry. Where did you hear that? I just — I thought I heard somebody say. Obviously, I was mistaken. No, sonny and i are not together, and we’re not getting back together, either. Sonny and I are done for good. Okay. Well, you know how I feel about him. His loss. And ava’s gain. Come again? Well, ava’s worming her way into sonny’s house and his life, and she somehow made it where she’s one of the very few people that sonny feels like he can trust. They’re very close now. And ava wouldn’t have it any other way. Well, then, I guess you’re well and truly out of it. Perhaps I am, yeah. I really have to go. I’ll see you?

Ava. Spare a femoments for a friend? Projects of this size need so many different approvals from the regulatory bodies in the government. And they’re all just looking for a reason to say no. Now, the environmental review will be particularly tough, but our chances will increase exponentially if we have enough powerful friends in albany and dc. And I’m assuming you know how to win them over? I thought you’d never ask. Let’s start with the parking lots. That’s incredibly valuable real estate. And you have so much space allocated for them. Well, people have to park. Only if you drive in. Now, there’s an abandoned rail line ending right at the waterfront. It may be old, but it’s still viable. What if we get it back into workable shape, then connect it to the existing light rail network? And voil. Now, it’s not just a waterfront redevelopment. It’s mass transit. Exactly. And we can just sit back and watch the state and federal grants pour in. That is an amazing idea, jordan. It is, isn’t it? But I’m not done yet. I also think we should dredge the harbor at the dock adjacent to the esplanade and make it suitable for ferry service. Like, service to canada? Yeah. Think about it. The current drive time to toronto from port charles is three hours. A high-speed ferry will cut that time down to one hour. We would be an international tourist destination. And those tax dollars will pour in. Jordan, you are really good at this.

[ Chuckles ] I appreciate the enthusiasm. How could anybody say no to this? Feel like the next thing to do is just break ground. Okay, slow down. Slow down. We still have to get official approval. And then we can pop the champagne. What are we celebrating? Okay, so if brennan reaches out to whoever’s controlling pikeman, we just need to be ready and watching. Okay. I’ll talk to the authorities at pentonville. Meanwhile, I’m still pursuing the other angle. What was that? Valentin. So I’m — I’m meeting with him shortly. You okay with that? Yeah, I mean, you know, he — he claimed to be in europe when he was actually here monitoring the first attempt on sonny’s life. So that’s proof that he’s more involved with pikeman than he’s letting on. And I-I really need to find out just how involved. And you are our best chance of getting any information from him. Maybe. I-I think there’s something else that we need to discuss. Do we give john a heads up as to what we’re doing? As far as I’m concerned, I don’t need to talk to him until I tell him who’s running pikeman. I don’t want to work with him. I don’t want to deal with him. But you’re the police commissioner. This is a joint operation, so I will take your lead. I agree with you. John’s playing it very close to the vest. So will we. Sorry, nina. Gallery’s closed. Oh, you can make time for me, ava. After all, I never told sonny how you manipulated me into selling my hotel to jason. Is that what I did? I’m sure you can appreciate my discretion. On the other hand, I wish you’d be more forthcoming in your dealings with crimson. Well, I don’t know what you’re talking about. I have nothing to do with crimson. Really? Well, that’s odd. Because my assistant just asked me for my approval for a last-minute addition to next issue’s cultural calendar. Wouldn’t you know, there’s an exciting, new african artist making her debut in the united states, and her opening just happens to be taking place in the very gallery we’re standing in. I’m very successful at what I do. It stands to reason that a talented artist would choose my gallery. And to promote said artist, you’ve lobbied one of our assistant editors for the mention. Okay. All right, nina. You got me. But the fact is, the artist is extremely talented, and their work deserves to be seen. I make no apologies for that. I agree. I agree. Her work is beautiful. And I think crimson should spotlight worthy artists. I have no issue featuring her, despite your many,

many transgressions. Then what’s the problem? I don’t like that you went behind my back. You come to me first. Next time, I’m not gonna be so generous. I was protecting the artist, nina. I thought you would cancel the mention if you knew it came from me. Yeah, you’re smart to worry. ‘Cause you snaked sonny away from me, all while lying and pretending to be my friend. If that’s not worthy of payback, I don’t know what it is. There you go again. Always looking for somebody to blame. You ruined your relationship with sonny all on your own with your lies. And you didn’t wait five minutes before you took advantage of our breakup. That’s okay. What’s done is done. I don’t have a future with sonny. I know that now. I have finally accepted that… we’re over for good.

You expect me to believe that you’re suddenly fine with your marriage to sonny being over? You were there when I signed the divorce papers. Oh, I imagine that you delivered those papers to sonny yourself, didn’t you? It’s not what I wanted, but I’ve accepted the reality of it. Well, that sounds… too evolved to be true. Ava, you don’t think that I can grow and change? The way I see it, baby snatching, letting sonny’s family believe he was dead, and anonymous tips to the sec are all different sides it’s the same vindictive coin. So, no, no, I don’t see any evidence of you growing or changing, nina. Well, I never claimed to be perfect. The point is, I’m trying to be better. You should know what that looks like. You tried it once. For a minute or two, you and nikolas sort of had something real, didn’t you? And who knows if you could have sustained it, ava? You might still be married, and he wouldn’t be in prison. Well, you’re probably right about that. I-I went to see him — don’t mistake me for someone who still cares. We have no friendship anymore. We did. I know that. It was really nice being able to confide in you. But the first chance you had to help yourself to something that was mine, you took it, and the friendship is over. I mean, professionally, I’m sure that the two of us can be mature enough to get the most out of it, but that’s all that we will ever be to each other now. I hope it was worth it. Things just got out of hand. I-I felt like he was ignoring my wishes, like he wasn’t listening to me. He wasn’t seeing me, his father, and had just reduced me to this stinking disease again. I should have just stopped the conversation and said, “let’s start again when we calm down,” but instead I lashed out and said the cruelest thing possible.

[ Sighs ] I can’t tell you how much I regret it. Do you have any idea how much stress you’re under? It’s ridiculous. Show yourself some grace. I mean, my god, do you know how many times I’ve screwed up as a mother? And I had no excuse. Did I ever tell you about the time kristina came out to me? Did I tell you about how I reacted? I don’t believe so. Yeah, well, she didn’t get the love and acceptance that she was hoping for and deserved. Really? That surprises me. I would have thought — yeah, that I would have, you know, put out the rainbow flag. And, yes, I am 100% supportive of the lgbt community, but when it was my own daughter in front of me, I-I got scared. Of what? Of how much harder her life could be and people’s prejudices and scary moments that would happen to her, and I wouldn’t be able to protect her. I mean, there she was,

so vulnerable and wanted my unconditional love. And, honestly, it was one of my worst moments as a mother. I’m sorry to hear that. Well… it became my best moment, one of my best moments, anyway. Because, you know, you make a mistake, you learn from it, and I did. I self-reflected. I-I educated myself. I listened to other people talking to me. I apologized to her, and I explained to her why I reacted the way I-I did, and she understood. And we were better off for it. I’m glad to hear that, but I really don’t think our situations are the same. Gregory, your situation is exactly the same. You made a mistake. You’re human. And by the way, that is quite a relief because your being so saintly is really infuriating. Just apologize to him. Don’t let fester. I plan to.

[ Sighs ] I just — I’m not sure that an apology alone will do. I didn’t expect to see you today, jordan. It’s, uh, been a while. It has. Yes. I think the last time we spoke, I sent a group of apartment residents over to your office. “Sent”? “Sicced” is, I think, the word you’re looking for. And they were mightily disgruntled that I didn’t want to support their, um, affordable housing project. And was dealing with them not worth the return of my “get out the vote” efforts for your re-election campaign? Oh, I always know where my bread is buttered. Well, jordan is a valuable ally. And don’t you forget it. I have to get going, but thank you for getting behind the esplanade. We are really appreciative of your help, and we will definitely do good things in your name. Oh, I appreciate that. Yeah. Jordan, we’ll talk soon. Yeah, I’ll see you soon. Bye. So, yo ur timingis impeccable, because I’ve got a layout — yeah, just leave that alone for now. I’ve got another reason for being here. Um…why do you think I should get into bed with a convicted criminal?

[ Door closes in distance ] Danny.

[ Sighs ] What are you doing here? Came here to see you. Or are you gonna tell me to leave? Anna: You started without me. Just a little something to calm my nerves. Good lord, you’re beautiful. I didn’t realize I could still make you nervous. Well, you can. It’s been a while since we’ve done this. Exactly. So you should enjoy. Relax. No need to be so serious. With you, it’s always been serious.

Sorry I kept you waiting. Don’t apologize. Your work’s important. How are things at the pcpd, by the way? Complicated at the moment. There — there are rumblings that the heather webber case is going to be reopened. And then, of course, there’s the ongoing business of sonny. “Ongoing” is a good way to put it. He’s been a thorn in the pcpd’s side for decades. It got a bit more complicated recently because a former employee of his — a young man, dex heller — got accepted into the police academy. Oh, yeah? From the mob foot soldier to police cadet? That’s a hell of a career change. Yes. The other officers have been very quick to judge because of his former occupation. But I’m more worried that sonny will retaliate, you know, because he’s switched sides. Yeah, sonny’s not really a “forgive and forget,” is he? Why would dex risk his wrath by becoming a cop? It was my doing. I originally suggested that he should apply to the police academy because I thought it would be a way to back sonny off and protect the young man. But now I-I think the drive behind it is dex and his need to redeem himself. You can understand how powerful that is, yeah? Well, he could hardly find a better mentor if he’s looking for redemption. I mean, you’ve been spending your entire career chasing that. Why do

you think an apologyis not enough for finn?

[ Sighs ] I honestly don’t know. Like your reaction to kristina’s coming out, I shocked myself with what I said to finn. I thought I was long over all the hurt and anger about what happened between him and jackie. I was just grateful to have finn back in my life and be able to spend time with him and violet. I-I was blindsided to realize that I’m holding on to that resentment. Explain it to finn the way you explained it to me. He will understand, because I know that he still feels guilt about this, too. I thought we were long past all of that. What happened in the past happened. Pretending it didn’t happen is just giving it power. So just acknowledge it and just get over it and beyond it. Move on. I see your point. The fact that you two love each other is literally all that matters right now. You make a very compelling case. Anyone ever tell you you’d make a great lawyer? That’s your cue to hit me with your opening statement again. Really? I mean, are you in the head space for that? Absolutely. Come on. Give it a go, counselor. Convince me you should be reinstated. May it please the court. Well, then I guess we’re done here. I guess so. Agent cates. Ms. Jerome. Am I interrupting something? Not at all. Nina was just leaving. Ms. Reeves. I don’t think that we’ve officially met. Oh, I did see you at the metro court with carly. If I recall, you were wearing a lot less at the time. You seem to have gotten the wrong idea — I don’t think I care enough to really remedy that. Enjoy the art. Beware of the gallery owner. She’ll take you for all you’re worth if you aren’t careful. You two seem close. It’s been a very long day. So can whatever you came here for please wait until tomorrow? No, it can’T. I’m here about sonny. Ah, of course I like seeing you, but there are good reasons I told you not to come to the warehouse. This part of the neighborhood is very dangerous, especially at night. Oh, well, you don’t have to worry, you know. Yuri’s — he’s outside waiting, and no one’s gonna mess with him, so… this place is pretty cool. Does your mom know you’re here? Oh, it’s fine. Brook lynn has her running some last-minute errands for the wedding tomorrow. And so she’s dropped me and scout and rocco off at the quartermaines’. That’s right. It’s, uh, brook lynn and chase’s wedding tomorrow. Yeah. That’s why I’m here. Uh, grandma monica — she has a message for you. When I ran a search on you, what do you think was the first thing that popped up? My conviction for sec violations. Mm-hmm. Did you think I wouldn’t find out? I mean, popular notions aside, politicians do do their own research. I wasn’t trying to hide it from you. Well, because you wouldn’t want to open with that when you’re trying to sell me on the esplanade. It wasn’t relevant to the deal. And, yes, had I brought that up, it would have been the only thing that you were thinking about, and I would have gotten an immediate no on the esplanade. But I had to make you fall in love with the project first. Well, what makes you think I won’t pull out now? Because it’s a great idea for port charles, and if my name is an obstacle, we will just leave it out. Really. I’ll delegate everything to my nephew michael so there isn’t even a hint of scandal. Really? You would do that, even though it’s your idea? Of course I would. It’s not about me. This is about doing something great for port charles.

[ Chuckles ] It sounds like a campaign slogan. Look, it’s my home. This is where my daughter’s growing up. And if I have a chance to make it an even better place, why would I sacrifice that just for stroking my own ego? Well, it’s good to hear you say that, but fun fact — you can, uh, still be convicted and serve in the U.S. House of representatives.

So, uh, how is — how is monica? She’S… she’s pretty good. I mean, she still has pneumonia, but she says she’ll be back to normal by the summer. She just has to stay in bed and rest up until then, though.

[ Sighs ] Well, I’m glad she has you as her messenger. That’s why I’m here. Grandma needs you to represent her at brook lynn’s wedding. So, if my career has been all about redemption, what’s at the heart of yours? Crippling self-doubt.

[ Chuckles ] That’s funny. No. I-I think it’s the opposite. I think you’ve always believed you were smarter than everyone else. I don’t feel the need to analyze what motivates me. I don’t think I’d like what I find. That’s disappointing, to be honest. I think self-reflection is very good for the soul. Others have found plenty about you to like. Love even. Myself included. You know the whole story, don’t you? Yeah. The chip on my shoulder. How badly I wanted to fit in at the wsb, and when that didn’t happen, I went my own way, and I hurt a lot of people, did a lot of bad things for a long time. Which I know you regretted. Charlotte came along. She made me want to be a better man. But, anna, I don’t think that you can ever close the door on your past, not entirely. And so I compartmentalize to ensure that whatever I feel compelled to do… …doesn’t affect the things and the people that I love the most. What is it you want to know? Has sonny received any overtures from the other crime families? Does he have any theories as to why he’s been targeted? Well, I don’t speak for him. You’re gonna have to ask sonny these questions. Sonny won’t talk to me. Well, he doesn’t talk to me either. Not about that kind of stuff, anyway. I find that hard to believe. You were glued to sonny’s side the night of the warehouse shooting and have barely left it since. And you’re a member of the jerome crime family. You had mob ambitions of your own a few years ago. I don’t know what you’re getting at. But my business here is totally legitimate. That’s good to know. But I’m more interested in your relationship with sonny. Are you in love with him? Or are you setting him up for a takeover?

[ Scoffs ] How dare you? What’s your end game? Are you planning to walk away with control of sonny’s organization? What’s my end game? My end game is co-parenting a child sonny and I both adore. And you need to live with sonny to do that? Not that it’s any of your business, but I’m between residences. Sonny offered his place, and I took him up on it because I want to keep my daughter safe ’cause somebody keeps shooting at her father. Crimes you haven’t been able to solve, by the way. You can try to turn this around on me, but it’s obvious you know more than you’re saying. So consider yourself on notice. Sonny’s a person of interest for the fbi, and now so are you. So if you get the feeling you’re being watched… it’s because you are. I have stage 4 lung cancer. Hearing those words, getting my, uh… well, ticket punched makes me wonder just what I want to leave as a legacy. Mm? I got into politics to — to help people, and I want my seat to go to someone who desires to serve their country. But, um, well, the people in my party want me to endorse somebody who is either a-a crook or a moron or sometimes both. Well, that’s a tough position to be in. I liked what I saw when we were talking before. You have convictions and you’re not afraid to stand up for them. I believe you would use the office to do good things. Well, that’s very kind of you, sir, but I don’t think I have the pedigree for politics.

[ Chuckles ] Well, clearly, you can handle tough situations, which is good because politics is not for the faint of heart. Not to mention that you’re rich, which means, of course, that you won’t have to bow down to the, uh, lobbyists to get something done. It may be technically legal for an ex-convict to run for congress, but, I mean, who’s gonna vote for him? Oh, well… the world loves a comeback. And, you know, y-you’re kind of a cowboy hero. I think you’re a perfect fit for it.

[ Chuckles ] Even so, you need more than just a good story to win an election. Well, yeah, that’s true. You need me. “And so, after presenting all the evidence, I’m asking you to render the only verdict that respects the law and precedent and overturn my disbarment. Thank you.” What do you think? Well, with the caveat that I’m obviously not a lawyer… I’m asking for a rhetorical review, not a legal analysis. I think you’re off to a really good start. Oh. But it could definitely use some streamlining. My guess is because it’s so personal to you that you’ve gotten caught in the trap of restating your argument too many times in hopes of winning them over. That’s a good note. All right. I’ll take a look at it. All right. What about the logic? What about, did I make my case? Yeah, I think you have a really strong argument to overturn your disbarment. You’re clear and articulate. You have a great command of your subject matter. As far as I’m concerned, you have all the elements necessary to trial. All except one.

summation was missing? Luck. I wasn’t expecting you to say that. I got this medal in seventh grade. “Debate. 1st place.” Winning this changed the course of my life. It gave me the confidence to pursue the things I wanted in life. I’ve had it with me ever since — every debate, every big lecture, every public engagement, even when I was defending my dissertation. It’ll fit right in your pocket. And it’s guaranteed to bestow good luck on whoever holds it, which is why I’m giving it to you — because no one deserves a win more than you. Ah.

[ Chuckles ] No one wants to say no to a dying man. I mean, how would that look? If I endorse you, the rest of my party will fall in line, and then I’ll put my considerable resources to work making sure you get elected. I can’t say how flattered I am in your belief in me, but I-I mean, I’ve never even considered a career in politics. Well, get considering, and fast. I mean, it’s already may. We’ve only got a few months before the election. Look, if you’re not interested, I-I understand. I’ll move on, but I think you’re making a huge mistake. You could do some great things with a real chance of winning. Hmm? You might also want to change your name to quartermaine? We’ll talk. You care for a nightcap? Not tonight. Maybe next time. I’m happy to hear there’ll be a next time. My place? I’ll cook for you. Really? What? You want to find out? You have to show up. I look forward to it. You wouldn’t dare put me under surveillance. I already have. You’re bluffing. This morning, you dropped your daughter off at school. Then you had a long breakfast with sonny. Feel free to tell me what the two of you talked about. Then you went to the hospital, where you spoke to the chief pharmacist. Then you went back home, and then you finally came here to work. It’s a wonder the gallery is so successful, given the odd hours you keep. Bastard. You stay the hell away from me. I have been tasked with uncovering why sonny’s been targeted, so I will be using the full weight of the fbi to investigate whomever I want until this case is resolved. Monica said she isn’t well enough to attend brook lynn’s wedding, so she needs you to go in place of her. She knows you don’t like wearing a suit and tie, but says you can handle anything for just a few hours. All right, I’ll go. You will? Yeah, I mean, look, I can’t — I can’t argue with monica. And now you? Come on. It’s late. I’ll give you ride home. What about yuri? Um, I’ll explain to yuri that I can give my son a ride home.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Dramatic music ]

Eric: Unbelievable.

Donna: And in true sheila fashion.

Eric: We were rid of her!

Brooke: Not looking over our shoulders, wondering when she’s gonna strike next.

Donna: And now the witch is back.

[ Cell phone chimes ]

Eric: Sheila’s back. Surprise, surprise.

Ridge: What are you surprised about? This always happens.

Brooke: Uh, I gotta go now.

Eric: I can’t believe it.

Ridge: You okay?

Brooke: Uh, yeah. Yeah, just some, uh… overdue business I need to take care of.

Ridge: Okay. Just do me a favor, keep your head on a swivel. Don’t know what sheila’s gonna do.

Luna: I, um… I heard about sheila. You doing okay?

Rj: No. I’m not. She tormented our family for years. It felt nice to think she was actually out of our lives.

Luna: I’m sorry, rj.

Rj: Yeah, me too. Wonder how steffy’s feeling.

Zende: How is this even possible?

Carter: It’s crazy, right? Sheila look-a-like.

Zende: It’s unreal.

Carter: Yeah. So… how are those designs coming?

[ Zende sighs ] Still distracted, huh?

Zende: It has just been really hard to focus.

Carter: Oh, come on, zende. Hope for the future’s in this big transition right now. We debated pulling back funding. You’re telling me its key designer can’t concentrate? Dude, you gotta get your head on straight. I know you’re still conflicted about that night with luna.

Zende: I am.

Carter: You shouldn’t be. Her mother was wrong, zende. You were wrong. Case closed.

Zende: It’s not that simple.

Carter: ‘Cause you still have feelings for her. Can’t stop thinking about luna.

Donna: Okay, I’m– I’m sorry, but this still doesn’t make any sense.

Eric: Ridge, you said you would explain all this to us when you came over.

Ridge: Dad, I don’t even know where to start.

Eric: So it’s complicated. We can take it. What is it?

Ridge: Does the name janet webber mean anything to you?

Luna: Uh, so, when did you hear about sheila?

Rj: My dad told me right after he found out.

Luna: I wish I could’ve been there for you. God, I hate that there’s this, like, gulf between us.

Rj: Luna–

Luna: I know, I know, it’s– I know that it’s all my fault because of my mom and the mints and what happened with zende, but… I miss you. I really miss you, rj.

Zende: I know the pain I’ve caused. Luna is guilt-ridden. Rj’s livid.

Carter: He should be! Luna was under the influence, thought you were rj, but you knew exactly what you were doing. Yeah, she was happy to see you. She thought you were rj, your cousin. How you thought that was okay is beyond me, man.

Zende: At the party, I told her if anything changed between her and rj, I lived across the courtyard.

Carter: That’s not okay, zende! That is not okay. She is in love with your cousin. He is committed to her. He is deeply in love with her, and everyone knew that at the party. Man, you are falling for someone who is unavailable, and you need to shut that down. You gotta run from it.

Zende: Yeah. I know I screwed up.

Carter: Look, man, I’m only saying this because I’ve made mistakes, too. I fell for a woman who was spoken for, and it almost destroyed everything I care about. My friendships, my job. I don’t want that for you.

Zende: You’re being a good friend, and I appreciate that. Thank you for caring. Uh, thank you for keeping this to yourself. If uncle ridge ever found out…

Brooke: Oh. Carter, I need to speak to zende. Alone.

Zende: Carter knows. Apparently you do too.

Brooke: How you slept with luna and stabbed my son in the back? When you have chronic kidney disease, there are places you’d like to be. Like here. And here. Not so much here. Farxiga reduces the risk of kidney failure which can lead to dialysis.


farxiga can cause

serious side effects,

including ketoacidosis

that may be fatal,


urinary tract

or genital

yeast infections

and low blood sugar.

A rare, life-threatening

bacterial infection

in the skin of the perineum

could occur.

Stop taking farxiga and

call your doctor right away

if you have symptoms

of this infection,

an allergic reaction,

or ketoacidosis. When you hav e chronic kidney disease, it’s time to ask your doctor for farxiga. Because there are places you want to be.

If you can’t afford

your medication,

astrazeneca may be

able to help.

Donna: Okay, so sugar looked identical to sheila, and that’s who steffy killed in self-defense.

Ridge: You’ve got it.

Eric: All right, so finn and deacon rescued sheila, and now finn wants sheila to be part of their lives again?

Donna: And– and you said that finn’s connection with– with sheila deepened when he thought she was dead.

Ridge: Honestly, I don’t care about his mommy issues. He needs to take care of his family right now.

Eric: Look, finn has– he’s going through a very difficult time right now. But he has not forgotten who sheila is.

Ridge: Really? I talked to steffy, and apparently finn is calling sheila a hero.

Donna: What? A hero? What–

Ridge: The story goes she fought sugar to protect steffy and the kids.

Eric: Yeah, well, sheila’s no hero. She’d say anything to get closer to finn.

Ridge: And you know who knows that? Everybody. Except finn.

Eric: So, how’s steffy taking all this?

Ridge: She said it’s either her or sheila.

Donna: But finn picked steffy. I mean, didn’t he?

Ridge: Yes. But the fact that she had to give him an ultimatum doesn’t sit well with me.

[ Rj sighs ]

Rj: I miss you too.

Luna: But you still need time. Oh, god, I ruined everything. What we had was so special, and I– I ruined all of it.

Rj: Don’t– don’t say that.

Luna: It’s the truth.

Rj: None of this is your fault. Hey, look at me. None of this was your fault. You just accidentally took your mother’s drugs, and you weren’t in your right mind, okay?

Luna: It doesn’t change what I did, or how you look at me. You know, when we first got together, I told myself not to get my hopes up, because nothing is ever this perfect, and it’s only a matter of time before something happens. I was really scared in the beginning.

Rj: Scared? I didn’t know you were scared.

Luna: I didn’t want you to know. Then, I don’t know, one day you looked at me, and you told me that you loved me and that nothing’s ever gonna change that, and… my fears just went away.

Rj: Luna, I still love you. I just– um, I– I– I just– just need time to process everything that’s happened.

Luna: I hurt you, and I hate myself for that. I should’ve told you sooner. And it doesn’t matter whose fault it is, if it’s mine or if it’s not, because I ruined our relationship that night. The night that I spent with zende.

Brooke: Carter, I really need to speak to zende. Alone. Now.

[ Door closes ]

Zende: Look, I know what I did was wrong.

Brooke: Oh, wrong? Wrong? Wrong doesn’t even begin to describe what you’ve done.

Zende: I swear, I had no idea that luna wasn’t herself that night. I had no idea about the mints or that she’d have been altered in any way. I came back home from eric’s party, and she was in my bed.

Brooke: Oh, my god. Luna was the one that was drugged! Not you! You knew exactly what was going on. You were in your right mind. Rj is your cousin. How could you do that to him? You know how much he loves luna. And you betrayed my son. Your own family, for god’s sakes. My god, zende. You had no right, no right sleeping with luna. Depression is a journey. I’d made some progress on my antidepressant… had some daily wins in reducing my symptoms. But I was still masking my depression. So I talked to my doctor. She told me I could build on my wins, without changing my antidepressant.

Rexulti, when added

to an antidepressant,

significantly reduced

depression symptoms more

than an antidepressant alone. And less depression… that’s a win.

Rexulti can cause

serious side effects.

Elderly dementia patients

have an increased

risk of death or stroke.

Antidepressants may increase

suicidal thoughts and actions

and worsen depression

in children and young adults.

Report new or sudden changes

in mood,


thoughts, or feelings,

or if you develop

suicidal thoughts or actions.

Report fever, stiff muscles,

and confusion,

which can be life-threatening,

or uncontrolled

muscle movements,

which may be permanent.

High blood sugar which can

lead to coma or death;

weight gain;

increased cholesterol;

low white blood cells;

unusual urges;

dizziness on standing;

falls; seizures;

trouble swallowing,

or sleepiness may occur.

Donna: Why would finn even want a relationship with that

Donna: Why would finn even want a relationship with that woman after everything that she’s done?

Ridge: The kid’s lost it. I don’t even know what to do with finn right now.

Eric: It’s everywhere, genoa city, los angeles, everywhere. Sheila carter’s alive. Yeah, okay. Yes, we’ll talk again under better circumstances. Bye.

Donna: How did lauren take the news?

Eric: She’s– she’s in shock.

Ridge: Well, we’re all in shock. How does this keep happening? Sheila does whatever she wants to whomever she wants, and never has to pay for her crimes.

Rj: I don’t blame you for what happened. Does it hurt? Yes. Is my mind messed up? Absolutely. But I know that this– this wasn’t your fault.

Luna: Yeah, but still, it– it kills me to know that I hurt you. And what happened that night didn’t just ruin our relationship, it ruined you and zende’s relationship.

Rj: To hell with zende! You really think I care about my relationship with zende? He’s my cousin. He’s my family. And he stabbed me in the back, and he slept with my girlfriend.

Luna: I just wish things to go back to the way they were.

Rj: They– they won’T. Ever. Between me and him. Zende, he should’ve never touched you. ‘Cause he’s– he’s my family. He knew how much I cared about you. Just stop hoping that there’s ever gonna be a reconciliation between the two of us, ’cause there will never be.

Luna: No, I don’t want things to go back to the way they were for zende, or even for myself. I want it for you, rj. I mean, there’s– there’s been, like, this shift in you ever since I told you about that night. You always had this, like, joyful, playful, I don’t know, like, boyish quality about you that I always found so sweet, and that I fell in love with, and… it’s not there anymore. And it breaks my heart.

[ Luna sighs shakily ]

Brooke: This is a family company. A family that you blatantly betrayed. I mean, what would your mother think? You know what, I, uh– I think it’s time for you to leave. You should go to forrester international. No, strike that. Forrester antarctica.

Zende: I understand that you are furious. But with all due respect, I earned my place here.

Brooke: Well, I think you threw it away. You know that luna went to eric’s party with my son. She was on his arm. You know how much they love each other. Everybody knows that! Yet you still slept with her.

[ Huffs ] Rj told me not to say anything to ridge, and he did that because he didn’t wanna upset luna any more than she already is. That is the kind of man my son is. The kind of man I thought you were.

So tell me about

your heart attack.Our heart attack was… scary! Never want to go through that again. But we could. With heart disease, you never know. So we made changes. Green juice. Yeah, not a fan. Diet, exercise… statins helped. But our ldl-c (bad cholesterol)-it was stuck! Stuck! Just couldn’t lower it enough. And high ldl-c meant a real risk of another attack. So I said, “let’s ask our doctor about repatha.” What can I say? Listen to your heart.

Repatha plus a statin


lowers ldl-c by 63%,

and significantly

drops the risk

of having a

heart attack.

Do not take repatha if

you are allergic to it.

Repatha can cause serious

allergic reactions.

Signs include

trouble breathing

or swallowing or

swelling of the face.

Most common side effects

include runny nose,



common cold


flu or flu-like


back pain,

high blood


and redness,


or bruising at the

injection site. We won’t let another heart attack set us back. And neither should you.

Listen to

your heart.

Lower your ldl-c and

your risk with repatha.

Talk to your doctor. Breathing claritin clear is like…[] Feeling the breeze instead of feeling congested.

[] Fast relief of allergies with nasal congestion, so you can breathe better. Claritin plus decongestant. Live claritin clear. I could stand here and tell you if my prostate cancer wasn’t caught early, I might not be alive today. I could tell you that the cutting-edge research funded by the prostate cancer foundation has helped patients live longer with less complications. I could tell you all of this but really, it’s up to you. It’s your health. It’s your life.

Donna: Sheila could portray herself as a hero, but I– i think we all know better.

Ridge: We don’t all know better. Finn bought it.

Eric: Finn is vulnerable. He’s vulnerable to sheila. But his heart’s in the right place. His heart is with– with his wife and his kids. He made the right choice. He did the right thing.

Ridge: He shouldn’t have asked steffy about sheila being in their lives. Shouldn’t have asked her. Regardless, here we are. Gotta be careful again because sheila carter is back.

Zende: I really do care about luna, brooke.

Brooke: You say that you care about luna. But you didn’t respect that poor girl. You didn’t respect my son. You knew that they went together to eric’s that night. As a couple! You knew that. You know that they love each other, but it didn’t stop you. You jumped at her anyway. And you didn’t even stop to ask her what she was doing. Why was she there? If she’s still involved with rj. My god, zende!

[ Brooke sighs ]

Zende: I’m so sorry. I feel ashamed about everything that’s happened. I know how much rj loves luna. It was all a terrible misunderstanding. But we can put all of this behind us. Nothing more will come of it. I promise you.

Luna: Our relationship is, like, the most precious thing I’ve ever had in my life. You know, it was– it was so simple. There was, like, I don’t know, like, this sweet innocence to it. And it’s not coming back. I mean, that night changed us forever, and when I look at you, I don’t see the– the light in your eyes or your sweet smile. I see pain and heartache, and it– and it kills me that I did this to you, that I– I hurt someone that I love so much, and I’m so sorry.

Rj: Listen to me, luna. You don’t have to apologize. It’s okay. This is zende’s fault. It’s not your fault. Look at me. I love you so much. You’re right. What we have is precious, and I’m not gonna let this tear us apart. I forgive you. I forgive you for not telling me sooner about what happened. Let’s just move on. Let’s just move on, forget about all this. Let’s just focus on us.

Luna: I mean, you just said that you needed more time.

Rj: What I need is you. You know, we sat right there, and I told you that I loved you. I meant it. And I’m not gonna let anything or anyone get between us.

Hey, there you are. Oh, hi. I was looking all over for you. I was hoping maybe we could have lunch or something together. Uh, maybe another time. Sorry, it’s just been a really busy morning. Hey, uh, is everything okay? Yeah, no, I just, I have a lot of homework and stuff to catch up on, so I’m kind of stressed.

Yeah, yeah, I get it. Same. Okay. It just, it seems like maybe there’s, uh, something else going on, or

Fine. Tate, I’ve been really embarrassed you saw that huge fight between my mom and I earlier. Embarrassed? Why would you be embarrassed? No, I, I just, I hated seeing you so upset and not being able to do anything about it. Have you had any luck changing your mind? No. My controlling mother has decided I most likely am going to do drunks and die if I’m not past my purview.

So, she’s standing her ground, and she’s forbidding me from going to the prom.

What the hell?

Hey there. Uh, Hey! Tell her this. I just did a little shopping. A little? Oh. Okay, maybe I overdid it a little bit, but, why not? It’s the point of having money if you can’t enjoy it, right? That is right. That’s right. I just thought you were going to be at work. Yeah, well, that’s the beauty of being my own boss.

Make my own hours. So aside from a brand new crocodile leather jacket and some basic clothing items, I bought us a ridiculously fancy coffee espresso machine with the frother and, to go with it, two smart mugs where you can actually control the temperature from one’s phone. It’s insane. And, check this out.

Voila. Wow, that, that must’ve, that must’ve really Cost a bundle. A little over a hundred K. It’s got a lifetime warranty. Makes it worth every penny then, huh? That’s right, it’s an investment. Just so you aren’t envious of my new diamond crusted watch. Yeah? I got you the magic woman’s version.

Hey there. Oh my goodness. You’re home. Yeah, earlier than I anticipated, I know. Oh, how nice. You’ve been missed. Well, I missed you too, though. Alrighty, how was your trip? Eh, it was a lot of work. Hardly any downtime. Not a lot of sleep time either. Well, maybe now you can get some sleep in. Maybe even get some more down time.

No, not just today. I’m making this whole week a work life balance. I’ll spend a little time at the office, of course, but, um, most of my time is going to be focused on my kids. And my parents. You and Dad. Oh, that sounds wonderful. I did that on purpose. Referring to you and dad as my parents because you, uh, You’ve always been a mother to me, Marlena.

You are my mom in every sense of the word. And I don’t know what I would do without you. I mean, you’ve always, you’ve always, always been there for me. Cheering me on when I’m doing well and picking me up when I’m not doing so well. And I just love you so much. I just love you so much too. And on that note, I, I understand it’s a, It’s a little late in the day, but uh, Happy Mother’s Day.

I can’t believe it. Leeshan’s blood and Gil Carter’s fingerprints were both on that black book. This changes everything. And the lab. They ran the test twice, right? Yep. Same results. This clearly connects Gil to Li Xin and his murder. How do we prove it? It’s not going to be easy. But I’m going to do whatever it takes to get to the truth and to clear my sister’s name once and for all.

Hey, Stephan, I have some news. Could you keep it down? Okay, listen. I, I found a lead. Unleashon’s murder. What? Yes, and we might have enough evidence to pin the crime on the guilty party, which is definitely not Gabby. Okay, what exactly are you saying? Okay, what I’m saying is that the love of your life, A. K. A.

Gabby Hernandez DiMera, is soon to be exonerated and released from prison, which means, my dear brother, you, I’m soon to have your wife back, as a free woman.

Extends through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Holly, I’m, I’m sorry. It just sucks that you can’t go to prom. Yeah, no kidding. I just can’t wait till I’m 18 and can do whatever the hell I want. Yeah, I get it. My mom can be really controlling too. Did you tell Aaron, by the way, that you can’t be his date? Not yet, but I doubt he’ll care ever since. He’s totally into Sophia.

He’s totally into you.

Yeah. Hey, what’s going on?

Wait until you see the new convertible Ferrari I ordered, Teresa. It is the SF90 Stradale. What kind of alien language is that you’re speaking? Oh, no, baby, that is Italian. Take a look at this. How beautiful is she? She’s a hybrid. Oh. That must have cost us as much as those two new watches you got us. Uh, ha, ha, yeah, a little bit more than that, babe.

But I have dreamed of owning a Ferrari like this my entire life. And not just anybody can buy one of these. In fact, they are so discriminating over at Ferrari, Ferrari. They won’t even let a first time buyer buy a new car. Ah, boggles the mind. I know. So this one’s got 1, 300 miles on it, 650K. What? Are you crazy?

Probably. But I’m okay with crazy. And you know, if Victor was ever looking for a way to make it up to me for denying my birthright all these years, I think he definitely found a way to do it. So I’m trying to let go of any resentment I have towards my father for not acknowledging his son until after he was dead and buried Well, that’s good then that you are, um, letting go of all the resentment like you said Yeah Not totally but I’m getting there.

I mean my God, you know how it felt when I first found out I was Victor’s son Even knowing I might become heir to this whole massive fortune or whatever. I was miserable. I was depressed. Knowing Justin wasn’t really my father. A guy that I actually loved and respected. My brothers not really being my brothers and just knowing that I was pretty much lied to my entire life.

I just still haven’t totally gotten over the shock of that. Miss Sadness

still upsets the hell out of me, if I’m being honest with you.

But I’m a resilient guy. And kind of a material guy, so buying all stuff like this actually eases the pain a little bit.

I forgive you, Dad.

If I’m even looking in the right direction.

Let’s hope.

Brady? This is my favorite perfume. You can only get this in a little perfume shop in Chicago, so Your father must have directed you to it. I made him promise not to get it for you, so I could get it. Thank you. I’m actually, uh, I’m running out, so it’s, uh It is a perfect gift. I like perfect. You’re welcome.

You, you shouldn’t be thanking me. I need, I need to be thanking you more often. I haven’t always been grateful. I haven’t. But I’m, I’m, I’m so grateful to you now for everything you’ve done for me and my kids and my dad. See, I not only get to have you as a mother in my life, you make my father so happy.

That makes me blessed. You mean so much to me, so much to my dad, and so much to so many people in this town whose lives that you touch.

Happy Mother’s Day. Oh, God. Oh, I love you so.

Now that we have this new information, how about we go to the evidence room, pull everything that we have got on both Gil’s and Lee’s murder cases. Because now that we know that they’re connected, maybe we see something that we didn’t see before. My thoughts exactly. Let’s go. Alright, slow down. Tell me what happened.

Alright. Um, I invited Ava over earlier, and I just, I wanted to jog her memory, see if she had any clue about Lee’s murder and something that would exonerate Gabby. And, well, at first, she denied knowing anything about it. But then, while we were there She got a phone call from Harris, and he reported a bloody fingerprint on the black book that you found here at the bistro.

Okay, so blood and fingerprint. I knew that the blood had gone to the police, but you think it has something to do with Lee’s murder? Uh, I sure as hell think so, yeah. Yeah, and I think at this, um, after they analyzed it, they found Gil’s fingerprint and Lee’s blood. Okay. Wow. I can’t believe it. No, I know, I know, but let me get more specific.

They found Gil’s fingerprint in Lee’s blood on the book that belonged to Gil. Do you realize what that means? Yeah, it means that Gil is likely Lee’s murderer and not his. Gabby, not my wife.


I was just asking Holly if she would help me with my Spanish. Except I told him it’s like my worst subject. I suck at languages. Oh, well, I’m pretty good at them, actually. So, I could even tutor you, if you want. Hablo muy bien espanol. Yeah, yeah, okay, yeah, sure, thank you. We can meet after school today, if you’re free.

Today? I’m sorry, I can’t, I promised that I would help my grandpa back at the pub, but I really appreciate the offer. How’s your nose doing, by the way? Not broken, thank God, just a little sore. I’m sorry, again. It’s okay, hey, it was an accident, and Anyway, I’m sure it’ll all be cleared up by prom, which I am so looking forward to.

And I’m really glad you’ll be taking me, Tate. It’s gonna be so dope. Yeah, definitely.

So, all this money, you’re just gonna spend it? You’re not interested in opening up, like, a trust fund for future heirs, or Actually, I’m not even sure I’m gonna have kids. Really, I’ve never even considered myself, like, the father type. More the private jet, yacht type. Uh huh. But what about carrying on Victor’s legacy and his name?

I honestly don’t want to put that pressure on myself. Philip is still out there and plenty other Kyriakuses. Or Kyriaksai, right?

Do you know what that is? Oh, baby. This is my new drone. Your drone? What are you going to do with a drone? What do you mean? What am I not going to do with my new drone? Aerial photography? Drone racing? The possibilities are endless. Okay, yeah, but you know, I don’t think you can really fit that much more No, none of this stuff is staying here.

It’s coming with me when I move to the mansion.

Alrighty. Tell me all about your trip. It was mostly business. Work, like I said. Except for my little stop at the perfumery, of course. Yeah. I know you, I know you get to Chicago quite often. Um, I hope that you enjoy the town. You know, that you don’t just stay. Hold up in your hotel room for room service? I got out once or twice, but You know, the funny thing is, the last time I was in Chicago, I was with Rachel on a school trip.

And I have to say, it sounds nuts, but I think I prefer dining in a cafeteria with a hundred fourth graders than in some swanky restaurant with a boring business associate. Even, even, even devouring a deep dish pizza in my room. I know how much you love her. I do. I really do. It’s amazing how much that little girl can change in a week.

It is. She’s so smart. Precociously smart, as you know. Yes, I know she is precocious. And I adore her. And I wish you had more time with her. I mean, I wish, I wish you had shared custody. Yeah, me too. It’s driving me a little crazy that Alex is getting to spend all this time with, with Rachel. You know, I, I don’t, I don’t think that Alex and Kristen are serious.

I didn’t, I didn’t, I didn’t think they were either, but I’m beginning to wonder because unless it’s a pure act, they’re really demonstrative with each other. It’s, yeah. Well, there’s a bad visual. I’m sorry. Wipe that out. Tell me. What did Carissa think about it? She doesn’t like it at all. You know what? I don’t need her.

Why in the hell would Gil want to kill Lee? I mean, they didn’t even know each other, did they? Well, not that Ava was aware of. Lee wasn’t part of the drug ring. No, I, no, I don’t, no, I don’t know. I mean, but Gil definitely was. And just, just follow my lead on this. Alright. Gil showed up at the apartment not long after Lee died and attacked Ava.

Right, and that’s when Ava shot him to death. Right, yes, yes. But what if that wasn’t the first time that Gil wanted to get his hands around her? What if he was waiting for Ava the first time? And Lee just happened to show up and Found gill and then gill who wants to keep things clean Killed me. All right.

So gill was actually looking for ava and Ever really intended to kill Lee? Yeah, exactly. Lee just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wow.

Shoot, I gotta get to chem class and it’s way on the other side of school. Damn, that sucks. Yeah, I’m kidding. Super long walk. All uphill. I’m off. Okay. See ya, Sophia. Later? Yeah, definitely. For Spanish tutoring, right? Right. Later. Muy bien. No puedo esperar. Ah, whatever that means. It means, I can’t wait. See ya.

My God, I feel terrible that I told her that would be her date to prom. Why? You know she’s like super thrilled to be going with you. Yeah, but I’m not thrilled to be going with her. She’s cool, but I don’t know. I just am kind of dreading it. Pretending I’m into her or whatever. I just, I don’t want her to get the wrong idea.

Well, If she does, she does. And you have to be honest with her. Besides, it’s not like she gave you much of a choice. You know, when you hit her face with that ball. Thank you. Yes, that’s true. And unless we come clean with her about us, she’s gonna be really hurt that I’m not interested in her. But you know, we already talked about it.

It’s not the smartest move.

Tate? Yeah? I have to admit, I’m actually glad you’re going to the prom with Sofia. What? What are you talking about? Why would you be glad? Because this isn’t fair. What are, what are you saying? What isn’t fair? I mean, us sneaking around just so we can have five minutes alone together? I mean, you should be able to hang out with a girl with, with no restrictions or anything.

I’m sorry, Holly, I really, I don’t, I don’t understand what you’re saying here. What I’m saying is, Sophia is a really great person. So So I don’t know, maybe you should actually give her a chance. That is crazy. No, no, I, I don’t want to give her a chance. I want to be with you. And I want to be with you too, but I don’t, Tate, it’s kind of starting to feel like maybe this just isn’t meant to be, you know?

Brady, do you think that Alec is a bad influence on Rachel? Actually, I do. Yeah, I think, I think he’s shallow. I think he’s a womanizer. I think he, I think he thinks he’s God’s gift and just acts like it. I have to disagree. I’ve spent a little bit of time with him. I don’t find him shallow. Well, in any case, I don’t want any guy hanging around my daughter that isn’t me.

And if he starts spending more time with Rachel than I’m allowed to, That’s not gonna sit well with me. That’s gonna make my head explode. Okay, so as it stands now, Gil is most likely Lee’s killer. But how the hell do we prove that? It’s not like Gil and Lee are among the living. Reasonable doubt. I mean, that’s all we need.

Somebody’s been watching her Law Order, huh? I am a rapid fan. I’m going and speaking at Law Order. Ahem. What’s now? Well, we need a list. A list of everyone who worked here when Gil did. Starting with when Lee Shin was killed. Don’t make me get a warrant. Okay, if this has anything to do with the blood on the black book, you can have whatever you want.

How’d you know about that? You know, I remind you, I was the one who found it. I turned it into the police, so Harris filled me in. Commissioner, this is What we want, right? My wife free, your sister free, you and I, we’re finally on the same side here. So yeah, whatever you need, I’m willing to help in any way I can.

Okay, then. Let’s start with the personnel records. In the office. This way. You’re moving out? Hell yeah, I am. As soon as the Hortons move back home. You know, it’s huge as the mansion is, and it’s half mine, but, you know, east wing, west wing, ten bedrooms, it’s a little bit crowded for me. You know, between Doug and Julie being there, and Chad and the kids, I mean, it’s gonna be bad enough that I have to deal with Maggie and her new husband.

Aww, baby. Are you gonna miss me? Teresa, if you were worried about finding another place to live, especially now with the whole job situation, do not think about it for another second. You stay here as long as you want, I’ll continue to pay the rent. It’s pocket change. Oh my god, Alex, you don’t get it, do you?

What don’t I get? Teresa, what are you talking about? I’m I’m talking about me living alone in this apartment while you move into the East Wing, West Wing, 10 bedroom mansion. I don’t, I don’t want to live here without you, Alex. Oh. Oh, okay. Um. But seriously, that surprises you? Uh, yeah, it does. Sort of. Theresa, I thought you would, you know, would enjoy having more room to yourself.

I mean, we don’t see each other as it is, very much. You can have Tate over whenever you want. He’s got his own bedroom, for God’s sake. I thought you’d be happy about it. You thought wrong. No, that, that doesn’t make me happy.

Alex, I like being with you. I like living with you. I’m happy. Together. With you. Like, really together. Okay, Theresa, now I’m genuinely confused. I know, I know. I was giving you so many mixed signals and, and, I, I made you think that I wanted to just keep this relationship platonic. And now you’re saying that’s not what you really want?

No. It’s not ever what I wanted. Brady, I

think you should have an honest conversation with Alex about your concerns. Marlena, I did. I did. He assured me in no uncertain terms that he does not want to be a father figure to Rachel in any way. And I wasn’t surprised because the guy doesn’t have one parental bone in his body. So I believe him.

You’re sounding a little threatened to me. As if you think that the more time he spends around Rachel, it will interfere with the time you have with her. Exactly, yeah. Okay, alright. I’m gonna, uh, I’m gonna chill about this whole subject, alright? Because you’ve always told me, don’t borrow trouble. That’s my mantra.

I know, and I’m going to abide by it. It’s not like Rachel has said much about Alex. She hasn’t spoken of him. Which leads me to believe that they haven’t been spending a lot of time together. But the minute they do, the minute she says, Daddy, oh, Alex took me to this, this, this, this outing or this excursion.

I’m, I shudder at the fact of hearing that. Or, or he chaperoned my school function. I’m, I’m, you know, I’m sorry. I just, I don’t, I don’t like it. But I’m going to back burner this whole issue. I think that’s a very good idea. Me too. I’m glad you agree. So, what did I miss while I was away? Oh, Tate got his tux for the prom.

Oh, I remember seeing him all duded up. Oh, so am I. And I’m also very happy about the fact that he is moving on from Holly. Yeah. Yeah, I guess he’s going to the prom with Holly. Somebody named Sophia. Yeah, yeah, he, he told me. I don’t know much about her. But he said that she’s smart and, what did he say, fun.

Smart, fun. That’s good. Yeah. And, and I, I think he’s having a hard time being away from Holly, but I’m glad to see that he’s trying to move on. Me too. Especially considering, uh, apparently Holly and Nicole had a bad relationship. Big old fight outside of the bistro because Nicole isn’t allowing Holly to go to the prom.

Teresa told me about it. Apparently Holly was screaming at the top of her lungs or something. Well, I’m sorry to hear that, but I do understand that Nicole would be reluctant to have her go, especially after what happened on New Year’s Eve. And we all know about the peer pressure about going to prom and You know, getting wasted and et cetera, and et cetera.

Yeah. Well, it is, it’s an all night event and there is the, um, yeah, the window of time for the et cetera. Yeah. Et cetera stuff. It, it, it reminds me when I was asked to, to chaperone the last blast dance at Victor’s request, and I remember leaving that night thinking. I’m never having kids. I’m not dealing with this.

Well, you broke that little promise to yourself. Yeah. And I’m so glad you did. I’m glad I did too because I, I love those kids. Reminds me, I have a favor to ask of you. Anything. I want to set up a trust, uh, for Rachel and Tate. And I was hoping that you would, um, sign the documents as a witness.

Of course. Thank you.

Wow. This guarantees I won’t be very well provided for. Well, Maggie was generous enough to share some of the wealth from Victor’s will to the relatives that were seemingly cut out of it. This will take very good care. Okay. I’m Rachel and Tate’s future. I have everything I need. And now so do they. And my future grandkids.

They will be set for life.

So, Rafe and Jada are still searching, I take it? They are. Well, I hope they don’t find anything else to pin on you. They won’t. I run a clean business. Now Now, well, I guess it’s better late than never. And look, now finally you and I will hopefully get our fresh start. Right.

So? So. So we reviewed the files. Turns out most people don’t work here anymore. Hope we’ll track them down. Somebody’s bound to remember something. How long will that take? Well, I don’t know. This case is my top priority, considering it could lead to freedom for my sister. Your wife? Yeah, I mean, that’s what we want, right?

My wife, your sister, free. So whatever you need, whatever I can do, I’m all in.

Holly, I don’t, I don’t get this here. Are you saying that you want us to break up? No, it’s not that I want to. We were just Maybe it’s for the best. For the best? No, not, no, this is not for the best. In fact, it’s like the worst thing that I can think of. It’s the last thing that I want. Don’t make this harder than it has to be.

Holly. I don’t, I just don’t understand why all of a sudden you’re giving up on us. I don’t want to be with anybody else, but you and I have all these feelings for you, feelings that I. I’ve never had for anybody, I swear. Holly, I

Wait a minute. So you never wanted a breakup in the first place? No. Never. I never wanted that.

Look, Alex. You have to understand, I was really hurt and I was really embarrassed when I thought that you were going to propose to me and you didn’t. And then I overreacted and I tried to just act like I didn’t want to have anything to do with you by rejecting you. I remember it clearly. You didn’t answer my calls for days.

I know. I was really stupid and I, I regret it. Theresa, why did you reject me? Why did you push me away instead of just talking it out? I was just trying to play hard to get. You know, I just, I really wanted you to just miss me like crazy. I was hoping that maybe you’d see the errors in your ways and then you’d beg me to come back to you, but that, that didn’t happen, obviously.

And um, I just played a really risky game and it just totally backfired in my face. So you’re saying that you pushed me away when you were trying to do the opposite? Exactly.

But now I know that that was a really big mistake. And I’m not going to play any more games. I promise. Just please tell me it’s not too late.

I wonder when Maggie made the decision to share Victor’s fortune so generously. I think she decided as soon as Victor’s will went to probate. So Justin explained it to me. Why do you ask? Just curious. Hmm. You know what I’m curious about? How Constantine is going to feel about Maggie distributing all this wealth around.

Then why would you say that? Come on. You don’t think this guy is Just positioning himself to marry Maggie because he wants a big old payday. I do. I just hope that Maggie is smarter than that. She’s always been smart. She’s not easily manipulated, but I’ll tell you what, I don’t like this guy. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.

No. I don’t like this guy either. Well, the nightmare isn’t over yet. But we’re closer than ever to finding the truth and freeing Gabby. Thank God. So what do we do next? Well, so far what we have is circumstantial, not conclusive. But that’s okay. We just need to get Li Xin’s murder case reopened and, you know, cast doubt on the conviction.

Burden of proof lies on the prosecution. See? I told you. I’m optimistic that this will be enough.

Holly, listen to me. I want you to stop worrying about what is best for me because this is what’s best for me. Okay? Being with you. Being with you is what’s best for me, too. I just hate how complicated it’s gotten. And that’s all my fault. No, don’t talk like that. I don’t care that it’s gotten complicated as long as I have you I swear I can handle anything

Leaves the class I’ve gotta go I’ll finish this later. Okay. Yes

Maybe there is a way.

Do you have anything to say?

I mean, I’m just pouring my heart out and you’re standing there staring at me. I just, I need to know that you still want me. I want to know that you still miss being with me.

Theresa, I’m just I’m kind of thrown by what you just said. To be honest, I’m just feeling kind of confused by the whole thing. It looks like

I’m going back to the office. Is everything okay? Oh, sure. It’s just that Alex has decided to take another day off again. So when you’re filthy rich, you get to just phone it in and you rely on guys like me to do all the hard work. Okay. You do what you need to do. And thank you for the perfume. And for the talk.

Thank you.

Happy Mother’s Day.

John, I need to talk to you. About Maggie. I cannot wait to tell Gabby about this. It will really lift her spirits. Okay, listen, I know that Statesville has been rough on Gabby, but I think that we should hold off on saying anything to her. Um, do we know more? I thought you said you were optimistic. Well, I am.

But we still have to convince the D. A. to reopen the case. Oh, right. The esteemable D. A. DiMera, who hates Gabby with a passion. Not to hell with his feelings. He has no choice but to follow the evidence and the law. Let’s hope he sees it that way. Well,

thanks again for meeting me here, Ava. Yeah, it’s a good thing that, uh, Wendy and Fred left me their key while they’re in Hong Kong. But listen, I really do need to get back to the pub soon because I can’t let Roman down. You know, I’ve been kinda living on a high wire without a net since I quit the bistro.

Oh, you quit? I wasn’t aware of that. Yeah, uh, it’s for the best. Right. Well, either way, this won’t take long. Okay, good. I assume that Harris has got you up to speed on the lab analysis of Clyde’s black book? Yeah, he briefed me on that, told me that the bloody fingerprint was Gil’s, and The actual blood was these.

Right. So, as of now, the working assumption is that Gil stabbed Lee. The question is why. And the other question is Can you help us prove it?

Hey there, Thomas. Hi, Eric. How’s it going, buddy? Good. My school is testing on take your kid to work day, so we’re doing it today instead. Alright, so does that mean you’re going to be my boss? No. I don’t want to be the boss. I want to be a reporter, just like my mom.

Hey. Are you surprised to see me? Sorry, I thought you’d still be at the Spectator. I’m going back. I just took a break to hopefully see Holly after school. I’m hoping to mend some fences. Is she still around?

[ Knock on door ]

Daniel: Hey. Is this a bad time?

Lily: What are you doing here?

Daniel: Well, I texted you asking if I could stop by, but I never heard back, so…

Lily: Well, I’m busy.

Daniel: Right. But I checked with esther and she seemed to think that you might have some time in between your meetings.

Lily: Well, she thought wrong. I don’t have time for whatever this is.

Daniel: I wanna discuss the lawsuit. The arbitration date’s coming up.

Lily: Yes, I am aware of that.

Daniel: I think that if you and I could just talk one-on-one, you know, before this all gets completely out of hand–

Lily: There’s nothing to talk about. You’re suing chancellor-winters and we’re gonna fight back.

Daniel: Lily, you know this isn’t right. I’m not asking for everything. I am just asking for the pieces of omegasphere that are closest to my heart.

Devon: Gosh, dominic’s gonna be a little mountain climber, isn’t he?

Abby: Oh, my gosh, he’s obsessed with the monkey bars. It took a while for him to get the hang of ’em, but now he is a pro.

Devon: I know. Nothing stops him either. He’ll fall down, scrape himself up, get blisters and bruises.

Abby: Oh, yeah, he just dusts himself off and gets back up again.

Devon: Where do you think he gets that stubbornness from? You or me?

Abby: Hm. Okay, I might be a little bit stubborn, but you…

Devon: I know. I can take it to another level.

Abby: I think it’s a good thing, though.

Devon: Really?

Abby: Yeah. So, before you mentioned that there were some things going on at work? No, what is it? Was it mamie?

Devon: No. It’s, uh, billy, actually.

Abby: Billy, yeah. Of course. What did he do this time?

Devon: He told lily and me that jill handed over all of her power at chancellor-winters to him.

Abby: Wait, what?

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: All of her power?

Devon: All of her power. She’s taken a step back and he has control.

Abby: Okay, well that doesn’t make any sense.

Devon: No, it doesn’t make any sense at all. Which is why I don’t think jill made this call on her own.

Abby: What do you mean?

Devon: I mean that this feels like a move by billy to assert his control over us. And I’m not gonna stand for it.

Ashley: Hi. Well, hi. Fancy meeting you here.

Audra: Oh, look who it is.

Ashley: Yeah, so please tell me you’ve wised up about tucker.

Audra: Oh, my god, we’re back to that?

Ashley: I know, I’m sorry. I can’t help it. I really can’T. I mean, I just don’t understand why you’re so taken with him. Oh, well. I guess everybody has their blind spots.

Audra: Um, of the two of us, I’m the one with the issues here.

Ashley: You know what, here you are all by yourself, right? A grown woman ready to take on the world. So maybe you really have ditched that snake?

Audra: Sorry to disappoint you, but tucker and I are solid. We’re connected.

Ashley: Aw.

Audra: We’re actually leaving town for a bit.

Ashley: Travel? I love that. Where to?

Audra: You know where.

Ashley: No? Seriously, you’re going to… what? I mean, oh, I know, because tucker’s relationships always work out so well for him in paris.

Tucker: Hey, doc.

Alan: Ah, alan will do. Good to see you, tucker.

Tucker: Good to see you too. Leaving so soon?

Alan: Um, yes. I have business elsewhere.

Tucker: So, you’re just gonna leave your friend, ashley, in the lurch here?

Alan: Is that how you see it?

Tucker: Yeah. That’s how I see it. She needs help. Desperately. You gotta do something about it. Hellmann’s real mayonnaise.

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by… -you got this buddy.

-During an asthma attack,

Alan: And what kind of help do you think I can offer ashley?

Tucker: You’re the psychologist. You’re her friend. I am asking you to stay on top of this. Don’t go on your merry way now.

Alan: This matters a lot to you.

Tucker: It’s not really about me, though. Give her some insight. Give her some guidance. Be her therapist. Be her friend. Whatever. Just do something.

Alan: Look, I don’t think ashley would be very comfortable with me discussing her with her ex.

Tucker: All right, then consider me a concerned friend.

Alan: Okay. Well, what makes you so certain that she needs psychological therapy? There must be some kind of signs you’ve seen to bring you to this conclusion.

Tucker: Oh, man, I could give you a play-by-play of all her disturbing and bizarre behavior since our honeymoon in paris.

Alan: I know. I understand that didn’t end too well.

Tucker: No, it did not. She convinced herself that I would behave violently toward her. And it took her months to realize she was mistaken about that. But ever since, it’s been one wild personality swing after the other.

Alan: Well, people are entitled to their emotions.

Tucker: It’s deeper than that. I mean, given your profession and how well you know her, you have to have seen that. And her family is absolutely terrified for her. Has, um, uh, traci or jack approached you?

Alan: Do you think it’s possible that some of what ashley’s going through might be a result of your behavior, or…

Tucker: I will admit to you that I was not the perfect husband in the short time we were married. And I’m very sorry for the ways we hurt each other. We both made mistakes. Um… and I probably could’ve been a little more supportive.

Alan: Have you told ashley that?

Tucker: Alan, whatever is going on with ashley is not gonna be solved by a kind word from me. So, you can catch your flight or you can stick around and do something to help her. She is not gonna get well if left on her own.

Audra: Do you find this entertaining? Because I find it boring.

Ashley: Oh, I’m just trying to make friendly conversation.

Audra: Well, maybe you can find someone else to have it with. You know, someone you haven’t insulted a dozen times.

Ashley: I totally get that.

Audra: Look, lady, I am not trying to be rude, but I just don’t see the point. I– I don’t know what you want from me.

Ashley: I don’t want anything from you. I really don’T. I just– as you know, I think you can do better. I mean, tucker’s not worth the trouble. That’s all.

Audra: Yeah, for you, obviously. But tucker isn’t trouble for me. We have something real and honest and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever had before.

Ashley: Unlike anything you’ve ever had and that’s a good thing?

Audra: You know, you either don’t want to see how solid tucker and I are or you just can’t understand. But I don’t give up on him when things get tough. I don’t give him mixed messages or patronize him. That’s the difference.

Ashley: Wonderful. Love should be cherished and celebrated and I wish you only the best.

Audra: You know, maybe that visit from your therapist friend is helping. You seem a little more even-keeled.

Ashley: Alan, mm. He’s a charmer, isn’t he?

Audra: You might wanna be careful there.

Ashley: Oh, why?

Audra: Well, you know, the whole doctor-patient thing. Might not be the best idea to get involved with your therapist.

Ashley: Look at you. You’re gonna give me dating advice? Now, that’s adorable.

Abby: Okay, yes. I understand why you would be suspicious of billy. The method and the timing of the announcement is quite strange.

Devon: Yeah, I’d say so. Especially since jill hasn’t mentioned a word of it. And we’ve been on calls with her and in meetings about the daniel lawsuit and about mamie and nothing.

Abby: Okay, so what’s jill’s explanation?

Devon: Oh, we don’t get to hear it. You know why? ‘Cause billy told us she’s unreachable while traveling.

Abby: Okay, that is odd.

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: So billy drops this huge bomb and jill’s not even around to corroborate it?

Devon: Nope. It’s classic billy. To do something that’s underhanded with an ulterior motive.

Abby: Okay, look. Let’s say that billy is telling the truth and jill has handed her role over to him. Is it so she can focus on her personal life instead of business? She has earned the right to do that.

Devon: Sure she has, but she wouldn’t do that without talking to me and lily first. We’re her partners.

Abby: Well, that would’ve been a much better way to handle it instead of having it come through billy.

Devon: You think so? Yeah. And also, if she did do this, why blindside us? Why blindside lily? Those two are close. She put lily in charge of chancellor industries. Just gonna pull the rug out from under her like that?

Abby: I don’t know, but she must have a good reason.

Devon: But she also is aware of the tension between me and billy. So to just hand him power like this, a grenade like that, without warning me? Come on.

Abby: Jill is smarter than that. So she’s either being careless or…

Devon: Or she wants to go to war.

Lily: I don’t know why you don’t understand this, but omegasphere is not yours. It belongs to chancellor-winters.

Daniel: That platform wouldn’t exist without me. It was my vision and my direction that made it successful.

Lily: Yeah, your vision and your direction because of our offices and our capital and our resources.

Daniel: I made princess louisa for my daughter. I made it so I could feel close to her when she was far away from me. I–I made it to prove to her that I loved her. To prove to her that I deserve to be her father. Are you really just not sympathetic to any of that?

Lily: Just because you want something doesn’t mean that you’re entitled to have it.

Daniel: Well, I was hoping that maybe you had changed your mind.

Lily: Why would I do that?

Daniel: I don’t know. You know, I thought maybe just with a little bit of time, things would’ve cooled off between us.

Lily: Oh, you mean after you cheated on me?

Daniel: What happened between us–

Lily: No, nothing happened between us. I was gone, remember? Helping my daughter in california while you were sleeping with heather behind my back. And now you want me to do you this very expensive favor? For what? Old time’s sake?

Daniel: So you think it would be better just to punish me by taking away everything that I made?

Lily: You didn’t make it on your own. And you definitely don’t get to keep it.

Daniel: Okay. You know, I am sorry that I hurt you. I am. But we need to keep this separate.

Lily: It is separate.

Daniel: Is it? Because it doesn’t feel that way. It feels like you’re only gonna be happy if you crush me. It feels like this is just all about revenge.

Hey! Asthma’s

got you going through it?

Lily: We really shouldn’t have this conversation without lawyers present.

Daniel: Okay, look, if it’s not about revenge, then tell me. What is it?

Lily: Fine. I mean, I’ll– I’ll tell you, even though I don’t owe you anything.

Daniel: Please. Thank you.

Lily: You wanna maintain a portion of omegasphere and I’m not gonna allow that for the good of the company. It’s nothing personal.

Daniel: Okay.

Lily: And you signed a contract. You agreed to the terms in the deal.

Daniel: I am not hurting the company by asking for what I deserve.

Lily: Well, you kind of are, because we’ve invested a lot of time and money and resources into omegasphere and the games on it.

Daniel: No one’s disputing that.

Lily: And it’s of great value to the company.

Daniel: It is to me, too.

Lily: And per the contract, we own the ip. So, if we hand you back bits and pieces for free because you can’t afford to buy us out, that undercuts our bottom line.

Daniel: Okay. That’s what it’s about, right? The bottom line.

Lily: Yeah. Gotta start over from scratch. It’s gonna decimate what you created. I mean, is that what you want?

Daniel: I get it. You’re just looking out for the company.

Lily: Yeah. It’s my job.

Daniel: You know, you have a lot of logic and the law behind you, but it’s also something for you to hide behind.

Lily: Okay.

Daniel: Lily, I’ve known you almost my entire life. We’ve always had each other’s back. We’ve always been there for each other. We’ve even loved each other, and now I’m coming to you as a friend, and as someone who adored you, and I am begging you. Please do not take this from me.

Abby: Okay, I don’t think we should jump to conclusions or make any assumptions about what billy and jill are up to.

Devon: It’s kind of hard not to, given the circumstances, ’cause I know that jill has no reason to give up control.

Abby: And the way this whole thing was delivered, I mean, it’s definitely very odd.

Devon: Yeah. To say the least.

Abby: So, if it’s true, if jill really is handing all of her power over to billy, what do you wanna do?

Devon: I don’t wanna let my mind go there until lily and I actually have a conversation with jill. That’s what I’m gonna do.

Abby: You’re frustrated.

Devon: If this is real, yeah, I am.

Abby: I know– I know there have been a lot of changes at chancellor-winters recently, and it has been chaotic, to say the least.

Devon: Yeah. And it all started when lily went out of town. And billy was brought in, and then chance was brought in, mamie started causing issues. We’ve just never found our footing.

Abby: At least chancellor-winters has remained profitable.

Devon: Yeah, but how long can that last? You can’t do good business when management is unstable like this. What?

Abby: Through all the changes and the tension that it’s brought, how do you think neil would’ve handled it?

Audra: Believe me, I have no desire to interfere in your romantic life.

Ashley: Hm, much appreciated.

Audra: You know, not that I’m an expert on ethics, but isn’t it unethical for a therapist to be involved with this client?

Ashley: Alan’s not my therapist. We’re friends.

Audra: Oh, of course.

Ashley: Oh, don’t tell me you don’t think men and women can be friends.

Audra: Well, I’ve seen you with him, and it definitely looked more than just friendly.

Ashley: You think so?

Audra: I do. And I think I know what you’re after.

Ashley: What’s that?

Audra: You lure alan in, charm him, flirt with him, maybe even try to get him to fall in love with you. But it’s all a distraction, you know, because he’ll be too busy crushing on you to focus on your psychological problems. But it’s a con, and he’ll never see it coming.

Ashley: That’s quite the juicy plot you’ve cooked up, sister.

Audra: I don’t know, it can’t be easy to hide whatever is happening to you. Not with a psychologist hovering.

Ashley: Okay, look, is alan brilliant at what he does? Yes. And is he attractive? Yes. And have I noticed? Of course. But see, we’re not involved in a professional way, so nothing to be concerned about.

Audra: Well, I’m not concerned. But does that mean you– you won’t pursue him?

Ashley: Well, I’m always open to whatever the universe has in store for me. Bye.

Tucker: Ashley’s attitude towards me is constantly shifting. Uh… one minute, she will approach me and wanna reconnect with me and she’ll intimidate audra, telling audra that ashley’s the one that should be with me. And then the next minute, she’ll just reject me outright. She’ll lash out, she’ll imply threats.

Alan: You mean threatening violence?

Tucker: Yes, uh, audra told me about an incident where ashley seemed to be talking about herself in the third person, saying that she was out to get me. So, yeah, something needs to be done, and immediately. Someone needs to step up here, whether it’s you or her family.

Alan: Well, all of this, um, it does sound concerning, but it could be just a misunderstanding.

Tucker: I bet you’re good at poker. What hand am I holding right now?

Alan: I’m afraid I don’t follow.

Tucker: What am I thinking?

Alan: I don’t do parlor tricks or play games, tucker.

Tucker: Humor me.

Alan: All right. You’re guilty.

Tucker: As in, I’m to blame?

Alan: You’re worried that ashley’s suffering from severe trauma, pain she’s carrying from how you treated her, and you’re hoping she will seek help.

Tucker: Mm-hmm. And that would benefit me how?

Alan: Well, if ashley does get help from me or from someone else, then, well, you’re off the hook for having hurt her. A lot of new dry eye patients

Tucker: That’s an interesting take, doc.

Alan: You don’t agree?

Tucker: I’ve already accepted my responsibility for hurting ashley. I’m not entirely to blame here.

Alan: I’m sure that’s true.

Tucker: I really want her to get help and get better for her own sake and for her family. Oh, and by the way, I’ve moved on from her romantically. And I sleep very well at night.

Alan: Well, obviously, I’m not as good at reading people as you thought.

Tucker: But what about ashley? How do you read her?

Alan: I’m not prepared to discuss ashley with you.

Tucker: But…

Alan: Thank you.

Tucker: Did you forget something? Or have you decided to stay and booked another room?

Alan: Well, my business can wait. I’ve just arrived here in genoa city. I see no reason to rush off.

Tucker: Love it. So, you have decided to stick around and help her. That decision was made before I sat down, wasn’t it?

Alan: Was it?

Tucker: You’re good, alan. I sat here and gave you all this information and you just ate it up with a spoon, didn’t you? I like your style.

Alan: I wish you well, tucker.

Tucker: You too.

Devon: Neil would tell us that we need to cut through our issues and figure out how to work together or walk away.

Abby: But you don’t wanna walk away. You already tried to do that.

Devon: I would love to walk away. I really would. But I can’t do that. I can’t do that to lily. And our partnership is too important to us. And I– I would feel awful taking a step back and just watching everything that we worked for fall apart.

Abby: So, there’s no way that you and billy can work on things?

Devon: I don’t know how because billy’s not interested in changing his ways.

Abby: No way for the two of you to just hash things out?

Devon: Honestly, I don’t want to. I really don’t want to ’cause I feel like he is a threat to the company and he needs to be gone.

Abby: But if jill wants him in that role…

Devon: Then we need to figure out a clever way to get him out.

Abby: Now, I’m worried.

Devon: The only thing you need to be worried about is the damage that he could do if he stays. ‘Cause what billy’s doing is underhanded and I need to figure out how to undercut him in return.

Abby: Devon, that is not who you are. You do not play dirty.

Devon: Well, I am gonna do whatever it takes to protect the company, all right? ‘Cause this is war that billy’s declared. And if I don’t do something, we could lose everything.

Lily: Well, if I didn’t know any better, I would say that sounded like a guilt trip.

Daniel: I know that I’m pushing, but I cannot walk away from this.

Lily: There is nothing I can do.

Daniel: Just give me princess louisa. That game is like a love letter to my kid. Let me hang on to that and–

Lily: It’s not my call. The board voted to keep all of omegasphere’s intellectual property. I can’t just undo that.

Daniel: I understand that, but if you backed down, said you changed your mind, then other members might follow.

Lily: Well, there’s no guarantee.

Daniel: Oh, come on. Devon and nate, they’ll do whatever you think is best. Jill, she respects your perspective. So does billy.

Lily: There are more factors at play.

Daniel: Okay. They know this is about you and me and they are just trying to make this easier on you.

Lily: That might be your perception, but it’s not true. It’s about the company.

Daniel: Okay, well I still think other board members would follow your lead.

Lily: Listen, we have enough things on our plate right now.

Daniel: You’re stressed about something. You wanna talk about it?

Lily: With you? No.

Daniel: Fair enough. Look, I know I am asking a lot, but this is as big as it gets for me. I believe that we can figure out a solution.

Lily: Look, no promises, okay? I can revisit it with the board when it’s convenient and that’s all I can tell you.

Daniel: That’s all I can really ask for then. Thank you for that much. Right. Good luck. With whatever else it is that you’re dealing with.

[ Lily sighs ]

Jill: Hello, lily. Sorry for the delay.

Lily: Jill, what the hell? Did you really give billy all of your power behind our backs? It was one thing when my mom got alzheimer’s,

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Audra: You won’t believe this.

Tucker: Try me.

Audra: Ashley just wished us well.

Tucker: As in, I wish you well as I watch you plummet to your deaths after I push you off a cliff?

Audra: She said she hopes we have a wonderful life together.

Tucker: And how did this come about?

Audra: Well, I– I ran into her at society. At first, she told me that I could do better than you.

Tucker: No question about that.

Audra: Well, after I defended our relationship and connection, she backed down. She said she was glad that we were happy and had each other.

Tucker: I’m sure she is.

Audra: You know, it’s such a weird switch from before. When she insisted she was your one true love, you know?

Tucker: Mm-hmm.

Audra: You know, she’s all over the place emotionally. Well, I don’t wanna make it worse by giving her a hard time.

Tucker: Aw, such a kind person.

Audra: You know, maybe this shift has something to do with her therapist friend. Maybe he really is helping her.

Tucker: It’s possible.

Alan: Ah, hello.

Ashley: There you are.

Alan: I am so sorry. There was a delay in getting into my new room.

Ashley: No, that’s okay. I’m just so happy you’re sticking around.

Alan: Oh, me too. You know, um, I had a little bit of a run in with your ex-husband.

Ashley: Ah! He’s just such a selfish pig. Don’t you think? I mean, honestly, he just likes to hear himself talk and yap, yap, yap, yap, yap.

Alan: Well, he did seem genuinely concerned. I think he carries a lot of guilt over what happened between you two.

Ashley: Please. Tucker does not do guilt. He doesn’t do any emotion, really.

Alan: But he may care about you more than you realize.

Ashley: Well, poor him. I am only interested in better things.

Tessa: Can I help you?

Daniel: No. Uh, I’m– I’m sorry. I’m just a little distracted.

Tessa: Oh, that’s okay.

Daniel: I recognize you.

Tessa: Um, we have mutuals on social media. You’re summer’s brother, daniel. I’m tessa, mariah’s wife. Uh, cassie’s sister.

Daniel: Yes. No, all of that is true, um… what I meant is I am a fan of your music. I’ve actually played some of your songs on repeat.

Tessa: Oh my gosh, thank you. I– I really appreciate that.

Daniel: I appreciate it. It’s helped me get through some rough times.

Tessa: Well, that’s what music is for. Not to be pushy, but is now a rough time?

Daniel: That’d be an understatement.

Tessa: Well, I mean, I can’t play a song here, but there’s drinks and food to cheer you up. I’ve also been told that I’m a good listener, if you need someone to talk to.

Daniel: That’s okay. I’m sure that you’re busy. I didn’t even realize that abby had hired you on staff.

Tessa: Well, I’ve been told I’m a fabulous manager and also a good listener. So, I don’t know… why don’t you give me a shot? I might surprise you.

Jill: I assume that billy explained to you what’s happening?

Lily: Yes, but I wanna hear it from you. You’re stepping back and just giving billy control?

Jill: That’s right.

Lily: But why would you do that? Why– why now?

Jill: Because devon is determined to push billy out of the company.

Lily: Jill, I wouldn’t have let that happen.

Jill: Please, lily. Devon is determined to get him out. And I had to make sure that that wasn’t possible. And that’s why I didn’t warn you and devon about my decision.

Lily: Oh, so you just blindsided us. I mean, I thought we trusted each other.

Jill: Devon forced my hand. He has never given billy a chance. He’s never taken him seriously. Well, now he has to.

Lily: Because billy is the new you.

Jill: This move is binding, lily. And I believe it will help the company.

Lily: How?

Jill: By limiting arguments. Billy now has my role and my power equal to that of you and devon.

Lily: So where does that leave you?

Jill: I’m not walking away. I will still be available as an advisor.

[ Lily scoffs ]

Lily: And that’s that?

Jill: That’s that. So, now you and devon and billy will all be forced to work together. And we can get back to business.

Lily: No, jill. You are wrong. This is not a solution. You have made things so much worse. When you have chronic kidney disease,

Tessa: And for the record, I am a fan of yours, too.

Daniel: Really?

Tessa: Yeah. Princess louisa is the best. And it’s all your vision, right?

Daniel: It was.

Tessa: I heard you named the character after your daughter. Such a cool tribute. I write songs for aria, but it’s mainly about bath time and important things like that. But someday, I would like to write an album for her, about how much we love her.

Daniel: A love letter? I was talking to lily about the game earlier and that’s what I called it. A love letter to my kid.

Tessa: And that upset you?

[ Daniel sighs ]

Daniel: Well, I don’t know if you’ve heard or not, but I am no longer working for chancellor-winters. And since they own all the rights to omegasphere and its games, they are no longer mine.

Tessa: Oh, no. I’m so sorry.

Daniel: Mm-hmm. Lily and I aren’t together anymore. That ended badly between us.

Tessa: How badly?

Daniel: I cheated on her.

Tessa: Oh. Ouch.

Daniel: Basically, I don’t have a leg to stand on, but you know, I just– I don’t wanna let go of the work that I created. Everything’s pretty much just a giant mess and it’s all kind of my fault.

Tessa: Hm. I can relate to that feeling.

Daniel: So, you’ve ruined your own life, too.

Tessa: Um… yeah, I mean, it felt that way, but, ah, it all worked out. I’m just saying that I have plenty of experience of causing trouble for myself and the ones around me.

Ashley: I wanna make you a promise. I am never gonna scare you off again because I want you to stay around as long as possible.

Alan: Well, that sounds lovely.

Ashley: Good.

Alan: You know, tucker seemed intrigued that I was staying in town, too.

Ashley: Oh, yeah? Intrigued how?

Alan: Well, he seemed to think it was for professional rather than personal reasons. Started asking a lot of questions.

Ashley: Oh. Did you humor his curiosity?

Alan: I didn’t see a need to.

Ashley: Ah, good answer.

Alan: Tucker is the kind of man who, um, well, if he wants something, he thinks he deserves it. He’s entitled. And I, uh– I’m not inclined to help.

Ashley: I like that about you. But I don’t care what tucker says or what he does. I just wanna focus on what’s right in front of me.

Tucker: We have to move on from the issue of ashley. It won’t seem to move on from us.

Audra: Yeah, she’s suddenly all up in my face. I never know which attitude I’ll get next.

Tucker: All right, let’s let it go. Right now, okay? Let’s– let’s make a conscious effort to drop the subject of her. No more. Now and forever, right? ‘Cause I– I just wanna concentrate on us. And I wanna get the hell out of this town. Let’s book an earlier flight, right? ‘Cause we’re ready to– yes! We’re ready to go. We’re packed. Let’s do it. You dis– what, you disagree?

Audra: About this trip? Uh… you’re not trying to run away from something, are you?

Abby: I really don’t wanna think the worst of billy. And I hope his intentions aren’t as bad as you think they are.

Devon: Yeah, but what if they are?

Abby: If billy is doing all this without jill’s approval, then he would essentially be gaining more power and control for himself.

Devon: Exactly. And if he gets exposed, then jill will be pissed and lily will never trust him again.

Abby: Okay, but what would billy have to gain from that? He’s smarter than that. So before you draw up battle plans, you need to figure out what he’s really up to.

[ Phone buzzes ]

Devon: Well, this is lily. Hey.

Lily: Hey. Jill finally called me back.

Devon: And what’d she say?

Lily: Everything billy said is true. She handed him her control.

Devon: Wow, wow, wow. Um, okay. Uh, there’s something that I need to take care of first and then I’m gonna come straight to the office.

Lily: Well, make it fast. We don’t have time to lose.

Devon: All right.

Abby: Yeah, uh, go. Dominic and I will be fine.

Devon: I’d much rather be spending time with you guys than dealing with this.

Abby: I know. But what’s so urgent that you have to do that before you stop by the office? Please don’t do something that you’ll regret.

Devon: I won’T. I promise. I love you.

Abby: I love you too.

Devon: Gonna say bye to dominic.

Abby: Yeah.

[ Doorbell rings ] You must be isaac.

Tessa: Work and romance can definitely be messy when they intersect. Picture it. An awesome trip to san francisco to a music festival. Me and noah newman. Mariah and devon.

Daniel: Not you and mariah?

Tessa: No, we were very much not a couple back then. I was seeing noah. Mariah was seeing devon. And there was chemistry between mariah and me. But I was signed to devon’s label. Not selling well. And in some really deep denial about mariah. And in a truly brilliant move, I used her journal for inspiration without her permission. Yeah, that mistake cost me a job, a friend and a boyfriend.

Daniel: Wow. Yeah, no, that is a mess.

Tessa: Yeah. My whole world fell apart.

Daniel: But it didn’t stay that way.

Tessa: Hm. But I had help putting the pieces back together for the best life possible.

Daniel: Well, you know, if you could tell me how to do that, step by step, if possible. I would forever be in your debt.

Ashley: This is so pretty. Definitely one of my very favorite places.

Alan: Ah, it’s absolutely lovely. I– I saw that it was named after a woman named, uh, katherine chancellor. Did you know her?

Ashley: Yeah, I did. Somewhat, sure.

Alan: Then she must’ve been quite a powerful figure in town.

Ashley: Quite the mogul. Why can’t I remember ashley’s past?

Ms. Abbott: Because I want you to fail, you dumbass.

Alan: Are you– are you okay?

Ashley: Yeah, I’m just enjoying the sunshine. The company. It’s been a while since I’ve been so at ease, you know.

Alan: Ashley, I, uh–

Ashley: I really wanna kiss you. I’ve been wanting to kiss you ever since you first came to town.

[ Dramatic music ]

Steffy: The woman who broke into this house, who looked exactly like, and I mean exactly like sheila… that was someone else?

Finn: Deacon was right, all along.

Steffy: The person I stabbed, that– that was a sheila look-alike? That was sugar? What, this woman who was tricked into having plastic surgery, like what?

Finn: Yes, yes. Look, do you not realize what that means? Steffy, that means that you didn’t kill sheila. Isn’t that a huge relief? That’s– that’s a huge weight lifted. You didn’t kill my birth mother, after all.

Sheila: All right, I’m– I’m glad that you convinced me to go to the hospital.

Deacon: Well, I mean, it just made good sense, right? I know finn checked you out and said you’re a-okay, but even he was pushing for it.

Sheila: Oh, my two worry warts.

Deacon: Come on.

Sheila: No, come on, but you were both right. I’m– I’m glad I went, I got a much needed check-up. And I got to scare the bejesus out of li.

[ Deacon growls ]

Ridge: Well, you must’ve misunderstood.

Hope: About sheila, no, I’m telling you what I saw.

Ridge: No, no, it was sheila, I get it, I heard you. I don’t mean that, I mean the other thing.

Liam: How anyone could think this is good news? How finn could possibly think, with no evidence whatsoever, that sheila’s reformed?

Sheila: You wanna talk about serendipity? Well, li just happens to be walking down the hallway as I’m about to be examined. What are the chances?

Deacon: And you just couldn’t pass up the opportunity, could you?

Sheila: What, to give her the shock of her life? Hell no.

Deacon: I think a lot of people are gonna be shocked when they find out that you’re still kicking.

Hope: Finn has his reasons to believe in sheila.

Ridge: He has his reasons? What reasons?

Hope: Well, he’s apparently seen a different side of her that we don’t get to see. He’s seen her growth.

Liam: Well, that’s foolish. This is pure personal bias. It’s– it’s– it’s a childish need on finn’s part to think that his mother is not a psychopath so that he can have this– this relationship that he wants with her. Do I understand that on some level? Maybe, I guess, but it’s not reality, hope.

Ridge: The shorthand for that is animals like sheila don’t change.

Hope: And I thought that too. But seeing sheila and finn together, I don’t know, maybe we should keep an open mind. And, I will say, people did say the same thing about your son, ridge.

Ridge: I know you’re not doing that. You’re not comparing those two things.

Hope: No, of course not. I am just saying that maybe, maybe we should just entertain the idea that finn could be right. That sheila is a different woman.

Ridge: You’re agreeing with finn, aren’t you?

Finn: Sugar abducted sheila. She chained her up in a warehouse. And if deacon and I wouldn’t have gotten there when we did, I don’t think she would’ve made it.

Steffy: Do you expect me to be thankful? Am I supposed to be excited that this monster is alive?

Finn: No, but isn’t there a part of you that is thankful? We thought that you killed my mother. And– and yes, look, we had been getting through it. We had been trying to put it in the past, but look, we don’t have to do that anymore. You killed the person that hated sheila. She wanted to hurt you in order to hurt her. A crazy woman.

Steffy: Okay, so a crazy woman is dead now and I’m supposed to just rejoice over the fact that another crazy woman is alive? Don’t you realize that the danger is back now?

Finn: No, that’s what I’m telling you.

Steffy: And I’m gonna be stressed over this because–

Finn: No, that’s what I’m telling you. There is no danger. Okay, it’s the exact opposite. Sheila knew what sugar was planning. She knew that she was gonna come after you and the kids. And even though she was chained up, she tried her damnedest to stop her. She tried to save you, steffy. She tried to save your life.

Sheila: I think could it have been more enjoyable scaring the bejesus out of li like that.

Deacon: Scaring her? No, you didn’t scare her. She was furious with you, and by the time I got there, she was in full-on attack mode.

Sheila: No, she’s just jealous. She was jealous because finn refused to let me die in that old abandoned warehouse. Li would have, and now they say I’m the wicked one.

Deacon: You better get used to it.

Sheila: Hm, what’s that? People wishing me dead? Because I am accustomed to that.

Deacon: That kind of reaction. You know, people freaking out when they see you. Look, especially if you’re gonna keep doing those surprise, reveal back from the dead deals. I mean, here’s a thought. Why don’t you try something just a little more, I don’t know, subtle?

Sheila: Baby, subtle is boring. I like to go big.

Deacon: Well, then you better expect some big reactions from everyone else.

Sheila: I am. And I’m looking forward to them. Especially the forresters.

Ridge: All right. We all know about finn. His weird relationship with his mother. What about you? Where are you coming from?

Hope: I haven’t forgotten what sheila has done.

Liam: Well, I hope not, because your mom’s been one of her favorite targets over the years.

Hope: I am well aware of the many horrible things that sheila has done to people that we care about. I’m just saying it might be possible that she regrets it.

Ridge: Oh, my god. Do you hear yourself?

Hope: I’ve been trying to tell you that the night that sheila was kidnapped, sugar explained her plan to sheila. That she was going to go over to steffy’s house as sheila to harm steffy and the kids. And what did sheila do? She fought. She did everything she could in her power to stop sugar from going over there. She was trying to protect steffy, kelly, and hayes.

Steffy: Sheila tried to save my life?

Finn: Yes. The– the odds were against her, but she did everything possible to try to prevent sugar from coming to you. But as hard as she tried, she couldn’t stop her. Look, if sheila is still the monster that you claim her to be, she wouldn’t care if sugar harmed you. I mean, she would probably encourage it. But because she has changed, and she genuinely loves me, and she loves you and the kids, I mean, she chose to fight.

Steffy: Oh, my god. If I died that night, finn, sheila would’ve been blamed. Anything sheila did to fight off sugar, it was selfish. It was a way for her to stay out of prison.

Finn: She loves us more than her own life. That’s what she said. There’s no questioning. It’s– it’s true. I– I heard it in her voice. I saw it in her eyes. She would’ve died, steffy. She offered her own life to save you. Can’t you see– can’t you see that my birth mother has– she has changed? Offering her own life? That’s– that’s heroic. Sheila’s a hero.

Sheila: Okay, who do you think is gonna be the most shocked, ridge or brooke? I can’t– I cannot wait to walk into eric forrester’s home. You– you know, donna, she’s a screamer.

Deacon: No, not firsthand.

Sheila: Well, she’s gonna put li to shame.

Deacon: Sheila.

Sheila: Okay, come on, come on. The reveal at the hospital was brilliant. I– I wonder how we can recreate that. Maybe I go to forrester creations, ridge has got to do some alterations on a model, and boom, I’m the model that walks out.

Deacon: Does changed sheila really wanna focus on shocking people?

Sheila: Shock, not harm, and I’m not focusing on anything like that. There’s nothing nefarious here.

Deacon: Sheila, do you remember that nice, quiet life before sugar intervened?

Sheila: Yes.

Deacon: Yeah, I just think maybe you ought to give up the fantasies about scaring people and, you know, just go back to that nice, quiet life. You know, stop concentrating on getting reactions from the forrester, and focus on the two of us. On our future. On our engagement.

Sheila: You are no fun.

[ Deacon growls ]

[ Sheila laughs ]

Liam: Hope, everything that you just told us is hearsay. I mean, this sugar, she’s not available for comment, clearly. So you, finn, deacon, you’re all just– you’re just taking sheila’s word for it. The only thing that we know for a fact is that it wasn’t sheila who went and tried to kill steffy. That does not mean that sheila’s a saint all of a sudden.

Hope: Deacon and finn truly believe that sheila has changed for the better.

Ridge: Oh, deacon and finn they believe that she’s changed. Well, that’s good. But we’ve gotta keep in mind that everything she says is a lie. Everything she does is for show.

Hope: Well, for who? For sugar?

Liam: For finn!

Ridge: For finn! Of course for finn! He needs to believe that his mother has changed and that’s what she’s doing. She’s– she’s giving him all the ammunition that he needs. This may not have happened. No one saw it. But now we’re supposed to vote for mother of the year.

Hope: That is not what I am suggesting, and that’s not what I’m saying. Look, I don’t expect you to just embrace this idea. All I am saying is, can we try to maybe have an open mind when it comes to this? Especially knowing how important it is for finn to have sheila be a part of his life?

Ridge: Yeah. Well, that’s not gonna happen.

Hope: Why not? Look, I’ve– I’ve been spending a lot of time with finn, and I’m starting to understand his– his side of things. I mean, if sheila really has changed, if she is the type of person who would risk her life to protect the people that she cares about, why wouldn’t finn want to pursue a relationship with her? And by the way, that is exactly what finn wants. He is determined to have sheila in his life.

Steffy: A hero? You’re calling sheila carter a hero? That woman tried to kill us, finn.

Finn: Well, the– the woman who tried to save your life. When sugar told her what she was gonna do, she–

Steffy: Oh, my god, I don’t– I don’t care about sugar! I don’t care about her. She means nothing to me. We’re talking about sheila. Sheila. I’ve told you this so many times, finn. How she has terrorized my family. Look, what are you thinking? For generations. How do you not understand that?

Finn: No, I do. I do.

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Finn: I know the woman that she was.

Steffy: No, it’s generations. Generations, finn. That vile woman is a lunatic. She tried to kill me. And my mother. And my grandmother. I– I lost time with my mother. I lost time with you. God, she’s kidnapped people. She has killed people. She has poisoned people. And you just expect me to just move past that because of what? Some feeble attempt to get her stupid psychopath friend to– to try to kill me? No! No! She is not a hero. And I never want to hear you say that again. This skinny pop is so delicious. And only three simple ingredients. I never have to stop. Thomas, hold my calls! -And my texts! -Got it. And my emails. Don’t leave.

Sheila: Ah, this feels so good.

Deacon: You missed me, huh?

Sheila: Yeah. Here and– and there. Actually, I thought about you every single moment. Just hoping that I would get back to this, to you.

Deacon: Yep.

Sheila: I didn’t– I didn’t think that I’d be here again. But here I am, wearing this amazing, you know, imaginary diamond ring.

Deacon: I promise, I promise, I’m gonna do right by you, okay?

Sheila: Wow.

Deacon: Listen, no more secrets. No more pretending. I want the entire world to know how in love I am with you.

Ridge: Finn wants sheila in his life. In steffy’s life. My grandkid’s lives.

Liam: No, no, that’s– that’s not happening.

Ridge: Absolutely not. Steffy’s not gonna let it.

Liam: You’re right, she’s not gonna– just think about– think about everything that she’s had to endure. Being married to this man, all because of this– this primal tie he feels he has to his psychopath birth mother. And now he wants to extend an open invitation for sheila to be in their lives? Well, finn doesn’t get steffy then. Because mark my words, she’s gonna draw a line in the sand with finn once and for all.

Steffy: Do you hear me, finn? Sheila carter is a vile human being. She is not a hero. How could you even call her that? After everything she’s done to you. She left you in an alley to die. Me too.

Finn: I know her past sins, I do. But she has been working on reforming herself. Because she offered her life to protect you and the kids from sugar. That is a fact, steffy.

Steffy: Do not challenge me on facts about sheila. You will lose every time.

Finn: Yeah, but how about the fact that she’s not dead? And the fact that my wife didn’t kill my birth mother. That matters to me. Look, I’m your husband. You’re the most important thing to me in this world. You and the kids. But my mother…

Steffy: Oh, please don’t call her that.

Finn: My– my birth mother… she was such a mystery to me. I didn’t know her for basically most of my life until recently. And I– I thought I lost my chance with her. But now I have a second one. I’m sorry, I just– I just wanna help her. And almost losing sheila, that made me realize that I don’t wanna turn my back on her.

Steffy: But you have to, finn. I love you. God, I love you. You are such a good person. But your biological mother, she is evil. And you’re really naive to think that she’s gonna change. That she won’t bring devastation to our lives. She’s not gonna be in our lives, finn. She’s not gonna be anywhere near kelly or hayes. So, um… you can’t have both. It’s either her… or me.

Finn: I hear you. Of course, it’s you. Sweetheart, it’ll always be you.

That ball bounced off that guy’s head like nothing I’ve ever seen. You got quite an arm. Lethal. Okay, well, it was my first time playing doubles. But, let’s talk about the previous game. Where I totally wiped the floor with you, thank you very much. That’s because I told you my, my, my shoes are the wrong size. My, my, my toes were cramped.

It’s, it’s, it wasn’t even matched. I’m sure that’s what Djokovic says too. It probably is. Yeah. That shoesie’s crumbed my little toe. I like your joke about some fresh stuff. Ooh. Oh my god, speaking of cramps. What? My leg. Oh. I’m not used to running that fast. Oh my gosh. Here, here, here, here. Let me sort it out for you.

Oh, no, no, no, no, wait a sec. Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on. I’m very gifted. Okay, fine. Come on. Here. That does feel good. Is that, Is that easing up? Mm hmm, it is. And, um, I’m, uh, glad that we did this. Playing pickleball, no work talk. Glad you suggested it. Stick with me, kid.

Well, black book. The one Harris gave us. Thanks. The results came from the crime lab. And? Blood on the cover. They’re processing it further now. Oh my god, our first potential break. That it is. Yeah. Weston needs that book. He needs it to keep cash coming in while he’s on the lam. Unfortunately, I weren’t able to crack the code.

It’s a, it’s a cipher the department’s not used to seeing. Damn. Yeah. Okay, let’s hope that Harris has better luck with his Navy intelligence buddies. Mm hmm. How long have we been friends now? A long time. It’s been a while, yeah? Yeah. I often think back when we were at the convent in Italy. Sharing a room, making mischief.

Oh, do you remember those beds? Oh my god, it was like sleeping on porcupine quills.

Why’d you invite me over here, Kristen? Oh, I just, I thought that we could catch up. Ever. Remember when, chat? Yeah, I’m not buying it. Why don’t you tell me what you really want?

It was the look in Holly’s eyes, Eric, when she told me she hated me. She doesn’t hate you, you know that. She’s just angry, that’s all. I’m just trying to protect her. You know, the thought of her going to that prom and partying until wee hours of the night, it just triggers me into remembering that she I get it.

She almost died. I get it. And I understand why you didn’t want her to go. Well, I wish she understood. She will. Just Just give her some time to cool off. I’m sorry you had a difficult Mother’s Day.

Yeah, I knew it would be. I just, I didn’t think it would end quite like this. My daughter hating me.

Get some rest, my precious little boy. And when you wake, we’ll do tummy time, okay?

Well, this is how it’s always going to be. Daddy working with Nicole. You and me alone. Or is it all going to come crashing down?

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I’m gonna call the lab. Give them a nudge. You know what they say about a washed pot?

Hmm, you’re right. They’ll call when they have something. They will. Soon. Okay. And speaking for myself, I mean, after going through all of these, I am even more motivated to bring Clyde Weston and Goldman to justice. And what are these? Cold cases. Just boxes and files, just covered in dust. You know, some of these go back decades.

You know, and one day when you and I are gone from the force, I don’t want Clyde Weston to be found as a cold case by some rookie cop wondering why we dropped the ball. So you got them, the

DNA results. I don’t need to ask what they were. I know what the results are. It’s exactly what I told you they’d be. You weren’t lying. Not this time anyway. Nicole is that boy’s mother and Eric his father. Now the question is, now that you know the truth, what are you going to do about it? Who

is this guy? You were supposed to be here 20 minutes ago. Oh, I don’t know. Maybe we should try again later? Try again later, he doesn’t even have a phone. Oh, all right, well then maybe we should go back to

Maybe that’s him. Sir, you okay down there? I mean, is he Yeah, yeah, yeah, he’s, yeah, he’s breathing. Hey. Hey. Ah, he reeks of booze. Maybe he’s sleeping off a bender. Sir? Sir?

What I really want? Do I always have to have an ulterior motive? Well, come on. Kristen, it’s a little suspicious you inviting me over here out of the blue for some carrot sticks and hummus.

Okay. Okay, you’re right. You’re right, Eve. I need your help. What kind of help? I need, Ava, I need some information. Information about what? The murder of Leshaun. Do you often peruse cold cases? Like, uh, Javi? Well, it’s slow, I do. Slow? Yeah. Is it ever slow? There are some quiet moments. And personally, I hate when a case can’t be cracked.

I mean, just, just knowing how hard it is on the families of the victims. You know, not having any answers, closure. That could really eat away at you for years.

What’s eating away at you now? Bobby.

Mmm, so I think the veggie burger is new on the menu, and also the shepherd’s pie. You know what? I’m feeling, uh, I’m feeling like I’m gonna go classic. I’m gonna go with, uh, with a hot dog. You’re gonna, you’re gonna order the hot dog? Is there something funny about that, that I’m missing? Oh, it just, it just reminds me of our first first date.

Back in Seattle, remember? It was raining. We were taking a little stroll. We were sharing that broken umbrella. And then you saw that vendor outside. With the, with the hot dogs floating around in the greasy water. Oh, oh my god. And you ordered two. That was so disgusting. I remember that. I was sick for so long.

It was like three days of me watching old reruns of the World Series games and barfing literally every 15 minutes. Yeah. Wow. Yeah, that’s exactly what you did. Yeah. On that note, I think I’m going to go with veggie burger. Wait, you know what? I think I’m gonna get the hot dog. With ketchup. With ketchup?

What do you mean with ketchup? What do you mean? What do I mean? I mean that it is practically illegal in Chicago and surrounding areas to get ketchup on your hot dog. Fine. Fine? I will risk being arrested then. Wow. Wow. True rebel, huh? You know how badly I wanted to kiss you on the first date in Seattle. I was kicking myself when it ended.

I just, I thought it was too soon.

Honestly, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I don’t even know if it’s Even quite sunk in yet. Though, I am fascinated, Sloan. How did you pull this off? I mean, it’s no easy task. Taking a mother’s newborn baby. Faking said baby’s death so you could pass it off as your own adopted child.

I assumed. You had help in this rather ambitious endeavor. No, it was all me. All you? Wow, quite an accomplishment.

Not to excuse what I did or anything, but I was devastated after I had my miscarriage. Eric and I, we wanted to adopt, but, you know, there were complications. Because of my past.

And that’s when by chance or providence, Dimitri von Leuschner showed up at my door. Holding that beautiful little baby that Nicole had just given birth to on the side of the road. He was supposed to take him to the hospital. But he was a fugitive, so

He brought him to me, knowing I was Leia’s lawyer. So he handed me that sweet little angel. To watch over, to bring to the hospital myself. And when I saw that precious little innocent face, I, in that moment, I felt like all the planets had aligned, like I had been given a sign. I had a second chance. I was meant to be a mother, to help Eric raise his child.

So, how did you? Processed the baby through adoption.

I faked the paperwork, took care of everything myself. I’m a lawyer, remember? I know the ins and outs of the system. It’s weak points. And how did Leo find out? Your nephew is a loose cannon. That is how Leo found out. After Dimitri blackmailed me into getting Leo’s charges dropped, he told his devoted boyfriend all about it.

Right before he was sent off to super max

So Dimitri thought That that baby was mine And yet he still chose his weasel lover over family. What a backstabbing son of a Can we not talk about him right now? Can you just what is your plan for Leo?

I don’t get it. We were talking about cold cases and then A cold case that’s eating away at me. It’s Bobby, or more accurately, related to Bobby. How so? Well, when I met him in Seattle, he had asked me if I could help find some information on his mom, since I was a police officer. What happened to his mom? I don’t know.

All I know is that she left when he was a little boy. Hmm. Yeah, um, his father said that she just left the house one day and she never came back. Yeah, it was traumatic for him. I mean, there’d be, there’d be days where we would just be together and we’d be talking and he would just start looking off. And I knew that he was thinking of her.

It haunted him. Even years later. Kristen, other than the fact that Lee was killed in the apartment that I shared with his sister and my son, I know nothing about what happened or who else might have been involved. Hmm. Are you sure about that? It’s just, it’s curious. There were two murders, Lee’s and Gil’s, in the same apartment within days of each other.

Yeah. It’s a coincidence. The police looked into it. They found nothing. Hmm. Well, maybe the police didn’t have enough information. What do you mean? Ava, is there by chance anything you didn’t tell the police? Something you know useful.

Oh, don’t you worry. I’m going to take care of Mr. Stark. Good. When you say you are gonna take care of him, you don’t mean like you’re gonna hurt him, please. No, no, no, no, no, no. We’re just going to take a lovely drive into the desert where I’m going to dig a hole about. Six feet deep.

I jest. Leo will be fine. EJ, remember what I said. The only way our marriages can survive is for the secret to stay a secret. You already know what is gonna happen if Nicole and Eric find out. They are going to leave us like that. Don’t mind. But my wife is mourning the loss of a child she thinks is dead, who is alive and well, and being mothered by an amoral kidnapper.

Fine. Take, take low blow shots at me. I deserve it. But the truth is, is that Nicole is going through the stage of the grieving process right now called acceptance. Why mess with that? Why open a wound? Why open? Are you kidding me? This would be the happiest news she has received in her entire life. She would be ecstatic over the moon.

What kind of amoral bastard would I be to keep the news from her? That her baby boy is not dead after all. Well, if you don’t keep the news from her, then she and Eric will go and live happily ever after. So, in simpler terms, EJ, if you suddenly gain a conscience, then your wife will dump you and never look back.

Get it? So, what’s best for everybody, if this just Remains our little secret. You go live happily with Nicole. I raise my son with Eric. Everybody wins.

Hot mess. Zaddy? Are you putting me to bed again? It’s like deja vu. Putting him to bed again? I found him drunk the other night and helped him get back to bed. For that, I am so, so thankful. Yeah. So much so that I woke up the next day, I took the bull by the horns, and I got Oh, an application to become a licensed dental hygienist.

I’m just kidding. I started drinking again because Hair of the frog. No, that’s not right. Hair of the dog. No. Hair of the dog. Leo, what is going on? Why are you doing this to yourself?

You mean why am I circling the drain? Well, Nicole, it’s because the love of my life sent me a Dear John letter and has rendered my very tender heart broken beyond repair. Oh, Leo, your heart will repair itself eventually, and one day you are going to meet someone new. Someone who’s right for you and things will get better, I promise.

Did things get better for the two of you? It did. It did. Yes, it did. And now we’re both happily married and feeling fulfilled in our lives, right?

Sure, Jan. Whatever you two lovebirds say. I

love Nicole. She’s a wonderful and caring person. She deserves to know. But I don’t want to lose her. Perhaps as a compromise.

A compromise? I can take the baby and tell Nicole that’s her son. And mine. At least that way she’ll be raising her child. Oh, EJ, do you really want to be raising Eric’s son? That boy is going to grow up, he’s going to look like Eric. Sound like Eric. No, you’re right, I don’t want that. Of course you don’t, EJ.

Please let sleeping dogs lie. It’s just the most sane solution that we have here. It’s best for you, for me, for little Tude. It’s the best solution we have. Is it the best and most sane solution for Nicole and Jude?

I will say this one more time and I really hope that it registers with you. If the truth ever gets out to Eric and Nicole, there is nothing, nothing stopping them from being together. Ah. EJ.

That’s my little boy, Nero. I’ve raised him since he was born.

I love him with all my heart.

Please don’t uproot him from the only family he’s ever known.

It’s like, every time, every time, I try to do the right thing, it ends up being the wrong thing. So maybe if I try to do the wrong thing, it would be the right thing. Wait, what do you mean? I mean, Look, my heart is in the right place, I swear. Like, um, For instance, some years ago, I went on a date with this guy who looked nothing like his pictures.

In other words, I was being catfished. So, I excused myself to go to the bathroom. And when I was in the toilet stall, I snuck out the window. Which was the right thing for both of us. But the next day, he sends me a bunch of Expletive laden texts. See what I mean? No, I don’t. I, I just want to help you. You want, you want to help me?

How do you want to help? I want you to be happy. Happier. But I don’t want to hurt you. You’re such a good man. Leo, what, what are you talking about? What, what do you mean you don’t want to, what? But I mean, I don’t want to hurt you. Did EJ not tell you? What are you talking about? No, what? Oh, goodness. Oh, boy.

Oh. Oh, it’s like there’s two of you. Oh, jeez. Oh, did you say something? No, you said something. Who said something? You said What? Leo? What? Hey, Leo, what? Leo. Hey, what was EJ supposed to tell me? Leo. Oh my gosh, damn it. What the hell is he talking about? I don’t know. He probably did the same thing to me yesterday.

He tried to say something about Jude and then he fell asleep. What is going on? Why don’t we leave and let him sleep it off? Yeah.

Ava, please, whatever you tell me, I will keep your name out of it.

Gil came to the apartment with something bistro related. He tried to sexually assault me. I shot him in self-defense. He died in the end. Okay, so. After Gil was out of the picture, Stefan bought the bistro and Clyde used Gabby for leverage to force Stefan to continue to do Gil’s handiwork. Right? I guess.

You guess. Yeah. Listen, Kristen, your brother told the police already that he was working alone with Clyde. We weren’t close. We’re barely acquaintances, so why is he gonna lie to cover for me? Well, that is an intriguing question, isn’t it? I do not like what you are implying, Kristen. You’re implying that I was one of Clyde’s minions.

Hey, hold on, hold on. I’m not implying anything, Ava. You and I are old friends. I’m just trying to help my brother out. Not to mention, you and I are on the same page, are we not?

Well, that’s the most I’ve ever heard you talk about Bobby. At least in an empathetic way. Yeah, well, I guess I have hinted to you a lot about how much I detest what he did to me. Sorry if that got crazy annoying. No, stop. Come on. I’m always here to listen and have your back. Seriously, uh, you two, you and Bobby, you must have had some good times.

You did end up marrying the guy. Yeah, I did. Because when I met him, you know, he was, he was kind and intelligent and incredibly witty. But then I discovered that he just, he wasn’t the man that I thought he was. Yeah. Yeah, I get that. I am just happy that he finally signed the divorce papers and I can move on with my life.

And be with the most wonderful man who I love with all my heart.

Wait a second, you didn’t like that movie? What didn’t you like about it? It was boring. Way too long. Way too long. Come on. Why didn’t you say that at the time? Because you liked it. I didn’t, I didn’t want to insult your, your taste in cinema that early. Wow Wow, too long. It was two hours. Yeah, but it didn’t feel like two hours.

It felt Endless like it like it like it would never end Wow Yeah, yeah come and clean yeah You know, I I never actually thanked you for teaching me how to play that card game. From all those years ago, the one that I was playing here with Thomas and Chad the other night. Oh, yeah. They loved it. Wow. You still have your deck?

Oh, you bet I do. You, uh, interested in a match? Well, I might be a little rusty, but, uh I think I can take you. Really? Because I trounced you the last time. Yeah, but I sort of feel like I’m more prepared this time.

So many memories. I remember everything with you, Steph. Every single moment.

Bobby? Hey!

Who is that?

Everett? Did you hear me? Sorry, what? Do you know her? Who? The woman who just called you Bobby and waved. Oh, that. No, I have no idea who that is. Maybe, I don’t know, somebody back from Seattle or a friend of a friend? Small world, I guess. Yeah, small world.

Is this coffee third wave? Or that slop they serve down at Sweet Pit? It doesn’t matter if you’re a train wreck. Just drink it. It’ll make you feel better.

It’s not bad. Could use a little Irish cream. Oh. EJ, why are you here? You don’t remember letting me in. My God, how many sheets to the wind are you? What happened to Nicole and Eric? Nicole and Eric? They were here with you? Yeah, they were. They were. I remember because privately I wanted Nicole to leave. So that salt and pepper daddy That’s Not right now, Leo.

Okay, you need to tell me why they were visiting you. Why were they visiting me? Yes.

Oh, that’s right. I passed out at the park. I think they brought me back here. But I remember wanting to tell them something. The truth. I wanted to tell them the truth about you. And did you? No, I don’t think we got to that. Thank God. Why are we thanking God? Listen to me, Leo. You don’t have to know why. But I’m telling you, that you are never to tell Eric nor Nicole the truth about Jude, ever.

Do I make myself clear? Why shouldn’t they know? The baby is Eric and Sloan’s. Period. But biologically, he’s

In exchange for a lifetime of your discretion, you know. I’m willing to transfer a very generous amount of money to a bank account of your choosing. Wow. That’s like accidentally drowning after falling off your own yacht kind of money. Mmm. This is what you wanted when you came to my house yesterday, isn’t it?

It could all be yours. But only if you promise not to ask any more questions or utter another syllable about Jude, ever, to anyone.

Alright, I’m sorry. I took your question the wrong way. I’m just a little touchy about Clyde and Gil. Okay, I understand. Alright. And listen, if Gabby really didn’t Kill Lee. She didn’t. Even if she didn’t, and if I could help you find out who really killed Lee, I would. All right. I Lee never caused me any trouble and I happen to think the world of his sister, but honestly, there’s nothing that I can do to help.


Oh, what about this one? 1992, body of a woman, in her early forties, found in the woods, wearing an Argyle sweater. Never identified. No family, no friends, and no colleagues came forward. The news referred to her as, Argyle Sweater Woman. Let me see that. You know.

Commissioner Hernandez. Oh, the results are in. Alright, that’s great. What do you got?

Wait, are you sure?

Okay. Alright, that’s great. Thanks. What? The lab analysis from the black book. The techs were able to get a partial print off of it. Oh my god, whose was it? Clive’s guy. And the blood? Whose, whose DNA was it? Yeah, the blood, it was, uh, it was Lee Shin’s.

Poor Leo. I totally understand what he’s going through. Losing someone you love and wanting to ease the pain and, um, I know you understand that too, so. I do. Thank God that’s behind us. Yeah, thank God. You know what? Yeah. You are such a good friend. And being with you really lifts my spirits. I gotcha. Coffee toast.

Oh, I have two options here. I can be extraordinarily wealthy, someone who uses the word summer as a verb, who yells at his personal assistant, but then very quickly apologizes. Someone who pretends to like skiing. Oh, with the outfits and all the equipment, sitting in some lodge, having a hot chocolate, it’s such a to do.

Or I could be a person of integrity, someone who tells the truth. What will it be then, Leo?


transfer complete. Wise decision.

I hope so. But just remember, if you keep this promise, you will have a wonderful carefree life. All the jet setting, decadence your little heart could desire. But if you break that promise, I will make sure that you don’t have a life. Do we understand each other? We do. I mean, I do understand. Perfect. Good.


Right? It’s truly unbelievable. Alright, Harris. Yeah, we’ll talk soon. What’d he say? Oh, not much. He was busy picking his jaw up off the floor. So you think this means that That my sister didn’t kill Li Xin? I do. It was Gil. It had to be. So how do we prove it? That’s the burning question. Well, don’t you want to at least talk to her?

Why would I? To find out if she knew you from Seattle. Maybe she could Help fill in some blanks for you. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, maybe I will. But, you know, first order of business, I, um, I know that this isn’t a date. It was just, uh, two friends hanging out. But I’m having a really good time. And I was thinking, would you go to dinner?

Um, sure. Great, because I recently discovered this little hole in the wall sushi place in Chicago. You know I love sushi. They have this omakase dish. Um, you know omakase where the chef picks the fish for you? It is next level. Really, really next level. You would love it. Sounds great. Uh, oh, look at the time.

I’ve got to head out and get back to work. Yeah, um, I’ll text you. Yeah, sounds good. See you soon. Yeah, see you soon.

Hi. Again. Right? Hey, Bobby. Um, Sorry to ask you this, but How do we, how do we know each other? When did we, when did we meet? When did we, Two nights ago, right here. Right. Right. Of course. We had a drink, yeah. Of course. Of course we had a drink. And I obviously, I told you my name was Bobby. Yeah. Obviously.

Obviously. Yeah. I think I’m gonna have a lunch somewhere else. Later. Later. Yeah.

Yeah, okay. Okay then. Talk soon. Yeah, I miss you too.

Is everything okay with Harris? Uh, yeah, everything’s fine. It’s just, uh, quite a coincidence that, uh What? Oh, come on, finish your sentence.

Now, it’s just interesting that, um, you invited me over here to talk about Lee and Gil. Mm hmm. And? Listen, you can’t tell anybody about this, okay? Oh. All right, my lips are sealed. All right. Harris just got off of the phone with Rafe regarding some evidence they found at the bistro.

And what the lab found was, um, it was unexpected.

How was it unexpected?

And it proved you’re right about Gabby not being the one who killed Lee.

Good God. But you know who did? Yeah. I do.

I know who did.

Hey, there you are. Oh, hi. I was looking all over for you. I was hoping maybe we could have lunch or something together. Uh, maybe another time. Sorry, it’s just been a really busy morning. Hey, uh, is everything okay? Yeah. Yeah, no, I just, I have a lot of homework and stuff to catch up on, so I’m kind of stressed.

Yeah, yeah, I get it. Same. It just, it seems like maybe there’s something else going on, or

Fine. Tate, I’ve been really embarrassed you saw that huge fight between my mom and I earlier. Embarrassed? Why would you be embarrassed? No, I, I just, I hated seeing you so upset and not being able to do anything about it. Have you had any luck changing your mind? No. My controlling mother has decided I most likely am going to do drugs and die if I’m not careful.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Knocking on door ]

Sally: Hi. I brought coffee and muffins. I figured you’d be exhausted from your trip.

Adam: That is very sweet of you.

Sally: Come here.

Billy: Lily? Hey.

[ Billy sighs ] Hey, lily, it’s billy. Uh, can we meet? I need to talk to you about something very important. Asap. Thanks.

Chelsea: Hey.

Billy: Hi. I thought you were going straight to the office.

Chelsea: Uh, yeah, I was going to, but I just– I need to talk to you, if you have time.

Billy: Yeah, of course. How’s connor?

Chelsea: Things are so much worse for connor than we thought.

[ Chelsea sobs ]

Nate: I haven’t seen aunt mamie that upset in a while, if ever.

Devon: I think she’ll cool down.

Nate: I’m not so sure about that.

Devon: What were we supposed to do? Just let her keep causing issues?

Nate: It had to be said, but by all of us at once? I see how she felt ganged up on.

Lily: I mean, she did seem surprised we weren’t willing to push out jill and billy.

[ Phone pings ]

Devon: Well, I mean, she brought it all onto herself.

Lily: Like, what’s the fallout gonna be? Is she gonna cause more trouble?

Nate: I’m gonna go with yes. She obviously felt betrayed and made it clear she wasn’t gonna take it.

Devon: I think the easiest solution would be to buy her out.

Nate: You heard her. She has no intention of letting go of her investment.

Devon: That’s right. Well, I thought we had to fend off tucker, but it’s the internal threats within chancellor-winters that we have to worry about.

Phyllis: Well, looky here. Shouldn’t you be working on your super important case?

Christine: Ah, shouldn’t you be minding your own business?

Phyllis: I guess you’re drowning yourself in coffee and muffins because danny’s about to hit the road.

Christine: You don’t have to worry about me. I’m getting plenty of cardio these days.

Phyllis: Hm. Slacking off, I see. You know, if I were your client, I’d be mad. I would think I wasn’t getting my money’s worth.

Christine: Well, you couldn’t afford me and…

[ Christine laughs ] …I would never defend you. So, actually, I’m doing exactly what I should be at the moment.

Phyllis: Oh, my goodness, so I guess your important case wasn’t really that important after all.

Christine: You’re right about that.

Phyllis: You didn’t really want danny, did you? You just wanted to make sure I didn’t get him.


Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Christine: As usual, you’re shooting off your mouth without knowing a damn thing.

Phyllis: Oh, I know plenty. I know how to read you. You’re like an open book regarding danny and me.

Christine: Here he is, right on cue.

Danny: Hey.

Christine: Hi.

Danny: Hi. Phyllis, good to see you.

Phyllis: Good to see you, danny. I was afraid I wouldn’t get to say goodbye before you hit the road.

Danny: Yeah, finally hitting the road today.

[ Phyllis laughs ] In fact, I just said my goodbyes to daniel and lucy.

Phyllis: Oh, great, great. Well, I will let you guys say your goodbyes. You know, I bet it’s gonna be exciting going in front of all your adoring fans and washing the stink off of an old flame. Somebody who chose work over romance.

Danny: You didn’t tell her?

Christine: No, she was too busy reading me like an open book.

Phyllis: Tell me what?

Christine: Uh, a little plot twist. I turned down the case. I’m going with danny after all.

Nate: I don’t see aunt mamie as a threat to this company. Mad as she is, she wouldn’t do anything to hurt it. She’s as invested as we are, emotionally and financially. Her whole agenda has been to unite us.

Lily: [ Laughs ] Well, we were united, just not in the way that she hoped.

Nate: Look, aunt mamie doesn’t have the power to cause any corporate instability, even if she wanted to.

Lily: I mean, I feel bad upsetting her, but I think that, you know, we were right telling her to back down.

Nate: She came back to town guns blazing. Not just ready for a fight, but trying to pick one.

Devon: And?

Nate: And even though she’s on our side, she never really tried to work with you two. And I’ve tried to tell her that, over and over.

Devon: Yeah, she just came into town trying to call all the shots without ever getting our buy-in.

Lily: I think we were right to tell her that we all feel like she’s overstepped.

Devon: There is one thing that she said that I agree with, and that’s that we need to figure out how to get billy out of the company.

Sally: Talk to me. What happened?

Adam: The doctors at the residence are still trying to find the right medications for connor.

Sally: He has to be on more than one?

Adam: I don’t know. They’re– they’re not sure. You know, it’s trial and error. As they explained it, uh, they have to see how he responds. There could be side effects. You know, sometimes they augment drugs that they think could be helping, and then they have to take family history into account.

Sally: Sounds really scary. For connor and for you and chelsea.

Adam: Yeah, and it could be months before they know if it’s working. In the meantime, the drugs that he’s on are messing with his sleep. You know, there’s just so much at play, there’s so much that we didn’t understand. We were right there. We were so close. And we didn’t even get to see connor at all.

Chelsea: The doctor said connor is tired and groggy because of his new medication. It’s affecting his therapy sessions. He can’t concentrate.

Billy: It’s slowing down his progress.

Chelsea: His ocd is raging, billy. He’s not getting better. He’s getting worse.

Billy: Okay. Is that why they said that it’s not a good idea to see him?

Chelsea: They’re trying to understand the psychology of what’s causing these intrusive thoughts and then hoping that the medication will reduce them.

Billy: Yeah, I’m sure that’s a delicate balance.

Chelsea: Everybody keeps saying that. But if he’s this upset– we can’t even be in the same room with him. We can’t hug him, tell him that we love him. I mean, where is the stability they’re talking about?

Billy: It’s– it’s gonna come, okay? It’s gonna come. It didn’t get this bad overnight. It’s gonna take some time to– to work it out.

Chelsea: We are part of the problem. Adam and me. To know my son is in this much pain… that he would be worse if we’re with him?

Adam: The main reason why they couldn’t take the risk is because… connor started punishing himself.

Sally: Blaming himself for the thoughts?

Adam: Physically. He started punching his legs.

Chelsea: They said he has bruises… on his thighs.

[ Chelsea crying ]

Billy: Chelsea. I’m so sorry.

Chelsea: He’s in so much pain. So much pain. I mean, when is it gonna end? Is my son gonna be suffering every day for the rest of his life? Depression is a journey.

Lily: Look, I’m sorry, but I don’t think that ousting billy is the right move.

Devon: I bet you don’T. Why are you so loyal to that guy?

Lily: It’s not loyalty. But if we go after billy, jill’s gonna feel like we’re coming after her. And that’s gonna start a war.

Devon: So you really think that he’s more dangerous to us outside the company than inside?

Lily: Why do you always look at him like a threat in all the ways that he can hurt us? I mean, think about how he can help us. I know that you hate admitting this, but he actually has some good ideas.

Devon: Yeah, like putting his name on the side of the building. That was an awesome idea. How do you not see that the guy is just after more control and more power in the company?

Lily: Okay, you know, I don’t wanna talk about this right now. Billy actually texted me and said it’s urgent, so I have to go find him.

Nate: Just the two of you? No devon? What’s that about?

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: I don’t know, nate. I’ll find out when I go talk to him.

Devon: Huh. Well, that sounds like divide and conquer to me. I’m sure whatever it is, it’s not good.

Adam: I feel so powerless.

Sally: I get it. And maybe you can’t cure him, but you and chelsea are doing everything you can. He’s in a great place with leading experts on this. They will be able to help him. You have to trust that.

Chelsea: The doctors say if he continues like this… hurting himself, they’ll have to send him to this thing called “inpatient.”

Billy: But he’s in a residential facility already.

Chelsea: Well, they isolate him for weeks so they can watch him more closely. It’s– it’s what they do in cases of– of self-harm.

[ Billy sighs ]

Billy: Okay, look, well, um, it sounds like they’re on top of it. Okay, and– and I can only imagine how difficult it is for you, but there’s a treatment plan, so hopefully the medication kicks in and hopefully he stops hurting himself.

Chelsea: What if he doesn’t, billy?

Billy: I–

Chelsea: And they send him to this inpatient facility. His ocd doctor isn’t allowed to treat him there. So, he will be more alone and he will be more terrified. How does that help?

Adam: All of the advances that he has made so far… could backslide.

Sally: Hey, your job as his dad right now is not to jump to worst-case scenarios. Just try and remain positive.

[ Adam laughs ]

Adam: How can I do that? The doctors are already prepping us for this.

Sally: Does connor know what could happen?

Adam: No. No, not yet. But I already know if it comes to this, it’s just gonna make him feel even worse. I just– I know it. He already feels embarrassed and ashamed. They say he’s always trying to cover ’em up. He doesn’t want anyone to know what he’s doing to himself.

Sally: My heart breaks for him.

Adam: Yeah, and he told the therapist that he feels guilty that we have to pay for him to be there. As if that should even be a concern at all. He’s just– he’s terrified that he’s not gonna be able to fix what’s wrong with him. That’s how he puts this. As if he’s broken.

Billy: The doctors given you any sign of hope?

Chelsea: Just that they’re starting to get into the– the main manifestation of connor’s trauma.

Billy: Which is?

Chelsea: Basically that he has no self-worth. That he– he thinks he’s a burden on everybody else. I mean, how can he think that?

Billy: That’s the ocd talking. That’s not connor.

Chelsea: No, that is connor. Those are connor’s thoughts. Deep down. Haunting him.

Lily: Hey, I got your text. Oh, sorry, am I interrupting?

Chelsea: I’m sorry, I interrupted billy’s work day.

Billy: No, no, there’s no need to apologize. We can go somewhere else and keep talking.

Chelsea: Uh, that’s okay, I– I need to get to marchetti to approve some designs. Sorry.

Lily: Um, billy, uh, told me that you went to see connor, and I hope his treatment’s going well. I’ve– I’ve been thinking about him.

Chelsea: I appreciate that.

Lily: Yeah.

Billy: You sure you don’t wanna go get a coffee, anything?

Chelsea: No, I’ll be okay.

Billy: Sure.

Chelsea: I’ll see you later.

Lily: Are you sure you don’t wanna go with her? ‘Cause I’m sure what she’s feeling is more important than what you wanted to talk about.

Billy: Um, actually I think work would be a good distraction for her. And what I need to tell you can’t wait.

Phyllis: You’re going on tour with him.

Christine: It’s like you said, sometimes you have to put aside work for the people you love.

Phyllis: No, you didn’t put aside any work. The clients dumped you.

Danny: Uh, phyllis, I, uh, I would really love to go on tour, you know, on a good note. Right? You’ve come a long way. And I– I’ve seen the change. I’ve witnessed it.

Phyllis: I know you have. You see me, danny.

Danny: Yeah, and I’d like to go on tour with that phyllis in mind.

Phyllis: Is this for real?

Danny: It’s real. We’ve had more than one long talk about our lives, our dreams, our futures.

Christine: Our passions.

Danny: Yeah.

Christine: All night long, into the morning.

Danny: Some of the best and most important discussions of my life.

Christine: But our night was about so much more than just talking.

Sally: I wish I could take your pain away. And connor’S.

Adam: So do I. But I’m finally starting to get there is no easy fix. And the doctors keep saying it’s a long process. He’s gonna have to manage this for the rest of his life, and I just– I hate that. But the sooner that I can accept it, the more I can be there for him.

Sally: Sounds incredibly wise.

[ Knocking on door ]

Chelsea: Hey, sorry, I should’ve called, but I was on my way to work, and I– I just– I don’t know, I couldn’t face it. Oh. Hi, sally. You know what? I’ll just call you later.

Adam: No, you know what? Just stay.

Sally: I was just leaving.

Adam: It’s okay.

Sally: I’m so sorry for what connor’s going through.

Chelsea: Me too.

Sally: You two are doing amazing. I know it doesn’t feel like it, but you really are navigating this whole thing with a lot of courage. I know you’ll get connor through this. I will check in after my meeting.

Adam: All right.

Sally: Okay.

Adam: Sounds good.

[ Chelsea sighing ]

Chelsea: I’m a mess. Anyone says anything nice to me lately, I just– I just burst into tears.

Adam: Yeah, I get the feeling.

Chelsea: I’m sorry. I’m sorry to just, like, bust– bust in here like that.

Adam: Look, I– I– I’m glad that you came.

Chelsea: What sally said, I don’t feel brave. I feel just the opposite. You know, billy tried to give me a similar pep talk earlier.

[ Adam scoffs ]

Adam: It’s excruciating.

Chelsea: Yeah. Yeah, it is. It just makes it worse because it’s obvious I’m falling apart when I should be keeping it together.

Adam: I know. We’re supposed to be seeing the big picture and staying positive for connor’s sake and believe he’s in the right place.

Chelsea: When really, I justwanna ream or crawl into bed and just cry.

Adam: Yeah, and I hate that I keep dumping it all on her. And I resent the words of encouragement because in my head it’s all lies, but that’s on me. That’s not on her.

Chelsea: I do nothing except cry to billy lately. I’m sure he’s run out of things to say to me. I mean, when does it get to be too much?

Adam: And I know that this is killing her. Not knowing how to help. The truth is we are the only ones who know exactly what we are going through. We have to talk to each other.

Chelsea: But we didn’T. We didn’t talk to each other the entire way back from maryland. You were silent. So, I’m– I’m here because I wanna ask. Do you blame me for all this?

Devon: I do not like this one bit, man. I wanna know what the hell billy’s up to.

Nate: Asking to see lily alone, it does back up your suspicion he’s trying to work her in some way.

Devon: Yeah. Maybe he heard about what happened with mamie, and he’s trying to figure out how to work that situation to his advantage.

Nate: How would he be able to do that? He hasn’t exactly been on aunt mamie’s side. He even told her that he agreed with jill, that they see her as trouble. And aunt mamie wouldn’t buy it if he suddenly tried to align himself with her.

Devon: Maybe not. I don’t know, I just wouldn’t put it past the guy to work any situation to his advantage. That’s what he does.

Nate: Maybe part of what aunt mamie’s saying was right. That there’s a level of paranoia that’s starting to infiltrate our thinking. And it’s doing more damage to us than billy can.

Lily: Is this personal or about work?

Billy: Work, mostly. But, you know, maybe a little bit personal. But everything is around here.

Lily: Yeah, family business comes with the territory.

Billy: Yeah. Didn’t mean to make light of it, because it is serious. Um, look, I wanted to tell you this first before I break the news to everyone else because I feel like I owe this to you.

Lily: Why do I feel like I’m not gonna like this?

Billy: Well, I hope you do. Because we’re gonna have to live with it. Jill made a very major decision. She has decided to step away. And she’s handing all of her decision-making power to me. I told myself I was ok

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Billy: Well, I know you heard me, so you should probably say something.

Lily: I’m– I’m shocked. I mean, I– I didn’t know that jill was even thinking about something like this.

Billy: Neither did I.

Lily: Really? Are you sure about that? That’s not why you were trying to convince me to do a joint power grab with you?

Billy: Trust me, lily, I didn’t know this was coming, okay? I was just as surprised as everyone is going to be when they hear the news.

Lily: Okay, so, sorry. That– that’s it? She’s– she’s gone?

Billy: Well, I mean, it’s jill, right? She’s never going to really be gone forever, but she did hand the reins over to me. Of course, she’s going to keep her board seat.

Lily: And did she say why?

Billy: She did. She said it’s time for me to shine.

Lily: “It’s time for you to shine.”

Billy: I’m glad you find that funny.

Lily: I mean, this is– I– this is very, very suspicious.

Billy: Really? You think I’d make something like this up? You think I would lie about something like this, lily?

Lily: Billy, I don’t know. This is weird, right? It’s weird, why wouldn’t jill tell devon and me directly?

Billy: I don’t know.

Lily: I mean, this feels a lot like when mamie came to town with all of her secrets and the games that she was playing. I didn’t like it then, and I definitely don’t like it now.

Devon: Do you think I’m being paranoid to be suspicious of billy’s motives?

Nate: I’m not saying we shouldn’t keep an eye on billy, but now you’re all so worried about aunt mamie.

Devon: Well, we all are.

Nate: Yeah, and just a few days ago you were doubting lily, reading into her glances with billy. Upset that she voted against her and stating me on the board, thinking you were losing control of the company because she wasn’t necessarily agreeing with you.

Devon: Right, okay, I– listen, I get that you don’t mind that she voted against you, and you don’t think I should ever go against my sister. You’ve made that clear.

Nate: I’m just saying you spend an awful lot of time spinning conspiracy theories about internal threats. And I admit, I am guilty of that as well. I am not innocent here. But what if we put that energy towards building bridges instead of blowing them up?

Devon: Yeah, I mean, sure, I can admit that maybe I’ve gotten caught up in corporate politics.

Nate: Yeah, thank you. Thank you for admitting that.

Devon: For sure, yeah. I might be, you know, seeing threats that aren’t really there, or I’m exaggerating ones that are. Either way, though, I really would like to know what kind of bomb billy’s about to drop right now.

Nate: You and me both.

Devon: ‘Cause I doubt it’s about building bridges. So, why don’t we go stand side-by-side with lily, and hear what it is?

Adam: I– I don’t blame you for any of this. And I’m trying like hell not to blame myself either.

Chelsea: Well, the doctors tell us not to, but–

Adam: I’m– I’m doing my best to listen, okay? And I hope you are too. This is exhausting enough without us beating ourselves up. Oh, god, I’m sorry, I’m– that was a terrible choice of words, okay?

Chelsea: It– it used to just be a figure of speech.

Adam: I just don’t understand how this is happening. I don’t understand how connor is literally beating himself up.

Chelsea: His little hands– his little hands, they used to wrap around my– my fingers when he was a baby. The– the hands that we would hold while we’d help him cross the street. How can he be using those hands to hurt himself? And how is this not our fault?

Adam: Chelsea. Look, we can’t keep going there. I know it’s hard not to do that, but we– we can’t keep asking, “why connor? Why our son?” Blame is not going to get us any closer to figuring out how to help him.

Chloe: Well, I got your favorite, but you probably want to get a new one. It’s definitely cold.

Sally: Is that your way of saying I’m late?

Chloe: Well, look, I don’t blame you for wanting to put this off because you are busted. I found you out.

Sally: What are you talking about?

Chloe: I know that you have been paying our business bills from your personal account. Don’t deny it.

Sally: I had to. Do you want our company to flatline?

Chloe: We’re not there yet.

Sally: Our account will be tapped out by the end of the month. And look, I’m trying to buy us some time, so that we can survive, at least on paper, for a little bit longer. Maybe give us some time to find a solution.

Chloe: Look, I’m– I’m not angry. At all. I mean, I’m touched. But, you know, that is a really big sacrifice, investing your own money. So, this is going to be a loan. One that will be paid back.

Sally: I’m fine with that. I’m not looking to be broke and a failure. So… how do we find financing to save our firm?

[ Chloe sighs ]

Chloe: I don’t believe I’m going to say this, um… maybe adam’s idea is our best and last shot. Joining newman enterprises.

Sally: So, now you see the logic.

Chloe: Well, desperation brings clarity.

[ Sally laughs ]

Sally: It– it doesn’t matter. Victor shot it down, and he doesn’t seem to have reconsidered.

Chloe: Well, maybe we find a way to change his mind.

So tell me about

your heart attack.

Christine: After our amazing, earth-moving night together, I realized there was no other choice, and danny was so sweet. He kept asking me over and over again if I was sure. But I have never been more certain. There will be other cases, and I just didn’t want to lose out on our romantic momentum.

Phyllis: Seriously? You want to be a groupie?

Danny: Oh, come on, phyllis.

Phyllis: No, I mean, who’s gonna– who’s gonna know that you’re a hot shot lawyer? And you’re a do-gooder. Who’s going to know that?

Christine: I’ve been doing plenty of good for danny.

Phyllis: This is just a slap in the face for me. You know that I’m more than willing to show up for danny. And you’re trying to block me from doing that.

Christine: Phyllis. Me going with him has nothing to do with you. This is about us falling back in love.

Billy: Look, I don’t know why my mother does the things that she does, okay? But if you don’t trust me, why don’t you get on the phone, and call her yourself, all right? Might be a little bit hard to get a hold of her because she’s on a plane going to live her life.

Lily: Oh, that’s convenient.

Billy: Lily, do you really think I’m that stupid to try and make a move like this on you and my mother? I mean, what do I have to gain from that? In fact, I have everything to lose. Look, I get it, it’s a shock. But honestly, I’m not giving up on this opportunity. Especially when I believe that this company’s heading in the wrong direction with all the warmongering from devon and mamie.

Lily: Okay, please don’t go there right now.

Billy: Fine, not the best time to go there, because this news is going to be enough to process with everyone, and I get it, okay? Your brother, he’s not going to be happy about this.

Lily: I cannot believe that jill would make a decision like this without even discussing it with me first.

Billy: She should have, okay? But she didn’t, and we’re here now.

Devon: Hello. I mean, I assumed that me not being invited was an oversight. So, what’s going on?

Lily: Well, you might want to sit down, because um, it’s a shocker.

Chloe: There’s one way it could work. We enlist adam. Oh, my mouth even hurts just from saying the words.

Sally: Absolutely not. Adam is going through hell right now and I’m not about to pull him into our problems.

Chloe: Yeah, I know, chelsea told me about the troubles they’re having with connor. It’s terrible. But, I mean, it was adam’s idea. I mean, he may be up for the challenge. Maybe it would be a good distraction for him.

Sally: Not going to happen.

Chloe: Okay, so what about nick? He thought it was a great business move, and he could help us with victor.

Sally: That is the desperation talking.

Chloe: Okay, well, I don’t know what to tell you. I’m giving you all the solutions and you just keep on shooting them down.

Sally: You know what? Maybe this was a mistake.

Chloe: Wait, what do you mean? That we should just give up? That our partnership is over?

Chelsea: You’re right. We need a plan. A new one. Knowing connor thinks all of this is happening because he thinks he’s worthless, and not being able to tell him that’s not true because it’s not healthy for us to be in the same room with him right now. We have to figure this out.

Adam: Look, when I said that we need to get closer to finding an answer, I didn’t mean you and me. Okay, as much as I– I hate to say this, I don’t think that we are the people who can find that answer. We have to leave it to the people with the experience and the education in this.

Chelsea: Are you giving up?

Adam: No, I’m– I’m giving in to reality. Okay, our knee-jerk reactions and our parental instincts are not helping him. They might be making it worse.

Chelsea: So, it is our fault.

Adam: No, we are reacting the way any parent would, the way a parent does. Doctors have told us that. You know, they’re not surprised they have parents questioning their techniques all the time, because we want to help our son. You know, and I’m more guilty than you are. I mean, I’m the one who’s flown off the handle, and I wanted to yank him out of there.

Chelsea: Maybe you were right. Maybe he needs a new care team, a new facility.

Adam: No, chelsea, you were right. You’ve been right. Okay, you were the one that talked me down. You told me, “trust the process.” Well, I finally see it. Or I finally admit that I don’t know how to fix this, so we have to have faith in the doctors, and we just– we have to get the hell out of their way.

Chelsea: I know in my heart you’re right. Because I had to accept the same things, and trust that my doctors were going to help me.

Adam: Well, seeing connor go through this, it’s– it’s given me a better understanding of your struggle. And now I realize how much you had suffered before you got well.

Chelsea: That’s why I just want to take my son’s pain away. Because I’ve lived it. I can’t watch our son suffer anymore, adam. I really can’T.

Adam: I know.

[ Adam sniffles ] I’m jonathan lawson,

Phyllis: What? You’ve fallen back in love? Okay, I just, um– ah, great, I– I think I lost my appetite.

Christine: Are you sure you don’t want a muffin? You look a little pale.

Phyllis: No, trust me, I may never eat again.

Danny: Well, hey, um, you take care, phyllis.

Phyllis: Yeah, you take care. Listen, I’ll look after our son. I– I’ll try to stop him from making tremendous mistakes, unlike his father.

Danny: Oh, come on, please.

Phyllis: Really, no, no, it’s fine, it’s fine, at least, I know I’m not going to run into cricket any time soon. So, um, have a good tour. Have fun, um, what do you say? Break a leg. Ugh.

[ Danny sighs ]

Danny: Wow, I’m, uh– I’m really sorry about that. You know, obviously she doesn’t know you’re not supposed to say “break a leg” for a rock tour. That’s more of a broadway thing.

Christine: Okay, well, of course she knows. But, like, I don’t even care. Because nothing can spoil my excitement.

Danny: She is right about one thing, though, you know. Being on the road can be tough.

Christine: I am here for it. Our next adventure. On the road. And back. In love.

[ Danny sighs ]

Danny: Yeah. To the start of our next chapter together, my love.

Sally: No, you goof. Our partnership is not a mistake.

Chloe: Oh, okay. Well, thank you, geez.

Sally: I– I meant, maybe we made a mistake stepping outside our comfort zone. We know fashion. We’re great at it. Maybe we shouldn’t have drifted too far from our calling.

Chloe: Okay, wait a minute. Are you saying that we abandon our interior design business, and go back to fashion? Again? And– and with what capital? I mean, you’ve been dipping into your piggy bank. And what is nick going to think about losing his investment?

Sally: I– I don’t know, okay? I don’t have all the answers, I’m just starting to think about it.

Chloe: Okay, well, we’re running out of time, I mean, you said it yourself.

Sally: Yeah, which is exactly why we have to make a move fast or nick will lose his investment for sure, and we will be out of a job, so, we have to be proactive and we do not need nick or victor or adam to do it, okay? We are smart, we are experienced and we are creative. We can dig ourselves out of this hole on our own, okay? Are you with me?

Chloe: A hundred percent. But we are going to need damn big shovels.

[ Sally chuckles ]

[ Chelsea sighs ]

Chelsea: Sorry. Sorry, I lost it. I seem to be doing that a lot lately.

Adam: Well, your way of losing it is a lot better than mine. It’s a lot less destructive.

Chelsea: Yeah, I was actually impressed you really held it together when our visit fell apart. I was– I was expecting you to run past those doctors, find connor, and make a run for it.

Adam: Well, I may have checked the exits, and looked for a way to dodge security, you know?

Chelsea: Well, who knew? You were the calm one.

Adam: A rare occurrence. I really do mean it, though. We have to trust the doctors. Pulling connor out now would mean we would have to start all over, and that’s not fair to him. And I don’t think we could take it as a family. The only real option is forward.

Devon: So this is not a joke. That’s what you’re saying. Jill’s out, billy’s in, no one discussed it with her partners?

Billy: That about sums it up.

Devon: Is this another one of your power plays, billy?

Lily: Okay, let’s not make accusations until we talk to jill.

Devon: Well, apparently that’s impossible to do because she’s unreachable and traveling the world, right?

Billy: I get it, okay? I was just as surprised as you are. But it’s happening, so we’re just gonna have to make it work.

Devon: No, we don’t have to do anything, actually, until we speak to your mom. We’re not just gonna let you get away with this.

Continued any further without them seeing each other for who they ar that we have avorite vintage. Enjoy. Hey, so, I need to let the chef know that we have a party of six coming in, and they’re celebrating their parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. Okay. So I want to have some white-chocolate mousse sent out to them with some raspberry coulis, compliments of the hotel. Fantastic. I’ll let them know. Great. Oh. And somebody’s here to see you. Thank you. Commissioner. Can I get you a table? Oh, no. Thank you. I don’t need a reservation. Need some answers. Could you explain to me why you went to visit jack brennan in pentonville? Hey, michael. Michael: Hey. Did you have dinner? I can heat something up for you. I’m just scoping out recipes. No, no, you’re fine. I grabbed something to eat when I got home from work. You take a break. You’ve earned it. Your cooking is getting rave reviews from the adults and kids alike, and you know how hard the kids are to please, so… well, in this case, it’s the adults that have me digging through recipes. Well, I have not heard any complaints from them. So you’re doing great. Well, if they’re happy, I’m happy. They are thrilled.

[ Laughs ] Not only is olivia less stressed, but we’re getting regular meals, and we still have access to our own kitchen, so you are the perfect cook. Well, I am very glad that someone thinks so. You know, I am, um — I am a little surprised that you did take the job, though. Yeah? Why? ‘Cause I used to be a glamorous spokesmodel? Uh, ’cause, um… well, because of you and me. Nice ride, tracy. You have a great seat. Anyone ever told you that?

[ Horse neighs ] Not in a while. That is a great saddle. Thank you for letting me try it. Yeah, no problem. Expecting someone? Yeah, I thought I was, but now I think I’m getting stood up. Who would do that to you? Tracy! Sorry I’m late. Stella: Ah!

[ Laughs ]

[ Laughs ] Go ahead. Thanks. You just worked a full shift at G.H. Are you sure you don’t want to just soak in a hot bath, order in, watch one of your favorite shows? Don’t try to back out of our movie date with a sweet attempt to find something else for me to do. You can’t stay cooped up in this gallery all day surrounded by… nice style. Different style of art. Well, that’s called the “ode to duchamp.” Yeah. Mm-hmm. I know art is subjective and expensive. That’s how ava stays in business.

[ Chuckles ] You know, your great-grandmother, she used to say, “a fool and his money are soon parted.” ‘Cause our father was always coming home with these get-rich-quick schemes. I’ll tell you about ’em someday.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I can’t wait. And… I just want to say… I know what you’re doing. And I want to let you know… that it’s working. Are you sure about this? I don’t know. I — maybe this is a mistake. You know, the last few times that willow and i have been together, we’ve actually parted ways without things deteriorating. I don’t know. I don’t want to push it. I really don’T. And I don’t want willow to think that we’re handling her in a certain way. Would you calm down and stick to the program?

[ Sighs ] I’m your boss. I called you in to talk about crimson. Don’t worry about it. I got everything else handled. Drew, this psa copy looks great. I hope I can do it…justice. Nina. Hi, willow. What are you doing here?

Were just wrappingup some crimson business. Did I answer all your questions about the new accounting system? Hm! Okay. Good. I’ll make sure I speak to the software engineers and I express the rest of your concerns, okay? Thank you. Thank you, drew. Uh, lots of changes since I’ve been back. Absolutely. Sure is. And my door is always open. You guys can wrap up. I can step outside and go over this copy. No! No, no, no. Stay. Stay. Um, willow is prepping for her very first psa for the new tomorrow institute. Yes! That is really, really great! I-I’m so proud of aurora for supporting such a worthy cause… and you for being the spokesperson.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Well… I’ll leave you to it. Hey. Hold on a second. I just had a brilliant idea. Would you mind sitting in? What do you mean, you know what I’m doing? You act like I have some ulterior motive for trying to spend time with you. Well, don’t you? The last time we went on a coffee date, you were worried about how I was handling losing spencer. And I took your advice. And I tried to do something meaningful that helped me get closure. Did it help? A bit. But I’m no closer to knowing what to do with myself. I know, honey. I do see you trying and I see you struggling. I just wish I could wave a magic wand and take all the hurt away. Me too. Josslyn is your great friend. And keeping yourself busy here at the gallery. But sometimes you just need a hug and a shoulder to lean on him and… so here I am, baby. Thank you.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, we got to keep going, right? Yeah. 15 grand, huh? Yeah. A-ha! No accounting for taste. Aunt stella!

[ Stella and trina laughing ] Hello, ladies. Hey, jordan. Hey, jordan. Hey. I am really glad to see you both so happy. But I’m sorry to say I am about to be a buzzkill. So this is an interrogation? Well, I’m just curious as to why you would visit your attempted abductor in prison. So I have to check my comings and goings with the pcpd? Maybe, when you’re talking to the former head of the wsb… and pikeman security group. Has that been confirmed? Brennan was head of pikeman? Working theory. I’ve answered your question. Now you answer mine. You know, last time you came knocking on my door with the third degree, you and agent cates accused me of harboring a criminal. Don’t you have better things to do with your time? I do. I have to run a hotel. Okay, so, the fact that jason slipped out of your house doesn’t mean that he wasn’t there. You’re deliberately not answering my question. Why is that? How do you know I went to pentonville? Well, brennan may be sequestered, awaiting trial, but he is still considered a dangerous man. He has a lot of eyes on him. Especially the fbi’s? I was beginning to think I had been stood up. Well, since you asked yuri to drive me, I could hardly “ghost you,” as violet would say.

[ Chuckles ] And it was such a lovely evening, I asked him to take the route around the lake, and the sunset was breathtaking. So I asked him to stop, and h-he found a nice spot and pulled over and… piped tchaikovsky into the back seat. And I just soaked in the music and the splendor and got lost in it. I think we both did. I’m sorry I missed it. Uh, I am, too. You would have enjoyed it. And I would have enjoyed it more with you. Well, I-I did get to see some of the sunset on my ride. And you’re so right. It really was lovely.

[ Chuckles ] You know, gregory, I-I bet we could convince tracy to hop back on her horse. Two of you could finish that sunset together. What do you say? Want to trade out your cane for a saddle? Maybe next time.

T-that’s an interesting assumption. The fbi. Yeah. If this is your way of trying to figure out what I know, let me save you some time. John cates was asking jason about a connection between sonny, brennan, and pikeman, but brennan didn’t seem to know anything about it. So you told brennan, then? That agent cates was on his case? Like, specifically. Yeah, it’s not like it’s some deep dark secret. Yes, carly! It was! Didn’t you learn first-hand how law enforcement works when you were married to the mob?! I’m sure nina has more important things to do than listen to me practice my psa. Well, like I said, I’ll let you two get to work. Well, j-just hold on one second. Are you sure, willow? I mean… nina listens to pitches and ad campaigns just about every day. It’d be a shame not to take advantage of her expertise. Someone with so much media and promotion experience. J-just figure she might see something that I could miss. Unless you’re not comfortable. I — well, I’m not sure I’ll ever be comfortable with being a public figure, but it is important and I agreed to do it. But nina has a magazine to run. I’m just suggesting it because this is your first psa, and we really want to knock it out of the part. But, of course… it’s completely up to you. You know what happened the first time I rode a merry-go-round? I fell off.

[ Chuckles ] Stop trying to make me feel better, cowboy. No, no. It’s — it’s a true story. I was, uh — I was a little younger than leo. I was probably 8 or 9. I was trying to impress a very cute girl. Hard to believe. And she kept looking at this brass ring that was at the top of the pole. So I-I climbed up on t-the carousel pony and I stretched out my little body as far as it would go, and I just kept reaching for that brass ring. And then I fell — flat on my face. Don’t know how I didn’t break my nose, but I got eight stitches in my head. Too bad it didn’t knock some sense into you. Wait, wait. W-what about the girl? The next day, she sat next to me on the school bus.

[Chuckling] Ohh! And? The moral is? Reach for that brass ring. You may fall flat on your face, but… ya never know. He’s well-meaning. Yeah. I wish everyone treated me so kindly or gave me such good advice. Sasha: I don’t know, michael. Given your family’s history with relationships, I’m pretty sure the fact that you and i used to be a couple barely even registers on their radar. Maybe you’re just disappointed that I never used to cook like this for you. I’m a little disappointed, yeah.

[ Chuckles ] No, it’s just — I, uh — I’m just sorry that you even had to take this position. I never thought you would’ve walked away from deception. I mean, I could have negotiated, like, a golden parachute or something. I just hate that you left all that stock on the table and now you’re here cooking for my crazy, mixed-up family. Please. Take that off your mind. I wanted to walk away. And, yes, selling all my shares was a big…gulp. Sure. But… it was a loss that I was willing to take for my peace of mind. And gladys already took all my money, so it’s not like I didn’t have any practice. You know, sasha, you don’t have to do that with me, you know, pretend that you’re — you’re okay. I’m not pretending. It was time for me to go, michael. I’ve made peace with my decision, and, honestly, I haven’t even looked back. When olivia offered me this job, I jumped at it. I-I had other options, but none that I liked. Okay. You know, maybe if you would have given your job search a little more time, I-I would have lent you the money to tide you over. I’m sure sonny would have, too. I really appreciate the gesture, michael. But, first, I would not have taken it. And, second, there’s no need. I like it here. You know, I-I don’t know if you remember, but I always used to say that I longed to be part of a family… after growing up without one. So now I get to cook for your “crazy, mixed-up family.” I get to practice my cooking and stay in a home with people I know and trust. Trust? I wouldn’t — I wouldn’t go that far.

[ Laughs ] But, I mean, maybe… I should have asked you before I said yes. I mean, I-I never even talked to willow about it. I really hope that I have not made things awkward between the two of you, have I?

I didn’t even think to ask willow how she might feel about me moving in here. We used to be so close, and then with everything that has happened to both of us, we’ve lost touch. And then after she had amelia and I showed up at the gatehouse hopped up on pills, she’s probably worried about having me around the kids. No, no. Hey. Sasha, that is not the case at all. We know what the situation was. Y-you were sabotaged. We trust you. Thank you. As far as us and our — our history… yeah, we shared a lot of memories, but we’re good, though, right? I mean… unless you’re saying it’s awkward for you. No. No. I-I really like being here. Good. Because the quartermaines, who rarely agree on anything, agree on you. Especially the kids, ’cause they love your beignets. I’m so glad. And, honestly, michael, this is not a step down for me. I really love cooking for your family. I… I’ve found it really… nurturing and grounding. I like seeing how happy people are when they eat my food, knowing that I’m contributing to their well-being. And I really love seeing how happy you are with willow. You guys are really inspirational. The love and the commitment that you share.

[ Door opens ] I, um — I used to have that once, so… maybe I will again. Have what? I don’t know if there will be an actual motion to reopen heather’s case, but I wanted to let you know what was brewing.

[ Scoffs ] This is preposterous! I’ve lost count of that woman’s victims! And she almost made trina one of them! What is there to revisit, jordan? How could this even be considered?! Well, it’s been discovered that heather was slowly being poisoned by an artificial hip implant decades ago with neurotoxic results. Wait. What? They think her artificial hip made her crazy? I-I read about this. A-and I did some digging. Some people who were poisoned by heavy metals have been affected mentally w-with anxiety, depression, cognitive dysfunction, bipolarity, even schizophrenia. But even if that were the case, heather is a brutal killer. Surely, this can’t erase her actual crimes! No, but some people think it can help explain them. “Some people”? Who? Who would even advocate for heather webber?! Well, you’re gonna find out anyways. My boss has raised the question. Spencer’s grandmother? Blood cancers once considered fatal can now be cured… if only people knew where to look for help. I should know since a marrow donor saved my life. That’s why the new tomorrow institute was created — to help people like you and me. Willow , that was so good,especially for your first try! Thanks, drew. Uh, nina? Anything to add? You come across very sincere and authentic. But? No. [ Chuckles ] I don’t — I don’t want to make you feel self-conscious. No, what you’re doing is — is spot-on. Nina, it’s okay. I… I’d like to hear what you have to say. Okay. Willow, you’re living proof that cancer doesn’t need to be a death sentence. You are the success story. You’re the example that people can aspire to. You came through a harrowing ordeal, and now you have a wonderful, healthy, happy, fulfilling life. Show that. Show the people that are dealing with cancer and their families that they not only stand to survive, but, like you, to thrive. So, in other words… totally okay to smile a little.

[ Both laugh ] Noted. Anything else? You got this. I’m gonna go back to my office. Nina. Thank you. Any time.

[ Door closes ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Why on earth would you think it was a good idea to tell brennan that he and pikeman were subjects of an fbi investigation?! Because I wanted to know how he’d react. Why? Are you running an investigation of your own? From the minute I laid eyes on brennan. Oh, he hasn’t asked you to call him “jack” yet? No. He told me he was in the “security business.” And I took that to mean he was ex-intelligence or ex-military. I thought he was going after sonny, then I realized he was working with that guy hume. And when I heard the name pikeman in connection with brennan, it’s not a far stretch to think the fbi had their sights on him. Okay. God. Don’t know why I’m telling you this. Okay. Listen. The fbi didn’t realize that the former director of the wsb was involved with pikeman, maybe even running it, because he had managed to conceal his involvement. And that is why he came after me. But did brennan come after you? Well, yes. I thought that was hume. Did jack brennan come anywhere near you? How did he find out about john cates? You know, ’cause brennan was already in prison when he came to town. Did he tell you that or did… did you tell him? I may have mentioned it. Okay. So you blithely confirmed to brennan that he is under fbi surveillance… and you have put pikeman on high alert… and you have compromised a major investigation!

What happens with your investigation is not my problem. Okay, you know, you need to listen to me, carly! So you understand what’s at stake! Like what?! Never mind. I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know. Because why should I trust you? Why should I trust

any of you? I mean, john shows up being all nice and genuine. Then he goes to jason and he hassles him about pikeman! And you know this how? I don’t think john would have shared that information with you. Were you listening? You were listening, weren’t you? Oh, my god. Of course, you were listening! You just asked me why you should trust me. It’s because I’m trying to help you! Or have you forgotten that brennan could have killed you the day that we arrested him? I remember you and dante bursting in with your guns drawn. The only thing brennan was packing was a couple zip ties. Yeah, like everyone walks around with zip ties in their pocket! Well, apparently, all spies do. Where are yours? In your pocket or in your purse somewhere? I don’t have any — okay. Look. I have never, ever considered you to be stupid or naive. But brennan could have kidnapped you that day or worse. You know what? I’m not so sure about that. I mean, if jack brennan is as dangerous as you say, he could have taken me down, he could have pulled a gun. He didn’t do either. I mean, maybe what you saw as a life-or-death situation was just a miscommunication. Why don’t you try to be as smart as you think you are? You stay the hell away from jack brennan! Oh, really? Hey, fritz. Um, I don’t feel like driving tomorrow, so I’m gonna need a ride. Yes. Yes, that’s right. Well, I would like to go to pentonville. Yes. No. I-I want to leave from here. Great. I’ll see you tomorrow. Well, that’s nice of you — to still visit your friends behind bars. Finn and violet have probably already left for the rehearsal and coney island, so why don’t you have dinner with me? As it turns out, sasha is a fabulous cook. All she has to do is heat it up for us. I’m not having dinner with you tonight, tracy, because you are going to coney island.

[ Laughs ] Oh, in the words of the bensonhurst brigade… “fuggedaboutit.” This is lois’ event, not mine. And while they’re all dining on hot dogs and cotton candy, I will be enjoying sasha’s delicious meal with cloth napkins and a tablecloth. Besides, I’m not in the ceremony, so there’s nothing for me to rehearse. I couldn’t disagree with you more. I need you to stand in for me at the rehearsal. That way, you can tell me when the music starts and stops, when I make my entrance, where to stand, all the little details that I need to know. Is this why you wanted to see me tonight? Uh, partially. T-there’s something else. I guess you could call it my “fail-safe” plan — in case I can’t make it to my son’s wedding. I am really excited about hopefully helping so many people, but I have so much to learn when it comes to the media side of things. I have no doubt that you’re gonna get the hang of it. Plus, you got so many people around you to help. It was a really good idea to have nina stay for the rehearsal. Her suggestion to simply smile made it so much easier the next few rehearsals. You really are a natural, but I have to admit nina’s media savvy probably could help us reach our target audience. So if you’re open to it, I mean, I could ask her to become more involved. Well, I’m not surprised… since you and nina planned this whole thing. Didn’t you? I’m just here to scrounge. I was hoping to find some yummy leftovers in the fridge. Yeah, I take it you’re hungry? Aren’t I always?

[ Laughs ] This is what I like to see. Checking out new recipes? Yeah, I am thinking of trying out some new appetizers. Ooh! Stick around long enough, and you might get to sample them. I’m really glad we talked, michael.

[ Sighs ] She’s amazing. Oh, I know. So, what are your plans for all of her…amazingness?

oh, baby, how are you feeling about this? I can’t feel anything but betrayed. For me and spencer. I understand, baby. And I don’t blame you one bit. And right now I’m — I’m straining my objectivity to try to see it from laura’s point of view. I’m trying to think how I might feel if this was a member of our family. Stella, that’s big of you. Really. It’s amazing. You know, I was police commissioner throughout heather’s hook killing spree, her jail breaks, and I’m struggling to find objectivity, too. But, still, I recognize laura’s courage to even consider taking this on. She has to realize the political firestorm she’ll cause if she gets that case against heather re-opened. So, are you saying that laura’s asking for heather to be set free? Well, you just put that out there, didn’t ya? I find it saves a lot of time to be direct. I saw you two just now. There’s sparks, you know? T-there’s something there. Yeah. Yeah. We have a good time. We’re friends. Friends. Okay. Friendship’s good. Can’t have too many. But some friendships are more special than others, and I just — I hope you realize how special sasha is. Don’t I ever. I mean… her molten chocolate lava cake is to die for. Are you ever serious? I’m very serious about my job, so no worries there. Okay. What about sasha? She has been through a hell of a lot these last few years. And she’s come through. She’s one of the best people that I know. So I hope you’re serious about being good to her. I will be as good to her as she’ll let me be. Willow, are you — are you accusing me of — of setting you up? I am accusing you of being a well-meaning friend who is trying to patch things up between nina and me. I’ll admit. I would love if you and nina work things out, but I am a businessman, and nina coaching you makes for a better psa, which may widen the reach for the appeal, which is what aurora promised the new tomorrow institute. So it’s good business. I would never do anything that I thought would hurt you. I hope you know that, willow. A-and I do get how sensitive the situation is between you and your mother. Ahh. My “mother.” That still lands with a jolt. I haven’t thought of nina in those terms in a while. I know, willow, but if I can get past it and find a way to work with her, maybe you can, too. I meant what I said before. Your attitude toward nina, your ability to put the past in the past and deal with her here in the present, made me rethink my own attitude. But it’s hard. I have opened myself up to nina on more than one occasion, and it did not go well for me. There was always a lie or manipulation, and then I’m left feeling angry and foolish. Like, how many times do I have to go through the same thing before I learn my lesson? Nina was the one that needed to learn her lesson, willow. Maybe she has. Maybe? I can’t be sure. But I’m willing to give her a chance. And I — I realize that it’s easier for me. She sent you to prison! I have a professional relationship with her, not a personal relationship with her, so she can, like — she can disappoint me, she can frustrate me, but she can’t — she can’t wound me. So I get… I get how letting her in is just a much bigger risk for you than it is for me. And saying that… …I realize that I owe you an apology. You? Why? I, uh… may have finagled the meeting and pushed things a bit so that you guys would have a chance to interact. And I’m sorry. But I stand by my business perspective. She really did make things better. So if you’re not comfortable… no, no. I’ll — I’ll think about it. Good. Then why do you look so upset? Because I have no right to come down on you. Not when I’ve been keeping something from you myself. Keeping something from me? About your brother. Carly: I can’t do this! I don’t have time. I’m sorry. That’s — that was unnecessary. Carly, I’m having the best day ever, and I do not want to ruin it. Look. We are never gonna hear bluebirds or see rainbows when our paths cross, but we don’t have to take shots at each other unnecessarily. Like you just did? It — that was a reflex that I regret. And I’m sorry. I approached you because there was actually another reason why I needed to talk to you. It can’t be another apology. I’ve already heard them all. No. I wanted to tell you that…

[ Exhales heavily ] …You were right about sonny.

I cobbled together some traditional texts along with some thoughts and musings of my own. I’m sure it’s very beautiful. Thanks, but I’m not looking for assurance. I’m holding you to your promise to take my place if I — yadda, yadda, yadda! You are presiding over chase and brook lynn’s ceremony. It’s meant to be. The only things that are “meant to be” are death and taxes. Yeah, well, I take exception to the latter. Tracy, don’t tell me you have stage fright.

[ Scoffs] Whether I do or not is beside the point. You’re the officiant! I-I’m just — I’m covering my bases, in case I can’t read my notes or I-I lose my breath, things that have been happening more and more these days. I’ll need my understudy to go on if that happens. Well, I seriously doubt that I’m gonna need to “go on,” as you put it, because you are perfectly capable of marrying those two, all while being… the most attractive man in the room.

[ Chuckles ] Flattery… will get you everywhere. Except coney island. Now, can we get to the airport in time? You have to make that rehearsal. I’ll get there. Oh… w-what’s the dress code for coney island? Think mermaid.

[ Groans ]

[ Laughs ] I heated you up some beef bourguignon. Otherwise known as beef stew.

[ Chuckles ] Where’s michael? Uh, he, uh — he left… right after warning me to be good to you. Okay. Well, I know michael. He had the best of intentions, but it’s not his job to make sure that I’m well-treated. It’s mine. I get to decide all on my own if a situation works for me, if it fits my needs. So we’re talking about your job as a cook? “Situation” is pretty vague. It covers my job, but also the people I associate with. Like me. You don’t need a lecture from michael on being good to me, cody. You already are. Trina, I can’t speak for laura’s intentions, but I do know her as my boss and as a person. She is smart and sensitive. So let’s not jump to any conclusions. The immediate question is, where does heather belong while they sort out her medical and legal issues? My vote is someplace safe and secure. T-this is a very complicated issue. I’ve worked with psych patients and their families, and — and I know that people’s pain, whether mental or physical, can drive them to do and say things that would otherwise be unthinkable. Okay, aunt stella, maybe heather was acting out of mental or physical pain, as you say. But what about her victims? What about the victims’ families? What about the pain she inflicted on us?! What I’m about to tell you is confidential, okay? Okay. When jason got back to port charles, after he jumped off the bridge… michael and I found him in the boathouse badly wounded. And we bandaged him up and got him antibiotics from the hospital. Jason should never have put you guys in that position. We had to do something. He was shot. So did you stitch him up? Of course you did. Because that’s what you do, willow. You help people. You helped jason. You help people at G.H. And now you’re helping people through the new tomorrow institute. I appreciate you so much, willow. And your secret is safe with me. Nina: You said that it wasn’t going to last, that sonny would leave me, and he did. If I had listened to you, maybe I could have saved myself some heartache, but, you know, I-I wouldn’t listen to you or anyone else. I had to live it. And I have. Is that all? I’m trying to make amends with drew. I understand needing to be on good terms with your employer. It’s in drew and my best interests to have a good working relationship. Then I guess it’s all worked out, huh? You and drew have a working relationship. You’re back at crimson. I have my hotel back. I mean… no reason to look back at all the damage done, huh? It’s good for all just to move forward. You make it sound easy. Not easy. Necessary. I’m not looking back. I’m not going that way. Jason? Jason?!

[ Exhales sharply ] Well, you were right.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Finn: Look, I know this is an enormous shock and that you can’t believe it. I mean, I couldn’t either. But it’s true. I mean, when deacon first told me about this sugar woman…

Steffy: Okay, deacon lost it. You said so yourself.

Finn: Yeah, I thought he had.

Steffy: Sheila’s dead. Don’t try to tell me otherwise. I killed her right there.

Finn: It wasn’t sheila. It was sugar. That’s who deacon saw at the crematorium. Sugar and sheila are identical in every single way except one. Sugar has ten toes.

Li: Why do you have that sheet over your face? What happened to you? I knew someone named sheila. She had a missing toe too. The middle digit. Black nail polish. Just like you. Who are you? Answer me. Who are you? Answer me!

Liam: Okay, okay. So… what you’re claiming right now is that deacon was– he was right the whole time.

Ridge: Not really the most important thing, is it? You’re saying that sheila is still alive?

Hope: I– I know it’s the last thing that you wanna hear. I just thought you needed to know. Sheila carter is alive.

Ridge: This is unbelievable.

Hope: Well, look, I– I told you–

Ridge: I know what you told me, I know. A little farfetched to think that– that sheila didn’t die that night.

Hope: Because she didn’t, ridge. It wasn’t sheila who broke into the cliff house. It wasn’t sheila who attacked steffy. It wasn’t sheila that steffy stabbed and killed. It was sugar. A woman who apparently looks identical to sheila.

Liam: Whose real name you said was janet webber?

Ridge: Janet webber, yes.

Liam: Okay, well, look. Apparently, she was released not that long ago.

Hope: That is exactly how I felt when I saw sheila face-to-face.

Li: That’s it. I don’t know what kind of game you’re playing, but I am not amused. I came in here to examine you because you asked for me, but I can’t do that if I can’t see your face. Take that sheet down right now. Show me your face!

Sheila: No!

[ Li screams ]

[ Sheila mockingly screams ]

Li: No.

[ Sheila laughs ] No.

Finn: Deacon was right about all of it.

Steffy: Deacon has been feeding you this garbage for weeks. His fantasy about his lost loved one.

Finn: Yeah, he didn’t wanna give up. He didn’t wanna lose her and it’s a good thing that he didn’T. Because sheila is alive.

Steffy: No, finn. I killed sheila. I stabbed her to death right there.

Finn: Honey, no. And that’s what I’m telling you, okay? You didn’t do that. (Vo) you might be used to living with your albuterol asthma

Liam: Hope, you realize this is… this is crazy, this, uh…

Hope: If I hadn’t seen sheila with my own eyes–

Ridge: But, you did see her, right? Right after she was, uh, chained up in a warehouse?

Liam: By the person that steffy actually killed.

Hope: Yes. Sheila carter is alive.

Li: No. No. You– you died.

Sheila: Ooh, did I?

Li: This can’t be. This can’t be. You can’t be.

Sheila: And yet, here I am. You know, and I’d say I’m looking pretty good for a corpse, huh? Don’t you think?

Li: Oh, no, no. No, no, not possible. Steffy killed you. She stabbed you.

Sheila: Yeah, you would’ve liked to see me dead and gone, li. Hm. But I would think again. You– you– you really need to get control of yourself or you’re the one that’s gonna need medical attention. I was a nurse, remember? And I am sensing some hypersensitivity here.

Li: How? How is this happening?

Sheila: Well, I’d like to say it was dumb luck or maybe fate, but the truth is, it was finn. You all tried so hard to drive my son away from me, to drive a wedge between us. But you know what? Miracle of miracles. My wonderful son is the reason that I’m here. I am here…

Li: No! Because of my son, finn.

Li: How?

Finn: It’s okay.

Steffy: No. It’s not okay.

Finn: No.

Steffy: Do you hear yourself right now?

Finn: You’re stunned, all right? Of course, you are. I mean, I was too when I first realized all this.

Steffy: Okay. Sheila’s alive.

Finn: Yeah, it’s a lot to process.

Steffy: Yeah. And sugar looks exactly like sheila.

Finn: Yeah, she’s the one.

Steffy: Like they’re identical. Do you understand how ridiculous this sounds?

Finn: I know, but somehow it’s– it’s true.

Steffy: Oh, my god. Who told you this? Deacon?

Finn: No, my mother told us what happened.

Steffy: Li told you?

Finn: No, sheila. Sheila told us.

Steffy: Sheila. Your mother, okay. Did she tell you this from the grave? Because she is dead, finn.

Finn: Sugar’s dead. Yeah, she’s the one that wanted to hurt you. It wasn’t sheila.

Steffy: I saw sheila’s face.

Finn: I couldn’t tell the difference either. I couldn’t tell them apart. It wasn’t until deacon showed me the picture. Okay, that’s when I realized that what he’s been saying is true. That’s what convinced me. I mean, do you want me to show you?

Steffy: No, I don’t wanna–

Finn: Okay, listen. And the story that lauren fenmore told deacon about what happened all those years ago, that’s when I started to listen. And because, yes, it filled in a lot of the blanks. I understand that it’s crazy, but sheila tricked sugar into plastic surgery

Steffy: Oh, my god.

Finn: So that sugar would pay for all of her crimes. Okay, look, it was lauren fenmore who was the one that realized that it was sugar behind bars and not sheila.

Steffy: Okay, finn, you can’t take everything at face value. Like, where is the evidence? Where is the facts?

Finn: Sheila confessed this to lauren years ago.

Steffy: God.

Finn: Deacon, he wasn’t hallucinating. All right? He thought he saw ten toes going into the crematorium because he did. It wasn’t sheila’s body. It was sugar’S. And, sweetheart, I am not taking anyone’s word for it because I saw sheila. I saw her with my own eyes. Depression is a journey.

Li: What did you do to my son? What did you do to finn?

Sheila: You know, our son. Why do you always forget that?

Li: Where is he?

Sheila: He’s probably spreading the good news to his wife.

Li: Good news?

Sheila: Mama’s alive.

Li: You’re not his mother. You’re nothing to him.

Sheila: Then, why did he save me, huh? Let me tell you why. Because he’s a wonderful, strong, caring boy that loves his birth mother. That’s why I’m here.

Li: No.

Sheila: That’s why I have a second chance. Because of finn. And you know the best part, and you’re not gonna wanna hear this, but he’s happy. He’s happy to have me back in his life, and he never wants to be apart from me again. I wish you could’ve heard the beautiful things he had to say and the joy in his eyes. He even called me mom. You have no idea what that meant to me.

Li: No, no!

Sheila: Stop it. Li, remember your oath, do no harm.

Li: No!

Sheila: Stop. I don’t want to hurt you. Just stop it.

Deacon: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, no! What the hell’s going on?

Nurse: Dr. Finnegan.

Sheila: You know, I think– I think I’d like to see another doctor. Because dr. Finnegan’s bedside manner is– is a bit harsh for me.

Li: I don’t know how you did it. I don’t know how you cheated death, but you will never do it again! I will kill you with my own hands! Sheila, I will kill you! I will kill you!

Liam: This is absolutely insane. I– I don’t– I’m sorry it’s taking a second to process this. It’s not a reflection on you.

Ridge: We’re on board with this now? This latest scheme? We’re buying this?

Hope: Well, look, it’s not another one of sheila’s schemes. That’s what I’m trying to tell you. And finn believes that too.

Liam: Finn knows? Hope?

Hope: Look, when my dad learned about sugar, he– he told finn. And then they found some credit card charges and– and that led them to a mini-mart, they started asking questions, led them to the warehouse and that’s where they found sheila. Chained up. It was finn and my dad. They rescued her. And just so you know, they are both happy that she is alive. And finn is excited to have another chance at a relationship with his birth mother.

Liam: What?

Ridge: Psycho birth mother. What’s steffy gonna do with this? Sheila’s back and finn is choosing her. Is that what we’re doing? Is that where we are?

Liam: How is finn celebrating this, hope? How– how could he possibly celebrate this?

Hope: He thinks that steffy might find some relief in it.

Ridge: Relief? Is that what you said, relief?

Hope: I mean, obviously there will be an initial shock.

Ridge: Relief how? What, just a mother with two kids in danger again?

Liam: Well, whoa, we’re gonna make sure they’re not in danger, first of all.

Hope: Okay, finn cares about that as well. He just thinks that steffy will be relieved to know that she didn’t kill his birth mom.

Ridge: I don’t think this word relief means what you think it means. No one is relieved. Nobody. And if that’s what finn thinks, he’s got another thing coming.

Steffy: You think you saw sheila?

Finn: No, I did see her.

Steffy: Like that night you had the nightmare and you saw her talking to you in her blood?

Finn: No, no, honey. We took her back’s to deacon apartment. We found her and we saved her.

Steffy: I don’t know what this is. Like, what is happening? What is going on right now?

Finn: My mother is alive.

Steffy: Finn, sheila is not your mother. Li is. Sheila is dead. Like, I– this is really starting to freak me out.

Finn: Do you want– no, no, hey, hey, sweetheart. No, there’s nothing to be afraid of, okay? And, look, this isn’t a bad thing. It’s a good thing for all of us. And I understand that this is hard to accept. It’s shocking, it’s– it’s confusing, but we just– we need to give it some time.

Steffy: Finn, this isn’t real. Whatever this is, it’s not true.

Finn: It is, though. And, look, it’s gonna make things better. Because we have been working hard, right? We have been struggling to accept this horrible thing that happened. But guess what? Steffy, it didn’t happen. At least, not how we thought it was. Steffy, my birth mother is alive.


Deacon: What are you giving her?

Sheila: That’s my protective fiancĂ©.

Nurse: Just saline to help you rehydrate.

Sheila: Well, thank goodness. Who knows what dr. Finnegan would be giving me.

Nurse: Be back to check on you in a bit.

Sheila: Not to mention that she got the shock of her life.

Deacon: Hm. That was not very nice.

Sheila: Oh, come on. It was just a prank. Very harmless. Besides, she needed to know that finn’s birth mother was still alive.

Deacon: Mm-hmm.

Sheila: If you could’ve seen the look on her face.

Deacon: Yeah, well, wait ’til you see the look on everyone else’s face once they realize that sheila carter is back from the dead. Once again.

Ridge: My daughter’s gonna be horrified. Finn must know that.

Liam: What the hell is wrong with him?

Hope: What, finn can’t be happy that his birth mother isn’t dead?

Ridge: His birth mother tried to destroy this family.

Hope: That wasn’t sheila that tried to break into the house. That was sugar.

Ridge: This time. But what, all the other times, it was her. Any attempted murder. Any– any vicious attacks. Any of that, it was her. And if finn wants her back in our lives, I’ve got a problem with that.

Liam: It’s not just you. We’re all gonna have a problem. Including kelly, by the way, who lives over there. My daughter with finn and steffy. If sheila’s actually alive, none of us relax. Ever again.

Hope: Finn doesn’t believe that.

Liam: Because he’s an idiot!

Hope: Liam, sheila tried to stop sugar. She risked her life to protect steffy and the kids.

Ridge: Says who?

Hope: Finn. He believes that she is a changed person. That she is reformed.

Finn: I know it’s hard to believe. And you’ve been struggling with this for weeks.

Steffy: And so have you. More than I realized.

Finn: Yeah. I have been struggling. I mean, nothing has been the same since that night. And I was hoping that we could move past that, but it’s– it’s been there. It’s been in the back of my mind and I– I didn’t know why until I understood that deacon was right. My birth mother could be alive and I wanted to find her and we did.

Steffy: No, you didn’T. Sheila is dead.

Finn: Well, she could’ve been if we wouldn’t have found her in time. But we did. And she’s safe and I’m thankful.

Steffy: Huh? What? You’re thankful? After everything she did to us, we worked really hard to put her behind us.

Finn: Yeah, we have. It’s been difficult. Because the woman that I love killed the mother that I never got a chance to help.

Steffy: It was in self-defense.

Finn: No, hey, honey. No, no, no. Listen, I know, steffy. I know that it’s self-defense. That’s what I’m trying to tell you. Can’t you see? We don’t have to worry about that anymore.

Steffy: Because I didn’t kill sheila?

Finn: That’s right.

Steffy: What? So, the woman who came in here, that wasn’t sheila?

Finn: No. Honey, no, look, and I’m not losing it. I’m not confused. And you know me. You know me better than anyone. And I’m– I’m telling you the truth.

Steffy: So… what? That was sugar. Sugar was in our home. Oh, deacon was right. That woman who came in here… that woman who came in here and attacked me, that was sugar? And– and this whole time, sheila was what? She was– she was in a warehouse and you and deacon saved her? Is this real right now? Sheila carter’s alive. Sheila’s alive.

Deacon: Here’s a look ahead.

Finn: Let me guess. Deacon wants me to come to the wedding too.

Hope: He wanted to know if you would be his best man.

Steffy: This sick, twisted tie that you have to finn, it ends today.

Luna: What does it say? Is it negative? Is it positive?

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Claire: They were so big, I couldn’t believe it.

Summer: This is unbelievable! It’s exactly what I told kyle I didn’t want. Claire all over harrison.

Phyllis: Yeah, I mean, they’re feeding ducks. Maybe it’s harmless.

Summer: That is so not the point. Kyle knows how I feel about her being around him. And– and so does she.

Claire: They were fighting.

Phyllis: Yeah, I get it. I get it. What do you wanna do?

Summer: I’m definitely not going to walk away.

Jack: Wait, you want to leave?

Diane: I don’t want to leave. I just don’t see any other way to get through this. I’m so angry at you, jack. For the risk you took for to your sobriety, and your life, and I won’t take the chance that that anger could push you back into a bottle of pills.

Jack: I will say it again. I’m not going to relapse.

Diane: You don’t know that.

Jack: You’re really thinking of leaving because of what happened to nikki? I made a judgement call that saved her life.

Diane: Yeah, and you almost lost yours.

Jack: No, I’m very much alive.

Diane: You were unconscious! You overdosed! The emts needed to revive you. The only life that needed saving was yours. And thank god nikki was sober enough to call.

Jack: It could just as easily have been nikki who was unconscious in that room. I knew I could come back from the pills. Nikki might not have been so lucky had alcohol poisoning set in.

Diane: Oh, please. You could have taken away her vodka bottles.

Jack: No, that’s not the way it works.

Diane: Oh, really, jack? Then, tell me. Is swallowing a bunch of pills in front of her how it works?

Jack: It was a last resort.

Diane: What if you walked into an aa meeting and you shared what happened? What do you think the members would say? That you did the right thing or that you made a horrific mistake?

Jack: You’re right. I’m willing to accept that taking pills was foolish. If I had thought it through, perhaps another, safer option for help nikki might have presented itself to me. I did not have time. It was an emergency. I made a choice. In the moment. A hail mary. And it worked. I’m sorry I put you through this. I mean that. I wish– I wish I could make it up to you.

Diane: So, is that what this is? An in the moment hail-mary?

Jack: What are you talking about?

Diane: You will say whatever it takes to keep me from leaving.

[ Jordan laughs ]

Jordan: I knew it. You need me. You’re not just let me rot in here when I have something that I can offer you. I have a skillset that you need.

Victor: I don’t need you. I’m merely considering my options right now.

Jordan: Okay. Okay. Okay, victor. Then, you tell me. You tell me, okay? Whatever it is, I’ll do it.

Victor: It’ll be at a time of my choosing.

I have type 2 diabetes, but I manage it well

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Summer: What a surprise!

Harrison: Mommy!

Summer: Hi, buddy!

Victoria: Well, we were having such a lovely day.

Summer: How are you doing?

Harrison: Having fun.

Summer: I bet you are.

Phyllis: Hey, do you have one of those hugs for me? Oh, my goodness! Oh! You have grown like three feet since I last saw you.

Harrison: I was kidnapped. So was claire. By a witch.

Phyllis: Whoa! You are so brave.

Harrison: Claire says I’m the bravest boy she ever met. Right?

Claire: Brave and amazing and strong.

Harrison: Because I had my lucky charm. Claire found it for me.

Summer: Honey, you didn’t need a lucky charm to be the brave boy you are.

Harrison: Claire used to have a lucky charm when she was little, but she lost it. We could give her a new one, right, mom?

Phyllis: So, how did this little get-together come about?

Kyle: A happy coincidence.

Summer: Really?

Victoria: Claire and i were just out enjoying the beautiful day.

Claire: And we were lucky enough to run into these two.

Harrison: Claire and i fed the ducks.

Victoria: It’s nice to enjoy a little bit of nature.

Summer: Really nice you could fit all this in before going to the office.

Phyllis: I’d like to introduce myself. I’m harrison’s very protective grandma.

Jack: What do I have to say to you to convince you I regret what I did? The last thing I wanted was to upset you.

Diane: Oh, stop it, jack. You weren’t thinking about me at all. You acted so recklessly. You put yourself in so much danger. Without thinking about to the consequences to your family, or to your wife.

Jack: For which I am profoundly apologetic.

Diane: [ Sighs ] You know what? Your apology is hindsight. Your instinct was to put nikki first. Not me. Not your life. And I– I don’t know what to do with that.

Jack: And the answer is running away?

Diane: I am not running away. I’m doing what is best for us. I don’t want my anger to cause you to relapse.

Jack: What happened was a one-off. It was intentional. We don’t have to worry about me being hooked again. The only thing I am craving right now is a chance to regain your trust!

Diane: How can I not be concerned about your sobriety moving forward?

Jack: What, my word isn’t enough?

Diane: No! You say it was a one-off!

Jack: It was!

Diane: Yeah, but what if it wasn’t? What if you liked that feeling? Being high on pills.

Jack: Oh, come on, don’t do this.

Diane: Oh, no, no. Maybe saving nikki was just an excuse to feel that again. Or, maybe a test to see how strong you are against your old demons.

Jack: You are taking things out of context.

Diane: Well, what if I’m not? You keep saying how strong you are, but jack, this is unknown territory. And what– what if this tension between us is too much, and it puts a crack in all that strength of yours?

Jack: I get my strength from you. Your love gives me strength.

Diane: What about my anger? Hm? I don’t want to do anything that could put your sobriety at risk.

Jack: I had–

Diane: So, I think the best thing is for me to remove myself from this situation.

Jack: Diane, I–

Diane: I need my husband. And harrison needs his grandfather, healthy and present after everything he’s been through.

Jack: And your answer is to walk away?

Diane: No, I just… I just need time. To– to think about what’s happened. And to figure out what’s ahead. And you do too.

Jack: No, I don’T. I don’t need time. I know what I want. I want the two of us to find a way to work through this together.

Claire: It’s wonderful that harrison has so many people who love and protect him.

Phyllis: That’s what family does, right?

Victoria: I assume you’ve heard that claire is family as well?

Claire: Yes, I’m victoria’s–

Phyllis: I know who you are.

Victoria: I was telling clair earlier about all of the interesting characters around genoa city like katherine chancellor. But, I guess I failed to warn her about everyone in town.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Well, that’s the thing with warnings around here, not everybody’s really paying attention to them.

Jordan: “Your choosing?” What, is this a damn chess game, now? Why don’t we just sit down and play some checkers? Get on with it.

Victor: I call the shots.

Jordan: Oh, that’s abundantly clear. But I would settle for just a little hint.

Victor: I don’t know. Considering the various options, you know. If I even decide to… go ahead with the project.

Jordan: Oh, surely. Surely, you don’t doubt my capabilities. My ability to take risks, push the limits. I have a special talent for you. Only I can do… what I can do. You know that. I can smell fear, I can manipulate it, I can weaponize it. Just ask your lovely wife.

Victor: You’re a delusional, vicious bitch. And don’t ever mention nikki again.

[ Jordan laughs ]

Jordan: Whatever the great and powerful victor newman wants. But I think that you want me to do your dirty work. And I think… I’m right. I mean, what is it? My hands are already awash in blood. What’s a little more? ()

Victoria: I’m just happy that claire’s made a real friend.

Harrison: Let’s go to the playground!

Summer: Uh, you know what, honey, I actually think that we need to get you home for lunch.

Harrison: Can claire come too?

Claire: Uh, oh, I would really like to, but I have plans already. Maybe we can do it some other time.

Victoria: Yeah, we should get going.

Claire: Well, I will see you later, alligator.

Harrison: After a while, crocodile.

Victoria: Kyle, please just think about what we discussed earlier.

Phyllis: Well, harrison, why don’t you show me the playground? What do you think of that?

Harrison: Okay.

Phyllis: All right.

Summer: How could you do this to me?

Victor: I’ll let you know what I decide.

Jordan: Don’t you turn your back on me after dangling my freedom in front of me.

Victor: Just… a little distance away. Like your freedom, yeah?

Jordan: Oh, you’re a damn cruel bastard.

Victor: You make it easy. Now, isn’t that pretty?

Jordan: I need food! Not more vodka! Oh!

Victor: I decide what you’ll get. Now, cheers.

Jordan: Damn you, come back here!

[ Jordan panting ]

Diane: I hate that we’re even having this conversation.

Jack: I am totally to blame for this. What can I do to reassure you that I am– that I am okay? That our future together is safe?

Diane: All right, well, why don’t you go some 12 step meetings? No matter what the reason, you broke your sobriety. And you keep saying you have it under control, but you let that poison back into your system. And there’s no telling how, or when, it could become a craving that you can’t say no to.

Jack: You’re right. I will go to a meeting today. And tomorrow and the next day. Will that change your mind?

Diane: Jack, you can’t do it for me. It has to be for you, or what’s the point?

Jack: I know, it is for me. But I would be disingenuous if I didn’t say it is also for us, for our happiness.

Diane: You’ve always been very good at knowing exactly what to say.

Jack: It kills me that I have hurt you this deeply.

Diane: It’s going to take more than an apology for me to be okay with what happened.

Jack: Okay, I understand, but loving you and being loved in return have brought me more joy than I– I knew existed. That I would do something to destroy that… crushes my heart. Please, I’m asking you please, don’t leave.

Victoria: Oh, good, you’re here.

Cole: Hey. I didn’t expect you back from the park so soon. All the fun that claire and harrison were having, I thought that that would’ve spilled right over into lunch.

Victor: Yeah, well, then summer showed up and that was the end of that.

Cole: So, is she still tense with claire?

Victor: That’s putting it mildly.

Cole: What did she say?

Victor: Summer didn’t have to say anything. No, no, not at all. She was perfectly and excruciatingly polite. But she couldn’t wait to get harrison away from claire. It was infuriating, and insulting, and it didn’t help that phyllis showed up with her dragon breath to play back-up.

Cole: How did claire take all this? You know, I just– I just hate the thought of our daughter feeling unwelcome.

Victoria: She tried to take it in stride, but she shouldn’t have to.

Victor: Well, this is a pleasant surprise.

Cole: Hey, victor.

Victoria: There you are, daddy. Hi. Good to see you.

Victor: Hi, sweetheart.

Victoria: You know, I saw joan when I walked in, and she said that you were here, but she hadn’t seen you. Where were you at?

Victor: I just went down to the stables. To feed califa some carrots.

Victoria: Aw, that’s so nice. That’s something that you and mom would love to do on a day like today.

Victor: And hopefully, will do soon again, you know.

Victoria: Yeah. You know, I know that she needs to be in rehab right now, and I want nothing more for her to get better, but I miss her so much.

Victor: So do I. It’s very, very upsetting. Anyway, the two of you wanted to talk to me about something? Please sit down.

Victoria: Yes, thank you. Yes, cole and I, we were talking and we wanted to discuss something about claire’s future. We wanted to run it by you.

Victor: Sure.

Cole: Victor, I think that you’re aware of how much it meant to claire when she helped with the children at the hospital.

Victor: I heard that she read to some child.

Cole: Yes, yes. Exactly.

Victor: How sweet.

Cole: Yeah. You know, it gave claire such a sense of purpose. And she enjoyed it so much, she’s talking about finding a job working with kids.

Victor: Huh, wow.

Victoria: And as luck would have it, kyle and summer happen to be looking for a new nanny for harrison. Who adores claire and she loves the idea of working with him. And actually kyle seems very open to the idea as well.

Cole: It just seems like a perfect fit.

Victor: Huh. So, what’s the problem?

Victoria: Summer, actually. She’s still wary of claire and she’s having a problem overlooking her history. And I was thinking that maybe if you could, you know, talk to her about it. I know that she would listen to you and maybe if you could vouch that maybe, maybe summer would change her mind about it.

Victor: Hm. Well, I won’t do that.

Victoria: Why not?

Victor: As much as I would love to help claire, every which way, I do not want her to be subject to the toxicity of the abbott household.

“The darkness of bipolar

depression made me feel like

Diane: I’ve gotta get to the office. I have that presentation.

Jack: No, not like this. You’re upset.

Diane: You know, it’s just too much, okay? Harrison being kidnapped, and then all this mess with ashley. And then all–

[ Diane sighs ]

Jack: And then what?

Diane: Nothing. Nothing. It’ll work itself out.

Jack: No, let me help.

Diane: I– I’ve got it covered. So jack, you’ll– you’ll go to that 12 step meeting?

Jack: I will go to the meeting.

Diane: Okay.

Jack: Diane… please reassure me that we are in a slightly better place than we were when we started this conversation.

Diane: I still need time.

[ Door closing ]

Victoria: Okay, dad, I know there’s no love lost between you and jack, but claire would mostly be dealing with harrison.

Victor: Okay, I understand that, but she’d be in close proximity to both jack abbott and diane jenkins. Jack abbott’s a fool. Diane jenkins is an opportunist. Nothing more.

Victoria: Jack wasn’t partying with mom. He took those pill to shock some sense into her.

Victor: Cole, were you filled in on what happened?

Cole: Victoria told me everything.

Victor: Do you know how close they were to it becoming a total disaster? No, I don’t want claire to be subject to that, okay? I don’t want any of my family to have anything to do with the abbotts ever again.

Victoria: Okay, well we both know that summer is never gonna go along with that.

Victor: That’s another story, okay? Claire has no reason at all to involve herself with that family. Ever.

Kyle: Again, seeing claire was unplanned.

Summer: I got it. But you didn’t have to let him run off with her alone.

Kyle: Harrison was so happy to see her. He wanted to feed the ducks with her.

Summer: Oh yeah, and nothing bad could possibly happen to a small child near a large body of water.

Kyle: Okay, you’re blowing this out of proportion. They were barely out of sight.

Summer: The last time claire was barely out of sight with harrison, he was kidnapped.

Kyle: Summer, you can’t tell me you’re still holding onto the idea that she was involved in that.

Summer: I get it. She was a victim. But she’s still a reminder of everything that harrison went through, and he’s still recovering from the trauma.

Kyle: Yeah, and outings like today will help get things back to normal. Today, I saw a very happy little boy who totally bonded with someone who shared and survived a difficult experience with him.

Summer: Kyle, I was very clear on how I felt about claire spending time with our son.

Kyle: Yeah, and I couldn’t just blow her off once harrison saw her.

Summer: So, you blew me off instead? Just completely disregarded my feelings?

Kyle: Come on, summer.

Summer: No! Negotiating custody with you was difficult enough. I… I don’t know why you’re fighting me on this.

Kyle: I am not fighting you on it.

Summer: You are! I asked for one thing. That you keep claire away from harrison. I didn’t even insist that it be forever, even though that would suit me just fine.

Kyle: That’s hardly fair.

Summer: Do you realize that harrison’s not the only one that’s dealing with trauma? Kyle, every time I see her, I am right back in that place. Terrified that I’m never gonna see my son again. Desperate to find him. Maybe I need to not see claire’s face so that I can recover from the trauma too. I just, I really didn’t think that that was too much to ask. But did you– did you even try to respect my wishes?

Kyle: Summer, I wasn’t–

Summer: No, it was one day ago that I requested this of you. Were you even gonna tell me about this if I hadn’t run into you?

Kyle: I honestly didn’t think it was that huge a deal.

Summer: Right, so my feelings, what I want, just not a big deal to you.

Kyle: Okay. Don’t you think it would have been more upsetting to harrison if we ignored the friend he adores? That if we somehow treat claire as a villain, that it would be confusing to him?

Summer: It’s not that hard. All you had to do was say hi and keep moving.

Kyle: Understood. It’s over. Can we please be done talking about this?

Summer: Yeah, sure. We can be done talking about it. As soon as you tell me what victoria meant before she left. What was that about? (Vo) it’s shrimp your way.

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Kyle: Uh, victoria just wants people to give her daughter a chance.

Summer: That’s great. Doesn’t have to be us.

Kyle: You say that like we’re two random people on the street. You two are cousins, family. I mean, after everything claire’s been through, victoria’s just trying to protect her daughter like you were trying to protect harrison.

Summer: Harrison’s a child, kyle. Claire’s an adult. She can take care of herself. She has the entire newman family to show her love. She does not need you getting involved and dragging our son into it.

Kyle: At the risk of you shoving me into the lake, you’re overreacting.

Summer: So, that’s just it? You’re making unilateral decisions now? No more co-parenting, no more respecting each other’s wishes when it comes to raising our son? You’re just gonna ignore all of my boundaries when it comes to harrison from here on out?

Phyllis: Hey, guys, sorry to interrupt. Um, this little guy wants lunch. I’ll take him if you’d like.

Kyle: No, I’ve got it. How about a dad-style grilled cheese?

Harrison: Yeah.

Kyle: Yeah, let’s do it. We’ll finish this conversation later.

Summer: Oh, I’m gonna come to the house with you just in case claire decides to stop by for another surprise visit.

Victoria: I don’t think we should just dismiss this idea of her being harrison’s nanny just because you’re angry with jack.

Victor: Look, I have my own idea about my granddaughter’s future, all right?

Cole: You do?

Victoria: Oh, yeah, of course. I should have seen this coming.

Cole: Uh, well, does someone want to clue me in?

Victoria: Dad wants for claire what he wants for his children and his grandchildren, of course, to be a part of his legacy.

Victor: My idea is that the best use of claire’s intelligence and skills would be to follow in your footsteps. So, whenever you return to newman, she could become your assistant.

Victoria: Well, there’s a major problem with that.

Victor: What’s the problem?

Victoria: I haven’t decided if or when I will even return to newman.

[ Diane sighs ]

Diane: Not today.

Phyllis: I haven’t even said anything.

Diane: Yeah, well, whatever it is, I don’t want to hear it.

Phyllis: I want to talk to you about kyle.

Diane: What is it?

Phyllis: I just saw him at the park with harrison and claire. I got a problem with kyle.

Diane: Well, stand in line.

Phyllis: Are we possibly on the same side? Do you share summer’s concerns?

Diane: Summer’s concerns?

Phyllis: Yeah, with claire, victoria’s daughter. Um, I thought at first summer was being a little overprotective and high-strung about the whole thing. But, uh, yeah, I just saw them at the park with my own eyes. Claire’s being all palsy-walsy with harrison is very inappropriate. This is, you know, right after harrison was kidnapped by her aunt. I just think it’s weird. That’s all.

Diane: Well, claire was just as much a victim of jordan’s as harrison.

Phyllis: Um, yeah, whatever.

[ Phyllis sighs ] Don’t you think it’s weird? Someone with claire’s history. She just got out the psych ward, diane. That she’s spending so much time with harrison, a sweet, vulnerable little boy. I mean, what exactly is that about? (Vo) you might be used to living with your albuterol asthma

Victor: You’re not returning to newman? You can’t mean that.

Victoria: Not anytime soon, at least.

Victor: Don’t you realize that claire’s just in the process of finding herself? And you should damn well come back to newman, for heaven’s sake.

Victoria: Daddy, I want to focus on claire. I want to get to know her better. I mean, this is all just still so new.

Cole: With jordan dead, along with her threats, this is a chance for us to really help claire settle in with her new life. To help her figure out just what her purpose is going forward.

Victoria: The kids are going to be home soon. I want her to know them. I’ve got to prep her for that.

Victor: None of that prevents claire from working at newman enterprises. And none of that prevents you from coming back. I want claire to have a structured life. A job where she has fun, where she’s excited, she’s challenged. That’s the way you have felt at newman enterprises ever since you’ve worked here.

Victoria: But claire isn’t me and I want her to do what makes her happy.

Victor: Oh, come on now. This damn nanny job, what the hell kind of job is that? That’s not a long-term job. That’s not how you plan your future. She belongs at newman. With you. As your assistant. And I don’t want her anywhere near jack abbott.

Cole: Why not?

Victor: Because I said so.

Victoria: Dad?

Victor: What?

Victoria: Are you planning some kind of retaliation against jack for what happened to mom?

Victor: That son of a bitch almost ruined your mother’s life.

[ Summer chuckles ]

Kyle: Oh. You really didn’t need to come.

Summer: Well, there’s no place I’d rather be. Hanging out with my favorite little guy.

[ Summer laughs ] Jack. Didn’t expect to see you home on a work day.

Kyle: Dad’s working from home today. You all right?

Jack: Yeah, how could I not be? My favorite grandson just walked in. How were things at the park?

Harrison: We fed the ducks.

Jack: Oh, lucky ducks.

Harrison: You’re funny.

Summer: And now I think it’s time for someone to feed himself. Ready for that grilled cheese?

Harrison: Yes.

Summer: Let’s go.

Kyle: Dad, are you sure you’re all right?

Jack: Yeah, I’ll be fine.

Kyle: Hey, you know I know you pretty well. Putting me off only makes me try harder.

Jack: I don’t want to drag you into all this.

Kyle: Too late. I’ve never seen mom this upset with you. I want to help.

Jack: Your mother’s dealing with a lot of stress right now. Harrison’s kidnapping took a lot out of all of us. She’s still struggling. She’s on edge.

Kyle: That might be part of it. But you did almost die last night.

Jack: And I’m sorry she told you about those details.

Kyle: And I’m glad she did. The idea that we almost lost you… dad, thank god we didn’T. It makes sense that mom’s upset, but her anger towards you… the hurt? I mean, it’s next level. Is there something else you need to tell me? Is your relationship in trouble? Because if it is, I hope you know you can talk to me about it.

Diane: Phyllis, I just don’t want to get into this with you right now.

Phyllis: Oh, wow. Okay, I’m sorry. I’m expressing concern about our youngest family member, our grandbaby. So how awful of me, right?

Diane: No, you are stirring up trouble because you just can’t help yourself and you’ve decided that claire is your latest target.

Phyllis: We could have a situation on our hands.

Diane: We don’T. You have no restraint, no boundaries. Well, I am drawing one right now.

Phyllis: Claire could be a threat to harrison.

Diane: Or not. You know what? My family just went through a terrifying ordeal, and we’ve had enough drama, so why don’t you just stay in your own lane?

Phyllis: Um, summer’s my daughter, so I’m very much in my lane. She needs to know what her kid is up against.

Diane: Well, apparently you and your daughter have already decided that claire is a problem. Why don’t you give her the benefit of the doubt?

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? Her aunt is a lunatic. In and out of the psych ward? This girl could be a psycho in training for all we know.

Diane: Oh, my god, phyllis, do you hear these words coming out of your mouth? You and I have both been seen as psychos at different points of our lives. Oh, yes, we have. So all this finger pointing, it’s not a good look for either of us. ()

Phyllis: Listen, you, before you go off on me, from somebody who’s been epically demonized and criticized for my truth, I really wanted to see claire’s point of view.

Diane: It all comes back to you.

Phyllis: I understood claire. You know, empathized with her. I really did. And I told summer, stop being so overreactive, take a step back, don’t judge her, but… honestly, this girl… tried to kill her family. She’s a wild card.

Diane: She was brainwashed, and she’s gotten help, and the newmans have welcomed her with open arms.

Phyllis: Yeah, but the newmans are adults who can fend for themselves with a wild card. Harrison cannot do that.

Diane: Yeah, but it’s not up to you.

[ Phyllis sighs ]

Phyllis: Listen, I wish, I wish that claire’s completely rehabilitated. I really do. But that doesn’t mean she has to be involved with our grandson.

Diane: I really don’t see that happening.

Phyllis: Hey, did you know that kyle thought it was a super-duper idea to have claire be harrison’s nanny?

Diane: What?

Phyllis: Yeah!

Diane: Kyle wouldn’t put his son in danger.

Phyllis: Oh, really? Well, listen to this. Summer wanted to err on the side of caution, so she politely requested to kyle to keep that woman away from her son, and guess what happened?

Diane: I don’t know, but you’re dying to tell me.

Phyllis: Yeah, I was just at the park, and um, kyle was there with harrison and claire. They’re out there looking at ducks or something, despite summer’s very, very reasonable request to keep claire away from harrison.

Diane: All right, phyllis, this is up to kyle and summer to figure out.

Phyllis: I know, but you see, kyle doesn’t really care what summer has to say, so now we have to intervene. You and me, and possibly jack.

Diane: No, no, no, no, that’s enough. We are not going to intervene about any of this, and I am not about to tell jack about it either.

Phyllis: What is going on with you?

Diane: Nothing. I am– I am late for a meeting at the office.

Jack: Your mother feels I went too far, chose to put my life on the line to save nikki, of all people, and needless to say, that didn’t sit well.

Kyle: You saw a friend who needed help. You did what you thought you had to do to save her. I understand why you did it, even if I hate you took the risk.

Jack: I know it seems extreme, but I just felt I had no options.

Kyle: Mom doesn’t feel that way.

Jack: No, she does not.

Kyle: And she’s really broken up about it. Playing into all the what-ifs, how it could have gone wrong, even if it didn’T.

Jack: I understand her upsets. I regret hurting her, I really do, but some part of me wants to think she will eventually understand why I did what I did.

Kyle: What if that doesn’t happen?

Jack: When I walked in on the two of you earlier, you seemed to be dealing with a lot more than her anger toward me. When I talked with her later, she brought up another thing that was bothering her. Could you perhaps be that other thing?

Kyle: Mom’s convinced herself that I am trying to undermine her at work. I try to help her when she makes mistakes, but instead of seeing it as teamwork or showing gratitude, she accuses me of being out to get her.

Jack: She’s not making mistakes, kyle. Her work has been impeccable. You are the one creating this scenario.

Kyle: That makes no sense.

Jack: It makes sense if you are still feeling resentful about my choosing your mother over you for the ceo position.

Victor: I am not planning a damn thing, all right? I want to protect my granddaughter as I protect everyone in this family. Jack abbott is this far away from being addicted again. What if he starts popping pills? Do you think I want claire near that?

[ Victoria sighs ]

Cole: Okay, well, I guess we know where he stands.

Victoria: Classic dad.

Cole: Now listen, is this really about jack being sober or not?

Victoria: I think this is about jack being the reason that mom is serious about getting sober.

Cole: All right, is it passive resentment or is it something else?

Victoria: There’s definitely nothing passive about this. Dad can deny it all he wants, but he is definitely planning something and he doesn’t want us anywhere near the abbotts when it happens.

Jordan: Victor! Victor! Tell me what you want and let me out of here!

Announcer: Next week on the young and the restless…

Sally: How do you know when it’s finally time to cut and run?

Alan: Well, I’m afraid it’s worse than I thought. There’s obviously more than one personality at play here, and the one I just spoke to is… rather concerning.

Lily: I have been very loyal to jill, and this is a complete betrayal. So, we have to respond accordingly.

Nate: You do realize she’s going to explode when we do this, right?

Devon: I don’t care. She dropped a bomb on us and we’re going to return the favor.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


thank you so much for all this. I, um — I guess we should probably finish it up and get on our way? You in a hurry? ‘Cause I’m not. I — I like having you here. I enjoy your company. Well, I have a personal belief that no one should ever have to dine alone. Well, lucky me.

[ Laughs ] The ties between pikeman and the wsb go back to your early days as an agent, anna, in the ’80s. I can tell you flat out I’ve never had anything to do with pikeman. Jack brennan, who — who ended his rather brief tenure as head of the wsb by being shipped off to pentonville — he could tell you more. It’s alleged that he was running both pikeman and wsb. Unless you think that I’m the new head of pikeman and that, by packing him off to prison, I was making a big power grab. Anything is possible.

[ Knock on door ] Come in.

[ Door opens ] You wanted to see me, commissioner? I did, yes. Um, I just wanted to check in, you know, since it was my bright idea to have you apply for the police academy. Detective bennett — he thinks that your performance in class and training exercise is outstanding. So I just wanted to check in with you personally. Uh, first of all, I want to thank you. It would have never occurred to me to become a police officer, but every day I’m more certain that this is where I’m supposed to be. Why do you feel certain? The men and women in my class are exceptional. I’m very proud to stand next to them. Ah. And the other officers — you know, the rank and file — how’s that going? Uh, it’s getting better, mostly thanks to detective chase. He’s really gone out of his way to take me under his wing and smooth the way a bit. Oh, good. Yes, yes. He’s very well liked and well respected, so I’m sure that the other officers will trust his judgment. That’s good. Uh, he invited me to his wedding tomorrow. Ah. Can you attend? Wouldn’t miss it. Mm. My sentiments exactly, yeah. I’m sure I’ll run into you there. Will that be all, commissioner? One other thing. Have you had any interaction with detective falconeri? Hey. Sorry for making you wait. Hey. What’s going on? Dante, you’re not gonna believe it. What? I finally got some answers from jason about what he’s been up to the last few years. Jason is an fbi informant. Mr. Morgan. The fbi has some questions for you. Yeah? Well, you don’t have to follow official procedure, cates. Nobody’s here but us. I still have questions. Why was carly visiting the former director of the wsb in pentonville? What did you tell her?

what did you say to carly? Did you mention pikeman or brennan to her? No. Then why did she drive out to pentonville? I don’t know. This is the first time I’m hearing about it. Why was she visiting brennan of all people? What was she hoping to find out? I just told you, I don’t know. If you even hinted to carly that you’ve been tasked with finding evidence against pikeman, it violates our agreement. I only took the agreement to protect carly. Why would I turn around and give her information that puts her at risk? Well, I could just sit here all day — if I didn’t have a dozen phone calls to make. I know how that goes. I would imagine you’re a pretty busy man. Okay. I know you were waiting for someone when I showed up. Who would have the audacity to stand you up? Well, I didn’t get stood up. It’s just — it was ava, you know, the one that you met at my place. Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. I brought her here. I said something she didn’t like, and she got upset. She stormed off. So, um… she missed out, but, uh, I didn’T. Well, it was a lovely meal. And the conversation was equally so. It’s amazing how that works.

[ Laughs ] Do you think things will have calmed down by the time you get home?

My home, not ava’S. You see, I brought her and my daughter, avery, to my home because — basically, for avery’s sake. But at first it worked out, and now it’S… not really. Yeah. No, I get it. I get it. I mean, when a relationship is ending or transitioning, that’s hard enough, but when kids are involved, it’s just so complicated. Sounds like you’ve been through it. Yeah, well, my husband and I are separated. Ah. That’s alison’s father. And then I have son from a previous relationship. Remember I told you that my family’s complicated? Mm. Mm-hmm. Life’s a long and winding road.

[ Groans ] Full of all kinds of paths and forks not taken. Ugh. [ Laughs ] Well, I do hope that — that it’s a little calmer when you get back. Well, either that or, you know, I’m gonna go home to an empty apartment.

[ Laughs ] Ava could be packing as we speak. But as long as we — we sip this coffee really slowly… it will give her enough time, you know?

[ Laughing ] Okay. Some of the print on this bottle has rubbed off. I’m planning an extensive trip, and I just want to know how many refills are left for my husband’s prescription of lorphenadine. We’re gonna be out of the country, you see, and I think maybe we should be stocking up. Actually, I wouldn’t mind a little more information about the drug itself. Well, normally, I wouldn’t disclose this information, but since you’ve gone to all this trouble, I can at least take a little look. Mm. Dante and I haven’t had much interaction. I think we both have the same avoidance strategy. Is he icing you out? No, nothing like that. He nods hello when I walk through the squad room, but otherwise he pretends I’m not there. So, you say you have, uh, the same avoidance strategy. Why are you avoiding him? Dante is senior detective. He also just got shot in the line of duty. He’s highly respected here. But he’s also sonny’s son. And everyone here knows I worked for sonny for more than a year. So if we get seen together too much, people might think we’re working together on sonny’s behalf. A lot of people already suspect me of that, so why put it on dante? Do you have any reservations about dante, like maybe… suspicions that he might act on his father’s behalf? Look, I’m only telling you until we figure out what to do with this information. Jason saved my life. He… he must have been with the shooter when they were trying to take out sonny. That’s got to be the reason why the sniper missed. Jason said that he has been working undercover while he’s been away, that he’s been working under an assumed identity. Still? He’s working undercover? What’s he doing right now? I don’t know his exact role, but he’s working with agent john cates. Oh, my god. What? My god. Sam, I-I-I — I knew this. I already knew that jason was an fbi informant. What do you mean? How? My father told me.

mr. Corinthos has four refills left. Mm. That’s what I thought. I just wanted to be sure. As per usual, I’ll call the prescribing doctor when it’s time to renew unless I hear anything else. So, will that be all, mrs. Corinthos? As you know, my husband just started taking this new drug. I do have some concerns about it. Really? Well, um… um, lorphenadine was recently approved by the fda, but it’s highly effective and safe in combination with other drugs like lithium in the treatment of bipolar disorder. Uh, have you discussed your concerns with his doctor? Not yet. I didn’t want it to seem like I’m undermining the doctor. Sonny is very comfortable with him. I’m sure it’s fine. I do wonder, though, what would happen if a patient, for whatever reason, didn’t take the medication as prescribed or took less than the prescribed dosage. Because, as I’m sure you know, mistakes do happen. Maybe you should go home and talk to ava and try to resolve things. You know what? I was being flip. Ava’s fine. We just got in a stupid argument. Mm. I was invited to go to some social event. She wasn’t invited. I couldn’t push it because it was the bride’s family calling the shots. It was a wedding, right? So then I didn’t even know ava wanted to go, and then she says she wants to go. I made it clear — “you can’t go.” And then she, you know, got upset, stormed off, like I said, and that’s basically that. Yeah. I mean, but I get it. I empathize. You know, it’s a pretty terrible feeling, feeling like you’re being excluded. Who would exclude you?

[ Both laugh ] Well, thank you, but… come on. …Um, you know, I am a newbie in a new town, and it’s a town that’s got a very tight-knit social set. So, you know… alison’s going to her manager’s wedding, and, you know, she might even be performing. I don’t even know. And so, you know, obviously, kristina is her plus one, so I miss out. Brook lynn quartermaine’s wedding? Mm-hmm. That’s what I was talking about.

[ Laughs ] Everything you’ve done up until this point has been for carly, so it doesn’t make any sense you’d involve her in this. I wouldn’T. Well, that leaves us with a big problem. Why was carly at pentonville? Could carly and brennan have some kind of understanding? No. I doubt that. They know each other. Brennan was arrested at bobbie’S. Well, then it was kelly’S. Carly was the only other person there. She never said anything about this? I never asked. Ask her now. Why? Before he was incarcerated, jack brennan was career wsb. He rose all the way to director. It can’t be a coincidence that he lands in port charles and starts cultivating sonny’s ex-wife. Carly must be useful to him somehow. Or — and this seems much less likely — he’s of use to her. Either way, it’s in both of our best interests to find out. I’ll leave it to you to figure out how. Do you think dante might be protecting sonny? I asked you first. No. No. Not consciously, anyway. But he might have an unconscious bias in sonny’s favor. I saw enough of their relationship when I worked for sonny to know that he and dante are close. Sonny was estranged from michael, so he relied on dante, even though he was a cop. I’ve seen them interact as family. They’re easy and relaxed around each other. They trust each other. I don’t think dante would deliberately look the other way if sonny committed a crime. But I do think maybe, when dante looks at sonny, he — he just sees what he wants to. Mm. Thank you for your perspective. Yeah. To be clear, I think dante is an incredible officer. He’s the kind of cop that I want to be. Yeah. There’s no one better you could emulate. No one. Okay, that’s all. Thank you.

[ Door closes ]

[ Cellphone ringing ] Yeah. Hi. What’s up? Alright. I’m coming over. Wait. You knew that jason was working for the fbi and you didn’t say anything to me? I didn’t remember. It just hit me with all the things you were saying. I-I — I don’t know. I mean, I was out of it in the hospital. I’d just woken up. I don’t know who I saw or what I said. Well, I hope you remember me. Of course I remember you. But now I remember sonny was there. He came into my room. He told me that, yeah, jason was working as an informant for the fbi. And then jason came in my room and told me the same thing. It must have been these meds. Okay, well, that actually tracks to what jason said because he said that he and sonny aren’t close anymore. I just couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that sonny would actually think that jason would turn his back on him. Well, yeah, if he’s working for agent cates, sonny would consider that betrayal.

[ Exhaling sharply ] Joss. Hi. What are you doing here? I’m, uh, obviously working out.

[ Chuckles ] Um, I just heard about the challenge, the, um, stadium run without the stadium. You want to race? Only if I get a head start. You’re already warmed up. Absolutely not. Hey, no cheating! You know, agent cates and I — we didn’t get off to such a hot start. I didn’t trust him. He didn’t trust me. He said he was trying to protect sonny. I didn’t believe that for a second. Well, yeah, because why would the fbi be protecting a mob boss? Although I-I believe it, though, but I think it’s probably secondary to whoever’s behind those hits. This is bigger than my father. You know, these four crime lords that were taken out — big cities, major transportation hubs. Some sort of smuggling ring? I’ve been doing some digging on my own. And what sticks out — these were not mob hits. I know it’s last minute, uh, but I do have a plus one. If you want to go to the wedding with me, I’d love to take you. Uh — wait, what?

[ Laughs ] That is just so — that’s so generous. But I don’t want to impose. I mean, this is — especially at this late date. You met lois. Yeah.She’s a close friend of mine. All I got to do is tell her that I’m bringing somebody else. Unless you don’t — you don’t want to be seen with me.

[ Laughs ] And I understand. No, it’s just so, um — I mean, are you sure? Uh, yes. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have asked. We can be like a mom and dad posse for both of our children. They’ll love that.

[ Both laugh ] Um… yes. Alright. Yeah. I accept with pleasure. Thank you so much.

[ Laughs ] Okay, wait a minute. Um… that means I need to come up with a dress, shoes, and I got to somehow talk my way into a hair salon appointment, so I think — so I’m out of here.

[ Laughs ] Alright. I’ll let you know what time… okay. …And the whole thing. Alright. And thank you again. I mean, honestly, thank you again for everything, the lovely meal, the — your thoughtfulness. I’m just — I’m really looking forward to tomorrow. So, bye for now. Alright. Yeah. Thank you. I assure you I take quality control very seriously. I’m sure you do. But we’re all human. It seems you’re concerned about your husband’s dosage. Well, I don’t stand over my husband and make sure he takes his medication on time. What if he doesn’t? What if he takes less than the prescribed dosage? What if he skips? Could his behavior change? For example, could he become aggressive? Or even violent? That would depend on his behavior patterns when he’s not medicated. Symptoms could return, but that’s beyond my scope. I’m a pharmacist. I’m not a physician. I was hoping you could ease my mind before the big trip. Well, uh, what I can tell you is that it’s important a person on mood-stabilization medication take their medication regularly. And while unmedicated bipolar disorder may manifest in behavioral issues, people generally don’t become ax murderers overnight.

[ Chuckles ] That’s good. Ax murders are, uh, definitely to be avoided.

[ Chuckles ] Have you noticed any change in your husband’s behavior? Why do you ask? Well, if you’re worried about him not taking his dosage, you should speak with him — and his doctor. That’s not necessary. You know, this is a new drug and all, and I had some — some questions about it, so I thought I’d — I’d come to the expert. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain things to me. Thank you for all you continue to do for my husband. I’m glad I could help. And good luck with the trip. Hey. Hey. Thanks for coming. Yeah. What’s so urgent? Okay, so, I need all the information that you have on brennan’s arrest here in port charles. Oh, it was relatively uneventful, you know? Dante and I — we made the arrest at bobbie’S. Yeah. Was carly there? Mm-hmm. Yeah. Why? Did she say something to you about it? No. No. Cates did. That’s strange. Well, he was asking why carly would visit brennan at pentonville. She did what? Wait. He didn’t tell you? No. God. I don’t know. John is not very big on sharing. But then that’s fine because there’s a lot about this supposedly joint investigation that I haven’t been sharing with him. More to the point, it’s actually very concerning that carly would visit brennan. Why exactly? Because when we made the arrest, it looked as if brennan was going to kidnap her. The man had zip ties in his pocket. I mean, this is months ago, but why would she suddenly take it upon herself to go see him now?

[ Sighs ] There’s only one thing I can think of. She thinks she’s helping me.

Whew! Okay. Okay. That’s nice. You know, for a second there, I thought you were gonna let me win. Oh, and face your wrath? Well, thank you for respecting me enough to beat me. Two out of three? No way, no. Okay. It’s a good thing you’re not at the academy. You would kill yourself trying to finish first in everything. Like you don’t finish first in everything. Well, not everything. No, false modesty, please.

[ Breathes deeply ] It’s going good, though? It’s — it’s all good? Yeah. Yeah, things are good. I had to face down a lot of people’s doubts, including my own, but… it turns out if you stick with things and don’t walk away, they get better. Why would carly think she was helping you by going to see brennan? Well, a couple days ago, I was with carly. John shows up. And carly wanted to call diane. I said, “don’T. I’ll take care of it. Just leave.” Well, she didn’t want to leave. So, I’m sure she found a spot to eavesdrop in on our conversation.

[ Sighs ] Which was what? Which was john talking a lot about brennan and pikeman and possible ties with sonny. John didn’t mention you working for pikeman, did he? I made sure he didn’t just in case carly was listening. Oh, thank god you know her so well. Alright, so, what do you think it’s likely that she overheard john say? Well, he went on to talk about brennan being arrested with a pikeman guy. Yeah. Hume. Oh, no. Ohh. God. I hope you’re wrong about this. Because if carly knows that the fbi is investigating this pikeman/brennan connection and she inadvertently gives brennan that information, then she just made our job exponentially harder. These four crime figures that were taken out — it wasn’t by rivals or disgruntled lieutenants. It was all done the same way — long-range, professional, clean sniper shots. Which backs up your belief that jason did something to prevent the sniper from killing sonny. Right. The other thing is, these — these bosses that were taken out — it’s not like the organizations collapsed afterwards. The next in line took over with almost no interruption to the organizations, which tells me that this wasn’t to cause chaos or some kind of takeover from outside forces. So, if not that, then what was it for? I’m definitely not gonna lose any sleep over any dead mob bosses, but I do care about sonny. And I know that you care about him, too. And, dante, I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but I — I care about jason, too. And I believe him when he said that he didn’t stay away voluntarily, that he was coerced. And I think that we should help him. Actually, I — I want to help him, dante. Danny can’t lose his father again.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Exhales heavily ]

[ Sighs ] Surprised to see you here since you stormed off at the restaurant. Oh, yeah, I’m — I’m really sorry about that, sonny. It was so silly of me to let my feelings get hurt over a social event. You know, of course I understand why the cerullos and falconeris don’t want me there. That’s the point I was trying to make, ava! I know. I know. I realize that.

[ Sighs ] I’m embarrassed, actually. I like to think I have pretty thick skin, and I do with most people, but… not with you lately. Sonny, I’m — I’m so appreciative of how we’ve been able to connect and come to trust each other. I really care about our relationship. And that’s why, for avery’s sake, it is time for me to move out.

So, how’s school? You on summer break yet? Just about. Um, I’ve turned in most of my labs and my papers. I have a few exams left. But I actually just got a new summer job at the metro court. I’m gonna be a lifeguard there. That’s more fun than working at the front desk. Yeah, I know, right? I hope it’s fun. I just thought you’d have some high-powered internship lined up. Well, I’ve thought about it, but, um, I’m actually in the middle of switching my major. I’m glad you figured it out. So, what do you want? For your major. Oh, um, well, I’ll be taking some of the same labs and classes as last year, just with a different concentration — environmental science. Sounds like a good fit. God, really? I feel like I’m so late to change my major.

[ Sighs ] Just trust yourself, joss. I have no doubt that you could save the entire planet if you set your mind to it. Are you sure this sudden need to move out has nothing to do with what happened earlier? Yes and no. Once I cooled down, I realized that the most important thing here is the — the friendship that we’ve developed over these last months. Yeah. I really value that, sonny. Plus, I don’t want to ever put avery in the stressful situation of watching her parents fighting, right? So, it’ll take me a few days to find the right living situation for the two of us, one that meets the terms of our shared custody agreement, of course. Is this really what you want, ava, is you want another place? Well, I was looking for a place of my own… right. …After I sold wyndemere, right? And then you wanted us here when we were under threat. But that threat seems to be gone. And I’m starting to feel like I’m overstaying my welcome. Did I ever say that, ava? No. Then don’t put words in my mouth. I like having avery here, taking her to school, putting her to bed, um… what about me? What about you? I like having people around. I like — you know, I like the company. But just so you know, I didn’t ask you to leave. That was your call. So, if you want to… get a place… I’ll help you get a place. But just for the record… …I like the way things are. I hope you understand why I want to help jason. Of course I do, baby. You have a history together. He’s danny’s father. I’m not — look, I’m not threatened by any of that stuff. Danny is a big part of this, but it’s more than that. When you were in the hospital and I found out that jason was on that roof and everyone thought he was the shooter — I thought he was the shooter — I was so angry and cold to him. I was just so terrified that I was gonna lose you. I wanted someone to pay, and I had lost all faith in jason. So you want to make amends. You want to help. Yeah. I mean, I suppose I do. I know that jason loves danny. And danny has obviously formed some sort of a bond with jason. It’s just that danny needs his father in his life. 100% he does. He needs his father. And I feel like I owe jason. I just don’t know how to help him. Well, we’re gonna figure that out together… uh-huh. …’Cause that’s what we do. Mm. The thing is, I don’t know what this is. Like, this can’t be just a simple undercover operation the fbi has got jason doing. Okay. Well, we need to figure out exactly what it is that the fbi has on jason. So far, the fbi has been under the radar. And you being found out to be who you are didn’t actually rattle pikeman’s cages too much. Yeah, well, cates thinks they’ll still target me ’cause I know too much. Pikeman obviously doesn’t know that you were with the fbi. So that’s a good thing, at least.

[ Sighs ] And you are absolutely certain? You never told carly that you were undercover with pikeman? No, absolutely not. I want her to stay out of this. Yeah, well, that ship’s sailed. Alright. So, in all probability, brennan now knows that the fbi is on his trail, which means that we’re blown. And that’s a big problem ’cause brennan’s tentacles — they reach from pentonville to pikeman to wsb to god knows where. Are you afraid of this guy? Brennan’s a bit of a charmer, you know. Very smooth. Yeah. But behind those sparkling eyes is a mind constantly working, processing, reading everything, everyone in the room. He is very smart. He’s very shrewd. And we all learned as trainees that the most dangerous weapon was to give brennan information of any kind. Okay. So, what do we do now? We just wait for him to make a move? How do we know he’s gonna make a move? He will. He will? Yeah. He’ll find his target, and then he’ll act. And the fbi won’t know what hit them. I think what we need to do is find out exactly what carly told brennan. Cates said the same thing. There’s one problem. I can’t be the one to do it.


So, I thought I would escape taking bio chem by switching to environmental science, when, actually, I have to still take environmental chem, which is just as difficult, and I have to do all of the papers, all of the labs,

and I have to get my master’s after my undergrad degree. There’s no escaping it. You’re gonna have to be awesome. Thank you. And thank you for what you said earlier. It means a lot. I should go. Yeah. Me too. Um… hey, joss. It was really good to see you. It was really good to see you. Take care. Thank you, sonny. I know avery wants to stay, and… so do I. And, you know, I realized something. I’ve let myself become a bit of a recluse since the nikolas thing. And after I sold wyndemere, I wanted a fresh start, but, really, other than the gallery, I don’t get out too much.

[ Chuckles ] I guess that’s why I made the assumption about brook lynn’s wedding. Well, you don’t have to be cooped up in here or the gallery all the time. You should get out, have fun. I mean, you were always the social type. You don’t have to crimp your style on my account.

[ Laughing ] That’s — that’s some solid advice. Thank you. So, is there anything I can do to help you get ready for the wedding? I can get you a tie or I can get a gift. How about a painting from the gallery, even? Cash is king. There’s a lot of ties that I don’t even wear, so… mm. But thank you for that. How about I give you a ride? I can drop you off. I can pick you up. That way, frank doesn’t have to waste the day waiting around outside the wedding and the reception. No, I can drive myself. Besides, blaze’s mother is coming as my plus one. Oh. Natalie, right? Natalia. Yeah, blaze and kristina are going, so I thought it would be nice to include blaze’s mother. That’s very generous of you.

[ Laughs ] Yeah. Hey. Alright. I get you want to help. It’s important to you. It’s important to danny. And — and please don’t get angry at me for saying this, but I think you should stay out of it. Wait a minute. You just said that you have some digging of your own to do, which means you don’t know the whole story. No, I don’T. I don’T. But I can tell it’s a delicate situation. And you get involved with cates and the feds, and then maybe you’re in the line of fire and — look, there’s — there’s nothing you can do. Oh, no, I have a hard time accepting “there’s nothing you can do” as a policy. But you’re carly’s best friend. Who better than you to find out what she knows and what she’s done? You just answered your own question. Carly can read me like a book. If I question her, she knows something’s up. And even if I mention brennan, that’s it. She’ll decide she can help me by working him for information. Oh, god. We don’t want that. No, she cannot suspect anything more than she already does. So we have to find a way to stop carly from doing anything else to help me. Alright. Well, if you can’t question her, then… I’ll have to talk to her myself.

On the next “General Hospital” —
